"martavis bryant" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"The bengals one of the better single high safety in the league in jessie bates He's one of the top single high safety in the nfl Minkah fitzpatrick i think is a better overall player. But i would put bates ahead of patrick. If you're only doing like a cover one where you got one. Deep safety betas better. He covers a lot of ground. He's very smart about how he moves. And we're facing that we're facing. That would at a time where the steelers are being successfully defended by single safeties. Because we're not. Seeing ben rothlisberger and these wide receivers beat the deep reliably enough to make them consider putting two guys back there. And i brought this up because a lot because that's what we used to always see for. Ben rothlisberger ben. Rothlisberger was exactly that do that. If you put single high stakes especially against the bengals the bengals used to do it. Martavis bryant they put a guy out in man on martavis bryant with just one just one safety deep and ben would absolutely destroy them throughout the game until they backed off a second saiki to put multiple players deep. He always did that. That was one of his great strength. That's why the pump fake was so dangerous and how he looked safety so dangerous because if you played single high safety and we had a deep threat on the outside you were toast like you're just if if if that wide receiver wants his release you're done and right now. The steelers have one of the better threats. They've had i think the best. Threaten chase capel. They've had since mike wallace and yet it's not working because you don't see don't see see ben challenging the free safety and all right now you see all of throws out to the sideline out like hey taste goat young joe jump over guy including pass this last game where chase clayton. We'll have the jump over the cornerback. Because ben through to the leverage of the cornerback when there was no one in the middle. And you're just like that's you know is this is this is that one bad throw. Is that one bad read. But it's been two seasons of this. You know this is the second season of this and you really have to start asking like hey is is this now ben rothlisberger. Is this thirty nine year. Old ben rothlisberger at is he not going to be able to to carry a team. That doesn't have an offensive line. The he can't do that then. The offensive line has to get it together or this offense is going to be. I mean right now. The offense is awful. Our offense is is kind of trash. And is it going to get better. That's like something either quarterback or the offensive line get drastically better than they have been recently. And that's that's a big question. Mark this important conversation That i think we need to continue here you look at the steelers offense therefore deep it receiver. I don't know how many teams can rival that they're tight ends. I generally think they got a dude and pat far. And i still think eric. Rania has his talents. Nausea is a really really good running back prospect. At honestly. I feel like if you stuck him on the browns He up there with the league. Leader said behind any good offense align really. He looks all that but he's getting eaten alive by By poor performances. In front of him You mentioned ben rothlisberger specifically could we be looking at. What is kind of the end here for big. Ben is this. Is this training in the wrong direction. Is there anything he can do. Or is the hay in the barn really and it's time to just kind of take the old horse round back. Wow well white. Michael taken a little farther than the i would. Just let him retire. You know i'm personally not for capital funds. I'm sorry i understand your analogy. I just i'm i'm messing with you I i think we're there. You know like last season peyton manning. We're not that bad with ben. Ben is not what peyton manning was his very last season where they won the super bowl in spite of him of but also this team with that offensive line like you said we have a ton of skill position talent. We have a really young offensive. Line that right now each. You know it's like we've got a souped up sports car But the offensive line is the engine and the engine is is unreliable in the the driver is is a little old in his. You know puttering around. It's it's not a performance gar at this point because it doesn't it doesn't have a great driver and it doesn't have a great engine I think is the offensive line can get it together. This team can still be some. That's where we've been this whole season. I'm sticking with that if this offensive line can get together and get get become a good offensive line before ben rothlisberger gets hurt then then. This team can be something if not. You're dealing with an offensive line. That is is not good enough and a quarterback that needs a good offensive line to be good. And i think he can still be great if he has that offensive line. I think at this point of his career. Those hits hurt enough. They stick with him you know. And and they carry from game to game. He's not he's got a peck injury. He doesn't already got it like he's just you know. Your old was argued that your body doesn't heal like it used to. You're gonna be sore is going to hints are gonna gonna wear and they're going to build up the bangs and little little problems are going to build up more than they used to and so this very very well could be could be it. A we looked bleak. One like we had a defense could carry this team until that point but then you know you lose some players and it's not that defense anymore it can't carry it. I don't know. I don't know it's really weird place. Look at this bengals game. And i'm like you know this could be get right game for the steelers because it's the bengals because it's another game you know heinz field or we could get a couple of players back we you know we have. We have their coach. I think we have him pretty much figured out Unless he changes things up but again martinez added a new threat with the deep ball. I'd like to. I don't know where we are in this game. It has to be a get right game or this season is in real trouble now. We are approaching the first half hour mark of our show here today so before we get to our special guests on. I'm curious what your final score can. Thoughts are after the steelers second home game of the year against the cincinnati bengals. I oh man.

"Is five free agent wide receivers out there that are veteran wide receivers that thank you Get for cheap again. Okay, so they got Cam Newton for next to nothing bag of balls. They got Kevin. For whose M V p count. It makes no sense. Richard German called It disgusting. I concur. Richard Sherman I There's no reason Cam Newton is getting paid $1.1 million as his minimum guaranteed. By the way. That's his minimum guarantee. It'll go up because everybody knows that he's going to be the starter. Everybody knows he's going to play a bunch of games. Everybody knows So that's going to go up to at least five. I don't know how the incentives Airbases 7.5 1,000,000. He's going to make whatever it is But there's veteran water. Seaver's that are out there now trying to get back in the game who are also going to be able to take these crappy? I mean, Martavis Bryant. So if Martavis Bryant is in shape, not granted, Marty's right couldn't wake up to do an interview on our show. So who knows what Martavis Bryant and maybe he was working out? By the way, Martavis Bryant might have been in the middle of a workout so much. What if Marty be get signed up there just like they took a flier on Josh Gordon, just like they took a flier on other guys. What if they signed Martavis Bryant for League Men Bank Now, all of a sudden, they have a deep threat with Julian Adam and Mohammed's two new Sony Michelle. Good offensive line in that tight end that you absolutely had four catches in in Virginia Tech. I mean that now, let's not talk about the defense side about where Bill Belichick sewn it down. I mean, the Patriots always done back in the conversation back in a conversation and they knew it all along. And you Patriots fans knew it all along. That old Bill Belichick figured out they kept saying We trust Bill Belichick with Jared stood him what they should have sentenced. We trust Bill Belichick. That hell Figure out how to make our team goodbye. Time It comes because that's exactly what he did Trust him with my own board. Children still do And you said, Like we're your unborn kid would be much better off with him than with you. Oh, absolutely, 1000% all 10 for you 10 for what he did with that dog, Nike that he's just sitting there. Imagine your kid He's just sitting there. He was drafting a team which, by the way, they took a D seven player in their first pick, I think because they knew what they were doing. Nothing matters to build when we are going to empower Cam New and because we have the most cap space next year, right, So a lot of people think this is a one year mercenary deal, he goes out performs. We have the most money to five years. You could pay him another time before your deal after this about like Cam We'll still have it. Four years from now. I can't believe no other team signed them. So this couldn't happen like I feel like that is a strategy that some teams should take if we don't sign me who's gonna do it? Natured. It's patriots. And guess what? We're all in hell for again. Now, with the Patriots be able to get through. Patrick Mahomes in those points. I don't know where the Patriots be able to get through the Baltimore Ravens. An invoice I don't know. Well, the Patriots be able to get through Philip Rivers in the Indianapolis Colts, which hindsight by the way now I'm not going to get I'm not going to get into. Oh, no. What Bill Belichick took Cam Newton over. Tom Brady, Right? Could've made a deal with Tom Brady. If he want to didn't want to. Let's move on. The coat stuck Philip Rivers over Tom Brady, Okay? So if you look at what No. Belichick took Cam Newton Overfill Rivers took him over. Tom Brady took him over marks. Maybe you could go through all these quarterbacks that were signed that Bill Belichick to sat back on and I said, You know what? God, you can note not June 28th whenever he's worth nothing and the price of those Thie price. Let's get to a break. Please, let's get to a break..

"Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones. Best networks, no contracts. I will get into Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers in just a second. And the reason why I'm going to delay. Because of something that's happened in New York City. You see I was all set. I was annoyed enough. The Pittsburgh Steelers getting rid of Antonio Brown for third run on a fifth round pick the equivalent of Martavis Bryant and AJ McCarron for someone who is a superstar. So one who is arguably the best receiver in all the football who went six consecutive years with at least one hundred one receptions, six consecutive years with at least twelve hundred and eighty seven yards that Antonio Brown as now in Oakland raider. That and Tonio Brown is no longer member of the Pittsburgh Steelers that Antonio Brown. Who was given away as far as I'm concerned for beggar chips and a coke. Let me you. Gotta be kidding me. You gotta be kidding me. But I'll get an all of that in just a second thought that that was enough. Because clearly if you're looking at me right now, you know that was enough to get on my last damn nerves, you know, it, but they're low behold leave it to the New York Knicks. So far away to write my damn nerve. Like only they can I take it back. I shouldn't say day. It's only one man. It's only one may. The man who was who was born on third base heading home. Who have Mazas the silver spoon? The proverbial Silvis spoiled and the mouth. The main. Who runs the Knicks and the Rangers and evidently has been living tax free all of these years in Madison Square Garden. Costinha city. Oh, nearly fifty million a year that guy James Dolan. Just when you I mean, just when you thought it was enough this dude outdid himself, the New York Knicks as more abundant as ever at least this year. We can share about it because they stick on purpose. Okay. They stick on purpose. Because that's what you do when you're after the number one overall pick in the draft your stake on purpose. The New York Knicks. Continuing their in apt ways except on apologetically this year. Obviously you you're going to be in that situation. You're going to have some fans that are not going to take too kindly to it. But take Eulalie when they see Dolan walking around with that damn smirk on his face. Anna faye? Did he curse Dolan? No. Did. He excoriated him and and call him names..

"I think could do I could happen next year. This could happen this offseason bright David elements that we we didn't sign him the trade them right by you could see this type of thing happening. He's got a lot more guaranteed money, but Antonio Brown. One of these things that's come up. Here is Tony Brown was talking about you know, none of my contract was guaranteed this year. He was gonna get whatever that was right. So yes. And the roster bonus. So what was he making around how much on that Steelers, contrary about seventeen million, right? Eighteen million a year? And then the roster bonus I think it was two and a half. We're talking about over twenty million dollars for this year coming up that he would have got whether he got hurt in week one or what he's still would have gotten paid wouldn't of matter, and then the raiders gave him thirty million dollars of guaranteed money. So I mean, it's it's not like the Steelers we're going to get many guaranteed money had no securities in the raiders. Did he got about ten million more guarantee? You would like to think that he would have played at least two more years, and then he would have gotten even more. So yeah. But he won on this. He won. He got more money. And at the end of the day is going to pay more in taxes this year because he's going to be playing in Oakland. And then maybe next year if you know, hopefully, the raiders will be able to get the Vegas and he'll play no state tax in Nevada. Yeah, I'm sure he's thinking about continuing by the time, they get to Vegas because it'd be the face of that franchise, and they get the Vegas is a lot opportunities for in there. I've been talking about this a long time, you know, when you start talking about these numbers, and the numbers that are so significant that you start looking at the tax situations in these states the teams that are in those states without the income tax. Have a distinct advantage, obviously over the other other teams, and then there are certain teams that play in more favorable tax situations than say, New York and California. But for some reason guys want to go to LA, I you know, I mean like, they're they're all gonna end up paying thirteen and a half percent. Maybe a little bit more than that. It's a lifestyle. Right. I mean, that's what it comes down to think about that though. Think about if you go to a Florida team a Texas team Tennessee as opposed to coming to New York or New Jersey or a living in New Jersey now where they want to raise the. You know, the the state tax ten point seven percent over a million dollars as opposed to over the five million dollar threshold. They have right now. I mean that if you are doing your due diligence as your agent or your financial wealth management person. Then you have to talk about those things, and you have to lay it all out for the player to let him see exactly what he like you could actually play for the Miami Dolphins. But at the same amount of money that the giants were offering you and buy yourself, a brand new condo on the beach as opposed to paying it to the New York state taxes system. You see what I'm saying? I do I know I know fully well Antonio Brown was desperate to get out of Pittsburgh. And I'm sure that it was a factor, but for him he ended up in a place that was going to give them more guarantees, and he could get away from the situation did not want to be in any longer. Let's go to Mike in Connecticut who joins us on the fan with Mike and Mike jails morning. I think I think you're wrong about the whole of Nakata's set a pace for the future. Declares boomers entrepreneur. Right. You're seeing with OB J. Well, maybe all right. So this is what I'm saying. There's a couple of guys at it. Could I agree with Odell Beckham junior? He's probably a guy that it could work with. But if you think that there's going to be five six players a year every off season that are in there, a certain contractual situation with one team they're gonna force himself out and teams are going to deal with that. It's not going to happen. The reason why the Steelers had to do it was because it was a big star player. He was a little bit older to remember. He's not a guy was like twenty five years old twenty six years old, and they just went through this Levy on bell thing didn't want another one of those things hanging over him. What these teams can do in these situations and say, we're not trading here. And if you don't show up you're gonna get fined like crazy because a guy who was under contract. It doesn't show up to training camp. And Doug, Trump, the games gets fine. The reason why Levy on bell didn't was because he'd never signed his franchise tender. So it wasn't technically on the roster. So he wasn't subject to find. So I just don't believe the teams are going to give the Steelers did this was a unique situation. I think if much bigger than I think it goes across all sports. I think it's generational. I'm twenty four. These guys are my generation of players where it's an entitlement thing where they don't care. What their coach says they want their money? They want it. Now, they'll sit all day every day. Just to get what they want. Tyree Davis, and you even seen LeBron shoe certain extent, the NBA compare though, the NBA Mike to the NFL because. Yeah, there is one player means that much more to that team success in LeBron did change everything in the NBA and the NFL it's just it's much different. And you could also say even though the Steelers ended up not making the playoffs. There's a lot of reasons for that. But nobody was missing levian bell beginning of the season last year when James Connor was going off. Now, he ended up getting hurt and his year sort of was cut short and was disappointing because of that at the end, but there was a point like week ten or eleven he had better numbers across the board than levian bell had the year before. So I don't know. I just there are certain players. You can get away with it back from junior in the NFL potentially could be one of those guys Antonio Brown. Did it, but beware? If you're a player whose value is the team's going to say, all right? Triumphs triumphs don't show up. Then you're not getting any money at all. And you're gonna have to pay us even more and fine. That's how I would've loved to have seen. Pittsburgh tried to do that. And I wish they would have done that. And I think other owners in the league would have wished they would have done that. And but it just goes to show you this always somebody else that thinks that they can take on the material personality and make it work. And plus they had Ben's back in this. It was also a clash now where they took aside. And that's another reason why they were willing to trade Antonio Brevard. I could definitely see ODA Beckham junior going right down this road. I could definitely see it. And I think they are taking a page out of the NBA players, and I agree with that cry. And I think they're trying to move the needle which look as a former player, I'm actually happy to see this because these are things that we would've fought for back in the eighty s in the eighties for the strike till I'll player to make a decision where he wants to go, especially if he's unhappy that would have never been the case back then. So there are a lot of things that are that are transforming the game on the field and off the field. And this is one of the off the field things. I don't like Halloween down because I think it just it. It speaks to all the things that, you know, nobody really. Wants to talk about and that's the you know, the inner team conflict that took place here. And I think I think it happened after the Denver Bronco game. And when Ben questioned whether or not on that interception. He'd through to a nose tackle at somehow. Antonio Brown didn't run the right route. Anyway. And so what happens Joe is that people Antonio Brown's world here that and because you have now social media, those people on social media all saying Benz calling you out Ben's calling you out. So they are exacerbating the issue now back when I played we didn't have that crap. But we did have family members. And you know, my family heard other family members saying some very unkind things in the stands that were so stupid that you know, you just have to laugh at off. But you have to understand that. That's the mindset that is out there that there are people just going back and forth talking about people talking about you. Yeah. So the reason the Steelers that was a huge deal every week. Remember the offensive lineman. When when Levy on bell was supposed to show up and didn't and they all crush them. Remember that it was a big deal. And and they admitted after the season was over that had hung over him a lot longer than they admitted at the time. So if they were to go through another one of those things with Antonio Brown. They just weren't willing to do that. Plus, it seemed like there was a relationship between the quarterback and the running in the wide receiver that was not going to be repaired. However, if they wanted to and if another player tries to do this there is no way that that player is going to be subject to those fines wanna pay those fines under contract. And then oh, by the way, you now open up the team to go after you're signing bonus. They'll do that too. Because the language in these contracts. God doesn't show up guy wants to hold out. We'll go after you're signing bonus. Yes. I now I understand. So that's now the Steelers gave in because of this unique situation. Try it somewhere else. See how it goes? And see what happens, and I'm telling you right now that these owners these general managers just like the. Players are going. Oh, wow. We can do that the owners and general managers sitting around going. We're not gonna let them do that. They might have done that. Because that's their unique situation. That's not happening here. Try us. We'll see how much you like your money. And the reason why levian bell was different as I said he wasn't under contract when you're not under contract. The franchise tag stuff. Sure. I get it guys can go that route all they want it. They feel like sitting out a year not pay about plane for fourteen million dollars. Whatever that is. That's totally different because you're not under contract guys like Antonio Brown that are under contract yet. It's still swayed way in favor of the team Gretchen. That's why this was a this could be looked at as a seminal moment in the NFL. Yeah. May I don't know. We'll see if we go we go down this road with if I'm telling you the giants have another losing season and Odell Beckham junior gets hurt again. Or whatever happens. You don't think we're going to go down this road with? No, I think that he he is one of the guys that I believe sure without a doubt. Especially if the giants now go and eventually move on from Eli manning at some point. Tyreek hill gets ready to sign his contract. I mean, there's there's a lot of other factors. But I think Odell Beckham JR. One of the handful of guys I think that there could be a similar situation. One of the handful of guys and the giants were looking at trade him, even before they signed the extension, and then might even be looking into it right now as we speak. I mean, he might not even have to try to force himself out for the giants. I want to get rid of them. I'll tell you. It's a cautionary tale for the giants though, it really is. Because it's the same type of personality. It's the same type of guy that feels like he's under appreciated and underpaid. Well, not underpaid anymore. You can't feel that. Well, now, he probably does after watching what Antonio Brown just did just sign this contract. You can't feel like he's underpaid come on underpaid. You just got the richest contract. No, I can't I can't tell you. What's going on in the minds of these guys? Yeah. But we already have proof positive that. It's not all that stable. Clearly, although some people will say that didn't Tony brand. This was genius. What Antonio Brown tapes. I mean, I don't know. I mean, there's other things that are going on in his life. That makes me think this is not genius. And this is a little bit more coonass than genius. But people say look look what he did. This was a mastermind thing. I mean, if anything drew Rosenhaus did a nice job tell you one thing he'd bet on himself and he won. And I get I bet you that meeting with the Rooney family down in Florida. Right. Prior to the combine that maybe it was the owners meetings, or whatever the heck was going on down there and Tonio Brown was it art Rooney that took together are ruining the second. It's like ridiculous. That was silly. I thought he looked weak in that spot. I think he needed to step up as the owner publicly and be like, basically, like, screw you. And he ended up smiling taking a picture with them. And then ended up trade number third and fifth round pick, by the way, the Steelers traded Martavis Bryant to the raiders for a third round pick and had that workout. Well, it was a mess for them. But I'm just saying value wise. Tony O'Brien got traded for third and fifth yet did Martavis Bryant get suspended. Again for the rest of the rest of time. So I mean it ended up being bad. Maybe they felt bad towards the raiders. Like, hey, you know, we screwed you with Martavis Bryant. So we'll we'll send you this guy. I don't think it works that way for no. But no for real. Oh. And speaking of that will play one more time here so Tonio Brown. The most popular man in football right now recorded a message. Well, we had them record. A message via cameo. We ordered a cameo for Mike francesa. It's an olive branch type thing is you know, what this radio station sometimes we clash morning afternoon show..

"Opinion. Right here. I mean, we got this thing going on and on prescribed all that book. He's smoking as he's doing now. That's the he's he's using the old. That's medicine. That's exactly what he's doing. Yes. He says prescription drugs seem fine. But we'd not. We gotta deal with that policy. Everyone thinks it's about smoking. We none of us. About them much bigger than that. Here's one more one thing. Everything's band. But. That. Repeals plants over pills. That's the way he takes. I do think there is to be said about the properties of these opioids what happens there, and now we're free willing handing out bottles of pills to NFL. No, no, no, no, don't say that. It's not Free Willy don't. Yes. It used to be right. No longer. Everything is highly controlled now, I'm telling you when I played it was a different story. Yes. So we can't attach that that thought process to this today. So yeah, you break your ankle, you blow out your shoulder. You get knee surgery. Yeah. They're gonna give you pain pills. If you want. I mean, have I you know, I had I told you I had a niece cope right before thanksgiving. They offered me the Pels. I didn't take them. You know, that's up to me. I didn't take I want him. Now that was just a sculpt. So the pain was not nearly as significant as I'm sure some other surgeries or broken bones. Like what happened Alex Smith? You would think that Alex Smith is on some sort of pain medication initially after he breaks his leg. I get all that. But I I don't know, man. It's just like medicine and this and that I mean well now with CBD, and I don't know enough about this. But with CBD, you can get the same pain. But he's not getting right? I know, but, but my point is that for those that are very passionate about the plants over pills movement out there, you can get can't you get CBD pretty easily and still be able to use that without get guy. That's not what he's doing. I know I know that I forget about him for a second. I'm just asking that question that I think that if you want to not use opioids in UCD oil, you can do that not fail thing, and the NFL may may loosen up on these things as they move forward. This is something that was being discussed right now at the NFL PA because I think first of all, you know, when you're getting tested for pot. You know, they tell you when you're getting tested if you haven't fail the test yet. But you got to be more on the ballot, right? Exactly. Well, one hundred percent because it's either going to happen at the combine that you can get put into the substance abuse program or it's right before training camp. It's a date that you know. And you know, they're they're telling you, we're testing you just one one time. And if you and if you fail it, you got a problem, and then you start getting randomly tested after that. Once you go into the substance if you play it, right? And you're someone who really loves smoking weed you stopped for that period of time you pass that test. Once that test is over the street drug test. You don't get tested again for it. If you're not in the substance abuse program you could smoke weed every day every hour for the entire season. If you want to do and get away with it. And that's the way the lease get around it all we test for it. They can say that they don't say that they test for it every day. They don't test for it. Every weekday test for once. Unless of course, you get caught. And then you get now. And then and then you get caught now 'cause you're a moron exactly guys like Martavis Bryant, I could never figure out like you could smoke all the we want to stop for like a month before you get tested. Jeez. NHL islanders had a big game needed to win. And they would get it done wins. It cleanly LARs L the pelicans right point. Skates down the wall away from the AARP fraud tipped on bills.

He's playing a lot this year, but playing really well. W hunt. You know, they will Gerard Galant. All right. So we went back to back in our number two could change your pace for you. We'll talk some football. We talk some hockey. And now we're open in our three we change again. We'll talk some boxing with Mikey Garcia. I also want to go back to jail. See said she said when asked a question if you're a team in need of a wide receiver right now. Maybe you're Oakland. Maybe your San Francisco knowing who's on the board would you draft a wide receiver. Or would you try to make a deal for Antonio Brown or owed L Beckham? And she said oh Brown Brown for a second. Despite what's gone on since the end of the season. You know, what you can get from this guy one hundred receptions, fourteen hundred yards twelve touchdowns and he can pencil. This jail jail. C is the most credible guy in the business. I would just raise this question. You know, what you're going to get from Antonio Brown. Antonio Brown's worst season in terms of productivity is better than almost anybody else's best season. But what you also get Antonio Brown. Right now is all this baggage. And you know, he's gonna while long-term deal. So do make that deal or not. But then again, Jon Gruden went as hard as he did. And had no issue with Martavis Bryant. Is there any reasonably that? He wouldn't want Antonio Brown. Mr. big chest. What I'm still trying to figure out is exactly what happened with Mr. big chest. And pittsburgh. Why was it so bad in Pittsburgh? When you look at everything he add, right? They're not perfect, and I'm sure being implying with Ben Rothlisberger could be a pain in the acid times. But was it really that bad? Did he had a burn up every bridge and set his own reputation on fire on the way out? Get into that. When we come back. This Email or I should say tweet is from at Brian C sixty the only thing LeBron needs to accomplish is getting the Space Jam to script over to you wore the x are for TI getting cameo as.

"I mean, if you're in Tonio Brown, do you wanna go to the Washington Redskins Colt? Mccoy's you're starting quarterback right now. How much does that excite you? You wanna go out to the raiders? I mean, you know, look you want you want to have another losing season. You've never had one before. So it's not even another. I mean think about that. So that's that's the thing. So you just, you know, listen, every time Tonio Brown opens his mouth, it hurts his trade stock. But does it hurt Antonio Brown? As far as the football player stock goes, I I don't necessarily think it does. I think he's trying to get his way out of Pittsburgh in scorching as much as he can. So that the Steelers, you know, if they wanna take part deal. Listen, he burns them on the way out or if the Steelers just say, you know, what we're just tired of this and you cut him, and that's Tonio Brown's endgame here. Well, he's definitely doing enough to try to fuel that to try to get his way out the door. But again the Steelers very stubborn team. I could see this one lesson for awhile pitch for doesn't get the type of offer that they want. I see this possibly going into the draft. Honestly, we were last year they trade it Martavis Bryant. I don't wanna drop actually see that happen as well with the Steelers. But last question for you, Alex before I let you go. I know you're down in Florida as well. So Nick foles to the Jaguars. I know it's not for sure yet until March thirteenth. But what does that do for Jacksonville to have Johnny flip offense coordinator reunited, you know, with Nick foles, it gives them a shot to get back to where they were in two thousand seventeen and that's an AFC title game. And I'm not exaggerating here. I mean, look the Jags have several things break right form the guy to avoid another season of injuries the way that it hit them in in twenty eighteen they've gotta find some more juice at the wide receiver position. Marquand marquees Lee coming back. We'll be a big boost not only good receiver. He's also a really good blocker. They gotta find something tight end as well. And you gotta make the defense, you know, start to get those impact type plays again. They're very good defense last year. They're just not great. They weren't doing the types of things, you know, fighting the quarterback that they had in the past. And you saw a little bit of a dip from from Jalen Ramsey, for example, you know, in that regard. So but at the talent is still there on defense. And I think Nick foles being that that galvanizing guy in the locker room someone that has been there and done that as one Super Bowl starting quarterback. And the thanks to show to I'm sure you know, looked up that he can lead his own team. So the promised land so to speak and working with John Philip was quarterbacks coach from the eagles in an offense that he's gonna know inside and out having Leonard for an Aetna backfield behind him, and hopefully a happy Leonard fournette, hopefully as thin or at least spelt Leonard for net behind him in the backfield working with his new running backs. Coach Terry rediscovered there's a lot to like about the Jacksonville Jaguars if the room to get this Nick foles deal done. Don't forget to.

"The wing the one that he tweeted out yesterday as black and white now. Colbert on the meeting twenty minutes what he said about eight twenty Brown to the meeting. We love he's a player. We thank you for what you did for the last nine years. We're disappointed. We didn't get you a Super Bowl and think your hall of fame candidate and disappointed that didn't happen with us. But we're open shop around the league to see what's available said there's been no trade talks yet for Brown. But that quote will probably pick up as this announcement becomes more official on our end added. We're not gonna move a significant player for less than significant compensation and quote first-round pick. Somebody's gonna do from Ed bouchette. Somebody's gonna fork over that one. I don't know. I don't know who's gonna do that. And could be San Francisco sitting there. It's not worth suck. He's not worth second overall selection. Chris that's shown. No, no, no. But a team that has a token about one is we're talking about San Francisco being the spot 'cause they really could use him. Do they places that he plays the Julio Jones role in the Shanahan offense? If you wanna say that he's worth a one in the twenties here the teams in the twenties. Pittsburgh, okay, Seahawks. That is not happening. Although maybe it could who knows. Number twenty two overall ravens. What do you think? Texans. Don't need them bears. Now, you're talking eagles. Now, you're talking cross state. Colts to twenty six Cowboys. Don't they're not getting them chargers. No white chiefs. No, thanks saints thirtieth. But they traded that to the Green Bay Packers. They don't have it pack out of the water right there. Boom done. Break. The knob off. That's got you. Gotta make got entertain gotta think about it. The entertain it. All the compensation. I'm hearing is fourth round pick. That's what I'm here that they'd be lucky to get what the raiders coughed up for Martavis Bryant a third again. He's thirty one years old. I'm telling you, man, he's thirty one and you always matter anymore. Tom Brady shattered that age glass. There's more baggage calming with this guy than anybody else that you could think of who hasn't hit a woman. Okay. We're you know, what I mean? One hundred and four thirteen hundred fifteen I get it. He led the league touchdowns last year. And the indication as to this is really a foot not only because Colbert said it's not becomes more official on our enemy. What's more fish than him saying that Israel? As an Tony Brown tweeted meeting. He has nine it's been radio silent Hasni lay low low, Mr. big just on Twitter nothing on low. Mr. big chest. Mr. big, Janice. See we you're not gonna you're not coughing up. But one for him, you just not gonna. I don't think a one again one one was sorry. Call for Pittsburgh twenty years or round pick. They're going to laugh and hang up the phone. No, they're not they're going to trade him. They're not gonna borough fourth round pick. No way. Do you really believe with everything that's gone on?

"I just I just wanted to Tonio Bronx think he's a better football player me too. Yeah. Yeah. I mean because they're both going to do stuff. They're both going to be in the news. They're both going to seek attention, whatever. I don't care as long as you're as long as you're producing. I don't care if you're writing a helicopter, you've got ten thousand dollars or whatever it might be. I don't care Antonio Brown. I think is a better football player than del Beckham junior. Odell Beckham is nice, but he's not. Beckham is legit. There's no question about it. But it's hard for me to to pick him over a be right now. Just because the skill set that A B brings to the table. I think is just more electrifying. The me more of a deadly threat to me in deal. Not that does not at threat. I just think that you know, it's like. Do you want a seven forty seven to do you want a regular gosh Trine, what do you want? They both go get you to the same place. But one might get you there faster. You can put more people on it. That's kind of how I look at it ever much deeper appreciation for my Tomlin and the job that he's been a great point. Because if you think about the videos from Levy on bell and the videos Montoya Davis, and you got to depend upon ground. David state in New Orleans. Not davis. Don't talk about. Maybe I'm Bill you those dudes and your locker room, and you got depend on them. And Ben Rothlisberger and being. Yeah. He hasn't jumped any mix tapes yet. But no, but he's a became pay. He's he's a drama Queen because every other days I go on. Drama Queen is any major drama. He's from this is my last season last season. Can do this shoulder hurt some runoff to field and come back in hold on not gonna win without me? Let me put it. But he is. And I think at the end of the day, Mike Tomlin, you know, he'll be better for not having that in his locker room of. Fortunately, Big Ben is there, and he's probably not gonna go anywhere because he's a quarterback in those guys. Don't come. You know that often with especially when you are productive question. Are you can you honestly say that they're going to be a better team without Antonio Brown? No, no. They're not going to be a better. Okay. Let me scratch not necessarily a better team. But you don't have to deal with the answers of questions every single day about why this why that unless somebody else emerges all of a sudden in creates those think about this stuff. What minute he had Martavis Bryant lady pill. Perfect AP and people talking about he should have been fired Terry Bradshaw, all dismissing when you. Ties Americal there's some whispers that the Lakers are concerned with LeBron unguaranteed find out what with that next. Happy birthday. Happy birthday, smokey Ravis. Seventy nine years old see this.

Tonio Brown just tweeted a few minutes ago, and he posted a picture of himself with Mr. Rooney, and it says had a great meeting with Mr. Rooney today, we discuss a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues. Exclamation point. We both agreed that it's time to move on. But I have all in gratitude towards the Rooney family and the Steelers organization hashtag called God. Hashtag booming.

"When it comes to gain planning in game preparation in in game adjustments. These are all things that Bill Belichick seems to thrive on Bill Bella checks teams. Typically are extremely prepared. Bill checks teams are usually very quick to adjust on the fly in really make the opposition have to sweat. These are not characteristics of Mike Tomlin led Pittsburgh Steelers team again, not bringing commentary into this NOP bring opinion these are backs. If you disagree with these facts, you don't watch the Steelers and jolt watch the patriots ever, you don't watch football. Because these are this is reality. So in other words, if the status quo remains the same Brady still there Ben's still there Bella check and Tomlin are in their in their sidecars alongside those quarterbacks. Who are we who am I to suggest that anything is going to be different? Why would suddenly the Steelers who could be without interview round who are likely to be without leave on bell who don't have Martavis Bryant anymore. No one does. In fact. How is supposed to say that this team? They could be stripped of so much talent is going to be able to best the patriots who seem to win with no name players. Yes. They have rob gronkowski. Julia nettleton has become a player who in the heck new of Chris HOGAN before two or three years ago. Nobody did he was the lacrosse player at Penn State. So what I'm saying is that? If there's going to be an opportunity for number seven. Got gotta lean towards the patriots in hate saying that because the if you'd have asked me to the last three years, I'd say, there's no doubt. It's the Steelers because they have they'll they have Brown. They have been if got offense of line. They seem like they were trending in the right direction for the first time in a long time. I don't feel like they're Nestle. Trending. And that's a wreck Shen. I'm not saying they're turning downward in in what Mike Tomlin would say. He always is. I think he's arrows pointing up about a player's performance. I would say the right now in the nineteen and the Steelers have flatlined in that could change quickly depending on the outcome of this whole Antonio Brown saga. So in the ultimate question of will the patriots get number seven before the Steelers do and they would need to do that. I just keep thinking my goodness. This team has been the Super Bowl the last three years they play in the worst divisions in the NFL. The jets aren't going to be much better next year. The bills aren't going to be much better next year in the dolphins of the dolphins. And so I'm looking at these seems and thinking, okay. So there's potential five of six at least probably the worst winds right there. The patriots are gonna win their division. They're gonna least host a home game. They're probably going to be in the running for the number one seed to get a first job by they're going to set themselves up for success. Meanwhile, the Steelers will be at a tough division because now you have Lamar Jackson Cleveland Browns or better the Bengals. Although coming off a rough season are still going to be a competitive team with players like AJ green and Joe mixing and Andy Dalton the defense with Gene-o Atkins and Carlos Dunlap and all those players. They're they're going to be competitive. Gimme winds. And we all know what the Steelers do they play crappy teams they might win. But it's on. It's pretty it's never. They are right. We can we can rest and players in the fourth quarter because he took care of business and hack. You would have thought they would at least Oakland this year. I guess what?.

"Airport. Growing rapidly plans for more growth, you know, what right now, you know, just from a business perspective right now. I'm in the I'm in the stabilize face, you know, being being, you know, just about two years into the bigger located only two months into this one the north west one, you know, now about stabilizing, and then also creating more structure, and when you grow I'm sure, you know, for sure when you the more you grow the more, you realize how important structure is. And then you also realize how much of it. You didn't have. Yeah. Early stage. Based on the power of you. Business you control everything you've got your fingerprints on it and everything, but then you start to grow you realize like gets more systems more systems. I can't micromanage every move in part got to bring in some staffs and different people. So so, yeah, we're definitely in that stage right now, I'm just been in majority of the time structuring systems to talk to me about phase one training of young athletes. There's more to it than that. Yeah. For sure for sure I mean, we we provide. So for example, our location on blue diamond you walk in and we have the indoor turf. Of course, all of our weight training area. We have our half basketball court. So we're doing a lot with sports. But then also we have physical therapy in there. So we actually have know full service medical physical therapy, knee, injuries rehab needed anything like that. Which is also great. Because now if you're getting treatment, you also communicate with the personal trainer performance trainer. We also have cryotherapy in there. So we offer full service cryotherapy we also have meal prep. I mean, it's the nutrition. So it's a full service facility. So even our priority is athletes. We we also have a lot of adults that like the train like athletes, and that's kind of one of our tagline is training, like an athlete. So we have our regular does that he might be like us. We we were good once upon a time. I always. But yes, we offer a lot of different services. So we have a lot of dotes that that, you know, enjoy something difference pushing sleds up and down the turf battle robes, you know, during the fun stuff and walking out Finland. Hey that was tough. It was challenging, but I had a great workout. And I feel good feels a little bit different like walking on the treadmill. I mean, how many how many sets of toil. Can you do? I mean, it really Jane you do that. That's a great point radiate trading. I an athlete where people can go in there and actually put push themselves. Is it the same at all? Facilities. They've got the personal group, fitness or personal three levels. So we have large route which are bigger class. We have small group which is the max of four people, and then of course, private one on one. And and it is the same. I it's the environment is really what we've created. I mean just up to just a couple of weeks ago, we got grumble in there who's our local NFL player Brandon marshalls in their Martavis Bryant in their Corey tumors in the NFL guys, but they're in the same facility as regular dotes eight year old kids, I mean, it's just the environment that just drives on energy and the energy. All these people in they're pushing themselves. NFL parallel. You don't just lay it cool. I'll take it. You know, they're gonna put for more plates on it. But. Are you? You're you're seeing more and more. I guys trade here in the off season. Sounds like that could be due in part to the fact that you've provided a facility where they can try. Yeah. You know, I think that's a big part. I think we're definitely playing a role in that. And I think for us it came down to two things number one athletes like Brandon marshal Vier in Corey, for example. These are Las Vegas kids. You know, they went to high school here Bishop Gorman Cimarron thing Rancho for Corey. So and they were part of phase one even back then so even they've been a part of the growth and now they're in NFL. So of course, they're coming back. So now, they got teammates. Hey, your baguettes. I'm coming to see you because everyone wants to come back. And if they got excuse like, hey, we can try that based on you know. So I think I think we're definitely playing a role in in making Vegas. One of those locations were athletes and high level people like that can come in and say, hey, we can get some good quality workouts in can sweater. Before. When they come in and always say, well, let me guess you want to get about four workout. Right. I said why you'll pay for.

"You've kind of taken on this enemy role. I wanna give you a chance to explain yourself. What's sort off with the office burger thing. What's the reasoning behind that? If you think about it this way Steelers have not made the Super Bowl and quite some time since two thousand ten police they've had some of the best offenses talent that the NFL has seen in years. You throw in a BU throwing fail. You throw in ju ju you throw in fans McDonnell ally. Roger you throw in all these guys Martavis Bryant you throw in all these guys, and they couldn't get it done. Now, you look at the Pittsburgh Steelers two thousand nineteen you may have no AB. You're probably gonna have no bail. You have no Bryant you're left with James Washington. Juju a Ryan Switzer as your wide receivers with James Connor and Samuel's you go from. From the from the pit house to the outhouse so to speak in terms of talent. Juju is solid jujubes. No number one. Yes. Said ju was not a number one. Why receivers stop it? You'll see RAF was burgers going win the championship with that cast of characters if he couldn't do it with the other cast of characters with that being said don't do the restructure save that money. Let's start moving for we've rebuilding this team rebuilding. This defense is starting this from scratch because pink Ben Rothlisberger back with these guys that I just mentioned it's rented repeat, and we'll be watching that team up north in Foxborough. Finally, catch the Pittsburgh Steelers and get six championships. Okay. We'll let me let me say something here. Okay. You talked about leasing guys like and Brown, which let's assume is going to happen. But I want you to think back for me to two thousand and five. And it's tougher you, and I know the your memory's not your strong suit being back to that Super Bowl forty team. Can you name me some of the wide receivers on the team? Go. Twat random l ward. Yes, What's the guy's name? Cedrick wilson. Yes. Those are the primary three Nate Washington was also on that day, Washington. But now. I know how old on I'm not talking about the defense. They ran the ball more because. No, none of those wide receivers were elite. I love Hines ward. We'll say I love him till the day. I'd die. He was not in a lead game changing wide receiver. He was a game changing blocker, and he had great hands and played his role to a T in. He should be in the hall of fame my opinion, eventually, but he was not an elite wide receiver case. Now, let's fast forward to two thousand and nine. Can you name me some of those receivers on that team? Two thousand nine let me go back as Washington was still highs war was still still there. Yes, you're right. Nate Washington was still on the team here. Correct. Let's see who else. Play wide receiver winning touchdown catch said soil homes if they get a little bit. Burger should've been MVP of that game. I will for that. And you're and you had he's Miller. Those guys. So again, Santillan home was was more dynamic than the previous wide. Receivers crew that we talked about I guess what I'm trying to say is that I think sometimes because they had so much talent in the passing game. That throwing the ball seem so attractive all the time. In my opinion. This might be a blessing in disguise in terms of the balance that you speak about that is that is peak about ad nauseam on the show because they'll have to lean on the run more, and that's not going to be a bad thing. Because let's say if you've juju and you have James Washington, and maybe you get a free agent wide receiver refined one of the draft or both. And you can piece together some players that can be a deep threat that can still control. You know, the middle of the field was shoe does so well, but he can run the football. I think that can be an arrest for success. But like you said the defense on the other side was so..

"And I I have no doubt in my mind that in Tonio Browner someone who or even in the whole Steelers situation is bad. And that not everything that is happening. There is being reported that happens in different places happens in every NFL locker in their stuff. You hear about that doesn't necessarily make it because it's just not either you can't start reliably enough or it's not just sort of phase because you get focusing other stuff. And I think this were happening in week six or seven I think it would just fade because well tweak tenure of other stuff to focus on. And you're just busy. It's sort of like the Martavis Bryant stuff last year was a big story. And then of broke out, and it was like, oh, who cares? We have other stuff to really focus at this point. But the problem for me is this if this situation was different if the scenario is different. I would believe this would be aggressive about making a move. If it weren't for the fact that. They have a thirty seven year old quarterback who is in the last days of his who honestly was pretty bad over the last few weeks of the year in terms of missing open receivers, including Tonio Brown. I sit here and say, okay. Well, they have the space. They have the time. They don't have to focus on right now. They can make a move, and maybe they still I'm very skeptical of the idea it just. All the other reporting. I've seen about the cap and situation that is honestly either misleading or straight up and accurate. The reality is this. The Steelers can pay Tonio Brown. Twenty two point two million dollars on their cap to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers in two thousand nineteen or whether they started across twenty nineteen and twenty twenty or twenty nineteen they're going to pay twenty one point one million dollars of their cap room to have him play for somebody else. So Steelers that twenty one point one million dollars say sunk cost difference of one point one million dollars to have Antonio Brown. Play for you to deal with whatever nuisance. He's going to be versus having him play for somebody else. I can't imagine outside of him literally beating up his teammates. And even then stays with his teammates still play for the Panthers was just fine. I can't imagine a scenario where it makes sense for the Steelers, even given if he's he's hurting their culture for them to make that make sense and trade and twenty Brown away at the end of burgers career. Let me ask you this. All things considered. If let's say there is no drama, or you know, that we didn't know about the stuff going on. Or what if the Steelers running steers and you were forced between trading bedr- office burger or.

"But he's there there's nothing you can do about Big Ben he is a made man if you want to set any type of precedent for accountability for the next time, you have a guy like Martavis Bryant who's career could go one way or another the next time. You have a guy like Levi on bell, forget the hold out who fails one drug test, and you might need to realize a man you fail. Another one. We your time of the team could be done. We don't know how do Jews career what direction it's going to take. You have to it. Some point say we are going to take. Stand. And I'm never the take a stand guy. But I gotta know you're gonna show up for work, and you you're right. He is shown up for game days, but he didn't show. He wasn't available in week seventeen because of the decisions he made leading up to it. And I just wonder what the narrative would've been if Mitch mccranie. Their rookie addition kicker Boswell got hurt. If he missed his field goals are Matt macrame, pardon me. If he missed his field goals and Baker Mayfield and finish off that drive that if the if the ravens have lost and the Steelers still missed out in the playoffs because they couldn't crack ten points in a must win game against the Bengals because AP's not there to Jews getting double team dole game instead of a be getting double team and the often to shut down because of it Nikki mentioned earlier that there's two reasons why one of them was the it. It's a significant cap it if they try to get rid of it. So it's twenty two million if he's on the team next year, and it's twenty one million if he's not so I understand the argument of okay? So it's only one extra thing. For the first one, but you would get I'm not saying they cut him. We live in a world where a Maury Cooper got to got a first round pick. Yes. And we live in a world where Khalil Mack knowing that they were going to have to set pay a record setting contract. Got you two first round picks. So what does in Tony Brown? Get you. If the team that's trading for him hasn't for the next three years for twelve million a year. I think it's more than a I I don't know if it's too I but I think there's a team in Green Bay. That's got a couple first round picks. Right. That I think would be interested in a first third friend Tonio Brown. So you don't cut him. But I would that's why I would test the waters here. I would see can I get enough value production back to make it worthwhile. Trading away who I agree with you is the best receiver in the NFL. Well, that's the balance of it. Right. Because the GM for the Green Bay Packers. He recognized his team wasn't good enough to compete for championships. So he did make some moves in and be able to acquire some draft capital. When you're talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then wealth burgers older than Aaron Rodgers. And Ben Rothlisberger only has one more year under contract they signed Rogers to a four year contract extension. So you're gonna have him for four more seasons after twenty teen. So it made sense for them to push the reset button this season. I don't know if the Steelers can afford to do that. Now as far as your point about Mike Tomlin and preserving the integrity of his messaging to the rest of the locker room. I'm just gonna go back to something. Jimmy Johnson said a long time ago, I'll treat all my players fairly, but I won't treat all my players equally and the guys in the locker room understand that they know that having eighty four one field gives them a better chance to win and not having it. But here's the thing. I could even go down that bridge with you. If Tomlin had played them on Sunday because it is not like AB didn't show up to the stadiums. But what's the rumor though, Nick they didn't play because AB was upset at Ben Rothlisberger. And they had a blow up during the course of the week..

"martavis bryant" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"So you as well in the entire herd family everybody out there. Happy new. All right. Let's start with Antonio Brown. I said to start my show you used to need based dealers in major league baseball Houston, eat centers in the NBA and you used to sometimes be beholden to star wide receivers. I look around right now, the diva wide receiver to me is much more disposable than it's ever been the rules help receivers right out of college of the pros. What do you do if you're Pittsburgh with AB? You and I are typically very different on this. I will tolerate a lot more than you will tolerate especially if you're a star player 'Antonio to me has crossed the Rubicon here. And I a lot of this is not on just on him. I think it you. You talked about stemming with my Tomlin, I think it stems with the enabling of Ben Rothlisberger and his bad behaviour on and off the field that for fifteen years of the Steelers have still never punished him and always put their arms around him. Whether it's throwing teammates onto the bus being accused of horrifying things off the field or just throwing red zone interceptions. But that is the culture they have their and now within Tonio we're to a point where in a playoff week the most important week of the year. He goes AWOL if that's not tradeable, then nothing is tradable. I don't think it's shocking that the Steelers have had a trend of Martavis Bryant fails. Drug test doesn't learn can't keep failing drug tests. And now as failed tests out of the league Levy on bell failed multiple drug tests. You've seen guys guys in that locker room not be taught. There is a line and in Tonio, I don't care about the celebration penalties. I don't care about throwing the cooler. I don't care about throwing the football. Big ben. He probably deserved that football thrown at him. But you gotta show for work the next day. And so if I'm the Steelers he's my the same cap hit on or off the team next year. So I'm asking myself is my team better moving forward with zero cap dollars for Antonio Brown twenty twenty and moving forward, plus probably a first and third round BIC or in Tonio Brown his contract, and the enabling that goes along with it. I'm absolutely shopping him this summer. All right. Let's shift to this. You're in New York, Mike McCarthy's available. I know he doesn't have. Cheekbones, and he's not letting cool and all that stuff. But I know this everybody bum rushed Andy Reid out of Philadelphia. He's the number one seed old sixty year old Andy Reid an old ballot. Check and old John Harbaugh. I'm reading and I got nothing against cliff Kingsbury. But you know, I saw him in the big twelve and he's interviewing for the jets job. And I'm like, whoa. It doesn't make sense to me. What is your land for you? I mean, I do have something to give against cliff Kingsbury how about thirty five and forty at tech that's enough to be against, and that's his record cliff Kingsbury going from fired at your own Ahmad, or where you're a beloved legend to NFL head coach would be a an instance of failing upwards the likes of which I never seen like failed reality star to never mind, not the point. But I just I can't imagine a circumstance where this makes sense. I you joke about the cheekbones. I mean, this in -serily if cliff Kingsbury weren't so handsome would he be a candidate if cliff Kingsbury didn't look like literally Sean McVeigh would he be a candidate? And I would caution anyone that was trying to find the next McVeigh or the next Matt Nagy what didn't make Nate McNair McVay in Nagy have McVay win. In and hired someone to take care of the defense who's fifty years older than him Nagee has Vic Fangio whose thirty years older one. Then in to run the defense. If you bring in guy like cliff Kingsbury does he have a Wade Phillips Vic Fangio a guy would make a ton of sense for that job as Todd Bowles. But I don't think he's gonna stick around in New York to be the coordinator for his nephew. So I just I don't understand the cliff Kingsbury thing McCarthy would be fine McCarthy's replacement level coats. That's not an indictment that is who he is cliff. Kingsbury would be bananas. All right. Let's move to this..
