In the Justin Turner third baseman for the Dodgers, who was pulled in the eighth inning. It has come to light. He was pulled because of a positive cove in 19 test. I know right? Crazy. So all kinds of questions terms of when did this test result? Come in. When were the Dodgers notified? How did this end up happening to where he's out there playing in the game? And what would have happened Had we known before the game and what would have happened if there was a game seven and Would we have all handled it the way we did if this were a regular season game Or would everybody have just stopped the game right then and gone home?

"Area you can get pieces prisoners on your what have you delivered for take out so go and do that in the cheese good pizza good people good up all the way around Matt barrows of the athletic talking Niners who joined us at the bottom of the hour guys because there is no sports and I know I've been satisfied and my sports urges that sounded weird I've been satisfied watching old old James check out this we were talking about the beginning of the show game one of the eighty eight World Series to Kirk Gibson game and then I saw over the weekend SO game six of eighty six LCS Astros Mets and which was a great series and they also should game five rod right before game the day before game six they should game five yeah there was nothing great about that that was that was a tremendous series between two because people forget you heads yet Mike Scott she just absolutely full throttle whatever Mike Scott we have to win Mike Scott was doing it and doing it well right she so so then you got you got that and then you had the Astros who have a great core there that and that was probably the best team that they had and the maps of course were were an epic hundred plus win team with incredible pitching and power and personality and Billy Hatcher off the foul pole and in there just there's a someone that was that that was a terrific series yeah could've been better I was in the back today wonder what X. when I was a fourteen year old wondering why does the sports god hate me me specifically why why why but no it was it was a fantastic series and yeah I was just there there were a bunch of small favors in there and there's so much ahead remember that guy but it was fun to watch and and it it's I find it to be just the way the game is presented and I like the way it's presented Allison I like the the strike zone and you know superimposed I like the the score book I like I did none of that stuff the new stuff the information bothers me at all but there is something very soothing and comforting watching old old games where you don't have all of that information on the screen it is just kind of like I remember used to be this way but I bring it up just to mention that ESPN they're airing classic Monday Night Football game starting tonight over the next five weeks so every Monday there's going to be a new a new classic games and are going to take it all the way back to two thousand and five so tonight we get that game for a couple years ago Chargers chiefs what was it like fifty four fifty one or something crazy along those lines but that bad boy was it was like watching you know watching a real life Madden game so you get that tonight Atlanta New Orleans two thousand six I believe that that that is the first game back after Katrina Minnesota Green Bay nine that is pressed barbs or return to Green Bay as a Viking Indianapolis New England so you get the the manning Brady showdown those are always fun and in Dallas buffalo two thousand seven that's going to be the last of the five game so I'll double check it out you know Dallas but if one is three thousand seven is that is that thanksgiving was thanksgiving not throw money no games since Monday if it is buffalo head it was in buffalo for somebody that came a buffalo god knows how long buffalo had lied to and kelp which came back to beat on Tony Romo's quarterback at the top okay yeah I think the women one was billeted going for like on fourth and three days on twenty eight there's a whole lot forgot about that I think that I I bet you that was one because I think that was a Monday Monday night game so I don't know I I you know what I'm a lot more likely to watch an old one than I am but those I mean I might watch my might not but I'm more likely to watch some from the eighties seventies or the the early ninety I want something that I can't remember it but I know what happened but I just can't remember and take over I forget that I played for this guy I forget about that play these games I mean I remember most of the games and I remember and where they could trigger one gate that goes way back you know may watch that one and that's more or less watching for the intensity the building the Gleason blocked punt which way I mean the whole thing was just it was pretty incredible the rest of them I don't know I may I may not but if you give me like in nineteen eighty four playoff game all I definitely be locked into that one not I mean you know because that's when you're like you know I did at a high school or maybe just graduated college or like maybe I maybe just left college nine eighty four that was eighty eight but you know they did those ones I dig those are the ones like give me the old committee operator playoff games with Bo Jackson and there weren't a whole bunch of them of course the one they did have with the bank one I believe and that's I believe that's a playoff game right we heard is that hip I was in a regular season last regular season of the regular season game yeah I just give me those games one not that on a particular one see Bogut heard all over again but those the games I love old baseball games like I I dug a big like nineteen I watch the at the Bucky dent game against the I would have sold for that one we're all trying to keep track of the score now I mean I was in a red Sox or Yankee fan so but it was you know day baseball what's going on it is a different era now you get everything as much as you want you get back then you can hardly get anything maybe a local teams that was it so to get in the way you know get a a team from three thousand miles away was was a treat to be able to watch those games in day baseball game staying home from from school and watching the games are trying to find a TV ad school somewhere go to the video Roman watch some of the games if you can there be somebody to listen to it on a radio that that those were great and I and I did those bring back all the all the memory so yeah if it's old I'll probably check it out if not better call Saul that is so true Tom if you have a if you if you are missing school to watch it or like the needing fewer Dodger game where neither of you were you know Jack Clark takes need fewer yard and the the cardinals beat the Dodgers in the eighty five in L. C. S. I love watching that one and then the other one that is fun was Astros Dodgers game one sixty three eighty eight at Dodger Stadium the Dodgers lost that game to the Astros on the ads I think I guess I was eighty I guess right maybe eighty and then that led to another awesome Astros NLCS I mean think about it I know the Astros eventually got it done and they were in the World Series gets a white Sox but they were involved in both the eighty six and LCS lost the match in the eighty M. L. C. O. R. N. L. C. S. loss to the Phils was another epic all time series with you know there if you go back I didn't have an eight game six type situation but man that was a terrific series Astros Phillies with Pete rose yep no absolutely I know you know what I think would be awesome I don't know if you could do this or not but I was said to be cool to go back and look at old games and see how they would have or could have been impacted by a replay good three plays a beaver week we take replay for granted now we didn't have it back then I just wonder how many of those games would have had what a movie eight replay would have had a huge impact on it hello just think about when when was the was at the eighty five World Series eighty two that they can say is that if I mean you think that would have an impact on the on the game let alone the series deters home run against the Orioles are mayor reaches over and touches it who now I mean you're just there's so many games you go back and look at and say huh that's interesting I wonder how I wonder how replay would have handled that held the game I watch the first AFL championship with a damn fan ran on the field knocked the ball down up fan I still not losing that credible because I like watching that and gave a case out of school watch and laugh because I know a laugh every single time I see it that's why it will stay on my DVR as long as I have the DVR just so I could rewind it to that point infected queued up to that point just so I can see a fan runs on the field not the ball then leave and then they win is the best thing ever yeah and it would never happen it wouldn't happen with if there are people I know the show sponsored by redwood credit union bank from home or on the go with twenty four seven secure mobile and online banking from redwood credit union sign up today redwood credit union for all that you love we love talking about barrels of the athletic because he is dialed in when it comes to what the Niners will talk to him after a bit after happened satellites in orbit you're on the sports leader you're listening to a TKB Tolbert Krugerrand Brooks available now on to the end dot com through.

"Joe Staley Zach stream even said that even though they lost the saints lost that game witness said that he he would put the Super Bowl above that. But it's it's number two. So it wasn't number one on these guys with it was number two show. I mean, it's it's something that they wanted to share. But I think as time goes on you, you want to you wanna do that a little bit more to sort of memorialize it and the other part was that, you know, at that point. It was a fantastic game. But the forty nine. Played another game. The next week another bruiser against the New York Giants show a lot of the. You know, the celebrate celebration of that game got swept under the rug because there was another, you know, even bigger game coming down the pike. So people forgot about it and didn't really get its proper do. And that's another reason why I wanted to to write about it. Was there anything in the interview that surprised you what was the kind of the biggest surprise? Oh, I didn't know that whether it be about the game or or really about the the process all told I didn't know that just how gut wrenching the law was to the saints. It's the biggest loss in the history of that franchise. I had so many people tell me that. And I'm like, wait say this inches lose. You know, a horrible game in Minnesota. When when the guy just like, you know, try to tackle a phantom on the field there. And and the answer was. Yeah. Even even bigger than that. And it was because they. Had been so good. And so good at the end of the season. And we're just killing teams, you know, scoring forty points game on a roll, you know. Drew Brees at the top of his game Jimmy grim at the top of his game. Darren sproles untackled little Marcus Colston, every Henderson just a just a an array of weapons and everything just working out. Great and really some talented defensive players to. I mean, look at the safety Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins, I mean, the they they got rid of Jenkins largely because of that game. Everybody is so she aided Jenkins that game, and it sort of blind them to the fact that he this is this is really good safety. And it turned out that that he has been. I mean, consistent all pro and Pro Bowl since then show, I didn't realize just how devastating it was to that organization..

"I think and I've always wanted to know what if you said the Jonathan Bill Bill men y y van I mean, he's just such a controlled guy with a lot of fans frustrated by his his control, and and he doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve. He's sort of the anti jokes daily in that regard. So I really wanted to get him. But right when I setting it out, that's when he got this terrible injury. And then has not done any interview since then. So that was that was a big frustration for me and wanted to get Frank core. And he got injured at the end of the season and was incommunicado with the the dolphins from that point on. So there were a couple of guys that I really wanted to get that I didn't end up getting. But I ended up interviewing I think sixteen. Or seventeen different people. And some of them didn't didn't make it into the story. I mean, cutting it keeping it under six thousand words, which is a long story longest I've ever written is hard to do in. Some people did not make the the cut was there a nugget or a person that you really wanted to get in their thought it was a good to bit. But then when you know in the editing process it ended up on the cutting room floor. Yeah. There was it was sort of a FEMA. Storyline of the forty Niners thinking in the on the very first drive that they had knocked Jimmy grant Graham out of the game. I guess really has to be helped off the field. Can't stand up, you know, goes into Walker room. And they think okay grams done Pierre Thomas is done, and this is a real victory that we've gotten these two guys out of the game. And in this day and age there's no way in God's green earth. Jimmy Graham would would ever be allowed to come back on. He'll clearly had a concussion and the forty Niners defensive backs knew it, but lo and behold, he does come back. He comes back in the in the first half. I think he catches the touchdown in the second quarter. And it's one where he catches. It's one of those drew Brees throws it up high in the middle of the end zone. Graham goes up gets it sort of rolls on his back. The momentum's sort of carries him, no vicious hit or anything like that. But he he goes back onto its back. And he's he's still can cost to that point. He gets up wounds from that just sort of process of, you know, going down your but on your back and then on the back of your helmet, very routine play. He gets up a little bit woozy from that doesn't do his normal slam the ball over the the back of the the goal post which is his signature touchdown moon and back then stole legal back then and it wouldn't be for for very much longer. So he stayed in the game know, obviously has the game of his life. And and the play is life that sixty six yard touchdown. We've a minute thirty minute forty say he catches it. And then that puts the saints backup. I three was there anyone that was reluctant to share. You have to pry anything from people or where people pretty if you sit in in recounting. The story because I think about you know, the Super Bowl for me. I've I watch every game at least two or three times. And I don't know that I've seen that Super Bowl in its entirety ever. Since the first time. I watched it to be honest with you, and I don't know that I will for very long time. And it's been a while you so was it difficult for people to kind of get back in that head space, or did you feel like it had there been enough time for them to really have reflected on it and share? Yeah. That's one of the nice things about this type of stories that you know, time does pass, and they wanna share it. I mean, there was a recognition at that time that we have just played on both teams that we've just played very momentous game very important game. And for most of the guys I interviewed the best game of their career their favorite game..

"I mean, they're they're they're long, but they're a very fast read, and sorta kinda are able to get into the into the moment, and they're just a good way to talk about an event, you know, having all the people who participated in that event share their memories and making sure that, you know, one thought flows into the next one quote flows into the next, and I've always felt like, you know, this this game, which is so electric so memorable. And so kind of raw with emotion from from start to finish. And it also had a great back story in what happened in the preseason between those two include that too because I had forgotten about the preseason game. And when you started the story with a forty Niners having. Oh, that's right. Greg Williams is a dick like, yeah. I remember at the time thinking, it was a Greg Williams thing. And of course, bountygate happened, and I put that in that area. And then to find out that, oh, you know, what it was actually Sean Payton that that's okay, Jim Harbaugh doesn't wanna take my call and find Greg Williams, do whatever you want. And that was hit the quarterback. It was it was an interesting little reminder. Well, yeah, I mean, and that that tells you everything you need to know about how Jim Harbaugh was perceived entering league. I mean, they knew that he was going to be kind of prickly. And you know, they're very Jim horrible like. Personality type, but they wanted to they wanted to kind of, you know, rub his nose in it. You know, say this isn't San Diego anymore. This is in the Pac twelve this is the NFL. This is how we do things. And and they did I mean they really beat up on that team during that game. So yeah. And they did not think that you know, forty Niners team that had been eight the year before very good new coach lockout ear. There's no way that we're going to you know, pay the piper on this later in the season. And lo and behold, that's exactly what happened now. How long did it take to interview everyone because I mean, it's sprawling? I'm sure you went back into the the old phone contacts at Snyder Jim Harbaugh triplet. You know, you've got even a good old goody Goodwin. Great center for the forty Niners for a few years Streep. I mean, it you interviewed a lot of people holiday take to to get all those interviews completed a long time. I mean, I started this. I knew that I want I suspected that the saints. We're going to be in the play offs. And I thought to myself wouldn't it be great to run at the same weekend that divisional playoff weekend as as that game. So I started in mid-november Joe Staley was the first interview and I sat down with him. He was the only sit down interview. And you know, his was if not the best interview one of the top two. So I mean. I included maybe one twenty fifth of all the interviews that I did. But his was the best. It was like a half hour. He was profane and descriptive. As he always is. So he was really good. So once once that was done, I knew that was going to be good because you know, that that was already the basis already sort of was able to kind of weave together the outline of it through what he told me. And so it was just a matter of getting as many as I could. And you know, I I had, you know, Alex Smith all all, you know, ready to do. This is my big regret of the story. I wanted Alex Smith was one of the must have guy. Yeah. He's he's one. You know, when I went, and I was like, okay. I gotta get Joe Staley gotta get Dante Witter, and I've gotta get gotta get Vernon Davis. And I've gotta get Alex Smith Alex Smith at the end of right after the Vernon Davis touchdown at the end. There's only nine seconds left. He does something. I've. Never seen him do which is go up to an opponent, and basically talks MAC, and he did it to Jonathan Vilma..

"In the passing game at least early on as the Steelers. If he wasn't happy. There is you're going to be happy with us. Yeah. It is interesting. I think that I think if there is a locker room that could not hold him. Right. But I think if you've got a good culture, and I think the Niners do you're able to take more of a risk on someone like Antonio Brown. But man, I think you're right that draft capital. The first two picks those are your price picks. So if you're going to part with draft capital, it's going to be a third round pick and maybe a future pick. And that's I think that's probably if a deal gets done what what it might take in order to get done. I think that they feel like they can get to defensive starters with those picks. Now, whether that's, you know, a Sam outside linebacker, and in Leo or Leo in a free safety or what I don't know. But that's that's how I think that they're thinking heading Schrafft's, well, which a little bit. And I wanted to talk about something else that was not news related, but it was about a story that you wrote in the Atlantic, and it was the oral history of the what I affectionately call the latest forty Niners. Super Bowl, and that was the divisional game against New Orleans Saints and first of all if you're listening to the show, and you have not read that story in athletic, go by subscription athletic and read that story right now because it's honestly one of the most it's one of the best thing I've read on the athletes, and it's probably one of the better stories that I've read on the Niners just full stop. And so I wanted to have you on a chat a bit about it talk to me about the process and figure out if there's anything that maybe you didn't get to put in the story that that you can share with the listeners, but first off what what prompted the story what kind of gave you the idea to think, you know, what it's time to go back and review that. Well, I read oral histories that other writers have done, and I like them. I mean, I I like how they may flow..

"If we go back to what we learned earlier with Thomas Gushin, you know, your position coach does influence how much you play and whether or not you play, and I think quarterbacks a little bit different because obviously Shanahan has a very very active hand in that. But I wonder if scan Carello is indeed Mullins advocate if Shanahan doesn't end up. You know, kind of tied goes to the guy drafted type of thing and ends up impacting what Mullins what comes of the competition next year. Yeah. And we definitely a advocate. He's the guy that kind of addenda fide hinder in two thousand seventeen trap process, and then championed the forty Niners signing him after the craft. They even brought him in on an official thirty visit which you usually don't do for guy that you have. No, you know in England of crafting, but they wanted to make sure that Omaha. Right. That was that was that was his only visit Joe they had him on the hook at that point. He wasn't going to go anywhere else. After the traffic. I don't think that it's going to happen. And you know, I it could. I mean, my my guess is that Denver wants to go big at that position a much more experienced quarterback like Nick foles or or something like that. Or a first rounder again show. You know, the those guys that the forty Niners deal are are kind of looked on as as backups good backups in Molins case. But my my guess is that that wouldn't happen at at least not this year on his leave a team around the league. And I think that there's going to be a competition when of two things is going to happen. One of those quarterbacks is gonna get cut or they're all going to remain on the team. They'll remain on the team the shoes mood. Maybe you try to initiate some kind of late round trade talk. But if you think that one of them could get cut just. Until they do and then put away on them can take long for those guys to pick up the Denver offense. They already know it. That's exactly right. So last question kind of in the news recap. Let's talk about Antonio Brown. Of course, lots of things have been coming out about him really wanting to be an Niner. And you know, despite what many fans thing just because Jerry Rice says it doesn't mean it's going to happen. The key really is in the asking price. Do you think based on what you're hearing from the team that the team is willing to part with some important draft capital in order to bring someone like Tonio Brown into the building. Yes. Now, what that draft capital is. I don't know. You're the GM give me what what you would accept what you would give up what you would part with for someone like that. I wouldn't part with either of my first two picks. I mean, I feel like the the forty Niners have been designing their roster for this draft. I mean they've stayed away from edge rushers because they knew that this might be a good draft. And it is so you know, I feel like that. That's definitely going to go. They're gonna go use their number two overall pick on that desertion. And then they've got you know, one of the top picks and in the second round, they can parlay that into more picks, which is what I think that they'd like to do with that. Would you use that pick to get a guy who's gonna be thirty one next year and starting to show a little bit of of age, and certainly a lot of crankiness I will say that the more might be, gene? And if it is I if using this this means that Antonio Brown is really really smart the more. He goes on social media and makes it difficult. Yeah. Act like like, a diva the the less team is going to offer the Steelers for him. So you know, it it kinda screws the Steelers over in the process they have to get rid of him. But now they're not getting as much back. So that would be really really smart. But I wonder if you know team the the potential suitors are looking at all this and saying themselves, she we really want this guy who so eager to burn bridges in a place where he's had so much excess on our Scott, we're not gonna have as much success.

"So I do hope we see more of that. Well, it always surprise me that we didn't see a lot of it. The first two years under saw always kind of thought that the Seattle defense went hand in hand with that sort of aggressive in your face press coverage, you know, read it's scrimmage in the forty Niners haven't done that as much as I was expecting when when shawl was coming in. Yeah. It's. There's there's a lot. I think gets a bad rap in a lotta ways for for his scheme. It's it's a very -able scheme. There's lots of there's lots of there's a lot that goes into it. And we've talked at length on the show about it. So our listeners probably don't wanna hear me, why philosophical about the issues with solid, but hopefully, I think Joe woods brings a bit more that man coverage because I think in today's NFL if you can play man coverage, or at least you can mix it up and not stay predictable and not end up like the chargers where you play, you know, man, coverage just ten percent of the time. And so when you're zone coverage isn't working you have no change up. And you have nothing to go to. I think overall you're you're better off defense. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No, I agree. And that'll be something to kind of add to the the repertoire, I think in in year three of the skied now Ritz Tangaroa he interviewed for the Broncos offense coordinator job. He is the odds on favorite for getting it. I don't know if they've actually formally announced him getting that job. But it seems like that's a lot. He's now in day to day three of the interview process. But I'm curious why he was initially blocked, but then was allowed to interview because the team has seemed to have blocked just about everyone except for skiing Carello. So what was it about the job of the role or anything that initiated the change of heart for the forty Niners? Well, I don't even know if there was a change your heart. I mean, it I haven't figured out. What happened initially that they they rejected the interview request Cowger Shanahan was on vacation for a little while. I wonder if the disconnected as simple as as that that you know, somebody else sort of speaking for him. And then when he got back, you know, incommunicado he he sorted. It out, you know, one of the reasons is because you know, the other the other two guys Mike McDaniel and Michael Fleur. They were requested for OC positions as well. They're already coordinators entitle one is the pass game coordinator the other is the run game coordinator they help Shanahan with the the the game planning each week. I mean, he's those his to top lieutenants, and they were being asked to interview with teams where they wouldn't have play calling duties, so it would the their their duties in rezone and in Green Bay wouldn't have been all that different than what they are here in Santa Clara show. I think that was part of it. He leans heavily on those guys. He wants them around. I mean, that's probably. In in even bigger part. And then as far as getting Rillo, it is a true promotion for him. I mean, he he's going from quarterbacks coach to offense coordinator so under Vic Fangio because they're fans you he's definitely going to call plays under under Vic Fangio. So it's it's a true step up the ladder for skiing role that would have been pretty hard for for Shanahan to block because you are keeping this guy from a golden opportunity show. I would like to know to the back room haggling that went on there. I mean, these two franchises are obviously close to one another given who's in in the power positions of the mall show. I guarantee you there was some wrangling. I don't know what that is at this point. But all find out soon enough. Yeah. I wonder if this is anything to Nick Mullins next year because I do think they will. Have a legitimate competition for that number two role and and Shanahan might may end up keeping all three quarterbacks on the active roster. But I think you've mentioned it and mayo 'cause mention that as well that Mullins was a scanner elegant..

"I I would not be surprised if they adopt a very similar attitude to that. I know that Seattle is always going to be the the measure and the the defense for which the the forty Niners is based on. But I wonder if attitude wise it's going to be those the late nineties Tampa defenses. I think it's a welcome change. And I'm actually excited if that is indeed going to be something the team is going to emphasize because this is a passing league. It's the new NFL, and you look at the four offenses that are in the championship games and the top offense the league, you know, the defenses kind of all over the place in the chiefs. They they depending on whether or not they play at home or away. It depends on whether or not they pack a defense to play. So I think the there's an interesting debate. I think as to whether or not you just keep improving your offense. So you don't need as much of a defense or try to remain a balanced a little bit and one of the other areas where the Niners improved a little bit. I think is in hiring Joe woods as the defensive backs coach and defensive passing game coordinator, which I think is an interesting title to append to his his name makes for an interesting business card. I guess but he was someone who the Niners. I got a little better by subtraction. Unintentionally when Jeff halfway left to be the co defensive coordinator at Ohio State. Yeah. I agree with you. I mean, at least you have more experienced there. And that seems to be, you know, something the forty Niners or, you know, interested in they've got a very young out to Richard Sherman a very young secondary. And he saw some guys, you know, doing things that they they didn't like Kella Witherspoon Adrian Colbert etcetera. They didn't didn't have any competition in the off season. I felt like they went through the preseason. Just making sure that they didn't get hurt especially at the state people's vision of our. Yeah. Exactly. And then and then the regular season starts, and no one knows how to tackle. Because nobody was was practicing it in in training camp in in the pre season. So I mean, I think all of that is related. They wanted a guy who could bring a little thunder to the position room, and you know. They think that they found it in show woods. I really don't know at all. I don't know anybody that that's worked with him. So I can't I can't say, but the that that experience is what I think the forty Niners were after now in Denver was he played a lot of cover one played a lot of men coverage. He played about thirty five percent cover one in about forty five percent man coverage overall the Niners are not quite that high. When you look at the man coverage percentage, Robert Sawyer says it's usually in about a twenty five percent issue area. Little bit below league average he definitely zone team. But when you look at their split safety looks they played more after the bye, but still there cover three single high defense. Do you think that this will also bring additional man coverage kind of or an increase in man coverage to the defense? Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I would think that Robert Shaw has say in that aspect of it. You know, I tend to think that they should. And that would kinda go hand in hand what we were talking about as far as the defensive line. Just more aggressive across the board. They played some of their best games when they were in man coverage, and there were a couple of games, especially late in the year where they opened heavy pressure and man coverage on the back in and they just have athletes back there. They do various more sue breath due to Kella Witherspoon also athletic Sherman is regaining the old man dad's strength that you know, he wants had. And I think that part of the reason they didn't get a lot of turnovers. This year was because they were just not near the ball to make a play. And that's what happens when you spot drop. You're just you're breaking the ball. And you're just be behind. Today's quarterbacks were really good. And I think man coverage will put your defenders in more of a position to succeed..

"Know, he gives everybody really sunny praise, and I'm sure that the players pre sheet that, but you really kinda see what's going on behind the scenes by who's playing what's naps, and it was clear that and Thomas wasn't getting a lot of them early in the season. It was clear that Shanahan wanted that to change and it did change after he said that. So I think that's that's kind of all you you need to know of the outline. Of how that went do you think this increases that chances of the team going after someone like Ziggy Ansah given the history of the new defensive line coach in Detroit, and the fact that onces an impending free agent someone that the team may have been interested in last year in the free agency period. Yeah. You know, there's certainly now two guys that know all about him the new position coach and Martin Mayhew. What I don't know is whether these guys loves Iansa, or you know, we're disappointed by him. I I don't know the answer. But it does seem like if you're kind of circling edge rushers who will become available in most of these guys won't onsides who like. No, not most of the time. You don't. But onset was franchise. Last year was injured again this this past year, and they're not going to franchise him. Again. I I don't think just because of the cost of doing that show. He is one guy that looks like he will make it to the free agent market. And you can definitely see scenario where they bring him in. He's the Leo, you know, three down guy, you know, very physical very strong. And then they dress like Josh Allen out of Kentucky. And he's the strong side linebacker cre- down guy. Keep them on the field in Russia. Those guys from the edges when it's you know, a an obvious passing situation. So that's a that's a fairly obvious, you know, solution to their edges shoes. And you know, it could be one that comes to pass in in March and April that one. Thing that I thought you noted that was interesting in one of your as in the athlete was you noticed you mentioned that this signals perhaps a change in the forty Niners defensive philosophy. And you said that now perhaps it offensive line is going to maybe just gonna peak at the run while they're getting out the quarterback. What do you think is that just a coaching change? Or did you hear something from the staff in general that made you think okay? This is actually going to be an active change. It's going to be passed pass pass. We'll worry about the run later. I've heard it talked about in sort of a philosophical change. And you understand why? I mean, there was a stat today that for the first time and fell history teams pass more on first down than they than they ran so more and more. We say this every year, but it's it's it's even more. So now teams are just passing the ball all the time. So. Right. Exactly. And you know, rushing the passer, then becomes paramount. I remember talking to booger McFarland during the season. I was asking about selling the Thomas in which the forty I should do home Thomas it cetera et cetera. And he said that you know, those Tampa defenses that he John Lynch Warren Sapp played in and early on. They did not have any decent edge rushers. They only acquired Simeon rice later early on the philosophy of that team was play them run on the way to the quarterback. If if the Ponant happens to hand the ball off, you're ready. You know, beating the crap out of the the guy in front of you to get to the quarterback is just tackle the ball carrier on your way in and I think that I don't know if it's going to be quite to that degree the new philosophy. But I it wouldn't surprise me. If it is. I mean, you've got a guy in Chris kiffin who is the son of the. Architect of those very Tampa Bay defenses that we're talking about the the Tampa Bay defence that John Lynch played on show..

"So I mean that that says all all you need to know about Jessica, Nina, they liked him. But they weren't bowled over by him. I noticed over the years over the last two years that he wasn't a big fan of Solomon Thomas either. And you saw that reflected in in the snap counts. He see that reflected in a lot of times, you can tell who's the favorite son in these groups by who takes the, you know, the first reps when a, you know, wide receiver group goes through a drill or running back group goes to drill or a defensive line Rupe goes through the drill. And it certainly wasn't home and Thomas doing that. And I heard skinning barking at Thomas if you times over the last two years, it was clear that he he wasn't one of skinny favorites. And this is the guy that franchise, really? Wants to see succeed given the the spot that they they they picked him. So I can't help. But think that that most played a role as well. And then Thirdly, I think they do legitimate. We have a lot of respect for the new guy as you noted. They may be moves right after the dolphins parted ways with him. So that was sort of the impetus for at all. So they feel like he's going to be an improvement on that defensive line. Do you think this was a move that Robert Sala requested? Do you think it was Cal Shanahan taking a look and making a move with? Where did this decision point come from? I don't know the answer to that. My guess is that it's you know, it probably originated on the defensive side Shanahan saying, you know, we we're going to upgrade anywhere. Where would you wanna do it? And you saw that start to happen last year member Chris kiffin was brought in at at this time of year ago, and essentially help coach the defensive line. So this is an area that they have been obviously at the very least been wanting to augment since since last season or since the end of last season. So I I think they probably knew where the weaknesses were. And like I said they saw a a potential replacement, and they they pounced on it. It's interesting. You mentioned that the skinny now, which I've been pronouncing the Goni all this time. That is something that we are. And why wouldn't you? Why would? Wouldn't you pronounce it as Goania? It's that's how it spelled that how I used to pronounce it until I was corrected. So yeah, I don't know how you get getting out of Goania. But that's that's how you say. You know, we we have a long tradition of pronouncing names accurately on the better pockets. We're known for it really part of our brain. I would say that. Good good. So it's curious that he was not one of the favorites of skinny because they're did seem to be a bit of a disconnect with shannahan especially late in the season talking about the plane time of Solomon Thomas, and he would say, you know, I hope we get more snaps on the inside. And I think from the outsider's perspective. It almost seemed like a rift between Sala and Shanahan but come to find out. That's probably more of the position coaches influence anything else. Well, yeah. I mean, it's the position coach that is is sort of sending these guys in and out of the game. So he's really the one. Who's dictating the snap counts? And that was a really easy way to kind of figure things out, and we'll be in the future. I mean, just just look who's playing. So you need to see these guys. Can you know, say all the positive things in the world and sell us developed a bit of a reputation of that among the media, you.

"Podcast. You're one of the original friends of the pods. So it's good to have you back. Thanks for having back. Yes. Always enjoy being on this pot. Yeah. It's I actually went back and looked even way back in two thousand eight the first time, I tried to launch a podcast actually had you on. You're like one of the I guess, and you were so gracious back then to to come on the show and now ten years later here, we are doing something really similar. Two thousand eight is single Terry. Is that Mike Martz year in Maine? Remember? Doesn't seven was the Ken Dorsey year. I think two thousand eight may have been Mike Martz with the the OJ te'o. Just turn it over with you. Yeah. When Mike Moore decided I'm gonna make Vernon Davis into a left tackle. That's the best way to use. This. This asset is to have him. Stay back and block every replay. Three years later. Here's burnin Davis. You know, the game of his lives in the in the playoffs against the saints. And then the giants he was really good in that game too. It's so funny. I was watching the Washington Redskins play. And it was Alex Smith throwing to Vernon Davis on a deep crossing route. And I'm like, wow, it's it's twenty teen. This is this is still a thing. Yeah. I mean, it's it's some good genetics with both we both of those guys there, and you know, Vernon remember he got he took a big hit against Pittsburgh. I think it was his rookie season and Mr. big chunk of that season. But in really going on injured for most of his time with the forty Niners, and that comes comes to bear at the end of these guys careers. I mean, all those injuries start to catch up with you. And in Vernon was Choi Pall Mall, submarine them on a hit some of your your longest standing with Nur's will will remember that. And I think he suffered a fracture in one of those those lay bones down there. But that's the only major one I can remember with him. He did he did have a long Lester glorious, John juice filled career with the forget, we'll get a little bit of Vernon Davis when we talked about the New Orleans story. But I I want to talk about the assistant coach. Because that's what's dominating your time. Right now, the forty Niners, of course, hired Chris Kasich thing I got that. Right. As the the new defensive line coach. And I think my first question really is why you think the team moved on from Jeff Segovia because he was pretty quick. I mean, the gas was fired December thirty first and Brian Florez kind of informally hired as the head coach January thirteenth. And then just a few hours later. It seems like teams like sorry, we fired Goania, and then they aggressively pursued Chris Caserta, which was a bit of a risk. So kinda help me understand. What was the impetus for making that and that move and taking the leap or not knowing that they had another coach under contract. Well, I think it's multi-layered one is that this was a four win team. And despite what crowd a hand said about, you know, keeping the staff intact. You know, a four win team has to look at every avenue to improve it self. And they obviously felt like they could make an upgrade at that spot..
