"A month two months ago I mean. So the when they found out that they were getting Cam Newton willing, the whole just took place, which is impressive enough. But to go out there and not really have any glitches in terms of ball handling because that's always the biggest concern for most of these team when I was really interesting because they haven't been doing that there too. That's what I'm saying. I was in I was in Tennessee with Marcus Mariota, and I was introduced more zone region. They would call some of these zone reads RPO's with me in practice not ever in the game please don't do that but just the ball handling and pulling it out and then pulling it and reading one defender, and then also making that split-second decision of whether to give where to throw at whether to do those, it takes timing and it takes effort and for them to go out there especially with. The running back position in how came held onto that ball, and then would poet late was impressive to me, and that goes not only to cam in those guys in the hard work that they put in. But the coaching that took place with Josh gangs and that offense often the unit. Yeah. It's interesting. Somebody actually said to me was I didn't even think about this. How can you have to process information when you're doing that too because it's like the stuff it's like putting the ball out. A hand off to like now I got now I gotTa make a decision. It literally could get my head taken off. Then I'm also I also, it'd be paying attention to what happens downfield and this is all happening like that. I mean, I remember they called one in a preseason game where it was just basically a slant with a quick flat route by the slot receiver and I had to make a decision off the end crashing well as the end of the field it kind of looked like he was gonNA crash. So I pulled it in all of a sudden. He just sat there and looked at me and I was like. No idea. What to do this right now fired it into the stands and I was like, yeah, that's not my cup of tea because it like you said, it happens in a split second of that decision and Cam was on it. Always I mean all the all Sunday afternoon it was incredible to watch make the correct rates. For you for get you out of here, and this is something you actually I want to give you credit for this because I I hadn't heard the staff. This is really incredible. Five, quarterbacks lead their teams in rushing on. Sunday and all five of these guys won their Games Kyle Murray in Arizona Cam Newton and New England Josh Allen in Buffalo Lamar Jackson in Baltimore Russell Wilson Seattle and in the case of Buffalo. New. England. We actually saw I. Mean they're running quarterback power. You know what I'm saying like so. As somebody played the position as somebody who? You're yourself short. You you. You get out there and run a little bit. There were games where you would where you would take hits. Is this sustainable to play that way in the NFL..

"They fumbled a kickoff. They like there was a skirmish early in the game between Evans in Lattimore. Like they're just seemed to be like a lot of like these. Kind of like I dunno like discipline issues let's say like. Certain things that seem like unforced issues. and I wonder how you think Brady is GonNa react to that because he has been in such a place. That's he's been a places and not that New England's perfect but it's very buttoned up. They don't generally make mistakes. If they do make mistake, it's not like it's going to lead to three more, right. So like right, how do you think Brady like walks away and digest all of that like knowing where he came from what it's been like for him for twenty years right I can only speak from my own experiences and every when I left New England. You have an appreciation for what they do when you're there but you really have a better appreciation for once you leave because you understand that not all teams are created the same not all coaches are the same in everybody handles those type of the just the general philosophies differently and I know that New England and Bill Belichick and what they do with situational football and how they don't the always hear the term you know D- don't hurt. Yourself are don't kill yourself with like penalties like you said, that was a huge momentum change in the game when they jumped off sides on fourth and one and all that stuff But you know when you when you do that kind of stuff, you put yourself in a bad position as a football team because it's so decided by usually one or two places throughout the course of the season and new. England's the best at situational football in. The small intricacies, the monotonous. Excuse me the meticulous The meticulous attention to detail that they have in New England really shows up on Sundays in you very rarely see those type of situations come up and when they do it's kind of shocking but other teams across the League it happens all the time and it is it blows my mind in but it goes back to to bill belichick in his greatness in what he's able to achieve with those players in the communication that takes place to make them understand how important these. Aspects. Of the game are to not beat ourselves come Sunday in. So there's gotta be a level adjustment for him as well in terms of how they manage those type of situations. Okay. I want to spend around the league a little bit in the second one. Last thing I'm Brady are you and I'm put you on the spot here. Are you more optimistic about where he is the puck nears or less optimistic about worries? The buccaneers then you were at four o'clock on Sunday Well I was interested in I. You know what?.

"Are going to get to our special guests right after this. Welcome back old friend of mine from the NBC Pre-game Show you know him from the New England patriots the Kansas City chiefs and man you're going to have to kind of fill going just keep going their separate line. Point Right. We got the Vikings. We had buffalo for a Quick Cup of coffee before I got traded Dallas and. Yeah, Yeah Yeah, just a lot of fun stuff. On Your House with all the jerseys, you know what the kids cap a few of them for sure. But you know normally when you trade from tenure done with that team, right you're sitting there going absolutely not we're throwing all of our stuff way all the hats since you got everything else we're starting clean slate. So we don't have a lot of carryover from the other James. See. I always thought like any any like I would think like if it were me at least I would have like a nice finish basement with like kind of like a room where you'd have the big screen up. So you can watch stuff down there and then on another wall, you'd have like every Jersey see because you're you're self promoter I on the other hand will pretty modest. To humble for that, you know just I've got I've got a lot of stuff that I should put up, but it's just kind of in stored. So you know that's the type of person I am. All right. So we want to start now and we're going to talk about a lot of quarterback stuff here from the weekend. But I WANNA to start met with an ex teammate of yours and probably the most famous of your ex team mates and it looked really really weird seeing him in a Buccaneers Jersey on Sunday I'm sure it looked weird for you. I just wanted to start here like you know what was your first impression? Three hours of watching the game and obviously they lose a they could've they could've lost by three scores if the saints punched in there at the end what's your initial impression? Just seeing him? You know in a new offense. What new teammates wholesale for the first time in in about two decades? Well, I. Think we're all excited because obviously the potential offense has with all the weapons that they have on that offense we thought you look we'll just put brady in there and all of a sudden there's going to be success but we saw the growing pains that most quarterbacks go through anytime you go to a new organization with a new team, a new scheme and you you saw that there's the miscommunication early with Evans in which resulted in the overthrow interception and then the other interception it just was a little bit behind..

"Assigning the Franchise Tag Joe -Tuni- when it became clear you weren't going to be able to re sign him. long-term. They've done some things that sort of have set this up for a while and I wanted to go back to that super bowl crash against the rams they were in twenty two personnel at the end of the game. Now I, know that they threw it all over the are there and that was part of the game plan. Get the Rams big defense, big personnel on the field spread out and throw it on them, and you can do that whenever Brown caskey. But I think there's also like kind of like. I. Think it was also kind of a referendum on the talent they had elsewhere right and in the way that they build the team and so. I think one of the reasons why cam was attractive to them. Is it sort of unlock some things? They couldn't do what Brady and sort of was like another step into what they'd already built, which was zig against a lot of zagging in the league and that Zagging in the League to me it's two hundred, fifty pound defensive ends is two hundred twenty pound linebackers. It's safeties who are converted corners. It's all of that right in. So I'm not that surprised in fact, I will say this. I think a lot of what Josh did on Sunday. My guess is he was excited to do it. My guess is he was really excited to have the chance to do it because I think he I think he's had some clubs in his bag. The just hasn't had a chance to swing yet and he could swing away on Sunday and I think what we saw that patriots offense was also pretty rudimentary in terms of what they were running. Yeah. everybody. Now at home thinks that every time there's his own read. The quarterback has his eyes up that it's an rpo and that he can pull it up and throw the ball when every once and I don't know about you. But I didn't see a lot of that with the Patriots I saw a lot of just straight up zone read. It's either going to be cam running power football or he's handing it off to someone because that's how they've worked at formation earlier with emotion or something like that I thought. Cam played well however. I didn't expect fifteen carries like that. That's where I was like, okay. Wait a minute where are you going with this and the whole the success in the offense he was highly motivated and to your point I think mcdaniels was like a puppy with to peters like Oh. My God. This is GonNa be awesome and you're right he gets the call the place that. He wanted to call and twenty ten if he would have been able to sink his teeth into Tim Tebow but fifteen carries a lot and don't know if that is ultimately sustainable however I can recognize that what they did offensively was like one sixteen of probably what they have I thought it was relatively basic. So is so how much is this though like and? Like our special guests has an incredible stat that I don't want to steal from I'll tell you about it off the year because it really is crazy. And we're going to talk about that in a little bit on the podcast but here's some extra stuff for you. How much of that crash do you think? So I think Josh said on conference call on Tuesday morning six of those plays were option plays right where it was a read and there are a couple others that were scrambles maybe part of it was Miami was saying, okay, we're gonNA give you the. We're going to give you the keeper read here. Like war going to crash I. I don't know if they're reading the end in these places..

"They won in a way that I think people aren't used to seeing that Saints Team Win and they've been winning this way for a little while now at least being capable of it. Jim Ers drew brees threw for on Sunday. Was it like one ninety or something sixty? Okay. Okay. Now, ask yourself this in two thousand, twelve, two, thousand, thirteen, two, thousand, fourteen with the Saints Win Games brees throwing for one hundred sixty yards absolutely not. So to me, that was so impressive and if you look down the line, right like Marcus Williams had that pick at full extension marshon lattimore had the Janoris Jenkins have had the pick six, right? You had mark hunt blocking a field goal. You had tastes them hill playing like this sort of slash role Emmanuel Sanders who I almost forgot was on the team for the first two quarters was huge on the drive that sort of put it away for the saints right making those two catches in the red zone fighting his way into the end zone, and then you see like Marshon Lattimore who? Got Mike Evans face early and my was a little beat up coming in and just completely took him out of the game and so. Like I know, a lot of people are focused on what Sean Payton said about play. What you drew brees is stat line looked like I was so impressed with the saints because a piece of their game that they've always been relying on the it's been their identity for the last fifteen years. Wasn't really there on Sunday and they still beat the crap out of the team that most people regard as the top contender to the throne in that division and to your point like I just brought up the year-by-year numbers for the. New. Orleans Saints Right and the last three years. If you go from seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, they went eleven and five, thirteen and three, thirteen and three, and in all of those years there point differential on. It was somewhere between one, twenty, two and say, one fifty one is really where where it came in at on average. So that's a pretty good point differential but to your point, it normally was the defense played well, because they played with the lead and we really underestimate I think in modern day football how balide lead is important to allowing your defense to settle in. Take some chances to be aggressive knowing that if you make a mistake, you're still going to be okay because you have a leader, your offense rolling and to me that was one thing that Sean Payton always had in his back pocket was that if I have to dial it up defensively and I get burned well, I got guys on the other side who can get down the field in two minutes and sort of even the score so To speak and I it's a good point that you bring up. Look I. Think I think what we saw from Tampa was they were clearly out of sync offensively and their offensive line did not play well but that was because the Saints Defensive Line played very well they made those guys play bad because upfront they got after it in a way that we're now becoming more accustomed to seeing out of the out of the saints you look at. It to me. It's how quickly they get out to the lead bill..

"Other player wound up, just completely bussing the marketed his position, so if you're trading card atoms. The contract itself is a major major thing and just wanting to make a deal from happening. Even if the jets wanted it to happen, which I don't think they do right now. Is is not just the draft capital. It's either you're signing him to a market breaking deal or more. You're handing him a tunnel average question number four from Tyler. Schmitt that's at teach ninety. Was the over under on how many weeks regular season the NFL is able to play this season. I'm going to set the over under. At fifteen on, they have it built into their schedule where they go down to fourteen. If they wanted to it's pretty easy to collapse the schedule to fourteen games. you I also think that if they have to move the schedule back. There's no question they can do that because they've got flexibility with the Super Bowl teams even want and I've said this a few times now. Something's even want the league to just on its own. move the schedule back. So I think the League's determined to play sixteen game schedule. A. I think it's possible. You know there's a scenario that know POPs up or there are issues that lead the schedule to being truncated to fourteen games are determined to play as many games as they can. And I think you get a sixteen game season? Just to be safe, you're all say the over under fifteen because I think, it's either fourteen or sixteen, but I would. My guess is going to be sixteen question number five for Michael, Dunn that's at Mikey WM free kneeling for the National Anthem in an empty stadium without fans booing lessons the optics of it all. Don't you agree that's making NFL's NFL's Goodell's sudden black lives matter stance. Whatever the players want a relatively empty gesture, I do not think that I like I, I. The way I look at the way that Cadel's handle this Michael. He was forced into a corner, pushed into a corner by the players. That video basically forced Roger Goodell to pick aside. And they it the brilliance of the video. I've said this a few times is it's not complaining? It's not getting upset. It's basically giving Roger a solution and in giving Roger that solution. If Roger was going to take that solution and use that solution, he was necessarily going to take the players side, and so the players by doing that to a land line in the sand. If you stay silent if you don't do anything you on our side if you tell if you if you. Read the statement we gave you and you are on our side so i. don't think it's an empty gesture. I think it's a either what Roger in the NFL did was a strong endorsement of the players and now Roger can't back down Roger cannot. Back off his stance, because like at that point, if he were to all of a sudden reverse course, and now advocate for you know putting a new anthem policy, or whatever he would lose any ounce of credibility. He's got with the players and so he can't do that and continue in his job. And so I think because of that. It's not an empty gesture I think there's a lot of strength gesture and. I think even an empty stadium I. Think you're GonNa, see kneeling and I think even if the television networks don't show it, the media that's on hand whatever number of media that is will cover it, and so I think there will be some power in it, and it'll give the players a chance to talk about these things, which is sort of the idea of the whole thing, anyway number six last question the week from Jonathan Green at Jay blaze NYC. If saquon a great year. Gets crazy for the giants as strongly trading him before he quietly seeks insane money. We can't pay a running back sixteen million dollars a year. Jonathan is a fascinating question. If say go on a great year, no question about it. He's going to be fighting for a new contract. And he should every running back to get paid at the earliest juncture, possibly can which under NFL rules after three years? We saw Zeke Elliott. Conduct will was basically a wildcat strike, and he wound up getting a contract. We saw Christian. McCaffrey paid this off season. The running backs have get paid as soon as they possibly can. and. I think SAQUON. If I'm saquon and I have a great year, I'm doing everything I can to get my second contract next offseason and This stands to be the first real. Like mega extension of the of the Gioja Gera- and I think one of the things. The may push the giants to do. It is because he's the right kind of guy, because I think, he'll be a program guy for Joe because I think that he's going to do a lot of the right things for Joe and I. Think you know part of the whole program that shows trying to set up. There is your award. The people who do the right thing you send messages when who you pay, send messages and who you draft. A big part of that was reflected in this year's draft I mean if you look at the guys. The giants drafted guys like Andrew. Thomas from Georgia Xavier mckinney from from Alabama like team captains types. The type of guys you want to build around his people and so I think you know there's obviously there's a lot of. A lot of problems with the idea of paying a running back and what it could mean when back goes into his fifth or sixth year. That said this is a great great player. The same way Zeke Elliott's a great great player the same way Christian, McCaffrey a great great player is the risk that this winds up playing out like you know. Todd Gurley played out in La sure sure you know, but if you if you ask Sean McVeigh I think he'd tell you. There was still worth doing what they did with girly, because Gurley was the right kind of guy and girly. girly with somebody they built around somebody who helped their young quarterback You know kind of grow into the offense and somebody who helped him get to a super bowl, and so again like I. I understand the whole premise of not paying and running back I agree that you need to be really really careful. You know and I'm like look. We'll see what happens with the Bengals Joe. Medicine and the Vikings Dalvin Cook and the Saints Alvin Kamara but you know I don't think you can just look at these guys just like I. Know You, WanNa, look at everything very coldly. I just think. You have to kind of take into consideration how you're building your program. The kind of people you want to build your program around. The contributions guys make two teams, not saying you're giving them back pay, but just kind of the contributions guys make the team teams and what they mean to your locker room, so. I understand your question. Jonathan is a good one. It's an interesting one but I think if SAQUON has an awesome year, and it means much to Daniel Jones's development, and he's an important piece of building the Locker Room I. The giants consider paying appreciate. You guys coming out as always. We've gone every week here. I think going back to last. What is that like end?

"Like the two minute drill was to go to buy two with Tom two to three by one formations, which means the receivers on one side to receivers on the other two to three by one is three receivers on one side one receiver on the back side. However, I was more comfortable three by one nation I just thought I saw on the field better. I like the row concept, so we immediately switched right off the Bat Josh. mcdaniels did as I started to play in going to the minute. We're just going to go three by one two three by one so smart adjustments like that then. As. We started to get going. You know. Ali is leader first few weeks a Lotta Slip Screens Excuse me. Get my confidence going some boots, those kind of things, but as we moved on in the season in progress, we naturally might mix maturation process within the system and playing more allowed me to grow, and then we kind of became that saint system that we had been in the past with Tom I. Think you had like you're GonNa? Like could you be? You probably were beating Tom and races pretty bad like if you. You to race at that point, you probably would been in pretty bad right would crush. Are you kidding me all right? Never been the most beautifully today you did. Did Josh find a way to use like your athletic and I'm not talking about broken plays, but like Josh, find a way to use your athleticism in a way. That maybe wouldn't have been to Tom Strength there's no. We definitely integrated more boots and get outside the. The pocket. Roll out sprint outs, those kind of plays that would get me outside the pocket and utilize one of my strengths at that point in my career was being able to move a little bit and have a little bit more speed in those kinds of things, so we definitely did that, and another great example of that was when Jacoby came in, and he played in that game against the colts on a short week. Week and you saw that they were doing the RPO's. In the, he had a great run down the sideline. Our belief for touchdown S I think, and so that was just another example of Josh, mcdaniels The adaptation that he makes throughout the course of a week to a player strengths and knows, but we can take advantage of this misguide strengths and utilize it by going out and changing and making subtle adjustments within the gameplay. How Long Do you think? Do you think that that that? Is that something they can do on like you know. What can't cameras been playing like? A lot of read option stuff. A lot of you know like you said a lot of rollout stuff. He's made a lot of plays obviously scramble drill to. Is that a pretty easy adjustment in your mind for Josh for bill to make the offense work for a Cam? Well I think it's going to take a little bit of time on task. You know and I think it's also going to be have to that open discussion with him, and because there's going to be plays and RPO's that he's been doing since college that he's more probably familiar with than maybe even a Josh mcdaniels who hasn't run that type of offense of structure for a long time or ever, and so it's going to be going out. Out and communicating with other coaches and understanding zone, read game and why they're doing those kind of things at the same time. Cam, Newton doesn't get enough credit. He's also a very good pocket passer. I mean he can fire the ball. He's got as good his arm as anybody in the league and I always remember watching him sitting there going. How did he just make that? Throw forty yards outfield like on a on an outcome like the. Post quarter out, so he can stay in the pocket if you want him to. At the same time you to be able to utilize some of those strengths that he has because it just you can dictate the pace to the defensive side of the ball offensively, and they can't cheat that way, and you get so many easy plays and easy. Five Yard scrambles are runs off RPO's where you don't block one individual. And then he's not in his gap, and they're not gap sound, and you make the cut back, and it just opens things up, and it allows for so much flexibility within that offense instructor. Well. You've mentioned like like you mentioned like what they did. Did for Randy right like and what they did for you like. Do you think like there's like a part of this? That like excites bill? You know and excites Josh like that are now. We gotta figure out a totally different way to do it and where I'm. Dave I mean they're obviously different defensively than they were ten or fifteen years ago when they sort of changed back and forth, and they've done a lot of, but because Tom's been the quarterback forever, they really haven't gone through that sort of evolution offensively. They've tweaks. They've changed some things. They've obviously kind of adapted to the Times really well, but we haven't seen this sort of more into something. Something completely different on offense like maybe we have a couple of times on defense. Do you think there's part of this that really Kinda like gets bill and Josh going? Where like now? They're like really like not that they weren't before, but like the really chomping at the bit to get going. Because this is, this is going to be totally different than what they've done. Right in the it adds so much strength, strength and opportunity to that offense, because of the fact that look when we watched New England for the past. However long you have to absolutely take into account the receivers in this, but you never take into tom running the ball or doing like. Like that will defense is now have to prepare for the running quarterback, the options the bootlegs the screens that go with it, and so you can't queue in on low. We'll if we just lockdown this guy and that guy like last year we were saying if Julian gets hurt. They're in trouble, but there's another athlete back there now. That is going to create a lot more options for them offensively, so they go into a game, and they see a weakness of the defensive end position or the outside linebackers coach..

"Root for the team. Martin, but we'll see. We'll see how we'll see how it plays out. All right. That's former jets and Panthers Center and eight year. Teammate of Cam Newton Ryan. Kalil Ryan thanks so much for coming in. And as promise now we're going to bring in Ryan's old USC teammate. Matt Cassel Book Good Buddy of mine the TV with him last year. Hopefully we'll be doing TV again in the fall. I'm not sure any that is gonNA. Look like but he's going to give us some insight on I. Like playing quarterback in new. England, what it'll mean for Cam and all that so matt welcome in. Thank you very much for having me? Absolutely lot of Cam, Newton Talk? Yeah, no question Oklaho-. Let's start there like I. Did the same thing with Ryan like you know that comic comes across the sky and Sunday night like when you see that news. What's the first thing that you kind of think of when when you saw the Cam Newton? Is GonNa be a patriot? You know what I was pretty excited about it to be honestly for the Patriots Organization. Obviously, we have jared you have Brian Hoyer, but to bring a guy like Cam Newton in the dynamic player that he is into the program, it energizes team, and it also brings a guy that just a few years. Was An MVP guy a you know a player that's GonNa. Come in, and his skill set it if he's healthy, which it seems like he is, and he's motivated could mean a lot of great things for this offense. Okay, so I I WANNA, go back in your career to two thousand and seven and the reason I'm going back there because I feel like a lot of the questions were hearing on camera the same questions we heard on Randy Moss right so rainy comes in. He'd been dynamic, but kind of a flamboyant personality hip put himself out there a lot and I remember like back then like the question was maybe even more so about like. How much does Randy have left? But it was also. How is Randy Moss GonNa fit into the Patriots program that had been known as so button up and everything else. And so I'm wondering if you think that like what maybe you saw in two thousand seven, how bill like sort of Integrated Randy, and who? He wasn't the program how Randy conducted himself like how much of that may apply now to integrating Canada into New England, well I think that there's no organization. There's no coaching staff that does a better job of utilizing player strengths, and so you know when Randy I came in. He was excited to be there. He knew that this was. Was a winning organization. He had a chance to win. Super Bowls, and that's kind of as a veteran player in a guy that's been around the league and been are a lot of bad teams. He had that opportunity so was soon as he got there, he took a. he took the mentality that he's GonNa come in. He's GonNa work. He's GonNa. Do those things at the same time Josh? mcdaniels did a great job. You know his route tree. Wasn't this extensive route tree and We didn't make him do a ton of different things, but he ran a great stop route. which is basically you're running the defender off to nine yards. You turn around. You're getting the ball, but on your outside shoulder. He ran a ton of slant routes. Obviously the deep balls the in cut so the that's what he did really well, and within that structure they put him in a position to be successful. And then we also obviously had the other guys that year was Welker Donte Stallworth shake cod will all? All these different different players that you know what they couldn't just single a single. I mean doubled really the entire time, so it allowed him to those one on one opportunities. Okay, so I want to get to football stuff, but I WANNA ask by the personality thing like how do you think how does that play sort of kind of bring? Somebody who's got a big personality like that? How does that play sort of absorbed that and like you know you've seen? How like you know you've seen? Cam is and. How do you think Cam fits into that building? Well, I think that they have to accept for who he is obviously have to understand that he has a flamboyant personality and he's a guy that's gonna come and lead in a different way in a different manner than what Tom Brady did in Brady obviously leaves a way in a lot of what I learned from him, and how to conduct myself in the media and all that. That stuff. It also stems from Bill Belichick and also Brady and the same time. They're going to be some growing pains in that circumstance where you know cams going to have to learn like a they don't conduct themselves. They don't talk about other players injuries. They don't you don't talk about yourself. You don't compare yourself in, so that'll be a big adjustment for him and at the. The same time I know that he's motivated to come in and have success and be a guy that contributes because really you know he's playing for his next deal is what he's doing on this on this particular del he's on a one year deal and the fact that matter is I mean he's got one year to prove himself and go on and be a dominant player and. And, so I think he's GonNa. Do everything that he can to get in line with the Patriots. Way And what bills asking them and bills probably telling them what you do at our way, and you do the things that we need you to do, and you'd be leader that we want you to do well. It's GonNa. Pay Off in the end I want to run this by. Earlier in the podcast and I want to see if you agree with this. With, the celebrations I don't think I maybe wrong about this. I don't think bill really cares about that like. Maybe I think as long as it doesn't get in the way of the team winning like I don't know that I never really got the sense. That bill cared all that much of a guy. Celebrate Service Guy Wears a funny hat to the team press. I am I. Am I wrong there or like? Is that is is is that? Was that your experience there? No I think that's one hundred percent accurate I. I believe that the big issues bill has is when it becomes a distraction to the team. It's something that you said. It's something that you made a comment that we're going to dominate this team or you. You go out in the media and you talk about your injuries or talk about another player's injuries or make predictions. He does not like it. He hates it when people make predictions about the celebration, the antics on the field where you go out and you're having fun. That's what he actually preaches. He tells us there was time. I remember when we're going through. The course of the season and he's like we made a great tackle for loss, and nobody was celebrating a decent saw, and he put it up on the team meeting room, and he said guys were playing football. There should be a you know ten other hats over there celebrating that you're playing in you're you're enjoying this game that we play as adults in, so I think he welcomes that and it's something that I. I don't believe he'll have any problems whatsoever of leading Camby himself on the field and celebrate and do as Superman thing, and as long as it doesn't become a distraction on the outside the building and some of the comments that he makes or it away from what they're trying to achieve inside that building. Okay, so for like now type of the football stuff. Like what was your experience like? How much when when you? You get thrown in there in going into week. Two I guess really in two thousand and eight. Like how much flexibility in the offense was there because I know you and Tom were exactly the same as players so like how much to the offense really change in how much does the offense itself have the ability to sort of morphed to what a quarterback who's in there does well right over in my circumstance or Or a gray gray example, this was when we would go..

"The Cam Newton is the starter now that said, do they all the sudden start to poke and prod cam and realize hey, he looks good on the outside, but maybe he just ain't right on the inside. That's another part of this that I wonder. Is You know how much might cam need a little more time to be able to get back well this a goal and I think. That's A. That's a great point to Gresh. Because this is a guy who so used, I remember I've talked to his coaches about this, too. His coach by the way like one thing that should be, said his coaches. His teammates love them. That's why I don't think I don't think him. Fitting into the culture is going to be that big a deal. I don't think bill gives a shit of the guys wearing funny hats you. Really don't like now like you know. They may say if if they loo-. If they lose again game, they might say dude. Leave your hat in the Walker but I. don't like like I don't think he I don't. Know where hats after we lose here, yeah I mean look, but I don't i. don't think he. Got Bills. Bills more flexible with that stuff than people realize, and as long as it's not getting in the way, the team winning and I don't think anything cams does is really getting in the way, the team winning like I. I don't think bill's GonNa care about any of that stuff. Yeah, just don't be mopey and bring people down and I'm with you. I. Think on the whole he would fit. Initially I did question that, but the more people that I listened to and in all honesty. I heard Ron Rivera this week. Week talking about how hey I'd never doubt this kid. He's basically ticked off and I think coaches will be willing to bend a little bit for a guy that they know has great talent, and a little bit of that kind of motivation and I would think cam has to realize. Yeah, I'm Cam Newton but I'm also a new situation and there's a different standard that bell chuckle holdem to. He's a really good team guy I mean. That's the bottom line like I. Remember when he was coming out of Auburn. Like. The stories I remember hearing about him. You know like areas. Scouts are almost like investigators, so they'll go in there like the stories you remember hearing about. Cam were like he would do something Nice for the guy who is a cleaning up jocks. Three hours after the game was over right, and no one ever knew about it because he didn't and that to me is like like. That's way better than somebody who shows up at a charity event on a Tuesday right. That's who the Guy Really is book by. Acting when no one's watching and I think cams always check that box in Carolina going back to when he was in college and that's why all of his teammates. and. His coaches have always loved him. I do the point I want to touch on that. You brought up though I think mentality is going to be really important with Cam to, because this guy is so used to being a superhero physically like I think for an athlete. I think it affected. Can the last couple of getting hurt affected him the last couple of years and that? Will keep the Superman analogy going here. It made him mortal. So can he make that second adjustment if things aren't quite right like he's plenty tough, we know he's off the way he plays. You can't play that way in the NFL, not be tough, but if he is a little less than superman. How does he adjust to that I think that that's a fair question to ask. Because the guy has been able to sort of flip a switch and be so physically dominant at every level of football, and that will be taken to coaching as well because I would think that. They're probably meaning ballot. Check End mcdaniels. They're not just going to put him out there and be like. Go out there and beat you. It's no, this is the version of you that we want to run our offense and then hopefully let that stuff sorta come along. Okay, so my fifth takeaway. This is obvious. It's bad for the AFC east and I'm not saying it's. I'm not saying like the CAM is going to be a superstar, but now bilas options, and now like before if jared stood him, had got the camp and remember they haven't seen him at all in the spring. They haven't seen physically work in the spring. If, jared stem like for one reason or another falls on his face in the summer. They have another option now, and that's huge right like that's huge. The fact that they've got an experienced option on hand and all respect to Brian Hoyer I. Think he's got a valuable place and that quarterback room to but. Hoyer ain't Cam, Newton you know so now like the very least like. The outcome is either Cams Cami starting or jared students great. Is just you. You've increase the odds that you're going to be okay at that position year after Tom Brady and that was the biggest question coming into the summer for the Patriots and I like they've got a much better chance of answering that question with the. Yes, that I know than they did a week ago. You know and Sean McDermott will this time and Carolina I. Think is going to be very aware of Cam Newton, and how he has played in the past, and what Cam Newton can bring into a football team. Team and I'm with you. This gives the Patriots the edge over the bills. I think there's still a lot of work to be done for the Patriots offensively, and as we kinda talked while they're going to have to get it done in a short amount of time, but if they morph into the AFC, east version of being able to run the ball, like Baltimore I don't know if there's a defense in the division that is equipped to stop them consistently I love. Buffalo is like you know. This crash hates the bills. I There's nothing like seriously bird. I would've loved to have seen the look on Joe. Blow bills fan bills Mafia face when across there in their Grubby Mitts and they look at thirty cell phones. Phone and they're getting an alert on there, and they look at it says Cam Newton to New England. Eight take that next swigging beer and eat that chicken wing instead while it was fun while. It was like this was this was the proverbial. Sunday night had to be for. If you're a fan of one of the other three teams in the division Sunday night had to the proverbial Lucy pull in the football away moment for you. They run into so many times is a fan of one of those teams over the last twenty years. Like I. I love where Buffalo is like I think the defense of cour- like I don't know if there's a team in the league that has a better young defensive core than white buffalo has in. White Tremaine admins Ed Oliver Matt Milano a really really good strong. -fensive core and most of those guys are twenty, five or younger, and on offense like look like the AD. Stefan digs to John Brown Coal Beasley Dawson knocks a good young tight end Devon single terry good. Young running back their offensive line is getting better guys like Mitch. Morris added to the mix and younger guys, already dockings and so. You look at all the whole Josh Allen plays well. That should be a good ten or eleven team, and you know what what's interesting about. This is that division has to play the to West divisions, which are both tough right that means you're playing the chiefs that means you're playing the chargers that means you playing the niners, and the seahawks, and the rams and so. Two teams come out of that division or is it just one it's just there's going to be a fascinating race, but no doubt about it. Cam Newton winding up in New England is not good for the bills, jets or dolphins yeah, the bills in the middle part of their schedule Patriots, Seahawks, cardinals, which is an easy then they play the chargers home. Then it's turn..

Tom Brady speaks out

"Right twenty years now Tom Brady has said just about nothing about anything at all he went out of his way to say as little as possible when there is a microphone in his face yeah for a good chunk of that time he was pretty quiet on social media as well but then he started to reveal more and more on social media then he became a free agent and then you couldn't shut this guy up then he started making as much noise as possible and now that he's out of New England he's practically fighting to get in front of a microphone in the past few days alone Brady is done a players Tribune piece that's like a million words long and now a two hour interview with Howard Stern and if you thought that in appearance on store and meant that he was going to completely unload on bill E. Bobby and the pats for how they treated him go ahead and re think that one wrong assumptions were made about our relationship out how he felt about me I know genuinely how he feels about me now I'm not going to respond to every rumor or assumption that you made other than what his responsibility as coaches to try to get the best player but the team not only in the short term but in the long term as well so what I could control was trying to be the best I can be in both of those situations also so I got to a point where I was I was an older athlete and he sort of plan for the future which is what is responsibility is and I don't fault him for that and that's what he should be you and that's what every coach should be doing not that I would ever coach but you know if I'm ever in a position of authority I would understand that she I would think I really need to before that interview was I like to get his face with a game on that is a remarkable non answer even for TV forty three and I always love that movie includes this now I'm not going to respond to every rumor or assumption this made and then you proceed to not respond to any rumor or assumption that has been made you just blow right on by you don't say or respond to Jack I mean I was a chance for Brady could have really unloaded on tele check but didn't and clearly he doesn't want to for whatever reason maybe it's because he genuinely feels like Belichick is not bad guy here or maybe it's just because he does not want to air it out in public and he didn't really seem to want to get into whether or not he thought that he deserves more respect from Billy and Bobby for what he had done again I can't do his job and you can't do mine right so the fact that you could say what I'd be successful without him the same level of success I don't believe I would have been but I feel the same and vice versa as well the time isn't there some reasonable your part that he didn't make you a patriot for life no absolutely not no because this is a part for me in my life that experience something very different here's the thing I mean it is tough to get a read on Brady when it comes to Pella Scheck and their relationship obviously it's a complicated relationship put Brady is not going to let you inside that relationship not very much so what's the point of putting yourself out there the way he is if you're not going to say anything at all a new C. Mike doing a many media tore is about getting your side of the story out there it's about you controlling the narrative you know as well as promoting yourself and your brand and this new phase your career but exactly what is his side of the story again this guy's not saying anything what it seems to me is it's like he's framing things and he's being respectful about Jack but it's nothing but love and respect right well me ask you this time if it's nothing but love and respect the hell are you doing in Tampa if it's all respect why are you still in New England and what about all the reports in recent months in recent years about how strange that relationship wise so which is it exactly is it a totally respectful parting of the ways or was Brady really bad about the fact that Belichick would not commit to him in the form of a multi year extension that he wanted because Brady says it's the former but there's a lot of smoke there it was the latter all in speaking of smoke there was the revelation the Brady drank any smoked weed in high school there was that but is it really a revelation quote what kept me from smoking a lot of weed obviously in high school you try that and you drink and go to parties but I always felt like I was letting my dad down he went on quote I do have fun in high school with partying and drinking and smoking weed on occasion but as it got later my high school life does became less and less and quote I mean I guess that's something it shows that he has been a cyborg his entire life did do was not going to Baskin Robbins in high school and asking if they add avocado ice cream that when all the other kids were baking in high school Tommy was well baking in high school at least for a minute or two I mean damn what a wild man homeboy really did get loose yeah not really then again if you don't chop it up for two hours with Howard Stern not answer any questions because how it's not having that in well he didn't admit to any strain in his relationship with the hood Tommy did admit to a strain in his relationship with his wife you know because of the long hours the resistance bands the avocado ice cream the avoidance of night shades and probably that guy Alex rubbing all that lotion on his legs the fact that it was all in during the football season then once it ended he was all in on his off the field business is the fact that he was being a pretty selfish dude and Giselle was not having that you know she didn't feel like I was doing my part to the family you know when she felt like I would play football on all season and she would take care of the house and all seven of season one ended I'd be like great let me get into all my other business activities let me get into my football training and she said they're going when you can do things for the house you're gonna take the kids to school and do that right now is a big part of our marriage that I would I had to like check myself because she's like I have goals and dreams too it's just not this you know do these things either so you better start you know taking care of things about how so two years ago as it related to your laptop off for me I had to make a big transition in my life to say I can't do all the things that I wanted to do football like I used to you know I got to take care of things in my family because my family was the situation wasn't great she wasn't satisfied with our marriage damn like I gotta stop wearing my recovery performance jammies like wow I might have to eat a tomato I mean I guess that's something sort of as much as a wife telling a husband you're not keeping up your end of the bargain do better or hit the brakes I mean not that that's some sort of crazy revelation debut I think that Tommy was taking the kids to school and doing the dishes I mean his duties all ball all day except when he's trying to convince everybody that drinking water prevents sunburn of course she was passed and then there was the admission that he did not throw to some guys that he did not trust I would say I don't have any trust that this guy can you know help us to win the game and I can definitely expressed my opinion to say if you put him out there I'm not going to build the wall because I write you know the whole team is trusting me to do what's right by the team so you can't put someone out there that I don't believe in because if I don't believe in and then it'll work was for the team home shut it down let's go home he went there if you can trust you you weren't getting the ball you know again for Brady that sounds like some kind of crazy revelation he just admitted if he didn't trust you he would not feed you damn homeboy is ruthless no actually homeboy is like every other quarterback in the history of the world in that regard they have guys that they trust to run the right route and make a catch and they have guys that they don't trust the guys do they do trust get the most looks the guys that they don't don't it's pretty much out is ready quarterback ever however there is one thing that did come out of the interview that we did not know something regulatory the fact is he's got a nickname I nicknamed the we didn't know a nickname the comes courtesy of Matt castle by the way did you know the back castle never started a game in college sign Jerome Bettis is from Detroit anyway Matt Cassel never starting a game in college is now the second most important fact about Matt Cassel because the most important fact about castle he's he's the one who got lost Tom Brady the following now it comes it comes from a gaming six when Brady suffered what was ultimately diagnosed as a sports hernia go ahead ask because like like one side looks like I would say like an orange and then the other side was normal and I was like something's wrong here thank you thank Dr Brady something's wrong here we just jump in there what's your first and the fact that one testy was normal and the other with the size of an orange art Modell things you want to get that checked out Tom as you might imagine the fellas in a locker room we're not about to let that go my backup time capsule turn pictures of me like with this once you step on one thank you guys

"And Jay Glazer said on the flooding, the Todd girlies knee is a concern for the Rams. Well, I think that's the most interesting, one of those notes, I think most of us are already knew that I've been saying that going back to the last year as soon as I, I heard you had swelling there, I told you guys there's, there's always a reason why there's swelling like in if there's no specific injury. And all of a sudden the knee starts is, well, that's never good sign, it just seemed like that never ends well, and that a minimum, if you'll they're going to have to manage his touches really manage his his knee, and his health for the rest of his career. And at worst. He might not, you know, who knows. You might not play very much longer. So that's very much something to watch their with the LA Rams and Todd Gurley. It's a shame but it is part of the sport of football that will do it, by the way for a Munster Monday. Addition of the Ross Tucker football podcast, still sorting out what our schedule will be for the rest week. I know we have fantasy feast tomorrow.

"They're able to do that. And those type of circumstances, but at the same time like you said, it's so interesting because I get a lot of people that ask me that question, and I'm like, there's never there was never a conversation where Bill said, look, once you roll out, and throw it over his head, he was no one for the way he's going for that time we were gonna over overtime if I hit that ball. Interesting because I've, I've maintained for years. And I thought he told you, you better not complete this past. But I asked you, that, you know, few years ago, and you said now he didn't say that. So that's good. That's good to know so couple more questions for you. So I think most people most people that think of you met, or no, you is it more. Kansas City or is it more? The two thousand eight season in New England after Brady went down. Well, you know, the thing about the two thousand eight season which is sticks out for so many people was, we're coming off the eighteen in one year where we went to the Super Bowl and loss in dramatic fashion with the catch and everything else, that happened, the year before is when Tom through fifty at the NFL record at the time for TD's, Randy moss, all that stuff use the reigning MVP. And so for anytime the MVP and also the expectation for that upcoming season two thousand eight coming up to two thousand seven year was that we're just going to go to the next level from where we were, which is hard to even imagine. And he goes down in the first quarter I game I think that the publicity and the media coverage of just the that one moment was so incredible. And also this, my story of not starting again, since college and everything else, and they're going are they serious that they're putting this kid in here they need? To go out and get somebody. And then the fact that we went on to be eleven and five and easily could have probably one another two games. We lost the the jets and not. And then we lost another tight one somewhere along the way, but we could have been thirteen and three that season, I came out of nowhere, and people were just kind of amazed by the fact that the that system. And what we're able to accomplish that year without Tom just kind of blew people's mind. And so it's obviously a lot of people's memories. That's what they remember. And they couldn't believe it because you when you think of New England Patriots. You think Bill Belichick, you think Tom Brady? And so for me to be able to go in and accomplish what I did that season. A lot of people recognize me more for that than moving on. And, and doing the Kansas City and doing the other things I've done throughout my career. So you are, you know, I'm on I'm on the radio every day. And when people talk about Brady or they want to. Diminish his accomplishments or argue that he's not the best ever. You are the number one reason that they give like anytime. I mean, I can't tell you your name has come up more on the radio and I've been on the radio since gosh. Two thousand seven your name has come up. Most often certainly a bunch of times when you're in Kansas City, but most often, it's when someone is saying that what you didn't two thousand eight in New England is proof that Brady is a system guy. I'm sure you've heard it. How do you respond when you hear that? Or people say that to you. Comical..

"So we knew that there was going to be a large presence, there of scouts, and NFL personnel. And, and I was the only quarterback going to be working out for some of these receivers and everything like that. So I said, you know what I'm gonna go out and I'll go out the pro day. And the funny part is I show up the pro day and I walk in, and I said, is this where the produce happening? They said, yes. But who are you like I'm back castle? They're like, we don't have you. On this list. I was like, oh well I played quarterback here. I'm trying out today. They're like, oh, well you've got about fifteen minutes left on the Wunderlich. So get in there and hurry up and do it. And then you can start your drills. I was like, okay great. And so, but throughout the course of the day, I, I did pretty well and all the drills. And then finally, we got throwing session, and I started to thrown through the ball really well that day. And at the end of that throwing session, all of a sudden it was like a swarm of bees came up. And all these people are like now who are you in what your story and why the why did you played it all? And, you know, lucky lucky for me, I had the excuse of the simple fact that both Carson and Matt Leonard at one Heisman. So in my eyes I was the third best quarterback coming out. You know, at least. And all in all honesty. I said, you know, it just happened that way and the ad stuck around, because I had semester less of school. When the whole of the battle for the position went down. I I, I wanted to finish school at USC and get my degree, and I kinda got stuck in that position of, you know, that I had a choice to make of transferring somewhere else or get my degree in fight through the adversity. And I was able to do it, and then started to get some phone calls. I had a few private workouts, and I was honestly to be be completed with honest with you hope to just get onto a team. Maybe go to NFL you're get some experience and then draft came along and the New England Patriots called in the seventh round. And the rest is history. Unbelievable. So you, you didn't think you're going to get drafted. Did you? Absolutely not. A nobody did know you know, the funny part and the kicker of the whole thing was my, I didn't even have an agent going into this deal I had to call Carson be like a Carson who represents you. And is there any chance you could call him and get him to represent me? It was Dave done. And so he said, no problem. He'll he'll represent you. So the next day, I got a call from. And he said Carson, call me said, you need some representation. So I went down to his office, the second day of the draft. And we're sitting there I'm sitting there with my girlfriend at the time my wife now and I went the other room to talk that Tim started calling about three agency and then all of a sudden, we got a phone call from New England and it was Bill bell check. And he said, Matt, how are you hope you're doing well, we're going to you're going to be the next pick in the NFL draft. Congratulations. You're going to be a New England patriot. And I was like, I can't believe it. I was like, are you kidding me? Are you? Sure you're Bill. No check. And then the next thing I know, I run into the other room. I wife sitting there in front of the television, she's reading a magazine. And I point point to the television. And I was like watch watch watch, and she's like, no, Honey your your name has popped up at all. I said, no, you gotta watch. And then all of a sudden said, ding, ding, ding, Huby, Matt Cassel New England Patriots. And even the commentators were sitting there going who in the heck is Matt castle of USC. We've never heard of this guy. But it was an incredible moment. That is unbelievable. Okay..

"I think I probably had one pitch and a lot of people hit it, but at the same time, just based on the potential of coming out and throwing the ball hard and doing all that. I got drafted by the as the thirty something around, and they offered me a bus ticket out to go to the minors, but I said, you know what I wanna finish my career as a football player. And I went back in played my senior year at the backup position quarterback. I mean quarterback and backed up line hurt. My senior year. Okay. So two questions on that. 'cause I don't know how closely you follow it, but it feels like about fifty division. One quarterbacks transfer every year. Now I mean it's it's unbelievable. Maybe even more to the point. Whereas if there's ever a quarterback competition in college football, these days, the guy that's losing is transferring I mean, that's just kind of the way it is. So, right. You think about that? Like why did you think about it? And why didn't you? Well, I think you know, that's a great point. And also, I think the transfer rules have changed since we were in school because when we were in school, if you transfer doing another division, one college, you actually had to sit out the year before you could actually be eligible to play again, where now you get the one time transfer and what you go to any college that you want. And there's no penalty for transferring. So it's a lot easier for these guys to commit and say, look, I'm not gonna play here. I wanna play. So let me pick the right college. That maybe I think I have a better opportunity to play and they can transfer without penalty and get right back into a program and be eligible to play that next year where when we were in college, it was one of those things where you gotta go sit out or you've got to go, you could go the division one AA or two or something like that. And then you could could play right away, but you're taking a step down. And I don't think it's helping in terms of your career moving forward. So you lose out on the job the liner. He's the quarterback at USC obviously, you're disappointed. Did you think about transferring? You know, whether it's a good question I it went through my mind, absolutely did just with the frustration of not playing I been there for three years. I backed up Carson. I was put in the work and I thought I was ready to play. And we battled it out through the spring. I even had the coach come up to me and say you're doing a great job. You're going to be our guy. They send the other. We'll the next week he comes back and said, look, we're gonna keep the competition, open, just because we think it's healthy and it pushes you guys. And then we get into a week before season. They still had named the starter. We're going back and forth. Splitting reps. And they decided to go with that, which obviously was devastating to me at the time because I felt like I was ready to play. And then the, the conversation was look, if there's any falter by him if he if he's not able to, you know, perform and get it done. You're going in. So just be ready. We'll obviously that they didn't come because Matt did a tremendous job and lead these guys and we won a national championship, and he was one of the best court of college quarterbacks ever play. So with that being said it kinda. Left me on the sidelines in limbo. If what I what I was going to be able to do. Because I knew at that point, at least looking back you go. Gosh, this, this is I'm not going to be able to get to the next level, just based on the simple fact that I've never played. Yeah. That was the next question is did you, did you totally give up? I mean obviously you didn't totally give up any thoughts of playing in the NFL and refresh my memory as to how that even happened like how you even tried to, to make the NFL, even though you hadn't played it a c.

"But when I hit it off the ball, that was the only play I played, but it was, but I got the start so everybody like did you start in buffalo? Like actually, I played one play just happened to be the first play of the game. Yeah. He ended up winning which even better right? So. And then two weeks I think week three during the week three Romo gets hurt and I get traded to Dallas. So basically within that year, I got three at twice in the same year in the craziest situation about that was, my wife will contest to this. She was thirty four weeks pregnant when I got traded to Dallas. So we had we packed everybody up. We got her out of there just in time, so she could still fly went to Dallas was there for two weeks found a house on the by week moved in on a Wednesday had the baby on a Saturday. And I started my first game from Dallas that next weekend. So it was a crazy time. And you, you know, in this profession, nothing shocked me that is unbelievable. I gotta tell you, man. I, I must have just blacked out for twenty fifteen because I've barely remember you being with the bills or the Calvin. No kidding yourself. I blacked out as well my friend. I was sitting there going, what is going on in my life right now. Oh man. We will know. Sorry, go ahead. No, no. You go for it. Now. It's like no just see. It's so funny 'cause, you know, a lot of people just associated with football. And there's so many other things that go on in our lives. We've got the young kids. They start school in buffalo. All of a sudden they just started school there about a week. And it's like guys guess what? We're gonna go move to a new state in a new house and start school somewhere else. So let's go. Of course, the type of things that people never think about. And I never I didn't have kids when I was playing so that was a different situation but Yemen, that's funny. I had the opposite experience. When I was with the bills, by the way, they wanted me to play instead of this other guy, and they told me before the game. They told the other guy that we were going to rotate series. They had him start. We went three and out. He was at left guard, they put me in the second series and kept me in the rest of the game. So that, but that doesn't count as a start for me. Even though we beat that yet, right? We beat the jets I played like sixty eight snaps doesn't count as a start. I would have twenty five stars that I have twenty four because he played the first three plays and the logic that they have. I mean there was no logic that they had to do it that way. It's it's ridiculous. But. Nuts funny. I actually wanna go way back, Matt, and okay, so just to clarify there. So you're open to it. You haven't retired or or anything and you're still open if a team if a team would call, you potentially. Yes, I'm still open to it. You know, it's still, I still feel good my body. Still feels good. And you know, like I said, oh, it's gotta be the right situation. It's one of the things that we've gotta sit down with my wife and I and discuss because we've got five little, a little ones, right around everything else. And you know how that goes and but at the same time I haven't completely committed to the, the fact of saying, okay, I'm done. I'm ready to move on and do all that stuff. And so we'll just see how it goes as we start to get closer to season. Got it. Okay..

"So as much as I love sax and his fired up as I am about sex. I'm just about that fired up as well about today's guests former teammate of mine who's had unbelievable career in the NFL just a crazy story. I think most of, you know, Matt Cassel story of not playing at USC and then being able to come out and have whatever it is a fourteen year NFL career start a bunch of games make a bunch of money, and they've always been some questions that I wanted to. Ask Matt including a game that I played in for New England end the fact that people talk about him as the example of why Tom Brady's assistant guy so thankful to be able to get MAC castle on today's big show. Joe? Always good. When I can get a former teammate on the podcast, especially a guy that had as successful career as Matt castle did Matt. It was great to see a couple of months ago at the broadcast bootcamp really appreciate you coming on the show. Oh, thanks for having me, buddy. Yeah. It was awesome to catch up with you and the success that you've had. And the way that you've grown and everything. And the media world was actually a pretty impressive to see my friend. Well, so let's let's start with where you're at right now because, you know, we're talking here in the off season, you're not on a team right now. Are you still looking to play? Or are you still hoping to play? Are you still keeping keeping it open? Or are you thinking that you're probably done? You know what I'm enjoying time with the family? There's no doubt about that. I haven't closed the door to playing they're still that, you know, in the back of my mind, there's still that it's. And there's still that want and desire to, you know to play. But at the same time, you know, I it would have to be the right situation and at my age. I'm not complaining at all about the fact that I'm not not Eos grinding it out and doing all that. And working out every day, so I'm still staying in shape and doing all that. But at the same time, like I said, it's one of those things that it forces you to look into the future and where you wanna go from here. Six teams, fourteen years, actually, wait a minute. Is it seventeen? I think it's seven teams. I'm trying to hit all thirty two before it's all said and done. Gosh, you know, I always talk about high was a journeyman. I don't look at you as a journeyman because of what you did, especially in Kansas City. But I always, you know, I, I was five team seven years. You are seven. In teams in fourteen years. That's unbelievable. Now it's weird because I'm looking at it doesn't to one year. Did you start games in twenty fifteen for both the bills? And the Cowboys is that real. What's pretty funny about it? So I'm going into the third year with. Excuse me with Minnesota, and I get traded to buffalo. So I'm there all off season. And what's funny, about the buffalo situation as tyrod Taylor myself, you, Jay manual we had a battle QB battle. And they, they decided to go with tyrod Taylor, will the very first play of that season, I lined up at quarterback, and we did like this fake reverse the tyrod and a fake, and then I handed off the ball..
