"Need a little bit more in your garage. He can. no you know actually don't wild. Here's the thing we actually don't. You don't need anything more in your garage. You just have to hope. Someone doesn't come before you leave and steal your hubcaps in your left. Tackle left guard right guard right. Tackle for the super bowl long as that doesn't happen. He'll need those cars wild. That's all you need. I love. I love the take brandon. I think you've got to. I'm gonna convince you about your own take. Here's your own. Take my takeaway. Here is that the titans are going to be unstoppable. When you look at how much run the ball. And i know it's weird looking about running a a wide receiver topic. Say with me. These four teams are all on the bottom. Half of yards per game chaser sixteenth. The cowboys were seventy two bills. Were nine thousand nine hundred and the bucks twenty eight. The titans were second so why we all these teams are very pass. I the chiefs are going to be passed. I the bruce arians gonna be pass. I care of jamison stone into the wrong team or he's got. Tom brady cowboys. Defense is so bad they have to be passed. I and josh allen wants to show off the canon of the arm ryan tannehill is sitting back. There would so many weapons where my biggest take away. Is that the titans. Offense is going to be unstoppable and we should talk about them more. How higher you on the titans offense. Oh i'm extremely high on the titans off. This is the type of offense that i love the play in and i thrived and one. We had a balanced attack. Where you put me back side at the x. And you if it was one and one that was coming to me if they were doubling me or they're rolling coverage than we had favorable matchups in the run game and on the other side. So that's why. I always love this. I can speak to like this when you talk about. You know best. Receiving core tandems. Because i go back to my time in denver. We eddie roy. I had one hundred four catches. He had ninety one. I then i went to miami. I have bryant heartline who had a career year and then we went onto sokoto. Also on. Jeffrey martellus bennett matt forte. The jets you have eric decker so when you have a balanced attack it makes everything easy. But we're not talking about. Who's going to be scarier. Our who's going to have the best season the teams that have the best corpse. Don't always get it done. So when you talk about the titans yes we could easily be looking up at the end of the year saying. Wow this was the most efficient team. This was team that nobody thought was going to get it done. Because it's like oh you only have just two guys know what they're talking about efficiency when you have three four five guys you've got levels. It goes deep depth at the receiver position. The tide imposition. And that's why the number one and also the cowboys is number two receiver. Talk with.

"I don't i. I think he's four a half yards per carrier better. I think that probably depend. i think that's in the range. I probably have in projected right. I'm going to look. I probably haven't project right around four and a half yards per carry. I've got him just over that four point six but you know with barclay if he's the same player that he was and that's obviously the big question but if he's the same player that he was he's the most explosive running back in football he's the most likely to break off a big run and that's obviously going to help as efficient the look of it not. He's probably not more likely to break off a big run. The nick chubb historic terrific. Dan you know. I love chub in that regard but i know you love to see you man right on time and then the final barkley stat was that he averaged twenty percent more targets right around seven point four per game with eli manning and six point one per game with daniel jones. Yeah so this one's really interesting. Well first of all six point one per game is still pretty good right. Yes a ninety six target pace. Yeah i mean. That's that's great. And i've i've said this alive. You look at barclay. In his rookie season. His first eight games he was basically matt forte. He was on one hundred sixteen catches and one hundred and forty two targets. But then and this is all eli manning this year then they had a bye in week nine and then after that you said six point one targets per game under daniel jones after those games the last three games of the regular season. He didn't play in the playoffs. So the west games Six point three targets. So that's yeah. I mean i think barkley is like fifty five catch guy something like maybe a little bit more upside of big difference maker in the passing game. This is not none of this. Was actually to troy you. Even though it's fun troll you it was because i was writing the lead to my bust piece which is out on the site now and saquon. Barkley is the The the feature bust. I guess in my most recent bust column and the reason is in the consensus rankings. Before currently i was using the consensus rankings. Not adp like consensus expert. Rankings for who. I said saying the industry's too high on if he doesn't have twenty eighteen upside but he does have currently not one hundred percent risk possibly playing behind bottom ten offensive line risk possibly playing on a team that scores twenty five touchdowns again risk..

"Talking about the Super Bowl had some heated discussion about Carson Wentz continuing to monitor that will play you What chef? He had to say. In a little bit, Gara follow, said a Knauer. So go to that. There's nothing imminent there, but we said nothing imminent. Yeah, like that's I don't know. Chris and I were talking about this a little bit just a second ago, but this was from what two hours ago from NFL Now on the NFL Network. Careful. Oh said no indications right now, Of course in one straight is eminent. Everybody playing poker as the Eagles wait for an offer that's to their liking while the Bears and Colts explore their options, okay, it seemed like a little bit of Ah head Shawn Kerr follow because he said that Cold. Some bears are interested in other quarterbacks to And by the way, there is bears news. What's what's the Bears now flip has been elevated to quarterbacks coach and passing coordinator. Passing game coordinator so good. It's just more to confuse on who who's calling place? Well. Well as the guys were saying behind the glass during the commercial like, you know, you connecting those dots. Flip was with ee goal. No, I know. And he was there when Carson Wentz had good success. Again. I'm gonna get a lot of things. You get a third round pick. Here you go. He goes. You want it? You want it? You want a third round pick? Like and I have no delusional feelings coursing through my veins that if the Bears keep the 20th overall selection that the brain trust up there is actually going to hit a Just even call it a ground rule double. Okay, let's just call it a double. Let's put the bar where it needs to be based on previous performance. Like there's like no guarantee to me that they're gonna hit with 20. I'm just telling you, I'm not giving up. Give it up a bunch for for a guy needs to be fixed. I'm just that that that's my biggest thing. Yes, that that is my biggest thing. Yesterday. I I tweeted during the game. So Bruce Arians won the Super Bowl. Okay, if you remember the story in 2013 the off season of 2013 before the 2013 NFL season. This is after lovey If you remember the Bears fired Jerry Angelo. They hired Phil Emery. But of course, because they're stupid up top at household there like Fill your GM, but you've got to keep loving. All right. We know he's not your guy Try to live with them for a year. If you don't like him after a year, he could fire him. So they go 10 and six They missed the playoffs after starting seven and one in Emory fires him, So you're mismatched already from the beginning with the coach and the general manager. So then philandering leads the way with the interview process along with George and Tad in the room, and they have the reigning coach of the year. In the interview, which at the time was Bruce Arians. Syrians was the offensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts. But that's when Chuck Pagano was the head coach. The same checkbook. Donahue was just the D. C here for the last couple of years. Propaganda was diagnosed with cancer. He leaves the team and they surprise everybody under the leadership of Bruce Arians. So you got to see an offensive coordinator, be the head coach, something you're not used to seeing, and he ends up winning the coach of the year. So then the Bear's are down to two in the 2013 offseason with Phil memory Ted Phillips and George McCaskey. And it's between Aaron's and Trustman. And you may have heard this or that. And that was my tweet. That was my tweet just to remind her not guess Matt Forte last night tweeted the same thing and he was on the team. Tweet was you know in we could have had Bruce Arians, but we elected due to higher Mark trust like you just laid out too. I mean, here's a guy that had a very story, you know, resume a very impressive revenue. He was the offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers with Ben Roth was Burger and he coached Roethlisberger hard to get the most out of him. He coached lock hard. Get the most art out of him. And a lot of people thought it would have been the perfect marriage between him and cutting but that's neither here nor there. That was the thing. I think a lot of people understand. You know, as I watch Bruce Arians get all my point was We had areas and we had transmit and we chose Trustman when the obvious choice was Arians, and here are some of the responses. Okay? Most of them were favorable. But I get in this and just just wait. All right. This is Twitter, Okay? Why do why do you constantly bring these things up? We all know it. Now. You're just trying to be mean. Please stop with pair's history. I think I'm gonna cry. And then Mark Trust men's daughter like that, and Marc Trustman is daughter, Kate. I didn't know that Mark Trust men's daughter was going to see this. That wasn't my intent. I wasn't trying to despair and she liked it. No, She liked the comment that Williams said. Oh, I got you other people. L an A o Arians is not even a good coach. They won because of Brady and Todd Bowles, and I think that's what trust means. Daughter to the point. She sent me something to the effect. She responded to my tweets, saying. You know, Arians didn't do anything until he had Brady and Nick this one guy Nick, who's called the show before and he kisses the Bears, But all the time tweeted to me settle down. He didn't achieve blank until he had Brady. Do you? First of all, Do you understand what the tweet Woz Tweet Woz. Bruce Arians isn't what is the greatest coach ever. The Tweet Woz we elected to go with Marc Trustman over Bruce Arians. By the way. Bruce Arians is a two time NFL coach. The year two times two times two times two times with two of the worst franchises in the NFL to he's had success. Tampa Historically bad I know he is Brady Arizona. Don't forget the way he changed the landscape in Arizona. I believe they want 10 or more games in his first three years. Um and and went to the post season there in Arizona. He was 49 30 and one right, Right and again, this is into just bring up Well would areas have been could hear what areas have been bad here? This isn't to retry Bruce Air Ian's This is this is why it's important gang. And this is important to follow you like, Oh, check game is why it's important gang. Listen up! Follow the bouncing ball here, everybody. Okay, This is why it's important..

Yeah i think when when you play the game and you know you're watching it you you know if you're not in the business if you haven't worked in business you just kind of look at it through your lens and you're his only and you know when you're surrounded by people that are really good at what they do and they see things differently You realize that You know roster composition is very complex and diverse thing in that. If you're looking at seeing only you know in your through your eyes then you know you're gonna be wrong more often than not and that's why it's a collaborative effort and that's wife jason as a great staff with him and and look you know our sas. Make us look good. I have a bunch of great people here from my cap guys to people personnel department. I mean there's a lot of times it you know we end up with players at you know. Maybe when the whole process started we are on opposite ends of the spectrum. But you know they give you give some and i think that's our job is to and this goes back to coach.

So let's go every five callers 5 10 15 23 50. I've got 10 questions, okay? This is it's the Bears playoff payoff If you will won't look atyou. These are all questions involving bears playoff games from the last 20 years from 2001 through 2018. This is all having to do with their first playoff game of each of those years that they've made the playoffs. So like there won't be a question about Bears Packers NFC Championship game or in the first round of the postseason. So I wanted to give trivia questions for all the first round matchups the Bears have been in over the last couple of decades. So what? How are we going to do this? Is you helping? There is one that I believe I can stump everybody. I think you go. I I don't I don't think I'm going to be very good at this. Oh, no. I think most of these, you'll get easily. I think for you most. There's one that surprised me that I forgot about somebody. And I've made it a question. I think out of the 10 8 are extremely extremely easy If you follow the Bears, If you get your question, right, you go in the hopper. If you're wrong, we hang up on you. And we shame you And you have to go. John Guillemin. Many guys probably wouldn't mind going to see that. So why are you going to be if people want your help? I can. Yeah, I'm just gonna advertise that. How about you go? You do give the hint If they Okay, There you go. I'll give you his.

There's fan. Oh, yeah. All right, so we're going Tol first round matchup between the Bears and Seattle Seahawks. This happened back. I believe this was in 2020 10 season. Here's your question. Okay after causing a minor quake in Seattle the week before the Bears defense held this Seahawks running back to just two yards rushing. I know what's his name, Sean. Alexander That is incorrect. Oh, no, You didn't even go for the clue, was it? That was a good one, though. Like Shaun Alexander was a great Seattle running the film. That would be him. I don't know. Now he did face the Bears. I believe it was in the 06 playoffs. But by 2010. I believe he was gone a while. You know the answer to this question, don't you? Is it Ricky Waters know Marshawn Lynch? Yes. The visit my fucking my club in there after causing a minor quake in Seattle the week before. That's beast Quake! I don't remember the beast Quake You don't That was, Don't you remember where The Richter scale. It was so loud in the Seattle stadium, the Richter scale picked up like a small quake because of the crowd, and Sylvie. I believe there is a former bear who is in and on that play for the Saints defense, right? Wasn't Alex Brown. I believe so wanna play on the play? I believe so. That's good Recall by you, CREss. That's really good. All right. Next caller, while very good for a hater to a guy that cheers against his favorite or his local teams, just Thoma and LaGrange, Tom Huh? Yeah. Hey, what's up?

All right, where we're keeping it to that Bear Seahawks game 2010 season first round This is a real tough one. Why don't I don't I don't know how anyone's going to get this. Unfortunately, you drugged drew the short straw here. Of course, Here's the question well, Matt Forte rushed for a game high 80 yards against the Seahawks. This bear's back up running back, scored a touchdown and added 44 yards on the ground. He is best known for his years in Baltimore and and Minnesota..

"You 50 passes. Maggie is happy that salivating J hoods telling me thrilling. Yeah, he's out, Mitch 54 times. You know, I'm not the one that always buys into the false hope of training camp. I'm pretty After doing this for a long time. I'm pretty skeptical about training camp stories, but I gotta tell you guys Montgomery looked really good. He looked to be in great shape. He was running very well. Just the day before this happened. He had a great run off the left sideline in like a really kind of not totally live drill, but they were coming to get him if they were ableto tackle him. He just burned right past him. Good blocking up front. So what they're going to do is I think you've got to re cone. You've got Cordell Patterson. I have Ryan all making the team on my 53 Man roster. He's a little bit of an everything type guy. He can also play fullback. He's a really good blocker. You know, they prioritize someone being in there and blocking on third down. Patterson does not block has never showed a willingness to black cone, Khun Block, but dolls a lot bigger. Now Montgomery's out for a couple of weeks. I think you gotta have Ah, more versatile, third running back, So I would say, Captain Jonathan that they probably go with it like that. Cause I don't think Montgomery is going to be Too long. But like you said, cap, starting off groin injuries, they linger. If you don't get it healthy, he's gonna pull it again. It's going to be a problem all year and even though he avoided a knee injury That was devastating the other. That's why that was a big story guys because they were counting on the gun Marie for such a sizeable role this year and they still might be counting on him. But when you're growing goes like that early before, see the season even starts. Usually it means it's going to be a long year for that player, my friend I would be remiss if we didn't ask you. Ah, about Brian Urlacher, someone who you covered from the beginning to the end of his career and through the Hall of Fame. Career. I'm wondering your thoughts as his name trended as he as he liked something on instagram that I think it took a lot of people off guard. And just some of his thoughts of the last 24 to 48 hours. What comes to your mind? We initially saw these stories regarding Urlacher. Well, I think like a lot of the players that played with him in that era. I thought yesterday that maybe he wasn't the one operating his account. I think everyone that was around Brian Urlacher and I'm not saying that I have the relationship within that I have with a lot of the guys from that era, but I covered him everyday Psalm in the locker room every day. He was a great teammate. He was loved by everybody matter who you were. What color your skin Woz, your ethnicity. He was one of those guys that everyone loved and they rallied around and he treated those people extremely well. And then you see some of the stuff from yesterday and even the weeks leading up to it. I think there was a genuine wonderment. Is he really posting this stuff? And I think he was posting it, And I think there's been a lot of disappointment. I don't Matt Forte went public. Believe me when I tell you guys that Matt Forte is not the only bear from that era that played with Urlacher. I was asking a lot of questions and talking about this, and they're just like Was this him all along? I mean, is this Who he really is. And you know, whenever you talk about this stuff you always have. You know, John, you know this. The Free Street free speech brigade comes out right? Well, he could say what everyone's it's a free country. Absolutely. It's a free country. He could say whatever he wants. No one's hauling Brian Urlacher off to jail about what we liked on Instagram. But there are gonna be consequences and repercussions..

Blocked me a few years ago on Twitter because they had the audacity to ask him a tough question that he didn't like. And we got sideways and next thing I know you aren't blocked from following Matt Forte 22. I have a burner that nobody knows what it is. So the two people that have blocked me that I know of them. Sure, there's other people out there and I could give a flying brick. Matt Forte and Brad Biggs. So I opened the notifications on both of them on my burner account. So all their tweets pop right up on the face of my phone, actually see them before. The ones on my normal account. I didn't know you had a burner count. Now I have one as well. I don't know that We got that in common Cap hood working with a couple of Kevin Durant's here. What the hell is going on? I don't want to sidetrack us because this is a serious conversation. But we need to get back to the fact that you both have admitted to having burner account minus capture Hood 100%, man. And I got to go from whoever devil has been the most supportive of cap and everything he's done on Twitter I got this is some good sleuthing. We have to do, Danny and figure out Caps burner.

It's just you know this team could be really bad as well and you have new coach new coordinator new quarterbacks, which I don't think so bad thing. but McCaffrey has shown the ability to run through tackles. Run through run through. One of the middle. you know and I think that's been the knock on him. I I'm writing the story for our second edition. The magazine McCaffrey and You know we spoke to drum bettas McCaffrey himself Emmett Smith. You know, ask a lot of running backs. Creed, you know retired greats in current ones, and they all use glow about what McCaffrey does a player and I think the one thing that you know you go back to his. He told us on on CBS sports do that. He's an offensive weapon and That's kind of what he is. He's just not a traditional running back. You know his. His argument was. How many years how many receivers get a thousand yards you know in. That position I. Just think you build the offense around him He's still young, enough talented enough that he's one of those players at a at a position that you know the stars may be you know generating a little bit from where they were, but he's the one of the best of the best. He sure is a will be the consensus number one. If you don't take them number one. You are gutsy. Let's just say that well. In other formats not QBC reflects case for the quarterback daughter I certainly. Yeah and even even in non PR. It's going to be closer, but hundred catches saquon Barkley since the first I broke down his catches since the first eight games of his career first eight games of his career, he was. catch. One hundred something your son something. He was on face to basically break Matt Forte's record Chris McCaffrey's record. But then they had a bye in week nine, and then since then it's been a year and a half or Barclays been like a sixty to catch running back for sixteen games. That's kind of what I'm expecting and McCaffrey is going to have forty more catches in it, so just that's. So hard to ignore and is GONNA put a difference in their auction values for sure.

"Two sets of them and the last set is not teammates <hes> so i'm going to list replay give three players. We're going to rank them and see how you feel about them. Obviously those listening to play at home until if you disagree but the first group the first i group is a very very often discussed group and that group is damian. Williams darwin thompson the rookie and a guy who is just into the mix leshan mccoy. How do you rank these three gentlemen. Josh i'd i'd put mccoy at the end at in third place like i mean i think he's better in carlos hyde but he's in that same boat like i think of two thousand seventeen matt forte win. He went to the jets and he had a few games where they just acted like they did not care that matt forte was thirty seven and they just fed him the ball and he was like he had at three or four rb one weeks but on the season he was our before and i think that's what the sean mccoy's going to be. You know oh tha- that's that's fine. I'm looking forward to those big sean mccoy weeks you know i like michelle. Leon that it just doesn't it's very very unlikely in my opinion that he's going to go there and suddenly be better. Yeah i agree with you. It's hard to rank higher than that. I know he came. He's played for this coach so he knows this coach. She's done this system so we can't necessarily say like he has no. What's is going on like he's news the team we can in a sense but like he has a little more than qualified as far as you know familiarity but like you said you feel like we're kind of phasing <music> out the old guard here you feel like he's kinda part of that group and you know everyone knows i'm not crazy about damian williams so he's kind of just been the guy hi who is gifted this team right now like i just feel like if cream hunt was still there. We wouldn't be talking about these guys. Damian williams would be irrelevant and so he was just kind of handed this his team. I'm not crazy about them but i know he does. Some things well <hes>. I'm gonna put samba the end with you also and i can't put the rookie darwin thompson above daime williams at this point. I don't believe but as far as like how a management teams. I definitely have all darwin no damian or less on <hes>. That's how i projected going forward like out but i don't want to just say the rookie right now because obviously it's not realistic carries wise and stuff. I don't feel like he's going to get that chance to do it right now. But <hes> i would agree with you right now. We're talking week one or the beginning season go to say damian for sure one <hes> lasalle mcquaid third. I think that might bothersome people. I feel like some people will definitely feel like he's the rookie but you know i'm gonna go with you and with the rookie ahead of them just because i just like for what man at this point for what phil we weeks one through four probably is a better bet than there but i don't think that he has the upside yeah i don't either i mean he played like fourteen games last season and in fantasy points per game aim he was forty two like in buffalo to be in buffalo successful there i mean the team has changed but his his the entrenched number one like i feel like if he was vintage la shawn mccoy we would have gotten better than that the top twenty four bag right yes fair..

"Brown if he's cut would you want your team to maybe take a chance on the ball the tile personality will be a great player but that looks to be on site which by the way Jon Gruden was asked me about twenty minutes ago if you had a comment he said no we'll give you that will actually give you a within that serves some point later on today so we'll try to get some resolution with the stuff maybe yeah a five ounce meant later today official nothing it big it was about that house an official announcement well we have the official start of the season of course the great rivalry between the Packers and the Chicago Bears and we're joined by general spent all twelve years of his career in Chicago terrific linebacker seven pro bowls made it all pro team back in two thousand five as well and talk about lance Briggs is with us here on tiki and tear the CBS sports radio lance what's happening buddy ready for some football the what many good. and I'm this is the best time of year because it is yeah you're right brings it all out that's right that's right I think you made the Pro you're all pro the year I made mile pro in oh five but you were you were coming in I was going out I was I was at all yet at that point yeah sure did I sure did I was me and Brian we get into a job yeah it's pretty cool good deal yeah exactly so it is you look at the beginning of the season and look what this all all season has been. interesting for the bears you lose your office of course our defense of court as you say a big Fangio goes out to Denver but the talent is just so amazing are you expecting the same level of success as last year this season even though things have changed just a little bit no I think yeah I expect the I think more I spent more takeaways like quick one question. on the quarterback I could bigger things from this from this group because another capable we all of the case they're going to they should. beeping faster than they did last year they should expect things quicker than they did last year and you know for the only the only question mark you know we were a great coach my job Donna with his you know that if it ain't broke don't try to fix it you know so it really is just you know keep the ship. you should study a let your let your dog the but those guys go out there and do what they've been doing yeah in the main one of those lands as we all know is is Khalil Mack in I mean we've seen talented linebackers over the course of the the NFL a guy who could do it like he does it from the edge and then I was even the linebacker position as well how special of a player is here we are we is there hyperbole around him received actually that good. now you. that you know a lot you know I watch every week you are watching he killed every week he's he's one of those guys. you've got the the bad you understand exactly what he wanted out of the you know the band you can come off Baltimore you'll see a big load off the wall you know but he just knows exactly how to work the guys from from inside right to speak to is know how to get the ball out he's a fallen where he's one of those guys that you use when you try to go around try to find a reason not to hi the high for the top dollar you can't find it you can change I like that expression without a lens brings former lie back for the bears now early on yet success you guys got to the Superbowl when you were playing you had at least four double digit win season maybe fifty one in there but at least for and before last year's renaissance lance and I remember last summer we were told to somebody who was by cool is that from Chicago from the score Lawrence homes we had on the show that we do not for you probably know that a large homes and we're doing the preview lance right and he's like I look he cares about the bears me take you like what. the bears it seems like the energy for the bears I know didn't die would dramatically dissipated so now that it's back bears fans is it's Super Bowl or bust or they still somewhat realistic that it could be an incremental step forward without getting to the Superbowl where's the bear fan right now well let me tell you you know I'm at the I'm at the courtyard here and just a few minutes ago we got on the phone so you will rally around the district to field everybody's out it's a Thursday thought my question is you know who's working. your honor you know yeah but but but but everybody knows about cited everybody they know this team right here's a ball of reaching lord they're capable of reaching the. Miami this year so that I think that the expectation I think that between the two year note we have the next one check yeah you know let you just mentioned you bet your down there the courtyard by Marriott with Matt forte who is a great runner in in in his own right when he was with but with the Chicago Bears tells about the Superbowl sleepover contest that you guys have going on. pretty cool you know it's an opportunity for for you know the winners. they're going to run out of one of the suite and the people of Xebel stadium and I'm gonna have the winners are going to sleep over and they'll be the first ones to wake up in the stadium well Sunday and I'll be quite experience yeah right makes is a kick in there lots of food. I was still coach maybe although right sleeve all right either because that would recruits. that actually is very cool very cool print very cool and this is what I say what idea let me ask you this you know this is walls I yeah you know you want to walk by the kicker in the locker room and you really don't want to have to worry about much just do do your hundred ninety pounds we're. just do you freaking job kicked the ball straight on kick off don't let a return it. oh boy I mean when there's a situation like the bears had a year ago and it's really bled in this entire summer all I mean is this going to derail the season because the kicker still mess. not you know I like I like the situation now go you know there's a lot of. what a long resume on there right now you know that's not what are you not walking in the sand all these guys. kicker or this or that. you know right here with with with us today. and that kind of the the formula that started for radical you know run a man we didn't know what we're gonna do we're like I've got a guy coming to go to court gonna be good updates photos probably came in and he started his is finished during a. and one of the most accurate. it is resolved.

Maybe maybe he's getting you to talk about the piece was good. I've, I've also said that most what he does is garbage. I mean I've, I've watched and I've looked at it, and forget, what support it was. They tried to call it a sport. I know what it was. This guy goes over to England and it's, it's Cambridge versus Oxford wine tasting wine tasting. It was a sport is a sport. And all this is what, what do you wasting my time for really?

You needed to you need to watch the piece. I watched it all inside. Your. To change. First of all remote controls in my hand lazy only thing that was in your hand. You're right and a Cup of coffee. Also. Wow. How many hands do you have to aptly? Critique on watch. I wouldn't say that movie to hit no was appointed. I had to watch complained about peace interesting. It was interesting because of the one individual is the program. They lost me the minute the minute they tried to tell me it was a sport. Yeah. That's ludicrous.

What a world region, the whole sip and not even swallow it. They spit in the bucket. And they know we're we're what who who makes it? Great like Hungary. I mean it's can I ask you a question was funny? Ten ten seven too late on a Tuesday night to actually open up a bottle of wine and glass. You open it at ten us did last night. Just had one was a big one, but I just come home from my daughter's high school soccer game, one of the big one. Right. And I, I was like, oh boy, I, I'm going to go to bed like fifteen minutes, but I kind of have a taste for one camp. It's okay, how many have left in June? Knows you might as well. Do know wines yourself. I don't what you guys think of twenty six hundred fifty on the bears list. A lot of big names. I see boards. I was stupid Amita think that they may have overlooked him. He was great. He was, but and stupid of me, not recognize it, both Don Pearson. And Dan Pompei have a true for guys like Mark board. Soapy pompey. Okay. Pompey but I'm glad to see that they did recognize him. I thought he was someone to make kind of slip the crap. You guys had a great conversation yesterday about fourteen Anderson, like, is this conversation? You could have won their best year. Right. That was a great debate and feel like if I want the best year in the most explosive back, I'm taking Neil Anderson. I think guys career Matt forte should be head of Neil Anderson. Matt forte was very consistent and very good for a long period of time for the bears, and he did a lot of great things. But in the one year I got an. Neil Anderson in, like eighty seven eighty eight whatever it was, was explosive. Good point. Yeah. He was he was a more explosive runner. That's a better receiver. I mean but Neal was great. Now made a couple of pro bowls as a special teamer I early in his career. That's what I'm. There was a complaint. Stay healthy Greco put him on his worst all time bears. That's not good player news. Healthy, I think sitting hamstring problem name is traced Armstrong, not on the list, the late night, like ninety eight that's five eighty five bears will make this list when it's all said and done all except LA. Mike is there. I mean was less Frazier on the list, he'll be top twenty five top twenty five. Absolutely. I didn't realize I only know really as you know, an NFL coach and a wonderful guy in an ex player I never saw him play. So like Jean grecko says he's by far the best cornerback this organization's ever say. Yes. Out of this, and his infant Mike, going to be the only one from eighty five. I the defense why every hour, William Perry Willie Gault will. That's true. Oh more. Okay. William at okay he hasn't been on. So it's going to be a top twenty one and Peres will be top twenty five five. He was in the middle guy in the oh, come on now. He he's top one hundred. But he's top one hundred every top one hundred and if he's not on the list. Yeah, I don't I would not have put them in the top twenty five. I wouldn't I'm gonna look him up. Now, let me see what my guess is twenty two twenty from the eighty five team are going to make it look. I'll tell you this. I played with William to he was a fantastic player. I thought Charles Tillman was a better overall player than Williams. Carrie is probably better overall player me to Williams career was, you know, he played nine years here in Chicago Williams. So it's a little bit more than I thought he did twenty and a half say, twenty eight and a half sex. Yeah. I mean for good player, don't get me wrong but a tapped one five bear. I didn't think he made top twenty either. Unless we missed them. I don't think he's been on the list yet. Has he goes, I'm almost positive? No refrigerator Perry was on the list you would like does he get the bonus points because fridge Bainian football maybe could be. But is the is the guy with the same resume who didn't carry the football take the nation by storm. Is he really top twenty five? Let's let's book. Let's put pup Pearson Pompey for tomorrow. He I think Pearson was on earlier this week. We can talk to Dan. Now, don't get me wrong when especially when he was early before his knees. And everything started giving him trouble was a fantastic player. Great athlete. You know, obviously, you know, everyone knew he could dunk, a basketball earlier in his career, apple the table to the other thing he would do the most popular on Gilbert, too, right? He couldn't play though. Certainly one of the most popular bears. He was he was fantastic on all. I'm saying is top twenty five seems a bit a bit high better than Lance bricks. Yes. To give you a bunch of names. Fencing Tillman crew tes I is going to be twenty two. You mean Owen crew? If you're telling me, you know, who, who was, I bring up in the meeting that he's better than I don't know. I just think that if you want in crew tes on your football team to set a culture on, you know, you were asking the question, would you rather have all in cruiser Devin Hester, or who should be high? No not. You me. I'm Devin Hester fan crew drafting you could have this guy set a culture middle of offensive line with toughness, Olin crews, or you want, Devin Hester, who's played twelve hundred plays a year, I'd want all no question every time you it was going to be in the top twenty five and I'm playing against Dolan. Oh, yeah, yeah. I'm so guy his size. It's like J one thousand nine hundred now I thought be being the top fifteen to be honest. Strong.

"He was actually he wanted to do that today. I don't know why I felt bad for a second until he was really, no, no, no, no. He wants to do that. We've got a long list of mistakes at the Super Bowl by paulie. He said to clay Matthews. I'm gonna block you and clay Matthews. Hit him in the chest. It gave him that stab. Oh, yeah. You tried to tackle Adrian Peterson and Matt forte. They smacked him in the head. I'm impressed. Yeah. Never smart. Sees get degrees. This is what I know. I'm gonna shave them actually, really. Yeah. You aren't good? No. It's not. No. It's not the gym. All right. So final fifteen for the whole thing. Yup. Now, I do wanna point this out only because people think that we known each other forever. I'd never I don't think I have made before until recently. And I just said look, I know what I saw when I saw you play. And I thought you were there was something different. There was athletic system. You're a great player. Now, the window that you played is probably what if it does keep you out of the hall of fame would be the long, you know, the amount of time you thrive, but when you played when you played it at a high level of near healthy. There was no other tackle that. I saw that was better than you. And I'm talking about Anthony moon news. I'm talking about the greats of the game. So I don't I don't know you. But I know when I see a hall of Famer, and I look at you the way I do Terrell Davis. Now, he wants Super Bowls and want an MVP rush for two thousand yards. But. There's no real number. I can attach to a tackle to say. Well, but he did this. And I hope you get into the hall of fame. I hope you get the call, and they tell you on Saturday that you're in the hall of fame. Well, I appreciate it. I mean, it's the it's one of those things that you're not playing anymore. There's nothing I can do about it. But it's the ultimate individual honor. And my career is what it was. I got hurt much like throw Davis. Did I think when he got in that mental lot? Now, I'm that how long before you mentioned me in your hall of fame speech like how because I usually show up a little later probably. And I think how long do I have. I mean, they say too long. I'm not going to be like the forty five minute where you go on your whole life story. So let's go fifteen minutes. Then when do I get mentioned eleven and a half to twelve I like it where it's emotional, emotional tears. Now, you cry mentioning me or your family? Well, I think it's a carry over from my mom and dad to wife and kids, then you the tears are continuing. Guitar time. And if you just say, Dan, we did it like then I'm fine with that too. Like, it doesn't have to be a big day. Dan, Patrick, it's how about some like damn without you. I'm not sure this day is real. Yeah. I work on that. I'm not I'm not joking. I like I'd expect like a damn showdown. Well, the good news is there's a local guy in Dan as well. Who asked me the same thing. So I think I can kill two birds with one stone just say, Dan in both of you will think that okay, that's part of the deal. I'm fine with that. Tony is the lead analyst for Thursday night football, unless would one and you're going to be on the sidelines for the Super Bowl. Yes. Are you nervous? No, okay. Not yet. I've never Saturday. That's the only thing. I'm never okay. And explain this to the audience. This is I I think it's unfair to you. I really do know I do for the fifteen finalists. Yeah. 'cause you're all in a room. No. So actually, we're all at hotel they fly everybody, and I'm here all week because of the radio with Westwood One. But everyone else in your Thursday, you do an event Thursday night. There's a luncheon Friday.

"We're moving on, Dan, our loss key. I say it every week one of my favorite guests to talk to from ESPN former NFL quarterback he joins us now. Daniel good morning. How are you? I'm doing awesome, man. How are you? How are you? Everybody's disappointed here. They aren't stunned that it was Cody parkey that it came down and his leg, and he didn't get it done just bummed because they had a good football team that should have gone farther. Great football team. You know, I was telling people this week that I do, and I remember maybe two or three weeks ago, you brought up that exact conversation of okay, you're looking at this team and doesn't have a ton of weaknesses. Are you concerned with parking and whatnot justifiable question? I think we both kinda made the agreement. Like, yeah, you you are away. But you are where you are with and the way he responded after that rough rough game again, Troy kinda gave you some hope and he was three per three. Obviously last weekend. You know, there's there's a lot of storylines tied to that. That that kick that that play alone where the timeout was. How much does the tip fact it I could say this as a quarterback when I dropped back in the ball and somebody gets a finger on it that ball one hundred out of one hundred times is not going to go where I want us to go a hundred it's not gonna look the way I want to it's not going to go the way I wanted to go. And I do think that does matter for the kids, I do think that we have to pay attention to that. But it's just a it's a bummer way for a really good football team. Ender season. And also, and I don't want to understate this really young quarterback on the verge of having a huge huge moment in terms of looking at this team now and where they go next. They don't have a first round pick. They don't have a second round pick. What do you think they need to add Bobby Massey's, a free agent at right tackle, they've got Adri name. Oh embrace Callahan. As free agents in the defensive backfield. I think they need to upgrade the running back spot. Other people don't where are you on what they need to do going forward to improve the roster. I would absolutely Callahan back on my football team strictly because and you hear me say this all the time you offenses that are going to threaten you in the NFL you're going to be multiple. They're going to have a bunch of different guys that they can get through it. No longer. Can you have one or two good corners? You better really have three or four and in Callahan has proven that he's a very viable asset in that nickel area. So I bring him back on my football team upgrade the running back position. What what would you upgrade to though that? We like Cohen is out of the equation. You know, if we're talking about Howard. What what would you upgrade to in regards to is he going to be more of a traditional? We can rely on you first and second down back because Cohen has the he's not a gimmick player, but he has his specialized skill Howard's a little bit more the bruiser big backs. Like that would be the question is can I go out there and get somebody that's cheap. That is a different and upgraded version of him. I don't believe so certainly not gonna use it draft pick on it. You know, take a running back at in the third round. If there's somebody sitting there, and you're like, whoa. You wouldn't do that? Well, no, absolutely. I would if there's a guy that we as a as a front office have deemed to be a first round talent or second round talented. He's there at my third pick the thing about the bears is when you're we. And I mentioned this two minutes ago. Didn't have a lot of flaws right right now. Because of the team they built you're looking at in that in net round, you're looking at who's the best player, you're not necessarily looking at holes. Who's the best player? That's going to impact our team the most. And so, yeah, there's a back there that you feel is going to be an upgrade and we valued him at X. We can't pass that up because we had him at the the eighteenth best player on our board. We're picking at you know, that eighty four picks like, yeah. Then you're certainly are gonna have to put hard hard thought into it. But if there's a guy that is similar, I don't think you take him. Just because I don't think you take him just because they don't have a lot of holes on their football team. This is a roster that relatively solid I to be honest with you. I'm looking at can I add more weapons on the outside. I want as many guys to throw the football too. I can't if I can here's the question. If there's a receiver that I value as a second round receiver in that third round spot. And there's a back that I value as a second round back in that third round spot giving the receiver all day long. Okay. You asked me. What would I want to upgrade at running back? I'm not the biggest Jordan Howard guy. I'm not he's okay. He's a guy is not quick enough. He does catch the football. Very well. He's a good blocker. He's a good guy. I want somebody with subspecies and some ability Matt forte that they got the second round many years ago that kinda guy Kareem hunt without the baggage that kinda guy. Yeah. I I do believe that. I mean, I get that question. You have to ask yourself is if I get this guy, and we like him who am I taking touches away from touches that I'm gonna afford. This guy are gonna be this. If they're going to be x taking touches out Colin tan during my take it touches outta Allen Robinson, Dan. And so that's the question. You have to ask yourself. And then if you're saying, okay, we yes, we're gonna take you know, I I like football and the math lot if we're gonna take touches away. From those guys is the value that we're going to take him in that third round worth. It is it worth it is he going to impact our team touch wise, and the the reps that those guys are gonna lose is that value could be added really help us is that gonna take us to you know, wherever the Super Bowl is next year. Is that the guy or part of that? Now, you know me I'm an offensive guard like the most. Often. So I understand it. But you do have to ask yourself. Are you going to be taking touches away from a guy who I believe you need to continue to run your offense through and Cullen? Yeah. I understand where you're coming from there. I wanna make sure the the offensive line is upgraded. Bobby Massey's, a free agent. So either bring him back or figure out what you're gonna do it. Right. Tackle that's far more important. And I'll be honest with you, Dan. I there is zero chance if I was in charge that Cody parkey would be back here zero. You can't you can't you just can't. And and you know, I've been outspoken about this. You know, you feel terrible for the kid. I've been in college. I've been in that situation where literally last play the game. I lost the game for my team. And you feel terrible for everybody involved. He handles it like a pro incredibly classy everyone's understanding of that. But as a as a bears fan, you you you should want nothing. Nothing for him to do with your football team moving forward net has nothing to do with him as a as a person. But as a fan, you if you. Fast forward, and you've taken you work hard. And you earn your money. Invest your time and your money and your feeling your motion into this football team. And you're in that very similar situation next year. I don't I don't know. I don't know you can do that as an organization to your fans, they show, you know, the right decision. And I can't imagine. This is not what happens is they move on both for the team. And for Cody parkey, Cody parkey needs a new home as well. Because of how things kind of transpired. But you know, I I'm up the belief that the fingertips does does matter, and I also, and I know you came onto the show and kind of reference this you've got to be honest about the lack of the the defense closing the game out. You I send it out in a tweet. One Sacco game is not good enough for them to go on the field with four forty eight or something at home against the backup quarterback. I know, you know, obviously has incredible story, but as a backup quarterback, I mean, you go back to August. When the trade was made for Khalil Mack in that specific drive was the reason why that trade was made. That's the exact reason why that trade was made because he's a close. And it didn't happen. So I I don't want to you know, me. I'm not running from that. Yeah. I couldn't agree with you more that look the defense had a great year. It was a fun season twelve wins, blah, blah, blah, you first of all the punter can't kick a thirty six yard punt in the most crucial punt of the season. It just can't happen. It did. But now somebody's got to make a splash play. Whether that's Khalil Mack. Whether that's Akeem Hicks Leonard Floyd, Danny trevathan, whoever the heck it is. They can't let them drive it all the way down and on third nine Nick foles finds out John Jeffrey to the two yard line. Can't happen. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. And I I keep saying I told that to people this week like when we this defense from people who are in Olympics and stats people had parts of it that were statistically or historically. Great. Like there were parts of this defense. That were historically great. That's why and for them to have their moment. Because I'm I'm being honest with you like I have all year. There's might not be some people who like it. But if you panda all the fans throughout the season. How what's our biggest concern? Everybody said Mitchell Trubisky, everyone said in that moment can Mitchell Trubisky handle it. And I don't want to not talk about the fact that Mitchell Trubisky in the fourth quarter was stones those throws. He made on that final drive until if you can watch the all twenty two angle from the back of the throat or Robinson. It's ridiculous that he attempts it like that. He actually has the stones to throw it. So we get like that that is such a huge moment. But the fact that the defense trotted out there everybody put have put their money down and said I trust our defense. Everybody would have said we're good start booking flights for next week. We've got the best. Defense in the NFL. And statistically a historically. Great defense. I'm gonna take them, and they didn't close and as much as we can say man, Cody parkey make that kick. We also have to be honest about that moment that that drive and hold everybody accountable. And I think that's something to not kinda shy away from. I also believe that this is a team that's really hopeful for the future and very bright and Trubisky. These huge reason why. We're talking with Dan are lost joins me in every Wednesday here. So as we look forward now in the NFL playoffs bears are going to sit at home. Where are you on the matchups that we're gonna see Philadelphia and New Orleans we could start there, and then Dallas and the Rams in the AFC? Yeah. So, you know, we'll talk about feeling was because obviously that's the team that you know, the bear's loss due to your right now is is really remarkable what they're doing. I mean, the fact that you're looking at an offense that has totally kind of. Got into a comfort zone when it comes to every facet of the game..
