"Be thinking? Other than I got my hair in a man bun and I gotta catch this football and punt it, That's it. That's all I have to do. And then you go and then you run around. And then all of a sudden chiefs takeover like those are the little things. We can talk about marquee players. We can talk about strategy. We can talk about a variety of things. Sometimes it comes down to just one moment. Where somebody does something stupid. And that decides the game. You had a moment with the Patriots against the Dolphins a late fumble. All you have to do a is not fumble. Doesn't matter. Okay? I'm going after more yards there. No. You just cost your team to victory. The Browns punter cost his team a victory. One moment, everybody else you know, we we look at the the entirety of a game and you go. Oh, there's so many moments and then it comes down to that. Somebody does something Somebody doesn't do something. And that's why it's so hard to handicap that because I thought New England was going to win that game. I thought Matt Jones looked Good. I thought he had training wheels on Uh, yeah. You gotta score touchdowns in the NFL. You can't just rely on field goals and they allowed Miami to stay in the game. Miami played some good defense in the Red zone. Hold on to the football. That's it. That's all you gotta do. You kick a field goal. You win the game. The punter. Disappointed. Now there's still a chance that Mahomes will win it, but I like my odds a whole lot better when they're in their territory, as opposed.
Newton, Jones Star at QB for Patriots in 35-0 Rout of Eagles
"Night's preseason action in the nfl it was an absolute blowout a trouncing. The patriots had a quarterback controversy. But everybody looks good against the eagles. Campbell good mack jones. Look good jalen. Rose what you think about cams performance. I i think if you really you didn't lead a game saying fly. Eagles fly by nothing you saw in that game. I'm happy for cam newton. We talked about the patriots improving their roster this off season we wondered how he will look as a passer. I talked about them primarily being a rush t. They look like a balanced team now again. It's the preseason never overreacted at as alliance fan. I learned first hand. Because i saw rt go undefeated in the preseason go winless that same season. So i'm not going to overreact per se but i was happy for camp. Did he left last night's game with the ability to talk trash to the team. That was getting on him about being. Check down guy practice. I mean can't exactly go deep in this game but he didn't have to and cam looks good but you know who else look. Good matt jones like they seem to. They always say like two quarterbacks. You don't have one. I think the thing is just have two quarterbacks like they might just have to good quarterbacks one rookie they're going to develop and then one season better who's going to be that week one starter this to me after watching last night again. I don't wanna take too much. Wavering preseason game but after watching last night this is cam newton's job until it's not and i think cam newton is successful in. This team wins that he will continue to be the starting quarterback for this team however because the other way i can see mack jones playing this
Mac Jones Gaining Momentum as Eventual Patriots Starting QB
"Do you think about the pat- patriots quarterback battle. And do you think it's possible mack. Jones starts week one. Oh there's no question it's possible. I mean i think if he if he beats him out if he's clearly the better option and camp. Then that's bill belichick will do i. I don't think there's any doubt of it now. He's been saying cam newton starter since draft night When they when they took mack jones. But i think he you know obviously he wants to rookie to have to earn it. They put number fifty on him Mini camps so that that's a sign of that. But yeah i mean i think it's it's entirely possible and i think what you saw was cam newton. You know yeah. I think he's frustrated with the questions. I think he was coming off by. Most accounts was was kind of a tough practice for him And he probably. Here's the steps. I think you know everybody who's been around. Eighteen says that matt jones is closing gap so I'm it's likely the cam. Newton feels the same way and that's probably making him feel some pressure.

"What are you doing once. You're that is kind of change. I initially like a lot of guys. They're young you go out. You're all these college camps around the country and it's a chance to network and all of that so i started out. Doing that was still an undergrad at university of kentucky and lsu and doing all these places during the college thing. And then i kind of started branching out into other other people who run camps and through that kind of the start running by own the summarize under my name in different places kind of the midwest and southeast and then other people not on drag me at bringing their camp the biggest profile when the is called crossroads of the invitationals a witches are kansas Started working at that. When i was young and now i help vita skill instruction there. It's this year. It'll be the don show will say basketball so obviously name just draws a lot of people you know last year. We had a lot of apple kids. They can't really exploded last year. So we're really excited about what's going on this year general. I think like are doing thirteen different events this year in ten different states in all that craziness starts next week being Just kinda get addicted to it a little bit. i everyone who knows you all like in the summers. I'm out out. That's what i do and it's a little bit better now or i could fly when you know when you're first starting out and you're driving everywhere it sleep in your car and you know. Count all your penny's and all that it's a little bit better to have a situation now where it's travels a more Mason a little bit more durable at times but in the end like getting to every day. And i never want to see you know so much of the country that i would ever seen if i had been coaching. And i don't wanna hear about all these camps doing. I mean so. You're starting on june eleven north carolina. Kansas kentucky ohio indiana. I might have missed one in there because there's long list it's trying to figure out which one was which but me tell us have you have you done camps in these places before coming back you kind of build new relationships to do them like how all these things happening in and you have a pack coming up for me. It's kind of changed. The dynamic of it out at pro experience is open to north for me. So there's a lot of these kinds of Combine bad situations guys trying to play overseas of know some different agencies us in such that. Put on these events. So like i game during his at western salem Coach is the is the event named james blackburn. His agent close with who puts it on a disk really good job at. He does a good job of identifying talent. Eating contract change people's lives though going from that and then i'm going to my hometown tiny bryan ohio. And i'm doing. I have a little kids camp. There that are third fourth and fifth graders. Oh kind of the full spectrum. And i enjoy all of them and i think if i just did stuff with young kids probably go crazy if i just did stuff with programs. I'd probably go crazy. So i think doing a picture of everything would i really enjoy Then obviously mix it in high school stuff my training stuff here so it's really the full spectrum from elementary to pro so actually have a pro guy trained out. The train is like old son. So it's it's kind of funny but the full spectrum become a actually insane thing about how your coaching someone's dad minerals..

"It a capella. I still express your don't smoke. Do you yourself Because there's no name given brother, brain damage and brain damage on the mike Mike 40 Niner situation is they have narrowed down their choice to two And obviously you mentioned Trevor Laurence goes one Zack Wilson goes to The 40. Niners are out right now, either Alabama quarterback Mack Jones or not to go to state quarterback Trey Lens, which means they're unlikely or certain not to take Justin Fields at number three. This is the end zone. They welcome back to the end zone. Jamie Moore didn't hit him. Matt the Hitman missile over at the Taj Mahal, and that was Ian Rap aboard the San Francisco Uh, quarterback situation they want. They weren't They went for three. And now it's down the two. That's what that's what he's reported. Guys that that takes are getting hotter than coming in hotter and hotter as we get closer to Thursday, and the hottest one for today, and it applies locally here to the Lions, the lines of shit there at seven. I think that if Justin Fields is there for the white as much as I'd like to see a triple moved back out of the first round and get you know, multiple first round picks and And load up the treasure trove, the war chest for the upcoming years here for the lines. I think that's the direction they should go if they're sitting there at seven. I think Justin Fields is good enough to take at at seven, and I wouldn't pass at him. But Chris Simms, Jamie sends me Ah mock draft for Chris Simms, who says not only see not going to, He's not going to the Lions. He's not going. He's not going to the Broncos at night. He's not going to the Patriots at 15. He the Bears who have the red rifle as their quarterback. They're not going to take him at 20. You could probably come up with another handful. The teams In fact, almost out of the first round, and he's going to go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 32. There's not that. Ah, hotter. Take that I have seen than that of Chris. It was talking about fields. Wow, What a free fall from 2 to 32. I'll tell you what he comes up and you get fields in a free fall. I want a guarantee. That he's not getting outside the top 10. Was my guarantee for you. Ah, I gotta agree with you on that. I don't see him falling out of the top. Did I mean, look, it love him or hate him. He's a Buckeyes. This is that. He's a talent. He has a bucket. He's got talent. He's got talent, and he's proven it over and over. What he's 20 what was discussed These 20 and 20 and two he's 20 into at Ohio State, So He knows how to win. He's a winner. He knows how to lead. He's a leader. So look anybody who anybody who needs a quarterback and they passed on him in the top 10. Do not. Do not do not be. You'll regret that. Hey, there's a lot of teams that are regretting Lamar Lamar Jackson. Right now. There's a lot of teams were Grayton, Eric a neuron. I mean, look, I be Aaron Rodgers was doing his thing. Everybody let him drop he tree fault. And look at what happened to him. So I'm gonna tell you that Don't let Janie Sims. If there's a free fall, and then fields turns out to be somebody they can and can't play in the well, somebody said higher. Kristen's is their general manager. Oh, yeah, without a job. What? What He's picking. I mean, good God, and wait a minute. He does have his number. His first three picks. No, it's first five picks. He's got Trevor Lawrence, Zack Wilson, Matt Jones guy. I hope it Um, tomorrow, Chase Devante Smith going to Miami. And, um, pizza. Ooh, he's got Detroit taking school said so. I mean, Christians. He's not. I mean, he's off the record, but he's he's sometimes I mean, it makes sense. I only see trail A. It's going to Washington. I just don't see that. But okay, what I get that there's been a lot of momentum, whether it's Detroit media or Detroit pads or just this area fans, everybody that you listen to and you see and you talk to There's great momentum for the offensive tackle for the Ducks go into the lion's. If they sit there at seven, you know for me. I don't want to see that I would like to see I'd like to see fields. That could be good back. I would I would. I would move back. You know, there's one There's a There's a writer for the athletic who talks the unnamed sources, and he's got like three or four. And then these guys, they're attacking Sewell as a sopra spect. So maybe they're just doing that try to sabotage him and see if he'll slide down on the draft or not, But You know they don't. They don't like his tape. Better like it's footwork. Oh, kind of things coming in, I say, Man, it gets hot and heavy this week. Everything's coming at you from every angle and the hotter If you've got a microphone in front of you, the better Yeah, I'm then. Hi. Everybody. Hey, this is the crazy time of the year 7349 and 18 50 who you got in the draft. Where's Justin feels going into free falling. Is he gonna freefall Ain't good. He could 7349 of 18 50. Let's go to Philly. Eat whatever you like. Now what, you man, What's up, guys? I think he's a talent. I can't see him fallen that far. But I'll tell you what, though. How cool the scenario would that be for him like if he fell all the way to Tampa? A lot of Marino style, right and having Tom Brady's competitive is he is, I'm sure you know if he sees if he knows he's leaving. I would think he would be the best guy to bring him on board and show him the ropes. I think that would be like a room because let's face it, man. Sometimes it all depends on what organization that you end up in that either can make or break your career, right. I mean, I was. You know what Rogers is the one like, you know that. That sounds Marino. Did he have an attitude issue or something? That was our red? There was something with Marino. I'll tell you what happened with him. Uh, Going into the 82 season. Pittman's preseason big time. I mean, because of the previous five years, and for whatever reason, they struggled under opener against, uh Against Carolina, and there was, I think there was the whole cocaine thing going on, and it's face it. There was no awareness in those days, so they're probably with some whispers. It kind of underachieved, but between you may I think Coach Fabio is we were talking about some coaches to take a Rolls Royce and they run into the ground. Well, obviously faith coach Fabio took over because Jackie Cheryl Took the job at Texas A and M, which both sham back or was actually offered. Jackie Cheryl took the job. Coach Fabio took over. They didn't have the greatest of you. They were bad, but neither they they were Were blowing people out of the water. I think they lost the S M u and accountable. But hey, didn't have the greatest senior year he met fact he did. He had a bad right thinking through, threw more interceptions and touchdowns and, uh, drug rumors will get you there. Not like its memory already wasn't great, either, though. His performance wasn't great, either. But see, here's the thing now. You end up with don? Sure Right. You don't end up It was the cult's right. You end up with Don Shula and you know, And this is kind of what I was complaining about the other day. Haven't Stephen three, you know, running spread option. You know, the Miami Dolphins went from Andhra Franklin grinding out minutes and yardage to overnight man overnight. All of a sudden, it's Clayton, Super and Marino overnight. Why? Because he utilized the Talent that was in front of them that just being this slave to well, this is my offense, and we know you can't do that. You know, whatever you have you have you got around not saying that you That you make on 1 80. But you know, you got a tweet things to your personnel and sure, literally overnight went from a running team with onto Franklin to all of a sudden. You know they were all out air assault with Marino. But that's why I think he is. You know, there's the drug rumor thing, but really, he had a poor senior year now. Was it because of photo video wasn't the greatest coach. I don't know. But you saw what happened to the Pittsburgh program a few years into his tenure, So I'm just saying, Well, I was also a great people. Point to the 83 drafts when you talk about quarterbacks. So what that was Elway went that draft right. He was number one and He had a couple of Jim Kelly was in that draft, right guys that didn't make it like Blackledge and Yeah, that looks good memory on that thing on that 83 draft. It's It's tremendous. It was really interesting. But you know, we were talking about Bert Jones last week and I said how that franchise fell off a cliff. And I think, John if John Elway gets drafted, there's a chance. They say that that franchise and they don't leave. But here's and this is the God's honest truth. I went to a huge Yankees Orioles Syriza In August of 1980. Ava's a great race. I think the Yankees 103 games and Orioles won 100 that the Yankees ended up. It was unbelievable, serious, but, um I remember opening my program, and they showed an empty memorial stadium..
Who is QB2 in 2021 NFL Draft?
"It would have been fully justified and with that we welcome you back as always live from the seaport district appear seventeen brought to you by chase. I green this get up and we have a huge our coming your wine. It starts with this. It's a quarterback sneak mc shays make board is in and wait till you see the first four picks. He's with us live to break down off the top. Then wait a minute. What did russell say. Is he talking about getting sri. Didn't from seattle the wild ride in. Nfl history continues. And then we'll tell you how the shawn watson saga plays out and what it will mean for every team in the nfl. All that and more as we get out with you when this hour which starts right now with todd mcshay post super bowl mock draft. It's available right now on espn plus all it. It's fascinating a number one. That's no big surprise. He's got trevor lawrence going number one to urban meyer and the jaguars. But here's where it gets interesting. He also has quarterbacks going to three and four at two he has the jets taking. Byu's zack wilson who has been rising up. Everybody's draft what he has been be talk of the nfl draft process so far at three overall. He's projecting trade the panthers moving up from eight to take north dakota state's train lance to be their quarterback of the future which leaves ohio states justin field sitting there. Four and mcshea has the falcons taking him fields the second highest total qbr in college football season and then jones sliding down a little bit later to make five quarterbacks in the first round in there he is the man with the mic board. It is mcshea and it's awesome. Let's start with this todd. We all understand. Trevor lawrence going number one. Nothing even to discuss. How firmly planted in. Your mind is zack. Wilson right now as the number two quarterback in this draft. I think very firmly. The first thing i do when the season is over and a govan studied the top quarterbacks. Because i know that's what we're going to talk about for the majority of this process leading up to the draft and after lawrence. There's a little bit of a gap and then at zack wilson. And then there's a gap between gods trey lance from north dakota state and justin feels from ohio state. So i think he is clearly the number two quarterback in this class. The question becomes greenie. Is that the jets taking two or the jets gonna move out and allow a team like a carolina to that number two spot to take him. And that all depends on the domino's in terms of the veteran quarterbacks right now where does shawn watson wind up carson wentz. We know is going to get moved to chicago indianapolis. I think joe douglas. The general manager is kind of waiting. And seeing some of these other quarterbacks go and he's fielding phone calls he's not aggressively making calls but fielding calls to see maybe if they can move sam darnold and if they do exactly since the pick for the jets at number two and if not as i said i think the jets will move outta to and wilson will still wind up being that number number two overall pick in this class. I grew the. I've been saying for a while. I agree with you completely. He'll be number two. The question is who winds up making the peck. Then the other part of this is. I'm old enough to remember a time when we wondered if justin fields might supplant trevor lawrence as the number one draft now all of a sudden these the fourth quarterback off the board. How did that happen. You go back. And study games against indiana northwestern. And then the college football playoff national championship game against alabama. He completed around fifty two percent of throws with five interceptions. Those games in my opinion. You look at it physically. He's big. he's sturdy strong who mobile. He's got a big arm all the traits that you look for. But he likes to see his receivers. Come open and get stuck on that. I read very frequently. So you compare him with trae. Lance and i have identical grades on the to train. Lance didn't play the level of competition. Didn't play as many games as is justin fields but i think he processes the game a little quicker in terms of going from his first into a second and third and seeing the entire field. So it won't surprise me if it feels is third quarterback off the board. But i think they're kind of bunched together in that third tier of quarterbacks behind lawrence wilson and then the other two and then i want to ask you about the guy that you currently have fifth because i'm a regular listener of the first draft podcast and so i'm listening the other day to you and field. Yates and mel kiper talking about what was going on at the senior bowl and everyone is raving about matt jones. Your buddy mel had max jones moving this thing and i believe he has him sort of. I believe he hasn't projected higher than you have in projected. What do you see for mack. Jones as this process goes on the fifth quarterback in the first round. Well i think what's going to happen. He's matt jones is going to benefit from the fact that these four quarterbacks are gonna come off the board quickly and it's probably going to be cut because of trades moving up. I have matt jones going number twelve overall right now in a i had chicago moving up to twelve in san francisco. Moving back to twenty we have to see where carson wentz go. It does go to

"Matt Jones running back nausea. Harris receiver Devante Smith. He can score in a variety of ways.

A lot of NFL talent maybe Best defensive line. Alabama's seen all season, but they've got a big challenge. Trying to slow down that explosive offense of the Crimson Tide is was gonna be a fun one. Okay, the other, though. Clemson, Ohio State now Ohio State. A lot of you said, Hey, They didn't play a lot of games this year, and maybe even questioned whether they should even be in the national semifinals should get a chance a shot I should say, but Simpson, of course, has that number one draft pick that quarterback that everybody's going to be after? So what are we gonna see here? TJ is a former quarterback. I cannot wait for this one. This is going to be a quarterback. Dual. You've got Trevor Laurence on one side as you mentioned from Clemson. First pick in next year's NFL draft. And then how about Justin Fields from Ohio State and Trevor Laurence? You've got a guy with the armed town and the accuracy in the poison moxie, but Justin Fields, he is just so dynamic. He can hurt you throwing the ball and running it. This game could come down to which of these two guys has the football last and it's a rematch. Last year Semifinal. So is a quarterback. TJ. I cannot wait to watch this. All right? I know you can't wait to watch it anyway. Not just as a as a quarterback, but Jesse, my QB. Tell me who you got there. Who? You who you got in the final and who is your national champion? Put me on the spot already. TJ. Okay, I'm gonna go with Alabama. I just think there to complete of a team on offense and defense, beating the Irish and then give me Clemson against Ohio State. I like Clemson's defense. How aggressive they are. They loved the blitz. And I just think Trevor Laurence is too good and then my way too early National championship prediction.

"But I think it's one of her best records. I found it to be a little more idiosyncratic. I think a little more experimental and also a little more intimate. So for me, those were really welcome things and if quarantine ends up yielding More records like that. I'd be really pleased, Amanda. For years we've been hearing about how all the money all the economics of music is in touring album sales are way down streaming. Makes money, but really, for the very top artists so without the revenue stream from live shows what's happening out there for musicians. I mean, I think musicians like all of us are really very much trying to figure this out. Day by day, hour by hour. I think we're starting to hear about artist booking whole tour's through empty venues and then live streaming those performances. I used to really like going to shows, in part because it meant I finally wouldn't have to be staring at my phone for a few hours, But But I do think we're seeing a lot of, you know, ingenuity, a lot of inventiveness a lot of persistence in the face of tragedy. You know, we're seeing artists using YouTube and Instagram live to broadcast their shows to stay in contact with their fans without hitting the road. You know, one of the people who's been doing that is John legend. He's been hosting soon concerts and he's released an album over the summer. So I spoke to John right about when that album came out at the very unpopped Star hour of seven in the morning. It is not musicians hours, but it's father of toddler hours, So it's fine. Very grateful to be talking to you, John. You know, Amanda, You talked about releasing an album right now. But legend told me that he was still recording the album when he went into quarantine. Usually one of the last things we do is one we ad featured guests and two We usually do some string recordings. The guy who normally arranges our strings guy named Matt Jones. He brought the players into kind of individually, play their parts and do it while distancing and then stack it all up together and finally got a recording. Is there anything lost in the making of an album when you're not in the same room together? It's been a long time since bands and musical collectives and of all kinds. Gathered in one studio played the track and separated things out. Even somebody is old school is the late Leonard Cohen, Remember interviewing him at his place in L. A. Had one little microphone on his desk like I do a guitar behind him, and then he would send the tracks to his producer and some other musicians, and it would come back. And he was somebody in his eighties. Um there's anything lost by not being in the same room. I think there is something lost in certain instances for rhythm sections. We are in the same room when we're recording the rhythm section backing tracks. I like to be there to talk to the drummer and tell them what I want. I like to be there with the horn players and the backing vocalist. So there are a lot of instances when I won't just let somebody sent me something. It's not as free flowing and collaborative if you don't interact with each other. No. In the publishing business. A lot of people are putting off releases of books in the movie business. Things have stalled and in the music business is well. A lot of albums have been delayed, thinking that releasing things right into the teeth of the pandemic. Might not be such a good idea. Why did you choose to put out bigger love right now? I've never held an album back and I have a hard time even conceiving of holding an album back because I spend so much time working on it is takes up so much of my energy and then I'm so excited about being done with it that I'm like, Why would I hold this back from the public like it's time for them to hear, and I feel like of any of the albums I've put out. I feel like this is the album that feels like it should come out during this time because It feels like a kind of a musical hug. It feels like a music that would help one get through tough times, and I feel like This album was made for this moment. I think one of the songs that fits into exactly what you're saying thematically and in the way it made me feel when I was listening to it for the first time last night is a beautiful song called Never break that You're going to perform for us now. And, Yeah, We got a good thing, babe. Whenever life is hard, we'll never lose our way. Way Both know who we are. Who knows a Barrow tomorrow Way don't know what's in the storms. I just know I'll always follow the light in your home. I'm not worried about it. And I'm now verbal way know how the story we will ever great way will never burning. Miller from day shall strong enough to stay way will never break a house. A lot of writers can mount and Shane alone remain. We will never No, never. We will never No, never It's all that good since age, it's more than a passing flame. You are their explanation of what love really means.

"But like that's not because of his 10. By the way, Matt Jones. I don't know He's back. All right to me. I don't put my Mike picking the Heisman Trophy That's not evaluated Guy's talent. I mean, the height the Heisman, most of time. Heisman Trophy winners don't amount to squat. Well, yeah, in the Florida once especially but I do but I do like Trask in all honesty, and I think he's been so many. I don't know why it wasn't Three horse race last week because he's been playing good football, But I understand he's a system. Maybe it's a system quarterback, and we've seen that from Florida from Steve. I mean from from what's his name? The guy that I loved. From Shane Matthews Matthews, Steve Spurrier. You know a George my Rebecca Today. People don't remember him, so it might be that way. But I just think now he's a number two Heisman guy, but I don't think I don't even think that is a system quarterback is that it's so different like back then you could say that about certain schools or certain coaches like Now teams play such a different style of offense, Even the college game. Everything spread. Everything's fast. I like. I don't know that he's just a system quarterback. I think he is good. I think contrast is good since I mean last year, Burrows was great. This kid the way he's played the 1st 56 weeks doesn't look that far from what Peru's worked last year. It's weird, their numbers air. Their numbers at Florida are amazing. I don't make things right now. But you know what we don't want appears to take any of these guys, because really, it's it's got to be the organization. I mean, you just don't make mistakes, like have been made. We don't ever running him. All velocity this pay Anderson Hey, Anderson and Lamar Miller To me looked quicker. Found the holes. The offensive line looked a little bit better. I'm not playing their world beaters. But last weekend, maybe Montgomery Like I've said before. Is the issue here. I have no idea. But the running game did look a little better. Would you agree? The best run? I mean, the average 2.4 yards per carry mean. I mean, never mind. Maybe, but the best run of the night was that one from the rookie artifice Pierce the undrafted asking out of Oregon? Yeah, that was the best run of the night. If anything, maybe you give him more of a look. I mean, why at this point, What do you have to lose? If you're the bears your naggy, You gotta talk. You got Two weeks down. You probably got a plate, Robiskie. I mean, if they play falls again, I don't know, Mike. I mean, if they play falls again, then they're afraid to admit they made a mistake. And they're not man enough to go upto risky and say we're going to see what we got with you. We screwed up. He's not the right quarterback for the For the line. We have your better escape ability. You were having a decent season. We just thought he would be better because of seasoning. You got to try to talk your biscuit back because I think Travis Keys. Confidence. I think Travis Keys made more money City. Honest to God for next year. Then he has plane. You might want to protect his shoulder, not even want to get back out there and you got it because I know this if I'm New England next year, even if I'm Carolina with Teddy Bridgewater It does about 56 teams that will look at your biscuit. There are Yeah, there it seems that will be into it. I just don't know how many would look. It falls. Not many know you've got to be desperate in the booth. There's where the Bears were desperate. That's where they went on their mouthfuls in their minds. I wasn't desperate. We were sailing, but in their minds, they had this pre concocted regardless of what happened, so They decided to go ahead and do it. And now we got a mess. We got a mess in our hands. That's for sure they have. They have without question made a mess of the situation. Absolutely. That Because the offense is regressing, and I can't play in pace for everything. He goes along with Maggie and this quarterback thing with false because he's Maggie's got the history with force. But pace has gotten row Kat Smith. He's made some pretty good graphics. It's the quarterback situation that at the end of the day if it doesn't get straightened out, regardless how we picked in other positions in the draft and filled some certain positions with really good talent. He's gone. If they don't figure this out soon, Pace has done well in the defensive side for the absolute. His offense that has just been a nightmare in the first three first round picks to swing and miss on all three is what's really going to haunt him. When we come back, we'll talk to her body looked for Gandhi. No. Yeah, we'll see what's hot If Bob Swap traps, please. That's right. Yeah, I bet you those tickets are selling Now. You can get a good price that trash after last week, and they've got Florida's got Vandy this weekend. Oh, my God. 10 pad the stats. Yeah. Yeah, But Alabama is a 30 point favorite, too, with their quarterback, So I mean, you know Beyond, says Justin Fields has the toughest game of the weekend. Indiana looks like the toughest team out on comedy points they're getting. I know they're laying 20 point in Ohio State's Lane 20 points against Indiana for real baby. What is it a picket game? No, they're getting 2020. What sort of that sort of tells you something in a way, But what times they can't come? That's an 11 o'clock. There you go off. They like last week. I go undefeated because I didn't pick up damn 11 o'clock. We better stay away will continue to. We'll work our way through the border. We got to get after a lot of NFL games and some big 10 games, So we'll talk about all that, plus Looper Gandhi when we come back.

"Matt Jones, Byron Metcalf and Joe Forton Ball Right now, Alabama leads Texas A and M 42 to 17 in the marquee afternoon match up. Rand. Edwards is our ESPN college football inside and I'll start with that game, Brad I mean me and him had kind of a lot of hype. Coming in before the year, but it just looks like Alabama is great. Once again. Are they sort of the team you like the most early this season? Yeah, There's every reason to like Alabama a couple weeks ago before the SEC it started. There were, you know a few teams that you might have looked at as a contender with them. In the SEC. But but you know everyone else was losing players, you know, to opt outs and season ending injuries. And meanwhile, Alabama just stayed intact and course they've come out these first two weeks, and they've looked like we expect Alabama to look in the first two games, so At this point, I would say they're clearly the favorite in the S E. C, A and M, I think is shaping up to be a really interesting story. I don't want to over dramatize this. Obviously. Jimbo Fisher, with the big guaranteed contract isn't going anywhere. There are a whole lot of a and M fans that expected that this year year three under Jimbo was going to be a big breakthrough year. I don't know whether they thought they'd win the SEC, but they thought that they were going to be really, really good with a senior quarterback and Kellen Monde. And they're going to lose today and they'll just be one on one, but their next two games are against Florida and Mississippi State. So there's a chance if they don't get a lot better. They could be one and three to start the year and that maybe he was playing with the brand. It's beginning. I mean, like that people had its chances. Yeah. Brad Agos. Expectations fair. Are they in hands by all the money they invested in both Jimbo and just the entire program? Well, I don't think paying a coach. A lot of money in itself is going to give you the expectations. I mean, obviously, you know the people who Who put that contract together for him had high expectations. But I think what's created what we have right now within the fan base is that Jimbo is coming and he's done. Off the field. I guess what they would have expected him to do, which has recruited a really high level just like he did at Florida State. He's put together a really talented roster. And you know, it's got top 10 level talent, and it is confusing when you when you put that, along with the quarterback who is the most experienced in the whole conference by number of starts. And a guy who you know if you watch him play, and he makes a really nice place. But then there's some other times that he does some things that just make you scratch your head and look when when Here's the thing for me. When they hired Jimbo. They felt like they were not only getting one of the few coaches in college football who still active who had won a national championship, but they also were getting they believed one of the best offensive minds in the game. I don't think that's true, Jimbo Fisher. You know if you look at whatever you would call a Jimbo Fisher offense. No defensive coordinator has ever feared the so called Jimbo Fisher offense in the way that they used to fear the chip Kelly offense at Oregon or the Art Briles offense at Baylor. Okay, His offenses air just they're good, but they're not great. And so I think that's where the miscalculation really was in the part of a and M is how good their offenses would be because of having Jimbo. Texas needed a late miracle last week to outlast Texas Tech. They were 17.5 point favorites in that game. Today, they were 10.5 point favorites over TCU and lost the game outright. How hot is Tom Herman seat? And are we going to start hearing about Urban Meyer rumors anytime soon? I don't think his C is hot yet. I mean, you could argue that nobody sees should be hot this year, just because of the amount of money that all these schools have lost, And maybe it's not feasible. I wouldn't put it past. You know, a number of college football fan bases anyway. O r or boosters. But, you know, given all that I don't think you're going to see huge buyouts to get rid of coaches like Tom Herman. But let's let's back up a little bit. It's only one loss and this is a conference that still appears to be completely up for grabs. In Texas hasn't won this league since 2009. So I think they're still in good shape to win the league. You know, this one loss didn't change anything there. I mean, sure, it's disappointing what's happened the first two weeks? But they're still where they need to be to have a chance to be the conference champion and for them a CZ Muchas they would love to be in the playoffs and all that other stuff. Just winning. The big 12 would be a huge step forward, talking to Brad Edwards, ESPN college football insider, The score that I look at right now and it gives me the biggest pauses. Jacksonville State leads Florida State 24 21 Amazing. It is hard for me to comprehend what's happened at Florida State, and it's not. You can't just say, well, its a new coaches first year this has been a number of years in a row. And yet you and it seems to not get any better. Why is that? Well, it went back to Jim Bo's last year, and you could get into all sorts of things that one of the Constance throughout all this has been the offensive line play. They've been really bad on the offensive line. Some of that has been because of injuries. But that's the number one thing. They've got to get fixed, because until they do that the quarterback's not gonna have any chance that said, I don't think they're quarterbacks have been that good in recent years, and the other thing is the recruiting has fallen off since Jimbo left. They have gone from being a perennial top 10 recruiting, if not top five. A team that to you now outside of the top 10, if not outside of the top 15 And so the talent level is not what we're used to being and what's alarming when you see this score..

"Radio network. Maximum security, I across the finish line Saturday, but ultimately finishes seventeenth. He queued from the winner. Spot after stewards of held the objection that was filed moments after the race. Yes. The fastest two minutes in sports turned into the most agonizing twenty two minutes video review. But Matt Jones of the Kentucky sports radio says it's the decision that was needed start in turn veering off into other lanes killed. I mean, that's really the case because you start clipping hails on horses. And it can be a real problem any there's no doubt about the maximum security veered off and that is against the rules. Now, I still think maximum security was the best horse didn't need to offer veered off because it got a little spooked about puddle that I think gave a reflection die, but regardless to horses were behind. It it cut them off. If it wasn't for the jockey of war of will. I think you could have had a devastating Paulo. But I think for people who really know horse racing. It was the right decision. Even though it made a lot of people mad country house becoming your Kentucky Derby winner as a result earlier on ESPN radio on into the night. The right call I believe was made idea. And and I'm not an expert, but I have listened to a half dozen experts on this in the last twenty four hours, and they all Greek that it was the right call the letter of law was the correct call, and you know, the on one hand you feel you're happy for the hall of fame trainer. Bill Maat who wins? I continue Kentucky Derby every he's he's in his mid sixties. I believe he's been he's devoted his game to his life to this game. The you know and Bill Maher gets his first win. So for him. You're happy. I think it was the right thing to me. Bet maximum security. It's not a good thing when the best horse on the track doesn't win. And if you're in a ask the from a financial standpoint or for the sports, well, the horse that actually ran the best race and had the best time. I mean, it would not his fault that that this happened. So the best horse didn't win. And anytime the best team doesn't win the best horse doesn't win. I don't think. That's a good thing. I think it's added tons of intrigue to the Preakness out in Baltimore and a couple of weeks, and I know the wins both the final two legs because then it'll just blow up it would be derby was maximum security is ninety two second choice country house. I guess was on the far outside post only his second win in seven career starts for for country house. But now, there's there's talk that max the maximum securities owners may appeal to the Kentucky racing commission. And so again in just reading it. I don't think they have much of. A chance. I don't even talking about courts. And I just I don't wanna go there. Saints fan tried. It didn't work there either. Sportscenter allnight ESPN radio coming up Monday in the NBA game.

And we are so eager to get your take on what you saw Saturday night at Rupp. Well, while it was a great game. In a terrific performance by Kentucky. I'm not sure I've seen the Wildcats play anywhere near that. Well, all year long, and it was on the heels of a game in which I didn't think it's like he played that well gets LSU if they lost obviously on that that bad call on the the offensive basket interference at the at the close of regulation, but they showed what they can be think. It's really interesting in all the analytics, we look at all the all the tape. We watch weakened weekend. Tell you exactly who team has been. But, but it's it's a lot harder to be able to tell you what a team's capable of. And and how what they can improve to be. And I think Kentucky showed in that game against Tennessee. What they're capable they're capable of beating anybody and being as good as almost anybody. I don't think when when Duke plays its best. I don't think anybody's as good as Duke. But but I don't think anybody playing their best outside the two is better than Kentucky. It's fast. We saw Kentucky. Best against Jay. We always try to pick a look under the surface for things that are wrong with teams in in Tennessee's always have some issues. But they they've masked them very well after a game like that. When you go down by twenty four points, you cut it you make a run then you lose by nineteen. What does that say to the rest of college basketball as we get toward the end of the SEC and the tournament in game planning against them. You know, Paul. I don't think it's anything more than than they had a they had a bad game..

"But before that on the on the fan. I tell the Kentucky fan I haven't called in the trash stop. I called in answered Matt Jones when he was talking about the Tennessee football, and I called him when vandy was saying they owned us after three game win streak and we'd be in twenty one times in a row, and we met Johns. It's always fun for me. I think it is for him to and I'll really all he does when he had his mouth. Has changed feed anyway. But for the Kentucky fan, I just want to telling that, you know, I haven't trashed up, but if you won't some I'll tell you we'll come and we're going to stop you in football this year as usual if we can stop doing anything, I'd do the stomping, football and basketball. But my question for you, Paul this, you know, Kentucky. I mean, Tennessee the flight and scrap to you know, to get where they are the past couple years, and then they got up to number one. And and this win streak out feel like the night. They were worried more about that win streak and being number one and not concentrating on what they're supposed to do. And now they have now that they got that out their back then get back to scrapping in back to that defense. They were I don't know. I mean, I as a coach I I've heard enough coaches say you like to lose a game somewhere along the way just to just to. So you can start coaching again. And getting your your point across. I I think it whether it's now or later, I don't think it really matters. I it's really what happens now and. And do they drop off to they start slip?

Super Bowl 2019: Pregame coverage before Patriots vs. Rams
"The game, of course, is a big part of it. But also there are other sort of story lines beyond the the Rams and the patriots in a couple of them. There are interesting to me is I want to start Myron with with with gronk. He's kind of had a resurgence a little bit here in the playoffs starting to see a little bit of the gronk of bold wrestlemainia is the first Sunday in April. I'm of the belief that I'm going to see grog make his debut in the WWE it wrestlemainia and then his time in football. Is over. After today. Do you agree with that? And do you think that whatever happened today win or lose could have any effect either way? Well, I think that makes a lot of sense excuse me, especially because you're talking about a guy who can probably get millions of dollars on a pretty limited. Wrestling scheduled Cadillac around. Arousing Brock Leser, like it's not like the old days where he's going to have to wrestle three hundred days out of the year. This guy's going to get paid to show up on special events and make millions. He's talked so much about how much money he saved throughout his career. He's talked about not wanting to play too long. I don't know if today affects anything because he's a first ballot hall of Famer whether he wins or loses today, he's got a bunch of money in the Bank. And I think he could be the next rock in. In. I think he could be that. He's got a personality. You're not a wrestling guy. He's not the rock rock. Am wrestling. He could be that. Well, rock started out as what rocky my via. He was fighting from the family name. And then he emerged as his own way. I can't broadcast that personality in the WWE. We'll promote him. I think he could become a superstar who eventually goes in the movies and forgets football. All right. I I'm not going to argue with the wrestling part of it. But because you're wrong. But Dan, do you think this is it for I? Yeah, I do. But I do believe that tonight's result swings that okay? I can see if they lose tonight especially in close ballgame Brady convincing gronk for another year. Come back for another year. Don't forget is AO win the first round tackled. It's not part of this team. He'll be back. Like, we give me one more run. Gronk I can see that happening. Now, if they win I do believe that he calls it a career as he rightfully shit. Don't take don't. Remember, the comments he made this last week of him talking about the wear and tear, and how much it weighs on you. Mentally, and how hard it is to get hurt and have to practice, and how difficult it that difficult of a thing that is now to say that he's the next rock is absolutely outrageous. Like the row how first of all the rock is the rock was a guy that went into wrestling because that was the the the means to an end that was the vehicle. News and his family had been. He was going to you second of all the rock is incredibly business savvy and Hollywood savvy works like a dog like this is a guy. When it comes to football. Yes. When it comes to training for football. Yes. But he doesn't. I mean, the rock literally works like a dog. I need more talking about the rotten. Now. I saw the rock when he was in survivor series as rocky my via no one knew he wasn't good. And he was trying to figure out who he would be gronk could come in in the social media air, which rocketed the rock didn't come in in the social media era. All I'm saying is gronk could be a superstar in wrestling. Well, let me add gronk is only he's only twenty nine it feels like he's been around forever damnit. He's only twenty nine now he's taking a lot of hits bodies like a forty year old guy. But I guess what I'm saying is listen to countdown to kickoff on ESPN radio you've been through this process and Myron, and I haven't the process to decide you know, what that's it. Right. That's a hard process for every athlete. No matter the level, whether you're elite or not is it in part of it. I think is do I have something to go. Do do you think? I mean, we we talk about wrestling and a lot of people may roll their eyes. But it is something I know he can do if he wants whether it can be great or not he can do it is that talked to me about the process of saying I'm walking away. And and how how how players go through that mindset. Yeah. I mean for for me, you know, it was a great majority of it was I don't love the crap anymore. Doesn't it feel like he doesn't either? Yeah. I mean, that's that's no you're not gonna pay. Now granted if someone was going to pay me five million dollars. I would have dealt with it again, if someone's gonna pay gronk ten or twelve million dollars, maybe, but you get you deal with the crap. Like, so many people doing their job you do with that crap. Because you still love it. You love all the things that competition the locker room, the fellas the drive to be great the work, you love all that. And then once you don't love the dealing with the crap anymore that stuff doesn't matter anymore. It's not worth it anymore. And that's when you start facing the question of do I wanna do this anymore? And it makes it completely now. When I went through my transition, I wasn't for sure. Like, I was like all right. I want to get into analysts in broadcasting get into TV TV. And I was like I'm just gonna go rather than sitter sitting around. And wait. So I knew that there was at least the opportunity there for me. Gronk scan have way more. More than I had presented to him. But if you get to that point where you're done loving, the crap that you have to deal with and there are avenues for you to go. It makes it such an easier decision in move for you to go. You know what I'm done? Here's the next Chad having those options, I do think is is huge. You will have a lot of options. And you didn't know when you quit you're going to get to do a show with Matt Jones in my. But then sometimes I have earlier if I did exactly the Lord's blessing. There you are. So let's talk about the next to the players on the field. Maybe the person that has the most sort of its state today. Myron is your guy Tony Romo? I mean. I'm not sure an announcer has gotten this level of praise maybe ever like universal praise of people going Stephen Smith said is the best performance he'd ever seen from an announcer. And so the thing is that's awesome. Except you've got one more game. And I always of the opinion the most important two days in your life or the first in the last at a job. Well, the last impression he's gonna get from us is this game. Is there pressure on him to recreate the magic from two weeks ago? I think there's a ton of pressure on him to do that. And I think the problem is announcers like him who get this early praise. How many of them go down as being folks? And a lot of people don't like, you know, it's unfortunate because you start out liking guys like Tony Romo. He deserves all of this praise, but because you expect now people expect him to be some profit every game the minute. He shows any sort of flora weakness people are gonna jump onto that and start to criticize him. But I think he's facing more pressure than any announcer at a Super Bowl or any analysts had a Super Bowl that I can remember because people think he's like something we haven't seen before. And now he's going to have to deal with that pressure. Incomes care like most of the time. I'll be honest with you, Dan. I don't even know who the announcers are until I realized what network game is on. But with Romo I mean, there are prop bets on how many he's gonna call. Like, this is he is not the biggest story the game is. But you know, he's the second third or fourth. Biggest story. I think a big part of it too is like people are having a ton of fun listening to him. Torino because not only is he very good at what he does in. I've said this as a broadcaster networks you better have quarterbacks on there. Because you you've gotta be able to get people to understand the game different levels that communicated to all kinds of people. But it's the fact of he continuously telling educating people on the wise in house put it's fun. Like, you're having fun. Like John Madden was the last announcer. Who seemed like he was having as much fun as Romo, and it's it's okay. For him to talk over Jim Nance for a second. Because if you were sitting at a bar with your friends are in the living room having a beer with your friends. You talk over your buddy here in this moment. So it's not like this. You know in cookie cutter ish. Oh, we don't do that. Because it's television. But what happens if I'm saying is really good. Then I'm gonna do it. You know? And I think that there is that appreciation for for from people going like this is really good. And he's telling me stuff, that's really. Good. But also like the fact that there's really nobody else on TV sounding like him in ways. Like that like talking over Jim Nance, Jayme lake. It just seems like he's having a blast doing it. There are very few announcers who make the crossover into a personality that they matter Madden did mired. I'd say Barkley has vital. Did like there are many. And I think romo's headed groups, Dan Orlovsky will continue to be on. Would you agree with that? Yes. I think he is definitely in that group of guys where you go. You're now going to watch games because romo's attached to it doesn't matter the game because he's gonna make any game more interesting. Just because of who he is become he's become a part of the game now, and that's a good thing. Because like damn fed people. Like, I think I honestly think there are very few announcers that them just being there matters. I think John Madden. Did I think dick Vitale did Bill Walton? I think dick Vitale did. And I think I think Tony Romo is is sort of becoming like that who's going to win the game. After all this talk who actually is going to

"I thought Texas AM was terrible. And then they go beat a Kansas state team that the tournament team by pretty good margin. So I don't know that anybody is terrible. I still think Kentucky in Tennessee or the only really good teams and LSU. They still have a played anybody yet. So let's see what happens when they get the best teams in the conference. They might join Kentucky and Tennessee in the top Gert. Yeah. That's where I wanted to go next because I mean, they just continue to get little attention. I mean, they're they're done the other night against Missouri. And I realize this is the twenty nineteen version of Missouri. Not last year's version, and then they pull off this near miracle. But. You're you're still suggesting though that the as you said that last week the back way schedule is not going to be their friend or maybe it will be. Good question is just how good, you know? Are they are they are they make the turnament good? Yeah. Are they six seven seat? Good. Sure. Are they three four seat? Good. I don't know. That yet. I wanna see what happens they score a lot of point. We ate. I think they scored eighty three in their last five games. They get up and down the court. And I love how we'll wait. I love how they play. I think they're a good team. But because they didn't play very many good teams out of conference. We really just don't know. And they only play Kentucky and Tennessee one. I think they I think they have to go to both NAS full and Lexington. So let's see how they do. I don't expect him to win those games. I mean, you can't expect them to be top seven teams on the road. But let's see are they competitive, you know, in if they are then I think they're dangerous because I will say this. I think from an individual standpoint, there's no more dangerous player in the country. Waters, and so are in in the SEC. And so I think when he's rolling they can be really good talking. Here would Matt Jones Melania get some thoughts on Tennessee. Because you know, they finally just let it out Saturday against Overmach team in West Virginia got off to a good start. They've had some nice winds. But this is not a vintage Bobby Huggins team. But until then they had struggled a couple of games. Probably shouldn't lost the Vanderbilt. They barely got past Alabama. Did anything about this team this Tennessee team that concerns, you know, nothing? I mean, even if they had lost that vandy game, which I think they probably should have. Because that does that hook and hold flagrant was absurd. I still think they're good. And you know, really good teams can drop a game on the lead on the road. What would worry me for Tennessee is not as a team? I think they're they're the best Tennessee team. Maybe you know. I don't wanna say ever. But you told me they've only been the elite eight one. One. So it's like, it's not. I mean, maybe they're really really good. Here's the only worry. My only worry for them would be when they match up against a team with a lot of link seeming she touts gave them a lot of trouble in that game. And I think links, you know, west Virginia's not good, but they had link and because all their guys are sort of a little under side in high. They're all big strong guys. I think they're vulnerable to a team with a lot of links. I and so they could I it's all for them going to be about who they draw you know in the in the tournament. I'll be see when they play Mississippi State team with a lot of Elaine and LSU, let's see what happens in those games. But in general, I think they're one of the three best teams in the country. I think they are the most consistent team in in terms of effort in the country dukes highs are higher than Tennessee's. But they're lows are lower Tennessee brings it every night. And that greet Williams game. It gets bandied the flop aside twenty three of twenty three free throws. For a big, man. That's one of the most impressive things I've ever seen you met. We hit him on Friday, and as impressive as as he was in Nashville, he was even more impressive here without I mean, this is a really special kid as you as you know. I I love the kid..

Adding that if you believe in something strongly enough, it can come true, boom. The reserve. Yes. Shaw van Damme smarter than science. Okay. So yes perspective. Louisville's airport was named after Muhammad Ali yesterday. They decided to to extend that honor to him and our good friend. Matt Jones at Kentucky sports radio tweeted about it. And said what a great honor it was. And what a great thing to do for the greatest of all time. Make sense, right? Yep. No, no, no, not according to internet user, Dave Thurman at determined seven who replied, various stupidly will the greatest donde towel took a bowl and washed his disciples feet. Then he died for all mankind. Ali was an excellent boxer. But let's keep things in perspective. Let's let's keep it all under spur perspective here. I like the greatest highlight that guy a lot. Yes. Is there? I think there's probably a comedian who has a bit about this. But the fact that like. The greatest honors to be named after an airport sucks. Yeah. That really sucks. Everybody hates going though. The worst place to go to and you're like, oh, great. Like this airports named after you. Awesome. That we're going socks today. We're going to go to the Michael Jordan car impound lot. Right. It's like who wants to go to Joe JFK airport. That place is hell on earth. I don't wanna go there. So why would you name it? I I would never listen when we get so famous that they're thinking about naming an airport after us because of all the airport reviews, we did for the airline industry. No, we resort. We don't want to give you a more deserted declined the offer to be named after an air. Yes. Gives a Jay Mariotti. Yes. They should actually that should be the thing. They should name airports after you think it's assholes. Yeah. Hey, I'm going to Hitler. He'll say. Back to Jesus. Jesus was better. He is the leader of the goats. Yes.

So Antonio Brown has a burner quite allegedly. Yeah. Thank you question, Mark. So I'm staying woke about this. I think you could just anyone could create a burner and also the picture of the burner was so fucking funny. It's some dude in in his family sitting outside their house, all and Yankees jerseys. So I feel like this guy is just fucking with Antonio Brown might even be Big, Ben. I don't think Big Ben, no. Flocked everybody true. Then you wouldn't be able to see the burner to go. What if the be no because he blocks everyone? He uses the burner to go. See what people are saying. And that that's how he sources his information of who to block, correct? So our hypothesis that we're working on his at at Michael five seven six nine two three nine four is actually the lady that runs. Ben Rothlisberger Twitter account planting Iraq a fake burner.
