"Jones has yet to make a statement since the death of George Floyd in the growth of the black lives. Matter Movement Dallas Defensive Tackle John Tari Pluto bleacher report that he plans to kneel during the national anthem and called out his team's owner birth recent silence, saying quote haven't talked to Jerry at all I hope he comes out and shows US support. You're an owner of an NFL team. Get what I'm saying. The majority of this team are these people that are being oppressed so even if you're not going to be in the forefront, we need to know we have your support in that type of way. Stephen. Floor is yours. Absolutely he's absolutely correct. And I think it's a damn shame that a guy that used to play for the Kansas City chiefs that spent last year with the cans with the Carolina Panthers, if I, remember correctly. This is the guided his first year as a Dallas. Cowboy and he's speaking out. We heard from Zeke Elliot heard anything from from Dak Prescott. We haven't heard anything from demarcus Lawrence, as it pertains specifically to Jerry Jones speaking out now I've said it before, and I said it again listen. I don't hate the cowboys I can't stand their fans and I will never deviate from that I've always. Always said the most disgusting nauseating fan base in American. History I mean it would every single fiber of my being anytime. They're miserable. No, during holiday seasons on Thanksgiving and Christmas it works for me because that's how much I despised. Cowboy fans I have no problem with the organization, and I actually am very fond. Of Jerry Jones and Steven Jones have profound respect for Jerry Jones and his business. Business Acumen and there's marketing genius. He is something special, but on this particular issue where the hell is a I. Don't want to hear anything and I'm not going to let up every chance I. Get every time I get an opportunity to address it. I'm going to address. It will one simple question where the hell is Jerry Jones. Where is e.? You are round. You're always around the magnifying. Magnifying yourself to the camera, you will certainly around the whole collar cabinet situation, and this is the key to keep the key point to remember about Jerry, Jones we have no probable what you feel. Whatever it is, you feel. He doesn't stop there. He tells you what anybody wearing his uniform will do. He talks about whether it's racial oppression and inequality, whether it's kneeling it the issue being hijacked. Hijacked by the President of the United States and political pundits, making it into a issue of patriotism and the flag when that's what it was never about Jerry. Jones Code Saad all of that and he and he went right along with it at said none of his players will neal. It will not happen and they didn't do it until the president called them sons a base and as A. A result they came together on a Thursday night and Jerry Jones along with those players took a knee in unity with the other teams at that particular moment top, but even then of the sixteen hundred plus players on an NFL roster, only about two hundred took a knee Jerry Jones has maintained his position, and he has not spoken for himself. He has spoken for the organization and he has. Has Spoken basically against any player who would even think of doing such a thing, but not at all of this stuff has happened since George Floyd's murder because that's exactly what it was murder. Jerry Jones is nowhere to be found my last point. Is this Mac I've said this before and I'll say it again. I am not saying that Jerry. Jones should say specifically anything I'm not saying what? What side he should take I'm not saying what point he should express. What I'm seeing is silence is not an option when it comes to Jerry Jones is should not be allowed. We should know where he stands on this issue. Because he lets us know way, he stands where everything else you're white. YOU'RE A billionaire. Your powerful and you're in your seventies. What the hell are you hot four? Come on out. Jerry come on out, Jerry Jones. Come on out, so we could see you and we hear you. We hear you with everything else. We see you would everything else. Where is Jerry Jones and it's a damn shame that I got to ask this question instead of his team's thank goodness for Tari Pope, and thank goodness for my man, and came over there world. I forgot my brain rain right here. For Tampa Bay, that's now on a cowboys that was on our show the other week. Four. That's IT Joe McCoy. Thank those two. They'll Gerald McCoy thank God for those two. Where the hell is everybody else? Add on the DALLAS, cowboys. They got nothing to say. Go ahead. Max Stephen that you've been saying this. You were saying this week before anyone else I. Give you credit for that. And in the case of the two players, you just mentioned in McCoy not that long ago, superstar player. Their imports right. They just got there and so maybe that has something to do with the fact that they feel more comfortable talking publicly about it, as it relates to Jerry Jones, because that's what's going on right now. Everyone is putting their finger in the wind to see which way it's blowing and especially Jerry Jones. WHO's concerned about business? As you know Steven from my positions on this show I. Don't use that as an excuse for being on the wrong side of social issues right but Jerry. Jones is clearly clearly about his bottom line, whatever his personal preferences are, and so far in his career as the owner of the Dallas cowboys. The prevailing winds have mirrored, it seems to me his personal preferences from public comments. He's made about why he support certain candidates for election and such and right now we're at a time in our history where those. Wins that had prevailed or changing and I? Think the reason he hasn't spoken yet is because he doesn't know what to say to make sure quote unquote. Both sides continue to patronize his product. And he's trying to figure that out right now. How can he support one side and not alienate them without alienating the other side by side I mean people who want social justice versus people who want to maintain the status quo. Max Two reasons why that is completely unacceptable. That is what Jerry Jones is doing a because. He stopped and the cowboys from doing anything. In other words. There's players on the cowboys this is this is America's team. America's team, the number one brand in sports, arguably and not in this players that have come out and have been vehement about what's going on and what needs to be done in terms of the cowboys organization in terms of the NFL. As as a body it. You gotta you gotTa. Take that into consideration. Where the hell are the cowboys? That's number one and number two again. It's because he's Jerry Jones, and if he was Jerry Jones but didn't stop his players from doing anything, but. The bottom on this no crime in that, but he has been vehement about stopping them. He cannot get away with being Saudi. He could save it. Feel wherever you. Go four down. He can't get away with be a silent. He cannot get away with that. I agree, but here's a question and you can take it rhetorically, or you can answer it. Why is Dan Snyder? Who was defiant for years and kept a racist name of his team suddenly talking about kind of obeying the will of the people why because he got hit in the pocket book? That's.

"There you have to bat a thousand essentially in order for this to. Happen and that is hard. There are a lot of mitigating factors that go into this, and even if the NBA players battling thousand. Does that mean everybody else around them or they're gonNA one thousand are they gonNA? Make the right. And ultimately guys I. Find Myself saying. Is it going to be worth it? Is it going to be worth it for the sake of. And I know that there is a lot of money at stake with the League is made a lot of money over the past five years that I think one year could be a bumper to wait and see what happens with this whole pandemic. I don't know if I necessarily agree with Adam silver's comments about you know we're. GonNa have to learn how to live through this pandemic I know we have no other choice, but to live through this playing sports through this pandemic is. Another question here guys and there are a lot of players that have underlying conditions. To one player who has an underlying condition of asthma? Maybe catches Kobe nineteen ends up in ICU. Is that worth it? Are we going to sit up here on national TV and say that's worth it. For the sake of entertainment and money I mean ultimately of we're looking at this, and we're being practical, and we're being reasonable and we're seeing teams. Being shut down leading to this or we're going to sit here and say on national TV that hey go into a bubble means I can make a case. That could be safer odd. Staffers allowed to go home. There's a lot of moving pieces here Stephen a Smith. At the end of the day I love sports. I want to it. Come back, but we have to really ask ourselves even Ayla. What are we doing here? What are we doing? Question it question, man I'm not. I'm not being I'm not being insulting in any way because you, my boy, but you sound like a Dan political pundit on one of these gay boy. We these other cable. No, that's fine if You Sam I'm just saying that's how you said okay. That's how you sound. Okay. Let me say to you. Let me say this to you. With all due respect, j. you are on the air right now. You're getting paid. You're not working for free I. UNDERSTAND YOU'RE NOT. You're not endangering yourself because you're in a location just like I, am just like Max's molly and everybody else what I'm saying is we have to be cognizant and mindful of an economy now. I don't say mindful of that to the point that you've got the governor and you acting like the governor. And the stuff that he's been saying or other political folks that we won't get into right now under no circumstances and I'm not saying that, and under no circumstances and I'm trying to be lies, they fear or just just dismissive of the importance of life. We get that I've said to match several occasions. You do not have a definitive date upon which vaccine is going to be provided to folks in this nation or throughout. You. Don't know so the indefinite period of time you're asking people to just stay home and wait and be supported and I'm telling you plausibly speaking. That's not gonNA happen. Now let me get to maximize point about Adam silver. You know what Max. You're right to give out of Silva Credit. But but but to be a bit lighthearted here. Can we just call it what it is? Adam silver was watching I tape Adam silver hurt. What the Hell I said yesterday he trying to scare people to stand the bubble. That's what that's about Adam cells is laying. Cats knows me. Don't sit up there and contribute to the situation getting worse. Don't sit up there and try to get outside the bubble or try to squeeze people in the bubble. I'll have to revisit that conversation y'all know what I'm talking about here Adam. Still the NBA is basically letting people know. Yeah, okay. We got a bubble atmosphere. You know why we got that bubble atmosphere. Let's put forth. Do Diligence to make sure that we under the. The restrictions all in an effort to elevate the level of safety protocols that we've implemented, so we don't have a significant spike on our hands Adam. Silver spheres just like anybody would sit with fear that these brothers Ain't think last three weeks to a month being away from loved ones I. Don't believe it I believe is a legitimate concern and I think that it was very smooth old, but Adam silver to come out and make sure he let everybody understands look man. This season could end up being canceled. If y'all handle this right, he said the neck Cottam message, and I think it's going to be received to something. Max GotTa jump in Brooklyn. Yeah go ahead and he's glad Jack. I'll be real quick Max Stephen. You call me a political pundit I'm talking as a human being. My Man I'm talking is a person I'm not talking to as a political pundit, so you can sit up here. Say All those things you actually agree with me that if things get certain point, you have to pull the plug and all I'm saying is the question was. Are you more or less concerned and I'm going in the more and more and more direction, because it's hard to navigate all the untargeted things. Things that can happen throughout this process, that's all I'm saying you actually agreed with me and I would know what I'm saying. Number, turn and what I'm saying. Yes, but what I'm saying in return just like you're concerned about it I have concerns to. If we want to be serious about it, we can do that, but I'm trying to make is that you have people who are home who are going to be unemployed who are going to lose their jobs who are going to have their quality of life? And you went are both you hold on you and I both come from a community where that's pretty close to death in a lot of people's art, and you notice ring that we took. It's a consideration as well. I'm not trying to say that it's not a reason to because. You. Can't ignore. It. Your. Things. You're talking about two separate things here when? Going Max. Not One! That you say if anyone if anything happens to anyone that risk wasn't worth taking I. Know There's this sense that human life has infinite value, but in fact, if something bad happens to to people, we feel worse than if it happens to one, so in fact, we recognize it doesn't have infinite value because two times infinity. Who's the same things infinity? But we feel worse when it happens to more people, so we do accept what we think of as acceptable. Acceptable risks now. What's your threshold for that? What's your tolerance? If anything if someone eventually passes away from Corona, virus contracts it in the NBA, and by the way, a population that large when you look at the general population the United States. It's possible that that happens. Does that mean the risk wasn't worth taking among a bunch of consenting adults I think many would disagree with you about that now. You don't know the results in advance, maybe if you. You knew in advance that it was going to happen. You'd say don't do it probably, but you don't know any dance. That's the nature of risk, but Stephen. A your threshold for Risk is I. Think as much of the American public's for too high and the reason I mainly. That's because of irresponsible leadership. In this country. We were everyone's like. How can we stay closed? How long have we stay close thing? We were late to close. We are early to. To Open, and the government has not taken care of the population that's pay taxes into the system, their whole lives the way it has in other countries, the way other countries governments have taken care of population, so it is a bad excuse agree. Sit here and say hey, poor folk and working class folk WANNA get back to work. No, these are the Times. The government is supposed to take care of that, and they're not doing it and as an. Excuse to old growth. After polls late because it's an occasion you got to at Max, I say this to you I swear I swear to go I swear I'm being respectful. I mean no disrespect when I say that you know something Max. That's easy for you to say. That's easy for you to say because here's the reality of the situation. What I'm saying that I'm not talk. I'm not saying that you're wrong. I'm saying that's not reality I'm dealing with reality I'm dealing with reality for segment of this population. We're literally staring in the face of disenfranchised folks, rating the streets of America and being assisted by those who don't. Don't who are not disenfranchised and have not been disenfranchised because of how agreed just we have been as a.

"The owners you had no leak. You have no players sue the way. I see it. The owners have to let in the League should stay out but let me ask you this up question. Who is the League that you speak of? So I mean because here's my point to you and thanks for your take on it. My my point. Is that the League is the owners. I mean Roger. Goodell is a figurehead for the owners paid substantially by NFL owners to represent the wants and needs of NFL owners. Like they pay his his paycheck. So I'm not sure who were saying. Should stay out of it. I mean in fact if the. Nfl is talking about it because it's something that it least collectively as being brought up in a way that it is something that's being presented to owners by owners. There is no nfl sort of hierarchy over thing over everything that rules the world and the owners live in their their little books and the the little moments the collective of owners like Voltron in their own little individual robots. They come together. They have one person that commissioner that they pay. They voted for that they hired. That represents the league as a whole so. The League is only in the owner's business because other owners wannabe and other owners business like there is no league versus owners in this situation. I take your take on. Espn radio we'll keep taking your take on it in the meantime while you guys can chime in on the Rooney rule triple eight say. Espn eight eight eight seven nine. Three seven seven six.

"We kicked off the list. Jimmy Butler at number fifteen number. Fourteen is the answer to our trivia question this all-star. Nbp has six all star appearances since entering the League in twenty eleven. So who could be? Listen next I take the prime time. Players ranking is Kyrie Irving despite only playing twenty games a season irving recorded two fifty point games one of four players this season with multiple such games putting on a show. It's just after being drafted first overall out of Duke. He has won rookie of the year in NBA title and an Olympic gold medal irving puts it up talk player number fourteen nets guard Kyrie irving all right. You heard a number fourteen kyrie Irving Max Kellerman. You are up first. One word to describe Kyrie radio active careers radioactive look. I've said he's the most skillful player in the history of basketball. I don't mean he has the wisdom as to no winter deploy his skills. How much of it? And when that that wisdom he does not yet have to the extent that some of the greatest players ever had but skills wise I when you include the handles the shot the finishing in the paint. What does he do? Passing appeasing great on the offense then a skillful a player as ever existed so yes a lot of power there. But what radioactive actually means? Is You have an unstable nucleus. If you harness that energy you have you know nuclear energy which can be an incredibly good thing and Lebron. James was able to harness that energy and help us. Kyri to beat the warriors game seven at Oracle the year the warriors. One seventy three games but left without someone who knows how to harness that energy and that includes Kyrie himself he can have a destructive kind of instability can have a of the nucleus of the team can have a destructive a deleterious effect on the team. I give you I the Celtics and then the Brooklyn Nets. Both in both instances. You took a talent like reports the team and they actually got better. That should never happen. Incredibly powerful but not fully stable enough to really harness that power. All the time radioactive. Well thank you. Dr Phil Kelemen appreciate that psychological breakdown. I'm so touched by it. My word would be special. Ed because the brother is special is not just that he's averaging twenty seven. There are a lot of good basketball players in the NBA. Very few are great. He's one of the great ones. Then you take into account the fact that he is a showstopper. He is box office. Kyrie Irving you walk through the turnstiles to watch this show that his brother is capable of putting on as you said in the past. He might have the greatest handle in the history of basketball. This is a league. Dentist at odds. Ahah Thomas Alan Iverson. Nate tiny archibald excetera. And you might say that Kyri Irvine has the greatest handle in history about. Let me not forget Chris Paul to all right still Kyrie Irving is that Konadu radioactive and all of that stuff you can use debt. My response would beat the. Boston situation is an example. He didn't handle a lot of things in terms of personal life so well that particular year. No doubt about that last year you walk into a new situation new guys Kenny. Atkinson with somebody that they like. But a lot of guys didn't believe in and should've then believe should have been the head coach and Lo and behold he is gone. Jot Von was your interim coach for two games. He was but he ain't going be the damn head coach. The Brooklyn Nets next season. It'll probably be tied Lou or more Jackson Tyler with beaver front runners if they're smart and so when you look at it from that perspective we talk about the Brooklyn Nets and what the expectations are. It's the combination of Kevin Durant with Kyrie Irving. He is special is the ideal. Could he have work? Things out with. Lebron stayed in Cleveland. Yes but deliver them from getting a championship. Noah did not they WANNA title? He's been right because by the way and the two finals that whole wait a minute into two finals that he was there. The average twenty seven and twenty nine respectively. If I remember correctly he was that elite. Okay so when I look at him. I'm saying Yeah. You could say radioactive. I can't summarily pooh-poohed that I get all that but the bottom line is this brother is so special talent. He is box office. You walk through the turnstiles to watch him. He's electrifying. He's skilled and by the way he's the champion too. We can't forget all of that. I think wrestle as you surp- Radioactive Lebron. Lebron knew how to harness. That material knew how to harness the energy and focus it. That's what I'm saying Stephen A. Absent Lebron presence or a coach. Who REALLY BUYS INTO? He's going to have a negative effect on the team. We've seen it too often and that should never happen because you say that. I've sat here and said he might have the best handles of all time. I took it much further than that Stephen A. Even in this segment I think he might be the most skillful offense of player of all time off to you are skilled because on the one hand you have to acknowledge the handles might be the best. Everett's right up there. It's it's not number one and now of all those players with handles who could shoot. Light Cavalry. Well then you go Steph Steph. Could certainly question in the paint like Kyrie will let me ask you this question to give you the answer in the segment. You're the same. God Max Kellerman. That pointed out that it's like you saying about Lebron harnessing that you also said that Lebron could have done a better job to keep Kyri from leaving to begin with as well so what about radio. Active materials hard to handle brother. All right. That's consistent. We're radio then. Okay by the Way Guy. Special radioactive a Kyrie made news yesterday because he said that he wants Kemba one on one. Obviously we know. He took his job on the Celtics. So we'll up to discuss that at later. Date to some interest by him. There should be televised car. Reverses put data with Taiwan put put put thought TV. Stephen you can do play by play on zoom. I'm there for all of it. Gets you access to licensed agents twenty four seven which means that? Geico is always there for you. If only everyone was always there for you like your wife when you forget your keys at work. And you get my text. I am looking for the spare Hausky. Maybe I can get through. The window. Turns OUT THE ALARM WORKS. It works fast. You should probably call me Back Guy. Go always there for you with savings and twenty four seven access to licensed agents obviously episodes seven and eight aired last night and who better to break it down our friend. The Great Michael Willmann joining us now. Always good to see you. Michael I know that Max Stephen. I cannot wait to get into this with you but Michael just for a little context here assuming most people know you're Chicago native you know Michael Jordan you know these. Both teams intimately. I want the fells to win on this too. But what has surprised you so far about the Docu series. Well Molly did little bits and pieces. That have surprised. Lisa for starters like Jerry Krause telling Phil Jackson Eighty two and you still not coming back. I. I don't think I knew that in real time. And even though I knew about the kinds of drama drip by drip drip. I think what has surprised me even in reliving. It is the amount of drama that bulls had to manage by the Bulls. Let's talk about two different teams almost in those six championships but Phil Jackson and Michael Jordan were the real managers. I mean Jerry Krause while he put the team together managing the daily drama. I mean the the dentist Robin Drama alone could have been a fulltime job for somebody but then you had you had all sorts of things like how many shots and whose team was how many minutes played the things that normally confront basketball team. You have these massive things whether it was dealing with Jerry Krause bringing Tim Floyd another coach into the team. While Phil Jackson is successfully leading them to championships and krause wanting to break up the team in the drama between Scottie. Pippen and Jerry Krause and Michael Jerry Custom Phil Jackson Jury. Cross you just episode after episode. Michael losing his father being murdered during the time coming back. There's just so much drama that teams don't face anymore. I don't know the any successful team has faced it and managed it quite like those guys did Michael Will. It is always on an privilege to have my big Bro on the show. His listened if you want to know anything about Michael Jordan from a media perspective shot obviously would be first on the list. I can make a legitimate argument that Mike will bond is second on that list maker. Damn show before me. Let me let me ask you this question. Watching these watching the first eight episodes who looks the worse in this Docu series? You got people complaining about Jordan. I love what I'm seeing from him and his candor but other people have been critical people have been critical of Scottie. Pippen have been critical of Isaiah..

"Espn eight eight eight seven nine. Three seven seven six. If you don't think that the cowboys should do this then I want to know what you think. They should do with the quarterback position. Because I'm not gonNA look at this and vacuum if you think they should let deck walk then. Who should be the starting quarterback for the cowboys? I want that answer. It's speaking of starting quarterbacks Kirk cousins somebody that frankly Outnegotiated everybody he did use his leverage we talked about using leverage earlier. He got himself into a fully guaranteed contract out today. He's been given an extension on that guaranteed two days prior to the start of free agency. He gets going into the last year of his deal. Another big extension that lowers his cap number and gives him sixty six million dollars over two years including sixty one million guaranteed at signing so he lures is number and gets even more money. He keeps playing chess while everybody else is playing checkers. In the meantime Mike Greenberg Join Max Stephen to talk about the long-term money in the big deal. For Kirk cousins Kirk cousins needs to be credited for his brilliance. The man you know. He doesn't win too many playoff games. I think he's only one one in his career You know half the time. He doesn't make the playoffs yet. He positioned himself to get a guaranteed eighty four million dollars over three years a couple of years ago and now he's got a two year extension so he finds a way to make money. I don't know whether it's him or whether it's eight his agent. He is a very very nice guy very very likable guy. Smart and a really decent quarterback. I certainly wouldn't call him a winner but somehow some way he manages to make sure he gets his numbers and he gets his money props to them. Can I? Can I say very quickly macadamia nut in but the one piece of this? That really surprised me and there'll be a lot of surprise around the League is that you know who really likes him and thinks he's a nice guy. Stephen is Kyle Shanahan. The coach in San Francisco and a lot of people were looking at one more year of cousins. Give Garoppolo one mayor to prove he's worth what they've given him. Cousins would wind up in San Francisco so the fact that he gets a two year extension. Minnesota takes that off the table and I guess it does despite everything. You're hearing put the Brady possibility in San Francisco back on. Well Greenie. Let me say this real quick before Max then I will tell you that if you call Shanahan and the San Francisco forty nine. I don't blame you for not making that move. Offer not pushing to make something like that happen. In light of how kirk cousins ended up performing in the postseason against them. Obviously it wasn't entirely. His fault was protected. Enough Dalvand cook was held in check. Didn't have much to work with that particular. Adam wasn't one hundred percent okay. Stefan digs couldn't get off the going up against an elite San Francisco defense. And you gotta take all of that into consideration. But if I've just fresh off performance we I've completely annihilated and gated anything that you WANNA do. I then cannot turn around and the off season and a quiet you even. If it's at the expense of Jimmy Garoppolo not when your is the freshest thing in my mind when you want I mean I think teams are more likely just to look at who they think going forward is the best man for the job and cousins has that kind of stink on them where you don't believe he'll rise to the occasion. He did a couple of times this year. And if you can get rid of that. He's in good stead around the league but I want to look at this cousins extension and look at the contract. Tannahill side and the contract that Garoppolo sign the guaranteed money is not like Carson Wentz and Jared Goff and those guys forget about annual average. It's guaranteed dollars that we're talking about and those are smart teams. If you may even be better off with a quarterback who's good enough to get the job done and is not going to cost you a hundred plus million and a guarantee he's going to be sixty million guarantee who's good enough to get the job done other than the guy who makes you believe. There's more upside because in the end are Carson Wentz and Jared Goff is the production in fact especially when you need it most is it different than Tanna hill or Garoppolo or kirk cousins because some of these guys are getting one hundred million at some of these guys are getting sixty. And it's what John Elway Seguin when he didn't WanNa throw away money on Oz wiler he said. There should be a middle class of quarterbacks. This is the upper middle class of quarterbacks cousins and Garoppolo and Tannahill. The problem is the quarterback and understand their leverage. No the real fact. Which is if you don't have at least a decent quarterback you might end up with the trash quarterback. Yes you could go into the draft and get lucky. But if you're the vikings what other option do you have? If you're the titans you looked around and said you know what I'll take tannahill for three years at a just an astronomical amount of money for the next three years I'll take that over some level of uncertainty. Uncertainty is what drives the quarterback market? Not The player that you have Jay in California chiming in Jay. We want your take. What's your take on Jay Jay? We Gotcha we're trying buddy. What's your take on Jay? You're on let's go. I'm sorry I mean I'm I'm a cowboy fan and listening to so-called experts and callers. It's like they didn't Dallas play last year. That isn't collected all ample opportunity to step up last year and close gangs and fail overthrowing unto throwing inaccurate passes. He got a lot of garbage yard. Games last year. Second-half no point like Chicago. Buffalo Green Bay people want to blame the defense. He had games where the opposing offense put up. Thirteen twelve and seventeen and that could not beat them. Okay so he's eggs who coaches and four years. He's had to office coordinator coordinates and four years. He cannot make all the NFL throws he can't he can't game adjust so. J. Let me ask you then if not deck. If you don't WanNa overpay Dacca's he's just not worth the money and give you the option of overpay. Dak or take Andy Dalton for the next two years what are you taking take? Andy Dalton I would. I would sign Tom. Brady and draft a quarterback and and try to develop them. Because this is this isn't A Cleveland this isn't Arizona. We want super bowls and Jerry has made a history of overpaid over making bad deals or overpaying quarterback rob receivers also deals and I did. He's taking his time with with this with this situation and not overpaying. Don't do we get the Tony. Romo thing Tony Romo did not work. He was extremely overpaid. He loved them. It was why duplicate that mistake. I love the concept. Hey Look J. I love the passion. I love the concept and I love what you're saying. Insure if you're telling me that you're going to suddenly turn around and you're GONNA get yourself. Tom Brady then yeah. I mean fine. If you'd rather have Tom Brady for this year. Then I totally get that. I'm not here to question that part of the decision. I don't think Tom Brady is really in the cards to go any of these places so now all of a sudden to me it really does become a question of Andy Dalton. I'm using Andy General Concept for specific quarterbacks available so it becomes about Andy Dalton or take your pick is it going to be Jameis Winston or is it going to be Marcus. Mariota still have to look at all of these across the board and make real decisions about what you wanted the quarterback position when you have to realize that you may have absolutely nothing there. That's better for you. I think that's a realistic situation. That now everybody has to look at it across the board. We're looking at it like it's it's suddenly. Dak Or you know I'm GONNA turn around and get Brady well. What if it's deck or Mario would've it's Dak or Jamison what it's deck or. I don't think people feel as good about that situation and I think that's a part of it. Everybody's forgetting coming up to massive names in the NFL or on the move to household names have been treated today. We'll get the latest on it but first every night. Local police departments across America hundreds of calls from burglar alarms the vast majority of the time. They have zero idea if the alarm is real. If there's a crime going on or not all the alarm company could tell them as quote. The motion sensor went off simplisafe home security is different if there's a break in simply safe users real video evidence to police an eyewitness account of that crime that means police dispatch.

"Two nine three seven seven six in the meantime Max Stephen debating what Lebron sitting out tonight says about the proof that Lebron needs load management. Moving forward does not care. I want everybody is match. Does Not care about the paint customer. He doesn't care about the fans he's always talking about winning. Tipton. Do you understand that. There are people and I'm not going to mention any names because then I get Cruz accused of being so cruel. So I'm not going to bring up any nasal but there are people who season not only ended in mid April. But you know what Max they knew. It was the mid April and October and still engaged at load management. Kinda Damn Sense. Does that make you gets no wait a minute wait a minute you get paid to play the games this is why when your father use whatever they find you one eighty second of your salary. Could you ain't supposed to do that now? I got view. I don't consider this low management. That is an injury that Lebron has sustained. That is an injury that linnet as managing. That's not load management. That's you hurting. There's a different but when you're healthy excuse me get your behind out there and play. That's Pessoa let me say something you know why. And you know why. Old-school dudes have a problem with it and they should because they had to play you know why they had to play because they get paid so if we want to be honest about it reason why these dudes talk about load management and they don't mind advertise low management because they know they're gonNA get paid if they don't if I did it with everyone associate what I'm saying. He was this if you are in this old time. That's us. Listen Max if somebody if I'd sit up there right if you have the license to Miss Work and get paid. What's the incentive to really really play? Well come on now. The season even really be eighty two games. What do we talk about? But it isn't it contributes to the dollar that they get paid. It doesn't get paid that. But here's the thing. Coupon Clippers is Kawhi Leonard responsible for the fans of other teams in a business sense. Yes in a competitive sense. No and business should not influence competition if they want to change the rules to do it. Change no no business in competition all of my estimates albeit the twelfth. If I'm a clippers fan I'm not. I'm a Lakers fan. Want Lebron to load manage. If I'm a clippers fan if I run the clippers if I coached the clippers. I'm thinking I don't care about every other teams fans. I care about clippers fans. You know what they care about winning a championship. So I'm going to manage the team the best way. I know how to win a championship. And you know what that means. Resting Collide. When some people think shouldn't be arrested. I think the same thing lies to the lake. And I'm saying to you Max is that let's not bring up Kuwa- and Lebron because there's legitimate injury they are suffering. We got that you speak. As if a hundred percent less than short it going to be one hundred percent. But make sure you max you understand that you have no problem if a dude in November goes like this. It's November I. I'm taking off the first two before because I need. You don't profile with injury. One of them. I'm saying you AB- accusing you. Mets are making a flat-out accusation. Based on your words that if a dude one hundred percent and it's the first week of the season and he's already planted off the takeoff week three. You have no problem with that. That makes it a step further. It shouldn't be left up to the player. The team should be responsible enough. For example the seventy sixers. We talking about them in the next room. For example the seventy sixers in the beginning of the season should have a comprehensive plan. Yes Max but that's because he's always hurt. He's never healthy manager. That's exactly. Would you do the playoffs? Watch Lebron James. He's perfectly healthy. This okay just a number of minutes. He's played in his career. And how important is the team either? Been Load managing him all years. So hopefully he's got full take. That's what I would have been managing minute. What's that about locking up the one seat for? Here's thing if you're worried about going to denver or something like that. I understand that you have to adjust what you're doing that. But if you're talking about the clippers play in the same television market alleged crystallized this for everybody. Max If you're talking about a minutes management or minutes vish action. I don't consider that load management. I've never fretted over that. What I'm saying is missing game sitting on a bench. Chill with a pseudo..

"The meantime as we continue having this big conversation about drew brees where he ranks. Let's remember that's not the only quarterback in the news today because we got a new mock draft from Mel Kiper Junior. I know I'm obsessed over these things I get it. I understand it but that mock draft had a shocker in as a tongue of a low of going to a team we haven't seen in a matchup we haven't seen before he joined Max Stephen and Molly and they talked about the mock draft decisions. The MELKER made checking out. Joe Boroughs the big story. But I need to talk to you about too because I pay closer attention to Detroit these days. Why is he moving to potentially go to the Lions and Matt Patricia Squad? How come you haven't moving up todd? And I have an unwritten rule. You can't project trades but you can also put guys where they could be slotted we're makes sense and Jeff. Okuda the cornerback Ohio state. You think three that alliance for the giants. If you think about quarterback for Detroit Matthew Stafford situation with the money will trade and Willie not but if you WANNA get to. And you know. Miami's sitting at five. And you're the chargers at six or Carolina. You want to jump off your the raiders that coming up at that spot a twelve if you're the Indianapolis colts thirteen and you want to move up. Though that's the hot spots up the lines don't take him they WANNA move out. They'll get opportunities. They WanNa take him as the future heir apparent to Stafford because remember he may have medically Richard as a rookie anyway. That's a possibility there so I think the medical is good for you guys. I think he's the hot prospect April twenty third of the medical so so different ballgame. Let's be optimistic about it. Assume good I think he's going to go in the top five. I'm trying to figure out how to Hell Justin Herbert crime number five. I mean people were talking about him not being in the top ten weeks ago Mel kiper junior and all of a sudden this guy is top. Five what the hell is happened over the last few weeks I mean I didn't notice any going on. He wasn't me Stephen and that was some other analysts wasn't they always thought he was going to go that high others based on the fact that he hasn't had as we said that wild type games as a runner as a throw or even though he's enormously gifted that's fine bottomline is when you talk about the awesome talent incredibly intelligent not as instinctive as you would necessarily want but if it can come together in the NFL. You got something in lesser quarterbacks Justin. Herbert there aren't even close to his talent level. Have Gone in the top ten to twelve. So you'll get the Miami Dolphins. The chargers Essay Raiders Coats. Maybe moving up. I gotta believe when we get April Twenty Third Justin Herbert's guaranteed to be one of the first six picks. Now I want to talk about my New York football giants so Kuda. Is that just an issue of him being you think the best player on the board because I think Isaiah Simmons is an overall talent? But also what's his name wills? Jack Wills the offensive tackle when you look at what the giants done on the old line in recent years spent a lot of draft capital and money and Free Agency to fix. The line finally seems to start working and I look at the colts in what they did and all of a sudden. They're a juggernaut on the line. Why do you have a cornerback going to the giants? When you've got to get one of the top three player picking four. You GotTa get a guy who's probably on your board is a three or maybe two will because a lot of teams aren't necessarily sold on borough is the number one guy in the draft number two guy you feel like you're going to get any leak. It's not wills wills Max's not when a top five players in this draft the right tackle from Alabama Isaiah Simmons. There's mixed opinion on because you don't have a defined position okay. He's versatile guy but he's not define linebacker slow as much value as they used to but I like them but I think there's teams their ascendancy worthy of being that high pick. Okuda is the lockdown corner. He's going to be expected to be should. Abs wight Gilmore both alliance at three and the giants at four need him. He's GonNa be when all said on one of the top three or four players in distress everybody's board. That's why I put in where I did and I think that is also a hotspot. You're giants Max for that trade up if say the Lions Take Okuda at three. Don't take the quarterback or the quarterback doesn't go there. That's the spot for somebody to go ahead of Miami and get to. What if he clears everything medically we should have had chase young? Let me ask you this. According to the Fort Worth star-telegram Burrow says he has the Leverage. When it comes to the bengals people are saying he should pull an ally manning. What are you hearing with that situation? The number one overall spot well first of all the bashing of the bengals the bengals have been to the Super Bowl. Four teams in the NFL have never even been to a super bowl. Bengals have been two two against the forty niners lost wondering Kenny Anderson area then boomer Esiason they had success with Carson Palmer. They went to a planet got hurt in a playoff game and then any and went to the playoffs. Okay so this notion the bengals have been just horrible and losing all the time and never even getting anywhere. It's ridiculous so I think for Joe Borough. Now he's going to be the number one pick he's going to be a Cincinnati bengals and they said we'll move on from there. What the hell is everybody talking about? How Joe Borough? I mean I saw on. Espn DOT COM Joe. Borough might have leverage with the Cincinnati. Bengals I mean excuse me. They've got the number one overall pick right. What is he going to say? I'm not gonNA play football of you. Picked me. He got no. I don't think it's going to end up being that way. They brought John Elway and of course he had a baseball option. He threatened but that was never doubted. Keep in mind. Ernie course was gonNA sign John Elway. The owner made the early. Of course. He didn't make that deal. They were on their way to getting an agreement with John. Elway didn't happen during the river sitting there and yet rothlisberger in that draft the other quarterbacks that were right there in terms of grade with. Eli here you have to with the medical situation and just in Herbert with some mixed opinion and Barrow had the one great year and he maximize. He should just be happy guys. He's number one because doing this year. He had a sixth round grade. Well Well Mel. You may think he should be happy but the fact is he's talking like a guy who's trying to not get drafted by Cincinnati and there are lots of people who think too is the best quarterback in this draft clearly. He has a deeper resume. I'm surprised to hear you not think this is a big deal because from where I'm sitting. Which is clearly not as close as you. It seems like a really big deal. Since when does a guy who's like we all know where he's going to get picked? Save this kind of stuff about. I can't remember it. But number one overall pick talking about the franchise. It's obviously going to take them like this. Well keep in mind guys. You're looking at a quarterback who a lot of people were saying things for him and now he's commenting a lot of things that are being asked of him. He said he would be a Bengal and he said that early on then you start to think about it a little bit. You hear negativity people bring up. He's got all these quarterback Steve Parkhouse. Ke's no go there Carson Palmer. So he's just reacting to all these people throwing things at him. Well you don't WanNa go there. You got your the number one so I think it's just Joe perv reacting that. I have not yet heard. Joe Borough take this the fine stance that you're talking about until I do. I'm not gonNA worry about it. It's just bluster out there. But when it comes April twenty third the Bengals feel. He's a franchise quarterback and they deem number one over to and feel like he's worthy of being taken over the defensive end Jason. I'M GONNA say this guy's chase you would have had multiple Saxon those last two or three games and been a game recor. Then you could have made a case that the bengals we better off taking chase young and we're in a better quarterback maybe in the second round brought to you by Wendy's proud sponsor of the twenty twenty John r wooden 's wouldn't men's and women's player of the year awards. We'll keep all the conversation going about quarterbacks but not young ones no no no no drew brees because drew brees is coming back to the question is. What's that mean for the saints? Where do you have them in the NFC we want your take triple eight say espn eight? Eight seven.

"Two nine three seven seven six. What's your Brady shitty retire? Go back to the Patriots. Go to the chargers. Maybe go to cough raiders to say that and we will do that throughout the course of the morning. We'll get there or the afternoon I should say but this morning I take was fired up about the greatness of Patrick Mahomes as we continued to react from the super bowl and marcus spears. Join Max Stephen and they tried to figure out could mahomes reach a Michael Jordan level with his career mahomes reach. MJ level. Hell now let me get that out the way right now. I don't think any football player can can reach. MJ level because football too violent physical of sport for you to sustain a certain level of excellence not to mention the fact that the ultimate team sport with this entirely too much assistance as required. Patrick Mahomes look absolutely human on Sunday. But that's not the issue. What if he he was absolutely brilliant? tyreek hill who was dropping passes and Miko Hogmanay was dropping passes or Sammy. Watkins was dropping passes. You see in the sport of basketball. Aw MJ could sit up there. And say you know what I'm sick and tired of y'all move out the dam where give me the ball and I will take you there but in football. You always need som- I saw body else. That's the difference so it's not really about the greatness of Patrick Mahomes. Nobody is questioning that. It's not really about how Herculean he could be in terms of some of his accomplishments as efforts etc etc.. It's that so much. Assistance is needed to assist in his individuals awesome. Obviously everybody needs somebody for team success. Michael Jordan needed his team. Pippen and Robin and everybody's to win championships. But in terms of the individual individual greatness by virtue of it being the sport of basketball he could go out there and do everything perfect example is when he dropped sixty three on Boston Austin in the second year and Larry Bird called them God in gym shorts. Okay they got swept that series they lost but you still a new Michael Jordan is coming. Football doesn't allow you that nested. Of course football doesn't allow a guy like Jordan to dominate at the game as Jordan dominated basketball. Neither is baseball. Like you're never going to have. If that's the criteria. Forget it. What are we talking about? That is how I hear. There's no baseball ballplayer. That could be Michael Jordan because baseball you hit when your time is up in the lineup. If the ball hit now you can't about the individuals there's the the trumps numbers of the enough like Babe Ruth once upon a time but he could. He was playing against guys. who had day jobs? You know very barnes once Barry Barnes on the stuff turned it into a joke but even then that one player doesn't guarantee you success. That's different in basketball. So if that's the criteria they'll never be Jordan any sport. What I'm saying is this? The answer is yes he can be the M J of Football. The Jordan of something does not just mean. You're the best you can be the best in your sport and not be Jordan. Tom Brady is the goat. He's never the Jordan of football. Because one or two years here there you might say not only is he go but he's actually actually the best. He's also better than Rogers your or something like that. But there were always at least multiple quarterbacks who said they're all around the same or this guy's better that guy's better and it really is team dependent so it accrues to the adds to their greatness. Just because you're the you're the best does not make you. The Jordan Jordan. Means that there is distance this between you and everybody else. But there's more to it than that because Lebron did that. Lebron actually achieved that like in his prime which was not that long Ogle there was Lebron and there was everybody else way down here Jordan. More than that Jordan's also. He hit the League as a rookie. Twenty Ninety eight points a game. Then he got hurt. Second season came back. gave the Celtics Sixty three by his his third season in a hand checking in league he was averaging on the season through seven points a game he was better than magic and bird his third season and everyone knew it but no one wanted to say because because he needed a championship to validate it and then he went out and got that and then got five more basically in a row. Okay that's Jordan. Let's look look it. Mahomes mahomes hits the ground as a rookie. Okay as a rookie. He doesn't play it all right just Jordan plant a second season but the first time he gets the ball he throws fifty fifty touchdowns against twelve interceptions gets to the AFC championship game. Should've gotten to the Super Bowl. First Time he touches the ball. He's already it's even ahead of Jordan Spacey's already obviously the best in the business. Obviously there's no close to him last year and he falls it up this year. He gets hurt. He comes back the touchdown interception ratio sustain and and he takes his team to win the Super Bowl. He's already been validated by the championship. There is Patrick Mahomes. Where's the next best guy? There's there's no one close mahomes is better than everyone else. He's more exciting than everyone else. He's already got the championship to validate. No you can't influence a game. Like Jordan did in basketball two different sport but in terms of who is the NJ of their sport. Patrick Mahomes is the closest thing we've seen okay. So basically what you're saying is we compare Pat Mahomes to every because I live four four the audience watching we just compare and Patrick Mahomes to the quarterbacks. We're saying based on what Chris and Patrick Mahomes is like the going to be the best football player to ever play the game. That's sure he's already on the highest level. So that's that's over Jerry Rice Lawrence Taylor Berry. Sounds like that's who you say a new. That's who you saying. Excuse the ejection. Isn't it true that you already said that. Patrick Mahomes is the greatest football football player. I know best greatest accomplishments. He's operating. This is the highest. We've seen a player play the answer to you. Yes because a quarterback has more or influence over the game. If Lt was a quarterback wasn't he's kind of interrupted mark. Because I wanted to make sure that Mac the best would mahomes. David Walk Us. New said Rogers was the best. I'd seen mahomes. MJ level mean. You're going to sustain being the best player for majority of of your tenure as as the player in the league and you're second. You're you're ready to give it to him and say he's on Mj's level when it comes to football. I'm I'm saying this. No I wouldn't phrase it that way I'm seeing the closest thing to Mj. That football has seen. This is how went into detail. Did you watch but match. You've been around the game for a long time listener. Look I love. What pet mahomes is doing went? I'm one that say a pet mahomes the opportunity to be the greatest to ever play the game at the quarterback spot. I talk about all the football you you tell me because Michael Jordan is known as the best to ever play basketball you saying that mahomes now should be in the compensation for the best over over over every position ever play. Look Look Lt was a better football player than say Tom Bradberry. And but I can't put lt over Tom Brady because he wasn't a quarterback we can't even put Lebron on Mj's level but suddenly we wanna do that for my good Lord. Tweet me at Jason Vinson General All triple eight say ESPN ESPN radio presented by progressive insurance drivers switch and save pain average of seven hundred ninety six dollars less per year Jason Fitz. We're getting your thoughts on our our big topic of the day. The biggest topic today is one that hits home for me okay. Should Tom Brady. What should he do next season? We've asked you on a pole all adjacent fits you can vote out there. Should he retires. Should he played for the Patriots. The chargers all of this comes. Because there's this great report going out from Adam Schefter that the raiders are very interested interested in Tom Brady now. You'll know him a raiders. Fan Lifelong diehard. The panel had a lot to say about it. I've got a lot to say about Dan. Orlovsky I'M A. Let them get their word of verse. Since its first. Take so a will lead Stephen a Max and Dan Orlovsky get to this first. Because you know I've got something to say about Brady to the raiders. But first here's what they had to say about it. Jon Gruden is a guy that primarily primarily wants to focus on the run in today's Day and age clearly. A A mobile quarterback is the direction that you need to be going in. The League is sending a message. The athletes excuse me on the defensive side of the ball in this day and age are so elite that you know what if you're an immobile quarterback and then mobile quarterback Tom Brady drew brees of the world others. You respect what they've done. You know what is still capable of but in the end this stationary targets. And I just. I'm not a guy that looks at John. GRUDEN's offense and find him to be brilliant per se. I think that he's a great motivator. I think that he's his sound bites a great motivation tactics. A greater. What have you? I don't necessarily dislike what he and Mike Mayock doc or doing but I think it needs a lot more than people realize that tops and I just don't think that's the situation that the forty two year old. Tom Brady needs to be walking. Winging if Tom Brady is going to leave the New England patriots. He needs to leave for an organization a franchise A-team that says we have everything else. But this and you are that missing piece. It can't be well. We've got a multitude of pieces that are missing. But you're going to do so much to help us now. That is not the situation that he belongs. I don't think the Las Vegas Raiders. Are the team that he should be thinking about. I don't like it at all. Well it does a little bit of that Elvis at the end. Yes Tom Brady in Las Vegas. Nevertheless it's awesome that Las Vegas is getting an NFL team I think Elvis may have been a little younger than a great lie. Max is a gray line on your part one. I like it but it makes us. I love the fact that biggs getting an NFL team and the fact that John Gruden's the coach so much. When you really look at the great head coaches forget about the XS and Os for a second look at the organization and and the kind of leadership that they showed the reason that Mike Tomlin or harbaugh or anyone like that are in the running? All the time is not necessarily that they think the game like Andy Reid or bill belichick. It's that the character of great coaches right Gruden How's that team the culture that we could see headed in the right direction? They won seven games. Seven to nine thousand nine look the. NFL's NEAT NEAT leak if you're a little lucky sometimes you're ten six unluckily at least six and eight. They're within that range they're five hundred style team. Okay Tom Brady. If the ideas it Bradier belic go due to a successful head coach with a franchise. It's on the rise. got draft picks the whole thing. That's about five hundred and see what you can do. Also it's a it's it's a sexy place to play. There's going to be a lot of press around the fact that there's an NFL team in Vegas. Yes you have to compete with Patrick Mahomes uh-huh and the chiefs. Good luck to you. But you know like you're going to have to compete wherever you are was someone. I'd love to see it. I would listen. I think anybody's going to hate to see Tom Brady in Jersey other than a New England patriots. If it's going to I don't think he's going back so if it's going to you happen. There's a lot to like about the raiders. If you're good at first why do you think he's not going back to New England. I think the question is why. Would you go back to New England. I mean there's there to Stephen as point is exactly right that he needs to find a team. That is a quarterback away and New England is more than just a quarterback away major skill position issues offensive line question marks if you look at what transpired. Last year in New England it was quarterback got beat up and no one to throw the football to art so so what teams in the NFL. At least have that to offer that okay. We can protect the quarterback and we've got human beings to throw the football too and the raiders are at the top of the list. They have one of the better up and coming coming offensive lines in the NFL. So as a quarterback you're going are going to be clean. I'm going to be protected. And then do they have some weapons. We'll tyrone Williams is a really really good receiver. Darren Waller is a very good tight end. Josh Jacobs is one of the better young tailbacks in the NFL. So we can run the football we can protect and there's two weapon pieces the twelfth pick of the draft. You can even go to Tom. Brady if you're Mike May Jon Gruden go. Hey come on pick the guy you want it twelve off. PICK THE OFFENSIVE WEAPON JERRY. Judy Hinder Bugner Munira. Tom mcsherry heard talked about the depth of wide receiver at this class. So there's a lot to like now. The downside is the defense is not great. And and you gotTa play fifteen twice in the in the you like this more than the chargers because that's the other rumor we've heard the chargers. I like it more than the chargers unless the charges get offensive. Line pieces if the if the charges get too offensive line pieces whether it's via free agency or the draft then to charges his runaway because the receivers are better they gotta get hunter. Henry resigned but the defense is and I can say this is about the charges and this is not a football analysis right here but I just need to say this..

"Be on the record to say to America oracles that I still believe and Rogers Ban Man I believe in them. I believe he's GonNa show up this weekend and the football world. Just who'd be Russell won't do it either. But I believe in Ann Rogers sermon. This keeps happening. I should've gone first on the second number one lambo. I thought it was very important for the niners to have home field in the NFC because that's one home field advantage. Will you do not want to go to Lambeau this time of year. Particularly when you're facing packers team that can run the ball and play defense. But that's not why I'm going with Aaron Rogers. I shouldn't go with Aaron Rodgers. I should go with Russell Wilson. He's proven it this year more consistently even in his his last win. Aaron Rodgers was awful for a lot of that game by the way I talked about Tom. Brady and the cliff everything. Brady's not as athletic as Roger. So what happens quicker but or the fall can be steeper. Because what are you fall back on. Rogers can still move. He has a bigger but both of them. Rogers and Brady were missing receivers everywhere. You could miss a receiver and Rogers had more to work with right. Left over and under right like overthrowing and under throwing guys with the game on the line late Rogers made one of those plays that only he and maybe Patrick Mahomes in one or two guys make beautiful pass with the game on the align and just going based on faith in a guy. I have seen it like Russell. Wilson reminds me a bit of Aaron Rodgers but everything Wilson could do at their best. Rogers could do better right like as a quarterback and and I'm just going based on the fact I've still seen flashes from Rogers that tells me it's in there and if it is he can do it in a way that Russell Wilson can make no mistake. The the packers defensive stout in both these guys are correct. The mistake they're making isn't saying that going based off. Faith saying that Aaron Rodgers do one. I learned this the hard way Max Stephen Gambling thing. You can't just hope it's going to be the next hand. You can't just hope that. Oh this is going to be the time that Aaron Rodgers shows because the problem is I think that's what packers fans hoped all season long and they never necessarily got that now again. I'm not saying that the packers are GONNA lose the game by no means because I think they're more stout I think they have more weapons. But you're talking. Got A guy in Russell. Wilson who accounted for ninety five percent of his team's offense last week ninety five percent agai Russell Wilson Thirty One touchdowns Rajathi's August twenty six. He had five interceptions understandably Roger before so. This is a guy in Russell Wilson who realizes he has to put the team on his back in his entirety. I don't Wanna a here about the weather at Lambeau field. Russell Wilson played at Madison. Wisconsin and Madison is only two hours eighteen. Minutes by car from Lambeau Lambofield though I understand. Stay in that but to me. That's that's more of a product of arbitrary statistic as it is a product of his plane. Rogers that Rogers record and cold weather but product dormitory. That's a product of playing at home field. I I'm not gonNA knock Aaron Rodgers because that is a bad man like Steve Name. Yeah I'm saying Russell Wilson will outplay Eh Aaron Rodgers. I think that the packers will still win the game. But I can't sit here and blindly go by faith. Well in just say man. I let me ask you this question particularly in intimate weather which clearly clearly exists lambofield. Run game is very very important. Direct costs gone. Rishaad pennies gone proceeds gone. So basically Yemi Bee's mode I mean listen we can rave about be slowed all we want and I definitely love the energy and just the mystique did he bring the Seattle seahawks. He belongs with them right now. I I love it and I know. He's a rough ride a particular short yardage situations. He's going to do some things for you but the SEAHAWKS did win a playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles. They had seventeen seventeen carries for nineteen yards. Seventy one yard so you really really think that's going to work against Green Bay. I don't I don't think that that's going to work because you're right. The Seattle Seahawks Kate all point blank period marshawn lynch although marshawn Lynch still they'll come to the Orion the name brand. They have proven that they can't run the ball like they could with the trio monster the three headed monster at running back. But what Russell Wilson can do if he makes schedule Agile plays. What Russell Wilson can he can run the ball now while the seahawks may not have been able to Russell? Wilson still couldn't remember early on in the game down. Russell said man everybody covered. I'm just just talk and do it myself so I mean yes stephen and you're right the seahawks here we're not talking about the offerings out. That you're talking about their cattle. WanNa go back to get back to the faith in your gambling problem. Okay the clearly you coming out or something but my point is this. I'm not saying I rogers. I understand the reason that you would take Russell. Awesome Wilson Really Strip everything away. He's in his prime. And it looks like Aaron Rodgers is no longer right. And that's why because they're both in their prime. But I'll tell you there's all Russell Wilson and Russell listens a hall of Famer. He's he's a great quarterback rogers like until the home came around the best I've ever seen. Let's see mahomes keep it up. It would be one thing. If Rogers wasn't that and I was hoping I thought he had the potential but an older player who was once the best ever can still recapture glory at times. And he's done that this season. There were a couple of games earlier. In the year. Raider Aaron Rodgers looked like WHOA. That's Aaron Rodgers. He might win. MVP this year. It's not like we haven't seen in the recent past he's capable of higher heights than Russell Wilson maybe not over sixteen games plus but right now at whole yeah i. It's not. It's not blind faith but there is a faith or y'all just remember you're GONNA get in trouble if y'all keep hoping on the next one now which means hope and on and on the next game hoping that Roger's GonNa show up on the next all play. The academic progression regular season is the same as the play. Not at all so then. It's not just the next game. It's a different love. Rogers are you. Are you sitting you on National National Television and questioning the capability of Eh Rogers to step up in the moment because the moment requires. Is that what you're doing. I'm questioning Rogers capability to deliver liver in crunch time he did. We saw it against Oakland. He gave you six touchdowns he showed up. We saw it against the giants. He gave you four touchdowns he showed up soda. Max's point rodgers. Can the he looked awful against San Francisco. Would that happen with the happened to have something to do with the fact that San Francisco is an elite defense would elite front four not to mention a secondary the lead by Richard Sherman that locked receivers up in the end nobody to throw it to the possible the last time we saw Rogers Week. Seventeen the Minnesota Vikings. He did not look great. He's doing interception that. You've I've never seen Roger Stroke. I just want to say thank God he got confused. I mean let's it. Can you talk a brother me. Forgive crying out loud. He's been around for many. The NUDIE got confused as a hobby. He got to get the answers to every time you got to go all the time..

"His agent his lawyers whether it's Marghera goes or anybody else what I will. We'll say is when necessary EVA's lady and others have told me that his agents aren't getting any return phone calls. I got a problem with that. Somebody like drew. Rosenhaus might need to get in the equation because you can't convince me that you rose and housing get his phone calls with turn. Now you might not get the job but I promise you if Giro's and houses represented you in the National Football League and I'm not trying to cast any aspersions on any other agent. I'm not saying that there aren't black agents out there who can't do job as well. I'm not saying that but drew Rosenhaus the house is is I mean when it comes to television. This is the face amongst. NFL agents that you see prominently you can't convince me. He cannot get a return her phone call. It's one thing not to get a job but when you ain't even get your phone calls returned to you're not representing me. It's just that simple the other thing that I'd like to point out and Dominique how many come come to you with this it's an idea that I just thought about last night with all the noise that was made because Jay Z and a partnership with the NFL. I think Jay Z is in a position particularly right now with injuries that occurred in Indy Jacksonville Pittsburgh New York New Orleans considering the Bevy of opportunities. That's available to Colin Kaepernick alright if the NFL was fair MoD enough to do so and address it that way I think Jay z's in a position to go to Roger Goodell in the National Football League and say you know what the media is going to go out there and they're going to say this on behalf of college cabinet. Maybe we should as the League as well. Maybe it's something that's the position that we should take that. Excuse me this is something that needs to be addressed again. It's one thing for him not to have a job but for him not to even get a tryout when it's clear that he wants to play when it's clear why he hasn't been allowed to play we see the Bevy of injuries that take place not to mention the fact he hasn't violated any laws legally he has violated any. NFL bylaws and even the president of the United States who stole the Narrative Tiv- that Colin Kaepernick was trying to dress police brutality racial inequality etc the president of the United States who use it as political fall for his his own for his own purposes has turned around and even he said publicly CNN Colin Cabinet back into the League so all of those things taken taking into consideration to me the NFL has no excuse more than any other Tom since this whole ordeal went down to not insist publicly that Colin Kapernick should be given a chance the league should be able to stand up and say that some agent needs to be working to phone and agent that can get their phone recalls return. If you get your phone calls returned you represent and Colin Kaepernick back I take Roz Max Stephen here Dominique Foxworth joins us again dominique when we last left Stephen was basically bringing upset here's an opportunity for Jamesy in an ambassador role perhaps to talk off to the NFL and say there should be some sort of public statement that Colin Kaepernick should be in the NFL or have the opportunity or beginning of these calls to be in the NFL and he was asking for your response so I think Stephen as point that the NFL should come out and make a statement is a good one and I do expect that I would have that expectation of the League in the League office where I disagree with Stephen a slightly is that somehow it's Jay z's responsibility or Jay Z's obligation to do this because to me and this is not to Steven A. necessarily as much as to a culture or not you didn't say does his responsibility but the expectation with Jay z could do that so I think it would be great. If Jay Z you did that and I fully support him but I wanNA take it another step further and say that it's frustrating and disappointing and again. This is not directly but it's that the country has at large is is that the expectation is that the people who have been victims. Frankly of centuries of racism are also the same people who are responsible for fixing it so we're in a position now where the people who have benefited the most billionaires they have benefited the most from the structure of this country like those are are the people who I have the expectation to step up. How much money do you need to feel safe enough to do the right thing? They know that what they're doing to Colin Kaepernick is wrong. They know wait and they won't turn they won't turn around and step up and do the right thing because for whatever reason they need to make even more money. That's the people who have yeah role models in this situation. They WANNA be role models dominate they are. I would challenge you on that. I think you're wrong with what you just said and let me explain as a person desk sat across the negotiating table from these owners highly intelligent do that you are incredibly accomplished not the business of football not just what goes on on the plane few you know damn well you sat across from them owners and they didn't have a clue that they were wrong. They didn't believe they were wrong wrong. They thought that anything that they did restrictive as engaged in terms of engaging marginalization not giving plays what they've earned what they deserved or whatever you know damn well. You sat across from those owners. They didn't have the slightest clue. Let it they were all so I'm transferring. I'm transferring that to call a cabinet by simply saying when they view him and you talk about wrong and there is I'm telling you some some owners that ob spoken to is incredulous as it may've they've see in their eyes. They felt like they were done wrong because he was never protesting against them. He was protesting against society but was willing to cost them dollars to make his point now. We all disagree with what understand them think that way. I'M GONNA get out away and letting Mex- talk doc in a second but there's a slight distinction that I wanNa make from what you just said. I don't think the owners don't know that they're wrong. I think that they have a justification for being wrong. I think they know no what they doing is not okay but they justified. They rationalize it in their mind because they convinced themselves that it is going to hurt their bottom line and that is not okay okay in my mind. I think you're both talking about the intention and effect. Let me start with this point because I have two other points. I WANNA make one. There are thirty two owners thirty. One of them are white unless people believed that black people are intrinsically inferior at making money then there's a reason to Dominique's point that thirty one of them white it's it is based on the history of our country three which is rooted in our original sin as a country and the propagation of that system or the effects of the original sin are still being felt which is ironically what what Colin Kaepernick is really when you reduced down to its basic element protesting and why he doesn't have a job because of the present power structure. That's what do Steven it. You bring up that the intention of the owners is is not to have him parador political speech but even if I accept the intention is simply their bottom line intention attention is not a good enough. Excuse the effect is more important so for example so for example. There may have been a small business owner in the south in the sixties white white business owner in the south. You know who says I would serve African American customers but I would take their money but I'm in a community where that would alienate and most of my patrons were many and I would wind up losing money what the courts have found since then is that's not a good enough excuse so why is it a good enough excuse for the NFL. That's two three said it was who is saying is all. I don't think it is all I was saying. Is Your your continuous perpetual argument about parody political speech right up saying their positions. We don't have political speaking to make money and what what I'm saying is if you know what I'm saying which is by the way standing for national anthem whether people like it or not because they think it's the position. It's actually a statement if kneeling is protesting estimate you're making a statement then standings also making a political statement so if they include that ceremony.

He scored fifty one points in the warriors win over the warriors of the wizards and didn't play didn't even hit the floor in the fourth quarter. Steph yours dots. Quarters by the funniest thing. On a cord to God who team yell at you. Other free line like don't pass don't pass shoot. All that time stuff. That's going to here in that laundry. Now. The motivation lodgings. Thanks. Staffs averaging thirty four point six points in six and a half six point eight assists this season this early this few games off the star. But okay, I don't know if there's a little early, but Stephen A, but at this point what chances do you give Steph to win another MVP this season, slim, very, slim, I wouldn't say none because he's the greatest shoot I've ever seen in my life. And obviously he's capable of exploding. But I'll give it a slim chance simply because of the team that he's on is great as he is. And even though he's the catalyst. He's destroyed it stirs that Cup and Golden State the reality is you have one of the top three plays on a planet. And Kevin Durant is your teammate. You've got one of the great top five greatest shooters we've ever seen in NBA history as a back court made in Klay Thompson. So there's plenty of nights where you're going to have to share the wealth. Lebron is not going to have to shit a wealth to that degree the Greek freak is not going to have to shoot a wealth to that degree. Anthony Davis is not going to have to shoot a wealth to that degree Coa Coa Linda does not going to have to share the wealth to that degree. So because of that reality, I would tell you that the chances are slim, but I can never say zero with the greatest shooter we have ever seen in our lifetime. I'm not going to win the MVP. And there are three reasons you just hit the first one their shots to go around on the warriors. They play on selfishly, Katie Klay Thompson a lot of guys are going to score his counting numbers won't be there. Like some other guys that's. One two. This is almost like the college polls before the season. Like opinions of writers and stuff affect who's going to get to the playoff in college. Because if you start from a higher position, you have less to do to get to the to the playoff. It's people's opinions actually affect this stuff. And the narrative that we all right before the season affects who's going to win the MVP. So Westbrook had a triple double one year. And it was his turn to win the MVP anyway. Right. And then he had another triple double the next year, not his turn anymore next guy up. What was the narrative before this season is going to win the MVP his competition will come from K D excuse me from AD from Anthony Davis at maybe if a guy like the Greek freak gets a jump shot. Maybe even if he doesn't he's going to be in that conversation the die has been cast. It's not Steph stern that's two and finally three. And I think this actually plays a part. There was a moment three years ago where it looked like it wasn't fair. In any other era? Lebron would be better than Steph. But there was a moment toward the end of that regular season the seventy three win season where it looked like you know, what fair or not the way the game is played today. And what Steph can do? He's the best player in basketball Space Jam he should play the Jordan character because this is really his world and the kids relate to them because the baby face, and he's not as big and strong and fast and doesn't jump as high as everyone. It looks. Like, hey, maybe I could do that the kids watching basketball like this was his NBA then the finals rolled around and LeBron owned him locked his shot, he screened on them. Steph was missing shots. He wasn't coming up. Big. Lebron was an inept our psyches now in a real way after that finals, we snuck. Steph can't be the best player in basketball. We believe that. I don't think if Steph is going to win another MVP it's going to be after a postseason where we look at him and go, whoa. He just he just carried the warriors to another champ. After a playoffs after playoffs end and the warriors crown champ. And unlike K do K D who won the MVP the past two of the finals the past two seasons. We look and say Steph is the reason they won that finals. I think then we can get over the psychological hump and find going into the next year, particularly if they were to lose K D he could rack up the stat it might be his turn again. But right now the narrative is it's not his turn. Well, listen. I don't believe that's the narrative that's number one. Number two. You talk about this is turning you. Use Russell Westbrook as a prime example. No, it wasn't at the beginning of the season that Russell Westbrook is going to be ordained league EP that he wanted. It was after he was putting up triple doubles after triple doubles night after night after night. A matter of fact, we walked into the season wondering about the quality of the Oklahoma City thunder because Kevin Durant had just left number three. I will say this as an aside I've been negligent in failing to bring this out. John wall is an all star. John wall is somebody for the Washington. Was he is the face of the franchise a guy that we both have expressed a genuine affection for in terms of how he plays the game on both ends of the floor. His athleticism is willingness to put push the ball up the floor, etc. Etc. I understand you can't be Steph curry, but when Steph curry is dropping fifty one points on you, thirteen income cut.
