"Late did you did. Did you ever think he would leave. Because you don't have any of that. Like devon has baxter has been playing with them like half. Brady's when you were there did it. Seem like a reasonable scenario that he was going to go up from me when i saw the indianapolis colts cut bait manning. He has a statue at your stadium. Your pets are off crazy. To think got a guy is determined to finish his career in one place is just just our league and i think nobody at the time sat down with just brady will be gone in a year or two. I don't think you can envision you've had that love look success for that long but you know i mean it'll guys. Dave hightower played a long time but as not a guaranteed app. Because you play a place a long time. You're retired erin. Obviously for brady. It was hard to argue on. Say it wasn't the right decision as hoisted a seven super bowl trophy last year. He looks like he actually looks better than he has the last couple of years. I was really impressed. That dallas game Best receiver you guys have ever gone against. Always say the quarterback dictates. I say that. Because i played against andre johnson and a division in houston who is a monster of biden. Always add the quarterback to get him. The ball i would just say. Just strictly physically. Calvin johnson was unbelievable. I mean you have covered. He'd run an in cut. You'd beat them out to break and you turn back to look for the ball. Looks like it's seven feet high and you turn back over your shoulder. And he's up in the air grabbing out the sky so he was just unbelievable just to try to match his feet and physicality up playing and play out in matzos. national was just else cornerstone. Doing he was in miami Then he went to the jets and you would have to fight and claw with guy outside. He drop his head a goal-rush you didn't throw you off or release. Oh was always a struggle for me especially as a young player Trying to go against brandon marshall times a year. we will play in your jets. That's interesting. I would have guessed tyreek hill just because if you make any sort of mistake it's a seventy five yard touchdown but it's the more physical guys who are a our say just does not many times with tyreek hill speed when you watch and there's not many times people are cover him without somebody over the shot so it was just as a as a different ball game. Also when you're doing you're going against a guy wanna want for an entire game of just whole everything that goes into Worst burn you've ever had an nfl game. The one that haunts you the most. That's easy for me. eagle super bowl Slant as erz caught was like to thirty thousand forty s again. I was a deandre hopkins caught a touchdown on me to end the game I think that might have been his rookie year in houston Of fable on the sideline got us to feed now. I've no idea how. I guess. I know now as you watch every sunday. And he's doing it on everybody but i was a tough one. You lose the game on a on a trash that you gave up devin ranked these wins for me. One through four falcons super bowl. Chief saves title game ravens. Thirty five to thirty one at home. Armored alan roman touchdown seahawks super bowl. I'll seahawk superbowl. I kansas city. Oh wow afc championship game. ravens three atlanta super bowl. Four interesting i say that because obviously the seahawks i super bowl way yeah we we lost a bunch of times lost the super bowl loss and ask championship a bunch of times so finally getting kansas city was they can't wait a playoff game on the road and it dated back to of all three. I think whatever year four when we Pittsburgh and pittsburgh was the last time. And what a playoff game on a house like a no win situation And then baltimore simi. Was we went down. Fourteen points twice and a playoff game. i think we ran the ball nine times out game And then i had an interception at their accord and doron harmless finish finished fourth ward at rutgers guys and atlanta mean. It was awesome but it. I don't know the game named able to watch it. Had to be great plain. Anna was just like you didn't think 'cause we have behind by so much you just playing for cry. We will live. We gonna keep clients. See what happens so you just in the middle of it. And i feel like like you going to breed washed it. It feels better to watch it than to be in the battlefield. Yeah exactly right When former question for jason devon's first rounder no-brainer. You six rounder. And everybody missed on you and you guys are still in the lead together. What did what did they miss with you. I think the draft is such an inexact science. When you think back to it like how do they fuck that up. Also jeb rusher fresh raucous and hindsight we both probably shoulda restaurant. But i would say would also Was helpful was my rookie. I get incidentally as a six round draft pick. I'm make the team. I play a little bit on defense. I'm shown up big on special teams in the kicking game. Then a year later comes out after a superb senior years year by far a lot better than my senior year or so. I think you couple that with is an identical twin. Jane men as late rounded but has carved out a niche. Looks like he's going to be in this league for a little while and now we got deaths college state. Well we have an idea of what it may look like in the pros because his brother's there so thank i think those two things but i mean as a wash all the game. They played uconn for gaming.

Belichick reaches milestone as Patriots top Raiders 36-20
"Everyone is time for the bonus episode postgame recap for Vegas Nation podcast. I'm your host Heidi Fang and I'm joined with our readers writers, Ed Greenie, Adam. Hill we're going to break down what happened here in the Raiders Lost Thirty six to twenty against the New England Patriots here Gillette Stadium in Foxborough at an ir up in the press box Adam back in Vegas a from my vantage point it was. A lot of mistakes made by the raiders, which is something you can't do against the bill belichick coach team. So we're GONNA get all into that here but I I want to remind everybody that we are brought to you by Salmon Ash, indeed visa and also favor. So make sure to subscribe wherever you're listening and what was your first take on what you saw out in the field today with the raiders. You're right. They did everything you can't do and win on the road or anywhere turn the ball over three times. Once rent on. Didn't protect car when they were driving. Me fumbled the Fumble Alina Game Matter Games already overby fumbled the end zone. In the second half, they just wore down defensively I actually done the first thirty minutes be interested at him. I think thought the first thirty minutes they played. As good. A defense as they haven't a while let's be honest. Thirteen points here cam help them a lot. He wasn't any third, but they were down on the second Apple Sikhism Derek. Carr in the offense couldn't stand field. He gave up two hundred and fifty yards total rushing late Sony Michelle when expert in its players per talking, you know these of League so they were down and they just couldn't match. Match up. So a bad game they printed everything you can do and what on the road so Adam how much in fact that these running bags like just through the defense offered their game because I don't think they were looking to contain the likes of three different running backs in this one I think they prepared to contain Cam Newton? What was your thoughts on the running game? I think I was definitely a part of it and I think there was definitely adjustments made. By the Patriots coaching staff because as as ED put out for the first half of the, Patriots were able to run the ball somewhat. But I thought a it wasn't. There wasn't those explosive plays. There wasn't those big plays downfield and it was a kind of picking up some yards here. They're moving the ball effectively but not really gashing the raiders defense and then. They figured out something in the run game after halftime and I'll be interested to find out the later in the week. Interested to get the the all twenty two film comes out like Tuesday. Look a little what happened but I think just at first glance without really looking into what they were doing on the line maybe differently. They definitely started to go to some more cutback plays where they I thought really were able to take advantage of some over pursuit of the writer side in particular from Jonathan Abram, who you know, we know what he can do. In terms just flying around offensively and having people would kind of sending a message for that defense but at the same time. You can use that aggression against him and I think the Patriots kind of figure that out a little bit and it really hit him with a big plays on a place where he got into the gap, he was near the bulk area but just couldn't make up Adams exactly right and and they're going to have to here's the thing about a player John Neighbor might think they love is aggressiveness in his hitting all that he's got a swagger Jim and I. Hate to say this, but sometimes, you just have to you have to balance that it's hard to tell a guy like that. Don't play this way but Adams wait we should for resod against Christian McCaffrey, over pursues too much when you take the battling new pursue Sunny Michelle Christian McCaffrey, they're gonNA come back will go so Yeah. They just didn't play the run wellness second atoms right they adjusted and you have to give Michelle credit like I said when you go For, an average of thirteen yards of Kerry and I don't know if he's ever average per carry more than seven in a games and you also have saved in job I am. But they did they didn't play offensively were out of rhythm Waller. We'll talk about that I know atoms writing thoughts. Darren WELLM was non factor when you get a lot of good at the bill Belgium at he talked about. How good daring waller as well. Guess what he must have died because they ran every defense coverage double team run in stem and stopped him. So atom I know you you wrote about this mean, what did you hear the game to her? How they? You know bottle up there wall I thought it was a group effort I. think that's what of expected to hear from the Patriots Bill. Belichick obviously didn't go into detail about what he did. I think it was just a lot of deception what they were doing offensively disguising it and Bella check pointed out. Hey, it wasn't somebody covering him necessarily a lot of zone. We played a lot of you know bracket coverage a lot of. Men under there was a lot of different things. Defensively. On Waller but I think it was more just about the looks of they're giving up the line and never letting the raiders. No. Before the play what kind of coverage is GonNa be on Waller? Want Credit Anybody I. Think mccourty would be the one that you would like added. Say. Devin mccourty that Dinnie. Tremendous job on him but it was a little bit of everybody kind of in the mixer.

Seven Coleman really really good they've got like woman baby yeah they've got like four backs that could that could be their starter yeah they're just really really good so they they control the clock they it's such an old school method in you know it's it's funny because in the in the stage when passing is so much more efficient they're kind of breaking that rule that passing more efficient because when you can run with that level of efficiency in that level of explosiveness I mean it just you don't Oh you don't actually really need to pass that much because they've just been doing it sufficiently my favorite maybe event of twenty nineteen so far is field yates tweeted out most pass attempts prior to first career interception history number one is Dak Prescott number three was Kyle Allen after the game yeah Richard Sherman Seen this yet Richard Sherman quote tweeted that tweet which is I'm so happy to have Richard Sherman back in our lives I talked with a couple of weeks ago but just like the thing where he may be made up that thing with Baker Mayfield I'm fine with it leveraged do whatever he wants he's back in the spotlight he's GonNa Talk unquote tweet field Yates tweets about say element Mayo hundred percent on the rich German experience back to hit a piano yeah I know this is a pro Richard Sherman podcast now I think it's really interesting what happens now in the NFC obviously the Green Bay packers won tonight there are no drew breeze comes back with the saints and they look like they didn't miss a beat obviously you know teddy bridgewater is a very good quarterback while he was aperture breezes he's wearing your mind is the pecking order in the NFC and are the niners significantly above those other two teams man that's such a good question I really like The saints still I think the fact that they were able to do what they did go five zero at bridgewater and just Kinda keep going you know keep them momentum going forward I think they are still one of the favorites I would say you know it San Francisco New Orleans one and the packers just slightly below that but with the way that Aaron Rodgers has been playing last couple of weeks there certainly scary I think their defense has taken a little bit of a step back so there may be not quite as balanced as we thought they were but yeah I mean I think those are clear top three teams there's no question about that and then you could you know make arguments for the vikings or whoever but yeah I think those are like the like the cream of the crop for share in then there's a bunch of other teams speaking of the cream of the Crop New England patriots okay so the stats from the NFL the browns I can barely get throughout the browns had turnovers on three consecutive offensive plays against the Patriots that is the first time any team has done so since week one twenty twelve only the seventh time it's been done since two thousand this is not good if you're the browns we're GonNa get to the browns and are very robust stocks downs section a little bit but this patriots team unfortunately this is not kind of the schedule will win that we thought it was going to be you know the niners get there's the browns are not as good as the panthers the browns have been kind of a disaster but this was just another performance Devin mccourty looks like maybe defensive player of the year candidate the defense he just unbelievable in Baker Mayfield after the game said that the Patriots didn't do anything confuse them they were just playing really well yeah and you you kinda wonder like isn't that the worst case scenario for a team is the they're not doing anything new there just being the crap out of you I mean it was amazing when you think about this patriots defense what comes to mind yeah I think a couple of things going to mind number one discipline that's kind of a hallmark of the belichick teams is just being really disciplined like you know obviously Cliche do your job or whatever that's the first thing versatility you know they're able to play it's

"mccourty" Discussed on Ross Tucker Football Podcast
"And he did not have time to throw it to cooks on to the post against quarters coverage. And you know, he wanted to the post for Gilmore with that minus split. So you had that issue between Gilmour and the safety as to who's going to pick up a minus split by the receiver running to the post. But the pass rush pressure got to to Goffin was just a four-man rushed. But wise and Shelton prevented Gotham making the throw and he had a hurry in incompletion. They actually came back to the same. Play that was the play in which Goth was late to cooks where the coverage again busted. And he had to come from the back side in the fourth quarter. You probably remember that play. It's it's a very important play in the game. It was the third quarter field goal drive and cooks was wide wide open. Now that was play action and Goth current his back to the defense and the patriots kind of change their look from the pre snap book to a post nap. Look and Goth was was a beat late in recognizing. And therefore the throw was late and the ball hung. I was. Really I thought that was arguably the play of the game by Jason mccourty. Yeah. He was the backside cover four corner and really he should not have been a factor on the play at all. But as I said, the the patriots that are really nice job. They showed it looked like cover three initially. And then they rotate it to cover four, but Goth play action turned his back to the defense and was not able to quite adjust his read quickly enough to recognize that cooks had basically gotten behind the defense because the patriots, busted and McCorvey made an unbelievable place should not have been factor on the play at all. But he made it. Unbelievable play. Right. So then the other question is as it relates to you just want to make sure the listeners know what a minus split is Greg before we move onto the patriots offense. Well, mine is split for a wide receiver means he's tighter to the formation. So think of it this way. You. We normally see wide receivers, particularly the whitest wide receiver is often on the numbers or outside the numbers when we talk about a minus split or a nasty split that whitest wide receiver to that side is much closer to the formation. So when you're playing cover four or quarters coverage the outside corner is responsible for the whitest wide receiver running vertically. But when he's closer to the formation sometimes that gets distorted a little bit. Because if his if that receiver who's closer to the formation sort of starts bending inside a little even if he's the whitest receiver to that side. Does the cornerback stay with him or does he pass them onto the safety? And sometimes there can be a little distortion in coverage responsibility. So I want to get to the patriots on offense as well, Greg because there's a lot of good stuff there. And I guess. One of the things that jumped out to me. Greg was just how well prepared the ram seemed to be. I mean, you know, they try to run a flare screen birkhead Dante Fowler's out there. They try to run a jet sweep and Soo is at end, and he makes the play on it. I just felt like the Rams were really dialed in at least I certainly in the first half. But I thought they did a really nice job of being dialed in against the patriots offense. I thought Wade Phillips did an outstanding job with his multiple coverage looks he changed his man to man matchups..
"mccourty" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"I wasn't as big a coaching mismatch is everybody said it looked like one team adapted late one team did not did it feel like to you. If I would not have told you who was in the game. And who the coaches were would you have said. Yeah. The team wearing white really adapted. Well in appeared well coach and the team in the blue did not. Well, I mean, I think that would check did was was absolutely brilliant. He's certainly doesn't need me saying that. But I thought what he did was brilliant ovo yet. You can look at individual plays that if they were made we might be looking at a different conversation. I mean that that play where Goff was very late to cooks wide open in the end zone with actually a really interesting play because that was very sort of Representative of what happened in the game because the patriots disguised their coverage. They started out in what was covered three and it was play action and Goth turned his back. And then they rotated to come. Over four quarters and Goth was late to recognize the change. And what his read was. And therefore he was late throwing the ball to cooks because the patriots actually busted the coverage. And the other thing that struck me on that throw. And it was something I spoke about when he came out of Cal is that's what that ball hung lost a lot of energy on the back end. And he was clean in the pocket. Jason mccourty, obviously made a great play. But he should never have been a factor in the play. I want to go to your big play this Brady to gronk and lay it out for our audience. Well, this was that touchdown drive. And what they did really really well on that drive with they went with what we call twenty two personnel something they had not done very much in the game to backs two tight ends. And they went empty and they did that on three consecutive plays. And the gronkowski play was the third of the three plays. So we're going to start with that play. Everybody remembers this. It was arguably the biggest player in the game getting them down in scoring position and Brady hits gronkowski on the. Team route down inside the five yard line. This place started with element in motion across the formation something they do a lot a lot of motion with element. But they ran basically the same play concept three consecutive plays. This was third one. And what they did is they took it men from inside. And he ran kind of juke route or a jerk route. So he was the inside route here, then they took birkhead, and he ran a hitch route on the outside, and then they took gronkowski just inside birkhead, and he ran a seem route. So they did this three plays in a row and actually Brady hit edleman on the first play birkhead on the second play and now grunk, but here the Rams got a little confused Littleton was late to get to his assignment of gronkowski. And Brady was able to make a great throw. But this was an adjustment. They clearly made in the fourth quarter for this drive where they went to twenty two personnel to back to tight ends at empty and they win. Three consecutive plays with the same route concept, by the way, most people thought the game was boring when you looked at film, will you fascinated by elements of it fascinated by the defense on both sides. I thought Wade Phillips did an outstanding job with his coverage as well Brady was not really pressured. But Brady struggled at times too quickly. Decipher what he was seeing. And that got him stuck in the pocket. So I thought Wade Phillips outstanding job as well for someone like me Colin watching the tape of this game. And I spent about eight hours yesterday watching both sides of the ball. I thought this was fascinating see Greg Cosell. And I liked the game. I thought it was really enjoyable you. And I both did Greg. It's great talking to you again. I appreciate it. Thank you. What are the wise? Guys wear. I get.

"What's up everybody? This is Jason mccourty Devin mccourty the New England Patriots. Four days to Sunday. Yeah. Those guys had some fun with that. And if you want to hear a little bit more about the mccourty brothers. That's going to be coming up as part of our coverage on Sunday. Welcome back to the road to Super Bowl fifty three. It is four days to Sunday. And it's time now for some straight talk with our colleague qualified reporter Edward brought to you by straight talk wireless, straight talk, wireless runs on the exact same cell towers is the big guys, but charges a lot less. Get America's best networks for less with straight talk wireless. Ed, how are you? I'm doing. Well. How are you, sir? I am doing well as well. Today's a big day Super Bowl week the Commissioner gets a chance to address the media take questions from the media. And of course, one of the major topics that people were going to be curious about the media would be curious about had to do with the call or non call the NFC championship game between the Rams ended Orleans Saints, and here's what Roger Goodell had to say whenever officiating is part of any kind of discussion post game. It's never a good outcome for us. We know that our quotes. Oh, that are ficials know that. But we also are officials humid, and they're not going to get it. Right. Every time we have worked very hard to bring technology in to try to make sure we can do whatever is possible address those issues, but technology is not going to solve all those issues. The game is not officiated by robots. It's not going to be. But we have to continue to go down that path. All right. So that is the league's official position on exactly what happened last weekend. I know that you had a, you know, a question in mind for the Commissioner, and apparently, I guess you didn't get a chance to ask. I did. I was standing there. Right. Ask for the microphone in the press conference ended before I got an opportunity to ask. And and that's because I think the explanation was somewhat incomplete in absent. Stated apology to the saints fans and football fans in general. But my takeaways are this first of all he he never mentioned at the press conference. Whether anything had been put in place even on a temporary basis to ensure that a similar officiating error wouldn't be made and play a significantly similar role in determining the outcome of Sunday's game between the patriots Rams, then that is amazing because right now, you're kind of out there in limbo, similar situation happens. You can only imagine how that would snowball. Yeah. And then the other thing that I thought was missing was he didn't even hint at how supervisor of officials Al river on might be held accountable by the league or whether the officials specifically responsible for missing the call would be in any way disciplined. It is amazing that that one moment that happened which changed so many things about the structure of this season. And perhaps about who which champion is going to be crowd that took over the lion's share. The attention on this week and the league's response to it. So turn to the page on that briefly right now this is that period of time where the teams finally get an opportunity to get to the practice field. And they got an opportunity to do that today. Both teams in the practice field for the first time any interesting nuggets of news that came out of the day today. Well, I thought the interesting thing from the patriots point of view as I talked to offensive coordinator, Josh mcdaniels after they had their first practice at Georgia Tech, eight minutes long. And he said, they were highly highly energetic, really engaged a lot of intensity. He compared it to the first day of training camp. By also anybody's thinking that the patriots have been here. So many times it's an easy routine for them to follow that doesn't seem to be the case and Robert Kraft, the owner of the patriots also said Scott that he would not hesitate based on Tom Brady's age, which is forty one as he plays his nine Super Bowl to extend his contract. He has one year left. He signed through the twenty nine thousand nine season. He said that he could he could imagine. The Tom Brady will be the quarterback of the patriots for quite a while was quote. Wow. That's that is beyond comprehension and a lot of different ways. Tom Brady could be back with more opportunities to do this again. And again and again, all right? So now on the other side, you got a Los Angeles Rams team that doesn't have that kind of a Super Bowl pedigree. But from what I understand from what you told me. There's some great advice. It gets doled out by a Super Bowl veteran. Yeah. Rams running back CJ Anderson who won a Super Bowl ring with the Denver Broncos three years ago was asked what advice he would give to his inexperienced Super Bowl. Thi this is good. And he's had a very simple answer. Don't lose. That's good stuff. Sometimes. Forty part is what we talked to the other night. The first thing he said to me. I know that that everybody talks about a keep to leave. And the fact that he's been here before, but I've been here before too. It's good to know that that's what he's brought to the table. I thought it was a great response. And we'll talk.

"What do you do if you're Belgian do you put him on? I put him on with you. That's exactly what I thought. But do you do then do you put crossing or Jones on? Brennan cokes and help them with the double or do you hope that Jason mccourty can do it. I just according ords. Yeah. He's been okay. Fine. He'll he'll how old definitely younger than me. Extreme confidence. I think he's the same age Devin mccourty. I think that we will see Jason mccourty actually on the titans. Yeah. Like, I said, I think Gilmore on woods. Let's see how old thirty one younger than both of us real. I think you know. Yeah. You're going to leave. You're gonna have some vulnerability like Goss probably they're gonna go after Jackson. Sure who's up and down. I mean, he's still a great surprise for them. I think this season. But it's it's it's almost kind of this is interesting. I just saw somewhere that the. The Rams are for legal cover one. Title uncovering rose. Yes. I guess in my with by the patriots defense, and how they're gonna handle the Rams, you know, it's almost less about coverage and more about just making Jared goff's life miserable. So that they have to worry about their coverage. And I think that's been to me the surprise of the postseason like where the hell of this. Patriots pass rush. Come from. Yeah. That's interesting part of it, rightly trae flowers looks awesome. They've been blitzing really effectively a ton. But I think when they do, but it's worked out really well for them. And I think they're confused at the first third down of that lions game come out with with two anchors and the gaps. They bring pressure Jared Goff misses an open receiver. I think the patriots blitz Thomas game. I don't think it makes sense for them to do that. But I think I talk about Dominique a bit. When we did our podcast, it all really comes down to basically, can you confuse not only Jared Goff? But can you can Confucian McVeigh? Ooh. Ooh. Mcveigh's on the sideline sort of figuring things out for Jared Goff. So it's a question of number one. Are the Rams gonna try and play an aggressive game and get the ball out quickly? So. Snap the ball quickly. So you're not running the clock below fifteen seconds. When column Sean fate ghost Jared Goff, the end of every place with lentils and make sense. But in we're too then Celtic confusing Fe like they're going to try to sort of hide their defense mass what they're going to do. And then still play good coverage after the snap. Because if you do, and if you can confusion McVeigh confused air golf, you don't have to be great and coverage just have to be good enough to confuse him and get him office. I look which the patriots have been so affective again, we talk about like where did this pass? Rush comes from. It comes from confusion stunts sauce. They've been like great stunt stance. Stunt stuff. Yeah. I mean, I think there's an interesting sort of situation there you have this genius offensive coach. He's been brilliant for so long who has seen every possible thing who's played against this offense or version show this offense for twenty five years now. My son. They have used stunts on fifty four percent of pass rushing snaps after only using twenty eight percent in the regular. That's almost double. And when they've done it. They've gotten pressure on the quarterback fifty eight percent that's alive. Folks. You don't actually the patriots. They've gotten pressure. The pressure numbers this year are better than any team during the regular season. Really? So they are to go back to your point about deception. And again, this is this is why I love this matchup..

"It comes to competing with the likes of the Knicks, and the Celtics and the Sixers don't have nearly as much to offer the pelicans, and it might alternately undermine their caused even as these teams know, maybe we're taking a one year flyer on this guy. We'll take one year of Anthony Davis. Even if it means giving up a little bit of the farm if New England wins one pain is thinking about retirement. Yeah. I know Tom Brady zero percent all that good stuff. Devin mccourty of the McCorvey twins announced yesterday or at least brought up yesterday the idea that if they win the Super Bowl this year. Maybe he would contemplate going out on top this idea that winning a Super Bowl with his brother Jason is twin brother Jason on the patriots as well is as good as it's going to get in as good as it possibly could get someone who played college football with their brother and had a chance to win an championship with their brother. There are very few things that need more than that Bonn on the field that you can take in the locker which we are. We hear all the time about brotherhood and sports. There's a difference of also having someone who's an actual brother in that space day, reminder how special that bond is so how cool for these guys to be able to go through this. You understand it wishing well Devin mccourty he's been a great patriot for these guys. And certainly he's a guy that they would miss, but he is not the patriot that would necessarily come to mind when we think retirement would they finally get Tom Brady or more than likely rob gronkowski who I think has become the biggest subject of all the retirement speculation over under six questions for Roger Goodell on the non call New Orleans hammer the over we are going to spend way too much time. With Roger Goodell on that non because the answer is simple. We got it wrong. And we are looking into ways to improve our video review process at the end of halves and the end of games surrounding calls and egregious mistakes. Like this I wrote the script for you. Roger if you would like to use that please my van MO is open. You could pay me on the side for that. I won't even charge. You my usual rate. You will get the family and friends discount because I think it's just that easy. But you're gonna get every follow up on the planet. You're going to be asked why you didn't come out respond sooner all of these things that don't matter relative to a number of the other.

"I mean Grachev, Mike, right? I'll do it one year. My final Super Bowl. Time is going to be your for another five. What else you got patriots players thinking about retirement gronk kind of danced around the question Brady got asked about it this week one player did answer it straight up Devin mccourty, of course, playing in the Super Bowl. This brother Jason said to Dion last night. I don't know if I'm going to retire. But I look at it if we can win this game and winning it with my brother. I don't know. What else I could do that could top that? Okay. Pretty good for Jason Devin mccourty. What do you think I asked this the last hour if you're a twin like the Macoris Devon Jason Jason? And you don't know who's who don't you think it's appropriate for twin to walk up to you and identify which one he is. So you know, who you're talking to you have to do that is in the twin rulebook you'd have to do. The book twins. Got Rubin's book a twin? It's called the twins. Like, my book Leon the twins book twins say that sounds like a curb episode where Larry or you get upset because at twin doesn't identify him or herself as to who they are some those twins. They're connected. You know, own be surprised at once in awhile games, you know, places for the hell of it. If there happened jerseys do different jerseys different numbers going to break its back. Twins PD too. I didn't. What? What's? The second set, of course. Hi, my name is Arthur. Or be chapter one after one. What else he had over there? Our long national nightmare is over USC football finally has an offensive coordinator who I think is going to stick around longer than a couple of weeks Graham Harrell, okay? What else you got Kris K UFC news jobs to North Texas lost their offensive coordinator. So they could run USC. These just doesn't sorry. What is the U F C?.

"But also there's a little fat little storyline of Toledo being a former patriot himself now playing against them. Brandin cooks. This is also true. He said he added this headed fuel to the fire for him personally. And also the facts that till you even Brady we're talking about when they played together. And I was kind of weird like talking about their old really like an old break-up or something. Really, I do that. They were it was it was something incredibly brief. It was a little brush off nothing too serious. But this was a very interesting media day, not be I've just never seen it where usually it's one like they're on the opposite sides or like one goes for the one team goes I on the other team comes in not at the same time in all interviewing each other. I did not expect that what I think is cool is Jason mccourty is playing in his first Super Bowl. His brother. Devin mccourty is not playing his first Super Bowl. This is I think is third Super Bowl that he's had a chance to play in. But it is cool to the mccourty brothers are actually going to be playing in a Super Bowl together. Devin mccourty talked about how it was awesome that his brother could experience this. And he even said that he would think about retiring after this game because he said, you know, playing in a Super Bowl of my brother. I think that's as cool as it could ever be. I don't I don't know if I play after that. So we'll see what happens in his future. But that is cool man to be have a family member alongside of you playing for chance to one Super Bowl. Oh, yeah. It's definitely an interesting situation forged shore. And with that you look at like, there's so many other storylines happening to this matchup other than young coach versus old coach, you know. I just I need a little more, man. I need like Sean McVay to say, you know, Bill Belichick. He's just not as sharp as he was before, you know, like so you need some cash Chinese. I need Bill to say like, yeah. You know, this guy, you know, is old enough to be a high school coach, but he doesn't belong here. So it just a little you want you want some drama little tough to you on that thing. That's funny. Like throw something on there. Like, I don't know, man. There's stuff going on. I mean, they got a couple more days of this stuff. So hopefully, it's more entertaining down the road. Anyways, before we go to break..

"It's Tuesday edition of pro football talk live, and we are still here like the patriots. And we're in Atlanta like the patriots getting ready for the game, which is now only five days away and things are going to begin to move today into the moral. There's going to be more people here just coming into the media center and radio row. You can see there's more stuff set up. There's more activity that is going to be happening today. Yesterday was the low point it always is and it continues to build and build from there. Michael David Smith, kind enough to get up early and come over and join me here and the S. How are you today? I'm doing well, Mike, I am recovered from Super Bowl opening night formerly known as Super Bowl media day, which is not really an event where we get a lot of work done. But the fans sure seemed to enjoy how many were there last night how many fans ten thousand fans filled up the state farm arena where the Atlanta Hawks play. And it's a big event that the NFL is found one more way to get money out of the biggest fans, what do they pay to get in? It is about twenty five dollars is the average ticket price. That's not bad. If my math is correct. And it rarely is twenty five times ten thousand that's about two hundred and fifty grand is that right? Is that to fifty that would be two hundred and fifty grand? We sure. Yeah. It's two fifty. I was hoping it'd be two point five million. If it sound even better that would sound that's not bad for a show about nothing a show for which years, they gain no revenue from they just showed up, and they talk. For many years. It was media day not opening night. And when it was media day, the only people there were the media. And now fans are there as well. I went to that one time. I'll never go back. Well, I've gone just about every year. I think I've been covering the Super Bowl twelve years now. And I believe I've attended all of them. There may have been one year. I skipped it, but I do still go, but it really doesn't cater to the sports writer it caters to the fan, and then also kind of the access Hollywood type of media outlets. It's more about personality than about football. And then when there are football questions to be asked. Of course, the NFL, let's the NFL network people get the exclusive one on one with the players and the coaches, so it's for working sports writers. There's not a lot of value to it. I do still attend though. Just to kind of get your first sense for who always here who's talking who's got anything to say. So what was the big takeaway? What was the one? One thing that sticks with you from last night. Well, I thought it was pretty interesting that a few different patriots seem to be reflecting on legacies. We heard Devin mccourty talk about Albouy one more Super Bowl win would be a great way to finish a career. And that was something. We hadn't heard him talk about his career possibly coming to an end before rob gronkowski. Also wouldn't talk about whether he's career is coming to an end Tom Brady had some interesting comments about. Well. I don't listen to the noise then followed immediately up with well, I hear everything and I use it as motivation, and he too seems to take this game as one more piece of his legacy. So I thought it was interesting to hear how many patriots players were really talking about this as perhaps a crowning achievement to their career. And the one guy that we know isn't going to be crowning his career is Tom Brady. So he says, I still think there's a chance that circumstances change dramatic. Once he's holding that six trophy and wants his wife, emerges from the shadows. And grabs him by the year and pulls him off to the off to the right and say, you're done Tommy, whether you want to be done or not even though he seems physically like he could keep going, and I think that's really the factor. He keep going. There's always that risk. You're going to lose to father time during a season. What would you do if that period from September to December is when all of a sudden, it's gone. It's not coming back. But he seems determined to keep going. It would have been a fun story line. But he put it to bed before you even got to opening night. Did that come up for him? At all was asked to revisit the possibility of retirement, in any way, shape or form. You know, there were a couple of people kind of asking about the his his general thoughts on the future. But he seems to be sticking to the company line of not only am I not retiring after this game. I have no intention of retiring a year from now, and he has been talking about forty five as the age that he plans to play too. So. A lot can happen between forty one and forty five for a professional athlete. But the sense that he is giving is he really has absolutely no intention at all of leaving this game anytime soon, Nicole Roby Coleman came up with a fairly effective strategy of getting people to quit talking about the non call from pass interference in the Rams saints NFC championship game because he had a quote Tyler done Bleacher report that created some headlines yesterday and resonated into Monday night, the original quote from Nicole Roby calm on Tom Brady age has definitely taken a toll for him to still be doing it. That's a great compliment for him. But I think that he's definitely not the same quarterback. He was movement. Speed velocity arm strength. He can still slung it. But he's not slinging it as much. He's still doing the same things. He's just not doing as much of it. And sometimes it's not the sharpest. But it still gets done last night. He has and he he went with the that was out of. Context. Thomas a great quarterback. He's the goat. He's a legend. I'm not taking nothing from his game. I was asked a question about the difference between the past. And now I said his age it wasn't about. He's old. I'm not taking away. Nothing from him. It was just his age and Brady was asked to respond after a notable pause. He said, yeah, I don't have much to add. So look Brady's gonna take that and use that as motivation. He's gonna use anything. He can is motivation. He said at one point we don't listen to the noise. But we hear the things that are said they selectively listen to what is being said, they're not gonna listen to the praise they're not gonna listen to anything that would get them to not be fully motivated. But if there's anything out there that gets them to be fully motivated, that's what they're going to lock onto because they need anything. They can because they have all the trophies. They have all the hardware. They have all the accomplishments. They have one of the greatest franchises in sports history. They have to look for any actual or perceived slight to ensure that the engine is running in time for the game. And Tom Brady loves to hear people questioning he really. Thrives on a belief that he is doubted a belief that others don't believe in him. And we know it isn't true. We know everyone says Tom Brady is great. We know everyone says the patriots are great. But it has to have been a good thing from the patriots perspective that someone on the other team decided to say something that sounded like a Tom Brady's not the player used to be because they thrive on that. They love hearing that I don't want to go too far down the psychological rabbit hole on this. But I can't help but wonder whether or not Nicole Roby Kalman when talking to Tyler done, and you have to wonder about the wisdom of leading that guy talk at all. Because if you're so worried about this never ending question regarding the legitimacy of the Rams in the Super Bowl, the non call at the end of regulation in Rams saints and Robie Kalman right in the middle of it. If he's so focused on that talking about that thinking about that. Allowing that to not become a distraction. Did he may be have his guard down and say something stupid on another area altogether? That if that non call doesn't happen in the Rams still win the game does Roby calm have better command of his vocal cords and not say something like that that he then has to clean up. He may have said it anyway. But I almost feel like you can only expect a guy to carry so much mental baggage around and worry about so many things, and it may very well be that focusing on that issue about the non call allowed. This other issue to kind of squirt through Roby Coleman used the word surreal to describe what the last week has been for him because he has been the talk of the NFL I four the non call and in for his comments about Tom Brady this guy who I don't think we mentioned him too many times during the regular season. Suddenly for the last week. He has been the most disgusting name in the NFL. And he described it as a surreal. Experience for him. And you wonder is he then going to have a tough week of work. Putting all that behind him. And is Tom Brady going to be picking on him. Not. Because Tom Brady's angry. They said something about him. But he's Tom Brady going to be thinking, wait a minute. This guy's been distracted by being in the middle of a media storm all week. He won't be as prepared easy. Normally would be he's the guy I want to go after it. And it's one of these things that, you know, maybe maybe in the end, it doesn't matter. But it could matter it it could make a slight difference. And if there's if there's one play that Robey Coleman isn't ready for and Tom Brady is ready for maybe that's the difference in a game. It makes him susceptible to the double move. Does the quick card pomp, and and jumps it. And then somebody whether it's Philip door set, whether it's Julian element. Whether it's Chris HOGAN somebody over the top is gone. And the first thing I thought of when I saw this start to percolate was Anthony Smith the long forgotten except for this one very specific example Steelers defensive back during. The patriots undefeated regular season in two thousand seven. The Steelers were going to New England early December Anthony Smith made the mistake of guaranteeing victory. He got targeted for a couple of touchdowns early. Bill Belichick had things to say. After the game. Tom Brady had things to say after the game. So it just shows you when you are a team that is not universally. Hated hated by fans that aren't patriots fans because you are an example of everything that every other fan wants its team to be. You become hated you become reviled. And you look for anything you can take because you're at the top of the mountain where are you going to get your motivation? You can't say, hey, you know, we're trying to take down the big dog. We are the big dog. So the big dog has to find some other reason to go out and run, and that was an example in two thousand seven this is an example now, and that was a that was an unfortunate for Nick, Nicole Roby Coleman moment fortunate for the patriots. And also fortunate for us gives us some talk about I'm never going to complain about some guy saying something that he shouldn't say because we filled up the last seven minutes talking about it. Yeah. That's exactly right. That's all we can look for right now is someone to say something that gives us something interesting to talk about. And usually when someone says something that we have to talk about that's followed with them clarifying that. No, no, no, no. That was taken out of context. And in reality. It was not taken out of context. Now, it's never taken out of context. Taken out of context means you isolate someone's quote in a way that it's completely misleading and false to use that. In a separate context. When it is accurate and consistent with the message. That guy was conveying at that. That's the message. He was conveying. Tom Brady's order now. And he can't do what he used to do. Why would you say that? I don't know. But that's what the guy said when we return rob gronkowski has given us nothing to talk about yet. But the way he responded to the key question regarding his future. Does gives us something in around about way to discuss and explore and examine it and we'll do that. When PFC lot continues right after this..
"mccourty" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"He converts for fifteen yards. You're watching that on the sidelines. What's going through your mind? I'm happy to finally be on the right side of this thing. Years. You study him you watch them as just over and over again playoff to play. He just continues to make it as if his easy form. I think to be on this side of his sitting on that bench. And I remember saying JC Jackson was so we score right now. Do they get the ball bat said JC we score. I'm sprinting onto the field away to guy did earlier in the game holding the sign up. So I'll maj as a crazy amount of motions. I go through. So in your mind, he near mind. What does this say about this team this year that you're going to the Super Bowl that you came to Kansas City and beat this team with the young FINA, Mahomes, battle-tested perseverance, you know, this is a team that has gone through a lot. And I know over the years I've watched and he's finished the season fourteen to number one seat. Everybody's picking for the Super Bowl this year to go three and five on a and into have to go on a roll for the championship. One of our best friends taxman yesterday or today, and we're just I have. You've ever wanna play a game on a roll have just like not having. So it was a lot of first times for myself one for Dave as well. Two things one. Is there something about this experience? That's really different from your other experiences in pro football. What Dow I think when you're able to win at this level this much. I think going through what I've gone through leading up to this you appreciate it so much more. So it makes it a lot different. Because you didn't imagine that you'd be standing here. I think I could win eleven games in a season, you know, and today to do into win consistently winning streaks to be a part of a veteran la- team and gosh, just picking each other up definitely been different and special. Nobody on the Kansas City Chiefs at ever played in the conference championship before thirty six players in this locker room have played in a conference championship before today. You're one of the ones who didn't. But what does the experience mean on a day like today? Bill tells us amaze nothing, however, plays about on whatever giving Saturday or Sunday and a playoff as a team, and I was gonna win. And today we were able to play just a little bit better than I can say to walk away with a win. Last thing. You've watched a lot. I'm sure in your life on Super Bowl Sunday. But you've never. Done it. What do you imagine? It's going to be like for you a lot of anxiety or star. Where for sure I was nervous headache before it is game. And then I just think it's gonna be fun you grow up member going to Super Bowl parties as a kid was going to be a lot of kids around the country tuned in watching eating pizza bagels Assam watching us client a Super Bowl.

So I mean, you you can't really go to him as you see what happened just a minute ago. Sammy Watkins is having a great game as he just. Got the past right now. I think that's who you go to. I think that's your number one receiver in this game. I'm interesting the fact that they didn't throw a flag on that pick play right there on mccourty. When. Jason. Was probably it was probably a good. No call. It looked him up. Neither man to man coverage. But they did a good job man getting Watkins out on a wheel. But he definitely got Jason mccourty got picked off big time. But I think that they did a good job of selling of another chiefs are knocking on the door on the one yard line. Well, it sounds like they heard you Bobby because you said they needed to go ahead and score quickly. But if they try to score try to score quickly. But if they score right now that is plenty of time on the clock for and they do score. And it's your boy none other than Damian Williams that runs it in for a touchdown. I stand corrected big time, Bobby he's having a stellar game tonight. And so now the score in the game Kansas City. Chiefs are up twenty seven to twenty four over the New England. I don't know if I keep saying that New England Patriots. There's two minutes and three seconds left in the fourth quarter. And that is plenty of time for father Tom to drive the ball down the field and possibly set it up for a field goal or a touchdown. Yes. What's going to happen here? I mean, pending extra point it'll be twenty eight twenty four they're going to need a touchdown to win the game, assuming they make this and that's been pretty the assumption now, and it does your through the uprights, but you've seen crazier things happen, but two minutes and three seconds left. Three timeouts. To me. This is classic Tom Brady time. And I don't know if there's another guy that you would want in this moment in this situation. Eleven career game were in drives in the fourth quarter overtime and a postseason to in the AFC championship game two thousand eleven two thousand seventeen. I'm not sure there's a guy you went out there. More Tom is that guy? He is that dude. That you want to have the ball in his hands at the end of the game reaches. There's somebody else that she would like to have you. Tell me. Well, you know, I was going to go to the Cowboys. But no, you're right. Tom Brady is who. No, I wasn't. So I can't say I can't do it. Tom Brady is who I would definitely want. And right now, we have an update from Derek Haglund who is at this game right now. Hey, guys, yet, they need one and scores. His third touchdown of the fourth quarter twenty twenty four seats with two or three left. Like Bobby was alluding to. You know, did they leave Tom Brady a little too much time in this game? But the patriots data touchdown. So who knows but two minutes away from Kansas going to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

"mccourty" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"That's good for us cowboy nation. Erupts Cowboys Ron FOX that's our team. And you know, the other thing that would be great for us. And you're not gonna believe this. But I will set a record Monday. If this happens the patriots, get blown out and the dynasty dies. Because a lot of people are connecting meet a New England through the years. I see the numbers they'll tune in to see what I have to say about the dynasty that got crushed chargers. Win by forty. They roll him. They beat them forty seven to ten. It is awful Brady stinks. That is great for my business. But that's not going to happen because New England going to win. But the chargers have better players do not arguing so to Jacksonville last year. So does Pittsburgh every year. So that Lanta in the Super Bowl Atlanta had better players go to the Pro Bowl list. Seattle at better players in the Super Bowl, by way, sort of the St Louis Rams seventeen years ago they had better players than New England. In fact, if you put down the top ten players in my opinion between the chargers and the patriots this weekend Brady one then Philip rivers than the patriots, Stefan Gilmore then. It's a bunch of chargers. And then Devin mccourty it seven to three chargers Brady rivers to Gilmore Desmond king Derwin James Joey Bosa Melvin Ingram, Devin mccourty Melvin Gordon keen analysis, and by the way, eleven through twenty is a lot of chargers. Seattle better players it Lanta had better players. Pittsburgh Joe has got better players chargers. Have better players Lanta. Did let me give you the advantages. If I may for New England at home, Bella Chac rested, weather experience significantly better kicker. The chargers are playing on back to back east coast games. There is not geographically unless the NFL creates a very quick franchise in Nova Scotia. There is not a further trip. The chargers could make for the second straight weekend. New England does have less talent. But this has become their brand that outside Brady talent doesn't win games. Being at home, cold weather, December January one or two trick plays. Very good bend. Don't break defense. I will tell you without question. And joy Taylor knows this and everybody in my business knows this. We do not root for teams we root for stories. I rooted for LeBron to become a Laker and LeBron to become a Miami Heat. And when those stories get old like LeBron in Miami. Lebron Cleveland, I'm rooting for another story. That's what we root for Dallas winning and New England getting absolutely lit up this weekend is fantastic. But I even think I know how this game's gonna go. A rested team on two weeks is going to.
