"I got Michael Smith in the chair and he's got a great care. Michael is sitting in one of those winged back chairs. So it's almost like you've got your own little built-in podcast studio Michael. Yeah I don't think I plan this share several years ago but now they work for NPR I guess you could say three apropos. Very Apropos and you had to move that chair or did you buy it in your new home when you took the job with NPR actually haven't moved yet I still live part time in western New Jersey in a small town called. Caliban. Can and then also part time in New York City NPR is working remotely through the end of two thousand twenty and that means good and bad news. Good news is that I don't have to move to the DC area at least until twenty twenty one, the bad news is that working from home and I haven't met nickel well, it's nice to see you no matter where you are. Hey It's ebbing moss, and this is episode fifteen of insider interviews with the chief marketing officer of NPR National Public Radio. Michael Smith joined back in April, many years before that he and I work together at food network and he went on to run the cooking channel and digital channels for scripts, networks, and Michael. Is just an excellent marketer and all so has a real finger on the pulse about digital and all these diversity. He's a caring guy I know that he biked to work in New York City for fourteen years in a row. Now, he's going to have to drive to the NPR offices when he moves to the DC suburbs I think. That's okay. Michael's moved around a lot. He was born in Canada he was raised in Jamaica he worked at. Disney channel in. Asia. So Michael knows a thing or two about the world and certainly about marketing. Here's Michael. Michael Smith. I have to I say congratulations and you definitely stepped in to an amazing role as CMO of NPR's we mentioned. But we also joked about the fact not very funny that it was. At the start of our global pandemic. So I really want to know what your challenges were before. That was even on our radar and what you intended when you accepted this role, and then how you had to pivot your marketing strategy. I think the big challenge for NPR which is the challenge for most media companies right now is dealing with these two ships going on in the media industry. One is how people consume moving from linear to more on demand than streaming digital products, and then to the change in the demographics, how the country is becoming more diverse than ever in history and NPR. Late, last year started to realize that focusing more on digital distribution of content in reaching younger and more diverse audience. Where two key priorities and we started to actually make investments into doing off platform marketing with makes people be surprised to hear that for years. NPR had not done any paid media advertising, very, very limited advertising than we'd relied on just cross promotion across radio shows and the radio shows begat the podcast, and then we cross promoted them but it gave us a very loyal audience but a very limited audience, and so I think in order to broaden the audience needed to go off. And we also realized that we needed to grow digital audience because radio is relatively strong, but it's been declining little by little as people move to more on demand platforms with the pandemic was the couple of things wanted accelerated the shift from linear to digital because one of the key ways people listen to the radio is in their cars and now they're not commuting. A thought immediate drop in our news magazines are morning and afternoon show listenership. But we saw a huge spike in the NPR dot Org and our podcast listening. So actually our total audience for all of our touch points is greater than it was before the pandemic started but our radio audience has declined significantly. So that's one thing and then the second thing was that the advertising recession hit as well which were lucky that we have three he revenue streams, the membership dues from supporters of the local stations that carry our. Content Philanthropy revie from foundations in major donors, and then the third part is from sponsorship revenue but the sponsorship revenue was hit pretty hard so that really hurt us in terms of being able to make the investments we wanted to make paid media. So it put a lot of those plans on hold, but we have been still in a lesser way, but still investing in supporting our podcast with paid media. So it's tricky balancing act with tighter revenue. There's less resources that we just think it's so important to continue to drive. Awareness of our digital properties just because that's where the audience is moving. There's so much to as they say unpack. In that answer, we will drill down to each of those things but here's what I. Think I heard you say and what I want to get details on. So I is the sort of balancing act between linear and digital. The other is the shifting audience makeup with greater diversity but sort of shift in age demo and third is the impact on your life blood. You're very support from various forms of income, and so how are you going to balance all of that? So I know you for a long time now Michael, and so I can say with some authority and not just from reading your bio that you are the man for the job. I think Abbas meeting with our newsdesks this morning and I was giving a little background, just my personal history and I was saying that one of the reasons I think in well suited for this is just the fact that I just been a huge fan of the content. Our mission is to create a more informed public one inspired and invigorated by stories of events in ideas and cultures, and so if. You're kind of person like me who just always the loves reading biographical novels and listening to podcasts in taking online classes. It just sort of always been about personal enrichment and that's NPR does that kind of we feel is role in the media landscape and I tell people. It's like being a fan of the team and then you get to sit in the dugout and then you actually get in play so. It's a real been a real treat. Here's why I think you're GonNa hit a home run. I did that. So the reason I know you is because something like twenty years ago can you believe it twenty years ago? This was ironic you and I worked together when you were the VP of marketing and creative at food network and I was doing ad sales marketing at food network, and then nine eleven hit yeah, it's. was probably the last maybe other than the two, thousand, eight, nine recession probably the biggest shock to our industry in the last thirty years. And now, I'm interviewing you in midst still shouldn't laugh when I say this a global pandemic. So. But in between and why I say I, also know that you're the perfect man for this job is I remember you Michael Really. Helping to evolve. So many of the digital assets at food network that then you went on to be the GM of cooking channel and really kind of took on all of the expensive programming for that brand and its digital presence, and then you were the GM of digital channels for scripts and you had to really kind of come up with stories to reach again younger, more diverse audiences so that in and of itself you know as I said, I know you personally and professionally you're so well suited for this. What are you most excited about taking on? NPR of those sort of buckets that we outlined. Or I think the thing I'm most excited about is the challenge that we face and the resources that we have before I came to NPR. My initial thought was that we would need to build it before they would be able to come that we may have some content challenges in terms of creating more diverse content with younger voices and younger storytelling in. Then once we got the house bill than we could lean into actually inviting people over to the house, but I was just been blown away when I look at the content that we have internally if you think about the diversity that we've been able to infuse throughout NPR over the last five or six years from our flagship. Radio shows like morning edition. All things considered half of the host of all things considered are women of color a quarter of the House of.

Ronald Reagan's Address to Nation on the Challenger
"Our. I fire nation. Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God. Thank you
Michael Smith on the Paul Finebaum Show
"You're listening to the Paul Finebaum Show podcast and we're delighted to welcome all of you back. Oh one of the Tru truly great reporters On the on the college sports business seen in Michael Smith joining us now. In one of the most recent issues of the Sports Business Journal talking about The first six years of the College Football Ballpoint Michael Great to have you on we. We're always looking for ways to talk. I'd rather do it other than on the only on the air. But we're delighted to have you here and I wanna I just first of all Just have you do reflect on some of the reporting that you did in this piece as well as your own observations of the first uh for six years of the College Football playoff. Hey Paul thanks for having me So good catch up with you and You know the point of the story was to look at the College Football Playoff Championship game. We're six years into it now. The the deal it is being goes twelve years so we felt like at at this midpoint on the TV contract. It was a good time to kind of take stock of what has worked what has not worked and so we went out and hold a lot of marketing then media experts and got their opinions on on that question and so as you can imagine. Most of the feedback was positive It's better than the system we had before But it still leaves a lot of questions in terms of how do you grow the TV audience. Had He made it. It could schedule more consistent so we don't have two weeks between the semi final and final. How do we keep games off of New Year's Eve questions like that that they continue to come up and no real solution for right now you also took look with ESPN executives About the time of the game. And that's a that's that's a complaint you get all the time this year. The game ended. I think twelve fourteen no the game a couple of years ago when even later an and Michael you and I live on the East eastern time zone we forget there are people in California who are three hours behind us but That's not going to change. There's a no it's not gonNA change you know. Five of the six championship games have gone past midnight. And like you said some going well past midnight and that's where it really comes down to. How competitive the game is and with LSU pulling away at that point the viewer show probably after midnight was not as great raise. It would have been saved for the Alabama Georgia overtime game. No it's a really good point Let me ask you since you are You know all these people pool and I know you just go through spending some time and can't wait to hear more about it with Jim Delany in Nashville. Who Retired how? How does college football allow the Big Ten and the PAC twelve and more importantly the Rosebowl? Aw dictate everything else that goes around it. The that's kind of age old question June and You know there. There's such an allegiance. There's such loyalty to to the ball. Games like especially the Rosebowl like you pointed out often and that really is one of the major factors. You know the rosebowl being locked in at that time. New Year's Day on factors I y you cannot consistently put the semifinals on New Year's Day. And then come back with the championship game a week later And there there's just It's almost hard to explain. But there there's such a sense of The the Rose Bowl has been so. Oh good to college football that you do have loyalists like Jim Laney and others the you know who the SEC. In the sugar bowl for example that They they don't want to relinquish that. And so the only way to make sure the Rose Bowl and sugar bowl maintain that status as they own new year's Day. I wonder again. I have great admiration for Delaney and the fact that I would give him the credit here. I think you can correct a For being able to do this and then what did the SEC do. As you've reported Mike's life came in and said okay. If they're going to do that we wanna own the sugarbowl Slob of the problem with the sugar. The ball slot. Mike is at the game. Doesn't start till nine o'clock right. You know that's you know that's an aspect active Of all the experts that we talked to media marketing is worth. We talked to the one criticism or the one Miss when you talk about a hitter misses that kept coming up was the inconsistency the scheduling and maybe not being able to capitalize as much on in the semifinal games as they would like you know we saw the TV audience really spiked with that first championship game between Satan Oregon Oregon and since then it's Kinda settled in lower number right around twenty five million viewers. That's a fantastic crowd in this definitely It definitely gives. ESPN the ability to own that that evening. But when you think about the Super Bowl being eighty five to ninety million million viewers compared to twenty five million for the College Football Championship. You wonder how. How is the CFPB championship game? Going to grow its viewership and And the inconsistency of this is one of the factors that a lot of people pointed to that that could limited going forward and and I wonder listen. I don't I don't want to minimize twenty five million people That's a big number and when you look at the most watched events of the year after the super bowl off the collar after the Super Bowl and the in the NFL playoffs College football biggest night is huge. But I'm just watching it this week and I realized the Kobe tragedy has has cast a pall but From here on as you know Michael you're in the sports business world the Super Bowl. Aw is as big of an event as there is in the world and college. Football just seem like it's sandwiched in between the NFL. Playoff off games on Saturday and Sunday right. So this schedule if you think about it There were three. NFL Sundays in between the semi finals. The final amazing and so that goes back to the consistency question the scheduling and being able to maximize the opportunity to college. Football has to to own certain days as and when you think about cargo owning January first and neither the finals nor the semifinals are on January. First it seems a little counterintuitive and January. I was a huge day. I mean the the audience for the Michigan Alabama Citrus Bowl was was Gargantuan and so it's not like ESPN is going broke on this. I mean they're still doing pretty well. And maybe maybe the maybe. Maybe they're better off owning the semi final day and New Year's Day. I don't know I'm just a lowly employees at ESPN. But my question to you is what happens next We're sick. We're we're six years in then every year. There's this rampant speculation that something's about to change and it never seems to. You know all these people you spend a lot of time with the college football powerbrokers our brokers Between now and when are they going to alter if assuming they are the college. Football playoff are more people are more schools getting again we. That's a great question and an access is is definitely one of the one of the questions that I post a lot of the people that work in that space and There's there seems to be a consensus that that the commissioners at least are willing to talk about. That's a good thing. That's a step forward but I don't know of anyone who thinks it's going to happen before this. This twelve year contract runs. It runs its course and so it could happen in the next contract. I I definitely think it's something that will be discussing the talk about you know not keep coming back to this loyalty to bowl games. One of the one of the arguments that I hear against the eighteen playoff is about those four teams that lose in the in the quarterfinals awesome. They don't get the bowl experience. Well if you're one of those four teams they lost in the quarterfinals. Would you rather have a shot at being in the playoff. Who would you rather be able to spend a couple of days at a theme park having your bowl experience and so those it almost sounds kind of silly but those are the kind of conversations that are taking place when they're contemplating expansion and let me ask you Michael I mean this year we had the the the the peculiarity of the lending tree bowl in mobile with all due. Respect to lending three which happens to be headquartered around the corner from where we were sitting having a bowl game on Monday night and I realized I was a Corcoran the schedule but that late in the process I mean is that experience really that meaningful. I I've been to the College Football Bowl Association. I've heard what those guys say and they work very hard but still It just seems discombobulated up to me and many others. Yeah you know I. I guess that's just to me the the the the mid to third week in December bowl and and also the ones that you're talking about leading up to the championship game and early January. I just you know. Obviously they're important. TV CONTENT FOR ESPN but also they provide an opportunity to go on. PREGAME halftime the post game to talk about the next game. And so it's all part of the build up in an intersection that way. You know one other thing. I was thinking about fall. We're talking about kind of the future of the CFP in this current contract in years. Eleven and twelve. They're still to championship game sites to be determined. And that's something that will happen in the next couple of years but That's one of the things I'm GONNA be. Watching is what two cities are able to land. There's there's last two championship games in this twelve year cycle. What I'm curious before you go? What what are the next couple of years? Look like for the CIP in terms of In terms of site well Indianapolis is in there somewhere. It it is Is going to go obviously Miami and La to the new stadium in Houston. Okay then those last two years are to be determined. But you could definitely envision like Las Vegas a while you could invade eh envision somebody like Orlando that has bid for championship games in the past. you could go to north to a minneapolis or two met met life in New Jersey New York Those are those are some of the sites that I think this year Vegas is going to get a pretty good workout with what's to the NFL draft and everything else. It's hard to imagine not being in the Niger. That's a lot of a lot of places are going Michael Michael Fascinating If it's a really incredible read and of course anytime Vince Thompson is quoted. My eiser all over it Thank you for coming coming on. Just just one of the most knowledgeable people in the industry and you must follow Michael to keep up with things in the sports business platform.

The wanting to people whose identity he seemed to have captured exceptionally well better than anybody I've ever seen right on his individual is learner at the clippers would fire Bruce Bowen for criticizing and we're Kawhi Leonard doesn't play for them yet. They would certainly think out of the box and figure not only Hawaii, but how can we, how can we better tap into what makes these guys tick? Lee Jacobs seems to get in the heads of these players and these athletes, and he's subjects that he writes about as well if not better than anybody else doing it. So I like it you the clippers and no matter how much money Steve bomber has thrown at the organ.

I don't wanna make it seem like, oh, they're hiring somebody, you know, hire a coach who, you know, has a relationship with a player in his a you days to see if that gets him an ends at a player when really not gonna help the organization. I'm sure Lee Jenkins will be of greater help to the clippers than simply, hey, give us a smaller percentage chance or greater percentage asking quiet Leonard, but I'm sure has something to do with.

So we're going to get to volunteer Davis in a second. Michael Smith has a very strong words for auntie Davis. He was as upset with vaunting Davis play with as I've ever. As I said about anything, so we'll get to that in a in a second. We'll get to the Emmys as well. Was anyone watching the Emmys? It's television changed so much that that we're not watching the Emmys anymore. Do the means include Netflix and Hulu all they take everything? Yeah. Yeah. I watched the monologue and Colin just was very funny. It was Michael CIA. Yup. Link college was he was saying he actually, but she. Okay, I'm gonna call shed. Totally kidding. I'm gonna go cheat or check, but he made a very funny joke. Both of them to funny joke, saying, welcome to the thousands of people watching live here and to the hundreds of people watching at home on their television aren't that is the ratings way down for the means. I just think the ratings are way down for almost everything except game of thrones. Right. Like except Monday night football. I flip back and forth between Monday night. Football name is a lot. I was waiting for Donald Glover to win. You know, I don't think he did not mistaking you still waiting. They'll wait, wait, wait, Atlanta to win. I want to get to that in a second. But first you've got nor McDonald going on the view. He's got a Netflix show coming out. He said some things about Louis c. k. and Roseanne. And he was saying that the victims of the metoo movement and the Roseanne situation that the victims didn't experience exactly what Louis c. k. did Roseanne didn't. Of course he's now clarifying. He's saying, what about the victims while the victims haven't gone through this, this particular event? Of course, the victims have gone through worse than that, but am I going to get a victim to phone Roseanne because he was telling Louis c. k. to call Roseanne. He was saying, he's taken out of context regardless the point being Sean Penn has now climbed into this mix. And I just think the lesson here is meant shut up. You've got just no place in this conversation just you got, no, yeah. Every once in a while someone's going to get, you know, misreported and a woman's gonna make something up, but I just don't understand Sean Penn's need to get into this conversation and give them the. The male explanation on victim after victim coming fourth of a, I understand that men are worried about being falsely accused, but why do we need to hear from men on on this on? Why on the things that are wrong about the metoo movement. I agree with you on hearing from men about the things that are wrong about the metoo movement or a men when it's a from a a less than constructive place when they're not helping the conversation. But I only thing I disagree with is I do think men need to be as much part of the conversation because women being the conversation by themselves when it comes to issues of sexual assault or gender issues like, that's that's not enough, you know, men need to be at the forefront of that conversation. Not just cheerleaders nine. Just a minute ago. My my bad. What I meant was the idea of getting in here and finding your objections to the metoo Moser. The flames are going to grab you on that one.

I don't think thirty for thirty is the spot. I think it's something we should probably look into. I think it'd be interesting, but I could see that being on like e. Saying the equipment. Okay. Yes. I am there for that to re kale. Fifth round pick Monterey vaunting Davis. That was almost fine. Michael Smith, Michael Smith was just in here asking what is doing because this is all he was doing during the break and Michael says him, do you believe what you're saying? What are you saying? And he's like, I don't know. I'm just I'm just listening guys who were drafted in the fifth round. That's what he's done with his work day today. He's coming here for an hour. He's searched fifth round picks, and he keeps blurting fifth round, big alva- job, automate Browns fans feel better. I try to make Browns fans. Listen. Dan thinks that what the Browns did was was stupid. He thinks it was a dumb move and how the rest of the legal out of patriots to go out and get Josh Gordon at the very least you should get them stash away to the patriots. Don't get them. I agree with that. But what fun is it if we all agree with it. So I just gotta eat a play the other side and give them some guys hall of famers who were drafted in the fifth round Mike Webster about that about a Browns, though, Brown's draft in the first round player. That's a good point they can. They can. They can't get. I. You also don't play the other side. You don't have to play the other side. Well, then we're all just agreeing and that's not sports. Okay. But better to just do it insincerely. His motto time, there is some gymnasts he to your point though. I mean, there is value in that draft pick. It's something that they got Josh Gordon, is it the best thing they got Josh Gordon? That's the thing I believe to believe. I would say the only the patriots are really good at right are taking draft picks right, and they'll throw in a fifth to try to move up maybe in the first round. That's something that they do. I think pretty routine LeBron's maybe to do the same thing. I mean, it clearly is the best thing that could have got for Josh Gordon. They called around the league and they even leaked out, hey, the page. Oh, right. No, not say hard to believe. I don't mean that they took less from the patriots. I mean, like you mean to tell me, nobody in the league could have given a fifth round pick which will probably be higher than the patriots fifth round pick to get Josh Gordon or couldn't have come to some kind of agreement that did not involve giving back a seventh round pick if he's not active for ten game. Mike says this though. Right? Because we all we have all been trained to think that way that of course, the offer, they took it the best offer, but the last big trade, the patriots made. Was Garoppolo and them not getting the best offer, like what? So I don't know what extenuating circumstances are here or could be here, even had of the patriots always have a fifth round pick even after they used their fifth round pick yesterday, we discussed three timeouts that just get three more. They always have three time out. Then they always have a fifth round pick they do. I mean, my favorite detail, all the reporting has said it would have been a sixth round pick for the patriots didn't have one. So it became a fifth round. And I only say jokingly, I'm with Dan. No, I you would think that the league would collude when it comes to this, they would say, you know what? We're not going to let Bella checks show us how it's done. Again, I was arguing that if you're Jacksonville, you just take Josh Gordon and don't play fifty third player just even if it's just a statue on the.

They were out on him when they were into two. The two thousand and one season more more Lewis needs to be right next to the hall of fame now. Now Bella check probably would have been split. So at some point 'cause he was never high on Blitzer he would've probably been split. So anyway, at some point, I don't think there's any kind of secret that people pretty much know that by now. But if not for Tom Brady and what he became, who knows what Bella check is because ballot check didn't have the receipts in Cleveland. Now, again, Bellas game plan from Super Bowl, twenty five in the hall of fame he to your point. He had done it as a defense coordinator on the highest of levels, but as a head coach, it will all kinds of questions about how he related to players about whether he his rules were too rigid, whether he was going to hard until he got his quarterback. I like Matthew Stafford. It didn't help, but you quarterback door five picks, no, it does it. It does not. Now let me ask this because I think that everything you're saying there, there's there's a basis to it right. And also people forget people were out on Bella check. What was it the next year when he cut lawyer Malloy after the lost. The first game did nothing. Nothing in buffalo. Right? Bledsoe and loyal Malloy they were into that year. They lost the buffalo and Philadelphia. Yeah, so start that season will only to anyone every game. But what also happened was Bella check constructed a defense in two thousand one. There really carried that team through those three Super Bowl wins, right? Like they had Willie mcginest already there and by the way guys that he had coach Tedy Bruschi because he had been there ninety six, their previous stint. So there was a defense there that was able to carry it 'cause that offense was not impressive and did not have a level of talent down borders, sit at Tom Brady was great at throwing sideways. Yeah, thousand and one. I thought it was the craziest thing in the world when they decided to March down the field at the end of that Super Bowl because I was like, oh, this granny, JR Redmond was running back. Think on metals, a lot of crazy stuff that happened paramedic McVay out here, which memory watch that game with somebody who went to high school with JR Redman never be able to in LA right folks. Remnant his his, the other one antone Smith. That's right. By the way, let me give you a great factoid Kevin Faulk in one, nine hundred five number one. Recruit in high school was Randy moss. The number two was Kevin fall. I believe it. I wouldn't know what it was number two, but Kevin folk in highschool. Anybody LSU you local. You know this having Kaethe easy Slidell zone man l.

"Lewis makes an interesting point there. He talks about a Bill Walsh and the west offense in Montana and all of this and one of the things. One of the things that Joe Montana resented about Bill Walsh was Walsh did not look at Montana as a great quarterback Walsh looked at Montana as a great vessel for his genius to to do. The offense is right west goes off, its has no audibles and all of that stuff. And so a lot of these coaches are looking at these cats and they're like, know this is someone that will help me my genius just do what my offense is. My offense has all the answers. And so I wonder if that's what happens in Buffalo's. They look at him as, oh, okay, this guy has all the answers from my office. The problem is the other dude. That's not what he is at all. Josh Allen looks department. Would you got after that? Yeah, I'm asking for real. I got nothing. I honestly have nothing other than he looks like they say a quarterback is supposed to look like, but going back to peterman's ability to execute the system and him being, you know, the guy that that would express their genius. What makes them look like idiots though is like the way we own this the way they wanted to do it. Because if that's the way they want to do to start him day one, they wanted to like much like Cleveland is doing. They want to take their time and introduce Josh Allen when he was ready. He's no more ready this week than he was last week. And so this is how guys careers get ruined. I and I hope I'm wrong about him. I hope in two, three weeks. We're talking about him in a way where you're okay. They just they should have started from day one best case scenario. But this idea of a system quarterback to me just like gay manager needs to become something that we realized aid is bad as as it used to sound gay, manage that used to be low. Slur when it came to quarterbacks? No. First and foremost, you're supposed to be a game manager before anything else. I'll be a system quarterback any day of the week because very few dues, I'm talking about two or three at the most to it. I'm not even talking about in the in active quarterbacks. I'm talking about ever transcended transcended their supporting cast. Yeah, it just made anybody that you put around him better. I'm talking about and I'm not offense offense of line receivers. I'm talking about defense, coaches, staff their circumstances because you've seen so many dudes out whether this, whether it's Jim, Plunkett jump look. It goes goes on to win Super Bowls. When early in his career, he was trash. You know why? Because of supporting cast trash because the patriots drafted him not these patriots the old days, right? They drafted him. They were awful. So many quarterbacks or simply just at the mercy of being drafted into the wrong situation. And I feel like Josh Allens about to be the next guy and maybe he could never could've never played. I don't know. Well, yeah, that's what I was about to say. Maybe. B. but we'll never really know if you mismanaging him like nobody's business that is want to notice what says the word dude. I can't though screen pet, right, right. About a man. I do the ball through a wall of fortunately that is not. They got no walls on the field Touche. Right. That's and I feel bad both the Peterman and Josh Allen. I feel bad at times and way I talk about them because they really doing the best they can. It's not. They fall, somebody told into they could was NFL right now. They fake it till they made it, they they totally did. And so we are going to see buffalo by the way playing the chargers. As we said again, this, we really came down to do not put him out there and you see those uniforms. Yes, you might start to them again to have been that that is that is why I think more than anything else that is not out there because they're like not doesn't PTSD baby. Head. All right. We'll be back in a minute to talk about math, Patricia. First football season is finally underway, and if you play fantasy.

"Let the next ally manning learn behind linemen to your point about normal. Well, quietly, I think the Browns did is right in the way they did it with Baker Mayfield love it, ironically, doing it with the quarterback. Yes, that's about to say the thing that is interesting about this because we may feel we're going to see how it goes with Mayfield, but there is a significant amount of history to indicate that a player, his size. It is difficult for that player to be successful as in NFL quarterback. Right? He's not Russell Wilson because Russell Wilson is next level athlete. Baker Mayfield is athletic for quarterback Russell. Wilson is something else now drew. Brees is a different case right drew Brees is the one that's probably most comparable, especially if you're out to mystic with Baker, what he said about optimistic, we saw what he said, but we also remember it took three years for drew. Say drafted, Philip rivers, the best ups are traded drafted Eli, but the best lied to remember about this is ju- breeze wants one comeback player of the year without being injured. That's what it took order for him to come comeback player year. You can either be injured or really bad, right, right. He will come back from what Purdue there was. There was no place for the comeback to come from, but I thought the Browns winning look. There is a ceiling on Toronto Taylor, and I think that we all know that. And I think that's fair to say, but I also think that this is a do. That's pretty good, right? Like the year that Kirk cousins head is quote, unquote breakout was twenty fifteen. He didn't make the Pro Bowl that year. Draw Taylor did make the Pro Bowl that year and in buffalo decided to run them out. No, I think Cleveland was. I looked. We got all these picks we can afford to spare. One will trade that added there. We'll get this dude, and then we don't have to put our guy out there until we feel good that he's ready or that teams good enough around him. All of those things. Meanwhile, in buffalo, they. Came back out here with Peterman again. Any looked like the Peterman had looked before and now they're gonna throw, Josh, Anna out there behind that terrible offense of line. And I don't blame them because I don't know what other option they had this. They made this bad Nick sleep in it at this point. And this is c. this is higher star. So honestly decide starts and real quick is going back to Cleveland. I think Cleveland also felt like we've passed on enough franchise quarterbacks. We gotta get one this year. What were the other we get in war? Yes, we are not making the Carson wins the Shawn Watson, the steak. Again, back to buffalo society starts, no man because like look, maybe Josh Allen. Maybe he's got something to them that we just haven't seen yet, and he's shocked CES this week and beyond maybe shows maybe shows enough this week to say, okay, he's not going to get destroyed by this situation, but this the one thing I do problem with the draft as a concept. I love the process, but the downside of it is these kids. Are literally at the mercy, forget the financial implications of it all or just the the, the labor implications of on talking about strictly from like how your career plays out is really often determined on one somebody's opinion of you as a college player, vis-a-vis where they select you and who selects you in a draft to their competence, air ability to surround you use with the proper supporting cast and put you in a position to succeed. Okay. And so now Josh Allen because they did this the wrong way a give it to Ron Taylor be going back to Peterman again, like if you felt so strongly about the, I'm sorry, the Peterman if you feel so strongly about the Peterman to go to again and week one, why you change your mind? One game in like Sean McDermott like this, the right move for a franchise. I don't know if you right God. It'd be telling me what the right which is is after what she pulled last year, you lucky you made the playoffs last year because to rod..

"Absolutely right. It's hurt for New York. The guy whose face never moved, and so when everything's going crazy or whatever it is, I feel like that'll be a good thing about having Sam darnold and I think yes, they could get a hall of fame caliber running back in Barclay like that's the way that this could ultimately end, but see, I didn't feel like as good as Barkley was at Penn State. I didn't feel like he was as good as Adrian Peterson, wasn't college feel like he was as good as Todd Gurley was in college. So I did not think he was a guy that you take number two and win, or the giants going to get this quarterback as if they mess around and go six and ten, five and eleven this year is going to be go, find a quarterback and who's the quarterback. They're gonna go, well. So go back to number two for a second. Few people were as good as Adrian Peterson and tiger was damn good Georgia. So go right to number two. So you thinking they should've taken if not darnold and may feel was obviously gone. You think they should've taken the Allen Rosen? Not Lamar Jackson at higher, probably. But you think it should have been Eleanor Rosen if not Darnell that too. Are you saying that. Draft should've produce a quarter. If you were to ask me what quarterback going in should have been taken as prob, not even the number one pick, right, but the first quarterback to take, I thought it was Josh Rosen. Okay. I thought that that was a do they should take? No, I do not think that they should have been so thirsty that they went out there. The number two pick took Josh Allen, like I don't believe fit the Bill in New York. I don't know about him there. See nothing is this, like all things being equal, you take the quarterback, but what if evaluation for forget, you know, ally Manning's age and declining skill set. But what if an evaluation and this is how I feel about it if you just stack them side-by-side darnold versus Barkley as a player, it's not. It's not that close. I think there's favorite position is that a premium, don't get me wrong, but I mean, I'll just take saquon Barkley for whatever quarterback. I eventually gets a hand off to write that guys that good. But I think their rationale was we have a quarterback. Yeah. I don't think have. If you do not alone. Right, right. Like I think that taking saquon Barkley was a win now move. Four. Right now like that. That to me was what it came down to because I think the Barclay can be really good. I think he's a physical marvel if nothing else, but I just it's their affection for manning that I find confusing now agree with that. But I also at that at the number two spot, you do have to take the best player, you know, or Trey down. Yeah, right. You've got the option to train down because look, if you put Baker Mayfield side by side with saquon Barkley I think saquon Barkley would probably seem to be the better player, but they needed a quarterback. The Browns could've taken crown Barkley. Yeah. Yeah, you know, and look, the giants have been trying to get a guy they hoped might be the next to right later. These getting Davis Webb in the second round, for example, like, you know, they've, they've made some moves in kind of halfway trying to do it. I just look at them like you one, those two Super Bowls, ally man quit while you're ahead, man, take that for the good fortune that it was funny. Just bring it back to my summer, my epic summer, I've been telling people like, you know what? Take vacation or take time off when you're not forced to take medication, you know when when you're not unemployed and your between jobs like take him when his inconvenient everybody else. You know what I'm saying? Likewise, get a quarterback before you got to don't get a quarterback. We need a quarterback. Because now you reach in now you reach a Josh Allens and that sort of thing. Whereas, you know, you take one and get a chance to do it the right way..

"Like the way this goes is just not as simple as people wanted to be. But man, he got a team. Third St. Thurs make it happ well, the traded up to get him for that very reason that Thursday to make it happen to city and the families thirsty to make it happen. I look, I think he's going to be good. Is he going? Is he so good? What? What? Tickles me. I didn't hear anybody suggesting that the giants messed up by taking saquon Barkley over Sam darnold taking the running back instead of the air parents ally manning. Now, all of a sudden I'm seeing and I don't know if it's just for, you know, you know, for clicks or for attention or just that's what we do. We we debate whatever topics manufacturer like come on now. So now all of a sudden after one game, the giants messed up by not taking Sam darnold instead taking a guy has a potential to be a hall of fame caliber running back. I think that's a little ridiculous. I'll tell you though. I have been doing this from the jump. You thought they go to bed. Okay, cool. Corden is you at the beginning as long as you would have throughout the whole draft process, Santa giants recorder back? I can respect that, but not after we weren't. Yeah. No, no. I was there from the beginning on you guys need to get a quarterback because I think that the giants saying no, everything that's happened in the last few years related to ally manning and him not playing well was actually not ally. Manx fault is. Even if you did feel that way, ally manning is in year fifteen man, you gotta go get a quarterback. There's no way around that. And they went into a draft with a zillion quarterbacks and they didn't take one. And it was simply because they still think they have a franchise quarterback in do that. I would argue was never a franchise quarterback. Now, if you were to point it to Darnell because I wasn't sold on darnold coming out. So I'm not going to be like, I thought they should've taken Sam darnold, but I do think that with the jets got was their ally manning not in terms of how they play your skill..

"I was just excited to being a press box and an and overwhelm with with joy and clear to be talking to. Professional athletes that I just finished literally rooting for in college, right? So I had to kind of shut that make an is a moth in my brain. And so ever since then, I of train myself just to look at the story of the process thing for a second. And I know this is where I'll lose you, but that's why I was always so obsessed with the draft. Yes. Team constructions was always a thing that that I, that I really enjoyed it really intriguing. I think the draft I find the draft to be interesting. I see kind of how people get into it. My thing was it, oh matter from right on the front end. That was why people like whatever I thought on the front end, they can show me on the back end. I'm willing to wait exactly thing. Now, let's all about actual football that's going on here. I am here in New York City. You are in the periphery of. General vicinity. A Bristol's calling cars, two hours away from New York. Yeah, that far away, you know, but y'all, Sam darnold Monday night, look, good. There's nothing else. We could say the Sam darnold look good if something's going on here that actually can't wait to have happened in the city is what if the jets are good, right? Like I work in, I work in office my Greenberg. I don't see him as much now because our tape in time change, but I'm just imagining all the happiness of the jets fans who have never experienced happiness before. Of course, it comes crashing down. I was about to say, because if the jets are good, all that means is that their eventual pumpkin at the hands of the patriots and it'll be that much more painful. Yes, that's really what it comes down to the what net long ago when they kind of own the town a little bit on the back pages when Rex Ryan was doing his thing, you know, they had their their time when they were going to the AFC title game remark Sanchez. I mean, look, they've been here before the young quarterback who they thought was was good, wasn't that long ago and I'm not. I'm not suggesting that Sam darnold is ever going to butt fumble in the near future, but it, yeah, if there's a certain electricity, a certain energy and a certain. Enthusiasm. That's just for lack of a better phrase, real cute about jets fans when they get excited about their team. But I think this is a different one though, because so for one, I think that darnold is a different caliber talent Sanchez. Anything is if you go back and look at Sanchez number those his rookie year, they don't look different than gino's Smith's numbers. His rookie year they were basically the same guy Sanchez had a lot more around him including having a better defense. And that kind of takes me to wear this thing with darnold is interesting because he that awful pass start the game, but then he looked pretty good for the rest of the way, but the thing that's lost in this is the rest of the jets at. I think they looked pretty good. It belies may just look really bad, but this wasn't just like, oh, my God is only about Sam darnold looked to be top to bottom better, not do look like they have some interesting town around him, especially on offense. And that was Jemaine Kerr's being out on offense. They got some guys that run the rock behind him, and they got some guys and catch. The ball noone was a great guy to get back because he had a nice season a couple of. Ago before we heard his neck. So yeah, we'll talk about Josh Allen the the Peterman out later on, I'm sure, but just as an example, like forget about what the guy has or doesn't have inherently, you know, like he's savvy mature beyond his years. He's smart, any other..
