"mike tannenbaum" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Burns I'm sorry. I know a lot of people are upset by that news elissa laying. Be, face, and voice, you hear on network. Eliza is joining me today Elizabeth. Thank you so much. I think we're going to have a ton of fun today, but I I was baptized on the Dan Le Show a couple of weeks ago. With these guys, what do you know? What do you expect from today's show? I'M NOT GONNA lie I'm a little nervous, a more excited than nervous. I'm no burns I'll throw that out there I know he's your co host. I'm a lot more fun than Peter. Burns. No. I'm just getting I. Love You Peter. I don't know a ton ton about the Dan Le Batard show like this is a show that I have on, have had it on a lot more in quarantine. Than I had typically, but I will say. My first like experience with the show was when you guys had Jeff Passan on. And he did the ELMO voice for the first time and I was actually in Bristol watching it on one of the in an office, and I was in here's laughing, and then I met Jeff Passan a couple days later, and I forgot that I had never met him before. When I was just like Jeff. Do the voice and he was like? Who are you sure? Then, I much passing and the person who has elmo impression on the face of face the planet. Thanks to a love Dr Show for figuring that out. considered a great icebreaker career. Cody tell her what she should expect it. And what kind of advice because you guys didn't give me any ought? To the fire which? Feel like it would have been nice to get a little bit of a pointers here and there. I don't think I have any advice. She says she's ready to have fun. That's good advice right there. I would give her now. She got me thinking there. Does she have any impressions? She would like to show us like Jeff does elmo. Does she do any? The answer could be no more. I'm more of a quote person honestly like I. Don't know if I'm in the impressionist, but like I've been known to throw out some quotes here and there specifically marvel movies and Austin powers movies. So I do one impression of the Irish character on Austin powers, but I don't think that's quite appropriate for radio, so I'll try to keep my family friendly Austin powers quotes to a minimum for the next three hours. We might get to that. Just just wait. It can go the wheels really really really fast. Bell who puts up. I have some advice for you. I would take this for seriously I. Just be myself. Don't try to do the show that you think people want and stay off the Internet because the fans while they're very supportive, are savages and they're going to destroy you and they're gonNA. Take their frustrations out with Dan is to God's not being here on you and Katie and it's not your fault. You're just doing your thing, so don't really pay attention to them eventually. They'll like you, but they may hate you today you can find me at. At ELISSA laying for all your hate. Send it I just closed my twitter page. I, won't it for another three hours? I was great advice. It is good advice. I wish I would've known that early on because I read like every negative comment and every email with Peter and we cried a little bit, but you know we got through it and here we are on the other side. Guests on the Dan lebatardshow appear via the Shell Pennzoil. Performance Line lucky for us. There's still a lot to pack with the situation with the MARLINS. As most everyone knows at this point, the Marlins had at least eleven players, two coaches test positive over the past few days, forcing the postponement of both Monday and Tuesday's home game against the Baltimore Orioles. Melissa actually remained in Philly where it played over the weekend and was retested on Monday pending the results The marlins are scheduled to resume play Wednesday, in Baltimore if the results are acceptable rob Manfred Mlb. Commissioner sat down with Tom Verduci of the MLB network last night. Here's how he views the marlins situation. I don't put this in the nightmare. Category I mean obviously. We don't want any player to get exposed. It's not a positive thing, but I don't see. It is a nightmare. We built the protocols to allow us to continue to play. That's why we have the expanded rosters. That's why we have the pool of additional players, and we think we can keep people safe and continue to play. Obviously. There's been an impact for the MARLINS. The Yankees and phillies first game of the series was postponed last night. The phillies hosted the Marlins this weekend, so we're still waiting to see what their test results show. Were they infected from the three game series over the weekend? We're also getting news out of Jeff Passan from ESPN that tonight's game at Citizens Bank Park between the phillies and the Yankees will also be postponed as well I'm curious from all of you guys. Rob Manfred doesn't feel like this is a nightmare situation. Billy I know you go to opening day I know you are a marlins fan through and through. I know they also haven't been very relevant for quite some time. If this was the Yankees or the dodgers, would this be considered more of a nightmare situation with with the tone? Be Different for this conversation. So a bit of an update, that just came out I think Ken Rosenthal the athletics, reporting that there's four more positive k through the marlins from the second batch of that they did yesterday so now the team between players coaches, there's seventeen I think total cases on the Marlins I, think it's a big deal, I mean if it was the Yankees or the Red Sox I think that it would still be the same deal I think because it's the marlins and it's not really. You don't think that they're going to be in it at the end of the season, even though they are off to a hot start, it's not viewed as much of a big deal because it's not gonNA impact end of the season I guess as much as maybe the Red Sox. The Yankees dodgers would but I think it's a big I think it's interesting that they think that the protocol seems to be working and that it's under control and that they're just going gonNA. Continue with the season, not knowing how far this reaches because. The MARLINS got in Atlanta. They could have given. It's the braves players that could have given us. A phillies players. Braves could have given us the met, so it could extend well beyond just the Marlins. At this point, it just seems like right now. The marlins are kind of the epicenter of the positive test. While listening that go ahead. I'm sorry. I just want to jump in because yesterday Tim. Curtain, I think, said this better than anybody what happens to the marlins on, and they had four people test positive was a red flag, and then yesterday when we found out a third of their roster had it was a double red flag so I'm going to go ahead and say what billy just reported is the third red flags. We have three red flags in three days of the MARLINS. Though I think this is the thing eighty. Eliza when you heard that was just the four players..
"mike tannenbaum" Discussed on The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap
"A pleasure to welcome back to the show one of our favorite and most frequent guests man who used to run the jets and the Dolphins Mike Tannenbaum Mike. Thank you for being with us into Germany and hope you and your family your chase been doing as well as possible. Thank you sir. Same same for you and your family. Y- This is going to be obviously very different. It is in I guess we're calling it. A virtual draft There's there's no central meeting place Picture being made from the homes. I guess of executives. I imagine summer. Probably go to the office to. I don't know the exact details. What what are your heat. What are you hearing from your former colleagues counterparts about how all of this is going to work and what concerns they might have yeah? I think everyone feels like within reason. They'll be able to make the picture. I think where it gets a little bit more complicated with trades because we're trades you know typically Jeremy you're you're dealing with the team below you or in front of you and you're having multiple conversations at the same time so I think to the extent that trades will feel a little bit different this year. I think that's where people are. Probably the most Hung Up. What about the technology? I mean there must be concerned. Seems like never expect something to work a certain way and especially when you're doing it the first time they're going to be glitches. There could be major consequences right if if the technology would of the cell phones aren't working right or the communication between the League and the teams Goodell. I guess we'll be at home in suburban New York. I need there must be some trepidation out there. I would imagine there surely is a and that's why there's GonNa be multiple layers here in Germany and turns out. They're going to have a phone as well as video conferencing. So what you're hearing from the Lee. The League is understandably usually fastidious. When it comes to rules and deadlines but I think they're gonNA have a lot more just common sense in terms of if someone if allying drops. The video conferencing goes out for whatever reason that they'll they'll allow him team to make pick because typically if you don't make your pick within the a lot of time then the next team can jump in front of you but nobody wants to see that happen this year especially just given the fact that a lot of these decision makers will be from their homes and not you know not all. It situations are created. Speaking with Mike Tannenbaum he is the former executive vice president football operations for the dolphins general manager of the New York jets and now. Spn commentator. And I'm sure you're talking again to a lot of Executives around the league in just General Terms Mike. How is this going to how this going to work? I mean you said they're gonNA have phone lines. Obviously they're gonNA have video but you know if you're the guy making the decision in that moment you gotTa make the pick and you've got scouts and you've got coaches and yeah I mean I know. Everybody has a different kind of draft room. How are they going to manage all just the communications when they're making those calls? Yeah I think what were your she a lot of this year and Kennedy Ohio. This was done. You know even in normal times everything. We'll be prepackaged. Which is you have a pretty good sense to say. Hey if we if we have these four players on the board we don't make trade. Let's decide ahead of time here. The four we're GONNA take in exactly what order so just in case something happens and again you know we lose align. The video conferencing goes out. We will have our decisions literally prepackaged and then there's something really really weird would happen and those four players are gone for whatever reason you know then ultimately the general manager just has to pull the trigger and you know the steward of the franchise do what's best but I think you'll see you know you'll have team say hey we're going to go with these four guys these five guys in this order. I I think they're probably a lot of people out there who are going to be watching the draft who who are in some part of them for the amusement factor are hoping to see some kind of a glitch when you're watching. Are you expecting to see something like that happened? I think when it's all said and done something will happen somewhere along the lines that you know two teams. We'll call it the same play your or I mean if all those perfect then let's tip our hats in the league and more people more poorly to the great. It people but at some point you know some player. Big a call from two teams just seems like over the course of three days. And several rounds. You know something can happen. I'd say Mike many many years ago I was the host of a draft Not on ESPN It was on the Internet. I it was the initial Israel Baseball League draft. I think it was the only Israel. Baseball League draft and Dan Duquette was in charge of the League. And we were doing it. I think from Cardozo Law School in downtown New York and it was all done over the Internet and he drafted for all the teams which is a different situation of I don't really know what I'm saying. Other than I wanted to bring up the old Israel Baseball League virtual dragons and done before but it was less complicated situation and dare I say less consequential. We had Jim Nagy on the show earlier and he was saying that he thinks this is a great draft And he also said that he thinks you can get players in the second and third round. It's a special draft in the sense that the deceleration between the players are going to be available in the second and third rounds is not that great from the players available in the first round. How do you feel about that assessment? I think certain positions I think falls off quickly at corner for example I figure falls off quickly at a pass rush but as it relates to. Let's say receiver or running back. I think that's pretty much true so I think we're seeing a lot of strategy. I think we're seeing how to really really good receivers go You know in the second third round guys that could come in and play and I think that's why you go back to veteran free agency TERMI and we saw a lot of receivers not get what they wanted. Because teams are looking at this year as receivers say like we. We should help ourselves. You know later on we you were making these calls yourself. Mike and you were assessing talent at the receiver position You know They're obvious factors that way into any kind of decision like that. But what were the things that were most important to you? I think it came down to really just a couple of fundamental things Taliban character and one steps before beating your baseline town like how good of a player are you. And then the character sets ceilings. Meaning how hard are you GonNa work? Will you avail yourself to resources to make yourself the best player possible and the more you can have a high floor and a high ceiling? That was out. You know. Obviously the best case scenario but I think this year what we're GonNa see in particular is. I believe we're going to see a lot of high floor players meaning players. That aren't risky players. That should for whatever reason have at least a solid career come from big schools You don't have to project a lot because not being able to get your hands on these players as much as you typically can I think is gonNA lead to a little bit more conservative. Serve decision making so. It really benefits Those players who are national TV every week played it. Big Programs is what you're saying the small school guys This this is not a good situation for them. Correct and I think for players to really unusual Situation with injury and doctors not being able to examine the player. I think it's going to hurt him in particular Even with all the other ways that you can assess that and all the other ways. They're trying I if they can't have their own doctors it. It's just another question mark that doesn't get answered and so it affects it that I mean that all makes sense. Yeah and and and again because you're dealing with such consequential decision making In terms of taking that player in the top five I think this year that injury particular. It's GonNa be hard to track that player so high. We're speaking with Mike Tanenbaum. Formerly the general manager the jets and the head of football operations with Miami Dolphins more than two decades in the NFL NOUN ESPN commentator. As the draft approaches Thursday night. We talked about this earlier in the show as well Mike. The talent versus character equation and talent is much easier to assess. Obviously when you talk about character and when you talk about adaptability To the situations one faces as a professional athlete in the team environment. Everything else How how do you come to decisions as an executive that you feel comfortable with assessing those things? When you know so much of it has to be guesswork Character ultimately in life. Germy comes down to how you treat people that can help you. How do you treat the waiter waitress? The bus driver the cab driver and when you're with a team work really really hard to try to figure that out so that's the part that You spend a lot of time with you. You rely on your area scouts. I was in an interesting situation. Going back to two thousand sixteen where Laremy. Tunsil had a video. That came out shortly before the draft. He had obviously hit a bump in the road and we relied on his character from his area. The the Scots report was very good and he was a good personality. Made a mistake. We drafted him when he was the Best Player. Town of refresh my memory Mike. I remember vaguely tunsil video. What was it so he was smoking with a gas mask on and it just looked awful. The time the optics was terrible and You know a lot of teams were scared away to draft the player. Even though he was he was the best player on our board. He was the best player on team. Sports and Became a great opportunity for us all the way thirteen. And we've got literally the best player on the board at thirteen without making a trade. Who's the guy out there this year that as an evaluator of football talent you're excited about? Who falls into kind of the sleeper category? Well asleep very bored but I because you know Jeremy. We talk a lot about how. There's like position less players now on offense someone like deebo. Samuel or even tyreek Hill Christian McCaffrey to a certain extent. Those are positioned less players on the offensive side of the ball. I think is as soon as could be on defense. He says you're good athlete. He can move around so much I think he's a guy that really could play A number of position so I can't wait to see what he looks like at the next level. We'll what where does he ended up spending most of his time lining up the the Isaiah Sims? The great player at a Clemson. I think he'll start off. Probably a safety athletically. He could do so much he can walk out and cover receivers man to man he can blitz. He could play in the box There's very few people like him if at all and He he's. He's a lot of fun to watch it. I know you know just being around some really creative defensive coaches people like ESPN REX. Ryan or Eric Mangini. Every day. Every week that game plans to look a little bit different and I'm really really excited to see what he could do as a pro player. Well it's going to be an interesting drafts in many respects Mike. We always appreciate your insights here on the show. Thanks for taking the time for us. Okay thanks so much for having me. I'm Jeremy CHIAPPA and you can listen to new editions of the sporting life every Saturday and Sunday morning on ESPN radio and ESPN APP. Beginning at six. Am Eastern time..
Jaguars ship Nick Foles to Bears, one year after signing him to $88m deal
"Radio Brady of course not the only quarterback who's on the move this week Evers teddy Bridgewater Marcus Mariota and now Nick Foles balls is heading to Chicago the bears pulling off a trade with Jacksonville Chicago gives up a compensatory fourth round pick in return for getting Nick Foles so what happens now in Chicago here's our Mike Tannenbaum and feel gates there's a restart because in in our last show we had a debate about whether we think this is Nick Foles job immediately or whether we think this is competition to pursue the starting job and he admits will battle it out during offseason workouts if we have them and then eventually during training camp if that goes on as scheduled I look at it like this the bears were settling if they stuck surface did that with Mitch Trubisky yep the rosters to well fortified in too many spots and there were too many obvious concerns and trade you're right right pace may forever have to live with the idea that he took Mitch Trubisky ten slots ahead of Patrick Mahomes and deshaun Watson we get and traded up one of the first round pick to move up one slot to get him really I'm just gonna put but it's over it's done with that I've been two thousand and seventeen fun ways to win football games and salvage I mean it and we talk about this during lunch again the like you know Matt Ryan pays to be feeling the heat a little bit right now right he knows he's got to win this year and this division is not a cake walk you've got a good Vikings team made the playoffs last year an actual Packers team within its energy efficient game last year this is not an all in move but this is a movie you have to make to put yourself back in the mix to be competitive and allow yourself to playing January football Soldier Field again they had to make so I had to make a move etrade you said what is it on the play calling which basically was a three year starter they had one winning season when I was at the Dauphin two years ago were playing against him we want him to throw the ball down the field to the left he couldn't do that he he was thirtieth in the league in average yards per attempt that's a critical statistic that compresses the field and the other thing about Ryan pace the fields point which is your locker room keeps your general manager there is a check and balance they have a championship defense to Ryan pace's credit he could walk into that locker so he felt we could go win with Mitch Trubisky after we have three years of a sample set now you walk and say Hey this guy's won a Super Bowl we have a real chance now it injects energy into that whole program it also has three years left on the contract with twenty one million guaranteed the falls also has the ability now to avoid the deal after either of the first two years in Chicago depending on his
"mike tannenbaum" Discussed on The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap
"Nfl with our own. Mike Tannenbaum a longtime NFL executive one of our NFL insiders. Mike thank you for joining us here on the sporting life. Hey great to be with you. Jeremy How are you? I'm great. I'm great and it's always a pleasure having you on the show. You have such keen insights into what's going on so I'm going to lay it all out there Is Tom Brady? Ever GonNa play for the Patriots again. I believe so. I think when the rubber meets the Road Jeremy I think he stays there. They have a good offensive line especially if David Andrews. They'RE TALENTED CENTER COMES BACK. They COULD FRANCHISE THEIR GUARD. Joe -TUNI- so when it's all said and done I would think he'll be back. I know other see differently but We will find out soon enough. If it's not New England for Brady and there have been so many other destinations that have been thrown into the conversation. How do you handicap it? If it's not New England I say on paper. Tennessee makes a ton of sense because micro their head coach he was defensive coordinator New England John Robinson knows him from his days in the New England. Front office I think one team. That's another radar that makes a ton of sense to me is Tampa Bay because last year. They were eighth overall defense a tenth of a defense in their last eight games. The two really good receivers in Chris Godwin Mike Evans. I got a couple of good tight end. Jay Howard Cameron brats so I think Tampa Bay could make a lot of sense as well. And what does that mean? Exactly In terms of the future of Jameis Winston. Yeah big variable heading into free agency. There's so many things to like about James. Obviously the three touchdown passes but I was raised in this business Oftentimes your opponents GonNa lose a game you ever have to win it. And obviously the thirty interceptions seven pick sixes if they just had a B- quarterback last year with that underrated defense. They would have competed for a playoff position. We're speaking Tanenbaum bound the former. Nfl Executive who is now in ESPN NFL insider and that raises. The question. Did Jamie's Winston situation. He's not the only one out there at what point as an executive of for Front Office and coaching staff. When when did they have to make the decision in terms of the development of somebody? You've invested in. You used a high draft pick on at the quarterback position where you're GONNA you're all in or it's time to move on. How how hard is it to make that decision Mike Jeremy? That's one of the hardest decisions to make. When when do you give up on the young hopeful ascending player in particular? When you look at the quarterback position rich Gannon Vinny Testaverde. You know to a certain extent you could make the argument for a Ryan Fitzpatrick. Sometimes it just takes a while and he has project talent so I think it's a painful difficult decision but I think you go back to his Florida state. He has turned the ball over a lot and If I was Tampa Bay given how well they play defensively. I would make change at this point in the year and we're talking in the first week of March to combine his over. The draft is still. What like six weeks away. Something like that. What does it look like in an NFL office At this point on the calendar by far the best time of year this is when you're putting your strategy together and you're juxtaposing free agency and the draft and what I mean by that when you look at the middle class of the veteran wide receiver market and just to pick a name Robbie Anderson by opinion. He lost a ton of money based on the depth of the draft at that position. Because if you need a representative wide receiver you can certainly get one in the third or fourth round this year's draft not pay a Robbie Anderson type and then go spending your money someplace else. This is a year in which there is. It seems beyond a consensus. It's unanimity that Joe. Borough should be number one pack. How do you feel about that? Conventional Wisdom and the fact that it's entirely unopposed. Well there's two concerns you would have one is urban. Meyer knows a lot about quarterback. Playing show boasts started his career at Ohio state Germany and transfer because he couldn't beat out Twain Haskins That that's a little bit of concern during housings is certainly a good player. I certainly wouldn't put him in the League category. And then secondly he had when you're a fantastic production and Mike and would take Joe Bird just to be clear but if Justin Herbert was playing quarterback at Lsu behind that line in those weapons not so sure how much different the result would have been silly. Where is Herbert's stock right now? It's extremely high with me. Because of his character his production has prototypical size if you look at how the season in particular PAC twelve championship game against Utah Rose Bowl against Wisconsin. Mvp of senior bowl threw the ball very well. Last week in Indy. So I think he's competitive. I think he's answered the bell every step of the way and I don't know what he's missing. Someone's going to have to show me why he should be a top five pick. We're speaking again with Mike. Tannenbaum in my The combine as I said is over. Who who gained the most at the combine? Who Stock went up the most After that experience I would say maybe an ambush priority high candidate but maybe MCI Becton three hundred sixty four pound offensive Lineman from Louisville. Who ran a five one? That's faster than Jimmy. Garoppolo at three hundred sixty four pounds crazy. I mean like if you really just think about that. I mean that's insane. So he was a good player. Had an through it but just to see that happen is is fascinating. I'm curious maybe it's because I'm I'm going to speak to him for outside the lines tomorrow in Atlanta. But I'm going to talk to Jalen hurts. Who's had one of those interesting college careers anyone's ever had of course At Alabama than Oklahoma this season runner up for the heisman trophy As a graduate transfer over there didn't have to sit out He's been a winner. But you know you mentioned Joe Borough. Getting bench for you know not winning the job against Wayne Haskins at Ohio state. Obviously he lost the job to to a at Alabama. Apparently he had a great combine. What are your thoughts about? Jalen hurts very intriguing to me. The axiom the tape sets the floor and the character says the ceiling it really applies to him from a standpoint of threw the ball better than I thought he broke a lot of tackles playing quarterback at both Alabama and Oklahoma. I would love to take him in the third or fourth round see work ago. There was another player. Josh Dobbs whose draft in the fourth round by Pittsburgh he gets traded Jacksonville. Very intriguing player that keeps getting better and better. Josh Dobbs has incredible character. I put it up there. Jalen hurts and I think hurts is really really intriguing to me. Of course everything we're talking about. These could all be moot points if things don't go well in terms of labor negotiations at this point or over the next twelve months and where it stands now as we speak on a Wednesday march fourth we understand a full vote of the rank and file the two thousand players approximately in the NFL. Pa is coming soon on the proposal that the owners offered up a couple of weeks ago. Where do you see this going? I hope it gets done. I've negotiated for years Jeremy. I don't think it's a perfect deal but there are no perfect deals and when you look at apples to apples a player that's coming in this year as a rookie increase the minimum wage to earn an additional four hundred ninety five thousand dollars and sixty percent of the. Nfl makes the minimum. So there's some give and take there obviously with the seventeen games but when you look at the last less padded practices. I think that helps us. Preseason game not overly consequential but certainly helps you look at some of these health sort of proxies that they have in there in terms of additional coverage. They have Places where players could get free screening for. I believe it's life or at least for twenty years so there's a lot of subtle things in there. In addition the Additional roster spots a couple of dishes practice squad players so again. Do think it's a perfect deal. Jeremy No I think it's it's a pretty good deal for both sides. It's interesting to me Mike. Right because you could argue the biggest story in sports in this country last twelve thirteen fourteen years has been the advancement of our knowledge about the effects of brain trauma. And football's been right in the middle of that story and anecdotally anyway. This point a couple weeks after this. Cba was offered up this proposal by the owners and the League It seems like The younger players Who AREN'T SUPERSTARS? Who aren't rich are going to be willing. That's the way you know. It's been handicapped so far to sign off on that seventeenth game and the extra playoff games. Now there are some things on the other side of the health equation you know. We're going to limit practices. May maybe take away one of the preseason games I understand. Does it surprise you. Will it surprise you Mike? If the players agree to more games even set against the backdrop of what we now know about head trauma and also. I should say what we don't know. Well that's a very interesting point. I think more than the number of games germy. It's about how we play in practice. I think Roger Goodell's been excellent as a thought leader in this space in terms of the game is a lot safer Just in terms of where you could hit a player helmet-to-helmet contact how we practice is dramatically. Better there's a lot less contact overall in practice. So I think if we get away from the actual number of games and really keep focusing on how we play when we do play is more important and I think we've gone to a place where the game still exciting. It's the best sport in the world and it's again I.
Bengals at the Combine in Indianapolis, taking a closer look at Joe Burrow
"With us here from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis where we will be all week so much going on. I'm waiting next with Adam. Schefter Louis Riddick Todd mcshay and Mike Tannenbaum just to catch you up right now. Here's what's happening today in Indianapolis. It will be a very busy week. At Five o'clock eastern though owners are expected to meet players to talk about the new CBA which could expand the playoffs and move to a seventeen game regular season. We've got forty seven. Nfl head coaches and GMT. We'll be talking today. You're also hear from SEC. Standouts Joe Borough and to a ton of Aloha who also addressed the media earlier today. Jonesboro put on an absolute show as you know on route to a national championship for Lsu setting an FBI. Single season record with sixty touchdown passes and Ditto. While completing a whopping seventy six percents of his passes and not only that but bro won the heisman trophy in dominant fashion receiving a record ninety point seven percent of the first place votes here. Our previous comments from Joe Borough on February seventeenth during a reception. For the Davey. O'brien award. He had this to say I do have leveraged the Bengals have their process and I have my process. We haven't even gotten to the combine yet. There's a lot of things that happened. Leading up to the draft. A lot of information gathered bras. Mother Robin shot down the idea. Her son does not want to play for the bengals. Saying we have no idea where that came from. It's a story out there that has created that doesn't have any substance at least from our perspective here Hasbro earlier today here at the combine. Of course I want to be the first pick. That's that's every kid's dream you know I've worked really really hard for this opportunity and I'm blessed to be in this position. I'm a ball player. Whoever picks me on my go show up? How play whoever for forever dressing? You know. I'm just not going to be presumptuous. About what they WANNA DO I. It's the draft. You guys have been covered it for a long time and you never know what's going to happen so we played a month longer than everyone else and everyone else's been training a month longer than us you know. I wanted to put. I don't I didn't think I'd be able to put my best foot forward here at the combine so I wanted to wait till pro day had another whole month of training and just be the best that I could be when everyone when. Everyone's eyes are on me. You know coming in. If you're the number one pick the teen is picking number one. Is there for a reason? So you're going to have to come in. There's going to be ups and downs and you've got to stay steady through the process. Our research tells us about Joe. Borough is his own man. He's not going to be talked into saying things for other people's benefits so if that's what he said. That's that's fantastic. I'm looking forward to getting to know him getting to meet him through. The process haven't been able to sit down with them yet. But we've got that on the horizon. We'll talk more about Joe. Boroughs plans to hold off throwing here at the combine. But might I'll start with you in terms of do you want? Do you not want to play for the being. You have any issues at all with where we landed at least at this point. No I mean as I said last week Joe Borough at the end he does not have leverage. The bengals have the first pick in the draft. If they want to draft. Joe Joe Borough. That's where he's GonNa go now with that. Said I think it's incumbent upon sack Taylor in the Bengal organization to create the Right Environment. Where he could come in and they could build something sustainable and truly transformative so. I think where we wended. Wendy is appropriate last week. He could've handled that better but to Joe Boroughs credit. I think they tweak things I think they're in a good spot now. He's been well-coached past week. Tower doesn't it. Yeah and Adema to your Do All your contacts. It appears that borough likely young he's projected pick. I still think that's where the bengals ultimately go. And they're sitting there and that's about this a team that needs somebody to revitalize that franchise and they are expected to look to trade Andy Dalton at some point this off season and so when you're sitting there in division with Lamar Jackson there in Baltimore think that they know that they have to get somebody in there. That's going to put some points on the Board Baker Mayfield Cleveland and this is going to be the pick for the Cincinnati bengals. Even Joe was considering trying to exercise some kind of leverage really the only leverage you have is withhold your services and not playing not report even if he was thinking along those lines. Let's say he's doing a deep dive trying to figure out exactly. Just what the Cincinnati offer as far as developing me as a quarterback. Could you blame him? Could you really blame him for wanting to dig? Deep on exactly what? What does the future going to look like during over the course of my rookie contract with this football team would exactly? What exactly is Mike Brown's commitment to go ahead and building out this roster around me because we all know a lot of what's going to happen to him has nothing to do with him and has everything to do with everything that's going to be around him. Just look at the past three or four drafts. And how certain players have benefited from going to certain to certain teams? Just look at l a look at the difference between jar rookie year in his second year. Sean mcvay came in. It flipped his rookie year. People were saying Jared Goff to Canada. All of a sudden his second year is like. Oh wait a minute. Maybe he's not so bad you couldn't blame him. If that was a thought Lewis to that point I also think an opportunity. If you're Zach Taylor to say hey what's happened in the past. It's irrelevant we're going to myself with you and we're going to build something great and we can't worry about what's happened before we have a lot of work to do. But if I'm the bengals if I have a hey coach Taylor. That's worked with quarterbacks. Like you mentioned Jared Goff Joe Boroughs Billy and character. That's a great opportunity for the bengals. Sino three things one. Is that if something were to go on with. The bengals is not going to happen in public and this has been addressed in the past week if it's going to happen behind the scenes so whatever we hear from this point on. Don't even don't even look at it. Don't think about it because it has nothing to do with with what is going on behind the scenes. The second thing is this guy's different cab he beats. It goes a Beatles drummer. He doesn't care what anyone else has done. In the past what everyone else is GonNa do in the future? He's going to do what's best for Joe Borough but the third thing I know about him is he's a football guy he's his. His brothers played linebacker at safety at Nebraska. His Dad's a almost four decades coach in football. He's a football guy at its core. He's from Ohio. Obviously I think when it's all said and done he winds up going in Cincinnati if he's number one overall pick but again. If it's GonNa Happen it's GonNa Happen. Not In the media. It's GonNa happen behind the scenes again. Joe Bro not expected to throw on Thursday. He said he just wasn't ready yet. Not a huge deal. Sam Darnold Kyla Murray. The last two years have opted not to throw here at the combine as well. What did make headlines on Sunday? Oddly enough pros hand measurements the measurable quarterbacks took place on Sunday on the smaller side. Love listen here's what he said after it was suggested his aunt size was small considering retirement after. I was informed that we slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts while he's got good company because here's what Super Bowl fifty four. Mvp Patrick Mahomes had to say who had just slightly larger hands than did borough my small Andrew doing great so far all right he should say believe in yet. Here's borough earlier today addressing his hands. Yeah I mean these measurements you can. You can take so much from them if it's a glaring issue on film with turnovers. Yeah it's probably an issue but I didn't have a lot of fumbles or anything like that so I just tried to make a little joke out of it I think it's a non factor I don't get paid to talk about. Measurements and analyze. The measurements like played to play football. So that's what I'm GONNA do. I look we're not gonNA make too much of this question. Well yet about what? They actually do what they're actually measuring here so worry not. We've got a ruler. We've got Louis at. I mean really what you're really trying to do is just trying to measure the expense of someone and they put it down on the ground and you actually hear about guys actually doing hand exercises to stretch their hand as wide as possible although when you're grabbing a football you're actually going to measure from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the Pinky here and this is hard because this is a hard rule and you can't really get good accurate measuring you look tired type by just under nine right. Look I'll give you a non center's Oh that's attention and would have actually done something with my. I mean what's interesting when you watch the tape of Joe Borough? There are situations where people come from behind strip him when he's trying to move up in the pocket and run. I mean that's going to happen if you have nine if you have ten inches so I mean it's not a glaring obvious problem as far as him on the football field and that's why I think it's really. It's just going to be something that will hopefully wind up forgetting about certain the biggest thing is and you know this with all of these drills you know as well. Mike you go back to the tape and you're trying to find something after the fact that says okay. Now I'm going to look specifically at these things so you're gonNA look cold weather rain and then ball security and Joe Boroughs as good as any college quarterback you're ever going to see in the pocket in terms of two hands on the ball and protecting the ball. I saw him in two thousand eighteen the last weekend. In September against Ole Miss. You can go back and watch the tape. My suit was soaking wet when I did the open of that game. It was pouring rain driving rain in anyone who says it doesn't rain in Baton Rouge on a Saturday night is lying to you. Because it poured and he completed seventy two percent of his throws with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in that game. So you go back to the tape and you try to look at these things and what the tape tells you is. He's just fine. You know I had a theory here. I have an interesting experience with hand size so I was forced out in two thousand eight. We were we trade for Brett Farve and just as a fan of sport. I can't wait to go out to the first practice and watch Brett farve throw. There's nothing physically imposing about breath and he goes out there and he's throwing Abe I've ever seen and I ask them like what is the value. Where's this philosophy comes from it? He said you know what Mike I have long fingers and I actually couple of football the way a lot of people throw a softball. I could actually be over the top and that's where I get all my philosophy from just watching my practice. It was unbelievable to watch though. I know as Lewis show. There's a tradition of how we measure hands but finger. Length is actually an underrated aspect of playing quarterback so far so far small hands but long fingers and you know what my pinky and all the time strong throwing football pictures of the five. It's easily the least important finger in the hand and I can't remember it ever being a big factor. It's all there in the grip. The pinky to me doesn't matter. It's archaic. How we're measuring the quarterback's hand span now with that. Said there's thirty four quarterbacks in the last fourteen years who have been drafted that have had hands of nine inches and smaller and really only two of them had any sort of Sustained Success Ryan. Tannehill is one of them and Jared. Goff is the other. That's it so there are thirty two out of thirty four. Who have failed. But are we going to say that he's going to the Joe Boroughs? Not GonNa have success because his hands tells me that the reason for their failure wasn't because they were nine inches weight.

"I had a dream last night about the show that STU gods was filling in for Joe Buck on his podcast. Alison called me to tell me what a great jobs to Gotz did. And I realized this dream because Alison would never praise. God would never fill in for Joe Bucks podcast that may or may not even exist and if I did it wouldn't be good back through a lot of factual errors in your dream. What a weird dream? Yeah Stugatz at the height of your fantasies gear. Well maybe it was a nightmare. I don't know it happened even when I was asleep. Thank you get. This is the Dan Le Batard show with two guys on. ESPN radio I'm Anthony soldier voices going out but we're we still got you here. Mike Tannenbaum former. NFL General Manager again. We're filling in for Jan Lebatardshow here on the Dan Le Batard are Josue guts on. ESPN radio earlier. We heard from Ed. Ores Ron head. Coach Avella's you. Who sat down on championship drive with Davis? He talked about the matchup with Clemson the national championship game. Here's now daboh Sweeney on championship. Drive with with Davis Devo and you come off a game like the wind against Ohio state that took such a physical toll little extra time. How do you guys approached recovering? Well a lot OUGHTA sleep on the plane riding back and gave them off Monday and Tuesday. They were completely off the players so a couple days to just rest and recover. You know they've been over here doing some you know Pre Hab type stuff that they always do taking care of their bodies and then And then today the staff We'll get our first chance to get with them. We'll have meetings only So they're coming in later on this afternoon so they really had Monday Tuesday day and today off We'll come in this afternoon. Just have meetings and then we'll get back on the field tomorrow so just bigger saying just give them some time to to rest Unbelievable gain ain't physical game and But we'll we'll be excited to get back Going in and really to see him for the first time this afternoon depollute over two weeks to get ready for Lsu when you've seen them this year. I'm sure whether it's watching games or highlights when you when you turn on the film. What's what what are the things that stand out in this match up between your team and and this This LSU team you're GONNA face well. How many very similar to what we saw last week incredibly Balance a very complete football team. I mean Their quarterback is playing just an unbelievably high level. Incredibly efficient accurate. He's very smart decision. -sition maker Keep them in the right play. All the time they empower him a lot to do that He creates his legs Very good running back back Their offensive line big strong physical They had won a whale award One to six elite wideouts got a great eight tidy in. I mean there's really no weakness there and then aroma defensive side they are massive massive upfront in that D. Align they've got great depth again just big and strong and fast and athletic linebackers and and outstanding in the secondary. They got guys that can that can running in cover and So just a just a very complete football team Just like the team that we saw last week who I thought was outstanding as well. Well W quarterback Trevor Lawrence after that targeting hit. He was on the ground hurt days confused. He said that he went to the sideline. When he was able the gathering himself? He was Kinda pissed off and that kind of woke him up and he changed. Tell us what did you see from your quarterback after that hit. I mean I didn't really see anything different. I thought his approach was the same the whole way I mean he said that you know it just kind of made him mad you know he was bill taking like hey they you know they knocked him out or whatever So I just think more of any if anything just just his resolve and his will to win was just strengthen within that much more than it already was and it was just it was it was a it was a a man who was the heavyweight. Bout A man's a huge game lots of momentum and obviously to get down sixteen. Nothing and I would say most teams would fold But to see our guys Keep their poise and keep battling and and Now we need it was that one spark and down sixteen nothing and then going twenty. Nine seven Ryan I think that says all you need to know about that quarterback That we got in data. It'll you'll be heading back into the building and what you want a national championship as a player. LSU and Clemson coming up on January thirteenth. Appreciate your time and happy New Year you got to look forward to happy new year to everyone out there go tigers are that was. That was Reese Davis Championship drive with Jabots Weena. The head coach of Clemson Michael Keaton. Excuse me and my co host today. Mike Tannenbaum former. NFL General Manager. Anthony Salter on the Dan. Le Batard show was. God's Are Mike we've been doing and football frenzy all season long and I know for prediction standpoint. You're well ahead of me when it comes through correct predictions. I'm going to challenge you today though. There are four College Football Playoff Games. I'm sorry not ballgames. We are going to make make predictions against the spread to wrap things up all right. I'm going to challenge you on. This is this like a new year sort of like fresh slate for you is that is that is that thought process. That's exactly right. I'm hitting the reset button here. Bring it on a trite. I'm going to try to get the best of my Tanenbaum. who is a genius when it comes to football predictions all right Michigan Alabama and the Virgo Citrus Bowl? Alabama is minus a seven. And a half. Who Do you have like Alabama lay the points with Alabama seven and a half? Yeah Alabama's the better team. You Know Bolt Bowl Games are always a hard just even from a scheduling perspective. Like how many times you WANNA go see a game watch somebody play. And then they don't play for whatever reason so you never know like who may be pulled or or what happens. But I like Alabama Michigan and right. There is why I'm GonNa Take Michigan. I think I think the games more for Michigan than it does Alabama. I'll take the seven and a half points and by the way all these. All these lines are from Caesar's Casino in Sports Book. So I got Michigan plus seven and a half you got Alabama seven and a half Minnesota and Auburn Auburn. Auburn is laying seven points similar. Alabama's Line Auburn is favored by seven. I'm going to take Minnesota in this game. I think motivation ovation also factors in here. I think it's a big opportunity for that Minnesota Program to win eleven games as he does a for the first time. I'm what since one thousand nine hundred four is what we've been talking about throughout the course of the day to day. I like Minnesota plus the seven. I think they keep a close against Auburn. Who got to keep things okay? I'll take Auburn so okay. I'll go. SEC SEC big ten big ten heart -Sconsin we're going to big ten. Wisconsin is laying fielder minus three against Oregon got. Oh I gotta go with Oregon. I've been all in on Justin. Herbert I do like Jim Leonard a lot. JIM LOVES THE UP AND COMING. Defensive Coordinator the Wisconsin Badgers one of my former guys. He'll be head coach. He'll be a great head coach when he becomes one That should be a great game. I'm really looking forward to see that. You know Y Wisconsin Johnson's number one in the country in blessing efficiency and just in Herbert's hole in his game is dealing with the blitz. So it's really a great opportunity for Herbert. That should be a great game. I'm really really looking forward to watching that That's a great match up I like Oregon but boy that that just as a fan of the sport that that's a game I'm looking forward to seeing. Yeah that's the Rose Bowl presented by more northwestern mutual by the way Minnesota Auburn is the outback bowl. Our last one allstatesugarbowl Guy Wisconsin. I and I'm not. I'm not just fading U.. I like Wisconsin Defense Against Justin Herber Roseville allstatesugarbowl Baylor in Georgia. Baylor is plus four. And a half against Georgia's Georgia's favorite. Who Do yet? I believe Georgia's seeing some guys here so I gotta go with Baylor I will say this if the team gets full team. I really like Georgia. But I think they're going to be missing. Both of their tackles and I think Baylor Baylor can have more of a full squads. I'll go with them. Yeah same I like Baylor as well. So we'll we'll throw that one out because Georgia. Yeah as you as you just noted Mike..

"All vote phone guests join US via the Shell Pennzoil Performance Line Anthony soldier alongside former. NFL General Manager. Mike Tannenbaum mom filling in for the guys today. Hope you're having an excellent new year's coming off a safe and eventful night has night all right Mike and we just got done hearing cocoa. LSU Talk about the the Clemson matchup when you watch Lsu. And I know you've been a big proponent of tigers all season long big big proponent of Joe Boroughs well when you look at this National Championship match-up does Clemson stand any any shot of beating. LSU Or as Lsu just flat unbeatable fish point. Oh absolutely you know again. That's over civil. I think Trevor Lawrence has never lost a game so an we asked. This question should early to bobby carpenter. So if there's a four point differential amid thirty go you gotta go seventy five yards for a winning touchdown who who would you rather have. It's probably Joe Borrow this year but it's awfully close. We're talking about barring an unforeseen development anthony the to number one picks and backed back. NFL The draft in their prime on prime time. It's it's an incredible stage. I think it's good. Come down. Who can make the last stop Kinda like Turner intercepting the passing Justin Austin fields last week? The clemson safety for the game clinching interception so I think absolutely clemson has a chance. And here's why Travis. At the end I think him and the Andrea Andrea Swift or the clash of the running back class this year. I think they're clearly head of JK Darwin's who I do like but Ed T. and alone can control the game and he could LSU has an improving defense. That's coach Odorata Lou to earlier but if Clemson can run the ball the best way stop Joe. Borough is going back for years in Maryland. The New York giants beat the Buffalo Bills in the super bowl and they had the ball for thirty seven. Thirty eight minutes. That's if we're talking about the national champion Clemson. Tigers figures look for time of possession as a big factor in that you know. I agree first and foremost I agree with you in that Clemson does does have a shot. Do we not what do we do. We now remember what happened last year when everybody was on Alabama and Sabin and book it that revenge revenge factor that Alabama has coming off of the walls to Clemson the year prior and the national championship game in them with a freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence and Clemson got it done and it wasn't particularly particularly close. If we're writing off Clemson or if anybody's writing off Clemson I think that would be a mistake. Bread Venables the defensive coordinator for Clemson. I thought Mike and tell me what you think. I thought that he did an excellent job. As the game. Moron against Ohio state figuring out ways to attack just field. The talented dual author quarterback for Ohio. State he sent more pressure he he knows that he's got a gamble in certain spots and certainly as the athletes to do so joe boroughs it was gonNA make place. We know that he's made plays all season long. They just put up sixty three on Oklahoma but Oklahoma is in the same class. When you talk about about Clemson's defense but the point that you just hit on I thought is excellent when Lsu took on Ole miss earlier this year ole all miss rush for like over two hundred yards against Lsu? Now they couldn't stop Joe Borough and wound up being another victory for the Tigers. Bought not running the ball effectively. Does two things for Clemson one as you noted it keeps jober on. LSU's offense on the sidelines. To if you're in possession of the football Iran in that clock consistently and you can shorten up the game and not provide so many opportunities for Joe Borough and Lsu and Travis each who's coming off an excellent game against. I'll stay in the running game in the passing game. Those interesting Mike. Trevor Lawrence was running the football as much. He was in that game as well with those two guys. I think that clubs and Ken were on the ball. Actively it's just a matter of if L. as you scores in a blink can clemson keep pace ace. That's my only question nobody's been able to keep pace with. LSU To this point you know. I think those are all fair points. But because of the explosive players. That clemson has has in Rawson Higgins. They they'll be able to answer the scores. I presume that Lsu's going. I was at the game last week. the Peach Bowl while they they you know I want you to the game. I watched the warm ups. I'm thinking myself I just don't see Oklahoma. Having the players on the back end and candidly look we could always talked about how would they be as an NFL team and physically upright. You know we're talking about kids going against grown men and and that's why ka-shing can never compete with a pro team. But but what I would say is when you look at Marshall You look at Justice in Jefferson and you look at your marches. There's no NFL team right now. That has three horns that can match up with them none so LSU's going to score in practice score against Oklahoma the score against Clemson they score against Alabama. They're gonNA score. But I do think clemson will be able to score and I think think they're going to be able to run the ball I think. LSU's defense has improved over the course of the year. Chasen's a really good pass rusher in particular they got a couple of really good corners. Derek sting leads can be a first first round pick when he's eligible But I think it's going to be a high scoring game and despite LSU's improved defense. I think Clemson's just two explosive on offense and I could could see this game being in the thirties. That's my Tannenbaum former. NFL General Manager. Here David Josie voices going out but were punching through it here. ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance with insurance for cars homes boats motorcycles RV's and commercial vehicles at one eight hundred progressive and progressive as of Dot Com Mike. Let's talk a little bit too about the NFL draft. Because after Joe Borough takes on Clemson in the national championship game. He's likely to hear his name. Read off number one going to Cincinnati bengals or if the bengals decide to I don't know trade the trade that big. He certainly go number one when you. You've you've evaluated quarterback for a very long time listed with Joe Borough that I'm GonNa ask you another quarterback who situations a lot more convoluted when you look at Jonesboro borough can he make that transition from Lsu to the NFL and grapple with all that the high expectations of potentially being the number one overall pack. Why do There'd be a lot of questions I gotta say. Yes he would be my number one pick however I would have a couple of questions one is when he was at Ohio State. Why didn't he when the job when you talk about Dwayne Haskins J. T. Barrett. You're talking about two good. They're very good college. quarterbacks but not transformation talents and as good as job rose played and we heard from coach John Talk about. Wow this guy has been the great football player he's ever seen well. Assistant happened overnight. So how come. He couldn't win the job at Ohio State and last time I checked urban. Meyer knows what quarterback looks like. So that's question number one and then last year candidate he was good. Anthony wasn't great and again. That's nitpick here but if you're a great player if you're a truly great if you're Andrew Luck if you're John Elway you gotta pop right away so those would be the two questions that I would ask at least and we were talking talking to bobby carpenter height former. NFL Player obviously Knicks. How state we asked him earlier about? Joe Borough the offense in relation into the matchup with Clemson the national championship game but being able to play in Joe. Brady's passing game and and runs similar concepts substitute. What Sean Payton did in New Orleans is doing in New Orleans degrees? I would think that that that transition would be smooth the other quarterback that that I gotta ask you about and of course this this is where the convoluted par comes in is to a tongue of a lower. Let's say that his medicals clear. Let's say that while he might not be ready to play next season for an NFL team. He's going to be healthy enough at some point maybe a year and a half from now to start in the NFL. Your general manager if you have a first round pick where does to a tongue of a low of Alabama go well It's about about three things medical medical medical so we could get the medical cleared. Then no problem but you just concerned because it's an injury where it's it's the hip and it's not an area the by that's well vascular arised and therefore it's a little bit unpredictable. Hopefully he makes a full and complete recovery until we get that back Until we know that our doctors who signed off. It's really proceed with caution with him. That is for general manager.

"mike tannenbaum" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"ESPN radio the ESPN APP and Siriusxm Channel Eighty. I WanNa start off Mike with something that you and I have talked a lot about football frenzy which you can hear five to ten on Sundays. What is going on in Dallas? What would be the reason why Jerry Jones has not made a decision yet on Jason Garrett because Mike I felt as though I know that this was a foregone conclusion weeks ago after the Patriots loss in Foxborough I thought foregone conclusion Jason Garrett would no longer be the head coach so you've been in NFL for an offices you've dealt with owners? Why would Jerry Jones be holding off on this? You know. That's a great question. We've obviously discussed this In detail over the last couple days you know. Clearly if Jerry Jones had any proclivities to WANNA keep deep Jason Garrett they could have gotten the deal. It's very easy deal to do a contract extension with a coach. That's already in the building so we saw Jerry Jones when he wanted Ezekiel Michael. Elliott August Ezekiel Elliott was in Kabo had multiple years left on his contract. That could've franchise him and Jerry still out and signed him so it shows you that in all likelihood there's going to be an extension now. Everyone feels that way. We all think that thing but what what is the delay I don't know. But here's the bigger concern and I don't think they're gonNA lose out on their head coaching candidate. Because I'm sure behind the scenes Stephen Jones who runs the organization day to day. Anthony is as you know in touch with the candidates more poorly their agents. So I don't think necessarily like Ron Rivera was the guy they wanted anyway. However were the if I'm a cowboy fan and here's where I should be very very concerned? The assistant coaches fly off the board. It is the wild wild west. There is no salary cap. And I'm just picking out the name here. Let's say that they wanted to hire head coach axe and head coach. Jack del Rio Will Jack Del. Rio just became part of Ron Rivera staff in Washington so from that standpoint. You're starting to put yourself at a competitive disadvantage. And if I was a Dallas Cowboy Fan that would be my bigger concern talking about Jerry Jones and why he might be holding off on and I don't want to be insensitive here because we're talking about a man's job but why might be holding off on relieving Jason Garrett of his duties and designed for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless Bobby Carpenter. ESPN football lanos was on Golic and Wingo earlier. Said Jerry might be looking for reasons to Cape Jason Garrett. Is there another lever that we can pull. Could we bring someone else on the staff. Is there like a CO head coach. The we can throw in there. Isn't there a mentor. A fellowship program. Is there something we can do. The try to provide you another avenue to keep you on this stuff because you know what I really like you. He tagged him. He hired him before he hired. Wade Phillips Phillips then when when he gave him the job like he was expecting him to be the answer. Answer Jerry look like a genius the guy that provided him the opportunity for like this next hall elephant coach Tomlin Injury in. It hasn't worked out yet and I don't think he's ready to give up on it. Mike I know that Bobby Carpenter again. You heard earlier earlier today. Golic and Wingo and he's going to join us a little bit later on and talk about not only this subject but also some college football because we got a lot of ball games. Of course you've got the big one between Lsu and Clemson. But I think with what Bobby said there. There is some truth there even even if you shine a kind of a little bit I wonder if Jerry Jones is thinking to himself I do WanNa be the guy that was right about Jason Garrett and there's some loyalty here the only other reason I think that he might be holding onto Garrett. Is that at that next candidate. Isn't there the one he wants. Whoever that may be? Maybe it's in the college ranks. Maybe you know it's it's Matt rule or it's not the Lincoln Riley I was GonNa go anywhere you and I've talked about this a lot. But that guy that he wants is an available or is telling him no and then he's circling back and say. Well maybe Jason Gary. We'll be okay for another another year Look I think anything's on the table. Look candidly we're all speculating. I just tell you that it's a very big competitive competitive disadvantage and the assistant coach pool that they're hurting themselves. And you know what else is interesting to me. Anthony is Jerry. Jones has been called a lot of things by a lot of people over. You know whatever the last twenty twenty five years he has arguably you know. Maybe the most forward facing position of the most valuable franchise in all all of American sports clearly won most valuable franchise in all the world. But I think what we're seeing fundamentally at the end of the day here Anthony. He's human and I. Actually you find this to be somewhat admiring while it's maddening from a football standpoint like come on let's get on with it. Let's get on with the search. I think there's something really Romantic attractive active about the fact that like he has real feelings for the sky. And I think that says a lot about jury as a human being and if I was next coach. There's something about it. That's actually admirable. which which is he cares? Deeply about Jason Garrett. I think there's there's a lot of good in that Mike Tannenbaum former. NFL General Manager for the jets worked in the Front Office for the Miami Dolphins uh-huh while the last couple of years joins me Anthony Salter. This is the Dan Le Batard show with Stugatz on.

Daniel Snyder can't figure it out delight to hire of not only Ron Rivera.

Really Smart So I think the continuity for join Haskins is important so Coming out of the box if you're telling me that it's Kevin O'CONNELL coaching Twain Haskins. And It's Jack Del Rio coaching Defense with Rana rare. I think it's a really really good. Start for the Russians. I do too. I mean that's a lot of experience there. I think thad both guys will.

"Night. You have one tonight right as well a game as you can see on e._s._p._n. To close out week number one and it's notre dame against louisville and remember the last time we saw aw the fighting irish they were being blown out by the national champion clemson tigers in the college. Football playoff in book is back. The defense had some losses but you still have some pieces there and i think the expectations clearly are still going to be there for this brian kelly football all team. I mean they're notre dame. There's always going to be expectations. Scott satterfield on the other hand making his debut as the coach of the louisville cardinals and they got a lot of work to do. I mean i mean that goes without saying. I mean louisville coming off of an extremely downward time in this program you know bobby. Pacino couldn't work his magic. The second time around and now it's onto scott got satterfield plate to see if he can build this program in the a._c._c. back to what they war and he had a good run. Remember appalachian state for a lotta years where they were you. You know the dragon slayer if you will getting some high profile wins along the way you know they've built that program with a nice reputation and now the task is going to be there again form at louisville. We'll see if he can do the same thing. They've had some turnover again on the defensive side of the ball. They've got their third defensive coordinator in as many seasons so you always wonder what type of carryover effect. That's that's gonna have for the players there so we're watching tonight of course at eight o'clock eastern on e._s._p._n. The fighting irish and the cardinals as far as what we saw here over over the weekend i mean we can talk about auburn an oregon and the thrilling finish with bone knicks. I mean let's let's be kind and we'll start there before we get into the bad right because there was some bad this weekend and you know where i'm going you people in knoxville. I'll get there in a second but as far as the auburn in the ore game game was on saturday night. You know that had everything that you want an early season out of conference college edged football game to be between a couple of teams that have some expectations look you know what this this season could potentially mean for gus malzahn. You know to have to win in with this team in the s._e._c. doing in the state of alabama. Were you know that there's going to be competition there each and every season and to break in quarterback in bonex chiefs with that touchdown pass to win the football game with less than two minutes ago and not only that to be able to overcome what by all accounts was pretty shaky game for the most part. I mean you go look at the news. Thirteen thirty one he finished thirteenth thirty one but he got better as the game went along and he got better when when the situation warranted it and he made the throws when he absolutely had to now. If you're an auburn fan today clearly you're thankful for oregon allowing you to get back into this football game because look mario cristobal. I think he's a good coach but as a whole he had a rough game the other night the way they manage that game especially in the second half the way they manage the clock timeout usage that sort of thing..

They were disappointed. They were surprised <hes> but then pay what we got two years you can we were set. We believe in frank reich we believe in the offense and there's really nothing else you can do then <hes> he got hurt yeah. Caffeine injuries are tough. We've talked talk about that a lot. 'cause you're not great. Let supply their their rehab is tricky unpredictable and i think for him. He felt like enough was enough. Cleveland browns have certainly been one of the darlings of the off season mike. Are you jumping on that train like everybody else. Do you think that all of this talent is finally going to manifest itself and bring a winner to cleveland for the first time in a very long time. I think they're going to be improved. <hes> mike insurers you. Are i think coaching still marriage. I think mike tomlin and john harbor to invest in our league and i think king-size a chance to be a good coach but <hes> i think they're better but <hes> <hes>. Let's just say let's proceed with caution. I agree with you on that one. <hes> you know it's quite a leap to automatically assume a team collection channel players in an organization which really has not had any winning for a good amount of time is going to be able to all just suddenly snap their fingers and then flip that page i i mean that's gonna take a long long long litany of losing to be able to overcome to just in one year say we've got this thing figured out and oh by the way there are a couple ah teams in that division mike. I'm sure you know quite well. Starting with the pittsburgh steelers who i think people are maybe given short change too and that probably would not be the wisest thing <unk> overlooking that steelers franchise losing robbery with them change replacing the valence misused retakes tapes and throwing around so explosive on offense defensively they trade for bush. I surrender out in michigan. The lead the pittsburgh steeler defense <hes>. I think then in baltimore being a little discounted in that division concerns about the browns offensive line so i think it'll be pretty competitive should be as always mike appreciate a couple of minutes of your time on this labor day. Joy the rest of it and we'll do it again soon. Thanks so much all right great. Thank you for having me all right. There's mike tannenbaum maria c. n. n._f._l.

"The field sunday against the giants and i bring that up because you remember quite well of course back in two thousand ten with durrell rivas in his holdout with the jets he comes into camp very light right before the season starts week two against the patriots. He hurts his hamstring. Are you concerned at all. That may be the same thing would be in the cards for zeke zeke elliott with not having that football training up until now yeah. It's a fair point. I think that's why you could see him. Maybe being you know usually libya but maybe it's as a <hes> pass protector. Maybe it's the ten or fifteen most important plays of the game so it may not be <hes> you know full at you know once you know from day one but you know if they get back. Those are their first two games provisioning game so i'm sure we'll try and get him out there and she as possible it may be a little bit like all split shifts and you look at the schedule to certainly the one that jumps out eight is that week four matchup against the new orleans saints where you would really like to have number twenty one back in the fold by then when the schedule gets a little bit more daunting i mean giants redskins dolphins the first three no disrespect but those teams certainly are not expected to be competing for that big prize at the end of the year. You look another running back here and melvin gordon who is still staying away from the chargers. The team came out over the weekend and said that we're not gonna have any substantial. Central contract talks until the season is over. I guess that now his agent can go out and shop for a new opportunity and a trade but the the tricky part of it for the chargers. Mike i would think is twofold number. One who's going to pony up and give the chargers the compensation they want and then twofold also pay melvin elven gordon a contract that he wants yeah..

"First hour we will keep the conversation going with our e._s._p._n. N._f._l. Analyst mike tannenbaum was nice enough to give us a couple of minutes here on this labor day mike. It's dan grassi here on the stephen smith show. Thanks for joining me. How are you how about yourself very very good. Mike it's always good to catch up with the here and catching up clearly some we all have to do as far as the houston. Texans roster is concerned with the moves that they made here over the last couple of days. Do you like this texans team today versus before these moves were made. Let's say three four days ago. Yeah sure i like what they did. I think they've addressed the needs <hes> very concerned that they didn't sign earn attention to extension just so that you're allowed to do under the rules and if we went back a year ago dan that's exactly what you're talking to a cleal math multiple draft choices but i'm the same day they traded to max they reach an agreement with his agent so throughway reasoning out of texas. You skip that step two more years under contract to tunsil. You're right right so they're gonna wait to play this stuff out now. When you look at the team and just the makeup and the philosophical structure you know defensively. They were considered one of the better units here in the n._f._l. Last couple years with all the stars that they have on that side of the ball now obviously the emergence of deshaun watson. They've got his blindside protector and tunsil. Do you see now that the shift is almost come full circle to where now they're becoming more of an offensive centric football team well yeah at least number players on the other side of the ball tunsil really will solidify offencive line <hes> they and two offense lamin in-draughts their first two picks show so they really should be better right now. Kenny stills an explosive playmaker somebody that had <hes> in miami so they'll be they should be able to be prolific sure the scoring. I think they'll be song. I see them at jacksonville <hes> as the two best teams the a._f._c. south what kind of player are the seattle seahawks getting davy cloudy and it's not as a simplistic question that is you know. Do we know who the real davy uncloudy is. You know all the hype that he came into the n._f._l. With last couple of years have certainly been better than his first couple of seasons. Are they getting that marquee pass rushing threat. Who's going to strike like fear into opposing quarterback on an every down basis. I think they're in good player. I think he's a little underrated against the one dan <hes> as you can be this elite player worthy. I you know obviously not yet but they drafted l. J. collier in the first round seattle and there's the can stay healthy. You know those three guys that's that's that's former trio in terms of all pass rusher so <hes> it's a new store for him and hopefully takes advantage of it when you look at the seattle seahawks look. It's no secret great mike that this organization knows what they're doing. John schneider pete carroll okay. They have a winning pedigree for what they gave up for today. Beyond cloudy you have to applaud the move because it really wasn't all that significant you know in the houston texans on the other end end up selling them for twenty five cents on the dollar but as they continue to stockpile stockpile these players does seattle whether it's not just a j._v. uncloudy drafting l. j. collier signings ziggy aunts and free agency and and all of that was because they traded frank clark in the off season just again another reminder about how well running organization they are and if you take it a bernadette if you move the story forward they may have cleric for year if you signed a big contract with another team and freezing next year then is it really really <hes> they'll get backed up around picketers compensatory draft choice for at the following year so i like it on amateur turn like long-term as all talking with e._s._p._n.

I've said as much publicly league but i think i'm going to be sensitive to tomorrow and people in this regard. We clearly are an emotional people. <hes> we have justification for being emotional considering considering our plight being african american zina united states of america and the history that comes along with it having said all of that is incredibly important to point this out. You know too many of us. Come from our community aren't satisfied with things unless it happened to precisely the way. We believe it should happen everybody. You know they are not everybody but too. Many people think that there's one approach to a resolution on far too many occasions when that's simply not the case there are an abundance of ways to skin a cat and when you think i i applaud listen. I said it before. Eric reid is an incredible friend to colin catholic incredible all of us which we had a friend like that kenny stills. I applaud him. I'm being conscientious observer <hes> and and you know the the the act of this that he is but that doesn't mean everything they do is right right and it's amazing to me. It's one thing to respectfully disagree. It's another thing entirely to speak in such incendiary fashion ashen as they've come across speaking to question jay z and whether or not he communicates with common folks or as kenny stills articulated related offer eric read just to to basically say that jay z was everything but an uncle tom krahn. Who do you really really have to go to that point. That's where it becomes a bit disappointing steve noah so sad about that situation a lot of people. I hear a lot of brothers hit on history when you say tom i gotta find out who tom here. That's right talk. Tom was not too bad. One town was the one who was sticking extra food for slaves during the holidays. Tom's one who's getting a fiddle together to make sure that they can celebrate but what they have done downplay thomas the bad guy when people open their mouth okay tom. Are you doing the store the other time how ignorant you are not just that not just that the other thing is is that you're coming at folks such volatility just because you know they. They didn't even do anything yet. You don't even know what's going to happen. You didn't even take a wait and see approach and you're already in attack mode so those things are incredibly unfortunate <hes> and not only that that you're you're pouring jay z. accusing chelsea of taking a check in the pouring him doing so while you're getting paid from n._f._l.

I don't think it's deniable that that he could end up being an asset to the los angeles lakers and that's something that needs to happen as well. He's considered one of the best cab guys as in a business by some this always somebody associated with a team. That's unheard of unsung long. That's who the lakers need. Rob pelinka is a novice etta g._m. Position magic johnson is a novice as president of basketball operations. Those are not negative connotations fishes connotations.

This year will be the first to tell you that but the jury is still out. The doors are closed. The book is closed on magic johnson and rob pelinka. It's not like things can't be corrected. Lakers have cap space space. They've got draft picks coming up and we're talking about really acquiring somebody in free agency in order to be a title oh contender and maybe less maybe let's maybe rick bouquets right. Maybe kevin durant is done a done deal. Go to the knicks. All i'm saying to us that i'm in no position to definitively say that i've had plenty of people who have told me that but i don't know that because kevin durant hasn't hasn't has an admitted that and the people close to him deny that it's a done deal now they could be lying. I don't know i don't particularly care and if i recall my boy champion detroit if i recall him correct. I think he's been telling me kevin.

"The lakers in the second half of the season have been an unmitigated disaster period and it falls on if you wanna say a falls on genie bus i would say for you to you for this reason and this reason only there rob pelinka is there because obviously they had a relationship before magic. Johnson took over and some believe that genius has everything to do rob lincoln being there. I don't know oh whether that's true or not. I'm only telling you what people say. Here's my issue. I think rob pelinka. There's a lot of jealousy. Out-pizzas hit is a lot of envy out there. You got people out there who want him to do badly. They don't like him. They didn't like him. When he was an agent. They don't like him now that he's in gm's position and they talk to him because they have to because it's proper decorum to some degree but they don't particularly like him but it is fair to say in fairness to him that a lotta a lot of that might have to do a jealousy when you have an iconic figure in the sports world like kobe bryant absolutely positively swearing by rob pelinka and what he means the basketball and how brilliant basketball mind he is. You got to pay attention to that because kobe would know a thing about that. There's very few people on the planet. He trusts us more rapport linka. That's important to point out. It's important to point out that kobe bryant is not the only talent there rob pelinka is represented. There's plenty of guys that may be jealous or may have been in the past jealous or envious of the cash hate at ropley ahead and the job that he did for all we know and that might play a role in him being excoriated by some clearly behind his back but what's undeniable is is that the combination of magic and rob pelinka needs to be elevated. There needs to be somebody in the mix. You got andy ellsberg in miami this pat riley and their exposure but you got a guy like the ellsberg that monetised not cap and brings a lot of ideas to to pat riley and that can't be ignored it truly cannot. I think that is incredibly incredibly important. That's where i'm at with it..

It clearly seems one of those situations situations where it seems unlikely to this particular moment in time. I gotta admit to you. I'd be surprised kevin durant ended up in new york knick because kevin durant obviously. I'm not gonna accuse him of having thin-skinned. 'cause i respect the brother what i'm going to say to him. Who i'm going to say about rather is that the media can be quite annoying and if the media is quite annoying now. What the hell is it going to be like when he comes to the new york knicks.

What did i tell you all about lebron james and that narrative. What did i tell you all about lebron james and narratives and now you got kevin durant dan and others following two. I'm not criticizing them. It's fine. I'm just telling you what it is. You really really did lebron james. Kevin durant both have homes in l._a. Lebron <hes> james kevin durant both have each other cell phone numbers remember when kevin durant said something about lebron being being a teammate of this potentially being toxic and libron ron confessed to our very own rachel nichols that he was somewhat put off an offended by what he said but then they got on the phone and spoke about it so if they got on the phone and spoke about it that means they could get on the phone with each other anytime they wanted to write which is exactly what they can do.

Jaguars' Tom Coughlin may have violated NFL offseason rules with one simple statement
"Tom Coughlin. The Jaguars executive vice president said Thursday that players absent from the beginning of phase one of offseason workouts, quote were close to one hundred percent attendance. And quite frankly, all of our players should be here. I mean, he's still doing this stuff. The old military, man. Tom coughing west, you know, with the with the collective bargaining agreement coming up. Are we gonna do away with farce of voluntary? If you have guys going on record saying, I'd I expect you hear suck only involuntary I agree with that in principle in theory. But the one exception I would make is Jalen Ramsey and Leonard fournette for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They had so many issues last year with commitment with the clubhouse with teamwork with chemistry and Jalen Ramsey. I don't know what he's doing with his career.

Aken I feel like it's not that big of a deal because they can work out with their own personal trainers. And then if they show up out of shape than yeah. That's a problem which which with for not has been right, but yeah. Coughlin's gonna gonna not gonna coffee they're gonna
