"If you are on my staff, your nickname would be stick. Pause. I'm surprisingly jacked. I'm just gonna flex just so you can see. For the podcast audience, Mina is not checked. All right, Tom, this is too much. I envision this as a make a wish scenario and this is way over the top now. I am disturbed by your confidence. He's jealous. In my friend, I did not see it going this way to be honest. I really didn't show me something that you do athletically. And then I'll match it up. Grab the video. This is what we do. Pablo, what we just did right here is what I'm doing now with all this unbelievable technology that's out there. That the very best coaches did 50 years ago intuitively. So here's the pressure. When are you going to throw first pitch, Mina? I don't want you to watch. If I'm being honest, but oh no, of course he's going to, we're going to have a party. We're going to have a watch party. Yeah, all of it. It's June 10th. My beloved Mariners are hosting the Red Sox. Okay, so you're aware I played for the Mariners. Yeah, I was born in Seattle. My dad went to the University of Washington. Oh nice. So there was another thing that we have in common that Pablo unfortunately you and I don't have in common. So what's my homework for you, Paula? Here's your homework, Tom, because at some point I want you to biomechanically evaluate me in the most rigorous way possible, but until then I just need a nickname because you gave me a stick and I'm feeling left out. Okay. Again, showing up for the first time, look at you the way you're built, I think you would either be stumpy. So I'm guess how tell are you Pablo? 5, ten and 5, ten and three quarters of an inch Tom house. I'm so glad you asked. Whether or not you're taller than I am, how much do you want? Oh, I weigh it right now about like one 65. No, one 70 closer, probably. See, I have a 5, 9, two O 5. So I'm the original beer keg. And I can't call you here a kid, but I knew you were a squat about it. I might have to see what you like. What's your favorite sport? Oh, it's basketball. What kind of a free throw shooter are you? I'm terrible. Okay. That's terrible. My mechanics are all my mechanics are a multi part series, Tom. If you could do me a favor and have someone video you give me give me 5 free throws. Yes. I want to see 5 streets. We'll run it through. It's actually we have the technology now with its company that it's a an app that we call mustard. Yes. Where a mom and a dad can film their child with democratized, but the elite paying 30 grand a weekend for and we put it in the hands and mom and dad and we can actually give you a biomechanical workup of your free throw shooting for free. Sold. Sold. Then you and I can make fun of him, okay? Yeah. I can't wait. And then, you know, you can greatest both. Tom house, it's on behalf of stick and squatty potty. Squatty body. Stumpy and also. Yeah, that's probably. Yeah, I guess. Yeah, I'd prefer the other one somehow to stuff the Tom house. Thank you.

"It's killing me. Think about your back foot has to be perpendicular to the target you're throwing at when you initiate the movement to throw with your feet. So tell me what I just said. So in your own work. The back foot has to be pointed at the catcher. Perpendicular, not pointed. You have here's pointed. It's got to be pointed in the other direction. Oh, wow. Yes, you think about how your foot is put together. If the ball is what ours complex is perpendicular to the target, what's the bump on the inside above what's that call? It's your ankle. Put an eyeball in it, and whether you're a quarterback, whether you're a thrower, anything you throw, your ankle eye on your back foot has to be perpendicularly to where you throw on the target. Yes. For the listener, Mina has now lifted her foot to the camera, yes. So from here on out, whenever you throw anything, if you can get the ankle I on your back foot, perpendicular to the target gets thrown at when you wait shift, your whole body will direct itself, hips, shoulders, everything. Without even having to think, you did a really good job with your total body, except when you went to throw when you wait transferred your back foot was aiming toward the on deck circle on the first base side. Can you visualize that? Yeah, absolutely. And all you had to do to make your weight transfer and your whole bottom half your legs and your hips speak perfect is just square up that back foot so the ankle eye is aiming toward home plate. So that takes care of your legs. So what did you learn about your legs? What do you have to do? That I get it. I'm going to actually draw a little eye on my ankle bump thing and that little eye has to be facing home plate instead of facing the index CERCLA as you mentioned. And that's perfect. And if you do that, then your legs are taken care of and hips happen. Please tell me what I just said. If I do that, my legs will be taken care of and my hips will happen. When you landed on your front foot, your hips were already opened up. Which in your mind's eye and your subconscious brain said my shoulders have to follow. So when you went to throw your hips and your shoulders were added toward the on deck circle, your front side glove and arm was almost behind you. And you still made a good throw forward. But I was fighting it. Like it was generally because and I'm not blowing smoke. There's an athlete floating around in that skinny little body you have. That's gonna be my new Twitter bio Tom. And I'm gonna attribute it to you. Really good. And when you throw it and you do this naturally, when you broke your hands, your thumbs went under, which means your elbows went up and you actually squared off and release the ball with your eyes level and your back foot on the ground when the ball left your hand. Now I gave you three things. That's a lot. But it's a compliment. When you broke your hands, okay, your eyes were love you went thumbs under to get Elmo's up. Your eyes were level, and your back foot was on the ground, which normally takes a bunch of repetitions for anybody to learn, and you said you hadn't done it for 20 years. Yeah, no. I was really consciously trying not to throw it like a shot putter. Right. And that's that low elbow score. When you break your hands and your thumbs go up, warn your elbows go. They go down. When you break your hands and your thumbs go under, where you're elbows go. And maybe you did it perfectly when you broke your hands both elbows came up. You got to a perfect 90 90, but then everything kind of spun out because your feet were all screwed up. My feet failed me as they often do. But it only takes one repetition to fix the position. It takes thousands of reps to neural pathway program a movement. So we try to teach position before movement before activity called scale. And the really the only position that I need you to think about is making sure that your ankle is in your foot is perpendicular to your target. And the rest of your delivery should fall in place. Mina is grinning so broadly for the record, Tom, as this is happening for our audience. She is, okay, yeah, keep going. Jealousy. It's this simple. GSF go frigging fast. I'm cleaning it up just so you have to keep your eyes level keep your front side firm and drag your back foot. You already do three of those things. All you have to do is get the bottom half, get your legs. To where all your momentum is going toward a target instead of spinning it out to the left and you're fine. And you can't go wrong with going fast. The faster you go, the easier you throw. What I just need problem. The faster you go, the easier you will throw. Right. It's null and Ryan. Nolan wanted to throw hard easy. And we never could understand what he meant. When he got tired, he said that tired or I get the faster I try to move. Because you throw with your body, your arms along for the ride. If your muscling up, if you're recruiting strength in your arm before the energy gets there, you're really inefficient with your kinematic sequencing. You actually have really good weight transfer and energy translation. But where's your energy gone? It's been an, you know, George first base. Instead of going to our home plate. I was thinking about that, Tom, because my arms are so noodle like I was trying to use my body. Because you're smart, you're intuitively smart. It's back there..

"You know, showing up to school in your underwear. Like that is peak, scary stuff. You didn't make me feel better though with the last part about my throwing being okay. Yeah, but what you just said, what happens to human beings that care too much? And thank too much. Is they lock up? And if you think about sports, it's just basically taking the equivalent of what you've done in your backyard, your whole life, and put yourself in front of 50,000, a 100,000 people. The east Germans have a wonderful phrase. I wish I could give it to you in German, but your body's not dumb if you let it be smart. And we spend our lifetime whatever our professions are out thinking our bodies. It's not necessary. And I do think there's another German word that does mix into the modern setting in which mean is entering, right? Which is shot in Freud, 'cause it does feel like the Internet is kind of rooting for failure here, Tom. And so all of the zen in the world feels more necessary than ever in general. Everybody likes to see a screw up. If you do it, you're supposed to do, nobody talks about it. But there's the deal. You learn more from bombing from screwing up. We call it fail, fast, forward. Now there's a concept for you. The people that you're watching on TV that play sports have failed more than any of their peer group. The guys that are willing to go through the nosebleed and failing and learning from their failures are the ones that play. The ones that never take a chance that always try to just satisfy rather than satisfy they never get to the elite level. And again, I'm not blowing smoke, meaning you're not going to believe how good you really are once we talk you through. All right, all right. I love this. All right, Tom. I mean, let's do it, man. Give us give us usually you have like heat maps and very fancy 3D imaging technology. You did grade Mina off of a video. She took on her cell phone? I didn't take it. So give us the best that you got. Okay, so just so you know whether it's a group of little leaguers or working with a Hall of Famer. We inform instruct and inspire. That's what we're after. So the first piece is our about information. When I told you earlier that you throw your feet, if I was to ask you, what do you think you heard the term ankle I? What would ankle I mean to you? Sounds like a new marvel character. Okay. There you go. See, you're smart enough to do further question. It's killing me. Think about your back foot has to be perpendicular to the target you're throwing at when you initiate the movement to throw with your feet. So tell me what I just said. So in your own work. The back foot has to be pointed at the catcher. Perpendicular, not pointed. You have your pointed. It's got to be the other direction. Oh, wow. Yes, you think about how your foot is put together. If the ball is what ours complex is perpendicular to the target, what's the bump on the inside above what's that call? It's your ankle.

"Out of this. I do like the idea of you being, I don't even know if you've ever seen endgame. At the very least, you've probably are infinity war. You probably have glanced at the Wikipedia page summaries of what those plots are. I like the idea of you being the Doctor Strange. Imagining every possibility. All the worlds that could exist in which things go in particularly horrifying ways. First of all, I'm a cast member, of course, I've seen a game. Shout out Disney. But let me ask you this. You were in fair. Yeah. Synergy. What do you think is the worst possible iteration of a first pitch? Because we've seen a lot of them over the years. Yeah, I mean, I think the worst possible one is the one in which it looks like you have no idea what you're doing. That's actually the second worst genre. The first worst genre is the one where your pitch goes so haywire that you injure a photographer. Oh, I hit someone, so like I Randy Johnson, a bird, but the bird is actually flying somewhere in the upper deck. It could be the possible nightmare scenario. I hadn't even thought of that. Yes, you could be the sequel to the Randy Johnson murders a bird. So I actually think I'd rather throw it hard, but slice it or something. As opposed to just throwing like a pathetically weak pitch. I think that is actually the worst one for me because I do have spaghetti arms and I think that will satisfy some people's preconceived notions of what I'm capable of. You are the Kevin Durant of ESPN. Exclusively in terms of bicep definition. Exactly. I've often said, people say. Well, hold on. I want to rewind because the idea of you getting the call to do this is admittedly, and this is where, yes, I was bargaining, I'll admit. I'm still very jealous. It's awesome. It's an awesome thing to get the call. I was totally surprised. I want to say that. When I got an email from a marketing person with the Mariners ahead of opening day asking me if it's something I'd be interested in doing, I have made no secret of my fandom. There's an egg in Martinez bobblehead on my TV backdrop. I achieve some renowned not the right word. But infamy, I guess? Yeah. I think that's fair. I don't know if you were on the show that day. We were taping around the horn and in between blocks, news broke that Shohei Ohtani was not signing with the Mariners and I lost my I think I blacked out actually for like ten seconds. Otani's going to the angels? No. No. I need a second. Yeah, I was not on the show, but I heard it just like over mountain ranges. As it happened live. But it does this whole thing. So take me inside what you have to do for this because they basically just say show up. Yes. And bring your arm that's a lot stronger than people think. And throw this pitch. But also like you're kind of like a guest of honor, right? Like you gotta do jumbotron things. Yeah, so the other thing I had to do, the only thing I've had to do ahead of this, I guess, other than practice, which no one is making me do. That's just something I'm doing. Yeah, we gotta talk about that, yeah. We can talk about practice. I taped some jumbotron prompts, which are the things that, you know, come up telling the crowd to rally or stand up. It's time to get loud. Everybody on your feet, let's go. Let's do this. Hey, it's rally time. I have to admit, perhaps even more so than throwing a ball 50 plus feet. Enthusiastically encouraging a crack to do something is even more out of my bailiwick. I use it right Bailey book. I don't think the words, it's rally time, have ever come out of my mouth before the moment that I taped that prompt. The laugh at me. Don't laugh at me. What people don't know is that when you used to host this show before you started every episode, you used to tell the guest, it's rally time, and then you sort of go on the podcast. Get loud. Let's go. Seattle. Stand up. That's actually better than the one I gave him. Okay, hold on though, because your relationship to the Mariners, I just want to recap this for people who don't understand. Why do you care about them in a way that would lead them to think this person? This person is the right person for this incredibly pressurized daunting task. Feels like you're negging me. I just want to throw that out there. I'm just acknowledge the underlying tension between behind a lot of these questions. But yeah. So I was born to Mariners fan, born into Mariners fandom. When I was a kid, it was incredibly cool to be a Mariners fan because the coolest basal player that perhaps ever existed can be junior was a national icon for kids everywhere. Regardless of where you live, it was the internationally known. Everybody wore their hat like griffey. Everybody emulated his swing. Runner at first. One down. Deep to right field way back. He has done it again. Goodbye home run. Ken griffey junior said to his teammates get on my back and I will carry you. So it was actually a really, really fun time. And I think maybe misleading because, you know, Mina at the age of 8 thought, I'm in for a whole life of this. Ken griffey junior, Alex Rodriguez, Randy Johnson, ichiro Suzuki, you know. J muter. The bone, you know? But of course, as you know, and I think many people know the marriage have not been to the postseason since 2001, as long as drought, of course, have any major league team in America. And so it's been a long, long, dark road. And yeah, there was a lot of optimism headed into the season, which is still young. Of course, it's June. And they got off to a great start. There's all this young talent coming up, and Julio Rodriguez, who was like the really, really exciting talent coming up, outfielder, has actually been quite good. Hammered. Blast off left field. Julio Rodriguez with a match of a three run bomb and the 21 year old will touch them all for the first time. What's less encouraging is that the Mariners have just had bad luck as of late and you know maybe just maybe my first pitch will turn things around. Yeah, a lot of ball game left. Mina, which is also another good thing you could yell at a sub 500 team from a jumbotron. But who is actually helping you get ready for this? I haven't sent videos of me practicing or discussed what I've been doing with that many people, so it's kind of hard to receive advice. You've been in the lab. The lab with my husband who did play baseball growing up shout out to Nick. And has been very generous or provided a very generous strike zone, rather. You've seen the video. We sent it to our group chat. Didn't get a lot of advice there. Our friend Mike schur is a big baseball fan. I think told me to flip one of my hips or something, which I immediately forgot and ignored. So it's not great Pablo. It's a very private and I don't know if I'm getting better. Yeah. You're going to talk about first pitches that went well. That's right. Or we're surprisingly okay. The only talk about the terrible ones. So yeah, you know who I did watch. I did watch a first pitch from Sue bird. He's around quite a few, but she was strong one for the Mariners. Yep, a friend of the show. Yep. Turn it on because I wanted to see where she was throwing from because I just had to remember to see her throw and.

"When you are ready, it's your pitch. Oh, no. Doctor Fauci over the previous four so months had become one of the most famous people in the world because he was the COVID czar during the height of COVID. And he was given the ball to throw the first pitch and what happened after that Pablo, it defies words. I think we should, frankly, just let Doctor Fauci explain it himself. I had been practicing at a walk down that I thought was 60 feet. And I was really probably 45 feet. And I kind of hurt my arm because I haven't thrown a baseball literally in decades. So as I was getting ready to go out on the mound, my arm was killing me, but I said, hell, I could suck it up and just throw it the way I had been practicing. When I got to the mound, I said, oh my God, Sean Doolittle looked like he was 200 feet away. And instead of just throwing it, lobby get over him, which would have landed right in front of him. I wound up and threw it like a bullet only it just went way off to the left. So it was my bed all the way. I got to say Jeff did not anticipate replaying tape from that specific interview we did with that. Almost two years later, but I rewatched the video now and as much as I respect and treasure that man, I find it very hard to mount an argument against his ranking with you. The thing to understand here, Pablo, is that most first pitches go all right. It's a special guest lobbying something in the general vicinity of home plate. You have a margin of error, you're okay. But sometimes these things go horrifically wrong. And on May 16th, Steve aoki, world famous DJ and producer. I'm sure you danced to his music all the time. Was that Fenway Park to throw out the first pitch ahead of the Red Sox game? It's not his first rodeo. So he asked for some advice from Matt Barnes, the Red Sox reliever who was set to catch the throw. The last two times I tried it. Okay. I never made it to the home plate. Okay. We're going to change that time. So I'm catching your first pitch tonight. Okay, so what should I do just different? Aim higher. Let it eat. Okay. All right. Don't as hard as you can. As far as you can. That sounds like good advice, but I guess he took it too literally because aoki went out to the mound and on court to throw that was above Barnes head and above everything else and almost hit a jet flying over Fenway and it came to rest on the top of the backstop and if we're talking about candidates for the worst pitch in first pitch history, it certainly in the conversation. Yeah, just the ball sadly resting atop some netting is a pretty good indictment of both the advice you received and your execution of said advice. So Jeff, if you were to give advice to, let's say a certain someone, a certain and someone who is being tasked with throwing a first pitch and wants to avoid, let's say, making the power rankings that you have now described for us. What are you telling this hypothetical person? Well, this hypothetical person Pablo is not hypothetical. So I got a text on Wednesday, may 18th. At ten 11 a.m., it said, your morning laugh. An attached to it was a video of a person standing on a dirt field in front of a hill wearing a tank top, shorts and sneakers. Throwing a baseball. It was mean a kind and she was preparing for what's going to be one of the biggest nights of her life. Here's the thing. She didn't ask me for advice. And that showed me some confidence. I think she understands what's at stake here. I think she recognizes that it's not just the times name. But it's all of ESPN's integrity and self respect. That's on the line here. And I don't mean to pile on any more pressure than there is, Mina. No. Of course not. This is hard enough as it is already. But the reality is, if you screw this up, you're never, ever, ever going to hear the end of it from all of us. Oh, I completely agree. Jeff, and so after the break, we really need to hear from her.

Not just at any Major League Baseball game, but at your favorite major league teams, baseball game. And then I thought about it for like one more second and I was like, oh, I'm actually very glad that I do not have to do this at all. Why are you though? Feels like you're bargaining. Well, let me be up front with you. I find this whole thing kind of terrifying. Yeah. And I am curious how you are feeling now that you are going to do this thing in front of untold thousands of people at a legit major league ballpark. Many people have tried to convince me that this is a win win scenario for me. Either I throw the pitch and people are pleasantly surprised by the velocity of it or approximates a strike, I don't know how far out I'm going to be actually. A shocking spin rate, yeah, for me to cops is when possible headline in this universe. Or I screw up terribly, it goes viral, this is not my, I want to be clear. This is not my take. This is what other people have expressed to me. And that works in my favor too because I go viral, which I don't want to go viral. I don't want to be 50 cent. I don't want to be Steve. I don't want any of that. I just want to throw a competent pitch. But what they're suggesting to you, the people who have been in your ear already, people who are not me for the record. What they are suggesting to you is that this is a monetizable experience if it actually goes as bad as a normal person might fear it. Well, I mean, no one's actually telling me to deliberately screw it up. There's no deliberately sell NFTs in the comments section of a video of you, face planting while throwing a first pitch. Even the worst case scenario that you've imagined in your mind and I have imagined several, I mean, there is only so many directions a bad pitch could go, but I have thought of them all. And I think it's more my friends saying, even if that happens, a good thing could come.

"When you are ready, it's your pitch. Oh, no. Doctor Fauci over the previous four so months had become one of the most famous people in the world because he was the COVID czar during the height of COVID. And he was given the ball to throw the first pitch and what happened after that Pablo, it defies words. I think we should, frankly, just let Doctor Fauci explain it himself. I had been practicing at a walk down that I thought was 60 feet. And I was really probably 45 feet. And I kind of hurt my arm because I haven't thrown a baseball literally in decades. So as I was getting ready to go out on the mound, my arm was killing me, but I said, hell, I could suck it up and just throw it the way I had been practicing. When I got to the mound, I said, oh my God, Sean Doolittle looked like he was 200 feet away. And instead of just throwing it, lobby get over him, which would have landed right in front of him. I wound up and threw it like a bullet only it just went way off to the left. So it was my bed all the way. I got to say Jeff did not anticipate replaying tape from that specific interview we did with that. Almost two years later, but I rewatched the video now and as much as I respect and treasure that man, I find it very hard to mount an argument against his ranking with you. The thing to understand here, Pablo, is that most first pitches go all right. It's a special guest lobbying something in the general vicinity of home plate. You have a margin of error, you're okay. But sometimes these things go horrifically wrong. And on May 16th, Steve aoki, world famous DJ and producer. I'm sure you danced to his music all the time. Was that Fenway Park to throw out the first pitch ahead of the Red Sox game? It's not his first rodeo. So he asked for some advice from Matt Barnes, the Red Sox reliever who was set to catch the throw. The last two times I tried it. Okay. I never made it to the home plate. Okay. We're going to change that time. So I'm catching your first pitch tonight. Okay, so what should I do just different? Aim higher. Let it eat. Okay. All right. Don't as hard as you can. As far as you can. That sounds like good advice, but I guess he took it too literally because aoki went out to the mound and on court to throw that was above Barnes head and above everything else and almost hit a jet flying over Fenway and it came to rest on the top of the backstop and if we're talking about candidates for the worst pitch in first pitch history, it certainly in the conversation. Yeah, just the ball sadly resting atop some netting is a pretty good indictment of both the advice you received and your execution of said advice. So Jeff, if you were to give advice to, let's say a certain someone, a certain and someone who is being tasked with throwing a first pitch and wants to avoid, let's say, making the power rankings that you have now described for us. What are you telling this hypothetical person? Well, this hypothetical person Pablo is not hypothetical. So I got a text on Wednesday, may 18th. At ten 11 a.m., it said, your morning laugh..

"The governor of Ohio, who would go on to be president William McKinley. Actually didn't toss the ball from the mound to home plate. He threw it from the stands onto the diamond in 1892. 18 years later, William Howard Taft is the first sitting president to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at a Major League Baseball game. He was invited there by Clark Griffith, the owner of the Washington senators, who was hoping to permanently fix the presidential seal of approval on baseball as the national pastime once and for all. And ever since then, presidents have thrown out first pitches every sitting president over the last century except for the last two Donald Trump and Joe Biden have thrown out a first pitch at a Major League Baseball game during their terms. It wasn't until 1988 though that Ronald Reagan was the first president to deliver the first pitch from the field itself. Please welcome the president of the United States throwing out the ceremonial first place. What a moment this is in the history of Wrigley Field. How much what is best? I am inside. You know, I gotta say, somewhere, the ghost of William Howard Taft is furious that he's not known as the first pitch president, as opposed to the president who got stuck in a bathtub. So who is atop your rankings here, Jeff? Because we could go through the whole history of YouTube and find plausible candidates. To mock and to laugh at, but I do think that your scouting eye here is necessary. All right, so I'm gonna go my top 5 in reverse order, if I may. And we're gonna start with the tie for 5th place, the socks, both the white socks and the Red Sox have had first pitches that were thrown so askew that they hit a photographer with the White Sox, the photographer was like 25 feet away and to the left and it got yanked. And with the Red Sox, it was coming in kind of hot, went over the catcher's head and just gut shot at the photographer. It's the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park in Boston. The wind up, the pitch. Yikes. That hurts just watching him. Not a pleasant thing to see. We're gonna go celebrities for numbers for three and two. Carly Rae jepsen. Yeah. Call me maybe. You certainly don't remember that song. And if you do, I'm sorry. So vividly know that song. She gripped the ball with 5 fingers, and listen, the whole key, you're taught picking up a baseball, you hold it with your index finger, your middle finger, and your thumb. She threw it. I would approximate about ten feet. She gives it a great effort here, but you're gonna have to go back to 2009. The official belt holder for the worst ever first pitch of a ball game was Baba buoy. But that one right there is gonna give it a run. I don't know what it was. I just know Pablo, it was bad. Follow me maybe. You might argue. We have the New York mets to thank for numbers three and two. Three. Gary Della bate, better known as blah blah from the Howard Stern show. I don't know what to say. That hasn't been said about it already. On the Howard Stern show for the record, in which he was roasted crucified all of those synonyms. Yeah. Do you know right away that that was the case? Why do you realize this is going hard? So I'm standing on the side, and I'm just getting more and more nervous, more nervous. I start to get the dry heaves. So I'm doing it on the side and the guy that's with me from the mets is looking at me like I'm out of my mind. Afterward he got interviewed by Kevin burkhardt. One of our listeners was a sports psychologist. So I talked to him for 40 minutes in the car. Obviously it didn't help. Yeah, all that counseling. It didn't really work. So we'll see if we can take a look at the beauty of this first pitch. What are you thinking right now? Wow. I was really hoping that that would not end up on television. For the rest of us, Pablo, thankfully, it did. For a long time, I really, truly believed that 50 cents first pitch at the mets game was going to be the holder of the title of worse first pitch. I am shocked to see 50 cent come up before the gold medal position. Yeah. He was a left handed thrower. He stepped to the right, and so usually when a guy steps in the bucket like that, you're expecting the pitch to follow the lead foot. 50 cent somehow has mastered physics because he stepped to the right and through to the left. And the left doesn't even begin to tell you just how bad this thing was. Well, that is 50 cents. And his first pitch was not great. Just a bit outside. Think he opened up a little early. Can that fresh shoulder? It's good. He never had a choice between playing for the mets or being a rapper. It almost flew off this television screen. Like that's how bad it was. It was embarrassing. Magic stick does not apply seemingly to the other parts of the baseball dynamic. But okay, hold on. Where are we going for the worst first pitch that Jeff passon has ever seen? Now, this may admittedly be recency bias. This may also admittedly be something where I'm more compelled to say it because I was there and bore witness to the atrocity. But it was July 23rd, 2020. Major League Baseball for a long time looked as if it was not going to have a season because the arguments between the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association about how and when the season was going to start, how much they were going to be paid. Looked like it was threatening to cancel the season. But finally, rob Manfred just implements a 60 game season and at the time, the most important person in the country seemingly was doctor Fauci. Doctor Fauci,.

"Their experiences, attempting to do the thing that actual baseball players do to start a game. Yeah. And let me tell you, there have been some really, really bad ones. The pitcher's mound is the loneliest place. In the entire world of sports, anyone who has ever been to a ballpark knows this. You're being judged by a jury of tens of thousands of maniacs. All of them holding cell phones, all of them literally looking down at you. Waiting for you to fail. For a major league pitcher, that pressure is what the money is for. For a civilian, a normie, say, an NFL analyst, like Mina chimes, it can make you wonder why you ever agreed to the honor of throwing a first pitch in the first place. But one week from today, that is exactly what's happening. Yes, you are hearing you here first. Our friend Mina will be throwing the first pitch for her beloved Seattle Mariners on Friday, June 10th. So today, we summon not just Jeff passen, but also the greatest throwing coach on the planet, the legendary Tom house. Who's gonna try and help Mina avoid a life sentence? In the hall of memes. I'm Pablo Torre. It is Friday, June 3rd. This is ESPN daily. So Jeff, you had just mentioned the really bad first pitches. And I actually want to understand this better. Like what goes into a truly awful one? How do you break the worst of the worst down? Here's the thing. There is no limitation as to who can throw a bad first pitch. Let's start with the athletes. And we're talking world class athletes from almost every sport here who have absolutely botched a first pitch. Conor McGregor..

"I can do Pink Floyd brain damaged. Oh. Would you like to hear a couple of notes? I heard some Emerson Lake and Palmer coming in today. That was cool. I haven't heard that in a while. Yeah. Here we go. It's in the hall. The lunatics are in my heart. We did that for a couple. We did that for a couple of reasons. Number one, to save us money. So if you go over, how long do you have to go on a song that we had to pay a fee to ASCAP? And number two, we did it to save the audience. Their lunch. We are coming up with me and a crime who will elevate the IQ of the show significantly when we talk to her and talk to the NFL Draft right after this. You are listening to the Paul fine bomb show podcast. And we welcome you back. We're about a week and two days away from the draft something that our next guests have been talking about for a considerably long time in a time showing us from ESPN. You see every day on NFL live and you see her here and we're delighted to have you meet and it's been a long time. How are you? I read about you all the time. I keep up with you through various means. You seem to be doing quite well. I'm good. It has been a long time. This is the time of year when our paths converge, right? And it's one of my favorite times of the year for that reason. Yeah, you're not someone that just runs onto the set and rattles off the top two or three headlines. Every time I have ever spoken to you about the draft, I feel like a shrinking violet because I'm just in awe of how much you know and how much you put into this. How do you get ready for an event like next week? I suppose by doing it every day, but what is your, what is your methodology? Sleeping less, Paul is where it starts. No, I mean, with the NFL season and I think I speak for my colleagues as well. We don't get the chance to watch that much college football, so as soon as the Super Bowl ends, the cramming begins, even before the combine trying to prepare as much as possible, watch as many games as possible in a pretty short amount of time and it's an interesting way to kind of evaluate and consume the tape. Yeah, I mean, you can go a lot of different directions because I find in talking to experts like you, the questions are pretty prosaic, is it who's number one, the quarterbacks, but I know that's not exactly how you do it. Do you look at specific team needs? Do you look at positions, how do you go about consuming all this? Because it could be an endless proposition. Yeah. You were absolutely right. We look at team needs. Positional value when you look at a player like Jordan Davis, for example, or Kyle Hamilton, I think that becomes an important question and trying to predict where they'll be drafted. And then another thing we look at that's not discusses often is timelines for the teams. You know, are these teams trying to compete now? Do they want to guy, whether it's a quarterback or an edge rusher who can step in and contribute immediately and make an impact or are they on a longer timeline? Are they comfortable taking a more developmental prospect? That's all really important when trying to evaluate the fit of the prospects with the teams. The obsessive position in the NFL is always quarterback. So let me begin there because a lot of big moves have already been made leading up to the draft, but short of something happening between now and the draft now. It looks like there could be some things happening. What do you see from the prospects coming out of college this year? I see a lot of question marks. This quarterback draft class is much maligned perhaps unfairly, odds are one of the top 5 will become an ethyl starter at least based on the typical outcomes for these classes, but I agree with a lot of my colleagues that if these quarterbacks were in last year's draft, they would certainly not be going in the top half of the first round. And I go back to what I said about floor and ceiling. I think that becomes really important when you're comparing a quarterback like Malik Willis, who I think has the highest ceiling, but there's a lot of variants there. There's need for development to a quarterback like Desmond Ritter, who's a player I've really enjoyed watching over the last month because he's such a good processor. He's so good at setting protections, which is probably the reason why he's excellent against the blitz, but perhaps doesn't have the ceiling of a Malik. It seems like the interesting team is a Carolina Panthers because no matter what they do, they don't ever seem to have a quarterback. Even though they drafted a guy a couple of years, they signed a guy to get last year who was, I think, the number two or three pick from a couple of years ago, do you see one of these going there? There's a lot of talk about Baker Mayfield. That's a name from the past. Is somebody going to dive in early on one of these guys? Well, there's a lot of noise around Carolina drafting a quarterback at 6. You know, this is a team that as you mentioned, it has been basically desperate to find a quarterback or last few years. The trade for Sam darnold alluded to doesn't look great in retrospect, although new offensive coordinator Ben mcadoo did say today he's the starter, which probably throws some mock drafts into a little bit of disarray. I think that desperation is never a good stance from which to approach a draft, especially a draft like this. And I look at this Carolina team and I think they're improved, but they still don't have a start above average left tackle. And part of me thinks that if they were to take, I don't know what Kenny Pickett, who there's a lot of rumors around there or even a Malik Willis looking at this offensive line and the team as a whole, I'm not sure they'd be put in a position to succeed and part of me thinks they'd be better off bolstering the offensive line and waiting until next year, which as you know, Paul is a much better class for quarterbacks. Yeah, it is. I do not want to go there, although we were talking about the Alabama spring game the other day, and then with Bryce young, there may be competition with one of his teammates for the number one position, will Anderson, but we'll save that from a year from now. But it will be a little more exciting. I agree. You mentioned, you mentioned Davis from Georgia and that whole unit has been so awesome and elite. And I know it's the topic you guys have talked about on NFL live. Just as you go through some of those players, sometimes it's a little bit hard to differentiate, but we're so good together. 100%. And by the way, just watching Georgia, whenever I try to watch an individual player, I'm constantly distracted by another player doing something incredible. And at first I'll say this, thank God they want it all because if they did, we'd be watching them and have some serious questions for the coach and quarterback because this is basically an all star team. On the defensive front. But it does to your point, making it a little bit harder to evaluate them, not just because they obviously benefited from playing with each other, which is important, but also because their roles were really unique in that defense because of the surplus of talent. You know, a player like Trayvon walker, for example, who some people are now talking about as a top three pick, which seems a little bit rich to me, but his production was lower, as you know, and part of part because how he was used, lined up so much that the three tech or the 5, not asked to just go far outside to a wide 9 position and rush the pasture, pass her pardon me. Rush the quarterback pin his ears back like thibodeau or hutchison and you have to consider that when you're evaluating or a Jordan Davis who had a limited snap count, which I think when teams look at taking him in the first half of the first round, that raises questions..

"A Tuesday, a lot to do today, some really good guests that we will get to them momentarily as well as your phone calls at 8 5 5 two four two 7 two 8 5. Let's hit some headlines here and tell you what you've been missing since we last saw you. How college football transfer portal has changing spring practice. We'll talk to the author of that. It's changing everything. Opinions coming from all walks of the college football world, but what about spring practice, which is ending in most places or has already ended. AR-15, the main man is a Florida plots a new course, and he was a big name last year in the off season. We didn't see enough of him because of injury, but Billy Napier wants to make him the centerpiece of the Gators. News from Vanderbilt, how about this? A new basketball operation center, some new sports being announced, Vanderbilt, anchored down. Okay, we've got anchor anywhere you want. We have a lot to do today, and we will talk to a number of guests, me and a chimes joining us shortly, one of the NFL experts, as we are now just 9 days away from the draft sportico, Daniel libit, he's always got some chuck full of information and David Howe, we mentioned him a minute ago. He did the take on NIL, and the transfer portal. Before we get going with live calls, let's hear a dead caller where one that deadened the show late in the program yesterday, Jay call was one of the final callers of Monday night. They talk about how long he's been since Miami wanted to championship 20 years, 21 years. They talk about how long it took to win another championship. But the Bama fans, what they fail to realize and what they continue to leave out all of these little arguments is when Alabama went from 1980 to 2009 and only had one championship. So that's about 30 years. All teams go and spurts and some teams are so unfortunate not to win a championship at all. So George is to keep celebrating and celebrate until September because they're the national champions. And the Bama fans might as well just shut up and deal with it. Shut up and deal with it. Sounds like a poster somewhere. Mac is up next in Baltimore Mac. It starts us off. Hello Mac. Hey, Paul, thanks so much for having me on and thanks for letting me follow up on that call. You know, I'm all for letting the Georgia fan celebrate this off season and getting their last talks in because I don't know. Last season, it felt like a magical season for them. Pieces were getting put together. That's invented. The folklore hero put the season together that he needed. They lost to bam in the game, but got revenge. It doesn't seem like it's something they're going to repeat. You know, they work so hard to beat Saban for years. They call him Satan. Down south, that's not something that we use lately. And then all of a sudden they beat him once and they're celebrating celebrate because this ain't going to happen again soon, Georgia fans. This isn't a changing of the guards. Stephen hasn't gone anywhere. Bam was still going to whoop their ass in the east is just going to catch up to them. How interesting Mack, thank you for the call. Catherine in Florida, Catherine, go right ahead, good afternoon. Hi, Paul. I just wanted to thank you for the hour long session you had with the archbishop merino last Friday. Oh, thank you so much. That was such an uplifting. Hour and just calming to be what we're faced with now as far as what's going on in the world. And I just thought that he gave us hope. So it was great. I love the story of how he became friends with you. That was rather cool. And then sort of gave me a better view of Jim when he called in a lot of I thought the gym from Tuscaloosa, archbishop merino conversation was one of the most interesting we've ever had. It was a very difficult question if you have followed the Catholic Church over the many, many years because it's a church that has evolved as a lot of churches. And it took someone with great expertise, which the archbishop has. And someone who understood the simplicity of the question, which in many people, in many religions, it's very simple. But also the complexity of the meaning and it was just a phenomenal exchange. I'm so glad you heard it. Well, I just felt so much better with that being wholly weak and a lot of us were raised in a face where it was rather stringent. And I felt like if you didn't follow the rules that you really weren't going to have much of a hope for when the time came, but thank you, Paula, it really was very, very moving and I appreciated. Thank you very much. Yeah, it's something we don't do very often. Obviously, it's a sports show. It's not the mother Angelica or the Joe osteen hour, but it is, I mean, we did it on good Friday. And the final hour of the week. And I always learn so much from it. I know some people study the Bible and study theology and study religions and have a greater understanding of it than us lay people, but it was just fascinating. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Brian is in Tennessee. Hello, Brian. You are on the air. People. Good afternoon. I was just wondering, do you think by any chance Tennessee will win the SEC for a miracle? I know we were just going through talking about good Friday and religion, but no, I don't see that happening. I don't see any miracles coming. I find it miraculous somebody would ask that question legitimately, but that's okay. That's just me. Dave is in Tennessee. Hello, Dave. May, that is. If your name is Dave, then go right ahead. Okay, well, I'm from Missouri. Well, hold on. We don't want to confuse Missouri in Tennessee. Dave from New York. I used to be drive by Dave on the radio and I just was hoping you wouldn't get me mixed up with him. Well, I did, Dave. So go ahead and wherever you are. Wherever you are from the floor is yours. Okay. This is to all the young callers, even like the last one. If they have a good work attitude, they can beat whatever they want to be. They can be like my dad would be a salesman and be successful. They can be like me. I didn't go to college, but I got me a trade. And also, I'm able to make what trade did you have? I was an electrician before I retired. I don't know why I thought you were going to be a welder, but go ahead. Yeah, I sound like a welder. Yes, you do. I can also imitate singer's songs.

That's how you lean into ray. It looks. I don't know how it happened. That should leaning lanes into it with a six pack in those. I mean generally attract right true. That would not be as good if he was overweight. Can we can we get back to good words about to tell us what color days here neither did. I punch you. I don't wanna die my hair like my okay perfect hair. I win a message. That here are good words about to any of them. Just say something something good about. I've been saying about two for a while now. And i'm actually hoping coming on this show. You guys could broker some peace between me and dolphins notice that. There's some tension happening. They're so mad at me all the time and i'll tell you. The origin of this was last year one segment on nfl live. I said the dolphins offensive line is not good and that's my concern about putting too and instead of his patrick who gets the ball out super-quick in who cares if he gets for steamrolled is ryan fitzpatrick to future of the franchise. Donald watched the dolphins. What oh yeah. The small market dolphins were number market. Me that doesn't that feel you've arrived at a place. You're such a big celebrity. You are serious. You're one of the best. Maybe the best football expert we have right now where you can say something edifices often entire van days that our great feeling for you got. I love that actually. I'm doing a love your advice on this. Because you've given me so much. Great advice over the years including only listened to the compliments never reba criticisms all-time their advice on. I'm gonna be on. I take on for an hour every week. What is that our. And i don't i don't think breaking news but i don't i i can do it but it's i take puts you in a position where you say something. Provocative nature of the show is struggle with the blowback of saying provocative things to and. You're you're saying. Oh wow. that's that means you've arrived when you're saying things and people are mad at you which is maybe the most thing ever. But i don't feel that way now but i think when you're doing nfl analysis. You're just you're you're telling people how it is you see it at so your opinion matters so much at this point. Because you're such an expert that you will you said something. Pretty benign an entire as right. I think that's a great feeling like all you're doing is doing your job and if it pisses people off that means you arrive. That's fine. no. You should embrace that. So i think what's happening here too is mean is asking if she can have a weekly meeting on mondays secretly to come up with really hot takes for. I take stephen me and it. Can we do this. We do this to run them by you. And you can adder signature spice. I mean at the time which was defensive. Line bad too young quarterback not getting the ball out. What would be the space the spice that you would sprinkle of the worst. You've ever seen historically bad. I don't think there's any coming back from the dolphin. Pick with austin jackson over for him but you have to question the attentions of even putting back there. It's dangerous for him. They have dan lead guitar playing left guard for firing coaches. Put people on hot seat. I gotta put people hot seats doesn't you don't put someone hotseat after we've won the i i don't i don't wanna be the bearer bad news. You're not going to be. I take every week. Thrust football telling billy that this is a maker break season for bill check. I mean that's that's say that let alone five hundred okay. Can i just say that. Take from stews mouths. If i was to put it in my mouth that would be like the hair rejection out. Your hair would give it. Gravitas.

"And i just didn't have a lot of confidence on third and seven with him and for me is the test and stu gods. We've been rooting against tom. Brady for twenty years. We know on thirty seven. It doesn't matter and that's the test for me with two. He just wasn't there last year in my opinion. And so he's got a major leap to make. I think we all need to pause to and see what happens this season. I think we can forget that. Two of last year pandemic. he's a rookie quarterback. There's really no training camp. He's not really going through the playbook he's got a guy in front of him and ryan fitzpatrick like i think with a full training camp under his belt. He's played a couple of preseason games. He is the quarterback of the miami dolphins this year. There is no question about it. Like let's see this guy was. He was the next andrew lock right and so he was the biggest quarterback prospect coming out of college in a long time and then he had the injury and let's see if he has the ability to overcome that injury. And let's see if he has the ability to live up to the expectations. I don't think we've seen enough nor do we know enough to form any sort of opinion on what type of quarterback to is. Get a bit but there are signs now for rookie quarterbacks that you kind of know when there are at least the first time we see quarterbacks right this is unfair but like patrick mahomes just in herber. They looked the part fairly quickly. And the hope was. Is that when to jumped in. If you're kind of pinning your hopes and dreams on this guy being your guy that you would do it from the off. And he didn't really in my opinion. So i complete understand what you're saying is recovering from a hip injury that you know a lot of people say at some point is gonna need hip replacement surgery. A lot of people thought that was going to keep him out for the entirety of last season. The rehab was remarkable the fact that he was on the field remarkable. But the fact that you didn't have the acumen to know the offense is concerning even if it is a ryan fitzpatrick tailored offense with chan gailey. But the fact they have the arguments in the offense and the fact that he didn't create much in the way of explosion it. It's a concern for me but look good in. Preseason doesn't mean anything but i'm kind of affording to obviously the opportunity to get a lot better from year one to year to at least you have the guts to tell everyone he didn't know the offense. I yeah we go through the playbook. He didn't that's that's in some weird way. That is some form of leadership up chris. If we've formed opinions on josh allen after his first season and many people did and that opinion. Josh allen is not very good right not gonna live up to the expectations. We would have been wrong. In fact many of us were wrong. Dam was wrong. And you were wrong. And mike ryan was wrong and now jockey allen. You could've you could've done that after year to stugotz after a year to you. I mean josh allen and near to which fifty nine percent completion three thousand yards twenty touch. He was a running quarterback in year. Two and then last year becomes an mvp candidate like you. Can you can absolutely you know. Make that point that it takes a couple of years and we are impatient with young quarterbacks. I just wanted to see a quickly. I wanted to jump off my screen. Didn't you always want to see it quickly. But i'd be interested in where chris cody is at with this like i can give you countless exempt like peyton manning. Look at that first year. Paid manning's first year. It was dreadful. I mean he threw thirty interceptions along time ago. Guys like that doesn't really happen as much anymore. I know but not every quarterback just comes in and just good right or it doesn't work that never every quarterback not in two thousand twenty two. I get what you're saying. They're putting the action earlier in their careers. They normally were and you want to see it right away. But i didn't listen. What is often duel was terrible last year. It wasn't great but it also was terrible manager. It just wasn't what you saw at alabama. It was like he turned into a different correct. Aca at alabama. You saw down the field and it was like oh my god. This is an nfl back even physically physically and didn't look the same like the nfl. Uniform look slight he just looked small last year it was all dink and dunk it. Just it was like this is to dolphin offense like i thought we were going to turn into a different offense with just looked like some of the same stuff so like i don't know man. I know that it's a bad answer for. Podcast is just be like the jury's still out like i don't know about i still think it can be a pro bowler and he. I still think he might just be average. So i don't know it's that's my answer. I don't know chris. Why are we aspiring pro bowl as the pinnacle of quarterbacks right like i want my quarterback to be winning playoff games. I want my quarterback be going e playoffs in january. I don't care about people. Make the proble. Because people are winning super bowls. Yeah right like tom. Brady's and the super bowl all of a sudden andy dalton's in proper like give me a break on parole. Tony walk before you can run okay. That's fine. I get that but lands but pro bowl. Connotes a standard of play right. Which is one of the three best quarterbacks conference not anymore tony's right so many people they get invited to the pro bowl and they pass up on the invitation to the problem. But you don't want to be an injury or a super bowl replacement you wanna get vote if you get voted to the pro bowl initially like. That's a standard i mean. What are we doing here. let's do. I'm pretty sure most of the time. Pobal quarterback make the playoffs or or pro quarterback for five thousand yards and thirty five touchdowns semantics argument here. I said i just want to. It'd be good okay. Tony all you all you wanted to is to basically lead you this season to the point where you think that by virtue of having to a you are a playoff contender and i don't think that's the case right now. I think the. I think the dolphins defense and the way that they create turnovers the pressure they create with their scheme the quality of their corners. The defense is the reason. They came close to making the playoffs last year. And so if two becomes a guy where by virtue of his presence you think you can make the playoffs like i think if the dolphins head a bad to mediocre defense they'd be a six or seven when team on the evidence of last season but on the strength of their defense. They got they got close to the playoffs. If to takes a leap to a guy where by virtue of him being good you can make the playoffs. That's what you're looking for. And that's pro bowl quality in my. I feel like everybody. Most dolphin fans are excited about jalen waddell as the rookie. They're most excited to watch. But the one. I'm sneaky most excited to watch his joe van holland the safety out of oregon if he turns out to be a stud and a lot of people think because they got him in the second round and a lot of people said he was projected to go higher that dude like with the two corners that they have if they get a stud. I mean that's the guy and he's wearing number eight because now. Db's can wear single digit numbers. I don't know why. But i love seeing four net wearing number seven. You know out of here get outta here. There is a linebacker linebacker last night. There was leaping with the number seven. I'm like this is not hartson's output wasn't supposed to say this isn't the xfl. No i said this is the nfl. This is how it's supposed to work like like. I'm going to adjust to it but it was weird. I was like why is there a number seven catching a ball right now and it was like winter for net. You would see the number on the front or back of jersey unkind to know who's making this play guy leaps into the air with the number seven..

"No an me. Tom brady tom. Brady's stop it right now have did we. Did we like it when you the eight months in between the seasons. That can be the time in which tom brady goes from super bowl champion. Too old at age forty four so every time he comes improves it in week. One and say all right. Well another season of this crisply. Stop a minute forty left or was it a minute fourteen but how much time. Brady's got this like i knew it. Right we all knew it. We'd like this like they. Won't they lost at this point. Yeah it's like. Oh he's and that's why i think was the winner because we all knew it. Everyone's like brady does this. He's gonna do it all right now. We had a lot of cowboys and bucks chat on the pod that released this morning. Which was our post game. Show from last night on our youtube channel. We are going to be doing post game content quite a bit during this. Nfl and college football season usually on sundays following the four o'clock red zone window whenever that last game goes following whenever the touchdown montage starts rolling queued up by scott. Hanson will sign on on our youtube channel. Youtube lebatardshow friends subscribed but we want to do some more friday football content and really since this is the local hour we should focus on the dolphins. The dolphins enter week. One away at the new england patriots. Great for o'clock slate as a matter of fact way too. Good of four o'clock sleep three really good games going on at the same time. He got chiefs. Brown's you've got the same hosts backers. Do good for me. The four o'clock window here is like a time game. Like browns and the steelers Excuse me brown the chiefs and then arizona and the chargers are playing like that for me. Is the four o'clock window but really good for clocks late. The dolphins are a part of it away in new england and it really is difficult to kind of calibrate your expectations for this dolphin season. Because they go ten and six. Last year they get hammered on the final day in buffalo. Kind of take the air out of the balloon of a really good season. There's doubts about his recovery shawn watson rumors of the course of the off season. The added jalen waddle to try and bolster that receiving core. But chris where you add in terms of ahead of the season. I agree with you. I think i saw that there eleven in the espn ranking so teams. Like people are giving the dolphins respect. But they're not really getting respect. I feel like the biggest question. Marks are quarterback and offensive line. And if you that's just to important positions have question marks set so that is why are a little unsure of the dolphins like you. Look at their skills guys. You'll get their defense. And i mean not skill guys running back. Those are just the plug in running backs you know stugatz could be the running back for the next far and just feel like i've running back anymore. You don't really need. The dolphins are just gonna do it with that. A med guy and gaskin. And it's kind of like miles gasket. Like i i get what you're saying. Running back is kind of interchangeable unless you have one of those elite running backs but from what i've seen from gaskin i kinda like them. You can get out of the backfield. He rips off big runs. I think is a pretty good running back and to that point. I just think they're above average everywhere except quarterback and offensive line. So it's like until we have those answers if those two positions are you know do well. This season and this is a playoff team. I so chris you think they're above average receiver. Because that would be one that i would doubt as well they brought in waddell and but that's a wildcard. He's a rookie. He has ended. i'm. I'm just assuming he's going to be good. But yes. that is a question marks there there. They don't have any pro bowlers deep. That they don't really have very many bowl prospects on the entirety of that offense other than i guess you'd say sickie but like kelsey waller in the afc like they're not going to be pro bowlers. He's not going to be a pro bowler. So i mean really. The question about to authority and alassio was. Is this dolphins offense putting him in enough position to succeed and that includes the wide receivers and a lot of that was health-based. They were missing guys all throughout last season and even throughout this preseason as well and every report that we've seen every performance he put it in preseason was that he was decent but do the dolphins have enough around him. Tony the interesting point is chan. Gailey tailored the offense last year. Four ryan fitzpatrick obviously being his body throughout eons of years That they've been playing together so for me. It's like this is the first time that they're gonna actually taylor. The offense run to a strength instead of just trying to plug him into a square peg in and around home. Be like all right. Do what ryan fitzpatrick and do. And obviously he couldn't do that. An interesting note that i saw was the dolphins had the league lowest touchdowns from outside of the red zone. Which tells me the offense is. Just not explosive. I think they had five touchdowns outside of the red zone. So when you look at jalen water when you look at wolf fuller those guys that were brought in to run. Go routes and expand the field. And if you can't hit them. I think that's where the issue is gonna lie. They need to have an explosive offense to compete with. Josh allen compete with the patriots even to compete with zach wilson and the jets. Do i think. Chris cody is saying and i agree with them. Is you don't know any of their wide receivers great yet devante parker. We're still waiting for him to be great waddell. We hope that he's great. If he is great. The dolphins are going to be really good. And then it's just a bunch of guys who they're going to occasionally have great games and make plays guys like will four right guys. Like guys like preston. Wilson got preston williams. Guys like albert wilson. So you know what they say about a team. Chris that has six wide receivers. You don't have one. Yeah exactly right. I do think. I think i could be wrong about this whole i think. I do think the dolphins are thought. I think people think this receiving core is semi deep. I don't think it's a lead they do. But there's like six guys that you can put out there and that's not every team has that but i think one of the things you saw. Fitzpatrick is really good at utilizing those guys. He made preston williams like the beginning of his career was made by. Ryan fitzpatrick ryan fitzpatrick. Maximize those guys more than any quarterback has including ryan tannehill which is not to say that. I just didn't think it was gonna work for him in miami. But he's become really good quarterback in tennessee fitzpatrick maximizes receiving core and to a really didn't and that would be my concern. Heading into this season is where the connection formed. How does to become an explosive player. Because i think we kind of know that he's good at throwing out routes he's good at managing short intermediate range but can he go down the field and really create big plays because a to a did not do that last year..

"I don't think anyone had the bucks or the or the cowboys. I'm i'm so excited for your army selection. I'm going to. I'm going to set that game to notifications that will get every score of that army western kentucky game. I don't know i. I love the fact that there is that wrinkle and you've got to follow a random game on a saturday so do i. Armies a seven point favorite. But i will tell you. I am already under protest. I sent billy attacks because the co scored billy runs this. And we're doing it on the fly. The coastguard was not given to me as an option Very insulting to the. This is treatment. Tech's do they play that. Because i don't know coastguard not an army navy and the airforce. That's all. I think you might want to check into the coast guard. I believe they have a team. And you know they're the little part of the military that never never gets any sort of credit for at them. The midshipmen laugh at the coast guard. People do anything. What you did really was just sitting there on a boat. Your data's coastguard. Coastguard prolong a couple of years. I don't know you gotta do this. I don't know. I don't know all the details the details. Are you sure. He wasn't a lifeguard. A manner haven pool. That's right. i'm sorry. I can't i gotta tell ya i think we. I think we need fire off. A gods was right sound. The coastguard doesn't have a football team. Beat the university of new england. Week one sixteen and nothing. They're away at curry college this weekend. Like deep division three. So you get with the knowledge. You have to take the coastguard over curry college. I'm just saying it wasn't presented as an option so billy. Just tuck it away. Just to piss off dan just talking away. I'm telling you now that it's under protest gate knowing if army wins. Were good though the coastguard of the bears by the way any sense that that's not a good mass that's bad that's bad. Nickname a coastguard bears. I mean a recall. Come on tony. What do you think i am. I'm just a man. It should be the boats. Maybe i don't know the boats nikki coastguard boats. Yes jets boats that to to cowboys plus nine and a half. Wow you got an extra point. I waited. Did it like literally like eight. Twenty got shot up to nine and a half. Everyone was pound. That was so easy. Though like that was that was way too. High of never sway should never bet week one because the thing is while the bucks are gonna roll over the cowboys. Because dak the won't be the same. The offense will look the same and then the cowboys offense was awesome last night. You don't we'll know we don't know what's going to happen now. You have to bet week one talking entire year. Get tees up everything as you did rather lose five hundred bucks on the weekend. Not bet on the poll. Please whenever we get legalized gambling and hopefully Draftkings will come to our state. But i think the seminal operation will begin on october fifteenth for opening weekends of seasons. I'm gonna be a live guy because if you watch the first two series of the cowboys last night you get a clue that dak is gonna look okay. I felt so good about my plus nine bet when i just saw their offense i was like you know what we're gonna be. Okay right right like you. Congrats you for having that intuition to like no to do that. A lot of people were backing the bucks. Because they're all twenty two starters back and they were going to be just fine and they were. But i think it's going to be hard to make the cowboys bigger than a seven point. Underdog at any point in the season because even in garbage time. They're going to get late. Scores you guys are kind of badmouthing. Cd-rom last night. I tuned in for a moment and he had one drop blaming i was. I was home by midnight. He had the series but he also had ten catches like like ten catches for over one hundred yards and a good game. See down fifty seven time strip to watch the games chris. You have to watch the games. Because i didn't. I didn't think cd land was that good last night. Seven catches greater hundred yards. Good fantasy day. i haven't been a league. I was pleased with that. But i thought michael gallup was better all their tight ends or better thought amari cooper was better like he was actually kind of i if i were a cowboys. Fan would not want the ball thrown in his direction last night. And hopefully that'll change over the course of the year. But that was my feeling watching. It led to an interception which tact through an missile to the middle of field between like three defenders. Hit him in the hands on all sudden somebody else comes out with when that happened. Your thing yourself what a bad throw and then you see the replay and it's a lease scott. It's the most perfect throw it could've been. The skycam was so friendly to dak last night. The number of those he may. That wasn't an angle to do that. How did you do that. He's the winner last night. Right under percents..

Mina Kimes Explains Why SheIs More Excited for This Weekend Than the Super Bowl

"Meena. Hello pablo hello is an nfl analyst for espn and the host of the meantime show featuring lenny so i need to know where you are on the football excitement alerts scale right now because i for a true tape grinder like yourself conference championship. Sunday is in some ways. Maybe even better than the super bowl if the football excitement scale as you call. It was one through ten conference championships. Sunday's about fifteen for me. There's know maybe about whether or not it's more exciting than the super bowl. Pablo it absolutely is. This is my favorite sunday of the year and in part because by the time we get to the super bowl we've talked about same matchups over and over and it's usually like. How many times can we say what you guys rush brady with four. You know before and of course always been in the super bowl the last decade or so. That's a phrase. I've said a lot inventive. You say that. I was going to say you're the person i i would really make that a me. I mean it's true but it's also more fun when you get to talk about other things and this particular set of games. It's really the best possible combination of teams in my opinion. There's a reason why the lions in vegas are very close because it actually looks like a pretty well matched pair of games. I wanna start with buccaneers packers. Meena because this was not a close game when these two teams played back. In october roggio touchdown tampa bay fire the cannons the bucks and thirty seven rogers was abysmal. In that game through zero touchdowns he threw two. picks completed. Completed doesn't half passes in tampa bay when they played each other. The first time and tampa bay destroyed perhaps not coincidentally green bay. Thirty eight to ten. So how did that blowout happened. Well this is. It was such a strange game. Pablo because aaron rodgers has had this incredible season which. I'm sure we'll talk about this. Is the one real blemish on his staff third drops better pass picked off the other side. By two thousand fifteen touchdown touchdown booker. He stunk i. There's no really nice way to put it. Now he stunk in part because the offensive line in green bay which has been spectacular. One of the best football year got beat up. Front rodgers was sacked six times pressured twenty one times. I mean no most of the time this series look cool as a cucumber back there but this was not the case and as mentioned had these very surprising interceptions coming from him. I think he finished the game with a passer rating of like thirty five. Okay so really. It was all about the buccaneers. Pass rush beating green bay upfront and aaron rodgers being uncomfortable as a result and that was also reflected in the running game. aaron jones had just ten carries. He averaged like one point. Five yards per rush again. Very dissimilar from the rest of the season. But you saw what could or should i. If in the eyes of tampa bay be the formula for beating green bay which is if you can stop the running game and keep the packers from executing their play action passing attack which flows from that and get them into third down and get pressure on rogers and obvious passing situations. That's your best chance of beating now. All those things i just said barry. Few teams in the nfl been able to do that but tampa was able to do that the last time. These two teams that so many things obviously have changed since then as you alluded to. That was back in week. Six when that game happened. So in what you've seen since then who's been better this year. Aaron rodgers tom brady. Aaron rodgers is undeniably. Been the better quarterback this year and he is my pick by the way for. Mvp it's between him. And patrick mahomes. It's close but rodgers is that an unreal season. I mean just statistically he's been first and qbr brady was tenth. He ranks third in yards per temporary. He was eleventh forty eight touchdowns brady at forty. He only through five pigs brady threw twelve. You get the idea. So while tom brady is the most complex quarterback of all time i believe. Aaron rodgers is the most talented. Patrick mahomes is kind of them. A run for that. And when these two goats meat i don't know where goat's meat in a field a meadow anyway to meet makes me sort of hungary. Honestly that phrase oud took it there. I guess goats will be hurting in green bay this weekend but the goat whose homefield it is home meadow. It is has been the better one this weekend. That's metaphor really. Just got out of control.

If in the eyes of tampa bay be the formula for beating green bay which is if you can stop the running game and keep the packers from executing their play action passing attack which flows from that and get them into third down and get pressure on rogers and obvious passing situations. That's your best chance of beating now. All those things i just said barry. Few teams in the nfl been able to do that but tampa was able to do that the last time. These two teams that so many things obviously have changed since then as you alluded to. That was back in week. Six when that game happened. So in what you've seen since then who's been better this year. Aaron rodgers tom brady. Aaron rodgers is undeniably. Been the better quarterback this year and he is my pick by the way for. Mvp it's between him. And patrick mahomes. It's close but rodgers is that an unreal season. I mean just statistically he's been first and qbr brady was tenth. He ranks third in yards per temporary. He was eleventh forty eight touchdowns brady at forty. He only through five pigs brady threw twelve. You get the idea. So while tom brady is the most complex quarterback of all time i believe. Aaron rodgers is the most talented. Patrick mahomes is kind of them. A run for that. And when these two goats meat i don't know where goat's meat in a field a meadow anyway to meet makes me sort of hungary. Honestly that phrase oud took it there. I guess goats will be hurting in green bay this weekend but the goat whose homefield it is home meadow. It is has been the better one this weekend. That's metaphor really. Just got out of control.

NFL rumors: Players that test positive for coronavirus will be out (at least) 3 weeks

"Today there was a report that the NFL and NFL PA agreed that there will be kind of separate I are list. Four players who get the krona virus? It'll be three weeks. They will be fully paid, but that is. That is one small detail and the bigger news the bigger. Global Picture is that we are technically only two days away as we tape this from a couple of teams including the Texans, rookies are supposed to show up for training camp. The NFL owners have a big call on Friday in which I expect, there will be news about certainly those rookies, not showing up and you know very possibly training camp getting pushed back, but I think. The the biggest takeaway is here. There's they're pretty far away feels like an even coming to terms with how this will look at the same time that you know five six seven NFL. Teams are in some of the worst places that you could possibly be. In the entire country.

Does Trump Want to Fight to Win 2020 Election?

"Trump the president yeah. There, there's a theory going around that. It's becoming unwinnable for him. And he's GonNa know it and he's going to. Basically do the judge smells like my arm I? Think it's broken. GET HIS ASS out. Do something and then he could do thing afterwards like I would have won, but you know I. had that health thing to that. Do you believe in theory? Well. It's funny like before. That theory became a thing I. had that theory because I was like? If he starts looking at the polls and it's like he's GonNa go down and he's going to go down hard. He may come up with some fake health thing and say he's got heart problem or Some bullshit thing and say I can't do it. I would love to serve you my beloved barricade. I can't do it because he can see the writing on the wall and his whole thing like his whole shtick is a winner winning win win win, and I'm like he's gotta be looking at his post-presidency lives such as it is, and his business such as it is, and if he loses like you know, he loses thirty seven states or something. It's like a you know landslide in. He gets killed. How does he come back from that and say like I'm? I'm a winner. I'm a winner. Come to my come to my business. Come to my hotel. Come to my restaurant. You know that's going to be a big ego blast for him now we're talking about this on my birthday. Zoom and house was like well, but he's just going to say it's rigged, so if he loses and goes down. Hard is going to be like well. It was the mail in ballots, and it was all rigged, and it was the fake news, and whatever but part of me Kinda thought he would do this thing where it's like. Again you know the judge snails arm I think it's broken. I can't run, and then he could always say tweet out. Oh, I could have one. If only my health. Let me I would have beat. Joe Biden Sleep. Joe Biden Yada Yada. So I I. Don't know I mean I i. don't know what his course of action is here now I I've seen some speculation now where people think he doesn't WanNa win like based on his behavior like when he tweets out the other day about the bubble wallace thing. Wallace News thing and he you know, which was a non-story at that point in our, you know millisecond of a news cycle now that had passed by, and he felt the need to tweet that for some reason the other day. Ad Like look like he's you know to bring that up and confederate flags and everything and you're like why. Why would he do this? Why would you do this or election? Campaign like this is going to be? Be Your focus with limited amount of time between now and November third, so people are like. Maybe he doesn't. WanNa win. Maybe he's like president. Thing is hard. This is not for me. It was easy when the economy was good, and we were at peace. SORTA speak, and I could just go to rallies and everybody loved me, but now that it's hard like I I don't WanNa. Do this anymore I wanted to start a TV company and Bitch about CNN I. I don't know what his motivation does at this point anymore. If two semi ever did.

Mina Kimes Reporting on eSports

"Done a lot of long form sports journalism which I've read you know Aaron Rodgers Luca Donncha h And then you did these amazing stories about Korean e sports and Korean bad flipping the first eastport story. I wrote for ESPN. The magazine was at believe in two thousand fifteen and it was about a nineteen year old Korean kid named faker. That's his Gamertag. thrilling Who was the Best League of LEGENDS PLAYER IN THE WORLD? Then I WANNA say a couple of years later. I wrote another sports story about a girl named Gay Gurry in Korea who played overwatch plays overwatch. Who was so good. People thought she was treating the final story. Hope final but I also went to Korea And spent some time there to write about Korean baseball in particular to try to understand why Korean baseball players have such glorious and prolific backflips. Y Y Y Korean stories. When did you start doing them? Well they were total boondoggles. Because I got to go to Korea three times and see my family members on. Espn excellent stories. We're bringing them actually so it is a One of them. Yes so the first eastport story I did was in two thousand fifteen we as a company had not been covering sports before then And they by they I mean the editors Kinda came to me and they said well. We would like to do a feature about this. We're doing an issue. Can you tell us who to write about? Whatever you know. It's your choice. So that wasn't my idea to write about any sports so I spent like a week or so just re which I had the luxury to do as a features writer and I know is very luxurious to actually just kind of learned about the space and figure out what would work and video games or an at all. I didn't play a lot. You have to be like such an authority in so many different spaces within sports to add e- sports to that expertise driven it is but it's different because as a features writer it's very different from being an analyst like you're actually don't have to be an expert you just have to do the research right like in the process of doing that story. Nobody would expect me to have theories about Strategy Games Raji or you know. Be opinionated about that. They expect me to talk to people who are smart and trust them and synthesize that information anyways. I there were few American English articles about gaming couple features. Really hasn't been a lot and Every time I would read these articles they'd be about like a North American team whether it was legal legends. Which is the game ended up writing about? And then there'd always be a line in the story where the Koreans would just show up and kick their ass so I went back to ESPN. And I was like I think I should write about Koreans and then from there. I found out this one kid in particular was the best so yeah I kind of just my approach was to just write about it like we would write about a young Lebron or any other prodigy. I suppose in sports. Ns gamers name is gig ARY This is fake story before. Yeah so I learned all about the various tensions because the future's all about finding tensions and and that's what drives the story a good story but all the tensions associated with Gaming and Korea Crean Culture. I mean I was very interested. Not only okay. Who is this kid? Why so good but why are Koreans in particular so good at this? You know. You're not born with gaming gene? So I I think the socio economic and cultural reasons to me were as fascinating as anything else. So that that's how I ended up in Korea. The first time second time was about Giger US another player in that one. The detention and the piece was very obvious because she was a woman and had been through a very kind of interesting. I love that story. I thank you thank

Mina Kimes' Eclectic Career

"We want to start out by talking about your career which is really interesting to me. You've made some big changes moving from investigative business journalism too long form sports writing and fighting to hosting podcasting and commentating and these are all really. Hartfield to break into. Could you tell us about these transitions? And you know was was sports journalism something. You're always headed towards. None of these jobs were ones that I was doors or ones that I ever aspired to do. You know I kind of fell into all them So now that I've alienated. Everyone right from the trump wants to do these things Yeah no I don. I was going to be like you guys like arts writer or more cultural criticisms kind of interesting to me out of college and then I fell into business. Journalism Durin Internship for magazine called Fortune. Small Business got job at Fortune magazine out of college. Writing about finance and investing moved to doing features than doing investigative features moved to Bloomberg News whereas they're investigative team and I. I've always loved sports but I never aspired to be in sports as a career. Never ASPIRE TO BE ON TELEVISION. Never aspired to do commentary. Espn reached out to me. I'll just didn't really seem like an option for me. Just didn't seem like something that somebody like me would even do quite frankly But but along those lines I don't think business journalism seemed like an option to me. Either I mean when I was in college is just didn't occur to me so. Espn Kinda made the Kimball. The idea for me. They hired me in two thousand fourteen as a features writer. After reading your piece about Your Dad yes. So I wrote a personal essay about football and editor their name. Meghan Ren- greenwell riche down. So you you seem. You seemed like football tweet about it a lot a lot of dumb stuff. She didn't say that. But that's accurate depiction of my twitter and So I was kind of like extensively a serious financial journalist at the time but Football and sports more. Broadly was my passion. So I I was worth twenty nine or something I suppose. Yeah decided to make the leap which was pretty terrifying. What did you grow up wanting to be like as a kid Painter Oh yeah and I still pay not well not a good painter but I do like watercolor sometimes of football players really. Yeah so do you draw them to then or yeah. I do a lot of things I just get I I know insane and then I sometimes I just get a gift. Like a little watercolor set or something. And I'll just use it up and then buy another one. That's what football players do. You have a series of Philip rivers just because I like you so emotive super splitting looking and then I did them all and I said why. Don't want these. So I just auctioned off for Homeless Charity here that works with homelessness that were considered roads a great compassion direction and I was shocked that somebody wanted them and result out of money so I did it again this year. Oh my gosh you do this regularly. Wow that's cool. How much money did you make if you don't well this year? I did so. I did a Korean while. I am obsessed with the kicker young white coup. Oh yeah after the night of three onside kicks legendary night in. Nfl history. And I did a few others like marshawn lynch disguise I liked and I think I sold five of them. Maybe something five or six but I raised thirty five hundred dollars. Wow Wow you definitely interesting. Like if you're selling a five hundred dollars like let's add painter to the bile thank you.

"The clip of Mina kimes interview with myles. Garrett Cleveland Browns Defensive Lineman. He reiterates the racial slur claim against Mason Rudolph. Here so he says that during that melee back in November that Mason. Rudolph used a racial slur and here is a portion of that interview with me crimes and Myles Garrett I mean come off the edge. Ten letters less than fifteen seconds. I remember that I didn't WanNa be on the field but now since I was already out there and they were throwing the ball sales going to play so he started the Baugh. He's he's wanting to throw. I'm going to hit him in the strike zone. I'm not trying to do anything illegal. I go to take him down. He says some worry that we're going down. What did he say to you? I mean he called me the n Word Kami stupid and we're I don't like I don't say the N. word whether it's a PR to me personally. Just shouldn't be Sir all right. Got One other clip here with meantime asking Myles Garrett and myles Garrett said that he's not using this as a crutch for why he acted the way he did against Mason Rudolph. That didn't want to use it as justification for my actions because there's nothing to justify like there's there's nothing I can say or do just what I did on that day. I'm not saying there's to justify than I didn't do anything wrong and I know what I know what happened. I know what I heard.

Eli Manning and the Hall of Fame: The case for and against

"Ally manning thing announced his retirement on Wednesday retiring after sixteen seasons. He's thirty nine years old The giants quarterback who was of course supplanted by Danny dimes. This year but was a rock for for many years is now heads into retirement and it makes sense Meena In fact as a New York I all my friends are giant spans. I was on a tax change just the day before this news broke. And we're talking about that. Allies GonNA retire probably soon. Because when you look at the landscape with all these older quarterbacks on the market and what allies allies been doing the last couple of years. It never made sense that he was going to find a place to start games or perhaps he didn't want to be a backup. So this all made sense but still it. It is the end of an era in New York. I would love nothing more to come in here and defy I. I think what you all know. I'm about to say about Eli Manning I should not be wh- down calls US football cools right. Yeah I would love to say you know what guys you can't tell the story of football without Eli Manning which by the way why why is he the only person who gets that benefit say that about anyone else other than Eli. There's a lot of guys you can't tell the story of football without Aaron Hernandez put them in the hall of fame or if you want to look at pat super we were both. I mean they don't want any of them without dont`a hightower that's a holiday thing. Greg is compared. Eli Manning to know first. Ten Sahal Hyphen reductionist could be just one thing. You consider about a candidate quite well the few want ally in the holly. It's either two cases. One one is longevity. which is I think? A lot of people throw out. Because there's just too many guys who would get in by that and then the other is the two super bowls in the story thing. That's just not about how I would define it. It just becomes an argument. About how do you define the hall of fame. I think in my case against him has always been and yeah. I've been making this case for probably eight or nine years. So this is how long he's been average He's just been averaged entire career. Average in completion percentage yards per attempt. He's actually really way. Below average in the law of the interception categories passer rating these average. He's just for the time he entered the league to the time he left the league. He was an average quarterback over or that span. I I still don't like that being the conversation though when he retired. I we've had this argument so many times that I think we're just tired of it like we've said everything that there is to say about. Eli Manning in the Hall of Famer Eli Manning in general that. I actually was annoyed almost yesterday that that's the conversation when a really great player who was a big part of the league in you know no matter whether he was a top five quarterback no he never was maybe in two two thousand eleven. I went through it once. I think I had him at a top five quarterback one year top ten quarterback only one other your. Yeah that's not the hall of fame but like immediately the second he retires. The entire conversation is like the start of the public hall of fame. Talk which is GONNA be. Never any people are so confident about what's going to happen you don't I know what's going to happen becoming. We were like you know he will be in. It's like you don't know that I think the manning name like this is not a new thought but just that we've talked about royalty and stuff that he's sort of this. NFL Family fixture that. The people voting for this. I think they're gonNa Push Eli Manning right in not maybe. CBS voters down. The conversation depends on who he's against. Though you're really does. Conversation will be never ending for five years then going in. I'm sorry I don't listen you. Everybody discounts counting stats and cory will get too caught up or only point at the two rings and the two superbowl. MVP's but I just think there's something that'd be so if he didn't win those super bowls he's he's not he's not going to have him. I get that but there's something to be said and it's always been feel overlooked both on this podcast aspect in general. Because Eli can be a target. I feel like on twitter that the giants drafted him or the chargers. Technically but the giants Brought him into the team in two thousand four. They put him in the lineup in around October that year and then they never had to think about the quarterback position again for the next ten eleven eleven twelve years and I know things didn't end very well but they should have been thinking about it so when you're when you're talking about right ten years okay I'm GonNa say ten years when you think about other teams about your Brown's Mark My jets so many other teams in the league that go through constant search a churn looking for a guy and you end up with a stop. Stopgap and a rookie. You stinks and then a stop Gat and then another rookie. And maybe you hit on something. Like the SEAHAWKS got Russell Wilson. They don't have to think about anything. Russell Wilson's a better player than the but he eli for ten twelve years. They put him in there. He did his job. He was not spectacular but he was steady. You never had to worry about him getting hurt because he never did. He's the most durable the player ever. You'd never had to worry about him saying stupid something stupid to the media. He always handled that very well. You never had to worry about him. Getting into like a behind the scenes drama with with a coach and exploding and him being at odds and using the media to get a point across and all that stuff he was a Walter Payton Man of the year guy he was a total title. Good Dude and in those playoff runs. Then you factor that in for me. He rose up in historic way. And then just beat. Anybody didn't beat the Jacksonville. We'll jaguars didn't beat a Pittsburgh. steelers heat the Patriots and he'd be Bill Bell Check and he'd beat Tom Brady. And if if that's not something that should be given added points knowing who the Patriots are and what they represent in this era of NFL football. I'm sorry I disagreed to just kind of view that uh-huh yeah beat the Patriots. No he beat the greatest team of all time the greatest quarterback in the greatest head coach. I think that means a lot. His team did right playing. Okay Ah in that Super Bowl. I don't think he would say he had the best game. Even the play he's known for is crazy play. That could never be replicated. The two twenty eleven run is what I remember most fondly. Va Man. I think people kind of forget that won the last game of the regular season that they played it was against the cowboys and then the three league games in the NFC playoffs and that Super Bowl he had a collection of some of the most improbable. Low percentage awesome throws goes for five weeks. Stretch that you'll ever see Joe flacco kind of had a somewhat similar run any add little moments like that the year after they won the Super Bowl two thousand eight. He was really good throughout the year but they didn't win the Super Bowl because if eli manning they want it because of their defense I mean they wanna because of Justin Tuck and he learned of it. It's equally reductive to me to say. They won because of the argue he was part of it took to get into the. I mean the kind of connected back to the HIGHTOWER. No one's out here making a case for hightower you kind of do you. You like to throw this one in. I is the single most important outside of Brady and Gronk like the Patriots. Don't have this run of Super Bulls without dont`a hightower. I think I don't think belongs in the hall of fame but you could every all of the cases were making for. Eli You could just as easily make for like twenty other other random playwright quarterback a case you've made for you. I think is the case. Why he's a great memorable? NFL figure. It's just that's different than in. Our weather also talked about about it forever his position he was not a top ten quarterback. I would say for every year but two of his career. There's no one in the hall of fame you can say they've also said forever. You're in West. You've quoted Vince Lombardi on this that the quarterback it just the most important for a position or a position where the spotlight as and that comes with way. More pressure To it then dot high tower where his position is. I just think what you I was able to do in that spot in those two years is something you can't take away from. I and and say oh he was carried to titles. Because I don't I just don't see it that way. I think you've you stated the case very well. I think it falls shy of the hall of fame. I think if you're a jets fan like Dan or you're the browns fan and you've seen nothing but Ship wrecked chaos at the quarterback position. That the the idea that you would draft someone who would play as Eli did before a PR stunt got him benched you know. Couple of years twelve years of sixteen starts and by the way we are stunned. Got Him benched. He got himself well. That's fine but I'm saying but also the disrespect I just giants fan and you draft draft Philip rivers and he. He did what he did. But you get Eli Manning out of it and you know. He's going to win two super bowls in essentially a total ironman at the position. He's a hall of fame to a lot of giants fans I get. I don't think he belongs to the meeting. Early either reading a story just reading up on allies career. I completely forgot the whole two thousand seventeen.
