"He's a quarterback people have heard of so it won't be a total mutiny that it might have been if they'd been you know. Hey david blaustein starting quarterback this year. There'd been a riot. Jared goff's at least big enough name that you know you're not going to have a complete a disaster on your hands but like he doesn't have a chance to win because nobody's throat you're right. Hopkinson is the only guy that he's going to have any degree of comfort level with my so know they're gonna try and blood. The offense and the defensive line men next offseason probably going to be in a good position to grab you know spencer rattler. Whoever it is at the top of the drafts and get the quarterback in the receivers right. I got you I guess a before. I let your head out of here. You've been very very generous. Which time If you guys are late to the pod just make sure you follow a samay under. Pf underscore sam. Is that correct. That's got okay One thing i wanted to actually though from a fantasy perspective because we got into that a little bit with stafford. Are there some guys that you feel. As though are super underrated. In some guys that are super overrated Approaching fantasy football this year for somebody watching for the team. Yeah it's tough i. I think that emmanuel sanders going to buffalo is really interesting. I think using the manual. Say fan i am. I like manuals anders. But also think look see. Somebody has got to pick up the role that john brown left in that offense right which is like the deep threat. I think people are paying it. To gabriel davis who who look good last year but when they swapped john brown. And gabriel davis wasn't quite the same. Like gabriel davis doesn't have exactly the same skill set John brown but emmanuel sanders can win at all levels the defense and he might not be great at any of them but i think he's going to work his way into that system. I'm be like an important part of that offense. That offense is gonna air the ball at like they pass more than anybody else in neutral situations. I and tan that kind of thing. So yeah like he is going to be. I think an interesting sleeper particularly. You know certain weeks. I think you're gonna find emmanuel sanders going off and you know it'll catch people by surprise male. I guess we're me. He bert me so many times and fantasy football like i have like okay other than that. I just wanted to say thank you very much for coming on today like again.

"One who's been the guy that's fixed matthew stafford six games of jim bob cooter offensive coordinator and it's like stafford's he's the lights gone on and then it starts happening again because stafford is just always inconsistent and he never you know maintains that level for any extended period of time So i think he might have a career year with the rams. But i don't know if he will get significantly better even within this offense but don't you think when people talk about staffer released for me. I guess my point of view is like i'm always you said key. Were they talking about the talent level right. But i'm talking about arm talent. If you're talking about the highlight reel or guests from matthew stafford. It would be based on arm talent. And i guess my perspective of matthew stafford is a lot like what i feel like. Herbert or i- josh. Allen had a really really good year last year but prior to last year. I would try to group them in that same category right. I think the main thing that i think makes a quarterback or makes us a lot more hopeful for joe. Borough is the processing so two different things that i've seen from. Staffer is the lack of processing in very key moments or the clutch gene. Or the different thing that you need. I guess at the end of the game. I don't think mcveigh. Or whatever solves that i get what i would tell to. The guy that had them rate number four but it is interesting because like stanford you know. All the things you want in a quarterback stanford does have it just. You don't always see it right. It's like he does have the kind of clutch thing right. Whereas he's got a ton of fourth quarter comebacks he does bring them back a lot. He's got toughness you know. Are those videos where he just takes. This shot jumps up and kinda struggles way the line and makes the next play. You know he's got all those things. Plus his arm is armed. Talent is genuinely up there with the best in the nfl like his. He can do things. That only that group of mahomes josh allen aaron rodgers can do so. He's right up there with those guys but you know when you talk about talent overall you have to fall in the mental side of things. Well any isn't on the level of guys like tom brady when it comes to the mental processing stuff. It's not that he's not intelligent. He just isn't as consistent as those guys. And that is a thing that is part of talent that is like a mental trait of playing this game. And i don't think that that is explained by the detroit lions. I think that's just something that is in stafford and again. I just don't think that you know. Suddenly herring him with. Sean mcveigh like did removes that from his game. I think that's part of who he is. What the heck at alliance doi like. When you look at i look at that roster and i i just say what are they doing. They're obviously rebuilding. But i think the thing with them is they have job security right so everyone came in dan campbell their their new. Gm they've got. They've got the time they've got six year contracts. They know it's not going to get fixed in one offseason so they can go all right. Let's let's concentrate on one area this year and the next season. We'll we'll concentrate on the next area so this year. They've gone heavily with the offense and defensive line gone in the trenches right all right And look through their data points to say. That's not the way to do it. You should get the more valuable positions. I you should find receivers and cornerbacks But i think there's also a point of offensive line and defensive line tend to take longer to develop so maybe do want to get a jump on those guys and get them. you're one and then year two. You can come back with the receivers because you know. There's a ton of these guys. Hit the ground running and you don't necessarily need to give them like the lead up time or the redshirt freshman rookie year before they're up to speed and then presumably somewhere along the line. They're gonna find the quarterback. Because i think jared goff was taken essentially as a salary dump further. You know it's part of that deal to get the two first round picks. And if that wasn't true i think they'd have done more to give gough some receiver help this year right behind. You need to know. That's what i was saying. It's like yeah i could. I could give you talking about like year late less fix trenches and stuff but to totally ignore the position to me is a big flag that you know that something is not going on it. It bodes well for my fantasy because now cj hopkinson is is definitely a target of my. That's another one of my big sleepers like you can get them in six seven round. Most soil may leagues. And he's absolutely going to see over one hundred arkansas ninety seven last year right and and and then you know now you put together a wide receivers. I've never even heard of on like the back of the room. I've never even seen those guys. But i think it just tells you that like that. They know this year is a write off right. They're not trying to be as good as they can be this year. You know. they're not giving jared goff the weapons. He needs to show anything other than he's jared. Goff is a sacrificial lamb for them. This season right there jared there..

"No no major injuries or anything like that In within sight or whatever. God let's move to defense both looking at the On paper do you have any thoughts. you know like they they lose william jackson they lose loss and they bring a hendrickson. They bring in We're we're thinking that they're going to extend jesse basing hubbert pretty soon There's a couple of different things that woosie comes in. I think darius phillips always great it really really well by. Pf there are a lot of different pieces there. How do you feel about the bengals. Defense like coming into the season in. How do you feel about. Yeah i mean. I think the defense is still a work in progress. They've made a couple of moves that i think are maybe lateral moves. Maybe even slight steps in the wrong direction. You know. William jackson leaving and replacing the guy who's probably not going to be as good as william jackson. Kara lawson. I think trey hendrickson is probably a slight downgrade over carlson. Even though he had better sack totals a year ago. Like the pressure pressure rate. Those kinds of things weren't quite as good so you know it's not like trae understands a bad player but it's probably a slight step in the wrong direction compared with lawson You know you might hilton. Might kill nothing is a really good movie. I think he's been one of the better. Asked corners the last few years. So you know there's talent there. There are pieces on that defense. That are are very good and that they have been kind of for a while. I think they've had a decent amount of talent on this unit. They just haven't kind of put it all together yet. So i think ultimately events in today's nfl like it's nice to have but it's not gonna be the thing that propels you leaps and bounds in the right direction. The the bengals season is going to be all about what happens with joe berangere mar march and the defense just needs to kinda take steps in the right direction and hold up. Its end of the bargain. I think it's capable of doing that. We just have to see if all those pieces and come together for me. I always had this mantra our say your office is defense when i look at some of the early of stuff from patrick patrick mahomes there. There were some things where i will look at the divas. I say this is isn't good at all. But if i'm on the field and i'm putting points on the board. I really don't have to do much. Do you have a philosophy or you have like a team that you feel like right now kind of just gets it like on paper like they have everything they if you were constructing team. Yeah i mean. I think what we're seeing now is. There is a bunch of different ways to win. But you're you're not gonna get very far if you don't have the quarterback or at least it's really really hard to do it right so everybody is in this mode of. Let's find a guy that we believe. Is the future a quarterback and then now we rushed to like build everything around him so the browns kind of did that baker mayfield. The bills did a really good job. Josh allen bengals are definitely taken steps with joe borrow giving them the receiving core. Now now you need to make sure that offensive line is going to be good enough The chiefs mahomes have done it in an interesting way and because mahomes in the offense is so good. They're like they didn't need a good defense. They just needed the defense to stop being like the worst in the nfl which it was like right at the start of his career. You know they they. They brought in You know steve spagnolo. And they've changed things schematically as much as they have personnel. Amount of the chiefs. Defense is just. It's okay you're right. It's it's average average when you've got mahomes as your quarterback is more than good enough to get you to the super bowl every year. So yeah i think there's a bunch of different ways and then you've got a team like pittsburgh or the rams who have like the best defense in the nfl and they're trying trying to make the offense just good enough to get there and the rams will be interesting this year with matthew stafford potentially bring in this big upgrade to that offense. Because they're you know. The defense might take a step back from last year with brandon saline leaving town but it should still be really good. Now the question is can stafford propel the offense where needs to go europe pro because before this. I say i gotta italian. I gotta tie that in so we just had a show we were just talking to fantasy. Football lascaux one of my secrets that i was telling everybody like i kinda gave people a lot of steps one got asset as always there that you can probably get into nine nine ten round of a twelve man. League is matthew stafford. You tweeted the other day that you felt as though staffer was getting like over. I don't want to misquote you. What was the quote that you wrote on twitter where you were talking about matthew stafford. Yeah something like that. The the man. He staffers getting out of control right. Because espn put out their quarterback rankings. That are from Executives coaches players and some guy had matthew stafford is number four like the fourth best quarterback in the nfl. And look you know there. Are people out there that think stafford is a better quarterback than i am but then i do but ranking him four. It's just ridiculous like it's just silly by the the mental gymnastics. You need to do to get into four. Is crazy now like you know. He was six. I think in the rankings overall and it was up from eighth or something the year before that's closer like argument but saying they got mcveigh right and look i. I think the stafford might have a really good year this year. And certainly statistically which is you know where your fantasy stuff comes in. I think that might still be a really smart play. Because that offense should elevate quarterbacks and it should make them better from statistical point of view. The question is like well. Let's stop staffer being inconsistent. And will it stop him. You know making a decent number of mistakes compared with what he's capable of doing you know in our podcast. We add an seth galena on this week and we were talking a lot about stafford and it's like you know stafford's highlight reel is as good as mahomes as good as aaron. Rodgers goes any quarterback in the nfl. Like if all you're interested in is the good stuff is what he does really. Well you can make the argument. That he's the best quarterback in the nfl. He's right up there with it and that's why everyone always talks about his talent and talent is as high as anybody else but every time you're watching him you're like but why isn't this better like why why isn't mahomes. Why isn't the aaron rodgers and there's always been a group of people that just like dismiss that as was the lions right. It's detroit's fault. Mammy stafford is great. The reason he isn't aaron rodgers or mahomes is because he's been playing in detroit right. I just don't think that that holds up like he's always had pretty good pass protection. You had megatrend for having a career like he hasn't been let down by the group around him and they've you know they've chopped and changed coaches a lot and we've heard three or four times that the.

"Look good so you might have a ton of receiver talent in one of these developmental leagues. You're never gonna see much of it because the quarterback is running for his life the entire time and they just don't have a shot to to thrive so. Yeah look i think you know. Cincinnati are never gonna. They're not gonna take steps from where they were last year to being like a top offensive line. They don't have to like their job is not to get great on the offensive line just to get viable and to be like to have the line not be a problem and not be the reason that job goes down and you know we twelve next year. I think they've taken some steps their i'm with you. I think they could have done some more. And they could have thrown some more bodies at it. Unlike the reason that it smart is look. It's probably going to work out a win with the jets right. You're going to throw five six guys at it and three of them will workout but if you only eat throw one or two guys at it and that doesn't work out now you've done nothing like ninety. Didn't even get better. So you have to throw resources at it and you play the odds play. The fact that a lot of these guys are not going to work out and it's better to kind of overcome it and you know worst case scenario you throw all these resources that you bring in six guys and all them work out and now you have the better offensive line depth than anybody else in the nfl and if somebody goes down. It's not a problem because you suddenly have guys who can come off the bench. That's the worst thing that could happen if you do like throw all these resources at it if you don't do that and you don't you miss on the guys that you're bringing in You know now you've not only did you gonna waste the resources but you haven't actually fix the problem. He said the fix. I agree one hundred percent and i guess this move along because i know i spent a lot of it was a lot of people early in the day was like may talk some about office alaso because i told a couple of people hate. I'm gonna be talking sam. You guys got any questions so a lot of people who actually asked really good questions about office align some. You touched on that. I got to ask you the same thing. I put this out last week on twitter to. This is a common thing that we talk about to as bengals fans because for me. I'm a fan. So i like to champion the things that i think we do. Best to me i feel. As though at the very lease we are top-five wide receiver trio. Or why receive record. When i came out with a ranking system i had is listed as second in most of it is only because of the players that we have in the primary career at the. They're at in a lot of jamarcus ascending in also factor in audit take can do if you were thrust into play. We seen that with him. Having ryan finley play any still six hundred yards as a as a fourth option most teams in this is what a bring to anybody that will listen to my argument. Is that anybody that you say. That probably would be better than that. With exception of the tampa. Bay buccaneers right. 'cause they're the one that just have like this extreme package semi of just all types of wide receivers right any other of that. You could bring to my attention that you feel. Is those better. They're ever going to have an out date like older superstar or they're going to have a goddess battle injury or coming off a pd or something like that so with that being said give me top five wide receiver core. Yeah i mean. I think obviously tampa bay would be one of them. I think dallas will be another one. That's right there. The trio they put out with amari cooper michael gallant Cd lamb now. I think that's as good as anybody in the nfl. One two three. I think buffalo is still right out there even though they lost john brown Bringing in emmanuel sanders. I think is a smart move for them. I like what they have. I think denver could be a sneaky one as well even though they don't have a quarterback to take advantage of it yet but on paper i jerry duties route running translated. You know we saw that. You're one he's still an absolute fee non when it comes to running routes okay dropped a lot of pastas year one. But that happens sometimes. Right amari cooper having dropped eighteen passes as a rookie as well and then he's dropped eighteen. The last three years total so sometimes that fluctuates. But they're not getting portland sutton back. Tim patrick was really good last year in his place k. J. hamblur i still think is a lot to offer. And we didn't see that you're one so denver i think is a group. That's really good. And yeah cincinnati's right up there. I think it's funny. How much one guy can make a difference right because before the draft. You're kinda looking at that group and you're saying you know this group isn't really helping joe borough that much right. They've got You know t- higgins who played really well as rookie but you're kind of focusing on the things that he doesn't really do well and then tyler boy is just a slot receiver and they need this number one but then when you get the number one now you're saying well now you got t- higgins. Is this really great. Like number two. The can lincoln's contested catches in his possession. Guy and tyler void is great slot guy and as you said alden is great big bodied number four like suddenly the picture completely changes when you bring in this one guy that you think can be that you know number one superstar and i love march chase. I think his game was fantastic so if he does hit the nfl the way that we expect them to or the way that we saw from him in college then yes cincinnati's receiving group is a great one right for me it. This is another thing. I just want you to think about to in in the history of. Nfl we've gone back and look there's only about six different instances of three receivers getting a thousand yards right In two of those instances involve tight ends so a lot of bengals fans are feeling like myself. Feel like there's a real good chance especially with seventeen games. they can get a thousand yards. The one thing that i think that a lot of people probably aren't factor in like i said earlier by all those all those teams and stuff that you can name like. Denver is lacking quarterback dallas. You know like. I believe in those guys amari cooper tomato at one point was considered to be a bus and he's resurrected his career and he still and he's really good. You always had the talent but there's always like these holes and flaws in it. I feel like even when i look at the metrics from in different things that i look. You know like just looking at slot yards in. You know for tyler boyd or different things like that. He's always at. He's always at the top. So then we look at t higgins. He was hampered by injury at the end. Soft tissue injury. Nothing to play for he would have easily at a thousand yard so like i feel like all the pieces are there to be great but like you said the number one is the main important part but this is the unicorn situation. There's very rarely in time. Only time i can think about is when cam. Newton came into the league. Where you have this quarterback that is on this contract and these guys. That are ready to go like ed. Lee level. Usually a- quarterback comes into a bad situation. And i feel like this is one of the rare times a history. And you're gonna remember this conversation that this guy is here and he's ready with guys that are ready in the primary career ready to go..

"Up. Okay now. i can't hear you muted. Yeah you know what i'm saying. I feel like we're back. I'm talking about. I don't i don't know what this happens. We're live he's gonna have to host the show from it you can host it. I mean i'm not mad at that at all. I do a really good job. I actually listened to you gotta. Usd the lot is one of my favorite podcasts. Guys don't if you haven't heard it or you haven't been listening to please make sure you check out the pf Podcast because it's one of the best ones up there but a lot of different things that you were saying. I i really agree with I think for me move a four. I just didn't see. And i think this is one of the things that we asked. Pf eager eric. I just. I don't know why but we asked him that last week and i was really talking about positional value and just in my philosophy. Is that a lot of things just aren't doing or not teams at all. Are doing seven step drops so what you're getting from elite tackle or guard or whatever whatever offers line played that you're looking for. I just didn't feel like it. Warranted the pig and it would have been like a sefik in my mind but for most fans looking at like you said you let off in the show. Boroughs had a major injury. They're like hey. How can we keep uninjured. And that's a big concern for me too. So there's an argument. I guess for all. Yeah but i. I think you know the thing about that is that one guy isn't fixing that right like to take example upright. You need five guys. That aren't a problem and sewell's gonna make a big difference like he's going to affect that but he isn't gonna he's isn't gonna fix it so the issue with that is that cincinnati's offensive line. Last year was one of the worst in the nfl. They need to take big steps across the board. And you know you can make an argument that hey you get sewell. In joan williams takes step forward next year. And you know all of a sudden. You're you're getting sort of two three players offense line. Then it's easier to patch up two problem spots rather than five. But yeah like i think that's the strongest argument against peninsula. Was that there. Was this graphic that went around like a mean that was you know what happens if you if you have a wider heating chan. I'm not than joe bars. Getting killed or graph hated that graphic. And it's like yeah. That's only if if it's a one on one pass rush versus like offensive linemen thing. The problem is like you can have school and then the other four guys are getting other reason. He's getting killed and exactly the same thing is happening so it was never quite that simple. That was always my problem with the whole argument right. I think i. I guess if i'm in the war room in the off season i think a lot of bengals fans feel this way is that they didn't do enough. So one of my theories is that they put a lot of pressure on jackson. Carmen like day one to play out of position in go play there at the right guards spot. Where they're they're slating him already before. The season even started so for me. I would like to see them do a lot more. And then that graphic really look silly because now we're looking at debt in. You're actually looking at a guy that's actually play the position. And then you got all these guys that can kind of former unit and then it warrants. The it puts more merit to the jamaa chase. Picks me I guess moving along with that. Or whatever for for a team like We're talking about the steelers earlier or me and my partner with something other steelers earlier for them to come into this season in now. They're looking at a situation that we just came from where you now looking at all these moving pieces and potentially one of the worst lies in office a lot. I mean in the nfl. Do you feel as though that the drop off or they're lying on paper is really that bad or is it people kind of overselling that right now i mean. I think it's pretty bad on pay for got like one you know one player that's played any kind of Extensive time one more player. Who's played a little bit. Look good doing it and then a bunch of question marks anytime anytime you're changing that many guys on the offensive line. You're just almost certainly going to struggle next year because it's really hard is an offensive line shortage in the nfl on most teams. Don't have good offensive lines when you all of a sudden have to find four five guys to plug in the chances of you hitting on all five of them all for them just so small like we saw this with the jets you know. Last year they threw a ton of bodies that offensive line and we were making the point. All offseason jets fans right sweet. Our offensive lines fixed gonna. We added all these guys. We added mci in the draft. We added these free agents. It's done like we're we're we're better. They're like yeah but the chance of all those guys being above average your one is really small and you know maybe one or two of the guys will work out to or the other two won't and then you've got half good offensive line and that's what happened. Light mci becton. I think was better than we thought he would be. But the other guys weren't in kana mcgovern didn't play well like you're still you still didn't fix the offensive line right So i think that's part of the problem with pittsburghers too many guys they need to replace and not all of it was their fault. You know markey's fancy retires. David castro was going to be injured anyway. Wasn't going to be able to play so they didn't really have a choice there. But i think just by default it. There's there's a really small chance of that offensive line being anything other than a problem. And you know ben. Rothlisberger is probably never needed the line more than he does right now because of his you know the only is and the fact that he is and bush and the field as much as he used to anymore. So yeah on paper. That offensive line looks a major problem for the entire offense as a whole and the thing that's going to prevent them taking a step forward from last year in is crazy. The way you said that up to is like. I feel like the strategy that they went with this kind of similar to the buffalo bills. The the the year prior is like go get like eight guys like mid mid tier guys to seki all these guys like that. Put them all together and then just have a battle royal in for me. That was one of the things that i was pushing a lot for this off season. So them not to do it. I feel like they're putting themselves as a bengal fan like against another kind of crazy hole where everything really has to work. And if they don't they don't have like the debt pieces that i would like to see. I guess to fill that in. Is that like a common thing that you see around the league late. How many teams i pose. I put this on twitter one day. I said that. I think the bengals on on paper or just going off i talk to. That's my guy Probably tackle wise probably the fourteen. Th ranked tackle tandem in the nfl offers a line. I probably said probably we looked at every single offers line. I said the probably about the twenty second. Maybe eighteenth ranked office line of national football league. Then a lot of people will say well you being homeware stuff like that. I just want to give you a or you talking about like how office aligned play is looking around the nfl currently right now. How many teams on paper do you feel super confident. Come in with a starting five right now. Office align play that you feel really good about. That's the thing there just aren't many of them And like you know. Everybody thinks that they're offensive. Line is either way better or way worse than it actually is but when you look at this is why when you get the af or the xfl yet one of these other leagues pool up And a lot of the reason that the play just isn't good enough is because the offensive lines are terrible right like there's not enough good offensive lineman for the nfl let alone for a second league. That's trying to develop and just get viable play and ultimately like the offensive line is the thing that lets everybody else..

"monson" Discussed on Cincy Jungle

"To order pretty much anything we wanna eat with the click of a but but at what cost. I'm amadiya host of the latest season of land of the giants. It's called delivery wars and we're going deep on third party restaurant delivery and how companies like jordache. New breeds have changed the way we eat. All episodes are now follow. Land of the giants. Wherever you get your podcasts from recode eater. Vox media podcasts. Welcome everybody this. Is the origin new. Black podcast. I'm doing a special episode in our pf f-series this week. We've got none other than sam. Monson. sam. Please talk to the people. Tell them how you doing tonight. Or is the new black podcast normally. I'm joined with my buddy as boogie. He had to do some stuff and so they're probably used to seeing that but we are really really glad to have you tonight. Thanks for having me. I'm doing good Yeah let's let's. Let's talk some football all right. So how you feeling about the upcoming season as far as the bengals go in general like do you have any general thoughts or any hot takes that you just want to lead off and just throw it in people's face that you hate somebody or you think is really really cool for the bagels non. Nothing crazy. I just think that you know. It's an exciting time for the bengals. Because because joe borrow analogy march as and what those guys can do and obviously the big thing we all want to see is is the joe borough comes back under sent you know and he looks like the guy that he was before that knee injury took him out. Obviously the last thing any of us want to see is bowl comes back. And he's he's not quite the same guy or you see any kind of lingering holdover effect from that knee injury because you know it wasn't just like a routine knee injury. You know like tom brady. Apparently now played the super bowl with a torn mc l. and. nobody expects. Tom brady to be any different now. I mean he was good in the super bowl right with playing on the injury but joe boroughs injury. That was severe. You know it was multiple things. It was a major knee injury of the kind that can cause lingering problems but let's hope they don't because borough i thought was really encouraging your one a now you pair him up with a guy who he had this incredible connection with in college and just on paper that could be a phenomenal. Just a phenomenal up with those two guys. Just these deep passes from borough. Did you march as again. Those are so good at lsu. I'm excited to see again right. And the same thing for us. And i say us. I'm talking who they nation for the most part. We developed a series on this channel. Here it got really really popular picked up a lot of traction. It was called the civil war where we pick panini verses Jomar chase. I was on saint chase my partner was benign if you were in the bengals draft room and you were sitting there at the time based off of what you just said boroughs injury. Different things of that magnitude was the direction that you would go in. Does that have anything to do with the impact of the position. It's funny because everybody was like staunchly on one side of the other right. There were like battle lines drawn and you are either chase or and you know there was no like detente between them. It was one or the other. I could see the argument either way and honestly. I think that none of us are smart enough to be able to weigh all of the various elements involved in that decision accurately right. Because it isn't just you know. Do you fix the offensive line or do you fix the receiver group. Because you're going to get a chance to come back in the second third round and address the other position for the offensive line. It isn't just one. you know. Guy fixing the whole unit. You need to fix most of the offensive line right so it's not just the sewell fix it. It's how much does just grabbing one guy. You know address the offensive line or how much does Adding the fact the job borough now has a receiver that he has confidence that he can put the ball in the air. Sooner and borough year one held onto the ball a little bit longer than he should. And that's the thing that all young quarterbacks tend to struggle with. So how much is he going to improve that right. How much is that to improve. So there's just all these different facets and anybody like coming down and saying it's definitely this argument for the other side. I think he's crazy. And i think that's both sides right right so like if i was the guy making the decision in the bengals war room i probably would have lent jomar chase but i would have been on the fence. It would've been a fifty fifty to me. And i said you know. Let's let's almost vote. Let's get a consensus in the room. And if we come down sixty forty the other way sewell versus versus chase. I'm okay moving in that direction. I think it's a tossup. I tweeted at the time that you know the bengals made the right choice. Going with tamar chase overpay soule but they would have made the right choice if they come over your march. I just don't think you can. I don't think there was a wrong call. I think either one addresses an area of need and well in physician to come back in the second and third round address. The other spot so either way works. I guess the the argument will be is okay. You could have something wrong if the impact player in the second round. Or because they wouldn't have mangled you know i guess in our history they they don't have a history of trading up right so whatever will fall to them in a second round. The argument will be like. You're looking at a rashard bateman or you're looking at a in on the other side of the fence. You're looking at a wide david so you're looking at these guys like that. The biggest argument that i have is that jomar chase is marginally better than the wide receivers that were coming in the second round. Do you think it was that big of a gap or do you feel like it was just like he was better but you know he's here but there's a tear be would resolve. Bateman was the kid that went to the allies. More like guys like that. I think it was a big gap between jamaa chase and certainly the guys that were likely to be available in the second round. I think he is like a genuinely incredibly talented receiver. I think devante smith is right up there with him but to me. Those two guys were head and shoulders above anybody else in this class. I really like bateman as well. I think if you're looking for a tea or two guy if you like he would be like the next one that i would take in terms of a well rounded complete skill set but obviously he didn't make it that far right other teams thought the same thing so yeah it was always going to be a risk in terms of what you're left with at the position that you don't address but the thing about receiver i think is that you know we've seen the last couple of years. It's getting easier and easier to find receivers. That are really good. I mean guys that we might not think are up there with jemaah chase or last year with a cd-rom or whoever it is going at the top you know guys like chase klay pool. Come in the middle rounds and suddenly look like one of the best receivers out there. Just in jefferson. Was i think what the fifth wide receiver off the board set rookie records that you know broke randy. Moss is rookie records. Like those are the kinds of things that are happening to these guys. That don't look like superstar. Prospects that are going at the top of the draft whereas offensive tackle is a safe pick. But i think teams probably are a little bit better at kind of identifying the difference between you know a surefire first round guy and somebody who's going in the mid rounds who maybe has the physical tools to do some of this stuff but is not anywhere near the the the polish prospect. Those guys are. I think if the argument is you know what's the drop off like at this position. When you get into the mid rounds. I think you would lean tackle froze.

Western Heat Wave Virtually Impossible Without Climate Change, Researchers Say

"When we had our record heat a few days ago, I turned to our friend Cliff, Mass. University of Washington, professor of Atmospheric Science and Cliff told us that if global warming played any role, it was minimal because temperatures have gone up about one degree over 70 years. These were temperatures 40 45 degrees. Above normal. So if anything, climate change contributed to about one degree out of this record, heat will imagine my shock surprise and I When I saw the Seattle Times a couple days ago, and their headline read without climate change record Pacific Northwest Heat wave would have been near impossible, researchers say. So I don't know who to believe. Sound times or Cliff Mass. I doubt if the Times will come on with me. So I got Cliff Mass on to talk about this. Good afternoon, sir. Good afternoon. Okay, so the cell times is directly contradicts because two days Prior to their story on the cliff, Mass Weather blog. You asked if global warming was the cause of the great heat wave and you said Science says no. So here you're telling us no sometimes is telling us? Yes. What are we to make of all this? Well, you know, you've got to look for where The Seattle Times got this information. Basically, a group of people got together and put together very rapidly. This report over a few days. And it's basically a political report. And in fact, it gives all kinds of advice about global warming. But people must do. But if you read the report itself, which I didn't detail its base, it's essentially flawed. And in fact It's not even consistent internally. Um, the headline says, Oh, this thing could never have happened without global warming. Then you read inside the report you say they say, Well, it could have happened, but by by random chance it could have happened by natural processes.

"Of accessories to complete the experience a third size coming sooner than later but a Pit Barrel Cooker.com and let him know the barbecue Central show sent you were back up and running before we get into the Love Story. Yeah. I mean I am Totally interested on how you run for. I mean, what is the better part of fifteen years going to this place and that place and as you say living life mayonnaise like I understand the theory and mindset but financially and physically like how the hell do you do that? I can't even conceptualize off, you know, you have a hangover concoction, you know, and you work and that was a bartender waiter. Mostly I started out in the kitchen's doing dishes and might work off line and doing stuff like that and then I moved out and bussing and hosting a hosted at Denny's at one point. I think that one server really yeah that too and I I started as then it was a waiter for a real long time in a bartender. And so what's cool about it is, you know, like you work in the night, you know, you go to work at 4 you get off at 10 midnight. Sometimes later and you got a hundred bucks in your pocket, you know and you you go spend it and you go have a good time and then four days before rents, do you picked up shifts and you work your ass off to pay rent and then you start on the 1st all over again. And that's the wife man. That's how it was and if you could save enough you could go do some cool stuff like, you know move to New Orleans and Chicago. I don't know know and do whatever you want to do and and live the life. That's that's how you do it. Was it a pressure? Pressure. Yeah now I guess know there's times where you know shit got ugly and you know, yeah, I got kicked out of a house with 24 hours notice to move out and there's other times where we couldn't even keep their stuff had to leave and those times I had a couch Surf and you know finding some place and you know, and then life gets you you start wondering where you're going to be in up and you know is it could be my life. I'm I'm a forty-five-year-old waiter, you know and you worry about that stuff sometimes but you know, then just don't at the same time because you know, I'm stuck again. It's all about that, you know experiencing stuff, you know, I don't want to die in regret anything. It's kind of the mantra. So, where do you know how I where do you run into your wife? so, you know, we're going to restaurants a long time supposed to be working in management end up becoming a restaurant manager and I at a restaurant that I was a bartender and waiter at so, you know had relations with some of the people there before I was a manager. So I had a strict rule of not dating anyone from work. That was my rule. Another thing is I was never really into younger girls write all these always older my friends would date someone like three years younger than me. And I was always making fun of them like, oh you guys want to you know, come over and drink some Kool-Aid and watch Lion King, you know go from the back of it. And so it's always bagging on them for dumb stuff. So I'm down in st. George Utah managing a Red Robin and I hire this host. Excuse me boss and we kind of you know talk whatever I play poker. I used to play. I used to think I was in become as poker Pro, right? So I'll see you trying to play cards. And so we got this relationship going through cards and perhaps we should come over my house that you try to play and we talked into the night, you know how that goes. And so one day it's Halloween and and 2009 And she's dressed in a banana suit, and I don't know what I was dressed as I was like a I don't know. I I don't dress up for Halloween. So it was probably some totally random. So she's totally decked out as a banana and she said the world work and I say something smart-ass to her and she looks at me and that look man. It was just like they say in the books just like lightning and I knew that second that I was going to marry me that shake and so my birthday's coming up, so I asked her to come up to Utah with me and hang out and she's like Okay cool. So we go up there and we come back and she sleeps over my apartment and we thought she never leaves my house. Wow, so that's like the robin Linda our story but in Utah like multiple. Yeah. Robin was like they did it for like three days and they moved it. But for me, I'm literally that day. She we decided we were going to be a couple and then we had to keep it secret was going to tell you know, the, you know, the corporate, you know the happening right and but she dead Into my house and that that was it man and I told her day 3 and like we're getting married. So now it's going to go do you quickly get married at that point or I mean were you just saying we're going to get married. There's no definitive timetable on accomplishment. I should say this. I forgot to say cuz I set this up I was thirty-three and she was Twenty-One and she was off coordinate. So I broke both rules. I I that shit. Yeah, and I dated a young full Manny. Well years your Junior. Oh, yeah. Wow right off. You know, I'm I had never been interested in a girl even at all, cuz you know, they they wasn't on the same level as I'm not today. I was better or anything. I just was over here and they were over there or you know, this is interesting because you know, when we talk about you behind your back with the other embedded correspondents though. One thing that comes up all the time is I mean, we're roughly the same. Age I think you're younger than me by three years, but I mean so we'll roughly the same age. But the refrain that I hear is Rusty's an old soul Rusty's an old song So if you're somebody that is knowledge against dating younger women and now you're going to marry somebody that that was that age were twelve when she was born to make it sound even weirder like what is it about her is she then an old soul as well or I mean, what about that dog personality allows you to diverge into that Realm. Exactly that like she you know, her mom was really big on. Well, she hasn't traveled and done enough. I'm a dude. She knows exactly what she wants. She knows not me but in life give me a new wage. I see probably when she was thirteen years old. I don't know but she just sat girl that just knows what she wants and she knows she wants to be a mom. She wants that's all she's ever wanted to do. She wants to have kids be married and that's what she wants and she's fine with whatever and she was just super old soul is exactly is the best way to say it cuz we would have conversations. I just love listening to her talk. Anyone at that time her age. I was like, oh God Jake Paul Justin Bieber, he's great. Okay, it's time to go and it was it wasn't weird until I hung out with her friends, you know, and they would talk and they would do stuff. I was like, oh Jesus. This is weird. Thought you said like, you know, I'm like did you ever do this? I wasn't born yet like you weren't born yet. Yeah. Wow. Wow..

"Food from you know that we made you know, we grew up with locally-sourced. I guess at the time. I didn't know it but to me it was amazing. So yeah, we were very cook oriented family. I I wanted to cook when I was very little I start a business when I was five six and I would make Cereal by mixing cereals together. I've had it a very nice thing I put on my door with a name made cereal. My like I said, I was a latchkey kid sort of so I would have to cook for my younger brother and sister at a really young age. So I cook a lot and my father and grandfather and uncles would smoke meat and so I would try and do a 2000 side with random stuff. Like I would see a metal box on my parent would put someone in that and a great and I'm going to smoke this and I wanted to do that so bad and that's what they would do is they would smoke dead. Um, we had rabbits and chickens and turkeys and we'd sell them to the bars would go around and sell them might so and cook them go at night people would buy him at these bars and that's often do they make a living that way but that just kind of a side gig but watching him inject and smoke and do all that stuff and was really cool. So that's the food scene I grew up on and I was into it very early age. I want to I want to go to culinary school outside right outside of school. That's what I wanted to do. My whole life. I was a student of cooking end up going to culinary school when I was forty which was you know, a few years back now, you know, so but you know, I've been reading cookbooks when I was a kid and it was my favorite kind of book to read and still is So when you are out of high school, you don't go to college you're well, I do I do an issue with a film study by drop out very quickly. How do you get in the cot? Was it like a community college or something? Okay, so I went to community college right out of high school because I was one of the worst students ever not because I was adult but I had a a lack of desire to apply myself. And also I didn't care and that's why I didn't get to go to real college wage when everybody else one after our senior year, so I had to learn how to be a student at Community College before I ended up transferring to the college that I ended up graduating from. So you get down food service jobs, you're living the life that you want to live. How does a future start to take shape for you? It doesn't man it just everything fell apart filling. The place life was kind of of an adventure something like my When I Was Eighteen till I was thirty three and everything in between was just whatever, you know drive to Vegas. Let's go do this. Let's travel here. Let's go here. Let's move to New Orleans. Let's live there for a while and kind of Bohemian looking back on it a little bit but I live downtown Salt Lake City, you know, it was it was a fun little time to live in Salt Lake and had a bunny music scene. It was really cool played a mute. Like I said played Matt bands and lived that life for a long time and it was it was fun and then I met my wife and and I've always wanted to be a dad and settle down that was always the goal. But you know, I wasn't like out there searching for it, you know, and we grew up in Utah and it's predominantly more money and you you were Eighteen with five kids already. So it was different, you know for someone like me to I want to do that. Yeah. I didn't grow up Mormon. I grew up in an extremely Mormon town. We were maybe Man, we were one of ten families. Maybe they weren't Mormon at least out that way. So, you know not living that life was you know in Salt Lake goes a little bit easier was it like Darryl said that, you know, the other families were warning their kids about people like you Oh, I you go to a friend's house. And then you weren't allowed back. You know why sometimes it can tell you what my mom says that you're going to teach me about the devil and I'm like, oh, all right wage. I mean stuff. He's probably right. But yeah, I'm not going to go crazy about it kid know. But yeah, it was like that absolute like that, you know is the typical, you know seen the movies of like you're walking down the street in the mom grabs your kid moves across the street, you know, like don't I didn't help that. I was wearing makeup as a boy as a teenager. But yeah, that was a I was a weird kid man. I'm telling you. What time are you looking back? So let's break here.

We are in terms of like an hour and it's the barbecue Central show doing barbecue Central show things rounding out the origin stories and we go right to the hotline and welcome in the newest and not responding Rusty Monson. Hey, rustan. Hey, how's it going? What's up Bristol? Chillin so, you know I look in the back over your left shoulder and I think there's like somebody sitting there at a desk behind you but there's nobody said no try put on a drink is award just in my periphery, right? So we're doing origin stories. You caught the last part of dark riches who a long time. You you Utah, Utah lien, Utah person. Did he have you done? See we say like, ohioan, but is there something out for, Utah? City of Utah. All right city of Utah in yesterday long time ago city of Ukiah. Yeah. It's weird. Dude know that'd work. I know think it's from Utah from the city of Utah and we'll leave it at that. Yeah that that's the best way to do it. All right. So roughly when when and where were you born? I was born in American Fork Utah in nineteen seventy-seven. So if you guys have seen Footloose with Kevin Bacon, that was the town I was born and raised in it was just like that am literally just like that movie a movie is if anyone wants to know what it was like for me growing up. I was Kevin Bacon in Footloose. And yeah, I could actually, you know, I never worked the roller mills which is you know, the prominent place he worked but yeah, that's what I that's how I grew up. That's exactly it. I didn't dance though. I should have I didn't know there was so much dance space in Lehigh until I watched that movie. So now that you know, but it was a that was it. That's how it was. What was it like growing up for your previous the high school like as a as a young Rugrats or somebody that had a lot of friends that you have piled around with and got into stuff or you know, what was a young thug when I was kind of a latchkey kid. So my mom and dad both worked and we would go to school and come home and we're left to our own devices. So yeah, I have a we have a lot of free ranging, you know, we were very free-range kids. So we we had a big old, you know property we live on and we just do all the things we could do. Just you know, wherever yeah just come on when the lights turn on, you know on the same thing kind of kids. So yeah, we grew up in the neighborhood. It was a small town man. I'm telling you. It was a lot of you know, yeah friends, you know, but it was just small so you kind of hung out and groups of who you lived by birth. Working. How was Were You by mountains like Derek was? Oh, yeah all over we used to go hunting was a big thing. We did when I was a kid. That's how I got into smoking Meats actually. But yeah, just anywhere you go left right South North there's mountains everywhere on Utah. We're completely surrounded by them. So it's it's a really cool place to grow up because of the outdoors, you know, a lot of people come here to Utah because it's so beautiful. There's so many different kinds of outdoorsy. There's the deserts, you know, and there's North you know, it's very green and I'm really cool and we spend a lot of time out there, you know hunting rabbits with BB guns. And you know, we're the kind of kids. I had a rifle when I was nine, you know, it's just how it was back then we just took off and wherever and just shoot stuff, you know, shoot windows out of old cars and soup stop signs and killed whatever we could that's just how it was. So, where are you from a birth? Were the parents stayed together? Yeah until I moved out they stayed together until I moved out what happened then they got a first moved out. My dad was a dick I love him but he was a dick like he wasn't cool man, like all through growing up. He was a dick or just like yeah a little bit. Yeah after or what? Yeah, he you know, he liked to party up and you know for a long time my mom was she was trying to keep everything together and he was someone who would go out and we have a place called Wendover that's about an hour and half from here that has casinos and that was a really thing, you know, he liked to go do I mean there was a time where he hawked the are wage wants a wedding ring to go out there. I think just crazy stuff man. He was a he was a degenerate. No, it was a high-functioning degenerate. He was he was always nice to us kids. I mean, it was never a problem in the household. He would just come home and you know in the morning you you're hungover. You don't want to talk to kids and that's just kind of how he was just Grumps a lot, you know, and we'd go hunting and fishing and stuff and it was all cool. But you know, we grew up in those parties at our house and you know, we'd be sleeping and dead bemused G plan we wake up and there was beers and stuff. You know, when I was a kid little kid, I would go out and drink the Bud Lights, you know, the problem was is that they would spit their chew into the Bud Light cans and I didn't drink beer until I was like twenty-five out of necessity because I just couldn't do it cuz to me, I didn't know the difference. I didn't know there wasn't you in every single Bud Light, you know, I would yell. Yeah, but my dad he was just kind of like now, you know, and he didn't want to give that that lifestyle up and he was just how he was and you know, he you know, he he was a brick mason. We he was a coal miner for a long time if he gives you any idea of kind of how I grew up. Yeah. I just one of those, you know play hard kind of guys, but you know didn't work hard. Were there other siblings in the house. Yeah. I have a sister. That's younger than I am by two years and my brother is younger than her by two years and that was it. That was the three of us. We were pretty close. We you know, like I said small town so you kind of get close to your brothers and sisters, you know kind of stick together. But yeah, it was really fun. It was a good time growing up in that town. And that that time that was right around the last of the murders on if you heard about that, but that happened a couple of blocks from our house. Really. Yeah, if you guys are into something that true crime go look at the Lafayette murders is pretty damn crazy. Do you have a thumbnail on that? No, I don't know. I don't think so. What do you mean like like a 5-second description of like what we what happened was is the Lafferty's where these brothers who made a church that way it was a splinter of the Mormon church and then they believed that they were coming up to, you know, take over and cleansed whatever, you know, we know what those people believe. I don't know. I don't know but they're Brothers wage wanted any of their brothers their and their wives and other people Bishops in the Mormon Church were getting in the way. So they had to kill list of people that are going to go kill. Well everyone chickened out but the two older brothers and they went and actually killed the wife of their brother and their infant son two houses went from yeah. So yeah crazy if you guys ever read like Jon krakauer's under the banner heavy, that's really good book, but it talks a lot about that. There's a plug John cracker reach out to me. I'd love to say hi. That's right. Big fan. Wow. All right. So what was high school like you get into as I was talking with a human that can be a weird time for some kids, but other kids don't seem to have any problem with it. So going in being the oldest of the aunts and kids. How did you find high school life to be I actually loved it and in Lehigh you were on the football team or you're on the rodeo team and.

"You sean. I think you said you had a question for Dustin. Is that right before we did but actually would rather give some time to people who have waited on facebook. One essentially are come. I co worker. Jamie Martorana is lurking in the background. Running the tech aspect of this. She might be able to come on and read some questions from facebook or other social media hype Jamie. Thanks for joining us. Having me and Kate and Justin thanks for joining US tonight. Thank you so much. So Katie. On facebook has a question she would like to know. How does one become involved in the prison and Justice Writing Program? That's a great question Our program is you might have heard is that. I'm not sure if that means from a volunteer perspective or from participant perspective but from a participant perspective. If you want the handbook right to us or have somebody else contact us at prison. Writing Dot Org. We send that for free as mentioned earlier. Our Mentor program actually is currently at capacity and the way that people become eligible for it is by applying to the prison writing awards by sending work so pen dot Org backslash. Prison writing is where all the information on those efforts live at shares. More about that in terms of volunteerism. Unfortunately I hate to say it. We are totally saturated people looking volunteer at this time. And just don't have any open positions. We do have a wait list for mentorship. So that's something that interests you. You're willing to wait a potentially for year to be paired with somebody. We do pare mass parents once a year. Are you welcome to email us and obtain the application for but part of the reason that we're servicing advocacy opportunities in? These newsletters is because people do want to be involved and for our team of two. Unfortunately managing more volunteers is not something that we currently have capacity for. But stay in touch with us for sure because that might change some point. Thank you know the questions German. So it doesn't look like any other questions have folded on facebook quite yet but if I myself can ask a question and this is for both Justin cates. What does this collaboration between artists and poets on the inside and artists and poets? On the outside. What does that mean to you both as artists yourselves? You WanNa go first so you can you go? I. I'll go I'll go after you. What can.

"The searchlight series at eastern state penitentiary store excite in Philadelphia. I'm Sean Kelly. I'm here live at eastern state penitentiary for our weekly searchlight. We're going to START SEARCH LIGHTS OFF For the foreseeable future. Unfortunately we running through some numbers As of today and US prisons in jails. There are three hundred three thousand three hundred. Thirty eight cases confirmed infections of covert nineteen. There have been fifty fifty deaths today to people incarcerated in jails and prisons. There's also prison staff again. More than three thousand members of the prison staff around the United States have been confirmed with a virus and sixteen deaths. We're going to keep looking at these numbers at the start of every searchlight moving forward for those of you who don't know eastern state penitentiary. We are a prison museum in Philadelphia. The prison was built on the belief. That people are inherently. Good and can be rehabilitated. Through solitary confinement that is has a distinctive wagon wheel floor plan that was copied all over the world and there are about eighty three thousand people who were incarcerated inside this building men women and yes children as well. The prison was opened today for tours was abandoned in Nineteen seventy-one today we give tours when we're able when it's safe to do so we have artist's installations like this glorious piece by Jesse Crimes. This is a mural that he made while incarcerated in federal prison this is our graph illustrating the US rate of incarceration the highest in the world by far and our exhibit companion exhibit is called prisons. Today ask questions like have you ever broken the law and what is criminality and do prison work. And what are we? What should we do next last year? We had three hundred and ten thousand daytime. Visitors including twenty-eight thousand school visits. We are proud. Second chance employers. We seek out people with the experience of incarceration to join our education team. We find it's one more tool if they choose to use it That we can use that. They can use to engage our visitors in discussions of the impact of the policies. Around incarceration in the United States are big project. Last year was called hidden lives illuminated. We worked for over a year inside of two prisons here in the Philadelphia Area Teaching animation to artists or incarcerated This is working on his On his film and then we projected those films onto the front wall of eastern state penitentiary for months last summer. You what we're doing here. We encourage you to become a member. I can also support us in many ways from our website Which you see right there. The science close to the public because of the virus through at least may thirty first I. We have wrought much of our programming online. Those hidden lives luminated. Films are being feature one per week out. Different different film focused on every week this week. It's Davids film called freedom. We have a twice weekly visit video. Podcast it's called prisons and the pandemic. It's three minute episode twice a week covering what's happening in American prisons in jails and detention centres with this virus. I can find that on facebook. We have what we call the hospital tour twice. I saw once a week Wednesdays at two thirty live Matt Murphy from our team talks about issues of health both historically and currently in prisons and of course we have the searchlight series. Next week's topic is cove in one thousand nine hundred impact on incarcerated youth. We have heard on contain Martinez from youth. I rethought on a Terry from New Jersey Institute of Social Justice Vincent Schiraldi from the Columbia School of social work. And it's moderated by Liz Ryan from. She's the president and CEO of the youth. I initiative join US. One week from tonight for searchlight but tonight we have Cates Meissner She is a pen America. She's the Panamerican Prison Injustice Writing Program Director Welcome cates we're going to be joined in a few minutes by Justin Reveals Monson. He's pen America writing for justice fellow in his poet. He'll be calling in. So hey it's welcome to searchlight from eastern state penitentiary. Thank you for having me and I was just smiling to see Vinnie. Giraldi on your next week is he'll also an upcoming issue of our newsletter. He is a a real leader in this field. Bigtime happier topics about right now. But agreed what? It is We're just a few minutes actually. Did the introduction a little faster than I thought I would few minutes our second guess. Justin is going to be dialing in hit. You want to tell us a little bit more about our guest Justin and how you know him And then we'll be a unfortunately kind of a lab process them online here with us but a little bit about how you know Justin while I knew of Justin's work a little bit. Before he became a writing for justice fellow. He'd won our prison writing awards and honorable mention a number of years back and so I have read this poem. Thought it was quite a phenomenal. So it's really exciting to see his work elevated through the fellowship the fellowship by the way the prison writing awards and I'll talk a little bit more about our program down the line in prison. Writing Words is solely for currently Karsh Writers and the rain for Justice. Fellowship is a very prestigious opportunity. Eight hundred people apply to across the US. It is an ecosystem of writers. Confronting mass incarceration through various mediums. And is not just people justice involvement? Certainly we have currently and formerly incarcerated to a currently incarcerated fellows. Each round justin was part of our inaugural class last year cohort but but we have people representing all different interests in the field so through that Justin one obviously the fellowship and because he's able to be in communication more than some other folks because Jay communication system which will also talk about a little bit down the line. I found that I was able to communicate with him almost as easily as somebody on the outside. Not Quite. That's not always the case. It's rarely the case in fact says through that because I'm also poet in my other life and Justin's a poet and we share a lot of the same influences reading looking at who are interested in we really developed also a friendship through the work in in a in a shared aesthetic. So it's really a pleasure to get to each your him and bring him on today and hear his thoughts. I think they eat will offer a lot of insight around a variety of topics for people who are tuning it tonight more about communicating with people who are incarcerated as do. This work is a challenge that we have as well in our work. And I'm sure you face it at least as much as we do that you know you wanNA partner with people and bring their voices into the projects And the communication is often We'll hear it here in a moment. Even when a good situation I say relatively good like Justin's where three of us spoke yesterday or speaker got an a moment Even that at such there's so many barriers in the the communication ends up being so challenging. If you say more about working with creative people on these projects yeah and I think it's part of what I will be later but certainly you know I mean in a kind of lucky way or a decision made is that we don't work with. We don't actually do classes on the inside. Where National Program? We work with individuals through the mail snail mail and occasionally through one of these kind of pay to play email systems depending on people have access to it depending on the money on etc. So right now. It's even harder because we're doing a once a week. Mail pick up because the virus at the office thankfully. My team member has a car. If he didn't we would be really at a luck and And we get a stack of mail. Uk High Foot high a week and people are requesting all kinds of support. And so obviously when you're doing an editorial process are awards that I mentioned earlier are in theology that the work is very raw and unedited. Because we can't go through a real aditorial process in the turnaround. You need a good couple months because of the snail pace all prison mail is reviewed as we're GONNA here tonight and I'm thankful in advance to everybody who sticks around embarrassed with US Justin's phone calls aren't fifteen minute increments Hang UP AND CALL BACK. The gotTa go through a whole screening. That would in a moment so people's people's lives and communication are one hundred percent red often censored it's often up to the mail room whose mail gets through or not clerk working that day Actually I I. I don't know if we can include this. I wrote a Tony. Eighteen Bed about it for the Guardian. That details of what that looks like you send us a link or put it on a facebook page along with this review that makes lot We've uh here in Pennsylvania. There's a the policy is that all male going into the prison actually goes to Florida Florida. We know that because we work with people and Lavinia yes skin and then the scan goes to the person in prison and I don't see the original and if you're writing a a recommendation letter for instance. It doesn't matter that much more men when you write a a holiday card to somebody and you know what they're gonNA guys a scan of the card It it really really is Take something away honestly. Do you find that I'm not just. I'm aware of here in Philadelphia. Pennsylvania. This is actually. Justin is calling him a line. Maybe we can talk a little bit more about this as well. A prisoner Connecticut Department of collection and he declined or exploited by please contact. Ttl Customer Services at eight five five what extent to agree to accept this call press zero. She refuses call. This call is from the correction facility and subject to monitoring and recording. Thank you for using. Gtl Justin how're you doing doing well? I'm here with cates. Justin are you able to hear what kind of a little closer to the screen? Thank you for joining US Justin. We're really really sincerely appreciate you taking the time and making the effort to call in opportunity. You Bet I'm gonNA mostly take the back seat and let you have a conversation. I'm going to be here my role this points. Kinda holding the speaker next the microphone jumping here and there but for the most part. I'm going to step out and let you in on your conversation about the work. You're doing together so split sticker right well. Actually I. The very first thing I wanted to do is invite you destined to read the first of the of the two pandemic poems that we published in temperature check series last week. I'm going to do a screen share afterwards after we talk a little bit and show our audience listening in and looking in what that looks like but I thought it would be great to just open with a little literature considering Were representing America today. Which is an organization if folks don't know at the intersection of Literature. Freedom of expression human rights only feels right to kick off with Palm. Okay yes sounds good I will say Sean. It is still relatively difficult for me to understand. I picked up where everything was being said but it is a little bit of a strain. Okay I'M GONNA do my best. I'm going to get the vitamin BIT here. Hope that's a little. That's a little better moving forward. Okay Yeah and if. I'm not sure if you're having a hard time understanding I hope not but I'm wearing a mask myself right now. So very clear for me we. We can hear you just fine. And we're glad that you have a masked aware this okay. Yeah sorry go ahead. No please go ahead okay. So the problem that she's talking about is titled Lockdown Language in the World that does not yet recognised total logic. Cage.

So it's really exciting to see his work elevated through the fellowship the fellowship by the way the prison writing awards and I'll talk a little bit more about our program down the line in prison. Writing Words is solely for currently Karsh Writers and the rain for Justice. Fellowship is a very prestigious opportunity. Eight hundred people apply to across the US. It is an ecosystem of writers. Confronting mass incarceration through various mediums. And is not just people justice involvement? Certainly we have currently and formerly incarcerated to a currently incarcerated fellows. Each round justin was part of our inaugural class last year cohort but but we have people representing all different interests in the field so through that Justin one obviously the fellowship and because he's able to be in communication more than some other folks because Jay communication system which will also talk about a little bit down the line. I found that I was able to communicate with him almost as easily as somebody on the outside. Not Quite. That's not always the case. It's rarely the case in fact says through that because I'm also poet in my other life and Justin's a poet and we share a lot of the same influences reading looking at who are interested in we really developed also a friendship through the work in in a in a shared aesthetic. So it's really a pleasure to get to each your him and bring him on today and hear his thoughts. I think they eat will offer a lot of insight around a variety of topics for people who are tuning it tonight more about communicating with people who are incarcerated as do. This work is a challenge that we have as well in our work. And I'm sure you face it at least as much as we do that you know you wanNA partner with people and bring their voices into the projects And the communication is often We'll hear it here in a moment. Even when a good situation I say relatively good like Justin's where three of us spoke yesterday or speaker got an a moment Even that at such there's so many barriers in the the communication ends up being so challenging. If you say more about working with creative people on these projects yeah and I think it's part of what I will be later but certainly you know I mean in a kind of lucky way or a decision made is that we don't work with. We don't actually do classes on the inside. Where National Program? We work with individuals through the mail snail mail and occasionally through one of these kind of pay to play email systems depending on people have access to it depending on the money on etc. So right now. It's even harder because we're doing a once a week. Mail pick up because the virus at the office thankfully. My team member has a car. If he didn't we would be really at a luck and And we get a stack of mail. Uk High Foot high a week and people are requesting all kinds of support. And so obviously when you're doing an editorial process are awards that I mentioned earlier are in theology that the work is very raw and unedited. Because we can't go through a real aditorial process in the turnaround. You need a good couple months because of the snail pace all prison mail is reviewed as we're GONNA here tonight and I'm thankful in advance to everybody who sticks around embarrassed with US Justin's phone calls aren't fifteen minute increments Hang UP AND CALL BACK. The gotTa go through a whole screening. That would in a moment so people's people's lives and communication are one hundred percent red often censored it's often up to the mail room whose mail gets through or not clerk working that day Actually I I. I don't know if we can include this. I wrote a Tony. Eighteen Bed about it for the Guardian. That details of what that looks like

Containing the Coronavirus: What's the Risk to the Global Economy?

"Talking about said the risks to the global economy from the spreading coronavirus middle you're saying are you expect the likes of the tourism and services sector to be under quite significant pressure what does it mean I follow a lot of these emerging market currencies as well because that's likely to hurt a lot of their economies to if we do see some more depressed weakness for these currencies yep that's a good question I think the impact conservation currencies in the authority of the fact that there are signs of some of the pressure of the summation of Moffat's acts may be elite gauging flowing short term but I think you know the reality is that this has left all of buying on Monson dollar strength has been ignoring connected across the emerging market FX spectrum hi you wouldn't like me to currencies the on the pressure but you know as you mentioned the the the currencies of the you know more prone to supply chain pressures need lookalikes of cream on for instance huh Hey pretty hard and then you look at the boys and then you look at things like single Thailand sorry type offerings and continue out there to the overall trade implications and he just he just pulled myself on EM at a time when risk aversion is being elevated to the only copy out here is that we've already seen a lot of pain it's a question now with the U. S. starting to being Gulf more more in terms of market pressures as to whether the dollar can continue to strengthen as much as a hospital yeah the Bloomberg dollar spot index is flat this morning we saw a lot of strength in the yen but it's backed off the strongest levels Dalian for instance was one oh seven oh four this morning when I first looked at it one of seven seventy two now can you watch markets to get some wisdom more do you think that there's it's just too dissonant yeah I think I just having it is it patriotism at the moment I think the markets are in a bit of a panic mode I think we're seeing extreme moves on equities on bones on on commodities as well under nonsense okay is that there is some clues as to how much it could impact the economy but I suspect we're already in to exaggerated moves in terms of most of the markets at the moment currently we're not going to see more pain but I think the C. isn't a novel overtaking the reality in terms of what this is going to mean for the economic outlook there's no doubt that we couldn't see it more likely declining growth in Q. one I'm probably on the other hand you know does not smoke that global growth could end up in the recession this year closer to an office and handle on the global economy but you know we probably will see some recovery at least in Q. two the question is is the shape of a little device early was a hockey stick type of coverage and in your view what is it clothing at this stage it doesn't look very sharp nearly the most it could be a you or as you said the allocation type recovery I think the impact is going to be more of a longer more pronounced in the had been initially expected I want to tell us how how how you get run I just gonna say how did you gauge the economy before the coronavirus it improving or sideways yeah actually we were seeing encouraging signs of improvement and you know there were tentative signs generally that the global economy whistles on the phone according to this year we could not get a lot of the forward looking indicators or anything of the PMI I'm not was starting to be exhibited not data unfortunately not enough well paid things look obviously not much worse than they did the problem was that it was a frightening recovery from a very weak footing last year and clearly you know the global economy really wasn't in the position to take this sort of shock that exceed non about supply I guess the risks are more intense than it would have been otherwise just very very quickly about gold that drop we saw last week was that people more sort of maybe selling out to cover margin positions because gold does seem to be still some way you'd want to put your money at the moment yeah I think that's exactly right at me we will be hearing a lot of margin Coles is a lot of everything taking place in the main office philosophy generally work was something that I think I agree having colder still a safe place and I think this liquidation probably won't apply to gold as much as it does to a process Patel always great to have you inside thanks so much for being with us until the Duchess EMI G. market strategist TD securities

George Sprouse on Managing Biosolids in Uncertain Times

"Episode tackling the issue of Bio solids. It's a it's a very hot issue for the water sector right now. There's a lot of angles and sides to this topic to explore. So I'm very happy to have with me George Spouse. He is manager of Process Engineering and Research and development at the Metropolitan Council of the twin cities he is also the CO chair of West residuals and bio solids conference which is coming up March thirty first to April third in Minneapolis. George thanks for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks very much for having me absolutely So I I started out talking about. Why did by ourselves is a hot issue? Y in your mind are bio solids such an important resource for water utilities and and their communities while the bio solids really represent a kind of a key collection point or a point of concentration for the energy and nutrients moving through a community. So if you think about wastewater or just households that's kind of dispeat- dispersed throughout in a community or a collection system area and really a come together and concentrate and concentrate through through our processes until the point where. I all solids and you know. There's no point in in in that whole flow of energy nutrients where things are quite as concentrated as they are in the Bio solids. So at that point it's really easier and probably most efficient to extract every claim the energy and the nutrients that basically is cycling through a community. And so it's that extraction that allows us to kind of captured things refine them and then return them to the community and this is kind of a key key. Idea for being sustainable. You know that whole circular world rather than ask through world basically and I think bio solids are really kind of nexus point that it it allows at all to happen. Yeah and I think a challenge or maybe some marching orders for a lot of utilities or for our sector is to to do more education around that idea of the these circular nature of Bio solids the way that they are a resource that you just articulated that so well. I think we can definitely do more to try to articulate that to our to the customers out there. So could you talk As far as the Metropolitan Council and they're in the twin cities how you all use your bio solids So I work for the Met Council in our division is environmental services that we provide the way Swat. We provide the wastewater treatment and solids processing for metropolitan area of the twin cities. And we have. We have nine plants. But we've really consolidated are solids processing to wear those plants in by far far away what we do with most of our bio solids is is actually burned them in. Recover the energy directly into Steve. Zoe We have State of the art incineration and air pollution control systems. The heat off of that incineration goes directly into Steam System. That we That we used for plant purposes. He buildings in these called. Minnesota winters but also power the things in in the lab Salata steam and we have two generators so we produce Electricity and offset our electricity use by quite a bit. That's by far and away what we do with most of our bio solids but we do at two of our plants also do the the production of an agricultural material and cultural and biding used by farmers and so we. We have were involved in that as well. I think. One of the great things about this year's Residual I also conference. Is that we. We have to tourists and so one tower will be visiting our facility. The the Energy Recovery Facility here at Metro plant which is which is where we have state of the art Air Kush Two generators producing energy. But we also have associated with the conference second tour where city of Saint Cloud which is just little outside. The on. The twin cities will be offering a tour where they both highlight their land application processes. So they'll cover kind at that side of it and they're not only involved in this land application of Iowa Salads but they're also kind of cutting edge or leading way in nutrient recovery from those energy management recovery. So I think we've got you know that's how in the region that kind of covers both ways or at least two of the main ways I'll are us and so we've Adam both covered at sears a residual I'll salads tour offerings That's interesting to hear that you do that. Much energy generation with your bio solids. That's that's terrific It's it's certainly feeds into that. Circular circular notion. The theme this year for the conference is creative approaches to managing bio solids in an uncertain future. What led you all to to go with that theme really when the Co Chair Anna Monson and I were working on this or thinking about it we. We've we kind of said two things that we really wanted to hit was to help. Attendees it information would help them. Address uncertainty and and understand what the future holds for bio solids programs and then we really wanted to emphasize case studies that share success stories stories. Are you know more engaging in also more enlightening than some some more technical or dry talks in there also from the people who've lived at basically so so those were kind of the two things that I think really drove us to that idea for the team at the Conference Scher Makes a lot of sense when when this phrase uncertain future I have some ideas about what's what's meant there but I'm curious about When when you say uncertain future as it relates to bio solids. What do you mean by that by a vast majority at this point are by far and away emerging contaminants? Are you know how we will be dealing with those in? The future is certainly one of the biggest uncertainties So I think that that's kind of a key one but I think there's also a more there's also more subtle things related to uncertainty about how we will generate the resources or have the resources to actually address emerging contaminant somewhat. They cause as well as just the other unforeseen the unknown unknowns in so I by far enough away emerging contaminant sources at least in my mind in the world. I'm living in right now. The biggest unknown but this idea of like also resources and how to at will be able to actually accomplish things. It's amazing yeah absolutely. And so as we head toward the uncertain future as we grapple with emerging contaminants and resource issues. Why do you think creative approaches will be needed kind of that other part of your theme empowered? Because they're all new and so there's no there's no set solution right now so we're going to have to be creative solutions. I think that's that's kind of a big part of it. I think that I've also heard people mention a lot in. Who Deal or plan or or are involved with bio solids projects that you know nope plant or no bio solids area or no community is are not the same so each each each time. You're dealing with something. You have to be creative buffets. No situation is the same so So it's both the things are new and then the conditions of each situation are unique in. Both of those things require creative thinking. There's no. There's NO COOKIE CUTTER. There's no design guideline that. You just go away the solution in throw it on a sheet basically.

Kosher Giants Merge, Creating Possible Matzoh Monopoly

"<music> <music> ah from wonder i'm david brown and this is business worse daily on this tuesday august twentieth. The two biggest companies in the kosher food business are merging the tie up between giants keiko and manischewitz will mean the merged company will hold slightly more than fifty percents of america's twenty four billion dollar kosher market that could create a monopoly for an assesses like fell to fish in monson prompting a writer here at the daily news blog. The hustle to ask is a kosher monopoly kosher. Many shepardson keiko were icons in the jewish community both got their starts more than a century ago. The rabbi bear manischewitz founded his company in cincinnati in eighteen eighty eight to make macho the unleavened bread that jews eat during passover. The lithuanian-american rabbi was an innovator he took what had traditionally been around handmade bread and began making with machines and square both changes inches that kosher traditionalist at first resisted but his matsu caught on so too did manischewitz wine a cheap cloying drink that nonetheless this is standard at most passover sater's the company thrived over the years and expanded its offerings to include many other kosher foods from gal to fish to borscht it went public public in nineteen twenty three but was sold to a private equity firm in nineteen ninety manischewitz has changed hands many times since then and sold off pieces of it's kosher empire notably. It's manischewitz wine which the family sold in nineteen eighty seven keiko has both an equally storied history and an ever increasing share of the rapidly growing kosher market ho cost survivor eugene herzog who came to america in nineteen forty-eight began making kosher wine ten years later he drew on his family's family's ancestral winemaking tradition which began in the mid nineteenth century when the family supplied wine to the emperor franz joseph of the austro-hungarian empire like manischewitz cheviots the herzog's built their wine and food empire over the years the company now distributes about one hundred fifty different brands from soups tomato but it could never topple manischewitz position as the preeminent matsu maker it did however win the vast market for kosher grape juice which plays a significant role in orthodox doc families a few years ago manischewitz attempted to break keiko's monolithic hold on the great juice business by pairing with cheaper kosher certified version of welches grape grape juice but it didn't catch on terms of the agreement and manage shiva's motivation for selling were public at the time of production but business has become much more competitive over the years as now more than eight hundred thousand foods from hershey's chocolate to trader. Joe's tuna have have been certified as kosher with many more choices available manischewitz sales have been declining one question is whether kosher prices will increase under the merged company kosher food already costs more than non-kosher items but an expert quoted in the times says no keiko was a family business. He said sensitive sensitive to the market besides mana schevitz likely learned its lesson about overreaching long ago in nineteen ninety one hundred different management the company paid a one million in dollar penalty for manipulating the massive matsu market meeting kosher dairy on new york's lower east side leaders of manischewitz and two other companies notably not keiko had agreed to fix passover matsu prices. Surely that wasn't a step toward sacred seder from wondering this business wars daily. If you like our take his second give it a five star rating in a review on apple podcasts. It is the number one way other listeners buying this affects. I'm david brown back with you tomorrow.

"That it it's a real visionary right there This is really you're looking at remote islands where these cats are invasive species and they're killing natural species where there are a lot of undiscovered animals out there, and they're getting rid of them. And so this is about conservation. It's still sad though killed a little kitties. That's it says cats and dogs. Yes. All you're focusing on is the cats. Well, I mean, I think if a feral dog more like a wolf, and you know, they're causing problem. They gotta go. But if it's cat. Chained because you think you could tame I'd probably could drop me into these islands. I'll take care of them. They brought a cat in to the radio station the other day as part of a program on another station. But then this cat's freak it out in the elevator. You couldn't call them that one down. Why I wasn't given the opportunity the guy holding the kitty was kind of a jerk you went down and try to pet it. And then it jumped up on the console the front desk. Now, I followed her as she jumped up, and then I pet her while she was on the front desk, and she was very nice. I didn't call them the cat down. I was somewhat disappointed because you are known as the cat whisper. She also has harness on cats. Don't like that. Well, if you're going to get your picture taken you're going to be taken in somewhere the guy tried to carry the cat up. Did you hear him talking about lost the pint of blood because the cat scratching the crap out of his arms? In a cat carrier. I think he'd put the harness on after he got. That's no good. Yeah. Freaking catch, man. I like some fats. I love my cats. That's good. Didn't a cat yours caused you to break a hip. Yes. That's that happened. Well, because the cat did what a cat does a cat gotta miles. Oh stretch of going walking into the kitchen with the Monson its mouth looks at me drops the mouse on the floor and walks away.

I'm doing great excellent. You know, it's funny this week. I heard I don't know if you heard this. But. Greg Williams who to me. Why don't really work in Cleveland locally in the week? And I have no desire for Greg Williams to remain the long-term coach Gregg Williams. I think he's about as old school is old school gets and he referred to some advanced analytics this week. And I almost was brought to tears Sam because well, I think I think that all sports need to have a good balance between old school scouting and new school analytics you'll so many old school football guys are so hesitant look where we are in baseball. Now. Right. The sport is completely run. Everybody has an analytics department in basketball and football is dragging their feet a little bit more in some organizations, but the here an old school coach like Greg Williams referred to some advanced analytics. That was that was wild for me to hear it must have. I don't know if you heard it. But it probably would've made you happy. If you did. Yeah. I think you're right football is behind baseball. And how that kind of stuff is gone, but everybody understands that it can help you how you present it to all of these people know, so head coaches are often the last guy to get on board. But it's because you need to present it to them in in the right away. Now, there's a ton of ways that say the PS database can help is those guys. But if you come to them initially where you know, something they don't wanna hear they're not going to buy. But if you immediately show them something, you know, a fancy pretty grasp the chosen exactly what they've been saying for years, suddenly they're all on board. So I think a lot of teams the league you're just starting to sort of see this time where the analytics guys or people that have been using the stuff within the Bill. Building for years are finally starting to figure out how to present it to coaches added presented to general manager is and you know, the guys bad again in front of the media. And that's when you're starting to see this filter out. I think it's been used a lot within the building for years already. But now we're starting to see those guys use it on a daily basis and get the headline stuff sent to them in a way that they're they're much more comfortable with gesturing at an and actually taking it on board. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analysts Sam. Baker Mayfield has had a tremendous season. As a rookie as put up some big old school numbers if you will. But when when you went from a pro football, focus perspective when you guys run the numbers on what he's done. How would how does he great out compared to some other rookie quarterback's of the past? Yeah. I think you do need to go to quarterbacks with a pass because he hadn't shoulders above any other rookie season right now. He's a top ten grade quarterback in the NFL. He's tense overall. Just one physician behind Russell Wilson. So you're already talking about it really really well graded player right off the five. And obviously pro football focus was very high invade your Mayfield coming out were the guy is the winter by for him saying that he was the best prospect in this draft in it really wasn't close to the next guy. I think so far. That's that is being born out. We have seen better performances in the past rookies. I think that twenty twelve season was a pretty incredible year for rookie performances. Obviously it didn't last because RG three in particular had a phenomenal season that year, and then tours and really hasn't been the same player since. But you know, Baker Mayfield is looking as good as we've seen any rookie quarterback. Look probably dating by twenty twelve season. We're seeing some really impressive play from him. And I think his play generally has been better than even the statistics suggest because you had one of the highest rates in the NFL right five and drop rates. And unlike most of the times when a receiver drops the ball, it's an incomplete passes. It's not doing that much damage to your passer rating, or whatever but Baker mayfield's have multiple assets that have been hit his receivers and my hands and ended up as interceptions. So those are taking a sledgehammer to operating over the course of the season. It's ninety three. Point four right now. And this is a season where passing is exploded operating ninety three point four is nice great at the moment. But it's his performance has been way better than that. We're talking with Sam Monson lead analyst pro football, focus Sam, let's talk about another rookie and that saquon Barkley who probably be battling Baker Mayfield for rookie of the year. From an offensive standpoint. There's been other good rookie running back but saquon Barkley make over two thousand total yards this season. How does he compare to Todd Gurley Leonard four nets and some of the other big rookie seasons from running backs? Yeah. I mean saquon Barkley just moved into first edition CFS running back rankings. He's the the number one guy right now through the through part of the season. He's been incredible. He's been everything that everybody who was championing him saying he would be coming out. I think he's been better than we thought. He might be there. The idea that he was a perfect running back prospect that don't think really holds up work holes in his game in particular. This tendency to to be a bit. Reggie Bush in terms of wanting to balance everything outside to look for that clay, but he's gotten a lot better in his first year at not doing that at taking ugly yards when they're there. And that's all there to be had. And it's still maximizing goes explosive plays getting huge games. Those are there. So he has been fantastic. I think again he's been as good as any rookie running back the receipt for a number of years. Really? He's I guess he's played as well. As Alvin Kamara did last year as a rookie on he's done more fulltime base. So he already has you know, two hundred more snaps than Kamara managed all last season playing that same kind of rate is Amari Cooper. Has memorial Cooper's play been much better. Or is just a the players around him made him much better. I think it's a bit of both, you know, playing wide receiver it so difficult to play. Well, if the ball isn't coming in your direction off the ball is coming in your direction in attachable manner. Having you can do about it. There's only so much fancy route running against air. You can do if the ball isn't coming your way. So I think we're seeing Amari Cooper was always a quality route runaround player that would get consistently open. And now we're seeing what happens when you target that guy. He's still a very good player and I play put up big numbers. And obviously, that's that's meaning that his greatest better because he's being given the ball and that talent is being maximized. So you know, I think that that was always there that that talent that play was always inherited his game. Even in Oakland. The raiders just weren't making use of it. We're talking with Sam Monson pro football focus lead analyst. Sam. I know you guys today had an article about projecting Cuyler Murray's pro potential. I'm curious because obviously he's a top ten pick and major league baseball. He's giving compared to Ricky Henderson. He signed a four and a half million dollar bonus. There would have to give it back obviously at a even a better year than Baker Mayfield did this past year in college, which is hard to believe. But obviously, you know, people make a thing about the thing about Baker mayfield's hike, which I thought was over rated. But obviously calamari isn't even close those big as as Baker Mayfield. A what is his potential d do you think he could be a good NFL quarterback? I think he could be, you know, you're right people that the highest the big question Mark because people did make an issue out of Baker Mayfield. Tighter on Baker Mayfield is short for an NFL quarterback. But not, you know, it's not unprecedented. We've seen quarterbacks Baker Mayfield type successful in the past. They're not obviously, not as many as there are as you know, six with three quarterbacks, but those guys have existed and they've been good in the past. I don't I don't know that we've ever seen quarterback that is Kyla Murray's Hite house significant success at the end up, right? You know, he is going to be when we get the official number on him. If it ever gets that far he's going to be significantly shorter than even a guy like Russell Wilson. And you would be in legitimately uncharted territory. When it comes to that. Now, if you're going to do that, you have to be there has to be something else to say, well, okay. That's not going to be a problem because of this and his grading has been incredible. His is great this season at Oklahoma has been basically everything is as as good. As Baker mayfield's grade had been on that was the best we've ever seen from a quarterback, right? The best seasons we've ever seen at college with one of his own. So he has a level of the best play. We've ever seen coming out of college from a college quarterback. And we've been doing this going back to two thousand fourteen but we've seen some pretty good quarterbacks over that's fine. You know, we went back, and we also graded James Winstons freshman seasons. We have got Carson Wentz you got Jared Goff. We've got right. And they got all these guys and Carl Amari stacks up to those guys. Sorry.
