"Valley homerun welcome. The Passion Project continues. My name is remedy Robinson. I'm a linguist author and a crossword puzzle enthusiast and this. This is an appreciation. This is an exploration linguistics. Language and gorgeous wordplay as framed by the pill is poetry of the Modern Day. Master Elvis Costello today slow drag is with tart from when I was cruel released in two thousand and two the songwriting is credited to Elvis Costello. It's a worldly tour of opposites.

Sharp way that once again delights the literary palate here silver trumpets will trill in the Arabic streets of Seville oranges rolling the Gutter and you pick them up and pull back the skin to read through within as is the calling Carter Mr Castillo. There is a lot to unpack in this first verse alone. Let's start with the Hama phone. The fantastic Elvis Costello wikipedia for Tart has the first word spelled here H. E. A. R. When expect silver trumpets will trill here. H. e. r. e. especially given that the next line references. A place here in Seville is where you can hear. Silver trumpets has a trim both definitions at their own texture of sight and sound. According to the Vienna Symphonic Library a trumpet trill is quote one of the less refined techniques and is therefore rarely used and it sounds something like this. Of course Avila's a city in the south part of Spain contained. Within that city is the Arab Seville an erstwhile capital to an ancient metropolis. The name of which I'm not even going to try to attempt to pronounce it is said that one of the most brilliant eras of Seville took place there.

The best known bitter orange variety includes one called. Get this Seville. Is this a well researched reference? Or is it a spooky piece of serendipity? I think I'm fine with that either way.

"Remedy Robinson. I'm a linguist authored. A dedicated fan and this isn't appreciation. This is an exploration of linguistics. Clever word play and tracing the seeds of true brilliance is framed by the perilous poetry. In the Modern Day. Master Elvis Costello. Today's slow drag is with miracle man for my aim is true released in nineteen seventy seven. The songwriting is credited to the shiny. New moniker Castillo. The name was said to be the brainchild of his manager. I tend to believe it but it's still wonder what other names were in contention. Frank perhaps I imagine there were many. Take Miracle Man for instance. It's a song that reportedly started as baseball heroes and then went through a few revisions before miracle-man as we have come to know it slotted right after welcome to the working week on Mr Costello's debut album who wants to be baseball hero out in the Centerfield son sitting on the edge of a hometown ledge always waiting for that final run as the chorus to baseball heroes. There's a link to the full lyrics of baseball heroes and a short explanation of it in the show notes. It's from the dynamite Castillo wicky page. It's a wealth of information that I can't say enough. Good things about repeating that number. Keep on waving your hand but you know that walking on the water won't make you a miracle. Man This is the core is found on the flip city version of Miracle Man. No more baseball talk in this version. Just two guarded mention of romantic tore a mile. But even then it's not explicit. The first first begins. Let's take a look at the situation in size it up right from the start. We've been together just a little too long for a little bit of losing to tear us apart. What can you do to amuse me? I heard the lady cry. Well I never thought that so much trouble was resting on my my job there. It is now it's starting to sound familiar. So let's go into the opening of what we all know and love. You never asked me what I wanted. You only ask me why I never thought them. So much. Trouble was resting on my reply. I could say it was the nights when I was lonely and you were the only one who talk. I could tell you that a like your sensitivity when you know. It's the way that you walk instead of relying on. Preamble like that found in the first two versions. This version comes into the room. Striding with purpose it throws itself right into the action the rhyming pair of lonely insensitivity complements the structure of this. I will starting with the A of why in reply than moving to a staggered. Ab structure with talk and walk breaking up the very smart slant. Rhyme of lonely insensitivity. What do you have to say that? There's always someone who can do better than I can. But don't you think that I know that walking on the water won't make me a miracle man of these three versions? It's this final version with the first person is more overtly used. It's a small detail. Perhaps but as I've mentioned Mr Castillo's ability to capture relations of the outside world as opposed to simply reporting. His immediate introspective joys. Sorrows is a lesson to all aspiring poets and a testament to his continued ability to manufacture unique sound gapes. That never seemed to get old or sound trite. Babies gotTa have the things she wants. You know she's gotTa have the thing she allows. She's got a ten inch. Bamboo cigarette holder and her black Peyton. Leather gloves am doing everything. Just trying to pleaser even crawling around on all fours I thought by now it was gonna be easy but she's still seems to want for more in baseball. Heroes Mention is made of lucky strike cigarettes and while not mentioned outright. There isn't a theory of understanding of baseball gloves so to see this reworking of these seemingly disparate themes is a great example of a nimble mind. I hear they're giving you a bad reputation. Just because you've never been denied you try to set. You've done it all before being. You know that you just get tired. Everybody loves you so much girl. I just don't know how you stay on the strain on the one who's here tonight and I don't WanNa do it all in vain. The exploration of a woman that might be desirable yet is somehow difficult remains articulate in enticing. Get it never dips into objectification or sexism. It's a picture of strain of exotic style of how nothing could ever be enough. Take a listen to this. Alternate Third Verse. Notice how closely it follows. Same rhymes game but has a completely different meaning. You know seven men that want to be monkeys and six that never get denied and five. That say they've done it all before and four that say they're just tired. And three of the handsomeness men in the country and to that can do it again and again. But I'm the one who's here tonight and I don't WanNa do it all in vain. All of these disparate in preceding versions of miracle-man contributed in a positive way to the finished product. I think going through their timeline also helps to highlight. How making something precious is really just a detriment. Oh writers have words that we think we'd fight to the death for but if we let go just a little bit maybe just maybe something better will come along. All of Mr Custos versions of this piece have merit baseball. Heroes has a sweet charm to it quote. Yeah the ball went up and it didn't come back. They were sitting by the side of the track. Somebody said did you see that? But then the early city version features of fair amount of self deprecation as in. They laughed at me standing in disgrace. I put my best foot forward than I fell on. My face was thankfully tempered in the final version to a more palatable amount of self loathing crawling around on all fours is debasing but not a failing in itself. But don't you think I know that walking on the water won't make me a miracle man this shifts from a personal failing to unreasonable expectations and it does so beautifully and us. A Living Legend was christened and sent out into Laurel again. This has been a slow drag with miracle man from nineteen seventy seven. Might aim is true. It was the third or so recorded iteration of a song that started as an amish. To his father's love of all things American baseball as its embodiment and then shifted into the Zeitgeist of the three minute pop song with all the love rejection and intrigue worthy of airplane. And that's it for today. Slow drag my friend. Thank you for listening. I highly recommend going back and listening to episode twenty two or.

The New York Daily News wrote that Anna charged that her husband is a member of the crime syndicate is the real owner of four New York nightclubs and a couple all dog tracks and gets kickbacks from New Jersey peers.

"It? The city had an ordinance that stipulated that if you were lost property claim it you had to prove your loss of property and you also had to show lawful title as well.

This is America. It's against the law. Well. I heard the most recent news about how session says it's okay for people to confiscate money and goods and valuables from people's that they think committed a crime without actually prosecuting and being convicted of a crime. Frank Castillo when he went to court did he did he get his money back? So in the middle of this court case the federal government stepped in and filed lanes on it for the twenty seven thousand two hundred dollars for taxes. Yeah. So I don't think he got it back. And neither did the police pension fund. Went to the federal government's pension fund. So in the end, they had a jury trial jury awarded him the money back, but the government had I think twenty two thousand dollars lanes on it. They took their money, then he gave the cabdriver three thousand dollars. So pretty, but he lost it all. In a couple of thousand dollars. He probably had a pain the Terni. Right. Eight and end up with anything. Really? But it was the principal thing is what he always said. Now, I'm just looking here at this where he goes off to the kief offer hearings when asked by the committee, what have you done for your country?

So we look forward to that. And we thank Frank Frank Petras Sinoe, of course for bringing because stuff host daughter, Lucas stella's daughter to my. Attention. And I think it would be a lot of fun and Frank were always thinking via and wish you and your family the very best of the holiday season. Same thing for Anthony sin Q, if you don't mind me wishing the best of the holiday season to two very good friends. One eight seven seven three three seven six six six six. We're going to get right to the telephone calls Nathan evolved day now John Hayman, then I'll mention this. And then we'll get to the calls. I know people are waiting John Hayman earlier in the evening was tweeting out. And I happened to see a little bit of him on the major league baseball network. Nathan all the and the Boston Red Sox are in serious discussions about four years and seventeen million per season. So that's where we are with Nathan evolved in the Boston Red Sox in the number of Yankee fans with the hot stove. With a warning to see maybe Nathan of all coming back to the Bronx. It looks as though something may happen and berry soon whether Boston Red Sox again from John Hayman, four years seventeen million in serious stocks. Nothing official but in serious talks. All right to the phones we go and Corey is calling from a now and you're leading off Corey. Happy Hannukah, my friend, happy Hannukah and same to you. Happy holiday season to you, and yours as we say what's going on just wanted to say, I'm a big Yankee fan. But I listen to all the shows. I wasn't gonna fan. Sure. Everybody gets crazy about. Fan the Yankees not spending money while the winter meetings didn't even start yet. And he hasn't even listen. Let's wait to see what come data these meetings. Let's wait to see what Cashman has if he doesn't do anything. Then then we can we can not praise him for you know, the things that they said they were going to do now that they have the money to spend. No, they're going to spend it, and they're going to do it to see. Here's the thing. I mean doesn't have to be done. Now. I mean, the winter meetings don't even start until Sunday. So even after the winter meetings right now, the Yankees, and you can rest assured Corey that you will pick up another starter. Now, J hap- isn't as sexy as a kluber caress go. I'm just saying already the bottom line is that the Yankees are biding their time working on what? They are working on and we'll make their moves and spend their money, and of course, because like a day has gone by what is it? It's like twenty four hours forty eight hours is gone by the haven't signed anyone. What is it? What it is is December five about to be December six this season doesn't start tomorrow. And either Harper or Machado Warner the two you gotta believe is coming to the Bronx and another starter. I think that's also fair to he wanted. He wanted to get to new guys got Paxton. And maybe Jay hap- is going to be the the one we'll see. But there are moves to be made. And Cashman will be making the moves that we won't have to worry. If you're a Yankee fan about the money Carl is calling from Staten Island, Carl you're on the fan. What's going on? Happy holidays to you Carl for sure. Just want to talk a little bit about the Mets. I liked the aggressiveness. The win now attitude. I like it. I don't really mind the casino and the ideal think we might have a little too much for them. But I'm not mad at it. Because listen, I know they talked about this nineteen year old kid as potentially, you know, a lot of potential lot of high upside I'm old enough to remember, the Alex of show is the pulse. Wilson Martinez list goes on of all those guys that was supposed to be, you know, great play nothing. The only thing. I don't like hearing is that they're talking about. Maybe trading Conforto for for renewal. I mean, I dunno schmooze. I think that would be a big mistake. Trading. Conforto. You have to give up one of them. I give up Nimmo. But definitely. Think about Conforto. Yeah. Same here. Well, here we don't think it's gonna happen. They may not even trade him at all you have to have somebody that is a major league caliber on that team. But we listen, and I think there are going to be a number of teams going after him with maybe arguably a little bit more than just either Nimmo or resort or Conforto. And you can't deal away a resort yo, and they may be asking for a resort area was well as an Emo Conforto couldn't afford. We know it's been well chronicled. Well joked about. Conforto God awful season until September nine home runs. Twenty nine nine home runs twenty nine. Our be is in the mother September. All we all know that. But the bottom line is. I mean, maybe if he can stay healthy and get off to a decent start. You're talking at three hundred hitter. I mean, we know from what Conforto can do would hate to see him going. If you were to trade Conforto. You gotta go after say a Harper. That's not gonna happen. Harper or Machado. I'm I'm thinking Machado is gonna end up with the Yankees harbor is gonna end up with Philadelphia. We take a quick break. And then we still have an hour forty five to get together and do a little schmooze with the hot stove or talk. Giants will talk jets..

Well, let's put the conspiracy theories to rest his Sam darnold really hurt. Yes here. No man on the grassy knoll. Quite understand where people came up with the conspiracy theory because. Defense saying they could bench him. I don't think they fear of backlash or anything like that. And it's not like baseball where if you have a picture who's struggling, especially mentally, you say that shoulder inflammation? And we're gonna put him on the DL for ten days. Oh, no. Older inflammation. They they come up with that. And you can say, oh that's a fake injury. Well, they clear a roster spot in that mode. Aren't that roster spot here? There's nothing just unless they fear some public backlash by benching Sam, but I sure you not care any of us. Thank you. Well, here's the other conspiracy theory that I'm hearing talked about well, gee, mccown comes in and win this game, which he should. And then somehow they beat New England, which you never know. How do you put Sam darnold back in? You gotta go with mccown. No, I I don't see that to you. No, I don't see. I think people the point there. I think you can make that argument if it's about winning games two games and saying look good in a few weeks. So you can make that argument, but shot that down pretty hard. This week when he said, you know, SAM's our quarterback, he's a starter matter. What happens when he's healthy starting quarterback? So. And I'm not even sure if Josh will get two games from what I've been hearing is not all that bad and they're optimistic that that Sam to play against the patriots. So you may not even get there. You know to that controversy. But clearly this season has been about Sam darnold. The jets won't say the optically, you know, what this is about developing him and leaving Josh mccown and after the end of the season is not going to help that process. Yeah. I mean, if if they really were serious about winning now McGowan is a much more developed quarterback than darnold anyway. So they could have started from day one. Start at the beginning of the season at that. Was that was the issue, you know, but it was. This is always about getting Sam know, there's experience and kind of working out those Kingston his rookie year. And then hoping he takes leap in your too. We did talk about this a bit last week. But I think that maybe a week on the bench it will benefit Sam darnold. He'll get to see things that maybe you don't see when you're playing. You'll get to see how veteran experiences certain things, and it might actually be a good learning experience for him. Yeah. I think it could I wasn't favorite sitting in Allison people after the game. I thought they should keep playing him. And let him play through the stuff has happened in the jury. I don't think it's the worst thing in the world for him to sit and watch per week. He might be able to you know, gain something from being on the sideline and kind of being with Jeremy Bates for a whole game. And seeing how Josh does things in action. That could benefit him. I could see that argument is Bates in your opinion and the guy to develop darnold, you know, the game plans the execution everything last week. Certainly I mean, you know, we watched that game. It was one of the worst games. I think I've ever seen. It was a pain to watch Bates the guy or do you think it's just baby steps, I know dunno last weeks have not been good. I've got throw the Chicago game in their house to watch for the jets fan. Lapping? You know, I don't wanna say he's not the guy because what's difficult years. He hasn't had his top receivers at one hundred percent, right. The two weeks ago. There was no Ravi Anderson. No Quincy last week. They were in there. But I'm not sure that those guys were on your show, especially Robbie didn't look like himself. And now he's not playing tomorrow working with ninety nine. On the other side. I would like to see some creativity from knowing that you don't have the best wide receivers in the NFL. You're to get the running back more the tight anymore involved. How about a trick play? The last week like how about a trick like something to kind of offense. 'cause right now. They've just been sputtering. Stalled. So maybe something that can just give us a spark. Now, Josh might be able to give that spark now this week. But so I haven't loved what I've seen from base at the same time Khartoum and write him off because of what he's working with right now. Yeah. And you know, the offensive line. I mean, obviously, we pointed to that with the giants so much and with the jets now, and, you know, the whole situation with the center, and I know he he defended that well, you know, he was hurt and all of that. But you know, when you saw it happen and just start to happen this week. It was happening in the past. Why did it take so long to make the move? I don't know. I don't know if indefensible really that was one me, you know, watching the tape again, it started really at the end of the first half drive. He had some bad snaps. It really unraveled in the second half. But you don't even see watching on TV. I'm sure I could see it in the first box. I gotta get outta here. Even the snap that went past Sam that got past them. You know, if you remember that land right over right shoulder. Molded down the field in San threw it away. So it wasn't like it was hard to see. And the is there a drop off from Spencer long. John Harrison, blocking wise. Yeah. Probably there there is by John Harrison played against Chicago. And I thought he did okay. In that game. I don't think it's like a disaster to have him in the game. So I I didn't understand that at all. Sometimes it can be really stubborn. You know, one thing I learned about him. Covering him for four years. Now, he does not make changes quickly. I was trying to think this week. And how many times I've seen him bencher player in the middle of the game performance. And I could come up with like to God. I remember it in order to cornerback young Cornerbacks benched at one time. But that's about it. You remember even when Rivas was struggling so mightily people were saying, why aren't you? Again, when states had his struggle. He didn't mention he took a long time and the bench. So he's not a guy. That polls buyers quickly and it really hurt them badly in Miami. And it could hurt him. Country. Yeah. I have not been on board with. Okay, we gotta get rid of bowls all year. But after that Miami game, you know, and people were tweeting and everything about it. And I say, well, you know, what? Based on what we've seen so far. I can't give him a vote of confidence. And right now everything about the microscope right now, they're sending weeks left him kind of make this decision. So everything he does is under the microscope and Christopher Johnson's watching that game. Like the rest of us. I'm sure he could see that snaps. You know, what he was thinking about them not pulling him? And I wonder what answer Todd gave him because they talked about the game the following day or whatever break it down. And I'm sure he had questions about why spent a long one I'm Paul than just really right now. Like, I said under the microscope seasons. Get hotter. And I think somehow lose tomorrow, Richard. Then we're talking white white hot coaching. Yeah. Yeah. No hiding with the by even now another thing that. Scott got on. And I have to tend to agree with him. About bowls is after the game usually post comments. I don't put too much in. But when he says, well, the defense didn't get a turnover. It's like, we're all. The defense gave up six points from the the seven pick six they had so many three and outs. They did their job. And I'm wondering if the defense here's that and goes come on. You just threw us under the bus. Yeah. I know he doing their offense has been so terrible all day long back. I don't think he wanted to say what are you on the stock? You know, that's why we lost. He was trying to find some way to say this was a team mock, he shouldn't he shouldn't have gone turnover ridiculous. The dolphins were three of sixteen on third down in that game. You know, the defense play great six points. Like you said and three of those points where after interception by darnold that gave them pretty good field position. So it was it was a silly thing to say I get where he was going in say with the team lost. But I I do think immediately after the game. The players were probably a little annoying. I think they got over it though. I don't think it was that big a deal in a long term. But probably something he shouldn't have said. Well, you know, typified was the curse play where he's outta bass. Yeah. I mean, there's a veteran receiver you're in a game that you're competitive. He's still could win the game. And you're driving down the field, and you you can't see the sideline amended that to me is kind of inexplicable. Yeah. Especially from player like curse, very reliable smart football player. You know? That's why Jamaica fight as long as he has. He's not the most dynamic wide receiver in the NFL. But he's a smart guy runs. Really good rouse. He gets open. And that's why he's lasted. So that was a really characteristic for him. He had a bad game. He had a drop when they were down at twenty at one point. He dropped the ball a little screen pass. He dropped and. Across the mail. And maybe he should've caught he you know, he ended up to this week. He said he wasn't happy with the way he played actually wrote something for tomorrow. Where talk to him about it. And he said he hasn't felt like himself this year. But he. He kinda read you hit the reset button. And he feel like he's ready now these going to you know, finish strong the season. But yeah. Accepting out of bounds was not a good good play by him at all. Yeah. Well, I mean if you look at the dolphins record you can say, well, maybe they're not a bad team. There are mediocre team and Osweiler at least is an experienced quarterback. But when you look at buffalo with their quarterback, they're playing that that just that should be in the w column, and if it doesn't go their way, I agree with you that that seat is going to be so white hot. I don't see Chris Johnson do anything in the middle of the season. But boy, it's gonna take a near miracle to save the job if they lose tomorrow. Yeah. I agree with you. I don't think you're going to be fired Monday morning, but the station all day Monday. That's what they're talking about. All right. File, you know, you're right. This is a must win for them. They Buffalo's defense is pretty good there. Number three in the NFL. But their offices, just historically bad. Like they are on track to set records. They have many picks. Sixers touchdown passes. That's hard to do. So, you know, we don't know. Quarterback is Peterman. It'd be it could be. Matt barkley. I don't think it really matters. You know, the jets. Gets even should dominate this game. And I think the death offense look foods from having more. So I do think they win this game. But if they don't give me a long long long by week, and you know, you can't just throw all of this on bowls either you have to look at the trades the draft picks, I mean hackenberg. Now is going to play in this new league. Whatever that is it plays in February. I guess so that was a big boo, boo. But you gotta look at his performance. And you can't be too thrilled after four years. Yeah. He has. You know? And I think he's done well in the first round Jamal Adams, look like a really good player Lennon, good Claire. I think this year's job has a lot of potential with Harnden, and obviously Donald. But the middle round he's got a lot and boy took to receive right last year. Neither one of them on the roster right now. And that's a position has been a problem in the last few weeks, they can use those receivers right now and it didn't pan out. And I'll throw on you know, we we only got on coach and GM the players have to say some to some of these fires just have now played well this season under a tree teased. And I think they said we can't fire all the players, right? So he fire the coach. But I do think there is sometimes we overlook that the execution by some of these guys has not been good this year. And that's really really hurt the jets. Yeah. You can coach him up till doomsday. But if they don't perform on the field. What are you gonna do? Okay. We're out of time. But Brian, thank you. And we shall see during the bye week how things shake out. All right, which it sounds good. Brian Costello from the New York Post. Talking jets football.

"Hundred and fifty dollar deposit match on your first deposit. Mr castillo. How are you, sir? I'm good, Richard. How're you doing pretty good? Pretty good. Well. I'm sure you've dissecting Thursday night's loss to the Cleveland Browns, many many times and are probably tired of it. But let's go over a few things game plan to conservative as a lot of people have posited. What do you think? Know, I don't have a problem with them coming out without approach because Greg Williams is usually very aggressive. They had Myles Garrett. So I was okay with them coming out trying to kind of feel things out. But I fought in the second quarter. They got things going. Remember those couple of Dr really running the ball. Well, getting you know Powell and Croat we're getting fourteen yards twelve yard then you can loosen up the game plan because now you're having some running success. Why not try a play action pass down? Why not just? And doing some things some deep shot out here. And there I they stayed with the game plan too long. I might sound weird. But I thought they could've adjusted to what the Browns were doing. I really think if you look at the Browns didn't blitz him as much as we thought they they played a lot of coverage. They were dropping people back. So you know, the short screens did work yet. You'd have to say that I was getting fifteen yards and sixteen yards on his. But. Next in a few deep shots there and tried to test Cleveland secondary a little bit more than they did. And when the run game was succeeding, especially with Bilal Paula going to the left, you would think they could do some play action off that because they'd obviously have to honor that and then take a couple of shots down the field, right or or bootleg with with darnold. The other way. The and and. Was it was really nice opportunity that because they were running the ball well to do something and they did in the second half. They didn't do much. They stuck with these short pass game too long. I thought and didn't Nixon enough speed shops. And it's funny because Jeremy Bates a couple of weeks ago, and we talked our take shots. We're take our swings. How he said it, but you know, the bat never left the shoulder on Thursday night. Well, that's something that that under bowls. They have been critiqued a lot for in that they don't make adjustments as much as maybe they should is that valid that. They see some things that aren't working don't change it at the half or later in the game. Although obviously in the Detroit game they came out gangbusters with thirty one points. Yeah. But I mean that was kind of freakish. There was a punt return. It's not like they came out offensively late in the world on fire in the second half. But yeah, it's a hard thing to measure, but typically at a balls they have not been a good third quarter team. You're Detroit, obviously, the exception. So that's why that criticism is how come I really thought Thursday night. I didn't see any adjustment to the Browns adjustment. Basically. Brian. You know, we got bowls after the game taking total responsibility for everything. And then yesterday. Hey, the penalties aren't on the coaches there on the players. Yeah. And you know to me, okay. We all know penalties are bad. We don't like penalties especially at crucial times. The key is finding a way to keep this from happening and push ups. Don't seem to be working. No, no, I agree. So so is it on the coach unlocked this thing? I mean, you're not going to eliminate penalties altogether. But unlock it and figure out a way to keep these things from happening penalties. Yes. And I think van crow tonight show disrespect, I coach among other people. You know, I just don't think if you had any respect or fear of the repercussions from what your coach is going to. Thank you would do that. I just did that to me. This guy doesn't think you're gonna get tiny tiny traveling. I don't really care. You know, holding penalties happen oxides penalties kind of happen. The defensive of holding calls that we keep seeing you know, Moore's clayborn on the two points. I you know, the huge on the other night last week against Miami. There were two that kept drives going those. I think are techniques things, and it gets have not been able to solve them a huge problem last year bus describing has been a problem with that Claiborne is not hanging problem with that. I know last year they tried practicing with DV, holy tennis balls in our hands. So they couldn't grab the wide receiver. He's nothing seems to be working there. It's not like right now. They're getting twelve penalties game. They're getting just getting like monster how she critical moments. So, you know, I don't think it's completely on the coaches it's on the players too. But it's not not totally on apply. Todd misspoke yesterday when he said, yeah that that was a player problem and not a coaching problem. The season obviously started out with such promise. And then you you look now and you got Jacksonville. And I don't really see a way for the jets to win that game. Hopefully, they'll surprise me. But I'm looking at the schedule and and up until they hit buffalo on November eleventh. This team could be with one victory of up until. Yeah. I mean, there's always surprises on the schedule. That's why the NFL stunned. Right. He knew results wouldn't be as entertaining as it is. There's always going to be games that they win. The jets beat Jacksonville last year, albeit it was at home, but they did beat them last year. They beat the chiefs at home last year. They're going to win in that. You are like oh my God. Check coming especially after Jacksonville. They have three home games. You know? And I I don't know how good the Broncos are on the colts. Are the Viking look pretty good? So I think they're gonna win some games here. I don't think they'll be one one wing. But it's a challenging schedule. And the problem might be when we get to the end of the year. You look back at games like Cleveland, why you gotta fourteen lead and blew it or them having a dolphins at home in week two. When you lost that game. They might look back at those. You know, missing opportunities that could have helped them, you know, I get a better record and possibly contend for the play offs or something like that. So we could be talking about these two weeks. Three losses later in the season. Yeah. And you never know how the season is gonna shake out. You may be happy. You got those losses because it gives you a better traffic that certainly would not vote very well for Todd Bowles if that were to happen. I would think now, and I think, you know, my colleague Caroline the post on, you know, put them on blasts pretty good after that game. I think Todd every time they lose a game. Like that people are going to be calling for Todd's head. That's herat. He's an ear made the playoffs. So I think there's gonna be a lot of pressure on the jets could change if the season doesn't go. Well, I think fancy the the game press conferences, and they don't see a lot of passion there. However, you know, we're told from people inside that, you know, Todd Bowles we'll get in somebody's face and Todd Bowles is not a yeller and screamer. But that he's not a soft touch the way he comes off in the press conferences. Yeah. And the ER extreme-right times, I just think he I think he miscalculate that the public at his job. I thought that prolong time I thought I needed the same made the same mistake when he's at the jets think these guys in their minds all I have to do is win football games and nothing else matters to exterior. That's correct. But there's a way to kind of help yourself if you're not winning games in this town, and that's the public perception how you present yourself and press conferences, and how you kind of handle the media because the spotlight is great here in other towns. And I think, you know, I think Terry Collins was the guy who did a great job with the Mets in the way, he dealt with the media and kind of gave the fans a message, and he bought himself some time to doesn't lean years wrecks. Of course is another example where the call to fire axe took a while longer than than maybe they should have because I two years, but also because of the way. Doc himself publicly and how popular he was at the fans. I thought I think all along kind of miscalculated how important that aspect of the job is only a few seconds left. But boy what a coming out party for Baker Mayfield. And for one game. At least that first pick in the draft was vindicated because this guy showed you what he showed in college is very accurate, very mobile variant Suzy aspect. I mean, the the team just took on a totally different tempo when he came in. Yeah. It was really magical. You don't like to use that word a lot. But that's what it was saying. They're in the building you feel it when he came in. And he hit those first two passes. The place was just rocking. It reminded me of seeing Tibo in Denver. You know in the stadium kind of exploding for this one guy and what he was doing. And what he he's energized. The team is the city was pretty fun to watch. Absolutely. Well, we'll talk to you next weekend and see how it all shakes out. Thank you, Brian. Thanks, okay. Brian Costello from the post in covering the jets for us as well.
