Employee Grief: What Leaders Must Do The Dying Art of Leadership Guy and Anthony Casablanca - burst 10
"And i kinda wanna focus on this one. Because it is the most undervalued and understated part of the grieving process the bargaining stage of grief that most people are familiar with. Is that phase in which you're saying to yourself or saying to the people around you. If only i would have or if maybe i should have turn back. The hands of time. Audits that have us questioning decisions. We made an if there was anything that we could have done to prevent or change these circumstances and there is a certain amount of self discovery that comes with that stage that from the outside. We tend to glaze over. We tend to tell people. Oh you can't think that way. Hindsight is twenty twenty. Don't don't put yourself through that right. When the fact of the matter is there are some there are some very pertinent tributes to those statements. You're right maybe maybe we should have gotten dabengwa. Should a force dad to go to the doctor when when he kept bailing on those appointments. You're right maybe we should have done that. There is room for personal self improvement in that stage and people will bounce around through all the phases of grief. But they'll keep coming back to that bargaining stage because it's part of our inherent address those things within ourselves to hopefully become a better person. And i think that's oftentimes overlooked especially from a leadership perspective. We don't we don't we. Don't wanna walk that path right with a grieving person. And it's a sensitive path right. You don't wanna say anything that could potentially with all of its best. Intentions could potentially be misinterpreted as criticism right but the self criticism that comes in those statements is incredibly valuable. And i never ever try and rush by my My grieving families through that stage. I let them sit in that stage for a little while. And i let them express themselves and get those thoughts out there and i don't have to say anything. They'll make their own self discovery through that process. So bargaining is is really really imperative typically then the sadness kind of sets in this is what happens after the funeral service and this is where the leadership part of it really comes into play bereavement policies by and large do not take into account the duration of grief. They only take into account the duration of the funeral process. Right when that person returns to work they are just starting their read it right and that's when they're coming to the leader right that's when they're coming to the meetings that's when the reports become do that's when their project is do is right when they're starting their breathing process and so that that is a very critical time for leadership. Recognize that. Look just because you had your three to five days. Bereavement leave doesn't mean you're done with this. Right is only just beginning and the the the work environment is seeing people come back very tender state. Perhaps as tender as i am seeing them. Come through my doors right. Where because they may begin to relive some of these experiences because now the funeral is over and they've got the mental capacity and the mental the emotional bandwidth to really kind of start to process and they're left alone with their feelings now because of the funeral is over. Everything has quieted down. Now it's just you your emotions nats when they're coming back to work right so let critical time. So here's the thing. So i use the kind of acronym called dab right. Abd is dabbed has how i always taught it when i was teaching. Psychology classes In colleges and universities. I'd say you know you gotta know dabba you know. The problem is is right. Denial anger bargaining depression and acceptance. The problem is is that we think that that's going to be linear that way that we go into denial that we get angry. But it's not as i mean we bounce. It's not a straight line. It's not linear we literally can bounce all over the
DAOs Back In The Spotlight with Professor Aaron Wright
"You've been in the ecosystem a very long time so you you were here. When the dow the entire the dow thing went down way interested in dallas. Before that do that kind of kick it off for you. Yeah i mean. I actually was an avid reader of bitcoin magazine. Way back in the day. And i remember Dan larimer writing about decentralized autonomous corporations which was kind of the precursor to douse. I thought that that was a fascinating concept. The thought being that you can use at that time that bitcoin blockchain and an interesting implementation called colored coins to begin to represent the structure of a corporation as using blockchain to kind of record interests in the entity using those interests to to think about how to transfer assets had build controls into a corporation using smart contracts. I thought it was absolutely fascinating and kind of all clicked together as not surprising when when metallic and others began to veto venture towards thirty. Am and dow's became an important part of that story. Right does appear in the white paper. There was lots of conversations around. is that the community. I began to think about. I was equally fascinated and the dow itself was really i expression of that interest right So a theorem Was just recently launched for the most part even though it took some time to get the on tests nats and a whole bunch of other technical hurdles. But you know i really thought it was great that christoph and and team began to really push. Here they wanted to build a was in the white paper. They wanted to explore what these new digital organizations can look like and the dow is really the first grade experiment in that area. I i remember even before the dow launched seeings or demos and other things by the sparkle team dealing with you know a theam slash iot related devices which i thought were incredibly cool and i think to everybody's surprise though. The dow just was much more successful. Than i than. I think anybody would have imagined right. It was supposed to be kind of a a small experiment. It became a massive experiment and then he had a kind of a spectacular. Finish at which i think was Was great in terms of automating people's minds about the possibilities of a theorem at but at the same time highlighting a number of the challenges and but technical and then over subsequent months has lawyers and other folks began to to get some regulatory challenges as well so it you know i think it was the first great use case for theory was dow's and i do think people had a bit of ptsd. How after the dow and they were kind of free to play around and divan and start. Start to see what this ecosystem look like. There was obviously developer teams like the arrogant team and the dow stocks team. That were that were pushing forward. But i think people put to to the side as we saw token sales and other other kind of crypto economic systems began to be exported in twenty sixteen seventeen eighteen. But they're back great houser coming back to focus. There's a lot of activity in the dow space that i think as you know folks are beginning to pay attention to and if you are a developer or somebody that's interested in boxing technology. I imagine that it's probably worth your time to start to dig in here and think about what may be coming over the next couple of months and years.

Vaccine Hesitancy is Solvable
"Dr montgomery rice so happy to be able to talk to you about this today. You know. I think a lot of us have been watching a catastrophe within the catastrophe or one of them which is that covid. Nineteen has disproportionately in acted people of color. And i think even more disproportionately killed people of color. You know one would hope in that situation. That african americans would be at the front of the line to get their vaccines and i wonder if you can talk a minute about where we are. And why african americans are in some cases more reluctant than others to get the vaccine. We know that this virus has disproportionate impact of people of color. Not just african americans but latte necks and questions were raised early on with their something unique about race or ethnicity that put people at greater risk what we really recognize when you look at the science that this virus did not discriminate that if you were in proximity with someone who was infected you had a higher chance of being infected nat next and african american word the people who were the essential workers because they are the people who check people into emergency room. They are the orderly. they're the ones in food service. The other ones in transport driving your buses. Who were picking up your trach. Who will work in restaurants etc. So you know that they were at increased risk of being infected so with not that this virus was discriminatory per se against people because of their race. Ethnicity is the social determinants. They have led to this now. Having said all of that we know that we see a disproportionate number of health disparities because of the social constructs that are not allowed for greater access to care and then access to the greatest level of quality of care. And so we have made a alan effort in the scientist community to make sure that black scientists have been at the table of the backseat discovery and development the valuation of the data in the clinical trials and then the decisions at the fda cdc of the allocation and and of course people saw you getting your first dose of the vaccine on on cnn and one of the other. I recipients of the pfizer vaccine was an african american nurse in long island So they're clearly been efforts. Would you've been in. The center of to have prominent trusted african american voices publicly getting vaccinated if someone sees you getting vaccinated on cnn. Sure that builds trust the institution you represent all the things you're talking about but at the same time what my friends are saying or what my neighbors are saying or what i feel like the people i know are going to do is going to have such a big impact. How do you create influence at that level around accedes. So you know i take a lot of phone calls a lot of emails and I tell people the truth always so when we didn't know stuff early on jacob. I told them we didn't know yet. We needed to give time for the studies to be completed with vaccine trials and then as we started to know more we then shared more. And so what. I've tried to do is to be transparent about what we don't know and open even more open about what we do know and at no point have i ask people to deviate from those healthcare practices. Oh of the three ws washing your hands wearing your masks in watching your distance and recently i added a p on that so as three ws. Nlp now being patient for wind is your turn to receive a vaccine. And so i think is really really critical that we as healthcare providers as scientists. Let people know that. This is evolving. That's what i've tried to do with my peers. Is to make sure that they understand that. We don't know everything but what we do know. Be confident in that.
How to Save Your Marriage
"Going to promise you one thing and that is that we could save your marriage so many times on the show. We've talked about marriage problems and often the solution for serious problems is marriage. Therapy easy to say you'll go but many times the one spouse will not go so what we're going to do is try and make it easy for you as a gift. We're going to give you two free days of marriage therapy. You won't have the expense and you won't have to leave the house. Starting today you will get a chance to look inside a marriage therapy weekend and here is what you'll see. We took eight couples who all admitted their marriages were on the brink of disaster. They spent the weekend with dr horrible hendrix. Who conducts these marriage workshops across the country and in the course of the weekend amazing results happened. Marriages were saved. And today you can begin to say yours. Tim and vicky webster have been married now. For two and a half years they are separated and vicky is expecting their third child. My next couple. Layton and debbie. Clark have three children and i've been married for six years. Derek and valencia. Stevens have been married for five and a half years. George and beth pasta have been married fifteen years and they have two children. Randy and pam mal have been married over twelve years and they have two children. Joe and karen stricklin have been married now for two years and they have three children from a previous marriage. Jim and laurie tolliver have been married nine months. The last of the eight couples has the biggest obstacle to overcome. James and mimi had been married six years. Mimi has filed for divorce. They came to the seminar truly to save the marriage. James and mimi lacey also joining us the mastermind behind this particular kind of marriage therapy and the author of this book which the therapy is based on called getting the love. You want getting the love you want. It is a guide for couples. Please welcome our marriage man. Harvard this. I have been watching some of the tape from the seminar and it is it has helped me and my relationship tremendously really has really just in learning how to fight fairly and so forth. Why is this different. It's different because there's a focus on an understanding that couples issues arise out of their childhood. And that when they present themselves in the relationship we have to understand that they come from someplace other than just the marriage so the workshop helps couples understand that provides them with some tools experiences information to help them resolve those childhood issues in their relationship. So we take the position that divorce is not the solution to a marriage that Working on marriage and resolving the childhood issue is the solution. So when you're married to someone you have to look at them for everything that they brought to the marriage before they got there exactly. Yeah childhood most important. You have to look at the childhood issues that were brought knowing that most of the conflict couples experience in their relationship comes from unresolved pains and hurts in childhood that are presenting themselves in adult form in the relationship. And if you know that then you know you're relating to a person when they're angry at you or upset or acting sort of crazy and you don't understand what's going on that relating to a person who's wounded and hurt and are dealing with that wound and hurt with the only skills and tools that they now have and that what you have to do in a relationship is to acquire new skills to deal with the old issues they have to be dealt with and so. The exercise that we're going to see now is called container. Exercise called a container exercise and this exercise comes actually at the end of two days of very intensive work. So it's about probably sixteen hours into the workshop before you get to this before you can get to this part because it takes a while to get to these kinds of feelings and the container is an exercise designed to help a couple deal with. What is what. I call a residual childhood rage. The hurts and pains the feelings. That are leftover that are created when when his little and get hurt and so. That rage shows up in marriages as Anger rage hurt and so forth in this container helps you deal with that because it has to be dealt with and resolve it so that you feel closer and more intimate afterwards. It creates compassionate intimacy rather than the distance that comes with most fights nats call container. Why because one person has to just listen. One person has to justice and one is a container that is they receive and listen and the other person is asked to go into their childhood hurt. It starts with something that happened in the relationship but then there to push their anger into the childhood memory and then into that pain. So there'd be a lot of expressions of intense anger and then tears usually come and then after that some talking and then when couples are doing this and they're real life you know in their home or in the workshop they alternate one listens as a carrying holding nurturing parrot and the other one goes in becomes regress like a little child back into that paint.

Zach Seward started Quartz, sold it, and bought it back. Now what?
"Person you hear laughing at my expense is zach. Seward who is the ceo. Of course welcomes. Peter always happy to laugh at your expense. Yeah no it's as you should. I was rude to you when you were an internet forbes so you definitely deserve the last laugh. There's a long history of courts it starts in two thousand twelve when it was Atlantic media created it. You're the co founder. There it was then sold to use a base twenty eighteen into japanese media company. Most folks here have never heard of and you are now the ceo and owner of the publication. Again it's a long history but let's let's do the recent history i this fall. You announced that you have bought the publication back from its last owner. But you're not gonna be the owner yourself right. You're trying to get investors to sort of stand up. The publication was katherine del courts editor. In chief at i conducted a management buyout. gender bought bought the company from From us days so we chair ownership Majority owner and now we're also going out and seeking additional investment from from others. They will will have a number of owners after complete that fundraising around so you're in the midst of fundraising as we're speaking. What is your pitch to an investor in in thousand twenty for funding courts. There's a lot of skepticism and negatively about about media an online media in general You've got a publication that it had a bunch of interest at be getting sold for a decent amount of in two thousand eighteen. You've got an owner you. You're the last owners. I don't want publication anymore. What are you telling investors today about future. In in eight years we built something rare in digital media which is a strong new brand with a dedicated loyal audience of following our coverage of global business news and have a built both a great advertising and nat in the last two years great subscription business on top of that brand loyalty and serially clear path to making it a sustainable business going forward so his court's gonna be an i think answered it but the idea of the courts is courts started off as an ad based business when us based bottom. It said we'd like to make this a subscription business. You guys went ahead and started doing that Lots of people are trying to figure out how to sell. Subscriptions online Will descriptions be sort of the dominant revenue source for you guys in your in the future. You're imagining yes. But i should be clear. I think that future. When subscription revenue equals the is as big as our advertising revenue is still many years often five or more years off but but sure you know over the long run with we wanna have a really healthy distribution of revenue streams across advertising against and even within those two categories. There's already quite a few different revenue lines that we've we've got going to expand over the next five years so again before we go back to the beginning. Of course let's go back twenty eighteen twenty nineteen and twenty twenty userbase botchy. They said we want to make this a subscription business. You guys went ahead and did that. A lot of people are trying to do that. what didn't happen for you Over the last couple of years why did use base decided where. We can't make a go. This will i. What did happen as you just said it is. It is accelerating courses moved into reader revenue at the launch of our membership program. We were always planning to go into subscription but the acquisition definitely accelerated those plans. I think the deal with us based closed on august first twenty eighteen and launched the membership them two months later and i think that's the best biggest takeaway from the last two years. A glad that happened. I wish it happened. Two years prior because it really helps strengthen the the business that we have now but what didn't happen i mean i guess it. In short userbase was hoping to recreate the model that had been successful for it in japan. Got a his aggregation app in In japan called news picks the tried to apply pretty much the exact same model to courts in terms the product experience and trying to create a community of of our readers that in the end that was pretty forced. A strategy didn't work as well as as they had hoped And then along came this pandemic and that challenged our advertising business this year and then ultimately challenged us bases ability to be in this for the long haul that prompted them to start looking for alternatives. And at what point did you raise your hand and say actually i'll buy this thing and all find investors was that was that always something you thought you might do or was it. After they had tried to find another home for it and couldn't it's sort of in the middle of that process. Sit some point this summer as we started planning for. Twenty twenty one. It became clear that wasn't going to put up the kind of investment that we felt was necessary to carry the business forward that prompted an emanate process to look for so called strategic alternatives but air quotes There was there was interest from a number of parties. And somewhere in the middle there catherine. I raised their hand. And that s that the userbase consider us as one of the suitors as well. Obviously that that's what happened. It's funny to talk about risk in two thousand twenty right. It's pretty loaded word. But i'm assuming it would be less risky for you. If a strategic buyer had bought at bought courts from us bases that have used her to sticking your neck out and saying all right. i'm gonna. i'm gonna figure out how to finance this thing myself. What what is the decision process for you. Sort of mr mrs multiple days and nights of thinking. Do i really want to do this. her easier way easier things to do in life than to buy back a publication in twenty twenty you sort of walk me through your mindset. Sure yeah i certainly agree with less risky personally to for to find some other buyer for courts and so yeah i assure catherine did something similar had to go through. A process of our web put nearly a decade into into the so far my ready to do another decade. How much believe in this brand and our ability to to make the business model working the i wanted to be real with myself because have to turn around and be real are pleased in our forthcoming investors. Obviously you know after all probably had a week to do all of that introspection. After that week long introspection can him with yeses. All those all those answers I love court said. I believe really deeply what we're trying to do here
Interview With Dan Westergren
"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died. We had to listen to all the versions of space. Oddity that we could find.
REIGNY DAY FINALE
"All right big announcement. I told you there is an announcement. Maybe you heard. Maybe it would hurt. Because i think this probably only place. I'm going to say it. This is going to be the last rainy day podcast because i am abandoning zach. I'm abandoning the rain. And i'm leaving. I have taken a job In detroit or for the red wings and tigers. I won't be broadcasting games. I'm hoping to maybe keep doing that. But let's not get another personal stuff. Because i think it's better to burn out than fade away. Neil young one said. And so i know what you're wondering. Now who's gonna fill in In join zack. As he continues up these pains. And i don't know i don't know I don't know what will happen.

The paul simon in this group and will likely go on to be wildly successful whereas zach will have mrs robinson and that's about it as as far as his hits go. I'm moving on out. I will get into a few things in a sack. But i another thing. You're thinking as who's going to call the ring games. And i think it's gotta be used back and i know everyone's like well that can't call the games second kagame. He's never called a hockey game before bites little. Do you know zach as a matter of one time hopped on the mike in called. Play by play for the terreaux fire. Department verse d. n. y. Game and i have a couple of clips from that game to an active.

It was pretty okay on the games but it is. I think going to add a level of excitement. So here's just one clip. That i'll play now. Sixteen seconds left on the clock on panthers on. This is the most exhilarating game i've seen in my life. The sixteen bazan italians are going berserk. We had seven seven game. Twelve point four on the clock here at citizens business bank arena.

I mean you future in this. I mean i'm used to calling games with sixteen or less people at them. So that's that's me up well to do this during a pandemic it's So that's one thing in my favor Like color man from that game is a one time rainy day. Podcast guest mas- mcelroy. I'm sure he would up and leave his current job with vegas come back and be the rain kellerman unpaid of course as you can tell by his performance in that obviously wouldn't pay him to do color I think he would probably leave in a heartbeat to that. So the tandems there. I mean the the obvious answers in place with myself on play by play nat color. So we'll see you know maybe Maybe i do have a few. Maybe though You know some other. Nhl teams here that call on this rainy day. Podcast they want me to call. Nhl games and the rain are still looking. I don't know you leave as well. Yeah maybe you know that could volt. Nbc job doc. Emrick guy retired. Maybe they hear this. They just kind of me up to that job So something to think about moving forward. So let's wrap up here. i do you know. There's a lot of people that i like. That i've said to so i'm not gonna do it here But this podcast has been an absolute blast. And so i do want to thank everyone who has lessons This is been a ton of fun of once. We got into the rhythm of it. And i think we did a good thing here with this. I'm really gonna miss call in the ring games like calling the game. Not being able to do that consistently is very bitter sweet. I guess it's just bitter. It's not sweet leaving bittersweet but calling. The game's not not being able to do that next year. It's tough But the just gonna be here. And i'm not going to get into because it's really not any your business you listeners. But i But i am going to miss all of you. I love doing this. Podcast and i love working for the rain and you never know. Maybe i'll see again. Maybe i won't But i just thank you for listening and we have had a lot of fun doing this. Podcast i think zach. Have you know. I have a lot of funded. Didn't really know what to expect when a lot better than it did. In our trial run in two thousand eighteen nineteen so is it was really cool to kind of see what it turned into to be able to have some really cool guests on some of our our players our top prospects you know sharing some stories and having fun. I thought that we took it in our own direction. Didn't care what anyone else thought. And i liked that. We had the chance to do that. Yeah i agree so again. Thank you to all of you. Thank you to our supporters of his reign staff year. And darren glenn we're We're big supporters and in the as well mike and kelly cheesman was big friend of the program we We always appreciated that support. But we're going to put this thing to bed. The rainy day podcast is gonna go out of the world just like it came in which is very mysteriously and very auspiciously. So that's how that's how we're gonna leave this zach good luck. I'm sure you'll work your release another month but i. I don't know maybe leave. Maybe won't be able to do it without me. I have kind of been You've been riding my coattails this organization for long enough. Maybe the time is up sharply in the local paper to try and replace that how we hire down these days just like a like a wanted like wanted middle aged five gaster with sas. I think you should open auditions open. Auditions zach a week long. Tweet year your audition at rain. Insider and i will be happy to listen to all audition tapes. That are tweeted to me. I think that's a great idea. Degraded him all right everyone. It has been a blast. We'll talk to you later. Maybe probably not for now is just goodbye.
How to Pick the Right Music For Live Streaming with Matt Schick
"Why is picking the right music still important for your livestreams. Sure thank you yes. So here's here's where we're at currently so there's a lot of great ways to produce great streams that are engaging in this new virtual world. The problem is most people still aren't doing that so we're left with you. Know we're left with this condition where we're just all so Saturated with three restoring ed screens on with meetings and family get togethers and family. Holidays in lung were laying in bed. Scrolling instagram watching videos of of our favorite influencers. So we're constantly looking at this stuff and it's getting old. I mean zoom fatigue was a real thing back in may and here. We are in nearly december. And it's the problem so the ability to add something that changes up the rhythm of people's day days is very important so they're used to watching talking and listening to talking hearing people talk about them so in order to in performing world. When you're building a stage show it's really important heads and flows so you have the not just the same tonality the entire time of wakes people up it it. It just it gets people gets the juices reenergized. So it's really important to do that. And music is a great way of doing so where just keeps the energy moving along and It just it it it takes from being just a monotonous talking which people just hearing all day as a little bit of Of of levity in some cases excitement in other cases the most poorly just a tone that you get to create with music so when okay so obviously you know picking write music very important. I love the ebbs and flows. You talk about their so. I mean there are times where people shouldn't use music on their livestreams. I mean. are there certain times where you know. Oh well you should use maybe just an interim you know an intro and then continued that throughout your stream and have altro that goes with it or should you have like sound bed. That goes plays throughout seem or. Are there times where you shouldn't use any music. That's those are all great questions. Yes for sure you don't want to overdo it with music. a little. a little goes a long way especially when it's very very delicate right like we're talking and we are the feature so right now if i were to play a song overpower us and he couldn't hear what i was saying. Were you were saying christian. It would be it would degrade the performance not enhanced the performance because i say performance. Because that's my becker the podcast so you. The ability to hear your. Your speaker presenter is above importance below that having a nice music sets the tone for what exactly is going on at the same time is is very helpful so fun example that i always use it. Sounds sounds silly but if you try you'll really see how effective it is just like film video on your phone of of your wife or your husband or child walking to the mailbox right and that's all you need right the walking out to the mailbox to get the mail. If you put a sad slow cinematic song behind that this thing becomes tear jerker i mean if you put it in black and white forget about it. You're you're you've lost your audience but it really can set the tone for just fills in the blanks and paints a story. That video only cannot do you put upbeat peppy music to that now. It's a story of a of you know your daughter going to get the mail excited for package to come and wants to see if it's there and nat music change alone without changing speed. The weights shot or anything else. That music can completely repaint that picture for you. So it's very important. It's very nice if you're talking about something very serious. Music isn't the way to go for talking about something with some comedic levity something a little more upbeat and and comical would really help that It's just a really depends on what the stream is but the run of show is when to use it when not you mentioned a couple of different You know use use case studies. I should say so. There's there's what's called the music bed. Music bed is as music that literally lays underneath. Or i say you lay on top of the music just like you sleep. Innovate and so The music is underneath. You just like beds underneath you when you're sleeping so its music. That's pretty low in the background. You still hear. The music is typically no lyrics. it's looking instrumental. Ambient sound that again crates. That mood as you're talking and that can go. If there's like ireland period is speaking or let's say you're europe demonstrating something or sharing a screen and you just fill it in and just make it a little more interesting. It's a really great Great no. You study for music bed. There's also it's called stinger or stings or some people need him. Bumpers in that can be like up next. We've got a really great guest. It's adam shark tank. But i but i borrow a bow and that's your stinger. You know just a bit of just an energy jolt so again people. Listen to you for ten minutes. You've got a fun. Jingle or sting that comes in maybe weren't throughout the entire show that people are used to that. It's on brand for you. Music great way to establish a brand and stick to it. Maybe it's a sting that you used. Throughout the entire event they'd be at the beginning and the end you've got to prolong jazz insurance altro and it just is it. All together into a nice cohesive package so yeah there's a lot of ways of using it overdoing it is definitely something you don't want do Service just really important to make sure that you're picking music at the right time and making make strategic choices and along those lines to do you think that sometimes People are like you know you hear a lot of times like oh i wanna play all this music. And then they're they're stuff's getting taken down and it's almost like they feel like if they can't have music they're like somehow doomed a-. What are your thoughts on that. Yeah no it's it's very important if you and if you're not aware of i'm glad you brought it up jim because you know you can't just play music that you're not licensed to us. And what is that pretty much everything you've ever heard before i mean if you listen to radio every single track you've ever heard on. The radio is is owned by another entity. A record label or an artist. You know when when you When we used to do our live show in cedars you pay their to organizations. You pay the right. You pay rights to There's as cap in this. Bmi and those organizations essentially pay. These blanket costs covers the Your ability to play tracks in a theater. So currently there's no real way where that translates super well to to live because if you're streaming youtube heavens youtube know that you paid for the rights to iraq harry song in fact there's been funny stories of actual artists to play their own materials. Clearly their licencee in many cases own it and they're streams are getting pulled down because sites like youtube and facebook and pinterest our end What's twitter periscope rather not patriots video yet. That'd be drifts yet you know. Those sites have robo scanners that automatically detect a copy written material whether it's video audio so they can in many cases. Just pull your stream down altogether Because they think you're using it with permission or many cases. A lot of us are trying to monetize streams so they say hey. You're not allowed to make money off of this other person's contents or naturally they pull your stream down and that could be devastating if you're livestream producer or livestream host of your of your own show. Have you strip pulled down as certainly very frightening so you have to do it. The right way and there are quite a few right ways of doing it. So while you can't play again You know whitney houston or lady gaga song because those are obviously owned by their respective record labels. You can't play other types of music there's public domain music and there's royalty free music so public domain music is basically a library of music that known space gates. It's used for us for one thousand. Nine hundred seventeen is the year or anything before that year Songs such as happy birthday for example. Anything was released before that are public domain. So you can use it anywhere. No one owns the rights to this Annual not getting you to would never pull your string down etc so you're surly allowed to do that The wider umbrella a portfolio of music. That you can use 'cause 'cause you're limited with public domain is what's called royalty free music this music that's been created for the sole purpose of being used by content creators. So many cases for all two free doesn't mean that it's free Although there are certain free royalty free websites but royalty free basically means you are allowed to purchase the rights to the news this music and typically purchased the rights. One time now you have access to use the music and while youtube still doesn't know somebody's telling you to have oh match. Schick in new york purchased the rights to the jiffy. Pop one eighty fitches a song. I just created morning. Everyone doesn't know that usually youtube does know. Is that jiffy. Pop eighty is a royalty. Free song that they will fly or poll down so when i buy the rights through a website. And we can talk about websites. I like to use but when you buy the rights to those websites essentially you now get the track and full quality without any audio watermark. And i can use that without being pulled out of my stream so
Why buy a DSLR?
"Are you today. Excellent happy december. Absolutely i'm to leave. I'm going to lead the year out of that happy but you know happy december. The did you see the video. That ryan reynolds production company created about two days ago. Yes with devil and twenty twenty i. I've seen he says. I have not seen all of it but it looks really good zip So the story line for those who haven't seen it basically it's an ad for match dot com. Which is a dating site. And you've got the devil Who gets a notification on his phone saying that he's got a a match on match dot com and it's this girl who he goes to the meats and he says two zero two zero and she says call me twenty twenty they hang out together and the world's gown absolute crap and at the end this sitting side by side on a park benches asteroids flying in and hitting the earth the devils going. Be she to wind. And don't forget the required dumpster fire in the background. So yeah it's pretty indicative of this year. I think it is So how has your last. Seven days bain. My friend It's good a little busy a little. I had a lot of presentations this week. Which you know that's good. That's that's making money now and in pandemic time but i will tell you. I did something that i've never done before. So if you're if the listeners wanna check this out they can feel free to weigh in on this and maybe we'll talk about it next week. But i did a presentation for olympus yesterday run and You can see this presentation. It was a livestream. We did it on the olympics. The us olympics facebook page. So it's get ged t get. Olympus is the username. And i decided to kind of go out on a limb and they were kind enough to let me do it so they asked if i would participate in this twelve days of christmas promotion that they're doing and i said of course being and they said it'd be cool if you could you know do something about Doing like holiday portraits in creative things for holiday portraits and again. That's cool at sept-. I can't really shoot. Be because of this pandemic stuff and my wife is immuno-compromised song they're gonna bring a model makeup artist and that kind of stuff but the light bulb went off. I said i'll tell you what if you're game. I'd like to actually take it to the extreme and do our. But i don't wanna show any pictures at all. Wow a single picture. And i'm not gonna take any pictures so i'm going to do a one hour presentation about taking creative holiday portrait's and not show pictures and i'll admit they raise an eyebrow but they said hey we trust you you know your stuff so it's like okay and it was pretty well received so what i did just not scaring people completely is. I decided that it would be really cool to try and get people's creative thoughts going. So what i did show are lots of props but like you know the obvious christmas decoration things like to so garland nat but i had glasses drinking glasses and glass vases and i had some material things and i talked through all these different things that you could do to make your holiday. Portraits were interesting with the idea. Being that i didn't want to give people an example so that they could be lazy and just copied the example. I wanted to kind of plant an idea and really it. Any motion and challenge. And then olympus was was good enough. They agreed that we would run a little hashtag contest with it and The deadline is december twentieth. And the best shots that we pick olympus. Us and uk are going to share on their facebook pages and they're instagram stories. And then separately from olympus. I'm going to pick a one winter. The coolest shot the most creative idea that i find in the group and i'm going to do a one hour video consultation with them. Whatever topic they won't we can talk about their photography to a portfolio review post processing business. Whatever so so far experiments also good start it was it was pretty well received. There are a few people that were not happy that we weren't showing vigils. Most people actually commented if they thought it was actually a really neat thing because they were sitting there listening and they were actually able to imagine ideas in their mind based on where they're going to be for the holidays or based on their house and decorations. So we'll see i. You know i figure. Hey gotta take a chance. Every now and say in principle that sounds like the absolute ideal way to approach that. Because as you say the minute you put up images people are just going to go. How can i recreate that. It's what i want them to do. Is get away from those to actually get creative and yes right. So i i went to great lengths to really kind of describe my ideas in detail how i would go about doing them but i didn't want to show them ideas and i'll i'll make sure i share the link to the lies yea totally so it It was it was kind of fun doing it. I won't i won't lie. I was a little worried the whole time. Because as i'm talking to the camera i can't really watch the comments so i'm thinking all right she like this or they hate it. When i finish talking. I was almost afraid to look at the comments
Leptin Resistance: Causes, Symptoms & Support Strategies
"While hello today. I'm talking about leptin resistance. The major causes the symptoms. They may experience. If you have it and support strategies you can take your body can heal and function at. Its best so when we think about left in it is an incredible hormone and actually comes from our fat cells so years ago we used to think the fat cells or basically just energy reserves but now we actually understand them as part of the endocrine system meaning part of the hormone system and the reason why they produce this hormone leptin also another hormone adiponectin as well as they actually produce multiple hormones but left in is the one that we know the most about and leptin plays a big role in helping regulate bone mass helps activate immune cells. It helps to balance. Dry blood pressure helps regulate thyroid. Hormone controls appetite. Which is what we know it mostly for is its appetite regulatory center But it also helps to Put the brakes on insulin release and it helps to regulate the menstrual cycle. So it's a major hormone very very critical and we start to release leptin when the fat cells start to grow okay. So as we're eating we naturally start to fill up fat cells and then leptons released it goes to the brain part of the brain called the hypothetical miss which is kinda the antenna of our body which is constantly sensing the blood stream and kind of seeing what hormones are there and what it needs to be able to adapt to the environment so when leptin gets released it goes up hypothalamus senses. That leptin is there and it says okay. I'm satisfied satiated. I can turn off insulin release. And now i can turn on a fat burning case now. I can go ahead and burning fat for fuel because the fat cells are filled up. And i can turn off insulin. The problem though is when we're dealing with chronic inflammation can affect our leptin sensitivity in our hypothetical mess and therefore we don't feel satiated and we don't turn off insulin release and we don't we were hungry. Wanna keep eating and we don't burn fat for fuel so the counterpart to leaped in is growling gremlin signals hunger so when our stomach is empty. We release growled. Grr elon goes up to the hypothalamus and tells us i'm hungry. I want to eat so ghrelin. And leptin are basically like on the see-saw they are the opposites. They're antagonists warmer satiated. We've got high amounts of leaped in nats over ranking or gremlin. When we're hungry we've got grown. being released. not much slept in their former hungary k. So that's basically how it works now. Here's how leptin resistance works so lapped in functions turn off appetite while promoting the burning of triglycerides that bloat fat cells as people accumulate excess fat cells. Or you know there another term for them. Is adam sites. Siri active protein. Which is an inflammatory protein is released. So as we start to accumulate Fatter boat. The fat we release c reactive protein that binds to in the blood. It impairs leptons transport across the blood brain barrier and thus prevents leptin in from performing its dual function of breaking down stored body fat and controlling appetite as more fat cells on the body greater amounts of c reactive protein are released binding leptin even more. This is the vicious cycle of leptin. Resistance helps explain why people often get fatter with each passing year. Because if you don't stop this just gets worse and worse and worse because you don't have the natural satiate switch c- continue to eat. You continue to produce more leptin which binds the c reactive protein which which turns on more inflammation in the body. We get more and more inflammation here and we have a major problem there and this is basically how we have the in weight gain cycle so basically we start with a disrupted signal and he can really start anywhere on this circle. But let's start with a disrupted signal so even though we have an abundance of stored fat and leptin. The signal to our brain gets disrupted. Like i was just talking about so the blood brain barrier the c reactive protein bound. The leptin can't cross. It's too big a molecule to cross. So it can't cross so the hypothalamus does not get the signal from leptin them we overeat because we don't get the natural satiate signal and that leads to food cravings and over eating which increases the amount of calories. We're consuming oftentimes sweet foods and foods that are healthy for us we gain weight and then that weight gain increases the amount of being released which therefore increases c reactive protein and we end up with whole body inflammation and leptin resistance and the cycle continues. And so the main causes of leptin resistance are stress and poor sleep chronic inflammation our body and that might be from like gut infections different bio toxic illnesses. Like mold toxicity or lime disease or something along those lines. Something that can drive up inflammation insulin resistance
Investing in Bitcoin
"All right we are joined today by zach. Prince and ceo of block fight zach. Thank you so much for coming on today. Guys them so pumped to be here. I listened to your show every week for the first time. I've been nervous to go on a podcast public speaking in a while. Because i'm just so happy to be herbs so excited to be the first guest talking about cryptocurrency on the animal spirits. Podcast i think is a longtime Well thank you for saying that. We are excited as well. We actually started this pocket. And i were just talking about this in november twenty seventeen so right into the teeth of bitcoin mania and we'll get into two point out. I don't think it's quite the say manic fever that we saw in december twenty seventeen. But why don't we just start off briefly for those who don't know anything about you. Give us a quick introduction. Who are you zach. The founder and ceo blocked by. I grew up in texas. I was always kind of an entrepreneurial slash math in finance minded kid. I guess i actually put myself through college as a semi professional online poker player so unlike a lot of folks are generation unfortunate to not be carrying a big amount of college debt. I always wanted to work in the financial services industry. But i finished school in may of two thousand nine so i ended up working in an advertising technology startup that was ultimately a really successful venture. We got acquired by google. I spend a little bit of time at google but learned that. I really enjoyed building things and being at smaller companies left google to start another ad tech business that got acquired and then more recently and most relevant for blocked by i was working in the fintech sector specifically the online lending side of fintech. So there was a big boom in that industry appear to peer lending online lending and alternative investing and i worked at one of the companies. That was the biggest aggregation of data provider of technology solutions to institutional investment firms that were participating in that asset class. When i was doing nat i became kind of like the fintech guy within my friend group and i started writing a blog which i don't think rather i just i didn't stay with it as well as the Clogs and built up a readership but writing. This blog is what led me to discover bitcoin for the first time back in twenty fourteen and one of the things that struck me about it initially was a lot of what happens in fintech is just a new front end on top of the traditional financial system. So you're doing something that banks already do but you're doing it with a mobile app with a much better user experience and it's faster and easier. You don't have to go onto a branch when i learned about big like. Wow this is something truly different. You've got a brand new asset built on top of payment network where i can move something around the world. Twenty four seven and it's not using any part of the traditional financial ecosystem. So i was screaming to no one on this blog and twenty fourteen. I think you should be taking a flyer on bitcoin. Maybe it goes to zero. But with a little bit of capital you should be investing in it and then from there kind of slowly and steadily went down. What people in the crypto currency industry referred to as the rabbit hole and ended up starting block five around the same time. You'll start started this podcasts. In the fall of two thousand seventeen to before we get into what blocked by does specifically. How do you explain bitcoin. Someone who thinks they know what it means or has no idea in is never really entered. This base of workers obviously digital ledger been well. I mean i think one of the actual biggest positives about bitcoin. The fact that the narrative seems to change so many times over the years. But how do you explain it to someone who doesn't really know what it is one of the things. I like to start with when i'm explaining bitcoin. People is the best analogy and kind of story. That i've ever heard demystified a little bit and the story is actually about the platypus. So back in the sixteen hundreds explorers from europe. We're going all around the world. They got australia. They found the platypus and they sent some specimens back to europe on the ship and the scientists back in europe rigidly thought. They were playing twisted joke on them. And they're like this animal can't be real. You stapled together a duck in beaver and you're telling us this thing lays eggs like there's no way this is a real animal. It took the scientific community about fifty years to actually accept. The planet was a real animal. Create a little part of the animal classification kingdom that incorporated the platypus. Another funky animals like it but the platypus was very real and the problem that bitcoin is had is kind of this platypus problem in the traditional financial services industry. Where is it. A currency is it. An asset is it. A commodity is security is at a payment network. Well it's not really any one of those things in a silo. It's a little bit of all those things and it's something completely new but it definitely exists and the reaction from votes whether it's jamie diamond or others who are now coming around to it but back in twenty seventeen. They were saying bitcoin fraud. It's a scam. It's only used by folks who are doing illegal activities. Those types of things come from a position of not actually understanding.

Let's Encrypt's Cross-Signed Root Expires Next Year
"Something interesting has happened with. Let's encrypt on friday. They blog d- standing on our own two feet and the issue. That's come up is so interesting on fundamental that i decided to share what they've said With some inline editorializing of course About that you know the situation. They find themselves in so so they wrote what a new certificate authority comes on. the scene. Which i'll note does not happen very often. They said it faces a conundrum. In order to be useful to people it needs its roots certificate to be trusted by a wide variety of operating systems and browsers however it can take years for the oh s.'s and browsers to accept the new root certificate and even longer for people to upgrade their devices to the newer versions that include that change the common solution. A new ca will often ask an existing trusted certificate authority for a cross signature to quickly get it into being trusted by lots of devices. You know we talked about this in the beginning of of let's encrypt And we looked at their the certificate that they were producing was cross. Signed by ident- trust. I think it was anyway. So they said five years ago when let's encrypt launched. That's exactly what we did. We got a cross saito. Yeah the across signature from identity. Just their dst route x three have been around for long time and all the major software platforms trusted. It already windows. Fire fox mac. Os android irs and a variety of distributions. That cross signature allowed us. They wrote to start issuing certificates away and have them be used by a lot of people. Without ident- trust let's encrypt may have never happened. And we are grateful to them for their partnership. Meanwhile we issued our own root certificate. I s r g route x one and applied for it to be trusted by the major software platforms now. Those software platforms have trusted our root certificate. Meaning the let's encrypt root certificate for years and the s. t. route x three routes or ticket that we relied on to get us off. The ground is going to expire on september. First twenty twenty one. they said. Fortunately we're ready to stand on our own and rely solely on our own root certificate. However they wrote this does introduce some compatibility woes some software that has not been updated since two thousand and sixteen. They said approximately when our route was accepted to many root programs still doesn't trust our root certificate. Is rg route. X one most notably this includes versions of android prior to seven point. One point one that means those older versions of android will no longer trusts. Certificates issued by. Let's encrypt
"nat" Discussed on The Nat Coombs Show
"Love that about the NFL community full. Stop in and you've been involved in it as you safer. Got Thirty years now pretty much. It's it's such a real community. Isn't it in the UK that there is a sensitive yet? You and I do what we do. It'd be lucky enough to to do it for a career and Jeff and Mike and Everybody else. But we'll finds nothing that that's what connects us with the the defines. Doing a walking up real causes that first and foremost here. We have a job today. We got to present who analysis? Stay the compensation whatever it might be but ultimately rule watching this thing together the nature of NFL in particular kizer keeps breaking because he keeps coming back. Because you can react so quickly to what's going on like football where it is the pre game. That's forty five minutes. Halftime forty five minutes fulltime just creates much more a sense of community that world together. Because if you take a football match you can have the most polished present who has a positive knowledge or entrusted football. And that's not the not saying that's the case. But you could and you could script issue. Pre-game is halftime his post-game like pundits through the way with different. Because site so on sky that come back every every ten minutes for Simul the baby see. It's the same every bright. You'll your you can't just put in what? I would call a TV person. You have to have a knowledge of it. You have to be able to take the compensation anyway anytime and you have to. You have to love it. You have to be able to share that passion as well so I think we are a little bit different and so within with more policy community Tailgate on a Sunday morning. Outside Wembley Stadium. I know the first five or six guys are going to be in the front row. Nfl UK live in cover outside lights. This one to that and I guess we're lucky in a way that we can do that because we're not massive to the point of rich Eisen. Nfl NETWORK NFL in America. So it's it's a really cool position to be in as one of the presenters. Because you still are I think an have a foot in the ground with the fans shooting again. What should with fans we we watch the Games you know we we we chair the site-wide people say what he did in studio so we said every every game with about down around about state. That's that's that's just being a fan. We just did a different seat. Yeah that's it. That's well put speaking of the Games. The brook cost element of it. Who's your favorite comedy crew? Either of time all right out could be can be either. Oh by but I'm very much Mike Collins and I guess that's probably significantly because you pretty much throughout all of my career with it and the late night you know from day one for years and years they were the voices alongside me and so I guess I have that sentimental connection but just in terms of I mean Michael's is just everything I want in at American anchor and Collins with US walk so well together they bounce off each other so they've what's GonNa so long as that. Familiarity is this paddock os just so so floated some points bed. Might that might talk to you. What about you so back? In the day matinee the summer will kind of laws on grew up. With and again you talk about the passion and Excitement Watt Light Madden was this kind of idol. The science all the phrases and boom and this is not get excited men. Summer would just be straight man. I'm with you now. I think I think Almonte Kuzin and Chris Collins The gold standard and any amazes me. Because sometimes I think into the studio released stats and you're going to have this phenomena. Slaving Bab dropped this. I think sometimes as well you you might. I maybe do that. Because I'm a breaks trying to you. I know all about what mess actually the sometimes I listen to my who says I think if I just said that. She did not get hammered. Just be lying. We're in New Orleans tonight and drew brees of course one of the greatest quarterbacks.

"NFL in how much easier it is to pass the bowl with all the kind of all the rules favoring receivers and all this stuff and the fact that franchise running backs people at like a thing anymore you could end up with two who pretty old fashioned teams in the in the titans and the forty niners having the super bowl that we. We've not been seeing really that. These are just teams. That are going to be. We're going. We're GONNA play tough football. This isn't going to be just kind of like right. Sixty passes just BOM BOM bom. We're GONNA see contrasting styles any any combination of these fourteen. Four teams is going to be a lot of fun to watch like. I say. I wish we'd had the forty niners chiefs twenty-five years ago Montana young and we'd been saved from that terrible super bowl where the the the charges absolutely laid an egg against the forty niners. I think we're going to get. I still feel like the idea of the titans. Winning the Super Bowl seems strange. No because it's the titans but just because in terms of the quality that they have compared with the other three teams seem strange. And then I look at the packers and I think you you take rogers out of that situation and you know this is a foreign twelve team. Maybe if that was townhill you know again. No disrespect the tunnel. I'm comparing gaining ground. Rogers so it any one of these teams looks like they should be losing this weekend and they also look like they should be super bowl winners. It's GonNa be ridiculous on shore and it's GonNa be fascinating. Yeah I hope I hope it was it was it was crazy. That chiefs game from Ben. I'm Mike in the house of Monday. Extra video concert recording that. ESPN H.. Q. To look back at the big games break down eh one. Why they want that means for the Super Bowl fifty four matches yeah?.

"Let's start with the stock going heavy on the stock. I I think for the first time this season you and I have agreed categorically agree having right well I mean that is true but it's controversial when it comes to the fact that there are less games now and you have been nine to occasionally do the Mr Bean look over at my notes just to check. You're not playing on my relax. Promise anything to happen eight. It's interesting because there are obviously less picks up but there's an obvious one for more on and and that is of course the stack with Patrick mahomes entire recused. So Patrick behinds at Nankai. tyreek hill is seven point nine. See spending a little bit there. But I think it's pretty much which the go-to in the last game. We saw them play mahomes completed. Sixteen to twenty five for one hundred seventy four yards and a touchdown also added twenty one carries twenty anyone yet. Sorry on seven carries need more but here too interesting on that point you know. Some people have heard the shops fading. Maybe this week. Because of that because his productivity he hasn't been at the usual level. I think that's crazy in this match up as well and you mentioned what he picks up on the ground. He's averaging about that amount. I think of the six games thrown in a COUPLA rushing touchdowns last six games as well straight away you got the threat. Fading Mahomes to me seemed like a crazy play. This oh absolutely and in particular. These two games mahomes completed sixty percent. He's passes in the two games against both the Patriots. And the Texans this season with five hundred fifty six passing yards and four touchdowns two picks so between Patriots last week. Yeah the Texans who. They're playing this way yet. Applies really well and Tarraco is exact. Same Mom really goes to Houston this Greg. So we're both picking them as a stock. Houston allowed the third most fantasy points per game to opposition quarterbacks this season you look at the secondary Dabhol grazing calmly a two of the worst graded in that position according to pro football focus so the match up all across probably as is a backup plan because we are going on that as a stack. We did think as well I certainly did and we were talking about this before we came into the studio nothing like this as well. Lamar Mark Andrews. I I cannot as possible stack and of course you could as we always say with this tax substitute another one at the Baltimore receives mixed at Hollywood would be an interesting option there as well seven touchdowns seven games Andrews despite the fact. He's been a little bit banged up as well in to those Gandhi's posted multiple scores at the titans allowed the fifth. Most fantasy points to titans during the regular season. So like this matchup all kinds of reasons and if you think that Lamar is going to go off against the titans or some people do again if we're talking threat the poster boy for that That that could be an alternative here in terms of the stock. What about going big wedding going beaks for Derrick Henry nine point eight thousand pounds loss way? Can we saw. I'm Carrie thirty four times for one hundred ninety two yards and a touchdown for me if you can stop Derrick Henry you can win. He's very very very difficult to stop. An non-point I yes. You're spending a lot but I guarantee you you will get a great return love that. He's averaging almost two hundred yards per game in his last couple of games sixteen touchdowns season's he's he's already had a four in the loss game while coming into this game in maybe the richest vein of format of player in the playoffs. And they are going to have to rely on him. I think to get this go now. Some people are saying that irrespective of whether Henry can get the titans offense moving. It's not going to be enough. In the point. To the fact that against New England Henry went of big big and they were still limited to fourteen points right. Yeah that's not going to worry. A Henry taught in this respect. You have another one hundred fifty hundred seventy yards and and a score irrespective of what the team doesn't you game in reality is going to play out is safe. Pittsburgh love that decay metcalf. I am going because again playing the hot hand a little bit. I think that Russell Wilson is going to be rolling on from last week in terms of how that tandem played out a light matchup like Seattle a full stop in that that match up against Green Bay again with that receives. You could look up because if Tyler Lockett. Great player but is beaten engine is coming back into his group. Came back. Cove is going to be the go-to Guy for Wilson and I think given the issues. They've gotten the ground he's going to be airing out again. I don't think metcalf could have a big day so I'm going to decay go. Big What about avoid opposite end of the spectrum. Well anything on the six K.. As you would know by now but I'm going for it and I'm going to be in Chile Valley Valley we gotta go value. What did she say that? Avoid but you go. Well I mean stick to the system I was. They always valley here. We need a structure or the will nice guys. Crazy man off Claude. Is they say clearly also shows how much I was listening to you. let's not valley. Pa I'M GONNA interest I'll be interested in your pronunciation. You don't duke yet. Well he could shoot yet. But I would apply ASSOC Americanised respect. Well Duke Johnson Matt for forever now like I don well. He's currently with five point. Seven thousand pounds under that six K.. Margin we saw him on the weekend carried three times thirty eight yards. And all three of ABE's targets for thirty yards and taking on the chiefs in particular this canes. They ranked in the bottom seven in the league in yards per. Carry a lead and rushing yards per game. Sir Anything under six. Something pretty drastic. Is I think that if you go from five point seven two six. That's three hundred pounds in the the context of the fact that there are so little people to choose from this weekend. That could go a long long wires. Five point seven yes he might get you ten points but that ten points might be the difference. I'm doubling down ahead. Just because I couldn't really pick between the two and some of the Valley Emmanuel Sanders Call Rudolph. Both players as g says will be on the board for five and change and on can step up and get you that seven ten points both really capable of course getting into the end zone is therefore really really come and big value. Pick doc I think Rudolph I think looking at the injuries at the Vikings have going into that game question marks WBZ and hang himself in training ahead on. Bring up bad we can we go. It's just very quickly. Because it's been the Rudolph will be the port factor because of that. All the Games will absolutely be Far Rain Day Games. Incidentally go and seek out you pushed out on your twitter handle. We done as far as just only guilt me in the studio last. We can for the Vikings game the scoring play. The winning play for the Vikings caught on camera by the energy. Go check that out The Vikings UK guys a push. That out is going viral it. Well well yeah I mean yeah but still Marlboro cigarettes as far to Colorado for like manual Sada's alike as well both decent options. I think to get you into double digits for a six K.. And underpaid or we're going to void now yes mocking grim. I'm saying because of the injury only because the injury issue right so it looks like he will probably suit up and it looks like they will spare time with Gus Edwards. This is an obvious one in a way in case you haven't been paying close attention in case as you come into putting your daily roster together last minute you maybe have a look to the enacted look to injury red too much of the news. Just watch and be careful because I don't think Mark Ingram for the value that he is on the board when that was set is going to represent a smart play. He'll still get points. He'll still be a factor in this Baltimore offense but I don't think it's the right thing to do to be shelling out the dollar for him this week lock it a lot. Well this is controversial. It hurts my feelings but sometimes in the avoid pick you just simply have to do Elkin annoying I am. I'm avoiding. I'm avoiding Schiff Devin Cook. Wow look number. One is quite expensive this week. We're looking at eight point. Six thousand pants. I do think that he's absolutely worth with that in a week to week. Basis and largely. I don't think he can recreate what he was able to do against the saints two weeks right. He was sensational. Almost one hundred ninety eighty four rushing yards and two touchdowns and we've seen just how good New Orleans have been at defending the rushing play we that Russia. Exactly right He. He was William Kuntsler as we said in the game together tour up the first time anonymous in the second half of what happened. Well considering the fact that you know obviously hasn't played for some time now eh and I get the feeling my instinct. Is that the vikings almost put all their eggs in one basket when you're seeing them. Do you sing Damn Cook doing so I will you you you know what I just want to get past that first round which they've done side but now taking on San Francisco. I think it's going to be difficult. I think they'll if they've got to sniff. Certainly they'll start manages. Oh Jeez workload a lot more let massin take you know a little bit of the work. Line the Question Mark Di. He says he touched on with Adam feeling ill. He doesn't play which he probably probably probably one. Because I believe six on the foot and in football that hurts side receiver exactly so they might rely on him just a little bit more Having said that adjust I think that he's GonNa be emulate. He's excellent two weeks in a row given the fact he's health and fitness might not be what it was earlier on the season. Fast Shout Messenger decent value. Pick actually now you you come to mention it. I am so. Let's go to D. I'm gonNA Chiefs Offense Pecans. What talk about one of the most turnaround units in the game Steve Spike God has performed wonders? Image Bill into that quite heavily on our Friday shows. If you're watching this listening to pod me and Jason Bell getting into all four the divisional games on our Friday preview you put the full probably as well which is as we all know now. Huge some people divided on this game in the sense. Oh g they think the Texas will put up points that it will be well over the fifty fifty one mark that the line that Vegas has set for the over under and the chiefs will probably win heavy favorites and they won't have trouble putting on the poets and the Texas. I'm not so sure I know seems crazy to go against Shawn Watson. He will probably pull things out of the hat like you always does but I think particularly without fuller as as well. I don't think it's going to be shut out but I just don't really see the Texans putting up a huge amount here returning players as well achieve some and I think that fully fit I I think the only one of the remaining teams that had all active players on their roster in training this week actively participating so they are indecent. Nick so the chiefs D. Eighty in this weekend well for me. I'm a grain by four point sales and pans and it comes down to a few K.. Things for me of course wake off which is fantastic. Anyone new. He's capable of doing side as I suppose a few of the numbers that stand at seventeen interceptions fumble recoveries and fifteenth in sacks adducing Seattle. A capable certainly very capable of scoring points king moments and turnovers and fumbles sacks. That's what gets you points in defense and I think given the fact that I had that wake off their high time a really lock it. I think they're going to be really strong. Love it man. I realize you haven't had a week off now. All I don't I just don't know all the way through even win the NFL won't be on threes. So I'll still be doing fantasy the stocks in the books of eighties movies. Where you're GONNA be in the library 'til all hours with lows of books in front of you and it's more like I'm just I'm I'm just having a real breakdown in my in my bathroom? So you'll have all the mirrors and I'll be drawing dogs. There'll be things going everywhere and help us and all of that exactly right acting Louis stuff. Well we hope we'd give it good days for this weekend as I said at the top of the show there are games on the potty power fantasies. Like Saturday and Sundays and get involved. You can double down quite frankly but but as far as accuracy listener league is concerned. It's Sunday games. Only hope we've given you a few good stairs. Enjoy the football. We will be back for the championship. Ram would you believe we made it this far or somehow we we have to the championship round enjoy..

"I kind of wanted the reasons to be bad this year because I the FLACCO poten- you like don't like he lie. But you liked slacker. But you know he's Slack Odin all the time fared on amongst other things. FLACCO doesn't have an older brother who what he might do is a goddess of might is but but I find incredibly likeable and I like the fact that they're doing things that are doing things differently. I don't think about the quarterback is he doesn't run people's League that's all it's about it's not. He doesn't run like running back like he's you know he's got the efficiencies and stuff to do that but I always feel like. He's got on an awareness around him when you see imply that That running back Stoneham. Because it's not what they're trained to do so so yes so. I'm going to go with the Ravens here just to quit. Let on the Browns and coaching Freddie Kitchens has come in getting pumped from coordinator role. He's got that whole in good old boy demeanor and every. NFL Locker Room has a collection of superstars. Because it's that's the way the League is bill. Unlike say AH eager or the Premier League where it's heavy right spread quickly spread up roughly speaking right in the in the NFL. But it feels like this brown aside has because I guess Baker being quite outspoken character Odell Beckham just has a lot of attention baggage around him and he quotes. I think speculation could easily put certain routes to bed but dozen. And maybe that's people maybe that's him at a lot of other big names in this locker room as well. Freddie kitchens the wrong character to manage that and bringing that to towards football he take an not trying to make to global. Try a comparison but and correct me if you think wrong here but one of the success is with the reasons behind the success and say sedan in Madrid because he was able to manage this collection of have egos and it feels like Cleveland. The moment had a lot of Egos in that room so you need a certain type of coach in the NFL to handle that. I mean I think you'd you'd obviously do need need a guy who who can handle the egos what I would say. Though one of the key differences is that in football you have the star is actually probably matter more to you. Know you mentioned the down in round Madrid You gotTa Keep Your Shining Renaldo. Happy in the power dynamic is different in football because Odell Beckham fantastic important. But there's there's a whole half of the game that he's not involved in when your defense is out there you gotta get somebody to who can get on the ball consistently you need people people around him. who can run the right patterns and whatever so the the power structure is inevitably geared towards towards the coaches? Very very few. I mean it might be slightly different quarterbacks but I don't think there's any position player that can approach the the influence that a top player would have in football and so yeah you WanNa keep egos happy but prima donnas tend not the last in the NFL. Unless they've got Brady your manning throwing the ball or you know what I mean to that level. What she making Freddie Kitchens? The Pittsburgh started at T. shirt which I mean if you were an eagles fan and if you lose fans if the Eagles had done that and pizza and came out with that which would you have liked like that would use the all. Go up what are you doing. Peterson wooden obviously. Because he's a man of God but I'm no problem and it's kind of stuff in Buddy Ryan would have done that Buddy Ryan inaugurated on it. Yeah there's no you know you think it has to fit your personality you come back it up buddy could back it up. This is the problem with the Cleveland. Right they're the Baker Mayfield. That is his problem. Absolutely distilled down to. He hasn't done anything yet. He hasn't his supporters apologised. Will say well this. She's what you get with Baker Mayfield. It will come together eventually Baker Mayfield. Who wore the backing? It Up is my point if you're going to. He behaves has paved the law in his relatively short. NFL career with far too much moxie in impresses and just winding up opposition vets. And you haven't done anything yet. Oh Yeah if you rolled in first three years in the NFL and landed a super bowl or an MVP fair enough. Lamar Jackson wouldn't do it because 'cause he's not that kind of guy but if he dated on the podium prepare enough I think I always think back to that. Great Kid rock quote from the Song cokie often drove kid. Kid Rock Inspiration Kid. You probably can't say one of the words but it says you know it ain't bragging and if you back it up and teach you know as a kid fan thirty one one more for the road just want to get your perspective on the.

Well they you know it's funny but there's people there's eagles bloggers who who do that. Who Call when breakdown plays and and I I go back? You know how I go back to the football coverage for a living but you know oh look a rights violations or you put this clip on twitter right. I mean they've they've become kind of less fascist about it now but in the. NFL is kind of a free for all. And it's the best ask possible marketing. You know you've got. You can have some nerd going and breaking out film for people who are into that you can have another guy doing sort of like you know highlight reel. We all catches the helmet.

Took you about the other football and his beloved Philadelphia the Eagles Enjoy Gabon. Say welcomes ESPN HQ as we often do with our Friday guest but you know these these neck of the woods pretty well. Yes sort of live here so you just about. I'm just I'm just down the road but this is will have been here for the last five days so oh love at your company man. I am representing wait. Oh No I left my rucksack in the other room but it is I do have an official. ESPN rucksack the which can get at the ESPN store Promo Code Gab. Twenty twenty and you'll get ten percent off your affiliate. I love that. Well welcome to the show. You and I go back a fair bit. In fact I was remembering the first time we probably work together telling the store the other day you might not remember. This is one of my favorite stories so I went back in two thousand ten eleven twelve round then and we will studio football and lot of Europeans and I would normally do the Bundesliga With Rafeh and you would do our with with Jimbo much but sometimes we mix and match P way so we FUSCO match together. The furrier ventures game early kickoff in his be in studio and I remember the producers said to me. Not This is not the Bundesliga where you kick off off with military precision in the Bundesliga in Syria. A little bit looser. There have been a bit more relaxed. So we're going to have to feel a little bit. We don't realize until the last minute. Oh they're about to kick off. Depending on the pictures we get so you just roll with Gabon. And I'll let you know so that's exactly what happened. We were just chatting away and having very nice pre game chat and rolling and then suddenly late slightly panicked producer. Marisa go so I gave you what I thought was the wind up and he carried on talking. And Kinda was a little bit more exaggerated with it. For the benefit pocos listeners will move had started winking more house. I do not recollect this. So you need to be restricted carry-on Toki didn't miss supposed to do remember. Yeah I think that's what I said like cutting told me now is the one with sufficient to me. You said if Gob Gab of got to cut you off there because the game is about to kick off more from God more time but Gary Events as Palmer whatever the game was and through the calms we're underway and you just let over to me said man. I'm so sorry you're trying to wind me up I thought you had a twitch with yes because that's exactly how I sound like. That was quite a good ball coty. That's Nice I'm nothing like back of our listeners. WHO SURPRISED NFL fans? I've asked the question. Now you come on the show. Oh you American. So why the American accent. Why the love of the Philadelphia? Lv Eagles so the accident. I always wonder what's the alternative because I should be talk speaking entirely and like in the in the DIS men for the media because we all talk no I mean the reason I have. This accident is simple. I I was born in Delhi at the age of three. Start moving around the world. I Live a little bit in the US. A little bit in Japan a little bit in Germany. A lot of fun us a little bit in Poland A little bit here and I always attended American schools and then I went to university in American Graduate School in America hence my accent and the eagles thing comes from so I follow the NFL as a distance was very young and lived in Chicago so nine hundred eighty five. It was hard not to get into. I get into that and stuff but you know when immediately before going there. I live here in London and obviously I was. I was very into into into football. Aw and and then I moved to the states and all of a sudden I kind of am living in Philadelphia and and I see the same patterns to football to the NFL. They're th I mean in the way the city lived at the people had over here in other words. It's you know you play your game on the weekend and then Monday and Tuesday. You're kind of reflecting back and then Wednesday you start looking at your opponent and relatives. The two other American sports enjoy watching you know. Eighty two games in basketball hundred sixty two games in baseball. It's just one after the other the other. You don't have that build up in what I what I love and came to appreciate because it also educated me more as a fan was the fact that I'm You could spend that time understanding the game better thinking about it. Better appreciating the game. Better you know at the weekend I'm not married what we had in football over here and there were two other factors which was going to fall in love. Almost immediately with eagles was. Was that on Sundays. You know you would wake up and you see all these people walking around in eagles gear and I know Oh. It's an absolute cliche about sports. Cutting across socio economic classes and whatnot. But you saw this after the Super Bowl right you had you know oh hedge fund managers with their private planes and you had people coming out of crack houses and you had nine hundred and you had cops and every single kind of of race in this society. That's actually in many ways. More polarized is this is something where at least at least as far as eagles are concerned. But I I imagine it's the same especially in the northeast of the United States. Maybe in Chicago Miami. Also in Cleveland places like that. You've got something that really does give a real sense of community that was huge and then the other thing suit to was you know it was it was ninety ninety one and you had that When I went to when I moved to Philadelphia and that was Randall and that was unbelievable? Defense whereas Hopkins Andre Waters. Eric Allan Jerome Brown. Reggie White Clyde Simmons Byron Evans Sets Joyner. Willie Times are going to go through the whole team. Golick hits that was spent Herschel Walker Buddy Ryan here because you it was it was it was it was the the end of the Buddy Ryan. The end of the Buddy Buddy Ryan started rich. KOTITE era sadly But uh it was the city stop and that was also the year that Randall always seemed to get injured early in the season and did had all these random quarterbacks came in and then finally they had Jim McMahon and Jim McMahon of course. It'd been the quarterback nineteen eighty-five or the fares and Jim mcgann was talking about somebody. He's literally late. I mean he shouldn't be out of out of the house. Every sympathy can broken broken. Everybody he could he could. Hardly there was basically like there was a stretch once these were He. Basically didn't he went like six weeks where he didn't take a single snap and practice because literally couldn't move and then he's out there and and it didn't matter because the defense was so awesome if you really have to do anything other than sort of hand the ball off and then randall will come down plastic man and you know this is the year after what I think is the greatest play and in the history. It's not the greatest player in the history because it would have been last year but at the time that Monday the United Football against the bills. When you remember Bruce Smith who's WHO's this monster the size of a building right and he's so fast and he goes was and he's about to tackle Randall for a safety in the end zone? There's no possible way that Randan Randall. Canot he was there except boost. Smith's so big did he blocks out the sun and I like to think he sees the shadow and he says it's gotTa be Bruce Smith. Nobody else could have gotten behind me. And he ducks down in. Bruce Smith goes over him and then he goes and he's throws the ball eighty yards to Freddie Barnette and I mean that that got sealed it for me and I was actually that was before I got there. But but you know there was one of the highlights paid over and over and over again so so. Yes and that type of esque apology reference with with Ronald Car. Cutting of seeing the the twenty nine thousand nine hundred rations now the number of players at Lamar of course to show. What's in it? Maybe in particular I think somehow keeping plays alive when they shouldn't be kept alive. Yeah and I think there's there's kind of an eternal sort of debate about this whether whether it is a good thing to do because when you keep the play alive or you know you can you can and do with Tom. Brady does which is just all I just fall over so I don't get hurt. We'll actually no let me. Just call you or you just fell over so I get to roughing the passer because somebody breathes on me. Suppose would suggest he just lit litsch harvest at two this either side to keep the keep these his supporters can do one but I always wondered what I worry. Sorry about this you know we saw it with our own quarter Carson Wentz. Do I know he's big and everything but the other dudes are bigger and many of them and when you escape when you create something out of nothing look he did it last week. I'm very grateful but I always link on. What if you get hurt? You know that. That's so terrified show. I guess it's about getting the balance right. I don't know as I it's interesting inching because you hear about how analytics has come in big time in football and you know they have like a chart of onto goto fourth down and all this other stuff. What what do you tell? Your quarterback like knowing went to scramble went to go for that extra yard. That's got to be something that I think is so difficult and you have to make that decision in a split second gained and your competitor. I'm just glad I'm not making it. I'm just glad I'm just a fan. I can just sit there unlike my day job. You know I have absolutely no professional involvement and and and I mean it's it's an escape for me as well I suppose. NFL for Christmas. Saturday games. Come into play winning pickle. They call the Games a little bit later on and oversee key quite heavily on the small matter. The Eagles cowboys Saturday Games. And then you've got the mats in nine nine days. The season gets sorted out right so US made the playoffs. And then you have black Monday. Straight off to the final game of the season when it say Gracie to to quite a few quite. What if you coaches some more obvious than others so looks pretty clear that for example Doug Marrone GonNa go Coughlin outlaws twenty four hours? Moreno be out the door Jacksonville. As well Jason Wise coffins around what you made in football generally yeah. Well I guess horrendous. I mean her horrendous football to watch not a pleasant person successful land well he wasn't when he was young one of them was as a stupid playoff. The helmet down the hand. There are a lot of luck. Teams have lucky breaks okay. He's not my favorite coach coach in the NFL. Dimension Him Jason Garrett Oh my God when he basically. AFC East coach. You dislike out of. The Eagles. Like Peterson obviously Okay so now we gary it's different. So what is it about guaranteed. I'm like we'll guarantee Princeton guy which which you know my Alma Mater Penn.. We competed with Princeton for the Coveted Ivy League title and don't Laugh Their Ivy League players is in the in the NFL. Not many over the Years Ivy League player. He is one. That's right. He went to he went to Harvard. You had the Cottam banking on his name. He was really good the Columbia. He's retired now Marcellus. Wallace is that the taking one of those. Those dudes went to Columbia. They hadn't won a game like a million years. I think they had won a game for digital. There's a great podcast hunting. Telling this guy's is whole story about how like he could have gone to Stanford or how much tennis whiny yeah. I've cool so he was. I mean again. I mean he was a serious. NFL Player wasn't so you know it wasn't like Jay fiedler. Or whatever or Keith. Elias fits anyway is a quarterback. Yes you know. That's a slightly different right and super smart and whatever and he beat is this year so I'm house thirty better in the NFL. Right now. Watching fit scramble for a ten year old kid. I don't know oh how.

"Why are we take a game over that but the more the NFL and baseball over here and it becomes a standard started part of the other? Sporting Leagues is it just inevitable primarily will do it eventually in the state I think so one hundred percent. I mean you look at the amount to tours in the matches in the friendly stuff that's been going on the past few years in its utility increasing on the flip side. Those Games is in those matches draw tremendous attention so end of the day. This is a business and the owners WANNA make money players WanNa make money. So where are you going to make money honey. You can't just do the same thing over and over and over and over. You really have to move with the changing times in adapt the innovative and that type of move would be. I think it would be tremendous. I completely understand the perspective that people don't want to take bear sport over to America but there's a lot of games during the season so in a couple of games internationally. I mean who knows it's cut. We'll take a car about cup game over like a second round Caravel Cup but that's the problem there. Isn't you got to do it. You've got to bring the game in terms of the players. I mean this is always the issue Nfl Europe in particular or the exhibition games that we had back in the day. Just wasn't you didn't see any of the stars it was just the backup so if we if we do it you've gotta you've gotTa take You know take the list is over D. Think that that there's obviously an appetite life in America and it's a changing country right so that's GonNa continue to increase d think that it will wear will will football end up saying fifteen twenty years in the states in terms of the the pecking order of popularity. I think it's going to be at the top or if not at the top it'll be very in it's already very high up there but the NFL's having a lot of issues and the safety issues the the contract issues up. There's a lot of stuff going on in the NFL that is going to continue to gain momentum so if you look at football and and the most popular sport around the world in how many kids play football around the world in how many different countries I think it's inevitable. The popularity of it is is growing tremendously in America and you see more and more premier league games being televised on our main sports channels. I can I turn on the TV on a regular day. WHOA there's a game on if I'm not schedule your like? Oh this is amazing. Never saw that in the past you would have to get a special channel alert. Goes to a sports club bar. Whatever to watch the Games and now it's just much more accessible so I only see that trend continuing to increase? Britney you beat on my part over the years a few times but since we've moved to. ESPN this is your your debut appearance so one probably go into with you before but for the the benefit on your listeners since we moved to espn your role in what is still a very male dominated world and you know you. You beat a real trail-blazing phoebe phoebe sector of course was on our show earlier in the season. It's remarkable what she's achieved in terms of breaking down barriers in in the NFL. But you were that before. Right Right You on P. Carols coaching USC back in the day. Though now that far back in the day just a little bit back on the you know you couldn't maintain that In terms of how you've parlayed into athlete representation in different ways which he's still very much a male dominated world and obviously being with some very big strong characters from different in sporting world. It it's a it's a tough you noticed it changing or changing for the Besser in in recent years or is it still a tough to navigate. Gate is as Abba before I think that for me personally. You know now that I've been in the game a minute. I have established relationships And you know I don't run into all of the same things I run into when I was first starting to break in but for me. When I first started building over sees internationally it was very challenging because no matter what I could say about my work in America in saying I worked with Ezekiel Elliott? In Bo- all these people people. They had no idea who they were so it was almost as if I had to kind of start fresh and the second time I guess the third time if you look at the steps I've taking my career You know I've been through now. So I have an idea of how to navigate how to build that reputation but it's tremendously officially difficult and even working with individual players as hard because a lot of players have had issues with with females in the past. And so they're super super super private and they don't want any pictures and they don't want you to get in trouble with their wives or girlfriends or whatever just because of their own previous behavior and because of the way that I look and because the fact I'm a female they communicate with me in an act differently with me than if I was a male and that's always a big challenge and insurmountable problem that the minute call me because you're doing well but I mean how. How big a problem is it? I guess the key to that. Those kind of relationships ship saw honesty and relaxed with each other particularly the feels whoever's representing him. So yeah how do you get around that well. It just takes time to to To build in to develop a relationship entity like listen. I'm a professional have been doing this for a long time. I completely understand your concerns in you know a lot of times times I'll say I WanNa meet your wife. I WanNa meet your girlfriends like I'm here to help them as well the athlete and whoever he is with that's his family so the best way to deal with that is to you know. Hey look let them meet me in realize that. I'm not a threat like I'm going to help the female as well as the mail. You know my job is to add value value to my clients lives. So that's probably the easiest way to get around it and you know if that doesn't happen it's just a matter of being consistent and as you said being honest in communicating and I always respect you know the players perspective in at some point when they do begin to realize. Okay she is trustworthy. I can you know I don't have to worry about any drama coming out or you know. She's actually very helpful to me in terms of if if the man has issues with a female like I can actually help deal with that situation but all of that really just comes in in time in developing the relationship with with the player in really building that trust. Yeah Yeah it's interesting and and and I guess that's the key you know to so much. The operative word is all about all about trust and by extension. Is that me too. The way that you tend to get clients is overwhelmingly by word of mouth pitch to represent somebody. How does the the prices office of signing on in securing a partnership with an athlete work? It happens in in many different ways. Obviously referrals are the easiest in my I favor. It waits get clients because if it's coming from a trusted source than you kinda leapfrog several the initial steps of having to get them to you know having to build a relationship in develop that trust so referrals are my absolute favorite. If it's not a referral sometimes I will L. Pitch Client I. Will you know. I'll see a player L think wow you know I can really help us player in so I'll reach out to them and then it'll either be me meeting with the player or are pitching to them. Or they'll put me in touch with their manager their agent I pitched to them And sometimes players reach out to me it really just. It's all different ways that what you get new clients But he that must be hard. When when I'm going to start to do uh-huh the air how do you? How do you break that? Either you just have to be ready straight and just a there's not much academia. I'm really straight. I've always my personality if you know me. I'm very straightforward and honest in all I'll always speak to a player but out straight up. Say Listen. This isn't my space i. I don't think there's much I can do to help you or or I'll try to refer them to someone that I think might be able to help them. You know it's it's just it's never easy. I don't like to do that but the end of the day. Our our time is one of the most valuable things that we have. So if it's not worth the time on anybody's part then I'll be very straightforward about that. Brady always great to catch up with the real pleasure if our listeners one of volume more and find out more by social media where can they had now accompany. INSTAGRAM IS AT B G Sports. NTN T- INC end. That's also twitter. My personal instagram in is just at. Bg Sport and that's the same Is Twitter as well.

"The list at number five I've got a tie between two guys who don't make some lists Bert Jones from the colts because his career was very a short injuries and stupid Colt Management. That Kevin Player was but jobs. So you're Jones was in the seventies basically Make they insist. Just I'm playing Mardi Domino's from Columbia ahead of Bir Jones for a couple of years on the colts Sunny Johnson who again was a backup for Washington and When they went to the Super Bowl and seventy three I think it was played in the playoffs in seventy four but not in the Super Bowl And juergens and strangely enough is probably the best passer certainly has the best relative faster rating of any of the guys on the list at number four Warren Moon who tops a lot of lists and you nothing against Warren Moon is all fame But you know if you count. He got to a lot of grey cups. If you want to count that Mike at number three is Randall Cunningham. The great who who came within one Gary Anderson Miss of a thirty eight yard field goal and it was the first miss of the season for Anderson against Atlanta from going to the Super Bowl and if if he had made that kick Chris Chandler could have been on our list I have seen and cutting him as one of the rare cases. Where a guy who had a really good regular season record not a losing record regular Bula season for his career? He's like eighty eighty two fifty two for seasons. So he comes in at three at number. Two is Philip rivers. Who May May? Hey Be overrating on this But rivers is an awful lot like Saudi Jackson in the sense that he's a really good pure passer Who Doc holds in the pocket which hasn't been able to get to the top number one is another guy who's very much like Philip rivers and another don? Coryell chargers connection Shen Dan fouts and fouts was probably the best pure passer of his ear. You know after Juergen Sanmen was was Dan fouts. What's that Dan Marino? I think you know in pretty pretty soon. You're pretty much up to Philip rivers as as guys who are pure passers on good teams but just can't quite quite get past. Last fouts came very close to get into a super bowl but just could do it and I think I think I'm pretty comfortable with him. As being the number one I saw Jay Cutler on some lists and thought why not Jeff George you know yeah I don't buy much as As you well know a lot of time Jay Cutler will we see Baker Mayfield on this list of we shoot for years. It's actually interesting. That's an interesting one. Because because you know Mayfield Mayfield one although saying Mayfield one is probably miss. Is the title the match up with Josh Allen in that Battle of the The number one first round picks from the two thousand eighteen draft. And and this Sunday you've got an even more interesting one because he goes up against Mason Rudolph for this. Does that even this Thursday. Sorry goes up against Mason. Rudolph who was the next quarterback pick after those four guys in the first round in twenty five guys is in the first round in two thousand eighteen But not until the third round and Rudolph and rivers a Rudolph End Mayfield played each the other three times in College Mayfield in Oklahoma and Rudolf Oklahoma State Rudolph One beat Oklahoma as a freshman. But then Mayfield came the next three years Oklahoma one that. But here's my trivia question for you in the NFL. The Mayfield. Rudolph battle stands ends at what stands at what it would help if I understood the question. WHO's one when when its head so well based on what you just said Baker Mayfield? It's one one actually a sneaky question. Oh sorry sorry. Excuse me now that out out under the steelers at five and four an impact the second uh-huh we just drop in some music. It's funny I sat there yesterday.

That's what you should know everyone that does ratcliffe big fan right the giants fan him on you know going to work on that thing not on that book you come back to if you want later on if you want to think about him book had come back Okay and we will try to remember I will look at Harrow approach the end probably in my bruised rib just add insult to injury or let's get into this is game Mandy La Rams and the bengals and in particular the rams because I think we both feel it's going to be fairly plain sailing for the rams and even with the vagaries on the game and the travel and everything else that shouldn't be a complicated day at the Office for mcvay and the question is given the blips they've had this season and the obvious problems they got compared to last year can you see the rams heading back to the book and you see them winning the NFC championship I think it's going to be tough I think when you look at the NFC just how loud it is right and I think already I could say New Orleans it's San Francisco Green Bay by San Francisco I am I think that built to last night s bizarre is that we would never have thought that in the season the off season and and now we'd be surprised if they're not right there or thereabouts of the the everyone's getting a little bit carried away with Garoppolo falling off a cliff I know he hasn't exactly been instrumental in the success but I think his relative stability yeah just needs to be stable in that with that running game more offensive line they've lost both tackles yes I think there's three he likes right there before you even get to the rams and Minnesota as well you'd put in that after Seattle always know how to win just didn't that day and night be compared ZIP the only way I get the rams a chance is there are too many good players on that team to completely disappear ah whether that you know let's not even start with our Donald Elvis but you've got brandin cooks you've got Robert Woods I think the jury is definitely still out Eric Golfing you've got again with God let same identical similar thing to Garoppolo we tend to collectively overreact shorts but yeah we do happen to hit a very strong season last year we do also I look and I think we want to show mcvay such hi there are trendy team yet I think we want to make excuses for the rams a little bit whether there's no Todd Gurley the same as last year you'll still an NFL quarterback jared off you still should throw for more than seventy eight yards against the forty nine but I would argue that that was a pulling the performance but I would argue look Brady against the bills for example happens to the all time greats that they have bad there's no I know that there is no comparison that I'm not making a comparison between those two but the point being that everyone has a bad day Goss- had a few bad performances this season is clearly not in zone yeah it was last year I think my problem and this shouldn't be so much about perception can't get that image of him looking terrified the head of the Super Bowl and he looked absolutely like he was gonna pay down his leg in the superdome yeah and he did step up and he goes into Super Bowl however they got there they got their findings margins as well as people pointed belichick's misdirection right before the snap and other just fine cheating in the super bowl but the finest marches in that game really yeah but you missed a COUPLA throw yet mister wide open touchdown and then it was through a poll one at the end that got picked off this team is talented enough to be in the mix they've added Jalen Ramsey I like clay Matthews Aaron Donald of course for me is the best player NFL. Do you like the Ramsey deal for the for the Rams I like that you know it's just a different way of doing it isn't a lost their last first round draft pick was jared goff Yep was that two thousand sixteen and the next first round draft pick at the moment where we two thousand and twenty two right doing a different way and it's fine to different way because you always gonna hit on the draft picks show people Marcus Mariota was going to be a hit when he came out for Tennessee has it happens happens all the time like job was on the show last week saying fifty fifty you know look first round pick if you're dealing T for Jalen Ramsey who is an elite player next ten years probably in providing these states will be at that level then it makes a lot sense plus the cap spaces while they freed yeah just that she down five million tonight still I don't buy that kind document as well and it's a narrative that we have I also questions when I'm in the studio with the guys all weather might have him for a year and you know he's a gamble there's no way he's not going to sign with them there's giving him some leverage now because they have to sign up so jalen Ramsey the businessman is going to take advantage of that of that and he's GonNa Laugh all the way back that's what I want is the same with the cowboys in Amari Cooper gone off the boil a little bit this season but that's kind of the idea that what I loved about that deal was Mario Cooper if it played out yes you gotta pay him but you're going to pay him because it played out and you know the is a proven performer. I I don't mind the way they're building their team and I think and yeah that is trying to win over the Los Angeles don't think it's the main thing I think the main thing is that's just how they see they're going to be aggressive they believe in improving players and I wouldn't argue with that so I think they've got enough talent you know we haven't talked about the weaknesses girly is not the same play goal is not the same player Willie ever be the I think he will be I think when you have that kind of degenerative knee thing I think there's only one side because I really like dynamic player he'll have his moments like he did last week against the Atlanta is not always gonna be he's GonNa get takeover games and be the centerpiece and the.

I didn't have any anything very inch with Kurt Warner ahead the Panthers Bucks Game I suddenly thought for our sky coverage you it'd be great if we just got him to talk about what's going on with Jameis Winston Yep and who is Dalla so I just sent him short mcquaid tax can you come down from your network booth pre-game Yuppie down in five minutes yeah comes down and you do it so yeah I'm very fortunate in but in that aspect of those tours of really kind of yeah and a great relationship stealing you're absolutely right you spend the time and the great funds while I think obviously when you're angry and did the sky coverage and I find this as well depending on the show so we can you know different styles different approach and you know you guys have a lot in the studio b different to say apart and it's different to do a live show and I think what comes across from you'll live shows in the fancies just how fun they're funny Dan reading let loose again just roll with it because you you you do that to a degree on on TV yeah but you still have a structure and you still have to move on and you have time limits and this is what the late night games was so much we were so lucky to do that because we could get almost put your feet up and to see what kind of the point of those shows spoken about this over the years and was talking to Michael Even to call in before before me on those how lucky we were that we had these disparate window where right suspend three minutes stinks series analysis could be wants to do three minutes talking about off favor character and the why are we the people who are with you with a dedicated to be with you so you will forgive you that that trend I guess they are so much fun to do I even like I'm doing the tailgate stuff Wembley Stadium again for the next two games you fletch do that Darren Fletcher I love I think you probably see as well you when you're when you're talking on TV I know I'm talking to the people at home but I just see a red light camera so it's nice to actually out and about this season exactly yeah you just you can loosen up a lot in certainly do that in the live event we are lucky I think as well the fairmount football too but NFL like user was being my number one thing I'm a I'm a real passion but the fan base we have this is committed so literate loyal engaged and it's just a friendly crew isn't it I think we're lucky is as NFO UK broadcasters to have that yeah uh-huh and you see that I kind of knew that anyway you see that with the live events things you read on twitter could be very is leading competitor actually meeting people and you realize how warm they I think it is a real community family couple of times I've really seen that obviously it first brings people together I saw it when Kevin cadle died yep it was almost like twitter gave me a big hug big was that way and as you know back in the last season through this off season my wife had breast cancer thankfully she's kind of she's all clear now and ridiculous amount of support from the fans it was just and I put it out because I feel people should know how the people should get checkout stuff so no true show would be going through and it was amazing so emotional to see that support and it's yet we can all talk about our team and all that but it just shows you genuinely feels like a family always said that now on the on the the difficult your family said I know you would never accept this because you you know you're forty modest respect for how you went through the level that you work and I think maybe fans underestimate that we were talking pre studio city when they're alum that game's going on the ground that you and he just plowed on head down super professional about massive that we're going to talk a rams in a minute of course round pick the games also it up against the Tennessee titans of the world but before we get to that do want to just find a bit more realized that over the years obviously I've what's a lot with call and ask might speaking of those old school shows was was always a big part of that and we'd find out a lot about Carson because of it and you do so much broadcasting but like me you're asking the questions you'll be and maybe a fence that know enough about you at fire a few questions right so favorite player will time Dan Marino I'm marina that's why I became a fan yet was what you name in eighty the three sides eleven and my dad used to watch all the highlights all the time I used to complain and say why do they just plow up the middle for one yard he was trying to explain it to me and there was highlights of the dolphins raiders and there was commentators making all the fuss about this rookie coming off the bench and he was going to be the next big it just got me interested obviously eighty four he went off yes I was allowed to stay up watch the super bowl because it was a school night did you go American this is radio and I went I sneaked downstairs and hid in the whole wide with my ear up against the door and by saying listen to the first three-quarters genius as Montana ripped him apart and then just sculpt it was done didn't get rumbled that is great I knew where it was because the route to the it was a different kind of around the house a different way so I was in worked-out sketched it out no way my that was going to come out the way I was against honey bad smart stub Morita same with me same with me on the Marx brothers and you know it's amazing the things that you remember as well John Offer Dow always just it's Jim in wants me number eleven number eleven because he was the third string quarterback but he was just this slow white wide receivers or slow watching just personality doesn't have to be a player that has been that that kind of wild pinch me moment so all that context Jim Kelly was mine and again in a dissimilar things when we're doing live games you know you have a rough idea if he's coming but sometimes you might get this person sometimes they'll say you're the commission is coming up in your best the Ad Right Kelly for me for because he was our era his kids and always loved him as a player but everything he's dealt with the field is an absolute here Sakano and also Mick Luckhurst Larry supposed to sink so what about you so you know this guy breath because people is polarizing figure people either love him or hate him can't help but be energized when you meet Ray Lewis right and you spend time with with Louis and you know he was assigned did a forty five minute one on one with with right I worked with ray around his last year going into the office and leading into his last year in.

"He's he's a hell of a plan at nevertheless if you look at the mathematics and the draft capital he was you know a late eighteen round early twenties type pick so the steelers are effectively saying we can be a playoff team. We're giving up first-round pick. That's the level we're anticipating. Oh would this guy's GonNa fall in now. Roethlisberger's calm down so they seem to be backing Mason Rudolph as well but it didn't work for last night that I'll talk about Rudolph but on the Fitzpatrick. I didn't know what the steelers were doing at first and I gave it sort of a second. I I'm not sure my second and third looks at what Pittsburgh would doing it made anymore said spot upon reflection they they're they must be playing the long game here net and they must have liked this sold watch you mentioned that he coached by Nick Saban at Alabama the Alabama Clemson in her one and one eight for college football powerhouses and Alabama puts more players in to the NFL then then Clemson does at least for the time being but not they must've loved this player so so much that they thought Miami is selling everything. Miami is a as we call it in North America garage sale so they're getting rid of everybody and everything that's that's not bolted down. Let's get him not just for two thousand nineteen but let's get him for twenty twenty one twenty two and beyond. I think the commodity was so great and I thought the price was reasonable enough that they must have also thought well. Here's a guy that's been in the league a couple of years. He's only twenty two or or a year and a half. I should say better to get him now and not risk risk arrival. Getting one of the Ravens get make Fitzpatrick. What are the chargers. Do what if what if the chiefs too so. I I understood the logic there now. That's the positive of where Pittsburgh Mike Go. The negative seems to be that yeah they had a load of opportunities to win that game against the forty niners and did not you do not lose too many times when when someone turns it over as much as San Francisco did five turnovers the two interceptions fumbles that were lost one of which was Garoppolo one of which was remote oester running back. You have to take better advantage of that and it's something Mason Rudolph though I didn't think the past pressure was tremendous for San Francisco he just seemed to be under duress a good chunk the game and yeah the the James Connor fumble is the critical thing but for Pittsburgh. It now looks like a lost season to me. I know it's on the road. I know it's different time zones away right now but that's the game if you WANNA say go on with Cleveland and Baltimore and say we are in this division and don't give up just because we've lost our or iconic Hall Hall of fame quarterback. That was the one you had to grab yesterday now. You're fighting behind. I will say this. I got five the next six games at home. bengals Ravens Dolphins Dolphins Colts ran similar to what I was saying with Cleveland if they could somehow someway after eight games after the end Games get back to five hundred they've given themselves. A fighting chance can't lose one or the next two. It's probably not going to happen and if that happens and if it is indeed a season to to write off what does that mean for for Mike Tomlin Super Bowl winning coach. Ah In an organization that doesn't change like the change their head coach. He's very often. It was one of the things we love about the steelers just the the jira ability in the time that they give the head coach seen this greg cover so many different sports you love you love our football and we see it time and time again. The teams is that hold firm and don't make T- changes too often as far as the coaches are concerned typically the teams with the most successful over time and the state has a You know the poster boys choice for that but do you think this might be enough already. As far as Mike. Tomlin's tenure is concerned Pittsburgh. I could see that's an interesting question. I could see a mutual parting of the ways or at least it's scripted that way and that's that's quite okay. Mike Tomlin doesn't have to explain anybody that he's a good coach and steelers. Don't have to explain anybody. We're we're really good franchise. We we ended up treating people the right way we may even give them given what happened last year with some of Antonio Brown and so it just became too much and and look at the heart hard stance they took on Levy on bell. That's the cowboys would not have taken the stance on Levian Bell though there. I'm not saying the situation exactly the same as Ezekiel Elliott. It's not what Pittsburgh took a real hard line last year and your rights three coaches three head coaches since nineteen sixty nine chuck knoll three hundred forty two games coach. Bill Cowher two hundred forty games coach Mike Tom. One Hundred Ninety two games coach. They all have a super bowl so I think it's all all of a super bowl title and obviously chuckle has multiple wants so I I've got this theory eerie and it's an interesting one that that you know can take around a bike around your head for a while after we broadcast that have you left any starting quarterback and any head coach alone regardless win-loss record and circumstances and gave them eight years the results would often be better than continuing to change and we talked about this in the AFC that the Patriots Patriots love the chaos of the jets the bills dolphins new coach New quarterback. It's it's it's like a washer dryer system for your clones stocks tumbling around and they're over and over again and they lose each each other and New England has that one constant which is Bella Chicken Brady so I could see Mike Tomlin not not wanting to be part of something that rebuilt but I could also see him digging into in a big men's healthy or they want to go and other out of quarterback saying I'm all about the loyalty factor here and I've had chances maybe to put my name out there before I bet you my Tomlin's the coach next year unless Pittsburgh just says this is finally now the time to tear it down and start some things Dover but like I said when they trade for Fitzpatrick they're telling you they're not about to consider concede on on the seasons just to come yeah yeah exactly and Ross buggers said he's coming back next season which is a market different from how he's been in a lot of recent seasons over the last three or four. Here's when off seasons when he's talked about. Maybe it's time to hang them up so interesting times for Pittsburgh. When all is not lost as you say put a run together and suddenly that what three and four oh five hundred halfway through the season anything is possible? Let's have a quick by on a couple of the other front sets. Teddy Bridgewater much more composed post performance from him. No surprise there is he said he was one of the one of the better backups in the NFL and I think you know what you get with him. we ensure. Peyton fate outside how Assad a little bit I think going into the game saying that he might have to navigate factors star trek and tastes hill was going to see a lot of action as well but it was bridgewater. The got the majority of the snaps of course thirty three twenty seven it was a thriller against Seattle but the Saints Wade improve to two and one. What's your prognosis about New Orleans with brees. He's come back at some point remember. He's not out for the season in the same way. Big Ben is you'll be okay. Do you think yeah they look like the Division winner there to me because Atlanta's but so inconsistent assisted and we talked about Carolina's struggles earlier as much as Carolina sort of bounce things back a little bit bridgewater was very good. What a clean game. NO SACKS NO INTERCEPTIONS. He threw the ball when he needed to. We can't forget that Seattle Pass Rush. It's it's not what a once was. We're talking legion boom but they do. I thought they rushed bridgewater water fair bitten and and again bridgewater's guy that really only took off the one time to run in eleven yard run and he had two carries for one yard on the other carries so Alvin Kamara Dr was was back in the ninety two yards receiving he might be. I think it's Christian McCaffrey Nat and everybody else. Alvin Kamara might make a case for as a dual threat back Jack Second Best Guy in the league. I mean he had a hundred and sixty. One yards combined touchdowns through the air touchdown on the ground. I think New Orleans GonNa hang in just fine at I didn't have them as playoff playoff eat but I also did see some of the chaos happening with with Cam Newton not being healthy not being ready to go didn't see you know I think Philadelphia starting one and two we would've locked them in for the playoffs so the NFC playoffs as we said AFC. You look like you do who five of the sixty s might be the NFC eleven teams probably could have been playoff off teams and you'd you'd. Shrug your shoulders go yeah. You could make the case for it so love where to that he's racist. She's looking at the other contenders in the NFC. The Vikings getting things back on track with a win over the rate isn't woody cut cousins need that often in the falcons just a prototypical of their season so far going to at twenty seven twenty four aw to the Colts and Matt Ryan Looking Lights out at times but throwing another pick at a crucial stage. They got the running game going a little bit more but a not where they need it to be a that's been a big problem for them. This season Julio Jones stepping up again but they've got brady receiving core him in Ridley insanity but the nor- naught turning it on consistently enough so well frustration. I think there's a lot of concern in Atlanta and I when it goes for some quarterbacks and again lifetime Dolphins Fan Dan Marino fan you start to see it though he'd have his moments. He'd have good gave back gave good series. Matt series. Here's another one we talked about. Cam Newton the the spiral of Matt Ryan is concerning right now. He leads the League interceptions after three games asking him to do a lot. I wish they could ask them to do a little less and I know five incompletions incompletions yesterday so the quarterback ratings grades and eighty five percent completion rate but it's some of the past is he's hitting on a regular basis and even how he was most last season eased we saw his. QBR shrieked too. I think it's the lowest level that had been in six years and it's lower than that three games this year so I think they're going to get good Games for for Matt Ryan Nat but Atlanta would be well served to do exactly what we've been talking about some of these other franchises and it might be time for them to think about drafting his successor or trading for his successor. I know he's not even thirty five yet but when it goes it can go quickly and I'm worried it's going to go quickly. Matt Ryan here okay interesting just a quick line own on Josh Rosen and look focus Miami and the jets respect to be.

"Make these kind of booze it it does reverberate through the locker room often exaggerate remember when the Patriots got rid of lawyer Milloy you had the guys Tom Jackson on ESPN. He's lost the locker room ever again. They'll never have a winning record well. That didn't turn out to be correct because if you know what you're doing and you're players know you know what you're doing you can do stuff like that. I did think it was kind of trolling the NFL when they assigned tank Carradine who they had cut earlier in the year and then and then resigned as everyone's accusing them of tanking when you sign a player called tank yeah. I think that's worth a laugh or two today as the old Matt No. I'm pretty sure that I through Miami Fish Tanking Olo before what else whatever you're right. I mean yeah that that is a good one. I've learned well. I think you should have trademarked done show. There is some kind of some kind of Brokaw honesty record that I go to early does on that and I liked the fact that you referred to Minka. Fitzpatrick is a steel in the draft. He's a steeler as well so that was particularly that's fine signed but the question with pittsburghers and they gave up a lot in this in this in this deal is do they need a draft pick for a quarterback back and had a really good point because wrote. This bug is being token up the retirement game for a couple of years. Isn't he said now in a statement he was gonNA come back and and this to me he's like pitchers injury his elbow. It's like when a pitcher strange the elbow tendons and while pitchers elbow and needs the surgery drian comes back stronger as a result so that's that's quite possible and and they did they did basically exchange a V for fourth in that trade next year. Her fourth-round is is sort of like backup quarterback territory as I was saying Riley arouse weeks but I think it says that they're probably going to stay with Mason Rudolph if not don't go going on there I can't see them trading for Eli Manning mob big on Rudolph and the locker room as well and it was interesting for view the Place de Castro is one of them is obviously a season while vet was very very yeah Rudolph right after the game and again I I think they have to adjust their offense a little bit because with bandits he can stay in the pocket for a long time and then move out of pocket and make plays happen downfield now. I think they need to go to a little bit more or of a quick set. plays where where you're scheming receivers open more quickly rather than relying them on winning one on one battles which when you have Juju Smith Schuster and Dantonio Brown you know is easy to rely on it's kind of like the packers under Mike McCarthy as opposed through the pay packers now you know where where they're trying to use those kind of schemes to to give more reads to Aaron Rodgers rather than just letting him hang around and then wait for a guy dot com open mic quick one on this or associated point they wanna get the Jalen Ramsey situation. I'm you mentioned earlier on with Flora's a new head coach retaining hating his defensive coordinator. Gt's and obviously every head coach and less you'll tell me there's an exception which there probably is but typically a head coach disease progress from either offensive defensive coordinator special teams position to that to the head job and thorough on the benefit of our listeners out that the new to the NFL this season getting their head head around it. We'll talk through how it works when a team has a head coach that also takes control of one of those areas but still has on paper anyway and offensive or defensive coordinator alongside them. What does it what is the role of the latter? If the head coach is to call the shots it varies team two team because you don't know what goes goes on in meetings and you don't know who actually is in charge of the game planning unless it's the Patriots the short answer to that is that when you when you get a new head coach coach especially when you see young one and they keep or bringing an experienced coordinator on one side of the ball or the other the assumption is always that that coach is going to leave. Give that side of the ball to the coordinator think about Sean mcvay say in Wade Phillips coming in as defensive coordinator for the Rams so wade. That's your business you know and therefore the coach can concentrate on either being a head coach or McVeigh's case being the offensive coordinator as well A- and game planning but but you know the the head coaches in some instances a head cheerleader in some instances more like the head of the CIA in terms of looking looking at looking at tape and you know and and making making impenetrable statements about what you are aren't going to do in an ultimate life ultimate reality were you more likely to be a head shade or head of the CIA by God I would've been would've been the head of the CIA type coach. It's funny I was looking at some bill. belichick tapes tapes to about 'cause I knew he had a funny story about Zeus Orlando Brown who I'm going to mention later on and I are thing and he's talking talking to his son at the beginning of this clip and he says you know we've all played for coaches who are jerks. I was thinking I played for the same jerk UTICA play Jalen Ramsey. He might have something to say about Doug marrone on that on that tip based on what we sore on Sunday extraordinary stuff therre Costa to going at it it Maroon showing restraint Joel for for ad coach and Ramsey who of course is one of the the playmakers on this Jaguars team gave it right back at them and then sure enough twenty four hours later Jalen Ramsey wants out of Jacksonville. What do you make your this? I think I think it is and I said earlier I had never been convinced by the COUGHLAN marrone regime in Jacksonville and I think they've they've made sort of knee-jerk decisions and reactions along the way they've misjudged a number of things along the way and they were lucky in retrospect that that young defense played as well as it did not it they played eight extremely well but they had a lot of lock in terms of turnovers and defensive point scoring when it looked like they were the great up and coming young team but then when that didn't happen. There's still still a good defense but when when it doesn't happen that the defense is producing to cover up for your offense they didn't really have they don't really have a solution there so so the week before you saw miles jack going all. WWF on Lousy lushness now you've got jalen Ramsey going WWF on marrone roane. I mean if we could if we patch things up. Those two guys would be a great tag team with Marrone as their manager remember when when yeah exactly it looks like a baby so you know. I don't think so you watch him play hardly a baby face. Maybe they'd be that that kind of new mets the era of the meant to be heels. Everybody loves them. Yeah I mean I would make I would make him like a wining. He'll you know who complains cheats constantly complains that other people are cheating when you remember when Doug marrone played for the monarchs the offensive line on that team that won the world what will cry the nasty boys yes after the wrestling the wrestling tag team so doug. Would it'd be a great a great fit for for that he's crazy Mike that we mentioned clear on who was the poster boy of being an authoritarian coach. I mean you know we've spoken to to. OC and Jay Bell about some of the stories playing under him and just how regimented an officious he was so it's quite interesting that the Jackson really undisciplined. I know he's not the head coach. He's not in a position to he's not in a position to do that and and I just don't install install with him in many respects those well yes and no is with him because of his influence on marrone basically but I think dogs the guy who's the point man for all of this and and for whatever reason he hasn't been able to sell that brand of debt or put it this way once a team starts to go downhill as they did last last year in the last what was it eleven games three and eight and Alaska when when the team starts to go downhill these these cracks start to appear when you're winning those cracks ask you know they may still be there. The feelings may still be there but you keep them bottled up because you're winning and everybody is is theoretically happy. You know I I my own. I had an undefeated season where there were some players. I literally did not like and and a couple who were actively undermining me personally in terms of relationship you should with coach that didn't matter we were all winning two years later when we were losing and had a Doug marrone type head coach who just started off it became a big thing and you know that's not essential to win but sure helps when your team is all on the same boat. I mean Jamal Adams now. They're saying you know has taken the jets off his instagram feed Insta- Mesa a snapface whatever just instagram and drop that was very belichick in your view yeah thank you and again I think Adam gays it doesn't have that authority hasn't built that authority to be able to get get players convinced to stick with things that don't automatically appear to me. Working in Kigali does certainly certainly he's not responsible for Sam Darnold Mono but I think I think what you saw from from the passing primate Trevor Simian and then from drew walk was was the kind of actions Luke Falk Walk Sorry to that maybe there as well the way it was for the jets yeah I mean it's tough to keep these guys but for knows the system he he was in Miami. You know when when let gays was there and gazes systems I keep saying is basically one that that keeps the quarterbacks throwing safe passes and it's given him this reputations of quarterback whisperer which is completely undeserved and and you know I think right now the jets are in a heap of trouble although they're going to New England so that's not going to help but all I think faulk may well be a better. You know a better fit than people think to get them through a couple of weeks till darnold it comes back and of course with Mono. You just never know when he's GonNa come back. Let's go to the mailbox. There are some questions about the jets unsurprising. Mike Mike Top five How do we start speaking of the backups that have come in as a good one here in terms of who the question is which projected new starting quarterback who will fare best us ten month Jones Rudolph Folk Teddy the tough one because you find success in the situation from success? Your best bet is Mason Rudolph because Pittsburgh theoretically is a better offense and they have a good offensive line is the the best defense out of those four. Isn't it yeah you know who will be the better quarterback long-term I did situation. WHO's GonNa who's GonNa Perform? I mean yeah folks. I think it's easier. It's easier to project Rudolph coming up with decent performances within that with with that team if if they can adjust the system to him teddy bridgewater. I've got a lot of faith in but I'm not sure how the The saints adjust to him Jones. I think is a good prospect but you know he's in a he's in a world of hurt right now. who was it it was Kendall beach him at the jets who said who said that the jets are now a world of suck. Doc sock is a great the world of suck. We've entered the world of suck. I might start a band called world. Suck Mike is that is that's. That's exactly okay. Here's one from David Richards.

What about teams do next the Miami Dolphins fish tank dealing minkah fitzpatrick that superstars stars to Pittsburgh so much more about as well to get into that with Mike for male back on five picks as well looking forward to catching up with him?

Let's get on with it to get into with you got to mail bag as well a bump now back from a loyalist the show if you want to questions in an incident long and we will save most of them for a Wednesday show with a big man and Tron sure on route through as many as we can top five as well stop five absolutely the top five craziest reasons for guys going on injured reserve. I like it I like it or we'll save that so we'll save the best I say until the end I want to start with the big story breaking though the last twenty four hours ally manning the giants finally benching that time superbowl when a moving on to Daniel Jones of course the selection of raised more than a few eyebrows with the giants picked him high up in the draft this year. Are you surprised the price might the giants have made the switch so soon into disease in a way yes but when you think about it no because he lies performances been underwhelming wing we discussed this earl before the season started and I think they did the right thing by starting Eli because you don't want a quarterback controversy when you bench Yulong in terms starter in favor of rookie the best way to do it is to let the starter play if he plays well you win and if he doesn't well you can put your rookie and and you shouldn't be criticized sized for it now in mitigation of all this and I know that when you watch Eli play you just think well his arm just isn't what it was really really doesn't have it now but that team Amos so bad on so many levels you know he had no receivers to throw to his offensive. Line is still a mess after they spent a huge amount of money on at the defense is not the kind of defense. It's supposed to be really saquon Barkley their only weapon of of any consequence so it in a sense. It's a little unfair the blame Eli but at the same time why not quit your starter in apart from the idea he might get killed just way Eli was 'cause he's not as as experienced as you know standing in against the rush getting rid of the ball or taking a pounding she li- is done over the past few years you know we've had so much like a revisionist or reversion back to the idea of taking a young back letting them sit and watch you know the way Rojas did on the farm and many more before him I the NFL seem to have moved away for thrusting young draft picks. I draft picks in to the arena. Fawzi's sued that seems to have balanced out in recent times then could see wisdom here with the giants are going to be very good this season. We'll do a serviceable job for a team. That's probably GonNa Finish six and ten let that new sit hof two thirds of the season learning watching shing being guided and then come in for the for the Taylor when he's just got a bit more awareness and knowledge of how was what can they surely that there's more oh to lose here by bringing them going to be a playoff team this season. She said he could have the starting out his confidence completely short exactly that's that's the real risk and we've seen it before with quarterbacks back to go into bad situations and and suffer setbacks to Shawn Watson jumps to mind in recent years but Daniel car David Car at Houston as well would be another good example. I think part of it is that the coaches have to have an idea a better idea of what thirteen can and cannot do before they put this kid in and so what you're asking him to do now is to riot raise his game up above the level. All of the team and Jones. I think is a guy who the question was wasn't whether he was worth a first round draft. Pick question was always whether it was worth the number six pick back from from the giants and whether he would have still been there at seventeen had the giants not taken him you know would wash instead of taking him instead of Dwayne Haskins kids. I rather doubt it how rationalized that might because he wasn't able these draft picks that have that mock drafts in rank Nicole Jackson often disagreement with a few Dave Dave cattleman said two things one of which is is a bit hard to argue with one is when you decide. This is the guy you want to take him. It's not worth running the risk of losing him to someone expected. Did you know someone trades up that you weren't anticipating to grab him. Whatever the second bank elements said was he he fell in love with Jones during the senior bowl when I watched the siege all uh-huh quite a bit and I didn't really see anything to fall in love with you know what you saw at Duke was a guy who again playing in an overmach team most of the time I did pretty well with quarterback coach who are coach who was the quarterback coach away manning when he was in college and for Mate Manny when he was in college so I think that that that was probably part of the impetus for drafting him and the question I don't think is whether he can be a good? NFL quarterback questions whether he's ready to step in in this giants team and so it's it's a risk but again the only thing you're risking against is losing and oddly enough though going down to Tampa Bay you would think the giants have somewhat of a shot brought down there yeah obviously do the mouth bag at the end of the show the bumper and every now and then when a relevant question rooks up and this is a good I'm from rock cash appreciate the tweet wreckage at the NC show. If you WANNA follow suit is this the end for allies because reading all on Daniel Jones can eli bouncing to another gig Jacksonville possibly reunite with his old coach shoes now see running the show that Tom Coughlin. It's very interesting because there's been a number of trade rumors about Eli teams that are losing their quarterbacks. Pittsburgh was another one that people were suggesting might be interested in him and the the point being I think if you put him in a better situation with with a better line and more weapons you might see a better Eli and certainly on a in a short passing assing kind of game that would not be unreasonable to expect. I'm not sure Jacksonville is that situation. We saw minhsiu running around for his life at times last week and Pittsburgh could well be although I think they have to get Mason Rudolph his chance in Pittsburgh to make that work of course benching Eli now sets off in the what the world's second-biggest Internet controversy for the next week or so as you know whether Eli is elite whether he belongs to the home not that one has been running for ten years and it will continue to run certainly for at least five years beyond his retirement when you and I have definitely gone back and forth on that in multiple times over over the years where a revised your opinion on that because you're not convinced fame right. I'm I'm not and never was when you compare him with the two guys who came into the League at the same time which was Ben Rothlisberger in Philip Rivers. He's well behind those two in terms of passing efficiency now in fairness. He's the only one who's efficiency goes up in the playoffs. Although he's still behind the other two in in playoffs he has two Super Bowl rings which is biggest selling point for the whole accounts for ahead of them does indeed but it's never counted for Jim Plunkett and I think there's a pretty pretty good comparison between Eli and Jim Plunkett particularly in the way they win super bowls they they were both guys who were not afraid to take risks downfield and that's been Eli biggest characteristic heuristic is a quarterback. I think it's a very short memory. he can throw too bad passes he can take a horrible sack and he'll still get up and go for all the marbles on the next play with no no fear whatsoever and I think that's probably his strongest characteristic as a quarterback but I right now I would say I only see Ben as a hall of Famer neighbor from that group and I think that's because he's got to wrenches well with one of which certainly wasn't responsible for front but he he's also got a more efficient career and that and the same kind of fearless risk-taking big player potential that ally has I think rivers is has actually a harder debate and band or ally yeah. I agree what how much the new element plays into that is very. He's got help is incidentally. I might you got me. You got me curious now. That's the second biggest conspiracy around this week. What's the biggest? I'M NOT GONNA say it. Just can't be in trouble now. You mentioned a injury situation in Pittsburgh across bag out for the season drew drew brees at traveling back to Los Angeles at hand surgery. NFL DOT COM is reporting ligament of course on his throwing hand as well so beds estimating six to eight weeks majority of the of the regular season might yeah thumb ligament for for drew brees on on his throwing hand so that's that's that's a tough one because the rehab for that takes a long time in that you just every time you move move your thumb. It's at Sharia back back so so it's it's it's a hard it's a hard one to overcome interesting situation there with the with with the backups because Teddy Bridgewater Water didn't look didn't look particularly great but I think what they need to do is adjust their offense bit for Teddy Bridgewater. who's who's WHO's more of a sort of drop back passer and is also a different guy from the one who came out of college and went to Minnesota where and Mike like to near was very good on this the other day we went to Mike Zimmer where you're basically asked a handoff and keep your mouth shut and then bail the team out when the hand when on the handoffs don't work but I wouldn't be surprised to see Tastes Hill playing more snaps at quarterback they they used him for almost the.

"Favorite spy over seventeen or eighteen points he was the the underdogs cover however I think it was like seven times out of eight against the dolphins specifically ords nanny game and just any and he just he and I don't think I think he's bill doesn't have bad John Harbaugh instinct of running up the score necessarily although Brady doesn't lie to come off the field not right but you can you can you can take that what you will with. Ci Yeah I was stood him as well. He wouldn't wanNA. He went to relinquish any reps. I'm sure tool what is going on in terms of the scoreline his firm Gaza Gaza says as neutral what possible good reason to the giants have for not giving the ball to Saquon way more than they did versus the cobblestones started in exhilarating fashion saquon. It would seem to tail off and he just wasn't given enough action what was going on that 'cause. They're chasing the game. was that the fool the opposition they think we're going to go with our best. I weapons have been go ahead. Go with someone else. you know if they had a better set of receivers I might I might say that makes a lot of sense but they're wide. Receivers are not particularly threatening Ebony Ingram is it you know is a good pass catching tight end but Barkley looked like he was you running in great form and I I'm surprised not that they didn't give him more carries with they didn't get him more involved in the passing game he's gone from. Ayman appreciate the the question aiming at the NC show if you WANNA fall asleep and vitamin throughout the course of the week and Alex and Tom and the guys on social media will be picking him up and we'll try squeeze him into to one one of the shows what is the NFL stance on tapping players up while still on the contrary different of course to to European football sense that it's not near as legislated. Is it yeah I mean. You're not supposed to there's not supposed to be any interference with the player while he's under contract which is why people were guessing that the Patriots might have contacted Antonio Brown before he was actually released by by Oakland and suggested he might WanNa come here the the reality is that generally know these things anyway his agent drew. Rosenhaus would have known that the Patriots were interested in Brown because they offered Pittsburgh a first round draft pick the year before before him you know when when he became available but print but Pittsburgh took a lesser offer because they did want him going to the Patriots knowing knowing the Patriots were annually their competition for a playoff spot you know or or a super bowl spot even so adult anyone needed to tell drew Rosenhaus at the Patriots would be interested in having a piffle now. Wait a minute yeah. I think yeah there are ways around ways around the rules. I think is what was saying. That seems to go going regularly just as it doesn't in European quite frankly all right. Thanks for all of those questions. I we're GONNA wrap up. Today's show with what we agreed top. Five free agency picks top five free the agents. It's it's an interesting list because and the guy at the top is the guy who it kind of pivots around because when the new free agency rules came came in when when players got free agency then it became a different kind of situation previously when when free agency was a kind of thing where you'd been ignored by other teams so oh my number by number five guys. Dion Sanders right right 'cause Dion went from Atlanta San Francisco and they wanna Super Bowl and then he went to Dallas and they want a super bowl. that's kind of hard to argue at number three is night train what about number four number four sorry scary. Zimmerman who came out of the USFL and and then went and played in two teams finally Denver and yet was was a for two decades he was he's on the all decade team in the NFL for two two decades plus he was all USFL a great free agency. Pick up There's a lot of guys obviously unless I like guys who no other teams didn't want and then came along guys like say Mike variable or John Randall but they didn't make the cut number three's night train rain lane. He was working in a factory in Los Angeles had his last Football Gig was with the Fort Ord team in the US army and he just went to the rams office with his scrapbook and said look. I can play football. Give me a chance and they worked out like one day and said Oh maybe about simpler times trying gets a double double dip on the show today yeah he does and number two is Johnny Nitis who was playing for the Bloomfield Rams in a semi pro league around Pittsburgh where they the fields were so bad they had to put oil on the field so the dust clouds didn't make the players invisible then he went to he had been cut by Pittsburgh he went a to Baltimore and obviously had huge career with them a number one is the guy who was really the first big signing when the new free agency came in when players were allowed to become free agents and put themselves on the market and that was Reggie White and Reggie white obviously came out of the US Sevilla's well with Philadelphia went to Philadelphia in the NFL and it was like Lebron James People forget that he he basically made a whole drama out of where he was going to sign and Green Bay was sort of like the least likely replaced shall we say quote Unquote Non Urban Situation the packers had misguided reputation and he went to Green Bay and obviously the result was instantaneous. he was dominant there. They won the Super Bowl there and you know I think that was probably the the biggest effect free agent of all time because it also also opened the door to other players who said Oh well. I can go to a team Green Bay. You know an and have a good time and put all their so reggie. White Outta sight the a trail blazer our site indeed. It's reassuring as well to hit. Johnny nights is one of the legends of the game was overlooked by so many people love stories and Reggie white nicknamed the Minister of Defense. That's another one you know. Nobody said hey minister but it was an integrate nickname anyway legendary stuff cracking work. I and Mike speaking of legendary stuff. It is brilliant tap you as part of the gang this season and if this was Wanna get into more of your stuff. The best goes your Paci on column right yeah.

"Oh yeah well from the team and honestly I think thank the dolphins defense had a lot to do with that. They really did look lost in space and we were talking yesterday and it was and he was saying what is the strongest part of the Dolphins Dolphins pro team probably overrule but certainly defenses that secondary and and the secondary was just at the racist to know and they really. I think that Bryan Florez to WHO's basically that sort of defacto defensive coordinator from southern and he's got a very young staff you know Patrick Graham was coaching assistant last year now. He's sort of the number two defensive guy I think they went with the same kind of game plan. That would have worked with Baltimore last year but the Ravens Laban's came out knowing that Lamar Jackson was ready to be passing now. Andrew Jackson was taking his shots at all those pundits on the websites sites and whatever who said some of whom were like X. NFL general manager said this guy will never play quarterback in the league. I will draft a wide receiver or running back and as you said his passing was fantastic but but I know that. Rg three came in with six for six Joe had reached down on supported him. Bring him in to to be honest. The game was done by the time you're absolutely right the game was done by halftime and of course they were up thirty five three in the first half and they ran a fake punt for the yard and I immediately well he tweeted. Everybody Hates Bill Belichick. What about John Harbaugh. I mean he doesn't but everything was working for them. Hollywood Brown is Marquees player player as we say andrus headed one hundred yards receiving mark ingram at one hundred yards rushing market. You know still going strong. Hey Mike speaking of Hollywood Bradley Jay Bell on the show on Monday. We were discussing great. NFL NICKNAMES Hollywood Hollywood Jay Bill Hollywood shame. I won't quite yeah. Ucla La but you must have a few in your locker. Greek we cover mean Joe Greene of course he was in the mixing time favorite as well. I think discuss installs a great is a great one as well time favorite my all time favorites Hacksaw Jack Rental Myron head McRae iron head Haywood is a good one would like that as the best Alzheimer's nitrate late night because it sounds so ominous it goes with his name RC Allieu Owens receiver were is another good one and of course although it's one of those names that you know nobody ever said Hey Bambi Chimaera but but lance all worth's nicknamed Bambi suited him just just absolutely perfectly. EEO In that category of the names no one release Andre Reisen Andre bad moon rising is one of the classics of all time love. We Mike when you play in college or was that it's not apply to the irony. Mike played call nine. Never an onfield nickname which you probably they were referred to you yeah when my when my office coordinator referred to me it was generally and four letter words doesn't surprise me. Lamar Jackson we we were talking as well Monday and Ali our producer getting into over-reaction Monday and typically. Everybody loves wants to get semi hysterical and make sweeping statements that one of my favorites was off. The Patriots are going to go on beaten nineteen ninety two nine yeah. That's the that's the when the Patriots generally lose in the first four weeks of the season and we says you know Belichick's lost the team. The locker room hates him. Autoclave Brady's GONNA retire but another one another one is Lamar Jackson and We were the critics wrong about him. He's the real deal how much carried into that on the Ba- technically I suppose and given how poor the dolphins were and the challenge in all kinds of ways when he's up against a much sterner defense d think his his balance in terms of attributes is apparent now that he's just taking can time set acclimatized to the NFL his passing with Encarta. His passing was good and he he reminds me he allies me in a lot of ways of teddy bridgewater on the bridgewater was was a running quarterback but they have a similar kind of passing motion which you see a lot of nowadays a lot of these younger younger quarterbacks coming up with with a tight arm quick release kind of motion which I think homes from running in option kind of offenses assists rather than the drop back motion where you were. You see guys wind up. You get that perfect form over the top of your head yet. This is this is a kind of you know from behind the ear and then throwing it out. Jeff George had that right back in the day and he threw pretty accurately. I think what will happen is when someone game plans to stop that passing game. We'll see if they go back to the run game the way they did. He only ran three times the whole gay. I didn't need to obviously but you you know it could be that if you stack up to stop those receivers then you're going to have ingram and gus and and Jackson if they need it running through you it's. It's a really interesting kind of situation. They've got that big offensive line plowing the way ahead head of them and they've got a pretty good defense with a great secondary although Jimmy Smith as usual is out now with a with a sprained knee so I'd make the Ravens before the season starts. I liked him a little bit more after that game knocking to take part in national jump to conclusions. Nice I'm beating the ravens a nineteen speaking of quarterbacks only running three times and we may be expected to see it happened a little bit more. Kinda Marion is in his NFL debut competitive debut anyway interesting performance room so I the only ran the ball three times passed over fifty times horrendous I off for them but an extraordinary fourth quarter for for Kyla Murray so he really turned turned around which I think is what has given Arizona fans the most confidence out of a aspect of his performance that he showed a lot of Moxie and a lot of steel and didn't completely the implode but food is way back into the game yeah. I think there's a good piece to be written about former bill belichick defensive coordinators when they become. I'm head coaches I think Detroit kind of went into a softer defense in Arizona took took advantage of it and as they say it's a game of two halves although in Murray's case it was a game with three quarters of ordering the last he was he threw for seventy yards in the first three quarters and then and then for two hundred thirty eight in the in the fourth and I think you see why Cliff Kingsbury was so in love with him and why his offense will eventually I think the work in the NFL because it was it was creating those openings that Murray was able to throw to a whole lot of contested passes what was encouraging to me was David Johnson had a had a good game in then when their offense was was having trouble you know he ran the ball very well and then and he became a receiving intres- as the gate as the game went on went into overtime and the other part of it of course was that Terrell suggs had a tremendous game gone Straw Adams for loss with the Kings Offense Mike and you know I talked about the accentuation of of the of the PAS against Detroit. was that partly a statement from King speedy thing. Was it a tactical decision up against that. Detroit defense offense. We're GONNA see more of a balanced and we're gonNA see CONNEMARA being given free rein to run a little bit more. What's your instinct on that. I I'm not sure if Marie running is the key thing and and you know there's there's different say between chip. Kelly the kind of option offense chip Kelly Iran in the NFL an Oregon which was which was largely dependent on the quarterback being able to run and the air raids style that Mike Leach coached cliff Kingsbury played quarterback under Mike Leach which is much more a spread the field out and try to get mismatches man on man mismatches you can take advantage of David Johnson. I think becomes the big mismatch in that in that offense and the problem is simply. If if you're defensive backs can man up and cover guys just like fits and bird and and Kirk and Keach jaunt Banou keyshawn Johnson it creates it then creates problems is for you but the way that NFL teams would attack it at first. Is You have to lose protection in order to spread the field and get those receivers. There's out there so they attacked by attacking the quarterback and Murray's got the mobility to be able to extend plays like that. Go beyond that that quick I I read and find a receiver and that's where if it's going to work in the NFL. That's what the secret is going to be. I don't think you could run that. Offense say with JOE FLACCO at quarterback. You need a quarterback who's mobility will extend place all right and so we are going to back into the mailbox. We'll ask you questions from our listeners and then you're gonNA give us your top three free agency pick up some time Okeydoke. It might be more like top five but there you go you will let you squeeze squeeze a couple more in Mike all Right. How about this from John Assist. How many do the pats beat the dolphins on Sunday and that is of course given in how impressive nearing looked and how woeful Miami looked everybody expecting a ridiculous score but we all know happens when these teams by even these incarnations nations these teams at the moment. It's not always plain sailing for New England might be closer than everybody is suspecting Mike it could be although the the first instinct distinct was to say if the point spread goes down to two figures you might then take the dolphins law about the dolphins but there's also the Bryant Flora's connection to exactly that's that's that was the first of the two things I I was going to suggest is flora's may well know how to defend New England better all especially the way they live. They block in the lie that way that they're blocking schemes work. Although this is a different New England offense than last year rights yet wide receiver oriented not tight end oriented oriented on the second thing is whether Miami offered bothers New England right especially if it's like last week when it's temperatures in the nineties with high humidity and your team your team can can run out of gas. You don't put the game away early but where he was the weather in Miami Mike. You are you a fan. I'm not a huge fan of really hot weather but but you know when you go down to Miami in January or February and it's beautiful weather and you can go swimming and that kind of stuff we could it be with the Super Bowl right so you're going to the Hawaiian shirts and be sitting sipping a Pinochle by the pool. I've got mired in ready. Now you know because I'm not certainly not going to wear them in the next few months here from Senate Tash for that suitable. I I saw somewhere a stat about betting this game when the patriots are.

"Some extent what they got he runs hard he can carry guys on but he's also pretty versatile like like Lynch was was underrated as a as a sort of pass catcher he he couldn't run all the routes necessarily but he had good hands and and Jacobs that's what they wanted and that's what they got and I think that was part of the key to their success against Denver. They protect Derek off the coast did you you beat me to the punch and I think that that was the other thing and Trent Brown at right tackle. You know that that's a good part of it. Because there's von Miller coming off the edge and not getting anywhere are and and we wondered I wondered at least how Brown would fit into that line moving back to the right side and Tom Cables coaching but they did a great job of giving car time to find find receivers he was he was very efficient and although Joe flacco 's numbers looked pretty good as passer rating was very high but they didn't seem to have a whole lot of imagination on offense offense and you know they weren't able to really challenge Oakland until in garbage time as it were Mike impressive because spot on in terms of analysis his but also showing suitable restraint for not dropping Joe Flacco when you when you mentioned his name the first time this season on the show yeah he so flacco I'm and after the game I just always get that thing with with with Joe Flacco that he so laid back that you know I'm I'm I'm I'm sure he's cooked fully committed on and my just wonder how much that gets communicated to to the rest of the the staff but I think Denver Scott Denver's got a tough challenge coming coming up now wish to with the bears coming in and it's basically Vic Fangio Bowl coordinator last year. Yes it is Vic Fangio a Monday night football doubleheader of courses we can the saints beating the Texans CNN's narrowly drew brees easing. He's wildly old smarts of course in terms of that CL- management to get the saints over the line. What were your key takeaways from this one might well. You know you can't let will lutts. Try A fifty eight yard field goal at the end of the game. It's always going to get you trouble. I thought one of the one of the strange things was Carlos. Hyde look strangely reinvigorated Nora for for Houston and I liked that and do and Duke Johnson I think I you know I loved his pickup. I think that Hopkins is unquestionably the best receiver in the NFL the best cooling that now the number one yup given given that everybody you know knows he's their their number one pick for every pass they throw Jim about the fact that he can make these catches while letters that are so quickly contested and Kenny stills obviously had the big touchdown catch which was that the key thing for me? Though was J. J. Watt. It didn't do anything they kept. Jj Watt off the off the the stat sheet completely no tackles no sacks no pressures and that was an achievement. Ryan Ramczyk Chick. I think we're primarily responsible for that and Alvin Kamara picked up you know basically where he left off last year so that that's good and my the funniest thing though was. I saw somebody mmediately after the game pointing out that what's his kick was quote quote the longest field goal in the last ten seconds of any season opening game since the nineteen seventy merger jets not necessarily like the first record you see when you walk into the hall for that yeah these fray then put above his mantelpiece cheap. The thing is this could be Deshaun Watson. He got sacked six six times right even with Laremy Tunsil there. They didn't do a great job of protecting him but lost season yeah. It was a lot of those sacks that he took on him. Wasn't they city the six. How many would you say I think that's a pretty good. That's a pretty good point. he does tend to hold the ball and look look for receivers and he also also tries to keep plays going so you'd think of Russell Wilson for example keep getting a lot of sacks because he does try to keep lays going and I and I think go. O'Brien wants him more to throw the ball away then then take the sack but what you got was enough big place to keep used in the game to put them in a position where thanks to the penalty on the extra point. They should have won it now. The Texans had the jags up next this Sunday. I WanNa stay on quarterbacks actually in fire a two or three based on their weak performance. Let's go to the jags I would nick foles desperately sad going out in the game with a broken clavicle so he's going to be out for a a prolonged period of time enter stage left Gardner Minhsiu he of extraordinary Mike Calls and eight zero facial half starches not many people he just got the idea that a lot of a lot of NFL finds a fair amount of media rather over scrubber scrabbling around a bit more about God dementia but he demonstrated composure it he didn't he might twenty to twenty five and completed a couple of touchdowns almost three hundred yards decent passer rating very difficult that to assess on the back of one game but so far so good. I think he's very relaxed. Is One of the things like Nick foles is he played at East Carolina Carolina right and because of his redshirt year he graduated so he had this graduate exemption where he could basically transfer anywhere and Alabama wanted him to transfer in and he would be the third string quarterback at Alabama and he was all fine with that 'cause he thought what he would do was have a good time and then become a coaching Assistant Sistan and go into coaching and all of a sudden he gets this phone. Call for Mike Leach it Washington. Stay Leach basically specializes in taking these one in done quarterbacks who flayed elsewhere and lead says you know do you. WanNa be third-string at Alabama or do you want to come here and lead the nation in passing and he threw like six hundred sixty passes for Washington state with a seventy percent completion record and and it was a huge touchdown at the twenty nine to three or something like that touchdown interception but because because he's a smaller guy without a a rocket arm he wasn't not many teams with that interested in in the draft and he went till till the six round what he's not a bad fit for the kind of stuff John D. flipper wants to do when you think of fools running a lot of those run pass options. It's not quite what the Washington State air raid raid offense is but but it Scott similarities in what you saw from him was he was making his first reads really quickly getting the ball out quickly and accurately and and that is a good step forward now. It's going to be more difficult as the season goes on teams realize he doesn't have the really strong arm and therefore the the the slower slower developing deep patterns aren't going to be something that they they need to worry about but they could do a lot worse considering some of the people that have been through that quarterback position or not not least last season than men Sean. I see they traded for Josh Dobbs from the steelers to be to be a backup in Dobbs is so what different kinds of quarterback but I think they'll look at him as a guy could put in if men Joel if been sean stalls or if he gets hurt and he would give them uh of kind of running running option and get that offense moving. I still want to see more from Leonard for net in that in that team. I think that's that's that's kind of the big. The big takeaway for me and a lack of discipline once again is well malls. Jack Getting objected to after days off the getting paid that was great that was WWF VW APPs. Don't hold me back. Miles Jack was saying it. I think you have a steel. Chen and been on the sidelines some point trying to wait out. It was a moment who who was it. no Eric Weddell for the rams had one of these things were guys knee went into his helmet. The helmet cut him on the forehead and of course the foreheads where you bleed in wrestling at I was waiting for one of the announcers just they've busted him. Open busted him open when but you know we were. I was talking about Keelan dos last week you remember you because because he refused he had not left the jazz to go back to Oakland so what had happened was the jags offered him. The full rookie minimum on the practice squad so he said fine. I'll stay here so then. Oakland came back and said we'll give you a three hundred thousand bonus plus. Pay You the full rookie minimum if you come back onto our roster and so he said Okay I can live with that so instead of getting like eight thousand a week on the packer squad. He's now getting almost eight hundred thousand not a bad deal made some good go key the plenty on actually for for newer listeners on listeners new to the sport that practice squad is is a reserve pool right so you're right. It's a reserve of Pool you are eligible to be taken by any team in the league but you don't have to go so if you're on the practice squad in Jacksonville and Oakland calls up and says hey I wanna put you on our roster. You say now rather stay. I'd rather stay in Jacksonville squad which is why teams pay guys more than the practice squad minimum to keep them around sensitize sensitized to twitter for the first time on today's show Gary Red drop. Hey Gary the NC show. If you WANNA follow us on social media incidentally facebook facebook instagram twitter same handle that might kiosks. What's the biggest injury impact two teams playoff chances? Nick foles tyree killer of course his her shoulder in Kansas City. What was actually yeah it was clavicle. Bowl wasn't it because both guys hills was a more serious injury because he dislocated the place where the clavicle joins the sternum. Turnham was creating problems with blood blood flow and and and in his above his lungs and stuff like that but I think the loss of falls is obviously obviously more crucial to a team they they went the chiefs went into the season assuming that they wouldn't have hill they thought he was going to be suspended by the League and so they drafted Nicole Hardman who's tyreek hill clone. You got a little bit of play in the game there but you know he didn't have much hilden that much of a factor before he wasn't much factor before he went out net game so. I think they'll be able to ride that out mentioned. It depends on Menchu obviously if he if he surprises is everybody then falls but in general you know your new quarterback coming in who had played very well in his you know the what the one series or two series that he got to play. That's got to be the bigger loss stay with the twitter one more. She will do a few more later on. If we can squeeze in from Darren you'll appreciate this and just check where rufus is right now before us. This dog barks whenever someone mentions the J. E. S. T. deem okay well.

I think is going to be even better because a lot of the matchups in the second week are going to be hard to pick one way or the other. I was very good picking the game straight up one of course that was quite trump interview at she. I was very good. They love me. I'm great. I'm great yeah you know and it's sad the way some of the haters out there. I love what I love of about having you on the show and Mike well aside from the obvious is when we do a call out for questions on social media. I might get your questions in. US still after all these years answering those questions before we could actually pose the tree up to garden but then again most of the most of the people most of the people listening will probably probably have missed those those answers of mine mode that no right yeah you absolutely on the button. Mike a ton to get into. I WANNA start with Antonio Brown the latest hist in in that saga on the field anyway. It's worth mentioning right off the bat that breaking news overnight. Brown is being accused of sexual assault. a lawsuit also being put forward a federal by its former trainer accusing him of sexual assault he denies those allegations vehemently and of course that story will develop over the coming weeks. I want to concentrate on Antonio Brown on the field phenomena of course since we since we spoke on the gift that that keeps on giving yeah extraordinary stuff over the last seven days or so with him ending up in in New England and it's it's quite probable really that post host the Super Bowl. We were talking in groups retirement that one of the weaknesses of the Patriots this season might well be they're receiving core with the addition of Brown on it seems that I got one of the strongest in the NFL well. The transformation in the receiving core was fantastic. Josh Gordon came back. They Jacoby Myers. They seem to have picked up a real winner. They're gonNA GONNA roll chefs. Gay looks like he'll fit in but brown was sort of the Cherry on the top of the cake and what's what's difficult note right now is that they traded Damaris Thomas to the jets just before the news broke about Brown and the lawsuit and my suspicion or or my best I guess is that he will wind up going on the Commissioner's exempt list now the question would be when that happens he was going to practice today. Wednesday for the first it's time with the Patriots and if he does that that kind of weak and sad group a little bit although as we saw last week or on the weekend it didn't really the matter a Damaris Thomas wasn't really wasn't playing and Jacoby Myers had had one catch on what which looked really good so that that's going to be an interesting they won and you look at the productivity of the receivers against the steelers. Philip Door set had his best game as a patriot. A couple of scores absolutely touching hundred jarreds handelman consistent is ev six catches for eighty three and as you mentioned Josh Gordon Remarkable Turnaround Story. He has had a month ago we want. Short Josh Gordon Who's going to ever play in the NFL again here. He is week one a touchdown three catches seventy-three odds as well look people making comparisons with with Randy Moss for for obvious reasons the Oakland Oakland Connection Brown must that is but I think in particular that the way that ended up for Moss in near England underline the fact that Belichick doesn't take can he nonsense and that's the key isn't for irrespective of the story that's broken overnight a which has an unpleasant situation outside of the eccentricity of Antonio Brown the ratings with hot air balloon only other razzmatazz unknown benefactor not gonna put up with any of that is he no and and that's why I think they think that the price they're paying which which is the signing bonus of nine million in and then the rest of it. another six is is basically contingent I think they think that's fine. They're total salary caps for receivers. is is actually less than that at for Sammy Watkins on the ramp so I mean they're not in bad shape from that from that point of view. I think there's a better comparison between Lane Kiffin and end Jon Gruden Mazda how they deal with with you know high high tempered Prima Donna receivers which is which is what Brown this and you know like I said I think the the case itself is not going to be resolved for while it's very interesting one as to why they filed at this specific time and it was filed in federal court because it's it took place the the allegations are took place in a couple of different places in different states and this one's gone a run for a while because it's going to be a public relations nightmare before the case is actually decided one way or the other. You mentioned nothing in some respects. He's being treated quite harsh. When you think about the situation he's got in Oakland. It's not a strong team despite their their opening night win of course is the sunny contender this season they were terrible losses going into this year and they sign a player of bounds caliber. He's GonNa. Huma bit doesn't sit ups. Brown was quite radical attendance. Let let anything else. He hasn't really built up any kind of report relationship with him that was demonstrated very clearly by the hard knocks cameras showing these slightly awkward exchanges and he you realize that all the time when you please join a facility will join a team and at the facility could you don't really know them very well. Take time to build up that relationship and sometimes you know that never really is is a fluent process and particularly when you've got the situation with brand gruden such dogmatic characters. I've got sympathy with gruden on it necessarily mishandle the situation did he well. I think it's more case of building a team a team feeling of setting an atmosphere the whole team that a new player walks into regardless of whether he's Prima Donna or not and and when you walk into some teams the the over the overwhelming whelming influence is for you to be a team player and obviously in Oakland or at least for Antonio Brown. That wasn't now whether that's totally Gruden's fault or whether there were distractions. I don't know whether Brown was playing to the hard knocks cameras. I don't know but but sir days definitely definitely planned but so was John Groups that was great near Tehran. No doubt that may be the I don't when I say I don't know I don't know if that's the root of the problem problem or what if Brown you know came in you know looking looking to sort of build his brand or whatever that idea on what he commissioned a whole set filmmakers to make a series of short films they released on online and nothing to do with these Brat Oh man I'm glad you mentioned brand because I wanted to get into the whole player power our situation in the NFL because I'm like many other sporting leagues around the world the NFL has been always top loaded in favor of the team and that is is borne out particularly by the structure of contracts where near the guaranteed money a is guaranteed guaranteed contracts are two in many respects specs. Um you see it all the time very misleading. When you see a play signing five years for one hundred million dollars you got to look at the fine print that because it's unlikely in most situations that plays GonNa get his paws on that one hundred million dollars so teams the mercenary they caught players and plays a pragmatic and they get this Mike but always seeing a shift to Z. Kelly holding ground and getting the deal that he wanted Antonio Brown facilitating his exit from the the the raise in the way that he did Melvin Gordon. It's not working out so well well. You could argue that left bow kind of go. He wanted in the end getting out the steelers getting paid by the jets. Are we seeing a shift generation. If someone who's covered the a game for so long that you think players are going to start engender more power going forward. I think so and I think it's because there's been a couple of changes that have impacted the players negatively. I have no problem actually with the way the NFL structures contracts because the guaranteed money is basically the guaranteed the signing bonus is the guarantee of the contract but players agents forget that as soon as the that money's in the bank and and the salaries than you know as you say they're they're. They tend to be back loaded. They tend to be small at the beginning and players then think that they're underpaid but things like the rookie rookie salary caps which limit this the salaries of players when you were running back and you know that the average career in the NFL is three and a half years years running backs are probably the most oft injured of position in the League. You really want to be able to cash in early. You know I I I have all the sympathy in the world with the League back in the sense that they were going crazy paying money for unproven quarterback in other first high first round draft picks. I think that that you want to pay people based on what they have produced not what their potential is and we see in other sports how that can cripple teams in in salary terms were these long-term deals are fully guaranteed all all the way through but at the same time. I think what they were doing. What they're doing is restricting the players quite a bit and partly because there's guys is have enough money to be able to ride out to ride out a hold out. If that's what if that's what they wanna do I think Jadeveon clowney cloudy for example was able to do that and got himself exactly the situation he wanted it was it was a benefit basically for almost everybody I'm not. I'm sure that they attack since got the best value for him but they cleared BEDECK he gets he gets a a chance to shine on a contending lending team although the Texans look like they'll be contending team as well where he's very well suited for their system. seattle gets the player for about half the costs that you would expect him to be an next year he he could quite possibly be gone but that they're willing to put up with that with that situation the question the bigger question. Shen and not the bigger but the smaller more direct question is why did both Brown and Bell want out of Pittsburgh so badly you know it's a contending ending team one where you think it's sort of player I kind of atmosphere and here's the two biggest stars both thinking that they're somehow being taken advantage of well. I wonder whether that's a fair point but I wonder whether one affected the other about civil galvanize the mindset of Brown to get out of that with bell he you never actually from the jets got the kind of money he was trying to get to be paid as both wide receiver and running back but with Brown it seems to be more of a culture sure thing an atmosphere thing where all of a sudden he just sort of gave up on on the team at at the wrong time and and that is the attitude that prevailed when he went to Oakland as well and I wonder if if the Patriots are going to be able to actually keep that attitude from trump resurfacing when NAM assuming he actually plays for yeah okay. We'll wait and see on that one. That's let's go back to his old team. Oakland then a terrific story just Jacobs who's he's had a difficult part of the NFL hasn't he might he's a guy that had a very tough upbringing was was living on the street for a little bit. was overlooked before landing leading in Alabama over to the college level initially before landing in in Alabama here is absolutely tearing Monday night football yeah and you know I I said when they drafted Josh Jacobs what what they were looking for was a sort of marshawn Lynch poor man's version rookie version of marshawn Lynch and that appears to be to.
