Weekly Rewind 5/25 - 5/29

"Good morning everyone. And welcome to first things first on general along side Nick Right. Kevin Wild Chris Broussard's got his game face on with us on this Wednesday morning before we get to some basketball. Here's what we got on the lineup is the MVP Lamar's to lose this season. Really interesting take on why the Eagles will win the division. And why Thomas Giselle are absolutely positively adorable? Nick wanted to make sure we got that story in the show and we did buddy. So you're all set. We're going to start in the NBA. This morning so yesterday guys remember. We talked about a new. Nba Playoff format. Team seeded one through sixteen with no conferences. So nick spent yesterday putting pen to paper picking out the outcome of every seven game series until he crowned championship. But Kevin Wild human working with our guy. Nick long enough to predict his predictions to stay one step ahead of him albeit a small step. How do you think looking at this ward? Nick has this four some plain out. Let's start on the top left. How do you think he'll go here? All right the prognosticator of prognosticators Nick Right. I think Orlando is basically playing a home game here. Everything is in Orlando. I think you give Orlando One game got bucks and five and then Chris Paul sneaks past the heat in maybe five. He ends up going to the Knicks. After that. And then I think another bucks in five. That would be my prediction about your prediction. Nick are so you were very close. Milwaukee sweeping the magic. I don't think the home games are going to matter for the magic. They are totally overmatched. And we can show what we've got here. I've got Milwaukee sweeping the magic. I have okay. See beating the Miami Heat in six. Actually so you're right on those predictions that I have and we can reveal there. It is and Milwaukee than winning and five. I think it's going to be very tough for anyone to give any real resistance to Milwaukee particularly early in the playoffs. No matter the format. I no one's GonNa Broussard's take any issue with Milwaukee advancing pass Orlando and whomever they play in the second round. I do think he thunder. Could be one of the most intriguing first round series. Broussard do you. Do you have any issues? Any qualms critiques with if that's if we get the one through sixteen format this quadrant. Obviously Milwaukee gets past Orlando in quick fashion but I thought about going with The Sunday. I thought hard about it. They play some the best basketball in the league over the last three months. They've been twenty nine and ten however the heat are tough. They shoot three well. You're talking about home games. I mean they're in their home state. You know so. It's somewhat of a home game for him. I guess I understand. It may not matter. But I've got the heat winning over Oklahoma City in a tough seven game series. And that makes it tough for Milwaukee because we know Miami is to ino against the bucks Bam out of value likes going against Jaanus. Jimmy Butler is gritty and hard nose and both teams shoot the three well but I will give the bucks the edge. I think they'll get past Miami and a tough six games. So here's my response to the Miami. Okay see your point because it's well taken. Is this where Oklahoma City has been exceptional? This year Broussard is close late. They have been the best. Khl FOURTH QUARTER IN KLUX team in the league. There are more of a veteran team than Miami is so I think they might be a little more prepared to deal with this layoff and we know playoff games particular between two closely match teams. They're always going to come down to the last four or five minutes. I just trust Broussard. Chris. Paul in those situations more than anybody. Miami has I like Butler late. We saw it last year with Philadelphia. And he's hungry and he's he's finally the situation where he has his own team and the guys are accepting it at least for right now Chris. Paul obviously been had mixed responses in the clutch. Sometimes he's been great sometimes. Struggled also think with Chris his age and his history injuries could be a Hammy here there. I'm not so sure he won't be fell by an injury when we start playing. Jeez are if we move onto the next squadron but before you set it up. Jewish should be noted the next one and I'll let you take it Gina. We would get these match ups either way whether the regular format or the other format it would be these teams playing each other. But go ahead Jenna. I know while. Let's do next quadrant bottom left. How do you think? Nick filled out this portion so I think the clips rolled nick. I know you don't like Hawaii too much and you're saying no it's not. I don't like him you don't like him but I think clips role the mavs and I look. I grew up in New England but I think the sixers win. This and I think you've got the sixers winning this three in one against Boston. They're twenty nine to at home. They're terrible on the road so I think the big question is does Orlando play like the home home court or does it play like an away court if I'm the sixers. I'm flying down meek mill and tasty cakes giggling to make that thing fields philly as possible and then. I think it'd be super interesting if the sixers could get past the clippers. I think probably have the clippers but I personally love the sixers here nick. Are you almost win over three? They're Wilde's clippers mavs brutal seven game series. Got The number one offense in basketball. The mavs can give them all they can handle. I like the Celtics over the sixers. And then and Bruce Czar. This is the one. I'm sure we'll go to war on the Celtics. Know who they are. They know what their rotation is. They know exactly what? They're trying to do the Clippers. Meanwhile they we don't know the rotation they don't know the rotation Reggie Jackson. Marcus Morris how are we fitting you in? I think the clippers are going to be in for all they can handle in round one against the number one offense a basketball and the Celtics under this format would beat them in round two. I will give you. The Dallas is a tough first round matchup for anybody. Obviously you got Luca. But it's his first play often. He'll be he's young so clippers will get past them. This is a tough one in Boston and Philly but I think. Coaching is a big factor. Here too and I give Brad Stevens the big edge there. So you're right. It'll be clippers. Celtics I noticed was tough for you. Because you're not really a fan of either team you like to undermine estimate both teams but you are so off on the clippers. I'm GonNa save some of that. 'cause they're they're going to be a live a lot longer than you think so. I've got the clippers beating Boston in this one on a heck of a second round match up. You know it's so interesting you've been saying all year long before the during the year. How often I've been on the clippers. Despite the fact that the sixty five games have been played have showed. I was the only one in America right about the clippers. A before the damn shutdown they were the four seed in the West. So we'll see no matter what. The playoff format is will get to see if the clippers or the team that you have a spouse them to be the favorites in the West and all this or if my preseason pessimism about them was correct but Genoa. Let you keep us moving on this. I'm with unique. I like the Celtics. Let's move onto the other side top right now. Knicks Lakers Knicks rockets wild. What do you think nick has in this quadrant? I mean this is the to fifteen here. Nick is just up for grabs. I know you've probably got the Lakers. And maybe six but if he comes back and I know there's no positive reports about K. D. at the same time he had surgery on June twelfth. I think if we're into late July that's four hundred days of recovery. The historically we're at like two fifty boogie came back at like three fifty. Chauncey came back at like three sixty. So it's a lot of time for Katie everybody's different but I'm not willing to write them off entirely the jazz. We don't know if they like each other. They're going to have to go to counselling before we even they even step on the core rockets. Take it there and then I guess you've got a Lakers and five over the rockets. Nick you got you got one thing right. I got Lakers in five. The Lakers are going to sweep the neck. So I got Lakers four Lakers alive and the rockets and the rockets and six over the jazz broussard. I INC THE JAZZ THEIR ENTIRE. Chances of competing. This postseason went out the window when Bogdonovich like he's too key to what they try to do to be able to beat equality first round opponent in Houston and I do think Houston can give the Lakers a bitter trouble. I was at the game in Houston where. Pj Tucker for at least a half did well against Lebron they the rockets then later beat the Lakers. In a game were hard only went three for ten. But that's how I see that quadrant. Now Look Brooklyn. If I'm I've said in the past Kevin Durant shouldn't even think about coming back but while this right it will have been so long that he's since he had the injury he should be ready. I wouldn't rush it but if he's ready under this situation if I'm Kevin Durant and carbon reorganise healthy. I'm looking at this like this might be a chance to sneak a championship. This showroom play though. I think he's doing that but I go. I still go with the Lakers. Either Way and then you've got rockets. I do think over Jazz. You mentioned by Donovan's obviously you got the Donovan. Mitchell Rudy. Gobert situation too. I think over time that that time will heal those wounds and they'll be fine but this year it's going to be a problem. So I got Lakers rockets. You're right nick. Small with the rockets can give the Lakers some problems. Maybe they get a game or two but the Lakers advanced are and real quick on durant. It would be so unfair to ask him to come back in the playoff in the cauldron of the playoffs. But Jenna go ahead all right last bracket guys bottom right Raptors Grizzlies Nuggets Pacers. You see it right there mister. Wilde's take us through what you think nick has make. I gotta be honest with you. This is the bracket least excited about. I wish there was a little more firepower in this bracket I know I'm supposed to love the raptors as I just don't think raptors role the the grizzlies in four. I think nuggets role the Pacers. Maybe five even and I don't think there's sensors no Denver Home Court. I think it's raptors and five. That's I think you got. You got the teams right. You got the Games Close Raptors and five nuggets and five said. I do raptors. Nuggets would play the a good series. I trust the Championship Medal of Toronto. Broussard you love this sixteen. This new format this new format a quarter of it involves this which I don't think it has any sex appeal to anyone outside of those four markets. But that's how this playing out. I assume you agree with most of that year. I love the other three brackets. This one is pretty mundane but I agree with you. Toronto Denver and then that'll be a really good series but Toronto edge them so I I'm with you all the way on this all right. Let's move on to the final four guys. You Have Bucks Lakers the Danny Ages and the raptors. Nick take us through Kevin. What you think Nick's going to do here. I think nick is going to go. Bucks and six Lakers in maybe five and then it's going to be classic Nick Right time. America Lakers in three for the championship. Lebron wins MVP. You were close to respect for Jaanus bucks in five. They walk over the Celtics just like they did last year. Against the Celtics Lakers and five. Lebron goes through Christmas pass for the Raptors. It's like again. We gotta go through Lebron Finals and in my preseason prediction my season prediction. My current prediction Lakers over the box in six. Let's say you Chris Broussard. Well I'm not even sure. Toronto IS GONNA show up if they have to face Lebron again so they might win. That series by four richer by Lakers definitely make the finals. In this case you saw wrong. No look the clippers. This as much as this layoff may benefit Lebron. Because he's older and he gets the rest of what to three months off to get his body right. It is going to benefit the clippers more than anyone. Don't forget Nick Right. They have been banged up all year. Colli her MS thirteen gave Paul. George Miss Twenty two. Those two are going to be a hundred percent now and even as they were just dropping. Those guys in the lineup. Here and there. They still were playing with great chemistry. They are going to be a juggernaut. They beat Milwaukee and they as much as I hate to say it because I am the Lebron Fan. They beat the Lakers in a heart knows finals loud. La Nick Clippers over the Lakers in six. Listen I'm glad you're I'm glad you're sticking with it and going on the record you've been on the record every step of the way so you'll get to have been wrong every step of the way if this does turn out to be the final four though get ready for the narrative to be God. I mean yeah. Lebron made the finals but it's out west. Look all the best teams are in the East. Lebron another cakewalk for Lebron the NBA finals to his what would be his fourth finals. Mvp and he could celebrate it right there in Disney world. Right where they're holding down this year would appear. I love really good stuff. Guys a healthy lifestyle should be easy right.

They could be adding another all pro the roster. Jamal Adams reportedly wants to be traded if the jets don't give him a contract extension. His preference had his hometown. Dallas Cowboys Iniquity think. Would adding Jamal Adams make the Dallas cowboys favorites to win the NFC will as they are presently constituted? I got him at eleven and five and competing for. I don't think there is a truly great team in the conference right now. I think the two best teams in football the chiefs and the Ravens are both in the AFC. And you look at the cowboys. What is in my mind? Their single biggest position of weakness. It's the back end. The defense they lost Byron Jones. It's the only spot on either side of the ball. They don't have an all pro caliber player whether it's all been supplying wide receiver running back defensive line linebackers. They've got all pros or guys. Who have that ability everywhere except for in the back end so it'd be the perfect fit for team that I already believe could win the conference. They're not my pick to win the conference but adding Jamal Adams might be enough to put him over the top it would also be wild and ultimate all in move they already have one of the three highest paid the following positions wide receiver running back guard defensive end inside linebacker. They're quarterback is appears to be next on the list and if you trade a first round pick and something else for Jamal Adams it so you could then immediately make him the highest paid safety in. Nfl history so you would be constructing a roster. That is absolutely as top heavy as we've ever seen no middle class of players and then a bunch of minimum ish salary guys. It would be a risky gambit. But if you're not worried about future you if you're worried about today you absolutely you make you make this move. Maybe becomes the favorites in the NFC. Certainly become the favorites in the NFC by decent margin. And have the best chance. You've added a super bowl and a quarter century wilds. So I liked the Carpe diem aspect that they make the move but there was a curious. Tweet that Charles. Robinson put out in coach. I wanted your opinion on it and if I was the cowboys I would look at this and say now. We're out we're out so we went to tweet up. The price for Adams may be more complicated than what was reported by. Michael Irvin the first and third round pick is correct but last year's trade deadline mess involving Adams and the cowboys let the jets feeling burned that could linger into the price point. This time around so coach. My question to you and this is weird. Have you ever experienced a train? Scenario where a trade team to one team is X. And the train to another team is x plus Y so your demands are different even though you want different things back according to the team which guy is going to. Yeah that can definitely be part of the equation and some that can be a function of is it in the. Afc THE NFC or you're going to have to compete against this player. Are you worried about competing against the player that that you're moving on from? What type of relationship do you have with with the organization that you don't want to get it to the point where your not trading you're asking for too much because of some sort of sort of grudge and I would imagine Newark's gotTa look at this and then figure out whether or not they want the player on the team and and he's in his third year he already wants a new contract. That has been issues you know in in terms of of chemistry and and prospects for the future. You gotTA figure out. Do you want him on your team. But in addition to that you got to figure out whether you want to send the message. That guys are willing or able to shoot their way off the team. And that's that's a dangerous precedent to that in your third year you can demand a trade and and and the team is willing to accommodate you. There's there's a lot of things at play here. Nick I WANNA ask you about about the cowboys for a second. How much of their potential deck? Here's a team. That has a new coach new attitude every poll out there seems to have them in the top ten. Maybe that's at five and yet the team is still at this impasse with their quarterback and it seems like their is teammates wanting to get signed. Do you think that some sort of negative attention going into this season? And could that be detrimental to them? The only way the DAX situation truly impacts this season would be if he doesn't play and he's going to play there there. I am as competent in this as anything ever said on television. Deck Prescott is not going to refuse to report once. The regular season begins because they franchise tag him not when the team has attempted to sign him to a deal and he just wants a higher above the market deal. The cowboys haven't shown faith in Dak Prescott. So I don't think playing under the specter of the franchise tag is going to negatively affect his play. I you could say he'll feel better about things if he has a long term deal. But I think that's negligible but I WANNA go back to coach on something because I guess this is something he and I just see the world differently on. You're allowed to ask for a new deal after three years. You're not allowed to ask for one Gordon after year. One or two a first round pick but after year three you are and if anyone deserves it. It's a guy who within his first. Three years has become the best player in the League at his position. Zeke got one. After three years for similar reasons we saw. Jj Watt get one. After three years for similar reasons. Aaron Donald Tried. He had to wait in additional year. I don't think it's out of bounds coach for a player. Jamal Adams caliber to say you drafted me in the top ten. I've lived up to the expectations. I want my contract extension to me. That's totally fair game coach. You drafted sixth overall. So you're you're getting compensated at a high level for the three years of production that you've had and as a drafted guy in the first round. The team actually has an option for a fifth year. So you've got two years left on your contract not not just one year left on your contract and it's not like it's it's been a marriage that's that that all the sides are excited about there's been conflict. Gran- There's been destructiveness. I don't I don't imagine the team that excited to reward behavior like that because it's not just this contract. It's all the contracts in the future. It's whatever precedent you want to set organizationally as to. This is how we will do business. And once you set that precedent. Everybody's GonNa do business the way that you've established it. I would just argue I apologize. I guess the point I would make is the disruption came from the fact that they were shopping him last year that Adam gays got there and seem to want to immediately get rid of the best players on their team. He wasn't asking for a new contract last year because he wasn't allowed to have a new contract last year and I can have different rules for different players. Listen if you're all pro within the first couple of years of your rookie deal. Maybe we'll give you a new deal. If not then then play out your deal I just I know. We're focused on the cowboys. But on the Jamal Adams thing I don't think he is some locker room problem I think he's he plays for a team. That doesn't appreciate the best player on their team. General coach I want to go back to just for a second. I touched briefly on a new coach. And we kind of sweep aside every team right now obviously is going through their issues with trying to get a team together on soon and the chemistry and all of how tough is it for. Mike McCarthy right now there's a ton of potential on this team. These are very unique circumstances. And he really hasn't been able to get that whole team together. Plus he's got this whole quarterback situation sorta hanging over his head and told the July whatever it is mid July tag tag deadline comes down the. There's a lot of difficulty in. That's where you have to really take a step back and say. Do we want to go all in in year? One of Mike McCarthy. Mike is going to have to learn about this team. He's going to have to understand what he truly has. Offensively defensively out and on special teams and to make that decision to trade away future first round draft pick and whether it's a one three or whatever it is and then also all the money that you have to commit to that player at that that's a huge amount of resources that you don't have in the future so you've got to feel very strongly that you're going to win and win big right now. Coach in his first year with experience should have an edge in that area. But the idea of mortgaging the future in year. One that. That's that's tough to swallow. I'm still worried a little bit worried about Dak Nick and you know we've been talking about our countdown. I would like to debut. We're one day away from starting our countdown or countdown to the countdown. Is that one day. Tomorrow we'll start are visual countdown. Which it's fifty days. The July Fifteenth Franchise Tag Nick. I know you're not nervous. I went thrown like not worried at all countdown to the countdown. Getting Ready. Everybody if you look at Dacca over there thirty five. The price keeps going up for his for year. One of his deal tomorrow thirty six. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA photoshop finger on their nick. You're not worried that this is Casas specter over the entire season at all. Not even one little iota. The reason I'm not worried about it is because the NF because there is that deadline the negotiation is will be over July fifteenth. Either happens or they can. They are prohibited by League rule to give him a contract extension after July fifteenth. So there won't be any questions. There won't be any issues just either as a new deal or he doesn't now I would say if the cowboys opt to Trade Virgil Adams to me. That would be potentially at least flirting with walking down the path of do we just franchise. Dak This year next year to we trade him to recoup picks and reset our quarterback salaries. So we can continue keeping this all star team around whatever other quarterback we bring in or whatever quarterback draft. Because I don't think it's tenable to circle back to the point. I made at the beginning. Tab Atop to highest paid in the league wide receiver running back quarterback guard defensive inside linebacker and safety. I no other team has ever built team like that. The rams seemingly tried to a little bit and double down on it themselves by trading for Jalen Ramsey. They also gave their quarterback the deal. And now we're seeing traded away. Brandin cooks they got rid of todd. Gurley so it's not sustainable term. Jim Back here first things first make sure you check us out tomorrow. Kanner will join us to talk about the. Nba's possible return should be fun conversation tomorrow morning right here on first things first and joining us now is super bowl. Champ Greg Jennings Greg. We're talking some Cam Newton. Let's talk about Cam specifically why the thirty-one-year-old free agent can't seem to find team this off season. One reason could be health coming off a year where he played only two games because of injury. The other reason could be this one anonymous. Nfl GM said CAM is quote. His decline is evident. Nick you've been on the CAM corner since the beginning you think. Cam's decline is evident. Well I thought it was and then I happen to unlike this anonymous. Gm evidently the twenty eighteen season. Listen Cam was an a plus player in two thousand fifteen when his team went fifteen one when he won the league. Mvp running away with it and then in two thousand sixteen. He was not nearly as good and twenty seventeen even though they made the playoffs nearly as good but in twenty eighteen prior to his shoulder giving out on him after the. J. Watt hit. He was playing the best football of his life. A career fifty nine percent. Completion percentage was up almost seventy percent. He was nearly three hundred yards. A game it's twenty six. You had the rushing to it to seven interceptions and a passer rating of one four. And he was once again as he has throughout his career he was doing. It wouldn't with unproven or your average at best wide. Receivers would just what he's had to deal with HIS ENTIRE TIMING CAROLINA POST Steve Smith. I mean the last time we saw Kamina playoff game was January. Twenty eighteen so a few months before the twenty eighteen season started. They would've won on the road in New Orleans. If Cam had anybody that could reach his level of play at the Receiver Position. Kaelin clay dropped as e Cam. Goodness handed him a touchdown. Pass any better. Look there's early in the game. This is a momentum. Killer. Just dropped. Perfect Pacified Cam. It right in the breadbasket and Kaelin clay drops it despite that late in the game. Cam has driven them in range. For a game winning touchdown pass third and twenty three turnaround Devon punches. That you see the score downs. Five less than a minute left. This is in warlords to win the game. So if listen of cameras some guy in decline wilds as opposed to a guy who got over her shoulder and then broke his foot this anonymous. Gm is watching different than I am first of all shutout to anonymous. Gm One of our favorite guests on the show provides us with a lot of news is always welcome on first things first. Someday you know go out for a drink. But you're got me thinking Greg. We're we're watching the match and we thought like Oh who's on the front nine in. Who's on the back nine? We had the old quarterbacks on the back. Nine Industy R. Researcher said. Let's divide up the quarterback who's on the front nine and who's on the back night we don't want to say a decline. Who's in decline but I would actually argue if you're on the back nine of your career. You might be still pretty good. Here's a quick list. Big Ben rivers car full Stafford Rogers Cousins Matt Ryan Breeze Brady. He put golf on there. I'm not putting golf dusty Brady so I don't think cameras on a little bit of a decline okay. Is he going to be literally flipping into the end zone? Maybe not is can instill a great player. That should be on your team. Bill Bell. Jack Probably Do. I still like jared. The Javelin yes do. Should you put a call into cams agent? Maybe I'm just saying the decline might be slight. But there's a ton of quarterbacks on decline who are still pretty good. Greg Yard agree and one thing about the national football league. What they tried to do. They WanNa lay with you and with Cam Newton. Obviously we know his injuries in what he has not been able to do up to this point in showcase the talent that he'd obviously possesses but once they label you and they're labeling cam as declining as injury prone in several other things possibly but they were you to devalue you and that's what. I feel like it's happening with Cam Newton. He's a great player. He's proven to be a great player. Who has set the bar so high that if he ever does not achieve that level of standard of play which he set for himself the precedent was set by himself and himself only. Then yes. Everyone's going to say oh. He's not the same player if he doesn't match the MVP the offensive player of the year. The getting his team to the Super Bowl in the next year and the year after he doesn't come anywhere. Close people are going to say is the same player in. That's fair but you can't just say that about Cam Newton when it's a team sport. It's yes did he get that team to the to the Super Bowl pretty much offensively on resolve. Yeah but he had a great great great defense was his defense is the same the following two years. They were good. They weren't as good as they were that year. And so for me. It's it's one of those deals. Where once you start getting labelled in the National Football League. Everyone Starts Jumping on that label bandwagon and saying. Yeah. That's why we don't have them. That's why we don't have them. But there's one general manager anonymous or not that can sit here and tell me that Cam. Newton is not forget the starting quarterbacks that he's not a second tier guy following a starting quarterback i. It's not it's not even a question that he is more than that and the problem is there doesn't seem to be anything he can do about it right now. Teams can't bring him into working out you know he he can't get on. The phone convince people that he's healthy again so he puts out videos. He says he's willing to be a backup somewhere he seems to be putting all the workin. Greg is there anything he can do at this point? Besides just let the labels fall where they are. Have you ever experienced anything like that? Where you've been labelled one way but you can't really convince the rest of the League. You're not that guy anymore. Well he's doing everything that he possibly can and everything that he should and everything within his power for for myself you know. I got labeled as being injured old and not as fast as I once was couldn't create the separation and it was all predicated on the fact that I left Green Bay. I no longer have a quarterback. Deca put the ball where I needed him to put it period it was. I've played a dependent a position. But what Cam. Newton is dealing with is a team in the Carolina Panthers who going into twenty nineteen season said okay cams going to have to change the way he plays. We want him to be more of a pocket guide. We don't want him running the ball. Well guess what what makes cam? Newton special is the fact that he's the dual threat quarterback the fact that he can be a threat with his legs as well as his arm. Let him be who he is. And so once you start to try and take away things that makes player special and unique in great thing. Yes his play is gonNA look a little different but he was able to produce outside the injuries. I don't see why he's not on the team and he listened he's been unfairly labeled injury prone because he broke his foot. Here's an inconvenient fact for the folks who have disliked cam for a decade and been waiting for an excuse to push him out of the League prior to breaking his foot Cam. Newton was eligible to play in one hundred twenty eight. Nfl Games. He played in one hundred and twenty three of them prior to breaking his foot. His most games missed in a season was two and five years. He played all sixteen. He played sixteen five times fifteen once and fourteen twice and then he broke his foot. A broken foot is not a spinal cord injury that takes you out of football unless people for some reason want you to have a reason to be out of football. Jim Well the back of the first things first now drawn by Celtics Center and friend of the show and his manner and his good morning. Thanks for hanging out with us today. Happy Belated Birthday. We should mention. Celebrate GETTING ALL WE. I'm not but a lot of people are haven staying busy. The last couple of weeks and months. How hard is training? Been knowing that the season could basically could be here right around the corner just because we still don't know if this isn't going to continue to do our best to just stay shape so we had actually have this virtual workouts with the Celtics. We we get on the call with the strength coach and we literally just do pushups situps and you know just. I see some of the players doing workers and with suitcases because they don't have the tools to work out. I'm like that is going to bring a championship championship metality. We stace as I love it and they've floated a lot of different potential playoff proposals. The two most likely are the regular playoffs. One versus eight one versus eight in the West. The other one is receding one through sixteen and odd quirk of it. Either way the Celtics play in the sixers in the first round whether the older the new playoff format what what are some of the strengths and weaknesses. Up that match up for you guys. I think I mean obviously our big rival the sixers From like the years and years. But I think it's a good match up where the to look at what happened. During the season they beat us will be a good match for them. I think I believe my team. Man I think we can go. I feel like we have enough guys to go out there and win a championship. I collect we can beat every team on every floor. We just gotTa go out there and just be ready to stay in shape and just squad. Fun and Games are going to have no fans. You're a guy who thrives off the enthusiasm of the crowd i. Brian had a quote where he he was saying that he also thrives off like the visiting team to wind to like quieting down. How are you going to motivate yourself? Or how do you think the floor of the game going to change with a silent arena? Listen I don't if you'll wrestling fan but I watch wrestlemainia. Eighty was one of the most awkward at one of the most weirdest what I ever watched. But I think you know just I feel like we all we all basketball player each in the go out there and play basketball. I feel like we can just take anything right now. On only thing we gotta here just a basketball bouncing but I think I think it's GonNa be fine. I'll take anything right now if you ask me. Well that's interesting so I'm curious if you've spoken to not just your teammates but other players around the league. What do they want to see a platform? Look like when you come back one of the players seem to the general consensus to be what they think would be the best option for you guys. I'll tell you this I talked to my team and want to go out there and play but I'm hearing that some of the players are there in other teams that they do not want to play because they are scared. They're they're they're saying I don't WANNA put my land risk and just go out there and play a game and I'm GonNa. I was shocked by that. I was seriously shot by that but I think if you ask my might seem warfare you play against the sixers and be refill. Saga confident about it. We just gotTa go out there and just do what we do. Bessinger compete. Let's assume the season does resume? I've heard very differing points of view. On what types of teams or players will most benefit or be hurt by the layoff? I've heard people say well. The veteran team should be in better position. Because they have a system they give you their bodies in shaping. Some people have said the exact opposite then. The younger guys are always good to go. I've heard people say shooting. Never leave you and I've heard people say everyone's shots going to be off as a player yourself. What are some of the things that you think will click back into gear immediately or soon to be and what are some things that you think are going to show the most rust if a player say that their in game shape they're lying because game shape is a different type of shape? I mean it doesn't matter how much you run. How much you do pope. Overplay do any activities you. You cannot be game shape unless you play game so I think if you ask them my my game was always just you know just play physical rebound and play posted. Came back the basket so I don't think I will I will. I'm going to be struggled much because like the sausage is doing an amazing job keeping our focus physically and mentally right so I feel lucky we just got a gonNa go out and play hard. Place wanted to have fun with it. Homecourt advantage Janice trying to figure out what this is like. Is it gonNa feel more like your home court because you're there all the time and you're living there or is it going to feel like way game because it's not your home court. And how is that going to determine the flow of a series? We're so used to. Hey we'll win home games and we can power through. How do you think a neutral court affects the flow of a playoff series? I think's GonNa be fair because it's going to feel like in south like never before I I've gotta feel at home. I feel that we grow and so I think it'd be just because of they're going to do one or two location. I I it's fair to say Has the same thing you know but I think it's going to be very interesting because NBA or never like that before. So I feel like we just need to Look which ever team get used to the most is going to have the most benefits. I WanNa ask you a very important question here. Rob Gronkowski's resume reads like this football wrestling. You have mentioned that after the NBA. You would definitely dip your toes into the wwe going back into the NBA with the season starting soon but any updates on that. I know you've been watching. But what about as a career move talking about the wrestling right so like I'm already in touch with Paul human? I remember this last time I saw triple H. He told me to keep my number in on and Salah I. It's gotTa be fun man because I feel like I feel like this is my life. You know trolling gone on their trash. Trash talking to people get on people's face so I think it's GonNa be fun and I'm like I even told Paul Paul said. Hey let's go out and do right. I'm like dude. You gotta give me a piece for five. More uses just finished by that. I am all your. I'm all human guy and he was just so excited well and I can say this because innocent. I are now close personal friends as the video just showed not shockingly. His didn't have a lot of trouble getting the title had immense troubled defending the title though as he was pinned immediately. I think you were the shortest twenty. Four seven champion ever still has the twenty four seven belts. California say would be your tag team partner when both of us for Title. I could work out. What about what about what's wrong with that? Love it so so five years you and me tag team partner like a big little Turkish delight. Okay there we go okay just to keep the focus on you earlier in the show. We did a little predictions if it was straight seeds and nick has got you beating the sixers but losing to the box. What do you need to do to get past honest? I listen I I hope you their Jersey that I gave it to you. I hope you didn't burn but I believe I believe that. We're GONNA pass the sixers for sure but I'd like the. The bus is going to be a tough match up but I think we have enough grossly just guardian us and the whole box. Make if you look at what happened there. The season they got us. We got them. So it's GonNa be much of the eastern finals. I believe anti neck. I was just going to say under the new format beating the clippers. So I do give you credit that if it's the new format I've eaten the clippers. Binding the bucks go ahead. I Apologize. Say our new foam at format. Nick hasn't had a haircut in three months. I know that we're making fun of his lack of hair. Now I give you carte blanche quickly with a few seconds left to make fun of the current situation on top of his head so go ahead and use up your last couple seconds here with that because it's worth it. I actually just caught my own hair yesterday. Just for the show. I have just get jealous of like you know sexually pretty good. I'm now rooting for the sixers list money.

Nick's NBA playoff picks, Drawing A Blank, Stories to Start Your Morning, Enes Kanter joins the show

"Good morning everyone. And welcome to first things first on general along side Nick Right. Kevin Wild Chris Broussard's got his game face on with us on this Wednesday morning before we get to some basketball. Here's what we got on the lineup is the MVP Lamar's to lose this season. Really interesting take on why the Eagles will win the division. And why Thomas Giselle are absolutely positively adorable? Nick wanted to make sure we got that story in the show and we did buddy. So you're all set. We're going to start in the NBA. This morning so yesterday guys remember. We talked about a new. Nba Playoff format. Team seeded one through sixteen with no conferences. So nick spent yesterday putting pen to paper picking out the outcome of every seven game series until he crowned championship but Kevin Wild human working with our guide. Nick long enough to predict his predictions to stay one step ahead of him albeit a small step. How do you think looking at this ward? Nick has this four some plain out. Let's start on the top left. How do you think he'll go here? All right the prognosticator prognosticator Nick Right. I think Orlando is basically playing a home game. Here everything is in Orlando. I think you give Orlando One game got bucks and five and then Chris Paul sneaks past the heat in maybe five. He ends up going to the Knicks after that. And then another bucks in five. That would be my prediction about your prediction. Nick are so you were very close. Milwaukee sweeping the magic. I don't think the home games are going to matter for the magic. They are totally overmatched. And we can show what we've got here. I've got Milwaukee sweeping the magic. I have okay. See beating the Miami Heat in six. Actually so you're right on those predictions that I have and we can reveal there. It is and Milwaukee then winning and five. I think it's GonNa be very tough for anyone to give any real resistance to Milwaukee particularly early in the playoffs. No matter the format. I no one's GonNa Broussard's take any issue with Milwaukee advancing pass for Orlando and whomever they play in the second round. I do think he thunder. Could be one of the most intriguing first round series. Broussard do you. Do you have any issues? Any qualms critiques with if that's if we get the one through sixteen format this quadrant. Obviously Milwaukee gets past Orlando in quick fashion but I thought about going with The Sunday. I thought hard about it. They play some the best basketball in the league over the last three months. They've been twenty nine and ten however the heat are tough. They shoot three well. You're talking about home games. I mean they're in their home state. You know so. It's somewhat of a home game for him. I guess I understand. It may not matter. But I've got the heat winning over Oklahoma City in a tough seven game series. And that makes it tough for Milwaukee because we know Miami is to ino against the bucks Bam out of value likes going against Jaanus. Jimmy Butler is gritty and hard nose and both teams shoot the three well but I will give the bucks the edge. I think they'll get past Miami and a tough six games. So here's my response to the Miami. Okay see your point because it's well taken. Is this where Oklahoma City has been exceptional? This year Broussard is close late. They have been the best. Khl FOURTH QUARTER IN KLUX team in the league. There are more of a veteran team than Miami is so I think they might be a little more prepared to deal with this layoff and we know playoff games particular between two closely match teams. They're always going to come down to the last four or five minutes. I just trust Broussard. Chris. Paul in those situations more than anybody. Miami has I like Butler late. We saw it last year with Philadelphia. And he's hungry and he's he's currently the situation where he has his own team and the guys are accepting it at least for right now Chris. Paul obviously been had mixed responses in the clutch. Sometimes he's been great sometimes. Struggled also think with Chris his age and his history injuries could be a Hammy here there. I'm not so sure he won't be fell by an injury when we start playing. Jeez are if we move onto the next squadron but before you set it up should be noted the next one and I'll let you take it. Gina we would get these match ups either way the regular format or the other format it would be these four teams playing each other but go ahead. Jenna know while. Let's do it next quadrant bottom left. How do you think? Nick filled out this portion so I think the clips rolled nick. I know you don't like Hawaii too much and you're saying no it's not. I don't like him you don't like him but I think clips role the mavs and I look. I grew up in New England but I think the sixers win. This and I think you've got the sixers winning this three in one against Boston. They're twenty nine to at home. They're terrible on the road so I think the big question is does Orlando play like the home home court or does it play like an away court if I'm the sixers. I'm flying down meek mill and tasty cakes giggling to make that thing fields philly as possible and then. I think it'd be super interesting if the sixers could get past the clippers. I think probably have the clippers but I personally love the sixers here nick. Are you almost win over three? They're Wilde's clippers mavs brutal seven game series. Got The number one offense in basketball. The mavs can give them all they can handle. I like the Celtics over the sixers. And then and Bruce Czar. This is the one. I'm sure we'll go to war on the Celtics. Know who they are. They know what their rotation is. They know exactly what? They're trying to do the Clippers. Meanwhile they we don't know the rotation they don't know the rotation Reggie Jackson. Marcus Morris how are we fitting you in? I think the clippers are going to be in for all they can handle in round one against the number one offense a basketball think the celtics under this format would beat them in round two. I will give you. The Dallas is a tough first round matchup for anybody. Obviously you got Luca. But it's his first playoff and he'll be. He's young so clippers will get past them. This is a tough one in Boston and Philly but I think. Coaching is a big factor. Here to I'd give Brad Stevens the big edge there. So you're right. It'll be clippers. Celtics I noticed was tough for you. Because you're not really a fan of either team you like to undermine estimate both teams but you are so off on the clippers. I'm GONNA save some of that because they're they're going to be alive a lot longer than you think so. I've got the clippers beating Boston in this one on a heck of a second round match up. You know it's so interesting you've been saying all year long before the year during the year. How often I've been on the clippers. Despite the fact that the sixty five games have been played have showed. I was the only one in America right about the clippers. A before the damn shutdown they were the four seed in the West. So we'll see no matter what. The playoff format is will get to see if the clippers or the team that you have a spouse them to be the favorites in the West and all this or it my preseason pessimism about them was correct but Genoa. Let You keep us moving on this. I'm with unique. I like the Celtics. Let's move on to the other side top right now. Knicks Lakers Knicks rockets wild. What do you think nick has in this quadrant? I mean this is the to fifteen here. Nick is just up for grabs. I know you've probably got the Lakers. And maybe six but if he comes back and I know there's no positive reports about K. D. at the same time he had surgery on June twelfth. I think if we're into late July that's four hundred days of recovery. The historically we're at like two fifty boogie came back at like three fifty. Chauncey came back at like three sixty. So it's a lot of time for Katie everybody's different but I'm not willing to write them off entirely the jazz. We don't know if they like each other. They're going to have to go to counselling before we even they even step on the core rockets. Take it there and then I guess you've got a Lakers and five over the rockets. Nick you got you got one thing right. I got Lakers in five. The Lakers are going to sweep the neck. So I got Lakers four Lakers alive and the rockets and the rockets and six over the jazz broussard. I think the jazz their entire chances of competing this postseason went out the window when Bogdonovich got that surgery. He's too key to what they try to do to be able to beat equality first round opponent in Houston and I do think Houston. Give the Lakers a bitter trouble. I was at the game in Houston where. Pj Tucker for at least a half did well against Lebron they the rockets then later beat the Lakers in a game were and only went three for ten. But that's how I see that quadrant. Now Look Brooklyn. If I'm I've said in the past Kevin Durant shouldn't even think about coming back but while this right it will have been so long that he's since he had the injury he should be ready. I wouldn't rush it but if he's ready under this situation if I'm Kevin Durant and car reorganise healthy. I'm looking at this like this might be a chance to sneak a championship. This showroom play. I think he's doing that but I go. I still go with the Lakers. Either Way and then you've got rockets. I do over Jazz. You mentioned by Donovan's obviously you got the Donovan. Mitchell Rudy. Gobert situation too. I think over time that that time will heal those wounds and they'll be fine but this year it's going to be a problem. So I got Lakers rockets. You're right nick. Small Ball with the rockets can give the Lakers some problems. Maybe they get a game or two but the Lakers advanced are and real quick on durant. It would be so unfair to ask him to come back in the playoff in the cauldron of the playoffs. But Jenna go ahead all right last bracket guys bottom right Raptors Grizzlies Nuggets Pacers. You see it right there mister. Wilde's take us through what you think nick has make. I gotta be honest with you. This is the bracket least excited about. I wish there was a little more firepower in this bracket I know I'm supposed to love the raptors as I just don't think raptors role the the grizzlies in four. I think nuggets role the Pacers. Maybe five even and I don't think there's sensors no Denver Home Court. I think it's raptors and five. That's I think you got. You got the teams right. You got the Games Close Raptors and five nuggets and five said. I do raptors. Nuggets would play the a good series. I trust the Championship Medal of Toronto. Broussard you love this sixteen. This new format this new format a quarter of it involves this which I don't think it has any sex appeal to anyone outside of those four markets. But that's how this playing out. I assume you agree with most of that year. I love the other three brackets. This one is pretty mundane but I agree with you. Toronto Denver and then that'll be a really good series but Toronto edge them so I I'm with you all the way on this all right. Let's move on to the final four guys. You Have Bucks Lakers the Danny Ages and the raptors. Nick take us through Kevin. What you think Nick's going to do here. I think nick is going to go. Bucks and six Lakers in maybe five and then it's going to be classic Nick Right time. America Lakers in three for the championship. Lebron wins MVP. You were close to respect for Jaanus bucks in five. They walk over the Celtics just like they did last year. Against the Celtics Lakers and five. Lebron goes to Christmas pass for the Raptors. It's like again. We gotta go through Lebron Finals and in my preseason prediction my season prediction. My current prediction Lakers over the box in six. Let's say you Chris Broussard. Well I'm not even sure. Toronto IS GONNA show up if they have to face Lebron again so they might win. That series by four richer by Lakers definitely make the finals. In this case you saw wrong. No look the clippers. This as much as this layoff may benefit Lebron. He's older and he gets the rest of have what to three months off to get his body right? It is going to benefit the clippers more than anyone. Don't forget Nick Right. They have been banged up all year. Colli litter MS thirteen gave. Paul George Miss Twenty two. Those two are going to be a hundred percent now and even as they were just dropping. Those guys in the lineup. Here and there. They still were playing with great chemistry. They are going to be a juggernaut. They beat Milwaukee and they as much as I hate to say it because I am the Lebron Fan. They beat the Lakers in a heart knows finals loud. La Nick Clippers over the Lakers in six. Listen I'm glad you're I'm glad you're sticking with it and going on the record you've been on the record every step of the way so you'll get to have been wrong every step of the way if this does turn out to be the final four though get ready for the narrative shift to be God. I mean yeah. Lebron made the finals. But it's out west. Look all the best teams are in the East. Lebron another cakewalk for Lebron the NBA finals to his what would be his fourth finals. Mvp and he could celebrate it right there in Disney world. Right where they're holding down this year would appear. I love really good stuff. Guys a healthy lifestyle should be easy right.

Brian Westbrook or drawn a blank to say that the Balkan Yours linebacker Shek Barrett slightly excited about his. New quarterback is a slight understatement. He said quote I think with brain. You just makes us an automatic contender for the Super Bowl. Nick Shack Barrett's comments on the buck super bowl. Chances are blank manning. Ask and explain that just a moment all my answers today kind of follow the theme if you follow along with them but manning asked what I mean. Is this Jack. Bear won a super bowl. Wants with Peyton manning in his final year in the League in a year. Remanding was downright awful nine touchdown seventeen picks but there were able to overcome that because of a great defense an excellent supporting cast and if the bucks are going to win the super bowl going to be because they are able to overcome the what could be the final year of Tom. Brady's career clearly deteriorating player so shack ferret has firsthand experience on how to do this and if they are going to do it Brian. What's being manning asked the way the twenty fifteen were able to do it. You know I think he buries comments are been premature. I think anytime you add the goal. Of course you're going to be much better having Tom Brady than Jameis. Winston who through thirty interceptions last season But the only problem is that you don't have this far. Tom Brady won't have the same advantage of playing against a weak. Afc East competition here. Here's the thing when you talk about that. Nfc South you have to hall of Fame Quarterback Matt Ryan and Drew Brees. Yeah The saints as a super bowl contenders as well and then when you look at the conference you also have the forty niners. You have Seattle the St of packers. You have the Eagles one team that I have to ask races very good football teams to me. I think they have a good team down there and Tampa Bay but they have to Gel together into able to beat some teams in their own division and in the conference. I think that's a tall order with the man in the mirror and I know I'm supposed to be pro. Tom Brady everything including the puns on the t shirts. But I'm not this time. I agree with Nick. That it has to be Tampa. Bay's defense that gets done. They're rushing defense just bonkers yards per game first yards per rush. I my favorite stat. Stuff percentage Russia's for negative yards and ten yard rushes which we need to work in the marketing of this dusty called a big yard place. They're also I in that you can't stop percentage in big yard so nick. I agree with you. It's going to be the defense for the Tampa Bay buccaneers by the way guys box with fifth. Best odds to win the super bowl this year onto rating. Mvp Lamar Jackson. How do you follow up on an MVP season on splashy heads turning human highlight reel year? How about doing it again? Jay Glazer says I don't see anyone catching up to Lamar Nick Action Jackson ceiling following his. Mvp SEASON IS BLANK WESTBROOK S. But I don't mean Brian Westbrook Russell Westbrook and here's why Russell Westbrook average triple double. I one first person that had done that in forty years in the NBA fifty years in the NBA and he runs away with the MVP. Getting sixty nine first place. Vote the very next year. He does the exact same thing because his team wasn't successful. He wasn't great in the playoffs. And we had just seen it. He got zero first place votes. So even if Lamar duplicate his on field regular season success I feel like the voters won't won't give him the credit he was given last year. Because we've already seen it now once and he wasn't great in the postseason even though neither should really work against him trying like Russell Westbrook and twenty eighteen even if he duplicates it he won't be in the MVP conversation. Brian I like what you bring up. You talk about a Westbrook. Brian West Graham Russell West Virginia. The Western. Make sure you talk about SPEC but you have to give Russell Wells Guy I I do. This is what I think about. Lamar Mark I think. I think his the ceiling is is complicated. We all know the talent. Then Lamar Jackson. The is we also understand. Thirty six touchdown passes over twelve hundred rushing yards last year. There were times when you wash them. You're saying he's unstoppable all by himself. But here's why becomes complicated. Because we know he's going to have a great practice of all season firming looking Bar Jackson at the end of your insult if anytime you win in the NFL. That Paul team the post you are saying to themselves well. Lamar had a great. Dane consist something that he can dupe the in the playoffs. If it's not in they're going to be concerned it's a situation. Where Lamar WanNa ball down the field? He's unstoppable passing the ball. Because that's would eat when I have to do in the playoffs and I think that's something. Does the team can build around. They can t you to be excited about. However this just running it does not seem in the position with his arm and I think it's going to be more complicated. Lamar down the stretch. Because his team is going to have to believe that they're going to have to be able to win in the playoff with his arm. Na just his left imagine if you got. Mvp BACK to back years. You have to start pouring the iron for the statues and getting fitted for his Canton jacket the only guys who have ever won back to back. Mvp legendary pay in Far Montana and Jim Brown. If he pulls this off you can just punch his tickets a K and and he's only twenty three years old the amazing he's no taste hill. But you know who is exactly also dolphins now rather than the much anticipated game plan for new quarterback to tongue of Loa holding back or let him go in his rookie season. A recent report says Miami is not opposed to playing to this year so to his playing time during his rookie. Season should be blank. I'm going to do the rarely seen a thing in drawing a blank which is at my final answer would be the same as my first injured manning but instead of talking about Manning's final year in the League I'm GonNa talk about Payton's first year in the League when he started all sixteen games for the colts who gives a damn. They went three and thirteen the next year. They went thirteen and three because he got that experience. He took his lumps through a bunch of picks. But they've put him out there because they knew he was their quarterback of the future assuming to his health checks out. I think it will. There's no reason he should not start week long. He is a blue chip future star in this league the earlier you get him on the field the better so is say Brian Westbrook. It's manning ask or talking about Peyton Manning's rookie year in this context. I think he's playing time. During the his rookie season should be unlimited. Provided to thing that you can protect him and that you have the weapons around him and that he's eating healthy if you have those couple of things and I think you should allowed to play as much as he can't here's A. He's one of his first year first of all the burden of being the number five overall picnic quarterback in the city that has one very much at all recently Mars. That he's GonNa Learn the speed of the game even though he played at a big Time College Program. This feed the. Nfl game is a little bit different. In lastly is situation of our team's going to attack him being a quarterback how teams are are going to attack him on third down short yardage situations. Those are all have been married early on. Because it's going to help you pay your second third or fourth year down the line the same way that it helped eight manny early on in his career. Jen Hair hair-raising. Here because I think the big question is what happens if Ryan Fitzpatrick is good. The last nine games the dolphins had they went five and four. They lost to the jets by a point from tits. Magic is actually good. I think floors in a tough spot like Oh. We're kind of winning these games. We've got that December six game. Joe Borough supposed to be two of that. Might turn into Joe Borough versus Fitzpatrick if he does well and gets a haircut. I think four is has an interesting decision. Roommate won't get a haircut. He's going to have to get fitted for a new home and wall. He does that give to US healthy. The best way to get better is by playing. Those are my two cents New World Cup format as being floated around in the NBA. This will replace the traditional first round with a twenty team group stage similar to the way soccer. Does it or in other words. One more reason for my dad's a y'all go at the TV every few minutes. Nick you think this could potentially work. It could definitely were. It would just be wildly on baron on necessary. I'm against them. Receding one through sixteen because it's unnecessary even though it would potentially help the team. I'm rooting for the team. I picked the Lakers. I'm against this because it's unnecessary and because it would be wildly unfair in particular to the bucks and the Lakers. The bucks in the Lakers have both already lost down on what they've earned home court advantage. But there's nothing you can do about that but to now just say your regular season performance as long as you're in the top twenty is totally meaningless and you could be out of the whole thing after potentially too bad games is lunacy. It's utter lunacy. We just WANNA have. It is fun exciting and new as possible. Have to be a horse competition or three on three. Whatever the hell you want to do. But it's not you will lose the integrity of the postseason. So it'd be fun but the reason they do this in the World Cup wilds is because you have teams qualifying that were playing in different leagues in different organizations. That's not what's going on in the NBA. I don't know why you'd need to do this. I'll tell you what Kevin O'Connor wrote a great article for the Ringer. This took my interesting meter like this. Blam OH I was like. Oh this is fascinating. Here's the other interesting part. It's a little bit but it happens every once in a while. That least has talked about in the World Cup if taken visit. Ko sees like theoretical bracket. This is not real. This is just like there would be drawing and probably be televised. That was a whole nother interesting element of it but if you go seven. Oh and then you're all the other teams are splitting the gains. There's a chance for your final game that you could submarine a different team by throwing that game. I don't know how they prevent that. It's a little bit of skulduggery. I think it would just be built into the format. It would certainly be interesting. I don't think it's going to happen. But it's a great article and I was fascinated by Brian. You Know Kevin. I think this is awesome. I mean you're talking about people fans that are coming out of foreign team white into a situation where you have a round robin type tournament and you have the ability just like Mitch. Nick mentioned that higher season. They lose a couple games then. They could be out the drama. That's around that to me the light back to the NBA. I think would be also for everyone in bulk. The other thing that they mentioned in a couple articles that I read that there may be potential for a higher seed. The number one seed to pick their opponent imagined the the cringe-worthy type of things being associated with picking your opponent in now. That team that you picked having that chip on their shoulder was days. They wanted someone else now. Opportunity to play to me. Be Pretty Cool. Let's get back to some football now. The fourth and fifteen onside kick alternative has been a big talking point of late but my floral things that would be mistake to allow a team. That's leaning to use it Brian. You agree that only trailing team should be allowed to do the fourth and fifteen alternative. No I mean I think that you were trailing you want to do is kick. You can absolutely do that. I think in this situation if you want to go on for fifteen or fifteen. Even if you're winning that they should be allowed to me. That's always been about if your team is better you those scores any points that you want. If your defense doesn't have the ability to stop a team from converting four contained you probably don't desert when anyway so you don't get that opportunity to me at the end of the day. Here's the deal you want to be able to put your best team on the field. You WANNA be able to go out there and try to win a football game whether I'm up losing. I should have the opportunity to go for Nick. I still have scars of Mike. Variables clock manipulation. They're still healing. They're all up and down my leg. I think it's a clock problem. The trailing thing it needs to probably needs to happen because got your guy. Patrick Mahomes can pull a move just like the Ravens do get the ball with maybe ten seconds left and go run back to the corner of the end zone and just let time expire so this is the famous super bowl way. Oh we're not trying to have an offensive play. I'll just take the safety and burn the clock then the ravens bullet off a few years later against the bengals except they added some holding penalties to it. I think this is of flaw in the rule. Certainly interesting but when you see an offensive team started to go backwards. There's just something that sits along with it for me yet. But it's just a very easy fix. Which is if a team attempts this fourth and fifteen with the lead. It's time down just like an extra points on time. That's all you gotta do then easy fix. Make it an untimely down. If the team attempting it has believe. That's good what I learned from. Your guys previous answer is all we care about fun and interesting so I think it should be determined by three legged race because who gives a damn about the integrity of the game that would walls potato sack Greeks elephants alive and against Acre Arista Midfield? They could maybe put themselves those big bubbles. You Roll around and bounce off anybody. Because we're not worried about frowning through champions we just want to have the most unique wacky thing. We can have unbelievable funding. You Nikki. Got No flon coursing through your veins onto the jets. Now they recently signed Joe Flacco. Darnold backup FLACCO. Said he won't even be ready for the week. One matchup against the bills as he continues to recover from next surgery. Nick you surprised FLACCO. You've got a chance. Even though he's not healthy while Cam Newton continues to sit in. Free Agency Limbo. No because we've always known the rules are different for different guys. Joe flacco classic quarterbacks who can stink for six consecutive seasons not be healthy and still get a contract must be nice Joe. I'm a listen I I don't hate the player of the game. I'm not mad at Joe FLACCO fort but he hasn't been good since Obama's first term and he's not healthy yet yet. He finds himself on a roster good for him. I totally agree Brian. I saw this and I was like looking in theory. It's like maybe camp she'd go get neck surgery like hey guys an extra day. I have no idea what I'll throw football and be back on the field. Well sounds good. That's good news right up. Yeah Cam absolutely deserves to be illegal. You think about who toth back. Oh did last year this canes as starter the only have one game with multiple touchdowns only one game over three hundred yards passing. He hasn't been that guy that Joe Flacco that super bowl winner and a very long time and of course I think Cam certainly deserves a job. I think it also speaks to the NFL as a whole they think that's the older pocket. Passer is better than they. The the injured running quarterback that hasn't been able to deliver as much with his arm and I think in a way hasn't delivered as much as some people think joe lack of to me. I'm taking the CAM. Newton over Joe Lonzo. Any more healthy is a much more offense. Leppin to me. This is obvious choice. Of course you would go with Pam in this situation. Let's talk some boxing now. We're the biggest talking. Point of late is basically just been finding Mike Tyson in opponent for a comeback former heavyweight champions Dante wilder scorching take about Tyson's career resume. Take a listen to this quest for me. How many hall of Famers Tyson Actually Find? Let's say if somebody else did actually like and don't bring up no speaks. They came from light heavyweight to heavyweight. That terrified how and don't bring on their homes because we already know who's way waivers prom many. How many wow neck money thank say yeah? Listen I it's historic. The stoorikhel record does speak for itself now than most of us believe that. Even if Tyson had play at fought in an era where there were more dominant heavyweights he in the eighty s still would have been just as dominant as he was. Deontay wilder makes a fair point to which I would say. Deontay wilder how about we set it up to where he fights a hall of. Famer in his prime right now you. Let's get it going now. That would be a hundred plus million for everyone involved. I say we. Can you know two birds one stone situation? Let's get tights and wilder. I don't care that my brings burst. Man says that wouldn't have a shot. I think he would. I WanNa see it wilds. I would be fascinating. I don't know whether to dig in on the facts of it or the fact that deontay wilder said it's probably more interesting the fact that deontay wilder said you don't really hear a lot of Tyson. Boxing slander from other boxers. It just feels like respect. Sort of runs up hill. And that's not what we're seeing here so Brian. I was shocked to hear this. Someone questioning Mike. Tyson's legacy the I kind of agree with you. I think it's rare that you see younger guys intercom prime especially coming off the top of laws that the game off of questioning one of the great ever Mike Tyson and so I think it's a little bit weird there I to me all these young guys. Listen focus on your and make sure that you're winning right now and it lasts. Obviously deontay wilder. He did not very good Mike. Tyson didn't seem to be Duckie a lot of people during his career especially early on in his career. I think he bought the best people available. The heavyweight division just wasn't as strong the Mike Tyson will say. I don't know why you'd WanNa poke a giant for. Let's get back to some football now. Checkout Ravens cornerback. Marlin Hong latest workout just casually running up a gravel mountain. Obviously my biggest issue with this pebbles in your shoes. It's so annoying but more importantly Brian. You want to join me. And Nick later behind my apartment for our gravel Ron. Ten runs in thirty minutes. It's time what do you say? Look exactly like your type of workout i. I can't envision myself let alone nick right on this work at all. We'll be fully nick up just I lost his workout. I'm started thinking and getting visions of Walter. Payton running up that hill with the headband. On all does all season workout. The he was able to do those types of workout. That inspired me as a young athlete. And so this is great by Marlon Humphrey. Anything that you can do to make sure that you're ready to. I did this when I was a kid. And my dad yelled at me. My Dad was a contractor every once in a while we had to go to gravel yard and once I got yelled that was it. Yes he was very upset with me. I did it once I got yelled at. I didn't do it again but I didn't know what I was working in. America goofing around I am not going to be bothered by the fact agenda. Wolf continues to try to work out. Shame me the that's not bothering me. What does bother me? Though in my commitment to take integrity and honesty is general propagating to the audience. This nonsense idea that there is anything in the backup per apartment. Sky Rises rises and million dollar plus. Condomi's May idea that is living in anything other than a waterfront palatial Eastside. Estate Construction. Work that you can handle time sky rise. Give me a break. America's come hang out with me on the weekend. Nick you see there are gravel piddling. Instagram pays Celtics Center and his canter joins US lots to talk to him about including grabble mountains. Next things spurs first things first now joined by Celtic Center and friend of the show and his canter. And it's good morning. Thanks for hanging out with us today. Happy Belated Birthday. We should mention celebrate. Geno we well. I'm not a lot of people are hey even staying busy. The last couple of weeks and months. How hard is training? Been knowing that the season could basically could be here right around the corner. You're just just because we don't know if this isn't gonNA continue or not. We try to do our best to just stay in shape so we had actually have this virtual workouts with the Celtics. We the we get on the call with frank coach and we literally just do push ups and sit ups and you know just some of the players doing workers and with suitcases because they don't have the tools to work out. I'm like that is going to bring us championship championship salary. So we literally charter the everything I love it and as they floated a lot of different potential playoff proposals. The two most likely are the regular playoffs. One versus eight one versus eight in the West. The other one is receding one through sixteen and odd quirk of it. Either way the Celtics would even playing the sixers in the first round whether the older the new playoff format what what are some of the strengths and weaknesses of that match. Up for you guys. Obviously our big rivals sixers from using years. But I think I think they match up where the to look at what happened during the season. They beat us. We beat them. I think a good matchup for then I think I believe my team man I think we can go. I feel like we have enough guys to go out there and win a championship Oculus. We can beat every every floor but we just gotTa go out there and just be ready as stay in shape and just squad on. Games are GOING TO HAVE NO FANS. You're a guy who thrives off the enthusiasm of the crowd. Bryan had a quote where he was saying that he also is off like the visiting team to like quiet down. How are you going to motivate yourself? How do you think the floor of the game is going to change with a silent arena? Listen out under arresting Fan but I watch wrestlemainia. Eighty one of the most awkward and more the most weirdest Say what I ever watched but I think you know I feel like we all all basketball player just to go out and play basketball. I feel like we can just take anything right now. Own only thing we gotta hear about balancing but I think I think you know I. It's GONNA be fine. I'll take anything right now the asking me well. That's interesting so I'm curious if you've spoken to not just your teammates but other players around the league what they want to see a playoff format look like when you come back one of the players in the general consensus to be what they think would be the best option for you guys. I'll tell you this I talked to my team. And they'll want to go out there and play but I'm hearing some of the players. Are there in other TV that they do not WanNa play because they are scared. They're they're they're saying I don't WANNA put my life on risk and just go out there and play a game and I'll was by that. I was seriously shocked by that but I think if you ask them my might seem both ways you end up play sixers and be confident about it. We just gotTa go out there and just do what we do best compete. Let's assume the season does resume? I've heard very different points of view. On what types of teams or players will most benefit or most be hurt by a layoff? I've heard people say with veteran team should be in better position because they have a system they give you their bodies and shape and some people have said the exact opposite. The younger guys are always good to go. I've heard people say shooting. Never leave June. I've heard people say everyone's shots going to be off as a player yourself. What are some of the things that you think will click back into gear immediately or soon to be? And what some things that you think are going to show the most rust. I mean if the players say that they're engaged they're lying because game shape is a different type of shape. I mean it doesn't matter how much you run. How much you play. Do any activities you. You cannot be in game shape unless you play game so I think if you ask them Mike Mike. Game was always just you know. Just play physical rebounds and play. Paul start came back to the basket so I don't think I will I will. I'm going to be struggled that much because like the south is doing an amazing job keeping our focus physically embiid mentally right so I feel like we just gotTa go out there and play hard place to have had fun with it. Homecourt advantage Janice trying to figure out what this is like is going to feel more like your home court because you're there all the time and you're living there or is it going to feel like an away game because it's not your home court. How is that going to determine the flow of the series? We're so used to. Hey we'll just win home games and we can power through. How do you think a neutral court affects the flow of a playoff series? I it's going to be fair because I it's it's going to get like an never trucks before feel like on forty second feel we underwrote so. I think it'd be just because they're going to do one or two location. I feel like It's fair to say The Barclay it has the same thing you know but I think it's GonNa be very interesting because NBA or never face like that before. So I feel like we just need to fill whichever team get used to the most is going to have the most benefits. Hannah's I want to ask you a very important question here. Rob Gronkowski's resume reads like this football wrestling you have mentioned that after the NBA. You would definitely dip your toes into the wwe. I know you're going back into the NBA with the season starting soon but any updates on that you've been watching but what about as a career move talking about the wrestling right so like I. I'm in touch with Paul Heyman. I remember last time I saw triple H. She told me to keep a number in a and so like it's gotTa be fun man because I feel like I feel like this is my life. You know trolling going out there. Trash Trash Tokens of people. Get on people's space so I think it's going to be fun and I'm like I even told Paul Paul set. Hey let's go out and do like dude. You gotta give me a four five more Houston. Just finish by all your. I'm only human guy. And he was just so excited and I can say this because innocent. I are now close personal friends as the video. Just showed not shockingly in his didn't have a lot of trouble getting the title had immense trouble defending the title though as he was pinned immediately. I think you were the shortest twenty. Four seven champion ever Gras still has the twenty four seven belt. Oh Oh yeah I did say I say I would be your tag team partner when both of us retired and I feel like it could work out the hair. What about what about the around with why I love it? So you and me tag team partner like a big little situation. Food Turkish delight okay. We Go Turkey light. Okay pretty good while just to keep the focus on you and it's earlier in the show. We did a little predictions straight seeds. And Nick has got you beating the sixers but losing to the bucks. What do you need to do to get past? Yanni's listening nick. I hope you still keeping the jurors that I could give it to you. I hope you burn that but now I believe I believe that. We're going to pass the sixers for sure. But I'd like the. The bus is GonNa be a tough match up but I think we have just gardy honest and the whole box man because if you look at what happened during the season they got us we got Bam so he's going to be a performance the finals. I believe anti go head. Nick I was just going to say under the new format I do. Have you beating the clippers? So I do give you credit that. If it's the new format beaten the clippers riding the bus all the way go ahead I apologize say under our new foam format. Nick hasn't had a haircut in three months. I know that we're making fun of his lack of hair. Now we give you carte blanche quickly with a few seconds left to make fun of the current situation on top of his head so go ahead and use up your last couple of seconds here with that because it's worth it. I actually just caught my own hair yesterday just for the show I had. I just get jealous like you know. It's actually pretty good tennis. I'm now rooting for the sixers. Next time I'll awful.

Can Tom Brady Succeed In Tampa? + Interview w/ Colts Linebacker Darius Leonard

"Good Tuesday morning to you. Everyone welcome to first things. First some gentle wolf alongside Nick Right Kevin. Wilde's Brian Westbrook is with us. This morning we got a great show for you today. Big Ben says he will be ready to go when the season Starts Cam. Newton is ready to go right now and twenty five hundred of Tom. Brady's most interesting words. That is where we will kick off the show this morning if you were wondering. Why Radi left of cushy New England job with benefits to take his talents to Tampa wonder no longer in an article. Tom Himself pens for the Players Tribune yesterday. Titled the only way is through. He wrote among other things. I have things to prove to myself. The only way is through. If I don't go for it I'll never know what I could have accomplished wanting to do. Something is different from actually doing it. If I stood at the bottom of the mountain and told myself I could scale the highest peak. But then didn't do anything about it. What's the point of that? We got a lot to unpack here this morning. Nick. I'll start with you. What did you take away from this article by Tom Brady? I am so excited this morning to talk about this because in a we're in a bit of a sports desert right now but this is a big meaty piece of news really because of what Tom Brady didn't say because what he did say gin and as you mentioned in the over twenty five hundred words is that he understood when he was growing up how to get West because you drove towards the Pacific Ocean. He didn't understand when he was growing up. Where exactly was knowing? That is a state of the territory's a collection of states. We learned about that. We learned about his mountain analogy. Which I think you've heard on this show a few months ago when I was talking about Tom Brady. We learned a lot. What we didn't learn though was what if any appreciation Tom Brady had for the other goat in the New England Patriots Organization. Bill Belichick because these twenty six hundred seventeen words. Tom Brady mentioned bill. Belichick's name precisely once and it was not to talk about what did do it was. Actually as one mention was belichick didn't do that didn't call him when he was drafted that his assistant burge called him instead. All these words about geography about family about his children about his past is present is future and not a single hat tip to the greatest coach of all time. Not a single coach. Bela check. Thank you for you know putting me in the starting lineup and keeping me in the starting lineup or coach. Bela check these super bowls. The first one we won when I only through duck down past the entire playoff run the second and third super bowls. We won when your defense held. Peyton manning's cults were to seventeen combined points and do playoff games. Or how about the most recent one we won writing. Come up with a touchdown at all in the game but your defense held the rams to three points. None of that anywhere in the article a lot of a lot of esoteric thoughts about his future but what he's trying to accomplish what time he has left a wild. I was shocked and if I were a patriot. Fan like you. I'd be offended on. Bella checks behalf that Tom Brady didn't find the or the words for thank you to his head coach. See Jenna what wild. This is like this this. This is nick getting into the Patriots nation and just trying to stir the pot he gets in tries to stir the pot and leaves all to the benefits of his chief. He's trying to get bell. Jack fired up. I thought this was pinpoint perfect. Tom Brady pinpoint perfect. Is Tom Brady? Won All those super bowls and just like Nick said just by he could win super bowls. By throwing just one touchdown. He was efficient and he was mistake. Free that's it. This was a piece of corporate literature sponsored by under armour there was other articles called only way through and bead wrote one. Anthony Joshua wrote one so the the goal of this article for Tom Brady was get through the article. Make some nice points. Don't turn the ball over and move on to oddly Howard Stern I think this article to the Howard Stern interview coming tomorrow is very odd. I don't quite know his like his public strategy. Here between this makes sense but the Stern interview tomorrow is kind of confusing to me. See Wilde's I think he used the right word strategic. I think much like we didn't really know what that Hulu was before the Super Bowl. It all made sense. I think there's some some planning some strategy here to Tom Brady. But let s the guy who actually played football. Brian Wounded. You'll learn about Tom. Brady himself after you read this article. Was there anything new you learned? Will you? There was a couple of new things that I'd be alert. But here's my thoughts either before the article came out that. I didn't think that there was anything else that Tom Brady had to prove. You know he's one six super bowls. He's been to nine. He's been the best quarterback over the last two decades. He just awesome and you play. He's done it all in one place but will you talk about the greatest competitors you talk about Jordan and coby in tiger and Tom Brady motivated by something much bigger than just winning games. Or what motivated by smuts things much bigger than what? I had thought Tom Brady. We'd been motivated by insights to me. It seemed like Tom Brady is motivated by the challenge. The challenge of going to a new place with new teams with new coaches in a new destination and finding a way to win the same way that breezed it at the same way that manning did it and now with faced with that challenge. I think that's something that he's very excited about. But I also think in my mind after reading this entire essay. I was still say that Tom. Brady's heart in his body and his soul is still in New England. Unfortunately they couldn't find a way to give them back there but it but it also made me think that Tom Brady probably mentally had checked out in New England a couple years ago similar to witness same for quite some time well interesting. He hasn't made certain ballot. Check just one six but his heart still in New England. Nick all of these things can be true but they're also there wasn't wasn't a college essay. Where if you go over the Word Count. You automatically fail. It's the Internet. It's not newsprint where you only have so many column inches. She could have at any point. Said and let me say this about. My coach of our relationship has been the subject of much speculation he did not Bella check conversely when he released a statement. Here's some exact quotes from Bill Bell. Check who by the way? His statement was two hundred sixty seven words almost exactly one tenth. The length of Tom Brady's piece he wrote our relationship is built on love. Admiration and respect. He called his career unfathomable unfathomably pardon me spectacular said. It was a privileged to coach. Tom Brady said his grill. Be celebrated forever said the examples of greatness are limitless said quote. I am extremely grateful for what he did for our team. And for me personally and the final line sometimes in life it takes some time to pass before truly appreciating someone. But that has not been the case with Tom. He is a special person. And the greatest quarterback of all time I would ask. Why would you say I'm trying to stir up Patriot nation? I listen Bella check. I know it's hard for you to for you to your mind around because you're still in the denial face the Patriot nation. I am defending right now because Belgium is still a part of it. Tom Brady is no longer a part of it and as a Patriot Fan. Your head coach handled this right but I do wonder if your former quarterback could learn from your head coaches final line sometimes in life it takes time to pass before truly appreciating someone and I do wonder when Bruce Arians is telling him to take seven step drops and rub some dirt on it and the defense is allowing twenty eight or thirty one points and Tampa even though. That's a very good defense. If that is win Brady might appreciate wildlife key had with Bill Baligian because right now it seems like it is still very raw. Kevin and there are still some open. Wounds there on Brady's back okay. Here we go so I've got two boys and they'll be sitting next to each other and the one we'll start poking the other one essay. Russ just ignore Polka Polka or US just eventually it explodes. And that's a knick you have accomplished it now. I'm ready to go and if you were tried is through the pot you did it. Here's the thing you're right. It could've gone on. He said a lot of things about bill belichick. Maybe there's another. Maybe there's another article coming grabs part of me. Thinks that only ways through it is not part of the UN is the under armor way to address the situation and talking about. Your coach doesn't fit within the brand parameters of the article but the next point part of me thinks that Tom Brady needs to reciprocate the beautiful article that Bill. Check wrote about him that beautiful press release. He hasn't done any of that he wrote goat on the NFL. One hundred instagram. That's all we've heard. So yes nick. You're right if it goes around another time I will graduate up and get further and further angry. But yes you've got me congratulations now. I'm upset early in the morning. Here's what I'm wondering guys. Who Do you think is being more honest? Tom Brady Pennine is twenty. Five hundred word article mentioning Bills L. Check one time or bill belichick writing two hundred and fifty some odd words and gushing over. Tom Brady. They both seem added character for both of them. So what do you want the guy who seems to be more honest or the guy who you know was just writing? Because that's what people want or need to hear. I also had this question for you. Brian West. Who Do you think Tom Brady was writing? This four was in just for himself so he could get himself motivated. Th there's usually an audience when you sit down to write something like this. Do you think he was writing it for the biggest person and people that I think he was right into was the patriots fans. How much he loved them. How much he did things in New England? How much he he? He loved raising his boys there I think Tom Brady enjoyed his time in New England. Also think that Tom Brady looks at superstar. Athletes like Kobe and and dirt Levinsky and says you know what they played their entire career in one place and the ownership in the coach's respect enough even after some of their prime years. We're over that they kept them there. They found a way to make it in. I believe there Tom Brady. And this is the reason I believe even mentioned Bill Belichick more than that one time was because he feels like listen. You could have found a way to keep me there. I was so bad last year. Matter of fact we were twelve four last year as far as on the season as a team. I wasn't so bad I asked you that you needed to find a different way to go with a different type of quarterback. Maybe if you put more weapons around me then at that point we could be more successful. If I'm Tom Brady. I still be a little salty as well. Listen look what I brought to this organization and you're willing to let me go at the tail end of my career. If you could give me a couple more years maybe I could have spent my entire career here in New England and I think that would've made Tom Brady very happy nifty. Tom Angry when he wrote this. Do you think that? Sort of the underlining emotion while he wrote it. Listen I know it seems like and maybe understandably that I'm GonNa Poking wild somewhat attacking Brady here. I I think what I'm doing is an accurate portrayal of what we saw and it might at the moment appear unflattering for Brady but of course he's upset of course skis angry and all year long. I explained why he should be. I think Brady was very good last year. I think the numbers prove that but he believed understandably that might twenty years of Goat's status that the fact that I have to separate first ballot all of being rears. We learned yesterday that he was going to be unanimous first team or unanimous all decade team in two different decades that that would have bought him more than just a two hundred and fifty word article. I'm sure Brady is thinking. Yeah the art. Your statement was Nice. Your signature on a contract would have been far better so he I I would imagine is upset about that but where I struggle right now the most with Brady as far as a kind of giving him a pass on all of this is wilds. You you alluded to it. But there is something clunky to me about Tom. Brady's statement about leaving the Patriots. Think about what this is. This is a piece of sports. History said document that if we had what the Smithsonian is for actual history for sports it would go in there that it's really just an under armour plug like what if Lebron's letter to the city of Cleveland the oncoming back was and that's why I decided I had to just do it and go back to Cleveland going to be like. Oh there's Celena sneakers here Braun like the only way is through. Oh oddly enough. That's what CAM has said. And that's what Anthony Josh was said. And I imagine steph curry when he comes back from a hand injury next season. The only way is through like you didn't need this to be product placement. Tom Just like he didn't need and I know I'm the only one still brings it up to do the little super bowl hijacking a few days before we go instagram at. There's some things going on with this. Tom Brady two point. Oh three point. Whatever it is and we're going to get to see the next layer of it. Wild Win third person warm weather. Tom lets loose as he said in a more on Howard stern so the all those things happened Kevin and I don't. I don't love that Tom. Brady's farewell to the Patriots is is under armor. Add in twenty six hundred words so yesterday. Geno we did a drive by happy birthday for my friend in the neighborhood we got in the car. We saying happy birthday to him as from the car and social distance and he said I was a show. Sales shows going good with no sports that he's like. I'm dying without in these sports. What are you guys talking about? I was like oh Tom Brady. Just put out this article. And he said he did. Y are is keep without a video to as he's like why is he doing this? I'm not I'm not totally sure. I'm not totally sure. So the strategy of this I think is weird but just to bring it back to football for a second. I think you're seeing Tom. Brady's conservative mistake free nature here of just kind of like being safe and putting out a very safe article I think. That's actually a clash with Bruce. Arians no risk it no biscuit style. I don't know is it fair to say like how you act in the media's how you actually play kind of we've seen Tom Brady be very very safe and the way. He acts on the football field. I wonder what warm weather time? We'll be if he's going to be willing to be throwing the ball throwing the ball all over the field like Jamie Simpson worked up. Tom Brady is going to be a new guy now. Time for drawing a blank thirty year old free agent Cam. Newton is still looking for a team to call home very unfamiliar territory for him. How unfamiliar he said yesterday. I'm a fish out of water. Nick Cam Nunes. Twenty twenty season will be blank before I let me quickly say my answer. Here is really predicated on Kevin. Wilde's edition to the show one of the reasons. I'm so thrilled Kevin's on the show. 'cause it's sports to expand my brain and try to think outside the box a bit. So Cam Nunes Twenty twenty season. We'll be Robert Downey JR junior's two thousand eight. What happened Robert? Downey junior in two thousand eight iron men came. The thunder came out the Zodiac. Just come out. And everyone's like Oh. Yeah this guy's a superstar. What happened to him? Why did everyone act like this guy wasn't good anymore? He's always been awesome. He's Alastair same thing that happened with Cam. You Ban bounces around freedom to get released by the panthers catches on somewhere and in twenty three and be like Oh yeah. He's one of the ten best quarterbacks alive. He's a superstar. He's an a-list her. Why was he ever available so Brian Westbrook Cam? Newton's twenty twenty is going to be Robert Downey Juniors two thousand eight. What say you Brian. Westbrook Nice as twenty twenty season. We'll be unpredictable. And here's the thing we've seen all the videos of cam looking like he's in the best shape of his life throwing the football working on his body. I mean his body looks great. I mean. You're talking about bodybuilding and those types of things but the biggest question why predictable because the injuries and I've dealt with a bunch of injuries throughout my career and you never know no matter which shape how those injuries will pop up. Liz Frank. The shoulder ankle all those different things. Could pop up at the wrong time in. So that's why say unpredictable. Jen? I'M GONNA go with Ray Allen Esq when Ray Allen came into the league is flying around. He was dunking whose only shooting three point six three game. Fast for ten years round shooting eight threes a game and he wins Lebron Championship. So when Cam ends up on the Patriots I think Bell Jack Is GonNa totally change his game. There's GONNA be no more jumping over the pile. There might be that little Tom Brady. Qb sneak that's very safe. But Ray Allen Esq is what I'm going with Jenna stuff. Let's move on to Tom Brady now. His resume that reads like a novel. At this point he was a unanimous selection. For the two thousand. Ten's all decade team yesterday. Pair that with his two thousands all decade team honors and Brady becomes the first quarterback to make to all decade teams. Nick Rate Sprays. Latest accomplishment is blank never happening again. This is where Tom. Brady's greatness is actually understated historically I think now. There is a bit of luck in this in that in order to do this. Your rookie season really needs to be at the very beginning of a decade. So you so two decades really. You're twenty years span exactly two decades but even with that happening. He had to make the most out of every single season available to him. I don't think we will ever see this at the quarterback position again. We'd never seen a prior. We had only seen a few skill position. Guys ever do it. Jerry Rice dated Walter. Payton did it some offensive lineman and defensive. Lineman have done it but at the quarterback spot. Even my Guy Mahomes in order to do it. He could play like twenty-five years because he came to the league in two thousand seventeen so I never happening again. Brian Westbrook. It's one of his top of the resume. Accomplished his ability to make two all decade. Teams is simply amazing. And here's the reason why I understand as an athlete you can go through a ten year span and be at the top of your game but also understand you gotTa Hill. There's a down part of that. He'll equalised flipper Tom to be able to span another ten year of another decade. Still be at the top wind super bowl. That's simply amazing. You're right. I don't think anyone else would ever be able to do it. Especially with one team of the way they're Tom Brady has been able to build the exact opposite direction. I won't with commonplace. I think this is going to happen moderately often because all the trends are pointing to longer and longer longevity for quarterbacks thinking about the guys who are playing now big Ben Philip Rivers. Aaron Rogers says he wants to play till he's forty drew brees. It's all like big. Ben Is the picture of Health for his career. Any any certainly wasn't twenty years ago so now guys are coming up. They're going to be like. Wow I can play on forty. There's five guys playing forty Trevor Lawrence when he's with the Patriots and Twenty. Forty Nick or doing this show again markdown. Remember I told you in Twenty Twenty intro to Lawrence is going to be able to do this like all right. Why did you go to long? Grey beard like. I forgot about that. So write that down in the Google Doc guys for twenty forty Kevin if we're still doing the show at twenty forty trevor. Lawrence is not going to be our biggest issue sticking with Tom Brady now. He released his Players Tribune article yesterday explaining his departure from the Patriots. He used twenty five hundred words some words he used more than once like the and so some words he used only once like ballot check and who cares with other words because ballot check is the only one we are interested in Nick Brady leaving ballot check out of his article. Save one time is blank just question but just on us in the shown twenty forty three by the way one of your watching right now and I hope you are because it's on F S. One all sign that contract today. I'll sign the contract today to do the show till twenty forty. No questions asked and if we are doing until twenty forty Janet will still be claiming to be in her early forties. Amazing that happens now. Throw Shot Brady only mentioning Bill. Bella check in this article one dime and it was to say. Gee What Bell Jack. Did he do? Which is he didn't go home on draft. Day is warm weather Tom. I mean I just feel like this. Is the Tom Brady Point? Oh you told us warm weather Tom. Lets loose warm weather. Dom evidently doesn't give thanks words. Do warm weather. Tom Forgets about the people who helped him get to where he is. So the answer to this Brian. Westberg for me is warm weather Tom. The real answer. That is telling fifth telling how Tom Actually feels about bill. Belichick how he feels about having to act up all these things in New England and movies is England down to Florida and figuring things out down there and also shows you the feeling that he probably have quite some time and not being able to get the contracts being the goat the goat you'll never get pushed out of an organization will say you can't come back. They say things like they said. You're dirk who couldn't even run his last couple of years in Dallas. Say Listen you can play here as long as you. WanNa play basketball. That's what they should have been saying. The Tom Brady play here in New England as long as you want to play. And it's very telling that he skipped bill belichick name except for Jen. I'm going with my leaky fridge. We moved into this house or like. Oh this is nice kitchen. It's got a sink with a long handle you can pull and wash the dishes and it's got some nice cabinets. This is great and then the bridge started leaking. It's in my basement and I got paint everywhere and we had to pay someone to come fix it all and it's leaking again looking at Brown water stains everywhere. And here's why I say leaky fridge. Sorry Tom Brady Yeah. All the outside looks is more of that. And it's also the within within the Patriots Organization going on a leaky fridge for the Patriots and I'm not the first thing. Thank you all right well. Let's continue to discuss Tom. Brady and perhaps wild infrastructure at his home the Tampa Bay box apparently had codename for landing. Tb twelve calling the pursuit of Brady operation. Shoeless Joe Jackson. I guess if you build it. Nick the bucks having a codename. Thank here we go real serious codename. Listen I consider myself and a level historian I consider myself a pretty decent football story in I will admit dog and so when it comes to my baseball history but if I'm not mistaken shoeless Joe. Jackson was art of the most notorious cheating scandal in the history of baseball right. He was on that team. But shoeless Joe Famously. The belief is he didn't engage in the cheating along with the rest of his teammates. So my answer is it's ironic because I'm not saying. The Patriots have engaged in two decades of breaking wolf. I am saying is there have been a lot of allegations despite all those allegations. There's only been one player who actually was punished by the League for engaging in it was one grant wasn't adamant hold on wasn't there you go Mr quarter of this for you know his forties involvement in the ball of leading scandal so in respect to the lake. Great Shoeless Joe. I would say it's ironic that they gave this. The Tom Brady operation is named Brian. Westbound actually liked that a lot. I didn't think about that but I'M GONNA say they're hungry. Hungry to win down there in Tampa Bay. They tried to find a winner. They got a bunch of talent. The offense is out of the ball but in the defense played very well the last three games of the season. They just need a quarterback that you know you don't have the FRO thirty touchdowns but you definitely cannot throw thirty interceptor. That they can find a guy and they found that guy and Tom Brady. Who'S NOT GONNA turn the ball over can win some game? The other thing that I thought about that I didn't mention is that it's Kinda corning. Just go get the best quarterback out there for the point that you're talking about shoeless. Joe Jackson. Will you talk about the goat? Tom Brady Nick Corny. It is a little weird I like all of it. I like all of it. I also like the fact that my answer bothered wild so much he left. I opie comes back. Thank God knows he knows deep down that it is ironic that you were right all of it and wild listen. So here's what we need to do. I think we need to call wild amazing libby have heard check on him and hopefully he'll be back with his head intact as we continue the television show joining us now called. Oprah linebacker various London. Theory's good morning. Thank you so much for being with us. We hope you and your family are well and safe. And we're going to jump right in your outside. We're stuck inside. Looks Glorious and lovely there tell us a little bit about what your quarantine time has looked like the last couple of weeks. I wasn't Tampa Florida. And once they should. If thank down in Tampa I came back down to South Carolina. Just be around the family and you know still working out at five in the morning eight inches kinda relaxed Premier Darius. I think a lot of people know your story of the last two years and simply walked into the NFL as an all pro level player. Nearly three hundred tackles in two seasons one of the absolute best players in the League through only two years. But I don't know how many people know about the story beforehand. You had some tragedy early in your life. You wanted to go to clemson where your brother went. Didn't get an offer you end up at South Carolina state which has some amazing football and political alumni. But it's obviously not division one program. Can you tell the audience a little bit about your path to the NFL? Because I think it's an amazing story you know first of all. I went to a small high school here in South Carolina. So you know just being overlooked Coming out of high school like I said No data have any big time offers. Soccer out of state was the only big offered I had. I went to South Carolina. Stay was planned receiver and linebacker position. I was GONNA play Then I moved the line backing up. You know. Just Evan had dog mentality wanted to prove everybody wrong. And you know just getting everything out of the gutter out of the gutter. You know that made me Today just pushing distracting to be the best Daria or no. You're on the other side of the ball. But you guys added Philip rivers as your quarterback. Now what was your initial reaction in hearing the news into? Does Philip Rivers leadership have any carry over to the defense or the entire team You know what I I started out you know. It was very shocking. Definitely looking forward to him coming in being competitor that he is better than that. He is Leadership skills you know being a quarterback you know that that leadership role is much bigger than office. His side of the ball you know they they show exactly what it takes to be a NFL ballplayer and they show. How do how to write bang? So I do think that he's leadership role in spill over Trudeau deep inside a ball and Glove Darius. This has been an off season full of rumors of quarterbacks circulating around wondering where everyone's GonNa end up you guys got Philip Rivers. There were reports that the colts were interested in getting Tom Brady. Is there something to knowing that this is probably Tom? Brady's last team last contract. There's there's something to wishing that you could ever wondered what it would have been like to play on a team with a guy who many people call the greatest of all time I mean there sometimes what you do think What would it be like to play against you know play with Tom? Brady no L. Been the greatest of all time leader being his time superbowl champion. You know you wanna be around someone who knows how to their brains a load of big or you know just practice you know day in day to make yourself better so I mean you know. There are things that you do really think about a band quarterback like that. We've talked a lot about quarterbacks dairies. I want to ask you about the guy who played quarterback for you for the majority of your first two seasons. Jacoby I I love love. You guys looked like the best team in the division until he got hurt. I know he came back and played through the injury but he wasn't really himself. What Net when you signed Philip Rivers? Twenty five million. It becomes his job so to speak to you. Jacobi is a starting quarterback in this league and at his best. How do you think you guys have been go ahead? Oh let's see the question was we were five and two with him. One hundred percent You know then he got hurt and you know. Kinda took a toll of his game a little bit especially with his needs as a quarterback yet have the lowest grant and I really do think. He's a core of starting quarterback Matt. Thank if he stayed healthy the whole year. Lash Ban Playoff contender team and probably run deep in the playoffs. Daring switch gears a bit here last month. We had a big day in my house. My son who's in kindergarten came home and said he was engaged if proposed to someone in kindergarten and my wife and I said we entertained his. Oh that's funny that's cute and we pretended to you. Know a little lip service to it. But then I read your story and that you make your wife in kindergarten so I said Oh my goodness I tell my wife Karla seriously should I be taking my son's proposal? You might want to tell you serious because I I remember when I was younger. You know all life gala family back in kindergarten and now that we've made and we have a family who would have thought off at around in kindergarten really came true so you might want to. You want to pay serious attention. I like it all right. Darius. Let's let's return to focus back on the field. The of the privilege of playing the titans twice a year which means you have the plural edge of plane and tackling the League's leading rusher in Derrick. Henry what was that like? And what are you now that you've played against it and tried to stop it. What do you look forward next season? Every there. There is a a great running back and you know playing against him twice a year definitely challenge. He's always say he's a defenseman plan planning right back. I'm small linebacker. He always me. Maybe twenty twenty to thirty pounds and know a guy like me. I love all always as now decided to buy the dog. And you know just basically him. It makes me so much better in my game. And you know having my deepest line coming back and adding some new to new face to the divas alive having the same linebacker core and you know we always says eleven eleven versus Warren. Against tackler him. So you know we have got to have everybody go to the ball. People watching this interview would be might be surprised if they don't already know this. Your nickname is the maniac or maniac. You very understated your Chil- you met your wife when you were five and family man. How did the nickname come about? And why do you embrace it on many a name came about my junior after outlet against Clemson? I had nineteen tackles and a blog bill goal and I came back on campus and someone said may straight maniac and once they said I kind of went with it and you know me on it. Bill VERSUS OFF. The field is two different guys automobile on my hair running around jumping up and down going crazy just trying to make every single play. Dan With multiple. You know on the most polite guy very well mannered and nobody would think that the guy that's on appeal at the same time. I embrace both terrorists. You guys finish the season one in four kind of like a lackluster finish. What do you need to do this? Upcoming year to carry your momentum that had earlier in the year all the way through got to be more consistent speed on defensive side of the ball me defensive leader. I really depends. We was inconsistent. Sometimes over a a great first half and then we go out and don't play as well so we gotta see exactly. What was the difference between outbursts? Half the second half ballgames Biz. Whatever problem that we have and ultimately his league and hopefully we can integrate running. They'll have exits game this year. When you were an eighth grade teacher asks you what you want to be when you grow up and very confidently just wrote down a professional football player in kindergarten. You met your friend and you're like yet that's going to be my wife. I love that you had most of your life set out for you long before the rest of us did we thank you so much for joining us this morning. It's been a pleasure getting to know you again. Good loss this season and thanks morning. You're not GonNa want to miss this the newest Baltimore Raven albro defensive. End Clay's Kimmel will be joining us talking about his latest honor of joining me. Twenty ten all decade team among other things not gonna WanNa miss it more morning on first things first time now for stories to start your morning sticking with the twenty tens all decade team. Tom Brady. Jj Watt and Adrian Peterson. Were among the eight unanimous. Fix the other quarterback joining Brady was Aaron Rodgers. Nick drew brees get snubbed for Rogers here no I. I don't understand the uproar about this. I get the fact that breezed through for more touchdowns and had more yards this decade. However this decade Aaron Rodgers won a super bowl. Breeze did not this decade Aaron Rodgers won two league. Mvp Breeze one zero. This decade. Aaron Rodgers was first team. All pro twice brees was first of all pro zero times. Aaron Rodgers was the next best quarterback and most well maybe the best quarterback of the decade. But certainly the second most accomplished behind Brady so I feel badly for breeze but much like Dan Marino. Brees is going to go his whole career without ever being on all decade team. Wild seems impossible. But that's what happened to Marino in the eighties nineties. That's what's happening to breeze in the two thousand two thousand ten's Kevin Wilde's I make. I think somebody's gotta be out. That's just the way it goes so we look at this neck next decade nick. I'm just GONNA put a little scare too. You support to is going to come out and Trevor Lawrence. We both think they're going to be great. We know tomorrow is GONNA be Great. There could be a point in ten years is it Trevor Lawrence Lamar Jackson. And we're like we're doing the show in two thousand thirty now we're like. Wow Nick how upset are you? That Patrick Mahomes did not make the list fair and by the way why the the argument is Cabrera's broke. I know people are saying drew. Brees get good snubbed. I mean if I'm being honest I feel like maybe mahomes got snubbed a bit. I mean he did win an MVP in a super bowl. This decade Butts speaking here was coming from an at some point. Patrick Mahomes had to be brought up in the show in in if wade into the segments of bring them up which is kinda surprising there he usually likes to bring. Patrick mahomes up at the start the show. But you know what juries was nest knob this as missed the playoffs four times in this past decade in fact they were seven and nine. And we're talking about one of the best. Quarterbacks that have ever played game drew brees. I do not expect this football team to miss the playoffs. Three years in a row two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen and really also didn't expect him to lose this year in the wildcard round to the Minnesota Vikings in kirk cousins and so because of all those things. I'm not surprised that he did not make the all decade team. Tom Brady has now made to all decade teams. The first quarterback to accomplish nick. This Nikki think we ever see a quarterback this again no and this speaks to. Brady's unprecedented greatness if you were to buy sex Tom. Brady's career in twenty ten what you would have is to separate first ballot hall of fame careers he and Jerry. Rice are the only two guys who've cut their career and half not only are they to great careers. They are both hall of Famers Brady from. Oh One to twenty ten three super bowl championships. Four appearances to Super Bowl. Mvp's and Julie MVP's that makes him one of the ten greatest quarterbacks ever Brady from twenty eleven to right now three super bowl championships. Five appearances to Super Bowl. Mvp'S AND ONE LEAGUE MVP. That makes him one of the ten greatest quarterbacks ever wild. I don't believe we will ever see this again. It was a perfect storm and Brady. Oddly accomplished almost identical almost identical accomplishments in the twenty off and the two thousand ten. That's how you become first team all decade for the twenty odds and unanimous for the two thousand ten seven wilds Ryan. Oddly I'M GONNA. I think this is going to be commonplace. I think there's two reasons one the NFL. Rules are all trending towards quarterback safety to nutrition. Tom Brady eating right and having avocado shakes every morning. It's GONNA be everybody so when Trevor Lawrence comes into the League. He looks around saying. Wow I can play for twenty years. I think this is going to be moderately. Common to see quarterbacks play for two decades and we'll get a few people who are leaping both decades to be an all decade team player. We're Kevin I think it kind of makes sense that players in their future may be able to play longer maybe even twenty years. But that's not what Tom Brady did. That wasn't the only thing that Tom Brady did. Tom Brady was great for two decades. He just wasn't playing. He just wasn't guy. He was in his prime for two decades. And that's the hard thing to be able to do because at some point in your rear you have to decline just because your skill set and bother time is undefeated and so this thing that is going to be almost impossible to find someone else to be able to compete at this high level for two decades and the way that Tom Brady has done. And if I if I can eat about this as well I apologize Geno. That's my mistake. I just do expand all answer. The question thing about the guys Brady kept off the list. Drew brees never made one big Ben ally. Manning Philip Rivers Russell Wilson. Kurt Warner all these great quarterbacks who never made an all decade team in part because Brady was always taken up a spot but to answer your question. The other thing I took away from this list was what I want to say. The Patriots were the team of the decade. But we're the chiefs the team of the decade. I just see chiefs all over this list. Sean McCoy on the all decade team. He was a Jeep Drori. This was achieved Eric. Berry was achieve. But we certainly know next. Decade will be big. You was look it up. I mean we already know who the team of the next decade will be because because Kevin Wild do three active buyers on this list all decade saw all decade member honey Badger all decade member. Tyree kill not only all active. Not only all still in their prime all locked in to the defending super bowl champion. Kansas J.j for twenty twenty and twenty twenty one the first two years of the next decade so that was my other takeaway gentle Wolf's artist on the question earlier. I was just so excited to discuss this the chiefs arguably the team the last day nobody cared and now certainly why. It'd be the team of the next decade my fault. Forget him to iron up. We'll take this. There's nothing worse when the guys right. Here's my one counterpoint. Every player is getting a little bit worse injuries. Just the NFL's top sport and it's just getting a little bit worse except there's one guy on. That list was getting better. He's just getting smarter. It's Bill Belgium being coach of the decade. He's actually just wanted to get better. And better and better as the chiefs this way. Bingo you're going to ballot. Check them. Oh going this way. That's my retort Brian. You Know Kevin. I wish that ballot check would get better. That means that he was able to win without the best quarterback of all time and Tom Brady and I just don't know at that can happen when you mentioned coach and I look at this list. I had to bring up my old football coach. Andy Reid he took a Kansas City. Chief team that was two and fourteen when he got. There had a bunch of pro bowlers but didn't know how to play together. That was two and fourteen April that team into a situation where they had one double digit games in each of the next several years. Two Thousand Fourteen and a super bowl as well in. Nick talks about the players on the all decade team. A lot of that has to do with the guidance and the leadership that Andy Reid brought to that organization. You have to have him on that list. If you're talking about all decade as well as you should have been the Carol. You'RE OUT OF HERE. Should've been on there and Jenna we're looking to the two thousand twenty. West said I wait every day to get mahomes into the show turning question. He's going to be the all decade quarterback of the next decade Travis. Kelsey you're going to do it back to back just like Brady. Did Johnny Badger. Why Eric Berry might come back here. It's all coming up chiefs in two thousand twenty American I. He doesn't stop when the camera goes off. He's going to keep going. We have to stop. Stay well stay safe tomorrow.

Does Zeke need more touches?, How concerning is Mahomes' injury?, Nick ranks the Top 8 best NFL teams

"Artsy we've talked about how how the cowboys get themselves back on track it does that involve getting Ezekiel Elliott Moore throughout the games the one thing about Taoist is it it's so funny because when we cover the cowboys we always talk about that a six thirty A._M.. Eastern for Chris Carter Nick Right on Jenna Wolfe Song rebutting Comedienne ochre game they have nearly no path to victory they and then if it's somewhere in the middle there somewhere in the middle so whether it's through the offensive line play calling abandoned the run because they were getting annihilated four of those or three point games or less it is truly if Zeke has a great game the cowboys are nearly unbeatable if he has we said he had leverage in his holdout in an era where running backs never have leverage is because this is still true he's the most important and dynamic player on they have replacement players so if they don't come up with some different scheme you're going to see Zeke's numbers continue to be just mediocre so too bring on more tight end Jason witten playing better as supposedly once upon a time a really good blocker whatever it is the reason they gave Zeke one hundred million dollars the reason perhaps a lot of it was because Jerry Jones was negotiating with Zeke Jerry Jones Stevens said we're going to go into the season focused a little bit more on the pass and not as much reliant on and it seems like they're going to get to that level the last couple of years they've been very inconsistent and because of injuries and because maybe they're a little overrated but shoe with how Dallas is using them but the more important point is his importance we know they are one and eight when he doesn't have seventy five yards rushing in his career maybe just I wanna get Zeke started but I need a steam to get him started we are not the Dallas cowboys of three years ago weaken lineup in a regular set in just knock you off the ball do not that way they got replacement players left tackle replacement player at right tackle the best part of that offensive line is right in the offense and the cowboys last four years don't have a history of success that doesn't involve Zeke Elliott playing great football if you remember in the off season offense lime wet and good but that was bad like zinc can't be great that can't agree unless that offensive line gets back to where they used to be Ezekiel Elliott but but how much of it is that Kellen Moore is just scheming and more pass happy offense and maybe the goal is not to run everything through Zeke or or is it just thirty five yards last week the fewest rushes of the season twelve when you're down thirty one two three one point and football game you're going to be taken out of your run game so I don't have an run the ball with the wide receivers run a few more speed sweeps you have to be creative in the running game now is when a young coordinator in Kelham more like you get one we knew he was on a pitch count they blew out the giants anyway so it didn't matter week four he added eighteen carries he's just couldn't run the ball against New Orleans they tried to feed him all eighteen it's morning that fifteen in two seven of those are one score games they are the and by the way those those times he was there one eight when he doesn't have seventy five yards because on this one about how they're using him and the other about the importance of Zeke plan well how they're using him I don't really take issue with his touches are down why well because when we no the center and right guard and you have to be able to generate the power that offense right through the middle and how I'm going to be able to do that you have to do it a lot of different ways I would they have been exceptional running it they couldn't get any better at running the football the only way they can get better is doing things either getting the same yard it's running the ball by l. you'd better try to play at least one tied in at all times and I would try to play is up we're as much as much as three tight ends I would go unbalanced line yes fact that I dunno you you need to win just running for Dallas to get into the playoffs and for Dallas to be a super bowl contender you have to have variation within offense we now us talking about well how Zeke get back going we can talk about Zeke's we talk about that offensive line they better be creative maybe to try to do some different things important they're fifteen and two when he has at least a buck ten now sometimes that can be misleading and it's like okay well yeah because they were blowing out so they've had the running back no I dove into it like an idiot saying oh zeke needs thirty carries where are you going to run to because they're gonNA have a lot of opposite color jerseys in the backfield off that left edge and off that right age the test him and see if he if he's worth money all right him and John Kitten at a new quarterback coach you have to be creative when you have injuries yes we know you have to run the ball but I can't expect that then you start to see explosive plays but for them to reach their potential they gotta build throw the ball and throw the ball down the field we can sit here and be like oh Zeke's numbers the proper balance is the wide receivers have to consistently make plays and they haven't been able to do that the most consistent thing has been Ezekiel Elliott so yes he is the table center this that will get you ten and six that will get you maybe one playoff win it won't get you know Super Bowl trophy so yes they do have to have balance but in doing that and I believe it's training camp you don't see the big run by Zeke you don't see that forty fifty are running a new ad one of those in there every other game every game wanted a different way that buys getting guy outside now typically if they had their tackles I would say get the ball on the outside but one of the biggest difference in this year and previous year is for the Dallas cowboys and and they need him to be consistent but it's it's hard when you have that often blind that they had one lies very small point he also who is the heartbeat of the team and we've heard cowboys say this and it's also clear when you're watching him when he is eaten and he's running it is and feel the offense have it now momentum similar to couple years ago few years ago Cam Newton's MVP season when cam was doing the superman and doing the first down signals you could see the the exuberance in the almost momentum shift to his side of the ball I think Zeke does the same thing for being missing out a lot on Dallas I believe their biggest problem is that current MVP Patrick mahomes mobile superstar quarterback on pace for another incredible season but that mobility took a hit last week when his already injured ankle was stepped on by his teammate yesterday a collective sigh of relief as Mahomes said he should be good to go Sunday against the Texans Kenny you last year well a good week for all three units to look good they're taking on the jet Sunday so we'll see how they do their about mahomes injury he says it's it's good but it's it's good enough I'm a little concerned about it I mean you can't ignore what happened the last couple of weeks only one passing down into games and for the first time in the Patrick mahomes error the cheese were held underneath twenty six points scoring so it's got to be a little bit alarming if you're Andy Reid but ultimately run defense everybody wants talk about back talk about Zeke talk about Amari if that run defense continues to play that way then you can't win time of possession there is no this to any type of Comeback Look at the playoff game look at a couple of games this year them not been able to stop runners because they're under size and their linebackers aren't making the plays that they made ankle I'm not concerned if you look at the practice video from yesterday he didn't have any extra tape on the ankle in practice he's a young player in typically young players first things first joined by Super Bowl Champ Chris canty good morning Chris how you doing I'm doing well yourself I'm good ready to talk some football sued nothing to extend the down and give those receivers a little bit more time to uncover and create some separation has one of the things I'll be looking for this weekend to things as far as concern over Patrick Mahomes I trust him I trust that he's not gonNA put his quarterback in harm's way he's GonNa make sure that Pat Mahomes is healthy enough to go out there and make the requisite plays in order to allow the team to be composed it but when you look at how teams are defending this Kansas City chiefs passing attack a lot of man coverage it'll be interesting to see if pat mahomes can utilize his mobility Tom fit to secure the ankle a little better and we saw that week number one and we also saw it in last week's game so youth is on his side so I'm not take us talk about a different team checking in with the Kansas City chiefs only five games into the season and raining. MVP Patrick Mahomes is already a candidate they recover a lot faster so Sunday's injury he's back on the field he wasn't limited at practice didn't have the big bandage on it didn't have the spat typically over which he punch you in your throat and trying to run that football even though they have the prolific numbers the biggest problem in Kansas City is their defense and will they ever have learned about that if there's a concern that I have I'm not concerned about the man to man because I do believe that they'll start lining up in a few more bunch formations and you can get a little more picks a little more had during the game a spat is what the players put instead of taping their ankle they'll take outside the clete in taped a sock in everything it's more by running out the clock because he couldn't run because he was injured let's just say hypothetically how would he be able to do that because what I've seen to Andy Reid he's one of the best play callers the city is with Andy Reid is Andy Regan ever develop a running game so let's just say last week he did have the league how would they take the pressure off Patty mahomes eleven throws across his body it's unbelievable those types of plays that only he and maybe Russell Wilson can make and so the chiefs have to have that because some type of running game because even if he was injured if I will say okay he's injured what are we going to do how they going to protect them he could write he the chiefs have always been good under Dave Tob and then you have really the most important facet what can Patrick Mahomes do and that's where this concern exists uh-huh because when Sammy Watkins is not in their entire kills not in there they don't have a whole bunch of experience route runners so Andy Reid got a bill to help them out my biggest concern is Peter Statistically has not been much better that's one facet of the game then there's the offensive side of the ball you've already said the running game is a concern so what's left you got your specialty if this is a lingering injury that affects play Patrick Mahomes was never allowed to run it was a pure drop back passer I still believe he has the arm down to be couldn't protect them because there is no running and that's that's the key here so we know the chiefs defense last year was their undoing and this year while it has a lot of new talent new defensive top five quarterback in the league I think if he just simply stayed in the pocket statuesque he's still a top five guy but what makes him clearly the best quarterback in football years it's because of what they can do in the past name now he does it would appear have some reinforcements coming they think tyree kills probably going to play this week he is the one guy with add tyreek hill since the second quarter of the Jacksonville game that will be a huge addition but the chiefs path to the Super Bowl is Patrick mahomes winning league MVP again it's ever been in the NFL and over the last ten years him and Sean Payton are one and two Sean Payton running game some patients will design some stuff song Beijing is the homes being the best player in football again because that is what they built this team around so how much does the game plan change Sunday against the Texans if he's not he doesn't have the same blackens out that can beat man coverage and teams are afraid to play a lot of men coverage against tyreek hill because of his raw speed and his improvements as a route runner so that will the running game so I think that's what they have to look at but I mean as far as his importance to this team if pat mahomes has to miss any extended period of time the chief season is over from the stamp I'm but look for the tight end to be more involved because the wide receivers outside of been inconsistent city to get to three and two I understand the Houston Texans are getting the headlines in that division I trust this team's infrastructure their offense align their coaching far more than I do Houston I've got be a little bit of a challenge to Shawn Watson for five touchdown passes last week you might have to put some points on the scoreboard in order to try to get another win this week so it'll be interesting to look for them for the the reason the chiefs are a top five team in this league the reason the chiefs are right mind the patriots favored to go to the Super Bowl is because I am him and that passing attack because the point of trying to accomplish what they set out to do this season which is compete for championship they doing it without fifteen on the field so absolutely that's why you have to keep an eye on his ankle injury please that combined with the improvisation you mentioned only one touchdown the last two games you're correct it was one hell of tops johnny roles who is right rolled rolls back roads to throw a scare into the New England patriots the buffalo bills some people's preseason wildcard pick out of the AFC some people are they are overcoming what is because it is one of those things where you're trying to position yourself to compete and you know that the New England patriots are trying to position themselves try to have home field advantage this time around either averaging two hundred yards rushing per game we saw Nikki Bosa have his first real flash game of his very young career niners number six okay why aren't they hire I need to see them beat a few more teams from questions about the receivers and maybe even their quarterback still the San Francisco Forty niners though what they have done on the ground terrible quarterback play to consistently be a good team. I think Sean McDermott and underrated coach. Nobody wants play the buffalo bills promotions not a good trait to have a Lotta people those an aberration this year it has not been we know what they they've already beaten the rams which puts them in a good position division wise Seattle seahawks with the best win any team has in the league this year the Indianapolis Colts led by one Jacoby perset really led by Frank Reich Quinn Nelson and they're great big people they won in Kansas had less than forty yards rushing so I mean you've got to try to give your team some balance can if you can't do it by being able to handball let the short passing game being extension move higher if they win this week the first real test they should definitely be in the top four Jenna top five and scoring offense top-five scoring defense forty niners are back imagine smooth around the faced maybe not as slim it would be favored over either of the two remaining football teams because number two is the New Orleans saints their ability to withstand injury to their quarterback and their ability to show the full complement of talent the Roster coaching staff coordinators and the other fifty two guys has been exceptional they have not had an easy schedule yet the force fee Travis Kelsey didn't have the type outstanding game you would expect him last week couple drops a little skirmish on the enemy on the side they kissed and made up and everything you got to team five and six Seattle we they've got a guy right now who's the league MVP and Russell Wilson Clowney is already paying dividends Tyler Lockett last year the drop drop a few spots now I think the chiefs will get right this week at home against Houston giving the questions on defense and until we see mahomes play a full healthy that would get them at number three New England should be number one in Kansas City should be number two well that means the team I have number one you

Bears/Bucs recap, OBJ's mentality, Drawing A Blank, NBA Finals Game 5 preview

"Good morning everyone. Welcome to first things first. I'm general awful long. Time Right Brandon. Marsh Line Kevin, what did you not know? Could time. That's going around. Here I lost. and. I. Thought. It was over certain. It's seven, thirty one not seven thirty now. Go down can't blame me. Now I see I see. I see what's happening. Now I see here blame Kevin Why is this? Photos Nick Right it's the center for? All. Right sort. Gall. Was a little late? For the start of the show this morning. But to last night's game, little Thursday night football bucks bears under a minute left to go bucks need a field goal to win four, thousand, six, Brady Mrs his receiver that's basically it but wait it's when it's down right guys everyone. Got It. Wrong. But me right guys Ford what Is it possible. Tom Brady lost track down last night because it certainly years that. that. is how this one ended. Brady none too happy about it bears hang on for the twenty nineteen when. So what happened? Here's Tom Brady on that final play. The I knew we needed a chunk I was thinking about more yardage and then. You know. Is Got Execution had great opportunity there. So it's not the next cute and we need to. Have our team ready to play. So it's obvious. Bruce at the end of the game there that last it looked like Tom might have been confused reward down it was not it was fourth down. I'm not sure what's worse. Mistake or not knowing and making that mistake either way there's a lot of cleaning up to be done in. Tampa this week but brandon let me start with you whatever you WANNA call her mental or whatever it was is that will cost the Tom Brady's a little air, their cost the bucks that win last night. Nick you sure you want me to start do. Right ahead on the. You Feelings dinner dinner I wanted to come in here and defend. Tom. I don't think I can I. Don't think it was the defining moment of the game you know there's so many. Plays throughout game offense defense, special teams I thought Khalil Mack. Definitely stepped up last night to six two tackles for loss. Two quarterback hits. But Tom Brady. Come when you think about situational football the last twenty years there's been nobody better outside of him and Russell Wilson. So for you to get in a game and you make this mistake. This is a big deal. You had to run back coming out with the option that you could easily hit for three years and he could have ran for another five or six yards. This is a big deal I don't understand how this happens when you have a guy. That's done it at a high level for a very long time, and this is why he's your a lot of people think about the physical weapons Thomas. Mental, we talked about this yesterday nick. So I was ready to come here today. Watching a game last night I was like. Oh, great because Nick Nick doesn't think they're going to have a great run these next three games. This would be the first one. They'll win this game and then Knicks to shave his hair. Do something cool in and leave Tom Brady alone but Tom. Blew it Tom Louis. Tom Blew it and listen. This is bigger than anything about the bucks record the bears get into foreign one any of that because my entire life. There's been a goto phrase when it comes to an athlete. Who probably hung on a little too long changed teams and your final memory of him is not what you wish it was and that phrase has always been Willie mays stumbling around in the outfield for the seventy three mets. For the next generation, the phrase is going to be Tom. Brady forgetting what down it was. Oh it's not a wild. There's we're talking. I can't tell. No, I'm finished Nataly. Serious. Seventy seventy-three mets those seventy-three mets by the way that happened in the world series on a very foggy day when everyone was falling down nobody remembers or cares about that it was Willie mays where in Jersey that seemed unfamiliar it also doesn't matter that. Willie. Mays is in my opinion, the greatest baseball player ever part of his sports epitaph is that Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time and this season is not going to go well for the bucks. This season already is not going well for Brady with to pick sixes and five games. Congrats to him. By the way you avoided one last night and forgetting what down it is, which is something you can count on less than four fingers. How many times you can remember a quarterback doing that particularly when there wasn't a spike play involved would sometimes can make you lose track of downs is a mortifying moment for any quarterback in the League wilds much less guy who is out there allegedly because he is the smartest must aware most connected guy on the field at all times. So absolutely, Tom Brady forgetting down this will become this generations. Willie mays stumbling around in the backfield. I I, like the creativity of the take. For a few reasons one because there's sort of a book into Willie Mays, right? Yeah. The over the shoulder catch and you have stumbling around in center field. So it just feels like an arc. and. You could argue that Sherlock Tom Brady is like the ultimate combat king and now lost track it downs what Brandon I'm not entirely blaming this on Tom Brady there's two variables here. One is Tom Brady is in a new uniform the other one is there's no fans there's no sort of like situational awareness and I feel like when he's got Chicago fans were on their feet going crazy any sort of little mental labs Tom Brady like man these fans sure are going crazy. What down is it and I actually am blaming the lack of fans for for being the extra variable screw Tom. Before you before you answer that I have one other question for you does this actually happen more often than we realize does this act like it's like baseball? It's like two outs everybody there'd be constantly being reminded and there's even fewer chances only three outs. Does it actually happen more often Tom Brady was very obvious about it. It happens all the time, but it happens to rookies. It happens to guys that are in their first year it happens to guys that. Only, less two or three years in a NFL. It doesn't happen to Tom. Brady. Doesn't happen to drew brees. It doesn't happen to Russell Wilson doesn't even happen to a young Patrick Mahomes. You know that's why this is a big deal, but it's only a big deal for this moment because. There's only sixteen games in the season, but the season is long. This team is still a contender. This team can still go out there and win you're going against. This is Tom Brady with no. He. Didn't have a healthy Mike Evans Chris. Wasn't there OJ. HOW'RE WASN'T THERE Claiming Howard's really deep it. Got To keep all that in consideration when we're talking about Tom, Brady going into Chicago and losing by one point. Okay and So what do you think? Brandon weapons or not on the very first drive of the game he airmail of an easy touchdown pass. But that trains never late headline. We thought no no, no look no, no, no, no no no, he has his hand was hit. His hand was hit big when he aired may airmail Passo let's let's make sure we're we're actually paying the pitcher to right wait Tom Brady just last week threw for five touchdowns and that was the topic yesterday going into the game. It's a lot of football left wasn't wasn't. Yes. Well, people talk about it potentially a year from now two years from now maybe ten years now. Yeah. But this is the ghost six championships and he can potentially be a contender this year. At the end of the season. All right. Well, listen we've got we've got a lot of show left just talk. Plenty more. We'll take a turn now the Cleveland browns have themselves a tough battle coming up. This weekend can baker no doubt. Carry that momentum to a win over the colts neck's versus I. First.

The Cleveland now, the team that beat the cowboys last week three and one brown hosting the three and one colts on Sunday. Some I say they're evenly matched our friends at Fox bed expecting Gel to have another. Good. They have his over under for Yard said at seventy nine and a half also have. Over under for targets at six and a half Odell, says, he feels stronger and faster than I was last here. So Brandon I, know you keep saying you WANNA see more targets to Odell and more yards from Odell. What do you make of his mentality heading into the browns matchup with the colts Sunday? I love his mentality and that's while not buying what he said two weeks ago when he basically said I'm okay with you know having averaged I'm accepting it and I think that's a problem. As a wide receiver, we get a lot. We get a lot of flack for our emotions and our approach to the game and a lot of times. It's valid and I. Think we struggle communicating. It's OK Odell to be great. It's okay to want to lead the league in receiving yards and touchdowns because you can. The issue is, how do we communicate that with everybody in the building? It's okay to walk into building Lebron. James does like Tom Brady does and demand. That everybody give Max effort that everybody wants to be great that everybody wants to win you get team goals individual goal. So hearing him say this is really good but it's it's a it's conflicting because two weeks ago he literally said like I'm not GonNa have a big year. No, that's not the mentality you want coming from Odero. This is better because when you walk into that building, you hold everybody accountable that's why the team's win. That's what clippers are at home, and that's why the La Lakers are playing. For another championship. So Odell embrace it but the key is how do you communicate that to the offense coordinator? How do you could communicate that to your quarterback? How do you communicate that to your head coach? How do you communicate that to the other wide receiver? So they don't look at you as you're coming off yourself as. They see you as a guy that really wants to help the team win and who also wants to be great. and. So Brandon I listen. I empathize with Odell Beckham. Immensely. And it's because I feel like he had and I know folks don't want to hear this. So I can give you my honest take on it. He is had a run of impossible luck. Twenty and fourteen twenty fifteen, twenty sixteen. He had statistically speaking the best opening three years of a career of any receiver ever. And then it all changed January of two, thousand, seventeen he he all of a sudden. He carries that team offensively to the playoffs and they celebrate by taking a little one day boat trip to Florida with guide Trey Songz, and all of a sudden he's absolutely excoriated for it. Then next year twenty, seventeen, he breaks his lake then next year he. Has the final year of what's left of Eli Manning but everyone blames him and last year he dealt with the Freddie Kitchens experience while playing through an injury. So it's just been bad luck after bad luck after bad luck that has been where it's been a damn near full presidential term until since we've last seen how great he can be so i. I feel funny. especially. Go? Ahead. Brandon. I don't think it's bad luck and. I can't project my career in my approach on other people. But you we tend to lump receivers into one bucks and for me one of the reasons why I was able to produce at a high level for very long time hundred seasons thousand, yours twelve hundred yards year after year after year is because every day I walked in that building I I demanded that I'd be a part of the game plan. I, demanded that they give me opportunity to help the team win it took me four years to to learn how to communicate that the right way. So the first four years I didn't do it the right way. I. Was just like every other malcontent. Shift to the New York jets. Now, my tone change instead of me coming in saying coach I want the Ball WanNa help the team win. Why didn't you put me in this? I wouldn't say quote asked the question coach how can I help the team this week? What do you see that I can do differently? So I learned matured. So I think that is not bad look. It's really him going in and being able to communicate with the Makah with the manning with with his. Mayfield made inch Baker right now that's that's that's what he's supposed to do. I remember being there in New York in standing in between eight and Odell like can you guys please talk like just talk? That's all is like, yes, he wants the ball in Eli you shoot him the ball. He is the best wide receiver in the game right now why aren't we talking right now we got Philadelphia on the other side. Or but and you to our best players aren't talking. So. So Brandon what's the relationship? Can you make me smarter about this between the quarterback the offensive coordinator in the coach so you were talking a lot about like Odell in big or or You Know Dell and we just saw it with like this play with Brady and it's like well, Brady's going for those yards or was that the play call. So when you talk about like how Odell can get involved, what if you could divide up the pie? What percentages the head coach what percentages the offense coordinator what percentage is the quarterback? Yes. From my experience in the League and going back to coach Shannahan what he would do as he would create boxes. So he had the Brandon Marshall box he had to. Eddie Royal Box that Tony Shuffler box and he would say, okay well, Brandon has a thirty plays that I'm designing for him. Eddie Royal has twenty. Five Tony Shuffler has twenty five or maybe it's twenty plays and you also have brandon stokely who was the king on third down and he had ten fifteen plays we knew going in on third down Jay Cutler. Dropped him back and he was looking for Brandon Schefter. We knew on first down if it was worn on one, I was getting the ball we new on second down. If it was a three by one in, they're doubling the frontside backside one, Jay Cutler had had the right to change my route router that he wanted he could give me a one that would be a go. He can give me to be a slain. He gave me a three that would be out. Could he gave me a fist? That would be a hitch so How do you get Odell in a game? It starts with the head coach saying, okay. This is what we're going to design for you to take advantage of what this defense is presenting to us, but we're also going to. Design these plays that we know no matter what they call we can get the ball in your hand so you can do something with it because one of the things that make Odell great is his ability after the catch what can he do when he has the ball in his hands? So how do we control that quick screens and I've been? Saying it for three weeks. I WANNA. See Him almost green this week I wanna see him catch one step slant I. Want to see him catch a one step smokeout. Basically, that's a one step turned to the quarterback. He's going throw it down the line. If you do that, you get him in rhythm and then everything else will built off of that. Loving. Great Stuff I. Love that story about Odell Andy ally such good stuff. All right. GotTa, take a break. Did Tom Brady's mental error cost the bucks a win last night we'll discuss next versus I.

So Brandon on this day back in two thousand sixteen, you record it I'm GonNa put myself. Just you recorded your nine hundred career catch in a game against the steelers. This play puts you in some elite company. You actually join Marvin Harrison and Andre Johnson as the only players with nine hundred catches a hundred, fifty, seven games. But Yup, I gotta has brandon because I know we're all thinking it. was that really a catch because what from our angle way back here in our living rooms? Kind of. Just, look. Go Defend Yourself. That's not even cold. I think Jenna Jane hold my goodness. One Hang. Forty, nine hundred. That's amazing. Style. Friends. I'm sorry. Brandon, they've got you listened with nine, hundred, seventy catches and twelve, thousand, three, hundred and fifty one yards. It's now nine hundred and sixty nine catches and twelve thousand, three, hundred, thirty, eight yards because this is off the board this is out. So. Non Thirty. So now I'm thirty one catches away from my my my goal my goal is it now. Now you're GonNa take one away from me. I'm already living with that every single day. Brandon. Time for little of congratulations nonetheless, all star Tom Brady who appeared to lose track of the downs on the bucks spinal play last night maybe thinking in one more shot when in fact he did not down in distance tom down in distance. So Brandon Tom Brady's apparent mental error last night was blank. It's confusing did he know did he not know he was asked the question after the game he was like well, I should have just went for the first down instead of the yardage is like I don't know Tom I mean I guess you don't either. Arthur Brandon Listen I. Do. Know. He lost track of the downs and his mental. Our last night was Karma wrapped in a delicious layer of Jordan. Freud. It's Karma for him screaming at everybody all day A. Trip once a rookie Brian Jensen, the Center Brandon's as best center in football. You just had a rough night. The bears are good and shorten Freud because Tom. Brady. We all get to rebel in today. If we were to have a meter, the belichick Brady scale bell checks sit at home in a ratty sweatshirt some subway same. Tom Brady never made those mistakes when we was on our team. So I do wonder who the real mad genius wasn't between. US He doesn't even know how many downs you need for first down. So it's Karma rap shot and Freud for your patron Saint Kevin Wilde's. Okay. So everyone likes to play this game who won the divorce telecheck o'brady. Answer nobody is I think after. Brian, hoyer called non-existent time out at the end of the first half. and Bill Bell checks just like this. He's about to text. Brady's not going to do it. Then he watches this game and Brady's doesn't realize it's worth Dallas. You know what? Those guys miss each. Other. And they never should have left. eight, hundred, sixty. To bring us all down onto Cleveland now browns offense has been red hot these last three weeks averaging more than thirty nine points a game finally getting the most out of. Odell. But Brandon, the player you are most excited to watch and week five is blank. Gin. You can ask me this question every week, and it's going to be the same answer Knicks win you. WanNa Watch NBA. Basketball WHO DO YOU WANNA WATCH Who Do you prefer to watch next? please. Lebron the best player, the best player in the League yes. Was Russell Wilson Yeah, there's there's nobody else I wanted to watch every week besides Russell Wilson. He's going to be the MVP this year he's having a phenomenal year that's the guy, and it's going to be the same answer every. Single Week. To. Answer I'm going to go on the absolute other end of the quarterbacks spectrum. Daniel Jones. And here's why. So excited to watch Daniel. Jones. Because Daniel Jones this year has two touchdowns and he has eight combined interceptions fumbles. Daniel, Jones can't get going against this cowboys defense that is letting everybody have career days. Then we might have to start your close the book on Daniel Jones the way Washington close the book on Dwayne Haskins who was taken after Daniel. Drums so I am I'm most excited if Dana Jones can't get it and against this team Wilde's ain't getting cooking against anybody with. Hey Hey browns ravens, the battle of a young quarterback versus Joe Borough. It's your friendly reminder that Lamar Jackson Birthday January seventh nineteen, ninety, seven and Joe. Boroughs December Tenth Nineteen Ninety six. So we were watching this game like all young quarterback Lamar Jackson is younger than Joe Borough just remember it don't let anyone tricky that the job of the Lamar Jackson younger just keep on saying Avon saying they're gonNA try to trick you Lamar Jackson is younger than Joe Borough Jenna. Hey. Just take so the. Apologies we don't have general for a moment. So the raiders. Chiefs this week. So that's why we're showing team that should be on upset settler, but that's ridiculous. No one's going to pick the raiders to win. So Brandon a team that. Should be on upset alert in week five is who? Look man this may not be a big one and may not be as sexy one but I think it's a real one and that is the dolphins over the forty niners i. know the forty niners are banged up. Oh, the dolphins nobody respects the dolphins could this be the fifth coming of fits magic? This is going to happen already. Come I. Love Life is that they're do their due for big win look at this guy looked at the bear man come on. You know he goes on these runs once a year and it's the start now. Go ahead wild before I get my answer. What were you going to say? I. Love I. Love Brandon and I love his loyalty. But Brandon you're on is the football analyst and I'm supposed to be kind of like the soft Intel Guy Joe John you say. Look at the beard. As the reason. was showing them. He's got. His Heart Pitch Patrick we're just lucky. Retired where else there'd be two of these guys every week every week. I, think he can do it. Real. Answer. That's actually I. think going to unfortunately wipe the smile off Brandon's face. I think his beloved Seattle Seahawks should be on upset alert Minnesota is not as bad as everybody thinks they are they scored thirty four and we one to green bay against Green Bay Green Bay happens to be awesome week to for like old Minnesota stakes. They couldn't move the ball against to Indianapolis, Indianapolis has the best defense in football week three they're playing the titans they have a lead with a minute fifty left the field goal beat them. beat the Texans. So I do think that the vikings playing Seattle being able to move the football against that. I think Seattle like you up settler Wilde's I. Know You don't like it but I think. That's a good one. That's a good one. That's a good one. Thank you but I don't like. This will break the a little bit I'm going with the chiefs. You look good against the Texans bad against the chargers you look good against the Ravens you look bad against the Patriots. But Nick claims that the chiefs looked great against the patriots because they won by seventeen points against our JV team but the guys do not look sharp you just don't and you know it. If we actually opened up next heart or an injected truth serum probably wouldn't need to open up his hard just inject the truth serum in any event if you inject. Serum. He sorry it was too much in the early mornings. All right. We know. An upset I think isn't defined. Roles season. Hold, on general way another free role and I'M GONNA. This'll be you're not gonNA believe what I'm going risk here. Because Monday the story is also going to be Lebron winning fourth title. If the raiders beat the chiefs all wear your Jordan jury. Free? Will. Wile. I will wear the. Jersey when. Absolute Wild, you want to know the chance that the raiders have a beating the chiefs. The same chance Tom Brady has of knowing what down it is zero percent. Worried. About longer. Do whatever you want with that Jinnah Gory. Loaded, let us finish up in Philly Carson wentz and the Eagles lead in the NFC east despite having just one win last week against the forty niners. But Brandon the player with the most improve and week five is blank. It has to be your woods. I mean after a show I started watching everybody else on air everybody was crushing his dying I. Just wanted to make sure that as a player you know I was validated in my feelings and this guy cannot come out and say you know as a professional athlete, you're not expected to go full speed every single play. So executive your woods your on the hot seat bud if you're on my team when we're scoring five hundred I mean we're we're averaging five hundred nine yards a game and our defense is playing the way it is I don't know how much longer you would let's look at is the cowboys Three and everybody else beneath them as foreign. Oh, just play a little bit of defense. Good. That's crazy graphic. That's crazy. Steph. I'M GONNA listen. I'm GonNa Change my answer. Based on what wild just said I guess the player with the most approves Patrick Mahomes. TV. Chief Camp Lake consistently no listen people are saying he's not even mentioned in the MVP discussion forget the fact he's number two in the NFL and Duxbury. Forget the fact he's number two in the NFL total qbr number four in the NFL and quarterback rating wild and other people I'm hearing it say the chiefs have been underwhelming the chiefs were on that graphic for the fifth best offense. But Hey, you know what you're GONNA get Josh Allens more of an MVP contender. He's been bad half the time this year he has zero turnovers but wild cells, me should have five. mahomes coming off and rolling an MVP. Here's a lot to. So my interest Patrick should be they should be one. He's the greatest quarterback everyday you should be one. Finish it off four years thing. I'M GONNA go John I'm going to go with the browns defense and here's why. Our show is two hours. Every day doesn't matter. There's not a lot of sports news or is there is a ton of sports news and after the browns cowboys game, there was only so much to talk about we talked about the the. Dallas defense collapsing. We talked about how Awesome Odell was and we talked about Dak Prescott in the browns defense out here looking like. They didn't get us into the show even though the five hundred yards, Dak and poor touch. Defense and I know myles Garrett Smith playing great. The browns defense needs to step up the colts defense is not gonNa let Odell and Baker get loose. Oh, it's gotta be from the defense and coming off of they gave up over five hundred yards and it's like good. No one's talking about US OK guys. So browns defense like it. My answer is Baker Mayfield. My answer is always Baker player to watch team to watch. I'll be watching second of that Game Lakers can finish up their tonight with win over the heat's Canady make a final push. For MVP, we're asking we're answering a little this little that it's all next first things first. Sunday on Fox catch, Carson Wentz, and the Eagles they take on big Van Juju, and the steelers or the regional action. Check your local listings for the gain in your area or you can watch it on the Fox sports APP. ARLIT switchgear stocks and basketball now Lakers a win tonight over the heat and they are your NBA chance. It would also be exactly as both nick and I predicted Lakers in five. So we saw Jimmy Butler go off in game three for forty. A new report says that after that game, a frustrated Anthony Davis demanded to be glued to Jimmy baller paid off for the Lakers in game four so much. So that Butler even said after the Game Davis is in incredible defender. Nick or people undervaluing a defense when it comes to the finals VP discussion. I don't think. So listen eighty should've won defensive player of the year. Said for the last few months, Anthony Davis is the best most versatile doodle defender and all of basketball and he's showed that by being able to switch out onto Jimmy Butler even though Jimmy Butler six inches shorter than and give him problems all night long. But through four games. Finals MVP is not a debate. It's a fun thing to talk about on these shows, but there's a reason why if you WANNA put money on it? To, win money on Lebron you have to risk eight hundred dollars to win one hundred dollars and if you put those same eight, hundred dollars on Anthony Davis you would win forty, eight, hundred dollars because through four games Lebron James has scored more points has more rebounds has more assists the one knock on Lebron has four turnovers a game, but averaging three turnovers a game despite touching the ball small percentage of the time Lebron does as far as handling, bringing it up the court and in the most critical monument of the Lakers season who took over Lebron James Not just in the fourth quarter where he had eleven points five boards. To assist in fourth quarter of game four but eighty, three, eighty, three with six minutes left in game four it's Lebron one, it's Lebron free throws Lebron free throws Lebron assist Lebron assist to give the Lakers to win the game for the Lakers to give them the seven point lead with two minutes left Anthony Davis had a big three and I'll give him credit that three happened up six with thirty nine seconds left the game was over make or miss their up six with thirty nine zero seconds left. So why Wilde's I I? I understand how great has been defensively he's been good on the offensive and not as good as Lebron. and. It's not over because of eighty has forty, five, fifteen and eight tonight Lebron plays poorly ad a win it but right now wild, it is not a debate. So I think Lebron's it and I think part of the reason those odds are so skewed like you said is because this reward is not being voted on by robots it's being voted on by people and I think they every voter went in saying like this is kind of Lebron's finals MVP kind of odd deserves this one I just feel like it was made up in this they want to give it to them. It's like I we WANNA given academy. Award to Martin Scorsese. Was Irishman good like we want to give it to him I just think in their hearts, the voters want to give it to the Bronx but just would stats. Here's something. Here's how think ad could deserve the award. The first thing I think he would help help him have a series defining moment we haven't really had that from the finals yet we haven't had our. igwe dollar block we haven't had our Jordan Shrug if there was a series defining moment that you're gonna see for the rest of your life in a comes from D. I think it would help him. Number to keep scoring efficiently the shooting better than Lebron just more efficiently not a big deal does not worth a lot but keep doing that three lead the Lakers in points, rebounds steals and blocks in. Here's how that stat line would look nick and it's not outrageous to think this could happen and then I think it would really hurt your your. Points reality. This is a normal game. This is not a bad game from Lebron. But ad goes into has fifteen rebounds. At that point, he would be leaning all the major statistical categories besides assist which I don't think anybody would. Expect him to elite in. And then I think you would make. That ad. Played, better. And even if Lebron one, it's May WANNA snake water. Another thing. Because he's not going to. Tell you. It's he's not gonNA lean assist I'm not going to put up there Lebron got more surprise surprise. It's not as easy so. It's not. I don't care well, really this is great and I. Do think you know if he has a defining moment and maybe if they go to game six games seven. He'll have an opportunity to win it. But as of right now, he has no chance and everybody's talking about his defense. I don't give a damn. Defense he's playing he has no chance and here's why nick you said something yesterday off while responding off of wild said. Wow 's refused to put up assists you're like, well, how can we leave assist? These. Graphs when Lebron is the point guard the point like you have to put that in there and then you went in and you said something like well, maybe I need to do a little bit more research there while Lebron's leading in points, rebounds and assists I'm like, all right. Let me pull out my little google calendar and my Google Google Shane and see what's going on here in these categories and I find that it really hasn't been done. You gotta go back to Nineteen eighty-seven seven when the first time ever been done when a guy in the finals led his team in those three categories and that was done for the very first time by magic. And then follow up in two thousand and three by Tim Duncan. And then guess who else did it three other times, Lebron James, and that's why it's a big deal when you do something that's rarely that rarely gets done. It's not a debate man. This guy is the MVP they win this game. Just. Right away. I want to ask wilds of questions, Wilde's frustrated and I understand her And the reason I was making the faces I was making is abusing lebrons going to have a twenty two point seven rebound closeout game of the finals. I got a boat to sell you but in but more importantly, you said something I find very interesting wild use said. Assists aren't Anthony. Davis. Is Job, right? You said that yeah, correct. Yes I did okay I have a Question for you. What is not Lebron's job. Oh. Would say I, would say blocks are not necessarily I would say rebound not necessarily is job. But. But he has more rebounds. And their. Books, he has more rebounds and they're almost even on blocks. So so It's not just the statistical case. It's also if we want to do the definition of valuable and that is where when you're like well, the voters went into it with a preconceived notion, it should be Lebron if they did it's not because they're so desperate to Lebron finals. MVP. Awards. He averaged thirty, six, thirteen and nine one year and they gave it to the guy who was guarding him who averaged sixteen points a game. So it's not like. We always gotta give it to Lebron. Always got to give it to run. It's because if they did have a preconceived notion they win, it's going to be Lebron. It's because as great as Anthony. Davis is this year maybe it changes down the road. Everyone nodes including ad who the most valuable Lakers nobody denies. That's right. That's everybody. Knows nightmare no nick. That's known as debatable. That's debatable. No No. I. Think Lebron is the leader. When you talk about, how do you get the path to the championship without a D- doesn't happen and obviously we know that because as a team and there's other guys that contributed but is was the hottest player in the bubble. been playing lights out. But when we break down the finals, this discussion about the finals. Lebron. But this whole thing about you know who's the most valuable player on this team is debatable because ad is doing something that this league has never seen before and you gotta keep that in the back of our we have these discussions. I think these been tremendous. I, think he has no doubt cemented himself as one of the best players in the league in we'll have an argument to go into next year as one of the two best players in the league. But sometimes, we can't see the forest for the trees. Who has had of the two guys who is the single best game? What Bra with his thirty, three, nine, nine, with zero turnovers in game. Two of the do players who was had the worst game wild wild. Tell me would you and the game was better than Lebron game to all wait no. By you know. The there isn't one and WHO's. Make you know. Game with fifteen and five. Yeah. The only drama, this series about who's going to win MVP and I absolutely love it. What is the Lebron James Known for? He's known for being the ultimate teammate. We crossed him the first seven years of his career from deferring in the clutch moments going to the basket when he said, take it up and kicking it out to D- Way Ray out. Like we crush them for being a team player. This is going to be the first time. We see Selfish Lebron, James 'cause you gotta think when a game a lot. When we're in this game tonight, he's going to be this jacking up shots, get their MVP. This is the first time we're GONNA see a selfish Lebron James Nick. That's interesting. That's interesting. That's for. Tom Brady did something last night, I. Don't think Lebron has ever done and it tickles Nick Pink little mental lapse. Thursday. Night football next. Thursday night football last night box bears under a minute left to play Tampa needs a field goal to win fourth in six, Brady Mrs the receiver but wait fourth-down down guys win. It's. Nobody that was it. You're done buddy rare mental lapse. It appear the Tom Green lost track of downs at the worst possible time and that's how this one ended only. Heard Bears Hang on for that twenty, two, nineteen wind here is Tom Brady on the final play. We knew we needed a chunk was thinking about more yardage and. You know. It was just as bad execution and we had a great opportunity there. So it's not didn't execute and we need to. have. Our team ready to play. So it's obvious bruce at the end of the game there that last drive it looked like Tom might have been confused went down it was that he knows four thousand. Okay or did. Power quarterback Michael Vick is joining us now dying to know what your take was on that Mike. What did you see last night from Tom Brady and that apparent mental? Honest. The moment? The Man I mean. It was it was unfortunate like Tom Almost convinced me that he had another down. Let last night. I mean I understand. We had one more down. I just think he got got caught up in a moment. You know. The Games movement fast, I don't know how many to many drives you that had with this. Buckner nears offense this this season but it's evident that you know things Kinda got outta whack and Tom certainly lost track of what was going on throughout the game and You know it happened at a critical moment. You know it happened at a time where he needed to be at his best and it just wasn't they unfortunately. I can understand time you know trying to get the trump. used. In in two minute drill you work in. You know chunk down or check down and down to fail you gotTa have a plan and I. Just got caught up in the moment and. Enforcing for the bucks, it didn't work out so Yeah I'm trying to recollect this ever happened to me throughout the course of my career, but I think in two minute drills in. Moments. When you being the most that's when you locked in Mosul what do you? have. The best. Plate forever. This. Guy. Never happened so much this is so much that you have to be able to. Recollect that at the. In two minutes ruling and especially playing quarterback in it. You know we don't see too often and it happened it's like. I'm surprised man I'm. Truly lost the words right now. Guys. You know why he's never happened to Mike Vick. Because it never happens to almost anybody. This is not US picking on Tom. This is a jarring shocking moment that drive went like this I down I play a completion. I down set I down on the next Senate down incompletion second down here. It's a check down caught. Inbound tackled and balance. So they're hurrying third-down bad past to. GRONK. fourth-down pass deep over the middle game over and Brady's wave and forefingers. There was no reason to forgive set a place except for the fact. That Brady's mind was a little elsewhere and you know where it was with Khalil Mack with that bears defensive line with his skittishness in the pocket all night long and I might. Not revel in this so much if it wasn't what came right before it and what came right after because what we were seeing before this drive was the full Tom Brady experience in the bad way, which is screaming and dog cussing your team mates for not doing their job, and then after it, which is after he tried to convince the reference down that he has another down he leaves the field well, the bears still taking knees, and then after the game, he won't own it. Like come on I I'M NOT GONNA kill him for leaving the field early but there are plenty of folks who annihilated Lebron last week because he walked off the court when the clock Said Zero Point, seven left he's running off the field when the bears are still taking knees instead of congratulating Nick, foles Nick foles out there looking around like where's Bob whereas dom na Nah he's in the locker room. He's getting ready to lie to the Marriage Smith's conference that all. Brandon and There's no way around us all happened. Yeah. No, that's an be honest. Nick We. Feel and that kind of changed my tone and a little bit. You know he's the goat you know Mike you just sit we say it every single day. and. There's high expectations when you when you have that title. That's inexcusable. But at the end of the day, you know was this a bad play? Yes. Defining moment was a defining moment in his game. Yes, and it won't be a defining moment. We won't know if there's a defining moment in the season until the end of the season if they missed the playoffs by one doing more if they don't make the playoffs, right so right now is still a lot of football left I. Know We only have sixth we only have sixteen games in the NFL season but the season is long you know the there they'll be okay there's no doubt in my mind they'll be okay I love what I'm seeing on a defensive side have wanted a better defenses in Phil they can run the body. So that last night against a really stout defence line and then Tom Brady was still able to be effective in the passing game with the banged up receiving core. Got Guys on our guys not playing guys out there hobbling around and I thought he looked good. This is the game. This game was turned out to be exactly what I thought. It would be while it's a game that was going to be one in the trenches big on big strength on strength, and it just came down to that moment which was for him. So Tom got some. Hopefully has some answers, but there's really nothing he can say about it. Okay, so Mike I want to ask you a question. So. Tom Brady obviously forgot fourth-down he's lying about it. It's it's you don't need this approval film to figure this out. And then Bruce Arians live. So you know what I'm GonNa do maybe Kuzma Lifelong Tom Brady Fan mistakes happen. It is what it is. Guys drop balls and I know you know talk to professional athletes like it's not just that one play every plays import and there was a holding penalty little team atmosphere. But running off the field as Nick foles seems to be obviously waiting for you and you haven't played them since the Super Bowl and it feels like a camaraderie moment in that Tom Brady's then pouting. That's not a mental mistake that's not getting caught up in the moment that's a decision to be. To, me as a non football player just looks rude but to you if you're nick foles. Level of disrespect how how are you taking that moment if you were Nick Foles? FM, Nick, I'm looking at it like. Come on, come on TV to agree to go. I is just one game I mean I I do and I beat you on this on this night like acknowledged accepted and you still got another you know twelve eleven games to go. So you don't let it go. It's all good but you don't for Tom to run off and not acknowledged nick I think that was assigned a bunch professionalism. Went much better than that. On the state he was frustrated and things didn't go right the entire nights Lehem with that was because of a plethora thing so Tom. Point. The finger at other people we've got a the finger right back itself. acknowledged. The certainly supposedly. The game. For. Sure. Yeah, you can't do that but I saw something I like Nick I didn't see something from the Tampa Bay law room that I really liked. Coach Bruce Arians. You can't teach contracts. Help out. In the first couple of weeks right and he said. You know I I didn't get my team ready to play. Any said Oh, Tom knew that's what you're supposed to do as a leader because what happens is he stands up there and he actually acknowledged it. Now he's adding more fuel to the fire wiles. That's why you do that because the story becomes now there's there's tension in the locker room. To the fires, right. But what could defuse the fire somewhat would have been brady at the press conference be like listen. It's Had, do. So full. In my life because he's on camera, he knows that everyone knows that he's warned president of. The potential. You don't question you runaway for. Everybody knows it and I do think he would do think too wild point and Judas Point Gina I. Think what you said I don't think can be glossed over. Nick foles is played. Tom Brady twice he's beaten him. You told sums and both times. Brady is left the field without congratulating nick. Now, the first one is in the super bowl emotions are so high you I almost confetti. Pass for the sellers. Absolutely the Super Bowl. Or. Then I'm not gonNA retroactively kill him but. He knows he left him hanging in the super. Bowl he knows that is Mike, says I'm he's the goat and the other guys nick foles and now Nichols beat him again and maybe that's the moment where you not only congratulate number like am by the way congrats on that ring man you got me. Yeah. Now I, only have six instead of seven and Brady was pal. Then he was lying and now in his defense. Thought it was the preseason even lie David. Law. Good is. Coming up next. Week. La with a chance to claim entitled Tonight Lebron is ready. Before we go to break, listen to Demar rose an just how locked in Lebron gets during playoffs. And one on teammates. Forgot the play in Brian told him play Some crazy. There was some like. Crazy. So we call it a play. He was like what and Brian told them what our platelets. Just shows you like I lot being do when it comes to that come the winning time man. Back here talking tonight's NBA finals game five first chance for Lebron AD in the Lakers to close out the series in shape title number seventeen. For Miami, they're trying to find the formula to recreate some of the success they had in game three. It's now or never for this state team wild so might even say the heat is on. Here is Jimmy Butler. But I gotTa Win I gotTa know meet put my body through all of this my guys and their bodies throughout this is for something. Being here for ninety however many days it was four something. Being in for the next six to the thirteenth. Game Seven. Maybe. It was four something. Because if it wasn't gonNA, be really pissed off. You guys aren't the same way every time you think of Miami, you say the heat is on and your every time I have that song? It might not be my head much longer I'm sure while it's. Nick. What can the heat do tonight to force game six and forced me to stop singing the heat is on. Nothing zero. Lebron doesn't lose close out games. It's so listen. I'll be very quick here. He's the greatest close out player in NBA History Thirty, eight and ten, the best winning percentage by four. He's won sixteen of the last seventeen close out games the only time in the last what seven years he's had an opportunity close on a series and didn't was an odd game six in round one against the Pacers and twenty eighteen. So we responded with a forty five point game seven to vanquish them. So this series is over. Jimmy Butler the wild Euro Buddy J. B.. He keeps trying to cash checks that I don't think he's got the sufficient funds for. So if I were a member of the Lakers, I would run a little test here. I would amble on over this morning too big face coffey and I'd say Jimmy Okay here's the deal man I need five cups I don't have the requisite hundred dollars, but I'll give you a hundred thousand dollars Monday morning. So you then. See Jimmy takes deal because I don't think he's taken that deal xenos by Monday morning. Back in Miami the Lakers back in going back in L. A.. What you'd go. Hold off Brandon. Record Jimmy Butler has earned the answer this and we don't have. I didn't know what you're GonNa say that because we can pull it up. It says no I owe us right on the whiteboard. No I owe US I don't care how much claim you're going to give me. It's twenty dollars a caught all medium large. What. Brandon to. Nick. No No. No Nick. You gotTa love. You gotTa love this coming from from from Jimmy. You don't the isn't this what you want to have a player. You just want to you typically. We want guys to be confident but in my experience when guys verbalize guarantees and then beat the, we tend to talk about it, and then if they respond after guaranteeing game four, win with guaranteeing two more wins. It's at least noteworthy when it's not going to happen. That's all like I didn't geysers competent internally, I don't often hear guys we like. Consumer, how long it's going to be three to it's going to be three three notes. It's not Jimmy go outlet the NFL I let I let the NFL in in the teams I play for brainwash me not to make a guarantees I wish I could go back in time I would make a guarantee every down gain this game I'm going for one hundred this game. Like what are you lose? The end of the day if you're not win. You know at least you're gonNA give effort right? So it was like I play my best my best. So No. The. Question Gina, the Lakers. Listen, I said I. said it was I didn't say Rose Today we fix that next fixed. Yesterday. Answering. Your question. The heat though they don't have a chance, I wanNA see because I'm going to turn on the game late at nine PM tonight I'm putting down my kids. So at nine, Fifteen, nine, twenty when I turn on the game, the first quarter should be almost. In a he I needed to see like thirty, two fifteen like they gotta come out Hot. That's the only chance they have to extend. This series is those guys making shots right away I can't wait to the third quarter fourth quarter to see Tyler hero or rob. Dawson Jay crowder finally hit a big shot like you guys need to come out right now don't expect Jimmy Butler granted big game if ad is Gordon Oh Mcginn, what would you do is make him a perimeter player now you're taking away from the boards but you've got to rely on those guys hitting bigshots right away. That's the only chance you have. Here's the thing America. Eric's. What to do he's been he's been in the video assistant since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty five or whenever we've seen that black and white photo obviously loudly like from the forty hour one I was wondering if. We're not going to do like unlocked something like, Hey, you should do rebound. Eric's will say, oh, rebound ones. Okay But. You can turn to the dark arts like Harry Potter. Palmer talking to John. Salley, one time as he's talking about Jordan as a how'd you guard? Jordan you stop Jordan he's like you take away. Something that they want. As what Jordan once again only wants to score. Like you know what else I would do because Jordan the look good at his shirt tucked in had success right so enjoy would come down to post untucked, shirt. When Jordan come down and I would push down. Really bothering him I said Whoa that is an interesting concept in later on, I had a conversation with a famous basketball player and they were talking about. just one person he he was talking about was like, what would you do about this about playing this team he said Oh do all sorts of stuff I would I would know what salaries, the guys, who may what their contracts situations were, and if one guy got a big salary, a big contracting guys fighting for a contract, we shut down the other guy in make him feel like, Oh, I've got a score. I need this contract. So it's all this sort of like game beneath the game type stuff and what do we know Lebron wants nick he wants that MVP he wanted you know you want to you know he stated was it where he gets a triple double? He wants it bad. So I was supposed to I. Say you know what? Zero for Lebron Zero trip whatever we gotta do triple cover whatever it's Zeros. The game. With the Lakers chemistry. That's the only chance they've done. I. Like it it. It is a strategy. It is a strategy. Hey with the real Cleveland browns please stand up talking browns and colts. Seems I. All sorts of. Sunday on Fox cash. Carson Winston the Eagles is they take on big band Ju Ju in the steelers or other regional action check listing with the game in your area. Or as always, you can watch it on the Fox sports. Heart back to our top story this morning Thursday night thriller and bears fourth and six Tampa down one driving under a minute left Brady. His receiver but hang on? Me Up. Gets ready for down with wait a minute did Tom Brady lose track of the downs get lost track of the. Bears Hang On for the twenty two, Nineteen Win I don't want to blame Tom Brady but what are we gonNa tell here is Brady on that final play. The I knew we needed a chunk and I was thinking about more yardage and then. You know. It was just as bad execution. Straight up there. So it's not execute when we need to. Have our team ready to play. So it's obvious bruce at the end of the game there that lasts drive. It looked like Tom might have been confused would down it was that he not knows fourth-down. Neck. Nick, what happened there at the end of the game? You saw you watched it what happened. Yeah. Listen I want to give Tom Brady as the goat, the benefit of the doubt. I think it's possible that Tom Brady was signalling to the wrath. How many rings thousand? Lebron James About to. I think it's possible Tom Brady was reminding. Four. That's how long that's how many games I was suspended for deflating footballs I. think that's in play and someone should ask him about that. Comes Razor would tell me. Tom Brady was saying that the ref where's everybody going? We've still got four down. And then after the game lied about it an inbetween forgetting the down and lying about after the game, he's stormed off the field like a bit of a petulant child Nick foles hanging awaiting a handshake the handshake he's actually Nicole's has been waiting for since Brady stormed off the last time they played in the Super Bowl Confetti falling so like all those things happened. and. This is where the Brady fans are going to get if they weren't already incensed even more upset with me. I believe Willie mays the greatest baseball player of all time. Yet. When he is discussed, we don't only talk about the MVP's and the six hundred, sixty home runs and the dozen gold gloves people say Willie mays stumbling stumbling around the outfield for the New York mets and seventy three. And I think for Tom Brady. This is going to replace that as the go-to line when an all time great athlete a little too old changes, teams and folks on TV shows like this in twenty years Brandon. Instead of saying, you don't WanNa look like Willie mays with the mets they're going to say you don't WanNa look like Tom Brady with the box for what down it is because this is something that doesn't happen. We would crush a rookie quarterback for making this mistake and it is shocking to see any quarterback much less the goat quarterback make that mistake Brandon. Nick that's a bit much but you know. I saw it. I'm like look it's not a big deal. It's not a defining moment. When you look at the play, it's a running back coming out of the backfield and you can hit them for three yard for three yard catch and he can pretty much run for another five to six. So you can check them out coming out on his option route right here. So you get the first down and you you could probably go down down the field and kick a field goal, win the game. So it definitely determined the outcome. But it's not going to determine the outcome of the season. Yes Sixteen Games in the NFL season doesn't seem like a lot but it's long. They're so much more football to be played and when you look at this game, it turned out the way I thought it would be. It was GONNA come down to the trenches. It was going to come down to bigs on big deepened salon versus the off until I was gonNA come down to who was going to actually. Be Better Situational football but that's why it's a big deal for this gain not the season but for this game and not for Tom, Brady's career a guy who's done it at the highest level for twenty something years and still competing a extremely high level and can win the Super Bowl this year when you look at the defense and how well they're playing the best. Defense. In the NFL, you look at a team that is set up for success because they have a running game because they have often to line. That's pretty it's looking like the best offensive line and football, and then when you're healthy, you have three receivers that can crush you in any given moment but it was a big deal because like what you see for this game. You don't see this Tom Brady is known for how smart his out he comes from an organization that separates themselves with their intellect in that how physical they are. So I don't understand how he got confused in this moment you had guy sitting there for check down, it can get you the first down. This is this this is definitely hurts I do like errands did the game and he deflected I like that and you you're seeing some growth ear he could have made this situation a little bit bigger if he came out and said, you know what? Yeah, talk new he he didn't know and that's a problem he could have said it was those guys fall in the locker room and that minds. So I, do like that because with him Lee in a way the way he did last night after the game could easily get them pass this situation faster than would. Gracious. Okay, a few things, Brandon. Bruce. Arians got close. than. Throw his players under the bus he overcorrected and just straight up lied. You have to say there's a correct this. There's a lot of plays in the football game. It didn't just come down to one play. We all got to do a better job. That's the right way to do it. You don't just lie. Under the bus I do regret I'm GonNa lie yeah he knew it. Why was he putting on? What he's supposed to do. I. have children watching this exact anyways. Me throw a million. A here's the other thing though. He made a mistake. Okay state. Yeah. He's had a bunch of game winning drives. He's had a bunch of fourth quarter comebacks. He made a bad mistake. Maybe it's because he's in a new system maybe because there's no fans in the stands and you didn't know what's going on hey, you made a mistake it is what it is but brandon walking off the field and if we could run the nick foles footage when Porn Nick foles who? Stole a super bowl from New England with his philly special is looking around being like, Hey, we're going to do a handshake thing and Tom Brady leaves that's not a mistake that's not in the heat of the game. The game is over and Nick foles like this kind of messed up where's Tom Brady what he's not looking for anybody else? He's not like where's Gronk he's looking for the take from Tom Brady and Nick I would argue. I don't WanNa bring until Lebron too much. It's make you go crazy but Tom Brady kind of has. An extra burden of being the face of football and being one of the greatest players of all time. We can't do this stuff. You can't. We saw last year when he went over to Lamar like you're doing a great job in Lamar got so happy. You're the best. You can't do this type of stuff. So I give him a pass on the mistake but this is a purposeful action that I think are really. Hold on. Can I say something that to me is patently obvious and brandon you can tell me I'm crazy. Both of these things can be true. Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback ever and I don't think anybody is ever going to approach his level of winning six superbowls bowls nine appearances. I think Fourteen Conference Championship Games. It'll never be outdone include my GPS mahomes. Is True, and this is what also is true. To Tom Brady. When things aren't going well acts in a manner that we constantly crush athletes for he yells it coaches he's dog causes teammates. He Pal twenty loses any rarely loses like that is true and I know it's become almost cliche to do the side by side video of Cam on the sideline Brady on the sideline. Marked up with how the media reacts to it, but it could be it could be brady versus almost any other player Brandon I know you're not the goat and you don't have six rings but when you were playing and you yelled at guys on the sideline new got annihilated for it. Can you imagine if in one of the? Games were yelled at the guy on the sideline you then. Spiked the ball thinking you've got a first down, but you didn't and got a fifteen yard penalty for it or screwed up the end of the game. When your team had a chance to win, you would be crushed mercilessly at as a kid. was killing. His We just talked about the. Antics, walking and Walking off the field and all of that stuff is is definitely a double standard and it's something that guys talk talk about around the League but I actually like this, this is needed you gotta think the a billion dollar business multimillion dollar athletes guys could be any moment. This happens like we're talking about asking guys to run full speed into each other seven times a game. You don't think emotions run high in between the lines. It's what you do after this and it's also hard to you. Say it. So this to me is healthy we had this but the bad teams don't know how to get past it. So if you don't have this team is probably losing games. Okay. So burn. So Brennan GimMe Gimme your take. I'll buy that one hundred percent by that in a quarterback has a different role than anyone else in the team and I think that you probably get more. Leeway if you have six super bowl rings. Sure. Yeah. Of course do you have an excuse for walk in? It's not it's not. It's not just that it's it's exactly what Nick said. You see it with even Philip rivers and his antics, and then you see Odell do it. You Know Nick, you mentioned me definitely has a double standard there when certain guys doing and compare it to others'. Walking off the field is inexcusable like you're the go you know what I mean like you set the example and I know you can you're kidding kidding Santa's earlier wild. But yeah, kids are watching I remember a plan of Joe for the Denver Broncos two thousand and eight plan against Tampa Tampa came to Denver and I was getting into it with to Endear Brooks came and he sat brandon. Why are you cursing? He said don't you know you're miked up where I could be miked up in the kids could be hearing it so for this. This is a bad example for not only the kids watch them but the other young guys in our. NFL, this is not the standard. So I listen I happen to believe any the whole. Thing I hate that line of reasoning it's teaching moments and everybody's kids with their own problems. I'm not going to go down that road but I'll tell you who is who I am concerned about and I think Rayon Rondo had a very interesting quote the other day while you mentioned Lebron. romper moment that Rondo made it clear to Lebron last year because Lebron doesn't scream teammates almost ever but he can be huffing and passive aggressive and history onic and he said listen man when Angra messes up and you roll your eyes, you gotta realize your his Jordan and so it crushes him so you got to do better. It and win Brady is dog custody. Jensen. Who's got a tough enough job already he's got he's literally protecting the greatest player of all time. You have these monsters. Yeah. The bears defensive line does Brady. Or is this just yelling? Is that going to make him talk? Just yelling. I got a good deal. It's a good point ain't great. It's a good point maybe maybe maybe a Brady seat let's Mike Fifty four Johnson changed the might call and that's probably what they want. They could be arguing over we don't you know. We can do Brandon. We got a ton more time. We got another fifteen minutes of the show to talk about this. So we're. Just. Calculating. Tom Brady.

Would Colin Kaepernick fit in on the Chargers' offense?

"Good morning everyone welcome to first things. First I'm general alongside Nick Right. And! Brian Westbrook has with us on a Thursday morning. Thursday Scott me all kinds of messed up. Brian Love having you on the show. We got a big show. Today, we'll talk some football. Could Prescott hold dowse till it gets a new deal? And where would that leave the Dallas Cowboys Hey? Why is James Harden? Being talked about along the lines of Jordan and wilt will discuss that in can Jason Tatum. Lead the Boston Celtics to the finals this season. I doubt Nick thinks that's going to happen, but we shall find out soon enough, but this morning we are going to start in the NFL with the continued momentum to get Colin Kaepernick back into the League earlier this week. Mission Roger Goodell encourage teams to sign cap in yesterday, chargers head coach. Anthony Lynn step forward to echo his encouragement, said cap quote definitely fix the chargers. Offense and teams would be crazy to not have them on their workout list. So Nick with all that being said, does this give you more optimism that maybe cap get signed to a team this season. It absolutely does, and I'm surprised I'm sitting here. Saying this listen I have been advocating for my friend Colin capper Nick for the better part of four years, but I've also been very honest with the audience that I think it was right around zero percent that he gets another chance, but those comments from Anthony Lynn and then later in the day, the comments from the president where he did not take the opportunity to torch cap, he did not take the opportunity to torch the NFL for even the idea of signing cap. Even if the president's facts in history were a little wrong about caps career as he is wont to do he. He, he seemed open to it and I think enormous part of the reason. Colin Kaepernick was not signed in two thousand, seventeen, twenty eighteen was because team owners were afraid of a mean tweets from the president, and I think they are less afraid of the mean tweets now because I think we've all become somewhat dulled to the tweets, but also he doesn't seem angry about it. He was four three and a half years ago. He was calling the NFL players Sob's now. He's like well, because good enough to play should be able to play so I. I am a little more optimistic and I will put a finer point on it. I think my hometown team. The candidate chief should sign him. Ours the list of reasons why make sense in brief one is, there would never be a quarterback controversy. They got the best quarterback in football there. They need a competent backup quarterback last year. The chiefs do not win the Super Bowl. If they don't have a competent backup Matt Moore came in for Patrick Mahomes in the broncos game they want it started the Vikings Game A. A playoff team they wanted, and that helped them get the by which led to the Super Bowl Matt Moore has since retired, and if we can show the graphic, here's the chiefs current backup quarterback. What he's done in the last five years I mean. That's his last five years compared to caps last five years, so you can say cats rusty chat. Any seems pretty rusty to. To me as well and wilds the last reason that I would say it's a perfect fit for Kansas. City is think about who the head coaches think about the last former star quarterback who had a long time away from football Michael Vick now. Our you know our friend Michael had to be away for football for unfortunately for more nefarious reasons than CAP, but the delay was. was about the same and Andy Reid Bryan's former coach takes him under his wing an after a year of being a backup in the system. He had a spectacular season three years removed from his last year in Atlanta so wild. It's not only that I think the doors for the first time in forever slightly ajar cap being signed I think the chiefs should do it. Just a quick question back to you nick when you say slightly Ajar I've been optimistic this whole time I think the. Tail. Winds are are with Kapernick now I. Don't feel like. There's any real headwinds. I think that it's changed I think the momentum is with Cap I think the national conversation has changed I think there's been a national reckoning and a realization that he was right, but when you say, the door is slightly open or jar. Are you actually. Would you consider yourself optimistic at this point or would you still can classify yourself as pessimistic? Listen, you're right wild. You've been optimistic about this. I would say over the last few weeks. I was putting it at around zero percent. The fact that now I think it's ten to fifteen. Percent makes me optimistic now that also means I think it's eighty. Five to ninety percent doesn't happen, but I like the Brian, given, what the president said. Anthony Lynn said and where the conversation is going. Are you even potentially more optimistic than I am? Brian that cap could end up on a team this year. I definitely am a little bit more optimistic nick, and because of the commerce of the President Anthony Land and Roger Goodell I think at this point have the ability to judge capper nick on his ability, his talents on the field, and not just dealing situation, and when you think back to before a cap got blackballed on the NFL. They were judging him not what he can do the field, but what he was doing as far. Far as protests, his kneeling and now teams can say you know what let's just look at this talent. Let's see if he can fit in our office. Let's see if he can find a way in his good enough to play for us and I think that's a great thing for Colin Kaepernick. This is what I know the last time we saw Colin Kaepernick play in two thousand and sixteen. He has sixteen interceptions and four T. Four interceptions and sixteen touchdowns, and that's a great thing. That's probably a lot better numbers than many of the backup quarterbacks in the NFL right now and I think that's a good thing. Think about the locker room. Go think about the locker room that a team owner. A team coach could bring calm kapernick into the feeling of togetherness that Colin Kaepernick bring into a locker room to me as a player. Our be rooting for Colin Kaepernick especially if I have a backup quarterback that I, don't have strong feelings about to me. This is a great move for any tame the only thing I would say if I was common Cabernet is this I'm tired of hearing. That, I'm a good fit I'm tired of hearing that I could play at this point. I want to hear my phone ringing. Saint come in and work out. Come in and try out so that you can show me what you can do. I don't WanNa hear anymore I wanna hear the ringing saying come in and work out. But the Finn is an interesting topic. Because a couple years ago, a lot of the coaches are saying well. You isn't really fit into our style. The chargers came out yesterday. Anthony Lynn and said he would fit into an offense like our so so let's just talk about that for a second. What do you think about chargers? Specifically Nick? Does he fit that style including outfit in any offense in the League? So I think it's a really interesting question. Jennifer because you're right. People tried to act like there were football reasons that cap was out out of the League and I'll go through the list quickly and why they don't apply right now. One of them was the pseudo football reason of and well we'll start with this it. One of them was. Our starter doesn't play his style. Style well now. You've got a third of the League whose starters play his style. That's ten teams who as we've moved more towards? Not College based but calm. College is centric offenses. A third of the League has threat quarterbacks without necessarily all of them, the chiefs for example I'm Jan any as the backup without a dual threat backup, so that's one of the alleged football reasons. Reasons another one of the alleged football reasons was well. Listen caps a starter, so bring him to be a backup could be tough. Three years out of football, and nobody is arguing is a starter right now. Another one of the alleged football reasons was a polarizing locker room presence, and or he's going to bring up added Media, distraction or attention when we're in a situation where. Where cuyler Murray is saying he's kneeling bakers saying he's kneeling. Jj Watt has opened up the door to kneeling. Every team is going to be having the kneeling conversation so Colin, could almost I think be a calming force within that Locker Room so wild for those reasons and maybe most notably the reasons. There's a lot of teams that could use him as a backup quarterback. I Agree Jeremy Fowler said he talked to some NFL executive titans on the list to Brian. I've got a question to you about fit in. It's about Tom Brady so Tom Brady left, and inside out offense very conservative. Get rid of the ball, and he went to Tampa Bay, an that offense doesn't fit him on paper. So when people are looking at Cap, are they saying like how important is the actual fit when you saw Brady. The mindset around Brady was just like he's a great player. Let's get him in and we'll make it work. Yeah, you know so when people are talking about this fit. Of course you want a guy, I mean if you have a offense. The quarterbacks pocket quarterback. He's GONNA stand in a pocket delivered a ball. five-step dropped seven steps to throw the ball out then I think a lot of people are saying Cabernet can't fit that. I just don't believe that. I still think he can do a five step job. I still think he could do a seven step drop and be very effective. The one thing that Colin Kaepernick can bring you. A lot of those other quarterbacks that are going to stand tall pocket and delivered. A football is his ability to run the ball now just think about if you even have this statue quarterback that's going to stand in the pocket and throw the football and he gets hurt the quarterback that out of want come in. That's coming off the best. Maybe a little bit cold hasn't gone to pass in the very long. Long time is a guy that can run the football. Because now he can use his legs to go winners ball game. Because at that point, it's not about kneeling does not about the protests it's about winning football games and a guy that run the football and use his legs be a dual threat quarterback light Colin Kaepernick certainly got one on the field in a time where I'm trying to win a football guess.

Tickled Pink. Recently? Put the Tie Bosh on any idea of a Dak Prescott holdout saying well, we'll be a part of the Dallas. Cowboys for a long long time, so nick with the deal now looming for what feels like forever, the negotiations between deck and the cowboys. This off season have been blank. Those scream part to. Say screamer to Neve. Campbell project does scream the famous painting, then one hundred and twenty million dollars at auction now. That's an amazing painting, but let's be honest. It's not the last supper. It's not a starry night. It's not even Whistler's mother. So why did it go for one hundred and twenty million dollars because it was available and it was at auction, so it's. Maybe, it's like the ninth graders painting ever, but it's going to get more money than any painting has ever gotten ever often. That's Dak Prescott situations like the ninth best quarterback, but he's the one available he's. The one teams are bidding. Wait a minute. There's only one team bidding for deck, so Dallas just been bidding against themselves the whole time either way same result a pretty good product that you're going to pay way above market price for the screen partout for art history majors Brian Westbrook. There's no way that that fame is worth a hundred and twenty million dollars. That's crazy. You're absolutely right when things are bidding on you that you have to make sense to me. This contract negotiation has been deadline driven from the very beginning this thing we'll get right around July fifteenth, and that's the reason because NFL contracts a deadline. Here's the deal. When you look at the Dallas, cowboys, they got rid of their coach. Jason Garrett because they wanted to get a better coach around that Prescott might because he's a quarterback. Whisper to help Dak, Prescott, they go get lamb drafts to help Dak. Prescott obviously signed Amari Cooper to help that. You look at this team built around back there. They will get it done, but this whole thing is deadline driven to get done right before, July. I went with definitive because Jay Glazer said it's happening, so it's going to happen. But just America for for keeping track Nick said the screen was the ninth greatest painting ever, which means he has a list of greatest paintings, and my guess is it story Nice at number two and number one? It's that alleyoop from Dwayne Wade Lebron as famous painting was a photograph painting number one nick rights famous. Venus. Birth of Venus a classic. Way overrated. Mona Lisa. Way overrated moving. To News for the dolphins. Rookie quarterback to tongue of got the all clear from team doctors to was reportedly examined to see how his surgically repaired hip is healy and was given the all systems go. They should just look at camera while they're looking at players, nick, the ceiling for a healthy to of this season is blank. Top, five. Conference is look at the scene. You've got the clear gold silver bronze mahomes Lamar Waldron who else is in the top five. Is he going to be big band coming off the elbow? Baker bounced back ear. We know it's not gonna be any of the other AFC's guys. I'm not bullish on Philip. Rivers with a cult, so who else can compromise that top five in the AFC tools to to a of I Lewis ceiling is in his rookie season, being one of the best quarterbacks in his conference Brian. I agree with you if he's one of the five best. quarterbacks conference that means he's going to be the rookie of the year, and I think he has ability now to be the rookie of the year. I, looked at college Mary's numbers last year thirty seven hundred yards. Twenty touchdowns five hundred forty four yards rushing. I think that when you look at the talent around Calamari lashing look at the. Talent around two of this year, which a King Grant Devante Parker met rea-. They're very similar. I think he has a talent around him to win so football game. They made the trailing from game. That makes you have the ability to go win a game on a game when he bribes at all, helps your spirit Europe German. Everyone voting for the rookie of the year. So to me, you definitely have the bullets that rookie of year. Yeah. I went with nine in one. If we can throw the dolphin schedule up, I'll show you. Why said nine one I don't think he should start week. One in Foxborough Bella check is twelve against working quarterbacks at home. That would be a loss, so just let them sit out that brutal stretching in the beginning. Have them come in week seven when? When you get those back back La teams come and east that works, so I said nine in one I think they could basically win from week seven on out. They have a very tough match up with fourteen and Fifteen Kansas City new. England probably beat Patrick Mahomes, but then lose to sit him so I had nine and one is the actual answer. Guy So i. Love it Cleveland now. One of the many reasons last season didn't go as planned for the browns former head coach. Freddie Kitchens attempt to keep everyone in the line of happy. This season priorities appear to me shuffled win first, and then happiness fall into place. Oh wide receiver coach, said this about his wide receiver duo. We are going to try to put winning I and they meaning that wide receiver duo will embrace. That sounds easy, enough, but nick. Let's imagine if the winning doesn't come so easy. I asked you this. The browns missing the playoffs would be blank. Abakar blow up is specially in the new expanded postseason. There is no reason whatsoever for the browns to not make the playoffs for the first time in over a decade none whatsoever it would necessitate a the only reason they would is. If Baker has another stumbling season, which means the baker blow up could leave to Baker getting blown out and not being on the team much longer now. Now I don't think that's going to happen. I do think they're gonNa make the playoffs I think they're gonNA win double digit with double digit games, but if they don't Brian with all that talent, and with no longer. Freddie Kitchens head coach. It's going to fall on Baker shoulders, so if they if they don't make the playoffs this year. Something's gone terribly awry. It's a baker blow. I agree with you. They don't make the playoffs to me. Is the end of Baker and I know that the Browns in twenty twenty one have the ability to pick up his fifth year option the same way that the bears had an opportunity to pick up Mitchell trubisky fifth year option, and decided not to, and so you're right, nick if they don't make the playoffs. He's talking about the browns here that means. A running football team. That's seven Kevin. Stansky will have their in Cleveland. That means that. Baker Mayfield throwing the ball to the other team like he did last year with twenty one interceptors. You can't win in this league if you grow the ball to the other team especially if you're running team. If you're running, you won't have the ability to catch up two teams in. They're scoring and if Baker Mayfield doesn't give the ball to his team, and then throw interceptions than they absolutely will miss the playoffs, and that will signal the end of the beginning of the and in Cleveland for Baker. I put oddly okay. I. Six and ten last year I can see them going eight eight and room. tecmo okay. Nine and seven. You got one of those weird seasons. Go six and missed the playoffs. I think that's okay. Nick on your laminated sheet of all two hundred and fifty six games. What did you have the browns out? I the Browns, going ten and six making the playoffs. Ten Wins Make Seven seven playoff teams wild ten wins in within expanded. A lot of instances anymore yeah I believe so. Yeah, go ahead market down one hundred percent. Jump in and just say jumping in say everyone thought the browns were alive to win last year. Make the playoffs before anyone who anything about. Ongoing! Thirty five percent wild because you can make that on chiefs if you think reigning Super Bowl Mvp Patrick Mahomes. has his ceiling thing again with Hall of Famer Kurt Warner Same. Works on his foot work he can get. Better than he's been over the first few years to which nick would probably say? How was that even possible? We'll hear more from the actual nicotine a second, but Brian I'll start with Kurt. Warner's comments on Mahomes are blank. I think there's comments are true, but you know here's the deal. They may be true because Patrick Mahomes had said that he wants to improve our on. It's something that he can do at home something he's been doing off season. Could the truth is? The proof is in the pudding where you go out and do the things that Patrick. Mahomes has been able to. To do over the last couple of years including winning the MVP and the Super Bowl I don't want you to change anything. If I'm Andy Reid, I'm saying I just want you to come in the same person. If you can get slightly better, that's cool, but if you come in same person that you were last season, we win a bunch of games that same. That that may be a problem is the same footwork throws? Defense is all that. Make you looking one way, and he throws the ball the other way. That's what I love about catching your home. Despots made them very successful in the NFL. Yeah I I put highlight worthy Brian I know. Warner was talking about having his footwork. Be a little more conventional so that he know could plant door across his body, but I also think. Nick that Mahomes, he gets footwork. He can having more trips, so he can do more stuff like that, so I said highlight worthy yeah. I like that he's still has unveiled the behind the back pass. which I think is coming, but my answer is Ruthie and really little baseball history, so yeah, absolutely so Ruthie so babe. Ruth is final year with the Red Sox first year as a position player, not a Pitcher full-time. He's set the MLB record for home runs in a season with twenty nine, the previous record with sixteen mahomes. Mahomes I fear. It's like well fifty five thousand yards. How can you get better the very next year he? It's fifty four bombs. They will say Oh my God visible talented baseball player. We've ever seen. He's clearly the best player in the league that Ramones is right ear right now. Then next season he hit fifty nine home runs and led the League in everything. That's what this year for. would be if he gets even better positively Ruthie in a little art history. Start Little Baseball, and it's free to end. That's how we like to Jinnah. Even though. Baker Shade in the middle mixed him by Gina because she's contracts really obligated to do it. Contract obligated to do but which. Is Not Babe Ruth and we are going to talk about a little James Change right now as the veered being compared to Michael, Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain what to the what's next on first things first. Birth. Mark might be. Crisper sorry running our fast now I up is our awarding performance sponsored by Capital Venture Card. What's in your wallet? Celtics all star. Jason Tatum is in line for Max contract extension from Boston this all season, so the twenty two year olds concerns over injuries and help when the NBA restarts at the end, July are validated that being said tatum like me is reportedly not planning to sit out the Orlando Restart. So Nick, what's on the line? For tatum, when the NBA dozen fact, we start July thirtieth. Well I think it's only upside for him. I don't think there's any he's risking the Max Extension Danny. Aines is going to offer that. The moment he's eligible for it, and he's earned it, but I mean. We've talked about this a week and a half ago. Guys with the most to gain if the Celtics were to somehow win the title, then you all of a sudden look at Jason Tatum, he leaps over Luca in Zion and other great stars Joel Embiid, even the other great young started to leak and say oh, he's. He's next. In fact he's now. I would argue the Celtics even just make the finals. He leaves over. Some of those guys now, I. Don't think that's going to happen, but Yeah Wild I. Mean if Your Beloved Home Downer General Vicinity Celtics Somehow Win The east much less win the title. Then he gets in that superstar conversation, not just the star conversation that you think he's already in. Well Yeah and and just you. You nailed it. Nick because that's how I do refer to them. As the General Vicinity Celtics of just New England dish West Chester. Area it's like when you're searching for something on Ebay. You put the radius at five hundred miles. Let's see if anything pop up pickups. Momentum for start is what I'm. I'm interested in or remember. It's been a long time, but. Jason Tatum was on that like crazy crazy hair. He was twenty nine half points, eight rebounds shooting, great fifth in the League for Judy I. I'm really interested to see if this restart. Get the old tatum, where we get this new and improved tatum broussard's and and just in general, Renuka the new and improved tatum. I can't wait to see the nick tears. Everyone has favorite nick tear, and how high tatum can rise. I'm not sure if he's a star yet in Knicks is. Is that I Nick Asa. Wild, you consider him already, Estar does that mean you don't Nigga? That's what. Yeah he's believe I. Mean Look Listen He's. Real quick hold on. Real quick. Let's just show it. Maybe one day, we showing the tears. Every no, you're gonNA. Take Zion aside from Zaire on who we can argue about who on the two tiers above him or better than the answers, nobody. You can't have more than fifteen stars in the league. That's in the official bylaws, so he's not a star yet. Sorry I didn't make the rules. I just bide by research. Though you can reclaim your time your politics you didn't make. The rules. They have Nathan. And this thing in the middle of the season called the All Star game and I think he played in that he's a star. There's at least twenty four stars. He's one of them, and he's in route as was pointed out who being a superstar I do agree with you. Nick in that. He's essentially playing with house. Money this this season, because even though they're recognized as contender. No one really thinks they're going to get to the finals or certainly win it, but hey, with this restart Ajay. Ajay tatum is a very much professional store. The other players on that team I bet they come back in better shape better prepared than most teams, and so they have a shot and tatum's proven that he can handle the big stage when I got to the playoffs two years ago play well even against Lebron so I expect big things from J., tatum, and if the Celtics Somehow do get to the finals, nick, you're right. He emerges as right there on the cusp of being a superstar. Move Onto Houston no surprise. The rockets will be leaning heavily on the bearded one. James Harden ONE SEASON RECURS DOWN IN ORLANDO. That's what happens when you're that good so good. In fact, harden getting semi compliments for Hall of Famer Accumulated One said this. It's very difficult to carry a team from that position and hardness proven that comfortably reaching new heights look at US statistics. He's a player to the level of Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain Nick Wilt and Jordan is king. Right on this one. From an offensive perspective absolute statistically absolutely. Let's just put them up. Let's just show hardens numbers since he's been with the rockets so after year three, because it's not fair to hold, okay, see against them against Wilton. Jordan from you basically year four of their career until the end. I mean will Scott Them. Both crossed and rebounds obviously harden. Go head to head with both of them in anything else, so he needs a ring. Oh, by the way I love the graphic looks like hardens kind of pushing down on Jordan's head. I. I. Think he is still for some reason underrated because we are just count the Rings Rings, the Rings, his arguably arguably the greatest player ever without a ring. If he gets a ring, he volts into the greatest players of all time discussion, full stop and statistically speaking offensively wild deal with people you can put up against him are really wilt and Jordan from what they do in a volume perspective. I mean I know but like. Are we just talking offense like Jordan is nine tying all defensive player and asked US desiccated pull the Wilt Chamberlain. He was like no, they didn't keep track of defense until the seventies. All right, then I guess if you WanNa say that a guy and a bunch of threes on a bunch of isolation's is comparable to two wilt and Michael Jordan I. Guess You gotTa Point for sorry, but I mean. What are we doing? Thank you wild. I nick couch that we'll try to be very subtle about it. All -fensive Lee speaking you play both sides of the court so that that is number one. I love the way that you just blew off championship rings I. Mean We're all in? Over. Stopping. That's the difference Mike who. Share channel resort. Off. Then, we'll. Talk about it, I mean. The other thing, Nick. Remembered about her and I love harden and I voted for him MVP in two thousand fifteen with Steph when his first when Kevin McHale was the coach so I'm the and guy, but you endure more and people of your ill are just taking this way too far. Don't think that hardens. Numbers are somewhat boosted by Dan, Tony this is what might dance only does he did it for Steve Nash He did it for Jeremy? Lin Chris. Do on and raised Felton as well. On you. To far. You should not. Share. This guy eight. Joy. Swear. Under any coach, stay play for. His. Every coat. Heart and only historic numbers under dance out. Off let's move on toxins sixers now. Friend of the show Chris Mannix recently wrote a column, suggesting a resume season will likely benefit stingy defensive teams that don't rely on the three pointer like say Philly. Why well everyone's long games? We'll be rusty from time away, and since Billy's long game is already well, let's just say it's not as much of a focus because of certain players who can't quite shoot from deep. Philly's got a chance of going to the finals. Nick eight to B to c mannix making the connection. What do you make of his prediction with the sixers? Mannix I feel like kind of unveiled this take or at least did the dry run of it with me on the radio three weeks ago. This whole idea that shooting is going to be what is most hampered by the layoff, and I disagreed with him then and I disagree with them now. I Love Chris. I agree, I think the exact opposite of everything he said is true I. Think I think the teams? I think shooting is something you can always do and the easiest thing to practice during porn team, I think teams with more bettering establish leadership are more likely to be able to resume the season where they left off and I. Think guys who have had issues at least embiid case with conditioning. That doesn't work for them so I actually think billy is a team least like pardon me least likely to be able to take advantage of the restart then other teams so I get mannix argument I just think it's a hundred percent incorrect wild. Like the argument, a hundred percent incorrect I actually like this resort. The idea that the sixers aren't great three-point shooting team that makes them great. It's more. It's very similar door. Last conversation like harden is the best player ever to get a ring and take what I just got. My mind twisted around, but if you like the sixers, you don't take a ton of threes loved Pacers, who take the second least in the league, so if you're pro sixers also pro, Pacers. Wowed, you just lost all of the good stuff you earned in the last segment. MIC is right like. Okay let me get this straight basketball about to go back to two thousand and three. This season because of the off, they're going to go back to play in the way. They played in two thousand three. No. Three pointer will still remain prominent and my concerns would philly they've always got a punchers chance because of their talent, but my concerns are MVP and Ben. Simmons still have not figured out how to maximize their games together and I don't think four months away. Is GonNa help them in that regard, and secondly there immaturity Joel. EMBIID is nick, said he's he could be out of shape. Who knows what his diet has been like and their road record that shows in the immaturity. Know Wild. You think that somehow you got this this concoction that they're at home in Florida, but I think. Though is still on the road. They're terrible on the road, so no. I'm not expecting them to benefit from this. They're not not on the road. Moving onto the wizards now they're all star point guard. John Wall is lobbying for Washington to go after boogie cousins, saying quote I've been on that for like five years. I want to sign him right now, Nick, what do you make a wall lobbying for cousins? I actually think this is a great tape, so here's why. Assuming the wizards don't trade Bradley. Beal, they're stuck. You've got wall on a massive contract bill on a massive contract and not the ability to add a third impact player in a conference where you got to have that if you don't have like a true, super duper star, neither wall, nor dealer that you gotTa to have at least three super high level, players, and so bogey and the off chance that he can. Can recapture what we saw from him in New Orleans in Sacramento pre injuries that might be their only way from here to there, and you would be able to get him. Incredibly chiefly obviously is a great relationship with John So I. I I'm not betting on that, but they don't know someone. Give me a more viable path where they could find the third star I. Don't see one because a salary cap. Restrictions so I get this from John. Wall actually think this offseason not for the restart for the off season. It would make a ton of sense. You know what every once in awhile in this show you get a glimpse into nick mindset. To tell truth. John Wall. He May. Look what you have to lose a knicks right I. mean there's no viable path for Washington to become a decent team right now. Other than maybe add in Boogie, cousins and He's been a he's teammates. John Wall in college. They're good friends. I think that'll help boogie not have the attitude problems. He's had in the past also. He's been a teammate now with Lebron James Steph curry e seen how the top notch players do I think that has helped lougee mature. You don't have the attitudinal problems that has been known for the past. Then I think he perhaps could go to Washington and help them at least become a solid playoff team with the big three of wall, veal and demarcus cousins, so yeah I mean what else you got to lose. I agree there are thirty five in Kentucky and we've got great highlights of them running the floor together i. think just be a great fit for Washington and give the wizards a real identity. They. Could use. Back to your calls and joining Atamans unique training techniques all karate kid next. On, first things first. This week in Nascar returns to tell the first on Saturday, you got the expanding series racing. It's a five thirty eastern here on F S One and Sunday on Fox catchy geico five, hundred, three eastern both races also on the Fox sports APP. All right gentlemen time for stories start. Your morning sponsored by Ram. Trucks built to serve and checkout cowboys working white. CD Land Putting in the work. That cowboys helmet onto not to be outdone Washington. Rookie defensive end chase young. WHO's basically already in midseason form to young studs in the division? Look at them Brian. Who Do you think's going to be more impactful and sees worke, seating, lamb or chase young this season? I met these videos because it brings me back to two thousand two. I got drafted. I work early with my trainer. Then denia and the even time. Do all my work in the backyard working on my footwork, my route running things like that. I love what I see Lamichhane show, but when I'm talking about one of the Better Brooke that I've seen in a long time I'm looking at. His ability to get to the quarterback this evening. physicality see that in a video i. think it's special. The've pairing with all the guys that you have in Washington. Paint Jonathan Allen. I and night is all those guys on the inside outside. They have Montesquieu Sweat as well as Maya curate. You throw in chase into that into that mix. Now you're talking about as a running back in the quarterback in the NFC east. I'm fearing that deep. That's line. I Love The Washington redskins. Wow Ryan westbrook new. Washington fan everybody. Just take note last rookie to win. Defensive Player of the year was Lawrence. Taylor I could see that in the cards for chase young nick. Wild was as much as I like chase. I was ready to say CD lamb just because I think the cowboys are going to be so much better than Washington. But now that I see that chase is able to work out on a whole field and CD lamb, despite having first round. Money's in some gated backyard with fence. He can't run routes back. That's a way to prepare for the season. So James Young is now might revise dancer twelve and a half sacks for young rookie year I don't know about defensive player of the year. Maybe one day I, don't know about this year I think he'll be the best of the rookies in the NFC Jenna. Nick right back yard shaming. Speaking of workouts checkout jets quarterback sanders. To giants running back, saquon Barkley out of the UCLA can't gotTA shoot. Horizontal gotTA shoot horizontal. See everything now Cudi. Think becomes the bigger New York. Star Sam or Saquon. Germany, you should know as well as anyone. They're not shooting this for television. They're shooting it for the Graham. And on the grand people watch vertical videos die would expect view of anyone to be respect that at least right to the answer, my own say. I am not in know what makes our great star producer Sam Pepper said when I say this I. Just don't see what golf coward another seeing Sam Darnold I think he's fine, and so even though he plays quarterback, and it's going to be a longer career than Saquon I think sake one has much higher star caliber and the ability to be a better player, even if he plays a less far less important position, so my money's on Saquon wiles. Yeah I think so I I don't know how I feel about these cross team workouts, Brian you know I wouldn't mind if I saw Jarrett the javelin throwing a Travis Kelsey. So the chiefs can get used to the speed of the chaplain of fireball, coming out of the pocket, but I. Don't know what I don't quite understand. These cross team workouts, Brian. These cross teamwork also very easiest hard to find a quarterback to throw a football especially if you're running back in the off and if you can get NFL colleague report about Light Sam Darnold to thirty two ball. That's saquon going to to of the question to me the biggest bar saquon Kansas smile he has occurs occurrence, matic attitude and presence to me, and he's also one of the best running backs in the league, and they'll continue to get better this year because you'll be healthy to me. The answer is simple saquon Barkley. You can also squat about three thousand houses at the same time onto some basketball now hoops were suns guard Jalen Look Q. is taking flight casually throwing down league this a vicious windmill dunk from the free throw line that is not even Photoshop Nick Hey wild. This had US thinking. Who you take is the best dunker left in the playoffs. Oh It's John Rant as I unveiled the hottest take of the century so far that John Moran will have the Best Dunk. You've ever seen at some point in his career. I don't know I don't know when it's. But so far he's had the best. Miss Dunks that you've ever seen in your life, so I think John Marin will eventually have the best dunk. You've ever seen in your life. All right while it's not to take the century. That is a great take that, at least in a minus, if not a solid eight take however. Deng earning the playoffs. I'm going to go with the Russ and here's why he dunks so angry particularly in the postseason they're not. They're not as fancy as job or or Loughrey right here, but it's so ferocious in angry with the intensity to encapsulate to. He is as a player worries GonNa hurt himself on the rim because he does it so hard, so my answer as far as the Dunker, I enjoy watching the most especially of the playoffs. Brian is Russell, Westbrook. Guys going the Garza smaller guys but I'm going even smaller. Donovan Mitchell he has an opportunity to. Calm down. You know young guy that can dunk what you just think about it. You're coming back after a few months. He says won't have their their movement around as good down now. Donovan Mitchell gets them lane and just dunked. Someone to me is going to easy answer Donovan Mitchell. Let's get back to the NFL now. Checkout Eagles Guard Brandon. Brooks Doing Jujitsu just two days after suffering a season ending Achilles injury. See His foot in cast. I know I feel like my mom would never let me do this. Brian is this impressive winger. This or is this just maybe not the smartest thing to do? To me. It's impressive and I think if the trainers are allowed. Then Brandon Brooks would do it. You Know I. Remember back when I was playing after the Kelly surgery. You're basically on a scooter for months. Who would just wieland around that? Put any pressure on his deputy work on these types of things but I saw video brandon brooks before his injury, he looked slam looked strong. He looked explosive. He doesn't want to lose that. I'm happy that he's moving around. Just want him to be safely. Get healthy one of the best guards in the league when he's healthy, I just hope that he say yes. So Brian's back on back as an eagles fan now, so that was a that was a rocky road for them us there Bryan, but I'm glad you're back Yeah I like this and I'm rooting for his recovery. As well as we know the Achilles the terrible injury, so I'm rooting for a speedy recovery. All right so a couple of things here and I actually want to throw this back to Brian at the end to get him to respond to the football part of it first of all to the audience I. Think the audience a little confused like why would Jenna say? His mom wouldn't let them do it. He's a grown man with the audience leaves. Leaves, understand is to this day despite being a television celebrity for the better part of twenty years. We can't start having a family of her own. She does not make a single life decision without consulting her father. Check it out, America it's true I don't know how they're going to check it out unless they know your father. It's true I promise it's. True so she just assumes that's what we all do. Then Brandon Brooks! Eight his monir. Ju Jitsu practice, mom in my. Man With. Played for the Eagles now site side of things. Brian. I think this is a massive loss for Philly like he's one of the best players on their team for wince in the running backs, guards get overlooked, but how critical is having an all pro caliber guard just removed from your lineup like this again. Oh is definitely critical. If you ask any quarterback, the most important need is a guard because that pressure in your face is the pressure that it's harder to give away from an you're Stephanie growing. If you have a defensive, tackle in your face, it's almost impossible to do when you look at Brandon Brooks. He's a road grader in the in the run game when you when you pair him with lane, Johnson and the rights out of that offense. Allow for the Eagle. You have one of the best duos. In the NFL, it's a huge loss for the eagles. They'll bring in Matt prior. They potentially may bring back a Jason Peters and move him around just a bit, but this is a huge loss for the eagles. You bring you take out a Provo caliber player God has made clear pro bowls brandon books. It's hard to replace. Our this finish up with the Patriots now we're there super bowl MVP whiteout Johann handling using some unique techniques to enhance his hand eye coordination. You guys remember routh Macho from chri decayed, catching flies with chopsticks. It's nothing compared to Julian calling out playing cards wall, snagging them one handed out of mid air INS- genius. It's genius. It's impossible. It's so talented. Come on, how impressive is this? Well Future Hall of Famer, Julian Element I actually think this would be a nice olive branch. Nick Julian Element working on receiving with the cards. This is also maybe you guys hook up I. Think this will be good for your blackjack and poker playing. Maybe you guys didn't Hook up and you grab them so listen, I think people expect because of me and Juliet settlements longstanding feud for me to make a joke here. I'M NOT GONNA make a joke here. I'M GONNA make three jokes here. Joke number one great practice all the ducks that he's GonNa have to catch from George, settlement, joke number two job improving the eyesight because I hear performance. Enhancing drugs can hear heard joke number three. Smokes in jail and give Julian off. Season could be useful for hope. You enjoyed the show America's three Julian. We'll see. You can do that. Makes decisions brought them.

Browns criticism, Will Seattle sign Antonio Brown?, Nick's NFL Tiers, Clais Campbell joins the show

"Good morning everyone while first things first, I'm John Wolf alongside Nick Right Brandon Marshall Kevin. Wild and just have to say before we start this morning we as a team have been really good about predicting things the last couple of weeks months years whatever you're all over Clayton Kershaw Brandon Hugh said the steelers we're going to be great outta the gate wilds that Blazer looks fantastic on you buddy and I have been on the Cleveland, Browns Long Time, and that is where we started this morning because I think all of our. Might be coming true. Let's talk about the dysfunction sort of as some would say, that is the Cleveland browns. They are a highly talented team. Yeah. Early, also a highly critiqued team, but big personalities lead to big storylines in this team appears to have both browns reeling after a brutal loss to the steelers on Sunday Baker Odell. The rest of the offensive starters all pulled as soon as that game got. OUTTA. Hand yesterday a very stoic Baker Mayfield was asked about all the criticism in. Cleveland take a listen. I don't give a damn what they say. Within this building we know can be better I know it can be better and that's how it's going to be. Outside noise doesn't matter. They get paid to talk. We get paid to do our work. So that sounds good. Brandon. So when it comes to the Browns, there's a lot of stars on this team, and because of that, they get a lot of tension or the browns would you say criticize too much or not? Enough? Say that the browns are criticized too little. You gotta think about this. When's the last time we talked about the Jacksonville, Jaguars like why? Why don't we talk about the Jacksonville Jacksonville Jaguars because they don't do anything they haven't earned it. That's the only reason why the Cleveland browns are even part of a discussion is because of who they have now this year, they have earned a little bit of. Airtime. It off for one I how they did that in a very long time last time they had a winning season was in two, thousand and seven. So I think they're criticized too little This team needs to earn it. There's a lot of organizations out there. It's been suffering for a long time. They're one of them and I don't think you deserve to have. Any. Type. Of Airtime. Nick. Brandon, there's only seven teams in the whole league that have a better record than Cleveland. Seven. There's From the AFC that of a better record than them, unfortunately, two of them are in their division and that to their two losses against I, I am on the totally opposite side of this. I think this year the browns have been criticizing critiqued and broken down far too much. I understood the criticism last year when folks were saying that they be dark or super bowl contender and Baker was. Kind of talking out of both sides of his mouth and they fell flat on their face bakers done everything off the field this year his critics asked him to do. He is not given any soundbites. We asked him last year not to care about the outside noise. He literally just said yesterday I don't care about the outside noise and nobody was picking them to go to the Super Bowl. So foreign to is not like they've underachieved. So I I feel like there's there are some. People that don't like Baker and don't like Odell and so what we'll do is they get their teeth kicked him by the Ravens in week one and we'll pretend like we don't know the Ravens are going to be awesome and we'll break them down about it. Then they win every football game they play for a month and they don't show up on the show then they beat down by another great team and we're finding away to pick Adam like they're not the jags therefore joe the. Off, team, who are they? Who are they? Win Bad team. Yeah. They're they're a good team that's not a super bowl contender. Is what I think that was. No. Me For for for for me is just a lot at this point why? Because it's a roller coaster in nfl you can't. You can't be on a roller coaster look at the Patriots and look at. Cam Newton they get beat by the Denver Broncos and what the Cam Newton come in and say in this next press conference look man sometimes it rains sometimes it pours I'm bringing my umbrella and I'm GONNA come to work with these guys. It's like I don't care about this. I don't care about that. Why don't you just come and say look we're just here to play ball and be done with it. That's what. Saying. He's asked about the willies what do you want him to say? I'm talking about the organization as a whole for Baker Mayfield we're specifically talking about Baker for me. It's about just getting your job done. There's no, there's only. Bags in a failed thrown multiple multiple interceptions it in the last three years. Here's Jayme is Winston and Philip Rivers, and then there's Baker Mayfield. So for me when I'm talking about Baker mind off the field stuff I, don't mind the commercials. The thing for me is get your job done. That's what I want. Odell. That's a whole nother topic and I know we can dive into that little bit later. But this Cleveland browns organization, you're not a winner, you have not one. Ran and let's dive into it right now Odell like Baker. steelers game. He also chimed in on the critics yesterday critics who didn't like that Oh Delta cashews off on the sideline after he was pulled he was also yelling at fans take a listen to what Odell had to say about it. And at this one, I really don't care and keep trying to make make myself look like a good guy into the world. I am lamb I got pulled out of the game coach said, this is the best decision who know we're GONNA. It's eight minutes left infamy. I'd rather take my command. I'd rather take my win the same way I WANNA be out there too the last whistle competing. Kind of over. You know trying to play the right thing because. I. Love Him to death with people who? Have Plenty of rings and considered the gold and they. Do things on the sideline and other people do things on the sideline and they get away with it and classified as passionate because. They're and they may have Something behind the legacy or whatever it is of me or we love the much much. You Know Brandon to your point. Maybe Odell doesn't have to come out and a lewd comments about the Tom Brady the greatest ever played the game. Maybe he could just stop before he got Brady Papa. What was your reaction to what Odell had to say? I mean, he's right when he talks about the go in there being a double standard. That's that's definitely true. But the reality when it comes to Odell is there is some there are some emotional issues there and I wanNA use my personal story to kind of highlight what I'm talking about I see a guy that is conflicted I see guy and I played with Odell. Think he's probably the greatest athlete I've ever been around. He was fun to be around every single day in the locker room, but he's conflicted because he's an emotional guy and for me here my story is this I, knew that the things that made me great also made me weak but it took me five years to understand that I was on the campus of McLean hospital and outpatient program taken. Dialectical behavior therapy mental mineralisation therapy self-assessment called behavioral therapy to learn how to cope manage different emotions. So for Odell I think when he realizes that the emotion that he feels that makes him great that makes him probably one of the most prolific pass catcher that the NFL has ever seen also hold him down the also a hindrance to his chase to greatness. That's what we're going to see the best. Always thought this when we were playing in New York I was like man this guy can eliminate eliminate some of the distractions that he caused him on his own self. How much better can he be I would like to see Odell go to the whole new level. He is progressing Odell when you look at look at the sideline antics he so much better than where he was but. I don't want to hear him say well, I don't care about this I. Don't just come in and just do what you need to do. Odell is someone super passionate about football he knows who he is, but he's trying to figure out how does this fit within a team within this world and I think once he figured that out, he'll go to a whole new level him be fine. Look, I'll take you behind the curtain a little bit when we saw this video of Odell walking around with his socks or shoes off I was like, Hey, should we do this story in Brandon in the meeting a few days ago was like now those cleats are super uncomfortable I take mine. It's a non story so in that's why we didn't do. We didn't make a big deal of it now unfortunately, everyone in the media doesn't have a brandon marshal on their pre. Show calls to be like, don't do this story so I think there's a lack of knowledge from the media because. Like. Hey. If everyone. Had you brandon? Feel like the old dial of hysteria would be tamped down. Wild I think you're being too generous. Folks don't like him so they pick on him. I'd love to talk to someone who played with him. Who knows him like I do that says Oh Dell's a bad guy. But every teammate of his we've ever talked to has gone from great teammate passionate about winning all the way to I. Literally let him Babysit my infant child. So we just ignore that and we're like. You know what? We don't like it and as I predicted on Monday. Aaron Rodgers is to get more of a pass for the pump celebration in a loss where they get dog walks. Then Odell is going to get for taking his cleats off after the game has been decided and he's been taken out of the game because we're just not fair about this stuff baker just gave a quote exactly like we demanded he give all your last year and the question is, why don't we criticize them more? Well, I don't know because they've the eighth best record in the NFL and they're actually slightly exceeding expectations this year that might be why. Let me. Ask you questions like. Let me, ask we gotta do it like. I. Think we got do it. Let's hold off one second brand play a little drawing a blank here. The video already rolled. We can't go backwards on the raise even things up last night behind an impressive pitching performance from Blake Snell struck out nine over just four and two thirds so brandon. Blake SNELL's game to performance. Last night was blank. It was nasty. Have loved the scene go a little longer, but it was nasty I mean we had a we had our guys wish on the show yesterday and he he talked about him I was like, let me let me really see with this guy's going to do and I think he came in he said his team up for success. I don't know if it's because of the new analytics, a data coming around baseball but I think he should have stayed in their little bit longer. Well. Listen I. Think it was beautiful not only because that's get second game in a row I've made money in this series. told you I like the raise last night but it's beautiful just like Blake Snell is I mean can we show a picture of this man i? Mean I think we've got it I. Mean Look at this. Oh Oh, he. Used to know is those beautiful performance by a beautiful picture Kevin Wilde's. I. One hundred percent agree in Brennan to your point. It was a brief outing because he picks on Sunday. So we knew we weren't going to get a ton of them in the raise like to have a lot of pitchers sort of like new baseball I. Don't think we're gonNA see like a complete game shutout anymore. A lot of people. Up. There let's leave it off his. Marinate. On this picture. Discrimination is identical twin. So awesome. We'll switch gears get back to some football main Tonio Brown is as close as ever to make a return to the NFL way to you guys here which team is prime to land him. That's next first things first.

The ancient Roman saw that the Akwa ducts were a reliable and fast way to transport water. So they stopped carrying water jugs on their backs and adopted them nationwide oh eighteen hundred. Victorian saw electronically light up rooms fast and be more reliable than candles blowing out. So they stopped bumping into walls and made it nationwide. Today's no different switching to at and T. Five G. is kind of a no brainer. I mean historically speaking it's smarter than candles, water pots, and hungry dinosaurs at and T. Five G. It's not complicated. five-year requires compatible plan may not be in your area att dot Com Slash Five G., for you for details. Talking. Tonio Brown. The beleaguered receivers eight weeks suspension is close to ending and a report yesterday said that the Seahawks are one of a group of teams that are pushing to sign a ad now that he'll be eligible to return in week nine we urge these rumors before about a potential. ABC to Seattle move we've seen a be working out with Russ. So Brandon in work out with the raiders or with the Patriots, we all know why. So we have to wonder would be a good fit with the seahawks and if so why here? Why Now? Absolutely two names Russell Wilson MP Carol. It's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen Pete Carroll. He built his entire system around the people in that building strengths. When you go to other teams is really stale there's no swaggers no sauce there's no excitement when you walk into a Pete Carroll team meeting, there's music playing people running around the place balls being shot on a basket. It's one of the most amazing things Pete Carroll will come up to you if you're natch yourself and say listen guy I did not bring you here to be somebody else this is perfect for Antonio Brown. Now, there are boundaries he will tell you just don't hurt the team now obviously we've. been talking about this for entire year Antonio Brown or something that you just can't do. So I'm confident that this guy is doing everything it takes to make sure he's putting himself and the team in a better situation where he's back on the field. But when he goes to another team, the first thing they're going to say like Antonio, Brown tell me about twitter tell me about instagram what's your thoughts on Youtube or you WanNa post winter you're going to post how are you going to pose? That's not even going to be a conversation around around Antonio when he walks in Seattle, they're just going to say look if you WANNA post fine. Actually, we want you to post peak carols. Phone on a practice fiance man I love what you tweet it last night. So Antonio Brown can be himself Russell. Wilson. You got to think about the characters that was around him when he was drafted there I think this would be a good fit? I. Think. There's other places out there that he would fit well but his at the at the end of the day is going to be on Antonio Brown how he approaches things when he gets back out there. Yeah Yeah that structure in New England and it's didn't quite workout. So Nick, let me ask you this though if he does lead. Who then who is true? The more explosive offense, the Seattle seahawks where they be in Ross or your Kansas City chiefs. See You. Guys always put me in this position you guys are worn. In these conversations humorist. The alternate homer. We know what the answer is. The answer would be the chiefs like. The chiefs have the better quarterback. Russ is great. The only quarterback football better than Ross is the one that plays in Kansas City. They have the better number, one receiver tyreek Hill and both teams were just adding as a once great. All PRO steeler that we don't yet know exactly what they have left in on belony Antonio Brown. So the answer you can say, Oh, my goodness all you want brandon but in your heart, you know the answer to. The Jason. In the better running backs and they've the better receiving core. So the answer's the chiefs I think it's the most predictable I think it's the most predictable answer nick. I really do I think the Seattle seahawks they're more explosive. You can look at the numbers they have more explosive touchdowns Nick your stat guy you like numbers. That's the true now yeah. Of course, you got all these toys and you have homes but the ways the Seattle seahawks is built is run run run and take a shot. They only have Tyler Lockett in a slot to do two things. That's it. Everything else is down the field. SEATTLE seahawks has the most explosive offense. Break. I think you're right. I think you're right. Well, I think the answer is the seahawks but I'm still on your side and here's why the seahawks are like a sneaker head with like no socks on it's like Oh. That's really great but there's a glaring thing that's kind of disgusting about the fact that the seahawks defense is so terrible necessitates them having an explosive offense there allowing four, hundred, seventy, one yards, a game, they all three, hundred, seventy yards through the air, which means if you're a quarterback you come in and play the seahawks throwing for three hundred, fifty yards, you had a bad game. So the alter so bad defense giant. Three words for you. Know shows socks let's move onto baseball resume sponsored by indeed. Upload Your Resume Today Brandon Lau. Break Gnat who season slump last night not one two opposite field home runs in the rays game to win task sticking with him never dropped him down that lineup. Nick you like this series is gone so far futons dude listen I think the dodgers win tomorrow night and by the way America to over two and giving you a picks I'm GonNa give you parlay this time the dodgers and an under eight Walker bueller holds the raise to to earn over the whole game or over his whole time pitching. The dodgers in afforded to win tomorrow. Night, America. I like that as well. We're ranking NFL teams on the other side next tears. Dispersing? Debut over new segment what's going? On Tuesday I brought out the herd hierarchy is considered an industry leader. What I say normally goes America GM's coaches just acknowledged my number one team is number one this week I had Tampa Bay a much better defense than say Kansas City and now as we predicted the bucks defense would be great early the offense about Thanksgiving would be good and apparently nick right saw this and just I guess the only doubter of the herd hierarchy in its history go ahead what's wrong with it Well it made me so mad that I have decided that starting tomorrow I'm going to release my own tears of the NFL to counter program this nonsuited on first things. First Eight am tomorrow new segment the nick right tears to go against the hierarchy. Is Eighty am tomorrow and we're breaking it out. You broke the news yesterday on the verb we got a new segment we're calling it knicks NFL tears where we check in a each Thursday with you and see where you've got all thirty two teams ranked tag that Colin Coward Aright Nick. And it might be Wednesdays moving forward illusory Wednesdays and Thursdays at eight am but it'll be ever. Watched programming. Okay. Because unlike. Where you anyone can do a one through ten power rankings. We're GONNA give you all thirty two teams. So throw it on the rain and I'm GonNa ask you to direct your eyes to the bottom of the screen, and we're going to go off a reverse I journal. So the bottom tier all by themselves. Only talk about them anymore or the jets. The next here is just the NFC eggs. Just that division is a whole there. The bottom to that next, here's an interesting one looking for a coach or a quarterback. Detroit needs a coach Denver might need both the Vikings quarterback Houston needs it coach the chargers and the Bengals just wrapping quarterback the Falcons coach, the Jaguars need both. Here's where we started to get the interesting teams. These are intriguing teams, but they're not real playoff contenders we're talking to colts we're talking the dolphins, the rams, the rams are foreign to all four of their wins came against that second last here, the NFC, the NFC, do they even count San Francisco's to banged up I've questions about the cardinals and panthers being a year away. So now let's zoom in on the four tears that really matter. This is the. These are the teams we really care about again from the bottom up playoffs but no ring. Each of those five teams there has a fatal flaw in Tampa in Cleveland. It's about the fact that they're quarterbacks melt wind pressure this year look at the numbers in Chicago that we know that Nick foles once upon a time did win the super. Bowl. And they can get to the playoffs, but they're not going to threaten anyone the raiders are a good story they cap out and about nine ten wins and the bills got exposed for what they are. Now these top three tiers, these teams can win the title Green Bay. You're worried about their offensive line after what you saw, but we know how good they are Tennessee we have. Done since Mariota took over in new. Orleans. Little concern about drew brees aging. But I'm going to give them the respect they earn over the last couple of years the Patriot under five hundred. Why are they there because if they make the playoffs Bill Belichick is such a decided advantage and Campbell of be fully immersed in the offense by then and then you. Have the cream of the crop Seattle statistically the best offense and football deepens is terrible cringe Pittsburgh. I think the most complete team in the NFL so far this year Baltimore has only lost three regular season games last two years, and then there's the champs. So Brandon, those teams that really matter if we can stay focused on this I imagine you have no no. because. This is obviously a flawless list, but just go ahead. Stay there. First of all, no, we're not going to stay here. You gave the jets, their own category. That's so disrespectful when you know that I am guy come on man that's disrespectful and then I wanna, go to your flawed dangerous thing we're going to work our way. But dangerous link. To also really take the cardinals and the RAM series. The Rams are doing something. They've never done in a very long time and that's getting it done on the ground I. Think this team can be dangerous if they can get back to running that ball the way they did two weeks ago. But then the biggest discussion wilds, the Tampa Bay bucks really would do is not even if I keep saying I said all week has nothing to do with the bugs. Has Everything to do with you and Tom Brady what has happened to you in Tom Brady did did he not give you an autograph? This something happened wandering not respect the bucks the buck should be the buck should probably be right underneath the chance and have their own category as go now, giving you the chance. I'll give you that right? That's their thrown. They earned it. The other teams have to knock him off, but the bugs can easily be right there man. Go ahead, wild nick. You know you know I'm a Nick Tears Guy I had I used to get their heard hierarchy or hierarchy I subscribe to it. I got sent to me and I would collect them in my father collected them in his I had I've we've got stacks of heard hierarchies and we always have I used to sit on my grandparents. We are heard hierarchy family but not anymore I unsubscribe and I'm a nick tears guy I don't know if you have. Heard Hierarchy. Is Number One. So I, I used to think because they were first run defense and they're tied for second in the League with twenty two sacks and they just made Aaron Rodgers basically into a mean. I felt like they deserved to be higher up I'm GONNA give you the benefit of the doubt because calling them up and you haven't I wouldn't mind if they moved up especially if they play the raiders and they beat the raiders that feels like they'd have to move up, can't be on the same tears raiders. Okay. Well, this is it says week seven entering week seven. So we'll see what happens this week. This will be fluid. This will be movement movement unlike my MBA tears which it's very hard to create movement on there will. Be, week moving on this but brandon, you had an issue with the bucks. Let me just say this they are going to deal with legitimate pass Russia's over the course of the season and in the postseason they have shown no ability to deal with that has if you know the book said if you press your brain yeah. When they played pass rushers falling apart, they haven't what happened. Yeah. They haven't top they. They have a top five often to line. What are you talking about? They have potentially the sinner and football the right tackle. Playing lights out what are you? Yeah because they were holding calls and they were back in a month third and twelve thirty. You. Hold on I disagree with Washington follow. The weight to on the center, it really did feel like Brady gave Troy Aikman, a lot of dirt on the center because I'm watching that bucks, packers game and every ten minutes wins like it, and here's another thing about Ryan Jensen. Brady didn't change the way. He stands in shotgun because he can't separate what right here's another thing he sweats too much. So I think like, Ryan? Jason's in more than Tom. Brady. But I interrupted you what was your question go ahead? No no no. Yes. So here's the deal I. I got one question. What do they have to do to move up just tell me that because there's everything they've done this far. You crushed him you haven't given them credit. So what do they have to do to earn your respect and move up to the next level? Okay. How about this? beat the raiders, get to five and to have Brady, write this down, beat the raiders and Good. And they'll move up and that that's all they've got to do radio move up one. What does look good. What does it mean to you? When you say Brady look good because your standards are out of this world Raiders Brady look good beat the raiders and Brady look good. Okay. So let's just It's been a few weeks since he had a game where he both through for at least one hundred and seventy five yards and didn't forget what down it was. So let's just check both. Two hundred let's say two hundred. Two hundred and twenty, five, yards, two, hundred and twenty five yards. One hundred, twenty, five dollars. Okay. beat the rams or. Okay and you're be. Up I've got him going into the playoffs that's more than I had them before the year I know from. A JV team they made them look like the. Team that the JV Patriots wiles jv Patriots. Week in and week out. I understand but it can't all wild. It can't all be about head to head record or else I wouldn't be the only person in America reminding folks that the bears beat them and have a better record than him. So we can't just do the the transitive property. Is Greater, than B. So be greater than C wild? I have my note take. A nick is zoomed in on the Cleveland Browns you rank them in the tier call playoffs but no rings I would have had a little lower I. think we're starting to figure out why more headlines for Baker in the boys next person's first. Rate. Against the East rivalry that's been brewing lately Daniel Jones giants trying to get their season going they take on Carson Winston. The Eagles by the way what seven straight against the giants giants said that stops tonight seven thirty eastern on Fox, NFL network and streaming on Amazon prime. All right. It is time to make our picks for Sunday screenplay Super Six contest Terry Bradshaw putting up a million dollars this week. All you gotTa do pick the outcome of six NFL Games. One of the matchups seahawks at cardinals, nicomedes winner, and by how many. You know what? I'm doing right there. I'm blaming. And that is what Seattle's been doing for the last month. One yard away. Don't do the Adrian's they need a fourth to beat the cowboys they need multiple. Versions to beat the Vikings. Arizona by one. Arizona? They play. Get burned the Arizona cardinals in the seahawks unbeaten run Brandon Marshall. Goodness you did it look no man. Seattle by six does, is he really putting this money? Is it his money? Is he paying his debt his money? Like if someone it's Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Oh. Yeah. I'm playing this week because I know Seattle is GonNa win by six I'm playing this week. Okay. Look I I. I support individualism in creativity and I know that Zeke is the one with the feed me Tattoo. But I think cuyler also should go and get a feed me tattoo because he's GonNa just keep eating eight against the cowboys defense. Now, that gets to eat against the seahawks event. I agree with nick the exact same prediction wilder Nick Nick is the best predictor in all of America, and now I'm down to riding the coattails, their Arizona by one stop office who's going to stop this. Is that the over? Over to determine, get your picks in before kickoff on Sunday your chance to be a millionaire back to our top story this morning in Cleveland the highly talented but also somewhat dysfunctional. Cleveland Browns to start the season then they get derailed in a bad way this past Sunday by the steelers browns looked all kinds of out of sorts. It was so bad that head coach Kevin Danske pulls Baker Odell, and the offensive starters wants things got out of hand. As you'd imagine, a lot of questions at a lot of criticism here's Baker Mayfield on how he's handling both. Say. It's it's within this building We know we can be better I know it can be better and that's how it's going to be handled. The outside noise doesn't matter they get paid to talk. We get paid to do our work so. That sounds. Coach Eric Mangini. US now coach. Good Morning. Good to have you here on you. This are the Cleveland browns criticized too much or too little. I I'm so excited to be part of this new segment mcteer's forget I, t. a. r. s with me on it. And the. I don't I'm looking I'm looking I'm looking to promote bad I. think it will work. There's a thing in football that we used to have where I don't know if you guys remember Mae West the. Older actress and her saying you know you have to tell people you're lady then you're not. And I think that's what we're seeing with. Baker. If you've got to tell people that you're not bothered by outside noise and you gotta keep telling him that that then you are you weren't bothered by you pass off the question and you'd move onto the next thing and you can see it in. That that Bob them and in terms of are they are they the most criticized team or unfairly criticized I I don't I don't think they're unfairly criticized or most criticized at all when when you look at it last year with the high expectations and failure to meet those expectations, they were under constant criticism it this year they're a really good point and they haven't played well against the good teams and there's GonNa come with some some questions there. But they're they're over achieving at this point as opposed last year where they're underachieving I don't think they're they're criticized nearly as much as a team like the Dallas cowboys the cowboys are easily criticized significantly more than the Brown. Because one team stinks and the other teams foreign to. And and while they didn't play well against Baltimore Pittsburgh the culture pretty decent t people really like that colts team to Cleveland whooped them. So I feel like that that win counts I. What how is Baker supposed to answer that question and not be criticized for the answer is he's criticized their criticized too much. You know I know it because we're talking about this he was asked about the outside noise. What is he supposed to say that passes muster for you guys. If he says, it motivates me that's no good twenty said last year and we watched him for it. If he says I don't hear it. We say you're lying and if he says, I hear essentially admitting I hear it. But I don't care what that's not good enough either he has to do these media appearances. It is literally in his contract. What is he supposed to say there where he won't be criticized the answer is can't say anything and I will further the point this brandon and coach Judy knows how much I love him but a theme of this show when it comes. To the chiefs coach, let me throw back to you goad since I'm mentioning your name, a theme of this year when it comes to the chiefs is what happened in two thousand nineteen might as well happening nine, thousand, nine, hundred, nineteen it ain't got bleep to do with this football season. So the fact that they underachieved last year and Baker fell into the noise last year I would think should be totally irrelevant. It's about what you're doing this year and they have the eighth best record in all of football and Baker is calls no off the field distractions. Now, he hasn't played well I. Think he needs to play better no doubt about anything but. But. But what else coach? Can he do there to not be the subject of scrutiny here? We'll look we all know that it's not always what you say. It's how you say it and you can look at that video and easily that it bothers them and. The tone demeanor everything. That, he gives off in that answer says that it bothers them and if things don't bother you then then that's apparent to and you can answer things a lot of different ways. Now unfortunately, for Baker, he's a history and a very strong history of being extremely bothered by criticism. So for people to look at this and be skeptical of his answer, I don't think that's unfair and even though we say last year doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It's still provides a framework for the discussion moving forward and you're still. Going to compare past performance with future performance it's not like it disappears from all of our memories. I thought Baker showed a ton of maturity when down at the Super Bowl and visited the the show I thought that would there's a lot of growth I think he's shown a lot of growth overall. But at the end of the day, he's not he's not at the point where he doesn't give them. We could pretend because he said that he doesn't but I think we can do what what the truth is. I mean to answer your question Nick. You talk about what is he supposed to say what? He's supposed to do a stand up there and say look I get it guys you know we're going to get back to work. You know we had. We had a few good weeks. This one got away from us. We'll be better next week we're GONNA, work our butts off. That's what you want to hear from your. quarterback that's what you want to hear from the face of your organization. If you don't believe me all you gotTa do is go to Foxborough how can new answer his question this week they just lost it at Denver Broncos, they didn't lose Pittsburgh soon what the he say look I get it everyone things that the sky is falling down but we're going to be fine. We're GONNA work, butts off, and we'll get this. Thing. Back on track I, am confident that's all you gotta say you gotTa have coach said all of that attitude in in the swagger and you don't need that right there because it's going to backfire it's an art. We know this just like you get paid to be a journalist and ask those questions those players get paid to sit there answer it right? That's one of the biggest job that you have outside. Of playing football is to make sure you do a good job eliminating distractions when you're standing in front of the camera. So for me, there's a lot of room for Baker to grow. I don't WanNa hear that from Baker because the reality is he should care what's going on because in modern football, you don't have five six seven years to get it right? You can as James, widths? Then you can ask Blake Bortles. As, Mary Yoda, you don't get the time you are going to be fired after this year. If you don't turn around right now you are behind James Wisden in Philip rivers. You're behind Jameis? Winston and Philip Rivers for the most picks in a game double pick games since you entered the NFL guy that is a ish brandon I got an idea brandon I got an idea. It definitely bothers them coaches right it definitely bothers him last week they're asking with the if he feels affected by the negative and he was like, yeah by you guys at the media, there's wife's on is defending him. So the idea that this doesn't offend in that he's like the quarterback. Bell checks just not true but here's what he needs to do. He needs his own Nicorette. He needs someone to come up and say everything that he can't say I don't think I'm perfectly suited for it but I've seen it work we all need to so I'm going to give give give it my best shot because he could say this Robert I'll say to you know he's got more completions than the reigning MVP Lamar Jackson this Guy Baker Mayfield I've got seven point two air yards per completion. You know that better than Mr Aaron Rodgers doing means and lose into the books and guess what I got. A hundred and seven passer rating. It's better than ever when I'm gotTA clean pocket. So why don't you guys blocked from me and you know who's the got the worst yards after catch average the browns. So I'm throwing the ball why don't you go break tackled and some yards to go baker and yeah I'm porn two guys. When's the last time the browns foreign to before me I don't know I don't remember I'm Baker Mayfield I'm great. I got commercials I'm handsome and got a decent beard on me. So geno that's my. Date feared. The net right for Baker the I don't think I'm perfectly positioned for nobody. Nobody. Nobody's GonNa Take Baker Mayfield over Lamar Jackson or or Aaron Rodgers it's got more completion. He's saying he's no one's GonNa. Yeah I'm I'm not. It doesn't. It makes. It makes. He's not a good quarterback he's not a good quarterback. Plain and simple. He's not a good quarterback that's it and the discussed. Here. Better than Lamar. All right. Don't look now but Antonio Brown who's been awfully quiet on social media Lali could be ready to make his season debut Willa work in wear. Could he end up? That's next first things first coach Dick around. Lose shocked by. Definitely caught. Me Off Guard. And It was a hard thing for for me to hear yesterday just Kinda. Digesting the news. My heart is hurt all day idea was it was heartbreaking for me. I felt bad listening and watching it yesterday and emotional clearly as he put it heartbroken Ryan Fitzpatrick after being benched for down there in Miami Brenda. What was your reaction to hearing Fizi? Say this yesterday. Remember yesterday I said if I know fits I haven't talked to him. But if I know, he said he's the ultimate competitor he loves playing the game. That's why he's still doing it fits has all the money in the world fits has done it. He's been on so many teams moved his entire Brady Bunch family from city to city. He could easily shut it down. He loves the compete. So all this stuff that I was hearing yesterday Oh fix is the Ultimate pro fits is going to cheer on to a fix is going to be great. He will do that after he soaks all this in understands what's happening so sad day for me, Big Ryan Fitzpatrick Fan my my favorite quarterback. I play wit but I. But I love this guy know he'll do well helping out too but it just sucks that he's in this position because if I'm Ryan I'm looking at it like you know what they expanded the play offs. Right at three and three coup we potentially sneak our way playoffs in a could it be magical so sad day said that. coachman genie back with us now we're and take a big and talks Antonio Brown the often troubled wide receivers eight weeks. Suspension is close to ending in a report. Yesterday said that the seahawks are one of a group of teams that are pushing to sign a now that he'll be eligible to return in week nine. Look we've heard these rumors before about a potential ab to Seattle Move Nice catch right there coach see this working out this time didn't work with the raiders didn't work with the Patriots would be be a good fit on the seahawks. He really has a great opportunity. To go in and and revive his career and satellite think. Pete. Has always been outstanding with with dealing with a lot of different personalities and one of the Nice things about going to a successful team and a successful organization where you're not the guy is is it's liberating and I remember in New England when we brought. Corey Dillon and all the things that that people had set about Corey and in talking to court one day going out to practice him saying how how refreshing it was not to have to be out in front not to have to the guy, and it just gave them a chance to to play and to showcase. The talents that he's always had that sometimes got overshadowed by other things and Seattle gives Antonio Brown that opportunity. Now that being said, Antonio's got hold up his end of the bargain as well. They're Seattle's winning. They've got good chemistry. They've got a great thing going you can't go in there and be disruptive. You can't go in there and be selfish you have to go in and and be willing to play a role and to contribute in whatever way they ask you to, and that gives you the best chance next year to go capitalize on on free agency and really. Really start new. I I actually like Antonio Brown and Kansas City I. think that would be a great fit as goodness. Well, so coach, you kind of walked me right to where was going to go, which wasn't the chiefs, but it says on the bottom of the screen woody Antonio Brown be a good fit with the seahawks and much like our Julio Jones discussion yesterday, Brandon removed seahawks and put in almost any team in the league. That's got a good quarterbacks going to the playoffs things like ya he'd be a good fit. How would you Tony Brown right now fit in Baltimore Oh, it would make them wildly dangerous. What about Green Bay opposite Davante Adams all my God it would terrify the rest of the NFC coach mentioned the chiefs. So we would he fit with the Seahawks, of course if the SEAHAWKS and. I think potentially brandon whom ever signs him is getting the best version of him behavior wise because he knows this is his last chance and unlike Oakland, which gave up draft picks and a bucket of money to get him. So when they had to cut him, it hurt them greatly or New England who gave up no draft picks but a decent amount of money to get him. So when they had to cut him, it hurt their cap whomever resigned with next it's all reward no risk he's going to sign for almost no money I'm sure there will be almost no. And it's draft picks. So if it doesn't work, you just move on. So I think he's a good fit with a lot of teams, but you can speak to why he might be a particularly good fit culture wise in Seattle. Yeah I. was there. That was that was one of my last stops in. The things that I realized that it was a good fit, not only for me but for so many other big personalities coming in there because of two people Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll p Carol has set the tempo there of what he wants and the type of culture. It's unbelievable. He is counter culture to almost everyone in the NFL he actually wants you to be yourself. If you're not yourself. He'll walk up to you say this is not why brought you here. When you walk into that meeting room, there's music there's freaking noise everywhere. It's almost uncomfortable for guy coming in has never seen anything like that because it's so counterculture to what happens in the NFL peak carrow sets the boundaries they look just don't hurt the team, but if you want. To tweet if you WANNA youtube, if you want to instagram do that, he may come out in the middle practice. Well, I know what will happen. He'll he'll come in and meeting room. He's going to have your tweet or your post in front of the entire team and everybody's going to be laughing about in dissecting it. So I, really like this I will say that the. Bigger question is not about is it a good fit but is an tonio brown willing to change and I'm going to say I'm a guy hit sitting here today that the first part of my career I was part of the problem in the locker room in when we weren't winning. But then the second half of my career as a part of the solution so I've seen it. Myself were guys are capable of change because I wanted to be and that's the key is, are you willing to change? Are you capable of change and I, think he is, and for that reason I think that this will be a great fit for him. Russell Wilson will be a phenomenal team. Okay well, I'm rooting for the they'd changes his ways brand because I don't think all tweets we're going to be up as previous tweets would be up on the board but. Coach if you're on Seattle. And you're like, wow, more attention to the offense. We also got Josh Gordon waiting in the wings Seattle's offense. There's nothing wrong with it. The thing is a speeding car that's just getting more souped up. Do you feel like there's any should be any emphasis on their poorest defense that's allowing, and this is not a misprint for one reason because I'm right. The second reason it's audio and misprint on print four, hundred, seventy, one yards per game worse than the NFL. Look it would be nice to be able to go get a player of Antonio Brown's caliber on defense. But that that guy's not out there and you just gotTa deal with the opportunities that are available, and then they just come to an arms race with Seattle where who can who can score more and that's that's really where it's been just just going back to to Nick's point about there being no risk with bring him in I I don't think that's necessarily true. There is a risk. In. The sense that if he becomes a distraction I know nick doesn't believe in distractions but if he comes in and you've got to be chemistry and he disrupts that chemistry even if it's just internally then than that, that's the risk to me. It's not he good player. We know he's a good player. The risk is more what when you add a player like Kim to the mix, what does that do to the rest of the group? That's that's really doing a lot of good things. It coach and it's not that I don't believe in distractions I think in large part distractions are often overblown and I under. So let me let me rephrase it just slightly I don't want to say there's no risk whatsoever because there is a possibility decay met gap who's on his way to be in one of the very best receivers and football takes this the wrong way and it disrupts things like that is a possibility. My point is. From a team building perspective, the raiders took a massive risk and lost from a team building perspective the patriots slight risk via cap dollars and lost. The seahawks would be taking no risk as far as money or draft picks that would be risk free the chemistry stuff brain you can speak to I think there is some risk, but we saw the patriots cut him and just keep going along last year on their way to until eleven wins. and. That's why I use the word counterculture coats because this locker room is just set up. So differently, every locker room I've been in one hundred percent. There's GonNa be a big question mark. Guys are going to have their eyes open and watching his every move but this culture in this locker room they embrace and they lean into the dysfunction coach Carroll every single Monday give the guys an opportunity come up here speak your piece I was sitting there Doug Ball when he's easy to deal with Percy Harvey. You think he was easy to deal with Richard Sherman coach. Carroll does a phenomenal job of dealing with characters in guys with big Michael Bennett like think about the characters. That he's head in his on his team and every single day coach Carroll comes in and he just takes it in stride and he takes it one day at a time, and he actually get creates an environment where guys can beat himself but he also talks now if you cross the line and this is why I love coach Carroll, you cut right then but everyone internally knows you can be yourself and they also know if you cross that line coach Carroll in Snyder's won't cut you. Look we're giving Antonio Brown, big benefit of the doubt assuming that he is what you call a changed person and he's going to go into a new organization and suddenly be unlike the guy that we saw in the last two organizations he played for Balestra. Nick say Seattle Does Land Antonio Brown. Now you and it works and the chemistry works. He got an explosive offense there in Seattle. Then you look at that explosive offense on the team you root for and I just wonder who has the bigger Austin should that point which offense better Seattle or Kansas City. I have to paint you in that corner I just that's. A No I, it's a fair question I. Get it. You want to hold any team that could be great to the greatest and get the. Standard bearer fat last. For the next decade or so. I think coach that bills game was really interesting. Because the bills went into that game against the chiefs and they said our goal our way to beat you our best chance to beat you is, let's turn your running attack into Derrick Henry and the Tennessee titans because we're so terrified of your passing attack that was that wasn't an accident. That's what they plan to do all week leading up to the game and as great as is, and right now he's the MVP the league. There's one quarterback in the league better than him, and that is Patrick mahomes tight tyreek hill is better than decay metcalf Chelsea's better than Olsen. Those reasons. Chelsea's. Who Know Who's not? Zeh mcevers the best receiver in football right now no way I love the that's a whole nother segment. We maybe we talked about it tomorrow we break down some of the top receiver I. Own only be eligible to be reinstated to the NFL. Past joining us on the other side scandal here to talk about his team the Ravens and why he thinks they're the team to beat this year I. Think's earth. Affect Your First Things First Talking Baltimore Ravens the team writing a three game win streak. Thanks in large parts of that defense giving the fewest points per game through seven weeks. What are the key members of that defense aid see defensive player of the week Callejas Campbell who joins us now after his niece axe last week against billy glaze good morning. Thanks for joining us again. I want to start with why you're here. You're partnering with the Old Spice to promote a new film about education. Tell us a little bit about your involvement in Rome. Yeah so call it a black boy is the documentary. released. Just. Kinda shine a light on the on the way it is for blockades in America right now, and you know there's a big thing education in trying to use other teams that movie to raise their graduation rates, oh spices a. Your commitment to raise graduation rates across us. American. The players like me to help really initiative I'm gonNA stick some classrooms. Future and just trying to push You know just how Spicer Tournament the partnership and really make a difference in the community. That's awesome. It's great partnerships. Great work you guys are doing. I want to go to the field for a moment you have. Long list accolades all decade team, all pro Walter, Payton Man of the year you might have done something for the first time though this past week, which is you directly got a guy fired as an offensive guard blamed for the eagles. He lets you get defensive player of the week again, they get rid of him. So I don't know if you need to send him something but. I am curious as a veteran player in an elite player. We see this on the wide receiver Corner Matchup sometimes a backup corner comes in and you feed that player when you see teams banged up on the offense wine and there's an inexperienced guy of in front of you how does that change your approach like you say, okay, this is a game that I can single-handedly take over. This situation because. I remember when Jamaa Brown was rookie you got drafted by the Rams and A Familiarity with not do dame a little bit and so allow me to have an advantage. On the season he actually better as the game went alone and You know like some teams you know. So he's orange business and they kind of move a little fast but he definitely got better as the game on he hasn't played much. Sure. To kinda work off the but. I did see it as opportunities like this is the first game I really felt like best to. So I think it's a combination of really didn't go in and really feeling good. Over here in oxygen being different, you know it took a lot of rooms get the motor going so Sound good and hopefully I keep going. I'm really happy. Yeah big dog thirty four still getting it done unbelievable defensive player of the week AFC because a player of the week three sex four quarterback hits five tackles after that game and you tweeted that this team football, I am reading a little bit too much in that man tell me what that means that can mean a lot that can mean a lot. It'd be not just anybody else report a lot of guys from Buffalo Ball but there, there is a special kind of qualities. the right and do a really good job but bringing in. Guys who really loved the and there was you know you don't ten guys everybody understand has severe Puerto Denver football and it allows you drive in you put the working. It doesn't really feel like work when you're out there grinded because everyone's like you're having a good time. Skirt. Collapse Ravens defense allowing seventeen points a game best in the NFL, and this is all being done in the backdrop of a historical season opt for the offense most touchdowns most points. Do you feel like this? Season because it's such as been such an offense of explosion that's extra challenging for you guys or does it just feel like another season? Cheese and they put a bunch of points the last. Desperate Situation Rubio got going to some plays. Carson Winston. To. Be Back in a ball game and we had to fight to win. But you know the difference we're just scratching the surface we can be you know with the offseason. Going really didn't have a lot of time with each other and you don't have a lot of new parks for me and Derek Wolfe in in some rookies have to step up and make plays without. You, we really have to adapt fast and we did a really good job coaches took A. Course staff admitted incredible job of baroness but still unique offseason in Texas you're going to get a lot better goes along. I ran a few technical difficulties hearing you, which is a bummer because we've got so many things we wanna talk to you about. So we're going to get all that settled. But in the meantime, if we don't, you're on the by you got steelers next week WanNa wish you all the best of luck you're going up against as brandon would call it a behemoth of a team in in the league right now. So that'll be a great competition, Claes, thank you so much for hanging out with us this morning we are. Take. Break exactly and thank you again to old spice glazed. Thank you. Take a break talks Dallas cowboys in the latest on what's going on there and big d first things first back after this. Now and not in a good way yesterday, we talked about anonymous cowboys players reportedly criticizing Mike McCarthy's coaching staff are being unprepared for being. Not good at their jobs. As my kids would say, that's an alley. McCarthy was asked about it again yesterday in addition to sane these issues should be handled in house. He also said quote I think the key word there is anonymous, our resident Walsum dancer coach Eric Mangini back with us. Now coach, who do you think is more responsible for the cowboys struggles at this point, the coaches are the flares. Well. First of all Genera I want to know what was that on that playlist because I wanNA make sure that. I deleted. I. Don't know what I felt more on colder with your dancing or ben handles. The. Question. I I'm speechless after that dancing but but in turn to this topic. This the the whole idea of anonymous comments is is week it's week and it probably didn't come from a player I came from an agent elva disgruntle player who either isn't thinks he's not getting paid enough thinks he's not getting played. The correct way doesn't want to be accountable for the the lack of success that they've had in Dallas and and look it. It's the same thing. Last, they couldn't wait to run out Jason Garrett, right Jason was the problem. So they bring in a new head coach and this guy doesn't know what to do. You know has got thirty one years of experience but he has no idea how to coach Football Mike Nolan has thirty nine years of experience, but he has no idea how to coach football they're six games into the season. It's it's ridiculous for for if someone did do this anonymously a player did this do this now anonymously it's just week you have every opportunity to go in and talk to the head coach and tell them what your concerns are. It tell them what you think should be changed or could be changed and hill he will listen, and if you don't feel like you're gonna get satisfaction there, you can talk to the cap and there's so many avenues to to travel down before you start putting anonymous comments in the paper. It's just it's a sign of of a lack of character lack of leadership lack of being a teammate it's just plain week and wrong. Wow. Coach, Yeah Coach I. Agree with you on that one. It's absolutely unacceptable. You look. I would actually be a problem if you're my coach. And I was in this locker room I was your wide receiver and this happened I will actually become part of the problem because you have probably went into the team meeting room and say guys, this can't absolute. This can this can never happen I would have stood up and I would have said who, who said it put your name on it and you're right brandon please sit down sit down but coach. I think it's both the player and the coach. I. Truly believe that in all I heard you talk about was well, it's the player's agent or the player I just think what you said is critical. You have to be a coach willing to listen to your players. Some coaches don't, and it sounds like you're, can you take me to take into any of those moments where one of your players came to your office? Is like look coach I. Don't think this is working now this is the tone in the locker room you know I think we need to fix it. Did you take it in and what did you do? It it was. It was always the case whether it was when I was a defensive backs coach and lawyer Malloy tylar Rodney Harrison had ideas on on different ways to do things. We'd always talk about that or it's a defensive coordinator. If Mike Vrabel or Bruschi or any of those guys spoke up and said, they had something that they that they thought could be a different way we live about that was natural. That's good boy. It's just it's just part of having a relationship. It's part of a all working towards the same goal of the same thing as a head coach you're constantly working with your quarterback. You're constantly working with your team captains. Your goal is not to be adversarial with your players. Your goal is to get the best possible situation for everybody involved because we all. Depend on each other all of our success is tied into to each other and and it's in my best interest to help you be as successful as you possibly can be as a player and when you start pointing fingers, it's the classic. It's the classic trait of a loser mentality. It's not it's not me it's you. It's not me it's new you know what came. Personally. Personally, to make things better. So yes, listen. On this false spectrum of things I like and don't like doing on television on the furthest left bound of things. I like the least it's watching that clip of Jinnah Dancing. On the furthest, right. Things, I liked the most. Blaming coaches for teams failing I love it. Wakes up in the morning this guy did not to go for four thousand this guy. This guy doesn't understand who to keep on the court at the same time doesn't matter the sport give me to about game five of the world series and I'm coming for one of these guys haven't decided yet what is coming? With that said. This is outrageous by whichever cowboys player or players said it. There are plenty of times wilds to blame coaches when you of allowed thirty six and a half points per game the worst in football by half a touchdown that ain't it when you have committed the most turnovers in the League fifteen and forced the fewest turnovers three that ain't it. It is not coaches foltz that Zeke. All of a sudden started becoming a fun work Michael. Gallup's dropping touchdowns that the safeties don't understand that what honestly I think they named the positions safety just so you don't know football it's like well what I'm supposed to. Make. Sure everybody say. Like that's not coaching. This is the players being terrible, and so there are plenty times wild I wanNA, blame coaches the. Greatest Thank the. Just passing the buck and so I find it as embarrassing coach does. Just, to play the other side of it, Mike McCarthy said he was prepared to play the cardinals. The cardinals came into Jerry World and smash to the cowboys. So often the player I can be like you know what our coaches setting prepared turns out. He's not prepared. Oh. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA. Grant. All go to the media like it's just the truth I is player. Don't think I have the avenue to tell the coach or tell the captain because the captain likes to co- your I feel like I don't know I'm taking the other side of this one coach I I haven't seen anything put on tape where the coaches are immune from criticism and player. Maybe I don't see the avenue may there on. The Avenue to to send that message. While the. Jazz. Dancing the they're their take where. They're at a place where the coach is an all-powerful powerful. The DMZ is the owner g is the owner if. It was great Jenner. So. If you don't if you're happy with with. With the recourse getting from dealing with the head coach, you can go talk to the owner. It's not like a totalitarian regime where there is no other avenue you have another avenue before you go to the media and you're telling me that Jerry Jones wouldn't listen to a disgruntled player of course, he would. You. All right. Let's switch gears and talk about a little bit of Lady Unveil Brett Farve Johnson on the chiefs signing all pro running back not as huge spaded. The move guys listen to what five had to say said, well, they don't need them. They've got a good thing going in sometimes adding player of. Caliber can do more harm than good. I'm not saying it will, but you know think about it this way, what can they do with Levy on that? They are not doing already other than feeling the need to give him the ball to police in, which is really all that you're putting him in there for. So Brandon taken away you agree with far where do you fall on this? I do agree with. But I don't think that it will happen in this situation, but I agree with them because you know I experienced this I realized when I was too high strong for one in the ball or being involved I would disrupt the rhythm of the play caller I knew that I could disrupt the rhythm of the quarterback. What you want is your quarterback the drop back and just feel free going through his progressing going through his reads and making the decision he think is best. But when you have a high strung wire receiver player that. Once. The ball that things that thing that goes on in a quarterback is hit. It's like man if I don't get this guy to ball. Then when I get to the sideline, is he going to yell at me or we're going to have an argument or is he going to POW? Does he want to shut it down? So those are things that are a strong player who wants the ball can potentially disrupt when it comes to that offense the offense coordinator you want that offense coordinator say you know what I'm in a rhythm? I'm calling it up. We don't I don't care who gets the ball. We just want the W.. But if you have a guy like look I haven't touched the ball in a quarter two quarters or the last four games I really haven't been productive give me the ball he's got nor I got to get this guy to bog. He's GonNa come in my office Monday and Wednesday, it just disrupts everything you're trying to do on offense. So for me I do understand what Brett Farve is saying however in this situation, I, don't see. That happen you have a veteran head coach and then you also have a quarterback who has set the set the standard saying that I distribute the ball equally whoever's opens going to get the ball yes I have my plays. Yes I know my guys ended the day. They have so many weapons and they do a great job of getting everyone involved and you've got to imagine that they had a conversation later on. This is how we're GONNA use you sign off on it he started off on it and certainly view on he'll be fine. To your point brandon, it goes back to our Antonio Brown discussion. If you add a player that could potentially disrupt the chemistry then then yeah, that's that's an issue and that's a risk you take I don't think this is that situation watching LE`veon's press conference I felt like he was excited to go there and play a role he was excited for whatever opportunity that that he got and he wanted to win and to me that is the perfect perfect. Situation for a team when you're adding Lebanon Bell and I know he was a disappointment, New York remember two years ago. He had sixty six for the jets. It's not like he had no production whatsoever. But now Levian on bell is an afterthought as part of the weapons that you have to stop and if he's a fraction of. Of the guy that that he was, it just gets to the point where what what are you going to take away it eventually come to the point where you're going to spin the rolodex against Kansas City because you're not really taking away anything. I hope something hits because it doesn't matter where they go to. They can be explosive I I really like his attitude going to Kansas City. I think it'll be liberating for them and I think it will give them a chance to revive his career. Yeah I. Think the key is we got a window into what matters Selebi on bells coach was alluding to by seeing which team he chose he could have gone to Miami listen I've lived in. Kansas. City. For twenty years of my life. Great Town. You want to raise a family low cost of living second most fountains of any city in the world but if I was young rich and single MIAMI. If I'm worried about nightlife, right? Yeah it is true. Only has more look it up. It Fountains Sectors Wha Fountain capital of the United States, look it up. and. So the The fact that he chose the chiefs over Miami the and the lifestyle or the chiefs over the bears where he would have just gotten the touches, the bears desperately would use him more than the chiefs will. So it speaks to me wilds that he's putting a focus on winning the king knows he doesn't think he's going to Kansas City and GonNa be the number one option, right so I, just I feel like Gena that we have an idea of what's important to by the fact that it'd be one thing if he was on waivers and the chiefs clean them and he didn't have a say in it but he chose the chiefs which gives me optimism it's. Virtually dance with me. Joining. US If that's the. Only some day. Now. Golden. Up Crying? Some friends on the other side watch us more ready. I looked in the right but wait hold. Your. Video. Guys. For Stories to start your morning sponsored by Ranchera built to serve in our top story this morning grounds reeling after tough loss to the steelers last week yesterday a very stowed Baker Mayfield was asked about all the criticism his team is hearing. Take a listen. I, don't give a damn what they say. It's been this building. We can be better I know I can be better and that's how it's going to be handled outside noise doesn't matter they get paid to talk. We get paid to do our work. So that's sounds good. BROWNS team. You think they're criticized too much or too little. Well. The fact that we're talking about this is the answer the question. Answer is revealed in the question. It's too much for four to. This is. Anybody picking the browns go to the Super Bowl before the year I didn't see it. Show me. I. Follow all the prognostication I didn't see. Any browns players saying we're going to be a thirteen and three team. This division is ours I. Didn't hear that but show but show me if I miss the clips. Did what folks were demanding they do last year they were quiet. They went about their business and through six games of the season. There are only seven teams in the league better than them but they have a polarizing quarterback who people some folks guy calm cowards one of them who are you guys know how much I Adore Collin Collin hadn't like Baker since Oklahoma and will always pick at it and he's a polarizing guy ever since he planted the flag when he was in. College and the way he conducts himself. So we are going to find ways to win the play well when they when they beat up the colts who everyone loves going into that game, how how often is it disgust never but when they get crushed by great team in Pittsburgh and then Baker says I'm not listening to the noise. We say, well, he says he's not listening to the noise but I brought in a body language expert here who tells me the way his Eyes Roll is listening to the noise like we're a bad political show and Odell, which I know we'll get to will always be polarizing. He's brought some of that onto himself modell who has been a perfect citizen. This year is finally to tell in America. You know what I'm done I'm done trying to change why am I am I am so of course, they're criticized too much. There's four teams in the AFC with a better record than them seven and the whole league with a better record than them they are not underachieving but because folks don't like some of the people on their team, we're gonNA find ways to tear them down. But the issue nick is that when you're on the losing. Team and you're in a losing organization then you're criticized too little. They haven't had a winning season since two, thousand and seven. We just talked about how long it took for them to start a season four one. So I don't care if it's the Cleveland browns the Jacksonville Jaguars jets like if you're not a good team, then this comes with the business. This comes with it. This is part of being a pro their. This is why his words this is why his words is not about like. Okay. I got to answer this question. It's how he's answering it like he has a chip on his shoulder. It's comes with the business you get to a point as an athlete where you know the tough questions are going to come. So you do it in a way where it's like you know what it is what it is we didn't play. We didn't play great last week we started off really good we'll. Get back there. All you gotta do is fall example someone vets around the league. That's what I did when I got in the League. I didn't know how to talk in front of the media. I just watched every single time pay in manning was in front of the cameras I watch Peyton manning and I said I'm going to do exactly what he does and all he has to do is watch Cam Newton. Look around Lee Cam Newton just play the Denver Broncos the Denver broncos without a quarterback and they lost eight what did he say? I know everybody thinks this guy's GonNa fall down but you know what I'm GonNa come I'm GonNa come to work again. We'll get this thing career ended. Here's the problem. Here's the problem. If Baker said, I know everyone thinks the sky is falling I want to get an umbrella. You know what the question is. Why is Baker Mayfield listening to the outside noise we can always phrase it. Why does he know everyone thinks the sky's falling? Why is he feeding into it? Why is Baker? We can always do this and by the in Cam by the way was talking about. Refine this. Correct. But you you just went back to his time in Oklahoma. He's been a high profile guy. So I'll I don't care what they think it. All only thing that matters what we're doing inside. Well, you better care because those those days are over were leading quarterbacks. Developed over five, six, seven years. If you don't hit it within three years, they're drafting someone else because that is an issue we know that this team this team is set up is not, oh, we got we drafted our guy and this quarterback is going to lead the way. No, they're saying, let's run the ball. Let's only throw it fifteen twenty times a game. This is not modern football. You gotta be able to go for three hundred yards weekend and week out and he's not that guy so that's why they're not even set up for success long term. Will Baker wasn't the only guy criticize yesterday Odell also chiming in on the critics as well. He was seen on the sideline member of shoes were off. He was yelling at fans he threw his helmet down after he got pole. Take a listen to what he has to say about it. Mom Pierce and at this point I really don't care keep trying to make make my show looked like a good guy into the world and it because I am lying I got pulled out of the game. The coach said, this is the best decision you know we're going to. It's eight minutes left and familiar rather take my good man I rather take my win the same way Of last. Compete. Kind of over. You know trying to play the right because. I love him to death but those people who? Have Plenty of rings and considered the gold and they. Do things on the sideline and. Do things on the sideline and they get away with it and classified as passionate because. They're they may have. Something behind the legacy or whatever it is in Sydney. We love much much. I Brandon what was your reaction to what Adele had to say There's a lot here I mean we can spend the entire show breaking down Odell. Why receivers one hundred percent? There's a double standard he's talking about Tom Brady yes. But here's the challenge when you're an emotional player union emotional person right? We Tom Brady do this but it doesn't mess with his production and there's an argument that there's like Odell when he when when his emotions get the best of him. He doesn't play well. When is the emotions get the best of him it may disrupt guys on the sideline and I'm saying that from experience. So when you look at Tom Brady when he does that guys get better when Odell does that sometimes guys get better sometimes they don't and I just think that when you're an emotional player and that's what's gotten you to this point it's a very difficult thing to do is like to manage it window I, turn it on when do I turn it off and I think Odell has gotten better over two years and it's just a big struggle for guys like you gotta think about it. The things that make him who he is is the emotion it's unmatched, the passion, the drive that dog mentality. But then there's Times where you can just cross the line and it can affect people in the building. So I think Odell has done a tremendous job since he's less left the new. York giants and even there he was getting better but there's still some work to be done. Do. You think this is all just a PR problem nick. That the browns just have a bad PR strategy that Baker says things like well, that's not the right pr move and then and then Odell took shoes off and I said earlier because like well, that's an interesting story. That's GonNa be a thing and then brandon in the meeting you're like, no man, those cleats are super uncomfortable. Like. You take your shoes off I would take them off to and it just wasn't a story because maybe there wasn't a camera on my feet. But like so there's GonNa do. Geno, what else do you listen I? Know what you're GONNA say it doesn't matter what he does. You'RE GONNA. Do it combination of. Miami thing down taking his shoes off yelling at someone in the crowd like if it was just the shoes I, get it was a moment and writer wrong. It was a moment from him and people are going to decide him. He is a polarizing figure and now I listen I to what he said then hands. Rate and this is. This necessarily John Hood. That's your job Nick no no, that's your job. That's one thing that we're missing is not just about football when you make it to the NFL, you don't just develop as a football player you. As a person, you develop as a husband who developed as a father. How you sprain because here's the deal daily. Dale knows this hold on one second one second. Here's this is what we gotta get it absolutes. You know who you are. You know your emotional player look I'm talking now I know I'm emotional. So you know what I knew is that when we were losing a game if Jay Cutler threw a pick that there was gonna be six, I knew exactly how many cameras would be on my face any any change of of of of momentum in A. Game, there's going to be six cameras on my face. So what do you do because you know you're highly scrutinized you sit there. You don't give them anything and that's what the greats do. You gotta developing that area. So yes, it's Dell is unfair sometimes yes. But at the end of the day, you've got to continue to develop Tom Brady. Yes he's. When he continues to develop Iranian. I. Got it. Now I got and I've never. You know you're arguing against the point I didn't make okay. Odell has developed. He has improved. He's not fixed. It's not a hundred percent better. As you said, he's growing he's improving he's learning and we just pick guys that we are going to a serie was Odell Beckham junior the only player this week. Here's here's this. Because Jars not, it's the job which are saying is like blended because jar does. As. Last year last year, we were told for the browns just win gangs and this year they are winning games. So we're talking about shoes and Baker Mayfield. We had another. Guy Dissect that's it. We're never going to be fair with these guys. They're polarizing players on a polarizing team much more to discuss i. have a great day. Everyone. We'll see tomorrow.

"With everything going on for Mike McCarthy, he has had to make sure everyone knew that wasn come from him he needs no more headlines on this eve of Halloween morning. Welcome to first thing first general alongside Nick Right Brandon Marshall. Kevin Wilde's we are. We're festive. That's music plane ride I think I hear that my ear although I've been. For three years now, we got a great great show for you coming up today to jam-packed hours getting ready for a fantastic week in football and let us start with. Marquee match up off the weekend, the five one ravens hosting the six and steelers surprisingly diverse head to head matchup between Big Ben and Lamar Jackson. What's on the line? Oh I don't know how I place in eight crowded AFC north. Brandon Marshall My friend, we hand the reins over to you take us through the keys to the game. How do the Ravens take down the League's last undefeated team? You guys mess with me. WE'RE BACK WITH THE JETS JERSEY weapon to the bears journey. Off. Right now you got. Your Yes Jersey. The. Strange. Look listen. So you guys know that I picked the Pittsburgh steelers to win no, make it to the Super Bowl and lose to the Seattle seahawks. So this is a big game for our boys what for the Baltimore Ravens, to get a win here or the keys to their success starting with Lamar Jackson in this offense, Lamar Jackson has to be seventy five percent completing his passes with zero interceptions last year nick. Three interceptions had ECKERD accuracy issues and he struggled reading coverage. So it starts with the Lamar accent number two. With these wide receivers have to do they have to get back. Do you know Yack is I'm sure you do yards after catch I need a hundred yards after the catch because this defense do a phenomenal job of eliminating the big play. So we need to see slants and bubbles going for fifteen yards, twenty yards, hell taking the distance. That's the way you're going to win this game because look what they did last week versus the Tennessee Titans and Derrick Henry stopping the run. This is what you do. Well, they're going to take that out. So you guys if you want to win this game you have. To be efficient and you have to be really good in the passing game with yards after the catch and the last thing going to defensive side these guys thrive in chaos they throw so many complex blitzes, blitzes and disguises at you. So what you have to do is confused, Big Ben, yourself because the way play defense sometimes backfired on them and they give up the big play and big been will he will expose you if you give him an opportunity. So this week super simple. Those three things Lamar Jackson seventy, five percent throwing in air zero interceptions, hundred yards yet and confused Big Ben and not yourself. All. Right. So I find all this really interesting brandon and I think the Lamar stuff is probably the biggest key to this game because an underrated storyline, the season is quite simply Lamar's regressed from last year particularly throwing outside the numbers where he's had no success whatsoever. But. What I find most interesting about your keys is you usually approached the keys from a what the underdog must do to upset the favored team perspective. I don't linger even for the underdog in this game. And not only are they not the vegas underdog I don't think they even on a neutral field necessarily would be the underdog Baltimore has flown under the radar entirely this season it's as if people watch them on national television, get beat up by the chiefs and they wrote them off. The problem is aside from that chiefs game, not only if they won every game. Chiefs game they have had seventeen point fourth quarter leads in every game. Now filling came back in garbage time it wasn't quite garbage billy came back to make it a game ostensibly late but Baltimore has annihilated. It's competition. It's defense I. Believe is better than last year it's running game is nearly as good as last year. So why are they not? Being discussed as much. The answer I think is because Lamar's yards per game down his yards for temperature down his completion percentage is down his passer rating is down and he isn't having the wow plays through the air that he had last season to go along with the consistent while plays with his legs and wild that to me is going to be. The deciding factor of this game nobody could earn on Pittsburgh Derrick Henry good, and run on Pittsburgh. Nobody can run on Pittsburgh and marking rooms banged up a bit is Lamar going to be able to take advantage of back they don't have Devin Bush out there in the Middle Colin signals for him and beat a team through the air would John Asli. Done or hasn't had to do since week one this season you. Yeah. I think people are underrating or properly rating. I would argue the ravens because where's the big win? Where's the big win that I'm pointing to that I'm like the ravens they're so good. They had the chance against the chiefs in they blew it and we all watch that big eagles comeback. So I'm not impressed with a win over Washington or Cincinnati or Texans wind up fire in their coach so I'm not a believer in the. Question for you. The what win now. Average the browns. They violated the team, the trials. Noted that while I'm not I'm not trying to undercut you I think that I think what the problem there is. It happened before you knew the browns were a good team I think. We're. Going to be. An eight hundred. Two six one. While it's wild, I'm with you. I'm with you. What Win Browns are you seriously? Your question. On, this game. Go ahead go ahead. No no go Jenner. Get this is leaving. Right here I'm going to take it from you number. Okay. All right. All right. Here we go Julio Jones thinking last night I wanna get to this before we break heels, the falcons be Carolina's seven catches one, hundred, thirty, seven yards from him and to boot this little gem of a quote. Listen Up. You think you still the best wide receiver in the national. Football League. Absolutely I think I'm the best I mean no doubt about it just the way I go out. Ahead of my business and you know we can a week out. Early on in the season. But I mean, you'll see just keep watching. Jones clearly still working on his confidence grand in and you in or out on Julio being the best water seaver in the NFL. Come on. Don't put me in this spot. I gotta do life with swear receivers. We've got a little community go in. Don't put me in this look last night when I turned on gang first quarter opened up they went Julio twice back to back and I was like, wow, this is still amazing. Still getting it done at a high level that deep out cut the way he sunk. His hits hits at the top of the raw I said, wow, this dude is still phenomenal but right now Julio I'm out on this one buddy I. Love You. I think your dog, but your team isn't winning at the rate you guys should be so I gotta go the Andre. Gains indicate metcalf one, eighty, one, B Nick don't ask me WHO'S A and don't ask me WHO's be. Art, fair enough somebody's sitting this to Julia Bernie Marshall says he's not even. As, good. As good as. Or the Falcons still just win number two on the year Cam Newton's patriots also only to win wait till you hear what cam had to say about how important a win on Sunday is for New England still to come I things i.

The last twenty years would fall to two and five pats need a big game at of Cam. Newton. He's gotten zero touchdowns and five picks his last two starts, and now he's going to be without hall of Famer, Julian Settlements sidelined after having a knee procedure. So here's Cam. Newton. On what's on the line on Sunday Losing. Is Not. Acceptable. In this locker room. In this county. In the state. In this area. In this region. So G- Cameron Newton. Need to pick your expletive. That's what I've learned. Brandon I gotta ask is Cam Newton playing for his job on Sunday? Well, you heard him yes. Absolutely. Especially when you look at last week being benched now the alternative is what you know. It's not great but I just think that the Patriots are in a position. Where they lose this game, they could blow distinct up they don't do anything. Well, he also has some interesting quotes yesterday where he talked about this, not being on Josh mcdaniels This not being on this yesterday I, talked about you know men, there's something sloppy about this team protection. You never see free runners running at the quarterback we haven't seen that in fifteen years and and Cam. Talked about this is on me I gotta start with first idea and who the Mike is. You always see the quarterbacks, the pay man Tom Brady's of the world cam before they even hiked ball fifty five's the Mike Fifty five's the Mike. I don't know if he's doing that correctly right now going off of what I'm seeing on film, and also from his comments, you're seeing these free runners you never see that before you can drop back and make a good throw in before we can even discuss the pigs or touchdowns we gotta first make sure guys are. Set, I make sure he's plus to make sort of motion is coming make sorta protection set and then you get into playing the game but there's too much thinking going on in this highlights y you know guys like Tom Brady going to Tampa and doing what he's doing right now. So special because that process takes awhile I talked to my Vick vixen it takes a year before you can master offense. So you're seeing Cam Newton and being in his head and be before we can even discuss kimmy get back on truckee and I to get this offense down nick. Well. So a few things first of all cames press conferences are usually great but he gave every- geographical designation there and he didn't say Commonwealth and he plays Massachusetts. Commonwealth. So a bad job by Canadair geographically be. This is a fork in the road moment for the Patriots but not for can cams going to be the starter next week against the jets? No matter what you know why? Because what are the other options? There aren't any Brian Hoyer or them the last time? Those two guys were prominently involved in a Game Kevin Wilde's petition the NFL for that game not to count for a loss for his team or a win for my team. The quarterback play was so bad. He's basically called that game a win because they only lost by sixteen given how bad the quarterback play was cam is going to be the quarterback for this team until they are mathematically eliminated. But wild I, have good news for Cam Newton good news for the Patriots and the good news is one name. It is two words that good news is Josh Allen. Because you've got this weekend and that's a great way to get back on track Josh Allen, Everyone Trinity, and BP pick. I'm not naming names, Brandon Marshall through a first month of the season since then he's got four touchdowns, his team has four total touchdowns. He has three interceptions and he looks a hell of a lot like he did in Wyoming when he couldn't even be first or second team all conference, and so the bills are struggling the Patriots. No the bills are the team they have to get through in this division this year and they beat them twice last year in very close hard-fought games and the Patriots. The jets coming up next. Meanwhile, the bills have the seahawks coming up next. So in my mind, there's a great opportunity for the Patriots to kind of a race. How bad. The last month has been with a good game against buffalo and I think that's exactly what we're going to see this week and while I think the Patriots win. Yeah I'll give you one name two words, mother. Nature, is going to be a brutal day in buffalo super rainy were like forty five to fifty mile per hour wind gusts. So what here's why I? Think that's good cameras in there like you said just thinking too much looking around too much. We just I just wanted to react and if we don't have these huge plays because mother nature is. Blown the ball all over the place de. Boom let's just hand the ball off expert gene toilets just gets yard little known talking about it brand. He said, we don't do anything. Well, it's because really we have bad pr we're the fourth best rushing team in the league we run more poor game then the titans, but we haven't done it recently it's went from fifty one also won seventeen who. Go that's what I'm saying that I know, but we still run the ball. We just kind of got away from it. So now that it's pouring rain, but just hand the ball off just simple stuff in this is what we need to get cam bats, Roy I. Don't want I'm glad we're not like in a dome and came supposed to sling it all around I think like let's just start restart slow and just like hand the ball off let's get some guards get out of buffalo with a wind brandon. And that's the biggest in. Yes I mean that's that's a valid point because their weakness in their greatest opportunity this week is against that defense align that defense allowing is banged up. They got guys sitting on a bench healthy scratches. This is the biggest opportunity. If they can get back to the run, it could possibly open back up that play action pass that they did so well week one week two of this season. This week. Remember we discussed the possibility of the Patriots. Training Defensive Player of the Year Stefan Gilmore. Now, there's a report it says, New England is actually open to trade tops on almost any one before Tuesday's deadline. So Brandon should patriots just. I mean for lack of a better term clean house if they lose to the bill Sunday and fall to two and five. Yeah. Absolutely. They don't do anything well in the standard their new? England. You heard. Cam talk about it. It's to win and it's not just the wind just regular season gains. The Standard is the wind super bowls. You'RE GONNA, win the Super Bowl with this team you have no chance. So the best thing that you can do right now is take advantage take advantage of this opportunity to rebuild go head trade everybody trade the House, even hall of Famer Julian Ataman come back next year and have a better shot at it. And building you I, don't know if men right now would even fetch a conditional seventh rounder. Helps you rebuild the house but listen, okay the Patriots are GonNa win. Sunday. They're going to be a game and a half out of I and so they're not gonNA train anybody if I'm wrong. And they lose then I do think Stefan Gilmore is a guy you would shop but Gina I this. This report rings a little hollow to me because I think the Patriots are always listening to any offer spell check is very good about value and good about saying if you WanNa overpay for something I have I'll let you do it. So I think you could run this report at any trade deadline the last twenty years he's always listening doesn't mean he's acting. All right let's take a and talks in the Cleveland Browns. Now in Baker Mayfield get Cleveland a win without Odell we'll break it down next bursting. So I. Answer you'll know it soon. Tomorrow starts Saturday strong with the big news. Saturday game of the week, you got Jim Harbaugh on the thirteenth ranked wolverines facing off with the spartans. It's one of the wildest big ten robberies and it all starts with big kick off at ten eastern tomorrow on. Fox. Any Fox sports APP. All right gentlemen time for drawing a blank. LET'S START IN CLEVELAND. Bay Grin. Beckmann hosting the raiders Sunday on Fox first game for Baker with no Jay. And they can gain some ground on the steelers and Ravens. But Brandon the player you're most excited to watch and we ate is blank. Oh. Yes. I love this block. I have to go with two I. think There's something special about saying rookie quarterback's first game, and then also yesterday we talked about it. This is GonNa be baptism by fire. Now, what's that guy's name again nick and wilds Sue oh no, no knows Aaron Donald Aaron Donald, we'll get back on track with three sacks. This week because tour is going to have to learn the hardway and understanding how to protect himself in point out the Mike and set the protection. It's great answer. I'm super wants too as well. I'm going with the different quarterback. I'm going with Lamar. The Ravens are really really good. Lamar has not been really really good throwing the football and I would argue that in the calendar year of two, thousand and twenty. Lamar. Is Only played two meaningful football games. The, playoff game they lost and the chiefs game they lost. This is third meaningful football game of this calendar year I don't think he's going to go story. Concerning if he goes oh three and so I'm excited to watch Lamar up against the dominant steelers defense wives. Nick I'm going with Chad Hanney's it as a joke that the teacher GonNa play Jay actually think it's a smart decision if they get out to a monster lead. What's the line we at Nineteen and a half still twenty? Three. Season gave twenty twenty. All right. So he goes into like a preseason game play the first half and then sit down with Chad Hannie expect some big thing. That's the. Gentleman he's not GonNa let the chiefs jump out to that huge of a lead. But Let us talk about the chiefs Mahone and company big favorites Sunday matchup with the winless jets I. Just mentioned it chiefs favored by twenty. Now, sure upset is even a possibility with that kind of point spread but brandon the team that should be upset alert in week eight is blank. They have the Patriots in wild wins last time you heard that the Patriots were underdog and we're picking another team to be upset alert this year twenty, twenty can't get any wilder but I gotta go with the bills here I still believe in them. To me they have everything they need to make a run at it. I know nick is going to crush me for this what. Bills against the Patriots. I want to understand. Are you saying you think the bill is will get upset by the Badri is the bills will beat the Patriots I want to make sure I understand no yes. No. So I think this let's look they can't win. They can't afford to lose three in a row. I still believe in his bills team the Patriots who I don't believe in can come in and win this game. They do have a nice matchup because of that running game that whilst talked about earlier and also defense line who's nonexistent so they have a chance. Okay. All right I'm going with I. Think the Patriots are going to beat the bills but I'm going with. SEATTLE. Could get upset this week and by San Francisco. So few factors that concern me but most notably is the discrepancy and how much all these two teams had to play last week San. Francisco had an early kick against the Patriots that they could really start resting guys and take the foot off the gas after three quarters the off from the other hand played the night game of fifth full quarter in overtime against Arizona, I, think all of that plus the line strikes me as a little funny Seattle only three point favorites feels like vegas is begging you to bet on them I. Think the niners upset the seahawks this would. Go with Mother Nature in Buffalo you upset granted to be Super Wendy it's going to be super rainy but about three thirty, when the Patriots win the game watch out rays of sunshine emanating out of Foxborough enlightening taking everyone happy on this dark. Tober Day. She'd be November. All right well, I'm going to take your forecast and raise you one. The Patriots have lost three in a row wild first time since two thousand and two. We talked about a rainy and windy setting for this game. Against the bills, patriots desperately need a win bills you could say desperately need to win but brandon the team that most needs to win week eight is blank. Seahawks go back to the last question. Nick I. Love How you take everything into consideration when you're making your pigs you're looking at oh. Let me look at this scheme. Let me look at this. You know everything about these teams, but then you also include Vegas. Oh Yeah Vegas album at three point underdogs dogs. Treatment so there must be there. So. A Lot. They have. They have a lot of Bill Texas sitting in Vegas in the Wynn Hotel Young. He's sprays. I. Love You. So look they've read to me and I see the show I. Like you too much. Sorry go ahead. I love it. No. So the Seattle seahawks man, they cannot afford to win lose two in a row. They gotta get their Mojo back. Obviously, the defense is there yet. I think there are two or three weeks away from being a decent defense when the guys that's coming in and getting them up to speed and getting them back healthy Russell, Wilson won't throw another three picks in a game. So the Seattle seahawks with this amazing opportunity that they have this year to be a contender to win the super bowl they gotta get back on track right now. Seattle's gradients brandon because if they win their in I in the conference if they lose depending on how the rest of the week shakes out, they could be eighth in the conference on the outside looking in for the playoffs amazingly because it's so bunched up in the NFC but I'm going with a different team. I think it's been warling sakes. This should be the first game. They have Michael Thomas since week one not coincidentally week one was the only time. This year they've looked great in the sins Michael Thomas last played. The story of the NFL has seemingly been the surge of the Tampa Bay, bucks who play in the Saints Division. So I think the saints just to keep pays top obey Gronk in nears desperately need a win especially if they're gonNA to have Michael Thomas back on the field finally for the first time since. September eleventh. What wealth whatever the day that week one game was so I think new. Orleans because all of a sudden Tampa looks like a potential eleven twelve win. I'm going to go with the bucks here not necessarily for standings reasons for MVP reasons is a great opportunity, a Monday night for Brady to tee off on the giants where several offensive Lineman in quarantine this is going to be a huge game for Brady's GonNa light up the scoreboard and come Tuesday everyone's going to be like, wow, I think I think Tom Brady is getting closer and closer to that MVP talk maybe taking eventually taken over Russell Wilson. Brady's never out of the. Giants, I like it. Okay finish up. Let's finish up with Brandon see OPS now Russell Wilson in Seattle hosting division rival niners Sunday on Fox Russ again, coming off that brutal pick game against the cardinals still the MVP favorite though as of right now until of course, has wild mentioned Tuesday morning. So Brandon the player with the most to proven week eight is blank. this is a good one for the past few weeks. My Guy Nick has been texting me what's going on with Michael Thomas is this story I think there's something here brandon why isn't he practicing? He goes out the practice goes back into the locker room something fishy is happening. So I'm going with Michael Thomas Nick right called it a couple of weeks ago. We got to see this guy back into football. He's too big of a piece for this team and Michael Thomas let's go baby. Let's get back healthy. Let's get back Ri- and help your team win ballgames One, hundred percent it's a, it's very curious the situation there, and we'll see if it gets silenced a bit vs big game this weekend against that great bears defense but I'm gonNA. Go with Carson Wentz. Sunday night football's Cowboys Eagles and I don't know if anybody cares about the game it's amazing if I if I were laid five thousand to one against that was the day before a Sunday night football eagles cowboys game. We weren't GonNa do six blocks on it instead it's getting mentioned here not much else because both teams have been so bad. The cowboys statistically are the worst team in the. NFL. Not named the jets Carson Winston. has been a bottom for quarterback this year neither of those things would have been what you expected going into the season the cal bolt in there's excuses for both the cowboys lost stack might the coordinator eagles entire offense align receiving core is banged up Carson needs to have a good game if the Eagles can't win this division this year then those very quiet rumblings about why did they draft Jalen hurts starting to become a little louder. So I think Carson Wentz on national television is under massive pressure when he's up against the NUCCI. Likely for the cowboys to have a big game while. Likings packers coming up. I want to show you the most interesting thing I saw the Internet yesterday from Ben Baldwin and it's an Internet graphics not made for TV. So you gotta get very close to your television or follow Ben Baldwin twitter. This is second in long pass ry look it's the play you need to make do not run the ball and second law and look how good the seahawks are doing and they'd go way way down look at the likings a terrible way. So I WANNA know Vikings Organization. Zimmer, did you see this? We can't be dead last thirty second in Long. They have to throw it Mike Zimmer Cardis this graphic you have to throw it. You've got the most approved do not run it. You can be exposed via this graphic and Ben Baldwin. Wild spending. Time scouring the Internet big showdown in. Cairo Ben. Verse Athletic Lamar Will Break It all down next first things first. Yes, he is. From the awesome WWe Thunderdome Roman, reigns his cousin to you. So the consequences from their punishing Hellenise, they'll match it's all new and Friday night smackdown live at eight eastern right here on Fox. Beck here. First things first and back to the big AFC north showdown on Sunday big and those undefeated steelers are in Baltimore Face Lamar those five and one ravens. Meeting between the two teams, this season first meeting between two quarterbacks ever, and the first game is Raven for unique and Gawk way after getting traded to Baltimore. Michael Vick joining us now. Okay. My first time I'm asking this question all morning whom wins the game on Sunday steelers or Raven Burst off stage and it's hard to believe that this is Lamar. Band's first time going. Sears that's that's surprises that within itself You know in terms of the match I. GotTa go with the Pittsburgh Steelers I. Think they've high right now six you six. you almost feel like you can't do any wrong. I can't say I've ever been six all my life but I've been born no and I know what it feels like Oh, what it could feel like the be six zero. So I gotta go with the Pittsburgh steelers. You know one thing we don't say too much about the Baltimore Ravens got a chance to watch some of close this past season. You know their pass defense sometimes they struggle and I think the Pittsburgh steelers with the dynamic group receivers that they have I. Think gives them the slight advantage in watching them the Baltimore Ravens versus the Kansas City chiefs. I've seen them struggle in that area and you know if you look at, you know dove all big picture. You know the Pittsburgh steelers similar to the Kansas, city star and not staying the Baltimore. Ravens. Struggle impasse defense. We know what the offense is GonNa do for the Baltimore Ravens the Pittsburgh steelers graded at stop in Iran and I think that's what they're hanging their hat on so. I think that the ultimate edge goes to the Pittsburgh steelers won because they played a lot of confidence that six zero right now and they have areas so hard to stop. Mike. I started two, thousand nine we started off six. No, we beat the Patriots we beat the Tony Romo leg cowboys Bro, we thought we were unstoppable, but then we only one two out of the last ten. That was oxygen. All, we implode it the next hour shit to Miami. It was all bad. Look I have the Pittsburg steelers is why so many different as a whole `nother show. Show. Right now I have the Pittsburg steelers by six I'm looking at what they do. Well, these teams, what do they do? Well, the Baltimore. Ravens, they get it done by running the ball, the Pittsburgh steelers who nick has this front seven is the best in football nick absolutely. Love this. It's what they do. They eliminate the run look what they did to the Tennessee Titans and Derrick. Henry, for that reason, I truly believe that the Pittsburgh steelers front seven is better than the Baltimore A. Run game they win this game by six. It's going to be a great game. All NFC. East. Showdown. NFC AFC. Seen, this is going to be able to. Me This is this is the old school. This is what you. This is what we are watching twenty twenty five years ago. So enjoy it gets popcorn ready is going to be a showdown. So I couldn't be more excited for the game and I love when the biggest game of the weekend is one pm a one am kickoff once. You don't have to wait until the big four, thirty game on Fox were Sunday night football. Let's get started immediately six other games on but we're focused on this. Luckily for me, my chiefs have a bye week called the jets. So I, don't even have to watch them at all focus on this game. I think on a neutral field. In neutral circumstances, this steelers might be better. These teams are very similar. They both have by DVR way, top five defense, top three special teams, and slightly above average offenses. They both have in my opinion, two of the five best coaches in football they. They are very similar. But I believe Baltimore is going to win. And I, believe Baltimore's going to win for factors that are somewhat out of both teams control Baltimore's coming off a bye. Pittsburgh. On the other hand not only played last week. Pittsburgh played a brutal game against Tennessee where they held on for dear life against a physical physical offense and football teams a whole and while they held Derrick Henry and check that hurts to do twenty carries a Derrick Henry even though they held him to only seventy five yards that steelers even I imagine feeling that throughout the week additionally while the Ravens. Just added and God kway The steelers are still figuring out how to deal with the loss of Devon Bush. So maybe the next meeting between the two teams differently. But this week and Wilde's because one team is rested. One team is fresher. One team is healthier and one team in Baltimore honest means it more right now. I. Like I like the Ravens to win this football game and tie up the AFC north. Okay I. Like the steelers. You can't run the ball and the steelers and Lamar Jackson I'm going to throw the ball in this dealers. So. Seems like it's a it's a done deal pretty simple but Mike I have a wildcard theory. The steelers lead the NFL twenty six sacks. Is there a chance that they're too good for their own good that Lamar's like all right I'm thirty first in the League and yards per game passing them right there around Sam Darnold territory, and we we can't run the ball. When they blitz me, I'm gone. I'm just GonNa take off and that will be the wildcard factor that they won't that they'll. They'll have to. Then the whole thing falls apart. That's one we blitz him he's taken off like it's have you ever played a game where you knew the blitz was coming in the defense was so good like you know what I it's just GonNa Either GonNa, win it on my own. The one thing that a mobile quarterback despises the blitz. You know the blitz is something that you suppose the. In the past game. They bring to from aside one extra you should be hitting your router. You know whatever is designed the offense whatever route is for the quarterback to get the ball out of his hands. I struggle more when I got blitz more and I think a great, a defensive coordinators overtime to look back. At the GAY Games play versus mobile quarterbacks assailant the blitz hurt I talked to read. You know numerous times figure out how teams are going to try to play me in the only talked about they're going to let you. They don't blitz you. They're gonNA blitz you so is opposite of what you think. You're right now when you give blitzes of mobile quarterback and you think you're. Really, you should be thinking pass. Oh, it doesn't work. It's time his offense you have to get out and the run game becomes obsolete. Lamar do because last last year he threw three. Against the Pittsburgh steelers we know they blitz of more than anybody in the NFL where they're right behind the Baltimore Ravens and right there with the Tampa. Bay, Bucks. That's what the Pittsburgh steelers do their zone blitzing defense. So what does the Lamar Jackson do differently this year You got to be patient you got to stay within the framework of the offense and he has to be one step ahead of the Pittsburgh steelers like you say, the zone blitz. In Pittsburgh is not district zone blitz it's complicated zone so. He has to really pay attention to detail take one play time I understand what he's doing within the basis offense to get the ball out and make sure to faces moving down the field successfully. Mars got his work cut out for him on Sunday. All right time now for drawing a blank Julio Jones Ba game last night helped the Falcons get that big divisional winning Carolina seven catches one, hundred, thirty, seven yards, and this quote from Julio take a listen. You think you're still the best wide receiver in the national football. League. Absolutely, I think on the best I mean no doubt about it just the way I go out. Ahead of my business and you know we can. Energy early on in the season but I mean you'll see just keep watching. I Michael Vick, let me ask you throwing to Julio Jones would have been blank. EPIC. Talking. Violent guy like Julio Jones and still have needed roddy white. Is, this is super bowl ring for myself my teammates. Guys wanted the best of the game and and. He. Knows it. He knows he's one of the best. He knows when he's healthy, he knows when he's nine. And we can go out and give top to form like last night they. They put a graphic up shoutout to Fox graphic to Barton last night that shocked me. Julio's only like five hundred yards behind jerry rice for most yards ever in his first years of his career, which means if he's healthy throughout the end of the season, he will break that record that is. All in the Bell Receiver Records Brandon are Jerry Rice category and then everyone else fighting for second place. Correct. He might take that from. Jerry. It is remarkable wild. Yes. You're right. Because when you look at playoff yardage totals, it's Jerry Rice and then hall of Famer Julian elements. So that's a great point ally. Thank. You. I. Thought, he was going to say something. was asked how Warton Sunday's game against Buffalo, right how much the Patriots need to win wait till you hear how he answered the question you don't want to miss it stay tuned coming back after this. Good Teamwork Nick? Thank you start your Saturday strong the big news Saturday game of the Week Jim Harbaugh those thirteenth ranked wolverines facing up with the spartans. We'll big ten robbery there it all starts with big new kickoff ten eastern Michigan State Michigan. Check everything out on Fox and Fox sports. Back. You're talking Seattle seahawks now big divisional. that. That was. Quite a transition. Big Divisional showdown at west Sunday afternoon, they get set to host the reigning champion San Francisco Forty. niners another way to put that using less words would be seahawks and niners on Fox Russ coming off his three pit game in the team's first loss on Sunday and Mike Vick is back with us to discuss all of it might do Rawson the seahawks need to win this game to prove they are a super bowl caliber team. Big is a must win situation and this is saying. That we all can relate. So I know Brandon candidates you win the Games that you're supposed to win, and this is the game that the Seattle seahawks I suppose the way they need to win. To put. Themselves back into. The super, Bowl, talks, and conversation. The one thing I know is that Russell won't throw three picks this week, he'll probably be flawless in and more. In. Control. Of this week's game because you throw three interceptions, you come back the next week you watch film you digest what happened and you want nothing more but to show that that was a fluke and to make up for. That you know that were on your plate that you can capitalize on it. So I like you know this this team is in a position where we're looking at in the sand you know they have you know the Super Bowl Aska races, they have the team in place. You know all the defense has to step up learning Carlos dunlap this weekend Jamal Adams should be back. So they just got a piece that all together win against the just supposed to win, and this is the game they should win. On nervous for Seattle Fellas. So a number of things over on the smaller. Piece of the nervousness is they're running back. Room is just a mash unit. Their top three running backs haven't practiced all week. They're gonNA start a rookie named DJ Dallas out of Miami. Here's to carries in his career in our like Dj because his name is actually spelled out DJ DJ J. A. Y. think that's an underrated thing. Not initials spell out the initial. Speaks his ability to be able to run on San Francisco here's the other reason I'm nervous for. SEATTLE. They were really impressive in a dominant week. One win. Thing over Atlanta since then let's think about what their games have looked like. New England a yard away from losing. DALLAS, they have to convert a fourth and three or they lose Miami. It's a two point game with six minutes. Left before Seattle puts it away Minnesota. They should've lost that game still upset that I lost that Bet Minnesota, the money line me my best friend of the year that didn't win and then last week they did lose five games in a row brandon that your super bowl team Seattle has been on the brink. Now, the reason that you aren't that concerns like well, they have the best on the brink player in the League Russell Wilson but nobody can roll those dice every single week and not crap out they crapped out last week they're only three point favorites at home against the niners this week, which concerns me a bit because it feels like Vegas begging you to bet on Seattle I think the niners win this football game brandon. Yeah. No I look. Here's the deal. The Cam. Newton and the Patriots. They were playing football before covert hit that locker room, Fitzpatrick your team you chose you pick the Miami dolphins to make it to the playoffs this year. So you you're. So let's not talk about the Miami Dolphins as if there's some pushover no, they're not match. Match up. And then also you can look at the way these games were set up e- Dak Prescott Dallas, cowboys that was throwing for. Four hundred, fifty yards a game before he got injured. So those were interesting matchups. Now I don't think they need this game to prove that they're super bowl caliber team I think they need this game just to stay on track to the Super Bowl. Now look defense aside. I think there are few weeks away from being a good enough defense that give Russell more. Chances to give that offense a little bit a couple more opportunities to what they do best, and that's the light up the scoreboard. They got Damian Snack Harrison coming back to Tom Teammate play with him with the jets and the giants. This do can do it both on a run defense and also getting after the quarterback you got. Jamal. Adams coming back from a growing. And now you got Carlos Dunlap where they absolutely need him to put pressure on the quarterback. So I do think there are a few weeks away from defense being good enough offensively that was Astra that was just a blip on on on on his on his stat sheet Russell Wilson throwing for three picks like that's just not going to happen again Russell Wilson Office offices. Prolific, they're awesome. I think they get the job done. They need to just settle down and just do what they do best the standard Seattle, and it's always been that way since Pete Carroll Gatt, they're wild. Let's go win the Super Bowl that's it. Give me your best stuff every single day practice game time and meeting room that is the standard status the energy so. I think your point about the defense of additions or massive, but I just want to elaborate on one small point you made before I kick it to wild, which is the difference between being a super bowl contender which I think Seattle is and being on track for the Super Bowl. We're now through half the NFL season and I. Think. We can say this the NFC is deeper than the AFC but the AFC is top heavier I. Think the three best teams in football are are all in the AFC Cam City Pittsburgh Baltimore, but the next seven might be in the NFC which is why Wilde with the win Seattle would be the one seat in the conference and with the loss they could up Monday morning on the outside looking in of the playoff picture. So because the NFC is so jammed at the top with teams with four or five wins every week feels like A near must win for any of the real contenders Wilde's. Totally agree I think we might be seeing the forty niners shake off their super bowl hangover. We're just three weeks away from them. Gee. Being pulled from the game and Shannon is hurt and they're like Oh is he herders in danger of losing his job then he bounced back against the Ramsey at three. Then had a solid game against the Patriots and what's the way to beat a hangover once it's about four o'clock you got to eat and. Headed all of the Seattle defensive but. You can have whatever you want you. They're giving up three, hundred, sixty yards. So Jimmy G., you can go up to the book fame like a little bit of. Go up there with five plates and bring them. Back. To Kyle. Failing. Good. We can come out on the other side of this being like, wow forty niners way better than we thought I. Don't know why we wrote them off in the Super Bowl. The buffet I love Mike Mike. Thank. BINGO VIC. Jimmy has been bald and I gotta give him take no credit away. I like him as a quarterback i. like him a San Francisco forty, nine Zona form. They were my team growing up on my aunt so I do root for him in the sense but. It's very easy to play. You plan from behind. You know they got behind, you know in the win loss column, and then they had to fight their way back for Seattle. You know now it's presses on every week to win and and now you got to see you got you got the San, Francisco what demand is coming into town and it's going to be fairly easy was saved for the forty nine is coming in and it's going to be harder for the Seattle seahawks. So this is a critical matchup this week and the best thing was GonNa Win Yup. All right. Let us move on play little drawing a blank. It is finally to a time in Miami the rookie quarterback getting set to make his first NFL start his dolphins had the bye week to get ready to go won't be easy Oh face a tough ranch team with Aaron Donald as hungry as ever to keep the theme going. Let. Let me ask you Mike to was first career start Sunday versus the rams will be Glang. says. I'm excited the guy. Love from what Levy another Is Game like accuracy I. Love Consistency when he was in cars are Lincoln to winner his game face. The eyes of a quarterback says at all this guy knows smiles all about business is going to be one the best and brightest stars in NFL over the next couple of years it starts on. Sunday. Love it love it. All right got talk a little brown. Is it possible Baker will be better Sunday out Odell. We'll value neck things. The other guy, you'll really good about this weekend Baker Mayfield. Let's talk some browns this team coming off a tremendous comeback. Win Sunday albeit over the one win bengals. Weekend they'd. Be. They begin life without Odell after his season ending ACL tear and so now all eyes are on Baker as he continues to try to lead this team to the postseason rounds and raiders at Sunday, it's one o'clock gets on Foucault Mike. How do you expect the Browns Philip, Sunday in the first game without Odell Expect them to look the same as they did as they finished the game last weekend. For the Cleveland browns and Baker Mayfield. He's going to be more comfortable in involved distribution is spreading the ball around now because when you got got like Odell back, you almost feel it. It's a necessity to get him the ball and you got a number one guy in Panama top dollar and you just want them to be happy. So the respect level is there I've played some of my best games when I did have a number one especially early on in my career not say decided I didn't need it. As. I got old learn how to use a number one like decides accent and. Win Getting the ball in certain spots and when it's time to to target him. So it won't be the price of having a final deal and ghetto Delta Ball. Full Baker Mayfield he'll be able to play within the framework of all fence in sometimes you know this is how you get the best out of out of offense. Self. When you take that little bit of added pressure so it could be easier for the for the Cleveland browns and Baker Mayfield but they're certainly gonna Miss Own Daily has presence I. Don't think it was hot or it shouldn't be too hard to get a guy to ball when you have a sensational talent. That's the Cleveland Browns was done with it moving forward. We'll see if it's easier and if this defines the Cleveland browns offense. Mike I'm so glad that you you sit it coming back coming from a quarterback's mouth. It means everything people don't understand the dynamic between the quarterback to play caller and a number one wide receiver puts put pressure on everyone on the. Side of the ball, even wide receivers we haven't talked about when you're a guy and you're your pay at the top and the NFL, you've proven it and you ask for the ball or you know everybody wants to get you the ball you start looking at what about me? I'm here I you know I made it through the draft A. Also produce. So I think this is going to help this. This offense I think is gonNA help Baker Mayfield, and I think it will be better for them. Now to answer your question antenna I, don't know right because your commitment to how you win defines your identity the first four wins that they had their identity was running the football. We knew that last week it was about throwing the ball. Now we know that you can win so many different. Ways in the National Football League but for me I WANNA see who they are I wanna see if they're going to go back to committing to the run game or if they're gonNA look at this and say you know what we believe in Baker Mayfield it though at thirty thirty, five, Forty Times a game. So I can't answer that I wanna see them commit to who they believe they are, and then that will dictate how we his team moving forward. Wilde's. I'm nervous for the browns this weekend. And it's not just because he's not going to be there. Because the raiders are sneaky way better than people are giving them credit for. Their wins are excellent wins they beat the saints, they beat the chiefs. The the game where they just got blown out against. Tampa was a four point game with eight minutes left before everything went wrong for the raiders and Brady to his credit played great late I have to be nice to Tom Brady because Brandon informed me if you minutes ago evidently Tom Brady got really hard life full fill criticism aiders. I just was totally unaware. Charm. And if you look at the raiders scheduled so far this year. The worst team they've played is the panthers and the panthers are not a bad football team. They played the saints, the Patriots when the Patriots are playing, will the bills, the chiefs, the bucks, and they are they're treading water. And so I think we look at the writers like, okay good team should beat them. Well, a couple really good teams. The saints in chiefs have lost to him in addition to that wild I. Think the lack of Odell is going to hurt the browns running game. I think whether Odell was having all pro numbers or not. When you watch the games more often than not he was still demanding the coverage and the respect of all pro receiver and that was making things easier for Kareem Hunt Nick when Nick was healthy and Nick job obviously is not playing this week it's right. Before a bye week for the BROWNS, they're coming off a great win. There's just a lot of indicators to where you worry about a bit of a letdown. Meanwhile, the raiders feel like me and we played really good football for three and a half quarters. Last week, we blew it at the end of the first APP allowing deep bomb, Scotty Miller, and then the fourth quarter we go with a rope for all those reasons. This has the makings of what I think would be considered an upset by a lot of people but not that big of an upset in my eyes wild. Okay so about Odell Future Mike I've got a question for you. I thought it was very interesting and there's two straight lines we can make about Oh Dell's future right if the browns play well, we don't need Odell at the browns play poorly. We need Odell. Well the third option is Does. Is it an indictment on Baker that he can't use? Odell when you're saying, I I had I had better games with I didn't have the pressure of the number one but then I got better and could use to Sean Jackson. Well, the browns are looking like they got to figure out DEL's future. They're also gotTA figure Bakers Future and I don't know if I'm willing to sign up for more Baker if I've got a weapon like Odell in my star, quarterback can't use him. Now. This is the easy question. Was I think it's time. To move on. You know has ironic is this situation is and to ask you a question. You know they'll get a glimpse of what life would our old is and I think Odiele sit back and say, Hey, I, gave it a shot I gave it a chance I believe they believe me it just didn't work out. This is a great opportunity for them to mutually outweighs no bad blood doesn't go and find him a home bega can try to continue to make Cleveland. On a short leash and we'll see what comes out of it. I think to answer your question is over for both bonds. Yeah and and I'm jumping here to you know as the as the resident wide receiver I it to me is not on Baker. It's on offense coordinator as the fast head coach play caller. You know when you look at this, he hasn't and I said this week to week three when we saw dylan the sideline. You know many emotional and and we saw the antiques I. Was the same guy in early on in my career. So I don't want to call out him in that call out myself but but I say on it to say this. The play caller has to do a good job getting your guide to ball early when you have a player like Odell and I'll go back to it a bubble screen quick screen jailbreak screen one step slanty slant quick game hits like simple stuff you hit drought converse to go route now you've got the back shoulder throw it up it doesn't have to be a perfect pass though it back. Soldier, put it in, put it in the area where he can make the play and he's also protected. That's all this guy's asking for. That's all he needs. So it starts there and then also it starts with Odell as a wide receiver. When you know you're emotional and I'm speaking to all the high school receivers out there college while receivers even a pros to watch the show. Listen you. have to understand how your emotions and how your approach to the quarterback in the play caller affects them and the team you have to be able to communicate effectively, you have to go to them now what they eat mostly. So they don't feel the pressure we have to get this ball because if we don't, he's going to, he's going to now he'll go into sale or he may get. Emotional and what we're doing. So they dropped back and they start throwing it to you and feeding it to you, and now that's one we're seeing two three picks, and whilst that's why this is a big moment for Baker in the Cleveland browns without Odell because now people are going to be able to call the game and is going to be able to drop back in run the offense freely. Right. All right Brown's inaction against the raiders on Sunday speaking of Raiders here candidate yesterday I'm Bo Jackson we have to revisit take a listen to this sound bite. This is my most polarizing sports opinion. Bo. Jackson. Wildly? overrated. Bo Jackson. An amazing. All Time video game football player, his actual career. Pretty good. I mean it's the worst. They. Might. Agree or disagreed vote Jackson was overrated. Absolutely not and one more. You can talk about why the crib or Joe Mars the oldest incentive. For someone. Who was right about our understand we're talking about votes, Jackson. I like your TV I. Love You. Thank you smart I. Think you look apart one more take like that if You WanNa Purnell and you'll be Selah sticks. Your. As the World Bank and then we'll bring you back in slowly. Michael. Ask them why sometimes you gotTa know why can you give us the why? Behind this take please other? Yes. So I appreciate you asking. So I've had twenty four hours think about this take. This. You know. Should I walk back Am I respond to. I'm tripling down. Can we show a blind reveal? Please for folks who said, I'm hating on Bo Jackson one of these people is Bo Jackson. The other person on here by the way can't say eight on him inducted him into his home town hall of fame. One of my favorite players ever show. Looking. At here. It's Bo Jackson an all time chief. Great Jamaal. Charles. The problem is that's bows entire career and to Jamaal Charles Seasons. I don't hear Jamaal Charles out here saying I'd run for three hundred and fifty yards a game. I don't hear folks saying he's you being all. He's the greatest player of all time listen but at a nice run them and when he was a royal and he ran up the wall in Seattle that was great and he broke the bat over his head and he was a great video game player. But at this point, the legend has outstripped the production there is by the way. I. Want WanNa quadruple down on the take there is by the way a musical corollary to this. It's biggie smalls. I dare not touch that third rail I'm not GonNa go there the. Windows going to slam shows all my head but so listen really good. So really good player with a really good career, but it's gone. What wilds onto. What. No, I'm. Not. GonNa. Live. Let you live on this or You Mike I appreciate you. Guys, we got a quarterback match of Sunday wrapped in a divisional match up rats in our lead story. It's like. It's so delicious Ben Verse Lamar. Thank you Michael. Vick. A thousand dollars says, Jennifer never had pigs in a blanket. From. The awesome. WWE Thunderdome Roman reigns his cousin J you. So the consequences for their punishing ellendale match, it's all new Friday night smackdown live at eight eastern right here on Fox. All right restores the start your morning sponsored by ran trucks built. Disturb we gotta start with the five and one ravens hosting six steelers to get this segment going surprisingly the first head to head matchup between big. Ben and Lamar Jackson? What's on the Line Oh have at first place in a crowded AFC? North. Brandon Marshall we hand the reins over to you take us through the keys to the game. How do the Ravens take down the League's last undefeated team Are let's jump right in. We got three keys to victory for the Ravens Number One Lamar Jackson must complete seventy five percent of his passes. Why? Because we know the Pittsburgh steelers front seven is going to eliminate the run game. That's what the Ravens do best but they're not going to be able to do it look what they did against the Tennessee Titans and Derrick Henry, they took him out of the game. All right. So Lamar Jackson, you gotta get it done last last year you threw three interceptions and you struggle. So this year we need to really get it going. This is the game to do it if you want the win. Key to victory number two. All right. So this is the wide receivers I'm putting it on. You guys. We need you guys to have a hundred yards in jack hundred yards after the catch because you're not gonNA be able to go down to fill the Pittsburgh steelers secondary do a great job of eliminating the big plate. So the screens, the quick game getting the ball out fast, you guys got to be able to break that tackle and run for fifteen run for twenty. You've gotta get it done Hollywood. Let's go and the third key defense. Confused. Big Ben don't confuse yourself like this defense thriving chaos. This defense is really good at creating just awesome matchups in the secondary, but they confused themselves at times and it comes back vitamin but so confused big bend and yourself so you can have a chance to win this game. That's the keys, right the rain and. I think those are all great keys. You didn't leave one out because this isn't something someone can do but I think the biggest factor rather than key. Is How rested these two teams are coming into this match up You have Pittsburgh the just played a brutal game against Tennessee Tennessee making a furious comeback late in even though they did hold Derrick Henry in check that's not pleasant. It's like winning twelve round decision boxing match you one. But you're feeling that for quite some time Baltimore on the other hand does that a week off and by the way if I'm Pittsburgh Mike Tomlin, I'm a little irritated. I'm like you guys know there's an old school divisional rivalry. We didn't get to do it last year because Big Ben dirt and they get a Bi week before first matchup and our next match ups on Thursday nights from neither of us are going to be but that's neither here nor there. The other part of this game that I find. So interesting is I'm going to describe one of these teams so we wanted describing. Top. Three defense top three special teams above average but not offense top-five head coach. The interest, both these teams are oddly very similar to each other. So because the ravens are more rested and because Wilde's I think the Ravens have flown under the radar bit. I am the ravens they got beat by the chiefs on national television and people tuned out. The problem is every other getting they've played except that game not only if they won, they have held three score fourth quarter leads every game of the season aside the chiefs. Game The eagles came back to make it close everyone else got beat by double digits. So I ain't the ravens are slightly undervalued. I think the steelers showed a little shakiness in the second half against Tennessee last week they I think it's GonNa take time to figure out replacing Devon. Bush and I think there are a little beat up for all those reasons I the ravens tie up the AFC north this weekend and they beat the Pittsburgh steelers. I'm going to go the other way. I think it's going to be an emotionally devastating loss for the ravens. Here's why Oh we know outside of the browns. Game Lamar hasn't been able to move the ball through the air two of four, nine, hundred, seventy, one, thousand, three, hundred, eighty, one, eighty, six, we're in Sam Darnold, territory and I think he's like well, they run the ball not against the steelers you're not going to run the ball steelers going to blitz the heck out of you and probably get a few sacks to so I think they come out on the other side of this like like like a rich family on vacation and it's like Oh, they're talking to the other Ridge. How'd you get here and they're like you know what we flew first class how did you get here like? Well, we flew on a private jet and there's a few private jets. The chiefs are going to be a private jet team in the steelers are going to be a private jet steam and the Ravens how we're really good like, yeah, you know what you are. You're not flying a private jet you're just a first class team. It's very good. Don't get me wrong but we're on a private jet and that's the steelers and the teacher GonNa take to wells. Ironically enough the actual team with jet in the name the jets are a hitchhiking. How'd you get here? We H high? Bowling. Sergeant your joke. Joke leave the. Question stopped. I. Got I got a question for you. I think one of the re reasons people aren't as high on the Ravens right now is Lamar. The defending league MVP is worse in every major passing category than he was last year Wilde's this alluded to it. He's barely cracked two hundred yards even one time post week one, and if you dive into the numbers further, what you see is in between the Hash is in between the numbers he's throwing the ball really well but to the sidelines, it's been a disaster. What do you make of how Lamar's played and that discrepancy between his success throwing between the numbers and success throwing to the outside? Is Hard to do this because I've been in these locker rooms for for very long time and I know that it takes everyone. But I'm telling you the issue and it's hard to do this because it's not just one person is never that person but I truly believe in this situation. It's great. Romans full. Absolutely. Greg Roman fall. When you break down this offense you, there's no identity. which you see in the running game, you have pistol, you have misdirection, you have power run game, different identities they're spread their quick game play accent who are you so if I'm a quarterback in this situation, yes, it's great when we're running a ball will and we have play action set up in Gaza are wide open down the field. That's easy. But when you're trailing against the Kansas City chiefs and you need to come back and win the game and you gotta spread and you gotTa. Throw. The ball around you have no identity there. That's not what you do best. You haven't really put your stake in the ground. So for me, this falls one hundred percent on Greg Roman. Now they've done a great job at this point and I'm not saying that he's a terrible coachwork because he's actually an excellent coach. But if you want this team to go to the next level and make that run year up the year, you have to develop this quarterback, but you starts with the identity. High. Game were anxious to watch this weekend patriots and bills New England heading up to Buffalo for divisional battle. I can't believe I'm saying this but a loss on Sunday and the Patriots who've done just about everything right over the last twenty years would fall to two and five. They need a big game at a Cam Newton. He's got zero touchdowns and five six in his last two starts. Now, he's going to be without his top receiver Julian Annan sidelined after Cam Newton. All famer here's Cam Newton on what's on the line on Sunday. Losing. Is Not acceptable. In this locker room. In his county. In this state. In this area. In this region. So. Cameron. Newton. You need to take your expletive. That's what I've learned. In the country also on the hung. In the Galaxy far away. That is the New England patriots way we have talked about is we started this show. So Brandon is camp plane for his job on Monday. No, no don't start with me. I'm not gonNA give this guy. This guy here I'm not going to give this guy a break. Wow this is urine team. You tell us you tell us sure. Look Cameras. For his job because we're going to win and the reason we're going to win, it's going to be a brutally rainy and Windy Day. So we can get back to basics and run the ball hate to break it to everybody just because we didn't run the ball well, against the forty niners, we're the fourth best thing team in the league we run better than the titans, but you won't show those videos all you to show. Couldn't. Josh. Titans are on forty patriots average fifty five. Because, it's going to be so rainy we're not gonNA have to air the ball out camping, get a bounceback game and also nick. He's going to be a very wet game once we win this game and will also be of all the tears rolling down the faces of the rest of the NFL when they realize the Patriots are bar from dead and we're going to end host complicit layoff game. I think the Patriots are going to win I think Patriots are going to win and I still do believe. They're going to win the division but. The question is is campaign first job and I know we don't have much time left here but wild said some very interesting. If you believe he's playing his job I don't but does that also mean he's playing for his career. I if he. The year by the Patriots. Time. For. Cam. I wish we had more time when you go into a new situation Jenna and you're in a new environment and you're coming off of being injured and you didn't play well. and. You don't play well, you could potentially be cut or you could potentially have another year. So no way out Jeremy Point Lot why they're gonNA I? GonNa. Here Monday morning.

Bucs' Super Bowl chances, Drawing A Blank, Cam Newton, Tom Brady

"Good morning and welcome to first things first as you can see. We continue to be social distancing ourselves from our homes but We you are as well Jenna. Wolfe Nick Right Kevin. Wilde's Greg Jennings all with us this morning. This is what it takes for us to talk sports and to be in your living room then. We are more than happy to do. So so let's start with the big story continuing to dominate sports headlines. Right now and that is Brady Brady was introduced as the Vulcan ears next and newest quarterback. Yesterday we didn't get the traditional handshakes and the photo ops. We did however get some vintage. Tom Brady was all business as usual. Saying the buffs are committed to the quilt goal of playing football. Which is to win. Nick I ask you this. Do the Buckskin Brady a better chance to win. Then the New England patriots. Of course not and. I don't know that anyone realistically believes that they do. They are in a far tougher division. Tom Brady goes from having to beat Josh Allen Sam Darnold and Ryan Fitzpatrick to having to be drew brees Matt Ryan and Teddy Bridgewater. You go from having the number one across the board defense and football last season to a defense last year that was good the final half of the year but is not being consistently good year in year. Out SINCE GRUDEN was there. Since Tony Dungy handed the reins off to Gruden nearly twenty years ago. You go from the Best Coach and most consistent coaching staff in the entire. Nfl to a good coach. Now Bruce Arians is a good coach but he's obviously not bill belichick and so the only upside brady as far as winning is he got out of Patrick. Mahomes as conference that you can in theory make the Super Bowl without having to play the chiefs but aside from that. Everything just got harder for Tom. He knows that and so it does beg. The question to me is winning. The the famous quote winning's not the main thing. It's the only thing it well. I don't know if that's the case for Tom Anymore. I think Tom as was demonstrated throughout all the great reporting since he's chosen the bucks wanted to be appreciated wanted his life said wanted to have fun at work and so. I think he obviously believes he can win in Tampa but he clearly sacrifice some of the certainty of winning that goes along with Langford. Bill Belichick coach team for some of the freedom. And maybe some of the respect that will go along with playing quarterback for Greg Jennings four eight Bruce Arians coach team for me. I think it's all about the culture. Bears two different cultures that Tom Brady is leaving and been walking into one. Had established a winning culture championships. Was everything it was the goal. It was how they went about doing their jobs. If you do your job we win championships here in New England. Now he's going into a culture that's completely different. They have to learn how to win. They APPS to establish building blocks on what winning. Looks like Mike McCarthy used to say it all the time and who quite often they have to learn how to stack success when I was in Green Bay in. I decided to Go to the Minnesota Vikings arrival. Of course I felt like we have the opportunity to win. We can do whatever I did and experienced things that I've experienced and green bay but the reality was I didn't really know the inside of the culture the way their general managers thing the way the organization from inside out in approaches winning in what I mean by that is what I got to the Vikings. They were more so enthralled with beating the packers versus winning championships. Yes every all thirty two teams are going to say. The championship is the goal but not every single team in the national. Football League understands how to go in. Approach that step by step by step as far as the process goes. And so that's GonNa be the number one thing that changes for Tom Brady. We heard it in the press conference where they alluded to him coming down there and bringing some of that winning ways in that mentality and that approach that will change the culture hopefully to a winning culture bats. What's going on Tom Brady on paper? Bay Look Great on paper but Cleveland. Browns looked great last year. But look what happened there and I think it all starts with Tom Brady. I love his approach and I think they have a chance but his odds of winning were much better in New England. Alright Wild we've established that these are two very different organizations. We know the bucks aren't the Patriots and it'll be years before the bucks or anyone else seemingly in the league become the Patriots. Is there any advantage Tom? Brady gets by being with the bucks now been he did with the Patriots at all. I don't know I listened to Bruce Arians on richeisenshow yesterday. It's a great interview. I highly recommend it just to reflect on what Greg is saying. Here's a quote that I pulled is in asked him about the Super Bowl window. You like your window is now and Aaron said. Our players believe it. We have a chance to win our division. We've wanted as a six hundred dollars getting any say we're here to get into the dance so patriots. We were talking about championship. City Celtics Red Sox patriots. Now they're talking about like getting into the into the big dance I think it's a whole nother world. Tom Brady is stepping into so the other thing that we learned yesterday from Tom Brady is that he himself knows that. He's got a lot to learn by going to Tampa Bay and it's not just everyone else learning his system. He's learning there is he. Said quote hopefully the knowledge and experience. I have will allow me to transition quickly nick. How much should the bucks adapter Brady and how much Tom Brady be adapting to? The buccaneers and their system. It's a great question and it's going to have to be a combination. The question is is fifty fifty sixty forty eighty twenty. And I want to dive into that if I may just for a moment expand on Wilde's and Greg's point there's a great video people have seen Bella check a couple years ago when they reached the Super Bowl being handed the AFC championship trophy. The Lamar Hunt Trophy. And he almost throws it down he just flips it to the side like who wants this. Come on. This is not what we're here for the bucks on the other hand if they gave you a trophy for winning the NFC south they would frame it in crystal glass at the Front of the stadium because they've been out in the wilderness for so many years so I think that does speak to the point of what does winning mean and how different teams have different definitions of what winning means. So how do the bucks achieve ultimate winning right? So who's going to have to adapt now to address? Jenner's question directly. People are going to say I think people say well. Obviously the bucks have to adapt to Tom. Tom's the goat. Tom's the one who's done it. Tom Can be the teacher and maybe on culture he can be maybe on how you don't look past an opponent he can be but when it comes to style of play and when it comes to the way the offense is run. Is it easier for one? Twenty year veteran football genius to adjust to twenty four other people or is it easier for twenty four other people. Some of whom are first and second and third year players. Some most of whom are not. Don't have the football acumen of Tom. Brady to adjust their system. I think it's obviously easier for Brady to adjust with the minor tweaks Greg. I would imagine being it. Listen everyone pays attention to route precision but now all of a sudden you're really going to have to pay attention route precision by seven. It means seven not eight or even seven and a half. Those types of tweaks for Godwin Evans will be. I think adjustments but overall Greg. I think it's going to be Brady making the lion share of the adjustments because the numbers would dictate. That's what makes the most sense. Yeah you're one hundred percent correct. I think you definitely have a quarterback who's obviously proven that he's smart. He's smart enough to make adjustments on the fly and mid game and give him a given them off season. He's definitely going to be able to make those adjustments with terminology and new verbiage. And so I think also it's the entire unit being tire offensive unit. And why I say that is because you're gonNA have a different voice talking to you in the huddle a voice that is not Jameis. Winston that is not Ryan Fitzpatrick. It is Tom Brady. The only difference about the voice that Tom Brady will be giving these books in what he was given the New England patriots. The Guy's listening in New England were depending on time to do it now. Towns voice is a little different bear relying on him to put him in position so that they could be special. Because they've been listening to everything. Chris God with Mike Evans. All these guys have been listening to everything. The offense of line these titans. They've been listening to everything that has been said about. Tom Brady in his lack of skill guys around him. So what does that mean? That means? Look we can't let the go down so we're going to have to make sure we're coming back to the huddle is. He's being stressed with pressure. Tom We're going to speed up these routes. We're going to cut them a little short. We're going to quicken things up so you can get rid of the ball. They have to look at him and not only allow for him to see their body. Language says his body language and say Tom. We got you because at this stage in his career he's going to rely more on them lifting him up then bay are he lifting them. White House. One of the things I love about you is that you worry about things almost as much as I do. You're actually worried about Tom. Brady right. That's what I'm understanding from what we're talking about. Well as soon as greg start talking about pressure in the pocket I started to get a little bit nervous like all the Patriots nations. Like Robert Kraft as well Robert Kraft took up big article. The Kraft family took out this big AD in Tampa Bay Tribune instead. Take care of him and I was like. Oh that hasn't even cross my mind that we're not gonNA take care of him because Tom Brady is beloved but he's also very very fragile. Led the league with forty four throwaways guys come in like Garrett of it. I'm out Knicks. Boy Patrick Mahomes twenty two our guy. Jimmy G. Twelve thorough ways. Like those guys just aren't throwing away. Tom. Tom Brady doesn't want to get hit. Greg and I'm very very nervous in Bruce Arians system. The guy's GonNa get hit the scariest in the world is since Oh seven big band Andrew Lock Carson Palmer Jamie's got sacked five hundred and eight times. Tom Brady got sacked only three hundred times three hundred thirteen. Two hundred more sacks. I just want Bruce Arians to keep Tom Brady Sake please. Have you ever had muscle pain on talking? Stop you in. Your tracks will never work out again. What am I going to do kind of pain? This is the kind of pain. Dr. Jason Wars Lund was in when he created thera gun the deep muscle massager.

Beck here first things first now time for drawing a blank so Tom Brady made his box intro yesterday. Saying he's quote got to be able to adapt and evolve. Nick Brady's Fox introductory conference call. Yesterday was lanc surreal and this is coming from someone who's been saying for the better part of eight months Tom. Brady's time with the Patriots. And it's GonNa end this off season but it's still was bizarre. The hear him and surreal to hear him talk about the Patriots in the past tense to really start to envision him in those potentially cream sickle throwback jerseys. God I hope they wear at some point and think about Tom. Brady outside of the cocoon of New England. Even we've been talking about it seemingly to no wind over the last six seven months it happened finally happened Greg Jennings to me. You've was a surreal moment. Yeah it was very cordial. He said all the right banks. These sounded really sincere and warm and friendly even when talking about the bucks but even more importantly when he was asked about Robert Kraft and the comments that were made about in regards to him one to leave versus it being on the New England patriots. Aegis has a way of being very savvy and saying the right things all the time which I absolutely enjoy and I love about Tom. Brady bats. Why players not only WANNA be around him. Organizations want to be involved with them so I think it was very cordial Jan. I thought was Bella. Chicken he's onto Tampa Bay talk about Robert Kraft and the Patriots. He didn't talk about our decades. Long Dynasty. Me Didn't talk about how Tampa Bay has been the worst franchise in professional sports since they entered the league ballot check. I like all right. Let's move on to your former team. Greg the Green Bay packers. They're adding twenty five year old wide. Receiver Devin funchess. Who MISSED LAST SEASON WITH THE COLTS? Due to a clavicle injury. Nick Rights Aaron Rodgers should feel blank about the packers. Adding funchess nonplussed. Like really okay. Thanks I appreciate that. I see cuyler. Murray gets a new toy named the Andrea Hopkins. Josh Allen Kids Save Stefan digs out of my own division. Amari Cooper was available to be had if you wanted to pay the toll and you bring me Devon punches just the next I see her in the long line of former panther receivers. That's like oh I remember when I thought he would be good one day like that is the guy you give Aaron Rodgers. If I'm Aaron Rodgers say okay I mean I I'm saying thank you for this but it's like you sent me an edible arrangement. It's not because I really like it. It's just like It's here okay. Thanks appreciate it. I think he should be nonplussed about it. Should be optimistic about it. And I knew you were going to go down that road. Because of your Carolina ties with Devin funchess in the inconsistent. Play that he provided you guys. But that's why I believe he should be optimistic number one. He's not going to be the primary receiver he's not going to be the number one and Carolina. He had to carry that load of being the number one guy. He doesn't have that Roe. Because devante Adam FBI alongside of filling that void but what he can provide in will he will provide as a big receiver that if he becomes more consistent and catching the football one of the things that Devon punches failed in my opinion catching the ball consistently making plays for his quarterback win. He needed them to. That's what Devon punches could bring potentially. They experienced big target. And for whatever reason when you have a quarterback that's relying on you to just be special because you know how special they already are timid. Step your level of play up so I think Aaron Rodgers should be optimistic. You know what I put delighted on there but I'm GonNa Change My right now too. All right MIC. I just have to tell you real quick in all's delicious not having a couple of technical issues while winning step over him to say I too got an edible arrangement last year. Nick from Steph and I sit so stop knocking on all right onto the newest Las Vegas Raider now. Marcus Mariota who is very comfortable being the backup saying quote. First and foremost this is Derek team so nip Mariota conceding starting quarterback job to Derek. Carr is flanked depressing. Come on Marcus. You're the former number two overall pick. You're trying to reinvigorate your career. Tampa gave up on Tennessee. Gave up on you understandably but now you really in theory should be competing for that starting job that you had folks like me on TV. You might be the next starting quarterback for the New England Patriots. And now you're GonNa let Derek cards as Derek Carr. Let me roll out the red carpet to you already know. You're a great guy. Everyone in Tennessee spoken for years. About what a great person community you are. What a great teammate. What a great human being and while. That's all well and good. It hasn't really served or NFL career that wealth. So maybe you should get to be get there and say hey they tell me on the back up. But I think I'm better than Derek Carr is better than him in college better than a few years ago. I had a bad couple seasons. You just wait. Derek Carr to WanNa see me in that meeting room. That's what he should have done. So I'm a little depressed that Marcus Mariota is not taking that tack. That's the tact. I would've taken. I'm also not nearly as good as a human being him innings. I had one word I was. GonNa use but I'm going to change his slightly to foolish like you don't go into a situation wanting to be a starter hopefully having the opportunity to compete for a starting position and just handed over without competing. Where do we do that at? Where do they do that? I don't understand it you you you you lonely hit the head. He's trying to revitalize his for where re resuscitate what once was what we thought he was going to potentially be for the Tennessee. Titans like you have another opportunity. Marcus step up to the plate in fight for what you want and what you feel like you deserve and earn it. Don't hand it over. I think he's actually really brilliant. I'm going with Tannehill. Ask Marcus Mariota. Sitting back thinking my backup. Just got four years one hundred and eighteen million. Maybe this backup into starter. Move Not a bad one so sure I'll be back up. Maybe I win the job. Maybe I'll get a huge contract afterwards. I like it so just on clear. Nick and Greg. You're all buying and lifts less. Those guys are being a little two nights moving onto the Texans. Their Franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson sent out a minimu- cryptic tweet on Monday so obviously rumors are swirling that he could be gone. Nick Shaun's future with the Texans is plane. I'm GonNa copy my own previous answer. This is also depressing. Now I notice Sean is going to say. That's just a drake lyric. Yeah we know. It's just a drake lyric drake. Also as millions of lyrics to choose from and you chose the one about an iconic duo being ripped at the seams and it's depressing. Because does Shawn Watson should be one of the faces of the NFL he should be future. Vp. We should have Watson mahomes and Lamar Jackson along with Baker thing. Get his act together. All battling ray supremacy instead does Shawn Watson has to play with one hand tied behind his back because his head coach. Bill O'Brien is. Gm is bill. O'brien the emperor of the team is Bill. O'brien and it's the NFL so we can't force his way out of there if this were the NBA. The show to be gone. I don't know where he built but he'd be somewhere else in the NFL. He's got two years left on his deal. And then to potential franchise tag seasons the earliest. You could possibly be gone for years from now. And by then bill. O'brien Trade Away Energy Stadium. It'll definitely trade away. Jj Watt you by name himself the starting left guard. So I'm just depressed for Sean. He's a special. Talent gives had overcome his circumstances throughout his career. And I don't see it changing anytime so he. I think his future is undecided. When it comes to the Houston Texans. Obviously they have the control they have the upper hand because of the franchise tag and the potential that they can do with that there. But anytime you get your quarterback who is not only a face of your franchise but he's one of the up and coming faces believe the national football league and he's not having. He's not excited about being where he is that. Is that just for you as a coach in general manager? Bill O'Brien foot as an organization. Because of what the trickle effect in the domino effect that can has have won the team within that locker room and losing beyond a hopkins the way that they did trading him away it was not good for in that organization specifically the guys that have to go in that locker room and play for one. Another foxborough borough bound. Let's go to Sean. Welcome to the team. I found a random internet betting site that had foxborough patriots. Twenty twenty. One quarterback stem was plus three fifty and John Watson. Courtesy of that drake tweet was four fifty. Welcome to the team future. Mvp future champions. John Watson loud through the Patriots. I'm Brady's newest weapon or the buccaneers is three time. Pro Bowler Mike Evans. Who is beyond excited to have the goat as new quarterback so nick Mike Kevin celebrating quote on that Hennessey since Brady sign with the bucks is blank so Texas. Am like listen and Mike. We all went through the Hennessy face. All of us did. If you're my age I know Mike about ten years younger than me. You went through the the hip in hint pays little hypnotic. Hennessy turns the drink green. I Know Greg knows about a little incredible hole where this is all a part of our youth growing up your drink your drink. This bad you drink this cognac. And it makes you feel like you're like you're grown man before you are but now you are grown man Mike Evans and if you're still drinking hennessy. I got a question the choices around the people around you. It's like finding out of grownup. Has THEIR STEAK? Well done you. Don't really blame them. Blame the people around them for not having better influences on them so I this makes a lot of sense for when you were with Johnny Manziel Texas A. and M. Mike Evans doesn't make so much sense now that you're Tom Brady. Tom Brady had some innocent. Come on seventy or different man in a different circumstances got to involve my friend. I answered Greg Jennings so you think it's classic because it's it's when you don't know how to win and you haven't experienced something that Bit Class C. And better you go for what you know. And that's what he's doing here. I don't have a problem with. I think it's plastic. Because I think he will get introduced with some minor winds potentially or some finer drinks but for Mike Evans. He's excited and he has every right to be excited because what Tom Brady has provided him with the is in what he's done in his pass them and rightfully so so by Gavin. Enjoy your head man. I think it's historical because there's historical precedent Mike Evans optimism in the history of the League. There's only been two players in their first six years to have a thousand receiving yards. It's Randy Moss and Mike Evans about Mike Evans. I'm like Oh let's go. Tom Brady Randy Moss.

Mvp was released by the panthers yesterday. After nine seasons in Carolina camp passed his physical and was so he took the social media to say he's quote pre and hungry. Nick I know nobody can really bring him in right now for a physical to see for themselves. But are you surprised that that not traded for Cam Newton? I thought I was fired up about the Hennessy conversation. That's nothing compared to my utter dismay at what's going on in the NFL. In regards to Cam. Newton I understand that he right now. You can't bring him in touch him talk to him test out his foot. So trading a draft pick away for him is a risk but you know what also risks every draft pick that's ever been made and teams throwaway mid around draft picks on quarterback chances all the time in the last five years in the third round and Cam could have been had for fifth rounder in the third round teams have drafted will greer. Who couldn't find the field last year? Mason Rudolph who got replaced by the caller Davis Webb who despite the giants wanting move on from. Eli Repeatedly Gino Smith the call over him cody Kessler Garrett Grayson. That's the third around fourth and fifth round picks. It's even worse anyone familiar with eastern stick. He was a fifth rounder last year. What about Kyle letter? Another one of those giants mid round draft picks. How about Nathan Peterman or Car Dale Jones? Who just got benched in the xfl teams? Spend mid round picks on quarterback chances. All the time why there wasn't a team in the league willing to spend one of those picks to ensure they get Cam Newton who is not healthy. You cut them and breezy season and having locked in twenty million bucks for a one year trial all never understand it. It's beyond me. I had people call my radio. Show last night Greg Jennings and say it's about his post Amo tire. It is so illogical that I'm willing to wonder is it about his post-game attire because it can't be that the whole league is decided at thirty years. Old Cam Newton isn't worth amid round. Pick a flyer on deceiving. Go regain some of his. Mvp Form Greg Jennings. Well I agree with a good chunk of what you're saying. I would not have trade and I could understand why teams wouldn't have traded draft picks for Cam Newton when you kind of saw the writing on the wall. You saw that. The panthers were undecided about the future of Cam. Newton moving forward with him as their starting quarterback so you wait to see what they do and once they acquire Teddy Bridgewater and now obviously the kid from the XFL. You knew it was a matter of time. They're going to let him go. They'RE GOING TO RELEASE A. They're not going to put these guys on their roster in at the number that they just gave Teddy Bridgewater and keep Cam Newton so now I wait and I can pick him up and reassess that contract and see if it's something that we can tailor to our liking that better suits are financial dispersion across our team so I did. I don't take it hard or I don't think it's a shot at Cam Newton. I think it was just the situation in the circumstances however teams. That looking are looking for quarterbacks or BECA use his talents. The Denver Broncos the Miami Dolphins they should be chomping at the bit in my opinion to get a guy who's proven and who can also nurture a young guy if if they want to bring up a young guy behind them. Obviously the Miami Dolphins Have Josh. Rosen Cam Newton has success in this league. He's league. Mvp like he knows how to win. He just needs. The right. Coach system requires around him and he's going to bring that positive influence on that locker room wherever he ends up all right before we dive into where he does. End Up Wild. Why do you think everyone's out on Cam? You're a big CAM. Newton guy it can just be because of the uncertainty with with his injuries the shoulder of the foot all of it. Why is everyone on campus? I think everyone is confused. Because you've got a superstar. We don't know if he wants to be a backup or not so it's like can I bring him on my team or do I have to start a and I think this is a lesson for everybody. In America in times of confusion you can turn to. Sheryl Crowe Ensure Crow says everyday is a winding road. I get a little bit stronger So I think cam can go back and look at like Kurt Warner. Mvp Ninety nine and the two thousand one then all of a sudden a backup backup. Mark Bolger backs up ally backs up matt liner and then boom. I'm back in the Super Bowl so I think Cam's journey might be a little more unorthodox than we expected from superstar. Backup back to superstar ACA. I definitely don't see CAM AS ABACO I I. I also don't see him as a backup and to address. Both your points Greg. I understand what you're saying is very logical. Why would I trade? An asset for something that I know is going to be out in the marketplace. And the answer is very simply if I know Greg. You're selling one of your many fancy cars and tomorrow you're putting it at auction and anyone can get it and but you'd say to me today but nick all give it to you at this price. I might buy it right then and there because it guarantees me. I did it and I don't have to compete with other people for it and Cam Newton a one year. Nineteen twenty million dollars is nothing we live in a world where brock osweiler after this much. Good football got four years. Seventy two million dollars where JOE FLACCO. After five years of terrible football got three years. Sixty six million dollars. How many ways case keenum? But the same team that gave FLACCO IS MONEY. Denver broncos and come on down gaze. Nick falls has got four years. Eighty eight million. I I really do think the league the the League still holds against cam his bad body language from a few years ago the press conference after the Super Bowl in two thousand fifteen and the post game stuff because none of the rest of it makes sense and yes cam did handle losing that super bowl terribly. He handled far worse than you know. Philip Rivers handled losing his super bowl. Oh Wait Phil has never been super bowl. Thirty eight years old through twenty six and the culture like come on down one year. Twenty five million dollars. We'd love to have you. I don't know why cam is out in the wilderness when we have a paucity of competent quarterback in this League Jenna Wolfe Nick quickly. Where do you want to see him go you and you're convinced that he's got a ton left in a left approve? Where do you WANNA see him? I said the charges for Brady. They make just as much sense for Cam. The dolphins who Greg brought up I think also make a ton of sense. Yeah I like the dolphins obviously with the weapons that the chargers have that would be great landing spot for Cam Newton in if he can get there if they would acquire them. I think that would be good for them I. He won't throw as many interceptions as as a former quarterback Philip rivers. So I like it man. He's and he's your big with. You is thirty years old for more bed. You GotTa get Cam. Have you ever muscle pain on talking? Stop you in. Your tracks will never work out again. What am I going to do kind of pain? This is the kind of pain. Dr. Jason Wars Land was in when he created thera gun the deep muscle massage. That's unlike anything you've ever felt there are gone isn't cheap massage. That just tickles.

Brady he was introduced as the newest books quarterback yesterday and when Brady was asked about his former employer he took the high road saying I think Mr Craft has been a great influence in my life and I am so grateful for two decades Nixon Patriots fans be rooting for Brady in a box uniform in other words are they patriots. Fans are. They've rainy fans. Both of those are such fascinating questions. Let me deal with the first one. I I things for about that. I should they be I. I don't know will they be? I think absolutely I am Patriot. Fans are tied to the hip at the moment with Tom. Brady yesterday I said on this show. Brady is more likely to be the worst quarterback in the NFC south in the best quarterback in the NFC. South. I think that's a pretty obvious statement. I don't think most people disagree with it. My replies in response is on twitter which admittedly an unfair sample. We're not a lot of angry bucks fan. They were a lot of angry new Englanders. They were a lot of people with Celtic avatars and Red Sox avatars and still TB twelve in their avatar Patriot fans that don't realize he's not yours anymore. He is now a different he is now a bucks vanish problem or bucks fans pleasure depending on how you look at it now to your second question. John and this will kick to Wilde's which is are they brady fancher Patriot. Fans this is what occurred to me. I'm thirty five years old. Anyone of few years younger than me if you're thirty years old or younger your entire sports fan life if you're a Patriot fan. You've no nothing but winning and nothing but Tom Brady. It is the most spoiled group of sports fans ever football fans that are under thirty from New England. It's it's unbelievable. I I would imagine it is the only thing comparable do it is basketball. Fans in New England who grew up during Russell's time. It's all but Russell only played thirteen years Brady played twenty with New England so wild. You're obviously not under thirty but for the entirety of your adult life. It's been Tom Brady. And the Patriots. So I don't think you'll ever get over it and I don't think you'll ever divorce yourself from him. Even though he divorced himself from you Kevin Wilde's yeah okay. Let's relax with divorce talk. It's more of just like a nice separation remember. He only signed a two year. Deal with a no trade clause so maybe coming back neck. Pardon me I swear to God. Part of me is holding out that he comes back and like signs like a one day. Contractor comes in at the end. I actually crossed my mind when I saw that. He had a no trade clause any converge. All right so I think the other emotional part of this is no one realizes unless you live in New England like how bad we were for the history of the franchise and then the whole thing flipped and it was because of Tom. Brady and Bill Belichick. And that's why I'm still holding on so tightly to bill belichick. If they both left it would be an absolute absolute disaster. But the fact that this was the franchise changing player like of course. I'm going to root for. I want them to do. Well Greg. Let me ask you a question so you were in Green Bay. When Brett farve left Aaron Rodgers was the heir apparent and if I if I remember correctly Air Madras proved to be the right choice. At the time you saw that transition take place. Fans were still rooting for farther. Even when he left he was such an iconic force in Green Bay. What happens now in New England are fans get? What happens to stick them? Who's got those big shoes to fill? Do you see the same thing. That fans will follow their quarterback out or are they more fans of the team. I think in terms of the Brett farve Aaron Rodgers situation. It was slightly different You drafted Aaron Rodgers. And he sat behind Brett only for a couple years and then took over. And I think the break-up was a little different With Brett and so with that same in New England you're GONNA have fans that are gonNA pick sides. It's it's like a relationship friends that are tied to a couple's relationship they're they're forced to pick sides. You're either going to be with the woman or you're GONNA go pick sides but the guy and that's the same with fans there either GonNa pick sides and be with the Whitland or they're gonNA decide. I'm a brady fan wherever brady goes. I'm going and that's kind of what happened with Brett Farr. You wanted him to stick it back to Mike McCarthy Ted Thompson Mike Murphy Mark Murphy shoes you wanted him to stick it back because you felt like they treated Brett wrong. They treated me wrong. They're not loyal to Brad. They're not loyal to us. That's how fans grow tied to players and organizations and it's it's at their own discretion they have they have every right to however they feel if they want to root for Brady as a buck Roofer Brady as buck but six point is not yours. He's never quite been yours. He's been on borrowed time this entire time. And you've been beneficial of what he's providing you he might be. Kevin Wild just like Lebron. Might Be Nick but nick. I'm curious to know what your thoughts are on. What Greg Cats Assay do? I think greg put it perfectly. I don't mean disregard the question but if I may I'd really rather address wall dead to say because Wilde's listen. I'm not a you might not be a child of divorce. I am a child of divorce. You are clearly still believing. But I think they're going to get back together. I went through that phase in real life. My parents I was like they'll get back together. One day a ever happened man. You'RE HOLDING OUT HOPE WAIT. Brady wants to play delays forty five. There's only two years on his deal. Maybe in three years he comes back. He ain't coming back Bro and were you and for Patriot fans. Here's the deal. Here's split between mom and Dad. My question is who get you on the weekends? My question is who actually are with on Sundays. Are you with? Are you win Tom or you with the Patriots because this year you don't have to play each other but in two years. Assuming Tom makes it to two years. You will be playing Tom. Brady in Gillette. You said yesterday there's going to be those. Tickets are going to be ten thousand dollars. You got plenty of money or television star. Now you'll be there who you're rooting for. I'm just asking you while four weeks ago when Brady plays the Patriots. Who are you rooting for? Okay so I I will be rude. You can from both you root for a good game but you want the Patriots to win but Tom Brady. At one of those like five touchdown game and I came up with some horrible meth. I also need to bring my kids to that game. So there's GonNa be. I got two kids to thirty grand so I have to like. I don't know what I meant to sell sell are all of my possessions. All of these books. I'm just curious nick. Who would you be rooting for? Oh we listen you brought up the Lebron thing. Here's the thing. I was never abandoned the cavs. I've never been to the heat I wasn't. I'm not a fan of the Lakers fan lebrun. I've been unabashed about this. I go where Lebron goes as far as my basketball fandom because I'm from Kansas City we didn't have a team in different if you're from a city that's got an team so I'm allowed to be a sports. Free Agent Wiles is supposed to be with the Patriots liver dive. We'll see if that turns out. Jena we gotta go have a great day. Everyone say back here tomorrow.

Ten am pacific one pm eastern colin right colin wrong. Plenty of both. It is great to have you in joy on another Eventful voyage around north america. This weekend she is back after a trip in vegas. I'm sure did you gamble at all. I i didn't give them a lot. But i did not win. So great. great food shitty. Yup we went to Sdk which is always great very consistence. Chicago's mo you ever been to the catch to catch. Yes okay. i haven't been to catch in vegas. I've been catching. La though i love yes is very restaurant upon all right. Let's start with this. There's been this feeling in the nba with a lot of fans. And it's a real thing that the only way to get a dynasty in this league or even when a championship is to attract superstars to your glamorous city. Miami's done it. Multiple times lakers have done it multiple times and leaves a lot of people in the nba. Feeling left out. Well the dallas mavericks and that's big city to and it's got some glamour. But they did it another way. They drafted dirk nowitzki from overseas developed. Him and then eventually surrounded him for one year with all the right pieces and they wanna title proving. You can do it that way too. But that felt like sort of a one off right. And then there's milwaukee and they're doing it the dallas way to find jaanus be patient loyal develop get the right coach and add some pieces. Bb plus pieces. That anybody could get you know. Portland could get a pj. Tucker memphis could get a drew holiday. Bobby portis the difference with milwaukee though is is this the new dynasty and i know it sounds crazy but to be a dynasty. You have to get to the finals every year. Look at the east this morning. Boston feels like they're in a rebuild. Ride philadelphia you saw the stories last week. They're breaking up the band. Simmons and embiid will be no longer miami lightning in a bottle last year. Not really close here. You have jaanus a defensive player of the year a two-time mvp and probably finals mvp by tomorrow night. And that's just entering the last three years into the data bank and unlike old lebron janas is not brand obsessed like old brittle k. d. he's not a wander nor is he bothered by social media or media criticism unlike increasingly old and increasingly brittle kyri. He's not strange young and healthy honest. Let's play word association. Humble great full healthy loyal focused is this new dynasty. Is this the new face of the leak. It would be a very different kind of superstar. Not brand obsessed not a wander healthy. Every night discourages ego. By the way you can do it both ways and i watch both ways been watching the nba for forty years. I love my sonics. Back in the seventies they were more light milwaukee and i love the heels i love the warriors the brooklyn nets. Give us lots of content. But the milwaukee wave for most of. This league is more relatable. Most cities aren't cool. Most fans aren't either and they know it. Say what you will about. Lebron james but the nba has lost over fifty percent of its ratings. I'm not one of them. But many of you are over the last three years fifty percent and in fact when you dig deeper into the data it indicates that local. tv ratings are very strong in markets where teams draft and develop the players. There's a sense we're all in this together. We'll support you jaanus when you're not great we're with you jaanus when you are. Were with you jaanus when you disappointed as the last two years and we celebrate together. By tomorrow night lakers ratings would lebron ad brooklyn's with katie harden. And kyrie were in the dumper. Look it up. The jazz weren't bucks. Weren't the spurs weren't the warriors weren't maybe. Honest is exactly what league needs. Maybe milwaukee is what the league needs. And i am not anti mobility. You've listened to me for years many of you. I am pro mobility in my own life. I celebrate lebron going to miami back to cleveland and la but for a lot of fans. There's a disconnect not talking about brand not mentally a wander. A little more loyal discourages ego. Janas had an interesting quote. This past weekend and i felt that it it resonated with a lot of fans i figured i'd like a mindset to have that like when you focus on the past that your ego i did this. We're to be this team photo. Really did i did this. In the past i want that in the past folks in the future is my pride like yeah next game five. I do this this this in long-dominant. That's your prioritize like it doesn't happen like you're right here and I kind of like the folks in the in the moment the president in that's humility that's been humbled that could work to. Maybe that's time to run the leak. Maybe this face and this personality grateful and humble. There's room for that too interesting stuff. I want to shift two free. Throws i picked phoenix to win the series and one of the reasons i picked phoenix to win the series free throws. I said i think these two teams are going to be in close games. Phoenix is one of the best free. Throw shooting teams in the league in milwaukee. Jaanus can't hit him. And that was one of the things i said last week like these games are going to be four and five point games. I mean even the other night. We felt milwaukee kind of dominated. Look at the final score. Four or five point games tomorrow night. Four five points spread or closed games. So i said phoenix free. Throws milwaukee star janas can and then nick right you know him. Nick right said something yesterday to me last night in the podcast it was one of those. Nick said free throws are overrated. What come on that outrageous. You should be suspended for that. I think he's right. The lakers dynasty was built on shack. He couldn't hit free. Throws the spurs dynasty was built on duncan nor could he lebron's number one liability the last fifteen years the free throw line. Sometimes he dreads. It and jaanus looks like he'll be the finals. Mvp dominating bigs get to the free throw line so often increasingly in a very finesse league. That is officiency. the most important thing is it. Okay for us to go. Ten for twenty if de'andre eight and only going six for six janas has sixty six free throws in this series. He's made thirty. Nine second is devon booker with twenty nine de'andre third with seventeen. Yes chris paul's and unbelievable free throw shooter but the sun's rely on jump shots and don't get the line. They didn't all season and chris. Paul is worn out by the physicality of drew holiday. He's not getting there either. The is so physical in so aggressive that he initiate so much contact he just gets to the free throw line so often so that if he shoots fifty eight percent he's still hitting twelve to thirteen tonight at a twenty three it trump's everybody else's five or six and six for seven. Nobody thinks mcdonald's has the best burgers but they make the most money on volume. It's the walmart the target the costco strategy. We sell everything by it from your bananas to your blouses to your shoes to your ax to your detergent. We sell everything they don't maybe have your favorite detergent. It's not that perfect kayak perfect para socks. But you can go there and you get everything. Everything about analytics is efficiency. See that's what analytics are in baseball and football a smarter way to do things. That's what technology largely is. We can do everything in our phone. Now don't always have to get new our car. We can door dash and comes our house. It's just easier and more efficient. And i don't have to go to the store and i'm for efficiency to but sometimes it just gets trumped by volume bigger stronger. More sometimes trump's efficiency milwaukee's a bigger older stronger team. Janas is simply longer stronger and more aggressive. And he doesn't shoot eighty percent of the free throw line but he has lived there through the finals and that has trumped his efficiency. They should win this title. And i believe they will tomorrow night props to nick right. Who blew my mind with that. Also what's really interesting is. And i and i one of the things i like about. The conclusion to a season is that we are myself included. Sort of Prisoners of the moment. You know every game feels like this is the way the series will be. But i went back. And i looked at every series with phoenix and milwaukee and this is really becoming. What the previous six series for these two teams were. Maybe we shouldn't have been. I shouldn't have been surprised. One hour from now calling right colin wrong be short to catch live editions of the heard.

America's number one meal kit when a season comes to its conclusion. You look back and think. Oh i should have seen. It should've seen it coming. So i've liked Bizarrely joyous my witness. I picked milwaukee to win it all the two reasons i picked milwaukee to win all months ago was we've dismissed them. There'll be no pressure. I believe that and there are players. Look at their roster. Don't get hurt in a condensed season. Everybody was falling apart so this morning i could say told you so but i did pick phoenix to win this series. And it's really interesting. As i watched this come to a conclusion and i do think milwaukee wins convincingly tomorrow night. I think they're just leaning on phoenix and phoenix is a small basketball team. That looks tired and shot but go back to every son series. They went on the lakers. One oh they went up on denver four zero. They swept him. They went up on the clippers to oh and they went up on the bucks to interesting for series. Look at the last three series for the bucks. They fell behind brooklyn. Oh two they fell behind member trae young big night. Oh one to atlanta. They fell behind to phoenix. Oh two and it looks like they're gonna win all them now. Why would that be well. Phoenix very young very atlantic. Very uptempo very fast jumps on you. It takes a game to sorta recalibrate. They also tend to play at home. They played at home and all those games. They're great at home and they came into every series the more rested team in a condensed season. That matters how about the bucks. Well the bucks or an old team. They're a veteran team. There are team built on size and power and strength. It doesn't blow you away. But over the course of a series atlanta brooklyn the sun's. We've seen the same thing same thing he just dominate you on the glass. They beat you up physically and when you look at this series chris. Paul looks every day of thirty six years. Old de'andre eytan is just exhausted. He feels like he's on an island fighting off all their bigs. Brook lopez and bobby portis in janas and damage booker. Just trying to save everybody and trying to score forty five at night. Are the sons essentially the miami heat of last year. One star jimmy butler. Chris paul surrounded by a bunch of really talented young guys playing with a ton of a ton of energy. They jump on leads with teams uptempo. Lot of jumpers rely on them in the end. The lakers who had size lebron and dwight howard vail mcgee and anthony davis lean on the kids. The adults lean on the kids and wear them out. Because that's what i'm seeing now what we know about the nba. The grownups beat the kids even when the kids take a series lead even when the kids are really talented. I mean you go look right now. At the size of milwaukee they are per player two inches taller and twenty five pounds heavier player on average. That's what the lakers were last year against miami by the way the previous year toronto surge. A botka mark eaton pascal. Say aw come colli leonard. Big physical mark ghazal. Big powerful physical teams. Don't necessarily shoot the three great leaning on l. finals opponent. Over the course of four games in five games in six games. The adults the bigger stronger older adults where out the kids. Mark disol- has kelsey arkham surge. Baca coalisland they did it to the nba. Three ago in toronto lakers did it last year bucks or doing it this year. Joy taylor with news heard on the news. This is the headline news. It's almost as if history. Well you know it's funny so janas came into this league really skinny. I mean you go back and look at youtube videos early on very young he is now whereas katie body. Katie's body is the same as it was five years ago. You look at yoenis body. He is so ripped. I mean de'andre a big man that's six eleven to sixty he's crew tunnel in the salad bowl of janas life. He is tossing him all over. The floor is so strong and everything he does. He leans in so phoenix as downhill. He plays downhill he plays. He plays a little like lebron when lebron was relying a lot on his physicality initiates contract a contract every time. Down the floor. Yeah so a report service. Last week the damian lillard was planning to request a trade from the blazers he then was speaking to the media l. Later that day. This happened on friday. Predictably he did not confirm the was requested. Trade has team. Usa heads into the olympics. But he did speak on it and he acknowledged team needs to make some changes to be contenders number. One is is not true. Secondly i'll also stated. I i haven't made any firm decision on you know what my future will be. We've reached that point where it's like okay but it's not enough the actually want to win it off to you know. Is that what we're shooting for. And we gotta do things to to show that you know we gotta you know put action behind that so i mean we're talking about the bucks. Obviously who have built things the right way right now. They did make some changes this off season two guys that have contributed mightily throughout the playoffs. Which are pj tucker and drew holiday and Who are who are stars in own right. they're not gonna circadian or dame but they are thought was has been the difference maker truly for this team. So you know the ba- the bucks bill right way similar to how portland has built it but what is the thing that's going to take you over the edge. What are the changes that you need to make to get yourself into the nba finals and win a championship and putting the right pieces around aimar important. I don't necessarily know. They need a third star well to me. They're bigs are good enough and dame's great for the last three years they've had a player named cj mccollum who is at twenty three point. Game guy portland. I people think i'm out of my mind. I i would call the clippers. I think i think dame. And i i just seems to me either. Blow it up and start over. Call golden state and take their lottery picks you can go to philadelphia and get all their length. And ben simmons in denial. Or you can go to the clippers and try to make a deal for paul george. I don't think the clippers are taking that call right now because leonard is out for till the all star isn't acl acl surgery. That takes a long time to come back. I don't i portland to me is in quicksand. What can they do if they keep doing. What can they do to become a championship team. I don't see the path. I don't see the players i don't either and dame is very aware of what his future needs to be if he wants to. Some adams cement himself on the next level as with a championship. obviously he has everything else. Easy as the respect. He has the numbers. He has the money. But that part of your legacy is important. If you're a player as good as damian lillard now he was very noncommittal either way he did deny it in this case which of course he's going to do not saying that he that he is lying. Obviously i don't think he has made a decision yet. I think he's focusing on the olympics and he wasn't going to take away all of the shine from team. Usa by talking about the tr trade. Nor does he want to deal with that right now like. He's playing in the olympics. There's no need to do it right now. But i'm with you. I don't know what you can do. They've made the playoffs for the last eight seasons and they've been eliminating the first round four of the last five years. Nba quicksand terrible. You get lottery. Picks you find you find great player or you're really good in a championship team. The the worst place to be in his drafting thirteen to sixteen to eighteen in portland. Always in that space where. They're good not terrible not great and i don't know what if you look at that roster you can trade cj mccullough now by the way maybe it's philadelphia. You get ben simmons and gimme gimme somebody who can shoot. And maybe that's it dame. Ben simmons And another piece from philadelphia. But i think philadelphia wants more than cj mccollum. Although i would add embiid. Cj mccollum tobias harris seth curry. That's a that could win the east. I mean but can you win a championship. I'm not sure that's what name is trying to do. So kevin durant doesn't shy away from criticism on social media on friday. He joined a chat on twitter spaces and the conversation turned to his time with the warriors and he pushed back at the notion that he is jealous of his of the love. His teammates scott when he was with the warriors he said. Show me any indication of me ever being pissed off about not getting a love in the arena ever. Have you ever seen that for me. Or did you hear that through a bunch of narratives being created like. I hate my teammates. I'm jealous. I saw my jersey all around that arena. Everywhere i went in the bay area. People showed me love. I never talked about that. So where did that come from. He also pointed to ethan schultz's book as one of the reasons that the narrative exists and he is frustrated. That fans believe strauss over him. Well anytime you leave a great family. There's going to be questions about. Why did you leave a great family. So when you leave steph curry and klay thompson and dream on steve kerr. The obvious question is why. Why would you do that so i don't. This is one of these. Where i don't have a problem with what katie saying but i think i don't think even strauss who i know well is writing a book on just rumors and he's getting sourced i've been told by people close to the warriors that i trust that there was a lot of yada dance around. Remember that during the parade. There was that quote from bob myers. He took the microphone and we all went all unfortunate quote. it was. Yeah but by the way. It wouldn't be if i mean if you did that and joked about de'andre in phoenix. Everybody knows he's going to be there. Forever katie is not the andre and that's suspects de'andre but katie is another level. Right you have to treat guys like that. Who by the way came to your team and helped you in do championships You gotta treat them. a little. Differently can make jokes and you have to know who you can joke. We all know people. You don't joke with right. And that's that's the spine like that's how they are wired. Run some people you can joke with. And that's fine. I think for k. d. l. I don't know can you personally but if you're talking about why do people think it's strange that you left steph. From the warriors and that not dynasty katie. Apparently like if you look at his career he doesn't he likes change. Likes new challenges and brooklyn is a new challenge. You can't say that. He went there to get away from the super team narrative because now. So it's like it's a. It's a new super team. So i think he just likes new challenges. I don't think he has a. He had a problem with them. Getting love he the one of those championships because he was there like the foundation. Was there obviously. But he put them over the edge to win those championships. So we're one week away for finding out. If aaron rodgers gonna schober training camp training campus week away not crazy. Great so tight. End mercedes lewis furnace. Joe is optimistic about his quarterback. Being there he said. I hope so i hope. See my guy there i think so so see but that's where we are. Yes yeah that was a very accurate assessment of what. What's going on with aaron rodgers right now if he skips training camp which. I don't anticipate he's going to do. Because why if you're gonna play this year. Why would you get the packers. Half define him if he misses. It's not so he will lose two million dollars a little over two million dollars if he's training camp but i don't know what the value to the team is of him not being there like if he's going to play this year you might as well try and win and have to be there. I think he's going to be at training camp. But i'll be honest with you. I people. I follow twitter enough to see what the people are saying. And i think that's valuable for us. What are the people saying. And people are saying this. Aaron rodgers story. It's a lot about nothing he's the. Mvp the league. He has according to peter kings. And the adam schefter is not happy. He resents the packers and apparently they resent him. It's not nothing here now. I think he's going to return like you but in a week. What if he doesn't you can't tell me this is not a story. It's a gigantic store. When when we have less we are not calling the ones making this up. We're talking about this because other people multiple people lots of people are talking about. It is obviously a thing. If steph curry the equivalent of aaron rodgers popular huge iconic and we thought he would not he was struggling with the warriors front office an ownership and may not return. We would spend every show on it so the idea. This isn't a story. It aaron rodgers. It's the packers. He's a quarterback in the national football league and even if he does show up a training camp. I still think it's a story. Because i believe this is just him at this point setting the groundwork for not being there next year so whether he's at training camp or not doesn't mean that this is all still very balanced situation joy news. Well that's the news. And thanks for stopping by heard. Lie chris broussard. This finals has surprised me. But it looks like phoenix. Looks fatigued and small. And chris. Broussard brought bees benz the best or nothing joining us. Now you know it's funny. Christopher longtime the nba sometimes medium markets and smaller markets. Feel like you gotta have a glamorous city. Gotta be miami in the lakers. And that's worth stars play and then you've got the milwaukee thing where they were patient. They developed him. They added reasonable pieces pieces. Anybody could get drew holiday. A- bobby portis these aren't glamour players. And then i watched them when i look at the east and i say to myself is this. The next dynasty homegrown humble. By the way i like all the heels. I like all the lakers. I like the eagles. I like all the wandering. I like all the mobility. You start looking at the east. Chris you start looking around this league if they win that tomorrow night. It doesn't necessarily feel like a one and done. Does it now. it certainly does now. They wouldn't be guaranteed to win the ease. It wouldn't be like the bulls with michael jordan. Three peat lakers or even the heaters as you mentioned who we knew. Were clearly the best team in the east year after year because brooklyn the only question with brooklyn is will. They be healthy. Kyri where his mind. That's it. I think most people. You put the two team side-by-side are going to pick brooklyn. So there's that we'll see what happens in philadelphia. But i think brooklyn and milwaukee will be the two teams in the east fighting it out. Here's what i do like about the bucks and why they do have a chance to continue to win. Going forward jaanus in my view. Colin is improving before our very eyes are. We're no longer think about it. We're not focused anymore on. He can't shoot. he's he's missing all these threes. He's missing all these mid range jump shots because he's playing inside more not eat up post enough but he is doing his damage in the paint. More than ever and winnie's on the perimeter. He's making the right decisions like he's making. He's making some great passes to his teammates whether it's for layups underneath the basket or three pointers in the corner. Whatever it may be. And i think drew holiday and chris middleton. He's leaving the perimeter scoring to them so of yanni's continues to play this way and then overturned continues to improve his jump. Shot vacant can be very tough. You know in the future. So there's a chance there that they could continue to win championships. They win this one. It's really interesting. When michael jordan dominated the league there were just physically things. Michael could do. There were shots. He made that are still iconic. When lebron dominated the league when shack dominated the league again there was a physical dimension. Nobody else could do. You remember lebron's for six or seven years. Now he was chasing guys down and guards and blocking shots in the last two games. Jaanus has made plays chris. I'm not sure another player in the league could do that. Block of de'andre eight. And i can't think of and i don't think embiid is that quick and i also think that alleyoop is running down and beating guards down the floor. Is that when you look at janos development. Nick right said it. He said you know free throws her kinda overrated with the dunkin's and the shacks and lebron's when you can physically do stuff others can't is y- honest the face of the league if he wins this title well colin. He is certainly helping himself. His press conferences isn't it. Yeah i mean what he's saying is great. I mean he. You can't help but like the guy you know. And then he's got the mental toughness. That i think people are drawn to. I mean the fact that he'll go to the free throw line and shooting airball or two and then the next way. He's driving trying to get to the foul on people. React to that the fact that you know a year ago or even entering these playoffs we were down on him. Oh he can't get it done in the playoffs. He's overcome that. So there's there's a human element that you just love about janas and obviously the nickname. The freak is appropriate because we have not seen anything like this. He's a seven footer. Who doesn't post up like shack but can't shoot like kevin durant or dirk nowitzki. So what is. He's just an incredible athlete. Who can pass the ball. Who can handle the ball and he does all these things around the rim. That are incredible. I believe this. Colin as great as john is is he's probably only seventy five percent of what could be. Yeah because when. I put his work ethic and mental toughness. Together i say like what if he becomes an adequate mid range shooter. And i don't mean. I don't necessarily want him like he used to be. He's handling the ball up to top of the key and bringing the ball up but what if when he gets it on the wing eighteen feet out. He's gonna hit most of the time and he can shoot a three adequately like he will be unguardable. So i said years ago and it felt i want to i say years ago. He's there's a few guys that you can see and you say they could be in the goal conversation. I think they will be the goat or whatever but you can see the potential there. Yeah there's the put since. I'm not saying they will ever be that. But the potential is there for him to be in the conversation if he can keep win. You know it's really fun you know i. It's when i watch him play. It's interesting chris. I think. I talked about this last week. There's there's a little bit of footage of lew alcindor at ucla as a freshman and if you go back to lou cinder in high school in new york or ucla early. He ran the floor very well. People may have forgotten. Sam buoy at seven four actually ran the floor. Pretty darn well. And there's part of yana says game. Where and i'm not saying. He's going to be kareem. Abdul-jabbar i'm not saying that. But there is a physical component to kareem. He had the most unstoppable shot in league history and he was all. Nba defense must have been twelve. Thirteen times ironically started his career in milwaukee and there is when i watch him running the break and when i watch him down low i mean i remember as a kid kareem was just. There was no anecdote. There really wasn't kareem was in the honor roll. He got you thirty six. And i i may be crazy. We always compared lebron michael even though michael was more. Kobe and lebron was more magic. If i said to you gimme me three players. Who were y- honest. The first one that pops into my head is a young luau. cinder kareem abdul-jabbar. If i said three guys with janas who is he who do you see well. Let me say this there were guys. I mean wilt chamberlain was attract star. He could run the floor shack. You remember earliest kind of jokingly. But he could do it. Dribble the ball up court against the break making nights passed but back then it wasn't big men automatically played inside. Remember ralph sampson. Who wanted to shoot jumpers elbow. Your said always saw him get inside and bang big seller like and so marine told me a couple of years ago if he were playing the day coming up as a player he said he would play like janas and i believe he would because as you say karim had that athletic yoyo those skills there's video footage remember. He played dr j. One on one and korean was he beat dr j. pretty badly because he actually had athleticism and skills to go with his length so i actually think that is a fair comparison. Kareem just at that time you weren't afforded the opportunity as a big to play on the perimeter and do all of those things. But i think it's a very appropriate comparison and this is kind of like the next version of kareem. You look korean. Won six and he's got janas has to keep winning. But here's an interesting thing. Colin and this is a lot of people. Criticizing your honest and saying oh. Chris middleton really the batman and yannis doesn't close well kareem really wasn't the closer i mean. I know you could always go for that sky. Hook right and they did it in one thousand nine hundred eighty when they beat detroit right but kareem needed a hard to get him the ball you know. He needed oscar or needed magic. That's when he wanted championships so john. This is not that different in that he does need another guy. When you're a seven footer. And you don't shoot it that well you're gonna need somebody else. Shot needed. Wait or koby you're going to need. Somebody else is not unique in that year. He needs a great perimeter. Player to play along with. Great stuff. Chris broussard foxsports. Nba analysts. nice job. You ever noticed. Chris is the best dressed guy in our network. It doesn't even matter during season off season. He's a million bucks. Somebody get his taylor. Good see anybody. Wow thank you my man. Thank you you bet. Christmas start love him. All right top of the hour. Colin right calling wrong be sure to catch. Live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern nine. Am pacific. i'm doug out. The podcast is called all ball. We usually talk all basketball all the time. But it's more about the stories about what made these people love their sports and all the interesting interactions. Along the way we talked to coaches. We talked to players. We tell you stories you download it. Listen to it. I think you'll like it. Listen to all ball with doug ali on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcast pretzels. Look what chips. Who's the new guy they had. I think he's looking at me Pretzels you got it twisted. He's looking at me. Stop being salty chips. We both got a chance. Ladies you back at you handsome fanta picked beef jerky girl gonna be here awhile. Fanta the perfect partner to snacking fanta. It's a thing. Hi i'm ethan. Edelman hosted a new podcast psychoactive. I founded the drug policy alliance which has been at the forefront of the effort to legalize marijuana and end the broader war on drugs. But what's next. What's the future of drugs and psychoactive. I'll be talking scientists and politicians celebrities and activists about all things drugs why do we have receptors in their brain. That fit molecules made by poppy plants. You know. I think ecstasy saved my marriage drugs or something. I recommend to long-term couples. We had to adopt this idea that there's this disease called alcoholism no matter how many drugs this particular person was selling. You shouldn't be able to kick someone's door down. And then murdered them. Cycle activists out. Now listen to psychoactive on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Whoever you get your podcasts so fans tend to oas complain about officiating especially in basketball sons fans like we can get the whistle of the sons. Didn't the whistle all year because they're a finesse team. That relies on jump shots. They don't initiate a lot of contact. The sons are very good at shooting free throws but they didn't get to the free throw line all year long. They were like twenty fifth or twenty eight or something and free throw attempts. Milwaukee is big and physical. They get to the free throw line. They don't always make them but they initiate more contact. Janas game is leaning into you around the basket initiating contact but i understand why fans do complain about it because so many of these championships in these sports feel arbitrary. And you know it's random calls. It could go either way college. Football's the only sport right now. We're fans don't do a lot of complaining about officials in the biggest game because alabama just looks better than everybody and no reasonable person can watch alabama play ninety five percent of their opponents. And not see. They're bigger stronger faster with better coaching that. All the other teams. What's there to argue about alabama's not dominating the sport for a decade because the officials are all from tuscaloosa. It's there's not a lot to argue with them occasionally by the end of the year. They'll face a clemson that can knock him off and even clemson asked to play great and beats him in the last second so when you watch the bucks and the sons. It's very typical. Is that this. This series started. We thought it was all phoenix. I liked him in a lot of people did even when they lost game three. I thought yeah that that's what happens. The team trailing winds then game four. I'm like oh and then game five. It's like we got different series. This series has been two different series early all phoenix all milwaukee. I mean think about the kansas city chiefs dynasty. Talk join i would kinda roller is after. They won their first super bowl. It's like dynasty. i'm like whoa will like the patriots. Twenty years let's. Let's slow down on this thing. You have to pay mahomes so. Kansas city's favorite again this year and that's considered like the potential the greatest potential for a dynasty in the nfl. Is kansas city right. They got maybe the best coach. The best quarterback great owners know chaos in in division with the dysfunctional raiders. And the broncos don't have a quarterback and the charter israel was talented but they always crush our dreams and the last two super bowls kansas city. He's been in. they got blown out in one. I mean destroyed and the other one they trailed by ten in the fourth quarter and san francisco completes one pass over the top. They were this far away and their own two super bowls even tampa this year. Which looks fully loaded right the buccaneers. They're not favored to win. Kansas city is again. You go back to the nba. You think very rarely two team separate you think. Shaq and kobe separated but shack and kobe were dominant for one year. The first year that thing the blazers took him seven in the western conference finals. I was there and the blazers lead by fifteen in the fourth in la at the staple center. I was there okay. And then the warriors dynasty. Yeah it was easy in year one the next year. They trailed three to houston until chris. Paul got hurt. You go to the heels four years. They won two one of them on a rail. Jumper at the buzzer the easier. They trailed the celtics three two in the eastern conference finals. I understand why fans blame ralph's. These championships are inches. Not feet apart. Have you been to express lately. People can't get enough of their closed. They'll like instant offense boosters. The genes coming temp control fabric. That keeps you comfortable no matter the weather in the t shirts hands down. They'll feel like they're made of the softest fabrics you've ever worn and get this.

Building out the DEX Frontier with Radar CEO Alan Curtis

"All right everyone. Welcome back this Ryan Lucas. And you're listening to him. Saris unqualified opinions. Where each week I interview crypto top builders investors and personalities discuss? That's the key trends in the industry can discover more about Massari. I'm sorry dot. Io but for now. Let's get right into the episode. It's going to be a good one. This podcast podcasts is presented by block works group on the top block chain of events and media production companies. I've worked with for exclusive content events. That could help you with insight into the Crypto uh-huh blockchain space check them out at WLAC DOT ISO and you will not be disappointed all right everyone. Welcome back to Missouri's unqualified opinion. Opinions on Ryan's Belkis to idiot's got another terrific interview today while we don't know that yet because we haven't done it but I'm just GonNa Project in the future This conversation with Alan Curtis from radar is going to be something you can watch us into on I tunes spotify. Or maybe you're watching it live on twitter right now Alan couple years. He was a pioneer as a realtor in the decentralize exchange face and and obviously that sector of Crypto. I would say argue went through its peak of inflated expectations and this this was a year in twenty nineteen where things kind of crash down to earth and some of the structural challenges of running DAX really keen. Belated Laden became very office is kind of a double whammy of the market just cooling often volumes Getting a lower just in general And then you multiply that by the fact that DEX was already verbally small Cardis of that overall market. So we'll talk about some of the structural challenges to two decks general which we haven't heard nearly as much about In the last eighteen months. But it's still very structurally important and then we're talking about radar and in some of the full stack that solutions. They're building kind of how they think about the industry more generally but but in particular market making and things like that in addition it may be other things that might WanNa cover as he has done a bit of a man of mystery last year which we were just talking about off camera Want we when we start with your back story is as I like to do with with all these conversations. Just how you got into Crypto And then you know radar in particular how you came to form an opinion on on that being killer market you wanted to get into and then of course we can walk due to the to the project and the resurgence for that sector in general but but certainly for for some of the things you are doing this fall. Yeah Yeah happy to be here Ryan. Thanks so much for the invite. I'll start with the origin story as you put it. I've actually not really shared origin story before loosely in a few tweets. It's and and articles here and there but it began in a winding way. I think much like many folks in our industry is very orthogonal and For me it was. It began with some graduate thesis work. I was doing the intersection of economic security financial inclusivity and the health outcomes. I heard of Bitcoin but unfortunately did not fall down the rabbit hole into not out of school. Well I was the program director at an incubator here in Colorado help companies build their team raise money market. I did that for many years. And during that time I met Caleb Caleb who's now my co-founder in studio but at the time Caleb was the very first data science higher at coin base and and thankfully for Caleb. He pulled me down that all in early. Two thousand seventeen actually and we spent most of two thousand seventeen in my basement with a few other guys white boarding furiously about. What would it look like to build a company in this space one of the hard problems that That that need to be solved and to your point around decks wchs and the the frontier or roller coaster. Ride that it's been. I think I think this is a good opportunity to talk about radars vision in radars radars strategy. And if you go to our website and maybe you've met me before and I've walked us through it. It's not clear if you're just a user surrealist right if you're just a user of relay you assume that we are a decentralized exchange And that is what we do. When in reality Raiders Multi Product Company? Always has been always will be and and the vision for us the North Star the the. Why wikileaks Bill Product together is is idea of building products for our our next financial system now building products. That's pretty straightforward. And we're GONNA talk about that today but it's the our next financial system that I think is a head scratcher for some folks so when I they say our I don't mean radar our ownership are I mean the collective our and when I talk about our next financial system. I don't know exactly how how it's GonNa feel and look like and how it's GonNa Taste now. It's going to work but would I do know you know a few things but I do know is if it's going to be a hell of a lot more fair to be more transparent its parent you want more inclusive. And it's going to take some time allotted time and we believe that blockchain's the right tool for the job. It's the right database the base to build this new financial system on top of but the reality is. It's a little bit of a frontier right now and this is where our strategy comes in and this is what we talk about about throughout the call strategy right is to. It's not just endure. The frontier truly thrive on the. I think there are three ways to do that. And this is lines up with our product strategy the first way from Wild West Frontier Perspectives. You go all the way out West and you build a destination. These are things like general stores or saloons right and this is what we did. Miss What we've done. With two of our products rate one of those destinations is really just the peer to peer exchange. Exchange that we've built on top of zero x on the theory and Blockchain we launched that in two thousand seventeen and like Ryan mentioned. We had this incredible run and in the market started to to go. South is our category. Compressed relay today owns large part of the market the second destination of the the second shingle. That we hung is redshift. redshift is a is a happier peer payments tool payments for rail on the Bitcoin blockchain auction using the lightning network. Again another destination and the reality is that a lot of these destinations in the wild wild West Frontier. They don't get a lot of foot traffic. Nick Right. You got. It's crazy other cowboys. That WANNA come and kick the tires and and visit the general store and Saloon. It's it's really difficult to build and a thriving Ryan business with just destinations frontier. And so you must do the second thing. The second thing is infrastructure we just announced a product called deploy. Then I'm excited to talk to you about on interview today. The infrastructure piece right and this is how you get the complacent happy people on the East Coast to get on the wagons. Get on the trains and actually make their way out. West and the Agan Wheels train tracks shovels and then the third way and maybe the most important way to build a business that's on the frontier and on the third piece of our strategy is building and selling maps. You need mattress. You need to know where the heck you're going right to cross the Mississippi here it's really wide or do I go. Further northwards narrow mountain range. Should I avoid and this is what we've done with ion ion is this. Is the home page the lightning our. It's community it's wicky. Guide story owes newsletters everything that you need to actually go out west and so Ryan the division for us the vision it radar Ulan products for an experience Nansha system. It's GonNa take a while. So the way we do that they'll destinations infrastructure and sell some APPs and two and a half years in We've got a few each category and excited to tell you a little bit about deploy in a bit. There's a couple of schools of thought right in startups I. Generally one that is kind of predominates is yet focused very very narrowly on a thin thin wedge that can help you dominate a small market but ultimately grow the pie as the market grows ultimately could extend the product in other areas. I'm in an everybody that's ever started. A company knows this is a truism. It's lengthy advice. He always get I find Massari Ariz actually in a very similar situation where we we are small market but we do have multi product focus all of which we kind of used complementary but for us you know different data and information products seem to make sense for For for radar. How of how you taken this? Divide and conquer approach. Because the three things that you just mentioned are very different and it's harder to see how complementary they are ranchos who is is spin up a product get to kind of good enough until Backup like with relay. It is. It's let's move onto the next lay. A bunch of those foundational bets with the expectation redeploy capital wherever kind of I it during the next cycle or or selling short the interrelatedness of of some of these tools of your building. Yeah Great Question Ryan and it's one that every investor. I've talked to four or every new hire potential candidate. We talked to write because they read. Paul Graham's notes online or they Y combinator combinator. They aren't supposed to do just the one thing. And and the one thing you know you get your product marks it and then he raised financing and so I think that that the majority of the time in established market. That's the way to go double down. You know get ready to die on a hill create a category and burn the boats votes right and go after I think that's that is an effective approach when it's clear you have product market fit when it's clear what the how the market is shaking out. When strong a strong position now we are in this incredibly dynamic market that is like decentralized exchange goes up and down infrastructure goes up and down defy? It comes out of nowhere. Stapled points out of nowhere so for us. The name of the game is a Gylfi and the name of the game is hedging hedging risk. We want to be here to usher in the next financial system. And that's going to take a while. It is not clear today. How the Roulette Wheel Stop Spinning where the values can occur right? It's clear that it. How centralized exchange check? Those guys are making money right. Compliance companies that are servicing these centralized exchanges check. They're making money some of these token issuers they money it's not occurring but it's there and so the goal of radar rates too much surface area as we can in the destinations infrastructure. NAPS and as the wheel starts slowing down than Yes to your point. Rhine double down and allocate capital. Where we're having that breakouts escape velocity lawsuit growth? We've had at once with with relay rate. We went from five guys in my basement working on up to three months later having users in one hundred fifty countries trading a hundred million plus volume And we we thought we had it right there. And so we're doubling down burning the boats and then the market started to fade and so he blossomed blossomed into these other categories. So I think what you'll see in the coming years is clarity from the market from regulatory perspectives. From we'll see what happens. Pence with defies medlock channel will launch. And we'll be able to focus on one of the three Defined in focused way where our volumes. Now just by comparison so one hundred million at the peak sure. Yeah so so question. So I'm doing all this End of the year planning now. I'M GONNA share publicly. Maybe by the time this podcast out but this year so two thousand nineteen relay. We'll have traded over. knbr one hundred million dollars. Cumulatively throughout the year of two thousand nineteen Can compare that to the month of like BEP Ury two thousand thousand eighteen where we did sixty million in one month and so what. You'll see what you see. In our graph it looks like a Bi modal distribution so we. We're very quickly went from quarter for of seventeen quarter one of eighteen to Over one hundred million dollars in volume and then Johnson Eighteen Graph Graf started to dip down. And then we've actually been up into the right this year are you is growing. But now we're sharing that graph with UNICEF Swab and bank core an IDEX is an a few other A few other venues as well so the category itself is doing about five to seven million dollars volume per day and then relay and we sort of oscillate in. Are we for second or third place throughout those days. Yup So let's talk a little bit about the about the decentralize exchange market so Over the course of this conversation I WANNA come back to I on and before we talk about lightning rebuilding while but the L.. Let's let's talk a little bit more about decentralized exchange I forbidding suit to Howard you break down different decks models Both structurally in terms of how they function in some of the trade offs radars or realized positioning within that and then ultimately how how the infrastructure providers make money. Because you know is very obvious how a centralized exchange makes you make a difference between the bid and the ask for treating feature combination with DAX. Because it's a lot of facilitated smart contracts. It's just fundamentally different. There's there's different designs like bombing curves decentralized order books that you know people are just not as familiar with but I love the explain. Like I'm clive level. I operate at anyway way. Yeah so so I think to start. We should rewind the clock to why was our first product a re. Why did we want to build in this? Decentralized Change Space. Why didn't we build a portfolio tracker or a game or any of the other things that was on the White Board back in in two thousand seventeen and we decided to move forward with relay for a few reasons number one? I was really fortunate to have Caleb sitting next to me as architect tactic calebs one of the only people in the world. Maybe the only person that world who's belts a broker or has been involved with building and brokerage at coin base actual centralized exchange with tax acquaint base architect the relayer with us and then With redshift which will talk a little bit about here has an RF Q.. Request for quote DOC design on top of lightning so killed has been involved in pretty much any exchange design that that's been created today. I think the only thing he hasn't built as Smart Order router anyway so that was one reason is we had the expertise from Caleb. The second reason is we wanted to go to market with a product that would help us achieve global awareness ernest right in principle if we built a tax planning tour maybe that Susa the US. But we don't get the hundred fifty country distribution that up here too pure your exchange but a number three and we wanted to build something that was very closely related to this ethos in our space around our next financial system on that's more fair more transparent inclusive in so many reasons for those reasons we decided to market with Kirby exchange so we studied traditional exchanges and we looked at how those rolled out rate the electronic markets these in the pit trading it moves to over the counter trading which moves to order books which moves to our request for quote design which Moves Smart Order router which moves to dark pools so we saw that playing out in traditional markets and we we looked at. Where are we in from a crypto? Where we from in the crypto space and this was two thousand seventeen and so we're about seven years into exchanges right Gawks and others bit snap and others? I ah hadn't been around that long and for us. The natural extension was moved to peer to peer markets. We are actually the third Ever pure market working to build on on top of cerium and to answer your question directly the mechanism design. We use this open orderbook. Now here's the five part that wasn't much explain like I'm five. This'll be the more simple We decided to use zero XS smart contracts to create this. Open orderbook on relay and you can think think of that like craigslist craigslist. Today you shop and you sell your bike you tell your couch. Some stranger shows up. You don't know them. They don't know you. craigslist doesn't take a fee. CRAIGSLIST doesn't automatic. You guys guys exchanged fifty bucks and you going away. That's like what happens on relay we're not matching buyers and sellers. We don't have a smart contract. Attract your deposit into. We're not even charging BS on these traits. Frankly we're a global bulletin board where buyers and sellers can me and trade directly cle- wallet to Wallet that is in stark contrast to the many other types of decentralized exchange that exists right so there's everything from automated market makers were deposited into a smart contract. There's a centralized exchanges with matching engines. They do buy and sell their are decentralizing decentralize exchanges that are just run by the actual company itself and they act almost like a bank teller as as the market maker themselves and Ryan. What I'm really excited about is a cross this category of decentralized exchanges? You have five different models that are competing and we're seeing what the market likes. What they don't like this year automated market maker has has really really come out of nowhere and been solved? A lot of these liquidity challenges in user experience challenges that an open orderbook like ours facing UNICEF opposite interesting. Because there's there's no way for UNICEF I self really make money At the liquidity providers. The folks that actually Make the markets in UNICEF are the ones that ultimately rewarded awarded with the season and the rewards and that is interesting in it's definitely fascinated investors within the industry are like how oh can make money off of this. The answer Georgia's when can't because it's better for small traders than it is for large traders which is opposite mall centralized exchange Yep Yep Palm are equally as better for illiquid assets than it is for liquid assets so youth definitely one of the top stories I think of In crypto of the year especially given the history and background of the projects coming out of like a smaller theory foundation grant. But what what are what are some of the other the nice part. About seeing these different remodels out and while one you kind of get central. What people wanted 'em what works? But that's not universal right so so if UNICEF is good for like a little you guys that are looking for access exposure to illiquid tokens right. What where to the other models fit in overtime? Yeah good question so I think An assumption that some people make about me or about our company is that we're under this belief that decentralized exchange exchange is the way forward and centralized exchanges must perish and we should replay. I don't feel that way. I feel like you're deeply relevant to a long tale of global customers. That can't or don't want to use some of these centralized exchange rate. We don't have the on ramps. We depend on the coin bases and of of the world for that functionality. We don't have KYC so institutions around the corner from from New York right. They're not they're not coming to relate today but the the our users in South Korea users in the Philippines are users in South America they care deeply about reuniting. I'm they care deeply about using all these different venues so I had to look into the future and project maybe just in the next year. So what are we going to start seeing number one there's a real uh space race happening between zero x and between Khyber Right now. Eight zero X and Khyber have come to this conclusion similar to the electrification unification of markets. These is that they need to be sharing and aggregating liquidity and so you're seeing both protocols updating to aggregate other on chain liquidity so when and things like UNICEF break out and have success we can pull that liquidity into venues like like relay so uh-huh. That's one one thing to keep your eye on that space race there will be Updating right alongside zero x will be able to aggregate all of that liquidity. Molly's modern on chain sources number two is the the it's called the inbound of automated traders are professional traders so in the last just two and a half years. If I had a graph the graph would look up into the right about professional marketmakers professional automated traders who are starting to identify these peer to peer markets markets as the source of Alpha as as a source of Let's tight spreads than essentially change and decentralized exchange are finally building out the infrastructure instability that they need to welcome these traders. So you're going to start seeing a lot more automated trading volume maybe maybe the third the third trend is we've been approached by a lot of large centralized exchanges about hybrid decentralize exchanges right. We I'm I guess I can't. I won't name any names but anybody who's launched a project that looks like maybe like an fanatics or bind stacks. We've talked to those centralized and they're all excited to participate in this market. They're just scratching their head trying to figure out some of the regulatory questions on how to share some of the order flow back and forth. But I think two thousand twenty so good year to be decentralized exchange. It's a tough year to launch a new one. But it's a good. It's a good year if you have an established limited equal if you have automated traders integrated with you and really excited to for some big announcements For really in the first quarter. Actually what are what. It's kind of the reserve assets of decks right now because I am skeptical that stable coins like US DC or paxos straight some of these regulated or quasi regulatory blessed rate. Stay are are are or should it be really fully integrated into into Dexter because there should there seems like there's way too much of a risk of like account seizure or you know some regulatory headwind that would really recast on that market in that case. It's almost like a two horse race Between die which everybody talks about in defy. And tether which you've argues is still the top decentralized decentralized stable coin in the sense that you know that even if it is not fully reserved right now there are so many important financial entities within the global system that that seemed like they will not let it fail or get dissuaded or were scared off off by some of the underlying issues with respect to our money is hell because it's so structurally important ratio so even if it's fifty percent reserve or you'd have thirty percent reserved at some point. There seems to be a collective understanding of like we're all in this together and this this asset sales for the foreseeable future brawl control. So we can't let that happen to be clear. A lot of the volume across all the re layers decentralize exchange has been died eve. And then if you just a few assets. Zero X is the Khyber Bat token hokey. You're not seeing this long tail of inventory view have you started to see an uptick in the Er see twenty two others since that does Yup Yup. Yup that's certainly the case. If you've talked to me if you talk to me in in early two thousand seventeen I would have told you. We're on boarding the world the token economy and everything that can be tokenism will be token is now at the time. I didn't know the quality of all the teams building tokens. But I read it. The blog post and I saw saw the tweets out so excited about a token for airplane in a token for storage and a token for computing. And all will build the spend you in and provide token abstraction shen. And when you go to use these dabs you'll integrate with and of course that has not been the case in many of those teams didn't shop and many of those teams failed on their their missions and we've been left with of just a few teams are are making great tremendous progress. Anything dies a maker teams a great example of that So Ryan what I do want to mention is is just around this category of of decentralized exchanges a lot of innovations happening around around theory right. It's it's using smart contracts in reality if you talk to these automated traders. Are you talk to these more pro. Sumer Day traders. They want two things number one they want access to bitcoin. They can't get it. You can get wrapped Bitcoin But turns out that's that's not Exciting so they want access to bitcoin and they want faster faster trading. And so so wh what we did. Our team took a look at layer two protocols we looked at wrapped and we looked pretty much anything that would allow us to meet those two customer mandates and and that led us to lightning network. And what we built with redshift very different than what we with relate on the Bitcoin blockchain where relies on the atheist blockchain. We don't use zero X use. HDLC'S HASHTAG contracts. We're not using this open orderbook design. We're using request for quote design. Where a customer would show up at trade shop their request right now? I'm a quote and then the market makers that use redshift would provide a quote with the spread built built-in and so we're really pushing the envelope in terms of what decentralized exchanges capable of how best we can do what inventory we can support and on redshift. Today we just support a theory amend bitcoins product but throughout two thousand twenty or any adding additional assets there. And we'RE GONNA be offering true cross chain atomic swaps CBS peer to peer non-custodial. All the buzzwords here we've got him but the reality is more finally fulfilling this promise of what he centralized exchange intended to. What do your years ago it's It it certainly would be fun to watch. The one question asked up front though that was not really answered. Is The economics of DAX. Get into you. Don't need to disclosure revenue thinkers note with with centralized exchanges. You can more or less back into fifteen VIPs with all you fifteen to twenty minutes of volume on average. That's a pretty quick and dirty estimated into at any given day of trading volume. You can extrapolate what they're annualized rate is right or whatever the different models battles and Texas not quite as simple but how do you make money from that market when the IRS cases automated. Yeah great question so so in many ways it's the same as centralized exchanges so who look at a lot of the venues decentralize world. They're taking those fees on trade. So Oh it's point. Two percent point three percent is a pretty traditional cross venues we have actually elected to keep our fees at zero. I'm so since. We launched relay in two thousand seventeen to today on the foreseeable future Those those fees are at zero. And we did that. Because we don't WANNA on a create even more friction for liquidity to move into the decentralized world. We don't want to create another reason for such. Just I'll stay with us. Stay with point base and and that's been a strategy. That's been a decision I would do. Time and time again. It's what allowed us to go from. Relative obscurity feuds in Colorado to owning a really large part of this market along. Are you making no revenue then as a result from X.. Rex Yeah correct. Yeah relay has relay is not we have not on that is very much a some of some people in the community. Call it this this. Let's go public goods and people in the community call it like critically important infrastructure We've we've contemplated many times about turning on turning on fees they're frankly we. We have a really long term horizon radar radio talking about the next financial system. And I WANNA make it really easy for liquidity to move into this space as reason why we went out and raised some some adventure financing rounds. It's the reason why we're building. Additional products is to find other places that we want to monetize that won't create maybe as much friction to trial ability of AH product or search. Yeah so I understand the strategy. I'm not I'm not so convinced that is necessary to compete key. But I'm I'm not as close to the ground I would I if the competition is intra decks. Maybe that's marginally helpful from narrative perspective but if if if it's decks versus centralised exchange volumes Then you're talking about a different user base right. You're talking about affect my diet. Their privacy the their transportability. This all custody All the things that are more like hard core right in the in the community the unity of heart but it seems like a different user that that's not necessarily to care and in some cases might actually feel more more comfortable if they knew I can execute this type of exchange by executing this type of exchange on this provider. Were we're using these protocols. I at least know that they're going to be maintained and updated so I can do it again someday because because if there's no model whatsoever then this is all nope you can't run on venture capital right. You Bet We're not running nonprofit. There will be a time and place to monetize relay We have liquidity goals. We have volume volume goals around that. And frankly we're I agree with some of what you sat around right if we if we decided to turn on fees tomorrow right. It's no no one's not everyone's going to pick up and go fuck those guys right there. There's a lot of brand love for a lot of integrations rations into relay liquidity. That that are I think very sticky. It's just picking the right time in the right place to do that. I'm really proud to to say that for most of the space we've been to the gateway integration and into decentralized exchange by making it free we've really increased the flywheel trial ability for different teams in companies companies. It's really nice to be able to call an automated trader or when I connected the project and say look just integrate with our. We're not gonNA charge you for trying out at his. Our our service area has expanded dramatically so in the future nonprofit affair but for and data inappropriate. You've taken cross products. What we use that as a transition point to talk about redshift ion yeah great great transition so with redshift Raymond and we're moving to this design and we're really putting the liquidity provisioning that in the hands of our market making partners who are providing these spreads spreads redshift. Guess what does not charge a fee the market makers get to decide what that spread is so if you go to redshift today you you you want to pay theorem and get lightning bitcoin. Back a market makers will be on the other side of that trade and They're going to decide what the price and frankly we're seeing doc. Pretty pretty low pretty tight spreads. They're already but similar similar approach for us so increase the try ability increase the throughput. Show go off a cross chain. Thomas Actually looks like a lot of people look at this product and are confused and Adding veon top of that. We've seen that can increase friction so again. Not a nonprofit in the future will be monetize so maybe a mission is red shifts working with lightning now or or get it good good clarifying question so back to this are indeed clashing in writing from a theorem exchange where people were asking for faster trades and access to Bitcoin so we went and did all this work and we identified the lightning network in in Hashtag our contracts as viable mechanism to build this Arthur q exchange on top of but we had this Epiphany Ryan we we realized if we just rolled out redshift rain early two thousand nineteen no one. No one was ready for a lightning network based peer to peer here. Thomas swap market is didn't get it. No one had wallets. There wasn't a Meta mask to the you just easily download and get started and to be clear when you talk about atomic swaps on lightning. You're talking about trading assets on Bitcoin. Lightning or you're talking about a bridge from point via lightning waiting to the second the latter one. Yeah Bridge Noah had built it no. No consumers weren't ready market makers certainly weren't ready and so we felt this fiduciary duty right. We felt there was incumbent on us to build some of this education in the market to to create some core competency in in our user. So I on was born ion is a homepage lightning. Our you showed up on radar to attack. Sorry Tech and you're gonNA find guides into oriels in wicky and everything so you need to understand what the heck is going on and of course at the bottom of funnel You you understand how to use and transact and integrate with redshift right shift and that's been a that's been a journey of two thousand nine hundred eighty and write our foray into lightning establishing brand credibility in the new space for US hanging in goal building the destination around redshift. I'm really excited that we we did it. We got it done. We're being integrated until a lot of the lightning. Naps bombs picking up there. A A lot of market makers have reached out to provision so early days for that market still a very small market next year. I think we'll see sie lay name. Start to start to hockey stick like it did earlier in two thousand eighteen. How do you how do you measure growth there? Because on the one hand the the channel capacity is may be artificially constrained right now. I I don't know exactly where the caps are but the last I checked it was something like six million dollars million million on lightning so that that's kind of part of it and then there's another part where you shouldn't necessarily know throughput in these channels. If you're running running something like redshift you you really only ever going to or ever should know the working capital required to set to rally so so there's a lot there on her right in terms of how quickly it scales number one but also just add even monitoring mondern metro successful market share. Yeah so I'd like to use this as an opportunity to explore a macro question that we struggle with and then really answer your question at a micro level so like the macro question is how do you build customer intimacy. How do you collect business? Intelligence in a market full of technologies technologies that are privacy preserving where the customer don't want you to pick up a caller to talk to them on Intercom or answer support question or they don't want. They want their privacy. So how do you do that When radar was born very much porn as a product leader product leadership was in the what I mean by that not arrogance around? We were the best but what I mean is that we are so focused on the technology and the product. How fast could we do a transaction? What could we do with zero X? What could do theorem? How does the technology work? And we've evolved into a company focused around customer intimacy. And it's really it's A. It's a stark difference. And if you had told me when we started and that I needed to become a customer intimacy business I would have said get lost right. We're focused on tack product and being innovative and now that we're here as this company focused around customer entity. What do customers what are they? Actually it's easier to collect that kind of data so to dive into the microbe. Question is even know what's going on with lightning. It's wallet off audited. It's talking to teams is having teams share their node. Metrics back with us is operating our own nodes and seen what's happening in with terms of throughput it's connecting to Bid Bid Fixes not bit. Stamps snowed and all the miners and understand. What's actually happening from the inside inside out and the inside out tells a very different story than outside right when you look from the outside in it looks like well Bassey's constrain lightning network? Maybe not growing there's less tweets out lightning in. There was six months ago. But if you're in if you're in this sort of the eye of the cyclone Tornado there was a lot going on all all of the teams that we're talking to nodes you're up into the right. There's a lot of integrations happening. That development velocity is moving. It's still a small market right. In and still measured in ems not bees as he sat right millions aliens not billions and our strategy as as with all destinations we build is right. Let's put our it's planning to a flag. Let's be there our infrastructure in the maps when folks show up where we're the only name name it in town so in terms of the two categories categories that you're talking about with lightning and then And then decks which is primarily built on a theory him today although finance chair now has. There's you know you're going to start to see in connects same thing although the next is not its own chain right. And they're both on correct. Yeah is it their own browser Ellsworth Khyber or it's a theory of zero x is zero in terms of the rails. And then there's you know there's a bunch of new liquidity thirty providers around that with the exception of financing so maybe we'll see some more competitive elements like that the years to come but but TV those two new areas that you mentioned are right at the heart of so much international but us specific regulatory hair. You're right and for the first time earlier. This year. We had the Pronouncements that was not official Shula was part of the speech. Where one of the CFTC SEC merchants free at which one basically question the the gun rock principle of like weather his code speech or could you ultimately hold responsible Jolla Bergey? Some of these technologies. If they're misappropriated. I think those justifiable you know Pushed back on And and many people wrote it off and I think it probably leveling will be a battleground for the legal cases in the future. How do you think about your own regulatory position but more importantly the regulatory positioning of any business? That's sharing code that could facilitate decentralized exchange Ching pure peer commerce that is inevitably going to lead to tax evasion and money laundering by people. Choose to do that but will appear to your way online. That is much much more difficult to truck and leave aside the qualitative assessment of whether whether those laws are good or fair proper char. I have my own political persuasions as this prog GonNa be more similar to the early Bitcoin community in terms of whether those are bullshit or not but the fact remains that there is no one to really point the finger at just yet. George how do you. How do you get started with conversations stations from a regulatory standpoint or even internal and when you think about your risk? Yeah Yeah it's a really fair question and and it comes up each interview that I do each person that I talked to So I take this stuff really seriously first and foremost fien compliant following the right regulations. It's a moat around Your Business. It's a competitive advantage manage. It's not something my opinion to be avoided. It's not something to run from. It's not something to try to Rideau missile your company a different jurisdiction to get away. I live in Denver Colorado Colorado. I'm a happy customer of the. US government happy customer of of all of these regulatory agency is these are important important piece for justice system. We wouldn't have love the powerful heartbeat of entrepreneurship in our country without eased Swim lanes without these guardrails in place so Before we we started radar in August of two thousand seventeen. Everything came to a full stop. Paid more money than I want to share it to Morrison foerster to check all the boxes. CFTC THE FTC SEC state laws. All you name it it should can you share. Is this out of people. ooh understand how much money actually costs to to do this way we spent. I'll share it. You're getting some good scoops. We we spent so the earliest right stage. We hadn't even raise money yet. We didn't even we had just formed our entity Fifty thousand dollars fifty thousand dollars in. I don't know if I can say a probably yell at me. But that was for investigation of all those different agencies and then second a very robust token compliance process. So I think a mistake that a lot of I think I've actually might have shared that with you. In the past a lot of exchanges made the mistake of just adding Tokens left and right and doing no due diligence instead we went and hired from Goldman Sachs a fulltime director of token analysis. Who still with US still still still drives that process Two and a half years later in alongside the atkin point that took him compliance process. We went to market feeling good about our legal. Oh strategy over time. We've continued to invest in reinvest. Now we've picked up working with Cooley. We work with a a two man band special. Sec Attorney Group in DC. We've actually went and hired a full time corporate counsel internally at radar from Pulse Anneli that drive drive the process from Fiduciary Duty Company perspective. And so I think we are dotted every I and cross every t that we can for our stage up up to the point where when we did due diligence I are seed round in our steer investors. Came back quite pleased. Continue as we talk with Potential candidates to work at radar. They do a lot of their own due diligence as well. They talked to their uncle. WHO's a lawyer? They talked to their friend is lawyer and it comes back. You know Thumbs up and so Ryan. I think the secret sauce in terms of why we feel that we're very compliant with those agencies is something I'll probably keep closer to the vest because it is a real mode and it is a real competitive advantage but suffice to say regulatory is hard it's capital intensive. You gotTa have patience but if you do it right you can and bill the real mo around your business and you can set a good example for what the space needs to grow and mature into. I'm really pleased with the progress we've fair answer. And and certainly one I'm sure is refreshing for the regulators and folksy speak with. Yeah the remains to be seen Where the responsibility ultimately lies anyway When it comes to non-custodial decentralized exchange age because It if you kind of letting everything up in terms of the software that you offer that still doesn't mean you necessarily control lead tensions the end users which I would argue is a good thing and healthy thing an ultimately creates enough friction where you're going to circumnavigate indicate the law. Then you're taking risks that you're ever found out and and have to deal with the consequences but but this kind of dragnet surveillance and And kind of sweeping indictments of Of Customer I go back to the Queen Base Beano subpoenas in the thirteen thousand people from twenty thirteen. We know that have to deal with all this retroactive tax policing and I just think it's GonNa be a nightmare. One of the reasons can be nightmares because in the exchanges had any tax reporting infrastructure place if money from from Queen Base to circle or circle to crack owner or an international exchange or to a hardware while that that cost basis reporting is is a complete nightmare. And it's only GonNa be ten times worse in Twenty seventeen crop especially because you're gonNA have issues where some of these exchanges consolidate line down selfish parts move their domiciles yet the A and and you're going to have to do this. In many cases like four or five six years in the past confer infrastructure in some cases just does not even exist anymore. Ayuthaya is going to get a lot of business. They're going to be happy campers. Well the lawyers and the risk so Ryan. Yeah so the last thing the last thing I'll share to close the loop on on regulation and I want to share about a little bit about deploy. We don't trade securities. We don't don't transmit behalf or uses we don't ever take custody or touch user funds. We don't take fees don't match buyers and sellers and so we have really gone out of our way to to to be compliant and work with regular now that is not the case for many other venues. And so I'm with you Ryan. I think there's a future in next. Cheer Twenty Twenty One twenty two where you do start to see teams that didn't invest in compliance regulatory get Shoot some slaps on the wrist or some large penalties and so It's a matter of when not if in in my mind. So let's close the loop. I think you mentioned deploy which most recent project. So let's let's talk about that to wrap up and and this is what I was most excited about to come on the show and chat out with you about. This is a major announcement for us as a company that is known for building consumer applications round defy and trading and payments. This has been. I think it will continue to be big news to the community so Ryan over the last two years or so we have fielded doesn't have questions from teams all over the world around around node operations node ops. They all wanted help knowing. How did you handle guests in parody when you were when you went to when you went to market globally around the world and the three lane? How did you get started on Bitcoin so fast and did you build index saying how many devops engineers do you have and who should we have and every time? Am We would answer those calls my emails or my vp of engineering hop on telegram and resolving issue. And what we what we came to realize too in about early two thousand eighteen thousand nineteen. How stuck our industry is the rate of development of new applications? What the games or defy Fi? Nafta's you name. It is really slow right now. In the reason you look under the covers under the hood because every team is investing not not in marketing growth design user experience. They're investing in devops back into engineering blocking engineering protocol. Because his let's call it this this node. Infrastructure is so immature designed for one person to run on one computer not to support a business international channel business global business and there's this mismatch in the market where teams are investing in the wrong thing. They're not investing customer intimacy. They're investigating product leadership like like like we did. And so we're we're really excited to announcing roll out deploy the very first note op slot. One launched it in early November number two friends and family and a few small trials to be making a lot of noise out loud launch. Here in in the first quarter. Is this something that's it's GonNa look similar to an alchemy bison trail Some of these your findings companies that yeah running similar systems order or what is question twister twister. Let's let's talk about the state of of no DOPP so we were one of the first customers of your customers alchemy and we'd we depended on those companies we didn't we're in a very similar position right. We didn't have a lot of this infrastructure ourselves and so we worked with these These API gateway services like some of the ones you mentioned Problem is over time. Few things happened number. One got prohibited from a cost perspective. Like five figure bills does make sense when I could go hire a handful of great devops engineers to do it myself number. Two as we had a global business These these these providers you mentioned run out of local data centers and so if you have a customer in the Philippines and there's a data center in Virginia welcome to latency welcome welcome to bad user experience especially if you have automated market automated traders who build their their livelihoods around latency. I've got some some rough phone calls around late. In the third reason is customize ability so if you want to build a business around bitcoin you want access to bitcoin and guess what those providers don't do that very much land walked to a theory. If you WANNA add indexing middleware middleware of your own bill aware from the community entity could lock. Can't do that right. You're just hit an API so from our perspective Ryan the differentiator here. What is note ops platform in? What does it mean to have built the first shirow platform truly focused around customize ability? We think that speed and reliability while important unnecessary Are Table Stakes Ray. They're not sufficient that everyone should do that. Any provider that you call and work with like reliability spe- expel ability. But it's really about customize ability. This is what we need is what our industry industry needs a new modern software design. We need modern devops. Tulane were not gonNa want exposed. API is it's not enough to to build an enduring company on top of so with deploy we have two tiers or two plans right in there. They're kind of similar to Carpool on Uber. Or rental car right so this. Api Gateway Service one point right. Everyone's going to hop in the same node. There's only three people in the backseat Uber. Drivers going to drive as fast as they want. You don't get to control that you don't get to pick the music but you get there. You know it works for for for the job and it's going to be a little cheaper or right you can pay a little bit more and you can renta car. You get to decide how fast you drive you get to pick the music. I'm you get to decide if you WANNA pick anybody up. And put them in the back seat into poise. The first platform to offer both right. We have this. API VI Gateway Service on for teams that are just developing or getting started. Or maybe just need that Simple functionality then we have an owned node can ssh into the node you can tweak and change any of the node parameters adware and actually build something A modern software offer team should be able to so that is Deploy in a nutshell. I'm so excited about this product. It's what I feel that our industry needs to take the next step of development velocity shipping. Velocity well it sounds like A. It'll be a fun. Twenty twenty four two four looking forward forward to seeing how some of these things Markets Comeback Letter released interest in some some of these smaller more technically focused markets that that that seems to have built up enough traction this year even though the volume were significantly lower than than the peak and And I'm sure Dr Bull for the roll out sometime Denver. Yeah the timing here. Yeah good good guests so as we think about when go make a lot of noise with deploy right we could do a hardcore press blitz or we could go and maybe boxed up a big old hacker thon in our own backyard. So so you'll have to stay tuned to to see when when the noisy press release to start to start to come out good Allen. Thanks so much for joining fun. One catching up as always real. What you and the rest of the team pull together? Yup I'll try and thanks her own for two minutes next time. Wrap thanks for listening. NEW EPISODES OF UNQUALIFIED OPINIONS. Go live weekdays at noon eastern time. You can follow me in the meantime on twitter at two bit idiot. They want to continue the conversation at rolling. Otherwise I'll see you next week.

Full Show (Drew Brees, Browns, LeBron James, Chiefs, Cowboys)

"Good morning welcome first things first. I'm John Wolf. That's Nick Right Danny. Canals with thoughts this morning. Good Morning Brandon. Cold Rainy Day out the TURTLENECK. Just like snugly you know you dislike cozy up up with it just checks. Cash eight is Iranian miserable. Day in New York. So hurry call out. Let's sake and watch US for three hours. Big Show for you on this Tuesday morning and we have to start with history made on Monday night. Football drew brees and the saints hosting the Colts. And what a game for breach third quarter. He finds his tight end. Josh she'll for a touchdown noxious Danny touchdown the record-breaking one which moves him vast asked Peyton manning for most passing touchdowns all time at five hundred forty. He got love from his teammates from his family from the fans they are New Orleans. brees finished the night in incredible twenty nine of thirty that is ninety six point. Seven completion percentage best mark ever in a single game and win to top it all off for the saints. Here's drew brees after the game. Listen it was. It was special everything about the night you know. I don't know how they pick. I don't know how they pick on Monday night. Football playing the colts right the team that we we won the Super Bowl against ten years ago so the whole whole Super Bowl forty four team is back for the ten th anniversary and obviously national television big big game and now that record in the balance as well and just kind of makes you shake your head you know. Are you kidding me on not sure how we got here. It just kind of makes your whole life and career flash before your eyes colts were like anything we can do to help you know problems. Did you sell his. Exposed neck was just uncomfortable teaser. He would've looked turtlenecks blazer. That's right all right nick. Let's let's talk about drew brees and then we'll get to wear the saints are right now. Where does breeze rank right now? All time time among quarterbacks. Well it's such an interesting question because we talked about this a little over a year ago when brees passed. I think it was Peyton manning maybe two years ago actually on the passing yards list and you can statistically. Here's the profile of one of the two or three greatest quarterbacks ever. He's he's got more touchdowns than anybody. Now more yards than anybody more completions than anybody. So the three things quarterbacks can do complete passes complete passes for yards and incomplete. BLEEP passes for touchdowns. He's done more of that than any quarterback ever he and Brady might catch him in touchdowns it'll depend on who plays longer. But he he brady Payton Manning and Farve are basically the top of the mountain. Statistically across almost all statistical categories but breeze isn't in that class quite and even with another super bowl. I don't think he'd be in that class. Because there's one thing that the other the modern day all time greats have which is a period of time where we all thought. Oh that's the best quarterback in football and breeze despite his brilliant millions and his story is unbelievable. This is a guy who won comeback player of the year. Not Coming back from injury coming back. From being bad he got benched in two thousand thousands three for Doug Flutie and in Oh four he runs the NFL Comeback Player of the year award. He then in Oh six has to go to a new team because in the first four or five years of his career he only had one one outstanding season and starting six to now. That's when he's gone on this unbelievable run. But if you're talking about modern era quarterbacks there's obviously brady right here here but then that next. Hear Me Peyton Manning Joe Montana John Elway not only do all those guys have multiple super bowls but all those guys is at one period of of their career. Were the clear cup. Best quarterback in the League that next year I think is where breezes long with Aaron Rodgers. There's Brett Farve Dan Marino but even those guys all have one thing breeze doesn't a league. MVP multiple first team all pros. So it's really difficult focal to slot him. It's almost to cross sports a Ricky Henderson situation where you're talking about or even maybe Hank Aaron's a better example. I don't think anyone talks throughout Hank as the greatest baseball player ever. But you look at the numbers and you're like why is he not in the discussion because he was probably never the best player playing at that time. So I'm not trying to take anything anything away from drew but that's to me. He's on that third tier of modern greats. which is nothing against him? It's a big Ben. It's Eto are Troy Aikman. It's it's ahead of some other guys but it's not with peyton manning. It's not what Joe Montana and certainly not. Tom Brady top five all time. But modern era quarterback because as we are living in a new age even think if you went back and pinpointed it to two thousand four two thousand five when you saw the pass interference rule change which really was the Peyton Manning. Roll like that. Nfl Oh competition committee. Which Bill Polian was part of inferior? Had say hey he had four interceptions. AFC Championship game. They changed the rule all the sudden. That's when you really saw an explosion Asia passing stats and the NFL. So you really almost have to look at everybody a little bit differently because these numbers as insane as they are these. They're all GonNa be broken down the road. Because more Patrick Mahomes like inge longevity does become a come into play here but I also feel like you love Lebron. The one thing thing Lebron doesn't have the catch. MJ Is the rings. So I WANNA make sure we don't do that with drew brees because he only has one ring like we're going to hold that against him and I think that's an easy Thing to fall victim to is that all of a sudden you say well he's never been that and the fact that while he was playing peyton manning was ringing up five. MVP's well neither one of US would make the case for him overpaid manning but he's got to be right there with the will but let me ask you that because let's just say the Saints Win the Super Bowl. This bathrooms. Just give it to him. He's obviously do not breed right no. He's still obviously not peyton manning. Even though they'd have the same number of super bowls he beat Payton in a super bowl and he has all the records. I still think I hi test wise. When those two guys were playing they played in the same era? Payton was better right. Yes Joe Montana to my over John Elway who went to five one two do and his numbers guy who's example. The numbers aren't there. There's four modern era guys already but see. I don't have always ahead of drew brees because I look at the way as some of these guys played. That's why I haven't rational reverence for Dan Marino. Sure because I I grew up down there I was friendly with them. Got To get got to know him so I might be a little bit too loyal to Dan Marino and if you look at the lack of weapons that he had never run game and they really relied heavily on the past like if John Elway didn't get Terrell Davis at the end of his career. He doesn't get those super bowl. We we might not talk about him the if you have Marino up there but that would mean breeze because top five the thing about top. Fives is there's only five people so brad him at five for IRV. Yes ahead of Aaron Rodgers ahead of obviously Steve Young and Troy Aikman all is okay. So you've got him ahead of Elway. See you go Brady Manning Montana Montana manning either way Maria Radi Montana peyton manning Dan Marino drew brees. And I think for all these discussions were almost better off doing tears. You're right because not in the tier with Aaron Rodgers Brett Farve and Dan Marino. Because it's because then we end up arguing four versus seven verses six and Fitz about the eye test or if it's about Oh who's Mvp I about who's the best game. Doom should not matter. Who I we even keeping stance about it because if it statistically he's right right there was this the but so it's all of it right? So it's for these discussions it's partial winning its partial stats and its partial. I test drew brees. This is done enough winning to get in the conversation absolutely. He hasn't done so much winning. That ends the conversation like with Brady. But he's done enough to get in the door. If you don't have any winning then you have to the test and the staff to be so overwhelming like Marino you force your way in right with elway. He did so much winning that it kind of overcomes becomes the eye test for the stats. He went to five super bowls. So it's it's kind of a a what's the word combinations journal use of all of his stats are an aide triple. Plus the tests for me is very very good but he's just hurt by the fact that he came in right after four of who won three. MVP's he played during Rogers who's won multiple MVP's Br Break Brady. WHO's won three? MVP's peyton manning WHO's one five so even things like all pro teams. He's only been in the first team all pro quarterback once in his career. which is maybe? It's the ear is working against him if he'd come in the mid eighties. Would it be different. I don't know but that that to me is always going to hurt him on this all time rankings. I think to the record that impresses me most and this is a title he can have in his own right the most accurate thrower of the football ball of all time. And that's backed up statistically you know with the completion percentage he's going to go down with the highest career. Completion percentage the single season completion percentage and now the game completion percentage edge. That to me is a title. That's worthy of its own category. And he's got that Barna. I'm telling you nick agenda. I played seven years. NFL and watched a lot of practises. Where you're just playing seven on seven with no defense on the field? And you had quarterbacks. Starting quarterbacks who couldn't complete twenty nine out of thirty passes passes with no defense the fact that he did this a real live tackling taking place and guys running routes. It is absurd to be able to do this. That's on that stage. A team whose playoff life was on the line in Indy and who needed the win the saints needed the win and he knew he had this record hanging overhead. I think that if he doesn't get it Tom Brady could be the one getting the ceremony a week from now in that context one of the thing drew brees has his story is is one of the most unique in NFL NFL history. Farve stories very unique as well to be a second round. Pick to have your first team say at we like. Yeah but we're going to go with Philip rivers to have the Miami Dolphins Pass on you because because of an injury to be benched in your first late four Doug flutie briefly and then to go on this Ron. No one could have anticipated this coming. When he teamed up with the Orleans? Saints and Sean Payton in two thousand six year right now. It's moving on the Cleveland. Browns suffered another loss Sunday this time to Arizona among the many lowlights another tough outing for Baker. Mayfield a sideline blow up between Jarvis Landry and head coach Freddie Kitchens Kitchens and now this a recent report stating multiple Browns players including Jarvis and Odell yelled at the Arizona sideline to quote. Come get me after the game. Freddie Kitchens said heating care about his future as the browns head coach and yesterday to walk that back living. Let me clarify since I care about my job. All right only care though about getting being better today. That's what I was trying to illustrate Is I'm only focused on today. On getting this football team to play the best of their ability today and to increase those chances of getting to that point on Sunday the only thing I was trying to illustrate is the fact that I'm only concerned about what we're doing is a football team today. Nuts it of course I want to be back and that's a main main. Yeah what does it feel like. The wheels are coming off this team as they inch closer to ending the season. Do you think the Browns to clean house and build again around Baker. Yes obviously they should clean house in. That means I think Clean House means fire the head coach I the general manager. John Dorsey his job is going to be safe. But he's now wow on far more tenuous footing than anyone could be anticipated going into this year. Because one thing Dorsey the best thing on his resume with the browns was I picked Baker Mayfield any field. That looked amazing a year ago. It obviously right now looks far more questionable. Even if I still believe in Baker's ability to turn this around but for the browns around this has been the worst case scenario season Baker looks terrible more on that in a bit. The locker room does appear to officially be falling apart with the reports that Odell a month and a half ago was saying during the Games in October come get me to opponents. Jarvis now reportedly say according to Mike Silver echoing those statements against the Arizona Cardinals. They don't have any direction. I mean just a few weeks ago. The Best Player on their team thumped in opposing quarterback in the head with his helmet. That seems like it's a footnote head coach. Of course then wore the Pittsburgh started shirt like all of this has been a comedy of errors for Cleveland. The only silver silver lining Danny is because they've lost two of their last three because they are now defacto eliminated from the postseason. I believe they absolutely will move Yvonne from Freddie Kitchens which is better for their long term future than sneaking into the playoffs and keeping Freddie Kitchens because he seems way in over his head. And that's where the house cleaning has to start. I've been late to this party because I always try to give guys benefit of the doubt say. Hey It's first year maybe can learn on the fly you know. We've seen seen coaches survivor. Upstarts and be able to accomplish great things right. They come back from it this to answer your question. The wheels have come off their long. Gone the cars on fire. You're you know you're trying to put the fires out left and right He. That's the perfect way to describe it as somebody WHO's over in over their head and it shouldn't be that much of a surprise prized doesn't have much experience as coordinators being a position coach and all of a sudden they just here you go. Here's the keys and we should have listened to win some coaches that were on the staff said. Do you know what a lot of success the came last year wasn't really because of Freddie Kitchens. There was some of the other guys in that staff who are no longer there you mentioned the myles Garrett situation you know. He's he's in charge of that. Of course we've talked a lot about the discipline issues with penalties. Just stupid foolish penalties. Not that those fall in the head coach type of culture you creating at practice that carries over into games. You haven't been able to keep now. This might be a hard job to do but it is his his job to keep Odell Beckham. Happy to keep Jarvis Landry. Happy to keep your best players invested. He's lost them clearly. Records aside the exchange ames. They just showed right there with Jarvis Landry where he comes over there and view Bakero. It's it is bad and when you've lost the locker room and I think that's it's where Freddie Kitchens is now that to me. Is that the signed it. It's over you are done with because you don't regain that trust in those relationships just like that. It takes time and a lot of times. It's the damage is done. And I think that's where they are now for the browns and it's the question then becomes where do you go. You know. And and I do think a college coach like Lincoln Riley with. Here's the thing. Would you want this job. And he's got a really good job at Oklahoma and makes a lot of money. It's pretty close to what you you can make an NFL Baker Mayfield low loved college. He still has a college mentality when you see him talking about rivalries. He's and calling out teammates. Who are going to leave and Free Duke? Johnson was wanted to be traded like. That's a hard swallow early in your career. You understand that but you become a professional. That's part of the business business. I still think Baker would thrive with college type coach. That's why I do think Lincoln Riley would be a good option. Urban Meyer was in Ohio from Ohio. Like I think he'd be a good option. But that's the one thing that concerns me. What direction are you going to go after this and that would be you know the third head coach for Baker Mayfield? That's a tough ask. Do you think that our expectations were just a little too. Hi For this team. And that they bought into it they were young team. That may be heard or listened more than they should have listened to what everyone was saying about them. How high everyone perched them before? The season began There was just no way anyone was going to live up to those expectations. Who will I agree with? You said until the very end I mean. They absolutely could have lived up to expectations. You ten games. I mean. That's the expectations. Weren't they win. The super bowl the expectations weren't they'd be the best team in football. It was a team that won seven eight and one last year with a horrible kicking Situation and turnover that coach position in a rookie quarterback get a couple games better. I don't think they were unrealistic expectations. They just failed on all fronts. The head and you can't succeed in this league with a bad head coach and when the quarterback playing Baker is you could have any other combination. We can talk about Odell being the underachieving Jarvis being unhappy the myles Garrett suspension the defense not being as good as I thought it would be but ultimately you could have the eighty five bears defense and and the special teams and if you have a head coach and quarterback Combo Right. Now that's playing coaching away. Kitchens is and show bakers numbers bakers. Baker's been a train wreck. He is been by any estimation one of five worst. Everyday starters lead this year can't win that way just flatly. We cannot win that way so I now did. The expectations get to Baker. Possibly was he clearly was listening to the outside noise. There's no question about that but Baker was has been terrible this year. That has been a constant Freddie. Kitchens has shown no no ability. No there's no reason to believe he's prepared or qualified for this job and by the way his football resume up until fourteen months ago said he was not a prepared or qualified for this job. The only I wouldn't go Lincoln Riley to me that would be rewarding. Baker Baker would love that. I I I hate to say this because I feel like the old man yelling from the porch but Baker might need a little humbling and this season I think has been humbling and having a third head. Coach is not a good start for any quarterback but he was not his fault. I don't think Freddie's his fault they just hired the wrong guy bringing a Ron Rivera Rivera type. That's the or Mike McCarthy who was mentioned air because of the relationship with John Dorsey. Someone who has experienced in this. The reason I say Rivera is because then you're the quarterback and you're like oh the the head coach is not being picked based on me. He's a defensive minded coach. Pick the offensive coordinator are based on Baker. Pick the head coach based on the organization. I'm not saying Lincoln Riley wouldn't be successful right but for this team. I don't know if it's what they need. It's a mess for sure. It is an absolute mess. I think rare out somebody that brings some stability there but Baker's humbled he has to be has he learned. That's the thing I don't know because in the off season may be no commercial even the commercials but has he learned way to handle media to to throw him just two weeks ago. He's throwing the medical staff earned Neto calling out and talking about Adele's injury like those are things you don't air out with the media. He got into a feud with the media. Member there in Cleveland not that long ago to me he's been humbled somewhat but as he truly learn what it takes to be a professional. I still think he has a long way to go on to Lebron James and the Los Los Angeles Lakers sitting on the best record in the NBA at twenty four and three and as a fun reminder. This is Lebron seventeenth season which makes the fact that he's leading the NBA yea in assists for the first time in his career. That much more impressive. And oh by the way. He's played in every game so far. Here's Laurent on the theme of this. This season load management. If I'm healthy I play that's all your. That's the approach again to like late season. We've cliched and we can't get any better or any worse. It could benefit from that. But I mean why why would not play from unhealthy. That doesn't make any sense to me. Personally I mean I don't know how many games I got left for my career. I don't know how many kids that may show up to a game there to come see me playing if I sit out in were you know. That's my obligation obligation is deployed play from our team Mason. If I'm if I'm healthy and I'm applying coast since me out. I'm not healthy. Not a little dig it quiet there during the press conference. He think nick that Lebron should take a page out of his book and consider sitter load management with where he is in his career and how hard he's been going so far this season no book is its own book and needs to be. I mean you said it. The theme some of the season's been load mandarin because of one guy and it is. It's hurt the standing of the league. It's her television ratings. It's I think for the average fan. They think a a lot in the whole leagues engaging in this when they're not eighty S it's one guy who happens we the reigning finals. MVP Lebron approach is of course the correct one and has been his approach throughout his career aside from last year where he got his suffered a major injury. There's only been one season. We're Lebron missed major. Time his first year back in in Cleveland where he missed a two week stretch dealing with a knee. Injury now became a bit of a punchline because while he was dealing with it he went to see Ohio state win the national title but he missed eight. The aims in a row dealing with a knee injury other than that. Lebron plays seventy six games a year at a minimum every year. That's what he's done for the better part of seventeen eighteen years the team that invented load management the Spurs with Tim Duncan played seventy four and seventy seven games. In years. Seventeen gene and eighteen Dirk Nowitzki played seventy seven games in year. Twenty the initial load management was. You don't have to play all eighty two. It's foolish Polish to play. When we're on our third game in four nights and your long term veteran and you might have a bit of a lingering something take the night off? There is no extra cheese more and I gotTA play all eighty two but but the idea that we would go from where it was. You should play eighty plus where it became which is seventy five is a reasonable number or two missed eight of twenty eight. He's miss higher percentage than last year when he only played sixty games. It would be devastating for the sport if other people took took this approach. And Danny I appreciate what Lebron said at the end there where he said. I don't know what little kid came to see me play if you watch them play in. Atlanta wasn't a little kid. It was a grown man. Right behind the Lakers bench in a Lebron Jersey US Tinsley from Atlanta. They play there once a year. He probably bought those tickets four months ons ago and if Lebron that night even as a grownup he for for that fan that fan. Who's what makes all this possible? Lebron says am taken the night off that and that's the worst moment of the guys sports here instead of the best. He understands his responsibility to the league. In a way that the vast majority of our superstars superstars also do one happens not to this might be one of the favorite things I've ever heard. Come out of his mouth because I think it is. It is sending a message acids league wide and I do think this was more problematic a few years ago when it was kind of becoming a status symbol. I'm good enough. I can sit over here. Take the night off off. I can manage. I can take a rest and I can do that. You'd sit over there. You know. In your nice looking suit. It would be a status symbol kind of a cool family talking about was it was a really tough spot in the league. Because the two best teams in the West the Spurs. who were the first team to do it? And then the warriors when they add k. d. knew they were just going to coast through the regular other season so you had the two best teams in the premier conference both teams engaging in it which is where it really started to catch catch hold and then Adam. Silver sends sends a stern message to the League which everybody pretty much abide by except for Leonard but ultimately where we've come now is where Adam silver can do all he. He can try to do everything he can try to send letters. He could try to send warnings. He can try to send messages. It has to come from the players themselves that realize for the health of the game game. We need to go out there and we need to play when we're capable of playing and it can't become a thing it can't be a status symbol and that's where I appreciate the Lebron on as the face and the voice of the NBA sending a message to every player out there. That might be considering this if he can do it. Then I can't because that's really where the message has to come from it. It has to come from the players and if Lebron's out there voicing that message it's going to resonate throughout the Lebron is much more of a team ambassador a league ambassador then quiet all cool I really cares about is can. Can I be there for my team. Or what about winning the title for this team right now. Whatever it takes and Lebron cares about the integrity of the League and people coming to watch him and and all that it's a much bigger conversation? I agree with the Lebron Point. The quite thing we'll see I mean the the whole I mean you know. What would have helped the clippers? If they'd beaten the Bulls the other night and a three point loss when quite sad I was eighth game of Twenty Eight Games so I understand that the the the what we we've decided with Colli. which is the whole the reason? This is a conversation this year. That knows what he's doing is actually the self list thing and some other shows will discuss is Lebron. Lebron being selfish by playing is stat chasing. is He doing these things. As opposed to you. Show up to work when you're healthy to play to show up to work which she's been. The constant in all work is sports lies since work. I mean I mean since you under gatherers servers you can go to it. It's you get an off season. You have off days. There are times. Nobody seen you've got to be eighty two nobody's arguing Back in the NFL. Now the chiefs picked up their fourth straight win Sunday against. It's the Denver. broncos are pretty dominant win in a blinding snowstorm and while they had their struggles. The injuries that defense they are two wins away from the exact same name record that they posted last season. What asked if he likes the chiefs getting slept on rating? Mvp Pat Mahomes said quote. I think I do anything. People are are sleeping on Mahomes and the chiefs this year. I absolutely do especially considering coming into this season. They were the odds on favorite to win the Super Bowl. And and what's changed like I don't know like it's the same roster. They got the same pieces there. I get it in. Homes was hurt for a couple of weeks and he had an injury but as he continues to get healthier this. This team is a force to be reckoned with and you saw what he did in the weather. This past weekend against Denver didn't phase him one bit. He's got so much natural talent. They have weapons on on the offensive side of the ball. And I know the defenses still a concern but I don't think it's a significant reason why you should be uh-huh this team can't win the Super Bowl. Their defense statistically is better than Green Bay's and better than Seattle seahawks and we talk about them essential soup candidates. Why can't we talk about the chiefs that way and neither neither Green Bay North Seattle has the offense firepower county and city big difference last year? I feel like I said this a month ago. slasher twelve and four. Everyone loved them this year. They're going to be twelve and four. Everyone's out on of course slasher twelve and four was good enough for the one seed this year unless New England loses to Buffalo. They're going to be the three so there is I understand that significant difference but the deepens is playing far better right now than it did at any point last season they just added drill slugs. Who's got four force? Fumbles and five and a half sacks this year we'll see what impact he can and make in place for the injured Alex Okafor but dating back to week seven. The chiefs were at their low point. I would say after the back. toback Indian Houston Losses Indy. They they played terribly Houston. They gagged the game away. Here's what they've done. Since then. Denver National Television Watch their quarterback his kneecap dislocated and annihilate them play Green Bay on national television with the backup quarterback. That game is twenty four a piece in the fourth quarter. They beat Minnesota a very good Viking seem with a backup quarterback quarterback and then the titans game a game they dominate for fifty eight. And a half minutes and somehow invent a way to lose at the end then the defense plays great. They beat the chargers. There's the offense and even play great. They beat Oakland. They go to New England and beat them and they just annihilated the Denver broncos. They haven't had what I would consider a bad game of football since week. Five against Indy and they are finally for the first time all year healthy. Of course right right now the ravens have been the best team in in football. I think the saints are the most complete team in the NFC after those two teams there is no team. You can make to me the credible case. You should have more faith in in the cancer. Each year I I now joined by former all pro running back Brian in Westbrook. Good Morning Brian. Nice to see also On Sunday Bryan. The game. We've all been waiting for all season in NFC each showdown on Fox cowboys and Eagles from Philadelphia. Our guys have Fox bed. Have the boys favored by two and a half nick. You buying China Cowboys's road favourite. No I'm not and it's not because I'm super high on Philly Philly's pulled one out of the fire and back toback weeks against back to back bad teams I give Carson. Winston ingles credit for not folding in those situations. But it's not like they all of a sudden look like they've got right. I understand the cowboys just played their best and most complete game of the season. But this is a drastic overreaction to the cowboys for once all year looking at their best looking the way a lot of people thought they could throughout the season and I know there is going to be the narrative of well. Are they peaking at the right time. You cannot be apeaking if you were just at your lowest moment. The cowboys three weeks prior to their great game against the rams sound like they were on the cusp of putting it all together. They implant great defensive game and integrate offense of game and then no they played terribly against buffalo and then followed that up by playing even worse against the bears so north. I'm not buying. The cowboys rode favorites over a team with a pulse in the eagles. At the very least have that. And I'm not buying the cowboys as all of a sudden some now dark horse contender tender if they get into the tournament even though Brian Phillies had considerable struggles this year. Along with the Dallas Cowboys. I'm actually buying gene the cowboys as roles pavers. Here's a reason when Zeke plays which he will this week. The cowboys are five. And no against the Eagles Zeke has gone off against the Philadelphia Eagles. Eagles in the Eagles Defense has not looked very good as of late. Here's the thing. Though when they played each other week five or six never was the Dallas the Philadelphia Eagles had four turnover the Dallas cowboys converting for those three of those turnovers into touchdowns those are big stats and so if the eagles just say to me we can go out there and not turn the football over. We're in in the game that means they're Carson Wentz came come from behind these last. Two weeks has an opportunity of helpfully. Wendy's games I still think even as a underdog underdog. The Eagles have an opportunity to win this football game. But the big three for for the Dallas Cowboys. That's the most important part. How can you slow down the Big Three Cooper Dak as well as is Zeke? I got a little Christmas budget. Set aside for my daughters. I'll put it on this game on. The Eagles has dog daughters. Have the best Christmas. They've added a long time. I think everyone I think you hit a spot. Nail on the head I think people are buying into. Hey the cowboys have figured out. I think they might have but I need to see. Are you a bigger body of work than one game where they kind of capture all this magic and it was great. It was awesome but I needed to see this. Those three games that's regained skid. I need to see by way two of which were on the road in nasty conditions where it looked like oh this is a team from Dallas where it's typically warmer or they can have played nice controlled environment as opposed to having to go on the road and I get Zeke is playing in there five. No with Ezekiel Elliott. But how do we know which Jason Garrett is going to be calling plays as he can can't afford isn't going to feed them the rock enough to get away from it. Are they going to try to get cute at different times. I haven't seen enough consistency from this Dallas cowboys to stick to have enough confidence. Say you know what they can lay two and a half points go on the road and do it in Philly with a playoff type atmosphere. I can't buy into that just yet. Nick what's on the line for for this game the Cavaliers Abbas can clinch with a win the division. If they win this football game the Eagles if they win this game they don't clench there obviously dominating position if they win the game so I mean mean the winner of this game if the cowboys went one hundred percent they win the division. If the Eagles wanted I'd say it's Colston Ninety percent they win. The we talked so much on this show about trust. Who Do you trust more? It's hard to trust either of these things because of the inconsistencies in both teams have had all season but well. Who Do you trust more coming in the team that showed you? They can do it last week or the team I I don't trust either. The phillies at home phillies. I understand home field in the NFL. This year hasn't been as much as it has in years past particularly on the game wing side of things. I get that part of it but I also think we say Dallas finally put it all together. Okay in the game they put it all together. They botched the coin toss and the opening in kickoff. The they did put it all together. Eventually after they screwed up the two easiest parts per gallon I mean you bought the coin. Toss The New York and our river on parachute suit in to save you. Even though Dak screwed that up that was not their officials fault. And then you. Your new kicker kicks it out of bounds. I just there is not been at any level of consistency from Dallas this year except for the fact that in the first three weeks you're against horrible teams. They looked great and I do wonder if how great the passing attack. Look those first few weeks. Brian trick either Kellen Moore or the team is a hole into thinking. They were something that they weren't which is is not a run. Oriented Ezekiel Elliott Center team. Instead Zeke being one of DAX weapons which is the way they treated the next two months the football which I think led to a lot of their media. That's a concern. I have for the Philadelphia. Eagles they may have been confused about whether they were going to be a passing team. We're running team. But last week. They they understood exactly who they were going to be. They had D Z going as well as Tony Pollard. Over those guys had over one hundred rushing yards in the other concern is the Philadelphia Eagles Eagles defense. They got thirty seven points. Put up on them by the Miami dolphins seventeen points by the giants twenty seven points by a rookie quarterback haskins where everybody is taking advantage job. And so now I'm saying here comes Amari Cooper. Here comes back. Here comes Zeke. Here comes Tony Pollard. They're going to try to run the ball down their throat and this is what they're saying if you're kind of more we're going going to run the ball until they stop it when they stop it. Now we have the ability to pass over the top with Dax Finding Amari cooper who the DB's for the Philadelphia Eagles have not been able to stop receivers. They haven't been able to tackle very well. Michael Gallup going over top. Those are big time things for the Eagles and defensively. They have not been very good. I think we're giving obviously. There's GonNa be an overreaction to with the cowboys done. I think what the Eagles have done. I know they're against bad teams. But we're talking about career defining moments for Carson wentz coming back from seventeen three and I know it's the giants and no it's not very impressive. Career a game winning drive against the Redskins and I know it's the redskins but those types of moments can build up confidence in teammate in him in his own wants that can resonate and that they can carry over some momentum to into this game where maybe they start playing better at the time the kickoff as opposed host to waking up at halftime are we confident Kellen Moore has now decided. He's going to change the game plan to run the ball even though the eagles are terrible against the runaway confident Gilmore's GonNa go against what he did the whole first. What happened to season? Well I think the game plan against Eagles has been consistent. Run the football when you have Zeke. They've been poverty no. They run the football every single time. They played the Eagle Eagles including earlier this season. I don't see that changing you might change it against different teams but against the eagles. They run the football and Zeke's averaging around one hundred and sixty five yards from scrimmage in his five career games games against phillies. You mentioned they're undefeated in those games. I I I'm not trying to make the case. The Dallas can't win this game. I'm trying to make the case. They are the same team today. They were last. Is Tuesday last Tuesday. They were a flawed underachieving team. Because they all of a sudden put it all together for a week against a different flawed underachieving achieving team in the loss. The rams the rams this week this past week or where the cowboys all right now. A team that had been underachieving the rams was two games for Nelson's one played two really good Games. It's like oh are the rams back could the rams via dangerous no actually. They're not even going to make the postseason in next year. They're in real real trouble. DALLAS AFTER US remain down. They do it for one week. It's like Oh cowboys. Nobody wants to face them. In the first round of the playoffs everybody wants to face them in the first tier here point they interviewed Jared Goff before the game on Sunday and he said yeah look we had adversely but we figured it out came out the other end in the mouth and listen. The Eagles by by the way are in a similar boat. Which is why the cowboys can obviously win this game? But these teams are who they have shown us they are. There is not some mid season. Transfer coming there's not some employer coming off injury that's GonNa Save the day their average football teams. Can I make a public apology right. Here Carson Wentz because we did is highlight the throw that he whizzed past wiles mile centers in the back end zone. I kind of downplayed it. I went back and watched it last night. That Bro was and I did not give enough credit I Apologize Carson wedding and hand if you noticed when he was scrambling he kind of looked off the defensive a little bit back towards the middle of the oldest. I didn't have my glasses on this great pie. Apologized Dr Carson Wentz. It was insane. Things are bad when your head coach has to have multiple press conferences inches over the course of the season to talk about either t shirts. He should not have been wearing things he should not have been. This is the head coach by the way. What do you think the browns should do? Should they clean house and start fresh by building around Baker. No you don't Clean House if you clean house you're getting rib two very talented receivers getting rid of one of the better running backs talented to your thirteen though. Yeah but you need a better leader. That's what they need all these things you're talking about. Come get me all those things. Those are the results of guys in teams. Losing I've been on the team. It was losing in right after the Super Bowl. We were six and ten and we had a lot of infighting in our football team. When you lose everything goes wrong everything from your meal in the morning morning from your lunch from your dinner? Everything is absolutely wrong. We start winning things change and I think the attitudes on the sideline players are saying will change as well in order to do that. You gotta get rid of Freddie Kitchens. Now that's just answer. You need a better leader. A guy with more confidence guys. So here's the thing. If you respect your coach you don't go yell at them like that on the side like you don't have that type of blow up on the sideline with your head coach. You just don't do it or if you do after the game you come to me and say I shouldn't have done that. I was out of line. You don't make that. What type of mistake? These guys don't respect for kitchens because he doesn't have the pedigree he hasn't done it in the NFL and because of that these guys are wavered. They're all over the place. If you get a Costa gets in there focuses your team finds a way to get Baker to stop throwing the ball to the opposing team. This is a different type of football team. You could win then then guys WanNa be there but right now because of all the losing. Everyone's GonNa be saying everything and that happens on every team across the NFL. Clearly you want to build around Baker Mayfield man. You drafted him for a reason to make them your franchise quarterback you've seen glimpses rookie season where the future was bright. It was promising. Now you've had this regression and I do think it focuses on the quarterback coach relationship relationship and not only from A. How do they get along? But how are they executing more importantly on the field and there's just been a severe setback. There's been a lot of film study Saudi and Breakdowns of why isn't he. Put me in better positions. Why aren't utilizing Odell Beckham or is one of the most talented receivers in the game and it has been an absolute disaster from that standpoint point? I do think you do need to John. Dorsey when you're the general manager it's one thing to acquire talent but you have to acquire the right talent let for your locker room. There has to be chemistry there at the guys that buy into your franchise and to their surroundings and I think John John Dorsey does need Abbas the sit down with Odell Beckham Jarvis. Landry is probably fine. He's over a thousand yards like he's still producing but I think he needs to sit down to Odell Beckham and say hey. I'm seeing these reports sports. I'm seeing do you want out of here. Do you want out here or do you want to win here. Do you want to be a part of this rebuild and if the answer is anything other than yes shot you ask ask why. But if he does then you don't want him on your team and you try to trade him bringing some pieces and people who actually want to be there. What is clean house me like ooh elite starts at the head coach and so I think everybody with the disgruntled guys on the team? Who have shown they may want to be? There may not want to be so. I think we all agree on the head coach. She is the the the reason I asked. The question is the clean house was doesn't screen clean. Awesome built around Baker building around Baker means giving him towns wide receivers achievers means giving him talented players. The the the browns have to flashing red light problems this year. None of them involve the kid formerly with the yellow hair they are the head. Coach is in over his head and the quarterback has been a disaster now. People want to blame Baker's performance formats on the arrival of Odell Beckham. You can't do that. I think you would look foolish knowing that anyone's no no right so I so the point being Baker stats this year are undeniably bad. You cannot win in this league. It is a coach of Quarterback League with sub-standard coaching while. Also having substandard. Your quarterback play you. Can I would argue the packers for a few years. One with what. I considered substandard coaching with great quarterback. Play this year. The Patriots are winning with Substandard quarterback playing great coaching. If you have both you're a disaster right now. The browns are disaster. Baker is to has only three quarterbacks have have more to quarterbacks having more picks he's twenty eighth in completion percentage he's thirty ambassador rating like you. That's a disastrous. Can't build a team around Odell. You have no choice but to build the team around Baker. Of course I I. I'm not I'm not arguing. You build around del. What I'm saying is that we we are to me? We are searching for reasons why this has gone poorly for the browns when it is very obvious. The coaches in over his head and the quarterback DOC has regressed massively. It is John Dorsey job to find the coach. That can either hire a staff that can get Baker back on track or who individually. Julie can get Baker back on track. That is the answer to the questions. Here is get the quarterback on the trajectory. He was last year. You hired this coach because because of that and that alone and it's been a total failure to go along with all the other stuff that you're mentioning the distractions caused by the head coach. which should never happen? Even if you you find a deepest a coach Ron Rivera. You need offense coordinator exam. That's a quarterback that can get back to fundamentals for Baker. The thing I would do in Cleveland it would be pretty simple. We're not gonNA AH depend on you to throw the ball thirty five forty times a game. We're going to run the ball thirty five times with Nick sub. We're going to get you some action. We're going to want you to be more accurate than you've been in the past. We can't throw a seventeen touchdowns and seventeen interceptions. We're GONNA put you in a situation where now you can get the ball out of your hands. We want you to be a point guard instead of the score. Are we want you to be the guy that we can depend on to be accurate and down the field that's it. We don't need you to win every football game right now. Baker has thought process that he has to win every game for this team. That's not what he needs to be at this point. It's Baker trying to do that. But it's also Freddie kitchens trying to make everybody happy and feeding his big name wide receivers and hearing in his head constant Consta- reported we gotta get Odell involve we gotta get and building game plans around trying to go out there and get involved when maybe the best thing for. The team is to give the ball to chop and let them run. That's why he's over his his head because I think he's listening to all these different voices but when you talk about cleaning house you are when you fire the head coach Clinton. You're getting new. Offense scored do defensive coordinator. You it's going to be and you need to you need you need a new culture. Somebody's going to get a little more. DISCIPLINED IS GONNA get more buy in and then you know offensively defensively you want a system system that is going to elevate Baker Mayfield. Look at Jared Goff his rookie season. It was thus guys bust. Those guys would have wasted wasted drastic. Sean mcvay comes in their massive turnaround. Super Bowl you know. APPEARANCE FOR JARED GOFF GETS A new contract. You have to have somebody that's going to build a system that fits Baker Mayfield skillset whether it's the head coach or the offense and someone who can teach. HBO Baker this year as soon as you get the snap. Don't just frontier right stand in the Damn e looks aired the first time in his whole grueling football. He looks scared and tentative this year. He never looked at Oklahoma. He did not look like that his rookie season improve his skill set at some point. His individual athletic ability got him. Pass the home in early on any athlete he has. He has to be a better skilled player. He can do that. He can chant inch B dubs one play little inner out okay. Last night drew brees led the Saints Deigns to their eleventh win of the season on his historic night but the packers seahawks forty niners. All have eleven wins well any winter out on the Saints Being Amy Best Team in the NFC outmanned we fall in love with what we just saw it. It was impressive and it was a great story for drew brees but are we forgetting the defense giving up forty nine points the same as the San Francisco Forty niners including that game winning drive Garoppolo just right down the field like it was not a big deal I think the seahawks are the teams the NFC stuck with us from day one. I'm sticking with them through thick and thin. You know. I'm in now have been accused before viewing something and loving whatever I saw last and so I saw last night a saints team that pensively looked unstoppable. They have the ability to run drew. brees looked better than he ever had. But deep getting things going in I think that deepens can win especially if teams have to go through. The superdome doesn't mean that I necessarily think this team's going to make the super bowl because where the how the playoff seedings fall is critically really important to that but right now they're the most complete team in the NFC. They went five without drew. brees they have a legitimate running game. You mentioned Michael Thomas Without question one of the five best receivers and football us that he might have the best hands. All the deep into the only question I have for the saints is they lost rankings and Davenport along that defensive line didn't hurt him last night could it hurt them in the postseason possible right now. They're the most complete team in the NFC. Swimming I'd sticking with the saints. A big reason for drew brees success. This past few you seasons has been his star wide out. Michael Thomas Thomas just eleven catches shy now of breaking Marvin Harrison's record for most catches in a season with one hundred Jeff forty-three Danny winter out on Thomas Breaking the record this week I am in on this one. We've all documented how it's the only weapon really that drew brees has to go with. Plus you've got Malcolm Butler out for the season. Dorie Jackson's missed a couple of game games recently. Who knows if he's even play here for the titans so they've got some issues on the defensive offensive side of the ball? I think he's going to get it as well. I think when you think about drew region saying he doesn't like the glory things like that but he always has his eyes or records. Mike Mike Thomas Guest this record. Next week he's had eight games with double digit catches. This happens this coming week. I'm out that it happens this week. I'm not quite as certain as all of you do that. It's going to happen at all. Only because I mean if Marvin Harrison Calls Michael Thomasson says I don't want you to break my record if I'm Michael Thomas. I'm listening to Marvin Harrison. Whatever he says he would need eleven to do it this week? More likely in week. Seventeen us more than six times this year. they're more last night. I maybe on factoring in a Marvin Harrison math here that you guys are not but I am out on it happened. I got ya one in Rome. The Carolina Panthers Reportedly Early Bench Kyle Allen for third. Rookie quarterback will greer. which now has some speculating? That maybe the panthers will indeed bring back Cam. Newton next exceed Danny winner out on Carolina bringing back Cam. I've done like a full one. Eighty on this one was out on earlier in the season. Two and maybe he's John Rear. I was in yeah. I still think that's a question. Because of his health I think it's whereas he health wise but if he's healthy if he passes all the medical tests he feels good enough to go and the way things have transpired with Kyle Allen I don't think will greer is going to be the answer either. He's cheap bring him back for one more year and Carolina bringing a coach. WHO's GonNa utilize utilize them and say you know what I'm GonNa buy into Cam? Newton it see if you can give it a run. Twenty million dollars is a bargain in today's environment. I'm in as well. It's going to depend on his health if he could come back healthy. I would just drag quarterback like you mentioned but I will use cam up as much as I could allow this young quarterback to mature behind Cam and then use your young quarterback in the next couple of a years. I have not moved to one hundred eighty degrees on this. Where I've been the whole time I fell in love with Kyle is a four game winning streak? Guess what guy alone it turned into back into. Kyle I went to multiple colleges. The Guy who went undrafted. The guy was cut twice before he caught on with the panthers. He obviously when they said Ed in theory. Moving on from Cam Newton. I sat here and told you. They will be in the market for a quarterback again a year from now guaranteed there are now realizing that guy along couldn't even make it through the year before they're like okay. He's not the answer there now to will greer of course keep Cam Newton all the narrative surrounding cam has been as if he's a pending free agent. I would be anxious about giving Cam Newton a long term contract extension or a new contract because of the injury stuff but twenty million bucks is nick. Foles is money in this league. Of course you keep Cam Newton. Of course I'm in Nanan. Narrative is changing. We're allowed to do that right. I apologize the Carson Wentz before Karachi has stayed the exact same all year. Long all right. The cowboys choice picked up a big win Sunday over the La Rams. It was their first win this season against a team with a winning record after the game cowboys legend and Fox. NFL analyst Troy Aikman Quinn. Who hasn't shied away from criticizing this team? This season talked about just how dangerous Dallas can be. This was their best team win. And I think Dak Prescott said it best. It was a very complimentary win and I think the takeaway from this is that what we knew coming into the season quite honestly if this. His team is playing the way that they're capable plane. We know that they can move the football really against anybody. We know that they have the ability defensively to just smother opponents much like they did here tonight against the Los Angeles Rams they can play with anybody and that's why is bad as the season has looked at times. It's not so far fetched that thank that. They can't can get hot at just the right time and anything can happen. They just got to get in. I know team next week against the Philadelphia. Eagles obviously is a big start. Just that just escape first and then you should be offset Nikki think an NFC front runners should be dreading the dallas cowboys in the playoffs. No I'd be the the opposite of that licking my chops. I'd be excited to play them. I the the cowboys are Cowboys Eagles. Whoever wins this this is just massive? Division vision is going to be the worst team in the postseason neck and neck with whomever the last wildcard out of the AFC is used in. Pittsburgh might get in Pittsburgh with duck. Hodges or Mason Rudolph the quarterback then you could argue you know an eye test but of the twelve team gets in Dallas if they get in either gonNA. It'd be the eleventh or twelfth. You want to play that team. You would rather have a by if you're one of the top four teams in the NFC. The next best thing is going to Dallas and whooping up on this football team I the I I heard what Troy said which is peaking at the right time. We'll define peaking because they were at at the need. They were at the ultimate low point of their season the day before the rams game coming off three straight losses where you against New England. When I didn't think they played that poorly actually against doing the offense couldn't get anything going? They had the ridiculous tripping calls go against them but who cares about it because actually benefit the Patriots. So let's not have a key officiating controversy and then but Jerry Jones was angry about that game and then he really should have been angry about the pills game on Thanksgiving and should have been livid about about the bears game the following Thursday. You'd ten days to prepare for another team that I was a little fraudulent and the rams that was like oh are they peaking now no they are who they were through the first twelve weeks. The cowboys are who they've been Danny through fourteen weeks a team with immense talent that is under achieved consistently that's had six opportunities -tunities to put it all together a good team and has done it precisely. Once in order for them to go on this run they would have to do it again. Next week against Philli and then again in the wildcard weakening into the San Francisco Seattle. It's not going to happen. You make excellent points but you guys are crazy. You're crazy. Tell me a coach. That would say we're excited about having the opportunity to stop the number one ranked offense yards per game the number one ranked offense. It's yards per play the number two passing offense the third-best on on I on third downs. This offense is scary now. I get what you're saying. But if and that's a big if if they continue this momentum and I might be sound like I'm talking about both sides of my mouth 'cause I kind of like the eagles with the points but if they somehow win the division Asian and they play well these last two games I guarantee you. Nobody wants to go to Dallas to face the type of weapons they have they have a top tier running back Ezekiel uh-huh Elliott they have an MVP candidate member at the beginning of the season we were all in on Dak Prescott who can make plays with his legs he does present some problems. Amari Cooper Amari Cooper is a top five wide receiver in the NFL. As far as what the threat is to what he can do to you. That is a scary proposition. Oh by the way their defense is top. Ten and a lot of categories boys coaches would be dreading having to go on the road to face that team all right so let's look at the eight teams that we believe. Let's assume Dallas. When's the tuition Are going to be division winners. You Have Baltimore New England. Houston Kansas City Dallas New Orleans Green Bay and Seattle right so those are eight division winners. Not let's just pretend. The playoff format was the best team. That doesn't win and division gets to pick which place they go to Right So San Francisco you can pick those eight guess what their top pick is Dallas but all the teams you could face Dallas too but put it this way if they do you think they would be. I don't think that I think it was the eagles they would say. Sign US up. Let's go we'll we'll go to Philadelphia we. Are I think with the cowboys. They're they're more nervous saying men we're getting screwed by the system because we have to go on the road with eleven or twelve. Well he shouldn't be shy of but I do think it makes them nervous. I do not think they WANNA WANNA play this. Dallas cowboys came well if they win. Sunday eighteen is going to have to play this Dallas cowboys team. I was all excited because I was like must've been watching first thing I said the game. Thank you for listening to the first things first.

Ever in my entire life time stood still uh-huh for what felt like five minutes But it was a three hour. Show thank you so much. Thank you so much John. He's in on March. Twenty six makeup show the rescheduled day's GonNa cancel it against Hapoel. Let's get to this conversation with one of the most handsome humans on Earth joining us now is a man. WHO's the the voice of College football? I've got a chance hanging around him. A little bit more this fall to watch them interact with humans and share his brain on a weekly basis has been nothing short of fantastic. You can see him on College Game Day you can hear them on the prime time game on. ABC Ladies and gentlemen the handsome former quarterback Kirk. Mark Herbstreet. Man Are you so. Why don't you come up with the idea to jump into the server? I know you're busy you and your crew and we've been fortunate enough to have you guys on the last Two of the last last three weeks but I wanted to ask you people like when did you know he's going to go jump in the river I go. I don't think I really knew he said something you said something to me on the Octagon John and I was like I said what you're talking about it. I said I'm going into the BRAZOS. I'm like okay I did I said Hey Kirk I think fuck going into the Brazos River. We're like ten seconds to air. You're like excuse we get like a thousand people around us thinking about this. Look at him. I shake his hand necessary this morning. I think I'm going to the Brazos today. And he's just tackling you started tackling and then we're back on air right after it's like a pretty serious video piece. I was like I almost ruined everything right there. You gotTa Keep my mouth a you've been you've been awesome. I I told you when I takes after. It's hard to come into an established. Show like that. You know fuel like where do I fit in. These guys have been doing this one hundred years the greatest this thing is you just for being you. You know it's been. It's been a breath of fresh air. We hope to have yawn. Hopefully every week as far as I'm concerned but we Lemon telling you forever. Forget celebrity picker Bro. You you you gotTa Roll you gotTa Roll on the show now off the boys will. Ah Obviously obviously big fan of the show. I told you this whenever we talked to you last time. That's on an every single football facility across America so I literally watched every single show. Because I'd be hanging out in the training room. Everybody else is watching film coming back in going back out. I used to watch College Game Day in its entirety with our athletic trainers in our equipment managers so the first morning that was on College Game Day I get a picture from one of the athletic trainers is named Kyle in. It's picture of everybody watching with me up on the screen right right. And you're like you made us proud buddy and it was like a reminisce back to the old days and then this past weekend equipment manager froggy. He was like man. We used to talk about what you would do. If you ever got on today. was you jumped into a river. Deep was that rip four feet four. The Kirk didn't do scouting report on. Did I took notes. I ask personnel. I did the whole thing. I S old captain of the ship as soon soon as I got on I was like how deep is this thing and he was like eight feet. I'm like ball money so then I go upstairs and I guess there was a full conversation that was happening down on the main deck. It was nowhere near eight to ten. The one the one producer screams to another producer goes does he know that it is too shallow to jump off of the top. And I won't live right. He's that guy was saying that that message never got relays. So if I didn't do the BELLYFLOP Kirk Right. The bellyflop flop. I think. Save me because there's more body mass kind of because I think only one down like a foot. Maybe Yeah my head POPs up so quick. I could have done that too for the water. So let's remember that for future game name days that was. That was a great moment. I belly flop was good theater but it turns out it. Saved your life the purpose if you see when I got in there because you can't see the bottom because it was a bit muddy by the way felt good to get that muddy river water back in my mouth like Pittsburgh whenever where kids felt good to get back into the grid of it. I was like you see me start flailing my arms because my boots were filling up with water and just starting to suck me down so I'm like Oh my God. Oh my God I'm not going to have to do this. And then all of a sudden I feel something. I'm like. Wait a minute that is way too low and I stand up. The thing was like right here like Oh my God just dumped into a Katy classic your show so much fun that is. There's no other show like that show. I don't like ever go with. What's cool? Is the live crowd. You know the the. The crowd is so Authentic and it's it's it's a big part. We try how to make a big part of the show. You can feel you know what I'm talking about you you. You're down there for that twitter show before you can kind of feel the energy kind of building and growing and and then you know by the time. The show's going on It's no different because I've talked with guys who were artists to go round and play different venues whether it's big stadiums or arenas and and they're all sold out you know a lot of these guys so arenas but they said sometimes you get to a certain arena or certain stadium venue in kind of feeds back to you the crowd and the energy feeds back. And I think you could feel that the shows you've been on especially we were over a memphis. You could see what they mean when they say that and I think our crowd were just so lucky. 'cause live studio shows the. NFL's tried it. Some of these other shows tried is just kind of like people randomly standing behind the guys on TV. And they're just trying to get on. TV Our crowd is this is like it's hard to describe but it's real energy and we appreciate it. It's a festival that's exactly. It feels like it feels like a football festival in everybody. It has positive. I've just like in a music festival. Everybody has positive odd because there's a lot of hope and optimism because the game hasn't happened yet everybody thinks they're going to win game days there. It's a big game so it's a good day. It's just like it's a perfect mix of people having a good night and early morning people wanting to support their team and also they feel like they have to show up for their school like if their school doesn't show up. They look bad because game days a staple almost of Americana yeah. Yeah and I think they look at opportunity to send a message to the country that game days here and this is our chance to to Kinda celebrate our team and show everybody that we love our team better than everybody else does so every week it seems to be a different kind of flavor different field this week. We Got Ohio. That was awesome. I this week you got you got to study up all your different trying chance and all the different things they do is all you need to. Oh yeah believe me I did. We did a stand up show show over in Columbus just a few months ago. Best venue we were at the entire time was awesome and all of a sudden out of nowhere if you feel a little dry spot. Oh you do trump junior the screaming dawson the I. I think he does the I two. I think that's a big deal right whole thing. Oh my God that's like i. I think there's been you have to look it up. I think there's been more be four or five people in the history of of a script. Ohio that dotted the eye. That have not been Aban Dan member. It's like Woody Hayes John Glenn I can't remember it's very like I said three or four people. Bever does astronaut. Sounds like a good goal for you this week now. I don't think this is the time maybe next time. But for you going back to the place that you played at obviously you're so far removed now you've done so much college football so you got people judging you from everywhere because you're either too hard on their team or too nice to another team or whatever it is But going back to Ohio state is it special it has to be. Oh Yeah I love going back you know I I think the Not just being a former player just so you know my background. My Dad played there. He's a captain there that way. Back in nineteen sixty. And then he coached with Woody Hayes so I grew up with that and then I became a player that I ended up becoming a captain for myself so despite what the lunatic saipercent fringe will tell you that. I hate to say state in my veins pains. Love the Buckeyes always have but I got a job to do like you. Do you know we we subject you. You break down the game you have to be fair and objective when you when you break break things down. The funny thing is now states really really really good at anytime anytime you say anything positive about homer. Yeah you're homer you know of course but yeah going back to Columbus and hopefully you're there this week you guys you'll see ridiculous energy it's an early kick And it'll will be electric atmosphere especially always is but especially when Penn state in those all White Younis come into Columbus it tends to go up a notch or two. So it'll be as good as soon as you'll see this entire year. The House the bus even the country. LSU is so damn good l. LSU their resume. I mean you follow at Lsu. What they've done offensively is ridiculous? Joe Borough those receivers Joe Brady coming over from the saints. That that's insane What they're doing but Ohio state offense in defense I duNNo? I've been following Ohio state for a long time. I don't know if I can remember a team. That's been this good. This consistent on both sides of the ball going back to week one all the way through I mean Ryan Day imagine filling the shoes urban Meyer on on doing it this way I mean it's it's been it's I mean you'd expect a bad half a game game you're just trying you don't show up ready you know how it is. It's hard to be ready every week. It you you expect them to show up and be flat and they have it like every single week take. This team has been playing a football and so in that regard. It's easy to say they're the most complete team in the country by far but but LSU's offense and the fact that Lsu's beat Alabama. They being Auburn and Florida. Texas Hard to argue with what they've accomplished as far as their resume. Okay so let. Ah We explain to people who aren't big college football fans on their. NFL Fans Culture above the College Football Playoff Committee that meets tonight their rankings will come out tonight on ESPN. It's can't wait to hear what happens. Always by the way a lot to discuss. Whatever this is what is that? It's a group of how many humans go in. Where and who are they and then they come out and Bang Bang? This is our subjective feeling on who should be in the top four not for NFL fans the the don't follow the college game First of all I don't know how you You you follow the NFL game until we get to the postseason. I'll tell you watch you watch two one o'clock NFL game unless it's your team. Holy Shit at born a man but the college game It used a great word subjective because NFL if you finish nine and seven and you're tied for the division lead got like five or six different tiebreakers and eventually somebody wins the division and college. You Try to win your your conference. But it's subjective but when it comes to getting to the top four for the playoff and everybody looks at this four team playoff to me what Minnesota did last week was. Part of the playoff season is really a playoff. Yeah I know you're row the boat. I know you're down after that one was stuff I wanNA after the cultural company pretty hard and then it is that boat. Yeah Yeah and Baylor Baylor with down but the reality here is you know. It's like twelve or thirteen some people they they're former some former athletic directors. You got former coaches different administrators. Just if there's different people that are in there too subjectively try to look at different analytics. You have coaches in their look at the eye test and try to come together every week with who they think the four best teams and then the team at five six seven and eight throwing things at the TV. And throwing things at you and me and everybody's upset about everything and that's the beauty body of of college football but yeah these these rankings. Every Tuesday obviously they don't really matter until we get to the final rankings the first weekend in December. That's official at that point it's great talking fodder though. Oh Yeah it is. It moves needle Kirk somebody who lives on the Youtube now as a youtuber. Rankings and me reacting to move the needle. Oh my God yeah. People look at this like Winston was five in the first man. You you gotTa beat the man. I am sick. I'll just subjective group of men and women in there who refuse to acknowledge a Clemson is the national champion. uh-huh they lost. No how do you have outside the boy up. You gotta be kidding. Me that moves the needle. That right exist kirk boy that that little clip right there. That moves the needle Kirk on the Internet. And I want to move the needle. Just talk about Alabama and and where do they fit Should they be in. Should they not be in. Because no matter what you say you're gonNA alienate half the audience of you. Say Oh yeah. They're one of the best for your. You're dead to say they should not be. You're dead the people in the south. So if you WANNA move moved the needle just talk. Alabama 'cause I G- ALABAMA'S GONNA end up being left out Woah because in that clip that somebody that Kurt Herbstreet Force College Football Alabama's good football. Did you hear him. And you know it's because the two of them is that a real love. I fell two years ago. Alabama's just Alabama right. They got all these first rounders. They lost all two years ago. They didn't even go to the SEC. Championship in shape. And I was one of the guys that said I don't really care that they're not in the SEC championship. They're still one of the best four. They gotta go. They got to be in the the final four and they ended up getting in over big ten champ. Ohio state here just personally doesn't it doesn't feel like that. They they don't feel even with that defense is not. They're young. They best player Dylan. Oh and Moses it out for the year at the beginning of the year they just not gelled with all those youngsters on that side of the ball they got a great offense and and with two was in there in those receivers are dynamic hammock but with his ankle injury and with the way they're playing defense and of course now he's out for the year even with him I felt when they lost to Lsu they'd be on the outside looking in. And and I still feel that they're going to end up staying about where they are. And if they blow Auburn out there at least in the discussion but I think either either the PAC twelve champ either Oregon Utah or the or Oklahoma as the big twelve champion. We'll go ahead of Alabama. Wow because Oklahoma has a loss US laws Oklahoma potentially gets in there over Alabama. That's crazy. Let's talk about Alabama though. They lost a heisman winner. They Lost Austin national champion. They lost the name that has become synonymous college football at this moment. Old Tool is out for the year with a hip dislocation which I guess. It's been different than the Bo Jackson injured because they were able to solve a quicker because science. Shout out to them figuring that out quicker for us but to leave is a big deal Alabama. How do you think you're going to affect the rest of college football though with to First of all. I'm just glad to hear those I reports everybody's saying it's the same injuries below Jackson. The only thing it sounds like similar was the having the hip Dislocation with like you said technology today the fact that you're able to get it back in within five five minutes has a lot to do with the blood flow evidently and and the fact they had a today this morning. They had the procedure. So everything I've heard has been very very positive for him. which is if you've ever met him? One of those guys you meet him. You're like I could be a better person I can do. Tis You. He's like the last guy and you probably beside yourself probably played guys all that if you walk through the facility facility. Every trainer every doctor every assistant coach every second at everybody had they couldn't find one person to say something bad about him and that's hard to find in a locker room with with a bunch of football players. He's that guy and so you know it's devastating to see him go down but as far as how impacts the game like I said I I think they going to Auburn. Could be tough for them. I don't know if it necessarily affects Bama lawyer would have maybe last year the year before when they were clearly one of the best teams. I Nick Right now. They're on the fringe as I just said a being one of the better four teams but I think it opens up the door for For the big twelve and for the PAC twelve to possibly get their champion at the end. And you know they've kind of most people nationally don't give the PAC twelve a whole lot of love and respect and you know they they potentially have two teams in in Utah and Oregon. They're GONNA meet with one loss that I think to his injury and Bama being on the outside kind of helps them out. I think the PAC twelve pack twelve after dark. They play insulate. NOBODY GETS TO WATCH EAST COAST BIAS. That type of stuff happens for real for real. Yeah it's real the CAN I ask you a question. So how do you do. Your podcast has as much as you travel. How how do you that out have you and your crew? You just travel everywhere and and just because sometimes you're standing up doing. Yeah what's the deal. So like we just got off a plane fifteen minutes ago from New York where we did get up and then and the live show hop on a plane back to hear immediately into studio in Indianapolis to chat with the Voice of College football then.

Someone say probably should read the ad before you speak about it into a microphone for hundreds thousands of people that would be probably the right move but I got rejected from broadcast boot camp three times three times Adams three times.

You're not in make Santa Proud tagline conversation fiction so are you married you have kids. I mean how busy I am very busy. I'm engaged and I got six pets. It's but when I get home the animals are they. They're very forgiving of the schedule. You decided to see me my ladies about done with full the ladies about done with football season. She's it'd be home for forty eight hours just one time at some point. I'm like it's so. So how does big time wrassling come into into. They're doing some wrassling. The other was doing commentating on wrassling in the offseason. I hope something will come to be with that. I just gotTa find time to work out. You know I need to get like pollock has at incredible discipline of not eating bad things grass and water. I'm not into that. I'm sorry I'm going to have a little bit. Yes I just had pizza today. It's been thank you. It's been impossible to like actually really get in shape. My plan was like all right. I'M GONNA get in shape through football season because I'm working so much I'm just GonNa die. It's good for my body. It's good for my energy. Then we're in New York and I just walked past a place like I'll take two of those pepperoni. I don't know how anybody says no to it. I don't know how people do it. I don't know how politics has done that with his. Here's the thing when pollock looks in a mirror. He sees two hundred ninety pounds because he was sloppy. He got sloppy late in his career and he tried to because he played when he was all American teams. Like two fifty to fifty five but he I think he looked at himself. Maybe as a twitter because he was like a an outside linebacker slash defensive end then he dropped all the way up to like two ninety then he got back down to like two sixty two seventy so I think when he looks at himself he sees his big guy so I don't know if he's goals one ninety five. I don't know what he's going. It's pretty lean. He is thin. We I was looking at them up on top of that pontoon boat. He had no belt on. I was like man. If I didn't have a belt on my entire pants would just fall. Yeah he as we just showed a picture of is leaning out I mean he is but just Chisel Chisel I told him I said He said something about kickers. And I said I'll snap you fund these people and he said you better you better bring a lunch the layers and then I started looking them up. You know that dude at a thirty eight inch vertical at one point in his bro. I'm telling you right now if pollock were to play tight end because we we have to do some of these these or these companies we work with. We do a flag football at the National Championship. And I'll be the quarterback and he'll be one of my guys throw to and he's going up one handed. Catch Tony Gonzales. Going up as I'm like. Why would you a defensive Andrew at defensive tackle you you made a zillion dollars dollars and probably would still be playing if you were tied now? He's a freaky freaky athlete for sure. What about you? How was your playing style? What style? Yeah Yeah I was kind of. I would have really enjoyed today. This whole run pass option threat to run threat to throw. Yeah back then if if you played in my era you were more of a veer option guy or your dropback guy. I was more of an option got. We ran wishbone. When I played so when I came out of high go into college I had to learn about the game? I had to learn about sitting in the pocket. I was more of a dual guy. More more of a runner. Oh athlete Herbie out there. I didn't know you had. Yeah how I didn't know that I should have known by the Pat White. Hey retire five by the way retire five. Everybody agrees retire five. I should've known by the way the suits that you wear that. You're a freak athlete. You have you ever seen dresses. It's outrage impeccable. Oh my God we went up on. I went up on the first time I saw suit. This guy I don't know who the Taylor is. I don't know if you're creating it yours. No no no no. You're super team. Your soup game is up there at the top television division. I think yeah when I moved to Nashville Eddie. George Guy Played with the highest state. He's like man. I got hooked up with this Mateo. This guy that helps me out so I was like I'm in so so from that point on Roy the last eight or nine years he he he not always do it. He'll come over on Tuesday before I leave and he'll just pull everything out. I have nothing nothing to do with anything. I just put it. Wherever he says the wear I wear? He's doing a great job because he those bracelets to you had this big brexit on call. Yeah Yeah that was when I knew like vinnie started doing to Vinnie. Got a new Taylor I think and then he started showing up at the at these games for road games and he would have like Gucci flipflops on with like these incredible pants and I two bracelets I was like you are killing fucking new by the way what kind of year. The colts go to the playoffs. Yeah yeah got law. Is that a lot of Jacoby. Can stay healthy. Like Jacoby percent I think is an actual difference maker in the game of Football I. I think he's a dog. You know what I mean. I think he I think he'll win the game for you. I think he's that type of guy and I think I think the culture legit. I really like him when he's playing. Also also the KEG stands sally. That team deserves a super bowl championship team. Does the cat stane celebration. Without wearing a touchdown Lombardo in mind your idea who gave him that Clinton Nelson's are pretty legendary human. I would assume that was his either. Those people partying in the background to it was a ten person. Bardy out there Yeah I love this curious because I live in Nashville. You dropped an epic line traffic cop and when you told him you probably who. I am the planner for the colts. We didn't very often. They are you guys right now. I'm looking at it. Oh Yeah you in. The Texans are going toe to toe there for the top of the division. You you got a great shot. Well Shawn Watson got his ass beat last week against the Ravens and seems like he did and that's been kind of emo through. His career is the Texans. Can't take care of me just keeps getting has asked me. I'm scared it's going to get the Andrew Luck thing where he stops enjoying the game because of how bad it gets beat up. He is an incredible talent. When data? Sweeney said this guy's the Michael Jordan football everybody kind of scoffed at them but once you get hot air it's good you got to see John. And Lamar I think he called that game or taking over the League right now. I cannot believe leave. I'm so happy for Lamar who would have thought. Think about the era when you played if you would have said that the skill sets of Lamar accents GONNA become become legendary It's one thing to try to figure out a big twelve quarterback Sam Bradford was coming out or what we see now is Tapa homes at a Texas tech who does crazy Roese times every Sunday but the mar because he was so athletic. But it wasn't the guy that's GonNa sit in the pocket lot of when he was coming out go back to the draft. Ninety eighty percent eighty percent of people said can't throw he can't make place for the pocket. Nope can't play no way. They want him to be a wide out there. Trying to move the white out now. He looks looks like he's literally playing like I don't know Pop Warner football against NFL defensive middle school football like He. He's playing by different set of rules. Then then anybody in the history of the game ever played at that position. Also he's throwing the ball well top five and passing. I mean he is. It's not the cleanest delivery. It doesn't look like that. But Philip rivers doesn't have that cleaning the delivery and he's been able to play a long time as long as the mark and drop it into a bucket. Who gives a Damn Heathrow and the other thing is when he moves you know people again to go back to the old school? NFL way of thinking well in the NFL. He's going to get hit. You can't you won't last. He doesn't really get hit he. He's he's like a slinky like he's just just able to just round under and I don't know how often do you really see him get blasted and a game okay. So here's a stat. He's been hit one hundred Jordan eighteen times a season. which is the most in the NFL for a QUARTERBACK K? He's been hit one hundred eighteen point in comparison Christian McCaffrey two hundred forty forty six times so their offense runs through him as well. And nobody's like well as crushing him able to hold up. Lamar is taking different. Hits and Christian too. I feel like he knows they're coming. He's sliding I talked about T. Y.. Hilton has this ability. Where whenever a big hits coming he has this ability to kind of get out of the way of it so I think it's still technically counts as a hit but it's not a real one lamar though? I think what they're going to tell you have to stop attempting to run people. Because you're going to have to stop that like you're at somehow you're going to have to turn that down and just go down. Because at the end of a couple runs there he was looking for contact almost and it was. I respect the hell out of what you're doing right now. But let's not let that affect everybody gals you know what I mean. And who's the O C with the Ravens. Because Wrangler who is it Greg. Roman Greg Roman. WHO's a West Coast Guy and he? He deserves a lot of credit. It for recognizing that we can win with this guy. We're going to run some option football and we're GONNA do some things that are unorthodox different from the NFL model and this kid can do it because because what it's done is it's simplified. They're passing game but bill belichick two weeks ago. You know last week against the Texans some great defensive minds. They're loading up th worried about about him running so you got eight guys in the box and then you create one one easy passes easy reads in the past game so right now you know. Knock on wood. Hopefully he can stay healthy and it's been in a lot of fun to watch him. You know hopefully you can keep going. He's a real joy to watch like. This is one of the first times in a long time like Aaron Rodgers as ability. Whenever he's playing? You WanNa Watch because you have no idea what he's GonNa do like something's pat homes in the same way. Lamar Jackson exact same way whenever he's on the field I'm like I wanna see what this dude does with the football it every single time has the opportunity to bang out the gate seal later. Yeah Yeah I I think you're right about Aaron Rodgers of course Dak Prescott with the way. He's playing Alice's alicea becoming that and I love I love Mahomes. I mean pap homes with whether it's a no look pass or it's a jump past that he throws thirty five forty yard. How howdy not win in college? What's that how did he not winning college? It seems that cliff Kingsbury doing well with Arizona. He had homes. How did that not become like a super successful operation A? It's almost like we didn't really talk about him a whole lot. I mean he was a great player. But you know how it is Kinda get to those those teams that are winning four and five games and they're kind of off the grid a little bit. He was putting up ridiculous numbers here. The thank PAT almost everybody that ran cliffs offense put up ridiculous numbers so you just did know is does he. Just another one of these quarterbacks that send that Texas tech offense or is there something special about him again. Andy Reid about Andy. Reed's background where he grew up in the coaching. Coaching Tree. With Bill Walsh and the whole west coast offense. How does he reinvent himself and say? Hey Man we got something special here. I'm GonNa Change my ways of the last thirty thirty years and I'm willing to learn and adapt and change. He runs basically big twelve offense now with with mahomes and more power to them. I think these guys who have the ability to reinvent reinvent themselves Just are able to stay with the game. and Andy. Reed's and other another great example of that Kit Alex Smith for almost an MVP. uh-huh judo Muslim had an MVP thing. Alex Smith is like all right. I finally found my home here. I'm doing good. My life was good. You had almost MVP season. I'm GonNa go have a good offseason. Airport travel a little bit by the way travel right over to fucking Washington. Do that was true and then when what happened I'm going to be the I was the first person who was like. What are they doing? This guy had an MVP season. We had a caller call indoor show or series show from Kansas and he was like Bat Mahomes is going to win the MVP next year. And I'm like get out of here dude. This guy hasn't even played yet and then he starts playing a guy called me back like two weeks in the seems like Pat Mahomes the MVP. Uh I guess whenever the the fans in even his teammates would seem in practice it was like a show. Obviously he was playing exactly like he's playing now but just in practice. I couldn't even even fathom what that did Alex Smith by the way. If you're a starter in the backup is doing that. You have to up your game like you have to or you're going to be out you're either going to up your game or you're gonNA be John. That probably helped Alex Smith by the way they play football boy. What a good decision was for them to move onto old paddy guts love Mahomes Yeah Gutsy decision but it paid off like like we said he's he's become must see TV for sure? You let you you like that. I'm not like a guy that's jumping up and down but like the combination nation Dakhla Zeke when they're healthy I I'm not a big cowboy's fan but I I don't say you. Do you want to sit dumped. They want us to dump that. That's America's Team I. Do you want to hear you. Big Cowboy's Fan. This is a Tory cowboy.

So what was your plan in the NFL. How many years did you play like fifteen? You play forever late okay. Okay as you're planning in the NFL and you're thinking about getting into media. Are you thinking all along. I'M GONNA get into WHO radio show you that I'm GonNa get into a podcast is what are you thinking. Because it didn't take you very long to build an enterprise so while I was in so pat Mac V. has been around since I was playing in the NFL. I'd emerged company that I sold tee shirts that sponsored a car and one hundred running of the INDYCAR indycar called shirts for America dotcom It was a teacher that only served Sold shirts for America for two weeks and it cost me. Two hundred fifty grand to sponsor connor dailies car in the running of the five hundred. He didn't have sponsor two weeks out from the event right. So He's Indiana Kid. Hundred hundred. Running of the five hundred. Who In blowfish was going to be there? I mean it was a big deal. Three hundred thousand people coming in the Indiana kid is who's a friend of mine didn't have a sponsor so oh I was like how much is it was like two hundred fifty thousand. Let me sleep on it so the next morning I wake up and I call her now. CFO Phil and I forget what your this is sixth year in the NFL probably the NFL. I called my CFO. Phil who's my counting. At the time I was like a star company up today he was like for what I was like We're GONNA sell shirts. What about I was like racist on the search for America's shirts for America makes a website right now so he makes it? I give give the payment to Indycar the next day and just a check like a handwritten check for two hundred and fifty grand from Pat mcfee INC that was the starter costs for shirts for America. Erica then proceeds. We're going to be donated. We lost we lost. We lost six figures worth of cash on that and we got crashed out by a Russian shirts for America. DOTCOM crashed by a Russian like fifty laps or something like a hundred laps. Okay and I didn't get tickets erase. I had to watch outside so that I had that merged company where I continued to sell shirts though after that from that company. So I did that then. I did stand up where I sold old. You know like ten thousand tickets in five ten minutes for tour where I rented the theater so the ticket so I've been doing a lot of things myself while playing in the League of entrepreneurial. Yeah kind of expected everything to happen. Not I didn't expect Game Day. I mean that's about for us. Yeah we just kinda started. There's a small business. That's why I used to be introduced as everything is small business owner. That's what we wear for a while and then we made it and it's pretty cool. It's actually pretty cool. How long have you guys? I've been out on your own doing this now. Two years year and a half year and a half year and a half and the challenging part is you get other opportunities is staying where you don't have to be exclusive to one company where you can bounce from one to the next the next. That's the tricky hurry. This has been interesting so the interesting thing was I had to go. Shake all these people's hands all these executive hands at all these places that told me no coming out so my agents had me on this handshake tour with all these executives in La New York everywhere. They're like hey you're going to have to go meet these people. I think we think you could sell you better than weekend. which all they wanted to do was introduce me? The people people say that those people could see that I wasn't just a madman base. I think what they wanted to do. So we're taking all these hands in enemies meetings people would be like. Hey would you be willing to insert name of one of my I six jobs I have right now in the fall yeah absolutely handshakes and then we'd go to the next place. Hey would you be willing to guys guys got it and then there was this one particular week where they all came back like. Hey we want to do this. We do this in at that point. You got to either you now fighter flight man. I do them all for sure in. Nobody wanted US exclusively which will be a cool conversation down the road or business a partnership with somebody. But I've got a chance chance to kind of work with everybody you know. It's been a lot of fun but it's been busy as fuck. Yeah Yeah for sure. Well you guys crushing. It's been been a lot of fun to have you not just game day but everything you touch man you guys. Are you guys got growing right now. Well we're a bunch of dumb acids and some points do something you love by the way. It's cool I mean. Hopefully all you guys in there in the room. They're loved what they do but there aren't a whole lot of people that actually love what they do. Well I think I think also people who you think that people do what they love they think that okay since it's what you love you're not working your ass off. It's like no because I love it. I'm actually working harder. I think that's kind of the thing. So like exhaustion real thing you could sleep but for two or three hours a night in certain weekends or certain nights and like be okay because you love what you do does game days game days. I'm running on Lake. Probably four hours of sleep each time but as soon as I get there. I'm just like all this is the coolest thing ever like. Hey Body figure it out. We got time to go it is. It's awesome I'm enjoying the hell out of the how'd you get into TV. I get into local radio for about a year or two in Ohio in Ohio I got I got done playing and started to do. Local radio. May twelve thousand dollars a year college. Twelve Jesus College scholarship check. I thought I was like really rich. Head couple roommates and I. I have done that really forever Joy Doing Talk Radio Did afternoon drive in Columbus for about fifteen years but my first year to do sideline reporting pro pro state radio and Eddie Georgia's when he was running the gone with a heisman and I kept bumping into Jack Route who's down to the sidelines. Every game and he'd see all my radio equipment my headphones. What are you doing radio for? You gotta put GonNa do some TV so he kept telling me that I'd finally just put a fake taped together. with through an empty Ohio Stadium February did a couple of fake reports. Because I not the experience I asked Eddie George Enjoy Galloway who college players at the time. They're getting ready to go to the NFL. L. To come in I created a show called Buckeye corner and we did about ten or fifteen minutes with those two guys. I just trying to get anything I could do to put a tape together. I didn't know what it was but I had a couple of guys that gave me an idea. No agent so I just put all that on tape and Senate. ABC Sports in ESPN and never heard back from ABC sports at ESPN Asked me to come in for an audition and they had a new TV station coming out called ESPN two years ago. Oh and they ended up hiring to do sideline reporting for the for the first for the first year which was nineteen ninety five season and why the greatest thing is. They're they're offering me the job over the radio and or over the phone and they're like we're GONNA pay eight hundred fifty dollars a game as you're talking. I'm like writing eight fifty and they said we'll do fifteen games like eight fifty two thousand dollars here. The one near. Yeah that sounds like a deal a deal to me the thought of you creating a fake show to cut a clip to mail to somebody. So welcome back to the weekly Buckeye Corner. I'm Kirk herbstreit alongside. Eddie George ever fucking heard that's hilarious executives that'd be like Buckeye Corner. How did we not hear this the last one now? You're the voice of College football. That's a real thing. The game needs a comeback to get. Oh man does it ever tweet it got a lot of action. Did they respond to you. Yeah yeah they did you know. There's still some things I guess that it has to do you know. Hopefully it'll happen but I don't. I think it's a done deal. My guess would be depending on how the NFL PA moves will dictate how quickly it may get done. Get I'm guessing a year to two years But there's still a lot of work that needs to be done for it to happen plies the NFL PA have any say in something happening with the NCAA. Aa I I have no idea. I think it has something to do with once name and likeness gets goods cleared officially with the way. I think I don't know I. I do a little bit of homework and report back but I see this weekend.

There's some days I feel like a like okay. This stuff all seems to be right in my particular. Won't I'd try to pitch colts talk in there. It was like a culture back by the way. They're like okay so I had to slip that in your conversation though I enjoy that stuff in Dan and rex are such an electric coop and Greeny and Al do a great job of navigating the Combo I enjoy a lot mimicking Dan or I don't know if people notice this. But you mimicking Orlovsky ski with your hands when he goes. Bruce thing is next level because I don't think he knows you're doing it either and then he started doing it to you when you're about to learn he's a good time Danza. Some heat today because of the whole thing about Since two thousand three and two thousand three the Patriots won the Super Bowl so it was like for me. It was just a piece of information that I looked up last week. That just happened. Nobody sitting on the tip of my tongue. Golly dummy lost gee if you play a quarter team zero point it's ask Lobski and all about the Patriots Bob out the end zone. I get to see his mentions. There isn't a lamer group of people and the people that are tweet. Nothing coming at him and everything's about him run out of the back of the end zone and all that I mean he did have an interesting look those glasses and the sport the issue was his shoes matched his sport coat. So if you saw his outfit I think it got tied together a lot better but since he's sitting at a desk that make sense tough loss in general like people to see a glimpse of nearly saying he's awesome is very awesome by the way. Not a lot of quarterbacks have been in the League along time can take back and forth. You know what I mean not a lot of joy him. He's really GONNA call it call in college football ballgames yes. He was sitting in that Death Valley dinner and Clemson in the crowd with seniors. He goes out. The most exciting moment is life after marrying his in his kids. Or whatever over I almost is going on that. This morning I was gonna most exciting moment. Your life was paid. This was awesome pattern. Most exciting moment of your your wife. They'll come on Dan. Come on Danny boy. Dano I like him. I like rex to practice. He's slimming down. He's the cans. Yeah he's his suit. This morning I walked in five forty five am gave me a little pat on. Shore is a lot of space in that suits or either. That's an old suit from back whenever he was monstrous or he is slowly toiling away which could be case good for him. He looks good though. I think it was very good. He must be not going back to coaching nick. Mangold said Eh. Fat Wreck's comes out when whenever we starts coaching mangled said But every single time. There's a potential job talk about. I think rex like every time I wanna be like rex. You'd be good head coach or when you're damn right wasn't good. Head coach. He was he was was in the Patriots Division which is different went to see championships. The sanchis Gillette to in the playoffs. We lost those championships championships. But got there. Nobody else gets them there. Though to the colts and steelers really. Yeah I was there for US freezing. You played great. Yeah I didn't. I didn't do. Shit tackled Antonio Mortar. Maybe need me in the face. Badjao take that. I can't believe they fired him. For Neilan Racist Yeah. I think you'd be good head coach somewhere somewhere. I like being around him and he starts telling stories. Because Damian what he was there yesterday Damien Woody played for him so they start telling stories about what it was like. In the whole thing it was awesome he wrecks goes daming. Tell them about whenever we played REX. Like this like this moment I forget what team it wasn't Davis at all your tone axo in practice I guess. Rex told him he was like told the offensive line. He was like you guys are the team and whenever we need a game winning Something I I want you to point at where we're going to run the ball and we're going to run there and we're GONNA win the game. That's our team like that's our team or whatever so came down to a game where it was like fourth quarter. They need the first down. The game was over. Whatever in on film Damien Woody in the other guy right before the play like pointed where they were headed that point rate at the guy that they're about to double team ran right behind signed him? I down ended. The game. Didn't tell rex until wreck saw the film the next morning it was like these motherfucking. Awesome just thinking of wrecks. It's like just talking over there on the offensive line side of the ball. Like you know demoralized. Somebody if you point right where we're going and then we win the game right. They're probably just said it. In like just or whatever and and then Damien woody and a guy like in that moment when most people could potentially be typing like we're gonNA ready for real. Yeah Yeah right here. This is what we're doing that's awesome. That's the type of thing though. Your team's personality reflects your coaches personality in wreck says that very flamboyant confident personality. I think your team plays a lot better that way or you can be Bella. CHECK APU is hilarious by the way guys just cracking jokes conference join elements need Isis armies massaged. And it's like they're having fun out there. Oh I love it. I love that. He's that petty mean to. I mean he's the greatest of all time and he's being petty. I mean what more do you want that is a perfect concoction. If if you had if you're at the top of the mountain and you somehow figure out a way to put a chip on your shoulder thinking you'd have to climb higher that is magical and that's what happened with every put another chip. UH The next time we play fun I love it and I think that offense will figure itself out by the way I said aren't get up. I said all of the places. I think that offense figures itself out in that team once again again. We're back but Jacoby. Hey Jacoby percent is a game rocker. He's all the way back. Probably Imagine steelers you could probably use that twelve twenty four hundred forty yards easy as you see the place he may be. I game winning plays he made there was one with a strained. MC L. where he runs up into a crowd backpedals runs out rose to his right throws a dime totter. Thank thank you very much. There's another one where he scoots in there. I mean he's just a dog. It's what he's he's a Gamer. I'm just angry. Because there's one thing to have a bad quarterback which steelers have but now they have a bad quarterback who everyone hates makes focus to the club you have a mind wasn't the second overall pick of the drought. Aw Fuck you in the same club shoot for saying Oh a little a little bit too much. What do you think people people? Don't hate. Lisa Rudolph area postgame presser. People Take Chavan how easy the swaggie Stephen Library has no idea how. This is your quarterback. He's not my quarterback order by. He's your quarterback and seven will always be my quarterback so he might never come back. You should have beard. He's very comfortable. Yeah that's what we need. So the problem with what happened to Ben Rothlisberger. Wise Elba's all fucked up. Because he's used to doing nothing in the off season he hasn't do one thing until training camp obvious try. Yeah and people have got autumn recently for that and now he started working out in the off season and Skinny Benz got fuck elbow wrong. It's Rude Izzo career. So you think fat fat that is back and we are the whole teams. We back fat. Ben Was the guy that you sat there for that quarterback drill where he's supposed to bats and he just sat on. Just this new Ben would have been yoga all the way around we. You don't need this Ben. Pittsburgh doesn't need skinny Ben. What are we watching a Bene- training cabin who is throwing the ball in the dirt? Oh yeah he did look back. He says talk that was on the wide receivers. That's what she gets told me it was on. NFL total access and they were at the steelers camp. Rothlisburger was throwing which I was surprised. Arise because I heard Rothlisberger doesn't throw and he was just throwing these balls in the dirt. He threw one into the stands. I think now it's like Rothlisberger stinks or whatever. And they're like no no no. Oh he's just throwing them so that the wide receiver work harder. Receivers has been so good in Pittsburgh throughout the years have they. Yeah what do you mean. Have the town of Brown gone. Manny Sanders on Bryant. Gone but how were they. Good though. We're not talking about. They're still there and these guys all all come out of nowhere and all of a sudden just get good. Because they're catching balls are thrown in the dirt. Now the boys got two big ahead in that Elif get pay everybody. Who are the body boys? Aby Mike Wallis Wallace Emmanuel Sanders lay bell the no ring Mafia home. Would you guys is on these guys. They shed a lot of blood sweat and tears for the Bumblebee. The steelers we don't we don't we are not a happy bunch when winning is not happening. So you're saying the tribe ovens right. The tribe is done. Barry done lost it. Lebron's now it's going to set in settle an end that myles Garrett suspended but you still have a loss to the browns on the record. Your quarterback out balked in the head this guy. All this guy's a victim of an assault O. We're now we're don't even start. Foxy your fucking team quarterback. Stay thinking back no. He wasn't a destroyed so he fakes your mouth or you watch your mouth. And I'm Matthew Stafford. He would never fake an injury. He wanted to play that game. Doctors wouldn't let them toughest due to the NFL. You know it. I know we all know it. No other that's kind. Yeah the problem that people are having that nobody did he had broken back. I don't know if that's his heels overnight by the way he might be done for the year. uh-huh let them sit for the as well at this point driscoll down here I can remember the little girl I tell you that that that Jack Driscoll. He's looking pretty good. He'll take a eighteen yard sack on. Genders goes about that broken back to it definitely. IS THEY GIVE I ask you a question on the radio. I didn't get a real answer. Is Matt Patricia. Another given another year you have to you gotta give them at least one more. You had multiple years beyond. It's like this is the most Detroit thing ever though literally. I've said this before. They will hire a new coach. Everyone's pumped up Goo- coach Goo aware of what the camera on you. Please okay. Sorry it's very tough to multitask before but this is the most okay new coach New Era. Everyone's fired up first season. They only win three games. That's tough you know what I years as head coach. That's okay ethical year two and we'll win like six games bad draft pick. That's okay we're still getting our guys. We did our guys. We get the defensive line guys. Trey flowers I think they're paid them ten billion dollars year three You know what Matthew Stafford got hurt. We gotta give him another year. Got Another year year four. They stink fire him. We don't give this guy enough time new new coach start over once again. Jim Schwartz happen to him. Jim called all happened to Him Matt Patricia. We're going onto your what four next year. You're three next year Give him that extra. The Patriot patron the next two years. You guys need to get Nagy. What's that seems to be a Patriotair apertures going back? Josh mcdaniels went back. Patricia might go back. I make him leave for a little bit. Get some Intel around the league and then they're back to the Patriot they I. We think we've said this on a couple of beef. Slow Down in Miami right in division. Josh mcdaniels did did it. To the Broncos the broncos are good there for a bit now he's going to the lines issue is I don't know if ballot check sent anybody. He's not coming those four trucks roxy is raising his ternopil son to be Aweso deserve you got a great jaw line. Give them a break because he got your terrible. You put put him on camera. He's a terrible guy on the left right there with the beard. He's one to just said that. Opinions of his do not reflect that of his employer liked. Liked to be ness. You guys didn't even play yesterday Tony Yet. Still this week still lost this week festered. All weekend guys lost in the brand's pretty bad tough quarterback in the league so easily. I'm so fed up with that piece of Shit Best Defense we've had. How does he spend it? I don't understand it. He started it. Okay I thought about this people want mench told me he started. So what's more frustrating. As a fan. I have a team that when Matthew Scotland. I have a team that when Matthew Stafford effort healthy had a good quarterback but everything around him stunk. Yeah Zito has a team. That has a terrible quarterback but everything around him is good. What's more frustrating? I would say that you could win with quarterback great team. You can't win with a great quarterback batty. I agree. You could just have nothing at all. I golfing no probably more frustrating for Zeke. Because you're one player away from being good versus twenty one years away from being good. Yeah it sucks either. By the way that that one player that you need to be good was good at one point in his career in recent history and instead get invention fourth quarter broken hip now. That's not what they said. I was too dislocated hip there for two first half they said first half you injured his hip a player need him rain. The talking about fake injuries. I mean that's actually shaking. It came back and play the rest of the game. I don't know not the rest of the game less than that last three thirty. He did not which argue people would say. The most important most important at the time refused to go out onto the funeral off the field both ways I dunno whispered zero like yeah. She's doing this Mitchell. We talked about this going on this week. If you have another fucking nightmare we you gotta do something you see it. Did we agree on whether he was your knee. Your ankles your hip. That's what I thought. Well we're going to put this lightning Rod Chase Daniel Daniel. You'll be able to turn this bitch around just like he did when he was starting on your route. They should tell everybody. Who is your hip right? All right good luck out there. I never knows bubble guys inside line. Why can't they just face that to that? And we just hear what he said you know. Sound bubbles got it. NFL films got it for sure. NFL films has the a big boom mics. That hang down over everything so every once in a while you'll be having a conversation on on the bench boom my man what are you. Where'd you come from like ten yards Dak hanging headphones on to go there were saying yeah did you come from God been back here? You know zero. Maybe guess could win a game. If you're kicker would get off Tick talk and start hitting some feel on and all. I was going to be a kicker for them. That video did very well. Two hundred thousand imbues good for Zito by the way hit. Teach him how to kick better. That was back whenever the Deuce island or whatever it was was having he drunk kick for three hundred forty three hundred a win beer for the rest of your life or whatever. Yeah I was GONNA teach Zito how to do it. Connor was holding for terribly con very tear. I come in. I hope forum. I was going to have him kick one. And then I was going to critique right because it's hard to tell you how to kick and so you see somebody kiggins like let's work with your swing as opposed to what a actual swing supposed to be. Because you don't no no zero steps up and just bombs and I'm like yeah. You're good to yard at my first time. Cuban now traveled eight yards into a brick wall. What was that? Do you think just people want anybody from Jewish kick a football first baseball players baseball by baseball city that sit in Cuba not notoriously known for their soccer team clients all boxing and baseball pretty much so Chris so you're incredibly racist racist comments. That's just not accurate. What he's entire time I've worked with him? He said he's great at soccer. So I just I just get on with their like to get the ball. I remember at one day six months of training. You'll be the Olympic training. Oh the Olympics Start for World Cup team immediately defense on defense. Let's put that in there. Why's that digs? Because he's no no he said that I'm hummy. He definitely could not do it that. Why are you saying that now? Because he's obese fat. Oh I lost to disrespected worship ovaltine tie Schmidt for myself connor. Nick digs todd tie zt foxy and Canadian gummy. Welcome back Bob We appreciate you for listening to tweet.

But for everybody that's listening you guys are hearing something a little bit different. For one market and Seema decided to be fan lazy just kind of head out early whereas my boy nick right fat and not lazy. How many videos have you recorded for us today like eighty-seven? Yeah. A whole lot. We've been here all morning all morning.

Dot. com at checkout enter Promo Code Power Twenty five for twenty five percent off and free shipping on all domestic orders without the way. Nick. Right you are a competitive bodybuilder competitive powerlifter on top of that what I wanted to say that you stay jacked year round. Thank you. How do you do that then? Don't eat too crazy I I don't go crazy with tracking either I just try to keep some balance man eat make sure I get my protein and obviously and just intermittent fast I trained facet in big in the second half of the day. Yeah, and then I trained for both bodybuilding and powerlifting at the same time. Okay. So with that in mind. you know for me personally like I did a cut and I got in really good shape and then everyone's like Oh do you need it like put on size now like you're too skinny like let's get you a little bit bigger. Develop more muscle idea to completely wrong because as soon as I started seeing that definition away I got so depressed. Yeah. How do you avoid like getting that weird mindset of like now I gotta stay I gotTa stay shredded and then you don't and also get like really sad and depressed that you're like all that work is gone now. Well, it depends where your threshold of going crazy is. So if you're somebody who is like the second, you just go above five percent body fat you freak out that's something that's a little more psychological they're going to work on psychologically kind of detaching yourself from that. But if you're talking just realistic moderate amounts of change like you go past ten percent, maybe even into twelve percent plus range, then you start seeing like the veins and the ripples disappear. You can find a happy medium of balking slowly and making gains slowly where you don't really have to get too much heavier than that. You know you just gotTa understand that. To lift optimally, really high volume really hardcore year round and You gotTA YOU'RE GONNA have to be in a clerk surplus and then with the clerk surplus usually comes a little bit of extra fat. And just know that you're just building your building the muscle on this time and take advantage of the extra water weight and the extra fat that you have and use in the gym because the extra fat and water is going to help cushion your joints and make lifts feel so much better. So get the heavy lifting and get that overload in. You don't have to go crazy that you don't have to get up to the point where you know cheeks are looking like chipmunks and and you're gaining twenty percent body fat you can keep it pretty lean. You just have to be patient and remember that muscle gain is really really slow so. Don't be afraid to NOCCO crazies keep a little bit of Lena's going. You don't have to gain ten pounds, fifteen twenty pounds. You know just be patient but at the same time, if you lose a little bit of the ripples, that's okay. It's it's part of the process and take advantage of it in the gym and we talked about the process right of it being a little bit. On the slow side, you started lifting at a very young age. So like around what age were you when you're like Oh, this is actually starting to my I can see a difference now right I started lifting at fourteen and it wasn't. So as freshman year high school, it wasn't until probably my junior year like sixteen years old that I started finally feeling a little more filled out. Kind of being happy with the results. So first couple years there you know and. That was kind of just doing things trial and error before the age of social media in so much information being available. So even if I have been training for like six or seven years when I started powerlifting and two thousand fourteen, it was almost like relearn how to train all over again and then suddenly I made leaps and bounds just from like learning the real technicals of the power lifts, it even held my bodybuilding side of things. So learn as much as you can, but keep in mind that it's just a slow process that takes time and it takes a lot of learning learning takes time, and if you actually look at my Pr's I, I've had a decent amount of. It's easy to how many times going between them. So it's easy to look all you squad at five hundred pounds just feels like yesterday night you're doing six hundred pounds and same with the dead lift and all that. But if you actually look at the dates that I hit each of the different mountains on a lot of time in between yeah and so what what is your diet look like the like are you tracking? You know. Obviously. Like Mark Carnivore stuff. Everything's pretty low carb except for right now, he's actually implementing a lot of carbs and he's a lot of fun with it but for yourself, what type of Diet do you stick to mostly get Marshall Juicy with the carbs here? It's so much fun for us when we get to see you start to like. They're going to lean out a little bit and soon as he says Alley, we all get excited 'cause I mean you know in you know I'm still part of media. So whenever we see that right? Oh I, have a good opportunity. Pictures Jewish great. Yeah I. Don't do anything fancy right now. So when I I was doing bodybuilding show in June of two thousand nineteen, I did low carbs high fats I preferred that so close to Kito but not quite kita there are still a little bit carbs in there. And then I developed this bad binge eating issue from it, which is really con-. With people who compete. So over time I got over that binge eating. issue. By basically, just reintroducing some balance back into my daily nutrition. So I don't do anything fancy and I don't even track mackerels I've been doing this long enough to where I I can ballpark what I'm getting in calorie-wise I know when to eat more when eat less than how my body just banning that's something that people can get to. They've been doing it for years and years and years and years. But I just one thing I do is intermittent fast not because I think it's anything magical just simply because it allows me to eat larger meals later on the day so I'll I'll I'll be facet all morning train usually around mid afternoon and then I'll eat my first meal post workout and then I'll try to only have maybe three major meals that day and I keep it pretty well rounded like my post workout meals usually like a big chicken breasts. Some barbecue sauce on now and then grits some cheese and eggs mixed in there something like that. You know or some oatmeal pretty basic stuff. So I keep it pretty basic. Pretty. I guess quote Unquote Clean. But yeah, I'm not afraid of like having a lot of it and I'm not afraid of throwing things in the mix as well. Either because I just know I'm not eating a whole lot. So as the way to do it, you can eat big fun meals that are large as long as you're not. Overeating and eating too much of them. Yeah, and it's like I, mean, you're pretty far removed from those binging days and stuff So I don't WanNa say we can joke around about it now but I remember you're saying you're like it wasn't like a matter of like one or two bowls of cereal one or two box and so yeah. So I have to ask you what's your go to cereal? Serial so long now actually speaking of binging in cereal I knew I was starting to get over the benching issue when I can finally make a cereal box last for like a week that was something. That was unheard of territory. Man She no one of my favorite cereals are this. This hurts me because this isn't even actually my favorite cereal if I had to break down, but I just love is the sour patch kids cereal. It's a let you either GonNa do yeah. You're either going to hate it or you're gonNA love it. There's no one that just kind of likes. My favorite minutes addicting some of the best zero though like Butter cereal. That's good. To try that. Afraid it's. Good. No, it's yeah. It's really good dude it's amazing. Obviously the classics like Cinnamon Toast Crunch or always amazing I mean almost I can't think it'd be better off listening cereals I don't love. True. True. So I guess if somebody's listening what are some like like telltale signs that maybe like a shoot, maybe I should pay attention because I might have binging issue one of them is Eating really fast, which sounds really funny. But like when you been justice part of it, it's it's almost like the animalistic out of your brain coming out which it it actually is. If you look at the science behind what's going on in your brain when you Benji, it is the quote Unquote Animal Saudi of your brain basically the the portion of your brain that controls like the survival instincts. If, you push yourself underwater you're gonNA, suddenly fight tooth and nail to get up to get oxygen you know. Things like with hunger that that applies as well and you kind of just get miss wired and you create a new habit with that side of the brain to. Give you almost starvation response with everything you eat. So one of the things you will do as you'll eat really fast you'll inhale it really really fast. So that's one thing. No, and that's one of the things actually helped. You help me get away from binge eating was just take force myself to take time between bites take a bite force myself to put on the spoonful like a few seconds. I had phone on while I was still livestream on on the guy sounded good in your phone. That was you. Yeah, Yup. Another big one is. Another Big One is getting Zion stress going on when it comes time to eat especially if you start off trying to especially if you tell yourself One cookie and that's just like one of this or one bowl of that, and then you start getting kind of anxious and wound up stressful and you go back for another one and you try resisting the more you're more anxiety get, which is easy to confuse with just kind of you know slipping into a cheat day when you've been dieting for a while it's kind of what you do when you cheat on a diet. But like you'll notice that you kind of start to do that with everything all the time. So coming from a background. Bodybuilding background here Super Training Gym we have a lot of powerlifting gear, but as a bodybuilder who maybe is like, Oh, I obviously don't need knee you know knee and elbow sleeves because I'm not going heavy but for for someone like that, how can those type of knee sleeves or elbow sleeves help them out with their training? I think everyone can use niece Li. It's because it's not something that's like. It's not just for when you're doing crazy heavyweight. I mean it's longevity of your joints period like even if you're squatting if you're a two hundred pound male in your squad and three hundred pounds. Nothing Earth Shattering, but that's still three hundred pounds on that tiny little joint that is your knee over and over again it's GonNa add up. So if you were niece leaves, it compresses the knee it keeps the joint moving. Basically it's like it's like warming up your knee joints for you. Instantly. So gets the knee moving nice and fluid is the tendons moving and it helps the muscles just fire better. So even if you are bodybuilding, I, still recommend a niece leave. It's just efficiency and longevity for the joint attendance don't. So for the first time in power project history, the fan line actually crashed on me. Wow. So that that's good but we'll get that thing back open and running again. Let me see. Make sure this is all good to bummer. Already anyways. All right. Well, we'll get back to some of these questions, and again if you guys are on the the livestream right now, please hit that fan line we are open everything looks like it's working this time around. So my apologies going to go we're good to go. Now I wanted to ask you though is e started youtube also at an extremely young age yeah you're like one of the first ones. Like what drove you to start that channel? Yeah man it was just Scott, Herman and Scooby. When I started youtube there was no one else I have been documented my progress in just competing in bodybuilding for myself. I've been documented on body space, which was like body boom dotcoms, mice, base the time. This is before like instagram before all of that and. I noticed there's a pretty big platform documenting all sorts of bodybuilding pro bodybuilding amateur bodybuilding. On major sites like bodybuilding dot com they do these huge web series covering it but I realized there's really nothing covering teen bodybuilding. So I started uploading videos on Youtube just Basically. To store my contests footage on there just of contests footage and just forget about it. It was just there. So I can look back at it kind of like dropbox or Google docs and one day look back at it and I noticed I had a pretty good amount of views and subscribers built up from it and I was Kinda shocked. But then it kind of clicked I love public speaking love it love speaking in front of a camera and I think I'm pretty good at breaking things down in a unique way when it comes to giving. Information out. So I just decided you know what? I'm going to create a platform to document teen bodybuilding since there isn't one and it'll be youtube and I started my channel and it started interacting and the rest was history though. For people out there right now like. Youtube and Twenty Twenty It seems like it's probably going to be like damn near impossible to get big now just because the the spaces and there's so much noise going on right What advice do you have somebody specifically in the fitness realm to help build their? Youtube. Channel. Run. I was listening I like jogging I don't run away from. The best advice I can give you. There's there's no real tricks of trade anymore. It's a crazy time right now. So you're you're dealing with an industry that's so overly saturated. You're doing with algorithms now on Youtube Instagram, facebook medias that work against you even let your content get to your organic followers anymore everything's we're GonNa get you, and then there's no real trend to follow either on one side of fitness youtube, you have guys give it informative lifting. Tips on the other side you have Larry wheels hitting PR's and then the other side you have just gimmicky shit with people pulling up in like supercars doing backflips and crazy stuff like that. That's just kind of eye and goes viral. So there's not one real right track to jump on. So my advice now would be my advice was back when I first started youtube and what it has always been, which is decide what you're passionate about and pursue that. Passionately and then just use youtube as a way to share that passion boom. That's it. If you do that, you'll never go wrong because you may run into a point where you're not getting views things are not picking up it's not going well, you're not going to care because you're just following your passion first and foremost, and then eventually you keep doing that enough you never know something could finally pick up. Do you think it's like a viable option anymore these days to just rely just on youtube like ad revenue for somebody to like. Because what I'm thinking is like, okay like even doing all this right now like. In so much work and attention into this podcast. That is very much obviously worth it. Is that worth these days to put that much time and energy into a Youtube Channel? No. Not just first rate revenue and actually. GRADUATE ASK THAT Starting to Youtube Channel. For the sake of revenue and making money is an absolute guarantee to failure. I've said that before a billion times and still stand by if you're starting youtube channel to make money, you're gonNA fail because already your heads going to be in the wrong place and you're going to be number focus you be focusing on the numbers and those numbers do not climb fast and you're gonNA get discouraged and you're getting fed up and you're going to quit and also the the viewers are going to be able to tell that your content is not genuine. There's something about Content when is genuinely creative and it's coming from a passion it just feels different. It sits with you different and you're not going to have that so. Do not focus on the money at all and don't get an youtube for the sake of making money and also is it feasible? So in theory yes like I still make money off my youtube channel and even when I start uploading more, see that money go up again but you gotta get a pretty big channel to make sufficient money. Now you know nowadays it's like okay YouTube. Cool. But we're really relying on sponsors relying on our own businesses our own sites whether you coaching programs run a clothing line whatever it may be. Other endorsements, there's other things that come from the youtube channel that make us money. So we're not really focus too much on the ad revenue because that's getting smaller and smaller and smaller companies are paying less and less money because ads are becoming less and less effective at targeting was huge in two thousand and fifteen. It's quickly becoming saturated and not as effective anymore. So the paying less and less. So the CPM's are less and less. And then like I said, the Algorithms are working against you you know and. Now you've got two more hoops to get monetize as a new channel and you gotta You I forget what it is now, but you gotta reach a minimum amount of views. And Wash time every single month stay monetize. It's something like like I think like now nine thousand minutes or some something that sounds something like that and then like ten. Or maybe it's just like one thousand subscribers right? But yeah, I guess, yeah the the barrier of entry. Is getting a little bit higher which actually appreciate because I don't think you know I I think the harder it is actually get monetize I think it will be like the market be less saturated but as far as being a viable option of like you know 'cause like my daughter is twelve years old and like most kids she's like I just wanted to youtube. It's like it's going to take a little bit more than just making like a youtube channel. Take stuff like social media. So D is Are you like you and Arianna the only two that run your social media or the only ones that run it and. What you said I want to go back to what you said about it kind of. The tighter standards for getting monetize kind of weeding out a lot of the undeserving content. That is true as an ideal but I don't think it's working that way in practice because I think what's happening is you're getting. Less, and less efficiency from ad targeting. So people are paying less and less and less and went up resulting is the few companies that have the money to spend are going to start becoming very choosy in what kind of channels, what kind of content they do put their ads into, and then what youtube ends up doing and also should meet isn't doing as they end up conforming this algorithm that's GonNa eventually favor the sort of videos and we're already starting to see this a little bit. Now, you're starting to see more censorship happing youtube now. Because it needs to appeal to advertisers and then you're also seeing and it's I think I think it's still a little bit more robotic right now I don't think it's necessarily someone's favourite tting certain videos but I think this is the direction could very easily go in and is starting to go in where The type of content. Genres, that do. Make money. Investors just want investor add sense into that. So therefore, Youtube is going to start favoring those and those are going to be recommended videos in the in the videos got circuit in the field and what you're going to see is entire genre start getting fizzled out and pushed off to the side. So initially started off with okay cool. We're making it so you can't just be anybody in jump onto youtube but now you're gonNA make. Okay. Even if you're a deserving channel, you just don't fit the criteria of advertisement so you gotta get shoved off to the side. Okay. Cool. It looks like we got a call now right? All right, let's see. Caller. What's your name? Where are you calling from? Louis from. Texas. Texas in the house what's going on man? WHAT'S UP Louis. Much. Cool what's up dude? Do you have any questions for Nick? Here. Fire Away. When the difference? What did they what the day to do for a party? For powerlifting. Simple as best in my opinion so you don't need to. And get fat like a lot of powerlifters thinking do you can keep it pretty similar to what you eat for bodybuilding so eat enough calories to where you're in a caloric at least caloric maintenance if not a clerk surplus and they have a lot of videos on youtube right now, you can just type in how to to find my Mac rose how to track my Makarova's in give you some equations, how to figure out how many calories you need. So. Make sure you're getting a good amount of calories overall make sure your protein intake is nice and high. One gram protein per pound of body weight. So if you're two hundred pounds bodyweight, roughly two pounds of two hundred grams of protein. Excuse me. and. You want to at least twenty percent of your diet to be good fats that helps your hormones there. So you know you can make. Make a decent amount of fat and then just felt the carbs. You know it doesn't need to be anything too fancy or too crazy. Actually why in the line you know what I have I have. I have the exact Math I think four that. Diet. Let. Me See breaking down some mackerels for them. Yeah. I had. A heritage yeah okay. So. For calories to find your calories, take your body weight, multiply it by fourteen to sixteen times. So if you want to be saved just times your body weight by fifteen that's about how many calories you should start with. then. Protein. About one gram per pound of body weight. Fat. You WanNa do your body weight times point three. or point four if you want to on the higher side. And then whatever's left, you calculate all that. Whatever's left is you can fill it up carbs but keep it simple. Just protein get those carbs fats in just eat well. What type we try to stay away from? Well. That's GONNA come down to you more than anything I mean in a general sense you know eating. Eating higher quality food. So obviously, you're meets your vegetables, fruits, things that are going to be higher and vitamins nutrients overall getting good fiber. Is, always the best way to go. So then foods that wouldn't really fit into that would obviously be like a lot of the process sugar stuff process sugar isn't evil. You can have it. It's not gonNA it's not GonNa, destroy you but you should make your entire diet be ice cream and chocolate and things like that twenty, four seven and as far as lifting goes. Be Very careful this is going to come down to you finding out what works for you. You'RE GONNA want to make notes of what foods don't sit well with you when you're lifting so. If. You're someone who gets lightheaded or you have high blood pressure when you lift, he know maybe don't have a whole lot of sodium. Don't have. Sushi with a bunch of soy sauce right before you lift you know or if you have a sensitive stomach stay away from maybe greasy foods no fast food stuff like that things GonNa make you sluggish and possibly mess up your stomach and performance. Okay to say three times a day. You Do Cardio three times a day. Yeah Seems like a lot of cardio. What do you do? More like. Running and all that. Well, if you are doing cardio, I mean I don't know exactly what your schedule looks like exactly what your goals are but if you're doing that much cardio. More like A. What? Do you mean three times a week three times a day. Do like every day once a day. Okay. Yeah. That's good. Yeah. Yeah. That's good. I like to I like doing cardio wants today do it after you lift I wouldn't do it before you lift. and. You don't have to do right after lift you can lift you can eat income home you can relax whatever you can have dinner. You can the whole nine yards and then you can do it later on the evening if you want or you can lift and you can just have one scoop of protein. That's what I like doing when I do them both at the same time I'll go into the gym a lift up bring one scoop. Of Protein with me usually in like a small little tupperware right and I'll mix it up in my in my water bottle at the end of my weightlifting workout and then I'll just I'll pound that and then I'll go onto the treadmill and do my cardio. So you get a little bit of that protein in right after work out, which is good because protein repairs muscles. So you want some protein definitely throughout the day especially after you work out. You'RE NOT GONNA. Die If you don't have it, you're not gonNA wither away if you don't have it but it doesn't hurt. But you can do that. You could just work out you can have your protein right there in the gym after your weights and then you can do your cardio. or You could work out, go home, eat a real meal, and then do cardio and its own time but I wouldn't do cardio before you do your weight training stuff just because cardio can drain, you can tire you out a little bit. Can even make you tight. So if you need cardio the need coming in to do a heavy squat, the squat trash. Under. The Cardio. That's also up to you. If you're walking like if you're doing like a steady wok, usually forty five minutes is a good minimum. If you're running. That can that can that's up to you and it depends exactly what you're doing. The unit can do a thirty minute jog you can do. You know intermittent where you like sprints and then slow down and sprint and slow down. So it depends on what you're doing that'd be hit high high intensity interval training. Take Awesome. You hit me up on instagram anytime. You have a question to always there. Appreciate you taking the time to call. US. TAKE IT BUD Let Rather. Does dope real quick on the cardio thing because I like to do is actually just go for calories I don't go for time. So like I make sure like the least get five hundred calories burnt like estimated. I'm not saying like, oh, I can now eat a five hundred calorie meal extra at the end of the day it's just a target what do you think about that? So I think all it comes down to consistency consistency is the only important thing there. So if you're counting calories on the machine, the machines obviously not going to be accurate says your count you're burning five hundred calories. Maybe you are. Maybe you are maybe you're burning less maybe burn more who knows you know maybe of a the weighted vest on and you're actually burning more calories than the says whatever. But what it does mean is that you know that walking at that pace if it's on a treadmill, you say you're walking four miles an hour whatever you're doing you know that at that pace. For that amount of time you're burning. The same amount of calories. So even if five hundred dollars is an accurate if it's only three hundred, whatever if you repeat that same exact pace and time every day, you're guaranteed to be burning the same amount of calories every day and you figure out if it's enough or you need more just by eating, you know if you're a way isn't going anywhere then. Maybe kick it up a little bit or a little bit less in proportion if you're doing that and you're dropping went really fast than, hey, maybe you're burning more calories than your, you can eat a little bit extra. You know man four miles an hour who are you David? GOGGIN BS I am. Signal call. Let's see who we got collar what's your name, and where are you calling from? My name is Mitchell I'm calling from Atlanta Mitchell what's going down man? Now much Nick Right. Yes sir. Nice Dude Yeah I was wondering so yeah nineteen. I'm basically doing like a kind of like a power golding split right now I love it. And I'm wondering like what's Seddon Range? You think is best for bench press 'cause I've been doing a five by five. But I was wondering I've tried different things like before I was doing like just a typical split like three sets eight reps right. doing a five by five. Now, I was wondering or your take on the best like rep ranges to increase the bench. So. is a little different from person to person one person might respond better to high reps than low reps, and then another person might be the total opposite and it also can depend on where you are in your training. But personally what I've found for definitely myself and I found this for a lot of people. It's not it's not the golden rule, not the law. But it's something I've definitely found that works a lot is typically lower reps for bench press. So I personally stick to around four actually I buy. So I have a power building program that I designed in two thousand eighteen. It's the same one I've used for the last couple of years. Now I haven't switched off of it and I'm still making progress on it. And a lot of my main bench days there are four by fours and they'll have a variation bench, Dale Bench twice a week and a variation bench day. That'd be a long pause day like a two second pause and that what I might do like. Three something a little bit different there. But for my main working bench day like a four by four in progress the weight up a little bit each week and that's the other big thing to it doesn't necessarily it doesn't matter what your ups and sets are but it also matters how you're progressing with the weight because that should also be strategic kind of like the same way you drop your calories down strategically when you're doing a cut kind of how you WANNA move up in weight as well. So I four three weeks we'll be a four by four and then starting on week four I actually start doing heavy single, not a Max just a heavier single in my reps. And then dropped down to other letter weight into a four by four after that if that makes sense. Yeah Also, what do you think is the best like Like accessories for us. So, one accessory that gets so overlooked in powerlifting is the dumbbell press. It's so simple but so effective and you can do you can do the flat dumbo press or if you're already doing a lot of flat benching and you're kind of gas from that, you can just do incline dumbbell press and you don't even have to make it heavy heavy pressing can work well. What I'll have some of my guys doing train them is. They'll do all their flat bench work, and then afterward I'll have them do like a by eight on inclined dumbbell press nothing too crazy not superlight but not super heavy either and it works amazingly that and close grip pressing for the triceps are probably the two biggest exercises and then man the biggest thing for benching. So dumbbell pressing, close pressing, and then just the biggest fixer of all for everyone is simply pause reps start pausing all of Europe's doesn't have to be a long pause it can be half a second. It could be one mrs up like that easy. But Start Pausing your reps and control the bar. Go on. You. Think I should do that like on every. On every settled should do a positive. Yeah. Ideally up and it may suck at first because like they're tougher when you're not used to them. So you probably to wait and just practice with the slightly letter wait what I'm telling you man once you get used to it, they will blow your bench press up because if you've ever failed a rep and you got it off your chest but then it kinda started failing like midway up. That's usually because you don't have enough power off your chest and so pause reps will help that. Okay. Yeah. I never really did pause. And that'd be the biggest game changer right there. Cool. Man. Thank you so much for calling in and we sincerely appreciate it. Yes. Awesome. Oh cool Let's just hop right into it but I, was gonna ask you actually Ashi after this. Let's see. We got next. Caller. What's your name? Where are you calling from? Going down manager boy. From the big age town what's going on? Man. Had A question regarding I'm getting ready for me in here next year but I'm currently in cut in phase about let's say one ninety I'm kinda down to one, seventy five. That's my goal around January and had a question for you regarding that Iraq I can. Compete at one eighty one. Okay. So what recommend me during my cut when I'm in about the you know range of one eighty one to ahead and compete or just finished my cut off at one, seventy five and just kind of you know kind of not bulk up like. Easily. Eighty one me yeah I would you go about the I? Would your second option one, hundred percent? I would cut down already be about cut down one, seventy five, and then ease back into that one eighty range, and then do a meat just because when you are in the middle of cutting especially when you're deep into a cut, you're GonNa be zapped man you just don't have enough calories to really be your strongest. You're going to be kind of. Low. Energy. So you want to have some energy one have some calories in you. You don't have to be necessarily heavy, but you WANNA have at least energy in calories. So I would I would do the cut get shredded, get lean, and then after one five slowly you don't think fat too. Slowly Kinda add a little bit more calories than slowly you know even if you come in light like one eighty at least you're going to have calories and energy and you're gonNA feel a lot stronger. Demand. Thank you. My answer. My question I had another one. So where do you think the state power is head into our now. My Future. Yeah I like it. Honestly I like kind of words going. We're seeing stronger and stronger lifters. Now, we've ever seen before specially in the Rosser. Obviously Ross taken over in winter. Cool transition in my opinion. So you went from the older school west Barbell era of guys where they took it. I don't want to seriously, but I mean they were very extreme with it. You know willing to die for it to the point where they almost were dying during it. Then you had kind of this Then you had this new Internet wave come out a lot of the USA. The rog is came out on social media, and then it kind of went in the opposite direction to where like the cool thing was to be humble. And Talk About how lame powerlifting thing was and act like you don't really care about it and that was kind of lame to because that's just stupid and so now we're coming around to this point where we're getting this nice happy medium where people are getting really serious and amt about it again. But while kind of maintaining like they're not killing themselves over it and we're seeing some bad s coming up man like John Hacks, smashing numbers. Man That's crazy. Man boggles my mind saying that I do yeah human. It doesn't even make sense man he's nutty. Yeah I'll right man I had another question look what kind of music you into what you've been listening to rap is I'm always into rotman especially trap. Did you take out that new ause though I did I. Just southern new single. Yeah. I did see that that's just no. Dude I like old. Just this morning I had. My mind on. Actually Houston I had. Like Paul's old stuff in like some slim thug on on the airplane over here. I went and found Oh all right I'm going from Houston Man Yeah I love it. I found like throwed and leg all those old songs I, love it. Yeah already man. What's your? What's your? What's your? Viewer member the I don't know man one videos always reminded me. He's at Breakfast of champions ago. Why that a video mass ave watching everything man that's. For. Sure. Thanks for calling what question for you you're from Houston who's your favorite? Artist right now. Zero hands down by. Zero. Listening to listen to zero man hit up on spotify youtube man. Change. Your Life Hell Yeah Hell Yeah. Hey. Thank you for calling I. appreciate it. Thanks. This fun I, love that. That was cool. Man Yeah, I, Love Houston. Bad acid yeah. Think, I was in Houston. TACO CABANA I don't think so no. If TACO bell inch. Poli like had like a like a pretty cool. We can baby. It's like it's like as good as. As fast as Taco, bell sounds good. Sounds Great. Yeah. Well, speaking of speed out of the big, three. So squat bench dead. Which one did you actually progress the slowest? ooh Okay that's cool. Because there's context here. So overall. Overall Grand Scheme, just from the day I picked up, await the bench press. It took me like nine years to finally hit a four hundred and five pound bench brats. But Hey. If you throw in the context of once I actually learned how to powerlift I started powerlifting in two thousand fourteen. Them for about six years, right. Asking there yes six years So out of just the six years I've been powerlifting my dead lift actually crawled the slowest. My squat went from. High three, hundred, four, zero, five for the first time. It doesn't fourteen you know. So that one from high three hundred although up to six, zero two in the last six years and my bench went from three, forty, five up to four, twenty five. For a bench. That's pretty good progress over the last six years nothing crazy. But you know benches move slower in general but my dad left went from like five hundred. To six fifty over the last six years, which is a lot number. Wise. But it's like given how heavy the dead lift is and how much more leaps and bounds you can typically make in it just because it is you're able to lift more weight is definitely proportionately the slowest mover and it took me forever to finally find my groove in it too. Is that I hated it for the longest time. So did you have to get a little bit bigger to help with the leverages? No. Actually I, cut down to one seventy and two, thousand eighteen and re almanacs again dead lifts so. I think is actually one lift that's not very body weight dependent but it was just a lot of the technicals I actually just my youtube channel, my most recent video called. Form Check fixture dead lift. If you're going to wash that, you have to pull it out too long video. But if you're GONNA watch that, I go into a lot of technical stuff that most people miss I guarantee that would be probably one of the most informative helpful videos you've ever watched on the deadly and it's just a lot of things like that. I get into that video that really just started clicking for me that I picked up on and helped it the most. Yeah. So everybody who's on the the livestream right now we got time for about one more phone call. If you guys have any questions for Nacre, you wanted to say what's up edging? Up Question, hit that phone line right now for people likes some like I know here in California gyms, I think at ten percent capacity Oh. Nice. So It's silly but it's something. Yeah. So for you how Corentin and then any advice for people that are now in that ten percent are trying to get back into the gym. For Quarantine Man I just kind of. Look whenever down. Yeah. I'll stay active like go for walks to push of Seattle some little dumbbells I do some show there's simply play outside of that i. just kind of didn't care about lifting I think about it. I just you know I took several months to just focus on building other skills and I knew lifting would be there when it was done and I knew I wouldn't lose all. My gains, we feel like we are but three years from now, what's three months of no lifting going to be nothing little blip on the radar. So I just relaxed and was confident I knew get back and muscle memory would be there and I'd get right back on the horse easy. I did in eight weeks I was hitting PR's again. So for people just getting back in and it's limited capacity. Test patient do we can you can't control it? You can't go and make your Jim let more people in or you know kick people out. So you can get in just understand is going to be limited and try to just enjoy getting what you can don't stress if you can't get in your normal level of training if anything do a program that's maybe only three days a week right now four days something. That's a little less than what you're used to just for the sake of getting in and get moving again. Ever been taking time off you're not going to be super strong right now. Anyway. So just get moving again and just don't stress. You can't control what you can't control. Yeah. Just funny comment baby Mahara tried to use her think I'm assuming it's a her maybe it's a he they try to use their we fit during. Some stick was not working. So it would be frustrated. Yeah. What about goal setting especially when you're trying to get back in, you know because you're like, Hey, let's be a little bit more patient. You know you might not even be able to get into the gym today for capacity if that even as a thing, she's assume that it is. How can somebody say realistic goal moving forward from here you know like, what can they do like? Should they maybe schedule out like a show in like a year from now? Should they do a powerlifting me? What can somebody do to stay motivated and like help set a goal? Yeah. I'm always a big fan of. Goal setting that's outside of your comfort zone. So power to me in a show are definitely great. Know that said you want to be a little careful because if committing to a show I mean a year I was a long time. But if you're committing to a show and you're not positive, you're GonNa make all your training consistently that could be problematic. Yeah. You can make a lot of progress and you can make gains with limited training but to do a show or even me that can be a little trickier you kinda. Everything to be on. So you know one safely, but you can still other goals like I said a goal hit a six hundred squat I. Want to get back in the gym. I've been one hit a six hundred bucks for awhile I just never had I was like I'm going to do this and believe me squatting felt heavy my first day back in the gym everything fell heavy I was starting square one again like everyone. But I just I got on my lean? Strength Program. Get on a program, a good program in commit to it, and then if you can't hit every day of your program, rearrange readjusted little bit make it a three day three day a week program. If you have to make that your goal, see what pr you can hit just with that three day week training and if anything take it as a challenge to learn about programming because that's sort of trial and error is GonNa make you especially if you learn how programming works that's GonNa make you good at programming your own strength. and. How did you learn how to program well, years and years studying and applying it obviously, and then also I was coach Ascona a few different good coaches but coast under Bret Gibbs, who is a three time IPF champion and just a phenomenal powerlifter and He coached me for about three years and I learned so much for him. He is such a technical i. You know and I always wanted to learn it for myself because it's real easy to let a coach just tell you what to do and. Make whatever changes you want you to make. Wire making them, and then you can get some progress but I was like understand it. So I would learn from him. I'd figure out why he wanted me to do what, and then I also like just be studying on my own time constantly studying physics bio mechanics the way the body works Ah Leverages program and the principles of programming structuring it. How the central nervous system works. So just years of like studying. Learning from the best and just accumulate knowledge and I'm still learning to this day all the time constantly and today's Day and age with social media social distancing It's creating a lot of introverts. Do you think somebody can learn how to program for themselves without. Getting a mentor or coach I yes. Definitely. Definitely the coach. Is just a nice advantage. It can help you fast track. You have me telling you how to peak for me and giving you the INS and outs of why you're doing everything to Pique you're going to. Understand that much faster but you would be able to still take your time youtube search a bunch of videos of program of peaking of how the central nervous system works of how tapering works volume frequency the whole nine yards you could google articles and articles on. The scientific side of movements, the bio mechanics to really learn the tentacles of a lift. You could all that on your own. It was just GonNa. Take a little bit. It's GonNa take longer. Research and stuff. So obviously, that takes longer and it takes them discipline because it's not the most exciting glamorous thing in the world to do. So. Yeah. Definitely. Definitely, if you don't have someone telling you, you have your own work, but it's all out there in the Internet. It's a beautiful time to be getting into lifting right now. Yeah. So outside of you and Mark Bell. Who are some youtubers that people go to four some good information Definitely me. That even say that Dude I've just been like it's kind of it's kind of frustrating I have been busing. I'm so proud of the content and putting out for an informative videos and I think this content is gold I don't think and the feedback has been agreeing with me so I'm not just like assuming this. Youtube is not circulating these videos recently in the last month and cannot get a video circulated. Them? Yeah. Yes. Oh. Definitely, check some of those out though I don't I don't even care at this point been doing it forever but it so it is what it is but it really, if you want some good solid info, check out my bench videos squad Vida's and delivers I, think it'd be really impressed. Mark Bell has some amazing videos. And who else who's on the channel that I've learned? No one really does like too much informative stuff anymore. Yeah. It's been a while I just prefer watching like Elliott holes back in the day like he was good back in the day. I. Ever Maurice off did a lot of parliament Hudson back in the day I'll use too much product. Now, he did a lot of Olympic lifting you know, but he had some great stuff back. When he was doing pile of thing and I don't think it's a bad thing. Obviously promote your channel. Candido. Does are. Definitely very informative. And those are helpful because it's funny because like. I've heard mark say this a couple of occasions in the first time I heard it. I got a little email to be honest but he was like, yeah, people aren't going to understand what I'm talking about him dead and I'm like. That's heavy like calm down with that but then he said it again I'm like, okay. Now I understand because like what you said like I have so much content on my channel and it's like, okay because of a silly algorithm now people aren't GonNa pick it up and watch it. But now it's like, okay, maybe. So one of our regulars Robo Hobo said he went and subbed on your channel so. Yeah, he's going to get information bench probably GONNA go up now. Yes. Literally if you type in for anybody, you nick right the key to a and then insert one of the big three the key to a foreign pound bench to big of cubic squat. I have a ton of different videos on those and I'm not I really am not trying to boast all jokes aside because I can roast myself. There's a lot of things I suck at I guess sports. Average powerlifter. Cabrera freaks out there right. But I think one thing I really am good at one strength I do have is my ability to relay information in a way where it can apply to an advance lifter who already knows what he's talking about doesn't want to board the basics but also makes sense if someone who's brand new and I've gotten a lot of awesome feedback confirm that I've heard which makes you really happy I've heard from people. People tell me hey if I've read this book and I've been under this coach wash this video but. Nothing click just like it did when I finally watched your video here I think something that it just happens to be just one of my strengths and my im- amped can help anybody at at all I. Really don't care about the views review sake at this point in the game I've been doing to forever but just know that is out there for anyone to use it's a bunch of free information I. Hope it helps. Yeah absolutely. So again, just one last reach for our calling out if anybody wants to give us a call if not, we're going to probably wrap things up pretty soon here for you, nick. You get this question a lot. I'm assuming like what's next like? I know you're here you're GonNa hit a huge squad tomorrow I. Think That's tomorrow. A small one of these days you're. One. Of these days while you're here, you're GonNa hit a big squat, but I'm. Talking about Youtube, your powerlifting still is there any other business ventures that you're hoping to get off the ground soon like what's next Nick Right? I had a huge business venture going I was really excited about I put a lot of money and time into and then covert kind of just squash. Especially when you're outsourcing things, it just kinda squashed it, but it's kind of less than skies because it really like between that and the Jimmy Down forcing me to dedicate my time to learning. Trading on the stock market I'd always I'd always invest it. So I gotTa have leader in training and I mean really like fulltime, really learning technical analysis. So only trading pattern breakouts trae specifically options do this full-time now. So but same thing as learning programming note Jim and just mess around and have some luck and move some weight real program and really sets you apart same thing with the trading thing anyone can go on and gamble the money way. But if you really learn technical analysis, it becomes a lot more structured it becomes a skill set and. Comes pretty awesome. It's fulltime and it's something that's always there. So that's honestly that's become my new obsession. That's my new like full-time thing minus these last couple of weeks because I've been travelling. The world has been traveling to before this I had I was running back and forth between Rhode Island where I live in New Hampshire says a four hour round trip drive just to take care of my grandparents So I'd have to just involved a lot of up all night and so it wasn't even that far travel, but it felt like it. Was Glad to be up there and help them definitely but it was it was a very busy couple of weeks. Yeah. Especially for the help that you are offering, which will get into on the podcast tomorrow I'm sure. Yeah. So if you guys were digging this conversation that we had today thank you everybody that did call in. That was really cool S to. Talk to you guys. Yeah. I do love this format apologies for the the miscue early on but I'm seriously I look up to you so much like even more so now. Like I know what?

Weekly Rewind 9/16 - 9/20

"Dak Prescott had himself a Sunday. The Cowboys Albouy quarterback finished twenty six thirty two hundred sixty nine yards three touchdowns one pick deck added another sixty nine rushing yards on five carries show me says Dak Prescott somewhere at night when own release listening cowboys win on the road thirty one twenty one and they moved to to know here's Dak Prescott after another dominant win just a bunch of guys great athletes that all care for one another that are coming in and join this time each and every day that we're putting into this offense. We're putting into this team. What do you say to the people who stormed out whether best quarterback I mean they don't matter all matters you know what we think in this in his locker room we all support each other and we know decks wanting the best quarterbacks in his league and I mean you can delegate one. We'll keep you I see is that true is deck. Prescott right now. One of the best quarterbacks in the league will this is the what does that mean. Does that mean. He's in the top ten. Does that mean like I impressive. Has he been he's been. He's been outside. Lamar to me. He's been the second most improved your order back that we've seen and the reason why we're not surprised because he gave eight-game eight-game window last season that a lot of people are trying to discount all week number one all that making excuses giants and everything okay we number two on the road in Washington into all wash. There's nothing we can keep making excuses but the kid has made the type strides that we want guys to make what's he doing firing a ball down the field yes did they have a good effort from. Zeke and can they win without that. That's what we saw in last week's game. The things that I've seen in two weeks are things that are duplicative spread red ball around Darwin a threat tied in one catch over twenty hours anytime you can start getting that and other complementary players that shows me assign. Amari Cooper didn't have that Monster Game Index Steel Great. You stole the ball thirty times in the ball only ground four times twenty six thirty. NFL Game Divisional Game. I'm very impressed with that. Not only would he saint on before two games is being the team leader. Peter how he addressed the media after the Game I love it. He is a franchise quarterback and I'll tell you this because someone Dallas told me this he has unusual. You'll leadership skills and we gave him credit. My Man Colin is on top of that. We gave credit for the first three years now. Take that with his ability to build a throw the ball and lead his his team. That's what we've seen in the first two weeks. See You mentioned throw the ball thirty times only four incompletions yet twenty-six at thirty two hundred seventy yards one twenty-three rating. That's really really really good but he was actually far better than that. The game started with two three and outs and an interception for Dallas on those three drives. He was four for seven the rest of the game. He was Phil Simms in the Super Bowl. He was twenty two of twenty three. That's ninety six percent completions a near perfect quarterback rating eleven yards per pass three touchdowns and and what I would say is no mistakes Dallas after those first three drives their drives were seven for ninety seven touchdown eleven for eighty three touchdown nine for seventy five touchdown eleven for sixty eight critical field goal at the time ten thirty four touchdown and then six forty five taking knees game over he was perfect after those first three drives and those first drives you're right. I'm sitting there watching. It was like this is why was didn't want to annoy him after the week one game. You're a hundred percent all right. I'm doing the right things. Go to read my mind. I said look like a three and out then he throws a pick late across the middle goes off. COPS hands intercepted then. He's three and out again. I'm like okay everyone all that stock everyone bought and Dak.. It's about to be sold off a little bit in the second half of this game I the game he didn't he played perfect and this is the exact blueprint for Dallas by the way they were great on third down. They had eleven first downs rushing twelve passing. Zeke was excellent. DAX spreading the ball around old man went and got in the end own again with a short little out route to the only person who's going to average more yards you gentlemen yeah. He's also he's averaging one touchdown a game you yeah and so I mean this is this was the exact blueprint for the Dallas cowboys to be the best version of themselves and it started with Zac with deck and then Zeke going and by the way we didn't mention deck also had a nice little forty yard run where he looked at me hunting down Josh Norman who talked little trash before the game doc was sensational for the second straight week two weeks two wins. Zeke's the lineup healthy deck is playing great news for them. They'll come next week. It can be tough. We gotta start talking about maybe thinking about the division and whether the Eagles are still the favorites in that division coming up anyone slowdown Tom Brady and the Patriots offense. That's next on first things first because it wasn't Miami. They didn't slips are you. You ready for what's ahead.

We'll get to Ben Rothlisberger injury updating second but first Monday night football Brown's jets levy living on bail. Catching a short pass makes one guy miss hurdles over another for a seventeen yard gain agenda. I know you left that game saying okay we talked about. Ill Bill last year but he's nice with it. He's a football man. He was the only weapon they had only one and he's still found a way to give you one hundred twenty yards from scrimmage in a game where no no one could do anything for the jets. I will this guy did something for the browns. BJ pulling a sensational one-handed catch with jets defenders all over him. He's got amazing hands. He practice it. All the time spends a lot of time. He works on his overall hands strapped. He's just does the Jerry Rice drill with the bricks and everything when we had on the show the video tremendous wide receiver ready to have a a really good seasons body's feeling good and was Baker Mayfield where you can throw the ball nick. They continue to be special hang on they'll wasn't Donde worth Carter turns pass into an eighty nine yard. Touchdown down reached speeds up to twenty one point seven miles an hour on this play. Oh yeah he's little injured. The free safety was only on the field but Odell took away the angle. That's the reason why he cut cut-back. He wasn't going to get into a foot race because what's the safety has the angle on him and then let me eat that and low safety can't change directions quickly enough flip his hips right Williams. He's likes having those safeties lineup eighteen to twenty yards behind the line of scrimmage and this is what it's trying to prevent but when you're an athlete like Odell you're drawn dead with that much open in front of them all right moving on so the worst case scenario has officially unfolded for the Pittsburgh steelers. Ben Rothlisberger will have surgery on his right elbow and will miss the remainder of the season. Ben Released a statement saying this is shocking heartbreaking for me to miss this much of a season and feel like I'm letting down so many people people I can trust God's plan but I'm completely determined to battle through this challenging comeback stronger than ever next season. The steelers committed three years to me this off off season and I fully intend to honor my contracts and reward them with championship level play. I feel my heart. I have a lot left to give all right nick. What what does the future hold for Big Ben. Have we seen the last of him in Pittsburgh. I don't think we've seen the last of in Pittsburgh I take him at his word that he's going to try to come back and honor his contract and the steelers then we'll Alana the thirtyish million per year. They owe him going forward over the next two seasons after this year on that contract. I do think that win. Big Bend ends done playing. We will say the last playoff. Game Ben Rothlisberger overplayed in was that shocking home defeat to the Jacksonville Jaguars after the steelers dealers thirteen and three season in two thousand seventeen. I think that Wild Ben is planning on coming back. The team he comes back to is going to be one of the least talented teams. He's ever played for just like the team. He's on right. Now is one of the least talented teams ever played for big. Ben will be aged thirty eight. He turns thirty eight in March only seventeen quarterbacks in league history of even started the season at that age or older and I think you were seeing already admittedly very early parts of the season a deterioration in his play that you would not expect to all of a sudden jump in the other direction after an injury and lastly Big Ben is not Tom Brady and he is not drew brees. When it comes to health nutrition working out you could throw Eli and probably Philip rivers in there too who both take care absolutely and now big has had a playing weight that has fit his playing style rugged quarterback. He takes hits. He shakes off hits. He's a warrior in the pocket all those things but a guy like that. That's going to now be away from football longer than he's been at any point in his life. The Guy who two years ago two years ago was contemplating retirement the idea that he's going to attack. This rehabilitation with the victory would've at twenty five. I don't see it and so I it's devastating for the steelers. He's saying all the right things but I think the best days of big banner behind behind him and I think the steelers is a super bowl contender with big. Ben Is Their quarterback those the book. The chapter closed on his book. I closed on that midway. It's like he's going to retire. I believe in that he's GonNa play again. I just don't think the team's GonNa be good enough where he's going to be good enough. Yeah I disagree with you and it's it's impossible to get to where bin is in his football career and everything that he's been through members in that bad motorcycle accident yeah and I've seen been played her so much so to me. You know what you're saying about. Other quarterbacks and everything is true. Tom Brady Brady drew brees Philip Rivers. Eli these guys are in tremendous shape but none of those guys are the athlete Ben Rothlisberger. Is None of them have the talent. Ben Rothlisberger does if you ask all them and they were telling the true Tom Brady Aikman. Would you rather take Ben Rothlisberger tools and towns one a lot everything he'd been like yes. His physical skills is big as he is. Nimble is in the pocket. He can throw a ball any type of way. You want to talk about Patty Mahomes uh-huh varying the speed. Tell me what Ben Rothlisberger can't do throw it to the flat fraud across the Middle Intermediate put some loft on it bomb someone deep down the middle he could make every type of throw he's been in every type of game in the guy's got heart you don't get to where he is and play the way he's played and unless you have a big heart and this will be one of the biggest challenges of his career and it's not about being in shape. You don't have to go out to take over this whole new regiment all of a sudden become. I'm a Vegan and everything Cam. Newton went out camping. Grace Kelly camp came. Throw the ball so the nutrition part don't have nothing to do with throwing the ball and that's all we we want to do unless you think he's. GonNa come back to read option or something but I believe that Ben Rothlisberger will respond to this. Yes he did talk about retirement a couple two years ago but obviously he made a recommitment to football and the Pittsburgh Organization. It's hard for me to believe the next three years. They won't be in the playoffs if they they get their defense fixed. They'll be back in the playoffs there wide receiver coach Brayshaw. He'll get those guys fixed if they give him one year in free agency. There's a bunch of veteran players that no race Hermano his reputation belt. Come there and play in Pittsburgh for less money. It's not Tommy John Surgery I believe been bounces onces back because all that fitness and everything it doesn't matter when you have the type of skill set and it speaks to what type of talent that been the you'd you'd have to go down a whole bunch of quarterbacks the ones that are older until you get to Aaron Rodgers and say who has more talent than Ben Rothlisberger. None of those other guys do the only only one got more arm talent is Aaron Rogers. What about the state of the team. Do you think where the team is will affect whether he comes back or how quickly he comes back. Well I think we can and I I'm almost ready to just put aside the idea that he won't come back. I don't think you released that statement and have the the contract that he just signed. Commit all thank you because if they have an atrocious season I think it will be attributed even if it's unfair to simply to him not being there right now. I I you guys know I was skeptical on them even with him but now if they go five and eleven people will say a lot of people say well yeah of course. I mean you lost your starting quarterback Rebecca. What do you expect you lost a quarterback. WHO's been there. They've never had a losing record the entire time he's been the quarterback. Pittsburgh steelers the only losing record the steelers have had at this century was the year before he got there which allowed them to draft him in the middle of the first round fourteenth. Whatever was eleven pick out of the Miami Ohio so no. I don't think he's coming back. I believe him on that. Now is are they going to have the same. GM or are they gonNa have the same coach. What type of team are they going to have. We know they're not going to have a first first round. Pick this year because the MINKA fitzpatrick trade instead they're going to have him replacing the first round pick which will go to your point about upgrading the defense second-year player out Alabama but no no. I believe he's coming back. I just don't think this team has enough talent to offset a coming off. Injury deteriorated Ben Rothlisberger Chris. Obviously disagrees yeah well what team could recover from losing three superstars in less than two years. L. Bell Free Agency Gone Abie shot himself out yelled themselves out of the building and Ben Rothlisberger her when they start looking to the short future. Ben Rothlisberger is going to be a part of that all right. They will get their defense fix if they get their defense fix that is key because then coming back. You don't have to put all that pressure been the throw for five thousand when being comes back facto. I can guarantee you don't over four thousand yards next year. They will get other wide receiver. Dante Moncrieff as I told people on glad twitter found out but I've been told him since the preseason he sees he is not the answer. He is not a number to receive. Don't make him a bad person but he is not the answer opposite of James Washington and in Juju Smith Schuster so I do believe Ben. We'll come back and I don't believe that the nutrition in all of those things have anything to do with the heart and the guy decides he wants to be able to do something. He doesn't have to change much of his regiment. Always gotTa do is listen to his physical therapist right. Ben Rothlisberger is one quarterback in off season when he at last game when he takes his cleats off a lot of times he used to tell at the quarterback first time he's putting them back on when they go to training camp is because he is that gifted people might say oh he's lazy. We have had people in sports like that. We got kept the Golfer. Don't practice a whole bunch right now. He's dominating the PGA tour the guys gift. You might not like it. You might not be Your Cup of Tea Jenner Jenner of course the regiment and all that. Would he be better yes he would but he doesn't have to speak so how talented he is. All right the big news this morning. Ben Rothlisberger there is done for the season steelers our own shoes so we shall see what lies ahead for the organization hiring can be a slow process cafe they alter as Coo Dylan Miskel wits needed to hire a director of Coffee Firs Organic Coffee Company but he was having trouble finding qualified applicants applicants so he switched to Ziprecruiter Ziprecruiter doesn't depend on candidates finding you.

Isaiah win on I r with a foot injury that he suffered back in week. Two this'll sidelined. Tom Brady's blind sock protector for at least eight weeks. Keep in mind when spent all of last season on I R as well with a torn Achilles. I coach with all the problems on the line. We'll all that finally catch up to the Patriots. It's going to be hard and the one thing the shining earning star for the jets this past week was the defense in the sense that they were able to disguise coverages. They were able to bring a lot of different pressure looks. They were able to generate some things things against Cleveland when the offense really couldn't do much of anything so they'll be issues from a protection standpoint that'll be created in this game could catch up to them. Yeah you but you look at it this past week so they lose nate soldier and they lose. Trent Brown and they have Isaiah win and then they signed Marshall Newhouse who house four days before the game he starts at right tackle but then he has to move it to left tackle and Corey Cunningham trade for at the end of free preseason comes in at right tackle and David Andrews the starting center. He's got to be replaced so you're talking about three off. The three critical positions on the line callback alkyl tackles on the center are all changed out and the one guy that's playing a significant amount was signed three days earlier and then the week before you had an tonio brown and all the issues that that he brought in and all the potential distractions but it's not really that big a deal right we we barely talk about it. We a the conversation versus when he was in Oakland. Versus New England has now gone from up here the top of the mountain too much much much. It's lower and you just you move on. I remember playing a game defensively. They're where we had a a street free agent who started at corner. We had just gotten them. Troy Brown wide receiver. He was playing slot. Don Davis A linebacker he had to move to safety and Larry is of course special teamer he had to come in at started at inside linebacker and we end up winning the game because all those guys came in and they did exactly what we asked them to do and they played within the context of the game and the whole team played within the game plan to win the game and collectively as a group we were able to overcome shortcomings be because everybody. Whitey pulled a little bit harder and did exactly what we asked him to do so the and I and I appreciate that I understand that now I do wonder how much of last week was the Patriot way. How much of last week was playing the dolphins and how much of it is a combination of the two this week. They have the jets and that's why you mentioned the jets success against the browns. I don't know if people knew they had the jets this week next week. They are in Buffalo and in Buffalo has a strength of their team right now. Is there too and it would be defensive front. It would be their front seven in particular in their ability to get after the quarterback and I am wondering how many injuries become too many injuries on one unit of your football team. It's not we've lost a safety. We've lost a guard. We've lost a running back. It's not a long list of injuries but diversified along your team. Is Your centers out for the year. You're right tackle missed week to as you mentioned marcus his cannon and now you're left tackle. Who is your third different left tackle in three years. He now is out for at least the next ten weeks so we're eight to ten weeks. So at what point do you reach the breaking point on the Patriots offensive line no matter how well their coach no matter how good their culture is I fear for New England. You have to be starting to come close to it to where you are at replacement level players at three of offensive line spots but the only team that can handle it and the reason why is because they're gonNA do the reason why I trust him is because they're going to have all hands on deck. Pass protection gets a little leaky. You know what they're gonNA do maximum. They'll bring in a tied in bringing a fullback block it up. Imagine Josh Gordon in Abe on the same side of the field so if you bring me pressure no problem. I'm a block them eight. I might even have eshelman chip in on the edge and then leaking out being the safety belt but I can block seven of them and Tom. Brady is going to get rid of the football. That's the reason why you're not going to exploited. If it was any other team in the League would I trust them going forward no because they don't have the overall football knowledge and they not the teachers that New England are an their quarterback is going to hold onto the football Aaron Rodgers and they have old-line problems. Tom What does he do instead of getting rid of quicker what does he he holds the ball even more so Tom Brady and the football entail that they have will be able to correct back. This at some point is going to be a defensive front to bill to give them some problems yes but if you sit there and think you're. GonNa rush four people and get to Tom Brady. No the route will pick you apart. They'll sit on and he'll get the ball to them. If you try to Blitzer Bill Max it up. They'll have enough running running attack to bill bounce it off that you can't not off on them but it's something that they will bring attention to more so than any other part of the field. I mean any other part of the team and my last thing in enclosing is football was based on three faces and before we go out on the field to coach tells us we need to win to phase of this game to be able to win it who going unbeaten special teams and who's going to beat the defense which I believe going to be a top five defense so they already got two thirds of the game one so even if they're often gets real conservative and we'll just punt. They still got a great probability to build a win the game because they know if we go into the game with this game plan everyone that's out. There is going to accept that game plan so when you have that acceptance coach. It's a lot easier to get the type of performance that you're looking for that and there's is going to be a toolbox. There's GonNa be a list of things that if this happens what we're gonNA do so it could be wide receiver screen regular screen quick passing game name so a little bit of mixer no huddle the change of tempo cadence bring an excellent offensive linemen and let them play Titan and let him help chip Jones the tight advantage if used the BACKSTA chip. Keep changing it up so that all those things that you think you're going to exploit now. Let's put the pressure back on them. Let's put I watched the Denver game the other day and I felt so bad for the left tackle who had five holding beans and at some point. You're thinking you might want to give them some help. Bring bring somebody over there. Take a little bit of pressure off this guy but if you just sit there and say well you got to play better you gotta do better. You're on your own okay if it's not your left tackle. It's not your center GRONK and may not meet Tom Brady. Is there a player. The Patriots can lose and still be okay. Tom Brady well. Okay okay so brady but Brady's the only one Brady's the only guy that if we came out today and said this place got placed on I R we'd be on high alert is brady the only one on the Roster Dante hightower note Brady Okay Brady well then bill some the Josh mcdaniels. It'd be my next one moving onto jalen Ramsey. He wants out of Jacksonville unfortunately for him he will be playing against the titans tonight for Jacksonville in Jacksonville the Jags jags all pro cornerback has requested trade but we'll be active again with the trade seemingly coming sometime after the game so cc which contender should try to acquire Jalen Ramsey. I don't mean I it doesn't have to be a contender for me right now. We only played two games. Everyone's a contender giants. They think we make quarterbacks which we right back into this but I think there are certain places. That would be better for them. I think the raiders Jon Gruden got the CAP space. They got a really young team. They could use. WHO'S A corner play. They could also use a star going to Las Vegas. The Tennessee Titans. I do believe coach coons. He was a legendary highschool coach coach at. Oh Hi allstate he only coach in Ohio until last year. We took the job in Tennessee rebel. Who says he has experienced at Ohio. State went there and got him. He is a great are- defensive back coach in his hometown there with the Titan so the raiders are the titans I feel are the smoothest transitions for him for great guy has that type of skill set big corner wants to play a lot of man to man and as we said before he's from Tennessee wants to go back there and anytime if you can get a big take time star like that in a smaller market like Tennessee. I think that they should look into that particularly when he's listed the titans previously before the season is a place he'd like to play. Sometimes you worry big-time star. Would he be happy going to a small market the size of the market in Jacksonville's not why he's unhappy and because of his roots in Tennessee he has already already said Nashville would be a place. He wants to be proven that he can get national attention no matter no matter what I mean he's one of the star players in the league and one of the faces of of the League that we have on on the defensive side of the ball one team you mentioned yesterday for. I give a couple others that I thought really interesting. Philly philly obviously is a contender philly. That is the place where they need. I would argue. Can you help the most is on the back end of their defense particularly the corners because I like now Jenkins I understand we're we're talking about phillies injuries those they didn't deal with the spate of season ending ending injuries for Philadelphia with how active Howie Roseman has been how great he's been almost manipulating the cap to free up space when they need it. You would mention Philly yesterday that to me is a really interesting fit and would be something that if you're the Dallas cowboys and you see wait eagles got who the Eagles got jalen Ramsey at the debt or not even at the deadline a month into the season. That could be a game changer. I'm I'M GONNA mention team no one's attaching them to but I think they of the space they have the picks they have the need. What about the Los Angeles chargers now maybe they don't WanNa pay Jalen Ramsey. They'll they're going to have to pay Joey Bosa two guys but but they have the cap space to do it. They are right now. They know that last year they were this close to being the number one seed in the AFC Derwin James is going to come back at some point at the end of the season they already have an extraordinary corner in Casey a word but they're starting a guy who was undrafted free agent couple years ago at the other or corner spot if you added Feud Casey Hayward Jalen Ramsey winter when James comes back that immediately becomes far and away the best secondary in the NFL for one Nixon next gotta play. Pay Joey Bosa Casey's already making a bunch of Bunny Derwin James. You already know you're going to have to pay him now. Both of those guys being from Florida Florida state sometime. You think that Oh maybe that would work well. Maybe that might not work so I don't know they haven't been the most contract friendly to the player Philip Rivers. This doesn't have a contract so to me. That's a lot of money that a team that is not customary to pay and a lot of money. I don't think they would have that kind of money tied up in their secondary. Just two more teams quickly obviously yesterday. We talked a lot about the chiefs. It's for the chiefs. It's the best player available at the biggest position need but I do think the chiefs would have have real issues with that. Patrick mahomes going to become the highest paid player ever a year from now. They paid tyreek Hill. They paid Frank Clark. Maybe above market. They the Sammy Watkins they can get off him next year if they want to play really well this year adding the highest paid corner in NFL history was what Jalen is going to become would be tough to keep even I own the colts though I mean the colts have enormous cap space the draft capital. They're obviously going to try to win without being super explosive offense the culture sir. I'm Chris Ballard with Andy. I am calling Jacksonville and trying to take their temperature on that but he played his last game tonight for the Jaguars most likely absolutely that that would be my guess yes. That's about eight players just to RECAP ELI is out. Daniel Jones is in now starting quarterback for the New York giants and his first test will be this Sunday on the road against the bucks who better to learn from than sixteen year vet Eli manning manning against this the giants two-time Super Bowl Champ reportedly stayed at the facility after being told he was demoted to help prep the new quarterback and the allies is taking his new role as mentor in Stride. It hasn't been easy obviously disappointed not happy about it but you know ah you're you're accepted and make the best allies been nothing but you know nothing but helpful and and you know welcoming to me and I think you know obviously now the roles are are you know different and and you know they'll be some differences there but I think largely you know our relationship and how we communicate will be will be the same the end of Eli Manning who knows so yeah you know and again. I'm not dying and the season's over so there's there's a lot lot. Let's be positive rebel. Lots be grateful for and so I just got to accept my new role and make the best of it so clearly. Everyone is saying the right thing. Everyone is doing the right thing. I mean Eli going above and beyond by actually staying late in practice and mentoring Daniel a little bit. But how hard do you think nick this'll be free rely to take on this new role now as mentor when you know what he's been for the last fifteen six listen. I would imagine it's incredibly difficult but it's how this should come as a shock to the system for him and I would disagree agree with you a little bit in that ally going above and beyond when the when the giants draft a quarterback at number six and don't ask you to take a pay cut when you they easily could have when when they're you're still making your twenty two million this year when it could have been zero this year they part of the job this year for Eli was going to be eventually truly doing this now. Everyone expected Eli to do it as a gentleman and with grace as he appears to be I mean and that is that is a testament to why you Eli Manning as an individual for him as a player is one of the most respected people in the league. Nobody has a bad word to say about who aligning has been as a giant in the facility ability for the organization at any point in his career. I I don't know what it feels like his player to be demoted but I would imagine in any walk of life. If you see something coming and Eli had to see this coming at some point. You would hope you've done some mental preparation for win. The day does arrive live in so maybe thought that he would be able to stave it off a few more weeks than he did but he knew at some point this year he was losing his job and he was going to transition action from starting quarterback the New York giants to mentor for the future quarterback the New York giants. Did you just say ally should have been practicing getting benched what he was. GonNa do no. I said you mentally prepare yourself of course if if if you're married and your spouse moves out and says oh I think we should do is trial separation day when it happened. I don't know the mental prep in that world. No no no of course but but if that happens then you should be mentally preparing pairing for the divorce papers to be filed and even when those papers were filed. Maybe it's devastating but you've been mentally preparing when you play as well as he lie in and you're a superstar in this league here an accomplished player. You don't think someone's GonNa take your job when they draft him. It's like man. I'm getting ready to play. Eli Thought just like Don. I'm doing play another couple of years so there is no preparation didn't when I took Anthony Carter spot and took every all his shining. He didn't mentor me. He didn't stay after after practice either gentlemen so you write that. Ain't allies job to stay after practice. Nick is wrong in that. That is extra. That's because Eli is a special human being when all around the national football league when guys lose their job. We don't hear that sound bite. You know something. He stayed after work. You know some a lot of times. They Storm All oh all. He left practice today after getting bent so yesterday I would say easily is one of the five days in Eli Manning's career. It's is gut wrenching because you come near. You still have to face the media and the roles have totally flop and your ability. You didn't lose your ability overnight. This guy didn't beat him. How like he didn't even have a chance this year. If you look at that what they did in two games didn't depend on Barclay. What did he lose his job and what Daniel Jones. The Coats said. I had a gut feeling your gut is. When you draft a guy in the top ten yoga is he's going to play this this year so they decided to do after we one or two? US down. The matter is that right but what I went through yesterday is not a normal day all right. I've I've gotten benched and I've gotten divorced and they not they not decided to eight fair enough. Maybe it was an awkward analogy but the point that I'm I'm making and I will stand firm on this is if Eli Manning was not mentally preparing for the day. He loses his job then he's foolish I don't I I. I don't know anyone in the League mic and I've been watching these guys get benched. No one was ready for it. Even though you draft a guy all right when Danny Green brought let me into his office and said I'm getting ready turn to leadership of this team over to Randi malls and the Dante colpepper is much as I knew that was going to happen there. There was nothing to get me ready for those words when it hit me that I had lost all my power and so so maybe the moment even if you have been ready eighty four to come. We're thinking you're ready for it to come can be a shock to the system but the wind the quarterback position is obviously different then what happened with you. Anthony Carter and obvious and clearly clearly way different than when they drafted because after they draft the rain. You didn't lose your job. You want four more five more great years with the Vikings when you win. When a team drafts a quarterback like you you said in the top ten you know he's going to play. I'm not saying that wasn't a devastating moment for Eli that he that he didn't think I deserved a a few more weeks. Even though this should have happened a couple years ago instead of a couple weeks latest just do this to the morning. Eli Got when the Patriots were undefeated feed. He went on TV. I was only network I had one of my colleagues. Say This is the greatest football team that's ever been ever been assembled best team. I've ever seen into day. They mark their day. They go undefeated and we'll go down in history realized that in his hotel room and listen to all that and went out there and slade that drag that's the same in guy they got benched now so we have to appropriate some of the things that he's been able to accomplish with wow that must've been. It's it's bigger than you can imagine all right. I don't expect people to understand. I don't expect people to be like you know something to be like done this and that it's a rare rare opportunity unity. I can guarantee you guys this. I guarantee you. Fox couldn't bring no buying here for Y'all to mentor. Hey I want you all to sit on the side and make them better why y'all know y'all all sitting over there and you know you better than what's wrong with that because I assume it is it is not even apples to oranges. It's it's apples to bowling bowls. If you use your analogy if we did this show for fifteen years and five years ago we were at the peak we were the best in the world and each of the next five years each year after that it got worse and it got worse and it got worse and then Fox said hey you guys wouldn't think it's you though whether we wouldn wouldn't if Fox then said Hey. There's this young hotshot broadcaster we love. You'RE GONNA SPLIT REPS with him. He's going to be on the show a lot if I didn't have have in my head in that moment okay. This guy is brought on to replace me. It doesn't mean the moment that I get. The PINK SLIP isn't devastating but if I haven't prepared for that mentally I haven't been doing. I've been doing myself a disservice and as far as a lot of guys do storm out of the building you're right but one of the reasons the giants decided to show Oh. I would say extra loyalty Eli and not ask him. Take a pay cut and not them this off. Season is because they had faith that win. This Day came would act in two weeks ago the owner said I would be it'd be a great year. If Eli p played the whole year. Daniel Jones didn't play so they just kept lying to them if they said this was a fair competition Asian. When did he win the job when I agree with you on that of course but but but if we knew that no and to see so if it's not right then it's not going to sit with you if he had four games where he stunk it up. He could be like you know. I it is time for me to move on but when they move onto you after two weeks like it's just not fair and even though you might not know when it's not fair it's not fair. And what did yesterday was above the coal. That's the reason why he's got captain right and that's the reason why he's got that Walter Payton. It's not because he just chose to one day. I'm just going to be a nice guy. This who allied manning is I've been saying it for a long longtime and that is part of the reason why the giants did give him grace because he's been a class act and yesterday when it was the most difficult I would argued the most difficult day of his career. He sold nothing but class. That's all I'm trying to do the magnitude of what he went through yesterday when you lose your job optus someone who does not have more ability than you. That's what I'm representing here today. Are Let's leave it there. Thank you for listening to the first things first podcast.

I encourage you to the same so what I mean is right. Now when you're listening think about what you WANNA get out of listening to this episode like. How can this help you? You might be thinking. I love personality Nelly Tests. I want to know my sexual one or could be. I really don't argue myself. Pleasure during sex and I'd love to have some guidance my intention for this show is I want to give if you guys insight into describing how you experience sexual pleasure would it brings out of you and how you can use a jumping off point to figure out what you actually we need in the bedroom. Our guys enjoy the show. We got some sex in the news the in into it's been quite a week. Let's talk about this red thing. People are turning to read it to figure out if they have an sti so apparently thousands of people running around it to get a crowd diagnosis to sublet. It called R. S. T. Not and if found that fifty percent of posts were explicitly requesting a crowd diagnosis and thirty one percent included picture of the symptoms. which which someone like? I mean I. I don't WanNa be just randomly sitting there. And then people are posting pictures of their whatever's warts. And all we have to. It's like you have to like click. Click in the PO in the Post. And then you have to click on a link to injure and then you have to have an IM- juror account to view the photo mine. I just like it clicked on it in the photo came up. Oh really in my APP. Yeah maybe because Oh you know why because it wasn't doing it on the APP the APP mine just like Click Konda. I click on this photo. And I'm like okay. And then click on the click on the post and then it's like a picture and post there now we're all there's there's one on lips no thank you clicked it. Oh Glad my can't see that far in this moment but like the thing is people were told what I like is people are set told get it get a second opinion by Dr but it's on stop people from going there and like this is okay. The downside is a misdiagnosis super detrimental to the person asking and then their sexual partners after if they choose not to get medical treatment or say I've got this problem and they found a bunch of people and read it. Where do like is it? Opens a conversation lessons a stigma around Saxon Sti since it is a popular threat. I mean there's I wasn't people on their who've done this overtime but but I feel like the reason we are doing this because they don't want to go to their doctors because they're really embarrassed talking to the doctors about sex so like I'll go on reddit which recommend no no. It's like your hypochondriac and you're reading like web MD.. That's me either niche. I totally would be like wait. Do I have something down there like right now. I'll probably look. That's excellent Nick Right. Hey you know. We're we're both clean and does that as he thinks Dr Start to. Its though right and now I'm like now Amaechi. Oh my God I get tested again gun wait. I know I'm okay but oh my gosh I have a work down there too. I maybe I should go to this and ask everyone and I am the problem a lot of the right exactly. She's like did you see me on the red the red on the right. I just love when you do. She's only read it. the TD nasty. I is not a is not a death sentence dumb. We did a great podcast for him but senators from same-day Sti testing. which is you know she she she really talks about it? In a way that I think is a mix of sense that it's hard to talk to your partner. If you have something going on and how to get tested if you have not gotten tested you can do it in the same day. Same they asked us which is cool. I will say though on Reddit that there is a sub ready for people that have STD's but are trying to date people so it's like a support uh-huh oh that's cool so it's like a separate sub. Reddit think they use these pictures to like swiped like swipe through my APP people. STD's like here's my words. What ears the opposite of pick a mattress wasn't expecting your lips with words on it? God Nay I know. I'm just picturing an APP because I think there is an absolute dating site. Oh you're going to be vulnerable. Well all the flesh will. It's more because it's like. Some people might only feel comfortable dating someone else. Mostly if you have like herpes whichever H V S V one or H V me too. I can see why that would work. Because then you wouldn't have to worry about passing it off to your partner and then they understand and you don't have to go through the awkwardness. Yeah no it makes sense you guys. Listen there's a Lotta sites forever where they say the ones with the is it. The farmers which is the most popular dating site there ever farmers only because farmers are having the most excuse. This came out a couple of months ago but they did a study on occupations and farmers have more sex than any other occupation and they have more Stamina Anna because insurance shorn all day. Well you know what's interesting that used to run all the time when I lived in Fresno and it was like meet far farmers only yet or or something like that and I was like Chris using that all because they also they all live like seventeen miles away from civilization they do. I know I remember for people in Sanger people in all over all over that Central Valley. What else he ought to do? I mean I feel like there's not a lot to distract. Yeah I mean all the houses if you're on a farmer miles those apart from each other have some technology wowed okay. Let's too low. I love want roommate. Eight Sir I know a townhouse anymore so I can really now. Yes see. That's what I don't do that. So bad true. Okay you guys. So here's something that's interesting. Apparently there's eleven sex personality types According to a sex expert we were reading through these. And I think it's interesting. Can you spot yourself there. Here is the The compressor so this is someone who uses sex as a stress reliever to blow off steam. Now I wonder if they're just saying like this is how they actually have sexual intercourse or just masturbation. 'cause I know for a lot of us just like having an orgasm can relieve a lot of stress I like the explorer. This person's always trying to find new paths to pleasure so they're always looking around. Like what can I do. That's what can I do. That's going to be interesting in new and novel which I think that a lot of I mean it's again it's I love. This is because it's like like find yourself from these live and different types and you might be one or two or three of them which I feel like I've been all these different times. Not all of them but many of them so the explorer. You want to try new things between the sheets have fun at take it too seriously. You're curious sexually. You're willing to learn you crave novelty you are exploring. Then there's the fair air trader and feel free to speak up here in the room fair trader generosity and a healthy give and take in the bedroom are crucial for the fair traitor. You expect your partner to meet your needs with enthusiasm Hasim and gladly do the same as long as you need. You want to know the apartment to his giving as much as you Andrey receiving and vice versa. It can throw you off in the sense if your partner isn't into it as much as you are so if your partner feels disconnected during sex you get caught in your head and you're unable to join experience. Yeah that's that's pretty accurate for myself exceed what about. I thought you dislike receiving if you could if I could but I do get I get a lot of pleasure from giving pleasure right like me when I give ahead like I get so turned on your sex. Just kidding I don't know I'm starting to think awesome but I'm also de compressor. Yeah just to release stress. You are too. That's how I I like 'cause like my only time that I'm truly truly fully in my body and working through anything is when I'm having so yeah so only time. That's why I think exercise would be good a few too. I know but I just have to have a fan hat. Oh my God I get. I get exercise induced migraines. Yeah I go to a gym that has the actual like fans on the machines. Oh okay cool because La fitness. A change with Jim. Yeah not that. I've gone a while but not all that either but that's the only ones I'll go to is the ones that have the fans like right there. 'cause I say yeah. It sucks 'cause he used to love hiking all the time and now it's like when it's hot out like I can't go hiking boots. Let's get like you can have sex any point. Those you're saying that doesn't give you a headache. Yeah and I guess that's pretty vigorous I would say I feel like it would be Jamie. They got guys calls with your sex tied. You see yourself in here triple eight nine four seven eight two seven seven so then this is the giver in Your Eyes Sex as a gift and you just want to share it with your partner owner and your partner's sexual experience their orgasm.

I am recently divorced in the past two years and over those two years. I've developed a really strong group of girlfriends and we're all have actually. They divorced now and I started dating one of my very close friends. Recent ex husband okay. and he's amazing and I think you know in these kinds of things you would hope that Aparna brings out your best right right after force because maybe they didn't right see. I think it's kind of a thing and we don't know what to do. How long has it been well kind of since July? But in September we took a little bit of a break. Because it's getting a a little too intense for me and I'm used to being very independent and I just wasn't ready for all of that. Okay and Kinda started back up again and it's much stronger down and it was. And how long have you been friends with this woman so you is your question like what do I do. Do I tell the friend is that your is that what you're asking because your best friend. He wants wants to tell her. I'm not ready to do that because I'm worried You know it could obviously jeopardize our friendship And and I need her like in my life at the same time. So wow how long have you. How long have you know how to handle it? Yeah this is a tough one. How long have you been friends? And with the the friend the girlfriend a couple of years couple years and you met the acts through her. Yeah Yeah I mean I just she. What kind of places she and in her life right now she dating someone else? No not and their relationship as access is not fantastic so I hear both sides sides and it's really hard to stay. This is yeah. This is a turn. This is tricky Michelle. I mean. Listen I think if you tell her you will lose her as a friend. I don't at least for now. You know who knows life is long you end up with this guy and they have kids together something like you know. You're the new step mom she'll come around but I think I mean they. They got divorced. Were a few years ago. How long are still working through it? Oh so it's very very recent. They're not divorced yet. Yeah Okay Michelle so you guys have been friends for a few years. You Bet the husband they act six months ago. You've been dating him. They're not even through the divorce yet. This isn't this. Yeah okay. So are you sh L.. Listen let me just save some things. I've heard here first of all you said you broke it off because it was too intense and then he for a month you stopped and then you came back and was even better right. But that's that's with everything like you. Stop eating chocolate for a month and then you have a hershey. She bought the Basilan I ever had so. I'm just saying that you have this built in intensity now that you took a break and and it's only been a few months and you don't really know this this guy. I know it feels like everything. I'm just telling you that you don't have all the information about this guy either and I mean the fact that now you know things on both sides ex she's is gonNa feel huge wjr violation huge. Like how could I trust you now. You're hearing both things and even if you don't share what they both say you know so I think you really gotta got to think about this. I mean you're gonNA lose her as a friend friends. She knows her Caesar's she does not. Yeah well right. But she doesn't. She doesn't know you're sleeping together. I mean would you. You'd have to just you'd have to be willing to break it off if you want to keep your friendship. That's just the story I mean unless she's you know I don't know what different kind of friend that'd be like I'm just happy phone love with my ex asshole husband i. I can't imagine that. So so you're gonNA laugh like just randomly. She said the other night achieved heard from her daughter that her dad had a crush on me. Oh to me. She's like she's like I heard the funniest thing so go said that he has a crush on issues like and if he does you can have them. Oh pay you well. That's interesting okay. Okay so yeah I think that she I think she might no. I think that's a sneaky way of saying like I heard something smaby. I mean the discussion. Run a little bit more authorized than that. What do you mean my daughter? My daughter timed and she's like yeah he was he was what she said he was like. My I don't want to give me my daughter. It's a couple of weeks ago. Okay so there you go. She knows she's trying to get it was she's trying to get that's her way of doing it. She's trying to see if you're going to come clean so I think she already knows knows. It's small town. Everyone knows everybody. She probably knows so I would. I would just have an honest conversation with her. Let her know what's going on. You GotTa do it. Everyone knows anything that makes it in a better place knowing that Well this is tricky. Michelle no I think that you have to let her know when you're going to go to her and say you might know this already but I've been senior ex husband and I think it's amazing and I'm really confused right now because I love our friendship and I care so much about you but I really think this is something so you know she might have given giving you an out by saying. Hey I heard he has a crush on you and she might have been saying dammit tell tell me tell me I don't know your friend. It just seems Kinda like but either way I'm telling you if you listen. I hear my accent. I'm going on the INSTAGRAM. I'm doing research I'm detective. We figured it out. She knows she might know. She has a hunch so I think what you say what you want. Maybe you sit on this for a little. You know a day or something but I. I think you've really got to think about it. Because would you pick hammered. You prefer. You're just you could just be honest to say what you want to let on longer. No no longer be before eight like drop the bomb and like make all this drama went not be. Everyone's I think that everyone will. I think they'll find out. I think you have to tell her. I really think that's the right thing to do. She's your best friend to be honest now that I'm like she's your you said best friend. Not Acquaintance Fretwork kids our friends at school. Well you know not. I knew her once and third grade. Like your best friend's ex husband. It's just not I don't think it's cool. And if you were my best friend and you start and you didn't tell me for six months on so I would be really pissed off and I'm not sure he's the warning may or may not be but at your best friend's ex so I mean I think love is love and people go through these things all the time and so you gotta disfigured figured out Michelle just that would think long and hard about it. Okay do some journaling. That always helps me. Call me back if you WANNA talk about it though. I'm here every night. Okay Michelle I got you hang in there. That's a tough one. I'm like reading looking best friend. I mean I I feel like people know people. She probably does know by saying that. Your intuition win is like strong and I would. Honestly I don't like testing people are will do the same thing I would say I'd be like oh I heard this thing. Yeah I think we. I think we've all done things like that so because I'm not I'm not the judge. I'm not like moral police. Certain ways like. I'm not going to be like you should totally do you. Shouldn't I don't know what's right for Michelle like maybe he is the one there yes to be together and they found each other but I think about your best friend like my best friends are like I. I couldn't you know wouldn't do like like how did even start right. Let's Talk Stephanie. L. A. Fifty one wants to comment on Michelle's call. Hey Stephanie Hi how are you. I'm good so tell me what you think about this show. I might have missed a couple of details while I was dialing in but I think I've got it okay I'm divorced I'm divorced too and I I would say I dated a lot of divorce guys and especially when they're going through the divorce and fresh from the divorce there everything super intense chance right. You're so excited to find somebody that you connect with sexist grade. It's exciting because kind of forbidden and it's in this case and I don't know if it's GonNa laugh now and her friend. Best friend is at all wise to this which it sounds like she is I think she he needs to come clean right away or risk of the entire friendship and not just her friendship it if there is a group of girl. Exactly Hell's going to lose all those friends you're right I mean it's girl code. Yeah no Stephanie. I think you're totally right. Now that's a good. That's a good thing but this is helpful. You know what I mean. It's her best friend. Could lose the friends people talk about it. You know. My friendships are golden. They'd like there might. Yeah exactly and it's the guy is really the Guy Right. Then he'll be the guy in a a couple of years. Yeah exactly when everything is settled down I feel it. I feel you Stephanie. Thank you so much thanks for that I appreciate it. Yeah you guys do my girlfriend. I will not read my friends or they're like my family. I'm not gonNA fuck Alcatel's relationships okay. Let's talk to John Thirty three in South Carolina. Hey John Tell me everything. Hey how's it going. I'm good what's going John. Good well you know. I am a thirty three year old male from South Carolina as you mentioned I am what what I would call it a heterosexual male and I have had I have been with the same sex partners. I'm currently dating a serious girlfriend. you know. It's been a few years since I have had same sex encounters But as of late I've been kind of thinking about some of those encounters and I actually had a dream the other day just well well. It's it's like sometimes when I go to sleep. I think about those encounters an and then as well I had a dream in a day where it was my serious girlfriend and she happened to have a genus. I guess and In that dream you know We're we're in a in a car. But I let her in let that Phoenix enter my mouth in the dream and woke up next to her but You you know. I'm just really confused trying to figure out what how what's what's the what's what's going on. What's the best way to deal with what experiencing well John? Thank you so much for your honesty here for calling in about this because I kind of see John. There's really not a problem here. You just had a dream about you know a penis Chris. What's your girlfriend and there's no problems unless you've been feeling that lately you've been wanting to be with men again okay back to that? That's what it sounds like to me. So maybe that is a sign. And you said you're thinking about it when you're you know before you go to bed at night and so really it's about. Is it the kind of missing that you're thinking you would like to explore it. Do you feel like it's something that you WanNa talk to your girlfriend about. We've had conversations and I've discussed it with with her and you know she's kind of aware of course it's one of those things where we just don't really talk about too much but it's it's it's it's been discussed and Dan. I guess what I'm having troubles with as you know I am I. I'm wavering. Or trying to figure out like just how you know how now I want to progress or regress I guess maybe the best thing. Because I think you're more in touch with still no I don't if you think it's a regression. I think that we all have been flow with our sexual desires our sexuality. It's a spectrum Kinsey said so you don't have to like put any labels on on it but that's was a part of your life and now you're you love this woman you're with your really committed to her but you still have other sexual desires right. which is totally healthy? So I feel like it. It might not be so black and white if you could maybe go back to your girlfriend and talk to her and let her know that you know. I've been having some of these fantasies again and we're how would it look to you John when you think about it. Do you think that you would like. Would you like her to be there. Would you like to have a threesome with another man. Would you rather just have a date with a man and come back to her would have sex with a man in your perfect John in my perfect John Scenario would be where. I don't think I could do you. It where she was there. I just I feel like that would take away from our kind of experiences and encounters that we have and yes I do. I love her very much. But you know I. There's there's times where I think back to those days I guess and it's it's it's it's very common because you think about it before you go to bed so that's also going to be the thing but I do think this is like a primary sexual urge free so John I'm thinking what about this and it's like I I I I just want to say I'm so glad you called in because it's gotta be so confusing and you know. How long have you been with your girlfriend three years? Okay I'm just going to recap real quick though that you've been with for three years in the past you've been with men and now you're thinking God it's coming up more and more before you go to bed you're thinking about it and then you had a dream about like you know being her with the penis what's going on. What does this mean so Janis say that just means it like a part of your sexuality that has felt good to in the past has been maybe the little repressed by you? Maybe you're just like I'm really with a woman and if I'm with a woman that I can't be with a man and then that's confusing but the good news is two thousand nineteen and I think that there's a lot got more acceptance around this a lot more. I'm here for you to tell you that that it's okay to to to want both and that really would be a matter of having a religious just like healthy conversation with your girlfriend and just saying it's you know I love you. This has been coming up for me lately and perhaps you guys could even do some like. I don't know if you'd be ready for this. But he was a role playing. Hang around it are you. I don't know if you're interested her wearing a strap on. I'm not sure what you're pleasure is. What's your fantasy is you know I We've done that and I would say that that. Is You know more what I kind of found is my role when I did when I did. Do those experiences. How come and I think? Maybe that's why it's so confusing. Just because I don't I in this role I'm more of the dominant. And instead of being in that more submissive roll I guess yeah super confusing you know and and I think I definitely I definitely had time think I prefer I that that kind of role you prefer the role of being dominant the role of being submissive submissive. Got It okay. So so maybe just be. More Ito talked to her. And say you know what I've realized those times when I'm more submissive really turns me on. I love being submissive so I just filling. May We could kind of work that in our sex and maybe John. Maybe you'll find that just that will be what you need to do. The man but that feeling of being submissive is what you want. There's feelings that we want to have sex often and we don't identify with them. We're just like oh I want this after that but maybe you just want that feeling of letting go and being submissive so that the well we've done that and it's it's I think you're you're close and that's I guess why so confusing because we luckily have a very very open relationship with understanding with her and wish she understands that But you know at this point in time. It's we've done those things things get. I'm still having well. Caesar trains or thought. Yeah well it sounds to me like then. It's time to have a conversation with her. It sounds like she's a loving accepting girlfriend and maybe listen. I think that we've stern narrow view of what relationships are we think monogamy or it's over but I'm telling you there's a a lot of relationships that are really healthy where you get to explore and like a non monogamous arrangement where maybe you are able to have sex with men outside the relationship. But she's still. Oh okay being your girlfriend. Maybe there's things that she wants. Maybe she's got some ideas about how she could enhance her pleasure to. Maybe you could have just like a really healthy conversation around it. That doesn't get solve with one conversation ongoing but I feel like I don't the answer. Isn't there yet. But I think with more healthy communication and talking to her about it you will get there. 'cause you deserve to have their needs met we all do okay. John that How'd you recommend about having that conversation if we've kind of dabbled around it? How what's the best sway to tell her that? That's what I feel like is needed or wanted and I think just explaining to her that that it's a it's a fantasy that you have to be the and you don't want her in the room though you said so I think you have to okay so John. I think what you have to do is just say I've been thinking a lot about our sex life and our relationship and you lead with all the things that are really the things that you mean. Do you want to stay with her. Do you want to be with her John. Is this the woman that you WanNa be with your certain fear like Mary her kids. Yeah I I that's what I that's the plan. Well right but is that what okay. So you're and you're also yeah. How old is job thirty three? You're young still John so I feel like you don't decide that I'm just trying to understand where you're on this whole thing but I feel like it's really saying this is really hard for me Babe I love you. I love a relationship. I know we haven't talked about this much. But for me having a healthy sex having open communication with you is so important I think for both of our pleasure and I've been thinking lately more about men and I don't I love you and and I wanna be with you and I'm trying to figure out if there's a way that perhaps I could experiment and I'd love to know where you want. And then just see what goes from. There explained to her what that might look like. Or maybe you just just open up the first conversation is I think that's the conversation John you gotta do it. You've got to be honest with her. And hopefully you're with you know we we we gotta have it and it's it's threatening to her okay. So if she's threatened by it that makes sense to me and so maybe for a Lotta people. Listen when something comes up. That's uncomfortable. Our first reaction is to be threatened is to doubt it is to say no but she might need some more information around like what would that look like. It doesn't mean that you don't love her and you don't want to be with her. It would be once a month or it would be once you know. I don't know what it looks like for you but for her to understand that for you. It's not a low you don't want to marry a man you just want to have sexual shaw experiences with the man and then perhaps explore other things that that she's interested in but John just gonNA start. I'm not can't tell you it's going to be easy but you're allowed to be vulnerable and real and tell her that you know it's not easy but this is what you got what you want to say just like you call into the show which is so brave awesome dawn and I'm here for you every night. Lemme how goes thank you so much for your call John. I appreciate appreciate it so much. Could talk to Anna Forty eight in New Mexico. Hey Anna thanks for calling there. Hi You're taking my call. Of course what's going on so I am. Yes I'm forty eight and I'm dating a guy that's thirty which is kind of different anyway but So we've been having sex for a while now and this weekend. He asked me the question said that he wanted me to teach him How to perform oral on me that he had only done it twice and the second time but he did it was he had a that experience and he never wanted to do it right again? And so like we're getting at that point where you know where we're comfortable with each other other. And so yeah he asked me. That's amazing. I love that he asked you that. Okay and you're like so. Do you know what to tell them. It's have you ever taught any okay. So do you know what you like or like during sex. Well Yeah I kind of like what you guys we're talking about. I kind of like you know teasing a little bit. I hate when a guy goes like straight to the Clinton. Yeah why the worst over but yeah it's like too much and it's like teasing is awesome But I I guess I don't know how to who I'm to touch me. Or how to like freight now. This is such a question. Yeah I mean and I think that this is a really Grew we such a great experience for both of you you to be able to literally show him. You could say this is the kind of touch I like. You can show on his body. I like it when you you take your hand and rob his inner thigh and say this is what I love when you robbed. My interest is like this and and you can Explain things to him about now as far as going down you like. Do you like your Labia Do you do you like would he kind of you wait to get to the clearest. You enjoy fingers like where do you want him to start with his tongue. You could even do it to him. You know what I'm saying saying like when you could use his penis as an example of licking you know even though it's not a vulva but you could just show him in touch him in the way with the same pressure that you like and then you guys could build from there. And then when he's doing a new ask if he's cool with feedback and then reinforce the things you like like that's good that's good maybe little softer here and you know I love that. He asked just so you could just have never taught anyone this before. So let's learn together. Oh that's awesome. I feel like I have a good opportunity to kind of hate to say this but trains.

"The Welcome back to the NTR network the doctor here with her Rosia Joseph and perish to discuss Dr Trek the lower deck's new animated series on CBS, all access, the network that. Star Trek seems to be building for them. It's been a while since I've been on the Mike with you guys I know I didn't do picard because I just it was just too much going on with the shutdown and everything. So have you been. Hanging in there working working in more work than. Saying. Yeah making it So we got the notice that think a while ago least we my director appointment for remote for the rest of the year. So that's a good thing. I just know that I don't have to leave the house until twenty twenty, one I. Have to start going in every Monday starting this mall. And I did a test. I did a test run just to us down my office and they get some stuff done and is already a frigging nightmare Of trying to walk down the stairs and there was someone on three kids on the stairs along with a person who works in the building who does not have a mask and the policy on campus, you have to wear a mask inside buildings and I'm like Ok guys, can you get off the salesman trying to go downstairs? Why did this take off his mask and walk back upstairs from I'm sorry I couldn't hear you and he wasn't being mean he literally like I can't hear you Mike so you don't your mask helps you to hear better if you don't put that mask. Ask, off the stairs I can come downstairs. and. And the students just started moving back in this weekend this is about to be a frigging nightmare. Yeah. Oh my mom just sent to university vcu is remote, but my sister's an athlete. and. So she is an Wisconsin and they're not doing follow sports for her supporters springs. She's on campus now. And my brothers a freshman in high school and we're trying to see if we can get him home school. So he doesn't have to go into classes in Virginia because. It's now. Survive cancer she can't she. Can't have that. She can't reset it all. But anyway. So yeah, this for those of us working in higher read is about to begin. Strike copied streets with you. I'm not unionize. We don't even have shared governance, the Muck, my job classification. So there's Falconi Senate and her staff Senate and we're considered avenue. Could we have? No share governors are not covered by go oh Yeah. It's okay. It's okay as. As like you know what if push comes to shove my BMI's over thirty so if I have to I will pull that card and be like I'm high risk I can't come in got to be remote. A do what you gotta do. I've been losing weight I'm let let me start in Simos sugars some. Okay. These pounds I'd lost back. You're. You're losing awaiting is coming to me. Right exactly. My my my doctor was like Yo. You got to lose some weight. I know, I, know you all are stuck in the House I get the cold nineteen but right you got some weight. Anyway. So Star Trek lower deck's. Is Reverend if I didn't know any better, I think he was like a parody along the lines south park or something is basically about the folks we don't hear much from on the major shows. One of them is clearly the daughter of the captain and another high-ranking official on starfleet and just their shenanigans. What were your thoughts on these first two episodes? I loved it. It was like fun I felt like joy and it was still very star trek at the same time. and. The way they've done I know is the same kind of animation style is rick and Morty. So very familiar with that style. And I was just I was laughing. It was really fun. It poke fun at some of the characters is under the trump's with his star that people have been trying to talk about in the fandom but taking it in a very serious yet fun manner and I as like this is a good way for young people to be introduced star Trek. And still be Star Trek. So I'm glad this his on. Okay. Joseph he's still with us a her SOM thing job. I'm here I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode I'm and. I'm like you know it it. Yeah. It's a bit irreverent. It's. A bit. Poking Fun it while loving it at the same time. That's the best way I can describe it. What about you? What were your thoughts? Yes same. I. Loved it It's a breath of fresh air because you know the the other two star trek series are really heavy and really you know directed and you know you need you need a little levity and so it also appreciate the fact that you know not only they rebuilding star trek the brand but there successfully being all things all people so you know you got your sort of. Jump in right now, you don't need to know a whole lot with discovery, but it's still a really solid star trek show. Got A card for the people who are really really nerdy about the lore. Now, you got this which I agree with With Rosia this is this is this will bring the the teenagers in two star Trek, and it's got that sense of humor and like I love it it's cute. Okay. So I wasn't going to do it episode episode breakdown but highlights teat from you guys from the let's start with the first episode where we're introduced to everyone all the different characters Even the bridge officers are somewhat like. Extra I noticed. Was it just me noticing that they were extra? Did you just they are absolutely insane but I was reading something. And It it stuck with me. You know yes, they are all. Betsy she crazy. Okay. Did just completely off kilter. But they're all incredibly competent at what they do. Yeah. They are they're very brilliant. They're very capable volunteer. Their nerds. Great can we also talk about that scene in the canteen? Winter. Came back inspecting. And the to. Break. In like a horror movie, they're just sitting there chatting my over holding hands. Are-. Like Hill is freezing over ownership and there have Miki. I also like the fact that it was very they meet into the fact that everyone here is competent, but they're always. There's nine tests they talk like scientists, Exhau-. Quick engineers they love the late the what's his name of? Grefe referred. He's like. I really just I just wanted to. Focus on what he wants to do in his nerdy stuff that maybe not everyone understands why he's obsessive. Do this your thing. That yet episode to when he was handling the board that was frigging amazing game. I love the fact that like when he was changing careers and you thought that they would be hard on him, they kept celebrating him. I don't WANNA be. Your while whatever you do, you're going to be the best that different. You don't WanNa be here. Well, that's great that you figured out what it is you want to do and we support. I WANNA be partying. And this actually has a basis in. In the military as well because when you first come up, you know sorry tells US military minute and weird shit that's still When you're especially in the navy when you don't have a specific rank specific job panel like information systems technician for example, you're considered a deck seaman and you get to decide do I want to actually still say on just deck don't WanNa be in radio. Do I WANT TO BE IN OPS? Do I WANNA be maybe an engineering? WanNa work with the gun. You know it's. That was a a a very good. Look at what actually does happen own actual chips. And I also love the fact that our girl Don Lewis who was on a different world who is I'm GonNa get you sucker plays the captain. And also that Rebecca remains husband is the voice of captain ransom I mean commander ransom about that school like Hope you wife Doing Star Trek together doesn't door will. Also like like the little subtle references, they have a different characters they brought in like the doctors from like the the Star Trek animation series, the the the cat species can't pronounce it starts with a K. and. Characters e like there was like bullying. Joins. There's trills is like they help flesh out the space of the show and the series making more interconnected where you don't necessarily can do that so much with the light actress shows it doesn't make up in times of that I. also like that they established that this is firmly in the TV series timeline as opposed to the movie time line with all the name drops from episode one like, Oh, the void you gotTa do the Janeway maneuver and dino about warfare what about troy and her catsuit and blow Is A call. That was great. I Love Mariner, she is hysterical. Oh. This our cast Dick. Logan. Canceled this. I'm going to greet people from now on. I don't know yet. Used but. Yes. I liked it. I mean going back to the theme of everybody being hyper competent. I love how Mariner is a slacker but she's the most competent slacker you have ever seen in your life. Yes. It's so great. And gap connects, Klingon. Connects for randy connect. Own. Yes she seems something. Then I like the fact that she she's willing to help her fellow person without being too obvious like with the back door deal of the Frankie Galicia was talking about it was obvious like she knew he was a frankie but not a bully was like Campbell is going on here just staying in it, and then you realize it was just like a whole setup deal and I doubt about her because I'm sure that's not that she's going to do with each of the members but I liked that she used like, okay this is this is what you need to do. You put it unclench man. Also they've established at this present well, for them present day you know what I mean 'cause like discovery is essentially pre kirk, right but this is like post everything. I watched the SEC CCC. Presentation, it happens like immediately after nemesis. Okay. Perfect. Is there is. Yeah. So and plus that they do the titling of the end in the beginning saints lettering style as Star Trek next generation I thought that was like a nice. To the cannon is. In House a kind of a head to the audience like what time period you are in. Yeah. Maybe even a salad shit to three doses. In in the style of the original of the day enterprise St. So you guys looking forward to from this it looks like we're going to. Oh we'll just if you got a meet Sweeney, it looks like we're getting a ten episodes. No twenty two. Seasons Okay Yeah, okay. So we're getting ten this season through over. And then we don't know when the next season's coming up. But what are we looking forward to I? Wonder if this is gonNA. Be like episode by episode, which I'm perfectly fine with if we don't have the matic like through line. I'm good with episode of the week. Yeah kind of prefer that this show doesn't have that because it is comedic at a yeah I. I'm fine with the being episode by episode. Yeah, I think it allows for people to like if they're new to the series to be familiar with. Star. Trek. But if you been here for a while, it's Kinda with still within the style union episode at the Sonic and just having fun in dismay learning about the characters in was going on in this part of the universe if you will I would like to see them like. The way they wing onto the planets in the details, the planets. Actually going to different plants and seeing like the different types of civilizations and stuff like that. I Really WanNa know mariners backstory I wouldn't know how she got to the point where she's just kind of a slacker and her mom's getting her mom's trying to kick off this. Have you seen her parents. Or parents are Mr and Mrs Starfleet and right and She got to be sick and tired of that shit. That's a good point. Is the acting out? She's a preacher's kid essentially. She's basically features skit. She's been so but now the jackass. That's a good analogy. Yeah. I mean, we've gotten hints about it, but I think probably drag it throughout the season but she's just right now one of my favorite characters on on the television show right now. Oh, missing. I'm always here for the black girl so. Absolutely. I would love to see more of the dynamic between her in the captain like receives on the the heads to the. For the preview for the whole series if you are for the season, but I would love to see her interactions with their mom or dad or whatever just. What would that relationship is because I'm sure it's very hard to be as you say, you know the preacher's kid. You know and right now as like the rest of the crew is not aware of that right now. I also like Captain. Freeman. I mean she knows her crew is that she a crazy and extra? But she also knows that they're competent. So it's like she's she's Toan that live with tweed like keep them in line. And I gotta let them be who they are and and sort of this other understanding that like it probably is not possible to to add sanity to ship. With the people that she has. You know in charge. Nature. Their aging. Question, though there was something happened in episode that I feel like I, don't know if I missed it or get glossed over. There that little light that kind of flew through or into the captain, and then I feel like they never went back to it is it just? Go back to it. I wouldn't be surprised. We have more of that in the future. Okay. So it wasn't me I wanted to make sure I wasn't imagining things. I would come back episodes like they're. They're going to play the long game with that one Well, so much for not. It'd be an episode of the week 'cause that setting up a thread. Which is I'm sure they'll pull it off. I don't think he's GonNa be like a I. Hope it's not dominant storyline and they maybe might be something they resolve like really quickly. Yeah. Because it seems like the resolve of the thing that I'm dragging things out everything is within that episode like Zombie thing ended within the episode then getting the General was at the end of the south. And stuff like that. Yeah. That's true. That is true. Larry's about away. Generals, absolutely? Hilarious. I love drunk clean on. The only thing the only criticism I would have on the show in something that. I that GPS as nine really even enterprise address was like there's different ranks than officer. And it seems like everyone's an instant everyone like we've seen so far is a lieutenant in. Crewmen or chief of operations. Well. They said is the lower deck. So but yeah, you're right. Usually the instance wind up being close in key positions. So when you think lower deck's, you're thinking crewmen at least i? I was thinking that as well. So I hope that we will see that aspect of like there's crewman there she reparations or something to that nature that everyone's just a incinerator lieutenant or something like that yeah yeah. So we have this through October and then I'm trying to see something here. 'cause they. They wrapped up discovery so. They announced the official date is October nineteen. So. Basically, right. After this ends discovery starts backup. It says the series premiere Thursday October Fifteenth. Yes Yeah because they even dare social media was like we're going I. Think it was twenty four weeks of straight star Trek. Yeah. Absolutely name. And I I just like Kooky trailer. A little trailer, another one. Now needed our need it I. Know It's GonNa. Be Good. Yeah I don't need it. Did anybody switching gear do well does anybody have anything else about lower deck's I don't but I think you got something about something else I'm GonNa let you said that. The only other thing I was wondering is that the announced animation show the Star Trek project is going to be the in the same animation style. That's a question that's the only thing walking sec dope part. Remember they were studying like they were just talking general like may announcement of what? Like a little bit of a hint of what is going to be about We jumped out in classes various in space. but wondering is going to be in the same. General animation style they're going to be consistent which I'll be fine with or if they're going to switch it up. It is this is going to be on all access. It's GonNa be Nick Right. Darren Nickelodeon but. Paramount Viacom adverse together. In an CBS access is going to change paramount plus I don't have you guys notice that like. Yeah. So if you go to CVS access now they've been kind of putting stuff on CBS access I have that. Yet they just did like a little blurb that they plan on. Access to fairmount plus and there were gene all their little separate streams they had yet because I did see the ESA phone they're. I. See again. Go. On. With the paramount blessed. Disney worried about them. Kind like knows. That's Kinda. Like Netflix being worried about these folks showing Netflix's like Oh. That's cute. So I don't know where nickelodeon falls into that because it is part of paramount's I don't have is GonNa be part of that packaging they're doing with the streaming service but so far it's supposed to be on the load the. Broker. So. Should I so I've currently I currently have all access to Amazon. So I'm thinking maybe I should decouple those in. Go Straight to the source stream service probably you know because. It's weird with the way the packaging stuff. Off into something officially comes out. His my now just media words. Is when they could probably do is just. Switch it when you one day you click on just paramount plus. The Amazon. Interesting. So far so good yet because I don't know now like what is it like peacock or Disney's not on the TV's are apple TV's, or there's somebody that not on. Amazon right now with the fire ship. I I have apple TV. So I mean Hbo Max has. been going back and forth with it. Okay that's what it. So there solid hold on because I was thinking the same thing in those like was wait until everybody's official. Die It's so far so good though I mean I was really antsy about the number streaming services, but it's it's sort of working itself out With you know Disney Hulu? ESPN. Deal that was pretty neat peacock I don't have to pay anything for because I still have cable So yeah, so so far I'm not ripping my hair out with the amount of commitment involved hopefully with hair Martius over, they'll have a deal a similar deal that peacock us. We'll. See. But if so far so good. And I think you know talking about Netflix's like the the last dance team with ESPN. I think we're gonNA start seeing where they'll be like cross platforms. Certain shows is that because I think it really benefited both. They give you click on Netflix glass dance is still on the top ten and I something there is produced by ESPN which is owned by Disney. So I think it's to be a lot of not everything but they'll be a lot of off platforms of certain shows like would it started off now where Netflix's was licensing things from ABC and stuff like that I think people got nervous that when people start launching their own platforms that was gonna go away and that you'd have to buy all these extra subscriptions but honestly Especially, with the Economic Times being with are now it doesn't make sense to burn those bridges. We'll still see it. Yeah. Those those for he w has a deal Annapolis athletics to wear stuff dropping agents. She'll, which has ended are the they're gonNA draw supposedly September the final season, and so you can see all that on Netflix. Right, that deal has been in place for years with ABC's Andy, the about a shield. So So I don't think I understand why people are nervous right now. But I think there will be some kind of for me. Stuff is it benefits both companies and I, think it keeps the regulators. Of their business for now oh, by allowing that. Keeps although right now the regulators are being deregulated so But they seem to have like a bug of their but about TAC. Yeah. Going out for Amazon facebook and all that stuff. So. We'll see. Anything else before we. Wrap. Up. I was just wondering if anybody watched the SEC Presentation. I've not been I've been swallowed with work unfortunately and I'm behind on everything. So. I was supposed to do write ups and never got around to So sorry audience and never get around all right ups because been working into the night and I'm kind of tired. Done without so. Not. A whole lot of read me It was a lot of fan service. There was a table read for discovery for. The last episode where Section thirty, one in the enterprise and discovery went to battle one another. That was really cute. They did an interview with The Castle car was really neat What they did say was that and I think this is probably already out knowledge already out there but Straight world they've already broken down ten episodes. So that's moving right ahead so I can't wait for that. Amount like posted a where he shaved his Co. Been Beard. going to candidate. So. Short is it's not something that's essential for you to to watch like I say the Android a whole lot of red meat, but it is. It's fan service and it's really good fans is in you know if you have the time I recommend I, recommend everybody watch it. Really it was really nice. It was really nice to see all of those. Actors back virtually and You know it just seems like they love working together. You know everything just. Its estimates of how well Star Trek is doing right now. The only last thing to say is for any audience member that's abroad The star Trek Lord decks because of Covid is a push this show up early the streaming rights for that is not exactly, very, very clear yet, but they're working on it to make sure that people can get the series soon enough. But the first episode where Lisa Premiere episodes on. Youtube. Globally. So, if you're abroad Lisa again, a kind of a hint of what we're talking about and they're trying to work on the distribution it's GonNa take time for that. But hopefully, they plan on these by the end of the year for the international rights to settle in everyone be able to see the series Nice. In my last hit is, did anyone see the UFO? Bore Cube in front of the Sun and NASA the government released. No. No but at this point, come on. I'll welcome our board overlords I know resistance from me. Ceylon work out I don't care at this point. They're. Releasing these weird bet fell information. And one of them pictures is like this unknown object that looks like a board queue in front of our son. Oh, I, remember that mean from early on in the Pan DIMIC. The board Queens never mind y'all got it. We'll be back another time. Repeatedly on twitter and I know you guys have seen it. I hope people now understand why I feel that Eliot invasion movies are utter bullshit like intelligence species would just wait for us to kill ourselves. All Right which we Job of right now, nobody in front of our solar system with the little yellow jacket in the stock side in this pushing moving people along like don't don't come this way not just keep it moving. Keep ground go around. Talk just give it time. But I just love that there's so much star Trek. Now I know Kobe's delays and stuff. But everything like like the star. Trek new world they have that written season two cards Britain they announced way early in the year and then outs Kirkman like. Pretty much burn it like season four's going to happen in their rating that now for discovery. Section thirty one you know is written dish to go into production like there's so much star trek now for everyone who has a Taser need and it's it's just a wonderful time I never thought that this would ever happen. Yeah. No, I agree I agree. Yeah I yeah absolutely. I mean I don't want to say that that starched your felt like star Trek's best days were behind them because I think It such that it's always kind of gone through like dry periods and then it blows up again. But the the fact that like. Doc said they are essentially building. CVS. That is amazing. That's amazing yeah. People Love Star Trek in a what. Decade and is almost as nearly a six decade. Entity. Every, every decade has had a star Trek. and. The and the way that they're approaching it now I mean we've talked about this endlessly when we're talking about discovery, but you know they are really. They're really doubling down in this age on when the sort of Utopian aspects of mythology. Really, trying to make it a even if they asked the SEC presentation, they kept saying this is an inclusive story. This is an inclusive environment, the way that gene roddenberry attended and we're not going to depart from this. You know we feel some responsibility to be progressive and visionary and I, mean. You. Know it's. It's something that we should. We should expect from this franchise but I think it's not I. But I still think it's something that we can't take credit for granted and I still think something should be applauded. Right, I agree. Agreed. Any final thoughts before we wrap up. Hasn't here. I. Excited for the rest of the year for something good to finally happen and. L. Will see how the rest of the go. Oh same. So we'll be back in a few weeks with episodes. Let's say three through five everything can three to five. Yeah. Cool. All right. Thanks for chilliness everyone.

Hour 1: Brady & Bruce

"The? Morning, it is time to get up with Colin. Kaepernick at least one NFL team as interest, which one and what will it mean if they signed him? We're on it then. A Hall of fame quarterback has serious words of caution about what we can expect from these two legends this year. You'll hear it all. Hey, which of these quarterbacks has the best talent around him? That answer could decide the Super Bowl, and we having as we get up with you on ESPN starting right now from. Bristol on a Friday Mike. Greenberg here and delighted. You've chosen to get up with us. We welcome all of you who've been watching. Korean baseball will be with you until ten thirty. Thirty eastern this morning, so a little over two hours of get up for you, and then I. Take will come your way in its entirety. We begin with. Get up and go on a busy morning. NCWA Division One football oversight committee passed a six week practice plan on Thursday in order to kick the season on time. The plan now heads to the Division One Council for approval on June seventeenth with they're working towards it. The NHL players have announced that formal training camps with twenty four teams. Resuming play will begin on July tenth as long as conditions allow, League says it will determine the length of camp and the NHL actual return to games at a future date. The NBA is firming up the schedule for the Orlando Restart on Thursday, the regular season games now scheduled to resume July thirtieth fourteen of the twenty two teams that will be invited. We'll be eliminated within the first fifty three days of the bubble, and as far as team rosters go, they will look slightly different than what we're accustomed to. Teams will be allowed to bring as many as seventeen players to Orlando and playoff rosters will consist of fifteen players. Teams will also be able to sign free agents, both were and were not an NBA rosters this season to any open roster spots. Then, we get into the NFL seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters yesterday. He regrets not signing Colin Kaepernick back in twenty seventeen and while Carroll said he's happy with his current quarterback room, he did hint. There might be a team interested in signing capper Nick Right now. Some the after all of the time you know the years of the past, I'm never received a phone call about about. I never talked to another head coach about anybody about it until today I call today. I'M GONNA. Tell you what I got phone. Call today, asking the enquiring about situation so I know somebody's interested, so we'll see what happens with that. All, right so this feels like a good place to start this morning Louis. Riddick Jeff Saturday and our insider. Dan. Grazziano are with US right off the bat here and Dan. I will start with you. What Are we hearing about? The interest level in signing Colin Kaepernick right now. Haven't heard much about interest in cabinet until Pete Carroll said that yesterday. Don't know what team he's talking about and how serious the interest is! Calling around on all this stuff over the past week, where will the owners and teams come down on the Commissioner's comments on social justice and black lives, matter and and peaceful protests there I have been asking questions about Kavulich. Haven't been getting the sense that there's a strong chance of him. Getting back and I definitely don't think that we're going to see anything like we saw last November where the League tried to arrange. Arrange, a workout for him for teams in Atlanta. I think it's going to be up to an individual team to decide and make that decision to bring him in at this point, the team that called Pete Carroll yesterday. We don't know who it is a working to find that out, and ideally will figure out how likely it is before too long. All Right Dan Grazziano sit tight I want to talk to these guys. About two separate pieces of this Louis well I'll start with you because it feels like there were two separate stories with Colin Kaepernick. The first is just what it would mean in the bigger sense for copper to wind up on an NFL roster, Louis. How would you put that into words? Why think obviously Greenie there are people looking to the NFL to really make good on something that they created for years ago by blocking him out of this league, and not allowing him to continue his career, because of how they perceived you know him protesting racial injustice and police brutality and I think many people feel as though. In the end they owe him. They owe him big time and right now up to this point. They haven't made good on that day. Oh Him, the opportunity to come back and resume his career after having been taken away from them, for reasons, other than his play on the football field so I think for some people. It would be something that needs to happen for some people they. They would feel as though that it's not authentic assistant opportunistic move. It's something that they have done their proper risk assessment and they have assessed at this point in time. He's not quote unquote bad for business like they thought he was back in two thousand and sixteen back in two thousand and sixteen, so that's that's the number one thing that I think right now that people will really. Really have to kind of really just get straighten their head. Whether which way they fall on this and how they feel about this and you know i. kind of I kind of go back and forth obviously the NFL Osa much more than what they have given him, and he and he deserves an opportunity to come back to the NFL and play if he still wants to play which. which every indication is that he does they own that opportunity I just wonder whether or not you know people will ever really give the NFL, or whatever team it is, that signs him the credit that normally you would give someone considering the fact that it just seems like a very opportunistic. Move at this point in Time Jeff. What do you think it would mean if capper nick signed? Yeah I couldn't agree with Louis. More I think as you're talking about what cavern means to players in the locker room. You've heard guy's voice. Hey, we would love to see can get an opportunity and and what Dan said earlier about I think it will be. Individual teams eventually work him out but for some I it to Lewis's point. Does it come off? give you too as opportunistic because you finally give them a chance or years after this all began because now. Now, he's quote, not not bad for business, so think ultimately this will be a decision that happened to make for himself so very interesting to see how this thing plays out. If he does get opportunity, go workout routine and Dan this. Of course we'll be up to owners or an individual owner, but do you get a sense after Roger Goodell statement of a week ago tonight that he and the League office are feeling pressure to find a way to get cabinet back in. Again I, don't I think that? Look I think people acknowledge at this point that that it would be. It would be nice to find a way to get him back in because. His absence has become a stain on the league, and I think the workout that they tried to put together in November was an acknowledgement of that of like. Let's see if we can do something to sort of goose the process here that that being the perspective of the League office, but as we know, it didn't work out for a variety of reasons and I think there's there's probably a bad taste. Bad taste left in the league's mouth, and and in capper knicks mouth as a result of how that all broke down so I don't think we're going to see something similar. I can't rule out the possibility of a team deciding to do it. And of course that would be a huge story but I think to Lewis's point, we're really in a very different situation than we were three and four years ago when. Signing cabinet could be viewed as an opportunistic move versus a bad for business move I mean that's a complete reversal of how his presence on a roster would be viewed by the outside world and I, think that says a lot about what's happened here over the past month in not just football, but in the in the country, no question about it I, totally agree with that, so let's let's then turn our attention to the football piece of this and Jeff this time. I will start with you if you're on a team. And Your Team signed Colin Kaepernick right now as far as the football piece of it. What would you think you were getting? He's GonNa be. He's GonNa be backup quarterback to come in I I mean you know ultimately? He's out of the game for a number of years. You know most teams are set as far as their rosters are the way that they're I mean especially with Kobe Nov implications. That thing has had involved in teams virtual meetings all those different things. It would be very very difficult for him to get up to speed with any football team. This Florida kind of into it, and so you know as he's coming in, he would. That would be the role that I would expect The teams were bringing him in for and then is. Is that situation one that he fight for a starting role and I'm not sure from capper Nick's perspective. Is he looking to be a starter immediately what he'd be willing to take that role as a backup, and then come in get an opportunity to play, but I think everybody us. Bring him in right now. We'll be bringing him as that role that two to three qb working, being our room and help us with the knowledge that he has as a starter in the league. From from a game plan perspective, you'd think about what a backup quarterback does. It's not just what he does on the field. It's all in the meetings. If film down giving perspective, what East faced what teams have done against him in this look, and what teams beep it's foreigners might do so as I look at it from a strictly football perspective what he could bring to that that backup qb role could be very important for some football teams. If they decided that that would be, my must be or would be a back. That Lewis again you might be the kind of would be in the role that where you would be making the decision to do this from a football standpoint one. Would you be signing him with the intention of having him do immediately? Yeah I mean look. I think first and foremost. Down strictly football. You're looking at someone who hasn't played football four full seasons four. I mean the last time a quarterback came back after having significant time off that I was a part of. I was in Philadelphia in two thousand and nine when we signed Michael Vick. Him having two full seasons, and this was someone who was still to pull season, removed versus four full season, and it took Michael, time to get his body back in the football shape, and then assimilate himself into that system into that culture into the football team in Philadelphia, and then it was in two thousand and ten that he actually took off and had the best season of visit tire. Career cap is missed four full seasons, so I think. Anyone's expectations at this point. They tell you exactly what they are lying. They're kidding themselves because they have no idea how he wa- similar, assimilate himself into that particular system that particular team, where he is at physically and whether or not he is someone who then would be best suited for backup. Whether he's someone who still has started type ability. You're just guessing right now I think the first thing you would have to do first and foremost is bring him in and assess all of these types of things at says where he is at physically. Mentally where he is at from an expectation standpoint, there are so many unknown things, and here's the thing in this situation in particular, this is very unique ear, and the fact that we do have the covid nineteen situation. We have situations where team had teams have not been in the facility, so it's been very unique and odd in that way we have a dearth or rather we have. A lot of extra quarterbacks on the market right now we don't have the demand to of eat up all that those extra quarterbacks that have on the marketing Cam Newton. It's still sitting out there right now without a football team, so it's not a good situation in that regard for Colin Kaepernick. It's supply and demand, but I think this is a situation that you have to really go very slowly very methodically with, and that's why I think. Look at this point in time I. Just don't want the situation to be one where team tries to hijack the situation and make something that's opportunistic for him because remember remember four years ago. For lack of better phrase, he was considered bad for business and all of a sudden. Now he's not. Because it's opportunity for you. There's so many layers to this right now, but from a pure football standpoint I think this is something that has a lot of twists and turns to it as to whether or not he's good for certain teams. Yeah, no question about we'll continue to talk about this and we'll watch it because he is obviously someone who has come to represent something far larger than football. We move forward here another big story. NFL coaches have been making their returns to team facilities as the League has sent out guidelines outlining the procedures for the full reopening of practice facilities, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh yesterday, perhaps speaking for everyone said these guidelines are a lot. Lot Easier said than done. This is what he told. Baltimore's one zero five seven. The Fan I've seen all the memos on that and to be quite honest with you. It's impossible what they're asking us to do. Humanly impossible, so we're going to do everything we can do. We're GONNA space. We're going to have masks, but you know it's a communication sport. We have to be able to communicate with each other in person. We have to practice and so Dan Graziano I. will again with you as an insider? What are you hearing about? The concerns that NFL players and coaches have about some of the restrictions that are being placed on their ability to come back and work. I think everybody believes it's going to be difficult to to configure their facilities according to the recommendations that were sent out earlier this week. I think it's important for people to understand that the memo the NFL send our out early this week to establish standards for what facilities would have to look like if and when players are able to return was not considered by the NFL PA to be finalized document. The players union was surprised that document went out and they feel like there are. are still some questions to be answered so I think that Jon Harbaugh's concerns such as they are probably being shared to a certain extent by other coaches like. Let's just take the locker rooms, right? You're supposed to have six feet between each locker and training camp. Teams usually add extra lockers to their locker room because they have so many more people there so obviously. You're going to need to find solutions in terms of how you structure your weight room workouts. ETC But I think everybody. Views it as the other option is to not play, and at this point I think the NFL's situation. Where five six weeks till training camps would start. They still have the opportunity to to figure out what's right and wrong about these recommendations to look at what other leagues are able to do. But I think in terms of John Harb I think he's going to have to accept and all coaches are that a lot of things are going to have to be different, and they're going to have to work around some very unusual restrictions if they want to get back and play at all in two thousand twenty. Yes, and obviously playing the objective here the objective is not just to be able to come back and meet in person again. The objective is ultimately to play, and from the beginning of this pandemic I've been saying here I'm going to be optimistic because that costs the. The same as being pessimistic, so why not, but I'm also not going to be unrealistic, I'm not GonNa lie to my Audience Jeff Saturday. You played football for a long time and in the game of football you breathe on each other. You sweat on each other. You bleed on each other, so at some point we're going to have to come to terms with the fact that there's there's not. There's no room for social distancing in football, and that's either gonNA. Wind up being okay or it isn't right. I mean that just strikes me as the way that we look at it. You're one hundred percent right and what harbaugh said is a hundred percent right? There is no way from a meeting perspective. You can do all the things. But, let's never forget. Coaches are scheduled freaks right I mean they want everything dialed out in long before their teams get there, or they wanNA walk through every every possibility of what could come up to distract the determine the best for the betterment of their football team. What hardball saying is listen? We have all these these memos. Being passed out can realistically get this done and to his point from an offensive line perspective, we have to stream to each other constantly are facemask. Having discussed in the huddle. All of those things so does it gains today. Put things over our face masks to block those things up. There are so many unknowns and we're that puts horrible is our in is a very upper position because coaches don't want anything left. No stone left unturned, and so I think it's remarkable that he's actually saying these things because I can guarantee you. All coaches are feeling the same pressure. They don't understand how the accomplish I mean he's talking about shower time lifting weights different things that I don't think normal fan would think about. It's not just when you're on the practice units when you come back in how much time you spend together. How many guys are going to be around allowed in a room and a weight room? Though I love the discussion started, but I'm on the same page as you I think. The testing is going to be the most important understanding it makes you guys are testing data, but what that is, there's going to be an amount of risk in is undertaken by these football players, and I'll take it a step further from an offense of lamb perspective I've read articles about the five. Matters out. BOVID affects different people, so that's an offense offense defense of linemen differently because of our sizes as opposed to skill guys outside. There are a number of questions that has guys go an are going to have to get. It's not just coaching. Coaching question, it's a flare question that all these guys are going to have to come to grips with. Is it worth the risk to go do this so and light out on the same as you I'm up domestic work guys out. There are so many conversations that are still being. Had I think from our balls protected the frustration. Is You want the answers? Were not that close to there? We we still have many steps, and it may be last minute answers that everybody has to deal with simultaneously, and everybody has to adapt to, because that's the world that we live in at this moment if What do think Lewis? Look I think in the end of the day. There's never going to be a perfect way to resume playing outside without there. Being a vaccine readily available for everyone there just isn't. There's going to be some risk involved. No matter how much you try to social distance, no matter how much you try to do from a virtual perspective as far as meeting time and keeping people apart and limiting the amount of people that are all get together and one in one place I mean there's there's going to be risk because at some point in time, football is one of those. Those Games where people in close proximity to one another and players and coaches at like an owners and everyone in the league. Office is going to have to come to grips with comes to grips with the fact that there is going to be some risk involved. Here look I. Understand what coach Harbaugh is saying as far as the logistics of it all it's how can you get ninety players in the typical NFL facility in keep them properly spaced out to where you are minimizing the risk without severely compromising how you were able to really conduct business in a professional way. It's hard to marry. The two and I know that there are facilities operation managers right now. That are pulling their hair out. There are people who are involved in the administrative part of this as far as helping coaches plan out of training camp that are pulling their hair out going just like John Harbaugh. How can we possibly do this well? The only other option is to not play and we don't want to go down that road, so you're going to have to figure it out and you're going to have to assume some risk otherwise. We're not going to have football, which is something that nobody wants correct exactly I respect the heck out of the fact that trying as hard as they. They possibly can, and I hope more than as much as absolutely anyone. They can figure out a way to do it, but during a pandemic I think there's one thing we've learned. There were always a lot more questions than there are answers all right. We will just get started here on. Get up a lot more to do coming up. If you're expecting big things from Brady and brees this year, Juan Hall of fame quarterback says think again, dealer who that is, and why, in a moment and then Patrick mahomes scene is the best in the NFL. What is the one ingredient that is so vital to his success will answer that question and more as we get up with you on ESPN. GEICO gets you access to licensed agents twenty four seven, which means that Geico is always therefore you. If only everyone was always there for you, like your mom when you fill out really really important paperwork on the first day of a new job. Check birthday social security thing. Hey, what aid my social security number mom mom? Okay let's. Zero zero one seven out Jenin I hashtag. Always there for you with savings and twenty four seven access to licensed agents, Cliff Barn companies, the family and employee owned maker of cliff bars, cliff, kid and Luna Bars, and here's something I love about them. Since they started almost thirty years ago, they've always put people and communities I now they've committed to help. Feed the fight with get this and initial donation of more than seven million cliff, Luna and cliff kid bars to food banks, first responders and healthcare workers fighting this pandemic boom community. It's a beautiful thing. Get up is brought to you by creamy snickers smooth when you're hungry and buy. Pizza Hut from our huts, and yours order today for contactless delivery carry out or curbside pickup. Well, the wait is finally over. We have moving video of Tom. Brady and a buccaneers uniform. The local news in Tampa sent a chopper up to shoot aerial footage of Tom Brady working out with his teammates at is right now just ninety three days until we see him. Take the field with the bucks for week. One of the NFL season our NFL nation bucks reporter is Gentle Lane so Jenner. Up Right, now of the new combination of Tom Brady and Bruce Arians won't be the big difference for Brady as he goes from what he has been doing all these years to this new offense. Greenie this isn't a knock on Bill Belichick. Obviously, he's one of the best, if not the best to do it but bruce. Arians has some very unique skills when it comes to how he works with people. We've already talked so much about the XS and os combination of areas and Brady, but we really haven't talked about the personal connection that they're about to have and right now they've only been able to do. Do that through zoom through phone calls text messages, but when these two get together, which is going to be in about six weeks when training camp starts I think you're really gonNA. See Their connection. Take off Bruce Arians doesn't just pride himself on having a personal connection with his quarterback. He used himself as a pseudo psychologists. That's what he gets from all. His years spent bartending in which he analyzed people constantly. Buttons to push really listening to them poor their hearts out of over there days worth of problems and things like that he views that use himself as a pseudo psychologist and understands that that's very much what he's going to be doing with his quarterback. He'll tell you. He wants to be tethered with his quarterback at notches the hip, but at the heart I love. Love the story by the way for those who are not had a chance to read it. There is no better training for understanding people's psychology. Then by tending bar, so I liked the idea of it very much. Meanwhile Arians is famous for his no risk it, no biscuit approach. Do you expect that to be the offensive philosophy with a forty three year old quarterback? I do and so many people have said we don't think that he has got the arm strength that used to have, but I talked to Tim Couch about this, and he was a guy who Arians coached when they were with the browns couch, said that areas was able to get his best football out of him, and he said you know in college, and early on in my career I wasn't throwing the deep ball, but areas didn't let that stop him from calling. Some of those homerun plays those deep pass plays. because. He believes in taking those shots. Even if it's third into your quarterback, gets that one on one match up on the outside. You better take that chance. His philosophy is you know never waste an opportunity to crush the. Of An opposing defense for a quarterback like Tom Brady that has done so much throughout his career to have that kind of attitude and really have no training wheels. No limitations on you. That's very very invigorating. I'd also say this and I talked to Tim. Couch about it I talked to Tony Bruschi about it. They really think that what we saw from Brady and recent years in new, England was more a function of working with all those slot receivers as opposed to guys like Randy Moss, who we had earlier in his career, and he's going to get that with Mike, Evans and Chris Godwin Oh, and of course rob Gronkowski or it'd be very interesting to watch ten. Thank you very much. Next Carmelo Anthony said he is quote up in the air about playing in a bubble. What a League do up! A lot of players feel that way to that question next. On ESPN. The great thing about facts they're proven. Like the fact that crude oil contains impurities with that base oil made from natural gas, ninety nine point, five percent free of impurities. Pennzoil. Is the person motor oil made from natural gas, not crude oil. It gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is in the pennzoil. Based on sequence for a test using sap e five W. Thirty. It is Sunday night on ESPN and thirty for thirty long gone summer, mcgwire and Sosa and PD scandals that followed Sunday night nine eastern on ESPN and the ESPN APP. And as we reach the top of the hour here, nine o'clock in the morning in the east, I'm Greenberg in Bristol Connecticut this. Get up on ESPN. We have another half over ninety minutes of our program. And then I will begin at ten thirty eastern time for a full two hours with them, and we are busy this morning, and we have the news covered for you, not one not two, but. But three different ways there they are jeff passing Dan Graciano Zach Lowe are ready to go and low I'm starting with you here. We Cup as many as forty to fifty NBA. Players have recently expressed concerns about restarting the season in the Orlando bubble, though no one has formally asked out of the twenty two team restart Carmelo Anthony says he's still not one hundred percent. Sure he's going to play. As far as Actually play in and going back down to Atlanta. We I'm still up in the air a little bit because. You know we we don't have all the details. We don't know a lot of information. So until we have that it's Kinda hard to just could commit to it one hundred percent. Mellow, says he needs more information. What can you tell us about the NBA's plans for the event that perhaps breakout were to take place or large number of players on one team where to has positive. Well first of all I think the information is gonNA. Come soon, maybe as early as today. Second of all you know, that's the sixty four thousand dollar question what happens if six of the nine best players on the bucks get this during the conference finals I'm not sure those guidelines that come out are going to have an answer that question because all you have to do is look at the calendar right now. Game Seven of the NBA Finals, the scheduled for October twelfth next season is going to begin sometime in early December. That's. That's a very short off season as it as it stands and to delay series, which is probably what you're asking delays series. There isn't a week or ten days in their of wiggle room unless they're willing to push back next season even further to delay Syria, so I'm not sure what those guidelines are going to say, the answer that question it might be. There is no answer right now. Well, that's fascinating. Because I said earlier this morning and the program independent, there were always more questions than answers and we all accept that. But as we get closer and closer to this happening I have to believe the players are not going to be comfortable with well. We don't really have an answer to that question yet. Right I mean someone has to make some decisions. Even if they are subject to change in the event of circumstances beyond their control, they have to have some sort of plan in place for that right otherwise the players. I can't imagine a player being comfortable without having a firm plan. What they're going to have plans in place for everything I mean we're GonNa? We can talk about what they're gonNA do with Disney staff and But they're also going to get down there and think about Oh my gosh. We didn't realize that that parameter, but you know the scary answer to your question. The depressing answer to your question is if those guidelines don't have anything for the question of what happens if six players on the same team get it at the same time. The answer to that question might be you stop. Stop? You just stopped the whole thing and there is no time to pick it up and that's a very depressing answer, but again I'm not saying that's what the answer is going to be. But if there is no provided answer, you sort of read into it and think maybe that's actually it in the meantime. What can you tell us about? The Disney staff being quarantined untested? So. That's the other big question, right? You get the players. The staff you quarantine everybody everyone sits isolated into virus doesn't get in or out, but you have all these Disney staff that are going to be driving them serving them food cleaning their rooms. My understanding from teams and the. Teams have is going to be kind of tears of Disney staff. The staff that is going to be interacting with them most closely. Think about I'm guessing bus drivers stuff like that I think. Those people are going to be tested, maybe not daily, but frequently I. Don't know how many of them will actually be quarantined below that you have the staff that's not going to be interacting with them as much. My educated guess in what teams are guessing or hearing said those people will not be tested. Tested with anywhere near the same frequency, but when they are anywhere around the players and the coaches in the staff, they'll be wearing masks. They'll be distance so to compensate for. Maybe we don't have daily tests, or whatever for those people that's that's the sort of guesses that are out there fascinating, and if you really stop to think about look, we're all sports fans, and if all we care about is the games, and that's fine, but if you really do stop to sit back and think about. About the magnitude of the undertaking here for all of these sports and we'll just, we're talking about the NBA to bring all these people into a bubble and try and pull off an entire NBA postseason. It's remarkable and we just sit here. We hope that they can make it work. Thank you very much. We'll check in with you a little bit later. Let me get the baseball next. Thank. League baseball still has not made a counter to the unions eighty nine game proposal from earlier this week. Week this despite rob Manfred the commissioner, telling our call ravage the other day that he is quote, a hundred percent sure there will be baseball in twenty twenty and I am holding Jeff Passan's feet to the fire I have been telling Jeff from the beginning that it is his responsibility to make sure that we do have baseball so as we wrap up our week here. What should we and fans be expecting to happen between now and when you and I are back together again on Monday? Clearly, greening I'm doing an absolutely terrible job at this I apologized for that, but look at the expectation. Is that major? League baseball is going to send a counter offer back to or an offer back over to the Union today. The question is as has been the case with all the offers. What exactly is this going to entail? And how close is it going to get to fully paraded salaries? We have seen that that is the hill. Players are willing to die on. This is not a bluff. This is not a faint this is. Is them saying the most important thing to us is that we get paid the wage that we were promised in our contract, and if Major, League baseball is not willing. Go there over a particular number of games. There's not going to be an agreed upon deal, so mlb needs to move a little bit not just in the direction that the players won't with games played, but in the direction that they want with those fully paraded salaries, and if they get anywhere close to that I, think at that point, we're going to have an. Agreement otherwise forty eight game season fifty game season fifty five somewhere in that vicinity that rob Manfred is going to implement. Let me just make sure I understand this quickly. The concern the players have over anything. Short of pro rated salaries is that it starts to tiptoe towards a salary cap. Is that is that their primary concern is that that doesn't become something that turns into a salary cap down the road. Now, it's more this idea. Greenie that the players feel like they have been. Bullied? Taken advantage of. You look at certain things that have come into play the last few years for example, the flattening of the free agent market as someone put it to me the fact that when you hit thirty years old teams. Look at you like you have a walker. The Service time manipulation with with Kris Bryant. A perfect example of that one day short of being a free agent a year earlier, all of these things have compounded on themselves in the minds of players and what they're saying right now is. We're not going to take it. It is a very D, Snyder moment for them, and they are standing on principle here, saying that this is it this? This is our stand because we have a collective bargaining agreement coming up at the end of two thousand and twenty one that we need to negotiate and we don't want to give the owners the idea that they're going to continue to be able to push us around. Glad you made the twisted sister reference because I thought of it and I wasn't going to have the guts to say. Pass and thank you for your Monday, and and hopefully we'll be getting a little closer to this by then. Let me get to the NFL now. Where the League yesterday pledged to donate two hundred fifty million dollars over a ten year period to increase its social justice footprint, the pledge expands the initial deals that owners struck with the players coalition, luckily would have surpassed one hundred million dollars during its term meanwhile yesterday, the owner of the. The Tennessee Titans Amy Adams strunk released a statement saying quote I support our players, using peaceful protests and their platforms to advance us as a nation, I would encourage those who haven't thought about these issues before to understand the pain, anger and frustration of the black community black lives matter. We should all agree on that, so Graziano, why should we believe that things will be different this time with the owners as opposed to last time. I think the central message is coming from the Commissioner's Office. As of last Friday when Roger Goodell released that video in response to the players video day earlier. I think because of that. There's a sense that this is the position. The League is going to take on this and that the owners are probably going to have to get in line behind what the Commissioner is saying now. That's not to say you won't have stragglers. It's not to say you won't have an owner here or there. WHO SPEAKS UP IN A way? That doesn't reflect the commissioners point of view and the point of view of the majority of owners. Owners when it comes to something like say kneeling in protest while the national anthem plays that became a huge issue with NFL owners three and four years ago, but going forward this time and talking to a lot of people in those circles over the past week. It sounds like it's not going to be dealt with the same way. It sounds like it's not going to bring the owners. The same kind of angst about bottom line concerns right I. Mean TV ratings. If they went down as a result of this three years ago, which some people will tell you they did. Some people will tell you. They didn't even if. If that were the case for instance, the NFL expects it if it plays in September. It's ratings are going to be through the roof because people are going to be so starved for the product, so it just break it down to those cold bottom line terms, those concerns might not be as significant this time, but the bigger point is the shift as we discussed earlier this week. In what the sort of mainstream position is on this shifting you saw in drew brees point of view a forty eight hour span last week I. Think the people who own these football teams recognized that where we are as a country, right. Right now where the NFL has come out on this where NFL players have come out on this, it's important to be on the right side of it and I think that's where you're going to see more statements like what you saw from Amy Adams strunk well. That's interesting to me. Because I did see one from cal McNair, who was the owner of the Texans? Someone sent that to me. We saw shot, Khan talk briefly last week, and now this from Tennessee. So that would be my final question here. Should we be expecting to hear these kinds of statements coming forth directly from other NFL owners in the coming days. Coming days and weeks I mean to the extent that they make themselves available off seasons to the extent that they that they make themselves visible in off seasons I think there are people who feel that they have to speak out. I think there are, there are owners who were trying to figure out what their statement should say, specifically the wording of etc before they put it out, but yes I. DO think that over the coming days and weeks you will hear from more specific team owners in. In terms of not just teams releasing statement, but the owners actually putting their names to it not well done Dan. Thank you very much around the world of sports. We go here at a very busy juncture on this Friday. Meanwhile tomorrow night on ESPN UFC fight night. Live from Las Vegas featuring number. One ranked flyweight Jessica I taking on Cynthia cal in the main event, the prelims start tomorrow six eastern with the main card starting at nine on ESPN ESPN deport this and on the ESPN APP. Coming up if you were a fantasy football player, you gotta think long and hard about taking Baker. Mayfield high this year and I will explain exactly why coming up next, but first our buddy Hembo has won for Graziano I love it when these to go head to head, which NFL teams Skill Position Group scored the most touchdowns from scrimmage last season. That's a question and the answer is next. You're watching. Get up. On ESPN. Apart these sharing more so at Geiko, we'd like to say thanks. Thanks for sharing your savage dance moves. Thanks for sharing your diy haircut fails. Thanks for sharing your inner lip sync star. Now it's our turn to share with the GEICO giveback. The fifteen percent credit on car and motorcycle policies for current and new customers, because we're committed for the long haul, the fifteen percent credit last year, full policy term visit GEICO DOT com slash, give back for more INFO and eligibility. We're back on. Get up and sneaky Hembo has won for Graziano and here we go Dan which NFL teams skill. Position Group scored the most touchdowns from scrimmage last year. Some texting with humble on the break because I said this seems obvious, and he said skill position is running back receiver in tight end as I thought quarterbacks, not skill position anymore so I was gonna say the Ravens that seemed obvious, but since we can't count Lamar Jackson's rushing touchdowns. He's obviously not skill position player I'm GonNa Guess Forty Nine. Well. Guess what? The answer is still the Ravens by one over the forty niners. That's how close Graziano was. The Ravens had fifty one. The forty niners had fifty. Tampa and Dallas came next. Oh, the pain etched on the face of Dan Grazziano, bringing great pleasure to our buddy Hembo okay. This is the reason we were talking about that. Because bleacher report released an article that we liked it ranked every quarterbacks, supporting cast of skill position plays an inch come as no surprise that Patrick Mahomes came in at number, one retiree killed Savvas Kelsey and now rookie running back Clyde Edwards allaire leading the way as for the rest of the top five Baker. Mayfield and the browns offense came in at number two. Brees the saints at Three. Brady and the Bucks Howard, four and Dak, and the cowboys round out the list, and I'm just going to throw this out there to begin. Here is my thesis Louis Riddick. You tell me what you think of it. If you put Patrick Mahomes on a team that had the browns weapons we would all be saying Cleveland has the best weapons they've got. Oh, be Jay and Landry. They have to outstanding running backs in Chubb and Kareem Hunt and people forget that they have David and Joe the tight end, because he got hurt and miss basically all of last year, but he's a guy who looked like he was becoming a star a couple of years ago. The question is whether there are enough balls to go around for all those guys, but to me. Louis I would actually put the pure skill position group of Cleveland at number one your thoughts. Yeah, there's an argument for it and I. Think Really Okay. This is assuming obviously that O B J Jarvis Landry. You're healthy and David. And who was healthy, so all those things being equal, there's no question. There's a ton of talent right there. And I think the thing that could really put them at the top in the perfect world is the fact that they have to running backs that are absolute studs Chub and Kareem Hunt. Those two guys can make the difference. That's probably the best one two punch in the NFL as far as dual threat, runners and receivers so I think when you put all that together. See this is why. Why the Cleveland Browns or one of those teams that people get annoyed about off season, because on paper, they have so many things going for the problem was they couldn't protect the quarterback. The quarterback couldn't get into a rhythm and they had a terrible head coach. So that kind of really can take all those things on paper. Destroy them out the window, and that's why if you put and home. This football team I. I wasn't going to ask you as well. Who's coaching them again? Because if it's pretty kitchens, I mean come on, come on so but I think that that's what separates them the fact and then this year the they. They add guys like they add guys like Austin Hooper to the tight end group. I mean that's just ridiculous, so they have all kinds of weapons Galore, but we all know this coaches ruin players as much as players room, players and Kevin Stansky. That's why he'd right now. You WanNa. Talk about a spotlight being on a coach this year. It's going to be Kevin Spacey because we're having arguments. Just like this that we haven't even the Tampa. Bay buccaneers if they had a, they have right now bonafide number one runner that was a dual run past threat that Tom has been used to have those kind of running back and catch all. All the backfield Enron keys had during his entire career in New England. We'd be talking about them. Student right up there behind Kansas City as far as having the best perimeter skill wet skillset group in the NFL so we'll see what happens here, but this again. Though this is what annoys people about the conversations around the browns. Because we always put them up there, there touted their talented. They're talented and then what happens. That's why I've learned my lesson with the Browns, I'm GONNA. Take it easy on them right now. I'm just GONNA. Sit back in the weeds with these guys this year until chemists the fancy so just in case Caitlin Decides to make me look like an idiot. I'm going the opposite way I'm going to die on their hill I'm picking the browns in a big way this season, but jeff let me come to you. Because Lewis and I see the same thing differently, which is to say, he sees all of the pressure being on the coach I see on the quarterback. Because the first thing Lewis said was well, the coaching was bad. Will they address that? The offensive line was bad. Will they address that? There's nobody left now. which in my mind to address except the quarterback. Baker doesn't get it done this year with that group. Then the fingers going to be pointed at him so to me, Jeff the pressures on Baker Mayfield. What do you think? I think quarterbacks get too much positivity when they win negatively when they lose, and you fall right in it greedy, you just heard what was said I could not agree more when it comes to coaching coaching matters. Do they have that problem solve? We have no idea if you're a brown. Stay at your sure hope and so right because you understand, you've seen forehead coaches in three years for Mayfield, you've seen new OCC come in now, obvious with Van Pelt. You're hoping that thing works, but. But as you're looking at this, everything falls on his feet and frustration of the fans, but the reality is, it takes an entire entire organization to get behind that offense to chart it really around, so I couldn't agree with Louis more I think when you look at sheer talent. That's great I would also the chargers in that same nick, and you talk about to really good wide receivers. Good time in a running back. Who can do it all? You're talking about the same issues, right? Why couldn't protect Philip Rivers last year? You may have a rookie starting there this year. There's problems they're not even the top five. Here's another point. Three of the top five teams are five hundred or below bitter in the top up. So that shows you. Football is just not skill position. I loved that. We're writing articles about it. Let's make sure we don't forget. Offense Salon mattered right running game matters all these, because it makes socio guys better. We are true. Skilled positions understand that put us in that same argument. We can have a full argument about it but I. You know he's he's always going to take the flak. Until this team turned around by the way the chargers. I believe great. Can I here real quick? Yeah, go ahead. Let me, just say this. Here's here's. Here's the real deal about the Kansas City chiefs Clyde Edwards Allaire may make this football team illegal. They may have the outlaw the Kansas City chiefs if this young man lives up to the potential that he has look I'm telling you this I watches film I. Know Some people are going to be like what you're out of your mind. When I watched this film, I saw a guy from a body type perspective and the way he could move. Who looked like? Barry Sanders to me in some respects. Okay I know. That's huge, but I'm telling you. What in the context of this offense with that quarterback in that coach and those skill people? They could be illegal this you. Know shot stopping this football. And I'll say. Case closed. No one does better facial reactions then Dan. Dan Jumping final thought. Sanders you got to. Look I'm first of all I'm glad I'm not on. Lewis is DAD's. Kitchens that would that would be an unfortunate place to be when you talk about slamming. A guy already got fired. That's that's Kinda rough. Look Greener. You listed all those browns skill position, guys. You didn't even mention signed Austin. Hooper, the tight end from Atlanta that had a great year last year. They are absolutely loaded I. Know from talking to people in that organization that they felt if they addressed the offensive line, and of course as Lewis mentioned address the coaching issue that they could be a lot better and of course. Course. They signed Jack Jack Conklin and free agency. They draft Jed Rick Wills in the first round. They think they have the offense of wine figured out, and they believed they are going to be scary. It's a fun conversation I'll leave it. They will come back with much more as we go more football on the way as well Lamar Jackson the ravens are preparing for the season. Is Coach speaking up about a concern? All teams happen. It's a big one. We'll get into it right after this. Get up on ESPN.

EP. 429 - We Messed Up Our Diet

"I'm. Here in South Lake Tahoe and. One of the first things I had to do is Get some icon meals and freezer along with some Piemontese and a big old box of. Steak and more stake in more steak just showed up. With what I'm doing right now I just told him. Don't send me any stakes to have more than like ten grams of fat. So there's sending me all their Lena stuff. And it's working out really great especially with the Diet of doing right now cockroach leveraging thing that I'm experimenting lists and and try and it's working out. Great. And as we always tell you guys, we're not sure if you believe it or not. But stakes are tender tenders. Hell. Above that stake is something that everyone should try to experience. It's some sort of. Maybe a cross between A. Flat Iron Steak and. And like a tip or a flat iron and A. filet mignon something that just amazing one hundred grams of protein. Think. It's like maybe sixteen grams of total fat. This if the whole thing. Pound or something like that. MEMORIZING AMAZING STAKES GUYS GONNA try them out. Yeah. Sorry. Go ahead and Seema it is. So if you'd like trying to stay leaner get later because I used to not being I could eat red meat and. Diet but it it it makes the process so easy. Yeah, and then when you say Any of the the cuts that have grams of fat or less I would imagine that they can still send you a bunch of different cuts because all of them are super lean, and then it's funny when you say like you know the vet is like a mix between a flat iron and you know try tip that's actually a really good a comparison there. But I I walked into a butcher shop in Haiti has half flat. Irons. Like no, we don't. We don't have any of those like I'm looking for a real lean cut in the guy looked at me weird and he's like lean like know that those are not lean. Why sorry I thought you guys might be somewhat close to Piemontese beef and he just he kinda got offended I'm like Oh shit I'm GONNA go ahead and get out of here. Just forget all this older stuff from Piedmontese because this is. Not where I should be right now. When I was my bodybuilding show I. It a little bit of stake here in there. Honey told me I could steak wants today. Fish, chicken steak kinda rotate them around. And I thought I just I. Don't know I never even really looked into it. I. Thought that stake I thought some of the stakes. We're kind of lean because they were cut a dry and they were hard to eat. So I thought a few of them were. Fairly lean than I looked at the stats and I was like Oh man, that's like double what I'm supposed to be getting on my kit. For the only thing you can do get like. Those I around steaks with those things are terrible. Yeah. That's not even really stay. Then I got a New York strips can be pretty lenient at the shop that. Off so that was kind of one of them, but you can't even really do a body believed and eat those. Purloin sometimes kind of. A. Lot. And then so we're recording this on September eighteenth in today's National Cheeseburger Day Oh yeah Piedmont. Piedmontese Hamburger PATTIES, they're they're insane. I haven't had the sliders in the little while it's been like actually kind of a long time because I just got the the bigger patties and those things are just there in their phenomenal like they taste like they did some weird wizardry to like season those or do something. But apparently, they didn't all they do is just put a bunch of ground beef and make patio out of it and those things are do those are so good. I. Don't know if he has with those lately. I love, I love the Heather Hamburger Patties I've been eating some of the leaner hamburger us as well. The Ninety six I think it is ninety, six four. mean. That usually doesn't taste any good either you know I just when I just. A double. Take the stats every time I eat their food because I'm like. It just must be lion us. But I am getting leaner. So I think it's I think it's working out. Okay. There you for more information on Piedmontese beef this amazing incredible tasting lean ground beef. Sorry about signs in the back Please head over to Piemontese Dot? com? That's P. E. D. M. O. N. T. E. DOT COM at checkout enter Promo Code Power Project for twenty five percents off your order and if your order is ninety nine dollars or more eat free two day shipping. Even the cops are coming in chart still some of that that lean beef. Are. They worried about this podcast we're going to be released in too much great information I mean potentially yeah. They're trying to trying to suppress. Straight. Talk about anything. Good. Happens. You had pretty cool. Pretty cool. Thought for today's episode what she got. Yeah. We've done a lot of dumb shit in our day. As far as like lifting and nutrition and just things that we thought we had to do either get bigger to cut or to get strong thought we can talk about some of that stuff because some of y'all might still be actually doing some of these things and I. Also WanNA mention. Some things that I may mention there's maybe a time in place for it, but I still don't think it's absolutely necessary i. think since we were just talking about meet the kind of falls in line because I used to like when I was twenty, twenty, one, twenty, two. you my late teenage years. I really stated roadway from red meat. Number one because a lot of people told me too much. Red Meat is super healthy for you. But also as a bodybuilder I was told that you gotta eat lean meats 'cause all at that and that red meat's detrimental and you won't be able to get big without getting super fat. I, really stayed away from red meat. We hear that a lot more in the black community whereas that or am I making sense of art so back, then it what it was like in the bodybuilding fitness community. But oddly now that you mentioned in Andrews mentioned it to You do hear a lot of that within like a lot like rappers like gnaws. Just had Andrew was playing a record in the gym at odds nozzles talking about staying away red meat and a lot of rappers going begin and there is still this thing within within some of the culture that you know red meat, S-. Bad for you because I mean if you look at heart disease within the black community, it's it's pretty high right and red meat it within pop culture right in pop culture nutrition there's a highly between red meat in heart disease in. A high cholesterol so that bay is still spinning around, but it is getting even bigger within the black community right now yet the at a like a little graph. This guy was talking about dementia and Alzheimer's which which they now consider tab three diabetes and they showed the difference. Between Nigerians that were. That lived in an American environment lived in America. For for most their life versus. Nigerians that lived in Nigeria and they showed there. was such a massive difference. In such a massive difference in their overall health and so I think that sometimes we think others a genetic component to it, and there is always a genetic component to everything that is a factor but environmental is huge and so I think in America sometimes when we try to say that you know fat is bad or we try to sit at meat is bad think we just unfortunately just have bad information. You know making eating meat very often when you don't have control over other aspects of your nutrition maybe that's not a good idea. Maybe maybe four, the layperson that Likes to enjoy a wide variety of foods may be does make more sense for them to eat some chicken breasts here in there because. They consume a diet that is a large percentage of maybe maybe normally fairly large percentage of Fat and carbohydrates, and so you can kind of see how people could kinda get You know swerved a certain way guys like C. Fletcher who have went Vegan, and then of course when people go Vegan, they share their. Experience out with other people other people get excited like, Oh, I'm going to give that a try which I think. It's good to try different things but I just don't. I don't I personally. I've never tried. A vegetarian or Vegan Diet. So I I can't. Really. Say on how it would work for me but it's something. I. Don't think I would ever even bothered try. because I am huge believer in protein and it just seems like an odd way to get protein to try to get protein via vegetables when they don't really have a lot of protein in them. Yeah and. To not get too far off track. But yeah, the NAZA album is called the King's disease because kings diseases I was like over consumption of literally everything but it was like specifically about gout and we had a stick man from dead Prez on and he said he got gout from eating too much meat and drinking and stuff. So that's why he went Vegan and I mean for majority of my you know whatever since like a teenager to you know an adult nozzles like my favorite rapper but here in him kind of give a little bit of nutrition advice on on his album like holly like no, like this stop this go to garage about dope shit like. It was funny. His telling people like. What watch here uric acid levels get you some lemongrass in. Talking about like I love like he's he's like I said he's been my favorite rapper of all time but it was just funny listening to that just like like maybe shouldn't be spitting nutrition advice right now. I don't you might be the nutrition might be the hardest thing to prove. The other you know could you could use show that meet. Causes Gal, could you show pretty good link? You pro- you probably you probably can figure out many ways to least fool people into thinking that it does and then I would say the reverse is true to you could probably show. Hey, look. We didn't find much evidence because they do that all the time with like eggs and cholesterol dietary cholesterol. And I think that's one of the issues that were running that we run into in the topic for today of of. You know talking about these different things that we've tried nutrition or these different things that we try to end with exercise. I think we get. We try something and. It makes us feel good as Joel Green pointed out our podcast. Almost. Anything switched to will make you feel good for a few weeks. So that's something to think about is that. It doesn't matter what you switch to if you switch to something for about three or four weeks. As long as it's not a completely unhealthy practice, you'll probably feel pretty damn good for a little while that's why you hear Molson it's I. Switched over to try and this, and now I feel great. It's also a minor change. It's not like he went from not doing Jujitsu to doing you. It's not like he went from. Never running and then all of a sudden trying to run marathons. Right it's usually pretty gradual people are like I chop vegetables and I feel great. No are chopped out meat and I feel great it's like okay. Well, let's see. How long can that last for and let's see how you feel down road. You know real. Real quick going back to what Andrews mentioning about Gout Nas moved me right. But we also know like within like rappers like to drink a lot at Klein in India right and he got flare ups a lot. He's like I think it's the meat. I think it's the meat unlike Yo Dude, you drink a lot right? He's like. It's hard to cut out I have business meetings in business meetings you need to like you know it it's you got to drink with your partners like. Well, let's let's try to actually cut that out instead of cutting out the me let's cut out the alcohol a few weeks later Wu's alcohol. Like Psalm wondering like with is this really the amount of nature eating? Are you still drinking a little bit too much right now because drinking's a hard thing to cut out, it's much easier for the a lot of people to cut out a bit of me. That's cut out. The alcohol allows to be socially. You know be social with people. Yeah and then just clear I don't know for if for sure if nozzle went Vegan or he cut me, he just that's just the title of his his album and I know stick man was the one that like he's writing a book and in that book, He has a chapter dedicated just to the king's disease which has gout in that's what they call it. When I say they, I mean, like that's what ancient times. That's what it was called So I don't know for sure I could look it up I know how to Make. Sure. Seattle I. Hope. I hope nausea go Vegan is too good of a wrapper for us to. Let. Them Go. Back. Or let them go away from me. I've been PESCA -tarian before. College. Yeah I did that in college for six months during my a big use. The. Beginning of my that lower half of my first season and. I felt kinda week after a while. But the thing is you see like like you mentioned mark after you switch to something you she'll come and good for feel Kinda bad. But then also I don't think I was doing I was doing Pesky -Tarian in kind of a stupid way ozzy and a lot of fish, a lot of rice in carbs and stuff, but probably was getting enough good. Batson I wasn't supplementing things that I was missing from like essentially eggs needed cetera was supplementing a lot because I was a college student. I didn't have the knowledge to look up the supplements thous- missing or the money to Bible supplements right. So maybe if I didn't a smarter way when it felt as bad but it was a, it was an interesting experience to say the least I, felt weak. Yeah, I think the the the the I would say from Trish standpoint. One of the one of the key ingredients from a nutritional standpoint aunt for most people is just figure out a way to not overeat and so. Whatever way that you can figure that out I say that that's probably a great diet. I don't care what diet is I don't care if you're begin or whatever 'cause most people just have an issue with overeating. So if you can figure out a way to have a a reasonable caloric intake on a daily basis and maybe through that reasonable caloric intake that you have maybe over a period of time. You know weeks and months go by here actually in the slate caloric deficit of some kind. Of Don't really ever gain weight or you're just flat out maintenance and you don't acquire, you don't gain any more body fat. I think ultimately, that's that's what we gotta try to steer people towards, and so I think you know, could you fill yourself up with vegetables in a given day and avoid? Overeating like yeah. Of course you can and then from there, can you get the nutrients that you need? And the answer again is, of course, you can because of the the, times that we're in. You can just order whatever supplement you want off Amazon it's at your house in a day and so. I think that we try to. Make nutrition so complicated. and. If you want to eat a couple of slices of bread every day. Because it fills your stomach up and you really love bread and you think it gives you good. Banerjee than fucking do you know as again it whatever can get you through the day whatever keeps you happy and excited and keeps you feel unhealthy and strong having energy anything. That's what you should try to lean into. Yeah. I'm curious to know Mark Year. Not Not. Believe spell like your your take on the Ketogenic Diet that you've done bodybuilding and you're currently like focusing more on protein leveraging and having some carbs and stuff because that's probably the the only diet that I, did where I just completely like like without a doubt totally messed up. It would be like nine PM at night and I'm like looking at my fitness pal like, oh, my Gosh I gotta get my fats up and so like I'd have like bulletproof coffee. I just beat cramping all night long because I would put a bunch of mcat oil because I needed to reach my the correct amount of fat because only I run off the fat now. So I have to have that. and. Keep in mind I. I wasn't overweight. It was something I wanted to try just just to see what would happen I kept hearing about this Kiddo denic diet and this was right before it became like a super big mainstream thing not that I was like up on it before anybody or anything like that. But I remember like it was not common nobody knew about it like as far as like family and friends like nobody understood like, what do you mean? You can eat bacon like that sounds weird but I did it horrifying? Like it was so bad like I was under eating. All I was eating was like you know butter and coffee an Bacon I did have a bunch of eggs. But now that you've done, I mean you've done all the diets before you were like on the war on carbs but just looking back now is there anything you would have you know maybe like to change about the book or some of the like the the thought process or ideology about Ketogenic Diet has it changed. There's still a lot more research probably needs to be done, but as far as I'm aware. When you talk about anti disease I, don't know if there's anything better now they haven't the Hammond like I don't know if they've compared it I don't know if they've compared it. All fairness I don't know if they've compared. Akito Genyk Diet to Being Clark deficit being a healthy person period, but it does appear that key. Own. Own Natural benefits. Beyond what protein does beyond what fat does and beyond with carbohydrates do now you can produce key tones if you're just clerk deficit as well, it's a natural process body. But maybe you're not producing as many. But I would say that, yeah, I'm still a huge fan of a ketogenic diet when it comes to. Alzheimer's so when it comes to Dementia when it comes to diabetes. It makes sense to me that diet that can reverse diabetes can reverse a lot of other diseases. Most of the experts will say that. diabetes and heart disease or the same thing primarily but usually some dysfunction with your insulin resistance. And so when you start to look into some of that, you're like, wow like. What the hell other diet does that, and again, could you be on a bodybuilding diet in a? Overcome law out of these things I. I would say that you probably can. But there's a lot of good research You know the the research that Ron had had done at the Kito pet sanctuary where they. had. Many many dogs I think they are two dogs which was two dogs too many for Ron Penna but they lost two dogs out of a I think that one, hundred, hundred, ten or something like that. Dogs this. Edo Pet sanctuary where they fed dogs ketogenic Diet had cancer. I I. Apologize I don't remember. The types of cancer that they had because it. You know the GITA Genyk diets not going to all of a sudden. You know ward off of cancer were not at that stage yet but still a huge fan of a ketogenic diet and If I was traveling if I was bouncing around from spot spot I wouldn't it wouldn't really be possible for me to utilize this. It wouldn't be possible for utilized protein leveraging as much because good locked trying to get low fat foods at a restaurant with meat. You know because they're gonNA dump much oil on mini can ask them not to do that stuff like that. But. it's just going to be. It's GonNa be really tough. So if I was traveling, I would probably be Cameron Akita key Diet Eating A. Hamburger patties blowout Stop Out Burger, eating omelets on the go and all that kind of stuff. Mark with me ask you this real quick. What is the case? So as far as the protein leveraging thing is going right now you obviously have high protein. Your fats are pretty low. Your carbs are pretty low right? Okay. Now with that happening, what is What? What is the goal with our you China, true drop are you trying to maintain like what a person wants to think about doing this? Is this a person that's dieting or is the person that's trying to maintain what they've got what's the intention? So I would say. Probably will happen with me is probably the conclusion that I'll probably come to I. Mean I'm kind of just experimenting for the moment. So basically, what I did was after reading a lot of Ted name stuff and having him on the podcast. And Understanding his principle that it's protein versus energy. So energy comes in the form of carbohydrates and fats. Protein just isn't a great energy source and so when you start to look at things that way. Then you can say, okay, well, I need X. amount of protein. Two hundred pounds so I'm going to eat at least two hundred grams of protein and this case Bingo one point five times above or even to if you wanted to but go one point, five times above in our at three hundred grams of protein per day. From there you can take. You can kind of split that in half and say, all right. Well, I don't know one hundred fifty. One hundred fifty grams of carbs or fat I can go either way or some combination thereof depending on. How much food you WANNA eat and depending on what you move. you might need a little bit more than that but What I'm finding is that for some of the people that have been doing this diet for Awhile Is that they'll usually go. About half their body weight in grams of fat half their body weight in grams of carbohydrates, and they usually go about one point, five times their body weight in grams of protein, and then they just tweak from there because you're not really necessarily right on the money. For anybody's might the lower fat so you might have to up your carbohydrates fats or whatever it might be. To make sure that you have energy and make sure the scales heading in the right direction and make sure the way you look in the mirror is heading in the right direction but. I think the conclusion that I'll come to that. This doesn't really necessarily a diet diet something that maybe not sure if I'll use it the rest of my life, but it's but it's a leverage. It's like a lever that you can pull to gain some leverage against hunger, and so I'll probably I probably will utilize it in some sense the rest of my life but not all my meals will probably always be like this. Those SP times where I'm sure I get bored of it and I'm just like I WANNA do Akito Diet but even if I go on a Keto Diet will probably be a couple times a day where I'm like while I'm just going to have a thing a protein a. Protein shake with fifty grams of protein in it to augment this meal to bring that protein up a little bit higher. So some things keep in mind with protein leveraging. It's not really just. An abundance of protein diet it's a high percentage of protein diet. So that means that in order for it to work properly, you can't eat a lot of other macronutrients. So in order for it to really work. Like if you if you're really really heavy, if you're obese NANNU eight straight protein or You multiple days on end That would be like a it's called a protein sparing modified fast where. You're kind of fasting. So you're not giving your body. Any real great energy. Source It would be nearly impossible to. Only eat. Protein. But you can get really low fat amounts we've talked before on the show though how? It's advantageous to cut your fats too low because. You can run into hormonal issues and things of that nature, and so you'd have to be you know. You have to be very you'd have to be very cautious with that but. It's still being amazing way to lose a lot of fat, but maybe your Dick wasn't work. Andrew Are you remembering something? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah actually I am Pay. To admit it. But Yeah when I was doing my cut man like I It's it's so funny. You know like just in the past year how far I've come in like knowledge of nutrition and stuff. But I remember asking and Seema K. fat doesn't make me fat why am I dropping my fat? So he's like well, you can't have carbs and fat I'm like Okay. When that case I want more carbs. So I'm going to get rid of all my fat next thing I know man things aren't working I'm tired I'm like no energy in the gym like insieme what's going on? He was like, well, where's your fan? I'm telling on probably late two, thousand, five grams of fat and he's just like Whoa do not. We need to get that up closer at that time like seventy. And man talk about like a tough lesson learn the just like what's going on It was bad. You know. But thankfully, you know that's one of the the big a big bumps in the road that lead to a good lesson, which is make sure. I get adequate fat because holy crap that that messes with your hormones big time. My. Name is the Dick. Safer. Me Home Addict Sabre. Quick Though Welcome I WANNA leave. To leave him out dry right now back in two thousand fifteen when I was cutting. Bodybuilding shows working without borough. Alberto. Nunez. We love that guy now he had my back down at thirty to forty. And for the last six, five months of my prep I had no sex drive. Like it was gone. was Go ahead no say. But that's like in a competitive setting, right? Like it was all or nothing. But that that's the thing though like this is this is why I thought that this episode be so great because nowadays right I'm. Maybe some I think nine pounds away from being stage lean and the I've had no indication of that happening my drive is there and it's it's Thursday but. The reason why it's bear is because my fats aren't super-low like I used to think that you had. You had to have super-low fats to be able to get lean and the side effect that for men is your beato tanks are. It doesn't. It doesn't WANNA work right. But no I don't out to buy it on Super Low fats to get lean and you can maintain your drive even when being super lean and cutting. It's great. Food. It's just so crazy like because now like I'm at a point where I can actually. Know like I woke up. Like Monday like at one seventy two, you know keep in mind like two weeks prior at the photo shoot I was one, sixty six. So the goal is to kind of be around seventy. An oddly enough somebody had asked on the other livestream we did with Mark Lobe liner. Somebody was like, Hey, how much is Andrew Way and let's such a random question but I was like one, seventy two but I know I'll be at one seventy by the end of the week. So here we are Friday. And sure enough. Yeah. At one, sixty, nine just it's it's crazy. How like once you do start to learn how you can manipulate your body with even just like the like a subtle change you know like what what change like wasn't tracking and I I kind of had a little bit more and so now I'm tracking and I'm having just a little bit less. Yeah the fat's though that's so crucial I. Hope Everybody listens to that. But that's one big thing that that like again when I started. Focusing on bodybuilding in my early twenties that that and even in my teens when I was reading bodybuilding com forms all bodybuilder guys like. Your first off, you should be eating for six day. You should be eating fairly low fat your carp should be appeared. Up here, and that's Kinda what I followed. But now, I don't believe that you need to follow that like a lot of those guidelines at all to get big or at all to get lead like. It, it's it's just They're I. Think they're much better more sustainable ways to do it because the way I was doing that bodybuilding. At markets kind of similar to what you're doing for the show for me that wouldn't be I can't do that for a long time. Bright some people can I I do know some people that like they prep all their meals, they eat really low fat Bab tupperware. That's just what they do. That's what they've decided to do for life. Bed. That's just not me and I just don't think it's necessary. Yet, for me, I don't really. I don't necessarily enjoy that like to you know. Go around with a bunch of food or have it prepped all the time so I just choose not to do it but it but if you can make it work and if it feels good for you, you know, I I made a tweet it to sound like I. Think. I hear people all the time saying. That's not sustainable or Vegan diets not stable or but it's like who's to say for some people for some people Certain practices are are reasonable for them to do like look at campaigns he runs like a half marathon at lunch. That's the guys lunch and imagine telling him. Hey, that's not sustainable i. think he's been doing it for twenty years. You know so I don't think it's great to To play too much judgment. Now, if you're giving somebody advice and you're trying to coach somebody that's different because you want them to be armed with as much stuff as possible so that they can make. Choices that lean into the things that they're interested in and lean into their lifestyle and that way you can say, well. Yeah. We tried a few weeks ago, but it didn't seem like the sustainable for you in our. You know good move onto this other thing and and see how you like that. But on the topic of A. The the fat in the kind of macaroni and stuff like that. So. Because my Protein is so high i. think that's kind of making up for. A lot of other macronutrients that maybe not consuming as much but I still feel like I'm consuming plenty of carbohydrates and plenty of fats When I share information, it's always a little difficult because. If I give people numbers, they're just rough guesses 'cause I don't ever tracking mainly I don't really write it down I might pay attention to it for few day is just to kind of dislike, can share information little bit more accurately. But in terms of carbohydrates like yesterday I just didn't eat any of them The the day before that I think I probably had. carbohydrates, couple times. So it probably had like there's two hundred grams so it can kind of be all over the map but if I don't lift I, usually don't eat carbs And that's not based off of any sort of real scientific thing or anything it's just. I just go by my output. You know if I if I felt like I had a lot gave a lot of energy for the day. And I did things that real physical like when we had mark low blind in her in we podcast with them and I trained with them. on that day I probably had two hundred grams of carbs or something like that. But. It really just depends if I don't, if I don't put out a lot of energy for the day. Then I I'll probably choose to be a little bit more. Kill ask I guess you'd say. You know what I really do like it. I thought in terms of what we're talking about here is like dimensioned right with the tupperware stuff for me. Personally that's not something I wanna do anymore and the funny thing is even when I was doing all that I wasn't enjoying it right so I think a good idea and I know that this might be a little bit difficult because if you're just starting this whole process, you don't know what you would really like. So you end up trying a lot of different things like mark. You did a bodybuilding guy you've done Kito, you've done carnivore. You've you've done all these diets because you've done all. These lights you've been able to come across. This is kind of how I WANNA eat. This is how I want my days to go if I go and I do this then I can. You can pull on these different levers whenever you want to use. You have all of these experiences I think now because I've been able to in the past I did mess with Carnival for a little bit right she just eating just like neat. No carbs for a little bit I did do some Kito I did do pure I F ym in the dumbest fashion where I was eating a lot of bad crappy foods and making the bit my Mac. Grows. Right. But now since I since I've been able to do those things, I can have different foods like if I do end up wanting to get some pizza on a certain day with with a friend or something I can do that. But it's not a common thing like the next few days I know what levers cool on terms of fasting in terms of high protein in terms of low fat so that I can. Move forward in the right way I have freedom in terms of eating in a healthy way because of the different dieting experiences. So navy to try these different things. In semen would you say that like kind of what I've noticed and I would like to know your opinion is Do you think all roads lead back to a body style diet for somebody that's really trying to really get in shape. Would you say that what do you mean? I mean that like there's a lot of different ways to get to the to the same destination, right? But ultimately, you're going to have to take that bodybuilding road. You know to get you there the fastest like if you're if you're trying to if you're trying to not take the back roads and take the freeway and and get there the quickest you're gonNA end up on a bodybuilding diet because even when I've seen, lane, Norton kind of lay out some of his foods or people that are. Inflexible dieting if you're Makarova's, they'll talk about the pop tarts. We'll talk about the frozen yogurt and we'll talk about you know popcorn and all these different things. But ultimately when it starts to get closer to show, you'll usually see a lot of those things removed and you'll see the protein being spiked way up a good amount of carbohydrates and pretty modest amount of fat and they might still. They might still have a treat here there, but it's going to be a lot less common is going to be pretty strict probably for twelve weeks yet. At the end road. I. Think. So but you know you mentioned that there car pretty high I think for some people that could be totally switched and I think it. Should be through a lot of people with their hormones and stuff like so you're directs I think the fats could be Kinda high and the cards could be pretty low but I think the big one of the big things that really changed things and made things easier for me and when we had coal Robinson on Robinson was his name, right? Yeah. When we had him on, you talked about all of these really really big people implemented some fasting. Sometimes, you know some tough water fast but implemented some fasting lost weight like this right I think that that? Habit is one of the X. factors that not only allows people that he works with the people you've worked with Mark Myself some of the people I've worked with I think bats that X. factor because it helps you not controlled by hunger right? So if you have some fantastic where you don't feel that you have to eat all the time and then you do use whatever you have, it's easier to in deficit which means it's just easier to drop pounds because if touch. If. I. Did a Diet where or might eating style was eating all day long Mike. My hunger levels my cravings with the way that I can eat because I can allot. It'd be really difficult for me to stay link it would be super difficult but because I have that habit and I don't feel like to eat all the time I can be pre big meals but staying lean or getting leaner is a difficult issue the one thing. I've noticed too for individuals that do shows. When I've had them implement some fasting their calories are so low and because they're able to like eat those calories within like an eight hour whatever window they still feel satisfied because they eight fifteen or sixteen hundred calories within a six hour window. So there's and they're used to not eating for the first part of the day. So they're not having all these crazy cravings that you typically have when you're super lean. Yeah imagine if you're just trying to solve solve issue of people being overweight and you thought about it. On its most The most logical level like if if you use like a little kids approach to it and said. All right. Well, I. You know I talked to ten people that are really heavy and these ten people said that they really enjoy eating. They loved heat. And they. They also have mentioned that they tried to eat better but they had a hard time and they ended up eating foods that aren't great for them. And then if you just said, okay, well. What's the number one thing that we need to? Figure out what we need to figure out ways for them to eat less and the way you're going to get them to eat less figure out how to control their hunger, how to control their cravings, and that's when you're going to see some massive changes and that's when you'll get people that come to you and they say, Hey, I tried what you said last week and I you know I lost like four or five pounds just in this one week you know then they gain momentum and they lose twenty pounds or so in a month and And they're kind of on their way but they. You. Know you can control your hunger in a lot of different ways you can occupy your mind you can. You can try to drink more water. You can go on walks, you can try to find hobbies. That you enjoy. You can eat a lot more protein like stuff yourself with protein In fact, I would say that if you're not hungry for more protein than you actually just not hungry. I think that's a great rule of thumb that. I would fucking and right that on your refrigerator. If you're fat, you know step down you're. Not, hungry for protein you're not actually hungry. It's just it's fake calling you know and it's okay to have those and so can act on those. But for the most part that's just gonNA, lead you to eat stuff that you can probably don't. You probably don't need fasting. It sounds counterintuitive but. Fasting, will not only help you eat less than a given day. It can help you eat less over time because you can recognize a hey, this is just a pulse. This is just a pulse in my brain. This is just my body telling me that I'm hungry but I'm not really that hungry I. Mean I eight just hours ago or eight. Last night at. Eight PM, I finished off a fourteen. New York Strip. So like how hungry am I really at eleven am the next morning? Yes you are hungry and. You probably need food at some point in the day, but you probably don't need to react to that first impulse that you have that I. I would say like when I've fast for longer periods of time by eighteen hours or so. That usually hits me about three times and there's there's studies show that you get hit by hunger regardless. Of whether you eat or not you hit by hunger several times a day. Whether you eat or not so that you could eat at eight am you're still going to be hungry at eleven thirty? Anyway. Because that's way too bodies tends to work out with. Our Circadian Rhythm and stuff like that. Yeah. It's funny. I'll up a prep everything to head to. Head to. Head to work and all as I'm getting ready to go I'm like dude I should probably dislike pause and eat something right now because I am so hungry because I haven't been fasting as long as I used to. Just trying something different trying to get more protein in my system. And I'm like, no like I'll just have everything to go. I'm just going to drive to work like no big deal and by Tom I get there. I forgot that I was hungry like it's so weird and it happened like two three times this week and I'm just like that's it's wild. You know like I was four sure like. I'm going to eat lunch early and I might have to go grab some some more food or something but like it's it's definitely happening today and I completely forget it's so weird but it yeah exactly. Like occupy your mind author on Youtube video or something as I'm driving in. The the hunger pains away. But when it comes to fasting I've definitely made the mistake of fasting for a little bit too long and. In seem I want you to help clarify what I was doing but during my cut last year. I was like so pumped. I'm like, Dude. I fast for like twenty hours today like I just got stuck you know podcasting photo shooting doing all kinds of stuff and I'm like do Yambol. So my calories are super-low today like I did good right and then insieme you were like well. Sort of because what's going to happen in a couple of weeks when we really start to dig like you're not gonNA have anywhere to go can you explain what you were? Let you just explain what you were talking about. Okay. So a really cool thing that you just mentioned there Andrew was the. You were able to get your I. Guess Cravings Insert in in control. You want what? Twenty hours with a lot of people can't think about going twenty hours about eating food. You went twenty hours about eating and at the end of the year like dude I don't even eat that much. This is Great right? Now you're. Using. Your very stereotypical white skater do. So so You did that which I saw a lot of people were like, whoa that's crazy. I can't even imagine doing that but then. We're trying to cut for a long period of time. Now, this is where fast and can be detrimental. In a bulky on cutting sense. But let's talk cutting when you get into the habit of getting empire day and you're not eating a lot you edit eating such a small amount of calories. It could be a thousand calories you're like, wow, on stuck with a thousand calories. Metabolism starts to then slow down because you're only eating a thousand calories a day. So as you're trying to cut and let's say you stall right and you're not losing any more weight. What direction are you gonNa go with only one thousand calories that you've been eating gotta somehow do more work in terms of the gym when you have to eat. Less. That's why like I think I had like fifteen or sixteen hundred, which is pretty low but I wanted you to hit that. So we could be could milk VAT as long as possible. When you hit a stall, maybe we can drop again or maybe we can do a small break in increase your couch for a little bit but we'd have room. To eat less rather than going like when people try crash diets eat like five hundred calories a day they dropped for a while and then like, oh my gosh, why am I not losing any more weight and they can't so they have to lane talks about it. That's a reverse out of it a little bit and then moved back bounced. That's why you want your calories low the not too low you WanNa make sure when you fast that you eat enough within that fasting period sometimes is a pretty difficult thing to do. I think the assumption you guys were mentioned in a little earlier is like. You. Know you WanNa have these tools you want to have these tricks to be able to utilize, and so the more knowledge you have the easier it's going to be to apply. I think when you're when you're new at stuff. You really kind of need to follow the protocol you know as as insieme is you know has laid out for Andrew It's good to ask questions and it's good to say, Hey, like I'm doing this today 'cause today descended up being different. So what do you think of that? You know and to get feedback from your coach? But for the most part, you really want to try to follow coach or someone laid out because you currently just don't have the knowledge to shift or move. So the the thing that you think is a good idea. Just. Might not be that good of an idea. Kind of reminds me of like. When you're a kid if you learn how to play the piano or something like you, you learn how to play like chopsticks. You don't really know how to venture out and do much else in anytime. You try anything else. It just doesn't sound very good sounds very attitude and it's just not not working and so same thing here is like your you want to. Expand your knowledge vertically. You know if you're on Akito Diet or if you're on the vertical diet or if you're on. A carnivore, Diet. Lean into that and and learn what that feels like try to learn as much as you can about it the more that you learn even within that system, the more you're going to be able to explore outward and expand outwardly, you'd be able to go off in whatever direction you really want to i. mean if you wanted to eat a thousand cards today like Jay Cutler, you can do that. But you better have Jay Cutler type experience Jay Cutler type coaches to be able to figure that one out to be able to eat that kind of food. Not Thing I want to touch upon is that When it comes to bodybuilding something they really keep in mind as bodybuilders eat a lot. They really do eat a lot and when you talk about bodybuilding. The especially people that are good at it the foods that they use to get big are the same foods that they used to get smaller though the same foods that they use to get in shape. And this is my problem with flexible dieting and this is my problem with. Just what kids shared out there yes. I understand the principle of I, totally get it and I totally agree one hundred percent that you can eat some different foods You can have a wide variety of foods. You can eat a couple of slices of pizza every day. if you wanted to. If you wanted to really figured out think. Trying to get skinnier basically, we're trying to lose body fat off of foods that have pretty much made our entire society fat and now the entire world fat. it just isn't a great way to go about doing it. It's. It's probably dangling something in front of you that. You shouldn't be. Tempting yourself with as much so that that's one of the things where I'm like. Like. I've been a heavier person. I, was never liked the fat guy type thing I was Kinda fat for powerlifting but most of my family's fat and I'm like, Nah like just. Not. What I'm seeing like what I see and I can't I can't give I can't tell you know my relatives. Yeah. You could have a slice of pizza every day that would work out. Just fine. Because they're also the other thing that happens is that I think this is really not ever talked about but. I referred to it just in a funny way as like meet displacement but it's probably protein displacement like taking up room in your stomach with snacks and bullshit is, is America's biggest problem with obesity in my opinion because If you didn't feel yourself up with stuff and he had other options Are Even had other options. Your only options were were meat or protein then you would stuff your face with that so. I think that that's another thing to be cautious of every time you. Oh, just a couple of these animal crackers that are all just eat a couple of reasons. Whatever that whatever that's crap is that you're eating whenever you think about that. You're taking up space for something otherwise That could be important because animal crackers are not essential to your livelihood. As much as we want to think they are. You. Know One thing I want to mention I love what we're doing here because. If you guys haven't listened to it. You need to go back to the episode that we did with Nick Right. Nick talks a lot about how he did a lot of flexible dieting and he built a lot of bad habits. It was turned into kind of a disorder for him and he had to just get out of that zone and mark what you were mentioning there in terms of it's not the greatest idea trying to make bit these bad foods in because a pitcher mackerels, I did that for years but. Throughout that period of time. They were days that hit macaroni perfectly but a lot of the time I would try to fit some oreos in or fit something in it would be so tough for me to back off most of the time I would fail for backing off and D A. Two thirds of the box of oreos or eat a few more slices of pizza or instead of two tablespoons of butter. It would be five tablespoons of peanut butter and I would always be trying to find a way to fix myself because I was like okay. While I fitted and a little bit too much. What can I do hear? It. I never really was able to get out of that loop and also my cravings were out of this booking whirl. It was crazy because I was always trying to make these foods fit right. So. I'm I'm happy. You mentioned that because I had that same experience it was really hard for me to get Lean I. Never thought that Ah, be able to sustainably stay lean just because I liked lobbies food and it took me just getting these foods out of the house getting these foods totally out of my diet focusing on eating whole foods right and maybe sometimes every now, and then sometimes I'll have that stuff, but it's not as much as I. Used to it took about thirty to get to a place where I fully felt in control of my diet whereas when I was doing this fly like when I was doing I guess the the bad I F. Wyatt right 'cause I mean if I if I were if lane were here, he'd be like that's not I if I but honestly, that's the way most people are doing i. y., at most people aren't doing flexible dieting what you should be doing flexible dieting. I think in a sense maybe now I'm doing it the right way, but I'm eating way less of those foods. I don't have cravings for those suits. There's some fasting additive year there but it's it's it's easier for me to do don't need to think about it. I don't feel like I'm dieting. But what you mentioned there was guys go wash episode Nick Right please go listen to it after this. I like how he was saying like it wasn't just like if I'm going to have another bowl of cereal is like it was another box. So did I because I'm like finally someone understands the way I feel. You are absolutely right and you know everyone that's been listening to the podcast or has probably knows that I've been kind of. This. Type of flexible dieting for the past couple of months now, and just like anybody who finds something new they get super pumped and excited about it and I still am and I love the food that I eat. But you're absolutely right and seem like the second you Kinda Open that gate till like why could let it fit? You know it's sort of like you allow yourself to be. Vulnerable to those things you know like when when you're fasting in, you're not thinking about food like it doesn't matter like nothing's GonNa Phase you. But then the second year like Ooh like I think maybe I'll eat within the next twenty minutes or so then all of a sudden your stomach rumbling and he started getting hungry. So you know this is kind of the same thing I guess maybe I could make you know. This like all I told you guys here like having halo top like shakes and stuff like I. Don't do that anymore because I'm like you're being stupid like come on man they're delicious. They are very low in calorie like under five hundred calories for an entire bucket of of you know shake. But now I got rid of the halo top and now it's under three hundred or four hundred calories I should say so. Little things that I'm learning as well. But yeah, I do too. It's. It's crazy how like when you open that gate Allow you know some of these bad foods in it's it's I it it could get you. It's a double edged sword for sure. Well. It's Kinda like you know you brush your teeth and. I want you know some orange juice you're like, fuck? No. Because you you know you did something you did something I to your taste buds. and. This could work the opposite direction. You eat a candy bar and it's like, Hey, you wanna chicken breasts you're like now. I want more, candy bars. You flip your taste buds inside out. I like to refer for two and I think it's the reason why the? People tend to kind of cheat on our diets later in the day because you don't you you kind of at least no better. You Know Start Your Day off the donuts it's not a great place to start. And you know that the rest of the day's GonNa be shit show. You know if you start there, it'd be. It not that you can't do it. You certainly can do it but it for me personally I know it would make a lot more difficult if I got my taste buds heading that direction and that's why like. I, just I just try not to mess with. Too many things that? I think could get me thinking in that direction. But what I have been found to be really useful more recently I mean, I've completely eliminated like cheating on my diet at all like over the last couple weeks. been able to hold it. down. Per Pretty, damn good. and I think some of the differences for me more recently have been just bringing in some Mike Diet Sodas like I've been having like. I have like as Ziva. Via the. Soda. Off Amazon I also use a lot of the Element products use a lot of those. I use a lot of the Kito. vitals and just having those different flavors frigging awesome. It's just great to have some of those different flavors and. There's been times where I'm like just really feel like something sweet now does have a warranty Zevia soda that exciting but to me, it's pretty big deal because I don't really drink soda anyway. So. I say whatever you gotTa do and I have to agree with the Great do set which will have the show at some point but He says Zero Calorie Zero Harm. fucking great way to look at stuff zero Calorie. Zero harm our our boy Ron. PENNA. Who Studies cancer pre extensively he told us eat and drink as much diet crap as you can't. Is Pretty much what he? Like well, what about cancer and what about this? What about that? He's like you'll be fine. But. Anyway I think that it is a good idea to incorporate those things if they can just you away from otherwise as. A bunch of calories that you probably don't need. God and I was GonNa say just wrote rural quick about like tracking and making stuff that you're macro I. think it is still a good idea to at least learn it because like yesterday I looked at baggage like tortilla chips and I'm like Ooh that sounds good and I just flipping around mixing it. Now I'm like Oh that has I think it. was like one hundred and ninety calories per serving and you know what serving it's like you know like a couple chips, right so things like that that you'll learn to kind of understand like. Oh. Shit. That is not worth it like I'm not GonNa do that because it's going to mess up my entire day but yeah, that's all I had what you got insieme. So, another thing that I used to do that probably all of us used to do is I used to have a gallon jug. As at how Howard carry that around with me all the time every single day I never thought it was weird I just thought I was making the gains go all day long all. Unnecessary and mark to you to your point I think one of the biggest chain like one of the biggest supplements that has made a difference for me has been electrolytes I was using them before we had. Chris Irvine. Kito Guide Servant. He was the guy that was talking a lot about electrolytes on the podcast and how much they help with performance how good bear with fasting, and there's a supplement that has made a big difference in terms of me being able to perform. Well, while being fasted not being able to cramp up it's electrolytes. Element which I really dig. Kito byles taste really good Having that especially when fasted like I'll I can drink that and if I was feeling like I wanted to eat something it Kinda goes away almost immediately it could be partially because of getting a different flavor. But also because I mean you're sweating, you're getting sodium potassium magnesium in you probably mixing of being hungry for potentially just wanting meeting to hydrate in being thirsty which. Rather than just drinking water, right electrolytes will actually hydrate you. That's been one of the biggest supplements that's kind of been another leverage for me to be able to pull. So it's it's dope that you mentioned that makes a big difference. Yeah. That water will actually dehydrate you too. If you drink your drink, you can kind of drink too much water you shouldn't shouldn't be drinking so much water to where your P is like completely clear all day long all the time. So it's just something they kind of keep in mind I I don't think. I don't think under most circumstances that people really need like a gallon might be a little excessive but. I guess it would depend on each person, but I also know that. You can teach yourself to like really feel like you need a ton of water and I don't think that's great either I'd call Robinson touch upon that on our show where he was like. A lot of people drink way too much water. You know has got a hard to figure out. The exact right amount. But usually like if your performance in the gym is good and you, you feel pretty good otherwise usually you're okay I would just say like Make. Sure. You specifically drink some water every day like just flat out water. You know because I think that. We're drinking coffee and tea and soda and things like that, and we're probably not. Probably. Not really actually drinking much water also just make sure you have some but you don't need to carry rally gallon with you. Yeah and I'd say the element electrolytes are definitely the best ones I've ever had What's so like I'm kind of on on the cheap side. So all actually just mix like a big like a COUPLA or shock cup of water with like some other BCA's, and I'll thrill element in there as well. I was keep refilling that all day long and people are not salting random foods like will salt like sweets or whatever, and all salt my as and in this case, the the salt from or the sodium from element makes everything distaste even better it. It's so weird I never would have thought that adding salt to like literally everything would make it taste better but being able to get. Like a thousand milligrams or something like that in each packet. And the flavored ones only ten calories. I it's dude seriously like everyone needs to co- try these these electrodes are they're they're amazing. Yeah. It's a thousand milligrams of sodium two hundred, potassium sixty magnesium and like dude I like I used to cramp up quite a bit during Jujitsu especially towards the latter end of a session. And I was thinking maybe it's just because I'm fasting too long. Maybe. I. GotTa Eat some extra foods nights of this doesn't happen but ever since I started using electrolytes before every single session. I don't cramp anymore. No matter how much I'd go how much sweat it makes a very big difference. So if you're a powerlifter bodybuilder, a performance athlete doesn't matter you're fasting or not vicious part of what you use because a lot of the bodybuilders stole salt their food that much it's kind of a trend within that right and they do cramp up a bit of bats. Okay. So it's just it's super damn useful. It is. It's super useful yeah yeah. Element products just so people know they are salty. I. Mean. They even like Kinda, Brag about says it on the side of the package and so some people might find to be salty, but just be aware of that like they. They are salty I actually enjoy the taste of him like you guys to They have on flavored ones was I think some people are like will have on flavored. but is weird funny. As it sounds you can even use the on flavored ones and you can use a mask salts. You can use them, put them. You can put him on a steak or you can throw them in with whatever your favorite. Your favorite protein shakes yeah it's great. I mean it's a good way to add some potassium and some. Nutrients tear to your meals. Now, they also make some weird flavors now they have like. Some sort of spicy one asked me something. Chilly something or other, and they have a chocolate one to the chocolate. One is really good I had that. A few days ago mixed with some slingshot protein. fricken. Awesome. So Anyway. I. Think. You guys give them a shot. I have to do another podcast and a little bit. But I think next episode that we do we should kind of stay on the same topic but talk. A little bit more in terms of lifting. You know because when it comes stupid lifting stuff I don't know. I don't think anybody on this show has me beat. In on the arms in one day program and all kinds of stupid stuff. So We can get we can get into that at that program is like where you stay at the gym all day and you just keep eating and you do curls in between basically. It was amazing. I just couldn't move my arms forever and they didn't really. Budge at all but. We get more into that on the next show Andrew take us out here. Yeah. Now you got the wheels turn and I'm thinking the Spicy Element Sodium packets like marinating some got an ass either like that would be insanely good because it'd be kinda sweet and salty, and then throw it on the grill. Like? Yes. Okay. Anyway. Sorry. I got excited. Thank you everybody for today's episode. If you let us know what your mistakes are. Let us know if you guys made the same ones we did or if he took it a step further and did something even more a bigger, a bigger mistake that'd be funny if we can all just hang out in the chat our in the comments section and talk about all the things that we screwed up.

So check it out nice mark. Who? One more thing to add into the mix and but I still actually do this. So I guess. I guess we have never learned no I. I. I eat all my food with a spoon and part of the reason is like i. i WanNa miss out on like not getting all the nutrients in so. I don't bone broth on just about everything to so. I want to make sure I. You know soak some them that up but. It all started many years ago when I did Dan do Shane's body opus diet and I would get like the fattest ground beef that I could I would eat it with a spoon and I'd like slurp up my other thought like the grossest thing he's ever seen in his life I like slower like spoonfuls of fat with like. Singing of beef that I would I would eat because I thought you know for some reason I kind of thought when I was on that style, Diet that. The more fat eight the more fat.

Oh Hi beautiful back for little mouth sites kick eh with Amy Brown okay. It is January night Thursday. This is the first official official four things. PODCAST it's back for the New Year. Sure I'm amy and I'm pumped for what is ahead in this new year. Now this first episode back is four different things but we all kind of has a new year theme because because they feel like everybody this time of year is working on naked life better so the first thing we are going to get into is little small things that you can do to make yourself better this year. I mean these are small things that are not hard and I will say that one of the things that I talked about was making your bed when you hear the thing. Hear me talk about it but I didn't touch on because it wasn't mentioned engined anybody else in the reddit. Thread was not pressing this news button but I was reminded of it this morning when my alarm went off and I really wanted to press snooze but I'm a recovering thanks news addict so I don't allow myself to do it because I know if I do it then I probably will start doing it again. And it's just so not good for you so I want to add that to the list but matting it right here on the intro. Won't hear me talk about it in the thing but just know that. If you press snooze I would like to encourage you this year to try to not be a snooze. Her and I know how much snoozing is awesome. Like I get it. It's amazing I used to go to bed at a certain time and set my alarms like I would set up all my different sneezes. My first alarm would go off earlier so that I could press snooze and that's so messed up if you think about it even though I enjoyed it a lot. It just really doesn't set your day up for success so try not to press snooze. I'll go over that and the first thing. The second thing is going to be Deal with fashion for twenty twenty like some trends going to see just a few that I'll share with you in case you're wondering how you can like just dip your toe into what's trendy right now or the colors for twenty twenty a lot of people like to know okay. What colors do I need to focus on for this year? That would be really fun to wear and try out and I will add another note to that in the thing I later got a note from my friend Kelly because Iran Ram the trends by her. Because she's my fashion Guru Kelly from velvets edge and I was talking to her about the pleats and I share in there. That she's kind of depressed about the plead she's not into them but also the puffy sleeves and she later shared with me. Oh shoot I wanted wanted you to add that. I want to be clear that if you get on board with the puffy sleeve trend that you keep the bottom really simple and fitted so if you're puffy on on top keep it fit on the bottom so you'll know what I'm talking about when you listen to the second thing and then the third thing is going to be my word of the year so I don't know it's my first time to ever really have a word in. It's nothing profound. Don't worry at all it. Just a word that kept popping into my head over Christmas break and I thought Oh when I started. I started seeing people post on instagram. They had words of the year. I thought well maybe this should be my word of the year. So I'M GONNA share it with Y'all and maybe if you don't have a word yet you'll be thinking yeah about your word or words. Some people have multiple words and then we can all have our words that we focused on this year. And then we'll circle back to those and see how did later and then the fourth thing. It is a little chat that I did with Keaton clause. She is a you know Christmas. She's just like the Santa Claus basically really she was on the podcast back in November to talk about how to decorate for Christmas. And I know love. y'All y'all appreciated that. But I was going to call her second ago and I was trying to describe it. It was about to say she's Christmas and a cup. But I don't even know why I was about to say that but I thought I'd finish my Senate since I cut myself off but yes Keaton clauses Christmas than a cup. Like she's just so oh awesome and sweet and I love her tips but even though her business is predominantly Christmas she does stuff year round and she does online consulting and she talks about the different holidays that are coming up but really she also talks about how I mean. It's January but you probably should start planning for Christmas now and really why she wants us to do this. And we go through the different holidays of the year and different ways maybe she can help you with consulting online or not right. Maybe you just follow her on instagram. She'll give you tips but point is which I kinda thought. She was crazy for this but she said the last three months of the year between Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just get so. Oh Heck Dick and crazy for people but if we got better at planning all that stuff earlier in the year that we could actually enjoy the holiday season a little but more and it makes sense if you really think about it. So she's got some ways in the new year that you can start prepping for that and that'll be the fourth thing and then at the end we got the email shoutout bringing that back. That's typically what we do but I know in the best dub shows our hearing the last two weeks. We didn't have that so anyway. Happy to be back happy new year. And here's the episode. I okay so here are some small things you can do to better yourself. Someone had posted Synon- read it the question. What something small you can do today to better yourself? And I'll
