And then Jim Belushi one of our favorites from television and movies from the last few years, it will be joining us but on the phone line is a gentleman who's been saying pouting this desk we went on the air for what six years Chris here. I have been fortunate to be an NFL network employees I think it was like employee number three. Hired there back in the day since two thousand three have been many many pro football hall of fame induction ceremonies in one should have happened obviously earlier this. month. But It was supposed to be the one with the you know the huge centennial one, hundred year twenty members of the incoming class for twenty twenty and obviously due to Covid nineteen that has been postponed. and this gentleman didn't hear his name called again and I keep saying over and over and over again, this guy deserves to be in the pro football hall of fame. And he heard his name yesterday. Named as the finalist for the new category that's been created for at least the next four years to try and make sure that people like him here their name called. Because they deserve to be enshrined but sometimes get lost when you're throwing coaches in the same category as players and contributors owners Steve Sable is you know as an contributor? He's finally heard his name call. At any rate, this gentleman won two super bowls as a head coach for the Oakland Raiders. This after John Madden pro football hall of Famer. Did it for Al Davis Pro Football Famer. Also he backed up Len Dawson is a quarterback hall of Famer. For Hank Schram Hall of Famer. And Super Bowl for. A playing career, of Note, and then a coaching career that is hall of fame where the thrilled to have the twenty twenty one finalists for enshrinement in the pro football fame coaching category, Tom Flores here on the rich Eisen show how are you coach? You there, Tom. All right I think we're we've got some sort of miss connection right there hold on so. The Air Tom How are you? I'm good. I'm good. Thank you very much. Yeah. Just listened to you. I'm old enough to remember Alfred Newman. I know I. Wish you had had the probably. It was straining you have the what me worry over this very subject for all those years. But what? What was it like to get this phone call? Yesterday to say that you're finalist for the pro football hall of fame and I I should say that that you more often than not usually more than just usually this does lead to enshrinement and getting the getting the checkmark from the committee. What was this phone call like for you Tom Yesterday? When it finally happened. It was emotional when it finally happened. what I talked to David Baker. Because it doesn't really matter when in the matters if you get in although I've been a little Beijing. They've been a little reluctant to excited because of what's happened the last two or three years but. Still, it looks like this is going to be it. I got an emotional and got tears in my eyes and And just started thinking about. The six two years that I spent professional football. Sixty years no question about it. Who did you think of anybody in particular Tom? No just go back to the. Interest we're back to the first thing I did they do view they're not sixty Santa Cruz California birthday the existed of the Oakland Raiders we didn't even know where Oakland was at the time and we're back we're Davedroegkamp but a high school Santa Cruz. And I said well. This Day Appel happens where is Oakland anyway we`re And we're played in San Francisco and or two years and the give it a shot and see what happens. I got the rest of my life to work doing something else. I had a teaching degree at the time. And here we are sixty one years later. And Well, a lot of things have happened. First Time You met Al Davis was when Tom Floors sixty three, sixty, three when he came to Oakland. And he was He came from the sending charges. What's Syndrome on? The very first time met Al. it was I like I like what he did. I mean we were. We're is in. Ten minutes later, we were on the Job Work Talking Football Fassi game and it was fun to talk to him about it because he was football football and more football. So he taught me a lot. And then he really rescued the raiders. Don Strip. So he was on the on the greaseboard short passing game, right Tom just short passes just little short passes quick. Go. Downtown. He's A. All. These little digs this go down down ride I bet I bet so. So, then getting into. Coaching. Was, was it AL, who called you to get you in a coaching? Was it madman who who actually hired you when you're an assistant for all those years under Madden for as the wide receiver coach and men the Hall of famers that you coached at that position during that time how did that get started for you? Well, I I. Want to retire from playing but nobody really wanted me after Kansas City. So I, my first year coach actually was with Buffalo as. Short time coach just for the season. and. Then I came back to California by home up in the bear. Allah. friendships and the always. So I called him and said I'm looking for something And I'd like to stay in football. And So I'll. Up. Job. An interview with Joe Man. So I interview John. In the two of them hard and. Went to work, right away coaching wide receivers and hall of Famer quarterback federal the golf. who which I thrown his cruise past you when he was rookie. So I played I played with Fred through him. I passed I draw versus John Back coach. Became head coach cut. Little about to say you run the Gamut Tom Floors. That's for sure. What was it like being interviewed by John Madden for a position in that? Seventy to eighty cash. Pretty casual. Did he was He talked about this and that and we got on the buckboard a little bit but I think mostly he wanted. I think he realized that Going you know with AL, advise because I played for Al.. and I knew the system I knew the offense I knew the raiders way. So I think he just wanted to get it on me because I didn't know Johnny, Depp Point and we we ended up spending. Eight years, and And very close long days long nights and and through a glorious Super Bowl. Year. For Him. So what he retired I was washing up to still be there. And and get the job. So it was. It was it was we have maintained straight year was only two coaches. That's pretty rare doubting no question about it and so were you surprised when Madden decided to retire Tom in you got the job was at that catch you by surprise he's such a young man. Yeah. I was surprised. But not totally because I saw him in agony when he was ever ulcer that he had and and other things do then just was time ten years. it was time for him to step away and. And Jesus stepped stepped away big time. I know the crazy thing is when he finally when he finally got into the hall, people were wondering if you get in get in as a coach broadcast or a video game Impresario, you know I mean, he's yeah he's been something else Tom flurries here on the rich Eisen show super bowls fifteen and eighteen. The winner of of those two super bowls the the head coach of the raiders three and fifty three in the regular season including eight and three in the playoffs on top of all that right here on on the show winning that Super Bowl did you realize the momentous moment it was for you and for people like you Tom? No you don't think about it when when you're in the middle of the battle in the middle of the play offs and the excitement and the emotion up and down the roller coaster ride I call it. you don't think about it. They can tell us all over there when it's all over, you realize what you've done a while. He's definitely saying, wow, because what do you do now? What? Well now what do again you have to do it again because that's That's the life of a coach. You Win, and then you try to win again and then you try to win again and You know never dreamed never dream that ever. Ever, be on that. Stage In my lifetime when when the people of the world are watching you and your coaching, this This team for Lulu Oakland. And and when. The head coach of Hispanic descent I minority head coach doing super bowl. You are also the first. Hispanic starting quarterback in the National Football League do you think you've blaze a trail? Tom. Well I like to think of it. I didn't take it at a time and I didn't realize until later in life when I. When I was later in my career, what I was traveling around certain airs and people would come out of Hispanic background and as you know, we watched you. Coach the Super Bowl Fifteen or eighteen to buy dad cried. As really yeah he was so proud and I don't even know the the person's Dad, but he was so proud because what you did he cried. that was pretty special you but something like that happen you beat the Eagles in Super Bowl fifteen and then Washington and super bowl eighteen you the want to drop the Marcus Allen. Pirouette Tom was at you. Know we we fought every day spends a spinner Hamad seventy, four yards later touchdown. Down there you're GONNA turn around spin around coming back, and then you're going to pick up plug in his blocker. And speaking of GM. Tom. It's time to get him into. Don't you think? Jim There wasn't a lot of pro bowls. But he did win two super bowls the rookie of the year and he made big plays a big game. So you know hopefully at some point is lifetime you'll you'll share that experience you I mean not many first overall drafted quarterbacks will end up winning two super bowls Tom. I mean it's really Kinda that simple I mean they're you know You you could. You could really just you know when somebody comes in with such Hoopla such. A promise from one team winds up with an another and then wins two super bowls. It's quite a story that Plunkett has put together and one with utility. I couldn't be happier for Tom I really couldn't I mean seriously just just even in in the twelve minutes that we've talked just walking through we didn't even talk about you being a player for Angstrom and up Dawson for a super bowl I mean your football life is something that is so unique. It deserves to be enshrined I couldn't be happier for you. Well Richard. Bridget thanks for your support. Thanks for all the kind words. It's really A. It's it's exciting and I'm I'm I'm not going to get to. So yeah because know a year to go this pandemic biggest screwed it up. I. Hope you're staying safe and staying healthy and staying well best you can Tom. You thanks for the call. congrats again for that call you got from the hall. That's Tom Floors. Now I know many of you might be sitting out there thinking, okay. You don't talk about fight club talk about. No hitters, you know talk about perfect games it is when you are named by the senior committee. Is as close to shoot a rubber stamp as possible it has happened before where people are named and they don't get in. But this gentleman eighty, three years old thing. But sixty years and football it's not just also and that's why I think. Dick, for meal should be in. It's not just what you did. Do you have the rings? FOUTS's in Marino's I mean we could go on and on about players who didn't get the rings that are in. Strew. Okay and you could say also well, look at fouts's stats. They're not the same as you know, breezes or whatever different arrows what people meant for their team's different Don coryell. Again, I'm speaking on the mighty your ten ninety right now it's not just about rings. It's about contribution to the game. And it's not just long jetty either. Guy. Shows up in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty for the AFL for the raiders place the raiders. Winds up playing on a super bowl. He is the first. Hispanic starting quarterback. He is the first Hispanic head coach to win a super bowl. He does it twice. He does it for a hall of fame owner any takes over for a hall of fame coach and he I mean. Honestly. How about that story? He threw bullet Nicole. His first pass is first touchdown. Then he coached him then he won with him then he cut him. That's a football acts of you know what I mean. That's football to me. You know what just take a look at Dick for meals, football life and the people that he's been around and the lives that he has touched and he? flurries beat Vir- meal in the Super Bowl as the he was the Philadelphia Eagles head coach that Flora's beaten Super Bowl fifteen. An addict for me a one. With the Saint Louis Rams. And in between what he did with the chiefs and the players that he touched, you talked to Rhonda Gorski for two seconds. Ski was the quarterback that Plunkett floors beat in that Super Bowl fifteen honestly. So I'm thrilled. I'm thrilled. Now I know the ring does place people in a certain category. But Tom Florez with two. Super. Bowls. And the second super bowl he got against super bowl eighteen, you know the he beat. Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs it just is. Something that I'm thrilled and in this day and age for a human being to be alive, it's better to. Calm floors is eighty three year old man. I'm so thrilled he got that call.

Normally. The date for the indy five hundred would be say may twenty third? Not August Twenty Yup but as we all know, these are wild times in which we live unique times to say the least and the. Indianapolis. Five hundred. At one o'clock eastern time there will be a flag. It will drop. And we'll be racing and it'll be on our friends on NBC, Sunday at One eastern time, and here to talk about this as well as the advance auto parts calling all diehards dot com website where people can submit videos. Of telling everyone to start their engines. None other than the CO owner of Stewart Haas racing, as well as a hall of Famer the pride of Indiana himself Tony. Stewart, here on the rich Eisen show. How are you? Tony. Man I'm great hanging in there and Trying to live life a little different than what we're all used to. But at the same time, we're still excited that you know we're all able to Rayson excited for the five hundred this weekend. What was the first time you walked into the brickyard you remember that? Oh my God. As a kid I'm not even sure what year was but I went with my father I. Think the first time was to one of the qualifying days. remember at A. Separate Year my dad taking me to the racing. We sat on the front row of three and four, which you can't see a lot from there but everything that went by really fast. So that agreed appreciation at a young age you know for for the Indianapolis Motor speedway in Indy five hundred, I bet, I, bet. So you know growing up I guess, who is your favorite racer? Their AJ AJ. foyt Aj. Osman. Bad Ass. Aj Ford I remember that I remember watching. Sports growing up. And listening to you know. Jackie Stewart right and Chris Khanna on the Mike and Doing doing the race I just I I lived for I. Loved it. Loved every second of a Tony. You know. To I I I every year even when I have the first opportunity in ninety six to race at Indianapolis and and. You know remember all the pageantry and everything leading up to it I mean I. I was Iraq I didn't even know how it was going to drive the car to. The practice as qualifying all that was pretty sanitary insane and and then you get to race day and you have all the pre-race tree and everything going on and it was like just please tell me to get in the car so I can drive now because driving me crazy. So I was I was glad we finally got to got to that point. I. Bet I bet tell me about the day where you ran in the brickyard and then took care of some NASCAR. Where you you actually took care of two races in one day. Walk me through that one Tony. makes for a long day. I can tell you that I bet we win. You know then you five hundreds and in Indiana, and then you fly down to Charlotte north. Carolina. To run the Coca Cola six hundred, which is Nascar's longest race of the year. So you know just I did it twice I did at ninety nine the first year, and then did it again in two thousand one and and not a guy that's a big workout guy on. Right just Wisconsin. Old School like Aj was I guess in that regard but just literally it was didn't. I was so nervous about being dehydrated I didn't eat enough solitude during the day and that really got to me at the end of the six hundred it's a long day I mean the hardest part probably. running indy five hundred for me because I was so used to being in the soccer every week at that point that you know being in an Indycar, just one time that year for the five hundred was the hardest part of it But you get done with that you you get on a helicopter fly to the to the Indy airport. Again on an airplane, you fly down to the Concord Airport, get another helicopter and landed in the Infield the race tracks so Just makes for a very, very long day took a lot of people that that made it a logistics happen but the second time we did it, we had a trainer that went with us You know we got. Clearance on the flight to once we took off from from Indianapolis got an ear we were direct all the way to concord didn't have any jumps to make. So it was a forty four minute flight down there but having a trainer and having a medical staff to make sure they got IV fluids me during that flight and making sure that I have the right to eat to. Get through the next six, hundred mile race was a big part of I mean to do the indy five hundred and then fly to a totally different state, and then as you point out the longest race for Nascar I mean that is You gotta you gotTa love racing and I just. I. Just drove up to see my mom up in you know the the East Bay and northern. California just drove it straight. My back was killing me I mean, literally about three four hours in but I'm a fifty year old guy though you know what I'm saying I can't imagine what you did. Impressive well, it's you know and so that's perfect. Example I mean everybody thinks it's just like driving a streetcar, the the seats in the race cars both indy-car in the stock car you know or form Phychi. So it's it's the most comfortable seat you're going to be in from that stance, but you just it's like anything else any other sports whether it's football basketball baseball and you have to be Prepared for it and season for it and you know being in a race car three days a week every weekend like I was running You know you're in shape for ready for it. So you know the biggest thing was just the nutrition side of it and making sure that in between the races we were getting rehydrated. which we were getting the advantage of IV fluids to help us with that and and making sure that we're eating the right foods that we're going to help us with the energy we needed to run a four hour six, hundred mile race in Charlotte after the five hundred was you know having that preparation and having those people in place to help us. Get ready for that. You Know May Donald. Possible. Tony Stewart here on the rich Eisen show fortunate enough before the pandemic truly hit inducted into the Nascar Hall of fame this past January and none other than Jimmy Johnson doing the inducting word is Jimmy rank in terms of guys that you have raced against Tony. I haven the top five for sure you know and and it's not always just about what he does on the racetrack. It's all the stuff. He does author racetrack the kind of person he is off the race track I consider him a great friend and then somebody that I. Admire me He. Whatever it is, he chooses to do in his life whether it's his personal life, his professional life he gives a hundred and ten percent to it and and you know he works hard at every aspect of. The things that he does. I I'm lucky if I woke up in time to even have a meal before I would get up in the morning for practice Jimmy on the other hand would've already wrote a sixty two hundred mile bike bride. Probably Jog. Ten Miles and then got up and got a shower got Scott Breakfast and got ready for practice on me. Just one of those guys that you know he's he's definitely getting the most out alive right now for sure. Well, he's talked about you know flying with you once upon a time eaten hamburgers with you. Sir You saying that was out of character for Jimmy to to be challenging burgers like that. Yeah. On Your jet. Eat to watch them eat a hamburger. It's like four object him. So he to me like man I where's the closest McDonald's or Wendy's or Burger King or something been me John's I'm hungry. So you know sit there and watch Jimmy Cheeseburger like that. He's he's like this is all you have. What do you mean? What more would you want? And Hang out with me for week he goes I get straight down I'm like absolutely not getting away from my comfort foods. Well. He also said that in in on that plane ride, you're feeding your dogs filet Mignon while he was eating burgers. Zealotry Story to Tony. We why that happened but the dog got the got the steak and I got a cheeseburger or something so. But. I love my dogs too. So I'll do anything for my. I I am with you on that front Sir you know our our dog I, think my wife likes dogs more than people I. Think personally you know timely possible may have always disliked the saying that you could sit there and take your dog and take your girlfriend and put them in the trump in two hours later opened and trump and see which ones actually the. I mean that sounds the story right there. Tony Stewart everybody. based. On the rich Eisen show Okay. So this indy five, hundred what what are you most looking forward to I mean you WanNa talk about a unique this is we're talking August we're talking to empty brickyard. You, what are you expecting out of this one? Well I mean it's definitely different for sure I mean this isn't this isn't the year than any of us in any. Professional Sport wanted to see on any fan point but you know I, think. What I'm excited about I mean I'm super excited about what advance auto parts and diehard batteries are doing I mean. It's it's a year where it's just wasn't possible to have fans at the race and You know advance auto parts and diehard batteries figured out a way to try to get the fans engaged and make them part of the prairie ceremonies and then the command to start your engines and having the promotion of. Calling all diehards dot com if you get on there and send in a video of your. Of Your Command for the drivers to start their engines you have a chance to be that person gets the starting field and and If you don't make that in the next fifty people get two hundred dollars gift certificates. For diehard batteries or any products to advance auto parts, habit their stores. So it's a pretty cool promotion and I think it's something where it shows how much advance auto parts or celebrating the fifty years. A diehard batteries have been at the Indianapolis Motor speedway starting the entire thirty three car starting field and celebrating their fifth years of commitment to the Annapolis five hundred. So to have those guys partner up and you know to have the fans be able to be a part of of the five hundred even though we can't be there in person to have that promotion and have these people have an opportunity to participate. I. Think is is about as good as you could possibly ask for. So really proud of advance and you know die hard for participating in this and helping bring the experience back to the. People calling all diehards dot com through advance auto parts is there any tips you can give Tony as somebody who's heard this for a long time? You're native from Indiana This is a very serious business of telling someone to start their engines you is there a word? Is there a word that the that you should you suggest somebody? Could you know accent is it? Is it Start Your engines I? Mean Walk me through what you think would make a very good call on this front. I was telling Doug Bowls from NAPA, litter speedway today I said I what I was most grateful of this. When I was a driver heard that command was I was glad that the cars didn't have carburetors on I'm glad they were just feel injected because if they were carburetors, my foot was bouncing on the throttle pedal so. From nerves and my legs shake and that. Would have flooded the motor. So I'm glad they were feel injected where there wasn't any few going in there till. We just lost Tony Right there. Interesting. That he says just as we start your engines. Right in the middle of all that well, okay. Let's see if he'll call back. Lost Him right there if you WANNA pop pop on their Christopher see if he's still there. I. Think we lost him. I was even going. You know what I mean like. How would you?

If you WANNA, do the same thing for Ole. Miss where the speed limit is the same number as. Archie Manning's number if you wanNA, do that.

You can tweet at richeisenshow our instagram at richeisenshow our facebook page. TJ Jefferson our social media grandmaster does a great job with all of them and that's the way that you can communicate with all of us You know we we pretty much see it all.

I will I will hand over the rich Eisen show twitter address for this sort of thing the question is, how do we verbally write down what is the copy that is associated with the choice between Ole Miss and Michigan? HERE'S DEAL DONNA The witnesses I. I will do this the way that. You don't think I will. Okay okay. So Lane Kiffin. says. Essentially. A The Big Ten and PAC twelve players that don't have a season should be allowed to transfer. Yeah. They should have waivers they should have they should be they should be able to go. Right, they should be absolutely able to go play where conferences currently are. Ignoring the science. That big twelve that big ten and PAC twelve officials clearly heard. I fully believe at some point the SEC. And the big twelve, and certainly the ACC were North Carolina. Went online completely reversed Michigan state told its students they're online yesterday. Unfortunately, as Dr Brian, hainline pointed out the chief medical officer of the NC Double A. on Monday show. There's not enough testing to test every single person on a campus. In the same way that the NFL is doing it or what have you but For the moment sec saying they're still considering this thing they're going to go. So. Lane Kiffin. Hey let everybody in the pack the big ten. So do they return those players when the pandemic over or does he get to keep them? He's Muslim talking about guys who are probably going to go pro next year. Oh so people are going to lead people who want to enjoy their senior play their senior year or going to be going to then let them go. So did just anybody getting ready to go. So it's a one year thing, they should be able to play for Linkin it miss they should be able to play anywhere where they're playing football this fall. Okay. Is One of those, and so you said the following I just. said the following what did you say? Repeat it. Because I don't want you. Putting words in your mouth go ahead. I said, would you rather stay at Michigan and maybe play in the spring or go play in a place where? You're going to play against better competition in the SEC and you're going to get more exposure at Ole miss. No, you did not now see I'd love to let you say this. I did say. You did not put it in the box in the construct of just this year in the pandemic. Do you want to say in general? Very Large. No covert in the world tha coaches off. Dock in the mud, knock yards and a cloud of dust or play for a young innovative coach who has coached professionals in a big time conference for Big Time College Teams in length Giffen who would you rather point for Harbaugh if it and I think the answer is obvious. A. Dude. You confu call me delusional or Michigan's delusional. You say you're a big cat guy 'cause Wisconsin's actually beat Michigan No I. Him As. She whole are delusional in thinking that they have a chance to win the national championship. You can sit here and say I delusional Michigan Guy Okay fine. You could say that but I'm not delusional to the point where I'm not outraged by the results of the Michigan Ohio state game over the last. Well, you know it's coming each year and years. I'm not delusional to know that Michigan is not. As it has been when I went to school up there and a shot at winning the national title or up there with Clemson and Alabama is right now I'm not sitting here saying that my program is on that level I'd love for it to be on that level every year I go in hoping that we are going to be on that level, and once we are on that level, we will be very difficult to stop. And I'm also not delusional enough to know that my coach who I adore. and. That's fine because his grades my first quarterback when I went to school there, get it I get it and he does win a hell of a lot of football games I. Wish One more certainly against Ohio state I'm not delusional enough to to sit here and say I know you and many others they keys doodle. Okay where he talks about not eating chicken nervous. VERDES TAKES HIS SHIRT OFF at? Practices. Right he's a lack of role. Never. been far on a tarmac. Go doodles fair or Wackadoo it'll you want to go my whack doodle against yours in this equation, I'll take mine. Well, my lack of Doodo coach National Championship. I'll take mine over yours. I'll take my school over. My institution of higher learning over that one, you want to be apparent you want WanNa. Send cage somewhere you send him to lane Kiffin as to go play in the NFL go for it. So what's the class right Michigan didn't send Michigan has had some of the most players in the last three combines. As any other school have. Offense players three years ago. Three years ago. Three years ago offensive. You tell me what quarterback just me if you're a quarterback, do you want to go home for Michigan? What stand in the I formation and hand the ball off Hundley? Action Holy? Crap. Michigan's quarterback situation under HARBAUGH has been disappointing I'm not GonNa lie I'm not going to be delusional here but only offensive players. When you come in dressed like Cam Newton after wins this year by the way and by the way. May I point out? Brockman is still wearing the Cam Newton neck Dr from the other day I just like that regular. Clothing this is your is my my Mass Trauma Find Alec Septic. Whack a doodle. Okay but when you come in dressed like the guy on the right this year. Sometimes, it might be cam had a great game. I guarantee you. Guaranteed us. One time you come in dress like, Cam Newton because chase win of which had a great ballgame who's the guy who keeps drafting Michigan Defenders? WHO's the guy who keeps believing in this? WHO's that gas, but you're moving the goalposts. Offense of players offense. Give it as a offense coach. If you're the top quarterback in the nation, you're not going to play from Michigan. I'm just seeing what? You're pleased to be out of this line of fire right now. Yeah. This ain't got nothing to do with me. We can make it about you. This is about me. No. About about teachers we could bring up Drew Pearson. Right. I'm ready for that. PUT It out there. Put putting on richeisenshow question who do you want to play more right the question. Now, your question is, what did you say if your player and Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah whatever you're you're you're you turned into like Charlie Brown's teacher to me after a while over Michigan hate just to try and go want Wa Wa wa Wa wa he does. He got you fired up because you can't sit here. And say what he says. That's why you need. You can't. Sit here and say I, think I have the support of the wormhole you are a player with national football league desires and hopes. And want to get the most out of your college experience. You. Go to all miss over Michigan Because Lane? Kiffin knows how to put. Offensive. Players in the pros. That's what you're saying. That's what I'm saying. Okay. So horrible only knows how to put offensive players in the pros like. Andrew Luck. or no he's we can't. He can't be. He can't be held responsible for Andrew Right because Andrew was so special coming in as well as. About Jim how're by I'm sure don't want to I'm sure it's tough.

SMU's Return from a Death Sentence

"In the history of college football only one team has been hit with what's called the death penalty punishment that so extreme it essentially kills the entire football program it wasn't Baylor after it's sexual assault scandal here was that high school players were being given big sums of money to go to SMU payments of thousands of dollars tens of thousands of dollars years to its current probationary period it was southern Methodist University the Small School in Dallas Texas back in the nineteen eighties they were hit hard over guard including the NC double A. Because I mean this wasn't exactly a program with a rich tradition basically since the fifties they had not been very successful so aw crude violations and it decimated the program for decades but now the mustangs are looking for pro sir claimed some national titles in there they got three conference championships in that span and they were led by what's known as the Pony Express so Chris let's start the story back in one of the wildest errors in college football the nineteen eighty s so SMU in the one thousand nine hundred takes Chris Vini about how SMU has clawed its way back into the national rankings through a new coach and a rather unusual recruiting tactic the player to come in and that continues to move forward into eighty two eighty three eighty four they get hit with some more penalties than eighty-five and the most serious violation added seven channel eight sports takes you along route of the pony express a one hour preview of the undefeated mustangs road to their eighth postseason bowl appearance running backs Eric uh-huh family's cars you know anything you can name the that that a high school kid in a family might want it was really the wild wild west of recruiting only how SMU was competing with the likes of Texas Texas am for players it was instantly going to draw attention because people weren't used to it they get hit with some small penalties early on like steps to punish. SMU What exactly did they do really drastic reductions in scholarships they're hit with some television bands where they can't play on TV in those days but this wasn't unique to SMU it was happening at a lot of schools in the conference it was happening everywhere Smu just took it to another level there's all sorts of story from wondering and the athletic I'm under skelter and I'm could beat the Davidson it's Friday October eighteenth and this is the lead this was one of the best teams in the country wanting to talk about conference championship in consecutive undefeated they stayed undefeated untied and in their six zero and the ranked in the top twenty five for the first time in more than thirty years today we're going to talk with you end at the last minute dickerson changed to Smu and to this day he will never say why that was okay so at first the NC double A. Took some smaller I think there is something of emotion and as Persson he was presented a car by people associated with Texas am it was gold transam people joked that was called the Trans am and players who were selling tickets to boosters they get put on probation that happens in one thousand nine hundred eighty one but it doesn't really slow them down because they're really starting to get Persson and Craig James Eric Dickerson we're going to be a pro football famer one on one of the best running backs of all time was just like a man among boys out there on that field is running out officials push back against the NC double A. When they started to get sanctioned there was a point where the school disassociated itself with what he called the naughty time they've already promised money to a lot of these kids some players essentially had contracts and they knew that if they immediately stopped payments players were going to go for everybody watch him just literally explode and it looks like everybody people got position on any just began the lakes in the cushion about these boosters a little bit I mean these are happening at a time when there's this huge economic boom in Texas and it seems like the boosters are really using kind of nine boosters and that kind of called the boosters off guard they thought the school was going to try to fight back against the answer to play a little bit more but the school wanted to is about players who would flip on signing day to go to SMU or to go to a different school in the conference because someone came in late with with the new payment there's a famous story of Eric and you realize the walls were closing in everybody a some you realize that and realized that they had to figure out a way to get out of it at the same time Dallas was booming in the nineteen seventies it was there was an oil boom there was a real estate boom the TV show Dallas would J. R. Ewing was was big game winner take all we're all working together in the boardrooms and stuff like that and there's only one southwest conference school that is in Dallas in that Smu and eventually those the schools that they went through in these college football programs that they support as as they're bragging rights like you said and as kind of you know their their point of like their their biggest point of competition on the one year death penalty the NCWA the death penalty was no football in nineteen eighty-seven along with that there were strict strict restrictions on scholarships that they could do moving forward and when you cut off the lifeblood of a program which is recruiting it takes it takes a long long time to recover from have things established for years the instability thought it would be five to seven years at SMU would be able to recover from it and that was not at all the case and this was first year count on that everybody wanted to get to Dallas and so as town grew you got a lot of alumni from all these different southwest conference schools should've known you do whatever you could sabotage me overreact I'm not exactly GonNa blow up your wells you know especially since they're going to be mind this unsuitable and reveal what was going on so they were in a position where they wanted to try to stop it but they also knew they couldn't stop it cold did the school itself did any of the boosters or any of the schools nineteen eighty six monthly payments ranging from fifty to seven hundred twenty five dollars were made to numerous student athletes the sanctions levied against Smu the body trade tracy thirty two he was the type of player that does not come around very often and the team's success caught a lot of people off give off the impression that it was trying to clean itself up but there were still payments going around the players and it was not as clear cut as they wanted it to be yeah can you talk everybody else seems to be doing all right so you have these boosters who keep breaking the rules the NC Double A. is closing in and then at the end of nineteen eighty six the NC double realized in part because of the actions of people above them and people long before them this situation at Smu was so involved to the colleges from all over the country to come in try to find some good players that they wouldn't have been able to get otherwise and it was basically a free for all and I assume there were no hard feelings the penalties be truly felt and did this punishment for Smu have an effect on the other teams in their conference who as we know were brings the ultimate punishment the joint investigation between SMU and the NC Double A. has concluded that between September of nineteen eighty five and December of nine also cheating quite a bit teams in the southwest conference kept cheating even a few years later everybody everybody in the League was still under penalty and it seems like the sanctions the instability to rule that SMU would not be allowed to play any games basically not have a team in one thousand nine hundred seven had never happened before and comes in Texas realized that they can go to a new conference and make some more money they decide to jump out in that very quickly results in the core again all the way up to the chairman of the board that the end Sibley felt it had to penalize the idea of the program in order to make something that had never been done before throughout the history of college football there are deep histories of schools trying to find any edge that they can cheating left and right program brand new team so they wanted to take some time are coming to SMU's campus because they wanted to recruit these players to come to their school when the Sibley said that anybody can transfer without penalty that was an opportunity for a lot of the Litas brought to you by ziprecruiter hiring can be painfully slow process when the penalties fainted after giving that announcement it was just a complete shock to everybody and with the within minutes I mean within days other schools this toward the players who did end up transferring you couldn't blame the players you know there was no team for them to play for some guys especially if they're seniors they have dreams of ends SMU contributed to the downfall of their entire conference to you agree with that assessment I do those a lot of an that because it takes years to get players in into the program developed a culture and get used to a system when it's all brand new and you're starting from the ground up against these teams who was the reaction in the Smu community everybody was absolutely stunned nobody nobody thought the inseparably would go through with it the NC double A. Enforcer who com slash lead that's ziprecruiter dot com slash L. E. A. D. ziprecruiter dot com slash lead ziprecruiter the the delusion of the conference okay so SMU was a program that went from national championship contenders to not being allowed to play at all what what was in the nfl they gotta go play somewhere and so they they they spread out everywhere over the country as soon as they could because they needed to find a place to play they were hit with they were SMU bruce when they were conversing with versus of other schools who were winning they realized you know we want to get involved we want to have a winning program how do we get on board with the the same practices halfway all tourists. Coo Dylan Moskowitz needed to hire a director of coffee for his organic coffee company he was having trouble finding qualified applicants so he candidate within the first day see why Ziprecruiter is effective for businesses of all sizes trust Ziprecruiter for free at our web address ziprecruiter DOT COM found his new director of coffee in just a few days with results like that it's no wonder four at five employers who post on Ziprecruiter get a quality did the smart thing in switched to Ziprecruiter Ziprecruiter doesn't depend on candidates finding you it's technology identifies people with the right experience double A.. SMU and the whole college football world anticipate that the death penalty would result in three decades of futility no artist way to hire so Chris did the city between a lot of the schools there because they were all accusing the other schools of cheating and when Arkansas found it could join the SEC the southwest conference get smaller and then the Texas sided not to play any games in one thousand nine hundred eight they would have been allowed I think seven games they all had to be on the road and in that time. SMU's basically building a brand new qualified candidates fast dillon also use ZIPRECRUITER's candidate rating feature to filter his applicants so he could focus on the most relevant ones and that's how we that

Belichick

"Brought to you by Scots urologic beating this summer, but with one more feeding this fall with Scott's turf Bill, winter guard, your grass will be greener stronger and more resilient both now and next spring, it's the perfect time pick up a bag today. And now we're now Denny's off for just focused on Seattle this week is your game plan in Kansas City star. We can't connect on game season. Everything's focused on this game. Because of a glitch, the ticket, the better got back, indicated a payout of eighty. Two thousand six hundred and ten dollars. This guy won eighteen bucks not eighty two thousand twelve year old real here I'm square. My old job is a whole different world man because people here the city, the atmosphere, Madison Square Garden. I think every day when I wake up and I'm play for the Knicks. You may change your perception of any sporting event. About. There's no room to do a president. My gosh, downtown San Francisco, which gone, right? Yes. Lawler may define him. Motion imaging in a turbulent time in American history. Thousands of stories away to be attacked. How is no one, but nightmarish seat of house and death? What is the future of football? Should this. Well, what do outside the lines? I Bob Lee coming up today and NFL better fighting the house or what he says is due him. We begin with that most refined of art forms the Bill Belichick press conference and what it says about his reaction to the report of afraid relationship with Tom Brady the big story and Wednesday in studios, the Bella check Brady in this marriage be saved. There's a lure an attraction to the forbidden and behind the iron curtain, a patriot way in Foxborough and behind those five Super Bowl trophies as the nineteen year relationship between coach and quarterback and the account in a new biography of check that in the words of one close to the situation, Tom Brady would divorce from his coach if he could. And that Brady has had enough of Bella check today behind the podium from which Bella chick has given many perfunctory pronouncements. This was his take. Biography. This thing. 'cause I don't have anything to do with. Focus right now in Detroit, two thousand eighteen football season, like charge of their job on that. And that's as far as that went today, Bill Belichick student of history, maker of history, a compelling figure. Hello. Again, welcome to much cooking show. I have very special guest today. Go Bella chicken, the Cleveland Browns Bill. You're getting ready for Jacksonville. Every time we get the ball, they gets all of your time. The. Specialty late Bill bell. Samec, BB. He being forums, we're getting ready for Cincinnati. We're onto Cincinnati, Cincinnati brand. Why. Why. I'm not a scientist. I'm not an expert football measurements. Would not say that I'm Mona, Lisa veto. Heaven, heaven, maybe some printers bring. Sure. Be lesson. There's a fascination with the most successful coach in NFL history. It is captured and reported in the new book. Bella check in o'conner, wrote it. It took him three years to write report and it just congratulations. Thanks, Bob, magnificent. Do you know how many questions it took today at the press conference to address the Brady issue off your about twenty five nineteen. What's your understanding of the status of that relationship? I think it's functioning now. Bob, they had to get past that that moment it was a very volatile situation. It is amazing. I've said this before that it took eighteen years for this to happen, right? They have the best transactional relationship. All of American teams never had dinner. Never had dinner according to Tom Brady senior, and and that's in my book. But they function and they win. And the transaction is you do for me what I do for you. You've helped me become the greatest football player of all time. And I've helped you become the greatest football coach of all time. So it's been a great relationship in that context. What happened was basically after so many years of being coached relentless, grinding unforgiving way that war, Tom Brady down once Garoppolo gets traded Bill Belichick later decided to cut access to his trainer and life coach and business partner, Alex Guerrero. So that exacerbated the situation. Obviously, the benching of Malcolm Butler didn't help matters. I think what Danny I'm in dole is said to Mike Reese is the way Tom Brady and many others felt on that team about that benching. So there was an impasse in a stalemate in the off season. You take all the way back to his father's career in the military. Actually, where the book begins fascinating. What's the? What's the largest factor in making Bill Belichick the coach that he is, I think studying for three years, the relationships he had with his father start with his father, Steve valid chick who did a wonderful thing of World War Two by befriending an African American naval officer when every white officer on Okinawa during the war walked out whenever that man walked in, but the fundamentals that he taught Bill scouting, and then you go to his high school coach. Same thing talking about also at lower Moore who was a big influence on Bill at Napoli. Highschool didn't say much to the media, ran four plays. It was all about execution and precision. Then you go to prep school? Steve Hirota who had a big influence on him in adjusting week to week. Depending on your opponent who you are facing those three men had a major impact on bills, coaching, philosophy and style in the NFL. There's so much today jest here and you'll conflicted with spy gate. Maybe even deflate right when we get to Wesleyan. And what does he do with his lacrosse teammate. John McVicar now a liver transplant surgeon in California. He googled me because he thought when I left a message for him, there was a practical joke caused me back, tells me the story. He was a novice lacrosse player. A freshman at Wesleyan. Bill was a senior, but it was a very good lacrosse player. He was like a very heady point guard, not fast, had no wheels, but he had a good stick. So he says the John, give me your stick. Let me take it home for night. Brings it back. The next day handed to John McVicar. He realizes that the net is deeper and there's a string loose and Bill says, it's illegal now, but I'm trying to help you cash to catch the ball. That's right. And you're learning the game, so, but here's the thing. If an opponent sees that they're going to point it out to the referee before you hand that stick to the referee. I want you to turn around pull that string. It makes it legal then handed back to the official this from the guy who was there and had that conversation. So is a straight line from there to the assistant coach emptying garbage bags when he was scouting team to see what was left behind. Yeah, I don't think Bill Bob was ever. Taught to cheat Bilas taught to bend the rules gamesmanship and everything is okay up to a certain point. I really don't think his father and his high school prep school and college coaches taught him to break the rules. But back in he did a lot of things in Cleveland. He was stashing healthy players on I r he was doing, but everybody was that was Davis league. It changed in New England when the league put out those memos pre spy gate tank. If you're illegally taping someone from the sideline, stop other teams had been legally filming opponents, but Bill, really and the patriots were the only one after two warnings written warnings from the league to continue doing it. You write a van typically that was palpable in the room when it was time to apologize and built Bob Kraft well received a deacon of the league as it were, but there was a palpable disdain for Bill Belichick was born of his success or what else is his success? His record against some of it is envy and bills. Not the most agreeable guy in the world is, you know. And I talked to someone who has witnessed Bill in settings with other head coaches and executives and owners. And when he stands up and speaks, that person said you can feel almost a loathing in the room. And I think a lot of that really has to do with his record against those people and their belief that there was some black ops tactics along the way used against them that help Bill become. Now, what I believe is the best football coach ever got about thirty seconds the most surprising, personal anecdotal thing you learn about him. Well, just how human he was is with his friends, how engaging he can be. He's a completely different character away from the facility. He's created that one dimensional character for the news conference. A lot of his friends would like to see him as some humanity to that act, but I don't think he's going to do it why. I think he's setting a tone for his entire program in franchise. Bob, I think he's the greatest net taker of information of all. He does not give any information. He wants his players to see him in that setting giving nothing. So when they're asked questions in the locker room, they give nothing as well. We'll never see his like again way the NFL. I would have to think the book is Bella check. It is a work of reporting and perspective in O'Connor, three years, and it shows best of luck with this. Now an in game NFL bet that has stirred controversy keenum's looking over to the left of the side plate receiver stays into the middle. Five twenty out of Tim Patrick and that by doing, oh, my. So inside twenty seconds to play on Sunday. So the Broncos down by two moving. Well, a defeat goal rage against the raiders and then for a period of less than twenty seconds, the Faneuil sportsbook at the Meadowlands in jersey, change the in game odds on the outcome. But there was a glitch it into that glitch wrote a guy from Newark who says he's do more than eighty thousand dollars in Faneuil now says, no. If it Purdham of ESPN Chaka's here to talk about that, the story that sports bettors are just fascinated with. We shouldn't. We invited fan deal to be with us today. They did not respond to our invitation, how the devil did this happen? You broke it out pretty well. There was a glitch in the odds making process. They tried to update the odds with Denver, got it. Feel go position with under twenty seconds to take the lead. They wanted to make the Broncos the favorite minus six hundred favourite. When they inputted the odds, it came up. The Broncos were seven hundred and fifty to one underdog and the savvy better saw the odds and rain up their place in the wager not first time this is happening and it's probably not the last time this happened we we've got a graphic we can put up that illustrates that. Well, what what the spread was? It was going to be just a a modest return on one hundred and ten dollar bet eighteen thirty five was a money line, but actually that went up there and eighty two thousand six hundred and ten dollars. All right. We've learned recently like New Jersey, gambling officials are looking into this now, where does this all? STAN? And what's the company saying? Well, the company says that they have the right to buy their house rules to pay out any Pappa palpable heirs with the correct odd. So they're saying will pay the customer at the minus six hundred observation be however gaming control in New Jersey as a rule in the regulations that says, companies cannot just unilaterally resend a wager. So we've gotta gotta conflict here. That's going to ask the works out. This is a function of in game betting which most people in, you know, out of the me, this is your beat see as the real future. So little of a done here in the US, but it's it's a vast way to expand the industry moment by moment betting. Yeah, absolutely. Up more bets are placed during the games in Europe where this is really taken off than our place before the games. It hasn't quite got to that level of the US, but a lot of people will follow that trajectory as legalize sports betting kind of expands across the US. They also offered did they not fan deal? They offered what three tickets to three New York giant games to try and salve the wound here. Yeah, they wanted to pay the guy five hundred dollars which would have been basically the odds Denver's odds before the drive, which right little over three to one. And there was some negotiations that took place throughout the day even before the gentleman had asked, where can I get some comp tickets to to giants game. So there are some consideration and they tried to make it right with the guy vedic line. He thinks he's out eighty two thousand dollars and he says, he's going to iron attorney and go from there. What does it say about there was just an eight teen second window, and he was the only guy to try and jump on it that quickly. That they caught the air pretty quickly. I mean, obviously, this is an egregious mistake team is getting ready to go. If your goal with ten seconds to play is not seven hundred fifty to one hundred dot for comparison with the patriots down twenty eight to three in the Super Bowl, two thousand's a couple years. They were only at eleven to one underdog. So these lines were way off some books in Nevada. They will go ahead and pay when these lion Air's come off. And then just say, we've refused to take your business anywhere further because you took advantage going of our airs. That doesn't seem to be the case here. Faneuil I, I would love to spend more time discussing that work of art over your right shoulder and explaining to millennials with the thing is on the table behind you. It's called a turntable with a stylus, its final David. Purdham ESPN chalk. Thank you so very much next up. The NBA player who's running literally for his freedom laster good to join me to talk about his political beliefs in how that's positive money. Don't go away. Yep, you guessed it. I'm a speed bump, so I've got one job. I slow you down. So imagine how I feel about Geico who does way more like not only could they save you money on car insurance, but they've been around for over seventy five years, giving people fast and friendly claim service. Ow. Plus they got an empty mobile app that gives you twenty four, seven access. Ow. Just doing my job buddy Geico expect great savings and whole lot more today. The be blocked that is Catherine. The Turkish NBA center who last may made international news as he fled from Indonesia steps ahead. He said of Turkish security forces intent on arresting or harming him in September. Kanter was traded from the o'casey funder to the New York Knicks where his profile and his playing time each increased in his seven NBA season, and I am joined now by his canter welcome. You and I, I spoke was less year. After your epic around the world journey, you felt your running for your life from Turkish security forces. What did you learn from that experience? Well. No fun at all. But I think I'm going to bet a place now America with my loved ones with my fence. So I'm definitely more happier, feel more safer. It's been amazing here, man, obviously. Yeah, I know a constant worry and concern for you though, is, is your father updates on your father's legal status and how he's doing. He's been doing good, but Iran a month ago, the judges come back and say he going to be imprisoned for fifteen years, but it was very sad news, but and we walk with the lawyers in Turkey and they will just trying really hard to just. To extend the time. So now he's going to have his toll with the judge think it was September or October. So he's still out and in still hoping for the best. Certainly as everybody is, who knows you since since we first talked, you've come to New York City to be with the Knicks putting the basketball to the side for a second house. How's moving to New York living out of New York? Has that changed things for you? All may change everything because I went to school in Kentucky, play for Utah. Jazz at Oklahoma City. Now is like New York is a whole different world mad because the people here the city, the atmosphere, Madison Square Garden. I think like for me the most important thing just being with fence out there and obviously they call it the mecca. So that's why just makes me so hyphen every day when I wake up and I'm play for the Knicks. So I think is just gets better better every day, man, I go to time square. Mm, spur almost every day to just go hang out with people. Take features, just have conversation with defense. So it's been awesome experience. -ment they have all sorts of characters taking pictures in Times Square, but they're not charging for these photographs like the Sesame Street characters, judging nobody. My favorite is the nickel. He's crazy, and we point out quickly. We'll supply the video that there is an is almost naked cowboy who plays the Qatar with a hat and has been doing that for years in Times Square. When you came to New York, though you were surrounded by the issue of your political beliefs, what you would endured last summer. It was even what a topic of conversation in the locker room was not. It was very weird apnea was ESPN and all over the news. They were saying, NS, Canada just goes back to Turkey. Then he's going to be in prison for four years. So I walk into the locker room, my team teammates. Well, like look at a missile. Weird. It was a very awkward moment. I was like smiling and laughing. I haven't conversation with them and just ask, finally, are you okay? I'm like, yeah, I'm good. What happened is we just to news. I was like, MSN those dues. Don't worry about event. I'm used to that kind of news, but I think they have now if they have a better understanding submitted complicated, so I need to sit down and talk through them one on one. Then they'll be like, you know what? We got your back, Tim, what you're doing. Have your political beliefs actually, perhaps cost you some money with an endorsement deal. Oh, of course, man. I mean, I was talking to with my agency just like this summer is going to be my eighth season NBA and I'll play for the New York Knicks. Right. So how to ask him you that we'd like to play this. How come you don't have Choubey or you don't have any kind of deal. They will man. We just talk with Nike and they love you. They want to give you contract, but just because of what's happening in Turkey, we cannot give you any contracts actually took national team. Talk tonight, say do not give into contract, but there is there's tons of tons other deals on that that they, they are scared to give me deals. Because if you made a deals, then they're going to shut everything down in a in Turkey. Are you in the process of trying to become a US citizen? Yes, I cannot wait. That's like the one thing I can now wait man. I think two years left. So right now McGrane cardholders. So you have to wait five years to become an American citizen? Well, I mean, if you may American woman, it's only three years. Fest us. I'm not gonna give. We hope you get that citizenship, and we wish the best for your father and it's always enjoy to speak with you went his canter. Thank you for joining us outside the lines. You guys meant always a pleasure. Now, new details on this story yesterday on this program pro football Famer, Eric, Dickerson spoke of his demand backed. He said by twenty other hall of fame signatures on a letter, a demand for health insurance and salaries for hall of famers and failing that these players would boycott future hall of fame inductions well, at least two of the players cited in that letter Kurt Warner and Jerry Rice say they support retired players, but they're not in favor of a boycott Dickerson blamed the miscommunication and his subsequent statement had nine fewer hall of fame names on it. The sporting Dickerson still apologizing, but still advocating John, take full responsibility for their rights and coat lawn. Because, you know, we had so many draft going out and I want I meant to take them off and that was my fault. I'm not that you know, I'm trying to be all the, I'm one person, you know, and then. We want me and few other guys trying to do this. And I'm, you know an, I'll say that I'm sorry about that, but we have the collective. I've talked about fifty to sixty guys so far and the message is still get into guys that said that they will not attend the hall of fame. All right. That was today in speaking of hall of famers. I will. We come back. You're working late when you get into Lert on your smartphone, your blink motion, activated security camera, picked up something suspicious at home. You open your blink out and watch a video clip of someone peering through your kitchen window. You dial nine one one and police role. I mean, isn't the point of having home security to alert you before bad stuff happens not after that's what blink does order your blink cameras now and get fifteen percent off at blinkprotect dot com. Slash score blinkprotect dot com. Slash score MLB doubleheader tonight. Yanks and Red Sox. NOx could possibly clinch the eastern the Rockies and the dodgers separated by game and a half top of the west. Of course, it's all on the ESPN app as sportscenter siege and Kevin quarterbacks talking around the league and how he's supposed big best rivalry. Just one, big, four letter word. That's the qualities. It's on the app at six eastern. Any guy who sites from the movie. My cousin Vinny while deflecting a crisis on the eve of the Super Bowl is a guy worth knowing Bill Belichick is that guy the friendly guy at the -sconsin market and out on that talk at or biking against the wind on milestone road. The guy who also taught a college lacrosse teammate had a skirt, the rules who taught a TV audience, how to make the perfect PB and j. and use raisin bread because that's what his mom did. Yeah, they were spy gate, and there was also tales of having scouts and coaches rummage through opponents, garbage cans. And yet there was deflate gate and a lot of distance there between the coach and his quarterback loads of distance. But as an O'Connor's brilliant, new book illustrates this guy's an every man wins and setbacks in his life. Every man with seven Super Bowl rings. He guards his privacy. He has written history. If you part of patriot nation, you probably compartmentalize rationalized, but you will sing his unmatched praises. If you're part of the anti hoodie nation, Bella trick candy, an easy target. But the unassailable fact is it's likely nobody will ever match his coaching accomplishments and we'll certainly miss him when he's gone and his Bill would save. He were sitting here onto NFL live.

Today that's Geiko Dot Com G. I. CO DOT COM. Hey everybody welcome dishing the rich Eisen show. We are live in Los Angeles California on this Tuesday April the seventh and man. Do we have actual news going on of of to sports trying. Start things up and the conversation about Whether it's the right thing to do or it's not the right thing to do is we have finally. I guess. Hit that portion of April. And we're going to discuss it. Eight four four two full rich is the number to dial here on this ozzy Tuesday program. We've got a lot of football on the brain as always Marshall Fox going to be first up here on this show Twenty minutes in Henry rugs the third where we're just going straight down all of the top Alabama Crimson tide players that That are out there available for this year's draft. We had yesterday Jack Wills on last week we had on this program formerly Alabama jalen hurts. We Jerry Judy. Now we've got Henry Rugs. The third later on today. We're matriculating our way through the top Alabama Crimson tide players available in this year's draft coming up on April the twenty third and and again the NFL has received a lot of grief about. Hey why you're holding draft while you're trying to force teams do the draft from home Can't we just wait a few weeks? I can't tell you the number of times that I've seen that on on twitter. Why are we doing this now? And then when the draft hits and it goes off because all of these teams there's been no more adaptable organism in sports than an NFL team Certainly all we talk about how to adapt after halftime what to do in the third and fourth quarter to try and win a football game. Well now they have to adapt to put on a draft. And why are we doing? And why what's going on? Well when the draft hits and we're all talking about the first and second and third rounds on Thursday and Friday the twenty third and twenty fourth as we expect this all to happen and we're all hoping that the world hasn't fallen completely apart to the point where you the fans still wants it. Where are we talking a lot about it? And I think everybody's going to really enjoy that wormhole certainly in between The first to Second duo of episodes of the new Jordan documentary on ESPN. It's GonNa be a great week for sports fans to try and feel a little bit normal if that's the thing that you're looking for or want but To sports over the last twenty four hours news broke of them starting up. Potentially I one Major League Baseball Jeff Passan of ESPN reporting that the League Major League Baseball and also The Players Association of Gotten together and they're starting to talk about how they could start things up and came up with. I guess the Best Plan and Jeff Passan's reporting on it on. Espn AND HE'LL BE JOINING US. The top of number two to discuss his report that. I guess they're gonNA create their own bubble world in the same way that the NBA has discussed doing this in Las Vegas to start their league up again. Major League Baseball is going to create their own bubble world in the state of Arizona and play in multiple parks in the state Arizona including the home of the Arizona diamondbacks in front of no fans and I guess ten other minor league facilities and stay in their hotels where they'll be quarantined prior to which and the only time that they're out of their hotels to go to and from stadiums and play baseball and I'm assuming the dugouts will have to be the size of football fields to stays at least six feet apart from your next door your your other player or I guess you figure that everybody has been quarantined long enough and they're not sick and they don't have corona virus they don't have covert nineteen and thus they can hang together and be together just like you and your families are are sheltering in place at home. I think what I read is. They're gonNA sit in the stands the first few rows of behind the dug up six six hundred bucks to park and when they go to the mound they'll be six to ten feet apart. There can't be any mound visits or I think they're eliminating mound visits electronic strike zone. Mlb has been actively considering numerous contingency plans it will allow play to commence wants. The public. Health situation has improved to the point that it is safe to do so they discussed ideas of staging games. At ONE LOCATION IS AN OPTION. We have not settled on abject option or developed a detailed plan. And they're basically saying that the report the Jeff Passan as out there as it's just being discussed preliminary are not ready at this time to endorse any particular format for staging games and a lot of the rapidly changing public health situation caused by the corona virus. Again the viruses going to set the time on everybody. We're all desperate for a distraction. I think in return to sports and return to normal and away and I think that's again why the NFL is deciding to do this. Draft and in terms of you know if not now not now when in terms of doing the draft and in terms of Major League Baseball I guess Federal Health Officials are according to Jeff Passan backing this plan and it's not just economic advisers according to passes report. It's the National Institute of Health. Which as you know Dr Fao. She is at the head of that table and HE I. It's it's his sensibilities and word As the ultimate in my household and in my opinion if he says that's something that could be done then. Let's see if it can be done. I guess it just doesn't seem smart right now. It does not but at the time and at the end of May is what we're talking right. Maybe another right. Seven weeks of social distancing. I'm seeing the curve flattening on a lot of beginning to flatten in a lot of places because we are doing the right thing as a populist writ large although there are people standing on line in Wisconsin right now being socially distant as best they can to try and vote which is insane. So there's that and Major League baseball and then how about the report or Dana. White saying that he's hiring he's creating his own university's own bubble community on a private island to fly fighters securing a private island for UFC fights and fights every week tmz putting that out there with Dana White's quotes AFC. Good money. Well they've got money. Yeah but it's hard to not think that this wouldn't be a potential fire fest of fighting. He's got the venue locked up for two months he told. Tmz This venue for two months. And I'm setting up shop here. We're going to be pumping out fights every week so honestly stop if you are this one before private island yes remote private island creating your own infrastructure flying people to and from charter to hold a pop culture event. Look if if roy gets involved at the UFC Reno it's over. I mean Dana serve cheese sandwiches the tents. I'M GONNA start flying them all into the private island in doing international fights from there because I won't be able to get international fires all of them to the US. So I have a private island. My Gosh. Let's hope nobody has to take one for the team. Jon? They're very good. Very good one. That's a good one. Honestly I mean I guess you're GonNa have to get fighters to agree to do that to you. Still have to get fighters who who wants to hop private flight to goto private island and who's going to broadcast it. I have no idea what's the first battle going to be. Robinson crusoe versus Wilson. The volleyball mean is that the first fight Swiss Family Robinson Jeff probst. Who's involved in this one? This one. This one caused me to just go. I Know Dana White is a showman. We've had him on a few times. And that's his job is to sell tickets and be a showman but at some point. I mean you're creating your own private island. You got to set up your own infrastructure your own. I mean we've seen this documentary before the broadcasting's easiest part well I mean I mean. Espn IS GONNA have to go back things. You can fly in and set up like control rooms easy. But they have a satellite go. Yeah that whole system infrastructure ready. Those companies would love to work now. So guess what we're GONNA DO AERIAL AWANI will be on part of your new segment and our three when you hit the story later on create. He's so I mean. We got a full House today. Especially for a little fun Larry. The cable guy will be calling into our program. Get her done get her done. So yeah his new Special from comedy dynamics remained seated is available starting today. How about that for guest list? Marshall Faulk Jeff Passan Henry rugs the third Larry the cable guy an aerial. Halawani for a little bit. You Know Watson giggles later on for your news update at our rolling here on this Tuesday program in the show I I mean well and there's hard knocks news all. Let's get you see that this morning. Is it going to be the team that we all hope for him wanted the Arizona Cardinals? It is not the rams and the chargers of a super size version. What they're calling it bombing you get both teams both teams leagues sources tell. Espn asterisk and then Schefter at the bottom of his tweet is like if there's training. Yeah we'll of course moving into the new stadium right down the street from where we are really hoping it was Arizona. I just hope this job. Jared Goff figured out which way right time right. Yeah Yeah I like that idea too again. Fingers crossman knock on wood. Fingers crossed eight four four to a full riches. The number to dial today reason why we have Marshall Faulk on the show first up it was inspired yesterday by the all decade team. Rosters that hit and the four running backs on that list. One of them was one of the eight unanimous selections to the All Decade Team of the Teens Adrian. Peterson was in Animus. The Shawn McCoy was on that list. But he had the most touchdowns most rushing yards of the show machoism touchdown King Eve marshawn Lynch made the list and then frank ore made the list and when Chris Brockman read it out he goes Frank Gore like you went higher register. You went like sort of surprised. I've had enough of that Frank. Glory you surprised though the Frank or is on this list no no. He's the third leading rusher of all time. And he amassed many of those yards or as you would point out compiled many of those yards. He's a compiler stat compiler Ems many of those yards in the the teens. Now a lot of people are sitting there looking at Rogers is the one as the weak link of that list. Because you WanNa talk about amassing all the stats drew. Brees amassed many of his stats and the teens as well. And he's at the top of the list of pretty much every mark however he did not win a super bowl in that decade. Aaron Rodgers did Russell. Wilson won a super bowl in that decade FLACCO. I hear you so Aaron Rodgers being part of that that was part of that conversation but the Frank Gore of at all on Mike. Let's go to the top of our running back flow. Chart are running back flow chart. We know him. We've worked with him. He's been on this show. He's co-hosted with Susie on this show at Thanksgiving dinner with all of them. Has Indeed Marshall Faulk and you avenue issue okay? You have an issue about Marshall being the one to decide this argument between you and because you think you're gonNA lose this thing. There's no thank I know I know. Frank should be on this list right and you don't think frank should be. I just don't think when Frank Gore gets brought up. I don't think while he's one of the all time greats. Okay Marshall Handle that argument. Did you ever poll question over there? Christopher down okay work on that to Marshall Faulk Jeff Passan Henry rugs the third Larry the Cable Guy Aerial Halawani. And you here on this three hour addition of the rich Eisen show. Don't go anywhere. We're back with the pro football hall of Famer the man who coined the phrase. This is football heaven. That's coming up on the rich Eisen. Show do you own or rent your home. Sure you do and I bet it can be hard work you know what's easy bundling policies with GEICO GEICO makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go TO GEICO DOT COM. Get a quote and see how much you could save. It's gyco easy visit. Geico DOT COM. Today that's GEICO DOT COM G. I. C. O. DOT COM welcome back to the rich Eisen. Show welcome back here Marshall faulk going to be calling in in a matter of moments I think we did workshop while we were on break Today's poll question. If I'm not mistaken we just gotTA figure out based on the fact that Dana White is getting his own private island or he's acquired his own property he has it for two months by the way. So guess what if you were looking to get this private island in in. May It's all booked but just wait just built so far when we were already to do it. Just wait. Just wait. Just wait. Just wait I guess by June fifteenth July Fifteenth. If you're looking to book that private island when Khabib gang pull out pull up stakes just you go there and you could use the you have season for structure right and wrong. This is such unchartered. You you too. Can you too can also use the same tent that Holly Home used. That's a selling point right honestly with Gregg Cheese Sandwich. Yes Connor McGregor. He didn't have the CONOR McGregor Cheese Sandwich. Box Lunch here it is. That's a good fantasy. They look I mean. How is this the fighting? Fire Fest this whole thing. Other than the fact that Dana White ask his credit is that Billy McFarland guy. A little actress has the same. He's one of my good friends. He's known his uncle. Marshall in my household is a pro football hall of Famer. Anne is Marshall. Faulk here and the rich. How are you Marshall we're doing? We're just talking about this plan about g about this. Dana White's getting his own private island and flying fighters there to have fights. Is that and do you know about this place. Marshall you know a lot of places no idea no. I have not heard about it okay. Wow that's interesting. It's not the place where Zeke went last summer. No no no not not not the same place Interesting I mean. It's just like interesting because it looks like he's GonNa fly people there and we're GONNA do fights it'll be a lot of fun and just check it out. It's a weekly. He's going to do weekly fights their Marshall he's going to do. Here's my question. Here's the question Sir. If someone catches colden they're just. Can they shoot him? Well that's interesting. You ask about liability issues on this front. There's a lot of labor laws that potentially these. These are things that he's going through right now but he I think he is He is somebody that wants to get up and running and he wants to keep his business going and he also knows that there's a captive audience which is part of the reason why. I believe we've got the NFL draft later on this month You know that we're GONNA WITH THAT. That there is a need and a desire for a lot of sports fans to try and feel normal and get that out there and you know and try and figure out how you can get back to normal. Marshall. I mean you'd you'd sit back and watch a fight if you could right. Oh yeah without a doubt. No No. Don't get me wrong I have we. There's a there is a I think more than ever we are. We sit back and we would. We would like when the when the when when they were came when NBC and CBS and Fox were peonies billions for the NFL contract or they pay for basketball or baseball or NASCAR. We say oh my God. That's crazy money now. We see what the cost of live. Entertainment really is like we see what it's worth and what it means so it It is it is necessary and and we are. We are thirsty for it and I think the players Because the community and team so then they have their thirsty for Marshall. Faulk here on the rich. Eisen show Art Marshall. Let's let's get into a little bit of what I wanted to hit with you. the NFL All Time I guess All decade team Of the teens came out yesterday. What did you think of the running? Back Group that got named from Adrian Peterson Shawn McCoy. Marshawn Lynch and Frank Gore. What did you think of that? deserving deserving Bridget Great Whoop. Guy's man And and They Yeah they they. I think they got that right. They gotta write gotTa write. I'm talking guys. Put up numbers not not only numbers the longevity if you just look at the longevity and and and and how long they played and teams that they care reading and and what they what they have meant to the game so Just a a really really good and I think that I think that you know each one of those guys will eventually wear gold jacket you think. Okay La Shawn Mccoy a pro football hall of Famer Marshall. Yeah wiped out. Here's the here's the thing. Here's the thing rich and and I just WANNA I wanNA clarify their like are we are we and and and when we say that we usually think the first thing the first thing we think as the first thing we think is are we talking. I Bala we're talking Willie eventually get in. I think he will eventually get in if it's numbers and what he's meant to the. Game Leshan is You know and you gotta think about some of the things that he has done. He's done on teams. That didn't have much around at times so I think that. I think Sean would be the one person that you could ask that question about. And I'm GonNa say that He might be the one that only want to ask about but the rest of the guys without a doubt that they were getting as well. I mean and that's why I'm I'm you know I mentioned McCoy specifically when you said you think all four of them are gonNA get a jacket. I think. Eat the stretch. He's the stretch I mean. Isn't that the the running plays like the most Marshall there you go. Yeah you just you are. Hey you know my God. You went away a long time. I don't shine choose more Marshall you know what I mean I know I know I know I know now. How long has it been since you and Chris Brockman got into it? When was the last time that you guys have had some sort of football conversation that you get back you get into it at over the last time? He was probably here probably last time. You sure okay Mo- Marsh. Now Chris does not believe Franco Hall of Famer and I think he does speak a lot of people. Do you think Frank Gore. I guess you've already said that. Why do you think Franco pro-football famer durability availability and You know the numbers. Don't lie it is what it is you know you can you can say. Oh my God. He played this long. He played this long. He's supposed to have those numbers. Well just tell me who played that long. I mean it's not like he's playing he's not. It's not like the kicker he's eventually going to get. There is not like he's a quarterback you just continues to play. He's GonNa Throw for Nah he. He's carrying the ball and remember remember what era he started off playing in. He started off playing in an era when it was single. Back him only Toting the ball. That was that was Frank Gore Downhill Frank Gore with the lead and he's shipping his game into this past happy but he he's still get done. I mean that's I. Yes so doubt that. No question well. How do you want to take this Chris? Because I know you've been very pal and I'd like you said rich. I do think I speak for a lot of people when it comes to frank or his one quote unquote elite season was in two thousand six. He's only rush for over fifteen hundred yards. One time one season of ten rushing touchdowns. He's never led the League in a single category not a single category. He had a little pro bowl. Stretch there in the middle of his career. But it's like. Do you think you should be rewarded for not getting hurt like Craig? Baggio isn't one of the greatest players of all time. He might be the ultimate baseball compiler but he just never got injured. Played Twenty years and made the hall of fame does out making fame career. Unfortunately Brockman baseball got a contact sport. Drink Gore played a position that requires you to get hit. Get tackled by guys sometimes. Double Your size get up an asset a ball some more. So when you don't get hurt and we are readily available and you play on teams with Frank Gore. Probably has had Lisa Mona help from the quarterback position out of anybody who ever played the position as long as he's played. Think about it. You can't name a quarterback that's going sniff. The hall of fame or let alone even came close to winning a playoff game or even making it to the Super Bowl that Frank Gore play with but yet he continues to be durable. It doesn't matter where you put. It doesn't matter doesn't matter and guess what guess what else he does. Every time you put him out games. They hate fringe. You have to compete. You have to compete with somebody in order to like win. Job Definitely does he. Beat the guy out and that includes the dynamic Shawn McCoy that is true. Marshall Faulk here on the rich and you like that quarterback argument. Well you know what again to I do have to say however I fully agree with you Marshall and it is true that baseball isn't the contact. Sport is football but be GIO did lead the league every year and hit by pitches right. He did get hit a lot and he did get back Marshall now let's talk about current running backs in the current status of this market. And you're very well versed in it again. You are front and Center in counseling. Zeke Elliott last year. It just seems to me We saw with Derrick. Henry did last year and he felt And this may have been also to do with the fact that corona viruses ravaging our country. And maybe just wanted to get paid right now. And he signs his tender Todd Gurley signing one year Six million For the Matt for you know if he if he gets everything For his new contract. What is going on with this market? Marshall what's happening here. I'm so you you look at you. Look at San Francisco and what they did and usually the trend is the team that are in the Super Bowl That that's the trend San Francisco. You look at their back sale. You look at what Kansas City had in their backfield. You look at the money that was spent and and that's the trend back. What you feel like you have to do but usually that's the case you know you running back by committee and It's that's that's what happens if you don't if you don't deny yourself worthy of of the of the of of of the finances and the paycheck If you're not a tap out guy if you're not a guy that wants to share the backfield thing you'll get paid handsomely and the guys back That are are getting paid. They are full-service. Gosh I'm telling you right now. It is not going to be a bargain deal when Christian. Mccaffrey back up the truck to not going to be that kind of conversation not going to be about who else to share in the backfield weapon is just not because he's not a guy taken down off he's not taking place off is maximizing the opportunity to make the team better and that's what you have to do that's how you have to play the game so And then obviously you've mentioned Melvin Gordon. And what he had to do so What what's your council two running backs in today's game by you you. You have to demand your time on the field. This whole schering about zero. Preserving time is going to get you. The part trying contracts part-time play part time pay. That's how it is. Melvin Gordon Split Time with Austin and Justin Jackson now. He finds himself in Denver once again. He's just he's town. God wants that becomes your Mo. And that's how you play you played. That's just how it is man you you you develop that you showed them you like the rest and that's what you need and guess what that's the kind of back you are but if you a full service back and that's how you play you played. Its rich this league is When you when you you dog and you go out there and you demand it. They don't give it to you. They allow you and your prove that you can. You can carry the workload and you can handle it. They're gonNA give it to you. They're not gonNA pull you off the field gonNA notice the difference of the game and how the defense react when you are in the game compared to when you are and and it happened. Acog EARLY LAST YEAR. You know they they started. They started platoon in the guys were in and they they tried to get stuff done without it actually the you before when they made it to the Super Bowl you bring you bring your future Anderson off you know off the street and you make it to the Super Bowl retired you know not a hundred percent and it's like Whoa hold up wait. Wow we did that well. Let's see let's see where we're going. Now maybe there was some other things that we don't know going on behind the scene but once you want to team can see vision without you and there's A. There's a huge paycheck. They're they're going to try to live that vision without you because they don't WanNa have money tied up into a position that if you get injured other than quarterback that if you get injured the season could possibly go downhill fat Marshall. Faulk here on the rich Eisen show. I mean you mentioned girly right there and you said maybe there's some things going on that we don't know about. We had Sean mcvay on yesterday. He I mean we needed oxygen on the high road that he took When I asked him was girly hurt or not and Was girly hurt or not. This is one of the Great Bermuda Triangle. Questions of the up there with What'd marshawn knock at the ball? And why was Malcolm Butler active? Even though he played one special team snap and a super bowl that they lost to the eagles I mean what is going on. What happened with girly that you can share with US Marshall I have no let me let me make sure I say this before because I don't WanNa you know I have no inside source I didn't know anything about anything but I know this rich. Here's what I know in the last game and the very last game of the season that'd be in the Super Bowl There is no way if I was not hurt that they would have kept me off that field trying to intimidate. I literally I literally Played in the Super Bowl with broken. Ribs Mathoma. In my in my in my in my five You know Y- I mean if there's a game that you risk whatever it is score it's the Super Bowl you put it on the line you just go down and you go down the list and think about ROIC experts of what people has done. I mean you remember. Te'o coming back in a super bowl. I think what was it? I think right rod team Rodway with his knee point at super bowl man. Just just think about what people have done to play in that game. So are you. Are you saying then that he was hurt? That's why he wasn't out there or e tapped his helmet. I'm just saying he. There's no helmet tappan. Eat Listen Todd. Gurley had lived for that that he's been playing football to be in that position. He had to not be himself in order to to tonight. The out this well he had to pass a physical being Atlanta and they signed that deal. Monday night. So you know that or Tuesday morning. I'd exact time we're pen was put the paper so it looks like Atlanta's getting a healthy running back one would think right or you just don't know still Like I say we will find out an I I. I'm GONNA say that. I hope I will. I wanted nothing but the exercise. I WANNA TALK TO RETURN. Tatas defied when when he hurt his knee and Georgia. We had no idea how he was going to bounce back right. And he sat out the first part of the season his rookie year and came back and brush that dominated and and it was just. It was just amazing to watch him. And that's what we WANNA see. We Wanna see that Todd Gurley. I WanNa see him have the career that he was on pace to. Have you know I would've liked to have seen that happen with the rams but we know things happen and sometimes you have to take your talent elsewhere and todd? I just want him to. I want him to be successful last one not not not only interview. I've last one for you. Marshall Okay You know you know you're there right next to peyton manning You know that system you know areas you know what areas likes to do with quarterbacks you know the whole thing Brady with areas and Tampa equals. What in your estimation that it. It's going to be amazing comments going to and here's what Bruce Does. Bruce's going to allow Tom to do what he wants to do. And he's just going to make it better. T most coaches get only coach. Dare System. Bruce. Arians can coach anything and anyone and make it better so whatever. Tom Likes Bruce's going to learn that and say Tom. Here's his what I think about what you WanNa do and think about the guy who's going to be in his ears. The Guy who's played at a high level as well and left which is just a great marriage. Meant that I like. I like what they did from that standpoint. And I'm I'm I'm happy for Brady. That he got a guy like that. Know how to deal with Just players in general but definitely definitely veterans NAM Brusett. He's a player's coach. So you think in a way that and do you think Brady had that in New England or not enough of it in New England and that he's going to thrive with that being. Hey We know what you like. This is exactly how we're going to do it like you like it. But in a way that I'm I'm now seeing to help improve it and thus it'll be more collaborative than than Brady perhaps is used to. Would you agree with that marshawn? Let's say I'M GONNA I'm GonNa say that Bruce is bruce is like minded on offense to Bella. Chesney is on defense. You know how flexible Belichick is to. We're going to do whatever we need to do to win on defense. Gosh Bruce on offense love it. So Bruce is going to whatever it is. He's going to make them. Epa Theory Adjustments. It's not just about this invalid system. This is what we do know. It's about winning games. Marshall Boils down to you. The Man Marshall. Everybody healthy and your family. I trust everybody. Good good man. Everybody's good yeah love it. Thank goodness everybody healthy. But you know those three kids in that household it's It's lively lively. It's lively Marshall Google. It's particularly lively Marsha particularly particularly a lively and my kids. My kids are all note writers. They write notes to me in Susan. They shove it under the door When when Susan I are like on the phone or something to give us a heads up you know and Taylor. You haven't been around for about six months. She is particularly vocal And an any any great letter writer. A great letter writer. A great note taker Nice. Yeah so we're all working together Love you Marshall Monsieur. Let's let's let's connect obviously When we can okay but all right cool catch. That's my man. That's my friend. My Buddy Love Marshall. Faulk Marshall has away. He's Rainman of football okay. No doubt we drop the football toothpicks on the floor. He knows how many are on the floor and he sees it in a way that we don't he's got a beautiful mind for football what he said right there. Hey the way Bella. Check views defense where it's like one week. We're GONNA play this way next week. We're going to play that way because it's the matchup that we need to do. In order to win airings is GONNA be that same way on on offense with the exception of a this week. We're going to run at forty times with Jonas Gray and then the next week we're GONNA cut Jones Gray like instead it's going to be. We're going to throw it forty times this week and we'll throw it fifty the next and if we have to run it will run it but I think Brady. That's his point and think about that. One eight four four two zero four rich phone calls and so much more That's next on. The rich is oh by the way there was something. I said on twitter that That got a little people a little upset. I'll hit that next.

Show eight four four zero four. Which is the number to dial Joe from the United Kingdom is calling in what's up. Let's take this call from the UK at Trunk Call if you will. What'S UP JOE? How're you doing speak with you about? He's good there. I hope era. I hoped Boris Johnson getting. Well soon sir. I don't know what your politics are. It doesn't matter. I hope the man gets pulled through a very soon. Yeah exactly the enemy Yeah so I wasn't to show yesterday on Youtube I can do that and I have a comment. I'm adult fun and from the first team overly UKIAH say for them and it's been a tough journey but I'm looking forward to getting better but I knew my tea when I have but pita cutting should they trade though Our BUSTA the last year. That made it all the way already. Yeah that's that's crazy. So how are you dolphins fan and up? Let me see it for a Glasgow okay. So how you dolphins fan and Glasgow. Yes so basically what happened? Was I love your the first time? But they would. I knew you kid with against the giants okay My friend was written for the giants and I said well go for the dolphins and so about that. Haven't made the old way over here automating. Hey Look I don't think the dolphins are going to give all that up. I think that they love to and I think to a is healthy and I think they're going go to three and get to a personally. That's what I think and I thank you for the call and and Keep keep listening to this show. I love it we have. We've had international listeners. For a very long time since podcast began back in two thousand eleven. That's why the NFL goes abroad. I'll go to. I'll go to to the game you for the giants root for the dolphins years later he's calling into a United States base sports talk radio simulcast. That's one of the. Nfl goes abroad right there. You heard that I don't i. Peter said if he said again he would give up all of their first round picks this year and one next year to move up from five to one if they think Joe Borrow. Is that much better than anybody else on their draft board. Let's just put it that way. I've total that's four. Total picks all three this year. He'd go from five to one and then the other two first rounders this year and one of the two that they have next year. They still have a first round next year. And they'd have the quarterback of the future that they believe is the man that's his point. If you think on your board he is not much better than the other guys and he is that much better than who you might have next year or you think anybody else in the last couple years. What do you think this player is so special? He is transformative. And you believe that in your Scouting Department believes that and you've looked them in the eye the combine and on and on tape and you saw yet sixty touchdowns last year and he's pointing to his ring finger and he's got the swag and he wants to maybe not go to Cincinnati waiting for that phone call. He would be flipping out if you take him and put him in the AFC east and he is the next Tom Brady. Because that's the way he looks mechanically and he does. Have that. Swag WANNA put the next Tom Brady in the AFC east and dominate just like what the Patriots did for twenty years. That's worth the four first. Rounders is what Peter says. He said that yesterday and then I went online yesterday to read more of his work. Because I just love what Peter Rights you know what he said. The column was it was like. Here's my idea of what the dolphins should offer borrow. But the bengals shouldn't accept it. That's what he said. Wow borrow could be that special hour to Jeff.

"Thank you for listening to this podcast. One production now available on Apple podcasts podcast one spotify and anywhere else you get your podcasts. Is the rich Eisen show rise. Here's the rich Eisen show is never enough. At work I played all day everyday. I am thrilled to have here on the rich Eisen show a man who's in the outstanding new movie, a bridge of spies, the life and I saw last Friday to enthusiastic thumbs up, and he's phoning in from New York. City right now two time. Academy Award winner. Tom Hanks here on the rich Eisen show. How are you? Who Books this show. Is it who is it WHO's on Whitesnake? WHO's on later? VK? No, no, no, that's that's a different. Who you haven't on no none of those it's it's going to be. It's going to be the death. It's the folks of DEF Leppard. Oh my Lord. How Yeah! That's in studio later on trade for a fistfight between them and Brett Sager. To, see, yeah, they might throw down together, but you know Brett will still probably protect that right pitching. Hand Tom Well. He might get a call up. He Bolt. You say as he did. He did our things with you. Tom Everything Good super-duper excellent. I appreciate you calling into the show fan, big fan, big fan first time caller. Thanks for taking my call I appreciate the question about Thursday night. Football players really hate it. You know what some of them do, but then today. They don't because they have half a weekend off. Shit, yes, they got to go. Do things on a weekend that they normally can't do like. Maybe even trick or treating with their kids now next week I understand it's all the NFL channel. No, no more CBS. We're not sharing it with CBS anymore Tom. We're just not gonNA for just the next six games. Is CBS bringing back a CSI? Programming space. Do believe I do believe. Mom Premieres next week. I think it might be America's number. One new old comedy. They'll. They'll figure out a way to call it number one some categories. Once. They've got number one everything dudes. There's there's people there's people in offices and buildings dedicated to come up with those vary sorts of mine crunching the numbers as we speak those those superlative right now now we had Dennis Miller on the show during during the summer, and he told a story that you wrap up your emails with a with a tribute to Ken Stabler Sir. Is that true? This is correct? I grew up in Oakland California during the heyday of the Oakland, raiders. If you were to puncture my veins. They would bleed silver and black. and there is a there was a actually dentist told me about this fabulous story, which has since and went up and looked up. It was a profile on on on Ken the Snake Stabler. Why the crafty left handed! quarterback. and he was, he was asked what he thought of the quote by Jack London that said I would, I would rather die a fiery comet, Ten ben survivors, icy, planet, or something like that. And What do you think that what what do you think that means? Kennedy said both Rowdy Baby. So I think you know if you're gonNA for life and love and and your your your pursuits of. Of Art and creation I think I think, Kenny Stabler had had. The advice, we should all take. Just when in doubt, throw deep. Was a mad bomber. You know we had you know. He had worn wells and cliff branch. And he would, he would come back into he'd. He'd let fly. And that that I'd always struck me as kind of like and also Mr Mr. Stabler was a legend in so many other ways, yes. There was nothing wrong with studying the playbook by the by the jukebox life by the light of the Jukebox is how he was learning the playbook. Yeah, and did you spend time in the black hole that you go to games? I was not of the economic level that could afford such things NFL football games but when on those occasions when the Coliseum would sell out. And we could watch like the greatest the greatest games on the planet Earth where the Oakland raiders versus the Kansas City chiefs and the Len Dawson era. What happened that was that was that was the jets vs sharks it was. It was, it was It was the Russian front. It was two forces at just hated each other, so much and Kansas, city would come in, and that those beautiful red uniforms you know with the Arrowhead and they would look so gleaming white face masks on their helmets. These are the things that are important to thirteen year old. And we would greet them with the with the silver and black, and we seem to always beat them two out of three games, but then the third game was always the one that went to the super, bowl and seen, but then but Kenny stab, but changed all that this dead rotate babies did Tom Hanks joining me here on the rich Eisen show, what about the prospect of the raiders, no longer being in Oakland or even the State of California crushing. It makes you lose faith with all the social contract that professional football supposedly profess to have with it so with its fan base We've experiences, look. I'm old enough to remember when the somehow the Baltimore Colts packed up and moved undercover of the night. I was very much aware of when art modell packed up the old Cleveland Browns and move them to Baltimore in the wink of an eye. The idea that the Oakland raiders would not be the Oakland raiders, but would be. Where would they go? What would it becomes? It's possible San Antonio Tom. It's possible, Saint Louis maybe the rams moved to La, and it's entirely possible that you may hear about the Saint Louis Raiders of San Antonio Raiders. I'm giving up and I'm just going straight to the CF L.. Root for the Ottawa rough riders. Rough riders, but I'm just going to go to Canada for my football. Colonist said you have been to games together. We went to the Grey Cup in Regina. China. Say twice. Is this thing on? Law Yes. Where are you from sir? we went to the Grey Cup in which we saw the Hamilton Tiger cats. Yes, take on actually the home team the Green as they're called the Regina rough riders. Scott, yes! Yes? I have never been called her on in my life now. Well, because they the fabulous thing about Canadian football fans is they are not intimidated by the coal they they actually built extra bleachers for in order to pack them in up there bleachers. They were metal bleachers and I think everybody stood To see green the scheduling fans because they have marine uniforms, so they have an Arrow pointing up sky of blue and the air, pointing down into fancy of green, which is great, and they have a two fisted beer-drinking policy. Is that you go, and you get two beers and you hold one in each hand. Here's the thing they are not of the same brand. You'll have Molson in one hand. LABATT's fifty fifty and the other, and they have been there more leaded up there right now. I think. I think. I think they pack a punch. I think they do and they're and they might be tall boys that they had, but you know you have a gloved hand around a cold beer, and it is totally freezing. You can actually see the expression on the players faces about about halfway through the second quarter. They just have that kind of a habit kind of look. I, it's it's too cold to play Tom Hanks joining me here on the rich Eisen show bridge of spies and a theater near you go see it. It's fantastic before I. Let you go. Colin has told the story on this show. You've told her on Letterman. I've watched Games football games with my dad but I've never really played the game that the two of you. which is you see a cut away of coach and wonder who that coach would? What coach would be like as a step as a daughter? Yeah, they all. They all have that kind of look either fear them or ridiculed. And and and it worked.

Pleased to say that I've known him for years, and now he's got a new book out called. My life behind the spiral. He is Steve. Young here on the rich Eisen show. HOW ARE YOU Steve? Rich hasn't been that many years. I mean it's like it has been turn. I turned fifty five you the day, my kids, you know 'cause I did start a little late in my walk into the room and they had all these posters up. Hey, all the. The happy like come on, it's been that long man you know, kill now so I do I do when I was a book written by somebody who I know personally and know you know it. It's not like you know. We've been new each other's weddings whatever we've. We've crossed paths I I go to the I go to the index I go to the ease. I see. Well you know I see Lavelle Edwards understand that. From Byu. Elway Tori APPS I see. espy awards that was the Uncut Steve. Is that I I'm not in the book, but the espy awards is an entry that that was the one that really cut deep for me personally I. Don't know what I don't understand why they to be honest with you. Know what I tried to control, everything lost control the index. Okay, all right, yeah! Years. Let's see what would be the first I mean. When did you start working in Europe that old so? I got there in ninety six to two thousand late late. It's the final chapters of book so I mean obviously The impact wasn't immediate. I guess rich. But one of the. Interesting later. Interestingly enough, though Steve. You definitely don't know this song. Reveal it, but. The day that you finally got past the the cowboys in the NFC championship game and the old candlestick park and you ran around the stadium. You remember that you hold the ball up your. You took that victory lap like a fool right? No, no, no well. There was a young television reporter from Redding California KRC are the ABC affiliate standing there with a camera, no shooting it and You nearly took me out that deck. That's awesome because I did not know that you never told me that. And that was your close in you. Didn't I took out every cameraman? Reporter, and honestly it was like a it was a wake behind me like a boat. People just. Getting just going down like watching a bowling pins. Go Down I'm sorry about that. But but I think in fans will remember. Certainly niner fans will remember I remember just what that really meant to you and and Gary plummer. You told them at that Super Bowl. Take the monkey off my back. I mean that was deep. Heart felt correct. Steve Yeah. I think I always regretted the monkey. My back, saying, because I think every wrecking thought that was joe being my random was really just maybe the cowboys you know it's like there was maybe there's so many different weights that did came off in the Super Bowl. It's hard to figure out where we were. Each one was, but I kinda regret that because I think it kind of sent the wrong message that there was this and. I turned it into by then I turned into a real positive. Like look, there's a great opportunity here and it just it I. I didn't feel the way I had felt like few years earlier when I really was burden like every through I every time I threw a ball people like. Through it better than that or every interceptions like well. Joe Never did that and every loss joining the loss of game like no, he did I promise he'd lost a game. To go back and show that you know.

I also noticed a Paul as you were coming out here to sit in our green room that there was some gridlock right there with and Ron. Darling come out of here. There's one. And I suddenly I felt like seven year old I was like Hey Mickey. It doesn't go away, right. Nineteen eighty eight. When did my two DADS? My favorite moment of the whole time was Willie. mays came on, and because we have wrote something that I promised. I forgot what the store Oh the story was. My uncle had promised me for Mickey Mantle was GONNA come to my birthday party something Oh. Really it never showed up. Right might what he's promised William as I, come to my birthday party as a kid, and he didn't show up, but then years later he produced. Willie, from my kid and so we're all craze like Oh. My God is Willie. Little known fact does letting you may know this, but this intrigue me Willie wore a lovely soaked shirt embroidered. It says not as initials it says say hey, say hey, come on! You can have your own their own. Your so is that referring to embroidering yourself in the second person what does that? That's my name is like this is sort of a number. I say yeah I with those the coolest. That is I mean. Look if you can do it, you can pull it off if I was count. ripken would have shirts that say ironman on them embroidered. Didn't take off. It he might true. Let's go chase him down in the parking lot. He said he suffered some sort of fall off a bike. The ironman he. Banged up, he fought through it. He interviewed like a champ. De by fillet two thousand days. biking. Guy He. Is he only knows one speed can only do. Conflicts three thousand days in a row this the pressure to stop. I'm here with Paul Reiser on the rich Eisen show off Amazon's new series red oaks. You can get every last one of those episodes in stream it for as long as you can. Go here. The little the little running that looks I know what you're doing, but it looks like just somebody took your wallet and they go. Hey, hey, hey, Hey! Is One of I need the reason. Why is I run in my suit? At the NFL? Scouting combine every year and I need to run as if somebody has taken my wallet I need a little bit more motivation, Madman. It looks like Jon Hamm. Just more. Concerned yes, and if I was more of a miserable human being like don draper. Yes, I, would work, but now that's the idea behind. It does look very mad. Manage not very cool, so were you? You were in Yankee Stadium to. See me I did not. I went into. Do some publicity for Red Oaks and. The game got managed to. Get some tickets right and it was a great game all, but for the Yankees losing pathetically. That was bad. I mean just three hits. Just A. Watching it, and there's a Rod. Like was one point. Two runners on young guys on I'm going. Come on, you could just you can redeem yourself entirely. Forever I know I know this was America's sweetheart campaign of season. FLA It's a tough sell. WAS UPSET ABOUT WHY I decided to turn off. Any sort of disappointment in rod or dislike. When he started hitting the ball very well I decided. I am a crazy man. And I fully admit that I will ignore everything. That's it does make everything. But Yeah Ben would have been nice I think it was the bottom. Six would have been a good time, I'm I'm here with Paul Reiser on the rich. Eisen show when you did mad about you was a favourite cameo of anybody. That's just got on that show. That show that that was one of the great luxuries of and the great treasures of that. We had all our idols. Mel Brooks certainly comes to mind, but we had and Mel. Brooks and call right Caesar. Actually one more I think they would consecutive weeks. and Mel was I was on Melrose on the office and someone's Sid Caesar online field. When I don't think it's nineteen fifty-eight anybody has said hold on L. Sits on. It was it was an urgency that I. It was Kinda historic, but we had you know music. We had mark. Maguire was we remember more and more. What was that like? When mark came on this show that was pretty good of of hitting all the home run. Yeah, he was cool when he was very very sweet and very funny. He was better at doing that than I would have been at his. It has a job if you. If you were in the batter's box, you would not have performed as well as mark did acting. That's. Safety Zone he excelled better. Idol was the last time you were in A. Major League Baseball. And you know what who's to say. I couldn't get the call now. Maybe just wait until I. Hit my peak. You could be it could be. I'm sitting. On that, but yeah, that was that was a great fun. And then, of course we have TV all our ledge. We had Carroll O'Connor Cow Burnett. We had Yoko Ono. No other t know the combination say. She was funny. She was funny. It was you made Yoko funny. You know what we do what we can. Do. Meaning Mel Brooks for me. That would be. That would be the end. All that would be just about. It because he is. The man, he's a genius. He's a genius and and. It happened because we needed some of the play, my uncle, we needed somebody older and funny, and we said well Br. Then we realized Mel Brooks was on the same studio up so Helen. Hunt and I walked over ten unannounced, knocked on his door, and he was well okay and We kissed the ring I don't even mean figurative we. Got Down we kiss the ring. He's an. Off both of you, it's pathetic and he said let me check, and maybe I can, and then he came on and I think four or five episodes all. It was such a treat and. There was a great moment and the first night he was on I show. He did, and the audience was packed and a lot of industry people came. Never got to see Mel and in the front row center was was his wife the late wonderful and Bancroft and she was sitting there just like a school. In Omaha, just watching him and everyone's. Look, at that face. We just do a so in love. And I went over to sail. Oda Her I said you having a good time. And she said regarding her husband of thirty five years. She said I never knew he was so funny. Okay so we're helping everybody. Is. UNBELIEVABLE BEAUTIFUL MOMENT! What a story! A Story! Brockman! Ask Him a question. Fair. Movies of all time is Beverly Hills Cop. Okay, that was one of your first movies early on the height of Eddie Murphy's power. What was it like being in that movie working with? Eddie like how much of it was scripted. I mean I've read that most of the. Kind of Improv yeah. I think any kind of does whatever he wants to do wherever he is. But I I was friends with Eddie from the comedy clubs, so it was really it was very easy and natural, so we've got to play and. But I learned valuable there. When you would somebody just great, just stand there, and it'll be funny around you. You don't have to be funny. We did in Beverly Hills cop to where I stand there and he's just doing his thing. Thrown lines at me and people. Go you so funny when I didn't do anything? He was making the funny, but you invade. Remember was in the shot so when standing next to a great just. Stand there. Yeah, it reminds me of the time where Michael Jordan scores, fifty five Madison Square Garden, and he passed the ball to Bill Wennington, wide open underneath the beat the Knicks and Winnington could say that yeah Jordan combined onto. Huge win here in Madison. Square. Eddie and I did very well together. Power say the. Hold also a very good. The tailpipe Paul Reiser, your upcoming dates. That could be found on Paul.

REShow: Jeff Passan. Hour 2 (06-16-20)

"Thank you for listening to this podcast wine production now available on Apple. PODCASTS podcast one spotify and anywhere else you get your podcasts. Rep is is the rich Eisen show immediately. League baseball is in the process exactly as we talk. AB- screwing this whole thing. Download and podcast at richeisenshow DOT com. Baseball more boring and unproductive beckon. Earlier on the show twelve I'm PGA tour winner. Justin liners still to come ESPN MLB insider Jeff Passan, ESPN studio host Keith, Olbermann plus comedian, Bill Burr and now. You're rich is. Our number two shown on the air here on NBC. And siriusxm Channel to Eleven Jeff Passan of ESPN is going to be joining shortly to give us his two cents on exactly what is going on? Between Baseball and its players association because right now, what appears to be is a PR battle between both sides that the players are absolutely dominating and the problem with a PR battle. is that. It doesn't lead to anything. Except, hopefully, hopefully only thing it leads superior battles lead to is both sides getting together in a room which has to happen. problem with getting both players, both sides and room. is the players have already said they're done negotiating. Not a problem. One side says they're done. That's a major wrong you. Don and problem I mean all the players are like just tell us when they're over. It I'm telling you the whole idea of just tell us when and where and an honest day's pay for an honest day's work is exactly what we all understand as human beings who go to work everyday. Differences. Most people just don't make, but Major League. Baseball players make. So we'll get the latest on all that. Is it possible that these two sides can get together because you know? If. It does appear what our Buddy John Hayman. WHO's been covering this MLB network as he was tweeting out this morning? It what it does appear. Is that baseball like well? We don't want to unilaterally impose season now because it opens us up to agreements for Major League Baseball that we didn't negotiate in good faith. In. The last thing we want to do is inviting grievance. An have that. Scuttle a season, so we've got to come to a negotiated settlement well great. The negotiated settlement was back in March. If you would just basically said we understand, it's GONNA, cost us a what a billion five billion, six billion seven to pay the players this year for an eighty game season. If that's what it's GONNA cost. Then that's what it is I mean. It seems like they're a certain number part like. They'd agree to a billion. Five, billion, seven, billion, that extra three hundred million dollars can't be made up down the road. I know I'm throwing out now. It's five cents in in a in a seat cushion, but we are talking about a sport that makes an absolute poop ton of money. And again rob Manfred said yes last week that he was one hundred percent certain. That there was a sport that would be because he had the ability to. Put the backstop on and say I'm unilaterally imposing this. Let's play ball and so the players basically say we're done talking. Tell us one wear, and now he's like he's not. He's not confident anymore. Jeff Passan will be joining Keith Olbermann after him to discuss this whole subject. You know we. We haven't hit. What Roger Goodell said last night. Do you have that? Mike del Tufo. You knew my Greenberg would ask him about Colin. KAEPERNICK's role. In all of this and whether is job needs to be restored in order for the NFL to truly prove to everyone that the inspired change. Concept that they are. championing right now. If that really is what they mean. And We had Steven Jackson on here called Karma. That kapernick needed is jobs back. You've heard from Carlos. Hyde you've heard from many players in the NFL give Cabernet nick his job back. This is what Roger Goodell saying that subject last night. If he wants to resume his career in the NFL, that obviously is going to take a team to make that decision, but I welcome that support a club making net decision and encourage them to do that if If his efforts are not on the field, but continuing to work in this space, we welcome to that to that table and to be able to help us guide US and help us make better decisions about the kinds of things need to be done in communities the I. Don't know if a cabinet is going to be up for an advisory role with the NFL. But It's time for calling cabinet to get a job in the NFL. Is it I? mean if he. And again win bend time well I know it's been time. It's been long since time. But in two thousand, sixteen seventeen. And it's a different time now. If NFL teams are concerned how fans would react. They'd react much better now than they did back in two, thousand, sixteen, two, thousand seventeen. There's gotta be some owners in the NFL. Who Don't care how the fans are gonNA react that they know this is the right thing to do and also a way to win football games. In Two, thousand, twenty, the third string quarterback in the NFL I. Guarantee You this. I'll say guarantee. A jet Fan. I'll say guarantee even though we have no idea what's going on. This will with covid nineteen. But I'll say I. Guarantee You. The third string quarterback and twenty twenty national football league season. That appears is going to be played. The third string quarterback is gonNA play a lot. Of first and second string quarterbacks are going to test positive for corona virus at some point. Resuming others are going to do it at tend to agree with you all right and we had the doctor Allen Sills of the chief medical officer of the NFL on this show. I'm making a football case. As if it needs to be made. But. I'm going to make that. Because, this can't be viewed as a token gesture cabinet doesn't want it. The team that wants to hire him won't want that either. So in this day and age we ask doctrine sales chief medical officer in the NFL. Is this going to be sort of like the concussion protocol? There's going to be a covert protocol. Somebody needs to test clear and negative for certain amount of time before he's allowed back in in the building, and he said it'd be something similar that. So you better have an excellent plan to win football games, third string quarterback, and guess what could take some time Thurston. quarterback with hot hand might actually stick around. Coup, better Capri. Right. We have not heard from him at all. We haven't really heard from him. In the last three years. Aside from that Nike commercial while well also his what what happened this past? November, which is the total debacle with him, try out right. And him saying. I'm ready to play. Now's atop the commissioner has basically said the words, black lives matter, and said the words we were wrong. And saying I'm courage team to sign Colin Kaepernick. You've got if you require still the political cover. And also a sense in our world. And a growing understanding that kneeling. Is a sign of peaceful protest that was not at the time and still is not anti military. It is calling attention to something that clearly. As, this recent events in the city of Atlanta. At a Wendy's drive-thru showed clearly needs to be addressed. And fixed and of attention call to. Baker Mayfield says he's taking any bill. O'Brien says he's taking A. I I. I'd be stunned if most of the NFL did take a knee. In Week one of the twenty twenty season. It's time. P CHARLESETTA team reached out to him. To find out you know. I don't know what because I guess. He interviewed. Colin Cameron who I mean. What do you want to know? I mean probably what a team would want to know and any business has a right to know like Khan. What will be your plan? We just want to know. We just need to be ready because there will be a section of our of our fan base and a section of our business. That will be. affected. And we just want to know like what are you? What do you got in your mind because we want you? It's time for you have a job. We, need you? I'll just for instance. It was a very moving video now people will say. He's a white man white billionaire. You know what is what does it mean really? But steeper, shoddy owner the Ravens who I adore. Juice seek it out a video talking about how world events in life events have affected him, and how he wants to be an ally and be a partner. You WanNa talk about the importance with third string quarterback. And Copper Knicks not that I'm just saying that there are more jobs of greater importance Kaepernick shouldn't be signed as a third string quarterback and wouldn't WANNA be third string quarterback, but now right now. That's a viable position on an NFL roster. This year. Big Time probably. A fourth I teams are going to keep four four ravens quarterback room. Could you imagine with all due respect to you? Trace mcsorley? Could you imagine Lamar Jackson? Rg Three Colin Kaepernick? At least you've got? Okay at least you've got. A quarterback that will be able to run your system. Regardless of WHO's playing it. And You WanNa talk about you never know. A jetski nearly changed the trajectory of the twenty twenty season. Right Okay I. Mean Cam. Newton is still out here as well you want to talk about your standpoint of football worked out with Odell. Beckham. Yeah right here in Los Angeles Yeah. Man Oh man. Another football story I WANNA hit here. Just to again. Certainly when? You tune into a show. I want to say like this because I think we're unlike any other agreed. Because of who we are, but you know similar sensibility and somebody who my. First guest in the third hour knows as well as anybody else. Our Buddy Dan Patrick. You know. We try to have and I'll. I'll I'll talk for. Because I've had conversations with Dan about this. We try to talk a nuance way that not everything has to be. This far point of view or this point of you will talk about our opinions, and we can agree to disagree and have a nuance conversation. Not many people in our industry do that. And just a fresh reminder of when. Stories happen. There are opinions and you can raise your hand and say this is my opinion and stand by it, but not everything is totally. Right. Everything's totally wrong. That's the setup for this. Do you remember? When Carl Shanahan was hired by the San Francisco Forty niners. Do you remember that? Day what are the forty niners do and they're just? They're just churning over coaches just going one after another after another. HARBAUGH turns into Tomasulo terms chip Kelly. What are they doing there? They don't know what the hell they're doing their. The front offices. They're just turning it over I. have no idea what they're doing. They're they're they're. They're hiring. Kyle Shanahan great name sure his dad's great. Dad's a possible fame head coach. Boy You want to hire. Somebody just blew it in the Super Bowl. Just blew it. Bata Tony Threes. Just. What the hell does. John Lynch pro football famer. Great Great I believe is and he will be. An excellent announcer for Fox. What the Hell Zeno about front, Office. was you know. Well? Kyle. Shanahan just became the I as I read. I just read. On twitter yesterday Cam Inman. Who covers the forty niners when he's not? Furloughed by newspaper. Kyle Shanahan is the first San Francisco forty nine or head coach to receive a contract extension. Sense security gets the last head coach the forty niners. Who's got a contract extension? From the Organization Mariuchi. I. was. That's how long how it has been. Wow, yeah as you know. Jim Harbaugh took the team the Super Bowl. They get one. Now Tom Tomasulo one and done. I mean chip Kelly one and done. But the last person to break this streak, though is got to be Kyle Shanahan because he doesn't Outta Call Place The super. What are the forty niners? One Year ago at this time. One year ago at this time. As we are speaking in Del. tufo either typing somebody in the world. I know what you're doing. Sorry, but one whole back then. But one year ago at this time. The. Forty niners had just taken. Nick Bosa second overall Jimmy Garoppolo was coming off a knee injury. You know Richard Sherman. Been One year removed from getting played because he did his own deal, right? Now look at him. So. People have opinions. And I know it's sometimes it. They're very recency biased. Like, it was for Shannon. Now who wants who had one, and if he was a free agent right now, who would take him? Damn near thirty. One other teams. I know you're. Can we run down the list Oh, please? Dan There thirty one other teams now I'm not saying they would. Yeah. They would. There'd be a lot of teams that would consider you know. What do we want to make this move or not? If Shannon Kyle Shanahan was a free agent. At the time the crap. That the forty niners took for hiring this guy. And now he is cutting edge. Now, he is now. You say this is recency bias to based on what we saw this past year. I don't think so I think what's being said about him. Now is exactly what he's going to be for a very long time. And doesn't John Lynch six year deal, too? So you have John Lynch n coach. This guy has made. Talk about job security that you don't normally see in this league GM coach six year contracts. This and I. I firmly believe this team is built to last for a long time. It's not going to be one of those things. That is a flash in the PAN. Net Amazing I'm saying this now and I believe it. I believe it to my core one year ago at this time. That's what the forty niners were and on top of it. Remember they were started to ano a forty niners for real. For no for real. Still going though. Six and are they for real, but are they for real who they played? Then they wax Araj Irs. On a Sunday night flex game with Aaron Rodgers and the packers coming off a bye waxed them. They were the last undefeated team of the year after the ravens knocked the. Patriots. Ranks of the on beat by the way on Sunday night football all of that. Dominated the playoffs six minutes from the Super Bowl Championship. What was the off season narrative? Let's go get Tom Brady also I know they'll get Tom Brady. Oh, I. Know that and Lynch came on here and and I. Don't WanNa use the word admitted because that is, that is infused, he did he did say that they did for a moment. Kick the tires, but decided to stick with Garoppolo. Which I think is the smart play. Especially realize now. I WANNA know it's. GotTa look down the road. You got to win for ten more years. You can't just use this opportunity well. We damn near one with Garoppolo last year. Let's try and use this window of opportunity with Brady right now and then two years be stuck with starting from scratch again when Garoppolo cost twenty five million a year, which is dirt cheap. It was the right move. No matter even if Tampa wins a super bowl in the next couple of years. It's still the right move in my mind. And so even with all. The narrative. Was this off season two Shanahan's. You still can't call the place in the civil still. Even though Chris Jones meaty great play to knock a ball down on, what was a wide open wide open? WHO's covering kindle is somebody who had no business covering Kennel. I forget off the top of my head. Yes, you're right about that. It was somebody who was beaten defensive. LINEMAN EH eaten fifteen ways to Sunday. And Garoppolo had a an open Emmanuel Sanders and none of us in my mind had to do with Shanahan. Botching the play call the last six minutes. There's a lot of pointing the fingers, but good for Jed York to see through all that garbage. He's GonNa be there a longtime and so as McVeigh right, and so is our our our friend who sits there and drafts like he's James Bond in bogery commercial. Cliff Kingsbury and then and then. The Dean the Dean who acts like he's five years old, and Pete Carroll I love that Division Man Love the NFC West love it. Let's take a break and talk about what we don't love. The crap going on with Baseball Jeff Passan with the latest. We're going to have a season or not. Oh I mentioned Tom Brady and Tampa. Happened on if we have the let's hold on. Hold on, okay, so Tom Brady appeared in a for the first time and the new ones in the buckner. Weeded out pictures of Tom and Hold onto that one. Please hold that one. We'll hit that after Jeff passan knocking. We'll hit that a after. Jeff passing on NBC. Pirate ships if we can if we can get that to our our The rest of our crew. To turn that around as they said I'd love it. Yeah, not great And then we'll take phone calls as well Jeff Passan's on hold, but will wait to to get him on in the next. Couple of minutes through the get the NBC s an audience, all ero- row for him. Man. Could you imagine i? Mean again I I can't imagine two thousand eleven lockout covering the lockout for NFL network when it just like. Hey, everybody. Who are the top free agents? Who the top free agents at running back in the NFL this year if there's an NFL season, and we don't know if they're going to be free agents until they actually hammer out a new collective bargaining agreement to decide whether free agency for their years of a cruel is hit or not, and people at home gone what? Are you doing. The NBA is saying. We're coming back. The players got together over the weekend. Even those who said they didn't feel like they had a voice or that they shouldn't go and play they.

He is a senior MLB writer for ESPN and one of the best reporters on the market. Our friend Jeff Passan back here on the rich Eisen Show Jeffrey. How are you today? Richard I am well yourself time hanging in there where things stand right now middle of the day the day after baseball players said that the commissioner should tell them where, and when and all he says I'm not confident anymore. Jeff. Yeah it. Was You know a few weeks ago rich. An executive has been around for a while a paraphrasing him here said to me in order for this thing to live needs to I i. And I, think yesterday when Bamford did such a stark about-face from where he was five days earlier when he said unequivocally, we're playing. It's one hundred percent, and then saying I'm not competent. We're GONNA play. I think that was baseball dying momentarily and it is. From everything I hear from everything I see from everything, I think from the perspective of just pure straight up logic. it has to happen. There has to be a season at this point, because the alternative of no season is so catastrophic to the future of the sport that I just don't think the people who are in charge would take it there because they you know. We. We have this canceled culture. Right part of cancel. Culture is not. Canceling Yourself. In baseball would be inflicting cancellation on itself by having no season. Okay. I got a few places. I can go after that Water Baseball Explained to me the that concept of why baseball had to die I to live. What Y Y in the world would that be a rational thought process for somebody to tell you? When this pandemic calls for nothing but trying to live. For the fans, what is? Totally reasonable question and I think there's actually a very good answer to it. Okay, the the conversation we were having was about the breaking the norms It was about the the leaking of letters it was about rob Manfred, acting in very unwrap, Manfred like ways and his thought was. This thing is so screwed up right now. We need to get back to some. Some sort of stasis we need to get back to a place where everybody is so beaten down by this that you just hit the reset button and that's what happened yesterday I think. The reset button got hit. I think the sides have to now, and and this is I. Don't know that it needed to come to a point where one side or the other. you know hit sale blog dot org that was Major League Baseball yesterday it was a big bag of fail and I think after that happened the owners need to look at the state of the game where they are ultimately the shepherds, because they are the ones who own these franchises for ten twenty thirty fifty years of time and players on average their careers about three and a half four years, and as as much as the players association as much as the players are the lifeblood of any sport. I also think that the the amount of influence that they have is finite. It depends upon the trajectory of their careers and the idea that over the course of these relatively short careers they can shape the future of baseball. inexorably is is just a false premise. It then it then falls on the owners to be those people who are putting it in the right direction. Well. Why aren't they who? WHO's the hard? WHO's the hardliner? That's got manfred zero unless Manfred the hardliner here, telling the owners. I got this on a labor. Lawyer who give me names are the ones that are saying. Let's not play. You know I think I think I think it's a little bit of both I think rob, Manfred has. Four twenty five years now, actually been extremely good at his job for the purposes of what Major League Baseball owners want, and they wanted to take back power after the major. League Baseball Players Association held it for the near thirty years, and I think he's done a good job of that, but there comes a point at which rich the pendulum just swings too far in the opposite direction and I think that is what has happened here. You've had players last decade and a half two decades. Not complacent, not get comfortable, but get to the point where the these little tiny things that they gave up started to add up, and you've seen dealings, not legally in bad faith, not by the letter of the law, but certainly by the spirit of it by Major. League Baseball. You've seen the you know. The emergence of Sabermetrics, more or less crush the free agent market for players who are thirty years at older, and you've seen service time manipulation in case Kris Bryant who's a day short. Of A year of free agency earlier than he would have otherwise, and and you see these these things that in a vacuum, individually player by player are small, but collectively have shifted the tide of the sports so much in favor of the owners that the players are sitting there saying Oh, we gotta do is find an idea. Stick with it show unanimity, and there's great strengthen that and I think they have actually proven that of the last two months by sticking with the idea that we want to get paid our. We want to get the full paraded share. We're not going to take pay cuts. You do not privatize games and SOCIALIZE LOSSES AND WE'RE NOT GONNA. Let you do that. That and it puts them in a position where yesterday rob Manfred put his foot in his mouth, and and really I think calcified in the public does notion that when players are saying you tell us when you tell us where a very simple and powerful message, and then the commissioner is saying well. We're actually not going to implement the season that we have been considering doing and instead we majors shut this whole thing down i. mean the the optics of that as Manfred himself said yesterday are disastrous, and this was the disaster falling on Major League Baseball in one fell swoop Jeff Passan here on the rich Eisen. Show southern. What led Manfred to have that reversal? WH, why? Why did he? If! He's been saying this whole time. in this negotiation hammer that I can institute the. We're going to play baseball. I can institute something Why, why did he change? The track. Who told him to change the track? What what what circumstances changed to make him change that that that approach Jeff visit agreements. Doubling. Yeah, yeah. I think left alcohol I think that. I. Look at it mathematically rich Let's say that the players so here's here's the I. WanNa take step back here just to get the whole picture Rob Manfred per the march twenty six agreement, the parties can set the schedule for the season at the beginning of the month we were told Carl ravaging myself. about the league's willingness or desire to set a shorter schedule, which was in line with the idea that there are a number of powerful owners out there who WanNa play a few games as possible because NLP says that it's going to lose money when it plays games. so so this this guillotine of forty eight or fifty game schedule hungover baseball to the point where? The MLB, PA just got tired of the League repackaging a very similar offer, three different times and saying hey, we're improving improving. When in reality it wasn't getting anywhere close to the full pro rated share that they wanted so the EPA said you know what go ahead set. The season will come and play. Just tell us when just tell us where and when that happened. Rob Manfred said well. If I set the season at a short schedule, then the duty that I have to play. Play the fullest amount of gain in a schedule as per that March, twenty six agreement is going to look extremely fishy, because our last offer to the players for seventy two games, and if over the the matter of you know three days, you go from seventy two to forty eight. It's like Are you really trying to play the fullest possible now? It's true rich that there is a a caveat to this play the fullest scheduled possible, and that caveat includes health and safety. Safety concerns I caveat include economic ability, but in the end if it was a short season, the NFL OF EPA was prepared to file a grievance that the delete did not uphold Studi to play the fullest season possible, and if you look at that grievance, it would probably be for somewhere in the neighborhood of a billion dollars, and if you look at it from baseball's perspective, even if the Union has only twenty five percent chance of winning that grievance, you still have to value that. That grievance at two hundred fifty million dollars right that that's just the way that the math works, and in the idea of having that two hundred fifty million dollar liability right there, let alone the possibility of the billion dollars on top of that is just too much I think for the owners to stomach at this point. And when they got their bluff called the the reaction from the League was to be Okay, well, you guys. Shutdown conversations about reaching negotiated agreements auto season. Why should we talk with you, guys? Why should we do anything if you're not willing to talk, the problem is that ran into the brick wall of we'll play anywhere and time, and in the power of that very simple message from the players I think boxed, and they'll be in and rob Manfred inside of that box, said some things that were just optically miserable. Oh boy just passing of ESPN year on the richeisenshow Bollywood. optically miserable it was. It was a great band. optically miserable was Acoustic. So all righty then. What's the? Let's Lyle Lovett's Lyle Lovett stage. Yes, optically miserable. Together So, what's the? How much money difference is there? Between Baseball's last offer on how much grand total dollars that they were going to give to the players on a pro rata basis and what the players? What's the difference is four hundred million bucks five hundred million bucks we're. Where are we here? I mean how for for you you share it over thirty teams and just get this damn thing done and move on and say you know what here's what's happened. We we understand after all this time we understand, and then just eat it eat the P. R. of it, and then just soak in the ratings. What what about that? So Richly? We? We can look two different ways. The first way is that MLB's last offer Max out about one point five billion dollars in cash to players If you take that over a pro rated basis, that's about sixty four. Four games the MLB as last offer was for eighty nine full games at pro rata about two and a quarter billion dollars, so we're talking to seven hundred fifty million dollars gap just in cash out right? I don't think that's the right way to look at it all right the right way to look at it is if MLB is claiming and this I have no way of verifying this the the. Does not leave his troop, but and I'll be as claiming that. It's GonNa. Lose six hundred forty thousand dollars per game played. If you take six hundred forty thousand dollars times twenty nine different games of difference between the eighty nine that the PA Watson the sixty that and I'll be willing to play time fifteen games day. The Grand Total is two hundred, seventy, eight, million, four hundred thousand dollars. That's within ten million bucks team right there, and that is a bridgeable gap and one of the reasons that I have confidence that when it's all said and done this thing's probably GonNa. End Up in the seventy is sixty five seventy five game range players, getting paid their full paraded share expanded playoffs in an actual season that is far more representative than forty eight or fifty inches motive. What's the players role in all this? Jeff in terms of? Blame, because we're we're you know we're hearing a lot? From the players calling out Manford You heard also utilise. Today give again. As you pointed out I pointed out to. The players have a much more relatable argument. Tell us one wear also honest day's pay for an honest day's work. It may be much more well compensated than anybody else's work, but everybody can understand you work you get paid. That's it and it's a much more understandable, and then in light of Rob Manfred also saying. Earlier this year, referring to the Commissioner's trophy, a trophy and his name as a piece of metal, and I understand that that that will be taken in various contexts, but he did say those words that he comes across his. Covert pointing out that he he's a a a sub-standard guardian of the game. This whole thing about like covert shows you should place aside Labor lawyer. You should be the Guardian here. Let's be the garden here, but one of the players role in bringing this brink. I, let's put it this way I think when it's all said and done the de Maurel. Right here is with the players, but I also wish that the players from the start would have gone to mld and said we're in the middle of a pandemic right now you know we had no idea that on top of that there was going to be You know the social unrest that there's been and just this country feeling like it's in absolutely terrible place, but pandemic alone. Let's just get baseball back on the field. People need people want. Let's let's find a commonplace the problem is that commonplace. Commonplace was shift never going to happen until it all fell apart because you see the offers that MLB has has put out there I mean I. Won you know thirty percent cut appropriate, a second one, twenty five percent, third, one twenty percent, and with number of games going down rich, you know they turn out to be very similar offers, and it's like okay. Are you really moving toward this place to get back on the field? Is that really what you're trying to do now? The the first offer from the Players Association for one hundred fourteen games and a schedule that stretching into potentially December. was that was a little outlandish, but the last one for eighty nine games. A little too late for that, but it wasn't entirely unreasonable. The problem is they have just wasted so much time and where they are now. Rich is where they should have been two months ago. No. Baseball like literally right now we should have based. That is. That is that is not a hot take. That is stone cold facts that they screwed up badly, and they need to dig themselves out of their own screw ups and get this thing done as soon as humanly possible to rescue the damage that they have done to their sport so now. Jeff in the glass last thing for you. The glass half full optimistic person me. Season the future I see in the future I. Follow you at Jeff Passan. Stuff on ESPN DOT COM. There's a link. It's Jeff Passan's deep dive on how both sides came together and made the season happen after all and baseball is back. What date? Do I. Read about an who's that person in your deep dive where you said that person called man for that person called Tony, Clark of the players association God everybody together. Who is that person? And what date does it happen Jeff Passan? I think there are two different tracks can go down. I think if everybody recognizes the the horror show that baseball unleashed on its fan base yesterday that they get something done and the next seventy two hours, but that's a that's a really optimistic perspective. SOMEBO-, somebody who's involved in the negotiation last night. So I think this gets done in ten days and and I think the the way that looks is the players association after the letter that they received last night from Dan Halen. The deputy commissioner comes back and says okay. You know what if you want to have negotiated settlement? Let's do it at say eighty, two or eighty four games, and Come back and say no. We're going to do it at sixty five games, and then it's just a little bit more back and forth until they get to that that happy medium I mean they should just go there right now, but I think the players also recognize. They've got hand. They do and you don't want to overplay it right, but when you when you have hand, you don't want to fritter it away either so because there is an advantage in this situation right now, The you know. The PA right now does not want to be the team with the one goal advantage in a soccer game that's pressing ahead late and gives up a break, and and someone scores a breakaway tying goal like you don't want to be the team that does that, so they need to be judicious and I think if you dishes. Thing last a little bit longer than it probably shifts, so, but there are they so they're talking right now or somebody need to get these people other now now I think I think after yesterday. They're gonNa Talk I. Think I think Mld I. If you look at what Rod. Manfred said yesterday he made mention of paying the players four parameters. First Time you publicly acknowledged even that possibility and and he said so in the context, perhaps of doing so over a shortened season, but cats out of the bag man you know at this point. The players are not taking less than full per. Per Radha and if you are are loath to institute a season, because the potential damages that could come from grievance. Then you just got gotta swallow hard and say we're GONNA. Do this for the sport and they're going to be plenty of places where we can get that money back. There's a collective bargaining agreement up, and December twenty or December first two thousand twenty one the next year. When we have no idea, fans are going to be in the stands, so we're going to have to have the same conversations and know I'm not even GonNa call this taken the L. But but. Deal with it today understand that in a year of bad losses they're probably going to be even worse and and get the Damn Sport back on the field like that is your goal. That's not your goal. That is your imperative. That is your duty. You are the people who are running sport. Run the Damn, sport. Jeffey the math. Thanks as always. We'll get you back on again soon.

San Clemente California home of I. Believe Richard Nixon. What's going on area doing? Thank, you Ritchie. Yes, it is couple. Quick points number one. I think baseball you know when I was a kid. It was a national sports now. It's a regional thing I, think they? They're blowing a a great opportunity to. Put themselves out in front. In reengaging resuming the season. because you know, they have to be very careful because I. don't know how many more my kids don't watch it. so I think that's an issue secondly. The players do have the leverage right now, but they have to be careful. I work in union environments for big point of my career. And I think they make the battles I think they could lose warrior. The unionism careful, Dwayne but they all got to get together and and I, appreciate the call, I mean, but a-. How embarrassing to say, we're playing one hundred percent. It's my rule. I am the commissioner I can have. The Authority were doing it and then five days later I'm not confident anymore. What changed between then, and now what change between then, and now is baseball players coming up with the clearcut? Thoroughly understandable concept of. She tell us where we're sick and tired of this stuff. This let us know. Let us know because I gotTa tell. My wife and kids. You're coming with, or we're staying put, but I've gotta go, and this is how we're gonNA. Handle me. Come and go in and I'm going to be tested this much. Are we all okay? Honestly ten days take ten days. No, no, this is not your normal collective bargaining agreement negotiation. I don't know if you're aware there's some call a pandemic on top of a depression. Figure it out I don't know if I could I. Don't know I'm still outraged. I'm taking my glasses and putting them on and taking them off like once every fifteen sites. There's anybody out there.

But Caruso CSI. He put the he put the glasses on. To make a point. You take them off I, just I just go on and off. Sometimes they take a look to see who's on the phone lines.

Olbermann is coming on and about seven minutes time and I think he's. Based on knowing Ko and seeing what is twitter feed is GonNa Ether, the Commissioner of the sport and and and we will see what it all means when when it comes down to it, I appreciate the call Nick.

When everybody's afraid, the best way to deal with it is coming together. It's certainly seems a lot bigger, than, anything we've seen. In my lifetime, and the combination of the protests and looting, and the pandemic, all these things combined together to make for really uncertain times, and when people are uncertain about their future. That's why people rebel. Martin Luther King said, riding is the voice of the unheard. The only surprise is that it's taken. This long capita didn't even bring the focus to himself. You know he just happened to be taking a knee and somebody caught him with a Vo Kim. What would you have done in a moment at that time? If he were your player, would you? How would you handle that but Harlem yeah absolutely? If you were president, how would you improve race relations a hug a few people have you know walk out there listening you know. Take. Advice wouldn't think I had all the units this piece you wrote? Your white people were the ones that need to change. This is probably controversial I would imagine he gets a blowback or something like that people I was calling them out as racist, which wasn't doing in order for things to change Dan. People need to take measures and understand. Be Very aware about what's going. Going on with them, and how people are living their lives, a lot of people don't seem to have much to look forward to right now. What do you think we should be looking forward to? As a nation, I mean look. There's no better time ever to start a business right now. Because all businesses are effectively going into a recent, and so there's a lot of advantages and with the protests, and the riots gives us just wanting clean a hope.

And so, you know, because prince likes to jam afterwards. We'll prince just went to go listen to the musicians. And so it's prince his assistant myself, and I see prince lean over to his assistant. And then all of a sudden assistant leans over to me and says, I don't know why do this. What does prince wants you to come back and have pasta and pizza? I was like. Okay.

You like why am I Princess at five o'clock in the morning? It was truly an amazing relationship that not only myself, but other people had with them. I'm just glad that it was pizza and pasta wasn't like a game of telephone Princess. Then he prince wants you to come back to the hotel and have pasta and pizza. That's all came to. That is fantastic.

And I ran out of money after my junior year. So I left after my junior year always wanted to go back. Right. I had every intention on going back before my children went to college. My daughter graduated from university of San Diego this past may and this past fall. My son started his his freshman year. And I was like, you know, what at my alma mater.

They currently stand. Chris Brockman that people can vote on right now on our app yet Thursday night tonight. Green Bay Seattle who needs to win more Green Bay seventy three percent. I just disagree. I disagree. Our next guest future pro football, Famer, great, Wisconsin, badger longtime Cleveland Brown, one of our favorites. At Joe Thomas Twenty-three on Twitter, and he is hooking up with the Polaris ranger to celebrate military veterans kicking off a fundraising initiative to benefit veterans called heroes hunt. We'll find all with Joe Thomas. How are you? Joe? I'm doing great rich. Thanks for having me on how come on, man. I I always will have you on your anytime guests as they say, what do you think of what the Cleveland Browns are up to right now? Joseph. What do you think? Well, it'll definitely be an interesting off season as we say that a lot about the Browns. But I think for Brown fans like myself the future couldn't be brighter. When you've got a young franchise quarterback. We haven't Baker Mayfield. You've got the best young passer in the league with Myles Garrett. You got one of the best young quarterbacks league with dens award. There's gonna be a lot of coaches that are going to be lining up to show up in Cleveland and interview for that job. Well, I mean unless Greg Williams just gets it without an interview because that's what he says. He usually gets right. You. Of course. And this might be really as a head coach these showed pretty well. So far they played their best game season last week. Baker mayfield. Only miss three passes to go with his three touchdown passes. So the team playing well for you can't argue with the results. What do you? What would you say about tonight's game? You just heard the poll question who needs it? More Packer Seahawks. What do you think? Joe? Honestly, I think the Packers do they're really in dire. Need the win because their expectations were a lot higher going into the season. And I think the ship starts to sink in the turmoil gets a little bit too tough for Mike McCarthy if they're not able to win this game. And as as a player that's been in that situation a long time where you start getting more and more about the future of your coach. It becomes something. That's almost more difficult than insurmountable to overcome. And I think that's going to be the storyline going forward. If they're not able to win this game. Do you think there is something going on with our in Rogers and Mike McCarthy, it certainly seems like it's the most passive aggressive relationship in the NFL to me. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, you hear Erin sand things during the week kind of Finley veiled a little bit taken shots that Mike McCarthy, and and sort of his coaching style. And I think the problem is, you know, when you've been together with somebody so long you get a little bit of ornery towards each other. When things are going the way you expected, and maybe Aaron it's starting to think I wish we were doing things a little bit more. Like, I think we should. And it's got a little right there, especially being four four and one like the are right now. Okay. Who's the best team in the league? You think Joe Joe Thomas, what do you think? Well, it's hard for me to argue with the chiefs. I mean, they're so explosive right now on offense. But I can't wait to watch them on Monday night football because what a great test going against the Rams and a little bit of unusual circumstances being the game was supposed to be in Mexico. Now, it's going to be played in LA. But I wouldn't I wouldn't count against the chiefs right now. Okay. What about the saints? What do you think about them? I like to think to put them number two actually right behind the chiefs. I think their defense is really solid. But to me, even though I love drew Brees. I think Patrick Mahomes the way that offense is the way that they can beat you. So many different ways in the way, Patrick Mahomes and kind of get outside the pocket and move. I give them just a little bit of an advantage over where the saints are right now. Joe Thomas here on the rich Eisen show. What I'm sure you saw the video and if not we can put up on the screen describe for you Steelers teammates Levy on bell rummaging through his belongings in the locker room mere moments after Levy on bell. It was announced that he wasn't coming back. I mean just a day after that happens, and they're going through his stuff, even if it was ingest. I mean, what you think of that? Joe? I think it was a terrible look, and I've been on the Steelers teammates side a little bit more than probably people. I feel that you know, what Levy on belt. Did I think it's hurting himself giving up fourteen million this year in hopes that you're gonna make more than that next year? So I was kind of on on the teammates side a little bit. But the bad, look, you know, why would you ever go through somebody's stuff? Like that. Even though if he doesn't want it. I mean, that's still stuff that's personally area. And if anybody in locker wants sympathy, they're not gonna get very much right now being that you're just going to go. Take dude stuff that just seems wrong. Yeah. Even if they were just joking about it. And then did put it in a box, and then send it back to him. It's it it kind of gives a glimpse in my mind of what Mike Tomlin's trying to hold together and does to the tune of six to one. It's unbelievable. Well, that's a good point. I mean, maybe Mike Tomlin should be a lot more credit than it is right now for being able to put that roster together. And they're playing some great football. I mean, they might be the best team in the right now when you look at how well they've been playing defense and way their offense is something. So give a lot of credit because it seems like they got a lot of interesting folks in the locker room and just kinda makes my skin crawl a little bit thinking that they would just go through somebody personal stuff. Even if it was a joke. All right. Tell me what what you're doing to gather with the palatis ranger. What is heroes haunt Joe? Is a great program. It's developed celebrating veterans and raise awareness and funding for this. Awesome place called leak hunting in mount preserve which is out in Pennsylvania. I got a chance to go out there and spend the day with some veterans, and it's it's offering veterans of place for them in their families to heal by using hunting fishing, outdoor recreation and Lee is aiming to raise one hundred thousand dollars. So that they can expand on them all which is like the really cool lodging and meeting area where all these veterans they come in with their different wounds in their injuries, and they get together and they break bread. They they spend time together they get that team feel that they had when they were in the military. And now is they're trying to come back to civilian life and reintegrate. So it's a great thing that leaks doing and a great thing that Polaris is doing trying to help raise that money for that expansion, and how can anybody take part in this sort of thing? So. Yeah. So the first thing you should do is go to leak preserve dot org. That's L E K preserve dot org. That will give you an idea of how cool leak is. And all the great things that they're doing for veterans all the hundreds of veterans that lives are being changed for the better at leak, and then that will also give you an opportunity to cook on different links and see where you can go and donate and make a difference for this great organization, and then you're still doing the Tomahawk show on LeBron's platform on interrupted right? You Andrew Hawkins when you've got an EMMY award winning and Oscar nominated podcast like the Tomahawks doesn't go away. It just keeps getting bigger. We actually had to awesome guests on this week. That were a lot of fun. Melvin Ingram from the chargers. The most underrated outside linebacker in the league. And then we had our good friend and Tomahawk fan ERC Weddell. What a great personality that guy is. Although he did shave his beard which made me mad. Yeah. He did shave his beard and first of all news to me. They give out Emmys. Oscar's to podcasts because where where we're are nominations back in the day. That's number one. I like it though, Joe better podcast all about that. Rarified air. Like, you know, what Joe you're right podcast better is what is is is the message right there. Correct. But the the news that just hit of Eric wells team. It looks with Joe flacco and Lamar Jackson not able to practice on this Thursday that the Baltimore Ravens coming off of their bye week this very week taking on the Baltimore Ravens are taking on the Bengals at home and a huge game that your former teammate one of the million quarterbacks that you protected in Cleveland RG three is going to get an opportunity here. I wonder what you think of that. Joe? You know, what I think they're just throwing smoke show up there right there? It's just a smoke screen. It's the Bill Belichick. He'd rather have nobody practice and make the opponent wonder who the quarterback is rather than get out on that field and try to get better. So who is that gonna who they hiding these smoke show of Lamar Jackson is what you're saying. Well, no, I think what what you're going to see is Lamar Jackson go out there. But they they don't wanna put anything on tape for that media that first ten minutes the practice that they get to watch. They wanna keep everybody gets going. Well, what if our g three does get the opportunity? What do you think about that having been around? Yeah. I think Robert will do an outstanding job the guy control the ball mile. He's a winner back from his days in Washington. And I think he just needs another opportunity. I think he definitely has a chance to still make a good career in this league. You take care of yourself. Joe thomas? Okay. Thanks for the call. I know you got you got the stuff going on today. So appreciate you chime in pal. Hey, richard. I do appreciate you allow me to come on the show and talk about all the great things that leaky doing but also the Oscar nominated. Well, this this conversation's going to be submitted for an EMMY. So I appreciate already advance. You got Joe Thomas? I've been called Richard and Rick by guests so far this week. I know how do you feel about that? I'm Jane Lynch did notice right away. When she called me Rick Eisen. She called me Rick. I actually thought she was playing on the conversation. You guys had minutes earlier about various forms of Richard. That's right. So he thinks that that's a smoke show. Abella checks smoke show would rather not let anybody only thinks the Mark Jackson, quote, unquote. Not practicing is going to start. I disagree. You think RG three is gonna get the gig. I don't know about that. But I think that Jackson by all accounts has an illness. That's why didn't practice. Well. Let me tell you this. If RG three gets shot on Sunday. And I know that he is a low hanging fruit opportunity for folks is but I'm rooting for him. This is an opportunity that is so golden that Wayne RG three was in Cleveland. And then what diamonds making pressure pressure making diamond, right? And then and then went out of the league and was seen on Instagram with his new wife calling him his play by play of him. Throwing footballs at palm trees to show off his accuracy for NFL teams and everyone making fun of that. That if he gets an opportunity on a National Football League Sunday for the Baltimore Ravens in a game. They need to win in a situation where supposedly their franchise best with all due respect to Billick. But the all time record coach has a job on the line. This is a major opportunity, and if he balls out what happens. Got to go back to them. That's what I mean by opportunity. It's there, and you could say oh RG three, you know, while there's flacco is just out right now on all you got to see what Lamar Jackson has not. If he keeps not if he wins a football game any balls out. Which is why don't think he'll start? Okay. That's why you gotta go at Lamar right? They don't want to be in that position where they have to play Robert two weeks in row K. Is in Idaho. Let's need is again. He's been waiting for a long. What's up Isaac? Thanks for joining driving around the beautiful state of Idaho. Waiting to get on the show. The opportunity at first I wanted to piggyback on what you're talking about with the Packers and Seahawks that four or five and one that Green Bay had that one isn't really talked about right now. But that one is not a loss. Correct. So if that is going to play anything that can play a win. So I think that the hawks are the ones that need this win more than the Packers. See I knew I had to go up to, you know, Big Sky country. I had to go up there to the beautiful Pacific northwest area where we're seeing every day on the AT and T sports net up there. So I appreciate that Isaac. Appreciate appreciate it. Guys. Kristen everyone else. You've got great. Thank you. Thanks. That's Isaac in Idaho. Right there. I'm telling you Seattle at foreign six that's all she wrote. They go five hundred the rest of the way that seventy nine. Telling you, man. The Packers can rip off wins? They've got three home games out of the last five. They've got to go to the jets to the bears. Those aren't. Capers that they can't pull off they gotta prove it on the road, though. Like you said their own six in their last six they do. But. They used to not want anybody traveling more than one time zone to get to Thursday night football game. One year Andy Reid in Vince young came into town that was when the dream team year. You're right. They all crapped out in Vic got hurt. And it was the end of the Andy Reid era. Philly went into Seattle on a short week. And it was dreadful and the NFL basically said we're not making teams go east to west short week anymore. And they try to keep normally a team to stay in the same times owner only one time zone away. This is this is a two-time zone trip for Green Bay to the Bermuda. Triangle with a fail Maria's hit and that NFC championship game hit and this is not easy. And twelve no that they haven't won there in two straight games. And they haven't had a three game losing streak at home in forever because third Sunday night Thursday night's Monday night games in Seattle is a different Ballack's than at one a one PM Pacific. Let's take a break dream on. Green is spoken today. We have what he had to say. An Anthony Anderson. A new drop from just about a half an hour ago. Very good. That's next on the rich Eisen show.

I'm sure this'll be the year. This will be the one year. I don't wanna hear it is that how patronizing is very patronizing. Oh, this'll be the you're like Michigan leads the all time series. Michigan dominated Ohio State for very long time up on till trestle arrived and in Michigan got rid of Lloyd car. Kind of like the reds too early. And then let SOX Yankees stop. It. Maybe us for eighty some years. And now you're getting your come up come up come on. It is basically what I have to say thirty years from now, we'll talk. Okay. The new Anthony Anderson drop, and I think I think this is anytime dream on news. Okay. I mean, so this was Draymond green. Speaking to the gathered media at the shoot around in Houston today. The warriors taken on the Rockettes tonight on Turner first time since dream on was suspended last again last time, these two were on the court together was the famed Monday night here in Los Angeles where dream on needed to get it together. And here was dream on green speaking to the media as Kris Haines of Yahoo said when he was on our show an hour to with the statement. Kevin. There's no secret. I wear my most leave. Sometimes the best. It doesn't work favorite living. It works. Favor. Good. That's my resume speaks in the same resumes. More. So does. So I'm never gonna change. Always. Say the move forward. It all went out read a lot about how to run over ruined. Kevin. Danda the day. As before. Whatever Kevin decided, whatever Klay decide whatever decides to do. Together, support everybody. Four hundred percents hasn't mad. Human being about the right to do what she wanted to. Align. Okay. That was in part also said he's not going to be the reason why this team gets torn apart. So take that haters. He always comes back to the line. What do you mean? I mean, he steps over it. And when he does and then he. These smart enough to realize, but as Chris Hanes pointed out, an our number two Durant leaves win or lose win at all or lose. It's all going to be pointing back to this was the moment. As Durant was seen. Mouthing the words leaving the huddle. This is why I'm out. Dream on did cross along you shouldn't when it's basketball discussion. Bring in business, right? Don't go, right. It's about what's going on on the court night's gonna be good because the rockets are starting to play. Well, so you've got Packers Seahawks on one screen. Rockets warriors. Although rockets warriors when does that tip that tips while same time same time. That's that's a two window situation. San Antonio and the clippers. Meanwhile, the clippers will just keep going on right? Winning games. They they're approaching the chargers of basketball. Except that nobody thinks they've got a considerable plus possible championship running them difference between the NFL NBA right there, man. Yeah. Any team? I mean, how many NFL teams do you think can win the Super Bowl this right here? Patriots. Only one in the AFC east FC west chiefs chargers that's three AFC north Steelers. Right. AFC south Texans. Gotta fill the titans in there. They beat you. You want to remove the titans from there. That's fine. Okay. So that's the AFC has three six six and east. Nobody in the come on nobody in these gave him one. We don't let's not identified. Mystery NFC east team Rams for sure. Likings packers. You include the bears pairs of the best record out of all of them. Do you believe in the bears to win this year? No. But they you can't. They're six thirty on Sunday night. Totally feasible. Seven three. The bears together Trubisky came the Packers can win the Super Bowl. They have Aaron Rodgers you think they can win the Super Bowl. This. You have an Rogers. Let's disrespect the bears fan. So that's two rights. That's eleven eleven and MRs saints Panthers. The falcons in there. He may he's made it to. At dozen teams. There's a dozen NFL team to win the Super Bowl. In the NBA. How many teams can win the championship three? Or one. I'm sorry. I'm a painting hand win. Somebody's gonna have to beat the warriors seven in seven games come June. And what we're talking about right now. We'll be six months old. Half a year will have passed between our hand wringing and that moment. So a dozen NFL teams and only one NBA team can win the championship. To seize got suspended, and then Cleveland and of winning. I do have a feeling that this drop will be used sometime in mid June drain take. About that part. But I still believe. That the Larry Francis O'Brien trophy that handed on Tober thirtieth.

If you missed it. google or go to our youtube page youtube dot com slash richeisenshow to find out. Just how long steve. Smith can hold a grudge Well he said he wasn't holding a grudge telling the truth rookie in two thousand one pro bowl and humanity as a returner and he said that said that somebody wants somebody on. The other team was playing both receiver in Or somebody who he said something was going on where he there's somebody on the team was playing both receiver and something else and so he went joined the receivers because they were short somebody. He's a receiver of note as well as a return specialist. Who made the promo and colleagues like. Yeah you go with the receivers. You're not a receiver here. Oh boy oh boy oh. Please go to our youtube page for that story. Youtube dot com slash richeisenshow. So david kelly knows how to be in a sticky situation. Get out of it so hopefully he can do so for the texans album brand michael lombardi already on this program checkout again our youtube page you dot com slash richeisenshow if you are watching us on peacock sports tab. That's right above my finger as soon as you're done with this and catch everything we're also repeated on nbc sports on peacock. And if you don't have peacock it's free. Go get the app. It's awesome chris brockman. I know you usually have a news update around this time. Do you have one because there's tons of news. Apply of one in the nfl. Let's get that before we get to michael irvin here on this show go with a report of the day's news from the world of sports entertainment someone who is not a journalist or news man by any definition of the word whatsoever. Which chris bri chris for. What have i just. Nfl stuff catching up on free agency. Of course big news of the day. The patriots. Making a big splash guys. After yesterday spending nearly two hundred million dollars of free agency including top tight end jonny smith. They added chargers tight end. Hunter henry three years thirty seven and a half million twenty five million guarantee all right hatreds loading up for twenty twenty s indeed and so you know obviously The two tight end set that gronk aaron hernandez before We all know what happened with him. That was that was something else. You're the first team to really do that. They were too big. They were just like. Hey you know. Let's abbas well because again it's it's it's creating the matchup problems when you have two guys like that and you're gonna put like what you'll put your best linebacker on one and maybe your best safety on another or you bet your best you know Big cover guy. You've got two of them. Because that's what you're gonna need. Certainly if cam comes at a backfield and is bigger than both tight ends he is. That's what i'm saying. Thank i know or you hand it. Look it's the whole thing with new england you know and and this is definitely not born of fantasy where you get frustrated when you have a fantasy player on the team as a running back i i know they just have different like it's. It's it's like sony. Michelle week. Or it's damian harris week or it's rex burkhead week or it's james white week or something like that. I know you. Just give it to that alabama kid and see if he could every other alabama kit. That's been coming out of college. It's damian harris time and then it's rex burkhead on third downs. And then if sony michelle will get and if he's healthy harry heroes air sea ataman comeback. Go you know because james white looks like he's gone box drawing inches from tampa bay so well. He goes there right. Ronald jones and james white and tom brady. And maybe chris god win rob gronkowski and they're going to run it back. I do like the patriots moves man just in once again. I don't think it's any sort of Three four dimensional chess. That bella checks saw the minute that brady was gone that the pandemic was coming in. So let's sacrifice this year on the altar of twenty twenty one free agency where we're going to have a ton of Opportunity because we'll have a ton of cap space i. I don't think it's anything like that. I think it's like he went through the twenty twenty season. He sees what he's got in two twenty twenty one. He notices that. There's a ton of cap space that he's got he notices that a lot of teams don't have nearly as much cap space. He sees the cap. Go down they all knew it was gonna go down so the amount of cap space that he's got becomes that much more valuable. Let's strike it and let's go get players who are young in their prime and we don't have to spend that much overspend form compared to other years and signed him to contracts. That are two to four years in length and go to work. Then maybe use the fifteenth overall pick on a quarterback drops the best player available. Whatever or do you think that he's just going to be totally out of character and these things usually come in threes right so this is one to would be to just package everything together mortgage the future and go get that young quarterback right now in the draft. Just go totally hog. While they're eight and then number three would be to. Do you know a a late night. show where it's You know late night with bill and he comes out and he starts doing you know some stand up comedy. Totally just totally. Go off the reservation completely. I mean he did do what subway commercials for that. Maybe that was the first that was the first showing some personality with the dog and the chair thanking dog show. I like the new bill. The new bill. What else you got. We didn't talk about this at all. But this is a huge deal. Bud dupree coming off. His injury. Last year signs of tennessee. Five years eighty two and a half million grads to him with a blown out knee and everything big signing thirty five million guarantee. I'm telling you man you know. They missed cloudy when he wasn't you know healthy inactive last year. That's for sure. And if there's anybody knows what to do with do pre mike vrabel. And i'll tell you this we talked. We did talk about the steelers with prayer. This big ben's last season. Yeah for sure. Wh who's the running back on be wide receiver is going to be. It's not juju there anymore. What are they gonna do. Who's the quarterback. Ben gets hurt. Is it dwayne haskins. They me some root always. There's mason rudolph right. Let's see what happens with sam darnold. That's another one of those perfect fit. I don't think the jets would in a million years trade within the conference. Certainly there to pittsburgh but you never know somebody might offer the best possible package aren't some other stuff Shack griffin seahawks defensive. Back goes to jacksonville three years. Forty four million. Twenty nine million guaranteed. That's a monster. Deal and another piece of the puzzle. Goes away for the correct. That's correct. I'm telling the more and more that everything's playing out we'll have to see how it all goes. We're still so early here. I know so early. So what the way more and more plays out. I really liked the rams in that division. I really really do. I know the rams are gonna you know they've already lost some parts and free agency and i don't know man i just like i like Stafford they're like the way that they're that they're built offensively. They have three running back. Could tight ends. Obviously we know the defense right. They'll smoke they got him on On the thursday night of the draft. I heard a hot rumor that even though teams are allowed to be back in their facilities rams already acquired a spot in malibu overlooking the ocean. Oh wow nice. I mean if you don't have a first round draft choice beginning stan. Kroenke probably owns nineteen million properties of there right. So we're going to see some nice shots of the sunsetting on the draft from rams war-room cam as they're honestly they're looking good. Sean feeling good. Less like literally clinking. Glasses big come on the boat. You want to be out there. Yeah wanna be better by you. Better get a bigger boned mike. Better get your big speaker. Police mars stan kroenke. You gotta come correct anti seriously. You're digging compared to what stands probably got out there. Patriots may not be done mike giardi. Nfl fell network saying they've had conversations with chris carson and leonard fournette. Okay speaking of the box. They're actively having conversations with and su one in four net ryan suck up antonio brown who wants to run it back. What can bring all those who wants to run a fact who wants to take a little bit of a discounted play with tb twelve and run a bat one more time and go back to back. Who wants ryan suck up better one. He's the one that says the whole. I'm good i got mine. I'm gonna go kick for a team because principles and we talked about the packers yesterday. Big signing aaron jones over the weekend big three all their weapons. This guy was big for them. Last year robert tonnon. They extended a second round tender on robert tons green bay. now's the right to match any offers. The come his way or get a second round. Pick back for him. Okay well three point. Three million dollar tender basically insurance. He's going to stick around with green by hope so man because we did talk about it yesterday and and You know. I got some interesting responses when we tweeted out like who's got the best big three and the nfl and it was you know hill homes than anybody else and i'm like well that's not the deal. I got to be running back guys like if we said who's got the best quarterback wide receiver tight end tandem in the nfl. I mean there's with all due respect to robert robertson right. Kansas city has city's got it locked her but the old got michael irvin coming up. We're talking triplets quarterback running back wide receiver. Right there is deck. And zeke and amari cooper i got i got some baker chubb odell you know but odell has got a blown out knee and and you know i. Can't you know as much as baker took a major leap forward last year. We're going to put him in the category of aaron rodgers. When you've got a goat like aaron rodgers and the defending. Mvp you've gotta come seriously correct with someone like mahomes to correct it. Right or russell wilson or somebody. Who's five josh. Our shawn watson josh. Allen josh allen does have got stefan digs no question that is dynamite and it's tough to beat but when you throw the running back in their i can't no i mean you can't even go higher registered. Single terrier zack moss. You can't even do that. What else you got. I mean you know. Atlanta with ryan and julio jones and whatever and todd gurley i mean look this. Isn't you know a matt ryan mvp season. And julio can't stay healthy and gurley is from two years ago we'd had this conversation. Maybe it's aaron rodgers in davante adams. Who's up there with mahomes hill. Who's up there with allen and digs up there with any quarterback wide receiver combination right. Now you throw aaron jones in there who can throw in aaron jones in their the atoms that eighteen touchdowns. That's three and my favorite responses. Were because you know you tweeted out the video format rich eisen show and i read saying best quarterback running back wide receiver. Duo is and if you didn't see the video you might think i'm talking about all time. So jeremy schaap starts responding with all time white montano. And i'm like no current video shop responds like i didn't i. Didn't you know it wasn't clear. And i'm like well if you click the video not only become wiser but you also give a close friend. You're crediting your close friend with video. Click so he starts. You know czanka greasy warfield like you know like we're doing a parting shot on a sunday. Here i come on man. But honestly i think the packers had it right. Am i wrong. I think you're right and heathrow ton in there now you want to open it up. Too tight ends. Obviously kansas city will wake way. You know if jimmy g. stepped it up and you got kittle and then moster right and then they're wide receiver position is not because they're not up there. You're not up there with davante adams and whatever but you know if you open it up to the tight end to kelsey over. Tanya n- zero out jones over cloudy clyde edwards ealier. Now are now now. We're finally into it. But the fact that the packers have that point they could just play some defense men and maybe draft one more receiver for for rodgers off. We go to more things. Real quick saints among teams interested in richard sherman. Alright pertemps pella sorrow and super bowl. Odds have been moved a little bit after yesterday's action. Okay hold on a second The chiefs were still in first place right. Chiefs are still in first place. They actually improved a little bit. Because of joe joe tunes on their signing to protect home sheaves four and a half two one nine nine two two okay. Box packers still eight to one bills and ravens. Eleven and one patriots had the biggest jump guys forty two one now. Thirty three to one to win the super bowl rich. The jets corey davis daughter to talk about it. Went from one hundred to one to eighty to one. Yeah jets making moose all right. Let's just cut to and we're if we just keep lopping off a quarter of the way or fifth of the away twenty percent. Why are we really going to end up seeing patriots bucks superbowl next year. What we're seeing in the regular season. Yeah those that is a match up in the regular season. so we're looking forward to foxborough. I can only hope that cam is healthy for that and so is brady knocking on wood. If you're with me or definitely gonna see that. I just i don't know i got. Some strange feeling may come next february. We thought that was going to happen last year. But twenty. twenty as you know as you know Going from twenty from any football season to the next is to say you can run it back is. It's it's a long shot okay. It's a long shot but you can't put anything past brady. That's number one through that. And the packers. I think are are are have not regressed so i don't mind them being where they are there and i still think it's the chiefs world in the afc. It really is as long as mahomes and hill and kelsey in. They're all common back and they added some protection for him. And you know they'll make some wise moves in the draft. You know they'll do that. You know the question is can the ravens take another leap forward. Can the browns take another leap forward and buffalo's close. It's buffalo giving the run for the money and we'll see can wentz have a rebirth in indianapolis can and then there's always about that. And what happens with miami. Does shawn watson tip the balance of anything of what. We're talking about going from the texans to another team in the afc. Perhaps and then there's always one team that you don't see common could be. The chargers could be the chart. I'm not just never you know in the afc but we'll talk about al dallas looks in the nfc now. That dak is back in the phone. I mean we're winning it ma. All the all nineties tj jefferson just showed up because of triplets about to join us yes sir. Don't take the michael irvin cheese. Tj we're back with her and a second. do you own or rent your home.

Or wherever you get your shows back here on our radio network and joining the here's the man we just heard in our peacock only segment right there. I will be on with him at the top of the hour and the free agency fringy program. That's going on nonstop wall-to-wall coverage of nfl free agency on nfl network. My compadres from nfl game day morning and pro football famer michael irvin. How are you earth rich. I'm doing great rich. i'm. I'm happy and looking forward to this little so we're about to do name. The seeing the movement. And i only beat beatles happy saying the movement knowing that my god i will not be moving. That's what tc taking care of business. And i was saying you know what i mean you know. Obviously it matters how much jerry jones paid for dak prescott If it takes away from the rest of the salary cap but they actually lowered his number for this year when the numbers lower so maybe they will able to make some hay but you know as somebody we just heard again our peacock only segment for those markets on our radio. show you telling A story about jerry jones. Making you laugh when he was telling you know about A contract For more money. And what what do you say. How should i take it when he sits next to jerry who says that he. Oh anything that's ever been worth it. He's overpaid for. How do you think dax should take that comment. Michael hurt here talking. I'm sure that that her jerry taught me at times. You know honestly many times. He's always used that analogy when anything he thought had great value. Because said you don't pay for it is still means. He's as it has great value that i would overpay for see this thing goes both ways you know. And and then he also said that always have proven to be a good thing to be a good thing so absolutely i. I don't know i wouldn't be taking that as a slight. Especially since he paid me hundred million over. The last two thirty settled down just a little bit as john. What i'm here right here. Let me tell you this man and his dog. I'm steven jones me that jerry. We're all at a party couple of years ago at the super bowl right and we all hanging out in stephen was. We had a few innocent hanging out. Steve y you know what my just my little talking about that prescott said man you know one day one day you continue down the past. I'm out of the ride. A check for two hundred million dollars to come off to. I knew i thought he was crazy. Basically he just wrote hitching for two hundred million dollars. I it's incredible. It's incredible now comes the hard part though because now Now that he's been paid like this and the team is through going all in here With he and cooper and zeke Chewing up a chunk of the cap to say the least if not a quarter or more than a quarter on this team and just three players. Where where do the cowboys rank going into. Twenty twenty one. I know that free agency isn't landed in the draft. Hasn't landed yet. But you know what the level of expectation will be. what's their. What's what's their expectation in your mind. We're looking at cap. Valuable cash under the cap dallas has already made significant improvement by just going back to what they did on defense making that decision and offseason on the style of defense. That you'll go back to playing you know i. I think that's going to make a huge difference and you talk about the pressure that is put on that rich. I'm gonna tell you something. You know everybody us here talk about that. That's how he performs that that's the best place and that's how he performs so i'm not worried about that i. I'm looking forward to change once you get that money. Once you get that turned away on my god you've got to be gone on the football field. Just about that kind of pressure will be sitting that back. And i can't wait to see how he answers the bail because he has always answered debatable. All right so then. Let's get specific then since you just did not Nfc east you expect them to win that. Twenty twenty one. Let me tell you something. It was a shoo-in i listen. I was like this over. Are you joking. I was telling stephen. Ada is old folk. Cd's they'll win. That enrich no joke and why is side would watch it and i started saying well. How do you do that. 'cause i'm telling i'm telling you. Listen to me. Ryan says magic and take that stuff. He does over the washington and and and they can get somewhere and do software. I'm a little worried about that. Yeah i'm a little worried about. I don't blame you. I respect him enough that that that that's a possibility right there that that was a move that just too much. I bet i bet you know because you know what that defense and obviously he might turn it over a little bit more than what ron rivera would like. But i mean you know the way he's going to try and jam it in the window to maclaurin and logan thomas and the running game and I i would be concerned about that but you still think shoo-in for dallas in the nfc east. Okay so then. Let's go higher. Let's go higher up Do you think with being reassigned. Dan quinn being brought in to run a defense. That you think is more Familiar with the personnel. And i think that a lot of people were saying. That was a big problem with their defense last year And you know we'll put aside y dallas even considered that to begin with. But that's the past so now what about Green bay do you think dallas is better than green bay going into twenty twenty one. Just first blush right now. I think dallas game green bay in the playoffs absolutely with a chance of winning that. Football game absolute. Okay with this office of line that we'll get back the guys that are healthy but also the guys that step in now they have experienced so when do to be the backup so if these guys tyron doug hold up you got somebody now with sustainable tobacco absolutely. I do okay. let's go further up the flow chart then the tampa bay buccaneers. You're defending super bowl champs. Who you who were so all over in the super bowl. Is it all over them for all twenty six weeks. That's okay that's the past. We can forget about that too The buccaneers do you think the cowboys are going to be better than the tampa. Bay buccaneers in twenty twenty one. I blush were sitting here right now. That now the dax in the fold and you know this some more draftees etc coming. And here's the issue here you know 'cause 'cause 'cause you you wanna put it out as if you got me in a corner here with this. Let me tell you how i don on on me. Just wall no now picking up that tone from michael. I don't understand you getting that. From i don't know has the physical talent that that that even playing with a few bad decisions within a game can still take over and beat the green bay. Packers move along now here. Dallas also has the physical talent. he's offensive offensively because of that line intact. That'll slow down those guys up front the physical talent to compete with tampa bay but it will house to be the perfect game. Perfect game in order for the vehicles. Tom isn't going to make many mistakes. So so so. That's how i would drop that answer now. Of course you could get to the perfect game. And i you know i am. I'm willing to see. Obviously that could definitely happen. All right So should i even ask you about the chiefs or you're going to accuse me trying to box in here but you know on accused good too late. You know how to. It's how everybody's reacted everybody's reacting to what just happened in nineteen. That's what so. I i first day is like we don't okay. You know what you ended up season as we're going at the first thing we're going after and the cheese we talked about tackles and fisher being out but what really ended was they came right up the middle of the field and and and patrick mahomes had nowhere to go your time you still get a pocket and he steps up being right so he gets fast backwards or seven steps back in a few steps forward and that's all only takes retail way. Pass you by. Then it's over. What would we do k. Right up to middle. Get right in the middle. They couldn't even do that and they solidified that by still in the picture. Smart michael irvin year on the rich eisen show this. This tweet caught my eye. I don't know if you saw if you if you if you didn't I can describe it for you. We put it up on the screen. It's deondraye hopkins tweeting out a photograph of him looking very happy in a cardinals uniform and it says one year anniversary mood because it was one year ago today that he learned that the cardinals were acquired him from the texans. And the i thought i had Michael was to also ask you about. This is how do you think that's playing in the phone time. Line of deshaun watson today in the middle of the agency right now. What do you think michael. That's what i thought. That's where is that a leap too. Much of a leap. You tell me yeah. I tell you but what you're saying is how much did that. Strengthen his position for him as he sees this. You know when you say okay. I'm willing to do what it takes. Even if i have to take it to that level you know or the twelfth level as after the clock strikes midnight. You know shit out and stuff. How much is he willing to give to have that and not go back to where the air so. Yeah because i mean. I'm sitting here thinking because you're you're you're seeing it. What it what it means you know when general managing or old school management Certainly when they think that they bestowed upon you A contract worthy of your talent in terms of money and security and in no trade clause that you know when battle stations. Come to it that eventually you know right. Now we're seeing you know what there's no deadline until the draft any way free agency is not that big of a deal and then if the draft comes and goes in there is no trade then all of a sudden this sends things in a totally different realm where you're going to force the player to choose between his money and his principles and then when that happens things can co completely sideways and again seeing a photograph of his team mate. is all pro team mate from back in the day now teammates with another one of his all pro teammates from the houston. Texans that was just you know allowed to walk free and we understand. Why help and that. They're both there now. I just saw that. And i'm really not trying to stir anything up. I'm trying to give real talk here about how it might land in the palm. Someone's hand to see that photograph. You know i'm telling you rich but just like you say it. They know there's something down. Inside of the sean also and i say the approaches been. Yeah and i don't know. I don't know what they can say publicly. But if i if i'm i'm back doing all the players you guys got a call show i because he's more apt to into them to these other players. You know the team makes the is to management. So i'm going to play. If i'm on that team on a team in beijing a movie and it'd be talk to and trying to figure it out to help to help that situation right here saw if it comes from players but no shot coming from upstairs are you are you.

Says you've been did it over of just a minute eight. He's just he's out of his mind. No you're excited. Does this mean we got steven a. On to rebut. How call him.

Oh my gosh. that was good cartridge. Dr that was all right. Let's take a break when we come back we We remember one of the passing of an actor who is in some great movies including my favorite comedy of all time. Let's put on our shades when we come back so the News kinda hit me like a ton of bricks. I don't know why this one hit me but it did The actor at koto passed away at the age of eighty one He was in the movie alien Spoiler alert no bueno movies. Good unfortunately for him over banned Let die so live and let die. He played a bond villain in live and let die Bought for me. And he's had a many many roles of note for me playing alonzo. Moseley the fbi agent in midnight run was truly one of his greatest role if not his greatest performance. Ever now i haven't seen them all. But i'm also as you know very partial to this film orth that midnight run for me is my favorite comedy of all time. And just the way that he played the role the way that he handled the deft comedy that was required and in the seriousness of it. They kinda hit me. You offered koto is Passed away at the age of eighty. One man the running man the running man. Of course he was us. As one of arnold's he was trying to help. Save were pricing at dodd right. Worse and Routes right and then late nineties from me. Homicide life on the street on. nbc s. An amazing drama love that show. He plays one of we -tective now. My brother-in-law scott schuster who you know well He called me today and he kind of stopped me in my tracks sang. Could you make the case that the deniro character from midnight. Run jack walsh. Okay is the fifth or sixth best character in the entire film. Which on its face. Sounds like a total hot. Take or are we. Rodzi was number. One charles grodin. Well no number one is is serano dennis. Okay and then number two is just like if you had a random. You could put the duke charles growing there. Yeah you could put you off at alonzo. Moseley f. b. i. in that slot and you can't you can't argue with it. Then you could put the duke then. It's marvin door flir. And then it's moscone joey pants and that that we just named five characters but before you even get to the deniro. jack walsh. Who is you know is the emotional and comedic center of the movie in many ways. You know i mean open a diner right and it really is amazing. Because you could. You could even go. You know tony. I mean there's a lot you know. Jerry geisler gotta get the doughnuts. I mean. there's maybe a free but jafa koto is. I think you gotta put him the way that he handled you know with the sunglasses and going after jack walsh and right i i mostly mostly remove. This is it's a great movie a like you said on the surface yes heartache. Because obviously it's a dinner movie. He's i but on the rewatch. Maybe not maybe not. So you know what i mean like. It's kind of high register in a way when you talk about midnight right as well. I mean he's dennis farina duke. No question okay. I mean the funniest most laugh out loud character in the entire film is dennis farina serano you know and then you could also say his name singing. The lawyer lawyers pretty funny was played by Why am i blanking on. His name unites to also the The the librarian police in seinfeld went after him in the book Gosh why am i blanking on his name right now but you know sydney go. Philip baker baker all me. Yeah was terrific in that federal cream soda buried this telephone in your head like the two boys this more. Nowhere number two onto tony darbo's on the phone getting it from serrato and the other guys putting on the cowboy hop along cassidy take a picture. I mean seriously. I'm telling you it's one of my favorite movies of all time and comedies of all time offered koto was phenomenal in it. Honestly when my my brother-in-law said to me like you could make the cases he fifth or sixth. I'm like stop. Stop hold on and then we walked through it. Yeah you rented down. It's not. It's not too out of canada. I got to work with him in ninety five. Yes with elizabeth. Montgomery and how many movies of the week did you work like six or eight six or eight or maybe serrate. Let's stop let's just average it out. You worked on seven elizabeth montgomery right before she passed away witched. Okay who actually sang me. happy birthday. my birthday nineteen ninety five inches on friday. Which is on friday. Jafa kota aliens and one of my favorite the first alien right one of my favorite movies. While time right and james bond as to why i loved the early die. Would which is you could make the case the greatest bond song ever. Yeah from mccartney live and let die said. He was so cool like he. Anyone who asked a question at a movie right. How has released got to work with on. You know what. How is that movie like shot because it was dark vogel. I'm glad to hear. He was great aunt's recipe. Peace eighty one years. Old alonzo moseley fbi. How about a little movie. That that doesn't get mentioned a lot but you guys remember. The park is mine yes no. It's like a movie with tommy. Lee johnny sticks over central takes. He holds central park. Basically hostage kind of one of the the cops trying out that that was like a tv movie back in the early aj. I haven't heard that. I would love to hear the mike. The just you know in in in dribs and drabs. The mike del. Tufo movie of the week filmography. Because this is where that's where you drove. Liza minelli hangouts with scotland. At a i did was the other woman which was july berry and lane by was gills driver. Because i used to the. I don't know why the producers put me with the other woman ninety five came out ninety five but filmed in december ninety four. Remember the koto remember the name of buchanan deadline for murder deadline for murder. And the reason why i am so fond of that will be because playmate of the month was in that movie and i got to drive her to the set and i was like being a kid. Know my god. You're going and i forget who she was dating some rockstar at the time. So you had no shot plan rich. Who is in mike. I'm looking at the castro. Did you ever ever yolo from the front. I drove wiser. I drove in the same movie. With is i drove. What's her name. Shirley maclaine which was awesome. When i met. I met roddy mcdowell with liza minnelli.

Five four five four year. That met a lotta cool. What are we got. What else mike. Some other names of these movies. I think we got the gist. So tomorrow show ashton kutcher.

An hour number three with craig robertson Now of the mask dancer. We know him obviously from his work in the office and i up is kind of perfect guest for good. And and the unfortunate rod woodson will be joining us pro football hall of famer and fellow pro football hall of famer and steeler great. Kevin greene passed away yesterday. At the age of fifty eight the shocking death right there and man so full of life. We saw him all the time at the pro football fame right couple of years ago. I mean he's got the bus with the flowing lion mane one of the greatest bus void. I know so Kevin greene at age fifty eight apparent heart attack and he is no longer with us. And so rod will be talking about his memories of Of ken green. And then of course. We'll talk about last night's game to wrap up week fifteen. What a game. Pittsburgh steelers go into the cincinnati Jungle and get hit in the mouth repeatedly repeatedly repeatedly. Wow knowing put it is just to say wa. That deserves a while right. There's a while seventeen. Nothing halftime right. Which is what tom. Brady's deficit was this weekend in atlanta. But there was no comeback coming. There was a close but bengals made the place ryan finley running in twenty three yard. Run an a afl through the steelers defense you know. And it's really the steelers offense. That's the issue here. I mean we all know it man. You all see it you all sit. There are mistakes being made. It is predictable. Nobody's worried about the steelers running in nobody. James conner out. Benny snell in and the bengals are like bring it on bring it. We'll bring the pressure on big ben and all those routes that they're running we're not we're not biting on a single thing play action we scuff. No thanks juju smith schuster. We'll just hit him hard. We'll hit him hard and we'll hit everyone else hard and we'll make sure clay pulled us and get loose and this thing should have been. This thing shouldn't even have been a ten point game. I mean ben. Ben threw an interception. That went through. Was william jackson's could wrap that thing up. And instead they got a gift they got a gift. Pass interference penalty on fourth down on the goal. Line at led to benny snell scoring touchdown and then they got some gift playcalls from from cincinnati. Just trying to run ryan finley for that one. Last i down to try and end the game. And that got the ball. Back and ben's hands and then just some really weird playcalls like let's go deep and let me just throw it into quadruple coverage in hope the claypool comes down with it or pass interference flag just like there was no. I don't think he gives them that way. You throw in a trump these in a quadruple coverage does that take away the penalty. You what it is. it's just you know it. I didn't see it. Let's put it that way desperation. It smelled a desperation. And and that's that's what the steelers all right now. Because i've never seen a team start eleven. Oh and clinch playoff spot. And that's wondering if their playoff team. I don't think i've ever seen this before and not scared of them. That's for sure the are no longer to seed. They're the one seat the whole season. Three straight losses. There the three seed they could drop to the four seat now. They need the titans went out and they lose out. Because as we all know that reconfigured steelers titans game from week four that they had to move because the titans had a major covert problem. They had a move that all the way to week eight. And you know this is a or week seven. They had a swap things around with baltimore and the steelers won that game and that was the beginning of us wondering if the steelers were really all that good because it was a few straight weeks in a row in which pittsburgh needed to dodge a bullet second as we remember tennessee. Baltimore dallas all had the game on their either leg in their quarterbacks ball and quarterback's hand to beat the steelers and we're all wonder if if the steelers were for real and now they've lost three in a row first time in the super bowl era since the merger since one thousand nine hundred seventy. We've never seen a team start eleven. And oh and then lose three straight as a matter of fact every single team since the merger that started eleven at eleven. Oh all of them finished with fewer than three losses. Nobody's ever lost three of their last five. Let alone three in a row after starting eleven. And oh we've not seen the last team to start eleven. Oh and then lose. Three in a row was the nineteen sixty nine ramps. So we haven't seen this. This is another unprecedented moment in twenty twenty. And i'm wondering what's going on here daniel jeremiah. My buddy at the sticks did you see. He tweeted out halftime. He's like ben looks hurt benz all their saw that. But what's not there is the running game. That's just that's just not even anybody's at all concerned. We are not concerned that you're going to run it down. Our throats are not concerned about this run on third and short. We're not concerned about this. Run on first and ten when concern about that. Let's stay on schedule. Second and five seconds six ron. We're not concerned about the play action. We're not concerned at all about any manner in which you intend to run the football which is a major problem for a team entering a stretch ron let alone a playoff and the browns can win this division. The cleveland browns can win this division. The cleveland browns have the jets. And then the cleveland. Browns have pittsburgh pittsburgh's next game coming in after this monday night. The buckles indianapolis and he needs this football game in the worst way we've got their coach coming up at the end of the our our to this is major. Problems can still lose five in a row potentially and then not even play a single game at home after starting eleven and always had entirely possible. Could you imagine i can. It's fees it's beyond feasible. Which team has the better run game. Which team has got the quarterback who's playing as the defensive player of the year candidate on that team like the steelers have mas garrett says baker mayfield's playing like his hair's on fire who's got the hotter quarterback who's got the better run game. Could they finish browns eleven and five and missed the playoffs. Well they have clinched playoff spot. Okay they're in there in iraq they are in but they follow seven conceivably and if they do that The their problem would be to seat would most likely be the buffalo bills passed. Nobody wants any part of having the steelers cata by this year. I forget and and you have known all back. You have to start wondering okay. You have to start wondering although the tennessee. Titans as you know there by week moved to week four but they also didn't have a stretch. Where a thanksgiving day game got totally reconfigured and then that led to another totally reconfigured game that did lead to their first loss and then another game after that. What did the steelers play like. Three games in twelve days or something like that. You have to wonder if that is in fact finally coming home to roost. Tennessee doesn't have the problem that that they're running into a wall. Obviously it helps to have a run game when it comes to that so the steelers have a persevered through all the craziness the cova craziness by the way. None of none of which was because they had an outbreak in their own house. It was the titans outbreak in the ravens outbreak. That reconfigured the steelers season. And you have to wonder. Are we finally seeing the effects of all that maybe shore they have injuries dislike. Everyone else may be sure. That run game has disappeared. I mean poof. Like kaiser soza gone. That's a. That's who i'm tom again. I know clyde edwards helaire is hurt and it is possible that he can return for the playoffs because the divisional round the divisional rounds a month away. And that's when the chiefs will be playing their next. I must have game. High ankle ran really. Okay is that that's all it is is. The old high ankle sprain ended up with that. I'll just take the dreaded. High ankle sprain after you iphone. That's like torn groin and all sorts of all my. Gosh that is the human body is not meant to be contorted that way but you still have left bell theright. It looks pretty good. Concern about the kansas city chiefs. Run game a single terry. You know and moss. I have been saying that. I'm concerned about it. But they are beginning to show some teeth. An quarterback is just makes up for any problems. Anyway that you might have in the run game. Because he's part of the run game and then you got the tennessee. Titans you're concerned about their run game. You got the cleveland browns. You concern about game. You got the indianapolis colts. Are you concerned about their run game now. The dolphins i'm concerned about their run game. A little bit ravens. You concerned about your. You're concerned about their ravens. Run game yeah. Yeah because they have an ingram and gus edwards. I'm not concerned about lamar jackson. Running the football well okay. But i'm just saying when you have to get that two yards three yards four yards or the run game is something that needs to be respected. I think that's the dobbins is really come on the last. No doubt and gus edwards the gusts buses. Not a you know. An ingram is still you know i. I have us a healthy scratch this week. But there's still trust levels with him. Big trust okay. How my my point is the steelers might have the worst run situation going on right now because if gaskin comes off of the covert list i take gaskin over. Who the steelers are suiting up right now. Even the salvator. I'm ed looked amazing against the paycheck. I mean where where's connor. I know he's gotten covert and he's it's terrible so i'm concerned about the steelers. There's no toys put it and we'll talk about it with rod woodson and then you know. Rod will be joining us chris long. We'll talk about it with him here on the show. Here's another thing. I took out of that monday night or chris what. I took out of the monday night because this is about me. I'll just walk through the front door a walk through the front door here on this program. Okay britain is in the league. Which is loves is whatever you've got all sorts of drops. You could play the rich. The rich us prefer. I wanted to be honest with you. You're hitting that one. No rich eisen loves rich. Eisen whatever you know what. You'll run another forty and your yeah all right world cope so this is a moment for me and this is what i took out of the monday night. Football game if ryan finley can run through the stout steelers defense. because they're steelers. Offense kept putting them back on the field if ryan finley can do this in the third fourth quarter against the stout steelers defense if he can make a throw to. Aj green if he can move the ball down the field or make just enough points and score against this doubt defense and then his defense can go and put up a four quarters stout front on offense run by ben. Roethlisberger and and white outs like juju smith schuster and chase claypool and diontae johnson. If this can happen. Why can't gardner minshew do that against the chicago. I can't mention mania. Which is there's no there's no findlay. Funhouse writers know finley fantasia. There's none of that. We don't talk about that. He doesn't have the swagger of gardner minshew you and mitchell trubisky is far more mistake. Prone than future first ballot. Famer ben rothlisberger right. Why can't number fifteen with his flowing locks come out and make sure that those are the only flowing locks in jacksonville and twenty twenty one. I'm not ready to give up the trevor lawrence ghost. I know i said yesterday that by today. I'd start planting my feet firmly in the world of reality looking at the numbers and looking at what we think is the most realistic come. I just watched my own.

Mack and run over gardner. Minshew you can't find. Dj charq jets fans can't learn how to pronounce the name of la viscous not know they can't actually. Yeah you know what. I mean todd. Wash coordinated defense can't wash over trubisky. We're not letting alan robinson beat us.

All i'm saying is this rich com. What we just saw we just saw weekend first time ever first time ever two teams nine wins worse than their opponents beating those opponents on the same weekend. We've never seen that before. Jets nine wins shy of the rams and bengals nine wins shy of the steelers. Both one never seen that in. Nfl week before. If we had turned to steve mariucci. Kurt warner michael irvin as a group. Nfl game day morning. Saying you're bold. Prediction should be dez. Bryant levy on belle frank gore antonio brown and larry fitzgerald wall score touchdowns.

Because i went all ham on on the jets. Lose to the rams properly. You and i'm very proud of you appreciate that. He's one of my favorites. That i got to work with as a matter of fact I probably did more. Nfl total access shows with this man as an analyst on that program than anybody else and he's a first rate individual and a pro football famer rod woodson. How i rod. What's going on brother. How are you. i'm fine. How are you you their brockton here mirror. I can't can you hear me right. I got you. Yes sir yes sir. Okay so i mean. Let's let's start with the passing of your your friend and colleague and pro football hall of famer. Kevin greene rod. I'm sure this took you back just like everybody else. Well definitely did You know i. I got a text yesterday from somebody in the front office. From steelers saying that kevin paths and i was like what you know dinner guy. One of our teammates called me and asked me. If i don't do anything i called the steelers and they do. They told me what they know. And you know just unfortunate guy. Fifty eight years old. He got home Feeling pretty good For the most pardoned. He said he didn't feel good for a second and You know collapsing and passed away. So you know what i remember about. Kevin green is when i first met him. I was at my first pro bowl. And i was on the punt team for afc east nfc team I was a wing guy and He put his hands on me with. Let me get off the line. I felt like a little baby kicking and screaming and trying to get down the field and he was laughing at me saying it's not going to get not gonna get away from you would and That was my first experience with the hand. A great human being You know my prayers go out to his wife and his kids We never be forgotten so one thing to take from that story pro. He's playing like that in a pro bowl run for real really did that in a listen back in the back in the day we we took the pro bowl very seriously. We got a little got a little extra change for in our wallets. You know anytime you get competitors together. You want to have fun. You don't wanna get injured. Obviously but you know you wanna win ended the day you know back then we really took. There was some pretty hard hits. There were some guys took the extremely serious. And if you brought your Your in-laws or your parents you needed to win. Try to break even remember but the fact that again. Kevin greene is playing that hard and a pro bowl. Obviously it was maybe more prevalent back in the day. But he's just you know obviously you. You've got to be a certain competitor to get in the pro football hall of fame. What would you want. People young folks who might not have seen kevin greene play know about him and his style rod. Well he was a tremendous player. You know a lot of people you know. It took them a while to get into the hall of fame but you know. He had double digit sacks for over ten years. That's i mean getting ten sacks is hard to do for one year he did it for over ten years and you know this tremendous player But the one thing. I really respect about him is that he was a great family. Man you know. He was offered a job at they The head coach declined it because he wanted to be with his family. He left the jets because he wanted to be. What is his kids in high school. I mean it was. It was about family for him. And i respect that tremendously because family's very important at the end of the day that's all we have and You know he plead his cause simplified everything about being a blue collar worker because we as a society we praise play people who talk a lot of trash and pointed their backs. And it's all about them and kevin wasn't like that kevin was just a blue collar. Hard hat worker came to play every single day and played extremely well at a high level for his disaster of his career. And that's the main reason pro football of fame but the long flowing hair. What the strong attitude man. I'll never forget it. I mean he you know. I know he played in other places but i mean kind of the steeler mentality he he personified it. Oh absolutely i mean you know rich diverse state. I the first time. I've seen in person in the steelers facility. He i walked into the weight room he was his back was turned to me. I thought we traded for an office alignment because he was that big and he turned around. And i was like kevin. I didn't know your bats. Doggone big no wonder. I couldn't get away from the pro you know. So it's you know. He was a steeler through and through You know he played like a steeler his mom his mind was like a steeler and the great thing about playing with kevin kevin greene who had great low so we used to call them salt and pepper anytime we want it. You know dom capers defense coordinator to put some pressure on the quarterback. We're like hey just give give that quarterback a little spice ensues. We said that. Dahmer call our saw dog which is covered wine. But he's gonna bring the will which is great and kevin green and they would normally always get back to the quarterback so in pepper and they mix it up in the In the backfield and usually would mean with some quarterback on his backside. Unbelievable rod woodson here on the rich eisen show. Let's talk about the here and now. How concerned are you about the steelers right now. Why you're definitely concern. Three in a row You know you you play the first half of the season and get yourself ready for the second half of the season and december you know losing three straight games is concerning then the way they're losing is concerning no running game They still got the little quick short passing as but you know anytime you're one dimensional and if you look at their stats last three weeks they are really one-dimensional throwing the football quick rhythm take a couple of shots down the field. That's what they've done but everybody's kind of caught up to that and if they don't get run a game or a similar to the running game It's going to hurt them. And you know they you look at their last two games. They got the colts in the browns. So those are no. Give me so it's gonna be interesting to see how they play You know obviously already in the postseason but if you can't get on a winning streak going into the playoffs Your mindset team some somewhere along the line those guys that are on the borderline gonna start question. Ubs should they belong So you know mike. Tom's a great coach. I know he'll get back in order but they gotta find a way to get a running game. It's going to be short playoff career foreign issue. Well my colleague. Your former nfl network at deakin kabbalah reporting that mike tomlin said today. He's talk he's gonna talk to juju about dancing and other teams logos. Apparently that will help the bengals. Stir themselves up. Get that rich. I i just don't get it. I understand you want everybody to bring the on your to the game but the disrespect. The logo is like a sacred ground. You know it's it's it sounds sacred. Remember to you. Try to do it on the dallas cowboys Logo after touchdown. I mean it's that's you can't do stuff like that. And i know it's a pre game but you just can't do. It gives motivation your eleven at the time you know when this whole thing when they at the beginning of the year. And then you're gonna you're gonna get the a game from every team that you play against but now you're getting at you're giving. The team added motivation to play. Even better at harder against your offense and they've done that the last week while also remember tj schmidt. Zodda wiping his cleats on a terrible towel. I remember that too. You know. I mean it's it's an and pittsburgh did not like that at all. I mean they still folks still talk about that you know and then i but how do you find it. That's the problem. How do you find that run game. I mean just hope that connor gets healthy or and shows up. I mean how. How do you find it so late in the game. And then you got the colts. No with that defensive front darius leonard deforest buckner followed by myles garrett and alleviate vernon then followed by a playoff season. I mean this is. This is dire straits away rob right after you after. You just said that it it. It didn't make me feel too good. That's my job as you know working together a perspective. That's my job is to lend perspective and opinion it is going to be. It's going to be tough them. Rich to be honest You know they haven't been a great running football team over the last couple of years You know. I love the story of connor and what he brings to the table when he is healthy. But that's the problem when he is healthy and not only about the running game. But i think the middle of the field for the steelers and the linebacking core at all andrew's been ravaged with over the years. Excuse me throughout this year you know. They need to find somebody. I mean vince when he comes back vince williams when he comes back. That's gonna help them. But you know having all those injuries some the linebacker we're at three four and guys are going down and you're missing your top several inside linebackers in the one thing that they exploited it Quite a bit. The last couple of weeks has been in the middle of the field and that's one of those linebackers. Rome wasn't here On the rich eisen show few minutes left with the pro football hall of famer. So what what are you what are you. What are your two cents on the final two weeks here in this regard d. Do you go with body a work last year into this year and just know this team that has playoff hopes or is at the top of a playoff food chain like the chiefs or the saints packers that they that they are fine going into this postseason and they are going to be actually the front runners or do you go with hot team. Hot hand buffalo cleveland. Do you go with the way the titans are playing all of a sudden. You look in the nfc and you're wondering which team might be able to catch fire from that group. Where do you stand on this issue right now. Well i mean. I can't see the is D- best team in the national football league. But when i you know. I called the buffaloes game last week and in denver and when i when i'm watching their tape over the last over this year i'm saying that one team can kinda score point for point with the kansas city chiefs. It could be the buffalo bills. They have weapons across the board. They can put up a lot of points. Their defense is similar to. Kansas city's defense. They're solid they're good. They're not great. They've been inconsistent. But so can city defense. So and when i looked at the schedule i'm saying we know. Kansas city is the best team in the national football league. What team in the. Afc can put up the same amount of points that they can and the only came. I can come up with. Is the buffalo bills. And you know i hear you. I hear you my my concern again and it pisses buffalo fans off. I know because. I see comments That that when it comes down to can they possess the football. Maybe they can do it with josh allen being part of that running attack and then just move the chains and let the let let the clock run down cami possessed the football six seven eight minutes at a time consistently enough to keep the possessions limited for kansas city. Can they do that do they. Have single terry. Moss do that for them. Is it allen mixed in. Is it the short game with dawson. Knox and cole beasley. Can they do that in the cold. Can't say i guess they can right. Yeah you just think so 'cause mawson signatory even though moss is about the same size as secretary secretaries more scat back you know. Moss is a dick lower body running back who when he's lowers his shoulder pads he's getting extra yardage there he's moving the pile and then they have a short passing game. But then you've got josh allen and rodney games so they go empty. Still go quarterback draw. That's called run. They can you know get when they get in the red zone. That's where it's critical when they get in the red zone. Josh allen doesn't make a lot of mistakes he hasn't thrown an interception in the red zone since he you know this year and he's rush in his career he had to last week so we have thirty seven or excuse me twenty four rushing touchdowns in his career young career so he's capable of adding to that running game. And anytime you can get quarterbacks and get first downs with an unscheduled first downs with their feet it just adds to that amex to it. So i think they could eat the clock up but they're big play strike offense very similar to kansas city. And i just keep saying if any team can score thirty points like kansas city can consistent basis. It could be the buffalo bills. And so what's the comp for for josh allen from your playing days is it elway. Would that be the proper comp for josh allen the way he's playing right now too much. It's very similar similar. I'm gonna put him in the hall of fame category while he's he's playing most valuable right now in a way. But what's the comp for somebody that big who can run with a big gun. Who who who's. Who's the comp for josh allen from your days whoa gosh that's a. That's a great question. I don't know anybody that big run like he runs. He can throw. He throws a great deep ball. You know he doesn't when you look at you know drew lock who has a strong arm well and drew lock throws a deep ball. It's more it's i mean it's kind of a straight line be ball so he doesn't give receivers enough time to adjust to where josh allen who has a cannon arm can throw make any throw in the national football league when he throws a deep ball steel. He gives enough air to his guys to adjust to it. I mean i can't really think of a guy who i played against who has the same abilities You know 'cause he's six six he's two hundred and forty five pounds. He can run you over. Take throw a touchdown pass. But then he can throw it and he can throw the long ball so i mean he has all the tools and the and the in the tool kit You know everybody kept questioning. A guy from wyoming. He can't he can adjust the national. Football league doesn't matter where you play if you have talent and then once you have that talent you come into this league you have a good system and you keep getting better. It doesn't matter where you play. So i think you know. Obviously he's one of the better quarterbacks in the national football league and You know as he plays. Well go keep winning. Couple minutes left when the rod woodson hoodie. Like in the. Nfc who's your nfc team two weeks ago. Heck it's green bay packers about that. I mean right now. Aaron rodgers playing lights out is I'm not is little inconsistent. They can't make plays they can't get Some pass rush with the the smith brothers. But you know aaron rodgers ways plan and they're not running back. You know. Aaron jones you know when you look at how good he is dynamic is in space in between was only edges in the passing game you know and then if they ever get a number two receiver rich. They're going to be dangerous. You know they've been trying to figure out who can go opposite of davante adams but you know davante adams even. He said he's the best receiver in the national football league. I think other people probably want to argue with your mother receivers illegal and what the but i think those stats speak for themselves right. I love you man I always miss talking to you. Whenever i do. Talk to you And you know it's interesting. We we started with the pro bowl conversation Do you remember the advice. You gave me before i went to cover my first pro bowl with you. Germany advice. You gave me run back in the day day would not remember. You told me you told me out of whatever. 'cause do because obviously had never been to a pro bowl there in hawaii. You told me whatever. I do the last thing i should do is give my room number to anybody. Remember that they will take it in. You knew it'd would be a lot of my ties in but you said you said you said forget about giving your room number. Anybody you said. Don't even say it out loud he said don't even you told me don't even write it down for is what you told me. Yeah they get you get. What am i gonna get my rich eisen mugs and t shirts since so i can support rich eisen. Well rod hot getting line. These guys like to stuff rod. You know mike.

Whatever you do do not give out your number. Don't do it. What did sean marrying till shown merriman told us. His first pro was twenty. Five thousand dollars put on his something like that. That's what they do. What rumor you five. Oh one yeah. Go down to pool. That's sean payton sean. Payton and tony romo went to the same college right. So enroll made his first pro bowl. He said to. Sean payton says to romo. Hey my son who's now grown ass man. His son he goes. My son drew a picture. You and i wanna send it to your room. What's your room number. Romo gave it to him next day. They broke the nfc huddle by giving out romo's room number on three. And i think just now just this year alone. What romo makes is another seventeen million broke. The nfc huddle wrote with romo's note room number on three one two three. That's what sean payton did to me. Man you do not don't give your ties on rich. And of course you know marshall faulk guest my room number by watching me right down on a on on a you know a seat a receipt. Which put him at folio enhanced and he watched the top of my pen and he held it over me all week. That i know your room number all your room number and even gave it out on. Nfl total access.

Nba fantasy basketball draft and amazing and brockman gets gets james harden and lebron james which you never would've Wanted to do going in. And that's great ruined my whole draft strategy. Get in both. But i had to take. I had to back here. On the rich eisen show on the mightier ten ninety locally here in southern california the rich eisen show radio network nationwide back here in the simulcast on nbc sports on peacock. Let's take this phone. Call from ben and mississippi ben. You're on the rich eisen show again. How you doing sir. How would ask how you doing based on what happened yesterday. Yup not well. But i have a solution low farfetched okay have a salutes out of all of the situations in strategies and all the potential implications that will happen all the fast make games that we have over the next two weeks. Yes the most interesting place in the nfl. World is jacksonville fl. that's correct. Here's what as you know right now. Currently they they're slated for the number one pick but here's what we've seen twice so far this year. What are we have things mutiny and anarchy from your former defensive coordinator gregg wings and the bozo from detroit this weekend alone So we have a head coach. Who loves he's going to be axed at the end of the year. We have player. Who have pride more than anything else. No against management correct for the next two week that's correct so we have a player both management situation. And here's another thing depending on what happens this weekend. Indianapolis could be cleared for their playoff. Lives week seventeen against jacksonville. The only team they be issue just told what you just jacksonville. Not only you. But they eliminate indianapolis screw them out of the number one pick. Well here's the thing. I like the cut of your jib. I like your moxy. I always enjoy when you call in. And i always enjoy your takes especially when they give me hope Here's the thing is frank reich's calling it an hour number two. I don't want him eliminated. I don't even have those words mentioned. Because i don't want him to associate that potentially with anything with the rich eisen show some place that aside but i like everything else that you've just said and thank you for the call. I appreciate it. Do us any real estate with frank asking him to tank week. Seventeen not in a world. As your attorney. I found out of it. Just shows you how out of my mind that you're even get out of my absolute mind because i'm look i'm going crazy well with i'm going crazy. Be that the jets one for the obvious reasons. The other one too is the jets. Finally win the day in which michael irvin is feted on. Nfl game day morning for winning the lock of the week contest because he had already clinched it the week before. And as you know he chooses against the jets every week and the producers allow him to do it. It's like even if i've like. Hey look a jet fan. I've known i knew the minute. I was born in nineteen sixty nine that we're going to lose this week game. I know it. I'm not allowed to choose it because that's reserved for michael. It's a totally. And we knew we hear the words rigged allot who's days it truly is thoroughly rigged for a television segment and the producers are immune to this. Because anytime i complain about it it just gives them more fuel to rig it worse and when it's one for a second consecutive year because michael irvin keeps choosing against the jets. They just poured on so they got a whole bunch of people to record videos to celebrate. Michael on played it throughout the show. He was the first one jerry jones in our one. Go ahead michael. You've always been like a son to me. And i must tell you. There's more that feel like christmas and our experiences together than anything else. I'm so proud of you the way that you've Been able to distinguish yourself for this amazing achievement ability to use everything that comes to bear. Your intensive has always been there but to accomplish something of this strategy. Thanks your to a different level even in mass by the way through. I'd like to say this to you if you'd use half that energy that you are in predicting these damn games like this. If you'd come a little better advice to me on how to win a down football and who to do it with then cowboys might add a little more success. Now get off your own your feet and get me some way. You're doing mister jerry. Jones is jerry christmas tree on his yacht. I have no idea where that was but they were just getting started. Downplay the second video. They actually got stephen a smith.

Only one problem still think those cowboys go do something.

And tom was finally time to give them the trophy. Which was like fifteen feet tall. This cut deep. Reggie jackson wait. Hey man i got to throw this out there. Rich kurt michael playmaker.

Three of the rich Eisen show is on the air before he had Steve Hutchinson pro-football Famer on the program and He called in Jeff Passan called in to talk about about that wild trade between the red sox and the dodgers and the angels and the twins and all that craziness Doug Allan just said I'm really nice chat with the director writer producer creator of. HBO's entourage from back. In the day he'll be joining us here. We've been communicating with them on our richeisenshow instagram page and stuff like that. Hey Doug come on man. It's been awhile since I've seen just a nice chat with him back in our green room joining US shortly. The parades going nuts in Kansas city. The speechifying has begun. I told Travis Kelsey I believe in him. I believe he's GonNa top his brothers big moment from Philadelphia couple years ago because you know brothers draft top each other as the as our next guest quite knows. How do I introduce this guy live from Houston? It's Wednesday afternoon it is fresh off his fantastic. SNL hosting appearance he is perennial Pro Bowler Future Hall of Famer. Jj Watt out here on the show how are you JJ rich. I'm good I want to say that was a beautiful segue. Appreciate brothers over to me so that was great. You know what j j just just got to bring my A.. Game with you as a matter of fact I will describe to you what I'm doing. I'm removing my richeisenshow Coffee Mug here and I am replacing racing it and honor of you calling in with you on one side of a Mug celebrating. What appears to be a sack from your Wisconsin? Days and the final score. Four of this year's Wisconsin Michigan game at saying this Cup holds rich Eisen tears. So I'm doing just well-designed Just glad glad to see it on the air. I appreciate you know what Jayjay it's just a it's just An unfortunate development but it is one that I own and it's also proof that you've got not the comedy chops that's why you got the call from SNL. That's why you got that call. They did say that they thought that was the final factor. Santa Dan. I'm factor was a factor in this whole thing. You're back thank you and the poll you. I appreciate that I appreciate that. When did you first get that call from from NBC A couple of weeks back And I mean it was. I mean it's it's such exciting icon show and I grew up in Wisconsin Chris Farley and his bits and skits and I mean Matt Foley Motivational. They should be just legendary stuff and so for me to be able to go there and to see everything and they showed me some of the old farley stuff and some little he had written something on a wall there that they show him in it was just. It was a really really cool experience. Can you Repeat what he wrote on wall that just has to stay he no he there are. They showed me that. When you're doing the show you're literally sprinting? From place to place like quick changes and dress changes and all that and there's one area area where if you don't duck if you're over six feet tall and you don't duck you will absolutely rock. And they said that Farley used to hit it over over and over and over because he just he would be spending. It didn't know. So they put like this big pad with like bright colors and everything and he wrote on their four or Farley because it was for him specifically and so they showed me that and it was really cool. And it probably helped you with all that I mean again. We're we're we're stolen scrolling through some stills from your appearance you made many changes many whigs there seemed to be some some makeup involved as well. Well I mean I walk me through credible that yeah so so obviously. During the week you get fitted for a wigs. All all your wigs. They make basically a full bold of your head and then they build the whigs off that mold and then for me for the big foot sketch were that we put prosthetics on my face going. And you'll get a full mold of your face made Kinda like when you get a teeth moulded Dennis when they put that stuff in your mouth. Yeah To form against their teeth they do that. But with your the whole face and then they build that during the show it truly is crazy or like I said you're sprinting from place to place and as soon as you get to a quick change location you just put your arms arms about put your legs out there. Three people just ripping clothes off viewpoint. Throwing new clothes on you wigs are flying. It's it's insane So I imagine O.. J. J. Watt here on the rich Eisen show. I imagine though the toughest thing for you was that monologue what I would that be the Safest assumption or what to get out there and just say as far as the writing of it goes that was definitely something that we spent a lot of time on just because for me I wanted it to be as much in my voice in in my comfort level is i. I felt. We could make 'em so obviously early in the week they don't. I know me that well. I don't know them that. Well we're trying to write something funny and good together without knowing each other that well as we goes on if you saw the monologue from Wednesday and then you saw what was on Saturday night. And they don't look even recognizable to each other and so I think that was my biggest thing I always said even if the monologue hops or does do good or anything at least wanNA feel comfortable with and have it be in my voice. I feel like we got to a really good place on Saturday night with and I was very happy with well during Super Bowl Week. I had Dion Sanders on on my show down to Miami and I asked him what advice would you give. Jj Watt for hosting Saturday. Night live. Because you know he did it. He did a way back in the day and and he said to that that you're going to have a lot of ideas pitched at you and you've got to be comfortable with the ones that you do which was the one that you're most? I guess comfortable doing all the ideas that we actually saw on television the J. But one the one that I immediately when they pitched it on I think it was Tuesday that I knew it was gonna be gold was the rudy skit Robbie Rudy. I mean I grew up watching rudy as one of my favorite movies of all time. I hardly loved it I chronic and then when they pitched it and we just I started flowing with the jokes and we start going through what the dialogue could look like in a janitor and five foot nothing it was just I was like this is going to be golden I mean and the best part about it is again. You're you're the guy that refuses to let the coach. Use The guys inspiration. You're just standing there pointing out. We cannot go on the field with this guy. There's just actors are so funny and Keenan whenever he says anything is hilarious. It was so much fun fun and so what did you say I just can't do. Can you tell me what wound up on the cutting room floor. Jj there really wasn't a ton so like the interesting part about is cutting room floor so on Wednesday you read through forty five scripts. They forty five full scripts. You do a full table. Read through with the whole cast and everybody in the room right and then you chopped down to eleven and then you take eleven to the full dress rehearsal on Saturday night two hours before the actual show and then after that so you have an hour and a half between the dress rehearsal on the actual show you cut that eleven eleven down to like eight. So it's just it is truly wild. How much happens? And what goes on so like One that got cut that that we caught right after the dress before the show was It was just like a cabaret bar and I ended up on stage singing They probably cut it because my absolutely horrendous michaels which thankfully nobody had to hear that besides in the frozen skate when I when I saying a little bit it's the whole process is truly incredible. How quickly they turn things around? How quickly and calmly they make decisions and no no amount of time? It's unbelievable and then they got to do it again. I mean it's kind of I mean in a way that's like a foot football season right. It's it's one. It's a one week preparation for in your case. Three three and three hours maybe three and a half for them whether I guess where the dress rehearsal. There's like three hours and then and you okay. That's done. Let's do it again in some believable. It's it's so similar and it's really impressive so it all builds up just like you said you start on Monday and you build up you prepare you you right now. You read your scripts just like studying playbook and then you're building up towards one live event with a real audience with pressure on the line with having to make changes and having get your lines and there's all these people you know. Hundreds of people backstage gas shifting sets and moving stuff. It's literally if one person screws up it screws. There's up the whole teams right just like sports and I was talking to like the the some of the guys behind the scenes and they were like. We've we've been doing this for twenty plus years and the adrenaline adrenaline. That you get on Saturday night reminds me of when I played high school football when I played you know. So it's it's very similar in that aspect where you're part of a team and you get the adrenaline rush and the really many places you can get that. Jj Watt here on the rich Eisen show and then when it's all over this one I've been to I've been in. SNL Laughter Party. That can go all night. So did you hit. Did you hit that too and like stay out three four in the morning. That sort of thing. You hit that absolutely absolutely. I told myself when I booked it I was like listen. I'm GonNa do it right. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do everything I'm GonNa let it loose and I'm GonNa do the after Party and I have not stay up until I think we got back to my hotel room like five thirty. Am Yeah I HAVE NOT STAYED UP LA in long long time but well well worth it as you know like. You said you've into one. It's just the fun you have the stories that are going around. It's just it's a blast and then there's others who weren't I guess part of the broadcast show up. Did anybody so you got any names that people that just showed up and hung out. I'm not a big namedrop already. Dropped her name to get the Gig John. Jj that's that's next level right there. I appreciate that we just WANNA I. Don't WanNa just WANNA get in the behind the velvet ropes with the JJ. That's all you know just trying to get that I mean but you gotta get behind rope good did you. I guess recuperating time to watch the Super Bowl did you take that game in JJ. So I I flew back to Houston on Sunday so I was flying during pretty much the first half so I got back to my house sometime in the second half and I caught I caught the ending of it got fourth quarter so I got to see that. So what do you think of the narrative that the niners she to run more. I guess you're you're probably hearing all the all the the second guessing of it. What what did you think of the ending and and somebody who's been on If you will the the wrong wrong end of a of a of a mahomes run Or in a way knowing how uneven flow of a game just works out the way it just works out. I wonder what your two cents on the subject. Are I mean I. I've always had this. You you know as an athlete and as you play stuff. It's it is so easy to say what you should have have done or even when you're sitting at home watching the game as happening what you should do in this situation. How team should play? The truth is nobody is out there. Unless you've unless you're a former coach or a former player who's been in that situation in that environment with that level of pressure on you and everything. I don't think anybody can sit here and say what you would have done what you wouldn't it done or how you should have played I'm sure they're doing that in their heads as they sit now A couple of days later I mean just like we did with our game a few weeks ago. You know you sit there and next couple well days you look at it and you're like what should we have done different. How could we have done what she even? Then you don't have the answers. I mean yeah should they have not given up points for instance should they have so much. I wish it broke down like that. And then the last one for you thought of you honors night when it saw last Campbell get up there the big man. He's going to have that patch on his chest. Now like you have Walter Payton Man of the year What's going on with you and your your works down there in Houston eastern that we can Know about get involved in all that good stuff. What do you got I I I WANNA say drastically. I texted him at night. He's truly deserving he's he's one of the great guys in the game and I love the way he plays. I love his attitude. I love seeing them every time. Whether it's the off season after the game he has such a big smile and he's just such sure great human being and a great guy. I'm very excited and honored to welcome into that fraternity because he truly does deserve it. with me The foundation is still still chugging along. I believe in Last month you know we just we give people updates as we go on on our twitter page on Hauer distributing the money and I think in the month of January we donated like a hundred and twenty five thousand dollars to schools throughout the country. And we just keep going quarter-by-quarter and trying to help as many kids recant across the country. Jj happy when. I reached out to you when I heard you got. SNL I mean that is that's his. I mean that's the pinnacle brother I mean that is when you're you're a sports star and you're an athlete and you want to just have some fun and SNL reaches out to you. That's that's it. I mean that's amazing and you crushed it. So congrats congrats thank you. Thank you my friend. I appreciate your having me on and I'll be seventy wonderful okay So I can put this Mago.

Get new episodes of showman's every Thursday on spotify apple podcasts and PODCASTS ONE DOT com. Welcome back to the richeisenshow fun. Chat with J.. J. Watt right there and I turn to my right a guy I've known for for a while but I haven't seen in quite some time and when you're you're his name started popping up on our instagram feed. We're like let's get them in just a reconnect. These is a creator writer producer of the great hit series entourage. He is Doug Ellin get to see a sir. Thanks for having me. So let's get right into this. How how did how did entourage come to be? That was really Walberg story in a way. How did you get based His manager was my manager. Steve Levinson on what the college with came to me. Said we want to do a show about a movie star friends right. I hated the idea I I did. I thought it sounded ridiculous. And then Steve Levins and said to me is like you'll figure it out and I went home. I didn't really have job anyway. So I started thinking about it and Figured it out. So what didn't you like about the idea to begin with I you know I don't live that kind of like sycophantic lifestyle living with somebody else so I just didn't really see in what I what I took home to myself. figure out how to make it a family and give everybody some type of purpose driver the assistant whatever so right and so when did Walberg comment was he. There was always him to begin in the beginning. It was mark and Steve. They came to me so there really wasn't much of anything else to go on just like we wanted to show about a movie started as friends right and we started looking for Mark Guy which was impossible to find and ultimately it started shifting and I switched it to New York and started modeling modeling in a little bit on my friends. Also okay and so When was the first time you met Walberg? When was that well? I knew more for years before okay so it was the first time you met China. I think the first time I met him actually had dinner with him at a place called. Georgios somebody A friend of mine was informatics town and said these two young up and coming stars ars right somehow. I had dinner with mark and Leonardo Di Caprio when I was twenty one and you know I have no idea how that even happened but It's been dinner. I want to know what happened after I went home. My God knows what they did but I was this in the day when when Walberg was adding ordering extra bread to the table he must man. I can't believe his routine is just insane. I mean it's unreal like we don't get up at shower or two in the morning for there are three. Am Very driven. I guess so so And so the Guest Star List on that show was absurd so at some point when did did you finally start getting calls where people like. I want to be on that show like season two or three. I mean the first season it was impossible to get anybody you know even mark I didn't know if he was gonNA show up he was in the pilot and I had no idea if he was actually coming or not serious. Yeah we had one actor who did not show up for the pilot and Adrian had start calling friends to get somebody down so it started out very Taliban then by the end that was great. I'm sure I'm sure you got called so them. Which is the call that you got? That was particularly like okay now. I know where we've made. It was that Lebron probably you know and I got a call the bronze dish shell when I meet him. And Lebron says you know this is my e. This is my drama. This is my turtle is very cool. So what did he say. No kidding all right now How did Brady wind up on? That show will brady which is kind of a sad tragic story out brady of on the show. The ending obviously his triumphant and amazing but after the giants win the Super Bowl. And I'm a die hard giants fan man and calls me. Says he wants to be on the show and I said well. Then you're on the shell. I write a script script which you know it may look like this is no big deal easy but I write a script with Eli and then his agent at one point called Peyton will do it too so I write this whole script and then we're getting ready to shoot about six months later and I I called ally on his cell how he called me and he doesn't return my call and then I had jerry calm has returned. Jerry call so Ferrara Ferrara call. I brought in the big guns and then I'm in the office and I'm losing my mind because now we're like a couple of weeks out and I have two in. You know brothers who there was some comedy relating Vincent Drama Them. I'm like I don't know how to replace these guys like we get the sharp brothers. I don't know though and And mark happened to be at the office and I'm I'm I was tend to be a little crazy. It was freaky now. Things around the Osmar. What's the problem marks Commas coolest guy? I'm like Ah I don't know what to do. We have no one to shoot this. He's like what if me and Brady do it. I was like well that worked with that. And you know what what of the you know to me Tom. Brady is honestly one of the one of the nicest guys but also the way he carries himself and when we shot. You don't usually give like these stars these seven. Am Call all times you try to make it a little easier but top shows up at seven am. It's like forty degrees at the golf course that was going to. He walks out grabs a club and takes one and hits it to twenty and misses the whole won by like here and that was complete movie star epic moments. So he's born to do it just in any single damn anything. He puts his mind to. Yeah so so. He's on the show. 'CAUSE Walberg S- like I'll save you. I'll save the whole show. I got it I got the script before you AH Brady and Radi importantly guys ally bit of a big time diva Patriots Fan Dan over there who wants to try and you know one of the great you know interviews that I have on tape somewheres mark in Brady and they asked why Eli was on the show and mark gave an answer that would never ever be able to be put out there. But Tom's face was dying. And you know it's tough. It was tough for me as a giants Fan But since then you know I'm still giants fan but I've always rooted you know Julian show the you know and Did it so I I root for them. You're partial to people who who Doug Allen here on the rich Eisen show. So how did you become a giants fan. I became a giants Fan I was said on the radio. Portion portioned earlier. I was a Ram Fan because the movie something for Joey which was about John capillarity in a sad movie that makes Young men cry which I did and I was Iran's fan but then Like twelve years old. I think and my brother's going to college in Pittsburgh and I'm in the hotel there and the giants are staying there and playing asteroids and the team walks in and this one guy comes up and says can I play with your kid. I was like sure and I'm playing with him. He's a great guy we're hanging out and I know he's a player I asked for autographs. And it's Lt and that was his rookie year. I I really didn't know who he was but I'm going to be my guy I'm GonNa follow him and you know and it all came full circle twenty years later and lt follows me on twitter. I was like wow hi. This is This is a pretty great so hold on. So you're playing asteroids just decide you know what I want you you know. Pass the time where they were they play in the steelers. preseason so and this is I guess I'm trying to think what year that is gonna be like late Seventies. Maybe I'm in Garland eight to twelve fifty two okay. So we're eighty eighty one so jeeze asteroids is pretty average is amazing that I mean I guess another one so the other way to put it as well so I was playing space invaders with Phil Simms. I'm not trying to drop by the way we're in this town. I'm asking you these this questions and it's just amazing how these out in Pittsburgh this is not a Hollywood story. And I'm just a kid you know didn't know who he was at the time. And you know now. He obviously became who became. So it's pretty wild and your from Long Island. Which makes you an islanders fan right? I grew up again. I'm fifty some You and I aren't too damn far apart So I grew up a ranger fan and I loved the Rangers. In in the mid to late seventies Rondo gay with flowing hair. I hated him and Barry Barry Beck and all hit every one of them wearing my pod Vin in Jersey in Madison Square Garden and having things thrown at me when I was nine or ten years that makes it tougher. Tougher and tougher made me who I I remember watching the drive live for five on my local whatever cable. TV like might be met go had it or something like that and I just remember I hated the island. I hated Nice Gym. I hated Bossie. I hated Smith Billy. Smith was the big hunk golden dirty filthy dirty. I thought and I was. It was at the game nystrom scores in the last last row of the Nassau Coliseum and this was by far the greatest sports moment I've ever experienced. Come come on I it was. I mean I was such as I said earlier I could name pretty much every name and number of everyone on that team okay You know so if you you know. Twenty Three's nystroem edged from obviously you said Bossy twenty two and Smith thirty one but I I mean like there's no memory that's even close to that and the feeling when they won you know I I always I want for. My kids was to be able to experience that when they grow up and it doesn't seem to me that the passion is as much anymore as it was when you lived and breathed these teams. You know that kind of they lived in the community. See Him around and it was just very cool around around. Now you'd be around Zero Ben's Delicatessen Gord Lane City. There you are you serious. I mean I don't know that I saw Gordy lane accident but I saw some bread. Ah Twenty four by them so have you followed them the Brooklyn or you still an islanders. Fan Fan I couldn't name everyone's number today Dad. What is your throne asked me but I I still a very big and I mean you know I it's It's amazing seen them in Brooklyn now. The first first concert I ever went to was at Nassau Coliseum to Joel I. I'll be honest with you. I will always shooting everybody straight here Kinda. I wish it was billy Joel. Who's now as you know the official singles Madison Square Garden You know It was Chicago so good show of the well. I mean it was. It was the of the hard habit to break Terry. Slow Song I. It isn't a comedian opened opened up. My God. Bless my late. Dad drove drove our ashes all the way out there and he drove around for like three hours picked us up and drove back. The cell phones like like this is back when we're calling sports phone to find out the scores kids taking overall C. Whatever it's very said I said I would change? My parents would never let me do the stuff that goes on l.. Man Doug Allen here on the richeisenshow okay so that your Knicks expand now writing Knicks Fan and produced the documentary on the sixty nine to seventy two knicks. You know I I. I don't WanNa put you in a difficult position because I'm very very critical of the owner. I put one in. I hate his guts. You sign can you not I mean it's it's horrible to see this and and when you think you know that the Knicks are now this destination that no one will go to when they have the money. It's mind boggling. I mean you know I I you know. Baron Davis is a friend of mine and when when baron had a minute with Barron aren came into the guard and all of a sudden you felt the whole. NBA To me feels better when the knicks are good and to see that no one will even go there now. Is It's tragic. It's just as is is the best place in the world and you know it's where I grew up. It's where I saw you know Bernard King do his thing Jerry and Bernard King Jersey in the pilot because Bernard King was my light idol. I work my turnaround. Jump shot everyday in my. Oh my God wasn't quite wasn't quite Bernard went back to back fifty points in Texas and then there was the Pistons playoff series. Where is eight and him? Basically played one on one They I forgot what the total number was. Twenty four points in a row but Bernard was the guy what what a shame that his knee blew up terrible and now obviously that did lead to Patrick Ewing position that nickel get up or to have an envelope. I have some whatever pink exactly but I mean they played. I think just a handful of games together. Yeah Ewing and Bernard King would have been unbelievable. Unbelievable and Bernard is so underrated as you know really one of the great players of all time of all time. There's no doubt about it so that's where I flew that. That's where I I I I fell in love with basketball. Fell in love with the next just even to this day I haven't been to the garden years and and again I'm not making too big of a deal of it but I have been so critical of the sky. Dolan that we have a Dolan wormhole there anytime I mentioned him. I just devolve into anything even and again the NFL draft is coming. Vegas and it's going to be amazing and I say the reason why in last year in Nashville and the year before In Philadelphia Alfie and it looks amazing in the person you have to thank for that as James Dolan because he alienated the NFL out of out of the Radio City Music Hall. I mean I will bring anything Kevin Durant. It's not there I was. I was a hundred percent certain only because if Dolan thought it was going to happen and not to make fun. But it's like that anyone they want to go to the nets of the New York Knicks. I mean it's just it's the damage vote doesn't matter it doesn't it doesn't wherever certain generation but the Barclays Mark Lease Center is a beautiful spot Brooklyn is just across it is in Brooklyn is a great place but you still would think you WANNA put on that New York Knicks. Jersey like the Lakers. You would think you'd want want to be in that and you want to win a championship for them but obviously not I guess does Janas feel that way. Because that's the that's no way you're going to. I don't think so either. I don't know that we were talking about Kenny Smith coming in as the GM they bring Mark Jackson and Kenny Smith. Maybe things could change for us because we remember that. Oh my oh my gosh. So now I know Good to see a show absolutely absolutely Mr Doug Ellin on both twitter and Instagram Yeah 'cause I I wonder if Jerry I WANNA put them in a tough spot talking about the Knicks and being critical and stuff like that but well he gets the good seats so he does so he does get good seats Thanks for coming on today. Really predict back on anytime at Mr. Doug Gallon both twitter and instagram. Eight four four two four riches the number to the dial when we come back. We see if there's I think that speeches have just begun. There looks like a WHO. I don't know who this individual is Mitch Holt. That's up at the microphone. Yeah the the voice of Kansas City chiefs. He does not look like Andy Reid Worry about that. I'm okay. That's coming up next on the rich Eisen show.

Now we're we're laughing because we're seeing the the the scenes from Kansas City right now and and they're singing the national anthem right now before the speeches. Why not and Bam loosened the parade began at nine thirty. It's two hours now of just non stop. I mean these videos stations been posting. He is so hammered. Well the the the photograph of day is because they're you know the chiefs have been riding atop double decker buses and the photograph of the day's as mahomes out of the back corner of double decker bus pouring a beer out down atop Kelsey. WHO's down on the on the street street and Kelsey got the goggles on lifting up and he's trying to pour directly in his mouth as you might imagine? Despite how accurate mahomes is as a thrower and not all of it's going into the intended target and it's already been established that Chelsea's wearing a twenty thousand dollar coat who've so the most valuable person all of Kansas City Missouri or Kansas. I imagine because you've got you've got really you've got a really you know. Spread it out is is whatever dry cleaner that's going to be in possession of Chelsea's code after this parade. This requires this. This is going to require some deep cleaning or or he just takes it back to the store and return this. Can you imagine if somebody gave it to him. Just because they knew that it was going to be publicized. You gotta get back cleaned. I mean if that's a gift from the they gotTa know that eight my back cash goods. Yeah needs to know that that's not coming Bassel. Nobody's nobody nobody is spoken yet. So I imagined we know who the the the speakers will probably be Clarken read right probably they be Mahomes Kelsey. We'll speak our speakers will. Frank Clark's gotTa Have Speakers Learn Matthew eappen on average speakers role who else speakers occurs role but one of the offensive lineman. Go up there. Because you know usually don't do that sort of stuff maybe Mitchell Schwartz up. There could be going to be. They all look rack. I mean I think Mahomes tweeted out this morning. He his voice is already shot from Disneyland. He was in Disney. The Disney shop from Disneyland. How this new World New World War all day yesterday David Arkansas. There's been hanging out for much of the hour. What's up David? Hey rich how's it going. How you been served as going on I've been good Aside from the niners Susan That was kind of painful Eh But At the beginning of the season you had a you had a pick the niners hot take to go to the Super Bowl. minuting kind of flipped lipped scripts there I was just wondering if there's something you saw the niners that she didn't like more. Were you just hypnotized by magic mahomes. No well I I don't think I have. I said that they were going to be taken to the Super Bowl. I had them as a sleeper team. which is a way of somebody in my position to say that this team would perform well or better than expected and not have to stake? Just how well. It's kind of my way of trying to sound smart without trying to give myself the risk of looking stupid. You understand what I mean whenever you hear somebody say what. What a sleeper team is? They never basically then go out and say how how deep they've been asleep or how awake they will be. You know what I'm saying. Yes Sir you know but but I do love and thank you David appreciate it. I mean look I set it. Jimmy Johnson apparently again. Because I was going against that Fox pregame show apparently Jimmy Johnson said on Fox. pregame what I said on Thursday show that caused Brockman and say well about Mahomes as the most talented player in the history of the Super Bowl at the position of talented quarterbacks have been there John Elway and is an. NFL One one hundred all time team member with the ability to run. Throw to and Mahomes to me is just as talented and we can make this argument and it took elway forever and a day to win a super bowl and mahomes way ahead of the game and and I know that I was nine minutes away from being wrong body. Those nine minutes proved me right and we had a caller earlier and say how come teams like the Titans got out of their run game. How calm team like the forty niners didn't run it more than they did? Well when you think that you've got a score a bunch of points maybe get a little bit spooked. I don't know or you tip your cap to the other teams defense. That's one two and again. It's amazing how it works. We don't remember who lost years from now. I mean you can kind of look it up but what you remember who won right and you don't remember how things go down. You just remember how could have been right and we were if what Garoppolo just put a little more air underneath the ball and he did connect with Emmanuel Sanders Sanders. And we'd be talking. How do the chiefs defense let Emmanuel Sanders get behind two guys with the game on? How did that happen? And what a throw by Garoppolo who is now a super bowl champion. While we're wondering about Tom Brady's future and we would be talking all about Emmanuel Sanders at his advanced age coming back from an Achilles injury and put an all online and getting out of Denver. And what a move move it would be by John Lynch to make that deadline trade for the guy who somehow at that advanced age came back from an Achilles injury and scored the touchdown to win Super Bowl. Fifty four on what could have been maybe one of the longest past place to ever win a game of that magnitude at that point in time on the clock of a team that had been up open. Enrollment the League. I mean like honestly we and then we would be talking about that play for the next twenty five years or forevermore but it was down down gives them the lead. There's a minute and a half homes timeout. Yeah and we'd be talking about one of the greatest finish in the history of the Super Bowl right. Water COULDA SHOULDA PT. I had a really fun tossup debate yesterday who has better hall of fame credentials right now ally or mahomes come on. I mean really was this. Was this really other some yesterday Eh. Who has better fame credentials? Eli Are Mahomes. Yeah I mean when you have these arguments you've got to say that Mahomes doesn't have the long no no snap left in them right right like it's over now right now right mahomes just decided you know what I'm GonNa be the first guy to be a super super bowl. MVP LEAH MVP of the National Football League. And I WANNA play. Baseball ran do that for the world series right now and I WANNA do. I'm still young so here I come Detroit Tigers Right. Did you see tweet from the Detroit. Tigers 'cause they drafted him years ago. Oh do they still on his wrightson sir. Probably owners writer who does own his rights but they basically said congratulations to Patrick. MAHOMES are thirty seventh round draft two thousand fourteen. Yeah Ah congratulations to our two thousand. Fourteen thirty seventh round draft. Pick Patrick homes on winning his B- Football game. Whoever came up with that in the Detroit Tigers Social Social Media Department well-done solid to them even then no one twice? Why are we? Why are we the greatest team of all time time? Ally never through fifty touchdowns in a year was never. MVP never never was great in the regular season. PATS fans. Don't you you guys. How do they answer that question on? They just kind of laughed and said of course it's easy y because of longevity but the fact that it was even a topic I think speaks to how great we think Mahomes uh-huh is going to be so The UEFA Champions League gearing up for star-studded round at sixteen stream Liverpool versus Athletico Madrid psg es G.

REShow: Leonard Fournette & Barry Sanders - hour 3 (01-13-21)

"James harden definitely had a pregame meal. Yeah sorry this is the rich eisen show. I can't do. I can't do this anymore. He's not from the rich eisen. Show studio in los angeles situations. Kersey of the rich eisen show earlier on the show. Espn buffalo bills analyst. Eric would host of good morning football. Kyle brandt coming shantha. Bay buccaneers running back leonard. Fournette pro football hall of famer barry sanders and now you're rich is number. Three of the rich eisen show is on the air. We jammed all of our rushing yards into our number three because leonard fournette about to join us before taking on a saints defense that held tampa to less than ten yards rushing the last time they faced each other barry sanders pro football famer one of the best to ever run it and and play it. He'll be joining us in this hour as well. kyle brandon. Eric would formerly of Well i guess formerly of soap operas in the buffalo bills respectively box myself properly by saying the word formerly eric formerly of the bills. Now with espn cobb. Rent formerly of young in the restless. Now with a good morning football is that was. That was a days. Pardon me pardon me as the sand through the hourglass speaking of soap operas the city of houston. That's how we started the show today where We know george springer is probably not come back to the astros. Deshaun watson is suddenly out there as being a disgruntled employee number one of the houston texans organization and james harden last night after losing a blow out to the lakers That it. Just it's not going to be it's not gonna work current contract not gonna work. That's it thank you getting up from podium and out john wall also saying you know. Hey it's only been nine games. There are some people around here are just not buying in. He's one of those people. Think this is gonna wind up. That was our one hour three. Chris brockman you got some breaking news right here on the rich eisen show strong yes. According to shams over at the athletic along with sam amick Two teams are front. Runners shared acquire. James harden looks like brooklyn and philadelphia in the mix a nets package would feature for future first round picks and three future pick swaps. Meanwhile philadelphia The package would center around. Ben simmons as well as picks and cetera. All right. lots of one. Toronto have also expressed of course toronto's like the king of raising their hand and they keep winning games all right so james harden on the move the ball. He wants out and you can't keep him around anymore and he guesses. I don't know we'll. We'll put a pin in that. Because again like i said we've jammed all of our rushing yards into our number three of the program Barry sanders pro. Football hall of famer will be joining us Later on in this hour but right now we turn to the phone lines and welcome back to the rich eisen. Show from the tampa. Bay buccaneers getting set to tote the rock in the superdome leonard for net. However you leonard. I'm good. I am doing fine. What a huge game. This is this week. Leonard what's it like in your locker room in your world right now for this one Nine i mean we just getting ready for a dog fight. You know you know. They have chemistry complain. Which while so into restaurant in come in Do our job. I have faith in our game plan. What's it like having a front row seat for brady and a big week like this. What's it like. Walk me through it conflict. I notice tom brady competent. You know he's he's been any type of game before he's been in these situations multiple times A guy like myself and a couple of other guys offense you know we all been in the playoff games and we know how how easy it is to get off so you know the mental things. The small things stand focused and mine clear you know. Get into well. I know definitely. You have been there before in the playoffs. You've had huge games like say In heinz field by one in the pittsburgh steelers And also you've been in a championship game against tom brady The reason why. I just bring it up is just. Have you seen a difference in brady. I guess would be the way to to ask it based on what you saw over the i seventeen weeks the season or Handful the the lion share of the season where you were there To the last couple of weeks. Leonard have you noticed a think i think the same you know. You always have that laser focus. He knows how important each and every game is as always. What i think is different for me. Being team may now and just in how confident he is back there. You even when we're down or we're in tough situations you know. He doesn't lose this poise. He's he remains the same you know. And that's what i love about him. And that's what i love about them back with them helping them and protecting them. So how is things turned around. Since you're by leonard. I mean it's it. It looks different. Obviously the results are clearly different and The the consistency is far more efficient to say the least what happened. What happened here. do you think I mean something. I can't really Answer you know what i mean. But there's no like Things happen for a reason. You know i can say that and my job is to always be ready stay writing. And that's that's that's the mentality here. You know one mind man up so just coming in you know understanding the playbook a hundred percent fully and being company in my work and also don't have any doubts when i feel that test i mean we have. We have a great team here. Great players understand we can win and we just have to put the things together as about it. Well i guess. I was meaning as a team. Leonard obviously i know you individually. There's a couple of weeks where you didn't see the field and then you you got in and became a very important part of this team in a manner that we hadn't seen i guess in the previous weeks. I i just. I guess i mean Offensively as a whole where things were working and you could easily say. Hey you know. I'm playing that's fine too. That's what i was just wondering here. You know. I think. I think chemistry it takes time. You know i mean mean Like i said last week with first playoff game together. You know the saints. They've been they've been with each other for some years now and they understand and they have a chemistry. And i think we're we're we're finally getting to the game to their right now a bit by bit. We not fully there. But it's coming together as you can see from the last couple of games and we have stateful straddle pedal to the metal man. I'm not gonna lie to you. You know is different and we're ready. I can say that we're going to be ready. It takes time. You know it's gonna be it's gonna be a big one for us. It's going to be one. look leonard. obviously you've got A lot of nfl road ahead of you. And you've already had some extreme success in this league right. You've you've been there and done that but this is giving me something you tell your family members about this game. I mean we will never see a game where again Quarterbacks are gonna come in with the resumes that these two are coming in this is this is this is it. You know you're right about that. too great quarterbacks To hundred famous when they retired they have the resume Just how they have carried yourself through their careers you know this tremendous and to be on the stage diplo. Those two guys offer a young guy like me is no better feeling god and try to perform better as them or up to part with them by doing my job. What about leonard fournette. Here on the rich eisen show a few minutes left with a tampa bay. Buccaneer running back In the previous game You had seven touches. Just one rush mean. Obviously the the scoreboard had a lot to do with that. But what what are you. Gleaning from. That loss On your home turf against this team going in like what. Have you taken out of that. That you've seen on film and you're you're using this week anything or you buried that back in the day. What are you got. You got a bear it but you know some way somehow spill the back of your mind embarrassed us on national tv you know and as a lead as competitor you know it kind of stains you know you wish you could be a lot a lot of things better than what you did but right now on to the next you know. We moved on from that. But we just we just know that feeling that they gave us at the at the end of the game and how we so so we just not china feel that no more to be honest and you must feel fresh right. This is fresh. As you've ever felt for playoff run it is usually around this time. I'll probably have three hundred seven carries right now. I'm one hundred and one. So i feel way better than i mean that. That's good you've got to feel really. I mean this is this is it. I'm i'm jumping out of my skin. I can only matter what what you must be feeling like Going into this one. If you don't mind especially since you are going back to the state of louisiana leonard all just get along what this all means. I'm excited you know ban from new orleans plan. Lsu i know fact everyone's on as a law fan on a saints fan until Spike is like this is kinda putting everybody a mix because they wanna they wanna root for me. But i think also i mean so It's exciting exciting to be back home. Play plan my home and a ready go his so so are you. Are you In advanced telling members of your friends and family Team forget Sorry events are you telling them that in advance I'm just. I'm just letting them know i don't want the negative i turn the phone off right. Turn your phone off right. That's for sure definitely edwin they know. Do not call my phone talking about this thing talking about football. We talk about like hotline going. I don't know about football. Because i know down. They root for me. But they're going to like I have a friend named peck. He says she always say this. I wish i was the best new york giants fan. You wish. i wish it was two hundred dollars to lose by one point against the giants. You know that almost happened. Actually that was. That was a tight one part of the whole season there. But i was you know. So yeah so you can tell your friends. I mean you know who dat is but Call be quiet. That's amazing this is it. Well look leonard. I am genuinely fired up for this one like i. I have already let everybody know that. My phone's going to be all for this to like this is this is it like. There's there's a specific reason why this game was saved for the final game of the weekend like it. I obviously obviously the The the attention from the quarterbacks merits at but this is also a dynamite Matchup and the fact that you you're gonna have center stage in it too. It's just. I'm hyped for you. Leonard always appreciate your rich. Always you know when edifice college man. I appreciate it. Thanks for the call leonard. You'd be well we'll chat again soon. Good luck let's do it down the road. That's leonard fournette. We haven't chattan since that Second to last year and everyone's thought he should sit out his final. You remember that is finally. you're eligible. I was one of those people like. What's what's the point. Gaza is going to be who for him there in louisiana and that super that dome. I love that. He's telling old friends. Don't even call me. I don't wanna talk about life and not football. Brady's nice and lose to did you see His me on his On his twitter and his instagram. Go history channel goad onto social media. The the the history channel on. I think somebody sent out for a while. Someone has we applied to it. Someone was like every other games need to be on the history of every brady brees game right every game between these two guys. 'cause i told you this year i mean earlier this week. I told you this week that it's breaking the record for every i everything. It's going to break the record for any record of combined. Quarterbacks coming into a playoff game don't even look it up just it will never be touched and we said mahomes was drafted in twenty seventeen. So who from twenty lamar. Well here's the thing too is that you can't be lamar josh allen or baker mayfield. A can't be any of these guys. Because if alan mayfield and lamar play as long as breeze did to the brady of you know mahomes is brady that maybe there matchup records would be equal to that right but the aspect of brady vs brees that is particularly unique. Outside of all of their combined. Records is that they've never played against each other in a playoff game. The saints and patriots did not meet up owning in every other year in which the patriots made the super bowl. The saints fell short. Came awfully close with pass. Interference call on the rams. We almost got brady vs brees in that super bowl instead it was rams versus patriots right so we may eventually see it. But here's the history channel history awaits. And i'll just say this gotta brady mazing again. It's just like brady. Just put a little more in his in his hair and then got got the beard going like You know like a a little. What are we gonna look little nick. Nolte moses moses and then you know again i i speak on behalf of the ball brotherhood. Wh gives with the with with brees. You know we we. We talk about his future. Is the debt from family ties. That's exactly you know what i'm saying. That's michael gross. The michael gross. That's the way he views breeze agent mr and and with some of those aging spots around the forehead and up top and top. Thomas just like me. He's like far figure out. Tom kind of looks like zeus a little bit. Let's go picture. He's someone who's did instagram. It and tweet it out. I'm looks amazing. Like like that sixty. I mean the best social media team. Tom tom brady down. Well i mean will smith as the best social and that's your tom. Brady's is i guess he's talking about sports sports. I just found that he went breezy. That's that's how ages breezed. But he's he ages perfect perfectly eight four four two four riches the number when we come back barry sanders will join us. He's a fine wine himself right there again.

Barry sanders here on a richeisenshow harry. Barry rich will the going see. I'm great if only you had a little james harden you back in the day you could just you know you could have just gone up to the microphone after a loss. And just say it's not gonna work with wayne fonts. I'm out you know. And and does what would have happened right barry. We just don't have the players guys you know have had a player. We don't have a coach. No may yeah. That's a lot that you're right man. i think I think the handwriting's on the wall. Yeah i mean it. Certainly i mean did did you ever. I know we always go there. And i'm sure you're sick and tired of talking about it but you know i hope you don't mind. Did you ever think of doing that back in your day with the lines like like how. How close did you come. Publicly to calling everything out As opposed to just saying you're done playing. How close did you do that. Barry that would have been a reach for me Rich because i just My mind was somewhere else. man. I mean At the very end i just was was. I'm playing so. I knew it was time to move on but before that i was preoccupied with just playing the game and and Trying to be great. At what i what i did and try trying to. You know really bill. Detroit into and You know when we got halfway there but but yeah that would have been that would have been reached for me because my my mind just wasn't there. I mean i i love i love playing the game and it didn't it almost didn't matter What stadium you put me and especially initially As as a young player. I was just excited to be on the field You know and so And then i like being detroit sweet because there was a chance to to turn it into a winner right I knew we didn't inherit a winner but it was. It was a a chance to change the narrative. You know we had the big the big thing back and restore the roar. You know so. That's what i was trying to do. Certainly since you didn't say much and you you hardly ever spoke a crossword like that. It would resonated. I don't know if you saw on twitter yesterday. What andre johnson tweet out. Did you see that barry. Did you see something to the fact of just support. What supporting watson gam and and calling on the owner basically you know not by name but say that some of the organization for some reason can't seem to see what's going on that. I hope to sean. We'll stand my ground. I mean you know. Andre i mean my gosh. He never says anything and that was out of nowhere right there. I mean that's that's something else out of hand. Yeah no i. I think for him It must he must really be fed up with it for him to to make that kind of a statement You know and so when you worn the uniform you know you Is a different level of care you know and and an attachment that you have with organization and so and so yeah i i think Some guys it's hard you know you can't stand by And watching organization do things that you believe are are against Their best interest. I guess so. So yeah i mean some. Some are just compelled to speak out and i think that's what andrea yesterday canary sanders. Pro football hall of famer. You're part of the process of putting pieces back together for the lines right now. Right barry redone. You're hoping that that's right. I mean i'm i'm i'm just sort of You know sort of support role. Maybe you could say i mean. Obviously sheila she's tapped chris spielman To pretty much make the call um interview coaches and and that kind of thing And so And so i mean In some small way. I mean involved in the process You know and. Chris has a great feel for the game. He's been around the game. I always for many years and and being in the booth you know you. You understand who. The actors are You know from a coaching standpoint. And and and that thing so he's he's working diligently on it You know and and i'm you know i'm just sort of On the fringes. I guess you could say sure And as a some support and maybe the bounce ideas off of So yeah that's correct so let me bounce off of you. Who do you think not. You know if you don't want to name names that's fine. But the type of coach the necessary traits for the lions right here and right now in twenty twenty one would be what who bury some some good candidates out there they've already Christmas our view several. But i think going back to kind of Kind of our my theory coming in as as a lie and now someone who says i love the opportunity of trying to make detroit a winner who seems to have an opportunity who Who has a proven record group. You know you have to be able to command that locker room You know because you have all different types of in there A lot of guys. Maybe who haven't won And so you. You really have to be able to challenge that group of men To really prioritize Certain things that they haven't prioritized before you know so that's always Difficult and so And so i think some of those things Or what. Chris was looking for. And what i guess I would say it'd be good qualities. someone who really can can make command that locker room. And and obviously you gotta you gotta know your xs and os But but you have to be someone who people don't mind following You know and so and so. Yeah i mean Hopefully that's that's the kind of what what will end up with You know and. I think. Chris has a great process in place And and You know so. We have a lot of confidence in them. And we're looking forward to decisions that the christian and ultimately sheila comes up. Do you think chris should If you were. He made it a requirement of every coach coming in that. They make sure that their plan involves matthew stafford barry sanders. I mean i would. I would assume that it does involve matthew but that's me I don't know how some Other coach may may see that situation But i think he's still playing at a tremendously high level Couldn't see him stay healthy last year And you know he. I mean He's just been. He's carried the franchise for many years and and And so you know just looking at it. i would assume he would be fit into someone's plans but but you know you can never say sure and you know again. I know it's somebody else's house but we were talking about houston texans and everything else on there and a name. That's being bandied about as a finalist. For the job who i think would be able to put some of this. Fire whatever's going on we don't know the extent of it with with watson out would be jim caldwell. I wonder what you thought. of jim and what he he might be able to bring to that equation from the outside looking in. Obviously as we are you're saying bring him back coast call. Will that call well. It looks like he's on the texans list right now that the tokyo no no no i i did say that. Initially i blush when patricia was fired and i got a whole bunch of crap from lions twitter and people saying that jim. Jim didn't beat teams. That had winning records and there were like nine guys on the field wants and things like that but You hearing his name a lot and to me certainly down in houston That wouldn't surprise me. I mean look at look at who. He's been around right. I mean you know look at You know what he was able to accomplish In indy you know. And then i believe he was on the staff with With the ravens when they won super bowl he was on the staff and even his. He has a winning record. I thought he did pretty well. In detroit You know and and so It takes time to build a winner. You know so so I think he can be somewhat proud of what he was able to accomplish. Here in detroit. you can. I guess you can always look at it in any angle you want but but yeah that doesn't surprise me that that You know the the texans Are are looking at him. I think he's a solid candidate. you know and and and really knows the game and and really so i wouldn't surprise me at all barry sanders here on behalf of Rocket mortgage super bowl square sweepstakes or will get to in a second best running back in the league today berry you get. I think i might ask you this every single time. You're on but i don't care. It seems to change every year right now. Who's the guy. Oh you mean besides derrick henry. Okay i mean i congratulations to derrick With a phenomenal year. I rich i believe they should have given him the ball. Thirty forty times Last weekend You know i think he's he's still always your best chance on offense You know so is in a tight game like that. He should have had many more carries I know baltimore. played them. tough What would you expect you know so but anyway but but but a solid group of running back in the play offs and and even this season you know you look at delvin cook season. He had and look at jonathan taylor You know even Even with tampa with with green bay the aaron jones. Kid i mean let's go on and on i mean look at cleveland with chubb and claim hunt and You know you look at kansas city. Even with how how. The fireworks. That offense is and edwards helaire and love bail. I mean it's just you know so so it was. It was a good year for running backs But obviously a great year for derrick henry. Yeah i mean two thousand yard. He if that game went into overtime barry he might have set the single game and single season rushing records in one day they was close. He was that good that day on style. Yeah fully absolutely no. I agree with you. I agree with you. I mean and his team needed every one of those yards to they also coudl him for stepping up. But i love that. She's other than derek. And it's amazing. When you look at cook. I know he missed a couple of games and and Jonathan taylor they weren't they were. They weren't even within seven hundred Cook was i think. Seven hundred yards behind henry and and And taylor was almost thousand yards behind him. That's how far henry was in front of the rest of the field this year. I mean you almost pretty much left. Mostly everyone else size cook you know. So but the guy In my opinion rich in the last couple of years you know he's been the most dominant player outside of patrick mahomes and maybe arguably rogers You know so. Hopefully he's been compensated with that. You know in that range of quarterback. Money i don't know what what is particularly ilias right He's certainly deserving of it and how many yards would you have gotten into season with a fullback. Very how many certain. Oh you mean back then back then with a with a good fullback. I think strong strong year year number. Your number about nine thousand hundred. Come on give. I wanted to give you to give me the number beyond eric dickerson. So the two of you could have a nice conversation the next time he saw each other. You know derek. Eric would be really appreciate. That would really be You know i but now. Hey look eric man you know just the one run or and i'm sure he loves he loves the see guys get coast but but not to quote exactly wherever he was on that week seventeen sunday. He was rooting for that game. Not to go to overtime. And he was probably jumping out of his seat when somebody knocked the ball out of henry sand because if he didn't fumble it on that draw a carry in the fourth quarter he was. He had fifty yards in front of him. He would set it. Maybe on that run alone on believe really is amazing. No absolutely man no. He has such a bright future. And i i wouldn't be surprised to see him. Go over two thousand Even again in the future on to be the only got to do it twice You know but. I think he's just that good so before i let you go berry. I'm reading a promo About this on. Nfl game day morning. Every single playoff weekend. Now and i plan to do it. I'm probably got a few more shows left in it. The rocket mortgage super bowl squares. Sweepstakes that free to enter right. Now i'll give you the floor on it. Very what he got from me on this. But yeah i mean it's just a chance for for fans to win a lot of cash The game and so Every score change during the game rocket mortgage is going to give away Fifty thousand dollars To fans and then the grand prize consists of A couple of fans having a chance to win half a million dollars. And so as i say before change field those touchdowns points whatever You have a chance to win. Fifty grand and so you can go to rocketmortgage squares dot com and find out more about it. As you mentioned it is free to play Great way to be involved in super bowl In addition to obviously had been the world's greatest game You know rocket mortgage is just building on what they did last year and and giving away One point seven million dollars to fans You know and so hopefully this year is even bigger and better than that so Jangled rocket mortgage squares dot com to find out more about it. Maybe you can be lucky winner. And i think everybody when they do that. They need to learn their analytics. Because as you mentioned you know it's every score change so if you've got the square that would hit if somebody tries the extra point and then they trot out gone for two down like say thirteen. You have no idea what the hell they're doing because of analytics and then suddenly that passes up your shot to win to square. I mean that that. That's that's gonna hurt. I'm not gonna lie. That's going to hurt. Everyone needs to understand the math and the analytics or something like this they do. But there's there's plenty of chances to win. though rich. every score changed a lot of great offenses in in the play offs. And and hopefully that'll that'll make it to the super bowl. The no defense of coordinators may not want to hear that yes. But you hope. The rams don't make i know. Hey barry thanks for the call appreciate it. Hope you were in your family or well. Healthy and i always love our chats. You take care be well. That's barry sanders. Right here on the rich eisen show at barry sanders on twitter instagram. Yeah so many people have the squares and they play for the super bowl. It's not but it's it's usually when the quarter ends the scored the quarter and right and they're right right and and then at the end of the game this sweepstakes it's for every score change. That's amazing so if you've got like the box seven six and somebody scores a touchdown seven six. Then you get. Because there's so many people they randomly pick your name and you can win fifty grand and then extra point goes through our seven seven. They do it again. But if you've got seven seven someone decides to go for two points now. Eight seven seven seven. Do you know what i mean like. It's there's a lot going on here. Elias senate for this right now. I mean there's a lot of action if you will. The language at the end of the half was in heaven. five hundred thousand dollars Goes towards purchase of haul. Hay hay hay last year in the first year the sweepstakes one point seven five million in prizes handed out to fifteen individuals.

We just showed Because houston is on the minds of everybody today right with hardening on the move. It looks like deshaun watson. Getting some twitter cover from andre johnson. Who doesn't ever talk let alone so we just showed some of our highlights from houston where we were in the convention center. We had our live set in the convention center that year. And jj watt was a guest and and lot. We brought up the fact that del tufo was saying that. The halftime act of of Lady gaga he went in saying he was going to get a selfie with her. And you said mike. You're going to get a selfie with her. Beacause you were going to be at the dress rehearsal and you were going to get her there. No that's what you said. No i said today the game. I wasn't gonna algorithm hurt so you said that. Excuse me all right. Maybe is totally revisionist. You said i would get. I was gonna get one with her. Like how in the hell are you going to do that. And you're like. I'm going to be at the dress rehearsal because i've got people it's because i want to get a pass and all the security i'm gonna go. I'm gonna find her at the dress for her. So and i'm gonna get herself go forward and then we found out the next day after rehearsal. Friday 'cause the russel's thursday night always yes for the super bowl. The thursday of the super bowl the the halftime at towns flies in town does a press conference said invariably is very awkward. Because there asked. Who's gonna win the game. And they don't know they don't care. Yeah prints did he did. He said i'm not doing a half-time concert press conference. I'm just gonna play music and it was amazing. That was in south florida and in my in two thousand nine. The famous purple rain halftime show as pardon me. Oh six because it rained in that game between the colts. The bears cats and dogs. But so friday. We go on air. Do you have a selfie. No i said no. You did not have it i because you did. You had an opportunity. I wanted to. We know that is revisionist again. I must be great lawyers. Said no. Because i've got a memory for this sort of thing some some things i don't remember but in terms of like i'm a walking encyclopedia for this. You argue. i'm a walking on most. The time is their first time. Second time. I don't know why i remember the stuff i do but i remember you said did not didn't happen on unfold way where he would have been too awkward for you too. I met hostile. Could no i met her. And i mentioned grand matter was introduced. Didn't take the picture. So i knew you didn't get. It was a little stretching. You said you were going to do it. On sunday and fox. Whatever i don't know. I don't care that me a feel i don't care who i would have been out there and i saw coming on a golf cart and i kinda screwed up and didn't go up and i had an opportunity and i said you know what i'm not gonna okay because i was unfortunately this stuff should have been left dead and buried but now it's been on earth but i am the selfie king upgrade. You did you. You said you were introduced her. Who do shoot her. The security guys. I know all the guy. They're all new york ex cops great the do all the halftime ones. Who got you out of trouble when you wrapped your police. Colorado now no stopping wrapped around a tree. Okay with my own car okay. Because they introduced her. I always meet. I always get up close. Always right there. You're like can. I take up do it because i thought i'd have a better opportunity after they perform the always walked the field. I'm like i messed up. I was so i'm sitting on. Nfl game day morning set in the corner of the end zone and energy stadium and icy her an entourage stroll out i saw i saw you get in. The truck never told me that i saw. They shot you with chris brockman. I know. Chris wants no part of anything right now. He can't even look at you rich. I knew you on you and mooch until you both got it on the truck. Yeah i did. I knew chris brockman. Yes or no okay. He doesn't don't care what he says. I got the selfie. I went up to her with with her. I think it was with her parents that they were surveying the field and she was lying on like the logo. Choose what she was going. Fuse go like full. Juju smith schuster. Before she was she was having a party out there and i went up to her. And i said you know. I'm the host of nfl network do you. I'm from staten island. Because you know we got back there so Do you mind if i get a selfie with. I got not one. But two and didn't say a word cultivated caper bundy's dish shown the shot look mc me. Raise my eyebrows. Basically saying look what i got right. She's fixing her glasses. He didn't wait for me to get ready. Are you proud of that self-esteem finish sense or score safe old chestnut. Say he is mild. You know was despite sophie. Spicer martin scorsese was for the beans. That's a good way to put it the beatings by riches that was that was all. You says he was all me. That's funny tastic. Money you want to piss. I cultivated that caper a scorsese movie phrase and check. It could happy happy with who says he wasn't happy. His security wasn't happy. The security at the chiltern firehouse in london wasn't happy. Waitstaff by wife was extremely displeased. But you've got your picture. I got my selfie. I got my selfie. And i got my time and that's all that matters. I'm not was happy. I was pleased. And that's at that moment automatic. Because you'd be kicking yourself right now has taken that is already introduced myself to him but purposely going for no apparent reason except just walked past introduced myself to him and and i learned since we had had that moment. Already you weren't a stranger. Saw him getting up walking out of the restaurant right behind my table that all you need to do is just stick my chair out like i was getting up. Oh are you leaving. i'm just getting up. I'm good to see you again. Would you mind if we take a selfie. And at that point in time people jumping out everywhere from thirty even even the even the waiter was just like sir sir and he just you know he said he said it's okay. That's nice because mardian. I are tight. Bonded founded close like starsky and hutch. So what i'm saying. Is that you mr selfie king self-proclaimed up by one hundred percent you are not because when it comes to it. It's too awkward. That couldn't do it. I couldn't do it the phone. Is there the gaga is there. That's it thought i had another day. Can i you know you can any king know that. No god live carpet. Selfie only one selfie. I regret more than the lady gaga is when i was at paul mccartney sitting behind me ringo starr jeff lynne joel mike. Why do you set him up. Like i didn't wanna do it. But i got a picture. That's what i mean when we were going through the blackout together. Simple super thome. Got to i got. I got my pokorny. Just regret to sell fees. But i didn't get rich was on stage singing person. I don't really go per third person. I don't really do it. Brockman can't even look at you right now. He can't even look at you because you don't even you can't even we don't care can't defend yourself. It's defenseless. i'm still just receiver. I should get fifteen yards. Maybe my boat selfie king to actual sports there's real quick mark stein saying houston really determined to complete the trade today s Leagues joysticks ray. Deal with philly. Incl- needs to include maxi and ben simmons shelby. Billy also wants. Pj tucker and return. Oh had his daryl more. That's his that's his. That's his guys. Pj haggling is over Which players and how many teams would feature in a trade continues the week sources say. Nothing's happened yet to dislodge the sixers from their long held position as the favorites. Tj gets the mets and the sixers may give it to me by the way. Is there any athlete. Brockman than mike enrich who deserve to pull a hard more than bury sanders did in his career and do it. Larry fitzgerald more than barry sanders. Larry at least went to a superbowl. Mike tomlin mike tomlin just so i can pay that off to says. It's reasonable to think that ben has a chance to come back as you're counting words but it's but it's reasonable reasonable is reasonable.

Now, it's a game. Now, it's a game tonight. You gain day night football game between the Seattle Seahawks. The Packers will discuss that on the program future. Pro football fan. Joe Thomas is on it. Anthony Anderson's coming in. That's gonna be a lot of fun. That's way, deepen our number three. I do wanna talk some NBA off the top right here. I mean game seven LeBron showed up for the first time in Los Angeles last night. I mean, it seems to be has been Biden miss time a little bit, but everybody figure out their roles figure out what to do figure out how to work it all together. You know, Tyson Chandler came in the middle of this experiment, so far and. In in. It was interesting last night game seven LeBron showed up by that. I mean, LeBron says I got this. I got this. Let me handle this thing and by handling it. He also dished out a ton of cyst last night and the offense for the Lakers from about the early second quarter on looked this Christmas. It's looked all here long. They're making threes. Well, they're making threes. But also looks like the kids know where to go when LeBron's thinking about where they should go. And also you played a lot of minutes last night. Lonzo ball. Well, he's gonna play a lot of minutes now with Rajon Rondo having broken his hand, and he's going to be out for the foreseeable future. Weeks is the word that Luke Walton news last night in the post, and like I said, it it looks like the kids know where LeBron's thinking they should go a lot of back door passes a lot of needles threaded by LeBron last night. And then he dropped in forty four any passes. We'll Chamberlain for the for in the all time scoring list right now. He's fifth. Top five includes LeBron James right now. And he's gonna catch 'em J in about a couple of months. He'll catch Michael Jordan with only Coby Karl Malone Kareem in front of him. And he might finish top five and assist as well. It's all said and done for LeBron last night was was it. They you could see like he needed Lakers needed it. They're heading on a road trip. They're going to go on a Florida swing and then finish in Cleveland in a brief their longest road stint of the year. They're going on the road, and they add a potent trailblazers team in home. They've taken to the first three from Portland they lost the first first opening night. And then they've taken the last two from Portland and Portland has four losses. Lakers multiple games over five hundred right now. Which they haven't been in three seasons. Eight and six eight and six good enough right now seventh seed in the Western Conference. That's about where we thought they'd finish. We as in you. And I I said they were no better than sixth best team in the west. Okay. Coming into the air. Well, we're we're in the minority. Then man, nobody thought that this was a playoff team come into the season except folks driving around here with their Laker flags in the back of their car, and the desert the desert really think desert had their win total at fifty right now. Like, I said the kids are figuring out and LeBron showed everyone in Los Angeles. Again. Like, I said for the first time where tonight's tonight tonight tonight tonight tonight where I'm gonna take it over. Folks around the country watching it on big on ESPN, and that is a playoff team in the west, certainly when so far, let's just hash. It all out got rockets and warriors tonight. The rockets did come off a big win over the Denver Nuggets. And we'll see what happens tonight. I can't wait to chat with Chris Haines of Yahoo. In in our number two. And Chris is the one who has had the most information on what? Draymond green said to Kevin Durant to earn the suspension from the team that didn't cause him a loss. But we'll see what it causes them. In terms of team chemistry moving forward. Christine's of Yahoo. I'll say the also the headline wants your muffs a little bit ghettos. Because you don't usually see headline that reads sources dream on green suspended after calling. Kevin durant? A bitch. In quotes. And now that's tonight. So we'll see what the warriors look like, I still think they wouldn't at all. We'll see what the rockets looked like tonight. The pelicans have been. Grinding their gears a little bit the Utah Jazz. What was that has been despite winning half their games right now a patently disappointed team? I thought coming into the season they had the best chance of being the two seed behind Golden State or even putting it all together and being the top seed taking over the rockets role this year. The Utah Jazz last night. Let me get the final score. Correct. Because do not adjust your set one eighteen sixty we do that. That's fifty base scored nine in the fourth quarter. That's the second worst loss and jazz franchise history. One time they lost by more than nineteen Seventy-nine. Don't worry with the will figure in last night's game. He's your old gen stat. Lakers better than the timber wolves. So far who have won two in a row now without Jimmy Butler who played for the Sixers for the first time last night and the Sixers lost to onto room cancer stop. I'm just getting ice. Sacramento's got the same record clippers only half game in front of them. Oklahoma city's one nine of ten so when they stumbled out of the gate they've clearly corrected himself. My point is the Lakers are just as good as any team right now five through what the end of the Western Conference right now. We'll see what happens with Rondo out. Lonzo is gonna get a ton of plank time, folks, all those Laker fans that think that Lonzo should be front and center right next. Lebron all you hear is like, well, how are they gonna fix this? With the young guys too, many young guys around LeBron too, many young guys trading. Brandon Ingram get him out. How about him in Lonzo? Keep coups Kouzmin. Get them out Draymond available. Get into Los Angeles. What it would take the get Draymond from the for the Lakers. Who would they have to give up? Well, first things first you gotta ask Twenty-three if he's cool with that. Right. On the business. End of the us started the super team, bro. Yeah. Retain wrote. Now, look at you have spot. You retired your shorts. Semi new pants on it. My new or semi nude semi new. What does that mean? They're old. Yeah. Well, what you just retired pair of cargo shorts. Twelve years old pretty much everything is semi new street. It's closer to new then old. I'm hoping that was just saying that who knows. Oh, man. But suppo- question today. Chris, okay. As we first reported here huge Thursday night football. Now, it's a game. What a what were we emphasize in that? Now, it's or game. I I prefer. Now. Yeah. Now, it's a I don't know if I prefer that actually it's all insulting to those of us who helped build the brand twelve years. Which is why we have a lot of fun with it. Yeah. Who needs to win more tonight? Both these teams really need a win. But who needs it more now than it's a game Packers Seahawks? I think it's an easy answer. I will put my thumb on the scale right away. Okay. Seahawks. Need it more than I see? I I disagree with you. Why? One team their coaches on the very very hot seat. That is not Seattle. Correct. And so Green Bay I think really needs this for Mike McCarthy job. How about this though? What do you think is the more likely scenario to come out of tonight? What do you think this more likely scenario to come out of tonight? That the Packers win. Snapping a six game road losing streak, by the way overall at Seattle overall. Snapping that tonight and going on a hunky Dory. Playoff run and Seattle struggles the rest of the season or Seattle does what it's done all year long, which is come at you with a stout running game. They haven't won at home, by the way in two straight games. I understand that. But this is a night game. It's a totally different ball of wax. Seattle's at home at night, and they come out and get this win which they need more than Green Bay because you look up and the Los Angeles Rams are sitting there way in front is a matter of fact, we have ourselves the first NFL playoff clinching scenario. That's been sent out from three forty five Park Avenue. They send it out every single playoff clinching scenario week. We already have one of these we do. Wow. And if Seattle loses tonight and the Rams win Monday night, the west. Is one and Rams you guys your season ticket holders? You already know. You've got a home playoff game. The only question is the first week of the second week. And I imagine it's going to be the second week. A buy week Seattle needs this their path to the playoffs is the wildcard period end of story. And a more likely scenario as Seattle wins. This thing tonight and Green Bay loses. And we get ourselves despite the hot seat of Mike McCarthy the annual. Aaron Rodgers message to fans, relax. I've got this. And then they despite being four five and one with six games to go. Come up with nine or ten wins. Anyway. Totally feasible. They do not need to win tonight. The Seattle Seahawks. Need it more tonight? It's easy to tell your fan base Ariella in week four. If you're telling them that and week eleven the ship is already half sunk Green Bay after tonight's Thursday night football game. They are at Minnesota on Sunday night home for our Zona. And then Atlanta Ashikaga at the jets home for Detroit. So I'll even give you the loss at Minnesota to if you want they can whip rip off the last five wins, Arizona, Atlanta. Chicago jets lines three of them at lambofield one in Chicago, which will be a difficult one, but they can easily pull that one off. So they go five and to the rest of the way that's nine six and one. Potentially good enough to win at all. To get a wild card berth or win. The win win win wild card berth. Any Carolina to stumble. No, they'll be the succeed. Carolina will be the five seat nine six one should get you that succeed. That's why I'm saying I'm just scrambling all out Seattle. They can't fall four and five. Seattle after this one's done. They are at Carolina home for San Francisco. Home for Minnesota on a Monday night at San Francisco. Home for Kansas City on a Sunday night home for AirAsia. Guess what? That sounds like nine and seven they lose tonight nine seven versus nine six one. That's why I'm saying Seattle needs this one tonight. I appreciate what you're saying though. Yeah. I was saying I was also putting it in terms of expectations coming into the season. I don't think Seattle how Super Bowl hopes whereas green day. A lot of them. Pick us pick them to go. Gotta take a break. You know, why? Because the head coach of Notre Dame football calling in Rancho beat my team to start the season gun viewer team to essentially wrap up their regular season coming up this Saturday Nachman never thought this game would be as important as it is. And it's in Yankee Stadium where from what I'm gathering where Brian Kelly's from. He's a red sock fan. There's another red sock. Another just another insult to injury of Michigan. Yankee fan getting set to introduce an interview one of the top college guys and one of the good guys that I've spoke to in quite some time. Brian Kelly is gonna join us.

That's Mike Tariq, oh at the call on N B C in the head coach of Notre Dame football who this season is he her as you just heard is undefeated after beating my alma mater in week one. Now going to the Vaal known as Yankee Stadium on the new Yankee Stadium to take on none other than Chris Brockman, alma mater. Syracuse orange. He is Brian Kelly. How are you coach doing good? Thanks for me on the show. Of course, come on. You know, when it all comes down to it. You know, I like talking to you. Well, we put that Michigan stuff way. Plus it was early in the season we played Michigan. So it really doesn't count. Right. Well, let me see. Looking at the standings accounts. Counts. It's the only sport, you know, college football coaches like I grew up in Boston. Right. So it's a sports down. You know, baseball football hockey, you know, in head competition at the end of the year, they go. Well, they won the tiebreaker college football. There's no tiebreaker. I guess if you play well, I mean when it all comes down to it. That's it. It's the schedule in head to head. And that's why a lot of folks think that if you should stumble over the next two weeks that it doesn't matter. What Michigan does? I mean. Do you have that philosophy in your mind here? Yeah. I mean, I think at the end of the day. It's it's so competitive for us. We've always felt like you know, you've got a win every week. And so our focus is always been about taking care of business each and every week. And I I don't know that we've ever had a goal that. Hey, if we get one win, maybe we can get in. And you know, you're playing for national championship Notre name. We don't have a conference to play for. So it's it's when every game you play. Well, I to me I think that's a benefit that you don't have a conference to play for. That's an extra game where where you put it all on the line for what right? Yeah. Exactly. I mean, you know, there's only one thought process for us, and that's to be one of the four teams to get in. And I think you have to always think about you know, playing you know, each and every game as if it's a playoff game. So I know that's the way our guys feel about playing Syracuse this weekend. Do you feel any necessary? No. I know you win you're in. I get it. But do you still feel necessary to potentially lobby the crew that picks these final four in any way, shape or form? No, I don't think. So, you know, I think you know, from our perspective is that you know, we can't count on every year. You know, what the other teams are going to be like, I mean, we put our scheduled together knowing that we want to put together a competitive national schedule every single year. And you know, if you look at our schedule down the down the road every year, you know, you you look at it and go off Florida state, and you know, you've got Michigan. And you've got USC Stanford that hold up, you know, to the smell test relative to the kind of schedule you're playing so we can't really worry about that. We just gotta play him as we as we get them. How is your team any different from other than obviously who's starting quarterback than than that week one? We took on Michigan coach running game too. Dexter Williams adds a home run punch that we had lacked you know, at two hundred yards rushing last week. He's gone for two hundred on a couple of Cajun's. We did not have him for the first four weeks. So I think those two, and then I think you know, we we really didn't have any of those playmakers with any maturity miles boykin was a not a starter force last year. He's matured chase Klay pool. Chris thank all those guys on the offense of side of the ball were not starters last year which into now much more veteran like in their presence on the offense. We're gonna see Ian book. And and yet he's healthy. Yeah. Yeah. He's practice. The last couple of days in he'll be ready to go. Okay. What does he bring to your team consistency in performance high percentage stores of football runs the offense? Very well. Just very very efficient and the kind of offense and the style of on. So that we wanna run Brandon we run a different style offense. It's much more predicated on. On the run game. You know, we ran for over three hundred fifty yards against Florida state last week. It's the ability to push the ball down the field vertically, it's an effective offense. But it's a different style of offense than book is in their Notre Dame fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly here on the rich Eisen show. What concerns you about Syracuse? Well, they've got a system in place now for over the last three years that they haven't changed. I think Dino vapors done a great job of sticking with. It hasn't changed. It went through to growing pain seasons. If you will at foreign eight and didn't listen to all the noise stuck with it. And and now these guys are three years into a system that they really run very very, well and their matured, and you know, the quarterback is fearless. You know, he'll he'll go out there and make plays for defensively. They've added some veteran players that can get to the past to the quarterback. They pass rush. Very well. And they're deserving of where they are. It's a good football team. Okay. Let's get to the. A Yankee Stadium. It'll just gonna come straight through. You just already mentioned you're from New England. Are you a Red Sox fan going Yankee Stadium? Brian. I am where to get the trophy. So it's really not an issue. You know, we've already won there. So this is really taking kind of a victory lap. But you put in your team in pinstripes, though. I mean, you good with that. I am look. I mean there too great franchises. I mean, you have to respect, you know, the work that the both franchises have done. I mean, I'm not calling the name of franchise, but you know, the Yankees franchises iconic the tradition of Notre Dame matches. Really well. So I think this is going to be a great event. Yeah. The end locks interlocks with D in the same way that the end into locks at the Y for the Yankees, right? Much more than that. It's just, you know, it's a great area for us in our alumni base. And and certainly for for Notre Dame football to to pair up with the Yankee tradition. I just think it's great. Okay. I don't know. I think just saying that because you're just you know, it's business. I understand that. Because you just I mean, you get your first chance you had you took a swipe at the Yankees with the Red Sox stuff just saying we've already got it. You know, so. Go right to tradition. Have to worry about we won. Why we're at Yankee Stadium in clinch, the pennant and okay? So did you are you pushing maybe play game at Fenway. What he did? Yeah. We did that a couple of years ago against Boston College enjoyed that the green monster the whole thing just it doesn't get any better. When you're independent you get a chance to do a lot of things it makes it difficult in some areas. But the ability to play, you know, we played navy out in San Diego, Chicago, northwestern, New York, we go to LA, we're like a Broadway show. You're the Hamilton the Hamilton college football. Yeah. So, you know, look, I I'm not the type of guy that normally tells successful coaches such as yourself how to do your job. But maybe what you should do is take your kids to monument park out in in right field there or wherever they've put it. Now. I've made the Yankee Stadium out there. Okay. And you go there, and you show off all of the twenty seven championships that the Yankees have had. So that you could see what sustained long success in baseball is like you understand about what twenty seven is compared to what was it four or five in in Boston coach well, four five in the in the path twelve twelve fifteen years. No. You know, we're we're certainly going to take in the tradition of what has been Yankee Stadium. But we're going to remind them that this year. World Series champs are still involved. Okay. Very good. If you could change college football playoff. I know we've kind of discussed it before. But now that you're sitting there at three. One of three undefeated teams or UCF would raise your hand and say one of four right? Do you? Do you like it? Do you think there should be more? We we had we had Mike Lee John last week. He went up he went off about a sixty four team idea that he had coach. Well, you could have a whole show with Mike. That's for sure, you know. I think there's five there's five power five. You know, when we talked power five conferences. I it just doesn't for me. The numbers don't seem to add up. Always. Right. If let's let's say the it happens that Georgia wins. Right. And and now you've got to see schools in. We're gonna win out Notre Dame. That's you know, an independent there's three, you know, maybe there's only to the power five in the the BCS that doesn't make much sense to me that three of the other power FIS are left out. I think I think sooner or later your gonna want that all of the the power five get an opportunity to be innocent to me. I'm not great math. That's why I got into football coaching e would seem to think eight would be the right number. But every time we bring that up. We're met with you know, it's too many and we've already decided on this. But I just don't see how this consisted if you're only getting a couple of the power five conferences into the BCS championship. Now, it's obvious to me that it would be beneficial to a team that has won loss to have a conference championship game to perhaps improve their standing and get in by slaying, Goliath. You don't have that problem if you're onto if you're undefeated, which is the issue for some of these undefeated teams, do you do you see potentially you getting into a conference in joining it and getting give? Your independence at all. And it's always asked of us. And and I just don't see that right now becomes a factor for us in terms of how how it looks. I mean, you know, the big twelve could play themselves out with a conference championship because they both have you know, losses, and they may end up playing each other again the same team. So you just it's so cyclical with the conference championships. It's not a guarantee. So I think if we play competitive schedule like we have every single year if we sit at the end of the year twelve we don't get in. There's nothing that we can do about it. Maybe we'll be like central Florida, and we'll put up our own national championship banner. I mean, I I really think that where we are a conference championship or conference doesn't do any any better. Coach really appreciate the time. Always good talking to you too. Right back at you say, hi, all twenty seven championships stadium when you're down there. Okay. Doc, you later take at coach Bryan killing always living in the past. Life's good for him. And he loves his Red Sox. They did clinch their right? Yeah. They did. And then. Twice two years ago story. Right. Yes. This year. They this your as break champagne advance. I don't just like oh four, but it'll be in the home locker room. I imagine. I don't know who the home team is for this. Gotta be Notre Dame put in pinstripes on their uniforms for crying out loud. But Syracuse always bills themselves is New York's college, I think there when I gotta be honest with you, though, growing up there in New York City. The orcs Notre Dame town. Oh, yeah. It really is. Yeah. I mean, it's why is that you think because New York has no college football. I mean, Chicago's got northwestern. Obviously this city has both USC and UCLA. He's not amazing by the way that this is obviously huge game to top fifteen teams team undefeated. Notre Dame's gonna come here to calcium next week and take USC and everyone's just like that is on deal. That's just a hanging Chad on on on the on the schedule. Also, speaking of this town, it's USC UCLA week. Haven't heard a peep about it nothing zero. But. Notre Dame Notre Dame. Chicago's Notre Dame town right all due respect to north western New York's Notre Dame town really has Penn State was big too. When I was a kid because they were independent also and Syracuse just really, you know in between Jim Brown and Donovan McNabb. Right. Wasn't a lot. I mean, they have did. I miss anything sort of good players. But not great teams like Marvin Harrison were you watching the game. Here's the thing. There's a parent towns weekend. And so by the way, be careful with what what what I'm about to say. I already you you hesitated inside. No, no. I'm just saying like how I'm going to watch the probably having to watch on my phone while we're out in about hold on a second because it's an eleven thirty start out here on the west coast. So have you met her parents before? Yeah. Okay. So we're the overpass so they will understand. Yeah. But I just don't want to be like if we're out to be like, hey, I'm going to go to this restaurant while you guys are hold on. I wanna be present. Hold on. I know that they figure I'm assuming Sarah gets her Georgia fandom from her parents. I'm assuming they all -ssume that Georgia football. Would they be going out to eat? If there was a Georgia football game going on. Oh, yeah. I mean, they're not her dad's hardcore her mom isn't look, I I'm not saying this to stir anything up. No, no, no. I know you're not. I'm just saying giving weekend. Okay. All of my in laws are in mother-in-law brother-in-law, his wife, their three kids are do believe my mother-in-law's, even bringing her small little dog with her. Okay. So we're we're we're full house. Michigan kicks off with the Ohio State University nine AM that Saturday. Everybody's under. Everybody knows. There's no there's no going out to lunch. There's no none of that. And I get that. It's here's the difference between like let's say Georgia, for example, every single one of their games is a big event. This is the biggest Syracuse game in for fifteen twenty years. What do you see you? You're going to go with but to go out to lunch and watching your phone. Wow. I don't even know who you are anymore, man. We should retire your shorts. More than my short. Okay. Okay. Can I help in any way? Did I just help probably? It's worth right now. I will keep you updated on what my told me ball here in Los Angeles eleven thirty thirty time. Okay. And, unfortunately, if this is a pro football game, you could you could say I'll see you after lunch right college football with their twenty four and a half hour, Syria. I know with their hour long. Halftime and the commercials last forever. The Michigan Ohio state game. I am. So on edge those commercials, literally feel like it's like it's a movie and the thing about the Syracuse team is they throw the ball a ton. And so that you know, Secaucus clock doesn't move. We have to have an intervention. We have to have an intervention when do when do hold on. When do the folks come into town this afternoon? You got ta you got tomorrow you got tomorrow. There's a lot of Brockman time. Take for down getting on your right now. He's he's married with children understand take them up for lake din. Friday, take them out on the town of you. The code.

I am i'm wearing pants. Welcome to this edition of the rich eisen. Show just wanna get everything handled. Oh wait a minute. I got through my best ever son right around now. We can start this show. My name is rich eisen and we've got ourselves a week. Eleven kickoff that went down last night to talk about good to see you today. Chris mattanen well. We do have one late. Add to our guest list. Okay the pres- jamal adams. Hey all right. We'll join us gwen last night Yeah big win. Last last night and part of it a large part of it i would say is the seattle defense showed up in a big bad way. Big game best conformance season to date no question about it. I test would tell you that. especially since. They started the game with two three and outs of the arizona. Offense to in her own. The arizona offense that came in with all that momentum the hell murray as we all know so on and so forth but the metrics don't lie either in that overtime victory for arizona in week seven last time. These two teams met not a single hit laid on calamari. Not a single quarterback hit of kyla in that game. How about that played damn near five quarters not a single head on cuyler murray last night three sacks seven quarterback sets beat up big difference big difference including the final sack of the night on a three man rush think about that fourth and ten they clean it up lock it up with a sack on a three man rush and the guy who provides the sack is carlos dunlap who as we all know was acquired by seattle just a couple of weeks ago after he earned his exit visas from cincinnati instagram. Out information on greece boards. That should not be made public. Hey look man. This is what the seahawks do they. This is what they do. They find players for their system whether it's in the draft that people don't draft in the top four round five rounds or it. Somebody like carlos dunlap john. Schneider is connected to peak carroll's connected to john. Schneider was connected to russell wilson. Who's connected to this team on the field and jamal adams is a big difference maker. He is one of the top pass rushers in the league. He's a safety. That's what makes him sedan valuable ease just a wild card. Put them in a box. He's not one of those guys. That's gonna patrol the secondary like your typical if you will thumping safety in the back come up with some pics lay the would. He can do that what he does. Better than anybody else. In that safety position is go ahead and hit the quarterback. You don't know where he's coming from and freelance and it's the sort of stuff that apparently drove the jets so crazy that they they get. They had to get them out. Wouldn't sign a long term. So jamal adams is going to join us on this. Show too many damn steaks. Last night they were false starting. The building was fully twelve Also last night. Drake jay dre kirkpatrick. Last night. i mean thrown a punch or slapping around just when the cardinals were getting off the field looked like decay. Metcalf was throwing a punch and might get the gate minute. come out. and they say it's on arizona. Fifteen yard penalty. I down seattle. Took advantage of that. Great night for fits. Larry joe they catches sixty two yards and back. He was definitely fouled. I think on that dangerous throw. I think it was second in ten early digs arrived early but it was also throw into traffic and when you throw it into traffic. It's kind of like one of those one of those flags or one of those whistles. You don't get in basketball when you're you know you're kind of driving in traffic. And and and you're expecting contact or if you're an official. The contact happens and it's just part and parcel thought digs position in front of where fitzgerald. They're gonna throw a flag. I thought it would be bobby wagner. I thought he got hit. I mean i'm sorry. I thought he got hit early. I thought he got hit early. But you know everyone was gone for the ball. I get it. But he's early lock. It made a beautiful beautiful move. On patrick peterson. For the second touchdown k. Metcalf on a fire drill score to get everything started. Russell was doing russ things and carlos hyde that will also show you two big differences. Well last couple of weeks no hide no carson lotta dj dallas scarborough got into it and then he got hurt and also. I want to send my best to one of my favorites men one of my favorites and he's going to have a lush career in this business when he does hang them up. I hope this was not the end of his career last night. But greg olsen has a significant foot injury and He does hope to comeback this season yet be said it was a ruptured plantar fascia. And so he does hope to come back this season that it is something that might be able to heal in time if they do make a nice long run into january. But that's a win. The seahawks neither have should've understood that pete carroll and lost three games since two thousand eleven for reason. Russell wilson's never lost three games in row. That's what i meant in a row. Last time the seahawks they had a two game losing streak going into last night the loss against buffalo and the rams that last time they'd lost three zero we looked up. It was charlie chuck wider starlight clipboard. Jesus losing one in week seven in the weeks. Eight and nine were lost consecutively by taveras jackson. Way back in the two thousand eleven season when russ was getting things done for wisconsin. So i should have seen that one coming and the fact that jamal adams is getting back in there significantly in carlos. High begin was a difference maker. Do not forget that. Carlos hyde was thousand yard. Rusher for the houston texans last year. That was significant scored a touchdown last night on the ground providing the necessary. The necessary pressure removed from rossi. Didn't have to do all the cooking. Their offensive line performed well center. Last night never played played center before got got caught. It showed in the beginning. I got caught a couple times for holding. There were also last night The safety that arizona got called for. Can you review whether a hold is technically like. Is it like getting out of the end zone. Where all you need to do is just crossed the goal line. And you're not technically in the end zone for a safety if the hold starts outside the end zone and continues into the end zone that it's not the end zone right so that tech venice got on cliff. Kingsbury on twitter for challenge wasn't weird. In retrospect should've recognized that that that hide was did jump on top of the football and the clock would have been running in arizona. Most likely to call time out. Anyway you might as well use one of your two remaining challenges just thirty seconds left in the challenge period of the game. And if you're gonna use a time out and lose a time out anyway you might as well. Just get your double double your money's worth and get a challenge out of it to roll the dice you know. Pull the arm on the one. Hand one armed bandit and see if it comes up Jackpot for you didn't and arizona again just too many mistakes man too. Many mistakes and mari didn't look himself. And that's one of the things we're gonna ask troy aikman who called this game last night we're gonna ask him about In ten minutes time when he joins us he he called the game last night. with Joe buck and i'm just a he. He called it out. Murray looked hurt. He said after the game he was okay. He was good but they're applying he packs to it in the first half second half a lot of balls or wobbly at one point. He's running to his left at one point. He's running to his left and has an open deondraye hopkins if he hits in stride deondraye does one of those snatch it with one hand then gain ten yards just three strides type easily twenty to thirty yard gain and just completely missed and again you know what i mean to its deandre. This is definitely fantasy related. Because i i have them in two leagues and and so i watch him intently. Every single there's is there ever a question. I've mentioned it before it might as well say it here again. Is there ever a question. When he's on the boundary whether he got both feeding never right never never never and it happened three or four times last night very close to the boundary. Don't just got that rolling on the ground and it was part of his but out of bounds. Now it's he's unbelievable and ever and i will say this to tyler. Lockett entering elite category. If he's not already there. When he caught that touchdown in the corner there wasn't a question in my mind that he didn't dead leg. Of course you did. And there wasn't a lot of room. I know he so good. Yeah he's so good slippery fun game man just a fun game to watch you know in arizona's still got two games against the rams left. They split that season series. They've got another game with the forty niners left this this divisions totally up for grabs but seattle had to have that they could lose three in a row and get swept by arizona. That would that would have been very very difficult for them. That would have by the way have given him three losses in the division doubter given valid giving them three losses in the division needing to win the last two games of the year to five hundred and the division. could you imagine how damaging that would be. That would not be able to finish better than five hundred in the division and they would have been swept by arizona and they would have lost three in a row that would have been very damaging for this team last night but they survived it. They got it done and they gotta easy next fort while not easy but favorable next four game. I mean we don't mind put that up again. One more time don bowie. Their next four games is a monday night or at philadelphia dan. They've got the giants and then a week fourteen game at i'm Eager to ask our second. Our guest about jamal adams on the jets. Well out of this is going to pick six. I don't think. I think it's i think it would do a disservice to the shape of a circle to. He's circling that game. Sometimes you're put a little bit too much pressure on your pen on the paper and it ripped through. He's gone through calendars trying to circle that one. Nothing we're going to talk about with troy. Aikman is the news that Apparently according to all reports the new orleans saints this weekend against the atlanta falcons will not start jameis winston. They're gonna start tasting quarterback and that's out there and just in case you're wondering well maybe tastes gets the start and then jamie will come in and they'll go back and forth between different styles of play adam schefter tweets out winstons not part of any offensive packages now single one and tesa. That's it tastes hill. Is the quarterback and james will just be the backup in case of emergency and this is just a great piece of deliciousness to me. Because what this means to me is the new orleans. Saints are going to play football in a style that we've seen out of the ravens k. Name any quarterback who could take off and run. Maybe it'll be similar kawamori. it's just you know. He's not as fast. he's big he's just big. Big big is more career touchdowns than pass attempts fastcustomer. But i'm just saying name. Ross name somebody who win. The play breaks down can just take off and run. Four four tastes. milkin name. Somebody you could throw it and still do that. It's a very small subset named somebody. Like sean payton. Who can dial up the place. Like sean payton. His name is sean payton. And he's the one who's doing that and they're doing it within a week. They're doing this with any week. They're installing this offense within a week. Meaning whatever plays that have been in the playbook that they haven't touched upon location or already have done. It's coming atlanta's way. He takes a lot of hits to james. I would stay ready and my sense my sense in case anybody is out there wondering why would this get out like wouldn't it. Wouldn't it behoove. Keep everybody guessing. What are the saints. Get out of semi announcing a source. I i. i don't know things get out people talk. It's not like. I can't imagine it's sean. Payton calling up in or or or adam and saying. Hey here's a scoop for we're going go. Tastes them hill. His choice that would be glaze to begin with. I as you know players talk players talked to agents. Hey guess what. We just didn't get yours. Yes we just finished practice and guess who got all the ones and guests who basically our quarterback this week it gets out it gets everything gets out. There really are no secrets in the nfl. If you can't if you can't you know if you can't play man you can't play zone. You can't read man you can't read zone everyone's gonna know there's really no secrets and in terms of maybe keeping it under wraps completely in threatening your your team with Any sort of harsh penalty. By letting anything. Get out sean. Payton to me is the personification of i don't care if you know. Try and beat it. Yeah yeah you're probably right you know everybody's saying this offense isn't sustainable with baltimore. You already seen the regression of lamar in this. Offense isn't sustainable with this quarterback or that one. Or you call a gimmick gimmicks. You call a gadgets. Just you wait to see my twist on it and i thought this was coming last year. I really thought this was common last year when brees hurt his thumb and they made the decision to go with teddy bridgewater and that worked out to the tune of five and all. I can't wait to see this. This makes new orleans atlanta. Vat much more that much more. Must see and congrats to anybody out. There who's got taste hill with tida designation to play quarterback at the tight end spot. this week. We'll come in your fantasy league against you or for you rich. I was just thinking it kinda does make sense the right because we all kind of realize jameson is in new orleans not for a long time but a good time rate aids probably not in their future plans tastes. Maybe give tastes shot. I don't know if you can say that with certainty tj. I i know that that could be an indication here. I know having spoken to a bunch of people for you know for Many a moon that the reason why they paid taste hill. All this money's. They really do believe he is potentially the successor to drew brees. And then you gotta have a third viable option right there because you are playing this guy on various the game and i can't wait to see what he looks like. What if he comes out wings at around and runs around and is just a dynamo which you would have to expect. The possibility of that happening is considerable. Because of who's dialing the plays in the weaponry as it is disposal. Assuming chimeras going to be healthy to plan. We've never seen him winging around ten for eighteen in his career. Well i think sean payton has in practice. Probably i can't wait a really can't wait and i can't wait to troy aikman. Thinks about all this. he's first up. Jamal adams after troy.

We're back here on the rich eisen show radio network as well as peacock. Nbc sports on peacock. Back here on our sirius. Xm channel to eleven as well as Are rich eisen. Show terrestrial radio network highlighted by the mightier ten ninety in southern california where this man used to play a little bit of college football the last night. That was fun. Did you see the package. That The thursday night football crew cut together of cuyler murray and troy aikman running a and they played for oklahoma. That was fantastic. He's one of my favorite people and it's just fantastic listening to him and joe together hall of famer troy aikman. How are you troy goodrich. Our package was coming. Did they hit that in your heart. all i heard right before the package rolled. I heard our producer. Tell joe have some fun with what's coming up. Whatever it is. And then choose from i will. I will tell you that from my days. At oklahoma good was great again. It's such a great watch you and you. How long have you and joe call games together. Now nineteen th year together. You know we did I got into broadcasting. And no one. I retired in two thousand and So my first year. I was on the number two crew mellon left and went to become the gm with the detroit lions and worked with. Dick stockton daryl. Johnston and then the very next year madden left for monday night football and they moved joe and i and chris collins worth into the booth. We worked together for three years and then So nineteen years. And then joe and i by ourselves The last sixteen so been a long time hard to believe. I wasn't planning on starting this way but it might as well just keep going here. One of the greatest moments of the season on the broadcast was Joe hit he's in the pro football hall of fame. Which obviously you did have a heads up on that. I was so well. Deserved new was just awesome. Troy really was. I was not given a heads up. I i was. I was told the where my jacket my goal jacket because it was the hundredth anniversary of the hall of fame. I there was they. I was told there was something going. On at half-time. I thought it was going to be david baker doing something on behalf of the hall of fame which ultimately he did but it was to tell joe that he was going in and So it was a. It was as i learned the same time. The joke is pretty awesome as someone who gets to work with them for as long as i have I haven't taken for granted. Just how talented he is. I can't imagine and there's some really good ones as we know Al michaels gymnasts and others over the history of our game. But i just can't imagine anyone being more gifted than joe With how seamless and smooth. He is doing a ball game. Aikman here on the rich eisen show fresh off of calling thursday night football with Joe and a new era. You enjoy calling packers colts later on this week correct. That's what you got going on okay. Quick turnaround for us should be another good one. Last night was an ballgame and this is to good teams squaring off on sunday as well. I wanna talk to you about that in a second. But it wasn't important ball game last night troy because if seattle had lost that game they wouldn't have they would've been better than five hundred in this division by the end of the year. They couldn't have done any better than that. They would have lost both to arizona and they would have lost three three in a row for the first time in the russell wilson era but the defense looked much more stout than it had all year long as to. What do you attribute that. do you think troy. You know it's a. It's not what i expected. i did we. We had seattle against the rams the last sunday and and They didn't play well in the first half. But in the second half against the good offensive team in in the rams they they held them to six points and did a nice job and then they come in against arizona. The number one offense in football going over four hundred yards a game and and They played really well. I i just think that the the seattle seahawks are just try. You watch them. And they just don't really seem to know exactly what they're going to major in on defense and and they're caught in a real bind because of the injuries they've had in the secondary and not being able to really get after the quarterback but they corralled the tyler murray last night Holding him to a season low and and rushing yards. And i think it's just they were effective with their blitzes and and did a nice job if they can just get. You know the the key for seattle really has been if they just protect the football And i know that that's cliche and a lot of teams can say the same thing but it's really true about this particular team. And when they do that then they're really hard to be in offensively they can be explosive. They got back to what we know they've been about and i know that pete carroll when we had them going into the rams game he kind of you know Brushed aside the question. I had about whether he was comfortable with how much they were throwing the football. Because i know it has core. He likes to run the ball. And and then they had another poor outing in russell. Wilson struggled and then he made it clear this past week that he wanted to get back to doing what they have done for so many years and and it paid off and i don't think that that takes away anything from what russell wilson has been about. But they're better football team when they're bounced and and being physical and it really helps their defense out as well. And and i think that part of it's been lost and so i think it was good complementary football and as you know ritz i mean seattle regardless of what it looks like This is just one of those resilient teams that you just never can count out and even had they have lost. I would not have been worried about them too much. Because i understand every every games you know a difficult game in our league but if you look at their next four games They would be a huge surprise if they don't win the next four so even with a loss they're looking at ten and four After the next month of the season so now that they won their in a great position and they're only going to be in a better position here in the next four weeks so then who is arizona and By saying that. I i mean you. Here's a team that. If they had won that game could have really taken control of things and needed a hail mary. In order to beat buffalo and had an opportunity if could have beaten to earlier in the month had an opportunity to take over first place. Then are they just a team on the upswing or do you think they can actually make some considerable. Hey right here and right now. Having seen the mouth i think that I do think there on the mean. I do feel that there. I don't think are the best they're going to be. I think they'll continue to be better this year. But i i think they easily could make the playoffs. Don't get me wrong. But i believe that there are probably a year away From from really beginning to be you know. Be the team that i believe that they can be with the personnel that they have defensively. I like the players there. They got some young players. Some really talented gifted guys. That i think are just maybe a year away but with that being said i didn't cuyler murray here in a second season has done a terrific job Didn't have his best game. Like i said last night but they have they have squeaked out some games it's part of the nfl. We understand that but the last time these two teams met the was a probably an improbable win for them. The way that they came back at the very end and then one and overtime against seattle and the game that they want and other improbable went on sunday against buffalo. The way that unfolded so they're probably 'bout in the best case scenario where were they had hoped to be. As far as record goes they still obviously right in the thick of it. But i think this team's only gonna get better and and and cuyler murray I i i'm impressed. I mean when i when i watch him. He's he's a unique player. I don't think there's anybody else like him in our game. You can point to someone like lamar jackson. But i think when you look at the whole package of kyle murray He's outstanding and And and who would have guessed. I mean The i was talking to joe about it last night. For went on the air years ago with the quarterbacks in the college level there was still the time. When you didn't want to run your quarterback in the nfl. You're worried about him. Getting hit and i said well eventually that has to change because the college games just not producing peer pocket passers and and it really has now even us as broadcasters. We don't talk anymore about quarterbacks getting hit you know it's just kind of part of the deal because these guys are so athletic and carla. Murs been he's been fun to watch. And and how did you find him talking to him because we also saw last night he to me. He was clearly heard you appointing out that up before i even noticed it Because you know you are who. You are He quote clearly hurt. Hurt last night it so you saw how he was trying to perform and fight through it in a big game not come out or or not show any more than he was showing but when you sat down them. I'm assuming this is the first time you saw him all year. What what did you find when you when you chat with him. I like him. He's he's a great competitor. I know is history. I i. I'm familiar with them from back when he was playing high school. Football just Up the road here in allen texas and had a terrific high school career and and then at every level you just think that well how is his game going to translate and it and it has and so. I've gotten to the point rich with these guys with so many players that when they call into question whether or not they can make it in the nfl. I say well you know. They played if they played it a good school a big school and they played against great competition and they were able to do it in college. There's no reason for me to think they can't do it in the nfl. Those same players are the ones going on to play in the nfl. But i i. I like his like his competitiveness. I like his desire to be great I think the key for quarterbacks is can they get locked in. Every week i mean. There's guys who come off the bench. And they have good games. Or there's quarterbacks who step in and we'll play well for two or three weeks but the aaron rodgers. tom brady's drew brees. You know these type. Quarterbacks are guys who can get focused and locked in each and every week and it's not easy to do but i think murray is also that type of guy i think he's wired that way you know. I think he was raised that way with his father and and i marvel because steve kind the general manager is you know rich There was a lot of risk when he went out and he he fired. Steve wilks after after one season and decided that okay. We're gonna make a change. He hires cliff. Kings buries a lot of people. Were confused about that higher. And then on top of that after giving up the tenth overall. Pick for josh rosen. The year before they decide to make murray the number one overall. And you say wow this this organization just seems like. They're kind of treading water. I mean what are they going. And and it's worked out and kingsbury is Done a really nice job. Offensively changed some of his philosophy. That's been successful. And then kyle murray's proved to be You know worthy of the number one overall pick and now they seem to be in a good position to build and continue to get better. But i i like their offensive personnel. And like i said. I really like some of their young players. They have on the defensive side of the ball and That that team is going to continue to you. Know in the music business. It say You know they've they're whatever. They're ranked with a bullet. I think there. I think the rising you know i really do. Troy aikman pro football famer fox sports Right here on the rich eisen show okay About a half an hour before we go on the air word. Hits it sean. Payton is going to go with tatum hill. That's who's back. I'm not surprised by that. When we talked to sean early. In the season they signed him to a pretty good contract coming into this year and and case them wants to play quarterback and the idea was. Okay they're paying them this money. In the event that something happens to drew that he could take over and when drew retires. And so what. What sean had said to us was that if if drew brees went down in game like he did last week that jameis winston would be the guy who had come in off the bench because they gained planned for tatum hill to be the swiss army knife and do all his different things but then going forward if brees was going to miss games multiple games that tastes them would be the guy because then they would game plan with him. Is the quarterback. So i anticipate that would be what they would do. But you never know until it's actually announced. I mean sean could have certainly changed his mind because of all the things that tastes them. He'll can do so well but i'm really excited about watching him. he what a great competitor he is in He's tough as nails and all the things that he can do. I this will be different looking offense as we know and if anyone can make it work it'll be sean who knows his player exceptionally well and It it's it's going to be fun. I think it's gonna be fun for all of us in the nfl to follow and it'll be for the saints fans to watch so what what's your best gas. Is he gonna still run. The breezes plays with a little bit mixed in of what he's done or they're just gonna totally go like for the lack of a better comparison like from flacco to lamar like what the ravens did. Not question and i'll be honest. I i would guess i mean. This is speculation. i think we're gonna see more of the the wildcat if you will type offense. Maybe what you see in in in new england with with cam newton you know they certainly have to be able to take advantage of his running ability Relative to what drew brees does is a runner. But don't underestimate how well he throws the football either The first time we met First time tastes them was on. This team goes back a couple of years ago. I think we're doing a preseason game with new orleans. We're talking to sean payton and tastes them. Hills named comes up. I never heard of this guy. And he really hasn't done anything yet they just got them from green from green bay and shawn's talking about them and and what he said. Sean or what he said rich was he said. I'm not. I'm not saying we have Drew brees i mean. I'm not saying. We have steve young in the building. But i feel pretty good that we have our next quarterback Walk in the halls here. New orleans and so i mean he was sold on him. I mean shoot this holy cow. Who takes mail. Who's this guy. And he's been He's been a real pleasure to watch i. I haven't met tastes them. But i really love the way he plays and I think that he's going to not surprise. Anybody new orleans. But i think around the league who feel that he's just kind of this gadget guy. Who gets the ball and runs and play special teams and all that i think he's going to surprise a lot of people and how he throws a football troy aikman few minutes left with the pro football hall of famer. I don't know if you've had pittsburgh yet this year but so i asked him to caveat the best team. You've seen this year with your own to us. Thursday night sunday afternoons. The best overall team that jumps to mind right now has been tampa bay As far as what they have or what they're capable of being on offense and then how good they they are on defense. I just haven't seen that kind of ounce but pittsburgh's there because they play the obviously when ben's upright and healthy they're really good on offense and then with their defense is dominant as as they can be so i i like them with With a healthy drew brees a withhold judgment until we see what they're able to do with tastes like we talked about. But yeah i and and i like indianapolis but Offensively can they be explosive enough. I think is kind of question but that defense you know it goes back to nick sabin i. It really jumped out at me a few weeks ago when he said great defense is no longer be grade offenses and so as great as indianapolis has ben do they have enough firepower on offense But i but. I like that group overall as well yano and he saw casey and the kind of crazy reno reconfigured schedules earlier in the year against buffalo. You know and i. I do want to just pull on that tampa strand a little bit here. Because we had bruce arians on on tuesday and basically said to him. You know Kurt warner looks at the offense as brady's clearly not comfortable in it yet and you agree with accurate. He said yes. He agreed with it and asked for one. Do you think he's going to get comfortable. He joked one of those not really joking jokes neck. Spring is what he said. Yeah i think that's probably right. I i just don't know that that that they can get enough time on on task at practice. In order to have translator there's been moments and we've had several tampa bay games already. Tom's a friend had some pretty open conversations with him. It's a different philosophy as far as how he's reading things that's taking a real adjustment for him he's used to reading things. Short deep and and bruce arians reads everything deep to short and my experience as a quarterback is. It's dependent on pla whether you re deep trying to shot whether you're coming underneath but it when when you're used to one style and then you have to change it and you've been doing it for twenty years one way. It's been a big adjustment thing. I noticed when. I watched tom rich. Is that you know. Here's a guy who rarely would take sacks. I mean he would unload the football. He always had an outlet on where to go with the ball. I saw him games where they couldn't block anybody. When he was at new england and yet he would throw it away and then when the play was there would make the play. I never seen him get hit. So much. he's been hitting tampa and the interceptions. I mean that's just and then you look back and you know jameis winston all the interceptions he had last year. You start to ask yourself well you know how much of it is the quarterback. How much of it is the way in which they do things you know the high risk no biscuit type offense and we hear bruce talk about but i i agree i. Tom has handled everything remarkably well in my opinion. But i don't think he's. I think he's really comfortable with everything yet either But as we know they they are extremely explosive and if he has games like we've seen at times we had them against the green bay packers. They look terrific other times. It's not been quite so good. But if they can have those days when they're playing well on offense shoot they can play with anybody last one for you. Try be remiss. If i didn't hit the cowboys with you who. I believe you're gonna see on thanksgiving right. It's going to be joe. Okay against washington. And and alex smith. I mean that's what a great story. I'm sure you'll be talking about that quite a bit. Pre game and during the game But do you think jerry runs it back with dak knocking on wood. He's gonna come back. Healthy and mike mccarthy like right now i know what it is right now in the. Nfc there but do you think when it's all said and done that that this is the this is the way the cowboys are going to be constituted. Not just for this year but beyond what do you think I don't think it's any questions they'll get back on Dax prices going up each week. he already had leverage and now he's going to have even more leverage so but i do think that jerry recognizes just how valuable dak prescott is. I've been saying that forever. I mean the guy's a great leader. He's he's made himself a great player from when he came into the league and where he was projected and what he was able to do as a rookie and mike mccarthy I thought it was a great hire when they made it Felt that he with his credentials and resume was the right guy. This is a unique. John and it's not always easy you know. There's a lot of challenges that a lot of people just aren't really all that familiar with that. I am haven't been in the organization. So i think it takes the right kind of guy and i feel that mike is that that guy what happens though rich is when you start having questions which came out a few weeks ago when players were questioning the coaching and how capable they were i that to me is hard to turn around. I mean it's hard than to have played also and buying in if players weren't buying in right from the beginning and there's no track record Here in dallas with mike even though he's was successful in green bay but with that being said there will not be a change at the end of this season regardless of how this shapes up and and we're hopeful forget football. We're all hopeful that we get back to a normal life and are able to resume our normal activities. And if we're able to do that then. I think mike has a fighting chance along with a lot of other coaches In being able to to have a normal offseason and go into the regular year. but it's I it's been. It's been kind of something to watch from my perspective for a team that i think is talented. They've had a number of injuries so have a lot of other teams but they've just underperformed you're are the man troy appreciate the call. Great call last night have a good cast with with joe on sunday and thanksgiving is well. You're you're awesome. Thanks for the call. Thank you rich. Appreciate about right back at you. That's troy aikman pro football hall of famer. I told you guys t. I've heard the same thing sean. Payton loves takes him. he'll love him. He's going to be the saints. Quarterback drew brees goes to nbc that set and they signed a contract for the clearly he's valued more than just a swiss army knife. That's a fact and he said earlier this year breese goes down for considerable games like last year. He's our guy in the game. It's james because we've gained planned for breeze in his role and hill in israel. We're not just switch it up and games here comes. I can't wait for it. I thought this was going to be last year. I really did but it was teddy right. Maybe he'll wasn't ready. Maybe he believes in teddy more than james. Now which might be an unfair assessment from the outside looking in on. Jamus stinks i well. There's two things one. Atlanta is better than than than earlier in the season but new orleans should be able to to win this game winning with an issue at quarterback than well if he stinks than maybe pulls any puts jameson and you could just go back to the playbook the way it was. That's one too. I don't think he's going to stay but it's going to be interesting. Oh baby will be interesting for sure. Steve young is in the building so he said a couple years ago. It was like whose tastes a mill. I know steve. Young is can't wait. Oh baby jamal. Adams is coming up to same.

It's getting worse. Covert is getting worse in this country. We could see it. We all sense it. It's awful and Myles garrett went on the covid nineteen list today appears he has. It appears he has it. Yeah you heard how cam said that. He wasn't mentally right coming off of covert. I think if you watched him play. That was evident. And if i'm not mistaken did you say to me before this show. Tj andy dalton still doesn't or is that you chris says andy dalton distill does not have taste in sense of smell hastened sense of smell. What an awful scourges. What an awful awful scourge. So that's the latest right. There are poll question. Let's go right back down to the wormhole of the toy department. What do you have chris right now. On our poll question of the band's out on the field stanford band against cao So we're looking at craziest. In game disruption stanford ban play alison the palace the super bowl. Forty-seven blackout so can't believe that happened. And i'm going to fan man if you remember. This duty is to parachute into sporting events and he tried to parachute into holyfield riddick. Bowe a heavyweight championship fight miss the ring and then got his absolute bud kicked in the stand so just in case. You're wondering i posted the youtube video. Put van man as one word. It comes up various forms of fans stores in your area. If you separate it fan man it comes up. The actual his name is james miller s and he's he disappeared according to he's no longer with us. How about that. And man. I did not. I did not know about the fate of fan man. But i remember i remember fan man night man. It was crazy caesar's palace. They did outside outside boxing. I know fans interviewed into the arena. League what's he thinking and miss the ring and then and then entourage hope. Yeah just yeah not good. I got a couple of people saying eighty nine northridge earthquake. Oh but that's i said come on. No we're talking about we're talking about you. Know your san francisco san francisco right where where the the world series got interrupted. The game ended started a top. We're not talking about. Yeah i mean come on. We're talking about just coming out on the field weird stuff happening and i was there at the super bowl that went dark and ray lewis who this day think something think something was up by somebody because the ravens were kicking the forty niners ass and then san francisco got a considerable amount of momentum after the lights came back on. And that's why ray thought that something you know. Hey this games getting out of control. We need to be closer or something. It's crazy thirty. Four minute delay. That was insane. I remember it. I was in the nfl network sweet. I'll drop names. I think i was doing the highlight for the network that night. I was in the nfl network suite with sir. Paul mccartney wow and will ferrell she is. That's how i spent the blackout. Pretty good photograph with paul mccartney. Yeah you have such. She's still my my photograph on my instagram. Page as rich eisen. I believe it's still is right. I don't think i will ever change that. Let me make sure i'm gonna have. Morgan changed my michigan photo. Do something so stupid. you should change your back. I mean mccartney i remember. I went up to him because he was asking questions. When's alerts come about going. Rich baby wins lights. Come back. I mean literally. It was bizarre. Like hold on. Let me find out because you know it's information on the nfl network guy the nfl network sweet. Like let's go. did you call him sir. I don't think so and sure enough. It was in the nfl network. Sweet this past super bowl mccartney again. I believe this what. I've been told part of his doing the halftime show in jacksonville. Is he gets to go to super bowl every year and and they just any and and he's been in the nfl network sweet for a lot of my song this year and i saw. That's amazing there as well if wherever seeing minnesota and of course you know i did. I did tell welfare will look. Will you just plug it back in. Come on ray lewis the plug it. Did you kick it out of the law. Game with paul mccartney. Let's say i watch it with him. But i mean i did tell him down in front. Actually what band was it. Oh god they were in the nfl network sweet for the super bowl that the saints one in miami while they were like big new orleanians. I forget the name but they kept on getting up. They sat in the front row and they got up out of their seats literally for every play. Those fans are just like you know who who are gain of one on second and eighth grade. I'm serious like it was a gain select. let's go. I forget what they were who they were. That's funny. I did tell him. Sit down. i'm serious. Spoke for everyone else in a apply down and pick up. The states stopped the colts. You know on on second and five made it a third three. They were like screaming. And it's just like come on it's a marathon sprint super bowl for the first time ever excited but dreaming of it i get it first. Quarter it third. Quarter though echo. He'd been here before i forget who they were. I need to find out who they were rich. I remember being to look it up. If you like. Bands like pop bands from new orleans. I forget who they were. I remember being at a clippers game once in. Paul mccartney was in the stands. Yeah and it was unbelievable like they show him on the big screen. They play his song. He would stand up and clap and dance to a song he would jump up when he did the t shirt toss like trying to grab t shirts. He's locked in. He's pushing their time of his life. He's had his family reserved. He's locked in. He's just waiting for the candy apple cart to come along outside the sweet watching. Paul mccartney tried to jump and catch t shirts. Being shot in the crowd is is pretty funny. Have you come up with a list over there. And there's too many thoughts nashville nashville. I'm i forget. But i was so pissed off or is this a rock band hip hop pop. It's like a. it's like a new pop back the time they were like a new fresh face pop band. Forget who they were and they were at the super bowl god. They would not sit down but they would not sit down. I throw up another poll to. If you're sean payton who would you start. This week tastes james. I'm sure you know what let's find out at the end of the show. I'll text sean. Payton and tell them. This is what our fans think. This is our scientific poll. Of if you're sean on the outside looking in not seeing anything at practice what you do sixty two percent james. Of course they're going to say that. I'm telling you tamous taste and hills going to work out. Somebody's picked him up some of this. Of course i tried to get it. I couldn't get him. Because you're gonna get quarterback members at the tight end spot this week. Yeah the guy playing fantasy. Pick them our number two coming up jamal adams we're still here on cocteau. My gosh you're going to get tight end. You're gonna get quarterback numbers out of the tight end. He's going to bleed all tight ends in scoring this week. It's down he's down.

He's listed to stay of kept his tight end designation at this week and yahoo. He's a quarterback. Espn is keeping the tight. End designation for the week. That seems response.

REShow: Terrell Davis - hour 1 (02-04-21)

"Tells me this is the rich eisen. Show lettuces mentality your sumer. We good as right. Charles schwab covering the biggest game is how are they going to handle the rich eisen show. Today's gasps fro football hall of famer. Terrell davis pro football hall of famer. Kurt warner seattle seahawks safety jamal atta plus buffalo bills wide receiver stefan digs and now rich. Hey we've got a great show. We've got a great thursday show super fifty five. It's getting closer we can taste it. It's figured of honestly it's not something you can actually taste but it it's just something. That's very very excited. The super bowl is is is here is in. We are here in los angeles california. I'm heading to tampa people. I am headman. Tampa florida as you get. Yes i'm gonna be heading to tampa florida for super bowl fifty five. And here's here's my biggest problem about. It is the super bowl sunday. Pregame show that i'm hosting for. Nfl network started ten minutes ago. And i am. I'm not there yet. So it's aid half hours long. I need to start. Imagine if i start cramping around our five not good our a. It's it's kind of funny that you know. Cramping lamar jackson cramp. Oh gotta do if. I am if well. That's what he did. So if i disappear for For our seven. You'll know. I'm taking an ivy got it. You know it's it's really It's really exciting Because we're going to get an answer to all these questions and the hype is just going to be off the charts. The hype is beyond Off the charts already and the only thing that can possibly take our minds off his carson wentz being on the trading block. Wait a minute. I'm being told that's happening happening. Ian rapoport my colleague from the nfl media group saying that the eagles are getting phone calls on carson wentz and they are to use the frazier crane phrase listening. They're they're not hanging on the phone up. And it is the phrase that ian rapoport is a is using and i think you look not that how he rose needs my two cents. I think that's a good idea. It's a good idea. that I don't know what has caused it because again when we hear stuff in the media. We think it's just happening right now. Could've been happening literally. Ten days ago. It could have been happening on monday. Show when i came on the air and pointed to the differences between the way. The rams of handle jared goff when they decided he's not the guy anymore or they're wondering if he's the guy anymore or they're certainly questioning and if you're questioning that and your coaching the quarterback or grinding gears Then you know it would be a good idea. Just rip the band aid off and go for it. Which is what they did with matthew stafford despite teddy group bruce belief that later on. We'll get to that later but You know and i said well one team's doing what the rams doing what the eagles are doing is completely different thing because just that snapshot in time of the rams being incredibly aggressive in making the move and going for the guy that they think is best even though maybe to shawn watson was best or you would think that they were actually kicking your tire on aaron rodgers. Those are kind of pie in the sky. Certainly for the timing of it. Which was this past weekend. This however could have been Happening at that point in time to or they could have seen what the rams did and they're like. Hey bad idea or the rest of the league. So at the rams didn't say maybe the eagles are con- would would consider that to. Maybe the eagles would consider that to even though You know you know. We won't be sending another quarterback their way which is what the rams did with golf because they've got jalen hurts but maybe They will accept draft Maybe maybe they will cough up some draft choices to us if we take once. Maybe we can get wants plus golf plus in exchange for quarterback maybe the plus will just be less obviously than what the rams gave up because they're not acquiring a anything else you know what i'm saying. Maybe the maybe maybe. The eagles are willing to flip whence plus to us. Ranch flipped up golf. Plus maybe we can get went once plus even for for for less. We don't have to flip a quarterback. Maybe that's the way it can go or everybody saw what nick serianni looked like. And and think that. There's no way the eagles are gonna saddle est guy with a quarterback controversy on top of it because he couldn't even with all due respect. He couldn't even handle reading his notes that he had prepared for his pre games. Presume speech yeah he. He couldn't even handle that properly. And you're sitting there and you're like all the eagles no he can't handle talk about. Windsor hurts after a week to wentz loss. Like how. how's that gonna work. 'cause you know as long as p look peterson didn't handle things. A couple of times appropriately. Once when he clapped back at a reporter asking if the reporter played football ever nother time is when he also said. I can't turn to hurts because that actually tells the rest of the locker room that we're given up on the season and then he's forced to turn hurts based on the circumstance or the hell else knows what and then hurt starts bawling out Begins to bail the season and then the minute hurts comes out and hands the season to the washington football team and so on and so forth. I don't know what's causing this news to be leaking out right now or it's happening right now or it happened a few days ago and we're learning about right now similar to learning about the the shawn watson trade request days apparently thought weeks apparently after he actually delivered it to houston. Don't all the circumstances of the sequence. But i'll ask you would you reach out for carson wentz. Good poke your indianapolis you've gotta say yes. I think agree. I thought stafford was the spot. Indianapolis was a spot for stafford. I thought stafford was the right combination. Maybe you know once again. The rams are like will give you two once a three and our quarterback who's got a big large contract but has played in the super bowl as one forty plus games in the last few years in the nfl that he also is not even close to eight thirty when she's a little older than golf. If i'm not mistaken. But and he's got a huge contract but frank reich and he had a history. Do the colts cough up what to go. Get wentz what would it be. It would have to be whence plus coming to indianapolis right in exchange for what. How would this trade look like. I'm even just talking off the top of my head and confused. How would even possibly look because gough went with the two ones in the three for stafford. What would it be. so you're acquiring wentz. And his big huge ask contract it would be either wentz plus or what not even close to a first going to philadelphia for once. How would the trade even look. You could send twenty one to philadelphia for for what. Why would you even send a first for somebody who has underperformed so spectacularly with a nine figure contract if you got back say went and thirty seven is that's what i'm saying. What trade look like. I'm just even trying to win. Plus would you get a once plus for who. Because you're not flipping your quarterback back. They would just get rid of winston. Say serianni here's jalen hurts quarterback controversy over. Let's go to work but man is just a fascinating thought. If you're sanford cisco do you do that. I don't know it's such a huge contract. We'd say what you want about but the guy one football games. Yeah sure did once once was dreadful. This year i positively dreadful and also on top of it. He's thirty five million against the cap for the eagles with gov going. What does that twenty two million dollar hit. That's what it was and then stafford's is common in twenty two million carson wentz dead money my word. You guys think that was beyond repair in philadelphia. How do you back just again. I guess you can cause you you you you know it was if if i i know this because i've been posting. Some throwback thursday photographs to my instagram feed. And we're going to have a little throwback thursday photograph memory stroll on this show later on. It was three years ago today three years ago. Three let me repeat it three years ago today in which the eagles philly special the patriots in minnesota. That's it it's three years ago today. The eagles won the super bowl and they told that coach to beat it for a guy who may be the next check the next read the next just name it. It's entirely possible. He his first his first press conference was an absolute with all due respect. Well i mean. I was going to use the word abomination but it is not the guy the just absolutely stepped all over himself and did not have the chops to handle the moment and and he might have interviewed a lot. I hope i assume he interviewed a lot better than he did in his press conference. We how you going to say to that guy go forward. Let's let's let's have went start. And then if he doesn't like week three week week for you one in three haynick. Wh what are you gonna do the quarterback situation. You think he's going to handle that deftly. Does that matter. I guess when it's all comes down to it. I all i know is i. I would have sent him to some sort of Communications coach on the spot. If i was the owner if i was Our friend howie roseman. Out of like we're going get you on the phone. I know i know one or two off the top of my head. That'd be able to handle that situation right away. If brandon staley was all polished when he was on this show any yep sure was so put it all together and I dance the phone too. I just don't know how in the world it would look. Because i don't know if wentz's salvageable i don't think he's salvageable and philadelphia. I just don't that was quick. I know it's quick. It's quick trigger. Be pulled the plug. Whatever a one and three start there too and to start l. Let's keep going i. I don't know man they what probably may wanna run back for just because after that. Then he becomes imminently more tradeable. Saddle your first year coach with that problem. I just don't think it's a great play. And if you can trade him. I'd flip him right now. Deal with the cat pain for the moment. Try and win with jalen hurts year. One kid could dynamite with nine games ten games that could easily win your division with all due respect by two three. What if you're the patriots. Do something i don't think so. That's just so contract to give. It's not a contract. They give they don't do that and they'd have to give up picks probably to get him as well not happening. Does he have the toughness to win. A new england kaz hit that level. I can't believe that would. Terrell davis is a pro football hall of famer kurt warner they're both gonna be part of Nfl network's coverage of super bowl. Fifty five there. Are i two guests today then to absolute studs in the national football league currently our final two guests at the day. The president prez jamal adams one of our favorites will be here on the program and stefan digs last. We saw him. He was watching the chiefs. Celebrate making the super bowl on the field. One of the most moving sports photographs that i've seen all year long was too fond eggs staring at the hunt. Trophy celebration standing there by himself watching the team that had just beat him go to the super bowl and i cannot wait to ask them what was going through his mind when he decided to just soak that in. Look at that photograph on screen right there. I you know talk about living in the moment but also using your pain as motivation right. I just can't. I mean i love. Athletes who Are so passionate both of them. Jamal adams deformed eggs our number three will ask them all about super bowl fifty five keep an eye on.

Yeah physically to be good or good enough for that long right so everything i ever dreamed of. Hope would happen as has come true and then some you do realize that after tomorrow night when you're enshrined data is your last chance to a comeback. Well you know. I was gonna ask you like say sunday if i said you know. I think we'll play another. You can't do that you can. Will you do that on. Nfl game day morning. Will you make that announcement on. Nfl feel sunny more. Wake up you know super sunday. You might feel that you do you miss it at all though one day where you're just a really don't Missed the counter. The non-football stuff funny at events and stuff but not if you see a big win. Yeah that's that's good but the other team yes. I don't miss being the other team. And it's just a matter of time before the bad hits four county get yes. I don't miss that so house date brett farr. That was five years ago tomorrow. Five years ago tomorrow where he learned that he was in the pro football hall of fame and now he is about that try to. It's been that long since he was put into the hall of fame That's crazy. That was two years ago he he'd he waited. So you learn sixteen. Yeah he got twenty seventeen. He's been the hall of fame four years coming up breath as long as that was twenty. Sixteen i know. But he got announced in twenty sixteen so five years ago. He's a five years all reaches ten years since he's played and he still might come back. We back on the radio mic back here on the rich eisen show on our radio. Show a eight four four. Two zero four rich is the number to dial Here on a busy day. Terrell davis will be joining us in a second. What's our poll question over there. Cry just threw up the carson wentz one okay But one that i was actually thinking about was What's the most likely outcome on sunday. Not just who's going to win. But what's the most likely bucks win. Big bucks when close chief big chiefs close. Okay just want to get a tenor of how people feel the games go bouquet. We actually pick the winner very good. Eight four four zero four rich is the number to dial He has been Part of nfl network since its inception pretty much when he was injured in wondering if he's retiring or not and then eventually he did file. And then i've been working with him for quite some time. As a matter of fact he was sitting next to me. When i came up with the idea of running a forty yard dash the nfl scouting. Combine asking him. If i think i should run. And he left at me. I cursed at him and then iran. And now we're still great friends. He's a pro football hall of famer on behalf of his defy water. He is terrell davis. How are that's right day rich. I'm doing great man. How you how you you know what. Td if you had just said go ahead and run. I might not have done it the way that you reacted to me when we were bored waiting for. Nfl total access to tape that night and the old rca dome listening to the Of the air conditioning and nothing else Just staring into space. If you had not laughed at me. I might not iran and then i might not have ever done. I've been able to do logo. My show might not be running in a suit. So i say thank you. Terrell davis what how you can thank me You know those royalty check that come in every week you could just start going to be judgment because i look at my mailbox for them every day. I don't see them gave me credit for the logo and everything. So i think everybody's lifting of building as we i feel you wanna thank jimmy. Just go ahead and take care of. Td keeps it in. Check that every week there. You go then i started so then i will just give you a mile high salute and move on. Hey but you know what you bring up a very good point and so when you talked about how laughed at you when you mention you run in the forty s. People wonder like how tom brady has this of chitwan. You guys both michigan guys. It's the same same i can say. Come field everybody. He's like taking that kind of you know you didn't believe in me. And he is taking it to another level and so. I'm sure there's people in times like he's looking back and saying thank you for not believe it and the appreciate you. You doubted me. Thank you for drafting me. One ninety nine baseball all those things. Because that's why. I'm tom brady so rich. I that is a very good point that you've made. Let's everything you've done raith all the money that you've rain it wouldn't happen by did not doubt so. Let's keep on. Let's keep on expanding this because Technically when i was at the michigan daily at michigan and i was a reporter for that Student run publication One of the guys who was an editor at the time who i was splitting time with was adam schefter was he might drew henson then. Essentially was adam schefter. My drew henson shefty very well from the days when he was just a mere beat writer if you will covering the denver broncos so where do you rank mahomes brother. I mean we're talking about You know greatest matchups quarterback match ups of all time and You played in a super bowl whereas far versus elway. Where where do you rank homes in general and then a mahomes brady writ large here. Terrell davis. it's it's It's fascinating and it's If i mean it's crazy how this this young quarterback really bad compared to some of the all time greats and he's only played Agree years You know he's he's done so much in such a short period of time. But i think you look at patrick mahomes and you look at sort of his trajectory and kind of what he's projected to to do that. I think people feel competent. And but he'll cheap that we think he'll he'll achieve He's got every all the tools in the toolbox man. He's a phenomenal nominal quarterback so this is up there man. This this is up there. Obviously time doing what time is done for so many years. This is kind of passing on the garden. My opinion i think this will be the game. Where is you may not want to get it. You probably put time and in the bucks. Oh okay okay. They should know. Td td. Tom has already earned. He's already win or lose. He's still the greatest player in the history of the nfl. And he's a michigan. No one is ever going to take that away to the phrase so it's okay it's okay it's all right i i think i think the listen again the to me. The better story would be if the homeless was able to win. And kinda you kinda now you. It's not like now you. You really see it. The passing of the guard. You see tom going out but man and then you see the young patrick mahomes win a second super bowl. And he's on his way And i think that's. That's how i was going to play out. But yeah it but this is one game trying to break it down. And i'm just struggling because every time. There's a point as a counterpoint. Okay chiefs to have this well but the bucks defense that can do this. You know and then you got tom brady. He's always like they're the sort of the equalizers time braid okay. Tom any question you ask and tom. Brady's names in there. You check tom. Brady off the little. We dot com too long. And he's proven wrong so many times but then you got patrick mahomes and you say well we got time. But we'd i pack it. It's gonna be fun man. I i don't know yet. I'm still processing this This matchup and with you have plays out but it should be a high scoring game. Should be fun to watch and people Enjoy this moment man. You may not ever see this kind of match again. Terrell davis here on the rich eisen show and because we are. I mean the brightest chinese objects are the quarterbacks usually and we've just gone over this quarterbacks matchup being potentially the greatest we've ever seen and it's only going to maybe be as you pointed out Greater a bigger story in a bigger memory as mahomes moves on in his career and brady eventually going to retire. We just don't know when so nobody's talking about the running game at all. And we have a seventy percent chance of rain on super sunday as we're standing here or sitting here talking on a thursday terrell davis so how do you see the running backs potentially raising their hands and saying. Don't forget about us and we can actually make the difference point there and we were talking about that com this week in terms conditions and if the filter slick and that to me leans a little bit towards tampa favor you know with leonard fournette and lana jones and stop by madonna their left tackle and works there Rookie plant phenomenon. The right right right. Tackle phenomenal season. gino right in the center. They're lying has played really well. These last couple of games. So i will give the not tampa. If that's the case they know the chief has clyde edwards lara's coming back and remember last year. Lsu game he played championship schulman. He was he was. So you put on us. All i know i know. Joe burrow was was the man in that game but bidding go to joe burrow. It would've envy people that would have gone to climb over there and so If they got him back healthy he's another one that can give you everything between the tackles streams You know whatever you can dump it up short and have long run so it just depends on me. I think the weather conditions may play a role in that. Because i think the chiefs if if it's wet it'll limited chief in terms of their their horizontal running game run those jet sweeps at the edges right And if you you to me in wet conditions ropley. It was really just kind of about going forward. You know you can just kind of pounds way forward. You didn't want to do anything outside. Because a lot of times it's just too too slick out there I think the the bus would probably get the nod. it's with condition. Terrell davis here On the rich eisen show on the offensive line for the chiefs is As you know the tackles are are out unbelievable. Fisher tearing his achilles and mitchell schwartz two of the best in the business The center We're assuming that dan kilgore is going to be healthy to go. He's currently and covert because you've got a haircut from a barber who popped in the middle of kilgore's haircut as a matter of fact. Yeah did you see that. Did you see his avatar where he posted his picture with half his hair on the head. Did you start on the screen right now. It's it's classic. So the chiefs are louis. The chiefs are loose. So how does the of the shuffling the offensive line play. I do think yeah. Well you got andrew wallet even interior guy who plays guard so he he gets kicked out to right tackle. Then you got like ramos goes from left. Tackle all the weights right tackle to left And bliss and that's it from you know that's not no that's no easy task especially since you have on the other players you know the guy's going because ap shaq barrett you know john mccain to all those guys And that's that's no easy task there. But i think the chiefs can do things i think things like when we played teams have really good. Pass rush This as you. Can you can have your backs chip as they released. You can put tight end over there. You can do screens You know you can do draw plays you. Obviously the ball can come out fast. You can move the pocket. No so andy. Reid is going to have a game plan to make sure he's not putting those guys on an island now. There are going to be some place where they have hold up. That's just the way it is gonna have to hold up one on one Because the chiefs. I to get five and two to the route. They don't wanna keep everybody and she's going to be able to cloy five people out and making and so those kind that's when they're going gonna have to hold up and the bugs and todd bowles is not the fine. You know kind of a chess matches. Do i pressure. What do i don't crush her. And he's got to figure out how to try to keep the chiefs on balanced with that pressure package. And then come home. You gotta hit home every once in a while. I mean you gotta be able to get there and try to create some play to make moms either turn the ball over or get him for a a huge fact mahomes is he takes characters and most times they pay off. But we've seen in scramble. He'll retreat in a pocket and go twenty yards backwards. Well you gotta make those those those tax The bills had time today. They hit a homeless but the second that he escaped and completed a pass. So i think the buck happened to davis here on the rich eisen show walked me through it. It's like getting ready for super bowl now. Obviously nobody's ever gotten ready for one in a pandemic so normally if you could say you know. Let's let's go out to dinner. Let's take in a movie. Let's try and forget things or or something or players. I've seen players getting a you know like van or abbass or whatever and go out to dinner in a private room or whatever to try and blow some steam off. But that's out that that's not happening this week. So what what was what was it like for you. Just senator friday saturday next sunday. Yeah for young yes so. This is the on thursday this. This is the day During the week were we start to really kind of focus on the game. You know this Thursday practice for us was like are the really important practice the one where we have had the only did it's a couple of our installs We did our inside run game one game period with pads on we will take your pads off and for me mentally. This is when i started to started really started to get the game kind of focus. You don't wanna prepare to some. You know the two weeks long time to be prepared for game for two weeks to me. It's like overcharging the battery. Sometimes you could start a over thinks the game if you start preparing for any differently than you do a normal game so thursday. Were big game. That i'm starting to get ready to see the game plan a little bit. More than friday was our final practice of the week when it was half day We would try to make sure our practice was chris that we didn't have any mistakes catching the ball and make sure that i wasn't doing anything from a mental standpoint It okay. i had the game plan down So yeah so the stages to it and you wanna you want to build up toward the game But also say that what i whatever. I was dan during the season. Whether typically friday night like we would go out to dinner As a team just have a good time. Keep doing that you know. Don't don't change the routine up because the super bowl and try to keep things as normal as possible which is tough to do. I know what it is a big game but the team that can keep things kind of normal and don't over think the game and then come into the game prepare like they would in a regular games. You know rental game should be able to perform Play well maybe but right now. I'm on the planet. I haven't played in twenty years right. I'm getting excited to me to get hyped up on thursday man. I know me too. And so you have to you point out. follow routine and make sure that you follow your routine. And certainly if you're superstitious. Follow your your superstitions. What was your superstition terms of preparing for a game. Td what did you man combined with. Mild was the night before the game. Yep what you think's well toothpaste friday night. I had to go to restaurant They people carl landry food. That was if i was denver. We had to go ask both time. Go landry seafood on friday night and then and then and then the night before the game had to have of analyze screen play eminem peanut on eminem's plane and then i would have to take a bad if you knew my bad my bad. What type of bath. td said. i had to take a bubble bath. Forty game. I had to get in a bubble bath for the game that had to it. So you had to okay so when you go on the road. Did you bring the bubbles with you or what did you. How did you do such a thing for the super bowl instance. Well most times. They got a little shampoo Faith was it like the soap and shampoo. Were there you ever. Have you ever set to somebody. I've gotta have my bubbles. Go get me my bubbles. Have you ever. Do you have a bubble boy who actually would go and get it for you. Did you ever have that. No but i know. I didn't have a no i didn't have but one game. We played the bills in buffalo and we were actually snowed in denver so we didn't leave until super late so we got the buffalo. It had to be about two or three o'clock in the morning because denver was shut down. We didn't think we were going to be able to fly out that day. We fly saturday simply go to buffalo and get the truth weekday morning. I couldn't i get a by. I got from october students. I was tired the whole morning i am. I am like thinking about this at breakfast and my dad. I didn't take my five. You know so. I'm thinking i'm thinking i have cost us the game and i know i'm gonna play for them because i didn't think the backs Working you know. Play the game. And i think i had over two hundred yards rushing mike that so yeah so i know that. Even though we think mike superstitions of most times they're just mental right. That could make you feel good to do them anyway. Even though they have no bearing on your performance maso kind of dispel. That whole you know about bubble bath. That i need one. Maybe feel good but you still took the bath after that. You still you went back. I went back or she went back. Went back to routine absolute but you ran for two hundred yards in the day where you did not get actually take the bath before the game. That actually happened. Say two hundred overtime to overcome. That helps that. Helps push the stats. But hey look it just says you wake up with it or you do not. Terrell davis sets. It's essentially. what you're saying. You either wake up with it or you do not in the it being talent that puts you in the pro football hall of fame period and distorting before i let you go a. How's your defy water business doing through that going. It's going rate so we released our performance.

They didn't breeze through these playoffs. They shouldn't have beaten the jaguars they shouldn't they did they. It's not like they have displayed. This own my god that nobody's going to be able to deal with. Our defense has been an amazing defense throughout the whole season. I really see i defense and our front four getting to brady if we get the brady. It's going to be a problem and we run the ball very well. It's going to be a grinding game in folders. Going into this game was so much confidence at the last game. He's got so much confidence. I don't care what you say. You can't be confident confidence. I have to be. I don't care what you tell me.

Eight four four two four rich number to dial so put terrell davis down for a chiefs. Close chris she's chiefs scored thirty eight thirty six right gopher. Christopher had so. What's the most likely outcome on sunday. The bucks went big bucks close chiefs big chiefs when a close swan matt asking you to weigh in richmond under the results. So far chiefs win a close one. Forty four percent bucks close. Twenty eight percent chiefs big twenty four percent and bucks big milk three percent ben and mississippi. You're on the rich. Eisen show is take your call. What's going on ben. How you been. Rigid house in bruce arians. I'll be tweet. i love it. Poll question the first costing winston new york city. Wino- don't want don't want it but here's why call so overwhelmed storylines that we've talked about pretty much for the last two weeks and super bowl the one that we really don't talk about a lot super bowl blowout. I'm calling grits. I'm calling my shot straight through to go post. We've only had three super bowl loss in the last night. Same twenty years. I got the buccaneers big by at least seventeen points. I don't trust that. Kansas city office a lot and i know they got patrick mahomes and they got the whip is i know about but i think the buccaneer special with them right especially with the defense. I know it can be faced with family. But i've got the buccaneers man on sunday written by at least seventeen well ben since syria started this. Call quoting bruce arians on our program from last week i will respond in kind to your comment. Smoking would do it. Do thanks for the call. Thanks for the call them. That's been in mississippi by seventeen you cannot take no no no not even close to road not as homes after they'd have to the chiefs at have to suffer a considerable injury for that. Thank you may be right. Could you imagine if the chiefs do fall down by double digits. The torpedoes that will be damned by the offensive minds of read and oh and the enemy. The stops that will be pulled out at that point. Forget it no say down i. Nobody has safe. You're right no leader safe again. Well interns last in terms of anything's possible. Don put that photograph that you showed me during the commercial break. Up of warner His first attempted winning two super bowls. Look at warner and brady shaking each other's hands before that super bowl all the young brady looks look. How young warner looks and these were gonna hook up for. Nfl game day morning. Eight and a half hour pre-game show on on sunday. Look at this photograph super bowl. Thirty four correct there in new orleans and thirty six thirty six party at thirty six. That's right my bad thirty six looking at a this anything's possible brady. And warner two guys for certify the anything that's possible anything is possible scenario in the nfl. Kurt warner's story as we all know is going to be made a movie one day and brady who thought on that day. Okay this is just the first of and backwards aca. Here's here's here's the stat we've been saying stats about brady over and over and over again about trying to put in perspective. We're trying our best to put in perspective tom. Brady's remarkable ascension to the mount rushmore of american sports. Forget the nfl. We can't compare him anywhere in the nfl anymore. Honestly is not what we're now. We gotta talk about bill russell. I mean the stat that i saw on opening night on. Nfl game on nfl. Networks opening night Show on monday. Night that i hosted if brady wins this. He joins only four other people that have won seven championships in their respective sport with three. Mvp's in the sport as well nobody. There's only four guys dimaggio mantle. Berra bill russell. That's it this out now. Cram while in team sports. But here's the one that. I think that really sums it all up. Tom brady on super sunday when he plays in his tenths. To rule in super bowl fifty five he will have been played in eighteen percent of all super bowls. That's insane and thirty. Five of them were played before he played in one. That's insane eighteen. Percent of all super bowls will have had tom brady quarterbacking in it and thirty. Five super bowls were played before he played in his first. That's come on that's not. I think that sums it all up. We could go about number of rings in the number of appearances and how that obviously dwarfs everybody. But that's it. Let's talk super bowls. How many of them feature. Tom brady as of sunday. Eighteen pla rounding down an eighteen point to present right and thirty five super bowls were played before brady stepped foot onto the turf for a single one of it's amazing man dominated him joking. Well i mean again you. I got him twice and foles once polls got him falls. Got him three years ago Today that'll be frontloaded right now. I'll front right now. Don't take this cheese people. Do not if mahomes wins. Don't take the cheese. That he's played in ten but six and four ereck like he's barely above five hundred. Don't take the cheese ca- some ass hats in my industry are going to try. Try it. they're going to do it. They're going to say click on it. They're gonna click on it. Let's talk about it. Let's go against him. Let's stop authors. Don't do it. And yes. I use the word ass hats which makes tj. Jefferson's day. i walk. And i know he likes it when i do that. I like to know me. Well he loves it. When salty rich shows up on the show and i am a little salty last night just going through my twitter feed and i was scrolling just like the hypocrisy. I saw in sports and also the political. Put the phone down. But i'm just telling you the entirety of brady's career don't take the cheese if he loses six and four what we need to know two things one. His legacy is already achieved his legacy as we all know is too much is never enough yep too much is never enough that legacies salted a longtime ago and certainly with this appearance and with us appearance eighteen percent point to of super bowls will feature. Tom and thirty five of the big games were played before he ever played in one of them. Come on and his first super bowl. I quarterback he got on super sunday. Is my quarterback on super sunday. Kurt warner coming up speaking of I was gonna say just about brady. He took the bucks to the super bowl like the button. The first year i will occur took the cartons the super bowl the bucks. Okay the first year so speaking of speaking of salty in love it when you love it. When i'm salty. I when eric stonestreet is salty the modern family star my friend. Can you do this for me. Don if you don't mind so. I woke up to this today. I'm like what is what's eric garner ryan. Petkoff is a. I believe a member of the chiefs organization that A member of the pro football focus families was pointing out about The justin houston Roster move and that brad features perfect stonestreet is just basically clearly as a thumb on the pulse of a locker room understands the full breadth and scope of situations from both personnel at cap perspective and considers what may be for the greater good of an organization player before he tweets. Just stay in your lane ryan. Okay meaning the ryan who is taking his point of view. So he's all sarcastic and he's all salty so i responded on twitter. Salty stonestreet is my favorite stonestreet. Heathen response you gotta dose of quote unquote salty stonestreet after you lone wolf. The bills is and so. I know you know salt when you tasted it. Back your orien- game right now.

REShow: Porter Moser - Hour 2 (03-22-21)

"Last year came and went. And it's behind. This is the rich eisen show with carson. I mean you stuck with him alone. he'll things things. Just start going a little sideways for us. And then and then. I had to make the decision to bench. Live from the rich eisen show studio in los angeles. Look back on it now. And i would have done the same thing. On the show roberts head coach paul mills coming up loyola. Head coach porter foser from nbc sports. Peter king plus ohio university head coach jim bulls and now sitting in for rich. It's din halley. What is often. Ncaa tournament monday. We have a game going on right now as we speak. I don't think there is any argument. That the ncaa tournament is the greatest sporting event. That there is. I love the super bowl. I'm a football guy. An nfl guy super bowl is maybe the biggest singular game but there's no greater tournament in my mind in sports now. Tennis fans are going to argue with me a little bit then the ncaa tournament or taken on iowa right now oregon the seven seed beating iowa. Fifty six to forty six brockman. Is this when we do the update as a shoot out by the way i was just talking about. There are some games. That were the final score. The winning team had a a number in the fifties in oregon. Fifty six at the half. Well that's not Chris brockman to folks in the house as well guys. It is good. I been doing a little bit of everything man doing some college basketball digging into some again. We started this really cool way in show put for pay per view events with daniel cormet one of my broadcast partners. Lor sankoh al jemaine sterling going to be sitting in this friday. They do the weigh ins and then they have the staredown and then they come up and sit on set with us and chop it up for so even dabbling you've been doing some play by play fallas. Well you're getting back in the which one i want to say. You like the best. But like which is the coolest maybe experience what have you. What's kind of grown on you. What do you like about Calling these events well. I started doing play by play with football. Because that's kind of my wheelhouse. When i was working at nfl network and love calling nfl. Games i may just awesome by the way way easier to call an nfl game than college game primarily because of roster size right so you create these spotting boards and fifty three guys. You know that you have to know something about and just through osmosis being around it and the nfl being as big as it. Is you know most of these guys whereas when you're calling a conference usa game and you're going to fau win lane kiffin. Was there any ninety dudes that you have to learn. It's a little bit. It's a little bit tougher and when you do an nfl game the support staff is is. It's everything you need right at every level and when you do some of the smaller college games it's just a little more. It's just a little more difficult. little more. labor intensive really have grown. Love is calling college. Basketball games love basketball. It's just it's so fast and the pace and you really are know. Football is a little more. Okay you have a spotter standing next to you. Have this big chart. You watch what happens. You're just watching the game and you're calling the play but then you have to sometimes make sure your spot or has made the tackle because you can't really tell and you're laying out very formulaic. You know for your color analyst to To do a little talking basketball. You're just you're just going. Look at these basketball guys. A guy will spend an week brockman getting ready for a football game an entire week right. That's that's your job. You call one football game a week. That's why it's so impressive. When is doing the world series. Here's day and doing a sunday game. Breezy and i remember a couple years ago. Just watching that. And i said anybody who who tweets says a single negative thing about joe buck not liking his style or whatever. Did you stop. Because what he's doing is a yeoman's effort like that very few people can do. What joe buck does during that time here and it doesn't have to do it year round. It's only during the baseball playoffs in the postseason. But it's it's really impressive. But you look these guys the ncaa tournament. They're calling two three games in a row. Yeah right from the right. Have to keep your energy level up which you're probably listen to this. How hard is it to keep your energy level up. We i'm telling you it's not as easy as one would think especially if the game's not good I was watching spirituous. Who's a friend called. His games with with brendan haywood or did a tremendous job. And that guy's just smear appropriate silky. Do just calm cool. The whole way through So anyway the most challenging one has been ufc so got hired to do that a few years ago and call dana white's contender series and really cool events summer series. They have ten fighters they do it for ten weeks and see a firefights on a tuesday. And it's guys who were on the cusp of the ufc. Kind of geyser in the equivalent of let's say aaa baseball and at the end of the night the hook to the show is dana white awards one or more of the fighters you have see contracts. It's dream come true. It is awesome dream realized. So you get that you know reality. Tv show and real live fighting card all in one. That's really cool. But long story. Short i i had to learn ufc. I remember when. I got this gig. I hadn't called before. There was a guy named alan joe ban who's a ufc fighter who. They paired me up with the audition and he came into my house and we watched two hours of fights. It was kind of a ufc for dummies. He just aren't you know this is a rear naked. Choke you know. This is the top position. This is what they're doing on their feet. Just all the you have c. jargon. Yeah and kind of it helped me out through throughout that process. Find yourself being an even bigger fan now much. Y'all much of those situations where you know people say you have to be comfortable being uncomfortable and i think so often we kind of get into our mode and a lot of people are uncomfortable and once they are kind of established. And you don't need to be uncomfortable. But i think it's good to get outside your box into something so that was. That was one of those things where. I'd probably overprepared at times because i didn't want to not know but i'll come off on the broadcast being like. Oh this guy to say what are you saying but you also have to know what you don't know you also have to lean on your analysts in those certain situations so anyway the play by play world yeah probably delve too deeply. But it's a very different thing than then being a sports talk radio host or a studio host. And it's i like being in the moment because you just don't you know you know anything can happen video sports now. It's an by the way that's the future. There's there's a reason that There's one hundred thirteen billion dollars all for their live events. News update brought me. Let's see the news. Hit it with a report of the day's news from the world of sports and entertainment someone who is not a journalist or newsman. By any definition of the word whatsoever. Chris brockman he's a basketball fan of syracuse disrespectful. As i say that dressed how i am ever man. He's in the house. I'm doing this whole show. I'll be back to normal tomorrow normal. Nfl stuff as we talking about. The league is going to hold an in-person april twenty ninth. May i in cleveland limited attendance and protocols for the limiting obviously the kovic spread the league announced monday. Select number of prospects fans media crews will be on site for the draft that is awesome fans attending draft activities will be required to wear face masks coverings and adhere social distancing some of the prospects will be virtual all fans seated near the main stage will be fully vaccinated so exciting that we're getting quote unquote back to normal when it comes to the nfl. Draft thoughts. on that. dan. I love it. I love it. And i'll be curious to see how much the of last year's draft stuff that incorporate meeting do some general managers wanna work out of their home office and have their Some of their scouts join them there or they all going to be back in the war room and and do it as they have in years past. My guess is that most will be doing that because they wanted likely be together again But i just think we talked about this a few minutes ago. The draft being on the road and then turning that into an event as opposed to being inside in new york city every year It was just genius genius genius. I think it's awesome. I cannot wait drives one of my favorite events each year. Couple of free agent things that happened over the weekend county golladay finally signed. He had been holding out for some big money for years. Seventy two million dollars with the new york football giants. How do you like that fit for. Kenny golladay sells video. Saquon working out over the weekend. And of course danny dimes. What do you think about that. Yeah i you know. Kyle rudolph's coming in there to evan. Ingram saquon coming back healthy. I still don't know what we have at the quarterback position with the giants. I don't know about sold on danny dan. I don't know what he is. Either too many interceptions for me at some point you gotta clean that up so he them their best receiving threat obviously since odell left town. And i'm still kind of baffled that he got as much as he did coming off an injury plagued season. I mean he. He was hurt for the majority of this past year and really didn't do much but when he's at his best this is a guy he's six four he can go over. You're going to high point the ball. He needs to have though he needs to have between ninety and one hundred catches double digit ashdown's at thirteen to fourteen hundred yards to make this deal worth it. Yeah you saw the wide. Receiver market was a dry now. These guys didn't go day. One didn't go day to took till the weekend for kenny golladay. To finally get his deal he gets eighteen million. There was hope. I think he was hoping for a little bit more. Maybe per year average there. But do you think this tips. The balance in the east at all is still cowboys. I think washington is kind of. We did a poll last week in washington wanted it as the team to beat in the nfc east. I mean that's magic his allies tonio gibson. Tj you're you're a big dallas fan right and you know this. Yeah well as you know. I'm a big washington fan. So we're willing water right now but i feel like you for so i want to hear your taking him. Actually to be honest. I'm a little jealous. Because there are times when i wish i was a dallas fan as you know being from the washington area. If you're not a washington fan your cowboys fan. There are a ton of cowboys who i hear. There's there's a ton in threes and the reason is is very simple. Washington was the last team to integrate and a lot of team. A lot of guys who live there and grew up. There's like i'm not rooting for this team. And so they were cowboys fans going back for decades. And so when your grandpa's a cowboys fan and then your dad's a cowboys fan. You grew up cowboys fan so there is a massive love. Hate relationship in washington. Dc with with washington football team. Fans cowboys fan. I i. I love the defense in washington Ryan fitzpatrick is what what is he. He's he's hot and he's cold. There's there's he's gonna be exciting. It's exciting. I don't know that he makes them better. Hell do you realize this. Do you know that last week. Someone in the studio remain nameless literally made a case for ryan fitzpatrick to be entered into the old halls of the pro football hall of fame. Do you believe that was somebody who's sitting in the house is in his someone in this room right now said the and clearly wasn't me wasn't delta chest. I'm sure who's more worthy of hall of fame. Enshrinement boring three yards a carry frank gore or the most exciting man in football ryan fitzpatrick got the most sunny beard. But i will say. I will say this about frank gore. He solidified his. And this is where i kind of have an issue and i understand where you're coming from. He solidified his fame status and he is a hall of fame running back over the last five years by. Just kinda racking up seven eight hundred yards. Easter pylori point two yards per carry. But he's you don't turn into red zone to see frank gore. Take it two yards and caught you. Turn into red zone to see fits. Bajic tight windows throwing bombs fist-pumping beard popping out of his helmet postgame. Great shirts come on. Thanks my fist got there. Is this thing about ryan fitzpatrick. That i think he's just a tad bit overrated under appropriate. Over is what i. I think you're this right now. I mean no offense around fitzpatrick but the dues played on like seventeen teams already opinions. That body count would be that jersey countless should. I say it would be far lower than what it is. He's great and exciting for like four games a season. what about the other twelve. Well fits magic's going to be starting his. Nfl team in nineteen remarkable. What he has achieved in the last five years of his career because he was a complete afterthought for the most part outside of the good in buffalo. Right to terrel owens three four years ago and we were talking about tony romo donovan. Mcnabb and some of the great quarterbacks that he's played with and of course in classic te'o fashioned. When i said who's your favorite quarterback i've ever played with thinks about it. Pauses live on the air for five seconds ryan patrick. What's his favorite quarter. Obviously it's not going to be done of it okay. We we know those two did not get along well but tony romo not his favor quarterback and te'o played steve young. Any cried for tony ryan. Fitzpatrick was favorite quarterback of all met like as a human being. They were not you know. I think he loved them. And this is why receivers love them because he trusts those guys and he'll take chances. He is the antithesis of what they had this year. And alex smith and alexander smith is not a risk taker. He's these the game manager type guy. So yeah they're pretty excited about about fits in in washington i just. I can't get excited about the giants. I can't really get excited about dallas. I mean. I think that we're looking at a cowboys team. That could be moving on from. Zeke elliott in two years. Whoa once they get to that contract and not going to be on the hook for once they get through the guaranteed portion of that contract tony. Pollard productivist zeke. Known empowers pretty good last year. Yeah i think that contract will get restructured. But i mean come on. There's a reason ezekiel elliot. When forth in the draft and tony pollard. Didn't like there's a definite he's tj. Where did trent richardson gonna drop. He went third hoping you comparing richardson. Like eight thousand more yards rush address and it drafts raft status when they get to the end of that contract I just. I think things are going to be interesting there. There's there's a lot of work to be done for every team in in the nfc east and as you spin through the talk shows on all the sports networks it is constantly. We call it a lower third graphics on the bottom of your screen. It's nfc east right. That's they're all talking about. Is the giants. Obviously with kenny golladay. That puts them back in the news. Right off the top of the quarterbacks specifically last. Nfc east and we'll move onto some nba which quarterback in the nfc east excites excites you. The most for twenty twenty one is jalen hurts. We haven't mentioned you. I don't know that he excites me. The most but there's the most intrigued there. I think we know what. We're gonna have with ryan fitzpatrick. I think dak was spectacular when he was healthy last year because he had to be new. And i think we know what we have with back. That's also a question. Mark coming off of the injury. Yeah it is not as much as he listen. he's he has the contract. Everything solidified the guys top ten. Nfl quarterback. i. I'll be curious to see if like two years from now if we still call dak prescott topped. Nfl quarterback. i think he's good. Not great but jalen hurts. I think is also potentially good not great and is that going to be good enough in philadelphia because that is the it was going to say the second toughest sports market in america to plan. It might just be tougher than new york city. It's it's tough to play in philly and when you're winning everything's great and i talked about quick. Yeah it does. And i talked about having mike tannenbaum on on my podcast last week. And he of course was the general manager for the jets for a long time. And when you're in a sports market like a new york like chicago and dc are good sports towns. But they don't they don't compare to those nothing else in my mind compares to those to you hear it whether you want to hear it or not players and coaches can say they don't read it but you hear it from your family and your friends and it's always brought to your tension and i think some people just shrivel up and they're not made for that. I think jalen hurts. Has the potential to be made for that. The question is how how. How good can he be on the upper level of good. Is he going to be on a scale of one ten. Is he going to be a seven and a half or is he gonna be a six and a half. What's your bar like quarterback wise as you measure them who visit put him is as good as calamari when you sing. Patrick mahomes is a ten. Obviously as you go down this where would you put. The the sample size is so small with with hurts. I just think with with jalen. We've seen his ceiling. He was beaten out in college by two right. He went to oklahoma and played. Well i don't i don't love. I don't love jalen as an elite quarterback. I think he's like. I said i think he's good. Not great i think is just one notch below great. I think he's also good. Not great division interesting. You get ryan fitzpatrick come. He's the second best quarterback in the division beyond that. There's no argument there. We don't we just up but you don't know what you have and hurts. You don't know what you having daniel jones and this is a huge year for daniel tells you this is it right. You're going to be at the end of that rookie contract you're gonna you're either going to get paid or you're going to get cut that's it and if you're in new york you've got to figure that out you got to figure out what you have heck the jets don't know what they have with. Sam darnold it. Looks like they're potentially going to be keeping him around unless there's some massive trade and they flip him for jimmy. Garoppolo would san francisco. I don't know what what you get for. Sam darnold a second round draft choice. I don't think anybody's giving up a first rounder at this at this time but the quarterback situation around the nfl as it's fascinating to me because we thought there would almost be more movement going into the off season The schefters of the world were saying. There's twelve teams. That are set a quarterback. You got the rest of the league. They can have a new starting quarterback next year. And you talk about being draft. You talk about zeke. Being a top. Five pick sam darnold the number two pick in the draft. And that's i think that's saving him right now because there are so many people like our good buddy daniel jeremiah. Who loves sam. Darnold coming out that year and still haven't given up on him and what is what is. Dj dj is a former scout for an nfl team. And that's the front office. The jets is saying the same thing man. We had a pretty good great on this guy. Like maybe we aren't. We can change him now. Adam not here anymore right. We can make him what he was supposed to be. But i'm fascinated by the number of quarterbacks that are going to go in the topic picks. I'm also i'm also this shawn watson. Situation is bananas. And what does that do from a from a football standpoint in terms of potential trades that could be. There could not be there. There was a report that several teams are still enquiring despite all the allegations of sexual harassment by massage therapist which now by the way is up to ten in the last week. So this is this is something again. That we'll touch on with with peter king. But you know this is that that could change. It's a whole ripple effect. Sean goes somewhere. What happens to the next guy online. I thought that there could be an interesting marriage and carolina. I thought they would find a way to make that work. But i believe they're the eighth pick in the draft. The panthers so that they'll they'll be picking a quarterback if they don't find a way to to make that work but there's so much there's so much to get to in the i mean literally is i. It's it's a never ending. We can do about it. Yeah we have already talked to the best cinderella story. We have another porter. Moser had coach of loyal if chicago which is in the sweet sixteen once again coming up a bit later in the show. Dan heavily rich is on the rich. Eisen show gonna take a quick break and we will be back here in just a moment. Do you own a wrench. Your home sure you do and i bet it can be hard work you know.

This is the last day usurp brett farve will ever not be hall of famer from sunup to sundown. I haven't thought about that. Why you're on the perspective guy. What are your thoughts about the enshrinement here for the pro football. Sometimes it's been as we were talking prior to coming on. It's been a busy year or last eight months. I guess and you almost kinda get inundated with all the stuff rather than just kind of like soaking all in like this is really just an incredible honor. Have you thought about who was going to present you an summer. Yeah we'll tell you all know. Let me sit there for a few seconds like that. I mean i'm going to prior to coming on here drama. Yeah i did so you trauma rich so you know it is right now. Does that person know. Voters sort of sort of sort of. I told you when you were starting out and bag that you'd be a pro football famer with two grandchildren on a day that you're going would you know i wouldn't have believed you know it would be really. It's just hard you know. Yeah physically but to be good or good enough for that long craig. So everything i ever of hope would happen has has come true. And then you realize that after tomorrow night when you're enshrined about is your less chance to announce a comeback. I'm you know. I was gonna ask you like say sunday. I said you know. I think i'm gonna play another. You can't do that you can you do that on. Nfl game day morning. Will you make that announcement on. Nfl feel sunday morning. Wake up you know. It's a super sunday. You might feel that you do miss it although one day where you're just happened. I really don't I missed the counter. The nonthaburi stuff funny events and stuff right but not if you see a big win. Yeah that's good but the other team yes. I don't miss being the other team and it's just a matter of time before the bad hits four. I'll miss that back friends. Dan halley filling in for rich eisen on the rich eisen show before we get a little. Nba news tweet coming in from chief's fan in la. This is brian. You're talking about ryan. Fitzpatrick fits magic. Is this generation's doug flutie. Brian says fitz wins big games the upset new england so the chiefs could have the one seat on the way to the ring and they got bench for two. We'll having his team in the playoff picture. This i will say about fits magic. He is perhaps the most exciting quarterback of our generation perhaps but there was a crack in the armor when he was benched for two when he said that this was very difficult and very sad right. Remember i didn't expect that. And i actually thought that it would affect his value. Was a free agent. Because you're supposed to be a mentor now. It only lasted like a day right. And then he was over and then he helped to then he played again but that was. I was really surprised by now. The timing of the benching obviously was surprising in miami. But perhaps there's a crack in the armor as they washington football team fan. I hope that that's been repaired. Because i don't wanna see that crack in the armor yet Although taylor heineke little different than than to tunga by law anyway. That's enough on fits. Nba news. We have some some big-time injuries. That are on the forefront. Right now brooke. Yeah big time big time. Bummer too so i ll start with lebron. he's out at definitely. The dreaded high ankle sprain. Saturday night against the hawks. Two hours after the game. The lakers cities down definitely saw report. That it's going to be about three weeks. Maybe at least. But obviously anthony davis has employed in a month now. Lebron's out and now. The nets are the favourite betting wise to win the championship. Obviously not good here for the lakers. Know it's awful and it sounds like the lakers are planning on a month that that he's going to be out. Yeah and of course. Anthony davis out as well. Marcus all their starting center. Not playing right now either. They're starting lineup against the sun's kyle kuzma. Dennis schroder markeith morris. Wes matthews in case ep. That's that's a little different now. That european egypt by quality. So the big question for me is if you're the lakers. Right now with the trade deadline coming up at three. Pm eastern time on thursday. Do you need to make a move because right. Now you're sitting at third in the standings. And i think with the lakers after coming off what they did last year with everybody healthy. You're you're not really worried about where you're seated and less and less you fall all the way down to a seven seed and then you have to do that. Plan yes tournament and then all of a sudden thinks can get interesting. Yeah right mike bound. Suddenly it's over and so do you need to acquire somebody before the train. It like a big guy off. Aaron gordon. he's kind of on the block and orlando center riches on the block. I get a guy like gordon like maybe you just have to be expensive potentially but maybe you just have to wait for the buyout market and get it get get andre drummond right. Let me like that comes in and immediately makes an impact with these guys. Out for the lakers. Yeah but i mean as as we as we look at the standings here it's third place right now but they're they're not th- they lose five or six games in a row. And all of a sudden jockeying with the spurs for the seventy eight hundred and that playing even that three holds d- does anyone wanna piece of dame time in the playoffs way. He's not going to hold you. Think they're dropping ferguson. Lebron out. There's no way i mean you've seen the numbers without lebron. Anthony davis i mean. They're they're outscored. Every single game just looking at casey p wes matthews schreuder kuzma marquee more. I mean that's that's their starting lineup right now that. That's that's not a playoff caliber starting lineup. That's that's. I'm not gonna make some funny g. league nba guys. That's that's not a. That's a playoff caliber. Starting lineup and the question is at what point how. How much time do you need if you know. Eighty is going to come back before lebron one would expect you know with the caf and the achilles issue but he's going to need some ramp up to you. Don't just throw them out there. Play a game. You know he's going to be on a pitch count like blake griffin is right. Now you know he's going to be playing fifteen minutes a game for awhile. How many games you need with a d. and lebron back on the court together before you feel comfortable going into the pl- five six. I don't know something like that. I mean there's date. I mean you don't wanna play dame. You don't wanna play luca in the first round. The nuggets are so dangerous and there are five right now. The playoffs is going to be is going to be dynamite. And and the other bump bummer injury news over the weekend lamelo ball rookie of the year favourite for charlotte took a really bad fall. You could see him grabbing his wrist or in the game wo zhe and everybody saying fractured wrist. Isan such a bummer. Because he was so exciting to watch made the hornets kinda league past favorite team. How exciting they were with hayward and rosiere devante grandma's back. Pj washington but Bummer news lamelo going to miss the rest of the year. Yeah we were talking about this a little bit earlier. All the sudden hornets Who are currently in the eight seed in the east twenty and twenty one are relevant and they have to twenty points per game scores. You said both of them. Regime gordon hayward but i don't think anybody really knows that because we were so smitten with lamelo. Yeah sixteen six and six. The kid has been unbelievable far better than i thought he was going to be. And all of a sudden the ball family has a couple of guys that are gonna be are making and we'll be making serious money. I saw a story where michael thomson. Klay thompson. dad who's here in. La on the radio and calls lakers game. Said i would love to see lonzo in golden state. And oh wow. They didn't pick up in new orleans that last rookie option in the contract so all the sudden lonzo he can shoot better. He's distributing well. He's averaging almost fifteen points per game he's gonna make sixty to eighty million dollars in his next deal. Could that be in golden state from the nba to college basketball. We're going after the break porter. Moser oilla of chicago's head basketball coach joining us to talk a little. Nc turning their cinderella cinderella run run once again it's a podcast about money but stacking benjamin's great financial insight. It's laid back with humor too.

Alright onscreen first words ever said and it was a three of those three things add when they were there. We go all right all right. Dan heli for rich eisen on the rich. Eisen show once again. Chris brockman. Tj jefferson. mike dilatot all with us currently belus you guys ready to Talk to another one of the great stories and the ncaa tournament. let's go. Oh man these guys porter moser head coach chicago. Hey coach how you doing. I'm great how are you. We are doing so well so glad to actually have an ncaa tournament to be talking about. I know the only people happier than for the guys that are that are playing in it and coaching in. Like you are congratulations. By the way you guys are just the third team to beat a number one seed in the second round by double digits wire-to-wire over number one seed illinois What is this ride. Been like for you. I know you made the final four a couple years ago. So i don't want to say you're used to it but this is not new at least for a couple of the older guys in your team. You know we got. We got two guys that were on that team. Lucas williamson it camera crew. But everybody else is new. So what's what's really great about. This is just enables and sustain it the program and just to it was a big reason. Why state has just know feeling like you can just keep building something special and all the things we had to go through this year. The twists and turns. The pivots can get to this point and you know to get in here and then in our state of illinois two ranked teams going at each other to go to the sweet sixteen in the story. Line couldn't have been better for the little the ramparts going into this thing. I was an unbelievable story line. And oh by the way you guys get a play with a big old chip on your shoulder because the committee i think screwed the pooch giving you guys eight seed when you've been ranked in the top twenty five for over a month in your top ten in the net and ken palm and all these other metrics. What did you say to your guys when when you got that you know what. I'm always talking about control. You can control so he you know. I think we all kind of new like you. What all right. Let's roll with it. Let's just go. And because you know the crazy thing about it is. They came up with the net. And what is the net stand for. It's the ncaa evaluation tool. That's what they said they were going to use and we were nine so the the one through four got all the one seeds five through eight got all the two seeds and the ninth got the so. It just is what it is. I know it's a hard job. I know they got things so we really didn't make that big of a chip on her shoulder. Kind of thing. We just said all right. let's go. Let's it's all about porn into georgia tech and we. We beat them and it was all about illinois. And that's kind of what we did last time. We didn't worry about a lot of the stuff that was just was in front of us and our guys are guys just really close together and just have this confidence that they believe they can win the national championship and last time we were seven minutes away we know we got some obstacles in front of us but our guys believe dan howley filling in on the rich eisen show with water moser the head coach coach loyal chicago. I coach. i have to ask you. Because i was doing a little deep dive and watch some youtube videos of some interviews and podcasts. That you've done and there was. I can't remember who it was but he talked about. What great friends you guys worth top of the podcast and then mispronounced your last name. You call them right from the jump. And i love. That is somebody who gets. My name is pronounced all the time. I really appreciated that. I it was two miles. Yeah yeah and he was a great friend of mine. And i was just joking with him when he said that he just he he's advisor on that do how funny he is it. Fifty fifty the amount of people to say mosier as opposed to moser. What exactly it is. It's it's actually more say mosier like it's s. h. and I really could care less. I'm not one of those. I really don't care But i just had to bus. Tim's chops on it. I love it. I love it. Why i thought that was pretty funny as i said you know my last name's halley. I can't tell you how often people just don't want to say hell. So they'll say or halle halle name coach. Nothing i can do about it. Hey so. I love the emphasis on defense. You guys are the best defensive team in the country. And i'm wondering why it's so hard. So many coaches preach defense but man that you make it happen. Your players make it happen but you guide them along that process this this. Go all the way back to when you attended Bobby knight camp when you were a kid this love of. I wish i could say that but no i don't even know my memory that long. The I tell you what i worked for rickman jars and You know he was so good defensively. But i think it's how we frame it you know with our guys in the recruiting process. You know sometimes you say oh. We're gonna play defense they think. Oh we're gonna slow it down. We gotta we gotta frame it like our defense creates offense. You know we we get stops. We can run. We deals we can run and we talk about we frame it. With how like in the pros. Everyone's talking about two way players. You know kobe. Michael qui- klay thompson two way players and we frame it that way. Hey you're gonna learn we're we're gonna play great defense. We're going to create offense. We argued because we've been up at the top. You know forty in offense efficiency as well and so. I think it's how you frame it. The guys believe in it. They don't think we're just gonna walk it up. They think we're gonna guard or tails off. Gets austin run. So they they really believe it's a it's a way we can win wigan williamson their as your as your senior leaders who had been there before. How do you lean on these two guys. You know what it's huge 'cause you know so. We want to missouri valley tournament two weeks ago. And we cut down the nets for celebrating. You can see all the guys because we're we've got a lot of new guys and they were just so excited and we had a celebration cut up. We win the locker room and those two were like you guys. This is awesome but it gets a lot better. And when you gotta when you guys got voices that come from your peers your your friends. It's just carries more weight because the coach always say that happened before. You know we gotta do this but when those guys said it it gets a lot better from here. We got a lock in you. Know we can advance and believe you can advance in this thing and Just huge just having those guys been on that stage at the final four Couple of years ago. It's also huge to have one hundred and one year old sister jean. She became a phenomenon nationally. Just beloved by everybody when you guys made the final four run a couple years ago. The pre-game speech before the illinois game do you give her a scouting report or is she doing on our own. I mean she just looked at the stats and she you know she's she said you know it's funny. Sometimes they'll say oh. What number thirty five you know. She's she's unbelieveably sharp now But it's funny how it's kind of morph into a it But she's so much a part of who we are she does give the The guy's a blessing before they go. And you know this this time through the phone but You know one hundred one years old. She's still emails us one of us after the game every and she was just really sharp. And you know she's She's what went in the fabric of who we are. Hold on a second. She when you say each one of us as in just the coaching staff the players. Everybody know i personally melvin. She's each player personal email after every game. That's incredible every game. I my inlaws who are far from one hundred and one do not send emails. That's that's impressed. Wall might i. I want to correct myself. My father-in-law does my mother-in-law doesn't so they could be watching which i don't want to get yourself in trouble with inland. You know about that. What is was it. Was there a question about coming. I would imagine being a hundred one. And she didn't attend a game arch madness which is the missouri valley tournament in saint louis. They didn't let go. And then i talked to her after we got back and she was pissed. She was like i'm going. I looked at all in the eye. And said i'm healthy and all you i've been vaccinated. I got thirty straight tests. I'm going and right then. I knew like she's she's getting her way and Sure enough She's here and everybody's fired up that she's up in the balcony. Sister gene is a beast. I love it. Oh gosh. I team to watch. It's fun to watch you guys play. She's a great story. I i love your ties to rick. Majerus he was one of my favorite coaches just from afar when he was at Utah way back in the day. I love the way that his his team played. I saw that you started journaling for the last decade. That i'm going to do and i have yet to do it but you started doing that because a majority is that right. Yes right you just you know. Want him just every day. I was learning stuff so i had like a basketball journal. Going and then. I had another side one of just crazy hilarious stories. And i'm like. I gotta start writing this down. I mean there's just so much that was you know and then we get together guys. That were played for him and then coast with them. We'll see each other and we'll just start telling stories and just laugh and so. I started writing them down and i got about one hundred pages just hilarious stories. I'll sit up on my firepit sometime but just start laughing rehashing. Some of the story. He meant so much to me but he was also great friend hilarious guy so much fun but he was a genius to city there in years. I spent his associate coach at saint. Louis we just sitting in a boardroom. Like watching his mind twist and turn and game plan and it was. It was like i was getting a phd from the guy. I just meant a lot to me. He's gone way too early did you you. You've written a book using some of those stories. Is that right or no no. No that was a different. Like i always thought if i was going to write a book it was gonna be remember how Steve alford had a book and he put it out and it was called playing for night right. And i remember reading cover to cover like i just thought it was riveting. Just what was like the play for night. And i got. I get asked a question all the time especially my i. You know. I was working for him. It'd be like hey. What's it like working for matures. Everyone always asked me that question. So i was going to write. I was my mind was always going to write a book called working for a shares. And then i got after four i got approached by the loyola jesuit press. I'm like i think they want a different path for this. It was It was more of my path. My journey of faith and My journey of of of how i got to and got to the final four and So ended up doing that. But someday i might do it day. I might do something. And then it'll be won't be disparaging at all it'll be more honoring him but telling funny stories of how you know. 'cause there was no one like there was no one like him in our profession. Yeah he one of the all time greats in an indefinitely a missed by all college basketball fans around the country. I do need to ask you about what you have coming up. The mid west region is just completely turned upside down. You guys are despite being the the eighth seed come to end. You're the second highest seed remaining. And now you have oregon state coming up. What's the what's the scouting report. You have one yet on the beavers. Yeah they're they're very good very hot. I mean think about this. We drew the acc tournament champs. They were hot coming in then. We drew the big ten chance. They were coming in now. We're drawing the pac twelve tournament champs three straight tournament champs power five conferences. so you know they. They're very well coached. Kinko's an awesome job. They're hot they're shooting it. They got a big man. They got a great point guard You know they're gonna be hard to guard. I think that's a big part of it. And then you look at the defense on the other two games with syracuse in houston. You've got to contrast in styles you got houston who's probably plays some of the best man physical defects in the country and then he got syracuse. Who has that long long zone that you just got to figure out. And they're shooting it well so some very hot teams Coming in here and these last four teams finally before we let you go. Dan howley filling in for rich eisen with porter. Moser chicago head coach coach. What are you. What are you doing to keep busy when you guys aren't practicing and playing are you guys. Do you have everything scheduled out every hour. We're doing this. We're watching games together as a team or do guys get free time. I know there's really nowhere to go to kind of do their own thing. So that's a great question Dan halley i listened. No but i tell you. That's when we got here we had to go to corinthian so we got here sunday night. We actually watched election. Show in indy. Five hundred speedway which is really cool. They let us take our buses around because once you checked in the hotel you had to test and get put in quarantine. And i'm like i'm watching selection show with my guys and i'm not doing a separate rooms so we checked in sunday night test and had to quarantine woke up had to test again. Quarantine again so then once. It was almost monday night. When you got out. So really. Tuesday wednesday thursday your your practice and preparing and you don't get to go out outside much but this is the week that we gotta be really aware because another week here you. We haven't had much time to go outside. They really got you in a bubble They really well organized testing. And all that. It's just there's some downtown in this. It's going to be this week. So we've been coming up with some things to get these guys bentley Loose and free and and just so much where they get out and do some things so this week is the big week for for this. Yeah that's gonna be that's gonna be maybe your most challenging job is to find stuff for for the kids to do we talk to paul mills roberts head coach. They're playing. They're playing a kickball game staff versus team. So maybe that gives you an idea something that are they going outside or they will go out there probably gonna during you get like a half hour outside so we were throwing around the football a couple of days ago. That was one thing. We had a football and the baseball field. The guys throwing at a soccer ball but I like to kick idea yeah. That's great wiffle ball. Too i am. I'm a phenomenal wiffle ball player so yeah groper chicago you play sixteen inch softball chicago. Wiffle ball okay right once Chicago guy porter moser. Hey coach good lock man. We're all rooting for you. It's been a pleasure talking to you. I really appreciate the time and enjoy every minute of it. I know you are thank guys. We'll see you. How about porter. Moser saying it's sister. Jeanne was pissed because you can go to the conference tournament. i will leave it. that's amazing. She emails them after every game every every player and every coach on the team gets an email from sister. Jean after every game. This woman is a godsend of as an angel superfan. I totally got myself in trouble with the in laws saying that they don't use email. I shouldn't do just my mother-in-law my father-in-law's in Jeff paul's ohio head coach coming up peter king coming up as well. Dan halley fillon on the rich. Eisen show this. Is dan halley once again filling in for rich eisen show our coming up. Yeah peters in ohio yes. He's an ohio lumpia. Absolutely the old. Bob cats for some reason. Ohio university growing up in suburban dc on the maryland side. Those familiar with dc. It's the dmv the district maryland. Virginia i was on the maryland side but miami of ohio and ohio were two pretty popular schools. for kids from my high school to to apply to. I don't know why that was yet. All the mid atlantic schools right delaware maryland towel. You kids would end up clemson but yeah. Ohio and the bobcats. Last time bob cats relevant in college. Basketball gary trent. Right right who coach bulls played width on that team. So we'll be asking him about that. He also has a really cool group chat with all the players from that team and he said they kind of keep them in line when when things aren't going well and when things are going well after that last win for ohio there were two hundred tax messages on that group shane when they beat Virginia and ohio. of course taking on creighton tonight. I believe that games right around six. Pm eastern time coach kind enough to join us so looking for to com conversation with Jeff balls but before that. I know there's tons of terni talk as there should be. But we're going to dig in a little bit into what's going on in the national football league with peter king one of the great football writers of all time. The new tv deal the draft. Now going to be in. Cleveland and there will be some fans present at the draft. Peter king also gonna talk about free agency in his column last week. He talked about the lack of money. The teams had to spend. They have a third of the money that they had the previous year. And yet there have been some massive massive free agent signings the latest really big one kenny. Golladay of course with the giants a seventy four million dollar contract. That could be worth. Even more. Peter king going to be joining us in just a matter of moments on rich eisen show dan. Halley is here filling in. We are back in a moment.

REShow; Thomas Dimitroff - Hour 1 (04-30-21)

"You ready we're off and running here in cleveland. The rich eisen show with guest host ryan leave second pick. The new york jets. Select zack wilson with the fourteenth. Pick the new york jets. Select elijah very tucker live from the rich eisen show studio in los angeles. Today's guests former falcons general manager. Thomas dmitrov nfl network. Reporter steve waesche plus your complete nfl draft recap and more now sitting in for ridge. It's ryan leave. Welcome welcome welcome everybody to the rich eisen show another day. Wow romance i told you yesterday. There's a bromance on here. can't quit. You can quit guys wanna do. Dj jefferson here to my right jason feller. Eight wasn't to. Chris brockman as always helping me out today. I'm ryan leaf filling in for rich eisen by the way what's up Some go down yesterday. That was kind of a bill. Impact wrestling had a card on kenny. Omega was supposed to come. Kenny omega effendi. Away i did i did like i live reaction show last night and i can only make it through ten picks. I just i was like i'm i'm tired of react into this. I did this all day long. It took four hours and fifteen minutes last night for the first round of the nfl draft. Okay as long as long as long But that's because it's made for television right. It is it is definitely made for television program is a tv program. Kings of leon bring in you know laying sex on fire before the First round nfl. Draft the biggest story the bombshell right. After we got off the air yesterday was all of a sudden. All these stories started percolating coming out that aaron rodgers is done. He thought he was on his way to san francisco wednesday night. He thought he The packers had told him we are going to trade you this offseason and then about faced it and said no. We're going to stay put and he was. I'm just. I'm just tired of you guys. Doing nothing for me right. Never drafted an offensive player in the first round of the nfl draft during his time there except who jordan love his replacement. So thank you for nothing green bay. You had a next generation quarterback over a lengthy period of time and you were able to get to one super bowl and this is terrible miscarriage of justice by green bay packers organization through that time. Hope he gets to a place where he gets another chance to win a championship. Now san francisco seemingly is out of the conversation. Now we're we're going to have to get into the san francisco talk. Because if they're pushing to get aaron rodgers after they've made this trade they weren't they weren't settled on trae lance. Then it was. They didn't know what the hell they were doing. Like if they can get yours and not have to draft a quarterback at three and take somebody like kyle pits and it's a what does that look like so we're going to get into the we're gonna get into all the pics we're going to get into the pick that i think were were terrible mistakes. There was about five teams. That we're gonna we're gonna take the the tick the tiscali to here in a little bit but the aaron rodgers story. I don't care how big the draft was. Yesterday it dominated everything marsh rarely on his radio. Show like a minutes before the draft started came out and said denver. Now has a deal as close as you can have to being done for aaron rodgers to denver and then all of a sudden at the ninth pick the broncos patrick certaines the second and then we're trying to wrap their minds around what that could mean or what that could be and maybe they maybe they're going to send him along to green bay as a flip flop when i go. Why did green bay take another corner at the end of the round. They needed a wide receiver. They needed a guy that was in the middle. Elijah more for me was was the guy that you have to go with their and they once again take a corner. People say well they needed to corner. Did they had three picks in the nfc championship game last year. I don't think corner was the problem so again. The packers do nothing to help aaron rodgers. And if they don't choose to do anything and forcibly say hey you play out your contract here. I don't know what happens. The word is that aaron says. Hey i'm either out of here or i'm done playing jeopardy host. I guess next seems like it may have some kind of game show. I remember chris. Simms came on here yesterday and said he's heard all the scuttle but he knows errands. Unhappy expects them to play this year. But that's it. This will be his last year in green bay. We'll see we'll see what kind of standoff results from this because one is coming. He is pissed. He's a pick last night. Didn't help no. I mean just another just another example of their feud hair rights. Why do they keep doing it. I have no idea. I've never seen a guy that's been more important to an organization been given the middle finger by the organization just constantly after year after year. And it's now it's it's almost become like a joke now. That green bay is not gonna do anything to help. Aaron rodgers here. They're they're not going to and it's funny now. It's not funny. Aaron rodgers clearly does not want to be apart of that conversation anymore but the first round takes place nothing new right and picks one and two trevor lawrence to the. Jags zipped zack wilson to the jets. We talked to. Chris simms yesterday and we had rich on the show to talk about his time there in being the jets fan. I just i i simply said you know. Unfortunately last night was that wilson's highlight with the new york jets. That was career. See three years with a new head coach and another back. Whoever that is going to be. It's not his fault. It's not his fault you know he's going to the jets. It's the jets fault right but maybe we'll figure it out this. Maybe i ought to allow that. I will allow that to happen. The play book of mormon there. We go News city news. And how did we didn't think about that when we were all about saks avenue and all this but the new york post new york daily news. The new york post back paid nailed. It zacks news. Zack city i am so disappointed in myself. I'm better than that i should. I mean i i want. I'd love to see what the what the new york post in a in a in the had when darnell was was secured and when sanchez was secured. You know it's it's the same thing there's a reason why baz teams are always drafted at the top of the draft going through this process. The new york jets are a bad organization from top to bottom systemically. So therefore until i see some sort of other evidentiary proof. This is the road. I'm walking with them. I'm like all right. I'll see in three years when you get a new coach and A new quarterback again. That's what they do. That's what the that's what the jets are known for. That's what the jets do. They don't win games and go to playoffs. They get new coaches and new quarterbacks then the biggest question mark of the whole night. What were the san francisco forty niners. Our whole show was dedicated to this pretty much yesterday going to do what are they gonna do. What are they gonna intrigue since. They made the move. And then when the pick was read trae lance quarterback north dakota state. I was kind of like. Yeah that wasn't there wasn't too much and that that's the that's the way it was gonna go this this matt jones thing. I don't know what that was even about people and it's not his fault and then ending then he's sitting there in the green room. Yeah you know and people are talking about him sliding back. Hey when the first mock drafts came out he was like mocked at twenty eight to the saints right so fifteen to the patriots is a huge step up and before the season started. He wasn't even in the conversation of being drafted like maybe fourth round fifth round or something like that. So this is a coup and he's going to one of the greatest franchises in the history of the nfl. The new england patriots now. The question is did new. England want justin fields. Because that was the other biggest move. I didn't know what was going to do. Where they're gonna shop out of there. They they went with. Kyle pits safe. Smart pick seems like they you know by all reports didn't get good enough offer to move down so they take the guy that i mean. I think it's smart. I think he's going to be impactful. Point look good in. That suit did he. He might. It might have been the best rest. That's a handsome man. Tell you right now. Do bomb a quarterback which i was works out and And i saw that guy walk out of the field. I'd be like yeah. I'm throwing him. Yeah he's score ten touchdowns this year. It's gonna have a thousand yards and eighty catches. Just lock it in. That's going to be my guy to throw him. That's what that's what a quarterback sounds like when he steps on the football field may see somebody. He likes thrown out. I like that guy to throw to him. It's simple matt ryan gonna love times. We make it more difficult as humans. Ns quarterbacks but it's really simple up on the field. You see somebody like you go. Hey i'm gonna throw to that guy a lot and eleven walks by go with him a lot too and then the running backs in about what about me. He's like well. You're not gonna get the ball much just that out there right now. Calvin ridley comes running by real fast. And i'm gonna throw tim to a lot a lot. We have to score fifty points by the way again so all right. We're going to get into the meat of the draft. And some of the the the god awful picks right Bengals own. they bungalow it once again. The dolphins come on guys eagles. What are you doing how we how we. How do you have a job. And the steelers in the jags. Okay we're gonna talk about those more. The biggest move of the night right. The chicago bears didn't get right with mitchell trubisky a few years ago and they make another big move right they move up on all the way to number eleven with the new york giants. The giants of the twentieth overall the brow. The bears fifth round pick and the bears. Twenty twenty two first and fourth round picks that this is a this is a hall because the giants big trade and settlement and i get. The bears needed a quarterback. And i think justin feels is a guy that you go do it. That's a lot. that's a lot. But if he pans out and he develops and he's he's the quarterback that they should shouldn't shawn watson what three years ago four years ago then it's well worth it. Well worth it. He was my number two quarterback so surprised that he fell all the way to eleven. I'm a bit surprised as well. That carolina didn't after what i thought was a bit of a reach for jc horn. Great cornerback out of south carolina. But at you probably could have gotten a little bit later that they weren't taking calls from the bears. The bears had to look at like we have. They had to have been really thinking that the denver broncos could actually take him at nine. So i was. I was really surprised. They didn't move to eight but after it all went down and happened the way it did them. Moving into eleven and the giants had nothing else to do there. They wanted to take devante smith at eleven. And when that was That was evaporated with the philadelphia. Eagles trade with the dallas cowboys to move ahead to take him the giants. Were like we can move back. We can get our guy that we want in a wide receiver and they got a good one. And tony from florida and boy put together a ton ton of draft capital so All at all. It was an entertaining draft. I don't like how long it takes those guys that do the live broadcast all forms. Rich team everything like that. The amount of talking. I did it for an hour and a half kicks. And i was like like like if you were watching my youtube stream last night. You had to have been going at least tired yawning. That's always a good one. You know it was not a good broadcasting. Look for me. Right i was. I was more invested with what this show is going to be. Yeah you know Today's guests right at At twelve twenty eastern.

Max the epic speed is our fastest epic and the better players epic max. Ls capitalizes on the tour. Preferred combination of low spin plus high stability check out the epoch family. A drivers at callaway dot com slash epic. I what makes my rounds. Usually driving the ball in the fairway and the callaway epic does it. It's it's accurate. I know where it's gonna go. That's the biggest thing. I know where it's going to go. Therefore i know what i'm gonna do next and when you're playing golf you need all you need to do that when we come back. Thomas dmitrov from the former atlanta falcons. Gm can tell us all about what last night was like. We'll be right back on the rich eisen. Show do you own or rent your home. Sure you do. And i bet it can be hard work. You know what's easy. Bundling policies with geico gyco makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geiko dot com the oscar winning actress who played mona lisa. Vito herself orissa khomeini phoning into the rich eisen show. Are you there mariscal. Good pay if so you just dropped into the middle of the biggest story of the year of what has been like for you marisa of so so basically your phone blows up saying you have no that. Guess what bill. Though a check just dropped. Mona lisa veto a press conference. Yeah i kinda had to catch up on what was going on. And the whole falls gaped or placate. The name is a great name of this opening night. Texted about it. We thought it was. We thought it was pretty funny. Oh kick out of it joe. Passion texted you office. Well yeah. I texted him. He's actually me. We requisite emojis. What joe patchy emojis. Is that the kids the blowing. The kith biggest breaking news of this whole thing is so marissa. seeing bill bella check play. Physics professor can you. Can you guess Critique his performance as a physics professor was believable. In your estimation thought it would be pretty Pretty darned believe life out here. I thought he underrated himself didn't you. I thought he went above and beyond. I've never heard of football coach dropping physics knowledge like that. He would kick my ass in a physics fest right now. I could tell you that he could maybe could have done with the accent though like if there's activity in the ball relative to the rubbing process yes he was talking about the funding right exactly so this final question mariscal knowing this character mona lisa veto as well as you do clearly won an oscar for this performance. You know this character inside out. Do you think mona lisa veto could acquit tom. Brady and bill belichick. Get out of this east project pressure on mona lisa. I think you want you who who does eleven but Pity i don't know ultimately you know she's a new yorker so to the jets fan so sleepiq with leave depends how many cases are in the queue but he was definitely dead on balls accurate as as he would say as he would back. Welcome back to the rich. Eisen show on ryan leaf filling in for rich. Tj jason and chris alongside me. You're talking all things. Nfl draft first round in our next guest was the former falcons general manager for years and put together one of the best rosters. You can imagine but Thomas dmitrov joins us now to talk about what went on last night. Welcome thomas. How're you doing buddy ryan what's up man. I'm doing good i. It was fascinating evening a lot of mystery. That necessarily isn't always the case. We didn't really know what was going to happen at three and four night. That's exactly right. I mean i was. It was one of the more intriguing. You know top five you know every year. It's like that as you know. I've been in parts of the draft when you're backing twenties and above. It's it feels a little boring When you're up in the early parts of the draft of course there's a lot going on. There's a lot of trade information going on a lot of discussion. So i was. This is the first time ryan in basically thirty years that i haven't been draft room and interesting enough. I texted arthur. And i was about ready to Tell arthur blank like thanks for. Put me in that spot. I'd say that facetiously in jokingly of course because we have a really good relationship but there was a lot going on there but from afar is what i'm saying stepping back and watching it as you know you probably have for a while. It was very different and intriguing for a lot of different ways. I it's definitely different when you're not when you're not like intimately involved in the palpable in the room isn't you just it. Is you really realize. It is a made for tv events now and it the drama and the build up and the drama. That happened about two hours. Before the draft and aaron rodgers the reigning. Mvp name is is thrown out all over the place there. Tell me something is the fact that he didn't move before the draft happened. And i know we're not done with the drop of the first round is a huge part of this is is is he does he have to be with another team before the draft is over or he's expected to be a green bay packer next year. I think you know. I know brian pretty well. And and you know they're they're they're adamant and and You know they are keeping him there. He is that organization. You and i know. I mean you know aaron rodgers what he is for that organization it is it is big it is. It is huge in so many ways. It was so good for coaching floor when he came in and i knew him from being here in atlanta good football coach. Of course it's a great spot to be stepping in as a as a young gm and a and a young head coach to having a quarterback like that to imperative that they get things right there. As you know there's money involved here there's a lot to it. I'm sure I think there's more talk about that though. Some of these big time players don't like in the very end that they're anchored into these organizations as much as they love them you know. Look we say what. Tom brady dead. That's unbelievable that he would ever have left. I thought he was going to the west coast but of course he stayed on the east side of the world and ended up. You know winning winning an art division least What used to be my division here. So you know. I think he ends up staying there. They just have to work through this big contract. Hopefully it's not too dusty right now to make it uncomfortable. We're talking with thomas. Dmitrov former falcons general manager two-time nfl executive of the year is it managed. I mean we haven't heard aaron rodgers say anything essentially this is all backchannel stuff. We hear from from nfl insiders but he is going to the kentucky derby this weekend and there's going to be a microphone that's thrown in front of his face is been so good with how he's handled the media through everything is at but could he make this thing even more problematic with just a few words out of his mouth. That that complicate the situation more yeah. I'm sure he could orion like even i know. Obviously he's a very intelligent guy and very articulate and he could choose his words however he is it and it could but the reality is it's out there now i keep coming back to the idea and i'm dealing with it from a different level now obviously with all the rumors about julio jones which is probably a segue into another prime. You know First ballot hall of fame. And i say that respectfully to the process and you know the talk about him moving from from this team as you know having on my heels. When i first heard it ryan we we. We sunk a lot of money into him. You know and matt ryan of course they were two people that we were. We were planning on signing for the rest of their nfl careers. And now it's one of the reasons that you know that would lead to a cap situation that becomes tight in an organization like atlanta when you invest that much money and people but you know here is julio right now in all this information out there. He has not spoken about it. Once those players start speaking about it. It does become more complicated. If you're a gentleman put on your general manager again And talk about those two situations. You are managing the team. You have to be a cap allah gist of course and in this year the cap has gone down. Where normally you have to be expecting the captain go up because of the tv revenue urine. A situation with with julio jones and And you have to figure out a way to pay your players in this team to make it the best possible team you can. Same with the green bay packers. It's a giant cap. It with with with aaron rodgers. Have you looked to trade him in and everything that how as a general manager do you smooth over these situations and have those players on your team moving forward in a smooth smooth transition. Well i mean first of all yet to step back as a general manager and really sit down with your financial people people and your your cap person and you really need to you. Know get up on the board and get really creative with how you're gonna put you know. Put it all together. This is an anomalous year obviously coming off and covert and and the the decrease in in what was expected to be a considerably higher salary cap that said we were never in our particular situation there in atlanta we were. We were very aware what was about to come and most teams were. So i i. I'm every team was so it wasn't like it was A mystery so in a situation like that my personal feeling has always been an. I believe until our player so pay your pillar players Pay your pillar. that's liberation. I guess but so you paid them. You know they're going to be high. And when you are ryan paying market value for your top notch players on your team and and you're in a situation where you no longer have a rookie quarterback and you have again one of the best receivers to have played this position making twenty two million dollars a year long with matt ryan making thirty million dollars a year along with the handful of other guys who are making legitimate money. You know alex mack was part of that group. He he left recently. That's a lot of money. You have to decide as a as general manager. Do you want to move. Some of these players be creative Move some of you know the bottom ten that you have that you're paying you have to really look at that and see where you're going to come up with the money because you're more than likely not moving on from of course of matt ryan and julio jones who have a ton of dead money attached to them again that's how we set it up. We were not planning on moving them. It becomes very complicated when you have dead money attached. Yeah your relationship with ryan cons up in up in green bay so Crystal ball at for me is is aaron. rodgers the quarterback under center for the packers. I can't imagine he wouldn't be. I can't imagine they don't look deep into that and figure it out again. You know this you've been around you know. The agents are very important as the management the ownership group. That's a different ownership group. There it all has to be mapped out at all has to be you know. Strategic leap bought out and well thought out to get the deal done and you have to continue to show love and you know on both sides. I think it's gotta be mutual. It's gotta be win win ryan. Yup his agent is dave done from athletes. I my my old agent. So he'll do a great job there in those in those conversations for sure all right so i love that we have. We have you on the show today. Because i've really gotten involved this year on on. Nfl radio and doing this show talking about the nfl draft. And what goes through the mind of general manager. because i've i've developed this philosophy around what the nfl has become. And i just really think that in free agency. We saw a little bit more of this year and in the draft. I'd like to see more of it. You really go up and draft guys. High that are passers pass protectors and pass rushers and so when i see an opportunity in cincinnati Were the bengals. Have a franchise quarterback who was almost wrecked torn apart a year ago because the liability and the offensive line. And you have a chance to get maybe a once in a decade offensive linemen and panini sewell. You still go. And get the ferrari of jomar chase where i really think. Wide receivers In there are some that changed the game yours in particular who will jones but the right now. They are more of a dime a dozen. And what did you think about that. Pick for the for the bengals to decide to go with the flashy wide receiver. And not the you know. I guess the the mini van that can protect you in any way shape or form. But it's a great conversation ryan. i mean. look this. This is a situation that i thought good and hard as i was watching it as well Leading into the draft thinking you know You know here's tobin. He's basically the general manager there. He's tried and true. Inside out knows his football players his dad was if you remember i mean his dad being the tobin who laid into mel kiper back in the infamous interaction during the draft You know look these guys know how to put together a team and they know the personnel in the very end your gm slash personnel Vp needs to sit down with the coach and the owner in this situation and discuss the the importance of having the ability to protect. And if you felt if you feel as an organization as gm and team builder that you have the makings to continue to build Around that offensive line to protect your guy great but that is the situation where they need to continue to build their. So i agree with you to to get a receiver. That's where my head was going in. There are a lot of good receivers out there. You don't necessarily always need to get him in the top five or ten. I love the idea of having penny soule there. They must have had a reason. And maybe in the end. The linking of you know quarterback with his former receiver happened a couple of times right. That seems to be a little bit of a trend as well. I don't want to overplay that. The importance of protecting matt ryan in the past and i thought about that over the years. I've learned some lessons many lessons along the way of course but her offensive line and protecting that matt was the best when he had the best offensive line around him. And we were dialed in. And you know. I hope borough continues to thrive. They're they're gonna make the need to make sure that they have people around. Maybe they'll continue to go out and free agency but that was legit pick that they decided to move. That's a big time organization move going with receiver over tackle. Maybe they take seven jenkins as the first pick as as their first pick in the second round will see. They need offensive line help or they're going to need. Our brand is going to be throwing to march jason. No one wants to see that incident. So let's go one two more two more things for you The move the bears made right. They they take a sizable jump and give up quite a bit to maybe right or wrong. They had a few years ago and not When they went with mitchell trubisky at to move up and take justin fields out of ohio. State keep keeping locally in the big ten area to be the next quarterback for the chicago bears. I love it. It was one of my favorite moves you know again. You have ryan pace and You know Matt nagy to really good football people who you know. It's it's a complicated year for them. Meaning anytime you have hot. You know in steam on your seats so to speak and believe me. I've been through a lot of that and thirteen years sometimes. Those are the best times when you when you're aggressive and you shoot for it. They weren't on their hands at all. Man they they they saw and they went after it commended highly. I actually talked to him. Probably three quarters of the way through that first round after you can tell were euphoric and their move. Because they know they needed someone to come in there. They've been outspoken. About the the the the idea that all gms going to hang with them and they're gonna grow match with me Nagy shared with me was like he was in kansas city. When when they were working on. You know Patrick and how they were gonna continue to school him over that you know and seventeen and i think i think he believes that he can continue to do that was fields and doesn't have to force them into that spot. I think it was a big time. Move aggressive move a ballsy move and i again full on thumbs up on it a better work you know and unfortunately unfortunately it's kind of a almost feels like anthony. Lynn situation. Right you go and draft your franchise quarterback unfortunately if they don't have the season that they need You know it could be a bit of a lame duck year in the next guy. Could have the franchise quarterback. That's that's what sucks about it. But i love the fact that they went and did it with like they just said i don't care this is what's best for the team and what could be the best for us and if we're not here year from now we did our best and And we we had everything on the table. So i like that as well Before you get out of here are we're talking to thomas. Dmitrov former falcons general manager to time. Nfl executive the year matt ryan arthur smith. I loved when arthur smith was hired as the new head coach I thought it was a a wonderful opportunity for matt ryan to kind of rejuvenate his career. Late late in in part of it Gonna fit so well together. And i think arthur felt that way too because there really wasn't much talk about quarterback anymore When we were getting closer and closer to the draft but do they go here in the second or third round in that second. Tier quarterback The kyle trask. Kellerman davis mills and and put them in a position in atlanta to be the heir apparent to matt ryan. When it's all done we'll let we. We went through a we all love. You know Match shop match up there for a number of years. Obviously a an age veteran. Who did some really good things for us. But we were always looking in the neck you know at least if if i were still be there. We were looking over the last year and a half. Who's gonna be their parent that deuce and will be an eventual. You know air or will or an air or will it be someone that we're just using the number two while matt continues to you know hopefully take us to a super bowl. I personally believe on that. By the way and i'm sure there are going to be a lot of questions about it around this city because there are a lot of people that you know. They've watched matt mature over the years and he bald. We got the sixteen where we're just short coming up. You know and historic laws mad at a helluva season. Of course here we are right now in atlanta and people are going to be asking what was on the table there at that fourth pick and was it truly contingent on what the forty niners did. And you know you have to think about that as a general manager. you're looking at potentially a quarterback. You're looking at tight end. It has to be the right quarterback that would come into the system here in atlanta pair with matt. Meaning kinda like like aaron rodgers. Did you know you have two or three years or whatever it is. That's not always easy to do but to me there wasn't a better place in the country to have someone with matt who by the way i do still believe one hundred percent can win a super bowl ryan. You get the right play calling around him the right system around him get him moving. Get the ball out boot. You know play action. Don't let them hold onto the ball. And i really believe that he can move it around what they have on that team So my point on that is this. There's a lot on this organization right now and you know match match like competitive guy one of the most competitive people i've been around and he's going to show everyone that he has a chance still to play two three or four more years and win a super bowl. I'd love to see it. i really really would. What what teams do you think. Give me a couple of teams. You thought that had the best draft in the first round last night who in in a sense one. The first round gives us a couple of teams that you thought did a heck of a job. Well look i think. Joe douglas jets and and and Sala robert solid. They did a hell of a job. Again picking zack wilson. You know to be the guy that start sharing that organization and then you know that like i said that kind of a draft and then and you trade aggressively and i'm all about aggressive trading in this league man. It's it has changed. A lot of people used to sit back and you have a lot different group of general managers. I feel who know the urgency of not for long them moving up to fourteen to get allies. Avera tucker to me was a really good really good. Pick for them to to come away a draft a quarterback in protector. It's it's somewhat similar many years back you know. Wait when pick matt ryan. We moved up to get sam. Baker wasn't rich. Yes maybe we should have had them in the early parts of the second round should. Should you have waited for various tucker maybe could of but that you went for you knew what your vision was with a new head coach and a sound general manager of very sound general manager a good football team builder. You're gonna continue to build that team. I'll be interested to see what the jets continued to do here Down the stretch on in this whole draft. Yeah i agree. I i have a problem with the jet simply because they're the jets and I'm wondering if we're gonna be seeing the same thing for years from now new head coach new quarterback but Hope i'm proven wrong. They were very aggressive. Joe douglas putting his stamp on that team I want to thank you for taking the time. Thomas to meet your off former falcons general manager time. Nfl executive your thanks for joining us. Thomas talk you soon thanks ryan. Yeah it's it's. It's interesting to hear the general managers kind of point of view. I i was glad we had him on. So i could ask him that question. Because i have the theory around what you do and he especially with cincinnati at five. Because i wanted to get into this. And and we'll we're gonna we're gonna talk about it before the hours up here. On what teams we think had every opportunity to do the right thing and didn't and we'll get to that when we come back costs. Eight four four two zero four rich. You're listening to the rich eisen. Show i'm ryan leaf. We'll be right back. This is the last day usurp brett farve will ever not be a hall of famer from sunup to sundown. I haven't thought about that why you're on the perspective guy. What are your thoughts about the enshrinement here for the pro football. Sometimes because it's been as we were talking Prior to coming on it's been a busy year or last eight eight months. I guess and you almost kinda get inundated with all the stuff rather than just kind of like so. This is really just an incredible honor. Have you thought about who is going to present you next summer. Yeah mongol tell you no. Let me sit there for a few seconds. That brand i mean thought throwing only prior to coming on here drama. Yeah i did. Yeah so you drama rich so you know it is right now. Does that person know voters sort of sort of sort of is it. I told you when you were starting out and green bag that you'd be a pro football famer with two grandchildren on the day that you're going would you. No i wouldn't believe you know i it would be Really it's just hard you know. Yeah physically but to be good or good enough for that long craig. So everything. I ever dreamed of hope would happen. Has has come true. And then you do realize that after tomorrow night when you're enshrined about is your last chance to announce a comeback. Well you know. I was gonna ask you like say sunday if i said you know. I think i'm gonna play another. You can't do that you can will you. Will you do that on. Nfl game day morning. Will you make that announcement on. Nfl feel sunday morning. Wake up you know. It's super sunday. You might feel that. Do you miss it at all though one day. Where you're just out of a really don't I missed the counter. The non-football stuff you funny events and stuff right but not if you see a big win. Yeah that's that's good but the other team yes. I don't miss being the other team. And it's just a matter of time before the bad hits for i don't miss welcome back to the rich eisen. Show i'm ryan leaf. Great conversation there. With thomas dmitrov sparked a lot of dialogue. I'm here with tj jason. And chris chris. We have a bunch of collars discuss this a little bit about what went down last night. Let's hit the phones right now. Like i said a four four four rich. You wanna talk about your team. What did you like it. did you not like it. What's it the phones right now. Let's go to stan in kentucky. Wants to talk. Packers with you ryan stan. What's up. hey thanks ryan good to see you again on the show. Hey i'm just distraught. Man being a one of the four hundred thousand owners in such. I just can't believe it's came to this. I called in earlier in the year when we thought this could have been possible. That is it broke forever or is there a hope. That's all i'm asking really wanted to know 'cause you know. They haven't really drafted well for him or for him and all and they lied. Yeah made their bed game. Is there any way to get him back in. Make this thing right. That's my questions are. Thanks for the call. Stan really appreciate it you know. They continue to kind of. Just throw the middle finger up to aaron rodgers right. I mean they go and draft. Eric stokes at georgia cornerback That does nothing for nothing for what aaron rodgers needs to compete when he meets up with. Tom brady Or you know now. Trae lance in the san francisco forty niners in the nfc championship last two years. That he needs something different and they just haven't done it so it stand if you were in errands. Shoes have some empathy around this. If you were in his shoes how how would you react to what the packers have done over the last decade to help him get back to a super bowl and win a championship. Because i i would i would. There would be some resentment there for me definitely. I know i'm talking to him like he is. God right the voice of the rich eisen voice. That's the question like you know if if you're a packers fan or one of the four hundred thousand owners put yourself in his shoes. Have some empathy. How you fix this. I don't know how you fix this. I really don't. Thomas said thomas to be who we had on just a little bit ago talking about how you men these fences. I don't know if you can if the reports are true. And they've come out of adam schefters camped and he says he he no longer wants to be in green bay and is not going to go back under any circumstance that to me tells me that this is an unfixable situation. And if that's the case we may have seen the last snap taken by aaron rodgers. nfl quarterback. Because i do know for a fact he he can walk away from the game right now and feel fulfilled and rich and very rich. Yes yes very much jeopardy. Well i mean go for making thirty five million dollars a year to make five million dollars a year. I guess it's you know it's all relative poor after that. Yeah you're gonna you're gonna be like can't simply afford this malibu beach house. We'll see but it'd be a lot cooler. He d every year. I get older. They stay the same age. Just all right all right all right what else we got bra. Let's talk patriots. Let's go to my home adopted state in maine. Jeff in maine. Likes the mac jones pig. Jeff explain yourself. I couldn't sleep last night. I was so excited. It was the super bowl. I mack jones. Was there at fifteen. You kidding me. And bill we trust My wife yelled at me and said you're forty six years old grow up and screaming and yelling. We ask brockman if you're at rapid raise right now. What would you order. Oh my gosh. Do i would probably fourteen cheeseburgers and five fries. I mean look. Why are you excited about mack jones. I get it. And i i reserve the right to talk myself into this week. Six when we're two and four and matt kass start. I think for me jeff it it didn't excite me. It wasn't sexy. It might be the smart pick and he might be good and he might be fine and we might win a super bowl of him at some point. But it just doesn't wow me. I'm not excited today like you are. I just think accuracy and a good defense gets you seventeen games now. So ten twelve wins. You're a playoff team. I mean as pets fan. I've been for twenty years and watching football into february so to have someone that you knows going to be accurate. Yeah maybe feeling isn't very high. But he was under saving and bell chicken saving their buddies. So just feel like there's hope. Twenty twenty one has hope. That's all i'm saying i get it so i guess for you. The ceiling on this mac jones pick is what the early brady years like the. Oh one two oh. Six seasons before randy moss came in and fifty touchdowns and he became an absolute juggernaut. Greatest of all time. Short trent dilfer type maybe managed the game Nothing trent dilfer. But i just to have that in and move forward. It's just that's where i'm at. Thanks guys picking my call. Thanks good thanks. Jeff appreciate the call. I'm with jeff brock. You're into this pick. I i am so into this. This this was my comp. This matt jones was was overly successful. Tom brady coming out of college. So you're getting the guy you've had for the last twenty years but with a better reputation coming out of college. I feel i feel like he's gonna fit into in into josh mcdaniels offense like a glove they have to now. No one thought. Tom brady could do any of what he did. He was a sixth round. Pick a six pick. Doesn't he doesn't even get on the field if drew bledsoe doesn't crack his sternum right in that game. We don't know who thom now. I feel like what was inside. Him was ultimately going to come out in some way shape or form because it just you can't. You can't hide that everything's broke the right way for tom. Brady s he gets drafted by the cleveland browns instead of spurgeon win not in the league. We don't know who tom brady. S so going to this organization. If i'm at jones and if there was a fleeting moment any point last night and you felt like you were sliding if you really felt like you were supposed to be the third pick in the draft then then there may be some delusions of grandeur. You have going on there but you falling and if you wanna call it falling to the fifteen pick in the draft to the new england patriots. Then that's on you. This is a great thing jeff. I'm with you here. I'm going to get rock shady out here on the golf course and make him believe. Believe in the mac train here we go here. We go all right. Well one last point this. I think it's just like you're married for twenty years and then you get a divorce. You don't remarry the like the same type of person who looks the same in the same personality right. And i think that's just what mack jones is. You go for the younger sexier flashier you upgrade so to speak and i just think going for trail ants going for justin fields would have been totally different. It would have been totally new and totally exciting and as a fan. That's what i was looking for. Well sometimes you just need. You just need that safety. You want to feel comforted. You want to you like this. You like this girl and you want us to have that reciprocated. You know i. I get it i get. It's just i. I want i want our. We drafted it. And that's what he's totally fine. Then you've never been you've never been part of an organization drafted to go through all of this castle and you've never had to draft anything flashy you. Just you went about your business. So i i feel like it was the right move. I feel like if i'm bill belichick and i'm sitting there and i'm watching this play out and you're going. I'm not gonna have to do anything. I'm gonna be able to sit right here at fifteen and get the quarterback. Possibly of my future than yeah. I'm a. I'm a happy camper rappaport had had a report this morning. That bill is kind of excited about grooming and new young quarterback and this might re-inspire him a little bit. Because i'm sure when you have tom brady. You take that for granted after a certain point in twenty years and six ships you can rest on your laurels a little bit and now you can go back to work with this. I like there's this there's a similarity there cam. Newton similar to drew bledsoe in terms of being wily veteran. And you've got a guy coming in so I think it's a great opportunity. Look forward to. We'll get to more of your calls after we come back from break. Steve weiss will join us as well. You've been listening to the rich eisen. Show i'm ryan leaf and we'll be right back. I think. I think that. I think it's a good move. I did like i liked. What the dallas cowboys did tj me to you know i. I think that. I like mike. Parsons there was a lot of knocks on him. For what some off the field stuff. And and the opt out i mean. What's interesting. Is that if you remember correctly. Jerry jones making the point that like you know we don't we didn't necessarily like the guys that opted out last year. Then they go and drop the guy that that did. You can't really hold that against anyone. I'm sorry no you can't. We were in a worldwide pandemic folks so a lot of people weren't sure you don't know what's going to happen and what's interesting and all this is i do think it's it's going to set up a bit of a precedent. I really do. I think that we're gonna see more players you know if they're in a position of power in terms of like you know let's say let's say trevor lawrence after winning the national championship. Is the number one overall pick and he can't be drafted for two years. I i believe there's going to be some players now. Moving forward that because the word opt out hadn't existed. Yeah the word exists now in the vocabulary of these young players and they will say. Hey i i'm not going to take the chance of getting injured. Essentially what davis mills did Because of the injuries that he had at stanford he essentially opted out of next season to be a professional football player. And so i could see that happen more down the line because the word has been introduced to these players they can go sign with an agent. They can train and train and train and get ready for it. The only disappointment and we heard it from a lot of players. Were sean slater. Being one of them last night about how disappointing. It was not to play in that season. It was a shortened season in the big ten but still watching his teammates guys. He's worked really hard with over the years and not being able to play with them. That will be the ultimate the thing that that some guys back. But i would not be surprised at all if we see players here in the next five years after having a breakout year and being considered high draft pick if they're not eligible opting out of the next year and presenting themselves ready for the the nfl draft the next year. I really do believe that's going to be the case when we come back Like i said. We're gonna talk to steve walsh from. Nfl network talked to him about. What the atlanta falcons did what they're gonna do. We're gonna talk about Some of the mistakes. I thought were made in the first round. And we're gonna get to more of your calls at eight four four two zero four rich. You're listening the rich. Eisen show. I'm ryan leaf and we'll be right back.

Tonight's the draft lottery. One is that Christopher. The draft lottery is after the buds coming up after bucks magic tonight throw around five, thirty Pacific Eight, Thirty Jerome Bettis is calling into the show shortly You could see that's a quadruple header that's on the world wide. Leader in sports. later on tonight man at nine Eastern. How nervous a Laker fans going to be? Their of Their WHO's move? Why Don Boyer Executive Producers got in my ear and said WHO's more nervous clippers or Lakers. Lakers fan quick clippers. Fans are look I can speak as a clipper. Fan. Because that's as close to a jet Fan as you can get in the NBA. Trap door open at any possible time. Honestly. Clipper Fan Fan hey at least when you got Koa, he's doing better than I did when he was on the jets. Far Come into the jets. This is we finally got our guy. I know he's older the long in the tooth, but he's going to be great and then That didn't happen so. I don't think wise ever gotten mono. Comprised cotton mono either. Good I like it very, very good. Again, we're going to be streaming on peacock starting on Monday for those who are unaware where you've been we've been talking about it every single day and this is huge for us on our show. Again, it's It's a major venture for NBC NBC sports. So clearly there being as smart as they are executives at NBC sports they are making sure that if such an important important ventures, peacock and NBC sports on Peacock, which is a standalone channel. They said we have to put. At least some of this in the hands of Mike del Tufo and they they nailed it they're putting this in your hands Mike you wear that when you between the hours of twelve and three eastern on NBC sports on Peacock, you have a very important role to play in making a very important venture for a large media company to work correct? Yes. Rich and you know what? Just so you know I've yet to open a twitter. Page it's Monday. I will be on social facebook twitter right down. Okay. Very good shut shutdown I'm ready. Do we we have a poll question today Chris. Not. Really. My Gosh should mike by the boat or not. Well, they're five guests. So we didn't really have a lot of time to talk about whole action. Okay. Hold on. Nervous one I liked I liked the nervous one Lakers clippers box, which fan base is much most nervous. If. That I mean we kind of did that yesterday in a way Oh we stood panicking because the Lakers in bucks both lost but now the clippers appear to be in big trouble and like Mannix pointed out, there are porzingis ejection away from being down to Oh. Okay. Do. You want to some of the names that mannix throughout their. Who would you take the first overall pick in the NBA draft Sure I I think a lot of casual fans don't even know who they are. These guys are. Like wise been remember got shut down his season got shut down after central rooms at Kentucky. We didn't even have march madness. Any Edwards. I mean with all due respect Sarah I don't think anyone's watching Georgia basketball, and then we'll know ballpoint in Australia. That's right. So I don't know about should the NFL draft lottery go Fort Oh yeah. Not a shot no way. You really I think that's coming back big time. Yes. Back. Yes. Five teams. For Non James non-playoff seems I think it's gotta come back resoundingly. Yes. Right at richeisenshow right now give us. What do you mean? It helps create the K. at create more chaos and it's more fun like fifteen got the number one pick it'd be great. Or like looking at last year standing likes the bears were eight and eight. You don't think the bears. Won The lottery suddenly and have the chance at the number one pick. Now, how different their franchise with look going into twenty twenty? They definitely. Wouldn't have traded for Nick foles and they. Would let trubisky walk but there's no getting Joe Berle. There's no reason why the NBA does this to prevent teams from tanking literally saying you know what we need to see what we have in our twelfth man on the roster. So start losing games over and over and over again, they need to do this to prevent that the NFL does not have that problem. There is no reason to introduce anything to do with lock. In the NFL. I am sorry it's fun. It is not fun. As a matter of fact. Would be fury. It'd be great for my team to be so dreadful and a diamond in the rough like Joe. Borough. Sitting there you've got to trade for that. You don't have the opportunity to get him because of you've you've earned it. That's the way the NFL has been done at doing it for seventy years. But no, let's put it all in a ping pong ball or some sort of you know hopper and let some team that just went six and ten after being fourteen in two for nineteen straight years because of an injury or something happened let that team get the the diamond the rough. No shot. No. Thank you. All right. He's a pro football famer is one of my favorites I've known him damn near. Twenty years. Now. And his new bus stops here. Foundation is the launching the second session of check in a virtual youth program designed for Middle School. Age Students, who as we all know? There's a lot of remote learning going on in this country right now because of the pandemic, our Buddy Jerome betta stops by on the rich Eisen show how you doing JV. Doing better for talking to you. How's your family everybody everybody's doing? Well, we say and and. Just keeping a heads underground. Okay. You just catching up on your rich Eisen shows during the pandemic. Oh my gosh. Could you imagine plane in this? Will be very scary I'm asthmatic. So this would be a very difficult decision for me to have to decide. Brian or not. So it would. This would be scary one but the football side of me I. THINK WE WANNA. Win Out because you WANNA play and that's what you love to do. But your health is is, is paramount's course scary? Well, it's not just that too. It's. It's what you might be bringing back into the house to your kids your. Spouse to anybody in your family that's of a certain age and and the I do not begrudge a single opt out not a single one out. No. Now because we don't know scenario situation, everyone's unique and their situation is unique and we can't assume while you just don't WanNa play Y'all WanNa play but it's not necessarily worth the risk you've got away at all now and and obviously for for for college we don't know kids and how it might affect. Anybody of despite being eighteen or twenty one or twenty two, and it just I just don't know how colleges doing it. I know your Alma maters gone online for the first two weeks. They made that announcement it does appear that Notre Dame football might still go. That's the scary part about big. You know the big big business and football and college football. You know you saw the the big Tandy's solve the PAC twelve did and then it created a pretty much a riff now. These schools that are are predominantly in the southern states saying, Hey, we want to continue on and and now you know it creates a a really uneven playing field because now you've got highschool recruits looking at this decision saying, maybe I need to rethink that look at a school here So possibly could play next year if this happens again. So this is a big problem that they've got to try to fix not not only dimension that the health Scenario for these kids that they're gonNA be out on the field is still very dangerous. Jerome Bettis pro football hall. Of famer here on the rich is John we've had a chance to talk since cower got in. I mean, what is your? What is your bus going to say to his with? My bus would it would say coachee you should. Just, a little bit more. A little bit more man. I mean why? Why do you think he's hall of Fame Worthy? You know. He. He got in along with Jimmy Johnson and we we you know we spoke to. Tom Flores yesterday and I think he's been waiting a long time I'm wondering if you could pound the table for anybody that might think that other coaches are worthier than Bill Cower enshrinement. Well, here's here's what you have to look and and I think a lot of times. You know people look at Hey, he's got one bill. He's got to super bowls and I, get it I understand that in Tom flurries I think he should have been in a long time ago. But when I look at a Bill Kollar, you look at the consistency of what his career was. He you know him coming in. Only, having been head coach for one team and the career that he put together. The consistency, the play offs I mean I don't I don't remember that may I think maybe had one losing season maybe to. His whole tenure and that is that's rare to say that. So He's been he was the motto of Consistency. You knew the Pittsburgh steelers when you played them, what you're going to get is be physical hard nose and you know we wind the majority of the Games that we played. So I if you look at his track record at, you know compared to other people it's GonNa it's GonNa line right up. With all those things yes, he wasn't able to win a championship, the Super Bowl that he that the the first one he went to and he lost in a couple of AFC championship games. But the key is you put yourself in that position time after time and so that just shows you how consisted he was as coach. I think maybe five or six AFC championship games and so to be that consisted for that period of time with totally different rosters you've gotta you gotta tip your hat to your own here on the rich Eisen, show What are we going to get out of big bend this year? Do you think? That's a great question, and hopefully hopefully we get you know seventy, five, eighty percent of what the player that that he has been because you always know that you know he's in the back of his hand. He's GonNa have a little a little nervousness about letting it go for one hundred percent right because whenever you have type of injury, that's always in the back of your head but. You know he has the ability. If he's eighty percent of of himself, this is going to be out of sight t because you already have a championship caliber defense that they prove that last year because the defense was only thing that kept the team eight nate just incredibly. But. Now you add. The receivers that that are in place that have have come out and play well, last you. Then you bring the running game with the still size offensive line lube older but still really good office of line I think you've got a playoff caliber team if ben seventy, five percent of himself. If you get back to close two hundred percent of themselves, I think you've got a championship caliber football team. So I think right now the onus is is how well is been going to be for the entire season? That Adele determine how good this team can really be I gotTa tell you man if he is seventy five percent in the the you know more focused team oriented Ben. Rothlisberger where he's not on the on the radio. And and he's More focused if you will on his teammates in a proper way, I'll be very honest here. And in that happens. Then I think you got a top five defense in Pittsburgh you know what I mean I you got Ta. TJ. Caliber defense. No doubt about I agree I mean TJ Watt could be a defensive player of the your candidate just like his bro. Bud Pre and On the back end you got Mak- Fitzpatrick and we all know the brains of the operation right there in the middle. From an outstanding institution of higher learning the University of. Michigan. In Devon Bush. Either youngster he's he's. I think he's all grown up personally. I think, I think that's you got yourself a serious defense in Pittsburgh you. Can you give that defense? You an defense turns people over and gets people off feel because they sack people and you give that you give that defense three touchdowns offensively you give them two touchdowns couple field goals you might have you might have a championship caliber team. That's what I'm saying I mean they can. They can play against anybody in the League and have success, and if they can get the running game going and Ben can can be timely I think I, think an another addition was Eric E. Brian in the middle of the field, an area where historically distillers have never. Been Very, very strong yet in in terms of the tied in putting pressure vertically and I think if if Brian can can bring any of that, it brings a different dimension that this team has is. Honestly. Never had and and that can be scary. Jerem Bettas here on the rich Eisen show few more minutes left with you. Sir, tell me about this virtual youth program designed for middle aged middle school age students. Obviously we're in a pandemic many many schools doing online learning again. Walk me through what this is and how people can get involved J. Let me just say how it started. It started it was crazy I got a call from someone in the organization and there was a young lady who's a teacher at training camp whose kids when everything went to virtual learning didn't have computers and so we said you know that that can't happen. We've got to do something. So we one day we raised about thirty five thousand dollars for sixty kids to get computers, and at that point we realized the way to second we there's a problem here. There's kids who aren't connected. They don't have the activity. So we came up with this program connecting kids and we went out and try to get with the community and we've raised money and we. Were able to to purchase over laptops for kids and so in south western Pennsylvania and that was amazing. So we you know that's been incredible for for everyone to anybody wants to help in that regard because now we're starting to go to Detroit and we wanna go all of the all of the country eventually and you know people can just go to the bus stops here, foundation dot org or donate to the text of bus at seven, one, seven, seven seven, and that's four the connecting kids part but then we say, Hey, we need to provide something because now kids are out of school and they miss some of this learning and so we came up with this program and basically. We're watching our second check in program as a second six-week virtual enrichment session, and it's totally free. It's for kids from age ten to fourteen. All they have to go to event bright DOT COM to register. It's totally free. You've got a tech innovation classes science video of film math, zoology, entrepreneurship, cybersecurity, marine biology. So many other things we've got DJ on they're going it's just Something that we saw was the issue. Now, this is for after school for kids and starting at four PM Eastern and and so we just wanted to do something to help during this pandemic, and we saw that there was a a small problem in terms of the technology not being affordable and the Internet access It wasn't accessible and that digital divide. was there. So we wanted to try to do something to step in and try to help with you know at. Underprivileged kids who didn't have that I don't have the same opportunities that other from four to five forty five PM speak as a as A. Parent of three small kids or three young kids an hour and forty five minutes of time having having Spending it and getting filling their brains with something that actually expands the mind rather than deadens it. Is a great idea and it's very welcome. It's on Mondays and Wednesdays Event Bright Dot Com. Go in search for your name. Jerome Bettis. And also the bus stops here foundation dot. Org is another way to find out stuff. Hey, man look before I let you go I'm I'm really hoping that Notre Dame plays football this year you know what? Well I'm hoping they play football this year and careful jerome you're walking into. into. Jerome Better. So I don't know. His birthday but off the top of my head, but I'm I'm assuming it definitely isn't August seventeenth twenty twenty he wasn't born yesterday was. Sixteen or whatever he knows when he calls into the show what what's This. Is Not his first Rodeo or go way back. So the reason why is do recall last year? When our Alma maters based off with one another. Correct. Remember. I. Do Recall. Okay. Do you do recall that when our monitor's faced off with one another? You and I made what we would call a friendly wager at Code I. Don't recall what I put on the line whatever it was. It was something that I was supremely confident wouldn't actually happened. Didn't okay Joe. Now, you do remember what you have to do though because you're your school law but if you were called I came on your show and I sang your fight song. As a response to that, you forget how quickly we forget. He did that did we let him off the hook? For that is this is ringing a bell. You start to get up there in age and I understand. Worker. Stand. In, Michigan. But you gotta understand now I stood up and I stood up. And you sang the fight. He did. A Michigan fights. Will okay the greatest fight song no Michigan Fight Song and something that I. Would never do and I did it for you as payment. Instead of. Instead of instead of wearing the hat because I didn't we thought we had the hat there. We didn't have ad there. Because we had it made up and my business manager. Forgot it. Oh. Yeah. You blamed your people? No. We have it. I can picture I would love to get a picture of it. How How will be the? PITCHER UP Because just in case anybody knows I. Picture. Guy Right? No chance. No idea. I did. Step up to the plate right and try to either and had said, what's your? What are the words that? Remember. After Michigan. It's supposed to say remember I should have gone to Michigan. Punish me a second time. That's what You know what? To say. We. Say. Our say that very very but forgetful and I did it a national television I don't understand. I. Don't understand why he's endeavor did go to Michigan. I mean your heart there. You're right there. You're clear a better opportunity for me at Notre Dame. On a second, just just recharge. This battery is it's because Bo was at bowl or is it Gary Moeller? Motion Back I. I. Let me just tell you for the record on the record. What happened. Okay. So Did he hang up instead of telling the story. Again your you're. Yeah. He went to see a running back named ricky powers. Right. who was number one went back in the in the country. In Ohio, and that sent shock waves, I was a fool back. I was number one four back in the country but it told me the where the where the importance was because the tailback at Michigan is more important than the fullback position. and. They were selling me on the fact that, hey, we'll play you like Leroy Hoard fullback tailback. But. I knew once they once they signed the number one tailback in the country I knew that my opportunities would be limited. In terms of running the football whereas in Notre Dame, Lou Holtz offense was based around the fullback boom at random footba all the screen passes went to the fullback and when they went to our receivers fullback stayed in the game and he ran the ball out of a one back set. So it was a perfect scenario for me to go to Notre Dame, because they actually utilize the full bag much more than they did at Michigan, but but I was. Wanted me to play linebacker. Okay. That was the first reason. Jeremy Back. You know what I hear Jerome. Instead of instead of a tale of woe, you know what? I hear I hear that there's a me in jerome and an I and. That's what I hear. You can't spell better without an I and you can't spell jerome without me. That's what I. Know. What. I want. I was only five. To be five. into been, you know just a six foot I. would be undersized At linebacker and I was right it it it it paid off for me. So I made the right call had I went to Michigan it would not have been the success. I believe that would have. Come to me at Notre Dame at least at least you still have great Michigan ties and Detroit routes to get the Ford Motor Company Fund involved in the Jerome Bettis bus ops here foundation launch of the Second Session of checking everyone.

So let's start with this right right now if not for the children know what so put the kids to bed when you start streaming hoops? and and if a aggressive foul language. You. Know is not your cup of tea, which is totally fair. Probably, not gonNA WANNA see this one. Okay. Sit this one out but. I'll be honest. It is my cup of Tea even though I'm not a Lotta work blue on this program, but you're so you play the father of a coach in this series correct map this out for what for everybody for early it's It's really a murderer's row of great comedic talent. All right. So Been Hoffman created it. Chris Miller Phil Lord of Producing Jay Johnson Producing in starring as the coach been his character named been I play Berry Hopkins His dad. Yes. I'm a former pro athlete who now steakhouse I make his life hell, I, am always give him a hard time I. don't respect him I bust as beings constantly I'm always judging him I don't wish ill though I he's my son I do love him. Okay. So that so it's not a hate-filled thing, but it's definitely a ball busting thing. Then you've got Natasha Zero you've got Ron funchess. Steve Berg. I mean eighty miles you've got some of the Great Comedians Cleo kings in it just great comic talent lined up and it is very funny of Jake Johnson is off the charts funny in it there's a lot of cussing. he plays a high. School. Basketball Coach in Kentucky who has he's mad at his wife he's mad at his dad is mad at his best friend. And he just can't seem to get it together, but he's trying to coach these kids these high school kids to be winners even though he's far from being a winner himself why this is great I mean you named a ton of Funny People Jake is as funny as they come. He's been on the show before first time ever met him. He wore This is back when my show is a podcast in the NFL, he wore in old Mike ditka barriers sweater buddy probably more Buddy Ryan bears eras, weather bears. White across. Its his when he was a kid still fit him God. Bless him. Classic Eighty Five. That's classic. Eighty own acid eighty-five circa I for you and your Phantom Circa a Marty Schottenheimer is just the beginning or just right before that's probably that's probably I. Know Marty was probably with the browns around I. Think he was. So with the Browns I think I think we got him around eighty seven or eighty eight somewhere. Right. Around there. Well, I mean last time we spoke to Patrick Mahomes on a rookie contract. Now he has all the American dollars that are in existence you know she. That was what a I mean. Your team's just taking care of business they signed Chris Jones to you're ready to roll a couple of weeks here telling me Being out the desert is as we've been out in the desert rich, it feels really good to be at the OAC's drinking the water. It feels really good Yeah and and they're they're also young. So motivated. So Optimistic, and they got they got the world by the tail I got to play golf with Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelsey out at the American Century Golf Tournament in Tahoe. Senator Grouping. Okay. Then they just were so fun and so lighthearted and so job, and again like I said, because they got the world by the tail right now. But I don't know it just feels like they just. There's this wonderful optimus around him. I sincerely hope that we are the team of the twenties I hope that we are the dynasty of the twenties you know that that would make me. I'm very happy man. Is only sixty two year old man right now I mean and Mahomes is basically like. I I don't know of any reads got a touch of the Wilfred Bramley rest his soul in him where he's he looks older than he really is you know what I mean like. He might have that sort of. Football's stressful being a head coach. In Nashville, he's very stressful very stressful just like sitting in rocking chair with with what was that around golf like to what we through that Oh, it was fantastic. He swings the club. So hard I swear every time he did it my back hurt because I was like, how are you? How are you getting that kind of tour? He would come off the tee with irons because. If he would something bad would have happened. He really at the club at speed had to be around one, hundred, fifty I'm not even kidding it was just nuts. His game was just like mine where we're like twelve handicaps wearing the same grouping for a reason. and. Actually. Is Not Special Golf you know we we were chunk in we rolling Putz Way Past. Way Short Bridal. I was winning through fifteen holes, I? I had them through fifteen, and then we came in the last sixteen, Seventeen and eighteen. And that's I should have known I was playing against Mahomes he always. Comes from behind he always comes from behind the Super Bowl at what he did you know whole post season the whole everything. Texans he turns you into Texans basically and he did he turned it on I buckled like a lawn chair I double double double last halls and he went on to win that day. So was was was Kelsey locked in two or is he just like because I? Think he was a little bit out of it. He came in third that day. A particular day. But he would. He hits a golf ball at the catches it on the ascending blow. It's so funny when we'd say heated as hard as you can man, they've just chunk it or put it in the woods or just out of control if we left him alone, he would pipe it at no jokes three, thirty, three, fifty, get Outta here. I I swear to you we're on a par five coming down towards the lake it's actually sixteen. any probably three sixty because there's a little a little downhill help but it still was monster drives. He also strikes missing I probably got into the swing oil right around the third tee box. Like doesn't matter what time of day you teed off like right around the third d-box he was already just getting in there. So you know he's Just, in general in life, he's one of the most jovial guys I. Love Him. He's great. Look. I know you've got to run an congrats on on the show. Any time I, get an opportunity to have you on the show and just Chit Chat we'll take advantage of that.

Rays have the Yankees number bro Phillies nothing on the Blue Jays speaking. Nicotera didn't respond to my taxes talk radio I thought it was going to be a long rant. It was literally. To. To curse words. Middle responded Texas. Texas you I'm clearly not the only one who dislikes Zach Britton with the heat of a thousand suns. Dowse. Answer by the way. My word. A. Getting trotted out there. NBC Sports on Peacock that is going to be the name of the standalone channel on Peacock on which you can begin streaming this show every single weekday at noon eastern time we will be here at nine bells every morning of from the rich Eisen. Show. Studio El Segundo California as soon as Dan Patrick is done, landed off to us then we ended off starting in September to Michael Smith and Tj, Jefferson's college roommate for a hot minute Michael Holly. and PF t will be sort of the. Book ends of that day every single day on peacock. Justin Turner making his way to the stadium in Seattle for the eighteen eight dodgers. You know what was the best record in the and the best record in the American? League is the Oakland A.'s at Seventeen at eight. Oh, really yeah. I just assumed it was you guys. Now the Yankees can't beat the race. Pretty much amazing. And the Yankees of the sixteen wins seven of them have come against the Boston Red Sox. s just in terms seven. Hundred against everybody else Turner's teaming the bag out of US Justin Turner teammate mookie. Betts. His Co. crushing it and keep his teammate Justin Turner calling can you put up lookie bets is number a luke void hit a home run for you or? Another he's been he's been tend on yard There we go. So he's got thirty hits. Yeah. He's got. A batting average of three zero six. Yeah. It's interesting. You know if you took the first digit from his batting average and multiplied it with the last digit, do you know what number you get? Yet eighteen. How many losses to the RED SOX have? Interesting. If you multiply if you double the number of home runs that he has how many lost the Red Sox F- if you take the first number. Of his hits. Right. Track Zombie. Is what number would you I mean it's just I, honestly helping. But my kids with math with home learning and just I'm just looking at these numbers not to go all sesame street on you but today's Today's show. Is brought to you by numbers that are in some way divisible or factors of the number of red sox losses. It's weird that they have because in many ways McKie's McKie's not there gonNA took the number of RBI subtracted from his number of runs. I mean. We could go on and on and on if you took his home runs and subtracted from his RBI, you'd have how many years it's been since he's won a world series. Extreme It's great. And you know. It I know. So many red sox fans may own household. House sleep with lot also, right. This is just a a delicious Saul Great. It's terrible. It's terrible I the extra opposite terrible. And the air. Stop showing up to the BALLPARK Let's go to Kyle and California you're here on the rich Eisen show what's up Kyle? On Kyle. Sorry for making you hang as long as you did we're proletarian. Happy to listen to you guys great interview with Liebus as you. Thank you Sir Jack. He's a great guy what's on your mind com? Anyway. I. Was wondering what you thought. Lavar is kind of You Know Laskar whole lawns. Of thing I wonder if he's going to be a little different this time around especially if it's by the Knicks. I don't I don't think. Lavar is. GonNa Change a thing quite frankly. And I think. The Way Lonzo's careers Kinda gone first couple of years not exactly. Well, I feel maybe he saw the impact that let me think. Do you think Lonzo's career has gone the way that it's gone if in Lavar had I've never met the man. But do you think if you asked him the way that Lonzo's career has gone? Do you think it's because of the way lavar handled his business or the way that the previous organization and the coaches and handled their business with Lonzo? What do you think he's answer would be. You know obviously a lot of external factors but I know for a fact that guys were geared up and ready to go for Lonzo remember Pat. PEP talks about that first game. When right after all the you know better than Michael Jordan Lonzo, it's going to be better than the bronze Blah. Blah. Blah. You know in MPA is here that they're gonna go after you especially as a top hair I know he definitely. You definitely put a target on his sons Jersey. There's no doubt about that Magic Johnson did to on top of all of it though Kyle I I don't think we've we've reported the last Alonzo I mean how old is Lonzo is even he's not even twenty five yet right now we looked up this morning he's twenty two I mean he's still he's still a pup right and we're gonNA see what happens in New Orleans and and we have not heard the last of Lonzo ball whatsoever but I think Lavar thank you for the call I think Lavar New York. City, the phrase toxic comes to mind. Just in terms of. The media wanting him to talk and him wanting a platform. To hear himself, talk will just be a total riptide that will keep turning earning, churning and churning Lavar could move to Chelsea, and then he could walk to the first take studio every day. and. Just be part of that part of the show he could. It'd be how and molly and Max and Steven A., they can do a four man or person show how. Well. He could walk to the studio. Is the. ESPN even troll the Knicks this morning. Did you see this did not up? What are you talk? Oh my goodness. They posted the joker painting photo knicks fans preparing for the NBA draft lottery I liked the Knicks logo in the in the eyeball right there. mom everyone. Everyone haven't followed the next man and they don't do a damn thing to make people change Jono. Their stance, not a damn thing is the owner is the joker the joker? Is the joker well I mean no I mean he's he's he's not good at owning now the next he's terrible. He's actually. The worst owner in sports. On the opposite end you've got Steve Bomber showing up for the clippers last I think it's the first game that he was it was I didn't seem engaged Nice show him in game one on. Their auto is again, he was behind glass and he was wearing masks. Owners bubble instead of an onerous boxes there like an owners of. Like penalty box type thing with the Nice. cushy chair and and. Sorts of food and you know I would imagine so. I would imagine it makes sense right? I. Mean They even have the announcers I don't know if you saw. Between. The same way Ernie separated from shack and one of the largest mankind was, hey, man whatever takes those guys. It works and it's to thank goodness. They've been great I mean they're always great but. Now now knee made correct yup correct. You know what else we need we need to make sure that Jerome Bettis wasn't trying to mess with us. We do recall him singing the Michigan Fight Song Right. Off The bat by wearing a hat that he was supposed to make up saying I should have gone to Michigan and he was supposed to wear it. On the field at Notre Dame with touchdown. Jesus. In the background that was the payment of the wager on the line between Michigan and Notre Dame last year in as you know, my institution of higher learning beat. I wouldn't call it yours again, you just you just might live in. New. Jersey and for some reason because your dad liked them, you like them and you. There and I've liked them since nineteen do we have singing the Michigan Fight Song? Let's hear this place hail to the victors. Lianne hail to the concrened heroes. To Michigan the leave. And Why he paid yet I still can't believe he did that paid the better off. That's it. I would never that's a site off he can't go cash. Ashton yeah. Can we have that at the ready? For the next time, he calls in Hail to the Victors Great Job Mike that's all you get. You know not even Gonna I'm not even GONNA go You know the voice on I'm here I wouldn't turn my chair for him but. A mocking to criticize the off key nature of it. He did it. He was close enough. It's actually even better that he remembered the words. Of course, he knows. He practiced no-one know what he doesn't need to practice. What do you remain of course? From Detroit he grew up, he probably heard it. Every damn week. You cannot grow up in Detroit and not. Know, about Michigan hammered rutgers all around you all the. Maybe, it was recruited. By Michigan. But that was thirty years ago I know you grow up there. He's trying to remember he's also played enough games. Hail to the victors. Valiant hail to the concrened heroes how To Michigan, the Lee happy Thursday and. Just. Play that on a loop. Hole. Is GonNa go go. Make that your ring O'Reilly plus out. He did it live and we forgot about it. Justin Turner is calling into our show just how great is move? Chris Brockman wants to remember. Oh. By the way Bruce Arians is calling an hour number three to. The head coach of Tom Brady. Just, GonNa there's been. Conscious of Tom Brady lured car bill bell in this guy. truecar about it. It's amazing. That's it. That is granite. That's insane. The goat is high school coach Thomas had like four coaches, his whole life. Probably. Warner. I'm just saying. Joe Warner is high school giving his college is pro now now, but like it's crazy, that's So Great. Bruce Arians and Tom Looks Amazing does in practice looks so good all these video the. Posting he through rock he looks. Catches the Best Greg. Corner. Who is unbelievable whoever's doing the video editing for the box killing it killing you're doing the NFL films zooming on the viral.

The 75O: Thoughts on the first week of free agency for the Cowboys

"Welcome back to the seven five. Oh, I am your oh Arju cho-. He is your seven five Mr. two times Super Bowl champion college football hall of Famer and the biggest Notre Dame fan. This side of the Mississippi. Tony casillas. What's going on, man? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. This is pull the curtain back there in our in our podcast and we record in Europe Friday morning. I get up early in the morning big twelve siriusxm shell out. So retaken the loser. Yeah. Yeah. I yet to ask him the story about Orlando scandal, I'm going to get to that someday. So I decided since you know, I don't look I don't have my makeup on or anything like that. And you can actually see me video lies when we do broadcast that I want to still the ball cap on. Well, the ball cap that I have as Goff, and it's called live lucky in its brand GOP brand Goth hats and actually has a four leaf clover on the front. That's four Lee. Yes. Yeah. Look at. Remember what? So anyway, you may reference to it being Notre Dame. And although it is you'll Saint Patrick's Day weekend for, you know, the the Irish which I am part Irish yet refer to it as Notre Dame hat, and you know, it's kinda like everyone's perception the Dallas Cowboys you either love them or hate them. While you've got reason maybe the ladder. Yeah. A catholic. So I can't really hate that much. So, but whatever you say like the iris. Hey, all I want is a be lucky this be lucky Friday. So I'll work at that big fellow. Well, that's good. I'm personally right now, the golf gear that I'm into Bill Murray's line William Murray stuff because I haven't do I'll send you a link. He's got these. I got my dad, but not for Christmas, and they have polos and has and stuff they've got some cool colors styles. Well, he's not the most color-coordinated dude, you know, because I watch him, you know, I was sitting in Caddyshack when he plays in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and he's a scrape for the game. So I'm just kind of like a mix and match brand. What is it dry fit? It's description required. The shirts are kind of polyester not not quite dry fit. But definitely good for round. And I mean, the colors aren't bad or weird. But he's not afraid to use. Something like lime green. I'll say that. Okay. There's good. They're they're they're awesome. So I'll say like I say you can't go wrong with Bill Murray talking about Caddyshack, which I think is arguably one of the top golf movies are movies ever made. But that's just main you speaking of because this is that time of year, we're going to get to Cowboys in a second. But not this week in the players. Oh, gosh. There's watching some of this morning. That's a great question. I always got to go with tiger. I think he was to honour yesterday. But God, it's such a great, Phil. It's kinda hard to pinpoint one do. I guess I guess hits the straightest. Great. Well, it's guy. I want. I guess I'll go with Dustin Johnson. Maybe it's not a bad pick. You know, we're recording Friday morning Tigers had a rough Friday morning. A rough. I'm gonna kills me. Because when it when it comes to the four majors and the players it bothers me when Merican does not win. You know? That's this is our obviously the open isn't isn't ours? But our home turf, you know, what I mean like we've got a world filled with me, and it's one of the best fields, and you know, assemble for golf in. This is kind of my guess is a major, but it should be a major, right? Let's menaces a tremendous setting. But I don't know. I haven't yet. I'll yeah. Go with him. And and who else? Mainers? Off course is penalized. You so much, but I'll go I'll go with the gunslinger doesn't Johnson. I hope you're right. My pick upsets me, I'm gonna go with Tommy Fleetwood. Just because actually like he's been knocking at the door and second just then you just said it bothers me. I mean, but I'm telling you I think's gonna win. I hope I'm wrong. I hope you're right. I would love to see DJ get it. But. You said you want an American to win and you kinda contradicted yourself. Tommy Fleetwood all I want an American win. That's insane. But if I had to put money on somebody I'm putting it under right now. So easy. A pretty good toys. That's what I'm saying. I'm putting money. I'm I'm not messing around. The question is will he last that long because that's a brutal. That's a bro off term. But that's a good point. That's a you know, what this something about. I like it's hair, but they're talking about he's got the greatest hair onto her and an English ride Z's of a guy British talking this morning. But I don't know I. I picked, but I'm not too far out of the hair for just not a it's not a Goth look offers look at that. That's what do you make them when shorts because this object? I love it too. I don't know if people about it. It's ridiculous. I think about this. You know, walk into golf course. And I don't walk. But walk before you think about is people understand hard is actually to walk five miles around when it's a hundred twenty degrees outside. Hey, it's all about convert. I do think this and a promise everyone. We'll problems everyone. We'll get onto free agency. And you know, the big sign of the Dallas Cowboys this week and how happy you are. But there's something about having the pants the and the shirt, and that's a attire. But I think for the just the whole comfort and a golfer, and it's gotta be, you know, we're pants the whole for eighteen eighteen holes, and you know, four hours it's got to be ungodly hot. I agree. And there's something to when you turn a corner on a course, or whatever, and they're kinda hot and you wanted shorts, and you just catch that breeze. You know, what I'm saying just like cools you off in Thailand just to make that turn and restock on beverages and they're conditioning everything those guys out there working, but agree, I think maybe they should they should change that. Hey, at least they get the shorts on a practice round. Come on your practice. You're not you should build aware of what you wanna wear your. It's not officially the tournament. Hasn't started. Exactly. The world is changing. I hope on a help your help DJ pulls it off. But. I don't think that's going to be the case. I'm a fleet MAC. Yeah. So you mentioned cowboy stringency, and maybe the reason why the players are. So interesting is because there have been no real players for the Cowboys in free agency. So near the end of this week this first week of free agency, the only real outside play. The Cowboys have brought in they did bring in Cody McElroy tied ended played baseball that we talked about. But on Thursday, Tony. You don't have the tagline anymore. I don't have your whole deals with with gathers. He played basketball. I was just getting guys that played Thailand's dual athlete. Yeah. Maybe they'll get they'll find a guy somebody who's planning the players this year. Tony's going to accomplish next year. But you know, what we gotta remember here to play football. Not what they used to play. Right. So yeah, I thought I'd bring that point out to you so cody's on the squad and the Cowboys on Thursday brought in an interior defensive linemen, generally he's moved around and bit but Christian Covington the Houston Texans Bom, Tony. You can't say the Cowboys are doing nothing. They got Christian Covington out of the football powerhouse that is Rice University. Wait for it. Wait for it. Pregnant pregnant pause. Hey, there you go. That's making noise and the free agency for the Dallas Cowboys, everyone does that pacify that get your get your free agent full for the week because they made this really drastic move feel like like, we're on a diet, and we finally got to eat, and we just got to eat like like to French fries that I mean like that was like just like cool that was delicious. You know what I mean? It's very it's a it's a big tease. But hey, this news on a diet six to three ten plates inside interior defensive linemen so answer that I guess the rotation inside. I look you're you're not spending a ton of money. He's you know, he's played in you know, the the same front. It's JJ watt debating clowning. And but let me just put everyone knows. There's only really one that really. Equals player that's DeMarcus Lawrence, but hey, one of his crates and debt and now this is what they do. Yeah. They bring guys in that. They, you know, they really need depth ad, and you're not gonna spend a lot of money. I think that we've already seen that right away. I feel bad for Covington because he's going to be the victim of of sarcasm like we're doing right now because it's not the guy's fault at the Cowboys on active and free agency. You know what I mean? But he's the guy that everyone jokes. Oh, we got one whatever, by the way. Tony the Cowboys now have Christian Covington and Chris Covington defensive lineman in line. And Christian the new edition, whereas number ninety five walked Chris Covington, the linebacker was number fifty nine. What's odds of that happening? Thank about pretty unbelievable saying the two players the same basically the same name Christian. And Chris that's short for Christians for Chris. I guess that's what he does. And then the fact that both reagents, and you know, the birth the both came in at the same time. Here's the thing about it. This is going to be the story if he comes in. And he you know, again, I didn't spend a whole lot of money. What form so becomes then? And he makes a contribution. Everybody's say. Wow. The Cowboys gotta still, you know, that's you know, that's bound to happen. So there's not really a big expectation here. There's not and he's classic Rodman. Nellie guy under the radar. Rodman gonna come in and get his best season out of him. Maybe he'll go get paid by the bears or somebody next year. I mean, that's that's what Rodman LA does. I mean, he turns think about all the defensive tackles that have played for Manelli while he's been with the Cowboys. I mean, he had Jason Hatcher who made some headlines we can get into a little bit. You know, he had Henry Melton who they brought in who went off to Tampa. After that. I mean, he's obviously had elite Collins to play around with. He obviously had Stephen pie that he brought in that lasted for a Cup of coffee. Now, he's got moly Collins. He's very high on Antoine woods is the latest guy. That's coming. I'm something special. You know? So he's he's really good at that. That's who Christian Covington is going to be. Will mean, and unless you're someone out there that I can think of and free agents a missing on. There's really not any I guess impact with players and guys are older. I guess the biggest name with name recognition Dom account sue. But what is he going to give each he's probably going to be just as much lesson and not there? I guess there's been glimpse of hand being able to play ball to is is younger form. But look at that. I mean, you'll get name recognition is not any dude at their that you that everyone like a, wow, I know that name but bring him in because you're not people so shake that they always think they look at the name, but they don't know the time, and, you know, the timeframe of the career which which at and these dudes that they brought him the names, you mentioned Collins, Anton would and some of the younger dies. I mean think about it. This think they really really need a good rotation. They need some presence. Pashas inside they really do because Taiwan Crawford. He is more. It can be your sewing guy. But he's more of an outside Russia in my mind. And he's good inside. Because he's quick you can get filled, and that's really what they need. They need someone Kristen Covington kinda minds me more situational player. More of a we're on stopper, and we'll put him in there. And we'll get up field maybe greats and plays play action pass. But other net, that's kind of way, I see his view his role. No, I think I mean again, I think it's a good signing action for the Cowboys. I think they need Deb certainly with the loss of David Irving. I think they drafted defensive tackle. I wouldn't be shocked. I agree with you. But you're right. I mean, like I would much rather have Christian Covington for one fiftieth of the price of Dhamma conch sue, but you know, so. Okay. So that's the big move actually for the guy was brought him Christian Covington. We have seen them lose a couple of guys we talked Colby's -ly went to the Buffalo Bills. Damien wilson. He who once had his is shot by paintball is now a Kansas City chief and Friday morning. Tony wait, I missed that part of his bio you don't remember that that was like two years ago. He had a late start at training camp because he was shot. Yeah. So we must not have been practicing safety goggles on anything like that. Or just one of those point blank. Situations. Anyway, so good to catch on that one. I thought maybe you were kind of Belsen little. Good luck to Damian with the chiefs Friday morning. Tony Cowboys lost another as Jeff swim agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars. I don't know how they're going to get by without just y honestly good for him. I hope I don't know. I haven't looked at it still. But certainly the I mean, we kind of knew that that was imminent that was something they weren't gonna bring him back. And obviously it would bring it back. You know, the gold again for one more one more last hurrah. I guess but gives them an opportunity go play somewhere Jacksonville and look maybe catching Balsam from Nick foles. He may have an opportunity to go Jacksonville. And again, I think now it's guys moving on and getting opportunities and being paid. Yeah. I think his life was the most impacted by Witton returning, obviously, hey and Rico gathers eventually because obviously the Cowboys are gonna keep like jar one. They've obviously got Dalton Scholtz. We'll see if they draft somebody as well. But but Jeff Suame appreciate the work. The Cowboys Tony their main focus has been bringing guys back. That's what they said. They were going to do. We're gonna bring guys back. We've got a lot of guys that need contracts, and while they haven't handed out big money to Dacca or see or DeMarcus Lawrence. They doing work. Tony, right. The cowboys. They have brought back since we last spoke. I believe we touched on them bringing back Jim is all AWali fullback of infamous fame in Indianapolis. They brought back him Fleming. Who's very valuable. You mentioned swing position player is very. Valuable swing tackle for the Cowboys because tyrant Smith's healthy. Certainly a question Mark, and they lost Beasley. But they did not lose take on Austin. He is coming back. Did you feel like these are good resigning or are? They just lukewarm water. I like the flaming I think you have to have the adept at the position without a doubt tackling you mentioned Tyron Smith. I don't. Dude is John Norris. I mean, there's not too many grown men that can wear knee brace as a. Is elbow brace? I've never seen that in my entire life. That's that's scary. And then also the it with pave on Austin they bring back from one more year. And really know we were talking about Kobe Z leaving. So there's your slot receiver tape on his fits at Lloyd right there. So you bring him back from one more year. But you just look at the economics of it all the guys you just mentioned. I mean, this probably minimal bringing guys back. I mean, they got nineteen million dollars and cap space money, and but you bring those those cats back, and again, it's so solidify some debt, but depth tackle shot the tackle spot and then at the slot receiver, which which any tape on can still do some things if he stays healthy. So I have no problem with that. And again, it's all about the economics of it doesn't cost them a whole lot of money. I just I don't disagree with. Anything or saying, I just think this is a really for lack of a better word ballsy way to live. I mean, if you're the Cowboys you don't have a first round draft pick. So you cannot add your team in that conventional. But when a second they've already got their first round draft pick. They gotta last year. That's true. I mean, they got it. They got a proven commodity and also a guy that really made a huge controversial contribution right away. So I don't think we should forget about that. I think people just thinking about today looking back at what actually happened last season, which is going to set them up for the future. Totally. They do have Amari Cooper. And he is a valuable part of their team is one of their best players. And so it's not like that just disappeared. I recognize that I'm my point in that. They don't have a first-round draft pick that they don't have that way to add a month from now when all NFL teams pick in the first round all the most they won't get somebody. That's really the point here. And so right now, the biggest name the biggest talent that is. Joining the two thousand eighteen Cowboys is safer Jason wouldn't Christian Covington. And so right now, that's just that's bold. I mean, that's know, they clearly have a strong belief in their team. And if it pays off it pays off. But I do think it is a bold way to live. Well, understand that. But I think we talked about this last week RJ. So when you go out there and look at the list of free agencies or free agents and you buy free agency. I mean who you're gonna. You got your board. You look at the guys you loss, and the guys are you're going to bring back what guys are out there right now that are laughs that fit your pay scale for this year. How you gonna add what do you want to add those guys you just want to just to say bringing someone in and like, okay, we we know what we need. We need help get another defensive tackle. Let's let's get a free safety. Let's let's get another attack. There's not too many those cats outright out there right now that people don't know about right? Well, let's do this or the actually. Yeah. Well, actually, no. Because all the other names. I mean, they're they may know, but they're guys that are thirties, and they're kind of beyond that second contract. If you will that you make or that first contract, you may they'd really really solidifies you spun actually, so let's do this in your opinion. What are the three biggest positions of need on the Cowboys? Now that for agencies a little over. I think obviously tied and has been for the time. You know has has some duct tape on it with Jason Witten. So and I think that's a huge position of need as far as two thousand nineteen which I still think they should draft tied in totally. But that's changed a whole right considering he came back slot receivers. Big time even coming back because you don't know how the guy played seven games. I. Year and to be fair. Maybe he could have played more. We kind of thought maybe the couch saving in for the playoffs. But again, the guy do get hurt defensive tackles a big need and safety's big news. So there's at least three positions of serious need. Right. Well, I hate to break the news to you. But defensive end loss Randy Gregory defensive tackle lease. You have a rotation dudes inside and you bring Christian Covington in to what you already had there. But the more concerns what are the rush or you're going to get on the edge to detach them up with DeMarcus Lawrence where are they going to get that that outside Russ? No Randy, Gregory, he's gone. And so all of a sudden they're looking they need a lot of a lot more than before Raina Gregory decided he rather smoke pot. So my point is there's you got to address that because I think without the the imminent without the rush without the capability creating some opportunities for yourself. Kandara then you know, whatever you do in the back end. Yeah. You know may help things solidify things. But I think you gotta dress that now offense aside. Slot. Never head. Yeah receiver, but I think that can be kinda patched up or maybe not a abandoned, but you can find guys in the slot. Maybe share a guy damage Danny amendola, the type of player he's out there. I don't know he's with the lines now. So he's bad. He's off the market that was what he signing two days ago. Yeah. He was he was early. Okay. We'll take him off my. But my point is guys like that. So, but I mean, I think now when I look at it it's all in a defense again guys no longer there. So that's that's kind of where I'm sitting. And I'm not trying to say that every NFL team has answers at every position and the Cowboys the only broken one, but looking at the Cowboys specifically, the reason I think that they're being kind of ballsy is because so they only have you mentioned pass rushing defensive in. They have to get over a hurdle in democracy contract. Just to get to the problem you described because the the problem is the problem, you describe involves getting there which involves getting a long term contract for the month all predicated off the Marshall the markets law. So that's that's one point here. But so we mentioned we'll call it four different positions that need some some work and the Cowboys have one pick in the top sixty and it's fifty eighth overall. And so again, I realize Mark Cooper's. The team. But that's what I'm talking about. They don't have a first round draft pick. So right now just today today's March fifteenth, but today, what is the answer at slot receiver probably take on Austin and Alan Hearns. That's a little bold. Right. And what's the answer opposite of DeMarcus Lawrence? Randy Gregory's, not they're probably Tyrone Crawford, and maybe taco Charlton. That's a little bold. What's the answer at safety eggs of your woods, which I think everybody has some belief in. But you know, he's obviously not Thomas. He just fighting a legend in that regard and Jeff heath that's a little bold. And then what's your answer in the middle of the defensive line? It's Christian Covington, and you have Rodman always that makes things a little bit better. That's not as bold as the other things but still a little bold. And that's what I'm saying. I mean, you know, I agree with you don't go get somebody just to get somebody. But they clearly have a large level of belief in the guys they have being able to be the answers at so many different positions. Well, I'm going back to the last year season defense, and I'm not and I think you brought up the Jacksonville Jaguars. A prime example to twenty seventeen to twenty eight team worth the same team. And and you know, who's to say each team is going to we really can't predict what the be like the fall on year things happen. But I think on the defense, I got, you know, got, you know. Younger guys younger guys getting older learning the system and getting better you bring in you know, you hit a home run. It looks like Laden Vander issue. I mean to do is going to be tremendous. So the combination of that. So those are the things you really really kind of. Hope and and you know, your whole philosophy and everything that you're to make sure those guys develop. But I mean, you know, the whole the spending money and everything that goes along with that. Now. For me when you mentioned the slot receiver. What you made me think I think you can really really work around that because you can put different guys in the slot position. Sure. Guys that are faster you maybe Michael Gallup and Alan her and someone has even throw you can throw Cooper there, but you can make you contain different things. Now, the thing what may like about that is that when you have Kobe's -ly, certainly he's a slot receiver. So you know, you kind of anticipation what the offense is routes and everything like that. So I don't I'm not as concerned considering you just kinda maybe think about that. I'm not really concerned about the slot receiver because space and tape on this the other personnel. They may have that. They can they can utilize that position. I agree that there are more pressing needs. I'm probably at this spun more worried about safe really dislike slot research. I think we just kind of get fixated with that. Maybe the body, you know, the shorter guys of wet. We gotta blame it on west Welker. And he kind of make the slot receiver, really vogue. Really, it's always been bow. But you know, what? I mean, this type of body time we're living at a time where the reigning Super Bowl MVP's. Juliette omon. But it is valuable and while I agree with you. It's maybe maybe not as big of a need is other things you only have one pick in the top sixty. So you can only address one of these places. And you know, that's what it is. It is ballsy to live this way. I it's ballsy in that they must believe to a large degree in a combination of exam your woods. Alan Hearns in the slot. Because. He's just like you gotta get over the DeMarcus Lawrence, right? All Allen ruins has got to get over that horrific leg injury just to be healthy enough to pass. I forgot about that a lot of people Nisha when they think about that that whole thing. But according to all the medical staff trainer, and she should be good to go. So I wanna I wanna talk about what Jason Hatcher said about the Cowboys. But before I do we mentioned top Charlton guy. The Cowboys are going to be counting on this season. I think that goes without saying his third year former first round draft you've talked before about how you've heard some things about how he has for lack of a better way to put it attitude issues, and they'll come out and a lot of ways. Tacos been on Twitter a lot lately, and he's quoted some videos on Twitter of himself, saying see I can do this whatever and trying to pump himself up, and I get it. I mean, the guys dealt with a lot of criticism and. Nobody should really have to do that. But you know, Ryan Switzer former Cowboys receiver had his own tweet defending himself and said, you know, if I saw sixty five to seventy percent of this naps. I would you know, I could show you what I could do and taco kind of echoed that sentiment Friday morning. Somebody tweeted at taco and said that he was an amazing player and asked have you ever thought about playing three tick a lot of people have thrown that the idea of taco kicking inside and he quoted that tweet in sarcastic manner and said I was thinking more of a box safety. You told me if I'm coming out of left field here. I get he's been sarcastic, obviously. But I don't it for whatever reason I'm not thrilled with taco, you know, getting testy in fighting a little bit on Twitter like dude just just just play. You know, you shouldn't yourself over that. Right. I mean, let's say you talk. I get him in that would not be cool, but you're not gonna change people's minds by being sarcastic on Twitter like people only want to see one thing. And that's that's an unfair. React. But it is the reality. I can't echo mine. My happiness for for. Not having that. It's not having that social media back when I was planning because it would be if you really want to go, right? The negatives start, you know, go to your your Twitter account and let you can just get as much negativity is is you wanna have and having like refrain from responding to that, you know, von taco. I'm just doing. I'm being quiet. I'm doing my whatever training I'm doing because you know, what automate comes down to prove it to yourself. And then you gotta prove it to everyone else. Because whatever you've done in the off-season, whatever you've done to take yourself seriously and take the game professors Lii is gonna show on. Yeah. But my my sources and people that I talked about is the guy he thinks he's better than he is he thinks he's already DeMarcus Lawrence, and you know, I hate to to get on and Ripa guy that the first name taco because that's like one of my that's my number one. Foodie, but you know, what? Sometimes I've had some bad tacos. And right now, he's not being one of the, you know, he's not being he's been one of those mediocre ones. The ones that you maybe get the fast food restaurant, but you know, for him he just needs to worry about what he needs to do to make himself better. Whether it's if it's mentally, you know, you gotta get over that. That's the hardest part in an arcane is the mental toughness and being able to build a shoulder a handle that negative. Don't let that stuff seep in. And I hope and they need him. You know, what here's the thing about taco. He needs to be humbled and humble and humbled as much as possible. And hopefully, he's been humble the last two years because I think a lot of people think it just like everyone might member like three agency RJ, I mean three years ago we had to have a defensive and Pash rusher. A guy that was well, guess what they drafted talk Charlton. It was one of the hot the hottest selling jersey. Because I bring it in guiding taco, and he was gonna help you bring this, you know, hopefully team up with someone like the Marcus Lawrence guy's already had on there. And guess what's happened to right now? It's been a disappointment almost a I would consider bust. Yeah. I mean, especially when you look at the other fresh on Jack picks accomplish have had he's nowhere in. I mean, you look all the way back since twenty ten got Dez and tyrant and McClay born had some struggles. But at least showed some talent. To understand being a little sense of because I was a number two pick picking a player the draft. And I felt like I felt like I was, you know, didn't live up to the expectations of the fans or you know, and I had to fight through that. But for him he needs to. And that's the thing with social media just needs to get, you know, get down in a bunker, and do whatever needs to do shadow someone like the DeMarcus launches had issues, but that's a concern now. Because all of a sudden now the Cowboys are faced with an initial Charles tapper. They drafted him and he's yet to be on the field. And I don't know what I don't know what the situation is with him. But this two cats right there that they really really needed to make a contribution. And have yet to do that Charles's is added the picture, but they do have Dorrance Armstrong the rookie from. Out of Kansas. The mighty also football powerhouse. That is Kansas. Hey, you cares. But. Spent some players come out of Kansas or whatever point state. But I think that I let yeah. That's I think that's obviously rubs taco the wrong way. Is that a fourth round draft pick of Kansas last year? People already value over him. He's this first round draft pick out of the university of Michigan. I to get over that. I agree. I'm I mean, I'm not trying to be picky about this. I just I feel like tacos on Twitter fighting a battle that he cannot win. Top of being older sense on Twitter and your come on setting yourself up for disturbed yourself inflicting. You're like you commit and social media suicide by looking for that. It's I don't know, man. I just like sharing his highlights on Twitter, whatever it's just did. I I don't following. Maybe that's probably because I don't follow some players because you know, may sometimes I I don't I have an opinion, but maybe it skies like that. Especially when doing that. Yeah. That's great. Yeah. I'm glad you're in the gym working out or whatever you're doing. But you know, what let's see on the football field where we can actually use that utilize because I don't know. I don't know anything about his work ethic and offseason. Have you don't think anyone's heard about him that work out or anything like that? I haven't heard anything about that. It's all just been associated what he's done on the field. I know that last year he was training with DeMarcus Lawrence at one point. So there is that. But yeah, you know, hopefully, maybe he thinks it's like you're not you're not a seventeen million dollar player right now. Well, maybe the spire to be that way. And that's the problem. Our jay. And we we talked about this lashing on a show the season that that's that's thinks. He is who he is tried now should be treated like that, dude. You haven't done anything yet in the National Football League to be able to be treated that way. Or even be considered. You gotta earn that. He wouldn't call. Beasley had his goodbye. Tweet to college fans, like whatever taco quoted it and said, I'm really, you know, I mean, again, I'm not trying to just like pick at everything guy. I don't want this to sound that way. But he quoted it and said something like we never got to do our taco sauce celebration, which would have been cool. I mean, you know, what I mean? But it's like dude see like, you know, again, it's one tweet. But like do there's a lot of other things that you have to do before you can get to talking about celebrations. But when got got a podcast in both the both the host or or Hispanic, you know, we know a lot about tacos and everything else like that. But you know, the squirrel and the taco I I don't know if that'd be a good combination so taco whereas number ninety seven just like a former cowboy Tony in Jason Hatcher in other defensive linemen. We mentioned him a little while ago is somebody Rodman Nellie got paid. This was a gigantic story all over the place. Hatcher was on one five three the fan. This week would bend in skin. And you know, talking about some stuff how has your life now after football. You know, he said he was I think he's someplace baseball, and he's really into that good for him. And then they got into his days with the Cowboys. And he just a visceral Tony Romo just for no reason. You know, I he he hated on Dako for a second and said that hated his strong. But he said, you know, he needs to prove it to whatever. And then out of nowhere just says Romo. Just didn't have. He didn't have the it factor to make people around him better. When I was there. He was a bigger than the team. It was like Romo and then the team like nobody in the locker room is really going to respect you like that. So I really don't respect him as a player based on what he did at the team that a lot of people didn't see he was a great player. He got all the numbers, but I'll take Dak over Romo anyday because that has the ability to make people around him better. You will run through a wall for deck but Romo hell, no. This is something that your buddy during what's kind of said, although nowhere near as grisly at the end of December. Your thoughts. Person. I think it's it's a lot easier to make comments and really this rip your former teammates once you've been out of the league for me. I don't how long would he retire couple years ago last night was like why Redskins? Anyway, my point is that I always, you know. For me. Maybe it's just because of me, and maybe the guys that I play with or just to I am. I always thought if you have a problem with someone then you address that. And so I you know, what thing about I'd like to ask Jason this. When once is it it ever been different one is the quarterback. And now certainly with the way they pay quarterback hasn't been the face of the franchise or the carry the franchise look around all these different teams that are getting paid twenty to thirty million dollars. Why because they not bigger I mean, you could make a case for that. But that's you know, that's what the franchise builds our brand around. And I don't know I'm sorry. I thought he been in a league years and looked around and realized that dude every team you go to. Has that type of philosophy? And you're just now realizing that once you've been out of retirement football and the whole deal with respect or not having respect a quarterback. Well, first of all you need to think about yourself think about your job. And and I'm just trying to go back with Jason when Jason Hatcher played. I don't think I really remember. Demarcus ware was tremendously Jason at times. Good played. Well, but I don't remember team that really really lit it up when it came to win in championships or anything else like that. And into the point of Tony Romo. I mean, I've been around different leaders. I've been around different guys, you know, lead on the field, and maybe aren't the most personal guys. But I never really heard anybody saying about Tony Romo because you know, what? When he it's all about what you do on Sunday. And by all accounts in Tony Romo. He put up the numbers and he didn't make the clutch plays at times. But to me, I think he ballots himself as ring of honor a candidate. And what's that say about his contribution to franchise that you know, that that was bigger than the franchise. Well, Hello Jason. It's been like that forever in the National Football League. Are you just now noticing that now? Yeah. You know, three fifteen twenty nineteen. Yeah. I mean, it is kind of shocking to serve to be surprised that the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys would be larger than life. A lot of a lot of what he said was really weird, for example, when he was talking about that he said, I think Dax should be on the franchise tag, not democracies, and that's that's literally not possible. So like, I mean, his understanding things might be a little loose now. That's okay. I mean, for example, and I'm not trying to trash Lyman. I'll always stand up for my defense. That's on a realistic. I'm not trying to trash Jason Hatcher by any means. But I take the word of Darren Woodson, for example, a lot more seriously than I do Hatcher. Would he was leader in his own right? I mean, this is just I mean, I don't mean to put it this way. But a random defensive lineman from those teams coming out and talking about this. And that's why wouldn't Darren Woodson said it was it was kind of you know, kinda raised dry browse. But he didn't he didn't put it like this. He just said, and I think what what he said is true that Dacca's just closer to the guys on average. He's you know, he's just better friends. That's really what it boils down. He's better friends with guys on average, then Roma was and that doesn't say anything other than that. He's just maybe a better friend. And I totally by how that makes you believe in him, whatever. But this idea that Roma was just this egotistical maniac or whatever is absurd and it felt like, you know, hatchet just kinda got down on this path. And just. Turned on some blinders. And really really really went far. He also went as far suggesting the Jason Garrett sabotaged Wade Phillips a lot of people have floated that idea out in conspiracy theories, but his way of defending it was ridiculous. He his own argument. He said, you know, we were running three plays. And it was like dude what you know. You know, it just it didn't make sense. This look like he was just trying to destroy stuff on the wall. This hopefully, something would stick and know. Back to back to the whole deal. And I think I may have spoke about this talk about this show tour egg -ment to me was you know, to me he is tremendous quarterback in one of these a good dude and has so much respect for what he's done on and off field. He does so many philanthropy things and everything else that people don't know about. But I just know Troy Troy wasn't the most personable guy. I never went out to beers. And we didn't you know, we didn't collectively, you know, there was points where Troy seem stole it in a constructive way. Where look, you know, he's he's focused on football. That's his personality trolling and your younger. But I mean the stories about him with the media. He wasn't the most personable guy. The first thing that people said when he became a broadcast. Wow. That's because personality start coming out. So yeah. But you know, the. The perception with the players. You know, my Troy doesn't like me or maybe he thinks he's better than team. No, no, no. That was no-one early. They thought that. And certainly he was big he was larger than live at large the franchise because look what he did, you know, pro football Famer and three Super Bowls, and this everything he did. So I don't think he interpret data's negatively that. Look, you know, he doesn't he doesn't. Go have a beer afterwards. I mean, hey didn't matter. Look what he did. And people love Troy, so yeah, I think that in the personality. Yeah. I think you have a guy that has like hang out with the fellas. But then plays on the field. I mean, what would it mean? What what better relationship? Could you ask for because most quarterbacks they're unique? They're not they don't gravitate and hang out with the fellas. I mean, just kind of neat. They have to be focused. I mean, it's a it's a lot. Incorporate a lot more responsibility that a lot of other players can't do. I mean, there's a lot of things you can do a player because the position play. But as a quarterback, you got a lot on his shoulder, man. There's a lot of ride on the line. I would never wanna be quarterback be scrutinized and vilified and. A top -sition every every dollar that they make they earn especially if the great ones, I agree. I think using Choy a great example again, just because you know, I don't know. But. I do think you know, because we've heard from several different people. I think that may maybe there's some truth to the fact that maybe Roma wasn't the most person. But you know, I I think I think the truth is a lot closer to where they're in Woodson laid it out just because during Woodson wakes a lot more sense. Yeah. It sure would he wasn't like, oh, I don't respect him. It was just hey, you know, what man, you know, from from one I can tell from what I've heard whatever they're just closer to deck, and I totally buy that. But this whole like, oh, I didn't respect Romo thing. You know? I want a lot of games. He did. The guy all they had the guy certainly was more responsible for Cowboys success than Jason Hatcher. In fact, Jason Hatcher is last team or last year in Dallas, the two thousand thirteen in two thousand thirteen cow was were literally one of the worst defenses to ever play football. And I just it's what you worry about your job or about winning and worry about being able to coexist in -ccomplish something on your side. And actually the biggest part of this component of that is worry about winning, right? And almost saying twenty thirteen at defense in wasn't that. Wait, wait Phillips, rob Ryan. Okay. So before rob that was after that. But the whole deal with the Jason Garrett the conspiracy to undermine him first of all anybody's visiting two points on and he's the point out to the to the owner because they kept they kept Jason win. They brought him as an offense coordinator making. He's being paid at the time. I believe highest paid off. It's a coordinator NASA. Footballing broad wasn't nothing to do with the way Phillips. They brought him in before they brought in Wade after though seven season made him highest paid off of coordinator because the ravens and falcons both wanted to be their head coach more form. I just I mean, it just felt again fact checking man. Yeah. Check your facts every once in a while. I'm sure there's again, some maybe not truth, but some interesting data here, but it just felt like really weird, you know, stuff to say, honestly, the other big topic this week Tony because the Cowboys refused to sign any players and give us anything fun to talk about. There was a report this all Senate around teddy Bridgewater who has decided to return to the New Orleans Saints now he originally had decided to return, but then got second thoughts was considering the Miami Dolphins who need a quarterback that might be worth either. Marines will see? But the reason that was reported by Clarence hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram had a tweet that teddy was giving some more thought to Miami than originally was because he and his camp sort of feared that next year because if teddy returns New Orleans, which ultimately did he's obviously the future star. But the teddy was worried about that future because next year Sean Payton could be leaving coach Dallas Cowboys. So again, if you're teddy, and you say, okay, you know, what twenty twenty is going to be my year. Drew's going to retire. We'll wait a minute. John Baines going to be non hold up. I don't know if I wanna do this any more. But again, the interesting point for us is that it's another link between Sean Payton and the Dallas Cowboys, and I'll just lay out this conspiracy theory for you. And because we've been talking now with Jason hatch on whatever I mentioned that I do. And I believe this that I do think it's very ballsy to Cowboys to handle their team the way they're handling it now. And maybe they just believe in themselves and good for them. If they prove me wrong, but they're not bringing in many outside for agents. They don't have a first round draft pick. They're giving Jason Garrett a rookie offense coordinator who was a backup quarterback two years ago. Jerry Jones has to so many times on the idea. Remember back after they beat the Jaguars who wanted to give him an extension, right? Then he said if you weeks later, hey, how how? Could you not give them one? Look what he's doing. And then all of a sudden Super Bowl. We gets cold feet says not we're not gonna do it. He's going to go this season on his contract. We'll see what happens. He's got to earn it that to me. I could buy I really I could buy it. I really could. So I don't know. So we saving his coins, you know, he's not spending money. He's making all these decisions because he knows that the season. The conspiracy would be that they're setting the Cowboys up to be bad. So that he has more justification defied. And that would be the look of I was looking at more of the financial and everything else. And this. This. I guess you're looking at the mission the fell for for failure in in the event they fail that this whole conspiracy. Which by the way, how many years this has been out there about Sean Payton coming. So as long as shock keeps winning and drew Brees is still there. I don't I I don't see this happening. I mean, I don't know. Drew Brees looks like he's he could play. He's looks like he's taken the same organic supplements operates taken it. So he may be around another five years. Well, it lines up though, doesn't it? I mean. Twenty. On this show 'cause you always opened up this new Pandora's box. I don't even think about, but, but I don't think that first of all I think Jerry realizes that he's not young anymore. And so he needs to be able to kinda right this ship out and hopefully players yeah's and. Intact. It. This is going to be the team that's going to get him where he wants to go because you know, he's he's not seventy seven or seventy six years old. And so I I hate to I don't really buy into those type of conspiracies now, it would be great Sean pay in. I mean, he'd be a tremendous, you know. Offensive mind and everything goes along with that. But I just don't I don't see that happening. I think that really that maybe killing more will be pleasant. We'll be we'll hopefully be pleasantly surprised to see what he does. But this whole notion that Sean Sean Payton is being talked about being a coach. And you know, the next apparent to air parent to you know, to Jason Garrett. I just don't buy that. Because there's time is running. Now. I mean, this is the thing they're built right now. And you know, here we are. No, you're very happy about this huge signing Christian Covington, by the way, that's times too. I know you're very pacifies. But I really think that they really feel like they have players in place and only neg- negative thing. I'm going to say about the Cowboys. There's some of these guys they get so many damn chances to that they trusted. I mean, just really took advan. Of and really just. Was a huge complete failure. When you talk about the David Irving's Randy Gregory's of the world. And I know it's a personal thing with, you know, drug addiction or anything whatever that may be. But I think they really really helped those guys he had those two cats hit on about that should be those guys just everything would have worked out the way we hopefully -ticipant it you had David Irving. Had Randy Gregory. There's your answer right there. Sure. I I don't disagree with that. I just find it. I find it very interesting that after the Cowboys beat the Jaguars and October it was rumored that they were working on an extension and then after the Cowboys beat the Seahawks in the wildcard around Jerry Jones, sit on one of five three if you were in my shoes. What would you do, you know? In other words, saying like, dude the guy just wanna playoff game. Like, how can I not extend him? And then a month later doesn't about face and says, no. We're gonna make him because he went from. If you were in my shoes, what would you do to? We're not going to extend him. He's going to you know, he's going to ride this year out. And again, the coincidence of two thousand twenty and drew Brees potentially retiring and that giving Sean Payton the ability to move on from New Orleans. His contract is up in as the saints head coach and Jason GARRETT'S contractors up is the Cowboys coach that just strikes me as incredibly coincidental. Look, I it's coincidental. But I understand teddy Bridgewater for for not wanting to. And I understand him wanting to go back and play for the saints. I mean him he gave up money to go. Not go to Miami. In a whole all this whole journey the injury Minnesota, and then finally finding a home and Norrland. Are they I don't know if I'm teddy Bridgewater. I'm playing I'm worrying about today. I really can't really can't on the future. But I want to be in a place where I can prosper, and I think going to Miami. I just think that's not a kind of not a toxic environment. But it's an environment where they still have some place and pieces to the puzzle to get and I think it's going to be a long it's gonna be a long time for they get to really they're contending just based on the coaching change, and based on changes the personnel and not having really a quarterback there. Well, the Sean Payton to Dallas rumor is the new Earl Thomas Dallas rumor so didn't is is we have a new thing under. No this timing's. Good pay paid excuse me. Sean Payton his contract. He doesn't have one for next year and the Cowboys at some saying dude it makes. Yeah. But I I think that getting back to Jerry thing. I have I mean. Yeah. I don't have a problem. I don't think they should extend Jason's contract. I mean, you want to read into, but he said what I always been so long. It seems like he's been here for twenty years, but this will be his ten season signed ninth ninth full season now in full seasonally about that's a long time. But someone to win one. What how many how many playoff games has to victor's playoff games, consider him, very lucky to even get the chance to even continue coaching up to that point. But that's what I'm saying. So, you know, it's it's agreed upon that. You know, things are on convinced along, you know, all this team for. It's not an unconventional wisdom here. They are unconventional. But if it was if it was you, and you knew that your entire career basically hinged on this season. You're the Cowboys head coach. And you knew that even though you have Mark Cooper. And you don't have a first round draft pick. You have one pig in the top sixty would you would you sit on your hands and free agency? If it was me, I would be saying look, dude, I might not be here next year. This is not my money. We're going to go get how ever much help. I can get to make us good. It's an awfully weird kind of complacency. Well, I look at it this way Jason getting GARRETT'S going on nine full season. Okay. He's been here. He's made a lot of money here. He's won two playoff games. If he gets fired next year. Guess what it Jason Garrett wants a head coaching job? He'll have a head coaching job. Your after book that right now. That's interesting. Are you word if you Jason Gert? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I'd like to stay here. Another nine years. I like to stay here for twenty years, Dallas. But most look around you. It's kind of like Jason hare Dacian Hatcher look around. You. What's alone Jeb for head coach and NASA football sure, surprise make a law. Look, I you know as much as I love your conspiracy. And I think it's hey sounds good to me. I mean, it'd be interesting Netflix show. Thank Jason GARRETT'S really worried about. Situation. I have a contract because guess what he will have a job. They'll be plenty of Josh Jason Garrett. If he not the Cowboys coach, he's not the coach here in two years. Well, so then it it comes down to being one of two things, and we won't know the answer for some time. But the answer one is the conspiracy theories true that Jerry's orchestrating everything that it leads to Sean Payton twenty twenty. That's whatever believe that. If you want answer number two is that you're going to tweet that today tweeted in a couple of times, I wrote a Henry tweeted tag me I wanna comment on this. But option number two is that Jason Garrett is option to has has an b to a is that Jason Garrett is either a soak confident in what he already has with the Cowboys that he feels you know, what I've got what it takes to get it done here. We don't really gonna make any moves whatever option to be is that he feels you know, what man we got some stuff. Whatever happens happens. Like Tony said, I'm going to be a head coach. Next season matter why if I got a pack up and move whatever man I can move moving. Not that bad. I'll pay somebody to do it. I made a lot of money. Like Tony said, that's what I'm saying. There's one of these things has to be true just based on everything and I'm excited to find out which one it is the IM too. So the the meteors running on your on your conspiracy. Well, this was a good time. We appreciate all of you. Joining us. Tony predicted Dustin Johnson will win the players. I don't think he's going to be right. Although I really hope that he is. Merican born baby. Let's go DJ get it done, and let's hope digit gets done on Sunday final pairing against Tommy Fleetwood. Yeah. That would be great. Wouldn't that be great shootout on down the island was an island green on sixteen seventeen seventeen? And how about that whole call it a percentage what percent of golfers will wear green on Sunday because the Saint Patrick's Day. I don't know. I don't know how many of them really. Would celebrate it. Obviously, I think really mcelroy's. Where Rory better aware? We mentioned Notre Dame kept walking away the whole Notre Dame get up. Exactly show to the I see I'm saying like seventy percent, dude. It's going to have some under on that. I'm fifty percent. Well, I hope I hope they do it in the spirit of it would be great. It would be awesome. It would make sense. So we'll see how a lot of green beer served on on Sunday. What's a percentage of that one thousand? So they will be green beer in green. What's your favorite green food? Oh, that's a good question. I'd had to go with. I'd have to go with brussel sprouts or they ring. Right. It's disgusting. That's lancer. God. It's disgusting. The reason why I asked you that because there's this recipe, we can actually you kind of Brown. Them toast them a little bit and really. You love that enter my wife now loves money. I love money. That's a good. Yeah. It's my favorite thing. But some sometimes you get checks and their tan, so well, how about your what's your what your I? Salad or Caesar salad's grade. I love spiritus. I love green being fair to Broccoli's grade. So there's healthy. I thought we're not to me think about there's not too many food that I can think of that as healthy. That's great. I tell you what I can fix. What you put on the green salad, man. I could start off with a ten cowers develop until about a thousand cowry mill. Let's just want stuff on there. You said we're both Hispanic guys. Some some green sauce on some inch Lada. Oh, yeah. That's considered green. There we go into lot of. Yeah. Just like Popeye them. So thanks for this. And then everybody will be back early next week. This was the seven five. My name is Spencer home by name is Jason Kurt. My name is Ryan nanny combined. We form the shutdown full stride. Keep telling you this. The forecast is technically college football podcast. But it's also a show about care disaster regional grocery stores. We live Tennessee Batman homeowners associations bears in video games. Pittsburgh Batman, the hell of being trapped group, text unreliable legal advice. I mean, there's also some actual football discussion about coaches, having huge contracts coaches making terrible decisions or coaches, saying really stupid things or the NC double A's saying released. Yeah, there's lots of stupid things in this big dome. Beautiful sport time Arkansas decided to use a captured feral hog as a mascot, and it escaped and wound up killing seven rattlesnakes a pig. And Coyote, sometimes we talk about okay? If you wanna take college football exactly as seriously as it deserves to be taken come find us on apple podcasts Spotify or wherever else you listen to podcasts. Like this one down forecast.

Week's Best (Lakers/Rockets brawl, Rodgers v. Rams, Cowboys' trade)

"Welcome to the weekend edition of the undisputed podcast on your host. Johnny taft. Today's podcast features all the best segments from this week sleet of undisputed with ended up interviews and discussions. We have a lot to talk about heading into next week skip, Shannon. Let's get to it. Welcome to undisputed. We are live from Los Angeles. I'm Jenny tapped here was skip Bayless. And hey crisper artists here to start Shannon out today. Good morning guys my games. So now, we actually have somebody sitting across me who knows something about. Oh, yeah. I heard interesting exactly how much he knows about. All right. We'll see I'll give you a fist-bump. Just what I'm the regular here. Special day. Oh my gosh. Great show. Now, we have a lot to get to like our LeBron Lakers in trouble will the Cowboys make the playoffs with Mari Cooper that one was for skip. And hey, is there a car cry baby? Let's start with some drama in the NBA Rajon Rondo in Chris Ball are currently serving suspensions for the roles in Saturday's fight CB three claims Rondo spit on him. But Rondo has continued to deny it told ESPN yesterday, I had a mouthpiece in my mouth. And I was exacerbated because I was about to tell him to get the bleep out of here. Rondo followed that up by calling out CPI threes character, he said, of course, the NBA went with his side because I got three games. And he got to everyone wants to believe Chris Paul is a good guy. They don't know. He is a horrible teammate. They don't know how he treats people look at what he did last year when he was in L A trying to get to the clippers locker room. They don't know. They don't want to believe he's capable of taunting and igniting. An incident he comes out and says, I spit and the media sides with that skip Ginny. What's you believe here? There's a whole lot going on here. But I'll start from the start by telling you, Chris Broussard, I believe that Rondo intentionally spat at Chris Paul at him. They were little Spitz that did not land. But he did spit at him. None the lis-, and I believe that Chris Paul given his long history of snapping and cheap. Shotting? Opponents actually exercised great restraint in only trying to poke at Rondos face in retaliation for that. Now. Let me go much deeper because I did love it. And I did appreciate it that Rondo yesterday actually went after Chris Paul's pristine image because it's the most overrated oversold overprotected image. In the history of the NBA because the truth is that Chris Paul if you really analyze his history of cheap shotting, he's the dirtiest player of his era, and I can make a case that he's the dirtiest player in the history of the NBA because of his history of cheap shotting opponents blow the belt was shots to the groin. And we'll do this in just a minute. We'll we'll go into more depth. I'm going to go through the whole montage the litany. But as you remember it started at Wake Forest and the ACC tournament when he took just a blatant below the belt shot right into the groin at Julius Hodge got suspended for a game. And he's carried that on with a blatant attack on Marcus, Saul, and Kevin Durant and Chris came in. I can just go on and on just just go to YouTube, and you can just start looking at the scope and the impact of them. Just knock you over. This is a dirty basketball player. And yes, I'm talking about the same guy who has starred. The for years in state farm commercials where he's the good guy and the same guy who got elected the president of the players association, which is mind boggling because he does have that good off the court side to him. But the truth is in the end if you step back from this the victim of the spitting incident should have been called out. And I'm glad that Rondo went so far to say everyone wants to believe that Chris Paul is a good guy. Now, he just went to horrible teammate in a lot of clipper teammates, starting with big baby. Davis. We've had on the show and a set at sitting in the seat right here said that he was a horrible teammate with the clippers Rondo has been no angel himself as it's not that he's a bad teammate. He's just difficult to coach coach right with coaches. But in the end, Chris Paul because of his twin brother cliff Paul in the commercials people start to think, that's really Chris. And as a basketball player, that's not really, Chris and. He's LeBron's one of his closest friends. I mean, you could make a case some people do that. He's the closest of the group to LeBron. Right. You know, this very well. I think that's a good. Okay. So that helps him image wise, and then the players honored him by electing him the president of their association. Well, that's that's strong stuff. But Rondo in retaliation is calling him out for getting a pass from the media, which he does because all of these things all the way to the remember, the Mark soul. So it's the end of a closeout game the playoffs. Memphis versus clippers and Chris Paul GIS snaps and takes a running start at Marcus disol- and just smashes him right in the groin, just doubles over Marcus all. And then he's obviously ojected the game's over the series is over by Joey Crawford. He's ojected and as he walks off to court several of the Memphis grizzlies run including Zach Randolph to shake his hand. And I'm thinking, no, you should fight him. He just did that your team. But again, that's the way most players see Chris Paul and he's getting an incredible pass for this. Because I think Rondos reaction to him was based on all that he's gotten away with in his career that they're really the same kind of player. They're both undersized battlers, obviously. But they're in different packages because one can be a difficult teammate one can be difficult to coach. So in the end, I still believe, and I don't know why Rondo won't take some ownership of little Spitz something spill came out of his mouth, right? Yeah. I'm with you on a lot of that. I tend to side with Rondo more on this. And when I saw the video before he spoke, there's clearly something that comes out of his mouth, and it looks like he kind of you know, his jaw like he sets his mouth to to spit middle spits too. But he made a convincing argument yesterday. He said, look, and I think what happened was he was talking. I had a mouthpiece in. So that makes it tougher. Okay. But you can't spit with is possible. But it's tougher with a mouthpiece. He was exasperates us his worse. If you're not if you're breathing heart is possible that something flies out of your mouth on accident. And that's what I tend to believe that something flu. I don't accident because Chris Paul didn't respond. He reacted like if I was talking to you up close and you accidentally on my wife's moth, you know, he didn't react like like, Iran. Ndo mate Rondo center point, like if I just spent on somebody I'm not doing this and looking away. I'm guys in the punch me is gonna throw down. Right respond convinced that there's no question spit flew on Chris policies, Acharya not. I don't think it got on his he did wipe he wiped his face. So that makes me think it got on his face. And then I think perhaps after they scuffled LeBron is Chris Paul. And according to Rondo, Chris go to a sideline reporter for ESPN and told him he spit on me. He was yelling. He spit on all the way to the sideline. See I'm wondering if at that point Chris understands the ramifications of what just happened like an, and I know all the players had to be expecting more than four three and two games. Because the last I'm happened in two thousand six Carmelo Anthony got fifteen eighteen other Jared Jeffries gets in JR Nate, Robin Robson. They both. Got ten for they got they squared off through punches. So Chris may be thinking as the players association president. This could be ten games could be fifteen games, whatever. And maybe he starts making the excuse. 'cause I just don't think he reacted like sayings Christly got spit on. Okay. I got it. But if you're saying any of the little spittle, I'll just call spittle if it landed does not have reason to be screaming. He spit on me. Well, if an onion if you and I are talking face to face this heated and a little comes out. Okay. Probably tell if you did it wasn't speaking. When he was spitting. He was just kind of turned his face to the side. And he was trying to dismiss Chris with little Spitz. Just just like this is what I think of you in whether it landed or not is debatable. But Chris was angry enough and startled enough that he thought about it for just a second. And then he said how can? Retaliate without getting a fifteen game suspension. I'll just poke him in the face. Maybe I can get away with poking because I got to do something. But Rondos explanation was then why didn't LeBron or Melo who were standing close by watching. They didn't react to his little right? They not see them. Did they not? Did they not think it was a big enough deal to react to because neither of them jumped in like? Oh, yeah. Yeah. Right. There's no question speak out on his face. I in that, you know, again was he I dunno. I was acting when he when he did this to your other point. Okay about you're right. These guys came out. Ryan, Holland's joy, big baby. Davis says EP three was a bad team has a clipper. I spoke or text it with a clippers executive yesterday and ask them is Rondo, right? What do you think about his comments about Chris Paul being a bad teammate? He said he was right? You know? So Chris does have that red. And he said, the reasoning was he's abrasive. When he's on the court. He's directing traffic telling you go here go there. And according to him doesn't take responsibility for his mistakes. He's pointing out all all the teammates. You didn't do this. You did that do go here. But then when he messes up doesn't really take responsibility for it. And so those are some of the reasons that I've been told thing. Teammates have guessing as far as image. It's interesting. Remember, Derek Fisher? And there we had him on a radio show, rob park and the other night, good guy. But he had this pristine image s- Khanna similar. Maybe Chris Paul. You know, he he had written a book, and it was in Christian bookstores and on is like he had this era sane me. Then as when he really started in Utah when he left remember left there to go to the Lakers and people said it he blamed it on his child's illness. But it really wasn't that. Then he coaches the Knicks. You know has all these issues with woman is in it and all types of stuff all tied that seem underhanded. So I think that's someone to have a certain image being proven not to be that guy as far as dirty play. There's no question Chris does some things like that. But again John Stockton. If you ask way of that era who was the dirtiest player in. The league, you know, a lot of them say John Stockton. I kinda think that's a little guy getting away with what he can hit guys in the groin and stuff like that. I remember John Stockton punching anybody in the groin. He was borderline dirty. He was savvy in cl-, crafty and clever, and he's going to push it into the gray area with elbows and knees, and whatever, but can can we just run through the montage just for everybody sake of I think we're seeing him right now. This is Julius Hodge. Just saying right in the groin. He just slugged him in the groin. You got a game for that. This is on Anthony Davis. He just dribbles into Anthony's knee. And the next thing we see Anthony had to be carried off the floor to the locker room after this one. And here's the Chris came and he just hit him right in the groin, and Chris came and just couldn't take it pushed him back. And you're saying what what is that you're better than that? Chris Paul this just a little shot Kevin's, but Kevin grant that's on the Saul. Again, he just goes up and just. His hissy grimy rolling. We've seen Draymond green. Yeah. Kicking. I mean, I I've always written Chris's plays like that. Again. Some of them are over the line when you hit a guy in the groin, but I've written off as a feisty young guy who's just battling and. After after path because he showed you he set his historical precedent in the tournament against Julius. He just he just coal Cox right in the groin, just slugged him. And they said, okay, you're out for a game. This is last run with wake forces second year. Okay. So he predicted what he was going to be as an NBA player. But I still say those ads the state farm commercials are so affective that it makes people think subliminally he's he's really a good guy because his twin brother is a great agent, and it came because it's they're really good. They're affected. They got me in the world without Twinbrook. Okay. Even without him in now, Chris hanging out with this really nice guy agent and they're doing all at the stars. Just hanging out together. Because they're they're really they're they're thick as thieves. They're really having a good time. Well, after a while you think that guy's really good guy that Chris Ball. He does play like a really nice guy. So Rondo is saying the media is giving him a pass. He used the phrase your tampering with the evidence because you're giving Chris the past here. Well, I think that's true except the it's. It's ironic because Chris has become the victim of the spitting. When in fact, he has a long history of victimizing a whole lot of opponents that it just comes and goes, and nobody makes any issue of it. I think Chris even before to stay far Matt's. He had this pristine reputation even with what he did in the incidental tournament. I remember. There was an article. I don't know if it was ESPN the magazine Sports Illustrated, call him Saint Paul when he was in college or coming out that was his reputation and what he's done with the ads. That's what people do, you know? I mean, Michael, Jordan. I'm not saying he was a thirty player at all. But he was tough as nails. We know his situation with Steve Kerr and how tough he was on other player. Other teammates lead you see him in imprac. Right. But you see them in the Hanes commercials. And he seems to be like, Mike if I can be like, my I mean that what people do is they they put forward this image of, you know. Wholesome goodness. But they may be something different. Or at least when they're playing their game or behind closed doors. So I don't think is that what creates I never thought Michael was anything, but a cold blooded killer on the basketball court, and I covered his wing. I knew off the court, and I knew how he dealt with me. And he liked and respected me, but there'd be days if you caught him on the wrong day when he'd walked by a couple of us reporters and say, I ain't talking to you block blah blah's today dismissing wasn't I'll just laughed like that guy. That's the guy who went after everybody in his hall of fame, acceptance speech and just obliterated. Everybody thought had done him wrong. I'm okay with that. Because he was also on the court. You could just watch him. I think he was as a -ffective a- trash talker as low blow a trash talker as ever there was because he would take Gaza side when free throws to being shot and just get in there in just annihilate them, psychologically, and then back it up. All right. Larry Bird could do that too. But I think Jordan might have been the greatest at that. But when I step back the reason Rondo is so bitter about Chris Paul is even though Chris Paul's made nine all star teams Rondo made four in a row as a Boston Celtic, which is pretty good. It was ten eleven twelve and thirteen pretty good for a little guy. Right. But in the postseason Rajon Rondo has played at a higher level consistently than Chris Paul has. If you ask me who do I want in the postseason at point guard. I'll take Rhonda over Chris, Paul. And I know you think was defensive player. That's a good. I mean, remember Rondo had some incredible playoff games with Boston. And incredible. He's playing with hall of famers three hall of famers. But still last year. It was great in New Orleans. He was crate until they ran into the juggernaut the second round. But but again, it gets Portland in the first round was not great. I do agree with you. I think that eats up Rondo Rondo, I'm sure thinks he's as good as Chris. Paul if not better, and he's looking at Chris Paul gets all the praise. Chris Paul is going to be a hall of Famer Rondo doubtful. Right. Won't be a hall of fame. So I'm sure he's looking at that clutch play. And here's the thing with Chris. We talked about okay. Horrible teammate bad team. We you mentioned we talked about Jordan debt to teammates in practice. Okay. Is ahah. Thomas had a fight punched out Bill. Lamb beer in practice was hard driving. We have seen players like this before we know the Brian jumped on team mates and expects a certain level of performance out of them. Here's the rub. You can do that. When you win. Even if you do it before you win, that's fine. If you eventually win when you do it, and you don't win you just jerk. Yeah. And that's what I saw. It was Stefan marberry when I covered him when he was with the nets throughout his career. He looked at odd believe because he had mentioned some things is Ahah Thomas was a hard drive teammate. Steph was like Isaiah was Drovers teammates, art. He did this did that Steph tried to do it. The difference was Isaiah one. So Steph rub you rub teammates Ron way unless you win. I'm sure a lot of teammates didn't like the way Jordan treated him. But it was like, hey, let's just hop on the bandwagon with right? And I think that's this problem with this is unfair. But Rondo in the postseason sixty and forty five and again, you can argue better teammates. But listen those clipper teams were pretty loaded with players. I would say and the New Orleans teams that he was on that Chris was on. It was not bad because they gave the Spurs. All they wanted was scared. That last Tyson's. Yeah. And yet Chris Paul is forty four and forty seven in the postseason forty four and forty seven. He's made it to only last year that was his first conference finals Rondos played in two finals and three conference finals. So the point is sixty and forty five versus forty four and forty seven that's underachievement for Chris Paul. It's why I've called him in the past. I didn't last year, but I used to call him CPS zero because he had zero and he still has your rings. But the best I've ever seen him play was in the last minute against my Spurs in round one going back to whatever it was twenty news in New Orleans. No, oh when they came back. Spurs lost on the last night of the regular season of fall from second. What was six there's like that and had to play a first round match up with the clippers and they had home court and it went to game seven at Staples. And Chris Paul came back on a pulled hamstring and made a shot over Tim Duncan to win the game. But that was only round one. Then what happened around two he didn't play for a couple of games. They get up three to one on the Houston Rockets, and they collapsed when Chris comes back in the lineup. They just collapsed, and it was up the parable. You know, it was a it was a bad. It just looks bad on his resume that you blew three to one lead. Okay. Last year was the best I've ever seen play. But he was getting to play with the guy that he he knows loves and one of the top offense players in the history of this game. When you say James harden, his least top five player. Okay. So he gets to play which aims harden. And they're up three two two on Golden State. And I thought they had Golden State on the ropes and during that fifth gain people's his hamstring and has gone, and that's the end of the series. But that's the best I've ever seen play in the postseason was with James and a team that was the best team in the western the regular you didn't even mention against Oklahoma City the failures he had game five basically blew it. They're up up. I mean, he was the culprit. Yeah. And how many Golden State games when they had their early rivalry? I don't know. He just I've typically not hell small point guards. Like when you bring up the postseason record because I have an expected a small point guard to lead a team to a championship. Only one. They really did was Isaiah Thomas. But now in this era, it's beginning to happen Steph curry, and so now you can hold Chris to a higher standard and say why haven't you been able to get it done in this era? When point guards are leading so bottom line. I can't absolve Rondo from this because something came out of his mouth. But I did appreciate even if is not what you think it was purpose. I just think he intentionally spit at him not on him. But that's just me. And that's enough. That's still qualifies as late in purposely. Yes. No question. But in the end you made a convincing argument. I did love what he said yesterday. Because that's the first time a player of stature called out these called out do. Wait did lash Dwayne way Jimmy or two years ago? That's the way Jimmy Butler. Interesting. I think it's importing something because I didn't think about the body language that was a good point. How you just I thought he made a great. Description of his reactors, right? You spend on somebody. You're expecting to get clock. And skip you said it was building. So let's see if it continues to build. Even though the NBA season just started according to ESPN Brian Windhorst horse some leagues already thinking about next season. They feel that Kevin Durant quite Leonard Jimmy Butler and DeMarcus cousins will all be on different teams next summer as any Davis can't be free agent until twenty twenty teams are lining up for a potential trade. And although we Irving said he's committed to resigning with the Celtics plenty of exacts are still putting him in the free agent column. Joined once again, by Chris Broussard lot of names there. Lot of rumors. What is your gut feeling some of those rumors? Well, the guy I have the strongest gut feeling on is a free agent twenty twenty and Anthony Davis. I think he's going end up with the Lakers he signed with Rich Paul now. I know there was a Nike deal shoes. And all that helped him go to rich too. But we know riches LeBron's agent and clutch, and I'm not saying riches, gone direct him. They're like may. Make him go there. But he knew what he was doing when he signed we Rich Paul. He knew that the connection to the Lakers, LeBron and all that. So the thing is it may have to get ugly since he's not a free agent till twenty twenty because they'll essentially if they want if he wants to be an LA next season this season, he's going to be in New Orleans the whole year if he wants to be in LA next season, they're going to have to go to New Orleans and say look just like Jimmy Butler. I don't think he will hold out and get like that. But he's they're going to have to say look he's not resigning. He wants to go to the Lakers and try to scare off other teams. And then the Lakers would probably make a trade within because they got so many pieces they can get rid of. And that the I think that what pieces would they would require well requires a strong word because New Orleans how much leverage will they have. If they tell him, look, it's Lakers or bust. The and they don't get now. Willa team take a chance we saw. Oklahoma City with Paul George what if to run what stays in Toronto, and I'll get to him in a minute. But if he stays in Toronto now teams are going to be emboldened to say, hey, we saw it with two guys. They stay. So let me take a chance. So, but I'd say Brandon Ingram could be one especially depending on what he does issue has not off to a great start. Let's see how he plays. I don't you mentioned Ingram and Kuzina essays like a lot. But it is not. Twenty-five years Davis just in a vacuum with no strings attached. And no leverage ical on in a vacuum. It would require Ingram coups MMA and Josh heart to me that would be equitable. We'll it's just it depends on how much again. Well, you say in vacuum. You think that would be equitable? Yeah. 'cause you're gonna even if you have LeBron AD you still going to need some of I wanna keep Josh heart. I would love to go. I wanna keep we got land, you know, land, Dan, give them throw Lance or Lonzo lady, Lonzo beating got. But. Okay. So that's. Katie Angolan, the story was right on because around the league people do think this last year there and Golden State they're going to try to sell him on one more year. They kind of know he's not finishing his career here. But they're hoping one more Wigan convincing. Look you wanna play your first the first year in the new arena. Don't leave. Yeah. Right. That's going to be their cell and one thing that may help them with that is where's Katie gonna go? You got the clippers. Now, he could always do that. Does he wanna go there New York if Kyrie's not going with you or Jimmy New York's got to do some anew Verna get to max box. So New York, I think is only going to be in play. If there's somebody else they can go with him, you know, especially if they have a bad year for Zing doesn't play plays ten games can you count on him being healthy? But New York, we know we don't Katie like to go with stacked deck, don't we? No, he likes to go all aces. Well, the whole they fairness in fair if I'm Katie KP Porzingis and Kyrie that's a really strong team. But it's not like going to Golden State like, but he like what is kinda what LeBron's then I other than LA. I want some talent that I can win with. So I'll give him that would Illy. When they to to move. Kyri? Even though he said he wants to stay in Boston. I was hoping to executive last night that I think he's going end up somewhere else. SO? Here's because it's not just about kyri is about Boston. Like what if they don't get to the finest? They're not off to a great starters early. But what if they don't get to the finals? I don't know if I see this. But what if they don't make the Eastern Conference finals with kyri, and you made it without him. You got all these guys will they wanna give him five years. One ninety with the injury history that he's had and the fact that maybe we play better than Tatum coming down the pipe, right? Jalen Brown coming down the pipeline. So here's the things. And if they don't want to if they decide what if they decide we can't have all these max guys or we want to move on from kyri. I don't know these their whole year because are you going to trade him before the deadline February rather than losing for nothing as a free agent. Definitely or do you trade somebody else leg if I were them maybe trying to train Gordon Hayward? Because I think Jason Tatum better than Gordon Hayward. Jaylen Brown, I think will be if he's not already with right now. Right. I think Jalen Brennan. And I think horford's more valuable to you. I go to me Hayward's expendable or if they want so it could be all sorts of people. And then I mentioned Kawai, look, I've al- I've been told before he was even trading until now lake is LA. Now, the latest what after and I've been told it doesn't matter what he's going lay one or the other clippers or Lakers, but the Lakers field, they feel they think despite all these rumors that he doesn't wanna play with the brand. We'll we get quick Hawaiian AD. We ain't got that kind of play the lottery I'll try to which one you want. That's the thing which AD. AD eighty eighties better better. Right toronto. Because what if they get to the fine what caused them VP, and they're already? Did you see the video? They put out that they play show where they will be peace Catholic, you not do. Number two, have you betcha by day if you just number two draft of me or to. Forgiveness. All these bowling. He's ball until he gets hurt. He already missed a night of a back to back. Mrs single-game risk. I think that was rest. I think that was rest I wanted to see him less, right? Year co said if you come back the night off thirty five I will get you another night. I can just tell you thi- is going to start her. It's not what you would like nothing would not wishing Illo people's. Yeah. Well, you're just rooting for him to come to the Lakers. But anyway, I said it from the very moment that I that Anthony Davis side recalling support that I thought this was a moon that was going to get him to the Lakers. And I still believe that could be wrong. I've been wrong before but not very often. Get Bayless not very I ten times. So I feel very comfortable this Katie, look, if the only way this thing gets broken up in Golden State going to run here and win two three of the next championships. Katie breaks up because Katie breaks it up. Now, they become beatable if not gonna be easy because they play together before they've gone to NBA finals before without Katie. They won it won't be easy. But Katie is the one thing that come find that come playoff time come finals that you have no ASA too because I can run two guys at Steph. You got no Katie run two guys. He's still going to release the ball over Levin feet, and you can't touch it can play with his back to the basket. He could put the ball on the floor. He can initiate up. He can do all these things. So there's no answer. So if he doesn't break it up Golden State's go to win another two or three championship. What if what if AD or goes to the Lakers? We need both of. I mean, it is you want to stack your deck. Oh, look, it's ok album. All right magician goals, if Katie state and Golden State, maybe other players not Kawai will wanna go to a super team like that. But let's say they could get co is a free agent. The Lakers, you could trade for a D if you gave up like you mentioned you're packing skill and you have eight we've we'll go probably like something like seventy six and six AD LeBron and on seventy did you just say seventy six six you realize that record by rega-? Rega- gangs. Yes. Okay. Yes. We bet like a swimming pool. A guy Golden State's gonna go seventy three or nine with Steph, clay and Draymond. You don't think we can win three more games with wa AD Umbro? The challenge would be the adjustment. Right. That's a lot of adjust come playoff time. They'd be ready to roll. So by far, the biggest domino and all of these scenario. Ks number thirty five in gold right now. And he's going to tip the scales in one direction or the other stay or go. And then we're does he go. And it's interesting to me because the x factor and all this is Kyrie Irving, and you guys know how much I love Kyrie. But I don't love what I'm seeing from him so far because he's no longer, Kyrie Irving. And I sure hope that changes for his sake, and Boston sake and his future sake. But he's had two major knee-injury. And right now, he is tip toeing. Through games. He's like on ice just because he doesn't trust his legs yet. And I hope he does. But when you've had two major ones in your kind of sensitive young man to start with like, he's really thinking hard about as a thinker. He's deep thinking. And he's thinking this worth it is my knees rally, right? Yeah. What about the rest of my life and the guy that I replaced here. He played with a slight injury it caused him. So all that's going through because of the things he said what he said with the Boston media. They fan day guide. If you would have me, I remember this building full of crazy fans, you're gonna say about the game five when you sitting up on the podium talking about how great he would be foolish not to absorb all the information plan. With the grads player. This dude is unbelievable. And then two weeks later, I won't out. Yeah. Well, he may one out because they might want him out of Boston because they are so loaded. He's gonna have to hold off rosier now for some minutes because rose ears plan at a higher level right now. I really he doesn't he doesn't look at explosive. He doesn't look if quick I mean carries could put that into the bucket. It's not there. You said you just hope it comes together, and you hope is related to rust in injury. And things like that. And Danny aines has shown I hate to use the word cutthroat with Dan. He's a nice guy. Right. And I don't think he means wrong or ill. But he will do what he has to do on the way he straight business. Yeah. We saw with Isaiah. If he did that too is eight who played when his after sister's death and through the injury and was are near MVP the dots connect at Madison Square Garden, and if Kyrie's not Carini more than K D saying, I don't know if I want to just go play with Porzingis, and kinda strapped already, I don't know. And does he stay does he go? There would he might go there with Jimmy Butler. Maybe well, we know we're not going, Casey. Like Ron now. Now, I don't think thank you for joining. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have a tough hill to climb Sunday here now lay against the Rams on FOX. They're a nine and a half point underdog, which is the highest point spread against Roger since he's been the Packers starter. He's facing a Rams team. It's a perfect seven hours averaging nearly thirty four points a game, Shannon. What does the point spread tell you until the big has a lot of respect the ultimate routes baked what the the Rams they're very good football team offensively as you mentioned average and thirty four points a game or almost and it tells me that the Vegas looks at Green Bay, although they have transcendent quarterback that are very flaw team. They giving twenty nine at least twenty nine points and four their five game. They watch C J Beth or just the other night car of them up and Beth it is but okay quarterback. But he's not Jerry Gulf port offense does not possess. What the Rams possessed and Todd Gurley. Brennan cooks. Cup Jerry golf. So this is what? But it also should be an indictment to the Green Bay front office because you've done a very poor job of surrounding that player with weapons not on the opposite side because everybody automatically assumed what when you have transcend the player use around him with offensive talent. No. But you'd better get somebody that can stop the opposing team and don't force him to every game have to go out and score thirty five points in order to win. And that's what they've done. You look at the Green Bay's defense. It says Green Bay yo y'all not very good. And it's putting a lot of pressure on your quarterback. And he's Mick Vegas tales. Meet it they believe Aaron Rodgers steal a little, Nick. That's what it tells me. He's gonna take his brace off. What he's saying? When I see it. I believe it. Well, that's what he said. I don't care what he thinks. Betas? I see better not hear people say a lot of things you seem run that four to forty right up the gutter he ran for two forty pin yards. So you are. And also in our to know what he's going to go on Brady has never been a nine point. But when Tom Brady ever going into a game with someone said, you know, what their coach is better than coach Mike McCarthy going into this game. I don't believe there's a there's a general manager you say, okay. Who would you rather have Mike McCarthy? Sean McVay right now, how many general manager of the thirty two will say they will take Mike McCarthy. Sean McVay there's a lot of indictment to go around. But what this mainly tells me about Vegas who does these kinds of things for living that they have the ultimate spec for the Rams, and they don't have a whole lot of respect for the Packers. They have respect for Aaron Rodgers. But they say, bro defence. Buying it. You know, it's funny. I hadn't planned to bring up Tom Brady. You're going it up. That's a great idea. I like that. Because that frames at all Eureka. I see it now comes clear to me the oddsmakers are just saying what I've been saying all along that Aaron Rodgers is. No Tom Brady. Because obviously to your point if Tom Brady we're going to the Rams this Sunday. What would he be maybe a three point underdog eighty pick him or Mike McCarthy probably be a thirteen point underdog? If he he got. Bella jank got coaches ever walked the sideline. I'll really yes. So coach Bela chicks defense has given up the twenty fifth most yards in the NFL this year. Green Bay's only given up the eighth most yards. That's interesting. To learn a little closer. It's fifteenth for Green Bay based fifteenth in points allowed but twentieth for the genius Bill check twentieth. Are you kidding me? And they've given up the third most second half points in the National Football League. And it was the second most of Kansas City head really, I don't think they've been so far ahead. I think there's been a lot of close games that mostly the real twelve pulls out. So to me Aaron Rodgers is getting no respect from Las Vegas. Because when I look at the receivers I can make a case that Aaron Rogers says at least as good a receiving cores Tom Brady does especially if gronk is in and out of the lineup. Jimmy grams been pretty good. He's he's been more productive than gronk as far as availability. Go. Yes. Yes. I give you that. Devante atoms. My god. He's a big time number one receiver. He's looking like a Pro Bowl player to me because he's averaging twelve yards a catch on forty. Catches guests who Brady's top receiver is so far. It's little James white. So devante Adams has forty seven catches James white has forty five catches and he's only averaging eight yards a catch because he's just dinkum done. Right. But he moves the chain definitely extension of their running game. But skip look about it. Green Bay's lost on the road to Washington in Detroit. And I don't think they. Respects, Washington in Detroit like they respect the Rams rightfully so. Because they got to MVP this, right? Not girlies worst case. No matter how good you think a Pat Mahomes, and you drew Brees has played Todd Gurley is in that discussion for MVP Jared Goff might be a little ways down. But he's in the discussion because they're seven. No, he's the quarterback. He's played well but Todd Gurley. So look at what Aaron has to the opposition that he knows that Rogers knows that he goes into a game. If I don't go thirty we're going to lose. That's awful lot. That's awful. That's awful. Burn to have to bear game on Brady bears every game. His defense is horrendously bad. Did you see the Super Bowl? Remember the Super Bowl? Remember what happened gets Blake Bortles at Jacksonville? Remember what happened against Matt? Stafford at Detroit. Remember, those games that it was just bombs away against genius Bill checks defend what you to is that. That one game in Brady play. Unbelievable. He had the costly turnover. But do you think Brady played well against Detroit in Detroit. Do you think he played well against Jacksonville in Jacksonville? He ban some culpability. He did turn the ball over yet. Would you believe that Tom Brady not having quite the year? He had a year ago when he was the MVP the league he's still seventh over all in QB arts Seventy-three scale zero to one hundred seventy three's. It's pretty decent Aaron Rodgers the most overrated quarterback because of you know, there's on this show. He's he's at fifty three. That's only three points above average. What about that ranks twentieth? What about touchdown session twelve to one? But again when you factor in windy, throw them and what mistakes do you make? And what do you do with your legs? It's fifty three. That's just barely again. Twentieth. In the league is Aaron Ron, but we know Las Vegas saying he ain't all that skew what we know QBR skewed because we've seen guys. Throw to innocent and opposing guy throws. None and has three hundred yard passer qb yards Lord than the got it through two times. But mostly it's very accurate. Okay. Accurate. But look at Tom thirteen what do they have thirteen fourteen. Fifteen sixteen sixteen down to seven sixteen seven Rogers. What twelve to one? Okay. Give me that. But how about the records three two and one for Green Bay but five and two, and they know what Tom Brady has to keep overcoming because a bad defense. Mason crossbar, which is the name crossbar 'cause like somebody you remember he doing four of them skip Bayless and the PAT Andy shaped one against Minnesota eating. That's two more wins. Put those two wins and era column name guess what? We're having a different errands been stinking. It up though, do that. Hey, we'll take it. Do that. Hey it. Thanks, get fumbles sack. Fumble. What about Tom every once in a while? But not that often mumble maybe the other night against Kansas City. Yeah. Who won that game? They want Tom Brady threw for one hundred eighty two in the fourth quarter in that game. That's just outrageously great. It's inexplicably grade. Will it just do this? I don't do it. He did it. I'm just repeating. What he did all I'm saying is that you make it seem like coach Bela. Check you try to what you try to do is marginalize minimize impact. He is. He's lost his fastball. Offense has not for the last two years. I just don't see it. I show me when Elton win the need to make plays against Jacksonville in that championship game. Yeah. They gave up three points on the very first possession. Become what happened with the field? Then they kicked a field goals like breathe into the fourth quarter. Proud of that in the. Most many football games championship game Zuber bowl. How many points had that defense allow? What happened gin in the fourth quarter of the Jacksonville game? Is that Tom Brady threw for one hundred thirty eight against the best defense in pro football and control the clock and the football and played keep away from the Jacksonville offense. Don't so it didn't have time to do the damage that it had to do up twenty to ten early in the fourth. I'm just telling infants quality not how much backs guy. I'm not not how much of it. Do I have the what did I do when I did have if that was the question of even though Tom was doing what he was doing in football. They don't play make it take it like, we do it. The black math you keep the ball. Ball. You score. You got to kick off your betas, so blade horrible. I mean, Blake Bortles with getting bang on the field. The same. Blake horrible threw for three seventy three bell chicks defense in week two of this year. The on guy you're talking to got bit for Cody Kessler third quarter of last week. Then worse fellowship that guy. That's the guy the guy we talked about the Rams say, we know what the problem, but you know, Jalen, you said it now you said everybody else quarterback with Trang say oh Blake. We got a good. No. You don't you got what you call everybody else. A quarterback other than Brady and. Roger, but that's not their skill. You know, what is here and not there is that Aaron Rodgers got devante Jimmy Graham and dramas now healthy again Randall call Josh. Line my question. Okay. Okay. You love you love doing. This has the most upside devante, Josh gourd. I'm going to quote, great, Shannon Sharpe. The pro football Famer Josh Gordon last Sunday looked like he was running with a piano on his back. He his back disqualify disqualified your own argument. But did he catch them doing errands receivers? Look like they have PNO's on their back. I don't think so the last time round carbon Geronimo Alison play. We'll. Are you playing this week? Randall Cobb he's playing he practice yesterday did them about we go. Well, I'm just. By Rabakov, and guess what what the spread open at eight and a half. And the the betting public is riding the Rams and it got up to nine and a half. Geronimo exactly Todd Gurley is on a historic pace. Okay. I mean, he I mean come on skip throwing league here. The guy that has what team fifteen touchdowns already them in games. He's on a pace to eclipse LT's thirty one total touchdowns MVP. You gotta factor. That fact at all that oh, do they? Yeah. Oh, I thought you meant the Cowboys. Oh patriots. We're gonna win this week. The cowboy we're planning to buy out about we got the by this. Yeah. I guarantee that QBR be like fifty no Dak to like seven touchdown passes yesterday against air to Amari Cooper air exam. That's what I'm saying. You probably. Yeah. Okay. We we we talk about Amar you'll guy. Everytime. Score the touchdown. You'll be saying Amari. Listen to that song last night Dean Martin. Dean martin. Since the Cowboys are in the by. They have been able to good use to their newest member Marin Cooper practice for the first time with his new team yesterday the three and four Cowboys needed a number one wide receiver deck Prescott said yesterday quote. This isn't the magic pill one player isn't going to make all these errors that we've had it go away. But Cooper was a little more optimistic when talking about his new team. Let's take a listen. I think a lot of play making a -bility. Stretch to defend all those things about I'll either until you guys to see a fresh start. This is a good team. Just giving them something to build on. I guess you can say. This America's team who wouldn't be excited. I know skip like that. But shannon. What do you make of the quotes? You just heard from those guys. Both both Dallas Dak Amari or saying the right things we're excited to have this guy got to play make our red. Or Jason Gary said, he's a cornerstone player Amari saying, it's great to be here. America's team also great to be wanted. And and that is true. You want to be wanted. It hurt his pride. You the fourth pick in the draft from four years ago halfway through your four season. Coach says, nah, we're better without you that has to do something to your pride. But skip it. Here's the problem is that why Dak says he's not a magic pill. Actually, that's not what the fans thing. That's not what the cowboy for an office thing because they believe that this guy is the guy that can put us over the hump to get up to win the NFC east. What you believe they're going to do and with that becomes a lot of responsibility. A lot of expectation will be placed on this young man showed him because if it doesn't pan out. Like, okay, they start looking at Gerry sideways, because you know, you wanted Jerry do it, Jerry. Do it gear. You lock your stomach Jimmy. I don't even speak in east. All my you know, what I should just take the rest of the day off now for some. I don't think. So if I'm the cowboy fans, I'm concerned because with Khalil Mack situation was different skipped. Okay. John. We'll Khalil didn't show up Cam. He didn't want to be here. So we move. Mark hoople was day every day code grin have an opportunity to see him working practice every day. He had an opportunity and work in the game. And for some reason code Gruden wanted to move on. Now do does Amari Cooper have big play capability. The have the ability to break the game wide open. Sure. Absolutely. His ability has never been questioned. It's the consistency. That's been questioned in since Mark Cooper's been into the league because we'll see him have games at one forty in the next game fifteen yards have a game of one eighteen when twenty and then you have three catches for twenty seven yards. So is not his ability. That's going to be questioned the consistency. What is he going to give you game in and game out that what the Dallas Cowboys fans are expected? And I know you sitting over there, you hope it you just hope you don't get Amari Cooper of this year. And you get the alarm of the first blow years. You take a day off in your like a mind reader. Notes stealing from me. I don't know. I can't read that myth. All I know is that I was dozing off over here. Listening to your lifeless unintended monotone delivery. You gotta have some energy. When you talk about a Mari Cooper to America's team. Oh, you excited the Miami excited every night. I get more excited because the more. I think about it the more I love this. They just went out and got a two time pro bowler who's all of twenty four years of age. And he is completely healthy. He wasn't concussion protocol. But he says he's completely out of that. But he's had no needs no shoulders. No achilles. No, no. He is just good to go. And I have talked to him. I had one session with him on the other network, and I found him to be a really bright young man and a quick study. And I think he would just pick up this cowboy offense lickety-split and now perfectly ri-. Right on schedule. They do have a BI week. What a great time to go acquire the missing link. Go get him. So that you can at least have some extra practice. It wasn't a deck. That said he's not what did you say? We pulled that quote a little bit out of context because the story that I read I believe it's the Dallas Morning News. The early quotes the higher quotes are Dak was talking about how excited the whole football team is and I'm gonna use one quote out of there guys on defense or excited. The DB's are excited the defense a bat out of Karen you. Okay. So the point is that that's what I tried to tell you finally Jerry Jones actually woke up and did something. Okay. Again. Did he plunge? Yes. Did he overpay for America? Yes. He did. I said I give a fourth round or he gave a first where the eagles poised to give a second. They offered a second with Redskins going to get in the the bidding war. Yes. They were. So he just closed the deal. And I say thank you, Jerry Jones. Because he sent a message to a locker room that is struggling because to your point. The defense is second points allowed there hanging in there hanging in the offense can't close deals on the road Owen floor on the road. But if you have a playmaker, you have a real live Pro Bowl number one receiver whose athletic. He's a glider. He's got that easy. Deep speed. He can run by people before they even know it he'll run past you. Okay. So the whole locker room according to Dak is excited. And he also went on to say that after watching him get into throw to on the practice field again against air seven on seven. He said some of the things he does just jump out. We'll obviously they do because he's got this collection of number three's. Alan Hearns Deontay. Thompson you're out there. He's the best route round decks never thrown bought by far and Dez didn't run rally. Right. And again Dax it it's like getting a new toy. So then he tried to temper all this. Saying, hey, hold on. This is later in the interview forty thousand this isn't a magic pill. One player isn't gonna make all these airs that we've been making go away. He's not he the one guy is going to keep that from fumbling at the goal line. If he gets careless with the anyway, so the quarterback is taking a little pressure off Amari and saying well, put it back on me because I made a trade for him in the middle of the season. So these tell you anytime you make a trade that guy autumn at you saying he's got he's the piece, but let me ask you this. You say Mark comes and he doesn't have any need. No, hip, no shoulder. No injury that can cudgeon protocol while the inconsistency. I can't explain it. I don't know. Did he again two years big time when you're a rookie in the NFL and you make the Pro Bowl is that not pretty great. Did you make the Pro Bowl? You know, you did. The team. Okay. So he made the Pro Bowl and then he slipped. Humane approach. He made the Pro Bowl he slipped in his third year. And then he really slipped this year. He had a couple of hundred yards gang one hundred yard games. But you failed to point out that there was a store your off yesterday. But there was a story out of Oakland that he had asked out. So it wasn't like he was happy in they dumped him. Although I think Jon Gruden was out on him because of his inconsistency. And I told you he's not your typical alpha male diva receiver he's not in your face. He's a quiet guy. He plays sort of quietly. His body language is not loud. And I think Jon Gruden said, well, I need every down intensity. And I don't see it from eighty nine and he wants to start over with his guys Khalil Mack. I don't think he saw every down intensity from Khalil Mack. And he said I can do better than that. Kenny. Well, that's highly debatable probably highly doubtful. But he said I can do better than Khalil Mack or Amari Cooper. And I think he's about to say I can do better than that quarterback that he has been out on the quarterback. All right. You have. I give you that. But the thing is is that one thing that coach gruden's going to have to understand you can't coach every player the exact same way. Some guys you can yell at skip. And they can roll it off. And they go do their job. Some guys will shut you out. Some guys will become confrontational with you. They will. So coach grew is under the the old school, you know, coach Landry coat there. But I mean, they were hard their grandeur they ground everybody. But in today's game these players are different now. I know, and listen, I know John and he's about five nine he's got a little Napoleon to get up face of guys who were like a foot taller. He coaches har-. Yes, any coaches profane Lii, and he coaches to get under your skin into push your deepest button in some buttons cannot be reached that way. Yes. As you know, you absolutely, right. I don't know. But he's going to have to go find the guys who will respond to that kind of coaching. Is it is it too old? School is not new school enough. I'll tell you what's you can't keep giving away your best players. I agree. I some point time that comes up because think about what you just hopes that when you draft especially this 'cause Khalil Mack. I think with the fourth pick Amari Cooper was the fourth THEO when you drive this like man, I hope we got a guy for ten years. This guy can play will Khalil Mack. No could play. He's defensive player of the year. I are to probe. Okay. I'm with you. But if you have five number one picks in the next two years, you could wind up with the number one overall pick you could trade for it. So you could go to the top and start over skip. I'm always my grandma used always say the devil. You know is better than the one. You don't I know what I had with Khalil Mack. You don't know what you're gonna get we need prospects. You don't they might turn out to be one of them might be clear might he might be even better than Khalil Mack. You might have the next Carson Wentz Jared Goff at the quarterback with this. Or you might get the next franchise left old Lyme defensive line with or something you'd never know. My new from Khalil Mack. I'm gonna get me double digit sacks. I'm gonna get me in the all pro Pro Bowl player. That's what I know. I had with him. Okay. So I like to of the things that are Mari said about Dak and America's what he's they Amari said. I really liked the way Dak throws the ball. It's a good ball meaning to cast about their car. I don't know what he said you say the more important point is did desk Brian ever say that about Dax ball easy to catch. I never heard that he would drop them anyway. Okay. He was dropping them anyway. But he never seen to love them. And they never seem to get on any same page. So this is a good start. When when the new receiver the number one says I really liked what symbols are easy to catch. John's balls always looked hard to catch me because he just threw too hard but skill. Here's the thing. What did they say that when Tony Romo was working his way back? There says he looked like the same Tony Romo even when he had thrown in the ball. That was the starter. He's talking about how good Tony Romo running the scout team running or just throwing against air. That's what dad was doing. Because Dan's new Tony Romo was gonna put the ball up. No matter what. And that they had code that to get away from them. We're better. We don't have to force the ball. We can run the ball in his not there don't force. It will they took Zeke away in that had to go against what he had been earlier force the ball. He like see what is getting me. Y'all got me down got channel shot gave me a punking gray. Because I might here today double coverage because you say he can go up and get a he that Atlantic will maybe he used to be with Tony Romo. He he's not that way with me. And I'm looking horrible throwing them to put I agree with that. So the final non diva quote from Amari Cooper was and I'll read it again. I bring a lot of playmaking ability. I can stretch the defense. But then there's a, but this all those things I will leave that for you guys to see how many Viva number one receivers would would make a statement like that. Because he just finally said, I don't wanna talk about me. Let me just go show. Hold on. Are you asking me about me or you haven't? Oh, you asked me about somebody else. 'cause you asked me about me. I'm gonna talk about me. Well, wait, we know that we really what am I little merica knows not about both of those will you're a diva tied in genie. I believe in spirit was conspicuous consumption. If you haven't you flaunt it. Yeah. I'm good. We noticed you want. You know, girl building girl the have knife bigger than guy that have knife, mud up. Look at for weather. Got bundles of money up there, you flaunt guilt Bela's so far down you let him now. He's he's not that dog not built that way. What would not not? Oh, what would not not? You wanna get on your team? That's not that don't I wanna guy who just does it. No, no. You told me you like cold, bud Mathis, Lou. Michael, jordan. That's why you look Kobe Bryant FAFSA. Lebron James doesn't have that a fasten. I'm not quitting Amari Cooper. And the Michael Jordan. Would you like them dogs? Well, who doesn't like them? Don't are you. Are you know, he's just he just runs sweet routes you want around Rhode Island. I just wanna route runner I want somebody who just glides by the defense. Because all of a sudden my defense is excited. My offense line is excited Zeke is excited and the opposing defensive coordinator is not excited because he's second guessing himself saying, I don't know if we can just lock everybody up and press man and blitz every down run blitz. Like, you can't do that. Because you can't lock him down in single coverage. You just can't family. I guess you could read has got rhythm for some reason. Well, I mean, maybe he needed a fresh start to you did. What guy you notice doing what he's supposed to getting a fresh start? What guy, you know, death producing like he supposed to like the picking the draft two-time Pro Bowl player getting a fresh start somewhere else. You you got a fresh start right here, and you're producing that right rested. Jones got jokes. Okay. Not wanting to Joe that for you. That was the truth. Here. The Browns offense they have struggled big time and their overtime loss to the bus last week. He didn't score a point on offense until the third quarter. And then they couldn't get a first down in overtime loss prompted Hugh Jackson to say he will be more involved with the offense. Baker Mayfield responded to that yesterday. Let's hear what he said. I think a lot of things said postgame emotionally. But I think the thing around here is we don't need to reinvent the wheel to perfect are craft. You look at the good teams around the league they work hard at what they do. And they become very very good at it. We we have a we have we don't need to try and change too much. We just need to get better at what we're doing. There's there's no secret recipe for success. Besides working your ass off, Shannon. What are those comments tell you is saying that little mill reason, a panic breaker Mayfield started four games? Three of those games have been three point three of them's going to overtime. So what do we panicking for we're fine? I mean, we score forty points. We lose score. Twenty three to kick a field goal. We lose. What do we painting for the only game? They were blown out with the charges and beggars also saying subtly you leisure you had control off edge. Well, let's see before that you off. If you want to be we need you to stay right there where you are good humor. But you understand skip. Give skip the he was like, whoa. Don't wait a minute. If I don't I need to have some because I believe it's gonna take somewhere between eight nine games to keep this job and say, you know, what if I'm gonna go down. Let me go down, you know, with my hands on the wheel. Yeah. Somebody control them my own. Yeah. But I agree with Baker. What what do we what do we panicking for the last appeal because we got the ball, first and overtime things. Just didn't go out way. Raiders. I mean, look shouldn't even got the overtime. Because that was that was a. Derek Carr foam of the ball to gas group. Did it should have been a touchdown. And the Browns should've won this gate. So agree with Baker Mayfield. I don't agree with Baker very often. But in this situation, I do there's no reason to panic. They're not getting blown out the games close. You you doing a good job overseeing the team? Yeah. Let Todd Haley continue to do what he's doing. Do. You realize what a powerful statement? You just said and Baker just said between the lines of what he was saying. He said, no he this between the lines. He saying no you just keep doing what you do. Because the guy who's call my places doing just fun. That's powerful. That's that's really drawing a line because I'm pretty sure Baker is closer to the new GM John Dorsey than he is to the old head coach Hugh Jackson. And I'm pretty sure that John Dorsey has dropped a hint or two that maybe we'll go in a different direction at some point at head coach in I think that's coming. And I think Hugh is flailing and fighting always supported you. But I didn't love the way he in my view mishandled the quarterback competition during training camp that was for all view on hard knocks and all of a sudden he had to star coordinators Greg Williams, Todd Haley, who are sort of taking over hard been hit code all head coaches. You don't think you're threatened and now, Hugh when he grabs the Mike he's he's trying to seize the day. This is my football team. And I'm in charge, and I have the land. I have final say on everything. And now he's indicating he's going to take back over the offense. I don't think it would be a good idea. For the reasons you just said, although Hughes had stints as ordination Cincinnati at USC where good at Oakland. Yeah. He was a head coach. But here's the thing goes skip. What Baker saying is being be patient? Baker have that luxury bakes have the fully guaranteed contract. We know he's going to be there for at least four years. They're probably going to pick up his option. Guess who doesn't have another four years to be patient? Hugh jackson. Hugh Jackson said I need to get wins. This closeness does not count. This is not a grenade thrown horseshoes or I'm not slow dancing in the eighth grade. Closeness has nothing to do with whether or not I'm going to be able to hold onto this job. So I get what Baker I agree with Baker, Hugh. We we saw what you did when you had control one in thirty one lead. Todd Haley, keep this thing. But he was saying I can't be patient. My boss wants to see we if he wants to see we moved up to get you. We got talent around you defense playing defense you'll plan. The high levels. Now one game we saw against the charge. You like what happened to the deepens? But all in all they've been very solid. I get what you say. But Baker that fully righted this equation. How many times do you see a new GM come in and stick with the old head coach for for longevity? It just doesn't happen usually you'll give him a shot. And usually you're not quite on the same page, and you go a different direction. I want my guy dog house. Yeah. So I'm pretty sure John Dorsey will go in a new direction not during this year, but next year, and I feel bad for Hugh because he's a good football coach. He is not. Proven that much in Cleveland. And I hope he gets another shot somewhere else skim how many shots you want him to get. You know, what I think he's the classic. He's a better coordinator took the words. Took the words. My my something some guys are like that way Phillips way way with head coach buffalo head coach in Denver had go to Dallas. I don't think he was head coach in San Diego. But he had a lot of different places, but he's a better defensive coordinator. And maybe that's the same case with north Turner. Maybe no of Turner is just a better OSI, they need eight see, no doubt. And that's okay. And that is also the case with the current Dallas cowboy head coach the eight eight eight Jason Darren day at own team to be whatever you want to be quotes around. Oh, Jason Gary Joan. He is no he is another son to a fault. You gotta get him about it. Yeah. He was trying to cut into the air. I. Thanks for listening to the undisputed podcast. I'm Jenny Taft. Don't again at nine thirty AM eastern on Monday for another week of undisputed. We'll see that.

Full Show (LeBron's Lakers, Rodgers an underdog, Dak on Amari Cooper, Baker Mayfield)

"Welcome to the undisputed podcast. I'm your host. Johnny taft. This podcast is the full show. From today's episode of undisputed from start to finish. They've got a busy slate. So skip Shannon. Let's get to it. Welcome to undisputed lie for me. I'm Jenny tapped here with skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe's back. Good morning. We will sit what the celebration what where's the the hin in? We'll celebrate the gummy bears it'll be here tomorrow where we run through the nuggets we're knocking mile. Well, what championship days are here. Again. It's time for the parade. It'll be tomato. Yeah. So you won't put them do that. I do. I'll think about. Warning. We don't think this which idea you have to you watching seats seats. He doesn't miss any real by Irv my whole team. It was a week who. It was a one deal. Oh, told you also you've been talking about it. To know what you capable. So today, I don't have any bias. I am right in the middle the middle right in the middle. We have lots today. Shannon's guy Aaron Rodgers a huge underdog on Sunday. And then skip sorry, but your Cowboys. Their offense has struggled wool mart, Cooper, fix everything. We are going to start with what's just brought up. Well, lebron. And the Lakers said last night they desperately needed a win. After starting the season o and three and they showed a big in. Phoenix bronze scored nineteen points at Tennessee's he didn't need to play in the fourth quarter and total seven Laker scored in double digits in the blow at win after the game. Lebron talked about Elliot's first win of the season. Let's hear what he had to say. Great to win period. But it's feels good for us to know where we've been doing over the training camp. And he's I games. Continue to get better tonight. And we want to continue that going to have a group that goes out game. Like that. Back here and get started. I'll look forward to the challenge, Shannon. They needed the win. How impressive where the Lakers last night took a whole lot of this isn't a very good basketball team. They showed that they got good players Booker and de'andre eight looks like he's going to be the real deal. But this is not a very good team. So I didn't take a whole lot out of it. I think there are still issues that remain for the Lakers outside shooting defense. Needs new still needs improving skip, and they have no death that Senate position javale McGee gets in trouble. Or he gets winded needs a blow. They have no depth that that position. But they got out and ran a like the thirty four six eight turnovers. That's very good. They had a stretch where they went thirty four consecutive minutes without a turnover. Lebron had Tennessee zero turnovers. That's good. He's still not shooting the ball as well. As I know he's going to shoot it. He's been abysmal from three point land. Josh Hart was finally inserted into the starting lineup. I think I called that on Mondays give that that's what we're going to see why not the second year player who's getting better. And better why not let him get those minutes that a call. We'll put was occupied. Who's I like some of the things that I saw, but at the end of the day scale, we know they're going to be able to score. We know they're gonna push the pace. They got guys every guy for the most part can handle the ball. They can get the ball at the court. So you don't necessarily have to have a designate. Agai bringing the ball of the court who can bring it up in the Bronx bringing up Stevenson Lonzo ball, Josh art, all their can literally bring the ball up the court. So you don't have to have one guy says, okay, I gotta get the ball to him in order to push the pace. So we saw that last night guy were just getting the ball ahead making some great played javale McGee. We know what he's going to. He's going to give you great every single hustle. Block the shot on one in hustles down the court. Lebron about that thing to make him. Look real good. What you do Boeing good veiled you bail? But he's capable. Yeah. He's capable of a lot of things. Yeah. So far he's kept those on a limited basis, but they about fifty two percent from the Floyd. Good ten to twenty eight. I mean, you can live with thirty five thirty six percent from the three point line. The Brown with perfect from the free throw line night to see that with you. You know, those two that hit last night. Well skin talking today. Knicks anything did this get close neared. No, no. No, no. That's why it'll take a whole lot of it. But there's some things that Luke won't can build on. They talked about how he was upset earlier today about the defense. And that's going to be a thing moving. I tell you what we'll find out if that message resonated lukewarm gave them about the defense van because it's calm and another can hang one forty on your blink of that. Lebron one for five from three I'm losing track. What is he like four? Four four percent is that that's that's pretty presentative. So wait, Lonzo ball shoot and forty one percent three. And what is LeBron? I can't even do the math gives us. How many out Steve say four games into the season for we have we have seventy eight more games to go. So he was in Italy. Then he was in France. And he was in Germany, then he was in China. He wouldn't practices through toil. You gotta practice the older you get the more. You have to work at it. That's just thought thought for the day. Right. So my takeaways from last night, we're pretty different than yours. First of all, I'm gonna say it again. This is the most fun team to watch on offense in all Abascal ball. I just sit back. I am wildly entertained because they push it like mad. They do. And we've been talking about that points in the paint statistic. They are now averaging just four games, but still four games seventy one points a game in points in the paint. Again last year. No team the whole year had more than sixty eight points in the paint and the leader last year was the New Orleans pelicans. They averaged fifty two point four points per per paint at points in the paint per game. Okay. So seventy-one versus fifty to seventy one just crushing. What was happening last year? Right. Why is that push it push it push it some of it's because jail some your LeBron passes or getting people. Open for layups. But they're just push it. They're out running the defense. They're getting open pass to the basket on fast break. So they're scoring at the basket at will. And I love to watch that because it's fun. It's it's like globetrotter. You know, it's it's like LeBron is metal arc lemon orchestrating this run-and-shoot extravaganza. It's just fun to watch. And I think they will continue to get more and more fun to watch on the offensive end again land Stevenson said that last night that Luke had just torn into them in pre-game session, and that they responded, and I thought they played hard especially in the first half on defense before it became a blowout. I saw effort that. I have not seen just told me earlier. It was Phoenix. Well, it was okay. And yet I'm still gonna say I'm gonna hang in there. This team is a little better than I thought it was going to be. I don't know how you feel. You're down on them. Chris broussard's been down on him. Was he feels later in the show, but I'm a little up on them. And because they're a little better than I thought. But so is Denver as you point out. And so are the pelicans as I've pointed out and for that matter, so a Sacramento Sacramento had a huge win the other night and Oklahoma City. They're not bad. They're a team capable of beating the Lakers a couple of times this year and to your point thinks has talent. But Phoenix probably gonna finish at the bottom of the wet. It'd be the the number one pick a guy. All right. They're going to get the number one pick. And by the way, they're guy last night to your point had what twenty twenty two twenty two and eleven. Wow. That's the eight remember four March madness. We had to make our picks. I'm terrible at picking. And I said, well, he's by far the most dominant player in college basketball. I think I'll take Arezzo what happens they play buffalo in the first game. And they lose eighty nine to sixty eight because buffalo makes fifteen of thirty three's. And it's madness. It's why they call it madness. That's de'andre Ayton who was dominant last night in a losing cause. But still that's college basketball. But that's what goes to show you skip. Okay. You say the lake of average and seventy one points in the pan. That's a must when you don't shoot well from the perimeter and see as you mentioned the Andrea eight and dominated the paint in college. But when team lights you up from the outside with fifteen threes. This is what happened. So this is what the Lakers are going to have to guard against left there in the seventy points that eighty points points in the paint paint because they don't shoot where from the outside is going to be a struggle because of a team can get get not even get hot. They shoot thirteen make thirteen somewhere between thirteen and seventeen threes right now, we haven't seen the Lakers be able to match that. So they're going to have to dominate the points in the paint for the simple fact, they don't shoot the ball, particularly well from the outside, and then when you don't shoot the ball wealth from the outside things, go bad for you in a hurry, and you get blown out. So this is what they're going to have to push the pace they're going to have to get easy baskets because in the half court sets get they're not shooting well from outside. Okay. Seventy six points just in the first half albeit against Phoenix. But that's that's some firepower. Now. That's that's impressive. So the other shock in the night to me was and I tweeted about this. I never thought I would see the night when land Stevenson came in and carried LeBron James team because I never could see them in the same sentence to start with and land Stevenson saved the night. And carried the night he came in. And they were struggling they were down one when he came in mid first quarter. I don't know if you watch this carefully. Laid Stevenson came off the bench ignited, the Los Angeles Lakers when LeBron was just okay, he didn't have like high energy intensity. And Lance goes for played eleven straight minutes. This is mid first quarter into the second quarter in an eleven minutes. He scores twelve points with four rebounds, and six assists and a steal. Those are some staggering numbers put up coming off the bench, and he goes down one. And then when he leaves their up five and they're on the way to blowing them out seventy six first half. What one would you know what you can give him skip? But that's that's a pretty valuable that was game changing less. He's highly capable. We saw some performances like this in the playoff is the antics that takes away because he can be a really good player from time to time. All right. Remember they're the couple of times last maybe two years ago he had like five or six triple doubles at in the first half of the season. So we know he's capable of playing. He was a starter on those team for Indiana that was getting to Eastern Conference finals. But if the antiques that comes along with him from blowing into the air and doing all this. But you know, he go. Pick the guitar. He do he goes star. Hot dogging that New York games. Give have himself antics on Lance's, part and antics on jails part and Rondos got his own set of. In spitting anti and Michael Beasley has antics going on because he didn't play a lick last night. I don't know. I don't know. What was going on is either doghouse already or were they just keeping them fresh for tonight? Doing pop of why maybe for the nuggets, maybe he's going to be he'll play the Lance role tonight. Our about keeping play fresh. I worry about keeping my fruit fresh fruit he needs to play because he hadn't played. Well, we give me the opportunity to play. But all hands on deck tonight. We'll find out a lot more about the Lakers tonight. Because you have a team that skill take somebody nuggets. Oh, they'll go up and down with you because they feel they feel they can match you point for point. But what they can do that the lake of can't they can hit threes. And they got a big guy in the middle Yokich. He ain't to be played with. So javale got his hand the night jail continues to dominate defense. I don't use that word that often, but he dominates on defense because he had four more blocks lasts more blocks like the first quarter. So he's third in the league in blocks. And it feels like he continued to be third regen blocks the whole year and he's playing hard. He plays a little goofy occasionally. But again, I didn't see that coming. I didn't know it could be that domino. Was he might lead league in scoring because right now, they can't stop anybody from getting into the paint. And so he's going to the last line of defense. So he can easily average four blocks the game, and he's going to need to average those kind of blocked per night. And he's averaging at least four changed shot game because he is really bothering people would I wish when he's challenging everything. I wish other guys would get down there and try to box the guy because he's challenging a shot. The guy got past them. And now his guys grabbing the rebound dunking and everybody's looking around like what happened Japan? Give me a hand. I challenge your guys shot at least get back in position to try to keep my guy off the glass Puzo. You don't make me look bad role. Would look you know, what you're gonna get with the guy. He's going to give tremendous effort on all on both ends, especially the defensive. He's not really you don't really run play for a hate that he hit that three point shot last night. Now, all of a sudden you're going to be thinking he Steph curry, we'll talk about Steph curry a little late in the are. But he can be I'm surprised he's playing as many minutes and he's playing we've never seen him play. You know, he's about three minutes here. Two minutes there at the internet. You look up. He's played sixty minutes averaging in the twenty minutes twenty two twenty three minutes. So that's a good sign. But again once he gets in trouble. He gives winded you go into Kouzmin coups from of that plan to five you won't guard yoga. What about zoo Bach love soo-bok? He was the only zoo. But I remember it's four you remember the vase the pants that have. Yeah. They went away. Zu zu bop zoo. Baas put him on the shelf. So javale McGee believe it or not leads the Lakers in defensive individual wind shares at seventy fourth in the league. Lebron's valley is seventy four that's his highs. Any Lakers lamb implant any default? We're in Lonzo. Lebron? He's too. Sixteen against what at one point time. He was three busy eight us talking about it. I told you he coming down till sixty nine he talks, we got a we got a case the new that he will be under two hundred. We do not do. Do we have a case tonight on the makes up that everyone have account in the fly? And he thinks he's in. And we got a eighty percent as we do have native resent. Visu neighbors. But Lonzo ball believe it or not is forty one percent from three that's my guy and he's nine of twenty two in. So it's possible. He's on on a path right now to lead the league in three point shooting and lead the league in three point airballs because every night shoots at least. It'd be fair. Mark. Earmark or you're gonna miss everything you ever see thing though for though, he shoots to night airballs. Everything where he's not ready, and he's not he doesn't have conviction of like shoot. I. Oh, I'll go ahead and try it like MRs three feet to the right or he just rips it when he steps into it. It's usually pretty good. I still believe the Lakers going to make a move for shooter. Get shoot up ain't going to be in business. They played how you made my Michaela Michaela. They've laid him. He had a three last night's coins. V. The play. No D. No, he didn't play. But. The perfect team heat about jail, which avail McGee go play. Yeah. Yeah. Well, so they're going to get called Korver is that what you know. I believe they would be better served with they shoot at some point time skipping. Some point teams are not going to let you get feminine point Amherst seventy points tonight in the paint because those are easy buckets. And I get it the getting the ball up the rim, and as I'm saying at a said, they have so many guys that can push it. You don't have to have a designated guide. Their teams you need a designated guy because you don't have four or five guys that can bring the ball up the court and in the heat offense. That's what the Lakers have. But at some point you got to take something away. All good teams will less pack this lane. Let's make sure we get back on. So they don't get the layup. They don't get the dunks. And then let's get them in the half courts there. Let's who can make shot fifteen in them and see what happens. So the Denver Nuggets are now second defensive efficiency, and they did beat Golden State one hundred to ninety eight so they held Golden State under a hundred points. That's pretty great. Unbought but abetted in great. So you actually did offer me a case of diet mountain dew on this game tonight. Okay. You want? It. You won't do you want it? I mean, I've been trying to protect you from your saddle won't over from your cell won't protection. But the more I think about it you really gonna gimme another case. This what I want you to do we out in the Seren gateway. And they're the lions, Dan, I want you to put me out and drive off. Really? Yeah. That's what I want you to do. You'll get eat. No, just fine. Well, come back. I'll be laying on one on back propped up. Hand to hand like barely go be laying out to about know, how to tell you and not talk you into this bit right here. Do you won't it? Yes. Or no. Every time you propose the bed. You tend to lose. Do you want the bit? Do you want the Staples tonight ball case to do if they simple? Yes. Or simple note, or I'm scared 'cause I don't want you to get down under double figure into cases ten okay, though. If when you bet me you'll be down to nine. Do you want it? I college is to America. I accept the bet. I'm sorry. I apologize to you. I Pol Jenny. I I'm sorry. But I accept the bet LeBron of the night. Yeah. A mys- it maybe he was saving himself last night. Really should have won every night. You should average. I don't know about the rebounds. He's dog her on the boards, juvenile rebound. Okay. Hollow many the last night? He has seven's. Jim he should have ten or eleven eighty eight minutes and six nine he played twenty come on. I mean, I mean, Lance Lance had had a jail. What did you Lonzo had six? Lonzo always has six. But you can see letting the Brian is bumming dude is averaging twenty seven eight. I said thirty to ten and ten and that's not even about every thirty a kick it into gear, maybe you will tonight. But I don't think. He may he'll keep you gearing. It won't be enough Denver's pretty good. That's why I wanted to get this bed because this go and tell me a lot more about the Lakers than what I saw last night against sons tells me a lot about you. But that's okay. Okay. Okay. So you use the youth? Thank you Khanna. So you thought by me saying, you know, when you said aid has gloves. They started out with ten and then he kept bragging for Yuki bragging about how good the nuggets are. And I'm sorry, America. I don't wanna do this. But don't ju started it. Yeah. Okay. I'll be celebrating the ball. When you asked me where all my. Yeah. That'd be right. Hit a ball. You're like you're just like two week without your pro. You need your prob. They're like Samson's hair. But if I would have brought if I'm celebrated data it you celebrating. Yeah. Really? You're highly capable celebrates. It's kind of all you've got. But I'll tell you what I would. I am. We'll be celebrating against enoug- it. All right. All right, good. So you don't have to ask they'll be here. It's done. It's over Dundee. Okay. I apologize for. I don't know. How I feel about confidence. Vise might be. Let's skip on this one. I'm a little worried for you. Go to. Go-to guiding oncoming. Will you be celebrating? No on Sunday because your guy Aaron Rodgers is a huge underdog. We'll discuss that. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have a tough hill to climb Sunday here now lay against the Rams on FOX. They're nine and a half point underdog, which is the highest point spread against Roger since he's been the Packers starter. He's facing a Rams team. It's a perfect seven. Oh, one averaging nearly thirty four points a game, Shannon. What does the point spread tell you until the biggest has a lot of respect the ultimate routes with the the Rams. They're very good football team offensively as you mentioned the average and thirty four points a game almost and it tells me that the Vegas looks at Green Bay, although they have transcendent quarterback. There are very flaw team. They give twenty nine at least twenty nine points and four their five game. They watch C J Beth or just the other night car of them up and CJ breath. It is an okay quarterback. But he's not Jerry golf. The forty nine is offense does not possess. What the Rams possessed Todd Gurley. Cooks Cup, Jerry golf. So this is what? But it also should be an indictment to the Green Bay front office because you've done a very poor job of surrounding transcended player with weapons not on the opposite side because everybody automatically assumed what when you have transcended player use around him with offensive talent. No. But you better get somebody that can stop the opposing team and don't force him to every game have to go out and scored thirty five points in order to win. And that's what they've done. You look at the Green Bay's defense. It says Green Bay yo y'all not very good. And it's putting a lot of pressure on your quarterback. And he's Mick Vega. Tales meet it, they believe Aaron Rodgers steal a little nit. That's what it tells me. He's gonna take his brace off. What he's saying? When I see it. I believe it. Well, that's what he said. I don't care what he's faced betas. I see better not hear people say a lot of things you seem run that four to forty right up the gutter he ran for two forty pin yards. Yeah. So you are. And also in our to know what he's gonna go on Brady has never been a nine point. But when Tom Brady able going into a game with someone said, you know, what their coach is better than coach Jake might McCarthy's going into this game. Not hopefully there there's a general manager you say, okay. What would you rather have Mike McCarthy? Sean McVay right now, how many general manager of thirty two will say they would take Mike mccarville, Sean McVeigh. So there's a lot of indictment to go around. But what this mainly tells me about Vegas who does these kinds of things for living that they have the ultimate spec for the Rams, and they don't have a whole lot of respect for the Packers. They have respect for Aaron Rodgers say, bro defence. Buying it. You know, it's funny. I hadn't planned to bring up Tom Brady. Bring it up. That's a great idea. I like that. Because that frames at all Eureka. I see it now comes clear to me the oddsmakers are just saying what I've been saying all along that Aaron Rodgers is. No Tom Brady. Because obviously to your point if Tom Brady were going to the Rams this Sunday. What would he be? But maybe three point underdog aby be picking or Mike McCarthy probably be a thirteen point underdog. If he he got Bella chink, he got into coach ever walked this island. I'll really yes. So coach Bela chicks defense has given up the twenty fifth most yards in the NFL this year. Green Bay's only given up the eighth most yards. That's interesting too. Learn a little closer. It's fifteenth for Green Bay gathering based fifteenth in points allowed but twentieth for the genius Bill check twentieth. Are you kidding me? And they've given up the third most second half points in the National Football League. And it was the second most plans. So far. Hey, really, I don't think they've been so far ahead. I think there'd been a lot of close games that mostly the real twelve pulls out. So to me Aaron Rodgers is getting no respect from Las Vegas. Because when I look at the receivers, you know, I can make a case that Aaron Rogers says at least as good receiving cores. Tom Brady does especially if gronk is in and out of the lineup. Jimmy grams been pretty good. He's he's been more productive than gronk as far as Vale ability. Go. Yes, yes. I give you that. Devante atoms. God he he's a big time number one receiver. He's looking like a Pro Bowl player to me because he's averaging twelve yards a catch on forty seven catches guests who Brady's top receiver is so far. It's little James white. So devante Adams has forty seven catches James white has forty five catches and he's only averaging eight yards a catch because he's just dinkum down. But he moves the chain. Definitely. Extension of their running game. Skip look think about it. Green Bay's loft on the road to Washington in Detroit. And I don't think Vegas respects Washington in Detroit. They respect the Rams rightfully so. Because they got to MVP Cana this, right? Not girlies. At worst case. No matter how good you think a pet Mahomes. Drew Brees has played Todd Gurley is in that discussion for MVP Jared Goff might be a little ways down. But he's in the discussion because they're seven no he's the quarterback. He's played whale. But Todd Gurley. So look at what Aaron has to the opposition that he knows that Rogers knows that he goes into a game. If I don't go thirty we're going to lose. That's awful lot. That's awful. That's awful. Burn to have to bear game on Brady bears every game. His defense is horrendously bad. Did you see the Super Bowl? Remember the Super Bowl? Remember what happened gets Blake Bortles at Jacksonville? Remember? What happened Matt Stafford at Detroit. Remember, those games that it was just bombs away against genius Bill. Jax defend what you to is that that one game in Brady did play. Unbelievable. He had the costly over. But do you think Brady played well against Detroit in Detroit. Do you think he played well against Jacksonville in Jacksonville? He ban some culpability. He did turn the ball over yet. Would you believe that Tom Brady not having quite the year? He had a year ago when he was the VP of the league, he's still seventh over all in QBR at seventy three it scale zero to one hundred seventy three's. It's pretty decent Aaron Rodgers the most overrated quarterback do because a you know, there's on this show. He's he's at fifty three. That's only three points above average. What about that ranks twentieth? What about those down to one? But again when you factor in windy throw them in what mistakes do you make? And what do you do with your legs? It's fifty three. That's just barely. Again. Twentieth in the league is Aaron Rodgers. But we know Las Vegas saying, he ain't all that. Skew what we know QBR skewed because we've seen guys throw to innocent and opposing guy throws none and has three hundred yard passer qb yards lower than the got it through two times. But mostly it's very accurate. Okay. Accurate. But look at Tom thirteen fourteen fifteen touchdowns sixteen sixteen down to seven sixteen seven. Roger what twelve to one? Okay. Give me that how about the records three two and one for Green Bay but five and two, and they know what Tom Brady has to keep overcoming because bad defense. Mason crossbar, which is the name crawls Barton. 'cause like somebody you remember he don't boil them skip Bayless and the PAT any shape one against Minnesota. E that's two more wins. Put those two wins and era of column gifts what we're having a definite Aaron's been stinking. It up though, do that. Hey. Thanks, get fumbles sack fumbles. What about Tom every once in a while? But not that often Bob remember the other night against Kansas City who won that game. They want Tom Brady threw for one hundred eighty two in the fourth quarter in that game. That's just outrageously great. It's inexplicably. Great. Will it just do this? I don't do it. He did it. I'm just repeating. What he did all I'm saying is that you make it seem like coach Bela. Check you try to what you try to do is marginalized minimize coach impact. He is. He's lost his fastball. Offense has not for the last two years. I just don't see it. I show me. When helped me win the need to make plays against Jacksonville in that championship game. Yeah. They gave up three point on the very first possession. Because what happened with flip the field? Then they kicked field goals like brief into the fourth quarter. Proud of that in the most meaningful ballgame championship game and Super Bowl. How many points had that defense allow what happened gin in the fourth quarter of the Jacksonville game? Is that Tom Brady threw for one hundred thirty eight against the best defense in pro football in control the clock and the football and played keep away from the Jacksonville authentic. Didn't have time to do the damage that it had to do is up twenty to ten early in the fourth quarter. I'm just telling infants quality not how fax guy I'm not not how much of it. Do. I have a what did I do when I did have it. If that was the question of even though Tom was doing what he was doing in football. They don't play make take it. Like, we do it to black math. Get you. Keep the ball ball. You score. You got to kick off your betas. So Blake horrible. I mean, Blake Bortles with getting back on the field. The same Blake horrible threw for three seventy three get ballot chicks defense in week two of this year. The wet guy guy you're talking to get for Cody Kessler, the third quarter of last we've been worse fellowship that guy. That's the guy the guy we talked about the Jalen Ramsey. We know what the problem, but you know, Jalen, you said it now everybody else quarterback with trans say oh Blake. We got a good. No. You don't you got trade? What you call everybody else quarterback other than Brady and. A rod, but that's not the human with their skill. You know, what what is here and not there is that air. Rodgers got devante Jimmy Graham and dramas now healthy again and Randall Josh go on my question. Okay. All okay. You love you love doing. This has the most upside devante of the Josh Gord. I'm going to quote. Great, Shannon Sharpe. The pro football Famer Josh Gordon last Sunday looked like he was running with a piano on his back. He an back qualify because just disqualify own argument. But did he catch about what do any errands receivers? Look like they have PNO's on their back rent. I don't think so last time round carbon Geronimo Alison play. Are you playing this week? Randall Cobb he's playing he practice yesterday. The about we go. Well, I'm just. By Rybakov, and guess what? What the spread open at eight and a half. And the the betting public is riding the Rams and that got up to nine and a half Geronimo. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Todd Gurley on a historic pay. Okay. I mean, he I mean come on in throwing league here. The guy that has what fourteen fifteen touchdowns already them in games. He's on a pace to clips L and thirty one total touchdowns MVP. You gotta factor that Vegas with all that end. Oh, do they. Blade is we wouldn't pages play. Oh, I thought you meant the Cowboys. So patriots. We're gonna win this week the cowboy we're planning to buy out about. Oh, yeah. We got the by got this. Yeah. I guarantee dex QBR be like fifty no dactyl like seven touchdown passes yesterday against air to Amari Cooper air. Exactly. That's what I'm saying. Yeah. Okay. We we talk about Amar you'll guy. Everytime. Score the touchdown. You'll be saying Amari. So listen to that song last night. Do you know? What? Since the Cowboys are in the by. They have been able to use to their newest member Marin Cooper practice for the first time with his new team yesterday the three and four Cowboys needed a number one wide receiver deck Prescott said yesterday quote. This isn't the magic pill one player isn't going to make all these errors that we've had it go away. But Cooper was a little more optimistic when talking about his new team. Let's take a listen. A lot of play making ability. Stretch to defense. I'll eat till you guys to see a fresh start team. Just giving them something to build on. I guess you can say. It's America's team who wouldn't be excited. I know skip like that. But shannon. What do you make of the quotes? You just heard from those guys. Both both Dallas Dak Amari or saying the right things we're excited to have this guy got to play make our red. Or Jason Garrett said he's at cornerstone player Amari saying, it's great to be here. America's team great to be wanted. And and that is true. You want to be wanted. It hurt his pride. You the fourth pick in the draft from four years ago halfway through your four season. Coach says, nah, we're better without you that has to do something to your pride. But skip it. Here's the problem. If that why Dak says he's not a magic pill. Actually, that's not what the fans thing. That's not what the cowboy for an office thing because they believe that this guy is the guy that can put us over the hump to get up to win the NFC east, which you believe they're going to do and with that becomes a lot of responsibility. A lot of expectation will be placed on this young man shoulder because if it doesn't pan out. Like, okay, they start looking at Gerry sideways, because you know, you wanted to Jerry do it, Jerry. Do it gear. You lock your stomach Jimmy. I don't even speak in east. All my you know, what I should just take the rest of the day off. Now, I don't think. So if I'm the cowboy fans I'm concerned because with Khalil Mack situation was different skip. Okay. Jon Gruden said Khalil didn't show up the Cam. He didn't want to be here. So we move marketable day everyday code good had an opportunity to see him working practice everyday. He had to see him work in the game. And for some reason code Gruden wanted to move on. Now do does Amari Cooper have big play capability. The have the ability to break the game wide open. Sure. Absolutely. His ability has never been questioned if the consistency. That's been question endless since Mark Cooper's been into the lead. We'll see him have games at one forty in the next game. Fifteen yards will have a game of one eighteen when twenty and then you have three catches for twenty seven yards. So is not his ability. That's going to be questioned the consistency. What is he going to give you game in and game out that what the Dallas Cowboys fans are expected? And I know you sitting over there, you hope it you just better hope you don't get Amari Cooper of this year. And you get the Amari Cooper of the glow years. You take a day off in your like a mind reader. Jim stealing from me. I. I read that myth. All I know is that I was dozing off over here. Listening to your lifeless unenthusiastic monotone delivery. You gotta have some energy. When you talk about Amari Cooper to America's deemed, oh you daddy. Founded the Miami excited every night. I get more excited because the more I think about it the more I love this. They just went out and got a two time pro bowler who's all twenty four years of age. And he is completely healthy. He wasn't concussion protocol. But he says he's completely out of that. But he's had no needs no shoulders. No achilles. No, no. He is just good to go. And I have talked to him. I had one session with him on the other network, and I found him to be a really bright young man and a quick study. And I think he will just pick up this cowboy offense lickety-split and now perfectly right on schedule. They do have a buy week. What a great time to go acquire. The missing link. Go get him. So that you can at least have some extra practice wasn't day. That said he's not a magic. And what did you say we pulled that quote, a little bit out of context because the story that I read believe it's the Dallas Morning News. The early quotes the higher quotes are Dak was talking about how excited the whole football team is and I'm gonna use one quote out of their guys on defense or excited. The DB's are excited the defense Abacha. Karen, you, okay. So the point is that that's what I tried to tell you finally Jerry Jones actually woke up and did something. Okay. Again. Did he plunge? Yes. Did he overpay for Amari Cooper? Yes. He did. I said I give a fourth round or he gave a first where the eagles poised to give a second. They offered a second Redskins going to get into the bidding war. Yes. They were. So he just closed the deal. And I say thank you Jerry Jones because he sent a message to a locker room that is struggling because to your. Point. The defense is second points allowed there hanging in there hanging in the offense can't close deals on the road Owen floor on the road. But if you have a playmaker, you have a real live Pro Bowl number one receiver whose athletic. He's a glider. He's got that easy. Deep speed. He can run by people before they even know it he'll run past you. Okay. So the whole locker room according to Dak is excited. And he also went on to say that after watching him get into throw to on the practice field again against air seven on seven. He said some of the things he does just jump out. We'll obviously they do because he's got this collection of number three's. Alan Hearns Deontay. Thompson you're out there. He's the best route Rolodex ever thrown bought by far, and we know Dez didn't run rally. Right. And again Dax it it's like getting a new toy. So then he tried to temper all this saying, hey, hold on this later in the interview or. This isn't a magic pill. One player isn't gonna make all these airs that we've been making goal away. He's not the one guy is going to keep that from fumbling at the goal line. If he gets careless with the football. Okay. So the quarterback is taking a little pressure off Amari and say, we'll put it back on me. You can't because for the middle of the season. So these tell you anytime you make a trade that guy automated you saying he's a guy. He's the piece, but let me ask you this. You say Mark comes and he doesn't have any need. No hip. No Shoda no injury that can cousin protocol while the inconsistency. I can't explain it. I don't know. Did he again two years big time when you're a rookie in the NFL and you make the Pro Bowl is that not pretty great. Did you make the Pro Bowl? You know, you did. The team that they're okay. So he made the Pro Bowl and then he slipped. He slipped in his third year. And then he really slipped this year. He had a couple of hundred yards gang hundred games. But you failed to point out that there was a store your off yesterday. But there was a story out of Oakland that he had asked out. So it wasn't like he was happy in they dumped him. Although I think Jon Gruden was out on him because of his inconsistency. And I told you he's not your typical alpha male diva receiver he's not in your face. He's a quiet guy. He plays sort of quietly. His body language is not loud. And I think Jon Gruden said, well, I need every down intensity. And I don't see it from eighty nine and he wants to start over with his guys Khalil Mack. I don't think he saw every down intensity from Khalil Mack. And he said I can do better than that Kenny. Well, that's highly debatable probably highly doubtful. But he said I can do better than Khalil Mack or Amari Cooper. And I think he's about to say I can do better than that quarterback that he has been out on the quarterback. You have. I give you that. But the thing is is that one thing to coach gruden's going to have to understand you can't coach every player the exact same way. Some guys you can yell at skip. And they can roll it off. And they go do their job. Some guys will shut you out. Some guys will become confrontational with you. They will coach Gruden is under the the the old school, you know, coach coat there. But I mean, they were hard they graduate. They ground everybody. But in today's game these players are different now. I know, and listen, I know John and he's about five nine he's got a little Napoleon going to get up face of guys who were like a foot taller. He coaches har-. Yes. Coaches profane Lii, and he coaches to get under your skin into push your deepest button in some buttons cannot be reached that way. Yes. As you know, you absolutely, right. I don't know. But he's going to have to go find the guys who will respond to that kind of coaching. Is it is it too old? School is at not new school enough. Well, I'll tell you what's you can't keep giving away your best players. I agree. I some point time that comes up because think about what you just hopes that when you draft especially this 'cause Khalil Mack. I think with the fourth pick Amari Cooper was the fourth pale when you drive this. How you like man a whole we got a guy for ten years. This guy can play will magnolia play. He was defensive player of the year. I are Kuban to probe. Okay. I'm with you. But if you have five number one picks in the next two years, you could wind up with the number one overall pick you could trade for it. So you could go to the top and start over skip. I'm always my grandma's. He's always say the devil. You know is better than the one. You don't I know what I had with Khalil Mack. You don't know what you're gonna get the prospects. You don't they might turn out to be one of them might be clear might he might be even better than Khalil Mack. You might have the next Carson with Jared Goff at the quarterback with this. Or you might get the Knicks franchise left old land or defensive linemen or something you'd never know. My new from Khalil Mack. I'm gonna get me double digit sacks. I'm gonna get all pro Pro Bowl player. That's what I know. I had with him. So I like to of the things that Amari said about Dak and America's what he's they Amari said. I really liked the way Dak throws the ball. It's a good ball meaning to cast their call. I don't know what he said you say the more important point is did desperate ever say that about Dax ball easy to catch. I never heard that would drop them. Anyway. Okay. He was dropping him anyway. But he never seen to love them. And they never seem to get on any same page. So this is a good start. When when the new receiver the number one says I really liked what symbols are easy to catch. John's balls always looked hard to catch me because he just threw too hard skill. Here's the thing. What does say dad when Tony Romo was working his way back? There says he looked like the same Tony Romo even when he had thrown in the ball. That was the starter. He's talking about. How good Rollo running the scout team more running or just against air. That's what dad was doing. Because dad's new Tony Romo was going to put the ball up. No matter what. And that they had code that to get away from that. We're better. We don't have to force the ball. We can run the ball in his not there don't force. It will they took Vico away in that had to go against what he had been taught earlier fourth the ball. He liked you. See what is getting me? Y'all got me down. Got channel shot gave me a punk in gray. Because I might here today in double coverage because you say he can go up and get a he that Atlantic will maybe he used to be with Tony Romo. He he's not that way with me. And I'm looking horrible throwing them to put I agree with that. So the final non diva quote from Amari Cooper was and I'll read it again, I bring a lot of playmaking ability. I can stretch the defense. But then there's a, but this all those things I will leave that for you guys to see how many? Viva number one receivers would would make a statement like that. Because he just said I wanna talk about me. Let me just go show. Hold on. Are you asking me about me or you haven't been buzzing? Oh, you haven't been somebody else? If you asked me about me, I'm gonna talk about me. Well, wait, we know that we really what am I being Merican knows not about both of those. You're a diva tied in, gene. I believe in speech. Conspicuous consumption. You haven't you flaunt it? Yeah. I'm good. We noticed you want. You know, girl, building girl the have knife bigger than guy that have knife money up. Look at weather got bundles of money up there, you flaunt guilt Bela's so far have you down you let him now. He's he's not that not built that way. What would your? You wanna get on your team? That's not that don't I wanna guy who just does it. No, you told me you like cold, bud Mathis, Lou, Michael, Jordan. That's why you look Hobie Brian Qadhafi. Lebron James doesn't have that fasten. I'm getting Amari Cooper in the Michael Jordan. Would you like them dogs? Well, who doesn't like them? Don't want Amar you. He's just he just runs sweet routes. Oh, you want around Rhode just wanna route runner I want somebody just glides by the defense. Because all the sudden my defense is excited. My offense line is excited Zeke is excited and the opposing defensive coordinator is not excited because he's second guessing himself saying, I don't know if we can just lock everybody up and press man and blitz every down run blitz. Like, you can't do that. Because you can't lock him down in single coverage. You just can't seemingly. I guess you could rate has got rhythm for some reason. Well, I mean, maybe he needed a fresh start to be did. Well, the guy you notice doing what he's supposed to getting a fresh start. What guy, you know, death producing like he supposed to like the picking the draft two-time Pro Bowl player getting a fresh start somewhere else. You you got a fresh start right here, and you're producing that right rested. Joe? Okay. We're not wondering Joe that for you. That was the truth. Here. Seth curry went off last night. That is something. That's true. Is he trying to make an early season Nate -ment? We'll discuss what he did. How about this Steph curry had a career night at the wizards expense yesterday? He dropped three pointers everywhere on the court finishing with eleven total fifty one points in the blog win. Steph also moved up to fifth on the all-time three pointers, and he did it all without playing in the fourth quarter. Steph has been on fire this season scoring at least twenty nine points in every game. So far too bad start skip. What are you seeing from Seth? I'm gonna start with what I saw last night. I believe last night had a lot to do with what Blake Griffin did the night before when he scored fifty points and just a quick aside back in my days on the other network ahead of the two thousand nine draft. I battled day after day about how great Blake Griffin is going to be in the NBA. I continue to say Steph curry. Steph was going to be great. And you know, Blake everybody was on Blake's Bandra, I get and I wasn't and I'm an Oklahoma fan. So I'd watched him not for one year at Oklahoma. He stayed for a second year at Oklahoma. Which is never the best sign for a can't miss superstar. Wasn't a one and done. Right. And Blake Griffin didn't make a shot in college beyond about three feet. So I kept saying no this little guy at Davidson. It's not that literally six three he's going to be a great three point shooter. And he has elite point guard skills in handle that nobody was giving him credit for. So I'm saying picking him. I in Blake went first, and I'll be the first to say he's been better than I thought he was going to be because he has taught himself to shoot a shot. More range. Hey, he's got range. He won't range. I'll give you. We never see like Steph zone JR. So I believe that staff after he fell to seventh in that draft. I think it really stuck in his craw. And I believe that part of the motivation last night that it was no coincidence that Steph went for fifty one points after Blake the night before had gone for fifty and remember Steph did it on a shot late in the third quarter that put them up one fifteen to ninety three and he was done for the night on his fifty first point. And I believe there was method to that madness. I also believe just another quick aside. You know, I play golf your brother plays golf. It's the most humbling humiliating game on this planet, and what happened is Steph curry just before camp opened back in August. He tried to play in a web dot com in the bay area, and he shot seventy one the first round he's got allusions like he can be a professional golfer, and he'll lost it in the second round, very publicly. Could not drive the ball anywhere. But in the deep off, and he just couldn't get it back and he shot eighty six and he finished dead last tournament. And I think it shattered his allusions of what he could be as a professional golfer, and I'm seeing a recommitment from him because he just he's he's on an MVP early season tear right now because he's average thirty five game and he shooting fifty two percent from three he's thirty three of sixty. That's that's impossibly great last night. He made four threes from thirty plus feet, which he's never done it. That's that's crazy. That's that's twilight zone. That's that's somewhere else. And there was one shot that he made after the whistle blew where he just just throw it up in the air rafters wish it this. Stuff's crazy. And his teammates are yelling at into just shoot, it just shoot it which tells you what that Golden State culture is like if you've got the hot hand, they all just say, go shoot it. Skip believe this has more to do. Do with is that when we talk about the best players in the world Steph. Curry name is never mentioned is LeBron James is Kevin Durant and he's Hoda. Wait a minute is James hard. Anthony, Dave it is. He's like hold on. Wait a minute. I'm a three time champ in the last. Gotcha independ- the lab got a win to MVP back. The back in one of them being unanimous was meeting. So y'all keep on bumping him talking about these six eight guys in above James or nothing like six five. What about me? Did you forget what what capable of doing? Now. Let's get this performance last night. I think it was great. I believe when he hit we started with Steph curry became a household name is when he dropped fifty four in the guard because dropping fifty four in that arena in one of the venues because these believe join could have dropped sixty three at Chicago Stadium. And it wouldn't carry the same way to drop in sixty three in the garden in Steph. Curry is going fifty. Last night in grand fashion. It was unbelievable but dropping fifty four in the guard. Michael Jordan dropped fifty five double nickel game into guard. It resonates that. This was unbelievable. But Steph curry like hold on guys y'all forgot about me. Again. I told you skip Kevin Iran. I believe Kevin Durant. If a better player than Steph curry, but I believe Steph curry is more important to what the warriors need to do. Because get what's he going like this? Did you see can you feel the electricity in that building? Kevin Durant make shot crowd loving it. But with this gas stars doing this it takes unbeatable. This is why less Kevin Durant breaks this thing. I don't see a team that can beat them for the foreseeable future. Because why we're not talking about it? Kevin Durant missed five shots last night. He was not debate team. He dropped thirty. He dropped thirty point. And nobody mentioned it what they have these guys that can go go. Remember just let what last year skip. Klay drop sixty and twenty nine minutes into play the fourth quarter, let that sink in for second. Steph curry has there have been thirteen thirteen game in which a player may Levin of more threes, Steph curry has six of those know of none of the other players have more than one skip. He's the greatest shoot. Then you could end up where people I will if you had one shop for your life. I won't Jordan new. I won't Larry Bird was my life. I won't Steph curry taking specially if it has to be from diff- anything fifteen and beyond I'm taking thirty from Golden State to shoot the shot. I'll give you Michael I'll give you Koby. I'll it has to be from thirty. I'm taking that Jimmy fifteen and beyond will if you're just saying one possession for your life with the guy can create a shot is not even wash. Well, I'm just saying one shot. Let's say there's ten seconds left in your inbound in for midcourt. Out there. I don't care if you got the ball the bear. And you got the ball debate bear doing so well, he'll have the ball. Oh that you made somebody great points. And then you just lost. It do one shot for your life. Michael jordan's. I want the ball in his hands. You know, why? Because he's not afraid of the throw line you'll you'll get the two free throw joy shooting that Bella the free throw line this guy into the life. No. But he'll make them when they count and he won't unlike the new. No, this is not in the Bronx conversation, not up breaking up. You did to you. He gets tired of hearing that LeBron enough better playing without you send the name. Lebron james. Would you try to see what you try to do skill? Not seeing trying to doing right. You try to do it. You just you lost? It. You went completely over the edge. Nobody in blatant Jordan disrespect. You can't say Steph is gonna take the last shot over Michael, Jordan. Oh, yes. I did. And he goes I was old. I'll take the percentage of Michael Jordan taking a fifteen foot jump shot. I can see unlike the one LeBron turn down with Steph garden and game one at the end of the game. Oracle prep is new must saying like a caveat to use the word caveat. I think he just got carried away with your argument, and you just want to the edge into I want him taking the last shots knows that anything on anything beyond fifteen. Feet beyond fifteen. We'll make it thirty. Nope. Nope. Nope. I won't be teen. Skipped we've say nobody get hotline this kid, the only guy that can get hot like he can't have Klay Thompson. That's it on the same team. And by the way, if it's has to be three point shot for your life. I want Larry bird's taken. No, do I do is. Listen, you want to talk about cold blooded? A he he did, you know, the being labor fan. I know host I hadn't flirts, but Larry shoot like this this. We never seen anything like haven't. But you're talking about one shot for your life. He does go into slash ocare. If one shot or one hundred and you know, what if we start tearing apart his postseason resume, I can tear it all hadn't been that. Great last two you do. But unbelievable. Okay. But what about game seven against your guy that was skip everybody does who. Everybody in everybody's not going to average a triple double in a game seven, you're gonna have peaks and valleys. Remember the behind the back pass through seven throw say, what are you doing? That's who he is. And that's why you have to accept because all those bash the shot that he shoots everybody you tell them. No. No, no. But you don't tell him. No. Because because every shot of the good shot for him. That's the shot. He wants to shoot. That's a badge. You wanna take that shot? No. You don't the only shot? I won't step to take. If no shot. I don't want him shoot. Because he's the only guy skip the everytime. He put the ball. Look, you actually think is going in no matter how far he shoots he can shoot the ball from half court. Okay. But he is capable you know, and I know of going four for fourteen and then you have a chance all the sudden you gotta shot, but the other guy the seven foot guy, the monster number thirty five, oh, you mean, you mean the one they ran from the shot in game three of you. If you. Wait a minute. I don't show you. Okay. And then what happened? Did he not rectify that situation in game three of the finals and back to back all so so you run from though Schaal the beginning to make sure I'm hearing you correctly. So if you if you rub from shadow, you miss a shot, you can rectify LeBron even though he claimed in rail and say game six duty not rectified in games of my team was shot to the heart. Maybe you just told me why would you team be shot? Because remember I told you LeBron would go to the wire. No, did you. Did he didn't have a last hit? Remember, they will only up to a LeBron had eighteen foot from top of the key on Koa who's good that night. He was you. All you all you can say he was good. I give you that. He was good. But listen, Kevin Durant. He is the cold blooded assassin on this team the shot made like last second shot. I'll take Kevin Durant over Steph. Look, I will okay since Kevin Iran's been there look at their record without Katie and look at their Ricca without Steph. Well, I don't get the difference between most valuable and most important is the one or the other. Oh four. No, no, take stand. I did the most valuable player is thirty valuable twenty three. No. Thirty five. Who who's the files DP the last two years? It was thirty five Robin done that Brenda. VP's but LeBron was in the finals, and he didn't been there done that he got out played in back to back home game three. We'll give the final haven't drank show, we show LeBron Steph curry last year, I wonder what would happen if you had a Macau Korver. So what you told me straight face what the six best all time three point shooters ever. I don't know you Benji Miller. I don't know. So you take a regimen overstay Kurt. No, okay. On just doing numbers. That's excu. There's a legitimate chance that by the time Steph. Curry is doing the do could legitimately have four thousand three could four thousand nightly basis. He is the greatest shooter we've ever seen in the regular season in the postseason. He hasn't been all-time. Great. Here's the thing. Because you don't get those kinds of possessions. The game is not as up and down in the postseason. Yeah. As it is in the regular season. But Skippy average twenty ninety almost average a triple double the past couple of finals, the average what thirty last year and Kevin Durant won the MVP, but it had to give it to Steph curry would you have been upset if they gave Steph curry final. Yeah. Would have been very up. You know, what let me tell you. Why you've been up there because it would be still current with the got it would occurred your argument, Iran, if the best Laleh hell. My argument because it was the right way though. That's what I got you. So John with staff, would you believe Kevin Durant average through the first? What are they five games twenty seven eight and six those are LeBron numbers LA and nobody's talking about. Kevin Durant because everybody's talking about thirty. And they shouldn't be. Yes. But dull sleep on this guy. He's tired of everybody talking about all the the guy himself labeled the jump. Get about me what I'm capable of doing pretty soon Kevin's going to get tired of it. He will get tired and deal. When you get tired of one person. We are not tired of talking about is LeBron Christmas are ready to jump back on the Lakers bandwagon. We're going back to him and be will ask. The lakers. They desperately needed a win last night after starting the season three and they showed a big and Phoenix LeBron scored nineteen points at a tennis. He sat out the fourth quarter in total seven Lakers scored in double figures in the blow it win next up for a lay a home game tonight against the undefeated nuggets. Joined by f s one analyst Christopher Sarda. Good to have you back this time yesterday. All right. You predicted fifty three wins for the Lakers before we got this started. Are you back on the bandwagon? I was never all hot day. A little odd just pointed out that challenges. I was like Luke Luke went off in the team meeting. Just like, hey, you got the star players them defense. And by the way, your roster doesn't make sense. But you got the best player in the world. Oh, I I'm gonna give you the benefit of doubt. Second best player. I saw you before who's the best way on the warriors. Now, we say that's another subject. I'm not going to overreact to beating the sons. I mean, the sons they're talented, but they're young and they're just bad. That's just about a minute. Not a very good team. Obviously tonight's a much bigger test for the Lakers Denver's legit. You know, so and if you look at the first three losses we talked about yesterday they were in every game. They just didn't close. So yesterday they are last night. They did what they were supposed to do. They didn't need to close because they did exact and you beat you rowdy team. Yeah. The reason I one of the reasons they had trouble in in the first three games. Because late in the games, you saw LeBron was pretty much handling the ball. And I think the other guys didn't really know how to what to do around. Right. Where to go because earlier in the game rows a little more off the ball and other guys are hamlet and stuff. So. Oh, what I saw last night that I liked that was encouraging is LeBron the ball more. Like, he was kind of basically playing point a lot of you. Right. Yeah. And I think the guys are starting to get a little more used to that lanzobol is showing me even the only hit one three pointer last night. He can play off the wall. And you know, even though he's been appoint are he's not a ball dominant point. He's always been a guy that gets rid of you. And if he can shoot it which he's been shooting it pretty well. I mean forty one percent they he can play off the ball. Obviously. I love putting Josh Josh Hartnett starting lineup. He's he's better than Casey peak. ACP could be a spark off the bench, the heart can shoot a three and let him get those minutes to build. Right, right. I mean, you know, what Casey P point of his career lead. Josh get out go and hit four three. So that's another floor space and shooter with LeBron and Kouzmin hasn't shot it well from three to twenty five percent. But he's a good shooter. Like, he's a guy you have to respect at the three point line. So that's another. So you had three guys with LeBron that theoretically can shoot the three and keep the defense on this. So if they get more used to him playing point I think, look he's going to do everything LeBron that's just how he plays. But I think it's kind of challenging the bows back and forth with him off the ball him on the ball him. You know, and so they may have to make decision there. But at other last night with just what I said the challenge remains though, Rondo wasn't playing and he's not like Lonzo off the ball. You talk about my zoning rules. Dantley Inger late. I love coups MMA, just because he spread the floor for the Brian shoot it. But when Ingram's not coming off the bitch. I don't see that. So that's going to be another challenge. And it's still a work in progress. But they seem to be adjusted to some of the work in progress. And that's what I told skip early. I'm not putting a whole lot of stock in beaten a very bad team. This what you was supposed to be out of been more concerned had the only beaten Phoenix by five points. Now have been really concerned because they haven't seen penis play. They're not very good basketball team again. Like, you said Chris the true test comes tonight because the nuggets offer real and they'll get up and down with you wanna run. Oh, you want a hundred and ten possession that what you won't. Okay. We'll get you out in. We will go yet. It will be a bad idea. But here's the thing. They'll get run. Yes. They'll get run off. Here's the difference. There hundred Tampa session, they're going to get up thirty five three and they're gonna make sixteen of those. That's a whole different ballgame. And he got that big Ascii obey. I don't know if you noticed it. Oh, you're old joker. He real he really he could do it. Oh, yeah. He might he mentally sound. He's point center back out of your bed. You're making a case you shouldn't have made the bat. Do you remember last year where LeBron due to the joker? Okay. You remember LeBron's deal guy, those big if you fifteen foreign big may hold me that he had a better sporting cast in Cleveland than he has now. That's what you told me. What did you say that? Yes. Yes. I don't miss a trick. I love the Putin. Which is which guy on their rosters better than Kevin love. Kevin love. There's guys I okay. Kevin. Love's better. He's the second best player. But he's in a game. Put up his number. They will be we said that just go. That's what makes the Bronx rains and low percentage talk that team might win fifteen games twenty games this year it within the finals in all laws was one player lead. I think it, but we're not talking about that you can't trying to distract me. Let me give my point out. What point? Only the Lakers. Chris we're without putting a whole lot of stock in the Lakers meeting a bad team you want to. But you're no, no. It's not smart. It might not last twenty four hours and wag fifty what we look real real of right now a lot better coach saying really, we should be three one. Really? We should be three. We can make case you should be for. No seriously. But you'll take. Yeah. You're right. Lou about it. They lost at home to the Spurs that lost by twenty last night to the Pacers. And they loved their home Tonio. They lost at home to to the rocket who got blown up their own core. So those the game that you should win in the end. I think as they get better. Get more more familiar with playing with each other. But it's going to be a challenge. Skip it's going to be a challenge. And like you say all this thing was looking good. Lonzo plan off the ball last divas and dancing with the ball. Everybody can get the ball up the rim and get it up the court, whatever run comeback. What happened with Brandon Ingram combating? Because. Those guys live going to bring those guys up the bitch, which I don't see happening. Then what guess what we're gonna find out in about another week? Or so Rondo got got tonight and another game. I think on Saturday Huby back. We will see what what is only I won't work game out. Right. It was three more for Ingersoll lingers being more. Yeah. Or is it? The first three I think if Lonzo okay shooting it. Well, I think they should leave Lonzo missed I didn't play. So I sit on yesterday show, and you know, this because you admitted early in the show that you are watching carefully even though you weren't here yesterday. You saw you didn't miss a trick on yesterday, right, gene? But you also did have it was she? One on the outside. What you didn't see that? You you with the left? She had her fingers crossed with. But you in sound what you didn't see I had my fingers. Oh, it's cancel completely. So what I said yesterday was that the suspensions clarified a few nights for Luke took him off a hook. That's going to get hotter and hotter, and all the sudden he could play a couple of players high minutes that he might not he'd have to make big decisions on. And I'm with you. Lonzo loves LeBron vice versa. You can tell the brand season is like a quasi son. You know, like like they vibe off each other because they both have high basketball IQ's, Lonzo not quite in LeBron's league. But he does he plays everything the right way and LeBron can trust. He's going to defend he's going to scale the ball. He's going to get a rebound here there. He's going to do the right? Little things that add up to big things. And he's step when he steps into his threes. He makes threes. He also is going to lead the league in three point airballs because he's off to the racist. Every night he shoots to air ball. And I told her James he the rips at or he misses by three, and I don't know how you can do that. It's it's all about conviction. Because when he he's not sometimes LeBron who's the best ever thrown the skip, Pat complete cost and it comes so fast. It's like he's not even looking goes. He just flips it, and it goes like forty feet across the court. And all sudden, you're like, I'm open shoot, I shoot this. And lonzo's lonzo's a spot up shooter Lee one last year, and so he hesitates for second. When he has a he has lost because he's going to air ballot. But when he catches it and steps into it even in clutch situations, he's made a couple of big ones. What you saw last night. Put the ball on the floor and drive and he can finish that. He went looking like get to the rim and kick like, I'm finishing this K. So I'm a little more bullish on even off the Phoenix win. I liked what I saw. But I've liked a lot of what I've seen from this team. It's a little better than I thought it was going to be I said forty seven wins. I'll stick by that. But they have impressed me because they're pushing it at an historical rate. I've never seen like this. They're averaging seventy one points in the. Pain a game. Which is again, the pelicans lead last year at fifty two point Sogame in the paint. So they're shattering that mold from last year because they are pushing it so hard on the break. It's not because jails dominating pain. They're getting open break looks right. Ain't gonna understand the Pedic of leading. They got boogie earth. That was a different doing different way that upside from this. They're scoring in the paint in set off all rights. Okay. So I said before the year, this is going to be the most fun offense to watch an all basketball in it is I was wildly entertained last night by what I saw special in the second quarter. But who is the igniter the last person I thought is Lance Stevenson comes off the bench in the mid first quarter. There's still struggling still there down one at this point land. Stevenson, and I tweeted I never thought I would see the night where it lands. Stevenson carried LeBron's team because I never thought they'd be on the same team to start with. And he comes in and plays eleven straight minutes and scores twelve points with four rebounds and six assists. And he starts to second wit LeBrun. He did letting have three more minutes, but it was the turning point of the night albeit against probably the worst team in the west. But it changed everything he just ignited them. And then they launched from that point on. And just kind of rolled over and said, we're not good enough. And I was Devon Booker. He just never got going. He couldn't entr ever Reza look like he semi retired. He got his money. And he just said, whatever, that's why LeBron wanted a guy like, Lance. He is a playmate. And you saw it last night. He he certainly kyri obviously was a playmaker. But horse soda yourself more. So, but if you wanna say Kyrie was like that and LeBron hasn't had a guy like that since they couldn't make he trust to make plays way was somewhat like that that was ago. So yeah, that's why LeBron wanted those guys. But last night, also they hit the three. Yeah. I did. I mean, they weren't great thirty five percent. Which would you have the most that you can live with that? They've been thirty foot hole year, and that's gone up because the last night, but you can live if they can shoot thirty five percent and hit about ten. That's that's good enough because they're going to get much. Than you live with LeBron b and four for twenty four from three seven t he's. Well, see the good news, though, you and even you notice he's going to he's going to improve you would think 'cause he had one year Miami shop. Hey, what do you want? What do you want to go? So what did you last you, go shoot? At again, you think so giggle date for the free. Not. Yes, you're gonna lose gives you eighty percent right now. Did he shoot eighty percent late in the game that we talk about ride that overall feel free throw is? But it's early and history is on my side on that one. Just like it's off eighty Ron got it early next. You already lost this last year to win it back from Kathy? That's how they get my money on one thing. I go bits. No, yeah. Okay. We're gonna look ahead to the future next where will Katie well where will eighty and where we'll be next summer a lot of dis modern names where are they going to go? We'll tell you. Even though the NBA season just started according to ESPN Brian win horse some leagues X Ardy thinking about next season. They feel that Kevin Durant quite Leonard Jimmy Butler and DeMarcus cousins will all be on different teams next summer as any Davis can't be free agent until twenty twenty teams are lining up for a potential trade. And although we Irving said he's committed to resigning with the Celtics plenty of exacts are still putting him in the free agent column. Joined once again, by Chris Broussard, a lot of names there. Lot of rumors. What is your gut feeling some of those rumors? Well, the guy I have the strongest gut feeling on is a free agent twenty twenty. And that's Anthony, Dave, I think he's gonna end up with the Lakers he signed with Rich Paul now know there was a Nike deal shoes. And all that that helped him go to rich too. But we know riches LeBron's agent and clutch. And I'm not saying is going direct him. They're like. Make him go there. But he know what he was doing when he signed we Rich Paul. He knew that the connection to the Lakers, LeBron and all that. So the thing is it may have to get ugly since he's not a free agent till twenty twenty because they'll essentially if they want if he wants to be an LA next season this season, he's going to be in New Orleans the whole year if he wants to be in LA next season, they're going to have to go to New Orleans and say look just like Jimmy Butler. I don't think he will hold out and get like that. But he's they're going to have to say look he's not resigning. He wants to go to the Lakers and try to scare off other teams. And then the Lakers would probably make a trade within because they got so many pieces they can get rid of. And that the I think that what what pieces would they would require well requires a strong word because New Orleans how much leverage will they have. If they tell him, look it's Lakers or bust the end, they don't get now. Willa team take a chance. We saw Oklahoma City with Paul George what if to run what if Kawhi stays in Toronto, and I'll get him in a minute. But if he stays in Toronto now teams are going to be emboldened to say, hey, we saw it with two guys. They stay. So let me take a chance. But I'd say Brandon Ingram could be one. Especially depending on what he does this. You has not off to a great start. Let's see how he plays. I don't you mentioned Ingram and Kouzmin s seems like a lot. But it is an. Twenty-five years Davis just in a vacuum with no strings attached. And no leverage ical on in a vacuum. It would require Ingram Kouzmin and Josh heart to me that would be equitable. We'll it's just it depends on how much again. Well, you say in vacuum. You think that would be equitable because you're gonna even if you have LeBron AD you still going to need some of I wanna keep Josh heart. I wanna keep it. We got lands lands. Dan. Lance or Lonzo lady Lonzo beating got. But. Okay. So that's. Katie Angolan, the story was right on because around the league people do think this is last year there and Golden State they're going to try to sell him on one more year. They kinda know he's not finishing his career here. But they're hoping one more Wigan convincing. Look you wanna play your first the first year in the new arena. Don't lee. Right. That's going to be their cell and one thing that may help them with that is where's Katie gonna go? You got the clippers. Now, he could always do that. Does he wanna go there New York if Kyrie's not going with you or Jimmy in New York gotta do so maneuvering to get to max box. So New York, I think is only going to be in play. If there's somebody else they can go with him, you know, especially if they have a bad year for Zing doesn't play plays ten games can you count on him being healthy? But New York, we know we know Katie like to go with stacked deck Doni. We know he likes to go all aces. Well, the whole they fairness in fair if I'm Katie KP Porzingis and kyri that's a really strong team. But it's not like going to Golden State like, but he liked what is kind of what in the bronze other than Allegra. I want some talent that I can win with. So I give him that would Ellie. Yeah. To to move on. Kyri? Even though he said he wants to stay in Boston. I was talking to an executive last night that I think he's going end up somewhere else. And so here's because it's not just about kyri is about Boston. Like what if they don't get to the fine? They're not off to a great start early. But what if they don't get to the finals? I don't know if I see this. But what if they don't make the Eastern Conference finals with kyri, and you made it without him. You got all these guys will they wanna give him five years. One ninety with the injury history that he's had and the fact that maybe we play better and Tatum coming down the pipe, right? Jalen Brown coming down the pipeline. So here's the thing. If they don't want to if they decide what no matter if they decide we can't have all these max guys or we want to move on from kyri. I don't know that these there the whole year because are you going to trade him before the deadline in February rather than losing for nothing as a free agent, definitely or do you trade somebody else leg if I were them maybe trying to train Gordon Hayward? Because I think Jason Tatum better than Gordon Hayward. Jaylen Brown, I think will be if he's not already right now. Right. I think Jalen Brennan. And I think horford's more valuable to you. I go to me Hayward's expendable or if they want so it could be all sorts of people. And then I mentioned Kawai, look, I've al- I've been told before he was even trading until now lake is LA. Now, the latest what after they, and I've been told it doesn't matter what he's going LA one or the other clippers or Lakers. But the Lakers feel they feel kind of they think despite all these rumors that he doesn't wanna play with the brand. We'll we get. Can we kick Hawaiian AD? We ain't got that kind of. L? I'll play the lottery, I've tried a witch. What that's the thing which. AD eighty eighties better and better. Right now Toronto. Because what if they get to the fine? What then be and they're already did you see the video. They put out that they play show where they do. Catholic. Number two. I don't have you betcha by Dave. Just number two draft. A me too. Def forgiveness in your heart. He's bowling. He's ball until he gets hurt. He already missed a night of a back to back. Mrs single-game risk. I think that was rest. I wanted to see him less, right? A year. Right. Because if you come back a night off thirty five I will get you another night. I can just tell you his thigh is going to start her. It's not what you would like nothing would have not win back Illo people's yet where you're just rooting for him to come to the Lakers. But anyway, I said it from the very moment that I that Anthony Davis side with Rick falling. Recalling that I thought this was a moon that was going to get him to the Lakers and still believe that could be wrong. I've been wrong before but not very often not varying. I ten times. So I feel very comfortable this Katie, look, if the only way this thing gets broken up in Golden State, go on a run here and win two of the next championships. Katie breaks it up because Katie breaks it up. Now, they become beatable if not gonna be easy because they play together before they've gone to NBA finals before with Katie. They won it won't be easy. But Katie is the one thing that come find that come playoff time come finals that you have no answer to because I can run two guys at Steph. You got no Katie run two guys. He's still going to release the ball over Levin feet, and you can't touch can play with his back to the basket. He could put the ball on the floor. He can initiate up. He can do all these things. So there's no answer. So if he doesn't break it up Golden State's gonna win another two or three championship. What if AD or cogos to the Lakers, we need both of? I mean, it is you wanna stack your deck? Oh, look, it's okay. Right magician. If goals if Katie state and Golden State, maybe other players not Kawai will wanna go to a super team like that. But let's say they could get co is a free agent. The lakers. Yeah. You could trade for a D if you gave up like you mentioned, you're packing. His skill and you can have three win. We've we'll go probably like something like seventy six and six AD, LeBron and seventy did you just say savviness six six record by rega-? Gay three games. Yes. Okay. Yes. And we bet like a swimming pool. A guy. Golden State go seventy three or nine with Steph, clay and Draymond. You don't think we can win three more games with wa AD Ambro challenge would be adjustment. Right. That's a lot of by come playoff time. They'd be ready to roll. So by far the biggest domino and all of these scenario number thirty five in Goldie, right right now, and he's going to tip the scales in one direction or the other stay or go. And then we're does he go. And it's interesting to me because the x factor and all this is Kyrie Irving, and you guys know how much I love Kyrie. But I don't love what I'm seeing from him so far because he's no longer, Kyrie Irving. And I sure hope that changes for his sake, and Boston sake and future sake, but he's had two major knee-injury. And right now, he is tip toeing through games. He's like on ice just because he doesn't trust his legs yet. And I hope he does. Does. But when you've had two major ones in your kind of a sensitive young man to start with like, he's really thinking hard about. He's a finger. He's and he's thinking this worth it is my knees rallies. Right. Yeah. What about the rest of my life and the guy that replaced here? He played a slight injury it caused him. So all that's going through. Because the things he said what he said with the Boston media. They fan day guide. If you would have me, I remember this building full of crazy fan. You remember the game five when you sitting up on the podium, and he was talking about how great he would be foolish. Not to absorb all the information plan. With the grads player. This dude is unbelievable. And then two weeks later, I won't out. Yeah. Well, he may one out because they might want him out of Boston because they are so loaded. He's gonna have to hold off Rosiere now for some minutes because rose ears plan at a higher level right now, he doesn't look at explosive. He doesn't look if quick I mean carries put that into the bucket. It's not there. You said you just hope it comes together, and you hope is related to rust in the injury and things like that. And Danny age has shown I hate to use the word cutthroat, Dan. He's a nice guy. Right. And I don't think he means wrong or ill. But he will do what he has to do on the way he straight business. We saw with Isaiah. If he did that's why AM play when his after sister's death and through the injury and was near VP the dots connect at Madison Square Garden, and if Kyrie's not Carini more than his K D saying, I don't know if I want to just go play with Porzingis. And there's kinda strapped already. I don't know. Then does he stay? Does he go there? He might go there with Jimmy Butler. Maybe well, we know we're not going Mogi, see. Like Ron now. Now that I don't think thank you for joining us. We have a lot to look forward to and a good season coming up, but how about Baker Mayfield. Skip your guy. Our guy really been helping them out lately. Why? The Browns offense they have struggled bake time and their overtime loss to the bus last week. He didn't score a point on offense until the third quarter. And then they couldn't get a first down in overtime loss prompted Hugh Jackson to say he will be more involved with the offense. Baker Mayfield responded to that yesterday. Let's hear what he said. I think a lot of things said postgame emotionally. But I think the thing around here is we don't need to reinvent the wheel. We'd perfect are craft. You look at the good teams around the league they work hard at what they do. And they become very very good at it. We we have a we have we don't need to try and change too much. We just need to get better. What we're doing? There's there's no secret recipe for success sites. Working your ass off, Shannon. What are those comments tell you? You're saying that little gathered no reason panic breaker Mayfield started four games. Three of those games have been three point three of them's going to overtime. So what do we panicking for? We're fine. I mean, we score forty points. We lose twenty three to kick a field goal. We lose. What do we painting for the only game? They were blown out with the charges and beggars also saying subtly, Hugh leisure, you had control off edge thing before that you. You wanna be we need you to stay right there where you are Goodhew. But Hugh understands. It gives like skip the he was like, whoa. Don't wait a minute. If I don't I need to have some because I believe it's gonna take somewhere between eight nine games to keep this job. And you say like, you know, what if I'm gonna go. Let me go down, you know, with my hands on the wheel. Yeah. Somebody controlled them my own. Yeah. But I agree with Baker. What what do we what do we panicking epileptic appeal because we got the ball, first and overtime things. Just didn't go out way. Raiders. I mean, look shouldn't even got overtime because that was that was a fumble. Derek Carr of the ball to gas scoop it up it should have been toys down and the Browns should win this gate. So agree with Baker Mayfield. I don't agree with very often. But in this situation, I do there's no reason to panic. They're not getting blown out the gave their clothes you doing a good job overseeing the team, Neil lit. Todd. Haley continue to do what he's doing. Do. You realize what a powerful statement? You just said in Baker just said between the lines of what he was saying. He said, no, this is between the lines. He saying no you just keep doing what you do. Because the guy who's call my places doing just fun. That's powerful. That's that's really drawing a line because I'm pretty sure Baker is closer to the new GM John Dorsey, then he is to the old head coach Hugh Jackson. And I'm pretty sure that John Dorsey is dropped a hint or two that maybe we'll go in a different direction at some point at head coach in I think, that's. Is coming. And I think Hugh is flailing and fighting always supported you. But I didn't love the way he in my view mishandled the quarterback competition during training camp that was for all view on hard knocks and all of a sudden he had to star coordinators Greg Williams, Todd Haley who were sort of taking over hard been hit code all head coaches. You don't think you're threatened and now, Hugh when he grabs the Mike he's he's trying to seize the day. This is my football team. And I'm in charge in I have the land. I have final say on everything. And now he's indicating he's going to take back over the offense. I don't think it would be a good idea for the reasons you just said, although Hughes had stints as ordinary Cincinnati at USC where Hugh moly good at Oakland. Yeah. He was the head coach. But here's the thing goes give what Baker said is being be patient. Baker has that luxury bakes have the guaranteed contract. We know he's going to be there for at least four years. They're probably going to pick up his option. Guess who doesn't have another? For years to be patient Jackson. Hugh Jackson say that I need to get wins. These closeness does not count. This is not a grenade thrown horseshoes. Or I'm not slow death in eighth grade. Closeness has nothing to do with whether or not I'm going to be able to hold onto this job. And so I get what Baker that I agree with Baker, Hugh. We saw what you did when you had control what in thirty one lead. Todd Haley, keep this thing. But he was saying I can't be patient. My boss wants to see we if you want to see we moved up to get you got talent around you defense playing defense you'll plan to the high levels one game. We saw the charge. You like what happened to the deep is? But all in all they've been very solid. I'd get what you say. But Baker that this how many times do you see a new GM come in and stick with the old head coach for for longevity. It just doesn't happen usually you'll give him a shot. And usually you're not quite on the same page, and you go a different direction. I want my guy dog house. Yeah. So I'm pretty sure John Dorsey will go in a new direction not during this year, but next year, and I feel bad for Hugh because he's a good football coach. He is not proven that much in Cleveland. And I hope he gets another shot somewhere else. How many shots you want him to get? You know, what I think he's the classic. He's a better coordinator. You took the words. You took the words something some guys are like that way Phillips way way with head coach buffalo. Hey, coach in Denver. He's had go to Dallas. I don't think it was head coach in San Diego. But he had a lot of different places. But he better defensive coordinator. Maybe that's the same case with north tournament. Maybe turn it is just a better OSI, they need eight see, no doubt. And that's okay. And that is also the case with the current Dallas cowboy head coach the eight eight Jason Garrett day owned team to be whatever you want to be quotes around. Oh, Jason Gary Jones. He is. No, he is another son to a fault. You gotta get him about it. Yeah. He tried to cut into the air. I would agree. All right. We are going from Baker Mayfield to Aaron Rodgers because he is a huge underdog on Sunday. And that's not something we say often Marshall earth is you're next. Player in Rodgers. And the Packers will be here in LA Sunday defaced the undefeated Rams on FOX. They're a nine and a half point underdog, which is the highest point spread against Roger since. He's been the Packer starter. He's facing a Rams team. That is a perfect seven zero an average of nearly thirty four points a game. Fox NFL analyst Marshall earth is joining us this morning, Mark. What is the points for tell you? Well, it tells me this is that the Rams are considered a much better much more complete football team. You rely on air Rogers. You're the Green Bay Packers. And we've seen this throughout the career of a guy like Peyton Manning several of these elite quarterbacks where you get to the point where you just rely on that elite quarterback to be elite all the time. I look at Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. There are games where they go, Tom. You're going to have to beat this team. We're gonna out scheme. You you're going to throw the ball ton. There are. Times say, hey, some innocuous backup running it's going to get two hundred yards rushing. So from a scheme standpoint, they are much better at scheming their opponents when I look at the Rams their complete football team in offense that things is interesting about them as many big places, they make they have what they call the allusion of complexity, meaning they are running motions and jet sweeps and all this different stuff and the bottom line. They're going to get into eleven personnel, three wives nickel personnel. And they're going to cram it down your throat with Gurley. And you look at their balance. You look at their ability to run the ball the way they go about their business. They are exceptional. So what this tells you more than anything else as yeah. We love Rogers Raja's great. But you're not nearly as good a football team is with the Rams present at every level offense, Yvonne as well. As defensive. Interesting. Yeah. Brought about our go. Somebody say that bear same thing. I tried to somebody said something else you try to make it about all doubt Abed Tom Brady. He never be play that Satam on what I do. And it's simple as this look Vegas. There's a reason why they keep building these billion dollar building. They're not building those winners money. They're taking in more than their schilling out. And the Rams are when you look at them what they possessed the ability to run the ball consistently with Todd Gurley because what he's still a top five rusher with all the tests down, and you don't have to change a lot of teams, you got the change. When you get the third down there. Bring a different edge pitas elicits thirty one is coming off the field. A lot of the running back even marketing in New Orleans for the most part. He's coming out the field. They're bringing Camaro on the field. But when you play the Rams not leaving the field. But he's every down back there. Very few of those. Now that's left him in a failed that there are every down back. And that's what you they have a quarterback. But a lot of people thought was a buff. Both would that was coaching him when he got drafted and they got rid of him and now Jerry goblet like, wow, I see why he would the first overall pick defensively Aaron Donald Mazda Zimba. They got nobody block it if they if they thought what Khalil Mack Tobon opening night or something you just wait, you wait and see with this. This guy here is the real real deal. Remind you of another guy that were ninety nine the played in Tampa. He just small it. Just a quick he's powerful. He got all the moon swim. You figure hope he boy you. When is it? My turn. Guess what? Don't they'll sell short those still special for you? Hell. What Vegas is screaming that Aaron Rodgers is not Tom Brady. That's what this tells you if this were Tom Brady and obviously the New England Patriots. But if they were at the Rams this weekend. It would be maybe L A minus three maybe minus three it might even be picking. It'd probably get bet up to pick them with or without coach Belichick chick. You mean the guy who's lost his fastball on defense, or what am I guy who gave up all those forty one points in the Super Bowl to Nick foles? The guy who got torched at Jacksonville who got torched at Detroit who got torched in the second half by Kansas City and give up thirty one points at home. That's just pathetic upon pathetic upon like at some point the emperor has no clothes anymore. You just say, that's you just got exposed you're out because Tom Brady keeps overcoming one of the worst defenses in pro football. And don't tell me it's better than Green Bay's. Because it's just not I can just show you the numbers even to your point point scored close fifteenth to twentieth. Green Bay's given up the fifteenth most points to the twentieth. Most points by New England but yards its eighth to twenty fifth. So again teams are just going up and down the field on bell checks defense. They're still scoring at the rate of the twentieth. Most points in the league against that defense that is just pathetic. And don't give me running games. Because if you've noticed Aaron Jones since he got healthy and came back. He's averaging six yards a carry for Green Bay. And don't give me receivers. Because devante Adams is a big time. Number one. Pro Bowl receives he's averaging twelve yards a catch and Jimmy Graham is living up how much money they gave him because he's not quite gronk but gronk rarely quite gronk because he's not healthy anymore. But what are you to do what? But you make it seem like if they're the twentieth. Ranked defense get yard allow what do you think the Rams are gonna do the every thirty four points the game? So what do you think the Rams are gonna do to line away? Tom Brady would do he would just control the football, and you could say dinkum dunk, but he's leading receiver is little tiny James white whose average all of eight yards a catch compared to twelve for. Devante their catches or about the same. But you're getting away with James, white and Chris, HOGAN and. Obviously, you finally got element back, and maybe Josh Gordon will turn into something. Maybe you won't because you said he looked like he was wrong with the piano on his back week. But the good. Say so what you're gonna case for is that Bill Belichick is a much better. Coach coaching staffs much better coaching stuff than they have in Green Bay. If you have all those players that are better in Green Bay than they are in New England. Aren't you really making a case that I know but the quarterback he's coming overcoming a pathetic defense in New England. And I think Josh mcdaniels is really good because Tom Brady is also a coach on the field and they collaborate. Well, what about what about the defense defense? The Packers not great butts better than New England. All I'm saying Tom Brady his head top ten score defensive throughout the entirety of his career. Well for the last three years he hasn't. What did they finish last year? There were top-five Gordon. Did you see what happened in the playoffs? You take Bortles had him on the ropes. Juanita ten in the fourth quarter to score three points in the fourth quarter Brady threw for one hundred thirty eight yards on that defy quarter. Ford quality control the ball. I'm asking how many yards throw four against Philly a bunch of yard all five and all the time playing in the fourth quarter. He threw four bucks. But guess what happened Phillies scored eight points the difference between scoring eight points scored zero points. That's what happened. How does the backup quarterback score forty one? Check. I know I can't get over that. Maybe it's because he didn't play his best defensive back to the whole game. All the way up. Well, it it is over with an haunts made. You know, I loose lint on Braida half. How did that happen? Hombre to have to control the ball because he didn't have big play capabilities. Brandin cooks can hit you for eighty Todd Gurley belong to Tom Brady. Would you what you want me to do about that? They didn't want him because Bill wanted handicap is quarterback sabotage on. I think for me the biggest thing about when you talk about Aaron Rodgers is does he have some weapons? Yeah. Do you rely on Aaron Rodgers to bail you out with big place? I think the difference is how you scheme in New England. How you guys open? How you take advantage of what the defense is doing how you make them quote, unquote, play left. That's all New England stuff in there are times in Green Bay. When you have a guy like air Rogers, you just go. Hey, man, go out win a game for us. And that often is that like invade can do it a ton because that's. They've done. Wait. Wait a second since his lone Super Bowl long ago. He's five and six in the postseason. So in the postseason. He can't just say I'll go just. Team's win last year without him nowhere. Where would anybody go without Brady? But here's the thing. The reason why you don't keep Brandin cooks because the Rams gave him fifteen million. Guess what you're not going to do play a scale player more than a franchise quarterback? That's why we're we're would anybody go without Tomba. Wait. What was that castle went ten? Okay. Wait. Wait. Wait. What what Jacoby perset set? What what what rob gras Garoppolo payday still found? They still find ways to win win the Super Bowl. Jimmy garoppolo. They would not. Well, he put up thirty. Pretty good. Would win every other day. Garoppolo to put up thirty three days still ost and back thousand eight bell. Check still had his fast asking when they loved their personable in two thousand seven how many Tom Brady to put up the average and thirty seven game to winning points team point. You'll be to tell me guy put up winning points. Fifty the luckiest plane the history of the super through one two down through one enough that should've stood really skill. Well, no, really did two minutes left. It's fourteen to relatives. Here. The team to seventeen points and low. Thank you. To help me out here. Okay. We're switching gears Jenkins defendant Colin Kaepernick yesterday. He also took a shot at the Jaguars. We'll discuss. Jenkins and Eric Reed got into it before Sunday's game and had to be separated read. It was the first to kneel with Colin Kaepernick back in twenty sixteen Jenkins led a coalition to fight against racial injustice after the game read call Jenkins, a sellout and said he quote co opted the movement that was started by calling to get his organization funded Jenkins and the eagles play the Jags on Sunday yesterday. He managed to support cap. Also calling out Jacksonville's quarterbacks. Let's hear it wholeheartedly. Believe is being blackballed to speak out and support people like put his job on the line to fight for those who didn't have voice, I've always maintaining every chance I get to save governator started. This leaves their job con- coupling could turn on the tape this week opponents company. Shannon. Do you like those comments from? I don't think it affects anything. I mean, he's stating the obvious. No one that follows football. This study's football understands book ball can honestly say Colin Kaepernick doesn't deserve a job, especially when you watch Nathan Peterman the buffalo when you watch the Brock Osweiler. When you watch Blake Bortles when you watch what's going on in Arizona's skill. You can't honestly say that those guys are better than Colin Kaepernick. Okay. Maybe he hadn't played in two years. But he deserved a job. And people are looking at well, it took him to look at Blake Bortles in the a lot of people saw that. And we know what cap doesn't have a job. It has nothing to do with ability to learn a defense, and well if you have to have because think about this the Baltimore Ravens selected Lamar Jackson thirty second overall Pete. If something would happen to Joe flacco, they're not running big fame for Joe flacco that they're going to run for Lamar Jackson. So theoretically, you could have two different office. If you have two different types of quarterback. So even though Hoyer Brian Hoyer as the backup in New England. They're not running the same. They're not calling the same place before that they call Tom Brady, we understand that. So yeah, did he take a shot at Blake Bortles shore? But coach took a shot in the week before. That's why down thirty four to get coach shot in. Get it done. And and he named starting Blake. Bortles ahead some success in London. Eight touchdowns two hundred seven maybe they should play more in London because he's been terrible for the most part. Linen jacksonville. We'll play in the continental United States. But what Malcolm Jenkins said, it's true. What Malcolm Jenkins said a lot of people knew to be true for very long is it going to have an effect on whether or not calling cabinet gets a job. No, so two things are operating here. Obviously. Eric read called out Malcolm Jenkins after the game. And he called him out to face before the game, which I deeply appreciate it. Because I do think there was some selling out of the Colin Kaepernick Eric Reed position for the coalition's position. Be that as it may Malcolm felt yesterday like he needed to look like he was supporting cap, so he gave a tip of the cap to cap by saying, oh, well, he obviously deserves a job, but he gave that tip of the cap at the expense of the team. They're about to play in the quarterback. They're going to have to deal with because you do have to deal with him like it or not. Now, you think he's flat out garbage? I don't I just think he's mediocre at that. He's okay. But you're not winning a championship. And this team is built to win. You are Philadelphia Eagles having to fly to London to play. A Blake Bortles who in four games. He's played in London is three and one with eight touchdowns to to interceptions. Is he better in London? I have no idea, but those are pretty good numbers by quarterback. Who can be pretty good on occasion? The problem with Blake Bortles is he can get kinda hot. And then a whole lot not when he goes not he is cold as he can get right now, he is slumping, but he has this history of snapping out of a slump when you least expect it and coming up big, and I'm gonna say it again last year, and I'm no Blake Bortles fan. I'm just spitting the facts back at you. He was fourteenth in QBR, which is right in the middle, which is not bad last year and he had four three hundred yard games. And he had a really good game at Pittsburgh when they just shocked the world he got a lot of the empty calories. The winning quarterback that day. Yes. He was. And did he have his team up twenty to ten in the fourth quarter? At Foxboro that's pretty good. Guess not garbage. I had he had them up. What I needed to make up late when I needed him to make throw. You're just mad because he lets you. Oh, yeah. I'm just I'm just giving you a fact, okay? I've seen a lot of we've covered a game long enough. To know you seeing guys make plays in the first half or early in the ball game. But every meaningful throat, okay? Every meaningful kit. They come England game to this year. I saw meaningful throws all over week. And by the way against the jets. He had an eighty one key bear threw for three hundred eighty eight yards that was their fourth game this year. So there's two big three hundred yard gains again, not garbage capable. And by the way, the eagles. Still the eagles Malcolm Jenkins. I'm asking are. They if you don't mind. I'm not finished. They are three and four and guess where they rank in pass defense fourth in the league in defending the pass can Blake Bortles take some advantage that and I'm going to remind you lost Leonard fournette, and he lost before the year started marquees leak, so he lost some weapons that he could be better with if you don't mind me asking skip how many quarterbacks this year. Have been benched during the course of the game that wasn't injured related. Well, he slumped, and I'm not saying that's the right move. Because you have an answer is Cody Kessler is that do you wanna go four because if you wanna go forward with Cody Kessler, then bencher starting quarterback and stick with Cody Kessler, do I don't agree with everything. Doug Marrone does. And we know that Dougie p doesn't a by the way Doug Marrone might have a little axe to grind this week. Right. Late word of data. What's the question? Exactly. What is the question to win the Super Bowl? No, we play into you. Well, I thought they were playing for what they gave him eighteen million because they said we got a Super Bowl defense to run game. Blake Bortles came real close to getting them to the Super Bowl getting them. That's Chiba with not yet is that what you playing for. So so in other words, you go into that was quite an achievement to get into bandit. Oh, where they go to get a degree. I just needed those babies. Do it just for my said is factor. So was your goal to get dependable. Oh graduate van to build. My goal was to just stay for one year. Exactly goal is to what he almost got us there. Well, how closely the this get you? See I am warning you when you least expect it. This guy's got some capabilities where he will just shock. You. Remember last year, he hung forty four Baltimore. Beffy Esco I highly capable in love it. I don't put anything past them. But guess what? They'll Malcolm Jenkins just district blatantly disrespecting it in the context of trying to elevate cap while. Wyss respecting if I Blake Bortles guess what I say look look look at the defense. The eagles it region had a job a long long time ago interest off ask if you all we look at what to get that. And I don't think Jacksonville gonna get back with their mouths, although never know about Jalen, it'll be real quietly. It'd been quite a reason maybe they're going to show it instead as talk it. Maybe there walked vote or you got. You got Blake Bortles. I'll take I'll take a walk into let me think about. Hey, you guys decided in the break. Coming up are the Texans starting to look like a contender in the NFC. We'll. Time for our final topic of the day. The Texans host the dolphins tonight on FOX Houston is rolling right now. They've won four straight games having given up more than sixteen points in their last three, Shannon. How far can the Texans go very far? Can they win the division? Yes. Because this is a terrible division. Remember the plane the last please schedule but terrible red zone teams. The second worst red zone team on offense and touchdown ratio. And the third worst defense so reds to terrible red zone teams offense and defense Kip. They don't go very far. And if they do get to the playoffs. They don't normally advance the first game. I don't see them playing a bad team. I expect them to win this game tonight. But I don't think they're gonna go very far because I don't think they're very good football team. I love the quarterback, and I don't bet against that quarterback. And if he can get reasonably healthy, he's hard to handle he's hard to deal with and they've won four and I look at their schedule. It's pretty easy last. So again, could they win eight of their last nine again, I need them to win at Washington. Add philly. Well, I'm saying, but could they win all the look at ask you? Okay. I'm just saying they could get a playoff home game. Yes. They win that game. Sure. They could then we would all depends on who they get it would depend on who they get. But could they advance at least one round sure they could. And then to Shawn Watson on the road. I don't know. He's boys. Really the bigger the stage the battery gets but normally terrible Rizzo teams, not very good. I mean, you're the second worst about what you say that guy that guy. Okay. You got watt and cloudy, shouldn't you be pretty good? You should be. But you are what says they are in the red zone percents that they're not there. They're not there. Thanks for listening to the podcast. I'm Jenny Taft. Join us again at the same time tomorrow morning, nine thirty eastern. We'll see you then.
