"Know how to spell that one if not I don't know turning out to be the most inspiring wells gas we've had Rashad Jennings on the show You just told this crazy story about being the fifth string running back and then scored four touchdowns in a game and Tennessee scowl seeing view and being like all right this kid can actually play which is just bonkers. You had a point six. GPA how does How does one get points? Why didn't you just go for the Buckshot and go for the zero point? Zero four zero. I guess they didn't want to give me zero Don't but now seriously a funny story to kind of explain why how two point six one we had a right. I love writing one time we had to write about our Had Essay paper ninth grade. We had to write about a hero. Yeah and I decided that that's on the right about Dr Martin Luther King We had to put it in. CLA format you. How to cite your sources right as a a paper yeah I go to the library and I gotta find some people that say what I think you know. I gotta find some good quotes and as as I'm looking in the library I can't find anybody says what I want to say So I got the bright idea to quote myself nice so I wrote down. Sometimes I thought I put it in quote Unquote Rashad Jenness. Then I wrote about what I thought about that quote so I decided you know I use myself and I wrote at the in of the paper my source was Rashad Jennings mine turn it in a big fat F F plus so I guess Phil Good about that. So that's why the point six but now And I go and I asked Miss Salman I ask US Emma Salman Why do I get a F and She said Reshad. Yeah you quoted yourself and I said is what I wrote on a paper true. She said yes I said is when a road and a paper relevant. She said yes. I said so what I get a f she said. Because you're not a credible source and I looked at us as you're telling me I gotta go do some Otley the amazing in this world twenty years from now just to come back say the same thing because true now is going to be true later. Yeah she looked at me. gave me my paper Kinda smile and it's every shot get out of here fast forward I'm an. NFL Did a lot of public speaking always dedicated an hour. Every Tuesday at doing community work and there was one teacher that knew me. She asked me to come in and speak to the class. That's because they were doing essay. Paper Professional Athletes Had to pick one favors and write about him and Says sure came in. I spoke to the classism. Speak in an answering questions I'm watching kids. Write down what I'm saying. Put It in quotation. Yeah instead of Reshad generates so I just got geeked up when I I saw it and my asset teacher said every a paper that quote was shot in his cannot please get a copy of it. Took every copy of that. A paper took it back to me Salman twenty years something later yeah slapped it on a desk to say check this out and She looked at. It had a big smile every shot. I knew us going to do some special Monday Sunday. I had a point six though because of it Then but I really did. I thought I was smarter than school. And I until somebody kind of like sit me down and really really explained. Listen you know you just gotTa get through it you just gotTa you got it right or wrong you gotta play the game with school and then once I figured out it was a game I played it. I got my grades. Up is amazing you went back and you probably pissed off your coach with what you what you said all his players and then you've really pissed off his well that's awesome. It's so funny okay. So then you you graduate from high school you go to college. Where'd you play? started off a Pittsburgh University up and Play there for one year started as a true freshman and How you went from junior year fifth-string to not even a red shirt? That's that's that's incredible. Yeah okay sorry. Continue on that for people that don't understand football like to play as a true freshman. That's bonkers doesn't happen very often. The and you had limited limited time running the ball in high school because you are on the bench the most time that's just crazy. Continue on. I'm sorry no you're totally good and Yes started their freshman year and was funny. Make it even funnier. I won freshman right out of the year award at Pittsburgh University. Descend that paper to Shirley did it's still hanging up in the school in a in a I want a road fifteen page paper about the word nothing. Yeah that's what one And so I transferred though because my dad it his illness and sickness he has diabetes and I at the time he had to get his leg amputated. Yeah and so I wanted to be closer to home. You know Nineteen years old at the time. All our newest family. They've been there for me forever. I figured I could transfer and be there for closer to home for three more years And and so I went to liberty. University Liberty is ten minutes from my house and saw finish their three years and then was drafted. NFL in two thousand nine To the Jacksonville. The Jaguars played there for years. Oakland Raiders for one the New York giants for three. What do you consider yourself? Are you a giant. Are you a Jag or are you a writer. Esa S. two. I'm I'm all Retired as a giant all-purpose though You know I'm grateful for Jacksonville believing me give him giving me my first. I shot and You Know Oakland when I signed there for one year deal that was kind of like a prove yourself deal I was almost on my way out of the League. And they gave me another chance and Giants as kind of where I made my name. Yeah Song kind of bias there and one of the greatest organizations top to bottom To work for four and as the Mecca of everything. Yeah and so I I feel like I feel like for being from force Virginia right and then and then and I and then get into chance to play an NFL.

You had a point six. GPA how does How does one get points? Why didn't you just go for the Buckshot and go for the zero point? Zero four zero. I guess they didn't want to give me zero Don't but now seriously a funny story to kind of explain why how two point six one we had a right. I love writing one time we had to write about our Had Essay paper ninth grade. We had to write about a hero. Yeah and I decided that that's on the right about Dr Martin Luther King We had to put it in. CLA format you. How to cite your sources right as a a paper yeah I go to the library and I gotta find some people that say what I think you know. I gotta find some good quotes and as as I'm looking in the library I can't find anybody says what I want to say So I got the bright idea to quote myself nice so I wrote down. Sometimes I thought I put it in quote Unquote Rashad Jenness. Then I wrote about what I thought about that quote so I decided you know I use myself and I wrote at the in of the paper my source was Rashad Jennings mine turn it in a big fat F F plus so I guess Phil Good about that. So that's why the point six but now And I go and I asked Miss Salman I ask US Emma Salman Why do I get a F and She said Reshad. Yeah you quoted yourself and I said is what I wrote on a paper true. She said yes I said is when a road and a paper relevant. She said yes. I said so what I get a f she said. Because you're not a credible source and I looked at us as you're telling me I gotta go do some Otley the amazing in this world twenty years from now just to come back say the same thing because true now is going to be true later. Yeah she looked at me. gave me my paper Kinda smile and it's every shot get out of here fast forward I'm an. NFL Did a lot of public speaking always dedicated an hour. Every Tuesday at doing community work and there was one teacher that knew me. She asked me to come in and speak to the class. That's because they were doing essay. Paper Professional Athletes Had to pick one favors and write about him and Says sure came in. I spoke to the classism. Speak in an answering questions I'm watching kids. Write down what I'm saying. Put It in quotation. Yeah instead of Reshad generates so I just got geeked up when I I saw it and my asset teacher said every a paper that quote was shot in his cannot please get a copy of it. Took every copy of that. A paper took it back to me Salman twenty years something later yeah slapped it on a desk to say check this out and She looked at. It had a big smile every shot. I knew us going to do some special Monday Sunday. I had a point six though because of it Then but I really did. I thought I was smarter than school. And I until somebody kind of like sit me down and really really explained. Listen you know you just gotTa get through it you just gotTa you got it right or wrong you gotta play the game with school and then once I figured out it was a game I played it. I got my grades. Up is amazing you went back and you probably pissed off your coach with what you what you said all his players and then you've really pissed off his well that's awesome. It's so funny okay. So then you you graduate from high school you go to college. Where'd you play? started off a Pittsburgh University up and Play there for one year started as a true freshman and How you went from junior year fifth-string to not even a red shirt? That's that's that's incredible. Yeah okay sorry. Continue on that for people that don't understand football like to play as a true freshman. That's bonkers doesn't happen very often. The and you had limited limited time running the ball in high school because you are on the bench the most time that's just crazy. Continue on. I'm sorry no you're totally good and Yes started their freshman year and was funny. Make it even funnier. I won freshman right out of the year award at Pittsburgh University. Descend that paper to Shirley did it's still hanging up in the school in a in a I want a road fifteen page paper about the word nothing.

And then there's another one Nathan to you know, where a holding penalty and Richard Jennings's walked on the set. And so. Back again. Nathan. Thank you. The holding penalty. So that's the ultimate gray area. Right. Ofensive holding. You can call that on every play just the same way that you can call foul on every play in the NBA to right. I think so it's the the art of the hand goes into the breastplate and pull down that's got to be clear and obvious or the around the shoulder pulling the hug, right? Yes. When you tackle a guy that's telling you like there's ways to to to codify it. And there will be an unintended consequence that we're not thinking of. But it's better than a consequence of the entire country seeing that and it's better than the consequence of people who we've met Wendell Pierce before. Okay. Who was on the show yesterday, the actor from the wire and Tra may and all these other great movies and television shows that he's been in. We've met him before. Passionate guy, but a normal regular human being correct at times it sounded like and I say again with the ultimate respect it sounded yesterday. The conspiracy theories thrown out to try and fill the void of the bizarre. Consequence of that not being called sound like had like a tin foil hat or said at times, but some of the stuff that you're not so fans are just so worked up some are gonna turn it off which don't want. I still profiting say it will be a record audience for the Super Bowl. But. I'd rather have the unintended consequence than this. Again.
