"That. Email. Stevens email should have done it, but I forgot it was going to play today. So Daniel, your organ is an oil analyst, and he's one of the smartest guys out there. Additionally, He's great historian of business, and he wrote the ultimate book on the entire history of the oil industry, and it's still It's called the prize, and it's still in print all these decades later, because if you care about the modern times and what actually Was the energy that propelled modern times its oil industry and he had it all. It's great stuff. But in this he's talking about the future for electric cars. And he goes just a decade and a half ago, CEO of General Motors Rick Wagoner. Observed Larry Burns that time head of GM research and strategy that not many industries stay the same for an entire century. But the automobile industry had so far been the exception. Gas fuelled run by internal combustion engines, four wheels. What's the carve the next 100 years going to look like now? Notice, he said a decade and a half ago. That was the exact same year. They'd asked me to write an outside review on hydrogen fuel cell cars that GM and I didn't take it as seriously as I should have. But I dashed off nine pages didn't even send it to my editor. So who knows how many mistakes were in it? But it basically was history of GM Alfred Sloan, the legendary chair of General Motors. While GM did have research and design studios on many things, Alfred Sloan wouldn't spend the money. As he kept telling his people. Sooner. Everybody else going to spend money on this stuff. And when they figured out will simply by the patent rights and make it a case in point. Safety glass. You know, everybody expects that on the car today, but people forget in the earliest days I had tempered glass. You could have an accident. And your glass shattered and you had massive glass shards all over you. So we knew. And remember this also in the day without really good roads, so you could be going down the road and your buggy. Here to mud pit on that dirt road after rainstorm, and you could twist the car and shattered the glass and when windshield So Sloane says somebody else. Let them spend the money on creating a glass of won't do that. And we'll by the patent rights. Well, it was the Ford Motor Company that came up with it. And GM simply started making it too. And that was hydrogen fuel cell cars going back to the story. Daniel Jurgen recently was talking to Wagner about that conversation, and Rick said I was asking if we were starting the auto industry today. How would it be different? Because we're fundamentally building the same product we made over 100 years ago. And so automakers is Daniel points at her committing tens of billions of dollars over the next decade to electric vehicle development. They're shifting a vast industrial and consumer ecosystem. There is so basic to the economy, this can do nothing but face big challenges. They said. The result, he says, the result of the share of new cars that wound up being EVs by 2030. Probably is going to be no more than 25%. If everything goes well. In any case, he talks about 2000 and eight and the first Tesla Roadster. He said. The time it looked like a novelty car, If you recall, I think it was a body by lotus and suspension, wasn't it? But he points out. It was also over $100,000. But here's how Tesla came to be. Five years earlier, a young electric vehicle enthusiast JB Stroble, had lunch with a guy named Elon Musk in Los Angeles. He was trying to pitch Elon Musk, uh, on an electric airplane. When Musk had no interest in that whatsoever, he switched over to electric car. The original idea championed by Thomas Edison more than a century ago. Here's the thing. Thomas Edison wanted great. A car for the masses. He's the one the first said that an electric car by the way. And here's electric battery was actually light years ahead of its time. Nothing like we have today, but it was light years ahead of its time. When he never got that electric car off the ground. Henry Ford, who would later become his friend stole his line about the car for the masses. Put it on his model T I digress. In 2000 and eight musk jumped on the idea. And some years later must said that without that luncheon that day, Tesla wouldn't exist Basically. That car was over 100,000 and it was a disaster. If you doubt that Google George Cloney comma Tesla comma type in the F word. And see if that car wasn't a disaster. That was a Reuters story by the way. In any case, the Nissan Leaf came out in 2010. It predated the Tesla. General Motors came out with the Chevy Volt. By the way, my paper talking about maybe hydrogen fuel cell cars might be a reality in 2050. But if you think you're bringing it to market and another five years that's not going to happen. Um, GM followed up that with the Chevy bolt with a B in 2016. In any case he talks about the V shift is, in fact picking up speed. The European Union's proposing tough regulations on carbon dioxide emissions from cars made or sold in Europe that effectively bans the sale of new cars. With internal combustion engines after 2035. That's right. You can dial down your mandate for missions out of automobiles, and you can make it where internal combustion engines can't perform that way anymore. California, Massachusetts of announced also dates they want to get rid of it. In Shanghai, China, They offer free license plates for if you buy what they call a new energy vehicle, an electric car. If you buy a gas powered car in Shanghai, you.

"We passed eleven hundred seventy two bills on the house side session. Double what we typically pass about half of them made it in the law through the senate so that darn it was remarkably. I know like. I said half so is remarkably productive time i loved it. I enjoyed it. He obviously drove me nuts. Sometimes with just the things he does but nevertheless it was a remarkably productive time and so it was basically you went from loyal opposition power-sharing with obama to executing in unified government with trump and the in a little more hands on in the executive branch the legislative branch typically would because of the nature of his presidency. Yeah that's a great lesson leadership right there and that you knew you knew your audience. And he found a way to communicate. And that's i failed power points with him before. I really don't do that so i just did. A gantt chart and he's like. Oh yeah we use these great. So i want to switch to some policy issues that we're talking about here at the bush today. One of our panels was just talking about an issue of key issues of globalization and economic opportunity. In sort of the the the pros and cons. We see where we know that trade is good for our country but it can impact communities and very significant ways where they don't see the benefits of trade and your everybody knows. You're from janesville. Wisconsin in janesville has gone through. Its own transition. come out. The other side largely talk about that. Tell that story of what's going on. Yeah i mean. I think i think there are those who would like to come up with a quick answer. Maybe for scapegoat reasons or ovaries. It's it's just the inter. Unfortunately it's complicated. Trade is a part of it. But it's really more technology technology janesville. I grew up in in a gm town. Half my high school buddies went to work there. Most my friend's dad's worked there the day. The plant shutdown remember rick wagoner calls me in my kitchen. I'm looking at my back window. Two of my neighbors. That i'm looking at works there and i was looking into their kitchen windows a so it. It really really affected our town in the early days when they had seven thousand people. There was people doing everything then. Robotics came in went down to like twenty five hundred p. Three thousand people so technology that wasn't trade. They still made the same stuff it was. You went from seven thousand. Three thousand workforce because of robots. So there's that and then frankly in this particular case trade wasn't the issue is four dollars gas it was it was gasoline of time and suburbans tahoes or what we made and they also make here in arlington texas and that arlington plant was fairly new and ours was eighty five years old and they consolidated into one.

"A very high stakes game of chicken. Is the simplest Packers have to come to the realization he's not coming back and then therefore go get their best deal. Um, sort of. I think they already realized that, though, because this is the situation, despite not having been in the media, up until about a few days ago, has been going on for months. I can tell you that the Rams made an offer and try to try to go get him. There's some back channel conversations they had with him prior to trading for Matt Stafford on the Green Bay rebuffed it at that time Niners did to the Niners did the day before the traffic. The Rams did it before the Stafford deal, and so they've been trying to. They've been trying to get him and bring him in. For a while. The Packers have been flying out there trying to talk to him all this kind of stuff. I think as long as Brian good against is there, there's no way or Rogers comes back. This is just good against or is it Mark Murphy as well? I think that he's Personal animus is with Brian Good against. I think that would Mark Murphy could be patched up. And he had Murphy have had conversations between February and now, But I think that there's Animosity with more than one party, but the split or the hard sell is with good goods. What about John James and the Broncos? What do they do there? That's a tough situation, especially after he kind of he was working out at the Broncos facility. And then when the Players association decided to do this arbitrary, ot a boycott thing, Hey, went along with the team, even though he disagreed with it went home and started working out. And when you're working from off site, you're not covered under team insurance. So he wiped out five million and injury protections and 10 million in salary and he ended up really hurting himself on that one. The Broncos. I mean, I talked a couple Bronco sources. They're very, you know, empathetic. But right now that situation is one where he sees he and the players have really kind of set themselves up for failure in the players Union massively overplay their hand. Not all the players were on board with not doing these OTA is I can tell you that right? It was not Wasn't he wanting to do the O T. A S was that he's not the only guys like Alexander Johnson. These guys were showing up there, guys, they're showing up. They just agreed not to talk about it to kind of keep the unified the perception of a unified front. But there I could tell you that locker room was upset about it. And there were guys in that locker room and said We were five win football team, the optics of not showing up for opiates While we're trying to make a power grab on something we didn't collectively bargain. Eyes is bad and JC trader and some of these guys have massively overplay their hand on this, and they're gonna get a lot of pushback this week because of John James was gonna get this could get really sticky with the union. It could get really sticking with you. So if you had to make a prediction will the Broncos Say sorry. You know, we feel bad, but we need this money to get another right tackle. If I'm predicting something, I suggest that they probably what the Eagles did with Jason Peters a few years ago, which has reached a settlement half um yeah, reach reach a settlement. You carry him on the roster and its equitable for everybody. You get cap savings. He gets some of his money. Nobody's the bad guy in it. You know, when you go forward from there, it's not one report that said it's a season indeed. Injurious another report this So what? Maybe there's a chance. He can come back. Is it a Tauron? Achilles? Yes and partially corn's not fully tourney, And there is some optimism that he could be back for the final month of the season. Give or take talked with my Garofalo, who put that out The second report. Talk with him yesterday, and it seems like that's the hope. But that's more of a hope that a medical diagnosis I'll just say based on The fax that we have That would seem highly unlikely to make and it's Z is more hope and wishful thinking that I think it is anything else. So with the Broncos have any interest in a Gallic Mitchell Schwartz or Charles Leno or what do they do it right tackle. Those are two names that are out there. I don't think Leno's gonna be one of them talked to somebody yesterday they hadn't reached out to him yet with Mitchell Schwartz. I talked to his brother Jeff yesterday for quite a bit, and Mitch is still rehabbing. He's not ready to play. So even if they reach out to that, that's kind of a giant question. Mark still has some back issues, some other names that are out there right now that I would suggest Rick Wagoner, Audie Massey. The more Dotson could be brought back, although I think that's kind of an emergency option and then Cam Fleming and Dennis Kelly would be other. They're going to bring some guys in this week and kind of take a look and see where they're at and go from there. So Mitchell Schwartz. He had a back issue that he's still rehabbing. Yeah, he's still rehabbing that back issue last year's Iranian play in the Super Bowl, and he's contemplating retirement. And the rest of these guys. Anybody stand out to you other than him. Cam plaints. Dawson's old. I mean, he did a fairly good job last year. Yeah, but he's old. Yeah, Dotson's a fun guy. He's good in the locker room, but you can't You literally can't run the screen game to his side..

"But, yeah, the best thing about this golf deal outside of the two first round picks. It's a team option. After a year to with Jared Goff. It's not like got to go. I'm gonna act in for 60 year. No, the team can say you know what if you blow chunks you're out of here. And if God I mean Look at your golf are the 85% of the league would take jerk offs, a starting quarterback. I mean, this guy is still a legit young quarterback that one team has given up on and Sean McVeigh in him didn't have the best relationship. He does things. That may be a new situation. We see these guys all the time, they need a new spot. The new offense, and Tyler Weaver and I were talking off the air. Your golf is a systematic quarterback. Look what he had Todd Gurley. The man was a beast. People were saying that you know, he's gonna future MVP's gonna win a lot of Super Bowls out there. What he lost that they just expected chair got to go out there and start throwing 80 yard bombs to Robert Woods downfield as he waves good bye to the defense. That's not gonna happen. So now Jared Goff has it as a chance to kind of, you know, restart and rebrand his own career here in Detroit and with the fresh Coaching staff, and Anthony Lynn is the new offensive coordinator. That's going to change things around with the young running back to India and Greece with I'm excited for it. Let's get across the border and speak with cowboy in Windsor. What's going on, man? Good afternoon, boys and explain it for it to correspond to staff will be 33 tomorrow because I mean Gossens Basson Stafford Statistics were pretty similar over the last four years that I know God had all sorts of weapons over there any any Suppose that offensive genius in the case, But I guess I don't know what happened to him was injuries. I think he was injured for a lot of the last couple of years. Then he fell on a favor. With McVeigh and I think that over here, you banking now, Anthony Luna was a heck of a of an offensive coordinator before he sort of bombed out with the Chargers. But like if he can put together something plus with the two number one draft choice is we're gonna get We can start to work on our on our defense, which was horrid last year, and it's only a two year Ah, situation with golf. I mean, if he fails to improve or anything, he'll be out of here. And then they can draft their quarterback of the future. Maybe in 2023, you know Stafford. Well, an ex Stanford is a pretty good chance of baby. Going places over there with the Rams because, as you mentioned they have, you know Erin Donald other great defensive players over there. And so I think there's a There's a chance that you know, we might see Stafford. Maybe in May be the next Super Bowl, or 57 or something. Yeah, I think this is a good trade both ways, But I think it's gonna end might help the wine's even Maura overall in the in the long run, because God's only 26. As I said before, I think he's I think he's gonna improve enough that he's gonna be a good if not greater. Um, you know, like Tom Brady Laker of Patrick, my home, play quarterback and have a good Ah, have a good week, boys. See you later. Cow weighed Windsor lot to say last to break down there. Here's the thing Ryan about Matthew staffer If he goes through a right situation, quote unquote like Ella thinks that they have their guide to win. You know, multiple championships is staff for the guy to get him there. Yeah, I think so. I mean, he, you know, the one thing that he didn't have in Detroit was besides, Caldwell was coaching. I mean, he had A boatload of coaches, and they just you know, I never got the job done. And that's one thing that the Chargers have. And they also have a defense, which he really hasn't had, Um He did have a He had a great defense. What? 2014 number two Defense number two defense like, but again, I think it just comes down to You know the coaching aspect? He he was never put in a situation win all their games. They had to come from behind you. That should never happened. I mean, they get they get off to these 7 14 Point leads. And then all of a sudden you're down 18 points like how does that happen? And I don't think that's gonna happen in l A. So I think. You know, he has a good chance to say, Take the ramps of the Promised land. Yeah, I mean, like we've seen the Matthew Stafford like you just said he's never had an elite play collar at head coach or offensive coordinator position. We had Joe Lombardi and we bought it heads with and that they switch over to Jim Bob Cooter, and things are great and then all their button heads again, and the offense is it's horrible and it's predictable. And then they move on to Darrell Bevell, which I mean in the 2019 season. It seemed like okay, he's letting unmarried out. It's kind of like back in 2011. When they were just let him throw the ball. He's strong for 5000 yards. He gets hurt. He comes back and more conservative by the same thing this year. But maybe shepherd like he's ever had an elite collar like Frank Reich or John McVeigh. So I'm interested to see when he has this elite coach. Are they gonna butt heads? Are they gonna mesh? Well, That's my thing. I'm really interested to see that from Matthew Stafford. Because McVeigh is, you know, the golden poster child of the head coaching style in the in the NFL. You know, Finn, photographic memory offensive genius, and Stafford has never had that. I think he's a legit quarterback. That's gonna you know, has still five or six really good years left in the league. If staying healthy. I think the guy is injury. Probably. He's never really had an offensive line, you know. Rick Wagoner stepped on his knee and you twisted ankle or, you know, bump into Taylor Decker's helmet with his ring finger, and it is always having constant nagging injuries. And hopefully l A keeps, um, keeps them healthy. But Jared Goff is not this, You know, Week Southern Cal kid. I mean, look at his, you know, look at his body workout in l A. He was stick in the pocket. He's kind of mobile. Um, not the best arm not even close to what Matthew Stafford has. But maybe that's maybe that's good. You know, maybe not taking shots. Every three plays downfield, Quintus. Safest. We'll change things up here. Hopefully it gets Haakenson more involved, too. On just short kind of tight end routes. Yes, I mean, we We saw this year they didn't they? You know, they go to him like three times in a row, and then you won't see him the rest of the game. And, you know, it's just hurt My fantasy team last year, you tell you hark incident. Swift are big on fantasy draft boards next year, Regardless of whose quarterback there we had a lot of dump off, Charlie, check down through for sure. For sure. Jeff. I'm afraid before we hit the brake. What's great this Matthew Stafford trade let agree that comes to mind What degrading Brad homes in the new regime in Detroit. This'll greatest specifically from Alliance fan. I gotta give it a day plummets a Grand Slam trade. I mean, you couldn't ask for a better trade from both sides were out. If your Rams fan you could be looking at like Yeah, we gotta win because we haven't had a first round pick about four years so that it's different from the fifth. Rams might be great like a B. I mean, let's see what Matt could do but us Lions fans. We know what that could do. So I mean, we give it a day. I mean golf was given a chance. Um, his ability like you said to throw downfield is questionable. I mean, that Zen. That doesn't really matter like you said. I mean, at the end of the day, we just had a guy a system quarterback,.

"They come in a tree form so you could have like a trunk and then folded on top or a trump form. But e mean I hear people talk about that plant over and over. And you think mainly, just is it easy to take care of I don't think so. But you don't think so. It could be over water. You have to be really careful on the water. And Jack talked earlier about that. So fatally figs. If they're over water, they don't. They don't like that. They get old man. It's just so Yeah. One attended underwater that. What about light for a fiddle leaf?

You don't have a credit. Don't don't. So what? Yeah, that's usually a good sign. Because generally when we do have houseplants somebody has died. Oh, boy, And that's how Yanks you know it's true truth. It's true. Listen, my father in law died five years ago and one of my partners got me this beautiful ivy. And some some beautiful plants. I took it after the dome planted it. It's still going, so I just called the plant Daddy Bob s. Oh, there you go. I mean, But you're right. That's when we normally get plans. Yeah, that's not gonna I can honestly say And, you know, I'm s so if I wanted to take one plant home shock, what would it be? Something that's easy with me that we have kind of. Ah, baby. Nice bow window. Well, I would say something that matches his personality like a prickly pear. We do have that some are today. I'm prickly Pears. Oh, my God. Yeah, but Anyway, problem, maybe a post those plant, you know the heart shaped leaves. They're really easy to grow. Anyone can grow on. So if you're except the one the string of hearts that comes down well, that's similar to that OK, little bit different than that. But the Po Po's comes in like a has a green and white variegated leaf or playing Greenlee for shark. Cruise color lead, and they're easy. So for the beginner houseplant person, this feel there's wonderful plant for them. Yeah, both those both those? Yeah, All right. And how does that come to sign a six inch ponder? Yeah, but is it hanging it could be in a hanging basket so you could hang it from somewhere in your home or comes in a six or eight inch plant that you put on a window sill on your Under table very easy to grow.

"It's an alleged offense, genius. Of course, your guy drives me insane. Let's just put that on the record. You're not alone. Enough nuts. Don't claim to be smart guy and then do ridiculous things. That just defy analytics like I can't. I can't handle it. Plus who wears advisor at night? It makes no sense. But when you when you look at Campbell, here's the thing. I don't I don't care about winning the press conference, right? As long as you don't go full Adam Gates. We'll just chalk it up. Where this really what it comes down to. And Brad Holmes and John Dorsey. Can they get candle talent if you give NFL coaches enough talent? It ends up mattering Very little. Who the coaches This is this is still you gotta have the thoroughbreds to run the race. And the Lions roster is putrid. They do not have talent. Bob Quinn executed one of the great Khan's in NFL history. And he was clueless from the beginning, and he's taken this franchise on the slow descent into really Expansion level. You know again, I'll ask you questions. How many guys on the lines could start for the Bears right now either side of the ball Not many, I'd argue, right. Could you find five and and no disrespect? There's a better than the lions. But the Bears are far from elite. That's the problem so They got to get players. I think Campbell getting a six year deal, and we, of course, I mean, look what we do for a living. We read into things we have to. Um, it was no accident. Campbell got a six year deal because anything less I don't think he takes the job. You look at it on paper, and you go. What do you want me to do with this? You know, three of them three years out of my five year deal are going to be a complete waste because we have to go backwards. Before we go forward. They have no cap space. They're going to cut people like Mark. It's true font, Justin Coleman, Nick Williams. I think in a year we'll cut that disaster. Vie ties will probably get rid of flowers and you're starting at square one. So look, Campbell's got a long road ahead of him. It's not an accident, but this really comes down to Brad Holmes is accurate in you look at his drafts in L. A You know the players he's recommending the less need to take operating without a first round pick seemingly every year. If Brad Homes delivers the talent Campbell beat can will be all right. You got to be a pretty bad coach to screw up big talent. But I just don't know enough about the guy and sure you come in. You talk like Hulk Hogan. You get everybody's pants on fire that that you know, that doesn't work for me. That's that's whatever if you're boring, but you win. I'll like you Justus much. Nobody wants a guy who rolls in. Punches the podium like Danny Green and loses, Nobody cares. So that's all sizzle. I want steak. So we're talking to Mike Valentia covers the Detroit Lines is the star of Detroit Sports Radio. Danny Amendola has played for the Lions. He's been with the Patriots. This morning he was doing a TV show. This is what he said. Quote When you see the Patriot way in the dictionary, it's got Tom Brady's picture next to it. None of those coaches have ever caught any passes. Tom Brady is the Patriot way. That's why he's playing this Sunday in the Super Bowl and the Patriots. Current when you hear a quote like that that is a direct shot why Matt Stafford had zero interest in playing for Bill Belichick. Well, you also got to remember who's back in New England now. Matt. True failure and a horrific human being is a college in that, Patricia. He was horrible. I mean, he walked in the door, telling players he'll ask themselves when he walked in the door and basically had a verbal assault on an all pro corner and various lake and I can't even repeat what he said on the air. Um, he alienated every veteran and it was a disaster from the start. So I think for perfect staff, it was pretty simple. I'll go anywhere but don't send me there. I'm not working with that guy. I'm not working for that guy and frankly at 33. Couple years of prime left. I don't want to go on playing nasty weather. I don't want to go to part of the country minister and I don't want to be Submissive to this system. I wanna go play for someone want to collaborate. I wanna be unequal. I think that those are all factors. But the Brady thing guys like Amanda was going to stick up for his friend. Plus, it's player to player versus coach to coach. We gotta calm down with this whole idea like Brady's driving the bus for Tampa Bay. Have you watched him in the playoffs? Have you seen the teams they've played? Calm down five of 14 in the second half with three picks. Calm down. You know your defense is the one driving the bus. They're handing you the ball on the 23 times again, you know, let let's let's just Power down a little here. Yeah. Brady drove the bus for a long time in New England, but he also had a lot of help. They had amazing defense is and the defense is the architect of those is still Les Miserables. Bill Belichick, So we need to calm down to me, honey. All right. We appreciated my Cody like on Sunday. Unfortunately, I am very afraid that Brady is going to be carried to a Super Bowl and I will have to listen to the media. Just Chinese shoes all year. I look, Kansas City's missing both tackles, right. We know Schwartz was probably not gonna play anyways. Losing Eric Fisher to an Achilles. They're going to enter this game down there left and right tackles. Obviously, they're down a Pro Bowl caliber guard already with Duvernay. So like you're gonna put those guys up against Jack there and up against J P p and and really when you factor in what guys like Devin whiter doing, there's just that is a havoc machine up front for Tampa Bay. And you sought against Green Bay. You saw how they exposed Rick Wagoner. Right? And nobody Chiari. Want the Chiefs to win so bad I I needed like oxygen. I'm really am afraid that they are going to compromise my home. Start you or am I crazy? I'm rooting for the I'm rooting for Kansas City. I think I think I can't take any more bomb rooting for Tampa. Yeah. God. How about this? Can we just get a competitive game worth watching? Please? Yes. Great. Great. All I want I think we will, like got to me the cancer. The Chiefs are like the Golden State warriors when they were good. It's like watching basketball in cleats. I think they're that good. If they're behind, I expected to come back in the ball game. No matter how good time was defensive, I think the big thing to it's an underrated factor. And, yeah, I'm a Giants fan so guilty as charged but likes bags. You know their D C. He's unlocked the key to beating Brady in the Super Bowl and its aggression. You have to get Tom to move his feet, not run, but move his feet. Take his eyes down for a minute, moving the pocket if you can force him to just get Half a tick off schedule. His numbers fall apart. Green Bay couldn't do it. I mean, I just They got no pressure Credit. Tampa's a line. But Patton also fell asleep for half a game it Kansas City is gonna be aggressive and they can actually crack the wall. That's their secret to getting this done because you're not going to let Tom drop back on time on schedule and and what you think he's just going to go simply 40% of his best. So that that's another angle to stags knows what to do, and I think he's got the players to do it. Hey, man, have a great day, Big fan. Thanks, guys. Take care of yourself. You too Well, Seeing Mike, there is Michael Valenti.

"Sports leader. Dante Whitner will join us in about 12 minutes. His assessment of championship Sunday, speaking of Fox's released their numbers best rating for a telecast of any kind since Super Bowl 54 40, Niners and Chiefs. 5% over last year's NFC Championship game. Packers. 40 Niners top markets Not surprising Milwaukee Tampa Providence, Kansas City, Boston So Patriots fans were watching Tom Brady. Big number. So as I thought, and this is all based usually on the time slot, but more attractive because it's you know. Brady versus a Rod. So did of Tampa Green Bay. Game out out rate the Buffalo Kansas City again. Don't know. Fox is just saying what their numbers were, which is a 26.5 and 54 overall rating. And it is their most watched program since the Super Bowl. That's all they've provided. So I don't I have not seen the FC numbers. Yeah, I mean, usually, though, the later time slot you know that kicks off six wives 60 minutes to great ratings Sunday night of their time slot is that whatever more eyeballs around watching TV it's a great show and has been for a long time. But that The late window on championship Sunday, usually out rates. But I thought in this particular case because Green Bay in Tampa Bay and the star power the quarterbacks may Undoing Buffalo's a small market. Kansas City is a small market as well. But They got a lot of star power with with my home so as far as the games just, you know, Green Bay got back into the game. They got off to just Ah, horrible, horrible Start. I just could not get off the field. On third down, they did come back on the on the TV past of Aldous can't language was impressive. But then they came right back, just terrible tackling on for next touchdown. Just not played. Well, it all Rashaan Gary jumped inside joke here, Alexander and make a one on one tackle Couldn't make it. It just didn't play. Well. We talked about the Atrocious Mike Pet and call, and Dante knows Mike Button. Well, they were all together in Cleveland when Dante was a player, and Mike was the head coach and Kyle was the O. C. Pal Shanahan. I don't know what he was doing on that coverage to play look like a cover one hole. About it, Um, just to leave King young corner from the Bay Area. Bishop O'Dowd, Desmond King out there alone was just terrible. And the floor is getting criticized for the field goals. I I agreed with them. I just didn't have a lot of confidence. What I would question is the go as we mentioned earlier going for the two point conversion after Davante Adams touchdown made a 28 23. Kicked the extra point pull within four. Then then, when they make their field goal, which they made, you're still within seven. You don't have to get to And I think that was bothering him in his choice later and then the lack of Ah offensive line protection for Aaron Rodgers want Aaron Rodgers. Has played badly, John and it was this year against Tampa Bay. We saw it And we saw it twice last year in as the 40 Niners, which well of on Sunday night Football. The A F C championship game is the pass rush when you can get to him at the pass rush. Then he's not a rod and back Tr EES injury They overcame in a little bit, But then you know, moving Turner from right tag of the left tackle Rick Wagoner got picked on both edges. We're not secure Jpp and a monstrous game. Obviously shack Baird of monstrous Game the two inside guys so envied Avai ever He just couldn't run the ball and I fight to criticize anything. If you might fatten him, we'll hear what Dante has to say about that. And then the lack of protection plan. Just not give Baird and J P p short corners, you know, go out and Max, protect and then the other thing, and we'll get to Buffalo. The two best route runners you can say who's the best wide receiver in football? They're all so different, but the two best route runners. I'm gonna check Keenan Allen out of it. Is he didn't make the playoffs. He's great as well. But Davante Adams since two findings of the two best route runners and football, and I Why Davante Adams wasn't featured more In the game and hear this moments here and there a charge of them 15 times, but he only had 67 yards in the game. The one touchdown I, You know, there's a way to just scheme and to get him open and let him he's just tough, difficult to deal with. And then the second game. It's Stefan Diggs. Basically a no show when I know we got body slammed you get the soup, Lex throw down And then after that, he kind of disappeared. You got going later in the game, but I thought it was. I thought those were two guys that really were difficult, especially with certain schemes of hiding him and stacking him and bunching them. And, you know, motioning them like they did. What? Devante against Jalen Ramsey the week before on the touchdown, the Jerry rice route, you know, how do you defend that route? You can't when he's going in and return motion the yo yo route can cover Yo, yo, but I thought they both played 40 yesterday, and I'm not sure if it was the scheme to get him open..

"Defense needed to do was find room for one final stop single receiver to the right set back to the right side of Terry Goff. Here's the snap. Looking downfield. He steps up on their pressure, he said. Christiane Jerry collapsed on the play with help. I believe from Kenny Clarke. Yes, it has a worker's takeover. 32 18, the final Green Bay's sixth consecutive win, setting up Sunday's NFC championship game against the Buccaneers. The man who will have the call on Sunday, the man behind the highlights. We just played his voice of the Packers. Wayne Larvae. More of that, Wayne. I just have more highlights. Like what? All we just played some running the football and deep shot to Alan Lazard. I'm not picky Throat to MVS if you'd like. The Packers offense is certainly grooving going into the NFC championship game. Yeah, they're playing really well, Greg, especially during the seven game winning streak, You know, very high level and that defense they took apart last week. I mean, they made the Rams look bad, You know 480 some yards of offense against the number one defense. They're not playing as good. A defense overall. This week is they did last week, but this Tampa Bay team is very talented. How do you feel differently Going into NFC Championship game this year versus last I feel the Packers have a better than 50 50 chance of winning. I didn't think they had any chance last year, and I didn't think they had any chance when they got to Atlanta in 2016. You know, I think Super Bowl depth is something weighing that I've noticed, And it's not significant pickups. But it's adding Truman Williams. It's adding Jared Bell dear if he ends up factoring in its adding stacks, Harrison In others. It seems like you have to have Super Bowl death. You have to be able to account for guys who have gone down and the Packers. Maybe in no other area or aspect of the team have done. It is well. As the offensive line that this still to me is maybe the unsung story of the year with this team. Yeah, I would agree, Greg, with all the changes, they've had four different lines that they've had to roll out there. And exactly right. I think the scheme is help, but also, hey, these guys have played well, I mean, You look at Billy Turner and what he's been able to do. Hey, gets over to the hot corner and and you know, he faces the best. Now the Bachtiar ease down and you know, Turner was considered someone know if you've read pro football focus as I do. He was raided the weak spot of the Packers offensive line at right guard last year. Well this year he's a strength on this line because he's played so many different positions. I think the versatility of Elton Jenkins, the All Pro Guard, you know he could play center. He could play either side of the pivot position. He can play tackle. You know these guys, This is really been great. I think the pickup of Rick Wagoner was very good. He's a solid guy who knows how to play in this league, and there was a point in his career. He was the highest paid tackle in the right tackle in the game. So you you're you've got great versatility. I agree with you wholeheartedly. The offensive line has gone unsung this season, but they are the reason why the Packers are where they are. Wait. I know it was a number of weeks ago. It was early in the season. So much has changed since then. But I can't seem to shake the 38 to 10 feeling not that that's going to happen again this weekend, but there are certainly things that Tampa Bay can do. To make life difficult for the Packers. When you look at the matchup and for the NFC Championship game for the one back in week six. What's the biggest difference from the Packers from Week? 62 now? Well, I think Davante Adams said it best They're able to make mortgage in game adjustments. Now they're just further along in the season, they can adjust to things that may or may not happen in the game on the fly and You know, That's one of the one thing. The other factors this what jumped out at me and I watch one pack and watch the game twice the speed of Tampa Bay's linebacking corps and especially even watching last week's game in New Orleans. The speed of Devon White, those two inside linebackers literally destroyed Green Bay single handedly destroyed the Packers. That day. They were all over the field, you know, had like three sacks 18 tackles. It was just amazing. I think that speed When you go outdoors in a cold environment on a field that may be a little bit slick. You know that's going to impact them. They're not going to be. Maybe it's fast as they were that day in Tampa, but they know that 18 tackles 15. So those 2.5 sacks five tackles for loss for quarterback hits. I mean, come on, you know if they play that well Sunday, then God bless them. They're going to the Super Bowl, and they're going to play that Super Bowl game at home. And how many polo is searched? Should I put my suitcase here? Wayne More of a polo community Tampa or is it buttoned down? So I'm just Trying to pack ahead here and just get ready. Yeah, No, it's Jon Gruden used to live there. So you know, not a polo is probably to form Okay. You know, you might want to go with the Hawaiian shirts. That type of thing. Something loud. Okay, Can I borrow something from your closet? Yeah, sure. I've got plenty of loud, You know, you look, I'm not trying to be flip or anything. I just feel more confident about this team. Both teams are streaking. I get it and you could argue both teams are playing their best football of the year and that these are in fact, the best two teams left in the NFL. Brady will handle.

"But again, they put together the resume. Since that game has been undeniable, mean Aaron has been spectacular. The back the Packers offense unbelievably good. The offensive line even without David Bachtiar e best in league So I think And you know, they didn't make the adjustments that they have with the offensive line back in week six. I believe that kicked Rick Wagoner out the left tackle on that went poorly granted. At that point, they were already down 28 to 10. When? When Bachtiar he got hurt. I think they're equipped to make the adjustments. But that doesn't mean that they're just gonna make the adjustments and then Oh, now they're going to win 38 to 10. This is a talented Buccaneers team that you can't overlook earlier in the segment called Gave Wayne was all part of a stall technique. I was trying to find the answers and updated results of our poll question. Really all it was up on 6 20 wtmj on Twitter. Champions Countdown Pull number one. How do you feel about Sunday's game against the Buccaneers? 70% bags packed for Super Bowl 55 29.7% say can't shake the week six loss. And that is 158 votes that Aaron so maybe maybe just maybe we have chipped away at our listeners a little bit. My bag is packed by the end of the show 20 minutes from now. I hope you will consider packing a bag when you go home, literal figurative. Whatever it may be, all right, coming out, running out running out the segment here.

"About Rams and Packers. And that is the game that starts. That's the first one up for us. To get a better look at the Packers and their perspective on this game, big picture their pursuit of another Lombardi Trophy. We go to Milwaukee. Bart Winkler is one of the best sports talk show host in America. He does the morning show on the fan in Milwaukee. It's a very highly rated show. He's got a ton of followers. People like to hear him talk about Wisconsin sports. On. He's joining us right now on CBS Sports Radio. What are you named after? Bart Starr? I don't think I've ever asked you that question before. When I was like eight. I, You know, I'm about three years into being a Packer fan, because as soon as I remember I was a Packer fan because I grew up in the state, so I went to my parents and I said Like with big, like reindeer eyes. I said I'm named after Bart Starr, right? And they looked at me and I think they looked at each other, and they've also like Yeah. Yes, sure. So I say that I am, but I'm not. I'm not really sure of the real origin. But let's say yes. Okay. For our listeners that aren't listening in Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison. Those places and there are you know, around the around the country around the world, frankly, Your dynamic. I think before we get into the game in the Packers chances, I think your situation is interesting to me because That the team you probably Talk about the most. Isn't in your town, so I I don't know. I don't think I've ever asked a sports talk show host or or a big guy in Milwaukee. This question before like it's two hours away, but Everybody in Milwaukee acts like the Packers play in downtown Milwaukee, right? Yeah, but they used to sew the Packers. Played the last the on Lee time they ever played. The Packers or the Rams in the playoffs at home I used quote was in the sixties in Milwaukee they used to play County stadium from like the sixties to about 1994, Okay, and they stopped doing that. So they only play six games at Lambeau, and they stopped doing that It was to keep them financially viable. Eventually, they didn't need it Truck down here anymore. But I think that's a part of it. But it is also like it's just the way that Wisconsin is, it is. It's a weird set up. You have the NFL and all these big cities and then you've got You know the area sat of Lambeau in a neighborhood and there's 100,000 people in the whole municipality. So it is weird. Um, the brewers carry statewide from Milwaukee. I think the bucks are uniquely They're doing better, but they've been a uniquely Milwaukee team. But the Packers is more like it's just It's just a way of life around you. I mean, it's It's insane, but yeah, It is that they're two hours away. Chicago is 90 minutes away closer, but there is a sense of the factors. Are we clear from the fan in Milwaukee with us here on CBS Sports Radio. Where would this loss rank? If the Rams go in there and shock the world and win today bar where, with loss rank on the all time list of Packers playoff losses in the Aaron Rodgers era. I think it would be similar to what happened to them. The 31st season when they went 15 and one had the number one seed had to buy and we're set up for an NFC championship game at home, which Aaron Rodgers has never started in one. He's been in three NFC Championship games last six years. And he was in one in 2010, but they've all been on the road. This one is at home now, so it would rank because that was a team that was very good, very Explosive offensively that under 15 and one year 2011, but in the Giants came in and beat him and then went to the Super Bowl, and they were seen that kind of resembles these rand's, You know, good running game. Quarterback Eli Manning, Jared Goff, but a really good defense. I think that it would rank right there. It would be. It would be bad. I mean, this is this is a team that's very good. This Packer team is is gonna be an interesting game next week against Noorlander. Tampa if the Packers get past the Rams, but You know everything I look at this game. The Rams are a team that I think do match up well with the Packers, but They're all broken down and hurt. No Cooper up today. Eric Donald's dealing with his ribs here got hurt in Chamakh. They don't even know if he would have started him if John Woolford was available. Imagine having that conversation two months ago. The Packers are a better team than they were a year ago and the Rams I think our shell of what they were just two months ago, so it would rank very, very high because Under these playoff losses that the Packers have had they kind of run out of steam or they're dealing with injuries. They're not that team That's the Rams. At this point, it would. It would be devastating. I think a lot of us around here me included. Are already looking ahead to next weekend. As long as the Packers don't do that, though. That's what matters. Bar offensive line player gets glorified You win in the trenches. It all starts up front. All those football cliches. For the Packers. It's a reality today, though, because it's Aaron Donald in the middle and Bachtiar ease out so Couple of questions. Come off of that. How do they make sure that Aaron Donald doesn't destroy their offensive game plan? And what the hell are they doing? It left tackle today. We've got a good offensive line. They've got guys that can play that position. I believe Billy Turner will be out there today. He's kind of like the 5th 6th offensive lineman. Throughout the season. Rick Wagoner..

"In the to not do that in the second overall pick. I don't know. All right, let's go. Let's get in the Packers and the 40 Niners obviously live here tonight from Levi Stadium. Tom Silverstein uncovered the backers for a long time for The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel joins us courtesy Of the murder of my guest line. Tom. What I'd really like to talk about is not this game. But there's a kind of peace up, talked about nine major clashes between the Packers and the 40 Niners, and I think that might be more fun to talk about. Probably better than the game keeper. I know and I wish we could that we should do more of that. Obviously, Covert is the is the word of all the time but especially tonight with the 40 Niners and tell us what's going on with the Packers. Well, they've had one positive case and two guys who have been deemed close contact. It is so One is the rookie running back a. J. Dylan. The other is backup running back to maul. Williams and Thea. Other is inside linebacker. Come on, Martin, So it's three guys. You know, pretty pretty regular performers. Jamal Williams is the one that probably hurts the most. Because I don't think Aaron Jones is gonna play. He's got a cast injuries missed the last two games and kind of he's questionable. I have a gut feeling that they're gonna hold him out. So they're really they're down to second year running back who's on the practice squad and then a guy who sort of their gadgets. Receiver was gonna tell you a little bit of running back to that Tyler and the other guy's Dexter Williams. Yeah, we know Tyler. Well from San Jose State, A ce faras. Aaron Jones goes, You know it's a short week, but he hasn't played in a couple of games I would I recall was a couple of weeks ago. He was kind of close to coming back to playing. Did he have a setback and practice our Because now would be the time you know, Minus a J. Gelatin Jamal Williams or you want Erin Jones to be able to play. But if you can't play, he can play. But was he close? A few weeks ago? Did he have a setback? White? Why is he still on the Ah? On the doubtful side. Well, I think They've been really, um, tried to be really cautious with him because he is the key to their offense, and I think they kind of feel like it's a calf injury. And those are things that You know, control from not to bad to worse in a hurry, so I think they've been really cautious about putting him back now. They didn't really have a chance to practice this week. Their facility was closed on Monday, and they had walked rooms the last two days, so I'm not sure if they've got not Really reading where he is and how far he can go. But I thought they were hyperactive were aiming for this game for him. But just Uh, feedback and the sense I get from floors that you know, they're really thinking about holding them out. Thomas Silverstein covers the Packers and he's joining this courtesy. The human guests I'm here on these four cedars, we get you ready for the 40. Niners and the Packers on Thursday night Football. Aaron Rodgers. Maybe outside of that bucks game where they're lying, Just gonna overwhelm them. His plane, maybe. Well, one of the best seasons of his career. What what's been the key so far for him? Having a lot of game. I think that's been so so important for him. Everything they do is similar to the 40 Niners. They love play action and you gotta have a run game in orderto, Um, execute play action, and Aaron Rodgers is best when he's got options when he can play. It's not forced to throw the ball when it's more about at the choice. And so when he can when he can, um Go up to the line of scrimmage and have a legitimate chance to run the ball. You know, knowing that he could get a first down or or he could spread the ball around to his back. Um He's a better player, but you take that running game away from him, and he's not nearly as good. Yeah, With all the injuries and the running back room going onto Tyler, Ervin and Dexter Williams will she have a kind of running game They will have, but you know, when you go back to last year and the two games the 40 Niners beat them in week. 12 on Sunday night, obviously time in the NFC championship game, the story of the game. Was the inability of Bachtiar Ian Bulaga. They had They had some injuries and tackle But you know, Nick Bosa just wrecked the game. There's just no other way around it In the past, Russia's just so Ah, you know, prominent could see it in Aaron's eyes that they couldn't get it block Now. The 40 Niners don't have those guys. They don't have Nick and they don't have D and they don't have Solomon Thomas and a few others. So what? My question is, is David back D R E Gotta play tonight. He's missed two in a row with a chest and I think that creates some dominoes where Billy Turner goes over the left tackle Rick Wagoner starts at right tackle. They're not nearly as good. Is when they have the all pro Bachtiar e. So is he gonna fly tonight? Yeah, my senses he is, You know, they didn't. Actually I've been shocked that Billy Turner has been as good as he has left tackle. He's you know, they tried to play him a guard last year, and it was a little bit of a Not. It proved to not be his best spot. So then they moved him to right tackle and then he's had to play left tackle. But they are a better team. When Turner's at right tackle on Bachtiar is that left tackle? And you know the game against Tampa. They just they just were overrun. They just I haven't seen a defense like that this year, and I think they were. I don't know if they were just caught by surprise or what, but the speed of that defense really affected him so We are the 40 Niners have done such a good job of pressuring Rogers. I mean, like you said, And they've just the front floor has been the difference. You know that in the two inside linebackers, you know a Warden Warner and And Green law has just been Dominant against them, So I think I think they're still going to be some issues with protection tonight, and that's that's something to watch. I don't Packers are goingto Be able to just run all over the 40 Niners. You know, Tom, speaking of Ah, running all over, Obviously last year in the NFC championship game, 285 yards on 42 carries six a two shot. The Packers given up about 47, and then, as Faras told the yard's about the middle of the pack as Faras the run defense. Obviously, the 40 Niners are not gonna have most of their anybody who touched the ball in that game. But how's the Packers? Run defense? Hold up to you? Moz. Funny..

You've got the Braves defeating the Marlins 95 in Game one of the NLDS 95, the final, Houston and Oakland underway. And it's currently middle of the fourth inning with the Astros leading 31 in Game two of the L D. S. You know, Greg when the Packers schedule came out, and they had to buy after only four weeks, I think a lot of people were saying man that's awfully early cannot be closer to the mid season. It comes at a pretty good time for the Packers, doesn't it? Yeah, it does always seems to write of injuries to Kenny Clarke and Sean Gary missed last night's game. Kevin King got dinged up during last night's game. There were others who were already playing without Christian Kirksey and Alan Lazard for quite some time, Davante Adams as well. It never seems like the injury report his blank during the course of an NFL season. Some weeks are just a little worse than others. I think what's been amazing John is that the Packers offense especially has not skipped a beat. There's been a lot of shuffling on the offensive line. Rick Wagoner lined up is a tight end. For goodness sake. Last week or last night, I should say against Atlanta. Matt LaFleur's ability to mix and match his parts and find the weakness in the opposing team's defense has been on full display. Yeah. Good stuff, Greg. It is for 48 at W. T. M. J.

So a triple header of basketball as the playoffs resume, with the Bucks Magic being the first game. That is not a surprise, given the other games on the schedule, which includes You know, Houston, Oklahoma City. That's been a great Siri's The Trail Blazers and Lakers trying to appeal to that West Coast audience wouldn't want them tipping off at 2 30, because, well, that'd be 12 30 out of West Coast time. Sorry, good. The timing makes sense. We'll talk more about the bucks was or Stevenson coming up a little later in the program. Growers are halfway through the regular season, believe it or not just 13 and 17. However, tonight, Milwaukee begins a four game series against the price. Craig Counsell expect to Seymour out of his hitters in the second half of the season. We've got guys in the but overcome on this league, and it has not been a successful first half for a lot of our lineup for fragrant most of our lineup, and so it's got to be better. To think it will be better because they have proven themselves in this league on there because there's some great players of that works are struggling force right now. Coverage of tonight's game begins at 6 35 Packers returning to the practice field, albeit indoors due to the threat of inclement weather in Green Bay. Right tackle Rick Wagoner returns after a brief absence due to an injury. And Rory McIlroy atop the leaderboard during around two of the BMW Championships in Illinois.

He was six. Over the last time I saw them. Maybe it's made of a stroke here, but Double bogies last I saw from tigers and he's a strong finished even move on to next week. Is that right? Yeah, not looking likely. I don't even know if he's going to make the cut, but I think you have to finish top five in order to move on. The next week. So it looks like the season The FedEx playoff season could end for Tiger this week and to clarify so the bucks we now know will play tomorrow with the 2 30 tip here on W T. M. J. Yeah, and that looks like it'll bleed right into brewers. Baseball will have to figure that out of the scheduling end which were working on But yes. Ah 2 30 afternoon tip.

"Companies. I talkto one Ah, a couple weeks ago, So there's more Chinese companies say they're coming. One of the little eventually make it Not necessarily, but it's good for Brandon neighbors. Who's your new guy? New big dog up in Plano Morning it and Alan Ray, who's like I knew Alan before he was in the car business when he's telling dealers how to do it. And he got so tired of telling them how to do it. He just said do themselves. All right. It is not to stay home. You know, my wife says, Why don't you do more consulting with dealers? And I said I would feel bad about taking their money because I'm not going to listen. You have a job forever If you're in consulting Yeah. Remember, I go all the way back to Ernie Pritchard right in control. We had the log, everybody and everybody had to wait for somebody else to catch customer before you. Could Nobody ever be on the show room when they were supposed to. And if we started listening, we wouldn't need a consultant. Yes. Well, you would have to know Ernie because Ernie used to this speech with this ping pong ball right and just impervious. So on and so forth, violent after you work three or four dealerships. And you see Ernie make the pitch over and over again. All of which were fine, but it had nothing to do with really being great at selling cars. I asked him to put the Ping pong ball on the floor and stand on it to prove to us that it would not shatter. And he stormed out of the room. I never had to sit through another Ernie Pritchard meet Well done. So I saw this this week. Even I did not know this and you would think I would be on more on top of things, but it was all a Cadillac CT six. Super crews function now, hands down. The best self driving software of any car period at the moment. Most capable level two I've ever seen. What nobody knew until it came out this week is you only get it for free for three years after you buy the car and its $7000 isn't it? I think it's about five. Okay? Yeah, but they're going to put in more cars. But after that, if you don't subscribed on star doesn't have all of its function, as they say, Well, the automatic braking in the lane keeping keeps working. Imagine that. Yeah, but the 180,000 miles of pre mapped roads across America. Yeah, thanks, but nothing. I'll be a little difficult with all the changing there you go, but I look at the GM marketplace has come out. And in fact GM marketplace you can stop on the way to work, Push and get a Starbucks ordered as if you're going to get out of waiting in line at seven in the morning or set a reservation, Whatever. And for every time you do that GM technically gets a cut of the action. Right? Yes. Alan, You bought your wife, a BMW. And you have apple carplay, innit? That's correct. And how much are they charging you for that connection? You know, I don't know for sure, because right now it's still part of the package. But I know that at some point think about six months it start paying, and I'm not sure, but it's not a great deal percent. But, hey, it's gonna be too much. Whatever it is to be quite frank with you. I just wanted the audience to hear people in the car business actually will bitch about people in the car business. But that point B made BMW's thing is apple changes. They're operating systems all the time. So We have to continuously update that system. Hence the reason there's this charge on it. Well, this is interesting now, amid two missions with that car play, and it's always free. It's always free. Only because they haven't figured out how to monetize. It was just a point of what we're discussing. I've been to GM. I've been to the OnStar center that's breath taking in its scope. But Rick Wagoner told me the reason GM loves on star so much is after the revenue. It's a 25% net company. Very lucrative, almost better than almost more lucrative than selling actual vehicle in infinitely more, Because if you think about whatever on sari is 20 bucks a month, I don't know. I've never had it. Never turned it on in the JAG. Their version of it. But if it's 25% net And your 240. That's $60 a make on that car during the course of a year, right? Mitsubishi system, which the Mitsubishi connect after the 1st 2 years of free $9200 a year. That what it is? I believe you're correct things like 1 90 90 year so, Yeah, so they have learned to monetize it. They have monetize er, but here's my point. If they make 60 bucks a year on the car after you buy it. In the course of a 10 year period. Assuming you keep the service in place at 600 bucks now start extrapolating that over the 270 million cars, trucks and SUVs on the roads in America. It's a breathtaking number. That's a lot of money. It's huge. I mean, like you said, It's very lucrative asses. That's a huge number. And it is great. Now, remember, that's just for service like on star. The car companies were saying, Look, we build these cars, a cash intensive. We've got hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars tied up and we made began a car that nobody wants to buy..

He was with Dwight Yoakum and back owns in the eighties, and he finally got into the studio gear. Right, Right, And I met Al during the period he was working for Dwight Yoakum because Dwight's extra armor was a friend of mine. And so every time I would call and order studio gear from al J. P. Morgan Chase would call me and say, We've got this charge. We're not sure it's legitimate his company with Studio Tech and I said, Have you not looked at how many things I bought from him? But they would always treat him like a fraud case. So literally a few months after one of the phone calls, there's 1500 on my credit card from the same place in Australia 500 bucks apiece. Literally 30 minutes apart. Do you think you think? J. P. Morgan Chase? Called May about fraud potential fraud on that one. Oh, I wouldn't think so.

After just 15 months because he said he wants to go ahead and become a CEO elsewhere again. He was with Ford of candidate in 2008. He's led three different companies of CEO here. One suppliers, agile T fuel systems and evey startup. Think from 2011 that one that Norwegian I think it wass. Yeah. Ah, and he used to be part of forward. New Holland Agriculture equipment 8 4010 He pretty much is either the most brilliant down the world or you can't keep a job, however. GM hired him in 2015. In the late nineties, he was a Chrysler Plymouth dealer. Don't hold that against him because in the nineties, Chrysler was kind of hot. That mean sand. Car dealers liked him. They said. He's always trying to come up with a solution. He's approachable. You text me text you back. You call him. He calls you back. He's a very good listener and helping us deal with our problems. Which car dealers by the way, kind of like The executive shakeup is going to put Steve Carlisle in charge of this new position of GM North America. Steve Carlisle comes to us courtesy of He's the guy to replace Yeo hand donation at Cadillac. He's been running Cadillac recently. He came out. He's a GM lifers, they say came out. He's a guy that rebuilt GM Canada. I did not know it had been rebuilt. I should have called the dealer before I did the story to see if that's fact. And so Mary Barra came out and said Steve is going to help a scale the considerable transformation progress we've been making, while the same time preserving the sufficient autonomy necessary to maintain four distinct vehicle brands. Now. I had not been hard on GM for awhile. But back in the nineties, GM hired somebody like Ron Zarella to do this. They said. We don't want GM lifers. We want people to think outside the box, so he was running Bausch and Lomb. Right after GM hired him, Bosh and loan got sued by the federal government because they used to sell different quality contact lenses. And you paid more and more money as you went up the line for Bausch and Lomb quality. The problem, Wass They were the same contact lenses. It was fraud of the degree. You kind of wonder if he didn't go to GM because that was about to come down on him because it did. But then again at the time, a GM you said, Well, he's pretty used to sell the same car a different prices right because he did the same thing with contact lenses. But GM in the nineties was not the GM. It is today. Not even close. But I have we went to the period where Rick Wagner came in. Rick Wagner did not cause all the problems of GM. He inherited them, including that $90 billion worth of debt. Rick was a smart, good guy. Some of the dealer said, You know, he made $1,000,000,000 mistakes. Add. Yeah. The General Motors of $1,000,000,000 mistake is like me making $1000 mistake. It happens. But Rick Wagoner, kind of put Fritz Henderson and positions and France was Fritz was very smart. A restructuring and Rick got Bob. Let's back in the car business. And his GM went bankrupt and came out of it. David Welch, My buddy of business week said it best GM is what it is today because of the re renaissance of their vehicle lineup with Bob Lutz and the restructuring of the company.
