"In. You're going to have really good talent in those first two rounds. So you try and load up, you try and give your offense a little bit more weaponry in your load up for Justin fields, you give him some more weapons, more protection up front. Yeah, Nick out here. I think you make a good point about the picks and trying to rebuild a team through the draft. I also think that there is a floor where you don't want to go beyond. And to me, that floor is probably four or 5 because even if you're going to trade the top pick, you want to make sure you still get a player, you can build around on defense because that's where they issue is. Even though everybody focuses on the offense and Justin Fields and I understand all the questions there, they still have to play better defense. And I think if they can lead this draft to your point with some picks and we'll Anderson or Jalen Carter, I think Ryan polls will have done his job tenfold and so hopefully that's what they can do. Have to change the outlook of that defense book completely agree here, but the timing of this for potential trade. Kevin, it's March 1st. The draft is at the end of April. When do you think a decision will be made on a trade? They've got time. Jared Goff going back to win the rams traded for him to number one overall. They didn't do it until mid April. Because quite frankly, you want to make sure everything is still playing out exactly as you plan. But Nick, can we go take a class and sales and negotiations? Two more picks. This is an unprecedented amount of leverage right now. The bears could literally trade to two and then to four, they could leave this draft with literally every single pick in the entire draft that they wanted to. And that might be an oversell. Okay, yeah. That's an oversight. Ricky Williams trade. I can guarantee you that. I would be shocked if we were to see that. But to your point, you have the leverage there because you have multiple teams trying to get multiple quarterbacks and a draft where specifically in the top ten, we could see go four go off the board.

"But he trying. You know what I mean? You can try in other ways. Thank you. For me, it's an honor. It's a symbol of us coming together for me to take your last name. For me, I see it as a sense of pride. Again, not everyone agrees with that. It's 2022. Garcelle. Yes. You were married. I was. I was married and I hyphenated. It was garcelle beauvais nylon. And let me tell you, the thing when you get a divorce, they make it hard to get your name back. I wanted my name back for so long. They made it really tough. You got to go through all this paperwork, all this stuff. But I just want to say, I think Zoe Zelda's husband also took her last name, and that was created a lot of backlash or not backlash. People just didn't understand it. I think you can show your wife love another way. I think you can make her feel secure when you're in the room. If you feel like you overshadow her, bring her in. Make sure people know who she is. I don't think you have to take her last name in order to do that. Or you look, he's Ricky Williams. It's certain things in history. He's only been married to her, I believe 5 years. Oh. He has a whole history at the NFL. People know Ricky Woods. The Heisman winner. It's like, you worked. You've earned for people to look at it. You know, we know you. It's like, it's not overshadowing. It's just, you know, you could simply hyphenate. I mean, everybody do it. And what you're with James, everybody knows you, right? So therefore, the attention goes to you. Right. But that doesn't mean you can't show James love in other ways. You don't need to take his last name. What's his last name? Welsh. And what I do well. I like that. That's cute. Lonnie love Welsh. Oh, so we're even.

"ricky williams" Discussed on Greg Bedard Patriots Podcast with Nick Cattles
"Podcast with the 98, five, The Sports Hub, app Stephenson with a great run to the outside Stevenson turn off, so I can touch down to the public example. Don't make up wanting, you know, this song, remind Ray Stevenson the rookie to the house. He had a touchdown earlier in the game. 1-yard Run to make it 15 to 7, but that one. They're converting a third, nineteen. Ninety, one yard touchdown run. That is brought to you by your New England. Ford dealers. You're rushing update brought to you by any women, Ford dealers and the Ford F-series, America's number one selling trucks were, forty four years. I'm proud to be the official truck of the NFL. Welcome back to Sean's Patriots, postgame Jim Mary Jo Marie, and join. Now for the first time this year, by Greg Bedard, Boston Sports journal. And before we get into the quarterbacks, which I think is going to be, you know, rightfully the talking point coming out of this game, Joe and I were trying to figure it out. Greg Hooters rhamondre Stevenson remind, you of I said, maybe like a steel Jackson type. Joe. Who did you say almost Ricky Williams, maybe maybe like Eric Blount light, you know, someone come to mind for a cup. You know, to tell you the truth guys, I haven't even watched them that closely this year, and I didn't even watch them that closely tonight. I mean, I saw the 91-yard run. I watched the replays, but I didn't look really hard at him just cuz I don't I don't think he has really much of a chance to play this year. No matter what he's done. But yeah, I think you guys are in the ballpark of like Steven Jackson a little bit. I don't see him at 5:50 is Ricky Williams. Ricky was so thick in the thighs. The guy that I I covered with the dolphins. When I first broke in, I would say Jackson in taught. Give him a time. Yeah, I would say Steven Jackson is a good comp just with Stevenson, if he watched him in college, he he was outstanding at blocking for the quarterback. He had great. Quarterbacks. They're expressed as a rattler last year down and hurts going back to Baker, Mayfield. Like he, he can play. I mean, I know we saw tonight, the a couple of bursts, but he can do a few things, especially Block in the backfield. So, I know this is a different log. Year, but they usually red shirt. These type of guys like, who could he beat out? I guess to make the roster this year. I don't really see anybody. I mean, I think it would take an injury for him to get on. I mean, look up to be on the roster. But yeah, we've seen them research, Redshirt these guys before Shane. Vereen James White. I mean, basically anybody who's come in here, Damien Harris was like, we thought he was a bus because he never saw the field as a rookie. I don't see what makes rhamondre Stevenson any better than those, any of those guys. I think he has some potential Ivan fears. His comments other day about Stevenson were basically like yeah. Forget about him this year. He's got so far to go. I mean, yes, he has. He fits the physical profile. I'm sure he blocks. Well, he gets yelled at a lot in practice. He screws up a lot of practice. So, yeah, I mean, he'll be nice to watch in the preseason. I don't expect him to impact this team, unless he, unless there's an injury, your assessment on Mac Jones. You heard the pop. I'm sure I mean wage. So I said a Joe earlier was like, you know, when Hogan came out back in the day, the WWF, like the people got up and people were excited. But what do you make his performance tonight? I thought he did exactly what he needed to do. Sort of to elevate this competition. I thought that he, he was quick with everything. He was. Decisive. He handled all the situations. Well, I thought it was very significant that Bill Belichick put him in with the starting offensive line towards the end of the first quarter, considering what the offense had done on the drive before. And, you know, they went out quickly three-and-out on the first drive, then they had a, you know, a nice scoring drive, but you know, any other year, any other situation? Bill probably, what's the starting offense roll again, get them a little bit of momentum, but to me, it was clear that he wanted to see the kid out there under the lights with the starting offensive line off, and that they put them in the two-minute drill. Straight out of halftime was also significant to me and I thought he did. He didn't do anything spectacular. I mean, look, if Christian Wilkerson catches that touchdown pass, you know, everybody's raving about Mac Jones. I mean, I think, I think he was fifteen of nineteen. But Wilkerson had two drops, and there was a Jacoby Myers passed, his first one, that was a catch. It just didn't challenge, you know, you factored those in and, you know, suddenly he's like 18 and 19 and look, not overly dangerous, any of us page. Says not, you know, the greatest quarterbacking display ever but I thought that he did what he needed to do. And I thought in contrast a map to cam who from the first pass of the game. The same stuff that we saw last year from, you know, the the naked boot to Johnny Smith wide, not a good thrill. There was the the sack which looked Isaiah off this blog, Chase young, but you need to know Chase Young's over there. And you also need to know that they're bringing six rushers and you got to speed up. You know Jim it's the same stuff that we talked about. You know, I'm back in the, you know, in a booth. Same stuff that we talked about the second half of last year like your speed up, you know, something's coming do something with the ball, don't get hit and he gets hit again. And then the third down on a screen pass is too quick too hot. Not good enough past and I thought that cam didn't show the Improvement that he needed to to hold off Mac and I think Mac did it off. Needed to do in that sets the stage for Philly, which I think is going to be very significant. Yeah, I thought the footwork of Mac Jones, really impressed me tonight. He stood up the other pocket. Something we haven't seen out from cam, but is it, is it fair to get on cam tonight? I mean, what did he play enough for us to truly analyze it and say, yeah. I mean, I, I know you just mentioned a few things. I didn't even love the screen pass wage. Even though James White on a nice little run there. But yeah, was there enough tonight to analyze this play and say, hey, Kim. Mac was truly better. No, I don't think so. I mean because look it's been a long time since these guys played games. I think that the opener you just sort of looking for certain traits and look the things that I pointed out with Cam. Those are things that we struggle with last year that he's going to need to get better at this year. And for openers. He didn't show that he is now, let's see what he does next week. In the joint practices with the eagles. They have the Eagles game week. Then they have joint practices with the Giants. The next 7 to 10 days, is going to tell the Tale on this quarterback competition. I think it's, if you watch tonight and ye don't think it's real. And in the position that they have put Mac Jones in, whether it's in practice, with resting the starters, putting Briar Brian Hoyer out there between drives and the last padded practice home to get Mac Jones. Get the starters reps on both sides of the ball to go against Jones and then tonight to get him out there with the first-team offensive line. If you don't think there's a competition going on. I don't know what to tell there is. Do I still think there might not be enough time for Mac Jones. Yes. I'm not sure that he can sway Bill Belichick in this amount of time. But I think tonight was a good step in the right direction song. And if Mac Jones wants to go after this job. He needs to kick it up a level and fill in next week. Who does Matt Jones have to sway. Is it the players, the code? I mean, obviously it's going to come down to check, but is there a chance? The players could be swayed in.

"Not ready for like that kind of detail. You know, like You should be. You should have been ready. I should have been ready for Sort of stadium news at any time that okay, We're at the point now where we're going ahead. It's not the bill saying it but still the report that they hired that one organization to help them. Do it. I think it I still I still do. I said this a lot on Friday. Still think it is the first sort of firm. Word. That new stadium is the plan. With Previous stories. It's been and feasibility studies, and we don't know like it's sort of up in the air how many times they might continue to renovate their current stadium. This was more firm and the plane is to not do that. And then you know, over the course of the afternoon it was okay. Orchard Park. Okay, open air. Okay. They might have to play in Toronto. Uh or that's been talked about her Penn State like Wow. As as that afternoon went along it just more and more became. This is this is a serious thing. This is not another. Well, they're consulting with somebody and maybe discussions. So I mean, pretty soon I think we're going to get to money. And I feel like there's probably a lot of strategy that goes into when and how that gets leaked and talked about. But how do you want to position that? Yeah, right. Yeah. So That's probably coming pretty quick. If the state if the lease runs out in 23. And we're talking about. I think I think we are Stadium for right after that. That they can move into and play in. This is gonna happen fast. I mean, what That's three years. How long does it take to build a stadium anymore? I think more than that. Well, I mean Right? I mean, that's where the having to go play somewhere else. Thing comes in like that. I think what I've read is that if they if they were to get this, you know We'll get out. Whatever get everything lined up right and I think there's a lot to do unless there's been a lot going on behind the scenes that no one has been leaking and and they're they're they're more ready to To move on this. And maybe the hiring of this firm is an indication of that. I don't know. Um, but from like, start to finish If they started. I am. What's the best case scenario here? I mean, there's no there's no talk of the bills having to play somewhere else because of construction for this coming season. So you know if you if you begin say next spring Doing whatever you need to do, And that might even be fast. Um, that you'd be looking at, like 26 as a as a as a date. I think I feel I feel like that's what I what I what I read that. Like that window of time. Mm. I don't have any like fantasy. There's no fantasy relevance than to this story yet is what you're saying. That's that. Yeah. You know what I'm saying? Is that baseball anyway, where we want to know it gives it a pitcher's park. But outdoors versus indoors is a thing, actually. Sure, like open error. That's a big development if it's to be trusted, and you know if you can go with it. That's a that's a big development, right? A lot of these new stadiums have retractable roof and maybe we were headed there. Or maybe we thought we were But Sounds like you know, there's they kind of want to keep the vibe. Maybe yeah, of what they have, because people love it, so that would make sense. I've read some reference to perhaps, um, like I think hard rock is is an example of this in Miami, where there's now like kind of like the way Texas Stadium used to be the original Cowboy stadium. Where, like The fan, like the seating areas covered with the field is still subject to the elements so that like you're still going to be cold, But you're not going to be getting rained on. Because there's you know, depending on the wind in the direction of the rain, but like you would have some protection from the elements. Sounds good. Remember how excited I was my first year with bill season tickets, deciding whether I wanted the sun side or the bill side. So that was a fun fun moment. Where do I Where do I chose the sun? 2002 season where there are a lot of fun games. I can still see exactly where, like the stadium from exactly where I was sitting, just like Sun side. I don't know 30 rows or so. Maybe the 30 yard line. That Chad Morton game Charlie Garner the Bills in the snow, Ricky Williams. Those games Breeze for San Diego. I think that season, um from that seat Just fun to do Think about where to sit. Well. It sounds like it's coming. 80305 52 comment Will have Brian cozy Holland to talk about the U. S.

"Right. Right. Right. Interesting. Cool. So getting these last handful of questions here, as someone who's reached some of the highest levels of performance in sport. What perspectives do you have around maybe like the psychology of these elite performers? I mean, the first one is my opinion is you have to you have to you have to have a love what you do. And I don't mean like if you're a football player, you have to love football necessarily. It could be you can love for me. I loved running. I love trying to figure out how to master a play, okay? Honestly, the points and all that other stuff. I really didn't care. One of the reasons I cared about winning and losing was because when we lost everyone was in a bad mood for the whole but for me it was really about mastering my craft, you know? And so I think if you're going to perform at any level, you have to you have to find that thing that you just love, right? Because then you don't perceive it as hard work and even when you do it's something you take pride in. You take pride in. And I think the other thing is there's a level of intensity that needs that needs to be managed. I think greatness always comes at a cost. And I think if you manage it, that's the cost is the cost of managing it. And if you don't, you pay the cost another ways. And so I think there's a myth of, you know, if you're great, everything is good, but it's actually quite the opposite because you pay a price for greatness. And I think that's a good thing, but just be more conscious about it. Right. Are you a really competitive person? I compete against myself more than I competing against other people. Yeah. Interesting. Yeah, 'cause I couldn't tell. I was trying to get your vibe around it throughout the interview. If you compete with other people, that's a form of comparison. And I'm really like, every time I've ever compared myself to someone, eventually I ended up feeling like crap. And so I just stopped doing it. And so, but if I compete against myself, you know, I'd always feels good because I.

"It's kind of this thing where I feel like kind of like having a child is you give birth to something and then you're there to nurture it and help it grow into what to what it's meant to become. But my personal goal made this go a while back was to get paid to be myself, you know? And part of that is the appearances I do and all that other stuff, but it's more of like what I'm doing a business. It's really an extension of what I've received, been able to process and feel really good about sharing with the world and creating vehicles in order to be able to do that. And so what I've learned about plants and herbs, I've created real wellness as a vehicle to share that with people who are open to it and want to receive it. And with Leela, the same thing, people that really would like to experience improvement in their relationships in the quality of their lives. This is an offering and we've created something and we're creating something that people can use for that reason. And the other company that we're launching this fall, Heisman is our is our foray into the recreational cannabis space. And it really brings together a lot of what we've talked about. It brings together sports and cannabis. As a lifestyle. So, you know, something that, again, where I started growing up in the 80s, these two things were separate. And now, you know, through my life showing that actually they do well together. Yeah, they can't. They can't be mutually they're no longer mutually exclusive. Exactly. Yeah. I mean, it's so funny. I got a text. I got a text today. From someone and it's the NFL, it says NFL NFLPA offers $1 million in grants for pain management research, including cannabis and CBD. So this is the world we live in today. Yeah..
"ricky williams" Discussed on Driving Force Podcast
"We watched the movie, I laughed my ass off, kind of let everything go, the next two weeks I had back to back 300 yard games and was back on track to win the Heisman. And so it made it made an impact, made a big impact in my life. Yeah. And in what other ways has, I guess, marijuana and plant medicine helped you. Well, to me, that's really the main way. My opinion of what cannabis is is something that. It's spiritual medicine. And again, like when I say I'm spiritual, I don't mean it as a title. I mean it more as the way I look at the world is I believe that we're all spiritual, meaning we're all spirits here having an experience, right? They sense of what I'm around you. I mean, even now, I can see your face, but as we talk, there's an energy exchange, I can feel something that's beyond your body, that there's a radiance or a light that's coming from all of us. And I think that's more of who we are than the actual physical bodies, okay? I see. That's what I mean when I say spiritual. And I know for me, when I started using cannabis, it helped me tap into that idea and not get so stuck on the physical form of things. Okay. Got it. That makes sense. And so sometimes you need to be stuck to the physical form. So anything can be abused, but I think the problem that we have in society is we're too stuck to the physical form. Interesting. And what was it, what was it like to wrestle these two passions of football and plant medicine while you're playing in the NFL? Yeah, I mean, again, the trickster. It was fun. You know, trying to figure out how to pass all the drug tests. I mean, that was really the wrestling of the passions. It's okay. I have these two passions. How can they coexist with each other? And the main problem to solve is how can I play football and consume cannabis? And so I was finding ways to figure that to figure that out. Interesting. That wasn't the answer I was expecting. I was expecting like this. Oh, it's just like a lot long, hard, struggle. It wasn't because again, I retired from football. So they weren't happening at the same time. I got a break to go really just buck wild. And again, I didn't, it was just, I was guided by something. And I started studying Ayurvedic, which I wanted to be a healer. And it was in a town called grass valley, and I didn't know it was like one of the cannabis growing capitals in California. And so people had heard my story and they just started walking up to me and giving me weed on the side of the road. And I was like, I was like, wow. This is just really interesting. And at the time, again, I was studying Ayurveda, so I was studying herbs, and I had access to all this legal cannabis. And so I started formulating, taking what I was learning about mixing herbs in school and creating medicines with cannabis. And it was fun. And so then, you know, after that year off, I guess you could say, for the most part, I got it out of my system where you knew it was like no rules and just literally pounds. Lauren, you know, and then when I went back to the NFL, you know, it was like, okay, it was do it now I'm back doing this. And so if there was this kind of going back and forth in this integration process and I felt like every year there was a greater and greater integration..

"Yeah, you know, it's funny, at least for me, you know, the journey starts, it starts in the mud, you know? Meaning, you know what I'm saying? Like in Hinduism and Buddhism, you know, they use the analogy of the metaphor of the lotus. You know, it starts in the mud and grows through this beautiful flower. And I felt like we started in the mud, meaning we started in our social time based cultural conditioning, right? And we try to come out of that and figure out, okay, what is real and what is true, what is true in life. And so growing up in the 80s, you know, say no, just say no to drugs. This stuff is this stuff is bad, okay? And I believed it. Like a good stuck in the mud, like a good kid. And then I had an experience in college where my experience clashed with what I was told. And I was kind of stuck in this position where I was told this was a bad thing because this is the only thing that's helped me in this situation. So what do I do with that? And I'm the kind of person that I just taught to trust my heart. And so I did. And I found that it worked for me, except it didn't work for the NFL, and I was suspended. And it made me ask myself, really serious questions. And when I retired in 2004, part of my journey was in am I crazy or is there something more going on here? That was really the theme of my awakening is I just have this epiphany of everything we do in life. It's like on this superficial level. There must be some deeper core route to where it all comes from. And I just got really curious about it must be there. And somehow that question led me on this journey and I remember several months after retiring, I was in India at the bottom, the basement of this 3000 year old temple. And I'm hearing that these temple dancers dance, you know, I'm hearing the drums, you know? So there's the theater, right? The movie screen, okay? Then there's the radio, the music, right? And I'm starting to realize that the core of everything is really spiritual. It really starts here, you know? And I just felt this visceral connection to that I was Tapping into the core of something. And part of that journey was that same trip in India, I'm driving up the Himalayas with my yoga teacher. And there's just like growing naturally, just fields of cannabis and it's like, again, having that experience in being in a place where people are meditating and they're talking about, we use cannabis to help us meditate, like just being in that environment and partaking and having that experience, it just changed things for me. And I think that for me, the bigger vision.

"It's a big Rite of passage for cancer women to let their kids leave the house. Most of them, right? Because cancer cancer wants to share that long shared story, right? They want to connect. Cancer wants to be able to put the guard down and have that real connection with your kids, you can have that kind of connection. It's very interesting. Brings back memories, I can't say. I have a cancer moon, right? We'd like to reminisce. We like to reminisce. Yeah, that's really interesting. So I apologize if you mentioned this right when we started. But when are you playing to officially launch this to the public? Yeah, so we're launching June 28th, two 34 p.m.. Why two 34? Something in astrology. It's an old tradition called elections. And the idea is to find an auspicious time to begin something, right? So the idea is if you want to play have a baseball game, find a day where it's not raining. And there's a better chance that the game will go well. And so we used astrology to find it auspicious time where the energies really match what we're doing. And so Steve and astrologer found this really beautiful really beautiful moment to hit send to launch the app. Let's come up very soon. Yeah, it is. Yeah. That's exciting. Yeah. So what is your ultimate vision for Leela? Ultimate vision for Lila is, again, to bring to bring the mystery matches back into people's into people's lives. Again, that's what happened to me. I was a professional football player and I thought that was the magic, right? I had all the money I could ever want and fame and I was one of the best in the world at what I did. And something was missing. You know? And when I found astrology, I started to just be able to see so many so many different connections and things that I had a lot of shame and pain and misunderstanding about started to make sense and to clear up. And that kind of peace I think it's what the world needs right now. And so just to find and the reason we chose relationships is because it's something that we all experience on a daily basis. You know, with our friends and our family and our loved ones, it's up in front of us. And so if we can use Leila to help point people in direction of where the synchronicities and where the magic lie, then it becomes obvious when you're doing it with another person. And that's what I learned when my wife and I started studying astrology together. Because before I met linnea, I've been studying astrology for over ten years, but it was something that I did by myself. You know, I'd be in my office reading books, you know? Looking at charts, not even talking to anyone about it. So just to kind of in my own head, trying to figure it out. And then when we started dating, she showed some interest in it, and I invited her to a class..

"That doesn't know much about astrology? Are you kind of dabbling or are you an expert? And depending on that, you know, it's the same content, but we deliver it in a way that they can understand. And the way it's written in Stephen Forrest, our wizard, who's created all the content to date, you know, he's written 12 astrological books, and he's thousands of astrologers. So he's really masterful in taking the astrological language and putting it in plain English for people. And so it's very relatable and it's very intelligent. And so I think the way the content is written, it's personable. And it's not overwhelming with astrological jargon. Right. Yeah, so I'm making it really easy. Easy for people to walk through it. Yeah, that's great. So in terms of compatibility, my astrological sign is Sagittarius. So at a high level, what is this, I guess, mean for me. In terms of, I guess, yeah. Great question. Great question, because a lot of people, they try to put compatibility in a box, but for me, compatibility is just about a choice. And so for instance, if I was in a relationship with the sedge, okay? There are a couple of things that I just need to know. The sun. Our sense of vitality, right? You're going to be more vital when you have a sense of freedom, okay? So even if I have an opinion about you doing something, I don't want you to do it. I'm not going to tell you, right? Because and that's something I'm going to work on my work on with myself to realize for this, this is what I'm saying, relationships that support you and being yourself. So I know that for me to be yourself, you need to travel. You need new experience. You need to not be bored, okay? And I know if I try to keep you at home all the time, you're going to be bored and you're going to strain, right? So I might even suggest, hey, you know, why don't you go on this trip, right? So just understanding, especially with the sun, what makes this person shine? How can I find a way to let this person shine? That's non threatening to me, but I actually helped me feel closer to this person. And to me, if you're willing to ask those questions and you have this information, any charts can be compatible, but more importantly, you have the information so you can say, no thanks, right? Like a cancer might say, that's a little too much for me. You know, I need someone to be home all the time. And that's fine. We can be Friends, right? But we realize if we try to live together and we don't have an agreement about this, it's not going to work, right? So it's funny, you can look at certain charts and you can see if they're not an agreement, you can see the fights they're going to have, right? It's funny. I use an a and myself as an example, okay? So she's got a lot of Capricorn in her chart. And Capricorn is responsibility. Rules. Structure, efficiency. These are things that are accomplishing things. And I'm a Gemini, okay?.

You know, it has been ebbs and flows, ebbs and flows, you know? And it reminds me of a football season or even more acutely in a football game. And riding the waves of momentum. And it's interesting. Our strength is really our team. And the birth of soul, you know, my son really served as like a very strong reset button for us. And we're planning to launch in the App Store.

And then it's not a comfortable time. And then kind of as labor starts, there's a second wind and this excitement that, you know, there's about to be there's about to be a baby here.

"So I mean, I get it. Ricky Williams was a beast, too, but He had a flaw he had and that he was an addict or something. Just say it. Well, my first talking about college and pro like that's the thing like girl with such he used grated both, and David said he was more of a younger guy. So you don't remember going back to the real camel act? I don't remember Old Campbell of Texas, I do remember. Running at Houston, though, and the thing if you ever watched a row, Campbell run. You had never seen a guy that size. Move that quick like it was just amazing thing. You couldn't I could imagine trying to tackle him. Witnessed that Monday night football game, the Houston Oilers versus the Miami Dolphins game and it was crazy. It was general. It was his rookie year he ran for 247 yards. It was incredible, and the last one he ran for the touchdown when he got around the corner. I mean, generally just walked in, walked in and just went to his knees because he was so tired that hey, bum, Phillips ran him ragged. That night was the greatest thing I seen in a player I I witnessed. So it was It was awesome 7349, and they did 50. Let's go to Doug. And absolutely what's up, Doug? A lot of things that I'd like to talk about Earl Campbell remember when he ran over Isaiah Robertson from the Rams. But some of the things that they came up to Charles Lightning as a Michigan guy want every time I hear his name. All I can think of is the touchdown that he got at the Rose Bowl. That shouldn't have been a phantom touchdown. Yeah. Touchdown. Yeah, but when you're looking for when you really break down his career It was the Rose Bowl of 1980. Where he brought you see back. They probably had a 60 60 65 yard drive, And I don't think they threw the football once against Ohio State that undefeated team and he took it right into the end zone. With that dive over the top to beat them 17 to 16 or something like that. I think it was 17 16. So, so I'll go with titles like thing. I want to correct JJ too, though I'm surprised he got this. Oh, a little wrong. Over Normie FCC in 1983. In fact, they played us that the suitable 84 I thought before I projections I did. I knew that, Doug. I knew that they don't correct people on the radio. I just said I go with it. Yeah, but I love listening, J. J. But then when it was when I was a little surprised that Dennis you You mentioned something with the Giants and you said Jason Pierre. I think that was Oh, see human. Your that was the defensive end for the Giants back, then won it in the Super Bowl against Brady. Oh, yeah. Oh, man. Euro was there. I thought maybe Jpp was a rookie, and he came in there and take maybe got a got a Super Bowl ruling with the Giants to they beat Tom Brady. Yeah, The thing I remembered about him a dog is that you know you have your defensive tackles and defense events. But what they did in that game, Coughlin was he would play the defensive ends. He would play for defensive ends and you know, he was playing them where you play your defensive tackles to get the pressure. On break. That was one person. I remember what you know You haven't seen a whole lot sense. And But if you watch that game last night, the pressure that you know, shack Barrett jpp were able to put on there. If they brought didn't bring a lot of blitzing, you know what they They took their linebackers Hayward, those two corners once we get both of them that wow, great blitz, both of them, But they said Look, I linebackers could stay with Kelsey. And we're gonna keep these safeties way back. We're gonna dare you to run. And we're gonna put two guys on hill and he's not gonna be this and you know what a great game plan by time balls and it helped that they didn't have much of an offensive line. But When you see what Patrick my homestead over the last two years and to see him and maybe it was his toe, And maybe it was his offensive line. But maybe it was a lot of great game planning and great play by the defense as well. But, yeah, just awesome domination. They're really about Champa. No, Jamie Jamie, I got a question for you with all your football experience, and it is touching on this. Offensive line situation last night, is it What? Why? Why move the left Right, tackle the left tackle and bring in a new left tackle or do right tackle and just have to nougat like it. You just fill the left tackle spot and leave Mike Remmers right where he's comfortable. I just wouldn't you want them season guy You want the most the most seasoned guide to be the back for the back? I mean, too protective rear of the quarterback. So he's the more I I mean, he's the most most seasoned guy, so they went with him. Hopefully stop any kind of pressure. Can't you can't you studio? You know, keep Remmers at the right side. Bringing the new left tackle gets him tight and help there on the end. I don't know if I have. I know they have another tight end other than Chelsea. Get it? No, they do with you taking you taking you taking that the Y received the extra wide receiver that they like to run. You know, they love the run Five and what I mean by five years, five wide receivers and the I mean 4 ft. Four wide receivers and that and Kelsey the tight it So you're taking up that spot, So you know he's got to get the ball off fast. And you know, with that they really just shielded they took they doubled the Hill and Kelsey. And said You want to throw to these other guys? You're gonna go out. You're gonna have to go over there and you still want to put your five best linemen out there. I get your point about just throwing up, you know, Go on the left tackle and leave rumors out there, right? But you want to come up with your best five. You think you can put out there, but it was real makeshift. And they were in a tough spot because they lost, you know, rember shouldn't have been out there like they lost their left tackle the week before the US to right tackle and you go for that man. It was a mess. Heard a very interesting step statistic or story. I guess you'd call it about Tuesday or Wednesday and listening to some Super Bowl stuff. And when Denver Beak. Carolina Panthers. On Miller with the M V P with two sacks and forced fumble and the right and the left tackle that day was Mike Remmers. Yep, the back from ST Then. Shack, Barrett. It's like check Barrett kind ahead of blueprint. Unlike tremors from watching von Miller so many years ago, there was a period was a very interesting little little tidbit. I really didn't know. One would think he would have improved right? Well, you think or you think you think he's no so but know that they were They were in trouble last night with all the all the people out all the linemen out. Interested, interested match up well for them last night night. I didn't think it would be like it was a 31 9 thing, but I'm not surprised that the the winner but a little surprised that Kansas City's inept offense, I guess so. But thanks for the time, guys. Yeah, I'm shocked. Like you know, if you'd have told me the score I said, Yeah, You know, you have to put everything you own on what side would have ended up winning? I said, Oh, I feel pretty good about putting Kansas City there. We've just seen it like last year. They were down so many points when it was to Houston. All those games where they were. You know, down double digits and just came roaring back. We haven't seen my homes look like it did last night at all. You know, so It was hard to say like that. You thought even with the line, I thought he would be able to make up for that. I thought nobody's been able to stop the combination of hill that Kelsey so I didn't think Tampa Bay would be able to do it. So at that. Lot of surprises. There are other people that went with Tampa and said they were worried about the line and you know Brady slows things down. You know, you guys knew it. But I It was. It was shocking. For people that have watched it..

Think about that for a minute. Think about the way Ricky Williams was perceived back in the day. Remember, you remember like he was just some kind of flake who picked burning Herb over playing in the NFL burning like he just decided that was more important to him. Remember the rap? Remember the narrative about Ricky? Back in the day way back in the day. I mean, if he had come even five years later, seven years later, how would he be seen right now? Instead, these guys kicked out of the league has go to Canada and for what quote, picking Herb over the NFL. Yeah, either that or maybe alternative forms of medicine. Maybe he picked at over painkillers. Yeah, I don't know. Maybe he picked burning Kron over an addiction to opioids. Maybe that's what he was doing. Maybe was picking that over? I don't know Toradol. Taking the spike. Bad timing. I mean, look at him right now Help my guy. Joe Montana sells Bud. About that. Yes. Oh, Ricky, it's all about timing, right? He had bad timing. He was way ahead of his time. In that regard. I've talked to Ricky of late man, still one of the most thoughtful guys ever. Alternative forms of medicine and healing and yoga. Cleansing the mind and spirit. Hey, man, you know, back in the day the thinking was more along the lines of if you're not addicted to pills, you you're just not addicted to football. If you're not addicted to pills, you're not about the right stuff. Come on, man. Come on, Ric, put down that bond and pick up the oxy cotton. Availability is your best ability. Listen, I I'm not putting that on the league or the culture of the league. However, just think of how that guy was viewed back then and then think of how somebody like that be viewed right now.

"Here with Ricky Williams set of Harper Riverwood works and we're talking about custom cabinetry and remodeling and all that kind of good stuff. There's some common things that happen or that people have with their kitchens like, for instance, blind corners that big cabinet that you have in the corner that's kind of like a avoid things fall into the back of it never to be seen again because it's this joy, enormous space, the cabinetry black hole. Exactly exactly So, so let's talk about some of that stuff. So in the case of a blind corner, what do you do that kind of minimize that or make it actually functional useful? S O. There's some great hardware on the market. Now that deals with the blind corner. One company revenue shelf is where we use a lot of our products. Yeah, they make the spinning shelf make the lazy Susan, but they also make of menagerie of other items that can go into those blind corners. They're newer cloud is really amazing. It slides into that blind corner. It's a shelf that goes all the way back into the corner. And then when you pull it out, the shelf comes all the way out to you really the kitchen and they could have two tears or one single one for larger appliances. That's neat. Everything comes to the front of you. You lose a little bit of shelf space, but the ability to bring everything out to you. Is fantastic, so storage. He was like full extension drawer for the corner. That's our little you track that brings it all out to you, and there's some others that have Baskets that Twist and turn and bring the stores all out to the front of you. Okay to the front of the cabinet for you can access it. So you know, having to dig back into that blind corner. That's causes that kind of stuff. Really expensive. Is it pretty reasonable? It's pretty reasonable. Some of them, you know, 6 $700 for some of these, But if you're doing a whole kitchen, Yeah, I don't like to do $100,000 kitchen remodel another $600 item was, Yeah. Pocket change. Right, right. Okay. Well, how about how about drawers that come out of that area? Do they make those There are some drawers in the blind corners. There's also the 90 degree drawer. So actually had comes into a 92 Greek into the corner, and it comes out as a regular drug When you open it out, has a V in the front of the drawer. Oh, neat. Okay, well, that that uses up a lot of space. Well, one of the things that I have with my house eyes I've got one of those standard. Small pantry closets. That is not that usable because there's you know, there's all that space at the top from the top of the door up to the ceiling. That's pretty much just this empty space that you can't do anything with unless you've got really tall boxes of cereal that you're gonna put up there, you know, And then there's space to the left and the right. That's not that usable. So what? What are some of the solutions to that? Well, it depends on what they're doing with the remodel. If they're gonna be able to take out walls will go in and suggest, Hey, let's take out that whole pain. Entry and let's build a better pantry that fits that space. Okay? One of builders put in the most these houses. I'll just frame it up. Put a door in there and save here's your pantry. Yes, your pantry. Save someone the cab the tree, Or maybe the cabinetry packages their purchasing. Don't have pantry options that they want to use. Okay, But if they decide they want to leave that space, there's things that we can do to help add some usability to those shelves in that pantry. Sometimes that space that's up above the door and to the left and right is just gonna have to be Lost, okay in order to put in drawers and shelves that actually pull out and let you use that cabinetry that space more efficiently, so sometimes we have to lose space to gain efficiency. But you know you're able to store things in that closet you wouldn't have been able to before. Have you ever had anybody put a door in above the door to, you know to use that space. That's above the door in the pantry is to have put into another door above that. Not that I can think of. I'm gonna trademark that idea and sell it back to you, then. Yeah, I could see where people would actually cut in and opening and maybe drywall it and then they could put a decorative vase or some lights or something up above that door. Something decorative. Okay. Because if it's too high, you can't really reach it anyway. Right? Yeah. Your arms early so long or those, But like you get your boxes don't fit up there. A lot of people have Platters and trays. They stick up on that time early and use them once a year. Okay, so then you bring up another point. So in some kitchens I've seen where the cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling and then a lot of them, especially in builders, homes. They don't they look afford or two down from the ceiling. Is that just to save money or isn't that wasted space up above the cabinet? Yes. So there's two things going on here one. How tall is the ceiling? Well, yeah, I guess if it's a 20 ft ceiling, right, So if you have a nine and 10 ft tall ceiling Most people can only effectively use their cabinetry to 8. Ft. S O without getting a latte around right? And that's even 8. FT is still even pretty tall. So that's where you might see the Cabinet stop then. They're only gonna build the cabinets, especially for the pre manufactured cabinetry. They only make those boxes so tall. They have a 36 inch cabinet and maybe a 40 inch cabinet. OK, and then they might have a 12 or 15 inch tablet. You could stack on top of that. So that's off the shelf stuff. But when you're doing things that you're doing custom Do you typically go up to the ceiling or again like on a night like it? Let's say a 10 ft ceiling way Have it all depends on the look. How small is the room is the room's really narrow But it's really tall ceiling. We might not want to go all the way up because it might feel towering like those Cabinet trees..

I honestly don't know the answer to this. Did you get Any Heisman votes. You're less you're Virginia know. So, um Don't think so, because I feel like I had Like one or two bad game, not not bad games, but they were just like sub Like elite games. Got it for running back and that you know at that time, especially because I mean it was pretty good. Running backs choice, Smith. Um, nobody remember him because he didn't make it in the NFL, but he was studded Iowa State. Not not Troy Smith, TROIA. Dave Hoses named Troy quarterback or running back Running back's a little running back. Davis three. David Daniels? No. Uh, no, I think was David's story. Davis and Byron Hand sparred. From Texas Tech. There was some good running backs during those years that I was at Virginia Ricky Williams, also a Texas burying the lede yet who was the second guy you said Byron hands barred, but party is saying the same Ricky Williams firing hands part. I think he was all American. That's that's why I'm messing around one of those Williams. It's one of those things, though, bt It's just why I'll never be able to get it into the College Football Hall of Fame. Because I wasn't an all American, even though I was a C C player of the year and you know one of the greats of my university. I wasn't an all American, because the stipulation that is the stipulation. It's like that's why Say like, I think Joe Montana. He wasn't all Americans are as good as he was. He won't He can't get into into the into the College Football Hall of Fame. I think it was him. Maybe was someone that's ridiculous. Ridiculous rules. It's a crazy criteria in order to get in if you were all time, great, but just weren't on all American. You can't get into the cause. Why would at least offer a little wiggle room? I like the fact that keeping the keeping the bar high one of the issues I have with baseball's Hall of Fame is that its been awarded at a little bit. We've talked about this on the show. But at least I mean, even if you're not all American, But if you win your cut, and it's a major conference, right if your conference player of the year of the A C C lift the velvet rope up for my guy take, you should be. And what is this? I'm all good. They'll be too. You know why? Because, well, five years ago, I went to the academic All America Hall of Fame. That's important to my mom. Remember that what we were or were we were doing a remote way We when we saw that, Where was that where we do it? Harley Davidson remote. Yeah, I remember where it was now, because we know that we went to like five cities with Harley Davidson number one was in Norfolk. I remember because it was close to my hometown, Pittsburgh. We went to we went to get a sworn We stop. Maybe Santa. He was with us, too. But anyway, it's uh, I didn't even know that. I just assume that you're in now. It's so weird Hall of fame. I'm not eligible. Now. They're all my bad leg never allowed on this show. And I wasn't in the Heisman conversation. Even though they put out a pretty great campaign when I was at U V A was gonna cool. They didn't really Yeah, they didn't cool. Campaign to start season because because this is exciting, you have a good running back and Heisman campaign. Well, they would I remember. See that I don't know what they do with the Heisman campaign. Now, I'm sure it's all digital, obviously, but I remember I mentioned it's like, once or twice over the years. We've been together when I was working in Las Vegas. So the year Woz it was 2000 and 2001. And I was at a network that no longer exists. And that was Scotty Ferrall was there with Jim Grow into talent, man, and I was just coming up. And they had remember, I got a package from which they still have. I got to show. There's something I gotta train this sometime. Ah, package from TCU with a spiral binder picture of LaDainian Tomlinson on the cover, and I got a mouse. Um, not a mouse, a mouse, a mouse pad with Antoine Randall l from Indiana. So, like the Heisman camp, that was their push. That was to get it out there. They sent it to everyone. I know they said there, but most people, new media I don't know if they still do that. I know this The eight years that we've been in our network. We've never got that. I don't know what they quite do with the way they used to. But the old Heisman campaign used to be pretty cool. Yeah, you really did. It was it was an effort. It was like a PR effort for sure. Remember Joey Harrington and the and the Nike in Times Square. It That's great, which is also you talk about your school looking out for you, Nike really feel night looking out for you. That's the way you do it. That's right there, overall, pick two and then you know, back in those days, it was still kind of, you know, a diverse award. It's become a quarterback award. That's not tonight and not no more. Not tonight. Tonight, the 29 year drought of wide receivers comes to an end. I believe that I said this like a month and a half ago, right? Only there's only because I saw the Vontae Smith play in person, and I was so impressed with his ability. Um, you know, just, you know, he's getting the football and you did everything to try to stop it. And he still goes for 180 yards. And you know, a couple of touchdowns every single game every week. Every single it was unbelievable every week, including last week in the semi semi final of the college football football playoff, the other guys are they have good resumes. You know, I think Trevor Laurence because he missed two games him. He's out of them running Cal Trask. You know a smudge as he seems like he had the other just just the stats of statistical numbers Tol aiming. The best player on the best team is Devante Smith, and now you could argue Mack Jones, who had an unbelievable SEC. Sec. Forget Alabama record setting SEC record setting season um, should be in this conversation. But if I put those two against one another, I say, who's the better player? To me?.
Jalen Ramsey's troubled Jaguars tenure ends with blockbuster trade to Rams
"Terms of Jalen Ramsey will talk about this he finally got what he wanted the end result the disgruntled corner headed to the Los Angeles Rams the Jaguars finally relented and Ramsey to the west coast for first round draft picks two of the one in twenty twenty one in two thousand twenty one also a fourth rounder in the two thousand twenty one draft here's a statement for Jaguars executive VP. Tom Coughlin given the situation with Jalen we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars for this season and well into the future we feel the trade that we struck with the rams gives us great value for the next two drafts and remain confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title Jalen Wasser Productive Flair but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los A- Angela here's head coach Doug marrone obviously I had a good relationship with him and we were working together to get them healthy on the field and that that's what my focus was so he can get on the field and help us you know win football games and now you know how concentrating on on the players gotta here and and getting our guys focused on on on Cincinnati I think in his league nothing ever really surprises me anymore you know especially from the business side of things I found out like everybody else did last night you know lately point Dave came in and told me Rams reporter Lindsey theory joins us from L. A. and Lindsey listen there's been a lot of coming and going and all Ryder roster changes what's the general reaction to all of the news from the rams this week Wendy for a team that's three and three and in the mid of a three game losing streak certainly renewed buzz and energy at the team facility this morning now I am told the Jalen Ramsey is in route to Los Angeles and he's expected here later this afternoon or the rams do expect that he will pass his physical and I am told that he could be on the field for them as soon as Sunday against the Falcons now this would be viewed as a move where the rams are going all in once again to try to make a repeat super bowl run but I am told the Rams really believe that this is a move for their long-term future keep to leave and Marcus Peters or playing the season on expiring contracts Ramsey has another season left and the rams do intend to sign him to a long term engine now as you mentioned he's not the only new face here at the facility today Kenny Young Austin Corbett also were here they have passed their physicals though remains to be seen if they will be at practice later this afternoon and one more note Wendy Safety John Johnson is headed to injured reserve because of shoulder injury. Lindsey thank you it was a rare blockbuster trade a few weeks now before the trading deadline Ramsey joined a small handful of veteran players traded for multiple first round picks in the last third two years or so Khalil Mack and Jay Cutler garnered big offers from the bears the dolphins move two first rounders for Ricky Williams and it too big halls to get Herschel Walker an Eric Dickerson listen we can go back to the jags but since June Ramsey is moving onto the rams let's start with what he means for the La Rams Right now we'll Wade Phillips now gets a play defense the way he wants to Wakefield's really wants to play in your face on the line of scrimmage with the defensive line pressure and then in your face on the live with men cover corners. He hasn't been able to do that to be honest with you with Marcus Peters Marcus Peters is not not played good man to man coverage needs a better zone corner so now wade having Jalen gets the opportunity to get back to Colin defense the way he wants to do it I'll be really interested to see if they use Jalen the way we want I bill belichick thrill reverse where you put him on the team's best number two receiver and then everybody else gets to get double teams opposing for the opposing offense but it makes their defense significantly best Champ Bailey the dion sanders I mean the great quarters you can do that lock him up and then roll the other side I think you'll see that the other thing that was curious for me was that Tom Coughlin mentioned that Jaguars were better this year and going forward I think maybe either that was miss written or because they're not speak they're not better by getting a great player out of there so I miss quotes tim so expe- Joe Joe Listen you were you were spot on Jalen Ramsey never changed his stance which is what you asserted from the get-go and I would assume just finally came to a point where it just made no sense to have him on a roster when he wasn't going to win this transaction happened yesterday the first thing came to my mind is how often the people I was always talking to that this was going to work out for Jalen Ramsey like there was no fretting I didn't hear any fear and now that this is resolved itself in the way that it has it kind of plays into the tone that I've been hearing all along now I was talking to a source obviously familiar with Jalen Ramsey. They said that he's excited considering this a fresh start to be with the rams I think one of the questions that I had in talking to ram source last night was why not hold onto Marcus Peters to have opposite Jalen Ramsey in terms of making this movie now one thing that the ram source said to me is that it looked like it was clear that less need did not want to pay marcus. Peters beyond this year he's eligible unrestrained the free agency next year and it was better just to rip off quote unquote the band-aid now so then it becomes well who is opposite Jalen Ramsey for this game against the Atlanta Falcons they mentioned that two thousand seventeen when cal Roby Coleman I came to the teen that he did fill in for a keep to Leon outside first and second down and then on Nichols would have him excuse me on third down having a nickel or sometimes have troy hill on the outside and then have an RC in the middle so expect something like that or combination of that against the Falcons either way Julio Jones saw the rams problems in the short turn no because the opposite of the ball is atrocious right now and that's been there issue as far as being a front now what I will say is it does play into them getting better though like we can focus on golfing what this offense has been doing but with the guy like Jalen Ramsey not only does he hell Aaron Donald give him a maybe a half a second more to get to the quarterback he also may be able to steal a possession to for you and this ninety four was out there so air down gets another piece on the back end that can help him hold off quarterbacks for a second for him to get there and that's that's really all I can think about so maybe you
