"To go down in the Dan Patrick Show recap last night's game Monday night football between the chiefs and the Ravens Doc rivers gets fired. CONGRATS to the Tampa Bay lightning winning the Stanley Cup baseball's playoffs begin today tonight for games chiefs handled the Ravens thirty four, twenty a little bit later on. We'll dive into the DOC rivers firing the Great Comedian Keegan Michael. Key. Will stop by coming up next hour. Louis Riddick. One of the analysts on Monday night football we'll recap. What we saw last night in Baltimore between the chiefs and the Ravens you like get in touch with the program you can dial us up each seven seven three DP show email address ep Dan Patrick Dot Com twitter handle at DP show, say good morning to peacock. That's our TV partner and also our radio affiliates number three, hundred and sixty, two, the world we love pairing athletes off against one another ali-frazier Borg McEnroe Bird Magic Brady, versus manning in sometimes a great athlete doesn't have a direct rival. Michael Jordan did not have a direct rival. We tried to boost some people up to be a direct rival didn't happen. Lebron James Really hasn't had one either Patrick Mahomes in the Mar Jackson seemed to be headed towards incredible careers right now it appears as if mahomes is in the Lebron Jordan territory that big match up last night didn't really materialize mahomes was brilliant. Jackson struggled but you know couple things you have to keep in mind. The March Jackson's only twenty three. A lot of the great quarterbacks of all time probably didn't get their careers started till after they were twenty three. Know they went to four years of college came out not everybody started right away. Tom Brady didn't start right away. Joe Montana didn't start right away. It happens in. Jackson. Last night he was the other quarterback because Mahomes was brilliant once again and you think these two quarterbacks we thought they were GonNa match-up in last year's postseason didn't happen. But nothing creates a rivalry like a big moment like the postseason and they seem to be destined to meet again. Even if mahomes looks like he's well ahead right now, Jackson might get a shot at redemption in the playoffs in just a couple of months and a couple of things stood out yesterday. Baltimore is so good when they get ahead their great front runner but Kansas City. If you don't get out on top of them early then you're in trouble and you saw that you know if you go down and you kick a field goal and then Kansas City comes down scores a touchdown. Then you're off to the races because you play behind with Kansas City you play right into their hands and mahomes last night was wonderful. When you're throwing for three touchdowns running for a touchdown, he has not lost a game in September and his career. He's not throwing an interception in September in his career thirty two touchdowns, zero interceptions. He's ten Ino-, in the month of September and here's mahomes talking after the game he had know touchdown passes in a variety of ways could be long touchdown could be an underhand touchdown it could be a tackle eligible touchdown. Here's Patrick Mahomes after last night's win. We had rented my first restoring against the Patriots. They had.
Is Stainless Steel Really Stainless?
"Bathroom, sinks and kitchen appliances to New York's Chrysler building, and the Saint Louis. Gateway. Arch. The world sometimes seems like it's covered in stainless steel. And why not the material is not only sturdy and versatile, but also stainless as the name implies, but is it really impossible to stain stainless steel? Stainless steel is a family of materials that gets its handle from corrosion and oxidation resistant properties that protect it from rust and unsightly botches. Generally, these steals our mixture of iron end at least ten point, five percent chromium sometimes rounded to eleven percent by engineers. When exposed to oxygen and moisture a for instance, when a stainless steel pan is nick door dinged chromium is an element that produces thin oxide film, the coats the product. This self repairing feature of stainless steel ensures the object will always look smooth and shiny. Various European American metallurgists claim to have invented. This wonders material. A We do know that Croup ironworks in Germany created an acid resistant steel as early as nineteen eight, it was used for the hell of a yacht. To other German researchers discovered the relationship between chromium content and corrosion resistance that metal containing at least ten point five percent chromium had a greater resistance to corrosion. Meanwhile American. elwood Haynes patented one type of stainless steel precursor in nine eleven and English researcher. Harry brearley developed a similar material around the same time. After a four year dustup in which hanes successfully opposed brearley's attempt to patent his version of the steel, the to pooled resources to market their wares as the American stainless steel. Company. These and other stainless bells found their way into cutlery airplane parts, Gulf clubs, and Adams almost immediately. But not all stainless steel is created equal. There are four main types of stainless steel classified by structure and composition. The most common variety is static sixty, five percent of the stainless steel produced. All's in this category. A static steals can be found in products ranging from cutlery and cookware to automotive trim and industrial applications. Immaterial pains at least sixteen percent chromium no more than zero point one, five percent carbon and usually includes nickel or manganese for added their ability. Meanwhile. For riddick stainless steels contain up to twenty seven percent chromium often as well as aluminum or titanium, but if little or no nickel. means that while these materials are highly resistant to Croatian, they're less durable than their austin cousins. For riddick steals are more affordable than Austin attic varieties and are commonly used in Mufflers, exhaust, systems kitchen counters, and sinks. Then we have Martin's stainless steels which are less corrosion resistant than the first two types, but are noted for their extreme strength and durability. Of the material contains twelve fourteen percent chromium along with small amounts of Molybdenum and carbon. These steals also contain little to no nickel less than two percent. Martin's stainless steels are magnetic and are often used in products where this feature's useful like a kitchen back splash to which spice rack or other metal object can be attached without using fasteners. A finally duplex stainless steels combined the benefits of Austin night and fair right to provide enhanced decay resistance and beefed up strength and durability. metallurgists typically look to create a mix that's half Austin and half foretich. The result is material that features more chromium and less nickel than his found in Pure Austin at steals about twenty to twenty, five percent chromium and five percent nickel as well as a high level of Molybdenum. These deals are primarily used in chemical plants and piping applications. You may have noticed our use of the term resistant when referring to these stainless steels capacity for avoiding blemishes. So is the material just stain resistant or completely stain proof? And despite the hardy protection that it affords users, stainless steel is more stain less and stainless in other words while the material is highly resistant to discoloration blemishes and other imperfections, it's not completely impenetrable. Just look at the Gateway Arch, which is starting to show its age with breast and K after five decades of welcoming tourists to saint. Louis. The protective layer of film covering a stainless steel object can break down over time leading to corrosion and pitting. In addition compounds like chloride, hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide often caused the film to stress and crack. The level of rest resistance provided by a particular steel depends largely on the materials used to create it the more chromium, the more corrosion protection. The sturdier stainless steels also feature at least eight percent nickel, which provides further defense against tarnish. Some products are tagged with numbers indicating their proportions of chromium and nickel. For instance, eighteen over ten flatware is sold at a premium because it has eighteen percent chromium and ten percent nickel content providing greater protection against corrosion than ordinary flatware. For household users it's important to understand that many metals advertised a stainless steel are actually stainless steel played it. The plate is corrosion resistant, but is susceptible to damage if cut or scratched deep enough to reach the. Material because the plates can also wear off over time, buyers should clarify whether a particular product is made completely of stainless steel or simply plated. Whether played it or not. You're stainless steel appliances and other products need to be cleaned. Most of the time good old fashioned soap and water will do the trick for tougher stains. Professionals recommend variety of household remedies. A couple of dabs of olive oil or window cleaner can remove most of those pesky fingerprints and smudges while white or cider vinegar will restore shine. A don't use steel wool pads or harsh cleaning powders as they'll scratched surface. If you need to remove burnt on food from stainless steel pan, let it soak in warm water and then clean it with baking soda and Gentle Nylon or plant based scouring pad.

Guest Teacher Oli Bridge: How to Build Video Funnels for Your Business
"Dive into the first part of your video. Funnel engine conversion funnels how about using a personalized video respond to a new inquiry on your website rousing just foreign back a regular email. While as we researching the white paper. Last year I found that customers a seventy percent more likely to respond to emails. If the email has a visual of you in it think about it. You'll video that you'll Sunday is proof that you've taken the time for that. Customer and human psychology means a much more likely to reciprocate the effort amherst spongy. How about using videos to get more leads to show for sales demos but dropped personal video in the days of the hours before the meeting will the Denner. They'll see as a real person behind that calendar appointment until much more invested in the process. Meaning they'll be less likely to cancel all how about using video to get leads to attend your weapons just like with sales calls reach out to them personally insisting that impo beforehand means we prime feel comforted eager to show up and support. I'll do this myself. Every weapon run the attendance rates engagement on my weapon is just night and day. Compared to when I was leading ultimate emails you can even use video to follow up maybe off to a trade show meeting or to rekindle a stagnant sales proposal. The crucial fan is by doing things just a little bit differently. I'm putting in just a little bit of extra effort on humanity. You will stand out against the tide of regular emails. That person gets every day and you'll be more likely to come through and get a response. Okay just a little brief signs include here want to explain to you very quickly while this stuff works why.

Controlling the Activity of Cell and Gene Therapies with Precision
"One of the challenges selling gene therapies pose is how to control how much and when a desired protein is delivered. Obsidian therapeutics has developed a platform that allows a small molecule drug to control with precision the and level of protein expression from these therapies. We spoke to Paul Wotton. Ceo of obsidian Therapeutics about the company's platform technology. How it works. And how it may improve the safety and efficacy of cell and gene therapies. Paul facts for joining us. Pleasure to be here. We're GONNA talk about obsidian its platform for creating controllable cell and gene therapies and the implications of this technology. We've seen the emergence Cell gene therapies in recent years particularly in the area of cats are. This is come in the form of Cartesian therapies. What would you say? The challenges these therapies face today. Well I think the challenge which we've identified and addressing at Obsidian is really about how to provide physician control over both cell and gene therapies and That would include card Z's so today if you get a prescription from a physician you go to the pharmacy and you get a prescription that is written for a particular drug Given that particular those in terms of quantity and then taken once a day for example when you get a gene therapy The physician that she doesn't know precisely what those is. GonNa take the facts and more importantly conradi control it will I need to do is to be able to provide Precision control over both selling gene therapies and their ability to express proteins by using what we call signs of drives here at Obsidian. Well obsidian platform allows the physician to control the the expression of protein and terms of the clinical studies behind these therapies. How much of a therapeutic range is it? Is it a safety issue an issue so The very question the technology itself was derived from a platform that was invented at Stanford University Cocco professor homeless. And and what we do is we were able to instruct cells to produce what we call truck responsive domains refused to proteins of interest and those truck responsive Mainz then controlled by the Ministry of a small molecule drugs and the expression of the protein is directly proportional to those of the small molecule. Drunkenness given those little molecule truck that we moving into the clinic Cuidad cells in the next eighteen to twenty. Four months is actually a drug test. It's very safe. Drug Sweat established it was originally approved for using humans in the nineteen fifties. So it's very whether stop this track record. Today is used to treat altitude sickness in some people. So we're GONNA use that as a truck that we control protein expression with using technology. The most thing about this drug is very wide dose range. So there's a lot of points on the dial that will enable us to provide precise dosing of sides of cons and proteins For both so I'm gene therapies. So how does this work? You just attaching a receptor to the south as if that's a great question so what we do. Is We genetically engineer? So manufacture a fusion protein in actual fact and that season protein is structured in such a way with the cell produces all the time but it started in such a way that against concert off to the precious time in the cell and which is effectively the sort of sash container within a cell recognizes proteins to the slightly misspelled it and when we give a small molecule drug. Su Hyphen talks to sell. We'll happens is drug responsive to Maine on that fusion protein changes its structure and that means now that the frozen does not get carted off to the proteas son and plenty the road. We can control the amount of drug This given into the system also means we control the amount of protein that does not get off to the concept of the process. That's why we can vary the level and also the timing of which proteins are expressed by by cells. Are you able to use the same drug across targets or does the particular protein? You're trying to act on affect the drunk. You can use for that domain. Actually the technology now is that we can control Multiple proteins using this one single truck. We have also develops The technology using different drugs that we like you said there's all the reasons I mentioned earlier that we've been able to control of variety of proteins from membrane bound proteins overweight through to transcription factors which can produce. Proteins can be secreted by cells. So we really have found dates approacing that we haven't been able to regulate now using a substance and this was a breakthrough company about twelve months ago identifying that particular drug and the associated. We'll be their main roads alongside it in order to be able to control protein expression of numerous sites. Kind things I'll to I l fifteen. I'll twelve as well as various transcription factors. We worked on this well. How precise actually riddick sergey have precisely? Are you able to control a gene or cell therapy with this approach? Actually that's amazing precision because the approach that she looks at the protein expression in response to those of the drug that follows the type of ESCA that you've signed with a typical pharmacology experiment from decades ago. Which is very well defined. So we've been able to really regulate expression in terms of quantity Very effectively and also the timing of it can be controlled tightly as well. Typically control protein expression. I want to remove the drug because back down to normal levels within six to hours. And can you fully modulate the activity with this approach? Can you up and down regulated or shut it off it will? Yeah that's that's your question Nelson's both so The you mentioned a military things like kill switches for protein expression We don't have just an on off switch but it is also nothing down switches. Well so the more drug you would actually give it to somebody. The more of the sexes logic. Here's somebody for example The mall protein expression you get as a result and so those dependent way of being able to control protein expression and to my knowledge. There isn't another system out there that she's able to do that. There are companies using synthetic biology to kind of do the same thing as a synthetic biology approach. This is definitely that policy platform that we have here. It's one. That is interesting for me to come into the stage Mike Trick. I grew up in the small molecule world initially and Gravitas talks by attack was saying today is really a fusion of traditional small molecule pharmacokinetics combined with tossing edge technology in biology which is where the industry is heading.

"We please this is all just doesn't work when it's hot outside Riddick fan a bucket of ice and they shoot the blows cold air they give it no you're talking yes it appears the shoot has hit the fan premiering Thursday April second on CBS breaking news as our coronavirus coverage continues here on CBS two news at six o'clock so a lot of people they seem to think coronaviruses not a big threat to people under the age of sixty five especially not young people but the numbers are proving that to be untrue Orange County has ninety five confirmed cases almost all of them are in people under the age of sixty five one Orange County patient is a child fifty five our ages eighteen to forty nine twenty four of these cases are ages fifty to sixty four only fifteen of the county's cases are people over the age of fifty six Ventura county is also breaking its case count down by age again most of the county's thirty cases are younger people one is a child twenty year people between the ages of eighteen and sixty four only nine of the cases are people over the age of sixty five and in New York City more than half of the four thousand plus cases there are people under the age of fifty only forty four percent of them are over the age of fifty tonight we're hearing from several people who are battling coronavirus themselves and they tell Brian Todd this disease is no joke Kevin Harris with a painful cough cough he's laid up in a hospital in Warren Ohio a victim of coronavirus experts say is one of the first symptoms you feel when you have the virus but it's a certain kind of cough a call then a flow can sometimes cause a really runny nose and sort of Mars absurd mucus and feeling in inside in in your coffin in in in your nose where is this virus seems to be much more of a dry cough fatigue fever and body aches can set in in the first couple of days you have it experts say Lisa Merck isolated at her home in Colorado describes how that felt my muscles ached in my joints ached really bad it felt like somebody was like stabbing me with an ice pick doctors say even with those symptoms it's sometimes hard to know if you have coronavirus getting tested is critical and is Hawaii five O. star Daniel dae Kim says unpleasant the test itself was really awkward and a little painful because they show huge swap into your nose a few days in there's a telltale sign of coronavirus as the infection can progress the symptoms will change from just a dry cough to actually difficulty breathing Kevon Harris says his breathing got so difficult his intense nausea actually brought relief after I threw up I could breathe once you get to the other side of it you can breathe a little bit better I mean it's the weirdest thing you think you're gonna die during one of those episodes you I mean you know you're gonna die but then you don't then there's the feeling of isolation for those self quarantine and even hospitalized patients play Bentley said his locked hospital room in Georgia felt like a jail cell even when care givers came out they have to wear a suit and mask so you know I really can't say and are you know they're glad that now that so like coming into what they have to do and then they leave so this is a terrible fate and I mean a lot.
NFL players approve new CBA, runs through 2030
"Radio one big measure that allows the NFL to move forward with business as usual is the approval of the new CBA time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless players this weekend voting in favor of the new collective bargaining agreement which means there will be labor peace for the next decade it also means that we will see a seventeen game scheduled as early as twenty twenty one the vote was close closer than many had expected ESPN analyst Damien woody clearly there's a lot of work going on as far as it relates to this new CBA deal you're talking about a difference with two thousand roughly two thousand please holding only fifty votes sixty votes were the difference on what this new CBA passing another narrative was you had the big money players you know saying no and rank and file is going to be it's going to follow through but that wasn't the case that was clearly not the case but it's both clearly there was a lot of racquetball player they did not agree with that with this new CBA also the union has some work to do CDA passes this weekend but as you heard passed by a margin of just sixty votes ESPN front office insider Louis Riddick yeah it's one of the situations where obviously you can you can tell that there's a lot of the desert there's a lot of uncertainty when you have the you know a boat that was separated by less than a hundred boats as far as accepting this new deal not accepting his new deal obviously there were people not just the top one percent of your top five percent with the rank and file as well that we're not comfortable with this you're talking about making deals like this but I understand that was part of the rank and file one point time and understand what our media hundred thousand dollar increase would mean but I you know I also believe that you know there really wasn't a chance of there being a work stoppage in twenty twenty they're gonna play games this year regardless and I think you know having been on the front office side of things and I've been around contract negotiators for the better part of the past two years of my post playing career twenty two years my post playing career when you have leverage you have time on your side the smart ones are the ones who try to lock you into long term deals early and entice you with cash flow immediately because they know they're going to make it back on the on the on the backside they're gonna make out it sounds like that's exactly what the owners got the players to do and I think once you start breaking it down and talking to people who really understand how CBA negotiations once before but the revenue sharing split actually really is and how revenue is going to explode once now owner start negotiating TV deals your movie centered on some one time prior to the two thousand eleven CBA that we were basically net net fifty fifty partners in now we're forty seven percent partners and we're going to forty eight point five percent part how did that were not actually fifty fifty partners anymore when we basically are the capital where the human capital and tried the game and we signed a deal that with the Europe tour early and we didn't have really any reason to do so because they were going to stop us from playing really this year anyway so there's a lot of questions I'm sure and that that right there it looked like it in the wake of both played itself out we really didn't get into this look man I mean I'm I'm I'm happy that he won because football is my life and that's you know I everything I have I owe to playing the game at the highest level inflated manifold the deal making deal making and owners are very good deal making I think they showed once again you're talking about the vote we have a lot of social reaction the Twitter reaction early on on the show in the ravens Marlon Humphrey tweeted that five hundred players didn't vote on the CVA we have the numbers last that's about right what do you say to that that's ridiculous man knocking Buhari's thing it's American will know what happens when you know you get into a situation involved voting and then you just don't even participate but then you're one of the people were complaining about how many things turn out if it doesn't turn out the word benefits you will you have no right to say anything that is one of the most important things outside of obviously what is going on a global basis right now which believe me I've gotten my attention and everyone else is but as far as your profession is concerned what is more important now than a ball players and his cast your vote one way or another educate yourself about how this new CD is going to affect you tell me five hundred plus people dissent I'm either on vacation I don't have time but you know I don't like don't we are you kidding me that's amazing to me that that the medically non participants when it when it comes to a democratic partisan voting there's just no excuse for his non otherwise don't don't say a word please don't say a word whether or not this is good or bad you don't they work if you have no you have no voice anymore you just elect not to participate that's very very disappointed new CDA passing by sixty votes with five hundred members
Doncic’s 30-Point Triple-Double, Porzingis Lead Mavericks Past Pelicans In OT
"So now we look forward to the Dallas Mavericks who just had a pretty big game. They're in seventh place right now. Six would ideal like we talked about last podcast there in six place and the rest of the standings ended up as they are as of now they'd be up against the Denver Nuggets. Which in my opinion would be the easiest matchup for any team really in this western conference standings not to give any disrespect Denver Nuggets or what they've done all season their forty one and twenty. They're great team. But when you look at the Los Angeles Lakers the clippers even the rockets. Those teams just seem a little bit more intimidating so the Mavericks WanNa get higher up in the standings so that they can potentially dodge playing the Lakers or the Clippers. And so they're only half game back from doing this the To eclipsing the Oklahoma City thunder in the standings and so just few days after Lucas. Twenty first birthday he would be going up against Zion Williamson for the first time. And the Pelicans the Pelicans at this point are on a two-game Skid and Zion was playing his first ever back to back so this was a big deal because obviously when he first came back they were totally babying him and having him on minutes restriction not making play back to back and now he's filing gotten that level where he feels pretty comfortable. He's been in pretty good shape and so this is the first game back. It's good test for him to see where he's at physically the PELICANS would also be without. Jj riddick he'll probably offer a couple of weeks with an injury which is really unfortunate for them as they're trying to make this push to get into that last playoff spot so unfortunate for them but in this game it was so close and so back and forth there were thirteen lead changes in this one and eighteen times where the game was tied. The Mavericks would be the ones ahead at the end of the first quarter. Twenty four twenty two. They then had their lead extended out to eleven before the Pelicans brought close again and again and the Mavericks would have the halftime lead up by just two points at halftime. The Mavericks had eleven blocks so welcome to the block party. Three of them being against Zion. So crazy stat for the for the Dallas Mavericks but nothing would still separate these two teams in the third each team scoring thirty points each meaning. The Mavericks would still have a two point lead. The fourth quarter was much of the same very competitive very back and forth and for the majority of the fourth. The Mavericks would have the lead and any time that the Pelicans come close or even tie it as they did a few times in this one they would just push back out but with two and a half to go Ingram. Hit a big three to take the lead finally for the. Pelicans one zero seven one zero six he would then extend it out with a tough fadeaway so pelicans would go up by three then with the mavericks down by one with thirty six seconds ago. It was currie not steph curry his brother. Seth Curry who would regain the lead on a huge three in the corner? And so now the Pelicans down one twelve one nine and seven seconds left Nikola Meli who had missed his last six three pointers. Got The inbounds. Pass put it up and knocked it down to tie the game and send it into overtime with porzingas missing a fadeaway game winner. So what kind of confidence do you have to have when you've missed six three pointers in a row? But the US do they draw up. They didn't drop the play for me to take this three. There's no way he was just the open guy. They gave it to him and he shot it with confidence which is something you should give them a pat on the back door because if I've missed six threes in a row I'm not taking another one for the rest of the game. I wouldn't have missed six zero because I wouldn't have taken that many but could also him for you know lock in and putting it down so great clutch bus bucket there for the Pelicans to try and take this one and not with the game tied at one eighteen in overtime with one eleven to go. It's a Luca. Danni H who hits a step back three Super Clutch? Take the lead late. In the game and later he would then split defenders with a pass and find Porzingis who goes and spikes it down extending their lead to one twenty. Three one. Nineteen effectively icing. This game the Mavericks would win this game. One Twenty seven one twenty three and this game could honestly not have been any tighter. It was close the entire game. Both both teams kind of pushing out for some leads but then again at the end of each quarter they would just come back to two point deficits and then tied obviously to go to overtime so and crazy game where stupor back and forth very competitive and it was just a great game to watch the Mavericks into this game. We're just five and fifteen in games decided by five points or less so they're not necessarily clutch when it comes down to the wire they seem to always drop games but for whatever reason in this one they came out on top and we're able to hold on for a big reason. Why are there two budding? Stars and Luca Danni Jake and Kris Porzingis.

Still Trying to digest that story that we saw in sports illustrated that the Tampa Bay buccaneers buzz. With Tom Brady is not going away. Louis Riddick the ESPN NFL analyst. Joining us from the scouting combine in Indianapolis Lewis. Thanks for joining us. How do you separate fact from fiction with Tom Brady? That's a great question. Does a great job right of concealing the motives and intentions are many. Let's everybody out there kind of twist around throughout all of these different theories and teams come and go as far as WHO's GonNa be the team that's GonNa Land Him. Who's not going to be the team that lands them. He's going to go back to New England a good back to New England. Yeah it's It's a mystery right now but there's one thing I do know then. And and that is the people who I know who would have some insight as to just how what really means something to this guy really does believe that this is this is not about money. This is really about respect. It's about making sure that he has the things around him. And people understand what he needs to have around him at this point in order for him to really play at his highest level and I think that's ultimately is going to be where he winds up going. There's no way I'm GonNa go to someplace that's in the midst of rebuilding something and doesn't have the weapons. He's never going to go through a season like he went through last year again. Where you saw game after game is frustrated and exasperated that you've ever seen him look. He's never going to go through that again if you ran the Patriots. Let's say you're bill belichick since he's the GM as well like what? What are you planning on doing? What IS PLANNING. And what's planned? Yeah I I think honestly the best thing for the Patriots investing for Thomas for those guys to reunite if they both want to continue to win in a way that they're used to winning so if I'm if I'm bill I think I'm probably taking the approach of being maybe more aggressive and more forthright in terms of getting the kinds of players that come to New England. That would that would help Tom. The best particularly on offense without messing up anything that they're trying to do overall from an overall team concept. 'cause you know all about the team and he's never gonNA sacrifice what's best for the team. You know expensive trying to just get one or two players but I would be. I would probably step outside of my comfort zone and say hey look we're gonna do everything we can and we're going to be up front about it as far as recruiting some players. That could come in here particularly on offense and help you namely some weapons on the perimeter. Which is something that all of us could see last year. They didn't have they just didn't have tried with Muhammed to Newburgh. Mohammed was never going to be that guy they tried with Antonio Brown you. You couldn't count on a Muslim better time. And you know it's it's one of those things that they need to be able to get someone out there to really help him and they need to assure him that they're going to do everything they can to do that. They need a presence in the middle of the field. Something to replace. Although it's never going to be like they need that position. That position has been vital to Tom's career and they need to make sure that they do everything they can to do that. So if I'm bill I'm saying look. This is what our plan would be in order to try and make sure that we never have a repeat of what happened last year because really time to start over somewhere else. I mean I guess it's possible but there's so he's the Patriot. Way is so ingrained in him and he has helped the belt the Patriot way so much the point where. I'm just wondering what he thinks he'll be like somewhere else and whether or not he can go ahead and make another organization kind of operate the way that he's used to because the way he's used operating has made him the greatest winner of all time and that that would be a tremendous shock to me. I mean I'm not going to say I can think for Tom Brady. But that'd be a tremendous shock to me and a tremendous risk for me to take but okay so let's say brady goes elsewhere Are you drafting or are you bring in a free agent? I'm bringing in better. I'm bringing somebody who I I'm probably doing a little bit of both. Okay I I but I I I'd be. I would be trying to make sure I could bring in someone with a tremendously high. I Q they can get on the same page with Tom. Quick in a very short amount of time given that who knows what's going to happen with this new. Cba and how much more practice time is going to be taken away from coaches and players which is something that people kind of forgetting. Now look some of these great quarterbacks get ticked off during the season when their guys aren't in the right places. They're not able to Gel with them. What do you think that happens? That happens because they practiced. Football's the only game. You get better at if you practice so you better have the right profile player. Whether it's the draft or a veteran and someone who can operate again at his level intellectually or close to it very quickly so I think it's not just about height weight speed. It's about the right kinds of players that had that same kind of over the top commitment to the game time. Has I mean there's this there's so many things that go into it and so much risk involved for him to go somewhere else. I mean there's this really is in my view all right This too and the redskins and I I don't know I mean it's not a report. It's it's actually happening. That they met with borough and and to. But could you see this actually playing out if all the medical check out onto a Ron Rivera going in and maybe drafting his quarterback sure I mean we've seen it before we've seen we've seen it over you know during the during history play out that way over the course of history that people when they've come come in and take over an organization just inherently say. It's anything that was here before me is not mine. And therefore I'm just GonNa wipe the slate clean and do things my way. And they get turned off to other players and Kinda like rubberstamps them in a negative way and I think that could possibly happen to Haskins Rod and can possibly you know just kind of not take a liking to him. Hold last year again. What whatever whatever terminology want us to start over? I think it'd be ridiculous. I think that would be totally throwing context out the window as to just how dysfunctional that place was last year from the Gecko from the very first time that it was announced. That happens to be their quarterback. It started leaking out immediately that he wasn't Detroit to the coaching staff. And or the choice of some people in the scouting department and that it was danced choice. You those kind of things. What do you think's going to happen to the kid? You think he's GonNa always at that young age show the right attitude and the right work ethic and the right demeanor. Of course he's not going to just throw that out the window if they draft to and they pass on Chase Yang who I know for a fact that the most important Meno organization being the owner loves. I think it'd just be ridiculous I really do. But we'll see do you think chase young's best player in the draft. I think his best. He is the best player in the draft. Yes he can change a football game and is shown he can change it over and over and over again in a way that made that very few other players in this draft can do. Joe Broke and change a football game because how good he showed that this year to hold on Borough. I. I'm yeah I would draft a number one overall to at that position simply because of the fact that he doesn't have the durability history and you could you can say all you want all things being equal I would take too and that would be the case for me. The fact of the matter is they're not equal. He does have a history and it's not just a lot of that history is caused by a little bit by him in terms of maybe just not getting the bar. His hands past enough getting taking some hits that he shouldn't take which leads increases the risk of getting injured. So there's some things that are two hours on doing. But if he was if he didn't have the hip issue and he hadn't had two surgeries on his on his ankle on his lower extremity. I would take him over. Joe Borough quite honestly okay chased is the guy. There's no doubt about that. We're talking to Louis Riddick. Espn NFL analyst. You can see the scouting combine on ABC and ABC special. That Lou will be on from five till six PM Eastern tomorrow. Also when you you look at these forty yard dash times and and I know it's for amusement only in my opinion but you may think different because you know your former player. I WanNa know these wide receiver. You know these guys you run a four to forty nobody ever publicizes. How big their hands are which I find interesting but also the other part is. I think. This is more of a quickness game than a speed game when you need to get from point A. to point B. because my quarterback only has X. number of seconds to get rid of that ball. I would rather no. I would rather take a quick guy over a fast guy. Your thoughts on that. Yeah sure I mean by by position. Yeah some you know. A lot of times. Short area quickness is more or less the deciding factor in terms of you being able to win or not then actual long speed and then take it a step further. There's plenty of guys as you were alluding to that are great on the clock which is time speed but their functional speed with pads on a football game is not nearly the same. We've seen it over and over and over again. And we've seen adopt visit way guys who don't time very well in the clock. I'll jerry rice. Who goes on the beat greatest player maybe in NFL history? How IS THE JERRY? Never got caught from behind Louis exactly. That's that's that's the thing. There's there's an art form to running the forty. There's so much that goes into it from your start to your shoulder. Heightening you come out of the star to your stride length to you're saying the lack all that stuff and sometimes guys just don't feel good when they run and it just doesn't work out that way it doesn't work out the way they want but Jerry when he got on the football field. Jerry had functional speed. Jerry had functional quickness the kind of things that you're talking about and he was very smart. He knew Anglesey knew all that stuff and having played against him a few times. I can tell you this. I never thought that this was the guy who ran. Four six four seven in the forty. He smoked everybody everybody. So but there's there's guys in this drafted wide receiver. I will say that these kids are fast this year but Henry Rugs from Alabama Henry Pros. Third is legit player. He's just not a flash in the PAN who can just run a fast forty. This kid can flat out like Jerry Judy. Although he he jerry. Judy runs four. Four or five. Yeah he's slow people are like he's he's. He's the best route runner in the draft by far by far. He's dying of mine so I mean it's it's a quality draft this year. I know the fortieth dominating all the talk but these kids were running fast. They're also very very good players. I think it's the best draft I've seen in twenty years for. I love CD lamb absolutely. He's fantastic and he was one of those ran for five. I know on the field but on the field when you're talking about quickness with the ball in his hands he's electric. He's like a video game he just make something out of nothing. There were two or three plays watched and I went. There was nothing there. Four guys around him. And somehow he scored a touchdown Texas in Texas. The Texas game Comes to mind immediately. He's this very very good with the ball in his hands. Great Vision Great Functional Strength Balance. Toughness I mean all those things that you can't really measure here that really mean the most. This is just a way to kind of get comparison. You know on a level playing field so you have some way to sort these guys athletically but you know I mean you. You've watched the game forever. You you know what really matters all right final thing? The show has a bet with Jeff. Darlington Jeff Darlington. Kind of reporting that Brady. He'd be stunned. Brady went back to the Patriots. Guy On my show Paulie Bet Darlington. Five hundred dollars. Five hundred dollars goes to the Jimmy V. Foundation.
Bengals at the Combine in Indianapolis, taking a closer look at Joe Burrow
"With us here from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis where we will be all week so much going on. I'm waiting next with Adam. Schefter Louis Riddick Todd mcshay and Mike Tannenbaum just to catch you up right now. Here's what's happening today in Indianapolis. It will be a very busy week. At Five o'clock eastern though owners are expected to meet players to talk about the new CBA which could expand the playoffs and move to a seventeen game regular season. We've got forty seven. Nfl head coaches and GMT. We'll be talking today. You're also hear from SEC. Standouts Joe Borough and to a ton of Aloha who also addressed the media earlier today. Jonesboro put on an absolute show as you know on route to a national championship for Lsu setting an FBI. Single season record with sixty touchdown passes and Ditto. While completing a whopping seventy six percents of his passes and not only that but bro won the heisman trophy in dominant fashion receiving a record ninety point seven percent of the first place votes here. Our previous comments from Joe Borough on February seventeenth during a reception. For the Davey. O'brien award. He had this to say I do have leveraged the Bengals have their process and I have my process. We haven't even gotten to the combine yet. There's a lot of things that happened. Leading up to the draft. A lot of information gathered bras. Mother Robin shot down the idea. Her son does not want to play for the bengals. Saying we have no idea where that came from. It's a story out there that has created that doesn't have any substance at least from our perspective here Hasbro earlier today here at the combine. Of course I want to be the first pick. That's that's every kid's dream you know I've worked really really hard for this opportunity and I'm blessed to be in this position. I'm a ball player. Whoever picks me on my go show up? How play whoever for forever dressing? You know. I'm just not going to be presumptuous. About what they WANNA DO I. It's the draft. You guys have been covered it for a long time and you never know what's going to happen so we played a month longer than everyone else and everyone else's been training a month longer than us you know. I wanted to put. I don't I didn't think I'd be able to put my best foot forward here at the combine so I wanted to wait till pro day had another whole month of training and just be the best that I could be when everyone when. Everyone's eyes are on me. You know coming in. If you're the number one pick the teen is picking number one. Is there for a reason? So you're going to have to come in. There's going to be ups and downs and you've got to stay steady through the process. Our research tells us about Joe. Borough is his own man. He's not going to be talked into saying things for other people's benefits so if that's what he said. That's that's fantastic. I'm looking forward to getting to know him getting to meet him through. The process haven't been able to sit down with them yet. But we've got that on the horizon. We'll talk more about Joe. Boroughs plans to hold off throwing here at the combine. But might I'll start with you in terms of do you want? Do you not want to play for the being. You have any issues at all with where we landed at least at this point. No I mean as I said last week Joe Borough at the end he does not have leverage. The bengals have the first pick in the draft. If they want to draft. Joe Joe Borough. That's where he's GonNa go now with that. Said I think it's incumbent upon sack Taylor in the Bengal organization to create the Right Environment. Where he could come in and they could build something sustainable and truly transformative so. I think where we wended. Wendy is appropriate last week. He could've handled that better but to Joe Boroughs credit. I think they tweak things I think they're in a good spot now. He's been well-coached past week. Tower doesn't it. Yeah and Adema to your Do All your contacts. It appears that borough likely young he's projected pick. I still think that's where the bengals ultimately go. And they're sitting there and that's about this a team that needs somebody to revitalize that franchise and they are expected to look to trade Andy Dalton at some point this off season and so when you're sitting there in division with Lamar Jackson there in Baltimore think that they know that they have to get somebody in there. That's going to put some points on the Board Baker Mayfield Cleveland and this is going to be the pick for the Cincinnati bengals. Even Joe was considering trying to exercise some kind of leverage really the only leverage you have is withhold your services and not playing not report even if he was thinking along those lines. Let's say he's doing a deep dive trying to figure out exactly. Just what the Cincinnati offer as far as developing me as a quarterback. Could you blame him? Could you really blame him for wanting to dig? Deep on exactly what? What does the future going to look like during over the course of my rookie contract with this football team would exactly? What exactly is Mike Brown's commitment to go ahead and building out this roster around me because we all know a lot of what's going to happen to him has nothing to do with him and has everything to do with everything that's going to be around him. Just look at the past three or four drafts. And how certain players have benefited from going to certain to certain teams? Just look at l a look at the difference between jar rookie year in his second year. Sean mcvay came in. It flipped his rookie year. People were saying Jared Goff to Canada. All of a sudden his second year is like. Oh wait a minute. Maybe he's not so bad you couldn't blame him. If that was a thought Lewis to that point I also think an opportunity. If you're Zach Taylor to say hey what's happened in the past. It's irrelevant we're going to myself with you and we're going to build something great and we can't worry about what's happened before we have a lot of work to do. But if I'm the bengals if I have a hey coach Taylor. That's worked with quarterbacks. Like you mentioned Jared Goff Joe Boroughs Billy and character. That's a great opportunity for the bengals. Sino three things one. Is that if something were to go on with. The bengals is not going to happen in public and this has been addressed in the past week if it's going to happen behind the scenes so whatever we hear from this point on. Don't even don't even look at it. Don't think about it because it has nothing to do with with what is going on behind the scenes. The second thing is this guy's different cab he beats. It goes a Beatles drummer. He doesn't care what anyone else has done. In the past what everyone else is GonNa do in the future? He's going to do what's best for Joe Borough but the third thing I know about him is he's a football guy he's his. His brothers played linebacker at safety at Nebraska. His Dad's a almost four decades coach in football. He's a football guy at its core. He's from Ohio. Obviously I think when it's all said and done he winds up going in Cincinnati if he's number one overall pick but again. If it's GonNa Happen it's GonNa Happen. Not In the media. It's GonNa happen behind the scenes again. Joe Bro not expected to throw on Thursday. He said he just wasn't ready yet. Not a huge deal. Sam Darnold Kyla Murray. The last two years have opted not to throw here at the combine as well. What did make headlines on Sunday? Oddly enough pros hand measurements the measurable quarterbacks took place on Sunday on the smaller side. Love listen here's what he said after it was suggested his aunt size was small considering retirement after. I was informed that we slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts while he's got good company because here's what Super Bowl fifty four. Mvp Patrick Mahomes had to say who had just slightly larger hands than did borough my small Andrew doing great so far all right he should say believe in yet. Here's borough earlier today addressing his hands. Yeah I mean these measurements you can. You can take so much from them if it's a glaring issue on film with turnovers. Yeah it's probably an issue but I didn't have a lot of fumbles or anything like that so I just tried to make a little joke out of it I think it's a non factor I don't get paid to talk about. Measurements and analyze. The measurements like played to play football. So that's what I'm GONNA do. I look we're not gonNA make too much of this question. Well yet about what? They actually do what they're actually measuring here so worry not. We've got a ruler. We've got Louis at. I mean really what you're really trying to do is just trying to measure the expense of someone and they put it down on the ground and you actually hear about guys actually doing hand exercises to stretch their hand as wide as possible although when you're grabbing a football you're actually going to measure from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the Pinky here and this is hard because this is a hard rule and you can't really get good accurate measuring you look tired type by just under nine right. Look I'll give you a non center's Oh that's attention and would have actually done something with my. I mean what's interesting when you watch the tape of Joe Borough? There are situations where people come from behind strip him when he's trying to move up in the pocket and run. I mean that's going to happen if you have nine if you have ten inches so I mean it's not a glaring obvious problem as far as him on the football field and that's why I think it's really. It's just going to be something that will hopefully wind up forgetting about certain the biggest thing is and you know this with all of these drills you know as well. Mike you go back to the tape and you're trying to find something after the fact that says okay. Now I'm going to look specifically at these things so you're gonNA look cold weather rain and then ball security and Joe Boroughs as good as any college quarterback you're ever going to see in the pocket in terms of two hands on the ball and protecting the ball. I saw him in two thousand eighteen the last weekend. In September against Ole Miss. You can go back and watch the tape. My suit was soaking wet when I did the open of that game. It was pouring rain driving rain in anyone who says it doesn't rain in Baton Rouge on a Saturday night is lying to you. Because it poured and he completed seventy two percent of his throws with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in that game. So you go back to the tape and you try to look at these things and what the tape tells you is. He's just fine. You know I had a theory here. I have an interesting experience with hand size so I was forced out in two thousand eight. We were we trade for Brett Farve and just as a fan of sport. I can't wait to go out to the first practice and watch Brett farve throw. There's nothing physically imposing about breath and he goes out there and he's throwing Abe I've ever seen and I ask them like what is the value. Where's this philosophy comes from it? He said you know what Mike I have long fingers and I actually couple of football the way a lot of people throw a softball. I could actually be over the top and that's where I get all my philosophy from just watching my practice. It was unbelievable to watch though. I know as Lewis show. There's a tradition of how we measure hands but finger. Length is actually an underrated aspect of playing quarterback so far so far small hands but long fingers and you know what my pinky and all the time strong throwing football pictures of the five. It's easily the least important finger in the hand and I can't remember it ever being a big factor. It's all there in the grip. The pinky to me doesn't matter. It's archaic. How we're measuring the quarterback's hand span now with that. Said there's thirty four quarterbacks in the last fourteen years who have been drafted that have had hands of nine inches and smaller and really only two of them had any sort of Sustained Success Ryan. Tannehill is one of them and Jared. Goff is the other. That's it so there are thirty two out of thirty four. Who have failed. But are we going to say that he's going to the Joe Boroughs? Not GonNa have success because his hands tells me that the reason for their failure wasn't because they were nine inches weight.
What is Postpartum Depression? Recognizing the Signs and Getting Help
"There was this myth. That women couldn't possibly be depressed during pregnancy. There's such a happy time. That's Dr Jennifer Pain. She's a psychiatrist and directs. The women's Mood Disorder Center at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and the reality. -ality is a lot of women struggle with depression and anxiety during pregnancy as well as during the postpartum time period about one in seven women experienced this and and yet we don't talk about it much for thirty six year old Meghan rettig. It kicked shortly after. She gave birth to a son lost me. I would force myself to see people people and smile and say you know everything's great and then the second I had a chance where I wasn't holding him I could go to my room and cry and I probably couldn't count how many hours a day I cried. Sorry harder to this is harder to do than then you I think it is this is. NPR Life Kit. We're talking about anxiety and depression during pregnancy and postpartum I cover mental health for NPR and over the past year. I've been doing a lot of reporting on this topic in this episode will tell you how to identify symptoms fine in treatment and give you useful tips on how to manage your mood and wellbeing during this time and this isn't just pregnant women new moms it's for spouses. Parents parents siblings close friends as well. Because chances are you will be the first person to realize that your spouse or daughter or friend is struggling in. You can help refined treatment. We heard from over three hundred women who wrote who to us about their experience with anxiety. Depression during pregnancy and postpartum. Many of them said it took them a while to realize there were depressed and most of them felt ashamed and blamed themselves for it. He is making riddick. I felt guilty about how I felt so I absolutely tried to hide it from everybody and I would put on the best appearance I could. That's why most women don't see count says Dr Jennifer Pain. It is hard to become a new mother but then if a woman's depressed on top of that she's going to have negative feelings about herself as part of the depression and it becomes an even bigger thing but she stresses that depression isn't the mother's fault or failing it's a complication of pregnancy and childbirth house. pardom depression is actually the most common complication of childbirth. I that's our first takeaway. Depression and anxiety can be complications of pregnancy and childbirth just like just diabetes and hypertension. Their mental illnesses just like anxiety and depression at any other point of time as for what causes it. Jennifer pain says researches stone fully. I understand it but most mental illnesses she says are caused by a combination of biological factors and life circumstances in this case she says hormones hormones likely play a big role so we think in the postpartum time period that what happens is estrogen and progesterone levels which have been increasing throughout pregnancy precipitously drop And so there's basically a massive hormonal withdrawal from the brain and if someone had had anxiety or depression before they became pregnant their degree to risk. Now what makes women more vulnerable at the stage. Is that major life transitions. Sion's are big triggers for mental illnesses like pregnancy. And having a child it's a wonderful life change for many people but that doesn't mean it's not stressful You have to think about finances you have to think about caring for an infant. All of these factors come together to create a perfect perfect storm. And the reason it's really important to address this as pain is that if left untreated. It has long-term consequences on the baby's health and development so fabius whose moms were severely depressed postpartum time period have lower. IQ's slower language development. It's and more behavioral problems. Probably because they're not getting that normal interaction That mom's generally give their infants in the postpartum time period. Red And there are health risks for the mom to some women and the feeling suicidal in some even die by suicide in the first year postpartum others like Meghan rettig. Nick who wrote to US set these seriously thought about leaving their baby and spouse. I thought that I wasn't good enough for them. And that if I were just to leave leave that my husband could find a better wife and my son could find a better mother that he'd be able to find somebody to replace me. Who would be more adequate pain? Says it is important important to get the mother into treatment as soon as possible. Because I we save mom's not happy. No one's happy now. We're telling you this not not to scare you. The good news here is that this is treatable and with the right treatment women recover and do well but in order to get treatment. You I need to know if you're depressed that's our takeaway number to know what symptoms to look for and we're going to break them down for you. What I tend and to look for are women? Who are you know? Barely getting themselves together and taking care of the baby doctor. Paint says is if you're struggling to do daily activities every day for two weeks or more that's an indication you need help. Many women who wrote to us about their experience appearance with postpartum depression set the felt detached from their baby. Including Riddick I was afraid that I would never love him I. I thought that this is the bond between mother and child is the love that is so You know infallible. And I was afraid raid that I would never feel that because I didn't feel it in the beginning and there's a whole range of symptoms. Here's Dr Paint again. Many women when they're depressed have have low mood. Can't get out of bed. Have trouble concentrating trouble eating properly don't sleep well etc.. Anger can also be a symptom. Many women will get angry. That the baby's waking them up again or will not settle down and that can be really overwhelming feeling and then of course. It's a vicious vicious cycle because then the woman feels guilty. Thinks she's a bad mother and it just goes and goes in circles. She says many women also become really anxious anxious anxiety. Disorders are very common and pregnancy as well and those can look like generalized anxiety or having panic attacks or the anxieties eighties disguised as parenting worries. Only for some women worries play on repeat in their head like they did for Angelina Spicer. One of the MOMS who wrote to US Spicer Spicer is a comedian. And she's on a mission to normalize postpartum depression after what she went through the thoughts for me were like is she gonNa stop breathing. Everything is the dog gonNA come in and eat us up you know. It was just really random but vivid and recurring. You and the intrusive thoughts would haunt me at night mostly during like the three am feed or the five am feed. When I was alone alone in a dark room with just my daughter and I now if your spouse or a friend of family member and you're not with the pregnant woman or new mom for extended periods of time you may not see all these symptoms? So how do you tell if moments depressed. When people are depressed? They look very different. There is different. They look at and detached if they smile. It doesn't go up to there is Many people will become slower in their thinking and they're speaking process. So if you or someone you love has any of these symptoms. It's important to find signed help that's our takeaway number three ask for help. Pizza's the best place to start is with the doctor. Women see two main doctors. In the postpartum time period. One is their OBI and the others. The pediatrician and pediatricians are actually starting to screen as well because they recognize nuys. That mom being healthy is an important part of the child being healthy. You mean screen the mother for depression. Yes but many people are not used to talking to a doctor about their mental health. So how do you start that conversation. I think talking straight great is probably the number one tip. I have you know I'm feeling depressed. I can't sleep when the baby is sleeping. I'm not getting enough to eat and I've lost more weight than I expected. But just being very concrete and In clear what the doctor that there is a problem. You doctor can prescribe you. An antidepressant which has is being shown to be safe and effective during pregnancy. And when you breastfeeding and research shows the talk therapy is also very helpful. Your doctor can refer you to to a therapist or counselor remember. Treatment will look different for

"riddick" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"What's going on big time? How are you? What's up chippendales? What's going on? Ah Stephen I'm all right. Listen man when you were watching. Lamar Jackson performed last night. Let's get right to this point. Watch it Lamar Jackson. Simple form the way that he performed last night. Did you learn anything new. Is it more of the same or is this just an elevated of realization. That should kick it with all of us to really really highlight what we're seeing especially this. Yeah I think what you're seeing is a young man. That's very motivated to Prune. Many many people wrong as far as what they thought he could ultimately do as a passer in addition to being a great athletes. That's what you're seeing and now obviously. He has a lot of support within a great championship organization nation as far as an owner who believed in them coach. You believed in all general manager who believed in them and a group of players that have been put put together around him to supplement. What is a tremendously gifted kid? And he's now he now has coordinators haters and opposing team's going. They don't want let's let's just say they are now evaluating exactly how they want to coach their players in order to stop it in. This players are asked to defend him in a way that they haven't been asked but then since maybe they were back in college and in high school cool which means all eleven players on defense at the tackle now all of them have to be very very very assignment conscious as far as making sure got bits and run responsibilities. They're taking care of every every play and then once you get that down the Margot's Oh guess what now I'm going to run play action pass and I'm GonNa throw it to you to my wide receiver here. Hollywood browser one's four the three and now he's going to be behind you now he's GonNa make you look silly so really. It's making defenses. have to go back to the drawing board as far as how the attacks dramatically approach him from a mentality standpoint because it's not just the more Lamar's having an effect on the rest of the both more Ravens football team to they All are playing physical. They're all playing with an attitude and they beat people up man to what learned is not only as good football player in his own right right and the guy who built his his game. He's also a hell of a leader and someone who who inspires his peers. I mean just look at how the football team react to them. Stephen allthough coaches react to him so he he's having an effect because far above and beyond. I think what anybody thought was Stephen. ESPN RADIO ESPN news. I'm GonNa Tell You I'm GonNa Ma Throw something your way because it's something that I've noticed and I don't know if you've ever been asked this question because no you can't be Lamar Jackson and I don't think anybody should expect you to be Lamar Jackson. But I will say this one of the things. That are fine very very strange. Louis Riddick is that I'm looking at a guy like Mitchell trubisky. He's got wheels on him mad name. He just said a couple of weeks ago. Well I'M GONNA pull arrange off. Let them run a little bit more Josh Allen for balls for Buffalo you know. The rains have been let unleash just a little bit. He ran the ball effectively against the Dallas cowboys. No you don't have to be. You can't be Lamar Jackson. We understand that but if you are quarterback that you who can run you're not to drew brees of the world and we saw Tom Brady take a seventeen yard scramble last last week for crying out loud but you're not a scrambler whatever but you can really really run with the football. Why do coaches appear to be so hesitant to let these these guys do what they can do when it comes to running the football from the quarterback position? Well I think it's two things one as good as athlete as good of an athlete as Mitch. trubisky is GonNa Athlete as as Josh Allen Is. They're not in the same category as Lamar Number One. I know that I mean yeah I know I know you know what I'm saying. See like memorial. It's almost like it's it's so damn good that you almost feel like I heard somebody come Jackson. I believe it was told home. And this is like it's almost like gale Sayers who can throw and I'm like well. That's that's I mean. Nobody's saying that about Mr Bisky is in okay. So memorials one of a kind. I also think that. NFL COACHES NFL. General managers owners truly do believe. Leave that quarterbacks just are not designed and that position is not intended for to have someone take the number of hits and put himself. I'll bet risk the same way. Lamar is hit and put at risk so to speak for an injury from an injury standpoint. But I'll say this owners are so right now hell bent on and rightfully so getting immediate returns on their investments. They WanNa win right now. They WANNA win today. They WanNa win this year. They don't care about the long term so I think people are going to start asking themselves this question when it comes to take an athletic quarterback and run. The ball made me nor more than at any other time timing football and the NFL football history. Are you willing to. Would you rather have a quarterback who plays five to eight years. And maybe wins you one or the two super bowls or quarterback who plays fifteen plus years like Philip rivers and doesn't win any super bowl. Which one would you rather have? Yeah that's true. You went to one that's going to. That's right so I think what's happening is you're gonNA maybe see especially when you have a guy who has. Maybe Mr Bisky type talent or a little bit better as far as running the football Josh Allen Type Towel maybe a little bit better in definitely guys who are run past. Lamar people are gonNA say. I'M GONNA change the way I think and say. Hey Look I don't WanNa get hurt hurt. I'm not trying to be reckless with them. But they look at what he does when he has the ball in his hand like this. And if I can get a con- you know one contract to who contracts out of him and maybe one or two super bowls. I'll much rather have that than to say. Well I protected him and he played fifteen years. We win it so I think that's what that's what I think eventually going to happen. Do you believe John Hough did this because he saw this or do you believe he did. This is because of what he never saw. Joe FLACCO since Joe flacco in the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl. I think he's doing this because he sees he. He really is trying to utilize in about as organic and Truth Wilbur. Way What are this young man's best talents which is not not just being able to throw the football at a high level and then an increasingly higher level but a guy who literally is the. Tom's accident said literally is like gale. Sayers with the ability to throw the football like eight starting caliber. Winning Zuma going quality quarterback and I think he's. He's doing what he sees in front of him and he's not really worried about ten fifteen years at this. He's not worried about that right now. Oh He's just not and that's not the again that's not to say. He doesn't care about Lamar's long-term future and doesn't want him to play as long as he can. I think he's just utilizing what is a very very a unique weapon. No I will say this to Baltimore deserves. All the credit in the world is he's loosened deserves all the credit in the world drafted. 'cause they're the ones who moved into the back of the first trying to drive them not anybody else they did but remember in the same draft also took Hayvenhurst before they drafted Lamar Jackson. Okay they took a tight tight in. WHO's now not even a primary receiving tight end before they took what is now a guy who's revolutionizing the quarterback position so it wasn't like they were for sure it can it happened but give them credit because they saw or they were willing to do something that not many other teams? Were willing to do Louis Riddick right here with Steven. ESPN RADIO ESPN canoes. Let's get to some of the big games scheduled to take place this week in Dallas cowboys hosting the Los Angeles. Rams what are you looking for in this particular game specifically from the cowboys just want to professionalism you know just as Clay Matthews told me back in the ninety ninety when I was in Cleveland. Are they willing to be. Pros are willing to just take it upon themselves to do the things they've been coaching do football players since they were playing in pop. Water Block tackle. Do Your job do your job for sixty minutes do whatever it takes to play concentrating football when football game because if they'll just do that Dallas can win the division going away and they can win a game in the playoffs. Are they willing to put themselves in that mindset. Well Jason Garrett is who he is coming more is who years Christian chart is who Louis is. All these coaches are who they are. This is about the players at this point. They can get it to them right of themselves playing good you know why because he said you're listening to me. I can't do anything for you anymore. It's about you so here. Let me show you playing good. Maybe you guys go. Oh Yeah I am an all pro I hi Emma I am a pro bowl. I am one of the top ten players as my position. Oh yeah that's right I I'm pretty damn good. It's a shame that he has to do that. But that's what I'm hoping I I see from them. Are you holding you hoping that are you open at. UC Ezekiel Elliott. Get the football more. How about that sure I am I am I am hoping I but but you know truthfully I don't expect it? I expect the rams the Stop Them I really do because I don't think this is the mentally tough football team. Oh no actually. I don't think they aren't America. Football team otherwise. Their own quarterback wouldn't come out and say yeah. y'All know streaky team. When you say I know we're streak and that means he's saying I know we? We don't always play our best. I don't know why but we don't always sit there. They're they're admitting it themselves. So it is what it is right here with Steven. ESPN RADIO ESPN news. What about the rams and based on what you've seen from them I'm wondering what.

"Nick was on with us right now what's up man how you doing you chippendales Rosen Noggin and the back is not the most attractive thing Louis Riddick I'm sorry I'm not I'm not I still manage to find a way to win the game led by Jimmy Garoppolo your thongs and put it perfectly he thought that was one of the best games if not the best game Jimmy is played that's been there construction everything's on time and it's rhythm he was accurate with the football quizzes dissipation throws when it wasn't perfect he did that too and he was again this hype when he came through form you know at his at his best any run the football playing great defense controls the clock and have great field position that means that number ten it's a great time to start getting into that kind of grew as you head into the month of November arrested I asked You a simple question Louis riddick nine touchdowns seven interceptions on the season Oh there we'd be scrutinizing and and that's what that's what I'm saying which make the first half of the season we know that's come from that's come from Kevin Coleman but he's hitting his stride at the right time you know someone who hasn't played a whole lot of football he's still so young in his career so I think I think that this guy is someone who is without a doubt still sending in his career AFC conference because the New York jets made news this week you saw outfielder calls about Aaron Donald Fielding Calls About Tom There's a person I don't think you'll have anybody putting him in that category at this particular juncture I think there's it seems like there's a lack of and I think clearly there's a lack of trust and confidence between the superstar unless there's back it up to even before Adam Gates was hired they arzu coach he dress all the new players for that new coach after all the draft is done they fired Adam Gates is someone who right now it's looking at how they're handling Colegio assembly how can we have you talked to your player no no no I haven't well why not 'cause he hasn't come the top of their organization and I'm not absolving Jamal as far as some of the things that then guys like Jalen Ramsey who found themselves in a situation they exactly the situation that Jamal Adams finds himself in he finds himself in an organization right now what's who would like to have a fresh start somewhere I can't blame him I wanted to say I'd he was lying when he sat up there said I told about they want to go nowhere I wanNA be who the Hell WanNa be who cares about how he's perceived both externally and internally recruiting class and you're you're being considered one of the people who are going to change the the program Ain't look when I'm fed up with the direction of the franchise I'm GonNa try and get out of here and get someplace that's GonNa utilize his right to want to do that and say he wanted to do that but then when it doesn't work now you any back in the bottle so to speak and can't really what's really at this time the best advice not just get this job how the hell is he in a position to fit and see people will accuse me of being hater saying well you know what you're saying because you're not a jam give it I don't know what he's done I just know this just like in life house some people who really do respect his coaching axiom it's behind you and sponsors you ownership in the NFL and in professional sports overall it's really understand INS and outs of the game many owners in the NFL hasn't been in they tell him and it's like you you sit there as someone another one and people say stop being a hater not being a hater this is the fact personally attacking Adam gays but I I don't have an answer for that are going to take place this weekend within the jets division the the what would she what should we be looking for in this game and obviously you got a lot of people that the from what you do best and to and make you do what you don't like to do designed running back runs play action pass they can do it all so then you're in blake that's what I that's where the game will be won or loss for New England on the defensive side of the hey at their best they are turnover producing machines they have great pass rush but that's what it's GonNa come down to can they get them third he has lost a step we as forty two years of age obviously or do you look at up do you view it as you know what Tom Brady is the disposal I think it's more the latter now I would just say they'll like this we're all know that but you won't you can't to the naked eye tell Tom has done more in the face of continuous change at a championships in two plays away from having eight championships cygnus you can't touch it and it's kind of foolish to sit and pick out him and go anybody in the history of the sport in continued to win and set the standard feeding directly off of what you just broke down could a legitimate in years that dare we say he may have been exposed to some unfair treatment for lack of a better way of phrasing it bill has it has forced operate at in order to win at the level he's wanted you can't even imagine makers are other than bill it the amount of pressure and responsibility audibles how the how things work the Patriot way meaning outside of the coaches so roster stability and you had much more roster longevity in terms of keeping guys together you guys together man Tom they've won the Pacers may have won ten eleven I mean he's he really is and I know people are going to be like man aren't you tired Brady Fatigue Louis Riddick right here with Steven A. ON ESPN RADIO ESPN news before I move onto some quick subjects is my buddy should be an executive GM executive vp do you move him or do you keep him and tell Tom is the way to go which way do you go with that Luella and you know what who wants to be in a position bills in or any GM there's a there's a deck blower Malloy did it did it might variable you know he did it the guys over and over Richard Accept Different not only with you but between ownership and the fan base and wanted to do that I'm sure involved more than just him there's a lot with Tom it just is whether we like it or not and I can't say whether or not I could you know nobody could have done it could have got him out of there who's the number one threat real quick I would've said I would've said I would've said the colts the top to bottom obviously the cheese you know how about the cheese and coach read and Komo say the coal NFC so many people popular saying who's the number WHO's the number one team in the NFC built to beat offense align they can play volleyball big boy ball.

"Let's get right to it. Let's go to Jason you live with Steven Steven. Thanks for having me on go ahead. I WANNA say first off. I think you should apologise to your boy. Mike Greenberg or Mike Greenberg and your boy Louis Riddick you know not not not many people can pull off the casual Adolf Friday. Look like you cancer pulling it off in it was at the shirts extra unbuttoned stuff like they were trying to audition for chip in days. Ah brought it up. We'll go ahead all right so two points real quick. I just wanted to say honestly I believe Russell Wilson's should be up there with names like Aaron Rodgers and and Patrick Mahomes is one of the best growers in football right now what he did last night was unbelievable unlike anything that's sort of lock it in the corner and that first quarter was was something beautiful second point. I think more importantly I know I heard you guys. I'm I take about debating about how if La La with lucky or not I think one of the bigger points is there the number one their their lack of run game that they've not only show last night for the past few games todd Gurley has yet to have a hunter yard game. The only ran for fifty five yards. I'll be the two touchdowns last night so do you think that if that continues not only their lack of run on game but their inability to stop the run the play calling of John Shatner Day sorry and now I listen I listen. I think their problem is you know obviously the offensive line is it considered having a great reputation. They're going to have to run block and let Todd Gurley loose and and I think long as they do that the rams defense despite the fifty five points they gave up to Tampa is the kind of defense that bends a lot and won't necessarily break all the time some afternoon some Sundays they will show up they will show up and they will get the job done but your offense has to be more consistent. Tog early is a stud without him then entirely different different team appreciate the call. Oh thank you John you lava Steve and they were subject. Hey Steven I I wanNA commend you on a call that you had last week with a guy that call all up complaining about Dak Prescott in the contract and and you not letting him off the hook and asking him the question. Why did he not call up when the other quarterbacks happen to have been white and you didn't say that which was brilliant on your part but and wouldn't let him off the hook it was obvious why he didn't recall those quarterbacks right but but here's my here's my point and we talked about this briefly couple of weeks ago the problem with the NCAA and this whole California thing extending into other other states and the final minute and stable swooping going to make it a national rule for the NCAA the problem? Is You know this affects other college athletes not only in the other sports other than the big too but also the kids that goes to let's say Fordham on a Division One basketball scholarship. Those schools are not gonna be able to afford to be division one anymore. There's only going to be a handful of division. One schools and everybody else will be something while you sit at the. Why do you say that the because they won't be able to afford that the Davidson won't get the Steph curry they that's a bad example but but but but the whole whole point is one could argue? That's the case now and that's been the case for many years but it's not how many pros come out of Saint Joe's not too many. That's what I'm that's my point but they do them back to Galloway you. Could you could give me Jim in Nelson's Allante West. You could give me a handful of guys. The bottom line is for the most part the reality is because individual talent scouts on the NBA level beyond they're gonNA find those guys no matter where they're playing but in terms of powerhouse teams joining big conferences big money programs etc.. That's that's already been happening for years. That's a fact you have to understand how schools make money they make an athletic program if they advance if they win the a ten they win the patiently right and they win a game around the NCAA they make money from that so in other words I cover sports for twenty. Five years usually got to know that well. I'm to the point that I'm trying to make to us that this always been an imbalance what we're talking about. Now is individual marquee walking names having the opportunity to profit off of their likeness. If you're Chris Webber and you have your name on the back of a Jersey being sold on MMA campus Michigan during the Fab five era and how come so violation of school gives you a Jersey but other people can walk in there and get jerseys anytime they want to understand that it's while it's wrong you're right. It's raw so what I'm saying. So what I'm talking about when I'm talking about is as long as the school doesn't doesn't have to come out of pocket to pay players then you're talking about Marquis guys being able to profit off their own lightness. Not a reality is to elevate your profile. You might go to those big time programs for the television exposure and things of that nature but you were doing it anyway so the only thing that's changed here is that because the individual player could potentially find a way to market himself and a profit of his own lightness. That's less money than advertisers and sponsors might feel the need to throw into the coffers of universities because instead they now allowed to give it to the individual and even then we only talk about a handful of individuals so what's the problem I I well. I agree I just I I worry about the other side of this where the Lower Division One conferences will not let me let me let me say this to you and fairness. I I can respect your concern. Here's my problem. My problem is this and I'm not trying to sit up there and say that you're just oblivious or you don't care about the welfare and wellbeing of those student athletes that have been exploited. How can we never have those concerns for the institutions? How come nobody had these concerns when the institutions were out there exploiting these guys and getting all the stuff that they got off the backs of these individuals that generated this money? How is it that the two revenue generating sports? It's is basketball and football primarily African American participants by the way and everybody suddenly concerned because a few of them would have the opportunity your profit off of their own name and lightness but universities institutions and excetera that clearly are run by White Folks Kasit up there and get all the money that if they can and all the all the advantages perks that they could get off the backs of these guys that nobody has any concerns. Why is that I I completely agree with you and I'm? I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm just saying I have a concern about the other side which also is can can be African American's wealth. I taught to that would be if you've been taking advantage of somebody for years. Why should anybody be concerned about what may may harm you? You've been unharmed. Everybody else I if somebody's a bully and they've been beaten up people you know for years and then Oh my goodness they were about to get into fight with somebody. That's GONNA kick their ass. Are you concerned about that bully. There's been beaten up people falling all the time I get it. I get it I just I like healthcare. There's no there's no answer. We have to take it. Piece says no perfect answer but there is an answer and sometimes the victims goes to spoil. Sometimes Tom Things have to happen too somewhat even the scales his I'll take it on a serious level for you just a second job before we get on Outta here. It's just like affirmative of action on its face of course no one should even come close to having an unfair advantage of course somebody should be given a hand. We should always have of equality and everybody should have the freedom to compete on an equal even playing sale. Nobody would disagree with that. The problem is from an historical stoorikhel perspective other folks other than black folks have had an upper hand systemically and beyond spanning decades if not centuries and so in an effort to try to make up for the lead that obviously you gave yourself for so many years something the thing was was implemented from a policy perspective to address that concern and there are people that will come along thereafter saying it ain't right right it ain't right but the stomach emily looking at this country any advantages there people have for how long they have had it. How did that happen? There was nothing about that that was fair but ultimately he demanded that something transpire to flip the scales to some degree so you could address the issue of inequality that is one one hundred percent true. I've I've got to think about what you've said and I agree with you. I I again. It's just a concern that we need to respect it and appreciate it and you're not you're not wrong. I want to be very very clear. You're not wrong to sit up there and say there's a legitimate concern coming from the other side. The problem is is is legitimate is that concern is they have been the one exercising unfairness and inequality to their advantage and now that something is not today advantage day in the ought roll. We'll let me get my car. Let me get my tissue instead of tier for them. Who gives a damn what they feel after all on their practices they've engaged in all of these US ears appreciate the call eight say espn?

I listened to Colin cowherd. They talking all kinds the trash out the bad man and I wanted to know if now that he has a decent defense which you haven't asked for a long time and even even though it is coach every Roger Does Not make a strong playoff push to super bowl appearance this year or next year does that tarnish his greatness or anything like that could potentially happen if they if their defense holds up to snuff no question about it. I think the thing that you gotTa Monitor and keep your I on is him adjusted a rookie head coach and and the person now that they have available right now Devante Adam seems to be their only weapon scant Ling Toronto Ronald Allison and all of these guys. What are they going to bring to the table? That's a huge question mark but there is no question it of Green Bay's defense hold up to snuff over the next two years and you you don't get anything from Amer Raja's that could certainly tarnish him. No doubt about it appreciate the call Zakia Lava Stephen. They real quick go thanksgiving afternoon. Thank you ran man. I'm tired of the NFL making all these horrible rules that nobody understands like asthma I think last night I watched my rams get robbed of a first down when you know. Aj He goes up there and rarely puts his shoulder on Russell Wilson but in in the first half debut in comedy jumps on my boy Jared Boston neck and no call was made. You don't even you don't even need to make it more complicated located what it is that was not a rough in the pass a penalty on clay matthews that is bogus. It should never been called. It was an egregious miss it. It was agreed on a call against Clay Matthews by the referees there it was horrible. There's no reason with the show a below the neck there's no reason why he should have been called that foul absolutely not and I agree hundred percent hundred percent. My question is when does the NFL going to say hey look we all these replay officials the New York one guy radios down and goes. Hey pick up the flag. You made a mistake third down four hundred. I can't answer that question. I appreciate the call. Thank thank you so much Mike. You got thirty seconds go. Oh Yeah I think I have a solution to the problem is sports. You take the bottom five teams or wherever you want to set the fifth worst record actually get the first pick the fourth the second pick someone so forth it actually forces front manage front office management to put a semi decent product on the field and the players have to compete to actually win more games in the guy ahead of them got to think about that. I'm not sure about that idea but I'll give it some thought maybe when we we have more time to get into it we can discuss it but the bottom line. Is this why you think about the teams that tank that means they stink while waste time thinking about them. We got so many quality the teams to look forward to that's the way I look at it. I appreciate the call. Thank you so much. I'm looking forward to this. Louis Sunday's games can't wait to see Green Bay against Dallas of course keep my is on that interested in Minnesota and the giants as well and I'm GonNa Watch Carson Wentz.

"Getting quote is easier than ever before afford any minute now we should be having NFL inside an analyst Louis Riddick contributes to I take contributes abuse to get up see him on NFL live definitely see him on Monday night football and account down all of that good stuff so if anybody knows what's going on he does if anybody can provide us an accurate perspective about what's going on he can so. I'm looking forward to talking to him any moment now. Whenever we get him on a line he will be here it eight say espn? It's intimate two three seven seven six a couple of things zero. I may have missed field goal last night blowing the game for the Los Ause Angeles Rams but Aram certainly didn't help themselves either a delay of game penalty right before that can ignore that Everett Britt letting the ball go right through his hand so Thomson could intercept it for the seahawks on the ensuing drown on dry before that that definitely definitely played a role allowing carson run four hundred and eighteen yards or twenty seven carries that didn't help matters. We all know that and Russell Wilson looked like like a star. I mean there's no other way to put it Russell. Wilson Right now is number two to he's number two to patch mahomes fully pianist. We can slice in any way we want to but if you're paying attention as hard to ignore what Russell Wilson is bringing to the table. The Dude is completing. Nearly seventy percent of his passes will actually seventy percent of his passes. He's doing twelve thousand a single interception on the season in the first five games. He's passed over fourteen nine hundred yards. He's got a quarterback rating. I forgot what it was it was it was third tier one twenty six Qbr of eighty he's he's been doing it on the line. Promises Louis Riddick right now was going on big time how you got Russell Wilson is number two in league MVP EPA if I had if I had to vote today second Patrick Mahomes and dammit. I don't even know if that's right your thoughts about what you saw. Last night from him is Seattle's victory over the Los Angeles. It was ramps yeah. I think you're right on track with it simply because the way I'd like to look at 'em be pieces this if you took that particular player off of their football team what kind of tangible effect would it have on their fortunes. Look you take Patrick mahomes off Kansas City. They have a lot of great weapons but I mean they they they become. I don't know maybe eight one team nine one team. You Take Russell Wilson off of Seattle's football team. I don't even know if they're five hundred and the things that he's doing for them. The schedule stuff the stuff that doesn't come within the normal structure of a play call is this it's incredible. It really is is I think sometimes the play calls might be Russell. Drop back and do something Russell's dropback. Just create something. We're going to run down here and it's probably not gonna be the way it's it's supposed to be but you just got to make some stuff happen and he he's he's incredible the way he avoid hits in the pocket he never really takes a big shot down the field when he is running any these scrambling beyond the line of scrimmage and he never changes. He's always the same guy always eternally optimistic always has the right outlook on things always never never talked bad about his teammates never talked bad about it he just he embodies almost everything that you think about when you think of MVP so if that's the the case and look at what you said here not only is that the case but you talked about the likelihood of what Seattle would be without him. What does that say about the team that they have? I mean we look at the Rams Johny defensive side of the ball. There's an donal does keep to leave this. Marcus Peters this brokers and others on the offensive side of the ball. You got girly. You've got golf you've got would did you got cop etc.. Where's what's Seattle is seems to be Russell Wilson or bust yeah? It's it's one of those things. Where were you sit over the past couple of years you start to wonder you know you think man I mean why hasn't Seattle been able to really put together a a more formidable roster roster on on its surface as far as weaponry for for Russell Okay and that's not to take anything away from decay metcalf does not to take anything away from Tyler Lockett? It's not not to take anything away from Doug Baldwin when he was there because Doug Bollinger was one of the best receivers games ever seen so these are. These are good football players but they're not you know they're not They're not brandin cooks. They're not Cooper Cup. They're not Robert was they're not tied growing. They're just not so what Russell is doing in that. That context is just extraordinary especially in an offense an offense that really is philosophically predicated on the run. I believe right now. Seattle is six overall in rush percentage. Meeting percentage plays play calls that are run place. Okay I think the right around forty five forty six percent which is where Pete wants it. That's where they were in their heyday. When when marshawn was you know in true beasts mode and the and the Legion of boom was really going on so Russell? It's not like they're it's not like they really emphasized. Is it downfield complex passing attack so what he the numbers he puts up and the efficiency with which he plays the game outside of normal structure makes what he's doing all the more incredible right now did stem and it's. La and that's the way it's been for the last several years now. San Francisco appears on the come up we're porn star Jimmy himself Jimmy Garoppolo my my my thoughts from You r rather I'm interested in your thoughts on San Francisco and how legit of a team are they. They are one of the undefeated teams in the game right now sure when they traded Jennifer Jimmy Garoppolo I thought given the price they pay to get what I was perceiving the B. Premium talent all be someone who you can only gauge it on you know based off very limited resume. I thought San Fran was getting was making one of the great trades that they ever made misery that organization and I know that sound that sounds that sounds dramatic but I really thought Jimmy would be that good baseball for some of the things I had heard from the people in New England about how high of assuming they thought Jimmy ahead so if you if you say that you think that they're that they're in good shape long-term at quarterback they have three very good pass rushers. They need another young corner. Which is why I thought Jalen Ramsey would be someone that they should target? They have a young wide receiver young group of wide receivers fevers led by Deebo Samuel. I think are going to be very good okay they have one of the best young defensive tackles in the League and deforest Buckner they have some of the best last year linebackers in the NFL inside libraries in particular starting with Quantum Alexander so they've got guys all throughout this roster that are sneak. Not I sit here and say sneaky. They just don't get a lot of pub because they're not really you know at the forefront of the discussion. When we're talking about teams that are that we're talking about as you you know potential super bowl winners but they continue to stack win? Stephen and Jimmy can stay healthy and live up to what I thought was tremendous potential based on what I saw in New England and then in the first couple of games that he played there in his first year there San Francisco's go all of a sudden announced themselves onto the scene where people are going to hell. Did they come. I'm from but they've been kind of slowly building it. They've been slowly building it slowly building and they have a big day the big match up this Monday night against the browns. Although the Brown's haven't really proven anything either to go on Monday night and with these two teams that are both on the come up if they can put a woman on Cleveland People Start taking notice and then once they get into their their divisional schedule schedule and they go ahead and bang heads with the Rams and bang heads with Seattle and you know unstop out Arizona people will take them serious and I think that's what's coming those karate was stephen a ESPN radio ESPN news. Let's transition to the NFC or stay with an NFC. We'll go up north are the giants have a game The Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Vikings in the NFC north. We heard we heard the news. We heard what Phelan said essentially about kirk cousins we see Stefan eggs wants out. What do you make about what's going on in Minnesota and how can they remedy everything really stuck? They're stuck because they have tied themselves to kirk cousins. Obviously the powers-that-be who make the decisions up there. I'm sure thought it through thoroughly Leeann discussed it thoroughly as to what it would mean to go ahead and give him a fully guaranteed contract and what the what that would mean as far as not not being able to get rid of him designing offense that would suit his needs surrounding him or his skill level rather surrounding him with players that would fit fit the kind of offense that Kirk Thrive in office coordinator would WANNA run Allen down the line so I would assume they thought that through thought that out very thoroughly and that this is something that's come. That's coming along right. Now is not something that they thought was ever going to happen so they're stuck there. I just flat out stuck so now it's going to be up to Mike Zimmer Gary Kubiak who's up WHO's coaching staff as well to figure out what do we do as far as now being able to open up this offense more to where we are getting the return on investment that we made incur cousins utilizing him to the fullest was to most not just relying on Dalvand Cook not having our to our number one and number two wide receiver who he paid all this money to now be ticked off of the fact that they're not being utilized allies they way they were because eventually what that's going to do. Is this GonNa tear at the fabric of the franchise and the next thing you know they're gonNA start. Underperforming people are GonNA start losing jobs salary caps going and get thrown all out all out of whack because you're GONNA be starting to try and move and or cut players were gonNA count against the cap in terms of dead money. That's how. GM's get fired. That's how teams get thrown in the cat purgatory. That's how you wind up drafting at the top of the draft because you're having to start all over again. So how do you fix it. You get your heads together and try to emphasize the strength that you have on your offense and roster minimize the weaknesses and they better get that done in a hurry otherwise all those things that I just said are gonNA come to fruition and Minnesota going to be in trouble Louis Riddick.

Patriots drop Antonio Brown after accusations of sexual misconduct
"Is Antonio brown has the latest chapter two weeks after signing in the patriots have released the wide receiver brown has been accused of sexually assaulting his former trainer Britney Taylor according to a civil lawsuit filed September tenth Taylor met with the NFL on September sixteenth and there are more interviews being conducted beyond tailored remains unclear when or if brown will interview with the league this was bill bell check before the pats cut ties with brown and may give you an indication of his threshold with all the A. B. drama in terms of what was to come how important is because you're off the field everything is important. bill do you expect to have Antonio available to you on something. he's on a roster number headline today focusing on Antonio brown is there any of this at all affect the status with the team. I think I've already addressed so we're gonna. get ready for the jets here have answering football questions the rest of it I'm not going down with the rest of it. zero point were some awful stuff is not so much yeah. that's yeah I'm good okay thank you well it will. game set match right there right in addition to the lawsuit brown faces another allegation of sexual misconduct by a female orders who was working at is western Pennsylvania home in twenty seventeen that allegation was part of a Sports Illustrated report that detailed domestic incidents involving brown a charity auction theft in multiple unpaid debts on Thursday the lawyer for the artist reach out to the NFL after brown apparently sent a what were described as threatening text messages to her clients according to ESPN's Mike Rees brown's text messages to the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct were viewed by some in the organization who have crossed the line is lawyers called the messages which included a picture of her children intimidating a source telling E. S. P. N. of those are brought those messages were the final straw ESPN NFL nation patch reporter Mike Reiss NFL insider Adam Schefter on why the decision was made and why now so here's the latest here from team headquarters obviously a decision like this doesn't come without high level discussions and when we talk about high level discussions with the patriots you're obviously going right to the top with the owner Robert Kraft and head coach bill Belichick in this decision was described to me as one that they came to together and that they're aligned with then obviously you know bringing Antonio brown to the patriots initially was something that was a decision that wasn't easy to come to for the patriots given their history with players and domestic violence and sexual assault and so this was a sensitive situation from the get go and today it reached a critical mass and it was described to me that the statement the team released was short and sweet for a reason because they're gonna let their actions do the talking and they're not going to get into a deep explanation as to why this decision came today if the New England Patriots knew that was coming do you think that they would have gone ahead and signs Antonio brown. no so we start off the relationship. on a bad foot and then. it was created obviously documented that incident last night with your latest. text and harassment of another one of Antonio grounds accusers and when you have that added to the pot it makes it even more toxic. and again I emphasize that there were people I think are apprehensive about bringing a report from the beginning when they found out about this it made it more difficult and there were as Mike we should look at you high level discussions throughout the course of the day to day about what the show aired in shouldn't do. and ultimately I think it became very clear that it was watching the press conference with bill Belichick today it dawned on me. you have a true no team that is not allowed to touch down all season. they're about to put the jets and go to free you know. they are poised to make more and it'll history an old bill Belichick or discuss the double check her doctor later press conference as you should be by the way. was Antonio brown questions. you could see that he just said okay I'm done. that was not going away anytime soon and by the way it is been that way since the sun Antonio brown yeah the text messages were significant in that they were sent while brown was a member of the patriots Louis Riddick on SportsCenter and if this is the end of four a B. I can't really say because we've seen time and again. always becoming numbered with become drawn to and attracted to be transcended. Paul talent Paul Dougherty and what he can do for your football team is the entrance of the something that we become too loose that's become afraid to become too loose within used to much conflict and Antonio case it's truly is he is a one of a kind type of player it will make all the ground is. that type of town and I don't know if the people in the last of the I don't know people will justify taking another chance on him provided that he take the necessary steps to kind of life you get his life back on track off the field and I don't know what that looks like I don't know what those kinds of you know this kind of action would actually look like in order to appease games and make them feel comfortable taking a chance on I don't know but I wouldn't doubt it I wouldn't doubt that someone is looking for reasons to try and go ahead and say we could still use that player on the football field we can still use what he breaks I wouldn't put it past a TV to do that I mean at this point in time there's been so much history here that says that he really needs to really reset if you really feel like they need to be some kind of like major intervention with him to get him back on the right right Pat but. you know I I can't speak for every team because every time you know you make some kind of absolute statement about the end of this for a career or this player is hit the wall going downhill. any how it always comes back to bite you in there and in this situation when you talk about a player's individual behavior off the field in particular when you don't wear with none of us really know how players really act off the field if you think that you do then you're kidding yourself I don't know will keen on a brown should be in the league regardless of team the New England Patriots have released Antonio brown this was never going to work it was never going to last when the patriots signed Antonio brown I said he would not be a pager by the end of the season I said several times throughout this process the Tigers do not change their stripes and I think that has proved true once again it is the accumulation of Antonio brown's actions in character. they have proven too much for professional football this is not a person who can be trusted this is not a person making wise decisions it is not a person exhibiting. quality character it's not a person should be in professional football not now so again prior to the text messages all the issues surrounding brown were from before he signed with the patriots September night the four time Pro Bowl selection has denied all allegations brown practice with a patch early on Friday putting his thanks to the organization the patriots sent out the following statement we appreciate the hard work of many people over the past eleven days but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at
Brag Better with Meredith Fineman
"I'm very excited about my guest. Today we just met and we became became fast friends and we were sitting across from each other. It was sort of a hi. How are you what do you do and she tells me that she helps coach coach women on how to Brag better that is something that really hit me as a person who has major issues with self promotion and we're here to talk about that. I find it very fascinating. Her work is very interesting. She is a DC based. PR and communications expert she's also in involved with it says your leadership coaching which I found very interesting. I'm like you slay at high school reunions. What a cool job. Her name is Mary Feinman. Welcome to Nash B O N Cheese a podcast guest host. She also has a podcast called. It never gets old exploring vintage denim and vintage clothes verts any so the world of secondhand okay the world of secondhand we love. That's why you're here to clarify honey. Thank you so murder. I'm so happy you're here. You're work is fascinating. Thank you and I will say okay and to anyone listening big fan of you and the pod of but you're not alone and having trouble talking about yourself is what I do for a living so cool. Though what a cool job thank you it. It has been a long fight for the Bragg. I just finished the manuscript for Brag better the book which is out in June We have a little ways to wait zero waste waste wait. I have a lot of editing to do but yeah I mean. I'm thoroughly unsurprised that. This is something that affects you. It affects everyone not just women though at my core heart center that's who I care about impacting with this and so it stems from a lot of different things my becoming the go-to as PR person for representing individuals my own work on I've been a freelance writer for about fifteen years I speak I do. TV and people sorta wanted that piece but then we have this extreme which I don't have to explain to you in show business. This cult of personality situation going on where leadership is a driver of business more than it ever has been like traditionally in American history like yes. We've had big families as like you know the vanderbilts or people like that that have been titans of industry but they're more visible than ever and I didn't think it was fair that the benefits associated with understanding president visibility be reserved one for people for McCain naturally which is like three people like. I've taught myself this for many years. I grew up in the DC. You know media in politics bubble being like toted around two parties. I've sounded like this since I was five which is like super fucked up but also good. It's not cool. I'm uh-huh yeah but yeah and then I started is that nobody knew how to talk about themselves and that it was so agree just for women and I was watching the systemic trajectory so it would have young women that want to work for me and this was when find point was more of a PR shop and they could not talk about their past experience with confidence accordance and then I would have friends where I would have to happen and play publicist and then I would literally like living my life yeah yeah no. I mean it's super duper real well. It's an epidemic and then then I would represent really high powered women and they all felt the same way which was that feels really icky to talk about yourself a used Brag. It is a taboo word. We don't have that many other one right self-promotion yeah but you know what it's a necessary very skill set and it is one that will get you more money a bigger job opportunities hundred percent and like. I think that it's just that I don't have to really explain to anyone out here in. La Because I feel like that's so much of what you have to do so much of what we have to do in it is most certainly been a hindrance to me and I don't know exactly when this happened but it's it's. I'll give you an example like you book a show you as an actor like Oh. I booked in episode of show. It's very easy to post a photo of you. Onset post a photo of your trailer post a photo of the script at the table rate and I would see these photos rose and I would be happy for my friends but it got to the point where I was like people are bragging about their jobs and then it would make me not mad at them or hate them or feel weird. It would just go. I'm not GonNa do that when I book of job because I don't want to make other people feel weird about it so then I never did it yeah and that's really if you really just think about it. It's insecurity. It's all stems from insecurity of like. Oh I don't want to you know come off a certain way or whatever but that's sort of in our business you have to do that. It reminds people that Oh you are a working actor and that people book you totally and from that I always like people don't know what you want until you tell them and people don't know what you've done until you tell them so for example like you were just on an episode of drunk history like I might be a random person who has a random show who thinks you only have the podcast and then sees that it was like Oh shit she also acts yes like you. You have to show up you have to that. Everybody is very lazy and does not read and you know you've to tell them. You're available to speak to tell them. You're able to act whatever it is that you you. WanNa do and what I will say is like so obviously obviously I care about doing this for women because being a woman in public is so complicated yes you're judged on you know metrics and factors that matter not that is obviously you know doubly triply true in Hollywood where so much is based on appearance and like. It's funny 'cause I live in. DC which is for the call Hollywood for ugly people and it's it's super true and it's just like so based on intellect that actually sometimes it's funny sometimes like focusing on your appearance in DC is like a a bad thing which is is funny. It's all all Asbat for women or picked apart. You know yeah well what I will say to you too. Is I mean at this point. I've trained and council like hundreds if not thousands of people and particularly your southern woman where I you know I'm making a generalization Zeeshan but gender norms also I would say in the south being polite very overtly feminine dominate s I would put a lot of money on that having some unharmed riddick per cent and that is my argument is that it's a skill that everyone can learn yes what I do is not rocket science so I call my audience the qualified quiet which are people that have done the work but don't know how to talk about it to me. That is not a weakness. It's a strength and as I said what I do is not rocket science. It's the icing so basically what's much harder is spending the time and doing the work and you know crossing all the ts dotting. All the is like that stuff is takes a lot of time and energy. This is sort of different cringe muscled right Affleck's. Yes and it's so hard for women for so many different reasons. You don't have good examples. you have a lot of people screaming and the rest of us like not knowing where to even begin then we have this horrific inverse relationship between volume and merit we reward loud voices and as much as I'd like to be optimistic and say that I think we can get the louder people to be quiet. I do not believe that I think it's about getting the quiet people to be loud life as a woman so you're judge metrics that men are not you know your police from your voice voice. Your ankles your age. You know an endless laundry list of things you feel responsible for other people's feelings because you're conditioned to feel that way. You're saying you know like I don't want want people to feel some kind of way post things but also look historically positive attributes were associated with passive behaviors or like she was demure. She was coy. She was shy all all of those things mean that you shouldn't know how to do these things and I think that like part of my like background growing up but then also so being a PR person and realizing that if you treat yourself like a PR campaign that will give you some of the skills you need and that's what Brag betters. There's all about like. I care that it's not just another like you know white. Lady feminism like feel better like this book is intersectional that it it is not only four women though it obviously women buy books but also that it is tactics that I have worked on over the past decade like it's going to tell you what to do in a way that feels very authentic to you like that's the key issue is like how are you going to brag in a way that feels okay and specific to you yes I. I feel like again. I'm just I'm such like self deprecating and that's comes more into it every time somebody's like. What do you do. whatever like you know what. I mean and I'm done new new. Jackie is done with self deprecating humor. New Jackie wants to let everyone know what's going on in proudly expressed that so where do we begin well. I I was GONNA say so so with that self deprecation like your comedy. You're very funny lady. thank you. I am you are yeah there. You go is it. I mean well I was. I was this past week. I was in San Francisco at leave is and I did their women's conference and I was talking to I did you to brag better talk and I was speaking to someone in the audience after and she was talking to me about accepting compliments so have of this is learning to Brag and ask for the recognition that you deserve you've but then it's also figuring out what to do with it once you get it and how to accept it and how to leverage it to continue and like so there's a lot of work there yes you know. I always referenced the League Amy Schumer Sketch where the friends are complementing each other and you know they won't accept it and say look disgusting trash bag and then amy just says thank you and all their heads blow off yeah like it's like that it's do yes. I've had a really hard time with that. myself but you know we. That's that's a whole other story where so willing to accept criticism. It's like Oh yeah. Tell me a piece of shit like I will. I will totally take that from you. Take it to the bank. put it on my forehead like. Don T sure sweatshirt but no we are not conditioned to accept praise and in those good things about yourself and here's the issue so when you don't accept it it it makes it stop and then it can't give you other opportunities so one one thing that I always talk to people about is like cut out those terms like shameless plug shameless self promotion to Brag but what you're doing with those qualifier demeaning what you're about to say you're trashing yourself before anyone else can ride which is a defense mechanism but we are also doing a saying like I can't stand behind this accomplishment it and your reader or your listeners like if you were to like post something inside. Lake shameless plug that I'm like well. I don't know what to do with us. As the reader I feel the anxiety that you feel. It's transferring to me and if you don't WanNa hype yourself like I don't know what to do and it stops there so like it has a negative effect effect on the people you're saying to also then

"What does the hillman have to do with running sprints. What does the he'll have to do. We're running routes and catching passes by derek hough but this brother took his old helmet at went home but still expected his paycheck and mike may the raiders nah you want here. Who the hell you think you all to just disappear. Don't show up to work and expect to get paid this. This is what i'm talking about so every time we condone something like that rick and don't catch on a come up to act that way whereas let's get you get you know where this is the reality of the situation. This is what antonio brown. I have not recalled. The only complaint ain't tonio brown had against the oakland raiders was the letter announcing his fine prior to that he didn't have of any issue with the raiders yet. He's been causing him trouble since he arrived so they finally said you owe us money. 'cause you haven't showed up to work and if anybody else ended showed up to work would have had to find them so we can find you and this brother was like nah. It ain't going down like that. Well yes the hell it is. I promise you he lose even more money now. This is the reality so for me. Here's my deal we. We don't want to go as far as saying cut tonio brown. Let's not be stupid. The brothers all world wanna greatest wide receivers in the history of the national. The football league clearly wanted grace in the game today kate he be cancerous to a locker room evidently so we got to address that we can't have up antonio brown acted away that he's been acting but real world talk to greatness greatness comes tolerance those who are great tolerate it a little bit more than those who are not and so we we wanna tolerate antonio brown with the oakland raiders but only to a point to me. The oakland raiders have been handed an absolute blue gift. Here's why before you had to worry about losing him having to pay thirty million dollars and still leaving him to end up on the patriots or somebody else who you know pick them up on a cheap because he's phenomenal dramatic. Tom brady having him to throw the football to me and my god what in this way in this way all you have to do. You got to remember see under that scenario. Antonio antonio brown's still gets his thirty million. He just gets to go elsewhere on the this scenario where you suspend him but you keep him. Oh he's in danger. Having this whole thirty million dollar deal void how about y'all wanna make betty behaves now now if y'all recall oh if you recall antonio brown was heard a few months ago talking talking about he don't need the money is not that important. Y'all see play law. Sometimes you'll see those. There's lots. We tell you i bet you. He ain't saying that today. Lesson learned lesson learn and at eight say e._s._p._n.

"And the one thing the one provision that would eradicate the guarantee is that you act like you have some damn sense and you can't even do that. There's nothing to talk about. I if i am the oakland raiders antonio brown suspended right now now because guess what i'm gonna pay you week to week seventeen if you act up if you act right. I'm a pay you you only. Are you gonna miss one game pay and but i have the freedom to get rid of you. I have the freedom to cut you now. Everybody wanna talk about mike. Mayock doc mike mayock is the general manager for the oakland raiders. Mike mayock is an individual that used to work in television doing doing what i'm doing matter of fact. Mike may have me ask an m._b._a. Why the hell do not have a president of basketball operations job. I mean then we give and television commentators and analysts g._m. Jobs in the n._f._l. Hockey get one in the n._b._a. That's our sticking our thinking but i knock in may opt for taking that deal and i'm certainly not questioning his football accurate. What i'm saying is talk about nepotism at its height. The the only thing i said about that is that don't have it for the brothers. I say it again. It don't happen for the brothers john lynch san francisco even though he played mike mayock media do don't happen for the brothers like that but that's neither here nor there. The bottom line is this. Mike mayock hasn't done a bad a job since he arrived in oakland and i find nothing wrong that he did hear the oakland raiders. Ah antonio brown no problem with them. Antonio wanted to forces way out of pittsburgh he did that. He wanted to do so so he could get his money money he did that. He showed up on a shot with lebron. James maverick caught in the crew brother got paid right or is about to get paid. This is what he was talking about right. What oakland raiders gave you your money guarantee. You show up in oakland. You got jacked up feet like a layover. Yellow stuff under your feet look like code. You have this nasty god. Okay you try some cryotherapy ropy treatment in france and forgot to put on your damn socks that was it. The rate is fault then you turn around and what did you do you then have a problem with the helmet now the n._f._l. Has been sued sue for billions. They fixate themselves on addressing safety issues in the national football league. That's what they did so they come not only did they come up with new hill ladies and gentlemen that obviously tested and are considered to be considerably safer safer rather and they've been certified lied etc which leaves antonio brown's film. It's outdated. They informed the players five years years in advance. This was coming for the last five years. They said changes coming this year. Here's what we're going to to prepare yourself and in training camp with eighty nine players on a roster at least over two thousand players in the national football league. Antonio brown is the lone player the low player their father grievance events about what what two thousand plus people played in the n._f._l. Guy what complained about the helmet antonio brown. He was also the one guy that flew in on air balloon right. He was the one guy that missed practice bansi. Oh by the way people usually hide their feet when it looked like that this brother showed it on his great okay then not not only that you go against football league. You're on the phone with the national football league trying to plead your case to wear hillman. That's been outdated because it's over over ten years old and you tell n._f._l. Go f themselves. I'm telling you what i know. Okay so not only did you do that.

Chargers, Melvin Gordon And Ten Million Dollars discussed on SportsCenter AllNight
"Time Joseon adders are reporting the agent for Chargers running back Melvin Gordon has requested a trade because charges are not backing off their offer of ten million per season which represents a roughly twice the salary schedule to make in the final year of his rookie deal they remain at a record you know not wanting to report because he feels like he's valuation is higher than ten million when you have to put that in the context knowing that Todd Gurley right now is what at fourteen point three lay beyond del thirteen one David Johnson at thirteen million my understanding is that the comp that in being out there right now is that David Johnson and Melvin Gordon are similar in terms of how they should be paid and they are definitely still at a gap between those numbers and so right now he's going to stay out until the situation gets resolved nice of Gordon toll charges that if he does not receive a new deal that's acceptable obviously he'll sit out demanded trade he's followed through on both threats Louis Riddick Damien woody Chris Mortensen with insight on how this plays out in if Gordon has any leverage in this hold out he doesn't have the leverage because the charges obviously feels so his replacements is number two or number three players like Austin Meckler Justin Jackson will give them enough of a of a level of production a percentage of production may not equal what number will give them enough to where they have enough other weapons on the field to make up the difference and they're just going to go with the you know one year at a time type of philosophy and if he doesn't like it then they're gonna trade I think he's out on the football team before the regular season starts and hopefully he can find that one suitor who not only is willing to pay a high price to get him but is also willing to pay him long term which is what he's after after lands a former running back and running back coach and the one thing I know by if the land he's very confident that he can find another running back you mention it already the fact that Philip rivers in the last year for the of Joey Bosa is coming up they have players in the pipeline so to think that Melvin Gordon's going to get you know the levy on bail early heard Todd Gurley absolute because are guaranteed a lot of people looking to toggle the contract and is like wool we don't want any part of that so okay Melvin Gordon is in a situation where he's not gonna get paid by the Los Angeles Chargers and more likely he's going to be sued no with another team actually ten million dollars is the charges off and that's kind of where the value him and they do have other contracts to get done and they're not a cash rich team we've established that for different reasons that without getting into details Melvin Gordon's only played one full season out of a source for any is a good back is he an elite back you can argue one way or the other but the bottom line is the charges are going to get permission for Bilbo is represented to go get a trade they want to control the situation he's not levy on bills he has a contract levy on bill did not have a contract last year so it's not a similar situation ten million dollars is the charges off and that's kind of where the value him and they do have other contracts to get done and they're not a cash rich team we've established that for different reasons that without getting into details but Melvin Gordon's only played one full season of the source for any is a good back is he in the league back you can argue one way or the other but the bottom line is the charges are going to get permission for Bilbo is represented to go get a trade they want to control the situation he's not levy on bills he has a contract levy on bill did not have a contract last year so it's not a similar situation ultimately I think the charges feeling and we talked about this yesterday and make your Damian Moore and and the lens perspective is they do fill like if necessary if gore insanity assigned eventually then you can put them on the market as a team it is the one with the agent do the shopping Eric Williams covers the Chargers for ESPN provided this take on why the charger should find a resolution with Gordon if they have aspirations to make a run in the playoffs he was on Spain and company yeah I mean it's basically a stand off at this point you know Gordon wants to be paid amongst the highest running backs normally he thinks his his statistics over the last couple years point to that he should be pay you know like David Johnson girly let me del the Chargers obviously disagree on that date they are pricey them again according to reports and and I believe they're accurate about ten million per year you mean another structure the contract how much of that is guaranteed how much that is fully guaranteed when he would receive that type of money so those are things that are going on in terms of negotiations to try to get Melvin in the camp I did the things that are promising if both sides want to get a deal done Melvin Gordon wants to play for the charge the Chargers want Melvin Gordon the place so you would think at some point there there would be a compromise that could be made to get Mel in the camp because he remains to be seen you know Melvins representation that told the Chargers that you know that they would demand a trade at the contract demands aren't aren't made the charges are willing to trade him they basically haven't control for the next two to three years due to make five point six million in the following years rookie deal and they get franchise in another couple years no but it is important in terms of where the charge you want to go in the post season they can win games without knowing the crew that last year they want **** when no one was injured the issue is is can they want simple without melon and I think the answer probably is no and so I think that does give me a little bit of leverage yeah well he might want to look Gordon at levy on bell scenario the now jets running back doesn't second guess himself for sitting out last season a decision that cost them fourteen million in salary he did say you wish you could have told fantasy owners some type of way to not draft him or pick him never made it on the field

Why think to to really that headline villier being cloudy? Melvin Gordon in particular has signed his franchise tender. We don't really know what's going to go on with him as far as when he will report if he's going to you know he'll report at some point or the regular season Starts Melvin Gordon. He's one of these situations where he wants a long term deal. You'RE GONNA play on his fifth year option. He wants to secure is long term financial future right now nope as all running back Zeke Elliot who you saw brief clip there also in that clip right there. I mean he's a guy who has two years left that he can play unders rookie contract. I mean these running backs right now. They feel the accelerated sense of urgency to try and get their long-term deals deals done because they know teams are going younger and cheaper younger and cheap way running back and they understand why and these guys know. They're not going to be fooled into thinking that you can that. They have to prove themselves before they get paid because once they proved themselves a lot of times teams won't pay them. It's a whole different discussion to talk about sort of resetting that running back mark but there is no question that's where we are and that's the reality those players are having to work within right now. Let me ask you this. We've we've seen a number of quarterbacks who are also in line or looking for a contract extension victor who gets one. I think Dak Prescott mainly because obviously his age. She's the youngest of the crew. I mean when you look at Tom Brady as well as Philip rivers. He's the youngest quarterback out of that group that we're talking about. Obviously these other two are phenomenally more accomplished than than that Prescott is at this moment Eh Dak Prescott given his statistics given his age. I think he gets done. I I think the other two guys obviously get extensions maybe much smaller in years because of their as and just kind of give them they've earned that year to year kind of thing and extend them for not too much tom longer but I think that gets paid out of these and when he talked about his other two of course talking about Tom Brady and Philip rivers both of whom will likely say pudding continue playing for the team a little bit different right. I mean the threat of those players to party and go in somewhere else feels unlikely at at this point. Both of them want to get a probably two or three year extension done demet not necessarily conclude their career but it prolongs the current tenure with their teams more familiarity there as compared to Dak Prescott who for the first time and perhaps last time

"What's up, y'all? Tune in this Sunday for football doubleheader has the Miami Dolphins visited Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting New England Patriots was in about vivid seats, pre-game begins at noon eastern on most ESPN radio stations. I got a little personal to get into. But that'll be one of mine after my next break right now. I got the great Louis Riddick NFL analyst extraordinaire on the line with yours truly who just over the last few weeks many making a little bit bowl with me. Get a little bit bowl around it. I wanna stand. But it's all right. What's up Louis? How you doing man? No, man. You know, you, and I we just come straight forward. Would you talk ball? That's all you know, how it is. They not. But love you, my brother, you know, that. But I do need you to explain yourself before charges before I get into the charges, and what a matter of fact, I'll let you explain yourself about Chicago Bears in a minute. But now for. Now talk to me about what you saw last night. How did the charges win this game? Yeah. You know, Baid bid. They did a lot of old fashioned things. Meaning David, first and foremost, they remained patient and toys, which a lot of people go. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Just get to what they know. They remain patient. They remain poised. They didn't get outside of what their game plan was which was to try and stay bound make sure that the cheese couldn't just t- off on them rushing the passer because I tell you what when did teach could t- up on immersed into passer. They were knocking around now dean, Justin we're coming. Chris Jones was coming those guys were coming after him. So they remain patient even when they were down fourteen in the fourth. They were they still remain true to who they are that birth. That's number one number two two in the second half. They really started to make Patrick Mahomes uncomfortable from a defense standpoint. Chiefs were also committing a lot of penalties. They were they weren't able to shrink together consistency on offense and side of the ball where they could eat up more clock, and they could limit some Philip chances at bringing his team back. That's another problem. What else leads to that? Damian williams. Running game wasn't a big enough part of the game in that second half in those crucial kind killing moments. And that's something that Andy's been criticized for before. I'm sure it's something people will start criticizing before. Again. Even though he has what everybody knows is a superstar once in a lifetime quarterback. You still can't put that much pressure on him to win football games. All the time by himself. Are you last week when got? I've got hot. What do you got hot? You couldn't go down because the secondary just doesn't have horses and deal with the kind of wide receivers they were dealing with last night. I don't care if they're not Mike Williams is a stud and you'll be hearing about him for a long time for now on are. You of the mindset that it's time to start looking at the Los Angeles charges as a legitimate contender for the Super Bowl. Do you think that they can come out of the AFC? Yeah. I think I think some people have really have been floating their name out there as a possibility. Anyway, I and foremost because Anthony lends a tremendous coach coach is a very hard nose old school. Brand of football within the context of the modern game. It has teams play that way. Never quit. They never give up and they're talented. They have all fame caliber quarterback when they're healthy on offense. They have one of the best running back in the league. And they have one of the best wide receivers in the league. And Keenan out so deep inside they rush the passer, and they've got an absolutely racer at eight the Derwin James, they've got all the components that would lead you to believe this is a team that can do damage once they get into the playoffs because they have people who are high level people in critical traditions and great coaching. So yeah, they're going to be there. And that's why they're record is what it is Louis Riddick right here with Steven ESPN radio ESPN news. Let's get to this point..

"But Louis Riddick as a person that's been associated with the NFL for so many years. Do you find that the NFL is being a bit more victimized than they should be in light of the fact that when we talk about? The issue of domestic violence, and what have you it is clearly a pervasive issue throughout our society. It is something that goes on a lot of different places in corporate America and beyond. So to point the finger at a few athletes to sit up there and excoriate not just the NFL brand, but professional athletes as a whole because that's how people tend to look at it some time, you know, it seems a bit unfair in is of many, what do you say that? Yeah, I agree. I don't think it is the fans right to get lazy. And then start to paint everybody with the same brush and say, well, the league is made up of a bunch of women abusers. And I don't think it's fair to stand up and say the league absolutely doesn't care about domestic violence and doesn't care about women's rights and doesn't care about women are treated, but I think the league needs to do a much better job at being vigilant as far as their efforts to find out information and makes her players. Learn a lesson that look in our. Business in our world. We can't save everybody. We can't you know. I wouldn't say let me let me back. I'm say this a lot of people look at sports fair or not Stephen aid to kind of set the standard for how maybe they live their own lives and kind of how they define their own raise their kids. Exactly. And that's not right. But it's the truth. I mean, parents all the time are saying look at that athlete. Look at how hard he worked in how he was able to pull himself out of poverty and take care of his family. You need to be just like that guy. Not even knowing anything about the guy. Right. So you what happens is now the league is putting position. Now, we're all tell you what society overall looks at sports, right? Sometimes say, look, we just want to look at sports as a way to escape sometimes society looks at sports to set the example for them because no one else has set an example for them. So they go or well NFL, why don't you show the world won't you so society how we can actually punish people who do commit acts of violence against women. And so is this your vigilant about it? And it's you are very serious about it. So do something about. This stuff when it comes to cream hunting Reuben foster. And then when they don't then they rip them apart and see leads the league in the league. It's put in this position of wait a minute. I thought we were like football. You know, we were about we're in the business of playing sports. We're in the business of playing football. Exactly now their responsibility has expanded exponentially. Because of how popular sport is. And how important people view sports, and it is kind of a double edged sword it is kind of unfair. But it comes with the territory..

"Can they can they win three games in a row and played some of their best football just for that short amount of time. Yeah, I believe they can told up you did it last year when they got the off why can't Dallas do it people? Just don't expect them to do it because they expect them to fault or they expect them to kind of regress back to who they've been which is a team that just blows chances when when? The stakes are the highest this this team looks a little different Louis Riddick. He has been NFL front office inside right here with Steven ESPN radio. ESPN news. We saw we've seen rather Aaron Donald get paid. We saw a Khalil Mack. Get paid particularly when you hear guy like DeMarcus Lawrence opened his mouth who've got franchise tagged before this season began. And now, you know, you're in a position where you you might need to take care him considering how much money they're worth how much money's DeMarcus Lawrence worth to the Dallas Cowboys, the Marcus says the top jeez. As far as ED's Clair's concern as as good as anybody in the league. So. Does he work? What Justin Houston's getting paid as he works somewhere in the vicinity, where von Miller is getting paid. And That's that's what I'm what asking. I'm asking. I'm just talking about one. Is he end when other guys he's there? He's there. He's there. And I'll tell you this the greatest compliments says you can get as a player as when other people respect you. And I know the teams that played against the Dallas Cowboys last year in particular and worrying about this. And I think he's playing even better. Now, does this the first thing you do when you're playing Dallas Cowboys figure out what number ninety s 'cause he will wreck your whole afternoon. Will wreck your whole afternoon. Let's transition to the AFC before we get on outta here. What are your thoughts about the patriots? And where they are right now. They scare me a little bit. I'm I'm a little concerned about him. Because when you're talking about margin for error again, their margin for error is very slim. They don't have the we're we're gonna see what we're gonna see if gronk can stay healthy because he changes everything they can do offensively. We'll see Josh Gordon b can become that deep threat Julian's going to always be Julian and the Sony. Michelle can remain healthy image as white or great one two punch the kind of play off each other. How is Tom feeli Brady? How's he feeling? He just hit a slump is he feeling better. Now is there something wrong with and physically? They're not some we're there's a lot of question marks with them. So that worries me because there's so many question marks depends on whether or not dominant by any means by any means, they beat you cerebral defensive with God knows what's coming. They don't beat you physically. So it worries me a little bit with them. How much of a threat do you perceive? Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens being. He's gonna make his third straight start. This week. Well, they'll try and be the same way. Dallas tries to beat you a great defense. Strong running game opportunistic passing game. It's just a dachshund better passer at this point to Lamar is. So if you're if you're gonna compare those two teams, but that's one meal hand win this that if they really want to win big if they really want to be taking very serious Lamar has improved his passing especially outside the numbers and down the field if he can do that. It's a scary football. What were your thoughts about Big Ben Rothlisberger open and his mouth and being critical of his players this week?.

"Like visuals. Shut the fuck up. They will get to the point you guys ever seen the chronicles Riddick. Yes. Yes. I think it's the second one where like you could they could see the person's last thought. Like, so someone like I like there's like these. Let's say robots, right? I don't remember like these monsters, and then like the they're kind of like the security of this village. I faintly remember this. But essentially there's like you don't wanna fuck with them. They'll fuck everybody else out there huge. But then these people kill him. Right. So in order for them to see who killed them. They record everything. So they can like after he's dead. The bodyguard is dead. They can go back into his memory and see who killed them because it caught his last memory wasn't that the talking about the minority report. Now, I'm about chronicles Riddick, bro. Whatever I don't point is. It's a technology that will pretty much like let's say you could you're born you have this chip instilled in your head. And then when you're fifteen or ten you can just go back into your memory and see your first memories. You didn't remember as possible because the brain is like that you're talk. I think it might be. I'm saying how far away are. We like do we think that that? That could be realistically diner. And I mean, I think right now they can move fingers and pets together hearing and all sorts of things. So I think with another entering the biggest time of like the study of brain like right now, we're about to like, we're studying the brain. We've never been able to cause technology like we were limited. So what we can get. Now, we're like learning more about the brain than we've ever learned before we're going to end up doing we're going to we're going towards what they call it. Now nanotech little digital shits fucking make they do whatever for you. They enter your body build a car with that you can eat the fucking that'll take and get full nanotech is like the wave of the future for shit like that. Let me ask you then with hip hop. Do you notice a difference? What people are just I guess music, general D-Notice, what people are talking about stuff is different nowadays subject matter. I hear that. But I think that that's part of what hip hop was to begin with. You know, it was a change in in the contract of how we view things it was it was something different. It was something that was changing, and it's changing constantly and some people don't buy with that. But I think the core of the community kind of understands like yoga there. I agree with it or not that's still part of the community..

"It's gonna take a lot to beat them. It will take a lot to beat them on a consistent basis, but in the NFL they don't play series. They play off games, especially when it counts the most in the playoffs. It's do or die single elimination. So I'm just worried a little bit about the fact. I don't wanna hear the players saying that four games in the season. I want to hear that Louis Riddick which you're talking about getting to the quarterback and the importance of doing that generalizing, we know what the story has been over the past. We clay Matthews complaining about the new rules and how soft the game is become an hour. It's compromised, a team's ability and. Willingness to get to the quarterback, Josh Norman has done the same thing. DJ swearing you went on a wreck and talk about it's an insult of football and what football is supposed to be about. You talk about the importance of getting to the quarterback. But right now there is I, I don't know how much fun there is in getting to the quarterback in looked like you might get flack from having bad breath for crying out loud. That's how bad the rules appear to be right now. What's going on with that situation. And why did the National Football League who met for a couple of hours this year, the competition committee and others, and they said, you know what? We ate in anything. What does that about? It's about they want protect their moneymakers. That's what it is. They want to keep Aaron on the field. They wouldn't keep big bend on the field. They're going to keep Tom on the field. Patrick Mahomes. They wanna keep these guys on the field at all costs because they know when those guys aren't playing fan interest starts to go downhill because they think the game gets affected adversely to the point where they don't wanna watch. Look, they, they don't wanna watch backup, quarterbacks play. They just don't in the league, knows this. So they're going to do everything they can to protect their investment in protect. The guys who really drive viewership in the NFL that that's really in a nutshell. That's what it is. I will say this though, still the only way you can slow down offense of scoring and slowdown from being an aerial salt every game is to affect the quarterback because the further you move away from the ball, the more likelihood there is for high impact collisions in the league doesn't want those either. Now they're not calling them at the same rate. They were calling them in the preseason, but I promise you this, let some guys start laying some people out. They'll start dipping into players pockets and suspending me get some of that. They shove Big, Ben RAF I noticed shows about, and I mean, getting caught for the way the most ticky tack vows Magic's. You know what you have to continue to try and affect the comfort, the level comfort of quarterbacks. Otherwise you might as well not even go out there because they have, we know everything's in their favor, but you have to affect the last night. What we saw was this remember when Aaron when Aaron he took. Kirk cousins. It's slung around to him to the ground, right? I mean for a while there, I thought that's going to be called a personal foul because this look disrespectful way to them on the ground so you can still put the quarterback down..

"Now you're fighting for a wildcard spot instead of fighting for division title. So it's predictable, but it's alarming and they need to kind of turn it around best in two thousand. I'm telling you feed me league wide. This is, I think one of the number one reasons why you play from some teams. There's one because of how they're putting together, meaning their butts guys or maybe familiar with each other. And mostly because those guys weren't really with other aren't playing in the preseason very much anymore because everyone's trying to make sure that their best players healthy, no, keep them healthy until the regular season. Start that off something. I talked about a couple of different times and I could just play itself out Louis Riddick right here with Steve name on the ESPN radio and ESPN news. Let's transition AFC west real quick. I sorta charges lose, but it was to Kansas City which is relatively could give considering at high powered offense that they have. We saw Denver would von Miller just reek havoc and handed it business defensively last week against Seattle. And then of course we had the Oakland Raiders now to me Oakland. Jon Gruden, Derek Carr. They've got to work some things out. Amari Cooper being targeted just three times that's problematic, but. Also the return of Montana's Brian. I understand it from a business perspective, had you not cut them and you'd be obligated to guarantee those dollars for full year by letting him go and then bringing them back the team control, not him, I get it, but considering the fact that another suspension could be lurking. Okay. Or is lurking. It's possible. I don't know if I would have brought him back Louis Riddick. What about you. Yeah. I mean, look, a lot of that the raiders right now are doing don't really make a lot of sets could be in terms of do a Sophoclean, how you build a football team in the hell. You basically run your football operations and you know considering what they're trying to get done there. But look, I think right now they're team that kind of they're doing some pressure right on right out of the gate here because of how poor the performance was because of the expectations that are on their head coach right now because much money, he didn't pay. And I think they're going to try just about anything that they w and they don't really care what anybody else thinks about how they're going about their business or how much they make it make sense or it doesn't make sense. But I am alarmed about that football team because I thought it would look much better as I stood down their own the field watching play the Rams. They looked out classmen that really did book out class that I know and John these types of things up out there and get everybody pointing direction and believing because when things are going south in the NFL like this. Scary. Anything goes south in a hurry with people don't believe in the leadership at the very top because they're making moves like this that don't fly in the face of conventional wisdom. So I hope they're able to turn that around AFC west Liz is a powerful most division as far as concern, not they're running the right way, their coach the right way them Broncos there that I think is going going to surprise people. And I know we've both like case keenum and I think that's going to be a team that's going to be in the end is forest fight for that division title chargers? Unfortunately, continued to underperform. They're going because it's one of those teams that I expected them to be much better. So it's like the raiders have to keep going. The ladies figure some stuff out very quickly. And I think see them makes move. They make you scratch your head. Then it's all about trying to get a job loser in a group to get on out of here..

"Now i'm just doing me right in down this gets you quiet two can't go and louis riddick joins us now and we gotta get your take on the levee unveil situation we left the show yesterday thinking maybe they would get something done and they didn't so ultimately what happens here mozelle would you have in this case is really a player right now who is really dug it on the fact that i don't wanna be valued by the position of running back per se i want to be valued for what i bring to the position as an individual player and sometimes look even agents you know when you're when you're dealing in the type of money kind of groundbreaking money for that position that you were dealing with with lebanon bell talking about fourteen million per year look i i would be it would be difficult for me to believe that the agents but did not advise levy on the take this deal i think this to me this sounds like a situation where the player really thinks that he wants to kind of redefine what it means to be a weapon that plays running back and he's willing to head and bet on himself and take the risks that you know what he's not going to get hurt this year he's gonna hit the market in two thousand nineteen because the steelers won't wanna franchise him again and that someone is going to step up and pony up and and and signed him to a deal that really kind of flips the running back market on its head for all the young guys coming up playing the position that potentially are as dynamic as him will they team do that that's a great question greeting but i i don't i don't quite honestly see it and look at it as a player i would love to see it as a former player i'd love to see the market blown up and i'd love to see guys at that position really get paid for what they do on the football field regardless of what some of the long you know the long standing ideas about what running backs are and how they should be valued are now from a free free i mean from a general manager's perspective like i know that gm's look at that position and look at it almost like i said like before like buying a car that as soon as you buy one of those players when you bring one of those players in it's a depreciating asset immediately because of the type of punishment that they take and many gm's are going to think look because of the success that you've had in the nfl with second third fourth round picks at the running back position that kind of value that they presented when you look at alvin kamara and kareem hunt and guys of that nature and how good they been why would we want to go ahead and set the market and break the market and blow the market up at this position for this player we can when we can get a player at a much more reasonable cost to us as far salary cap is concern and disperse that money elsewhere on the salary cap i i know that's how gm's think and most times when you get a big contract like that when you're talking about a player like this the team that knows you the best usually is the one that's going to want to pay you having been free agency many times from a front office type of deal when you're buying a player like that and bringing in someone who wasn't homegrown in your under your umbrella and your organization that's a big big risk particularly at that position but hey trust me i'd love to see it i'd love to see him reset the market i it just be good for every other player and quickly beatles it was asking me this during a break and i don't really have an answer so there two years on this hour on.
