"Ended up observing He thought about all the animals he needed something fun, something inspiring. Something different. Now, if you're able to stay with us for the entirety of this program, you'll discover several of the most joyous holiday tunes of all time, have a tragedy as a part of their origin story. As Robert May was creating his kid's coloring book about that special animal, his wife was diagnosed with cancer. Just a few months later, she passed away, leaving me a widower. His young daughter Barbara, now without a mom. May his employers tried to comfort the young copywriter even suggesting he takes some time off from his coloring book project. May apparently told them no. He needed this project now more than ever. But what was the coloring book going to be about? What animal would get the starring role? Perhaps it was little Barbara that inspired the final decision. May often took her to the Lincoln park zoo, a fixture in Chicagoland, where the young child would make a beeline for her favorite place at the zoo, the deer pen. Perhaps by now you've put together the department store that may work for, was Montgomery ward. And in 1939, they distributed almost 3 million copies of maize creation about a little deer with a red nose that didn't quite fit in at first, but eventually would end up saving Christmas. We had the character we had the campaign, and now we had the coloring book. And just a couple of years later, we'd finally get the Christmas song we all know. Courtesy of another Jewish man by the name of Johnny marks. The record label smelled a hit, so they pitched it to one of their biggest recording stars at the time. Mister Gene Autry. Gene took one look at the song? And he hated it. It turned out to be Autry's wife who convinced him to just record the song and maybe it could be the B side of one of your hits. As it would turn out, Autry's recording immortalizing the tiny flying reindeer would become the second highest selling Christmas record of all time

"Not done. In his mind, it's not, but it feels pretty complete when you get there. What's not done about it in his mind? I think that so he didn't have a master plan. So he, as he got more money or as he got any money, he would periodically update it and expand it and it would grow. There wasn't a sort of overarching strategy for it. And I think in his mind it can keep growing in a sort of organic way and he can keep modifying the existing parts of it once it actually continues to expand. That being said, a lot of people seem to feel that it's done. And being there myself, it definitely felt like a cogent sort of clear work of art. And sorry if you want to go see it, what this year, because she can't. Well, so a couple thousand people applied in the first week that it was said to be open. 6 people can visit at a time no more per his instructions. And something for the masses, everybody. Well, you know, and it feels like it should be, but I understand. Yeah, the thing is that you want to be there by yourself. The minute that becomes an amusement park is the minute it doesn't have this kind of otherworldly sense of contemplation. Where's it cost that to go see it? Around a $150 for general tickets in theory, but currently they're not really charging anyone anything to show up. And anyone in the surrounding counties can go for free. All right, I would love to actually just keep talking about this, but I do feel like we have to go from those massive monuments to the elite buildings known as co ops. A different kind of monument. In some people's minds. Tell us about this story. Well, how come co ops, Chris? This is a bit of a city and country special. We've reviewed two hotels. And Michael heizer's artwork is called city. And so we thought, really, let's get into commentary on the city and then let's do our own commentary on the city. And these are perceived to be relics from a different time. So just generally speaking, the kind of best co ops in New York City are on the upper east side and on Central Park west on the west side. And they are places that are owned by their shareholders, which means that everyone who lives in these buildings has a financial responsibility to maintain them. And what that has ultimately led to for decades is super, super, super restrictive, entry requirements to actually get in. And the co op board can just say, no, they can't be a part of our people heard stories. Like it's nuts. This is a thing that people outside of New York City have no idea how they work. I mean, we're talking about buildings where you have to pay in all cash in order to actually buy a place there. And you're not even actually buying the place. You're buying shares in the building. And to be clear, all cash to the tune of tens of millions of dollars and oftentimes there's a requirement that you have tens of $1 million left in your bank account. What's great about that is what's great about that is it comes with all these amenities usually, like a brand new pool, a state of the art gym. Right? Right? Yeah, terrorists. None of that. Wait, what? No. Central air all the time. That would be that would be reasonable. This is insane. This is completely crazy. It didn't co op turn down Madonna one. Yes, the bears for things. Right? Famous. Come on. That being said. This is not a piece about how awful co ops are. This is a piece about how co ops very, very slowly, have sort of woken up and realized that they are being left in the dust by super high end condominiums where you just simply own your apartment outright. Very different, less restrictions. And co ops have basically decided that they are going to lower the intro requirements ever so slightly in an effort to not only raise their property values, but also get a different generation of people inside. Hence the co op flip flop. Say that 5 times fast. Hey, we only have about a minute or so left. Chris what else is in I know there's a place Tim is dying to go to. So I'm not going to be able to go. Okay, so we have two hotel reviews. The first is wildflower farm, which is a new auberge resort upstate, which is a, it's a sort of a working farm, you can go feed chickens, you can go feed pigs, or Jim gatti, went and reviewed it and said it's very luxurious. You can send a $1000 a night to feed those chickens. And then Hannah Elliot, who is, as you know, the coolest person in the world who's also nice. We had her fly from LA to review the Chelsea hotel, which is which has been resurrected. It's still full of ghosts. It's the famous hotel where Arthur Miller stayed Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith and Robert and Robert May before were roommates there. It's been closed for many years and being Ben renovated. It's been a $100 million renovating it. And now it's this kind of combo of glamorous and also kind of crappy. It really feels like it should be. And Hannah loved it, and rooms there start at about $350 a night, so it's a little cheaper than the wildflower. Oh my God. What a great section you guys really loved it and loved reading through it. Thank you so much. Yeah, big thank you to Bloomberg businessweek arts columnist James Tom and Bloomberg pursuits editor Chris rouser. Thanks so much guys. And that wraps up the weekend edition of Bloomberg business week from Bloomberg radio. I'm Carol master, thanks so much for joining us. And I'm Tim snyk, be sure to tune into

"Maxwell would recently passed away. I believe Paul Craig Roberts may be one of those selected he's a former White House economic adviser. Stanford fellow Oxford fellow. But I'd been doing this show since officially the first show was January. I think it was the January 3rd of 2017. It began preliminary preparation for the show in 2016. So I've been doing this research and project, if you will. For 6 years now folks. And I do it because of necessity. I do it because the deep state has become so entrenched in manipulating the American conceived narrative. It's simply gone too far and if we allow it to continue to be construed in indie to continue to. Throw shade on the view, then the country will crumble. And it's being dismantled and it's easy to say that and it's easy to hear that it's a totally different thing to react to that. And that's what I've done is reacted to that and it just so happened in 2016. I was. Coincided doing this work with Donald Trump presidency when he began talking about fake news. When he began talking about deep state and I never really took into consideration either one of those terms, pride of hearing him speak about that. And not that I care about either one of the major political parties in this country because I think they're both corrupt, but what I will do is stand for the constitution and when we came to Miami Beach with the Zika virus, which is why I began doing the research, I was quickly led to Anthony Sutton who's the Stanford Hoover, fellow that walked away from Stanford because of censorship. And he began talking about the corruption of the banking system of Federal Reserve. So this is basically a quick debrief of. What's been happening in the world of Ian trachea here in the past. 8, ten days. Because there have been a lot of developments that are certainly a continue to be lots of developments. I want you to go right now. Well, first off, go to the research tab of my website. That is 5 years worth of research that I've compiled for you. These are free books available online, archived through archive dot org, archives, various other institutions like the WorldCat archive, but these are select publications that I feel are pertinent. To helping you understand how would the United States has certainly become geographically independent, but it's never become economically independent. Biden being the 46th president, Garfield having. Garfield being, let's say, because of Garfield, there was actually 45 presence, something like that. But. Biden being the 46th president, only one, only one U.S. president has left office without a federal debt. Deficit. Now, this is a fact. This was 1842 Andrew Jackson, and he ran on the reelection platform to kill the banks. That should be alarming to anyone listening to this right now. It should be alarming to. And it's, you know, it's your decision to sit back and your comfort chair or sit back in your car or sit back in your couch or a continued drug in whatever you do and just say, oh, it doesn't, it's not pertinent to me. It doesn't really affect me. Yeah, well, it may not affect you, but it will likely affect your children's generation. And if you get that long, it will affect your grandchildren's generations. And if it gets to that point, then a gold standard, which hasn't existed in this country since 1971, will become you. Whereas what I mean is a digital currency, a cryptocurrency running off of a human being. This is my projection of what I feel. Global currencies is probably heading towards. That's a Microsoft patent. These aren't theories likely conspiracy, yes, but not theories. And a U.S. Constitution will not be standing. So you can say, well, it doesn't affect me. You know, as you drive your Porsche or as you get your house painted this year, but folks. If you don't become uncomfortable. And if you don't, if you don't start realizing that you need to become uncomfortable, then the country that you know and hopefully you love, will dissolve. So it's time to get uncomfortable America. It's time to get very uncomfortable. Okay, so I was I've been doing what is essentially activism now, of course, as I mentioned, for 6 years, and a lot has happened, and certainly a lot has happened in the past two of those 6 years. I do have my book now sitting with the publisher, ready for print. Hopefully I have those this month. The book is freedom reserve, no more lies. And I was recently invited to D.C.. By someone I call a sponsor to engage in an event, a two day event from an organization called the America first priority institute. Now outside of clay Clark's movement, the rewinding tour that he has with the general Flynn and Patrick burn is somewhat associated outside of a movement like that. Nothing in America is going on right now to really make change. Now clay doesn't tackle policy. He simply just kind of gains awareness, brings lawyers, doctors, people better. Difference makers to bring again to educate and bring awareness to. Local congregations. And he's been very successful in that. And what Claire has done in so many ways and the people that have been involved in clay's movement have kept what I call this deep state at bay. Of course, the second Second Amendment is really what keeps them at bay. But outside of clay Clark, this is the AF pi organization that is about a year and a half old. They tackle on D.C. policy. So something that sticks out in my mind is I had not returned to D.C. since being at the ellipse on the 6th of January, where I listened to the president to speak. Now I didn't get anywhere near the capitol that day. I nor did I have an intention to get near. I am a nonviolent person and do not promote it. In phasma matter of fact, I hadn't owned my first gun until the social unrest happened. Under the Trump presidency, which I feel had nothing to do with Donald Trump. Had everything to do with a deep state attack on social social uprising to make his presidency look like it was unstable. That's my personal feeling. So no, I was nowhere near the capitol that day. I had been to D.C. twice that fall.
Mark Walters: Confident Thomas Would Favor Gun Owners in NY Case
"The Bruin case. How enormous was this decision? And how much do you have to love justice clarence Thomas? And it's right. Oh my gosh. Let me start with this. Clarence Thomas is the individual that we had hoped would be able to write this decision. We anticipated a majority victory here of 6 three. We anticipated that. We have felt that Roberts may be a little wishy washy, which is why the court didn't take a case over the last ten years. Now that the court thank God for Donald Trump has a conservative majority, we felt very confident that Roberts would rule our way in this New York
"robert mays" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"That frustrates me a little bit is as much as he struggled with the slider, he couldn't come close to hitting a high fastball this year. Then you've all got away from that. The two, the two big hits in these NLD S's Freddie Freeman homers off Josh hayters to me second best pitch, a slider. Cody Bellinger gets a hit off Duval to me second best pitch slider. Those two guys have ridiculously effective fastballs and those were not the pitches that they threw in those situations and it hurt them both. Yep, Gabe kapler said after the game that he was not going to second best second guess the pitch selection, but I agree with you. In fact, it was Doug and I were talking. Our guest was that he was going to come at him with a high fastball, a pitch he couldn't get to, but you could understand. I mean, just slider after slider after slider in this game against Cody and the Giants dominated him during the regular season. Max Scherzer, you know, I was joking during baseball tonight last night how they need to give MRIs to the other Dodgers after last night because how hard Max Scherzer was celebrating no starting pitcher is more suited to be a closer than max coming through with his first career save. Yeah, there is every reason in the world to love what Max Scherzer does on the field as a teammate as a competitor. There's no holes in any of that because when you mix Uber talent with such dedication to his craft, such intensity, it's such a win win. So his reactions is looking at Dave Roberts Hector in the season, Dave Roberts would joke when max comes in or comes out or soon after a game or even before a game, you know, everyone else is looking for high 5s, pets on the ass. Don't touch Max Scherzer. His body is Adrian Beltre's head. Do not touch me. Do not invade my airspace. I need this room and that's just an impossible thing to poke holes in. I love Max Scherzer and I love them on my team. How about Mookie bets, he's now 13 for 24, 5, 42 batting average in 6 elimination games since joining the Dodgers. And I was thinking about this last night, Carl that I mean, you and I have heard stories about how hard Mookie betts is on himself. There is a along with me in a great player. There is a deep insecurity there, and yet in big moments he always manages to find the center stage. Two things about Mookie last night, they clearly had a game plan against Logan Webb. You know, like, we're not going to we're not going to stretch the zone here. We're going to wait for him to throw one in the zone. His first at bat, epitomized the execution of the game plan perfectly. Bottom half of the ending Mookie betches in right field and there are some shots hit out there and he's involved defensively. Not necessarily web gen type plays, but really good plays. So to me, after one inning, Mookie betts is locked and loaded. We got him. He got a hit, and he made a defensive play. So any of those I'm beating beating the heck out of myself are gone. He knows at least to me and you know, just being an athlete or being a competitor, you realize like this, it's not going great today and I can feel it or wow. Okay. It's working. It's coming easily. It's free. He was free after one inning last night. And saw the ball differently than 8 other Dodgers that came to the plate behind him. He was the only guy that did that against Logan web who again makes you feel like on the short list of Cy Young candidates going into next season, Logan webs on the list. Mookie betts felt great. And I love the fact that you could tell what his plan was and that first at bat. He finally got a pitch to hit and he drilled it in a left field. So Kevin cash spent the entire off season being second guess for that decision he made in the last game of last year's World Series pulling Blake Snell. I think that the second guessing of Dave Roberts may have followed him all the way into retirement, Carl, if they had lost that game last night because of the decision that was announced by the Dodgers hours before last night's game, Dave Roberts calling, Gabe kapler, hours before the game and letting him know, hey, we're not starting. We're starting Corey knabel as an opener. And they also plan to follow him with Bruce Dar gradual. Man, if this hadn't worked out, Carl for a defending champion, let's say if the Giants escort two three runs early, oh my God, the reaction would have been on social media. People would have lost their minds, so it's important in this moment to say, you know what? The analytics, the plan, the gambit that they played yesterday, it all worked out. Yeah, emphasis on worked out. You know, we started this conversation about Mike schilt and analytics. I you can not manage based on the result of how social media is going to treat you. In fact, I would strongly encourage everybody not to do anything based on how you think social media is going to treat you. That decision was not made in a vacuum in Dave Roberts shower before he went to the ballpark. That was a that was a consensus and a collaboration between everybody on that team and certainly in that organization at the top levels. Social media V dammed, Dave Roberts is going to go talk to Andrew Friedman and everyone else in the front office. And they're going to come together today if they had lost and said, well, we screwed that up. That didn't work. And look, there were some balls hammered in that first inning. One of them was going to be a home run in many ballparks. So I think to say it worked out is different than saying it worked. It worked out, they won the game. And by the way, they had history with that, too. This was not.

"This is classic. Early season overreaction. If you're going to start you know making a judgment on orlando brown and joe -tuni- based on two games against very tough opponents. That are not a great matchup for this team. One of which the team won the team lost by one only because they turned the ball over at the end. You know. I think we're we're going down the path that's just a You know probably not the right one when we start to judge team on that short of samples is just a few weeks ago. We were talking. And i was excited as excited as anybody about this roster saying this is as deep as they've been and as talented. This team is top to bottom. You haven't even seen the contributions out of the players that we are most excited about the young defensive players that mike. Dana's the the church wardens you know. Willygate junior there's a lot of players we haven't even seen on the field and and we haven't seen the impact that they're going to make long-term you know way way too early to get to get into all that. I think just phenomenal job. The team's success shows at one individual contract here and there I really couldn't care much less about as long as the team is better off than they would be otherwise. And they're able to make the moves that they wanna make going forward. There's never been any sign that visas handcuffed and his ability to make whatever moves he wants to make and those moves of ultimately lead to a lot of success. So so no. I'm not yet. Yeah unreal cook on tony. I he was the guy blocking Ah doh fe. i'll away. I believe is how you say his name. The the guy that force a fumble on clyde. He was attempting to block him. I should say he was kind in a in a bad spot. Alway got field enough to wear -tuni- wasn't able to get a clock on him and if he was gonna if you if you were to block him in that in the leverage he was in probably was going to be a hold. You really don't want a holding call at that point that's ten yards back. You get ten yards off the clock or ten seconds on the clock. Although i guess that wouldn't have been a huge deal at that point we put your ten yards back. Put you in a second and thirteen. If you get that whole you could tell. He was aware of that and did not want to hold right there and you cannot clyde needs to protect that ball. There's going to be hands grabbing the ball at all times when you're running the football that is not on the fact that away was able to get his hand in there. That's on clyde and for not putting hands the ball and having better on that play. So i don't want anyone to think that was the reason that fumble happened. I don't think he's been bad at all. Brown has been bad at all. I think the best offensive lineman as we've talked about so far as trey smith which is a late round draft pick by that same bread that that one on the hot seat so and lucas. The is look pretty solid in his own right. You know given a guy who who missed last season. I think the on the right track and they have the right pieces. It's just a matter of getting to to work together and we knew this would happen with the offensive line. We knew the offensive line would take a little bit of time gel. Let's give him a chance to do that. Before we start worrying about Joe to orlando brown or or any of these other guys so far so as i look through the rest of the big picture questions there is tied shanks and others. Who have who've asked steve spagnolo in the hot seat. Ron what do you think about spags in his job see. I do think there are some things that we've already kind of mentioned that bags could be better. You know. I think he does need to make the call and take niemann off the field. Even if it is for no daniel who doesn't have as much experience maybe in this defense. It was clear that name was reliability and has been alive but i mean we all know everyone listening to this is probably said the same thing last year that we have heard any us say the same thing as well and and also the play of sorenson over thornhill may be another reason. Why spags should get some some some heat a little bit but in terms of being on the hot seat being fired absolutely not do we have. We already forgotten. The bob sutton era that sutton make adjustments not same. It was a same defense the same scheme over and over. He never made adjustments. Never tried to be creative with anything. Religious left his corners who are absolutely awful on man to man coverage and that's why the cheese lost at afc championship. In my opinion spags does not give a lot of this corners. Who aren't great either. He gives them a lot of help. Protect some a little bit. We did see that blown coverage it's kind of hard to tell who's on. I think ward thought. Honey badgers gonna take him deep and honey badger thought he was staying in man. That's that's kind of a miscommunication on them. And i think that's between them rather than on spags necessarily they gotta get that sorted out but i suspect one of the best defense coordinators. The nfl asked anybody around the league. I listen i listen to like the athletic podcast. Or example robert mays it's always raving about how good of a defensive coordinator and defensive play. Caller spags is how much he he confuses the offense at times. Look the ravens. Offense is very unique. It's hard to game plan against and at the same time like we've mentioned over and over. The defensive players need to execute assignments. It's not on spags to put them in the great tradition. Every single play. They need to make their own tackles any to get off their blocks and make plays. That was the main reason why there was such a such a liability blast night it was not spags game player playcalling. No doubt. yeah. I don't have anything to add to that. I think the you know the defenses is on the right track again. The defense was not the reason they lost the game last night. Their inability to capitalize On offense and the offense of other turnovers to me were much more of a reason. The defense can be better. I think it will be better. Just gotta give it time. Neil on both sides of another question here. I think pretty interesting that we saw back to back questions from remote mcdaniels on twitter. How do we transfer the money. We're paying hitch and frank over to matthew and then one live. The chief asked is tyrod. Matthew overrated does even deserve that extension. So we've got both sides of the overreaction here on what do you think about sarah method at an interesting time belonged to the chief to ask that. 'cause dr matthew about the only good thing about defense last night and if anything that's gonna to help them get that big contract a later on now. I am firms of the hitch and frank contracts. They've been bad guys. There's there's no doubt about it They're not worth the money. We are paying them you know. They're they're solid players. There are players that you want on your football team. Just not at that. Price and matthews agai. You pay whatever to have on your football team. That's just the difference between the two matthew makes plays when the other two really just do not i mean. Frank clark's plays in the playoffs. Obviously hitchens's made plays in spotswood. Just not consistently enough to justify their contracts..

"Guys are bills by the numbers actually give you the number and it is four. The number four. How about we talk about special teams? Because Tyler Bass had an amazing rookie year last year, we know that He now needs for consecutive made field goals for in a row to tie the team record of he has 14. If he gets four more, he'll tie the team record of Ryan Lindell set back in 2000 and seven so 14 consecutive made field goals in a row for the rookie. And in this stadium. I mean, that goes back to last year, November December How impressive is that? Chris Brown. It's impressive. Um, I would like to look at the distance, but, yeah, I mean, I think he's cemented himself as the kicker for this team for a very, very long time, barring an absolute collapse in his consistency and effectiveness. Because the Arizona game said it all last year on grass granted inside but on grass 53 55 58. To kind of keep the team in the game at that time last year against Arizona. Obviously, that game didn't go the way everybody wanted it to, But I think he cemented himself as the kicker for this team going forward for a long time. I mean, your rookie year you set the single season points record. I mean, come on. There's some big names in this bill's history among kickers Eric, the special teams group. Overall, we know that they have Tyler Bass, who's really terrific kicker. We just talked about that a moment ago, but you know, in the back end of returning punts, they lost an all pro. Return man, Andre Roberts. We've talked a lot about what he meant to this team. Isaiah McKenzie looked really good last year with the returning head against Miami and the finale. He's worked hard on it. But there's got to be a little bit of intrigue with bills, fans and maybe even the Steelers today. About Isaiah McKenzie. Returning punts. Yeah, in replacing Andre Roberts may be the best returner in the NFL that those are big shoes to fill. What Andre would do a lot of times would often go unnoticed on the statute. He would come up and make a fair catch on a punt that could have rolled out 20 yards. He didn't get it, and he would go up and make those plays. And so Isaiah McKenzie has big shoes to fill. And with a with a season with such high expectations with a roster with so few holes no, no holds on it. You start looking and you start nitpicking at the little things, and one thing is, if you get inconsistency in the return game games can be one in lost through special teams blunders at times, and you just want to see consistency. From Isaiah McKenzie, especially in the punt return aspects. Sal Carpaccio, Chris Brown. Eric, would that Dunn Tire Roundtable? Don't tear the official tire of the Buffalo Bills. We're gonna get to the actors in a moment, Chris, you can let me know if you have them And when you have them, we'll do that. We'll tell you are inactive list. Today, of course, is brought to you by Excelsior Orthopedics Express sideline with a sprain. Strain or break Get to Excelsior Orthopedics Express. We're going to get official word on Emmanuel Sanders when we do that. But Chris, if we could just talk about Emmanuel Sanders and his addition to this offense, because it is the change the one change we talked about from the receiver group. You did have Matt burritos You brought up But John Brownell, Emmanuel Sanders had. What does Emmanuel Sanders bring to this group? Diversity. I think he can threaten the defense at all three levels, and that's what makes him so effective. By the way, the inactives are out, guys. So a manual Sanders is up. So Zack Moss is inactive. Eric and I talked about this. And, uh, you know, Matt Brita had an outstanding preseason, in my estimation and training camp look proved to be a difference maker to the edge. I think Zack Moss was hurt by a full offseason of rehab, and I don't think he had his strong a preseason as the other two. So he is down Taiwan Jones and Matt Brita. And Devin Singletary are your three running backs Jones going to be on special teams. You know that Emmanuel Sanders is up. So you're inactive. Zack Moss. Tommy Doyle Boogie Bash him star as we knew, and Andre Smith. Um, Boogie bash. Um, you know, Eric and I were talking about because he does play on special teams. And you wonder if in time he is going to be the next Daryl Johnson on that unit. If he does become that he will be active more weeks than not, But for now. I think he's going to have to buy this time. Uh and then you know Tommy Doyle. The extra tackle is going to sit as anticipated, so I don't think there's any tremendous shocks. Maybe some people will be shocked by his.
"robert mays" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"Goff. It was like teacher and student and now when he's coaching matthew stafford it's like peer in peer And i think lead stafford is is a guy who finally mcveigh has somebody he really can trust you. You said something. I listened to your podcast with robert mays at the athletic which i thought was really good. It was really a deep dive into the rams. And i thought one of the points that you both made was the relative inness of this roster and the fact that they got a left tackle. Who's going to be forty years old. In december who is vital. You've got to corners in dairy sleeves and obviously jalen ramsey. Who are vital. You've lost your play calling playmaking safety in john johnson. So there's a little bit of adjustment there. You've lost your defensive brandon staley. You're gonna have the third defensive coordinator three years and and you know when obviously aaron donald is the best defensive player football but those those basically those four guys the two corners five guys to corners the left tackle aaron donald and matthew. Stafford eight to say that you absolutely have to have all those guys for seventeen games but there's there is some thinness behind them. And so i. I don't love their depth by thought. That was smart. The you robert mays pointing that out you know. Though i'll they've done a great job. Something wrote about early last year. They have found those john. Johnson's and maybe it's gonna be jolted jordan folder. You know what i mean. They have done a great job trying to beat the system and they basically said look. And i agree with this part. We'd rather use those late first. Round picks to get jalen ramsey together massive stafford instead of rolling the dice on some guy who's either going to be The best player to non cream addition of the draft or the fifth defensive. And who's the crap shoot anyway. You know what i mean. So they put themselves in position to hit on those second third round picks and they've done a pretty dang good job so i don't know if that's sustainable every year. You can do that but look i really debated hard on how to pick the nfc west. And i've i've defaulted the last couple years to what's the one thing i trust the most. And it's been russell wilson but there's a lot of things that you can trust with the rams to And so won't surprise me. I think they're going to be neck. Neck actually pulled five exempts in the league and the to rank the nfc one to sixteen and seattle and the rams tied for the third spot in the nfc. So i think it's going to be that type of a of a division where it could go either way and they're going to place himself games against one another. We'll see if maybe shane waldron leaving. The rams for the seat can provide a little bit of a boost or stafford come in and provide the boost. They need from goffin happily ever after they could go to the super bowl. Peter and your suit picks have been pretty good. I saw your in the football morning america column. I don't know if that was a little bit of a brag in there. Peter but those are pretty good. Recent super bowl picks. I mean you had like half the teams almost every time. Yeah i have five out of the last eight it was. It was a bit of a brag. But you gotta do. What i what i find. My is that I remember the year. I picked patriots. Rams i looked. This is what three years ago. I looked in the week after the championship game championship games where it was going to be the patriots and the rams and i think there's a very good chance i'm the only person who who picked that only person that i saw. Anyway they pick that. And and what. What i what i said to myself is okay. We we always get the living crap. Beat out of us for every prediction. That's wrong and most of them are honestly most of them are and and so. I guess i just kind of look at this and say just to let everybody know you know i. I'm saying peter's first year of watch league or whatever whatever you might say and look. It's it's so much. If i was if i if i had to bet the mortgage on something what would i do in vegas. I would bet. Kansas city in tampa every single year something happens. I don't know what's going to happen. Maybe nothing but if nothing happens to kansas city in tampa nothing of a very major way and they cruised to a super bowl rematch. Well it'll be the first time in. What twenty seven years or twenty eight years since buffalo in dallas repeated as the super bowl matchup it. Just it doesn't happen so you just try to say to yourself. What can i see happening otherwise so anyway. We'll see what's the best contingency. And i think you've got a great one. I will say this though. Kansas city's made it two years in a row mean so there and and three years ago they needed. They lost on of the miracle. Brady gronk finish in arrowhead. Who beat them. Yeah and not only that but i. I left the stadium that day. And i said man. I'll tell you if i was kansas city fan. I would be the bitterest person at the fact that i. I never got a chance. Such the ball in overtime. Because if i get a chance to touch the ball in overtime it's going to be brady. Goes down and scored. The touchdown goes down at scores a touchdown and then what happens. But anyway that was i. I i liked chiefs and i really like what they've done with their offensive line..
"robert mays" Discussed on Establish The Run
"In the sec as a true sophomore eighty five catches like one thousand nine hundred yards twenty touchdowns and now he gets the bengals. I mean and that was going against legit like first round. Nfl corners he wasn't picking on coastal carolina or whatever and now he gets the bengals. He forgot how to play football. I find that really hard to believe. But i'm scared a little bit man like chase very cheap and one. I'm scared he might rotate a little bit with tate and like we're trying to factor that into projections but to me. What i learned in camp is that everybody is giving up on. Jomar chase do desmond even. Nfl snap yet. So i don't know man. I'm still on him. i've been buying the dip. You can get him now. I'm like seventh or eighth round. People are so scared of jamaa chase that's my takeaway on the bengals. Anything on them. yeah. I'm buying the jitsu but i do think that he is at obvious. Danger at obvious. Risk of starting slow nate tyson robert. Mays have a greek. It's a it's really just a straight football it's not a fantasy show but on the athletic they do a podcast in or they have been doing a division previews when they were talking about the bengals. Make types who played mike tyson sun. You played at wisconsin with russell. Wilson and jj watt in that era I mean he. He knows a lot about the game and he's also worked as a coaching As an offensive analyst. I believe But he was talking about how he had some concerns about jomar chased from his tape. That the way the jomar chase one in college. He was like a bully. People would compare them to in-kwon bolden but he's you know inquiry bolden in dez bryant. This guys were tuned. thirty pounds. new jomar chase is six one two. Oh five and he wasn't a big separator in college and you know the bengals be. Writers have noticed the same thing about him that he struggled to separate. It's not just the drops he just hasn't looked dynamic. Is what paul diener. The athletic beat writer was writing today. So i mean i look. I think he's gonna. He's gonna come around but i think it's gonna take some time and i think the bengals offense as a whole is gonna take some time because this offensive line you're jackson carmen. Who we talked about on the brain on with rain. It's orne their second round pick. He he showed up outta shape to training camp and then did not win a starting job. I mean that's your second round pick on a battle offensive lines. That's really disappointing. Man if i was gonna say a penny soule turns out to be really good and marchese bust and jackson carbons a bus. I mean that's going to go down as a historically bad pig right and now they've got deal with these. Vikings defensive line which is loaded in week one. The bears the strength of their team. Is they're defensive front. And then i in week three they gotta go up against the steelers. So look man. I think they're going to get it together because the schedule does open up a lot after that. But i think it's going to take some time all alright. Browns take away from me. Man odell is back baby and you know people who have been listening for the last five six years. No i've had my struggles with odell but now the opportunity costs and odell was six seventh round. I mean and thousand situation where they're gonna play a lot of too wide receiver sets its targets per row. Ruined i think should be good. Beat writers just absolutely raving about the way odell looked coming off of they. Acl i think the browns are going to be really good this year. I have bets on brown's to win the afc north. I have bets on brown's to make the playoffs browns over win. Toto i think the browns are going to be very very good this year and i think odell will be a pretty big part of it anything on the browns for you know. I don't have a whole lot to add to that no okay. Denver broncos take away for me was at toronto williams is ready like in the final preseason game. They've arrested devante williams and made melvin. Gordon play. i don't think that means that trump is going to open the season. Melvin gordon but i think at worst dante's gonna get ten twelve touches right out of the gate and before too long. I think devante will be ahead of melvin gordon. I think that's exciting for this offense and his team which i think a lot of their players man. I like judy. I'm fine with sutton. I like noah fan. I like toronto williams. I like caja. Hamblur like i like a lot of their pieces. Obviously quarterback play is going to be a question with teddy but i like a lot of their pieces. I think they're set up to be better than people. Think at least on offense what you see. Out of the broncos. Well see lambing. Who covers the broncos for a radio station in denver and he's out a practice most days. I was listening to him. Talk about portland sutton. And he said that in training camp like court sutton has not been making plays off of his feet like you know going up and getting the football and that's a huge part of his game and so he is still you know kind of in this mode where a lot of guys are coming off. Multiple knee ligament tears. You're struggling to get his confident confidence. Back he's also a player that his contract you. We really have not heard them talk about giving him an extension. And they've got. I mean they've got noah fant it got jerry judy. They've got cage j. handler. I kind of wonder if portland sutton is trending to be the odd man out in denver. Yep let's go to the houston. Texans i mean. I don't know what to say. Beyond this is a stone cold expansion team. I mean people in the lions are bad. I think the lions which is walk. The texans i mean. Just just whoop the texans and i don't even know if they played this year. Not but you know. Talent at the skill position is obvious. Disaster talent on offensive line is about him for talent on pass. Rush is bottom three. I mean they're just an absolute mess. And i actually. I know you can make all kinds of volume arguments for brandin cooks. You know. I think the offense is going to be so decrepit that it's tough for me to even get excited about brandon cokes as an seventh eighth round pick. So i haven't really been taking him and you takeaways for you on the texans now. I agree with all that. They're also without bradley roby in week. One know their best cornerback. So they're they are absolutely awful. Do you think that let's get it started. You think that alabama could be my answer to those questions are always no but this might be the best. This might be the best chance. I don't know i mean also speaking of best chance the texans host the jaguars in week one. This might be one of their best chance to win a game all year. And and i mean definitely colts. It's going to be a problem. That when they only score like you know seven points. I mean oh i also the texans team. Total was twenty. Eight and a half. We shouldn't we shouldn't get into this..

"Just in fields as the guy just a question of how quickly the bears are willing to admit that. He's that solution i mean. Do you think if you had to guess. When do you think justin feels makes his first. Nfl start. i mean. I you say we to which i don't think is is super far fetched. I think the bears seemed pretty committed to this plan. So i think they might try to drag it out a few more weeks and a i think it might be like week five or six basically until now. He has no other option and their one in four were. They're really kind of in a desperate in a desperate situation another guy. Who if you like in your fantasy league having him it's like the next last back on your ostrich pick on your could lead to some pretty exciting second. Half scores for you as the season goes on. That bears giant's game in week seventeen just feels like just feels. It's going to score like fifty points and win some people their fantasy championships. That is so far away We have i think. That's it like any other any other thoughts. You have on these five quarterback situations. I guess the one thing that i always just keep coming back to you know aaron rodgers and patrick mahomes have kind of made these really really difficult for all these young guys who are gonna come after them because we spent what ten years hearing team saying. We're going to follow the aaron rodgers. not all in. This is the way that we develop it when really it was kind of a very unique very specific to the packers and who aaron rodgers was that this works that situation and now because nobody else did it. He spent ten years of team saying they wanted to develop quarterbacks that way in bring rookies along that way. It never happened right. I mean it was kind of a one time unique thing and now we're going here for ten years team saying we want to do with the chiefs did with alex smith and patrick mahomes not realizing that alex smith and patrick mahomes were like too super special sparkley rush who that just cannot be replicated and If you keep trying to do that and develop your quarterbacks that way all that's gonna happen is you're probably gonna mess up your rookie quarterback and you're probably gonna get fire. Yes that's what the end game comes down to it because conclusion here is at the end of the day. Coaches are going do a thing that is least likely to get them fire and in so many cases. That is seeing what you have with this young exciting quarterback and i think by the end of the year jones obviously already is a starter I would imagine fields as well and trae lance will all starting for their various teams but that is a long ways away and we will have you back on lindsay jones. Sure before then to talk about the nfl but until then where could people check out the work you do and you can find me on the athletic make sure you subscribe.

"We've seen or heard from cam newton. But it's just hard to imagine exactly where he gets the twenty twenty one season now right even the bills team that you know if you merely stopped the panthers facility for a day while sean. Mcdermott was willing to sign any for panthers player. are not going to sign cam newton. So yeah i mean it's such a fascinating situation like just like a reminder of how quickly things can change. I mean this was a guy who wasn't mvp. It's five years ago now. Right six days six years ago. The two thousand fifteen season twenty fifteen season. I mean a guy who was still you know an mvp candidate in the first half of the twentieth eighteen season as twenty nine year. Old things have gone south quickly It has been a really fascinating last couple years for cam newton and for his various spots and when it comes to the patriots now being with mack jones asked the starter. Like what do you think they're ceiling. I know i talked with robert. Mays on athletic football show. I wanna get your side of this like do you think the patriots have the upside to win the division in addition with you know with teams where bills were thirteen and three of the dolphins for ten six. What is looking like a pretty tough. Afc division has changed dramatically since the last time that we were kind of really evaluating the patriots role in it. I mean what. Have a underrated. Parts of the tom brady patriots dynasty. Was how terrible the rest of the afc east was for most of that time. And i don't think that's the case right now you know i. I think that there is a gap between them and the bills. And i think it's a substantial gap. The the dolphins are such like a high variance team to me like. I think you can make a lot of cases for why they should be good but you very easily could make the arguments of why it would all fall apart mostly on the offensive line and then everything falls apart from there so i could very much see the patriots being in that middle middle tier. Maybe there the second best team in. Afc east maybe. You know the playoff field bigger now. Maybe their team that if mack jones kind of performs at the top end of his potential and johnny smith is legit player Hunter henry is able to stay the stay healthy and aguilar consistently stretches the field where they actually have legit receiving options that they haven't had in the last several years. You could make that case of saying okay. Maybe this is a ten win type team. I think they're doing a lot of interesting things defensively. Maybe they're they're in a good that they're in a good position now that mack jones despite being a rookie probably isn't gonna drive this off the rails that i think maybe you can kind of see what this offense is going to look like. We're a lot of questions last year. About what exactly the passing game was gonna look like with cam newton. We knew he was going to run in short yardage But the receiving options were terrible. And you say okay. While the the skill position players are better. the offensive line is pretty good The running back group is pretty deep. I wouldn't trust them from a fantasy perspective at all when it comes to the running back group but yeah like are they going to do a lot of. Rpo is going to be a lot of play. Action is going to be a lot of like kind of short intermediate passing game You know i'm excited to watch it. I think it's going to be really really interesting. Yeah i'm in you know. Certainly last year's offense was very unique. A big departure. I think for the patriots and still some core concepts there were still some of the core passing causes and they're so much that offense last year especially early in the season and and in short yardage was cam as a runner and back jones. Whatever strikes back jones has that is not what back jones does well so I will be very intrigued. I mean this is. This is the long-term guy. This is the guy replacing. Tom brady in the big picture. So we get that game pretty soon. That'll be pretty exciting and five four five patriots bucks. Yeah it's it's more But it's in foxborough i I imagined the television networks are going to be that one is going to be on television. I don't think they're going to have that one on like tape delay. You mentioned the broncos. Let's get to the denver broncos because this closely living in the denver area like you said you just saw them in the preseason and the decision that vic fangio has made is to give his starting job at quarterback to teddy bridgewater over former second round pick drew lock so linzie in terms of the offense will get to bridgewater in a second. But do you think the broncos are making this decision and attempting to stick with it for the vast majority of the season or do you think this is going to be a job where teddy bridgewater has to start but it's more of that kind of continually change hands as the season goes on. I hope this isn't a yoyo situation. If it is kind of a situation like we saw with the dolphins last year where it was almost like they were using ryan fitzpatrick as a relief pitcher at times. I think that means that things have gone. Very poorly I don't think this is the long term. Like twenty twenty two twenty twenty three situation. I think the broncos are very much barring some sort of super bowl type run. Which i think is a little unrealistic. I think they will be back in the quarterback market next offseason. Whether that's free. Agency trades aaron rodgers or draft depending on exactly where it is that. They're picking so. I think they're gonna be back having this these conversations next offseason. I feel sorry for all. The people have denver. That we'll have to sit there another quarterback competition next next offseason next august. But yeah i mean i think they want they want to be the guy now. You know the they drug this out all of training camp. I mean really into the third week of the preseason to really figure out who was going to be there guy and they want they want it to be teddy. They they like his temperament for the roster that they have vic fangio obviously very much likes that. He's that the bridgewater is sufficient in safe. He's the lower risk quarterback I guess my question in all of this is going to be at. You know if if teddy is constantly doing a lot of like dinking dunking and taking the short safe completions. Is that going to be enough to score a lot of flights. Is that going to. How is that going to raise your ceiling. Are you going to is. You're winning formula going to be hoping that you can win games. You know twenty to seventeen. And i just don't know how realistic that is in a division where you're going to be playing patrick mahomes twice a year. You're going to be playing the chargers a couple times a year. The raiders can score in bunches. You know. I think they're going to give up a lot of points as well. The raiders are but they can score a lot. So i i just don't know if that's kind the necessarily the winning formula especially when you have is good offensive talent as they really have amassed this year especially now that cortlandt thought sutton is healthy and Noah fanton jerry. Judy looked ridiculous through training camp in his preseason action so you have some explosive dynamic skill position players is teddy bridgewater going to be. The guy can maximize their talents. I think that's a very valid question..

"Now here's what jones talking about the various quarterback battles that had been thought wage. Now one around the nfl all right joining me now here as promised not only a friend of mine. Not only in excellent nfl writer. Not only a regular podcast or with my former colleague robert mays over at the football show. Also i would venture to say possibly the budding matriarch of a podcast dynasty to come is that fair to say linda jones. We'll say i mean season two of my daughters. nfl pick. Podcast will be coming soon. She is now five and she went to her first. Nfl game last week she. I took her to broncos rams preseason game where she got to end up scouting of the broncos starters and the rams like fourth stringers is ready. She got to see both. The approaches towards the preseason broncos playing people take preseason the rams i think show mcvay would have had a heart attack if matthew stafford even come close to stepping on the football field yet and she she also got to meet nina kinds another famous podcast for our friends in colleague so that was that was a highlight so yes. We're we're really excited about a season. Two of the picks todd cast and see. Maybe she does. She does yard. I don't wanna say that she can do better. Because i think she did pretty well for four year old last year. But i'm going to start tracking. Make sure i have her overall win. Loss record seems to me. People might be like a four year old podcast or what. What could i possibly learn from a four year old. Who your four year old. At the time for year old daughter lena picked to win the super bowl last year she picks the buccaneers and who did a professional nfl writer podcast. Bill barnwell picked to win the super bowl last year. I'm guessing it's probably the same i did. We don't really need to talk about it. Yeah i wouldn't i wouldn't. I wouldn't rule out lena. Having a better record than perhaps me we both had to make picks for the nfl season. But we're gonna talk about a different sort of competition not a podcast in competition But a different sort of maybe a young star rising through the ranks in many places. We're gonna talk about the quarterback competitions that have been settled around the nfl in the last week or two. there's definitely a bunch of really interesting situations occurring. We've had some recent news. Of course we're going to get to in a second some situations that i would say are infuriating when it comes to the logic being thrown about for a team or two here. But let's start. Lindsey the most recent news which was earlier this week the patriots not just giving their starting job to mack jones but flat out cutting cam newton The former mvp their starter from twenty twenty Without even trying to trade him reportedly so let's start there. I mean were you surprised. Number one to see mack jones when the job and number two to see cam newton off the roster even before this season started. Yeah i think the latter is the more surprising little I think the way that the preseason was progressing especially kind of the final week of that competition the days in which was unable to participate because of his misunderstanding about the covert protocols. I think you could kind of see the situation building where mack jones could win this job and it wasn't going to be kind of a flukey thing where he was actually outperforming cam. Newton on a daily basis at training camp In the in the preseason game so i think you could see that coming and make. You could have made that argument two or three weeks ago. It was still surprising to see cam. Newton has been flat out released. Because it's still cam newton right it. It's surprising to see a big name like that. Come across a come across the wire the transaction report You know. I guess it makes sense in that. He's made it fairly clear. I think But he doesn't want to be a backup quarterback he might not be the best backup quarterback systematically or what the patriots are going to do now with jones's their starter. You know having. Brian hoyer as the backup might fit better because you don't have to different schemes and skill sets in terms of what your offense looks like so i guess that side though as it was still a little bit more surprising to just see to see him flat out getting cut. And it's going to be really interesting to see what comes next for cam newton if he if he's able to land a job somewhere else the season if he wants to of. Because i don't really see a clear path to him being a starting quarterback certainly and then even a place that makes sense as like. Oh yes he's going to wanna go there. This team is gonna want them to be him to be their backup. Yeah i mean. That's the tough part is going to be. Where do you think he might end up as a backup. Because i mean the only place. I think you could really credibly say he might have a shot at being starter in the short term would be houston. And that's just out of just. There's nothing there. I mean to shawn watson of course You know not playing as he's being investigated for dozens of sexual assault allegations. Tyrod taylor going to be the starter there. It seems like but that's not.

I ended up by dishing for them after either after he left her after karen left and i think it was after karen left and they like me a lot but i didn't get in somebody else and then a year later they call me and they said we decided not to me audition again or they they said we need you to come on tour with us and i said i can't do it so they asked me to addition again and i did and i ended up getting gig and i ended up. I was in the band for five years. I recorded several albums. Ep singles with them. A lot of touring and there was pretty life changing. I asked robert. If there's anything that i should ask you about anything in particular and he had two things. He said that you were incredibly persistent in your auditions for bantu assisance and ask her how she ended up with a one of a kind general. Sc three to see one conversion. Well i don't remember being particularly persistent. Maybe call was like you all need to be in the van but what happened. Is that when. I went for the addition. He wanted me to play a muted guitar. And i'd never done it before. So i went home and i practice it and i i you know i learned how to do it. Obviously it's on point. I just love the band. And i wanted to go on tour. I wanted to be in bad susan's you know. It was just like you know where it was working at the time i think. Oh i don't want the new york. Roadrunners club knows a couple years after that. So maybe the learning annex may be some. I'd on how. We all know the doctor where i was working at the time. Oh yeah. I have to on tour for six weeks happy about that but it was just. It was hard. This was being in europe. Six weeks with people. You don't really know before cell phones before computers before kinko's once kinko's open navy. That was the ninety three tour. It made it so much easier because there was consistency. Okay before that it was like. Let's hope that there's a copy shop because we have to make flyers. We sent postcards. We have to do this that and the other thing you know it was really old school. Justin as we toured with me cons. Oh cool yes that was one of the maybe the first tour because we did a shell one side of the band. We didn't we recorded. And we didn't play and i was like. Are we really going to go onto my really and the and then and then finally robert call me. And he's like you know we're gonna do a show in connecticut and they were going to do a show with me cons tramps and we're gonna go to tour so i was like okay. I was really happy. It was real. Yeah the tour. And can i mean the show on genetic. It was funny because we ran out of gas on the way back. Oh really we had to gas tanks. 'cause it was a big van. Yeah nobody knew that so. I ended up in a tax. Get three in the morning. Oh jeez anyway. The second show the me cons and i had to go to work that morning and i was so nervous. I couldn't even hold the pencil. i'm like how am i going to do this. Show tonight actually even gonna hold the pay. How am i gonna play. I was so nervous. And then four. Four o'clock you have to do the slash and i went over to the club and it was just amazing because it was sold out. This was the second show. I was playing with a band. Susan's coms were fantastic. It was. I felt really fortunate for the bands that a lot of the bam's that he toured with were pretty tough. Quality act sets awesome. I wish i'd never got a chance to see benefit seasons live and i'm so annoyed that i i caught onto late facing the videos on youtube. There's one from germany. i think i seen i. I may have seen that one. I think robert may have directed me to that one. I did see the one watching the one today of guys in the studio during that was that was really cool to watch it because i. I'm so busy o million music project so it's great it's is will watch it. That's good yeah. I'd rather you were working in watching youtube. But it's really cool it's got a heck of dandruff susan's nostalgia our this Listen to some songs. And i just thought about being on tour with them recording with them and you know it was really exciting standing next to robert pauses. It's hard but it was a phone was just like he just. I've never spent so much time. Getting my sound. In fact on on those shows i got my sam directly through the app. I think with a noise reduction unit. That's all i tune. In.
"robert mays" Discussed on You Better You Bet
"Yeah anything else. Anything else going on there. I don't know what apps you're into like instagram to twitter's unfortunately probably still up there. It's more like a sick pleasure at this point. I guess remember when you had in your twitter bio like spending spending no time on twitter these days now now you tweak the most out of everyone on the show now spending lots of time on twitter has actually no sports on night makes a little tough all right so again. Our number two. If you better you bet. We've got the power hour coming up. Final hour of the show all our beds for tonight major league baseball bed q. Five-star plays in the five days of laki continue as kansas. Got a double digit underdog. He likes this weekend in college. Football absolutely can't wait for that or three days or coming in momentarily continuing with the los angeles chargers. And the las vegas raiders in the afc west right now. We are pleased to welcome into you. Better you bet one of our absolute favorite guests when it comes to talking all things national football league and that is the great robert mays from the athletic does a great job hosting the athletics. Nfl podcast writer for the athletic on twitter at robert mays. Robert welcome back to you better. You bet we love to have you nick pastas cam barclay bet q. L. on this tuesday. How are you how you guys are you guys doing. We're doing pretty good rubber. We just did a segment. We've been trying to preview about two or three teams per day on the show leading into the start of the season. I know you guys on the athletic. Nfl potter doing a lot of in previews and stuff as well. So a lot of afc west today is kind of been the theme so we just did the chiefs going to do. The chargers raiders coming up to the broncos yesterday. Why don't we just start with kansas city. And then we can. We can kind of get your thoughts on the breaking news that we have but just did a lot of chiefs discussion dick. And i were trying to figure out you know where where where are the the chinks in the armor right whereas whereas the opportunity for candidates to slip compared to the past three years is this as rock-solid of a team as we've seen with whatever thirty forty wins the last three seasons any expectation for you this year that the chiefs could could be slightly down or what are your expectations for them. Offensively it's hard to see that because the one thing that could torpedo this team like we saw last year offense one injuries offensive line issues and their to keep it pretty much every single position. They're starting on me. Their backup offensive line is pretty much starting off the wine from the super bowl so every single guys been swapped out for an upgrade. It pretty much every single position. So they've insulated themselves from that problem and that's clearly intentional. I would almost promise you that. Andy reid and names the gm's name which escaping me right. Now i'm so tired redeyebeets. That'd be.
"robert mays" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"I have the football team in the patriot. Game on the back chase young just destroys people absolutely destroys people. I heard someone say that rivera told them might have been mike silver. Who you like. Best friends with ron rivera. That two years ago would have been two years ago whenever the chase young draft. Yeah because it was. They had borough and chase young in a completely different category than everyone else now. Like looking back at chase. Young is an elite defensive player. They're probably going to be a point in time in his career for multiple years where he might be viewed as the best player in the leak in like three or four years but rivera had a do over. He would take justin harvard like. That's the move. Because brian has patrick's now they're starter and i like ryan fitzpatrick and we'll dive into him right now so i i'm not breaking down preseason games so if it's just not what i'm going to be doing but i did see that and it was cool. Is that ryan fitzpatrick robert. Mays of the athletic talk to him and he told him the last year when brian flores told him they were going to tour he laughed. He thought it was a joke. Like he legitimately thought floors was messing with them. Floors was dead serious and he was floored. Now if you take a step back at the end of the day like ryan he was the fifth overall. Pick your ryan fitzpatrick. You're not like. I dunno a meaning. Brother philip rivers or something you're ryan fitzpatrick. But he's he was playing a high level football and they were winning. So i do understand. I do imagine. My guess is floors. Isabella chick guy probably would have just kept trying to win with ryan fitzpatrick and clearly did because once they went to to where they kept yanking him out of games going to fit patrick and it actually want him. A game against the raiders. My guess is how it went down. I have no inside sources on this. I bet it was the owner. Because i would imagine that the owner.
"robert mays" Discussed on The Lead
"While robert. We also wanted to spend a few minutes looking at some of the worst offseason moves or at least some of the most widely questioned. Now we already mentioned the falcons trading way. Julio jones but before that they made a move that drew some criticism when they restructured. Matt ryan's massive contract. Net ryan is good but not great anymore The three years of losing really says a lot to me at the start with the team in terms a win loss Four and twelve seven and eight seven and nine that rhyme that looks like regression in terms of whatever talents you possess is selling instead of drafting. A new franchise quarterback just in fields to eventually take over for ryan. The falcons have basically doubled down on the thirty six year old quarterback. What was your reaction to that decision. I think initially i thought. Oh this means they're really going for it. This means they're really trying to get the most out of this season. Keep open their window. Go get a guy like kyle pits in. We'll see if they just maximize this offense. But i think if you look at it a little bit deeper. It was almost necessary. Think about matt riots. Capital is the highest league cameras in the forty million somewhere range. Now it's down at twenty six million and they still only have nine million dollars cap space. And that's after trading. Julio jones so at a certain point it was just a financially required move they needed to do. In order to feel the fifty three man roster goes year. The falcons over the last couple seasons patmos metro really pushed it under the red hat to the cap and beyond. They're trying to get the most they could out of that core and eventually the bill comes due and it came in a year where the cat fell more than any team could have possibly imagine. So i understand. It's not ideal. You're tied to matt ryan for probably a couple more years. If you move on from him it's going to be really really pricey but at a certain point terry five. No arthur smith. That new regime had to do something to make his team financially viable in twenty twenty one. Well you talk to the falcons. Gm terry fought knowing your podcast. The athletic football show recently. What did he have to say about. All of this and came talked about the idea of balancing the president of future. I know some people outside look name would say hey. You should strip it down completely. Go through a whole rebuild. But if you know much about myself from where i'm from or much about author smith in his mindset rebuilding is not that just doesn't make any sense to any of. You're not going to tell me how you can't just say we're gonna tear it down and you can't just say we're gonna try to go forward as hard as we can because i definitely like to think in those terms either. Tear it down or you're going for it. And that's why terry no has that job. He doesn't have to think about it in those absolutes and they walked into a very difficult situation. And i don't think there was going to be any solution that put this team in the best position both now and five years from now they really add to juggle those two timelines. Those two realities. And i am not envious of everything that had to go into those decisions. Well the annual leader in head-scratching off season moves. These days may just be the las vegas raiders. Now it's almost hard to pick. Just one perplexing raiders decision. But is there a raiders. Move in particular that you find yourself questioning the most. I mean it's not worn transaction. I think it's just the overall vision for how they're trying to build this thing if they move on from their best offensive. Why may a veteran in rodney hudson. The completely retool that offensive line what. The heck of the raiders billing. I feel terrible for derek carr. This offensive line used me the best in the business. They're getting rid of every what they save money but then they spent some of that money on kenyan drake when they drafted josh jacobs in the first round it. Just i don't understand the vision. And i would love to have someone from that organization. Explain it to me but it really does feel like every off season. We have this rash of signings from the raiders. They don't get better in the next offseason they blow it up there's another rash of sightings and they're just on this hamster wheel of mediocrity and. I don't know what the pathway out of is going to be. Well i'm about to ask about offensive line with this next question because my team the pittsburgh steelers is coming off a twelve and four season and they're going to try to run it back one more time with thirty nine year old ben rothlisberger but they recently released all pro guard. David decastro of them. He made the proble every season since twenty fifteen and was named first team all pro twice. Nfl network's ian rapoport says the move the steelers around eight point seven five million dollars now the only have one returning starter on the online chat. Kuma so how worried should i be an how worried should other steeler fans be about this offensive line and its ability to protect big ben. I think you should be worried. I think there are a lot of question marks. And it's a lot of youth thought of unproven players. I mean you're ben really hard on a guy like tendered green who they drafted in the third round trade turner. Who's really struggled to stay healthy over. The last couple of years kevin dotson. They're left guard is a very promising young player but not one promising. Fourth-round guard doesn't offensive. Line make i just. It's hard for me to imagine a world where this steelers offense is considerably better than the one we saw last year. And i. it's really hard to imagine. Why their defense would be better. They've lost talent. I mean that's what happens when you have to start paying. People in the cap goes down. This is another team. That's really up against it when it comes to the twenty twenty one tap if they had to restructure this burgers deal of as a lot of expensive veterans on the defensive side of the ball so it really does seem to me like they're playing out the string at. They're going to step into a different era next year if rothlisburger does von. But i think they're going to be a solid team. They're going to be a team. Nobody likes playing against. But i think that there time as potential title contenders as probably passed. You mean we're about to see the browns. The afc north champions browser. I i think the ravens are better than the current version of the steelers. So you get. It's been a nice run pittsburgh. We'll finally robber. We wanted to ask you about the defending super bowl champions tampa bay buccaneers who are notably bringing back all twenty two starters from their championship team so from your vantage point. Is that a good move. A bad move. Maybe some of both. They did a really good job of keeping that core together doing what they need in order to kick the can down the road a little bit and the way they added in the draft if he makes sense drafting a backup quarterback in the second round. Maybe the best way to get the most out of your window. But go and get your guy joe tryout in the first round to give them to pass rushing depth desperately-needed last year. I think makes thomas sense and then drafting offense in the third round to give them some depth there. because that's one position where just ask the chiefs. If you have a rash of injuries there it can derail your sees so. I completely understand why they wanted to keep with the status quo because has a lot of other teams in the nfl disturbed talent because of finances and weird cap post pandemic. The buck said we're gonna keep this entire roster together and i think you definitively makes them the favorite in the city. Thank you so much for breaking this down for us. Robert and i am totally going to head to my nearest barbecue establishment to find something not quite as good as what you had earlier very could serve as an inspiration you can follow robert mays coverage of the nfl and hear him on the athletic football show at the athletic dot com from.
"robert mays" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"What is your overall perspective on where they're at and you're surprised level of it is, if you're surprised at all that they remain status quo. At the end of the year where they at your opinion with their coaching staff of the front office and the players, they're running in place. And that's exactly what they're doing, and that's exactly what they're going to be doing. You can move all the pieces and all the deck chairs on the Titanic around as much as you want to, But I'm not sure you're gonna end up going anywhere. And the idea that they would make this big play for a quarterback this off season and we've heard that kind of language and narrative around their search at that position, you know? Does anybody really have hope that if they give up a ton of assets for A quarterback. That's not like a truly great one. That is going to do much for them. I don't really think so. I've just seems like this team is kind of stuck in the muck. And they're on this treadmill of mediocrity that you don't want to be on. And sometimes to get out of that used to throw the treadmill in the garbage. It's not about tweaking it in these little tiny waves. Sometimes you gotta take a sledgehammer to it and start over and it just feels like that's where they need to be. And I understand that's difficult. That's a hard road to follow, and it's something that requires some fortitude as a franchise. But look what's happening in Detroit right now. I have no idea that's gonna work, but them understanding we need to do something drastic. Change where we are changed our status throughout the league. They've done it. They're going to endure that really difficult path and start over and the bears just not willing to do that. And I think that if you don't if you're not willing to endure the hardships, you're not going to get to where you want to go. Robert May is joining us from the athletic. Are you then doing everything you can for Watson, and if you don't have enough? Who are you then going for of these quarterbacks? It's a great question, because I don't know who's gonna be available, and that's one of the biggest mysteries of this entire thing. Eyes. Jimmy Garoppolo, one of the only guys is there a car now available. I don't know how the quarterback movement elsewhere is going to dictate that I would trade a lot for this young Watson. Because I don't know with the prices where you're better off with the picks than you were with Shawn Watch, and it really does feel like if he's willing to sit out if he's willing to lose money that the Texans will lose leverage pretty quickly and that it might be a better best interest to move on if they're not operating from a position of strength. And you can get him for three first round picks. I think that's worth it for a lot of franchises. It is different calculus for the Bears. For this reason, though, they don't have any young, ascending talent on that team. For the most part. Because of the way they treated their draft capital. So the coffers already pretty bare there, And if you're gonna keep trading away, those high picks is the way they have. Before that. It's gonna be really difficult to surround him with any talent, so They're stuck between a rock and a hard place. There's really no good answer here. But it does feel like there's an inevitable ending of this story when they end up with the guy who was an upgrade from what they have. But still not a guy that can lift them out of this kind of what that they've fallen into. Well, the one that you like more than another. Do you like their car? More than others? Would you take a chance on When's like If you were paste in his shoes? What would you do? Think Derek Carr has played the best. Of the quarterbacks who are currently semi available. I think their car the better quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. I think their car has been a better quarterback Ben Carson wants especially lately. You know, you look at the results they've had in Oakland in Las Vegas. Over the past two years. They've been a top 10 offense, according to a lot of metrics. I think that office is well designed I think it has underrated talent up front. And a guy like Darren Waller has been really good. So I'm not sure that you could drop their car into the bear situation and get similar results. But when you're thinking about the crop of quarterbacks that might be available, he has got it the best offenses. In recent memory of that group. There's no chance Mitch comes back in your opinion, correct. And if no? Where do you expect the Bears Former starting quarterback to end up Great question. I honestly haven't asked many people what they think of him. It hasn't been one of the first things on my mind. Don't talk to people around the league about stuff, but I honestly joke about that, but I'm curious. It just is never something that comes up, but it will be a discussion that I have with people as we get towards the spring it just again. It's so far down the priority list. I am kind of fascinated by that idea that because You look at guys in the NFL that typically stick as backup quarterbacks, which I assumed he would have to be a guy like Blake Bortles is looking for work this year. He didn't have a job. Despite being a former number five former top five pick and those guys are typically people you want in the building. As a way to help your starting quarterback there. Guys that are cerebral. The guys have stuck around for a really long time. I mean that shot was in the league last year. And you think about this staying power to the gala Josh McCown has had. I think if you talk to people in Cleveland, bringing in case Keenum this year was a really important thing for Baker Mayfield, So I think a lot of teams are going that thing about Chase Daniels entire career. A lot of guys like that are the other quarterback in the room right now, Mr Tudeski is not that so I'll be really curious How many franchises around the NFL look at him as a worthwhile investment about the upside when you consider the way and the direction a lot of teams have gone a backup quarterback here over the last few years. Right. A couple of random questions here. Give me the I know you haven't dove in. But who are you predicting the win and give me a new show to be watching or an old show that I should circle back to I'll have the jeweler watch freaks and geeks when it was on No, I did not have heard a lot about it. But that's that's a while ago, isn't it? It was. It was aired in 2000. It just got too who last week. Because for years it has been off of streaming platforms because it uh, the music was hard t o clear. They use so much like high quality popular music that they had issues getting the rights to it, paying for it, but it's back on who? My girlfriend. I started watching again last week, and it's just so funny to see guys like That the world and Jason Segal James Franco, all those guys back when they were 17 18 years old. It has a lot of heart and it's well done. It's been a really nice bit of like television comfort food for us here in the last week or so. All right. Good. Good. What about the score? What do you like in the game? Right. The Chiefs. I just think that There's so few good answers to what you want to do them defensively, right..
Supreme Court throws out Louisiana abortion restrictions
"Been talking to Stephen Black professor at the University of Texas Law School about the decision today We're a divided Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that opponents said would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts provided the crucial vote during the court's liberal justices in a 5 to 4 majority. So Justice Stephen Breyer, who also wrote the majority opinion in the Texas Case, wrote the majority opinion here did he reiterated his reasoning in the Texas case, or did he just follow precedent? No American. I think a lot of the plurality of him by the prior was very much not just reiterating what he wrote for the majority four years ago in the home of health case, but also do not carefully trying to explain why that decision for your so should control the case. Why the Louisiana line is not in any material way. Actually, or legally different fromthe law that the court threw out in Texas four years ago. If I can, you know for Brier, the queue is to show why these cases are not the similar And you know, I don't get you. Justice. Roberts actually agreed with that. I think you just agreed with the endorsement of the analysis from the earlier decision on hold and help if that's why he felt obliged and compelled to write separately. What was the thread running through the dissenting opinions? What's interesting about this case is, you know if you read the sentinel opinions that actually very little tune about roar, Casey and a whole lot about standing, you know, I think for the defenders, the ground they were hoping in this case would be resolved on Was that the abortion providers June Medical Services, etcetera weren't proper parties. The challenge Louisiana long the first place that would have allowed the court sidestep a major ruling on the stuff into scope of the right to pursue a pre viability abortion. But of course, there were consequences all his own indignant much harder for a court to hear these kinds of pieces going forward, so No, I think for the dissenters for justice Promise Justice Alito. The quarters from Kavanaugh know there at least stated opposition here with principally to the court allow in this case to reach America at all. I suspect June that that no one will be surprised if no. Were those marriage to be properly before them. They just hostile to them that know the descent maybe focus on stand them, but I think it's not hard to imagine that there are objections on the merits behind them as well. So during his confirmation hearings, Justice Cavanaugh was questioned again and again on Roe v. Wade, and he said he would follow precedent. Did he veer from that in this decision? I don't think so. I mean, just, Kavanaugh wrote only a very short to page dissent, although he joined a large chunk of just much longer defense. You know, I think Kavanaugh is a little bit cagey and careful on exactly that point. Doesn't say a lot about roar. Casey. He really put it on the procedural question of whether these planets had standin on why he thinks that matter should have been read ended the trial court traditional back finding on that question. But, you know, I think folks are not gonna have trouble reason. If you imagine this is You know, suitable and without necessarily saying that he's probably a reliable vote for the conservatives in a case where the merits of an abortion restriction really aren't properly before the court. You know, I don't think it's directly inconsistent with anything, he said during the confirmation process, But Matt it certainly doesn't come running like wall. We've heard a lot about Justice Roberts Justice Gorsuch Has Cavanaugh been a reliable conservative vote during his first term here, I think, for the most part, I mean, I think there's one or two paces June where You know he's been on the other side. We're siding with the progressive on Ly one that comes to mind when you was the deciding vote on. It wasn't an especially major contention case that without an antitrust case You know, I think he's probably been in some respects more reliable in a smaller data set as a conservative vote than justice. Gorsuch has been, obviously, of course, it's you know, it's fresh off of the Majority opinion he wrote in the LGBT discrimination case, You know, so I think I think it's pretty clear that injustice. Cavanaugh, the conservative, got what they were hoping for. Um Whether that hold across the larger data set, we'll see. But you know, I also think it's also a sign of the times. June. You know, we had a 30 year period We had a Supreme Court with No. Two very obvious swing. That justice is Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, where you could see these pretty profound shift in majorities from one case to the next. That's not where we are. Now we have a solid conservative majority and results, like the abortion case, don't change that. I think they just show that there are at least some elements that even the solid conservative majority won't transgress. This was the third time in two weeks that Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives in a blockbuster opinion. Is he now the next Justice Kennedy Oh, I think it's been clear June since Justice Cabin always confirmed to the Supreme Court that in most, not all but most of the high profile, divisive partisan No social and contentious cases before the Supreme Court. The departure of death of Kennedy puts to Justice Robert from the middle, and I think, you know we're seeing that this term in spades. It's not just his decisive vote today in the Louisiana abortion paid not just his majority opinion in the doc a case you know that he also joined Justice Gorsuch. In the LGBT discrimination case, So you know they're going to be out liars where it's not the chief Cruz the swing vote, But I think you know in the high profile cases more often than not, yes, where there's a 5 to 4 majority, and it's No for the conservatives who sent him the the one who will have been personally to switch sides with the chief justice John, I don't think that's because anything about the chief has changed. I think that because No. The court itself has changed. And because the kind of dispute the court is taken are increasingly grounds new towards ones where any of those five justices were going. Be disinclined Tio. Ride with the quote unquote conservative position. It's going to be John Roberts. Using this opinion and looking forward at some of the other opinions that are coming out, especially the decision on the subpoenas for Trump's financial records. Does this tell us anything about how justice Roberts may vote on that? I really don't think so. You know, I don't think that this is any kind of broader shift or pattern in how the chief justice instead of his job, you know, I think he's he's able to take that from cases differently. I mean, you know, right after we got the abortion opinion this morning, we got the chief justice's majority opinion. And that's the Buchanans, which was a very classically conservative separation of powers. Hold them from him. So I don't think we should read anything broader into his vote in these cases, other than the reality that he is now the Longboat And, you know, do not could show up again as early as you know the cases where they were coming down on Tuesday or the rest of this week or next week. You know, I don't think this is the last time this term that the chief going to be the swing vote, But I also don't think that you know the fact that he's this one wrote in some cases allows us to predict in which cases It most likely

John Roberts may be the new swing vote on the US Supreme Court
"You know, we were talking about John Roberts in how he doesn't seem to be turning out. His chief Justice of the United States Supreme court John Roberts. Yeah. That guy. He's lurched left hasn't. He has. And you don't want to be able to identify your supreme court justices that way. No, I think I think I know what's at work here though. Shannon bream on FOX did a report on this yesterday. And I'm listening to the report, and I'm thinking to myself, I have a little theory on this. I'll share the theory as soon as we hear this report on a range of hot button issues. John Roberts in recent weeks decided with his four more liberal colleagues, including a February vote to block enforcement of a restrictive Louisiana law on abortion clinic access just last week. He ruled four a death row inmate over his right leading colleagues objections. It's the latest sign. The sixty four year old Roberts is hitting the pause button on the expected conservative full court press ushered in by President Trump. After nominating justices. Neal Gorsuch, and Brad Kavanagh. This is an incremental est minimalist strategy, whatever you're hoping for or fearing, and whatever your your preferred area of law might be this court is not gonna move with giant steps. Since November the chiefs vote in separate pending appeals prove decisive a half dozen times on issues like immigration asylum and transgenders in the military while these votes do not yet go to the merits of the larger issues. They signal Roberts shaky place in the courts middle as the so-called swing Justice. And unofficial title. He inherited for now when Anthony Kennedy retired. See I think that's what he's doing is. I think he wants to be a first of all I think he's an anti Trumper never-trumper. So I think with Justice Kennedy stepping down. I think he sees himself is the rational reasonable person in the middle who can become that person that kind of holds that court from going way too conservative. I think that's where he's at mentally. And I think it has everything to do with President Trump. And his feelings about person and Trump and the two appointments to the person it's made to the supreme court. Well with Justice Ginsburg. In ill health for the most part and aging. There's also this. I mean, the fact of the left going crazy, maybe it's more of a stability thing. So we don't have to go through another dog and pony show. Like, we did with Justice Cavanaugh. I don't know. I just think that for whatever reason he's calmed down the Uber. Uber's now maybe on the left is a, hey, look just chill. I'm here. Okay. I'm going to keep things stable that may be that may be part of it. I mean, I don't know. I think you just seasons office new man in the
The Dolphins' Hook and Lateral: Is it the future of football?
"Dolphins. Six ninety nine touchdown was the longest touchdown with no time left to win a game in the Super Bowl era. That's good. Okay. Is the hook and lateral. The future of football Robert Mays show twice today. Man, more teams should do it. It won one game and had the opportunity to win another. But the Steelers when forget your Chris Boswell compensate went full Steelers. Yeah. I kind of think that one of the things I've talked about when when people have asked you what the next step in football is I actually think it's kind of it's not hooking laterals. It's sort of multiple people having the ball in the backfield. And then one of them throwing almost sort of like what the saints are doing a little bit with three quarterbacks. I if you have a crappy quarterback, it's better to have three of them and just have a little Mr. action there. Princeton does that with on those option plays, and they'll actually hand it to the guy that's the option runner, and he's also a quarterback's throw it, right? But apparently when I tweeted about the hook 'em out bit. Some people say the guy coach calorie the guy who doesn't punt who's famous for not punting. His thing is hook him are actually the next step in football. And actually, I had a role a thing as far as you're going to say, it's the same thing. Yeah. I've never I've never used that phrase hook and lateral before the Wikipedia says hook and lateral sometimes referred to as hook and ladder. But it's called hook and lateral. The Wikipedia I've never said hook and lateral in my life. It's a regional thing. It's like pop verse coke there you go. I just said, you you say, and you firmly believe that was the that was the term. I was like, okay. Well. I wasn't going to come in on shore. Good for you, buddy. I do any research. I appreciate that. I've always had hooking ladder. Maybe that's just the varsity blues influencing the way, I talk about football. Well, it's all. It was it was nuts. I mean, the play was insane. It was absolutely crazy. I even watch in real time. It was too hard to process. I mean, you have gronkowski back there. I guess to prevent a hill. Mary. And then the last thing you want with the guy who can't move that. Well, being your last line of defense happens. Right. So rob gronkowski is not the guy who went back there. That's so he's not Earl Thomas, I think we learned that today or. Or like Julio's defended those plays pretty pretty well in the past. Knocking those Johnson Calvin John yet. Yeah. Calvin Johnson has been a great great last play guy. But they knew they knew it was going to be a hook out excuse me, hook him out. All they said that the I mean you had to it would've been a seventy seventy yards in the air is capable for half the quarterback. Just not Ryan tannehill. Heff the quarterbacks might be strong. But yeah, I mean, I bet I bet a lot of them could throw seventy yards in the air.
