The Texans Lose Again, Texans keeping Crennel for 2021, does Harden want to go to Brooklyn, Leadership in sports

"Then we got sean. Puerto time french very this. Is the sean salisbury. Show fourth and goal. It's the quarterback city not gonna make it and it was byles jared the man of the moment already with a sack of four goals stop. And here's the other way the touchdown browns i the game. What's it with a pump. Fake and a pass caught top and farrell brow on a difficult catch because he had a teammate. Right in the neighborhood here is trump bone outside one out of bounds. And he does it. He may go all the way he does. Don't flags or down and cia. He ran out of bounds. Yard line. there you have it. That's the fox. Call a dick stockton on a game call yesterday longtime broadcaster one of the smartest and unselfish football players in the league. Nick chubb you were. There won't be five would have done that. I'm just telling you that is just. Here's why you do it. You say well there's only fifty seconds to go. What if all the sudden they returned the kick for a touchdown and watts. I know that's a big. What if and watson the a on side kick it and get it and he goes all kyle. Murray deandre hopkins. Oh yeah yeah. And then the trade him for a second round. Pick maybe after that. That's what they do right now. I just call somebody up. And say we'll give you the andre hopkins first second round pick. I'm sure everybody would jump at it because well. That wasn't a stupid move aside from the khalil mack. Somebody reminded me of yeah. It's the steel of the decade by by no doubt by by that hopkins straight and he continues to validate it. But that's neither here nor there. What is here is that. This team's not very smart a lot of times. I don't know why the i know. Romeo cornell decided to go for it. That's tim kelly's call bad. Call you get to sean. Deshaun watson you that to taste hiller cam newton between the tackles you get on the edge with watson. Give him a run pass option. If you're going to go for it three points to look nice though at that. Time fairbairn missed the defense again. Two hundred plus yards rushing today. I know the weather was bad. I mean between the two running backs i told you. This was the best one two punch always. Definitely that goods. Insa hold him down. Hold him down. The problem is we. Don't play thirty minute game now. We actually play sixty minute games and their season is i mean. I know that people. I guarantee that people that didn't wanna call in or listen is still thought to and six after watching indianapolis. Take tennessee that the texans had a legitimate shot on fat lady. Sing right there. There's what goes on. Here's a problem and it's everybody on the team everybody. They're talking about everybody. The defensive coordinator obviously doesn't have enough players or scheme wise to overcome the players. He has the players. Just don't make enough place and they are you like i've told you a million times. I can overcome some finesse. Mistakes being at a position or a dropped ball. I can eventually overcome that. Hope the teach drop ball out of a guy. I can't overcome just getting mauled. Can't either got. Here's why one game i can. It's the weeks that's exactly right and getting mauled to the standpoint too. I mean think the broken tackles the guy being ramped up than getting away which the constant and then when they are. There's a pile pile moved when a nine yard. You guys are trying to tackle them around his shoulder pads really and the guy's got the tree trunks for tree trunks for legs religious still grinding it. You can't fix in a season when it's like sticking a lightweight boxer at about a buck fifty bucks while they're even lighter than that the featherweight boxer to by five box tyson. It as best that. That's what it looks like. Every week is that they walk into a ring and get pummeled and physically manhandled. Were you know going in. We're lost by three. Yes i felt like. They didn't it though. Yeah but here's the typical. Texans start slow and that includes the quarterback. I promise you when they got the ball back when they were down ten. You know what i said. You taken down score. They will score a touchdown and tease you and keep it close and maybe get an opportunity on the last drive to win. Well obviously chubb. You know major hammered that one into the ground and smart football. Play that you don't let the shawn watson. Even get his hands on the football brilliant not unselfish it. A pity misers. What nick chubb is and what most football player should be the fact that he understood the game situation some nowhere to go out of bounds. They're told brian play half right. Don't don't you dare go in. Stay inbounds i mean. Don't you dare go out about slot. get down well. Not only is he. Take it to the house but instead of taking it literally the house decides i'll stop here. They have no timeouts kneel down twice ballgame over smart football heaps touchdown. Right things matt right. of course. it doesn't incentives. But i love that's brilliant understanding of and you know what they're six and three i think seven hundred sixty three right when he fourteen which they ended up losing seven and going into the game yesterday. They were the final playoff team going in and now they're tied with the baltimore ravens although the ravens beat them but that that's where it's at that divisions over by the way dealers are up three games. You catch them with seven games to go not going to happen. And they quite frankly still haven't played their best football offensively. Ben get done but it's not real pretty right now right and they still won and they hammered. You know what they do. Get after the quarterback on the other team the pittsburgh steelers. But it's just you know here's the set. The sad part you know going in there are certain things going into a game. The you still like. Well how's lamarcus play against new england in inclement weather which cam showing up. I mean you can go around the league jacksonville. Even hung in there against green bay right real good and so you know going into this and there's one thing i know for a fact it's going to happen every week. They're going to get destroyed in the run game. Was people trying to say oh. They were the first half. What change when it comes to run the football. I feel like people have lost this. It's wearing the defense down. Those three yards become five and then they get more opportunities to busting second coming eight nine yards left and right. Yeah somebody tell me again. How that first half mattered in the course of a sixty like. I said we don't quit. Play and thirty minutes and they just. They're either way to light in the ass. They don't know how to do it. All comes down. And they don't tackle. They're out of position. The other guys just better than they are right. Every team they'd lined up against outside of jacksonville has been better than them and they even run the football well and they're free. They gain the texans the last man just so it is. You guys can sit there. You can hold all the optimism. Can't 'cause i got zero in two thousand twenty. There is no optimism for two thousand twelve. Not optimism is get out healthy. I'll see in twenty twenty one in about fifteen or eighteen of gone. We've gotta make wholesale changes which leads to this so we can get into all we want you listen. They start way too slow. Which was bill. O'brien been here. And i'm not defending him. Because what i saw hopkins make the trade still makes me want to throw up in my mouth. Okay when i see him make the catch and thinking about trade in a lot of things. So i don't have any problem with the had to move on from bill. One hundred percent agree. But i can tell you this. What bill did was stupid. When romeo does it aggressive. When did just when you get the instant benefit of ryan gone where you're right when somebody else misses a tackle. It's bill's fault win. The player misses a tackle under romeo and the players fault. Here and and romeo's i get it nice guide and a hell of a football coach but bill is created that now that on fourth the two. Can you imagine what we'd be saying today if that was the play. Call brian. yes yes absolutely. Here's what's funny. It's tim kelly. Who made the call. But when bill. O'brien let's tim. Kelly make the call. They still blame that. Call on bill. O'brien so forth of tuna. Just everything they do. And i see this is dna problems. Now they're starts. Everything's creeped every single week every single week. They do not know how to come out of a locker room playing football last week. Was their first touchdown drive. This is only the fifth times then. Wrote down and then they can't keep it for three or four series. They believe that football right at that time. That's a max. Yes max supply and that's one half football one side of the ball usually so it. Just listen it's a bummer. Going in when you know that the guy that you're playing against every week kicks your fast physically about every week every week which leads me to this. Now see guys. Coincidences don't usually exist. Once in a while they do in life once in a while. Romeo cornell's in being considered according to rappaport and ian rapoport dialed and he's our guest on wednesday. We'll talk to him about it about the romeo cornell stuff seriously considered for the head coaching job next year and jack easterby is now and that's part of it i read as well easterby also trying to align himself in position to be the full time you go ahead and do all these things you go ahead and see what that stadium. You actually see that stadium. Be empty overdue. Yeah so when you listen to jamie roots the president of the team the other day saying what he said basically telling you that they're only worried about making money and they normally do they normally do so. I'm just telling you. I love romeo cornell. He cannot be the head coach moving on and if some of these decisions don't tell you that it's almost to the point where romeo's trying to go completely different than bill to the point of. We're going to be no matter what we're going to go. We're going to do aggressive when needed not aggressive win needed and listen. I romeo cornell hall of fame defensive coordinator. I do but it's time to move forward and i have not listened if i thought romeo cornell is the best guy i don't care that he's in his seventies i. It doesn't bother as being head coach. Right right he just not this date. Now it's time and what they're going to do if they do that. They're going to pass on a bunch of young studs or middle or older. Says i don't get that. Are that are worthy of this more deserving of points this position that's he's been been there done that and it makes me wonder if there's somebody that they're easterby once that has a. That's very large this season. That may be not enlarge next season and that could be the delay as well. If it's just these guys should be sitting around waiting for coach. We'll come back into hell. No 'cause you'll miss out on three great ones right now and the guy can't sit. He's pretty good. Yeah there's a few out bryan bryan nabil's a great job of it's not for them by by the way he calls place for buffalo. Josh phenomenal so we will discuss. And i can tell you this. The quite worried about south carolina's said screw this or paying a fifteen million dollar will champ and we are moving on which means they're call on liberty up and saying hey free we want you. We would love you to be our court our head coach next year. And we'll get that sign now. Finish out year with liberty. We'll see in about. Oh a month and a half so we'll come back and discuss these texas. Listen it's not a good team that i've got my my glass half full glasses just done gone empty on the texans because when you get punched in the mouth and can't respond in the run game that's only on you and everybody vote offensively. They i don't care about the weather yesterday. Cleveland had to deal with it to we discussed go on the week. They made more plays than you did it. Sports talk seven. Ninety f- mice mccullers junior of houston astros. You're listening to sean salisbury. On sports talk seven nine lance mccullers. How about the performance your home for houston. Astros baseball. Every single ross. Shortly after watch. Film seed novak. Jj at a thrill at a very minimal minimalist at its best understand. Everybody's always looking for him to be the explanation guy. No he should not. That's my point. He absolutely should not have to be the explanation guy but they wanna make him that and unfortunately i know he's a he's He's is competitive. Is you're fine. So i'm sure it drives him nuts. You can tell. He's fed up. And as i was telling michael in the break. You could really tell that he was just overall this. Because even with these short answers. I would have to bump the audio a lot. Because he was very much like they're pressuring spellcheck style wasn't saying it out loud. Well let's hear what the shawn watson on twenty two say about the frustration of this loss which gets him to two and seven and the bags. they're starting to clean their golf clubs and stick him in their trunk. In my opinion every frustrated draws a holiday every losses i rating but you gotta take it on and and go back to the drawing board and just try to get ready for patriots sweet. And that's all we can do is just keep comport and Learn from the mistakes and learn from you know missed opportunities and try to get back to the basis and get details of new england And try to focus on that one itself the lose especially in his lead Have opportunities and we didn't capitalize high could put that on a perpetual real every week. Someone mean i. I don't care about much about the answer is not something i want to see your name. Come up there and be pissed. Yes he. he's not yes just doesn't sound like yes and i just want not here a little bit of in your chest and i know when people say well. That's the leadership you just keep moving forward. No sometimes leadership you've got. I hate to say it. Sometimes later she got to look in the rear view mirror and say. Why are we doing this. Because when he said it's the same thing about missed opportunities. We just gotta go back to the drawing but had but it's the problem is incorrect. They don't correct the mistakes. That's my problem not about a team. Yeah it's the same thing every week they'll make a few big plays in a game. They don't know how to sustain series after series on either side of the football. And i'm convinced that this is one thing that this kid is a such a good player in watson he'd just is but i'm gonna tell you one thing that i'm convinced now that he's never going to learn. I'm sorry to say he's just not the you know. There are certain things that you guys are going to get better at certain things. They're just not gonna learn what's his he will never thought he will. He will take a sack before he'll throw the ball away. Yeah and here's why once again and it happens every single week and you gotta say what am i willing to sacrifice again safety and i'm gonna tell you what this team does way too much to. They missed free. Runners were either miss a hot reader aside adjustment or somebody misses a block on a regular basis on a regular basis every week. It's something and unless we're in the room. No well which way were they slide in the line of protection is that guy or is that back that missed. His block was a hot. Read to sean. Spicer throw happens. All the time i would blitz these guys all the time but the problem is one time guy comes in and hits watson hard from secondary blitz. He bounces off a player and then go scramble and make a play right or throw it out about or get two yards aikido. You the mall you know he does. The problem is that when he makes those. There's this built in thing. That says i can make every one of those right and there was a couple of pass rushes and i thought that the cleveland did a great job. Were they if you notice from the end zone camera they gave you know gap to slide through. And that's how you got to be disciplined with a guy like watson you've got state you're outside arms free for some inside and a lot of times guys force them in size in two guys will be in one gap and they'll be where can get skinny and a whole and slide through it and then go. The browns did a good job a couple of times yesterday. That didn't happen. But every game he steps out of guaranteed sack and goes and makes five yards a big play a completion cancel why they're averaging one eight point eight yards or somewhere per attempt going into the last couple of weeks where he was number one in the league. I don't know if that extended it yesterday. But he was most of the season. So i don't want coach out aggressiveness. But there guys. There's gotta come a time when you're battling guys you just got to throw it away and you're not always going to be able to do that. I mean yesterday there was a play where he i think it was a read option or just a fake the hand off garib bid on it hard. He looked like he had the easy. I down but because geared athletic he had to everything he could just to get that first down once again got to be having night. He's going to be having nightmares. Yeah scared because they guys This full blown very very athletic. Fast running quarterback myles garrett another five-year yards myles. Garrett chases him down. Yeah that's a defensive end. Who is got defensive player of the year written all over not just once but multiple times in this league if his hunger factor stays the same as it's been and they continue to play well but so does shawn. That's one thing i i just. I don't want to coach him but at some point time guys there's got to be a point worry says not today son i gotta throw it away here and that when people say well that doesn't make yes it does that is the next evolution of a great as much as you guys. Don't some people. Literature watch aaron rodgers. All all the time has no problem. Throw new plays lose. Yes i listen. I i got to take the l on this so second. Ten seconds sixteen. Then what happens is you get eight yards on second down and then they blitz you and you gotta throw hot and you catch it for a six yard gain its fourth and two and you're at midfield. Now you gotta decide. Do we go for it. Give them short field. Do we punit right that. And that's the that's how coordinators think and it just somehow some way he has got to. He has got to convince this team or himself. They've got to come out of the locker room faster on a content. They don't man they they. They lalla gag. Which is a word you'd use for a three year old right. They lolly gagging just kind of just. It's like a win. You guys gonna win like we're standing around waiting for you to pat him on the butt until yes yes playing wakeup call or always waiting for somebody else to make a play and get green bay packers every single game when they come out locker go down score and even if they have a series of two or they don't they struggle after that and they struggled at times yesterday at least they know they got seven on the board. Now okay. we're in it. You scored a touchdown. Now it's time instead of we're in the chase mode so they always keep it around the only game. They couldn't do that for the most and they actually did do it against tampa bay and then the rest of the game tampa bay shot him down right. And a buccaneers reared their hadn't played back to the thank goodness after that piss game. They played a week ago. They scouted they look like a playoff team tiny. Hey i'm gonna put a book right after humiliated now. You look at the nfc. We'll get back there. But the i know how good seattle seattle's defense going to keep them out suitable and it's true in my out meeting. They might be struggling to win the division hustle. Wilson doesn't have an. mvp for they lose. It cannot win out of the mvp theme and trying to overcome a bad defense becomes a problem and you look at them. Green bay was pushed to the brink. I still think they're pretty good. 'cause rogers and they can run the ball and he makes big plays and davante adams. Who's good but they're not to the point where you think they could beat the first round of the playoffs right. If new orleans roles in there let's just say or tampa goes in there and brady has one of those games. They could beat them. New orleans quarterback banged up forty niners backup quarterback hung around for a minute. Then new orleans kicked into gear and their defense pretty good to the tampa bay up and down seattle up and down rams up and down. Arizona plays hermione the division leader. I know which is amazing so as you look not cardinals fan. Why would let's do it. I mean i like golf course lines. Excuse me their quarterback awesome. So here though. I don't know we try and try and try not that. They're listening to us. But i try to decipher. How how do we get them going. How do they come out of the locker room and then it just becomes a simple fact that coaches motivational speeches. Don't mean squat. When it comes that you've got a motorbike yourself. What about canopy on as they're running out poke each of them the ass cannell from i. You know what they're either gonna do to. They're either going to respond or stay of the locker room. And i'm not sure which what it'd be right now. So it's so frustrating for me to watch and then you just watch them get get in the second hand. The fourth quarter every single snap new cleveland. Browns were running and you still could not stop them. Yeah i mean the passing attempts late in the game in the fourth quarter. I don't know what they had. They couldn't have thrown the ball five times in the fourth quarter. Unless unless i watched every play and maybe i'm over but handed off hand off hand off hand off ham and they gashed them. Mightily maybe it was the last ten minutes instead of the entire fifteen minutes but they knew it and you knew that they were trying to kill this thing. Today made no secret. I believe the only pass i can remember. Is that pastor kareem hunt. I believe it was in the fourth quarter that it was behind him and he couldn't get the first down in riotous remember three passes in fourth quarter and i watched the whole game and i will watch it again just to make sure that i didn't miss someone. Well they were close. I swear to you what it was three to nothing. You said ballgame. I did. I told us three to nothing. I thought you know what they're not win this game. How when do you say you're down. The game is almost outta reach. Which is strange. And i don't usually think like that it's just mayfield to pass attempts to right and they ran. It ran it. You knew they were going to run it and you still couldn't stop minister run it it run it run it. You still couldn't stop him so it just tells you. Listen you might want to look forward to it. And i'm not a glass half empty guy but i am glass half empty got. It's a matter of fact it's bone-dry when it comes to the texans this year two and seven no shot and you just happen to be catching the patriots. Well they had sixteen rushing attempts in the fourth quarter just happened to catch them when they're looking cute again when they're playing good. Yeah all right. Sportstalk seventy coming right back. We'll put up the big one today and james. It seems there's a feel. I don't know that hardens dot com. Be here next. Year i did. This is gaining momentum. The question anger and where a lot of talk got a lot of talk about a lot of texas teams. Here we'll discuss is any of it. Good sports talk seven ninety. There's a lot happening. And he's got a lot to say about his. Sean salisbury continues on seven ninety question. Just one question plant. One question is the big one a big question of the day. On the sean salisbury. Show all right the big one real simple which we heard over the weekend could happen which to me is just and it had nothing to do with romeo cornell because he's a good guy and a hell of a football coach has defensive coordinator and i think players like him and he respected around the league. But it's time to find the new head coach here just that simple will romeo cornell b. the texans head coach and twenty twenty one as the talk grows which would mean that jack easterby and all this korn ferry talk to jack. Easterby would position himself to be the general manager. Yeah this is all this. All smells a play right not. Just you're also going to hire korn korn-ferry group and you've wasted your money or do you get like some sort of voucher to come back later. How's that work like store credit. That's a half million we're gonna pay or whatever they come back because fire romeo cornell or jack has position it to the point where. I'm your best candidate so were paying you to hire me. I have no idea you know what i want to ask. Jack easterby i do. I laid in bed in this honest to god truth. This is so pathetic that i'm actually thinking of these guys. I mean they'll do that bed last night when they traded hopkins. I told you that the night. After that i did not sleep. I was here the next morning at like two thirty in the morning. Can't get sleep right. I'm laying in bed. And i'm thinking i want to interview him. Like you know how they have. The exclusive barbara walters. I wanna be that guy. Because here's what i wanna know. I wanna look at jackie's to be in the face. And i want to say if you were the owner. Would you hire you. Exempts your resume looking as your resume worthy of being the general manager and i want him to look me in the face. Say yeah and i'm back up with one simple question. why yes. it's real easy and if somebody doesn't asking that question that gets around him shame on you. Show shame on this town. If we don't ask him any time he wants to come on and it won't be five. I listen. i don't know jack. That whatever i say that they jack about anything you know jack jack easterby right but i do. I would love to be the guy. Sit down because i mean listen. I won't be rude. But i will pepper him with the that. The what is your qualification. Neighbor his answer. Oh yeah calling his qualification to interview him see high. I know what you're saying. Is that what you meant by qualification interview. Ms probably bigger than his qualification to say. I'm the general manager. Fox so i just. I do love this part of the article yesterday. They're going to high if they did high behind this. This is this tells you all you need to know about them. Though yeah rap was a little bit little bit concerned about jack last week when he came on like. I don't know sean yeah. I don't know why he's got someone cornell now. The interim coach is a well respected longtime defensive coordinator who has been a head coach in the past for texas. He could serve as a stopgap coach. Josh manson mentioned earlier allowing the team to get twenty twenty one with some stability and pushing their true coaching. Search the following offseason with kobe nineteen restrictions and allow for traditional in person search. No one knows what the country will be like in january but flying around the country interviewing several candidates maybe challenging even on private planes. It's possible that coaching candidates will be interviewed on zoom. That means a team could invest thirty or forty million dollars and a head coach. They'd never met no. I'm sorry i guess what you mentioned. Private jets your private jet can get you wherever you want and not be worried about copen. You're asking an interview anybody in person. Sorry we're watching. People fly everywhere. Now you can get onto the implying you're gonna in the jet and bring the person to houston. We've watched bob mcnair do it. Ed reads elast. Let let me let me be possible. Let me explain something to what is what is our guy. Clay travis called corolla broke down. That's listen that's i'm not talking about ian. I'm just telling you that. Part of the story i i. I was on a plane. They make you wear masks of this password to a back and forth. I was on a plane. It was full. I got rid of. I stopped full but we can't send a private jet to go interview coach. Listen i'm gonna do. I don't even care if they don't have a private jet. Which i know but i'm saying let's just say at a time they didn't. I'm pretty sure they right. But you can also pro charter one. Or let's just say the old school times when they didn't use to fly coaches on private jets. You said no. You're flying first class. Yeah okay and booze put a mask on. Why are we if you're worried about that. Put a mask on so the world supposed to stop. I love and i get what he's saying but this virtue going to know. Listen eric be enemy. I'm gonna just tell you this. If eric enemy comes out on a private plane and interviews with us in a room he ain't gonna die he gonna be okay. I just i don't know that much. Maybe fao she thinks different. But i think he's going to be okay. The pilots and the private jet pry where. Guess what you get to do. You get to ask eric being if he feels comfortable being enemy and guess what he'll say sure to him. Sure exactly right and sit across the conference room table. And i got news for you. I invested money. I've already done a lot of research. I already know what eric vietnamese about much. I've been doing research. Korn-ferry's four thank you. So i i just i can actually pick up the phone and call up and say andy talked to me about this guy well blah blah blah. I can pick up the phone and talk to. I want also talked to a coach would be enemy was where they didn't have success right. Maybe when he was an assistant one in minnesota assistant and ask how was it. What was and how did was great through this. That's why andy hired him there and he's got that if if coat and i always liked the stopgap bridge the gap to what what what. What are we bridging. The gap too. There's no person that's coming out of retirement or some coordinator that just needs one more year and then now there so we're not going to hire the best player then you can't trade because you know what i'm concerned that brooklyn hasn't done their due diligence and if brooklyn hey also have done a see the guy on tv four million times and played against him but you know what if i'm going to invest that kind of money i gotta make sure that i can interview them without a mask on or with a mask on stop it. Just stop so is going to shut down again. I got a big middle finger for. He'll apparently gonna make texas finding a new head coach but sure it is sure these are the head coaching openings. He walks the new right. Just come in the. We're worried about covid. Brian daboll comes in an interviews from buffalo. As as the head coach. Here or joe brady from carolina. I assure you in the end of the day just like when somebody walks into the office so many. Brian daboll diane during his interview. He's gonna be okay okay. Now if he was sick and weighed four. Twenty and was eighty five. I would actually consider may brian. Maybe this jobs not for you or this interview. He's not okay. So point being an eric b enemy. We have gone so overboard with this. Now we're going to bridge twenty twenty two because we're concerned that we can't interview a coach in person. What who what. But you're going to run your players out on the field without a mask on tackling each other and this is what we're going to tell we can't go interview can't take a friday. That's the worst excuse of all time and you can call me up at seven one. Three two one two five seven hundred ninety all you want. tell me you know. We need a bridge because it's too dangerous interview coach for twenty twenty one and i'll laugh at you. I don't think we're going to get thank god. I would hope not good gracious are are you kidding me not only in but that the world actually thinks this we need a bridge that takes you wanna lose money. Don't wanna lose money. Stand pat and have jack easterby as your general manager. No offense and romeo. Cornell's your head coach. The building will be empty and twenty twenty one. That's bridging the gap. All right bridging the gap to broke miss. Okay you wanna be jackson general manager when he's not qualified let him hire general manager and then get qualified over the next decade. Maybe it can be the general manager after he's done being the chaplain so save it. Save this covert. We can't interview bridge the gap. So is that what a six other teams are going to do with all their coach jets can't do it. Man governor cuomo. Let's have a guy come in good. Then you get on a plane flight of the coach. You wanna hire can't do it. We can't do it. Oh okay got you. So we'll just bridge the gap to twenty twenty two and then some smart team will say screw you. I'm higher hidden. Be enemy bridge the gap. You want because my bridge ain't breaking. So i just don't get the whole. You're gonna let good candidates go by force if you do this. Is you being cheap and also having somebody. That's playing a power. I got news for you. Even with colbert. If couldn't interview the enemy. I know i got enough. I'll talk to people. I can hire his ass over the phone. If that's what i wanted to zoom calls. Thank you very much do you that some companies. That's what they're doing they're staying home. They're not even sending their employees being the country but save it. I don't wanna hear that. The covert is too dangerous to interview a coach. Romeo is going to be here for another year right. Say say the they know what's coming next year. Another season like that's the worst virtue signal ever smart respectful. I get all that. But i can't interview a guy because the covid. Oh that's right so nobody told him to. Come walking in and start sneezing on each other. You can interview the guy and and you can do it in person you could put him on a plane people flying every day. Go to the airport happens all the time. I'm sure there's been on a plane a few times. Just frigging stupid trying to even think about that. That cova defected. We can't scout the coach. You may not be able to scout four hundred and fifty players like you want to. You can scout the coach okay in a covert year. You can't yeah yeah you sure. Can sports talk seventy. We'll get to your calls next seven one three two five seven ninety. Yeah can't hire. We need a bridge detroit so we can go four and twelve again sportstalk. Seven ninety footing the logic illogical former. Pro sean salisbury continues to break it down seven ninety going to take your calls. Excuse me. I've got two ton of passion every day but today fired up with this simple thought. That can't hire a coach for twenty twenty two twenty twenty two because of covid save it. That's i don't even wanna hear that. I don't even wanna hear it dumb enough even thinking about shutting the country down but that's for another day the ravens and braunau the same record six and three the dolphins colts. Titans and raiders are also six three in the afc. You wanna talk about finding out. Who's going to be playing at home outside of pittsburgh and kansas city. May when he talked to me. Those are pretty solidified. what they're doing. But the raiders. Making this thing. They're they're trying to hang around right in the afc right into the final right now. All those teams pittsburgh and kansas city clearly separated themselves but the afc talk about an battle. Royal is going to be fun in the nfc. I'm not sure who the best team. Is that a royal at the bottom. Where the texans are currently only and then to arm and makes a good point. Well they win another game this year. Dead serious question danger of not winning another game simply because you're going to get to the point where this frustration and groundhog day stuff starts to affect the locker room. Because i got news for actually if i was on that team. Yeah i'd be thinking to myself. How in the world can you you start. You gotta be careful because what happens is unless you're delusional and maybe this football team is delusional. Because you start to think if you're delusional you start to think to yourself. Well we are still really good but we only give up two hundred yards one hundred. Seventy five hundred yards rushing the week. Be careful because locker. Rooms can't get divided. But i don't think jay would would allow that to happen but i'm telling you. The frustration grows to the point where it is. The texans have opened in most places a point and a half to two and a half point favorites. That's just because the homefield against against new england this next week right. And i'm not stone. Cold the way they play they might not be a favorite again until cincinnati. Right after this one. I'm not sure since. I in cincinnati has cincinnati. Can't beat them. Joe burrow over. There you go. I don't know if they're going to win another game. We'll see brian in richmond. What's up brian. Hey guys I was just saying Thinking you know maybe we should let romeo cornell have another season and see what he can do with the open. One i i for one was never Down with firing bill. O'brien part of that might be. Because i'm a fan. And i want the texans to suck but hey go ahead sign. Romeo kobe stuff for you. Know another five or six years ago dea. Brian don't do that to the locals. Please bud appreciated. He's the titans fan so he wants rubio here. They want actually signed him to a six year deal. Sure i like romeo. I do but this team needs new head coach and general manager with some football acumen. That actually knows the position and qualified. Not i'm not at the head coach. Romeo done it a long time. The general manager. Let's get to ronnie ronnie welcome in thank god extend this a little farther If you're afraid to interview coaches because of the covert and all that kind of stuff. And i worried about the draft anyway. Because i don't know how you're going to evaluate players in places value on players when some players haven't played at all this year. Some college teams aren't going to play a full schedule and extend this on even in the next year. If we don't get everything right because of the covid. But if you can't interview coaches you're afraid to bring people in or go see him. How the hell you going to evaluate players. Good news they don't they don't have any Draft picks until the third arrests. they can do they. Just pick whoever you're right. Thank you for the call. I listen. I'm so that that to me that's built. That's an excuse that i don't need to hear. Oh we can't have. We gotta have romeo here because well can't can't interview a head coach literally sir. Every college and nfl opening will be interviewing people right. Oh blame it on while. Everything's if that's the case in the holden all of us need to do build an underground tunnel and just go live underground and just stop the whole world like we're in like a An alien is about to invade us right. Yeah let's that movie with john goodman member when they went underneath the house like two years ago. Cloverfield that exactly that. So yeah you did. For the first time. And i didn't i like it. Yeah it's over ten or cloverfield cloverfield cloverfield lane. Maybe that's what it feels. Originally it was a remake right. It was like three maker second rise in two thousand sixteen so cloverfield length. I said two years ago. It's been four there. You go so yeah i i put a tenant but i put the ten at the end as opposed to the beginning so can't believe the point is is that the world ain't living like that and if you're afraid to i mean we're we're really going to be a froude stopped deaf because we're afraid that covert might affect us interviewing a head coach. I it would literally the most perfect texans thing ever people like to get on this guy last week saying i'm nothing but negative nothing but negative your client. I'm like how. Can you see anything positive like i don't. I don't want to be negative with them. But they're literally giving you a reason. Every single week in this report is another one. They're going to hide behind. Covid nineteen allowing them to interview head coaches. And they're going to keep around seventy seventy four year old guy who's not going to win games and in the process of not hiring a higher higher coach gbs somebody one of those guys at the front office is going to be a steakhouse with somebody with their family can give. Yeah it's absurd the virtue signaling of all this is absolutely nuts and borderline nutjob stuff okay. So with that in mind and you're one hundred percent right. Mc and the negativity. You know me. Hell i've been trying to ride this half for trying to find the silver lining in all of the needle in the haystack. And after i watched again. Yesterday i'm just i two and seven. There's glass half full now in the off season make change. There's glass fool certain players. Don't misunderstand me. But i'm not worried about the players at the unit gives me two and seven and the way they're losing. It's not like the hanging in the way they're losing his just downright at times humiliating and i know they don't like it. I'm not saying the players like it but they can't fix it defensively. They just can't fix it because they're not good then. We talked about real quick. Jack easterby we in rappaport on. Here's what last wednesday we were talking about the easterby and texans situation. Here's what ian rapoport had. When i- peppered him about questions about this organization attention to the houston texans search for a new head coach. And right now they have interim coach romeo cornell and he is now running the show and the plan have to get to the end of the season and hire new coach. My understanding inside from inside the texans building is that they are strongly considering just keeping romeo krill and through the twenty twenty one would continue to make him the oldest coach in the. Nfl would certainly be an unconventional move. But the reason this is being considered by jackie's and others in the texans brass's because basically do to covid nineteen in person interviews. Maybe difficult to have to give thirty forty million dollars to coach. You've never met. Certainly that is not something that right now is ideal would also allow easterby to remain in charge for a couple of years until they get everything. Settled in houston. That's very end. That's ian rapoport talking this past right about this thing. We'll come back and see what what what he said last week. Talking about jack easterby. And while i love then study aims just doing his reporting the fact that somebody would tell me in this organization that covets going to prevent you from interviewing a head. Coaching candidate it. Only because easterby thank you. You heard him say a couple years. Which means jackets to be the boss. Yeah he gets a lot of wholesale bid fixed then all of a sudden he gets to be the hero. We'll come back and discuss sports talk seven ninety and we'll hear more from ian rapoport in our interview last week with him and save the coal that excuse for interviewing head coaches because guess what front office or anybody else who's suggesting it it doesn't fly here and not one bit okay. And we're coming back in studio next. Come into our studio will interview and fauria. Because we're doing it right now right here all day long for four hours and all day long and four hours and we're still here okay and guess what will interview anybody you need. Because i think. I'm more qualified to interview a head coaching candidate. Then jack easterby is just a hunch sports talk seven ninety seven o'clock hour next men's t clinic guys. Listen nobody.

Shot shots time french hustles. Very this is the sean salisbury. Show our number two alec. Stay right there. We're going to get to your. Here's what i asked. Ian rappaport on our ben. You've already rapport talk about that. They're actually considering. Romeo cornell is head coach. Jack easterby as general manager. Put him in power for a couple of years because well covid might affect interviews. Okay can't meet them in person call. It's not good enough now. There's this listen they don't wanna give thirty to forty million right. If you thought jack easterby being here yes. A thirty million dollars for a coach. He can thirty million bucks to bill. O'brien he didn't serve. I i can. I can interview coach person during covid. Sorry to tell you. I can and would have no problem doing it. And what he actually asked to answer an answer and get up on the board and talked me. I'll say go ahead and take your mask off. I got mine on. It's okay we're gonna be okay. Did you test negative. Yeah okay come on in all good right. Is this situation with jack. Easterby and asked ian rapoport. And if you think that this hasn't been a big bill. O'brien was people weren't maneuvering themselves to put themselves in position of power. You're not yeah okay. So here's what. Here's what ian rappaport said. When asked him about jackie strategies respect around the league. I'm not sure that anybody knows very much about jack. Easterby i mean they know that he was essentially chaplain with the patriots that he got involved in some personnel and was involved in kind of i guess building the team or helping character culture or something like that. I'm not honestly quite sure. I don't mean that as a flight. I'm really just i don't know fact the and your i've no idea And then comes to houston as a character coach. And then we've seen what we've seen. I i think the people who know him. Well are extremely devoted to him. People who don't know him have many many questions about everything that has gone on joosten since he arrives. Well there you have it. Yeah i mean they when to jackie serving hired twenty two thousand eighteen eighteen right around there he was supposed to go to. His contract was not renewed with the patriots. He was supposed to go with bright. What's his face mcdaniels to indianapolis and that didn't happen. It was kind of a rhetorical question. You can't hire a guy two thousand twenty according to what we're hearing because of covid but With the texans but you can fire one. He could run out of the building can go and tell him. Hey by the way how. I got a great idea. Just tweet or text eric. Be enemy or one of these coaches. Texted me like hiram when the season ends you during that interview process and we'll see what happens alex. Welcome in man how you doing. Hey sean good morning fell doing good good Again man. Every time. I call them. And how much loaded informative Dropdown show on this time. But everybody's pretty much the man What exactly is it. That i watched yesterday because i've been watching the gene put up a lot of numbers over the past few weeks and i just had it in the back of my head that this will be the week that we can't get fourteen point the offense and i've been damned if that wasn't what happened. Man and back was that i watched yesterday and another quick question What exactly is it that made us trade the andrey hopkins what what made us better about that. I just saw to go up and try to buy and snack. A ball It in the game that does not just in the game. The one that you needed him to catch you up and caught in a traffic between three and we got two guys on. These team is hard enough on. Mckay balls alex you yeah one hundred percent correct and i know you're being sure answer going power. There's no question because it wasn't about money that's what they they hid behind the money thing board. You know one. Bill didn't like the way deondraye practice didn't like the power yet simple. You can call any way you want the And the khalil mack. Trade or the two were strays of the decade. Although here's the difference like i've heard round picks and the raiders. First round picks and the raiders and the raiders are winning. Yeah so they've found a way to somehow take those picks and apply them and it's working here they've taken no picks and applied nothing and it's not working so there's a big difference when i had some guy when i said hopkins said i thought it was the khalil mack. Trade keep it moving. I said keep moving said. Yeah well those first round pick. They're actually making thanks happening. they're winning. They might not might both be bad traits. But nothing is. It's gonna take time for the hopkins trade. This is worse. Considering what you've got in return. Yes get rid of khalil mack. I was beside myself as a raider fan. But you know what. At least. They've started answering john's got him going in the right direction gruden. Does this team's going the wrong way. And they do. And the raiders first round picks khalil and khalil's a hell of a player but david johnson's now the backup and should be johnson's a better player. We saw that again yesterday and no disrespect to goshen like. But he shouldn't be starting now he just shouldn't and then you've got a team that hopkins continue. What another one hundred plus yards a bunch more cast seven eight catches again yesterday and then the game winner. There's just be away from being a year away or whatever and now they're they're right and so yeah they're like this year's forty niners now whether they get to the super bowl or not another thing but they are first place in the division the quote unquote that was given hopkins was leaked out. There is that he wanted to get paid and he wasn't gonna play unless you got paid yesterday. Showed you while you pay that guy. Whatever he wants because they could have made working their salary cap. They kept saying well. We have to pay a tunsil. We have to pay hopkins watts all the name shirt they could have done all. I got news for you. Had you just said well. We're going to wait. it out. Hopkins played he he he would have played would have been and then still hundred balls disgruntled. Yep okay so that's neither here nor there now because we never get him back. But i will tell you this and alex you make good point the thought they could go out there and i know you're gonna we're gonna get the excuse that it was bad weather. Because the cleveland in score a lot of points either. But here's the difference. They made enough plays in the run game to control the clock and win. They just did so. We can say all we want yes. I didn't expect a thirty eight point. Performance out of state especially with the weather and cleveland playing better and cleveland now six and three teams sitting sitting right for sitting pretty in a playoff tied with baltimore for second place. Although baltimore's got that one game up on him because they beat them so you sit there and say well okay and member. Everybody's all were much better cleveland. We sit here and said i wouldn't be so we all benefactor we pick cleveland. Yeah pick cleveland to win. And so and they did. And i didn't even feel comfortable down three to nothing as i said i. I didn't think the texas showed me signs of they're going to sustain this game and eventually you get concerned just like you do when you play tennessee and derrick henry that eventually one of the two running backs was going to wear you out in the second half because they were gonna commit to running. 'cause they watch the tape every week of what the texans have done for four quarters against the run not much starts of decency but then again being decent hammered and it wasn't just one due to did it. One guy would go over nick chubb. Grab some gatorade. The other dude come in a rush robuck. Plus then nick chubb come in while kareem hunt decided. Who's got a little more wiggle room. But i'll tell you what trouble where you out now. Smart footballer and it didn't look to me like there was no wiggle when he took off the sidelines and could have gone to the house. Right stepped out of bounds. So it's just listen. You just have to understand the texans fan no matter how positive wants to be an. I've tried and tried and tried. They can't fix this and they're not going to the playoffs and no. They're not capable of going to the playoffs this year because they're not good. It's a real debate of if they're going to win out of the game right. There really is pieces of the puzzle. There's some good ones but even those good pieces of the puzzle. Jj watt misses some place that he could make dhillon watson start slow misses some throws that he could make and then mix some throws it a normal human being can't make and he's spectacular so it it it's it's it's everybody coaches included accountability included. This football team is just. How do we look at it there. I never thought i'd say this with watson. cormac there are bottom five teams in the league. Yes they are everything about says that they are in there playing. Because here's the scary part you make. They may score twenty eight next week. Here's the problem. New england might score thirty one. Oh yeah earned. Run the ball over concerns me and not just run it with the running back the quarterback so and it's like i said players good and i've been a glass half full guy but i just can't. There's nothing i can do right now to look at this and say it can be salvaged and you have to find new head coach. You have to find a football. Gm you got to move on and you gotta just take the l and realized that twenty twenty ain't been good to a lot of people and ain't been good to the texans ain't gonna get better. They're not going to the playoffs. So if that's been in your thought process let it go. You should be begging them to get to four wins so they not picking first or second and you're pissed because that draft picks a team that's won five in a row already in miami miami sitting over there good in a playoff hunt and getting your pick bet has a still. You're still in the hut to get the first pick in the draft and by the way the dolphins gain game on buffalo yesterday with kyla. Murray's play and josh allen and by the way pretty good player to you think they've done some good things with him and the development there he gets them in the end zone to score and then. Unfortunately you're right miami sitting back saying thank you double a. Yeah that's exactly right. Yeah the a double way to hire bill. O'brien some sort of like honorary role to give him a bunch of money to say. Thank you to watch. The saddam dolphins hiram as an assistant he turned around and takes the first round. Pick back and it's a third pick of the draft right twenty thousand silver crew cab. We'll come back with a stakeout next. It's my guys at classic.

Talk seven hundred ninety sports. Talk seven ninety lee. We'll get to you before. We play the stakeout here in just a second Lee what's on your mind and on the west side. How are you lay on. My legal. John are you. Yeah my good man. My my thing is that the texas the season's already over we know it's not gonna turn around. We get all that. But the texas need to hire interim gm. I mean we already screwed up the trade deadline by not acquiring the assets because we have preacher. Jack who clearly would've known to pull off a trade on even if it's traditional in football but what about a retired gm someone who could fill in the gaps for us right now. How are we going to pick a new. Gm with jack easterby leading the way. This is a horrible horrible recipe for disaster. Who do you trust in texas organization to hire the next. Gm the most important position gm in the nfl. Who do you trust. are you going with jack easterby. Are you going with kalmyk. Who are you going with sean. I would be honest with you. I don't think there's any rule against interviewing gm's right now. There's no reason that trump put it this way. I can just tell you this. And i don't mean this disrespectful at all and i don't mean i'm just using me as an example. I know guys right now. That are i mean did are more qualified than than jack easterby to do it. They haven't done it. And i don i want to answer your question. -ly the bottom line is jack. Easterby can't be the guy to hire the gm or the head coach. Because he's not qualified to do it period period. So interim ozzie. Newsome john dorsey. Whatever you wanna do or a committee of people to start now start the search cove eight stopping me from hiring a head coach. That's absurd so yes you're exactly right. They can't go forward as they are now. And it's not going to be an interim guy because the interim guys already here at his. Name's jack easterby. He's the interim guy so in order to prevent this. You gotta get somebody in there. Who knows football jack to be back and continue to be the guy. They have did overseas if he wants to. Use a football guy to make football decision. And if jackie another excuse the what is it excuses. All the candidates are are in season right. Now they're going to wait for the offseason to get it done. The problem with that is they're still having easter. Pull the strings and the committee is going to be an absolute disaster. Even put a great name with ozzie. Newsome there has to be a retired. Gm who could write the ship for right now and help You know make the right pick but the problem is we're so backwards. Who could even make that pick right now. Take a miracle for us to get the right now ozzie. Newsome right now is one thousand times better than who they have in the building from top to bottom that and he's retired ozzy news longer. The gm in baltimore stepped aside. And ozzie newsome been the best. Gm we've had the nfl for the last twenty years period and highly and most underrate salim with you. I i understand why they're going to wait till the end of the season that part i get most teams usually do but in the process of it if jack easterby decides point himself and cow lets him we keep talking about jack and the rest of it like i said i'm sure jackson. I skied lee. Thanks for the call. Is we gotta start to put some of this. The owner grow a set of balls. Grow a set. I cannot believe if i owned a team. You don't get to tell me as the owner who did it. Here's the coach were hiring. I signed your frigging paycheck. And i cannot believe. I don't know kalmyk from well from jack jack easterby. I don't know either one of them. I know a football guy and a guy who gets it. What owner sits around and bill. O'brien do this to he. Controlled cow mcnair then. Apparently jack came in and jack got to the point where he convinced cow. Bill was the guy now jackson. The guy so for me is are we i. I've never understood this. How you as an owner. You're not. You're not the intern trying to get the job. You actually signed the turn because they make a building goal. I'm talking about you can go and find jack. Easterby walked into me right now and i was kalmyk mcnair if he walked into. Be right this second and said to me. Here's what i wanna do. i'm going to corn for. I'm gonna i think we should maybe think about hiring romeo cornell by the time he got out of his mouth. I'd say bring that up one more time and i'll know you're not doing your job will fire you our fire. If i'm understanding next time you walk into my office put five names on my desk. The gm candidates. And i'm gonna put five names as well. Because if i'm the owner. I'm doing my homework. It's my money my franchise my city. That comes when it come in root for my team that i got responsibility to know. What's going on mark. Cuban knows everything that goes on in his franchise and you can dislike jerry jones. All you want damn right. He does you think. Jerry jones is gonna let the let some guy in the office higher his next head coach if it was he. Didn't that guy didn't hire mike mccarthy. Jerry did whether you like to hire that jerry. Did the same thing here. I have zero idea why it made me as the boss as the owner would allow don football guy to make a football decision for me. I'd say jackie step over here. I heard you for this reason. You and your pro personnel guy you guys go and give me five names. You think i'm going to. Because i know as the owner because it's my business that i want success four. I'm gonna put my five. We're going to compare and see if i don't want you to tell me about him. Put them on a piece of paper folded up. And we'll see and then we're going to go and we're going to start the interview and jack you're not a candidate to be gm bingo you can learn because you got a lot to learn because no offense being a chaplain and leading guys in prayer doesn't qualify you to it qualifies you to go and and be jolo steen's guests but it doesn't qualify you to be the gm at this football team football just because you hung around bill belichick means you ain't bill bell check so you're going to hire football guy and if you don't think you can hire a football guy then i'm going to hire two or three guys and majority rules to come in and sit in here. I'll call troy aikman. I'll call ozzie. Newsome guys have been around and we'll sit him in here. We'll discuss it if i'm spinning that much money on korn ferry. Use step aside jack. This put team chaplain together. I'm gonna make sure that. I get wreck on the owner. And i'm going to hire the guy that i knows. Best from my franchise. It builds me a championship. Whether it's lincoln riley. Brian cabell. Joe brady eric enemy or seven other dudes or robert sala or i don't care who it is. But i'm going to do my interviewing. Because i'm gonna do my due diligence. But here's what's happening. The staff will be here next year. There may be a guy or two. I'll interview after to see if they belong with. But i'm not making that decision that guy who's the head coach will decide tim. Kelly romeo cornell stay on it. Feels like bob mcnair was the football guy in the mcneil. Family and cow doesn't know much so he tries to find these guys who can make these decisions for him and they don't really know didn't feel like much of a football when you're a football owner that hires than non football front office guy and you're trying to find a winning football team. You ain't got much shot okay. That'd be like trying to find your lead. Orthopedic surgeon at a dog on veterinarian's office okay. Sorry he operates on dogs and that's a matter of fact that's even closer to success because at least he's a surgeon at understands bones and ligaments and tendons. Okay stop it. You're the owner. Make a decision. But that's the is the owner not real. Sure he hires a front office. Guy not reassure and he had a head coach. Gm there was too sure too much power. So we've gone the extremes of both get a good football man who's got compassion but also listen. If you're not doing your job you're gone and it's the same with players accountability in the office. I cannot fathom running my business away were. It's a football business and i don't have a football guy making football decisions. I as the decision maker and the best. The best bosses recognize their weaknesses and hire somebody to cover them meaning. I don't know football so the next higher for me. He's gotta be fantastic football guy if you're an english guy and you don't know money. Higher kepala gist. If you're a just and you don't know how to read the stuff of the contract hire somebody who does if you're an owner who doesn't understand the ins and outs of football higher football guy. Not a guy who leads the team in prayer. That's important a chaplains important. It is god bless him but not when it comes to make an undrafted hiring the gm that's going to ensure that my football team makes money and we win so he can win a championship. Because i do believe that's the goal so if you're owner doesn't get it. How do you expect the guy who hands out gatorade to get it. They're not okay and anybody. In between so i listen. I forgot more football than jack. Easterby and cow mcnair no. I don't want the job. Well i'm only the reason. I'm saying that there's guys a thousand times more qualified than i am. That always you gotta do is make a phone call and interview. The most successful people always usually have the smartest people around him who are willing to tell them. you're wrong. the most successful people in the world aren't yes men. I mean they hire people. They don't want his. Yes many and you know what else do they realize. They're not always the smartest guy in the room. Cow may know how to make money in his business the rest of it with football cows. Not the smartest guy i'd like. I said i've never shaken. His hand met him a good guy. Don't know him. But i can tell you this when it comes to football. They don't have the proper plan in place. And if you don't plan your work and work your plan will be sitting here saying the same thing. Regardless of how good to shawn watson is in two thousand and twenty one. I think we were happening. What's strap in. It's gotta you're saying is going to be a thing. Which is what. I'll come in there and give you fifteen minutes of my time. Who should hire. And i'll do it for free just to save this city from another year of bs when it comes to blame it on everything but the simple fact that you don't really know who you're supposed to hire to sports talk. Seven ninety. sean salisbury show. We will stick it out next right here on sports. Talk seventy my guys. Mc and josh seek. Come right back. i james is james. The sauce ause berry so can seize the saw. The sauce sports socks ever ninety. Sean what do you hear. Not there now. The cells burris takeout takeout. On the sean salisbury. Show my head's going to explode thinking about what the texans are doing honest to god. I don't it just. I can't fathom how how what a waste it's going to be and let me tell you something i'm i'll tell you i don't like i don't but it's the nature of the sport. I mean if you don't do your job in football then new coach replace you and they. They all know that going in right no coach to one place. They have been coaching here. Since i was twenty one at least when. They're seventy whether it's college if they're moving around right here in houston. You can be around for a long time. Yes she pushed back here you or someone you want to work for the job security. Yeah and that's another thing. If you're eric the rest of them when you start to look at the front office. The by the way they're approaching it. They eliminate candidates daily every single day by the way they they look at it and and the way they approach when you hear this about the easterby situation and cow mcnair if you're a a a thriving young or older head coach and your next five years you're going to invest in something. I hate to say this knowing what i know about the front office. Watson's not good enough to to overcome a front office. And that's saying something because you know i feel about watson that oughta tell you just how bad it is like man that quarterbacks special but the band the buddies three caps man three capital letters in it's huge dot dot dot. The rest of the situation is not good. And i will tell you this whether you're mike devlin on the offensive line anthony. We've run do nothing personal against of these guys coaching staff. I'll tell you what i don't know of any other place. That has this kind of patients with assistant coaches either. I just don't because as i find the owner right now. I'm gonna tell you what house is going to be clean. You know when you have somebody come in and you just like you're going to. They do a full clean sky talking about when you look at them. Everything's gone and then you start to give close away to the goodwill and i mean before you've done it all you've cleaned it. All it's all clutter is all gone and you walk in you say. Oh my gosh a new lease on life right. I'm gonna tell you what i if there's anybody left from this current time. Not talking about the players. they'll be players left. I don't see how the you can look at a position group right now and say maybe receivers at times i. I don't know how you look at a position first of all if i'm the owner the head coach to make every decision. Now if you interview guy the running back coach you love him hiring. You love mike. Devon devon higher but. There's nobody on here that you say you have to keep him to be the head coach head coach. You do whatever you want you clean this whole house and scrubber however you want to manage your team that's what you have to do because it empowers the head coach to know then. He's accountable for every decision. Because if you keep an offensive coordinator and the coach didn't want him now. Guess who's accountable. You are said to put it on the coach. Who you hire dude. You're you're accountable. Page your and the general manager you're cannibal because you hired the damn coach you're attached at the frigging hip came. San francisco have john kyle. Shanahan were to ever go as much john that not happen. I'm just using them. Because every time we see one signs of new contract the other right did if one sucks. Guess what who has to take account ability for it now. They don't suck you both. Do you hire the guy. You're accountable for it. And we can't keep letting gm tire guys keep getting fired. Because guess what that means. I gotta start to look at the owner of the gm then or the people doing the hiring because they're not doing their due. Diligence south the province san francisco. We'd take kyle shanahan six ways twice on sunday right but anyway let's take it out mc let's start with you. We have not gotten to the other manning here. We can straighten thing in houston sports as of light. We talked obviously a lot about westbrook last week. The pardon rumors. Continue to swirl. Even though i felt that the reporting was very shoddy this felt like penny wars at its finest because woes got scooped by shams on harden being committed in for next season and now woes reporting it. Well james harden's intrigued by the thought of going to the brooklyn nets this this to me just doesn't i don't get it. I think it's it's not a team. It's a realistic possibility. Because they don't have what you would want. Return would seem so philadelphia as we get moved. Yes i do. I'm intrigued of dayton. Blake lively though. That's how i view wayne intrigued to go to the calls. You're right yeah. I'm intrigued and wanted me. Yeah i'm intriguing. Win the powerful but only when its pilot. You're talking about just era. Blake lively you a crush on her and she's already married to somebody and you think it's so far out of the w- the you have. No shot is what fair enough. I was gonna say. Did blake lively recently become available now. But she was married to one of the ryan's reynolds. Right yeah goslings. Mary to to What's the girl that was in the movie with Even mendez isn't gosling mendez together. I think so. So one of the ryan has got bought. The both the ryan's got both those gals fair enough. So yeah you had them like tam. What does she have to do with brooklyn did she. Data play doh. She's married to reynolds so with that. Yes i do actually mci. I i asked the question last week win. Can you start making trades. Well we found out that like tomorrow at eleven o'clock you can start today today at eleven o'clock josh week. Okay today at eleven. Am the draft is in two days. You could start actually making trades in well from our standpoint if it's eleven eastern eleven central eleven. Let's say it's twelve to eleven our time in less than four hours. You start trading assets to get assets. You want start trading. That's the old rule we get that window. Live free agency kicks in where you could start talking to a guy but he can't whatever okay. It's all this week. We're budget everything. Is we get started on december. Twenty second i am starting to get to the point. I didn't want to buy it. Maybe it's part of me resisting it but there's way too much heat not for me to think that this is unreal. That they're really really thinking about this. I don't know if brooklyn's going to be the team it seems like you'd get from phillies appeared james hard you send him words best for you to send him not for where it's best for him. Oh my gosh. This day crumbled to him put. I don't care what he's done for the franchise and what he's done for the franchise is not put. A bunch of points won't be freaking. Do anyone in beeping. Here's what i here's where i've not see the. Jj watt thanks different. He's later in his career. Not that if you came out still wouldn't give. Jj away for four threader right guy. Still. he's is peak value. Right right and heart is so far. Said i want to go to brooklyn. But philadelphia's offered me more james. I your logger here on your own. Don't have one if phoenix calls tomorrow. Guess what you're going to be calls tomorrow deal and you want out. I'm sure segments. This isn't a james harden deal. This is the houston rockets. Deal if they did if they do end up caving to what he wants to trading. That knows that tells you all you need to know and that's unfortunately tells us that this too. I'm not listen. I'm not in the. Hey life thank you man. I appreciate you being here. We're gonna ship you to make you happy. He's under contract yet. That's exactly right. It's going to get paid where he goes. This trade isn't for james harden this trades for the houston rockets. The other team involved. I'm not i'm not. He came to you a year ago and said hater chris. Paul i want you to trade. Chris paul bring me so guess what. He can't tell you where he wants to. Guess if i want to trade you to philadelphia and get more assets than i would from brooklyn. Guess what you're getting trade to philadelphia or wherever else. that may be mark. Welcome in man. We'll get to you in a second. Josh what's going on mark just wanted to hell with other rocket trae talk whatever after. We have a gm yet do all that. Yeah we do feel rowdy front office. He took over for for daryl morey so he will be making those decisions. Okay and then wondering what ball Kevin durant and The other point over. They're going play with jay here. I mean he gave that thing though man. I'm just wondering how it after work man. i don't hear mark. Thank you appreciate the call. There will be enough basketball's to go around because all three we're going. But if not they i heard they were going to cut it and thirds like pizza pizza pie. Yeah you get a third you get or every game. They're just gonna just today's your day. You get forty quarterback choir you guys who and whoever gets the most in one quarter gets you. It's like when you play and pick up with a three on three or five on five. You win you stay. So we'll get you get the first five minutes of the court or the four four and four. Whoever scores the most in the first quarter four gets to dominate the ball in the second quarter. So that's how we're going to rotate. Its ed get the ball. I would have saved that. All three of them want it. That's going to be fun to watch. I could obviously that if it happens. Josh what you got all right so two quick questions. No the great weekend. Nfl maybe for everyone else beside the texans. Who are your top top three rookie quarterback's because we sell herbert and to play. How would you want them. In order to a borough and herbert and then also mentioned this a little bit of breaking kind of popped in my head who are the top. Three receivers overall the nfl. We're all the real for me. It's it's for me. The top. Three r are hopkins digs and and dj. Dj decay. Metcalf so easy to just want guys de yards. Dj decay came to me. Those are the three that if i was lining up in three received. I'd probably go those three this year. And we're leaving a bunch of good ones off the list. But i start with those three digs has been so good for buffalo. We already know what hopkins brings to the table and metcalfe's just a frigging full grown ass man monster. Okay your top three yard. That they're i know they're in the top five. So i'd start there as far as quarterbacks i'd go in this order right now i don't know what's going to be in top three by the way for me. I'd go berle herbert to today now. Next every single one of them has been impressive. The reason why boroughs got the worst team. And he's he's taking team record wise so yeah And you look at the towers but look at the talent looking around the talent. The talent on the ross racist hunter henry allen. I mean. they've got more players to charge today. They just do it right. And both quarterbacks getting herbert's got both of them have good feet for big big dudes right. So i go borough. I herbert second in herbert's been frigging. He's the biggest surprise. Oddly his game yesterday maybe as worse game and he really wasn't right and then to as you could see every single game. He's taken another step every single game taken us. It was the right move to make the switch from from fits to to it just was and now. There's one three in a row with him five in a row. They're the they're charging the gain a game on buffalo. Yesterday i would go in that order. Now i'm going to tell you this maybe having this conversation in the middle of next year and turban ban jumped burrow burrow. Maybe it's going to be one of those. We're lucky. we got three rookies. Battling for what appears to be a while as far as who was the best quarterback of the draft in that draft. So we'll see and like you said the switch just amazing now because they don't have to worry about. Do we have quarterback. Now they can just go say all right. What do we help. Make this quarterback better spe especially miami fixed but all three of them. Now just get to say we can build our team around these three studs. There is no question who the study is for. All three of all three of them have played damned good flip you can win with all of them and they justified why you picked him where you pick them and there's no question about it. Sports talk seven ninety. That's the stake at coming back. Sean salisbury show golf club a houston golf club houston in unbel- great golf course man. I was thinking over the weekend. I gotta get back out there. And shore game up and get to mike mcgetrick. The mike mcgetrick golf academy phenomenal. He's helped game more than anybody over thirty years of playing golf just at and it takes about an hour for him to make a slight adjustment here there so if you wanna get your game right go see mike if you want to go and see one of the best golf courses where the pros play and you can memberships available everything from going in the grill and the in the great customer service to the golf shop to to the driving range all the things. I'm a guy likes the little things little details and they do them. Go back to the sean salisbury. Show on sports. Talk seven hundred. Houston your stores your rockets your voice. Sports talk said the ninety rolling along here. Our number two The struggle football wise is so real the passion Even more real. But it's it's bothersome romeo cornell talking about the difference number eleven josh the difference in the run game meaning defending the run in the first half of the second half but we play sixty minutes. I'm and i have not heard this yet. But i'm anxious. Hear romeo cornell. Discussing the difference in two halves first half. I thought that we did our job better. After that first series you know we get our job better and then we were able to stop the run and then in the second half you know we knew that they were going to run it and so guys started trying to make plays and got out of position and they took advantage of it. I don't understand that philosophy. We're doing our job in the first half when they were running it and then we knew they were going to run it so we quit doing our job. You'd think you to be easier if you know. They're only thinkers your next texans head coach. Think about the conflict in this. We knew they were going to run it and we didn't do our jobs win. In the first half they ran it and we did our jobs and we had success so my thought process is either. You don't know how to coach not him but that there they came out in the second half they just go make place but what happened to the discipline. You had in the first half to do it and i don't understand the philosophy. I don't understand the answer when you they're gonna run it. Wouldn't it be better to just do your job so when you didn't think they were going to run it. You did your job an ad success when you knew they were going to run it. You didn't do your job because you wanna make plays isn't making plays doing. Your job baffling to me. A matter of fact. I gotta come clean that i hear more baffling stuff in texas and i have for in texans. Postgame press conferences. That i've heard from any team in my career playing it covering it talking about honest to god. I hear it every week from it is what it is to. I don't know why we're doing this but we made plays. We didn't make plays. We did this when bill said you know we got great guys on the team ant. Okay great guidance. Give me a fourth of one stop. I'm not asking you how great they are. We'll discuss that on a tuesday day off at a chance to really lead to a solid open-field tackle. They're right. I just the guy who didn't like making plays continuously in arizona so i don't understand that the press conferences and i know judge a team but but if this is really the thought process who's teaching it and coach who and who's playing it. We did our job in the first half when they ran the ball. We knew they were going to run it in the second half and we didn't do our job because we wanted to make plays so you only make plays when you're not doing your job. I don't understand romeo's answer. And if that's their philosophy no wonder they suck michael. Thomas actually said similarly but gave a better breakdown on what happened in the second half with the run defense. I'll play that and we'll see if it's really a number thirty six. Let's hear that guy's going hard. I saw continue to play very good. Run defense in the second half. But particularly on at the second touchdown touchdown drive to make it ten ten zero. We needed to get off the field on third down grades out for a second stop at run. It'll be third and long actually and we didn't get off the field and then you know you're playing against a team that has a good rushing it's tech and has two great your great running backs and they just they just kept getting to play the the downs extended and the drive extended it just kept getting opportunities and they finally scored and then that second hand alright last drive when special teams him down giving us giving us ourselves a chance to finally come back and win thank guys just they were going being in gaps but we just gotta make tackles we gotta interest at that point forty one carries two hundred thirty one yards. You go ahead and do the math. What that's average per carry. Now listen i once again. I understand what michael. Thomas is saying. I do i i i understand. I understand what he's saying. Did they played hard. Here's what i don't get. Why do we keep saying. Why do we keep making the excuse of we play here. Yeah i don't get everyone plays i said well. We played hard but we just can't make any place. We couldn't get off the field. We played hard but we couldn't get out to feed on third down and good running team. I told you this week that this was the best to some in the league. I told you that averaged five point six kerry. Yeah well guess. What when you can't get off on third when you go five point six on first down so you're basically at six yard gain. I've always said if i get five to six yards. On first down its first downs. The most important down in football you get the statistics you always see thrown on the on the on your tv third down conversions. Guess where you don't get a lot of first downs when your third and fourteen taken a sack. New line of scrimmage created by the defense to where they stop you now second and twelve. Then i get five yards in his third and seven once again. I can pressure you get a five yard completion catching tackle punt. So i understand. Listen i i get it but i can't. This is insanity. It's insanity to tell me every we played hard and we got good guys and good players on that point so hard that i have to use sixty two yards of the one sixty nine in the second half right okay so you can't play hard for sixty minutes. I know of michael thomson. I'm not dogging him but there comes a point in time when it when. It's the same groundhog day story every week. We i. you're telling me you can't fix it and you're second short like you mentioned. Is those short yards. It opens playbook to everything. That's win those teams can have those big shots and or just handed off and keep running right down if you want. Take your chance. You gotta you know against the texans on third in the yard. It's a pretty easy get for you. They're not getting five. Yesterday they could hand the ball off and get it. Yeah it just like. I said it's not personal. It's the fact that when you watch them if this happened twice. I'd say happened every team and nine times. You have many nine times. You've got to wins but even those winds those the other team success. Yeah so i just. It's absolutely baffling some of the answers. I hear and postgame press conferences. We played hard a who did find me a team for the most part and yesterday's games that didn't play hard but jack wires yesterday went out and played hard whoop de do they lost lost. It's a moral victory. He played hard. Everybody's got that moral victory than ever played hard. The through nine games have given up. Fifteen hundred yards rushing. That's a season for a good running back. Moshe here a little over halfway. i don't understand game. I don't get how you can tell me well. We we were good against the run in the first half. We did our job second half. We tried to make plays knowing they were going to run the ball and we didn't do our job and so they played better. I i would think it would be the. We're doing a great job so just keep doing what you're doing. They're lucky it was windy yesterday. Honestly because if it wasn't play action. Fake i can't imagine me yards and it was a hard watch yesterday but it's like i said it's groundhog day. With the analysis to it starts with physicality upfront. And they don't have it on either side of the ball. They wonder why people don't have the enthusiasm for them. And i just at some point in time. Where's nasty where he will. Where are you as a coach and a player so pissed that you just you play out of your skin and you have play out of your mind. I'm waiting for that moment when they play out of their mind and this is just. This is all a trickle down though. There's no nasty in anything they do. Nothing it sad. All right sports. Talk seventy hour number. Three next dr jeff whitsett whitsett vision dot com with vision dot com. I had i wanted. I was tired of squint. And i didn't want readers eyeglasses or contacts.

Salt time francesa's very. This is sean salisbury. Show five hour number three getting after it by would love to select the next general manager and head coach of the texans. I you can. And we're going to hear from urban meyer and a second about culture in the building and what matters by us. Trojans and garett louis we're going to get to you in just second trojans one again this weekend. I want to publicly congratulate my guy from saint pious grant canal. Who played his heart out doable. He moves for six to thirty way. Ueli starts to understand what goes on that. He's going to be a special player. And i'm so grateful to a mentioned. He was one of the most prolific passers in texas right. No no the most prolific passer n- texas high school history. So proud of him he he almost beat my trojans and quite frankly even though i'm a usc fan. I wouldn't have been to mad of grant. Donell would beat him but congrats to him. But you gotta go in. An urban meyer is on fox. And hold that. We're going to get to that after our callers. Okay josh but just to say this. Is it winning. Games is what we all talk about. I draw take an ugly win more than a pretty loss any day of the week but you also start to see certain wins. How certain teams have a way about them listen. Usc two losses led. They should have found a slow. Was one play. Well played well in the very end of the balls wobbling all over the place but play while and then they went okay. I'll take him but you start to look at the reason why they win or why they got to those positions and and what it takes. Listen i'm not saying that. now. I got one thing. Spread is done. But what's the offense. That lee mike lee. What do we call it with air raid. It's never won. A national title. Note has no. I'm just trying to think of the recent never want it would. Last year's lsu team qualifies a semi-arid also mixed with west coast and are not at all on models yes the little bit of everything the quote unquote air raid. So few teams. Just do the everybody's doing a little bit we'll cliff had to you gotta jet to so many i mean he ran the ball when he was ain't right and knows how important it is to run the ball in certain games now to right now and power running game not just to finesse running game right so it matters. But point is is an sc we used to be power and we we don't dominate the scrimmage fiscal on either side and the only reason i'm saying this in a leader urban myers you watch them guys on a kneel down on a kneel down situation they got in the gun and i thought he hit me the culture situation of they can't get under center they got they got in the shotgun to kneel down before half supposedly the more dangerous i thought to myself my gosh debris from bruce matthews to dan most part anthony demarcus out they'd be d- guarantee their their their heads one explode. It's great to have a version of everything right. I loved offenses. But there's gotta come a point in time like if the forever at the half yard line again in the lineup in the shotgun. I i will lose my frigging mind right. Yeah or dropped russ straight back instead of. Give him an option right. That's an another day but there's culture things go on that even in win and you can see the force through the trees right we can. We can see and we can look at liberty you could see regardless what hugh hugh freeze went through. He knows how to coach football. Yeah and he's going to get a bigger job and quite frankly must champs struggled inserts. You could see that that guy is gonna right and then there's just certain right. There's just certain things you can see no matter where urban meyer's went what he does in green utah. Florida ohio state. Whether you like is there against what arben about he. He knows how to win in the building right. Okay for all the periphery. So you can argue with me coaches and higher and this and recruiting cheating. We argue about all the schools okay. I'm just telling you he knows how to do it whether you like it or not win. Urban meyer goes to your school. You're going to win career so we'll get to what he said in a second. I want to give our callers a platform but even with and the reason i use them because urban he's always been tied the last couple of years to the trojans right we're to klay helton's going thank goodness cleveland keaton slovak a little gets pretty good wide receivers on the perimeter but the interior of toughness. Something's lacking and i here from usc. My buddies all the time who were offensive line or running backs. It's like it's different right right now. If we played notre dame guys physically in our regular rival game one of my buddies said oh we want notre dame and i put back on there said no. No actually not this time around right now. We don't we're to an over. We don't want any part of that physicality today we'll get to urban meyer and a second gear. Welcome in man. What's on your mind and a man. It as a two and seven team does it. Suck your way up to this morning and not seeing Yourself on the highlights. Very much for me. Because i'm a raider fan and we won again but it sucks for me being in houston rooting for the texans to win. But the reason why it doesn't suck is because this has been ground all year long if number four is not making a spectacular player. Jj's not making a spectacular sack you ain't getting highlights and nor do they deserve and they don't deserve them on national tv quite frankly well i guess further future man. I just had a quick five with this new rule. Change do you think it's in the best The texans best interests to bring in a coach and lose compensatory draft picks for the next few years or does that really emphasize Hiring and developing the right people to avoid that kind of to give up picks to get a coach correct. Why would i do that. If fair eric be enemies it's not giving up The new rule is if you develop a minority head coach. Yes you're talking. yes you're talking about. What they you develop them. You get a consideration you either get an extra draft. Pick her move up in the draft with the new. Cba and that they're agreeing to part of it is addendum to it that if you do that then you get and it says you know what the crazy thing about is. We shouldn't have to do this to train. And hire and give minorities and opportunity to be positioned to be hired as coordinators position coaches head coaches and general managers. We shouldn't have to do this. Should just be part of the higher in the best player and coach and general. Unfortunately we haven't given minority coaches the proper opportunity to move up through the ranks to have the opportunity to do it. So it's a good thing but it seems like man ozzie. Newsome eric be enemy. But in the eric enemy case you don't you just go. After the best coach airbnb may very well be the best coach. So i'm just gonna hire a minority coach or hire a train them just because i want an extra pick a trainer because you know they're good and they deserve the opportunity and then you hire the best right now. There's no better assistant to higher than eric. Peony he's african american. Okay great but in. Do i believe you need to bring bring more. African americans inner minorities and give them an opportunity to learn in the front office yet absolutely. It's a shame we have to get to that point right now. We should have already been at that point. It's twenty frigging twenty but we are and if that's the case to get compensatory picks garrett thank you for the call then i get it. That's the case but right now the best candidates and guess who's been through all the training from assistant all the way up being db's in their position so absolutely. But i put it this way. If you thought that somebody was a better coach and you just doing it. Just to get a compensatory. Pick well to me. That's not fair to the person who you should hire the best candidate right now. Eric be enemy by all accounts is as good as it's not the best candidate there is out. There is an assistant coach to hire but yes with the new rule. I thought he meant you had to go get a compensatory pick to kansas city. No think it's helping kansas city by getting you're giving them netcom pick. Is it worth going that. I think that was more and the truth is campaign. Here's the thing about is kansas city. You don't have the choice you can hire them and put another tidal go. But if eric vietnamese gonna you hired him as a head coach. Kansas city so yes sin. If in the process of the natural evolution of hiring a coach that eric who happens to be minority. African american comes here. And then you get your bring somebody else in and develop in. Kansas city in kansas city gets more compensatory. Pick for god bless them. There is absolutely no question. We need to do a far better job at creating opportunities for guys to move up in the ranks to be front office guys and presidents in general manager. I think we all know that my point was. It's a shame that in pro sports we actually. We actually have to give you pick to hire the best candidate or to train the best cabinet. It's the best candidates. I don't care if he's hispanic if he happens to be ron rivera or if he happens to be all those whose hawaii i mean the best. Hire the best train them but we definitely need. Open the door listening. If you're not doing a good job of it. We got to create opportunities for that and we should so. There's no doubt the deal is whether he's black white or any other color. Eric happens to be african american. Eric be enemies a damn good coach and more than qualified to be the head coach but if in the process of giving people opportunities you get a compensatory pick. You'll take it right. Yeah you will take it all right. Real quick lewis you hold. I wanna i wanna give you. I don't want to cut you off. And i and like i said this compensatory pick i think it's a we're headed in the right direction to make people aware of start training people and giving them an opportunity to be coordinators given opportunity to be front office guys in general managers. They deserve the chance and if they're not good enough you fire you hire somebody else like you would in any situation but in order to get to the situation you got actually go through the ranks. Something that the guy here didn't do accents. He should system. Gm pro point all those things that we're asking all of our guys to do and give an african americans and minorities the opportunity to do that which we should eric enemies going to be a head coach whether the texans hire or not. He is going to be a head coach next year. It'd be are lost. We don't we're gonna come back and we're going to hear from urban meyer. We're going to hear from lewis and our callers at seven one. Three two one two five seven hundred talking about culture in the building players coaches and how you basically build a winner. And he's qualified to talk about it. Trust me sports. Talk seven ninety. John salisbury show continues on sports. Talk seven thousand nine hundred ninety all for your home teams who sports talk seven hundred. Roll along here. Our number three going fast. Frustration makes us furious. I did there and say i know you. Did you see furious. I've seen a my favorite movies. That kid i for some reason. I wanted to the super bag. The toyota supra learned was pretty sweet giants after our turn like thirteen. You don't want that car. Probably not not a lot and as you grow probably not a lot of room. This crazy car driven fit nine day and it was like what is that. It looks kinda cool. I would never drive cars not bad. It was a super. I guess back there. There's a lot of cars. I like that. I just can't fit in. But they would never limbo. ferraris. I've seen around here easily. People are just bored and just eight. Let's go drive this thing or what. But there's been a lot. Tell you this new chevy corvette now. Looks like a damn lambeau saying frigging. I sat in one at dead classic. Chevy i'm telling you right now you're like This you feel like you're in the cockpit of a plane. I was saying to my brother-in-law who has an older corvette like man. The new ones look like an italian supercar. Zero to sixty in a blink to now pretty awesome because i like speed and i like the sound right. I don't like speed. i like to go. Fastow's at red bulls my speed or five hour energy. Don't drink driving exactly heavy foot. Admit especially if it's like a red one or one that's just green and yellow. When you can just say right you're asking. Oh yeah that's exactly right. Let's get to louis lou. What's up man. How you doing doing this morning. Good sir how are you Right on a coating on the east side east. I things i wanted thing. We and i'll season we practice only tekla yesterday. man. I saying from the everything appropriately. The doesn't have so many miss tackles if they go to the game room this morning and look at the film. There'd be embarrassed day rottweilers. They was position it was like he was allowed yesterday a louis. Let me ask you this when you watch these guys and i. It's it's a problem that this is a problem every single for nine straight games. They've had there been a problem and so it tells me it's either not being taught writer. They're not paying attention to detail. I they not fantastic decay on because it's not only coach them in the right spot. I like like yeah like on their last page read. There's no way he like. He just do his body out a lot of time. And you see it a lot to louis. Thank you and you make a great point. Thanks for the call. Man about poor tackling. Is you how many times you see guys now. We got a bunch of guys leap and you know what they do because they go head down for a shutdown and the guys just say i know he's gone low so we'll jump over and here's the problem. Though on the one to at the last run that that went out of bounds is while you missed tackles to be able to break contain in that situation where you get outside the you get outside leverage. You can't listen if you don't do anything else in football you got a four help inside the best play. They made yesterday. Defensively was oddly. Enough a corner coming in hargraves on a blitz and making the ankle tackle in the backfield. Now the one. I'm talking about pressure and sewing it up in the back. That was one of the better defensive plays. They've made a just can't keep getting hammered. I will say it was nice to not watch them. Give up more than ten points. But it wasn't a pretty easy ten. They played hard. They did play hard and they didn't get the cove is what we think. Listen we got teams all around the country from south carolina with three open college football jobs already and the seasons still going utah state. That was utah. State right South carolina and i'm losing my mind on. There's one other one that's open got that's been fired during the season and i can't remember who it is but there's an interim coach there it will conduct but there's three right now and the nfl. There's going to be a half a dozen more than likely things right. And so when you're talking about the texans you can talk about teams. The maybe even have coaches. They're wondering well will he. Last here's what urban meyer bowling green. He won got the utah job he won got the florida job. He won a national championship or two. Did he went to their. Where already wants to okay. And then he goes to ohio state and he's one so he's at three now right. So here's a guy that i don't care what your what's your thought. Process is on whether you like urban meyer or not. He's now on fox. Obviously key is probably the most wanted and desired casting coach. There is any big college opening their rights and he's he's been out long the heat he's still fresh and the last member you have him aside from the off the field and he the fact that he wins and he keeps winning. He's gonna leave at some point because something's coming. He's only fifty six. He's coaching yes. He's a coach by heart. While the broadcasting's fine you gotta know that when he goes like. I think they're on site this week at ohio state. I think they're the fox broadcast their pregame. Show is that is in the horseshoe because indiana and get a load of this indiana's number ten in the country. Playing great football. Starting three touchdown underdogs against ohio state three. So i don't know man that's going to be a tempting bedford. Indiana may be able to hang around on this ohio state thing but with that in mind. Urban meyer is coach and if the sometimes you just got offer guy whatever you want to offer him i'm i'm just saying the texans anywhere and see if he'll bite and if he turns down unwanted coach i have one hundred myers coach and against sooner than later now. Here's what he said on the fox. I think this the game of the halftime part of it. I can't remember would say. I saw it but i can't remember if i saw pregame or halftime of the game. But they're studio. Show with liner. And brady quinn reggie bush rob stone is the host. Here's what herman meyer said about. Culture in a building and what has to be done in. What can't be done every time. I've had a team struggle every time it's fallen one of three categories number one. There's some trust issue. The players don't trust the coach. The coach don't trust the players or awful. When the don't trust each other number two it really think about it's called a dysfunctional work environment. Reggie and that's that where the expectations are very high. But we don't work hard. I've been here before coach and the coach has to be real clear with this team. Say wait a minute. That's can lead to frustration anger disappointment because we want to win a championship. I've got news guys. We're not working hard so quick. Stop with the expectations. If your your work must succeed or equate your expectations. That's a good environment. And the last one is real obvious. You got a selfish team man. You got problems on your team. Football is unselfish sport. That means you got to do the nasty then. Musoma running back. I gotta go protect my quarterback. Yeah that you don't always get to carry the ball. Sometimes you have to run down and kickoff twenty two miles an hour thirty yourself into someone come and fifteen miles the other way. That's not fun. Why would you do that because you love your team and your team so when you hear. Lsu penn state walgreens struggling stop with the bad players. I get sick of hearing. It's not the players. And i don't think it's coaches but there's something wrong. Lift the hood find out. One of those. Three things is usually the reason. And in some cases all three are a problem in some cases all three are problem. He made the point about selfish. Football players or self cokes. A selfish coach is one that makes you do everything that he says. I'm talking about like an offense. It's not working. he says. Like for instance when lamar was there. If gregg roman was selfish she would just not the way. I coach and what he did and defenses are playing better some but he said we're gonna change this and they have right and andy reid and he reads a west coast. Offense guy. pat comes in. Well we're going to do with. Pat does well and what. I do well and combine them. That's that's called an unselfish moving ego out of the equation. Take you got to have some pride. but ego. Can't be the all encompassing reason. Why you're doing what you're doing. And he made the point about about when you work ethic has to exceed and or equate be equal to you know what the You think watch who you think you are. And if it isn't dan it becomes a problem and the listen the one thing. I'm when i'm telling you. I'm just use them on a smaller scale. But when i'm training quarterbacks and we got receivers out there and it's a grind and it's on sunday morning yesterday and you played friday night and they're putting their time in and listen and i'm we're we're going over what went on in the game friday night or run plays that they run that the listen even in the offseason the grind of doing the same. It's monotonous it's boring and it's honest that's where you that's where you get better amen. Eight it is. You're tired of it. It's the same thing you're hearing the same thing. But then when the pressure hits the next year on friday night and put your foot in the ground and throw a slant into the first window because you are urging on your drop and then it hits you when you're deciding tapping to me as a player. I mean anyway can remember all the lessons in baseball and it would get monotonous and you hate. It was like every wednesday night. And tuesday. Thursday night amend the batting cage for an hour and a half the coach. And then you hit that one ball and then the guy bus you on the outer half of the plate and you drive your front shoulder to right center and hip to the gap and when you're standing on second base. You think they'll work. It helped work. Yes exactly and you do. We've all had moments as a player. I see it as a coach. When i'm coaching and i said i said i promise you at some point in time it's gonna rear in in duress because of this one other guys are sleeping on sunday morning it will pay off and there's nothing better to me. I mean it when a kid throws for four hundred wins and you get that text on friday night. Which i get back. Okay and did you win. We want boom okay then. I'm happy for them. Because i know the grind izhar urban myers talking about listen. You think a five star recruit wants to run down on special teams. No you know what he wants to. He wants to get the glory and the quarterback or the running back or the pass rusher and guess what as a freshman nearby alabama's got sixty of them. Yeah and that's a big reason. Say says he does is to get that buying like okay. I know this guy is willing to do whatever it takes for the team. Right and mc. I've mentioned this to you before. When when marcus allen went to. Usc is a freshman coming off five touchdowns in the championship and five gb ram through. Did it all charlie white. was there well. Hence we know how good he was at his. Se running back. One is trophy. Marcus had to play fullback and block for his ass. Home broke his nose block and john put him back in. There had to change his face mask why he was going to teach them how to be even tougher than he already was. Well spring ford couple of years. Guess who is is trophy in is the first two thousand yard rusher doing those monotonous things that. I'm sure at times marcus. One looking dude. I just came off five touchdowns star the un star here because number twelve in front of ya better player and you are right now bingo. He wins the heisman. Marcus khoza winston. So there's an urban meyer change the course of your team. And that coach we see dabble has it. Notre dame looks like this year. They finally grasped it. Doesn't they look different to me. Alabama's had it. Lsu had it last year where you were. Players do an unselfish things to for the betterment of a team and coaches coaching it properly and players buying in and trusting each other. There's so many but if one's missing it's tough it's tough just like you say if you can hit a fastball and all of a sudden you get drafted in the first round but can never hit a curve eventually. Guess what's going to catch up. Yeah exac- eventually it does and so you better have something else to lean on like bryson daesean both past weekend. He can't hit a frigging farewell. We'll guess don't win right. And when the days when he hits it three hundred and eighty and he hits fairway. You probably wins. Because he's got one hundred yard shot closer than everybody else. But when you don't you make bogeys and take sixes and and miss. And then dustin johnson hits about five yards shorter than you but hidden greens and making putts. Wins going away so in a team sport urban meyer's right matter of fact if you were smart even if you didn't want to hire them if you're comic they're call him in say i mean at this point. I wouldn't even be mad at hiring her. Meyer considering the names. You make your promise. If if i'm just using clay but let's say us job was even you would if you hire urban meyer. We will be in the national title within three years. Guaranteed you absolutely will. If the texans higher urban meyer they will win the division within eight within with maybe the following year within two years they win the division. I promise you know first round draft pick because you know what he knows how to build a culture and he knows how to get the most out of his players maximizes the word and he doesn't sports talk seven hundred. Sean sounds we shall biscuit stay right there. Much more to discuss urban meyer's impressive. There should be a long line waiting on him. But you better have a big brinks truck as well shots. Osbour- show dr sean salisbury on sports. Talk seven ninety where astros in rockets play and real texans talk. Let me make this point before. I get to biscuit an mc. And i were talking during the break. And i'm gonna tell you guarantee this is without without even me even i don't have to even qualify this i but i don't have to the best coach in the coaching world who's available. That wants to coach again. I believe i believe he wants to coach. I know bill cowers good. But bill's been out a long time. Tony dungy's not gonna coach. He's been out awhile. The best coach at high school college or nfl level right now this available to be a coach. He's the best coach in the world. Right now that you could hire is urban meyer better than no disrespect today. Bill or joe. Brady or or eric be enemy. Urban meyer is the best coach in the world. That's not does not have a job right now. Period the only did what twenty two and two at utah. The utah was utah. They really had anything great. You know they're still just loyalty the only coach who can even get close to the grace of all time little currently in college. Football is a reminder and. That's well obviously after nick. Sabin save is the leader right now myers only one who could challenge that. He's all time record in college. Football's a head coaches one. Eighty seven thirty. Two right does not thirty to gain an understanding. What i understand what i'm telling you. The best coached at the texans could hire his urban. Meyer now you say well. I just please. Don't be the guy who says. Nfl coaches don't work in college. Matt rhule's doing a pretty decent job and please don't be that guy because times change all the time. 'cause those same people who tell me college coaches don't work in the nfl or the same guys who told me mahomes. And those type of shotgun. Quarterbacks can't work in the nfl present you. Kyla murray i present to you. Joe burrow i present to you trevor lawrence i present to you pat mahomes. Who happens to be the best. Save the well because nowadays. Guess what guess what's not different. We do the same things in the nfl. We do in college matter of fact there are. Nfl coaches that are going to college campuses. Learning their system as he used to always be the other way around. You go to nfl and they'd the clinic and you'd go in there and the the college coaching staff or go to kansas city. And they still do all over the place and went is not there on your allowed and sit down with andy reid staff and walked through. What you do it's also reverse there are. Nfl coaches lincoln riley. Right now and have been. They want to talk about the passing game. I'm just telling you. And so save the well. He wouldn't succeed in the nfl. Because if urban meyer coaches the tech matter fact you want to save face quickly. I love eric me but if you could get urban meyer at nine million. A year for six years. Hire him yesterday. Yeah period and to shawn. Watson will play great. He'll hire a great staff. And i got news for you. They'll win the division by the time. Twenty twenty three hits at the latest. I'm talking about and that's no first round pick this year. He will find. I'm just telling you well. It's it's different but at no time in our lives as nfl and college closer together. Yeah everything we do. Salary approach offenses defenses athletes. It ain't very far. Listen you played in alabama clemson. You're about four months away from being rookie of the year with the big boys. So save it. I'm not the urban meyer thing. While i would love while i would love to have a guy like eric banning me i don't know if you get urban meyer but if i was there i honest to god would have called her of and agent the second bill. O'brien was fired. We know he's interested. I he'd be interested in nfl job. He was interested in browns. Listen listen you call urban meyer up say urban you. Can you also get to decide. Help the gm with the groceries. We'll hire a gm. We'll pay you jon gruden. Type money's eight to ten million bucks a year right ano- by the way we got what you'd love to have which you have and you know what a winner quarterback we. We assume it's got the same day that he had in college. He has now with the coach. Who can bring out. I'm telling you right now. All these other talk if you really want to change your program immediately go get even meyer but an answer please. Like i said save the willies. College goes i don't care you're some coach like i said i mean. Do you think people would. Obviously it's a bad taste because bill. O'brien came directly from college. He'd been in the nfl force but then again. If it's a bad taste you collect be mad at bill. O'brien for all the stuff. He did wrong. He did win. Four division championships. This'll urban meyer's your coach against the the the kansas city change. They're not they don't last twenty four they don't they don't collapse they would have found a way. They may have made close but they would. If they would've found. And i'm just telling you. Now i don't know if you can get him or they would have the they would pay him. The net assistant coaches aren't being the lead dog right now. You know he. He's the man i get it. But if you really wanna fix listener of meyer. He's right on the cultural change if you're a if you think you're a sacred cow but your fat cat. Yes what happens gone. Even he would run them right out of the building and you don't have to like his personality. 'cause i got news for you. Urban doesn't care. No he doesn't all right. Let's get to biscuit biscuit. What's up man. Hey brother sean you know we. We kinda disagree. A lot of things. the raiders. The almost had a fight over that. But man you spot on whatever meyer we. I don't disagree with a lot of things. We disagree with something we get after it. Yeah yeah but if you if you watch the fox so when that man speaks is like this spot on and and i know people are saying. 'cause i i think the issues people say well saving into good. Do good in the pros. He's doing great and cops but urban meyer has a different tiffany than saving. And that's my opinion. I think the mayer has that right temperament that he should do it. And and what are you saying about the expectation level. And a work ethic. That's my. that's the millennials. that's man. I'm having an issue with my son right. Of course millennials in a nutshell. You want me. They all think they going to get to be successful. You know all the kids. I coach so we always end of the season. Like what are you seeing yourself for fifteen years. Nobody said You know we're going garbage truck. Everybody was going to be a doctor lawyer. I'm alluvial nearby told me we'll ask me what i was to do that. I was going to be here at this station on a microphone. What happened because you put your tires. Exactly right you put your time with through. The pecking gear right and be a doctor but i haven't took. Sat's yeah i'm going to be a doctor. But i don't have the grades to get into college. That's a problem. Yeah they give them away right. Hey let me ask you about this biscuit. You talked about nick. Sabin think about this so even with nick's personality imagine if the quarterback was drew brees like it was supposed to be in in my right. We imagined just that player and no disrespect to culpepper but remember culpepper chain. His his knee was coming up to that visual of him dropping back in the pocket and his niece still wasn't healthy. that'd be imagined. Nick may still be back in alabama. But i would imagine the franchise opportunities to be successful would have changed if nick would have had drew brees right. I believe right. But i i'm with you. One hundred percent on demeanor now behind clark or behind closed. Doors durban meyer. We'll make sure you're doing it right dress you but on the out yes. You're exactly right. There's there's a different approach. But even nick sabin when he goes on and does broadcasting has a different calmer for you ever seen i mean. I know you've watching biscuit. There's a calmness of the bottom line is great coaches can coach at any level. And you and. I both know that. What are you talking with. The key is leader. Yep that's what you're looking for. You're looking for leader man. No question absolutely couldn't agree more biscuit. Great stuff man. I just you could do a lot worse. There comes a point time. What is your commitment level to winning as a front office as an ownership right. Well that had the team president that i'm making it seem like it's not that big of a priority. Well let's hear from him next. We come back. I just it to me. It permeates down. If there's not a commitment way up here it's the same in universities. If the commitment from the athletic director president say just get people in the stands. We don't care you probably won't win right eventually. It'll catch up to ya. You may win a minute. I'm talking about sustained everywhere. Guys like saving michigan state lsu alabama. Utah bowling green utah state and guess wherever guess what happens now dabbles create the same thing if he goes alabama. So guess what he's gonna do yes. He will leadership they know how to lead men and they know how to lead people and manage things and there is a difference. You manage tasks khalid people some misunderstanding. They think you manage people know as the ceo you lead and you don't tell them how to do it. You show them. That's urban meyer. Sports talk seven ninety. We'll come back and discuss. Is that here mc. I want to tell you about where it's at for your shoes. That is with new balance at new balanced greater houston uptown and the woodlands. The two locations get over there today. Start your week off right by seeing the fit specialist getting you into the perfect fit. I was doing a lot of walking around this week. In and guess what i had on my feet when we were doing that.

Well customer service and putting that right shoe on your foot take care of you from the moment you walk in the door. Get to either location today. Both of them fantastic. Fantastic people there to take care of you uptown and the woodlands. It is new balance greater houston sports. Talk seven hundred home of the rockets astros and the best lineup in houston. Sports no back to sean salisbury. Sports talk seven ninety. Would i say i wanted to break. Then i say so. The texans from office guy. Oh yeah rick. Not interrupt for just tweeted out. The saints are expecting drew brees to miss some time to fully hill. Apparently he's having moran. And he has a rib contusion. They're expecting some cartilage damage. Okay and he looked. He looked banged up. And it's unfortunate now. Let me say that. I'm glad you brought that up. I tweet that was a bush league horrible which which ended up the penalty ended up leading to a touchdown it was hit. Hit him in the shoulder. Pad moved his body to the side so he had the ball. And that's it was a and. I'm sorry i'm sorry. Brees got hurt on the play. But that's a tackle. It was a legal professional football. Hit and it was a bush and they waited a second then called. it was horrible. Frigging i don't know if what amounted the game. But it mattered on that series. It was just a terrible terrible terrible. Bush league overprotection all that call and even if you're a saints fan i don't care you can't look me in the face and say that you thought that call was right. It was it's unfortunate. Drew got hurt. Drew was hurt last year. They went five in oak. Ken james winston. Get him some wins because they're going to need it. Because i can promise you. They don't want to go on the road and play in green bay or somewhere in seattle in january. I can promise you that with that the way that offense is set up. You don't want now tell you this that the the backup guy can probably through the win a little bit better the drew brees especially because you if you let him do his thing drew brees going to kill you. But i don't wanna hear anybody tell me that was a cheap hit. Drew brees. No if they can't find the guy was a legal hit that they made illegal because the bush was four illegal especially when his head was up. He saw what he hit. He got his helmet. Nowhere near him. He tackled him in and actually in the middle of the fall. Down moved to the side so it wouldn't fall as whole body. I can't sack a quarterback. That's exactly which you've got about the size of a bullseye to hit and even if you hit that a little too physical on time with call a penalty on that to bush league week and i'm sorry for drew brees. Now the saints are going to be tested again. Teddy bridgewater got himself big money last year because the way he played in five games it'll be coming about you know what james wanted. An opportunity to rebuild himself. Here you go brother on a good team playing with with a maybe the best play caller in the world good team. Let's see what you got and you want to get paid. This is perfect because guess who isn't starting to quarterback next week take some hill. Yeah neither one of them are so. It's a perfect chance right now. You know this was brought to my attention. I heard this yesterday. But i brought it to our attention again. Now set this up for this. Yeah this this is friday. The texans were just talking about how they're run. And you had the trickle down effect and everything goes the presence of the teen longtime press. The team is jamie route. I do not know him. The nice enough guy not going podcasts. He's written a book and what's his new book called the book. It's about leadership or something to do with you know. I can't remember the name of the book. Another southbound i apologize. i don't know what it is. I know if i went to his twin game plan leadership playbook for continued business success. I knew it was a leadership in the dirt. The winning game plan. I knew it said something to do with leadership right so go ahead. People wonder about the texans motivation to win thinking that the front office is only truly cares about dollars that go into their pocket. Well when you have comments like this about the team and they're asking for things this is what opens you up to this and you could not have this come at a worse time. Here's what he said. When i first came to houston every everywhere i went. People said hey jamie houston texas. I don't know columbus. Ohio is like but if you win though come and you lose. They won't come and that's the way it works. I was like well. I'm gonna i. I'm gonna do about that right. We're going to decouple on field success with with support for our business. Fortunately for us worked from day one we'd sold out every game we've ever played. We have a wait list of over thirty thousand. By contrast to houston oilers led the national football league for the most blackouts meaning. They did not sell their games out. And so there's we've just operated very differently than what's been here before that is brutal to listen to for me because you're talking about equating the texans to the oilers. It's so tone. Deaf first of all people have sold out and have a thirst for football because they're terrified that the order the order situation happened again. That's part of the reason why you sell out. The orders didn't sell out for years because they already were on the way out the door and everybody knew it and everybody wanted them out the door because adams was the worst but the whole i mean like that that tells me all you need to know i. I know that you want your business to be successful. Which is fine but if that was your motivation was to get to work. It doesn't matter if we win or lose we're just gonna to make money. That's why people don't believe in you and that hasn't you have no real. You have no idea what the fan base feels about your team. Your tone your clueless. Here's what happens especially when you're two and seven. Nobody wants to hear it right. Here's another thing that happens. Is you get to a point. Where if you want that conversation. You have that with behind the scenes site. Don't let us right. You talked to the public. And how would it work. Better simply saying listen. Our number one goal here has always will be to win championships. Now we haven't got one. We haven't got one yet but our goal every day. When i sit in those meetings and we're we're building selling my book in leadership is to win championships when you in championships. They will come and that will show up. The money comes to that and the money will be there. The goal is not to just sell jerseys and put people in the stands and put product on the field and or in the front office. That doesn't win but because it's texas in its football. We built it. Because mr mcnair built it to a respected organization where now people go and and we don't win but damn people love to come watch us play. I will turn away. We're what oilers were popular. They had no problem selling on games for years. Yes what i can tell them about this. You want to take you to a bunch of cities that sell out games. But their players aren't that their team's not good. There's a lot of those in the nfl. There's a lot of places. Cleveland did it all the time. They're not gonna win this year. But joe burrow's team's gonna keep showing up right. They've been the one franchise that doesn't show up right. But i'm talking about now show up. Yeah why because. They think that they are going to start winning. And what did they always seddon in cincinnati. They didn't believe there's a commitment to the front office. They diminish scouting staff. They didn't have enough. What's marvin lewis for years. Because he was the head coach of the league. They were a cheap paid on the cheap with their front office. People which you knew. Why is fans you get to the point. They're like they're not committed to winning so finally outweighed the fact. Why go now they got borough and you hope that this new coach and the rest is convinced them that it's time to go back to old paul brown mr brown. Mike's dad and say we're going to win again right. Yeah that's that's the philosophy you want. I know. Let me tell you if i say pittsburgh. Newland san francisco kansas city. You're to go through and you know that you know we. Kansas city was struggling. Guess what was still stands. Seventy thousand people ciaran. The people were paid the sometimes and and been a long time since dawson was the priority. Right get to the place kind of like texas and loose and then all the sudden they found this mahomes kid who now we got this head coach and he would get to the playoffs and lose. Been to the super bowl and philadelphia. And then guess. What all of a sudden bingo. Now we win seventy seventh. Guess what's going to happen if you start. Losing seventy seven thousand are still gonna show up. 'cause you built a culture of winning. You have a bad right this. Even this makes you question. Dan fouts told me this years ago. If you can't dazzle them with brilliance baffling with bulls. Okay the kansas city chiefs now are dazzling number brilliant. If all of a sudden they struggled once people are going to say it's okay they can baffling for a year. Because you know what i know. They're committed to winning the problem. Here is that you peed in our face and tell us it's raining. You're admitting what everybody doesn't want to hear that the money and what. You're getting at the The jerseys shown up and buying hotdogs and being there and we've got thirty thousand people wanna guess what you can't good for you right right but you know what keep going forward twelve or just getting to the playoffs and losing the eventually smart people and now with covert situation and you bet. I'd be careful to put that. I'd be careful to throw that out. There have those conversations behind closed sports. Talk seven hundred coming back. Our number four interesting conversation about winning urban meyer stuff. You can find that stuff up on sports. Seven hundred dot com blog too because well. There's a reason why he wins. He's committed to it and if you're not committed to it you cannot sustain it and it starts with the guy who signs the checks sportstalk. Seven ninety whitsett vision dot com. Dr jeff wits. It's my guy. I was tired of having to put on glasses. Our readers and i saw see them pretty good vision but pretty good. It's not what i wanted. Excuse me that's like getting to the playoffs.

The plan the plan was i wanted blended laic that he suggested instead of doing too is which i ask for. He said no. No how about this. You don't wanna wear readers glasses or contacts. I got this.

I know because i was also a customer whitsett vision dot com whitsett vision dot com former. Nfl quarterback needs longtime friend. Very this is the. Sean sounds very show sports. Talk seven hundred going to get to the guest line here in just a second If you were frustrated yesterday lack of plays offensively and the lack of a a a defense to tackle the stop. Another two hundred yard rushing game between the deepest backfield. How you didn't know they were going to run. The football game long is beyond me. But that's neither here nor there but what is here just a just a little bit a reminder and maybe the front office is listening or worse i know i know but just to remind. Let me set this up. Game looked over. Which should know games ever over and that josh allen taking them back down go down go ahead and a seesaw battle. Back and forth kyla moore. Who i've told you a million times it's going to be an mvp in this league scramble around the play a couple of plays before it was like a ten second play. They've got no time outs left. Did he scrambles again a big play and then he hits a ball to the left sideline they get out of bounce. So they're down to a play and they're out of field goal range in a field goal. Quite frankly doesn't win it because they're down four or five. That was a four points at the time. What was the score at the time. See twenty six to thirty eight twenty down four right okay so kyla murray gets his scrambling business and well. This is an all. Texans fans fell down. Probably like they like go on my guile What's the guy's name in. Oh lamont sanford and son grabbed the tickets running out on me. I imagine it was all sanford and son for those. Who knew what i'm talking about when when this happened off out of the pocket seconds drew and that was i think i in eagle on the call if i'm not mistaken and another thing for those that didn't get to see it. He not going to your right. That seems well not seems is easier for writing a quarterback. He was fallen into the sideline to his left about to run out of room and not only was able to get to the end zone. It's one thing to just get it somewhere. It's another thing to make the perfect trajectory throw with three dudes around the guy with the big pause to goes up and just flat out muslim and grab the ball. Now wait till it got into. His body went up and snatched it with his hands because he has the earned even in a hail mary with hopkins. A ball doesn't hit. The ground legalized theft that arizona. Got this guy from texas for a second round. Pick the collective world in the football world. Like i guarantee their thought wasn't what a great comeback thought was. All the texans are so stupid for doing this right and then what a great comeback into rerun right. It's not going to end back. And what a. Great throw for murray. The catch was spectacular but to buy time and almost step out of bounds. Going to your left and to make that throw and it was the perfect hail mary throw and then and hopkins goes up and does what he always has finishes with the football and his hands our guest house guy. You pry familiar with sags calling from chicago. What's four degrees. It's not four degrees. I think it's supposed to be like forty eight today. So let's guys how's it going. Good how are you doing. what's up. Oh nothing i just you know just just just made me call in. Because it's just like what's the worst thing that happens in houston this weekend. You gotta play just heard roaming of cornell and deck easterby just becoming the team in houston is that james harden wanna now. Is that russell westbrook going on there. You got out at the right time. What's going on here. Let me tell you something. Did you leave when it was groundhog day. Still is did gone to hell. All you need is richard dreyfuss and bill.

I don't know maybe he's going to end up with your bulls who the hell knows who knows harden westbrook gone can't win a game there is a chance. Romeo cornell stays and jack easterby is going to be running the team other than that. Things are awesome here. How about chew things are going good. Things are going good. I just know i. We talked about the fact. That jack gonna take all this power and and run with it. And he's doing more than running he's how he may be the next head coach as well could be. We've seen him acquire he's done drills with wide receivers alzheimer matter of fact if if he gets the job as the head coach. I'm going to join you. Say i'd leave to. I don't know what's headed west to scottsdale to the warm gulf weather. So i'll come you for good meals and see in chicago but no if jack easterby names himself. General manager and head coach.

After this matter of fact we need toilet paper here for a different reason at eight. Four so i mean if you guys want to send hard enough here i mean. I'm sure we can send your life. Just send a stick or something. Yeah we'll just send us an apple in a roadmap we in this city like to give guys away for nothin' so just sent an apple in a roadmap will be happy no prob down our best pizza or something to make sure it's thick crust to from donald's it'd be fine or malnati's whoever you want to send it from little take it fair enough. Good all right we miss. We miss you stay. Stay with your man sakes. That's adam sagar. Yup he couldn't wait. He couldn't resist calling in to get a dig in cutty. I mean at better for this has been like we keep talking about thinking about like this has been the worst year of houston my life and this includes a year. The astros were one game away from playing the world series again. This has been the worst year of my life as a houston. Sports fan voted right everything. Yeah i mean literally the only hope right now is the astros the only thing going well and they had a losing record in the sixty game regular season last year and they had everything go wrong. They did play for the world series. And they're about to lose george springer. Yeah they're going to come out and don't have ver- lander they're still the biggest story right. They're going to be next year to win the division which is unbelievable. And i i'm serious. I'm it's november the sixteenth. And i know that my thing is baseball. Heartburn counting the days i need it back in my life because the only thing cleanse my palate is usually. Please don't let spring training like not. We're not allowed to go. Please don't please don't work the weather on a florida all that great weather. Please don't let this prevent us from going in person to spring training. Don't do that this time around about the mt curious. As you mentioned it's been just wants to get worse or are we going to start saying that. There's this hour on the team. It's a sports antique her always matt. Thomas curses everything. So i got on this past season. He's around the rockets enough. He called their games. D'antoni mike was guy. Mike's out so you're blades. James about blaming it on matt thomas sits. Let's get to ride ride. What's up and i was just listening to some of the Talk about cleveland. Not running the ball and just collar. Murray's how important is collar. Murray second year being good and not just a flash in the pants like a lot of these guys come out read option. You gotta get a is. He proved himself. That may be the best short quarterback coming out way more than baker. Mayfield and that franchise ryan. Thanks for the call. Answer that i could tell you now and baker mayfield's we're still trying to decide if he's a franchise guy but they line they like him in cleveland. The friendly and they do now. There's some fans who want more from it but and they're six and three. So they're they're playing lesson. There's not ten quarterbacks in the league you would you would the cuyler. Murray put the and go through a shortlist guys today if i said i'm building my team for the next seven to ten years kind of murray's analyst short shortlist say i told you i two years ago when he was playing before he went into his final year before he was drafted. We even on this show. I said he should play baseball. First round pick five tool player and then all of a sudden. I started at the of the season i watched. I would watch games and i finally went back and chose three or four games. I want to go back and watch him to see. If i'm missing some and i miss something because instead of sale fourth round then you start to watch. Ooh whoa whoa arm. Those capable people kept talking about durability count because murray was never beat up. The worst thing happened to him when he came up was transferred schools. He's to get skinny and he gets small dead. I went back and watch it. Not only and i said it on this show and you remember and i said it. I said they need to trae. Josh rosen tomorrow cliff and you go get you go. Get connery now. And you'll never look back. I think he's going to be an mvp and league. Not forget short quarterbacks. For i don't care if he's six four five nine the guy's a playmaker. He will win a division. He may win that damn division this year. He doesn't lose their. It's like we talked about coaches dna. Everywhere he goes he wins high school college and he's got he hasn't been on the field two full years and he's already got them in first place in the division that divisions got great teams all of them flaws. That's exactly right. And you know what great quarterbacks can overcome flaws assegai and seattle and he might have the best his. I'm telling you they have. They don't have a great defense right but they have good enough player to five years from now. You'll be talking about watson mahomes you're not getting to the fifth guy matter. I've said it all your to give me marie or lamar jackson. I said after post. Mvp for lamar jackson. I've been saying ear if you said draft one or the other one who you take and right now. I'm taking kyla murray. I said at the beginning of your. And i like lamar jackson. Kylie's better passer period coming back. Sports talk seven ninety yes. He is special in arizona's and cliffs great clips great for him and it's the greatest thing for cliff cliff would have gone someplace. That didn't implement what he did. Combine cuyler did. It may be different story. It's the best of both worlds. And he's gonna keep his gig and get a new contract because of it too good thing to have sports talk seven ninety john salads berry show continues on seven ninety and continues in your own say alexa play sports. Talk seven ninety on iheartradio talk seven hundred ninety s going through. Mcu mentioned about cuyler. Murray just to put a bow on this conversation with him his sack totals last year. Forty eight led the league and he's under he's got thirteen through nine games so so through nine games right so let's say he gets to ten more twenty three per year really good county. We asked the shawn watson much. Somebody somebody tell me again about calories durability apparently that have played all the time yeah damn near every. Snap man spectacular. Play that'll be one for the highlight reel for a long time going to his left across his body and makes the perfect throw while the catch will be the one we talk about the thrill the throw was putting the only position that you had a chance to get it and hop finished as he always does. I think that's the most impressive thing about tyler is like you said he's fallen alabama's looking like that's a aaron rodgers style. Throw from a dude who is five eight on day and let me tell you to be able to talk your body in position to make that throw while you're literally falling into the to the the left side line was that the opponent sideline in my opinion. I don't know what side of the field but going to his left. he literally was falling in it. Felt like he was falling into the stands right and and put it this way one more step the guys out of bounds before he throws it and to be able to torque his body clock running out. I think there was what two seconds left after the catch. Right there were there was nothing. There was nothing left to do after that. And no timeouts on the clock masterful play. And that's why you work on those and that's why you put your best receiver back there. Who can jump and got the long reach and a big hands to go up and loves to catch the ball. The ball needed on that one. So hodges now eight years old. That was career catch yesterday number. Six ninety nine that touchdown catch nice. So he'll be at seven hundred with his next catch early in the next game at the age of twenty good players old for pretty good player and the hits. Just keep on as you said about the city this year. And he's at sixty hopkins's sixty seven rate sixty one through nine games nine games. Just take away that per game assays average sick. What seven catches a game. Seven time seven would be forty nine seven more ba. Fifty six seven catches game. Right right is that about right. So bad game last week against the seahawks from two catches so it was the miami games. Three forty nine more catches on top of that gives them. He's on pace for his main. Typical season about fifteen hundred yards. And he's got how many cats right now. Sixty seven okay so it catches fifty more balls. You're talking about one hundred. One hundred seventeen catches de his average his as for one hundred nineteen catches one. Thousand five hundred thirty one yards. And which will be double digits touchdowns to seven touchdowns okay. So there's only four touchdowns which is so weird. He should be catching more right. They're throwing the ball around and get. It shouldn't bother anybody because they're winning. That's exactly right part of that. Lerve and meyer unselfish stuff. We discussed and that we discussed after hearing him on. Fox talk about that talk about that the other day. Jj watt was frustrated moving forward. I'm anxious to. We've been saying for weeks now. The duke johnson should get more. Here's what the shawn watson said about. Johnson's game. Yesterday ran the ball hard and he did what he had to do to try to continue to have positive yards and get first downs and big play so do cladding very good game protect the ball and he's just going to continue to you. Better couch make very good at it I enjoy very much. okay Let's go to baker mayfield on the running back. Duo which the texans new yesterday that they were going to run it and according to romeo we he said we they ran into i and we did our job and shut them down and then we knew they were going to run it in the second half and we didn't do our job because we were trying to make plays okay. Here's what baker mayfield said about. Well they're running back duo corinne. He brings that tempo that the electric runs to us. Nickel break those off and make long runs but kareem you know the energy he brings into the huddle He's constantly talking to different people. I think that's the great part about it. So cream brings energy into the huddle continues to fight off tackles and just doesn't care what happens is really wants to win in any way which is the same way but It's just great to see how they both lead in two very different ways and the weather come into play yes wind can affect and when we say emceed. You'd asked me this during the break about. Does the wind affect the throw. The wind not only affects the throw into it but it also affects it with it too much win with an i used to hate it because of ball the point stays up and you if you don't wanna overdose so you know what you're doing you short armitt thrown right. And then i'll try to find and then trajectory changes and always quarterbacks into the wind just the your lower half the exposure. You can't try to overthrow it because the balls all over you gotta drive it through there but it's got to be your mechanics. Can't change some guys try to overthrow. The ball ends up wobbly and all over the place. Well nick. Martin the texans offensive lineman on if the weather affected their game. Now i don't think it did. They actually did a great job. You're in cleveland. Given the field right you could tell the inside. Ashes will replace before the game So the field is in good shape. Do you think about just the delayed and that throw you off and all you guys to go in and have to wait thirty five minutes to start. I don't think so. I think that's perfect. World professionals I mean we don't like the delay especially after the anthem and the hail juices flowing pretty high guy. People go different situation. Start the game again. Like than ready to go whenever that's as most answering ingo that's no excuse on a weather. No excuse on the delay. Although we're all trying to seem wilt people trying to create it for no excuse okay. And he's a pro and he's exactly right and had him talk more. Just ask him the questions about now. Play better to write. He knows it and he knows it but at least he didn't sit there and say well the weather protection product. No slide right so what. You're pro so they get paid to do great answer now. The goal line fourth. And two i am. I'm always baffled. When you don't get to the perimeter with the run pass. I i just don't understand it. I just don't unless you're the tesa milled. Cam newton that power inside run game. Power zone quarterback power zone most teams. Don't have that guy to do that right. See get some to create edge. I still you know what i always like to is. The you know the option pitch fake fake sweep revert reverse pivot and you fake it to one guy and pitch it to the option guy because it freezes them and when you got guys going different ways people freeze and then you can get contained at least let the guy get to the edge. I liked that. And i also like my quarterback getting to the edge. Because there's a four way break you've got three two or three receivers and then you've got the option to run and dive and make a play. At least you have when you run it. In between the tackles with a quarterback whose escape ability is usually east and west and they're not exactly dominant up front in the interior. It makes it makes a difference. Here's what john watson have to say on being stuffed on fourth and two. I mean they did a good job of of stuff. I was trying to find an alley. And a whole. Now's made a good play of of redirecting play. How about this to offset the coachspeak. Let's listen to baker mayfield on myles garrett. They made great player in the needed. To i think miles took the approaching. No real g's movement. Silence like lasagna. Why can't we have that. He's like baker lawn. yeah. Baker is a great line. I'm going to tell you real gs workout though to say it real. G's move in. Silence like lasagna. He woke up yesterday morning. Thinking i gotta get this in post game. I got to get this in. And right delays all that stuff means bowl teams are delayed but if we can say well as one team more equipped to play on it than the other. Well i watched that same. Cleveland browns team two weeks ago. Let the oakland raiders. Beat their brains in. Even though the score didn't indicate it physically manhandled them on the road. And the raiders. Play in vegas. They're not supposed to be equipped to handle either. Nobody's really equipped to sit there and go out and have a deluge and the winds blowing sideways. Of course not. she's like golfers. Don't like it either but if you practice outdoors maybe you do. Green bay deals with a cold. Maybe because they practice outdoors when it's freezing out but in game like that love nick martin's answer. No no. He's we we're pros. Baker mayfield actually talked about the difference. Between the raiders. Game in this game in which was worse if really affected them and basically he said this game was worse but for them they just practicing and they're used to it and they are on the whole key dominate. The when you bad weather you'd better be set. I always talked about teams setup for january. If you don't like cleveland for any other reason i can tell you this the problem in january because they can disrupt the passer on defense and they're run game keeps them in games on offense. They are set up for january because of that very reason because they can run it. Just like tennessee. If they get to january they become scary. They're not the most gifted teams but they get the january. They're scary because it doesn't matter what what what whether you throw at them. Turn and give it to the big fella field. They can control it and their quarterback can have a day. Yeah even if you don't love them they can still have. They both had days no questions. Sports talk seven ninety. Sean south thirty more minutes to go here on our opening of a monday here in november and post loss monday. We've say say that a lot sports socks seven hundred.

We didn't put him on a table we always had see. But we don't have like real cranberries. We did see. Does the big slice it. It's like the blob. Sit there you've got to slice it off instead of like the the the one that you could get the somewhat fresh where it's like make it looks like yeah where it's like. It's the spread right. Cranberry just read like on top of the cream. Cheese crab or just a blob of where be like fatty acids it's grows. It's like blizzards fantastic. Wait i'll be really dipasupil know jello. What do we call that cranberry. You're right though that fresh out of the blocks out now. Look that endeavour deviled eggs. My family is huge. on deviled. eggs cannot stand really cold. Cranberry sauce the homemade. The right way. I could put that on a i like gravy on turkey more than anything good gravy the like the gravy. The stuffing some people caught dressing. I call it. Stuffing gravy stuffing The mashed potatoes. they all kind of It's just a. It's just a free for all. I don't care if they some people are going that. Thank you agreed. Now those cranberries on a sandwich the the the turkey. I do the fresh crab. Not out of the blob like you're talking. You can even take time to cut the damn thing. So i gotta have that but do the deviled eggs is a must. I gotta have them. But it's not at the dinner. It's the orders. Lighten up to eleven o'clock on while the macy's parade which i don't even know ashes year. This year were handled to texans blinds on thanksgiving day. Yes if the staff that's going to be watching if your defense bet if the the lions road for a buck sixty on your ass. You know you might. You might be in real trouble. But i don't think we have the may stay for macy's day for it so that's at mid-morning when you're watching around ten thirty eleven out that those fresh right out of the refrigerator because you made earlier in. They're sitting there in the morning and they're cold. I'll do not kill a deviled egg man. Yeah you like eggs normally right. Oh love eggs. I had you know. I made eggs right and you look freak. Saline made that yesterday. So josh so cranberries and what about at the meal. The main substance meal. Get rid of the exit. get rid of the cranberries. Is there some that people have like. Are you a candied yam guy or just leave. I don't like mellows in miami. I don't mind the sweet potatoes. I love sweet potatoes marshmallows in them. I don't mind that to me marshmallows around the desert side. If i'm putting a but i'm a whip cream on my pie with ice cream. I don't need candy. I love him but at thanksgiving. I don't want i don't know why but marshmallows to me. Don't mix in with my potatoes at christmas. I don't like thanksgiving see. I think they taste good but i. I don't think it's necessary and i can understand. Why would i want marshmallows and my thanksgiving dinner. I was also going to say. I looked up. What is considered the worst thanksgiving food in his starts off with the canned. Cranberry whatever you wanna call it. Yeah cam like slicer own not good. Yes by far the leader in the clubhouse. I'll say though. I think it's not bad food. But my least favorite thing or is it doesn't make sense thanksgiving mac and cheese. I feel like it's hey let's add something else. I can have mac and cheese. Day of the week out. Needed thanksgiving thanksgiving's when i want to go all out and get stuff. I don't normally have. I got to come clean. I do like having mac and cheese around although it. Sometimes it's one of those parts of it. You know homemade. Good mac and cheese and it has been home. May exactly because. I'll put some like some spicy. Like yeah and i like to put like red hot on it or a good spy. Do i like spicy mac and cheese or if you like a seafood mac and cheese mix if you wanna put that. I'm okay with that. But i tell you. It's not the first four things i reach for the. Oh by the way dish for me yeah. It doesn't scream. Thanks giving but it's almost always there to everyone we don't ever have and i. It's not on my list is obviously. Turkey is obviously mashed potatoes and gravy Obviously some sort of roll orange role. That guy sometime melt in your mouth some sort of good role right he even if you go to the hawaiian roll out of the bag out of the box. Delicious when you warm up a little butter on whatever that i gotta have stuffing guy got to And how you make it so you got for me. I also have to have the cream corner that cream corn. Who do like a jalapeno right. So do i make a new sticking the slow cooker and then i have a four cheese green bean casserole the it sits forever and then you bake it and it's just the cheese melted on top. You've got four cheese inside the layered with along with a long string beans and the one thing that can have does taste good to me. Even though i don't i prefer homemade is that i can live with green beans out of a can. They actually don't say you. Tuck them into something else. You gotta put the bank exactly to dress them up but make that too so that green so there's about five or six things now anything great mac and cheese. I don't add extra media. i don't. I don't have ham. I don't go to somebody's house you do but when i cook it at home i have a fried turkey and a regular the old school where you just stick. Like fried or deep fried. I'm talking about two different kinds of turkey's but i have had prime rib and hammer christmas for me. See we have a nice family. It's turkey and ham. Always for thanksgiving always have both and then for christmas. Most of the time it'll be turkey and ham again so it's like we kinda just in. We're we're those people but we are not ham. People we are family only has now. I'd say my started bringing him into it. But usually christmas thanksgiving easter. It's turkey turkey or see for me modestly. It's turkey at different types of turkey. No ham usually my me now. I've been most people may have but at christmas time it's ham and my son. My chef son still makes to this day accounting any restaurant. I've ever been the best prime rib. Now it's a lot of it is how were you get it right but how cooked it is a the sauces. He homemade is the best prime. Remember so prime rib and ham for christmas but we don't have prime rib and ham in my home for dinner. We have different kinds of turkey. Isn't it weird. How people have traditions. They they don't deviate from right so certain you're no eggs are out for you on the order. Macaroni cheese out for you. Putting putting the can putin marshmallows on my sweet potato at thanksgiving. I know it's a regular occurrence for many. I ain't doing marshmallows on my sweet potato all have dessert after thanks we also have a quote unquote breaking news. Woche trade with the nets hold. That thought. we'll get back not drinking. okay okay. there's there's another dude ruin. Be going to break. Yes we wouldn't that would be delayed. We're coming right back at sportstalk.

Thanksgiving 2020 Recap, Lamar Jackson COVID news

"They're down in six right optic gut. That is kip senate. He is gone third of the ball. Game for the rookie. Antonio gibson is a knockout blow here in arlington texas that was antonio gibson with the knockout blow in a ridiculous forty one to sixteen victory for the washington football team the first place washington football team over the dallas cowboys. I'm greg rose. I'm with marks. Destler this is like a surprise album drop from a band. No one really needed any extra music from but who cares. We're on thanksgiving. Were delivering it to you to mark. And we're gonna hit the lamar jackson cova news later in the show. But let's just start talking about this one Mike mccarthy guy. You've always loved spending thanksgiving with them. I'm sure it was a lot of fun for you. Oh you can't top it. So let's let's start right there but ida cowboys because we felt this hope around them. I think it's a group that they could be the team that emerged from this. Division showed some life down the stretch. And i personally just ignored washington the entire time and they look like the better team. Mcconnell reminded me at the end of last week's game. When i thought the cowboys defense look tired against done. Dalvin cook the vikings down the stretch. They looked tired again. Today and gibson set it off but it felt like a doomed operation or one with lingering questions right out of the gate for dallas on that opening field goal. Drive you lose cam irving left tackle and look at. Let's cameron is replaceable. To some degree in life but that martin out at right tackle and he returned with crutches and you know on the sidelines. So that just that changed. I thought everything for dallas to some degree. And you've got zeke elliott her. They're not giving the ball to on fourth. And one which was a questionable fourth and one scenario to begin with and i thought that impacted the entire offense dalton was under under pressure and i thought he threw the ball pretty well but i'm just became too much for the cowboys. Yeah when those injuries happened. I kinda thought washington should win this game and then i thought even if they don't dallas isn't gonna get it done this year. I mean. that looked like zack. Martin is out for the year and at some point. It's just like it's too much. And i picked the washington to win this game. Not that my picks have been particularly good this year. There have been mediocre. But i do think this one was good but they. They do look like the same team each week. I thought alex smith maybe maybe worse. Start of the year today and it didn't matter in these two teams weren't that mismatch but they're sort of like a toughness to them where they show up. They give you a hard effort every week. They almost never get blown out. They're always in these games. Their defense is better than average for sure. And i think your boy scott turner who used to be with the browns used to be with a lot of teams turner's son has done a good job when you watch them week after week. Like you guys are open and you see young players like antonio gibson. That's a third round. Pick who i've loved watching. He is has so much power. Didn't even need it today. You just kinda saw the speed. And then terry maclaurin like you have some young players. Monta sweat the interception chase. Young has done his thing. So it's like all right like you're trying hard and you have some young players that is about enough in the nfc east these days. Their schedules pretty tough moving forward. But i think them in the giants are kind of the two teams to watch. Well it's almost it's a nice surprise of it's the two teams. We'd never would've that. We counted out so thoroughly back in the summer. And on the on the scott turner front you know keep to leave of course called him. Just young turner. I don't even know if he knows what his first name but they really was with them on some you know. I think he personally knew him. Yeah advocate logan thomas. The way was used showed like an arab creativity by washington. There was the one very odd play or alex. Smith shifted out. Who centre had the ball and put it underneath like jd. Mckee but basically rogan hind and they showed that ron rivera team had run the same play with the panthers back in two thousand eleven so they tricks and on the flip side i thought the bones fossil fake punt was a huge turning point in this game and they had be gutsy your seasons on the line but washington as troy. Aikman noted was so well prepared for that. I think that they just look like a ron rivera type team. When ron rivera type teams are looking. Good right i mean. It was forty one to sixteen. That felt very misleading. Despite the injuries was twenty six thousand entering the fourth quarter. They thought they would win this game but then it gets crazy. 'cause really 'cause washington started three times inside the dallas thirty five. I was two turnovers on downs. One was that fake punt which is one of the worst fake punts. We've seen i mean they. They tried it. Didn't work the fourth. And one you mentioned it's just been a tough It's been a tough season for mike mccarthy right when the cowboys pull you in then they break your heart. That's what they usually. That's what they usually do in looking at their schedule. I don't see a lot of wins. Washington has only one more division game. That's their that's their. I guess problem when you look at them moving ahead. They will not be favored likely in a game until maybe week seventeen against the eagles which could be for the division whereas the other three teams. They get to play. But i'm done with the cowboys you're done. I'm done with that game two. We don't need to gary von from like if you if you enjoy jerry jerry jones looking disappointed if you enjoy like tony pollard. Looking like the better cowboys running back for the like for like a month straight at least feel like. He's better than zeke than you enjoy this game. Let's move on to the late afternoon or early. Early duke johnson tosses it back and why don't put this four are you kidding. This is unbelievable just silencing the fancier but this outstanding klay calling you never the plays or run like this right now in the backyard of america thanksgiving day. Not as many as usual jim. Unless you're with your family because Because of covid i used to do a little thanksgiving football with the with the friends Is pretty much. The only day of the year. Say i would play tackle football. Occasionally there was snow on the ground. The ground was often frozen. And i was easily the smallest person among my friend group so it wasn't always that much fun but it kind of fun. I mean we like i. I had a neighborhood gang of kids that picked up tackle football very early. And there were these three brothers mccarthy brothers and every day i get home from school like be home. Get home at like two thirty to five there on the phone. Get up here now. We're playing and they would bully you into a delightful. They would bully you into plane so it was five days a week namely might have been one of the only days that didn't have to get pulled into that but that greg that shows that You know someone to play the game. I have that unit sent were more of like a street hockey basketball and baseball kinda crew. And i guess we were just a bunch of women. The western mass area. The texans won this game by the way Forty one to twenty five. This is how you know the enhanced here like he wouldn't go this far into the recap without even get into the game but let's be honest. These were two teams. That aren't going anywhere. They're both foreign seven now on the year. I'm glad the texans won this game. Because i feel like they've been a better team than the record showed all year. I don't even think this is one of the sean watson's like better half of the games. He's played this year and yet he ends up with four touchdowns three hundred eighteen yards. That's how bad the lines defenses. And that's how good they're passing. Attack is even even without some injured wide receivers like they. They are tough to stop. Yeah they didn't have randall. Cobb or kenny stills. But i mean healthy brandin cooks in a healthy fuller or the pair much. Rather have and i mean we'll fuller. They must've what that means. Obviously they dug deep into the lions panthers tape from a week ago and dj more embarrassed that secondary to know jeff. Okudah was fried last week. He wasn't on the field time around the first round pick but catches for fuller of forty thirty eight. Thirty seven yards cooks. had a twenty seven yarder duke. Johnson had a thirty three yard catch and run so big laze in wide open spaces against the detroit's defense that this was meant to be map patricia's staple and you know it's interesting. 'cause the sean said like this is basically it is. It is very patriots. Ask what he did the patriots last week and what he did to the lions today lowers the q. Rating on the patriots Experience on defense and matt patricia faced some tough questions after obviously in refused to go there about his future every week right i mean it just seems like this when these things to happen on national television. That engine gets cranked up a little bit. You know you're not gonna hide every lions team at one o'clock eastern on sundays. We all witnessed this car crash. This this was very similar to the first game. Now that i think about it that trick play kind of ended it with a you know a little chicanery gets it done. It felt closer than than it really was Towards the end it had the. Jj watt pick six. Just like montas. Sweat worry jumped up and caught it. I thought that was nice. Jj watt spin on thanksgiving twice in his life and he's done something memorable twice like a monster game against detroit eight years ago which he talked about and i wouldn't be surprised if this is it for matt patricia. I'm whether maybe even by the time we tape on sunday. We'll be doing our big previous show tomorrow. Friday and like twelve hours ready for that mark. I mean i. I'm contractually obligated to be ready for but i have to live on it today. So we'll know what we're having fun i. They fired steve mariucci. I saw After thanksgiving loss with almost identical record in his tenure to matt patricia. There's a new ford running the team. That's taken over that. She hasn't really talked too much. But this feels like maybe it's time and if it's not this week it'll be later in this season or immediately after the season they have no juice luck either. It's a little bit of everything they didn't have golladay or or swift. And i am convinced before we move on from this game. That romeo cornell is going to be their head coach next year. Because of our boy jack easterby who you and. I both really embraced. I believe that the way for him to keep power is do not shake up things. Too much knows. Romeo like it's all patriots. It's like give us one more in year. You keep romeo the second. I saw ian rapoport report. Something about how they're worried. They might not be able to fly in people for coaching interviews. Because a covert. I'm using that as excuse you got fifteen thousand people in the stands. You can't do on coaching interview. It's gotta be romeo cornell. 'cause they're gonna keep winning games. They're not all easy games but romo was trying to sell us on that. The texans aren't totally dead. And i thought you all for one more week. He's right just because they have so many division games they have. They have to colts games in the titans in theory. If you swept those three games you could be next week if you you can at least get ready for that colts game in. Thank you kind of kind of like the classic berserk or team that we discussed though that like record or not. I mean they're not making the playoffs in their changes the head. I wouldn't want to deal with the texans at all. Now they are. They are cooking on offense. You're so right about cornell because it's just about you know you don't want a strong voice that comes in and in the first move is jack. Easterby is sent on an airplane to the caribbean. Know he wants to stick around And he he wants to be the strongest boy. So you hire the weakest coach. And i'm not saying that that's cornell many already along with no one that can take him in a in a power move into romeo's credit therefore in one with him and so they have. They have won games with him. It's partly because the schedule got easier. And they were just super unlucky with that early in the year. I'd wanna of cornell would want to do this. He's the notion. The likely was having fun. According to tony romo. He was like having a blast that he was getting to do this one more time. But maybe that's only thinking that it might be ending soon all right this podcast if we didn't get a huge news and dropped right before we taped. Lamar jackson has cove nineteen and that would indicate he's not gonna play on sunday against the steelers. You know since. We last recorded a podcast. That game was postponed. Obviously if you guys are listening to this show you know that Till sunday at one. With mike to rico on the call on like a one o'clock game that's wild and now it's gonna be lamar jackson on the bench and robert griffin the third. Starting that game against the steelers if they play the game which. I don't think we can totally assume at this point. I really wonder what the league office how they measure each this. Because there's a a slew of teams impacted. It feels like a corona announcements are coming every three to four minutes at this point and you have mark ingram out. You have dobbins out the accounted for one hundred twenty of other hundred and twenty nine rushing yards a week ago. You've got gus edwards. But you take lamar out and rg three is over. Get it largely threes. Sort of like the in theory. You could run a similar type offense but everytime crees come on the field. That offense looks broken to me now. We need to do like a whole new preview. we actually will on our tv show. Which if you guys want to check out. We'll be on saturday morning on nfl network and so We'll talk about the new mattress. Then but it's crazy. I tend to think the nfl Is going to do everything they possibly can to play the game But adam schefter Literally one minute ago as we're taping the said that four more ravens players. I assume that lamar was one of those players and another staff. Member tested positive. So they've got. I would say you know the most serious outbreak since that titans one five six weeks ago maybe the most serious the entire season They have officially suspended The strength and conditioning coach which reportedly Was not following protocols in terms of mask wearing and being in close contact and other things they didn't announce it as a suspension they just said disciplined other reporters have said it is a suspension So that is a mess in. It's too bad This thanksgiving these games. Which i still enjoyed watching because walker loves like he loves watching a game with me and it's rare that i'd be so distracted so i still had fun today and we got the tape this three hours earlier and get it out to our listeners Three hours earlier. So that you crew they can get it right now but before we go mark like i was happy to watch the games with with the walker to go out. Jim nance on you. Let's let's end on a positive note. We can't go cova. Let's let's do the traditional the thing. My mom made do us. Do we really had to do this in say one thing. We're thankful for this thanksgiving one thing. Well i mean. I think what you say more than one. I'd say don't say it needs to be. What now do two quick things. Because i think like you know it's been we've felt it with every episode. It's been the opposite. Everyone knows it's been the weirdest year of all time. But i think there's a lot of stress behind the scenes for everyone who has families are if you don't have family and you're not able to live a normal life. I'm just thankful for the moments that our family has been able to kinda band together and have a laugh. it's not. I don't think that i would pick our family structure as the group that should be spending twenty four seven time together all that i mean just based on seven months of experimentation. I would suggest it's maybe not the way to go. But i'm really proud of my kids for hanging in there and my wife and i think the to do this show and the couple times that you hear from our listeners. That say like you know life is so up and down but thank you for still carrying about this in creating a diversion at a time when too easy to bail on a diversion that i am thankful for the type of listeners that our show has versus if we worked on some other random show i. It's their special crew in so they've actually helped a lot to hear what they have to say and so that is. I said that that i appreciate now. I mean yeah. That's that's very well said i. I don't even need to repeat it because it's all so true like and especially if you're listening to this show thanksgiving whenever you're listening to whether it's friday saturday or whatever. You're the diehard. Were putting the show out for you. We love being regular And we appreciate it. I'm going to say. I'm thankful for the service industry workers. I know that sounds like. I'm like pandering but i went to pick up my turkey and not actually we. We ordered some brisk it today in america is cooking turkey separately brisket and a bunch of sides like she cooked some up. We also pick up some stuff you know. Take a little bit of the load off. I'm obviously not helping. That's the way to go and it was like this huge operation at this nearby place. That's great and there's all these crazy lines and there's these jerk wads that are like complaining about their having to wait in the line that we pre-ordered from while there's literally like five hundred people in the parking lot and it's like extremely well run and they have twenty people working on thanksgiving passing all this stuff out and all. I'm thinking like you can't tip these people enough and there's these jerks are like complaining saying i'm gonna cancel my orcas there like waiting twenty minutes and you just see this attitude in the in waiters and everyone work in the restaurants are keeping us fed and everything that's the last thing they deserve. They deserve our thanks to the medical people and everyone else that's forced to like be out in the world and working for us there so shout out to the restaurant industry. Everyone else ricky.

He's forty two he's he's somewhere in between me and mark in year. Why did they have online for their body. Like progresses faster. It's just a weird human thing to do because we feel bad that they die quietly so for some reason we have to make an adjustment. It doesn't really make sense for us right. It's it's just sort of sad they live. You know it is one of the bombers about having a dog. i had a dog. I love dogs and cats but you know they die pretty quick.

FROM THE SB NATION NFL SHOW: Monday Football Monday recaps SF-LAR

"This is Sam. I'm an assistant managing editor at The New York Times. Our newsroom has been empty since March a we've been busier than ever before the pandemic has changed how we work, but it hasn't changed what we do. This is why we became journalists to bring to light real verified information when the stakes couldn't be higher. We can't do this work without our subscribers. If you'd like to subscribe, please go to ny times, dot com slash subscribe, and thanks. The following segment is from Monday football. Monday on the ESPN nation. NFL Show where we're discussing your favorite teeth subscribe to the SP nation NFL show to make sure you don't miss conversations like this one the los. Angeles Rams the frauds. I Watch this game with my dad and he did not understand a gradient color associated with the rams numbers on their uniforms. He thought it was lame, can't say I disagree with him all too much. But the performance from the Rams certainly was laying twenty four to sixteen, the final score San Francisco back in the conversation for NFC west runner up the ultimate bridesmaid because we know Russ is going to cook that division all the way through week seventeen kissed your thoughts on cash Shanahan's version of Jimmy Garoppolo. I'll say that I saw a tweet and forgive me for forgetting who tweeted it. This was the Ideal Madden game in the ultimate coaches, protecting their quarterbacks bowl with Shanahan Garoppolo in mcvay and Gov with the forty niners cut like we talked about with Green Bay like they're going to be fine after this loss to Tampa Bay, and it was a blowout and whatever last week, the forty niners kind of experienced that same kind of blow out this week, they come out and a beat A. Division game a tough one, and they come out and they really dominate this one and kind of like what? I what I saw with the Rams I'm waiting to see like I think this team is for real. I think they've changed their stripes. I think they're not as predictable on offense as they became over the years as stagnant as they became, but you gotta do it against somebody that's not the NFC East I got I. got to know that. So that's about right now with the Rams I'm kinda holding serve to really fire off the take until next week it doesn't get any worse than losing right now to the Philadelphia. Eagles which the forty niners to two weeks ago a week later, Abracadabra they were fits magic's a forty, three, seventeen loss to the dolphins. So the reigning NFC champions come into Sunday night football against we've agreed as we've said on this show good La Rams football team people making the typical laugh at the Sunday night football schedule jokes because they can't change the schedule on the fly this early the forty niners come in and they just ask some questions like, Hey, guys remember Deebo Samuel. How about the man we think is the best tight end in the league. Mr. George kittle did you forget how handsome Jimmy is nowadays everybody WanNa Talk. Like they got something to say nothing comes out when they move they lips just a bunch of gibberish smell come up with a week like they forgot about the forty niners this was a tale of two quarterbacks here Jimmy G. like a franchise Guy Jared Goff opt look like a system guy the system didn't work on Sunday night and Jimmy G. now healthy made plays and it's time you wait for it all show here it is the come up the week goes to my Guy Deebo. Samuel, six for six does not get enough credit for I think the player he is and how dynamic is the different formations you can run. Him In he is back, he is healthy and the forty niners now are making things interesting, I? Don't think they win that division with all the cooking too much smoke in that kitchen, but they're going to be in the playoffs. This looks like if they're healthy enough, they will be a playoff team one of the seven teams in the NFC and then you see if they can make it back. So I hate to keep focusing on this remember circa two, thousand six when calling a time out right before a field goal became a thing like I think I think Mike Shanahan was kind of the first one to do it and Dick. Started, do it kind of became the thing where they would stand right near the official and? That was that was like I think for that year I love that this is the year where even though this that had happened before even though this has happened many times before this is the year of the going to controversy anytime going for two is up, you know we all have to talk about the analytical approach to it. Obviously, there's the Mike McCarthy version against Atlanta. There's Mike Zimmer. You mentioned earlier, there's Romeo Cornell and Mike Rabaul to a different. Degree from this same week I was stunned and kissed I'm going to assume you agree because we've been potty go on all of these so far that Sean McVeigh, he Super Fresh sensation vibes down nine the rams facing a nine point deficit instead of going for too late in the game decides to kick the extra point because you always make it a one possession game that bucked the trend because up to this point, we have seen head coaches at. Kind of agree and lean on the aggressive side of the coin. This was the opposite approach. Yeah. I mean it's a small swing and look I'm not Surprised Sean mcvay is a coward. Any has been a coward oh Hala. Look at for on decision making you see him on hard knocks. He he took his shirt off with his dog in the pool. People are going to see that you gotta understand. I'm not GONNA sit. There is a sense of bravery associated with that to be fair but I sean mcvay is the over hyped is not the right way to put it but he he does have some fearful tendencies that show up in how he calls plays and coaches football team. This is a flagrant example of Pete. I mean do you agree with the decision to kick the field goal and be a coward like? He has for most of his career I. Think it's smart and as he said to make it one, a one possession game and I think there's an there are times regression and I find as I described earlier like with Romeo as long as you are like have the game at hand or you're still giving yourself a chance, maybe you make that take that aggression but if you don't get it the game's over and so that to me is the right call I know. Nowadays alloys are literally proof that it is not over and it's and if you don't make it later, it is also over you're GONNA go for it at some point right to me p this is nothing like the Romeo Coronel decision the Romeo Cornell decision is similar to the the Mike Zimmer one and that there's some preference associated with that there is a little bit more I feel like being aggressive to that the show mcvay situation is identical to the Mike McCarthy one in that this is a variable decision. It isn't a matter. Me Tell you something like football isn't played on Excel. And it's a game of inches and they were still giving themselves an opportunity to win the football game. You can't wear like reading glasses or regular prescription glasses and be talking down on nerds like you're a writer what it what are what are doing here? I, write with a pencil and then I take that sheet and I bring it to chorus and then I write my. That's the type of grind I work on. But shout out to Chris Collins who tried to explain the lodger in the moment year Al Michaels. What did you do know pro football focus is only thirty dollars a year. Of course he's explaining the analytical approach Michael is literally said, I, love analytics as much as anybody else but sometimes you take the analytics and you throw it in the dumpster. That's right. That is the fight that I feel. So many people lots of our friends on twitter have with the world is there is this frankly archaic way of looking at football. This is how it's always done the always do this whatever and then people like. My Grebo, who we hoisted up a little while ago come in and completely disrupt, which is why to go back to that I am surprised that my able go for two in that situation as well. But I just I don't know the perception of Sean McVeigh I think on a national level is that he is cutting edge guy who's going to do things like that. But he is, which is why I think that the forty niners committed bullied them twenty four to sixteen. This was an impressive game to get back to San Francisco George, biddle Jukes Grade, and I think that Jimmy Garoppolo is the quarterback version of shock because now everybody's GonNa. Come out. Tackle Bet. You'd Garoppolo when you talk about you know league quarterbacks he's not. He's not really a quarterback and that's okay. No earlier in the season I said Jimmy Garoppolo. No. Jimmy, Garoppolo? Yes. That's that's the type of reversal that I've had with this guy when he's healthy, he's good enough, and in the NFL you need a guy like that he's top fifteen. Good for me. I'm excited to watch the forty niners the rest of the season. Make sure you don't miss our next conversation by subscribing to the SP nation. NFL. Show wherever you get your podcasts.

See and josh see Well you excited about kenyon martin. Junior wouldn't be seriously. Who wouldn't he had the same neck. Ted as as dad also pieces toughest is all matters right. Always remember kenyon martin for his neck tattoo flips. Yeah those are unique. Tets amounts of kidding martin's necktie. Okay and kenyon martin junior rocket that arkansas guy the thing is lasting arse want say alex no not soul. I love alex trebek's jeopardy. He had a very common name but he was first team all. Sec he'd scored twenty points a game there. He's sitting odd but the thing is i mean he probably has flaws his game but if he could score i mean they can't hurt right. He'll be always score will yeah. He's on a contract will will. I'm just it was a night of The rockets to the sixteenth pick. no they. Don't we'll give that away to do detroit. You take on. Trevor rees four point six million to do it for a second round pick so we don't have to pay a reason and we can have the full in l. a. And then they get rid of that. Pick for an extra million bucks to go back and get kenyon martin. Junior there was. There was a motivation for everything they did last night. Dole hate you. You can go ahead and it was a lot of things going on the news before the draft of klay thompson a lower right leg injury coming off a you can go ahead and left knee crossing the warriors season ending. Yeah it's theories. Yeah we'll know today. I mean there's talk that it's a he'll there's talk that it's The achilles what happens sometimes is your over kind. I'm not speculate on. He did this or not. But i know having had surgeries on one leg that the other hip back other parts of your body. Start to your gate changes in your you just do you. Favorite during although rehab in the offseason. He starts. Well why am. I saw my left ankle or what. But i don't know if this is the reason it could have come down on somebody. I don't know what he was doing to train. None of us do for the most part. He was training in southern california and he is a workout machine and unfortunately there's talk that he could miss the season and if it is the worst i mean it happens about thirty to forty minutes sixty minutes or less before the warriors picked so the initial thought was well now. Are they going to go. Try to take lamelo ball of fees there or edwards if it switched and ball was the first pick because does it change their strategy in meaning. You know obviously now wiggins more emphasis on him and they love to play perimeter and then you see what wise men's all about that he is exactly what in a weak position in the nba. As far as overall he runs the court he seven one he can shoot but he'll develop an offensive game. He's long play offense and defense Can get to the basket. But he is extremely athletic. Got nasty at him. He's rim protector and he doesn't have to do much offensively. But you know. Get some offensive rebounds but the rim protector and then they can develop them and it would have been a lot easier with klay thompson here. But we'll see today at some point today. They'll they'll discuss and announce what the prognosis for klay thompson. That was as we waited on. James harden stuff and russell westbrook here the big news before the draft was obviously in. It literally came down within an hour or so before the draft last night. So klay thompson was weight him. That does change the course of a team that thought they were an nba finals team. Now they they're still playoff team. Yeah i mean there's still a playoff do we said it like a week ago that they may be the favorites because they had the rest and they didn't have the return like everyone and with the ceiling. I mean when you talk about of the three guys and the first three picks and even if you want to throw patrick williams there with the fourth pick of the bulls. Who's a good player to. Williams is out of florida state. If i'm not mistaken. Cnn you don't get to see much of the for people who didn't see much of these guys this year. Well you saw three games. Wiseman before he was we didn't have the normal learn of lawn and wise men who played three games and then had to take it off because of a twelve game suspension and then just decided hell with it. I'm to get ready for the nba draft. Third pick so when he when you parley it out and say okay eight. Like we do with quarterbacks running backs or anybody else five six eight years now the best player of the the the most instant impact possibly maybe ball. He just plays no defense. Edwards is pretty good at both ends good body physical but if you take ten years from now if they will reach their potential. I mean you've got a seven foot. One guy who runs the court like anthony davis and listening to penny hardaway talk. He said he'll be the first he said. There's nobody faster end in in the league at his position than him. And so he's got some development to do but the klay thompson thing put a put a a somewhat of a monkey wrench in the western conference or at least in golden state's finals hopes maybe depending on what happens with the rest of the rest of the conference. No james harden no west russell westbrook trades yet. And as you mentioned a reason gone seen gray like stuff going on here. Yeah are they want to get away from luxury tax like we heard everybody say they want and they're probably gonna know they are now. I mean they have a full mid level exception available to them to you which is how much money nine point. Four million okay. So ten million this thing out. They're gonna use that. Why wouldn't you but we'll be able to know. When is free agency start tomorrow. I think it's today at sometime today or this week as tomorrow whenever at midnight. Probably have an idea pretty quickly if they're signing somebody that if they don't if they aren't getting on if they aren't gonna use it well then we know what's coming. They're not worried about being actually get competitive. They don't use that nine million to spin then. Guess what because they can get somebody for that nine million dollars a year a a guy give you minutes and actually you might be able to get serge ibaka for that right. If you want a big man. You might be able to you guy who would help them. Yeah there's no doubt nine million. I know we're the time now when we see your nine millions like flu. What are we getting some steph. Nine million can now with the mid level exception. Get you pretty good player. And when you start to think about teams depth for nothing if you just. We're looking for a guy to provide minutes in depth. That's a pretty good salary for provide minutes in depth in iraq is better than that guys like him. That can actually help team. This is actually. It's almost like getting a fourth round draft pick. Yeah that i'm talking about in the nfl that all of a sudden two years later you see you know what i'm saying these or free agent you say we got him on the cheap but damage overplaying contract right. That he's got that he that he can give you more than this so crazy time. We're saying nine months blah but i million. Nba is law. It is because what's the about five all at least right. Yeah it's gotta be honest sick between five and seven million. Maybe now we're way off at seven points okay. So it's closer. It's to the average salary in the league and that and that is now what brings that up. And what takes it down as a guy who sits at the end of the bench. Play much but think about that job. You don't see minutes and you're making seven million dollars a year. You don't take your swear that a lot of them a lot of give you some minutes at the end but that that nine million bucks can get you. We're about to find out quickly if you want to get a decent one you'd better get on a quick when it kicks because they're going to be teams to do jump on that those that are that have the ability to use mid exception gopher right so what is nine point two. You said i ain't seven point. Nine hundred ten million bucks. It's under ten nine point seven as well so it will but the draft goes to see. I'm not gonna get into the names. You don't i mean from your guy. Precious is in miami but all the way down to jade mcdaniels went to minnesota had pretty good draft now. Yeah nato completely flipped that officer. Sure did i mean what three first rounders in this one i think through nine point seven billion. Okay so you know the twenty third pick. They had believe the twenty eighth pick and then obviously the first pick so they've added some youth and taking care of that but edwards about a six foot four six five swing man who can do a little bit of everything you've got weisman who's a seven foot one stud who can run the floor and do it all and you got lamelo ball. Who's the most polished and probably won't play lick defense now but on the offensive end explosive score and you know and better shooter than his brother but just a he is the best. Maybe the most talented dude in the draft. But the question is you know. How are we going to judge them. Or we're going to judge him with the fact that he's just a great offensive player but he's going to have to ramp because he's fairly nonexistent on the defensive end. But we knew that going in melodic guys are especially at this age. The commitment to it's not there but We'll see how it turns out didn't look like his pops was pumped up. So so the lavar ball and michael jordan. Yeah yeah that's well. I i honestly think jordan's gonna say look we'll let you somewhat more around the team not actually involved as lavar probably wants to be but you want if not yet to sit down shut up and not causing issues jordan to lavar ball until he sees arena. I'll betcha. hey how you doin'. If jordan lavar ball played one on one right too busy playing golfer. Discourse data florida jordan could play in those suits that he wears with a cigar mouth and beat lavelle bad. Big big oversized. That's one thing he's not he's never been. He started wearing them. That was the look. Guys were wearing their suit coat down to this. He's committed low hamstring. It was the over sized like it was like a call a sack suit. It kind of looked like right. I mean over now you know well. I don't know how much he paid for him. Because i'm sure everybody was doing everything they could to give. Michael the suits for free. Because well you want so but oversize was the look and now i have yet to see jordan. Honestly you know used to wear the pleated pants the whole thing. I haven't seen jordan in a suit flat front. The you know the the new tie right fit right. I have not seen him in one. You know he and he likes you even see mitsuko golf pants in golf shirts. I've never seen him well. Michael extra pull the suit pants up high to. If you've noticed the highway just under is is he wears everything. That's that's his. That's his old dad coming out right. Oh yeah if you had jeans on. I can imagine my pants sound. Yeah exactly so but michaels. I've never seen him in the in the fitted tight tight fitting suit. I think michael probably still goes with the all the big baggy suit. I would think i mean so. But he could take. I don't care. If he'd michaels made the transition to the to the tight fitting flat front suit he still beat. Lavar ball. One on one with that odd. Yeah with that. we'll see. This is lavar ball. Is i mean lamelo ball is supposed to be what you've seen of him obviously extremely gifted player but to me it comes down now is what's gonna do what's west or the rockets going to do house klay thompson injury and you know the trade stuff's not done yet. En- daryl morey got to work is trade now horford. Yeah he did went. Got to work getting gas Al horford away the exactly right so starting worked out. What do you get. Look seed for danny green right green danny green netting first round. Pick to great shooters last night. And it's hate dare. Why didn't you get guys like that air. But who's the other ferguson right. Didn't get terrance and two and in the drafting maxi who is a great defender in. Apparently the big thing on. He's not a great shooter in general from three but against the top. Twenty five teams. He shot like forty to forty five percent and they believe that he's going to be could be a steel and i do believe maxi's a sophomore you normally for kentucky sophomore. Finding it didn't go to. Kentucky is a maxi maxine kentucky guy. Yeah yeah and but as a defender in cal- teach defense pretty good. I know most people don't really recognize that calbury good defensive teacher and that'll that'll bode well for them. They they actually did a good job in deir more working some magic right off the bat and oklahoma city thunder while they have four thousand per first round picks between now. And when i'm telling you they have all they do is want first round picks constant. It's unbelievable sportstalk. seven ninety going non with former. Qb sean salisbury. If in fact. Jim harden and rusty westbrook get moved. What honestly do we have to look forward to with the rockets this year as far as threat. You'd hope the young guy that goes back for them like it's not on this roster. Think yeah i mean talent and you're looking forward to is the fact that some different than at your new coach to see what he's going to and i guess depending on what you get The the the what the halls going to be in return right what the hall will be is. What are we looking for in the future with number ones. And what kind of players are you going to get to make this. Roster look presentable if either one of those guys or both are gone right. Yeah look more. Presentable of james is still here. I'll look less presentable if those two are gone but it look. I got news for you a lot. Different if they're both gone but at least something to look forward to if you're accumulate picks And get in and get a hall in return just curious of what hall they're going to get men for hard is still trying to figure out. I talked to two guys in the nba last night guys. That are familiar with it. One thinks oklahoma one thinks the philly one thinks brooklyn brooklyn and watch. It'll be neither of those right. You're probably right. it'd be funny. They're gonna completely said on. They're getting more than the the pelicans guy for jrue holiday. They're getting a player for at least one player. I think they're going to do willing to a half to. But i. I don't think there's any chance they won't or it stays pat pat. Yeah i would agree with that. Eight hundred no. It isn't eight hundred. it's well it's it's somewhere it's eight hundred eight hundred you know the when you say it's eight hundred hours eight hundred dollars it is. I'm not gonna go military talk time on your this morning. It is six our number one seven one three two two five seven ninety mark conroe. What's up buddy. How you doing good morning. Hey fellas hardening westbrook. They're playing hardball with a guy who invented are bought. Tillman for tita. My question is i thought we got a reza and a pick first round pick and they're not heard. They traded him to detroit. What about us. That i hang up and listen. That was a salary dome. They didn't wanna pay a covington's money. They didn't wanna pay a reasons money. They wanted to get back under the luxury tax well into luxury tax. And that's what they accomplished. They look we can be honest about it. They're in the business of not spending money right now. That is their goal. They're spending as little money as they can. Unfortunately on everything they want to not pay luxury tax and that included last night dumping off four point six million dollars to get rid of a reason that it's pretty obvious dump that pick back for detroit to get back an extra million bucks. The only the only spent three point six million dollars to get rid of coming. And i can tell you this too salary. Don't win they got areza. It was never gonna not renting an apartment or buying a home here. This was also was dealing with stopping in the airport for a minute. Even if he did what she probably did obviously he knew wherever he knew that there was going to be a second destination for him so whenever he goes there. That's it reza was do. This was just a says. Like danny green danny green matter of fact you look at danny. Green's flight plan is a real estate plan last. Four years that dude's that dude's he he should be renting out of the country last frigging everywhere so there you have it. Yeah and mark. Thanks for the call. But i don't think any of us thought a reason was getting when people start talk well perimeter defender and can three. He wasn't stay. He's not as good as he once was and we saw how how he was towards the end of his tenure here but i it definitely was a. Hey let's create this mid level exception. Let's not have to pay these guys. We don't really want to pay but it also does give them more assets that they haven't used like they drafted another guy with one of those picks yesterday that kind of just the value stays the same and it's different for every team while this future pick from detroit isn't the best because it's protected. Not have they basically have the the playoffs for the rockets to get this pig. But it's still an asset and it should convert at least in a few years in that could in a trade there's more value in trade for not having a player attached to it to having them but this was this was the motivation for this dumping money. You know it's just was you know what's interesting too is if you're just a person that watches basketball but you're not you don't pay you you just kinda. Don't pay attention to how these trades or when they say dumping salary or you get they attach player because it is for the people that are like calling and say lot reason you try to go through. The explanation tried to do that a couple of times. They don't mean and i get it the nba. It is free agency and attaching this sack. And then there's the hard cap you know what peop- the certain teams that hit that hard cap. The you have to have everybody on your roster underneath it or you can't go get players. Have you had seven players on your roster and there was a hard the hard capita whatever it is right set this year and you can't bust and you got five other roster spots. You've gotta fill. You can't do it unless you are under the hard cap your stomach. Yeah you're done. So there's there's it's just mid level exception and supermax. I feel bad for people that just used to watch the nba. He's under contract. he's not under contract. He's here he's not here and it's like they got trying to follow. Why did they do this. Why move this guy. And why did they go there. It's like you got an. It's ever changing as crazy as does the your cap and and the the price value put on a player. It's crazy for for the average fan at just trying to enjoy. We're sitting here walking through it like it is for some it's a it's a trigonometry class and it's not like the nba that you just watch twenty years ago. Even i mean you're likable supermax. Can't i pay guy whatever. I wanna pay him. Yeah no there's there's a certain way we certain guys and then there's a ceiling. There's a floor. I mean it's crazy so down there sign insurance that also allow you to go over the salary cap. That's what i'm saying. There's hard cabinets our cat. We told you but the whole thing is unbelievable. It's crazy confusing. Trying to figure in this confusing for some is when you and i used to go to plus now to get the two plus two. There's like eighty seven steps for these kids have got to bring this to this. It's like two plus two swore. Got their fat. How many one's going awol. Yeah we multiply first and then we add second and we subtract third and it's crazy so and it's the same thing here you're like the days of. Hey by the way. Did you know they just traded. Trevor rees it back to the rockets goodwill so he's gonna play. Don't not actually new. My brothers my brother called me all. You got a reasonable. Because my brother for some reasoning. I was like yeah. He's not gonna play here. What like he's not playing here. You somebody that what loved basketball or in the nineties or eighty percent. I don't understand why you trade for a guy if you're not gonna keep him and he doesn't even stop over and have a cup of coffee. It's crazy. I was just thinking how we go and i was talking last night. And i'm thinking we spent so much time talking about the money and the hard cap and the salary cap in the mid level exception and the supermax if this guy can go into the three they're sending bodies with them so you take on their contract take on their money but they're not staying here and it's like oh by the way this guy can put the ball on the floor and shoot and he can he you know he's really good down on the low post and he can defend all those things they become secondary because you just trying to mix and match these. Are the reasons why you have that. Math kampala gist in sports. Now because you can't be five dollars over in certain situations or you're in trouble. I mean they break down to the little the little mickle make sure it's and know how to do it. Like a daryl. Morey will know how to mess with the numbers and make stuff work that makes them such valuable assets. And then you see other teams. Do look like they don't know what they're doing. Think about it now. You know how we always go. Upper class middle class lower class ones in sports. We say well. This guy's of special teams player. This guy's a backup this guy's starter right. He used i mean a superstar. We're paying this guy repaint. Now it's to the point. You're like well. You got the mid level exception this not quite as good but we can save a little bit of money. Here maybe and find ourselves under the mid level exception. You could actually go to guys to woody right down to four point two million dollars players better than for the depth of our roster better than one nine million nine million dollar guy at been in one they do and and a guy who if they are intent on going forward with heart and westbrook right and playing this thing out right you have to go get an impact player and one of them not a guy who's just a guy just a warm body my point so it just. It's it's crazy how you're sitting there and you're watching it and try to break down. It's no longer for the most part about a lot of times who the best player is the second. It's actually who's the best player. I'm not talking about when it comes to the superstar and gives us more value overall for a couple of extra bucks. Yeah that's exactly right and they did that in the nfl. They've done that. They got rid of that backup linebacker. Who is their best special teams player. Because he didn't wanna pay him back in nine hundred thousand eight fifty because he'd been the league draft the guy in the fourth round. You make him go do it. You're really not sure if he can play linebacker but he's gotta come in certain situations and you're like well he's not ready for this but we couldn't keep the guy that cost a half a million dollars more that made roster better. It's the way it is an all sports. Now it's crazy money rules supreme sports talk seven hundred our number one. We'll come back with the big one. Seven thirty guy. Steve zola right so we got him talking. Nfl and the groundhog day that has been the taxes and romeo cornell. Well if your defense in your run game aren't working you know who to blame it on. We'll discuss sportstalk seventy up at the crack of dawn at the crack of stacey jennifer caron. At least he was back in vermont. Glory days nowadays. It's up at dawn. Which sean sean salisbury show. Quick question increased ten one question. This is the big one a the big question of the day. On the sean salisbury. Show think before we got the big question of the day which one of these guys that left the first two. Who's going to have a better year. This year in basketball daryl morey or mike d'antoni and tough primate dantonio. Yeah might setup for winning right. Now the seventy sixers look to be that but also could be tweaking some things you know yeah I don't know. I don't know that it would seem easy difference. Yeah and they both should be in the playoffs. Yeah at w. tie. Those are both top four eastern conference teams know if the rockets or playoff team depending on what happens with these two stars right with them and with with the stars and with the news of klay thompson being done that. The rockets path being just a playoff teams a lot. Easier if they have both guys and both guys play like they typically would they they should be a top five in west Yeah if they're both here if they're not then that in for the eighth playoff spot via real struggle with both those guys are gone. yeah Yeah i i would imagine. And i wonder what steve. Nash is if he if he's going to turn to mike d'antoni and say run the offense little. Let's do it your way which you've been used to over. Imagine that they're running. The same all is. That was part of that when mike was coaching it right. Yeah they they got after it will push the ball. Nash played that way and like to play which What two time. mvp so. I don't think he's gonna wanna play a whole lot of slow basketball right and then the question is if they did get james harden how would they approach i still. I still wonder that honest. I still wonder. How are they gonna approach how they teach and coach. Their offense has their role in Along all right it's sports. Talk seven hundred against zola will join us at seven thirty How about the big one for today. How about the biggest route move. The rockets should make between now and december. Twenty second came down to start a season. The biggest move they should make will make. Which one do you guys prefer. Biggest movie should should make a grade so man get get chime. And so what's the biggest move the rockets and we'll just leave it Open and yeah. Just leave it open. See get the responses because a lot of people have a lot of people that death didn't want james out and rusk on you get some the wanna both the actually get some. That would rather have russ here than james here. Then you get some say gimme james and don't care what happens to russ meaning worry. Yeah so. I think there's a lot of. I wonder what the next year's going to look like for sports in houston. That's i think the astros will be good again. They'll probably win the al west depending a lot depends on what other teams doing the division in the off season. But i don't think teams are going to do much. I think a division look the same texans. Don't we think of texts pregnant. Look the same again next year. How can they not. Oh yeah. I don't know well maybe not as bad as homeless name name plaque can't imagine every receiver that's on this roster is going to be gone. Yeah but the result no better than five hundred. Probably as as as we look at the way. They're playing today. I can't imagine that. I can't imagine that there are three win team next year. But i also don't see them as a team just looking at the roster and how many without a pick in the first round what adjustments are going to be able to make. It's hard for me to even visualize quarterback in a couple of good players. But we don't know what they're gonna do fuller. We don't know what they're gonna do. A lot of it's going to determine and supposedly now jackie's to be. I heard yesterday afternoon and i'm sure people in town heard that jack easter be is not going to be the gentleman or considered for the position. I don't know if i trust that yet. Yeah that's almost like they listened to all the fans right ditch and moaning and turn and made one hundred and eighty degree turn. There's no question so That doesn't look like they're going to do the right thing. Go find themselves a general manager but the general manager and coach will have a lot to do with what this roster looked like. It looks like obviously and how they teach and then an approach and speaking of which i tease last time and the poll question will be up on sports. Seven ninety on our Twitter page and you go there and vote and or at least give your opinion on the rockets and what move would you like them to make between biggest move between now and the start of the season romeo cornell Was talking about you know the football team and was asked. Why hasn't is that the one about. Why hasn't the run game improved the one that the main one about talking about training camp. That's what i thought so. Let's hit that. Here's what romeo cornell said and there's a part of it. That's true but i don't like this kind of stuff creeping. Here's romeo cornell on why the run game hasn't approved well. Every every plane is different game plan and so Sometimes you're blocking gaps game. Sometimes you're blocking zones gained and so it's the different technique involved in an all of those. I think the guys are a unified group. They feel good about each other. They try to get it done But sometimes those guys who across from you they make a difference about how well you can do your job And and so we've played against some pretty good guys across from this season you know and and so that has impacted in. Oh they play hard and like we go to tennessee our chance to win a chance to win last week. You know and and so. I don't say that they're dirt on anything like that. These guys are football players and they can play the game with just hasn't worked out forces year. He had also sad. I thought maybe that cut wasn't the about about training camp. No training camp earned right hurting their football team and earning their offense. Yeah there's part of that that's true but thirty two other teams face that as well and a lot of teams are playing pretty well now and this is a team that had been together. Didn't look to me like the cleveland browns running game last week. Ms training camp. Now now i get saying. He wants to be upbeat about his team. I get it but and the other guys are getting paid. I've said that. But here's one thing i well. He's the coach. But i know that quite frankly isn't really the case you don't change your full run game and how you block it. I mean as far as scheme goes every week. You sorry you don't do that. Yeah you right now if you're an outside zone inside zone t that that's what you run. That's the bay. Run your base stuff every week. Now you may say okay against this front will go to do this. A little different. Or we're going to add a wrinkle to it with the jet sweep but i've never been on a team that completely changed our scheme. Week-to-week you just don't do it. that'd be like saying we're gonna change our verbiage and call our. We're going to go from a three digit system to a just name and wristband system in a week. That's not that that that does not happen. Don't work at the base of their running. Game is the same verbiage the same blocking scheme every week. How you chained up you know you may have a guy say okay. You know we're gonna pull the guard to get on the edge this week. Some teams pull a center. I mean how we trap or how. We are inside outside zone scheme. What we're going to do. Are we going to double it and then get up to the second level those things. Yes but the premise of your offense. The forty niners tennessee. Titans pittsburgh steelers the premise. You're out there. They don't change their you add things and subtract small things little details the basis of your run game. They've been here long enough that it it. It's not like this week against the new england. They're going to completely change their scheme. They may change gets up to the second level. They're going to come own right weekend. Right now i'll tell you this if it is the case that they change every week. There's a reason why they're not good. Not good yeah right so if you're gonna tell me your missed training camp or didn't get enough training camp and so the continuity is there you can't turn around you change your scheme every week because that would defeat the purpose you'd say well we wanna get into. I know the best run teams in the world. I've ever been on her watched and talked to don't do a lot. They do a little and executed to make it look like a lot and they dress it up but they block what they know how to block and get done. Maybe if you're having trouble you dress it up with motion and all that and formations but you stick to what you do. That's out kyle. Shanahan does it. That's how good running coaches do it. So if you're changing your offensive scheme every week there's a reason why you're not good at it so going out practicing passing offense that you haven't worked on in practice can't do it so they've got to get better. But you do not change your scheme. Week-to-week the basis of your offense stays the same sports. Talk seven ninety. The only sports mathis the houston sports bubble for the city of houston. Because i love this. City sean salisbury. Get in the bubble on ninety. All right let's hit that a rub l. also was talking about. Listen i i love. I do but they are going to move in a different direction. Yeah he's not going to be the head coach. I wouldn't imagine i'm just i don't have any insight but i just can't fathom they're gonna really let the excuse of oh it's a covid year prevent them from being the head. Coach doesn't seem feasible to me. What's feasible is what's what what seems less feasible is the you would sit back and let covert effect who you're going to get just to me. It's stupid but romeo cornell was talking about the time of the season there should be enough time. Everybody had the same amount of time at training camp and how you approached. It was taught properly. Did you do it right. But romeo cornell talking about his team are attributed to this that we did not have the all season and then we did not have the the preseason you know in those are games where guys get an opportunity to work together and get a feel for each other And i think missing those helped the development of unit and so we're still trying to to develop to a degree and so That's what i attributed to fair enough. You protect your team. He's not wrong. He's not wrong that you would have liked to have an off season and not not a virtual zoom meetings. What would that have been like for you as a player. Not having all the normal offseason stuff like d really. Do you think it would hurt. You hurt your growth in certain as a rookie or a guy who wouldn't have known the verbiage. I mean trying to learn the verge being face to face with somebody talking but it's pretty much a self starter. As a veteran. It wouldn't have mattered at all from. I mean when i say not at all. Listen here's what people for instance quarterback to receiver. Yeah now i. I've always said you can't simulate no matter. How many sprints you run day. Three you're going to be sore and tired with gear on and playing football but is when they say timing. Listen throwing a curl route to chris. Carter thought occur. Anthony carter throwing a curl route to joe six pack in the off season a curl so when they tell. We gotta get your timing. I understand your rookie. You're scared to death about the verb. Don't to okay herbert. the yeah. It affects those guys seem to be doing. Okay that and that was going to be my point to a romeo nelson. Answer your question for me. I listen off season and training camp where to get to be around the fellas get some rhythm going and get yourself ready training camera again. That's exactly so the off season of if you're a veteran. Please don't give me the excuse especially on the mental. Well you don't need a whole a whole lot if you've been working and doing you're supposed to do running a flat. Router a slant route you should be able to do with your eyes closed against air. So that's from one so that wouldn't have affected. The people i was around i don. Warren moon wasn't going to be affected by the fact that we didn't have an off season so make sense. He's pretty good he was going to do is come out and still throw pretty ball every day. Okay the texts. If they didn't play their first four games appreciate still be two and three. They still wouldn't be doing great right but my thing is with all these. The cleveland browns went through it. Forty niners pittsburgh steelers. Miami dolphins justin. Herbert show berle. They didn't have that offseason and then rookies trying to learn so. Listen sometimes you just gotta admit that. Maybe you don't have good players in certain situated not not all of overall but in certain positions. 'cause we've tried every excuse and certain positions aren't getting better so romeo's one hundred percent correct. You can attribute part of it that you didn't have your off season. See you could have them in the meeting room together but in truth you also gotta attributed to the fact that either. It's not being taught properly. It's not being received properly. It's not being processed properly and it's not being executed properly. I attributed more to those because what about a team has to starting new offensive linemen. The colts went through with a new quarterback veteran. Lost running back their first place. I i am sorry. While i'd like i said i'm a huge romeo cornell fan but i think excuses are like button holes. Everybody's got one and that's an excuse. That's a major excuse. But i do get him covering his team. Romeo is a very well not like bill. That's going to go exactly jerk about one. Hundred and eighty degrees fail now. He listen romeo. Cornell's been in this leaks long enough and been successful enough to know that he can watch the tape of the run offense and the run defense and no. There's a reason why we're not very good. Yeah and he knows probably that it needs to be better with his staff. He also nanny knows there's nothing you can do. He knows that needs to be executed. Better what do you have liked to have at the truth is and when you think about guys. You don't spend a lot of time in the off season with coaches. You have your ota's and minicamp that you're really not allowed to be the right. You're you're on your own okay. If you live there and can go into the gym into the facility and left can't sit in truth is it. Ain't like you get sixty workouts with the coaching staff on the field doing it. So okay so you missed a handful. Okay so we got two weeks to make up for when you say. Ota's or three weeks as training camp that we didn't get okay. Wh- are we were pushing. December did yeah. So i get why romeo's sanit any is right but the truth that this part of the season the off season nothing to do with it because i can switch that right now. Edwards helaire is playing pretty well. There's a rookie. We mentioned those three quarterbacks their off-season the exact thing and a lot worse because why because they they've never done this before kind of takes a little accountability to each player to get it done and then when you get there you better ramp up the teaching. So there's a lot of things romeo's not wrong but he's not right to say he attributes the you can attribute the entire thing that guys you look at it. if out of position or can't make tackles that have anything to do with four months ago now has nothing to do with other than you. Just not doing her job right and if you do your job you ain't doing it very well. Yeah okay give up. One hundred and eighty yards rushing game. That ain't had have nothing to do with march a okay. Sorry to talk lack talent and effort and beat in the right place right. Now you're two yards out of line. What nick chubb did last week got to the edge and took it down to one to clinch the game. So i get what he's saying. And i have all the respect in the world but let's face facts sometimes. There's a cross between being abrasive and being delusional there somewhere in the middle to say that this team's only reason why they're struggling and that is because of that is one hundred percent on sports. Talk seven ninety hour number two next sean partial former. Nfl quarterback longtime friend. Sean salisbury. this is the sean salisbury. Show keeping sportstalk seven ninety. I always like little funny mean to me or some dad. A little her quotes some of we get passionate stuff at some of. It's pretty funny. I i saw this on social media yesterday. About i know all the time changes with curfews and lock stuff down in different cities. I listen and some places. They're trying to get you to wear a mask when you're alone in your own home okay. Even be real. Well i have you. Have you seen some of the governors in this country. Dude not ours. But i'm talking about across the country. I i i assure you. Oh yes there is i. By the way you mentioned the time change you can go to hell. Yes just the worst speaking of that. It says remember. This is funny. You get bad if you want. I just think it's funny. Remember that time when you almost caught the rona but you made it in your house by nine fifty nine pm. I just think it's funny. Because i know i'm not sure what a ten o'clock curfew does roanoke time change on. Oh i've got my own self curfew about eight thirty. Last time i take the dogs out. And then i'm in bed by nine. Worry about ten o'clock curfew. Because i'm not i got no problem with it but i've just said yeah. I decided that you actually have to make a. If you're seeing on the streets or arrest you can't be restaurants gotta close. I mean so. What have you read ten. Thirty is the ronan more relevant I guess so. I just i i i get the idea of well. We don't want large gatherings later. At night i get it. But i just don't know on a wednesday night. What if somebody wants a late dinner at ten thirty can't right because guess what rona knows. That are much better. learn to cook out. Yeah i'm not. I'm not pressing on a wednesday night anywhere near ten o'clock we early to get up but i just think that thanks funny. That hurried home by nine fifty nine. So the rona then get you. Its like the slipper with you know when you slip treats yeah you gotta get in before the clock strikes midnight but it's ten now. It's ten o'clock yeah. Make sure you get in you. Were you talking. I'm trying to remember what you asked me during the break but bugging me was it about the numb talking about you. I know i'm not thinking now. Now you've got me thinking what is it about. The texans were talking about lavar ball. Oh there you go there. You go about the lavar ball michael jordan situation that you had some fun sound about jordan. George put the video up on the blog. It'll be up there just a minute but obviously the lamelo pick last night third overall right. That takes a team away from the rust. Oh yeah adverse. Soon you'd think But lavar ball was of course he said multiple times. You know i'd be michael jordan one. Yeah he'd be he'd be fraud or something. What else he said and michael was asked about it at a basketball camp and twenty seventeen and he laughed it off. He also said that he was like you know it's he. I think he's going to be really good player. There's nothing wrong with a dad loving kid and urging about kids but he goes now he's crazy one legged and it's fact. Yeah that's fact. Here's the interesting thing but i do give jordan and that ownership credit for not allowing that or whatever to not take ball. Yeah you know georgia and do if lavar was come in and beat allowed and be on the sidelines. Or whatever new jordan. Shut that down. Yeah no question benefactor you may shot it is also going to go into practice and dog lamelo about it right. Oh he's wro. he's ruthless. Yeah when it comes to me he will. You heard him on you know on his done. The documentary where he just his own team. He then i took it personally. Yeah yeah and then. I took it person right there. You go so we'll just think lavar versus. Mj actually happen though. I know everybody in their mother brought it up last night. charity event. Ray you could raise a lot of money for charity. You probably could just just with jordan's just because people want to see an bar clowned right around show of course of what i don't know if lavar wants to be embarrassed bad. He'd played off like he was doing it on purpose. Flooding and let them beat them. I two nba brothers. I believed to be drafted in the first five. Picks lamelo in and lonzo. i don't think we've ever had. And i'm gonna go ahead and call my shot one day. We'll back at it and save. Neither of them was worthy of being a top five. See you think lamelo is going to be a bust completely really why you can't shoot. He is not a great shooter. I'm this is a league that we've seen this movie before talented guy. I mean he could be his brother cool. He'll facilitate a little bit. I understand eleven points per. I mean i could be completely wrong. Annoy we put up one hundred points a game chino hills high school and he also cherry pick the entire time. That's what he did. He played You measure you didn't play defense. He gives no crafts about that. Yeah do you think he's aggressive on defense or really mellow josh. How's your wednesday. You know. I gotta come clean. I just really clever when it comes to more Really up when it comes to my dad. Jokes just asked me. I feel pretty good about it. Actually i mean he keeps me mellow. Yeah so there you go. I listen to concern about the The when we get through the lamelo ball and stuff. And i right. I'm gonna give them a little more credit. Say he's going to be better nba. I haven't seen enough to completely house this. I've seen him shoot. And i look at the mechanics of and i go. How's it going to work. He's been at journeyman. Hey think about it. He's journeyman from high school to quit high school to play in sad. I mean he's been in a couple of different countries playing basketball. He was in high school and went to the left that to go play ball and no pun intended. If you see what. I did there to go play ball and the truth is you haven't seen much of him unless you saw as a youtube. Ram highlight videos of him in the australian. He's got game going to the rim. There's no doubt about it. No question and he can get his shot. I mean he's really good attack the rim. But i it's weird normally when you're the third pick of the draft or a top five. We've we've actually seen you at least for a year. The truth is if you don't know all's you his last name you know more about his last name and his dad than you do about him and he's third pick of the draft. Yeah because i mean you can read scouting reports on them or listen to people talk about him. But here's a guy who's been a journeyman before he was drafted normal your journeyman after you get drafted literally been around the world doing this. I'm still trying to find one. Hi what's he twenty. One thousand nine hundred a. He plays those shot right now. He's shot is he. Looks like it's chess pass. It's just like brother shutting very don't know how it's gonna man teach them to shoot like the know that's the thing you went your entire life learn how to shoot and this is the result. Is it like shawn marion. shy chesapeake. i don't get it. He turned nineteen in august. so he's also nineteen. I have to see for some reason. I thought he was twenty about to be because he left high school. You know what. That's the thing. So i like finish his full high school he just he just flat out left high school when he graduated from high school or not to be honest but he left playing playing high school ball and he was obviously committed to go play what ucla yep and that went away alford the coach at the time right. That wasn't the case. And then his dad for some reason they had there was a little disagreement or whatever. It wasn't just left went china's stuff and that led to his son not playing as much of being discipline and that was a disagreement and then they all went to lithuania or whatever went played all august thirtieth draft. He skipped his junior year of high school and part of a senior high school to go play professional lithuania and then he came back and he played at a prep academy in ohio and then he went to australia. I don't know how that works. How do you be a pro. Then come back to your eligible to go back to the pro bowl in lithuania. But he's here now to play high school basketball. You think that there was an unfair advantage. Their dominance weiss a little bit. So that's why you said in ohio so it wasn't obviously in virginia. We're okay. I mean he was yeah. He went to deter spire institute academy school in geneva. Ohio so basically a high school extension before college basically is what it is so well. Yeah so like. I said you try to follow his path. You can't pick in the draft and he should be really really good. A bunch of teams canceled their games against them when he went there because they they were unhappy with his professional experience in threatened that his eligibility was not allowed under state federation. I think that's probably a fair assumption by those folks there. Don't yeah it's it's odd but he's got a lot of experience while he was still should have been eaten at burger king with high school students. His team when have it. So he's he's ahead of the curve when it comes to competition when he was at spier. His team was removed from the hoop ball classic tournament. Event because the organizers did not meet the ten thousand dollar request as father for his son to play in the tournament we got to go break. Say that's the parts of thanks. That bothers me. Yes when. I know more about the dad than i do about. The player is data demanding. Rand chris kid to go play a high school game. Yeah yeah great. So we're making appearances as a high school basketball player. Times have changed. Sportstalk seventy stake it out next. This is the sean salisbury. Show sean. Now that sells very stakeout on the sean sounds breach. Show fred sports. Talk seven hundred. Mc let's take this thing out. We had a great thursday night football tonight the seahawks and the cardinals who wins and this one is in seattle. Three point favorite. Are the you want the gambling picker you want me to. I would take the seahawks in both. Here's why back to back. Losses defense is getting scolded team though in recent years. It goes there them. There's no question. Hit beat teams are actually walton in there and beating them more often than normal in the past especially with russ has had a couple ask for him. Average weeks is right. Now is not the leading candidate for the mvp who des i would say. It's either mahomes rogers. Kyla murray's charging to his. His numbers aren't as guardians the others but people looked like his numbers on the tax exemption. A better projector than lamar jackson was last year. He's going to have better number now yet. Look all these twenty six thousand one when it comes to touchdowns and an interception so take seattle. Here's why i actually think arizona right now. Seven interceptions in his last four game. Right i actually think that's seattle right now arizona right now. It's better team. Forget the ram just on that whole raw. There're better team but at some point time. You know how this goes when you just play the law of averages with a great quarterback at some point in time he's gonna up to remember beating the team twice to good teams hard to be placed. Let alone if you put them in the playoffs and you give them a third time writes. This is time to came down to the to the decay. Metcalf chasing the guy down. They had a chance to win. And then they didn't. I'm gonna take put it this way. Devos benton take the over. Let me just put that. I would take the over. But i'm gonna take russ. This is like a this to me. Is like twenty seven twenty three game thirty one twenty seven game. Not because i think seattle is better. I just think there's a part of me that says at some point time russ is going to completely protect it and i know that their defense is getting hammered by across the country. People are just destroying them as they should. There's no question about it. So i'm gonna take arizona's a better team. Seattle gets them this time. Because i think it's coming down to the last week or so. The season to who wins at division and this will tie them up and we may have to have another tiebreaker. I maybe it's just because kind of like the chaos of the division right. Rams are playing pretty good football. Three three six and three seattle in a close one but a high-scoring take the over going arizona. I i know that they're playing it. Seattle to and tonight. This is the first thursday night matchup where you're sitting back saying. Oh my god myself. My way to the tv agreed. So you're taking java zone. I'm gonna take seattle like you. I just think rose has had to back games in a row. He's still a great quarterback. He's going to have a good game. I don't think they're gonna lose twice in the same season arizona. Come see me in the playoffs. If they're both play like this i'll take arizona. They're winning its division unless phone. So i'm gonna tell you right out they win. They're not only winning the division they're going to start chasing down people for home field advantage in c. because green bay while good they're vulnerable. We've seen it tampa bay new orleans or the backup quarterback it's wide open so they went from a hopefully. They'll make the playoffs team to a budding. Mvp and a chance to not only win the visual be playing their acid home in the first round longer crazy. Isn't i'll get to you in a second josh lee. What's on your mind. Here on the stakeout. Well you know iraq. It's really pulled on the main straight yesterday. The world trade. The six people pick for pick year that topics teams protected that most likely convey to a future second round pick would the great idea with the tremendous effort to save money at all costs I know this lock cassation and all that now if you listened to earlier we said that the rockets yesterday made a move to save money. So we're not hiding from that. Didn't even say nothing negative about you guys but you did. My point is this is the all time low his franchise. We've never had owner like this before. I hope that ninety will stop supporting the rockets. Whenever y'all contract because of contracts should be devalued leaving joe lee and lee thank humana. I can tell you one thing. We appreciate the call. And i understand your frustration. One thing we're not gonna do is go away from the rockets. The one thing you can't do during a time when they're struggling all the sudden if everything if every time they went through a little bit of adversity or we didn't approve of a general manager. Not saying the rockets or of positional. Losing a superstar. Well then people would. Quit talking about the texans eric. Supporting the texans or the astros when they want sixty games you just don't you can't turn your back on a franchise happy. I have the same concerns that every every single fan does about the direction and their lack of ability to spend money. And they're cutting right. We're not gonna do is quit supporting the rockets now. You don't have to go to a game if you don't want the i understand but as a seven ninety group we're not just going to say oh. We don't like the rockets because they're struggling because james harden not here says a lifelong fairweather fads. Exactly right we're going to stick through this on our partnership with the rockets is outstanding. And hey we can't find the test character with everybody when you stay with somebody when maybe we disagree with things that are going on with the player trades. Or what have you but guess what. That's why we talk about it. That's our job not personal them. Like it's like i'm a fan. I am concerned with everything else as every other fan right and i understand your frustration with the team but i think that's also a long line the people's frustration. But you know you don't have to like what they're doing. But i'm also a fan. I've listened. I've been a fan of some teams. They've been a long road to get there but so our support will continue frustrations there. They ain't going away anytime soon. I don't think josh what you got for me. Lee thanks for the call now. The nfl there was a report yesterday. From jason mcintyre that was heavily disputed. That joe judge emaar colombo guide to fight colombo got the best of him. Yeah and he also got fired. Oh and has a lot of people know wednesdays in the nfl. Even by week is usually the busy day. That's when you get a lot of stuff done so my question is i know we always hear about players by each other and training camp and things like that. Have you ever seen two coaches physically. Fight each other while you're playing Seen him get close players to come in between five seen on a charter flight. Heading home from game. A coach over seat and getting a fistfight with the player on a plane. That's what you want is a fight on a plane. I've seen i've seen on the field a player go after a coach and have to be restrained. I've a million times. I've seen on the field and i could give you some epic in the locker room fights talking about epic where it was like a lead like like like with people get do. It was epic and the the winter was a surprising. If you've taken the underdog at it you said oh and then after you found out you realize this ain't no underdog he wasn't messed with the rest of the time Seen it yeah. I've seen it. I have never seen a coach. I remember back in the day when a player went punched. A head coach in indianapolis interface. My buddy ray butler who played wide receiver. Desean played the colts. You remember that story when a guy went across getting cut win across there and punch the coach right. I mean we got a fist. Fight with 'em players and coaches get after more than coach now in their own meetings. I'm sure they argued like crazy. It doesn't happen often. They coaches head. Coach and assistant coaches are punching. Each other and faith did happen. We had to hear. What was it. A guilty ryan a going after you see more of those that we're kind of in-between people break it up and they're arguing. Would you see. There's a lot of things that fans and media don't see because you just don't and back in the day you weren't privy to live with social media somebody's you know trying to tell something on everything because info inside information but i can tell you that. Yes those happen often now. It's not often that if this is true that a coach punched a head coach in a face for got the best of him That doesn't bode well. Marc colombo now. I put it. This way is is tough joe. Judge may be. That's the wrong way to tread guy was a player in the league about march gotta to be about six eight about three bills sixty and forty two our probably around the same age. You know that that. That's that's a fight you don't want dirty a and then mark colombo got fired. In a coach that had been with. Joe judge in the past is now the offensive. Line coach. colombo been dallas offensive line teacher for a few years and then jason garrett went with him obviously the endorsement of taking him with him to the giants right as the coordinator marks good coach and a bad man if mark if he did unload on him. Joe judge ain't feeling very well today. I promise you so. I don't know the inside of if if it was a scuffle argument. Because they had a philosophy disagreement he ran him out or if he was going to run him out in the he knew that and then he went after him and then the fight ensued and he said you're fired anyway. Or if it's just hogwash. They screamed and yelled at each other. Which happens all the time looking now. Focus on his music. He's a musician right. So and somebody knows headed music and colombo's a good player. I mean is good. Law offensive line coach More than likely he'll be employed. And i can tell you this. Those offensive line coaches are are feisty and they defend their guys and their position more than any position coach defenses. I promise you it's like if you offend instance. I would imagine. Mike devil is the same way. If you call a guy out there those offensive line guys. They want and talking about from from from mcnally in cincinnati all those days when he coached. Anthony manuals to tom. Cable tom about to the biggest baddest cats on the planet to the. Somebody's not johnny michaels. God rest his soul who our offensive line. Coaching minnesota randall. Mcdaniel gives every one of the best ever pat. Morris who i've been with you can go through a whole group of i'm gonna tell you something now. You start talking poorly on the field about their guys or in a meeting room. They'll take care of their guys. That's the way they feel. This is our fraternity. You wanna fight them. You fight one of those offensive lineman or the coach. Guess what you're doing damn right and we will know really to judge. Does have a black guy because i'm guessing since its biweekly nakata's per week or so and you probably won't even know the whole inside of the whole argument took place right because players probably worn around. Was they say that they were. They were going. They told him that they were hiring. Somebody to work. Don't it's a fistfight. Or he went after him and grabbed him and who knows you know probably we probably go make a bigger deal of it than it is but the bottom line is a guy lost his job. And there's another guy there. But that's why i love these offensive line coaches in their player. I do even though we criticize gonna tell you what the most loyal dudes on the planet to their coach or coach to their players. Is that position. And if you criticize and you wanna fight one you may as well just assume say i better bring army. Because i'm fighting them all. Those guys are brutally and chrissy. I'm talking about loyal as it gets which. I love him for that. I mean you. Like i said you talk about about one. I really bring on their all key. And the coach will defend their honor and he will literally fight. You literally fight you to protect his guys and you know what i frigging love that about offensive linemen and then they get home and by five o'clock they want that meal on the table and a cold beer so loved those dudes been there. The best sports talk seven ninety hour number. Two steve palo pro. Football focus next. Hey this is linebacker. Whitney mercilus listened to real texan salt on your smart speaker. Just ask alexa play. Sportstalk seven ninety on iheartradio. Zhongce ellsbury show continues. We're joined now. We are every week little adjustment this week because of all the nba. Talk and thank you to steve follow our senior analysts and they're senior analysts pro football focus. He joins us for adjusting his schedule. Steve welcome in i listen. I don't even. I know that the raw of the i wanna say rockets astros. But it's the texans. I know they're here and i know it's groundhog day. And i know the same thing happened. Can't defend the run and they rush for two hundred yards. I get it so let me hear romeo cordell at mentioned and i agree with him on a small part. Did he attributes their basically the run situation and run game on the offense and basically they've struggled in certain situations because of the training camp and the lack of an season. We'll in truth. We're not in pads in the off season and during otas and the rest of it and there's only it's not like you're forty seven practices and i know it matters. But other teams adjusted. I think i love romeo. I think it's a bit of an excuse but when you watch this team. How much should we attribute this offseason to their putrid ability. Not only to run the football but to stop the run. Yeah mean i. I think every teams in the same boat really something just say. It was the texan You know i think coming into the season. I ranked all the offensive lines. And i looked at the texans offensive line and said wow look at this. Last couple of seasons even proved in pass protection and adding laremy tunsil has been great and mac sharp been solid as far as just protecting the pastor. Just that part of game mcmartin sackful and titus. How they that's where there strengths ally. Dave built an offensive line just from just from. Pf simple numbers. We have pass blocking grades and we have run blocking grades and last season. This is how the offensive line was constructed. Did a much better job in. Pass pro You know watson was under pressure a lot but we talk on the. That's on him or a lot of that's on him so they've done a better job protecting the quarterback but they were not good in the run game last year or this year training camp. No and it doesn't matter So essentially this season from an evaluation standpoint. It looks a lot like what they were last season. You know it's just the nature of their offense of wine and I don't think it's a terrible thing. I think i'd rather be better in pass protection but yes you have to be able to run the ball effectively when you choose to and that certainly hasn't been there for texas. This is steve. Okay going in. You thought better. Okay we're gimme a were. They were ranked as far as the thirty two teams going just just their ranking overall offensive line. They were right in the middle of the pack. Okay because they were good impasse bro and not good from run blocking standpoint and that was a massive step up from previous years would you now looking at them now. High under overall. I'm not just talking about one. Part of the game. High high underachievers stayed where they are or gotten better. I think they've just about stayed where they are. I can look real quick and see where we have. I mean we still have them ranked as a top ten unit in pass protection and then from a run blocking standpoint. I mean it's what you might think. Twenty seven so you've got seven in pass locking twenty seven run blocking and you know it's not ideal being that far apart but it kind of shakes out to middle tier of line and that's just kind of what they ought. Okay at this stage of the game. I was asked this question yesterday. And so i'm gonna ask you see if if we're on the same page in the answer. Laremy tunsil if you had to do this over again and you were the well. We'll stop the texans. Would you make this move for two. First rounders no absolutely not. I mean there's there's just no it has nothing to do with tunsil as a player. I mean joe. Thomas the best tackle of this generation. If you if. I knew i was getting joe thomas. I wouldn't do it And again i for two first rounders. You're talking about the give up correct. First round the disconnect. I think for people in football versus say basketball and baseball in basketball stars at any position are stars and baseball starts at any position or stars. Whether you've gotta rightfielder third baseman or catcher of star can add value like a star. If you get a star left tackle. He's he not impact your team. The way a star anymore. Believe it or not or more valuable position can do Obviously quarterback receiver. Like if you know if you have a star receiver who's going to touch the ball and draping place. He will have far bigger impact. Or cornerback So i think in the nfl when you get a very good player like laremy tunsil but you give up to first rounders to get him. He has to have value to players to be worth it in a tackle. It's just almost impossible to do so for a team. That's lacking depth. That you know there. There were probably other options. They're all that said when they went from truly in davenport to laremy tunsil. That was huge part of the offensive line going from one of the worst to at least middle of the pack so it certainly helped the team. But i wouldn't make that move again because it's so difficult for one player to achieve value to steve palace. Solo senior analyst pro. Football focus joins us. All right steve. With i remember just well less than a decade ago or or or even less than that. It was quarterback when we when we talked about positions that we were like the had to have quarterback left tackle in some sort of disruptive right well as we go down the charts now and you talk you kind of mentioned it are is a left tackle and really one study offensive linemen. Where where would they fit in now. Where does that fit in. As far as a pecking order quarterback disruptor wide receivers since. We're in a passing. Where would that come in now because it almost feels like what we did to the running back. I'm not saying all the way but we've almost devalued that position because of what you're saying you gotta have the playmaker. You gotta have this. You gotta have that. Where does it sit in now. Yeah i like the look. The offensive line as a unit and texans are perfect example. And i mentioned this on our podcast all the time. If you have a disastrous offensive line you wanna creep back toward average you know if you have a In there as long as you have a middle tier offensive line. You should be able to create offense so that makes it difficult to completely overvalued left tackle talking about the most valuable players right now. Today's nfl quarterback a different stratosphere but receivers in corners. If you know if you're if you know you've got production out of them then. Those are those valuable players and then the left tackle. It's you know it's nice if if the left tackle is replacing a guy that's well below average but you just need middle class type of players which are tough to find in today's eye or valuable in today's nfl. Like an average guard or an average sector. Those guys are valuable as nfl. And you need you need the starting five to be good as a unit not just one and the other part is that the left tackle is not actually more valuable than the right tackle. You know the right tackles gotta you gotta block. Jj watt or has the bloch von miller and khalil mack. And you know you're blind side when you look into the left shawn when you're thrown to the left. What sides wind the one protected by the right tackle. That's not as there. But they moved the best guy away from your best lineman anyway steve. So it's both tackles now. There shouldn't be one more value placed on the other because coordinators are idiots. If you're otherwise week i'm going to move myles garrett to the right side to the defensive right well both tackles are of equal value. The left tackle the themselves. You know i. I don't think it's like the quarterback get the left tackle and then go from there You know get the quarterback yet playmakers get as many claim acres as you possibly can along the way and make sure that your office of line. Just a disaster. That's how i would look at offense of team building. Steve i want you and you always are honest but be as brutally honest as you can because i know how good he is and we've talked about iran's himself in a sacks i want the justices hardcore you're evaluating as if you're gonna draft him forget the statistics just look at everything is to shawn watson better today than he was sixteen games ago so this year is interesting because i think he's i think i do think he's played a little bit better and you know it. It's not that some of those weaknesses have completely disappeared. You know those things are still there. The the Inviting pressure and taking sacks and all that stuff but for for play playing for a team that has been you know behind most of the season and playing games that they have not been. Winning wasn't done an incredible job. And taking care of the ball fried. He is real not just looking at interception. Totals but you know by our numbers. He's it's not like he's firing the ball the linebackers and getting lucky and I i think it's decision making has really taken a step forward so And just from game to game standpoint. We've been on here many times talking about if he can just avoid those disastrous games. He has he hasn't had any of those games like he had in the past the bills. Game in twenty eighteen. I believe it was last year against the ravens and a couple of the games along the way with there's multiple fumbles turnovers. And he hasn't done that. So i do walk and taking a step forward. And it's one of the more underrated stories of the year because nobody knows texans aren't winning games and it's actually really tough to not win games when you have a quarterback played at that level which i think shows just how four everything is around him. It's mostly on the side of the ball so i like walking. I like where he's taken on. I think he's moved further up in the quote unquote. Ub rankings this year. And i think he's special with they're still more spent they're still another level to his game and we know that little presence in the pocket and and make sure understands hot reads in blitzes and that special steve. One more thing about him. Steve pol senior analyst pro football focus. Can you can you put your finger on why he and his team. And when i say never i'm pretty close to right. I rarely say always and never in sports. They never start fast. Why is it so now. They get down two touchdowns i can count on him to throw. He's gonna get you back in the game. Always but why is it that this team looking at tape. Why are they so pissed. Poor the first quarter and a half or two quarters. That's a tough one. Because i don't i don't have a good answer for the i. Don't give a good answer for the y. you know. it's i think. I think play callers just sometimes have a good feel for that stuff. And i think callers treat though i fifteen or so differently. Sometimes it's like let me just throw a lot of stuff out there and see how the defense response. And then. I'll pick and choose which way i want to go for. The next fifty plays right others. You know the college shanahan's always gonna. I've seen him described as a storyteller as a playcaller right. It's not just run run. Pass pass run. it's. I'm going to run this running play and then there's going to be play action off of it and there's gonna be a jet sweep off of that same look at the story and it just all build and you and sometimes you see a kyle. Shanahan i fifteen and it's just spectacular. It's like how did he do that right. You know he just. He made everything. Look exactly the same and had a different answer for it. And it's like and then they moved the ball downfield before you know it. They've got seven points. So i think there's some rhythm to the play calling in that first fifteen that's probably lacking in houston Right now but it's really talked to say why don't they actually do well. Why don't they call better plays. It's really tough to pinpoint other than i think. I think the play calling in a game planning standpoint. Just some coordinators is better than others at that you know started the game all right. Let's go on this. Got about thirty seconds. Who's the mvp in the league would just past the midway point. Oh man. I think right now. Body of work. it's it's probably aaron rodgers. he's our highest rated quarterback. Pf s and you know most valuable player Patrick mahomes we'll probably get there. I think mahomes so many people are looking at homes and say well. He's got twenty five touchdowns and one interception therefore he's the guy He's not the guy because of those twenty six plays. He's interception lock. You've got six touchdowns on screen. So holmes isn't there yet but probably will be there because he's awesome and he's going to you know play played. Great turned the second half of the year. But i like. I look at rogers and mahomes right now. Murray starting to play his way at least into some chatter. That's for sure. So it's fun to watch we get. We're lucky with some coppin. Quarterbacks and rogers is just stupid. Good steve great stuff man. We will talk to you. Next tuesday before available before thanksgiving. Are we still good for next.

Show sportstalk seven ninety taking your calls. While we're at st palo say about not only this team. The future and the quarterbacks plan the needs of an offensive line. Would you do the laremy. Tunsil deal again. Not the tunnel is not a good player. He doesn't think any lineman for two first rounders. He's right and right maybe very correct. We are actually devaluing. The left tackle position not us. But it is. Because i keep trying keep were gotta get a left tackle. Go and watch football on sunday. Every good defensive team with one good player moves the guy. Yeah the right tackle is even. If you're not a left handed quarterback that it used to be that all your left hand got to protect your backside. If you're a full field quarterback the frontside at times can be your backside. Okay so the truth. Is you better have a right tackle and left tackle. And they built better. Be damned good and you'd better have some interior guys too because if not the rivers and the breezes of the world and the brady's they'd prefer you to be able to defend interior wise pass rush than ex year because they north and south climbers of the pocket. So you go watch the good defensive teams if there's no longer all he's the left defensive end or the right defensive and if he's a edge rusher he plays everywhere and if you if there's a weakness they're going to line that dude up there and attacked the weakness so would you do the deal again for two first. Rounder steve palo zola says. No one has anything to do. With how good laremy tunsil is. It's the simple fact it. There's that are more needed in two first. Rounders are more important than one offensive lineman according to a guy who watches every single team every single player. Great tape every single week. Let's get the mardi mardi welcome in man how you doing. Hey i'm all right side. Hey man Hello the bumps. un and your whole team up there listening. I think steve has some great points. But i'm gonna tell you something. I think it's a little deeper than that. I think it's a little bit more accessible. First of all i believe that and i listen. My friends are probably put my football car for this. But let me tell you. I don't believe that the texans offensive line is as bad as it looks. Here's what i believe that. This same offensive line. Gary kubiak on different offensive coordinator coach would perform differently. They would they would have more rollouts. More strikes plays which when a which would which would complement the rpo that we do. And i don't think we use running backs properly. You know running up a good and all but come on man that we don't have those type of running backs. I believe that the reason that we also get off to these slow start is because we're not We're we're planning to counter attack instead of plantar strength you know. And and if we get the shawn watson a good coach that will allow him to. I mean the quarterback quotes specifically for him allowing him to audible some of these obvious glitches and pressured. I promise it it's gonna take this guy to another level. Hey marty let me ask you. And i we got about a minute and ryan will get to you after the break. So stay there and the rest of the callers. But i do want to address this part of it. I mean. so you're taking every every ounce of this is on. The coach is not one of its on the players. I love your take. But i disagree with you. I think it's both. And i understand. And i think he does have some flexibility to to get out of bad plays. I'm a huge. Listen i watch is one of the five best players at his position. A league and i think there's another level to his game but many of those sacks that come on there those are those those are cited just blitzes. He misses and so he's got he's easy. We're to the point his career he can't miss cited just blitzes because he wants to step out of it. Sometimes you've got to catch the ball. Put his foot in the ground and throw a hot read which he misses because he trusts his ability to run out of it so much any any runs into sacks that is on him and as far as the president and let me finish as far as the offensive line. I know you said we don't have like a derrick henry or a guy running inside you can't just live by getting the edge. You've got a pound the ball inside. So yes the back. Scott open there is the offensive line has gotta move it and steve photos old say they weren't good. They're not very good in the run game and they don't come out of the locker room with an attitude you're right. They play passive as opposed to aggressive but they are very good at pass protection they just run block and they're not very good at it and it's a trend so something's wrong here. I agree with you that there's definitely something wrong and we'll both agree. That and let me tell you this before i leave. Is i believe that james aren't gonna rule today. He turned down that fifty million dollars. He's the game is changing. The whole atmosphere is changing. He's got rule the day that he turned down at fifty million dollars mark. I'm gonna let you get mardi gras great insight brother thank you. I appreciate disagree on that. He's now. I appreciate the call my man thanks for the end. I love the passion. I don't think he's going to rue the day. Because i think james he's contaminate regardless. He may rue the day that he turned it down here. Because he's he. This is houston and they love him and he his carte blanche hair inside the organization. You may be right about that. But fifty million here forty five million somewhere. He's going to get paid. Mardi out. But i i understand. I think people are bothered if he does leave because well. He's leaving the city that we'd like to have really good player like that so you make good points on it. But there's a lot of things teaching and player so the responsibility falls on coaches and players when it comes to football it's not just one or the other and you get an aggressive playcaller in here but you know. Bill has had some times of it when he does here tim. Kelly said it's the consistency that bothers me and the slow starts. Make me my head. One exploded drives me frigging nuts. We'll come back and discuss sports. Talk seven ninety hour number three next bill longtime friend. Sean salisbury this. Is the sean salisbury. Show albury our number three taking your calls on. would you have done the laremy. Tunsil deal for two first rounders knowing what you know about this team. Listen everybody talks about a bell cow. Tackle in one guy you got to have more than one. And they're good. Pass protecting not very good and this is not his laremy tunsil any good great feat. Good punch good athleticism. He's really good player. It's not is he. Good it's was two first rounders for him too much for that position. Forget who's fulfiling it. I mean there's very few guys in the league at that position i think quin nelson's dominant as areas and. I don't think anybody give two first rounders forum today president and he's a great player. I go back. I definitely wouldn't do the deal. And i'm just trying to think of other houston trades that you'd go back and not do got to tough five. Yeah and going to be a roller every year right. The deals are going to go back. I wouldn't do would be deals. That sucked right. This guy can play. Yeah so you still. It's not well you guys don't like larry. i think. Laremy tunsil fabulous. It was too much but we knew it was too much right. And looking at the franchise now Do you still feel that way. So it's like receiver. Do i want one great one. Now if i had hopkins in this group it'd be great to have one great one or do i want four really good ones. I know what. I'd rather have a great one. We talked about that before i see. I'd rather have four really good ones. We thought that going to have four right not not here now but if those four really good ones were really good all the time. I'd rather have that now if you had one great one in three hours. Now you give me hopkins with two okay once in another really good one. I'll take that you get my point. I can't just have one dude and the rest are trash. I'm not talking about here. He's like years for head. Andre johnson forever and their next best receiver was kevin. Walter good player but you get my point. Yeah right and it's the same offensive line. If i got one good offensive. I'm not saying that these guys can't be good. There's still some growth. They gotta get better here. But if i have one dominant player at that position ought to stay away from him as a defense. I can handle him right. It's like anything else. I can handle him. This ain't like basketball or one dominant player. Beat you one dominant. Tackle doesn't prevent you from losing a lot of games as a lot of other things that are important so Just curious if he's worth in what you think overall moving forward what we're gonna do here with texans although it's not a big topic because well when two and seven not a lot of people wanna talk about you or maybe they do even more. So than when you're seven and two knows ryan in abilene. What's up john. And my question has had nothing to do with the texans. But have you seen a year where. There's so many quarterbacks auditioning veterans for next year year with cam. Dolphin jameis winston. Maybe even alex smith trying to get the job for next year and asked the first part of that question. I yeah i. I know the names. What was your question. Have you ever seen a tom. Were backup quarterback for veteran. Quarterbacks are trying to audition like james hopes to be the guy next year right new orleans right. Andy dalton wants another shot kamlesh to stay put and maybe even alex smith. I don't know if cam wants to stay put. But i i'm with you ryan. Thank you all answer. That question great gets a great question. I appreciate it for me. I can think all backup quarterbacks kind of i could tell you this all of them. If you've got one year left on your contract feel like back in my day back or all auditioning because you either want to get a long term deal with your get a chance or if the starter liking jameis winston situation that there's a good chance or at least a would seem let's save fifty fifty that drew brees and come back that he's going to go to nbc and broadcast that. He's auditioning for his own team. And you did mention ryan and you may be right. I mean. I don't know how i don't know what the market is for cam away from new england. It's tough enough to get him because he's so one week it's like disguise really good still like this week. He's probably gonna look off right and then the two week three weeks ago for four straight weeks he was asked. Yes so it just depends on what cam but he's auditioning for the patriots. Asu right and other teams janus. Is alex smith coming back from injuries. Putting up numbers eight. It's don't win much there. And what a great comeback store that dalton's hurt and banged up. So yes you know with his situation so yeah no ryan great question the auditioning as far as guys wanna be starters and i can tell you this right now that group you just named. It'll be lucky if two of them are starting off football teams next year. Lucky if to hell. Jimmy garoppolo's in an audition if he were to come back right now because the forty niners aren't sure what their future is with him with his contract status and he doesn't get to audition well because he's hurt. But yes it's great great point ryan. I don't know when we looked at it. But then i think okay teddy bridgewater. Last year was auditioning andy. Dalton eventually was going to be replaced with the first round pick so he started his audition Hell when jarrett stidham got a little bit of work. He was auditioning so the backup. Usually is always fitzpatrick. I mean you're always auditioning because you're hoping that there's one team that gives you that chance but as far as guys that could make that impact. Winston seems to be the most logical next. But andy what what are you gonna pay him if he leaves you know. He hasn't had a chance to really do a saying on a piss. Poor team defensively. So but winston is winston and newton right now are the most. I don't actually think. Ryan that and i think anybody's giving alex smith a chance to start again. He may stay there and win a job while he's there. Nobody's going to sign him to come in and be the star. If you're bringing alex smith then its to be veteran. Backup gives you security if the guy. Because he's a true pro a great comeback. He's still a really good player. All those things. It's the of all those names. We mentioned that. Really the two right now winston and cam newton are auditioning to be starters next year wherever that might be new england for cam or somewhere else and and also james winston and if dwayne haskins gets any run at the end of the year when they're completely out of it if haskins gets run and those up three games would somebody say i'll trade a third round pick forum and we'll take him that could be or he gets cut and they send him out there so he may get an audition chance. But you're right the the winston thing and winston's in the best position because he's a thrower still young and they know they put numbers up and he's on the is in the best offense. Yeah key the truth is. He has no reason not to succeed if he does not succeed. You can't blame the playcaller campaign the offensive line. Blind blair webpage. It's just it's just the fact that he doesn't play well. Is this the biggest audition in. Nfl history. I mean you always hear about the backup coming in for the injured quarterback things like that but is this the biggest all right. This guy hasn't really turned out how we thought he was but he was the number one. Pick this show to prove everyone that he actually is really good in. Could be a franchise quarterback for the next five ten years if he goes and let's say he plays lights out for a month right. Let's say drew's gone a month and a guy plays lights out and goes all teddy bridge. Now here's the thing winstons. More talented physically. Throwing the ball bridgewater's bridges search and bridgewater's good player are the the the intrigue about james winston as we've seen really good and he's the former first pick of the draft but we've also seen like do discs came see. We thought mario was going to be in the same position in oakland. Depending on carbon cars played well enough. I still call them all. Contact the right las. Thanks so with winston it could be one of them Josh because this was a guy like we say. How do you had ten interceptions and thirty touchdowns last year. Tom brady would not be the quarterback in tampa he would have got paid one hundred million dollars and would be there. He earned ninety. Would you know what i'm saying. He would have got that next big contract so it may be and anything. Let's say a team like washington doesn't pick i pick sixth and winston goes off for four weeks. You say big money. He going to have to pay him. The biggest. my did a teddy fifteen to seventeen million bucks. Go start seeing if we see if we still got it if not then we're not we won't be tied to them and we'll go draft the guy the next year you get my point. Yeah so yeah. It's a huge audition and it's not a long one you don't think now it's going to be a short one but i'll tell you what if they see the flash if he if he protects the football and they win he's going to get paid somewhere and it may very well. Be new orleans may say dude. We'll sign you a two year deal or three whatever it is and we'll pay seventeen million bucks. A year drew's leaving here the quarterback but a very favorable of a team friendly contract right. Yeah forgive say okay. You did it for five weeks. I need you to do it for sixteen games next year. And we'll load it with incentives to you can make twenty two million bucks or whatever it is if your lights out right. Yeah so the only other. I guess option or the one that i can think of and this is just because i don't know what happened when steve young kenyan for joe montana was that at first due to injury or was that jury. Okay joe joe at his back okay. Let me tell me tell you something. I talked to a starting offensive linemen face to face. We had media talk to starting offensive line. He said sean you think just to show you. This is the at the time the greatest quarterback of all time right montana and some still think he is. I i understand it. D- realized this lineman told me he goes youth think that it was just the simple fact. Modern medicine got joe back on the field with that back injury that quick. He said all that helped he goes. But don't kid yourself joe's competitors. He knew the guy behind him. 'cause when steve came empty played well as one year. They went undefeated and so in order to get even the great joe. Montana can have some insecurities starting quarterbacks. Of course they do. It was sore drives them. They don't want anybody to even take the kneel down snap right so he said sean. Don't kid yourself. Joe got back. Not just because modern medicine worked hard but he knew that the play the objects are closer than they they appear. Right and steve was lights out. He goes in the hall of fame too. So what a great transition for the forty niners. But even joe montana so that exam. Glad you ask that because that exactly he told me that face to face. And i'm like joe. Montana said yeah and the guy behind him was pretty good yeah. There's a good reason for not bad playoffs several around and he struggles it right. He's done aside from those two the only other group that's really been in their way where it's back to back. Oh my gosh is farben. Rogers weren't just been like no brainer. That there's an argument who at times was better at the time right. I mean you have the argument for both. Although i still think people would say montana's better than young. But steve is about as accurate as quarterback we've ever had not named drew brees so there you have it sportstalk seven hundred we will continue to discuss taking your call seven three two one two five seven hundred the draft last night. Well didn't get much here but maybe we're going to get these two studs. Stay in here. The two veterans superstars or will they be somewhere else before we blink sports. Talk seven ninety. This is the john salisbury. Y'all house breach. Don't you wish there is a whisper. Wishlist you could go on and say this guy this guy this guy this guy for your football team. Yeah it's called man. That's what i do it at are you. Are you to in seven and matt now play madden anymore. I stopped two years. I just i got tired of it. I really don't touch my video games anymore. That's got like you know. I mean i started the insuring a grown adult being ready to move into a home. What's going on with you. Yeah by the way are. Don't hey no kids coming. Don't worry budget dogs in a bunch of and searching for one and now one got scooped up before we go in a hurry right now brother with these interest rates there. Those things are if you're at a seller's market well the truth is buyer and seller buyer because the interest rate sellers. If you want to get rid of it you want you decide. You need to get eight. More to see today is going to be a busy day. Your ass is going to be dragging dude around three thirty. We're not starting until to see it. Seven nats you're coming home with joan naptime my ass going to the gym after this. Are you nap guy. i know. sometimes. I go actually. I'm about once every six weeks napa guy when you finally catches up to you but here's mine used to have those not like. I had a night the other night where i i woke up at two fifteen. Couldn't wake up right those nights where it's late and you just can't get to sleep whether you jacked up. Whatever it is right so for me. Naps and josh. I'll i'll get your opinion here. You're you're young so you probably nap like a college kid. But for me like sitting either a chair on a couch watching a show or something and doing something and i get that fifteen minute or relieve your head back and he fall out for a second while you're leaning over and i wake up on a cell wake up refreshed. Wake up here dr. When you hear doctors say yeah those catnaps those fifteen to twenty thirty minute naps perfect and you know what i used to laugh to get the hell out but i do feel better. Here's where i feel my worst. Is that the worst. My worse and where i feel you know at my worst nap poison. I feel much worse. Is that m- our twenty minute. Nap nap. see to me. I wake up more. Sluggish drives me nuts. I if i knew the exact says sean at twenty two minutes get your ass up and they only happen once every six to eight weeks where you just so exhausted that your mind needs. It's more mental exhaustion for me. The finally fall out. And take that. And you're like oh man you start slobbering on yourself and you wake up this nap and i feel better but when i have that one like i am going to lay in bed and take a nap. And it's like two hours to my. My eyes burn more miserable. I feel way better. Do you really. Yeah when i took one the other day for you the me up the other day after like thirty five minutes of that nap and i was in a horrible mood because i was i was out right and ram sleeping at a high need like an thing to last like at least an hour and a half. So you're ninety minutes or more guy. Oh yeah i will take to be more take a three hour. Now take one now. It's rare to get me to take one but you can do it if you're allowed if it's out i could take one today right because last night i woke up at to twenty but go pee and i never really. I never really fell asleep. But i didn't really fall asleep. How was passed out before. But i drink way too much water from independence. You start drinking water at six or seven pm your skirts. Because he adds about six o'clock. I'm like i feel dehydrated have enough today. And then all of a sudden sitting here pattern these articles about seventy s cups between six and nine you get back to you get paid back because to our night's sleep right just when the rim sleep kicks in you gotta wake up but back to your point of of getting that nap in that that three at. Here's the key today for you to don't go home and i can't lay down right all right. Eat right scenario after that. I'm going to work out aids workout. Do whatever you do. Don't get too cozy. Because you know that is man. You'll get that nap and then you'll get woke up and our laurels kissed the whole time. God this is rate joshua napper. You got your texas a and m. here you're northgate. Night out you've got your. Are you still college. Napping so in college actually really never decide how hard academic schedule had been credit hours. I mean you take sixteen sixteen. I always nafta tech colleagues. See i was eight. Am class i was done classes by ten. Was the ada and between eight and noon where you can get that nap in the spring when we didn't have spring practice and i got to the point because taking summer classes goes up there working out so i got ahead so i like my senior like one class one day type of thing so you could like. Oh gosh isel nice. I can sleep till eleven in college everybody sleeps. Don't we mean feel like everybody. Just sleeps it whether it's because you're thursday night fraternity sorority party. Or you're just because you can't exactly right bob and dad's saying hey get your butt to school right so you say you are napper now josh. Not so in alabama. Ainun would do it sundays if i'd nfl games are bad. Ones out are basically big game. Tailgate all that night before now. I'm michael if i'm going to take a nap. It always ends up being the two or three hour nap. Because if i try and do the fifteen minute nap i'd have to set an alarm in for those quick naps Force myself to go to sleep that quick so it just doesn't work for me and i just don't feel refresh after taking those quick naps nowadays. I really don't nap ever lonely. Timeout ever nap is if i've win. These schedules were like say. I'm doing like a morning show here. And then the next day i don't have to go into like eight. Pm during the day. Because then i know. I can sleep those two or three hours. Stay up till twelve one. Am and be okay. But now if i nap during the day and have to get up early in the next day. I'm i'm not gonna go to sleep game has to be unintentional to like if i felt like when i took the nappy of the day. It's not an. I try to lay down and i won't see that's for me. Mines gotta be to get the rest. That i want even like i said even if it's twenty five minutes thirty minutes max when it's just doing some let me just lay my head back here right now doing her. Doing our code of conduct training yesterday afternoon that we have to do everything out. I was like at that. I was on that teetering point. I was like yeah now. Did i get if i did. I would have slept about three. Those things will put you have to follow the videos now. We gotta do it. No problem but i understand why it makes a little tired so with that i'm with you. I can't but there are times you'll be sitting. I'm sprinting home to get the sheets right. But when i do that. That's what i most sluggish. I gotta get that impromptu. Oh my gosh. That's twenty five. Gimme boom and then when i do that i got a pop back up and then i gotta go if i got errands to run and got got to do it. 'cause then you can sit around and go back to that re sluggish mode. So i'm curious folks out there adults. You got college kids time. Nap is during texans games. I'm not kidding. I find myself the packers game. There's sleep. i fell asleep at the beginning of third quarter. Adds up the rest of the game. I find it easier to to fall asleep on sunday. Nfl than i do. Saturday college agreed or disagreed. Yeah i think. It's also your second day off of the week in the youngest more reliable mondays days. I don't usually like too much going on saturdays and sundays church. You're up if you go to church then brunch though that mid morning after church if you go early morning church on my son hey before during football or not and you come home that brunch. Especially if it's like. I love like you know biscuits and gravy or like i love chicken brench place i go to this fried chicken boneless with gravy and the biscuits and gravy with chip from a you know fried chicken. You guys don't heaped with the white sausage gravy. You hit them. Sheets stolen mmc on their tea. Your a bloody berry. Now say that to me. You do the most bloody mary. That's the way you're going to have a headache before you fall asleep. And then you're gonna wake up with even worse headache that's why you gotta overload with the biscuits and gravy or fried chicken biscuits and gravy absorb all. That's exactly right. So i'm curious. Now there's we got business on. We got sports fans. We got construction workers. We got people who got great truckers. That are driving across. Listen to us moms at home. Moms go to work. Moms that our bosses. And ceos moms and dads. It raised three kids got college. Kids know they. Now do you nap. And what's the perfect. I'm looking for the perfect nap blank. Maybe it's different for everybody but if you're a doctor out there please call us to but are you a napper and are you a quick stint napper. The long napper like mc likes the length. I like the guy. I like the shorter ones. That didn't sound right did it. Mc likes the length. I just to ask goes sports doc. Seven ninety seven one three two one two five seven ninety. How important are naps to you and do you. And what's your strategy curious. Sportstalk seven nine hundred seven one. Three two five. Seven ninety. Sean salisbury very show continues indigo doc. Seven hundred talking about your naps. And what's the perfect length of naps. I'm talking about and if you're a napa whether you're sixty year old or twenty year old or somewhere in between de nap. How often is it. Something that's on your regular schedule. You wish you napped more naps overrated. All that just kind of came to me. Because we're you know people schedule and i'm wondering kovic created more naps or more stressed. It's not allowed people in. I'm not sure so just where you stand. Let's get to kevin kevin. Houston what's up man. How's it going all good. Yeah man. I love now the the best not to ever had. We're from Watching golf i would imagine it is just like the john deere. Classic if it's not somebody at the top of the leaderboard maybe a nondescript although it's important to him that will get you around two thirty in the afternoon for a quick one. I get that. Yeah absolutely get You're sitting there. You're watching that. And i'm not a big nascar fan but that will give me a nap today. Wanted to get out real quick. what's the best lengthen app along. I can do. i can either do. Twenty minutes to three hour okay. All right yeah go ahead. What were you gonna say. It's going to give a shout out. My son goes saying into props to you too. And then i went to access tax so props to Was guns up. Yep there you go hey Real quick i wanted to say I really disappointing. And james harden on the fact that you know he he always wanted somebody there you want it. We got white tower there. Iran him off. We got Chris fall there. He ran him off now. He wants to run off russell. Westbrook and i feel like we've just done everything forehand and i i just don't get fair enough man. Thank you for the call. I understand it. One bit yeah. I think that there's a lot of people that are frustrated. Yeah frustrated with it Now daryl's not here in the frustrated with it. They have rolled out the red carpet for james. There's nothing james harden he may not like some you know some of the players around him that he's been playing with whatever but i can tell you that i'm sure some of the players are standing around watching either yeah. James harden has no should have no complaints about how this none zero about the opportunities. He's been given this about. How absolutely should have done nothing. Because everything's been catered to want and desire everything it's every single part of it's been to make sure he's happy. Yeah i it's been eight years of it. I mean literally got here and construct it to help him however he felt was the best way to do it and it it just. You never thought he was gonna be this guy to do to do this. You always suspect it with nba star that they pull this kind of crap but Especially when you've been given the keys of the car and then you do this is just. It's it's mind blowing. I don't know why he would Me i know they to chase it. Ring probably somewhere. That's that's what he's thinking. I mean you're going to go somewhere for a couple of years and then what what if you don't get it you're going to sit back and probably say that was stupid of me. Guess the i had everything there right. Because i find it hard. Press if he goes to brooklyn he doesn't get the same carte blanche because there's two other dudes that wanted to right you go to you gotta fill. You may get some of it. But it can't be the same at this stage of your career. Even though daryl morey there because doc rivers we'll talk say hey we can't do this doc doesn't seem like the type that's gonna let you run the show all the time yeah. He had everything here and still does if he wanted here. If he's gonna stay here. I mean including o and they had you had. You don't have to give him an extension if you don't want it didn't have to offer extension you didn't he doesn't get to dictate if he gets traded that thing as much like harden and we like his game you didn't have to but to offer a one hundred and three million dollar extension for two years and it to be turned down. How about how about this is that everything would hey. Wouldn't we all think about your career is any of us in all our listeners that you had that kind of carte blanche in your building ob credible forget the money but michael berry wins. Like half michael berry. I know you listened to somebody. Get michael berry. If you're listening to both at the same time you listen to newstalk and politics one sports and the other have michael berry come near the studio. Take a take a braille james harden. What is it like to have the same. Pull it ability that james harden has. That's one hell of a point here works. it is Here's a real quick a year from now. If james harden is still in in houston on this day in one year what is more likely. He signs an extension at that point or is trading in a year and a year. The sto- hair. What happens this year. Who who had no idea okay. It's okay so just just taking is russ here. Not now if he's here year for another playing games. Let's just say after this season after this season is completed. Is it more likely that he signs an extension or gets traded if he plays the entire year in houston and they don't win a championship. The sets the same samsung. Yeah i'm not giving any guarantees and we'll have the season plays out gone. I think that if he has to do with how they treat. I mean i feel comfort level. I think if he plays here this year. It's more likely he takes the extension because they'll offer the fifty million dollars a year again. See i just don't think deals going to get done that quick so i honestly kinda don't feel like there's a chance if it doesn't happen in the next two or three weeks. I don't think happens until summertime next year. And i think that if eight and out ain't happened until then i think in start putting his feet to the fire knowing that i mean he he could be going into his last year contract next year. And he's got that fifty million bucks sitting there in front of james harden loses money. We know james harden taylor. And i think if you go if he plays here this season time heals all wounds right next year and you offered him fifty million bucks for two years. Yeah he plays he. I think that's more like that. I'm not saying it's a guarantee. I just think it's more likely. But if he stays this year though he's gonna stay and they're going to give him the extension whether he stays or not so the likelihood he's gonna stay 'cause he's gonna sign that extension if he decides not if they don't trade him. Yeah i think so so that would mean to answer your question because these teams that could want to go get him in a year. You're right and you want to pay him. Fifty million a year if you trade for you're trading form you're signing him to an extension that's like forty million dollars a year which is not quite fifty forty seven fifty counting right right but at forty seven million an he one way or the other. He's making about ninety five million to one hundred and five million here or somewhere else. He can make a lot more here. Yes i think. I think man. I think it matters to james harden. I mean it's too much to walk makes go back off after a year. You think there's more smoke than fire on this from him. Yeah all right. We'll discuss sportstalk. Seven ninety sounds very show. Hey craig visuals listening to the home of the astros in your home. Just tell your smart speaker play. Sports talk seven ninety on iheartradio the sean selves very show continued sportstalk seven ninety six. I can't wait to throw now. Nice music probably not gonna throw down vittles next week.

That's against that's i mean that's good provide. Yeah all right so naps or the question. You're talking sports. Obviously about the rockets and texans always rockets. Were taken an nap last night. During the draft right and they did that sixteenth pick now belongs to detroit areso or say belonged belonged and and still does after they make the pick. The top three picks went edwards from georgia. Anthony wiseman from dice. Anthony yeah changed. Its anthony edwards james wiseman and lamelo ball in the first three picks of this draft and klay thompson news of waiting today to find out if he's out for the season on the lower right leg injury which is different than his acl on his left knee. And this is down near the ankle. He'll achilles area. We'll see what that does they're all flying down to los angeles apparent like the warriors are good that that has to be me. Yeah yeah you're gonna go two years implying basketball. Yes and maybe never again. I mean he's over thirty now and the sad thing about it is and he's a workout. He's he keeps his mouth shut and plays his ass off on chains changed landscape the worst. Yes and it's obviously changed of the people. Thought it was going to change who they picked but wiseman is just a got a chance to be a great player. Take him yesterday when somebody called the rockets take quite thompson for james harden. Maybe they're warriors should've called offered that up staying and we started talking. Where'd you start talking about somebody and all of sudden and you're talking about in a way you don't wanna talk about him because he's hurt and naps trying to get it here thirty minute naps. The three hour nap do you nap. Do you need an app. Are they overrated. What's the lengthy nap. Does it refresh your make you more like the at a lot of times. I wake of a nap if it's longer than thirty minutes pissed off brewed like. I'm just like a semi unapproachable. I just it on my modeling career doesn't feel like it's going to take off your curves. Never gonna take to. It's exploding on the scene. You see me work the catwalk before night. Turn at the top of the catwalk. Don't think that's frigging unbelievable. It's a really nice turn. Sling some hip into it. My hair flows through it. Oh that's right my head shaved but yeah worked the catwalk so it really affects my modeling career. The nap long but i do like the quickey. Well i mean who doesn't right mc ever hurt anybody. So i do like quick that but i'm just curious how many people i wonder. Ceo's doctors honestly people in positions where they've got a see oversee everything jobs kind of twenty four seven right where they're at home at midnight. Somebody calls a stock options. We need to know. We need to have a shareholders meeting right that i wonder where they don't know how they sleep but then they got family and grandkids and their kids go to school and they got a wife for all those things right. I wonder and then trying to get some normalcy in their life. But i wonder how often you know like i said i read all these books. Not only motivation but self help novel read them all and you know you get every like the how to manage your time things. I've been reading forever trying to learn something new from somebody and hopefully you're speaking of managing your time hopefully bill brian's doing that in his time off learn how to manage time. Well he'll get another chance to coach. So let's hope he is because they and also going to the checklist of things. I did well and things. I didn't to check off so i wonder if like if a ceo like a restaurant or a doctor who provides surgeries. Right and. I know they're so busy. I think about when i went in for my and my knee. Replacement knocking out three and four four a day. I'm like is there a time when he goes into his office and says don't you dare knock on my door for the next twenty minutes. I know i don't have any guys. Take care of it. And i'm taking this power nap because i would think they've got to be pretty focused. Their gig yeah. You don't want to say it. So i wonder if they come out of that. A little more groggy does doctor drink red bull before i always line. There's do that. Would you operate on me. But i get it but i wonder if there's like is a kenyan. Can you have too much caffeine in your system if your surgeon. Are you allowed to do that. So what. I've actually heard from a buddy who is trained to be a doctor right right. He says that they pretty much aren't allowed to do or drink. A red bull because of the crash right and there is. I'll say rumors. I don't know of any accusations of doctors who will do a line of cocaine instead of drinking red bull. Because that's so much better. I am imagine over. Are you doctoring. Heavy use cocaine one three two one thousand five hundred ninety. You would think over the course of time that there's been doctor. I mean then. Lifelike sports all by the way or pd's like robbie can no anyway. But i just wonder about that. We know the protocol for like a pilot that gets on there right that tested and had have so much recipe. I guess there's a pilot has to have. I don't know if it's twelve hours. You know between flights were you when you're done. You can't four hours later. Pop back on start piling another flight for obvious reasons. So i always wonder with. Ceo's or doctors if they are like okay get twenty. I have to have this twenty minute nap. So i feel refreshed right so i'm just wondering where that is with people in your life and how much napped matter to you. Let's get to steve and north west. Houston steve guys doing today. Good you know. i'll be honest with you. I never sit down and say you know what i need a nap. But i don't know if it's just me or maybe it's you too. I have a recliner and it doesn't matter what time of day i could be wide awake if i get that kleiner in the right position not too far back not too far forward but if i get in the right position i don't care what i'm doing i can fall asleep stage city. You stay out of the recliner on purpose. i can't we. We just bought it. And i got rid of i o couch so i'm stuck in it and the one thing that really pisses me off when my girlfriend goes hey wake up your snoring and it's like are you kidding me. I was right in. I mean i i. I was super bowl steve. Great call thank florida. I love that because yeah that's my favorite. Hey wake up your snoring. While the while the person who's not snoring is wide awake like it's in the middle of the day. They're doing something as if you really thought that it was wise to wait. I'm in my and i'm not a snore. But you're i can be a general okay. The urine you're ram sleep and you get tat's she's nor so she doesn't wake me on her up when when somebody's in that deep depth and they need it let you know what. Take a walk actually. When i woke up this morning she was on her back in snoring. She'll kill me for saying that but whatever. Her mouth is wide open. Yeah napster important to some some some live by them every day so i wonder if people in positions of power if like they shut their door and say don't bug me and for twenty minutes they just get that power nap you know. I i wonder how many like cassia ios or big bosses or guys like that. They're so organized loss falsely. Be your desk and say with the door. Open your boss. yeah. I agree screw you that. Yeah this is my house. Yeah exactly like that. Sports talk seven hundred a year napper. Why and how. And if you're snoring you do not want your girlfriend or your significant other to wake up. That'll piss you off right you off things that make people pissed. It's funny. don't wake a man up out of his nap or female because you may have to deal with the wrath the rest of the day sportstalk seventy hour number. Four texans steve solo on earlier. Matter of fact. We'll hear what steve said about laremy tunsil and if the trade was worth it. And here's how he approached. We'll get to that next sportstalk. Seventy bill longtime friend sean salisbury. This is the sean salisbury. show salisbury. Every week we usually on tuesday but this week because the nba talk in the james harden trade stuff possibilities and all that We move steve palo alto and thanks to him to thursday. We had him on earlier and you can catch that on sports. Seven ninety dot com among other things on our blog is a in. F- let me preface by understanding when we asked this question it's not we think laremy tonsils good. He's outstanding one of the best left tackle league athletic great feet all those things that you need in aleph tack. Obviously you need more upfront. One guy because i can take my best defensive player and move them around and keep him away from your best offensive lineman. If that's the case but larry thompson was really good but the question. Well we asked. Steve paolantonio steve palazzolo senior analyst. Pro football focus about the situation in the value of that position and about laremy tunsil. No absolutely not i mean. There's there's just no way it has nothing to do with tunsil as a player. I mean joe. Thomas is the best tackle of this generation. If you if. I knew i was getting joe thomas. I wouldn't do it again. I for two first rounders. You're talking about what they had to give up. Correct first round the disconnect. I think for people in football versus say basketball and baseball in basketball stars at any position are stars and baseball stars at any position or stars whether you've got a right field or a third baseman or catcher a star can add value like a star if you get a star left tackle. He's to not impact your team the way star anymore. Believe it or not. I'm more valuable. Position can do it Obviously quarterback receiver like if you if you have a star receiver. Who's going to touch the ball and take place. Have a bigger impact or quarterback So i think in the nfl when you get a very good player laremy tunsil but you give up to first rounders get him. He has to have the value to players to be worth it and a tackle. It's just almost impossible to do so for a team. That's lacking depth. That you know there there were probably other options there. Some all that said when they went from julian davenport salami tunsil. That was a huge part of the offensive line. Going from one of the worse to at least middle of the pack so it certainly helped the team. But i wouldn't make that move again because it's so difficult for one player to achieve the value to the question that was asked was obviously. Would you do the trade over again for two first round picks never how many people would do drive seven ninety. That would do the training. He's right because you talk about positional value value like another sports like when the when the rockets made the hardened trade you said yes you do that trade all day long you give up all those i mean because it's just that guy has more impact on your team right. Any left tackle has impact but one of seven with him when we break down the analytics part of it. The tackle doesn't have as much impact as a five guys as as well either other positions or that he used to. Yeah at least the value. We don't even now even when you take the mccaffrey's and the the guys you're taking the first round. Listen if you ask the dallas cowboys. Would you take zeke elliott over again with third pick. Dr absolutely not say should yeah there. There's no way jerry pricey yes because he wants validate that they made the right pick. Yeah and i'm not saying. I'm using him as an example as good as mccaffrey is and he is really good he may. I don't think carolina mccaffrey taken. What pick do. We remember what we're sixth. Pick your top ten for sure. I can't remember fears tops. Like between six and ten. Maybe he goes between six. Okay so you ask yourself now. Because i look at mccaffrey as a us. The eighth okay. Mccaffrey was a slot receiver. I think detach one hundred ball to me. Like he's different than just a true running. Then zeke agreed. He's he's the outlier of the running. Back like yeah. I would do that. Because i do in a heart but greed because i believe him when he's hurt this. Here's why though i don't look at mccaffrey has just running. Yeah because he does both. So if i came to you right now and your mic coordinator. Now's your head coach. I said move him to slot. He would easily the league in privacy even yards and receptions after the key and be a pro bowl. Yeah i believe that right and if you said we're never running into the slot. He's just going to be true running back from the back he'd go at two thousand right now as good as derrick. Henry is you. Think arab zeke elliott. You think i can go zeke to play the slot and never play running back. That he's a full time slot successful. I don't either. He's a free debts at bright. So there's the difference in we're talking about is tons of freakish. The problem is mccaffrey's gonna touch twenty five times time game. Maybe more if you're smart yeah tonsil is going to block your guy and to take. Say your premium pass rush. If i'm cleveland like last week and myles garrett how many times do you think i'd put him over tunsil smart as good as myles garrett white i don't wanna i don't wanna stalemate yeah you take great and pants and listen if you win seventy five percent of the time in pass protection against myles garrett. It seems like a win. But that's twenty five percent chance of your quarterback may get sacked right there in the run game get pushed in the backfield so that position but yet tunsil could dominate ninety eight percent of the time and if the rest of the past protections will run. Game is not doing their thing. Guess what happens. No matter right minimal success. I should say so. And that's where it comes into the value of tunsil really good player when we didn't have offensive line bitched about getting one of those guys. Well you need that. The cowboys have proven when they had three or four of them. They're all healthy and all plan dominant. Right right raiders. Same way i mean. There's no question colts hell. That's reading philip. Rivers can actually survive because they can take away and let him set his feet most of the time right. And so that's why you went and got filters if you had an average offensive line you wouldn't have even thought about going in. Philip rivers asks the chargers his last season there when they couldn't protect him. The colts went even as much as frank loved him. You wouldn't gone out and got philip rivers if you had a lower third offensive line. It would've been it. Would've been deadly to him right. Same result of steady had better put back in the lineup. So with this. And that's the reason why the value of the tackle or that one superstar. Dude that steve thomma to first rounders. Let's say that first rounder would have been ridley. Just let's say that it'd been ridley and the other one would have been. Gimme gimme a. Who's the josh allen though. Not the quarterback the kentucky kentucky pass rush. Yeah just give me the. I just brought him thought my good play rather have that. Yeah all day. Yeah right and then especially when you go back and look at it now. I know he's older. But dwayne brown good left tackle. You should should've just and we'll be till the day. He walks off the field. You should have just good. Should have just fixed that relationship by giving the money and you'd be paying him way less than you're paying tunsil right right. Oh yeah and that's the other part of it when you made a deal you rabbinate highly howard right when you made the deal. You forced yourself into making him. The highest paid tackle in the league. Well tell ronnie stanley got a little bit more yearly average from baltimore and then he gets hurt but then for people that are just tuned in. This isn't all laremy tunsil. We don't think he's good. Laremy tunsil fabulous. It's is an offensive tackle. Now these days or an offensive lineman for that more worth help can make the argument. If you're a guy like tom brady or people who love the interior the line. Can you make the argument that hell if you're gonna draft left tackle draft miss. Are we ever going to draft a center with the seventh pick of the draft. Haven't what's the time by. Reese i mean we have yes first rounders. I'm talking about. Let's say you got a guy who's good at at his position is clinton nelson but rare. You know what i'm saying. You usually say well people will just keep pushing back. oh. I got him with the seventeenth. Pick right right. I mean if you have a receiver at five or the best center in the planet and a quarterback whose appear pocket passer who think you're taking the receive all day even if you're center position is often or what you'll do is you'll train down. Get an extra first round pick so you get the center at sixteen and the receiver at twenty one or whatever it is right so my point is even as good as that guy could be talking about. Say he's the next. Mike webster or dwight stevenson type of player. Guess what you're not going to do. You'll do everything you can't say. I need that position but you know what the second center in the draft. It's at fifteen or is really good. Yeah and i also get steven ridley or i get rugs or i get one of the you know what i'm saying. One of those guys. Josh allen is a pass rusher or the then you say okay. I'd rather do that right. So that's it so tunsil great player but the question is who's worth two first round picks at that position now considering the right tackle has his jet just as much responsibility accountability and quite frankly importance as the left. Tackle is worth two first round picks in today's nfl is an elite wide receiver. And you know who that is d andre. The best of the best of the best right the guy who every week you lineup. Well now if we re-did the draft guests who that is that's decay metcalf. That's who that is sports. Talk seven ninety. It is our number four. And back to the sean salisbury show. Aren't we talked. With steve palo solo as well about building a team and in this day and age. How you build a. Where's the level of importance position wise. And here's what steve. Some pro football focus told us a little earlier but both tackles are of equal value. But yeah the left tackle themselves you know i. I don't think it's like have the quarterback get the left tackle and then go from there You know get the quarterback yet playmakers get as many claim acres as you possibly can and along the way. Make sure that your offensive line. Just isn't a disaster. That's how i would look offensive team building. Yeah so i like to look the offensive line as a unit and taxes are a perfect example. And i mentioned this on our podcast all the time. If you have a disastrous offensive line you wanna creep back toward average you know if you have a in there as long as you have a middle tier offensive line. You should be able to create offense so that makes it difficult to completely overvalued the left tackle. I mean. I think just talking about the most valuable players right now. Today's nfl quarterbacks in a different stratosphere but receivers in corners if you know if if you know you've get production out of them then those are the most valuable players and then the left tackle. It's you know it's nice if the left tackle is replacing a guy that's well below average but you just need middle class type of players which are tough to find in today's or valuable in today's nfl. Like an average guard or an average sector. Those guys are valuables as nfl. And you need the starting five to be good as a unit not just one and the other part is that the left tackle is not actually more valuable than the right tackle. The right tackles gotta you gotta block. Jj watt or has the bloch von miller and khalil mack. And you know you're blind side when you look into the left shawn when you're last what sides though the one protected by the tax he's exactly right and you know it's interesting when he said those guys like a back like a good solid guard. That's not a superstar tough to find. Why is because we devalued the whole middle class a football because we just pay. We just assume that anna i was. I was lucky to be with two coaches growing up. I mean in my nfl career that valued veterans now. This was long before all the salary cap harshness and all that in chuck knox and jerry burns both of those guys. I'm telling you now. I i watched it. We had a running back. There was draft in the second or third round owen gill for mild good player in college. That caught him. Chuck's kept the eric lane. Veteran kept veterans that they trust rundown especially in and that was just a well. they didn't care. And we all those guys always would keep the vet. If the rookie in the veteran were close and the rookie showed that well three years from now he might be good. Those dudes would keep the veteran that they assured that day was gonna play better football and those guys were never the guys that were your stars. They were the guys that were your come in and play eight snaps back. Run down six seven eight. Ten plays a special teams when you need it. A fourth and one play the be the motion. You know what i'm saying. Yeah the backup linebacker. There will come in on nickel or you need a day. The middle linebacker was hurt for two series. That guy had to come to make plays making it about a half a million bucks here which was a lot back then or six hundred grand and then we kind of eliminated that class and we've tried to have the have in the have nots in the nfl now but every now and again. You're still going to get that coach. I gotta have the guy. Who's mr versatility on can play three linebacker positions and every time. There's a ball punted that fools down there making a play. There was a time when we semi tried to eliminate that whole thing. And so steve's right having those guys are so while we talk about be. Invaluable are invaluable two football teams. And i'll tell you when it's nut. Cut time those guys that have been there done. That pretty impressed have did art stars we we. We are so programmed to go youth stars about stars in youth role about analytics and out of the human element right. There's no question. There's zero zero question about that yet. That leader who the locker room loves to the players if you now there's a lot of times you go to the players that the players had. I'm not talking about about themselves but if you went to a locker room and the front office went to locker room and say hey you know what. What do you guys think about this player compared to this player. I'm just telling you that if the players may decisions there'd be a lot more. I'm talking about by based on what they felt. The player meant to the team. There'd be a lot more of those guys that stay on rosters as opposed to twenty three year old. Who you think three years down. The road is going to be a pretty good player. Which i know you gotta have because the salary structure and all that but most guys would say you can't get rid of him. There's a ton of those guys that they run out of the building that aren't superstars. We're not talking about the media everyday. They're like ooh we like that guy right. It just happens and the worst thing you can do as a as a people that are into foot sports like we are in any sport is go back in and we do this all the time not us but you see it in newspapers and on hot take shows or anything. Go back and redraft that you wanna be miserable do that. Yes not just here incident. Go back and say if you had to do it over again. Five years ago in the draft and go look at all the different cities that revisionist history. Well here is free the work. Here's the here's the best one in here. Houston if you could go back. They traded up to get the shawn watson. A couple of picks before that the chiefs traded up to get patrick mahomes. Yep you would go back and you would trade up to take patrick mahomes. You think they're not even buyers want to go back and that that was the worst experience cargo. You're like i don't want his that one. Is michael jordan portland trailblazers sambo. Yeah you'll want it you wanna yeah unfortunately for chicago. Chicago's fortunate in that. One and unfortunate and the other one and maybe trubisky goes and revitalizes career somewhere else but if you go back and look at chicago bears fans will be. They'll throw up in their mouth via saying who can can either of those guys and not even at that. Pick traded training to take themselves. You could actually traded down whereas mahomes tenth tenth and watson was twelve. Think about this for a second. Now i want you to think for a second about mahomes and watson and where they would fit now in this draft. One that you're exactly right. You think about that or bullied different years boarding the first pick of the draft more than likely depending unless of course the you know the the the now flecked borough and watson came out at the same time. You'd have the argument at least if mahomes doing now what you know. Then we wouldn't even in any of those players came out. Get his amazing that both those guys right to go and ten and twelve are usually project first rounders. I'll see in a year or two. You start to outside the year. Yeah well fortunately. At alex smith a long time. But those are what i say project now. What's the project you play your second year. Normally you pick a guy with the twelve sky. Thinking i got a veteran. I'll see in a year or two. Maybe if the veteran isn't very good or we'll get you some playing time. Now it's a it's like like love situation in the twenties right or whenever it was thirty. Whatever it was that he was picked late in the first round. But do you think about it. If you go back and revisit it will it will. You'll have an ulcer if you're a hardcore fan because you think oh my gosh we could actually for the bears traded a number nine got mahomes and another first round pick now you just use them as an example happens to a lot of teams you start to think about dear lord because if you do that if you wanna really you send yourself to the psycho ward or you wanna lay on. Somebody's couch and talk to a psychologist conventions. Go back and look at drafts like that and say. Imagine the bears defense with this guy and remember who coached him in kansas city. Yeah matt nagy called this place but before he took the job before the thing about this nagy had jesuit one year i think pat with and that's what god wasn't. He was no one here with alex smith. Alex smith but alex smith had a pro bowl year. Mahomes i believe was the backup that you then three for for nagy. I believe in chicago so but he had him on the roster so think about just kind of go through that own. my gosh. You could have literally if you're the bears traded down Drafted patrick mahomes with the ninth. Pick and got another first round pick. Yeah knowing what you beheld knowing what you know now you to train down to got two first round picks. I asked you the question earlier because it saw the posed on. Tv was who's in the bare spot. The bears are the jets. And it's i think it's pretty obvious. Just because one franchise so bad but the the quarterback coming in and the bears don't and it's they're just at that mid level and who knows who they're going to be about this. The bears rosters ten times. Better than the jets. It's debatable for this one reason. Look what quarterback does when. He's that guy. If trevor lawrence is borough mahomes if he's guy then you'd say that the jets are in in better position yet you look at the chicago bears roster and you say here's what it is. The jets need all of players including the quarterback s. The bears needed a couple playmakers and a quarterback. Yes players right at least defensively. They're gonna keep you in games. Their offense blows where they're gonna keep you in games. So who's in better. Do you want that valuable quarterback that franchise changer. But you're not sure how the rest of the roster is going to be or. Do you want that good quarterback but we or would you like to be the bears and say we got it. Pretty good ross dolls. We needed one dude. See one team needs really one guy. Chicago bears have a great quarterback which they never seemed to be able to draft that. Have you ever noticed. It's my boy. Mcmahon it's erik kramer. It's nick foles. it's mitch trubisky. The bear since i guess a had the guy where you say well. That's our next year. Twelve years of quarterback dare you disrespect the sex can get jay cutler so all those guys they think they do. But i've done were like we have or can't see where you actually do have them. They thought trubisky they thought grow. They think these they haven't got him imagined with that defense. How good they be with. Trevor lawrence and the bears are really one guy away from being a super bowl time guy take that position away and like fourteen. Their fourteen guys away from being fourteen guys away. That's exactly the texans. Were in that same position where it looked like they had the at least playoff roster but couldn't have the quarterback and had a rotating cast for four or five years. And start paying terrible quarterbacks way too much money so is it the chicken or the egg right the quarterback and then whoever else or is it the roster and give me a good quarterback i. I'm going to take the great one and take the great at this at that position. No question about it. Sports talk seven ninety hour number three.

They have new england and romeo cornell discussed. This was on wednesday morning. I believe guys about cam newton. We've a running team that and it's it's no longer do we say we'll do. They have nick chubb and kareem hunt or derrick. Henry just can they do. They have warm bodies that can run the football because right now and cam's not just a warm body and they can run it when they josh. Mcdaniels is a good play designer. So romeo cornell. Who's pretty familiar with the new england patriots background but also a you got to do a lot to defend cam newton. Here's what he said about defending cam. Because josh has got him working in and out throwing the ball quite frankly this is the rpo guy will get on the edge and can play that downhill power run game. Here's what romeo said on defending cam newton. Well anytime you know. You have a running quarterback who can run as an efficient at running That means you gotta put another guy down in the box to handle it. You know And so in doing that. Sometimes that opens up the passing game for you It opens up the play. Action game Because you've gotta have an another guy down because if you don't have the down there then he can run and he'll gain yards basically what is saying. He just gave their game plan this week. They did that. They how they're gonna they're gonna stick an eight which they should have been doing a lot this year now unfortunately for for them. When you play in guys like mahomes and lamar jackson and tannahill those guys are all pretty good at throwing a football. Now cam can be streaky. But when he's going good hell he. He's just. He's like that hitter that for a month. You're like whoa. This guy's phenomenal. And every part of the game is really a triple option. Because he can kill you. When he's going good from the pocket he can throw on the run and then he can run and he's about six foot six about two fifty five. Don't kid it. Ain't to twenty at hand derrick henry about the same size he's bigger but newton's it's a big. It's a low that you gotta deal with. He punishes the linebackers. Sliding when he when he's coming downhill. Now you want to protect him and keep him on the field. If you're new england but he gave you the thing so if you're gonna you can't play too high because they will run the ball so when you bring a safety down in single what happens is your essence plan outside. You know you got your corners outside and you're playing you can still play zone by bringing an eighth man down. It's just that that safety has got to be in the box and be able to run and get underneath the flat route and the out cuts. He's got curly flat. Like in what. We call three sky. Okay where he runs. He's hanging around the box but if you play action he's got at least respect to run and he's not going to get underneath the flat so you can pound the outside lanes because of off coverage or even if you press and play zone you can do that too and bail at the snap of the ball. But he's are basically told you so. If your check in more so josh mcdaniels this week you know that they're gonna spend a lotta time single high safety. So josh should be designing plays play action if you're gonna play it and instead of even though you can have great success running you can't abandon it. You may actually see them. Work the outside lanes a little bit more and throw the football or try to get up some seams with single high safety that all verticals really becomes a problem for safety's to defend. And especially if you do it off. Quick play action or rpo. It's going to become a problem because their first priority. This week stop. The run is to stop the quarterback run as well. But if you're josh mcdaniels you can't abandon it because even if they stop you for four five six series we saw this last night at the patriots are going to run the think that there's no doubt i mean why wouldn't you matter of fact they would land out of this throwing the ball about twenty to twenty four times. I would think you more right. I mean talk about page running the ball. The ball thrown to twenty thirty five thirty five times. Run the ball twenty times himself. He very well may fifteen carries eighty yards. There's no doubt and if you get too nosy. Be careful that big play this week because at a play action. You get too nosy and troubled good enough to defend. Both they've got hit the big play right the first radically especially his first his rookie season. I went to the game when he came down here and he beat kubiak. And the texans like i mean it was not supposed to be a game you lost and he came out there and he just he tore them apart. Throwing the football he went started hot four games. He was playing like he's started to play well again the last two weeks. The question is who we get day. If you're a new england you're one get against the texans matter of fact cam if you if you thought. The texans shouldn't be the team that takes you out of defensively being pretty good right. Yeah they they just shouldn't now new england's obviously a little limited roster wise with their team but bella check is still pretty good at coaching. Josh mcdaniels john. Josh mcdaniels is actually coming into the building that he may be the head coach for so semi audition for him to see what you're going to see what this and you got a better quarterback here than you do in new england right now so he does some real estate. Investing down here young goes and scattered some real estate. I would imagine the already has been hitting zillow hidden or home snap exactly. I don't think there's any question so you're going to get a lotta what maybe you're very well. Maybe you're next head. Football coach could be honestly. I bet she gets interviewed. Even if he's not the guy doing the iron bej do believe what jamie roots said that. Easter bees not the personnel guy. I do not by jamie. Senator not buying anything right now. The tells me he's not until they proved me. He's not by hiring the jam because that could just very simply be. Let's get people off our ass right now and then turn around with jackson. I'd say he's fulfilled. We went the interview. Korn ferry likes him to de until i do and i'm not saying james liar. And maybe that's their approach at all and should take a step a little while and speaking out in public. I just until it's proven this four franchise not him but the franchise has done enough for me to question my face and telling me it's raining or it's actual rain a lot of that. I don't think that's going to change. And and i would imagine you have a big time right to think that there's no doubt about it so we'll see but i know this. This is a stay hot game. If you're a quarterback in running game on the texans next got better have some ego involved. But josh mcdaniels will be here. Good play designer. The question is how you gonna stop it and romeo told you how they intend to stop cam. Newton take somebody out of the box and then play action and throwing the ball becomes the question. Is this week. Do you trust your past defensively. Run defense more lesser of two evils. I guess right now right. It's the only way. Yeah you don't trust either there you go and we'll see and then it comes to the point where you say. Hey offense lease or fast to.

Right now james harden more than klay thompson injury. Yeah because it could change the landscape at the eastern conference right could and the western conference quite frankly he gets out of the west goes to brooklyn if it did happen which i still going to sit here and say no. Because they don't have anything you want. Are they the favorite. Yeah over the bucks. Who by the way lost What's his face last night. Lonzo bohdan dogs. Let's let's let's got traded since moved right to new orleans right so you said yeah okay. Sorry i didn't hear my it cut out. So he's in. He's in new orleans they got a oklahoma city's got switching to them in the west. They've got like four hundred via playoff ryan this past year. That won't make this next year right. Twenty first round picks over the next six years new orleans and city. It's going to be two teams. Drafting can't should be good though. No doubt no doubt 'cause they will they get the belco as well to to build off. Right in in zion. But yeah so we go around the league so we we know shooter is now it out bledsoe's in his place we're waiting on harden al horford gone covington's out. I mean all the the the under for now. There's no way last today. Which i can't believe darryl was able to move that deal for just the first six background track such a good five years ago. Didn't it yeah. He was twenty eight years older than a great deal when he's thirty four. Whenever i mean people were questioning going into last year when the sixers did it but then after the year he had there. You're just like man. This is contrary bad bad guy. We obviously know chris. Paul's moved or waiting on the west. Westbrook thompson hurt chris. Paul moved or waiting on the westbrook and hardened situations so yeah. I would say that it's hard and thompson right now. I have one other third one. How do the lakers respond with such short notice in an aging veteran has been so good to we question it at all that they're going to be tired at all. The games eventually have to catch a. He's played like four extra seasons in the policies. He's not the same player he wants was right. He's a different so it doesn't it. Doesn't this quick restart for them. I'm i've tested affect the western conference. I said bunch early in the season. They're just kind of close to the regular season. They don't care they don't care in the past when he was in cleveland like and care so because the fact is they are still going to go into the years the favor of the west and they're still gonna make the playoffs it's all. He changes his getting through. The west is more difficult than it was for him in the east but as long as he's he's right going to the playoffs. That'd be the favorite to win. So there is a sidebar. Cross-legged some of those veteran players and how they're used is this for teams. That have played a lot that are constantly in the playoffs group of people. It's gotta take its toll you would right. Yeah and then the other side. We're talking about golden state. Is there a bunch of guys who fresh legged. not to mention klay thompson to figure out if he's healthy but the urgency to wanna get back out and play right they draft weisman. See if that helps now we got to find out about. Clay harden is definitely. I'm with you one hundred percent. That's gotta be the we just kinda stand here dumbfounded for trying to figure out what's going on. When do you think we're going to get by the okay. He ain't going anywhere hump when they gets cam trae so we got ten days. I think things going that honestly. I think thanksgiving weekend the thanksgiving weekend maybe so between december. I really wouldn't free when we're officially in free agency. It they don't sign people that mid level exception than i think the the odds ramp up that he's gone right if they use the mid level for legit player. If you see a mid level guy like in the first day yes i stand. Yeah like. they're they're in the mindset of. We're adding to this team that we have disrupted here instead of taking it apart. Yeah right and they've taken one thing apart obviously with with coaching. The core in this is maybe once you know he wants because you look at the team run at you slide. Pj if you get even if it surge a by keeps on surge balk out there. Because i think that that's realistic. Possibility surge can technically be. Your center still got lead. He's jay plays your four. He's played the five so he can play the four. And then you're basically running g and daniel. Hi i mean. Because i think right now daniel house days clearly you run daniel house. There's three run. James the to and russell one and then you got because there was really you had. You're almost got to the point where there's too many wings if you go back to more traditional looks so covington didn't have been he's he's a good wing player but honestly you get the same stuff out of daniel house cheaper and depending on what night. It is same guy. As far as what they're asked right you would think so proven it. Most of the Still need more out of him. But you're one hundred percent correct with that too with the rockets situation. So we all agree that we're going to have a pretty good idea. The direction this franchise by the time. Our leftovers are done fair enough beyond thanksgiving. When are left of meaning. Saturday morning of next week thanksgiving whenever by the time we get through that weekend and next week we should have pretty good idea where the franchises and ahead is where they're headed and what they're yeah right and then the fixing of well. Why do you want to stay now. Starts to begin right. Oh james stan. What about pr. Lucky as well that you know they can deal with this without having media present because i would assume everything's because it could be via zoom again. It's easier to deal with media settings like the hoopla would have been if when camp starts if meals allowed in and maybe they will. Yeah i mean with him there. It would be a bleep show. Yeah and so it it becomes. It becomes easier to dodge questions. When you're doing it via zoom and i would assume still that everything's going to be via zoom. Isn't it weird to that here. We got another former. Mvp and minimal chatter even around. The nba russ was the big chatter. I'm talking about i. Yeah but now with the hardened trade skews me or lack thereof hiccups me looming. it's like russ's just kind of it's kind of an afterthought right days isn't it isn't it. Yeah and it's so my point is we've died. We died off right of the thought that it's a it's not necessarily about them not wanting to play together. It's more about james. Just wanting out. Yes i would say that it's the latter. I think it is too. I think i would say it's rust. Got wind of james running out and it wasn't because of russ because he decided he wanted out and then it became. I guess they don't wanna play together. Put it this way if you russ knew before we did about james yes. Yeah your friends always before you do. You know what i mean before you. There's we all have something we share with our close friend. That's like that that it's like brain. That is locked down that there is an i. I would lean more towards what you're saying. That russ had idea instead of saying. I want out had idea that james wanted out any be here through this without the gotta go somewhere else. I i believe you're probably more right about that. That he knew more than the rest of us win. James talked about it. What did russ didn't just find out like we did. How's that i would agree with you. One hundred percent right. We'll come back and do it again. Friday john clayton will join us as well as ice cold takes and we'll get some predictions and picks for the weekend specs. Pick of the week to roll and hopefully we'll have more college games because well covance like stopping down of the is utah ever gonna play a game this year. They're supposed to play. Usc we'll find out if that happens this week too so all over the country cova defect in college football. We'll discuss that tomorrow up next.

NFL Show I'm Chris Vernon joining me as he does every Wednesday is Boring Shar Bay warrant what is up Chris? All right. We got a ton of stuff to get to this week. Good stuff too. I'm excited for today Let's start with. I hate to start with this war in. My Beloved Dallas Cowboys. We talked about last week on the show. Maybe we're getting you know not enough credit from the lines makers. Going, into the Arizona game and it turns out they got too much credit from the lines bakers going into their Arizona gave and that's not that's not the big story coming out of Dallas the big story was Jane Slater who does a tremendous job covering the cowboys for the NFL network went on said outlet yesterday and said that in conversation she has had with Dallas cowboys, players they. Have said that they the coaches don't teach. They don't adjust on the fly and they just aren't good at their jobs Now, who knows who is saying this? Who knows if it is the unanimous opinion of the Dallas Cowboys but it is certainly not the kind of conversation you want out there surrounding a football team football by the way is unbelievably in first place in their dreadful division. But. What did you make of that report Is it a worthwhile report in in your mind and when I say worthwhile not being somebody said it are they right? We cannot know if they don't teach but in terms of the charge that they do not adjust on the fly and they just aren't good at their jobs, what do you make of anonymous cowboys saying that to the NFL network? While I mean certainly interesting. You have to go back to what Mike McCarthy was like back in Green Bay. The last couple of years before he was let go and it was he carrying that team or resign Rogers carrying team. Why was Aaron Rodgers performing the way that he was because I am Completely convicted of the notion that quarterbacks are so completely an early tied to their play caller and you know rodgers'. Performance definitely was dropping office because Rogers can't play football anymore can throw the ball down the field can't read defenses all that failing him or was it because Mike McCarthy was in helping maximize Aaron, Rodgers talent and getting the most out of that offense so that those questions still linger and then they play into what's going on here in Dallas. Now Dallas is. Kind of like the Eagles I mean I tweeted about it during the game Monday night you could take both of their offensive lines that were playing at how you know in the second half of their games. This past week week six, take both of their offense of lines combine them together, and there's a total of two starters that were forecast to start out of ten our eight. So these lines have been decimated with injuries. The defenses have had injuries, I mean the eagles can't. Try Out any wide receivers tight ends knowledge everybody is down for them. the quarterback for Dallas is down. So there's a lot of things that are beyond the coaches control that these teams have just been ravaged by injuries. So you have to take that into consideration as well but. When players are saying that the coaches are not making adjustments that is something that appears to be potentially the case whether or not they can coach or do their jobs at all I. I can't. I can't really pine on that round. They haven't been doing a good job. Let's say you can say that you could coach, but you're actually not doing a good job of coaching. So I I think that's maybe the case not that they just can't coach. They don't know what they're doing it all on I think that. Maybe some of the schemes in that they're using our little bit too complex and could be dialed back to get the guys playing with a little bit more energy. Get the guys playing a little bit more instinctively reactionary is terms of the defense. We've seen other people come out people that are far more intelligent than I am who've studied the tape and have. The opinion that it's both a execution slash effort issue as much as it is a schematic issue. So I don't know which one is more weighted there, but I think both are issues. So in in general, I think it's an issue about it is an issue about coaching in general and I don't know what the ultimate answer is, but I can tell you this. is going to be hard to get the final answer here Chris this season with the that are currently rostered. disheartened. Okay. All right. I get it and I have I have made my excuses about the offensive line. I mean it is. It is such a tremendous shame when you're two three years removed from you know Travis Frederick and Zack Martin Lyle leads a tyrod. Smith. I. Mean this was as good. Offensive Line is there wasn't the world and now two years later I don't even know any of the people that are in there that being said. You know it is. It is the coach's job to get to maximize what you do have, and there are players that I watch that I sit there and say, why is that guy? Not Awesome anymore why? Why am I watching? What happened to Jalen Smith? What happened I get advance has just came back. What happened the demarcus lawrence what the F.. Ezekiel Elliott like what what is going on? He has never been a guy that is. Careful with the ball and he puts it on the deck all the time now Michael Gallup just dropping a wide open touchdown in the end zone. I. Mean just weird stuff where it's like it's like what you do have even the good players you do have aren't performing like good players and that's what's crazy to me like what happened to these guys and now you hear that and you kind of put it together and it's it's hard not to think Jesus please you know I went through ten years of bitching about Jason Garrett every frigate week and this is what I get. I know I definitely hear you look if you look at a team like the Philadelphia. Eagles, right I and and I know you don't like the eagles, but they're they're a team in your division and INA similar situation align line ravaged with injuries. The one good thing that you guys have going for you this is what I didn't really understand like this just talk game plan here. Let's just talk. Let's just talk game plan here with the way that you guys started that game you have any. Dalton at quarterback. Now I know he's quote unquote your backup and I know he's quote unquote worse than back and those two things are both accurate. He is worse than she is your backup but you know what? He isn't he he isn't worse than most of the other backups in the NFL and in fact, he's been a starting quarterback in the NFL for years and years and a lot of teams would love to have him as their backup. In case, their quarterback goes out with an injury and. You are designing an offensive game plan. that. You still have all your receivers right? Like I know you don't have your Blake Jar when you're number one tight end but you have every single receiver they're and they're healthy and they're playing fine right now. Design, a game plan to maximize the skill set that you have. Instead their entire game plan was schemed around. Zeke, Elliott at one point I believe they had run twenty three offensive plays in the game and Zeke. was the focus of over half of those plays between his runs and his targets He had two fumbles. A completely inefficient way to game plan in offense with a quarterback like any Dalton who is still capable of throwing the ball down the field design a game plan that's going to let him throw the ball on some early down get into rhythm get comfortable the Arizona Cardinals Secondary. We'll see when they go up against the Seahawks, but I am not somebody who is Homa God Arizona cardinals secretary we gotTA. Run the ball lot with Zeke because I'm so scared of these guys like they are definitely beatable. They've played very easy schedule of opposing passing offenses year today and they could have designed a better game plan and they did not and they got into a massive hole and then that's all she wrote and you're right some of these guys were not stepping up Some of these guys were not performing it. Did. Not, look like the focus was there and that is the coach's job, right? Like the coach's job is to give these guys the mindset I mean how? Texas football high, school football I is a hotbed you of high school coaches all the time coaching up rosters of players that aren't necessarily as talented as others but stepping up onto a big stages Monday night football, a national televised game I don't care. If, we don't have all of our best players here. Guys are here have to do a great job of executing this game plan. All the world is watching you guys on this massive stage perform and they did not live up to those expectations. It was like they didn't care to be their their head wasn't in the game, and that is the coach's job to get ready and you usually get the okay. Down let's go win it for let's prove that we're going to be okay without him and you usually get in many cases. Some kind of a grand slam effort when you're down a guy because they try to rally around, they know they need to do as a collective and instead they were just an absolute disgrace. Let's move on I'm tired of talking about them I never want to talk about. Oh, and six against the spread by the way. Six Warid Yeah it's IT'S Right this will be righted at some point. The books are not GonNa Continue to let Dallas but look this week. Already we've got the Dallas cowboys they opened as a two and a half point favorite in Washington and now the line has been bet down to a pick em. I'm sure it has. You, bet, on the cowboys you've lost. Your Astros me. All right. Let's get to the video that's making the rounds, which is the pro football talk guys Mike Florio and Chris. Simms debating. Analytics. Departments in NFL. Front. Offices. And in addition to that, this is all based around the Romeo Coronel decision that took place over the weekend and the Texans Titans game. So for those that did not see it at the end of the game, the titans went up by seven points they scored the Texans scored a late touchdown. Romeo Cornell decides to go for to this would be the dagger play that would put them up nine. Then make the titans in a position where they would have to score twice in effect ending the game instead. They missed that two point conversion and that leads to the discuss of why didn't they just kick the extra point going up eight because if they would have been up eight, then it would not have enabled the titans to come down the field score, take the game to overtime, and then win the game in overtime, and so this decision then led to a broader discussion about analytics, its place in the NFL and whether or not somebody like Romeo. Cornell would have made that decision if it weren't for the advent of analytics departments in the NFL. So first, let's just go through game theory in your mind because this something that people are split on. You go up by seven with what was it a minute left. Do you think that the team should kick the extra point or should the team go to they're on a general basis? Look. All I can say is that this is an even like that decision is so far removed from these guys were actually talking about and I think this decision has been like probably at this point on on Wednesday halfway through the week a little over discussed. So what what I'll say is that I don't really think that this is all that much analytics intense. Oh this is more game theory type discussion where you're making. The decision that you would rather win the game on that play and that if the other team is able to score a touchdown because that's the whole issue at play here if the titans are able to go back down the field and score touched on because it's relevant if they can't. So forget the fact whether they can or they can't you're assuming that they are able to score that touchdown and you are trying to. See if they're going to be. If you're gonNA, allow them to just kick the extra point or not. By bottom line for me is I would rather win the game. Not Situation Go, for two if the titans go back down the field, they're not gonna go to these guys are talking about all we'll. Everything will flip on its head when the team is trailing is going to go to in that spot. Look the reason that you're gonna go for to yourselves the Texans would go to is because they're scared of the two point play that the other team has and they're Henry's probably going to be able to score that two point play. So they want to just be able to win the game and that's the reason that they did it but this isn't Even like it's kind of irrelevant what I think in that situation, the more interesting perspective here is the other stuff that these guys were saying during the conversation. But what do you think what did did you were you upset with their decision to try to go for to there? I think that it is I think and this is true of many different sports and I also think this is true of the whole football guy analytics guy discussion that there is. There is room for both sides to be right about this. I don't think it is cut and dry I in that particular situation and it can't just be based upon it can't just be results based I. It was fascinating I was listening to Mike Lombardi and he was talking about the decision and and the reason this is instructive is because Lombardi was in a lot of front offices for many years and so this this gives you a sense of what a guy in a front office thinks like and his sense is if you are up if you go up seven that at that point if I kick the extra point. From that point on I need three things do go wrong in order for me to not win that game I need to give a touchdown be give up a two point conversion and see lose in overtime if I kicked the extra point, I only eighty two things to go wrong for me to not win. And I know that sounds base level but. That is a lot of guys view this. I don't think that that is I. Don't think that's ridiculous. I don't think it's ridiculous. Right for me to say what are we doing here yet we're thinking too much on this kick the frigging extra point go up by eight. You know if they come down, they scored get a two point conversion. So be it we've had both things go wrong hopefully, we're going to get a stop that's what I mean hopefully by defense, go out there and win the game. All I can say is that like let's let's let's shift this to the other stuff that these guys are talking about. But all I can say is that if you have a situation where one I'm trying to say is this stuff has been going on for years with or without an analytics department involved. I highly doubt that some analytics guy was in Romeo, Cornell's head telling him exactly what to do in this. Situation we would ask him I haven't heard any confirmation that he has said while somebody analytics told me that I should be going for to hear coaches for years well, before they even invented analytics departments were what the hell. Let's go to hear what the Hell is just trying to win the game like this has been going on for years. The cool thing about this is that it sparked this massive rant between these two guys on this podcast and that's really the interesting thing that I wanNA start dying. Let me here. Let me hear what you took away from it that either bothered you or you agreed with I'm GonNa Magin you agreed with nothing. Well, okay. So these these guys you're right. I didn't agree with very much here because I don't really know what the hell these guys are even talking about these guys are acting as if the analytics gurus that are on these teams are like hanging out with the owner there the owners best friend they're eaten every lunch with on then they're going out onto the practice field they're telling the they're kind of running the practices almost and the coaches just a robotic. Yes. Man To what the analytics. People are saying and working with these guys and and and being involved in this process myself. I can tell you that that's not what's happening. Yes. There are reports that are delivered to front offices that talk about analytics but here's the thing that I have that I that I really wish was a bigger part of the discussion when it comes to analytics because I always call it the low hanging fruit everybody when they start talking to analysts and football wants to simply talk about fourth-down decisions. Go, or kick those types of things and I always say that's like the most basic level of analytics like this stuff that I'm doing for teams is not. And I I know that there's other guys that are involved in this that might be focusing more on that of right and it is an important thing to help teams figure that out. But that's basic type stuff. That's that influences. The game a high trigger rate in terms of like the results what your decision here is and how much expected points you're adding based upon that decision. But you know what is more influential over the course of the game is what you're doing on first and second down and those decisions, and I can tell you that a lot of the analytics people that are working on teams are completely involved with helping. Outline and that's what it really is. It's outlining strategies that are going to work and these guys here on this podcast are talking about. Well, you know like influencing these one one or two plays, and they're the ones controlling these types of situations. Meanwhile, these same guys are talking. Up What Russell Wilson the Seattle seahawks are doing the right in about it on their website, they're talking about it on their podcast. How great that is they're talking up Josh Allen, and how much he's improved in how well the bills are doing obviously lost a couple of games but a general project, how how great two bills or doing this year? Do you? Know what those teams are doing those two teams are incorporating more analytics into their game planning decision making and processes, and that's why those teams are successful. It's because of analytics it has nothing to do with like this -sarily. Oh well, they look at this team they're getting so much more aggressive on fourth down league-wide that's happening. We already know that but look at. What those teams are doing on first and second down look how much more those teams are passing, look what their strategies are on a week to week basis and how they're changing and evolving. It's because of the analytics that those teams are actually performing to the level that they are. So stopped sitting here, trying to shit on analytics people or in the analytics space. About how we're trying to bully coaches into doing different things when the fact is that most teams are improving because they're incorporating more and more analytics into their daily processes, and that's why these teams have higher thresholds and are performing at a higher rate. So I mean, I'm not sure which I'm sure I'm going to think of some other things to say. All right. Here's what I'll say I've covered intensively at least seven or eight different NBA coaches, and along that way all all manner of front offices including ones that hired you know big time analytic guys and I have seen I have seen fights between coaches and analytics departments. I've seen myself fight with coaches over eight Olympics, and so this happened listen it happened in baseball first, and then it happened in basketball and now it has made its way to football and football was always going to be the most the most difficult right and the most resentful about things number one because it is the most. Team based and I'm not talking about the play calling and the stuff that you're doing. I'm talking about some of the different numbers it doesn't always hash out because so much of it is that I think what what makes it harder in football for there to be football coaches and analytics departments as you say, get on the same page is because of so much noise that there can be within a football game and that if if you're analytic, guys don't understand what is supposed to happen in a said play then they are automatically discounted other examples. So in basketball, right one of the season's. I sat next to take prints who was one of the great defenders part of the two thousand and four championship team for the Detroit Pistons and I sat by him throughout the year and I was always a lineup data guy a. Defensive. Rating. Office Brady got like I was I was deep into it NBA. Wise. Right it sitting with him at someone that sees the game completely different throughout a season and him pointing out who messed up a player. Wyatt play was successful or what else it? It made. Me Realize how little I knew just by looking at the numbers right because and I will also tell you. This war for the first time in my life I'm coaching this year my son didn't have a football coach this year and I said I would do it now it's just flag football, right but I'll give you an example and I have gained a greater respect for coaches than ever before me having to do it because let's just say there was a play on in our last game. And I call out the play and I've got a kid, let's say his name's Hank and I tell Hanke say look they've got Bradley this other plane safety. You have got to drag all the way across the field because the kids a ball hawk and we we are throwing away from him every single time right and were throwing it to sigh up the sideline our best receiver. So. Anyway the play plays out yet my quarterback you. Interrupt I like in this story that you start off by saying like let's say the names Hank and then you're getting very very specific with these other guys. Yes. Yes. So it is. So I don't want to call him out. He's fifth-grader it's not his fault. Okay. But it's a good go hanging and these are fifth grader. So he went to Sigh. Yes. We're going to sign up the sideline. So My quarterback drops back right? He rose out to the right he knows he's throwing aside on the sideline he throws it is. WHO picks it off. Bradley. Now, what the F. is Bradley been doing over there. Well, he's over there because Hank went the opposite direction from where you're supposed to go right and so you could sit there and you could say what the hell are you doing why are you throw at this guy but if i? If you have the understanding that I, what I drew up in that. and. Then the way played out that's when I take the step back and say, all right. This is why football coaches when they go in the meeting room and they are listening to the guy, give out all the numbers and the guy that gives out all the numbers can't explain why play went wrong or why a play went right that Romeo Cornell. Says, Hey, I I know they're telling me I should go for to here. But I really don't want because my right tackle gotten blown up the last five plays and he recognizes that but the numbers say something different. All I'm saying is that once you are in the middle of it i. now have a better awareness of why there is this break and when I say back to the basketball things I have covered coaches that are simpatico with analytics departments and get those report and take those reports to heart and. Then, we'll adjust what they are doing lineup wise data wise substitution wise etc. based upon what those analytics told them. I. Have Seen others that say this is nonsense stance right? Like I mean like you don't. You don't even know you don't even know what our plays are supposed to be. You don't even know what player messes up a play. You Know I'm sitting there coaching these guys I know where the play was supposed to go. I know. What was supposed to happen on this and I know why we fail and your number can tell me whatever your number wants to tell me. But I'm sitting there and I know what they're coached to do and what these guys are doing and this guy up all the time I don't care what his PR is or his office of Defensive Rating and what are lineup statistics are I I know what supposed to happen and what is not happening and Now I'm going to defend them on the the going out to lunch thing Warren, you do the your analytics and your report from afar. There are guys in those front offices that do have lunch with the owner. I will tell you that is true and and they heard that from somebody. On the saying none of that is is is is possible once in a while, I'm not saying that that doesn't happen. I'm not saying that the analytics people don't hold meetings with the owner once a week like I all. Let me go back to your got a couple of points on this I. Go back to your statement about the coaches that say that that. Is Nonsense. I mean just. So people understand out there. Analytics is just the processing of information into into an easy to digest manner so that you can look at look at it. You can analyze more data in easy period of time and make educated decision based upon the data. That's all it is. It's not some sort of A. Magic black bottle. Going let me take a quick twenty second time out all those coaches that said they were not sets. Are No longer coach Oh come you just let me. So. Wording those God? Okay No. We don't. We don't have to discuss the people who just want to make off the cuff decisions. Based on data and just go with their gut right and and and we're also not discussing the fact that coaches can't go with their gut, right like uncertain deci certain plays were guys got injured and you have to substitute or this other team has this lineup out on the football field and so now we're going to make this adjustment off of what we were planning on doing like all of those things come down to what the coach needs to do the co it's his responsibility ultimately, he has to answer to that. But I think my issue and and and it would be instructive if everybody listening was able to go back and hear the podcast and the discussion from Florio and sins on this this notion but they're kind of talking about the fact that Oh my God you know what? If the analytics can you write a formula to show that you're playing the Baltimore? Ravens and they have defensive line with three hundred pounders out there and actually actually yes, you can make adjustments for what do you think that the people in the analytics department are doing you think that people in the analytics department are just like throwing up numbers based on. not even looking at like one team versus the other team we're just looking at you know while in the NFL if you're if you're on first and ten, this is what you should do every time know your game planning for an opponent. You're helping coach figure out what plays that he should be calling based upon who is up for his roster and who is healthy and who he's playing against and what? They're doing and their health, and that's how it. That's why it's a lot of work. I mean, you're not just coming up with league-wide number so that that's not what is happening here and it's just funny to think that to boil it down to It's as black white issue. An analytics are only involved in these high leverage situations. No analytics is involved in everything and it's absolutely true. I will say this. Is absolutely true that analytics are. In, some in some staffs in some departments, more of a well-thought-out more incorporated through the fabric of this team. Now, what the coaches want to do, and ultimately, there may be some people on that coaching staff that are a little bit more reluctant or hesitant to do what some data guy is suggesting that they do in a certain situation and that's why the data guys just the data guy and the coach is the. Coach, and so the day the Guy Helps provide the Co. yes. With the tools and the information to make an educated decision, and then the coach does what he thinks and then ultimately in a good process and this is this should be with any job not just coaching there should be a review of what are we doing did it work? Could it have gone better? Why did we make these decisions? How can we improve all? These, guys are these guys on the radio thing are acting as if like that never happens in down the walk of work line of work and nobody ever has these meetings in these discussions about why they did things. Still this happens in literally every single successful business and enterprise you're analyzing the decisions that you made and could you make them differently next time? To get a better result I mean this is basic and and this is where I would tell you that the best organizations are the ones that do get on the same page they hire analytics departments and there's not this level of resent and smugness from you know the the you know they wanNA frame it as this twenty, five year old one kin from. From, from Harvard or something and he's telling Romeo Cornell? WHO's one hundred years old coach outside like how to coach football right like like they're the ones the coaches that use this to their benefit and realize that the analytics department is working in concert with them and not against them to make this a better team. Those are the ones that will not only survive. They are also the ones that will thrive in the end this what I would say the the moral of the story is you can either get down with this a smarter way to play a smarter way to play call a smarter way to make decisions. Or you will be phased out. We have had it happened all over the NBA in front offices. That's just what's going to happen and with coaching decisions, and that's just what's going to happen the guys that are going to be reluctant and they're going to say f those nerds and I don't care about your numbers and you don't understand football right? Because what happens is the break the break is. You have one side that says you don't understand the numbers and this dude would be so much better at coaching if he just booked the frigging numbers which he throws in the trash and the other side that says, why am I wh- i? Don I don't need these numbers guys don't know anything about basketball. They don't know anything about football. They don't know anything about coaching these teams they don't know. Anything about the personalities of the flow of the game more WHO's getting killed. You know at why something took place it they don't understand the why they're just looking at the numbers not why that number is that number and you get this break. It is old school jocks versus nerds and the nerds win they won in baseball they won in basketball and they will win in football and the football guys. Better get down with it because these are the same discussions that were being that took place years ago in the other sports and we'll. I can. I could tell you look the bottom line is most of the people that are in. This is the last thing I'll say on this so we can move on because There's other things to to talk about this week but what I will say this. The guys that are the talking heads in the media right now especially, ex coaches who are doing this in like talking to some of these other guys in help formulating their opinions on this type of stuff. These are guys who never had analytics department work with them like especially as expansive analytics departments as exists right now, those are coaches that are now talking heads in the media that don't really understand I think what is really happening? On a detailed level behind the scenes. But the end goal here for everybody involved from the owner on down is the owner wants his team to win games and I can assure you that the coach wants to win games and the analytics department wants to win games and everybody is going to be happier at the end of the day when you win a game then that shitty sinking feeling when you lose a game and so there. Is I don't care if the analytic skies share some information that the coach then doesn't take. The says you know thinks spur of the moment? Hey, I, know we discussed about this like earlier this week that we might do this here we might call it but but this is really working. So I'm going to try to keep doing these other types of things off of this and it has success and the end up when you game. You, know what? The analytics people aren't saying. They're not going back to the meeting and a meeting room with the F.. This coach he's so terrible. He did something that worked well in the game, but it wasn't what we told them to do like absolutely not the goal is to win the game. The end goal is to win the game. So if we're making decisions that are helping us win games, then we want to continue to make. As educated decisions, learn from what we did and continue to make those decisions to win games add potential expected value to every single play call where possible and I think at the end of the day, the goal is to win incorporate intelligent decision making throughout the course of the week as you're trying to gain plan and then try to make the best decisions during a game that gives you the best opportunity to win and let the chips fall where they may have the coach make his gut decision where he needs to and we can all go to sleep at night knowing we did everything possible. To put ourselves in the best position to win this game well, and I think it's best summed up where the the reason that ramp like that comes out is because you are hearing from football guys that view analytics and analytics departments as enemies rather than assets right that they are not they're they're not. They're friend they're not on the same page there the guy telling the odor that you're F ing up and they think they think that we're making they think that I'm not GonNa say we because there's a lot of smart people that are doing this. They think that the analytics people are are making. The game more robotic and less interesting when in reality, incorporating more analytics into the game is making it more exciting. It's increasing the output of these offenses. It's unlocking potential and it's putting a more watchable. Interesting Fun product out on the football field that is actually gonNA benefit these guys and their jobs because they're gonNA make more money long-term with a better product out on the field that they're able to cover. So in a roundabout way like using analytics is actually going to help the guys who are slamming their use in the media I wore we'll get right back to it.

Let's move on the bears are five and one Warren and clearly in a great spot at a run at being a playoff team do five and one's make it almost all the time it feels like a five and one team would make it almost all the time and how real are the bears as an NFC contender 'cause I. I would say my perception is that people certainly don't have as high opinion to them as they do the Seattle's Tampa's packers of the world part of that's because of the quarterback is right. It's Nick foles instead of Russell Wilson Tom Brady or Aaron. Rodgers. Where so people are the bears in pole position to make the playoffs that'd be a playoff team and do you think that they are or should be considered on par with other NFC contenders? I don't know that I would first of all they they are on par to make the playoffs they are in position to make the playoffs I think teams that are five and one this year, the percentage might be off slightly, but it's it's between eighty seven and ninety percent I believe somewhere in that neighborhood that a five in team starts five and one would get into the playoffs. Is is just below the ninety percent threshold and above like eighty five percent the bears do of the seven toughest schedule the rest of the way although they haven't played the they've played a fairly difficult scheduled to date i. mean they haven't played like a terrible schedule. It's not like you're playing all these terrible teams from the NFC. East, they've they've only played the giants from the NFC East they've played a number of other teams that are doing well in their division like the colts in the box. So. The but but this is a team that's a very the got things go right for them. They can't afford to beat themselves. They don't have any margin for error. Every single one of their wins has been by seven points or less. This is not a team that blows opponents out that gets big leads gains margin. They're averaging only twenty one points per game themselves. That's. Even with Nick. foles. As the starter the last three weeks. So this is not I mean in those games, they've scored eleven twenty and twenty three points. So this is not a team that's really going to blow the doors off of anybody on a typical week. I guess unless there may be potentially a terrible team, but if you look the rest of the way. They have the seventh toughest schedule going through the rest of the season. It is not going to be easy for them. They play a very difficult Monday night game in la Yes to look at the body clock issue of a team playing in primetime on the West Coast and how those teams perform in the second half of games that adds to the schedule difficulty. For them in this spot I just think it's it's tough schedule. They aren't good position. They have to hold serve the rest of the way to be able to ensure they'll get there but this is definitely above average team I mean this is this is a fine teen I. I would say that they're a good team they're soundly built defensive team but. Whether or not they can compete with offenses that really are dialed in and are going to be able to stretch them. That's going to change on a week to week basis. They did a really good job against the bucks on Thursday home game with the bucks traveling on a short week but. Without healthy wide receiving core but it'll be interesting the rest of the way for those guys. All right. Well, I'm glad you brought up schedule because let's bounce to that. You talked about the bear schedule what they've had and what they have going forward. Let's talk about strength of schedule and the changes. That have happened weeks one through six versus the rest of the season who does it really lighten up for who does it get much more difficult for what is your analysis on the way the schedule plays out from here on out. So one of the interesting things I love discussing the big changes that teams that have had it really easy and then get much harder. The La Rams have played the number one easiest schedule of opposing teams so far this season and they're about to play the number three toughest schedule of opposing teams. The rest of the way they played as we know the entirety of the NFC east and they lost to the only two teams that are outside the NFC east we talked about it on the show with House on Friday about the forty niners in like the rams in that spot on Last week on Sunday night football they lost that game they lost to the bills of the only two. Teams that they played that weren't and the NFC east therefore, no against the NFC east the rest of the way they've got a very tough road me. We just talked about the bears and then they're going to be plying teams including the seahawks twice the Tampa Bay buccaneers and they got games against the Patriots later on the cardinals, a couple of games in the forty niners and other times. So their schedule is very difficult You could say isn't the entirety of the NFC west going to have tough schedule in the future because the off to play each other. So we know the records of these teams I mean nobody is below five hundred. The forty niners are probably better than their three and three record indicates because of all the injuries they've sustained once they get role and they're going to be a winning record team and you've got the cardinals a foreign to the rams of foreign to and the seahawks are undefeated. The answer to that is actually know the answer to that is no not every team in the NFC west is going to have a ridiculously difficult schedule ironically, the team that's the the best did not conference. Right now, from a record perspective and an efficiency perspective is going to play one of the easiest schedules. In fact, the number two easiest schedule, the rest of the way, and why would that be well, it's because they've yet to play all these teams from the NFC east they still have three games against the NFC east games against Washington, the giants, and the Eagles, plus they have the jets so that Seattle that Seattle Seattle and they look they got the second easiest schedule the rest away warned they have got to be the prohibitive favorite in the NFC I would think. They they I in in my opinion they are because I don't think Dow. I. Don't think The bears you're GONNA sustain a five one record packers are probably. Still. In my opinion, the best team in that division, but they've got issues defensively whereas the bears have a little bit of issues offensively the the seahawks are interesting because apart from the bills are like a middling opponent that they're going to play. The rest of the way they're either playing like teams in their own division that are good and we're talking about two games that are good from a record perspective and a good from an efficiency perspective we're talking about two games against every single person every single team in that division right you still got two games against Iran's two games against four, nine, two games against the cardinals. And then you have a game against the bills and the all these teams that are terrible in the NFC East plus the AFC east with the jets. So they they definitely if they can do what they need to do in the division, even if it's just win their home games if you split if you just split Games versus their division that you're at eight wins, and then if you win right those real other four at you, you you you you sweep those games against your up to twelve when but the key the key for them is and this is the key for a lot of teams in both sides of the of the leisure here in both conferences. The number one seed in your conference must be the priority there cannot be on any single week taking your foot off the gas pedal because only one team gets a bye and that race is going to be extremely extremely competitive. This year interesting does it get easier for outside of Seattle were the other teams that if you are fan of those teams, you could at least have hoped that the season's going to get better than it has been so far. Yes. So the Philadelphia Eagles, they're one. Of the teams that move up, they've played teams that on average ranked fourteenth and they're going to go up to teams at on average you're gonNA ranked twentieth in the League so their schedule is going to get a lot easier another schedule that's going to get easier his team like the Cleveland Browns Your Dallas Cowboys gets a little bit easier even though you've played a what an average our average to below average schedule, you can bleep that part out if we don't WanNa talk about that. You're talking about a team like the Texans are going to get easier team like the Vikings you're going to get easier you'll the Texans we talked about those guys having the number one toughest schedule entering the season we forecast that they were going to struggle las. Vegas. Forecast that they were going to struggle. That's why they said their win total only at seven and a half winds But if you look at this team I, mean they they've played a brutal schedule so far this year does it get any easier against the packers this week at angry packers team off of that difficult loss but you look after? Their by which they have a by this Houston Texans do after this packers game there they get the Jaguars to get the Cleveland browns they get the new. England. Patriots they get the Detroit lions enforced four straight weeks plus a game against the Cincinnati Bengals all those teams rank below average inefficiency. At this point in the season, you know the toughest opponents left that they've got are the divisional opponents to give two games against the colts game against the titans. So in general, their schedule does get easier from having to play like the chiefs and the steelers and one game against the titans in the ravens like their schedule was. Ridiculous I it is going to be a much easier for them moving forward but they're still not a great team. They don't have a head coach defense is very problematic. I'm not forecasting the all sudden come back and race to the post season here But their schedule we'll get a little bit easier. Let's not got a couple of these other topics for we get out of here today to Is GonNa get a start in Miami? It was a really cool story to see him get in the game get a monster ovation at the end of the dolphins win on Sunday, and then there was that scene after the. Game where he is over three hundred days removed from his season ending at Alabama and you could see him just sitting in the middle of the field soaking it all in while now a day later on Monday he finds out, he is going to be the starter for the Miami Dolphins they have a bye week this week, and then to is going to start look they've been good compared I think what a lot of people thought they were going to be Fitzpatrick's been good and there a five hundred team and their second in this division. So what do you make about this choice by the dolphins to go ahead and? Put two in their. He'll start against the rams for his first game I don't know. I mean off a massive injury of Aaron Donald the first guy you wanna see, but it's neither here nor there he's getting distorted NFL football game. We're GONNA get to see another rookie, which is always fun. But just this decision as a whole cause fitzpatrick, he's been good for them. Yeah he has. No I mean there's no doubt Fitzpatrick I was posting some numbers on him yesterday on twitter about how great of a backup quarterback he has been. You can't really ask for anything better than what he's delivered in terms of his ability to keep you in games. Win is underdogs, which is certainly what the dolphins have. Ban his ability to cover spreads, which is what we like when if you're betting on these teams but since he relieving Josh Rosen and week six last year, he went twelve and five ats. quarterback for the dolphins at seventy one percent cover rate, which is definitely building your bankroll. If you're betting on them and the on average is team was seven and a half point underdogs in these games and they won seven outright seven out of those games outright including four of his last seven starts. So He's done a great job for this. They ruined the Patriots playoff seeding. Yes. Yeah. Yeah yeah that was one of the most incredible calls by Kevin Harlan watching game live where he's calling the chiefs game and call and the dolphins game at the same time truly a tremendous tremendous moment in a broadcast history in my maybe maybe maybe if you want to go crazy maybe altered NFL history because if the Patriots win, it is Tom Brady and Tampa who knows I mean you never know the way the stuff place out if they would've won. Yeah. No. Good. Good point on that I. It's it's definitely fascinating to think of what would have happened but look the dolphins in my opinion you could not have played this anymore. Perfectly. Right. So you go about last season and you're trying to tank but. You're trying to. Play the thing out the right way. So you WANNA lose games, but you want to let your experience with Brian floors be a good one and you want to keep guys motivated on the roster and competing and trying to perform while you wanna be able to these guys aren't trying if guys aren't performing well, then you're not going to be able to evaluate them properly. So you need to get them playing to their best. I think there were able to evaluate their roster well, enough. They won a few too many games that some people all my God, these guys are blowing their opportunity to number one pick, but you know what? They had identified that tour was the guy he wanted. You know he was I'm not saying that if they didn't have the shot Joe Borough maybe they wouldn't have gone after Joe Borough but they really liked what they saw into two was obviously the number one quarterback heading into the two thousand nine Teen College football season. We didn't know Joe Borough was going to bust out like that lsu but. That season two is the number. One Guy. They played it out. They got their number one guy they had patients within this year they allowed him to finish up the rehab work through everything so that he could get to this moment and I think they planned all along to insert him and I think that this is not a team. My opinion that is. Believes that too is going to be that big of a drop off from Fitzpatrick now, I may disagree with that but they don't. They probably don't believe it is an even if he is a little bit of a drop off, I think that their sites are not on winning the Super Bowl in twenty twenty, their sites are on building a team. That can win the Super Bowl over the next several years. So losing a few of these games, even though you're playing hard and trying everything is in your best interest why? Because you need to see what you've got into a unique to get him as long as completely healthy into the Games experience what happens inside of as a starter in the NFL. So that, you can get him to the point where while he's still in his rookie contract, you're competing you have a stacked roster around tin and you can try to win games in his third year in his fourth year, etc. So I think they're doing the right thing here even though Ryan Fitzpatrick has been completely balling out, it sucks to see Fitzpatrick have to go back on the bench, but there's any guy. I've read quotes from over the years who has a better perspective on this I'd like to see him because Ryan Fitzpatrick is all class I've got a very strange question to ask you that I did not prepare you for. So get ready. I read yesterday that the office coordinator for the cowboys Kellyn bore is the last guy to complete a pass in the NFL that was handed. Have you ever looked into this at all? Obviously, we I remember Steve Young being left handed. We all remember that, but there has been an extremely low amount of left handed quarterbacks. Does it alter anything? Are you at any dessert? Do any teams look at it as an advantage or is there an advantage that could come from being left handed? Is there a disadvantage in your mind from a guy being left handed? It does feel like. It would be very different right and even like where guys lineup and what hand do you hand off with and we're which side you roll out to. Rich side is actually you know your blindside right now present your blindside is always your left tackle like there's a Lotta odd things that with it and I was struck by I did not realize and kill more universe starter and barely completed any passes as an NFL quarterback He with the last guy, and that was five years ago. Have you ever heard four years ago? Have you ever looked into it? While the sample sizes so low with them that it's really hard to pull anything conclusive but you're right in terms of the adjustments that this team is going to have to make during their bye week to try to figure out how to. Like you said that the the right guard and the right tackle are now the quarterback's blindside whereas before it was the left guard and left tackle and they got a couple rookies over there that are gonNA have to be coached up to now this is the QB's blindside. Did it's going to be an adjustment for defenses too but the offense themselves needs to get comfortable. With the delivery angles for any quarterback I mean even if he's a right handed guy, the delivery angles, the launch angles away the ball comes in how how it drops out of the sky whether it's thrown harder or softer. All these things are adjustments that receivers have to make based upon any quarterback. But especially when you have a left handed quarterback coming in those things are. Factors that will play into how this thing will go and I think that's one of the reasons why it's good to get as much experience with this as possible to try to figure out what you're going to do here, and so bottom line for me is the sooner you can get him out there. Once he's healthy this is what you should be doing as a coach in the NFL. This is what a team should be doing. You draft a guy you let them develop when he's healthy and when you think he's capable of playing that's when you claim you don't just sit him because. You're thirty, seven year thirty-seven-year-old quarterback has been balling out in creating a fun environment like Ryan Fitzpatrick is not your long-term answer. There's they've obviously analyzed that he is very unlikely to win a super bowl for them. So this is the direction that you had in and great observational on your part I. With the Left handed nature of this, it is going to be an adjustment. All right. Last one before we get out of here Warren, is there a turn back to running the ball with great success at a correlation to winning And say because last year, some of the best teams were also the best rushing teams in the league and this year some of the surprise teams are the ones that can run it, and so we went through this phase where it was the best teams were the best throwing the best passing teams and the run game or running backs certainly became less and less valued over the years and I do wonder when I'm now seeing. So many of the good teams also be great rushing teams or teams that have outperformed. What we thought they were going to be be great rushing teams is this is the pendulum swinging back a little bit on this. So my answer to that is is no and here's here's why. I went through and I looked at every single team that is leading their division right now in the in the standing. So you got an AFC, Buffalo Pittsburgh, Tennessee, and the chiefs and NFC you've got Dallas Chicago Tampa and Seattle all those eight teams six of them. On early down in the first three quarters, which is the most predictive like this is where coaches can call what they WANNA call. Six of the eight teams are actually running the ball less and they're becoming more pass heavy. Some of the most dramatic teams that have made those shifts from last year to this year include the Seattle seahawks who went from forty nine percent pass in that situation latter two, fifty, nine percent pass this year the. Buffalo bills went from fifty percent pass last year up to fifty seven percent pass this year the Chicago bears they increased their pass rate even the Tennessee titans I look at it but the board when they're passing not that's when they're running the ball not how well they're running the ball I. Understand that it is it's better to throw it on first down than it is to just run it run it third long right I get that But there are also a lot of teams that are very good that are also. Leading the league in rushing yards. Well I mean when you're winning games, you're going to have more rushing ours even a team like the Tennessee Titans Right Tennessee Titans, we always talk about Derrick Henry and we know Ryan Tannehill is good button isolating just the Games at Tannehill started for them last year versus this year they moved from forty percent pass last year on early downs at the first three quarters up to forty seven percent issue. That's a pretty big increase small sample size and what we've got so far this year what we're seeing. Though. In terms of what, what maybe you're seeing on your end from the numbers perspective in terms of the output from these teams on the ground is when you build the dribble to run the ball more to gain more total yards. But in addition when you're choosing the most optimal situations times to run the football, your rate statistics are going to increase. So if you're running the ball less on I, tand the beginning of a game where those runs aren't gaining very many yards, but then you're able to run. The ball in situations which are better to Ron or the box counts I think this is the where teams are moving to next is your analyzing what the defense is giving you. This is what Andy Reid did. He admitted to doing it in the rainy game versus the buffalo bills on Monday night the early kick game was he's looking at what the defense is giving them and he's reading the fact that they're they're playing soft. They're playing back the boxes not crowded there. An -ticipant passing they're trying. To prevent the big play. So on light box counts, they're running the ball and this is why Clyde Edwards Allaire went absolutely desert. So yeah, I'd so what you would say and what? I what I am viewing is what happening now the successful teams is on I ten, they throw it, they get seven yards now on second and three day might run the ball and all of a sudden that guys getting nine to twelve yards on second and three whereas on if he was running it on first and ten. That may be the two yard game. You exactly you're running the ball more often when it's appropriate to Ron especially given what the defense is playing at that point in time and the defense has no are you gonNA run or you're gonNA pass your it's great situation to do either and then they're box count is light. So now we got extra an extra blocker here we got a one man advantage plus one plus two, etc. so this is when we're going to run the ball and ironically you you. Look at a team like the Baltimore Ravens their offense hasn't been quite as good as it was last year they were the team that was a crushing everybody because of all these Lamar Jackson runs, they were really inflating some of the rushing stats league-wide. We're still having a lot of the teams that are leading their divisions running the ball more efficiently but less often, and again, this is ties back to the beginning of this conversation how analytics is helping shape how these teams are performing these teams that are. Leading their divisions with the exception of the chiefs because they've gone up against teams that are playing soft, and so they're taking advantage of that. Mostly seems are actually passing the ball more and twenty twenty than they were in two thousand nineteen and it's helping them earn more wins and get into first place in their division, and this is the influence of analytics in decision making processes over the course of the week of prep, and during the course of the game, not just like the one or two situations. Where you have gone for two or you didn't go for to that, everybody wants to talk about and just focused analytics discussion on that. Whereas I think it needs to be broader way broader than that because the the the influence of analytics really is the fabric of a what a lot of teams successful teams are doing more often offensively throughout the league I agree with everything that you said, the only thing that I will take issue with is including the cowboys and their numbers division leader when you are just. They have to be set aside you seven leaders as five right don't. Don't include their stats at somebody that is doing things the right way police. Won't argue. We have got an unbelievable. Weekend ahead because it got. At least two or three really fascinating matchups and then a couple of teams that their season might be on the line this week if they don't catch a win but I know we've got that Titan steelers game, which is unbelievable and we got some other good ones. I know you and House are going to be covering all of it on Friday also Kevin Clark and the crew will be back on the NFL show. Tomorrow. Warren. I will talk to you next week. All right my friend. Thanks everybody for listening to another edition of the NFL show. Make sure you're listening to Kevin Clark crew to more.

Hour 1: Why Is It Always You Florida?

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

Hour 1: Why Is It Always You Florida?

"This is the Dan lebatardshow with this to spot casts. All right I am not making up what I'm saying right now and I don't know if I'm violating stuff here or what but Billy Gill is out. Okay he is not here today. And I got a note this morning billy won't be here today he had to go to the doctor for stomach cramps. And I'm wondering if it's related to the Marlins, I'm wondering if he is such a fear base creature, he was wondering this. He told us a couple of days ago. He said he was having stomach stuff and he didn't know if it was related to stress from these Games you know an acid that just eats up his stomach, but he's just looked up and realized, oh, look the braves are real major league baseball team in the marlins minor leaguers who played. Sixty Games this season very well, very well, and they might be something they've got players that might be good down the line the pitchers. The top end pitchers held strong and they'll throw another one today that might you know try and get them into the series again like they've got good power arms but the braves have beaten them twice I'm not sure if billy's not out because he just hates the braves stomach cramps related to the braves and snicker that guy, he was gonNA. Can you back off with the minor leaguer stuff like they're not a great offense. It's not the caliber offense of a lot of these playoff teams but they have hindered like just just back off with the minor leagues well. Years ago, they're not a minor league team, any or the record. There were a record number of major league debuts being made by the guys on this team. That's all I meant by that I'm not trying to actually disparage them. They've got like a record number of guys making their first appearance this year we understand that but there are eighteen still remaining eighteen still playing baseball and this minor league team one of not to disparage the Marlins it's not okay. They're not a young team they're veteran team is that. They're veteran team Miguel Rossi's out there and he's the leader and he's not a minor leager. We did this a couple years ago with the marlins where they legitimately were a minor league team and they've improved thank their their farm system is one of the top ones. So these minor leaguers that they're calling up are better than they used to be I'm getting very defensive. I'm just sorry because you're a loser the last couple of days, teams laws you cursed out the twitch audience at the end of a very long night take it easy on Chris. He's a very delicate place for the. Next couple of days his back is against the wall I made a terrible place. The Bay it is I. Do believe that Billy has gone to the doctor because of the ploughs mice, sloppy intestines I still blame for the Eastern Conference finals between the heat and Celtics, headed into that game six, the Lebron game man I couldn't poop right for two months after that I, put it on the poll please who's handling the polls with Guillermo. Out. Tony, can you put it on the poll Have you ever had a stomach issues profound stomach issues because of your sports team fear every Sunday. Jets. Wow. So you've got into it if you've had no immune to. Because to a point with the Cleveland browns because I also had a bad team want long ago and I actually like we had a winless season, we had one win over the course of two seasons. Everytime we lost I was cool with it at that point because I was so beaten expectation and hope is where the pain in the summit comes from. When you in these from conference finals, you feel with that you felt like a blueprint was on the line, but with the browns. Now, I can go outside I can go on the boat maybe Oh, wait a minute I need to stop for a second you everything around here needs to stop I. Take is just putting up the sound of Isaiah Thomas telling Max Kellerman that if Lebron James Wins these finals, he no doubt quote no doubt passes Michael Jordan. It is ear someone has chosen it this year we have arrived at the place where the incredibly tired who's better Michael Jordan or Lebron James Debate has been answered in favor of Lebron by Zia Thomas if he wins one more game and he wonders why he was left off the original Dream Team, seriously bad messenger there does seem to be a just a general feeling that this series is over on Friday I, don't know if you read the nugget that the Lakers who were slated to where the Mamba uniforms in which they. Haven't lost in they were slated where that game seven. Now they've moved it up to game five and you know why right everyone knows why it's not because you just wear black to a funeral, which is something that we've seen time and time again in the NBA finals they want the moment they want the moment I think you can take odds on whether or not. Lebron says Kobe this is for you in the same way that he said, Cleveland, this is for you afterwards, they all want this to play out on. Friday. I don't know if the Miami Heat are gonna be willing participant. Well, let's and and you would foul it up the the Miami Heat would be the only thing that could foul-up him giving us a a sports moment that is going to be interesting and emotional and cool, and also if you're cynical. BLEEP that business plan by Lebron ends up working out where he holds up the trophy at the end over ten years of dominating these airwaves and at the end, he's going to climb according to Isaiah Thomas into the discussion of Michael Jordan. No doubt climb over him as he's giving us not one. But two of those moments to God's the one in Cleveland that was heartfelt and this one I don't know what his relationship was with. Los Angeles. vis-a-vis Kobe right because a lot of people were criticizing I thought this. Was Unfair Lebron James for not attending the service of Kobe Bryant Right and what I felt throughout in Los Angeles to God's off of Lebron James is sort of a rod going to the Yankees, Oh era you're great but you'll never be our guide jeeter and so Lebron, goes to Los. Angeles goes to Hollywood creates a media empire. It's the right choice doesn't drag it out like he did the last couple of times in a way that got his fame to where it is. So now he can run Hollywood. Meeting. Wants and Ali what he's he's preparing for after his career while still in his prime in the finals averaging whatever it is twenty, seven, ten and eight, any wins one for Kobe. And now shouts the story Book Hollywood story the Story Book Hollywood story in the Mamba Gear after all year I mean help the bubble began with Adrian Hausky writing a story Kobe would've loved it so much here. Yeah that's the story and story supposed to play out Friday unless Kelly Olympic on the store. I mean you can't wear the Kobe jerseys and lose. You can't do that. I know I'm heat homer. But generally when he get to three one and you have the talent disparity, you're seeing right now play out. The Lakers lead three one. You. Would see quit settle in on a team like, okay. We'll get him next year. We had a very good year. Jimmy. Butler in insane person I think he'd legitimately thinks he can win this series still. And we will see what ends up happening on the front of Lebron. We've seen one time already in these playoffs somebody come back from down three one twice. Two Times and we've also seen Lebron. The reason Lebron gets to be in this discussion with Isaiah Thomas and Michael Jordan, and the reason he gets to do that is because he won the won in Cleveland. Yes. If he had won three in Miami and was three and six but hadn't won one in Cleveland, we wouldn't be doing this. He gave us the Emotional Ori Book while improving his popularity. Only one that's doing it is Isaiah Thomas I'm not certain as. Be doing this was his for avenue else is doing it listen. He's if he wins this, he gets to a fourth title. It's impressive. Michael still has six and I'm not saying the can't wait another two we can. He's playing I've been consuming a lot of ESPN daytime programming. Miami Heat outside this is one of the rare times that their series has led the APE block we're talking about after Jimmy puts up one of the greatest finals performances. It's curtain jerking on PTI from male time. Right? It's that low in the a block. It's a three one series right now I'm sure they would much rather talk about a competitive series although. I think given their history when it comes to Jordan Lebron maybe this is exactly what they WANNA do but they're talking about this because it's a three one series because it's a foregone conclusion that the Lakers are winning it it's a three one lead, but it's not your traditional three one lead. These are neutral courts they're playing on the same court fronted no fans like it wouldn't be that far fetched to see the heat, get it to a game I'll tell you what's far fetched and reasonable of you as the character and after got this is what what's unreasonable because you're sitting here saying he may win two more a May get there. In your personal record book when he gives you the moments, those are worth more. You've always done that like you gave you a moment against Cleveland and if he gives you this tonight where it's we did this for you. Kobe and it's the mythical moment you tend to do that thing where you give people to titles or take away two titles. If they don't give you your field, you can't do it tonight the Games tomorrow night you got me to the best. Do really trapped me what eight terrible correction. No this will not count is to now for me, every Michael Jordan gave me so many moments are you saying the six threes against Clyde in Portland game more jobs I'm? Learn to. Seven I'm using your words. I mean he's got six title at. GEICO Presents Monster Counseling Dracula tell me how you're feeling.

Donlevatar Hey Dave Stugatz what up? This is the Dan LE. Batard, show with STUGOTZ ON ESPN radio. ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance quoting home insurance just got easier with progressives homequote explorer quote, and by all along at Progressive Dot Com. All guests on the Dan lebatardshow appear via the Shell Pennzoil Performance Lot. So I'm bothered I'm annoyed on a couple of frontier STU? Got One is Marlin fan who doesn't have a person out there who is saying bad things about his or her team, and so they've chosen me as the say bad things about his or her team marlins fan your season has already been a success. They could lose to the braves again today. Twenty nine, the nine, and you want to sleep in playoff series against the Chicago cubs at something a Bill Don with young players you replenish your farm system by trading three either MVP's or MVP candidates depending on how you feel about Marcelo Suna I totally agree with you everything from here on in his gravy but once you get there as a fan, don't you kind of want it so bad I understand teams are good deal better than they are the randomness of baseball help them. It's one of the things that helped get them in with the run differential minus forty. They need hitters like they're gonNA get shut out and postseason games against postseason pinchers like they need people who hit They've what they did with their MVP's is they replenish their arms and their farm system, and so that is something to build on for playoff games. Now, for the braves three of them shutouts first team to do that. But that's created a major league baseball history and the hit hit like crazy. I mean get over yourself. Braves fans a little bit though you're just the kings of winning divisions. You might win around be having won a world series since ninety five. Okay. Just like I got a few braves fans in my text messages that are taking a victory lap clearly better than the marlins and we all know you're going to lose the dodgers. The dodgers are very good. The Yankees are looking to spoil all this stuff because everybody is rooting same way they were rooting for Lakers Boston to conjure up a different time there rooting for Yankees and dodgers as a conclusion to this weird season. But the Tampa Bay rays aren't in the mood the raise the nuggets. No watch the raise their nobody wants the raised up their world series. I mean tell me the Lebron moment where he shouts this is for you Kobe doesn't feel bigger and better against the Boston Celtics than if it's against the Miami Heat, it absolutely does equal. The other thing that I'm I'm tired of and I understand that it is the lifeblood of sports radio in some ways. But one of the things that is happening for too long to God's instead of pitting Lebron against his peers although as soon as he got thirty five years old, then we finally started having the ridiculous conversations about his steph curry better than he is is Janas better than he is Leonard better than he? WHO's the best player in the sport but here he is a thirty five averaging the numbers he's averaging in these finals. Again reestablishing his place as he is the best person in that sport but we have diminished him for as much as we've covered him as a network by covering him. The way that we have to got, we have diminished the excellence in front of us by making it simply about winning and losing instead of appreciating the. And what it is you're witnessing, which is a man who can do all the things Michael. Jordan did who seventy pounds heavier than Michael Jordan ever is right? I think you're right.

Donlevatar stugatz talking about movies is one of the most amazing things you'll ever see. He says, he wants to know movies title what a movies about he was just yelping and complaining Stugatz slobby dances with wolves, which is one of the most overrated movies in the history of movie making the guy never dances with the wolf if the title of the movie is going to be dances with wolves that guy dancing with wolves, Costner never did it. Off Three hours for for a guy to dance the wolf DCC Donlevatar show with the two guys on. ESPN radio. Yes Chris `Roy like many of our listeners over the years who remember dances with wolves he did actually dance with the wolf in that movie That makes the rejoin of ten years sound stiff but every time we played that rejoin somebody reminds us. There was a wolf danced with that's literally the named the native Americans gave him. Yes. That's right. That's right. Available debates not debatable. But okay let's move on. Are they indeed calling him river Rhondda Sandisk gambling with our lives so they calling him river run. Let's go. Let's fill hard rock stadium with sixty five, thousand people the bad idea. Let's do that and the even the dolphins are like, Oh, come on we want the money to but come on. Apparently. He gave all the stadiums this authority two weeks ago we just didn't notice it because we're all just trying to wrap our brains around wait we're opening everything. But yeah, the said we'd actually had this option on the table for two weeks. We're GONNA follow. CDC. Guidelines. Okay. Good for the dolphins like that's I'm surprised they're doing that because I just figured that Stephen Ross. All organizations needed the money wanted the money and they. Want it right now. So good for the dolphins are saying thirteen thousand fans we will take fans we will take money from thirteen thousand fans but not from sixty, five, thousand fans. So we don't have a super spreader situation of course in south Florida Heat you're not really going to get sixty five thousand fans to see the one in three dolphins of Ryan Fitzpatrick you know get you five field goals. That's not. Something that's going to it's going to lure that many fans to begin with it. Will Joel get you sixty five right? He would get you a good. He would get you good crowd under normal circumstances I don't believe that right now. Even. Even I mean given what you've just seen at the White House, which if it were a meat packing plant would have been shut down already like I think even the most ardent of people who want to ignore science and facts and just the general courtesy of wearing a mask for others. No I shouldn't go to a sixty five, thousand person rally when Herman Cain is dead I need to not be doing things like that I think even no matter where your. Politics are no matter how much you want to deny science I? Think you understand that sixty, five, thousand people in a place is the reason we were talking about who was who were the bands that were playing in the dakotas it was mouth was headlining and who else? Like because we can't do concerts anymore we can't like we can't be doing sixty. You will not see an event of sixty five thousand people anything anywhere except cowboy. Stadium because Jerry Jones. Thinks stadium. Vacuum cleaner that's open air and we'll take a hundred thousand. I mean, well I don't know that I think they're cheating I, think they were only allowed a certain amount and it felt like there were more there too and and good for you guys to get to watch that defense all of you who went into that stadium and got each other sick I mean the Auburn. Georgia. Game was ridiculous. It was it was more than halfway packed. It was so loud I. had to go to a silent counted that game. I didn't think during a global pandemic when we're just easing vans in their someone has go to silent count lie sixteen year old daughter asked me daddy why are there so many people in that stadium? Din The seminal gets like a crown that was uncomfortably large Florida. Why is it? Always you man why is it always you Florida seminoles on have to worry about that anymore I didn't think they needed to worry about it. Then it was Jacksonville State and Georgia. Tech. Oh new season do leadership. It was Jacksonville state this week I think they were down at one point twenty, one, seven, they were. But. That is not That is not what who was against. The first time that we watch is when they lost at Georgia. Tech I'm sorry, Christine. Lisi. We've been Yam `ring here. Please continue. And finally, Joan, a hill had to be hospitalized while filming the wolf of Wall Street, because he snorted so much fake cocaine. Oh Wow, and that is that is hospitalized the snorting of fake cocaine. Thank you, Christine. Did you see Stugotz This is according to John Granado. that now, some of the details of the reports are coming out on Bill O'Brien and he and Jj Watt got into an argument or shouting match on the field and it started what led to what John Granado is reporting was a player revolt. And it can happen with a bunch of other guys as it did options and others. But once you've messed with Captain America, you gotta go. But you gotta go because I've been making the joke all the entire season the Texans need to hire someone to fire Bill O'Brien because Bill O'Brien was the general manager and was the head coach but apparently, they didn't need to hire anyone they already had that person on staff and that person was Jj Watt. And you know Jj's feeling pretty good about himself today walking around the facility and look I got fired I took care of Business Jj Watt what have you done on the field? So Bill O'Brien could continue to be the coach of the Houston Texans because you have not been very good for a very long time. It is added I, mean not a very long time. Since you've started ripping him he started getting injured. Very difficult position to play and it breaks the human body and of course, you've got into his head because he cares deeply about what it is say ask my can you get for me the sound because we played this at the beginning of the season when Jj Watt was asked about the coaching abilities of Bill O'Brien and he gave such a great non-answer like just that was totally empty. We played it on highly questionable and it's laugh out loud funny to gots to. LISTEN TO JJ WATT. Try Sort of circumvent the question of just say something Nice about your coach and he couldn't quite summon what he needed the summit in order to say it. So just sort of gave a mealy mouth sort of he's our coach as an answer and it wasn't much of an answer and then stared ahead silently at the interviewer. But that team is owned for at least in part because it's really difficult to play the chiefs and the Ravens and the steelers. Like that would happen to a lot of people but something else to worth looking up can you help me with this please and can't do it while I'm talking I believe the guy that has now climbed into power and Houston. If I'm not mistaken was a former team plan and if that's the case, it rivals bolsters story of going from video coordinator to coach chip, the Miami Heat and if indeed it's the case and I shouldn't have gotten tangled up here because the GM. Romeo Cornell Not Romeo Cornell, the guy who initiates part I think for casting The idea that someone would come from the from the. Chaplain. Job. To that job, that is a guy who got into the football system and really figured out how to do some work for himself as well as got like because good God that is difficult to do those jobs are really really coveted. You have people climbing all over each other in the football community get the top power job at an organization. I think his name is Jack Easter by he was the former team chaplain of the Patriots. Wow So it came. So chaplains coming from Ohio. He came into evaluate the Houston Texans he fired. GM. Brian Gain. Now he fires Bill O'Brien. As he was brought in yes. Yes. I can help you patriots. You have a murderer and your huddle. Yes. I, am here to fix the culture with God's help. Let me go over here and grab this Texans Job Real quick from Bill O'Brien when no one's lugging. Donlevatar. How do people always go missing in the mountains don't go to the mountains and by the way I don't want to erase it. This is the most white people ever going missing in the middle of the mountains. It's the strangest thing you go by yourself. You don't take a radio you don't take a phone you're missing for four days and they find you like ten years later covered in snow. It's like don't go by yourself. If you're going to go on a trail, don't go by yourself to God's put it on the poll. Is it the whitest person thing ever I believe is what you called it going into the woods by yourself is going into the woods by yourself I. I can't disagree with that. So so black people don't. camp. Yeah. Hike, camp they'll go on to this is the Dan LE. Batard show with two guys on ESPN radio. ESPN, radio is presented by Progressive Insurance News from the DAN LE, Batard? Nation. Someone has just hit us up on the DR pepper twitter. Feed. I like that we have a nation that you have a nation sponsored by Dr Pepper do I really do it's exciting. We have a nation congratulations to you having Asia Oh. It's interesting. The only thing the nation does is produced Stinky tweets that we sponsor. Dez broke at underscore get money seven, one, eight, ask quoque did fat as Dan say Lebron could do everything Jordan can do after inserting twenty-seven crying laughing emojis. He went on to say quote Lebron is great but you've lost your mind Fatty Mc Fatman. Geez that is harsh. I'm sorry ahead the read that I love I love the splitting of hairs that ends up with rage name calling, and you can look at the stats if you on Stugotz do the boxes in a ring ring in a box and he'll say six rings but Lebron James Statistically does everything better than Jordan just go look at the statistics but of course, you don't want to do that because the only statistic matters is six versus three. Another tweeter writes in Hey dip bleep he danced I don't know who he's talking to their you or make v either hey dip bleep he danced with the wolf every time it came down to the camp. That's directed. It made Dan. Thank you that guy that guy has been emerging for ten years to eviscerates to God says dances with wolves take we have a nation and you have a nation but a about a movie that I don't think. Chris. Cody is seeing as Chris cody ever seen dances with wolves now Chris Cody I have not Tony have you seen dances with wolves? I have no idea this. Makes me sad who wants dance the wolf? Anyway what do you do the job everywhere? Who's dancing with wolves? Guess that is what you do. Stu Gods. Thank you for making the show even older than it was when we talked about dances with wolves when you summon the last dance, you've heard of the CIA. That's right. Thank you guys. It wasn't bad enough. We were just doing a show from the nineties. You took a straight into the sixties. That's right. That is what you would dance with a wolf, the cha-cha. So Chris's place in a chat that Texans Executive Vice President of football operations. Jack Easterby on a very long term contract. I've never seen that phrase before on a very long term contract is closed with Patriots offensive coordinator. Josh mcdaniels as well as de facto Jim. Gm Nick Caserio both clearly names to watch and Houston according to Ian Rapoport. So He's close to Josh mcdaniels. He's close to Bill Bella, cheque's close to God. And he is the Texans Executive Vice President no longer close to Bill O'Brien because he pushed him out of the way I. Always find that interesting when it doesn't work with one Patriots Offensive Coordinator and you're putting together Elissa candidates we gotta get next offensive coordinator from the New England Patriots in here to fix the job. Let's say very long contract mean I know well, that's just great. It's a great phrase from Ian Rappaport. The reporting is on a very long term contract that would appear to be different than the one that Bill O'Brien had. So he's on a very long term contract I just like the idea of well. We really couldn't do anything with Charlie Weis and every resident genius Bill O'Brien. Every resident genius that was next to Matt Patricia who stood somewhere near Bill Belichick, and therefore we thought the Patriots way was going to end up in our locker room and I just like the idea of like head hunters going out to Foxborough and just wandering into the chapel. And being like oh This guy. This guy here he talks to God and also our Lord and Savior. Maybe teams ran out of options because the giants took the special teams coach Joe Judge he's off to a great store on the way the Pelicans. So they were silence moved onto the past. Where else where else can I go you'd be like, come on guys, knock it off with these patriots. People were smarter than everyone else just because they stood somewhere near Bella check I guess that's what Eric the enemy Asiedu is standing next to the wrong coach. He should have the enemy. You know what to get noticed during chiefs and Patriots be enemies should have just walked to the other side minor next the Bella check and just. Thinking of somebody would have noticed it maybe the chaplain noticed notice. That black guy got him.

Then the talk in your at the forefront of it the ian with your great insight is there any way on this green earth that jack easterby honestly is going to be the gm and make football decisions after what bill. Belichick said about him in the personnel department. Jack easterby positioning himself to be the general manager. Really interesting comments from from bill belichick and no i news a couple of different races to read it and i looked at the headline and it was basically. Just bella. check says the jackie's to be not a personnel guy which sorta seems like an insult. But then you watch it you you you read the whole thing. It doesn't sound like check was being insulting at all. In fact he was very complimentary. The jack easter being the way he helped the patriots came in the wake of aaron hernandez is and you know served. The character coach there. They'll check was basically asked. A question is jackie's to be a personnel guy. No he's just not now. He did a lot of personnel in. Houston he worked. Hand in hand with bill o'brien And i think if you ask jack. Easter that question. You'd would probably give very very different answer because he did do a lot of personnel work in houston. But i think ballots six point. Is you know. That's just not what he is. And i think the patriots function as an organization and function for two decades. Having people do their job. What are you good at okay. That is the only thing you were going to do. And it's clear way she's eastern now you know could he be positioning himself to run. Football and houston. I mean he's running football. He's the head right now. He's beefy of football operations. He's in charge is going to have the heavy end in the search Yeah i mean. I think it's possible this stays on for another year. Sure okay. how much to jackie's to be come into play. It was maybe this. And i don't how much did he come into. Play on the shipping of deondraye hopkins. My understanding is pretty personnel decisions. That were made from the texans. You know from contracts to the big trades. He was very involved. Work hand in hand side to side with bill ryan. You know the impressions. I got from brian where that they were doing it together. So everything that o'brien gets killed for or everything. He gets praise for then. I think easterby was right along with them. So i mean i i see it as they were basically a tag team. Until o'brien was you know of course fired after. Four games in rappaport rap sheet on twitter. Nfl network and our insider here on sports talk seven ninety and we were discussing and reading your tweets about that. There is a chance that romeo cornell could be like the bridge. And i'm paraphrasing the bridge to twenty twenty through twenty twenty one until next year. Now i because of covid why in the world we play games. We tackle people coaches are in meetings. They do it all. Why would covid prevent. Or if texas think this. Why would we have a problem. Interviewing eric be enemy table with a mask on and looking or any of these guys looking at the resume would we have to keep. I'm not saying romeo's not a good coach. But why would we have to keep him on. What in the hell would cove would have to do with hiring a new head coach. Yeah great question. And i think that's something. Obviously that came up in the wake of my report. I mean you look at the landscape of where things are Is it realistic to think that owners. And a lotta times. I mean you know usually the way it is is owners go on private planes with a couple of people and you know you interview. You're in and out of various rooms. You're interviewing different people. Let's say you go to the team. Facility could interview to of their coaches. I mean it just. It seems a little farfetched at this point to say all right. We're gonna put an owner on a plane. Ten days travel all around the country and and do in person interviews. Is it possible yes. It's possible but it seems a little unlikely. The argument that was given to me. And i think something that is being considered inside the texans building. Is you have romeo kronos. Stay on for another year. Maybe easterby runs personnel for another year. You kinda work with what you have you get your draft picks back. After another year the job becomes more desirable for gm for instance. 'cause you have draft picks You you know okay. I think if you look at the landscape of hiring a head coach very very hard anyway It's incredibly hard. It's even harder in kobe produce. You may not be able to. You know shit with someone and go out to dinner with them and do all the things you would do So that's the argument that basically because you don't want people for health reasons flying around the country we probably have to do the interviews on zoom and you really wanna get forty million dollars to someone you never met in person. That is the argument And that is a way that you know. Romeo would stay. As head coach and jackie's to be of course would stay in charge of football. It would be a disaster for the franchise a personnel guy who doesn't know personnel and romeo. Who i love if we had nearly. I know how much you respect them to. If we gave put hall of fame defensive coordinator assistant coach aria. Romeo's enough but let me be devil's advocate to this. And why i find this fascinating and i love that you're talking about and you've got great insight because you talk to people is we can coach and we can meet. We do so. Let's say. Call eric on the texan to say during your time off when you i'd love you to fly in we'll send the plane for you. We'll bring you here. We'll meet at the office. And we're sitting across me and jackie speier be the you know the the owner and jack easterby him i. I'm just trying to figure out why that's dangerous. But we tackle raw meat. I i don't understand why. I can look at the tape. I can talk to people over the phone. Andy reid about what eric be enemy brings to the table. I got everything i need. Are we really at a time when we're doing it. We still go to restaurants. Restaurants are open people go to movies. People go to ball games. People watch their kid play sports. Are we really going to delay the hiring of a head coach because we're worried that he's sitting across in a meeting room with a mask on. Has it really come to that Well first of all. I would say in that scenario. You couldn't fly are the enemy and i know what you're saying. I'm not saying you couldn't play at the enemy in because you know. I assume his team's going to be in the playoff win over. But then then you're talking waiting. I mean i understand what you're saying but you know when you getting life is not normal. You know it's really not and you know where where i live We're still mostly open. You can go to. Dinner at restaurants is shutdown coming in. You know january. I a lockdown coming. I've no idea but certainly it is possible and his cases spike. I think it's you know something that the politicians in charge will will of course have to think about so if the country is in lockdown. Then i think flying around the country. Coaching search will almost certainly not happen. You know the nfl has parts fair in very very strict about following local guidelines. If there are no fans and the country's in lockdown you know does the nfl owners to fly around the country. I don't i don't know these are all and here's the other part of this. I think you know the world has continued basically through zoom for five months. So if you ask me personally you do whatever you want right. I'm just making the arguments that you know. this is. Why is why is being discussed inside. Detecting building did is this the most important higher. In two decade franchise general manager and head. Coaching higher will be the most important. Hire for this franchise with watson house. The best quarterback there can have been more important higher than what they're about to embark upon. Yeah i mean. I you know i probably would have argued that bill. O'brien was but you know this. Isn't this organization absolutely a crossroads. You have a great quarterback. They great quarterback is entering his prime. And even though you know. It's it's weird. 'cause i think watson's playing as well whatever and all the things that bill o'brien salt was going to happen with the office from hopkins out probably has happened. Not that he. I mean there's plenty of things to bill branded wrong. I'm just saying deshaun. Watson has worked better. He's entering his prime. You have some things on the offense and you know really all over you need to rework. Certainly defense run defense. Cover everything but you also j. J. watt who comes at a crossroads to they contract extension the off season. They traded you know something has to happen. So whoever's in charge is going to be making all those decisions those are hugely important decisions. so yeah. I mean i would say this. Is you know one of the most important things That the texans have gone through really Very very long time. You and i are analysts on a show you're not an insider because you when you just for a second you get all this inside. What your your personal opinion. Just your gut feeling on this. Do you believe romeo cornell will be the head coach for the texans and twenty twenty one I don't know. I know it is being considered a know. It's something that you know comic and jackie's to be going to discuss. I think the public reaction was extremely strong. Maybe that's sways the owners. Sometimes that can happen I just don't know. I mean to needed be not unprecedented but shocking and unconventional. But everything the texans have done over. The last couple months is an unconventional. So i would definitely not out in great stuff. Momentum drink works by keurig is the perfect start to set any holiday vibe.

How Is It Possible?

Highly Questionable

22:21 min | 5 months ago

How Is It Possible?

"I. Have no idea what you guys were talking about but I'm down. Sure. Talking about ousting from the network okay. Great. You get paid too much and we don't like it. Too highly questionable ever tarred. That's Pablo Tori and Katie Nolan she's firing shots right off the bat let's get started. The people need to know I am at least ten percent underpaid. Should the titans have to forfeit a game for breaking covid protocol? All right. So the structural integrity of football has already been compromised. Katie's Patriots were at a competitive disadvantage they contain the outbreak, but their most important player got a positive test, and so they ended up flying onto planes the day of to the chiefs and they ended up losing because they don't have their quarterback while the titans get rest while the titans don't. Get punished in any way even though they've had a total outbreak. So you're basically getting rewarded so far for an outbreak and you're getting punished for containing it, you can't have that but everything's on the table because of the bare naked greed involved here, we will move games for hurricanes. We will move games for fires. We will find the place to play the games for money no matter how many bodies we have to send into. The sickness this is something that is rare that you get this bare naked. They'RE GONNA get to their money just like baseball got to their money and it doesn't matter if they have to compromise the structural integrity, maybe they go with forfeits maybe they go with winning percentages it doesn't seem like all the teams are going to end up playing sixteen games. Yeah. This is such a difficult thing to deal with for the League. And they should be better at Ed want to be clear about that too. But it's so difficult because they don't want to have to punish anybody for any thing. A forfeit is the nightmare scenario because as Dan alludes to that means you're losing a game a televised game, worth millions and millions of dollars to make a point and the point is really important. Right? The point is that, hey, NFL players, college football players, young athletes. You may be fine with the thing we learned seven months ago about virus that you know if you're asymmetric in otherwise healthy, you can invisibly an easily spread it to people who are going to suffer from it to the tune of maybe two hundred and ten thousand deaths plus and counting that is the issue. So I wanted to be a point made, but this for the NFL is like dealing with. Their kids right and their kids who are like staying out late and partying and doing all that stuff and the parents in this metaphor are saying, Hey, if you don't stay in by curfew, we're GONNA. Sell our house at discount like it punishes themselves more than it does the kids and that's the bind. The NFL is in right well, the by the NFL is in right now is that we're asking questions about protocol that is entirely unclear. If you have an actual protocol than we would know what happens in the situation when a team tests positive. But instead, we're in a situation where some places reporting that may be a forfeit is on the table in other places are reporting that that's not going to be on the table because we don't really know in the other thing is we may know that there's an outbreak happening with the titans, but we don't know how many other teams. Have Broken Protocol and just happened to have not gotten it but could still continue to get it in the future. The other thing that's important is that the Tennessee Titans, what they violated was they gathered for a workout. We may be talking about players who are playing football. A sport that we've all said is very difficult and you have to play at a very high competitive level. They're not feeling like they're getting into practice enough workout, they're. Not In. Good enough shape. So they gather to they're not partying they're working out and it's like, how do you punish them for wanting to be good at football when what we're really learning here is that maybe football shouldn't have moved ahead and if it did it certainly needed a much stronger protocol and now they're in a pickle with fairness of the game and equity across the League. It's just this is a huge mass of their own creation. And that is a good point Katie because it my metaphor I'm talking about the kids misbehaving and all that. But in this case in reality, they're doing exactly what you say these football players are merely doing what they have been trained to do and coach to do their entire lives, which is play football at any cost necessary practice get better at any cost necessary. Unfortunately, in this case, the cost can be a life. Very not. Say something remaining joke at the end cost. The cost could be. Yes. It's Jesus. Yet. Are you cool with JJ WATT deciding to fire bill. O'Brien. Oh, trapped in America that was the last Straw. Any number of players could have had problems with Bill O'Brien Hopkins. You're Outta here. But when you mess with Captain America then all of a sudden, there's a player revolt. Now, we should have seen this coming. Okay. Because during the offseason, Jj Watt answered a question about Bill O'Brien coaching. So carefully that it told you everything you needed to know this is laugh out loud funny. You're there on the inside what makes Bill Brian a good head coach he's got to play all with a little bit different role. What makes him good at at leading this team? I think his job is to is to do just that is the leader James to obviously more of an offensive guy you guys. So it's it's to lead you overall day but bender lead the offense and. Now. Lights. Wells to. General manages do everything in your. Organization. That's. Obviously cells that. The. Don't even listen to the words just watch the discovery, the fiddling with the hat, the soothing of the body that was an uncomfortable place that Jj watt was in, and now the reports are that after starting with games against Kansas City in Baltimore and Pittsburgh and starting Owen four that they were done with him and I understand why they'd be done with him. We've all been questioning Bill O'Brien for wild from the outside because he got Laremy Tunsil in exchange for next year's number one and number two that now go to. The Miami. Dolphins while getting. De'andre Hopkins out there but not getting something commensurate with that. So basically traded a lot more for Laremy Tunsil then he got for De'andre Hopkins and that's where you start with some of this stuff. He built a team that's a little bit broken and the credibility that he had is lost with us and his players. It must be noted with that video. The Jj Watt is very good at that. It reminds me of a couple of years ago when I asked him about Brock Osweiler his quarterback. And wanted to see him fumble for lack of a better word for a way to describe him without actually describing the reality of him and he does it and he does it very well, which is why it's so remarkable when we see him sort of not doing that anymore posting a picture of the Sun. Shining. Through Onto Energy Stadium Bill O. Rien. He sort of stepping out of his usual polished media I. don't even know what you call it where you basically just sit describe what a coach and general manager does because you don't want to talk about what this coach and this general manager do There were other players on the team to Shawn Watson I'm paraphrasing. But his his point basically boiled down to like well, it's business and things happen, which is not the tone. You always your players go above and beyond to be like, Hey, coach leave and that's not really happening here. So while I'm sure if you know how these things work, you know bill. Bryan. Probably get another job somewhere else I. think it's worth noting that Romeo Cornell now is the interim coach and he's been an interim head coach before, but he's also been on this team. He's a new guy that they're bringing in obviously down injured coach works, and if he can motivate this team who already knows him who if they had an issue with them, it will remain if he can motivate this team that would be a really good argument that maybe Romeo Cornell should be getting looks for head coaching gigs in the future. So I. WanNa point out that I do think Jj Watt is good at that kind of rhetorical technique eighty described but his goodness is mostly an indictment of us because it was an is effective but only if the people listening are expecting so little it's like a defense attorney is asked is your client guilty and he attorney goes my clients job is to be not guilty. My clients job is to be not guilty which is defined as not committing crimes and then he just sort of continues on. What's especially nuts about this though is that the owner of the Texans is Callum McNair he should not have needed a JJ watt revolt to make this call. In fact, Bill O'Brien reasons that are now obvious to everybody should never have had both the head coach and GM title in the first place because you have a conflict of interest there right as Dan said, send out. All the graphics in the future because guess what ill? O'Brien. The head coach he's Mr President He needs all that help right now and instead what we get a disaster like this and Katie is bringing up Romeo Cornell, which makes me realize that the only guy who has that title. Now I think actually besides Ron Rivera who's given it by desperate franchise is of course bill. Who is head coach and GM and his great at it you know who is not good at any of the stuff related to coaching football the people who have worked for Bill Belichick the idea that guy it all of that with Rubio credential and Bill O'Brien and the assemblage of other dudes that is the greatest tested to the New England patriots that exists.

Will Tom Brady be washed again if he loses Nichols and the bears go right slightly better game than jets and Broncos River of sewage that they gave us last Thursday and what you're going to end up seeing with Tom Brady I think over the course of this season as he ages differently than anyone in the history of quarterbacking or anyone in the history of youth as you're going to see inconsistency from a guy who has been remarkably consistent. For his career, the way the aging process is supposed to work with normally aging athletes is that you can still bring it on occasion. You just can't bring it as brilliantly as consistently. It's why Shaquille O'Neal referred to himself as the big aristotle you are what you consistently do as he ages at forty three years old you're going to see more pick sexes and you're going to see on occasion the Tom Brady who responded from that pick six. Last week by going fifteen of sixteen for four touchdowns in two, hundred, fifty yards I did not have Dan Levitan being the person on this show to accurately quote aristotle. But that was in fact, an accurate of Aristotle I would say that Tom Brady aging differently is my focus here because on the one hand, he has actually been fine more than find this season right three touchdowns two weeks ago five touchdowns last week he Buchan years may well. Win This division ahead of the saints they look like the best team so far but in terms of how Tom Brady is aging, there was a story in this espn dot com piece by gentle lane that will never dislodge itself from my brain because apparently Tom Brady really doesn't like the sweating of the center that he receives the football from. So when we joke about how Tom Brady is the old guy and all of his teammates are relative. Just know that what Tom Brady does literally is have his center put baby powder and a towel in his nether region that Tom Brady can receive the ball. Nice in the way that he prefers. Courteous. He's also never eaten a strawberry. The man is obviously strange and weird. But the question is, is he washed in the answer though the petty in me with like to say yes, because of course. We get a big fight with your best friend you want to see something bad happen to them for a little. You want to see other people realize that they're not that great. But the reality is like he's forty three years old he threw five touchdowns in a game in this brings up the real issue. With this question, we have to stop taking words we hear on the Internet and saying. Them in context where they do not belong words have meaning rate. You don't throw five touchdowns in a game and are washed or a washed again, which doesn't even make sense like defending a woman on the Internet does not make you a simple and most importantly one that I know bothers me not and I is when people say this didn't age well the point of that is supposed to. Take a tweet that was sent in a completely different context that now looks bad given some new revelation that we have about you. It's not I think the titans are GonNa win and then the titans lose and you're like this didn't age it doesn't work words have meaning and it's very important that we keep to those meaning. So that communication does not break down while Katie your answer was Super Lit. I just loved that Katie respected the question and. Obsessed about the word washed and Pablo wants us to forget all did in that segment was say Tom Brady Center should wash he should work. Tom Brady doesn't like his nether regions that was not very good analysis from he just wanted to tell you something that was interesting that had nothing to do with the question don't be fooled by the way. Dan is like wait a minute baby powder in a towel cure as nether regions wedding interesting note to self highly questionable is presented by Samuel Adams from Boston with love savor the flavor responsibly part of happy hour. Question Dylan Moses's little brother should be allowed to play against eighth graders right before we get to the eighth grade brother of the prodigy from Alabama. Dylan Thomas the best player they have on their team and has been great at football since he was thirteen years old let's check in with the six year old who isn't six years old. Years Old yes. Watch this watch this here. This is horrifying right here. MAZING. Yes. just-ended Group Eight White Shark and then. Let you think that's ridiculous. Let's check in with a ten year old with my body type out there. Wait a minute he's ten. Four to ten year olds stand top of each other inside of football uniform inside the football uniform. Let's check in with Dylan's brother. Oh I mean. Oh. My God. The. Sad, claps. Everybody gets a chance you get. Tackle you missed tackle I would say detrimental the him to play with eighth graders. He should be on Varsity go talk to that kid who still in traction because he tried to arm tackle whoever that large child is I feel like he might be hampered or than any now because that kids going to know, okay football not for me I'm going to start working towards this other career goal also not to be myself here. Aristotle and now Dylan Thomas but Dan went Dylan Thomas, instead, of Bill Moses and that is A. Beautifully poetic error because I just wanted to quote Dylan Thomas. Watching that video. That would not go gentle into that good night you would not. In fact you're in it everybody else unconscious. This runs in the family because he's all grown up now. But when he was fourteen Dylan Moses looked like this when he was standing next to Leonard Fournette who at the? was, the number one, recruit Milan. Thirty pounds. That's Leonard. Fournette as a high school senior is not as large as Dylan Moses. It's fourteen. Can't I just can't relate eighth grade was very different for me Oh, man yeah. When did you hit your growth spurt? Katie I. Yeah. It was a bit of a club probably between conveniently between eighth grade and freshman year. But it was like a growth. It was almost like a hair growth spurt because I had that little boy haircut through from first grade through eighth grade. then. So when I showed up freshman year finally with hair it was. A change of pace for me. Do you question the value of acquiring the skill are yes. Let's see what we have here. Yes is a good way. Without knowing what is let's general wired skill is right here. Okay I stand by. Oh, not. Oh. You thought he was wearing a cup. he might for the uninitiated his name is Mr Iron Crotch I don't know what's the name of. My only wish is that I had been initiated sooner is a hard way to discover the content being made. All these years. Oh Thank you might of been struggling with. Said what is the name of the rest of them? Clearly, those are the iron crotches the entire family, several generations of Mr Iron. PODGE, all of his relatives that is extraordinarily useful. However, if there is any skill that metaphorically resembles what we should all be able to do in the year two, thousand and twenty, it's take a giant wooden swinging poll right to. Yeah and if there's anything else that sums up twenty twenty, it's referring to being able to take a shot in the crotch as a skill that's not as skill you built up a tolerance. Sure. But I wouldn't say that you're highly skilled because somebody can just take shot. I would love to have that as a nickname. Honestly I would love if people called me Mr. Tonight at nine PM Eastern game, three dodgers and padres. These teams are really good both of them. I mean I, know you know the dodgers are good with the padres a really good as well, and let's watch how the dodgers won last night. First of all, you get this in a playoff game. It's super rare cody bellinger that's not hitting the ball long. And fell injure. craiglist still pointing. Voiding before you lance. Is He. He's got to feel pretty good about that, and now let's check in here with a pitcher here. Bruce. Doggerel. He is reacting to that and you may see that Manny Machado yes. This is. Mary Tyler Moore with his. Let's say he's saying F you. Almost something I. Wish I could libary that seems like a useful skill. You got the gist of it. I think. That the general demeanor was spending a lot of Fu him yes. Yes. I just want to know what the up maybe he was like few and a, but we can work through this as friends you can't tell. You. Bob Lower you intrigue I am intrigued because most underrated part of the clip is the pitcher not just for the celebration but because that's do throws a hundred miles an hour with movement used he was throwing balls ninety nine with no problem and the funny part about all of this courses that he is the pitcher in the mookie Betts trade that the red sox did not want because they didn't think his physical was up to snuff. So Congratulations Boston real good decision there it's up with the show today. It. So it was a variation of this from First Grade A. Great. Katie Nolan, Ladies and gentlemen. Back. Magin. Six seventh and eighth grade experience. That haircut on it and Look at those sideburns we're out of time Katie. Nolan that's Pablo. Tori find her sports with a question mark. FIND HIM ESPN daily. Thank you for watching. Please be friend.

"It's the truth. Podcast with marc schleyer presented by sweet sweat. They will stick to podcast. Your host mark slur. Along with my co-host mike evans scott. The produce the show. What a great job scott's doing. I mean it's amazing A couple of buttons. And next thing you know we start talking. And then he cleans it all up and sends it off into space near the ether. That's our little scott us. I'll tell you when he's not in the hospital. He's one hell of a producer one hell of a just keep them out of the er anyhow want to present sponsors. The great folks over sweet sweat for all your athletic needs. Your supplement needs sweet sweat. I tell you they've been great. I'm still. I'm still right there. I'm gonna make my next push. Mike my next push down into the below two forty five. Got off the wagon around thanksgiving. I did you. Did you had a but i only gained about five pound heat sir. Pizza tenderloin dake run there that yeah it was a big run for me running the gauntlet but from forty eight up to fifty one fifty two all right so it wasn't too bad so i'm back pushing i'm still probably right around fifty fifty one so i'm back pushing to get down in time by christmas. Then we do it all over again right exactly. I want to get down to around forty five. Just be sexy. You know that way. I can get some of them Similar pajamagram underpants things. Yeah yeah some nudity. Judy stance around right. When we're opening up christmas gifts just dad and his nudie anyhow. That's the great folks over sweet sweat for more information. Check them out at sweet sweat dot com also a superbug. America's best bet to in one. Baby i'm back. How coming back. And i was wanted to again and i'm just you slowly but surely getting away by only what do we have left four or five weeks. That's right all right. So the great folks over to beck bet. America's best bet our buddy. Well the seventy two dolphins got to do that. Annoying tradition of there's pop the cork pop the cork simple scotch dealers. Go down and i do you believe in good losses is it may be better for the steelers to lose a game. Yes then to deal with the well. Mad at bulls eye of being undefeated got then. They're like i have now. They were under like what what they've been through because of covid everything. The last couple of weeks Has been tough games. Getting pushed around moved around and all that stuff lack of continuity all the stuff they had to deal with mental. Toughness is a big part of that. So that's good. But i have been on one of the few people Because i was on really good. Teams has a chance to run like that. Like i've been eleven. Oh with washington. And i've been thirteen in denver and so i understand is a couple of things one you know. Everybody in a brother's uncle wants to talk to you now. In covert different. Because if you are eleven oh in a normal season. You'd walk in your locker room. And every national reporter in the world would be sitting in your life it. It just becomes a pain in the ass. There's not room to get around like normally get your beat reporters you get a couple of people your locker room you know and you can navigate it and there are there are like thirty people in your locker room right and it just becomes you start hiding in the training room hiding in the weight room getting away from people so that poor becomes annoying. They haven't had to deal with that. Maybe media requests for zoom calls and crap like that. But they haven't had to deal with people being right there sitting in your locker. You're coming in from a workout or you're coming in from 'blanche and you wanna get into your locker and goal versus a couple of things before you practice and somebody's sitting there so they haven't had to deal with that but it is stressful. It does weigh on you mentally. And i think is a team. You tend to overlook some of the little things that will cost you game some of the nuanced things that will cost you games. And i think that's the biggest thing you know you get a holding call or offsides penalty or you know or something and everybody kind of laughs. It off going. Hey man again have that you know when we play a good team. That's going to cost us the game. You're like yes. I know crazy. I did it all right it. Everybody got jokes around about it but eventually you you have enough of those issues that crop up and you get your ass kicked. That's what happens to you. So i'm just telling you that sometimes in these situations the best thing that can happen. Is you lose a game. Then the coaches bring all those little things that they've talked about for the last eight weeks they bring back up to the forefront and they go look. We talked about this in week six here. It is in week six here. You did the exact same thing here in week. Thirteen cost us a game. This you know and and so it resonated it sinks in it hits you and you've got lost now and some of that you can just wash away and now let's get back to the business and give credit to washington They battled district playing well and mark. I i never thought. I'd say this but the nfc has become really interesting and entertaining. It has because you look at washington is done. I think they're on a three game win. Streak with the giants have done going into seattle. They're on a four game win. Streak going into seattle. And i think the biggest thing mike is. You'll adhering to what it is that you have become finding your identity talking to joe judge before that game saying hey the first five or six weeks. We're trying to figure out what we were. What is our identity and once. We kind of figured out what we did. Well what we don't do well putting people in positions to execute. Let's big right. Hey man we know what we're good at and we know what we're poor it and mixing things up and giving is an opportunity to go on half success. I think the giants have done an exceptional job with that. And they controlled the line of scrimmage thinking about this. They went into halftime. They were down Was a five. Nothing ain't nothing. Whatever it was and they adhered to the run game. He probably had a. They'd had less than one hundred yards of offense. I think in the first half. They adhered to what they were doing. They kept pound and kept grinding. All of sudden they get a breakout. Sixty yard run by wing allman. And now they have. This battle of attrition was this game. They have leaned on the seahawks. So much. That third ranked defense just started getting splintered and so really good job jason garrett. The offense coordinator calling plays sticking with sticking with those things and finding a way to get victory in seattle. Really tough tough fought game with a backup quarterback. That's it's a pretty amazing victory so stay with the giants for second. 'cause joe judge is he going to be one of those rare exceptions. A coach from the belichick tree. That actually does well i think. One thing about georgia's authentic. He is who he is and does he have a lot of those a lot of those bill. Belgium qualities absolutely also old school. Yeah but but he's he's himself like it's not fake. Look at what's going on right now. All the issues that you've had out of the bella trick tree was charlie or josh mcdaniels or even romeo cornell to some degree whoever was the gotta head coaching job and failed right. Look what's going on right now. Mike rebels got his team in playoff hunt. The giants in joe judge. You've got themselves in pro on the miami dolphins. Yeah with brian flores. They're playing pretty good football there in the playoff hunt. So those three. That's pretty good. That's pretty good from that. Treat app three guys right now. That are actually doing really well. So i'll give them. I'll give him credit on all those things. So you got the giants looking and people feeling pretty good at five and seven the other team in new york. Wow wow i mean wow what a spectacular way to lose and they come on zero blitz. Yeah rex ryan says it was. Maybe the worst call defensive call he's ever seen The jets corner always safety or yeah. Somebody one of the guys on the team. I think it was just say do. It was criticized. Yeah he criticized. Greg williams and williams quickly been fired. He's out adam gates is still there. I what do you what do you make of the jets. I mean right now is. Is this as bad as you've seen. I mean we've had bad teams. We had sixteen just a few years ago. But is this as bad as you've seen but it just everything around it this new york. I think situationally speaking first off you know with thirteen seconds left you drop you drop as many guys you can drop you. Force them to throw the ball underneath. Make a tackle and get the done. That game is over so that might be the dumbest call. Rex ryan might. That might be the dumbest call ever but to fire the guy. Listen i there. There's party that feels like he's the sacrificial lamb like you're you like you called it say hey man we can't give up that number one spot overall because we drove lawrence so you called it and then you're like oh you dumb ass you know. They came from the came from the office of the you know the owner. I don't know. I don't know what's real what's not real greg williams is. He's an easy scapegoat. Because he's greg williams He's zero blitzed over the course of the season a bunch. That's one of the things that he does. He's an easy scapegoat. He's an easy target. They're an absolute train wreck of an organization. The fact that you don't fire adam geza simply because you don't want the new coach bump that you talk about all the time right. You don't wanna listen guys to rally around and actually get a win detroit. Detroit writes real man. It's real bump. Yeah because even if have an interim coach. I don't care it's a new coach. Bom absolutely you're you want a you want to go out there and say see. It wasn't us it was him. It was matt patricia. In detroit and you go down and you end up winning chicago thirty four thirty so yeah there's a. There's there's something to believe that. I hope they don't get the new new coach. Defensive coordinator bump the jets bright all of a sudden when you get not take coach only when the head to head coach and then somebody gets elevated. Yeah interim head coach. Yes when you get the new coach bump yup. What about the giants. They fire marc colombo. Their all of line coach they have lost sense. Okay all right. I see where you're going with that a lot of giant fans. That are really yeah. What's up with that now. You are at march earth on twitter and it's a very most times it's a. It's a very interesting follow no matter what but it's it's usually really good right after you've called a game because one of the teams usually the team that loses fan bases loves to come after you love to come back you you completely engaged in this case. It was the giants fans after a win. What happened there. Well apparently i was too excited about Jamal adams who was in new york for a while even though he was the jet. And so you do have a man crush on jamal adams. Well i can't blame you jamal. Adams is that good freak. And oh by the way i. I was all over jabrill peppers because he played great me ran over chris carson and i got all excited about that but i didn't you know i and i got excited about. I got excited about decay. Metcalf absolutely pile driving a corner and it wasn't for a lot of extra yards but stiff arm and just piledrive somebody yet and so apparently for giant fan of not all most giant fans are reasonable people. But there's there's some people yeah people. Yeah there's some giant fans that i wasn't i gave too much love to the seahawks and they won the game and their first place an nfc east and they're gonna storm. You know storm down the doors. And i didn't give them enough credit and boohoo and And all that stuff. And so you know i mean i whatever you know me i'm just gonna go back at people and engaging and goof around and stuff and then there was all brigade of people at That came after me while we're talking about fan bases that are known for being kind of prickly and combative philly fan like that and actually you know what philly fan is interesting. There's a little different yet. They're like giant fan is is pissing and moaning and whine about not getting enough credit. Like like they're like well ever since. Joe judge started coaching. The oh law and you're more on you haven't done your homework like judge a head coach you dumb ass. He's not coaching. The oh line. Now he's made some changes and he said. I wanna get away from the philosophy that some of the philosophy that colombo was coaching. And i want to go to a different philosophy. I'll give them all the credit in the world. I talked to him. You don't you. You didn't prepare all for this game. You didn't new. John van you didn't prepare it for this game. You're moron so so anyhow. I like it for my friend. That's all right anyhow. Joe judge has changed. The philosophical approach more colombo got a big fight. And they've got some guy named i call him double d. Yeah dave to the gig liam. Oh yeah here's with. The patriots were different teams. He'd been and so. That's where judge joe judge's just like hey listen man. I want to go strictly kind of gap pin and pull. This is what. I wanna do. Colombo and jason garrett were more of a zoned blah blah blah. He didn't like it They they they didn't get in a fight they they screamed and yelled and and he got dismissed but to to act legit judges now coaching the. Oh line you're an idiot if you think that. So i bring a philly only because it's one of the great mysteries. It really is one of the great mysteries of of this season. What the hell happened. To carson wentz dude looks broken yet. I mean this is a guy who just last year was playing at a high level. He got one of the richest contracts ever given out and now the guy looks broken. He is lazy fixable. Mike mechanically mcan like he just. He sees ghosts he he feels goes. He feels pressure. Even when it's not there mike Like you see him is never sadness feet like never stepping into a throw throwing off platform when he doesn't need to throw off platform now. Trust me there are plenty of plays where he asked throw off platform because that offensive line is gorge. I think it's a combination of a lot of things. They can't block anybody because they've had so many injuries they can't block anybody carson. Wentz has just been so beat down that his mechanics are terrible and his accuracy is suffered and then they don't threaten anybody vertically so you either pressroom. And gem line of scrimmage. You're not afraid of getting beat over the top or even if you're in zone and you're at seven yards deep your plan a flat foot. Rereading your pattern reading. So you just playing flat-footed mike and you're like not one of these guys can beat me on a double move. That's how teams are playing. So every throw is tight window throw amir every throws a tight window throw and and carson is an isn't accurate right now with tight window throw and nobody has. Nobody has any any separation at all. I mean it's it is a and i think the other thing doug peterson you know. He's not he's not shouldn't go blameless. I don't think there are a lotta easy answers. I don't think they say hey. Man are quarterbacks struggling. Let's give them a bunch of easy answers. There's not a lot of outlets stuff form. There's not a lot of quick throws floor for I called the game in cleveland and they set up a great double. They set up this great double move. That's that's wide open mic. It's a wide open off of off of a play. Fake like a fake bubble screen and go. It was a fake bubble screen and go and jalen rager is their rookie wide receiver right. And he runs down like he stock. Walking in pam hits he takes off on kind of like kind of You know into open space area like almost a Almost corner out. And it's why it's a. It's if you just i could throw it one hundred one hundred times and it's at least twenty five your gain and if somebody with accuracy could throw it in the lead him you know. It may be a touchdown. It's going to be a forty fifty yard gain and instead he throws the bubble. It's a fake bubble screen and go. He gets off of it. Throws the bubble screen linebackers out. There picks it and takes it for touchdown the other way to pick six. And you're like what are you doing like there's decisions like that that happened for carson. Well it's just not it's just a bad. It's a bad product. You know you mentioned the browns. You're an easy going guy but one thing that triggers you is whenever anybody brings up the idea that the mike shanahan gary kubiak offense is outdated right that it's archaic and you get pissed at that and i'm looking at it. What cleveland did last week with kevin stefanski. Who's a kubiak disciple disciple. Cleveland put on a show. Yeah forty one points. Baker mayfield was just playing pitching and catch so so much for that archaic offense. Yeah i mean when you can run the ball. Control line of scrimmage and you can set up you play action and do all those things. I mean it's amazing. It's amazing non simple doesn't tell you how how things work out for you. You think about this cleveland to now. They lost odell beckham junior date. They lost a They also lost somebody early in season. Now the name escapes me. Who's on i r. But he was a deep he was deep through guy. Can't i can't remember the kid's name also but he was a deep threat guy. is now currently on i r so they lost their two big speed threats. Mike and and so they don't have a deep over the top guy that they can consistently rely on. Okay so that's kind of where they are and and You know you gotta joe. Johnson was there their deep time speed receiver over the top guy. They lost him. They lost odell beckham junior. And so they rely on dominating line of scrimmage. they've got a great offensive line running the football and consistently run the football with chubb and hunt and they're great and then you setting up your play action and getting over the top on your play action stuff and when that stuff is working man. It's it's really hard to defend. And then all the boot keep game getting using baker. Mayfield athletic and get out there. He's accurate on the ron. He climbs pocket. Well he does a lot of things. Well so yeah. They're legit and they're gonna legit opportunity. You know at a playoff berth. So real quick. We look at the afc and you see kansas city. And pittsburgh there the alpha dogs right And and it would be real easy just to say. Put these two in the afc championship game of all the other afc teams. Give me the dark horse team. That wouldn't surprise you if they were this year's tennessee. A team that you look up at the end there in the afc championship game. Who is that that is. That's a good question is it. Cleveland is it. Buffalo is it. Miami is it. Is it indy. I would. I would tell you that if i picked team that i thought was the darko. Steam darkhorse team. That could meet kansas city in the afc championship. And you'd be like oh. Yeah mesa's it'd be buffalo. I think i think they've done such a good job on the development of josh allen. You know it's like all of a sudden josh allen because he's always had incredible arm town talent. Incredible athleticism right. But all of a sudden josh allen has you know blossomed but you go back to his first couple of years twenty eighteen. He led the team in rushing. You know they were atop they were always at top ten rushing team and bottom third passing team. I two years in the league. They were ninth and eighth in rushing thirty first rookie year and twenty sixth in passing this year. Twenty third in rushing third in passing right and part of that is. They're not using josh allen. As you know as that quarterback designed run ten twelve russia's game anymore he is he's opera. He's really developed nicely but again having a plan to develop a quarterback understanding. What does you know what. What's the best way to develop that quarterback and and they did that right. Run the ball. Control line of scrimmage used the quarterback run. Set up the play action. Let's limit him to eighteen. To twenty three passes a game. That's what they were and and let him learn the nfl game on a pace. That is on a pace. It's appropriate for the maturation of a young player tip of the cap to buffalo. Because they've to me they've done it the right way. They understood what they were. They developed a system to help them along the way until their quarterback was really ready to blossom it. That what a novel concept what concept. Yeah instead of the you know the toilet paper throwaway society that we live in where it's just like. Let's show them in that right now. And maybe he'll be the next mahomes. I've got i've got i've got news for you. There's only one mahomes. There's very few guys it can come in. And just you know like the league on fire from day. One that's could pick. I liked that. I liked that buffalo pick. They're they're well coached. they're tough. They play defense. They play special teams and they play in in tough conditions. Which right we'll have them battle-tested weather wise for the for the playoffs. Yeah the bills. Mafia the toughest people to the tables they break. They break a lotta tables table brain. Lot table win. Giant fan comes after me. I'm like oh gosh here. We go giant fan like giant fans. Fake tough guy fan. The bills mafia or real. Tough guy fan when they come after. You gotta look over your shoulder. You can't resist. Kenya can't resist now. Head token the bear. I'm talking about the knucklehead fan. Every fan base as knucklehead giants have more well there's more people in new york city good point. Yeah play the percentages of the same guys talking. Tough about beat me up. We'll be taking pictures with me and get me to sign autographs for their kids. Those walking the streets of new york. You know how they are you know. They're i know for everybody involved in this podcast for mike for scott myself we thank you so much. We'll be back thursday to discuss. Our moneymaker picks in y suck.

Is Three Too Many?

"Welcome to highly questionable Dan is load management or something like that. We Got Dominique. Foxworth you've got. Means, we actually have people on the show who knows something about football. How big of a deal is at the bucks crushed Aaron Rogers and his prematurely gyrating pelvis. Man, you want to talk about a game to turn on a dime those first ten points the packers put up look easy for them to get air rod look great, and then the next two drives Agadir Ball back to the bus you basically to pick six is the first one, an actual pick six next one was run inside the five yard line and the bus scored right after that. But what happened next was the buccaneers defense just turned it on in dominated the packers. And that's the part that I did not see coming I don't think this is time to worry about the packers necessarily but if the buccaneers is gonna be able to play that level of defense than they can get away with. Tom. Brady being old because in that game top ready didn't look bad but he still looked like old Tom Brady just figuring out a way to get it done and if the bucks defense, then he can be old Tom Brady and they could still win. I'm worried about the packers. But if I'm another team, the NFL I am very worried about the bucks because they do have defense and very few teams in the NFL actually have defenses that season, which is something i? Think we should have considered we were hoisting pedestal a up to this point because so far he has played the vikings terrible alliance terrible falcons. What's worse than terrible? And the saints who I thought had a good defense but really don't so far. This year Rogers has been the second least pressure quarterback. In the NFL before this week Brady was the least pressure yesterday brave pressure rate actually went down Rogers pressure rate went way way up in. That is the difference look. He's still going be good. The packers offense is still going to be good to get to play Houston next week which cures all illnesses, but the buck team. That is a problem for the rest of. I don't know if I'm so confident that the packers are going to be good. Are they? They are good in the first place because we watched them last year we all saw them go through the season and dominate, and then they played the forty niners, which was a complete team and they got crushed and you just went through the team so. Far this year is not like they've gone through murderers row then you add to it. David. boxy. Arias is hobbled now and he needs to protect. Aaron Rodgers that's going to be a problem and you add to their defense since they picked up all those free agents a couple years ago they still haven't really played all that. Well, they were bullied last. Year by a bunch of turnovers, but they're not really playing sound deep and on the other side, they're setting up Tom Brady succeed exceeds what you WanNa do it older quarterback is not put a ton of pressure on him asking to make four five big doors throughout the course of the game and you isolate those four or five big throws Tom. Brady looked phenomenal yesterday. Then you look into that seat and see that he threw for one sixty realize and he really didn't do very much even asked him to be very much and that's the perfect recipe and as for the first question is important to know if you're prematurely have a pelvic gyration, all that means is you gotta do it again later. This. For those of you who watch football a little bit more microscopically to me you. act like they didn't happen look. That got me about air ride is on those picks. You tell me if I'm wrong here he's one of the greatest athletes ever to play quarterback which made the he could get away with some of those passes off angle and not necessarily being said, he looked like he had funny mechanics on those pick sixes and still try to throw it and it didn't go the way that he used to like. That's the one thing about getting old. If you him you probably GonNa need throw from a solid foundation a little bit more than he had in the past otherwise it's going to be coming right back at you. And that's why pressure is everything why it ended up being the difference in this game because you're absolutely right like a piece kept clean in what works straight he can make all of those ads do us a low management like it's the day federal holiday that nobody even told me about anyway, he couldn't help himself because it was air ride is here he is. You know was up to say, all right pardon the interruption I'm sure that you guys are besmirching and blaspheming. against my beloved Aaron Rodgers. Won't allow you to do it. I. Understand that that was probably the worst game of his career. I understand that seeing him throw a pick six as kind of like seeing an alien or bigfoot land on the field. But how about that sensual celebration? Oh, I felt so good in my heart everywhere in my body and my soul went up ten nothing. He did something from key and Peele in the end zone. This celebration right here sensual is hell. Should we praise the steelers or crush Baker in the browns for their performance yesterday? Look by the steelers won that game and to browse losted early tend to nothing it was our rap on that game. These are two teams that are out completely different tiers, and like I said about the packers will learn about browns is they've been smacking up bad teams and getting smacked by good ones. That's where they are on this one. Now, part of this is the steelers. Defense legitimately that good I don't know the last time that they had a defense that was this good beggar ain't the dude man like he may wind up ultimately proven to be a decent quarterback but tell me this when you watch him play do you ever see a number one overall pick like when you look at that dude if you had to point to the one thing and say Oh yeah I see why they took him. Number one overall. I can't find that thing to point to like even James West and had his struggles you could see like, oh, that's why somebody took him number one. Baker Mayfield what he looks like wow a short dude that was good at quarterback in college and rarely does that ever work out out here look alike, Russell Wilson when he's pulled that off, he just looks like insert name here of guy who didn't actually make the NFL The thing that you point to for Baker when you talk about why is the number? One overall is his accuracy he's lost at. So it really has nothing else to lean on in a league where most quarterbacks athletic athleticism isn't even that much of a boon to they're often. So I think that it's a waste of time probably to talk too much about the browns because. The steelers are really really good and I think they had the best defense against Lamar Jackson last year out of just about anyone that I saw without offense they were contending in that one game that they played when Lamar exit was playing I am nervous for the Ravens and that division I think right now the steelers are a better team they're better defensively more well rounded. Actual Pass rushers well, whereas the ravens they both blitz a lot with the ravens don't really create oppressor without blitzing the steelers can do it both ways, and then you put on top of it that Ben is starting to get more comfortable throwing the ball downfield and you got this Guy Claiborne. them the ball on sweeps you can hand into the backfield you can throw it up. You must slant it don't matter. He's a top of the league tight receiver. So the steelers are coming fast. I agree with you dominique that we should probably talk about the steelers the real contenders but I dispute the notion that we shouldn't talk about the browns because it's fun to roast teams. I agree with everything but Mani said about Baker and I think what's concerning Cleveland plans is like you're starting to get a clear picture who is right like he's not the dude in two thousand, eighteen rookie lit up the NFL I. Don't think he's the guy who was as bad as he seemed last year he's got something in between like the offense is clicking it's a run game is working if play action is working at those rollouts are working he's good like a lot of quarterbacks are those Shanahan derived systems but if you force him to drop back and just become a traditional or if he's under pressure, you falls apart. And Look. A quarterback that can go the distance we saw one do it last year all the way to the Super Bowl but everything around him has to be really really good for that to work. Your. Cousins. Kirk cousins like that's basically it. He's kirk cousins like that's what it takes. Everything else has to be right and then maybe kirk cousins or the Baker Mayfield's the world and get it right you know what I thought was actually the most damning indictment is we had we thought in Beca moment at first right Odell Beckham on the sidelines talking to his teammates except that was Beckham doing with quarterbacks normally do it was Baker? Mayfield to decide well, Odell Beckham tried to rally the troops because Odyssey Baker Mayfield in. Good enough to do that, rallying all of us to say Ado who wound up at the end of the game taken off his shoes like a five year old is the guy that this team has to trust to rally things when they're down because their quarterback can't do it.

Did. Romeo Cornell blow it. To against the titans. All right guys the Texans, they are not good. They already ruined their season by even letting bill. O'Brien comeback to coach the team in the first place they got out of there after it was too late to realistically think about making the playoffs and so the Texans over achieving over their head against the titans up seven late in the game go for one. And make the titans get a touchdown, a two point conversion or go for to in the game right in there Romeo Cornell. The last man you would expect to do this decided to go to, they did not get the to the titans came back scored kick the extra point and then overtime and I look at the Texans and I say what the Hell did you have the lose? and. The answer is nothing. We had a chance to put this game away and our defense saints why not? We might as well go for it did not work who you got more faith in that Defense Watson they leaned on John Watson I'm okay with that. Thank you for money for accurately describing what happened instead of doing what so many announcers do every week was which is. Whenever a coach makes an aggressive decision. Romeo, Cornell, did they blame analytics right? Become this weird cudgel ve for people to criticize these decisions when they often have nothing to do with analytics. In fact, in this particular case, ESPN's model actually favor kicking just by like slightest percent as you said, Rami Cornell did make his decision because of the other lyrics he made his defense is trash. To win the game, and for that reason, I'd like to the decision i. like the fact that you know he had big. Kahuna Ace, which is now something I regret saying goodbye seventy, three year old man. Well I mean. The. About a fifty fifty proposition and I think they baloney nailed it right off the top would you rather give that proposition to dis- Shawn Watson that may skew on the positive side maybe get you up to fifty two or fifty three or would you rather leave that decision up to dare Henry and your defense I seem to me that right there that's the time you think you believe that your guy can gain three yards is more likely than you get down and stop them from gaining for yards. Should they score touchdown at some point? I think the decision makes perfect sense. It seems logical to me. I would understand if he would've just kicked it but I don't think that's why they lost the game that Bomani nailed it right off the top you're the Texans what are we doing you play for ties what are you doing here? You're trying to win the Game Romeo Granola trying to keep this job or something who knows but you gain nothing by planet conservative in that in that situation, I'd also like to take a brief moment here and understand that last week was not the time to give the titans any credit for overcoming adversity because a lot. Of that seem to be self inflicted however I did think it was possible that NFL team could play a game on a Tuesday and then went on Sunday when the team that they were playing against played the previous Sunday. That was pretty damn impressive. Dear Kerry put two hundred yards under those circumstances. A lot of people talk about football and say, well, one team is playing checkers and other teams playing chess and like the insult is that if you're playing checkers that's their problem. But if you've got the only king, the field checkers is pretty damn okay and it seems like bats. What the titans are playing their hand off to their King Henry and he is bowling through people. Then they play accident off of that I. Do have to give Arthur Smith some some credit in the red zone. They've been pretty creative to find ways to it easy for Tanta Hill to make to complete passes it. I've been critical of town because I think sometimes, we overplay how impact where he has been, but he's truly been phenomenal couple of weeks these. So if they're canneries the king, what does that make Josh Norman like the pine that gets knocked over and the lay? Yeah. We all have to reevaluate you're not. So Beloved Josh Allen If he beats Patrick mahomes tonight, why are you acting like? He's the only guy on the team why do we only do this with this one? I have never seen a greater investment it one guy being good. Then they offer to people with Josh Allen who by the way is coming off looking like cheeks the last time that we saw them play. If the bills, happen to win this game, then we will have to look at the bills as one of the best teams in the AFC, if Josh Allen plays well in the course of this, we will give him credit for the fact that he has played well. But what we saw last week was teams realizing maybe we just need to zone up and keep. Our eyes on Josh. Allen. Just wait until he does something that makes absolutely no sense and then we'll have a chance because that's probably the best way to do it and bitchy go see a lot of that and his game today. So by that logic, Ben Derek Carr is currently the best quarterback in the NFL and we need to reevaluate the way we look at. No, I'm not going to change my opinion of Josh Allen based on one game just like I'm not gonna say that he's trashed based on the fact that the last time they played he wasn't very good internal over and had some turnover worthy plays that that were not caught or picked up. So I'm not going to change on a whim. My analysis of Josh Allen was pretty accurate up until the four games of this season first four games of the season. He was a different quarterback if he can sustain that throughout the course of the season, we'll talk after we eighteen you and I can sit down and we can discuss his current status and no point does anyone need to apologize or reconsider how they feel about Josh Allen because he hasn't really done anything to change the way, we should look at them actually were intrigued by the bills defense in this game the Josh Allen Because Wild Josh Allen was cheap second. Last week the bills defense is like the real problem of his team right? Because they've been what's worse than cheeks big cheeks ahead on this show. The bill defense has been booting that Nagata or dude like it. Yes and Bomani like you talked about how Defenses Times, defensive, particular play Josh, Allen, very smartly, defensive, doing that to Patrick. Mahomes as well. This year I wouldn't call it a formula, but you are seeing a trend, you solve the chargers, patriots and raiders where defenses are playing Moore's zone. They're not blitzing him. I'm very curious to see if the bills defense which blitzes a lot is gonNA take a similar approach. If they do that and have success I'd be impressed by the bills. Tell you what's funny. Though last year, there was a stretch where we were wondering about Patrick mahomes fallen off a little bit. You know what had happened teams decided they were going to play man against him. That worked for a little while and then all of a sudden it did not work up. The tells me to these folks going to solve that work or a little while. GEICO presents monster. Counseling. Dracula.

Some Credit Dominique. Phenomenal cash like these guys are great athletes they have on them. Stupid uniforms that make them look slow and they play that game that only allows them to do phenomenal things. Once every few weeks, it's a frustrating game but they're hiding phenomenal. Back there, but still I enjoyed the swag of cody bellinger like I'm always years. You say defector baseball has no place for you to be if all you are fast now let's take out cody bellinger. Eager run back fast too I. Guess That Matters Good Guy I love that dominate. The. This way. Oh ma'am. Way more disrespectful than a bath flip right. I'm not off base the admiration straddling like that. If you're if you just got hit, that's much worse than a deep in his bad ran basis doom both in the only criticism of Balladry I have is why ever run walk that whole thing keep temple the whole tub enjoying bass there's no clock. I'M NOT GONNA lie ahead if you just walked around basis, we gotta scrap it out by the time you get to turn. Lost about baseball unwritten rules is that no other sport has anything like being pitcher after having given up a home run and you just stand out there all via damn cell that has to burn I do feel like they have to be a certain measure of respect for the game on now. If somebody actually did dominic advocated and worked the entire way. I would go full goose gossage. Hit Him in the next time around your laws rationally right. Actually a traditional. Tonight at eight fifteen pm on ESPN Monday night football cardinals and cowboys. All right look I am intrigued and I know that nobody likes to hear about. His fantasy team I totally get that I. Think it's fair. I'm going. Into denies matchup. About. Sixty points I got Kyle Murray Andy Andrea Hopkins which is to say Oh baby got a chance played against the cowboys. Head eight. All of us have a chance, you might even have nobody plan against the cowboys and you gotTa Chains Dominique put your hand up you injury I have a forty point lead and I'm going up against Hopkins and drink. So I root heavily against that heartless team and hopefully Cavallo's can put together some sort of defensive effort. But I'm really excited to see what Andy Dalton does mainly because Ryan Clark last week on get up called demand Turkey Bacon and it was the funniest thing I heard all week because he is not as good as the real thing he ate really bake it. I just WanNa see what would don does he shoves it a Ryan Clark's as or we can call him Turkey Bacon on Tuesday more. You're going to lose it fantasy by the way meaner you. I know. I am intrigued despite the fact that as I told you guys earlier, I have Derrick Henry on my fantasy team. Already one, but I'll still watch because I love offense and there's going to be a ton of offense in this game. I ran up all Matt Ryan Julio Jones and Derek Camry in the same damn week and it's this week. On my team to. Tell you. It has been tough. It has been tough road until this week. All right.

Oh paulie didn't to give us his best and worst of the weekend so it was I carry over into the final hour. Dan for the first time in my history covering sports. I think that a sporting event is fixed. I watched boxing on the mothership. I watch a lot of boxing. And i was watching boxing and the mothership and one of the preliminary fights was it was the wb a super flyweight titles this title fight australian andrew maloney versus a man named joshua franko. Franco's i cut late in the first round. His i blows up at the end of the third round. They called the fight and they said that the flight was no contest. No winner because andrew maloney. The australian headbutted intentional headbutt that caused the cut on joshua. Franco's i i think it was tessa towards calling the fight he goes. We're going back and they watched every minute of the fight. The replay took almost thirty minutes. These two guys are sitting there with monitors. Replaying it and basically in the time while. They're waiting joe. Torre has the guys in back. They rerun the entire fight. They couldn't find any headbutts much less intentional head but they actually found the punch that caused the ida blow up a franco and andrew will only sitting there waiting on his stool for the thing. And after thirty minutes of replay these had yep it's still unintentional headbutt and the guy maloney got screwed on of title. That was a fixed fight. Go figure a fixed fight in boxing. Go figure. But i've i've seen him wear. That's like okay. Well the judges seem a little sketchy. Oh it happens far more than they should where you go wait. What were you watching. And but the. I didn't even know they had replay in boxing i. This is the first time. I knew that they had replay. They went to replay. They looked at it for a half an hour and they came back and said we're going to stay with the result headbutt in your worst. That was the worst your best. I got no best. Oh usually i go okay. Uh-huh bob what's on your mind today. Hey man Thank you for having me. You are a huge fan. I'm a huge fan of you. Man thank you very much Huge fan of youtube. Why here's a. Here's a shout out to the lake odorous. You're under that you had on the show years and years ago Best in worse you ready. Yes The best is dude. We have football still encoded with all of the stuff going on what. What an amazing time. Football do an amazing job of keeping these games on schedule and and You know just to be able to to shout out for that is is a wonderful thing right now the The worst is. I have a six year old son. We live in dayton ohio. He is he is listening at home right now and Do you know how hard it is to get your kids to watch football. When you've got the bingles to contend with well oracle. There is red zone so they can watch other. You can watch you know. Bengals didn't look good yesterday against the steelers but maybe don't raise him on the bengals maybe raise him to be a fan of somebody else there. But thank you bob. Thank you for calling a best of the weekend. You know the play yesterday Late yesterday afternoon with deondraye hopkins was one of those moments where. I'm watching it in real time because sixty minutes is gonna come out after that. And i thought well let me watch the end of this and then i'll watch a little bit of sixty minutes there. And you know. Buffalo goes down. Scores the touchdown stefan digs. And then you go okay buffalo. This is a big win. Because miami's winning. You gotta stay in front of miami and all of a sudden you okay. They got a little bit of time. Left and you you you had this situation where you can color murray make something happen. You're going to have to have a hail mary. Hey hey al murray throw so. He rolls left which was surprising and then he has this little fake just to have the defender stop just for a second that allows him a little bit of separation. So you roll left and you throw fifty yards and normally overthrow are under throw. He threw it into the end zone. Millions andrei hopkins went up. Got it and when he puts his hands on it and he doesn't draw a football and it elicited to incredible calls here. Here is the call as heard on. Wjr the bills radio network step. Murray pressured those four birds in trouble gets away from it rose to his fires it downfield puts it up for grabs entities. Caught caught caught for a touchdown. Unbelievable clock by deandre hopkins surrounded by a couple of bills defenders. He went up and brought it down. Unbelievable all you need to hear is the word god. It's this big bold throws down and it's fun and that's it that's it here is. Ktar the coal with the cardinals radio network very back to throw flushed out. Rolling left in trouble slips a tackle a launch. He does left side into the end zone. Jump ball and it is caught his. It cost paul by goodness off gets. What's second i can't believe. Dave pasch enron wilfley with the call and kt. Are i love this tweet. Patrick mahomes tweets. Deandre hopkins is a monster man exclamation points and then deandre hopkins tweets back. Same to you bro. Thought i had a ring last year until you hit god mode. That's a great tweet. they're great tweet started. Look at you know where where we stand with. Some of the nfc west is awesome. It's great three teams or six and three cardinals at seattle coming up this thursday. The rams are tampa on monday. Nine seattle plays the cardinals and rams down the stretch. Arizona has the rams twice seattle once rams at arizona week. Thirteen finish at seattle and then arizona at home. We've got a lot of drama left here. Lot of drama also with the bills the costly loss. The dolphins are three and with two. He hasn't thrown an interception his passer rating ten ten points higher than ryan fitzpatrick. Miami's now six and three and a half game behind buffalo. The dolphins are at denver at the jets. They host cincinnati over the next three weeks. There's a scenario where miami would be nine three after twelve games more phone calls coming up Best and worst to the weekend josh in michigan. Hi josh what's on your mind. It certain certainly can't be your college football teams. Hey dan Longtime listener first-time caller. Appreciate taking my call Definitely not rooting for that team up north even though i live here but It is a lot of fun so the weekend is my wife's line fan. I'm a browns fan. Both our teams one seeing nick. Chubb run out at the one Really just mid my heart. Happy knowing that we would win the game. Worst the weekend is nick. Chubb is my best running back. And i'm gonna lose this week's finished the game by two points. Yeah but i would rather win a football game or football bet than a fantasy game. Because i'm sure there are a lot of fantasy owners who are affected by that but there are a lot of gamblers were affected by that the over under i think was three and a half. I think it started out two and a half and they went to three and a half there with the cleveland browns. What an ugly game like. I should got paid to watch that one. Yeah pull. I looked up nick chubs contract and they cannot find anything he has different. Bonuses he does not have a touchdown bonus in his contract. Okay by the way the end. It's an oh by the way. The patriots picked up the win last night against baltimore. I know that we pencil in baltimore and say they're going to be there at the very end but you know. I give a whole lot of credit to bill belichick in what he was able to do last night. You know he can game plan whether certainly help that game plan. But here's bill. Bella check on the weather affecting the outcome. We practicing out during the course of the year and handle at ball and all that so whatever we get we get thought that the hardest part was really the you know jake handling the ball on the punts field goals made those are those are tough plays but just in general david camm on the shotgun snaps in the ball handling their. They did a good job on that garner fall hailing. There saw the ravens. Had some trouble with that. I thought overall we we executed those pretty well which is good. Here's cam newton after the win. Everything that coach coaches throughout the week. It says the come up and you know. I'm beginning to think he has like a staples easy button buffalo wild wings button or just a straight direct line to the football guys. Because he's like a football whisper when it comes to anticipating what the game's going to be like how needs to win and things like that. I'm extremely impressed with them. It's good a good comment from cam was also I saw this. And i don't know if it's surprises anybody. Nfl's ian rapoport reported. The texans may give the job to romeo cornell. He's the interim coach. He's a longtime defensive coordinator. He's been a head coach in the past. That didn't go well but he could serve as he stopgap coach allowing the team to get to twenty twenty one with some stability he seventy three years of age now. This told me a couple things. They're not getting. Eric be enemy. And if i'm eric be enemy. I don't want that job. Shawn watson is not played well since he got paid. You don't have any draft picks. Jj watt will be on another team next year salary cap issues and other than that. I mean if you want to give it to romeo cornell because you're saying let's try to get a little momentum so let's try to create an atmosphere situation where somebody goes boy that would be advantageous to my career to be a head coach their imagine saying i'd rather not be a head coach of a means. I have to be the head coach of the texas right now but if you have romeo cornell the job is open it just you have somebody who is your head coach. If you say you're still are interim head coach. I don't wanna make you my head coach. Because i i got to see if somebody wants this job but that was surprising. You know with covid you know. Can you have that in person. Search is another thing that ian rapoport brought up not going to be a traditional coaching search in the off season. If you're going to be able to get in person or you're gonna have to be zooming with those coaches there. But i saw that yesterday. I thought that was a little bit surprising. Grant in tennessee. Hey grant best and worst to the weekend. Good morning. Thank you for taking my call. Sure festival the weekend. The tennessee volunteers game getting postponed. So we delay another inevitable lawsuits. I thought this was your guys year you brought in all these recruits and there was momentum there grant and it is not materialized. It's not easy being a student here. I'll tell you that the best of the week are worst weekend. Excuse me having to live with the tennessee. Titans loss on thursday night. Talk defense is it's atrocious. Watching it a point. And we had a fedex deliveryman as punter and i. I don't even know anymore. Grant take the rest of the season off. Grandparent feels like he's already had a full schedule their full schedule. There are nine teams in the afc with a record of six and three or better and the way it looks now at least two of those teams will miss the playoffs unless the nfl adds that eighth playoff team in each conference at this moment. Cleveland in tennessee are not in playoff. Spots at six and three tennessee struggled cleveland. I'm going to give cleveland credit for the win against the texans in houston because that would be a game that the browns would lose. And you win those games. You got to win those games. Not pretty you win ten seven but you won the game. You're six and three. You have some momentum here. I don't know how good you are. It's nice to have nick chubb back but at six and three you'll take that pittsburgh's undefeated baltimore's a little bit wounded here. It's going to be tough to make the playoffs. Does it feels like one of those one of those three teams. Who's not gonna make the post season. Chris in south carolina. Hi chris. what's on your mind today dan. I m caller longtime listener. Five ten one ninety. I want to say thank you for rocking or fort mill. Fire department patch on your show about six weeks earlier this year. During a lot to the to the firefighters the weekend will must champ got fired Worse than the weekend is a lot and throwing his quick forward into the fans twice as they pass or seven hundred yards on us and my candidate is jamey chadwell for my College nor green while universities current coach at coastal carolina. What are your thoughts on him. Replacing wilma sam I don't know. But i love coastal carolina. The shanta clears. They're very very exciting. Team this year did you guys say lane kiffin where he knows. It's going to be a touchdown. Any throws clipboard. Up in the air it goes up thirty feet. It's got to go thirty feet to make the shot. Because he's on the near sideline dan where the bottom of the camera shot. It was so funny. Guys crews touchdown you see this white thing just poop. But he knows it's happening. He sees it happening in real time and he's running down the sidelines and then kiffin just throws clipboard up in the air. It looks like he was playing george or something. Yeah paulie if you watch the planes slow. Motion lane kevin has done before when he was. Oc at alabama as the quarterback is third step. Dropback lane puts his hands up to single touchdown. Like i know what's happening here. Then he starts running he throws it up. Then the headset goes off. He's fist-pumping cassidy in nevada. A cassidy dan Five six one twenty four and my bessemer city weekend. My best is my liberty. Flame western carolina and My worst is no ohio state football. But i guess as a constellation. I'll take another michigan law. Thank you cassidy. Well people in ohio or levin is love and at michigan state michigan. Not doing will kind of makes me smile for some reason. There's part of me like. I've felt sorry for jim harbaugh when i'm when they would show him on the sidelines. It felt like every five to seven minutes they'd show on the sidelines and ucb. After another wisconsin touchdown. But you're you're looking at him and he can be a great coach. He's been a great coach. He's been to the super bowl. he's turned around programs. I think we all thought that this was a homerun. You can go home again. And then if you don't have your quarterback it. It's it's really look at all these quarterbacks in college football right now they. All complete eighty percent of their passes touchdown to interception ratio. Feels like it's ten to one. You gotta find that guy and you gotta have skill position. Players michigan's always had skill position players except it quarterback they don't have first round draft picks and i did. I felt sorry for horrible. Because i mean we all have egos. We all have pride. You're there this is your own. The monitor your dad's with you lives next door. You know families there. You're back home. This is great. We're gonna we're gonna do it. We're going to beat. Oh you're like we can't beat anybody and you get humble. It's not like you're losing a close game. You're getting embarrassed. They got rutgers now. Normally you'd say well they're going to get a win. I don't know what's the line we have a line. On rutgers against michigan and is indiana a touchdown underdog against ohio state. Is that what it was. Three three touchdown. That's what i read. Cleveland dot com three touch. Maybe that was written before the indiana win this weekend. They look great against michigan state. I one thing even. If you don't like michigan you want harbaugh in college football. I think the casual or serious college football fans they want lane. Kiffin the sec. ohio state. Once jim harbaugh initially they don't want him gone. They'll they'll cover the buyout. There's certain characters you want in college football and you don't want it to go away like i don't want michigan. Don't get rid of him because he's interesting lane kiffin. Interesting steve. spurrier was fantastic. That these coaches mike leach. Being in the sec. It might not be pretty but it's entertaining. I don't know how long mike leach is going to stay there because it feels like member. They started out their story week. One yes and then all of a sudden you know he's questioning who's gonna stay who he wants to stay in tennessee. Tennessee was to our colleague of ready to ship. Now they're going. They're gonna lose out probably and all off season. We're hearing jeremy pruitt had done unbelievable job recruiting and then you thought okay. Are maybe tennessee's back here. Yes i say. Michigan nine point favorites over rutgers according to las vegas casinos circus sports. All right nine point nine points. I will take a break more phone calls than words to the weekend.

Now it's not breaking news in just opting out to make more money to stay with. Lakers lakers intend to acquire dennis shooter from oklahoma city thunder and he was really sought after he was runner up to six man of the year last season and he he's got one more year left on his contract but he's good. He's good he's good player. He's only twenty seven. That gives you a little bit of flexibility. If you lose rajon rondo or avery bradley or both in free agency you got a guy who can start for you and then have to make this trade with oklahoma city. But i think he would be Know great addition for the lakers. Their dennis duda yes and shooters averaging almost forty percent from three which is big. Yeah the other topic is certainly james. Harden has james harden going to be moved the espn dot com. Report that harden. I guess looking at the brooklyn nets as one of his possible trade destinations according to espn hardened been has been increasingly uneasy about the rockets ability to compete for an nba title. Isn't he part of the reason why they've been unable to and he's considering the possibility of pushing to play elsewhere before his contract expires. I guess you can't move russell westbrook but you can james harden but what are you get in return you got kessle avert he got spencer dinwiddie that but i don't know how many draft picks you got there that you can give to the ronca. Chance mclovin jared allen the center juicy news energy guy. Do we need to have james harden. If you have kyrie and kevin durant can count. Many is too many and everybody likes to shoot last. I looked those three liked to shoot. If i say to everybody. Everybody okay. Average in twenty two twenty two points a game. I'm pretty good with that now. Everybody might start out that way. But and harden was there with kevin durant so he. He's you know they know each other. But i don't know who if i'm houston. What am i getting here. If you said i could get charissa slivered and spencer dinwiddie or you say i could get ben simmons or joel embiid entertainment business. Your business is the key word there. The rockets aren't winning anything. If james stays or he goes. But what am i getting in return. And can i get something that's younger. Maybe we are a different team because what we did before is not going to work big picture. Great regular season team fund regular season team entertaining regular season team but deeply flawed. When they get to the postseason yeah mclovin. I'm not sure my nets are confident. They'll get a full season durant and irving. Maybe that's why because they've injury guys especially kyri. He's always going down. But if i'm going into this assuming everybody's healthy now you might have limited minutes for kyrie or kevin durant but are you. What kind of style are you playing. Here what what. What is the team. Because james's ball dominant kyrie can be ball. Katie needs his mid-range jumpers. But i i don't know it sounds interesting. It sounds like a mess. But i don't know feels like philadelphia would be a better spot better trade partner. With the rockets yes macleod. Are you recreating the sons of the nineties with shawn marion stoudamire nash. Nash is gonna with kyrie being nash. Yeah but they're not even close to that ego wise. Yeah i i rabi a little bit. Nash lake that role. Well he can ask nash to help him be like national since he's his head coach but you know shawn. Marion was not in star man. He was a great player. In that system mari stottlemyre. Meyer was a very good player. The you're talking about three huge egos here. Three huge stars here. This is different. Everybody bought into what phoenix was doing. Because nash nash was a pass first point guard and he had to be even told by. Mike d'antoni you need to shoot more shawn marian. Great in transition stratemeyer. He had benefited from having nash. There is his point guard. This is different. These are three. Huge egos. And i can pull it off. Be fun to watch. But i would think philadelphia would make more sense. If i'm philly. I'd rather bring in james harden and pair him with ben simmons send joel embiid houston and then see if i can make something happen there. 'cause i know ben simmons and not going to go. I'm not getting my touches. I'm not getting my shots joel bead. I'd be worried about that. That embiid would say. Hey you know what. I want to be average thirty points per game. Few more phone calls here. Eric and georgia i eric. What's on your mind today. Good morning. Dan thanks for the call. That's the worst weekend but Best is is the cowboys the lewis this weekend. The app and the worst is they still have a fighting chance. Well they're thinking you know. I'm looking at these numbers with the eagles. The eagles may win the division. And this is not hyperbole. The eagles may win the division. With five wins they may be five ten and one and win the nfc east and host playoff game. Then you're gonna have this outcry of you know if you win the division. You have to have a certain way you have to have a five hundred record or better. You people are going to try to troubleshoot this and you. Can you got to wait till the start of a season member. We had this with seattle when they beat the saints. They hosted a playoff game. They were seven and nine. You know people were outraged by nothing changed. I think you're going to get to a point where we have brackets. I think we're going to get that. I think you're gonna get winning percentage. I think you're going to get something. The nfl's toying with something. I can't get it firmed up. But i'm trying through a source to say that save. They could tell me. This is where we're headed with the playoffs with the nfl. They're going to be eight playoff teams in the afc and the nfc. And then you're gonna have you know. Winning percentage brackets. And i think the nfl's headed that way don't have it confirmed but it certainly feels like they're they've already floated it out there. If we have a game or games that are postponed or cancelled then they would add another playoff team in the afc and the nfc. They're already talking about that. They already added one for this year in both conferences. We're not that far away georgia ohio. Hi george what's on your mind. Good morning good morning Best and worst the weekend Best is The browns win an odd ending. But hey you you play to win the game yes you do yes you do. And the worst was okay. I'm watching the The bills and the cardinals. And it's under a minute and my wife says hey. The spacex launch is happening right now. Oh okay i'll check out a little bit and So i'm watching that okay. That that went fine i go back to the game in the cardinals will celebrate and i thought what the heck does happen here. That happened to me with the music city miracle. Because i'm down in the basement watching and then i got my wife is saying come on. You got four kids. They're all ready to eat. Come on go. And i said all right games. There's the other kicking off all right. I'll come up. I go upstairs and then i come back downstairs after dinner and i went. But what did the titans do what happened here. I'd missed a couple of those moments. Before i miss the oklahoma boise state finish in the fiesta bowl when he had the statue of liberty play yeah. There's that one apple you know you got to beat. The traffic. i was was was going to a sports bar to being a bunch of guys in college to watch the chris webber game the ncaa final game michigan versus North carolina and i parked haphazardly. My car was towed. When i left so i didn't actually miss it. I remember walking out after a great game. What a game. That was going to my car and it's gone so i got towed. Ncaa relocating the thousand twenty. one division. One men's basketball championship sites. Now rounds one in two or all over the place but are they trying to central centralize this. Yeah dan usually you know the first round. Being dayton and albuquerque in tacoma washington. That's not going to happen. According to the ncaa division twenty twenty one basketball as a result. According to the release the ncaa staff is in preliminary talks with the state of indiana and the city of apple annapolis to potentially host the entire sixty eight team tournament around the metropolitan area during the coordinator dates of march and april. That would mean the entire three week and say tournament would be in indianapolis indiana possibly in talks but it will not be west east north south east all that kind of stuff like the old days. Isn't there a college basketball tournament. That's going to be played up at one of the casinos in connecticut. Yeah i think we can. How how many teams are going to be in the bubble. Is that like mohegan sun. And you're gonna have thirty teams that are going to be in the bubble. They're playing college basketball and it starts relatively soon. I remember seeing just the headline. Have you guys seen anything on that. Just making it up india's a good Ncaa tournament town it. Is they do a great job. I do a great job. They did a great job with the super bowl. Because you're able to everything's downtown. You can walk to everything. I thought what they did with. The super bowl was great. Yes mclovin. I can't wait to see all those returning stars in the sport next year. Like that guy phil and then that guy tom. I might not know a player in the sport out. Yes on if early season tournament over thirty college. Basketball teams are expected play in the mohegan sun. Bubble that's incredible and that's next week. Your microphone always makes it better radio. I have to check on the exact date but they are this story back. In late october saying they were finalizing plans to host more than thirty basketball teams as it becomes modified bubble for several early season tournaments including two moved from new york can happen with a bunch of college. Kids that a casino for we can have. I would have been dead. Yeah so you're gonna have college. Thirty teams bubbled in connecticut at the casino. I'm guessing i will take a break last.

Wow now you're gonna laugh at the callers. I think they've done. A great job stepped up for the lack of guests. They we need to step up a barring an injury. Cuyler murray is locked to a new high for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season. The most coming into this season cam newton with fourteen. That was twenty. Eleven kyla murray already has ten. I know we love to do this every monday. Who's the mvp. I still look at russell wilson with what he's done although the last couple of weeks he's not look good at all and he forced a couple of throws yesterday. And you know you can't have red zone. Picks aaron rodgers is in there. Obviously patrick mahomes is in there. I know that if you wanna put murray in there that's great now fine at this point of the season go ahead. It just feels like this is a. I don't know it gives us something to talk about week to week. But you got guys. Who josh allen. I don't know if he's an mvp candidate. It felt like that was being forced upon us in the early going. He's he's a good quarterback talented quarterback. He surprised me. Kyla murray is a lot of fun to what if cuyler murray doesn't win the game yesterday. Then he's not an mvp candidate right. So because of the andre hopkins tyler murray is what one of the top three. Mvp candidate. If josh allen wins that game josh allen then higher than cuyler. Murray i mean. It's it's almost feels like it's play to play. It's week to week but you know we have these rankings. And i never remember doing this. I don't know when this happened where we needed to tell you who the mvp was. I know we do power rankings. And that's fine but it feels like week to week we got to have a referendum on. Who's the mvp apple. Social media post the mvp odds every monday and tuesday as you can get new bets on them so there are a lot more out there accessible right now the odds of this morning. Patrick mahomes is a favourite to win the mvp. Just a bit over us. Russell wilson than aaron rodgers than the next tier is kyla murray himself. Then it drops. Big time to josh. Allen tom brady ben roethlisberger. I would put rothlisberger up there a little bit higher. Because i'm talking about value now. Sometimes you know we vote and say the best player in this sport. Well that's not the case because if you said who's the best player in the sport aaron donald should be in the in the top three voting the last couple years. It's the best quarterback in the league but then most valuable. If if i put somebody else on kansas city or are they still a great team. Probably so if cuyler murray's not on arizona. What kind of team do you have. There know when you start to do that with interchangeable parts and then you're trying to say well who's more valuable to their team. They're they're more valuable players to a team. They're more players. Are there players that are more valuable league wise where you look at their the best their position. Patrick mahomes is the best at his position. Is that meaning that. He's the mvp this year but he already had his mvp. Lamar jackson got his mvp. Now we're looking for the new story with a new stories. Cuyler murray playoffs. I don't think he's going to be in the. Mvp conversation if they don't win the mvp. And if russell wilson seattle wins that division. And he's still putting up forty five touchdowns he's probably going to be the mvp because he hasn't been the mvp before or ben rothlisberger has not been the mvp before. I don't think he's received an mvp vote but you're talking about value coming back from surgery and the team is undefeated. I would have thought he would have been given a little bit more credit because of that. They're different team when he's there. You know when when mason rudolph is in the air duct devlin. It's a whole lot different. And there's value attached to that with ben. Maybe don't have the big numbers that gaudy numbers but value. He's he deserves to be in the top five in my opinion. Yelp oh aaron. Rodgers projected numbers fifth forty six hundred yards forty touchdowns five interception gibson. Virginia's back gibbs what's going on. Dan p I i just wanna get this out of the way mclovin. do you have anything stark. Say while i'm on the line. You're gonna wait till i hang up. Wait who's your college football team carolina. Okay and we give we give him. All carolina like all carolina's south carolina carolina. Nc stone had. Dan don't do that. No carolina is unc. mike. Okay i have. I have a best investor. Mhic love your out of the way. We're good buddy. I'll call you if there's a portico that needs some some litigation. Hey you're the mayhem. You're the man Fastest might tom and becoming the low tone african american. Nfl head coach He's from the seven five. Seven born in hampton Went to college. William and mary so to him he got a shout out from tony. Dungy over the weekend. And i wanna ask paulie About my heels actually Does he feel better or worse about same house. Chances of The heisman Finalists being that defense is giving up fifty points. A game Yeah paulie i think you're all in on carolina's quarterback aren't you. He's pretty tough thick. Do that too tall. He looks like a chase like a two point. Oh chase daniel which is a compliment. Oh it is bears. Vikings tonight ben pepper now. I can't even do that then. It feel like it's going to be twenty five to one thousand nine hundred just going to be crooked scores their kirke cutting tannin the ball off to dalvin cook. Mclovin remember that year. That adrian peterson ran for two thousand yards and carry the vikings a playoff. He won the mvp that year. Yeah any chance. Dalvin cook can do enough to get in that conversation. These quarterbacks have such gaudy numbers and the vikings aren't good now if you say well. He's carrying them into the playoffs. Okay maybe you know the days of a running back in the days of somebody other than the quarterback winning the mvp feel like. They're a long long gone. Jeremy in wisconsin. Hi jeremy morning dp. Thank you for taking my call. So i'm have to best okay weekend and i'm a i. I'm going to kind of flip. The script because i know i'm sure when you had nick faldo on earlier especially perhaps tigers ten on twelve would have been a worst but my first best is him following up that score with birdieing six. I'm sorry five of its next six holes to finish his master's. That's i think pretty strong and my second best is the packers locking up our boy. David t oury on an extension. That's pretty huge. Is well now. We just need titletown brewery or maybe hinterland assigned him for a long term deal to slam some of their brill. All right well thank you. Jeremy thank you. Yeah the packers. That was one of those. Who do the packers play next. Because it felt like they were going. Oh we got jacksonville. We got scrimmage jacksonville coming up on sunday and then we have a real game coming up the following weekend. Because i'm watching that game. And i'm going guys. Jacksonville doesn't know that they're not supposed to be competing with you. Yes mclovin co to indy for their next game. I don't know if you're looking ahead to that one. But it certainly felt like they were going. Ooh jacksonville should be able to finish this one up by around two fifteen all right. Let's go around the room. What we learned on the program and mclovin the final results of the poll question that you found the results shocking. An hour ago so last time it was like fifty point. Four three to forty nine point six three now. It's clean fifty fifty. Who do you want to see next year. Tastes of hiller. Jameis winston. Next year residency. Yeah i saw drew. Brees has a rib contusion and so. I don't know that feels like he should be able to ply teddy bridgewater no structural damage with his knee with his mri. According to chris mortensen. Todd would you to playing the broncos jets and bengals next to and dolphins could find himself nine three in the coming weeks. Mclovin sure seems like jameis. Winston is the backup quarterback in new orleans. Does seton o'connor nick faldo adding american whiskey to the repertoire paulie. I'm really glad. Nobody took me up my master's dustin johnson back the last eight years. There have been eight different. Mvp's in the nfl.

"So question how far would you go for a friend a ride to the airport. Half your sandwich. Donate a body part. I need a kidney transplant. Kidneys right any to don't love and guess who's getting a kidney dispute silicon valley's thomas middle ditch antoni winner. Emily ashford kidney buddy. Fb positive tonight. Eight thirty seven thirty central on. Cbs cbs. Tonight it's a brand new episode of the unicorn and so jazzed. I expected to be jazz. But i'm even more jazz than i thought i'd be. And that was we got this. We got this forest. What are you doing. Sorry inspiring anew unicorn tonight nine. Thirty eight thirty central on cbs. Good morning boomer. our. Yeah i'm doing great g and a little sad news ray perkins passed away. You know former new york giant coach now. If you know going back and looking at all the things that he had done he'd never had a winning season as a coach but he did lay the foundation for the giants he hired bill parcells bill belichick and romeo cornell on that step and then when he decided to go back to alabama and coaching become the athletic director at his alma mata. That's when george junk turned the bill parcells and said you're going to be the head coach and you know and then you go back and you look at bill parcells as career and yukon. I try to figure out. He coached everywhere. Sure i mean everywhere. I mean everywhere from hastings to army air force and everywhere in between i mean is a vanderbilt mean. I feel like we've talked about it. I've been talking about parcells every day. Now in relation to the giants and the jets. I mean he's just one of those guys it's always going to be a mercenary or yeah but he's also always going to be around because what he meant to both organizations he's always going to be a reference point. Well plus he's a jersey guy on the other the other aspect to the to realize like how all this stuff kind of manifest itself and what it all turns into in the legacy. All these guys leave like so perkins you know want to alabama had a little bit of a good run and ended up leaving there and going to tampa bay then had a bad run and then after tampa bay. I believe that sam white took over for him there. I think that's what happened But it's just amazing how all these people are tied together. And so ray perkins dies at the age of seventy nine and bill. Parcells a seventy nine the same age and the same time and Bill parcells Actually as i was reading about this. And i forgot all about us. He went to go work for a land development company in colorado and he bought season tickets to the broncos in this was like right around the time the giants and he said it was the worst day of or the i guess the worst year of his life and then decided to go work for the patriots as linebacker coach and then perkins finally said hey. Why don't you come work for us. Defense coordinator who want a life lesson. I want things are going bad boomer. You never know in that opportunities. I just don't. I mean it's fascinating when you look back on the history at all this stuff and especially the new york giants and quite frankly you know. Maybe the giants their next bill parcells. They talk about young guys that were taken over a franchise that hasn't been very good and and quite frankly you know when they ray perkins i think was the guy that drafted lawrence taylor and had him his first year as rookie year and then all of a sudden between ballot check and romeo cornell Who was a special teams by the way. Bella check with the linebackers coach You know maybe. I'm doing a little revisionist history. I'm not really sure. But i just think about how all that stuff on unfolded. You know in the early eighties. And how perkins decided to leave to go to alabama and maybe he was going to get fired anyway because he wasn't doing well but he assembled a hell of a coaching staff. It is sort of funny to think about how the giants may have their next version of bill. Parcells where joe judge's in his career now and then the jets are also looking for their version of bill parcells later in his career in the late nineties. Who that guy is going to be to bring them the credibility 'cause bill parcells obviously was a different person when he took over the giants and he was when he took over the jets. So it's just those parallels that are going on with the organizations right now and that name who brought successful places honestly not a super bowl championship to the jets but still. He brought them back to credibility in a championship game. That was a huge deal at the time after what they went through as we know. It's just the organisation sort of where they are in history right now. They both needed another bill parcells. Well remember bill. Parcells also went back and coach the cowboys because jerry jones needed. Sure you know Dose our credibility in reality and and he was the one that found Tony romo for that matter and then when you think about going to the miami dolphins in their front office again it's a credibility higher you know and it just kind of makes you wonder like what the jets are going to do. Do they need a credibility higher now. More than ever before orders or joe judge a big enough influence and and i just like a big enough person to be the guy in the building. Want to be the guy in the building. I'm assuming that he does but i. I don't know that. For a fact. But george george was a task nascar a gm a guy that brought the organization together guy that was put in there much like sandy alderson was put in for the mets. A few years back to get the team right so now the question for the jets. How do we get the team right. What what are we going to do. And i know if they ended up with the number one. Pick you know. Trevor lawrence would be the guy that will get the fan base back. The question is who is the coach that now also comes along with him that is going to be able to ignite the cells and the sponsorships and the excitement again around the jets. And what are the things that you talked about specifically being a big problem as to why the jets are where they are is the fact that mike mccaghren state and adam gays came in and they couldn't work together now. This is the only reason. I bring this up now because we've been over ten million times. That wasn't great is here. We are again with the general manager. Who's going to stay. You're going to be another head coach. That is coming in. We're talking about the credibility stall now. Someone needs to walk into the room and be the man but that if you take the names out of it and just speak. Generically isn't always great for the remaining gm because that guy usually has people he wants to be around. That guy has a lot ideas said. Hey look i've got this this this on my resume joe. Douglas just became a general manager by himself with this particular job. So whoever that person is if the jets are going to go the credibility we need someone who has done it before route like we talked about earlier in the week with bill cower you better make sure and dam sure that joe douglas and that guy on the same page. You don't repeat history again like you did. Where the mike maccagnan adam gates thing just completely blew up in everybody's face. It's amazing to me. When i when i really think back to all that decision making and how how it was put together you know. I always sat here and told you. I want a strong. Gm i want gm to be the guy that you know. Walk into that coaches office. Ask him questions about. Why isn't this guy. Play of what is going on with this guy and and be the boss of the operation. I what i want i. I've always wanted that. I've always felt like that is the most important thing and even like when i played in cincinnati. The general manager was the owner. Mike brown he and paul brown basically ran. The team selected the players selected to coach and they would watch film or tape. Whatever you wanna call it With the coach on monday morning and go over everything with everybody. Now it made the coaches uncomfortable because it was the owner slash general manager and. I'm sure that's exactly what jerry jones does down in dallas. But the the thing that i would say is that the johnson family didn't grow up in football. You know that you could say whatever you want about these. The following owners. The rooney's brown's the mccaskey's the mara's try to thank the. Yes the hunt family. Even the the arizona cardinals the these people. This has been their lives. The they've been in football the business of football you know since they were kids generations generations generations and generations so they they kind of get sport. They understand the sport. They've been around the sport. You can't say that. About the johnson family. Especially when woody decides to become the ambassador of great britain and then he leaves an lease it for christopher. Never been in this thing before sure so it was a messy hiring. It was an arranged marriage that might mcalinden brought in greg williams and then they decided to go with adam gates because he because christopher's smitten by him. And you know he says. I'll accept greg williams. That's fine he can handle the defense. I'll handle the quarterback in the offense. You know you can't have siloed head coaches like that or coaches like that. Like co like co head coaches. It doesn't work so you got to have a strong guy that has a hand at the top of the organization. In this case it would be joe douglas. And then he if he wants to make her credibility our lack of bill cower. I'm sure they need to sit down and talk over things to see whether or not they they aligned with how they see football being played and especially in this new age of football and all that us up or if it's somebody that has he's worked with somewhere else before whether it be wink martindale. Who's the defense coordinator of the of the The ravens but the thing is. I don't want wink martindale coming in here and coined the defense i want. I want the next head coach to coach. Yeah but that's the thing that scares me though is when you have built like let's just throwing hypotheticals out so i understand i'm really. I'm reaching here but just let's let's talk about this scenario. You mentioned about a bill. Cowering joe douglas sit down and they're aligned on football all right. Let's say they bill. Cowher says hey. Sounds like the money's to be there. Sounds like we got trevor lawrence. Now all i have to do is sit down and see if joe douglas and i agree on the direction of the organization. And what if they don't then. What do you do as the owner jack. You're gonna let him walk out the door. Why that's a whole nother set. So that's what i'm saying. This is why here we are again. Like the point. One adam gays failing at the level that he failed as a head. Coach of the jet really screwed up their plans. Because once they fired mike maccagnan in joe dulles part of the reason why they brought in joe. Douglas was then adam gates and joe douglas and previous relationship and they thought that these two guys would be coasting together the next couple of years coasting but working together the next couple of years. That's why adam gates with so desperate. We heard stories about him. Like freaking out when the contract negotiations were going on with joe. Douglas he wanted to get done so much because he knew the guy they aligned on football and he thought that his job would be safe if he was here. And now that's completely blown up. But you know how i i often say. I have often said over the last three to six weeks that they basically screwed up sam darnold and and the reason they screwed up sam darnold of the way that this whole thing went down. And how this whole hiring. And mismatch of greg williams and adam gays basically see adam gays the way i see it if there is a stereotypical coach in the nfl. He's one who's and not just them. It's all coaches unless the name is bill ballot. Check john harbaugh. Andy reid Most coaches are going to be really insecure about where their next job is always looking over. The all right always knows the best way of doing things and is going to be very very steady as ways. And he's going to joe judge is trying to do here with the firing the offensive line coach at dealing with golden tate. And all that other stuff so he was so worried about not getting another shot at a job that he took the jet job under the guise that greg williams is going to be as defense coordinator and that greg was going to handle the defense mike. Macaque news going to be the general manager. Let's not i think i think. Christopher johnson saw the mismatch and personalities between mccaghren and gays. i don't think mccarron wanna gaze. Of course nobody knew that there was at some point. A dagger was gonna be in your back soon. So if it didn't work for sam darnold. It certainly wasn't going to work for adam gaze. You can't expect a coach to be able to coach a team that is fractured like this. And that's why it is important for me from where i sit to see that joe judge gets the right guy you know he knows the nfl. You've hired him to be your general manager. Douglas douglas. You've hardened to be your general manager. Let him do his job. But just as built up bill. Belichick says all the time. Just do your job. Just do what you're supposed to do. And let joe douglas and all the experience that he has had three different organizations all the people he knows in the league let him go through the process obviously the ownership has to be involved in it depending on how big the check is going to be but i just i personally would let him do it and let him be the guy so he hires the right guy so there is some synergy in the building and then the head coach is able to hire his staff. Sure and youth kind of threw a monkey wrench into this whole thing on monday when we talked about bill cower because in any normal situation that you're talking about joe douglas and higher and the coach. I agree with you because that's the way it needs to be. That's the structure that is going to work but does joe. Douglas want that type of personality. I'm just telling you. First of all bill did tell me on. Sunday loves joe douglas. Okay so they probably do see it very similar in coward and with mci becton over their left tackle men. You got the foundation of something. That's going to be pretty special offensive line. You don't think. Joe doug is going to be scared off by a hall of fame coach walking in now all of a sudden. It's team because i don't think i look again. I can't. I can't speak for all these guys. Because i don't know all the particulars all the their mindset and all that other so i don't think i think coach cower or any coach of that ilk would probably want to collaborate with a guy like joe douglas in. Let's say how do we see the. I know how coach sees the game. Sure he sees the game offensive line. Defensive line running game okay okay. Yeah those are like those are joan. Douglas things are the tenants of football right. Especially when you play outside in the northeast and this time of year. Look what you got out there now. I can also imagine again. I don't want to speak for him. But i could. Just imagine. Coach cower watching the steelers. Throw the ball fifty three times dry drives him nuts. Come on man. This is not steeler fulbright. Not who we are. We've lost our way. We need to throw the ball forty times and running an extra thirteen times or we need for the ball thirty five times and run the ball an extra eighteen times. Whatever it is. But i just tenants to you know you got to run the football and you have to look at by the way so after joe. Judge fires his offensive line coach. Now of a sudden we got seven offensive linemen rotating implying which is great and all of a sudden run the ball effectively. This this is the this is the recipe to win. Yeah one more question that i know. You haven't asked bill coward directly but it's very interesting to me if you have any sort of knowledge like one of those guys that you see you read in the articles. A person familiar with bill cowers thinking but all right dole cower seemed to be interested in. You know likes joe douglas. His wife is a jets fan. He loves being in new york. All of we about the jets right so all of those things. Great so he would sort of. It seemed like we were alluding to eat sort of think about that job but has he now crossed that line into thinking about other jobs to. Oh i don't know about the. I don't think science i can't say that let me because couldn't you see him. Coaching the bears all he would be great on the berislav. I've said a thousand nine so up there in the scores. Nagy dowels you. The bears wouldn't pay what it would take. I think and the jets will i. You know it depends. It depends on how far the jets feel like they've fallen so when leon has realized that he made a major mistake and he needed to fix that mistake. Yeah what did he do. When got bill parcell and it didn't matter what the cost was and it didn't matter what the you know the fact that they had a trade forum and all that other. It didn't matter the guy in here. That i know that it's gonna come to work here. And immediately re establish some credibility my franchise sorta like me with my garage doors this summer where i had the one garage door that was functional. The other one wasn't working right and the guy came in and he said hey you know i could fix the one garage door for cheap. But i don't know how long it's gonna last or it could give you two beautiful garage doors for this cost and i said screwing gimme the two new beautiful garage doors at the highest price. Because i don't wanna be dealing with this because this fricken garage doors driving me crazy. It's the same thing as a homeowner. You're confronted with these opportunities and sometimes you could slap some duct tape on it or sometimes you can go out there and go top dollar say. I'm not dealing with this anymore. Which is what the jets the what you do is you bring in the business side right. And they've held and you tell the business generations of fan. You're kind of thing side. You tell the business side okay. Here's here here. Are candidates here. The people are going to look at here. The people are going to talk about. What do you think in terms of selling this person selling the combination of the quarterback. This person as the head coach. What what kind of number do you think that we could create. So let's just let's use an arbitrary number of twenty million per year for head coach which is a lot of money. But that's bill belichick and sean payton andy. Reid and mike tomlin is guys are like. They stood on the sideline. the fancy. Those guys like tomlin's making twenty million but he's making more than ten. I can tell you that. But what i'm saying to you. Is that when you see. Those guys on the sideline as a fan. You feel good. You feel good that your team is in good hands. Just like when parcells was that new england when he was at the giants when he was at dallas when he was at the jets immediately when you see him on the sideline. You're like damn got a guide that knows what the hell's going on out there. And he's a tough guy and our team is going to be tough so now you ask the business guys. Can you sell that. The business guys will probably go crazy. They probably would tell you. You know what we could probably increase our ourselves. Fifteen to twenty percent. If we hire this guy as a head coach now you got to go back and you've got to look at how much you're gonna pay him and how much you think you're going to raise or sell after you hire him. And then you gotta balance that number and you gotta to think about overall credibility and having that guy standing on your sideline whoever that guy is boomer and geo on the fan and cbs sports network just getting started on this thursday morning. We got jerry recco back today. We'll get one as updates coming up in just a couple of minutes and plenty more. Us cbs tonight. It's a brand new episode of the unicorn. Who so jazzed. i mean.

Recco is back with us. Lot of rutgers for jerry. That's why we missed him. Yesterday i talked to jerry. I thought maybe he would have a little bit of a down opinion about college basketball because everybody else does. It seems like jay bilas in coach k. And people are just we gotta stop. Can't play college basketball. And we gotta take a pause for a couple of months. Because it's too much jerry said. No he's kids wanna play and jerry was all positive about it. Made me feel more positive about it. Because after hearing those guys i was thinking. There's no way they're going to finish college basketball season again. And we're not gonna have a tournament again in all the negative stuff. That was out there. But jerry you totally differently than some of those opinions i do. I see when the games are being played. The kids are into it the game you know. It's funny at the rackets weird because it holds eight thousand people and again the fact that you can't put anybody in there is weird to me but whatever But during the game. I think they're doing a great job with you. Know the ambient noise. There is some sort of a sense of a crowd. even though there's not it feels normal during the game. What's weird is halftime pre game and post game but during the game it to me. It seems normal and i. It sounds crazy to say that. But it doesn't you kind of into the flow of the game. The energy of the game is really good. So i understand it's jerry. All these kids want to play. I know they do you know. Nobody's telling him or forcing any of these kids. They all wanna play just like all the nfl players. You know the ones that didn't wanna play the out that out right these guys. That are playing now. They want they wanna play. They wanna earn their money. I don't know what to tell you. You know the big ten in the pack. Twelve in terms of their football programs screwed everything up because of their wishy washiness and how they ended up getting backed into a corner and they ended up doing what they did and they got half a season is so stupid. They should've started when everybody started back in august and that goes for new york state high school sports. The fall sports should have been played. Knowing that would dr fauci and dr burbs and president trump. We're all talking about a second wave in late november. Because everybody's gonna be inside. It's the natural thing that's going to happen. And we're all going to be wet ready for it. They all should have played a truncated season starting august and play through october. And you probably could have had maybe seven. Football games played for high school sports in the state of new york and again. It's just everything is so ass backwards here. When things could've been done and a little bit of normalcy could have returned and then get ready for the second wave could have been penis forwards. Yeah i would've. If i'm i don't know if i would tell the. Uft look man. We're going to go all the way 'til thanksgiving yeah and we're going to go then we're gonna go remote after thanksgiving and then once january gets here and we have vaccinations and all that us up. We're coming back to school. We're going all in that. You know that could have been the easiest most practical way to handle it. Yeah the big you have to have. Six games played to make it to the big ten championship game in football. I'll wait a second. I mean but they like screw up. The high stakes only got five along. We'll change that rule. I care about is giving them a shot to win a championship. Everybody keeps saying listen to doctor. Thought you listen. Listen our we listen. He told us and they told us that. The second wave was gonna come in november. And here it is. That didn't mean august every the numbers were down. Everybody was you know. Good times back then at all times right now i can tell you that was really. She's just the the amount of wrong decisions that have been made is mind. Boggling mind boggling. Hopefully college basketball continues it will. Yeah i also another thing. They were saying about college basketball. And they couldn't be bubbles during the regular season and now there's bubbles regular season that you're trying to do and then they're going to try to build a bubble four tournament but here's the thing with college basketball. You're kind of entering that anyway. Because even if kids were on campus they'd be gone now for the holidays and usually they wouldn't be back until the end of january so you're kind of in one without being in one sure defacto boggled. Jerry's all right. Let's get an update here. See what else is going on. What are you got fourth. We're brought to you by winters. Brothers waste system's long island's number one choice for all your waste collection. Recycling needs visit winters b. r. o. s. dot com week. Fourteen in the nfl tonight opens up in l. a. between the patriots and the rams course. The patriots beat the chargers by a whopping forty. Five points this past weekend with cam. Newton throwing for a whopping sixty nine yards. We'll see if that's any better tonight. We will have that for you right here on the fan's sunday. We'll also have for you on the fan. The giants and cardinals. Here's joe judge the status daniel jones. We're optimistic. I know he's gonna tell us everything we wanna here. We've got again. Use our eyes and said here's daniel jones absolutely wants to be on the always wanna play and and You know i'll Continue to to communicate that. I think You know my my goal is to is to play every week. We'll see if he can be on the field on sunday. The nfl did flex the giants and browns next week into sunday night. Football kicking the niners and the cowboys down to one pm. How about that yet screwed you. I sure did yeah. It sure is cowboys suck. Yeah they're not good. I i understand have run. Defense is brutal flag football there jerry. It's it's great. I don't know what to tell. You is terribly hundred. Mike mccarthy though. We should've went to the jets. I couldn't have been any worse though. I'm just kidding guys top. Well now top of everybody's list but two of the guys who that hiring cycle just haven't been great. Is it mike mccarthy. Here's a mike nolan. Who knows right exactly Former giants could even your higher friends. Well mike mccoy come on. Mike mccarthy was a good coach. green bay you're saying. No boy hired his buddy mike now in that way i thought you meant in terms of higher but i like this. I mean that's the thing i coach does that. It's just the one big gain. Why because it's one fraternity. Yeah i mean. There's only so many people that are available to coach. Incestuous if you will terrible is what isn't it. Yeah jets seattle rookie wide receiver. Denzel mims dealing with a personal issue. Not sure if he will play or not The team though still dealing with the Well the horrible ending to sunday here was adam gates with the media star my whole career. I heard that for seven straight years was twenty four hours to get over it I think the only time. I been involved in a loss like this was danda playoff game so i can be pissed as long as i wanted to and nobody would dare. Yeah well still annoyed as you can imagine. Connor mcgovern very honest. The jets center talking about the comments. Marcus maye made after the game. He says quite impressive really hurt by the way that ended up sunday night. So it's really really cool to see him step up and take one because They would ask. I don't know if i would have been able to media sunday night. So so good for him. Really good really good in philadelphia. You guys obviously aware of the quarterback change hurts and so yesterday you had the players. Doug peterson meet the media. Jason kelsey I imagine a big wins defer supporter. He's the eagle center. He now. I wanna play the clip because my eyes were wide open when i heard it and then i'll play you the rest because not as bad as it first sounds. He was asked if he feels and also take note of the gum chewing in the middle of it Do you sense feel a sense of responsibility that carson wentz is taking the fall for an offense that has not been very productive. This was the first part of the answer. I don't know if responsibility is the right. Where there's you know you don't feel bad. Carson is unfortunately not played well so these are the situations that happen. I'm sitting there looking at like. Oh my god he's like killing carson wentz but then he goes on and continue. He's the sole one taken the hit right now. Obviously the entire offense has been terrible and then he would go on to say that they all share in the blame but that first comment as he's gone on the yeah responsibility not only played with his dad. Yesterday must have been center day. Yeah all this has got pushed out you guys. Go talk to the media. Everybody seems like you guys and really don't they don't know what you guys do so just go out there and talk them certainly very possible. And then i'll give you once. We did talk about the cowboys. I give you one from jerry jones. This was prior to the game in baltimore. Now jones i believe is seventy eight or nine. He was asked to be still gets fired up for game day. And he put it this way pitcher the dracula laying in his casket and the list flying open and neighbors. Straight up at picture dracula. Frankenstein gets with the bolts in his neck and going after people trying to figure out created him. I put him in this horrible life. That's sort of what. I'm lacking on game day for like a wearable. He's a lot of fun. Reports say rockets james harden will have to have six consecutive negative covid nineteen tests before the nba will clear him to practice trade in the brooklyn want his team. I don't know here was. Kevin durant asked about james harden. I don't think about james harden at all. i mean. He doesn't plan our team. That's exactly right. I would you know if you're a net player on that team and this nonsense out there you know. How do you focus on my are. Are they feeding me. A line crap or are they. I don't think it's going to happen. Is steve nash. Put into an just a ridiculous situation. I net player right now. It doesn't feel as real. It doesn't seem like the rockets are gonna cave. It doesn't feel like the nets are going to give up as much as they need to get them. I don't know i wouldn't be worried right now. I would have been worried when he first demanded a trade but the fact is gone on. This long makes me feel like i'm good. We're going to go to work with this team. I kind of like what nash did. Say in that. Regard this dinwiddie yeah. I'm heavy voting towards not trading spencer. And i think the front office feels the same way. And then he went on to say why. You just not gonna get someone back as good as spencer as at this point for what you're giving up so good for him. He was the coach yesterday when coach irving have to say well he's going to release a statement Perhaps one day weekend before they plan. Just try doesn't jack correct that you gotta hate that though jerry. I know you're a net pillar. You don't hate the kyrie irving and play. Just go out and play but everybody else. Who's like to sit there and answer questions. Like why does he what he desires have of the got to answer about. What do you mean well not everybody not. Everybody does that mean who else. And that's the new thing in in the world like you know you don't have to talk to the media more while i'm talking about sports and local sports lebron james thing like if you wanted to hear from you the gene kevin durant got to sit there and answer questions about james harden. Nocco doesn't have to answer questions about james harden harry's take on lebron james lebron james's take on curry and kevin stake. I don't know three things that we'd like to ask corey and like no one's going on in its narrative we're not creating a narrative are we. I would just have resentment rant. And i have that sit there and answer all these questions about all this stuff. That's going on and kyrie gets to send out an email not for nothing. He got forty million dollars to not talk show win answering questions. How much of how much i replay pin gay. I replayed he got hurt but he did go out and play and had the could wasn't he able to play in the bubble and decided not to play. And i believe that is the case. Yes and he wanted to start his own league and his own and then everything else didn't go right right exactly. He's not going anywhere. You'll be in brooklyn The nba does open up tomorrow by the way the knicks play in detroit. We haven't seen them since march so that'd be the first thing actually agree also of note. The nba tested daily just like players and coaches. Try to keep them healthy and safe as well. Do you care about the all. Mlb team announced last night. Jacob degrom made the i team agile and only second one j lemay. You're going to put on a met. Uniform never You also had luke void talking about la- mayhew told the moose. And i'm not gonna play the quite felt so bad for moose when you got question yesterday. Why do that all the time. So i actually. I have not done that a long time. But you do ask a question. I you know what i don't know i'm not gonna go there. Why won't because you did it twice yesterday. S four yeah. Why feel like ceelo is tipped off by the booms. I did here. I did hear one of those questions. I know you did. I almost fell asleep at. I know so anyway. But he did tell him that. Dj wants to be a yankee. So we'll see if the your voice. Tj wanting to be yankee because he may take your job well being. I think you're hoping he plays second base right back things on the first baseman. Well i don't know you know you might have to start moving the yankees. They're worried about spending too much money. Now luke void carried that offense along with dj for a long stretch last year. I wrote luke voight last year for two months. It was fantastic. Did you hear evan. Talk about talking. And looking last night someone sent me. I was looking forward on radio. Dot com rewind. I couldn't find exactly where it was. Oh i know exactly what time. What was i gonna for. Yeah please do Because someone tweeted me. And then i was looking forward because the win. The person tweeted me. I guess they were listening as well. So i couldn't find the damn thing and they're on for five hours those guys so i couldn't find it but it's if it's anything it's not as good as you're thinking right because craig had pull it out of him. He didn't necessarily volunteer it that after he watched silence of the lambs that he talked and looked at himself in a mirror. Yeah he what. He talked himself in a mirror and pretend that he was a woman. Oh he mailed tucked right not matching with red hair and all come on maybe wax. That's not fair. no. I've got a very vivid imagination. I've got that image. By the way. I i saw amy lawrence more said. Are you gonna fight. Maggie and the undercored said she goes. Why because i'm a girl i said. Well i don't know we just thought that would be a decent match up. I mean you could fight. Peter schwartz if you know. She said she'd fight. You really would. Yes i actually thought of a better opponent. Four maggie okay. Karen stewart all. Wow man karen steward with with the enraged traffic situation. That's not fair to anybody. Putting karen stewart in the ring like all you have to do is just show or like a live shot of the belt parkway. She's walking into the ring whatever's in there at this all right jerry that it all right very good morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo. I know that you're not all that and talk and everything but you know. Espn news thing. They put up there the realigned divisions potentially and i don't think anything's official yet but In the east they had seven teams in the east. I'm like you can't accept it. you gotta have eighteen. Where's the team the team and they forgot the fly on. It's great so all the teams are listed except for the flyers. I love that perfect set up to the cage l. yes. I think someone had to be a graphics guy who was either a ranger fan or probably a ranger fan. Maybe a penguin fan. They hate the fly like a penguin fan or a ranger fan would kick out of it. No it's great. I know you tweet tonight. Yeah it was It was great. So i told you january thirteenth fifty six games. And they're going to realign their divisions. I'll have a canadian division in east central and west division and you know this east division for hockey fans like me. Roy's this division is going to be tough man. Because boston will this. Division in carolina in washington will be in the division in columbus and pittsburgh will go to the central much. What you want right. You want the toughest of the tough walks. I don't know about. They don't want the easy way out. You're not an easy way out. Guide on not but i will say this. Whatever rivalries there are. they're going to be intense. Look the rangers devils the rangers and the islanders rangers and the flyers. I mean these teams hate each other so everybody hates the rangers. I don't know why i was such a nice group of people. We have nice uniform. Nice place play. We have good history fan. We're not a bunch of thugs like the frequent flyer. It's the fans really. I think is the reason why people are turned off by the rangers. So we're gonna play a couple of these things throughout the show. But i wanted to play the first one now. Because it's just it's funny so yesterday we were talking about steve somers and i don't even know how it came up but talking about how steve he'll say a lot of really nice things to your face but maybe not so much behind your back. Well it's and it's over the top. It's really over the top. So i told a story about how i saw this in action with fran healy and how he saw fran healy in an elevator. And there's just tongue bathed them in the elevator and then when the doors close and frayne healy got off the elevator. He just rip rant healy so a caller last night steve show called up on paneled and well i guess but it is on the air you know ten. Yeah well anyway he did. He did end up telling her asking steve about this interaction and he brought up friend healy. He said how in an elevator you saw him and complimented him and said oh. You're great you're great broadcaster. All this how many got off the elevator you were like fran healy wonderful guy. Terrible broadcaster i saw at least the admitted steve. All right always the worst steve now at this point in his career not hiding it anymore. Right he's capable of absolutely anything. you know. What i did is when you told me about that story with fran healy. I was thinking about my own. Interactions with steve. Sure and now. I'm thinking and i realized and i think back to how just over the top yet is over the top. Even maggie quote tweeted. The video of the story that we posted on our twitter account. Said wait a second. I'm not the best talk. Show host that the fan because he does this with. Everybody does now our all onto them. So there's one will play a little bit later in the show where he is just totally miffed as to how al dukes got his hands on the jerry seinfeld story so al told the story about how steve an email jerry and asked for larry. David's email and jerry responded back something along the lines of. That's not what friends do friends. Don't ask other people for emails which is ridiculous phone number statements. I mean that's what friends do but anyway well no. I mean i think jerry was saying. Look if i'm a friend of larry david's it's not really right for me to give his contact info to somebody else. That larry david may not want to have it. Okay but larry. I totally get the i say larry. David's been on with steve before he trust. Stephen likes steve so like come on. Well yeah. I mean that. That is part of the story. That doesn't get told yes. And i understand why al would think that would be very interesting and i. I honestly have no idea where. I would've heard that from who like i'm trying to think now. Who would have told me. I know the answer you do. I do know the answer. Yeah i'm not gonna say the answer. You got to be doing that. I don't know. I can't because then that and also i'm not putting tire tracks and that guy's back. I'm not doing it. But i do know the answer. I found out the answer this morning. But what what. Why are there tire tracks on the on. The guys steve's not going to like the fact that that information was shared. now. I'm not saying it's i'm just telling you that i'm not telling you and i'm not even gonna react. I'm not gonna react this morning. There's one guy here that was here this morning that that's not true. That's not true there's phones there's tweet there's emails there's all sorts of stuff. I could open up an email this morning and someone told me out. That's adducing right there. I'll that is. That's the very investigative deducing. Right daybreak. could job well. I don't think you're right so we'll just leave it. There are many many of people have worked with. Steve was the one that told them. Hey steve nine hundred eighty. We weren't even in existence fleas. I mean i. I mean i'm talking about somebody around here. At least a straight with people well fleets was trying to have his back and tried to tell him and his ear that you have that audio now. Now that we're talking about. There's steve do you have. You probably. don't see low hata yesterday. did he give it to you. Did you all right but at least like flags maybe small in stature but big and heart and toughness sure. They'll give it to you straight right. He he will. But i'm not saying it was fliegelman. Who told al about jerry story. I'm not saying just. And i don't recall that i do not recall fliegelman telling you that so there you go somebody told you yeah suming. It's fliegelman it's not now this whole thing that i this was another thing that i wasn't going to bring up so i guess someone cold and i don't know if video finding i'll just tell the story anyway so dancing around. Someone called steve asking about where he was. When john lennon was shot and steve goes online. Was here the radio station Watching howard cosell so the caller goes. Oh yeah and they moved on. And then steve said it again. It goes on we own. Never forget being here and wfan and then all of a sudden steve gets stopped in its tracks because fleet trying to talk to him off the air and it's headset trying to help them out and do two things at one time. You know if. I say something that's wrong or not factual eddie. You'll say i'm sorry but you're wrong about that. He was nineteen ninety three years and he was. So it'll tell me. And then i'll say i'll fix it and i'll correct myself. So that's what fliegelman is trying to do with with stephen. This whole nine hundred. Eighty know so steve. Instead of going you know hearing in correcting them so it goes what home just saying on the air. Whatever you're trying to tell me just saying on the air then fliegelman pop song. He goes. yeah you said. You're at the radio station. When john lennon was shot that was one thousand. Nine hundred eighty. That's seven years before wfan launch. Gotta love fliegelman stevens. Oh okay well. I was somewhere watching hotel. So that's the thing we're talking. Yes but that's just because that interaction happened doesn't mean that fliegelman was the one who shared the jerry seinfeld story without all right. Let's all right okay. All right so anyway we will find was find more of that audio to play in a little bit in. Apparently he elaborated on that. Whole jerry seinfeld email confirm the story and then even winning to detail about it and like talked about how he felt about it. How we disagreed with it. Sorta i was told trashed jerry sequester. And you're you're running around bellport. Some guy comes up to you and say can you give me boomers Impo what are you going to. How are you comparing some guy. In bellport to steve somers and jerry seinfeld who've had a relationship for a while they trust one another. Jerry came into the studio to do like an hour. With steve steve. Also had larry david the program before he changed his email and he was asking for his. It's not the same thing and jerry seinfeld once called up chernoff in yelled that when when there was rumors that steve would not be on the radio station or be have hours cut or something that i do remember that so this is what would be the equivalent. Okay so i happen to see one of someone. You introduced me to all the time in the summer. Okay captain david. Yes i see him all the time he runs. The ferries fire island ferries. I see him at davis park. I see them all. The time just happened to run into marin the same circles right all look at the. Jt's on the bay restaurant. Captives guys drink over to captain dave and deb. Your of captain. Dave came up to me and said hey. I lost boomers number. Can you give me boomers number. I would say yes but it's just some schlub. Walking around town goes. Hey i'm big fan. Can you give cell phone number. Of course i'm not doing it. All right depends who it is. Right right i get it i get it but yeah so basically this little dushi then by i think seinfeld i mean we all in agreement here. That's a little dushi. It seems like there's like a little triangle of of faith and trust there with those three guys. Yeah so then. If there is and that's kind of feeling that we do get. I mean it's only right to be able to give them the contact one right exactly and it's not like larry. David's email is something that's a readily available so he had to go and ask them. And what would steve have them on for to promote was to promote curb. And i know it helps steve out more than helps larry david but it's not like hey. Gimme larry david's email. So i can have a on so we can trash you for an hour cherry. It's like we're helping each other out just a cool thing cool thing. Want to help steve that you give them email. Monteray did fight for steve here he did but this is a different story coal thing that was a very cool thing though she right so you can have both those things on. Everybody has great moments. I hear you. That's a fact. Been credit card purchases. Give me cash back skinny fat. No one else gets these rewards through what intern nation sir.

Fed injured by seaway keeps the morning show with boomer esiason and greg leonardi boomerang and geo he major league. Baseball off season has become the most annoying of all officers in pro sports that we talk about meaning football. Nba nhl. Well we haven't really talked about the nfl so that can't be annoying if you don't talk about something the mba's annoying simply because the players tend to be annoying on the air for an hour and ten minutes and you talked about any job division realignment. Yeah just that was just tell me about. Nhl the flyers ran the and this and that well. That's yeah but that's all we've really okay as far as this whole baseball pink concerns because they don't really have winter meeting is all virtual stuff. Well yeah but you know what they. The signings usually. Don't come until around christmas now a couple years ago if you remember they held off on the signings because everybody's trying to hold the salaries down and collusion. That everybody right but then all of a sudden he came back last year and all that other stuff harper and machado that year. That the waited and even jd martinez in that happened late but those guys got paid a ton of money right so this maybe is what is happening now. Maybe maybe people are taking look at you know what their numbers were from last year. How much money they lost from the gate and the tickets and all that other stuff and there's really only one team that has money and it's hard team. The dodgers have money. They have plenty of money but know. We have a lot of money now. So we're the big players. We're the big shots on the on the block. Now we need to start spending it now. We will and we'll get some stuff around christmas. You know get a nice little. Christmas present from steven. Cohen man may be spending some money employers. It just feels like nfl free agency. There's a lot of stuff that happens before you have that right. It starts avalanche. Got the tampering period. Everything else and it just happens it. Boom this guy's here bottleneck zehr boom boom. It just happens if you've got a bunch of stuff every day. I mean there's sometimes that you can't even keep up you know in the nba. It's similar and you'll have these big names and there's intrigue and you got these superstars that could change in organization. No baseball is turned into this long. Slog of an off season where it's like every day something changes for example. You know yesterday it was. It seemed like it was a done deal james mccain was going to be the mets catcher everywhere every baseball insider. It's close it's not done but it's called momentum's building things get hot between james mccann and the mets can't confirm but in deep talks. Like we talk about this all the time with the baseball writers. Always have these things where they say in some but they're not saying something and then they never confirm it and it becomes manning all right so that's what it was early in the afternoon and like sorta like right after our show and then as time went on i see john hayman tweets and others at will the angels are involved and he to high school out there and now they're involved. You know maybe the mets turned to real mode. It's just like every day just someone why not pay attack because we have to. Because it's the mets and steve cohen's first off season and this is me getting guys that have no idea what's going on affect the way that i see how this thing on volt. I just wanna see the finished product. I just want to see the guys that are signing the contracts. I every one of these guys. All love steve cohen. They loved the direction to mexico and forever may may even said he wanted to be a part of the buzz right exactly so i just i think steve cohen actually feels the same way about the baseball coverage of offseason as we do because he's searching after fake news stuff. He does that on twitter and he even said a joke. The buster only the other day when buster said something tweeted something out about the mets. Yeah keep me updated foster like something like that. So it's just it's tough because you don't know what to believe. The thing is though we know the answer in regards to one of the things. That steve cohen said. Fake news about. Okay steve steve cohen by saying fake news created fake news himself. Which one was that. now. I'm lost here a little bit. We can't really talk about it here. Fake news set right. So i don't know i'm i'm lost now. Yeah i know. And i hate to do this to our audience but you know. Due to unforeseen events that could be created after the fact. It's just not worth the discussion. Okay but i'm just saying to you that i know for a fact that mr fake news tweet himself is mr fake news Okay very interesting. You're going to have to refresh me on this one. Because i don't remember what in the hell. Oh that's right. You know what now i got it. Thank you see what boomer did was he Did the mouth thing. I did a lip reading situation. Now i know what he's talking about. And i also apologize to the audience because we can't talk about right. You are right about that right. So mr mr. I'm going to tweet at the fans. And i'm going to make fun of the news media and all this mr fake news. He's mr fake news. There is something that he tweeted out that we heard from somebody else. That was true in steep coincided was not that is. That's basically all you need to know around something. I know but i can't drive so at that moment when i saw that tweet that he tweeted in regards to what we know as the real anger. Don't take them seriously on twitter. Any hell no yes. Just get freaking guy sign and get them in here and let's go. You're you've told us all that you're not in it to make money. We're not talking about budgets. The that's for the yankees now. The yankees could talk about budgets. We're not talking about budgets. it's your money spend it. Let's go steve cohen tweets like. He has been in a situation for many years where everybody laughs at everything he says because he's a billionaire so you know how certain people you're either if like comedians when they're out places socially and they try just to be normal. People just laugh at everything they say. Because it's like you've made me laugh before and everything you say is funny. I'm going to let the other person that deals with. That is someone who's got a lot of power and a lot of people under roman could make somebody rich like that steve cohen. So the way the he tweets is you can tell. He's been subject to many years of people laughing at jokes. That aren't funny and that was my take yesterday talking a lot of bad jokes on on twitter. Yes absolutely like stuff like that. That he has been surrounded by people. At point seventy two in his household and everything else that are laughing at stuff. That isn't funny okay. Now he's tweeting like that. And here's here's the thing. Is that at this point in his. Met owner tenure. He can do no wrong in the fan. Base is so like the reaction he's getting from. The fans is so overwhelmingly positive that same type of environment is being created but it makes me think about what happens when that stops. You don't like is could he cross a line at some point like if if i don't know edwin d as blows a game or luis rojas makes a bad decision a takes to twitter and tries to make a joke out of it and then all of a sudden why can't see him that performance on the field owner players. It's been more active on twitter than other owner outside a mark. Cuban and he's only been on there for. I don't know how long who knows. I don't know what he's capable. I do not see him. Take it on the players via twitter. I think this is all kinda fluff stuff and saying like as a joke like something like like not crushing player. But like making a joke about the manager's decision or someone screwing up or losing a game like that and then it's just not give me a center fielder leadoff hitter me. Dj lemay you mccann or you know real move. I don't i don't just give me one of them and then we'll go from there and if you want go throw in trevor bauer. That's fine too. And this is something that i heard evan. Bring this up. And he spent time craig yesterday. Yeah and i also. I thought sort of the same thing i brought this up to before where the this mccain chasing after mccain could also be a way to influence real muto to make a decision on the mets as well like. I don't know that they're all in on. Mccann is seems strange to me because jt realmuto is much better player than james mccann. I mean you look at every if you want to look at better framer screw framing anyway. It was like one year of good framing for mccain and we might have robot umpires at some point they give them a four year deal somewhere in that four year deal. That might be robot umpires. And you don't even have framing anymore but by any metric. Jt real motos a better player. He just is so. Like if you're going to sign james mccann. It's not because you think that he's a better player. It's because you think that you're going to spend more money elsewhere. So where is that money going to be spent. If it's james mccann is going to be on trevor bauer. Is it going to be on. George springer is it going to be on trading for door and then signing him to a massive extension. It's gotta be something else because quite frankly well. I still don't believe that that's going to happen. I'm sorry but it just. That doesn't seem realistic to me. At this point. I know that's what you want. I know that's the number one thing on top of your list. But i just don't i don't see it happen. We're big players now. The thinking about you know budgets and all this other crap. He's got he's gonna lose four hundred million over the next two years. You're going to be great tax. Write offs for him. Who cares. he's got the money spend it. Go get dj lemay. You fired the shot across the bow says. Hey we're here we here and we're not going anywhere. Well the mets have a lot of holes. We know that. And they're not going he would not only a whole he'd make everybody else better right. But if george springer dj lemay at the top of your that would be great. Would be unbelievable. Right god i don't know if i see them in a bidding war those guys at the top of your order and what that does for the rest of your order. Don't you think catcher and center fielder more important than what d- joe may who can bring to you right now. That's why you can get mccann spring. Lemay you our again. It's he's got so much money it doesn't matter but you don't also don't wanna be no matter how much money you have. You don't wanna make bad decisions lemay. You would not be but bauer might be. He may be so. I don't know i'm off our. I don't want him to bring. Trevor bauer input. I'd like to see real moto and springer. I would like to see that and like to see him. Trade for lindores. Well that were a possibility. And i know apparently the depending on who you listen to. What baseball insider. They're aggressively shopping. Linda for at this point over here in cleveland. I don't see jas jason kelsey hair. Look at that pretty good is got hair almost like you just got a little bit more on the top. Then you do more of a flattop. But he definitely has a well. I caught him significant. Mullets good. I don't know if you've brought back the mullet or you saw at somewhere else and you figured that you would go that way. No no no. I'm I think it's one of a number of things one is people didn't get haircuts for a long time the beginning of the pandemic and it just unlocked the whole world to me when i wasn't getting the haircut like i noticed i was like. Wow like my hair's curly long. I gotta do something with. This is an opportunity for me. So i think a lot of people sort of had that going form like if not now when i think that's part of it and i also think that i'm starting a revolution as well like i get tweets every day about how people are starting their mullet. I've been inspired. My barber tells me that had three different people come in now. Let's say. I also want a mullet so i think that it's i. I am inspiring some people. But i also i don't want to take full credit for this. I want to say that you know the fact you can get a haircut for a long period of time of the pandemic at something to do so know. Net sinisi jason kelsey in play all of a sudden. It's a cool thing. See that look at that. The other thing too that. I do appreciate more than anything and said you brought back your mariann edgar hockey player and you're trying to emulate him which is which is great. I just i. I think that part of it is all. That's my end game. That is the army yager nineties mullet. Now i don't i probably won't be able to do on the prom. Would he did i. It's on the table. A perm is on a perm is on the table parmesan. I can't rule anything out right now. But that is the end game and that the his hair yager when down to roughly the middle of his back at that point his career. So we've got a long ways to go but we're working on. It is your stuff that you can make your hair grow. Faster is or anything else that you could do to your head or i mean. I'm sure that there's products out there. The probably don't work. But i'm not gonna put extensions in that's asking me i'm just going to let it go for a little bit like right now. I if i could keep it just like this for a while. I would do. Yeah because i'm i'm into this. I'm and it's it's great to when you get somebody who you know. Maybe has a day off and put on the tv show as opposed to getting in their car and putting on the rate like every day. This happens where someone. Who's a listener to. The show happens to be at home and then puts the tv show on and they are experiencing the mullet for the first time they me and they said well you know i heard you guys talk about this but what wanna look what look. We're proud that type of thing. What a look. Each the morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo jerry recco back with us. Got another update. What's going on jerry. Morning brought to you by flag and anthem check out their new fall collection at flag and anthem dot com can tie up a couple of loose ends. We brought up the whole silence of the lambs. Creggan thing last night. So i went back and found this. This was on the fan yesterday as they were discussing. Evan watching the movie now these silence of lands for the first time. Did you stand in front of a florida steering mirror and just see what it looks like or no okay. Fine did you. Not he did say a lot. Evan tell people what you did. I'd rather continues for a few more seconds in front of a mirror naked. Yeah you talked. Cross the legs a little bit. I want to see what you as a woman. I was curious. There's something wrong with that or not so there. You go so. Evan did admit that he did that whole thing. Have you guys done that. I think as a kid. Yeah adult no. I would not be ashamed to say if i did. But that's actually one thing. I have not done now. I did run naked across the street into a deli in a story from my apartment. Nobody ever did this in the bellport football locker room. I'm not saying anything about a locker. I don that you guys guys do this. The hawk from yes. I saw a guy grab his scrotum and then pull it down to the ground. It's locked room hijinks like that's your man and urine locker room. This crap is going to absolutely. I'm not saying that. I haven't seen crazy stuff in the locker room bright. I wasn't so crazy. But i'm just saying i haven't done it. That's all i was. I was just asking if anybody else had done it. I know i have a i guess for f- and it was like a watershed moment. I guess enjoyed it. Yeah there was one guy who always used to put his penis on everybody shoulder pets. We'd be sitting there stretching and he would just and it was a different victim every day. What would it be where. Where're you stretching all right so before underneath him. Apparently before the coaches would come out all right so this is how bellport football practice would work at all. Get out there and you. You better be out there before. The coaches came out of their garage like the little crappy garage with middle folding chairs. And they come out star practice. So you'd better be there. So some guys like sit down in the ground waiting for the coaches and then when the coaches came got up at the horseshoe clapton the whole thing knowing terry. Yeah but you'd be hanging out you'd be waiting guys. Be sitting down and stretching whatever and this guy whoever was like sitting down he would go up behind them and then he would go down outside of the field outside on the field. He'd plop it down on the show. Yeah okay and now you would not appreciate that. You know that's assault sexual assault. I mean it was just. It was of the things that happened. You know and then and then you'd know wasn't a coach. It was a teammate. And like you know you were to guy 'cause then you'd look around on people's snickering and you look to the left. And there was he got me. Yeah i mean every by the only. The only person didn't amadou as the guy who did it. Was that big. I mean significant enough to pull that prank. Yeah right you can't pull that prank unless you know something right exactly. So yeah but in a in a lock room so like our softball okram yankee stadium. Right bob okay. I just love improver when he gets You were saying you're in the middle of now is to say like if you're in a locker on i don't think much has changed in terms of locker room etiquette. There really isn't any so at least back when i was either in college not so much in highschool more college and then you know more of the pros where he you know. You've got guys have money. Companies all over the world all of the country. And everybody's got a different way of doing things then. That's what i was telling you. The guy would pull down his. You know thank you. Stretch it to the ground right exact. Because he could do it. Yeah and just like you've never seen it before you like. Wow you and what. Al says that that's assault like it was one of those things with this guy was team clown and this is what he did and never. Did you feel like it was almost like he didn't do it to you. Weren't one of the guys type of thing. I know that sounds ridiculous but like it was just one. If you know all of a sudden there it was on your shoulder pads you knew you were in like all right right. Cool group now. I put this thing on your shoulder. You pena's believable. Not getting the ninety eight ninety nine hockey and basketball season beningo and i used to go to almost every nickel ranger home game. Yeah and there was. There was one. The rangers used to bring the players out to you. We did not go into their locker room and after one one specific game. We were waiting for richter to come out to where. I think it was the. Pr guy won't say who but brought him out and he just came out stark naked and he just came up hands. Like this guy's got past. It was not easy as question as he was. Just standing there. With ray martell with you guys been because i think he tells that story time like a little later than when i'm thinking it might have early two thousands. That's the other thing goes on so after games that we used to come into the locker room and there would be guys that would do exactly what mike richter sure. Yeah and it would just stand there and now there are female reporters in there and this is where the cameramen would would be shooting things that they shouldn't be shooting big sack and then they would take they would take take take back to the newsroom. And show everybody yeah. I've told this story before. But when i go into the steelers locker room and get sound and interviews. When i was out there chard mendenhall used to stand like this far away from my face like right up to my cheek. Dead naked to try to like. Get me to crack or his teammate. To crack while i was in. What do you think about the titans this week. Naked were short. Mendenhall up against my face staring at me. Strange who random mendenhall. Very very strange guy again. I'd say that's exactly what it is but like it because i had my high school experiences. I wasn't intimidating. Imagine people who never had that complete lunacy. Right like i mean. I played on a football team with these crazy people. All it is is the same type of big dumb. Football guys not to stereotype. But it's true just getting paid in a little bit older. That's what it is. It's just having fun their kids that's what they are. They're just they're the most of them are guys who just haven't grown up and now they have money. Yeah stature and they have fame exac tonight. You've got the rams and the patriots thursday night football new week in the nfl. Sunday giants cardinals. Giants hopeful of daniel jones. We will see if that does happen also found out browns and giants next week flexed in do sunday. Night football yep as they bumped the cowboys niners back to one. Pm eastern Jetson seattle this weekend and denzel mims dealing with a personal issue. Not sure if he's gonna player not on sunday In philly you got the change of quarterback to jalen hurts. So that's been a big deal out there as you can imagine. And then a couple of other things here from basketball. Your stephen silas coach of the rockets james harden reports as we know going to need six consecutive negative covid nineteen tests before he can get on the court with his team but silas says dull. Be hear him being here. So the level of commitment to What we have going and what we have going forward. And that's the how do the reporters watch him say that not laugh. Yeah i i mean. They've come on. This is all still zoom stuff to put your camera snicker. That is all while he's saying this. But i mean there's no way for this to end well in less. James harden changes his entire mentality. Probably true and it doesn't sound like that's going to happen now. What are the rumors to philly now. That one makes more sense to me than anything with the nets. I agree i i know. I've i've sort of been back at this. Because it's it's hard for me to envision it. Kevin durant kyrie irving and james harden their healthy not being formidable. It's just that usually works out when he's guys get together on that level. But i mean you need depth to your team and i think that the nets really in a better spot now than they would be with. James harden john wall. I would john wall. Just gotta get out on the court and play. Because we haven't seen him in two years. So i found him. I'm like i don't even care who i'm playing with. I need to play to resurrect my entire career. It's not like he's a guy who can say anything and then here's a here's a quote from manual quickly so the preseason does open tomorrow and the knicks are On the floor tomorrow night in detroit. Here's quickly who says it has been i opening so far to him would be too much. What is actually with a lot faster from college to the pros. So good thing they'll get these games underway tomorrow and get started in the season of course in just a couple of weeks as they will begin for real luke voight with the moose on the fan yesterday talking about. Dj lemay. they want to be here. Man you know. I think he would do anything to come back. And hopefully he does. He would do anything to come back. So i guess take less money. He didn't say that he said anything. So money yeah. I guess so you can hear the interview at radio dot com. The big ten officially changed its policy. Teams must play six games to be eligible for the conference championship game. So that means ohio state still in it at five as opposed to six no from the everybody laughs segment. Lsu announcing a self-imposed ball banned for this year is the aa investigates improper booster payments to its football players. Yeah they're three and five. Maybe those maybe those players were there last year. I know that. But i'm just saying what. Maybe they should take away. The national champion is just one of those things where they're trying to get ahead of the nc double a. actually imposing a real ban on them. So let's let's do it this year when it's a law season nobody cares and we stink and we're not going to a bold anyway right exactly. Yeah five and then. Lastly i'll give you the mike chefs ski quote. You started to mention it last hour. Here is fifteen seconds chef ski Not a fan of college basketball being played right now. I believe this was after his team lost a illinois a couple nights ago. I don't think it feels right to anybody. I mean everyone is is concerned. I'm not sure who leads. College basketball stung by committee of oversight committee of this committee and anything that's led by. Committee is not agile in in handling a situation. Thank you actually makes a lot of sense. The one thing. I will say though is that. It didn't feel right for any of these league whole or your hasn't exactly so football's played without fans. Professional basketball wanted to disney hockey to canada. And there were no fans. They were living in bubbles world series in texas right. everybody's had to make a major sacrifice so understand his frustration with it just like everybody else says frustration with obama's just fight through because they're not changing it exactly you're not going to change it all right boomer and geo company alive for the built ford.

Visit penn fed dot org slash power cash to receive any advertise products. Become a member of pen fed insured by. Ncua keeps the morning show with boomer esiason and greg naughty boomer and geo we left the show yesterday at about the nine fifty eight talking about how he's gonna handle the latest in the michelob bottle saga as he once again. Saw an empty michelob bottle. By fletcher lake where he lives in bradley beach new jersey. While he was walking whimsey he already dealt with this once before there was many bottles there. He posted it on facebook. There was an arrest. Made the new mayor kolding new mayor of bradley beach cold into the show to say there was an arrest. Made was a whole big thing. All the guy is now back littering again by the lake. We talked about how to handle this. Al had an opportunity to go and confront the guy because he knows where he lives so yesterday happened. We have not talked al about. This is the first time that we're hearing about the latest in the story. So al what can you tell us. Well i did call to the police and figured since we had disgusted on the air i should at least reach out to the police and tell them and when i called i said listen i understand is extremely minor but just you know the guy had been arrested in the past so i just want to bring it to your attention again. So they go. Well we'll have to send an officer to your house to get a to get a report so statement from you. I well know when you're calling. They want to. They want some information so they sent over the officer. Who had previous experience with this case. And i gotta tell you. It was embarrassing when he came in and i had to like explain situation which he was already familiar with because he had dealt with. So you know. I tried to tell him my my own sleuthing investigation and how i thought you know. I had the address of the guy. I google street view. I saw the car that i saw of a without giving away details. The guy did. Tell me that the car that i was pointing out the car that he was previously pulled over in all doesn't mean he doesn't have a second car just you know. End everything but So i said well. This was in the middle of the day two thirty. I said you know. I don't know if that was previous. You know he said you know it's kind of all over the place that That the guy had been seen doing it all hours of the day broad daylight time whatever. So they're on it and We'll see from there. They didn't give me a lot. They didn't really wanna share a lot of more details. Unless i brought up the details myself like the car. They were like oh that that that is not the car that we previously had pulled over. But like i said could be just seemed like too many coincidences for me to google street. View the house and see that car. Yeah unique colored car. Sure no. you're onto something. So i feel like maybe the guy is using a second car to not be arise suspicion. But he's using a car that stands out doesn't see diary smart. No but if you only have two cars and you've got caught in one car ready to go to the second. Yeah no i understand. But what is the compulsion of this man to throw these beer bottles here. The police have a theory on that. No i said I did say odd behavior for a for an older gentleman like that and he just kind of nodded. He didn't deem wanna give me too much information. Well it sounds like a real pro that showed up in a very very much. Yeah wasn't releasing any of the case files. Nope was protective of the investigational. He you would expect correct and he would. Only if i asked a very specific question he would answer it for me. So do you feel like when the officer left your house. He went straight to this. Guy's place no. I think he got in his car and water. We doing. yeah i would. I would hope though that follows up. Oh no they will. They did last time. They'll just increase their surveillance je driving around the area and keep an eye out that listen the bottles were still there so they worry as of yesterday. Yeah well what would. Because i don't want to pick them up. In case the police needed evidence he was asking me where they were. So we're we're on it now gonna lay back a little bit. I'm going to be more vigilant. When i'm out walking the dog since i know this happens now in the middle of the day which i always thought it was like a middle of the night situation. Yes oh wrong as well. I did get that one incorrect. Yeah yeah. I know the thing that i really need to know is why at. Yes i we know who the guy is. If i was finding out who it was putting it into it. Now that he's done it again. The question i need to know is why you can't be in that same spot. You can't be that lazy that you can't walk over to the garbage pail and throw it in. There has to be a reason whether it's he's mentally unstable. Maybe als working theory in which this is some sort of tribute or memorial to someone that he used to drink niccolo blogger with by the lake. Op- or something like that. He used to drink again. It's an older beer. So is this a drink. He and his dad shared and the day shared it on this lake. And this is some sort of tribute to him. I don't know but we're also falling in the trap of applying logic to maybe someone who doesn't apply logic when there's all crazy people do crazy things people say well. Why would you do that. Well okay. you're using your brain to say. Why would somebody do that when somebody may be completely and utterly unstable with what we're dealing with here who knows right like i was thinking too as i was walking around yesterday like if the guy is not a listener to wfan. He may have very close friends. Who are that would never suspect. This guy is tossing bottles. Yeah now i understand. But that's the thing we need to know and we tried all the numbers yesterday. Didn't work out and you may go to his house at some point. I'm not putting that pasture because now that you have sized him up and you believe that you have a physical advantage over him. I can see you actually showing up at his door. I be afraid to. I would do a drive by. I think i'd be afraid to go on someone's porch because they might think illegally they could shoot me since they're on their property so i'm a little nervous about that. All right you should be able to knock on someone's door. You thought that far ahead. I have thought that far ahead yet now. Getting shot by a guy who just tossing bottles do not the way i want my life to i mean what a story if that were to happen this audio we've talked about this. I mean you wanna talk about documentaries. Staff would be incredible izzo to do a documentary. You part of you would love that. I mean you wouldn't want to be dead but you would know as you were after you've got shot mad at least i'm going to garner some fame from this all of a sudden all this murder documentary stuff is now going to be about me. There's at least some benefit to that. Definitely a press conference where i tell my side of the story. It'd be great. We'll your corpse. In no survive injured surviv- survivor wouldn't be a murder mystery. Yes guys big thighs got shot in the thigh and you got a big guy you know. Maybe you're you're protecting your arteries there and everything thing you get shot in the thigh. You're going down you're done. Yeah you're done that would just shatter my bones. Alright you absolutely would now. What if you confront him or you see him. And you're walking the dog and he's down there and you see him. Toss the bottle. What are you doing in that situation. I will say i. I think i would say excuse me sir. What are what are we doing here. He would ask what's going on. But i wouldn't be confrontational furious. I would be nervous. Yes you would. I'd be more curious. I'd be like what's the story here. I notice you do this. There's got to be a reason like why. Why is this. Would you say some sort of memorial soon memorial here. The makeshift memorial. Would you take your phone out and start filming it. Like people do all the time now when they're having a confrontation to make sure that whatever happens is documented or at least photograph the car. The person real quick pictures this is. That's the only way. I think we're going to get the answers that we need now. That was decided that if he walks on this man's porch he's going to be shot. Who legally shot is if they somehow come together at fletcher lake. I think he can only be shot if someone enters your home while they have come up on his property. Man him what you there. You better be careful. That i mean i mean i know you're only supposed to shoot someone if they enter your home equally but it all depends on how it's interpreted coming at him in a menacing way or you know looking up. How does he see you coming at him. You know there's a lot of that stuff that goes as it is the barry ables in a friendly caring way law would be on his side. You're right that's what. I'm that's not good for me so you profiled him correctly age because of what. He was drinking his profession. All of these things you nailed the strike you as a man who would carry a firearm and shoots someone who came on his porch I don't know he. Potentially you know i don't know these These old timers second amendment sticker on that car installer. Yeah i saw now but it was hence flag in his front yard. Why did they may have mentioned here. Once before when. I when doing research on this guy he did write a letter to the editor where he trashed. Donald trump for being a bad person did he. Yeah wow you gotta send me. This guy's name. I won't say gotta gotta look it up now. I gotta see all this stuff. Because now fully vested i see that fully invested each morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo. I know you're not a big college. Football fan eddie ends. I am guess i am. You're not a huge. I watched saturday football. I watched to see on. Cbs all the time. And some of the best football out there are some of the best football especially when the fans are in the stands and all that other stuff. So i don't tell me what i am and why do i recognize inequities because the stupid decision making okay. And and i don't know how like the pac twelve big twelve or the mac. I mean the big ten. Or the mac should even be considered for any of these playoffs. These teams will play four or five games. Imposs- see in the pac twelve off these independence of all played nine or ten games. Am i in. These teams all started while back when when they should have started. And he's other conferences because of the conference presidents or whatever the hell or they you know whoever else making these decisions like coach k. Says committees for these different conferences screwed the pooch and again at he made a very good point off air to me that most these sports leagues the nhl. The nba included major league baseball. Even though they had to do it differently at belt legitimate. Now you can say whatever you want about only sixty games a major league baseball but the fact that they expanded the playoffs and everything else. It still feels legit for the dodgers to be the champion mean. We known we've talked about since the beginning. It's just different for colleges as opposed to the pros you know. And it's it's it's not that i'm saying though that these people for the pac twelve and the big ten in particular may decisions about not playing at all they. They said they're not playing at all. Right while the sec. The big twelve. A couple of the others conferences conferences. Usa all went ahead and played and they start to see see they went ahead and played and they've all played pretty much what they said they were going to. You know notre dame you know when i look at where they are you know. They're they're nine and eight. And one. I mean and so i guess ohio state speed if they beat northwestern it'd be what five and six hundred dollars well who they playing. You're talking about ohio state aren't they. Yes five north western. Yeah ten championship. And they'll they'll get in. That's the prospects games. They'll get in six game day will first of all it's brand name to. They were expected to be one of the best teams in the country when the seasons matter there matter will their conference screwed the pooch they did. So if you're on that committee you make that case. You think that it's actually going to be received. Well no people are going to say. Well the big ten is gonna want ohio state college football player. That's in my cbs. Sports minute that it's a six million dollar payday for the big ten. You're not you didn't play enough games. Yeah well they're they're going to get what they want. That's what's going to happen you know. They're going to get what they want. And they can get in and notre dame if they lose to clemson in the championship game. They would imagine that. Oh yeah then you have to. You know to have big right right right. I hear brian. Kelly if he loses to notre dame i mean if you lose the clemson and falls out of the college football playoff you. Brian kelly's could be limited. You played ten games. You'll play the big ten. Acc schedule and how states going to go into or with only one loss alabama conference champion but a lot more games in ohio state. What do you think will happen in that situation. If notre dame loses that notre dame changes the equation because nationally they are as big chore. You know they're not traditionally as strong the last whatever fifteen years twenty years who've as ohio state but they are a draw. But what. I think. Notre dame still a bigger tv draw. Oh yeah hundred. They're the team with. Its own separate television contract. That will tell you some so. So and this time. Notre dame is going to be playing clemson with trevor lawrence a quarterback now the previous quarterback ukulele play great. He was fine for him. Ukulele is an instrument. Whatever but you know who. I'm talking about your great alhassan. Ukulele right that for that but that kid what songs i really knew that place series again right to actually he gave me one of those nods like real serious like i got it. That kid ukulele. It's something like that. I know that right. We unger la la hoya uncle there we go. I expect to be talking about college football. But it really actually chaps me that that ohio state could actually make it into the college football while these other teams could be nine in one. You know i am like you pointed out. Yeah i know. I know listen. You hate that type of stuff. That's right in your wheelhouse like bureaucratic incompetence. That leads to other people getting screwed. All my god does he. Put it on a tee for you. And i don't care i don't care how good they think. Ohio state is. They have not played enough games. And it's the fault of their own conference that this has happened so let me ask if you're justin fields. Yeah number justin feels beginning of the season when they weren't playing put down. That was trevor lawrence. Did a whole big thing about wanna play right. But trevor lawrence was going to play once. The acc said there was still. The big ten wasn't right any the whole petition and everything that went crazy justin in fields. Now as they sit here in this situation do you think that he's happy that they played or not. I think he is. I mean they're going to get to play in the big ten championship game now. The question is man. I i am so rooting for clemson to beat notre dame. Yeah i am just to create or florida to beat alabama in the sec just just to create a firestorm between all these teams who actually started when they when they were supposed to start as opposed to these other teams that started later and are going to benefit from it. I think it's terrible and then undefeated. Usc you know would have less games. Or they've only played four games. They'll be out. Big twelve will be out. It's ridiculous yeah. I always stayed is what i always losses. They have to lhasa. Sure Yeah now there ain't one of they lost to you Louisiana is eight one so the answer to the question would just feels. Is that if they play in the big ten championship. They get into the college football player. Yes but the thing that when the agreed the play ever thought that they wouldn't be playing michigan that they'd only get five regular season games in that they'd be in this situation where was high stress every single week in and week weeks off. It's crazy and why are they in this situation. Well because the the conference started late right and what do they do. One of these teams tests positive. You know before the happening you know that could happen will happen. I mean it's just between you would think odds are in in college football. It's been absolutely a complete mess. I don't know mean all the. Acc teams have ten games or nine games. They've played so any brought to my attention earlier and i had to restart my call screener. I didn't realize there were people that were actually on hold the whole day. Yeah no idea. Yeah we there's my call screener got nothing had nothing on nothing on there. Yes so so i apologize. I still don't have anything on there. Actually let me do this. You're gonna restore yours but anyway we'll do that later. Because i want you to play some audio here that yet. So jerry said something that i think you didn't hear that was ridiculous. That is just one. You blew right through it like you said something. Then he responded something and then you just kept going past it and then this happened the other day when we were talking about the bengals in the forty niners in a regular season game and i said we have by far the worst lauch added. Forty nine hundred. Blew right past that to all right. I think you're developing this selective hearing thing so i wanna know. Did you hear this and ignore it or just not hear it. Play at any everything so ass backwards here could have been penis forwards. Yeah did you hear him. Sigh heard him say that he just blew right through. I did because i. It's not something that i'd rather why he said what he said. I want to acknowledge it thought that he was gonna keep some boomer on the other end of that because he didn't even didn't even react incredible it. Just i tell you man when you get flying like that man. There's just nothing about that. Nothing can get to you. Absolutely nothing can get i. We'll take a break. We will get the aforementioned jerry back in here. We'll try to fix the phones. I apologize to the callers and waiting. I didn't even know we had any calls is whole thing's been down all day. Eighty was not answering. The only reason i knew was. Because i saw a shot of cbs sports network into the control room. And i saw all the calls narrow on hold. And i said that's interesting. I don't see any well even. If you've restarted you may not see it until i sort of rescreen them so to speak okay. Wide of bringing down the fourth wall situation. Yeah we'll get that done. We'll get jerry and here. we have more. Steve somers audio as he gives you the inside scoop on what happened between the falling out of him and jerry. Seinfeld penn fit. That's a fact. Not credit card purchases. Give me cash fat. No one else gets these rewards. Ask intern nation sir. Pamphlets powercuts rewards card isn't just for military members. Anyone can get cash back on.

It's the morning show with boomer. Esiason and greg boomer and geo pretty you think jerry is the better clemson quarterback trevor lawrence or a ukulele which one it fully is the guy who has the better one for the team lay lay. Let's get to Jerry's update we do have the calls back up so that's a good thing but we will get to those and just a little bit. But i jerry. What's going on man brought to you by town fair tire. Nobody beats town. Fair tire do body. We got thursday night football on the fan tonight. We've got the rams and the patriots. We'll see the patriots can hang forty five on the rams and cam newton can throw for sixty nine yards again and still score that many points. We shall see sunday. We've got Giants cardinals we'll see about daniel jones. We don't know Here is jones what he is doing to get himself prepared. The program has been laid out. And just try to. You know take take every day you take every day and we're were to get a better and and see where we are huge game for them and the washington football team washington football team at san francisco these guys here against arizona. You got the rams and you got the the patriots. Tonight's huge games in the nfc west dealing with a lot of muscle pulls like i have in my life patriots at the ramsey and i feel like daniel jones thing is just. It's going to be very tricky. Because he's gonna feel a certain way when he's practicing going to feel a certain way when it's not game situation and then he gets out there and he's got a kick it into full gear so much chasing them down and all of a sudden pop. There's it goes again. Think about him this year. He had that long run in philadelphia. Repel down. He had the touchdown run against philadelphia. The last time they played on the ask last week he pulls his hamstring running. Yeah so it tells you what. What's a big part of his game. His legs right. That's right yeah. i don't know man. It's going to be tough there. Tricky they always say. The hamstring is tricky. Very drinking. but anytime you don't wanna take that away from him either. The one thing that i saw last week and then we started to see as the years progressed here that the giants get a little bit more physical offensively running the ball. Yeah wayne the train. So maybe maybe they won't have to ask daniel toronto's much because obviously last week they had a statue as a quarterback. You ran a little bit but not much not at all. It was six yards. I looked at looked at his over under rushing total. Yes and it jumped out at me. Although i could not place the wager i tried. I tried to place the wage you could not do. It had a couple of friends in jersey. That were indisposed can outdo. Though i didn't i didn't ask al. I did not ask. You could have done that. Because i just felt like. I don't know there was something. I didn't want to bother him. I don't know why watching red zone. He's good. I felt like he was. I feel like i'll even though. I know he watches football. But i just picture al on the weekends out at a coffee shop. It's him in gina. They've got whimsey somewhere energy nail this sunday morning. Yeah he's totally detached from the world of sports on the weekends. I just didn't want he's bother. Like i knew jerry would be doing something with football. I knew ceelo's something football. Like i just felt like they were there but allergists feel like he's got a he's got a double espresso somewhere with a view of the ocean. I am always back and ready to go by one pm kickoff. I like to see the octo box on red zone. And and i've got seven hours commercial. Free football all right. You're remember g. He spends ninety five percent of his adult life in his condo. My box your. You're your box in nba judge that one. And if you call me. And i'm not in the box walking whimsey around the box. You can go right back to the box if you need to The giants and browns flexed into sunday. Night football next week. Booting the niners and cowboys to a one pm start I know this came out early in the day yesterday. But ray perkins passed away at the age of seventy-nine he guys discussed it earlier. The jets will be in seattle on sunday here. Is adam gase. He does believe that his team after the horrific ending against the raiders feels like they will bounce back. Install it stopped. I think our players will no respond the right way and this whole thing now i mean they just they dislike flat as flat can be and you got you got issues with alex. Louis who's got what some sort of anger management issues. And now you also said that. Denzel mims missus game. He might well because also he had a family emergency and then he's gotta come back and get tested. All that time in the corentin syria to leave. You gotta leave. How personal issue back home. Wow i well no good They are seeing jamal adams now. I have not seen adams speak this week. But after the giant loss he was asked about the jets. And i thought he gave very mature answer the way they lost tonight. Yeah i'm not worried about that man. I'm where i'm worried about fixing these mistakes and getting better You know we'll we'll we'll see we'll see them next sunday. That's a great answer right funded. I'm not sure. I'm not worried about the man but on the podcast a couple of weeks ago. I told you everything that about my jets. Tenure and i just build my about. Everything else created headlines. I didn't need to but you're asking me now. I'm not worried about them. I'm just what is the spread of my game. A seventy five. I'm probably would get thirteen and a half as well man. I listening datum gays and wondering about the future of this team and wonder what's going on. I mean it can their heads really being like if this were a disney movie. They could win. You know what i'm saying like it was everything built up to this moment. Was the mighty ducks. Yeah like you know. Watch ted lasso right. Oh yeah like ted lasso. They built up to this moment at the end of the series. And it actually didn't go the way you expect that. That's what made it so interesting. Like that's what would be the jet disney movie of this year. Build up to like they're gonna wiggly's one game and celebrate but then derek carr doesn't about about you know they're going to live up not wanna game at all and then go out there and beat seattle though disney movies though usually have very realistic lessons. Yeah like this could be a disney movie. At the end of the day you suck your disney presents you suck. You're going to exactly if you watch bambi. Mom gut shutting the lion. King's father dying by wildebeest we get into you. Twenty twenty new york jets at you. Lose adam gays greg. Williams put out of their misery the searching and a half. I was right thirteen and a half in philly. They have a new quarterback. His name is jalen hurts. Here's doug peterson who just you can tell. He's had enough of these questions he was asked. How do you help hurts this week. And as i mentioned the chewing the gum chewing jason kelsey earlier notice. The big side from peterson here is. He collects his thoughts to answer. Well i think i think In order to get him success right. You've gotta you've gotta attempt and try to establish a little bit of the run game that helps your spread on that game. Geez man hold on g. Here is some sort of degenerate The spread on net. Game a six and a half. Where's that game in philly lights. Good matter though. Peterson also said he can relate to what's going on here. I think about when they said they don't go be brett. Farve be doug peterson. 'cause you might get picked off every time you throw her come on here is hertz he says carson wentz might have been benched. But he's right there with me working together communicating on things you know. He has five times as much as experienced a than i have. So and he's he's live relying on him in leaning on him for information. Did you guys also see the honolulu shark attack from a day ago. Yes they cancel these surfing championships. Yeah and the guys in the hospital. He was like an amateur surfer. He had nothing to do with it but man they the bite. The shark takata the surfboard. Oof the sharks are swarming. Was it a bull shark or a great white. No that's a great question. I should have read the i. I pulled an al dukes damage on the headline ono. I read the first few paragraphs read the whole thing though. let's see th that does not say the unidentified man paddling out at the bay encountered. The shark took a chunk from his surfboard. No actually doesn't say does not nurse shark or seven and making a big deal out of this bite mark on. The man's surfboard measured nearly seventeen inches and he died. He did what hawaii shark attack. Victim fifty six years old dies in hospital. That's terrible. i saw that. He was hospitalized that that happened. But it's terrible. We're sure about that. I'm reading it right now. Yes wow. The man died. Wednesday spokesperson for the maui. Memorial medical center told the honolulu star by advertiser. No additional information was given. That's awful and they show the shark bite of the surfboard. Yeah which was ridiculous. Yes and nothing on this species of shark. Still looking three new species i like. I usually canetti this. I'm interested to. I wanna know because if you watch any shark week you get into the the types of sharks and usually they can do the bite radius. Figure out taina shark believe. This is the elusive hawaiian ukulele short. I like most people would say and we're not sure what kind of shark it is. He's like any thoughts on the species. Tremendous james harden. He wants out if houston we know that he is with the rockets though now but needs a whole bunch of tests from to get back on the floor. You've got the preseason opening up this weekend about that. The knicks play tomorrow night. Here's kevin knox says tremendous to feel a lot of support from the club to maybe we'll see a different kevin knox who knows. Maybe his confidence is through the roof and he plays much much better under tibbs as they call it the last couple of years. That guy was frank. Neil keener maybe. We'll see a different frank ntilikina. Maybe we do now as maybe we see a different kevin. Maybe we don't see Mark cuban gave. Jj berea to point six million dollars signed knowing he was going to retire with like a going away gift. That's kind of yeah boomer. Yes you're ready to go. You're going to have to ask for two point. Six million dollars out the door. Yeah we're i'm in the wrong business for that. Sorry nets wizards on sunday. Here's kevin durant. He was asked point blank yesterday if this is a championship team. I'm never been one predict the evening. But i like our chances of you know going out there and competing at that high level every single night and toughest. that isn't as being. I think we're capable of doing. That's right day of depth. So full say i saw the video of when he was asked about james harden and his body language. It's just like go. We've got to do this again. Like i actually fell because kyrie irvings an answer questions about it. But i did feel bad for kevin. Durant spot though. There's still hammering the james hardly. Nothing's changed he's a big boy he can handle it. He just sitting there scratching his head like the answer. The question five but you could just tell like one is their first preseason game jerry sunday sunday. Who were they playing. That's a wonderful question. I wanna say they play washington. But i'm not one hundred percent sure and i think it's in brooklyn having durant russell westbrook head to head in a nets. Wizards preseason blow out on the fan. We carry in that game on the fan. I well it's nfl sunday. We probably not giants cardinals on sunday. From what i understand yes and then you also have the big ten saying yeah. No problem ohio states find with five games that six game minimum is out the window now. So that's good for them. I suppose dj lemay mayhew void. Says he told the moose yesterday that lawmakers wants to remain with the yankees. We will see of and he'll do anything to be a yankee. So you heard that. So everybody over the yankees brian cashman and lawn trust rain. Levin dj lemay. Who will do anything to be a yankee. So that means take fewer years less money why why should do any of that stuff. I mean he earned. He played his contract the last two years so if there were ever anybody that was laying in a sport. That should be paid more money. But he'll do any have be paying them forties done in the past. Well what do what he's done for you. I keep base gave the yankees at twenty five million dollars a year performance. Each of the last two years. And you know you look at where. He's you know the games that he's played the average two home runs the rbi's and the s. Oh my god. I know what jerry's going to stay with the mets bring in george springer. Jerry's going to pounce on jack ri- no i'm not gonna pound because you have said many times that why you're paying guys for what they did somewhere else. I don't understand you said that. With the nets you know they. They signed a guy that even play the platform and they gave him forty four million dollars. One of your points as always been. It's what he did somewhere else and what he did he have any depends on how old guy is and what the situation is. And if it's a team that's not true and if it's your narrative stop the narrative. The rangers bobby holik that went. Well that sucked stupid but they also sign our ten per narran and that worked out great so far so good so far so good. But i'm just telling you just be ready for it. You know and mets bringing all these guys. Listen to george springer one hundred thirty five million dollars in the first year. He sat on his ass because he got hurt For the team that he used to play four. Then i'd have a problem with okay so it's really just the injury part of the kevin durant thing that bothers you not the fact that they paid him because he did something so. It's always say this in basketball. You could you could see why going the free agent rune is is a way to get good quickly. Yeah there's no question about that and proven that may not be the case so much in football especially when you go big money. Free agency asked the former washington. Redskins has move really never was worked out now. Terrible was really bad. Remember bruce smith out when they don't a couple times you know your team has done a few gone really well. Her husband's okay. But that was one guy not like guys but yeah they did and that was a bad one. So now you're admitting that was a bad signing there we go find leading you to where your team resides. Yeah no i know. But that's why they didn't go in and sign a million guys. They just one schmuck retain retained. Anthony barr a smart thing to do right. It's your player. You developed him and you drafted him. You try to keep them right if he's good. He's i wanted a third contract. You don't mind giving him a second contract. That's what i've learned from the pittsburgh steelers. Then i'd like to give third contracts. Were you think jus think juju is gonna resign there. That could be a guy for the jets. Don't you think go steeler route like they didn't let me unveil over again. He's going to be a free agent. They're not gonna keep them once that one. What's that one. We'll watch that. Well boomer went to the coffee cup right at time. That's right they'll be banging it on the table any moment of time here when i'm trying to say all right it's the morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo. We had an issue with the phones. Before we've got them go now. We went How many little one to three hours a phone calls. I made al dukes very very happy But we'll get some in now. Let's go to cody in red bank joins on the fan. What's going on cody. What's going on boomer. what's up. Hey thanks for having me on guys just appreciate you guys that consistency every morning bringing it to us love it and i have to wish that good morning campers to the boys behind the glass. 'cause my daughter's on five o'clock every morning loves boys awesome very good. Thank you. coding and Just i'm onto. You didn't catch on as quick. Glimmer was laying down. And you just weren't picking it up with the steve cohen thing. You were talking about the news. Coen thing yeah. I i now know for whatever reason it was going over my head at that moment even over there took the point. He was dropping the proper hints. And i was not picking up. Did you did pick them. Up cody oh for sure. For sure okay. And you'd share either do you. Are we allowed to do is i. Don't i don't really wanna share anybody's names or any of that stuff you know. You don't want to get anybody upset. You don't wanna make anybody like cody's right about what he's saying like i mean he's a claiming that goes by. We don't know that he's right. Well it's up to you you guys You want him to. It's just it's just his opinion because a minute. I'm just coding. Red bank right. So what's your opinion. All right so let's get up to speed on this so boomer claimed earlier that he doesn't take everything. Steve cohen says on twitter seriously. Because he saw steve cohen refute a report from mlb insider that we believe to be true stuff that i know it was true. Okay so boomer knows it's true and then cohen. It wasn't true so that's why boomer doesn't take everything he says on twitter seriously. What do you think we're talking about. Coney was tweet on time. And i forget the guy who did it. But he put out Mike chernoff was interviewing for the mets job. Cohen replied with wrong again direct. Now there's a certain relative of my chernoff that works in the building at that. That might be him here. That was okay. So i'm pretty sure he may have a couple of words in the elevator. You know he did. He did interview for jobs. I will say cody. You're off on one thing for sure. Chernoff has not been in this building as seen him doesn't mean we don't talk to him but we have not seen he was here. One sunday apparently snuck in here. Nobody was around. Wow that is true. But he's not been in the building but yet or maybe it's not you gotta remember boomers could be. Maybe could be like it. Seems like thanks. Code is a great coal. Stop that. I could have been what we're talking about but i really cannot confirm that and remember we've got mlb insiders all over the place. I mean boomer is well connected. He's been doing this show for fourteen years for kreil. He's a former new york professional athlete. He knows people over. Have to be chernoff. We're talking about could have been any number of things any number of when i bring things here. It's not just willy nilly right i mean it's real serious factual it's solid one hundred percent saw so that's why we took the bill cowher thing seriously as we did. Because you wanted here that i tell you fifty six games for new divisions you did. Tell me i tell you january thirteenth. You did and then all of a sudden. I saw it out there. That's exactly what the nhl was doing. Good let's go to david in bloomfield. Hello david hey. How are you david. What's happening brother okay. i've met most. You're not jail but beloved the show. Thanks david real quick beer bottle story for out. I'm a retired police officer from a small affluent town in new jersey and this councilwoman. who's a longtime resident. May still be there. She calls up like every friday morning. And says someone's dumping empty case of beer bottles on a lawn and this is going on for weeks every friday morning so one day. She calls and she goes. Yeah i'm putting up a camera to see if this is back in the nineties. So we get the report and one of my guy stumps me. He's all nervous. It was one of the police officers dumping the bottles goose. He didn't like this particularly. So i want to relate with al beer bottle story. This isn't the only beer bottle story in which police had to guy. I think i think what's happening here. Is that alex burst himself in this whole thing and now this guy is doing it just to actually annoy al see. I don't think so. I agree my take on. The situation is that he doesn't know al he's not even privy to the idea that alesando him what he has done is he had gotten into this routine for whatever reason because he was unstable because it was a memorial because whatever he's got his routine of drinking beers down by the lake not throwing them out and throwing the bottles there he got caught doesn't know how he got caught but he did get caught and then either one of two things happened. He went back down there to drink the beers to disrespect the police and say i'm gonna keep doing this. Screw you guys. You got nothing on me. That's one or two. He's got some sort of weird compulsion. That makes him go back down there to do this. That i can't put my finger on. But i don't think that his thought process has anything to do with al dukes. That's my take on l. You agree or disagree i agree. I'm i'm i think. The guy's unaware this is even being discussed on. The radio has been discussed on the radio. Totally out of touch with that and is either got the compulsion doing some type of memorial to somebody it. It is odd. I think he's now switched cars to not get caught again but he will get caught again unfortunately for him okay for him he will be again like think about getting arrested for literate. I mean you really got to be doing some serious littering. They sixty year old. Yeah i know. And he goes back and does it again to mazing. I need to know about this guy. I'd like to do like in our deep dive into his mental state as to what is allowing him to do this. Bruce new cain bruce. Straighten out your Your shirk question. Sure i can't. I can't eliminate anything of course but great whites are incredibly rare in in hawaii even though they do tend to attack surfers. It's typically colder water whereas your tiger shark more your tropical maneater. Shell water heater did you. Did you see the size of the bite that he took out of the Surfboard i gotta be honest. I haven't seen it You see it yes the around the around the world and pretty much you know what shark you're thinking might be there and certainly why it'd be tiger. What about a bull shark. In those waters bruce to be honest i don't know if they're there should be both shocking wife but no expert on shorts a hawaii. I mean why florida. That's where you get full charge. Okay all right. Very obviously You served out there in hawaii. I have observed all around the world all right so so the tiger shark is known to be in those waters absolutely the most feared shark and hawaii by far. And then. When you move to say australia you worry about the great whites in northern california. Worry about your great white. Of course in cape cod is white. Is there a place. Bruce that you would not serve because of the prior shark attacks. Adelaide australia i i want and i asked. The local surfer was my first time surfing. They're sitting next to him. And i said you ever served areas that no not since my mate was taken last year by shark. Oh wow wow yeah. okay australia. Nothing in australia but keep cod the summer you get in those waters. I start from rhode island every okay all right very good. Yeah i mean. I don't know when they're off monta. Yeah well. apparently there was a lot of smaller. Great whites off of montauk. But that's like they give birth the sharks and they raise their kids shark babies and then they go up to cape cod when they become fully adult. And that's when it becomes an issue up there when they're feeding baby baby shark or sharks around teen teen sharks hated teen sharp. Disrespectful group of teens sharks.

It's the morning show with boomer. Esiason and greg boomer and geo g. every year on involved in a a committee. I guess you could call it a committee of past man of the year of the nfl. And you get the vote for who you think should be this year's walter payton man of the year and it's something i think all of us take extremely extremely seriously so i get my ballot and get the booklet. That kind of gives you the a little bit of a dissertation on each of the thirty two candidates from the thirty two teams. Okay and i. It's an impossible thing to actually vote on and you have to just basically score each guy in four areas and you give them a five. If there are five which would be the highest grade you can give in that area five star right a five star guy. So i'll give you the i'll give you. I mean it's it's really amazing was some of these people have done but so here. The four categories demonstrates excellence on the field. Okay dedication to community efforts this particular year dedication to community efforts in past years so you can see the history of how guys you know. Don what he's done and guys like geno atkins and andrew whitworth russell wilson. They've been around for a long time and they've been doing a ton of things within their community that like nobody's ever heard of. Can you win this award twice. i know they. They usually give it to you know different different people so i mean i will say this out of the thirty two guys that were on this list and when going through all of their history You know i'm gonna give it to any one of them. Sure but i had seven perfect twenty so fives in all four categories and. I don't know how they're going to determine this tell you this. We always talk about the knuckleheads in sports. The make a mistake here. They're there for more guys like this especially in the nfl because every team has a legion of guys that show up for a million different things and they try to help their communities. And i know that every sport has that those groups of guys but the these thirty two men that are on this list and the booklet that came along with them it was. It's it's it's just so impressive. About how many guys actually spend their own money. Give up their time and then have so. Many different tentacles in their local communities surprised that performance on the field as a category. So you're telling me if you're a backup quarterback who doesn't take snap the entire year but you the most charitable man in america. You're not going to win this award. Yeah all right so a glad you bring that up because there is a guy that is extremely that fits that bill right there that he's five and three of the four categories remedy doesn't play but isn't really play and But yet in his community and on his team he's highly respected. The team loves them The organization loves him and the community loves him. Jacoby percent oh interesting. We lost a job. The philip rivers so he can't win this award. You know for me. I give nineteen so he gave seven guys twenties. I did want to get into all this. But i i just want i. There's amazing guys out there doing amazing brands. That's really the point and alvin thompson. Tomlinson is for the giants appeared sayre disappear for the for the jets. Okay all right very good now. That one good thing about this is there are each team gets a ocean. Say but a nominees recognized. Every team gets one player. That's record which is a nice thing. Yeah all right so earlier we were talking about. Steve somers dukes. Jerry seinfeld and larry david. This was a conversation we had yesterday now. Al had a nugget from somebody and he doesn't even remember where he got it from. I know where he got it from. Because i was told of via something this morning as to this person was but al got this nugget about how steve somers had reached out to jerry seinfeld via email asking for larry david new email. He used to have larry david's email he must have changed it. Jerry seinfeld did not like that request and said this is not what friends do like. I'm not gonna give you larry david's email and then jerry and steve had a falling out so al told this story on our show yesterday. A caller heard it on. Our show was also listening when steve was on the air last night. Cold steve and brought this up so steve. Apparently this is the first time. I'll be hearing this. Steve apparently talked about this. And there's also really miffed as to how got this information. So let's listen to steve. Somers last nine in regards to jerry seinfeld. So what's this. What they al. Dukes said a falling out with jerry seinfeld u. s. jerry for larry. David's number is true. How did he know that i well. Yes that what did he say tells me. Yeah duke said you. There was a falling out. That you s jerry seinfeld for larry. He wouldn't give it to me and he had given it to me before we had. Larry david on his bait yankee fan and we had a great conversation and he also enjoy the interview and said you know what your real dull be more than happy to do it again. Well he had changed his email address. So i emailed seinfeld and seinfeld's response was that's out of order. That's not what friends ask from other friends. I said that that is why i swear to you. And i've never told this story. And i don't even know how dupes found out about it. I did want to embarrass seinfeld first of all and wouldn't give it to me again and that's not what friends ask of other friends. Well that's of course what friends do and he had given me. David's email to begin with so you know. If the larry david said decipher don't ever give them my email address. The summers again. That's one thing that we had a very good interview and it was very funny and he was. He was being himself. Yeah i'm surprised. How do hoops do those. That story sounds like a riff dad. I was hurt. I couldn't understand what he was saying to me. What he had given me the email address in the past branch does while you know that. Sounds like lebron kyri little bit. Yeah he's a little hurt. Nah i'm hurry man. I'm hurt so i was actually the producer during that. Larry david that one larry david interview. So i was there for that. I told you that story and it was a great interview. He was right and we had him on all that stuff. That steve said was right. One hundred percent so you don't think it would be that larry secretly said to no no absolutely not. No he was he was more than willing. Not only do we have his email he also said. Call this number so at email larry. Larry gave him his office number. I set it up through his personal assistant and he called in willingly. He could've ducted at any time. It's just it's so funny to me thinking about you know these multi hundred millionaires in larry david and jerry seinfeld. And here's steve somers. That's quite all of in between this whole thing this. I never told anybody this story. Yeah now how does not jog your memory as to how you heard this. It does not. I honestly do not remember where i heard you were in touch with all jerry. Seinfeld's people and all that other stuff there for a while. Weren't you for a little while. Yeah it was a number of years ago. Yeah i've had all very positive experiences with jerry seinfeld than his people all right. So i don't remember where i got that story from. I really don't. I don't know who would have told me that. I know who told you that. But that's for another day going to protect these people. But i do who works at wfan. Not necessarily i just. It came to me somehow. It always does boomer. Says his information always come men. My man is mr scotto by you. Wanna know something around here. You just go right to. Go could be a former employee who could be could be but it did. It did get to me at some point this morning. Who was that person now. Where do we stand on this. Do we believe that. Jerry seinfeld is right about this. Or he's wrong about it. Because i happen to think that he's wrong about it because he did. Give them the information in the past. Jerry steve etta relationship that is involved trost over a number of years now and as i explained to boomer earlier. I'm not giving out boomers number to any old person not doing that. But if someone who had a previous relationship with boomer that i trusted not to abuse that privilege steve would not in has not and did not. I would absolutely give that number out. So where do you stand on this. I agree i think Or you right back. You know what. I'm not coming. I don't like to give al larry's information i can give him your information of heaves interested hill. Email you back. Great idea. Yeah but like jerry made him feel he did right he really did. There's many ways you could have handled that like it was a how dare you moment from jerry. Steve which is not right. Celebrities tend to be weird man. You know that they just kind of different people and they tend to see the world in a different way and sometimes they don't want to put their other friends in bad situations once before. Maybe that's right would and i dunno david to come back on i you know i don i understand where jerry's coming from to a certain extent someone gave your phone number out to someone. Yeah but what i'm saying. Either gio is that you are the producer of this show of sif show at the time at the time when larry david heard the interview and you heard how good it went and how nice he was you other unlike jerry who was not very no. He was not which again this celebrity time. Celebrity doesn't wanna be bothered with the little people. I understand kind of where he's coming from. But i also now see more through your eyes because you know you got nothing. You have no ax to grind here. Sure absolutely not all right. I got it. I see what you're saying. yeah. I think jerry's deadline so there you go thank you. I appreciate you agreeing with me on this. You know think about this when you got that phone call from susan palladino in east islip. Yes you didn't know what it was about who it was. I was here to witness that. You said i don't know what number is this you had no idea for. You heard the message. You didn't know what it was like. Who the hell got my number. Well somebody gave her my number right and get look what happened. Somebody needs gave him my number. Yeah but and look what. I count on my hand five. Yeah the five people. One of those people probably did that chart they probably felt like this was such a dire situation and such an emergency that it was well worth right and steve. Steve somers of course not in the same type of need that colleen and east islip laws. But the point is that sometimes if there's trust built up and you know something good is going to come out of it. It's okay to share information of those who may be a celebrity boomer. Couldn't person have called you first and tip you off. I don't know i don't know. Yeah that's probably could happen too. But i just think like in this case. This was a dire situation. This was an extreme situation. Yeah that i think everybody realized needed to show have a light shed on it. You know what. I mean by the way Just so you know. We've closed page for colleen. Now onto winter center of autism site and. This is the message that i received yesterday. Okay okay this has been an incredibly successful effort for colleen boomer thanks to you. Wfan for reaching out to us and getting us involved.

Pen fed credit union visit penn dot org slash power cash to receive any advertise product. You must become a member of pen fed insured by. Ncua keeps the morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo on day we have to do palmer's movie reviews because when you break these movies down that you're watching it's hilarious. Somehow he got wrapped up. Zach galifianakis mufi again. Galifianakis gets out. He's a pothead. There's something going on with him. And then downey junior there and he looks great and is clearly a drug addict. It's huge robert. Downey junior fan man right so you got wrapped up in this thing. I remember the movie due date. I don't remember that movie. I can remember it on my list of movies to go see so i i watched it because they searched him as an actor and it was ridiculous. It was just ridiculous. I tell you it was ridiculous. I saw one of the top three worst movies. I've seen in my life. This past weekend and i was searching through some like the new release have movie theaters. Bright so i see. It's got aaron eckhart in it who i've seen in movies before and really good actor it's got tommy lee jones in it. Love tommy right. So i'm thinking all right fugitive. Yeah so it's like these guys wouldn't be in that bad of a movie. Would they be heather. Graham is also waited. Who was an actress that pay people. Don't so i'm thinking this is good. It's the story. The plot that was there up on the screen. That i was reading was a paranoid former cop stumbles upon a murder investigation. That he thinks is linked to his own daughter's death. Something like this is. This is perfect. Sit down and put this thing on. It was the biggest pile of crap at ever seen in my entire life. Because it'll be the worst movie ever seen in my life because it wasn't even. There is a new release. Yes oh tomatoes has got to be like rural. It's called a wander by the way it's w. a. n. d. e. r. And it was so fricking bad. Challenge anybody to watch this challenge you and then let me see rotten tomatoes. It was so new that i feel like i didn't even look it up. Yeah it's like it's here. We go wander twenty nine. That's not it either. It was so new that it's i don't even think anybody's seen it yet. I just got released. So you're saying don't watch it yes. Don't watch it to watch the whole thing. I ended up sticking with seventy five percent of it thinking that because there was like a chip implanted into him and the thought that he was paranoid. But it was like real in zombies. Came in and i. It was was so bad and i almost like i almost tried to find the director. Yeah and see. If i could write him a letter was that bed. That's how angry i was. I was gonna say how could you possibly make somebody pay for this. And they didn't mention the supernatural zombie aspect in the description at all thought. It was a street cop murder thing. Yeah that's what. I thought it was nothing in the islands ambi- but i'm not even sure if it was ambiance or not. That was the thing it was so bad. Didn't even know was obvious like there were people that were being held captive underground somewhere that had ships and planted them. And you don't know if they were dead movies where the critics give it a ten out of ten now socks. I knew from the opening scene that it was going to be the way they shoot a movie. Yes show elect an opening acting in the first scene where there's a person like dead in the street and the cops show up just the way that it looked in a way that they sounded. I was like this is going to be horrible. You got stuck into. I did wow all right anyway Okay we've got Jerry here with update and moment of the day. What's going on jerry morning brought to you by winners brothers. Waste systems creating a cleaner and greener. Long island. learn more visit winters b. r. o. s. dot com thoughts from joe judge daniel jones. We go see him this week or not. The giants play the cardinals giants first place by way of a tiebreaker with washington. Top of the nfc east couple more wincing it. Back to five hundred. Here's head coach joe optimistic. I know he's gonna tell us everything we want to here. We go again us or is it said daniel jones for sure wants to be out there on the. Foley's wanna play. And i'll continue to to communicate that i think you know my my goes to is to play every week. He can be out there. Giants cardinals one pm on sunday You've got thursday night football at the rams and the patriots that opens the week in the nfl a week. Fourteen giants tackle dalvin tomlinson and guys touched on this already and former jed quarterback peer to peer nominated for the walter payton man of the year award along with thirty other players from around the league. Obviously the jets will be in seattle. You've got denzel mims. I doesn't seem like he's going to play. He's dealing with a personal issue so his status is very much in question as you can imagine. You've got a lot going on in philadelphia with the quarterback position carson. Wentz out jalen hurts in here is hertz. He was asked How're things different now. with this change or this week starting quarterback my role has changed but my preparation hasn't preparations. Now i thought was interesting. He was asked About his parents reaction to him getting the starting nod. They found out before. I told him so very too right. I mean that's like the sign of the times. Everybody here's everything on social media before stuff actually gets announced as guys Do make the announcements online. The reporters do then. We had Jason kelsey got a bunch from him. The first one. I found interesting. We played it earlier. I'll play it again. Because he was asked to be felt a sense of responsibility if he felt bad that his taking the fall for a bad team responsibilities is the right word. I mean there's you you don't feel bad. Carson is unfortunately not played. Well so do you know these are situations happen. It's a sit down. He did go on though to say it's on all of us offensive line running backs receivers coaches you. Aren't this bad unless everybody shares blame in this whole thing says unbelievable where they are at this point in the year. Three eight and one. You got to do something. Yep and so when says that said he'll be back have no doubt that this is not the the the final to the carson wentz story or saga hurts eagles against the saints. On sunday. you got reports about james harden eating six negative covert nineteen tests before he's allowed to actually get on the court with his team. He did report though. So that's a good thing. You got the preseason opening up this week in the nba and opening day december twenty second. So let's say. Today is the tenth so we're twelve days away from the swat interesting. Yeah james harden said he needs six. Negative test is gonna take one a month by the way sphere of covert nineteen Ceelo told us yesterday about the eight players on the panthers that got put on the covid. Nineteen list right. And we're thinking okay. We're gonna have another outbreak in the nfl and turns out that these players contracted this away from their facility when they all got together o punishment so they all got together somewhere else it wasn't in the facility and the panthers don't have any other positive tests moment. Yeah but again he just goes to show you how vigilant you have to be away from the facility because the facilities are being scrubbed down wiped down. There's all the players are only allowed in certain areas and they're being really really careful within the facilities why seattle and the jets. I don't think have had any players of Come down with copay. Nineteen the jets had a false positive. That doesn't count. Saying i don't remember there was an actual pilot and i don't know how many other teams there are. That have not had positives which is a testament to the organizations themselves in how they're handling this and how serious they're taking. It's also a testament to the players because he's players and carolina contract to this thing outside of the facility when they all get together. Hey same thing here at wfan. Nobody hears gotten it right. We're diligent not since sean right. Yeah since march right and talking about since we all came back. And i thought there was somebody who maybe mayor somebody one of the producers or something having knocking on wood. I'll knock on wood knock on wood today spray day. Oh it is. Yeah well that was back. That was the first wave. i'm talking since we all came back here now. Because i've seen people again. You know we all scattered at that time and everybody. I don't know you were here. But you're the only person here. Yes but right but there was Maybe something else somewhere when somebody else in the building but oh yeah upstairs. Yeah that's right somebody upstairs but that's not us it's up stairs job right. We i think we have is all i was trying to do. He was give a little credit for crying out loud. Taking care of ourselves dot com. Yeah in terms of the preseason years julius randle. the knicks will play in detroit tomorrow night. His lofty expectations for will save mistakes. As long as they're playing or communicate Plays work out there. You go new. Coaching staff feeling around the team. We shall see nets wizards on sunday. It is washington boomer did check that out kevin durant will be on the floor. We've seen him in uniform. All good in milwaukee honest and ten them kupa met the media. Is it'll zoom conference. This was interesting. Just because you know what milwaukee has done to try to make sure he remains his thoughts of the team acquiring jrue holiday having the team is big time in those. A great leader is a great human. Being he can defend gets the ball and so the obvious next question so he planned on resigning with the super max with the team but i now. I'm not saying that. You know. I know i my agent. Alex and Jon horst and the bucks ownership are focusing on But those discussions and i'm just focusing myself haagen. Get better then. They have like a two week period. The sinus thing was like some sort of time. Timing on this thing. I'm not sure of the timing. I just know not exactly jumping up and down saying let's sign the supermax. I mean i why well because maybe he wants to go somewhere else. That's why you know he's gonna make a lot of money. jimmy miami. Maybe that could be a place awesome. Go from milwaukee to miami. Yeah i mean when you want to. I hope that doesn't happen. I really lucky walk in new york. Yeah i that's probably not going to happen either. Not very much of a core here right now for a superstar.

AP Laboratory - Episode 57 (Mailbag)

"What's up everybody joining today? My Name's swansea this is the A._p.. Laboratory mail bag edition for the week in it's a special week because football all starts on Tuesday we are. We've made it guys. The rookies and quarterbacks are reporting on Tuesday this week we have football to start over analyzing here shortly here to help me over analyze with with all these things that are happening this week Craig style in Mattie Lane Matthew Lane find him on twitter and chief and Carolina. How are you doing my man doing great like you said for chiefs? Fans football starts this week actually more more specifically it starts five days from now. That's right training camp opens up on Saturday five days from right now. It's only gonNA cost five dollars to get in and watch in while you're waiting in line to get in. You can just drop a five star review for the PODCAST. We we enjoy your questions. We love reading reviews kits chuckles every time I dropped one of these that's okay I enjoy the smile and makes his hair. Look even better how you doing today great. I'm doing great yeah. Let's talk about kids hair some more shift shift that shift that beacon towards Kit Swanson and the Glorious Lecture Yes obvious deflections because he doesn't WanNa Renaissance Manjo yes but yes football starts this week. quarterbacks rookies report this week. Take this is great. This signifies the end of the off-season when you are writing about football and you are in the off-season it is tough to come up with content. It is tough to come up with motivation sometimes it. It is tough to do this podcast sometimes because we don't get a whole lot of information especially over this past month. We're going to get new content. WE'RE GONNA get new information. We are just as excited about all of you guys to be talking about. Real things happening on a practice field. I forgot to mention this because Mattie last week or two weeks ago promised that any questions in the five star reviews we would answer so matty. I'm going to ask you this question if bring a cake eight gum if k gum injure was your head coach which barbecue would be your offense in which beer would be your defense. I duNNo. It's a very toto question. Let's think about this. Which Barbecue has the best aerial attack like which barbecued we know that has the base like wings Gates Gates Yard Kinser Gates that big Big Gatesville O._J.? We're going to air all you just said aerial attack and you said aerial attack and I took it as like never mind okay Craig which beer is the saddest Mr Style. We need the status of beers it would be a Russian imperial stout something that has been aged in Bourbon barrels. Let's talk twelve percent or higher see and this is what I'm the G._M.. Of this team because I just delegate all the hard stuff to other the people that was great good good job mad that was a tough one shadow to 'em mouse one eighty-seven for asking that question appreciate that I had no idea what to do with it but Mattie did a very good job. Let's just jumping right now to the to the mailbag questions we're going to start with some twitter ones and we're going to start with a tyreek hill question. I feel like we probably need to go there. I because we haven't talked since tyreek. Hill was not ruled to receive any suspension. What sweater wants so ever Aero? Dentists Asks I've seen a bunch of people talking about who is negatively impact from the hill news. What do you think the Ben who who do you think benefits the most from it Patrick Patrick Mahomes then if it's the most from Tyreek Hill and Patrick mahomes together is a special combination you saw Patrick mahomes several times during the season drive a ball and tyreek hill just went up and got it or I think about the Patriots gain the First Patriots game where they scored to score too fast in the first second half with three minutes left in the game Patrick Mahomes kind of just got the ball in the general direction entire Rico to went and got it and finish the play for a touchdown? Those kind of explosive plays just happen because of two unique talents Patrick Mahomes is the one that benefits the most from tyreek Hill. I think that's the obvious choice <unk> however I think pats bordering on already being good enough that he would still be plenty good without tyreek hill. I think they could make it work. They're trying to replicate the same general traits detail has. I don't think they'd get that skillset set from other people on their team yet but the physical traits are there. I actually think Sammy Watkins might benefit the most because now he goes from being the clear cut wide receiver one on the team to definitely wide receiver to most defenses which you're gonna get more plays like if we we go back to that Denver game last year that he was healthy for where he's running crossers against linebackers or get safeties trying to slide now on coverage to just getting him in situations like that were to clear mismatch for already a super talented player. I think probably boost him the most <music> neely I don't WanNa feel Craig's answer here Sexual Edsa. I I do have one more. I got one more right Mattie. You're cutting in a little bit but Craig Boys. Why don't you want you answer that question Russian well? I'm GonNa say that I think that it's Miko Hartmann that benefits the most from it I I know when we drafted Meco Hartmann that there was a lot of talk amongst US amongst chiefs twitter that he was tyreek Hill replacement based on exactly what was happening on the field and we'd just kinda jumped to that he's got you know legit speed and so the natural comparison was there and we said that we were worried worried about that and him having to play wide receiver to or if Sammy Watkins went down having to fill in as like your wide receiver one we said those types of things right after the draft no longer is that the case Sammy Watkins and Tyreek Hill. Oh being active and starting on the outside is the best possible thing that can happen to Michael Hardman. He is going to get the chance to come along slowly. He's going to get the chance to develop as wide receiver and he's going. We get the chance to work underneath be more of a gadget player and a returner this year while he's learning Andy Reed's playbook learning how to be a wide receiver. This is the best possible scenario for Mykola Hartman going forward as a future player. I think this this this is just great for him. Everyone in the livestream is pressing F- to pay respects to matty's connection and there are several fs in the livestream thank you for paying respects great googly moog great googly Mo- Eleven asks. I love this question. It's kind of perfect bodies not here to answer this one. who is the genre alfio sapper steen of the chiefs the underrated most important player who takes the chiefs chiefs from great to elites Bravo for the question that I just I just that's just that's perfect? I so good who is the most important player <hes> that's underrated. Let's go with Sammy Watkins. People have have disregarded Sammy Watkins value to this team and maybe he didn't make as many appearances last as you would have liked. There's there's John Ralphie connection I they could've made a show a standalone show John Ralphie. I would watch it Sammy Watkins because you wish you wish he was on the field more but when he did it made the entire thing better man that's that's a great one. I thought about it a little bit. I was GONNA say Sammy Watkins as well but since you took that I got an audible here man this is tough I I'm trying to think of the person then who would probably be most likely to get hit by Alexis or most likely vision Lada Real and speaks these days on no no no no no. It's not brilliant. It's not be brilliant because he's not the worst but it man i. I don't know Sammy Watkins is GonNa be my for the exact same reason because you want more you want more of him on the field also Patrick mahomes because we don't Petra miles we want. We want more Patrick Mahomes homes fair enough oh you S._A._S.. Who will be this year's pirker anger as in the surprise piece that beach flips for someone else surprise? We've talked about a lot of gas. Give us a little little Allah field. Little Outta left field because camera being has been my guy that I I've been speaking on for quite some time. Little Bit Outta left field. Let's talk wide receivers all the sudden and with tyreek Hill back in the mix. There's a lot of wide receivers on this squad. I think that maybe and I do think that demarcus Robinson should be wide receiver three to start the season but I think if they think that Byron pringles coming along if Miekel Hartman learning a little quicker than they expected those guys are going to be under contract through next year as well you can move on from demarcus Robinson. Maybe collect an asset there. I know we've personally talked about him a little bit in chat I think can't maybe even brought him up initially but you start thinking about it and he's a guy that does have value in this offense but if the right trade it came along. I think you could move him. We'll stay on offense but Carlos Hide. You see you see Darrow Williams getting some run. He's looking good. You like what you're seeing. Darwin Thompson someone goes down and and and they need someone goes down for someone they need a quality running back to throw into the mix Carlos high were to make a lot of sense to me for a team to be interested in acquiring chief still lose a lot of dead bunny if they are to move on from a guy like Carlos chiefs sluts asks what is the plan with the almost thirty million dollars leftover and cap space well. I think what you're going to see. There's going to be some extensions this off season and I think tyreek hill is potentially the I guy to catch that and I don't know this for certain but I would guess maybe the chiefs one structure it in such a way that they can get out of it if they need to. If there is another incident of a personal conduct turn you know more things like that or maybe even a clause in there about something that you know behaviors or anything like that I get that he's been cleared of wrongdoing zero game suspension and all of that but they might hedge a little bit and try and make get to where the signing bonus isn't spread out over multiple years instead guaranteeing more year to year in a way that they can just kinda get out after a certain year so tired killed still get paid the same amount of money just wouldn't be the a massive upfront signing bonus that could create more dead money going forward. I think that that's what they're planning to use it forward and then just kind of role over the rest shout out to his dirt. This who's on the livestream right now. I forgot who that was because he's been missing for like two months. Give me honestly like what they're going to do it. The thirty million dollars cap space. I don't think they have a ton of plans for yeah. Maybe the Chris Jones extension. Yeah maybe the tyreek Hill extension but I think they had this money earmarked for other things like Earl Thomas Making twelve million dollars on a one year deal things like that they I think they're playing just fell through Ronald Darby rb. Maybe they had some plans for Ronald Darby with that money. I mean I honestly I think I don't think they intended to have this much money going into this time of year so carried over in helped pay Patrick Levonne mahomes. I don't know if they really have anything that they're going to be able to do with the rest of this Cap Brandon four twenty two asks Gimme a player comp for Gary deeter. ooh That's tough. I'm bad at player comps. These guys can attest to that when we were doing the draft guide I- I leaned pretty heavily on mock draftable and researching from from that I got one you got one. You got one. It's it's pretty bad I my natural tendency is white possession receiver like I mean like that's the easy thing to say a wes welker type but how about no he's not a west vulgar because he's bigger and he's not quick. I'm go and check this out. Patrick Levonne mahomes friend being receiver in the group Griff Wayland got signed to the colts and he was Andrew looks white receiver at Stanford so there's by Griff. There's my griff wailing. Good Derek deeter scared deeter better than Griff waylon been much. I mean like I maybe he's currently playing for the Calgary stampede hours per wikipedia. I think Gary Peters making this team. I do too. I I really do you see the connection and we talk about <hes> you know building rapport with your quarterbacks and important things. They've got that he's definitely got that. He's been working with with Tyreek hill off season it appears he went on vacation with Mahomes I. I kinda buy into it. Even though honestly you run a rank the receivers on talent he's seventh eighth in that room right now not so that's a dunk on them too much no no but it's the work ethic and it's connection. It's it's it's it's the brains to yeah. I I wrote an article. It might be on Arrowhead priority. I don't know that I was talking about the receiver group in how like guys like Byron Pringle and Miekel Hardman if they take steps could really help you know the long term outlook of the receiver position but I didn't include Garrick dealer because like Gary. I think he kinda know what he is. I don't think there's an athletic ceiling athletic upside to him. The same way there is guys like Byron Pringle and Miekel equal hardening because those guys a lot of intrigues. You is the athletic profile those guys you don't say that about deeter. He's just a guy that knows where he's supposed to be built report with Mahomes so then on top of that I mean you gotta remember Derek Deeter with active for the A._F._C. A._F._C. Championship game so it was killed so Sammy Watkins demarcus Robinson. All those guys were active so I they they obviously see enough of him to trust him in that game. He returned a fumble that for whatever reason wasn't a judge fumble. I was talking about it. I maybe a little emotional may not have gotten a true good. Look at it but that was definitely a fumble that Gary Peterhouse. Did you see Chase Snyder posted today. They're you talk about how Julian Edelman starting to camp with a with a finger injury that that was a great joke. The finger injury occurred from that play. Apparently he's still hasn't recovered. It's been a really long road to recovery Tanner Graver asks. I read the best cover. Zero bidders are slant routes which chief wide receiver runs this route the best so yet slants are a great cover zero beater and there's a lot of reason to that one because it helps you get the ball all out quick because when you see cover zero pressure typically actually there's there's more guys for that. They're bringing than you have the block so if you can get the ball out quick if you can get the ball out and look where the slants are heading this lancer heading towards the middle of field. It's a shorter distance throw with throwing a ball hot and then throw into the fact that there's no line of defense beyond your defender so those three things matter when you're throwing a slant route or when you're throwing against zero pressure and that's why they are so they are so valuable. I'll give you one craig. I I have to so you pick one and then I'll just take whoever you don't take Sammy Sammy's great man Peter Peter Sammy is great at getting off the line getting leverage on a corner and coming down with the ball a little bit contested Sammy Watkins. We saw that time and time again last year was really good beating man coverage bridge especially single man coverage. That's what you're going to get in cover zero so that yeah I it Sammy Watkins with Sammy. He's really strong with the ball too so you know he's really good at the point of at the catch point and that's really valuable for how you know. He runs slant routes the other guys tyreek Hill. It's a little bit different. If you're going to tell me I gotta through a slant against zero pressure. I'd probably if I need if it's third three. I WANNA throw to Sammy. If it second in three I want to throw the tyreek gear and I wanNA give tyreek a chance to take it to the house. You saw the chiefs hit. You saw the homes in Hill. Make connections on slant routes a lot last year the Yak ability with tyreek on slants most of the time with the R._P._O.. You kind of stuff. That's where he's got a ton of value because you sneaks out the back door a lot of times you know he the big play potential but I still you know seconded three. You're getting zero pressure throat the tyreek and see what happens okay okay Irish chief one asks. Let's look weak one and tell us your matchups to watch nick foles in a new scheme. Will we see the old Nick foles and how the defense can try and disrupt a veteran quarterback in a new system Craig. I think that Nick foles especially in regular season is human. I think that you can force him to make mistakes. I think that you can force him to Kinda. Throw off balance. He's just not the most solid sturdy quarterback in the pocket there. I obviously that super bowl run that he made was amazing and as a backup quarterback but he was a backup quarterback for reason. I'm not necessarily worried about nick foles. <hes> Steve Spagnolo is going to speed up his timer in a big way. He's going to blitz him heavy. He's GonNa play all sorts of games upfront with that defensive line. He's going to wreck havoc. They're they're going to have to try and lean on the run game a little bit early. I think to try and keep foles comfortable. I just don't think that you could do that with Patrick. Mahomes on the other side of the ball any make nick foles throw athletically <hes>. I know he's done a lot to you know he did a lot of good things even off platform against the eagles but I think is a different beast one. He doesn't have the same kind of familiarity that he does with other guys you know this he stepping into a new situation and he doesn't have that same kind of rapport that he's built with other eagles fans so eagles player sorry so I don't know if you can trust it the same way so that's one thing I do and also you know like we'll see what we'll see. What this we'll see what this new defense looks like? I mean there could be some changes in some permutations to what he's typically done in the past that they haven't seen it. He took a year off. He watched a lot of football. He lost a lot of college football football and he watched teams. Try to defend stuff like the run pass options. It's I expect some wrinkles. That Craig Matt really haven't seen yet. Oh yeah for this for this defense so I'm really excited for varies. I've been watching more defensive tape lately because I don't know why but like I've been just like watching. I watched her various ward last night a cut up of him. Maybe we'll talk about that later. I have some real concerns and I was watching spags to like. I was just watching spags tape from mm seventeen so adams ook asks thoughts on the chiefs N._F._l.. Looking to implement a three three five type scheme to better stop the area type offenses like Iowa state started doing Craig. I'm sure you're familiar with with some of the things that the Iowa state's done with three men front. It looks like four in the box at times it really I mean it's kind of a bear front and I there was an article. He attached to it but I think I know you're familiar familiar with it. I know I'm a little bit familiar with it. Do you think teams can start using some of that three-man bear front. Maybe maybe for those who aren't familiar you might recognize. It's called a tight front and T._i.. And what they do is they have three down lineman a nose tackle lined up over the center and two inns outside of the tackle and then on the sometimes sometimes inside sometimes inside the tackle but if I five times they play real tight for sure for sure I was state typically on passing downs likes to have those guys outside the tackles though but then they have three linebackers Osama Mike and a will and sometimes though Sam and will linebackers and that Sam could be like a hybrid safety or something like that or a slot corner but those two guys will kick way out on the slot receivers leaving what looks like a four man box with the three down linemen and the Mike Linebacker you got your two corners on the outside and then you typically typically have three safeties in the back one of them they call kind of like a a joker safety or Jack Safety but he plays in the center of the field almost like a Tampa chew linebacker. He just doesn't start in the box and back out into that which is kind of a weakness of Tampa twos you get thrown over that Mike linebacker that safety will stay in the middle of the field and it kind of split up into thirds back there with your corners upfront. The problem with that is that the box is so so very light now those overhangs salmon that will can crash down but from the interior you're really putting a lot on those three safeties back there to have to come up and and be fit run fit intermediate fit defenders there so that they can help stop the run. You're going to be able to fire off your guards. You're going to be able to get those guys to climb and Kinda squish some of these lighter guys guys back there and make it very difficult for these for the defense to really stop a decent rushing attack there. It works in college because most of those guys are athletes. You got smaller guys out there. I realize I'm going on a big rain here. This is amazing stole. Stop this is this is art it also it also matters because a lot of times those rules for the type fronts are dependent on the field and the boundary and I know I talk about field and boundary a lot when I'm talking about N._F._l.. Field and boundary you know if it's on one side of the Hash the short side of the field is the boundary. The large side of the field is the field in college. They're much wider wider zig much sufficiently wider so then all of a sudden if I don't like that by the way I don't either Borer Watch college football heyday so somebody if somebody's on the Hash in college football they can call it formation into boundary and there's a lot of defensive coordinator that won't shift to the strength of the formation. If an offense pushes the like the passing strength of the formation into the boundary because it can limit what the offense can do against that short side of the field. They'll still play to the field field things like that in the N._F._l.. If you're having your will in your Sam have to kick that wideout win the balls in the center of the field. You're just giving the offense more space to work on both sides of the ball so I I don't I see that it's going to be a major revolution. You'll see implementation of it. Bill Belichick has implemented it in the past but I don't foresee it being like a major you know uprising and something that's GonNa take over the the N._F._l.. And be a base defense going forward in the N._F._l.. Well I have plenty to add to that. Let's let's let's hear no that I that was amazing. I thought that was some of your best work and I have nothing to add. I'm really glad he's not here. I had to take over because Mattie was supposed to be I on that question. He was going to go along on that. I was GONNA try tag on it so yeah yeah good those really good Ben Wipe for eighty five asks besides Mahomes what player injury hurts the chiefs the most. I'm going to do a look kind of a Mattie answer here anyone anyone in the secondary because the secondary so did it has nothing to do with an individual player. It's just anyone in the secondary your turn Craig goodness and math lines here Travis Kelsey tied into I think is the weakest backup position. That's out there. Some would say corner I would say the starting corners are not great. Either Tribes Kelsey is an all pro player and then it's a giant cliff and that's okay. I think they can find a guy to fill that in but if Chelsea goes down that that limits a lot of what this offense will be able to do going forward one thousand percent Travis Kelsey Diani elders not running why I so they're not isolating Diani elder on the backside <hes> if Travis Kelsey gets hurt. Sammy Watkins becomes all that much goodness yeah yeah yeah because that's that's your ex. That's your he's GonNa. Sammy probably stays a little bit more stationary. You Lean on him him to win that one on one matchup backside play him a lot kind of as that as that X. that true X.. Which is where you know Kelsey blinds up is the why I saw a lot so if that happens you need Sam Walk Ins on the field P._D.? Son Chiefs asks asks the most intriguing position battle left guard cornerback four or tied into Greg than say. I'M GONNA say left guard because I think it matters. The most out of those three positions left guard is a starter <hes> quarterback four ideally shouldn't see the field throughout the course of the year the obviously we'll see in a little bit here and there but this you know yeah but this team it might be Keith reeser. It might be mark. Fields olds were shot Fenton. Those guys really don't enthuse me. I'm not really looking forward to watching them do get out. I am looking forward to watching Andrew Wiley and Cam Irving and a little bit of Nikola Grady if they give him some reps their guard Khalil McKenzie. I think there's a lot of depth there. I think there's a lot of potential for a guy to Kinda sneak in and be a decent starter on this offensive line. I think it's widely but I do think that that battles going to be fun to watch of all those position battles. I think it's probably cornerback for I guess just because if mark fields can overtake Keith Reserve. I'm not even talking about reshad fitting right now because I I don't know I I mostly just maybe can I just isolate too. I WANNA see if mark fields as his head on straight enough to make this football team. We'll just does they can football team is going to contribute and he's he's super talented wanted. He's probably one of the more talented cornerbacks that they have in the building right. Now we will be back with questions from the email accounts and more twitter questions after this.

Why did you get you shouldn't have brought you shouldn't have backed down moving on? We have several questions from the email account which I add so awesome that people are sending an email questions. I love it do do we wanna hit the question from the chat. I sure yeah while you creek while I remember my. My memory isn't what it used to be. I had it down but yeah go. Oh did you go okay. No Winkelmann asks from the chat important hair question. Sammy Watkins cut his dreads last year because he was quote too old for them. How Long 'til pat changes his hairstyle and what is he change it to listen? Pattern changes style in exactly three years. The chiefs are GONNA win two super bowls over that time national that Second Super Bowl win. He's GonNa feel like he's now like the veteran he's now. The leader may unlock row. He's GonNa get a nice high tight fade. He's gotTa Look More Professional. More like grown-ups got to be the adult in the locker room three years from now to Super Bowl rings. You just yet cleaned up a little bit. Just don't go Russell Wilson. Please don't go a full Russell Wilson never go full Russell Wilson Sorry Craig. Did you have something to add no. He's he's going to go. He's GonNa go clean nice smooth dumb. No yeah as going to do that. Quick grow egg now. quit trying to make a bald happen questions from the email and what does that email address again Craig A._p.. NERD SQUAD AT G MAIL DOT COM we have we would g mail guys. This is crazy. We're we're almost a year into this show to a couple emails literally literally anybody can have gene. I know it just feels official like I have like fifteen. We got people. Ask US questions via g mail and we've barely advertising. I think that's pretty cool. Rule shucks guys that crazy wait until next week when people start sending you like postal mail like real snail mail questions. I doubt your address the other day secretly yes. You're going to get some questions via the mailbox. That'll be fun types. There's no way that ends bad <hes> record predictions for each A._F._C. West team <hes> I'll start. I'm just going to do the chargers. The chargers are going to go ten in six and be underwhelming and <hes> but they're GONNA win ten Road Games 'cause they play sixteen anyways <hes> Mattie. What's the raiders record? I don't know too and fourteen wow wow. Do you have a lot of faith Nathan Jon Gruden. I have even more car clearly now. The and I think the amount of games Derek Carr sheds tears in matches the two invoices eyeliner run that was a sad picture less year seriously said picture. I almost felt bad for I didn't Greg what's the speech Bush Derek Carr an M._v._p.. Candidate one yeah so anything yeah bill the broncos broncos. I'M GONNA go seven to nine. I like Vic Fangio. I think he's good defensive coach. We'll see how he is as a head coach but I think he's going to bring a good attitude back did that defense. They're not talentless there but they do have Joe flacco is Vic Fangio GonNA play quarterback. No no he's not but I drew walk my by the end of the season we'll see I I think the defense is going to be pretty good though yeah imagine trying to win without a quarterback can't relate yeah. We didn't go through that at all ever never John H E emailed in. He said Hey guys chief's Fan in New York and love the pod that means a lot man appreciate it a win. Does it get to the point where you don't care anymore about how little love the team gets every off-season especially after back to back to back in West titles John. I'm already there my friend. I don't care about what people think about the chargers. Kinda love it. I kind of think it's funny that we I think the whole I think the whole bits kind of funny at this point. Everyone one picks the chargers. They poop the bed that she's win the A._F._C. West. It's a really fun cycle. Please continue to doubt Patrick Mahomes. It's beautiful matthew. What do you think yeah is Kinda funny this point in time for some the reason that she's on a wok for the title every year according to most people and I'm not sure why even football like opinions that I believe I really respect their opinion will still come out every year just like the chargers look like a team to contend the A._F._C. West? I just I simply don't understand it's funny. I'm a little baffled by it used to bother me a lot more but now pat's here the team looks like on paper latency super exciting so it just now it no longer matters to me but when it was more of a struggle even though the chiefs winning year after year it was a little frustrating middle of February next year after the chiefs win the Super Bowl and they still pick the chargers to win the A._F._C. West that that's that's when it won't matter her I want. I want more love for the chiefs defense this offseason way getting any of that from national media so I still got a little bit of a chip tiny little chip on my shoulder seen those cornerbacks I have you seen everywhere else though <hes> I I watched some cornerbacks last night I creak that already <hes> he okay John John H also asked this question also. I've been a chief's Fan for about sixteen years now. I'm twenty six. I constantly get called a front runner now of course in your opinion who is the appropriate name to throw out there. This is very important. Who is the appropriate name to throw out there? When saying I suffered through the Insert player coach here times I usually use Tyler Palko probably the most important question we will ever answer Matthew Jordan black when he had to try to block Dwight Frene in the playoffs because Willie rose tow was acting up and they player that I a nicknamed is sixty five because you could drive eighteen wheeler right in the middle of his chest on any given play that'd be Jordan blacks the guy for me? We'll never worst answer you could have given that's so there's so many more futile moments in our history street Craig Help Matthew out toddler such done. What's the thing that made the chiefs not draft another first round quarterback and tell Patrick La von on Mahomes Todd blackledge? That's that's how far back there. That's an appropriate name. I know you're twenty six so that's before your time but just throw it out there because that is ridiculous regulus they were. They drafted so poorly that they didn't address it again for thirty plus years Craig. I don't WanNa disrespect todd blackledge Romeo. Cornell is the biggest black mark on this franchise of all time Ma no no. I it's my turn to speak you. Guys both had an opportunity and you washed by the Romeo Cornell. Era was the singular worst experience I've they've had but also the singular best experience. I've had as a cheese fit because it was so bad you just had the laugh and you knew good things. We're coming off of it that you it was so abysmal the two and fourteen season I I had season tickets. I went to every game. I wore a bag over my head and the only thing that got me through that too and fourteen season was the Romeo Cornell drops that he he he said the dumbest things the most amazing things in his press conference. He talked about Osmosis at one point <hes> he he he defined what a long snappers job was well well. If you could take the ball and you can throw between your legs backwards you could make pretty good living in this league sounds like a guy who knows football. He does clearly. Let's play good football eliminate bad football football signs hanging that is the most futile existence of our chief's fan of and it's not close. Oh come on Houston join a black trying to block anything in your life. Did you say was in the playoffs. Yeah okay it was in the playoffs. He ended the chiefs from potentially winning the Super Bowl when they had a team that can do so because he was so inept they put a backup tied in in his spot to block a pass rusher instead the cans. They weren't going to win the Super Bowl. You don't know that do you don't chief's Fan. Listen to the Radio Cornell era. I can't believe you picked Romeo Cornell. I Love Romeo criminal. I would homeo- Cornell if I ran into him coming in bringing the heat right now for me. He wouldn't lack had a thirty five overall P._F.. Grade A seven point eight pass blocking grade seven point eight kids Mark Levin Point Eight Mark Room in asks <music>. Hey guys love your podcast. Thank you that means a lot really does I've in the market for two New Jersey's this year. Obviously the first one will be mahomes was leaning towards Chris Jones for the second one but what percentage percentage chance would you guys predict that he and the team aren't able to agree on an Extension Act. Thanks advancing keep up the Great Work Craig Chances That Chris Jones in the chiefs are able to agree to an extension man. This is really tough because I do think the chiefs have been holding pretty firm that they're not gonNA sign in until he shows up until they see him within the scheme. I know we've talked a lot about that that this coaching staff once guys that are gonNA play a little more gap sound that are going to be a little more disciplined within the scheme so with that in mind that's up to Chris Jones and with a being after Chris Jones I'm saying fifty fifty there is is a chance that Chris Jones does not get paid for this team this off season. I I don't know that for sure he could come in. He could do everything right he could ball out in the first six weeks and then we're signing him to a five year hundred and something million dollar contract but I just think that he needs to show that he can play within this scheme. Be The setup man do everything they want him to do and and then you know proved that he's worth that amount within this scheme yeah. I'M GONNA say forty five percent. I think I'm with drag. I think it's pretty close to a fifty fifty at this point in time and I'm not a Jersey Guide but if I was if you have if you're looking for a player that's going to be on the chiefs for Awhile Chris Jones just be a little too risky for me right. Now I would lean toward somebody like a Frank Clark that you know's going to be around the while urge pick some. It's under contract. That's GONNA be year if that's the big thing for you just because I would be too afraid that Chris Jones is GonNa want more money than the chiefs are going to be willing to pay it. Chris Jones wants Aaron Donald Money without putting up the exact same season you have last year. I'm not sure the chiefs are going to be in position to pay it. I do think right now. Now I'm winning a little bit towards him coming back to the chiefs next year at least for one year under a franchise tag but long-term. It's just it's too close to fifty fifty right now from it. I'm kind of in the same boat as these two guys. I don't feel overly overly confident about the situation. We'll see what happens. We'll see what day he reports day one. He's showing one. I hope so <hes> real quick update. Some people in the livestream are providing their favorite Romeo Cornell L. quotes. We got a human nature says boom we got a he says Javier has little groin but it's actually Jalil Brown has a little growing. I remember one is <hes> well. They call football and the foot. It is part of the game I mean he was just he was a quote machine. He really is what brought me through that season. You could just kinda laugh at the existence of that season it was it was something risa mahomes asks states our projections for Mahomes now that the Legion of zoom is intact if you don't know Brit Chief U._k.. Off of one Craig's wonderful statistics about about the receiver groups in their forty times coined the phrase the Legion of Zoom and very here for it stat projections now that the Legion of Zoom is intact matthew. We're GONNA crack five thousand yards again so we're going one five thousand twenty six yards. The Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes is gonNA crack five thousand yards and then touchdowns. WE'RE NOT GONNA get if he is not gonNA hit. Fifty can't say weekends get on me about that so we're going to go with up forty seven touchdowns. One of them is going to be rushing and ten interceptions who I like that. I'm going to go fifty two hundred yards up. I'M GONNA go fifty two touchdowns and I'm GONNA go fourteen interceptions. I know that seems a little high but he he tries some stuff he he just a little more of those no looks and he just drives some stuff where these these stats left-handed or no no no behind the back blindfolded. Oh okay now. It seems more reasonable. Give me give me forty nine touchdowns touchdowns because I'm such a hater. Give me fifty one hundred yards nine interceptions forty nine nine fifty one hundred wow I am going full on. Here's the thing they don't have the score forty points to beat quality teams. Just lower down sets I I. I'm going full homer I I'm not I don't understand how projections homer when I'm saying the chiefs uh-huh win more because the defense is better. I don't follow your logic. Can't I don't either. Maybe I wasn't totally listening to your answer. SWEB twenty nine asks assume you're breadth each if if the cowboys called offered you Byron Jones for Chris Jones Straight up. Would you accept the Trade Matthew no I liked Byron Jones and I would love to have him on the team but I would like to see by I Jones actually played quarterback for really well for full season. He really slowed down the latter half last year from the few games that you to see the cowboys so just printing him into a new system that plays a little different than what Chris Richard Asks from his tend to cover three system. That's the the same Seattle it's a little bit more straightforward. I would like to see more than one year by jumps at quarterback before trade. What Christians can be what I know? He can't be this upcoming season. I think I'm going to go with yes but just barely. I think the chiefs can handle. Maybe Losing Chris Jones. I do think that they're not as dynamic. They don't get after quarterback as well. I don't think that they're nearly as good of a team upfront but I think Byron Jones's clear-cut cut C._B.. One that solves a lot of problems on the back end at solves a lot of issues that maybe you might have at corner and you're not relying on some of these guys to sort of play above and beyond what they would have to do. Do you know to be a good defense plus. If Byron Jones has another goodyear all the sudden. You're going to be paying him like a top C._B.. If you're willing to pay Chris Jones twenty two million dollars paying atop C._B.. Sixteen fifteen million dollars at that saves you a little more money. This is such a tough question. I really like it because quarterbacks don't hit the market very often and it's it's really really hard to acquire top in corners. I don't know for sure if Byron Jones is quite that yet though I feel like Chris Jones for Byron Jones straight up probably isn't a great deal but if there was if it was like Byron Jones and a third for Chris Johns I think probably take it. It's close especially considering the money you gotta spent like it's a really good question. It's a really like there's a lot of ways that could go with it. Go back to mark's question a little bit ago. I believe it was was it marks question yet marks question with Chris Jones if the chiefs don't plan on having Chris Jones your long term. I do think it's a trade union aspects so if you were V._H.. You are planning on keeping Chris Johns long-term than I think it's a pretty clearcut. Yes just evadne trading form right now without really thinking about the future of either one right now I would not do 'cause I'm with you. I'm not ready to save by. Jones is a top to your cornerback just based on like you said about half of last year yeah yeah but again but like it's just it's. It's a great question but it's hard to find cornerbacks. It's hard to get them. They don't hit the market very often. I think you're more likely to find Equality Defensive Lineman than you are to find signed cornerback on the open market that being said Chris Jones is still a very very. He's a little more than quality yeah right right so it's it's it's hard. The cheese haven't done much at the cornerback position though it I ibe frankly the closer we get to the season. I'm terrified. I watched char various ward last week or last night. I'm sorry and it was like a cut up and I got to see a lot of plays of him playing off coverage and it's a work in progress. He's gotTa make a big step. He's got to make a big step because they need and he's got to be better off off coverage. He makes a lot of big steps and I think that's part of the yeah. No I mean it's a good joke but you're also we're. I want I want him to do well. Believe me I want him to do well but I have some hesitations. The more I watch chart various ward and when I watched him in that context so in that cut up I was I was a little uneasy. We've talked about that a little bit. We talked about that through the end of the season a little bit and a little bit this off season. It's he needs to feel the route he needs to be impressed. He needs to be close. Oh so the receiver and kind of have his hand on them to feel the route and yeah like matty said giant strides and it's hard. It's hard to get in and out of a break. If you're in the Middle Your stride he's a big dude in the guy like him. Trying to transition is like it's it's not easy. He was better fit to be a press scheme if he was getting if he's getting a press consistently we talked me incorrect if easy it in the press consistently this year. That's GONNA help him a lot but I mean he's he's. He's he's got. He's got to improve the athletic profile a little bit Casey Royal Fifty two eighty who gets more sacks this year Chris Jones or Frank Clark more sex Chris or Frank Craig. I'm going to go with Frank. I don't think it's by that much but I do think it's by. Maybe a second half I. I'm going to go with Franco yet with frank as well. He's GonNa get more snaps. It's more optimistic at Saks and just the way the defense schemed teamed up right now. It's designed a lot to get your best edge rusher. Get pressure weather up the middle or off the edge of the middle coming off the edge. It's designed specifically for your defensive. Instigate your pressure whether through the stunts through the games the running running or just isolating them one on one. I know we talked about early to start off season that the three tech in this kind of scheme is going to be in a perfect position to get pressure and they are but the way spagnuola and even daily Kinda really drew up their defense from what I've the film it's designed around your stud. Defensive ends getting the pressure with one on one against offensive tackles or looping onto the interior behind the defense attack on the sun. Oh me <hes> sorry about that yeah. I'm it's sweep it Frank Clark. Give Me Frank Clark over under twenty eight sacks for the group Craig just under I think that Cork will have thirteen and a half and in Chris Jones will have twelve so just barely under and we talked a little bit about numbers earlier in the year I think they're gonNA come from everywhere due to Spec Knowle's blitzing preferences and everything like that that still still with those to score and that kind of sack total Alex Okeafor adn another seven or eight the rest of the guys around there are probably going to collect another you know handful and they will still be up there close to the number that they put up last year when we were talking about how they were the number one team in Saxon pressures and everything like that they'll be close to that this year even with that since Kuenz calling out my home or Ism I'm GonNa go to go with over over twenty eight sacks. <hes> and I actually do think it's pretty realistic. It's like we talk about. I don't think Chris Jones is GonNa drop below a significantly below what he had last year so I'm seeing twelve thirteen for him. I think freight court comfortably gets more than him not by Tomba comfortably something we're still looking at it fifteen sixteen sacks. I know it's GonNa be a big career for Frank Clark so twenty. It's a great number but I'm going over or to give twenty eight and a half to twenty nine. Twenty eight is a great number. I'M GONNA push why not our twenty eight on the fellas. What are the odds on that? GimMe the odds on that. I'm saying fifteen from frank thirteen from Chris. If we'll take a couple questions from the livestream I think I saw a couple someone said over under on mahomes throwing six hundred yards in a game. Let's just say yes or no six hundred yards in a game from vitamin. No no no I'll say no but he'll throw in the fives at least once next year. Maybe twice would have happened last year who is going to happen. I think so the rams game I mean Rams Game I think he threw in the fives during the rams game right. It was like live twenty-six something like that yeah I'm GonNa do. I'm going to check because if it's five twenty six. I need to give get a life Craig D._C.. Anymore in there yeah what would would you do if perfect does something dirty to mahomes and injured him like describe your feeling tweet immediately I I would I would lose my mind and I wouldn't shut up either for four seventy eight against the rams so he didn't break five. He break five once last year. I'm Nicole. He breaks five once this year. Just was GONNA do it. Just once just wants this cat or get what game is that. We got asked what everybody thought or what we thought was going to be a potential shootout this year so that that's perfect segue into that game ms a shootout. Let me look at the schedule real quick. I could see the packers game being shootout okay. I I could see packers game might be I that could very easily see that one being shootout guess I mean we play the Patriots. Yeah I would say if if if the Vikings got any kind of competent quarterback play I'd say the Vikings game just kidding. I just wanted to throw some kirk cousins slander because I know mattie likes mattie thinks he's an average average to above average quarterback can't saying he's a backup quarterback. I didn't say back up. I don't think he's remotely worth thirty million dollars a year. That's ridiculous we <hes> we just found out that Allen Bailey to the falcons to your contract low money so sounds about right there you go after Scott Peel. E Stir Scott Piola leaves. They were just waiting on Scott Pelley to get out of the building so they could hire his guy guys. I think the packers is direct call. That's a good one and the Patriots those two big ones you look at a quarterback. That's willing I don't think I don't think it's GonNa be a shootout against <hes> on. It's it's late enough in the season that Tom is gonNA be forty. Plus your old. Tom And he's just going to be turned out in the ball and getting the ball out in the flats right away and get lucky on a couple of throws were Steven. Nelson doesn't toes definitely GONNA have to score a lot of avoided the conference championship game last year tent. I'm just saying they had to scorelines better. It's not it's not a shootout though if the Patriots being in good enough for a half and then Tajik mahomes coming back so imagine if pat was good for an entire game. That's not a shootout. That's that's yards all right. Let's ended on that. Would that's going to do it for this week. Show we'll or this week's bail bag. We'll be back later in the week talking about anything that happens in the first few days of training camp at the rookie quarterback interesting year <hes> or we'll just start making stuff up that will do look for this week sh <hes> mailbox.

I'm doing great jay and a little sad news. Ray perkins passed away. You know former new york giant a coach. Now if you know going back and looking at all the things that he had done he'd never had a winning season as coach but he did lay the foundation for the giants. When you think about he hired bill parcells bill belichick and romeo cornell on that staff and then when he decided to go back to alabama and coaching become the athletic director at his alma mater. That's when george junk turned the bill parcells and said you're going to be the head coach and you know and then you go back and you look at bill parcells as career and yukon. I try to figure out. He coached everywhere. Sure i mean everywhere. I mean everywhere from hastings to army to air force and everywhere in between i mean is a vanderbilt mean. I feel like we're talking about it talking about parcells every day now in relation to the giants and the jets. I mean. he's just one of those guys it's always going to be mercenary or yeah but he's also always gonna be around you know because what he meant to both organizations he's always going to be a reference point well plus he's a jersey guy on the other the other aspect to the to realize like how all this stuff kind of manifest itself and what it all turns into in the legacy all these guys leave so perkins wants to alabama had a little bit of a good run and ended up leaving there and going to tampa bay then had a bad run and then after tampa bay. I believe that sam white took over for him there. I think that's what happened But it's just amazing how all these people are tied together and so ray perkins dies at the age of seventy nine and bill parcells a seventy nine the same age in the same time and Bill parcells actually. As i was reading about this. I forgot all about this. He went to go work for a land development company in colorado and he bought season tickets to the broncos in this was like right around the time the giants when he said it was the worst day of or the i guess the worst year of his life and then decided to go work for the patriots as linebacker coach and then perkins finally said. Hey why don't you come work for us defense coordinator. I want a life lesson. I know things are going bad boomer. You never know in that opportunities. i just don't mean it's fascinating when you look back on the history and all this stuff and especially the new york giants and quite frankly you know maybe. The giants their next bill parcells. They talk about young guys. That were taken over a franchise that hasn't been very good and and quite frankly you know when they ray perkins i think was the guy that drafted lawrence taylor and had him his first year as rookie year and then all of a sudden you know between ballot check and romeo cornell Who was a special teams coach by the way. Bella check with the linebackers coach You know maybe. I'm doing a little revisionist history. I'm not really sure. But i just think about how all that stuff unfolded you know in the early eighties. And how perkins decided to leave to go to alabama and maybe he was going to get fired anyway because he wasn't doing well but he assembled a hell of a coaching staff. It is sort of funny to think about how the giants may have their next version of bill. Parcells joe judge's in his career now and then the jets are also looking for version of bill parcells later in his career in the late nineties. Who that guy is going to be to bring them the credibility because bill parcells obviously was a different person when he took over the giants and he was when he took over the jets. So it's just those parallels that are going on with the organizations right now and that name who brought successful places honestly not a super bowl championship to the jets but still. He brought them back to credibility in a championship game. That was a huge deal at the time after what they went through as we know. It's just the organisation sort of where they are in their history right now. They both needed another bill parcells. Well remember bill. Parcells also went back and coach the cowboys jerry jones needed short dose our credibility in reality and and he was the one that found Tony romo for that matter and then when you think about going to the miami dolphins in their front office again it's a credibility higher you know and it just kind kind of makes you wonder like what the jets are going to do. Do they need a credibility higher. Now more than ever before. Warda's or joe judge big enough influence and and i get a big enough person to be the guy in the building. Wanna be the guy in the building. I'm assuming that he does but i. I don't know that perfect. But george george was a task. Nascar a gm a guy that brought the organization together guy that was put in there much like sandy alderson was put in for the mets. A few years back to get the team right so now the question for the jets. How do we get the team right. What what are we going to do. And i know if they ended up with the number one. Pick you know. Trevor lawrence would be the guy that will get the fan base back. The question is who is the coach that now also comes along with him that is going to be able to ignite the cells and the sponsorships and the excitement again around the jets. And one of the things you talked about specifically being a big problem as to why the jets are where they are is the fact that mike mccann state and adam gays came in and they couldn't work together now. This is the only reason. I bring this up now because we've been over that ten million times that wasn't great is here. We are again with general manager. Who's going to stay. You're going to be another head coach. That is coming in. We're talking about the credibility stuff now. Someone needs to walk into the room and beaver man. But that if you take the names out of it and just speak. Generically isn't always great for the remaining. Gm because that guy usually has people he wants to be around. That guy has a lot ideas that hey look. I've got this this this on my resume joe. Douglas just became a general manager by himself with this particular job. So whoever that person is if the jets are going to go the credibility we need someone who has done it before route like. We talked about earlier in the week with bill. How're you better make sure and dam. Sure that joe. Douglas and that guy on the same page. You don't repeat history again like you did. Where the mike maccagnan adam gates thing just completely blew up and everybody's face. It's amazing me. When i when i really think back to all that decision making and how how it was put together you know. I always sat here and told you. I want strong. Gm i want the gm to be the guy that you know. Could walk at that coaches office. Ask him questions about. Why isn't this guy. Play of what is going on with this guy and and be the boss of the operation i. That's what i want. I i've always wanted that. I've always felt like that is the most important thing and even like when i played in cincinnati. The general manager was the owner. Mike brown he and paul brown basically ran. The team selected the players selected to coach and they would watch film or tape. Whatever you wanna call it with the coach on monday morning and go over everything with everybody now. It made the coaches uncomfortable because it was the owner slash general manager and. I'm sure. That's exactly what jerry jones those down in dallas. But the thing that i would say is that the johnson family didn't grow up in football. You know that you could say whatever you want about these. The following owners. The rooney's the brown's the mccaskey's the mara's try to thank the. Yes the hunt family. Even the the arizona cardinals. Yeah these people. This has been their lives. The they've been in football the business of football you know since they were kids generations generations generations and generations so they they kind of get the sport. They understand the sport. They've been around the sport. You can't say that. About the johnson family. Especially when woody decides to become the ambassador of great britain and then he leaves an lease it for christopher has never been in this thing before sure so it was a messy hiring. It was an arranged marriage. That might mcalinden brought in greg williams and then they decided to go with adam gates because what he because christopher's smitten by him. And you know he says. I'll accept greg williams. That's fine he can handle the defense. I'll handle the quarterback in the offense. You know you can't have siloed head coaches like that or coaches like that like. Oh like co head coaches. It doesn't work so you gotta have a strong guy that has a hand at the top of the organization. In this case it would be joe douglas. And then he if he wants to make a credibility our lack of bill cower. I'm sure they need to sit down and talk over things to see whether or not they stay aligned with how they see football being played especially in this new age of football and all that us or if it's somebody that has he's worked with somewhere else before whether it be wink martindale who's the defense coordinator of the of the The ravens but the thing is. I don't want wink martindale coming in here and coined the defense i want. I want the next head coach to coach. Yeah but that's the thing that scares me though is when you have built like let's just throwing hypotheticals out so i understand i'm really. I'm reaching here but just let's let's talk about this scenario. You mentioned about a bill. Cowering joe douglas sit down and they're aligned on football all right. Let's say they bill. Cowher says hey. Sounds like the money's going to be there. Sounds like we got trevor lawrence. Now all i have to do is sit down and see if i agree on the direction of the organization. And what if they don't. Then what do you do as the owner jack. Then you gotta let him walk out the door why that's a whole nother set of so that's what i'm saying is why here we are again. Like the point. One adam gays failing at the level that he failed as a head. Coach of the jet really screwed up their plans because once they fired. Mike maccagnan brought joe. Douglas part of the reason why they brought to joe. Douglas was then adam gates and joe douglas and previous relationship and they thought that these two guys would be coasting together the next couple of years that coasting but working together the next couple of years. That's why adam gates was so desperate. We heard stories about him. Like freaking out when the contract negotiations were going on with joe. Douglas he wanted to get done so much because he knew the guy they aligned on football and he thought that his job would be safe if he was here. And now that's completely blown up. But you know how i i often say. I have often said over the last three to six weeks that they basically have screwed up sam darnold and it's and the reason they screwed up. Sam darnold is because of the way that this whole thing went down. And how this whole hiring. And mismatch of greg williams and adam grace basically see adam gays the way i see it if there is a stereotypical coach in the nfl. He's one who's and not just have. It's all coaches unless the name is bill ballot. Check john harbaugh. Or andy reid Most coaches are going to be really insecure about where their next job is always looking over. The all right always knows the best way of doing things and is going to be very very steady as ways. And he's going to joe judge is trying to do here with the firing the offensive line coach at dealing with golden tate. And all that other stuff so he was so worried about not getting another shot at a job that he took the job under the guise. That greg williams is going to be as defensive coordinator and that greg was going to handle the defense mike. Macaque news going to be the general manager. I think i think. Of course johnson saw the mismatch and personalities between the canyon and gays. i don't think mccarron wanna gaze. Of course now. We knew that there was at some point. A dagger was gonna be in your back soon. So if it didn't work for sam darnold. It certainly wasn't going to work for adam gaze. You can't expect a coach to be able to coach a team that is fractured like this. And that's why it is important for me from where i sit to see that joe judge gets the right guy you know he knows the nfl. You've hired him to be general manager. Douglas joe douglas. You've harden to be your general manager. Let him do his job. But just as built up bill. Belichick says all the time. Just do your job. Just do what you're supposed to do. And let joe douglas and all the experience that he has had in three different organizations all the people he knows in the league. Let him go through the process. Obviously the ownership has to be involved in it depending on how big the check is going to be but i just i personally would let him do it and let him be the guy so he hires the right guy so there is some synergy in the building and then the head coach is able to hire his staff. Sure and youth kind of threw a monkey wrench into this whole thing on monday when we talked about bill cower because in any normal situation that you're talking about with joe douglas and hiring the coach. I agree with you because that's the way it needs to be. That's the structure that is going to work but does joe. Douglas want that type of personality. I'm just telling you. First of all bill did tell me on. Sunday loves joe douglas. Okay so they probably do see it very similar coward and with mci becton over their left. Tackle men you. You got the foundation of something. That's going to be pretty special offensive line. You don't think. Joe doug is going to be scared off by a hall of fame coach walking in now all of a sudden. It's it's team. Because i don't think i look again. I can't. I can't speak for all these guys. Because i don't know all you know the particulars of all the their mindset and all that other so. I don't think i think coach cower or any coach of that ilk would probably want to collaborate with a guy like joe douglas and let's see. How do we see the. I know how coach cower sees the game sure he sees the game offensive line defense line running game. Okay okay. yup those are like those douglas. Things are the tenants of football right. Especially when you play outside in the northeast and this time of year. Look what you got out there now. I can also imagine again. I don't want to speak for him. But i could. Just imagine. Coach cower watching the steelers. Throw the ball fifty three times dry drives him nuts. Come on man. This is not steeler fulbright. Not who we are. We've lost our way. We need to throw the ball forty times and running an extra thirteen times or we need for the ball thirty five times and run the ball an extra eighteen times. Whatever it is. But i just tenants to you know you got to run the football and you have to look at by the way so after joe. Judge fires his offensive line coach. Now of a sudden we got seven offensive linemen rotating implying which is great and all of a sudden run the ball effectively. This this is the this is the recipe to win one. More question that i know. You haven't asked bill coward directly but it's very interesting to me if you have any sort of knowledge like one of those guys that you see you read in the articles. A person familiar with bill cowers thinking thinking. Yeah but all right. Dole cower seemed to be interested in. You know likes joe douglas. His wife is a jets fan. He loves being in new york. All of we about the jets right so all of those things. Great so he would sort of. It seemed like we were alluding to eat sort of think about that job but has he now crossed that line into thinking about other jobs to. Oh i don't know about the. I don't think kids i can't say that let me because couldn't you see him. Coaching the bears. He would be great on the solve. I've said it a thousand right so up there in the scores nagy. That's like that data. Ui the bears won't pay what it would take. I think and the jets will i. You know it depends. It depends on how far the jets feel like they've fallen so when leon has realized that he made a major mistake and he needed to fix that mistake. Yeah what did he do. When got bill parcell and it didn't matter what the cost was and it didn't matter what the you know the fact that they had a trade forum and all that other. It didn't matter the guy in here. That i know that it's gonna come to work here. And immediately re establish some credibility my franchise sorta like me with my garage doors this summer where i had the one garage door that was functional. The other one wasn't working right and the guy came in and he said hey you know i could fix the one garage door for cheap. But i don't know how long it's gonna last or it could give you two beautiful garage doors for this cost and i said screwing gimme the two new beautiful garage doors at the highest price. Because i don't wanna be dealing with this because this fricken garage doors been driving me crazy. It's the same thing as a homeowner. You are confronted with these opportunities and sometimes you could slap some duct tape on it or sometimes you can go out there. Go top dollar. And say i'm not dealing with this anymore. Which is what the jets. What you do is you bring in the business side right. And they've held and you tell the business generations of fans your thing side. You tell the business side okay. Here's here here. Are candidates here. The people are going to look at here. The people are going to talk about. What do you think in terms of selling this person selling the combination of the quarterback in this person as the head coach. What what kind of number do you think that we could create. So let's just let's use an arbitrary number of twenty million per year. Fred coach which is a lot of money. But that's bill belichick and sean payton andy. Reid and mike tomlin is guys are like. They stood on the sideline. the fancy. Those guys like tomlin's making twenty million but he's making more than ten. I can tell you that. But what i'm saying to you. Is that when you see. Those guys on the sideline as a fan. You feel good. You feel good that your team is in good hands. Just like when. Parcells was that new england when he was at the giants when he was at dallas when he was at the jets immediately. When you see him on the sideline you're like damn got a guy that knows what the hell's going on out there and he's a tough guy and our team is going to be tough so now you ask the business guys. Can you sell that. The business guys will probably go crazy. They probably would tell you. You know what we could probably increase ourselves fifteen to twenty percent if we hire this guy as a head coach. Now you've got to go back and you've got to look at how much you're gonna pay him and how much you think you're going to raise or sell after you hire him. And then you gotta balance that number and you gotta think about overall credibility and having that guy standing on your sideline whoever that guy is boomer and geo on the fan and cbs sports network just getting started on this thursday morning.

I still want to get the name right and yet the greatest radio career in Boston history and they all stature Jerry make no mistake not revenge recommend Gerry Callahan. Thirteen goal the. It's my honor to tell you that you're going to be the three hundred twenty eight Paul Favor. I promised myself I wouldn't a years Gerry Callahan. I don't WanNa Brag Alex Reimer Dave Cohen Brag. But I didn't cry. I watched Jimmy Johnson get his hall of fame The news that he was in the hall of fame by the big monster of a man that L. Fame Guy. He's like huge which guy and he gave cower his hall of Fame News on Live. TV did again for Jimmy Johnson. By the way. If you're going to stack up the two hall of Famers Fox's Hall of fame is a much better coach than CBS's hall of Famer but it was very emotional. Everyone was hugging him. Troy Aikman was All all broken up up. But I didn't cry do you think. How many did you cry? I did not know how many of the people on twitter who said they cried. How do you think how many wise wouldn't that be like embarrassing? Embarrassing like you're a grown man cry another grown man told. He's going to be in a museum. Kate no hieaux. This is why we watch sports. I guess that's another thing the new trend but they're going to tell guys they made it into the hall of fame on live. TV maybe maybe week until curt schilling. He made it in the hall of fame. That's a great couple weeks curt schilling by the way made up with Alex Rodriguez. I thought the last ten minutes of the Gerry Callahan showing pod but they got over complaining about twitter followers show twitter twitter falls. He's been banned from twin. Okay band I I love how you act like. That's some kind of made up thing. I love people. I love which we didn't know going into the interview. He was on twitter over that and he was fighting with people. I think you know we were going to. We did talk about it but he was. You Know He. He doesn't do a lot of sports. He does a lot of politics people on twitter. He was kicked off twitter. Alex but a lot of people on twitter with larger followings and curt schilling also do a Lotta politics from your side of the island. Don't get shadow banned off shore. I don't think I have been banned yet. Dino my old was Dino Ainhoa was and he said from making fun of Lester Holt and I'm not sure how he did that he was he hated Lester. Holy still does and he would mock him at tonight. I don't know something about you. Know he's a he's a liberal and he'd just pick them apart but now he's not registered. Republican stop that registered Republican. Just did you find right. Dino got kicked off did you know I did not I just saw it on you know. He explained that I think twitter because he started a new dentist. Count to get you. Don't think you get told why you get kicked talk either right so like a guy like schilling who so active. And he's talking so much shit on a regular. Do you have to hire lawyer. How do you get an answer for that? That's my turtles. Why would have known that question so good question but he was fighting with people a few days before he joined us he joins us? He's off twitter. Completely was a podcast could couldn't tag him on facebook could rely latch on facebook. But I couldn't tame any posts but you can you know like Sulamani was on twitter but not curt schilling could be you know. Muslim Brotherhood is on twitter. But not you know. Turtaboi Turquoise back on twitter I know he's not turtle boy you can't try by his house and be on twitter all you banned him no he he has a he has. His wife is what it sounds like. You All should be wearing tinfoil heads. I mean this is like now like twitter's says the guy who ran away from twitter for nine extremer. Do you understand because I'm healthier now. Can't you showing healthier curt schilling at a quarter of a million followers. He said something to upset. You know the twitter police and they kicked them off. Why is that you know tinfoil hat stuff? Because a lot of people I think have tweeted a lot worse things curt schilling and stay on. Maybe maybe he's got a point that curt schilling has is like the episode. I love this. This is this rhetorical. Do I have this right Dave. Alex's argument is not everyone's been kicked off twitter so he shouldn't complain that ofttimes profiles and Curt Schilling stay on twitter and tweet a lot about politics two trumpian politics so don't get kicked off and he there's an argument argumenty something else to this story. Well I just gave you a few turtle deleted his account John. Dennis Turtle Boy Curt Schilling all the greats great so be kicked off twitter. Alex Jones my low. Lots of now you name. The liberal kicked off outs go ahead. I've come close a couple in bossier so and I don't think almost got booed no fence. I don't think you're a you're big enough yet. You will be in no way why you're here if you're just tuning into the Callahan podcasts. That's Alex Reamer who has been underground for three months. He made his big return last Monday. Enjoyed it too didn't you do. Yeah you're all fired up back on twitter. I'm back you're writing for four articles. Yes you're writing for Forbes which excited we're GONNA get to that because as I tweeted you know. Alex is back when he's writing really dumb shit and you did. And but he wrote about the Rooney ruling. We'll get to that but I I know it's a- and we know you want to do an Azure should reflect. Its workforce right right. Well I go to the weekend. See if you think I'm all for I don't care what anybody he says I love that as a Gr- these last couple of weeks of NFL football the best time for sports on TV the best time to sit on your ass for like eight hours and in Watch football anybody. Who doesn't do that? I feel bad for you. It's like the people who don't watch the masters. You don't know what you're missing you saw. Though that Boston saw ratings for niners read glad they put it in the top ten niners. Vikings niners Vikings. Yeah Jimmy G. was not in the top ten in the country. I don't care so actually the wild card weekend was much better foreclosed game this this week not great weekend. There were no close game. There were no close games and yet it was pretty entertaining. We're you would. Maybe the craziest half play football second quarter of the Kansas City. Same quarter it was. It was amazing. It was twenty four nothing. And if you're on twitter you see people just killing the chiefs and saying the Billy O'Brien is Is going to the Super Bowl and then an hour later. It's like is Billy O'Brien going to get fired because it just got away from. That wasn't really a surprise when you're watching that. Did you shocked at what kids city he didn't they can do that and he. I mean they might do it again. This week against Tennessee. The fake punt though is like the stupidest plight after work if he middle Joop. It was stupid if it worked because it was a huge list in that moment a turning if it worked not one person would say how dumb was that and it almost Jay love fake punts. I don't want to disparage. Thank you know I like fake punts onside kick. When you criticize aside coaches for do it I feel like we're going to see less of it? I WANNA see more of it. There should be more fake punts. I think it was great. Great idea it was panned. Here's why did it. Because he knew his team wasn't as good as the other team team. You have to do things like that as an experienced flag football player if they would've won perhaps now sent a message to his is team staying. uh-huh we are up was twenty four seven at that point stairs still up Reno that no no no no. He knew he was overmatched. He knew they were better ahead to pull some tricks out of his hat. There are three possessions as you're watching watching the second quarter. Do you not feel like Kansas City was capable of coming mkx backed out point. They just scored once. I don't care there that can. Here's what else he knows he knows more than Tony. Romo and Romo was explained to us how they couldn't cover Travis Kelsey right. He was saying they can't do it. Kelsey is going to have a field day and Kelsey did before Deleo. Brian knows the fake punt was before Kelsey Hay day before the game four colony for the game started billy. O'Brien knew he was overmatched. He knew it. He knew he had to do things. Like fake punt trick. Plays the divet stupid. You know reverse pass thing thing you know he but he is. The the difference is this is deep analytical stuff. Mahomes is better than to Shawn Watson who had did. I ready to go on that Linda. I am they're better. The the chiefs Mahomes at his best is as good as anyone who's ever played I know he's only in his thirty year but he was. MVP last year and he's going to have a hall of fame career. He's just the most skilled quarterback I've ever seen. Aaron Rodgers is right there with with them as we saw later in the day but those to do things nobody else now I mean. He's great to nobody on his team. Besides lock it but but but if I I knows that the chiefs are better knows if things all being equal. He knows he's going to lose Can Be knows that's a problem. Why not fake fake punt? Because as I said Jerry you're up twenty four to seven. There's no need to do that to me to you. He knows that they're not at that. Point the chiefs had been throwing up over over themselves. I'm an expert on these good to the half did you not the one. Team was far-sighted rather because the chiefs at scored three touchdowns were capable of that. What are you missing thing? I'm explaining this to you like your five year old. Okay Swain football to me dad. A third round before the game began. Romeo Cornell defensive I was root root for Houston I like bill. O'Brien I love. They're just they're cool guys. They were totally overmatched from Eric. B Enemy The greatest coaching schnauzers and modern again. He history. We'll get get to that but as you're watching this. I know we've said this a lot over the last. I don't ten years the changing of the guard. The Patriots run his over the dynasties over. But as you're watching Mahomes just take his game to another level as you're watching Tennessee role you're saying and you know somewhere and you're seeing Andy. Reid won one game away from getting back to that Super Bowl. And you're thinking the these teams are are pretty good. These teams have got it all going on. Yeah and the Patriots. Do not have gone on the the quarterback trying to decide where he wants to play next year. The rumors are that it Andy Dalton might might be a good fit and the Super Bowl. MVP The reigning defending Super Bowl. MVP is jumping on the hoods of cars drunkenly jumping on the hoods of. You don't know drunkenly yes we do yes we do. I tweeted out that that video as you as you pointed out before we started this that He was partying and a Mexican restaurant with Paul Pierce. That's Margarita's that's a right. Yes I'm experienced. Never experienced jumping on cars art. has anyone ever jumped on a car. who wasn't drunk? You could be using some sort of drug certain things you do. Only when you're drunk critic right. Yeah it's like doing a shot but yeah well I guess parades different. Remember with the I guess he was on top of He was on top of the duck boat with a shirt. Remember that that pictures. He's he's almost thirty four. I would just give a little advice. I'm I'm thirty four. I still feel like junk car I still want. Is that what you were doing yesterday when you. When I didn't get my rundown this is this is what the scene to me is a week ago? KGO Radio Guy who bitches about format and cultural and stuff like that is going to bitch about a run down. You should be complimenting me for making sales for Your Business Week Kissing My. I asked him over the weekend the studio every day every day a week ago. I'm big on rundown. You'll have a run down every every night or morning or whatever so. I didn't see it last night at Theo. Probably working on it I get up this morning. Look no rundown. I know it's been a whole week. Today's one of those bullshit days but there's different stuff so alex and I got here and we right so you would've read y you have ripped it to shreds run ripped it. Those who are aware is a list of topics. And maybe some sound cuts that you have things like that good produces adduces. You always do run down. You want me to bring in a program director for the show to the entire market manager at you or did you not say two weeks ago that you were big on rundowns that we would around on every. I'm big on providing eventually one week later. We have no rundown and Alex scrambled the fact that I built a studio like I did everything. Ah I built it in here. Even though you said on subject you did a great job of building. The studio we're in the boardroom. Today I like to set a better than the wonderful Do you like it. Yeah sitting in naval having a discussion. We moved to a table where friends talks is important and people want to hear about are set up. We're in the board room with the Legacy Club. We don't the reason why we're broadcasting from here. People like the the setup right yea and Dave does a one. He's what he can't do saying saying I was drunk and passed out and didn't do the rundown. No I was not drawing kid gets a little baby issues with baby issues for sure. Just tell me why. There's no Rondo just because I didn't feel multiple things to say the first question is do you think if Dave would have done it if there wasn't traffic and you didn't force me to come in every day if we I did a show at a different studio I wanted to show at a different studio. What what studio do you want to do is show it? There might be another podcast or out there that I was. Okay see now. They're just trying to make excuses for like six hours in the morning here in full fairness before you go on. I would do that rundown probably just this morning I would have done it. You don't have to you know fucking do we've already determined that you're the only produce in the world doesn't own a printer which is interesting actually. Do One on one because Bob got Bob. The strategist gave you printer. Yes did you take it out of the box out of the box. WHO's GonNa give them paper praising craziest stories about how about printing three or four? Is that impossible. It's not impossible. You have a computer in front of you are so lazy. Ah Okay I love this. He promised rundown didn't do it. And now it's I'm Lazy S. Do you think if Dave was working kirk would he not printer rundown first of all he'd be walking around with a big bulge in the day. And you mean Louis. He worked for Kirk and blue. But that's obviously she is three good weeks dot com on no Dershowitz thing. Oh yeah good response to UC my response re tweet that he had a tweet yesterday. I said I I want fuck it number response. Do you want to ask them about the sexual assault allegation. No he was talking about he he just. He's trying to sell his book. So you say give me a chance. Read my book. I'm not making any money on it. Here's a dollar and I gave him shit for fire me. I'm not going to give you the exact. But that's that's what it comes down to the Jerry. If he was working for Kirk there would be a rundown down. Like when you call when you produce. PODCAST wasn't wasn't there was no run run down of course to was an easier to work with us. Jerry's very high purchase cogs dogs in that natural ability that much much easier so he would be like you know kirks producing Steve Old Ken he would be in fear of every day he would be laying in bed awake and I said what's going to yell at me. You said that you would. I fight back with Kirk by the way on dumb mission. Say That you say you sit at like five times China. Now you're live. That's because you're working for me now so you can do. You can fight back when you work for him. I'm sure you were a submissive little lapdog and just said whatever you need is working it for you now and you give a shit about printers paper rundowns. I'm not sales business. Get to the sales. I was only pat. You on the head your little baby. I you said you were going to run down. You didn't. That's all fine so alex and I get together before the podcast before the recording and made a little list of stories yes and came right number three now we have so alex is in charge of giving them assignment. He is a royal family correspondent. I hate deep reading about the royal family. I'm GonNa leave that to you. You're gonNa tell me like where she is now. Oh let me guess. Racism that played a part right allegedly. I don't even yeah well. Family is read that she's I don't even know what ratio is something who Megan Markle. She's black I'm not What will they don't even know but I did read that? Megan markle will not move to the United States. Will trump is president. Clinton stand Canada. That's important and cannons is going to foot the bill. She's just another literally a welfare queen. Just like how's it. How's it been being a welfare last couple of months for you but not bad for me? I'M GONNA be on the Royal Family with the Queen Mother. The Queen Mum. And all the princes and Dukes they're all welfare queens grievance right now it's basically that she wants to go back to Hollywood what it is right. She's changed signed a deal with Disney. You see that I think I saw that. Yeah I think she signed it. Don't you respect gotten away like feel like why am I respected way because I hate the royal family away from the she blew it up but it sounds like. She's quite the diva she's quite the home record. I shouldn't say quite the the Royal Family Wrecker and there's they're having big meetings now right there in panic. They're threatening to do an interview with Oprah no yes. Oh that's a hard hitting but also what happened with Prince Andrew at Jeffrey Epstein Net disastrous. BBC really embodies. Shoot amount of Christmas card because he was hanging twelve year olds if people have never been held accountable for anything they never faced any heated. It's like they're they're not smart smart people. Their parents are cousins. They're all they're all mutants you could see with Prince Charles. You think he's all there. It's just very silly. The whole thing holding suspend. I'm GonNa leave that to you. You're GONNA read up next time. You're here you're GonNa fill me and completely on the status of the royal family. We have you know what else we can do. Every day is a weather erupted because we have beautiful weather. If you're in the northeast it was seventy degrees and of course the liberals hand just enjoy it. It has to be Ono. We're all all going to die. You wanted these people who says if you believe if you believe in climate change if you're upset about climate change it can't enjoy the weather. Well here's here's a works with you. People People Alex. Yes if it's really cold and we mock you you idiots who think the world's GonNa end in eight years according to Bernie Sanders if you want you'll say it's not whether it's climate is different. You know so when it's nice and it's seventy degrees as it wasn't it was beautiful weekend. You people suddenly remake weather. Climate climate is weather and we have a professor. What's her name? Juliette Rooney Varga from U. Mass University of Massachusetts. Lowell Lowell. Who says he's part of their climate change initiative she uses? Yes Claudia's change. She's she a An expert a scientist because you know all the scientists agree they do now. They don't but you know climate Callahan favorite version of Callahan. Like your man Bernie Sanders Bernie Guy Right. Do goes eight years. No J. Question. Australia is on fire right. Yeah and we've already learned in California has been on fighting whether it's more severe question. Quick question for you Dr Rimmer thank you. Why is Australian fire because of the heat is so intense drought Jerry? No no no arson are. So you're I can't believe this is the issue issue the issue is you don't WanNa read. They knew back gap. Well The New York Times to degrade expose on that and why that the Murdoch papers are peddling a lie. That's been picked up other. Writing is been a hundred eighty arrested for arson. And I'm going to guess at least half of these climate and Kooks but here's my question because a lot of want this to be about climate change. It's not but they wanted a lot of people over the weekend. Tweet it out if you if you scream about climate change you can join the West the twice when I say why why not. Why can't you say that this is really frigging strange seventy in January now? Are you going to be out here. at my at an ice roof deck. By let me ask you this. Why can't why can't it be good thing? I think I know this. You're going to see this as nuts. Because all the scientists agree. Why can't climate change? Be a good thing. I mean. Obviously in some places you'll be able to grow crops longer get saying with me we want clean water. uh-huh clean air. We have it for to a large extent at least in this country. Do you think there's something you can do to affect the climate. Not Me individually jared. We're past the point of return year. Which is why we need to turn totally to a carbon neutral economy? That's the way to destroy the economy millions of jobs. We know that right so you're willing to destroy the economy. Do you think these used to have a we. We used to have that Gung Ho attitude that entrepreneurial Spirit Automobile Automobile Jerry. Why can't you want the automobile? No we should will transition to the next phase is a Green WanNa me. Why can't we we'd on? What is up? Why are you living in the past coal? You can even fill Gillette stadium with the amount of coal miners are often. This aren't that said the should learn the sixty five thousand of them. There are them all out of work transition them to green jobs. You just for anything don't you would you What would you call and mine or I'LL WE'RE GONNA clean and green economy the green economy such a load of Shit? And you know it and in your heart you know it you know. Ao See is full of Shit. You know that right. You know it but you're playing along. Do you think that we could. We could ban cars. Do you think expand cars Joe Biden said he wants yes he has a love us. You just deny that requires a coherent thought. I don't think that that's possible at this time you enjoy your weekend. I loved it. It was awesome did I. It was wonderful outside with shorts and a t-shirt January. It's what what are you crazy. We'll like January. I went for a little run down the river. Would you wear long pants seventy out. I know but still on paper but were you in shorts outside of your run. No okay see but people were people wearing shorts and put them away. I saw something January making a statement but the professor the good professors says I got out and enjoy the weather and it feels nice depth. Seventy degrees in January having Said said that A lot of us also have a little bit of an uneasy feeling. Is this something that is a sign of something bigger and maybe something wrong alleged to that to the Professor Juliet Rooney Varga No it's a wonderful thing. You should enjoy the weather and stop worrying about the end of the frigging why why stop. His kids are going to inherit Alex ranch again. A quick question for you buddy question. Do you think people in China or India. Ah Africa give a shit about your green new deal because that is because they're not on board it's pointless but that is not on power want them mm to do because they have such economic despair those countries. The people can't worry about a something like climate change because of worried about how they're going to eat you're worried about but that is exactly jerry how you want it. How the races wanted how the people in charge want it? They want people to be secure fury about their long term health. They they just want people to live day to day to not have a longer vision and not as is about what ends up yes. It's a thousand people. This is not right that sir. Leon Leonardo DiCaprio. He doesn't want to people in the third world to have electric city. Because that you know you you create electricity with coal. That's how he doesn't want that. Wendy say that or nukes. He doesn't want that well. The you know the Paris accord or any green new deal would be stopping. You know coal plants right and they don't want nukes so you can't people in Third World can't have what you have. That's what you want. You want them to go back to the Dark Ages and die of malaria. You don't want them to be. Have the modern conveniences. The we have. That's what you want again to go again if China India Africa Volley if they're not on board what's what's the point see that want to destroy our economy. Why was that nihilistic? You're the idiots who think that what is what is the. US like twelve fourteen percent of the world's served under thirty million people. You think if we do all these things ban plastic bags and ban a UH cars ban. Okay Jerry just throws together plastic bags a day and card to sign a few fun Biden about a month ago talking about getting Rid of autumn. We can take millions of vehicles off the road if we had high speed rail. I've been a champion of that for the last twenty five years we know oh the carters where we could do that and it would literally take millions of vehicles off the road. I here's here's though the leader it cannot come from like Breitbart or daily early as in from a real news organised. If you're biden saying it depends who reported it. Yeah I don't understand it. It's not spliced. It can't be posted by as someone who's been shadow if this small. Tiny percentage of people Americans do all these inconvenient things destroyed jobs destroy the economy. Get rid of cars. Get rid of plastic bags all all that nonsense and China and India. Don't do it you think it matters. You don't believe in the next sector and economy keeps me like that's going to going two two. That's a fact but you know you're okay with that because you believe with this moron. AFC said Barry participating economy. I mean my father still pays my taxes for me a lot and he rode your bike here this morning right. I know I drove my my home area. I love the way the barrel apart. That Moron Joaquin Phoenix. You could get that over the weekend. Got Arrested with chain in DC and says there's certain things we can do we can't do. I flew here today in a private jet to the protest you know from L. A. TO DC to protest. But I changed my diet. I'm not eating meat me more. What's Alabama think? If Joaquin Phoenix gives meet it affects the fucking climate. What's the point in doing anything? Then if that's if that's your argument but if more if everybody could question to eat I mean that is another thing jerry we everybody again. There's a billion being in some Chinese people. Are they going to give me. I think I don't think many people in rural areas of China eating meat anyway. That's kind of a luxury in places and a lot of places they don't eat meat like chickens. I I don't know I mean I know house Jerry expensive it is. I Love View Alex. You're like my own personal. AFC Bu Grad every time you open your multi. Bu Education is devalued our. That's I've learned the last couple months at the. Yeah you're right she is. I barely use a couple years older. Yes do you think you took similar courses you too. I did not take any of the listeners. Surprises is it never took a course in economics like she. Yeah and you still think she's I've been reading is still thinks she's smart. She is smart Ailsa yes. She's smart art. She has energy and she has excitement behind. I mean yes dumbest Iraq. She has energy and all that but she and she's the leader of your party now. She's the leader through the movement. She already admitted. Joe Biden is way too conservative for her or not crazy enough way to get divorced Bernie Sanders. Yes that's the energy your party. Seventy eight year old guy just had a heart attack. Who has more seventy year old communist as we said last week he didn't just have a heart attack? It happened a couple of months. Go Number One and the excitement way back. Then and the excitement Bernie the most donations from young people the most non white supporters burning the. Yeah and you think an easy all he would wall up trump in general dealt. I'm so convinced of it. He's the only one not lame that's the thing he trump you. Think trump got sixty three million votes. You'd think more than sixty five million people will vote for communist not a communist is and yes they will yes. I mean. Those debates will be priceless. Priceless but I do think the same excitement for Bernie is there now than there was. I wanted yes really. Yes yes I don't feel that at all right now. AFC endorsed him. I Omar endorsed him. Tweeden dorsal so alonzo was roaming the streets of Boston Presley. You're you're I did not. I could not make it now real Jimmy rallies you. I should've been there in a Omar had it had an event together. You should have attended this woman yeah she's your congresswoman. How come they were opinion? I think it was a day of mourning. There's still still there's still mourning Sola Sulejmani so many I can't saw meaney yesterday's last week is telling me is the most dangerous man. The plan came into remember his name. Now I remember but just keep messing in an up replacements named Salami. Oh he's he's he's next on the death list by the way and I. I'm more convinced than ever that you and your our people are rooting for Iran. You hate trump so much that you're disappointed the at a great week. You're disappointed that no Americans are no allies. died in in these in these missile attacks. You want so badly for trump to have a bad guy when I love this fair so childish. I mean you can't say this guy who obviously obviously had no idea who Salvemini is. He can barely spell Iran. I mean he orders a missile at. MSNBC report in his Pajama Pants. So the second most powerful guy. You've read the country you brought up. He killed terrorist. That's a good thing right. Alex see but the world doesn't exist in a vacuum Jerry. They're good to actions. Is it a good thing in a vacuum yes us but unfortunately the world does not exist. Was it a good thing. When Obama ordered the hit on bin Laden got a good thing different was that a good? You think different al Qaeda is eight. Jerry yes it was. It's a different thing Jerry I. It is not a sovereign state. We took down the second most powerful guy in Iran they will Iran Mr in retaliation. Iran is a state that sponsors terrorism. This was the leading terrorist in the world. He's a state sponsor. I got new series Jerry State sponsored terrorism if we if we kill where we're GONNA kill we're going to kill the military generals of every single country in the world that sponsors. I'm SORTA Darius it hurts you. Doesn't it that trump had a good week that he get rid of this terrorist that that it's a good thing that the people in Iran people in Tehran are celebrating their celebrating the death of this monster. It's nonsense it's propaganda from the New York Times and an NBC that this was the most revered man in Iran was not like that. But I just keep going back and we go to the central problem. You've been saying for years you want out of the Middle East yet. How does assassinating the second most powerful guy in Iran get us out of the Middle East? Does it does it keep us. There was a drone strike. I love those don't have repercussions in fact obamacare. It was a Bama's thing was you know won't blowing and that's not winning and not as Pakistan. That is a terrible black American and this kid an American kid with a drone strike love. You Act like a man defend a bomb that I'm absolutely not as a black mark. Lamont is record. My Man Obama will defend them. Yeah this alert Larry Harm's way you expand you expand one branch. I want to leave the Middle East. I think this is a good time. They voted us out there celebrating in Iran. Underselling Room. What we did? I'm leaving. I'm leaving. Here's the thing we're not gonNA leave the Middle East. Probably not use parliament votes out in Iraq. Trump goes no. Now we're we're GONNA threaten to take them out what we should is tiring going on the new green new deal and they're going to lead to the they're causing this apocalyptic climate change. Why don't we take China as if it's existential threat? That's what I keep hearing. That means life or death right so if what China's doing in India's doing it let's leading to the death of all of us. Why don't we attack them? How many times tomorrow do you think Democrats can say the words existential on a debate? Stage the Knicks debates Tuesday. Tomorrow WPRO Tuesday Callahan. PODCAST watch party. Sure right here. Your House Jerry Come on over Alex. I'll be watching. I love watch I am this I I. It's a quandary for me because I want trump versus warren. That would be. I can't get enough of her pain. I want her to suffer. I wanted her to be embarrassed right which which she will be every time she talks. It's embarrassing it's cringe trump against Elizabeth Warren with that will look like the second quarter of the Kansas City. Houston game that will be. Just ask kicking like you've never seen before she won't be able to handle it. I need that I want. I think trump would beat Warren. I mean it's like embarrassing it's like it's not it's Bernie Sanders offers is is the guy who's who can take that energy he actually believed guy so detestable why so detestable. Because he's he's because my question with Buddha judges what why are you running for president like what is your. Why do you not goes of course but I know why Bernie Sanders is running? Doesn't want to get into politics. The beginning he doesn't always been fighting ever Torino shoes. Do you know what he says. He advocates on behalf of good of of good causes. What's wrong? He was kicked out of a commune because he refused to do his chores. When he was young he was literally a Communist? Who wouldn't do is always a born leader or net and they kicked him out but but you know Buddha judge is I think your best shot of winning the general election? He can't win Election Indiana. I mean Kowal Upton racy ran or would you think Bernie treasuring anywhere anywhere oven for Monte Michigan in two thousand sixteen one Wisconsin in two thousand sixteen eighteen days.

Ah Yes that's your one of your many employers yes big Alexander always say you're a good writer you do a good job. It's your second stint at Forbes. Right my second stint. They brought me back back from my intersection of culture. Starting with Barry Armstrong. WB and W business while he taught me all. You need to know about what's what's your what's your job. Tell me your job description Forbes. I read about the intersection between sports culture in media sports culture and media. That sounds like a good beat you but you as usual your first call him back you go off the rails. You're not happy with the Rooney rule. which is the rule in the NFL? When there's a coaching opening they have to interview a minority candidate? I used to think that was dumb and it was just symbolic but I understood. I forget who explained at one time somebody who was you know. Romeo Cornell Cornell Some African American coach explained how it gets you some experience and interview and get your name out there. You know the the the every year this. His name's the become the hot names for you. Know potential coaches This year was this guy. Matt Rule Right From Baylor is always always somebody whose name is mcdaniels. Josh McKay has been there but how do you get your name out there. One ways to interview and to you know interview for any opening but you know interview for a couple of different jobs you become one of the names and I said if that works if that gets guys names out there if they get experience interviews. What's it hurt? Maybe it's maybe maybe team has their their guy in mind like Whoever like Carolina and Matt Rule But they they have to interview a minority candidate or a couple and if they're not if it doesn't offend them who am I to complain? You know if they liked the experience if I think it helps hopes good. What's wrong with that? You probably thought the Rooney rule was good in at least in theory. Now you just think it's not enough. What's it supposed to do? It is supposed to T- see for five minutes it well. It is supposed to result in more coaches of color getting higher for the head coaching openings. And it's failed in two thousand and three there were three black head coaches renewals instituted now in two thousand twenty. They're at three black coaches in the league over the last three years. During twenty new coaches hired only two of them are black. The rule ten percent percent is failing in the League is seven general public. It's twelve percent black thirteen percent black. So it's closed you would agree that in the NFL League that seventy percent black hole dog is a little different. No I will not absolutely not just the opposite. Tell me what that has to do with anything. If seventy percent of the players are black why do you have to have whatever whatever percentage of the fundamental disagreement but its representation is good and it's gone. You're when you're managing your work. Are you serious so a a guy like bill belichick. You'd say the greatest coach ever. You'd agree with that right. I mean he's up there with Adam I mean so bill belichick couldn't play in the league. He was probably not even a good player. Wesleyan right so you think that Guy Andy. Reid couldn't play in the league. Pretty Damn good coach. You would deny them an opportunity because they didn't play now. When did I say that? Well you just said that the number of players who are black is is a factor in matters. Why does it matter? Because seventy percent black. A lot of black players three players are going to get into coaching right. Yeah different and they're not advancing through the ranks. Jerry how is it that we had only two black offensive coordinators in the week in. Four blacks quarterback owns league me on defensive side of the ball. What is it's not fifty fifty but there's a lot more black defensive coordinator me a quick list of blacks who've been discriminated against in the coach? Well here's a question. Is Eric B enemy again. Not Getting head coaching job. What do you mean again? How old is he was a second? Go around he's interviewed for seven openings. The last two years nobody is so w rounds would rather have the vikings offensive coordinator Kirk. Cousins doesn't throw the ball more than five yards down the field. Let me get the Guy Devices this game plan you the guy who calls place or Patrick Mahomes. How does that make any any sense? I don't know I don't know anything about them. What's the new coach's name Kevin Defense? Keep the fan summit. I've been why do you think he wasn't a good interview. They just hired him because he's white. But don't you think it's strange Eric. Enemy you saw that chiefs offense scores a million points in the second. I mean that is an unbelievable offensive attack. He calls praise. Andy Reid is doing all all the last two. That's like saying Gordon. Doug Peterson and Matt Nagy got job. That's like saying Gerard Mayo. She got a job because the Patriots defense this year it was great. It was fourteen points Tabei heaters jobs but the enemy hasn't okay. How did nagging and Peterson do they degrade so those are good? You wouldn't Zabi enemies done great sure. And he's young. He'll get his chance. I assume unless there's some issue I don't know but I'm not gonNA accuse whoever the the browns coach the Panthers Dansk owners of of racism. You will I mean you don't need any saying there's an institutional bias against when you have coaches of car not rising through the ranks but again Dan if by your definition playing should qualify for coaching. I look at it this way. Bella Chicks coaching career started when he was like twenty. twenty-one if you're you know a player you're playing for ten years twelve years you're thirty four thirty five before you start. Coaching Bella check as a head start. What percentage of coach accent F. L. Players? I think not many not many of his reason for that a they. They're busy playing guys like ballot l.. Check and read and Carol. They're they're coaching. But by the way it doesn't only have and maybe they made money and they don't WanNa coach. Maybe they don't do you think Larry Fitzgerald. The chair wants to coach of either way though. Jerry doesn't have to be ex players like how come you can't have the black version of Bill Belichick. The Guy who didn't play wasn't very good a you know Romeo Cornell that's the only thing more of those guys are out there of course so they're out there going past owners of NFL a racist. I didn't say that but are there but how many NF owners are black. Or How many zero. And if so that means at their inner circles with the League is owner of Color Right. Okay so you want. I mean I'm just trying to understand your logic J I know you like to count seaport like the goal after this on the air here. How many are there? No if these owners they're not looking outside of their inner circles they're not looking outside of the club. The Rooney rule was supposed to do that in his fail. You now have these token interviews and that's the issue in my point is if we actually want to diversify the coaching ranks. You would have the Rooney rule not just mandate interviews but mandate Eric B and by the way across the coaching ranks. Why don't they expand Rooney rule to every coach opening not just head coach and GM? Why not linebacker coach? That's it's going to happen because You and Peter King and Adam Schefter all the heavy hitters are calling for that Calling for only makes you wouldn't that be away then can get more black coaches or coaches of color in the door. Get them within the owners circles. I mean not seems to me like a no brainer Eric Enemies fifty. so He's no kid. Come on. That's what you're going to hit your wagon to Eric. He's the latest example. It's the latest example of that. Yes yes and why. Why can't Josh mcdaniels job must be terrible interview? I mean what do you think. He doesn't use a week or two ago. We don't WANNA blame. His wife wasn't his wife life with the entire day to. He's from this issue. Probably you know the little woman went shopping or something you know what carefully broader in the interview with them sponsor. We're GONNA pull out with comments like that but it was part of that clip. Just kidding. I'm just kidding you deeply regret you know she. I saw that she went on the jet. And what to Cleveland. But I think she's From you know they're so he probably had family friends to visit. Whatever I don't think she was in on the interview but he did not interview? Well we can agree with that agree on that right. I agree with that. Yes and there are no openings. Unless Billy O'Brien gets fired there's always one weird opening. We know one strange development. Maybe here because ask you know. Greg Bernard said ballot check. He's on the he's implying he leaves. Maybe we will be the GM of the New York giants and the only way you could keep brady eighty or get brady to stay would be to But it's funny. Because last week there was a rift between Brady mcdaniels so now all of a sudden we're just we're just getting ready DEVDAS. Make up not a riff now. Bella Chicken mcdaniels that he wouldn't let him interview early in the week. He let Joe Judge. Who's now the giants coach? Who's just I mean? Talk about a transformation. He went from being a nobody special teams coach Anew that's another example. Give me the black version of judge. I mean this guy coach the Patriots wide receivers. This there was such a great unit. Let's give this guy a head. Coaching Peter King has got a detailed report on his interviewing with the with the giants and Mississippi state super to get off the train station with the wrong Penn station. And there's three Penn station you've got off at the wrong one to uber to wherever we did the the interview but the Mississippi State Athletic director was like on a private jet waiting for Joe. Judge hoping that he wouldn't get the giants job because he was going to get the Mississippi State job. I didn't know he went there. I didn't know anything about him. He was special teams coach. Just another guy now. He's the hot new thing. Obviously the giants coach China's. This is a big job. And he's on the back page of the tabloids but the pressures on I mean they don't have a lot of patients in New York. We'll see does he's making five million a year that we know that we know why because he's white right. I'm just saying there is no black equivalent to Joe. Judge someone with a very a paper thin resume. Now you're going to coach from the most prestigious. He just franchises bellichik. Everyone is still looking for the next ballot check. The next you know certainly helps genius. You know hidden genius guy would you just emerges as this brilliant strategist and his brilliant like Bob Snared Castro strategists care always mistaken for Bella check. Pick up but judge Joe Judges The guy you think it's too late now right. There's no openings billy. O'Brien gets fired as you said it looks. It's all set the only at five openings. All all white guys. Yes I know Ron Rivera was higher redskins. Yeah he's black. He's not a person of color. I believe it was panic. Yeah that's good. Yeah after on up on my twitter but we'll see you. Oh you want like retreads. No I want New People to get opportunities which is why I want more again coaches and outside of this now we get to your solution in yours. If you haven't read Alex Column. He's he's got a solution. You make a rule that forces teams to hire black coaches. Why say those were unusual? I'm operating appear everyone else's down here right because the other point is of course that would never happen. I don't think owners who operate their teams as a Thomas entities by the way okay except for the TV revenue. All these great capitalist men split it like Socialists. I love that but besides that how would it work. I'm still trying to figure out that the rule would call it. What the the the reamer rule? Yes and an opening will come up and the team would have to hire black coach. You would have to have a certain amount of black coaches or minority coaches on your staff. So it's not the head coach. Just a certain amount on your team has twenty five coaches. I haven't I haven't mentioned numbers yet. Seventy Percent Lot Birmingham -firmative that is how a lot of affirmative action programs work right. You set limits because people are getting opportunities. So how do you eliminate the opportunity gap you put in mandates sats. How you if you actually want all member? That is what you haven't percents. I'm not willing to comment on that. This plan is still under development. And when you have it's a it's a it's a philosophical question Jerry if you want to close an opportunity gap. How do you do that? You Institute mandates to get disability. He knows an opening say like the Patriots and Bill Checks available in Lawrence. Taylor is available. You would say the rule would say you have to hire Lawrence Taylor. No the rule would say have X.. Amount of coaches on your staff. I don't know what that number is. No but you have to have a certain amount on your but obviously they'll never happen because the owners would never go for it to get delicate. Never propose something like that and the owners go against it. The optics would be awful so it's never going to happen. They're going to do what you should if you want to be realistic. Make the Rooney rule applied to assistant coaches. That would would make sense. It'd be more guys getting that interviewing experience. It wouldn't be as high profile but it's something that they could. Do you remember when they drafted. I I don't know if you remember this Michael. Sam drafted ramp okay. The intersection of sports and culture. That's right we all agree. I I am Sam was a stiff. He couldn't play but I never saw him playing he. The rams did a favor for the league. The League wanted him drafted. They wanted wanted to appear enlightened in woken and they drafted him in the sixth round. Was it yeah. So he ended up. He was a bust. Couldn't play it all. They knew it but they said answer late late round pick it will keep everyone happy. ESPN was happy. They hit him kissing his boyfriend at the you know when he got the news and everyone all in all the the media with thrilled. You were happy right. I was very thrilled thrilled. I just coming out myself at the time so inspiring that Michael inspired you know but I was I was I was the first year I was actually. Actually I think yeah. Where does their team fourteen? I don't know so. He was obviously just a token away. He couldn't play. They knew it but they drafted him anyway to advance the the cause. And you're okay with that. I don't know if that's true or not. You know those theories. Why cadel told the Rams out to Michael Sam and on hard knocks or something like that I? I thought he was gonNA wasn't he the big twelve defensive player of the year right. Yes yeah so maybe. They thought he was sending me because he was on the SEC but he was on the other side the other side of the The the other end was guy played for the Patriots. Play for the jets. And he was a stud and so he freed beat him up to rush the passer and he had a bunch of Saxe but everybody in football knew we couldn't play everyone knew and they didn't want to appear that they were discriminating against him by not drafting him so they drafted him late cut him and everyone was happy. I guess it'll appear like that. It'll be the league will make some kind of I don't know if it'll be mandated they'll be telling teams you have to do this the pressures on they pressures on from Alex Reamer and Adam Schefter and Peter King and so many others. You have to do so I think you'll you'll be on the right side of history. Oh as usual I always yes. I think you're GONNA get your green new deal but you're going to get your new Rooney. The enemy gets hired. It's worth it. I'd sacrifice degree new. I don't know where We'll end end up if he has another week like he did yesterday. Another game like he ended yesterday I'm rooting for them. By the way lots of people rooting for Tennessee. Why you WANNA see a guy run the ball thirty five times take? Here's what I do when I have no team in the playoffs. I root for quarterbacks I like watching good quarterbacks. Lamar Jackson was a blast to watch. Why would you want him out? Why Defense I mean run the ball? Oh Oh that's that's manly and Macho defense and run the ball. UH-HUH I was rooting. I mean don't Rufa Jim John Harbaugh certainly don't Roofer. You Know Baltimore for John Harbaugh. I mean he's seems like a dink deflate gate. But I do roof Lamar Jackson. I mean he is the greatest running quarterback I've ever seen. He's fast like vic but he's got moves like I mean real moves is he can just you guys out of their shoes. It's fun to watch minus Ryan Tannehill every quarterback right. That's involved right. Tam Do anything he just doesn't screwed up. Tannehill is getting being like the best publicity for doing the exact same thing. He did love it if he made more than generating gifts. You get used to it because if he wins I don't think he will. But if he wins what are they. Touchdown underdog. He goes back to Miami to play the Super Bowl. I don't want that you really want Derrick Henry running bull run the ball three times in the super bowl is that a real story is that would that be a real storyline. The return of Ryan. Tannehill me. Hey how sad is that. I want to see Patrick Mahomes Travis. Kelsey and tyree kill in the Super Bowl of ours. You really don't want that showed. Oh that that is the greatest show on turf right now. and I wouldn't mind seeing Jimmy Garoppolo against him but Jimmy Garoppolo did did nothing the other day. Nothing basically glorified managers while the same as Ryan turntable over he's overrated Jimmy. Lloyd decided that decided that yeah. I think he's turnovers from me. I wanted I thought they could've traded Garoppolo to Houston for the pick became to Shawn Watson the tenth or Twelfth Pick. That's when I I was rooting for. I still think he could bell. Chick took a second round pick out of spite. He wasn't happy that he had to trade him so we just traded him to the NFC got a second round pick pick clearly. It wasn't enough but I mean I like watching Shawn Watson played too but he's not on the same level as Patrick Mahomes. It's just not now because there's an Eric b the enemies but you watched Watson yesterday and I don't know if the term is happy feet but every time he dropped back he was jumping around thinking. What about running the ball mahomes drop species great runner too but his first thought is to chuck it? Yeah and you have to do that. Nfl I mean. I think Shawn Watson you know in college could run against anybody and it was just a great weapon. It's not doesn't work that way in the NFL. No it doesn't accept Lamar Jackson again. No Saturday twelve one hundred yards on the ground and he. He was not good though now throwing the ball he choked. I mean the ravens choices that I mean I think that comes with being the first seed planted home. Everyone's expecting you to the Super Bowl. They the pressure got to them but if the titans. AFC just seems so weird like Ravens Titans to me right. That's like a one o'clock game with Dan fouts and you're like like I'll skip those folks. I mean watching Lamar Jackson. Those guys I mean he doesn't he doesn't have the weapons the mahomes either but I think mahomes against either Aaron Rodgers or Jimmy Garoppolo. It'd be is a damn good would be very good. TV The as you said the only one who could screw up a super bowl. I think of the titans well. If you're in Boston Sports Talk Radio Still Jerry. You would want a titans for the united suit. Y Jimmy Rabl able come. I don't care nothing against a nothing against A Ryan Tannehill or or Logan Ryan Bogan Ryan. I mean I don't WanNa hear all these these tributes to the The smashmouth titans and now the old fashioned and that kind of thing I like when teams throw it fifty times I like watching. What moms did yesterday? That's funny you were you. Were you be missing out on the Super Bowl this year. Me Not going. Oh yes you're going missing only went when the Patriots were in it so I wouldn't career. Saudi invited US last week straight weeks. Who des Yeah some- somebody we know war? Don't you could get us a room and they were working on getting credentials. And I'm like talk is weeks away so we're not going. You should have said yes what I mean I never rarely as I can't believe you're now that is the strangest thing gets everyone. TURNS THIRTY GETS married. Has Children kids any he said. Here Nazis still gets drunk and jumps on cars. Well I want to jump on Christ I still get drawn drink to get drunk. That's the do you think eshelman jumping like jumped up and down around. Why don't we have video? Why doesn't teams video? He was part Oh he was obviously partying and that's his staples like splint crazy. Everyone is a phone. You're on would ever Rodeo drive. WHATEVER SUNSET BOULEVARD IN LA partying with Paul Pierce? Somebody can't catch that on video. What's what's his peers video point? Is there anything on that or no. Just Kim drunkenly person you'll notice all my hardest uh-huh we sure he was drunk. Eh That's Giuliano. Mon Eight forty one. Is that where we determined I. The the video was posted at eight forty one pacific time so it could have been taking team minutes later the LAPD HE D is taking them into custody. We don't have all the details of the arrest. I'd like to find out if if you know he was. You know drunkenly explaining himself to the cops or if the cops you know have some details of just how messed up. He was but it feels like one of those off seasons doesn't it like things are go wrong for this team and I hate to say because it sounds trite. And we've done this for years but it feels like the end of the road you know. They're they're not just because has a drunken Julian Edelman jumping on a car and Brady's leaving. But then you look at this today in the Boston Herald Karen Garrigue and it has the latest list of potential replacements and I would say cross in a drew brees fullest. He's a free agent probably not. I don't think he's coming here now. But what if Phil rivers came here. Deliberating liberal eighty like rivers Brady River swap rivers signs. A one year dunk lashed to you. But he wasn't much better brady was better though way better weapons. So what's the what's the purpose of bringing in like a guy like river Andy Dalton for one because you don't think stems ready and you draft a QBC have stained glass thirty nine. So are you saying he's not ready and he'll eventually be the not ready to be the guy he's not ready in the eventually will be. The guys needs another year and put them in there and throw them in there. It's just great. I mean you see how bad the weapons you want to play with You know Nicole Harumi hilarious. Brady leaves all these crazy wide receiver. But I don't know where the Dalton rumor came from Peter Kay's the latest to mention it that that would be he stinks. I mean that would be a disaster is better than like. Aj McCarron Karen or not better than Teddy Bridgewater not better than Teddy Bridgewater. You should like teddy bridgewater a man of color. QB exciting superbowl. We could have patchy. Essentially he's the best backup who's looking to become a starter again out there. Yeah wouldn't that be. I don't WanNa say exciting but it'd be better than Jarret stood wouldn't it. I think anybody would be more exciting than jared stood up. Even Philip Rivers for a year I think would be more exciting. And then there's you know case keenum and there's all kinds of UH potential free agents. I think it's going to be one of them. It's not gonNA BE TB twelve. It'd be exciting. Convince be interesting to see someone else play quarterback for the patrimony interesting. It will not I mean yes it will be removed want it. I just want to raise for one more year. Yes yes he'll be forty Ford. You think he has more than one year left. I think two years I don't you think he's going to be a good win. Twelve inch four this year. You think he's going to be a good. NFL quarterback at forty four. I mean If we're going on past quarterback evaluations I can't say yes at forty two forty two. I'm fine with the weapons. That he was well convince is going to have good weapons. I'm hoping they'll put some weapons based on this year. It really comes down to whether or not Brady is gonNA is okay taking gently less because the Patriots isn't it like already like six and a half million dollars cap charge no matter what happens with Brady on after the free agency period. It's a thirteen plus million dollars charge. Plus whatever salary would be so if it's resized besides the Patriots it's going to be before the start of the official league year and it would have to be for significantly less than he could get elsewhere because the patriots are not going to allocate more the thirty percent of their capital. Somewhere right now this is you know thirty two. NFL teams up. Saying this ten or twelve are in a boardroom. I'm like this we're in the boardroom. At the lovely legacy club. Yes and there's like Sistan. GM's over here. And there's an owner at the end of the table and in mallow when I was say at least this week though it maintained this over there if you want to. We got plenty of eminent. Thank you for you. We skip one. Nothing here EMINEM's peanut an regular which you like better becoming never gave me any snacks like that. Do you like Pinot Noir in Oregon. I like regular. We'll get you some regular EMINEM's which color Green for the green deal. But there's these meetings all across the NFL and the name. Brady's coming up many of them. I mean I'm not saying you know Kansas City your Green Bay or San Francisco but there's teams that are saying. What do you guys think there's GonNa be two or three teams that are going to go? Let's do it. Let's make an offer and when that happens it's over here not football-related in any capacity all marketing related. Yeah I mean we know the situation. We know that's I forget who sounds seems one of these people said you know that's the spot for him the rent The chargers Christian Fauria said his wife doesn't like La. But but is that really that inside information I forgot the factor that what is life like you know she does probably like Miami Llorca. She probably loves my Miami. That's we we had. We had somebody here at the legacy club whispering in our area the other day saying. Watch out for Miami. They're going to wait for this crappy ass dolphins team. You can sell yourself cell phone anything you could say you know. Look at that team They have better whatever better tight ends than the Patriots. He'll say you know better running back. Whatever you you'd say you know? The Patriots are down. It's a winnable division. Who's WHO's who which the dolphins is better than anybody on the Patriots? We'll come up with some great question. We'll talk yourself every time. A guy goes to free agency whether it's football baseball. It doesn't matter you could talk yourself into going elsewhere. What about for the next chapter after Brady which by the way I think he's just as passionate about TB twelve years football so he launched? He's willing. He's playing here in New England and Boston so he watches. TV Two of them Boston he'd be willing to go to a Miami or so. We can launch TB twelve there so you think that's is objective so I'm saying pointing the speculation game from a marketing perspective if to propel his Na- his second career I could see him pulling that dumb. I would do something I mean. It's I I wonder when you think of like whatever Carolina or of and on Minnesota would is that a nonstarter does he say it's an my wife doesn't want to go there my business. I don't need to be in a big market working in a kind of a a place where I can not just promote. TB Twelve. Just a place where I can be. You know the big. The big fish wasn't thing like gives Brady is he okay ending his career. They second rate franchise. which the chargers are? I mean. They haven't had a actual home game ever since they moved to La. They can't get any of their own fans hands. Brady be okay ending his career without ever playing an actual home game again. What about playing in Vegas with the Raiders San Jose Altuve? I don't think vacant guy could tell me where he has. A lot of. I think he has a lot of San Francisco for the buffet. There Thompson. All you can eat. He's not going to San Francisco. You Hey guys following the rundown listen to yourself with scratchy if you guys fault it that's right I'm looking for the run was it. It's if you fall date it was is in your email somewhere. Tom Brady does not call the back anymore. He's done with them but he's still hooks up with scratchy every week does his Hit on Westwood. One you'll be a free agent in mid March to the Patriots. Are you right now. Negotiating with the Patriots treats the contract things. I think a week after the season I I would say these. Things haven't even started to pick up so that's really not my concern at this point. It's it's been about decompressing and yes in my mind a little bit and rest of my body and spending time with the people who have supported me over the last six months you know he. I give scratchy credit. Their friends their business partners. He manages to ask all the questions. Some we've managed to ask and Brady doesn't like answering answering them but but Jim Gray does ask the relevant questions. And that's the only question that matters in fact how tedious is going to get. He's not going to make a decision until March now. Oh it's GonNa be every day for the next two months. I know somebody used to write five of those things today. It's all made up. All the Shit is made right on point there. Are you saying earlier like Brady like now. What's the thing mcdaniels embellish check? Don't like each other. It's there's all sentences Haniel made up like check wouldn't let early in the week when teams teams. Were you know. Carolina was hiring in giants. Obviously what was the thought process. Cleveland what what's the big deal. We already got eliminated. Why can't mcdaniels go on a different? Tony Cleveland Tired. Stefanski PENSKE MINNESOTA. so He'd beat him just say it was a great interview. Josh mcdaniels may have wanted that job. And you didn't get the chance because like with with With rule and Carolina just blown away or Joe judge the giants so he didn't get a chance to interview for those jobs and you know what if I'm mcdaniels. I'm and thinking I don't have many more chances. Because he's been riding. Brady's coattails just like Billy O'Brien didn't Charlie wasted and everyone else. Brady's made a lot of coaches a lot of money. How long long does that go along? Does that gravy train go to believe the reports and make Dino's gets paid a couple million a year. I mean Brady's already made him a lot of money really hasn't been head coach since stems Matama ton of money and he's and he's all set he said but if he wants to be head coach again I think he does his interviews for these interviews. Yeah Colts job. It literally took head coaching job. Right years years old brady comes back next to you on say leafs Brady leaves or comes back and sucks. Does mcdaniels still hot guy. No I mean your enemy. We'll move took up. That's going to be barometer next year. A crappy patriots offense led by case keenum. Josh mcdaniels gets a job and doesn't will reconvene. Thanks for your pal. If they win next week I think they will go to the Super Bowl. You're going to have two weeks of of hose. Jonah's before Eric B enemy because all you moon moon bats in the media again the lineup sitting at the table. You're GONNA sit there and say on you feel like you've been slighted feel like you know the League is Sherman Ans- The issue and it will become the theme of the week.

Dairy thinks thinks it may have been a scam right so New York Times instead of calling the cops or the FBI. He called The New York Times and said they'll get to the bottom of the employer employer. They don't want him to be guilty anyway. We're hoping he is. We Have A. We have a debate tomorrow night. We do tomorrow Tuesday night Tuesday with what free candidates right.

It's auto it. We bought like two percent. He's not involved right billions combined. No He's not no good good. He sucks but anyway. We'll we'll be watching that talk about that next next time we get you in here. Alex do we have the Jeremy. roenick sound We talked about Roenick when he got in trouble. It was absurd. He's a friend of Catherine tappin's they work together. They're good friends. They travel together. You don't close. You have to be to someone go on vacation together. I mean wasn't she third dealing with Roenick and his wife this good friends with his wife and he joked joked about No threesomes it was a joke. He's kidding their friends and it was on Maha hockey guys do all right. It was UNIN Barstool Correction Shit. Yes yeah it was on Syndrich chick. What's your favorite? PODCAST actually is producing as a rundown legendary hard worker. She heard that produce deuce owns a printer. So roenick goes on their jokes around about hanging with Catherine Tappin the network he works for. NBC OF COURSE NBC. They don't have any tolerance for sexual shenanigans at NBC. Right Matt Lauer doing anyway. The bill cosby show. But here's the question. Are we gonNA play the sound. So is apology. He's leaving us. This is a hammer. He did a video apology. Trying to save Davis Skin to apologize to NBC. Sports Catherine Tappin Patrick Sharp and Carter for some insensitive comments. They made on a recent podcast. I never meant to offend. Anyone and I definitely went too far for that. I deeply regret it stock. This hurts because Roenick tough guy right you see. He's got like the railroad tracks going across his face. He's played with a Pre Okun John's elbow out. Yeah he's a local guys a little crazy. He was joking around with spitting Chiklis guys and now he has to bow down and kiss the ring. That is sickening. I I would love to see the text messages that he sent to each one of those people before he did this apologize. This is this is too bad as I hate. When you know the cancel culture makes you know real men like this just just turtle? I was drinking with them the night before this happened. You kidding yeah. Did you have any cars though drinking with Jeremy Role. He was drinking in the bar that I was at interesting. I was literally sitting next to go up. Big Fan Big Fan. Jr you call. John was checking into the hotel and I said from Massachusetts. Just gotTa say hi. That's exactly why why. Why do you have to say hi from Massachusetts because he's from Massachusetts side? I mean your hockey fan. Maybe I wouldn't say hi suspension over and the ways doing I haven't seen him on TV. Okay so here's the thing that would happen. Tap and kind of threw him under the bus. She had no choice. What does she actually was a shared it publicly? She she was my guess. I'm just guessing Alex just get. Here's here's the question. I would know how people talk to the guy like Jeremy Reineck if you're offended by that type of stuff. Well maybe you're offended that he publicized is didn't it kind of odd cast. This is a real day out in the world. And if you if if something you're doing is I know and I don't. I don't think people are going to be offended but anyway this apologies embarrassing. I assume he had to do it. Agent is lawyers. Said you gotTa do it to get your job back. Let's hear the rest from jr her everybody involved and I'm so thankful for their loving and gracious acceptance of my apologies includes family and friends. I've always tried to act professional. I've always tried to entertain. And this time I went too far and I won't make sure in the future the mindful of people's feelings the sensitivities. He's my co workers and all you my loving fans I hope to see you on air soon. Hope you can accept my apologies. I you're one of his loving fans Culina. Can you feel better now. You accept it Do you have the actual comedy said about Catherine Tapping. Because I couldn't believe it. I tweeted about lots of people. Did I read it and I said this can't be all he said. Initially here roenick suspended offensive sexual innuendo and all that caffeine tap. And you're thinking he went over the line he did not he did nothing wrong. Nothing and yet Jeremy Roenick. WHO's like a stunned in a superstar? You know former former superstar bad ass hockey player is on his frigging knees begging these these people in NBC for mercy. I see these people who enabled Matt Lauer who gave him his own rape room at the NBC headquarters these people who knew it. Bill Cosby was doing these people who protected Harvey Weinstein. But I felt that way as well originally but then I thought about it and I said if you do actually want to change the culture. Don't you have to start start somewhere. Like I agree and allow your today. Show host to rape in terms of I of course but just because that happened in the past Kim. NBC never try to rectify to to police like talk like like talk on Pont. What do you think that if Matt Lauer is working today would he get away with reading coworkers? No but if Ronan Farrow hadn't done the story of course well he would be yet had it. But how all these things can in the what are these organizations big corporations. They don't self police very well. It takes an outside. It depends who it is depends it is a good liberal. Like Matt Lauer or Harvey Weinstein. They have his back by the way. ABC News which sat on the Weinstein story which added Epstein ABC. The right the story they knew knew about connection to Clinton they knew everything they they just did a two hour special. They mentioned Bill Clinton for three seconds in a two hour special Clinton's integral here because that's the reason people protected Epstein because of Clayton one of his many powerful friends including the president himself right but bliss is covered in this. This network is still is still protecting the Clintons. Yeah I mean well all you need to do is you. If you read the the catch and kill Ronan Farrow's book to me. One of the most gross details in it is that he was also working on a book about US foreign policy he was set to interview Hillary Clinton about it. In the second second you got coast to Weinstein the Clinton people not only the interview but shunned him right in. Spokesperson was calling them with these vague. Threats I mean and Hillary where he goes on Howard Stern you talk about Stern Ashgabad Epstein to ask her about this skinny. How do you not ask her about that? I mean because he's why I mean Weinstein according to Ronan Ronan Farrow was advising Hillary Clinton during the campaign in twenty six that Stern had hillary that very week we learned that Hillary was at Epstein's New Mexico ranch and we learned Hillary was protecting Harvey Weinstein up. Stern asked about neither ask about nothing. All he did was sucker toes. It was nauseating nauseating but you know. That's the new. How hamptons do we have What he initially said? Because what what Roenick do you have. The I was the king of Portugal. I heard it's phenomenal when you walk into every place and you have to blonde bombshells on each side and nobody. I'm telling you year chess pop. Pop saw 'cause they don't even know who they are over there so they're just like who's this. WHO's that guy? That guy must be somebody. I'm the Pekka loss. I say. Damn yet them rights so I walk it and it was so funny I was in the pool. We're in the pool one day in in in Portugal and we're down the L. Garf- and with a Nice Little Nice Little Hotel beautiful resort. It's a box and I'm swimming with my wife. And Catherine and they've got their bikinis on smoking right. Careful asked him tubes everywhere and it's great. It's great it's a great by the way if you're going to go on so someplace like in the summer where the pool of southbound Ob- Casarin awesome some coworker to your daughter. Yeah but I tell you to tell you a story so all of a sudden this. This older lady was sitting there with her husband. and She She's staring at us. The whole time I get in staring us the whole time and you know finally I think her curiosity rose to a level where she's like I gotTa figure out what the Hell's what's going on here and she walked right into the pool and comes right up to us and say okay. What's the situation? Tell me what's going on and you you know two checkers. That's going on right now. You know I just said I'm just having a very very wonderful trip. That's what I said to her. And she's like they. Are they both with you and I said Yes yes they are and then Catherine get your live there Katherine says we shut up. She starts yelling at me because I play it off like you know. We're going to bed together every tonight the three the three of us and My wife and Catherine are very close friends and they scream and yell at me but it listen. It's worth the yelling. There's no question absolutely Alex. Help me out here. Tell me fence. Apart saying that if it came to fruition it'd be like really good to go to bed with Catherine Tappan and his wife together. That's offensive well. It's sexualizing a CO worker. And a close friend. WHO's the notion with a beautiful blonde bombshell? And he's on a podcast. This with hockey guys just shooting the offensive part is that these guys are clearly trying to be like shut up. Shut up Rodak Laura Daughter Right. I mean yeah I think so. Right Impart Ryan Whitney Paul visit. I mean that's amazing that that got him suspended by the network that gave Matt Lauer Button so we could lock been never disciplined people for comments about women misconduct that of course. That's that's nothing. You can't be serious. You can't tapping was actually like upset. As she said she first of all their friends so soon they would work out by themselves to an secondly secondly I don't think she was. She had to issue a public statement. The network pressured to say you know those were inappropriate comments and I'm glad my friend suspended. which is you know? They're forcing people to say these things. Therefore cicely you Roenick really feels regretful. I can't remember what do they have. I think NBC. Sports has Wednesday nights or maybe just making. He's coming back for Wednesday so they gave it a couple of days. He apologized and honestly. I mean it's too bad happened to him but a month from now. Nobody will even even remember that this happened. I mean I barely remember happy out. If he didn't send apology out. Nobody would ever know you this stuff. You know Alex saying who's going to remember the annoying little piss. Yeah the stuff only idiots. No that's will be. I'm sorry you're young man you'll probably two to three it for years but when you die that's going to be in the first paragraph but if the globe doesn't open but I mean now is a much bigger story than this Ronin comment which broke broke around like Christmas Eve. If I remember correctly it was in the hockey world. I think it was a big deal. K- know they probably have the day the same as you well. Everybody did who thought who thought it should have been suspended Catherine Tavern. Apparently oh she did not. That's ridiculous. I just hate when I mean he had to issue apology. Nobody should have done little statement little Tom. Here's a paragraph. Well they may before the cameras although it's like hostage video ask and no one thinks he's sincere. It's just it just. I'd like before we wrap up. I'd like to issue an apology. And it's it's not about the rundown it's not. It's not about making sales for the show. Even though I know you have a problem with that was going to give you credit man. I know it seems. He's like you have a problem with it but it took hours to get back to it but it's not a big deal. It's just like you gave me shit about not responding to an email. That's fine took me hours because you were only in my point is I tweeted out when I saw the Jimmy Johnson Hall of fame thing last night I tweeted out that this this should be just a strictly. NFL films thing. I said this really. Basically it wasn't good TV. TV atherosclerosis usual. I didn't know what the hell you are. So hard shop your untwisted you've stopped after tweets don't even know what they mean. I re watched IT I. It was good TV last night. That Jimmy Johnson people were talking about on twitter. Obviously that was great. He belongs in the hall of fame and he was a great coach. But I didn't cry. Did you cry. Crime AAC Aikman. Almost copying the look on Aikman's face now that almost got me and I'm an emotional guy now with little ones too so it's worse but because you have little ones you're gonNA cry when a coach gets the hall of Fame Not specifically that but it was just like the emotion I could see. How happy was bill cower? That didn't come out the same on Saturday. Just didn't feel the same as what Kaur who Shortly after being told he was a hall of Famer said that. You have to give Billy O'Brien credit. Because he had his team ready to play billet O'Brien's uh-huh team gave up forty one straight points. They lost the last three quarters of that game. Fifty one seven and he said give him credit got it. That's his. I thought after the game I like Billy O'Brien again. I feel bad form. I hope he doesn't get fired. His I thought after that game that amazing game name Patrick Mahomes had five touchdown passes and just carved up to Texans. They were totally overmatched. Totally outcoached as I thought was. Give Billy Billy O'Brien credit. They should've taken the hall of fame. Thing away I thought is I like punts no so you guys immediately is a fake punt. Doesn't work say how bad it move. It was of course it was a bad move. It didn't work but his thought process. Is I have to use trickery. 'cause I am overmatched. They're much better. If I'm going to hold onto this lead I gotta do some things. I gotta pull some rabbits onto my hat. That's what he's thinking. What was Romo's take? If they got the line quicker on that they would have had. It was good take. Yeah because what Sorenstam did was sniff out. All you do is give him time to sniff. It was a good take as usual. Romo Roma by the way WHO's Rumored to to be looking at it becoming the highest paid TV guy. Fourteen Noah tend to fourteen million which is amazing. You're talking about a TV broadcast an an analyst getting a million dollars a game and Monday night football for him so if he decides he wants to Keep playing golf and he can make Sunday. That's important that works out. It's like accused cut like a bunch of little kids at home busy golfing and drinking dave having multiple kids at home. You have multiple kids kids. I'm just that's actually Tony Romo Golfer. I've got kids. They don't read on the Mike. You know they don't realize drunk he gets on the weekends and when he's like jumping on cars they don't know daddy's doing really get drunk. Inappropriate switched to hard booze. Don't worry get drunk anymore. It makes me upset. Switched to hard booze yet. No no like I can drink like ten slow. He Drinks Pink Whitney. Because he's idolizes Ryan witnesses when he needs to say love your how your guys guys two and a half and five months okay. In teaching many was like the biggest life lesson. Now definitely no more kids wrapping it up really later later snapping it off but do you think Romo likes Jim Nance so much that he will say no to. ESPN because they have good chemistry. But Nancy Takers Cardona world. But he's good at his job he tested for next to no. You can't do. It tends towards much John. The mentioned that a few times. Thank well he could pick his own guy but he can't take nance with them but McDonald's actually he's terrible moderately we've funny. They would actually have a little bit. McDonald's mcdonagh who called me when I get fired him and then the next day was on its sucking on Greg Hill's to- Nobody Sean McDonough more than you even. Oh I regretted my fault my mistake but you live and learn. You haven't reached out and Oh yes I did. Yes I made it clear that he's a weasel and I will not be Will Not be singing. John's praises anymore. Those days are over. I turned out to be just another two faced weasel but anyway I think Romo could take anybody with them. I mean you're getting paid a million bucks a game you can pick take your own play by play guy. But he won't Nance he loves Nance those guys are good doesn't. CBS seems like just a better Gig for me if he espn. Don't you have to do sportscenter. Appearances draft coverage brutal I mean CBS's literally any do the Games. You don't see them anywhere else now. Really don't mix the rare valid point. Thank you you. The most important thing to him is golf game. Yeah that's he's a scratchy thinks he can he's played on the PGA tour and he thinks he can make some cuts play professional golf. That is the most important factor whichever job. Let's play more golf. They'll with his wife and kids at doesn't matter. The Gulf is what's most important the leverage. Now he can do whatever you want you can tell you spend you want me ten million dollars more than most of the players in the league. It's amazing that's that's your theory though right. If you're a great golfer you're not a great husband and father so Romo in all spare time is added was playing Golf Ryan's lunch good Gulf. I'll show you a bad father true. Yes yes aromas either playing Golfer studying film right I mean given out prepared for these good men. Good will agree. Nobody thinks he's is overrated or flashing. Japan will agree these great. I read here though that John. Madden's nineteen ninety-four salary adjusted for inflation was about fourteen million per year really He's so much better than John. Manley any so much better than Booger McFarland or Aikman doesn't even understand it therefore downs like he's the strangest thing I know. He's I don't think he's. He's got a role I'm not sure he's in the right. It was better last year news. The booger mobile. The third guy down there he was. Yes but then you had the WIT news terrible terrible so bad I thought you were an hour and fifteen minute podcast okay. I'm trying to having such a good time here. Guys shooting the Shit. Apparently podcast podcast is. Alex won't let let me wrap at a time. Alex thanks for coming in. Thanks for having. We didn't do a national championship preview today National Championship. I love both coaches. I don't know I'm ruined for ED. I'm rude Fred. You know why because he sounds like me I like you know we have voices similar. Voices we stick together we gotTA clumps in the family so do Dabo like what he did for Kevin Turner Son Kevin Attorney Son. It was kind of a you know. Just a nice thing. He did. For his heartbreaking weekend. He comes back tonight with a big win to show will be. I'm sure I'm root for Lsu. I like borough. He's he's fun to watch. Are we going to be big on the National Championship tomorrow. I'm not sure we'll see what happens. We'll see what happened. Wasn't you back tomorrow. Yeah did you. He's got. He was pretty good when I discovered them feeling credit he did some he did it in his teaser of the show. He acted like I've known this guy for years. I've just I. I heard him on the broadcast.

"Then we got shot quarterback time french very this. Is the sean salisbury. Well command on a thursday morning the opening of the golf tournament here houston opens today about the best news locally. There is golf but the best fee opener head to. Yeah no doubt. Dustin johnson posts cova is gonna play brooks koepka. Instead of kapka lee medically correct. Why because he's my favorite up like because she'd yeah because he he'll throw some shade of people take some shots joy that i'll tell you what it a fight de shambo. Kicks kept his ass. Oh there's no chance get outta hair date. Bryson can't fight anybody. He's gonna win out. He's a big. He's an over thing. How do i analyze how to punch this guy here to get the victory and gets popping. The knows that he's down no kept on loads on him. No doubt there's no doubt kept it's the guy you know. Some guys are so big. They can't they can't even scratch their own. You're in because it can't. It can't reach around d shambo now. He'll hit it a country mile. God bless him. he's a hell of a player but now in a in a in an all out brawl. I got i got koepka. Well otherwise named his real name brooks koepka. Yes i'm with you so big field in the houston open today. Man starts today. Cap cod dustin johnson and up for the masters and so golf channel coverage starts at noon. Today the vint houston open right there. You go so. I'm excited to see what the golf course one thousand fans out there is. That is that the case got to work and make sure your social distance. So if i gotta do all that. I'll just stay at the crib can watch on. Say yeah me too so there you go houston open. We'll discuss have a little fun with that today. You know the texans. There's always that post post voting deadline post trade deadline. There's that feeling of i guess relief for some Irritable for others pissy or even mentioned in the talks depression you know. Just gotta blogs like after christmas next to you like okay. I'm after vacation on the trip home. You like this is empty. I'm coming on vacation. Real world kicks in again. You know that feeling well. Here's j. j. watt. let's get. This started because he was a topic of a lot of conversation about possible trays. He's been houston zone for quite some time Jj watt talked about and we talked about well rebuilding and retool and gut the team. Here's a. j. j. watt set about that. I personally believe that. I do have a few a few more great ones left me but you also can't. I'm not. I'm not looking to rebuild on to. I'm looking to go after a championship. And that's what i wanna do. So whatever's in the best interest of the houston texans as in the best interest in myself and so But like i said. I'm i'm interested in in winning a championship in this league. That's how every players go couldn't agree more with your house that post deadline feeling for you. Jj i mean. They're obviously a lot of rumors going around. There's a lot of conversations that happen whether it's in the building between guys whatever it is so Now that's over. There's a lot of obviously definitive nece to that situation. So there's no more speculation. There's no more distraction from that standpoint. So now it is what it is and you move forward. There is and he's right and this team was pretty. You know obviously free from any big trade and and now they're ready to go on. Well shawn watson playing good good football and he also was talking about the rebuilding. And here's what he said about The texans rebuilding as well. I view it as a rebuilding. Thank you know because every year is a new year. I it's a new team. People were going in and out people were getting traded. People going signed you for contrast and free agency. Coach changes all all types of different things. So you know just stepping stone that we're just figuring out you know the right pieces to the puzzle and every year every team is doing even if you have you know teams that are sitting here on. The feet are only one loss. You know there's still trying to make sure there's roster and things like that is is turning and going in the right direction so You just gotta continue to just take it one day at a time by the time and and figure out you know i agree with. Jj i don't i don't wanna say in change everything But i do want to win the championship eventually in and got a long way to go. And we've got a lot of work to put in so That's that's our main focus. But right now we're just trying to win. You know one game at a time and try to flip season. He's it's gonna take a while to win a championship but having the attitude to want to win one another thing and you ask why they didn't trade. Well these nuts peanuts and romeo cornell wants some deluxe ones. I wanted all these guys on the team. I didn't wanna trade anybody. okay. I want them all on the team. Plus when you when you're talking about trading and like. I said i'm not taking peanuts right all right. And nobody really came through with a deluxe nut package And so if there had been some develops nuts laid out on the table. That could have been a different deal. I who we know what we know. A romeo likes to eat when he's sitting around. Listen you gotta put the key to really get your roster setup but if you're going to make a trade you have to have deluxe deluxe nuts. What's in the deluxe nuts package for me. It would be to differ. You'd have was sobbing nuts in there and to stash egos. Those are the top two for me. I love love pistachios pre i. I don't mind shell them but you go and buy the the already shelled pistachios in the store. Come on man. I like macadamia nuts to plan those you know. I don't think i've ever had a macadamia nut. Oh man if you like them in a cookie. The mcintyre that you know the white chocolate amy cookies or whatever. You talk a cover band complain. That's ain't bad either now. A promise ya yeah macadamia nuts. Good but i'm a big estacio. Guy we know was that romeo wants them in a deluxe package. Yes deluxe I don't know if these nuts you ever had those. That are deluxe package fc. I've not. I would assume that they're typically in most people's deluxe package though. Wouldn't it be today. The dots are got him got him. What's that guy's name again. Remember that dude. The god guide guide the teeth. Yeah oh my gosh. She had summer teeth duty. Did he suffer here in summer there. Yeah they were everywhere and summer everywhere. Gad dave weldon is was his name welvinson opens last statement with the him guy. But romeo ain't trading anybody here. Weldon degrate is what he called him. Well there you go gaddi but you cannot trade for for just kind of regular you know just for peanuts. I like peanuts. Can't trade for you. Need deluxe the. You need to deluxe package man. You don't get out of deluxe not you don't trade. That's the bottom line. So romeo says so. Make sure you understand that. It's appreciate romeo sticking to his Nuts is themed rate scale before without megan deals. Yep so the texans aren't into rebuild mode and you know they'll go into the to the coachspeak cliche of one game at a time one wintertime. It's it's it's the it's the existing coachspeak but it's also true. You know when when sean says or just trying to win a game. It's it's an flipped. The season around it is the fact. That's the only way you get started by winning. One the one and one. If you give me can't get a second one to take get to it and get it done. You can't get a third one until number two comes in so i Trying to get that second. One shouldn't be that difficult. I wouldn't think although they're all tough to come by you're on the road. You're playing against qatar road games in a row now and you're playing against jacksonville with a quarterback that it's never started a game so and i. I saw the kid college a little bit. But i don't know a lot about them then it's i can't even it's thursday stolen. Remember what his name is. It's it's spelled. L. u. t. o. N. is his last name. Are you go. I don't know if it's pronounced luton or lutton. I'm not sure. Because i haven't heard anybody say his name this week. But i i. I've seen a few highlights of him. But i don't you know without the Without the audio part of it. But i don't know much about him. this game easy team of the of the cbs broadcast and be forgotten about yup. And then then the texans will dwell. They'll try to win. What's a noon. Game gotta be a noon game. Twelve o'clock game on on sunday I don't know how many people are actually paying attention to it but the players are and now they haven't been traded and maybe they can take a deep breath. maybe somebody wanted to get traded. Who knows but Jj watt shawn watson. Yeah every building socks. If you're a veteran to shawn's in that mode where he's got time to work through a rebuilding agreed jd. He's got some good years ahead of him really good years. He said great. And whether that's three or two or four Who knows. But i don't blame him see. That's the one thing. When teams want to rebuild players. Don't play players. Don't want to rebuild the veteran. It's also probably speaks to county near not willing to move anybody right because we all know that he values the hell out of having. Jj watt whatever the hell jj watt says is. There's no question about that. That's been proven so. I don't blame him now. I wouldn't as a veteran. Well we're trying to get a team and bring in a bunch of guys and you're gonna rebuild well if you're thirty two years old or thirty one years old or thirty five years old like the aaron rodgers of the brady's or the jj watson world who've put up good crazy like i'm not screw the rebuilding lynn and unfortunately for jj unlike the other two cats. He hasn't won a super bowl. So i get where he's at. Its sports talk seven ninety. We'll be here for four hours. A vivid houston open with a great field today. So we'll we'll have some. I'm kind of curious to see what the setup looks like on television and should be a blast. And i know jim crane and the golf company and stuff putting this on should be should be great for all the pga tour charities and everything involved and it's going to be an awesome day so the weather. It'll be fun for those who get to go on for the golfers they're gonna frigging love today. Be fun to watch. Sports talk seven ninety rolling along and our number one rebuilding here deluxe nuts on the table. And that's how you make that. That's how you understand whether you're going the right direction or not. Not peanuts deluxe nuts sports. Talk seven ninety. Sean salisbury show continues on seven hundred ninety and continues in your home. Say alexa play sports. Talk seven ninety on iheartradio right. It's a thursday the opening of the houston open right here in our backyard. Is they get tuned up for augusta national but still can't believe we're sitting here in november saying. They're getting ready for the master's next week a trip and while the master's is next week and it's really really cool that we get to see it twice in about six months or less about six months because it'll be in april again I think it's pretty awesome. But and while it's a tune-up for the masters the truth matter is you're not here. Just tuneup for the you here to play well and win a tournament because are always a lot of money in these tournaments. And you're gonna get incredible weather least. I don't know what the weather forecast is for the next four days but it sure eighty and sunny. Every day they're going to have great weather and That's another drawing card. They'll wanna come back here aside from great public golf course. It'll be fun to watch. And max just to see how it looks how the greens are and and to get good weather. It'll be phenomenal. And then they'll head to augusta next league which will be cool. Did you hear what kept said yesterday about the course because he helped craning them. Do the redesign of it kept ca. Did helping redesign it. Yeah he was. He was the player you know he was the basically the heat him and two other guys help with the design of it and he says that they he goes. It's gonna play like a. us open. He kept saying it's gonna play like a us open like well. We already know what the the goal with that courses then to get a. Us open their. That'd be awesome. Yeah if that's the way they're doing it then scores. Even though the weather's good are going to be difficult unless they bring the course there needs like a guy like hit so far that the campaign of its playing like us open than i imagine. I haven't seen pictures of it anytime recently on purpose. Because i've kind of wanted to drove by but just drove by the memorial but didn't get a look at the golf course the other day i. I'm curious how high the rough is. And i haven't seen any re- i don't know if you have seen any recent a impact in the past. It was always high out there that was that was the caucus. They played the usda standards. I did a lot of the stuff out there. So i would imagine. It's not short. Because i want them ready for gusta who knows they do like. Yeah because a rough not hired augusta. Obviously they do like Us open does like public courses. That are kind of reduced. We've seen that part of the world and out there on the what's my place out there in the shores of New york Bethpage f page. Black torrey pines. They like public courses. That everybody can play that a redone. Us open This year in san francisco So there Why not why not here. I think it'd be awesome. So we'll see how it plays and how golfers you think. It's an advantage at the guy who built it planet. The guy who i would i would think so. That'd be my guess. He has an idea. Yeah i wonder how. Many practice rounds. How many of these guys been out here for a while. I wonder you know. I mean i think most of them. I kept have been here since monday. So if you had a normal week for the guys says their preparation come in early play if he rounds and then get self tuned up so there you go. It's the the houston open. Kicks off today and and tee times I'm looking here. What time some of these guys tee off here If i can find them if you wanna watch your favorite player the early morning tee times number one number ten well.

Eighteen it up or you know last major and now just to get in there and pop in there on his plane and go play it a couple times and used to the setup and the not that he needs to get used to it because he knows it but just as to study it and I'm sure that He's jacked up next week as well. Who's the defending champion out there. I'm trying to think who wanna anto griffin is his name. I don't know anything about him. I'm talking about augusta. i we know who it is. It's tiger oh see the. That's right because we skipped it. I'm losing my mind. that's right. Tigers defending champion because we did skip the event april and he's defending his title and then he'll get a chance or somebody will get a chance to their title in about five and a half months so we'll get two of them in a year so that'd be pretty cool you know what you're exactly right if anything one last year. We didn't have anybody play yet. So i wonder this year. I wonder how the grand slam of golf worker. You know as two masters going to counter isn't going to be five for to win all the majors this year. How are they going to do. What's going to be considered. I guess this one. Technically he goes on last year. I don't know the whole twenty. Twenty is not interested in you having normal record this will well it. Is this discos on this year. Because we're in this year it's just moved ahead. So the you're the twenty twenty masters champion. You're the two thousand twenty masters champion and you can't win the legitimate grandson. Let's say goes masters masters and then when two more majors pga now and then the us open because that's the order. Now so if you go masters matches pga is that considered the grand slam. The legit and the answer to that is absolutely not. It's winning three of them. Plus a second masters. And you're hoping you own win the british open later in the in you know in the summertime and then it's the one so it all they've done is actually just by pushing this back. You're just playing to masters in six months which is a treat for us but And i'm sure for the golfers who doesn't wanna play it twice in six months and a chance to win it. Here's the here's the sucky part about it is you. Don't get to hold the jack very long in normally. You're the masters champ for a year. Now you get to be the masters champ unless of course you know how how cool would it be if tiger goes wins this one and then turned around. And when's the next. You got the jacket three times in two years and you get to where for a long time so While you get your own but legitimately were they call call you the master champ. You'll get a time to be considered the masters champion. You're always a champion but before somebody else's crown so we'll be in butler cabin a couple times in the neck. How far away is tire from a nicholas. Most master shavings all time because he could potentially do it. In think tigers one is five now or four. Jaguars six yeah. He's one five so last year was the sixth one. And i think he's got sixteen. Major championships may right about that. Fifteen okay so going after his sixteenth. So yeah that's a winning at once. They're gotta be joined win. It twice has got to be like. I can't believe my career got this to win at five times. You've gotta be like ants still with a chance to win it now. I don't how many more chances he has as long as these guys are to go there and win it. 'cause you know although we've seen fred couples in his fifties hang around and continue to be competitive there. At least he's been there. Seems like the first day of the leaderboard. Fred couples always finds a way to be on it but The you start to time start to dwindle a little bit because these guys are so long and their nerves are a little bit better but tiger knows that courses as a as if he built it so it'd be fun to see. You won't get him this week. Where you'll get kept going. Dustin johnson and other other a bunch of other major winters phil mickelson will be out there today at the vivid houston open. And we've talked talked about the houston texans obviously and their approach to this trade deadline up trying to figure out in my mind. What when you leave this season. I guess you kind of try to push the first seven games aside and say okay. Now we're playing a nine game season you know and if you go five and four or six and three you say see. We're building something here. And i'm wondering how i'm wondering. What for them and we'll discuss. What for them. I know it will win. And they're not good enough to win them all but what what. We're realistic goals at team. Set for themselves coming off the trade deadline. I i really do. I know everybody says we got them all. I don't know if they're capable of winning them all but what's sufficient for guys to say man. We had one hell of a second half season. Is it six. Three five and four. What's sufficient for you guys to go into this season saying next season saying man we may. We did not trade. Anybody was right and we are headed towards something special as there anything that would do that to you. As we prepare to hire a coach and a general manager here. I would imagine in the next two months it sports. Talk seven ninety our number one houston open today. If you're headed out there be safe and enjoy much to discuss in the nba. It is. They're putting a full court press on his brian. T smith said in his article today to get us to back into basketball mode. And i'm not sure. I can hang just yet. Sports talk seven ninety. Sean salisbury continues on seven ninety quick question one question one question the big one the question of the day on the sean salisbury. Show all right as we look around the l. Who's going to win the houston open and all that stuff. But let's take this little outside of houston. Because i think it affects everybody. I think he's a hot button topic for a lot even though when he's not on twitter he's awfully awfully quiet. But do you think. Antonio brown finishes the season in tampa thank. You plays a whole season. I personally think he will. But i've i wouldn't bed My life savings on. Let's just put it that way. I think unless there's a there must be a prop that out there. Because i'm willing to bet if i got good odds that he is gonna finish this season two. He seems like he's i mean. You never know what that guy but brady sticking his neck out again and he stayed with brady. He feels like he actually knows that. This is literally going to be the last chance. And i would imagine when you know it's a last chance Could affect your wallet good or bad depending on you finish in play well or not and when you're faced with that come to jesus time when because if he doesn't get through this year and he just i mean it just kinda goes haywire on him like emotionally and mentally. Then there's some i mean we. We already know. He's probably got a few issues he needs to take care of. I'm not making light of mental situation. I'm not because i do think that that. I think it's pretty obvious. I don't you don't have to be a doctor diagnosed. That but get it under control or whatever he's doing to try and live right and then try and be calm. I think when you when you when you're faced with it's either this or you're done dude That'll shape a lot of people up. So i i i i would bet actual. A good chunk did an tonio brown when they get january in the playoffs start. He's still in uniform plan for do you think it's tough for someone like him to come in and be as productive as everyone thinks he's gonna be because they're saying. Oh godwin's out all brown. There's it'd be no drop off. Heck they even better. I don't i don't know if he's going to be the same maybe we we're used to let me tell you. Now i've watched that guy work and and his practice habits and his grind now he can grind on people off the field. I we want twitter. He could make you crazy which we haven't seen him on. It seems like he's been very very what's the word He's resisted whatever that temptation is even if it's there but he is a player now i'm just he. He's he's still got game now. I don't know if we can expect him how you know how many the key. How many snaps is he going to get. And i it's highly overrated. I'm just telling you. Michael irvin and i were discussing this the other day to about people housing and i think we brought up a be about. How's it going to fit in and the timing and listen once you know a route it's so overrated when people. I hear it all the time. Well they got to get on the same page who. I don't understand what page that is. We don't just a matter of fact it's tougher to get on the same page. Plan your in the school yard with your buddies when you're in seventh or eighth grade because you're just saying you're drawing it up in the dirty and you go down here go to do when we used to play in the street and go to the car run around the car and stop right there at the front of the suv. That's how i used to play. We play in the street. And then you go to the park and play with your buddies. It's tougher to do that because once he's learned mentally what they're trying to get done and i'm sure some of the verbiage matches what he learned in new england. Because tom's there. So i'm i'm sure some of the audible checks and some of the things that brady's doing that. Bruce put some of his stuff in the verbiage with tom so it shouldn't be that difficult. And quite frankly when people ask when you switched teams in the season how can you learn it as a grown man. If i told you guys you had to go study for a real estate exam you'd study and you pass the test okay. You're you're a grown man you learn how to study. It's not like it's his first. It's not like it's the first time he's ever been introduced to football or nfl. Speed things right. So and he's got he can run now and he cut on a diamond levy nine cents change so that part i do know is a foot just to football stuff but i always laugh when peterson l. Man how now i understand. You've got eight new dudes that everybody's run around. They don't know how to even get lined up. But if you know how to get lined up shallow cross or hey run a mesh route at four yards. What what do. I gotta get lined up about that for me. What do i gotta to be on the same page man. Hey we're running a curl of flat check down combination. Did you got a twelve yard curl all okay i. I don't know where the it's just different rapper. Man get there now. Some guys get there quicker than others. Some guys understand how to seize zone and slide into the whole those kind of things that just comes with expertise that he's been playing football long enough to know that so. I always laugh when it's tougher for a right guard guard in new right tackle. Be on the same page. Far tougher in an opening game if this is antonio brown. You're saying he's going to play Left tackle for the left tackle situation. I'd worry far more a dude run at twelve. Fifteen yard dig route. Oh okay hey and this one will run on a fifteen yard back to twelve comeback. Eighteen to fifteen comeback. I i always. Hey man having trouble getting on the same page now actually. we're not. I missed a throw or at the post is opposed as opposed an ounce and outs an out. Now it's the adjustment. Are they rolling the corner up and you gotta just it to fade route verse press. Okay listen i'm standing up there pressing. They're not bailing We gotta hit trout on it converts to fade. That ain't that hard. Ain't that hard so i'm always fascinated when man gotta get these guys on the same page. Now if you're talking about cam. Newton coming into an offense too shallow crosser horizontal offense and new england. And he's got to learn. The whole system is the quarterback different story that different story but quarterback. I'd never ever once had a new receiver come in or was on a team or a new receiver came. Now i've been on receivers. Didn't quite understand that the verbiage they come ten. They're still trying to get the verbiage going and make some adjustments but when it comes to wants the ball snapped and they know where to go. Now there's guys you trust more they were going to catch the ball and not drop it but most guys understand when you run a corner. It's it's a corner so are basically wide receiver and running back. No matter what. Because it's you're you're always pretty much doing the same thing. No matter what offense or those probably shouldn't be as tough to learn mentally. I'm not saying that they're not that. Now listen francis a running back if you're in a system and what's the worst that can happen. I've i've i've had this happened. New running back comes in and we're running a certain play in. We called sixty outside. And you're the tailback. In the i formation we called it dot right sixty outside. Stretch play at the running back breaks the huddle and doesn't know say do the stretch play. That's easy and a lot of times. You walk by bid on it when a new running back comes in. And he's trying to and come to the line of scrimmage during the shotgun standing next year and you got a certain protection and maybe he's only a week into its. its scott. what am i doing here you are. You're free release you block. The will if he comes. If not check down you say that black breaking out of the huddle. I mean there's look did you get will check down. If he doesn't come. just go. Sit down run. Five yard checked out. Got now whether you can block the guy or not you right and whether you can hit the whole quicker than somebody else can. It's different story but it wide receiver. I'm not saying that they're not smart. But it's a lot tougher than learning blocking blah learning blocking schemes. Or if you're the middle linebacker call defenses really. If you're new for instance if antonio brown was just getting into the mix then you put a package form and say okay. We got five passes dude when we here's the formations trips twins. You've got one motion. You're gonna rates zip motion where you're going to cross the formation or you're going to zip in or zap which is a return motion and we got a corner out for you. We've got a hitch. You're going to run the slant and here's the formations and a and a package and then you grow the library. But maybe it's to the point where he'd been there and you know that you didn't need that long so i wouldn't expect seventy snaps out of the guy so it's not whenever i hear people that are not on the same page. No it's not. They're not on the same page. It's that either the quarterback or the receiver or the running back isn't verbiage. They're not they're not caught up with it yet. So and people make mistakes and go the wrong way on a hole that happens once in a while. But it's not that tough to be on the same timing of any receiver when you run a twelve yard curl dude run twelve yard girl and come back and get the football and if you're sitting in the whole you're gonna get it ain't that tough it's just not so whenever i oh man it's gonna take them a long time to get on the same page now if you told me guiding play football and four years coming off an injury and hasn't worked out and he's winded okay but it's not tough to run a hey mandates the you got the post route i tend to twelve lean and take it to the post and if the safety sits down. Dude look for the football. Because it's coming your way. It's not the whole man. They're not on the same page now. Rookie trying to get on the same page because trying to get it get it. But i don't wanna hear fifteen games into a season that a rookie doesn't know the offense because if he doesn't then he ain't been studied enough and he's lazy. It ain't that hard to learn. I know it's a big library like anything else by the time you've been in. School is a third grader. You know what two plus two is by week six. You know that we run curl flat dude. You got twelve yard curl out of this formation. It's all about attention to detail focus and do you do. Lonely work can do you study. And i fully expect antonio brown to impact. If he doesn't catch a ball you still got to account for him and worry lines up because he's dangerous but i the poll question at sports seven ninety on twitter is simply this will antonio brown finish the season in tampa bay. That's the simple. And if he doesn't finish their he may not finish anywhere because this could be his last chance. I think he will. I would bet yes on that. And i will. And i'd bet money he does. And i'll bet money impacts them somehow sportstalk seven ninety celebration. Start more sean salisbury. On sports talk seven hundred ninety. Become a groundswell of people that i've talked to rod woodson this week Most believe john name-dropping. I'm kidding. I spoke to him last night. The reason why the the people that are in the know there on reading hell she got a namedrop might as well right guys i wish validates their elmore but at least it validates like well if i said well. I talked to harry hatchet ass last night. Nobody cares about his opinion but they do care about a guy who's a hall of famer a great player in his calling this game the packers on for westwood one for the packers forty niners but i asked him who the best teams in the nfl were and he said and started in the nfc and he said tampa bay the best all around team and they're starting around into and i've heard that from a lot of people so it's not just you know the break you think they are. Mc i think they are in the nfc in the afc was where he said what. I've been fast. And i think the pittsburgh steelers right now are the best counting offense defense in the league but if they played i'd take mahomes in the game right now because i think he they they'll they just score more points than what's odd is it. Ben hasn't had to make those big huge down. The plato's they're getting there there's moving the ball normally they can strike quick and they have the ability with their receivers was smith schuster and and Claypool but they are methodically. You know kind of tearing you apart and wearing the out. And they're doing it without ben half to throw for three thirty or three hundred every week. So that's a good thing. But he said the same thing so tampa pittsburgh and kansas city where the overwhelming three teams we discussed and you know and and with that going back to the antonio brown poll question a will. He finished a season. This year with tampa I'm not sure that many people. When tom brady walked out of new england and went there after last year even though they were twelve and four and he threw for four thousand. And and it's tom brady. I would bet you that if you interviewed. Most people are said okay. I got a bet will the new willa tampa bay buccaneers be a super bowl threat. I'll bet you most said. Tom doesn't have enough in the tank. And here i heard this a million times. All bruce and his offense are completely different. Bruce plays vertical. Tom place whereas all time donovan avenue fastball left to throw that weld the quite wrong because a forty three hundred plus yard season and forty plus touchdowns pace. That ain't forty three years old. That's like twenty five years old so it is. It's just fascinating. What's gonna take for him. You think by the way to win the mvp away from russell wilson for russell wilson and missed the team bus and a couple of games and tom to keep playing like this. I i actually think brady is gonna end up in the top five in the season's over topped. I do think that when all finished second problem if he can in the third and maybe the lifetime he'll put up the numbers. The problem is the dude in kansas city. Still playing out of his mind we have not. We're not even talking about it. They threw threw for four plus and five touchdowns last week. I always thought like twenty one touchdown. Yeah and maybe one touchdown one interception. I think maybe yeah. I mean and it's ninety. He's not even being mentioned and brady. It's crazy but if four thousand forty four hundred and forty touchdowns doesn't win you. Mvp that'll tell you. Just how bad is twenty one to one. Come on man to twenty where he hasn't hit the what six one is that what they are seven one six one seven. What's that one. Okay sees that the midway point so he's on pace to throw two picks and forty two touchdowns think about winning the mvp this is third. Full seasons starter. fourth year in the league. He's thrown ninety seven touchdowns in nineteen six. Yeah and he's the heavy favorite in the heavy going into the season they were the heavy favourite pittsburgh's plan good football but they were the favourite. Maybe baltimore was also in the afc. And they're still obviously a favorite but with pat mahomes. Now think about that if he gets to an afc championship game this year. That will mean in this first three years starting. He's been to the championship game all three years. He will have already want soup. Vp of fifty touchdown season right. Yeah it was. Mvp regular season mvp. And you think about it right now. Twenty one and one on the best team in the afc and what many think is the best team in the nfl. They're seven and one. He's twenty one touchdowns against one pick and he's not even sniffing the mvp award right now which speaks volumes to and he's on a far better team overall. Then the guy is in seattle. Just is i mean now. Okay me three running backs in seattle you can't carson. You can't carson. Yeah yeah and i can fantasy football chris carson one and then you've got who else they just give carlos hyde other high carson carson began to think. Where's karl side again. He's in seattle. Whose the aside from lock it in and the metcalf and olsen naming their four other playmakers that. I don't know his first name. But more david moore okay. My point average football fan would know emcees a football fan. You didn't know that right. is that name me. They're starting defense. Name me three guys on defense. Not named bobby wagner or car. They the guy that they just took from texas tech in the first round. The linebacker. And i can't even remember his name mr texas tech. So you get my point. Quandary digs because he's from around here too. He's a local kid right. So you get my point and then you look at russ and say well. If you're not running it naming the other linemen named join round on that team can't point is now you want to go through kansas city. We can name them all. You could name eight defender can keep going matter of fact you can name. Kansas city's fifth sixth option. On offense rago hardman robinson even robinson or heart edwards. Helaire you to go up up and down the list watts. It just doesn't matter. Oh by the way later on belt part of that team to now so you get it so which speaks volumes to. It's not so much that you know speaking of volume that russ all the place he has to make to win. But normally on that you'd think okay. He's making three touchdowns but a pick put his team in a bad way right because he's gotta make so many plays you'd think he'd up when he did. He threw three picks in the one game. They had a chance to win against should have one. Here's a guy. So if i'm telling you that brady right now can't sniff. The mvp rogers was going for but now after a couple of losses. He's kind of fallen off a little. You've got mahomes twenty one touchdowns in a pick and not a soul. Thinks he's the mvp and the league right now and there's russell wilson so to answer your question i do. Mci listen they go and get home. Field advantage throughout win the nfc and brady throws forty touchdowns and throws for forty three hundred yards or forty four hundred dollars. Because i actually think he's to get better as they go along. I don't think he's played his best football game yet. So i think he's actually looking like he's clicking more and more your wake right and get that confidence like when he was at his best. You felt like you couldn't get him off the field in new england. I think he's starting to feel that way. And they do have the best inside linebackers in a league. I'm just telling you they do whitened. And why am i losing my mind. david that they are a combo. There the best. So when you look at that team and brady so it would have to take rust having a couple of those arizona like two or a couple more of those were roughs had like fifteen picks on the right where where was like double digits picks twelve. Even though he does fifty tonnes may still win it. Because it's a tribute to him and people are gonna say we'll patent. Tom got better teams. They got better weapons. So i think it's gonna be tough and russ just keeps piling the numbers up so for a guy who never got an mvp vote. He's about to get a lot of them. Carl he's gonna get karl malone treatment to and we haven't voted for you we wanna vote for. Its time and time you win one. The last three years he's been in the discussion talk two or three names at most the season you think of russell wilson's mvp canada. And then someone else separates himself most of the time this year. It just feels like russ's doing so much. Got to give us not allowing them to separate from him. He refuses to allow the talk to separate and even though he's been at every year we say well. How can we leave. Russell wilson on and you know what not one voted for him. He's never received a vote not not a finished fourth. The dudes never received a vote for the embassies. Or i'll say is fascinating. Actually it's one of the for. It's like a strange phenomena. I can't believe it well. He's i think he's trying to put a stamp of approval on that and let everybody know that things are changing this year. But we've got you think the quarterback position at the top. Any good pretty good. It's half decent. yeah even though we don't think it's going to happen because but look at drew brees is numbers. Still i mean they're fine. Yeah from a number standpoint. He looks good. Yeah he does but the the naked eye tells you push the ball down. The field is different story for him right now. But they're winning and he's completing the ball and and He's accurate so but it to me. We got some really good guys at the top. Quarterbacks stacked at the top top ten quarterbacks league really good russ leads that category when it comes. Mvp talk all right. Sports talk seven ninety hour number two. Whether looks good. They just showed a picture on tv. The golf course and man does it look pristine enjoy it today. Sports talk seven hundred hour number. Two sean sows ratio josh. Back in in.
