"Or nine games instead of 10. Now these coaches care about about wins and losses. Coaches are really not that complicated. They're pretty simple black and white wins and losses. So given the way, this policy has been written by the league, I think a lot of coaches are looking at it through football glasses. They're looking at it from their own myopic football point of view. Does this rule potentially Affect my football team in a negative way. And the answer is yes. It has become clear to me that the way the NFL did this, they made it a competitive advantage for teams that are the most vaccinated. And they did it on purpose. That's not one of those things where it's an unintended, um, consequence. That's that was their intent. Let's make it so the teams that don't have vaccinated players feel the wrath of the league. And the coaches who all have to get vaccinated because their tier one employees are pissed that their players aren't And They can go into a meeting. They can speak to the team and say, If you're not going to get vaccinated, you can actually cost us games this year. And so I think coaches like Ron Rivera and others will probably point to this Kurt Cousins situation. If this had been the NFL season, he he doesn't have. He didn't test positive. He's testing negative. But he was around another quarterback in that Vikings quarterbacks room that has tested positive. So now Kirk Cousins can't practice. That's how that's how the NFL wanted us to go down. They want guys like Ron Rivera, making a spectral spectacle of themselves and really Like saying Not just critical. Like he is saying he is. He is blaming, and he is going at his own play a lot of his own players. He's creating, you know, Really, Uh, You can. You can argue that he's creating a divide among his team by doing this He feels like he's been left no choice because if he doesn't The odds of this rearing its ugly head during the regular season, is there All right. Thanks So much for listening today. Can't wait to do it again next week. You know where to find me 2 to 6 Eastern 11 to 3 Pacific. All across the CBS Sports Radio Network. It's the Pony Express. See you later. I struggled with symptoms like frequent gas and stomach pain. For years, I was bloated all the time with daily diarrhea. At first, I thought it was what I was eating. I kept thinking it was stomach issues. So I did my research and talked to my doctor and we finally uncovered the truth. It was actually e p I x a Quran.

"D A. C Y. I'll tell you what if the NFL does not adjust some of its covid 19 policies. Based on decisions that get made per a player's vaccination status. Is he vaccinated? Is he not? If something isn't done about this before the start of the season. I believe there's a very good chance that we are going to see. Teams torn apart. We're going to see Fans. Spar with each other. And basically, wars are going to take place. Between player on player coaches and players, fans against players on Social media. It's going to get very ugly. And it's going to turn into a lightning rod situation that I think will go beyond. The scope of what I do or what we do. Which is the sports bubble. You know where it's just a sports topic. You know on news talk on cable news. They're not talking about Carson Wentz's injury. They're not talking about Cam Newton being named Bill Belichick coming out and saying Cam Newton's is starting quarterback. But it will be, it will become a much bigger issue for the NFL. Where everyone is going to get involved. Even non sports fans are going to start to have a big opinions on what the NFL is doing if they keep their vaccination policy, their vaccination rules. Uh, status quo. Because we're seeing a couple things happening right now. Live breaking news stuff that's happening in the NFL. That if this were to happen on September, 31st Instead of July 31st. So you know, a couple months from now. It's going to wreak havoc on the NFL. In a similar way to How covid changed schedules and Who was active and who was inactive for games last year, and this time it's going to be Even worse, because it's not equal. It's not equal. You know the way these players get treated. The way the league comes down on. These players depends on whether they're vaccinated or not. So, for example, a major Philip Pony, the Pony Express CBS sports radio, for example. The Minnesota Vikings have a night practice tonight, a training camp practice. Callen Monde. The Texas A and M rookie quarterback has covid 19. So he's out. He's got the coronavirus. He's out. Kirk Cousins is out as well. Because of contact tracing. And the only reason why the contact tracing is happening reportedly. Is because Kirk cousins isn't vaccinated. If Kirk cousins were vaccinated. He could still practice. So if this were a game if this were a game situation, it's a Saturday night and the Vikings play a regular season game tomorrow. Okay? If that were this hypothetical situation. If if cousins is vaccinated, he can play tomorrow. If he's still unvaccinated, he can't Even though he doesn't have covid 19. That's how the NFL is doing this and that's why you've got some coaches like Ron Rivera. The Washington football coach who is a cancer survivor. You know he's worried about himself and being exposed. He's vote. He's verbalize that a few times. He came out today and sounded off. Because he's got a team with one of the lowest vaccination rates in the entire NFL. Which is up over 70%. But they've got all kinds of players missing practice right now. Because a couple of guys Sick or not sick, but are if tested positive. I should say In contact Tracing has Knocked out other guys. And so My frustration with that would be If I'm Ron Rivera, or from one of these coaches, I'm Mike Zimmer, now in Minnesota. My frustration would be with this. The players know the rules. The players know that the NFL Has come up with a very strict and stringent policy when it comes to unvaccinated players and how they're going to treat those players. That if if, if a vaccinated player tests positive Um Unvaccinated players who around that player are going to have to sit out. And I think part of it is They want it to be. As punitive as possible. To try to coach these guys into getting the vaccine. The NFL wants to be able to say that 100% of its players are vaccinated or that, like 99% of their players are vaccinated and that maybe 1% don't get it because of medical or religious reasons or whatever. But they want to be able to say that there's like a race to get there they want to be able to say were the professional sports league that is on top of this better than everyone else? And they don't want their games canceled or uprooted by it again. They don't want their product affected by covid. They don't want a situation where the Chiefs and Patriots are playing on a Tuesday night and Cam Newton's out of the lineup. And it's Brian Hoyer instead. They don't want a situation like the one Where the Steelers and Ravens were supposed to play a Thanksgiving night game and get huge ratings and instead The game gets pushed. Back. And it gets played in the middle of a weekday afternoon. With Robert Griffin, the third at quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens. They don't want to experience any of that ever again. That's what the league has decided, and the frustrating thing for coaches. The players know that and a lot of them still don't want to get vaccinated. If you're a coach, you care about your bottom line, which is your record. You care about your wins and losses record? No. One looks back on the Denver Broncos season from last year. No one looks at that and looks at Vic Fangio's record. And thanks well They lost a game to the Saints because they had a wide receiver at quarterback. So let's treat the coach more like a guy. Who lost.

Did Washington Do Enough to Push Dallas in the NFC?
"Did washington football teams teamers and the giants do enough to push dallas in the nfc. So i left philly out. I don't yeah. I just don't i am found anyone who really thinks they're going to be competitive. I mean let's wait and see got jalen whatever. But that's a team that they're not really fun to talk about. Because their free agency considered like stripping you know but i mean they did sign at harris for like nothing which is probably better sightings but what you have in jalen also you serianni. Yes hundred percent but washington in york both very active and did interesting. Things i think are worth discussing because dallas after the dak prescott deal was finally done. They've kind of made a few moves around the margins adding kia neil. Getting tied as kind of swing. Tackle still have question marks at adra sure and coroner but washington like i think they might have had my favorite free agency or at least the one that i'm most excited to see. I don't know payoff on the field. So just to recap. They signed the aforementioned ryan fitzpatrick one year. Ten million dollars. They tag branch eff. Who's there Pro bowler guard. They signed william jackson from the bengals. Cornerback three years. Forty two million dollars and then added panthers wide receiver. Curtis samuel for three years thirty four point five million dollars so just starting like let's start here. Do you agree with me like do you. Do you like what they did. And do you think it makes them an actual competitor in the division. A really like what. Washington did You know. I think among the guys among the quarterback that they could get because not only were they never in it for russell wilson or or wherever really going to be competitive for shawn watson You had to start looking okay. We'll what's realistic. And it's the ryan fitzpatrick coming off his best his career. It's an andy dalton and whereas that really gonna lead you I think that there was a lot of interest in marcus. Mariota he still is not able to sign with another team because the raiders are still holding him hostage But so. I like the quarterback. Move because you're essentially saying let's build up the team the and let's have the strongest team possible around the quarterback position where we don't sell out just because we have to for that position free agency. Maybe they make a move at the draft for a guy that they have their eye on. Or maybe they just say let's. Let's keep the boat floating this year and let's make our move Next free agency. So i thought that they probably overpaid by million or two on curtis samuel. But they wanted him And and ron rivera really likes them. Obviously william jackson an incredible deal You look around and you need another pass rusher and they can they can probably keep ryan kerrigan as a third down specialist if he comes down off his number end so you know he's he's still doing that. He's gonna get paid a whole lot of money. I'm not sure that that money is really out there especially at this point in free agency so they didn't want to mortgage their future for for quarterback right. Now they wanted to keep the boat afloat. I that and so. I like what they have done. Specially on evens. Then when you consider the the sort of offense and the pre-snap that they can have with all those offensive playmakers. Now that curtis annuals there with terry corn. I really like with done.

"ron rivera" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Guys state and had a lot success. But i'm not sure if one here Really prepares you for the rigors of the nfl and he had a lot to learn and and he's got a ton understanding of how to prepare how to be a pro The young man has a terrific arm is got good athleticism. he's got he's got good movement skills and he just he just needs to understand learning growing and and mature and i think you know having you know hit almost say rock bottom it but you know at a low point in your career i think. Hopefully this helps because he. He's a good young man and he's just got to learn some things that will help them as a football player. He has a skill set. That can help him. And if he learns and grows and you know and and and somebody could mentor him and get him to do it. The right way I think he can help. Really do I think this also might be a good opportunity for him. And i just felt at the time that if party was the best thing For us both. And so hopefully you'll get a fresh start And he's hopefully learned a lesson or two that he can carry with them. That will help them and help them his new team. And then let's get to last night's game coaches. I'm sure the conversation of of your your. Your accomplishments got lost. Quite a bit In the aftermath of the game because of the insertion of nate saad feld into the game when it was winnable for both teams What did you think got when when saad trotter on the field last night. I didn't think anything of it i really did. I you know it's interesting when when one teams playing for something and somebody else is The other team can do whatever they want. in terms of Players they play plays a run. I think you know people get upset about it for whatever the reason is but maybe not understand that a coast is going to do what he thinks is best for his team's growth and development Going forward and so. I don't begrudge it because you know you're getting these situations people well you know. Look what happened. Yeah well look what happened to us. Two weeks ago. Nobody cared that. Alice couldn't play. Nobody cared that. That that terry maclaurin wasn't going to pay you know nobody. So let's make it even. Don't let your starters plan that that. That's what happens and so if a coach inside something you know. That's what he decides. I mean i've been in that situation in the past where i said. Hey let's play them all. Get them all out there giving opportunities you know but it's just you know i get it people wanna make something of it that's fine. They need something to talk about. That's fine you know. I've had people say you should never should have never gotten to play that. Seven eight one yet. We win a playoff game and we have a chance to win a second one You know And and the twenty four team season people. You shouldn't have got in but at the time we were hot we won four in a row to get there so you know for for for us to to to to tell people what they should do with their team to how they should do it. That's that's that's take. He does what he thinks is best for his team. Going forward ron rivera washington football team head coach here on the rich eisen show and you know i don't know how fair it was coach to throw a guy who hasn't played in three years on the other side of the line of scrimmage of chase young i mean he what he what he is doing right now is quite something. Can you compare it because again you know del. Rio dropped the name of ray lewis. When chris collins worth was calling the game last night saying that in terms of just leadership skills and grown ass man skills of this is what you know. He reminds. jack. You've been around some eighty five bears as well. Is there anybody that you can compare chase. Young to ron rivera. Oh i'll tell you what he most certainly is a different kind of football player. And you know maybe maybe as he is he grows his career. You might have somebody start comparing you know to lawrence taylor but I don't wanna go there yet. No i could understand why you wanna go there yet. But what what aspects of his game do you think reminds you of him. That his his love of the game the first of all he loves the game he absolutely loves everything about the game And he's got some some some some impact. Playability lost the coach right there and all of those young guys that came out early and you just wish you had a little bit more time to continue to grow and develop but we got him And we're going to keep working with them. Because i think he's he's a guy that can be a very special player someday. We're looking at is right now. Because he's a good player. We're looking at him right now. he went back on the field and knelt on the fifty yard. Line in his Championship is i. Guess is nfc east championship shirt. Just kind of soaking it. All in That's a different cat right there. Man i'll tell you that. That's just i'll tell you he's got that he's got that relentless motor but he's got to he's got this energy that's infectious To to to end the draws people to you know what. I'm saying just guys see the way he does things and they see guys pick it up and guys get going and guys feed off of it. You know it's crazy because he'll go over you know during the game he'll stand next to me and talk about things and then he'll go over and he'll stand next to Bill next two to one of the offense coaches the running backs coach. And he'll tell like holloway. His guys running man. I gotta keep them going or he'll stand next to kidneys..

Dallas Cowboys Still In Playoff Race With Win Over Eagles, Washington Loss
"Washington football team was in pole position yesterday. Had ron rivera defeated his old club. They would have clinched the nfc because the giants lost to the ravens. Instead here we go. Week seventeen cowboys. The giants the washington football team taking on philly the eagles the only team in the division. That has officially been eliminated from postseason contention. But you say the w. f. t. will w. i n. the nfc. I think they will because of the match up. I mean philly is out of the playoff race. Plus their offensive. Line is so decimated by injuries that they can't protect whomever's playing quarterback and with such a hellacious. Pass rush that washington bring. I think they will force jalen hurts into some mistakes and they have a chance to take care of business. They had that chances this last sunday yesterday against the panthers didn't take care of business but i think philly's a different problem for him and i think they can solve
Washington beaten by Panthers, fails to clinch NFC East
"Took the captaincy from Dwayne Haskins this week. They gave it to chase Young today, and that was pretty easy to see why, in today's 20 to 13 loss of the Carolina Panthers.

But of course, gave up 21st half points Chase. I feel like the defense. We just got a We got the You have to start faster earlier. I think that's the we can't wait to the second half to start fast, and that's something that we just know and something that you know we've been working on and we just got to get better at it. Yeah, but the offense didn't really help. They had four turnovers, three of which committed by Dwayne Haskins, who was benched in the fourth quarter in favor of Taylor. Hi, Nikki. And I'm sure his jersey sales about to go through the roof here is hey, looked pretty good in relief there in the fourth quarter, so coach Ron Rivera noncommittal about who will start under center for 69, Washington and Philadelphia next week with the NFC East title again on the line, the

James washington to catch the steelers while received some of the best in the business with run out the catch all been has to get the ball in their hands. They know exactly what to do with it. Fourteen nothing pittsburgh. Meanwhile from the comeback player of the year alex smith. That's the last thing we want to see bleeding profusely after being cleared. It's the other leg to quick nap. Critical moment final seconds of the first half of the clock. Ticking down. Alex smith getting sacked on a third-down play. No timeouts left the trying to run the field goal team out but the clock is going to be stopped by the officials and this may have been sneaky from alex smith. this sneaky. good better and move by. Alex realized that he doesn't have any time outs left and if they used the ball in play to probably not going to be able to get the feel law so retards off with the football. They got to stop the clock in the points. Before the you take a look. Ron rivera's yelling everybody's yelling but we're going to show it to you here. Watch alex smith again. Sneaky veteran move the official saying. Give me the ball. Alex smith is saying. I got other ideas. He takes that one himself. They have to look. He's laughing he knows. Exactly what is doing common knows what he's doing and in the end it results in three medical points. Dustin hopkins forty nine yards. It's up it's good. Fourteen three at the have a little momentum shift now oakland drive of the third smith. Watch cam simms. This might have been the biggest play for the washington football team in this game. And don't just take my word for mike. Tomlin talked about this after the game. Felt like he was a real turning point thirty yards on the catch and run a big first down in that would lead to this. How about logan thomas to the one converted quarterback out of college logan thomas with some great hands being able to get down to the one he's really turned into a professional title. They were punching in premier. So fourteen steelers fourth quarter at seventeen ten at smith. It's thomas wide open worldwide. That's a busted covers right there but don't fault the waas to football team alex smith to taking advantage of the miscues by the steelers. So we're all even now the steelers of a fourth and one on the twenty eighth. They're kick chris. Boswell is out the rookie. Matt right is there. And so mike tomlin elects to go for it a throw was to anthony mcfarland his miscue there and the washington football team takes over on downs and that leads to. This happened this catch. This is a big time catch right here by camps and being able to survive the ground one handed grab pressure situation. Can't do it any better than that. That's a big first down later in the drive. Dustin hopkins from forty five away at the first looks. It's going to hook but then it hangs and it's good to washington up twenty two seventeen but mike tomlin had used his timeouts. Well they will going to have plenty of time. But there's no time when this happens a no deflections your the game washington. Football team's defensive line.

"You're going to find a nickname for your team, so the crack and It sounded pretty interesting and okay. The kids will like it and that got washed away quickly because. The Washington redskins. They announced their new name change and. They said they were going to do this week and a half ago and I even said this yesterday before the news came out and I go. When are they going to announce this? I haven't heard anything. Maybe they just call themselves the Washington football club. That's what I said yesterday. I was sort of joking. And then it comes out. It's The Washington football team. and. It reminded me of the Abbott and Costello. WHO's on first skit? The team formerly known as the Redskins will be called The Washington football team for now. And I. Guess. You could understand why they'd simplify because. Players are reporting this week. They got to put something on their helmets. Apparently, they're just going to put a number up there instead of. Any kind of logo. But also you get the sense. There's some defiance by that owner. He didn't WanNa do this? I'll do it, but I'm going to do it on my timeframe. The team actually is gonNA. Make a Lotta money with this new look, and it's a lot cleaner looking which makes you wonder why they resisted for so long, but Like anything sports, the move will look a whole lot better if the team is good got a name. There's still a lot of work left to do in Washington. Like win, but I was told last night by source. Who Lives in DC and I, said Hey. Give me an idea here of Daniel Steiner's timeframe and that he came up with this Washington football team, and my source said to be fair to the redskins. He said while I'm rarely fair to the redskins because they don't deserve it. This is a situation where to try to turn this around. Get a logo. Get everything printed up. Have Merchandise you know. That can be a six to eight months month. PROG process, but he did say my source. This is also a situation where this team has known for quite some time, they should be in the exploratory. Process of finding their nickname, and then what are the logo is going to look like? And trademarking these they didn't trademark anything. Everything was trademarked, and they didn't have a nickname that they could go with now. The Golden State Warriors. I think our trademarking warriors because they were concerned. That Washington was going to do warriors. But I still think if you're going to do something if you're Washington when you do this, you want to have a nickname that begins with the letter. R. Therefore, Daniel Snyder still keep that script are in the logo of Washington's football team, but we'll talk to Ron Rivera. Who seems to be the spokesper? Ron Rivera just got there six months ago and he has to be the spokesperson. Now we did ask for Daniel Snyder. Grateful that the Washington. Redskins did give us Ron. Rivera who just got there? And I said it's a shame that he's the spokesperson for the team because he has nothing to do with this environment is nothing to do with this nickname. He just took over the team. It's tough enough to win. In the NFL now you go into this situation there. But Ron Rivera will join US coming up. mclovin got a poll question for me today.

You understand what I'm looking for. CaN'T WITH SCOTT. He's parcel hopefully. We can take advantage with our with our new tape. You know a lot is in there because it's it makes sense. You know we. We talked about the Kyle. Allen Trade on Tuesday's show And my feeling is that I loved the trade. I loved fifth. Rounder faure need. Which is a quarterback on this team? And I love the fact that Kyle Allen not only familiar with the system which is what Ron Rivera. Just told you that. He's very familiar with the system. And this is a unique off season that we are entering here. Perhaps no minicamps no. Ota's who knows could be a condensed training camp by the time we get there although let's hope that's not the case But somebody that knows the system was going to be important to this whole thing And I think the guy can play and they clearly like him and have confidence in in and they know him and so to get him for a fifth. Rounder to me was a no brainer By the way I mentioned this with Tommy the other day and I and I looked at a little bit more of Kyle Allen from last year. He's a playmaker man. He can make plays he can make all the throws to What he does in his bad performances is. He does make some throws into tight windows. Where you're like. Nah You can't make that throw. He makes some head-scratching throws that ended up. You know being intercepted but you could say that about a lot of first year quarterbacks. I knew it was the second year but first year of really playing but anyway that was Ron Rivera on Kyle Allen now here was Ron Rivera when asked about Dwayne Haskins is doing haskins.

"And He'd be two years removed from his last game. So time has not worked for Trent Williams in his agent his agent in in all honesty from afar without knowing every detail of this I concede that but it really looks like the agent mess this up seven ways to Sunday really screwed it up you know and this is a situation where. Trent's lost a lot of money and now is on the verge of potentially losing a lot more. My position hasn't changed. If I'm the redskins right now there's no football going on there's no OTA's or mini camps. That are GONNA be scheduled. There's nobody even in the building. Okay so I'm waiting until the draft at the very least. I'm waiting until the draft win team decides or figures out. They can't get the left tackle that they wanted. And now maybe is ready to deal a little bit more than what they were talking about dealing again. The problem is is that trend's going to have to lowers contractual requirements and his demands. You know per Albert breer. He said this is one hundred percent. The reason a trait hasn't gotten done is because Trent's asking for way too much so he's going to get realistic about what he's worth. And then maybe the redskins will get an offer that they can accept and maybe that happens before the draft but at this point I would bet that it happens after the draft in the point that some of you have made to me in it saying that this is the point you made last year. Which is you can be patient because teams get desperate after a preseason where they lose somebody to injury or maybe they lose somebody to injury early in a season And you can get it done early in the season. That's true but I do think there is a sense from this new regime that they want to move on from this. There's also the issue where in this one part where the redskins don't necessarily have you know total leverage in this situation and that is they've got to figure out what they're going to do it left tackle. They don't have a left tackle right now. The only one under contract it can start. Is Trent Williams? You know other than that. They they signed this guy. Cornelius Lucas for depth purposes. So they've got a you know there's some incentive for them to move on as well as quickly as possible so that they can go out and sign. Donald PENN RESIGNED DONALD PENN. Or make another move or by the way have it as a priority in the draft which they should have it as a priority in the draft anyway right because even if trump comes back and plays this one season for twelve and a half million bucks you know. They're they're probably not going to franchise tag him next year. John Crime tweeted something out yesterday that I thought Sawn in and made a note of he said yes the Redskins did talk to left tackle. Jason Peters at one point as of now doesn't seem like anything's going to happen. I think there's some curiosity and wanting wanting to see what they have in Jaren Christian as well assuming Trent Williams trade of course Jason Peters is according to spot rack and get a deal. Eight to nine million. He's one of those guys Erin. I would figure gets a deal done around draft time or after when teams figure out what they can or can't get in the draft but eight to nine million is real money for one year for a thirty eight year. Old Left tackle If I didn't mention this the other Dale mentioned it again. Jason Peters is represented by Vincent Taylor the gentleman who represents Trent Williams doesn't mean the Redskins can't work out a deal with Jason Peters. You know it's a totally different situation. And obviously they've worth worked with Vincent Taylor before in the past with Trent Williams In fact I think I think Morgan Moses were maybe it's Christian himself Jaren Christian is actually a Vincent Taylor Client as well But Jason Peters would be one answer. But you can't sign Jason Peters until you know what the Trent Williams situation is now. You might be able to go out and see in re-sign Donald Penn you know before you have resolution to the Trent Williams deal because that's not nearly as much money and Donald Penn was well liked. Cooley pointed this out when he was on the podcast last week. You know his former college teammate. At Utah State Donald Penn play pretty well last year. You know he really did played pretty well. So that's essentially the latest right on the Trent Williams Situation I. If I'm the REDSKINS I don't have to do anything now. The more public Trent Williams and his agent become about this situation the more it seems to be back firing a little bit on Trent Williams. You know the more and more the FAN base starts to turn towards you. Know what Trent you know? This has been about money and we are glad you're healthy and were sympathetic to what you went through but You know you better lower your demands. The Red Skins can get something back. I think that's what the sense of a significant percentage of the fan base are others of you and you've made this very clear or like dude this. Just take the fifth rounder and move on. The problem is is that his contract demands right. Now have to come down to get a deal done anyway. At least according to Albert breer so there you go That's the latest on Trent Williams bringing to get some other redskins news here momentarily including Ron Rivera's conversation on Charlotte Radio Station. From two days ago said a couple of things about Kyle Alan in about Dwayne Haskins about Cam Newton. We'll get to that. Julia Donaldson had some stuff on our radio station yesterday. About Alex Smith but Adam Schefter was on with Mike Greenberg this morning on Greenberg show get up and one of the conversations they had Was about the NFL draft general managers. Don't want the NFL draft to take place on April twenty third which is now less than a month away. During the during this you know essential period of time we're locked out from facilities CETERA. They don't feel they can prepare Adequately for the NFL draft. Not only that they feel that some you know certain teams might get an advantage because some states are on lockdown. They wouldn't be able to even if the NFL let them in. They wouldn't be able to while others would be able right so Disadvantaged situations based on the state they're working cetera et Cetera but the NFL's going to move forward with the draft. Adam schefter and Mike Greenberg were having a conversation about this and ultimately it got to an idea that schefter had that Aaron and I went to respond to here it is. I'll give you my idea. Greenie basically how about having one round of the draft on every night so we have seven nights seven rounds basically the Hanako. Nfl drafts. That's what you're talking about in time and there's no rush to get through anything. It gives teams on the clock more time. It's not like coaches have to have players in many camps next week they don't there are no many camps. There's no off season program. There's no other. Sporting events on the calendar have the draft occur one round per night for one straight week in every round would be a big deal that we well we have to get it to be exactly the Hanukkah of the NFL draft. We'd have to add around right. 'cause Hannukah's eight days eight nine. I really wanted to split the first round into two nights. We could do that. We have a we have one a and one B on the first round You know look we need content and we need it. Spread out in each one of these rounds you know they could actually extend the time in between picks usually it goes. I think from isn't it ten minutes in the first round down to five for the subsequent rounds it might be seven. Whatever like that yet or you could do the full ten minutes you know for the for the next Several nights I think you're going to lose people like you typically do anyway. By the time you get to the fourth round you know those first two nights you know of the first round the first night and then rounds two and three on that Friday night are highly rated. Now they're also in prime time. Yes Very highly rated television shows. And you're talking about players that you've heard of M- for the most part and important picks and then you get to Saturday at noon when they have in recent years gone from rounds. Four through seven where you know. It's IT'S A. It's a lightning round to man. It's moving quickly and you get to that point. Aaron where when you're in the fifth and sixth round you know they're having conversations about first rounders and second rounders from the previous two days and then they'll catch up with like the last five picks been so it would be you know more about okay here in around six on our sixth night of coverage. You know the Las Vegas Raiders are on the clock a look. Here's the long snapper they're gonNA take. Yeah I don't know I mean. I do think there's an idea there if you want to say not all seven. If you say I first round gets so night second round gets it so night third night gets zone night and then maybe you do four through seven or four and five and six and seven. You know something along those lines. I think your original trying to fit it in two days. Eight nights of Hanukkah is actually better. I think splitting the first round. Yeah into two nights is much better programming because that first round because you have a longer period of time in between picks And maybe you could even extend the time in between six to twelve minutes or whatever You know the remember that first round is three and a half hours right so cut it in half and make you know the show you know. Essentially an hour and forty five minutes on two consecutive nights that would be. That's a pretty good idea. Actually you know how that first pick of the second round after they made that second round there. How much speculation there is about traces of the middle of the first round. We've completed the first sixteen picks and at number seventeen. I don't even know who's picking it number seventeen. You know all of the conversation overnight hours to trade tech yeah. I think that that would really add some drama to it. I think it would be actually a really good idea in this particular draft to do that. you know now you may get that situation right. Where were you do at the end of the first round anyway between number thirty two and the first pick of the second round that the first the team on the clock has a lot of time to think about it? A lot of time to consummate a trade. And so what you might get. Is You know the team. That's picking sixteen in and pulling it up right now. Lanna pick sixteen son happy. They wouldn't be happy because the cowboys are seventeen and they would have all this time but almost whatever the seventeenth pick would be more valuable than the in that situation. You could be the fact that could be because of the fact that you have twenty four hours to make your pick instead of ten minutes or fifteen minutes or whatever makes that more valid. I think these teams have all of the first-round pretty much simulated so many different ways. Anyway that that you had twenty four hours just to go all right possibilities to contact. I like that idea from a consumer point. I think it makes. I think that would be exciting. And by the way let's be honest. The first round of the draft is really exciting but when you get into the latter portion of the first round and it's eleven thirty at night right you know. It gets to the point where it's like all right. Let's get this first round over. I think they should split the first round into into nights. And that's I think that's makes a lot of sense. And then you could you know you could potentially split the round two into two nights and then do round three through seven you know in one fell swoop with shorter periods of time. I don't know you just you just do the whole thing behind closed doors and you reveal you. Just put the whole draft on tape delay and you reveal it that way that way. No there's no Unfair advantage there. I think it'd be exciting to do it that way. I love it. I do All right Let's get back to some redskins Stuff that we haven't gotten to didn't have a chance to get to yesterday Ron Rivera Was on a radio station in Charlotte. All right A show that he's familiar with Some of you tweeted. 'cause I played these sound bites on the radio show yesterday and some of you tweeted something that I I will quickly respond to your like dude. Why do the Redskins let all of their key? People keep doing radio shows outside the market. And they're never on anybody's shows locally. Well I mean. That's a bit of an exaggeration. We've had you know radio guests over the years but yes. There has been a very antagonistic relationship between sports. Talk Radio especially our station over the years with Redskins PR. I can't you know. Can't sugar coat. It there has been for what reason will never really understand. We have a lot of theories as to why but Yeah it's it's not been from lack of asking over the years Every single week a request goes out for various people to come on. And you know Tony. Wiley was the PR guy for many years. He was not very helpful to sports..

Essentially Ron Rivera is trying to build a new culture. You One answer. You went out if you want in. Then you've got to be realistic about your value. You know if you're going to tell us you WANNA be compensated at a quarterback level. Well this conversation doesn't need to move on much further now with respect to Diana's saying Trent in his reps notice the team met with free agent players before meeting with him which wasn't a strong first impression of the new regime Get over it man you know. Stop being so sensitive. It reminded me of the story. That Jerry Brewer wrote Sometime last year. We're in talking about Trent Williams. He said one of the things that really you know sort of upset. Trent was when they drafted Jaren Christian in the third round. And I remember coming on the podcast Aaron and saying seriously like you're thirty one years old about to become thirty two don't you think they're eventually going to draft a guy you know third round fourth round that they hope can replace you when you're too old to play and he's the third render. They didn't take a left tackle. The first or second round first round the trade for somebody. They didn't sign somebody new in free agency and by the way it turns out Christians very good or at least not yet but you know him and his reps noticing. The team met with free agent players before meeting with him. Dude get over it man stopping sensitive. You know how. `Bout a couple of things number one. Let me not be a revisionist historian here in say that. When Ron Rivera was talking about like this February seventh start date to figuring everything out. I was sort of like what? Why haven't you already started to work things out? You got hired a month ago. Why aren't well? I mean he wasn't that they weren't working and I did suggest like one of my first calls would have been to Trent Williams and his agent to say hey is your chance. This can work out. Do you WANNA play. Yes or no And I was a little bit curious as to why Ron didn't reach out to To Trent right away but you know eventually he. Did you know a caller actually called today? I think made a really good point. You know when I hadn't really sort of considered and that is why didn't Trent pick up the phone and call run right. One Ron got hired. You know a a mature player looking to get this situation. Resolved should have called him directly trend to run not agent to Ron Trent. Calling up Ron and saying hey welcome to Washington congratulations I'd love to sit down and talk to you about my situation as soon as possible. I want you know you to be able to have some clarity as to where I am and me the same thing It certainly didn't turn out well last year for the team or for me and I'd like to start off on a good foot. When are you available? You know he could have done that too but Anyway then we get. You're going to say something I was going to bring this up at the end. But when you say that you know Ron Rivera basically said you're in or you're out and if you're out I don't want you around. I think that is where there is a little bit of disconnect here and obviously it goes to. I don't know that he said that. No I know. But that's kind of been the message that has Ryan. He's got a culture to change the culture change right so I think that's where there is at least a little bit of disconnect here because yes you want to get value but if you're also trying to create this culture where your inner you're out trenice clearly out and I think that's something that I don't think is is agents should be bring up but it is something as agent. Damn St- around in that statement. He put out that says look. You're trying to create this culture. You say you're in you're out well we're out so let us go somewhere just like you did for. Quinton Dunbar right but but the point is from the team standpoint. That's fine but you've got to do your part to get out to right which means you can't ask in. Bay asking for a contract that no one's GonNa pay you because if you're asking for a contract that nobody's GonNa pay you will then nobody's GonNa Trade for you right and we are not going to release you and get nothing back for you. Trent I mean we. We got a fifth rounder for Dunbar. Which by the way too low I think we talked about that. On on Tuesday I mean he has to be willing to do what Dunbar did. Dunbar did not get a new contract. He's presumably going to play out his contract in Seattle and then get the new contract right so he tries to be willing to do well. We don't know that Seattle's not GonNa give him a contracts. He didn't do it immediately. They didn't do it immediately. But they but the Ra- but you know to be honest with you for a guy that's making three and a half million for a fifth rounder. It's a different conversation according to give up a first or a second rounder. You and you want to know that you're going to have that player for more than one year right. You know so You get the point to the next part of this. Which was Trent has always respected and liked owner? Dan Snyder there have never been issues and he wants to return one day possibly part of be part of the ring of honor. He wants the relationship to be healthy. So this gets back to what I've alluded to even said directly A couple of times and I think other people that are familiar with sort of the situation have the same feeling In that is that what you see. Trenton is agent trying to do here. And by the way the Trent The trends agent Vincent Taylor sort of suggested the end of that letter that he put out the other day about how much Trent respects and loves Dan. Snyder trance appealing to Dan. Snyder to just move them for anything. Hey help me out man do me a solid. Let me get the hell out of here. You know even if it's a fifth rounder or fourth round just take it you know But what's been really interesting over the last year and a half now. Almost certainly last year is just how silent Dan. Snyder's been all been on all of this. You know when. Trent returned and ripped Bruce Allen a new one and actually refer to it remember. Let's not forget. He brought race into the conversation. You know instead Bruce Allen you know doesn't handle it like the way Bruce Allen handles black players in general You know there were some that. That was a serious accusation that day that he returned right before the deadline to make sure that last year's contract accrued Here's what I believe to be true that Dan Snyder ease just as upset with Trent Williams. As Bruce Allin was that organizationally the people that have all of the information on this are really really angry they really feel betrayed in many ways by Trent Williamson. The way this was handled. You know there's a feeling internally that they did do the right thing that they set up. Doctors Appointments Trent did not attend you. Know to get the The growth on his scalp looked at look. I don't know which side is true telling the truth. And which side isn't I just know for a fact that the redskins organization Bruce Allin for sure and I believe Dan Snyder to. They were not happy with what happened last year. You Know Trent. Before he returned through sort of his surrogates indirectly Santana St Angelo Hall. Other people you know claiming this was all about distrust because of the way. His medical situation was handled when the redskins no that. Initially this was a contract in a request for a contract a negotiation in an extension which Bruce Allin balked at and then it became very much a medical situation. You Know Charley casserly Was on it was on with DOC and Alan on on our radio station on Tuesday afternoon and he said you know this has always been about money and Charlie was one of the first people to say This is all about money. This is not about the medical situation. This is all about money and a lot of people push back because remember back then. This was most of you. Most of the fans believing the redskins are stupid. They're mean they're dysfunctional. All of which is true and has been true. This is their fault. Well slowly but surely I think the tides turned here and I think we have seen Trent Williams first of all come back and while through sort of players that he played with former teammates. They were saying this has nothing to do with money. It's all about medical. Then he comes back you know by that deadline in season last year and actually admits that it's at least partially about wanting a new contract. Okay and now we get the reports about the kind of money he's asking for and the demands he's been making I think there is a sense. You know from the from many in the fan base that you know maybe this was more about Trent. Maybe this had a lot to do with the way he handled it as much as the team handled it. Look what isn't going to change is the fact that the redskins would've been much better off. Organizationally had they moved on from Trent Williams early in two thousand nineteen like right at the end of the twentieth eighteen season before any of this became an issue. You know before. Even he had surgery on his scalp. They should have been in reboot mode. I felt as most of you know but even when we got into the he said you know and there was no no answer coming back from the Redskins In terms of the the accusations about the medical and the distrust over the medical handling of this they should traded you know. If they've made them available we would have known for sure what the offers were but there were reports it certainly. Houston was interested and we know what they gave up for Laremy Tunsil they. Cleveland was interested in the reports that they were willing to give up the first New England was certainly willing to look at a late. I Before they found out what trends contractual demands were And it may have been really hard to trade him. If trump was going to demand a contract would have been much easier though right for a team to say. Look we're GONNA look at the contract. Let's complete destrade. Let's get you in here. Okay let's get you started. We you got two years left in this deal. We're going to extend you. And maybe Trent would have just gone with it and let the trade completed without a new contract as long as you get out of town but I think the redskins were really really upset about this I think they felt like they had been loyal to him during two different suspensions for we'd And that they felt betrayed by the information that was coming out that he was accusing them of being medically negligent In the handling of a situation that obviously was serious. That was obviously traumatic for him. You know we heard it and he spelled it out when he returned in last October But that they you know felt betrayed by some of the things that were going on. They felt that this was his response to them. Saying we're not talking about a new contract with two years left on it you sign. This deal will talk contract after the twenty nineteen season. But we're not going to extend you now. We're not doing that. You know by the way you know if the Redskins were more proactive than we think on the scalp situation. Maybe one of the reasons that they didn't want to talk about a contract extension right away. Is they wanted the medical thing to be cleared up first. You know they wanted. They wanted that stuff taken care of so anyway. We we then. Let's not forget that the redskins were all in on a third party investigation of this entire situation. The League was going to a fund a third party and independent investigation of Trent Williams versus the Redskins Redskins. Were all in on this. I think they felt like would it would certainly What would be revealed was that? They handled this appropriately. And Trent Williams was the one that said that. Don't want these this third party investigation right. He he backed out of it and he said at the time. I don't WanNa relive the trauma when I went through and that's understandable but at the same time it's smelled a little bit is a bit sketchy you know. If he was a hundred percent dead right about this start to finish that the team was negligent. On all of this I think he would have been pushing for this independent investigation to prove everything that he had said. was correct. So time has not worked for Trent Williams. It hasn't worked in terms of the way people feel about this because as more and more comes out it's apparent that it's been more and more about the money then some of you thought and he lost between ten and fifteen million dollars by holding out and he's now in a situation where with the new. Cba The holdouts situation is ugly for him. He can't hold out next year if he does. The contract won't accrue and it'll be sitting in the same position a year from now. I think I mentioned this the other day and if I didn't I'll say it. Now Trent Williams is in a situation where he has very little leverage he either has to drop these contract demands and then hope did a team will give the redskins with the redskins won or he's going to have to contemplate either playing or holding out again and if he holds out again his career is near over two years. You know giving up tw- you know at that point it would be twenty two million bucks minimum in two years. Who's going to want to sign him in twenty twenty one? Who's GonNa WanNa play him in twenty twenty one? You know you would then have to ask the serious question of how much he really wants to play football..

"Beat lefty dresell how about Anthony? Ren donut art monk Here's the best one. We both predicted Alan. Iverson is a fourteen seed would advance. And he's GonNa Face Sean Taylor in a second round matchup with the winner playing Gary Clark. John Riggins second round match up now. I think rigaud trounced ports in the opening round. I think we both thought rigaud would get through that. And I think we're GONNA get through Gary Clark as well but a John riggins either again Sean Taylor or Alan Iverson Sweet. Sixteen matchup would be really interesting. I think we're go would prevail. I think he would I as I said. I think Taylor has a chance for the final four here just because of you know Sean Taylor. Yeah so you like Taylor over Iverson here. I do like Taylor over. I think I think I would lean in your direct weller. I like him to win. I don't know if I would vote that direction. Just because I think again. Iris and criminally under seated. And he was just. He was so amazing when he was here he was a he. I agree with you very very understated. Taylor's going to win the vote other second round matchups. By the way the the upsets in the first round Alan Iverson was an upset is a fourteen seed We also had bobby. Beth is a twelve seed upsetting Frank Howard which I think we we may have had There were a couple of nine seeds over eights. Morgan wootten Got By bobby Mitchell. And then there was another nine seed that also advanced Ryan Zimmerman knocked out Rod Langley and Zimmerman. Now Gets Joe Gibbs in the second round Brian Mitchell as an eleven seed. Beat Charlie Taylor so that was also a first friend upset although I I don't think of think of it as an upset now it's Brian Mitchell against Sunny Johnson. In a second round match up you also have Darryl Green and Joe Theismann in a one eight matchup and Dexter Manley Against Sammy. Baugh in a seven to match get another one Niklas backstrom. In Elvin Hayes Backstrom. The succeed would not surprise me if he advanced. I would predict. Backstrom is advancing in that one. Yeah I mean in fact I think some of the you know the winners Strasbourg in over Doug Williams You know Back backstrom over. Rizzo you know is an indication of a lot of cap fans definitely participating in this Hope be beat. Bryce Harper in the first round. That's not surprising. Okay probably not rice harvest. Exactly but Sean Taylor. You know reflective of certainly We'll see Taylor against Iverson and then with one of those having the opportunity to face one of the all-time legends in this town. John Regan's and Sherzer Jacoby are the two most interesting second round matches that one I could see going either way. Shire's Jacoby Nat Scherzer's going to advance in fact let me just go to. Let's see where the voting is right now because the voting is already underway Here it is. The the voting for these second round. Matchups started early this morning in so far with not a lot of votes. In Two hundred seventy votes in Scherzer's got a fifty seven percent to forty two percent lead a fifty seven point four to forty two point six over Jacoby Elvin Hayes is getting you know beaten pretty handily by Backstrom so we had that one. How about Beth against Big John? Big John's got the lead over battered. Darryl Green thighs men green right now.

Over unseld early Ovechkin You know easily right now over Morgan. Wootten Rigaud see this already. Regan's has the biggest lead here in the second round matchups that I've checked so far. He's crushing Gary Clark Right now gibbs has a big lead over Ryan Zimmerman Gary Williams with a big lead over Katie. Lucky big lead and in the matchup that we just talked about. Sean Taylor Alan Iverson. It's not even close. You're right Sean. Taylor crushing Alan Iverson. Right now the voting is very much. We're only a couple of hundred votes on all of these. 'cause the voting just started a few hours ago but Goto at team nine eighty on twitter or the team nine eighty dot com and vote for this. This is actually Going to be a lot of fun. We'll have more discussion about this. We get further into it All right Lots of redskins news to get to. I'm going to start with the New Stuff on Trent Williams. You know we talked about the other day. The agents statements Vincent Taylor the age agent statements about the situation. He's not happy or the agent spoke Diana Rossini's got some stuff from the agent is well get to her stuff. Here momentarily This from Albert breer though on the Trentham Situation Albert breer rights four s is m M. Qb Monday morning quarterback and this actually comes from his mailbag. Somebody asks a question and then he answers the question and I found this very early this morning. The question which came from a Redskins Fan. What is the trade value for Trent Williams and Albert breer answered that question as follows quote? My understanding is there have been suitors out there for Trent Williams. The trouble is and I'll be very clear about this. Almost one hundred percent. This is about his contract situation last year. Words circulated that Williams ask the Redskins for quarterback money and the redskins found interest over the last few weeks Williams. Only to have suitors. Push away from the table. When they were apprised of Williams's financial demands Breer continues thing is asking another team for first or second round. Pick for player is a lot. You're giving up a piece of capital that can bring in a young top player under costs control for the next four or five years or maybe multiple players if you trade The pick and move down and get more picks so the player being dealt for has to be good and really valuable to begin with but if then that player wants to break the bank to Andy's in his thirty s again. It's a lot that's not to say. Williams may not may not have a legitimate beef with the team or that. He isn't worth more than he's making. It's just that if he really wants to be traded he has to be realistic about it and work with the team since he's under contract if he's more worried about making top dollar than played ear out and hit the market next March. It's that simple. That was Albert breer answering a question from a redskin fan in his Monday morning. Quarterback column Mailbag so look at the big takeaway from this is that from his understanding. This is almost one hundred percent about his contract demands. Okay that the reason a deal hasn't been worked out is that Trent Williams is asking for too much. The teams aren't willing to pay and he mentions that word circulated last year that Williams had asked the redskins for quarterback money will J. P. Finley if you remember on this very podcast said that the amount that Trent Williams had asked the redskins four was even hard to say was obscene And I mentioned a couple of days later that I had learned that it had been at least twenty five million a year if not north of twenty five million per year while the Redskins you know Scott at that. They're not paying. Trent Williams quarterback money one of the things. We've talked a lot about and this is where I think the agents really done Trent a disservice in that. Is You know the holdout last year cost. Trent you know somewhere between ten and fifteen million dollars with split the difference and call it twelve and a half million dollars. It's a lot of money that the holdout cost him. And all the while from my understanding the agent Vincent Taylor was suggesting to Trent that it would be okay that they would be able to make it up with the next deal. After he finally got traded in the off season well again I know I've beaten this this horse dead multiple times but there is no team out there that will feel obligated to compensate. Trent for what he lost last year. They couldn't give two shits about that doesn't matter to them. The redskins don't really care about that. Either you know even if they are partly culpable for the holdout for the deterioration of the relationship. He didn't play for them last year. Had two years left on their own on his deal. They don't know him for what he lost last year. In so trying to break the bank with quarterback money's in attempt to get back what he lost last year He's not getting that money back. He is thirty two years old. He just sat out a full season. And he's he can certainly say I'm one of the better left tackles in football. You sort of have a hard time. Saying he's the best left tackle in football and somebody I forget who it was. You know tweeted me and said You keep saying that you know. He hasn't been the best left tackle in football. That's for football people to say well first of all we can have opinions of her own on this show but the bottom line is. He's made one all pro team and it was the second team in. Twenty fifteen and I know that's writers but the all pro team is taken more seriously because the pro bowl voting is essentially a popularity contest with fans and with players Anyway I digress. There the bottom line here is Trent. Williams is going to have to lower his contractual demands. If a deal is going to have any chance of getting done now Diana Rossini had a ton on this as well She had a long Tweet yesterday along thread about some of the things that she has learned recently. I'll just read you the entire thread. It started with. And we've had Diane on the podcast on the radio show and Diana really is plugged into the team. It starts his follows quote. It has been made clear to me. There is no salvageable relationship between the Washington redskins and Trent Williams. I've spoken to multiple sources from both sides. And here's where it stands. Williams met with Ron Rivera for about ten to fifteen minutes a couple of weeks ago and afterwards. There was not a feeling between the two that this was going to work. Trent his reps noticed the team met with free agent players before meeting with him. Which wasn't a strong first impression of the new regime. Sources say there are still players now on the on the roster that Washington coaches still haven't met with and that this wasn't intentional per sources meaning not meeting with Trent or meeting with others. Before Trent she continues Diana Rossini. Trent has always respected liked owner. Dan Snyder there have never been issues. As former captain the seven time pro bowler really wants to be able to move on from Washington but still return one day and possibly be part of the ring of honor. He wants the relationship to be healthy. She continues the redskins shopped Williams leading up to the Columbine and had interest per sources days after the combine. The club allowed Williams's seek a trade partner. Since then Williams Williams is agency or agent found team. Who WANTED TO DO BUSINESS? I'm told Washington tried to negotiate but believe that they can't just give a player like Trent away for small value in return from what I learned. Washington believes they have been flexible. And this is on Williams's agency. The agency believes Washington has been inconsistent in their ask. So there you go That from Diana Rossini. So let's let's go through that first of all when she talked about the meeting that Ron Rivera and Williams had lasted for just ten to fifteen minutes. A couple of weeks ago and that there is a feeling between the two that this wasn't going to work You know again. This is obviously a guess. But if part of the conversation was Trent what are you looking? For and Trent said. I'm looking for quarterback money or the number that he gave out with quarterback money. Will I can sort of understand why that conversation would have been super short like Ron Rivera? Busies juggling a lot of balls right now like it ain't GonNa work. Trent wants too much money. We're not paying you twenty five million dollars a year. We're not paying you quarterback money by the way quarterback money can mean up to thirty million plus. Now you know. Essentially.

"He needs to play in a vertical passing game that is complemented with a dominant nominee running attack. When I look at Washington redskins and I look at how Ron Rivera Built Carolina Panthers very similar cam had running ability but in the end then it was dominant run game? A physical smashmouth running attack. Defense led the way. And then you have the quarterback that can make plays if he builds it in that light. I think they can win. Games Washington all right fair enough. So you're okay with it. I've Okay we wait ask is absolutely I. Don't know enough about him I just I hear. He's not a grinder. I know everybody that plays that position. You have to make a decision. Do I WANNA be a celebrity or do I want to be a dominant elite. NFL quarterback back. If you want to be an elite quarterback that you gotta bypass some of the other stuff some of the endorsements some of the celebrity stuff to do all the dirty work as a decision that he will have have to make and that will be a conversation. Then I'm sure Ron Rivera will have with the Wayne Haskins very early in the tenure. Who Do you want to be? What do you WanNa compass because if you really want to win the ring you have to be a guy that is the first one in last one out because the reputation now is that's not the case it look and so sometimes that can change bl?

The second thing pressure didn't use effect Brady and his production in fact when you blitz Brady you pay for it. Oh that was the rep forever this year. We're seeing the pressure the blitz that coming after him affects them more than it ever has. Some of that is owned receivers achievers but a lot of it is really on him now is saying that.

"Everybody welcome back from the break. Little Bear is settled in. I think he wanted some food some food in. He's calmed down a bit for those of you. That are curious how the puppy things gone. Pretty good he's He's learning. He's listening he's hungry clearly. And now he's starring in podcast so good for him but on the subject of bears and other NFC NFC teams and their mascots. That's my horrible Segue Carolina. Panthers announced on Tuesday that they were parting ways with head. Coach Ron Rivera era. As you know Ron Rivera had been a member of the bears. They're nineteen eighty five bears Ron Rivera. Salata coaches came from there but around very had been with the Carolina Panthers since two thousand eleven that was the year that the drafted Cam Newton. The first overall pick oversaw a lot of success and Carolina. At one point they went back to back to back and south champions Really high points. Certainly that two thousand fifteen season where they went fifteen. One beat the cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. That was Tony. Romo's last start by the way it was was actually came to. The cowboys were favored in as weirdly as that was good times. Good Memories but Cam Newton being hurt this season lots of factors it certainly questionable actionable that the panthers would choose to fire Ron Rivera in some people's minds but other people get it I mean he's he's he has an ad success and on the subject of his success. Because it's worth mentioning is Ron Rivera. Now has almost a decade's worth of head coaching experience that it was twelve years ago. Thirteen years ago when this off season approaches when we're in the offseason of twenty twenty that Ron Rivera Rivera interviewed for the then Vacant Dallas Cowboys Head coaching job and it was of course Wade Phillips that ultimately got that gig and I would argue that that was the last time the cowboys head coaching. The job was totally open for search because in two thousand ten the following offseason the beginning of two thousand eleven. When the cowboys were looking for head coach it was obviously? There was going to be Jason Gould especially after he went five. And three is the interim so the last time that things were to truly totally up for grabs was when Ron Rivera interviewed in two thousand and seven. Now he didn't get the job then but he did get the panthers job for years later and so he's been there a long time and I was curious so I looked up his resume. Compared to Jason Garrett also wrote about this at the site if you want to check it out block other boys dot com now Ron Rivera since two thousand eleven because he Jason Goss both took over full time as mentioned and Jason was the interim cowboys coach over the second. Half of two thousand ten. So we're not counting those games. But Ron Rivera. Since then went seventy six seventy six wins sixty three losses and the lone tie three division titles mentioned and the One Super Bowl appearance where they lost to the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning's final game now Jason Garrett has been the cowboys head coach over the same stretch of time full time he has seventy eight wings so to more than Ron Rivera sixty two losses one less than Ron Rivera and does not have a tie which is why the math is a little bit weird. Jason also has three division titles of course has the opportunity to season to earn a fourth. And while Ron Rivera has been to the Super Bowl at the very least east Jason Garrett has as you know never been to an NFC championship game. So the question becomes while Ron Rivera is capable of being fired why I is Jason Garrett and I tell you what I've said a lot of things would be the most cowboys this whatever-ever and if if Jason endured is not fired but ultimately just doesn't have his contract renewed that will be the ultimate sort of cowboys way to get rid of him. You know what I mean like if the cowboys just decide Oh you know what. We're not gonna not going to fire. You Know Jason. Yeah we'll just not gonNA bring back and he technically wasn't fired that will be the most obvious thing of all time but it is a fair question I think to ask. Why Ron Ron Rivera? Time is up with the panthers and Jason Girth is not with the cowboys. Attorney has a lot to do with the ownership. Obviously the current panthers have changed owners now owned by David Tepper And Jerry Jones still resides the Dallas cowboys. But you look at that. That doesn't bode well for Jason Garrett and again you can you can all these stats. You can talk about wins losses and records and whatnot not but it ultimately is going to come down to whether or not the Dallas Cowboys win the Super Bowl. This season if they do. I think Jason Garrett safe if they don't well he's going to be like Ron Rivera. I don't I know that Ron Rivera would be illegitimate coaching candidate for the cowboys. If they do move on from Jason Garrett I have to imagine that Rivera will be regarded as an option because people will look and say. Oh yeah well you know. He didn't have CAM in two thousand. Nineteen you know. He's still a good coach and etc and people will find reasons. I mean that's the way sort of the coaching circles and cycles go. But I don't know I think if you want a new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. I don't know that you want it to be Ron Rivera. I don't know that you want to defensive coach. Maybe that is the case. Maybe the cowboys say you know what we're GONNA in a keep killing moron. He's going to sort of take control of the offense. Let's get somebody in here. Somebody who who has been to a super bowl somebody who knows what they're talking about somebody who players respect those those people around the NFL and somebody you can whip this defense into shape at Mossy. But let's let's pay some focus. Pay attention to this week's game again cowboys on the road owed against the Chicago. Bears Tomorrow Mignona on Thursday. No practice for the following members of the bears Prince Amukamara Ben. Dan Brown Accor- Taylor. Gabriel Bobby Massie and Danny Trevathan. If you're curious those are the same players who did not practice on Monday. There was limited. Participation for Belong Nichols tells. The bears defensive tackle. Let's move to the cowboys side of the injury report no practice for Jeff Heath once again no practice for late and vander. She'll get there in a second no practice for Antwon Woods Limited. Did I say Tony Parlor. We'll get to twenty two and no practice for Sean Lee. That to me seems like that day. Remember that today or oh yesterday. Tuesday was sort of like Friday for the couch. That's kind of the vet. You know. Way Sean Lee has rolled limited participation in practice with the cowboys for Michael Bennett. Randall COBB lioe okay. Oh Collins Zack. Martin Tyrant Smith and Darren Thompson basically the entire offensive line full participation in practice for Amari Cooper he seems to go Byron Jones owns. And that's it so Tony Pollard. Popped up on the injury report with an ankle injury. Who knows what the cowboys would do if he was not able to go? I mean it's not not like they're really utilizing Tony Anyway. I mean I hate to sound that Grumman that pessimistic but I mean this could be a game where they're gonNA have to run the ball given the circumstances of the weather and the conditions and and everything but I mean. It's it's hard to predict as you know late in Vansh was ruled out for this game already already. He has not played since the cowboys were on the road in their win against the Detroit lions so he has missed the last two losses. He said on the ticket on Tuesday that he's focused focused on playing basically for the duration of a career. Not just four years and it does make you wonder about what Jason Garrett said when he first talked about this he said Yeah. I mean it's not career threatening and the fact Anthony brought that up out of nowhere had a lot of people concerned But later advantage will miss his third game in a row which makes me really grateful on one hand for Sean Lee and the fact that the cowboys are able to keep him around. Although Sean Lee had a fantastic performance against the New York giants I'd his nap great ever since and look this this game in Chicago I mean like I said. We'll have another episode tomorrow. We'll kind of get more into that game specifically but this is this is it man and it's a weird thing because you can save this as it because the cowboys are kind of up against this wall. But it's really not. I mean the cowboys could lose this game and a very well might and their playoff odds are essentially the same. It's crazy I mean the. NFC East is so weird this season but the cowboys are very fortunate to be in it being the division and be in the race for it. Uh specifically I mean the Washington redskins three nine three and nine and they're still on the subject of threes by the way I realized that Taco Charleston who has five sacks ex and it has all five since joined the Miami Dolphins. That's by the way demarcus Lawrence has five sacks on the season if you want some salt in your wound but since the cowboys waived Taco nocco Charleston and he was claimed by the Miami Dolphins. Obviously those two teams met in week three so not counting that so basically from week four on the Dallas Cowboys. are three and six. The Miami Dolphins are three and six and all these things all these sad stats always depressing points. I know they're not fun. But but that's where the cowboys are right now at the center of the universe and so when they don't play well their ineptitude is highlighted. And that's just where they're at. They have some ineptitude going on. But you you know hopefully they they can bounce back sooner rather than later. It is Wednesday so hopefully you just got to have the best ones ever. Just just stop talking about it. Just have the APP loot best Wednesday of all time you know why because number one bear showed up on this episode and he. That's what I think. When he was saying he was like have the best ones? They've all time but you know why you really got to have the best ones time as he tried. And you can hear the Jingle Jangle of his color. You've got to have the best Wednesday of all old time. Because you deserve we will see you magnon on my friends as always go cowboys. It yeah the..
"ron rivera" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"Show you know me of course from BTV and from writer humble host on the show it is Wednesday December four th two thousand nineteen very happy Hump Day from all of us at blog on the boys to you. It is the middle of the work week however it is the day before the Dallas cowboys visit. Is it the Chicago bears in their week. Fourteen matchup one that they don't technically need. I know it's crazy. Cowboys could lose their next. Two Games win their final two and still win the NFC east lots to get into on that front a bit of a programming note while we do have this episode available for you on Wednesday if you were wondering what our Thursday stay schedule is going to be. Since the cowboys play on Thursday night football we will have an episode available for you on Thursday morning here on the show and then of course. We'll have our post game episode. That will go out As soon as we can get about after the game and that will serve as our Friday episode south. Just so you're prepared. But I know that I said on in two days episode that I was recording before the Monday night. Football game and that I was kind of planting my flag or moving my flag from Russell Wilson Mountain to Lamar Jackson Man. I'm so confused. The Monday night game was great. Russell Wilson was awesome. The Vikings were great to and honestly you know I kind of liked the uniform combination. That the seahawks hawks war which I'm a bit surprised about personally look whoever wins. MVP between Russell and the Mar- I think is certainly very worthy and deserving. I think I'm leaning in Lamar. I really do think I am I in spite of the great performance by Russell Wilson. But we'll see but because Russell Wilson seahawks wont and because Lamar Jackson's Ravens won beating in the San Francisco Forty niners. That's the key part. The Seattle seahawks currently sit atop the NFC west in the Dallas cowboys as they do lead the NFC FC East the cowboys. The playoffs began today. They do not but if they began today the Dallas cowboys would host the six thousand six Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys would host the ten into San Francisco. Forty niners in the wildcard round. And I think you know to spend a little time on this. It's important because that Monday night game is very very very pivotal for the overall. NFC playoff picture. And that's important because the cowboys are obviously involved. The Seattle seahawks moved to ten and two just like the forty niners whatever they have that tiebreaker because they beat them and the Minnesota Vikings fell to eight and four. Now both the seahawks and niners are ten and two and currently I. I think I think we can all assume that whoever doesn't win the NFC west is going to be the top team if you had any hope of playing the Minnesota Vikings in the wildcard round and obviously obviously. We're talking about the cowboys playing them. I think that hope went out the window on Monday night. Because the Vikings lost to the seahawks that puts them a little bit too far behind the eight ball I think. So it's sort of firmly establishes. The cowboys are going to draw if the cowboys doing the. NFC East the NFC west loser kind of boils down to who you would rather play. Obviously the cowboys hosted the seahawks in the wildcard round. Last year they won that game although a lot of people certainly believe that was because Pete Carroll insisted on running the ball and not giving it to Russell also worse than so personally. I think I would be more afraid of Russell. Wilson's seahawks Jimmy. GAROPPOLO's forty niners. I know that forty nine or defense is tough but I mean you're you're splitting hairs this talking about two of the best teams in the NFL. I think I'd rather as the forty niners and the seahawks but obviously we have a month left to get to before all of that is going to be a factor. We have some NFL news too good to certainly with regards to a different. NFC team in the Carolina. Panthers we'll get to that in a second but before we do. I want to talk about what Jerry Jones had to say. This was all over the world. Everybody talking about this. Jerry said I WANNA five thirty the fan on Tuesday morning. He's on with Sean and RJ. Every week they always do such a great great job getting him to say such juicy little things in look. Let's let's just get into it. Here's what Jerry said okay. Jerry was asked to properly set it up. He was asked. If Jason Garrett has any sort of bar that he has to hit this season with regards to you know a level of success he has to attain. Here's what Jerry Jones said on one of three the fans When I look at coach coaching and stuff is the head coach? I looked at all coach. think about there's no exclusive. Nobody's got exclusive skills skills to get the job done so that collectively you can win super bowl. But they're qualified people Jason Joe it is one of them in my opinion. Aj will be coaching in the NFL. Next you now to be perfectly clear here Jerry said there was not a bar that Jason Garrett had to get over A lot of people have taken it upon themselves to define this at different times. Some people have said it's good to the NFC championship game when the cowboys have been struggling lately. It's it's kind of become more and more clear that the bar if there is one although according to Jerry there's not is to win the Super Bowl and look I get it I mean it's it's a tall task to win the Super Bowl. You know if you're the cowboys but like we mentioned I mean they have to win two games right to get into the tournament. One of them mm-hmm has to be the eagles game now to be clear they can. They can win different games. There could be other combinations of things that happen if the Philadelphia Eagles were to lose. which doesn't seem like it's instead of the question at this point in time but Jerry is going to say this kind of stuff and this is the reality of the cowboys have to deal with for now but the coaching in is is questionable? I think it's fair to wonder why you know it's been over here to wake. I should say because when Games are on Thursdays as the all twenty two films available later than it usually is and so. It's a lot longer until film reviews. Get up and things like that and if you consume a lot of cowboys content than I know you so you've been affected by this but I thought Bob Sturm from the ticket from the athletic who does a great job in his decoding. More susie does every week. Hit a great line about the cowboys. Special Teams Unit. I mean this speaks of the whole team but I think it's certainly speaks to the special teams and this again go really. It's in the athletic if you don't have an athletic subscription certainly atlan courage that they are starting their average drive inside their twenty three yard line since week nine which as you know is even worse than a touchback after kickoff think about that the cowboys average starting field position is worse than if they were to just take knees out of the end zone every single time now. Some of that isn't isn't kickoff. Some of that is puns and some of that is turnovers if they happen. I tweeted the interception leaders for the cowboys and season it's grim executor. Woods has two interceptions and enjoying Lewis. Each have won. The cowboys have four interceptions in total. So far this season as a group there are a lot of players players. In fact there are three players that have more than them individually Minkah Fitzpatrick. Marcus Peters and Devin mccourty each have five. You'll note that two of those Minkah Fitzpatrick and Marcus. Peters both traded. You did this season. So that's a little depressing but yeah man. I mean this. This coaching situation is not going away. And I tell you what you know. This is Wednesday Wednesday that you and I are talking if the cowboys win tomorrow. I don't think anybody's really gonNA care. I don't think any is going to be bad because guess what that's another low level team that you'd be. Maybe if the cowboys go out they beat the rams next week. Okay maybe some people start to pay a little bit more attention because you you beat a high quality team and we'll see. What the reins do this week as? Well but I mean this is these are rough the times for Jason Garrett and it certainly did not help You Know Jerry. I mean it sounds weird to say but Jerry is not helping the situation at this point by talking about it. And what else can he say. I know that it's going to be your response. But every time Jerry voices support support for Jason Garrett people just roasted and that's the reality of the situation. They're in a lose lose situation where everyone's going to be mad if they do you mad if they don't they're going to say they're going to say that it's going to be relentless people are going to be after Jason Garrett in the cowboys because they feel like they've seen enough I mean they feel like the New England patriots game was just about the last straw and if you already felt that way than the buffalo bills lost certainly put you over the edge which is where the cowboys find themselves. But such is life when you're six and six thankfully solely for the cowboys they're six and six but they lead the NFC east. Because it is so bad I mean my goodness it is bad I don't even know if if we can can. We assume that the eagles are GonNa win this week. Because I don't know that we can assume that they're they're bad in their own special kind of bad So I mentioned that we gotta get to Ron Rivera big news around the NFL certainly in terms of another coach domino sort of fell another option soon. There's my puppy bear. He's barking so he wants to be part of this conversation. let's go ahead and take care of their shoutout to him. Make an appearance here. Don't go anywhere before we get to Ron Rivera and all that stuff. We're GONNA take a very quick break to hear a word from sponsors. This episode is brought to you by. CBS Sports HQ so much sports TV nowadays is full of made up trauma. It's a bunch of hot takes from people who don't believe what they're saying just beating the same topics into the ground but CBS sports. HQ's change all that..

"Spoke cannot get to nine o'clock quick enough on Sundays. Nickel for every time. Great here right. And then it's Dan singing it and then Greg and then someone else turning around and then it's actually on the television vision for you know who who's happy about the champ you to Jada casts back data kiss. was that his hats. And those checks tim and Eminem an good for him and his money. Zim Wrap thank all right so yes Rhonda Veras can but Jason might not be far behind Jerry. Jones is doing doing the media tour Ever since the Thanksgiving loss to the bills put Dallas's season upside down and jared did a Uh of course he was in front of the locker room and tears talking about how this team had get Disney ending in store and and don't give up on a stat yet And now he's on the radio One five three the fan. And he's talking about Jason Garrett and being a head coach not necessarily without being a head coach in two thousand twenty. Nobody's got the exclusive skills to get the job done so that collectively you can win super bowl. But they're qualified the FAD people Jason Joy is one of them in my opinion would be coaching in the NFL. Next well mark you just got mad. What about champion? You gotta be mad about that. Come on well I mean the one thing I said over and over is that I'd I would not be surprised. If joining Ron Rivera soon would be Jason Garrett because the tidbit that interests me is Lincoln Riley the Oklahoma coach Ian rapoport saying that he's formed in quotes a close relationship with Jerry Jerry Jones and I think that there is going to be competition as I thought I would have been last year for Lincoln. Riley who has shown an ability to work with young college system quarterbacks quarterbacks and so do you want to be the you know overly procedural cowboys the wait until after week seventeen and yet you're the cowboys. Do you have an advantage. No matter what order you get on that bus sooner or later if you know you're already talking about Jason Garrett this way if your boss was talking about you this way to people publicly I'd be concerned I'd it'd be looking for. Ib looking around Jason Garrett you can see it on his face to some degree I feel like engaged Someone Ping me saying how can you possibly know what Jason Garrett is thinking by what he says on his face because we mentioned that during the Thanksgiving telecast or broadcast whatever it was that didn't get broadcasted tanned. They're like he's the same face all the time I know he is but it just seems seems to have that look in his eyes where you can see it coming. He's out and I think that if you really want Lincoln Riley and you want to move that train that Jerry Jones is already thinking that way that somebody had their eared or the garage door at my house or one of the one of the ten or twelve people that it's somehow escaped. Eric not blaming Erica. Nor would I ever for this. That would set a new precedent. You're suggesting that a first place team earmarked for the playoffs with fire. It's coach I mean that calling them. A first place team is like not when we well. We got a new book. The Brock osweiler leading the Texans to the playoffs thing. They are about as first place team right now as have been through a lot today. You don't have to bring up the brock osweiler. That's why I'm not against cowboys. Are Six and six in first place last season it would. It would be weird because yeah they're trying all they gotta do is get to the dance and they'll have a home game and you know what's going to happen. I mean in theory. He could decide he'd rather have crisper. Chard being the head coach but why. It doesn't avenue surveyed long ago. I still don't think he. He basically said he'll do it through the end of the season. It's just hilarious. I mean it's the most Jerry Jones quote ever. I wish every owner was was like this. If you really think about it I mean. He was willing to talk about stabilize like halfway through what he's saying. And he's like how do I save this defending hadn't even Garrett but he's I think he'll be a coach in the. NFL might be a position coach. The rest of the nation made sense. I thought he was he was he was congrats. It'll be a coach in the NFL. Sports are so stupid and and the most beautiful way that you're right mark. The cowboys shouldn't be taken seriously. They're six and six and they're not true playoff team. You know watch him beat the niners in wild card weekend at home. I mean it's like should not surprise anyone. I mean just like this ebbs saying the idea things change so quickly the NFL. So I would think firing Garrett or is that what you're saying maybe should be let go now. I'm saying I could see how about this. What if you wanted to get a under pressure look in what this is not a super bowl team and Jerry Jones? I know he's delusional at times has to see that. What if you wanted to give Chris Rashard who I think is a head coach himself and waiting a test run during a high pressure month and this is what happens because maybe the big the big thing that keeps coming up with Jason Garretta's cannot connect with players? Here's will maybe Chris Rashard cannon. Turn this locker room. It is something else and you go void. These postgame shouting matches in the locker room. They are not on the same age as a team. If you wear IRV small sample sizes to like Freddie Kitchens using him as an example I totally marrone guy. His job from two games with Blake Bortles one of which they lost. That's fine you know what you have if you have a large sample size on Jason Garrett. What's that got you? It's going to be more of the same month from it. I would respect. That would take some stones to turn it over to Chris Rashard and maybe it would produce some some results that you weren't getting from Jason so we're GonNa Fire Garrett now I'm saying it's in the air it's it's gotTa be Jones his out. That would be studying. What did they got waxed? Thirty to seven on on on Thursday night football against the bears. And you and I have to wait fifteen twenty minutes thirty minutes to wrap up because this news is breaking. I could see that being terrible. They don't even speak into being real of the world. You know you just want to wait for the press conferences. I get some sound you know you want to the cover. That's a big story tomorrow. We'll we'll we'll call you to in for because I would definitely need all four of us. So let's move on The Jacksonville Jaguars are in tatters. Right now speaking of Doug Marrone following a twenty eight eleven loss to the bucks in which Nick foles turned it over and each of his first three possessions. All three of those positions leading two touchdowns for the enemy marrone went back to garment you at the half and he announced. That's what we all expected. That meant. She will stay in the lineup Both this Sunday against the chargers chargers and for the balance of the regular regular season. So Menchu back in and the minute. You maniacs Get their guy. And that's good. I would say to me. Mark the biggest storyline. Now out of this is what the hell they're going to do. Nick foles this guy they just signed to. What an eighty eight million dollar contract with a ton of money guaranteed? What is the next step in this marriage? Now it's a wait and see if the next coach that goes to Carolina has a lot to think about and a lot to ponder along with the rest of the team for Cam. Newton Sodas the next coach in Jacksonville. There's going to be a new coach there. Barring something shocking. That would be stunning stunning. And they've got to figure out what to do with the situation and I will point out that the minute minute Gardner. Men's shoe came in. The browns dropped ten. Nothing Baker Mayfield was on fire. And what happened to the browns. The Minute Gardner. When the minute mentioned how it I'm telling you what what this what you're you're there either my doppler theory that they are there too much alike and there's too much of the same thing in the Gardner Mints? You pulled energy government. She went out of the lineup. The browns won three in a row. He came back in with them up. Ten nothing in Pittsburgh steelers Baker Mayfield is a terrible fumbled. The browns melt away gardeners back starting again troubling troubling. So what do you want to happen then. I am very conflicted. Because I like Gardner minhsiu too and I. I don't know what to do. He would have to I all in all of it ends after this season. And all the whatever's happening quickly ends after this season against Carolina. Yeah I think the next coach possibly the next. GM are going to decide what they do. Do At quarterback in falls is almost impossible to cut you end up paying more money on the cap to cut him. Then you would just just to keep him but he could be very tradable if you're willing to eat some of his salary cap and that becomes a little a little more palatable that if they really WanNa get rid of him I think someone would trade for especially the Jaguars eat some money but again. I don't think it didn't work for the. I mean talk about small sample size. It didn't work for for the three games. Three and a half games. He played coming off a serious injury. Obviously but they're in better shape at quarterback than they have been you know for the rest of This decade with falls in Minzhu. So I I don't think it's like some you know emergency. Their team is an emergency. I was surprised I looked at your power rankings. Dan Dan I mean to me. They'd be number thirty two. I think they are the worst team in the NFL right now. I mean in terms of how they playing. They have not been within three scores of an opposing team in in five straight game. Four Straight Games. That's outrageous I blew it or not you blow it is just say there's a case The late twenties. I just a bad. He's just a bad combination with that offensive line. which was getting its doors? Blow off by bucket. Nears Pass rushers in that game and even mentioned when he came in had to make incredibly quick jump cuts to get out of the way just to get passes off and I think the the three games we saw with Foale's it looked like a much less effective version. Asian of the FLACCO broncos offense where you had this as mark would say stone pony behind an alternate pony stone-age Pony who cannot block and foles just moved to slow. I'm Chad Khan was kind of the David Tepper of the League when he came in and he's done some interesting things and clothing making them. You know the team in London. I am really fascinated to see what they do with their off-season in there about his analytic minded as any team in the NFL Finally News Kai forbath boy. He's been convicted from the kicker club. That was quick A day after appearing in his first game with the Patriots a game in which he missed an extra point but but he absolutely hammered a twenty three yard field goal through the UPRIGHTS and also hit an extra point The pats decide to go on a different directions action so for Beth was waived and Nick Volks. Who's been on the mend following that appendectomy which led to the four about signing is folk back in now in order to they? Are they looking for another kicker. And what are we up to five. I think this how you went super bowl. If folk is healthy. Yeah and the plan is he's he's back. So yeah he's Stephen cousy. They started with then they went to the new dodge then. They went to folk hero and they brought him off golf course then they got sky and now backed act folk..

"Modern and innovative prostheses. We will consider a wide range of football executives that complement our current football staff. One change that we will implement. Is Hiring an assistant general manager vice president of football operations. Did you mention this yet. Cut The miss of do you believe he. Ah Do you believe that these. CEO's ever write that. Yeah well I blow it. How they say dictates verbal notes and someone else racing in a giant Microsoft word? So you know going through paragraphs and cutting there's a lot of buzz. He's analytic minded that he wants something. That's cutting edge and even even mentioned it like a mix of old old school versus new. We'll see what that means. I do think that people are ready to say goodbye to Cam. Newton there and that Cam Newton could be extremely attractive to some coaching candidates. That make the case of why they have a plan to keep Cam Newton. Well if you're other only other option is Alan and will greer who can't overtake Kyle. Allen then I think I would be shocked at this point of Cam. Newton is not. Is this a good job yes I mean any. NFL head coach. You Click David Tepper and you find out that two years in you. Still Click with David tepper. I think it is but the roster you got some players Kahlon Short you got Luc Luke Equally Shaq Thompson Receiver. Group is good. You Got Christian. McCaffrey should've mentioned right at the top. I think so and I think you have an owner. That's that's GONNA spend and we should mention NORV NORV. Turner is no longer there offense later. He is the assistant to the new interim coach. Perry fuel and Scott Turner. North Sun is taking over play-calling recalling which is which is strange in it reminds me Rivera's challenge in this hiring psycho because I'm sure he'll get interviews. He's a good coach and has a great record but he's not an offensive coach. So what's his plan for offense. Who is he bringing with him wherever he would go? That's GonNa be the first question anyone asks them. They're moving into a brand new facility next next year Just across the border in South Carolina. I think rock hill. They have an owner who seems from afar. Who really wants to win? He's competitive but let's his football. People make their football decisions and I did like what he said about the mix of sort of the innovative new school approach with the old school discipline. I mean I think most owners owners are probably going for that but I think it's a good job Kevin Colbert by the way the steelers. General Manager is unsigned going into next year. When out of his way to not re sign with the steelers and tapper was the minority with the steelers dot connector a long time so that was good? That was I mean. So was Jimmy House Lem so and they have that little pink pony operation of their own going on and I do Ron Rivera on the giant sideline that makes a lot of sense to me. However her as we talked about downstairs Dave gettleman and Ron Rivera not bedfellows at this point so maybe the GM would have to be swept at it and we know that for sure? What a strange term I would imagine? GETTLEMAN is out but I mean like we. It's so funny how. We assume that we know these people don't like each other like each other. We don't know if I was going off with Gregg I said I know there's been some there's been some other Thoughts that could make sense. Who knows a reunion reunion? Oh that had her child reunion breath.
