The Browns are trying a new approach heading into the 2020 season: Being quiet

"Let's start here in Cleveland atom I heard Baker Mayfield say last week last year was total and complete chaos. They had so much noise around the organization. Now it's like a church mouse. It's totally quiet. WHAT'S THE MANTRA? What's going on there with this approach? Well the circus that was in Cleveland left and has gone to Tampa Bay in the interim. Basically, you've got a new general manager Andrew Berry new head coach, and Kevin Stefanski and the noise that accompanied this team last year has quite a quite a bit I think people are more interested in seeing Ben Rothlisberger return in Pittsburgh. The return of the NFL's raining MVP Lamar Jackson in Baltimore even the number one overall pick Joe borrowing, Cincinnati that browns are. The least sexy story in the AFC north this season and so they're flying under the radar, which is a good thing for this team. They don't need anymore engine. Let them win before we anoint the Cleveland Browns and contender and I think that they're very encouraged by what they've seen so far from their team this summer

Are Freddie Kitchens and Baker Mayfield Holding Back the Cleveland Browns?

"GonNa go right to the fourth quarter quarter with the browns so they're down for points and Baker Mayfield and the browns run a draw play on fourth and nine and not surprisingly they came up short short then late in the fourth Cleveland at another opportunity with the first and goal from the four yard line the browns called four straight past plays with the last one resulting in an interception from Baker. That is the game for the rams after the game coach Freddie Kitchen said he regretted the play calling late in the game but Baker said it was more than that take a listen. If you're looking blame somebody blame me. Don't blame me of our players. Don't blame any of our other coaches. Just blame me because I can take it all right. So you know just blindly go go rach article and say I must have game up. Go article and say smile faulted. Things not looking like it did last year because it is. I know what you guys are. GonNa try and do is talk about the playcalling they call him but I said executions the most important thing you know whatever whenever we have called we gotta do our job all right Shannon how much blame that does Freddie Kitchens deserve here. There's a lot of the blame because give the office coordinated the coach and he's the play caller. I Guess Bakersfield Dangerous yesterday. Did you wake feeling dangerous. Gear Alexa dangerous lately. He needs to feel the need to wake up feeling danger. Tennessee woke up feeling real dangerous and that they did. Did you know what skipped look. Freddie is learning that that's to wear two hats in the NFL gets a really hard job. That's why a lot of a lot of guys. Just give that up they either just keep the headset on so they can hear everything or they call you like Andy. Reid is very unique cow Shanahan and guys like that a very unique skipped dream to be able to call the plays and be a head cold but Freddie the the thing that's hurting frady is expectations afraid of the head coach last year if they didn't have these expectations but because of the way they played the close out the season yeah and now they add dale they will add alleviate Vernon they they get they get agreement. We've the draft you like who the brow and you see the subtractions in Pittsburgh. Maybe is no longer there. ABC's no longer there yeah yeah and then what week two bengals out so now that really ratcheted up taste so now everybody expecting the browns to be really really good look doc. That's why I say each year in of itself because last year has no bearing on this year and I think the browns players and and fans are starting to realize that Freddie is starting to realize the expectation that comes along with expectations. I'm the head coach because he didn't have a whole lot of experience calling rolling blades. He's never been a head coach so now he's the head coach which means he's the CEO of the operation but by the same token. He's got a call all the plays now. I don't know what the hell call now. If I didn't no but elsewhere Freddie Buffalo Wild Wings Buffalo Wild Wings coat the fourth and now you can't what the hell is that draw draw play on Yahoo. They were GONNA try to fool Agassi's pass. It got eight yards do remedy it was he ended up seven yards short. I was wondering if I was missing something watching. I'm like wait. Am I getting the goal. You got shows. You got nick. You don't give you one. Kerry now was a live. Let's put back and let's run. It is so you go so you got nick who you save or. I'M GONNA keep everybody happy. I'M GONNA get down. Here's Kevin Jarvis if Catcher Chila. It'll be thirty okay. You give make sure one crack please. okay okay scared. We're told you you keep trying to keep everybody happy to win. Games in everybody's going to be saying 'cause everybody because everybody's GonNa be safe because they nobody's gonna be getting their catches and you'll be losing games and you're going to be in a lose lose situation wages and you're going to be a part of their now that Jimmy and de Havilland. They look like hold on Okay John Dorsey now. We gave you everything everything that you want it. You got a quarterback overall. You got all these weapons. Jarvis Landry got a you got Joel hurt him but here's the things when you you made that trade y'all trash because you got the ninety nine deflategate boy human too. We're talking about the guy who had zero Saxon three the playoff games and it has zero sacks against the cowboys and the Guy who took the Cleveland browns cannot protect Baker Mayfield. They haven't for free games and the Rams took full advantage of that last night. What did I say Friday. Baker Mayfield is about to be in the wrong place at the wrong time against Wade Phillips defense offense that Cap Tom Brady and check for almost the entire super bowl. Am I right about you. Skip in another thing before I let you go. They traded their bust of Islam lobby. Get Out I'll be at the end of the day. You can have all the shiny pieces. You won't skill all these cashier that look nice. You better have a guard or to guard the money now. The money right now is six Baker Mayfield. You got a bunch of predate cashiers. You Got Jarvis and he got dale. You've got all that stuff. I did pillows but nobody protecting the money in his sketches for fifty six yards really the impact the game. Do you remember any of Nope. NOPE nope nope no so given that that was Wade Phillips Defense and right now. I think that defense is even a little better than then. Bill checks defense. That's how good it is because it has more star power to it because to leave did a number on Odell last night. I don't care what you say. You know. They'll get loose down on the field one time he had a nineteen yard catch. It didn't do much okay now back to Freddie Kitchens. I'm not sure he's going to last a whole year. I'm just not sure because bag years kept finding coach in the middle of the how I think it's it's just getting a little darker and darker in Cleveland because remember they have to go go to Baltimore next Sunday Baltimore better than everybody thought in there I think five point underdog there are five and a half actually five and a half point underdog so that the game you better believe believe it or the forty niners three and Oh yes they beffa movie bouquet. The next game is a Monday night game in Santa Clara against against the forty nine. It's Elizabeth game and then the seahawks visit. Seok student looked great yesterday but they did go to Pittsburgh while Rothlisberger played the first half right. They're capable of beating the browns right now because the browns aren't very good right now what if they lose those games and fall to one in six what's Jimmy Haslem going to do with the expectations -tations through the roof of them. He already got one coach. That's still on the pay. Roll can still play a huge. I I know you have another guy on the payroll. Just bring somebody else hears Freddie's problem after the game. He's adopted this new. Oh poor pitiful pitiful me philosophy where he just says you. I'll take it all you know. Get the lay it on me. Don't blame the players blame. Oh Freddie doesn't really look like a football coach. Does he looks more like an offensive line coach so he he doesn't look like the head coach doesn't look like he's in charge and after the Games he's kind of admitting yes screwed that one up and I screwed that go ahead just say well. If you invite the media to run through that door trust me they're going to run through it and trample on you because he is now the easiest target in the national football league. You WANNA blame Baker. Can you not really do you want to blame Odell. No not really how Jarvis no hell out him yes. Yes you know who I want to be right now. I build Danny Jones. That'd be real petty. Okay believe anything you say I'm just saying I can't believe that guy number one he could do that. I don't think he's built. He's built wake ain't skill but you know what I think. Cleveland's defense is really good remember that they had four subs playing in the defensive backfield last night. All four starters were out in hung in and did that I mean I guess why they did it to me. Jared Goff's overrated scale. He's overweight did everything he could. CLEVELAND WON'T DARWIN THIS GAME. How many times do you go on the road and turn it over three times and win the football game you tell me it was three to one and turnovers with l. A. Three to Braley won the Dow many times. Do you get away with them. That's the recipe you want. The best recipe the loser role game yeah. Turn it over thank you. They did that and they still won. One hundred ten million guaranteed right Jared Goff my money yup lots of money so back to quarterback. I love Baker Mayfield old. I'm sorry I got to tell the truth is having a hard time. He's starting to lose a little bit of nerve because he Bolton Fast Komo News. I gotta get out of here. I gotTA get out here. He needed to stand in especially on the goal line and just make one of those rows without looking over his shoulder. It's the Ford downplay. He bolts pockets so fast. I know the play hard off the right. I think yeah I think that's probably a dollar and that was that was ended up being a clay that end up being getting away with the thing is is that sometimes these quarterbacks they look in the bubble instead of stepping up. They look into get outside up that skill once you get outside. Guess what you're doing you telling the defense. Basically I got from the Hash to the side attitude rolling to the every once in a while. We'll talk about Lamar Jackson. You'll get away with a bail out with Obama did you. Did you know you don't make that. You'll go broke doing that. I would agree but Baker. Hey sometimes you gotta you gotTa Take

"rothlisberger" Discussed on NFL Live

"That means all, but one, only your Los Angeles chargers have the day off for a team charity event. We however start in Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger. Says he regrets how he reacted to a week, twelve loss to the Denver Broncos last season rocklets burger who haven't throw a late game interception in the end zone. Went on the radio show in late November and was critical of the route running by Antonio Brown. Looking at it on film, I can't tell you wanna call it or not obviously, but you know, he did undercut av. So who knows what would happen? And that's where I was. I talked AB AB. You have to come flat. You can't drift in the end zone because those undercuts can happen. Aby went on HBO the shop and said this about rothlisburger, oh years. The dude called me out. We lose a game. He's like, yeah. AD should have run a better routes. That's the type of guy he is he's still like he's the owner, bro. You through that expletive to the D line. How the am I gonna get it? You need to give me a better ball. And now rothlisburger with some time to think about it some hindsight. I took some heat and deservedly so for some of the comments on that show and especially towards him. He's talking about end, Tonio Brown. I genuinely feel bad about that. And I'm sorry, did I go too far after that Denver game probably? Antonio Brown had two words for the former quarterback, and this is in his response to rock lers burgers, mea culpa of source simply said that to face. Well, Jeremy Fowler, has been along for the whole wild ride joins us now from Pittsburgh, and we pick up Jeremy right where we left off. Well, Wendy, the wheel keep spitting here in Pittsburgh. The drama never ends, and Ben Rothlisberger took accountability. With these four words Tuesday, I lacked in leadership, rather burgers, said, when you miss the playoffs and don't win the division, I guess that falls on me. So he plans to refocus his efforts on getting his team ready for two thousand nineteen and bringing out the best out of the young players, getting to know them on and off the field now. That's the future but regarding the past route, this burger was very introspective. When I asked him, how he was left a process that messy divorce within Tonio Brown. Check this out. It was hard to process because I never knew anything the last time we spoke on Thursday before the last game. We hugged we, we had a great talk. Everything was good. And so I knew nothing. So it was hard for me to know anything. And then I heard from third party that their issues. So I reached out to him many times Semtex calls his oh for the season was over and never heard back. So I could never really find out what was going on. So for me, that's why it was so confusing. I, I didn't know where it came from. I mean the week before was the saints game. Right. I mean he unbelievable game. So I never really saw any coming. I would have loved to have had the chance to talk to him. And that's why I said yesterday, whatever I whatever I did to offend my job for it. I tried to do that in person and talk to him. But he just wouldn't allow to. I also as Big Ben about Brown's characterization that route, the speaker has an owner mentality that he's bigger than the team then said I don't know what he meant by that. So I really have no reaction. But once Brown was traded he decided it's not his style to bring up the past season. A focus on his guys in the locker room now and Rothlisberger pointed to his new contract. He said, I have three years left. I plan to honor the entirety of it. So as big picture goal is to make sure his guys stick together. We've been hitting it from all angles this off season. He said. Jeremy. Thank you. And again, I'm not kidding. I mean, literally, we pick up where we left off with only last time this time last year, we were talking about Levy on bell, and then it became Antonio Brown. Look, you know, he probably had no choice in Bahia mean Ben Rothlisberger..

"Prompting Ben Rothlisberger to say we wanna show we are here dedicated to this team dedicate to having a great season. We are all about each other. Brian does this feel like a fresh start for Ben Rothlisberger? The Steelers up the believe that he certainly feels that way. I think that what you went through some of the things that they went through last season with Antonio Brown. And of course, living Bill being there. This has to feel like I start. This is another opportunity for him. And nothing this is why he was at phase one of the season program another opportunity to show that he can be a leader. If he wants to lead this football team. You guys understand you have to have buy from every single level. And now with Ben making these compass these. Purposeful comments, be dedicated. We're all in this together. We're team he's talking to the media. But he's really talking to his teammates to make his statement to say all those things that happened last year. They're not going to happen. Again this year not on my watch. He wants to reestablish himself. As leader, I think, it's a fresh start for Ben also think is a fresh start from Mike Tomlin. And I believe that. If if I'm Mike Tomlin, I'm having a conversation way before the first minicamp, I'm saying, listen, we have to reestablish ourselves. Coach as well leader as well as quarterback as a leader football team. That's what started yesterday. But when it comes to Ben Rothlisberger. Isn't this the kind of thing where you need to see it before you hear it? And haven't we heard the words before this is seeing it? This is him being there on him. Now, it should be noted that maybe just as a side story here is also hoping for and awaiting a new contract and there's a couple of weeks ago getting a new contract in the NFL one is don't show up to anything. But quarterbacks never do that. The other is to show up to. And to be all in team guy in. So I'm sure that has something to do with it. But the other part that has to do with this is I've never doubted that been rob Berger wants to win that he wants the Steelers to be successful. Now, he might want it to happen on his own terms to a degree. He might want it to happen where he's allowed a level of dispensation other players aren't. But he now knows this team is been Roethlisberger and fifty two kids. Kevin Gobert said, even if they're not actually kids that the if the Steelers are not successful this year to people are going to get the blame. Ben and Tom. Yeah, that's it. And so they are going to have to after a few years of my mind see of underachieving to their level of talent. They're going to have to over achieve given their level of talent due to the connective tissue of the team due to these comments actually being real that. It is one unit of a massive people moving as one. And so this is the this is the start of what you're saying talking about seeing it saying. Than seeing it than doing. Well, first things first they are doing the right thing is far as how verbalizing everything because moving forward. They have to have one common theme with Mike Tomlin with rothlisburger and the other leaders the offense of line who've you seen them signed to contract extension. They have said the right thing. But from my perspective, you don't get a fresh start in NFL unless you change locations. All right. One of the reasons why I've left Philadelphia people might think it was something else. What? Because Buddy Ryan he was never going to trust me, regardless of what I did. He was never going to trust me. And what I've seen an NFL locker rooms we saw this last year with the Cleveland Browns. Josh, Gordon, he came back. They said it was a fresh start..

"Now, I can't comment on whether or not been Rothlisberger is a racist. I don't know. I haven't met the man I've been in the locker room with the man. I also don't know Rashard mendenhall and I can't trust simply his accusation. I know for one thing it's an accusation. That's thrown around readily today. It's an accusation used to. Be the sort of winning argument in the debate Rothlisberger. May maybe he may not be. But I do know this. The Steelers are an absolute. Sixty four car pileup. They are a nightmare. And it's absolutely shocking. How many individuals have contributed to this drama how many current and former players in Pittsburgh are willing to go into the public sphere? And throw each other under the bus in leaves you coming away with a couple of conclusions about three different guys at a minimum three different guys involved in this drama. Let's start with Ben Rothlisberger. Let's start with the Super Bowl winning hall of fame quarterback. To assume at this point of Ben Rothlisberger is somehow blameless in the overall drama in Pittsburgh, set aside, the racist accusations. I can't. Address that but I can't address the overall dysfunction locker room drama player. Players going at each other. I can't address that in a Ben Rothlisberger is clearly a part of all of that. He is clearly as a supposed leader on that football team. Someone who hasn't brought that team together who at least some players that locker room. Don't see as a leader. They wanna follow Ben Rothlisberger is clearly somebody who shoulder some of the blame of the dysfunction and drama in Pittsburgh. You know who else is number two. Mike tomlin. Mike Tomlin is an extremely likable coach it seems like many players who played for him want to he's a player's coach..

NBA executive says LeBron James ‘killed’ Lakers’ chemistry with Anthony Davis drama

"Let's see there's a whole myth debunk about these Lakers, and how LeBron James has ruined them. So to speak. But also about why this team. Is right now, I think it's three games back of that number eight spot in the west. So remember LeBron recently activated his playoff mode. We talked about it last week. And he had to do that early because they didn't get any Anthony Davis. And they've not only got three games between them. And the number eight spot in the west, but they also have two other teams ahead of them in the Sacramento Kings and the Minnesota Timberwolves right now, the Spurs. Oh my gosh. The Spurs who just went one in seven on their rodeo road trip that usually at time when Gregg Popovich. Sees his guys come together they bind it's their longest road trip of the year. It's really taxing. But in years past when they've had the leadership. The guys who've been around coach Popovich for long periods of time for for many years. And you know, what I'm talking about going back to? Tim Duncan and mono and Tony Parker. And it's it's an it's a changing of the guard within Antonio this season. But this road trip was a disaster. They lost about the Knicks and the nets on the last two nights, which is crazy to give a hundred and thirty points to the New York Knicks on Sunday and on Monday, only managed eighty-five points in Brooklyn, and that was capping their rodeo road trip. So anyway there right now faded into the number eight spot in the Western Conference, but they're still three games up on the Lakers and the Timberwolves and then the kings are sandwiched in between and the Lakers are below five hundred. So it's going through this story written by Eric Pinkus? You get all the way through the tale about why they're struggling and where LeBron James is pointing fingers, and maybe this is a case. Similar to Ben Rothlisberger in Pittsburgh where he's okay calling out his teammates. Because even though it's his first year in LA all the experience that he has the eighth consecutive NBA finals the night overall the three rings, you get it. And so maybe he feels like it's his responsibility to teach them how to win and how to approach this stretch run. And to keep the focus on the details. The day to day grinding it out. But at the very bottom of this column by Eric Pinkus. He quotes an NBA executive. You have to get all the way through, but it was worth reading to get to this point. And he talks about that whole disaster of a week when the Lakers were pursuing Anthony Davis willing to offer five of their own roster guys as well as multiple draft picks. And how the NBA itself? Now, we talked about this the time, but how the NBA itself. Was put off by the connection between LeBron Davis by virtue of Davis's agent, and LeBron's business partner rich business partner, Rich Paul of clutch sports. And so the NBA didn't like it. The pelicans really didn't like it. And we're we're totally toying with the Lakers. But LeBron went all in. He was sure this deal was going to get done. And so Pinkus quotes one NBA executive who said to him he killed the Lakers chemistry. He shouldn't have been so public about it even during the all-star draft. He laughed about wanting Davis to be his team mate. He killed the Lakers chemistry, and we talked about it on the show before the all-star break and coming out. They looked a little better. They looked like they were a little more fluid. And of course, our Lakers insider, it said to us they had the time away. This is when I was in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. Brad turner. He's our Lakers insider with the L A times said to us. Well, they had some time away with their family and friends they came back with the perspective that. If the Lakers don't want us. Don't want me. There are twenty nine other teams who do. But I encourage you to read this column by Eric Pinkus. Because as I talked about before the break.

I mean, John Rondo is there as well. Javale McGee, but these are not players that were being dangled to the pelicans because they're not players the pelicans want. I mean Rondo was there last season. And so it's not fixable. Just by snapping your fingers. It doesn't work that way. Like, I talked about human beings when we think a break up is coming or an end is coming we brace for it. We start to prepare for it. It's impossible to go all in on a

Ben Roethlisberger is 'clearly a part of the problem'

"Next. Next team president art Rooney. The second said Wednesday that talks have started between the Steelers and Ben Rothlisberger on a contract extension. Big Ben who turns thirty seven in March has one year remaining on his current deal. And let's keep in mind. There's been a lot of drama and Pittsburgh fellas and Tonio Brown apparently wants out lay beyond bells that out the entire season. Not to mention that Big Ben has been going back and forth on retirement these past couple of seasons. Tedy Bruschi still here with us joining us from the Pro Bowl and Orlando I teddy. There you are. We got you got you and all your friends in the background is big and more of a problem or a solution because this franchise feels like a mess right now. Because both he's he's definitely a part of the problem because they no other men in which he's handled things. I mean, again, you know, you you've got numerous players. You've got numerous NFL aficionados that have religiously called out Big Ben for saying things in throwing people under the bubble in the fashion of the quarterbacks. Don't this is not me talking. This is basically reporting what they've said as max is done as many others. If you watch Big Ben you talking about juju Smith Schuster. We should have thrown the ball of him every time you say something like that. You've got to know you've been around Antonio Brown long enough to know, how those kind of things would affect him along with various other things in other positions that he has taken that. We don't have time to get into in the end when it comes down to is that has made him a part of the problem because Big Ben is live by different set of rules. He's a bit flagrant with it. And I don't give a. AM who you are anytime you receive preferential treatment that you are you are playing by different set of rules as everybody else you are going to rub people the wrong way, especially when you consider the individual who abuses, the privilege. That's the bottom line. Having said all of that. When you look at Big, Ben he's also a part of the solution because nobody's perfect everybody makes mistakes. And if you're willing to man up in knowledge that you could have done better in certain respects. I think that would go a long way, I think the thing that the Tonio Browns of the world and others that are incredibly frustrating is not that big been mixed the mistakes, they made is that he doesn't necessarily he isn't necessarily deemed as an individual that learns from apologized showed the pope level of contrition and move forward without making sure not to repeat those mistakes again throughout the years. You've seen a pattern of behavior that has been consistent with him in that he has gotten away with it. If you listened to those NFL players Antonio Brown is one of those NFL player. Here's somebody that has said that. And as a result, you a big band you want to alleviate this situation you speak up. You recognize us where you're at fault. And I think if he did that that would go along way. So he's both a problem and a problem solver in all of this because he's right in the middle of everything as the stock quarterback of the team who obviously has is outspoken, Saddam. Well, we agree and disagree because I think he is part of the problem the solution. But for very different reasons part of the problem because Ben Rothlisberger is like a rich man's Eli manning. He is too good for your team. Just to stink almost no matter. What's going on? Right. You're good. A win some games. Maybe make the usually make the playoffs. So how do you get his successor? There's no succession, I just talked about how you know, unless you're Bill Belichick level. And it's not so easy to find a quarterback when you're not drafting up high. You know, it's more of a crap shoot. They don't have the person there that they feel can take the reins of the team if they're truly grooming. It doesn't seem to me on the other end. Therefore at the moment. He reads a lot of power because when you don't have that. But you do have a talented team. And you have a quarterback who's shown he can still play at a very high level, and we're in an era. That's right teddy in an era where older quarterbacks are clearly protected in ways. They've never been you look the level. Tom Brady is still playing at forty one. Drew Brees at forty then rothlisburger at thirty seven that that they realize, oh, wait a minute as beat up as he's been as much as he talked about retirement. He's still maybe has some years of football left in him. We don't have as backup. So he wields probably too much influence and he seems to at times publicly throw players under teammates under the bus. He's a problem because he's too good to get that next quarterback with the draft pick. He's your solution to the extent that you're good because he's a really good quarterback. And if you ain't got that, you ain't got anything. I'm with both you here because Big Ben has been a problem, and he can be a part of the solution. But this is what's happening here as you're talking about max. The quarterbacks in this league getting older and older and still being able to play past forty. What's happening is a generational gap. A generational gap between the quarterback and all of the younger skilled players and all of the younger players on defense that are ended up being a part of this team and the ability to relate. So they're almost these kids are coming in plan. I mean rothlisburger will have players coming in make sure that have had his poster on the wall or something like that that group as fans, and so how does that quarterback that aging quarterback you mentioned breeze Brady and rothlisburger? How was he able to relate to them and make them feel like still an equal? And as one of his teammates, this is where Ben Rothlisberger has failed has he failed. Also and other aspects where Stephen as talking about what he's calling out teammates where he's got no business when he should have when he's the one making bad plays. Also. Yes, I agree with that. But he needs to learn to start to relate to these younger generation of players because he will continue to get older, and that gap is. Real and you'll see players life Brees. How he still it seems like medicine Brady and breathes? They're old. Okay. How do they still have these close bonds with these young players that come into their teams and their teammates talking about them like they're best? How does that happen? There's something. Character wise that breeze and Brady has right now that Rothlisberger is lacking. I need your help with something here. Because here's what you lost. You talked about him relating to the other players, and I don't disagree with that teddy. The problem is it eight the younger players complaining about him and Tonio Brown is thirty years old. He's been big big Big Ben Rothlisberger his teammate for almost the past decade. And so this is I'm not saying that, you know, the he's thirty seven thirty thirty seven like Big Ben is, but he ain't twenty eight twenty one like did you Smith Schuster? The man is thirty the last six seasons. He's had a minimum of one hundred one receptors a minimum of twelve hundred and eighty seven. Yard. He's produced. Poor Big Ben he's been a primary target for Big, Ben. And yet that's where the problem seems to lie at this particular moment in time. So how do you explain that? And I'll put it up put it simply then because I agree with you there. It's a feeling that I've had with the quarterback that I played with and a lot of the saints and a lot of these older players on these teams that are mentioning they have the overwhelming thought in their mind that my quarterbacks got my back. No matter what that's what I think's not there in Pittsburgh. It seemed like it seems like if something happens the quarterback isn't there to either bail you out off the field the Bill you out on? That's what it is. I don't know if they feel the same way some of these saints and other players that this quarterback. He's got my

"We will join the AFC division game between the patriots and the chargers. And then following that. We'll get the NFC. Division game between the Philadelphia Eagles who travel to New Orleans to face the New Orleans Saints. And then the racing report was saying the Sunday supplement and Willie from nine to midnight tomorrow night. So that's your Sunday rundown. Yeah. Let's talk a little NFL little colts with Ricky in Indiana. Ricky what's going on? Fantastic. Brother. What'd you think? Are you? Well, yeah, we're waiting on the Los Angeles Rams season to end because it looks like Zack Taylor the quarterbacks coach is going to become the next head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals. So more power to the Rams and does act Taylor. Get a new coach in here. And let's get this program. Back on track. Because I don't believe it's one of the worst jobs that were opened in the National Football League. You've got a patient owner you've got out several outstanding players you just gotta keep adding to that Ed to the offensive line. And you know, Rick I can live with Devon white because I mean every mock draft see has LSU linebacker Devon white six one to forty. He's an absolute stud going to the Bengals at number eleven my feeling is. And I like the Bengals quarterback. Andy Dalton the red rifle. I think he can get you to the playoffs. I don't thinking he can win you a Super Bowl and a guy. Can I believe is Dwayne Haskins some day, and I like the Bengals to draft a quarterback into Wayne Haskins. He probably won't last two eleven. So you might have to go up trade up and get him. Okay. He's probably gonna go to the New York Jets or giants at six. Okay. And what what I'm afraid of is it the Pittsburgh Steelers knowing that Ben Rothlisberger is on the eighteenth tee of his career what one year max to me probably next year. Really should be it for Ben. They could definitely trade Antonio Brown because he is absolutely fallen out of favor with that franchise. Get a first round pick for him and use those picks to move up and take twain Haskins and. A whole bunch of Buckeye fans will become Steeler fans. No doubt. If that happens. So Ricky, and I know you're looking forward to baseball season, brother. So am I we're gonna talk who's going to be the reds center fielder? You got any predictions for me? Right now. Right. Well, I'm gonna put my chips to the middle of the table. And I'm gonna take Philip Ervin. Let's give him a chance and brother, we will talk soon. Appreciate the call from Valparaiso, Indiana, man. You are the man. Thanks so much Rik in Valparaiso Brandon's in Indianapolis, Brandon. What is going on paychecks for a little bit disappointed with I'm disappointed with the I like the Bengals stupid. I'm a colts fan. And what? Yeah. That was disappointing. They just couldn't generate anything and this this could be at for Adam venit, Terry. It is. I think it is what he's had a great career. You know? But I I don't know if it's the weather had an impact, you know. But I think Kansas City now takes I mean, I don't know if they can beat nor I could be wrong. You don't want everyone account New England out. But I thought we had a chance trickster, and I think a lot of people giving the colts a chance because. Defense is effective. But today, I think they just showed what they are about. You know, I think whoever has to go there. It's going to be hard for if it is New England or the chargers, but you never wanna Brady out. But I don't know. I think this year the chiefs get that stick it to them just kind of a morbid sense of if the New England wins tomorrow to have them get run out of the gym at Arrowhead. I would love it. Sorry. New England Patriots fans, but van I am tired of them in the in the AFC title game. I I am to see it as far as as far as the Bengals go. I I hope I hope they get the right coach. You know? I, you know, I mean, you know, the the Rams seasons. Don't go one. In hope. I wish the best for Marvin. I think he was a nice guy and all time for a change. But with the quarterback situation you were talking about Dwayne Haskins if the Bengals could draft him somehow cut me, they tried the read rightful or. Kind of like an AJ McCarron type deal if he would he would tutor Dwayne Haskins for a year and then Andy move on and make bigger dollars. Elsewhere. He would be trae trading. Yeah. He could he's like Alex Smith he could make a bunch of money elsewhere. But but the, but but groom Dwayne Haskins free year Dwayne takes over and twenty twenty. Andy Dalton moves on. I don't want to hear about what you're saying. Is you don't think doll the guy that can get you over the hump and away? Correct. Yeah. I think it probably win you a playoff game. I don't think you can get you to a Super Bowl and other that great guy. He's a good career. He's a good player. But I need an impact player taking snaps. As far as you say real quick. I know you won't get so much time as far as you see. Because were going on. 'cause I mean with not follow Butler, and because I'm from here. But. Did listen to you? See I don't think there's good as last year with oh, look who all you lost. But obviously football game tonight. But I did hear Macron's comment. He was not happy. But I think they're going to be okay. I guess against they're still NCWA. You probably know more about fourteen in three, and this is a very balanced deeper American athletic conference, and I'm loving the fact that Wichita states in there, and it's bringing back memories of the old Missouri valley when I was a kid, and that was the best conference in the land. And Brandon I gotta run man. Thanks. Yeah. Baby. I mean, I think so I really do. Yeah. They're starting to find themselves in just a huge boost to beat to beat Georgetown into comeback. Like they did. Thanks so much. I appreciate it. And I want to talk a little Cincinnati Reds when we return who is going to play center field for this club. And I wanna talk a little bit of the lineup one through eight man. Yeah. When we return

Raiders fans, twice abandoned, earn notorious honor

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Raiders fans twice abandoned deserve much better by an Killian. Congratulations raiders fans. It's official. Now, you are the most screwed over fans in American sports. Oh, sure. Others have vied for the title in the past Baltimore had a pity party. For retiring. Cleveland felt abandoned shame with Houston old time New Yorker is still like to talk about when two of their baseball teams laughed Seattle. Still would like an NBA team. Thank you very much. But nobody has it as bad as Oakland Raiders fans screwed over not by one but two generations of the same family, though, that's relatively old news. Mark Davis announced he was going to Las Vegas in March twenty seventeen this week has served only to emphasize the pathetic situation faced by some of the greatest fans in sports history. It looks like Christmas Eve will be the final home game of the Oakland Raiders. The last hurrah for the Oakland fans who. Who have been treated like dirt abandoned twice loyalty? Taken for granted served a terrible product from most of the past two decades duped into believing. There could be a winning farewell tour in Oakland until Jon Gruden arrived and tore down the team. And now, it looks like there might not even be another season to say goodbye, you can blame the city of Oakland for filing the lawsuit against the team this week, and forcing the raiders hand or you can blame Davis and his minions for pulling a tentative agreement to play in Oakland in twenty nineteen off the table in the wake of the lawsuit or you can blame the NFL which has been using Oakland as a pawn for years. What you can't do is blame the fans they've taken it and taken it and taken it. And now they're losing their team. Again. Many of these fans already have lived through this on game days. The Coliseum is full of twice jilted fans. Many of whom have passed on their abandonment issues to a second generation they. Had their hearts ripped out in nineteen eighty two when the team moved to Los Angeles when the team came back in nineteen ninety-five many of those fans despite having sworn off the silver and black came back for their loyalty. They've received just four winning seasons four playoff wins. And a prolonged middle finger if the raiders had been truly interested in staying in the bay area and this goes back to the late Al Davis. They should've negotiated with the forty Niners to build one super stadium to house both teams. That's the only logical proven solution for two NFL teams in the same arket. But Al Davis was opposed and his son inherited that position, which is ridiculous. You think the giants and the jets like each other? No, but they both belong in a New York market just like the forty Niners and the raiders both belong in the bay area. Where will the raiders play next year? Who knows the university of Nevada in Reno is tossed around as a real possibility. That's where the raiders. Is reportedly planned to take their training camp. Once they are the Las Vegas raiders. The raiders could go to UNLV for a year. But that would dilute their glittery arrival in the Vegas market in twenty twenty. Could they go to San Diego for year? Bizarre. San Antonio one of their previous flirtation cities. Also, weird Levi's that would only serve to underscore. How stupid it is that the two teams didn't find a compromise stadium years ago? Cal now Stanford unlikely though the amount of remaining fans might be small enough next year to easily fit into fifty thousand seat Stanford Stadium. Of course, Oakland remains a possibility probably the most likely solution. And how pleasant that would be a year of nasty acrimonious partnership in a building full of dead mice overflowing sewage. And faulty x Ray machines Pittsburgh quarterback. Ben Rothlisberger said the ancient x Ray machines in Oakland didn't work well enough Sunday, which is why his return to the game. Was delayed after a rib injury wherever the raiders play. Their fan base is sure to shrink the enthusiasm was sucked out of this season before it even began because of the trade of Khalil Mack to Chicago the investment in season tickets is too much for so little in return on Sunday. Despite the influx of Pittsburgh fans. The parking lot wasn't quite as crowded for tailgating as it's been in the past. But it was still a great scene generations of fans who've made the drive for years, not only from all over the East Bay. But also, the central valley and farther to play music and grill and hang out and talk raiders. This is our real game one man who's been coming for years said as he poured bourbon for his friends. This is what I'll miss for the most screwed over fans in sports. They were having a pretty good time.

Chargers vs Steelers: Post-game analysis

"Incident. This is sports center right now, I'm on Tony Collins. There was no shortage of controversy in last night's game. Between the chargers and Steelers all eating to quarterback Philip rivers seventh career comeback in a game in which his team trail by sixteen or more points. Let's take you out to Pittsburgh. We'll take this up for the chargers trailing thirteen to nothing in the I keep your eye on right? Tackle Sam Tevi. Let's take a false start. No plaque and Philip rivers. Throws deep to Travis Benjamin for a forty six yard touchdown. He J watt Live Aid at the no com. So in the fourth charges were rally sixteen down three seconds left. Mike bats Leon's for the game. Winning thirty nine yard field goal attempt offsides on the Steelers. So now that's from thirty four yards out. And the Steelers are off-side once again so now bachelor from twenty nine yards. He gets a done Tomlin was asked about the chargers. First touchdown. Guys. I'm not getting into all of the officiating elements of what transpired at high. It was communicated. I'm just not is fruitless it doesn't change the outcome of the game. We're not gonna put it into the ref sans. We need to play better football. Like I said we didn't play we didn't play well enough on offense. Now, let's get you back. I take Steelers sixteen point lead at home at Philip rivers. Engineers a seventh career comeback win to handle a three point loss to improve to nine in three on the season. Pittsburgh oh in three versus AFC west opponents this season. Max was this one more about the chargers or the Steelers? This is about the chargers, and they beat a good team in Pittsburgh on the road. Pittsburgh in the history of their franchise. It never come had never lost the game. They were leading by that by sixteen points. I mean at home in those circumstances the first time ever one hundred seventy wins. No losses and the chargers did it. This is about the chargers. And I've said for the preseason I believe they're going to make the Super Bowl this year. It tested my faith a couple of weeks ago with the turnover at the end of the game Philip rivers at a certain point you go. Listen, maybe you're not just snake bit. Maybe this franchise does it to themselves. Maybe Philip rivers isn't destined to makes. Of course. I had those thoughts not stick with them. When posted gets back. Let's see what's what he was making plays Derwin James making plays. They have stars on the defense. They obviously had stars on the offense with or without Melvin Gordon and Philip rivers guys. He was going down. It piece by piece at times with guys tackling them in the face of pressure sticking his receivers. He was so big time. He lied manning had his time to Super Bowls. Ben Rothlisberger had his time. You know, even the off sides, of course, the charges miss a field goal. And they're going to lose the game. All that. So chargers, right. Like, that's the way they lose sometimes new organization like that a player like rivers just needs a break to get away. What's up break went their way? And they got the win on the road. These are the two they've looked like the most well balanced teams in the AFC so far this season. And the chargers went and took it to them and beat them on the road. This is the charger season story is about them. Yesterday. Score is not about them about. The Steelers, and it was about still because it still has had a twenty three to seven lead and Lewitt. It's that simple to me the charges. Anthony Lynn is doing a fabulous job. He deserves a lot of credit. I'm very impressed with what I saw him. Do. They remain compose. They stayed with their game plan despite being down sixteen that says a lot about the coach their belief in him, etc. Etc. Mave respect for that. They they did it. And when special teams they did it with their running game. They did it with Philip rivers. They deserve a lot of credit for that. I get that. But my bottom line is this you had a twenty three to seven lead on your home turf. A right in those situations. Careerwise franchise wise you like two hundred zero into and you lose a game to the Los Angeles. Chargers. I'm looking at Big Ben Rothlisberger missing a wide open receiver. Nobody within twenty yards FM. Missed a missed that. Touchdown throw. Threw an interception again as well. I'm pointing to that. I'm looking at it. From that perspective. I'm looking at the defense. I'm looking at the secondary. And I'm saying to myself once again, we find ourselves with the Steelers team that is good. But shows us as a season Wayne that is. Good as they are. There is something missing. That says to you. I should not believe in them when it counts whether it's against New England and Tom Brady who by the way, they'll play again, they'll play in a couple of weeks they've gotten the wall leads and the New England Patriots on their schedule. Two of the last four weeks this season. I'm damn near depressed thinking about it for crying out because once again, just win at six straight. But they lost a game. They needed to win. And they should have wanted to get the Denver Broncos. Now, they find themselves as a team that's just gonna win their division. Go to the postseason. And then we got a hope

"But Big Ben Rothlisberger decides to open this mouth. And what does he say? He questions offensive coordinator. Randy Fichtner, not calling juju Smith Houston's number enough on a final drive. He questioned James Washington. Dropping a pass he questioned Antonio Brown's row. Running said nothing about his own damn interception. Said nothing. And then when you know, basically addressed. Over the thoughts of publicly criticising teammates. This is why Big Ben Rothlisberger had to say. Well, I think I have earned the right to be able to do that with as long as I have been here. This is what he told Chris a damn ski or Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune review. He says an I'll just be just as a critical of myself in the media as well. Well, I hear that. I haven't heard of that. He goes on being around for a long time with a lot of different players. You have to know how to motivate different guys at different ways. I think that's part of being a leader being a captain just understanding players. Sometimes you just grabbed him off to the side. And sometimes you have to be honest with them. So how does big win Roxburgh thing? Those he openly critiques whether it's on his radio show to other media where we ask we will ris at Big Ben says, go asked them, I have no idea. I would hope that they would understand that as the quarterback in the captain that I have the right to do those things. I don't feel like I abused that situation. So I don't think it's an issue. But you would have to ask them, wait a minute. I thought you said part of being a leader is known agus. Sometimes you got some guys you've got to pull to the side. Some guys you can sit there malign publicly. Now you saying they'll ask them, you don't know. So you didn't know how

Stephen A.: 'I'm embarrassed by what I'm seeing from the Pittsburgh Steelers

"Me let me to just a little bit allow me to express to you the alarming level of frustration that I on questionably feel at this particular moment in time. I cannot put into words how disgusted I am. That the Pittsburgh Steelers ended up losing this game. I can't even put it into words. Ben Rothlisberger four hundred sixty two yards passing wasted. James connor. He's no Le vian bell. Juju Smith Schuster, thirteen receptions, one hundred and eighty nine yards wasted. For two reasons above all else. Big Ben Rothlisberger leading the league in red zone interceptions. Do another one yesterday was Shelby Harrison defensive lineman getting blocked in the coverage. And ultimately Ben Rothlisberger throwing the ball right to. Now. We can make the argument that it's the freakish interception that Ben Rothlisberger may have ever thrown as he so eloquent it in the aftermath of their twenty four to seventeen loss to the Denver Broncos yesterday. Denver Broncos team. That's now beating the charges in the Steelers in back to back weeks, by the way, we could go that route. All we can state the obvious. If you watched it throw, ladies and gentlemen, it was an interception. No matter what. Whether it was Shelby, all whether it was Roe. I'm sorry. Shelby. Harris. Oh, whether it was Roby who had. Antonio Brown completely covered. I don't know what the hell big. Ben Rothlisberger was thinking throwing that pass made absolutely positively no sense. Whatever you can point to that specific interception. But it was going to get into septic. It was going to get into septic. There is no doubt about that. There's absolutely positively. No doubt about that. Yet despite case keenum only one hundred ninety seven yards. Despite the fact that Denver didn't have the most formidable run a game to speak of. They still ended up winning the game. I mean Lindsay did have one hundred ten yards on fourteen carries. That's almost eight yards per carry. I got it. But the real culprit and all of this was bent. It was turnovers from Connor. It was a drop touchdown pass from Washington. I mean, I'm just looking around right now at the Pittsburgh Steelers. And I can't even express. The level of my frustration. Because you see regardless of how. But thank Pittsburgh secondary looked earlier in the season. They had got things together. They were looking a little bit better. But now, I'm of the monster. They lost that game yesterday. And I said, dammit, they just lost a trip to the AFC championship game. Now. Now, I'm not saying that laser gentlemen, mama's saying that it's a very simple explanation. And you know, what that explanation is? It's the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers now dropped to what is it a fourth seed. Or at least a three seed in the AFC that means Kansas City and New England both ahead of you. That means to get to the AFC championship game. You're going to have to be one of the other one a row, and I don't think they're going to do that. Now had the Steelers and all likelihood possibly fighting for birth to the AFC championship game at Arrowhead stadium against the kids City Chiefs. You know, what if you had home games prior to that one could stand the believe who knows what kind of upset could transpire maybe I'll get lucky. Now, it's no way in hell.

"Confidence in receivers to Josh wasn't hit with any jaw drop one earlier in the game trust in their receiving core. About ten for fifteen on third down today for the Pittsburgh Steelers James Connor, by the way, as we mentioned he's over one hundred yards. That's the fourth straight game. He's got over one hundred. Raymond's called their first time out is the crowd starts to head towards the exits Rothlisberger in the shotgun. Conor to his right. Connor the Carey left side. And he's brought down right away by Judah the forty eight yard line gain of one another timeout. Call by John Harbaugh not over yet. But certainly the amount of time. Baltimore. It's a thirty second timeout certainly the amount of time that Baltimore could have had obviously diminished. They met a couple of questions on third down and haven't been able to. Really puts them in a tough situation here because they do have some timeouts remaining which one. And they're in a situation, though, where you know, the ball in midfield to almost go the length of the field. They were able to stop the Steelers here on this possession. Douglas draft started with five twenty three left McLaughlin, and we're down on two minutes now. Yeah, we were talking about, you know, their longest drive being over eight eight minutes. So it's certainly conceivable. Rothlisberger in the shotgun. One fifty to go one time outlet for the ravens and off Connor left side Connor tried abouts outside but he's brought down for a loss of the yard by Eric Weddell. Make that Jimmy Smith. Losses Ellwood earlier. And now the final time out and final charged timeout. Baltimore a thirty second timeout. And so with a stop here on third and eleven from midfield. You figure that Baltimore will be able to get this right around one minute, probably a few seconds less. But again as you said, they'll be backed up even the road territory. Don't forget about the famous crossing route here, Josh, and he could be. Do you think would risk throwing up third down here? Not many teams would but Mike Tomlin notoriously aggressive. They run by the way, seventy five place today. This'll be played. That's why all the statistics in the National Football League small these earlier years, they're almost irrelevant to what's happening right now in football. Here's the game. Third down at eleven from midfield rothlisburger in the shotgun counter to his left. One forty five ago Rothlisberger will throw it Rothlisberger. Looking Rothlisberger time Rothlisberger hit? And he goes down the forty yard line for a sack with one thirty five. Dave's moving. Matthew Judah with the sack? That's his now two and a half on the year. No timeouts left for the ravens. So the clock continues to move, and they will get a chance with no timeouts left. I think the most important thing for Ben Rothlisberger was.

It's the dumbest thing ever to put yourself in that corner. It's so easy to get rid of him. After he signed that contract that pays in more than God.

Who plays, the position should be built you know he, is in the Carson Wentz Philip rivers Ben Rothlisberger just he's that. Big of, an sturdy of a guy you know Josh Rosen a little more narrow shoulder and, you saw, that he wasn't as durable you know and, that that I think gives you pause even though, he throw it through the best ball and, probably Has the. Best command of a pro style offense going into. It it's, just hard not. To take that into consideration that that he, was fragile, and he got knocked, around at UCLA. Cost him games to concussions and a shoulder I think Donald is gonna I. Think he's gonna be great I just to and I think we. Heard it, you know I don't think it was really kind of for, public. Consumption but you heard kinda murmurs from the people around that team you know from the rookie, camp to the end of OT as there were like holy cow this guy got some coaching and was kind of taught you know maybe more of a pro offense and doing. A lot. Of ads while he was at, USC he's, got a bright football mind he's got all the tools. The arm, the intangibles again the big body and the, athleticism I mean someone who was you know a champion basketball when. He was, at San Clemente as well as football and you're talking about a real special athletic, kid that, also is a heck of a football player, so I'm still gonna to run with with darnold you know Ride or die that's even even though.

He's a leader and this was before you know the. Baker Heisman, campaign this was the. Year prior so I think there is, just some special about that you know the. Coaches love, him his players really rally. About around him but I think you've just kinda get that you know I think there's, that trepidation another Tibo. Is he is, he a special player in, college and a winner and, grinder and someone appreciates that but you know when those windows get. Tight when those players get bigger it'll Kenney, still do what he was able to do on that Oklahoma, spread where, sixty percent of the time you're guy you are throwing.
