Training Day

"The. Not exactly the first day of school, but nevertheless, old thirty two teams go back to work in some capacity this week eighteen today for OTA's organized team activities, and we'll look at some of the questions the biggest questions facing each of these teams who were on the field today. However, OTA's got off to a difficult start in the nation's capital linebacker. Ruben foster went down just minutes into practice. You can see impounding the Turkey is upset. No official word on the injury. Just yet, we will continue to update you as we move along. I'm waiting. And glad to have you on this Monday afternoon, Adam schefters here, field Yates, and Louis Riddick will, of course start with foster and what has happened with the Washington Redskins or play the vote, and more and more. We see this happen with the fact that these teams don't have regular practice. You see guys go down every single year with injuries. You just that this one isn't serious. Minder standing is is that the Redskins now? Are awaiting the results of an MRI on a left knee injury. That didn't look good. He was carted off. He was crying. You usually can tell when these types of injuries are serious. Now we should add last year. Garrett Bowles got carted off the Broncos. Former per drastic was crying also. And he missed a couple of weeks did not turn out to be significant so you never know. But this one did not look promising encouraging and the Redskins are awaiting the results. There are a couple of different layers here. Obviously first of all the Redskins and what that would mean between the lines, but also failed underscoring just a bet y player. Sometimes do not participate in these voluntary workouts because to your point chef de we see this early on. Everything. Even it's the risks that you run. And this is a player. Ruben foster has been through the most one of the most unusual pass the I two plus seasons of players NFL career. But you're right when you see a player like Odell Beckham junior who might have obligations of than Cleveland during the off season Wendy moments like this are gentle. Minder that these players ultimately their body to their temples. It is their livelihood. And it's hard to be grudge these players do not take parts in what are clearly unquestionably volunteer activities for the Redskins. I think the head coach Jaeger is probably saying to himself again we lead the NFL in terms of players finish last season on the injured reserve, it started early with Darius guys tearing his ACL in the preseason. It continued with devastating injuries along the offensive line all over the roster. And here we are, and on may twentieth. He stared down the possibility of a player that at some point Louis, they were counting on to give them some legitimate production. Maybe not being available right away. They've made a lot of this of an investment in this in this football player, both professionally and personally guys really wanna see Reuben foster do very, very well, I'll just say this off season conditioning programs already been condensed to the point where it's basically nothing. I mean on field activities are starting right now in phase three and having been through an off season a couple of different times in my career. I mean at some point time you have to practice football. This is this on. Fortunately, one of the things that happens that sometimes you go out there. And maybe you have a non look, obviously, had to be a non contact injury here because you're not even practicing in pats. This is just what comes with the game. And unfortunately it stinks it stinks all the way because this is a guy who really needed to be back on the football field with his player with his teammates with his friends and get his life going on the field and off the field. And go down like this third play into the offseason program, as far as on the field on eleven activity. That's thanks as a gut punch, this organization, I can tell you that just under score. What Adam said it doesn't look good. But we don't know we'll continue to keep you updated as the information, but comes available over the course of the next ninety minutes we do on now to one of the most about teams during the offseason for any number of reasons. And that would be the New York Giants, the G men did hit the field earlier today as well to begin OTA's and mung them, eat li- manning, who spoke and continues to speak right now for the first time since the giants drafted his possible successor. The data those it well and good kid. You know, just trying to pick up pick up the offense. I'm been here. Two weeks. So a lot going on. Right. Not right now is just trying to learn the offense and protections and footwork and everything. So we've all been there have been rookies and, and learning it, but seems have the right attitude and doing good things. When you heard he was picked when some very excited. So just watch it. And you know. Got got the word from coach cattleman coach Shurmur that their draft them and. You think for them. Those a strong possibility that they take a quarterback. So you know that's the you know, fine with it. Kind of pressure. And this to protect your job into win giving that Daniels out here. No. I mean, I think there's always, you know, there's always an urgency to win. And, you know, your jobs, go out there and, and find ways to, to try to get that accomplished and to play good football and be a good leader Biegel teammate and all those things. So I don't think anything changes from that aspect. Or how much added responsibility to do all of those things, but also kind of mentor. Daniel Jones along does that go into that party team. No, no added responsibility. I think the quarterback room always works to same. You know, no matter who's in there. And so it it's still, you know, you're always willing to help and just talk football without the guys that are, that are willing to be helped in that sense where, you know, just, you know, every day sit there where I'll watch, you know, your watch practice with the coaches watch practice just, you know, a lot of times just with the quarterbacks before you coaches get in there. And you know you don't just watch your own reps. You, you, you go through everybody's routes. You talk about the decisions that things that could have been done better protections. And you know, kind of you know what it's like to make decisions. And you know, when when the live bullets are rolling, and, you know, so I think there's, you know, it's always, you know, everybody everybody helping each other out in the quarterback. Again eighteen teams beginning OTA's today and I started by saying, look at some of the bigger question Mark three team. I don't think you can talk about the giants Louis without talking at first about the quarterback position. So phrase the question this way, you heard ally, what percentage chance to we see Daniel Jones start at some point during the season, it's fifty fifty now because I think obviously there's expectations that come with six overall pick. There's expectations that come with a guy who has been trained in David cutlets type of offense guy who assimilate pretty well into what Pat Shurmur wants to do and someone who everyone in New York knows, including ally is the future. And I think that the more he performs at a high level in these T as in the early part of training camp. And hopefully in preseason games, I think the more people are gonna get anxious to wanna see their new toy and kind of unveil them and put him out there on the football field and see what he can do. It's natural. It's just one of those things that happened. There. They're six seven and eight no. Of course, they're not gonna put him in there, but they will look for an opportunistic time to play him. If the situation more itself make no mistake about it. I don't care if it's manning or not because they made a huge investment in the kid, huge, you don't just let that to sit there if in warrants in playing the game based on his performance and as we were talking about earlier before the show began, this is the pick it's going to be one of the few moments that defines the legacy of Dave Gettleman giants general manager. And so they're sort of two as to what Lewis was getting at Daniel Jones takes over as the starter either alive, play eliminating places way out of the starting job or the giants play out of this starting job because of the rest of the team not being able to carry its weight enough for this team to be competitive. At some point, even though there's only sixteen games, you might have turned the Bauge towards twenty twenty and beyond and say, you know, something where five eight Ivan nine the last couple of weeks of the season and Philadelphia or Dallas has run away with this division. What do we have to lose persons? What can we gain? By getting an extended audition in for Daniel Jones with some of the pieces that might be around for him long term. And I think that's the key. I think the giants are going to give you manning the chance to go salvage this season and to make run a push. And if he can do that he'll remain on as the starting quarterback. But the moment this team slips up you tell me it's record at the break of it's below five hundred. They're lagging in the NFC east at that point in time Daniel Jones on the clock. Look just take a look at this right now. Right. Manning comes out in the same quarterback draft class as Ben Roethlisberger of the Steelers and Philip rivers of the chargers. Have you seen either of those teams use a first round pick on a quarterback? No. Have you seen been Rolf Bergersen extension this season? Yes. Have you seen Philip riverside and extension there? Done. Have you seen the giants approach ally about a new deal? No. All they done is use the six overall pick got a quarterback. So just look at the facts, they all tell you that they're getting ready to turn it over to dangle Jones but really manning. And this team control how much longer he will be at the helm. You don't have to fortuneteller to your point two three t leaves tell you, it will tell you meanwhile, side meanwhile, across the hall if you will with the jets, they don't start. Oh, TA's until tomorrow. Nevertheless, they have some questions and a job to fill mainly the GM position. Listen, this is a search this week that I think will kick into the next room. It was last week that they made the change, we've heard various names, I still think that Joe Douglas eagles VP of player personnel. It's his job to lose now. It doesn't mean that he winds up becoming the general manager of the New York Jets. But this is a guy you've heard in connection to this job for weeks now not just after Mike mcalinden was fired. And so, I think. Will speak to Joe Doug with some point time I think if they can get something worked out. They will speak to other candidates. Other candidates the chance to impress them. You don't know how these interviews in this process goes, I still think Joe Douglas again is the favourite and also pay many. He will not be the next. Where you people to float that out move on. But you mentioned Joe Douglas is the favourite may be amongst Joe Douglas, decide if you want to take this job at some point to, which, although they're only thirty two of these jobs in their prestigious, and they're fleeting in some ways for many people that work in the scouting community you still have to put your pen to the paper and actually decide if you want to take this job and right now, there seems to be some within the organization, you might contend though, that part of the reason why Joe Douglas is on the radar because he had him, gays such good cohesion that they would basically put all that to bed pretty quickly. The good news for the jets is right now. They're not competing with anybody. So they wanna take their sweet time here Louis no one else is looking higher GM right now. Well, they might as well just go ahead and fill the job, because we know where it's going, you know, where it's heading why because of the relationship aspect of it, you know, that really Adam gates is going to run this general manager search that's Cain. That's what it came down to between him and Mike maccagnan, right? It came down to relationships, so really right now, what would it benefit the jets in order for Chris Johnson say, this is why is the best jam candidate kind of come in here and right the ship? In this board visionary thinker. No, you need somebody's gonna come in and be able to work with that him and see things the same way and agree on the value of running backs and agree on the value of pass rushers and agree on the value of whatever position. You wanna talk about and gallon long and see things bills off the same. So if that is Joe Douglas, then let's cut through the you know what? Go ahead and get get it done with him because that's what's most important, no matter what, I think, or anybody else really thinks it's about that relationship simple as that. To see if they can get a dome with them, right? You have to sit down you have to get the contract worked out, yet to work out the dynamics of the job. So there's a process. It's not just simple. Given the Joe it's actually it's it is pretty simple. But nevertheless. Well again eighteen teams back at work today for OT as in fact, we'll see all thirty two teams every team in the league will be on the field. At some point this week in a mum them, at least today, the Los Angeles Rams. They are starting the process of putting last Super Bowl squarely in the rear view mirror questions, there, though, continue to squirrel regarding the long term health of Todd Gurley. And I think that's a good jumping off point field. What is the biggest concern for the two thousand nineteen innovation? The ram serve wrote up on a tray by you at there. What is the health status of Todd Gurley? He has been coy at time Sean McVay during the Super Bowl. Week say, hey listen all systems go. He's fine. He's good. No health restrictions. And yet Todd Gurley a couple of brief comments this off season as seemed to indicate that it may not be fully hundred percent now and people are wondering would ever be fully one hundred percent again, this is a player who has been unbelievable in terms of. Production over the past four years. But it's not what you've done Louis about what you can offer going forward. Yeah. Look, big picture to this offense, was ninth in the NFL in terms of rush percentage. They are running football team that really emphasizes getting after people on the perimeter with a big pinnacle downhill, back like this. And that's why you go ahead. And then maybe draft Carol Henderson, as well. What's going to talk about just pointed that I talked about him doing the drafts at the hold on anyway? No, all seriousness. He means something to them, not as running put ball but he means Jared Goff success. Also, he means something to this defensive success, also because they're so balanced, and they can attack, and so many different ways, when you don't have that body type you don't have that profile while I can throw a lot of things into a state of flux. There was not a player a running back. And this draft at Trump. They like more than Darryl Henderson, interesting. They got Daryl Henderson third round. They loved them. I think he would have been a first round talent on their board. And so to me that somebody that. I own the future, shefty finishes. Yes. Final news away. Right market. Dan Vinci's say sponsorship, Louis Riddick favorite word. Is there? All right. Look after what basically. Law season. If you will for the San Francisco forty Niners because they lost their quarterback in week free to a torn ACL. They were also on the field for TA's today, Garoppolo continues to make strides. The hope of course, that he could be ready sometime around training camp when it rolls around in late July. So the forty Niners get not one but two players back from ACL injuries. Begging the question what we might expect from this often do if you think about the role that jerick McKinnon was gonna have last year. They had huge plans and now they go out and they signed Tim Coleman. And they get back read in the backfield gets healthy. So they're loaded back there with jerk McKinnon being the type of weapon that they could do a lot of different things with now. He's been rehabbing with Jimmy Garoppolo. They've been trained together. They're both on track to be ready for this summer. And if both these guys come back that should be a big boost for the south. And I think if you're looking for a plus side, two guys going down injuries Jimmy Garoppolo. You see a guy like Nick Mones the quarterback step up and. That he can play and this league. But you look at the veteran moves aquisitions there it is Dave aquatic some pretty good players debt. Jordan Mathews good tutoring. OT as they've been reser him. Gotta keep in your fancy Reynard there. Nope. Up by the end of the show. Yeah. Just you wait. This is an important year. This is an important here in San Francisco. Starting this time to start making good on all of the investments that they have made during the two years of John Lynch, and Kyle Shannon is the GM and the head coach injuries. Obviously you need those investments healthy, there's some expectations. There's no question that this is one of the better coach teams on often side of the ball. The question remains on the defensive side. Can they get the most out of the people that they've invested in that right now is the achilles heel of this football team ten? They rush the passer. Can they stop explosive plays down the field how much the tank for guy like this and Richard Sherman? But on the offense aside despite all the injuries Kyle is able to continue to work his system, his philosophy just like his dad did back in Denver back in San Francisco in Washington, he's done it his entire career, and Kyle will too. But they've invested so much. Defense. There's so much talent there. It's hard to imagine that they wouldn't be able to get what they need from this defensive, they kid that's a problem because they've been so many high picks up their defers Buckner a really good player. D Ford, Nick Bosa Solomon, Thomas. They believe is poised to bounce back this year. Obviously some things to deal with in previous seasons. But I think that they feel like all these guys together should make this defensive from. Do on the field together. Speaking of investments, there is no more glasses or no more questions. I should say regarding long term future of quarterback Russell Wilson. He's done too big deal at Seattle last month, and so they've got their quarterback locked up through two thousand twenty three and they can turn their attention elsewhere. Which they have no choice but to do because we've seen fields and big money for Wilson. But there are other holes to fill on this team. I think defensively it's about Ken. They generate Pash rush. They traded away clarkin deal that they did because they wanted flexibility going into the draft process and not believing they had the resources to potentially lock him up and eventually, Bobby Wagner, Katie, right? Other guys are going to be paid jarran Reed eventually so it's not just can they find pass rush which would be catalyzed, but not just Eljay Collier, the first round pick. But Zeon so recently signed, and also wide receivers how do they account for Doug Baldwin meant to them? I understand last year was on his best and most productive in terms of on field numbers. One of the unique players and personalities in this locker and this guy's in sensational leaders that guy that could show you by example, for young guys an undrafted free agents became one of the best wide receivers and football he meant a lot to the culture of Seattle to finding a way for lock to build off last season. And then building some depth around him giving Russell Wilson records it weapons to be yet. Another MVP candidate question remains, also as far as why receives a concern. Kate mic f. Kate mic f-, although he's not up on the screen here. There's a lot of talk about being a much better all around wide receiver. Then what he showed an omits now remains to be seen how that looks when he puts on pads and it's seven eleven against defense affects pushing him around, but this is a guy who really could wind up taking. Maybe I don't I don't wanna say they'll take the league by surprise, but he's been really put into the box of being a big vertical straight line route runner, which many people are saying that is not true because he toward up in their rookie minicamp will wind up seeing. And then on the other side, we had Ziggy picture up here. One of my favorite players in the NFL. He just can't stay healthy. It's always something Ziggy that keeps them all to build as far as athletes, concern. You won't see a better one only four players on that Seahawks roster that played against the patriots in the SuperBowl changes fans say there have there has been some turnover. -nology truth brought to you by Geico. Truth. You think you can solve any problem by tuning computer all and on him and something that now turn it off and on probably? It smoking. Yeah, that's museum. Eastern reboot. Truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. And Nelson fire Evans all the time. It's all good. Geico. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. The teams that are back at work today. We mentioned earlier the New York Giants, we've talked about them so much during the off season change all kinds of reasons field, and it's not going to change. They drafted a quarterback Daniel Jones with the six pick that got a lot of folks tension. They have an agent quarterback. Eli manning who will play this season, it thirty eight and possibly have drafted his successor. All of that is true. What's also true without paolantonio is all over all of it. He's with the giants that I will turn it over to you. Now. Now. Hey there, Wendy, you could take the possibly out of it. They definitely drafted the heir-apparent the Eli manning, it, don't take a quarterback at number six Daniel Jones at Duke, and then sit in for three years as was suggested earlier. So this is a delicate dance between ally manning, and Daniel Jones within the confines of trying to rebuild this team and get back to the playoffs. Right away is a mentoring Daniel Jones or trying to win football games. Here's my one on one conversation moments ago with ally manning. Coach Shurmur and Dave Gettleman called me, and told me that they were gonna take Daniels six pick. And, you know, I got a heads up. I knew they were gonna get a young quarterback this year. There's no surprises and, and new there's strong possibility to take one with that six spots. So no surprises on that end. And you know, kinda just just watched and also way to see who got a seventeen and saw the trade to get, you know, someone else it. Thirty or thirty one so just taking in the whole draft and still got to do my job. And I'm still here playing quarterback and wanna go out there and do. Well, and it looks like you've been working out hard this off season. Now, the process starts, right? You got to try to win games for the New York Giants and also maybe mentor, there's that word mentor Daniel Jones. How do you do both at the same time? I think it's just been you know, you're, you know for me. It's just be a good person in quarterback room. I think nothing changes on that sense. I got I got my job to do it prepare and to go out there and win win football games and my job. Dementia was my job to win games. Well, I think just the way it's always been in the quarterback room here is that, you know, you're gonna stick around after practice and watch film your before before you watch film, with the coaches, you'll be watching the practice and just watch my plays. You watch everybody's plays. And so today, we're we're sitting in there. Alex Tanny and Kyle. And, and, you know, and, and Daniel, so you're all you watch you watch the whole practice and, you know, dang you watched them grow up. Right. I mean, I know watched him grow up known the last couple years, last three or four years. And so. You're in there and you're watching the whole practice and hey, you need you need to make this call on this or see the rotation that, hey, if you have, you know, it's just an open, it's a free for all, and we're just talking football, and I think it's a it's a great way for us. And you know, again only second year in this offense is, you know, he can ask the question if I can explain it means. I know it, and if you know what, and then you can go and produce it and play well. And so it's just being been an open open form kind the quarterback room when this quarterbacks in there. And, you know if he's if he's one sitting there and, and listen and take notes, and ask questions. And, you know, he'll have that opportunity to, to, to learn and be successful. And then I can go down as being a good mentor Shurmur said, you're the starter, and it's Daniel Jones job to get himself ready for week one. How do you interpret that? Yeah. Think you know as you said, I'm starters my job to keep that job to earn that job and, and get ready for week one and just like everybody everybody's fighting for jobs and fighting for position and find to do the best they can. And that's that doesn't change. I've been in Daniel shoes before. And it's and I get, you know, you want to go out there and do the best you possibly can. And hey, I want I went everybody on the team to do. Well, whether it's rookie receivers augments Lyman quarterbacks you wonder about to play play well, and do their part and, and have a chance to be successful. He's got a great mentor. Appreciate. When he let me give you two notes off that interview in the practice today. One, I watched ally manning and practice today. First of all, he's definitely trimmer. He's definitely slimmer. He's moving around better and his life. His arm was live. It was really strong. You could tell he was really spinning out in practice and the answer. That interview Wendy, I said, do you wanna play beyond two thousand nineteen? Remember, he's an unrestricted free agent in two thousand twenty the giant sewn extend him. And he said he definitely wants to play in two thousand twenty whether it's here somewhere else. He didn't say that. That's my turpitude. All right. Fair enough south. Thank you. We will continue of course to talk about the giants. Unfortunately, we will also talk about the Redskins noon because OT as got off to a difficult start. Reuben foster carted off the practice field with a leg injury. Just three plays in to as it is still unclear the severity of that injury, shefty. But. We don't know but didn't look great. We've initially Jay Gruden moments ago, said that it's quote unquote very concerning. And he didn't want to say what the injury is. But he said that he wouldn't be laying down crying pounding the floor, if it wasn't a serious type of injury is if team has had a lot of injuries. This was the third play of OT as it was a non contact injury. When you so for non contact injury on the third play TA's go down. And crying, you know, something is wrong with that Nate? He's having them or are they probably have the results back by now they're probably setting a handle that information. It doesn't bode well J gruden's comments, the look on the field for Reuben foster clearly, I think we all have a sense of where this is headed, and we'll wait to see what the Murrah actually reveals, and he was projected starter for Washington, probably alongside his former college teammate Shawn Dion Hamilton stepped in for Zac Brown at the end of last season. So he keep player. For a defense that you can look at it in terms of front line players is one of the strength of their roster was there front seven but that was going to be a concern. And if Ruben foster, MRs -nificant time, it's probably going to be, Sean. The Hamilton Mason foster, all of a sudden, the inside linebacker spot and urban foster who has obviously been as I said, so many twists and turns in his career early on. But the talent is apparent and that was the reason why the Redskins are willing to take the wrist and gamble on him. He avoided the suspension. He's been fine to game checks. But it sounds like those two game checks might be games that he's on even part of anyways, he was being set up for success in Washington to he had a lot of people around him that were rooting for him that he was familiar with that he was comfortable with that were pushing him along and Helton trying to keep Ruben making good decisions. He's in a scheme that he's very, very familiar with you're going to be playing a position within that scheme that he played at a very high level. And if you back it all the way up to remember, what Ruben Foster's film was like an Alabama. This kid is Ben tastic fantastic football player, so on. All accounts. Now, he's all now, presumably, he'll be off the football Bill. He won't be able to play. He won't be able to be out there with his teammates. The Redskins won't have him on the field playing where he's a fantastic player. So if this turns out the way Adam saying it's gonna turn out more than likely everybody loses here, and that's unfortunate. That's very unfortunate. And that, that's heartbreaking for this young man who was who needs who needs to be on the football field to be around these guys and be playing and making sure that he's doing the right thing to Adams plane. It's quite possible that the result of those Emory, or that are back and it just not public yet. We'll continue to follow this and let you know as soon as that information is available. But just to recap our top story this afternoon through foster carted off the practice field with an apparent leg injury. He was in tears, and apparently in a decent amount of Hanes coach Gruden saying, it does not look good, or I should say, more accurately that it was concerning. So we'll continue to follow the story. Well, we continue our theme this afternoon. That is team to take the field for OT as we'll see old thirty two. At some point this week, eighteen began their OTA program today among them the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. They of course, have some big shoes to fill with the departure of rob gronkowski. They did not. However, for tied in, in last month's draft having said that, Louis there are some who argue that this might have been Bilbao checks best draft today. One of them believe that they may be today, because this look at some of the players that they've gotten to kill Harry is just a monster of a wide receiver on the outside the maybe that of the bills never drafted before he is going to be a dynamite weapon provided he on the same page. Tom, we know there's a lot of stuff that's going to need to be worked out here. But he has that kind of ability. The so many, there's so many other players here, when you think about the open of Lyman that the graphic could do throw hold these guys kind of guys that Dante score. Neck, it will turn into stars. Damian Harris another running back another guy to add to the stable that they already have. So I mean, there's this, there's so many guys that I wind up being not day one contributors. They will absolutely be VO players this year and maybe started down the line here. And look I didn't even mentioned my favorite out of this entire group and that's tastes from from Michigan, who I think will be double digit sack guy, very quickly, if not these, I usually what the patriots have drafted at pro bowler since two thousand thirteen but you know what who cares? It hasn't stopped and fail for winning three Super Bowl and at the end of last season. Kyle van noy sort of said hey famously like guys can have your stars. We've just got a leak defensive football players that fit in for the patriots. If you look at their roster, I would argue middle class of their roster as in the players somewhere between. Dan, and forty on the roster is as good as there is in the NFL right now in the draft Lewis touched on in free agency. It was a little bit quieter relative to other notable acquisitions around the league. But they got guys like Jamie Collins, Jared vel'd'hiv, the Maria's Thomas on Lund year contracts that the upside if those players hit the upside will be absolute if the maritime resolving, it's the steel the opposite. They're all low risk. Propositions is very little to lose if the guy's wash out and don't regain the form that they want. So what does it matter? They don't lose anything. It's not hurting their compensatory draft pick formula. They're not giving him very much money. In a best case scenario. They recaptured the foam and play great. You know, worst case they move onto the next player and rely on those ten to forty in the middle class of the rust. It's chess early is just how bad would it be if I didn't mention the one guy on that list Jarrett's did on the fourth round pick from? It's not a Patrick Mahomes type of love affair yet. But it may be with yet we have time you sponsor sponsoring. Absolutely. He's got my dollars. This is this is put at that. The successor to the go while the I know this eight years. Okay. But you just know that he's a program now where it's going to be I like to say that teams like ruin players, not this time. Jared, it's on you. Oh. Argued that. Won't have that as a cross to bear. It's been an inauspicious beginning to Josh Rosen NFL career. However, the opposite situation, the quarterback traded just a year after the zone of corden traded up in the draft, the dra- throws it now. Find himself with the Miami Dolphins where protection may once again, proved to be a problem is he in a better spot protection wise, Louis great. But is it? Dolphins quarterbacks respect fifty two times. That's a lot in the bottom quarter of the league. Now Ryan tannehill if you go back and watch all of their sex, which I had done a lot of these sex Ryan took last year on him. He is one of those guys who likes to hold the ball too. Long anticipation throws are not his forte, and sit down, and you get frustrated and feel bad for the offense of line at different points in time. But there's no question here that both guard positions in the right tackle position in Miami are in a state of flux. They are not of the caliber that you need in order to put a guy like Josh Rosen behind there and say, hey look, we'll be able to evaluate fairly because we think you're going to get great protection here. It's all going to be a work in progress. It really has twice think at the end of the year. If you're looking at whether or not Josh Rosen, has reached its potential, you better remember context because he's gonna take these going to take some lumps this year because the people around them just aren't that good Texan lumps last year. So it's a different coast. But there are a lot of striking similarities like how do you expect a player to show? His full potential as to why he was the tenth overall pick in the twenty eight draft. When you've got an offensive London, patchwork Lewis other than Laremy, Tunsil who star, the wide receiver group seriously like we're looking at players are probably in best suited roles as third or fourth wide receivers in a lot of cases. Right was a nice pickup, lasts until he got hurt. But the wide receiver group is uncertain Tatham vision. Leave something to be desired Kenyan. Drake is a player that never felt like Adam gates was willing to get fully committed him as and every down back will that be the case now under the new staff of Chatto say and also Jim Caldwell but it's going to be a long. It could it is probably by design going to be a long your Miami. It's gonna take. I think some of the that we saw from Josh Rosen late last season to power through another year like this. Well, hopefully hopefully that serves him. Well, because I do I will say this when he was introduced in Miami, and it's intangible, and it's a one time thing, but I heard a different person. I heard somebody he'd been humbled. I heard somebody who perhaps matured. Who'd been through the fire so to speak of an NFL season. Any sound Jew Kabul, his great that he gets to spend a year a season around somebody as impressive as Jim Cobb on and you'd like to think that he'll learn a lot from him both on and off the football field. And if he learns it any plays. Well, guess what? Maybe he is the dolphins quarterback of the future. And if he doesn't play only doesn't learn guess what? Maybe next year, they're trading him after they take two over quarterback. In there in lies dilemma, what does playing well mean relative to the people around him? Guess how are they going to determine success? Because a piece of fifty eight fifty nine percent thrower seven seven yards for temp type guy because he's on his back all the time. It's just like really tough. You know what they're gonna do send him down the road. But you know what you get to watch every day in practice. You get to watch him on Sundays and you will know you will have a decent idea about whether or not the guy can play the league cardinals. And think so. Well, there's some news coming out of Las Vegas and often, not a good thing this involving Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, he was in Las Vegas this past weekend for a music festival handcuffed, but not formally arrested or charged as his cart. Ac- TMZ sports. He was seeing arguing with his girlfriend in a parking lot early Saturday morning. And then talking to members of the event staff when he as you will see he's shoved the man, backward, and reportedly pushed him to the ground. His attorney. Tells teams E after that video was released that he was released never arrested or charged Adam Schefter. There's a lot to say here. For starters. It's unbelievable how just any little thing now becomes the next big thing. Secondly. Ten twelve days ago praising the mature Zeke Elliott for paying for the funeral of a young man who was gunned down and state Lewis, Jalen MacKenzie and goes and does all the right things there. And pays for this, you know, and I'm not saying he did anything wrong there. But why are you touching a security guard? What are you doing out like that? I have no idea what did or didn't happen. But there shouldn't be any video of Zeke Elliott doing anything. That could be construed as wrong at such a critical juncture in his life. Everybody is talking about how he's grown up. He's matured. He's improved. And again, we've seen great signs of that. And then you see something like this, like, what, what is that? What is that responsible? What it is to whom much is given much expected. And you're absolute right. Adam, there have been so many signs have been so encouraging, and I, I was touched by the gesture of pain for, you know, young boy slain way too early that really was a seven of mode of the season. I thought I. Zeke Elliot and here we are less than two weeks later, and I get it. No charges filed wasn't arrested. Putting yourself in the wrong position to frequently that unfortunately has been something we've talked about with Zeke on a couple of occasions. And he's only three years NFL career Lewis commonsense. I mean we're not blame we don't know what happened like your put yourself in a bad spot. Anything else you know, look. Let's be real about sometimes guys whether they're twenty three twenty four like Zeki, Liz, whether they're forty five fifty like myself, you know, men women whoever it is. You know, you're out. You're in a situation. You get into some kind of confrontation with your significant other. Who knows that there's alcohol involved in whatever, but which which fast, forty to is this at some point in time, something has to kick into your mind and say, this is people are watching me. I have a lot at stake here. I need to some something has to click and say, that's it. That's it. Whether it's literally turn and run the opposite direction until somebody or have somebody with us. Look this Grammy and get me out of here right now because I'm heading down a road where I'm gonna make a bad decision where something's going to be misconstrued. And I'm going to be on video, and we're gonna and I'm going to be being talked about on NFL lot, and it's you see people do it all the time. And if there's a pattern where we're maybe we're around certain people in this kind of thing happens, or you're at certain events in this kind of. Happens. You might want to break that pattern. You might want to get away from those people. You might wanna make some life changes and everybody to some degree has been through or been in a situation where you've had to make choices where you've gone. Do I keep going with this would do? I stop and just go opposite direction. And he's at the make that choice. Otherwise, the Cowboys are going to make a choice. And maybe they're making one right now in terms of slow playing the contract negotiations the extension who knows. I'm not speaking for them. It's just one of those things where when you sit there and you watch that video, you can see man, you just like somebody needed to grab him or something. I gotta get going when you get going get out, when you watch that video decision making. That's right. He's just the decision to be there. It's incision to be out its decision to touch another man, but you. We've all been out where we have seen people do those kinds of things. And they're not Zeki Elliott not in the spotlight and you sit there and, you know, and we could we can have discussions about them to unfortunate thing for him, though, as obviously too much is given much is expected. He's in a different world. He's lives his life in a fishbowl. He's starting running back for the Dallas Cowboys, one of the most famous athletes in the United States. He has to remember that too. That's the thing he has to remember that and say, hey, look, I've gotta go. I gotta get outta here and that has been something that has. We don't know exactly what did happen. We don't know what led to him, shoving that guy on hundred. See this is this in off season which is equally wants contract extension. That's, that's what I'm saying. So he has to be able to go. Talking about right correct here. So if you Cowboys now Lou you're in the front office. Give you any pause at all. It's of course it's going to give you support. You're gonna wanna talk them. Of course, you're going to look at them. You bring him in and you're gonna be like okay for away from these cameras and stuff going on the come on. I want to pay you don't make me look bad and Dell make me afraid to do. So make yourself look. That's right. That's right. Right now. We're back to football more AFC hopeful who are beginning this week. Let's start with this. The chargers, how big is the return of hunter, Henry. We're talking today about a knee injury to Reuben hill. Right. It was about one year ago may twentieth tight end onto Henry went down with an injury. That's earned out to be a twenty seal. He's comeback. He's made it fact he's going to be playing ready for the season and he's going to be a factor this season. He was coming on work. He still for that knee injury may twenty second one year ago and had he not. So for that injury, he would have been one of the best tight ends in the league last year. So this season, we'll go back to being one of the best tight ends. Got now under Henry Nolan Gordon. You got quite enough attack there in Los Angeles, yards per -ception amongst that tells you how good and potent onto Henry can beat, which means what field Yates a fantasy for spectate in terms of tight end. Compelling cases should be the fourth tight end off the board. Obviously, we've got the big three, which is led. I guess you could make your own order, but I think it's clearly. Travis Kelsey, followed by Zacher. And then George kiddo who led all tight end receiving yards last year is going to be quite a gap in terms of where those guys are selected. And then we're hunter Henry is eventually selected. But if you're looking for touchdown upside, which is the best thing to do for tight ends. I think cuts Henry playing in that offense. Then the red zone it's going to be nightmare to defend. He can be the tight end taking off your draft board. All right. Let's continue them with Marcus mariota. We've talked about and many suggested I think it'd be among them that this could be a maker break year. So if that's the case then what qualifies as success now or never right now for Marcus mariota, Wendy? Here's with staying on the field for sixteen games. Although new ofensive Arthur Brown. It's basically the same offense of system that you wearing last year's they're trying to be that period of adopter nation where he's learning where everybody's supposed to be what he's supposed to do. He has to stay on the field for sixteen games in this way. Or to see a quarterback play out of final year of his contract with basically nothing in the way at least I'm aware of, of, of substantial contract talks, and here, we our Marcus, Mario. Ota James swinson also in the same spot, Marcus Mario needs to stay on the field and they have to be more potent in terms of passing production. I understand their different ways to skin the cat and they wanna run the football effectively. But part of the reason why other teams people run the football affectively still be great an offense because there's at least threat in the passing game. There really wasn't much of that in Tennessee last season. Only one playoff appearance in ten seasons. Now it's not all Mukesh Marietta clearly has been there that long, but it's time Lewis it is time for him to get going. I think feel the nil and the head Marxist taking a beating especially early on in his career where they really invested in the line of willing were a ground and pound type of football team. And they were trying to prevent him from those kind of scenes playing out in Tennessee. He does need to stay on the field. They do need to open up this offense. They need do need to have the primer players really developing come through for him. But Marcus first and foremost is gonna have to be smart with his decision making get the ball out of his hands. Not to take too many chances with the health. The body defense has to continue to come along to give him more chances. Meaning get off on third down. So we can have more cracks to really see what he is. So they can decide whether or not they want to invest in long term. And that's the question, right? Going into the last year of his contract. And what do they do long term? And I think they have questions about how he's gonna play otherwise they wouldn't trade it for Ryan tannehill this off season and made him the backup. So they want Marcus mariota step, but we're going to be the kind of player, they hope and think he can be, but it's been so many injuries that he's had to overcome that they don't know whether he can sustain it and stay on the field. It obviously did not come to pass but NFL teams thought Tennessee might be a sleeper quarterback target in the first round. They did not go that way. But I was a team people were wondering, maybe it's time to start investing. Again, step one sixteen games. Ability availability. What sixteen till you have one point. Number of feel teams today in OT as have new head coaches several of whom will make their NFL head coaching debut and that would include Cincinnati Bengals who welcomes Taylor after sixteen seasons under the direction of Marvin Lewis who have, particularly interesting tasks at a table who take a place where someone's been for so long in the culture really set by Marvin Lewis, as we say, Hello, from the film room brought to you by variety Wilton. The players talked about it. There have been logos put up on the walls. There's new language in the meetings. Everything about the building and the syllabi, and they're gonna Zeh seems to have a different feel to it. That's what happens when you bring in a new young fresh coach and getting rid of a coach, we did a great job there for a long time. But it was the same thing over and over just like if they got rid of me here, it is they burn some else. It'd be different. That's just how it is in life. And so, in this particular case Zack Taylor, I think it's brought a new found energy. And got these guys going in a way that they hadn't been going in recent seasons. You know he joined us last week on NFL live a half to say he seems intent on, on just being who he is not trying to be more of an Lewis in any way not trying to be John McVay being who he is. Which I think will serve him well players see through this players, see through coaches who are trying to emulate someone else. He cannot be on the bay. He has to be Taylor. Taylor will be good enough provided that they made the right choice. Look, I think his influence on the offense in particular, is where I and foremost, it's going to be felt Andy Dalton, we're gonna see Ryan Finley. Let's see the fourth round pick out NC state what he have the requisite impact on those two players the same way Sean McVeigh had the impact that he had on Jerry gold. That's what everyone is looking for is to make sure this offense of line squared away. Joe to win the ground. And they have one of the finest running the NFL Joe mixing. So he's got a lot of things with which has never been the problem. Cincinnati anyway, they've always had town. All right, again similar situation for Matt, flew, flew, or he will take the first. Time head coach and he'll take over in Green Bay from Mike McCarthy, the biggest question though, in this case, undoubtedly how he will get on with his future hall of fame quarterback Lewis, ROY relationship runs point we've talked about different times. And that's where everything is going to be centered around on the side of the ball anyway, because there weren't any big additions on that side of the ball. There'd be a free agency or the draft because they don't really necessarily need it. They need to go ahead and continue the belt young wide receiver core that they have they have to good running backs they need visors this go ahead and Louis embrace. What matters trying to sell him in terms of formation, variation place election, all those different things that they wanted to have an influx of ideas over Mike McCarthy, let's see if it pans up. It's about time that they're making a change here. And I think that the quarterback wanted this chance to work with somebody new, and I think that this will be relationship that sorts itself out over time. But this Packers team has got a lot of town, and it went out and did on Packer, white. Things in free agency. It's bone chip Reince spent a lot of money was more aggressive. That's a new GM to go along with the new. Hey coach. And again, we're talking about new blood new transfusion that, that happen agreements. It's interesting all that money is spent on the defensive side. What's lead to believe that look, Brian good against didn't think that they needed a whole bunch of players on the offense aside, they just needed new ideas. That's where coach comes in. So we'll see. We'll find out way to tell right play the games. Oh, yes, they did and paid your Gomez covering the cardinals Pedro, it's early. But what are the early takeaways, if you will from Cuyler Murray, and OTA's? You know, Wendy belief the strong belief is that general manager Steve time needs a berry berry, big bounceback season from this cardinals team. So he is he's going to go down. He's going to go down swinging. That's one of the biggest reasons they decided on taking Cuyler Murray with the first overall pick only one year after taking quarterback the biggest thing though that time sees in Cuyler Murray. There are three things he really likes about him. One of them is the quick release that he has that has been a little bit surprising. The team the other thing is his secondary decision making so far. Now granted he's only been with the rookies up until today. Today's the first time that all the cardinals players are together on the field. Secondary decision making is something they really think is going to be a big positive for from Cuyler Murray. And lastly, they think he's got the killer instinct, which so many, great quarterbacks have always had. So if Murray's able to put those things those three things together, this could be. A very exciting cardinals team for years to come. However, Wendy, a couple of missing notable players from the first day of minicamp here. Larry fitzgerald. Sometimes he does show up late. And he is a fifteen year veteran. He certainly has a lot of latitude, but Patrick Peterson who we know is facing a six game suspension to start the season is not here. Hey, thank you the early go into far so good for Kyle Murray, not the case in the nation's capital where the Redskins have a difficult start. OT as linebacker. Ruben foster went down jets minutes into practice. You can see him here pounding the ground looking very upset. In fact, there were tears, and there's no final word no official word yet Adam Schefter, but he has undergone an MRI and the head coach at the very least his called the injury concerning knows the troubling science here. You saw full should go down today on the third play during the organize team at stepped on the foot of an offensive lineman running three-quarters speed at the time when down is pounding the ground pain crying was cleared off with his left leg in a cast, and Eric cast gives you an ideal look all the elements in place to say that this is a significant knee injury. He is undergoing the number. I get back. The results will find out full extent of it, but nothing that we've seen or heard. Basically observe so far tells you that this going to be a short term injury. Another first week of OT as humble reminder last year on may twenty second was both hunter Henry tight end of the chargers and Paul world, the linebacker of the eagles, who went down on the very first day of their respective teams OT as both of them missed all of last regular season. Of course hunter Henry made regulus comeback really during the playoffs to play a limited role in that patriots game. But not looking good right now for the Redskins, the concern, of course, is that he would be lost for some significant time. We will say Hello now to John who was at practice today. John, what more can you tell us? Well, we just got off of press conference with coach. Jay Gruden who said that they're still awaiting the results of the Mirai. So he said, he did not want to get to emotional about the possibility of whatever it is the severity of the injury until they know the final results and defensive tackle Jonathan Al also spoke to us right after Gruden. Did you played with Reuben foster at Alabama and he said he was looking more forward that he said, Ruben or Ruben's gonna work as but off to get back whatever they injury is so we still don't know this veritable, but let me set the scene I because I think it'll explain why people are very concerned about what it might be this was the third play from the organized activity workout. It was Foster's first play from scrimmage as Jay groome said it was just basically jog through he went through the gap stepped on the leg. Skittering stuck on the foot of guard Tyler Catalina. And then he went down and Sean, John Hamilton, one of the other linebacker said he could hear all heard was foster yell out and. He was done on the ground for about five or six minutes being tended to by trainers. While they got the cast on what brought the card over team officials were around. Bruce Allin was around him. The team president Jake room was around him defensive coordinator. Gregg Muskie Collins came over to him and later, tweeted out that prayers up. So clearly, they know something was a missed foster then turned in was slamming his fist on the ground. You could hear him crying from where we were about twenty yards away on the sidelines, and then he left the field and the air was kind of sucked out of the place where at least temporarily impart because of that. So we're still awaiting the results, but clearly they are concerned about what it might be. Well, that concern certainly understandable. John, thank you. And again, we will continue to update you as we have official information on the injury to Reuben foster Cavaliers running back, Zeke Elliott in Las Vegas this past weekend. He was handcuffed. But not arrested or charged according to sports after this incident, he was seeing arguing with his girlfriend. And, and then somewhat of an altercation with a member of the security staff used as body to shove, the man and reportedly push him to the ground again. His attorney pointing out that he was not charged. However, the optics of this incident, just not what you're looking for especially shifty at a time when you're looking for a new deal this season whereas equally would love to get a new contract and adults cub, which would like to sit down and get a new deal for him. But they're gonna see this video, and they're gonna have questions for him there people looking into this right now to figure out exactly what did and didn't happen soon enough. I guess we'll get some more answers Louis use the term living in a fish bowl earlier to think guys on their kind of get it or you don't. And I don't know the right now at this stage of his career. Ezekiel Elliott understands ramifications of what the life that he lives is going to be either. He himself has to come to the realization or someone around is going to have to tell them look, Zeqiri you not to make decisions that do not leave any doubt in the minds of decision makers in Dallas. And this is not the kind of thing we're talking about this is not the good decision making. We wanna make now what we're looking for. But we're. Tomorrow. See then?

Yanks Comeback, Mets Halt Their Slide, The Warriors Win And Advance (Again)

"We've all adjusted our optimism this morning. Now that Brody van wagon and told us to yesterday and he said the Mets are going to remain the same same manager. Same players nothing really drastic will happen with this team. They will just keep charging. And charging they did last night is they actually want to baseball game after getting swept by the Marlins. But the Yankees the bigger story on the field at least would they an amazing comeback aided by the ineptitude of the Orioles. Jerry Recco is here with all the details. Cut Bartik, Jerry. Good morning. We're brought to you by the rates auto group. See the redesigned, twenty twenty Range Rover evoque at Land Rover Edison. And Land Rover Marlboro. Would you like the Mets, I of the Yankees, I thought we were going to the Mets, and then you just me with the Yankees. All right. So let's do the Yankees who appeared that they would lose. They were down six to one in this game after five in Baltimore. The Orioles are horrific and the Yankees are one of the best teams in baseball, and they would come back. Now they were helped out a little bit. They get it back to seven seven in the nine. And you would have thought they would have gone to the bottom of the ninth even but no. Hi behind the plate Severino. Coming back has a play at droughts. He overran the ball drop foul. They are not a good team. The call on the fan. I don't know what else to say. Other than exactly what you thought would happen next happen. Next, though, on one swung drill. It is it is far. Three run home run. Pull the scent genome to out night, hitting three run blast. Oh, that Gary is scary made it ten seven Yankees win at ten seven. John, again on the good night moon. Goodnight Orioles, is what it was. They get the victory. They moved twelve games over five hundred now to twenty nine and seventeen. Zach Britton the win in relief. Aroldis Chapman is twelve th save along the way Aaron Hicks with the game, tying sac fly. You had glacier Torres hitting home runs. All was really good. The only thing that you didn't like probably last night was J happ. Who did not pitch all that? Well, but he feels like things will come around doing my best to kind of maintain and kind of trust that it's going to be there like it has been. That's, that's all I can do. So that's the negative the sunny gray. No, no, no, no starts but he does give you a stinker once in a while in last night. It was a stinker. Here's glacier, Torres is feasted on Baltimore. I mean just yesterday to my on calming every every game just read through them. And I think on us just how it looked. Yes. Right. To, to hit really warm. Hang. I love this guy man doesn't not to like I mean, they move them over to shortstop. He's fine. He's still offensive. I mean he's fine, right. Yeah. In nine games against Orioles. Four eighty six runs. That's, that's what everybody should be doing the Oreo pretty much. Here's Aaron Boone on his catcher, Gary Sanchez and the big home run, when Gary goes up there and. And, and throws a good at bat. He's as dangerous as anyone in the world. Jail lemay. Hugh, a couple more hits, including an RBI single tonight. The Mingo her mono is eight and one with an area of two point five zero faces David Hess. We will have it on the fan with coverage at six twenty five. All right as for the Mets. Yes, you got a couple of home runs early from amid resort Pete Alonzo Todd Frazier and Carlos Gomez, then drive and runs in the third with a single and a double. But this game got tight and late. They could've used an insurance run in the Mets. Got it by way of Dominic Smith. It's up to ventilate Basit Carlos Gomez scores Dominic spent breaks out of a one for fifteen slugging the first pitch at slamming base it to center to give the Mets a five three lead. I would also say that Carlos Gomez is brought a little energy. Well, he didn't have a hit real. I don't know. But he's, but he's brought some energy man. You know what I mean? He gets the hit last night. He's on bass. He's like, come on. Let's go like that. Yeah. I mean he's always been that type of good energy player. But yeah, that was. Hit some fricken energy and they, they also got an early with the home runs. Here's Callaway that was big. You have trouble score runs for a couple of days. And then you pop a couple of homers in the first, it does allow you to breathe a little bit. Probably takes a little bit of pressure off on I shut up, especially with what happened earlier in the day. Font, Wilmer font went four and then it was gone. Yo that went to for the wind. He comes any throw strikes. He's got a plus plus changeup, as a weapon that he can throw to both righties and lefties. And he gets ahead. And the other thing you had in this game before we get to the broad stir was Adam Eaton and Todd Frazier. Yeah. Third inning. Right. It was the double play ball. And I know Mason MSN did pick it up them to kind of getting into it a little bit from from a distance and yeah, they don't like each other from their days of playing together with the White Sox. And so out of meeting was asked about it after the game of images find it here. So first of all, basically, seems like he just doesn't shut up meaning Frazier. Let's talk to me in person or visit or what it is split. He's always yelling across the in field at me. He's going to have it. And he says he can only take so much ignored him a couple times serpent coming across you know how to the point where you know. I'm not gonna sit a saying that I want to say, but, you know, you, you gotta be a man of some point on. So I turned around a few choice words. All right. But this is the one I like is always talks about how when you get the baseball fights. They're not really fight. Sure. Yeah. Because usually get the guy that's you know, kind of waiting until someone holds them and then they go like a lunatic. Well he basically calls out Frazier for that. It's funny I was walking towards him. And then he eat around a little walks towards me. Let us know someone held him back, then he was like all of a sudden was really patient, like trying to get towards me has there ever been a less. Interesting feud in the history of sports. Seriously injury teammates together at the White Sox. Right. And they don't like each other still. They didn't like each other. When they were teaming apparently not apparently now the thing with Brody that you're referencing what because I'm halfway through it at what point did he say that? Because everyone was like he was with Mike. And I know that I'm staying late in the interview because I'm about halfway. Yeah. I'm here in is exactly what I wanted to it. Probably must have been laid. If you hadn't heard it yet, but yeah, just just our optimism and keep charging. I will here he is not all of this is on Mickey Callaway. We haven't played played well enough and I'm not gonna put that in the organization, not gonna put that on Mickey because because we all have to have to look ourselves in the mirror here. He does acknowledge they've an uphill battle going forward, and we have to face reality, or we're five games under five hundred or probability from winning the division went down from where it was opening day, but we think that we can still change that he takes responsibility for the twenty one and twenty five start. When I look at myself in the mirror, you know, we, we have to recognize we have not been good enough. I do like the one where Mike asked him point blank. Have you made what mistakes, have you made as a first year GM, Keno, ES Ramos? And, and, you know, somebody other guys we brought in a trade or free agency. You know, they have not gone to the level that we expected. I don't view those mistakes. Yet, he says time will tell and until then he's not gonna judge himself just yet. But I said, a lot of good things. The one thing you don't want here was well set, Lugo place on the DD, ten-day Diene, which is a much bigger deal than the same thing right now. But it's just that it's not as funny. And then I, I actually thought the suspect is thing was a joke when I saw my son goes is this true that says, but his broke his ankle. I said, no, no. He had he'll surgery. He goes, okay? But they're saying that he broke his ankle, then I'll he had surgery on both heels, he goes, you might wanna check because I think he broke his ankle ankle, any broken thing. And multiple doubt on. Stroll started to slip van I lost control. I stepped in hold. That was not my goal started. Then I lost control. That your version of a wrap now it's nine inch nails a great song that sounds like techno metal from the ninety at Trent Resonator actually really good stuff. Oh, I know it was off. And again and again that one's good. And by the way, I know you guys left like after opening pitch and you left it in the second inning. But even like Edwin as. Out like that. Now, I was there till nine o'clock hits the first guy gives up his first and second. Nobody out and it's like never easy. And by the way, the trotted out Jerry's familiar for a second inning. He finished. Now. Of course, I was thinking about you that entire time when he made his second inning, because that's the thing you hate more than any. It's like Zack Wheeler, and Eric Feddie do go tonight. Red Sox beat the Blue Jays twelve to two Phillies over the cubs in ten five four JT rail Muto, the go ahead home run in the ten their Braves by the giants. Four one and the Astros eleven and one in their last twelve games shut out the White Sox. Three nothing. All right. NBA and it seems like it happens every single year. Well, it does the last five the warriors go onto the finals. Try to locate gets doubled immediately on the catch on for three. It's up. Bree one nine t one fifty Golden State, and Portland wants time and they needed time Tim ROY on warriors radio one thousand nine hundred seventeen the final score. First time we see two guys in the same playoff game with triple doubles. Draymond green eighteen points, fourteen rebounds, eleven assists. Steph curry thirty seven points, thirteen boards, eleven assists, and for a fifth straight year, they are going to the NBA finals. Steve kerr. Good luck. Stop and my two guys dream on is an amazing playmaker. And Steph is so lethal that he's going to draw a lot of attention so they have a real knack for work in the pick and roll together, and it certainly is working current his team going back to the finals. I just think the experience of winning titles helps you in these moments and it helps you continue to move forward. Just probably like a relaxed brand basketball like it's like in the middle of the season. It's ridiculous. I mean, this is all without Kevin. They haven't lost a game since he left. I'll be great storyline if Durant came back for the finals. And then they lost that would be a great story line after not losing a game since he's been hurt the that would be credible. Third time in three years, that the trailblazers have been swept in a series in a series. Yes. At least they did get out of one though green pointed to some of their defense they did play and have played in this postseason. We knew if we wanted to have a chance to win a game, that was, we'll have to make a stand defensely s you know what Trump Michele basketball is all about. Here's Lillard who does exit what the playoffs sweep the level of play is higher is more on the line. And it certainly has not worked out, well. And this is to your point. I'm off back to back sweeps. I mean it's another sweet. But he rather be swept in the Western Conference finals in, in the first round there quarter, Portland only scored sixteen points to the point of Draymond green planned defense. That's where they won the game in the fourth quarter allowing only sixteen points and those. Guys. It's amazing. It's amazing now. The basketball is available for Thomson. It's available for Igwe dollar. It's available for green green heads at big three point. Play three point shot towards the end of the game. And it's just I don't know. It's just it's unbelievable watching this. This is like a crazy story. You lose the best player on the planet, but I mean it's unique because this was a championship team before. Huge story. It's not like that is most box losing Yoenis, and then doing this, I know but still talking about a player in Kevin Durant. Now I wonder how bad that calf really is. Is it the calf? Or is it the achilles? Well, if he tours killers we'd know by now and there's no way, they'd be able to hide that I think it's camp. He's close. Yeah, well, they don't need them either. That's the other issue, where they're like, why are you going to rush back in jeopardize? It injury. Hurting it further when you don't even need them. Don't you think like this is like the biggest story in sports right now? I overall in totality, it's going to the championship. They haven't lost a game with without Kevin Durant, and given around sitting there most likely we're going to leave the free agency. Hopefully come into the Knicks. I mean it's like an inferno Damien play the last two and a half games where they floating ribbon his body. Yeah. So he wasn't at one hundred percent either. I mean they were a favourite still in this series. I mean I don't think it's. This crazy. You thing. I just remember the war. I mean the warriors at their best in a regular season. We're out without Kevin Durant. They won a championship without him to. They're playing better basketball now than ever have. Yeah. I mean it's just it just what level of great. Are they? It's not like they weren't great with, with Kevin Durant. I mean they won two championships. You went to finals MVP's. I mean, they're just this group against Milwaukee. Yeah, I don't know that they can beat Milwaukee with. Yeah. I mean, I'm not doubting them in any. I mean, I just that team is, you know, I finals to, you know with all the experience of this group has I mean I would heavily favor, Golden State, but we'll see. I don't know Durant, every time you hear an update. It's not a good one with him. Couple of things from football and jets coach. Adam gay says Monday, he was surprised with Christopher Johnson when he told him that he was firing Mike any denies that there was any power issues between the two you've Redskins linebacker. Ruben foster a season ending ACL tear in his left knee Monday. The bucks released defensive tack. Gerald McCoy Andy. Lamenting spoke is first impression of Daniel Jones. You know those it well and good kid. You know, just trying to pick up pick up the offense. I'm been here two weeks. So a lot going on. And I don't know why I find this funny. Janoris Jenkins also spoke because he's like the grizzly veteran now sure on a defensive side especially in the secondary. I don't know why I find it funny when an adult his calling plays nickname, Jeff when you get those questions to help you sharpen your game this world, of course, because they let me know that I got to be able to have my game at all the time. Excuse me. Jack rabbit. It's funny to me. Jack rabbits speaks fast. Oh, yeah. He definitely does. And Landon Collins gone. NFL everything in every move. They make about business member businesses, visit business, exactly right. Game six for the sharks and blues tonight. Saint Louis up three games to two.

Bring Out The Brooms?

"Yeah. Partner up. But I'm Mike little the sports tonight. Tony, you'd think we have any chance of winning Tony Kornheiser. I offered to sleep with the EMMY committee. I don't think that health. Well, you know, you to get the whole committee, you should just I did a five somebody, you know, streamline the process. So we've got two of these ready at what healing and what point of the allowed to say, we're pretty good, right? I mean, we got to do is not about five five would be nicer but to. You know, we're going to beat TI boys and girls in today's episode Najib goes in on rob Pelinka the warriors get ready to move on and Brooks, kept up wins his fourth major in two years. But we begin today with the Tronto raptors doing double overtime last night, what they could not to in the previous two games of regulation beat the Milwaukee Bucks. Why Leonard was typically wondrous when he guarded Jaanus onto combo. He harassed them into one for nine shooting. Meanwhile, he's scored thirty six himself will bind you were there. Did this feel like Toronto? Got back into it or just stayed alive. Tony. I, I hate to say this because I I was hoping for I'm still hoping for a long contentious series because that's what I love this time of year. But when you have to go to overtime even though onto Gupo had no game. Eight turnovers five baskets. Right. You know had no game. He found out early in the I think the second overtime and I mean. Let's face it. I mean any kid with an enormous performance yet, yet, you know, you need to overtimes to win onto the Pupo chances are he's going to be a lot better than that tomorrow night, and they're going to have to contend with him after being Anri on the court after one, you know. Okay bad game. I'll call it a bad game. It feels like they just. But look Tony. You knew how these things can pivot this game is in Toronto that building crackles. They are desperate to win again and show that the past is the past, not what they are now. So I'm not ruling the rafters out of this thing. I'm most people are I'm not among to go to the foul. Call fouled onto Toco out. I thought that was terrible call those an obvious charge. I mean I don't think that's what he's having a bad game. He's probably having a worst game of the playoffs playoffs. He might have might have been a worse game of the year as far as I'm concerned, but they have coaches to, they study film to as I'm fond of saying. So I don't think he's going to be that way. Again. I'm looking at. Auto and they'll, I'm projecting a little bit because Leonard is great. He's great. He's great. Both ends of the court. He is absolutely great. He's also a free agent. And everybody assumes is going to go somewhere in California. What is Toronto going to be left with? And I know you fell in love with Nick nurse because he's a cubs fan. So I know that you care about them. But I like you think that was a reprieve? I think they're going out. I do twenty again when you've got look, as great as Pupo is he's likely to be voted this year's MVP Kawai Leonard is the more proven player. That's play all the guys MVP of NBA finals. That's his problem. Did you notice last night with Kyle Lowry rushed over to put heating pants on Kawai litter? Quads. Is he going to player is he gonna play on? It's gonna play some us forty eight hours after playing a career high fifty two minutes. Okay. Great. Again, he's got to win. That's what they pay thirty million dollars a year. The Golden State Warriors, made it three in a row over the weekend once again, making a big deficit in the second half and beating Portland. The big news was this game was important, again, Steph curry, and Klay Thompson dominated Damian, Lillard, and C, J McCollum, this time, fifty five to forty two we'll do you expect the warriors to eliminate the blazers tonight, yet, Sony do if you if we'd had a show earlier during the weekend, I would have said to you think Portland's going to win game three and it's going to be two one Toronto date at home last night didn't happen. Tony. Again, this is there's no referendum anymore. You just enjoy this like you enjoy the great NBA teams ever when they get on a roll, and it becomes an annual thing to just sort of celebrate and be in all of their greatness. That's what the Golden State Warriors are right now. It would dollar being injured that hurt, even though it's not to be serious. He's going to miss that game and be out that matters because they're already down to starters. And won all league, maybe best player in the league and Kevin Durant. But at this point, how do you doubt Golden State Tony, how the warriors when curry and Thompson, and Draymond green who was just upped his already significantly high level, I can't you can't go against him. Can you so? Well, I think I think it's possible Portland could win this game. But I think the series is over doesn't really matter if they win this game. Let me go to Draymond green for second because I watched him in an interview after the game. And this is a direct quote. I realized I was doing more crying and playing on the subject of white got all those technical fouls and that seems to have turned him around, and maybe turn the team around certainly in the absence of Kevin Durant, 'cause he's on the court and what we know is not only a C tremendously important on the court, but when he was off the court four years ago in play offs of three years ago and the plants couldn't whiz winning because many technical fouls, and he got the boot with Steph curry, and I believe Steph, Korean three games. I think it's thirty six thirty seven thirty. Eighty five had this conversation yesterday with the friend of yours. He's actually underrated. He's a two time MVP he's three time champion and because of the presence of Kevin Durant. He's actually underrated. What people have to realize that I know you do is in terms of Thomson and green and curry they sacrifice their game for Kevin Durant and justifiably but they got game. They got they do not to sacrifice it for the short. Thanks again. They got one more series to go. You can't crown them yet as late great. Dennis green. That's what I said. But man, they wanted to behold, Tony the Lakers, will not stay out of the news, especially on the day. When Ervin Johnson sits on the set of I take for an hour and dishes on what part of what anyway let's his stunning resignation. If you're gonna talk betrayal, is only with rob. I didn't like that. Tim Harris was too involved in, in basketball, he's supposed to run the Laker business, but he was trying to come over to our side. Jamie's got to stop that. Right. Is so much information coming at her, that then when I say, hey, we have to do this. She can't make a decision because they said, no. Don't go the way magic go. You should go. Two hours later in a press conference introduced Frank Vogel. Tony is the new head coach rob Lincoln Magic's comments were quote saddening and is heartening close. Quote tone, we're does all this leave the Lakers, by the way, what a great day to be Frank Vogel, to be introduced amid all of this. So that nobody cares about you at all. So I watched as many of the clips as I could and I took away, three main things that I thought were important that magic said that, rob pulling aback stabbed him that he said, Dell Dem's leaked the details of the proposed trade when the war liens for Anthony Davis, and that hurt him. We said, Jeanie Buss, didn't give magic the power you know that she promised him so wasn't fun. So he quit. So there's two ways of looking at this one way, is it magic is expert at self justification that he wasn't particularly good at this and he didn't really work that hard on it. That's one way. And the second way to look at it is that magic was toward it at every turn by the people who were supposed to cooperate. With him. And even if there's a little bit of truth in both what is definite. Mike is the Lakers are a dumpster fire at the moment. I know you're going to say that, that what is your, your phrase? The Bryce Harper phrase clown show broke. Right. So breath. No good. It's no Tony Tony. Look, I have a bias, I worked on this network with urva Johnson for a lot of years and may again, and at this one of our lives. I mean, we're, we're pretty darn close friends, and my bias have to declare that because I believe that second scenario you painted in all these people who were put in. I remember when when magic took the job. Okay because he was working for this network. And we talk about it a lot. And I know what he thought he was getting into, and it seems to me, and I take his point of view because that's the point of view. I yeah. I feel magic is not being disingenuous. He's not lying is not misleading. This is what he felt happened to undermine what he was doing. That's what he feels I, again, admit my bias toward feeling that he is putting this accurate portrayal of it. But the Lakers themselves Tony. Wow. I don't miss they go from here. Most of your suing. They missed the playoffs six straight years dangerous Lakers. And by the way, the Braun James looks at this. He has got steams gotta be coming out of his head. Right. Cannot be Tony. Tony remember there were people last year who said, yeah, the Browns play for the Lakers. This is not chasing championship the way others might have others might in the future. He's got an entire life laid out that life is laid out. I sent to you once he seems to be interested in being the next dick wolf as winning another championship. So I I don't know teams coming out of his ears or not. Let's get to the thing. I know consumed, you all weekend, the PGA championship Bethpage Brooks kept going fourth major out of his last eight entered and he did it by leading wire to wire, which is in itself, a stunner, but it was unexpected drama when he bogeyed four straight holes in the back to let Dustin Johnson, unthinkable in the door and nearly suffered the biggest collapse. It majors history. I know he won. But does the way it played out dent? What's a mini scene like kept total invincibility tent to me is a little bit strong? I mean, something happened out there doesn't Johnson? It never was thrilling people wanna make it because Johnson bogeyed. I think will get fifteen sixteen or sixteen seventy something like that. So it never got it never got to be thrilling. But I will say this they say that you cannot win the tournament on Thursday. You can only lose it, he wanted on Thursday. Thursday and Friday he wanted. He was plus four on the weekend. Mike. It's very, very rare. Maybe in a US open where they trick up the course to make you go over par. But in the other majors, particularly the PG extremely rare to go plus foreign weekend and still win. Phil mickelson. Did it as Walt as well? But it's rare. So I would suggest the people just slow down the parade that he's the greatest player since tiger slow that a little bit. Don't you think? No, I'm not slowing. It really one. He did the situation to me, this one four of one half the majors he's into the last eight. I'm sorry. Twenty to me. He has separated himself now from speed and McElroy. And certainly the Thomas, the young DJ. He is taking off from them. He is looking back over his shoulder say, where are you boys? I can't see you. It's a meets only I thought it was a little bit inevitable. How could he keep that lead? He couldn't keep his inch. Interest level. When he walks out there with that kind of lead, which was unprecedented. I'm not slowing my world. You know how always say none of these people is Tiger Woods. Shut up right? This guy's not tiger. Do you think he's the best to me? He's the best kind of the under thirty five years at released twenty nine here's what I would have liked. I would have liked to see him head to head with Dustin Johnson not how foreigner who threw an eighty one up there. The moment was too, large. I understand that. I think that might have taken away from kept a little bit. He had a chance to be Greg Norman and be infamous. And he didn't do that he settled down on fifteen. He made a good par on sixteen Parnham eighteen made a great chip shot to get to three feet. But I am not. I'm behind you on this one. I'm behind you not. You did not wait as long on Rory in speeds and been wrong. I may have been wrong. Let's take a break, but coming up, the jets might one Peyton Manning, which Peyton Manning want the jets. Can I just say now? No. And while the laid out Dominic Brazil, are you kidding Zil? Have a problem with the ref. He Brazil should have a problem with his defense and not. He got up shenice is brought to you by dark Phoenix. In theaters June seven. Male time Vance dancers to elementary questions. Let me see what's first time. Here's I complex questions would pay manning elevate the jets or would the jets drag down Peyton Manning. Pretty me. I mean, I know this, you know, sort of a real story about Peyton Manning and his relationship with Adam gates. Are you kidding me? I mean if Peyton Manning has chance to be an any broadcast booth where there's national engagement, national relationship, you can see him in here all the time. He's Peyton Manning for God's sake versus going to the New York Jets who are waste of time. You always talk about this even though the team, you're using them starring ripping them. I don't even wanna consider Peyton Manning, wasting his time with the jets. Yeah, I know that, that he engaged were together in Denver. And both people were helped by that relationship. I don't really know why Peyton Manning would want to do this. I would think he'd want to keep doing those commercials. Who's a guy play? Yes. The country, western singer, paisley, does that Brad paisley? Those are funny commercials. Although if you go to the jets, and you win, I don't know, three games us look like genius. I but it's me to fathom. I just. Bring you there's way too much talk about the jets and the Browns nationally in the world right now. Are you will John Nick Brazil that the ref stopped the fight too early? Dominic is still just hope right now there's a nurse or some caretaker, with their hands around your head. Get soothing you because this is one of the norm ass- punches in the history of the sport. My god. He came his whole head says, I'm my legs were under me. How do you know he would tumbling back into the ropes? Tony is that you've been watching boxing, sixty years. Yeah. Puts his you seen harder than that. I can't I don't think I've seen anything necessarily harder, there would have been forty five seconds left in the round and while could've actually killed him. And we've had could have that discussion while he said, I can do that, in it's legal. And I would so the readily did his job. You cannot let this guy be put into the. Get it's, it's. It it's over. You gotta see Joshua the wilder Josh with. That's the fight come on, now, should the rockets commit to keeping Mike. Dantonio for three more seasons. Sure, one not the rockets can't get past one team out there. They may as well. Keep trying they can't get past Golden State is that like anybody else has the rockets number would dantonio done with them. They are a terrific team. They're wildly entertaining. They produce an MVP candidate seems now every season, they might tweak the roster more he's in sync with what the entire organization. Yes. Why not keep dantonio who's somebody's gonna do a better job and take your Golden State, Tony, what you think he's not the problem? He wants a job. He should keep the job. The problem is a the Golden State Warriors and the problem is rockets are winding James harden scores. A lot of points. He's always complaining always saying he got out. Chris Paul got old and front of our is no longer lead guard, and you boy. Darrelle Maury always thinks he's smartest guy in a room day players, Shiro tweets, the Rasi, Houston show gear, they're not as good as they should or gag this not as good as Golden State, haven't choked gag if Bodey express had crossed the finish line first in the Preakness should he have been declared the winner. Hate to tell you this. And I did read as much as I could about this in Canada, where this is not that these horse he's off the horse. I even know what that meant like, should they have gone back and restart. But I know you watched it, this is this is your life. Yes. What hap-? Okay. It's the most electrifying two minutes that I've seen in many, many years. He throws jockey, John, Alaska's. All right. So now he's because he's a horse and he's trained to run. He runs the entire race. We runs it on the outside if he won. You don't really win. 'cause you gotta have jockey, that's not the point, but could have been a catastrophe. He could have veered to the left, and there would have been carnage with all these horses. And you watching I watched it. Oh, much like this. It was fabulous to watch. And by the way, let me get back to one other thing because it was a great comment on Showtime. About your boy, Brazil that he was put into airplane mode, then he was on, but not fun. Functional enough Email. Let's take one last break still to come Washington might have lost a key player on the first day of OTA's, and the Mets will be without the services is unisex this, you'll for a while after an accident at his ranch. Why is he had his ranch being what is it? Wondering the wilder punched his. Every time people have the fifty four th birthday, Bruce cast, Cassidy is the coach of the Boston grew. It's who qualified for the Stanley Cup final by sweeping Carolina. They will have so much time off between their last game and their first game against either Saint Louis or San Jose, that Cassidy can book, hold team on a Disney. Cruise what I was informed the Cassidy was coach of the Washington Capitals from two thousand to two thousand and three. I was still running a column. I have no recollection of this guy. Do you will Tony? They had a mediocre playoff team is first and second. There was so bad. The position the draft. Alex ovechkin. So that's contribution right? Yes, not so happy anniversary. J presents on this day thirteen years ago. He got punched in the face by cubs catcher, Michael Barrett after barreling over him at the plate clearly presents was the anti-graft and clearly Barrett hitting him reflected the will of about five hundred major leaguers at that time. HA was haters of player, but he is great on TV. It's only also wanna World Series, then led Chicago two thousand five White Sox team happy trails. Chris long the defensive end is retiring from the NFL after eleven seasons. He was the second overall pick by the St Louis Rams and his later years. He played on back to back Super Bowl teams in New England and Philadelphia, he's become a well respected social activists, and he was dead hall of Famer Howie, long have more sex than any father son, duo, and NFL history with one hundred and fifty four although clay Matthews needs just to put the Matthew Stanley back on top. Tony long family has distinguished itself. So incredibly on and off the field coup. How raising no sons they did the fabulous family berry. They Halley must be so proud of those, they just wonder I should be running out of show. And so we go to the big finish the Mets saying you NSS for this suffered multiple fractures to his right ankle in an accident at his ranch. Your thoughts and this time he's. Recuperating from surgery, late latch with his heels or something that's really the more about that. Washington linebacker. Ruben foster was carved out for TA's Lynn apparent knee injury. A big loss. It's potentially a very big loss, because he's potentially great player. But there were a lot of Redskin fans didn't want him sign because of the allegations Ridgely of domestic violence. He's cleared to play the doll joke of it's to win the Italian Open is that significant Sony. The doll will not go away. I was looks like he's teetering his body his injuries. He'd go away keeps winning nuggets, president of basketball ops. Tim calmly has appointed turn down the gig with the Windsors death after surprise you. It's stunning. He worked for the wizards. It's a slap in the face of the ownership in the team in search firm. And the guy turned him down last one who's one five nothing now of three two on the sharp your. Karma. Coming back to get the sharp stone. We're out of time trying to better the next time and I'm Tony Kornheiser, Mike on same time tomorrow enough. Shutout win the north western the cross up golf all the live in the postseason right now for national championships. You love me Canada. Do you.

ITT Sound Off: Blind Spots

"Hey I T T fem. This is producer nor Saudi so in today's episode Julio Jamila Talk About the National Football League and the sexual abuse allegations against Antonio uh-huh Brown so the latest news is that Brown was actually caught from the New England patriots which we didn't know at the time that we recorded this welcome the thing I'm and I'm Jimmy King and this is. It sound off and guess what I actually looking at you because we are in the Harlem Studio Doodo Media Time together in real time so get to see Julio. It's always good to see you so let's get to it with our first topic. So on Wednesday Time magazine published a photo of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Yudo at a Arabian Nights Theme Party Arabian nights sitting parties like no distort there and so the photo shows him dressed in an offensive costume. There's no other way to to describe it that included Brown face. You can see him with a white turban and his face neck and hands are covered in dark brown makeup. It almost jumps out you. It's like Oh look fake brown dude so that was in two thousand and one Trudeau was twenty nine years old at the time and he was teaching he was a teacher at a private school and the West Point Grey Academy so after after the Time Magazine Story Broke Trudeau. He talked to reporters to apologize and he he was asked if there any other incidents he wanted to own up to so oh here we go so that's when he admitted to dressing up in black face when he was in high school for performance. We're not making this up for performance of the Harry Harry Belafonte Song. Deo and time also obtained a copy of that photo then on Thursday. There's a thirty instance of black face that came out when the Canadian publication Global News published a video from the early nineties showing Trudeau guess what wearing black face makeup again raising his arms and laughing so in a press conference on Thursday reporters asked him again how many other there are instances like these there were and here's what Trudeau said have you since been made aware or remembered of other instances and if so how many I I I think it is obvious that this is something that was deeply regrettable. I am wary of of being definitive about this because the recent pictures that came out I had not remembered and I think the question is how can you not remember that fact is i. I didn't understand how hurtful this is to people who live with discrimination every single day. I have always acknowledged. Would I come from a place of privilege but I now need to acknowledge that that comes with a massive blind spot sorry Jamila I i. There's so much to unpack here. Can you just help me out. When I heard about the first thing my immediate thought was okay. people do racist things but when you have power it's the racist policies that you either support or don't support right and then there's just one thing after another but this guy. I think first of all like you know the first photo that came out. He's teacher and I'm just thinking about the students of color at that school and I noticed immediately. Lee that almost all of these photos there are people of color around him and it doesn't even look more bizarre because you you can see the power differential there you you can see. He is completely oblivious. It almost makes his brown face. Miss Level look even more problematic in that photo. You know what it's okay yeah. Then something else comes out and then something else comes. That's the part where it's like. Oh we got this too. I mean also so trudeau began his reelection campaign on September Eleventh Elections on October twenty first. This is clearly opposition research that has been perfectly time not to defend this guy at all. Oh I think his apology was awful. I think when you apologize you can't speak in the passive voice. You have to own up to date you have to own up to the harm to name the specific wrongs and you have have to try to make amends you know and it's just it's sad. It's not surprising necessarily right like he is like you said a person of privilege. He comes from a very powerful Canadian family. A father was the former prime minister but you know I think this will really test Canadian limits. You know folks of color who are known for being you a little bit more laid back not as politically rancorous as the US. I think it's really gonNA it's GonNa show instantly thought of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and all the things that happen and we've kind of forgotten about that story you know he's still the governor of Virginia and I do wonder about this with Trudeau especially in that second press conference when he talks about privilege and the blind spot. There's a part of me that's like why are you saying that now. Like why are you now saying I'll well yeah. I have privilege and I have a blind spot. Why was that not in your DNA at the beginning ginning before you frigging like did black face to Harry Belafonte like the photo of the Rabi nights thing and he's a Rockstar. That's the thing about Trudeau. He's become sort of this counter to trump a North America like the boy wonder like he can do no wrong and now he's kind of like the the white privilege crocodile tears which to be honest with you. I'M GONNA say it is probably going to get a lot of white. People be like yeah you know. He didn't really mean it He. He owned his privilege so I don't know what's going to happen in Canada. Can I just read the tweet yes wash our fabulous in the thick all star and family the food media tweeted this during the trophy and it's quote he says Hey I'm thinking about wearing black or brown face for and then the friend says no don't do it and then washes says thank you for coming to my tedtalk final thoughts on this meal. You know it's not lost on on me that black face and Brown face. There's there's no black Harry Belafonte does not you know he's a light skinned dude. He's never to my knowledge really had an Afro. I think the bigger issue here. Here is the problem we have with political saviors and yes these figures you know we have this problem with. Obama right as he was deporting millions ends of people throughout the course of his presidency. He was seen as a rockstar. We have to look at our politicians people to be held accountable and people to sort of push. That's a great plan below and not to be over. We don't we shouldn't be there fans. No matter how great we think their policies might be. I can't believe we're going to be following the Canadian elections now now anyway so moving onto our second topic on Tuesday wealthy democratic donor Ed Buck was arrested and charged with operating a drug house administering methamphetamine and battery. This was after a thirty seven seven year old men overdosed after but gave him an injection of methamphetamine at his home last week. The man managed to escape and get medical attention at a hospital he he was also the third black man to overdose at bus house but the only one to survive the other two men were found dead one in January and the other in July. Two thousand seventeen prosecutors claimed there wasn't enough evidence to charge buck with the two deaths that happened in his home but there was still a wrongful NFL death suit filed against him by the mother of one of the victims twenty six year old Jamal Moore who died in two thousand seventeen the court filing this week referred to buck as quote Violent Dangerous Sexual Predator who mainly preys on men made vulnerable by addiction and homelessness. I mean it's Julio. I've been following this case for years and it's just been sad all around so if this last man hadn't escaped but might not even be in police custody custody right now so this is another example of white men getting away with violent behavior for far too long only what's. What's your take on this. So here's the thing in general this has been a bizarre story for me in terms of how it's been framed in how it's been covered. I feel that this notion of black bodies dying in this place of privilege like to me. I've heard more about Jeffrey Epstein than about this story yeah right yeah and so that starts leading me to believe like why why has this story not gotten the national or global attention that it deserves and I kind of have to step back and say in this sense. It's like here black men that are dying right. Are we aiming to the black gay men right that are dying whoever's crafting or covering these stories are they making the assumptions that these victims these people who died ride like it's their fault in a lot of ways which I'm Kinda like really I mean this guy's a Predator and why are we not getting getting into deeper conversations about this and then the other thing is man juicy conservative media on this story like all of a sudden. Oh my fears oh morality. Oh what is having here uh Scarlett O'Hara. I think I don't know who that is but it was good but you know what I'm saying. It's like all of a sudden. They're not worried about these black gay men who died Jamila. They're just trying to be like Oh. He's a democratic donor yup so I totally agree with you. Julio I think so I WANNA shout out first off Jasmine cannock. She's a Los Angeles based reporter. She has been following this case. She's the go-to person for new sources versus one that of course one person who's done the work right. Thank you for the shout outs so she's been doing the work following this and if it were not for her and the work of the Black Gay Communities Munigi's in Los Angeles we would not be at this point. People have literally been calling for this man to be held account for murder for almost three years and you there've been rumors that go far back beyond the men who died in his house more more recently so I agree with everything you said. Julio I think it is you know it's about power like when we think think about the powerful white men who've been called to account for in this metoo moment their victims often are seen as more sympathetic if they're white if they're women and if they're straight right and I think increasingly when you have victims who are on the margin you have victims for whom this is one part of their victimization then you know like it's harder to see that person is worthy of justice right so you know. I'm not surprised again but I'm glad that he he is finally being held to account. I'm glad I'm really grateful for the work of Jazz Mechanic and other folks on these cases and I hope all the other books in the world finally get there do all right now. We're going to move on to our final topic. You and I are both sports fans so we wanted to talk about this and it is the national football league. Let's talk about what's happened in the last couple of weeks with the whole issue of Antonio Brown who to be honest with you for all you sports listeners is out there in the thick. He's probably the best the most talented wide receiver the guy who catches the balls in the league right now so he Antonio Brown was accused of rape and and sexual assault by his former trainer and her name is Brittany Taylor and it's a civil lawsuit. She filed against him that said that in June twenty seventeen brown sexually assaulted assaulter twice during training sessions then in May of twenty eighteen. He raped her so Britney Taylor filed this lawsuit just a few days after after Brown was released by his former team the Oakland raiders and then was signed on by the New England Patriots same day the Patriots at the time said in the statement statement that the NFL would be investigating but didn't say anything about Brown status on the team and of course you have sports commentators and former NFL players ears and current NFL players either commenting or saying things like what Stephen a Smith said on I take I think it's important for the League to meet with Miss Brittany Taylor first and then after you meet with Britney Taylor personally as a part of your investigation if you come to the conclusion inclusion that her allegations are plausible that she's believable and credible and you div that to be something that's it's going to be a huge problem for the NFL then you act. I don't think it's right just to act right now. Based a storm okay this allegation. Come out about Antonio Brown. You gotta go because that setting that setting the stage for a whole bunch of people allow there to just suffer at the hands of of a mere accusation. I will remind everybody that is a gentleman by the name of Ruben Foster. WHO's The San Francisco Forty niners. The woman accused him of of of of some act of violence. I don't have the article in front of me. Please forgive me. She ultimately recanted her statement in court and said Lie 'cause I was upset because he broke up with me. We talked about it right here on this show I'm saying let's not act like that's not possible. I'm not talking about Antonio Brown. I'm just was talking about in general. We can't automatically assume that an accusation is fact because that is not true. It's not fact it's an allegation it. It warrants an investigation true before I talk about Antonio Brown really quick. Stephen Smith says he doesn't have the article in front of them about Reuben Foster. We actually do have the article in front of us about room foster and it's a little bit more complicated than that she recanted but then there are other charges and he got let go by the forty niners and now is playing for the redskins. It's not not as cut and dry as what Stephen a Smith. investigative journalists is doing using Reuben foster is an example is kind of bullshit in my opinion but let's go back to Brown and he still in the Patriots. He played his first game last Sunday. He did lose some of his sponsorships. Nike dropped him as well as his helmet company. Zenith Zenith in addition sports illustrated actually came out with an article saying that there was another allegation so anyway a lot of controversy he was released by by the raiders just after six months after a series of incidents. I let them to fighting with the general manager and then the Patriots still sign them anyway and Jamila. There's still discussions about about whether he belongs on the Patriots and everything and I'll just give you this because this big confession for me. It's like I actually listened to Boston sports radio when I need a break from journalism awesome and I'm literally screaming at my car these days because you have all these guys being like yeah no it's it's on Tony Brown. I mean he's awesome and it's Tom. Brady and we gotta get another super. Bowl and that's all we got until like there's no allegation. It's a civil lawsuit and I'm like this bullshit about the Patriots being sort of like up and see the Patriot Way and we it's such a crock. They're just doing it because they wanNA. They WanNa win another super bowl so it's annoying as a Boston fan but I I just went there so you go with a beam. I wanted to take this beyond because a rotten institution allows rotten people do run things right like no matter how talented you are you can look at the NFL fell you can look at a string of players who've been accused and found guilty in various forms of domestic abuse. Alton Smith tyreek Hill Ray rice and eraser roof. You're going back to you know the late. Ninety s this league is just is is rotten. I almost want to compare it to the NBA in the nineties but I think it's much worse than that. I think deeper Britain. It's not necessarily that I think was a cultural clash between black players and you know why don't owners this is so so deeply systemically messed up so what what do you mean by that. Sometimes I think that all of the NBA if the NFL had a leader of some kind of a player like Lebron James Sort of lead the direction of the League right. I guess you could say that person would be Tom Brady but I don't think that Tom Brady is like the typical like you know. Tom Brady has been asked about the Santoni Antonio Brown story and he's just like I have nothing like Tom. Brady has no ready for this one Boston listeners. Yes no moral compass when it comes to this. I also don't think gives a lot of power exactly. I think that's the key difference. I think that you see in other professional works league's players sort of have power whether it's through their C B as their contracts contracts. NFL players don't have a lot of power it's it's kind of a plantation. Mary much a plantation mentality so you know as a sports fan die hard sports fan I can. I admit I have not watched a football game in probably three or four years wow I listened to a lot of your forty niner fan so it's easy to all Colin Kaepernick on the team and I am but I also just it's so hard to to look at the landscape of football and I think it's really going to be incumbent upon fans once they see their bottom line actually start to dip in a meaningful way that will force some sort of institutional shift yeah but for me. I just can't reconcile the physicality and abuse of the game with the behavior. That's allowed to exist while Colin Kaepernick is still out of a job but also like Britney Taylor like my thing is it's like she sues Antonio Tonio Brown knowing that she was she was she was going to get like that's where the part where you have someone like Smith and other people saying well. Let's we can't believe her. It's a money grab and I'm like you're literally playing into those stereotypes of you. Know The jilted lover for me. It's like I believe her. Yeah like why would you go through through this shit especially with a machine like the NFL you know in the end. It's like you know the NFL Justin Trudeau or like very like I know a lot of ways because they are trying to you know they they speak about you know we're fighting domestic violence or we want to equate this we were held to a higher standard but how many blind spots does the NFL fell really have and are they really owning it and right now they aren't when you think about espn they have so many financial ties so these leagues and especially the NFL that it's almost an anthem ah for their columnist. Mr They're talking heads that come out and say something critical of the League you know if you have a dissenting voice like regional hill or someone they can't exist within that ecosystem and so they have to leave. I can't even get in Boston sports radio. Mike and I'm trying to call in and say I'm a free journalist and commentator. I've actually written for ESPN. Can you put me on the frigate. Mike and we start talking about this anyway anyway. That was my rant. Wow what a week Jamila spend a week and it's great to end this week with you in the studio in the city are but I'm also really really really sad way. Bill de Blasio dropped from the race. I'm looking at I'm sorry they dropped from the rain but like why would I always my. That was my attempt at humor. He had such a chance. It's true he was. He was a progressive hope. Oh my God okay.

Wild Card, AB Trade Possibilities

"We do time line for you on this Thursday ten thirty five and domestic violence charges against Redskins. Linebacker Ruben foster up dropped by Florida state attorney's office boss remains on the Commissioner's exempt list, and we now wait to see full face any punishments from the league. So it is wildcard time hard not to love it just a little bit more. When it really matters welcomed into Bellagio at the great, Adam Schefter, two three times. We're both champs. You know, would you know, Tedy Bruschi, of course, over on the corner. Let's get straight into this wild core. Weekend thing let's set the table for you right here. The colts will one in five. The Texans were Owen three. They've finished a combined twenty three it's the first playoff matchup between the two AFC. South teams says the division was created back in two thousand two the Seahawks flight Jerry's world for the Cowboys Seattle finish as the NFL's pop rushing team while Zeke Elliott led all players and rushing. So accept this game and expect Dame to really hammer the rock. On sunday. The chargers the ravens will week sixteen rematch. Twenty one year old Jackson going up against thirty seven year old Philip rivers. It will be the third largest age gap between starting quarterbacks postseason game and eagles close out the weekend in Chicago where Nichols and seen it all, but that's a cog. Oh D. Jack will the match up of the weekend might just be Nick foles against the bears defense. We all know that foles coming in red hot. But he's also the best postseason quarterback statistically since he came into the league in two thousand and thirteen number one in QBR and completion percentage over that time. He's going up against the bears. D that's top ranked and just about every statistical category this year, including opponent points per game and takeaways the key is going to be neutralizing Khalil Mack and a defensive front of the Chicago Bears tight end Zakar. It's told me that he wouldn't be surprised if he stays in early to help on MAC saying that they're not gonna let one guy reckon entire game plan. The other key for foles that continue to get the ball out quickly. He's been as good as anyone over the last three games in that category. Getting a ball out on average, two point four seconds. He said that the keys going to be to lean on each other and play fast in order to get past this bear steam, Jack great stuff there. There is nothing in this world, quite Lakesha. Cog. Oh, football and AC month of January. So we have to walk men are bears. Reporter he is Jeff Dickerson. Nick foles is the reigning king of January. We know that. But the bears defense is the best football. How do they plan to attack fulls? Jack, they say they're not gonna change anything. Is you heard right there? That's defense in the league number one in takeaways interceptions. Khalil Mack is that game wrecker with twelve and a half sacks on the season. The feel like they can pressure any quarterback. And if they do they give their back end so many chances to make plays now. Keep an idle on state. The Eddie Jackson the bears pro bowler in a second season out. A couple of weeks an ankle injury which spoke with Matt Nagy Jackson not practice yesterday. If a practice today. So he's limited this weekend. That's going to help Nick foles. But overall the bear say they're not going to change much defensively. Let's go the other side of the ball. Then Jeff playoff game number one for young Mitch Trubisky. How are they starting to prepare him the staff or that environment that he'll be in? They don't want Trubisky put too much pressure on himself because he's been guilty of doing that at times this year Trubisky admitted that employed very well was kind of overwhelmed in the moment in the second half their week one loss against Green Bay and that bears win over the Rams. A couple of weeks ago was the best win for this team this season. It was also arguably trubisky's worst performance with three interceptions. He said he wasn't playing within the flow of the offense. That's something has to change this weekend bears have comfort though, and knowing that Trubisky played in some big games as of late some playoff like atmospheres against Minnesota last week and a couple of weeks ago against the Packers. So if he doesn't try to too much they have success against the eagles. Jeff at those long Johns ready. Thank you, sir. All right. So let's look at Nick foles, you know, the drill postseason football in his NFL careers. The star of the QBR nearly thirty points higher in the playoffs compared to the regular season falls off. Also averages more yards per attempt in the playoffs in his seventy two percent. Completion percentage rate is the best of any player with at least fifty passes an NFL post season history. So it's experience versus innocence on Sunday night. Little like our crew in some ways. How does that? How does that play a factor? Is it really matter? What do you guys think with all that? I think it matters. But I think in this situation, I think Jeff was just said at about we talked about Mitchell Trubisky. He played in playoff playoff atmosphere last week against Minnesota. Vikings the Vikings needed that game. And we saw that bam based come out. They made a lot of noise into risky, stay within himself and did his job. I think it's about the running game. Getting Howard going get into Rico and going you don't have to win this game on you on your arm, all your arm straight. Throwing the ball down the field Jews his string. And his strengths right now. Teddy or his legs in ability to get out of the pocket. And if I'm the Philadelphia Eagles, I want to want Trubisky to feel playoff football. I want to keep the game close early. I wanted to be a fourth quarter game where Trubisky you do have to make a play on third down. It has to come down to you. And not that defense to have him on the field in those situations. That's how you make a young quarterback feel the playoffs. Feel the pressure. We've been there before this is the reigning world champions put the pressure on him. So he feels would play football's all about what here's the big difference in the Philadelphia Eagles other than Saint Nick foles stepping in. And leading the eagles to the Bosie. The pass rush defense has gotten much better salute down the stretch. Michael Bennett has been a difference maker down the stretch they've gotten past everybody there. And this is a defense that has three of its top four defensive backs on. I r fourteen players all on I r and get the pass rush has been good enough. Both lines really the. Offensive which Trubisky worry about and the defensive line to make a difference and help to get to the boat since thanksgiving I like to pay attention to set statistic since thanksgiving the Philadelphia Eagles are third in the league after site sacking the quarterback they've been surging after the ship. The fan is how do you know that pass rush? No dump off Tariq only slow down a little bit and a little screen game. Telling you the run running backs in his game for the Chicago Bears who play a huge factor because you're not going black Michael been in and out of defense along coming. So foles has been on another heater. We know that. But he's taking some shots along the way in this thing Jason Peter still banged up. So how does the rest of this offense of line? You think hold up against MAC in the bears. You don't hold up against these guys. You're going to lose you're going to lose one on one situations. They're going to get to Nichols. But you hope those situations are when Nick foles the frequency that. He gets rid of the ball. Jack is quick so to sprawled to Erz quick slants those type of plays play action passes. Get rid of the ball past the only way it's going to help mitt fold because he's going to take shots. Nick foles is used to take shots all the way back to. He was at the university of Arizona. He was getting crushed because the offense. Okay. I was watching him when he was playing college. And you saw the shot he took Fujin avian clowney let right in the rib ribcage, but he's still stands in their end delivers. That's who is going to be. He's going to be there. But don't take too many of those get rid of it quickly. And you still sure they took x rays, right? After the game the x rays came back negative. They didn't think it was a major injury, but he's clearly going to be in some discomfort. Now, the up south of the as you mentioned just the defensive line is played well down the stretch. The offense of line has played well down the stretch. And it is going to be more incumbent upon that unit that refer to protect this quarterback who's banged up against this defense in those conditions monsters, midway have phone with asandra jeopardy goes back Kogyo. So you can we'll get back there and that situation and we've bigger we haven't seen receivers I've seen alshon Jeffery early in the season. You saw a lot is Akers. But now you got Jeffrey coming up playing well Aguilar's find his way. Golden Tate's becoming a force. You just you're starting to see this offense with under Nick foles really exploited. The entire off feel you've heard Nick foles speak. It's almost like he knows it's coming to an end. I'm in Philadelphia. And he's playing like it. I mean, he's just throwing it up there. And in his receivers deep shots. I'm going to throw this the last time I may have this jersey on so that type of carefree attitude I've won a Super Bowl on the Super Bowl MVP. This may be so fellas be ready because it's coming. I don't even care if you're open, but it's going to be up in the air when the fifty fifty balls. So so I'm checking the radar here. Get leather getting a little weather of when we got in the midwest, Jack orgy degrees. Balmy forty degrees. Mommy forty. Chicago jackets, though, get rolling a little bit. You know, how it is? That'll be nighttime game. So they'll they'll still get cranked up as we I remember going to bears eagles game in Chicago, far cold. They've played they played the fog bowl cold games. Forty. This is going to be nothing beach. So with a week sixteen rematch flipping across the country. We need our fighters boots on the ground live from Baltimore. Welcome in or ravens. Reporter Jamison Hensley. James? We heard the more is hungry for that burst playoff win. But how're the ravens preparing him for the moment? Well, Jack, the ravens really aren't going to do too much to prepare Lamar Jackson, even though this is going to be his first playoff start. And you gotta remember Jackson took over this ravens team when it was four and five so essentially every star for him has been a playoff game. And the word you hearing the most from teammates and coaches about Jackson, you hear Hoy's maturity confidence and left tackle Stanley just told me in the locker room today that seems like Jackson loves to play big in the big games. And he relishes those pressure situations and the raves of seen it. He's going into Kansas City and taking the chiefs into overtime on cross country. And it's upset the chargers in his first primetime game and last Sunday against the Browns scored two touchdowns with the season on the line. I think maybe the big concern is Jackson trying to do too much offense coordinator, mourning mourning wick said today that some players think of themselves as superman and Lamar Jackson. He's one of them. I love it. And they've played been playing affectively play football down the stretch. And great stuff. Thank you very much. Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete glade since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights. He even slept in hockey skates. Pete practiced and practiced onto one day when he was forty seven p realize just wasn't that good. So he threw his gates in the trash. But then you heard how Di go proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out. So it was a buck eighty one. I think it was one eighty one two picks. What rivers finished the night with tough game. I was at home. Yeah. What are they have to change most offensive? We talking about the chargers in this game. They got to run the football. Audie Melvin Gordon's become more of a factor because we're seeing a max on the outside the chargers go into every game picking. Well, we Keenan Allen we have Williams we have better receivers more talented guys than you. Well, the matchup with Baltimore's. Hey, we got Jimmy Smith coming in playing the nickel. We got Humphries. We got brand. We guys like a match up with you and Eric whittle and Tony Jefferson. So we match up between the will they have to run the ball it with Melvin Gordon. Play more think more of a smash mouth game than just dropping back and putting it all Philip rivers to complete passage because running the ball you're going to be in more favorable situations. Third and shorts because if there's third long you just know where Philip rivers is going to be as defensive coordinator, wink, Martindale. He's going to be six yards to seven yards deep on that spot with no movement. So then you can have all the pass rush games that you want in the ravens off it's did enough. But they weren't excellent. By any means, if you're the chargers, d do you adjust you do things differently? This is what I look at this time around there's going to be surprises with the charge defense. They know this is our second time. They know what? Lamar Jackson about the first time. Okay. You caught me off guard when we weren't disciplined in our run lanes. This time there'd be more disciplined they've gotten their first Bill looking at him and seeing him now they're going to I think it'll be tougher. This time around pull them are Jackson. This what they ran last charges will be prepare for if there's any any facet of the game that I thought the Los Angeles chargers defense was caught off guard just those couple of play action passes because they got Lamar and they got there. They got that running game on them. Then all of a sudden, you take that extra step tight ends by on the boot they got RPO going the other way. Also, they've got basic play action pass. It's a good little action plan the Moore's gotten better and better. But here's the thing about the chargers. They've been most dangerous on the road. When you get them away from home, which has been almost like a real game for them because opposing team's fans infiltrate. The stubhub center, which is called the stub up center anymore. Now, they're they're seven and one on the road this year. They've been the best rotea in the NFL along with the New Orleans Saints and they've gotten a glimpse at Lamar Jackson tough guy to prepare for. But he's the youngest quarterback ever to be making a postseason start. This'll be a new experience for him. It won't be such a new experience for team that's thrived on the road. And yes, Baltimore is one of the toughest teams in the league to face a team. You don't wanna see in the postseason? But the chargers have the elements that takes to match up with them, and we'll see whether or not Philip. Of course, the problem. I do have at the charges. They're slow start. They've had so begin games. They've started off so slow and they come alive in the second half. They cannot start slow going into Baltimore with that defense and Lamar Jackson. How the ball control control the clock? They gotta get starting fast early in his game. Make the big plays. They need just quickly. How important you to plan bazillion playoff games three Super Bowls each? So so tell me this. Being home and your first playoff game starting quarterback. How important is that for more Jackson? Well, I think it's a huge advantage a huge advantage to where everything's familiar. You know, you have you're not gonna be dealing with crowd noise. Those type of things I mean to to settle down a young quarterback like Lamar Jackson early if I were mardi morning and make sure he gets that run quick that quarterback power that quarterback counter. Just let them get that run to seven his nurse before he has to make that I throw. But if he does that he'll be fine. He's twenty one years old. We'll see what he can do what you were doing twenty. You're still twenty one. But think about what you were doing it to anyone you know, what I was doing. So there's more drama in Pittsburgh and no game this week. So when we take a look at the finances, maybe Adam how likely is it do you think that they'd actually trade I for most I think when you talk to people around the league, they say that the situation is even worse than what is being portrayed in the public. So we get an idea of what goes on behind closed doors. We in the public have an idea of some of these things, but it's gotten to the point where I think a lot of people around league believe that the Pittsburgh Steelers will be open to trading Antonio Brown who has not requested a trade. But you see some of the money's there. He's do a two and a half million dollar roster bonus on the fifth day two thousand nineteen league year would be March eighteenth. So really that you're on official deadline. They have up until the fifth day. They could read to make trade for Antonio Brown today if they want remember the Washington Redskins trip Alex Smith Super Bowl the Super Bowl last year. But it cannot be processed. It cannot become official until the new league year begins on March thirteenth the money is such that. Yes. There would be a cap hit of twenty one plus million dollars. But you'd have money that comes off the books while you're eating that money. Cap is not as important as cash actual cash outlay. You can always make the cap where you can always restructure more contracts. Get more people to read it. You can do anything you want with the cath cash is a bigger issue cash is not a concern here. And so for that reason alone. So it's doable. This is doable. It's absolutely doable. There are people who believe it's doable. He's thirty one years old. We just saw the Dallas Cowboys give up a first round draft pick for Amari Cooper. Who is not as productive who is not as a -ccomplish as in Tonio Brown who's had seven straight seasons of a hundred plus yard catches. He's at unparallel production. But he's thirty one. The contract is friendly contract is friendlier. Being Pittsburgh's paid him his guaranteed money to cap number twelve million for the next three years. So again, keeping attractive to other teams. There will be team. Gms that will have some level of interest. I think in the end the Pittsburgh Steelers. Get back with say first round pick that the Cowboys gave up for a twenty four year old wide receiver in Amari Cooper. Maybe a little more maybe a little less depending on how many teams are involved believe that what I see it if they would really get rid of their best offensive player. I know they've juju. Smith Schuster was the team VP probably obsession Tonio little bit also. But he was very productive juju. Can he be the number one? But you saw this year how levian bell was not there Connor came in. And did the job. You've got your back there for the future. What happened when Connor went down? That's being started to see a little bit of a little bit of a difference. They still productive and one about having no Connor hurt them. So if a bee is gone Jews number one. Now, you're debt is just effected. This team is what we have to the students at the pump the brakes before we start thinking about trading. Aby right now. Everything's a little volatile right now. But maybe they need to step back from this. And then say, okay, look, we've already lost lady on bell. We're losing him. We're gonna lose possibly our best player on the football team Antonio Brown because we had a fall out. Let's let's figure things I'm all for understanding that Antonio Brown needs to be disciplined. They're disciplined here. But when we start talking about trading the right where you said the right word, and that's emotions everybody's emotional rightness. Let's Steeler on Omar's. We didn't make the playoffs all of the drama that went in. If I'm a Steeler player. I just wanna say I want how to here and fix it. Coach you do your job. I'm gonna do mine, which is go. This course and get on vacation. This is a this is not just about what happened last week. This is about an accumulation of incidence. This is about an accumulation of relationship. This is about a larger body of work then just last week. Okay. It didn't just happen. We're not saying that trait is possible based off one incident from last week. We're talking about other instance, from using you say, okay, what about? The death. And again his production is peril. I want to say that he's one of the two or three best. So they gave me but every team every team in time is issues the younger players and they go on. And they've got you and got he Lada they've got James Washington. And no team in the league is a better job of drafting wide receivers developing. What receivers the Pittsburgh Steelers you'll replace that production, but you can find somebody else. Oh boy. You said you could no no deductions nothing. But if you listen to what you're talking about in. If you listen to Mike Tomlin, and what he said, and we talked he brought a darkest hour in terms of our darkest hour, and then he was not their darkest hour. I hear last straw. This. Was it broke the camels back? I just can't take it anymore and as leaders in the locker rooms at time just like coach claw handle Hanley don't worry. We'll get this guy. Right. But there comes a time leaders in the locker room like Darren I look to the coach and say, you know, what you do your job. Now, you do your job in handle this because he's out of control in Tomlin did that. He sat him for the Bengal game. I mean in a game where they needed and he couldn't handle it and sat him. So now what you do in the off season. How did this go down in New England? I mean, there's something like this happens in doing. Well, we go he would have been traded a year and a half ago is what how this would have never would have gotten to this point. He would have been out of there. By now because Bella check would have seen would have seen where this was going based on his behavior. He would have talked to his veteran leadership and saying it's coming out of control here. We're lose or getting off the rails. And then he would eventually got rid of him before it got to the point where you got to a game and at your darkest hour and now you can't play him because he's done enough to. That's the word is conduct detrimental to your team that you just can't have him out there because he's that much of a distraction about between for this team within office. How many more years of we talking about maybe maybe one year left? You're okay. So you're going to let AB go we're gonna let you go, and we're gonna say jujubes guy and then Washington. Without lay beyond bail. So we're going to basically get rid of our two best players. And we're going to say we have the opportunity to win a championship. We'd been Rothlisberger. When it's not happening fellas this window of opportunity, if you let go then Ben's going to be on the next year. And now we go all over against. You think that you got young players that are so a borderline special. Okay. James connors. Good player. I don't want him continually see this because I don't know James, right? But it seems like this is a guy that does it the right way. You're the type of guy that we want in this locker room leading this team your story, your leadership what you've been for that community. And there we want this to be the new norm. And we want this out. How many how many? How many how many times have you seen New England move on from a star player for different reasons? Albeit Richard Seymour or Chandler Jones or any player that you call. But there have been some great players that New England's dispatched over the years. Right. Bill headed it's so hard to imagine a star like Antonio who. So great before what he does team could actually move on from them. But they can. And they do this happens. That's the NFL. I just think at some point you gotta sit back as an organization say, okay. Let's let the smoke clear little bit. This this thick with clear his let's not make decision. And let's figure this plans appear in this him wanting to keep your network darkest hour Tomlin's had enough. That's all that's all. They remember. I can't get that out of my mind of here in that hear him say that at that point. It's all on the line, man. We still don't want you. We still don't need you to play agents calling me and telling me that you can play. It's not on the I'm in. I'm in a lot of stuff going on there. There's a lot of stuff I'm in no way talked about this job. So we gotta do let's pass catcher spotlight big wild card weekend. Believe it or not there's still some teams will fight for ring. Let's go to this has Kutcher with the best match out that he started. Okay. I'm going to start t y Hilton has done incredible things versus the Texans this year that that's. Obvious eight hundred sixty three pass yards versus the Texans this season. So he's going to be my matchup. They tried pressing. John Joseph did were they tried off. Good work. They tried being deep on play action pass work run deep enough. So this has got to be my matchup. I mean, something's gotta be done. But in the past based on what I've seen. This has got to be good matchup. I'm gonna go worst matchup. I'm gonna go with Zach irk. You know, you look at Zach and he's had a great season. But now going up against this ACOG obeys defense who find ways to get balls out. Find ways to cover you stream the well on the route. I think is going to be so much pressure on Nichols. Not gonna have time to get the ball to Zach. This week Zack is gonna have to worst matchup this week. Okay. I'm going factor here, and I'm going to go with the Baltimore raven passing attack from Lamar Jackson. Yes. The passing attack but off of play action and watch the Baltimore tight ends versus the Los Angeles. Chargers all of these linebackers and safety is going to be a nam by the run game by Eljay, the boots the RPO's they're going to be the ones where boil or a Hurst and Ruth making plays like this. They're going to have to react off of this. And it's going to be tough to do without Andrews can run to out. What about a storyline? They're watching the past. Listen punter Henry's been practicing with the chargers and then not ready to proclaim him back yet. But. Untold he's expected to play and won't be on a full-time basis. Expect them some type role and when he is out there is a difference maker and he can make a difference in this game tour of his knee in mate will make it back to season. That'd be quite a story. And quite a big boost for the chargers on Sunday.

Honestly, I really don't know the Cleveland Browns have signed I'm willing to get them to dream jobs. I do not believe people deserve second chances NBA rule regarding tampering anking player. Rest are not working. If you're going to tank at this point don't be so Dag on obvious with fans are complaining. What's the whole sporting just in Berlinger tweeted the system is broken these guys one three to four hundred million dollars nature. Baseball's economic system is broken. What you see change your perception any sporting events. Get this. Welcome to out side the lines. I'm Ryan Smith. He handed the largest baseball contract in history to Giancarlo Stanton. Why a former president of the Marlins says that type of big deal isn't likely to happen for Harper Machado. That's coming up. But our big story today the Browns signing Kareem hunt just over two months ago TMZ released this video of the all pro running back shoving and kicking a woman the hunt. Previously denied the incident occurred was released just days later by the chiefs that incident occurring in Cleveland hotel, last February now hunt worrying that Cleveland Browns sweatshirt fresh off signing a one year deal with the teen saying in a statement what I did was wrong and inexcusable adding and committed to taking advantage of the support systems. I haven't place to become the best and healthier version of myself GM John Dorsey explained the decision to sign him. I just want to let everybody know that we have done extensive research with regards to this case. This player and at the end of it and one thing we did find was he understands. Picks four accountability act that he agreed your sack that he committed his extremely remorseful for his actions by no means from an organizational standpoint is a guarantee of anything as we all know, you know, trust has to be earned in that has to be earned with the Cleveland Browns organization and the community of Cleveland moving forward. So this'll be a day to day thing in terms of earning trust. Now hot will remain on the Commissioner's exempt list while the league investigates the incident, and he has at least one player support in the titans. Johnny smith. Everybody makes mistakes on numbers. Knows guys, you know, second chances. So, you know, this is the best. This breaking news Justin Steelers wide receiver. Antonio Brown has officially requested a trade at according to our own Adam Schefter, four time all pro tweeting just moments ago. Thank you Steeler nation for a big nine years time to move on and forward hashtag new demands. Hey, let's bring in Mary Kay cabbage. She covers the Browns. She's been on the Kareem months story. We'll ask her about this one as well. Mary kay. What do you make of this news involving Antonio Brown? Well, if he's gone from the Pittsburgh Steelers, it certainly changes the landscape in the AFC north, especially if they have no levian bell. No Antonio Brown. I will say one thing. Even though the Cleveland Browns could really use a receiver like Antonio Brown. I do not see the Pittsburgh Steelers. Trading him to the Browns. Okay. Because that would be a lot considering what they have going on right now. Let's talk about Kareem on what's been the reaction from fans and from Browns players. Well, the reaction from fans has been very mixed. You have some people that absolutely hate this. You. You have other people that believe that he deserves a second chance not only in the NFL. But here writing Cleveland with his hometown team. So we're getting it both ways. Okay. And John Dorsey talked about how they've done their due diligence. What have and have they not looked into? While they've talked to he said multitudes of people. I did ask him however, yesterday if he talked to the victim he said he had not had a chance to reach out to the victim. It doesn't necessarily mean that he won't do that. She also has not press charges yet. But he's talked to a lot of people in kareem's life. Of course, no one knows Kareem in the NFL better than John Dorsey. He drafted him with the Kansas City Chiefs. So he spent a lot of time with him. He believes that he's a young man worth saving. So he hasn't had a conversation with the victim in this case. The woman who was punched and kicked. No, he has not. And I do believe it would be a good idea to do that. Get her side of the story. Also talked to some women's groups in town and see what they would like to see happen. Because really the truth of the matter with Kareem right now is he needs to rehabilitate himself in this community. He needs to become an asset to Cleveland, not ally ability you bring up a good point rehabilitating himself. What do the Browns feel that? He needs to do to be worthy of playing for the Browns of getting on that field seeing as though a suspension is likely. Well, first of all John Dorsey says he has a zero tolerance policy. So if anything else happens with Korean in terms of any sort of active violence, he will be gone, and I do think that that's important, but he also has to continue to attend anger management classes, which he's now doing I've also heard he's attending some alcohol sessions, which that may have contributed to some of these incidents of. But in addition to all of those things Kareem hunt needs to go out into the community. He needs to talk to kids. He needs to you know, he had a horrible upbringing here. In Cleveland, what he really needs to do is show other children that he if they can make something of themselves that they can overcome their bad circumstances. He also needs to do things with women's groups and above all he needs to prove that this will never happen. Again. You know, Kareem hunt talked about trying to essentially turn over a new leaf of trying to become a new man of having a program in place to do some of the things you talked about is there. Any more information about that actual program that the Browns, and he seemed to be working out? No, we haven't had a chance to talk to Kareem yet. But I do know that he's already begun to go out into the community here, and do some small things nothing that he wants any attention for and notoriety for at this point. But I think he will be very very active in the community, especially with school children. I think he will go out and and try to talk to them about their own circumstances. And things that they can do. I think he will be very high profile in that way. Okay. Mary kay. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. And let's for more perspective. Let's bring in USA today. Sports. Calmness. This Nancy armor, whose latest opinion piece is titled vanishing Kareem hunt from the NFL forever doesn't do hit them. Or anyone else? Any good want to ask you about that, Nancy? It's very interesting. You've come out very strong against those in sports who commit violence against women. But you right here that you believe is you get a second chance. Why? Well, I I've never been opposed to second chances. And I think the situation here was whether it was the Browns or somebody else somebody was going to sign Kareem hunt. So we can howl and be outraged about this and rail at the the NFL's apocryphal, but at the end of the day somebody who's going to sign him. So then the question becomes what can be done to ensure that there are no more instance with Kareem hunt and his Mary Kay said that he goes out, and he talks to the community and shares his story and works with kids. So that we don't have other cream hunts going forward that I think is what the NFL needs to hold the Browns accountable for and I think the public needs to hold the Browns accountable for that too. You know, it's interesting when he was signed I thought about Reuben foster so many people were upset that he got a chance to get back on the field with the Redskins and how the Redskins handle it. What do you think the differences between Ruben foster and Kareem hunt? Well, I don't think we know yet. But I think that first of all. There seems to be more of a recognition by the Browns that this can't this is not just another signing. And it bothers me that Dorsey had did not talk to the victim though. This was not an intimate partner episode of violence, but still, but they do seem to recognize that they need to provide a support system for Kareem hunt. And I hope that they do that. Because one of the things that people have talked about is that when Reuben foster was Alabama. He did have a support group, and we could see how he behaved there, then he got to the forty Niners and the didn't necessarily have that. And look what happened and the same thing with one when he got to Washington. So it really depends on what the Browns do for Kareem hunt. You know, it makes me wonder is there a point with athletes committing violence against others where you say, you know, what this is not something this person should be able to do again, and your mind is there is there. Some sort of point some bright line approach to that. Yeah. I mean, if you know if we're talking if somebody has committed murder committed. Yes. I do think that there are lines. But I don't know that you can necessarily have a hard and fast fast rule, and the thing is too. And I pointed this out McCollum, just not signing. Kareem hunt doesn't make the problem. Go away. Somebody in some part of society is going to have to deal with it. And at least now with the NFL. You have an incentive for him to behave better to get the help that he needs to break the cycle of violence will that happen or not? I don't know. We'll see. But and that's the thing the NFL and the public needs to hold him and the Browns accountable. What do you think the NFL's role is in all of this? Well, first of all, we will see what happens in terms of suspension as Mary Kay mentioned cream is still on the Commissioner's exempt list. And Roger Goodell said last week at the Super Bowl that they were nearing the end of their investigation a suspension is all but certain, but I think the NFL needs to tell teams listen, this is not we're not gonna. And continue to let this be a free for all that if you sign a guy who is has prior acts of bad behavior, and does something again, there's going to be a punishment. I suggested a third or fourth round draft pick or losing your revenue from a home game something that is going to make these owners, not treat episodes of violence as no big deal because that's what we've seen so far. Okay. One quick thing. A couple of seconds left. What do you think about the Tonio Brown news? I'm not surprised just given how things had seem to to break down. But the question is going to be you know, who's who's gonna take him on it? And what are the Steelers going to be willing to or what are they going to demand to in exchange for him? And we'll see if that if that price is going to be too high for some people to pay shall see Nancy. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. Onto the NBA where it seems very little could be done to stop teams from tanking these days. Remember those anti tanking rules the league pass before last season. One of the main changes the top three teams have equal odds for the number one pick AK as I on picking rights supposedly to disincentivize teams from going all in on the tank. The result though, teams hone acknowledge it some half dozen teams seemingly are doing some form of tanking to improve their lottery arts. So it's welcome in ESPN bay reporter, Brian Windhorst to talk about this. Also, the host of the hoop collective podcast so Bryant we had these new rules to prevent against tanking. And it seems like they're not doing anything. Why is that? Well, it was a couple of different reasons. Why teams tank obviously, what we all pay attention to is taking for the top pick. And this year the top pick is a very exciting player. So you certainly see a handful of teams three or four at least clearly going to try to get that number one pick. But there's other reasons to tank Ryan and one of them is to just keep your draft pick. We've seen this year after year it's not necessarily to get the top two or three but to give given the top five or to get in the top seven of the top ten. We saw the Golden State Warriors cake blatantly to get the draft pick. They became Harrison Barnes one year, for example to get in the top seven the Lakers several years in a row only kept their pick. If it was in the top three, and they clearly or tanking this year we have four teams that potentially could keep their draft pick. If they fall under a certain level. The Cavs the Mavericks, the clippers and the grizzlies and all of them have made trades recently that you could argue have weakened their teams. Now, they wouldn't necessarily come out here and saying they were. Tanking, but you watch their actions and you start to wonder, so it's a it's a myriad number of reasons. And it's a multi level issue at the end of the day. If you're the Knicks or you're the balls or you're the Cavs. You're not going to necessarily be able to improve dramatically through free agency. Although the Knicks harbor big hopes the best way is to get Zion. Williamson and if you're near the bottom it even at fifteen percent instead of twenty five percent, which is the difference now at the very bottom in winning the lottery, it's still a lot of sense to go for was this what the NBA had in mind, though, when they decided to change the rules. I think the NBA knew that this was not going to be a panacea. And there were still a bunch of teams that weren't sure about it. The Oklahoma City thunder lead a charge to try to get the measure defeated because they thought it was a loss for small market teams. Who will never have the opportunity to to go for it in free agency. This was maybe a half measure, you could say it wasn't designed to completely eradicate it. It was designed to minimize it. We're in the first year, I guess over the coming years, we'll have to watch and decide whether it actually does anything yet. And we'll have to see if the NBA does anything about it or has any changes? Now switching gears because we just can't seem to get enough of Anthony Davis. You actually wrote a column on ESPN dot com about the Lakers chances. What do they need to do differently to get back in the sweepstakes? If they decide to go after him this summer. Iran. I think the Lakers are hurting right now we saw Magic Johnson say over the weekend that he didn't think that the pelicans acted in good faith, but in all honesty, the Lakers have to make a pretty big decision. They have to decide whether they want Anthony Davis or not they want to continue to try to get him or not a magic set over the weekend that the team didn't want to change its plans and wanted to chase a free agents. But if they sign a free agent this year, even if it's not one of the highest level free agents, even sort of a second level free agent. They're gonna take themselves almost certainly out of the chance to sign Anthony Davis in twenty twenty and let's say tear the team apart. And so if the pelicans don't want what the Lakers have on their roster now, and they very clearly sent that message that they don't the Lakers needs. It may need to spend the spring after they're done with this season looking at trading their players for players at the pelicans do want maybe making looking at three team deals, and that's something that didn't happen and these the Goshi nations, and maybe the pelicans aren't interested in doing business with them. Right now, but maybe that'll change in the spring. If the situation changes, and we don't even know who's going to be making the decisions for the pelicans. So this Anthony Davis situation with the Lakers is not over the emotions are raw right now. But getting at the Lakers is still something that's out there if the Lakers choose to pursue it. Second chance we'll see how that goes Brian. Thank you. Well, coming up with those ten year deals for Harper Machado, looking less likely. We'll talk to a man who doled out one of those big paydays.

Welcome back developing story involving a former Duke star former NBA player Corey McGinty has been identified as the former Duke player accused of rape by a woman who has also made similar allegations against Virginia Lieutenant governor just in Fairfax, the New York Times setting childhood friend of the accuser, Meredith, Watson and social media messages Watson exchange with another friend that say a fourteen the fourteen year NBA veteran raped her twenty years ago at Duke, and that school officials did not pursue Watson's claim at the time now for its part. A spokesman for Duke says the school is in the process of gathering information about the policies and procedures in place at the time of the alleged incident, and whether they were followed but getting has denied the claims in a statement writing I have never sexually assaulted anyone in my life. And I completely and categorically deny any such charge. But Getty was removed from last night's clippers television broadcast on Fox Sports west with the network saying they are looking into the matter. It's a major story in the major leagues. They're big league free agent signing failed with pitchers and catchers from twenty two teams reporting to spring training by tomorrow, there appears to be little movement on the free agent front talking about the big name ones. Like guys like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado or Dallas kaikal Craig kimbrel. And this is not lost on the growing number of players voicing objections. To baseball's free agency system yesterday. Justin Verlander tweeted, one hundred or so free agents unsigned system is broken. They blame rebuilding, but that's Bs. You're telling me, you couldn't sign Bryce or Manny for ten years and go from there seems like a good place to start a rebuild to me. And Evan longoria. Weighing in on Instagram calling the situation a shame adding as fans why should value for your team? Even be a consideration. It's not your money. It's money that players have worked their whole lives to get to that level to be deserving of bottom line fans should always want the best players and product on the field for their team and John. Pitcher, Jeff, some Marga floated the idea of moving up arbitration a year earlier to get players to free agency. Sooner adding striking is the last thing you want to do, but you have to be willing to do it. But I think there are other things before then that can get the ball going the right way all this despite record revenues for major league baseball at ten point three billion in two thousand eighteen yet players seeing their second lowest cut as a percentage of revenues since two thousand six according to Forbes. So let's bring in David Samson who while president of the Marlins signed Giancarlo Stanton to a record three hundred and twenty five million dollar deal. David great to have you with us. So that kind of deals not going to happen anymore. I don't think so. But certainly Harper Machado or maybe told by their agents that they'd get to beat STAN I just don't see it happening right now with the way the market is playing out. So it was that deal wrong with the time. No, not at all. We wanted. Stand to be the cornerstone of the franchise and it worked out with the six year opt out that he could use after six years and remember not one of the years got him to as a free agent the level where even Mike trout was a free agent. So I think that deal does work out because Stanton is a different special type of player. But did that deal affect the way teams do deals now? Are they looking at that saying because of that deal and the things that happened from it? Well, now, we're not signing those long term deals anymore. No, I think you'd have to look at maybe album pool halls or Jason Heyward or you Darvish or some of the other players who simply are not working out with these long term deals. Remember, if you forget the names just put player a and player b next to each other and put their value their wins above replacement any stat you want analytic or otherwise it's going to be very hard to discern a player who makes one million and a player who makes thirty million. And that's what owners are doing. They're not looking at names anymore. They're looking at value. Okay. So you tweeted recently in response to some of the folks out there who were tweeting. There is a problem that there is a problem then will not be fixed by players systematically tweeting about the broken system. The reality is players in agents have to adjust to the new to a new reality. So in your mind. What is that new reality? They need to adjust to. Well, the new reality is simple, which is right now the players have unrealistic expectations about what they're worth is at the top level. The days of thirty to forty million dollar players that Zach rankings of the world, those just those contracts don't work. They don't make sense. So what the players are doing. And I get it. They're taking their opportunity to voice their problems. But it's really not falling on on. It is falling on deaf ears because how can you comprehend the difference between twenty million thirty million forty million what these players in agents have to know is that with analytics younger player should get paid more. I'm good with what Jeffs emerges said, let's go a step further. How about free agency after one year? We would love it as an industry to let players be free. It really. You're no problem because then you're paying for performance. And that's what should be the case. Wow. So you think owners would actually go for something like that try to move it up? Try to have that kind of flexibility. I think if I had to go get Twenty-three votes back in the day that I could try to do that. Because right now, so many owners have been burned by long-term deals that haven't worked let players get paid for their performance. So yellow Christian yelich has been tweeting about you you guys going back and forth before and he did he had the feeling that you're sort of anti player in all of this. He tweeted a lot of this. But what do you say to that? Well, I first of all Christian, and I were texting on the side and tweeting on the side doing both at the same time. He's a great guy, and he's got a contract that he would say he's being underpaid right now. And I would say that he guaranteed life changing money for himself. And now he can go get more when this contract's up as far as I'm concerned. It's not rhetoric. It's not anti player. I'm not anti player at all the players are the product without players. There is no baseball forget replacement players you need the best in the world. But you have to manage their expectations about what they should and could be paid in a free market. It's a very tough thing to do when players feel like they've been playing all this time for the big pay day. And it's not happening. David so good to talk to you. Thank you. We'll be right back. Let me tell you without Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete played since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice. Why some nights he even slept in his hockey skates? Pete practiced and practiced until one day when he was forty seven Pete realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then he heard how DIKO proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out. Sportscenter six PM after PTI keeping Kevin they're going to go inside the Browns decision to sign Kareem hunt. Plus what's going on with the Celtics again? And why dukes been so good on the road? Sportscenter at six on ESPN and the app and then tonight Super Tuesday double header number five Kentucky hosting number nineteen LSU at Rupp arena at seven then big one like this, right? Number two Duke taking on number sixteen Louisville. Both games are live on the ESPN app. So where we'll Antonio go. If the Steelers decide to deal him, we may never know. But I'm sure the NFL live through something to say about that Suzy kolber and NFL live is coming up next. Message and data rates may apply to become okay for men to be Lazier softer fatter.

"My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom my first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance good. It's it's it's like a cigarette. But not I don't miss smoking. At all. Like, I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette. Asher lingering odor. Make the switch and J U L dot com slash outside. Warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine is an addictive chemical. The fallout from the knee injury. That was or was it continues round went radio silent to out the weekend. Four to get to a point where he's held out a visiting a must win. It's been something that's happened throughout the year. A going to speculate on praise just know that is going to be address. Philly has gone foreign one this season with Nick foles the offense and the team is playing better with him. The starter. He's all about winning. And he's all about the teams that win teasing. I'm trying to teach that veteran save in Daboh trilogy. Clearly three best teams misses the way. It should be anybody that has Petillo this matchup. Why would you get tired of excellent? What you see change your perception of abbey sporting event. Get this. Welcome back outside the lines on Ryan Smith. He's got twenty more. Touchdown catches at one hundred and twenty more total receptions than any other NFL receiver over the last six seasons, but Willie be a Steeler next year. Antonio brown. Sagas are big stories today. A macro to speculate on trays and things of that nature. We haven't formally received the request in that regard. So I'm not gonna speculate seems like everyone else is given what's been happening between the team and star white out Antonio Brown. Head coach Mike Tomlin attempting to stem controversy from Brown's allegedly getting into it with a teammate and subsequent practice. No-shows? They didn't being sidelined for the team season. Finale made news for what he didn't say an answering the question did Brown quit on the team. You know, you can describe it in whatever ways you want to describe it. But there was a lack of communication there. The bottom line is that we're playing significant game. He didn't do a good enough job of communicating or being available in hours leading up to that performance. And since yesterday's news conference Brown has been putting himself out there in more ways than one here. He is and this video with James Harrison promising his own tell presser that never materialized, but what did. This appearance as a hippo on the new FOX show, the mask singer singing what else Bobby Brown's my prerogative? That was obviously taped weeks if not longer ago, but the timing is interesting Dominic Foxworth writer for the undefeated and former NFL player joins us. All right. So dominate. There's what the rumor mill says about him possibly being traded in. What's fact, he cost twenty million against the cap if they trade him, so should they? Yeah. I don't think. Well, first of all, I think the cap numbers a little different. I know that that's the dead money. But I think that's assuming if they if he makes it to his salary. I make from what I understand that the cap if they trade him before his roster bonus which is in early March they can get about recoup about fifteen million of that that they don't have to pay roster bonus. They don't have to pay in salary. But I do think it's still a hit on the field for them. But if there's any team that I think is capable of withstanding hit. It's definitely the Steelers. They seem to be kind of like a wide receiver factory where every couple of years they bring out a new all pro wide receiver, and they. Have experienced in having a dealing with a major hole in Iraq. We saw what happened with Levy on bell. They managed to do just fine. It seemed at least for most of the season offensively despite the fact that they were without the third be in that three in the big been Antonio Brown on bell trio. So I think the Steelers are capable of doing it in. There is something to be said for addition by subtraction. I think if he is I'm not in that locker room, and I'm certainly not going to jump out here. And pretend like I know how bad Antonio Brown is for that locker room. But if Mike Tomlin and the rest of the organization believes that his presence is a detriment and to the mentality of that team. I don't think that there is any amount of touchdowns that can make up for that. So on the flip side, Mike Tomlin coach here. And I think there is this impression that you got the Browns situation you have the Levy on bell situation. Something's going on with that environment. What do you make of that impression? I think it's a fair impression. There's certainly something going on. And this is not happening while it does happen in lots of locker rooms, it's not happening in every lock them right now. I don't know. I think it depends on it's kind of a bit of a war shock test. When you how you feel about? Mike Tomlin because I think you can look at this and say, wow, Mike Tomlin has done an amazing job kind of making this team as competitive as it's been over the past several years one Super Bowl. I think he's one twenty six and or one twenty five and sixty six has a record one of the best in the league. He's been to two and one Super Bowl, you could say, wow, it's amazing that he's done this in a situation where you can look at it and say man, Mike Tomlin's really lost control of his team. I think it's fair probably two two draw either conclusion based on the information that we have I'm going to look at a guy who's been to Super Bowls in one one Super Bowl and say we should give him the benefit of his out. He's earned it. Okay. So you give them the benefit of the doubt. But I have to ask this everybody always talks about having the players coach. And how great that is. And obviously he's got that reputation as well. But is it possible that maybe when when in this role as a player coach that things have become a little bit too lax? I think it's certainly possible. I don't necessarily think it's true. I don't know that we have a lot of evidence to support that. I think what happened here in this in this situation is is kind of a one off. And we could look at what happened in in. Minnesota would with feeling and cousins yelling at each player's emotions run high. I'm a I'm a player I've been in locker rooms where we had to Pro Bowl players come to a fistfight before. And we were still just fine. The next day like that happens in football. I think Antonio Brown's personality may be one standard deviation away from the main as far as most players NFL. But generally those locker rooms a tough situations and being able to manage those. Locker rooms requires coaches to make some judgement. Call sometimes they pay off. Sometimes they backfire would say over the long run for Mike Tomlin a judgment calls that he's made have paid off. And I think most theaters fans would agree. Okay. We'll see if you can make the right judgment call with Antonio Brown. But of course, takes two to Tango to make this right? Dominic. Thank you so much. No problem. Thank you. Now onto teams actually in the NFL playoffs of the eight teams this weekend vying to advance to hope to do so with signal callers who were backups just weeks ago in Baltimore. Lamar Jackson is six and one since taking over for then injured. But now healthy Joe flacco he'll be the youngest quarterback in NFL history to start a playoff game at twenty one years old when the ravens take on the chargers on Sunday turning twenty two the day after the game. Now in talking about what he wants for the game. He was excited like a kid on Christmas that we're. That we're. I can taste like thanksgiving. Sweet potato pie. Definitely. I'm trying to taste that veteran from our birthday Monday. A quarterback. Switch is just the opposite. In Philly veteran, Nick foles taking up the mantle for injured. Young star Carson Wentz leading the eagles back to the playoffs. Now falls is a free agent after the season. And once we'll be looking for a new deal. But foles in talking about is playoff experience responded as a level-headed veteran quarterback would it's like I've been talking about just focusing on the Moines today, the most important thing is Wednesday. So that's the thing. I learned is you know, it can you can make as big as you want it or you can make it a small, and I choose to make it smaller. So I can just hone in on what I gotta focus on today. Gotta love the Mark Jackson like kidney, candy store and NFL analyst joins me. Now, love them. Right. Talk about the quarterback quandary that the eagles and ravens have. Okay. So in Baltimore, you've got this youngster Jackson taken over for flacco, wet risks. Do you think there are for the ravens when they put up young guy like Jackson with a Super Bowl went around the bend? None. There are no risk. Because you've you look at it. If you're a fifty fifty two guys in locker room of the fifty two the three you're sitting here, you're watching Lamar Jackson play lights out in your six and one you're going to rally behind that guy. And I think that's the situation right now. We're looking at a quarterback who's carried this team changed everything not only on the opposite side of the ball. But deep until the entire mentality of this team has changed since Lamar Jackson took the hell if you're down twenty four to nothing in the second quarter and a playoff game. And you got flacco on the bench who's won a Super Bowl. You gotta let them sit there. No. I think you can utilize guy like Joe flacco up you're down. But we haven't seen. That we haven't seen that presence of that. We've seen this team play legitimate football can't City Chiefs where they got into it back and forth. They went back and love. Lamar Jackson hill does own. It took Patrick Mahomes to convert or or down to win that put ballgame. He's played against up rivers. He's played against great quarterbacks in the last six seven weeks, and he's held his own. I don't think they get down especially with that. They don't get down. I don't think he was going to. I don't think we're going to see Joe flacco the remainder of the season. I'll just put it to you that right? The same next season. No plant, not not not as a Baltimore raven. I I think the changing of the guard has come. It's Lamar Jackson. So speaking to change in the guard. And I know Philly fans are gonna wonder what's going on here. You got foles who's lead them to glory. Now back again in the playoffs. You got Wednesday young star. They got a choice to make at the end of the season. So what do you think they do with these two quarterbacks? I know I'm jumping ahead. What I listen. I think this week will vote. No, we can't Pam Bo. We're gonna find out a lot this week. Philadelphia. Eagles are traveling to the Chicago Bears. There bears defense has been a lights out all season long lit by Khalil Mack. If Nick foles goes roles in two Sakado and wins that ballgame we got a controversy on our hand. We simply put because we've seen this same story last year. We saw Nick Boles take this same team at the end of the season in go on a winning went rampage and go in and win the Super Bowl. Nick Boles makes this team better offense. We didn't hear about Alcyone Jeffrey all season long until Nick foles came in Aguiar disappeared a lot. We we didn't see the weapons that they had. We knew Zach was there all season long exact ROY breaks, the all time tied in go with a young guy that gives one at the number two pick on who's been so good for you. All. And that's again, we're getting in front of ourselves right now. It's hard for me to go got in Carson Wentz. Who's twenty six years old? But right now, it's obvious that Nick Boles makes this football team, much better football. Let me ask you another question. NFL ratings NFL doesn't get a lot of credit for what they do. Right. But the NFL ratings are five percent this year. That's big when you consider the TV ratings in general or down. You're talking about many. If not most of the top fifty things that you've seen on TV have been NFL games. What do you attribute the gains to look at offense? Great almost Patrick Mahomes lit up this year. You saw the excitement around that Baker Mayfield a young rookie company. I think the youth movement at the quarterback position has really elevated the ratings and people are just tuning in. My kids are coming up. Eighteen nineteen twenty years old are tuning in to watch Baker Mayfield tuning in to watch those Patrick Mahomes and a lot of that fantasy as well. The big points the highlights that's what they want to see. And I think that's what we're seeing right now, we're seeing a youth movement at the quarterback position. I think we're going to see the. F L P R machine. Doing a lot with me feeling off-season. Why not doing great? You're doing great. As always, my friend. Good. All right. Here's more stuff. That matters. The state of Florida has dropped its domestic violence case against Redskins. Linebacker Ruben foster misdemeanor charge for November twenty four incident involving fosters girlfriend. Eliza NS led to foster being way by the forty Niners. He was subsequently claimed by Washington, but was promptly placed on the Commissioner's exempt list. This is the second time that charges against foster have been dropped for an incident involving NS. Four former pro athletes were among the freshmen sworn in today as part of the one hundred sixteen congress of the United States or enemy fighter cherise, David's represents Kansas. Minnesota's Pete stalbur played left wing for the Detroit. Redwings Collin Allred from Texas played four seasons with the titans while Ohio's Anthony Gonzales spent five years with the colts and expect Alto bet skin to be strong for the NHL stretch run. But deciding to sit out the NHL all star game and San Jose NHL's leading goal score earns an extended ten day rest but MRs just one regular season game poured into NHL rules players who choose to miss the midseason showcase or automatically suspended for either the game before or after the all star break. Boys. One of the best coaches in college football, but does Davos we know how to park a car the moment dabbles life last before is is coming up. If you're a smoker, you know, switching isn't easy.

Switch and be satisfied. Yes. You can do both. Warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine is an addictive chemical. Tell me a story. Take one. Hi, I'm Davos Sweeney. And I'm going to tell you a story. Summer of eighty nine mongo was to try to make enough money. Hopefully by call to go back to school. Nissan, Sentra five-speed, look like little BMW. It was awesome. And I literally have the car about I know mont-. So this particular time me and a friend of mine named Alex. We'd go park at my friend's house had money son central get out park second year turnaround. And as I'm walking back to his truck. Alex starts going. And he's pointing at me through the truck, and I turn around in my car is just starting to kind of barely creep get in front of the call, and I'm trying to think I can maybe stop the momentum and it won't stop. And I mean, I'm sliding sliding, and it just goes straight down like cliff my whole life flash in front of me here. I dive the way flipping and going through Briars I look up and the car is just tilting over and it's like in slow motion. And it goes over. Crashes down the Hugh and tvos into a tree Alex comes run, and he's coin Sweeney. Splitting. It was just this moment of. Disbelief. You know, here's my brand new car I've made like one payment on it. I can't believe he calls a tow truck to get it lit up out of the bottom of their woods there. I remember calling. My dad telling him what happened and turns out he'd let the insurance lapse. So I got no insurance three plus thousand dollars worth of damage. So that car sat there till literally like the next year because I didn't have the money to get it out so made payments car that I didn't have. But eventually got it back. It was the best looking Bondo. Nissan, Sentra you've ever seen smelt pretty new still those light getting a new car all over again two years in a row. That was my first car great moments. And then also some tough too. We're just four days away from Davos weenies. Clemson Tigers facing off against Nick Sabin in Alabama the third time in the last four years. These teams will face off in the title game, and what has to be a match made in college football heaven. But as they say, not all that glitters is gold, especially when you talk about ticket sales. According to Yahoo sports is Dan Wetzel. The secondary market for ticket sales for getting into the game at Levi's stadium in Santa Clara where at one hundred and fifty Tuesday on stubhub that's less than ten percent of last year's peak price average ticket prices at seek last year for the Alabama Georgia final in Atlanta at gametime over three thousand and this year right now a thousand forty three and some believe possibly lowered gametime TV ratings for the playoff in general or down thirty six million viewers for the semi-final games this year compared to forty eight million in two thousand seventeen and all this in a matchup clearly featuring college football's best with a chance of seeing empty seats is now a distinct possible. Ability. Then wetzel. Yahoo sports. National columnists noted the national title game ticket price plummet he joins us now. So, Dan, what are the two factors? You attribute most to this ticket drop. Well, clearly location games in Santa Clara, California up by in the bay area. The two teams are in the south twenty six hundred mile drive, very expensive flights very expensive hotel, and it takes place on a Monday night. Right. When work is back in session, schools back in session hard to get that time off the other part is just familiarity. This isn't rally your dad or family or get your your college friends together and make one trip to the title game. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. These guys are here. Every year is a pretty good chance. It's Alabama Clemson next year that game is in New Orleans. You just wait. It's nice easier drive. So that's really the two factors. But this is sort of an instinct classic third time in the last four years they face off. And I'm sure that one of the thoughts going into California was hey, let's spread the game around. Let's try to get some national interest. Just like the NFL has in their product when they have the Super Bowl all of country. It is. Is that the right model for college football? Well, it's kind of a catch twenty two you do this. And nobody comes. The bay area's not a college football area when they had the Super Bowl are few years ago. Denver and Carolina the money that is in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco drove the ticket prices to a then record high. So they're football fans there there's not into college football. But it's tough this this event lacks Pac twelve teams the last few years not made it no big ten teams things like that have kind of made this feel a little bit like, it's a southern invitational. As much as a national championship the way other NCAA titles are that's the tough one though. Because if your college football, you're saying, look, I mean. Yeah. Alabama and Clemson great. But I don't know if the game is going to be there next year if it's somebody else, then we're parking the game in the south all the time. Isn't that a problem for them? Absolutely. Again. What are you going to do? I mean, there's no denying these are the two best teams and so- Alabama and Clemson have earned the right to be here and trying to rig that to try to be more popular wouldn't be wouldn't be the right idea. Low ticket prices aren't necessarily a bad idea. Either. Maybe some people get to go the game that normally wouldn't because you can get in for a hundred and thirty one hundred twenty bucks right now. But what college football has not been able to do with this playoff over the last five years is true. We turn it self into a national sport. When you have an area of the country, like northern California, basically yawning and saying we're not interested that doesn't show that this has captured the imagination of the country the way, I think they thought when they designed this playoff how much do you think the bowl system impacts all of this? Well, the bowl system gets in the way of certain things in that the semi finals or the title game aren't played on January first except once every three years because the Rose Bowl in the sugarbowl aren't going to give up their time slot. So you play the semi finals on a Saturday between not an ideal time yet low ratings in part because of the blowout nature of these games. The bulls get in the way, they're trying to wrap this playoff around an existing bowl system. There's all sorts of special interest. There's outside forces college football continues to outsource its most profitable product these games to these private bowls. The NFL the AFC championship game. The NFC championship game the Super Bowl they control at all. And they don't have third operatives or worry about the tourism industry of some of these places or any other things it's all about how do we maximize it for the fans the players and the bottom wants to grade which what ball doesn't do that is a great point you want to see those games on new year. But that playoff couple of days. Earlier is very complicating for college football, Dan. Thank you so much. Appreciate the time. Thanks, Ron well coming up Steph. Curry is throwing a party for fans in Oakland, left out one small detail. That's next. Technology truth brought to you by Geico. Truth. You will certainly send any text about your supervisor to your supervisor. What's Janet's fangs? Did she lose that? We'd worker. Oh and Sint, wait. No, no, no, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something go fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Sportscenter at six PM eastern after PTI with Keith Olbermann. Jay, harris. They gonna look at how the raptors can convince to stay in the great white north. Plus, my Andrew luck should be among the NFL's elite once again, and how Davos Sweeney turned Clemson into a national powerhouse in just ten years yet that fast sportscenter six eastern on ESPN and the ESPN app and also at six PM eastern over on ESPN two we're going to have the twelfth annual Under Armour all American game with some of the top high school football players in the country AJ greenhouse on Jeffrey Julio Jones Jarvis Landry.

So the splash brother wanted to show some gratitude to the fans with this announcement to his twenty three million Instagram followers on Tuesday when it was everybody. Happy new year. Hope you enjoyed yourself to the fullest bringing into nineteen makes you stop by curry pop up store downtown Oakland. Get you your free tickets to the event. Oh, yeah. Parkway and for free, but wait he forgot to mention the stores closed the next day. So dozens of fans showed up some getting there as early as three AM waiting in line for their party tickets. You. Ouch. We'll Steph got word of this and tweeted out. Wow, y'all wild for this one. How about telling people when to come by? Instead of the click bait Oakland fans just can't win these days. The raiders are gone the warriors and Steph going to be playing in San Francisco next season. Even oaktown native marshawn Lynch showed up the city council in his flipflop socks in a backpack locker room style to try to tell people to please stop the bleeding. Oh, yeah. Well, Oakland fans have lost so much hopefully, not those as but one thing they do have. I have to say stars that care because even though we now know you gotta watch to make sure you get those details right on the Graham. At least you have a star that's willing to give back for what you gave to him. Thanks steph. I'm sure they say keep it right here. NFL?

So I felt like Scott you deserved a signed picture of a guy that actually could get into Princeton or maybe a sign football card of a guy that again also actually got admitted to the top school in the country didn't have to settle for a safety school like Harvard, or maybe even a press pass from guy that for the third time was able to go to the number one institution of higher learning and the United States as opposed to. A school that some people go to up in Boston. So anyway, Scott, thank you for the Facebook message. I'm busting your chops. Of course, I almost went to Harvard.

But I appreciate those of you guys that do stuff that helped Brian I out and help spread the word or help to support our sponsors. It really goes a long way for us. So I'm going to reward somebody that does those things each and every week, by the way, I forgot to mention this bright yesterday or Thursday. But I went on Andrews podcast this week for the first time, it's kind of funny. I never even thought about or realized that I had not as of yet been on Andrews podcast the business of sports. I never. I never thought of it. I just hadn't thought of it. So Andrew wanted me on. And it was really weird. I gotta tell you. It was I have been interviewing Andrew for what Bri like five six years every week. I talked to him. So for him to be interviewing me and him to be asking me questions. It was kind of cool and very very different. So encourage you to check out business of sports this week with Andrew I was on for like, thirty minutes. Thirty two minutes. I think Andrew was just firing questions at me about the year and stuff. It was a lot of fun. So if you haven't already checked out, Andrew brands, businesses sports. Yeah. Absolutely should. And definitely check it out this week because your boy is on it for thirty minutes. Just him asking me questions about the season and about the state of things in the NFL. It was pretty cool. Tuck takes time. Good morning. Here's what we're gonna do today. We're going to get a little crazy change things up. We'll start with tuck steaks and then afterwards do the big show. I take though pro football hall of fame announced their fifteen finalists for the class of twenty thousand nine hundred. Brian. I feel like you didn't I feel like it was. Like, your your effort there to say, we're going to get a little crazy get wild here and do tuck steaks and then big show. I felt like. Like, you feel like that was your best effort. I feel like that was three you definitely tried to. But I feel like that was three quarters of what you could have done. Maybe even just half of what you could have done to sell that. And your point is what I'm just asking on your meter in terms of being able to sell like dudes were getting a little crazy today. We're going to do the tuck stakes before the big show like that would be how I would do it, obviously you and I have different personalities, but I just want to know like on a scale of one to ten and your ability to really like cell that we're getting wild and crazy by doing the tuck stakes before the big show where would that have been in a scale one to ten for what you are capable of as a human being. I thought I got the point across and I didn't need to go all crazy on you. So I'm happy with my performance scale one to ten Bri. Go with a seven. Yeah. I think that's probably fair. It's about right? And by the way, I kind of liked your second. Crazy right there. When you just said, I need to get a little crazy with it. That was that was similar that was like a seven or eight, but that that seemed a little more genuine, the more authentic. Anyway, I just curious good work Bri, very where I I can live with a seven. I can I can live with a seven on the Brian one to ten scale. So the hall of fame finalists. It's a lot of familiar names for sure to what it was a year ago here they are Steve atwater. These are the modern era finals, so these aren't the contributors like Pat bolan and Gil Brandt, these are the modern era finalists. You got Steve out. Water champ Bailey. Tony bacilli Isaac. Bruce. Don coryell Allen fan IKA Tom floor. Tony Gonzalez Steve Hutchinson. Edgerrin James tied law. John Lynch, Kevin y Ed Reed Richard Seymour. It's really interesting because we are now at the point where like almost all of those guys are guys I played against or with. So champ Bailey was a teammate. Title I played against but never was teammate played against John. Lynch. Seymour was a teammate played against Ed Reed. Certainly. And then the alignment, obviously, we're in the league at the same time as me as was consolidation Isaac. Bruce twenty percent he was like the year. We only overlap for like one year and then at waters the guy that's before my time out of this group. So we'll see people say that Gonzalez is a virtual lock. I think that's probably the case. You know? I think some people consider him to be the best tight end of all time. I think Tony probably gets in Ed Reed. I think a lot of people think he's the best safety over the last thirty years. I would agree with I I'm Ed Reed guy over Paula Malo. So I think he gets in. And maybe even I dunno next Tuesday. Maybe we'll have a guest or maybe I'll just. Maybe I'll just break down the hall of fame finalists. So I'll have to figure that part of it out. I think champ Ellie twelve pro bowls. I mean, twelve pro bowls. Unbelievable. Still can't believe the Redskins made that trade, by the way, just an insane trait. And I've told you guys before so maybe I'll go by guy by guy, and maybe even tell you who I would pick next week. But the last point I'll make just today is that Richard Seymour. I've told you guys this before and maybe I'll explain next week. Why he is the best defensive lineman. I ever played against and I played several guys that are already in the hall of fame. And now Bruce Smith wasn't as prime or anything when I played against Bruce. But Richard Seymour who was in his prime was just a tremendous tremendous player. I mean, really really good. But I don't think he has the stats that will that will enable him to get in now. Or maybe anytime, I really I just don't know. I don't know if his dad's will let them get. Anytime because in a three four defense in New England, you're really playing the run for the first two seconds. So it makes it really hard to rack up big sack numbers. Just because of the nature of that defense. You're not just penetrating you're really playing into playing off of the offensive lineman in front of you. So that's my little spiel on the fifteen finalists for the class of two thousand nineteen. So yeah, let's keep it rolling. Interesting topic for engine IX week could be or will be the NFL's I ever casino sponsorship. They've signed a deal with Caesar's. Right. But what's interesting about this Bri is this has nothing to do with gambling or sports betting? They made it very clear. These partnerships are for the casino category. Only and do not include sports betting daily fantasy or hotels resorts. So I think it's like for thirty million dollars. Caesar's will provide unique experiences for NFL fans by engaging. It's casino properties. Celebrity chefs premier music artists and a wide range of entertainers the first ever official casino sponsor of the NFL. I dunno Bri. You're pretty knowledgeable about stuff like this. So what does that really mean for Caesar? I guess they can just advertise themselves then as the official casino sponsor of the NFL. And I'm sure even though it's not for the sports betting category. They're hoping that that sort of. That that being able to say that are the official casino of the NFL that that has residual effect on sports betting, even though it's not official. Don't you think? That is my understanding. Yes. And obviously Andrew will be the better person to answer that when we talked to him next week. Right. So what's the advantage of saying that you're the the official anything of the NFL is just a associating yourself with that brand? And I don't know does because they still have to pay for any advertising. Right. Sure. Just basically paying for for that to be able to say that. Yeah. And to be able to use the logo. Doozy NFL shield. Doesn't official sponsor. That's a good point. So it's able to have the shield which is like, oh, the NFL says, it's okay. The NFL supports Caesar's the NFL. I got it. I think that stuff's really interesting. Like, I would love to talk to somebody at Caesars and say. Okay. Let's say you're spending thirty million dollars. Tell me how you're getting the return on that investment. Like, give me the specific ways in which you feel like that's going to give you the return. You're looking for. And maybe I mean, they already Bri get a lot of pub just from being the first official casino sponsor, this was a major topic on social media yesterday. And a lot of people talking about it like even just that. Even just the announcement itself. They get a lot of free publicity, not free because they had to pay for that. But they get a lot of publicity out of it. Jeez. Three other pieces of information before we get to the wild card games include the bills firing special teams coach, Danny Crossman. The domestic battery case against Redskins. Linebacker Ruben foster is being dropped and Texans wide receiver dandruff Hopkins donating his playoff check to the family of slain seven year old in Houston. So three very different topics as for the bills firings special teams coach, Danny Crossman. I think that that is three street days that the bills have fired insistent coach that's an interesting way to do it rather than firing. And maybe I'm wrong. But rather than firing guys on three different days rather than firing all three guys in the same day that apparently, you know, he's done it three straight days. Can you imagine being a bills assistant coach walking into the facility? Today. Like, okay. So three straight days somebody's gotten fired. All right. Maybe he's my lucky day. And I don't know what. The logic would be for doing it on three different days. I don't know how McDermott feels maybe he just needed a little more time to make the decision. Maybe you needed to see you know, what it is. You know, what it is? I just decided it's probably maybe I'm wrong. It's probably wanting to see. What else is out there? And who he might be able to get to replace them. Right. Like, he probably wants to make sure he's got a guy in his back pocket to be the special teams coordinator before you fired Danny Crossman. That's probably the logic of why he did on three separate days. But yeah, I'd be a little nervous walking into that building. Today. If I were a bills assistant coach, and then the domestic battery charges against Reuben foster being dropped remember this was the third arrest for him in twenty teen and the second domestic battery arrest same woman. I believe this one was in Tampa when they were in town to play the bucks and the Niners released them right away. The Redskins ended up claiming him on waivers and. Paid him for the rest of the year while he was on the Commissioner's exempt list, which by the way, he still on and the Redskins paid them. So that they had is right for next year. I think in case this got dropped. And in case, you know, he went off the Commissioner's exempt and area Bill to have them on their team next year. So that was the calculated risk that the Redskins took that probably has a much better chance of paying off. Now. Now that the domestic battery charges against them have been dropped. I never I don't know that much about the legal process. So I don't know how much of that was it's being dropped. Because. The woman didn't want to press charges or wasn't cooperating or there wasn't enough evidence. Or what I don't know any of those. I don't any of that. I do know though, something's wrong. If you've been arrested three times in a year, and the NFL is going to investigate what tax going on there before he gets a chance to play as for de'andre Hopkins. Good for him. I mean, incredibly terrible awful story of somebody in Houston shot up a car. I don't know. Why don't know what the motive was? But there was a seven year old girl in the car who died who lost her life, which is the worst thing I can imagine. And they haven't caught a guy yet, which should be priority. One is to catch that guy as soon as possible because that's awful. Absolutely awful. But at any rate. Good for the Andhra Hopkins. Twenty nine thousand dollars is his wildcard paycheck that he is giving that family, and that is great great news. You know, it almost makes you root for the Texans. And it certainly makes me root for Andre Hopkins to be that kind of guy. I think that's fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. I also think totally unrelated before we get to the big show and my game picks. I think it's fantastic. Those of you that go ahead and shop over at Ross Tucker dot com on the shop tab, if you haven't checked out the stuff, we have it's pretty cool. You can get something for your phone like a skin for your phone. I have it on my laptop right here. It's awesome. Like the top of my laptop is a Ross Tucker football podcast sticker with our logo. I think it looks awesome. And then obviously, there's a bunch of awesome t shirts you can get with different catchphrase on the back like it's daddy soda time. I think we're done here. And oh. Oh, yet is big Showtime, right? Joe? Got four games this weekend wild card weekend. Start with your thoughts on the colts. And texans. So it's always interesting division games teams have already played against each other twice this year. And I don't like the fact that the colts. Are on a short week and the colts play Sunday night on the road. Now they have to play again Saturday on the road Texans. Home Sunday their home again this week. So it is a challenge for the colts in that regard. But it's also a challenge because it's hard to be the team back to back times in their own building. And so the culture on the road again. But I just have a better vibe right now about the colts offensive line then the Texans offensive line. Just I feel like they are playing better. The Texans for whatever reason never really have a good answer for t y Hilton. They just don't they never have a good answer for TY y Hilton. He always tears them up. Maybe they will this time. But I thought the cold for the better team in both matchups this year. Remember, Frank, right? Kinda went forward and fourth down and ended up losing the game as a result. But I really did. I really thought the coach with the better team in both games. And I'm going to pick the better team in this game to be the colts and the win again. I also I love to Shawn Watson. I think he's fantastic. But it seems like luck is dialed in right now the defense is playing very well. So I'm thinking the colts to get the win on the road. And by the way, we're releasing and recording both even money and fantasy feast podcasts later this morning. So you'll have. Those. But I'm just telling you here, I'm taking the colts to win the game. I think the game ends up being twenty four to twenty three the Colt win by point. And they're getting a point to half on the betting line. So Bri your favorite. We can let the glorious dog. He's out. Losses underdog. All right, Seattle and Dallas Saturday night. So this is another game. You gotta love. Okay. That the games we got this weekend. I wouldn't be shocked out of my gourd. If any of these teams went on a playoff run, and you got three games where the betting lines less than a field goal. And then you've got the biggest spread is the bears six point favorites. Over the eagles, which I don't think anybody would be surprised if the eagles one, right? I mean, the eagles with what they've done this year. So a little bit a little bit surprising, but should be an awesome weekend. This another one though where I really do think it'll be a close game. I think these are similar team. I think the Cowboys defense is a little bit better. Then the Seahawks defense they are playing at home. You know, I think the running games are pretty similar right now. I guess what? It comes down to for me is I feel like Dak is hot and cold. And perhaps Dak has a terrific game. And perhaps, you know, he's got a terrific game. And they win and everything's good. But I feel like I know Russell Wilson's going to have a good game. You know, like I feel like there's a ninety five percent chance. Russell Wilson plays. Well and like a sixty percent chance Dak Prescott plays. Well, I'm just being honest. And I think it comes down late in the game. And I have more faith that Russell Wilson's gonna pull out late than I do that Prescott and for evenly matched teams. That's that's kind of the differentiator for me some taking the Seahawks to win a relatively low scoring game twenty to seventeen which means Bry you can once again let. The dog is out. Underdog. I to two games on Sunday. The chargers at the ravens. Both these games should be awesome. As well. I am really really really looking forward to it. I'm gonna I'm gonna take the home team. I don't necessarily feel great about it. Greg. And I talked about it yesterday. His breakdown of these games was awesome. Of course. But what concerns me is that? I think the chargers first of all they played better on the road. That's a fact this year they were seven and one on the road twelve and four overall do the math. So they're better on the road. That's number one number two. They have a lot of miliary now with the ravens having played them a couple of weeks ago, which means I think they they will be better prepared and doing and do a better job against the ravens when it comes to some of the stuff that Greg, and I talked about I don't think they're going to be fooled by that middle linebacker defensive tackle twist stunt that the ravens got him on every time a couple of weeks ago. I also think even though the ravens will change things up a little bit. I also think the chargers should have much more of a comfort level and comfort zone with what they're doing in terms of their quarterback run game and Lamar Jackson. So I think the chargers have a great chance. I just think the ravens at home that defense. I'm going to take the ravens in a low scoring game twenty to seventeen just because it felt like they were really dominant against the chargers. But you know, if they don't get that fumble return for a touchdown. The charges were still right in it. Charters accident a decent job slowing down the run game. Comparatively and church said a bunch of penalties that really hurt them in that game. So I'm taking the ravens twenty two seventeen. But it's not not a lock of the week. That's for sure. All right. The fourth final game. Philadelphia Eagles at the Chicago Bears. So just because of what the eagles did last year and their playoff run as well as the nature of Nick foles. Now, he's playing right now, I don't think anybody would be surprised if the eagles won this game, and I wouldn't either. But. The bears have been playing really well. The bears fans have been waiting a long time for a home playoff game any playoff game. I think that place is going to be bananas. I think the bears defense is gonna play terrific and Trubisky starting to win me over. And I've told you guys about this the clutch throws he made against the Vikings last week. We're really impressive. And if he can do that again, I think the bears win for sure I think he will. I think Trubisky it's gonna play. Well, I think the eagles obviously need foles to play great. They need their defensive line to dominate the action. And I don't know that it's going to happen. I don't know that either. One of those things are gonna happen. I'll take the bears. Same score as the last couple of games believe it or not three straight games where I am going twenty two seventeen in this case, I am taking. The Chicago Bears, and that'll do it by the way Bri for a finish strong Friday winners Friday picks Friday edition of the mighty RTF reminder as always that a new contest for everything starts this week.

"Taste though is the official watch of the NBA since eighteen fifty three tesol watches have stood for Swiss quality and reliability. Each. One. Of those timepieces delivers quality performance in traditional lecturing this holiday season, get the NBA fan in your life. I so watch T so team quickstart are fifty percent off available only at U S T. So shop dot com. Jazz out audience that failed that did not make our show. We still love, you know, baby. Lamar Jackson with him as a starter. Running rain growing pretty good. There we go the Seahawks and the Panthers and seeing the play every year way to go. Russell wilson. Yup. Canyon. Sorry. I this. And also a lot is apparently. A lot is apparently go higher ground. I am. So glad that you finally got to go on your crusader against Mike is not a crusade against them. Still works. You just say I wouldn't have made that high Baraboo their first name the Packers. Green Bay fell to four six in one last night. After Aaron Rodgers got outplayed by Kirk cousins and the Vikings Bo who deserves more responsibility for this loss isn't Mike McCarthy Roger slow, according to a carriage on a television show that you have watched to get this line deserving. Got nothing to do with. It doesn't deserve the majority of the blame for this. That matter when he's out of there does it. They got a week schedule coming up at the end of the year. But it's hard to think that if they even they went out nine six one is going to get them into the playoffs that being said the Aaron Rodgers that we are getting now like this eight the twenty eleven version of Aaron Rodgers at his best. He still does amazing elite things. He also missed also big throws in this. When it was a party in the backfield because the offense while we're doing a lot of favors in Minnesota brings the heat. Yeah. But Aaron Rodgers we'll get to that. Throw to devante devante Adams late in the game that throat. Was huge at throw was big. That's the kind of throw that could have changed the game. And give them a chance to win Mike McCarthy didn't miss that era. Rogers, did no. And there should be two clocks that are ticking in the minds every Packer fan of watch this very catchable or theoretically should have been catchable ball. The two clocks are a the one on like McCarthy, and we know how that's going to end. But the second one is on B body of Aaron Rodgers because the guy as much as you subscribing to the TV twelve method. We know that he and Grady happened talking trying to extend his career he's turning thirty five in December. And he was seventeen of twenty eight one hundred ninety eight yards. And when you get suboptimal Aaron Rodgers, it's okay to call it out as such Mike McCarthy isn't responsible for every bad thing. Even if he's not really helpful in. This regard is okay. But here's the thing about Aaron Rodgers on bad wheel right air ride is on bad wheel in Aaron Rodgers aging means something different than it might for some of his peers on the strategy that he's all because at lettuces was a part of his game in a way that. It is Tom Brady and way that it is not for drew Brees. Like once those things declined, it matters more for the way that he has to play that'd be as it. He is out here on a bed wheel. If the wheel is better. Would he look better? It's fair to ask that. But right now, we got numbers on a card. He's twenty eight in the league and completion percentage twenty eighth like do we think over this level of Agassi and his skill that being said he's great throwing the ball down the field. He's making the big places got more twenty plus air yard completions than anybody else. In the league has this year. Hasn't don't interception on a twenty yard plus air yard pass. He hasn't made any of those mistakes. But they don't look like a playoff team. And if they're not a playoff team who's gonna take the blame for his loss. The dude is gonna take the blame for everything the do not Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy does not get any help from the economy of coaching that surrounding him because it is it is boom times for being an offensive minded head coach in the NFL for being a true, play collar and Mike McCarthy's. Still the criticism is still fair. He's not scheming guys open. We're watching him struggle to maximize guy who's talent to your credit is unparalleled at the quarterback position. The problem is why is he only trying to really make plays happened with devante Adams. Why isn't there someone else isn't that the front office at some point that should be brought to the table as well? And not just McCarthy, but they wasted the crime of the best quarterback of his generation thing. Is you need to realize that a little sooner. Yeah. A little late now to be like damn we wasted errands prime. Let's get the most out of the twilight could've used him nicknames. Beggar Mayfield browse quarterback toss. Four touchdowns and eight thirty five twenty win over the Bengals after the game is really fired coach Hugh Jackson now employed by Cincinnati wanna come over congratulate them glass stuff watch. There's you Jackson. Bills would fan shake up. I can't tell you going for the he was going for the was in Baker Mayfield gave him the soft. Spinach handshake. The disrespect would have been more disrespectful within the left hand. Now after the game bega was asked about giving Hugh the cold shoulder. Let us listen to classy gentlemen, of course. Good job the game. Didn't feel like talking. I don't know. Lift Cleveland Cincinnati. That's just somebody that was in our locker Maschen for us to play for him. And then goes through different team twice a year. That's how I feel. No. I mean, it's just like any rivalry game. That's how it is. Now. That's how I'm gonna treat. It every time we plan. But it's it's nothing. There's no hate. That's just how it is going to treat it, and I think that's our team street to. Bob, lows Baker have legitimate Cosby upset, huge ex-. No. But this is veteran savvy at the same time he is turning Hugh Jackson into a useful traitor. They now have this figure to rally around against which is strange because Hugh Jackson is only in Cincinnati because he had nowhere else to go. Hugh Jackson left town because he was fired because they kicked him out of town. And so if you want to hold the fact that Jackson would dare share secrets about your offense, or whatever it was allegedly going to be with Marvin Lewis, I get it. But you Jackson could not be lower right now at this point in time. He is seemingly somebody who could use any sort, of empathy and gets the opposite. I don't even think he's at Mayfield was worried about him trading secrets like it was just the idea that you went to go fraternize with the enemy, right? I mean like this is ridiculous. What he is. Ultimately, saying the basis of the thing is he's the guy that's driven by slights. He that we'll go find like. Real Michael, Jordan sort of quality. Right. He is driven by slight. Therefore, this is the slight. This is a guy that used to be down with us. And now he's down with somebody else. And then he turns it into something. He went further later to dig and Hugh Jackson was like, yeah. Now, we feel confident that people we have called them plays for us. It is like Hugh never actually called a play for you. That was Todd Haley that was the one that was doing that. What is this an intended to make sense? It's intended to make Baker Mayfield feel bad. Then turn that into feeling good and Hugh Jackson in this game. By the way, wasn't calling the plays either. He was standing behind Marvin Lewis like he was Marvin Lewis stunt double. And instead in fact came around to be the guy that everybody through roundhouse kick sat instead of Marvin Lewis in one of those roundhouse kicks. You might argue was this play from areas random what a bad grade for you to just at a session had to happen directly in front of right there. Because as it happens. That allows the due to give you the ball to give it to you get what the hell I see you big all be any dropped the ball. They're after. But this is oh, this is a team that is looking for an identity, and they have found it in opposition to their former coach, which is strange because you know, the guy was fired. But hey, well, whatever. Defining identity an identity for week. It'll be identity the next time. They play them. Then I go into a game against the Steelers feel like we're gonna show Hugh Jackson. They wish they could though last day. Blake Bortles after losing estimated, Josh Allen and the bills. The Jacksonville Jaguars have made some changes Doug Marrone, his analysis that Cody Kessler will start Sunday against the colts. And this morning announced that they are firing offense coordinator, Nathaniel Hackett, according to you and Rappaport Hackett quote thought he was being called into discussing QB change. Instead he was out and quote, obviously, the QB change happened. Anyway. So what is your reaction to this news? This doesn't make any sense now right now it made no sense to fire Hackett at the expense of Bortles than I imagined hack. It's frustration where he thinks they're about to tell them that. Finally, he can call somebody to blame for it was like now we had to be cooking with game. And they tell them. No. We're about to be cooking with Blake without you. And then after they fire him they say, oh, by the way, Blake Bortles is being benched. So whose faults are you saying that this is that it's going in this way? If you think you need to check out another quarterback. Why did you wait this long to season? You didn't have to set fire to the season before you make any of these decisions. I don't understand anything. They are doing right now the best defensive what the Jaguars are doing right now is that they are finally recognizing who is bad at their job that they employ. Maybe they truly believe that Nathaniel Hackett isn't the answer that the fact that he was running the ball. So often about sixty to seventy percent of the time while I'm not saying that it was. Look at that. Right there. You know, what they should have done. Right. Then what do they play? But here's the problem. If you do not believe in the annual Hackett then. Yeah, I get it. Get him out of there. Maybe he's not the right? Chef for this kitchen with two weird ingredients. But the second thing you do which is getting rid of Bortles. We were all calling for it. So my question simply is if you are Tom Coughlin, and you're trying to be Preservationists about yourself rinse you like be served to get like a week with Bortles and then play this as long as possible. Because getting this all done today seems like it's a bit too radical for his self interested personal go look at the quarterback that Doug Marrone is as the fan you'll Hackett to coordinate in Jacksonville and in buffalo now that being it this team has lost six games in a row. And if you wanna see the level of frustration here, let afford that won't find somebody so bad that he ran sixty yards to do it. Now, this is one of the most Larry's plays I've ever seen because it's one of those simultaneous possession things. I never really understand how it works. But neither one of these is letting go to ball knows right? They laid up all. All top each other everything else this four that. He wasn't in the game. Right. He's ready to go. The scrat- happened. Carlos. Hi, who's also, a state radio do keeping in mind. The four Willison was injured before a game. In college ran out to the fight before the game, then told coach I'm playing a twenty minutes later was out on the field and pads. Yeah, let him for not necessarily the best judge of when to risk one's body. But but Bo they were still on the ground holding up. All when all this was happening. Yes. Just because what else is there to do? Not really know. What's happening just played safe by gripping? This will not to do was fight Linter for net coming up next quarter. Patterson?

We got a shocker the quarterback in Tampa this week. Did not turn the ball over. You. Also, didn't go to college with you. But he did pass the ball to a guy was alum same school with hammer and breakage out to you fooling us with that reach buddy. He is a wonderful tied at first quote. You know, one of our tenets is protected team. He didn't protect the team. And like I said nobody is bigger than the team. Said forty nine or general manager John Lynch when explaining the release of twenty seventeen first round pick linebacker Ruben foster was accused of domestic violence Saturday night. It's the second time since February. Let's listen. I think one lesson. I've you know, I've learned being around this league for almost thirty years now in different capacities is that nobody is bigger than the team. And that's what this decision came down to us one of our tenants. Protect the team. He didn't protect the team. Like, I said nobody's bigger than the team in his town of the player as he was as many positive steps that he was making. We felt like this was the best decision to make. Bowl. What's your reaction to how this went down talking about that is the immediate reaction? And the reason that I say that is everything that he said in that availability that he had with the media was all these like cliche. Football terms. You talking about the way that Rupa foster was maturing as this went on is though this is an issue of maturity like this is something that you just magically grow out. Right. And then right there, you know, this was about protecting the team. That's the issue. Like, that's what this comes down to right now is protecting the team if the head coach said something like that. Maybe I'm being blind to listen to it and ride with you are the general manager there's a bigger picture morality behind with these decisions. And when the Ray rice thing happened in two thousand fourteen that was opportunity as an industry and around that sport to get some understanding of how these things work. Incorrect. Some of the errors that we have made in the past and the way that we evaluate these things. Instead, John Lynch is just like, hey, man, you messing things up for us. When you go out here and beat up women. Now, you got to go. How dare you endanger this for your football team? Your football team. Well, that's the strange part that I kind of credit John Lynch for John Lynch foe is derelict in his duty as a human being who is overseeing other human beings, someone who should have empathy for others. But as a football guy, he's being very upfront about what he actually cares about. And on that level. I do understand you only care about self protection. And that's what you said you should care about more. But that's all you got. I guess so you don't get credit for admitting to be terrible. But honesty's don't get credit for omitting to be terrible. Coming in knowing that they it in the secondary. Personally, I would've loved to attack them. But it wasn't in our game play. Said Odell Beckham when asked by the giants didn't throw him more during yesterday's loss to the eagles. Listen. Secondary investments, honestly that that's a question for coach is not really, you know, my kind of question. I don't call the place. I just do what I'm told to do and go out there and execute whenever I get opportunity to do some I try and make the most of it. If I don't have to all I can do is is what I came when I do have an opportunity. So as more of a question for coach, you know, coming in knowing that they struggled in the secondary. Personally. I would I would have loved to attack them. But it wasn't in our game plan. Translations not my fault. Pablo? Why do you figure eight and throat Odell more? So speaking of people who cannot admit to being terrible the New York Giants, they should not be trying to win these games. They should be tacking. They should be losing. I don't know if they're doing this intentionally or not bow. The reason why they're not throwing dodo Beckham junior is a mystery. The reason why they're not running the ball more with saquon Barkley after he has one hundred yards and a receiving and rushing touchdown in the first half and gets five touches in the second half. Is it incompetence or is it actual strategy? They should be losing. But I just don't know if it's actually a strategy that they the thing is they moved up and down the field in the first half. And then the second half was a completely different story ally. Manning for the last three weeks at the very least look like a professional quarterback. So you couldn't really get so mad at him for not throwing more in the first half because they were so effective in what it was that they were doing how ever man the eagles tried it out. Think they're top three quarters had one start combined coming into this game. This was not one where the giants should've been avoiding the best player on the field. And that one guy with the one start covering Odell Beckham junior. Last, quote, I'm a grown, man. I don't need. No one's asking bleep bleep in my face. Said patriots receiver running back Cordeiro Patterson explaining grabbing and squeezing the groin of just defensive end, Henry Anderson, let's watch what went down. This great matters. You ain't seen. All right. Very is. Right here. Oh, yeah. Okay. I see why he was there Steph. I and they're they're sweet squeeze squeeze like you don't have squeeze got tighter. And tighter. Yeah. Yeah. Got them off Anderson do said that he didn't even feel it which what? Should Henry Anderson accept the explanation that Patterson gave him because Patterson is saying I don't need all of that. Well up in here. I ain't gonna live man. I mean, I'm not really this type of person and a lot of different ways and a lot of different realms. But I feel like if I'm here, we Anderson don't explain that to me goes playing that to police like what I I feel like what I would is. There was a felony. All right. Like, I feel like that's sort of treatment and being treated that way. That's something that you need to take up with low enforcement at that point. That's how I feel with the weird thing is that Cordeiro Patterson is in the sport. Where a bleep bleep in a believe are going to be in your face a lot. Fumble. Bo dies. He wasn't. It wasn't a linger.

Hour 1: Steelers vs Brown

"Welcome to Spain. And fits the podcast. Yeah. That's how you that's how you light a fire and make it burn even bigger yells Odio Brown recording some than in June. That airs the very night is coaches talking about him bailing on his team. Thank you L. You are bringing us all the petty. You are bringing us the drama. We've been missing some of this petty in the NBA, right? The NBA is handling its business behaving itself. Thank you and Tonio Brown for dressing up as a hippo on the FOX show, the masks singer and performing my prerogative. Couldn't be more. Perfect song, by the way, shout out Bobby Brown, and he'll use all up, right? Sara. This is dying. This is a real. This is the headline. Embattled wide receiver blows off team dresses as hippo performs Bobby Brown twenty nineteen baby. Get off the Lauren start. Let's. Off to a good start Sarah Spain and field Yates, it's Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty we are presented by progressive insurance. And that is one hundred percent, right. A show that just premiered last night that by the way taped back in June happen to premiere the very night that Antonio Brown was getting undressed by his coach for blowing off his team in the final game of the season. And that night we see him as a dancing hippo who reveals his head and field. I don't know. If you watch the clip, but I'm pretty sure no one in the audience knew who it was they in the audience knew it was so funny, Sarah because it's ironic that over the past day, I'd say a day and a half the athlete that has dominated the news cycle and sport has been in Tonio Brown, who's got the million dollar smile in the unmistakable. Look, I mean, he's got the crazy haircut going on right now. He's got the dance moves in the end zone. The signature eighty four Steelers jersey. The flare the swagger, everything that could sort of create an athlete. Perfect in many brands is for marketing he has marketable to a T. It's why he is so prolific during your television commercials. Not just during your television viewing experience on Sunday during games. And here we are last night where he was amongst a room of strangers. It was really truly unbelievable. And it's like it was total coincidence total coincidence that all of this coincided with the day that he is the center of attention because of trade rumors, but it was the most beautiful coincidence. I could possibly think of now just this is the headline revered NFL player perhaps embattled wide receiver dresses as a hip o reveals himself during basically karaoke show like could not craft like is that an that's like the onion is envious of that headline right there that is really fair satire no longer exists. Correct. Variety of reasons our current day, it's impossible to be satirical anymore because everything is real no matter how unbelievable it is. But this one. Yeah, dancing hippo that one I wouldn't have believed. But here we are and simultaneously as we're all reacting to first of all there's a show called the mask singer. And people are watching it and involves dancing hippos. We are also seeing guys like Jarvis Landry trying to recruit him on Twitter, which leads me to ask you field. You would know this does the NFL have tampering or collusion. Rules. The way the NBA does knowing the NBA they don't really know how to regulate players, but they do certainly make a point of talking about management and higher ups. Is that exists in the NFL it does, but it's mostly focused towards GM's head coaches like it's one thing for a coach to praise the brilliance of a player in the week leading up to that player being an opponent of there's like this week if Bill O'Brien in the Texans head coach dishes on Andrew luck. It's like, okay. Yeah. They're playing Andrew luck and the colts this. Weekend. But even last year remember when Alex Smith was traded to the Redskins during Super Bowl week the Redskins acted like nothing happened for a month and a half like at the combine at Jay Gruden their head coach just sort of danced around it to the point that like reporters, kind of got the got the got the point right? Like don't even bother asking him. Because if anything like you're kind of just being an only damn kind of a jerk, right? Like he is literally not allowed to say anything. And if he does he will face significant repercussions that could include a fine that like asking him and trying to. That down. Yeah. Everything had if you had to completely act as if nothing had happened. I remember when the Redskins tweeted like, hey, we have agreed to a trade for Alex Smith. I remember like being like. Wow. Coach winning it with something snarky along the lines of like, wow. Out of nowhere. News of the day. Redskins acquire Alex Smith only front. By trade had been agreed to but that's just a way that it works in the NFL. So but players communicating on social media, or it's almost like flirting on social media's what's happened over the last few days with the NBA for sure in the NFL. I just wasn't sure if they even attempted to control it the way that the NBA sometimes when you see something like LeBron James talking about Anthony Davis, smaller market, people come out and kind of goof on say come on. We got to do something about this. It doesn't seem like it'd be easy to do something. But at least they seem to care whereas in the NFL, you're right. It kind of just feels like this is part of the game here. The LeBron thing. Bush just because it's the Bronx. Right. Like it. Right. Is going to get all the headlines. Right. And if it's if it was I I don't even know that there is an NFL player that's on the same. There isn't an NFL player of the Brown. But if Brady came out and started, hey, you know, like it will be amazing to play with Antonio Brown. Now granted LeBron was asked about playing with Anthony Davis didn't just like open up the Mike and Sarah guys. So big statement for me today is that it will be sweet to play with Anthony Davis. He was asked by David Menemen, our colleague here ESPN, and he answered honestly and directly if so I just think that the stirred LeBron cause was part because it's the Bron and part because like the NBA Davis trade, and I'm sure we'll talk about this throughout the show's. They're like feels like a matter of when not if. Yeah. Well, okay. So this is what I'm getting at sarahspain field. Eight Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio the espionage and Sirius XM channel eighty and obviously we spent a whole bunch of time yesterday talking about everything that went down with Antonio Brown. What Mike Tomlin said about the situation we Rosenhaus calling on Sunday morning. All. Of this stuff. But what we're now hearing in addition to him being a dancing hippo is Adam Schefter saying that it's almost seems inevitable now that he would be traded. And to me looking at the financials of it. In addition to what the sky is worth. This is sort of unbelievable. This is according to Adam Schefter. There's a growing sense around the league that a Steelers trade of receiver. Antonio Brown is a real possibility and a time frame of note would be March eighteenth, which is five days after the new league year begins when he's do a two and a half million dollar roster bonus from the Steelers, but correct me if I'm wrong here field. They would basically own him a million dollars more, and he'd be on the team than the amount of dead cap space that would hit if they got rid of him. Right. So really what it comes down to Syria is are you willing to carry the burden of what could be a twenty one million dollar distraction next year? That's how much you're going to have to pay a be if he is part of your team next season. If you don't have them on your team, the upside is you could recruit, you know, you're you're gonna get something design. Terrible. Right. Whether it's a draft a young player like you're not gonna get into Neo Brown. If you're not going to trade him away for peanuts. Like, it's going to be a lucrative deal. If you're able to strike one. But you know, the cap thing is real they're going to have to if they do trade him. They're going to pay twenty one million dollars against the cap or they're going to have a twenty one million dollar charge against the cap to have Antonio Brown play for somebody else. Now, it's swallow hard moment for Pittsburgh. The Steelers would point to an NFL team that would be in this situation would point to well, listen, we can be flexible with other contracts, and we carried over an additional fourteen point five million dollars this past year because lady on bell never showed up, and we are also saving, you know, fifty million dollars in cash that we were going to eventually have to pay Tonio Brown. So the ultimate reality. If you're trading Antonio Brown as you can talk yourself into it. If you're the Pittsburgh Steelers, and you might not have to sell it that hard yourself, Sarah. It might just be hey, you know, something like the guys. A real pain in the rear. He's been subversive. He has been divisive. It's time for us to move on. We can replace replacing Tonio Brown's production enough because we are the Steelers and nobody drafts receivers better than we do. Absolutely. And this and we talked about it yesterday. It seems improbable and impossible to imagine him being traded. But the more information we have and the more drama, there seems to be surrounding this Steelers team the more it seems like it is possible Spain infants feel Gatesville and infra fits. We are presented by progressive insurance. You can always hit us up on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed at Spain and Fitz at field Yates at sarahspain coming up next did around the horn today and sometimes on around the horn days we like to go after the horn. We'll do that next pain and fits Spain and Fitz not a lot being said by pop or by other than just we're looking forward to what's in front of us. We're not looking back. Nothing can be gained nice to have him. Nice to be there. Yada, yada, yada. Let's play basketball. Call spain. Infants sarahspain field Yates with me today on ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty and Leonard does return to face San Antonio and the Spurs tonight and while he may not be a particularly verbose guy. Sure. A lot of feelings surrounding this return. I always think about the laugh, and I just wonder what would things get better at easier for him. If he talked more or less, right? As he like, he did the laugh, and he's like that's why I don't do anything because then it just gets turned into a me or or if he supplied us with more material would we finally lay off that darn laugh from his introductory presser. It's really tough to say field. Just one short statement would get a little bit of contrition toward here here here. Here's here's a taste of the very brief commentary from why today in surrounding his return. Here's a little taste of his best memories from San Antonio was going through those play all that is me. Me in a euro definitely against the finals in a plane against that Miami team twice. Right. You want more of that? Or you good. That was like who is the word easiest coach or player in the NFL in in sports. Like who is the person that like you ask them short simple, Greg go on forever? And it turns into a diatribe. I'm trying to think if there's like, or maybe I happen to think that Mike Tomlin is like one of the great words missing sports. Like, I just love Mike, Tom. Yes. That I never heard of. And I'm like I am incorporating that like I'm writing that down right now. So that I can use that. Right. You know, like, I remember, I think is one of his great ones was excuses are tools of the incompetent, I draw the next family dinner that I went. What am I saying Tomlin's got some free time to be honest with you other than you know, all the time. Cleaning up this situation. He could sit down with Kawhi from minute. Give him a couple of good ones. I like that. So we talked about kunai on around the horn today. And sometimes when I do around the horn, we like to bring it to this show fits has been clamoring to get he's just he he's trying to be me. You want to lead the tar he wants on around the horn. What is settle settle rook? You got some time to put in I but field you've been around long enough. You can give it a shot. So what we do is a little after the horn where you get the tag in and give give your thoughts. Pretend you're on the show. And here's our conversation today about Leonard you've already gone around the horn. But what happens after the horn find out now on Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio reports, the Spurs prepared a tribute video, but we'll wait for the fans reception to see if they'll show it which is intriguing as well. Tim Keller shown start with your urine Texas's somewhat of your Gert. How should? Be received by fans and San Antonio tonight. Tony were a little more civilized, the Lone Star state than some places when it comes to these things I think a lot of people will applaud him remembering all he did for the team. But there will be certainly a decent percentage of people booing him, and I don't blame them. And I have a problem with the way he left. I mean, if he couldn't play all year he played nine games last year. And if you really couldn't play because of that quad injury, that's fine. But the problem was he never communicated directly with people. He never spoke every time we talked about on this show. It was people around Leonard say, and I think he owed it to the fans to explain what is problem with the Spurs was that's what everybody couldn't understand. So they shipped him off. He's doing great. And that's great. But I think he will get booed for the kind of lack of concern given point here we were playing oddsmakers percentage. Cheers percentage boost him sixty forty booing unless you weren't sure where you were going to say as you were saying it which is worthy. Mute sarahspain answer that question. I I'm gonna go seventy thirty cheers. And I think because a lot of people who will be tempted to maybe not give him a warm response may instead just decide to sit on their hands and go fairly silent or keep it pretty tempered. Because I think booing is a pretty demonstrative way to welcome him back and forgets a lot of the career that he did have there. I don't begrudge people their annoyance with the way he left in the way things went down at all. But there was a lot of good that happened before. And I think people will probably follow the lead of their coach in Popovich who took the high road. He didn't say anything negative. He didn't he praised on when they did have a good tenure together. He just said, listen, there's nothing to be rehashed. Now. None of us are making anything. Good out of it. Let's. Silence over buoy, you think much. That's right. So I think they remember the NBA finals MVP from two thousand fourteen and even though they may be frustrated they kind of just a little bit less enthusiastic than they would be returned via someone sending him away. Go ahead and jump in field Europe. You're nuts. You're not to remember the reason why because I'm trying to think of other situations where a player has returned after an uncertain Ramona's dismissal or uncertain unceremonious exit one that comes to mind is of course. Kevin Durant going back to Oklahoma City where there was a mixture of applause, I would say that the overall sentiment was like gratitude for what he brought to that city. But he was the greatest player to ever put an Oklahoma City thunder jersey. Russell Westbrook will eventually take the cake there. Thank you. But like in San Antonio Kawhi returns, like how many great players have we seen in the Spurs organization over the past fifteen or twenty years. David Robinson, Tim Duncan monitor Nobu. Nobly? Tony parker. That's just like the core four right there. But there are many others that were of the same ilk. But we're revered and beloved whether it's a Robert or a big shot. Bob, what he did for that franchise guys that contributed Bruce Bowen two championship winning teams that I think the city of oh Gregg Popovich took the high though, this is a classy organization top to bottom and fan base is sometimes are reflective of the organization as a whole I still think there's a lot of angst in bitterness towards coli Leonard because it wasn't like the this all took place because of how it ended last year Kawai basically duct on last season ninety played and the Spurs ready to have them out there for probably all but like nine games period like the opposite. I just think that the taste in the mouth was so bitter. So sour right now for Spurs fans. And I wouldn't be surprised if it's a pretty hefty decided edge for the booze over the cheers. All right. Well, excellent answer you'd be. Kicked off the show because you've now spent the entire twenty two minutes making your point. But you would get a couple of points for making sense. I say this much I do think that part of the reason that the frustration probably endures. There is because of a lack of information we still have so many questions about what exactly went down in San Antonio. Right. We don't really know how much of it was the the the folks in the training staff for San Antonio that he didn't trust. We don't know how much of it was you know, wanting out because of something having to do with Popovich teammates or anything else. So I think that absolutely inspires the animosity that remains there. I'm just wondering if what we know about this franchise and also what he meant to them before. They don't strike me the same way as some other cities in terms of vengefulness. And that's why I do think then there will be probably more cheers than booze although people who are angry and booing tend to be a bit louder. So that might might or no one ever tells you, hey, you did a great job filling in for fits last night. Most of the. That was a moronic taken. I never run here. You're right. I mean, that's probably just yours might Witter is full of sunshine and sentiment. It is just non-stop non-stop compliments, and we're going to talk to Tim von temps a little bit later in the show. He is out in San Antonio is gonna give us the latest on that as we lead up to return to San Antonio. Tony reality.

Infants field Yates sitting in four-fifths today. We'll talk to Bobby carpenter. Go over some of the defenses in the wildcard match-ups this weekend. Spain and Fitz. Dance with Spain. And fits let it out to the shell Pennzoil performance line where Bobby carpenter former NFL linebacker. He can be heard on ninety seven one the fan in Columbus carpenter and Rothman joins us to break down the defenses in this wild card weekend. Let's just start right off the bat with that first game on Saturday colts and Texans. What are you seeing defensively from these squads? When you look at the colts. So there's been a lot better on different than I think people give credit for everyone looks at this colts defense has been atrocious. The last couple of years, and we're they're really good is their top ten defense against the run. They do a terrific job slowing down the running game, especially in yards per attempt. I mean, you might be able to try to volume a little bit. But people don't look at this cold seen as a good defensive unit. And that is not true. They do a good job, and they can get after the quarterback and the two times that they played Houston saying a whole lot because the Shawn Watson sec more than any of their quarterback in the NFL, but they have twelve sex in the first two meetings. So look for this game to be a situation where they get after the quarterback. They can stop the run that could be a long day for the Texans. Conversely carpenters offense of line play. We know that the colts have been very good this season. Although Ryan Kelly their center is questionable for this game on Sunday. The number one rushing visited the NFL is the Texans. Is there any way? The colts can neutralize JJ watt and his fleet of defensive playmakers coats of ridable a lot better especially here in the second half of the season. But they're they're not a great running team. Texans were good upfront. That is definitely the strength of their team it strengthens their defense. You'll get cloudy youngest he'll get wide and what they're able to do up front. You know, Andrew luck gets time. He's really good. And here's the thing in their turn wins. It only given up six sacks and their six losses. They've given up twelve six and so obviously they split against Houston. At four sacks giving up in the loss to sex given up in the win and those stats kind of hold true with where they've been all season. So they're able to protect interlock you're gonna have to do that by trying to run the ball a little bit the one of the things he's so good at is getting the ball out of his hand. He sees the rush she can move. If you watch them, you know, in the last couple of weeks, he's a former athletic quarterback than people give him credit for you got the neck beard, kind of sound goober and all shucks guy. But all of a sudden, you watch him run around like spin out, you know, in may. Make a play into a touchdown pass rolling through in the back of the end zone. And if that guy was Aaron Rodgers Cam Newton, you're saying, man, he's a great athlete. But it's. You know? It's like, oh, okay. Like, I guess he does. But he's really the guy who's back this time at Stanford. So I think you'll be able to use his field lewd the Russia a little bit. And that could be the difference in the game goober can move. And like it we're talking to you could follow him on Twitter at be carp. Three. Former NFL linebacker joining us to break down defenses. We got Seahawks Cowboys Saturday night. What do you see defensively from those squads? You know, it's interesting Dallas defense is really good. But look at a lot of this stuff. I try to look at the last eight weeks because at the beginning of the season teams are still finding their way and where they're at. And you you look at this the last year since week nine on Dallas is one of the worst defenses on third down, which is kind of ironic because they've been playing really good defensive a really good defensive line in their able to get stops. But they just don't seem to get off the field all that wall on third down. And you know, when you look at Seattle, they're great on third down there. One of the best in the NFL. They're great in the red zone, but you know in there, but on defense, they can't really stop the run. So like I try to look at this match like Dallas should be able to run the ball up and down the field. It should be able to pound the ball on him. But when they get down into third and longs situations they get down in the red zone. That's where it's gonna fall back Prescott. He looks really good in this trial game against the giants with no Zeke. He's gonna have to have a game. Like that to be able to go out there and play. At a high level to be able to for the Cowboys have success this. I think is one of the worst matchups that Dallas could have drawn just simply by the way to sea hawks are built they can control the clock. They like to run the football, and they can play really good defense carp. Is this the team that feels most vulnerable at home to you this weekend in Dallas Cowboys, although they are favored all of the lines are fairly close this weekend this wildcard setting. They all Sommese at the beginning of the week. I looked at the set, you know, what this is probably regained that. I think is most likely to have the home team or the home team lose and get upset by the wildcard. I really think that colts Texans show. I think Andrew I guess it done. I think Seattle is going to be close it. It's gonna really come down with. These teams are very similar to the one argument. You could make maybe Dallas is a little bit more of a receiver in Amari Cooper versus you know, maybe a Doug Baldwin. But outside of that if good defenses they both run the ball. Really? Well, it's gonna come down to coaching and quarterbacks and. You look at what Brian Schottenheimer done up there in Seattle. I think he's one of the unsung coaches here this season with how he's transforming offense, which to me was still kind of your way, they're playing really good football. And you know, a lot of this 'cause they run it. But then you look at the the quarterback match up who do you trust? Really Moore's this point. I've watched Russell Wilson do this for seven years at a very high level. He's been very efficient. He's been very effective. Dan, it gives me a performance like he did against the giants of week seventeen. I think this is going to be very very close game. But I wouldn't be surprised Seattle out here Spain and field Yates with you. Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio talking to Bobby carpenter. Former NFL linebacker about the defenses that make up these teams and wild card weekend. Let's get to the most important game of the week. Obviously Chicago Bears taking on the eagles who barely barely each their way into the playoffs. Thanks actually to my bears. What do you make of the defenses on these two? These two teams. We'll Phillies been a lot better the second of the season. You know, let you start looking at this and trying to figure it out and they've been beat up like their secondary's not great. But they seem to find a way, you know, to be able to stop the run when they need to. And they're scoring defense has been pretty good. You know, put a lot of credit without Jim Schwarzer defensive coordinator plate former Detroit, you can be very aggressive when he needs to be. But he's found a way to say, hey, you know, we'll give up some yards between the twenties. Played play. Good defense, the roads or find a way to get stops. And you know, because of that Chicago, everyone looks at him, Sarah. And you look at this team. He's like, okay, they play great defense, and they can run the football and their quarterbacks made enough plays this year. But in the second half of the season, Chicago has really ran the ball that well there near the bottom in yours for they haven't really done a good job of running the football. Despite the fact that they have Jordan Howard intrigue Cohen two guys that are very different than both for you know, in gives them versatility there with what they wanna do. And so I'm only concern. For me is is they're able to slow down run in Philadelphia. And everybody's gonna pass rush. Which Trubisky to me? I thought that he's still really your way from development from where this team is everywhere else, very talented and a lot of parts in. It's I think fall back to their quarterback if he plays like he has most of the season. He's a fissure with the football. I don't have to have great numbers and you'll get a lot of his stat line. Sixteen of twenty one eighteen twenty four you know, maybe two hundred yards. You know, two hundred twenty yards one touchdown one interception or one touchdown. Nope. No picks. Like that's the game. You could win with him. The problem is I get worried that if there were slow that run the pass rush gets going that emiss- made, you know, potentially cough up a couple of fumbles. You can maybe throw some picks. He's I don't know if he's necessarily where he needs to be at this point to be able to go and win a playoff game himself and he's done a good job. And now he's put him in position exceed the problem is in the playoffs that you can take away some of those other things it's Philly. I think can do then it could be a situation. Where Trubisky could be in trouble. I still Chicago d is too much Philadelphia. I think they will they'll get after them. They'll be able to slow it down. But there's something that is unqualified all about the Nick foles effect. And I'm not really sure how to put my finger on like the five energy is what it is there. I mean, he must channel, you know, those pets Oxy got from okla- Rico. That's right. Well, I'm not really sure how that works. Just makes everybody around him better. I think the bears are able to get out to them. I think they'll win that game. But it's it's a situation where I get a little worried there is this thing as the phone Trubisky. And you put him a lot in third among situations is a good job pulling you down and running. But you have to look at the teams both of these teams very strong on the defensive line. I think Philadelphia that they could get some strips actor caused turn over there. And you know, opportune time that could be very difficult for Chicago team. That's really good that they're the best when they're playing from a head because they're not really built to come from behind right now with where Trubisky is carp. The most recent rematch in the playoffs is the ravens and chargers who played just a couple of weeks ago when a critical week sixteen showdown, which the ravens won the chargers are weird in the sense that they're undefeated in games not played in the state of California this year. Is there something to be said? Or is that merely an outlier? The season in just two small sample size. You know, anything is too small the sample size at this point. I mean, they're very good. They they can run the football. I mean, that's blatantly obvious look at how good the ravens are. I mean, they can pound the rock and doing so they have a great defense that venture difference better because they control the time for dishing. They don't ask him to do too much. And with that, you know, you allow that defense to really live because they're not going to be tired. They're documentary fatigue in the second half that you just can't a little bit worried. There does this is the second time now that they've seen them. And not the case, you know, I wonder if Lamar Jackson will be able to have this success that he had running the ball earlier this year because you only the second time around sixteen a pitcher the first time you see him. It's okay second time. Okay. Thirty you start to get onto what he's doing a little bit. Not that could be a cause for concern for the Baltimore Ravens offense. Awesome stuff. Bobby really appreciate you chiming in. I think I think you're you're very simple assessment of the bears game is the right one. The bears teach is going to be too good. Thanks for making time for appreciate it. Sir. Thanks. Spain and Fitz. Welcome back to Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty Sarah Spain with you as always field Yates villain in for fits again fits his back. Tomorrow. Get triple action protection for optimal engine performance with shelve e power nitro plus premium gasoline good to have field in tonight. He's going to break down the wild card games this weekend a little bit later, but some big news in the NFL today, or at least a NFL adjacent which is currently where this player is is that Ruben Foster's latest accusations of domestic violence. Those charges were dropped all the we really know about why they were dropped comes from the the prosecution who actually believe it was the court system itself there who said, you know, we take this very seriously. But there was not enough evidence to continue I guess field. What does this mean? Or does. This mean anything? Thing or change your opinion at all about the Washington. Football teams quick hand in picking up foster. Nope. Not at all, Sarah. It's insufficient. Evidence is what the court is is currently saying what that sort of the quick description as to why this case was dropped. But it's clear in reading remarks from the attorney for the woman that Reuben foster was previously in a relationship with that. Like that should not have been the case that I'm gonna read the quote here because it's somewhat. I would say I I'm not sure what they hitch. It's emotional. It's jarring may not be the right word is going to pull it up read it here. But the attorney said, and I quote here that we pulled the specific were disappointed the point too, right? Yep. Yep. The prosecutors choices yet another slap in the face to miss Ennis. Just like the one Mr. foster gave her in Tam. That's Madonna pointer who told that the ABC news. I mean, that's that's a that's a heavy quote right there. Sarah that right there tells you exactly how they feel about the decision to have these charges dropped. Yeah. He goes on to say a Lisa Ann was fully ready to participate in hold him accountable. This is not a situation where she recanted nor that the prosecutor had new evidence that it didn't happen. I think it's worth pointing out field for those who may not know this or maybe knowledge it that insufficient evidence. Or a dropped charge is not equal to innocence. Right. It's fucked up to going through a trial and declaring someone innocent. It is instead what very often happens in instances of domestic violence, very often. It's because the victim is encouraged to disappear or encouraged not to cooperate or is receiving death threats or for some of the reason wants to maintain the relationship and doesn't want to put put the relationship or the person that she loves endanger, very. Often, it does end up happening in this case, it appears as though she wanted to continue pushing for the charges at and it didn't happen. And that reason like you said coming from the state attorney's office is that the prosecutor said there was insufficient evidence. Now, let's mix up in clear here. Sarah is just because Ruben foster had these charges dropped it does not mean that he will not face further punishment from the NFL, and the NFL confirmed that they will continue to do their own investigation as they say, they do with every incident despite or no matter what the legal system finds out the NFL will do its own investigation and Sarah. I think the part that to me is the most difficult to wrap my head around is that there are people that still are giving ribbon foster the benefit of the doubt. And I understand that our legal system in this country. Very clearly states that you are innocent until proven guilty at the same time. We're talking about a player that is already been suspended once by the NFL. He's already had charges dropped on a previous domestic violence. Incident. But the same woman said I did that I recounted my statement out of love not because it didn't happen. Like, if you think this sort of clears the air and all of a sudden like everything is well in good with Reuben foster and the Redskins are okay for doing. What they did. I think you're barking up the wrong tree here. Ryan, I think obviously innocent until proven guilty is in a case where you're going to take away someone's life, liberty pursuit of happiness, put them in jail, etc. The NFL is not doing that. They are deciding whether they believe that you have isolated principles and codes of conduct. They are not the ideal people to do that. But it is certainly better than merely ignoring it or expecting that. If the law doesn't do anything. They don't have to either there's still a lot that will end up coming out about this case. And we'll keep you updated on it. Spain fits field Yates in for Fitz coming up Lamar versus rivers experienced versus an experience. It's next Spain and Fitz.

It's what everyone's talking about the Kevin. She and show now. Kevin. Aren't getting started today a little bit later than anticipated. My apologies, just me, Solo, today, actually glad I waited a little bit because this nationals Minor League story got very interesting over the last hour. I'll get to that here. Momentarily I'll weigh in on everything. That's happened here in. In Our world in our in our country and our city here in Washington over the last few days WanNa respond to some of the fourth and fifth discussion from Friday and also talk a little bit about Reuben Foster podcast. Today won't be a long one today. Tommy will be with me tomorrow. I'm sure it'll be a lengthy version tomorrow, first of all let. Let me, just say that I really appreciate Ben. Standing spending as much time as he did with us on Friday and I'm very happy that many of you enjoyed that. I saw the feedback on twitter over the weekend. Ben's Great. You Know Ben does a really good job covering the redskins. He did a really good job covering the wizards and the other teams in town. Town that he covered before he got to the athletic but he knows what's going on in that organization, he talks to a Lotta people inside and outside the organization in the know He's got good sense when it comes to you know putting pieces together logically and I always enjoy a my conversations with Ben so I know it was a a long. Interview? With Ben I think he was on with us for over an hour on Friday, but I enjoyed it. so thanks to him let me just start with this nationals story from today so. I'm assuming with everything that's been going on, and most of you probably miss this. But the nationals over the weekend decided they were going to cut their minor league. stipends by twenty five percent minor league players get about hundred dollars per week, and they were going to cut it back to three hundred dollars per week for the month of June now, what happened after that was several players on the Washington nationals? Big League roster got together via zoom alright, and they unanimously decided to make up that hundred dollars per minor league player out of their own pocket. This is what Sean doolittle. tweeted out that The players were going to pick up the difference out of their own. Own Pocket essentially for all intents and purposes shaming the learners into paying it themselves now doolittle's tweet drew praise on social media drew criticism for the learners and just moments ago, the nats changed course, and they're going to pick up. The hundred dollars is gonNA. Go back to the four hundred dollars per week. Brit giral of the athletic wrote that the nationals facing significant backlash over the one hundred dollars per week cuts for their minor league. Players have decided to re up the stipend while the team did not issue a public statement, it stands to reason that the reaction from fans as well as nationals players. helped spark this shift upon further internal discussion read an internal memo this afternoon. They announced the change Washington did cut forty players last week made up of many minor league, free agents in particular. who were told that they wouldn't be needed because there wasn't going to be a season I, think most people do understand that, and while nothing's officially been announced when it comes to minor league baseball, it does seem inevitable that there's not going to be at twenty twenty minor league season. Season at this point were still unsure as to whether or not, there's going to be a major league season but anyway they gonna cut it by a hundred bucks per player. I mean that really does look bad. I can't do the math because I don't know how many minor league system players there are but whatever the number is at one hundred bucks per pop. It isn't going to add up to such an overwhelming number that the learners couldn't pick it up themselves. So they are now. Brit Julie from the athletic had that story in had that news about the nats basically turning back one hundred eighty degrees on their decision with which was interesting Really, shamed them into a doing it so baseball as long as we're on the subject, the players made their counter proposal to the owners basically ESPN had the story Jeff Passan had the story at at ESPN. They're offering up a one hundred fourteen game season deferred salaries in the event of a canceled postseason, and by the way the option for all players to opt out of the season. If they've got corona virus concerns, that's something that you know. Tommy's been talking about a lot that he thinks that there are a lot of players that are going to opt out of this until they really feel it's safe. Safe for not only themselves, but their families The proposal is expected to be immediately dismissed by the owners, the owners one in eighty two game season in part because they claim the more games they play the more money they lose under the current economics that were agreed to in March the union. The players remain very strong on receiving full pro-rated salaries, even though they would take deferred salaries if oppo season was canceled. You know the fact that that's even presented, tells you that the players are thinking. In terms of yeah, there's a chance we won't finish the season at all. I mean a canceled postseason probably means. A suspended regular season as well which they would get paid in full four based on based on the pro. Pro rated salary structure in March actually the owners proposal last week. would have guaranteed the players They're prorated salaries. Even if the season got cut short anyway, we'll see where this goes. The the season that the the players are suggesting time-wise would start at the end of June in run until the end of October. If that's going to happen with at least a two to three week kind of spring training They're going to have to get. This thing agreed to pretty quickly this week or maybe There won't be baseball this year. That would be Thing I really believe for the players. High. Get to a couple of things here in a moment, Redskins Related Reuben foster couple of thoughts on him also some followup to the fourth and fifteen discussion that we had the other day I. WanNa get to some of your tweets on that. I. Do you want just way in a little bit on what happened over the weekend? And if you WANNA, go listen to a longer version with lots of phone calls You can listen to this morning's radio show that I did at team nine eighty on twitter download the team nine eighty APP and you can listen to it. But before, I get into that I. I did want to just mentioned. Something that I'm pretty sure. I mentioned on the podcast year or so ago. I think I had this conversation with Tommy But I'm definitely part of a family that debates and has lively debates and heated arguments over a lot of different things in my immediate family with my three grown boys now most of it is sports related? You know fifty to sixty percent of the arguments, especially with two of my three boys. Are you know Lebron versus Michael? Magic or other sports related discussion They're very much into it but a lot of the discussion we add probably twenty five percent at least is political They're aware of what's going on in their world. I'm happy. Happy about that, you know they're not could totally wear and totally immersed in it, but they pay attention, and then you know the rest of it that we get into arguments, sir, discussion, or debate about his music is always a big part of it. pop culture other things religion will eventually get into a conversation if we really want to get into a topic that can be divisive but anyway That's my family extended and immediate lots of people with lots of opinions and varied opinions in perspectives Obviously I have one too but I. Bring that up because I think it was a year ago or so and I'm pretty sure. I shared this story with Tommy. I got into an argument. It wasn't a super heated argument, but somehow I came up I think Tommy and I were talking about something and Tommy said these are incredibly divisive times polarizing times, and this is the argument I'd gotten into with an extended family member, and I remember saying to that extended family member you know. I understand that we have a president that is polarizing a for sure, but you know when I hear people talk about how scary it is, and how terrified. They are living in this country right now. and how dire the situation is I just. I? You know a year ago, anyway in the midst of this conversation, I argued that. That's hyperbole you know. We had a civil war in this country, a hundred and sixty years ago. You know just over fifty years ago, half of our cities were burning to the ground in the spring and summer of nineteen sixty eight. and that was the argument a year ago. That was my that was my position. Well, certainly, things have changed a year. You know we've had a pandemic. That's caused incredible amount of death and sickness and simultaneous destruction of the economy and then last week. You know we get another one of these cases in the reaction to these cases of police brutality against African Americans in this particular case. What happened to George? Floyd Minneapolis the reaction across many of the big cities in this country, included some peaceful assembly in protest as afforded by our Constitution and some of it not so peaceful. And not necessarily resembling a protest protest of much of anything. We're learning even more about that today that you know. There are endless videos now out there of young white men. You know activists getting caught. You know essentially paying people to recap or wreaking havoc themselves and it is different what we've seen over the last you know few days certainly than it was in nineteen sixty eight, but anyway it was a bad weekend in many cities, including our city for those of you that listen and live in the DC area and I know that there are a lot of you that listen out in California L. A. I mean i. see the numbers i. I know were a lot of our listeners are and most of you listen because your redskin fans, even if you're living in different places, but you know if you're in New, York or la or Atlanta or Dallas, or Detroit or Chicago, or any of those markets cities You know it wasn't a great weekend wasn't here I'm sure that most of the people assembling peacefully intended to be but you know there were certainly a few, if not more than a few. That fucked it up for everybody. You know I don't know who these people are. I don't know who lit. The fires looted stores and vandalized some of our city's monuments. but I talked about this this morning. There's. This situation is. It's not different in African American men being treated in unfairly and inhumanely by law enforcement. We've seen this. Obviously, there's a history of it. But it's different for a couple of reasons in the reason. is you go back to a week ago tonight when George Floyd was murdered? You know there's this video that is just so clear cut. So clear-cut. I don't know many people that disagree that that video clearly shows the George Floyd was murdered by Derek. Show van, a Minneapolis police officer. A week ago tonight and I have seen the autopsy report. They that that was out yesterday. I hadn't seen it before the radio show this morning, but I was sent the part of it that apparently ran last night. The autopsy included the following. The autopsy revealed no physical findings that supported diagnosis of traumatic physio restrained relation. Mr Floyd had underlying health conditions, including coronary artery, disease and hypertensive heart disease, the combined effects of Mr Floyd being restrained by the police, underlying health conditions in any potential intoxicants in his. His system likely contributed to his death closed quote that the autopsy part of the autopsy's findings I. Can tell you this if if Derek. Show van somehow walks eventually down the road off of this that would be criminal in my view, but I'm not I'm not you know again? Be On that jury I'm not involved in the investigation I don't know nearly enough, but to me. What sort of unified people and made this particular situation unique over the last several days was everybody's unanimous feeling. Without any sort of dissent that George Floyd was murdered by this guy, Derek Show van, who wouldn't take his knee off Lloyd's neck for nine minutes. into the video was about as clear cut as any video of police brutality. We've seen you know what degree of murder murder in the third degree which was manslaughter was the initial charge. It didn't seem like enough. not after watching this poor man plead for his life. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. And then? In just heartbreaking fashion. Calling for his mother, a mother who by the way was? Had passed away years ago. To hear him on the ground with that knee on his neck, pleading for his life in calling for his mother. That was really tough to hear. Nearly nine minutes. cuffed. With Derek show vans knee forcefully on his neck. You know seemingly totally dispassionate about George Floyd's condition. you know he's dying in. People are telling this officer that he's killing him nine minutes with neon neck. It seemed to me when I heard the charges on Friday that it wasn't going to be enough to stop. any potential violence seemed to me that it was more than manslaughter. I'm not an expert on what degree of Murder Show van committed a week ago. but I'm pretty sure that Derek Show van contributed significantly degeorge Floyd's death. and everybody else knows it to that. That's that's what makes this sort of unique. I haven't heard. Many people disagree were all in agreement. You know there's no dissent on this white black doesn't matter. The whole world seems to agree to George Floyd was killed by Derek Show van. The whole world believes it show van should be prosecuted to the fullest fullest extent of the law. Every person of authority in this country that I watched over the weekend or read over the weekend. You know every chief of police both were tired in current any resume law enforcement person you know that weighed in on TV or print they all agree. There's universal agreement among everybody that George Floyd was murdered, and the killer was Derek Show van the police officer. Doesn't matter what your political affiliation ez-zor. You know. What your your your race or gender or ages? You know I haven't heard one person say other way Wisey and this isn't one of those situations where you have. You know some wait and see voice out there. Nobody's waiting for the back story or the context on this one, and maybe we're starting to get it with some of the autopsy scene. results in who knows where that arrows pointed. Nobody's trying to rationalize or justify the office officers behavior, not my circle of life. Nobody has said that this was okay. You know everybody is in agreement that show van was aggressive, excessive and unsympathetic, and was a bad cop with eighteen prior complaints. There's no controversy on this point till you're nationwide. Worldwide combination, get condemnation for Derek Show, van. That's what makes us when a little bit different I think, there's other there are other reasons by the way everybody also agrees that the other police officers that stood by and let this happen must be prosecuted as well universal agreement on that point. You know it's. It's every police chief in America on board with all of that. I think these guys are going to end up in jail for a long time I. think that's what they deserve based on that video. You know and the other thing is. that. Most of us most normal people and I know normal is subjective, but most normal people Hopefully you know who I'm referring to. and most of those people are you I think. almost everybody's in agreement on the right to assemble peacefully in protest, and almost everyone is a is an agreement also that rioting and looting is a bad thing. You know black people don't like rioting and looting. White people don't like rioting and looting, not many of any race disagree on this point, nobody normal regardless of their personal circumstance once unrest. You know at the expense of innocent people in innocent businesses. Everybody seems to be agreement to that. You. Know there's history between law enforcement and African Americans, and it's been bad. White people know this. You know despite that the numbers and the the studies by you know Harvard and others. Most of US understand that the historical relationship between the police and African Americans has put African American men in particular on the defensive. They mentioned this and mentioned this in the past, and they talked about it on the radio show, and this is always been again. One of those things that's really. Heartbreaking for anybody that has empathy. You know what a Black Guy! My Age has to think about when getting pulled over is not what I had to think about. What a black man or woman for that matter has to teach their children about the relationship with police in how a simple traffic violation can go wrong if it's not handled properly. Is Not exactly what I've had to teach my children. I recognize that. Most? Reasonable people are in agreement on the big things this week. You know the big things. George Floyd murdered history between law enforcement, and African Americans not good. You know looting and rioting bad reaction. you know the these things are the big things. And we were all in agreement on all of these things, and I'm not suggesting that we haven't all been in agreement on prior situations. You know any of these other previous incidents whether you know. It was Freddie. Gray or Philander, Casteel, or any of these you know, I. I think part of it is because the video was so utterly awful in convincing. But while you know, most people are in agreement on the big things. We still went from total agreement on the big things total agreement you know based on race gender age any demographic description you wanNA. Come up with. And yet this incident led to total chaos is a follow up. You know I don't know how we get from total agreement on all of these things to we. Our cities have been the last few days and nights. You know specific to this incident. There are some things that happened early on that I think we're factors. I think there were some mistakes in Minneapolis. You know. There was a perceived delay in getting the charge against show van, which didn't come until Friday. There was the charge of murder in the third degree, which for a lot of people didn't seem to be enough again I. Don't know how you go about charging someone for murder in every state city. Jurisdiction you know they're all different animals I'm sure there I know. There are risks going to quickly and potentially charging someone inaccurately, and all of that I understand that you know. They claim to have left room for change from third degree to something else, but. It's lauter wasn't perceived by many as enough. and then there was the lack of charges charges against the other officers, which still haven't come I. Don't believe not as of now, so all of that didn't help. But you know. Really side story to the big issue, which is just race. Not, just police brutality towards minorities. There's a lot more to all of this other racial inequality. That that other racial inequalities always apart of these emotional response equations. And, then by the way in this particular situation, add to it a pandemic lost jobs mass unemployment economic hardship you all leading to by the way lots of free time for lots of people. You know this was a bit of a powder keg situation. Just because of the environment. We were in a because of the last three months. Peaceful protests in these situations often devolve into. You know awful nights like the nights we've seen. It's not unique to see this happen. But again the irony, everybody's you know normal seems to be an agreement. You know he was murdered. Protest peacefully is a good thing. Burning looting is not necessarily a good thing. Were mostly in agreement on all that and yet. We have these situations. I I will just tell you real quickly to finish up the things over the weekend. That made me. You know get emotionally upset. You know starting with continuing to watch the video of George Floyd. It's heartbreaking. There's nothing worse than that. I mean seeing him cry out for his mother. Twice as he realizes he's doing. Is Jest so terrible. It's so awful. And I read stories about him over the weekend. There was a really good story about him. In Houston newspaper about. How he was you know a good Christian but a participating Christian with young people and in his church, and he had recently moved to Minneapolis in every single person that spoke about him, said that this was a good guy. I don't know how he got a fake twenty dollar bill in his hands. Who knows I mean he could have gotten that from. Anybody will probably find out at some point whether or not. He legitimately broke the law or unintentionally broke the law. But the story of George Floyd is just awful. That video is awful. I get upset. And angry when these things come up because we still haven't figured out how to root, out. Those in law enforcement that capable of what Derek Show van did, and by the way others who are capable of less, but still unacceptable behavior towards minorities. We we we. We haven't figured this out after all these years. We haven't routed it out. Is it systemic I'll leave that up to somebody else? They're certainly bad. You know bad apples in the group. And I also get equally upset that law enforcement overall and you know after these situations are painted with this broad brush as if all of our bad, it's an unbelievable profession in my belief. Is that the overwhelming majority of policemen and women? Are there to help us regardless of skin color. The cops out there last night and the night before. You know trying to keep the peace our white. They're black. They're Hispanic their native American there. Many other ethnicities in the majority of them are in agreement with the people that they are face to face with on all of the big things. That's the irony. Like, very you are. You're watching this stuff over the weekend and you're like most of those people that are trying to keep the peace are in agreement with those that are peacefully protesting. I trust the police. I think George Floyd was murdered by a bad cop. And you can say I. Trust the police because I'm white. That's fine. But I think most of you. Regardless of your race would agree that there are more good cops than bad. Our experiences with law enforcement based on our color or completely different. Most of us. Regardless of color of understood that I can't put myself into your shoes into into an African American shoes. I see I. I'm not experienced it, but I'm certainly aware of it. Insensitive to it. I get very upset and did over the weekend when I see you know a lot of the mayhem. Being caused by people that to me. Intuitively aren't there to protest? You know George Floyd's death peacefully. They're opportunists. They're agitators, their attention seekers. You know one of the things that we're learning even today. you know in the in recent hours here? Is that a lot of what's gone on here over the last few days. is you know white activists. I mean we've seen the pictures. We've seen the video there is. They're just as many white people out in in the violent portions of of the protests. Then there are black. You know and we're seeing that. Some of these wight activists weather left-winger right wing. You know they're getting caught. You know they're getting caught on video. and it's it's it's different. I'm not saying like this one is totally different than the last one or the, but it certainly different than nineteen sixty eight. But yeah. I get upset when I see. People taking a legitimate cause that should be highlighted through peaceful protests in it into a a lawbreaking rampage that hurts people and people's businesses innocent people. This Ki-. This can't be allowed. It can't be in over the last few days more then I can. Remember was allowed. I mean the news the other night about that Minneapolis police precinct, giving in per the mayor's orders, demonstrators, entering and the police, abandoning their precinct at the request of the mayor. I mean what country is this? Here was the official statement from the police spokesman. Quote police cleared the third precinct when demonstrators forcibly entered in ignited several fires, Mayor Jacob Fry city made the decision to pull police out of the precinct. He said you know brick and mortar's not as important as life. He called the vandalism and arson unacceptable, but vowed that offers would St- officers would still patrol the community served by the third precinct we will continue to do our jobs in that area closed quote. I mean. The most troubling aspect of the last week was the video and George Floyd being murdered. To me the second most disturbing part of the last week. Was that a police precinct? Conceded submitted. To demonstrators who came in and burn the precinct to the ground? Are you kidding me? I mean I'm sorry, but that Mayor Week. Week. I still can't believe that that happened. You know how much of what followed in Minneapolis was because of them, not resisting the police basically lay down their arms and left. Are you kidding me? And I'm watching Saturday night I'm watching these These goons attack the CNN building in Atlanta throwing rocks bricks. Firecrackers at police. and. And I mentioned this this morning radio show. There's this one duty young white guy with a skateboard. He's banging escape skateboard against the glass Middle Finger. Ring you know the riot police and look I'm not an expert. Right control I don't know what they're supposed to do or not supposed to do. I can just tell you as a viewer. You know the fact that nothing was done was infuriating. I this guy has got a skateboard. He's giving the Middle Finger to the riot control bashing in the glass of the CNN building. He's vandalizing and just let him get away with it. But you know if you're a police precinct. You know your mayor can't order you. If people come in with the intent to burn your precinct to the ground, you arrest them. And you throw them into jail. You don't allow that to happen. I'm not a big fan of criticizing the police in a lot of these situations, which you know i. all I heard all weekend long as I flip stations back and forth, the media tends to. Do you know they're being berated? They're being attacked in many of these non peaceful protests situations. I'm sure there are few excessive police reactions, but most of it looks justified from where I. Sit now again. You know the irony. Is that most of the police in pro in most of the protesters I think are all in agreement with one another, but the troublemakers need to be dealt with because they seem to be coming in. As not necessarily interested in protesting George Floyd's death are protesting brutal unfair treatment of African Americans. That's not what they were there for. They were there to to cause mayhem I don't know if they're leftists. Rightists, white supremacists and Tika I. Don't know that anybody knows for sure. How could you at this point and you know that's going to take some serious investigation? I would think, but who really cares. You know what's clear is that there was some organized mayhem behind the last several days you had pallets bricks being dropped off on corners in cities. You know that's not run of the mill. You know somebody losing their mind over the death of George Floyd now. There's some of that, too. But there's some organization and then there. Are you know the local troublemakers in knuckleheads? That are taking advantage of the opportunities. You know the immediate solution comes from Minneapolis where the other men that were. There are a week ago tonight. Need to be charged and you know we'll take it from there. I can only imagine if there's a trial, you know nine months from now year from now and that Guy Derek Show van doesn't get significant prison time. What's going to happen in this country? But There's a long time between now and then anyway. quick word about Roman. If, you were to guess on average. How many days people in the US have to wait to see a doctor? What would you say a week?

So I wanted to follow up on this fourth and fifteen real quickly from Friday to conversation about the fourth in fifteen ruling being tabled by the NFL, not even getting voted on, and I don't think it's going to pass. I thought it was I. Don't think it will now. I mentioned that. The play as proposed to the League by the Eagles was to be an UN timed play, and I mentioned on Friday that. I didn't understand why that would be. Because the onside kick is actually a timed play in several of you actually reached out to me and mentioned an an and wrote to me why that would be, and it made total sense, and here's the explanation and I. Don't know if this was part of the proposal and I just missed it or many of you picked up on something that I didn't pick up on good for you, which is? If the team that is using the fourth and fifteen alternative to an onside kick ends up being the team that just took the lead, so let's just say a team scores a touchdown to take a twenty eight twenty four lead with five seconds left in the game. They may choose the alternative to an onside kick. And then run a play that takes five seconds so that you never have to kick off and give the other team chance. They could run out the clock effectively. Yes, that makes total sense to me makes total sense Um, so that's why it was proposed as an untimely down It's preventive. It's a preventative measure as Andrew tweeted me and several others tweeted me to. To Stop teams that take lead from running the clock out now you could just make a part of the rule be that if you have the lead, you can't choose the and fifteen alternative to the onside kick. You could do that, too, and then you'd be forced to kick off, but anyway Thank you for. That wanted to talk real quickly about Reuben Foster Jack del Rio in in a recent video conference call with reporters, said about Reuben foster quote I think he's done a good job of trying to be involved in the meetings and we've approached it as though he'll be there meaning be their training camp then we'll see whether we get the clearance or not for him to actually go closed. Quote Jack del Rio said last week. He hasn't or someone reported. Excuse me Jack. Del Rio said whether it was on that caller after the call that foster hasn't been medically cleared. Never remember the fifth year option on foster's rookie deal was not picked up by the team. I'm really interested as to whether or not Reuben foster in their mind. is a part of the equation. Because Ruben foster comes with baggage as we know, he's also coming off a very serious injury. You know this was an injury. That was combined torn. ACL Torn MC, L. and then nerve damage as well. You know there was a report last year that the nerve damage was significant, and that he would miss more than just the entire twenty nineteen season Ron Rivera going through a culture change. We've heard Jon. Bostick name mentioned a bunch. You know. We heard Jack. Del Rio mentioned almost every linebacker last week with the exception of of Reuben foster NATO He did talk about Ryan Anderson. Some of you, said He. He didn't mention Ryan Anderson in the one quote. He didn't mention Ryan Anderson, but that's because he had already been asked about Ryan. Anderson and weighed in on Ryan. Anderson I. Think Ryan Anderson a big part of their plan I don't know that for sure just makes sense to me because to me Ryan. Anderson looks more like a four three outside linebacker, then a three four edge outside linebacker I am not sure about Reuben. Foster I. have this gut feeling that he's going to be given the opportunity. He's healthy to go and if he isn't that. There's another season potentially where he ends up on injured reserve. To start the year, and maybe they sort of defer or push the decision back to later on in the year. But I think one of the reasons. Thomas Davis was signed in one of the reasons. We've already heard Ron. Rivera referred Jon Bostick as a leader. we have already heard Jack del Rio single out KP L. as he referred to my to look it up. It's Kevin Pierre Louis the under the free agent that they signed out of out of Chicago from the bears. I think we all believe that coal holcomb has a really good chance to be sort of a weakside linebacker with that speed, I, mean Hell del. Rio even mentioned Khaliq Hudson their fifth rounder in the draft before mentioning before mentioning Reuben Foster. He's got Josh Harvey Clemens. He's got Shawn Deehan. Hamilton. I am going to just guess right now. That Reuben foster is not going to be part of the twenty twenty one twenty twenty season, when it begins probably for the first half of the season. If they have to make a decision on him, it's going to be put off until later in the year with him on injured reserve you know may be designated for return at some point. Maybe it's designated for return and release I forget how that actually works. but I'm just getting the sense more and more that that Reuben. Foster is either. is either a candidate to be put on injured reserve or maybe a candidate to be released if he's healthy. He's talented and we've heard Jon Allen and others talk about how talented he is, and how excited some you know that certainly played with them at Alabama are about his possibilities, but again you know other than Ron Rivera. Referring to him, you know recently and just it's A. It's a pretty short quote. You know he's done a good job of trying to be involved in the meetings. Meetings, and we'll see whether he gets the clearance for him to actually go, so we'll, we'll see on that. I think the Redskins have some depth at linebacker. I just don't know if it's quality depth. They have a lot of players in. It'll have to sort itself out. The quality depth I believe comes up front I. Think many of you believe that to be true as well. We're done for the day. kept it short today back tomorrow with Tommy.

Picture of you, putting the settings tab, and because Tucker co Tucker and the settings tab because you guys are milking me dry, man. I'm running out of cards and pictures and press passes so kudos to you. I'll let it go for one more week. Also, I like to change things up every once in a while. So there's been a lot of talk about the dolphins and then potentially tanking. Let's do it. It's big Showtime are Mondo sow Garo are they really taking. So I very rarely do this. And that is talk with the beat writer of an individual team year on the Ross Tucker football podcast because this is a national podcast, and you guys come for your national NFL news. And so a lot of you don't have an interest in this specific team will y'all initiative specific team, but it's all different teams. But I just feel like with what's going on with the Miami Dolphins this off season. I think this is sort of a league wide issue and might be talked about even more a year from now as it relates to Trevor Lawrence the Clemson quarterback when he will be eligible to play his final year of college football and then enter the NFL draft. That's I guess if he's not playing in the XFL who knows but any rate I wanna talk Miami Dolphins. And I want to do with our. Window sale Garo. He's been covering the team since nineteen ninety does a terrific job for the Miami Herald, he comes on my radio show all the time. He's probably like our number one. Most frequent guy we bother. Do we bother you too much to come on Sirius XM Amman feel bad? But the dolphins are just in the news a lot this off season. Now. Now, it's my pleasure anytime Rawson because you pay me Zorba rates. I come on all the time, and it just balloons my Bank accounts. Really make sure you're checking them out on Twitter at our Monday, sow Garo SA L G U E R O. So I ask before we dive into this current ration- the dolphins you've been covering the team since nineteen ninety and maybe by ninety Marino. Maybe it was a little bit different. Not quite like what it was like an eighty three eighty four eighty five eighty six. But when I think about this are not in kidding. If I could be one player at one time in the history of the NFL. I think about like Joe name it in the sixties in New York that had to be pretty amazing. And I think about Marino, especially in the eighties. But to a lesser extent, I guess early nineties in Miami. It's unbelievable are Mondo. A how many national dolphins fans there are and every time I talked to him. I asked him. Why are you a dolphins fan? And they almost always ninety nine percent say Dan Marino. And I've made the argument or Mondo, and I don't know how you could calculate this. I think he is the single most he is responsible for the most fans of any team of any single individual in NFL history. Well, there's no doubt about that. That nationally you know, when the dolphins go on the road. There's a lot of people that show up to the hotels, and so forth and autograph seekers wearing Dan Marino jerseys. There's they don't show up where a, you know, Lawrence Timmons jerseys. That's for sure. And so yeah, there's a huge following of. There's a generation as a matter of fact of dolphins fans, they grew up watching Dan Marino play by the way that same generation also grew up with Don Shula on the sidelines. And they looked at that book and pair and thought that's the team. That's the way that it should happen. They were and I'm gonna say this, and it's going to be controversial especially in New England. They were Tom Brady and Bill bell. Check without the Super Bowls. And I think it was last year the year before we're Brady and Bella check combined to finally overtake duo for the most coach quarterback combined win. I think the number was one ninety the duo that they overtook were Don Shula and Dan Marino. And again, obviously neither Shula Norma Reno together where able to win a Super Bowl. So they don't stand that test against Bella check and Brady but clearly in that time the dolphins were national team in an elite team in the NFL. They were one of those teams that the NFL always wanted to put on Monday night football. In fact, they were the winningest Monday night football team in the NFL one point. They were always on prime time. It was it was a different era. That's. For sure. So what was it like before? I get into this year's dolphins. Which is why I really brought you on. But what was it like to cover in particular Marino, you know, especially early in his especially when you first got there. Ninety ninety one hundred three what was it like covering Marino. Use cool. It was a different time. You know nowadays. Look the quarterback talks once a week to the press, and that's it and typically because of free agency because of the way things are in the NFL right now, he's often gone in four years, and you don't really get to know the guy, and he doesn't really want to get to know you. With Dama Reno. He was there. And he was there for a long time. And he was there every day. And there was no I'm only talking on Wednesdays. You know, he was at his locker you could go up to him. And and you know, what's up, dude? Was you know that kind of stuff and joke around I'll tell you the truth in the nineties. Ross the south Florida media would excuse me would have a touch football games on the dolphins practice field. And the dolphins had a quarterback named Scott Mitchell. And they had another quarterback named Doug Peterson desiring a bell and one team Mitchell would draw plays for one team and Peterson would drop place for another team. And the guy that was seemingly always jealous about it was who. Oh, yeah. Dan Marino because he couldn't get in on the accident drop plays where either team. So it was just a totally different dynamic, and it was fun. And it was you know, they were fun to cover. I love it. Now, let's get to the current dolphins. Who I guess you could say are fun to cover in a different way for what they're doing right now. I want you to best verbalize what the Miami Dolphins plan is for the two thousand nineteen season. Well, and I wrote this today in the Miami Herald Ross so the Miami Dolphins more than any NFL t. They need a starting elite franchise quarterback. And their plan is to possibly be so putrid this season. So as to be a top the draft in twenty twenty so that in that year, they are in position to draft. You know, the most elite of the quarterback that coming out like, you know, to tag of a low self for a Alabama or just in Herbert for Oregon and the plan, and it's amazing that I just spoke that out. I couldn't believe that. I wrote it when I put it in the paper because most of the time for the last almost thirty years that I've covered this team. The idea of not having a quarterback and not addressing the need immediate. Really would be ludicrous. It would be crazy. If you don't have it. Go get it their planners. We might go. Get it. Oh, you might have just weighed a year who'll be fine. It's just it's it's bizarre. So how do you know that like how do you know that their plan is to lose to try to get Tongo via Loa or Herbert? Okay. So this was not something that just happened. Obviously. I don't I can't account for other reporters. But I do have some sources that I built up over the years within and without the organization, and they told me in December. We're done with Ryan tannehill. And then they told me in January. We're done with Ryan tannehill. And we're not gonna sign you know, any significant quarterback replacement this year in free agency. And then I was told later on where done and we're going to look to twenty twenty. And you know, you kind of when you're told this stuff, you you. I guess you have to well what I did was I tried to get as much confirmation as possible. But the idea that this would be happening was a little strange. And so you try to get other people to tell you the same stuff to hear this is ring drew for everybody. And it was. And then I see that other people are starting to report the same stuff as well nationally. And so now, we're all kind of out there reporting this stuff and then the off season begins and the dolphins trade Ryan tannehill. And the dolphins are looking at tyrod Taylor as his replacement. And they can't land tyrod Taylor who goes to become the backup in San Diego because they didn't wanna pay tyrod Taylor starter money. And then they're looking at teddy Bridgewater. To sign him. But they can't land teddy Bridgewater because he wants starter money, and they're not paying starter money or offering starter money. And then they signed Ryan Fitzpatrick. Who Chris Greer, the general manager himself said, you know, what Ryan Fitzpatrick nice guy? Good dude in the locker room. But there's nobody on the NFL thinks he's the long-term answer quarterback. The general manager said this of the dolphins. And it's true. He doesn't need to apologize for saying it because it's true. But that's what he's saying about his own starting quarterback in twenty nineteen. And so at this point it's becoming increasingly clear that they're not trying to upgrade. And then they lose infre- agency or through cuts that they've made. Let's see they're starting and leading receiver. They're leading sacker their second-leading Sacher their leading rusher. Starting guard. Starting right tackle. And the point of it is they there's been an exodus from south Florida from that roster. And I get it. Sometimes you need to cut bait. Sometimes you need to move on. But typically what happens is in the offseason teams look to upgrade. Well, upgrade means you gotta bring somebody in dolphins. The people that they brought in and free agents are not starters are not stars by any measure in other words, they feel they've created a bunch of holes on the roster and filled none. And by the way, this was a roster that already had its problems because the authors were seven and nine last year. They're not a good team. They the roster needed upgrading. They not done that upgrading. But but even more so than that almost. On, you know, isn't it some of the comments that Stephen Ross has made you know, that have made it really clear, whether it was why he fired gays or even I saw recently where he said, you know, he hopes the rebuild they can rebuild in two years. But he asked to be realistic. That's not the same as saying they're going to intentionally lose. But I mean when when when an owner comes out and says, the rebuild going to be at least two years, you got to be realistic. Like, I said that's not saying that they're intentionally trying to lose. But that's a pretty good clue of at least at the Zab -solutely a rebuild. And I know he said a couple of other things that really caught your attention, including about why he fired geese. Right. So the day after the season he did. In fact, fire the head coach, Adam gays, and he was asked why and his answer was because I don't want to win and win. Now, he's in his fourth year and fourth year head coaches wanna win and need to win. And then at the owners meetings which was last week as we tape this today, he said he was just he being at him. His career arc situation. What is was that a different place than what the franchises situation was the franchise, obviously, what he was meaning is taking a step or fifty back, and I don't gaze is trying to move forward. And so. When he says things like this. And when in that same press conference that I mentioned earlier he talked about three and thirteen and how how hopes that doesn't go to three and thirteen. But if that's what it has to happen, then so be it three and thirteen. That's that's not an area code. That's a record. And that's that's bad. I guess I appreciate the honesty, and I don't really have any problem with their strategy. And what they're doing. I guess my question, though, is, you know, how do they sell the team to the fans 'cause I guess I just it's so rare to hear an owner say that like when you hear a guy say two year rebuild how're the fans feeling about that? Because usually an owner would never say that because he doesn't want them to not renew their luxury box for that year or say, you know, what I'm not renewing my tickets this year. Maybe I'll get him for twenty twenty. Right. Well, the the dolphins are in any unique situation, and they're not at the point of pain yet. And the situation is as follows first of all. Steve Ross is done a great job of refurbishing hard rock stadium. It looks rate. It has a very European soccer vibe to it. It's a cool place. They added a tennis facility next door in twenty twenty one team will be there for training camp as well. It's a cool place. And so people have been going there, even though the product on the field has not been good. And that has carried over this off season to a certain degree despite the messaging. So there are tickets sold for twenty nineteen. That's not the issue. The issue is gonna be come November and come December. When or if depending on who you believe excuse me, the dolphins are whatever. Three and ten or something how many people in south Florida? When the weather is gorgeous in November and December Sonny without a cloud in the sky. And it's sixty eight degrees out. Or seventy are people going to say let me go on a Sunday afternoon to watch the hideous Miami Dolphins. Or are they going to say I got something else? I can find that I can do because there's a restaurant or to in Fort Lauderdale and south beach that I can have some fun at there's a bar to maybe I should get back to church and pray for my team on Sunday. Instead, maybe I should just be with the family. Maybe I'll go to the beach hang out by the pool go to museums. Do a Jillian things that there are to do here. Other than go take in a bad football game from the home team. That's on the test of what the Ross is saying and planning now because when he looks out from his owners box and sees. Wide swath of empty seats. That's going to be very interesting. Yeah. And so for me, I I actually think more teams should consider this. When you consider how important the quarterback position is and what's happened with the Colt franchise when it happened to be the one year that Payton got hurt they were able to get lock and be the worst team. I mean that totally changes the entire fate of the franchise for decades. I mean, NBA teams take and they're not even guaranteed to get the number one guy in the NFL. You can get the number one guy. I guess the point. I don't like get about that though is why would you sign Ryan Fitzpatrick? I mean, the guy's never played a stretch of games where he doesn't at least look awesome and win a couple of them. So it just seems like if you're trying to lose, and I know they wouldn't say that I know the players gonna play their best and the coaches are going to try to win. But it's obviously a full scale. Rebuild winning in twenty nineteen not the primary goal. It just seems like Fitzpatrick's the wrong guy. Like Fitzpatrick can be like, oh, yeah. You tell me we were trying to lose. All right, watch this. I just I feel like he's the wrong guy. Right. There's been a lot of believe it or not there's been concern about that among some dolphin fan communities because Ryan Fitzpatrick like you say, you know, in his career he has a six interception game. He also has a six touchdown game. So that's what you're probably going to get you're going to get really good or really really terrible and the dolphins want one. But not the other, you know, and that's interesting. But here's the way, it was explained to me. This is organic this quote unquote tank that they're doing it's we're Ganic in that look they don't have an answer, right tackle. They don't have an answer at guard. They don't have any none dressers. They lack a starting corner. Opposite Davian Howard. It's a very young team. I wrote the other day they're gonna add like twenty five undrafted free agents after the draft. And some of those guys by the way are going to make the team. It's going to be a young inexperienced not premium team is Ryan Fitzpatrick comes into that locker room. He is going to do everything that he can to try to win. But that's what the dolphins need from that position. Because you don't wanna poison the locker room, you need someone that is functional at least at that position. If they had brought in or set. Calls for you know, someone like Luke Falk who hasn't taken any snaps in the NFL or or someone else of that ilk. Then it would be we'd be going from bizarre to all out clown show. And they don't wanna be the all out clown show. They're happy with bizarre. And so that's where they're at that, you know, the head coach frying Flora's, he doesn't wanna lose. He wants to win. And he's going to do everything he can to win and encourage winning. But the losing won't be because they're trying I'm purpose to lose the losing will be because they're not fit to win. They don't have the Reese they haven't stocked up enough to actually compete on many levels and the draft which is coming up in three weeks from today. You know, it's it's not gonna be enough to fill. All those needs. There will this will be a team that you know, just isn't good enough. It wasn't good enough last year when they were trying and now they've taken a step or five back from that. So it's organic as far as they're concerned. And adding Fitzpatrick is part of the you know, we're not gonna just totally lay down we need someone who's at least functional the position. That that might be the that might be my fantasy team name this year organic losing organic tank. That's amazing are Mondo. I love it. I appreciate the time. Lot of dolphins fans nationally. I think a lot of you already follow our Mondo. He's got seventy thousand followers on Twitter. It's got to be about as many as any beat writer that I know at our Mondo sow Garo does such a terrific job. Always great to talk with you. And like I said this is a rarity. But I think this year's dolphins deserved the national treatment. Thank you are Mondo. It's my pleasure. Ross anytime. Terrific stuff there with our Mondo south Garo be fascinating to see what the dolphins do in the draft next week. Maybe even trade down. Speaking of terrific.

It is a boss move. I promise. Jeez. Pretty busy weekend. Rawson the NFL start with some contract stuff. Vikings wide receiver. Adam feeling gets a new four year sixty four million dollar extension. Patriots DB Patrick Chung a one year extension. Gives him six million up front panther sign wide receiver. Chris HOGAN the jet. Sign running back time on Gumri and the falcons signed tackle Tyler Davidson. Right. So I'll go in order. They're bright. Adam feeling was under contract for two more years because the Vikings gave him a contract, you know, when he started to first show. He was good and they locked him up, which is smart because even though he got that four years sixty four million dollar extension and more bonus money that contract still counts the one that he got before. So he gets rewarded for two fantastic seasons. And the team gets him locked up even longer which is great because he's a terrific player. Chung? What a what a second stat act? What a second stanza. He's had with the patriots. They love him. I mean, he was under contract for two more years. But he's another guy that you're gonna say Shen realize number one we want him here for a while. And number two, he probably does deserve more money. So they gave him a bump that gives them like four million dollars more this year than he was supposed to the Panthers signing. Chris hogan. What's interesting to me about that is just you look at the patriots receiving core. And it's like brutal. Right. I mean, it's not good. And yet it doesn't seem like they made much of an effort to bring back HOGAN, not agreed signed for him jet signing running back time Montgomery. Fits kind of as a backup to lay on bell. I think that's fine. And I'm surprised the saints didn't show and that more other teams didn't show more interest in Tyler Davidson doesn't bring a whole lot of pass rush to the table. But still a starting detachable for most of the last three years. Kind of surprising that more teams one interested in Davidson to me. It's talk on the discipline front the NFL fine. Redskins linebacker Ruben foster to game checks. The eagles issued a statement after Jalen mills was arrested for disorderly for disorderly. What does that Ross affray affray? Af R A Y. I do have a college degree. But I'm not familiar with affray. Are you kidding me? You don't know. What that word me? Now. I don't you've never heard of afraid before. No. Oh my gosh. We'll say the rest of the thing. All right. He was arrested for disorderly affray after reportedly getting to a fight with NBA player. Devin Robinson, heb ri-. Yeah. Right. When that came out I had to look up. What affray was I had no idea, dude. So why did you put it in there? What's that? Why'd you put it in there? No. Because that's what makes it funny. That's what this is all on the show. Don't try to get this off the show. I'm like, I said I said, hey, Brian like that. Because I thought it was funny. No, it's an instance of fighting in a public place that disturbs the peace. I never heard of that either bright ever. That's why I was just busting your chops. When you didn't hear of it making it sound like it was ridiculous that you never heard about it. I never heard of it either never in my life, disorderly affray. So I just explained to you. Evidently, Devon Robinson had to go to the hospital. It sounds like he got the the worst of that fight. I have a question for you. And this may be why they may be why it was disorderly affray. I guess if like both people. Agree to be in the fight. It's not really a salt. Right. Like like, if both people go outside they wanna fight everybody around knows. They wanna fight. I guess that's not really a sold. It would more just be a fray, right? I mean, if if both people are like wanting to be a part of physical in, you know, interaction is that really assault or is it more. I guess that's why it's a free. That's my guest here. I am listener. We'll tell me that I'm wrong. But that was why I thought it meant afraid because it's not like, you know, he hit somebody that didn't want. It's like, no, let's go outside. Let's step outside. So, but I guess I was I was gonna say why is that even illegal, but I guess it's still like disturbing. It's more about disturbing the peace than it is the fact that they, you know, hit each other agreed. Moving on. Geez. I didn't even say my thoughts on it. I didn't even say my thought so not good for Jalen mills. Because the eagles have a bunch of DB's. We'll see what comes out of it. Ruling out. Good for Devon Robinson the wizards announced right away. They're not going to renew his contract. And yet to go to the hospital Reuben foster down there in DC. That's like that's a win for the Redskins that he won't miss any games. I mean, they're adding him to an already defense is getting better and better. So he's just fine to game checks for the issues. You had in the off season. All right now. Some other news, including interesting comments from raiders general manager, Mike Mayock and Brett farve deadline. Dave Russell Wilson the Seahawks. Aaron Donald donates a million dollars to his alma mater, and you got to explain this. When I don't understand this one. The af that doesn't exist anymore will not let players sign. Cfl contracts wrote. So muck may just said gruden's that doom don't mess it up, dude, which I think is weird because everybody believes that grooms the one still calling the shots there. So that's a little bit bizarre. Brett farve said he thinks that might McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers should have one more together. I think that's kinda hard to dispute at this point. But I'm sure it'll get attention deadline day for Russell Wilson the Seahawks. We will obviously talk about that with Andrew Brandt on Wednesday. We'll see what happens as when when recording this little bit later than normal eleven thirty two AM eastern time. Peter King said that you know, the deadlines not just for a long term deal this year. It's for a long term deal period. Otherwise, he'll just go year to you. I don't know if I really believe that. I don't know if that's something that I really believe. But that's at least what they're saying kudos to Aaron Donald. I mean, that's amazing million dollars to your alma mater. And obviously he feels like they were they made a big impact on his life. So the af has these contracts that allows players to get out of them to sign with the NFL. But. It doesn't allow them to get out of it to sign with other pro sports leagues. And so even though the league went belly up supposedly Bri, they're looking at those contracts as assets for bankruptcy proceedings. So I have no idea. I just know it's an absolute mess and disgrace. Among everybody that's involved that those guys can't sign on to get work that really they earned by performed in the I mean, these guys they're not making millions of dollars. They're trying to make a living for their families playing pro football. And now they can't sign what the fell because of a legal dispute, frankly that makes me sick. And that's something else that Andrew Nye will definitely discuss on Wednesdays. Ross Tucker football podcast. We also might discuss Wrangler. You know, why Brian why Ross because Wrangler are re. Real comfortable jeans. No one knows this better than Wrangler the authority on jeans using their expertise in comfort and durability. We should done by. Let me see if you're reading my mind. What should we have done? Look we've done better better. Segue. Who I don't know? I don't know. I'm thinking I'm drawing a blank here. What right when I was talking about Brett farve. I should've Wrangler. Read like when I was talking about Brett farve. I should've been speaking Brett farve, bright Wrangler real, comfortable jeans. I should have done it. I wasn't thinking about see. That's the thing. I've been doing this for years. Lots of podcasts you guys send in your spread the word via social media? No. You don't send that and you send in your sponsor confirmation. Emails when you go ahead and take advantage of any of our sponsors. And you're eligible to win the contest at the end of the week for a signed picture card or press passed or whatever same for those of you that spread the word by social media. And you'd think I'd get better being like, dude. There's a pro farve comment. We gotta do Wrangler. Read. I love telling people about Wrangler. I should mention that with the farve. So no, I screwed up. So now, I have to tell you separately that you. Need comfortable jeans? Wrangler are those jeans they legitimately or the type of genes that you wear when you just hanging out or playing touch football like far or even when you're going out Wrangler real, comfortable jeans. And I'm not real comfortable Bri with the fact that I didn't do better with that segue. I will try to do better next time, which will be to Morrow with the college draft podcast. I've got Dane Brookler from yet. Let it coming on to talk about the beast. Plus, there's more and more talk that maybe the cardinals won't actually take Cuyler Murray. We'll see what Dane has to say about those things, and I'll get his thoughts on guys he's higher and lower than that's the most entertaining thing this time of year.

The mad. Giveaway season. Let's roll Bri. Oh, I weak twelve. We already did three of the games the Thursday games. We talked about them on Friday. So Ross your thoughts your takeaways from all the Sunday games in week twelve. So I guess a couple of different thoughts. Right. So number one. Philip rivers was amazing. Any of this talk, though about MVP conversation, blah, blah, blah is everybody forgetting that he cost them the game last week with a horrible interception. And then going the wrong way on a hand off. And then spike throwing the ball on the ground against the Broncos. And that was a game that by the way would have eliminated the Broncos essentially and would have put the chargers in a much better position. So no on IX nay the Philip rivers MVP snake talk. Although I will say this. He was awesome yesterday. I mean, they were down ten nothing for him. The have one incompletion the whole game. That was incredible. I mean, he was really really impressive. So credit words do by the way, Bri the whatever. That's what pig Latin. They call. I believe. So yes. What what what does it? Even mean. What does it come from? You have any idea where comes from? I have no idea. I mean, obviously, it comes from pigs in ancient times right pig, Latin da. But no, I have no idea. I've no idea why. Yeah. And it's not really a thing. Right to joke. Right. Maybe to some it's more of joke. But I mean, like it's not like some people actually spoke that way. It's like I feel like it's just a way to like be able to say something, maybe your your seven year old one stand it once she can start spelling, but you still want to be able to. I don't know. I think that's a really interesting thing because everybody knows what it is. I think but it's kind of a joke. Anyway, what's not a joke is several teams? I think almost save their season. I would say the Broncos save their season at least for a week, right? Like their season. At least goes on for a week. They still have a shot. Same with the Philadelphia Eagles. And I think to a lesser extent the Seattle Seahawks the Minnesota Vikings like I think if the eagles and the Broncos lost they would have been out absolutely out. Meanwhile for the Seahawks and the Vikings, they would have been really been hurting. Really been hurting. But they all found a way to get a win and really prolong their season for another week. I mean, the Vikings Inciarte you're going to be in it now now, but the eagles and and Broncos kind of survive and advance till next week. Meanwhile, man that the giants are done and the Packers are just about done. I mean, they could theoretically run the table and get some help. But I don't really envision that happening. I also think to the other noteworthy things I guess Ruben foster getting arrested again and is nine is releasing him. And just hearing Kyle Shanahan talking about that two things because remember this in April. Remember this on the couch draft podcast guys which record on Tuesdays. When we talk about red flags for players, whether it's medical or off the field or character. Whatever they not always. But they almost always. As come to roost. They almost always end up coming back to haunt you. And that's the deal with Reuben foster mean that ends up being very bad pick by the Niners and hearing Cal Shanahan, by the way. It sounds like they they had certain stipulations for him. And Kyle said that those were not met. And so no matter what happens with the process at this point. They had to move on. This is just speculation. But my guess is that they did not want him to associate or be around that that woman anymore, and he was and that's it. That's my guess that that was one of the stipulations for him staying on the team. And then the only other thing is the Browns. Good some good Mo-jo going here. Although I'll disagree. With Baker Mayfield in terms of the Hugh Jackson thing. I mean, he can do he can say whatever he wants. But first of all, you know, Baker Mayfield the way he treated the handshake. And then after the game it kind of overshadowed how well he and they played you know, what I mean? Like, why do you want the focus to be on Hugh Jackson? If you're the Browns who cares about Hugh Jackson yet that that becomes the focus rather than how well Baker play and how well the Browns played. Plus, I mean, Hugh Jackson kinda got fired. I mean, he kinda got fired. But what are you gonna do never work? Again, never worked in the AFC north again not worked for them for the rest of the year. I don't know there's not that many teams that really want to hire you Jackson. I think he went to the one place that still likes them. So I don't blame him for that. And the weird thing about it is Baker Mayfield transfer within the same conference. That's a little bit bizarre to me. I think that you know, what it is. I just think it's rookie naive like he'll start like over his career. He'll play hill. Have teammates. Are you still in the past two one week next week there another team he'll guys on defense that I mean, I went from me in a Redskin a cowboy in a day and had no control of rider. The Redskins elected to release me. The Cowboys elected declaim me on waivers. And there you have it. I mean, the maybe the most heated rivalry there. I went I went from one of the next day. So I think he's a little bit misguided. You know, what's not misguided your boys with the ballpark pouch? They are guided right where they should be right where they need to be and it feels glorious it. You know, what it's been so long Bri in all sincerity since I were underwear that wasn't sex that I almost forget what? It was like like I almost forget what it was like to not have the ballpark pouch putting your package in the perfect place, by the way, a lot of people don't know like a lot of times, your wives or whatever your kids. They don't know what to get you for the holidays. Why not tell them they get you sex underwear?

Sax with two X's Saks underwear dot com. Promo code Ross. I love it too. Great Christmas gift. All right. Let's go in depth with each of these games from yesterday. Let's start off with Oakland. And Baltimore Raver ravers have at that. The ravens improved a six and five thirty four seventeen win over the raiders. Lamar Jackson two touchdowns was at the Oakland more ravers. Or was it the ball Boland Raver just the ravers just the ravers Dudek. Be thing. Do people still do that? Now. Go to raves of my gosh. I haven't heard about that in years. That's how old I remember that when I was in college people like people would like take ecstasy, and then like go to a rave, and it's so awesome. And like, no that doesn't look fun at all. I'm just going to drink a beer and go talk to this girl. I'm not gonna do what you guys are doing over there. That's not fun. I know what fun is okay. I'm from Pennsylvania. I know what fun is fun is a keg of Yang Ling. And talking to girls and then maybe doing pushups in between to get ready for football season. Anyway, in terms of the game between the raiders and the ravers so the raiders actually got off to a decent start. And then it went all downhill from there. I mean, all downhill Jared cook had an incredible catch that was about the extent of the positive stuff for the raiders Gus Edwards over one hundred yards again, he's good man. He runs downhill he banks it up in their head. It records. Not win more games with him playing for them. And I do agree though that Lamar Jackson I've seen. This place is opens up the ground game for them. There's no question. So here's the about Lamar Jackson. I think he's accuracy is always gonna leave something to be desired. He had a couple of interceptions again. But I think the hope is that he makes up for that with the plays that he makes his legs. And how it opens up the running game for the running back. And I think it's good complementary football with a very good defense that they have. And you'd think that over time, even if his accuracy doesn't improve a great deal that the decision making in the interceptions would. So I think he's a very intriguing player Cyrus Jones. Punt return was obviously huge anytime. I mean the ravens had a punt return touchdown. Then Matthew Jude on had a huge game. He's having a great year. And he got the the interception for subs or the sack for subs. Touchdown. I mean that was really the key for the ravens defensive touchdown. And a punt return touchdown urine. Pretty good shape. Josh Allen scored to go ahead. Touchdown on a fourteen yard run bills beat the Jags twenty four twenty one. So it's funny because I feel similarly bri- about Josh Allen in buffalo to how I feel about Lamar Jackson. I mean, they're different. But I think there's always going to be some issues with with Allen's accuracy. And I think that he's raw. But the physical tools are just unbelieving. He ran for over a twenty yard touchdown. You almost had one hundred yards rushing. His arm is insane. That throwing made to Robert Foster who's interesting story, by the way because foster was a big time big time recruit out of western Pennsylvania who never really did much Alabama. Like never never really got a going at Alabama. And now here he is making plays the NFL because you always had that. Physical ability that happens. Sometimes you mean. Well, the play of the game here is the Jags loose seven straight the play. The game was when Bortles threw it down to Moncrieff and they're wrestling at the one that doesn't happen. They they moved back then Dede Westbrook goes in. But there's a hold, but the Moncrieff thing lead to that fight for net who had been running very well adapted point and was leading the Jags offense. He gets kicked out of the game along with shack Lawson. They'll also get very heavy fines dudes. It's not worth it. It is. So not worth it. I was talking to somebody today who Malcolm Jenkins got find like thirteen grand or something. You know, he got fined thirteen grand for the middle finger to the saints, dude. There's no middle finger. That's worth that. None. None whatsoever. So at any rate the Jags lose seven street, but that that costs them because they ended up backing up then they score. But then there's a whole any backup. Then they missed the field goal. They get nothing out of that. As Lambeau who never misses MRs that field goal, and that was pretty much the game. Then the bills kind of pulled away the bills are not a good team. But they are scrappy they are better than I thought they'd be and they're not the worst team. And they are a team that that city that I love can be proud of. And those fans I love can be proud of. Seattle Seahawks over the Carolina Panthers. Thirty to twenty seven what a day for Christian, McCaffrey. I player in Panthers. History hundred yards rushing hundred yards receiving. And they lost any lost. And they lost for a third straight time. He is an incredible player. It is interesting to me how much the Panthers are using him. I mean, he pretty much never comes off the field. That's a rare thing in today's day and age of the NFL at the running back position. I mean, he never comes off the field. That's what I see games. And was like I mean, what am I doing here? Right. This is ridiculous. I don't think I don't think C J Anderson got signed by any thought that was interesting. Anyway, McCaffrey was incredible. The Panthers moved the ball extremely well. They just weren't able to get the points at time. They need to get when they actually got down there near the red zone. And a lot of times that's difference in the game. I mean, if you if you think about the two most important things in football any level especially the pros red zone. And turnovers red zone and turnovers. Do you get touchdowns? You get fuel goals. You get nothing and for the Seahawks. Russell Wilson was just incredible in the fourth quarter that throat a more or more made the one handed catch on fourth down that was insane. But even so the Panthers still had their chance Gano missed along one. And then Russell Wilson found a wide open. Lock it c-. Ciba's Sebastian you to Cousy made the chip e and now Seahawks very much in the wild card race and the Panthers they were six into. I mean, they they were like it seemed like a lock for the playoffs. Now, they're all the way back to the pack. That's got to be very frustrating. Stay patriots over the jets twenty seven thirteen Tom Brady surpasses Peyton Manning for the most passing yards in NFL history. So the jets actually got off to a good start here in this game. And I mean, what did you just say? I said eighty seventy nine thousand four hundred and sixteen yard career passing yards surpassed Peyton Manning for the most passing yards in NFL history. Behind drew Brees. He says they're still behind drew Brees including the playoffs. Oh, that's interesting. I didn't know that. Okay. Good step. Right. How did you know? How do you know includes the playoffs because where I found it says including the playoffs. Okay. Okay. Okay. I thought I thought I don't know if the threat bright, I think I was kind of at the game. Where breeds broke the record. So okay. Got it jets got off to a good start. But they have no pass rush. I mean Brady had all day. And you just see watching this game. How much of a difference? It makes for the patriots when they have a healthy Sony, Michelle and a healthy grunk. It just makes a huge huge difference for them in that situation. And you know, it still wasn't like a huge dominant win by the patriots. But they'll take it by the way as bad as my bets were as tough as the beats were for me on thanksgiving. I had. Really good day yesterday. And I needed it for the even money podcast with my bet yesterday. So came up big when I needed it. Hopefully, it's it's a comeback for me. I think Bri by the way, you might have skipped the Cleveland Cincinnati game. Jake's you know, what I think you're right. Let's talk about Cleveland at Cincinnati. So okay. We already mentioned Baker Mayfield was terrific knick. Chubb is I mean that was a dish in by subtraction moving on from Carlos Hyde. Just because it got Nick shovel in the field. More Baker Mayfield been unbelievable since he's been with Freddie kitchens. But. That was all overshadowed like I said by the interaction with Hugh Jackson, whether it's Demari Marius Randall handing the ball to Hugh trying to or the Baker Mayfield interaction. I think it's a shame. I really do. I also think what's happened in the Bengals is a shame. They just can't get their defense better. No matter what they do. That's a problem and. Andy Dalton hurts his thumb. I guess the one positive got out of it is that Jeff Driscoll actually came in. And did some did some decent things. We'll see how bad Dalton's thumb is. Eagles tight end Zakar. It's had seven catches for ninety one yards and a touchdown in Philadelphia's twenty five twenty two win over the New York Giants and arts eighty four catches this season. It's the most by a tight end in eagles history. And he only needs I think like sixteen to have the most by tight end ever. And in five games. You gotta think at this rate. He'll get there. He's having an unbelievable season before I forget, I was there for the press box food. So for the eagles games since I go to all of them. It's standard on the home side. Right. It's standard that they have like a fruit salad, then a couple of salads than hoagies. They always have the awesome, Philly, pretzels. So that stuff's all standard. The only difference is like what entree they have. And they had meatballs and rigour. Tony that was really good. Really, really good. I enjoyed that. So that was a nice job by the eagles press box food, although Bri. Yes. The the day before. When I was at Louisiana tech for that western Kentucky, Louisiana tech game. Holy crap. The first of all I entered. I was in the state of Mississippi for the first time in my life. I had no idea Bri driving from New Orleans. I literally old I we talked about this, right? Yeah. You call me. He said my going the right way. Yeah. I put it in ways. I want to go from New Orleans to rust in Louisiana for my CBS game and about an hour and a half into the drive. It says two hours is welcome to Mississippi. I'm like. Kinda just trying to stay in Louisiana might have made a mistake. Here. Jackson, Mississippi and Clinton Mississippi Vicksburg, but I'd never been to Mississippi. So I pulled over to Chick-fil-A, so I had a receipt and proof that I've actually been in the state of Mississippi, so boom, but this is a long winded way of me saying Bri since I told you the eagles press box food all of these by the way, all of these always usually on Twitter and Instagram at Ross Tucker NFL, you can see the videos of the press box food Bri they had Unitech smoked Gouda grits. One of the best things I've had in a long long time. Like, I would inject that stuff in my veins. It was so good. I had no idea Bri that Gouda was so Gouda. To get it. Now, just waiting for the punchline good keeps them that was the punt. Did you get those? I said Gouda is so Gouda. Okay. Anyway. So that was really funny. I'm surprised you didn't realize that Gouda is so good. So by the way, by sheep, saying it over and over talking to be funnier. I know I know I know, but I need to try Gouda on some other stuff but Gouda in grits. So my grandma Evelyn Bachmann used she's from Woodruff, South Carolina. She should make me grits all the time. And it was just like a ton of butter and that was delicious because she put an insane amount of butter in with the grits, but Gouda man, holy crap. That was really good as for the eagles giant's game. Oh, where were you Bri? So on Friday, I was in Tampa for the UCF USF game. And then I flew up to Carolina for the Seahawks game yesterday. How oh so you're at that game. How was the Carolina press boxer Carolina press box food. It was okay. We're very thankful that they fed us. You crack up. You can you tell us what it is. You don't need to evaluate just tell us. What it was? It was it was tacos. So they had had a little bit of beef a little bit of chicken a little bit of walk a little bit. Also. Is it? All right. It was fine. Yeah. And then at halftime, they hit hotdogs and the thing was really really good chocolate. Chip cookies. Got it. That was it. But I have to say in Tampa pretty disappointing in Tampa. Because you go in first of all when you go to a Tampa Bay Buccaneers game. The press box food is as we know it is top five. Maybe even number one. Exactly. Well, they didn't they didn't have the top five nece there, and it was really disappointing 'cause you walk in, and they have, you know, the layout. And there's that big carving station. It was empty. They had all the big. Where all the trays go. We're all the food goes anti. They had hot dogs, and they had MAC and cheese, which was average. And then this to add insult injury as we're leaving after the USF game on Friday the food crew they start setting up for the for the bucks king yesterday. So they're all the placards out with all of the stuff that they're going to serve. Yes. So I mean, the bucks have a bigger budget than universities, south, Florida. Evidently, evidently, yes are as for the eagles giant's game. Giants totally dominated the first-half. I mean, it looked to me like the eagles didn't show up like the eagles wanted. No part of it. I mean, it three hundred forty six yards in the first half three forty six totally dominated saquon. Barkley running the ball with him passing it at will. I mean, he was incredible. And they're even sometimes I was almost wondering about the effort of some of the eagles players. But then the second half they totally stepped up on defense. Michael Bennett had a gigantic game for them when they really need them to. He was excellent and the offensive line and run game actually play. Played pretty darn well for the eagles whence was just kind of salad. The giants just didn't have the ball much in the second half. And they kept having like penalties or sex that we're going to behind the chains. And just really didn't give the ball to saquon Barkley very much at all in the second half. And you would just think what the guys that the eagles had playing in the secondary that Odell Beckham junior would've had a bigger day. That was that was surprising that and the eagles kinda save their season for at least a week. Speaking at a Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They ended their four game losing streak. Jameis Winston threw for three hundred twelve yards in two touchdowns. The final Tampa Bay twenty seven San Francisco nine. So correct. Nick molds has come back to earth a little bit. Now. I mean, Nick Mullins he's getting he's going the wrong way. He was great as first game. Okay. Second game. Now, he was bad. That's the problem on the flipside. Jameis Winston was excellent no turnovers. He knows he's playing for his career. Whether that's in Tampa or not remains to be seen. But he's playing to try to stay starting quarterback in the NFL. And he played like it. Matthew, Brita ran the ball. Well for the Niners. He's been very consistent that that was the probably the lone positive really for you know, for the Niners at this point JP had another sect that's ten never thought. JP would get back to the point where you had ten sacks. Good thing. The giants couldn't use those ten sacks this year from JP and Mike Evans. Had a big day as well for the bucks. He usually does. Philip rivers completed twenty eight twenty nine passes including the first twenty five pass attempts for two hundred fifty nine yards three touchdowns zero interceptions in chargers. Forty five ten victory over Arizona. And it was forty five points. Four unanswered points. Yeah. Yeah. How about ten nothing? Arizona forty five straight for the chargers. They're gonna they're getting some flack about Melvin Gordon and him playing in the game or being in the game. At that time. I mean, dude, this is the NFL if the doctors clear him and you want to win the game. And they just lost the Broncos at home. They can't be sure that they would be the cardinals without Melvin Gordon now at the time was twenty ten. I don't really have a problem with it. I think it's unfortunate that he got hurt. But I don't really have a problem with the decision making there by the chargers. I think the really the only positive for the cardinals is probably Robert Kim DJ because even after that first touchdown dry for the cardinals and the Larry FitzGerald touchdown. Not a good day for Josh Rosen back in his hometown. Jake's Andrew luck has thrown at least three touchdown passes in eight consecutive games colts twenty-seven, Miami twenty four so even without Ryan Kelly. I thought the offense of line was still solid now. Brayden Smith gave up a sack the rookie, right? Tackle gave up a sack to Cam wake. You know, the so the sack lists streak is over, but they still played well, and I think the key to this game in my mind is the resiliency of the colts. Because this was kind of a stay alive game for them as well. And they are able to do it. Even though they were down ten in the fourth quarter the dolphins. Dolphins are a very middling team. This just reminds me of like so many dolphins games where they're just good enough to be around five hundred just good enough to get a lead in the fourth quarter. But then to lose the only other thing I would say is throwing the ball to interlock. That's pretty stupid. For a couple of different reasons. I don't think they'll be doing that anymore. Whatever Broncos defense forced four turnovers in their win against the Steelers the final twenty four seventeen and it snapped. Pittsburgh's six game win streak, right? And between the four turnovers and Justin Simmons blocking the field goal. I mean that was the game late in the game. Ben didn't see the defensive tackle dropping. I don't even know if he was supposed to drop or just got no rush and just kind of standing there and Ben through it right to another really bad pick to Chris Harris, but deserve your grumble. Fumble you know that went through the end zone deaths. Hard to come back from men. I mean, you're going in for a touchdown. And you foam won't goes to the end zone. And the other team gets the ball at the twenty. That is rough really rough James Connor fumbled the ball. You know, nobody even hit them practically. So nobody hit the ball just hard. I don't care if you have five hundred yards wherever they had it just makes it really tough to come back. From that. You know, they even had a fake field goal that worked for a touchdown from Boswell to Bill in a Ueva. But it wasn't enough because they couldn't stop Philip Lindsay. And they couldn't stop manual Sanders. Thought it was a step back for sure for the Steelers defense that had been playing better definitely a step back because authentically they moved the ball juju Smith Schuster to ninety seven yard touchdown usually have that over five hundred yards. Usually you win those games. Also twenty four seventeen was Sunday night. Football's final Minnesota over Green Bay. And I feel like when I'm making my pick spry that. It's like, oh, man. Twenty four seventeen you always pick every game twenty four seventeen twenty four twenty. Well, this is back toback game twenty four seventeen that seems like a pretty common score in the NFL. This game was mainly about Kirk cousins. There was this talk is in play well on primetime. What about the Thursday night game this year in LA? He was insane in that game. What are you talking about? I don't like narratives that you're like, wait a minute. What are you like he was great neck game? You earlier in the year. So I don't really understand that he was fantastic in the game. Absolutely fantastic. You know, his receivers there cannot be a better combo. A better do oh in the NFL thence defined digs and appealing. They're both ridiculous. And you had digs wide open. He beat your mind. Liam's for touchdown. Pat, L flying the center getting glory block out in space to let dalvin cook the touchdown for the limbo limbo celebration Bri. Now, I did not. I was traveling last. You might have been on the plane. Yeah. They literally lifted at them feeling up into limbo. Can I just say this? I think limbo is a little little overrated. And maybe that's because I have a bad back. But like is limbo. First of all anytime you ever have do limbo people start to cheat. So what's the point of it? You're you're not supposed to be able to go in forward at all. You're not supposed to be a he gotta go underneath the whole time. But you know, what? I mean, you've got to go. You can't turn your shoulder. Duck your head or bend, your knees. Like that. I don't know. It just seems to me like are is limbo overrated. Underrated properly rated in your mind. I'm going to say, I've really never gave it a thought song to say it's properly rated although I don't know if you watched it on Saturday night the battle of the bands in between at halftime between the grambling and southern game. And I think it was the drum major for southern who actually started off their performance and kind of started off in that limbo position. I was like, okay. That's impressive. Really? Yeah. I did not see that. But I have to give those to southern on that one. Well, the southern band was at the southern ban was at the saints falcons game Thursday night thanksgiving, and I watched him, and they were awesome. I mean, they were awesome. There aren't that many bands that I love bands. But there aren't there. Many that entertaining is it's incredible. It really is. The other things part of the game. I mean, the executive your roads injury for the Vikings. That's a bad one. And you'll hear momentarily from Dr Chow about that on the pro football from pro football, doc podcast his medical minute because that's a bad one. There's a lot of injuries to get to Gordon in Dalton. And that's why we have pro football dock here and medical minute trying to give you guys added value. But that roads one did not look good Vikings kicking woes continued, but they were able to overcome it and the Packers off to a fast start, you know, fourteen points like I think in the first quarter really early in the game. And then they just could not sustain it. And it's looking like now it's just about it for Mike McCarthy. I mean, they're going to have to run the table. And even then they still might not make it. I think the Packers will make a change that should be high. Highly sought after job. Are you kidding me? The chance to coach Aaron Rodgers. There will be some people that will like that job for sure. Speaking of liking things Bri if you haven't gotten a chance yet, hopefully, you will go to Ross Tucker dot com, and at the top clicked the shop tap because we got all kinds of cool things. Speaking of the holidays, we've got you know, a hard case for your iphone laptop skins, we got frontside own t shirts, or we got different colored T shirts with front or back. I think we're done here yet is it's daddy soda time. It's funny by the way Bri like, what do you call? These like, what do you call how we're doing this? But we don't have any inventory 'cause I got most people buddies that are like, hey, man. My it's daddy sorta time shirt still hasn't shown up at my house yet. Do you don't understand like, I don't we don't have any. I bought mine. It's not like that. Like we. It's not consignment. It's what's the call Bri? I don't know the exact term, but we do not have all the inventory when you make a purchase we deal with a third party company. They produce the shirt they mail, and they do everything. And then they take a percentage. Right. So everything is they take a large percent. Everything is on demand. Essentially, they don't even make the shirt until you order it. That's like fast food. Right. That's like the difference between Chick-fil-A in another fast. Food restaurants, not gonna make it until you order. It. Yes. Like Paneira exactly that count. Sure. Do you think Pinera's fast food? I think if you call Panara fast than and you have to call police fast food. Cipolla definitely fast food. He kidding. You. Just walk right down the line. That's Cipolla definitely fast-food peninsula. I think a little bit more debatable. But you know, why Panara qualifies a my mind why they have drive through now. If you can get your food through the drive thru that's fast food. Or at least fast enough food without without the stigma of what you think of when you think fast food, right right paneira's the best. I love we didn't get a Pinera partnership or Chipotle layer fillet or something sand foam something God do something. And you guys got to check out the different t shirts in different items. We have available for you. When you hit the shop tab over at Ross, Hucker dot com. Ask for that. For an awesome t shirt or something for for the holidays. Let's get to that medical minute bribe. This is Dr David Chow with the week twelve NFL injury rundown. Let's talk about three quarterbacks in three running backs as the headliners in terms of injury that quarterback. Andy Dalton injured his right throwing hand. Thumb x-rays were negative. There is no fracture. But he's seen a hand specialist and the concern here is the owner collateral ligament. If that ligament is sprained doesn't even have to be. All the way he might have problems gripping the football. And that could be a big issue with him playing next week. Midst Trubisky is out with an injury that I do not believe to be an AC joint injury. I believe it is more of a rotator cuff, brews and true to form. He is not definitely playing this next week yet he easily could miss this coming week. He missed Thanksgiving Day game already Marcus mariota plays tonight. Monday night with a stinger that may have aggravated his elbow nerve issue. He claims that his grip is good. But we'll need to follow up and see if the neck in the issue are additive or he can play through it running back. The big injury of the week is to Melvin Gordon. He went into the game with left knee issues in a hamstring issue. And now he has a right knee injury. Thankfully, it does not appear by video to be season ending. It is not as a well. It appeared to be an MC L injury. He's likely to miss a week or two at least. But hopefully can return for that big Kansas City showdown for the AFC west in three weeks time Kenyan Drake left the game briefly with what appeared to be a left AC joint injury. He should miss them practice time, but should be okay. Going forward and Sony. Michelle had a scary looking injury where he was bent over backwards and really hyper-extended his back. But thankfully, those types of injuries don't really cause any long term issues, and he returned with a big thirty three yard Carey in getting one hundred thirty three yards on the day. That's our injury rundown for week twelve in the NFL. Nice job there by Dr Chow was always I like to be informed on the latest. And I want you guys to be informed as well. That'll do it by the way for a pretty monstrous Monday edition of the Ross Tucker football pike, hopefully, all of you had a terrific terrific holiday weekend with your families.

And this is probably the last week that I'm giving out signed pictures, saying cards signed press passes to anybody that sends me a screen shot Ross at Ross Tucker dot com with your. Picture of you, putting the settings tab, and because Tucker co Tucker and the settings tab because you guys are are are milking me dry, man. I'm running out of cards and pictures and press passes so kudos to you. I'll let it go for one more week. Also, I like to change things up every once in a while. So there's been a lot of talk about the dolphins and then potentially tanking. Let's do it. It's big Showtime Armando sow Garo are they really taking. So I very rarely do this. And that is talk with the beat writer of an individual team year on the Ross Tucker football podcast because this is a national podcast, and you guys come for your national NFL news. And so a lot of you don't have an interest in this specific team will y'all have initiative specific team, but it's all different teams. But I just feel like with what's going on with the Miami Dolphins this off season. I think this is sort of a league wide issue and might be talked about even more a year from now as it relates to Trevor Lawrence the Clemson quarterback when he will be eligible to play his final year of college football and then enter the NFL draft. That's I guess if he's not playing in the XFL who knows but any rate I wanna talk Miami Dolphins. And I want to do with our. Window sell Garo. He's been covering the team since one thousand nine hundred ninety does a terrific job for the Miami Herald, he comes on my radio show all the time. He's probably like our number one. Most frequent guy we bother. Do we bother you too much to come on Sirius XM Armand, I feel bad? But the dolphins are just in the news a lot this off season. Now. Now, it's my pleasure anytime Rawson because you pay me exorbitant rates. I come on all the time. And I it just balloons my Bank accounts. Really make sure you're checking them out on Twitter at our Monday. Sal, Garo SA L G U E R O. So I got to ask before we dive into this current interational the dolphins you've been covering the team since nineteen ninety and maybe by ninety Marino. Maybe it was a little bit different. Not quite like what it was like an eighty three eighty four eighty five eighty six. But when I think about this. I'm not kidding. If I could be one player at one time in the history of the NFL. I think about like Joe name it in the sixties in New York that had to be pretty amazing. And I pick about Marino, especially in the eighties. But to a lesser extent, I guess early nineties in Miami. It's unbelievable are Mondo. A how many national dolphins fans there are and every time I talked to him. I asked him. Why are you a dolphins fan? And they almost always ninety nine percent say Dan Marino. And I've made the argument or Mondo, and I don't know how you could calculate this. I think he is the single most he is responsible for the most fans of any team of any single individual in NFL history. Well, there's no doubt about that. That nationally you know, when the dolphins go on the road. There's a lot of people that show to the hotels, and so forth and autograph seekers wearing Dan Marino jerseys. There's they don't show up where a, you know, Lawrence Timmons jerseys. That's for sure. And so yeah, there's a huge following of. There's a generation as a matter of fact of dolphins fans that grew up watching Dan Marino play by the way that same generation also grew up with Don Shula on the sidelines. And they looked at that book and pair and thought that the team that's the way that it should happen. They were and I'm gonna say this, and it's going to be controversial especially in New England. They were Tom Brady and Bill bell. A check without the Super Bowls. And I think it was last year the year before we're Brady and Bella check combined to finally overtake a duo for the most coats quarterback combined win. I think the number was one ninety the duo that they overtook were Don Shula and Dan Marino. And again, obviously neither Shula normal Reno together we're able to win a Super Bowl. So they don't stand that test against Bella check and Brady but clearly in that time the dolphins were national team in an elite team in the NFL. They were one of those teams that the NFL always wanted to put on Monday night football. In fact, they were the winningest Monday night football team in the NFL one point. They were always on prime time. It was it was a different era. That's. For sure. So what was it like before? I get into this year's dolphins. Which is why I really brought you on. But what was it like to cover in particular Marino, especially early in his especially when you first got there. Ninety ninety one ninety two hundred three what was it like covering Marino? Use cool. It was a different time. You know nowadays. Look the quarterback talks once a week to the press, and that's it and typically because of free agency because of the way things are in the NFL right now, he's often gone in four years, and you don't really get to know the guy, and he doesn't really want to get to know you. With Dan Marino. He was there. And he was there for a long time. And he was there every day. And there was no I'm only talking on Wednesdays. You know, he was at his locker you could go up to them. And and you know, what's up, dude? What's up? What's up? You know that kind of stuff and joke around I'll tell you the truth in the nineties Ross, the south Florida media would excuse me would have touch football games. I'm the dolphins practice field. And the dolphins had a quarterback named Scott Mitchell. And they had another quarterback named Doug Peterson desiring a bell. And one team Mitchell would draw up plays for one team and Peterson would draw place for another team. And the guy that was seemingly always jealous about it was who. Oh, yeah. Dan Marino because he couldn't get in on the accident dropped plays where either team. So it was just a totally different dynamic, and it was fun. And it was you know, they were fun to cover. I love it. Now, let's get to the current dolphins. Who I guess you could say are fun to cover in a different way for what they're doing right now. I want you to best verbalize what the Miami Dolphins plan is for the two thousand nineteen season. Well, and I wrote this today in the Miami Herald Ross so the Miami Dolphins more than any NFL t. They need a starting elite franchise quarterback. And their plan is to possibly be so putrid this season. So as to be a top the draft in twenty twenty so that in that year, they are in position to draft. You know, the most elite of the quarterback that coming out like, you know, to tag of a low so for Alabama or just in Herbert for Oregon and the plan, and it's amazing that I just spoke that out. I couldn't believe that. I wrote it when I put it in the paper because most of the time for the last almost thirty years that I've covered this team. The idea of not having a quarterback and not addressing the need immediate. Really would be ludicrous. It would be crazy. If you don't have it. Go get it their planner's. Yeah. Yeah. We might go. Get it. Oh, you might have just wait a year who've be fine. It's just it's it's bizarre. So how do you know that like how do you know that their plan is to lose to try to get Tongo via Loa or Herbert? Okay. So this was not something that just happened. Obviously. I don't I can't account for other reporters. But I do have some sources that I built up over the years within and without the organization, and they told me in December. We're done with Ryan tannehill. And then they told me in January. We're done with Ryan tannehill. And we're not gonna sign of you know, any significant quarterback replacement this year in free agency. And then I was told later on we're done, and we're gonna look to twenty twenty. And you know, you kind of when you're told this stuff, you you. I guess you have to well what I did was I tried to get as much confirmation as possible. But the idea that this would be happening was a little strange. And so you try to get other people to tell you the same stuff to hear this is ring drew for everybody. And it was. And then I see that other people are starting to report the same stuff as well nationally. And so now, we're all kind of out there reporting this stuff and then the off season begins and the dolphins trade Ryan tannehill. And the dolphins are looking at tyrod Taylor as his replacement. And they can't land tyrod Taylor who goes to become the backup in San Diego because they didn't wanna pay tyrod Taylor starter money. And then they're looking at teddy Bridgewater. To sign him. But they can't land teddy Bridgewater because he wants starter money, and they're not paying starter money or offering started money, and then they signed Ryan Fitzpatrick. Who Chris Greer, the general manager himself said, you know, what Ryan Fitzpatrick nice guy? Good dude in the locker room. But there's nobody on the NFL that thinks he's the long-term answer quarterback. The general manager said this of the dolphins. And it's true. He doesn't need to apologize for saying it because it's true. But that's what he's saying about his own starting quarterback in twenty nineteen. And so at this point it's becoming increasingly clear that they're not trying to upgrade. And then they lose infre- agency or through cuts that they've made. Let's see they're starting and leading receiver. They're leading sacker their second-leading Sacher their leading rusher. Starting guard. Starting right tackle. And the the point of it is that they there's been an exodus from south Florida from that roster. And I get it. Sometimes you need to cut bait. Sometimes you need to move on. But typically what happens is in the off season teams look to upgrade. Well, upgrade means. You gotta bring somebody in dolphins. The people that they brought in free agents are not starters are not stars by any measure in other words, they feel they've created a bunch of holes on the roster and a filled none. And by the way, this was a roster that already had its problems because the authors were seven and nine last year. They're not a good team. They the roster needed upgrading. They've not done that upgrading. But but even more so than that almost. Mondo? You know, isn't it some of the comments that Stephen Ross has made you know, that have made it really clear, whether it was why he fired gays or even I saw recently where he said, you know, he hopes the rebuild they can rebuild in two years, but he asked to be realistic, and that's not the same as saying they're going to intentionally lose. But I mean when when when an owner comes out and says the rebuild going to be at least two years, you've got to be realistic. Like, I said that's not saying that they're intentionally trying to lose. But that's a pretty good clue at least that is absolutely a rebuild. And I know he said a couple of other things that really caught your attention, including about why he fired geese. Right. So the day after the season he did. In fact, fire the the head coach Adam gays, and he was asked why and his answer was because Adam wants to win and win. Now, he's in his fourth year and fourth year head coaches want to win and need to win. And then at the owners meetings which was last week as we tape this today, he said he was just he being at him. He his career arc situation. What is was that a different place than what the franchises situation was the franchise, obviously what he was. Meaning is it's taking a step or fifty back and Adam gaze is trying to move forward. And so. When he says things like this. And when in that same press conference that I mentioned earlier, you talked about three and thirteen and how how he hopes that doesn't go to three and thirteen. But if that's what it has to happen, then so be it three and thirteen. That's that's not an area code. That's a record. And that's that's bad. I guess I appreciate the honesty, and I don't really have any problem with their strategy. And what they're doing. I guess my question, though, is, you know, how do they sell the team to the fans because I guess I just it's so rare to hear an owner say that like when you hear a guy say two year rebuild how are the fans feeling about that? Because usually an owner would never say that because he doesn't want them to not renew their luxury box for that year or say, you know, what I'm not renewing my tickets this year. Maybe I'll get him for twenty twenty. Right. Well, the the dolphins are in any unique situation, and they're not at the point of pain yet. And the situation is as follows first of all. Steve Ross has done a great job of refurbishing rock stadium. It looks great. It has a very European soccer vibe to it. It's a cool place. They added a tennis facility next door in twenty twenty one team will be there for training camp as well. It's a cool place. And so people have been going there, even though the product on the field has not been good. And that has carried over this off season to a certain degree despite the messaging. So there are tickets sold for twenty nineteen. That's not the issue. The issue is going to be come November and come December. When or if depending on who you believe excuse me, you're off the dolphins are whatever. Three and ten or something how many people in south Florida? When the weather is gorgeous in November and December Sonny without a cloud in the sky. And it's sixty eight degrees out. Or seventy are people going to say let me go on a Sunday afternoon to watch the hideous Miami Dolphins. Or are they going to say I got something else? I can find that I can do because there's a restaurant or to in Fort Lauderdale and south beach, then I can have some fun at there's a bar to maybe I should get back to church and pray for my team on Sunday. Instead, maybe I should just be with the family. Maybe I'll go to the beach hang out by the pool go to museums. Do a Jillian things that there are to do here. Other than go take in a bad football game from the home team. That's on the test of what's the Ross is saying and planning now because when he looks out from his owners box and sees. Wide swath of empty seats. If you're gonna be very interesting. Yeah. And so for me, I I actually think more teams should consider this. When you consider how important the quarterback position is and what's happened with the Colt franchise when it happened to be the one year that Payton got hurt they were able to get luck. And be the worst team. I mean that totally changes the entire fate of the franchise for decades. I mean, NBA teams take and they're not even guaranteed to get the number one guy in the NFL. You can get the number one guy. I guess the point. I don't really get about. That though is why would you sign Ryan Fitzpatrick? I mean, the guy is never played a stretch of games where he doesn't at least look awesome and win a couple of them. So it just seems like if you're trying to lose, and I know they wouldn't say that I know the players are gonna play their best and the coaches are going to try to win. But it's obviously a full scale re. Rebuild winning in twenty one thousand nine hundred not the primary goal. It just seems like Fitzpatrick's the wrong guy. Like Fitzpatrick can be like, oh, yeah. You tell me we were trying to lose. All right, watch this. You know, I just I feel like he's the wrong guy. Right. There's been a lot of believe it or not there's been concern about that among some dolphin fan communities because Ryan Fitzpatrick like you say, you know, in his career he has a six interception game. He also has a six touchdown game. So that's what you're probably going to get you're going to get really good or really really terrible and the dolphins want one. But not the other, you know, and that's interesting. But here's the way, it was explained to me. This is organic this quote unquote tank that they're doing it's where Ganic in that. Look, they don't have an answer right tackle. They don't have an answer at guard. They don't have any none rushers. They lack a starting corner. Opposite Davian Howard. It's a very young team. I wrote the other day they're gonna add like twenty five undrafted free agents after the draft. And some of those guys, by the way, you're going to make the team it's going to be a young inexperienced not premium team. If Ryan Fitzpatrick comes into that locker room he is going to do everything he can to try to win. But that's what the dolphins need from that position. Because you don't wanna poison the locker room, you need someone that is functional at least at that position. If they had brought in or set. For you know, someone like Luke Falk who hasn't taken any snaps in the NFL or or someone else of that ilk. Then it would be we'd be going from bizarre to all out clown show. And they don't wanna be the all out clown show. They're happy with bizarre. And so that's where they're at that. You know, the head coach Bryan Flora's he doesn't wanna lose. He wants to win. And he's going to do everything he can to win and encourage winning. But the losing won't be because they're trying on purpose to lose the losing will be because they're not fit to win. They don't have the Reese they haven't stocked up enough to actually compete on many levels and the draft which is coming up in three weeks from today. You know, it's it's not gonna be enough to fill. All those needs. There will this will be a team that you know, just isn't good enough. It wasn't good enough last year when they were trying and now they've taken a step or five back from that. So it's organic as far as they're concerned. And adding Fitzpatrick is part of the you know, we're not gonna just totally lay down we need someone who's at least functional the position. But that might be the that might be my fantasy team name this year organic losing organic tank. That's amazing or Mondo. I love it. I appreciate the time. Lot of dolphins fans nationally. I think a lot of you already follow Armando. He's got seventy thousand followers on Twitter. It's got to be about as many as any beat writer that I know at our Mondo sow Garo does such a terrific job. Always great to talk with you. And like I said this is a rarity. But I think this year's dolphins deserved the national treatment. Thank you are Mondo it. My pleasure Ross anytime. Terrific stuff there with our Mondo south Garo be fascinating to see what the dolphins do in the draft next week. Maybe even trade down. Speaking of terrific.

And then you order today and save at one eight hundred flowers dot com code football. Beautiful spring Easter tulips I love getting these in the hands of wherever I'm going for the holiday weekend. It is a boss move. I promise. Jeez. Pretty busy weekend. Rawson the NFL start with some contract stuff. Vikings wide receiver. Adam feeling gets a new four year sixty four million dollar extension. Patriots DB, Patrick Chung and a one year extension. Gives him six million up front Panthers. Sign wide receiver. Chris HOGAN, the jets sign running back time on Gumri in the falcons tackle Tyler Davidson. Right. So I'll go in order. They're bright. Adam feeling was under contract for two more years because the Vikings gave him a contract, you know, when he started to first show. He was good and they locked him up. Which is smart because even though he got that four years sixty four million dollar extension and more bonus money that contracts still counts the one that he got before. So he gets rewarded for two fantastic seasons. And the team gets him locked up even longer which is great because he's a terrific player. Chung? What a what a second stat act? What a second stanza. He's had with the patriots. They love him. I mean, he was under contract for two more years. But he's another guy that your organization realize number one we want him here for a while. And number two, he probably does deserve more money. So they gave him a bump that gives them like four million dollars more this year than he was supposed to the Panthers signing. Chris HOGAN, what's interesting to me about that. Is just you look at the patriots receiving core. And it's like brutal. Right. I mean, it's not good. And yet it doesn't seem like they made much of an effort to bring back HOGAN, not agreed signed for him jet signing running back. Ty, montgomery. Fits kind of as a backup to leave on bell. I think that's fine. And I'm surprised the saints didn't show and that more other teams didn't show more interest in Tyler Davidson doesn't bring a whole lot of pass rush to the table. But still you're talking about a starting tackle for most of the last three years. Kind of surprising that more teams weren't interested in Davison to me. Geez. It's talk on the discipline front the NFL. Find Redskins linebacker Ruben foster to game checks. The eagles issued a statement after Jalen mills was arrested for disorderly for disorderly. What does that Ross affray affray A F F R A Y? I do have a college degree. But I'm not familiar with affray. Are you kidding me? You don't know. What that word me? No, I don't you've never heard of afraid before. No. Oh my gosh. We'll say the rest of the thing. All right. He was arrested for disorderly affray after reportedly getting into a fight with NBA player Devin Robinson. Hey bri. Yeah. Right. When that came out I had to look up. What affray was I had no idea, dude. So why did you put it in there? What's that? Why did you put it in there? No. Because that's what makes it funny. That's this is all on the show. Don't try to get this off the show. I'm like, I said I said, hey, hey, Brian like that. Because I thought it was funny. No, it's an inst-. Since of fighting in a public place that disturbs the peace. I never heard of that either bright ever. That's why I was just busting your chops. When you didn't hear of it. I was making it sound like it was ridiculous that you never heard about it. I never heard of it either never in my life, disorderly affray. So I just explain it to you. Evidently, Devon Robinson had to go to the hospital. It sounds like he got the the worst of that fight. I have a question for you. And this is maybe why they maybe why it was disorderly affray. I guess if like both people. Agree to be in the fight. It's not really assault. Right. Like like, if both people go outside they wanna fight everybody around knows. They wanna fight. I guess that's not really a sold. It would more just be a fray, right? I mean, if if both people are like wanting to be a part of the physical interaction is that really assault, or is it more. I guess that's why it's a freight. That's my guest here. I agree listener. We'll tell me that I'm wrong. But that was why I thought it meant afraid because it's not like, you know, he hit somebody that didn't want it. It's like, no, let's go outside. Let's step outside. So, but I guess I was when I was gonna say why is that even illegal, but I guess it's still like disturbing. It's more about disturbing the peace than it is the fact that they, you know, hit each other agreed move moving on twenty. Jeez. I didn't even say my thoughts on it. I didn't even say my thought so not. Not good for Jalen mills. Because the eagles have a bunch of DB's. We'll see what comes out of it ruling not good for Devon Robinson the wizards announced right away. They're not going to renew his contract, and you had to go to the hospital Reuben foster down there in DC. That's like that's a win for the Redskins that he won't miss any games. I mean, they're adding him to an already defense is getting better and better. So he's just fine to game checks for the issues. You had in the off season. All right now. Some other news, including interesting comments from raiders general manager, Mike Mayock and Brett farve deadline. Dave Russell Wilson in the Seahawks. Aaron Donald donates a million dollars to his alma mater, and you've got to explain this. When I don't understand this one. The af that doesn't exist anymore will not let players sign. Cfl contracts wrote so muck may I just said gruden's that doom don't mess it up dude, which I think is weird because I think everybody believes that grooms the one still calling the shots there. So that's a little bit bizarre. Brett farve said he thinks that might McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers should have one more together. I think that's kind of hard to dispute at this point. But I'm sure it'll get attention deadline day for Russell Wilson the Seahawks. We will obviously talk about that with Andrew Brandt on Wednesday. We'll see what happens as when when recording this little bit later than normal eleven thirty two AM eastern time. Peter King said that you know, the deadlines not just for a long term deal this year it for a long term deal period. Otherwise, he'll just go year to you. I don't know if I really believe that. I don't know if that's something that I really believe. But that's at least what they're saying kudos to Aaron Donald. I mean, that's amazing a million dollars to your all modern. And obviously he feels like they were they made a big impact on his life. So the af has these contracts that allows players to get out of them to sign with the NFL. But. It doesn't allow them to get out of it to sign with other pro sports leagues. And so even though the league went belly up supposedly Bri, they're looking at those contracts as assets for bankruptcy proceedings. So I have no idea. I just know it's an absolute mess and a disgrace. Among everybody that's involved that those guys can't sign on to get work that really they earned by how they performed in the I mean, these guys they're not making millions of dollars. They're trying to make a living for their families playing pro football. And now they can't sign what the fell because of a legal dispute, frankly that makes me sick. And that's something else that Andrew Nye will definitely discuss on Wednesdays. Ross Tucker football podcast. We also might discuss Wrangler. You know, why Brian why Ross because Wrangler are real. Real comfortable jeans. No one knows this better than Wrangler the authority on jeans using their expertise in comfort and durability. You know, we should done by. Let me see if you're reading my mind. What should we have done? What could we have done better? A better segue. I don't know. I don't know. I'm thinking, I I'm drawing a blank here. What right when I was talking about Brett farve. I should've Wrangler. Read like when I was talking about Brett farve. I should've been speaking of Brett farve Bri Wrangler real, comfortable jeans. I should have done it. I wasn't thinking about see. That's the thing. You know, I've been doing this for years. Lots of podcasts you guys send in your spread the word via social media? No, you don't send in and you send in your sponsor confirmation. Emails when you go ahead and take advantage of any of our sponsors. And you're eligible to win the contest at the end of the week for a signed picture card or suppress passed or whatever. Same for those of you that spread the word by social media. And you'd think I'd get better at being like, dude. There's a pro farve comment. We gotta do Wrangler. Read. I love telling people about Wrangler. I should mention that with the farve. So no, I screwed up. So now, I just have to tell you separately that you. Need comfortable jeans? Wrangler are those jeans they legitimately or the type of genes that you wear when you just hanging out or playing touch football like far or even when you're going out Wrangler real, comfortable jeans. And I'm not real comfortable Bri with the fact that I didn't do better with that segue. I will try to do better next time, which will be to moral with the college draft podcast. I've got deigned Brookler from yet. Let it coming on to talk about the beast. Plus, there's more and more talk that maybe the cardinals won't actually take Cuyler Murray. We'll see what Dane has to say about those things and I'll get his thoughts on guys he's higher and lower. Then that's the most entertaining thing this time of year. You know, how to spread the word, you know, that you can just rate and review the show on apple podcasts. You know that you can take advantage of Amazon banner ad. And you know, that we'll be back on Wednesday where they injured brand and the Ross Tucker football podcasts, his thoughts on all the stuff. You also know that we're done here.

The Kevin Sheehan Show

A Cooley & Kevin Day

"You want it you need it. It's what everyone's talking about the Kevin Sheehan show now. Here's Kevin Errands here. I'm here Cooley. Is on the phone from his home out in northern Virginia and he joins us on the podcast today. So we're GONNA do a cooling Kevin Today GonNa play for you the de Ngelo Hall comments from the NFL Network. If you haven't heard you have to hear him because Dangelo Hall. Sensually doesn't believe the Twain Haskins will be the starting quarterback for the Redskins next year. So we'll get to that And a few other things. But how're you and Maddie in the kids holding up through all this we're great? We're just trying to find stuff to do we've been out shooting baskets for the last hour. That's fun we've been doing that in our backyard. A Lot. Teach my daughter how to dribble so she got ten dribbles today and that was cool and hardware teaching teaching her the right way. Head Up Ballo. Keep that ball low fat fingertips fingertips. Yup Fingertips is what we're working on today too. I mean we keep in mind. She's five and we're we're getting consecutive dribbles. So really we're just we're looking for consecutive dribbles. Yes he got ten. That's good that's really good. Amaechi right handed or left handed. She's right handed. GonNa work on that off hand to Cooley. She's actually good with to. My son is the one that is very right. Handed my daughter pretty good with both hands doing a lot of things. My son is only right handed. So your daughter as when Charles Shackelford once said Islam Fabulous throughout I've told so many of my friends. This who have young kids or younger kids the number one thing when it comes to basketball with a young kid to teach his ballhandling like if they can handle the ball they can learn how to handle the ball. It doesn't matter about the rest of it at a young age. They will have so much success because most kids when they start playing basketball at a young age are weak ball handlers. They can't handle the ball and the kid can really handle it. Is You know. Basically moving his or her way through the entire court you know on on his or her way to allay up But ball handling everything. The rest of it will come but ball handling the thing that if you learn it at a super young age It's you know it sticks with you in in shootings important too but ball handling. You can be a really good shooter as a young kid. But if you can't handle the ball you're not gonNa have the kind of success that lead to confidence at a lead to really enjoying you know what you're doing Ball handling everything right and she only shoots granny shots which is driving me absolutely crazy right now but von from that well I I actually I finally. I've been looking at hoops that go down lower because I put in a few years ago. I mean he saw yeah and It only goes down two thousand feet. You only goes down to about five and a half sixty six feet probably was lower. Well Yeah I. I'm getting another one. That goes from three feet to seven feet. But they know the difference between a fake who've been a real duke I do have to get somewhat of a real. Do that makes sense. Yeah yes you do What so what are you doing because I you and I talked last week and I think on the show the next day 'cause I talked to You. I talked to Scott. You Know Friends of mine with young kids and it's to me. You guys have the biggest challenge you know of the of the families that are hunkering down staying at home. It's so much easier for me with older kids. I think it is for families with younger kids. She said basically yet to entertain him sunup to sundown. Nearly will they never leave your side? There's almost always one of them right next to one of us and so yeah it's constantly engaging them entertaining them. What we started doing was just trying to walk so I took him yesterday for like a mile walk and that wears down enough to calm him down for a while They're good man. It's good it's a the funny thing is is as kids get older. They would tell you that they're getting sick of you. I can tell her. Kids are getting sick of us to right. Yeah they're ready to have some engagement from France or from other people And so there's we're one of our friends has two little girls and they ended up buying this thing called a portal so they can talk to each other right which is pretty cool like they can call each other on their portal. It's a boxy looking ipad thing. That's good and bad because my son knows how to do it so he calls. I mean we have my uncle era my uncle. My brother-in-law sister-in-law mom and stuff and we're not careful there on the portal calling someone at any time of the day but Yeah they're good man. It's it's this whole thing's really interesting you can tell it's going to go on for Awhile. And so we'll see all plays out are they? I haven't asked you this and I don't think I've asked Scott this either. Or what did they think? Sloan's old enough right to sort of recognize. That things are much different than they used to be are they. Are they worried? I mean what is what is A A younger kid. Think about all of this. I don't think she's old enough to be worried. She she calls it the sickness. After you and I talked. I tried to get her to call the move on virus. Oh I I didn't advocate the tell your daughter to call to Wuhan virus. Yeah no I did. Let's be honest. You said. Tell your kids. It's the move on. I did not really that. I did not say that but I know she's been good. She matty's parents came over for a while yesterday in her family and I mean they've been the they've been two weeks I I'm assuming they're fine but they still dogging out outside and Sloan said I. I can't I can't get close to you so I mean I think they understand it or she does. I don't know man I keep. She's been fine with it. You got to keep them busy. Keeps them entertained? And that's fun for a while. Yeah it's it's It's nuts. I mean I think you know you and I did the podcast together. We can half ago two weeks ago. Whatever was like two days ago no? It wasn't two days ago. It seems like it. It feels like two days ago. Well I mentioned this yesterday when on April first which was two days ago a friend of mine said God. It's too damn good thing we we. We moved on from March Ninety first. 'cause that's what it felt like. Marquette march was the longest month of our lives pro. Yes it's it's like if it would just be warmer outside that that would be well. We've had a couple of warm days. God the last two days have been Wendy in in sort of Chili and You know I'm one you live. I know how built up Loudon County as I understand that but you live in a more in a less densely populated area than I do. I live close in suburbs to DC. And you live further out. I do you have more of a sense of. You're in a better in better shape out there than you would be living in close. Were there more people. I think in part it's where it is more I mean I'm in Loudon County. And obviously it's it's everywhere but there's not many cases in Loudon County and maybe that's because there's not suggesting I I don't know the exact answer to that but to be honest with you know. I can't answer that question because I went to the gas station to get gas so I could power-wash three days ago the only time I've been to my car for ten days I'm just stayed at home. You're I mean I've been coming in to do the show the radio show in the podcast to the studio. Now you know it's isolated and there's really few people if any in the building and it's you know a mile from my house so I do get into the car every day but I'll tell you what if I didn't come in here to do this. I think I'd be going crazy right now. I mean Lots of dog walks. Obviously around the neighborhood. We talked about that last time but Yeah it's Yeah I mean you. You I don't know you're you're out there. And it just seems like the air is cleaner and there's more distance between you and the homes around you a tabby other here. We are not close. I mean everyone's on three or four five acres right here so I'm not concerned really about getting it. Based on the way we've been staying home I mean. My wife went to the grocery store for an hour the other day. But I'm really. I don't think we have a lot of concerns because we we really social distance. Are you wearing a mask for what I don't go out my wife making that she? She's been sewing mascot. She's the best. She's making masks. That's impressive We ordered them about a week ago and there was a projected date. I think of this weekend that they're supposed to arrive. I don't know if that's true or not. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get them. You know I have a bunch of Matt. I mean not a bunch like I'm going to help hospital by giving the masks but because of some of the art stuff and some pottery things and sprain stuff I have three or four and ninety five maths and then one big auto body after. I don't know I've not put on a map. Okay all right. Let's talk about what people tuned in to to here today. And that is some talk about The redskins and football general. I'm GONNA play for you. Would the Angelo Hall set on the network? I think it was late Thursday He said this on the NFL late. Wednesday this is what he said to On the NFL. Network about the Redskins quarterback situation. I I think you can totally judge a kid off. Look you know. Robert bears a former player. If you're in a player's mind I'm thinking this. We told this kid. He wasn't playing. Its he obviously did not get in his playbook there when we found out until we finally told him. Hey we're gonNA throw throw him in the middle of a gang unprepared. We seem grabs. We get a little bit better which still not wave. We really want him to perform at quarterback position. I think just trusting him right now his saying a whole lot and I think the way is going respond. A lot of kids. Don't respond bet. Bet Style of coaching embarrassing old school mentality type of coach. He was competition. These young guys want things given to them. I would have loved to see the way. It hasn't given the opportunity to be starting quarterback in Washington matter. How talented Kyle Alan behind him? Veteran Season Guy Behind that he knows the keys are his and he can fully go out there vaguely states and just be young and energetic with kyle out of you are not going to be able to make many mistakes so he wins the job man. I mean I really don't there knowing kyle album. I don't know how he wins. This starting job you know Kyle Allen with Kyle and Allen Kyle and breathing down his neck. Dwayne a young kid. Young kids need to be handed things old school versus new school. You know Rivera doesn't trust them right now. That's why he made the trade. What are you what what? What did you make what you just heard from the from d hall? I think he made the trade in part because of what you brought up to me with Cam Newton and then in discussing. Would you want somebody to be able to run this offense if you didn't really have time to install often Kylian is not talented guy. I don't think Cowan will be competing to start. I don't think you'll win the starting job. I think it's a safety blanket especially for the backup quarterback to know the offense if something happens to weigh in or if hell breaks loose with the way plays but even at that. I still see as growing quarterback the jury's still out the Angela Hall is absolutely correct. Yeah of course that that I don't think is is for me any anything that I would debate. I'm not convinced undoing. Haskins at this point. I think that you and I and a lot of people pre draft even thought the floor was maybe lower. I don't think the floors as low as maybe I did before. He got here but You thought there was more thought. There was significant bus potential. Yeah I thought that there was. I don't know if I thought he was a bus. I it's not that you said you thought he was when you evaluated him when he was in college. You said you thought there was bust potential their form. You saw a lot of things you like but you thought there was bus potential. I certainly didn't seem as a first rounder. Now that said it's funny when you say that everybody thinks that you see him as a buster as as a guy that you should never draft. I would've had no problem with the second right into the Third Reich so I I just didn't seem I brown quarterback And I I'm not sure he's going to be the first quarterback or I'm not sure sure he's going to be one of the top fifteen quarterbacks in the league that said I think as he develops he's got a chance to be a starter for a long time if he continues to grow I'm not concerned about who the starting quarterback doing haskins starting quarterback. That's I'm nearly sure of that and I'm also nearly sure that there won't be competition that it'll be Dwayne Haskins job from star so I feel pretty confident thing that And I don't think Kyle Allen is an answer starting quarterback I watch Colorado and play a few games last year and watch it on film before we played them and everybody watch kyle absolute meltdown. The redskins defense so yeah go into a better player than Galilee. So a couple of things number one. I agree with you. I think joins a better player. I think also agree with you. I think Dwayne is GonNa Start. I think there's the one you know possibility that you end up with this continuing and you get a weird schedule which leads to a very condensed training camp with nothing else leading into a season opener with no preseason whatever may be one preseason game and maybe maybe that would give kyle and in early edge I actually disagree with you about Kyle. And I went back and watched a lot of those games. When they made the trade for my actually had suggested that he would be a target. Potentially I I was thinking you know if they let him go He was a restricted. Free agent they actually signed him to a one year deal BS. I think they knew there was some interest in him. I don't think the Redskins were the only team that would have been interested in trading for and there was a report that Belichick In the Patriots were actually interested. I think there were games that I watched that he was terrible in and there were games that I watched that made it very clear. He can play like he's a sort of a system guy. You gotTa have a running game you know. But he can make plays he can make every throw. I actually saw guy. That's pretty talented. I don't think he's going to start. I don't think that's why they traded for him. And here's why more than anything else and I really want you to tell me if you think I'm right or not. I don't think Ron Rivera would be here as the redskins coach if he didn't commit to making Haskins work to a certain degree. I don't think Dan would have given the job. Rivera offered the job to repair or Rivera would have taken it and less. There was a significant discussion about and about what Ron Rivera thinks about Haskins. One of the first things he said in that initial introductory press conference is they had. Dwayne is a first round guy you know. He has said things about dwayne leadership commitment. All those things he's also said he said it after the Kyle Allen Trade. It's Duan's job to lose. I just don't believe that Rivera could've walked into a meeting with Snyder or had a conversation with Snyder. That said you know on the I. I'm just not sure we'll just have to see what happens. I'M GONNA look at the guys in the draft him and a look guys in free agency. There's a guy down here that we coach this year. That young that we believe in that Scott believes in Not exactly sure he will see. I mean he's got some talent but I can't guarantee you anything as far as dwayne goes we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA we're GonNa go with what we think is best for the team to win and to win and then. I don't think Dan would have offered offered him a job. Let's completely fair. I would agree that it played out exactly as you said it. That's exactly how the Jay gruden hiring played out as well. Well the what. I just described the way it played out to me is the opposite of that. Rivera said I like him. He's going to be a starter we're going to give him every chance to be a starter. I think he can be the starter for the ten years and certainly he's GonNa get an opportunity to prove it on the field and that's all Dan. You don't need to hear that about Robert. No I absolutely think Jay said that about Robert. I absolutely do but there was a big difference. J. Didn't have any other opportunities Rivera. Could've Rivera would have been hired more likely than not had? He not been offered this jobber. He turned it down. I think there's a chance. Yeah I think. I think it's it's likely that he would probably would have the giants job. They're very likely he would've had the giants job so he didn't. Gruden had to sell Dan on. Rg Threes. The guy believe in him. We can turn him into a drop back quarterback you know you can assure Robert and his father and all the people that you know. I I can turn this guy into a drop back quarterback. I mean how quickly did did learn that. That wasn't true. It happened pretty quickly but you know Jay had to do that to get to get a head. Coaching job. Rivera I get. My point is my point is he can still do whatever he wants to do. Once he has had coaching job. Yes but I don't see him. I don't seem bringing in cal Allen as the starter. Yeah so when I say that I don't know exactly the way he played it out but I I think that if the relationship wise things went bad with the way in any way shape or form or if dwayne played poorly then we would talk about it but I mean we with Rivera. We go all the way back to. Cam. Newton not wearing a on the bus on a tire. One of your favorites favorite. You know little rants on radio what you're not wearing a tie Find the audio of that. We could probably have greg find it one day but But Yeah but CAM. Newton was a guy that has had a little pre Madonna. He seemed to be fine with Ron. Everybody seems to have been just fine with Iran. I mean that's encouraging I mean Steve Smith senior wasn't but every single person that we've heard hat loved Ron Rivera Josh Norman. Who had nothing to gain because he knew he was heading. Outta town. You know said the best things ever about Ron Rivera. The players key Kelly. All of them have said you guys are in for treat so back to Kyle Allen for a moment so you don't you you watch this tape leading up to the game that they played in Charlotte. Have you gone back and seen some of those early starts? He was a five and one starting quarterback plan. Pretty Damn well. I think The other day I I added up. It was like nine touchdowns two interceptions a sixty seven percent. Completion percentage like He. He was really playing. Well they played some very good defensive teams like San Francisco. That did not go well. They had that Green Bay game in the snow in which I actually thought he played very well in and then for whatever reason I watched that game I P played alright in that game. He played just. I thought he competed. Really well okay. Well you also had some student numbers from Christian McCaffrey and some of the things he did. Run after the catch wise and making it easy gross running back I. I'm not sitting here telling you the Kyle. Alan can never play football in the NFL. I'm just telling you that Kyle Allen is the backup in my opinion. Now that's it. He's a undrafted rookie. You've got a great chance. And he only played what twelve game so he could get much better. He's not there yet right now. There's Dwayne but I just see dwayne having away more talent. I do too so we'll end up seeing how that plays out how. `Bout when d hall about the you know sort of the old school young school. Dwayne needs to be given to him. He needs to be able to play carefree etcetera. And he's not he essentially said he's not going to handle this well. Well I see that is enough people around the building or guys in that locker room telling Dwayne or telling the annual hall. That's how they see Wayne. Which is I think slightly concerning but also Dwayne was a rookie with the staff. Who didn't believe in him and it was hard to. I mean there's a lot of circumstances that went into how to weighing felt. How dwayne handled. How dwayne actually is teammate. He's got some new school to him. There's no question about that though and without saying anything from locker room stuff that you would look at look at some of the things he did on twitter or social media. The last year new school re tweeting positive grades from pro. Football focus is not a thing. It's normal to you and I. It's silly like let other people do that for you. Know Blocking people who put out bad charts on you on social media is not something that old school would do. Dwayne does that and some of his press conferences. I mean wanting to say yeah. I talked to Dan and he told he told the doctors or the doctor sold him You know some of the things. He's he's done. Publicly are not old school so I think you can look at that as as somewhat telling of doing haskins but keep in mind. He's a young kid. That's some great success it'll Dayton doesn't want to hear things that are negative about him tweeting out his good pro football focus you know reports and numbers and not tweeting out the bad ones and you know selfish on the sideline and taking number seven in some of the press conferences and all of that You know to me well by the way he did respond to this twitter yesterday to de Ngelo Hall. At least I think it's his response. Can't stand fake love you know again. I mean I'm I'm with. You like stop. Don't you know just make I understand that all the young people are doing it coolly but it just makes you look so sensitive insecure and the thing about Haskins. I've loved from the jump is I think he's very competitive. He certainly plays that way on the field and to me a guy that came out of Ohio state. Beat out. Joe Borough you know almost beat out. J. T. Barrett. You know a guy that was the in the troupe you know big limelight of of Ohio State Football I mean Hell. Let's be honest. There is in a game that he's played in professional football. At this point that can even remotely compare to the pressure and the crowds and the attention. He got some of those Ohio state big ten games. You know he's been through the gauntlet already. He's competed for a job. With urban. Meyer as the coach so I don't really see him having a problem with the competition or needing it to be handed to him with that said you know the marketing company and the Clothing Line Company in him responding to this on twitter. I can't stand that part of it but you know most people would just say shut up boomer you know And and and that's too but I I'M NOT GONNA change my mind. I don't see him responding incredibly well to that open. Discussion of competition really. But I think that's fair. I mean he should be the starting quarterback. He was drafted. He played well. I don't think he should be. I don't tolerate had to be demonstrative like better for it to be a consideration at any point going in and by the way if there is no as and you get some of this cut into training camp. It's going to be hard to even show that you're that much better. I guess they'll have a good. They'll have a good feel for who allen is but I. I don't see this is a competition in any way shape or form that said if it got made into one. I don't see Dwayne handling it well and also to respond to that tweet to the Angelo. It's not fake. Love De Hall. Probably likes doing asking. And he's probably been cool and shown him loving person and all he's doing a statement his opinion under Wayne as as a professional quarterback not has doing as a guy. I don't know I guess a little bit a little bit calling him. New School dedicated respond to that. If you don't Wanna be called new school don't do new school things. It's sort of ironic right. Dangelo Hall at one. Point in his career was basically referred to his me. Angelo. 'cause he did a lot of at that time young school things and by the way I think. Nobody transformed sort of the early narrative on himself. More than de Ngelo Hall did during his career. Here you know I think people felt much differently about him at the end of his career than they did maybe at the beginning of his career. But you know de. Ngelo probably had a lot of young school versus old school in him when he was a young player. No no question about it. I mean and I watched. We were in the same draft together. I knew de Ngelo Hall before. He came here in so being around him most of his professional career. Th there was no question that he completely changed. I mean not only say. He's a different person but he changed how he handled a lot of these situations. There's no question about that either. So what was he like when he first got to Washington in two thousand eight right? I think he'd been beaten down a little bit in Atlanta at least in the media and stuff that he had toned it down a little bit he he was absolutely one hundred percent convinced themselves. Which by the way good football players should be right but the halls never been anything but hard worker now in his first couple of years in Atlanta having a chance to meet him a couple of seasons it'd be around him when he was working out de. Ngelo Hall was the best thing that there had ever been but that's a lot of young corners so I got no problem with the or the way he's acted or the way he's transformed and and I got no problem with Tim Stain. Anything about Dwayne Haskins and I also don't believe it to be fake loved because I think Dwayne or Deangelis probably wants to see doing have success and that's the same. I guess I'm saying that because that's how I feel. I don't care if I'm wrong on Wayne. Haskins on a pre-draft evaluation. It was what I saw. I said it I believed firmly. I still have some doubts. I also really liked. Dwayne have had a chance to really get to know him have not showed him fake love. But I'm still not a hundred percent. Sure on his development is all that fair course saw fair but that but a lot of a lot of young people. Don't take it that way because they I shouldn't say young people. A lot of people in general don't accept criticism very well and they misinterpret criticism with the way you just laid it out is perfectly fair you know. It's like you like him personally. You want him to succeed. But based on you know you as an analyst evaluating him as a player you're not sure yet what's wrong with that nothing nothing. I think that I think it Dangelo took a couple of shots at him. But at the same time. I think what he was also saying is he was saying that he believes that the arrival of Kyle Allen is Ron Rivera essentially speaking about what he thinks about Twain Haskins and. I don't know if that's true I. I don't know if I buy that necessarily again. I go back to Rivera. Wouldn't be here. He wouldn't have been offered the job if he actually didn't believe that. Haskins had a chance to to be pretty good and if he wasn't going to give Dwayne a chance to be pretty good now that doesn't mean he's going to hand it to him and to me by the way. Kyle Allen Cooley isn't Brett Hundley or Matt Moore. He's he's a higher level than that because of the Carolina connection in in the system familiarity etc. Not to mention that I actually like I. I liked him last year at times. I like Texas. Aim 'em to me a lot to say that he's he's not more than a Matt Moore. Humbly at this point. I'm going to hold on. Let me backup the way Ron Rivera can present him as legitimate competition? So dwayne feels that if that's what he wants Twain to feel I think you've he's got a much better shot at doing that with Kyle Allen. Then he does with Matt Moore Brett. Hundley like to me when I saw the first of all they traded for the player okay. They sent a fifth rounder to Charlotte. Just by the immediately that that elevates that player into a level. That's different from the guy. The veteran that you're gonNA sign on a one year veteran minimum deal to be the true backup but the fact that he also coached him and so did Scott Turner and they liked him and he started twelve games for them. I think he can present him as a formidable competition like Duane. I don't believe I don't believe GonNa do that. You don't believe he's going to do. I'm telling you right now. He's not going to do that. Who'S NOT GONNA run is not gonNA present any form of competition stewing? Really why would you? I don't see any. I don't see any real gain in that I I see. Alan is a safety blanket. He's he said at the combine. What kind of competition do you want for? Gi- dwayne very competitive competition. He wants everybody to compete. He that he said we're going to bring in somebody. Anyone didn't necessarily compete for a job at all time. Wealth building it. You're saying that he's essentially gonNA handed to Dwayne and say this is this. Is Your your Gig we brought in Kyle to be your backup to say whatever you WANNA say my. My belief is that even though I don't think he presents it. I don't think it ever comes up. I think Dwayne is the starting quarterback I I would be blown away if anybody else. Became the starting quarterback besides Alex Smith. Well that's not gonNA happen. Well either. Kyle Alan competing for the job. I mean you didn't you didn't throw it Alex Smith there because you think that there's still a chance Alex Smith's here you responded. Okay also wanted to play this for you. This is Stephen a Smith yesterday on. I Take I've been told that the Washington redskins are not going to touch Too because they're going after chase young. That's what Dan Schneider wants them to do. And then that drafting quarterback that's what I've been told So we'll see we'll see what happens That's what I reported weeks ago. Okay the reason I wanted to play with. Stevenson said is not because You know most of us don't think they're going to draft chase young. I think they are And I want to get to some of that with you here in a moment. But it's because of what he said you know the reason they were gonNA draft chasing. Because that's what Dan Snyder wants to do. You know I think at this point when people say things like that they are just throw away default positions by the way totally reasonable and justifiable to say that any sort of personnel move needs to have the have it stamped. Or you know Dan. Snyder's gotta be on it and it's dance team he's GonNa make all those decisions but I there's no all of us know that there's legitimate reason to think that way. I just don't think that way now. I think that at the very least. There's a honeymoon period here for Ron Rivera. And I think that you know Ron Rivera and Dan. Snyder talked about the quarterback position. Long ago and that quarterbacks not going to be somebody the redskins are are going to consider it number two. It's going to be Haskins and they're gonNA take chase young but it would be frightening. Wouldn't it if you know a month two months into this thing already three months into it? Whatever it would be at this point that already Ron. Rivera only has a vote. When he's home alone you know and that that wouldn't that wouldn't be a good thing. What do you think about that? Do you agree with me or not. I one hundred percent agree with you and I think it would be. We could make this an argument in in some way. If it wasn't chase young you know if it was a another guy that let's just say people like weren't sure Or a position that you probably didn't need or this to me the easiest topic that they're that there's ever going to be and the other thing with this whole deal is you gotta keep in mind like none of these guys have draft rooms. A lot of these. Most of these guys can't go to their facility out of the out of the fairness issue. You can't go to your facility in California so you can't go to the redskins facility right now so they don't worry. Rooms are going to be completely different. This is a draft that you're not going to see a bunch of trades. In in my opinion people probably play this thing safe across the board through the first round at least and It's not Dan Snyder picture show. It's is anybody draft to the only thing. The only thing that makes it interesting is if somehow someone wants to move up to number two for two and promises you that or the Bengals WanNa make a trade or for some reason wanNA chase young instead of borough. I mean if chase young sitting there too I I would say ninety five percent ninety nine percent chance the redskins stadium but I don't see him moving out of to to take anybody else or or drafting to it number. Two Clinton told me on the show the other day he'd take Isaiah Simmons at number two. Okay did he that. Isaiah Simmons's the next Is the next Lawrence Taylor said I said that I love he goes? I Love Chase. Young but Isaiah Simmons is going to be the next Lawrence Taylor. That's how I would take and I said well we'll give you. Would you try to trade back and get him? No I would take him at number. Two wouldn't take number two though because she can go number two if the redskins take him at number two. Well I mean the problem is if like. Let's say that Clinton was right that all of a sudden Isaiah Simmons is being talked about as you know a top three top four. You know pop possible player ran a four three nine at the combine. And you know I'm personally I will. I will I watch them play. I've watched all the the the highlight stuff to me. It's chase young. Not even I mean I wouldn't even think twice about it but The problem with the With with the draft is that you know the redskins if they really liked Isaiah Simmons like if they had simmons sort of comparable with chase young like he was very comparable. Very comparable with Jay. Sean all right same. Great just say same grade They risk losing both of them by trading back. There's no guarantee how far you trade depends on where in the first trade back opportunity more more likely than not as five. You know with Miami so you now have Miami jumping up to take to a and now young and Simmons very possibly go three and four to Detroit New York and so you're sitting there at five and maybe you gotTa Hall with Number Five for for number two but you missed out on maybe the well. Todd mcshay calls it. The best pass rushing prospect. He's ever evaluated The others I think that he's every bit as good if not better than Bosa And you also miss on Simmons. I think there'd be too much risk for the Redskins to trade back and assume that they'd get one of those two players the five. I think that way too much risk. I think if if you're actually considering trading back to five. It's that you don't believe that you need a guy like chase. John Edge and you have other needs that are much more valuable no second round pick and you know if you were to make a trade with someone like. Let's say who two first rounders Miami Miami. If you're Miami is three first rounders bay right right right so yeah if you swap with Miami and get all their first rounders that having that'd be interesting well let's talk about it because how interesting this is where you get into. You know the possibilities because it's very likely the redskins are going to get offers. You know from teams. You know Miami. The chargers other teams that WanNa quarterback that don't want Miami to take two at five. They may want to jump ahead now. They could jump to Detroit. They could deal with Detroit because most people. I think believe that the redskins aren't going to take a quarterback. The problem with that. Is You know the only chance you have of making sure. You're ahead of everybody. If Joe Borough goes number one is to get to number two so Miami Scott Five they've got eighteen and they've got twenty six in the first round. So is that enough. You know most of the proposed. You know hypothetical trades give the redskins. Miami's eighteenth or their twenty sixth along with number five and their numbers. Second to me. That's not enough. I want to be next year. I as well. Y- yeah exactly like I. I want an rg three kind of deal to jump from six to and by the way the draft value chart doesn't do you any goodness. This is context. This is a team desperate for quarterback and by the way taking away a dominant potential. Pass rusher. So you're GONNA have to give up more than what the draft trade value you know. Chart tells you know. I'm I'm absolutely with you when when it's quarterback it's almost like let's take the draft value chart and tons of by two so if you if you were in the in the the redskins decision making group and let's just say that you had the final call chase young or you get. Miami's number five you get Miami's number eighteen you get. Miami's second round pick which is in a couple of picks into the second round and you get a future number one okay so you're basically swapping too I for five and you're picking up two first rounders second. Would you do it one of the first year if you made the trade with Miami right? Where's my am? Get their five. They're twenty nine. Just say I just gave it to you. You get five. You'd get eighteen. You would get thirty nine. Which is their first second round. Pick and you get their next year's number one so you're swapping spots two for five right. They go to you. Go to five and you're picking up another first round pick eighteen. You're picking up a second round pick which we don't own currently at thirty nine overall and you're picking up next year's number one. Would you do it you? You would absolutely consider that type of trade. You don't all. Yeah but you're you're gonNA take the cornerback out of Ohio State at Five Okuda. You have a chance where you're going to have a chance at of either. Okuda young or Simmons depending on what happens in the following. Pex after two ago. Okay at at five. Okuda more would be the worst case for you and me because we both love young one and I like Simmons to. You're not gonNA have a chance. It's GonNa go borough young to Simmons one two three four one. The no the redskins traded go borough a two okay and then the red sox would be sitting there at five because dolphins would've taken to it too. Okay okay so then got a chance. I mean I still see those players going one two three four no matter what even if there's another trade yeah so you end up with Okuda Khuda fine so you end up with. Goku you get you get a chance to depend on the trend situation to draft in offensive tackle. People say that it's a really great. Oh tackle draft. Nobody's in this draft is Trent. There's not transplant industry. Not that kind of player. There's a good players. There's not trump Williams but you can't that potentially rugs or Jerry. Judy would be not an eighteen. Judy's not there at eighteen. But you let them know that you could also you can also continue to trade but this is where I think of what I said to. You is GonNa come into play is do you. Do you feel like you're gonna get the kind of players you want at the picks that you're you're talking about because if you're not those traits might not be available this year. They may be harder to come by. I mean I'm going through this exercise with you to really find out what you really think of chase young because if chase shade young is it is. It is good of a football players. I've seen coming out of college in a long time as well as joker as good as I've seen a long time I think Chase Sean is an elite professional. Pass rusher right away. I think that he has every skill that I just. I'm blown away by Sean. I'm blown away by Isaiah Simmons as well but take young amazing to me and he plays a position that you know arguably is the second most important position on a football field. I E though. It's also a guy that you're gonNA draft that you have under rookie contract for five years. Yeah Yeah and by the way you know assuming all of the you know due diligence character all that stuff which everybody is said will come up. You know all thumbs up. It's not even like you would have to offer me one and a half times what I offered you to get me to move off chase young like I need. Miami's number five. I need their number eighteen. I need their number twenty six. I need their second rounder and I need a future I like. I just gave myself three first. Round picks a second round pick and a future first round. Pick from Miami. If you tell me that you're gonNA give me that kind of deal considerate other than that. Anything short of that. I'm taking a player that is going to impact games for years to come more than any other player. I could take in this draft. I'm in burrow. You're not you're you're not going to get all that but you could get three I this year okay. So if my if Miami offered five eighteen and twenty six to move up four spots you know what I don't know if it's enough I don't I don't see I'm with you on young. It's funny because you know I've said the about the CLEMSON playoff game for chase young. I'm like if you're one of these box score readers than you think chase young failed miserably in the game. If you actually watch the game then you realize what they were doing to him. And how much of a factory was in the game in this Guy Daniel Jeremiah di Dino he is the guy from NFL network he said Hold on let me find it. I had it up here a second ago. He said about chase young who he believes the Redskins will take it number two overall as well Said those who think chase young disappeared in the big games or those who don't watch the tape he was everywhere and so. I don't know I mean I love watching college football. We get a chance to see all these Ohio State Games. You can watch the tape. Simmons is really exciting. There's some really good players in this draft. Nobody will recognize defensively. Like chase young will in the future. I mean again could get injured or he could have some character issues that we don't know about all those things need to be taken into consideration but the tape says that he and to me Skye. Derrick Brown from Auburn are GonNa be two-game records for years to come if you think you've got Nick Bosa. I don't care what you're offering me because he's going to elevate the rest of your defense. That's the thing that you gotta remember. It's how much better does he make everybody else on the field. How much pressure he take off everybody else while still making plays in? That's what I see and chase young. That's why it's hard to move away from chase young for but not sure thing at eighteen and twenty six and you're getting a short thing at five because I I. I think you're getting Khuda and I see him as an absolute short thing you do. But I don't yes he's awesome so I I I like getting Khuda. He's not going to change the game. The way chase young will change the game. But he's the guy you can play bank coverage a lot but at the same time that's not necessarily been Carolina's defensive forte. They've been a cover three. Don't defense team and that's what they're going to be this year we can. They'll they'll mix coverages but they'll be predominantly single high safety zone team so I I don't see them as having massive need for that. How much college evaluation stuff have you done I I should do more. It's actually hard to watch some college film right now because the Internet everywhere is slow so it's freezes a bunch and a little frustrating to be honest with you. I haven't you know knock on wood. I haven't had Internet issues But I heard that there were going to be issues because in parts so many people are working from home. I guess is that would that be a reason? I don't know I think that'd be a reason. It also makes it interesting for any of these scouts or anyone. That's gotTa work at home. Like are they his then now. The they're not on access to the teams database there on streaming whatever they put on the whenever they put into the system on the cloud versus everything Let's just talk real quickly a little bit more about the Redskins and then I wanna get to some of the stuff that we haven't talked about since it happened like Brady and other quarterbacks So we when we last talked. It was sort of at the beginning of their free agency. They've added more players. Kendall Fuller's back in the fold you like that deal right. You liked him as a player. Yeah I absolutely like into fuller. I think he can do anything you wanted to do. Any I he continued to show that in Kansas City. So who who are the WHO are the corners next year for the steam? You want me to refresh your memory on. Who's on the Roster Maryland Fuller Day signed Darby You know you still have Moreau Moreland Fuller Darby. Those are sort of your top four. I think they still have stroman. Johnson may be on the roster What do you think about the Ju- just tell me how a lot of fans like to sort of you know? Figure out how they're going to the secondary's GonNa play at tea. And I. I talked about this the other day. Cooley for for most of us. I think the hardest positions to evaluate and to really understand our offensive line and DB's because we just don't know what their responsibilities are more often than not in certain schemes in certain coverage types. You know Take advantage of talent better than others do Which by the way Brandon beane. The Buffalo Bills General Manager said yesterday. We like Josh Norman. Because we think Josh Norman has been playing in a scheme that didn't fit his talent for the last few years. Sort of shown the Red Sanson. But looking at the coroner's you know Fuller Moreau Moreland. Darby Darby struggled in a zone system in Philadelphia. So you wonder what right? You're getting out of Darby but the diarrhea exceptional when they had a better pass rush. I think Darby's definite starter outside. I think you could start Kendall fuller outside. I think do anything. We saw him develop as a slot. I think having a slot is incredibly valuable or a guy that can play inside especially if you get the nickel packages like he could bump inside and nickel and stay outside and and base situations Moreland is going to continue to develop. I think that Moreland saw speed that he wasn't used to but I just believe in his instincts in playmaking ability. And and what he can do. I can Jimmy Scott some stuff to him and competitive nature where he's GonNa grow and get better Hard to say on Stroman. It's hard to say on Stroman. I don't think they're done there. I don't think you can be done a corner yet. Do you think they're done at safety with Sean Davis penciled in is a free safety with Landon Collins draft somebody? I think you're probably. I don't know where you're GONNA go at safety. I said something after the Sean Davis signing and we haven't talked about this but I'm curious as to whether or not you agree with me. I understand why they cut Monte Nicholas. Nicholson loose but I think monty Nicholson's talent in upside is greater than Sean Davis. You ever downsides way greater yeah I understand but I think Montreal's really enacted. He's incredibly talented. But that's obviously not been. The Rivera am always going to be guys. We're GONNA have their this isn't us. We're not going to build this way. We're doing it different contrary. Yup I play or not do. Yeah there's been times where Troy's look pretty good and then there's been times we've been out of place. Taking bad angles made bad decisions. I I'm not I'm not sold on. Troy starter yeah. He's a great special teams player. Not sold under MRS starting at Linebacker they signed. Thomas Davis you've played against him. during his career Tackling machine obviously a Rivera guy part of this culture change you know bringing a p back you know signing Thomas Davis etc They re sign Jon Bostick. I think we talked about the last time. Do you think that bostick right now. Unless they unless Reuben foster is healthy and actually Rian and Walker from the athletic had some information on that and said that they expect You Know Ruben Foster and be ready for camp Is the middle linebacker battle between Bostick maybe Reuben foster and maybe Shawn Deehan Hamilton with Davis and And Anderson as you're outside backers and I don't know where you know what you do with Coal Holcombe. Obviously he's he's depth at that point. Tell me how you see the backers cooking the starting linebacker so much interesting. If Ruben foster is healthy. I don't know Thomas Davis is a full time starter. I do know that I really liked it. He says this defensive unit has a chance to wreck the game because the talent they have on hand. I appreciate that. I'm excited about that movie for it. I didn't have a New Year's another Davis say that. Yeah they said that the J. P. Finley said that unit has a chance to wreck the game because of the talent on hand. Why do they always do that when they come here? But who's the Middle D- Gimme the linebacker? GimMe the starting linebackers right now today. Because I don't know where Reuben Foster soon but I think let's assume Reuben foster is Anderson is going to compete with Thomas Davis unless you unless you Thomas playing inside which is not what he's done but Ryan Anderson and Thomas Davis would compete and probably share time. I I t Cole Holcomb as your weakside. Starting backer and I see Reuben foster or against the bostick or or somebody inside that there will be competition if those spots but I can call the identify if they draft chase young. You've got sweat ion itis pain. Alan Young in Carrigan. You know you have you have sweat and young you know. I think most people would say sweats one D. N. Young's the other. You got pain and Allen and ionitsis and Kerrigan. How do you make all that work? I'm all for more players rather than less players. But how how does that? All work pain Allen and and I in itis rotate inside. I can carrigan sweat rotate some and young plays most of it would be. That's how it would work for me. Is that have a pretty even three man rotation with more Jonathan Allen Itis in third down situations pain shown flashes as the rush? But I better pushing the pockets and I think Allen can continue to be a pretty good rusher so those those guys inside and then if taking his on the field for me. I'm playing eighty percent of the time. At least anti-sikh sweating Kerrigan probably sharing more time at that other defensive end spot and maybe Kerrigan is a first and second down in more so and and even when I say that. And maybe that's where you get case. Young some reps out in first and second down is on the field. That's a pretty good position to be in right up front if that ransom what it sounds like you can wreck readily. Rec teams Why do you think the redskins have added two running backs? Jd mckissick and Peyton Barbara Free Agency. Because they're looking for Christian McCaffrey. And they're not gonNA thank McCaffrey. But you're looking for a guy that can do what he does out of the Backfield McKinsey wanted in and it's not gonNa cost you a boatload of money and you're going to try to find a guy that can run your choice outs in your option. 'cause it's probably not gonna be guys even guys believes he can run around like that and it's not gonna be and so you're not sure. I'm Bryce love yet. Does it say I mean we know GEIS's availability has been limited? So there's a concern there that makes sense right. They're not sure about guys from a health standpoint. Is there anything about guys that they may not be sure about pure backed no I that no no no maturity? Guy? Geis's guy says a little different but guys will guys to work. I have no problem with his personality and the way he goes about his business. He's a little different. They'll make you look it'll make you look at them a little bit. But I don't know I got close with various last year. He's a guy that it takes a little bit of time to build trust for him to build trust in you and he'll that he's a little bit different but no. I'm not concerned about his character. By the way I thought in some of the Games that he did play in especially that Carolina game. Wow like he could be a big time back if he could ever stay healthy. And that's going to be the only thing that I think you worry about with areas Tell everybody about the two tight ends. 'cause they signed both of them since last time. You're on the podcast Richard. Rodgers and Logan Thomas Watch a whole lot of Richard Rodgers to be honest with you. He's the guy that I thought had a lot of talent but when he was at Green Bay but it never really showed interesting though you think clean and green. Bay's at tight in grand made someplace you think playing with Aaron Rodgers. You'd have eighty catches a year but guys haven't there so. I'm not too worried about it. He's not overwhelming blocker by any means and Logan. Thomas is still developing project. I there few plays. If you look at catch tape that you you say. Wow you've got something to him. He's got some run after the catch. There are a couple of blocks. There's a couple of blocks of the ADS for the most part. Still a lot of technique issue for Logan to work out. I see some stiffness. I think he's too. I just don't think you have your starting tight end. I don't think you have a pure starting tight end yet. Yeah and there's a lot of discussion about like if they don't add picks you know trends not traded and they don't get something that the third rounder. There's a chance I know who you like. But he's not going in the third round izzy Charlie Warner from Georgia. He's not projected to go there. No He's not projected to go until later. You still believe that that'll change. I don't see him getting I just. I don't see them getting past the fourth. Okay I just don't I don't I don't I think it'll be wrong. If he goes past support than someone can be incredibly pleased to have him because I see him as a starting tight end but I just I. Don't I see my guys Charlie Warner as a big time starting tied into misleads? I mean there are some guys that can play the coke coke from Notre Dame is. He's going in the first round and I wouldn't be surprised to going top fifteen. He's he's going to be awesome player. He is very good. And then you go down through this list the guy that from Missouri Albert. I can't say his last name. Incredibly long is a flashy guy but didn't make a lot of players last year and I just. I don't. I don't really love the way he plays. Sometimes guys changes they get in the League Adam trautmann out of Dayton at tiny school. It's hard watching their film. It's hilarious actually watching. The film is a guy that can play a little bit. He'll go in the first three. Or four rounds. Rice Hopkins at Purdue go early I mean type third around a really I think it's and Trautman and the kid from Missouri and in the first three rounds and I don't know Oakwood somebody else goes much higher than that there's a Guy Kevin osteopathy from Ucla under rated right now. I actually like him a lot. Did you watch you? Coach him in that game or not. No he wasn't there. If Cole combat goes in the first fifteen year genius is I don't see him in many first rounds period. I don't see any tight ends in the first round. I know but you look at the kids from Iowa last year out and climbed all the way up to seven because he can do everything and coconuts. The only guy that you you're sure is he comparable and Hopkinson as expected better not really better football player than I watch so much last year and I didn't think he could separate because I also am sure that it's I'm one hundred percent sure of this because I did coach nate whiting whose data Iowa this year. Who played with him? I'm sure that they were not coach to separate. Because I talked to me about the great run blockers and may even date was terrific as a run blocker I we. We spent a week together. And I. IT'S FUNNY. You teach him a couple of little things and you all of a sudden watch him making. Db's fall down. I have videos of it on my phone. I mean the guy couldn't separate as making. Db Say he fall down. So I think a lot of these guys need help either in the run game or in the past game and they and they didn't get in college so this is a position that develop but there's from fourth to seventh route and I just I think Charlie Warner's one of the best of them. Charlie wonders going higher than people. Think if you if you start watching his film if you go back and watch the ball game our bowl game that he played in some of the things that he can do talk to him as a Guy. And this is actually. I mean he's not going to get to do a bunch of these meetings. You guys aren't GonNa Travel. It might hurt these guys with character in the draft to not be able to go do a lot of these meetings. That's not gonNA help him a lot. Because if you spent an hour with Charlie wondering you fall in love with him so I don't know he ran a four seventy to combine. I thought he'd run in the four sixers. That was not a good time for him. It's a good time for the redskins if they want to draft him though because they can't draft in the third I don't think All right lastly Well two things because I don't think I don't think this this it hadn't happened the last time we talked. I don't think Quinton Dunbar gets traded for fifth to Seattle. What was your reaction to that? I think that was probably the best the best offer you got. Because if they didn't just Willy Nilly Call Seattle and say we. We have to move this guy right now. They weren't at rush in couldn't Dunbar's a good too. I think he's a good zone corner. Which is what they're gonNA play here. I don't necessarily see him as an elite Manda Band Corner. I would rather have Quinton Dunbar than an extra fifth to be honest with you at least and meet the meet the corners that we went through too. But yeah. If you didn't believe he fits into your culture. I don't see it as the biggest loss and you got something back. Trent Williams his agent spoke last week. his agent essentially said Multiple Times. This isn't about the contract. It's not about the money Which I would then say. Well then it must it should be easy to trade you then But it's not Or come back and played for the Redskins The redskins are according to reports. They want a second. They haven't been offered that. How how does this thing end? I don't know how I have a firm belief in how it should and and you and I have discussed it a little bit to tell everybody I've talked to kind of the other other other day about it on this podcast. And I think that Trent Williams and Ron Rivera Kyle Smith and trends agent should all get together and they should be very clear on where they stand and what they're willing to take and what offers they're getting because they're not getting a second third which isn't saying things are going to play the game of and they can say this to Trenton his agent teams. They're gonNA play the game. This is a one year rental. And so you know we're not getting anywhere near what your value is so come back and play show. Everyone you can play there. Might trade value for you. Early in the season will work with you collectively. We love your talent. We love what you can do. Maybe maybe it ends up being fit. Maybe this new redskins thing is something that you end up wanting to be a part of and you're playing great and we'll work out a contract through the year we want you here. We're not going to give you away for four. I don't know what they how they wanna sue them what they want to take the redskins. Don't have to give him away for a fourth that the aspect waiting Dunbar Quinton Dunbar with for a fifth. You're telling me worse for Trent Williams I I just don't think so it's absolutely crazy and so I'm also wondering on this is our team's fishing with a guy like Kyle Smith and a new regime and believing they just want to move. Trent Williams you know are they. Are they trying to bait the redskins a little bit but what the Redskins could do essentially say okay? It's a fourth until you workout deal with Trent Williams. And then it's your second and before he worked out a deal. Trent Williams before his contract expires. We get your second. So they make this year if someone traded for Trent and they worked out a deal this week or they make next year second but you get four and you say as soon as he signs a long term contract with you we get the second. Yeah because then. It's not a one year rental correct. I wouldn't give them away. I I wouldn't trade him for anything less than a second round selection in really. I'd want a top half of the second round selection and if we can't get that Trent you're going to have to come play for his brother and by the way I'd appreciate the same way because he he can. He would not be good for transit. Fake an injury. It would be bad. He will not get a big deal if he does that he could do it. And he's not GONNA get a big deal if he holds out for a second straight year. Either that he he he just doesn't have any he just doesn't have that much leverage by the way the fines or more punitive now for holdouts And the Redskins you know I I look at the the disadvantage the Redskins have in. All of this is a if you believe that somehow disruptive I don't think anything can be disruptive right now given what the what we're going through here You know nobody's paying so much attention to it that it can be disruptive but you've said all along everybody loves Trent like if he had to play for him. It wouldn't be a problem the locker room but the the the real disadvantage for the redskins in it's the only one the other you know They have advantages in every other part of this sort of confrontation slash may be a negotiation. Is that they do have to see the. It'd be nice to come up with an answer. Left tackle before you know the draft. I don't think anything's going to happen until the draft but it would be nice to know you know if we traded him now. We can go sign. Jason Peters Two when you deal or we can resigned Donald Penn which they might be able to do anyway or now. We've gotTA look for a long-term left tackle in the draft if we if we don't think the Christians that guy you know it'd be nice to know where they are rather than it being in limbo clean. Yeah you just don't have the starting left tackle and you're going to end up having to draft somebody until you're hoping you get a guy that falls or ten is still there. So as Peter's you can't sign Peter's if you've got twelve and a half million on the books with trend but you could you could certainly resigned. Donald Penn. I know that I I and the thing that you've got to like about Donald Penn is. He can protect doing a little bit. I. It's just. He wore down through the year. He's not going to be a huge impact in the run game. And by the way you know how much I loved Donald Penn saying it and this is my it is fake love towards Donald Penn. I'm just this is where he's at and it's really a college teammate. Yeah he's my guy but he's not the you know the answer you want as the starter I would keep Donald Penn because I think he'd be a great guy to have your backup i. I'm not always of the belief that your backups. GotTa be Gironde Christian a developing prospect. Like sometimes I I like the idea that Donald Penn could be your backup or Thomas. Davis might not play all the players but could be your guy that is going to be the right fit for your team and the right fit if you had to put him in. GonNa lose anything if he goes in the ball game for a few games but DONALD IS NOT GONNA play I. I don't see him being a sixteen game guy. That has a huge impact. It'd be nice to have the answer all right Last thing I want to read this to you This actually I thought was interesting. Tie Law. Did you ever know him at all or not? I don't know Tyler I know obviously knows you ever get to know peyton manning at a pro bowler and he got a chance. Yeah I got a chance to to meet Payton a few times. He's he's awesome so who is in all the stuff on the ESPN and all the commercials. And I'm a huge pain manufacture as what he does and a guy so Tyler was on a Boston radio station Yesterday or the day before and LEM LE. Let me let me give you some background on this first of all or background from my perspective if you watch this. Nfl You know one hundred all time. One hundred list develop in the shows around it with rich Eisen and Bill Bella Chicken Chris Collins Worth. Did you watch any of those shows? I forget if we've talked about this before I haven't watched any it was it was phenomenal was so good Anyway In one of the shows when they were doing the quarterbacks when they got to pay manning Belichick was telling stories about how they'd be at a pro bowl and he would try to pick. You know he'd try to get information from Peyton Manning Peyton manning would be doing the same thing with Belichick and they both you know they'd have a couple of drinks and they both would realize nobody's giving up anything Thai Law told the story on Boston radio. He said Peyton. Manning used to buy him drinks in Hawaii at the pro bowl to try to get him drunk to get information out of him now. Something I didn't remember just didn't know ty law faced peyton manning twice in the postseason. An intercepted him a total of five times. Tyler had five interceptions in two playoff games against the colts. That's unbelievable but anyway he said quote. Peyton would try to get you drunk once you get over to the pro bowl. You're on the same team. Payton tried to get you drunk and then would try to dig into your brain. You know what did you see? Why did you do this? He feed you my tie and butter you up and ask you questions about this and that and I was always like Peyton night. Fallen for that. Shit I just think that's fine. I just think the whole Peyton manning over there trying to get guys on the Patriots drunk. Eighteen to get information is hysterical but but remember new. England was the smartest team in the league. They weren't giving up anything. Can you imagine if tyler leaked something to peyton manning about what they were doing I yeah that's a funny story. I mean the the pro bowl was always fun. Peyton Peyton Peyton could Payton's brilliant so. I'm not surprised I'm sure he did it with everybody. That he he faced and the thing about Peyton is he's not even trying to be discreet about it. I'm sure I'm sure it was very obvious what he was doing. In Thailand knew it and it was kind of a funny gag. Do you ever think about what your career and you had a really good career. Obviously like I think about Peyton manning and those Colt teams how perfect you would have been for. Peyton manning on those coal teams you know and same thing for Brady and and and Bella check in in in New England. But there's something about you as like this. You know white tight end number forty seven in blue uniform with Peyton. Manning is the quarterback. I that would've worked. Don't you think I absolutely think it would have worked? I have literally no regrets from the team on the one thing that I do. Not a lot of those teams Ben. Utecht was like his really good ten D- Dallas Clark in Dallas Clark in Ben Utech. You're better than both of those guys. I think they drafted Ben. Utecht in the second round the year. I I got drafted one thing. That was nice that I always like Peyton and some of the Brady teams and really the teams that stayed together is they had those teams just had great relationships like Peyton had some great relationships with guys and obviously I did as well guys like Clinton Santana but we just didn't have as many guys that state you know. How many guys that were there? For long periods of time so that would have been fun to be able to develop some more very good relationships. I'm not saying anything. Negative about my teammates but a lot of them just weren't ever very long. But you know think about it like you know Gripe thought about it come on catches what I've had every year quarterback theme offense be the right spot at the right time again. I I don't I don't wish different in my career because I think about it the other way. I I always do that and then I always do this. That my say Chris Wilson who was a decent tight end out a pit got drafted to Kansas City. Put special teams and behind Tony Gonzalez. Now maybe I would have done that and maybe I would have proved to whoever it was. I think without saunders. Yeah no I would have been good there. I would love me but he Chris Wilson never played for could've went somewhere where I didn't play so there's the flipside of it to not playing. He was a second round. Pick your year Christmas. So yeah he was a third. No got it right. Here was second round pick The chiefs picked him second round sixty one overall so it was towards the end of the second round but yet there were several tight ends. That went before you in the two thousand four draught then troop Ben Watson Chris Wilson. There's another guy couldn't believe what before me. Your look always ended up being a blocking tight in for a long time. Kellen winslow went. Obviously he went in the first round. And then it was Ben Watson end of the first round Ben Truant Third Ben Troupe to Tennessee or never been the other guy's been there was like it was like the draft been the other guys. They've been then hartop then heart SOx's name. That kitchen never went before me. You didn't create. Was He Iowa or Ohio State? Oh here he is Ohio State Yell High State. Ben Heart Stock Chris Wilson went sixty one overall. Ben Heart stock went Sixty eight overall and then it was Chris Cooley which the redskins traded up in the third round with New Orleans to draft. Chris Cooley in the third round at eighty one overall. What was your. I know I've asked you this before I just. I'm forgetting what the answer is what. What Route Wendy? Who told you? They're going to draft you sooner than the Redskins in the third round. Nobody nobody did nobody really. I didn't talk to anybody that I I really didn't have a lot of conversations with things. Nobody called me that day. Remember that draft was when he did three rounds in one day which was awesome. I still that were like. Are you sitting around you sitting around that day waiting for call all day man? I knew it wasn't going into. I tried to play golf. There's golf tournament going on at the public. Course see. I could've went like to another little course about an hour away and I was like I'm not GonNa do that. I don't WanNa get into the second round. Be Stuck on the golf course and then so yeah I went and I said I wasn't going to watch the first shout at all and I went and I watched the entire first round to couldn't play golf and then I got into the second round and I saw I mean that year a Lotta guys started to go right like I thought I could be the fourth or fifth tight end drafted and obviously that was talking to my agent in talking to people and I and I I should have been. I mean. Obviously the looks of those names. I should have been higher. But yeah I got into the third-round I'm like this is crap and then joke you were. You were certainly. I mean in that draft to your point. I looked through the rest of the draft. But you you had the most productive career I mean Ben Watson would have been second right yeah and killing winslow obviously had the talent yet but Clinton Clinton talked gibbs out of taking Kellen winslow cleanse. Told that story many times to me and others he he got when he wanted. Sean he wanted Sean. And my favorite line with that is gibbs said we we we went offense in in. Clinton said draft. Sean that's the best offensive player you could take their. Yeah All right Stay stay healthy. Stay safe and we'll talk to you. Thanks I we Head towards our forth weekend Aaron with no sports this would have been the final four weekend and we would have been getting ready for you. Know Probably Maryland against somebody in a final four semi-final absolutely well let let's be honest. We'd be down there. Oh if Maryland were in the final four I would be well I would. We'd be completing the show. That'd be on my way down there. Certainly either tonight or by tomorrow morning. That's for sure. to To my man Lou de on twitter Couldn't be wrong about almost everything you tweeted me with respect to my comments about the president my comments about the president have been about these briefings in the communication in these briefings And so you're allowed wrong on that you're also loud wrong about the podcasts and the downloads that we've been doing they've actually been increasing exponentially here since this whole Lockdown thing started and by the way that leads me to this. I appreciate so much all of you that continue to listen and all of you that continue to send me very nice messages. Trust me on this. It means so much to me to. It means as much if not more I'd be going stir crazy if I couldn't continue to do this in the bottom line is we've had so much to talk about so much to talk about With respect to sports. Nfl Free Agency continuing with huge. And we've got a draft to prepare for. I had Adam Schefter on the radio show yesterday for a half an hour Atoms very much against the draft continuing Moving forward on April twenty third He thinks that this is just a situation. That doesn't make any sense. He felt the same way about free agency and to his credit he said after the fact I was probably wrong about that because it turned out to be a really nice diversion. His concern about the draft is all of the predictions of this thing. Peaking two weeks from now and by the way then starting to peak you know in other areas you know for the first time in. I understand that in one of the things I said to him. If I haven't set it on the PODCAST is the perspective of those in the hot spots right now is much different than the perspective in other places. Not THAT WE'RE ALL. We're all obviously worried concerned. Angst ridden to a certain degree and everybody wants to stay healthy and everybody wants to avoid this thing and and you know not everybody clearly but most people are following the recommendations from Dr Falcone Dr Burks the CDC in there and everything but The people in New York. I have a good friend of mine in New York. He's got two people in ICU that he knows very well. Four five others that have tested positive One of the people in. Icu is very sick. and Adam lives in New York and he's seeing all this sort of up close and personal not to mention the fact that you know Adam Adam's wife is a nine eleven widow. They were you know. Obviously you live through that as well. So everybody's got different perspectives on these things But he was a very interesting interview with Adam. Go listen to it today. By the way on the radio show Tommy Sheppard was on the GM of the of the wizards. He was great. I I like Tommy. A lot and we talked for nearly twenty five minutes That's all available by the way team. Ninety DOT COM team ninety APP By the way it is ovechkin versus Gibbs in the ultimate DC sports bracket Aaron Gibbs rolled pass Riggins and Ovechkin beat Darryl Green in the other semi-final and just as were finishing up the podcast. I get a text from Tommy. A lot of you asked me how Tommy did I literally just got the text. Everything went fine. I should be out of here by three o'clock. That's a relief. Good to hear the Tommy is going to be okay. That's awesome anyway Have a great weekend stay safe. Stay healthy so much. Appreciate all of you listening I know that I'm sure. In some cases the numbers have gone up because people are simply board. I will concede that point and I understand that But there's been a lot to talk about two and we'll have a lot to talk about certainly over the next couple of weeks leading up to the draft all right Aaron and I both thank you. Cooley does as well have a great weekend. Dear best On all the stuff they're telling you to do and we'll be back on Monday.

Be it college football, ten SEC twelve pack twelve ACC to the NFL with got you covered. Listen to Golden State media. Cut sets football podcast. Hello. And welcome to the GMC's football podcast brought to GMC podcast network. I'm your host Jeff mellow off. With once again is my partner in crime, Mark Souza. What's up? Everyone has gone. Hey, all right. We got some things to talk about like Monday night football between the forty Niners. Giants. We got to talk about some draft orders as right now since we're over halfway through the season about halfway. And then we're also gonna tell a news notes also Levy on bell. Hopefully for the last time this season because him or is he not maybe say is he gonna show up or not is he going to report or. Yeah. That's better. That's better phrasing about anyways. We're just Monday night football. I my prediction of this. For now in China, Kim was the Niners will win this one twenty eight to twenty four and I almost was correct on the score wise, but on the team wise as the Venanas fall to the giants twenty seven twenty three I was one point off each team. Yeah switched. Yeah. But still twenty eight twenty four one point off. Yes. All I needed was the Niners. Stop at the end of the game. And then maybe I would have got the scores spot on. But of course, these are good game to watch. It was thriller. Thriller. They say this was a thriller. A surprising thriller. In fact, I was hoping approve me a hundred percent, right. But they didn't because they don't have the pieces on defense to stop even eight older. That's their main deal caliphate. Han said in the press conference after the game they need to finish they need to learn how to finish. And it's it's a little bit tough to do that. When you hard to pleaded. So not saying that there's an excuse air for the forty Niners. But you understand why they're losing some of these close games when when you look at the teams one team has a collection of talent sitting on injured reserve the other team doesn't so even the forty Niners defensively yesterday were missing maybe their best defensive player Ruben foster one of their better defensive players at least. He wouldn't have been able to cover Odell Beckham. But you know, maybe he would have helped make a play there at the end of the game. But again, I think the giants just with their skill positions are a little bit better right now even with their struggles offenses line Andy -fensive line. Yes. There are a lot of holes on both teams. Let's get real here. And honestly this was a game. If whoever loses really benefits more to. Yeah. I think we'll talk about that more later on as we talk about the current draft order, but you're right. I it was something that was on the mind of a lot of people watching last night's game. It was like who really wants to win this game. And who would rather have the hydrophobic, but you were saying about a about you ever you impress those game last night? Yeah. A little bit. Like he did another game winning drive type of thing. And it was impressive. No doubt about it. So overall, you're looking at was this a game that they needed to win not? But this was the end that says this is Eli last. Dr what do you think do you think that this will be you I- Manning's the last game winning drive as a quarterback of the New York Giants? That's a tough one. Well, what's going to be? What do you think I think so because maybe they win one more game two more games? But most likely those aren't going to become back when so I'll say, yes. And I don't see him being the quarterback next year. So you think he's going to retire in this final game? I don't know if he'll retire. But I think he won't be the giants next year probably retire. But hey, what if he decides that he wants to play and he goes elsewhere? The giants will turn the page there after the season. Yeah. Definitely. But the fact remains. Maybe they should have gotten one of the quarterbacks in the draft last year that's still talked about. But maybe just maybe. They are going to get Justin Herbert on the draft this year. Yeah. Some people have criticized them saying that they should have drafted darnold or Josh Allen or Josh Rosen. But hey, maybe they thought, hey, we'll draft the best player in this draft which is Barkley and then next year will address quarterback situation. We'll go one more year. Do you if that's their approach if that's what they saw. Do you disagree with that idea? It's hard to tell it's such a judgment call because you're getting here, both the negatives. And the positives and the situation, but mostly negatives to be a little more. What's the word hurtful? I guess you could say outer. Yeah. But you know, you guys stick by your decision. Stick by your guns, and whatever decision you make. You gotta stick by it. You got always thinks right citizen draft Barclay. Maybe the right decision if they get Herbert. Hopefully, they'll right Susan or maybe the do prospect. Yeah. And when you look at it, I mean when you look at it after this season, they might have the chance to draft the highest quarterback in the draft because teams ahead of them in the current draft. Order are probably not looking at quarterback. So they might be able to have the top quarterback from this year's class plus the top running back and maybe the top overall player from last draft. It's his raiders. Or head of them in the draft. I think they might draft a quarterback halls, honestly. Yeah. And we can kind of discuss what teams are looking for next segment, but. It makes sense though, right way. If you're the giants like, hey, we'll get our quarterback next year. Because all these other teams are going crazier these quarterbacks this year in speaking about last year that make sense. Yeah. And one of the main things about this is can they get one in free agency can get one of the draft. Like, what are they what are the pieces? They need in a lot of pieces offense of wine, especially yes. But quarterback offense offense of line. Or would you go with maybe a playmaker on the offense aside the unique and score points for the giants don't they have enough playmakers? I mean, you can never have too much. I think you can if it takes away from building since you're losing your losing ally. You need that quarterback you need a quarterback. But I mean playmakers like receivers running backs titans. Great quarterback isn't Herbert teams. Like he can be a dual threat quarterback. Now. Yeah. With ball. I've seen a moment. The ball. He's pretty person that. Of things, and he he seems to be like everyone's obvious choice for the first quarterback taken in the draft. So I'm not sure if the giants go there, maybe even looking for you to see if but that's up to you lie free agency. Not a lot of quarterbacks will be out there. We're looking at maybe Blake Bortles type player. He's cut maybe Derek Carr type warrior if he's cut but other than that. We're looking at teddy Bridgewater being out there. Maybe our g three. There's not a lot out there. Still Baltimore, correct. Yes. So he's he's probably like a one year deal. I'm assuming I'm sure they're going to transition to Lamar Jackson. So maybe Joe flacco via the like you look at the free agent classes here. There's no Kirk cousins. There's no Kirk cousins running around that could be picked. But I mean, there's not even a case keenum, there's not even Alex Smith. That's the thing is are you still relatively DC's got some of the taking played well before he gets injured. So I mean, you think it's hard to say that how can you say that if he hasn't played with the Browns room the last couple of games before he got hurt. He had a pretty DC like they lost the usher, but he had decent outings. Yeah. I don't know. It's hard to say that he still a guy I root for the guy. But it's it's hard to say the street face that he still something left when I haven't seen him play. I mean. I remember when he was last where he played affectively. It's been a few years. Right. Yeah. But I mean with the giants you gotta try anything especially losing your quarterback hits been there since two thousand four. So not a lot on the free agent market at this point for quarterbacks. So the giants will most likely have to draft one at the top. Even with this win. They should have a pick and the top five top six, obviously, we'll see how the games shakeout. But. What did you see last night that you liked from the giant side? You know, they were struggling on the running side. I mean, Berkeley had twenty times only Nessin seventy yards rushing. So, but what I really liked is there just the gaming Jarve really showed that they can still like pull this off. You know, like that throws shepherd really showed that you. I still got some of the tank maybe not a lot, but still some and it shows his receiving core still strong, but they still need to line. They still they they had a couple of interceptions. But there was one where it just tipped off Markey's Goodwin's hands and went right into the arms of the linebacker. So it wasn't like it was a mistake on the quarterbacks par part. It was just like dumb luck. And looking at all these instances, you can tell that this team has some pieces in it. But they need more. They need a lot more. Yeah. I mean, you said it they actually have a very. Impressive collection of ofensive talent beyond quarterback and offense ivine, obviously, but wide receiver Beckham shepherd. Those are good players Ingram at tied in good player. Barkley at running back, really good player. So if they can get the right quarterback, you could see this turning around, but they do need to invest in their offensive line. It's still it's still the achilles this team. And I think we'll see that. I think we'll see them draft quarterback this off season. And then go ahead and draft some line maybe two or three offense of I'm in their fertile picks. So multiple rounds multiple Lyman, I think so when you're when we look at it. I don't think they need enough player other than alignment and a quarterback. They don't need a tight end. They don't need a wide receiver. They don't need a running back defense. They need some players. Of course, they need talent. But first and foremost, they need to solidify the Linus grim. Wjr. You cannot win in the NFL if your offense and defensive line or getting dominated every game. It's just impossible to these guys are too big and too strong. We see it with offenses if their offense ivine gets pushed around quarterbacks have no time to throw defense defenses are too good in the NFL if they can just walk by wineman is going to be a long day at the office of quarterback Barkley had a good line. He could be the leading Russia right now. My absolutely there's if you could say if Barclay had let's see if Barclay was playing for the Steelers or bark was paying for the Ray on or having those hundred year games Barkley could. I want more eaten even more with don't you kind of think that if Barkley was on the saints or the Rams or the Steelers that he would be maybe leading the league in touchdowns right now. Maybe leading rendering good possibility. He's just that dynamic. He's that dynamic of a player on a team that he's he got he got let's say he got by the wrong team for him to be. Weapon early. That makes sense. Yeah. I mean, he he draft by the right team to start. But yeah, exactly it's first success early success known what I meant he can be drafted to this team. And they could be good. I mean, even if you just had a decent quarterback next e y manning at this point is he'd be better. I still think that maybe the they giants should've drafted one the high in high touted quarterbacks because of how low the draft classes for quarterbacks year because you're losing manning this year. You know, they were relying on manning to win or they were lying on just what maybe they just didn't see the next star quarterback at their pick. The number two pick. They had a lot of quarterback options. Right. But as of today, Jeff Sam darnold has been really underwhelming. Josh Rosen has been a little bit underwhelming to Josh Allen underwhelming tightly true would not injure. That's on his fall. These still wasn't playing. Well, destroyed the Vikings. He didn't destroy the Vikings their defense destroyed. The are you a great game? He had a great game. He had some highlands in that game. That's my lights. Yeah. He's a quarterback. Hey, anything in buffalo is highlights. Let's get real. Let's be honest Rosen. Allen darnold have not shown that their franchise quarterback yet Baker Mayfield as that flashes of brilliance in their defense. They're also on terrible teams. Right. And they might be great players. But in the giants defense as of today saquon Barkley is a lot better than those three quarterbacks. Yeah. Busy in the different position. You can't compare the them him to them. Right. So if. When they were evaluating quarterbacks last year, if they said, you know, I think Sam darnold good player. And I think Josh Rosen is a good player. But I don't think they're the next Payton manning, maybe that they were right by holding off. Well, maybe you should really consider anyone to be the next pain. Maybe they'll never be next. Hey, you I manning. How about that? You don't want that either. He wants to he want to though. Okay. Let's face it. Those playoff runs in twenty eleven he's going to be in the hall of fame. I know fish, go ahead in twenty seven wasn't for call Williams, those two balls and that and yeah and two seven if Tari doesn't make one of the greatest coaches of all time in his helmet catch with lake gum on his head helmet. Then they don't win that game either. So there's these freak incidences that make alike this immortalize guy. When in reality. It was the guys ran on the made him look amazing. So anyways, I mean, I get what you're saying. But regardless the point is had more negatives than positives. That's on that. Well, I mean, he's probably going to be in the hall of fame most likely. I would I would bet that he makes it, but we'll see but anyways back to the he's going to be in the hall of fame. But I wouldn't call them world is the point the giants don't think that one of those quarterbacks was a franchise changing quarterback than they were. Absolutely, right. And taking Berkeley. Now, it'll be remains to be seen. We'll see we'll check it out years from now if they made. The right choice. But I think Berkeley was a safe choice. And he's a really really good player. So they can build around him. They just needed these from Berkeley, I love Barclays, he's a human highlight reel. He is a difference maker. But when you look at the giants, and you look at the draft is for your future. It's not for right now. I understand and you can have the guy backup Brady alight. For now. That could make him into a better quarterback. That's what I'm just trying to point out. Like, maybe that's where they could've should've thought of knock thought of winning right now. Because that's that's the common negative about the draft is people think that you've drought. These guys you're gonna win right now. But in reality, you need these players to develop it's a whole new level from college to the NFL like there's this like the Alabama McCormick said we would destroy the Buffalo Bills, but rallied the buffalo would destroy them because they're NFL players in a higher level. They're at a higher speed. They're at a higher strength size everything in the NFL. Right. There's just kids and you got developed children into make becoming men in that same thing with the NFL. Definitely definitely. And you know, it is it is true that we won't know for years if the giants made the right or wrong choice at taking Berkeley over some of those other quarterbacks. I'm just saying at this point in time. It looks like they may have made the right? It move maybe that will change. But it is frustrating though, you can't we can't tell right now. Unfortunately is frustrating. If you're giants fan because you still have address the quarterback position. And that is the most important position in the NFL. Everyone will agreed to that. And their offense ivine is still terrible. Even though Nate soldier was signed to that big contract. He has not helped individually or collectively that unit. But you know, what else is frustrating. Jeff. What's frustrating holiday shopping. Tell me about it. Yeah. It's frustrating every year who's maybe the one person in your life that you have trouble shopping for ends down.

We just finished talking about money and football and the draft and we're gonna get right into the draft order for the teams as of today. Thanks to Tanka, Thon dot com. This is their health. That's an actual website is an actual website is great. And so the order the first we'll go over the first ten picks how about that. Okay. So the raiders are on the clock. Yes. Number two is San Francisco after the law to the giants. They have not had a bye week yet. But granted this would still put them number two is a loss to the giants. Sure. Number three is the near giants. Number four is on a cardinals. They're also to in seven. The jets are number five for at three and seven the Buffalo Bills who people consider the worst league right number six at three and seven seven is Detroit at three and six eight is Denver at three and six nine is Jacksonville at three and six ten is Tampa Bay at three and six so. Again, you said raiders Niners giants top three. And then who is it eras ONA, Arizona. Okay. Then the jets the j e t s jets jets, and then whose neck law flow or as buffaloes at six and then his rate Detroit. Denver Jacksonville, Tampa Bay ten vor checks. Okay. Tampa Bay while their way to us. Do you notice? Someone that's missing on this list. Brown's. Yes. The Browns early eleventh pick three six and one puts them at number eleven. That. That's it makes no sense. But okay, it is higher winning percentage. Do you have to tie the tie? It doesn't sound like it makes sense. But it does. I expect him to get closer to one then ten by seasons. And we'll see do you see any shockers on this list that you did not expect to be in the top ten of the draft this year. I will say I'm slightly surprised that Detroit kind of decided to throw away the season this early. I mean, I know that there at the trade deadline, but they gave away with just three wins aren't there? There's still chance for a lot of these at the number one pick. I'm not surprised that Denver is in there. I'm not surprised that Jacksonville's in there. I know that they were playoff team last year. But hey title. It's it's not just. Yeah. That's one way from a Super Bowl. But it's Blake Bortles it's incredibly difficult to win in the NFL without a good quarterback. Now, you can do it for a year two because of your defense playing so well, but let's be real. It's very very to replicate very hard to replicate that season after season and Jacksonville's, no exception. So for me, I understand why they're in the bottom. Ten I do. Expect him to win a few games. Maybe fall out of that bottom. Ten maybe twelve thirteen range, something that's also note worthy. After the top town. The raiders get thirteen pick due to Dallas. We number thirteen and they get the twenty fifth pick the issue cargo be a division round. A winter. Yeah. We'll see what the raiders can do those picks one thirteen and twenty five K. That's that's pretty good to me my opinion. It's good to start with. Phil. So they gotta get to work with the pass rusher. A wide receiver. Possibly quarterback. Order changing by season. Also, the top five the top five. The top five maybe the jets will move past buffalo by the top five is pretty set. I would say the raiders Niners giants and AirAsia or locks for the top five. And then the jets are buffalo one sandwiches. They see them staying in their locked positions like raiders number one Niners number two giants. Number three colonels. No, not necessarily, maybe. But I could see I could see the giants and Zona maybe flipping maybe the Niners win a game. Who knows man there's already played twice. So I believe there are if if they had the same record going into the end of the season, I'm pretty sure the Nyerere's gonna be ahead of them in draft order due to them losing to them twice. Yeah. Possibly and actually a very the Niners are on a BI week for week eleven so we will not know the raiders play the cardinals next week. Yes, that's going to be. We'll go along with go draft a big draft game. If there isn't a wins. They might fall out of the bottom five actually as some point very good. Very good possibility. And then another one buck near play the giants also when is that this this week eleven oh, well, this is like separation Sunday coming up and then week twelve the Niners after their by week play the buccaneers they do there's still there's these next couple of weeks. There's going to be a lot of games that revolve around the draft. Maybe. The buccaneers just tank the next two and then they'll be right in the top three. Well, they wanted that. They would be playing Winston. Yeah. Maybe. At this point. That's just a fact I'm sorry. Yeah. Winston. I mean who knows this point their quarterback is just turnover prone, whoever it is. But yeah, I agree. Winston is probably the worst of the two. So. I don't know. What do you? What do you see happening with this draft order? You think any team is gonna fall out? Maybe five the one team. I see leave the top five is like like, you said AirAsia or New York. But I can also see the giants getting on this little lake win streak kind of thing. I know that sounds implausible. But I just I don't know. I could see them doing that. You know? So the Niners raiders giants are sorry the Niners giants two wins. Yeah. And then the jets have three the jets have three. Yes. So the Niners giants or Zona whoever wins like their next game or two games. Could definitely go and out of the bottom five they could go into six ten range. We'll see and look into the mock drafts. There are some like these play rankings and in obviously Montross and never solid up. Justin Herber is going to go number one of the raiders in this draft in some of the mock in the mock draft, you agree with that? If he does that would signal the end of Derek cars career house, when I think it's I think it's all said and done, and then it is notable that their car that the raiders do have that option to they if they decide to cut bait with him before this year's draft. Then they only have to pay Mike ten million more on that ninety million left. This is kinda surprising, greedy Williams, the corner at Avila's you who's timer star. He's he's in Mont drives seem number six to the bills which seems really low for him. Yeah. I think cornerback is a little bit devalued in drafts whereas defensive ends, but he's been playing like phenomenal. He's a really good player. He might be my favorite player coming out of this draft to be honest with the I know Nick Bowes is getting the headlines, and he might be the best one is the injury worrying you for him the injury doesn't worry for me. But like, I don't know. I mean, I I know that he is regarded as the best prospect. But yeah, I'm not terribly concerned about the injury. But at the same time, he is a Bosa. Maybe is there a little bit injury prone as we see Joey I know that sounds kind of weird, right? That's like a weird association where it's like how can you count that as a weakness because he's related to somebody who's been injured. But I don't know injured in Ohio stating somber trained to Ohio State, but he did have a dominant performance against then number ranked TCU. And he's a big time prospect. I think I'm not disappear something about there's definitely special spark about him that if you're on Ohio State, there's some special anyways regardless I do think it's a little bit odd that he is like so called a slam dunk like consensus number one. Like everybody's talking about everybody's taking for Nick or whatever. Right. Like, Nick Bosa. Nick Bosa sweepstakes. Yeah. That one guy that people like this is the number one pick. And if there's not that. Oh, that's a definite everyone pick. Then it's not a very good draft class. But Nick Bosa looks like he's he looks fantastic. You seen them play. Looks like a monster out there. He looks. He has the speedy as the strength. The footwork of a great time pass rusher. And how good his brother is in Joey. This can only mean great things for him. Now. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I do you did mention greedy William. So. And I think that corner is going to be really really good. So maybe it'll be the higher the number six though, they say I see a number six order for greedy Williams. So what are the other team the players in the in the mock and the top six in the top six I see at all of our out of Houston, the defensive tackle so Herber then who. Nipples number two. Okay. The forty Niners at this point all over a number three defensive tackle from Houston shown, a Williams from Alabama. Who's actually a resident of Folsom yet? Actually, what today was high with me. I one point so shout to him. So he would go to the gyrus never four. So who are the giants take and all our Houston? Got gotta take John Williams at hyper draft. And because he's like so the giants don't take a quarterback. Oh boy. But I will look at Mel kiper draft. I said that they should take the lineman. But wait, they haven't addressed the quarterback in this scenario. So well in Kuypers drp last year he had them taking Berkeley if I'm not mistaken. I think that was the consensus pick was the giants would take Parkway. Yeah. And of course, he did also say. Josh Allen was give you the first overall pick. So there's. He's never a hundred percent. I feel like the Browns lint Mayfield very late in that process. But who knows? There are some players are. There are some what's the word. I'm looking for mock drafts hate the giants are taken off its Lyman. They're taking defense tackles are taking quarterbacks. I think they're taking the quarterback. Even if they have to reach for one to be honest with you or move back. They can trade down if Herber isn't there or another quarterback that they think maybe they can get in the mid around. I do believe that this mock draft to saying the best ranked players just from brink one to ring so on so forth at all third ranked player in the draft. Joan Williams is the fourth conferees the fifth. Devon white inside line Meghan LSU is still looking good. Greg little ole miss that off into tackle beast is here. His name is little though, his offense to tackle. What's funny? Put he is six six three twenty five not little he's anything. Put little maybe his middle. Name is not Greg. Not little. Oh, my that'd be amazing. Like, John Williams is six five and thrill one this a little bit taller, but heavier, but you don't want to much weight at this time of the year in football because not just the draft order sorts take shape, but the prospects you start seeing them on TV pulling in more important games like college. Even if you don't follow college football like you might catch the Sugar Bowl, right? Or like, you know, one of those big bowl games. Or maybe you check out the big twelve conference championship or something. Like that. Like, you get to see these players like actually like you get to put a face or body type to like the name you hear Nick Bosa. Right. He we know he won't be playing. So it's about example, but greedy Williams, you'll see greedy Williams play even doesn't make it to one of the major games you'll see him play at least the holiday bowl or the convoy or something. Well, Mel kiper is ranked Nick both of them on prospect L all over. Number two. So I think that's for defensive players. I'm not a hundred percent positive. But no, no, it's dry top twenty five prospects number one and two are defensive player. So like, I said before this is a defensive draft of ending and. If like wherever they go. I don't know. The dolphins. I don't know. They they have the dolphins taking a quarterback in the drought to which I agree with. That's probably know that is a team that I could see draw jumping over the giants. Like Jacksonville's a team that I could see jumping over the giants to get the first quarterback. I could see the oh trading off. I see what you're saying. Maybe they trade with the Niners. Or maybe trade, you know, like it right now the forty Niners would be the team that everybody would trade with because the raiders have the number one pick. They're not moving down. But the Niners at two if a team like hey like the dolphins. Like, hey, we'll give you two first round picks in a second round pick to move up to swap spots. Because dolphins I think right now, they're what like in the sixteen to twenty range, probably because I think what five hundred or five hundred teams sounds about. Right. So I actually think they'll end up going down as we get closer think pri- finishing the twelve to fifteen if you're looking at the top thirty overall players that are ranked things to report going through Matt Miller of Twitter, I believe yes. Number the first five six seven eight nine. I'm sorry. Eight players in his rankings all defense. So that kinda shows you that this is highly touted as defensive matchup defensive draft the next ring offense players number nine Chechen Herbert, which makes sense. But it's really truly incredible. How many like this? Honestly, this first round in the draft could go to like hell. Maybe over half the drought clasping defensive players. It's possible. Yeah. And heels about the draft. No. All right. We're going to take a quick break. But I I wanted to talk one more time about the holiday season is coming up and finding gives for like your loved ones like your mom or sisters easy.

We just finished talking about the draft orders as of today and we just finished up about Monday night football between the giants and forty Niners. Now, we're going on to the levian bell issue. Well, is it? Good God him again one. Last time today is fine day to check into the Steelers. The final countdown. Did it? Okay. Four hours away. It's a four hour warning. Yes. As as of right now at nine AM Pacific standard time standard weight. If you listen to our sports podcast. You would get that will horrible call Steve. Is there Senator time we talked about me PSE. Whoa. Anyways. Anyways, going on on from that to live. I'm bill. Yes. Is he or won't he will? He will. He he won't. He might. I am fully confident. He won't you don't think this is a pulley by agent to just try and get a last ditch effort to get contract during too deep here they dug into for it's too late. Now, there's no going back. So he's not going to Jeff Mellon office. He will sit the rest of the season is that right? Yeah. I don't know. I'm fifty fifty I'm leaning that it comes back because I think at this point if he sits the rest of the year, it's kind of a bad. It's a bad long-term move. Even though it avoid they'll happening. Even though the voids injury for him. I think is value goes down, which might cost him at the end of the day. That makes sense. Yeah. It might cost a long run but told I don't see him returning to this team. It's we said this every other week. It's been too long. It's there too far deep like we said before. But it's there's it's too late. Now, it's like you can't return to your girlfriend after not talking to her for three months. You know, it's like the plot of gone girl. Nourishing it. Oh, it's like, you know, the woman sets up this elaborate plan to leave her husband, and then she gets like into deep, and she needs a return never mind. I it's it's it's a break up the guy. Yeah. You just have to see the movie, but is it a bad movie? I mean, it's a good movie like entre. So I it's kind of. I don't know. It's a drama, of course. But. Yeah. Now, it's like, I think I'm Bill if he sits he'd actually hurting his long term contract situation, and maybe the guaranteed money that he would be expecting because teams might be a little bit put off by his actions this year. And maybe they don't want to invest in someone who they're not sure is still an elite level player because oh, you don't think he's a lead anymore. We don't know. I mean, I'm not saying he's not he's definitely he's definitely Bentley in his career. But I'm saying that he has a lot of tread that has been taken off of him. Right. Like he has been used a ton in his career. He was used a ton in college at some point. He just kinda get a little bit past your prime, and yes, he's young age wise, but he's not young football wise. And that makes a difference. I see what you're saying. It makes a lot of hits right is twenty six though. Right. He's pretty young. He's young age wise. But he's not young NFL wise is what I'm saying. He's still got to see I feel like he's. Slow some years. A lot of years left in them. It's not like he's done for. No, no, no. He's not done. But when you're investing in him, you're he's looking for money for he's he's looking for money as him in his prime. Right. And if you're a team, you might be like, ooh. I don't know for willing to pay you that much because then at least a year or two you'll be twenty eight you'll have another three to four hundred hits on your body each year for the next couple of years, you might be passed your prime. We don't wanna pay this crazy long term contract. Okay. I can see we're getting at. I mean, it's kind of the reason why the students haven't paid them already. Right. Like this. The reason why they haven't paid was because he's a running back. They paid other players they paid into Neo Brown. But we know if they don't if they do release him from his contract or they don't resign or give him a franchise tag. Or whatever happens. He's going to be the hottest commodity fray. We team though, still sure. Whether team he goes to I feel like he's still going to impact them, positively. He's dunk to be negative about whatever goes to if he has a free if he's a free agent unrestricted he's gonna go wherever he wants his choice. So it can only benefit him to be a nuisance to Pittsburgh to be honest. He will get paid in the end. We just don't know what the dollar amount of the the classic saying Mike Tomlin had a couple of weeks ago. Was we need volunteers not hostages. So that was a clear cut sign saying like we don't want him here. If he doesn't wanna be here. But if he signs the welcome him back with open arms like nothing ever happened die guarantee that Brown James going back to Cleveland. You know, it's true. You just it's one of the things I get. We're Tomlin's coming from and I get why some of the players have been frustrated with Bill. But if he was like, hey, guys, I'm coming back. I'm ready to win a championship. They'll be like. All right. Let's go. And you know, let's get you up to speed and of. James Connor will have a role in this team for sure they might split the snaps. If he does return definitely I see that happening that would just benefit the Steelers. I think right. You get a fresh. Very dangerous one two punch. Yeah. Big time. If even if they alternated series, that'd be really really nice boost for the Steelers. Yeah. Like, but do you feel like this this whole controversy in this whole problem is actually a problem? In what regard problem for just just team wise like having this whole contras? Levy on builds affect the field play. I don't think. So I don't think so the stewardess have been playing really, well, they don't look like they've been distracted. And they think they're lead. Very well. The leadership in Pittsburgh is very strong the front office is very strong. Maybe the situation would have crumbled another team, but not this team not this organization. Yeah. This team is every decade. They've been good at people's like very exactly it's they're one of the model franchises in the NFL. Absolutely. Yeah. The more things change they stay the same. You know? Sony, say we take a break. Yeah. But I'm still I'm making that I'm making the decision now that they're not he's not coming back today. I wish we were on the air or wish we were recording this as this was taking place as if like the last couple of minutes or something, but we have to. Unfortunately, have to wait until tomorrow to talk about it official, but we'll be right back red for this. Build around the women from the UFC to the extreme case fighting got the fights cover the Golden State media concepts women's made podcast the latest news of upcoming flights discussions previous matches as we talked to in about the biggest names women's mixed. Martial arts past present and future. When it's the women's fight game to listen to Golden State media concepts limits MMA podcasts. And welcome to the final segment GMC football podcast. We have other news notes to talk about the NFL. Nathan Peterman has been released from his contract. All bills surprising. Very horrible. So. Yeah that happened. Do you wanna talk about that you want to tell us? A mouse the Nathan Peterman era in buffalo has sadly, sadly, come to come to an end. So yeah, I mean, he was the gift that kept on giving get it interceptions anyways bedroom. Like I remember seeing yesterday that he his appeal article was amazing visits in Nathan interception. Peter any consider when the Grizz is into an edited to make it. Regular. So we see Peterman on another team this year. Now, you'd think that no team will put them on the practice squad. Maybe no way this year. No way this year. No, no, okay. You know, Jon Gruden did say that he was the most pro ready NFL quarterback when he was coming out and. Maybe but other than that. No. I think I think you're right though. I don't think I think every team will kind of push on that for now. Maybe they'll they'll consider him in the off season when they need a camp quarterback. So. Yes. And other got cut C, J Anderson. Are you surprised? Hm? A little not too much. I mean, he was playing sloppy. So it wasn't like anything big. You know? Yes. So he he gets cut by the Panthers. They brought him in kinda that one two punch with McCaffrey we knew that McCaffrey the lead back, but we thought Anderson would give them a change of pace. The really hasn't done much eight carries the last five games and McCaffrey has proven to be an every down running back. So I think it was a mutual thing. The interesting go, I think he'll get picked up by team you eventually. But I don't see it happening. This using really, no, I don't you? Don't see it t I c team for sure picking up here this week. There's teams Anita running backs. There's teams that need running backs too late in the season to really work with the guys I'm trying to get. Yeah. I mean, we see we just saw a couple big trades happen. But we're we're talking about like, maybe your segment third string running back. When somebody's hurt somebody bring in CJ for a look will they offer contract. We'll see. But I I would assume so yeah Peterman. No anderson. Yes. But. What other news? Do you have going on in the NFL? It's been really quiet today. Jackson. Yeah. Huge action is now the special assistant coach to Marvin Lewis has Bengals which I said this on the sports podcast sounds like Dwight shoot office job that's fake and just for some credit. Like here the system to the regional manager, congratulations. He's back with the Bengals kinda saw this coming to join Marvin Lewis staff once again, you know, he was he's comfortable there. He's been there before coming. Did you see it coming? Yeah. I think expected happen. So soon though the season, and then they do it. So we fired by the of Louis that is. But when I'm trying to get at is this just he just made up a he made up a title he made up a title in. That's what he has this week's Monday night football game. I'm not sure if you know who it is you probably do it's getting out of high priority. But chiefs in Rams in Mexico City. There has been some concern over the playing conditions at as tech stadium in Mexico City. I don't know if you've seen the images. Yeah. If you haven't seen the images checkout Twitter, you can find those images of the field as it looks right now does not look good like Jeff just alluded to they say right now that the game is still going to go on and Mexico. See, but it's something to monitor because they can actually change it to LA. If needed that is available. They can just play this as a normal Rams home game. So what do you think about that? Do you think the game of eventually just go? I have heard that they've kept it there keep it there. So I'm not sure what the official decision will be by end of the day by that Sunday. Need to make that decision by Friday. I would assume right. So they don't all travel. I would assume so as well, I just think the fact of the matter is this field looks it's all it's all Brown and gross. Looking. It doesn't look doesn't look. Playable at all to me, especially for football. It just looks like it's destroyed beyond recognition and playing on that is going to be a serious problem and had hope just no one gets injured because you know, step on Divet or something completely ruined their ankle or something of that nature. So hopefully, nothing bad happens. Yeah. They play soccer matches there. And also they've had concerts recently. So the field has been more more beat up than usual. So we'll see if the happens if the NFL moves us game for Mexico. It would be I think a big deal because they have that contract with Mexico. To do that. And I could I could see some money being lost. Maybe some I don't know some bridges being burned there. So we'll see how that goes. But it is something to monitor. I would assume they have to make this play there is because the stadium capacity now. Yeah. In probably the most. And it's the, you know, it's attracts. It's a landmark, isn't it? Yes. It's one of the most famous soccer. Plate not not feel the wise. But look what one of the biggest stadiums in the world. Actually, they've had Olympic events people. Yeah. It's one hundred thousand people at least I don't think they're gonna fill it that much. But maybe the Rams are actually in Colorado right now preparing in the altitude because we know Mexico City has altitude and. You would expect to have health is your thinking the south. It's actually higher than Denver isn't really fascinating. And it's their qualities really bad in Mexico City because Mexico City surrounded by mountains, so the poor air quality from pollution, get stuck. So it's it's not like anything these players have played in before in the United States. They've never played in conditions like that. So. It's always a little bit of a struggle. But that's also why you know, the kicking game is really strong and those Mexico City against punters can boom the ball kickers can probably hit seventy five yard fill those if needed. Seventy five yard you'll pay get this zero line in Harrison Booker or to the biggest legs in the NFL. If they keep that game in Mexico City, we could possibly see the longest field will ever made an NFL football game. You wanna make a bit? I mean, what are the odds you're gonna give me five bucks? And what are the odds you're gonna give me not the amount to one? That's a bit. Why five bucks each first? They have to attempt to the longest field goal all the time. And then he has to make it. Yeah. I'm not taking that. I can get better odds online. How about one hundred? Then you have my interest. Okay. I don't think you would do that. But one hundred to one hundred. Nope. Fine, whatever. Yes. So any other headlines, you wanna talk about in today's football party covered much of everything needed to be covered. I don't see much anything else. Yes. Sean Payton smash two Walker room firearm. I mean, whatever I mean he coulda got in trouble. It's against like smoke, detectors and stuff. Let alone like destroying a fire alarm. I don't know if we talked about it earlier segment one. But just to reiterate I thought what the forty Niners last Monday night football, super classy with having the kids from paradise high school there. Yeah. But bringing them on the field was something that was really awesome to see. I think having those kids not just an attendance, but having them on the field for the national anthem and also markets Goodwin. Odell Beckham junior before the game having fun especially on the field with marquees Goodwin sister. Who suffers from cerebral palsy? I thought I think those two things talk about a guy had to go through so much. Yeah. I thought those two things from last night's game really stood above the game itself for me because it products back to like it makes you just think sometimes this is a game. Like, yes, we take it seriously. We're big football fans. But at the end of the day like we're humans. I I it's just is a see some interaction that that some good stuff happening. The NFL we hear about bad things right contract disputes. We hear about injuries and things like that. But to see teams and players kinda show that level of humanity. Good in the world. I thought it was a good thing. I don't know. Maybe maybe go. And soft on you hear Jeff, I don't know. Absolutely. It's a very very classy and a heart warming. Yeah. Especially with the high school team, you not only lost their homes, but they were going to be in the playoffs and they had a forfeit that. And that is that's gotta be heartbreaking for those guys devastating for that community the communities affected by the wildfires in California have been it's been devastating. I mean, that's the best word to say. Because we've seen an entire especially those kids from paradise California an entire town was level. Like it's done like just a town there. Yeah. There are maybe maybe five percent of the town is left standing after all that. Yeah. It's really sad. It's just terrible. But yeah, I think we should end the show on that on a good note though on a positive that sound like a positive. I mean, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Right. We've seen some negative stuff. We've seen some really terrible things. But it was nice to see some humanity. Some positivity from that Monday night football game. Yes.
