"I go. I hear about miracles. Some of them are baloney but most of them are true. They're people that i know and trust and they give you details but we live in a world where people act as though there's no such thing as a miracle or who i've never seen proof i've never That's sort of legitimate In any event. I've often said to friends of mine like ken fish or others. That you know you've got to document this because people they won't take your word for it. They people are very skeptical. Well there's good news. I don't know what it is but there's good news. No there is good news. I know what it is. I know what the good news is. And i know what these small g. Small and good news is today. There's a film out called send proof it's about the very thing i have been discussing with me. Filmmaker elijah stevens. That's you yes.

'Giving the Devil His Due' by Michael Shermer
"Am here to talk to the king skeptic. Himself michael shurmur michael. Welcome to the. Show kings skeptic. That's a new. And i like that man i love it. And so your recent book giving the devil. His due a was a phenomenal reader really enjoyed it and it was really interesting for me to try to find sort of the the rubric with which to view you and your views and i think i have it. Which is why i call you The king skeptic but understanding what the skepticism lives in service of is what. I found so interesting about you. I'll put it in my words. And then you tell me if i'm on the money or not or if i'm way off but it To me it. It seems like sort of a necessary approach. If you wanna find out what's really true that we are wrong a lot and the only way to actually figure out what is true Is to be skeptical and to make sure that your opponents what you're calling the devil in the scenario have a voice to help you sort of find what is true. How close em. I perfectly stated that that's actual that's that's it that's the well. That's a steel man argument. I mean this is original to me at all. I mean this has been around for a long time. That you know in debates formal debates. You really should try to articulate clearly. What the other side is arguing. If for nothing else that you're not talking past each other that you're not having a debate that neither one of you is actually positions that people are actually holding so and yes you know what psychology is taught us the last century or so is that and the history of science is that were wrong about so many things and the only way to find out is to talk to other people especially those who don't agree with you

"Shurmur and you can hear from Pat Shurmur. Right here is Pat Shurmur. All he knows is that the Broncos offense is struggling this year to this point and their 26 yards per game 26 in yards per play, 28th and points per game at 20.7, basically where they've been the last five years. Here's the thing. Pat Shurmur hasn't been here the last five years. He's only been here. For eight months or whatever it is after Vic Fangio five, Rich Cantarella and hired Pat Shurmur. So while Broncos country is struggling through this Trulock is dealing with his second office coordinator. Since he's gotten to the NFL his six and seven years dating all way back to high school, your high school coach, Then you had three Different coordinators and four years of Missouri and now to in two years with the protests. Yes, there's been five different OSI's here in Denver in the last five years. That makes it hard to have continuity and one way to help the offense and develop some consistency. And that's a word. You hear a lot from The UCL training center is consistency. They need to be more consistent on both sides of the ball. Is to be able to run the ball to help set up the offense. And here's Pat Shurmur on that. I think it's important. You know what? We run the ball. We need to make yards. You know, I think that keeps us Out of Those longer yards situations. You know, we have some good runs the other day, but we didn't have enough of them. You know, and I think it's fair to say a couple of the games in the last month. You know, as the score stretches out, they changed, so we gotta do more early in the game. They keep it in a run past situation. The game ended at halftime 13 to 10, you know and Um, you know, I think I feel position with a little bit better. You know, we just It just didn't play out that way. When we come out in the second half way, got a three and out which is unfortunate. We gotta avoid that as well. But anyways, that Believe in running the football on D. I think it's something that we need to do more better. Is there a way to force the ball to Phillip Lindsay, without forcing the ball to him just just to get him or touch is getting more involved. Philip Lindsay. Yeah, I mean, you can hand it to him. Obviously, that's one and then you know there's opportunities for him to catch the ball, either. As a check down is the primary. We had a couple of those opportunities the other night. I know. Um He says. I was preparing for this. This might be a question. You know, I think it's good if it fell touches the ball and, you know, we'll keep trying to get him to see what I did there. Someone buy you That was me asking the question there in the middle about Phillip Lindsay, something that everybody in Broncos cut through is asking. How can your most dynamic offensive player Only touch the ball four times over the ball thrown to him once four carries two yards. Bronx just were not good on the ground, and maybe they have ended too quickly. So many three announces is frustrating. Well. We're going to go behind enemy lines on the other side that easily from Miami Herald will look at these dolphins Look into a tongue. Goodbye, Lola. Look at the injuries as well..

Love watching great defense. How about that though. You're so connected football you get so busy with your stuff. Because he's doing a lot of different things. I mean when you're fairly young.

Has The Electoral College Outlived Its Usefulness?
"Everybody I'm John Dan host and moderator of intelligence squared. Us debates for this episode. I got online with four debaters. Who argued over this resolution? The Electoral College has outlived. Its usefulness. This was a debate that we had originally planned to host with our partners at northwestern law school in Chicago. We were GONNA do it at the law school. Obviously that did not happen. What did happen was that we had instead of a great debate. Digitally has turned out to be incredibly timely topic. So let's get to it the Electoral College. It's this unique construct of indirect democracy that well. It's it's not a college as the term is commonly used but it sure is electoral in that its members who are currently maxed out at five hundred thirty eight have been the actual electors of every president we've ever had since we've had a constitution even those five times in our history when the popular vote went to someone else in recent memory that happened in the two thousand election happened in the two thousand sixteen election. So what were the founders thinking? That's a question that right now. The Supreme Court is considering in an electoral college case but why did the founders think? The Electoral College was needed. And what good has come of it and also what harm has come of it. Well in these questions we've been thinking. They're the makings of a debate. So we had it for really really good debaters said yes or no to this statement. The Electoral College has outlived. Its usefulness as always Our debate goes three rounds and our audience tuning it online voted to decide our winner. But you can still weigh in on this when yourself if you're just listening for the first time to this debate we are taking votes right now at Iq to us dot org that's q the number two US dot org. If you go there you can cast your first vote before you hear the arguments you can vote for or against or undecided on the resolution. You know what? I'll give you a test to do that right now. I'll wait for you. Remember you cast votes one now in one after you've heard the argument and it's the team that changes the most mind. Who will be our winner? So go do that. I'll wait for you. So let's meet our debaters. I up to speak for the resolution. The Electoral College has outlived. Its usefulness. Jim Bowie Jim. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me Djamil. You are in New York Times columnist and political analyst for CBS News. You are also an alumnus of our series. So it's great to have you back also arguing on your team for the resolution.

And you're a professor at the Cardozo School of law and Co Director of the floor Shurmur Center for Constitutional Democracy. You're also a host of the very popular law. Podcast strict scrutiny. So that's the team arguing for the resolution. The Electoral College has outlived. Its usefulness. Now let's meet the team arguing against that very low resolution. I let's say hello to Tara Tara. Welcome to intelligence squared. It's great to have you with us on one folks to know that you are the author of a lot of books about the electoral college including why we need the Electoral College. You're also a former lawyer and editor of the Texas Review of law and politics and your partner. I WANNA welcome also to intelligence squared Bradley Smith. Bradley Hi Welcome to intelligence squared tie. Thanks John Pleasure to be here and you are a professor at Capital University Law School and you have served as Commissioner Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Federal Election Commission welcome. I want everybody to know that was always our debate will go in three rounds and then you those folks out in the world are online audience. Get to vote to decide who the winner is all right. I think we are ready to move. Onto round one opening statements from each debater and turn those statements will be formed. It's each our resolution is the electoral college has outlived its usefulness. And here I up to speak for that Resolution Jamal Buoy columnist for the New York Times. Djamil your time starts right now. I'm going to begin with a discussion of how we got to the Electoral College in the first place and the think he thing I want everyone to understand. Is that the electoral college that we have the one we will use. November's election is that not actually the one that was ratified in seventeen. Eighty eight gone. Electoral College fell out of use quickly. What we have is essentially an extra constitutional mechanism to deal with the exegesis of politics as they've developed from the beginning of the constitutional convention and specifically when they began thinking about the national executive the delegates for trying to balance four simply four competing things from came to Hal. Choose and national executive They wanted a voice for the People. They wanted a fair representation for slave states They wanted independence from the legislature in. May had to deal the very simple question of. How do you actually choose national executive? In a big large diverse country they cycled through a few things Several delegates including teams Madison Propose Popular Election Others propose choosing from Congress But by the time They came to a conclusion which was at the very last minute the convention. They decided they would do this. Elector based system that each state would choose. Electors would gather together as a kind of congress of it's filtered through candidates They would the majority whoever won the majority of electors would become president Sprout Vice President and if there was no winner at to the house would choose on the basis of the delegations. No one was really entirely satisfied with this when they came to the conclusion but everyone expected more or less at the president of the Convention George Washington would become the first chief executive and this was a a straightforward way to get George Washington took become President United States. No one was really too worried about it. There is debate over During the revocation debates. But it wasn't a big sticking point. No one was too worried about mob rule in these discussions. They weren't worried about excessive democracy. Usually when the founders talked about democracy they were talking but a Fenian style. Direct ASSEMBLY IS NOT REPRESENTATIVE ELECTIONS.
Author Colson Whitehead on 'The Underground Railroad'
"Colson. Whitehead's new novel. The underground railroad is already making a mark as a work of fiction that combines history and metaphor telling a story about slavery in America in new and surprising ways whitehead is the author of many books including zone one and Sag harbor and he's also received a macarthur genius grant and many other awards Colson. Thanks so much for being here. Shurmur pleasure so this is not your first novel. Obviously but how many novels have you written? And the last one was about poker this is my sixth and I have to nonfiction and last nonfiction was about Playing the world series of poker and having to bone up on a game and and trained for a couple of weeks and crash course in order to play at the annual big game that was the no Hustle Noble Hustle. Yeah so how did you get from the Noble Hustle to the underground railroad? I'm always sick. Like whatever style is working in on the book and the last book was first person a lot of jokes. I saw it as a humor book. That's tried to cram as many weird jokes in as I could With the underground railroad. Well it's fiction. Try to have humor in my books but obviously you can't really have as many jokes for page in a book that slavery so that so that was good. My last couple of novels had a ton of black dudes walking around thinking about things and it seemed Have a female protagonist and mix it up and never explored a mother daughter relationship before so it seemed good for me to break out of sort of a mode. I'd been did part of the idea of this scary you to brighten the voice of a woman example multiple her. I mean I think That's your job. I mean. It's Nice if people say oh you got a female characters voice and I just think well. That's what you signed up on when you pick the book and said as female character like if you have a plumber and Drain you go. Wow you were the UNCLOG that drain. That's why you call them and That's why he did it. So it was hard to tackle slavery and get into the Research and really contemplate and immerse myself in the horror. Hadn't only people walk around thinking about slavery in a deep way all the time and Obviously exposed to route. I was very young and studied it in college but I had immersed myself in slave narratives and a very long time and now that I'm older you know affects me more than it did when I was a teenager in my early twenty s and so I'm realizing how much the true ours was not to submit my protagonist in her companions to Dante and terrifying. It also seems that I mean we're roughly the same age that depictions of slavery obviously there was roots and there was a beloved but in the last decade or so have almost reexamined it and in a way that's a lot more fearless and visceral and that you're kind of fits in well with that Well I think You know taking liberties with historical record. I mean I'm playing with time. Once Cora gets deep into her journey but that first section mergers George. I want to be as realistic as you know. I can make it. Which means a lot of brutality? And it means impressing upon the reader the psychological tortures that they were forced to endure so for those who have not yet read the buck. Let's just talk a little bit about the the story line We start off as you mentioned in Georgia with Cora. Court is Sixteen or seventeen year old girl Owners didn't keep track of their slaves. Birthdays she has no idea how old she has. Her family has gone. Her mother has run off years before. And she's a an orphan astray on the plantation. A man named Caesar sold down South From the north he has contacts underground railroad so they light out to the north availed themselves of his contacts. And that's when the book changes I guess I had this idea that you know. What if the railroad was an actual literal railroad would apprentice not so much of a full story? Was that the first like one of the first things that you came upon when you were yes about. Sixteen years ago I was thinking. Oh isn't funny like when you're a kid and I hear about anything other little subway and that was like one little well actually on twitter. I'll search for the entire book and it'll be teenagers in school. Like Oh missy stupid. She thinks of underground wherever and as always like a couple of those a day. So I think it's a common Fantasy the notion and then I was thinking mcdan- to a story like what if every state Georgia South Carolina North Carolina. She goes through is a different state of American possibility. And so I was thinking about how each different character and the first place she ends up is South Carolina which is seemingly benevolent paternalistic place. Where a lot of programs for black social uplift jobs programs housing North Carolina is a white supremacist state. Where black people were outlawed and not allowed to step over the state line and so I was trying to sort of tweak American history to expose various tensions and I mean did you sort of create certain rules for yourself like well. This is going to be this part of me. Maintain kind of historical accuracy and integrity. And I will place these sort of discreet. What could have been or what might have been or what was then and not there within Georgia where we meet on the plantation going to be very realistic and traditional depiction of plantation life. And then the first gets the WHEEL ROAD. She looks up and sees a skyscraper and that's As a writer that's why I'm GonNa let it rip and have fun and go crazy and and the beaters notions and it's a you know. Obviously a big signs of the reader that we're not I think you know. I thought the Book Sixteen years ago and initially in for many years each state took place in a very different time frame and so South Carolina would have been like in this very stylized future place with with gene experiments and enslaves bread for different roles. And it would have been an fantastic. Gestures would have been much more broad and a sort of cloud atlas type style and so you're in a different world and the North Carolina chapter was going to some sort of fifty suburbia Myst- sort of Eisenhower Era America. That was the default for many years of the Voice of the book and a structure and then has to be read and as mentioned in the review. Glad to see it a hundred years of solitude which I read when I was in high school and had been an impact on me and I read it a few months before I started writing this book and it just seemed what if I just toned it down and didn't have to have these broad gestures ever sort of my default setting. There's a section in the book where she's a living exhibit in a museum and she acts out scenes from a plantation and a slave ship behind glass for the museum's patrons and I feel like five years ago would have been a ten page. Like huge like setpiece announced like two pages. It's interesting because I think just in the paper today. There was a photo from one of these museums. Where you know wasn't the Museum of Living Wonders but place where they reenact an earlier incarnation of America and you know and there were two African American people dressed up in costume. The first world's fairs you know often had an jungle natives and garb Dancing around to fit some some some sort of idea of darkest Africa Their various African pygmies were you know paraded For the delectation of American audiences you know once I decided not to make a historical novel and play with Time. Allowed to bring in things like that. Which occurred in eighteen fifty but were part of America in the late nineteenth century and the various things about eugenics and the Holocaust which I bring in. That's novel eighteen fifty but they ranked true and so I think another rule of besides concision was stick to the truth and not the facts and so There seem to be a truth in that museum. Section and where core funders in North Carolina that. I wanted to be loyal to even if it didn't actually
Browns Make It Official
"We will start with the official news out of Cleveland Scavenge to ban skis hired by the browns. They announce officially on Monday. He's thirty seven. Spent fourteen seasons as an assistant in Minnesota but has never been a head coach at any level level his entire. NFL coaching career. As I mentioned has been with one organization the Minnesota Vikings Stansky took over play calling duties on offense late in the two thousand eighteen season. Minnesota ran the ball. Forty seven percent of the time with Danske asked the play caller. That's the second highest rate in that span trailing only the Baltimore Ravens was introduced at a press conference just a little while ago. I the foremost success starts with people and I know we'll talk a lot about culture but it is absolutely about the people and everybody knows the Harry Truman quote. It's amazing what you can accomplish when no one cares who gets. That's the credit and that's what I believe. We have in our building. We have great people. I know we're going to add to it will hire G. G. M. here in the next week can or two and we're going to add to this culture that that we're building here and we have the right people and again. I can't stress enough. How excited I am the be? Just a part of did you know to use a basketball terms to my dad can understand this. I want to be the point guard for this organization. I want to bring the ball up then I wanNA share the basketball and let so what else get an easy bucket though smiling over there. WE'RE NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA speak anything into existence right now I can. I promise you that we're GONNA work. I've already spoken to a few of our players already. And that's what I'm about I'm about working and I'm about putting a foundation together the other. We will be methodical about it. We will not skip. Step two two and three to get to four. We're GONNA start in the foundation and then we're going to reinforce foundation Shen said we can build upon it and when I'm talking about this I'm talking about schemes and technique will be diligent about working with our players so that they can develop into the the best versions of themselves and ultimately we're building a foundation for what we hope is a championship. Effort will have a culture of accountability. We'll have structures is in place the players will understand our rules. And what we're about and we're going to demanding and we're going to hold each player accountable. Because ultimately I know this about players they they May Not come out and ask you for that. But that's what they want. Well perhaps the tenth. TIME IS THE CHARM IN CLEVELAND. Stansky is the tenth full time head coach Wjr. The browns have hired since returning to the League in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine that is the most in the league over that span of the previous nine. None have posted a winning record. Heard and not a single one has lasted more than four seasons continuity and consistency has been a real issue in Cleveland. Victor certainly something they'd like to you see changes to fanciest step in the right direction. In your opinion will I believe he is and I think that consistency where it is important. And right because you put up that list of all the coaches and the coaches that they've they've pretty much funneled through throughout the years can you provide that level of stability that they've been seeking for almost a year in and year out. Can you provide that for their now. The thing I do like about Stansky a fan ski is that he has experience with creating plays for two star receivers and I think that's something that's going to have to translate over to the Cleveland. Browns obviously with Odell Beckham junior junior and Jarvis Landry and having that experience I'm sure enticed of that for an office inside bring him in and understanding that they got to get the best out of these players in the best out of all their play makers obviously nick included In the backfield now is he going to be a leader of men and he is he going to be able to handle. The Eagles and the different personalities is that are in that locker room. Desk the biggest question that still remains to be seen. It's defense gas interviewed with the browns. Before in fact it's believed that he was the first source of politics but Desta several seasons ago and and it didn't work out. Matt you spent time with him as part of that Minnesota Vikings Organization. What can you tell us right? He he was a young quarterback coach at the time. And so when I got there was actually a little bit older than he was which is an interesting dynamic but at the same time. He's been all around that building. You know he's an administrative assistant and when he started there then. He was a quarterback coach. He's I've been with the running backs he's been with the wide receivers so he's been in all the different elements of the offensive side of the ball. He's seen the ups and downs. He's seen how free agency can impact so he's got a great feel feel. He's a great leader. He's got a presence about himself in the other thing that I think that the Cleveland browns are probably drawn to is the simple fact that this is a very quarterback friendly offensive structure that he's presented presented in for a guy like Baker Mayfield that had had his struggles last year. And maybe some confidence issues. Maybe not though. Let's see the press conference the same time. It's a quarterback friendly. There's a lot of play action. There's a lot of movement of the pockets. A Lotta easy throws to be made screen. And then there's like you said that balance forty seven percent percent of the time the run the ball. There's great balance in that offensive structure in for a young quarterback and going into his third year after some struggles. I think this is a great fit for that organization Asian and going back to when they actually made this higher People in Cleveland were telling me that it was actually his run game because we see what he was able to do with Dowling Cook and how he was able to make become a good player to really a great one and he's a central part of that offense that we now see in Minnesota and that was a big part of it but in terms of now Cleveland going forward looking for GM the way it was explained to me is they really want these to head coach and gm to work as one. This is why they moved on. From John Dorsey Percy and Freddie Kitchens. They didn't feel like this was working together. So they're looking for someone who has the same vision and the analytics department obviously is of of crucial part of Cleveland. And what they're looking for a head coach and I think that's why Stefanski became that lead candidate because he's accepting of it. He wants to be part of that and You know I think I saw some reports out there about how Cleveland is demanding that their head coach presents the game plan to ownership and really the way it was explained to me. It's not so much that they want to see the game plan. They just want everyone to be in sync to go over to make sure they're all on the same page headed into the game. Well you can't blame him and and that is something that clearly was not the case. I think you make a great point. It's poor in that somebody come in and be able to work and mold Baker Mayfield but also be able to be the CEO and run this whole organization and have everybody else be accountable. I think Freddie Kitchens might have had one of those two things that went by the wayside outside the quarterback with the hiring in Cleveland. What it does mean? Is that every chair on the head. Coaching carousel is now accounted for. The browns were the fifth and final team to hire a new head coach in the off season. Three of the hires tires Stefanski as we just discussed Joe Judge with the giants and Matt Raw and Carolina our first time. NFL head coaches the other two quite the contrary contrary Mike McCarthy in Dallas Ron Rivera in Washington they will get a second chance or in some cases third or fourth various established. NFL head coaches of of all the five. Who Intrigues you? The most in their new spot intrigues me is Matt Rule. I WanNa see what really transpires here right. He seven years sixty million dollar contract. That's a big commitment big commitment. I mean we might need to think about going into coach. That's it has everything else that they're also saying that they're making a commitment to Cam Newton with the type of style and the offensive structured. That they've set up McCaffrey's there I mean they've got the pieces of the puzzle there now. It's interesting to see how that that offensive structure from college translates to the NFL. which is I mean? There's been guys like chip Kelly in the past right John Harbaugh's price guy. That's been the most successful but that was more of a pro style offense with the most the most recent Kingsbury in Arizona so cliff Kingsbury. Excuse me it's been a mixed bag. There's no question. Let me ask you this just circling back to something you said by hiring Matt rule it you believe this means a commitment to Cam Newton. Can you explain why why I just think that The Baylor and watching their offense of structure and the RPO that takes place that's run pass options and all the different things that they're well versed in and that the Baylor offense has been historically historically very successful with in terms of that offense of structure I just think that that Fits Cam Newton's game very well and so I believe that that's a statement saying look. We wanted to bring somebody in here that you're going to be comfortable in this type of offense of structure and go out and be able to put yourself in a position to have success extent to intrigue you for me. Is Joe Judge my beloved giants. I think well I just think because going into it. Once I saw the Vacancy Happen at the head coaching position I was all right. The giants are GonNa come in here and get either like a Ron Rivera type or even McCarthy and get a guy that will come in and commanding presence. Once he walks into the building and I think with the hiring of Joe Judge just left me like okay I. It felt like the same cycle almost felt like coach mcadoo a couple years ago when you give a guy a shot and bring him in if he can transcend The coaching position or the year. After that when you bring in Pat Shurmur and you try to bring take a chance on another guy. Felt like we're taking another chance on another guy but granted. I must say I loved after the press conference I loved his mannerisms I love. He literally embodied what the New York Giants Football Organization is all about when he stepped up there on that podium Liam so I say that with a grain of salt because I love the press conference and I think he's going to bring something different than the other two coaches did in the past. But I still left me scratching my head in terms of who was out there here in the type of guys that could've came in that building and commanded a present these guys by the way Matt Rule and Gioja Geno. It's not about winning the press coverage but they did rule who was must see TV. I was just watching. He's missing time with the giants. Who so I knew all about? He's got does I think you know obviously recruiting such a big part of being a head coach in college. You don't mean to recruit You know when you're in the NFL. Which is why? I'm an agreement with you. I think that is the most enticing match COPA or at least the situation of the coaches just because you just look at history and making that jump from college the NFL. It's not easy and there just hasn't been a high success rate there. I think obviously he spent a little time with a giant. So it's not like he's
"shurmur" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"To teach a new language with Pat Shurmur it's the same language so conceptually there may be some of the same process is how to get there he may just have a different way of how to do it and he really values the run game I understand that when he was looking to improve knowing that he lied many was going to be there I know juror like was definitely one of those quarterbacks of his on his radar yeah I don't know if that means anything because everybody's at all yeah I love that guy you don't think the new head football coach with the with the Browns wasn't singing praises for Johnny meant I'm not Johnny Manziel but our a feel judged as failing don't don't don't yeah we can do these things with this guy and you know what you know what was that all about what was a cleaning experience all about you hire a great general manager you know and you don't you don't see that through what what what are you doing what I mean and then the owner fired the general manager because he doesn't want to part with the coach and you know some dumb as owners out there too just because you have money doesn't mean it's you understand this sport and it's clear that there are some teams out there that don't understand what a good organization should look like the Cleveland Browns is a classic organization that don't understand what a good team looks like on a good organization look like John Elway on the other hand for as much as he has made this a turnstile position for the office of court date and really for the head coach to there is something to be said about John Elway run in it because he knows what it looks like he knows what it looks like he knows the way it's supposed to feel and he made a mistake hurry with Camarillo that was the bottom line that was a must state not told everybody on his radio station and wrote that rolled with us every single day this guy has got to be better and I told you ways that he could be better just finding ways to get the quarterback easy trolls we can count maybe three games this year where it looked like the all fans gave the quarterback easy throws that shouldn't be the case which is fine every twelve thirteen games where it looks like the quarterback got easy throws India every now and then you just got to deal with somebody's got to number all right we're gonna come back I will get into our poll question in your thoughts about Pat Shurmur as the new offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos it's big Alan Jo Jo on K. away the voice of Colorado right now south and I twenty five right around seventy got a couple of lanes blocked it's gonna take you all the way back to the boulder turnpike rest of I twenty five has some slow spots in it certainly nothing too bad the last of the accident on the northbound side is it eighty fourth should be out of the way two two five meanwhile at south downside next it at I live in the left lane has you backed up all the way back to I seventy watch for major delays there a westbound I. seventy getting make your way over the elevated portion and west bound to.
Broncos Finalizing Deal to Make Pat Shurmur New Offensive Coordinator
"Well we just talk to my class are brokers insider who told us that the deal is done with that tactic Schirmer to be the new see for the Denver Broncos official press release from the team hopefully coming sometime before the end of the week big al with Schirmer being the new offense of coordinator what do you see as the pros and cons for this this young this young offense with the very young rookie quarterback is gonna be going into your to what I'm looking for are the things that that you can give a team and that's easy to roles and I always talk about this because I believe that that's the key to winning football games in this league how can you create an easy throw a one on one getting the guy wide open like we saw Devine to Adam's last night plan for the Packers you know the Packers go with the heavy formation they run a play that look like it's going to be a post but it then it turns into a corner is a seven right and then you look up and you say all my goodness the guy has a football it's one on one coverage he makes one guy miss and any out runs the coverage that's it easy to roll okay it's not fit the ball in the window it's not a drop back play act soon getting a guide you know own a seventeen yard dig route it's none of those things it's making the girls that the good players make to wide open guys but you have to design those plays for those guys to be wide open and the quarterback shouldn't be surprised when a wide open and when they're not wide open take the ball and run it that's what the good teams in the NFL do that's how you win football games in this business by getting your quarterback easy throws that you can feel good about and we didn't do that especially not against the Kansas City Chiefs are we rich gang real and I hate to see guys getting fired trust me it's it's not it's it's you know nobody wants to see that I wish there was a way that he could have stayed on and work with the quarterbacks something of that nature but maybe it's maybe it's too muddy if he's in Rome but you know it just we just have to have a change in and once again the greatest throws in the NFL aren't necessarily the ones that are forty M. fifty yards down the field like we saw this weekend but we also saw we also saw Patrick my homes we were out to the running back I think it was Williams out of the backfield on what looked like to be a six star pass it ended up being a seventeen yard touchdown the design of the play against the covers that was played was perfect and the guy had a free run to the end zone I mean those are the plays that you expect out of a great offensive coordinator and that's certainly what I'm looking forward Pat Shurmur who spent a lot of time with Andy Reid and Philadelphia I take it I think he was there for at least ten seasons with Andy Reid going from offense of line coach tidy and coats two quarterbacks coach so he understands the offense it's complete and of course in that Minnesota offense that's what we have to go last because that's where he was calling plays exclusively you look at that team and what they were able to do and the way that they brought on Adam Thielen out of no where to become a star well you know that he understands what kind of receipt what the receivers need to look like and not how they need to run there are so many different ways that we can look at this as be an improvement to be an improvement to what we had last year in part of it believe it or not Joe Joe is evaluating players for the upcoming draft that's a big big part of it because trust me there is a common formula to run in this offense and really make it work Stefon Diggs is the guy that blows the doors off of the defense is for the Minnesota Vikings before we and you look at back at Pat Shurmur when he was with Andy Reid it was the son Jackson now what is a in to read as he has he'll explosive wires see what to add to re kill who blows the doors off so I'm almost guaranteed you I'm almost guaranteeing you were going to find a guy that can blow the doors off of the defense in round one or two of this year's NFL draft that's how you make that all things work do you have a guy that can a workhorse guy who can catch the balls and make it happen that's called sudden but we need one of those guys that is scary says that blows the doors off the defense the evaluation process of what that guy looks like I trust Pat Shurmur more than I do John Elway to
Giants go all-in with GM Dave Gettleman, who 'won't be an issue'
"The giants opted to part ways yesterday with head coach Pat Shurmur after two seasons and a nine twenty three record team though announced the GM Dave Gettleman will return for twenty twenty and also spearhead the search for new head coach here as gettleman earlier New York today before we go any further. I just wanted to be clear. Pat Shurmur as fine. A man as I've ever worked with there are many reasons whether New York football giants who've been the current state and I take my share of cup building. John said yesterday I have had Mrs however given where we started in December seventeen. We've made progress in many areas on an off the field. We're encouraged by and see as a sound foundation for the team to come. Look there have been Mrs. There've been some some hits. There would be those that argue. They have quarterback running the pieces in place rob making it. I would think desirable situation for a lot of head coaching candidates. Yeah I mean if you look at what they have there. You have a franchise quarterback who's very young so if you're offensive minded coach maybe you you'd take that as a positive. Look I have a very one of the top running running backs in the NFL right now. Very Explosive Young Guy. That's going to be on the team for a while. And you look at your quarterback I think the the hard part would be the GM staying so maybe he would have more influence on personnel decisions so that could be an issue but as far as just players their offense they have the keys. That are there for winning. But defensively they're going to have to rebuild on defense. I'm sorry Dan. The point was made yesterday that while they announce it ghetto ones returning and could be in a tough spot if there are potential candidates out there and talked about this that want more of a say you know. There's a new age here. Where head coaches make a lot of the decisions and now they're kind of backed into a corner feel like that's the case around the League Eh? You know whenever you're talking about the coaching hiring process. And you know let's say we're discussing the giants situation in your talking with other perhaps candidates or other head coaches from other teams teams about what's going on. They'll always say did he get hope. Is he getting full. Control getting power. It's always the first question people ask. Because that's what they want because we've seen what happens when a head coach. She doesn't feel like he's the one that can make the decisions and it becomes frustrating and it usually doesn't work out. I feel like the team that allow their coach to say and work in tandem with the GM GM those are the ones that usually are successful or the giants head. Coaching search has begun. They've made inquiries around the league will continue to watch

Shannon I know the ravens are gonna be playing Robert Griffin the third and I know the ravens have not the place for their locked in is the number one seed your team was that the right city I mean in my comments done a fantastic job considering the injuries a quarterback Mike Tomlin has gotten the most out of that defense state puede form I respect that the Steelers don't look to be a playoff team they don't have an elf on offense what I'd say is a casual fan to be honest with you that I want to see him come playoff time I for one do not what was the last part I'm really sorry that's okay I was breaking up no big deal basically the idea that your team does not have enough offensively that would make me as a casual NFL fan the world about seeing the Steelers in the playoffs like if you're gonna ask me right now IT who would have a better chance of being competitive in a playoff game this year the Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans what would your answer be Tennessee Titans hands down no questions asked I mean think about it Tennessee has gotten quality solid what about clay and Ryan Tannehill well it's a great quarterback planets and nobody's done pretty well he has revitalised his career can we be in their changes that offense Tennessee showed you last week against New Orleans even though the New Orleans Saints our for my money the best team in the essay I don't know what is a good I don't Seattle's dangers will sing the Packers in dangerous to for pound pal wise I think the war ones even though they may have to play two games on the road come January I think how was it a basic they took on Tennessee Tennessee did not have their best weapon on offense there can they hung in data fourteen the only that was a backing for fourth quarter they've already beaten the Kansas City Chiefs this year you put Kansas city and Pittsburgh a playoff game that is going to be a rock that is gonna be an embarrassment case is gonna kill because this feels just cannot keep up on offense no matter how good they may be on the fence they can't keep up on offense and I know if you guys so this earlier today Ben Roethlisberger made it pretty clear he's coming back for the twenty twenty season and the quarterback class of two thousand four it's got a lot of attention we have witnessed the end of the line manning and his tenure with the I. chassis is not gonna be back in next year I'm sorry he's not gonna be point in the week I think there are serious questions about the future of Philip rivers soon whether or not Philip rivers is going to be a guy that is starting next year for the Chargers are there I say plan somewhere else Ben is like that last man standing if you go back to the beginning of the year one he went down with that injury allot of people wondered is that the end of all this bird with the Steelers well the difference between the giants in the still is is this the giants drafted a quarterback in the first round he has shown you enough to believe that yeah he could play and that their essays got a chance to be pretty darn good the Steelers gave an opportunity to Mason road off they said your second round pick when a tray for Michael Fitzpatrick we're gonna give you every last opportunity to show that you can be cell and it's also initially he's not wrong with it Missouri office sad for too many suspect under achieving mediocre type performances if on the Steelers you Obama said is I'm trying to win twenty twenty I got a top notch defense I'm gonna get another weapon around Ben Roethlisberger and I'm a give it one last go and I'm gonna draft by quarterback with its next year or the following year Mayes ward off is clearly not back at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six foot said the Brooklyn Gary's

Eli Manning returns as NY Giants' starting quarterback
"If you look last season Eli complete sixty. Three percent of his passes in the two games against Philli. Five hundred seventy passing yards in. It initially looked like he was going to have all his weapons tonight. But Evan Ingram. I guess was scratched Saturday afternoon. Shurmur said he thought he would play on Friday. So that is a big loss expecting Evan Ingram to go but now he's out and he was a went back looked at both meetings last season the first go round the giants outgained Philly by point eight yards per play. The Second Meeting New York goes into Philly puts up over. Four hundred yards of offense outgained the eagles by one point four yards per play. So I can tell you when this game reached ten we did see a by on Eli in the giants it was a value bet Nothing huge coach to quickly go over this. Because I don't know how much time we want to spend. I think if you're looking at the giants it's not a lot paying. The answer is not a lot like as I'm talking hogging motivating the speed at. There's two things that are that are somewhat relevant. Here right in the first is Eli against the Eagles Defensive Line in the pressure that can be created their right. Allies always hated pressure. We kind of made that joke years ago. He looks like a fish out of water. When pressures on and you gotTA drops the game the ground and got him squiggle we've seen him duck out of throws over the years right? A lot of his mistakes. Come when guys are barreling down on this season and it's only two game sample size. But there's a reason he was replaced it's because he has a passer rating of fifteen when he's under pressure and the eagles are top. Ten in pressuring. I'm not sure how Mike remers at right. Tackle is going to be able to handle Brandon Graham the night and if you read. The tea leaves their Brandon Grams Hoping for transactions at seven and a half now there's a couple bonuses and escalators that he would like to achieve so so get thirteen tonight. That's going to be one of the match ups to watch right pressure on. Eli Specifically Brandon. Graham against Mike remers at right tackle. I guess the second question. B Saquon against the Eagles defense. It's probably going to be tough sledding right. The giants online doesn't create a lot of space Four saquon in the ground game. You look. They're twenty six and then justed line yards on the other side. You have an eagles defense. That's eighth and defensive. Rush efficiency seventh in rushing success rate. You would think the goal for Phillies to shutdown saquon Maki lie beat them internally. I can tell you that gym shorts and the Eagles defense or embarrassed last week at Miami. They've said as much the unit thought they were turning a corner. They're becoming the strength of the team. Last week's performance kind of came out of nowhere. I would expect them to rebound a little bit here On that side of the ball
Giants QB Jones has ankle sprain, Manning likely to start
"Week it appears likely now that Eli manning will get the start for the giants in next week's Monday Night Football game against the Philadelphia Eagles rookie starter Daniel Jones is dealing with a moderate high ankle sprain suffered during the loss to the Packers seems he won't be able to go in Philly on Monday night coach Pat Shurmur not worried about you why being rusty I anticipate that he's going to be ready to play manning a two time Super Bowl MVP with arguably a hall of fame

New York Jets head coach Adam Gase responds to support
"Adam Gates in his first season as head head. Coach of the New York jets his record today to end seven nevertheless interesting time for a vote of confidence jet CEO. Christopher Johnston said yesterday Ah Adam gays will return for the two thousand twenty season here is the jets CEO. I want to ensure you there would be no changes changes in coaches Adam. How's the trust of this team as the trust Sam? Joe's trust he has my trust. He's a good man. He's a good coach. There is a lot of work to. There's a great deal of to everyone understands And we're just getting started. I feel really good good Memphis team moving forward anytime you get support from ownership the way that the staff Scott supported. The old has gone way. Obviously we wanted We got a lot of games are jobs improve this team and go out and try to win games every week. And he's with us through every step within our communication with him so he kind of knows what we've been trying to do how we're we're trying to fix things that are that are wrong so no to get his support for him to Kinda see what we're trying to do. It's that's an important step fluish. Well that was Adam Gatien course responding to the SAGA lineup. Was He trying to avoid eye. Contact Tech High. We're out here. Do you find that the timing at all interesting or Steve. Young made the point. Yesterday Robert was a good time to do it. So people stop asking the question. I mean it is a good time. Just say. Hey He's going to be here next year but look he's been there one year having hasn't been a great year for him but you know look overall head coaching record. He's about forty a two percent. When winning percentage he wins about forty two percent of the time? So you know. It doesn't look so great for him moving forward but look he's got the support Ownership they're going to give him one more year and I can guarantee that next year if they're in the same position that they're not going to be so lenient on giving him another year. So Oh you look at what. NFL coaches are nowadays. They have guaranteed contracts. I highly doubt they WanNa give him a nice contract and then just release him halfway through his I well it gets to be an expensive decision. Yeah and that's a really great point because ownership obviously is invested in their pick. They want their pick to look good exam. You know you don't WanNa WanNa give up on what you decided so quickly although that has happened to certain coaches inside right around the league. But you can't forget that even even when Todd Bowles was there that the jets were ten and six in their first season and it was really bad. Blow to this team to the supper loss against the Miami Dolphins and just some of the adversity city that they've gone through since Particularly when there's been a lot of expectations with Sam darnold presidents on that team. Well Yeah. He was brought in large part to work with a young quarterback to develop SAM. Darnold help him take the next step. What's interesting is that they share the same stadium with the giants are struggling as well? Now in this case Pat Shurmur is in his second year as a head coach. But look they're coming off the bye. They've lost six straight. What's the word around his future? Well Adam gays was asked recently just how secure he is in his job in one of the ways in which which he retorted. What's to say I'm built for this? Just projecting confidence which you would expect the head coach to do. But I would be remiss to mention that some of the reporters in New York noted that was kind of the same something that Ben mcadoo said three weeks before the giants got rid of him and and clearly this is not the adversity or excuse me what they were looking to results wise to be having right now coming off of in two years of What they endured under Ben mcadoo but the reality is promising as Daniel Jones has looked particularly when he's throwing the ball With with the return of Saquon this is not what they were looking for. They're still suffering losses even with saquon on the field. I mean he has not had over sixty five rushing yards in the last three times he played. Hey only had two one hundred rushing yard games. That was in the first two weeks Daniel Jones continues to have issues with the interceptions. Fumbles and things of what have you and it has has. It was altered in wins. And you can't neglect the fact that this is in New York and teams with that media pressure there as well. It won't stop. It's hard to perform with a rookie quarterback though in this in this league it's not they had veteran it didn't it didn't work out. He still there by the way. He's still there. But look in this league. It's hard for a young quarterback to come in and be successful and I just think that we're witnessing growing pains of a young quarterback trying to figure his way Out through a hard schedule last year at this time he was done you know now. He's about halfway through so I mean it's it's a lot more difficult. I agree with you. Rob The only issue of course with the New York giants dances. They've had a lot of these same problems whether it was a long-term veteran quarterback or a yet stroup Such a great point. And so then you start to have to ask other kinds of questions
Stefon Diggs on trade rumors: “There's truth to all rumors”
"But we will start in Minnesota we we stefan digs and his current situation the vikings white out missed practice for undisclosed reasons yesterday and it led to speculation about his future with the Vikings today today dig said he has not requested a trade but did admit there is true to all the reverse. He said that he's unsure. His agent has talked to the Vikings and what has transpired can't sit up here like everything is everything is okay his obviously not but but I can't say at this point it just trying to work. Do I feel like there's no matter how you sit up. I won't be saved speaking on that off off. Everybody's known to be rethinking the next one that team guy always predicting but for myself. I never made it just about me. I've never been that kind of so my resume persona kind of speaks for itself. I've never been to got to kind of be off. Be like me me me and wanting to have success. I WANNA have team. Success is always what I've been pushing them always without push so my language was stated saying whether I'm giving many opportunities not not not a lot. Have you asked for trade if you haven't communicated anything more so the conversation has been about teen and China had success food ah I haven't spoke to them you gotTa talk to play Sunday. hopefully then you play. I like football. I want to be part of I want to the apart play football on Sundays on CBS practice today you anticipate house and I feel a little bit better as to Yeah Courtney Cronin joins us now from Minnesota. She was there when dig spoke and Courtney. You heard him say. There's there's truth to all those rumors. What's your take a what exactly he met. Wendy he kept repeating that phrase multiple times throughout his media the reliability this morning and I think that that's him not completely closing the door that we're all he did say when I asked him straight out dicky requested trade you want lots traded and he said I had not communicated that and then obviously you have to follow up about his agent. You didn't fully close the door saying that no. I wanted to be your completely like that. Is there some uproot that there might be some validity what we've been hearing me Hainan seeing that this has been something that's been brewing probably for a little bit of time now so. I think what you were. Each phrase wants to continue to say it while he did say walk this year and he's been here for five years. He loves everything about teammates. I think he's questioned what you have to bring his question about whether he's feel value. He does have a role in the offense but it is minutes role than it was US last year and obviously you've been obsolete. I come in the steam because that kind of brings things to a head to where we're at right now. Wondering are we've seen the end of the era. Is this the beginning of something that we should be more concerned with or just going to blow over eventually because feel there's fire. I'm Greg it courtney. Thank you yeah I think in this case. It's fair to say there is some fire that smokes coming from Joe Joe. I'll ask you first of all about attentional trade market for digs if he were to move on well. I spoke to a team last night that I know would specifically definitely be interested in step on just because they expressly told me that and then last night I think an inquiry was made in they came back and said that they were told that Stefan was not going to be on the market and I see we're hearing during that today in terms of other people following up on the reporting what we do know about stuff on digs at here's a career worst three catches per game and five targets per game and and even though he's coming off a career-best production with over a thousand receiving yards and nine touchdowns his production in the two years prior to this season. It's still been under Adam Adam feeling and you know he's working with the new offensive coordinator and Kevin Stefanski and prior to that obviously was Pat Shurmur. WHO's the head coach of the giant so I think talk. You're looking at a receiver who feels like he can do more. You might even feel like he's the best receiver on the team and he's right. He is not a Mimi Guy in terms terms of how he portrays himself publicly. I've covered him a lot of times. I was there for the Minnesota miracle of so many of his games and by comparison you would definitely not put him out there but off in that sense but just listening to his words and the fact that he did leave the door open with certain things that he said he is letting you know that he is frustrated in that also think that that it fits within the era of athletes right now this season and last season being more vocal about their situations taking more control of where they feel like they can best flourish and I'm getting the hint although I have not talked to him directly or his agent that he's trying to let people know that he feels like everything is not completely kosher dill. It's funny you say that Joe Joe and I think Steve Young. You made the point two weeks ago with the genie sort of being out of the bottle I this is another example of a player. I think trying to sort take some control of a situation a situation that from his perspective is not working the way he'd like it to work yeah. I think it's a direct reflection on the quarterback play that that's been in Minnesota. Obviously his diminished role isn't because of injury or lack of talent. It's because the quarterback isn't getting everybody the ball right. Now I think last ask year when you see how everyone was involved in Adam dealing was getting the football step on digs with everyone was happy. Everyone was performing. Everyone was getting the ball. There were schematically. There were in situations where both of these guys were making big plays and that's what you're used to seeing from the Vikings and I think this year those players just aren't there and there's plays aren't there for those plays aren't necessarily there for Stefan digs for any of those past catches right now because of the quarterback play and I don't know if that's schematics. I don't know if that's simply the quarterback but I think he's unhappy with how he's being utilized and he's taking things into his own hands and to his credit. I've known for some time as well. He's never ever been me guy. He's never been so. This isn't necessarily about putting himself before the team I think at some point he has to look at his career and where he wants to go trajectory wise and make a decision and listening to talk. You almost felt like he had a little bit of emotion coming out when saying I'm a team guy and I'm not a me guy and I'm just trying to put the team. I listen as a football player. I know you can you've experienced this. We only have a certain amount of years and we only have a certain amount of time that we can go out there and play the game so you don't WanNa feel like that. You're wasting a season and I think that's why a lot of guys once they realize look. There's no chance for us to get to the playoffs this year. There's no chance that we're GONNA win in this division this year and teams on the flip side of that. I understand okay yeah. This season is pretty much over so let's try and get some value in some of these guys that are good football players and that's why we're seeing that more this year than maybe in years past. I thought the most interesting thing that he said Real quick when you're asking me if he was going to practice US I don't know I hope so. That's that was the less you know that he has expressed something to the team and he's maybe worried about how they reacted to. How that's what I'm thinking yeah I mean he he clearly was not one hundred percent sure you're next and Steve Young joins US now Steve. We have talked about this before given our conversations and I'm GONNA assume zoom. This doesn't surprise you that we're seeing another example of someone stepping up and saying this isn't working for me no players who are going to continue to demand what's going to be interesting. Is there is is there going to be a market and I think the Jalen Ramsey and if this situation does go forward and these guys are able to get to new teams I I think the ice will break because there are a number I mean everybody in the League has had moments star player now this star players that can do this because they're they're not. GonNa risk career other. You know non star players are not going to risk their careers to demand a trade this cut and so the star players going to say. I know there's a better place for me. I know there's a quarterback it'll throw me the ball and others office coordinator that will take care of me and that's going to continue to grow and I think this is a this is really the really important time Wendy right now awesome because of Jalen Ramsey doesn't get moved and digs does not get moved and the kind of kind of chill this whole thing and can stop it then this market will not not be kind of a burgeoning market but if they start to be able to be moved then everyone the legal realize I can make my way out of here and I wanna be somebody somewhere else and to the to the point just I it was victor. Rodman raw made it but the average career is three point two years in the NFL players are very aware of it. If I'm going to be great I'm going to be great right now. Well there's no question is a pivotal point in the league. We'll see digs by the way signed a five-year seventy two million dollars extension last year the thirteenth highest paid receiver currently in the

I did try watching that travel show about like halfway through the second episode. I was like, wait. This is really all about like the guy who's just like packing the bags for the playoffs. They spent twenty minutes on how complicated that is of like, well, you got to move the bags up to this area. But then it's really tough. Like if it's a night game. You can't get out of the flight that early. I was like this Bori. This is can't watch the correct me if I'm wrong marker. I think you shut down all five options. You'll be sitting out hard knocks this year. But I agree with you. The giants have I would I would I would have put the raiders too. And the giants one off of that list. So I totally agree. Yep. I would I this. These are not one of the five teams I would pick. If I could pick anyone at all. But I can warm up to I think they could go off the board don't have to. It's it's certainly possible that that the Jag a team like the Jags volunteers or or they or some other team that would be the Jags volunteer just a matter if the phone is picked up, and it has been for about five years who who else could use it like what's an owner that would like want it the chargers, I think would want it. I'm not sure if hard knocks totally do it. But I feel like the charge to see the chiefs because it'd be a good one. It would be great west because of the ongoing headlock watch with the New York Jets people of put together that this would be a good year for the jets to return to Minnie's meta. Minnie's meta reports the jets are not interested at this time, which I'm disappointed about. But I get it is becoming a trend because of these rules that you just are picking kind of down and out teams. It would be great to pick a team. That's at the top or close to. I'm the had a good team on the show. The cowboys. We're still at we're pretty good. There was one anymore. Wasn't there? One very recent year. It was a team kind of like trying to get over ghetto jets. Viking. Now the that's coming off a title game. How to me the saints in amazing to pick going into this year, especially we'll really interesting. I mean, can you imagine he would probably be there? Probably a teleprompter around him at all times. What about the bucks who? I was thinking of just because people thought they were going to be good, but they weren't coming out or not. And I'd like the eagles. Eagles are good choice.

You guys is that the reason why was Adam gays over Mike McCarthy and Adam gates interview was just better. Or was it a control thing where Mike McCarthy said I want to be here. Clearly, I'm the best candidate with the best resume because no one else you're going to hire is going to have a Super Bowl on that resume look at my record. And I want this this and this before we even have another conversation. So which one of those two things drove them away. Mccarthy to gates. I'm just that's a curiosity that I have I think that Adam gates just blew everybody's doors off. That's what I believe I believe that he came in the energizer bunny. Had all the answers new the jets obviously intimately because applying them over the last three years having a five one record against the jets being a quarterback whisperer, you know, three years ago, I told you if the jets would have hired Adam gates, everybody would have been through the through the roof to this is awesome. Wasn't the dolphins wasn't a team in the division perceived failure within the division. If this Adam gates said come from an NFC team. Let's say I don't know the Arizona Cardinals. Right. Would people be as against it? I just think that they the up close like Adam gates failed with a dolphin just hired the guy. Did he really foul? I mean say perception is that I understand that. I'm trying to I'm trying to undo that that perception it's easy to look at a record and say guys failed. I mean, I hope that you don't want. Pat Shurmur was at the Cleveland Browns, and he failed that he's gonna learn a lot from that. And when he comes and takes over the giants. It will be a learning curve that will be very small because he's been through it before. And he's also been a successful coordinator. So he didn't have the greatest first year. But I think he's in the midst of changing things there and hopefully next year works so here, the new coaches that we have we have Mickey Callaway as new manager last year. We have David Quinn. The New York Giants have berry trots Rangers. We have buried trots. Of course, if the Pat Shurmur the giants David Fidel for the Knicks. Yup. And now we have Adam gates, and the thing to me is that like geese invis-, they'll a pretty pretty I dunno parallel a little bit where Fidel got into a little bit of heat, Memphis. But he was also a part of championship teams in Miami. And seems to be highly regarded around the league in the NBA everybody, you talk to from Steve Kerr Spoelstra to everybody else thinks the guy is awesome. And what a great hire the next had. Now the next got to work on their roster. And they gotta get better players in here. And hopefully Fidel. We'll be a part of that moving forward. I could say the same thing about Adam gays, Adam gays, okay, prickly personality had issues with ownership or maybe some players down to Miami. That maybe that's why he was fired. Well, he's the same as fishtail. Take the same kind of resumes. Been a part of Super Bowl was an offensive coordinator worked with some great quarterbacks. Got the I'll give you another one of the best of Tim tebow. Get the best out of Jay Cutler got the best out of Ryan tannehill endorsement from one of the most popular players, but physio got the endorsement from LeBron exactly and gays. This is a very similar parallel. Plus, they're both young. They're hip the guys they're hip at and by the way, as I understand it. There were some guys that didn't like Adam gates down in Miami. But there are also a lot of guys that did like Adam guys don't like Bill Belichick to. That's exactly. Right. So at the end of the day. You know, I wouldn't go jumping off of you know, you have my season tickets and quit and all that stuff. I'd give it a chance for God's sake. How you're ten years older als on the phone screening a phone call. You are ten years older than the new jets had that I don't care for the older guy the guy because you know, you're from the old school like that guy. The Broncos hired old fella Vic Fangio that's a lot like the Mike Zimmer. Hiring in Minnesota, a longtime assistant who had great great success on the defensive side of the ball. And the reason that John Elway hired him is because they play in the same division with ho. What I was looking at. David. Raiders so higher defensive coach at least get that side of the ball. Right. So you when you go against those offenses, you'll have something to go for and then convince your buddy Gary kubiak, the head coach of your team that won Super Bowl fifty to come out of the personnel department and run your offense. How many head coaches in New York is Al older than most of them? It's Fidel is right. It's calloway. Ace what about Shurmur? Well, trots is a new one in in. He's older. Right. So the islanders want for exchange. And trod, right. Quainton hines. He's older. Then. Right. Yup. Older guy who still cool Atkinson and physical. He's older than Atkinson in his late forties. Yes. Atkins. Kenny Atkinson, I believe yes. He's not fifty middle aged guys who think they're still young Micky Calloway's only around forty ish Atkinson's fifty one. Oh is he really is fifty one? Okay. Yeah. But there was another one though, he was a very successful assistant and everybody loves his coaching, techniques and everything else. So then that's knew that they had to rebuild their roster and give him a chance to hang on. And they're starting to see some success now. Right. Yes. Starting to see success. Absolute Mike staying over always house didn't work out. Yeah. I know. It's a big problem told him he clogged up the crapper. I'll tell you what the Steelers though. Yeah. No. I did I did tweet that out of the probably clogged toilet and someone responded orey left. The K Cup in John hates then. Traumatic that was a bad idea to stay in the house. I told you that would be a problem Vic Fangio didn't stay in the house. He was coaching. Prepare for the interview didn't go to Elway's house got the job checks in there. Barton and taken all the fruit snacks. And then all of a sudden have a job fruits that should have done. It. Wait, all the fruit. Snacks Mike come on. I said Mikasa CASA, but you really took it to another level. Jerry recco. The voice of rutger's basketball world beaters. Take it down. Ohio State last night. Sixteenth ranked Ohio State. That's pretty cool, Jerry what he got brought to you boil that. And we're brought to you by town fair tire. Nobody beats town fair tire. Nobody and yeah, Adam gates will be the head coach of the jets. Now, maybe surprise to some not so much to others. Now, we talked a lot about the podcast yesterday. Because Allen I a podcast that a lot of people like listen to it often. And you might learn something had you're listening to us yesterday imminent, Mike McCarthy signing imminent, I do think. It's Joe screaming about them getting it done and they're not getting done yet. Yeah. I think it's imminent cherry. I think there's a chance that by the time we do the up program tomorrow. Done deal. I think they're going to hire Adam gates, really. So there you go. Look at that. We had it sounds like listen to me. That's yeah. Sounds like gesture. Yes. We're. Yourself on the back. I don't want to say I told you celebrity does what I just told yourself pretty good, Jerry liberty. Pretty good is the how jets head coach Bill Parcells to have previous head coaching experience that they've hired reports. Say Peyton Manning did call Christopher Johnson as you guys have talked about to endorse him as a candidate the Browns promoting Freddie kitchens to head coach and the Broncos hiring Vic Fangio as their next head coach elsewhere from the NFL you've got the colts in Kansas City, Saturday Cowboys in LA against the Rams Saturday night Sunday chargers and patriots Foxborough. Here was Bill Belichick. He was asked about coaching Philip rivers back in the day. One time time.
