"Yes, well, come in. Good afternoon. Thank you for listening. It's mark Blazer, along with Josh C. Season one over there behind the glass. How's everything going, man? I know that that was probably a dumb question. You being his diehard of a browns fan as you are, But, you know, I was just looking on socials, and I saw that. All of the comments and their Browns fans going. Are you kidding? We're being dealt this. This is just a culmination of so many years of being a Brownsville we file 18 years later we get into the playoffs and then look what happens. We're not allowed to have nice things as browns fans. We, the Lord, give us in the Lord. Take it away. And this time with the Lord must be Cove it because Head coach. Kevin's to fancies got Cove it, He will not be there. He's fine. He's perfectly fine, absolutely no symptoms. Are Pro Bowl left guard, one of the best in the game. Joel. But Tonio Offensive line. Very important special going against that Pittsburgh defense. He's out. I'm just waiting on the shoe to drop and tell me Baker's got it. Oh, God, don't do that man. Know at this point, I am NFL has no plans to cancel the game unless they say there are further outbreaks within the team. In which case the NFL has an option to delay the Super Bowl up to four weeks. So no kidding. The way this is going this is I had no idea. This is real. Yeah, they could be marked in March. The end of a first of March. They Yeah. They have a four week window there where they can move around the game. Okay. I guess it makes sense. And let me tell you something. If this was Kansas City, if this was green Bay Oh, you got it. They would delay the game. They push it back a week. So if it was Tampa Bay with Tom Brady, they would absolutely like Super Bowls being held in June this year, so we'll see how this goes, but it is the most brown's thing ever to have happened. You know what I think? If you ask the Steelers now, look, they're competitors. All of them are competitors. I think they'd rather have a set full four. I think you are correct, man. I'm serious like they're like, No, we need to play it again. I don't think they would do that. I really don't. And quite frankly, if you were on that team if you're on the Steelers squad, and you are caught saying that, you know Nope. They gotta play hurt, You know, blah, blah, blah. I think that that person's loses a lot of legitimacy. There's no question. I think it's something that we do want you full strength. But the biggest the stupidest part of this whole thing. Josh for me is Kevin's to fan ski. If he is Cove it and you you even mentioned if he doesn't have any symptoms. Why can't he be off site? You know, doing the coaching Forget about that. Even if he has symptoms. I get not being on site, whatever they sue, contagious to be around people, whatever. But he should be able to who came up with the rule that if you're out because of covert protocol that you can't be part of the coaching That goes on. That's the stupidest thing ever. He can be involved in game planning with them this week, and that just during the get the three hours or whatever I would say that Stupid If I had my druthers, why Kant's to fancy get his own private box in the stadium have EEG alive vantage view up there and radio in the play calls because that's what he's done all year. He's been the play caller. And calling the plays and help the other coaches. You don't have all the sudden you're asking. These is Mike Priefer, our special teams coach. Great guy been in league forever. 20 years almost He's been a special teams coach for 15 of those years. He's going to be the acting head coach Alex Van Pelt, who was our assistant offensive coordinator slash Quarterback coach. He's going to be calling the plays for the first time all year. You're throwing these guys into positions I have been and then old, by the way, they have to juggle things like time management, when or when not to throw the challenge flag all these different things that he has handled all year. Now he's gotta hand them off in the biggest game the Browns have had in 20 years. It's what happens got punch. So what happens if they just go ahead and kind of do it anyway? On the down low? Yeah. I mean, there would be a footprint. You know, there would be a Bella checking the Patriots could get away with it. Why can't we get way with it? Well, and you know what? In addition to why can't we get away with it? It's a dumb rule. It's a stupid rule. Why can't he coach? Just because he's out for that? It doesn't make sense. It really doesn't. I hope somehow some way, man this gets figured out. And you know what? I wouldn't be upset if we had to. Wait. I really wouldn't because I didn't want to watch the damn thing at 8 15. Anyway, on Saturday night, I'm tired of football by 8 15 not really tired of it, but I don't want to have to. I watch it all day on Sunday and by eight o'clock I wanna have the luxury of maybe tuning out or maybe kind of half watching it. Well, I got to be fully engaged. It's an entire day of football. Yeah, not who are not to mention. It's like you know, you're gonna be up 2.5 3 hours past your normal bedtime. Yeah, I was gonna have to DVR it. You're right, man. No, I was gonna watch it. And then we have to deal with the fact that you know, we gotta you know, Pucker up and hope. Justin Fields ribs Hold up Monday night Like I've got enough on my plate. Alright, like I didn't need this crazy. Hey, Josh, Did you hear there's a what is it is it's like a rough run away or running water in Georgia, the the which the run Run the AARP. Oh, the run past. No, no. The runoff. The runoff is happening in Georgia. Oh, man. Here we go with Kelly La Flor. She's the youngest. I think she can probably outrun Thea. Other three I like that. You're probably right. Hey, you know, there's so many thoughts that come to mind when I'm watching this. Are you feeling the same sinking feeling? When you're hearing these before moons talk about? Well, this is record setting voting going on in Georgia this morning yesterday. They're talking about this record set. Well, the this polling has the Democrats ahead by too close to call right now, and all of the three million people have already cast their votes leading up to the runoff. You know, And now they're saying we're not going to get the results tonight. What is this? Why does this If there's so many of the votes are already cast early?.

"So I don't know if I once knew this and forgot about it. Or if I never knew this about Mike Priefer, the special teams coach of the Cleveland Browns. I'm sure we must have talked about this five years ago. But I don't remember it at all. In a team meeting. Special teams coach for the Vikings, who is now the special team coach for the Browns, who is now the head coach for this Sunday's playoff matchup against the Steelers because of co vid He allegedly. According to a Vikings player, Chris Clue, we scale you know you eat. Said in a team meeting. We should round up all the gays, send them to an island and then nuke it until it glows. That's pretty Extreme. Yeah. Yeah, that's pretty extreme. I'm looking this guy up now. So here I found an article that says ex Vikings punter Chris Clue. We believe supporting same sex marriage cost him his spot in the NFL. So his support of same sex marriage is what kind of drove him out. That's that's what he says. Yeah. This is in. Wow, This is this is recently so since A couple of former NFL players have come out. You know, we've we've obviously Look, there have been gay players in the NFL forever. They just haven't been comfortable being themselves and coming out while they're playing because of attitudes expressed Bye. This Mike Priefer. And his ilk. And now this dude is set to be the head coach. He was suspended by the way by the Vikings for three games in 2014, and he was made to participate in sensitivity training. Does that sensitivity training? Does that ever work? Is that a thing? Um, I don't know. I mean to me. It's just It's something that big corporations and other people throw out onto people. So that taking having excuse to keep them around. Yeah, we We did diversity workshops at my job with the with the magic because They just wanted to make sure we had a diverse workplace like they didn't do it retroactively. They did it proactively. We've had those here. I mean, we do diversity and inclusion meetings. And I remember we did something in the performance theater where they talked not only about racial and sexual orientation but also ageism and things like that. So I think in 2021 That is probably commonplace for most, You know, Major corporations? Yeah, I remember at the one I did with the magic. They made everyone stand up, They'd write a sentence on the board. And you would have to go over to one side of the room if you agreed with it, and one side if you disagree, Are you sure that wasn't the one here Because that's what we did here too. We did know I'm 100% positive that we did it with the magical so Yeah, Yeah, we did that. We did that here. I didn't know that. But it's funny because I remember that exercise specifically being about ageism. Oh, man, I don't know if I didn't attend that or what? I'm sure I must have I don't remember much about it, except that because the one that I went with the magic, the one that I got into it with the person giving the workshop was It is never okay. To call a woman, a bitch even jokingly. And everyone. Every single employee except for two of us went to the agree side. And it was me and my friend Tremaine who were on the not okay side it like disagree side. Because we said, Look, if we say that joking around to a friend of ours and and like, like, what's the harm like if she's okay with it? Why is it not? Okay? Well, you're was that again. I would say roughly 20. 2009 or so 2010. Maybe most right on the cusp, right? Right. And you know, we had some back and forth to where We try to argue the jokes or jokes and then the diversity lady told us that the term bitch Actually came from Slave days they would call a woman in heat. A bitch. And so, you know, we relented and said Fine. It's never okay then, but something like this. I just I don't know how you get past something like that. This isn't canceled culture, you know? Well, I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm just gonna come out and say, I don't think the NFL has any interest in truly embracing the gay community. I don't think that they have any interest as an entire organization of letting. You know gay players be an overwhelming thing. I don't you know they can. They can make their jerseys and they could put the rainbow colors on stuff and make everybody feel like they're doing something. But I think that the NFL is far far away from being fully accepting of gay people being in the league. Totally agree, So I mean, I think That's why that's why a guy like this can thrive is because it's not like the D League is the hole is doing things to include. You know gay men. It's I mean, that's that's just something that I don't think the league or the players as a whole are interested in. And that's why a guy like this could stick around and some sports or in some other places, a guy says a comment like that. He's gone forever and written and written off the NFL. I just don't think has that same standards when it comes to homophobia. 7 to 75791 or 25. I don't disagree it all. And I think this this very case spells that out to grab a live alone. Who are you? Hey, Drew, it's Mike. How you doing?.

You know, you practice having somebody hold on the kickoff, you know all the little things that could come into play. A T end of the day.

"In our next special guest. Our next special guest is the best special teams. Coach in the National Football League, maybe in the history of the National Football League. Darrin Simmons and his guys stepped up for him big time They really did. And I guess first question, Coach Joe Judge Head coach, which you should be in the National Football League. You should have been the head coach in the National Football League before Judge Joe Judge, But that's my humble opinion. But eight years special teams guy in New England When you knew you were matching up with him and his football team. Did you alter anything or do you just become more detail aren't and nobody's more detail oriented than you. But did you even become more detail oriented about execution? Well, I think that's that's one of the things that we have to hold down, especially when you're playing a team like them. You know the imprint of his time as a special teams coach is all over with the Giants were doing I mean, I could've probably taken in New England scouting report in this change name the Giants of the top right. It would have been the same. So a lot of the lot of the things we talked about a year ago and played New England that the concepts of schemes Um, even the situational things that the dated New England they're going exact the same things. Now it's a giant. So we had We had a decent level of familiarity with concepts and schemes. We just have to really learn more about personnel and who they had. You know who they're playing with. You know, one big thing for us that they brought over NATO Abner, which is kind of his captain and his ring leader with New England, and they brought him to the Giants for them to play, you know, unfortunates them. He got hurt. I think on the opening kickoff didn't play the rest of the game, so that was a big loss for them. No, But like I said, I thought that our guys were really honed in. That was important for us to be important for our guys to play. Well, um, you know, against a former special teams coach is the head coach. It's important for you guys to play wealth them. Brandon Wilson goes 103, but it's never just one person. It takes a team effort. Take us through that plane. What it's like watching it as it unfolds. Well, you know, it's like everything else. It all happened pretty fast. And you know, I think what's what showed up with brand over the course last couple weeks. I think there's some hesitation there in the middle part of the season with them, You know, just not, you know, trust in the block, catching it and hit it like he had been earlier in the season or even like he was last year, but No, there was no hesitation whatsoever that was back to the old brain. And, um, you know that we're growing kind of gonna customers, saying, um, you know, there's there's a lot of guys that that's a very important blocks critical box. A lot of things have to go. Right. Um, you know for you to have a chance to score, but we blocked it up pretty well, um, you know and kick off a term plays all about timing. It's like Lab for you Be like, you know, blocking a zone run on offense. It's it's all about the time and we're the linebacker supposed to be supposed to be in relationship, the center, the guard, tagging the three technique and getting up the line back. It's all about timing, Kickoff return team or kickoff plays about kickoff return plays about the same thing so Blocks timed up. Well, um, you know, like I said, brain and hit it. Hey, really hit hard ran to the tackle of the kicker came in and then you know, obviously with him, he's got enough speed to score. I'm really anybody. So you know, obviously is a very positive play force. It's funny. You say hit it because when I When I When he started to return, I saw him get to the end. I think he split. I'm like, hit it. He split the wedges and I see the next level hit and he hit it again. I'm like, Oh, my goodness this this bad boy is gonna go and s O. He has the opening kickoff he has to tackle. He makes the tackle on the opening kick up. He's your gunner. And then when he gets his first chance after they scored a touchdown on the very next kickoff, he takes to the house You've been around Pro Bowl special teams. Guys here Pro bowler yesterday was certainly a probable performance. Um, you know, in every facet that way, I thought he played extremely fast, not not only on the kickoff return play, but also as a gunner. I mean, he's Hey, somebody that everybody has to try to double. If they don't double me. He's gonna You know, even make the taxi was going to force a fair catch. And, you know, force fair catches a gunner's. This is important to tackle. It's about the same. And you know he played extremely fast yesterday and just about every area. You know he had a He had a bad game play one of his worst games a couple weeks ago against Pittsburgh. It was great to see him, you know, have the fortitude and least a confidence toe, believing himself to bounce back and have the type of game he did yesterday. But, yes, there was certainly a Pro Bowl caliber performance coach. What does his his mind set his mentality kind of the example? He says. What does that mean? That unit? Well, I mean, I think it shows and we've known that for a while. Now, that mean all we do is get me forgive him a scene and with the way that he assaulted, he can trust it and hid it like we're talking about. He's got a chance to score on anybody at any time, and that's certainly gives our group a great deal of confidence in the hope is that every time is of the opponent kicks off. They're going to kick it to us, at least give us a chance to return it. You know, there's obviously some teams that their kicker can take that away. And I think maybe we timed it up about right with the Giants. You know their kicker just come off a covert list. And you know, hadn't really been able to kick with the team for almost a week. And a half of my week was last week, so he really had a chance to kick them. So I think we caught them. Just about right. Where you know was normally a very high percentage touchback guy. Very strong legs this time. Carolina and, you know, maybe they're a little afraid that, um you know if he starts to swing away and tries to hit touchbacks, and maybe something bad would happen. He pulled our pull a hamstring or what have you so anyway? Um, you know, it gives our guy's a great deal of confidence to know that with it Any time bringing gets a scene that you get the chance to score The best time to execute a fake is when it's least expected 4th and 6th at your own 20 yard line, you execute the fake punt and pick up seven yards and move the chains. Gutsy call..

A Conversation between Tara Brach and Elizabeth Lesser
"Elizabeth. We are so delighted to have you with us. Thank you thank you thanks. It's a pleasure thank you. Hello everybody from all over the place. It's lovely to be with you. Yes i wanna jump right in to do your new book because i fall. We get grabbed by the tidal. Cassandra speaks can you just have to come up with that title. Who is cassandra. Let's just start writing with that. Well i've always loved mythology and religious texts. You know. I just love reading whether it's the bible or the koran or the buddhist texts or the hindu texts. I've just always just because humans learn through stories. that's how we learn. So i've been fascinated with stories and i didn't take me long to notice even way back in college that wow most of the books we love. Heroes tales the parables the myths they're written untold by men because back in the day. Ps also a lot now. The storytellers were men. And there's nothing wrong. With the stories. Men tell and the values men tell their stories from but a big swath of humanity was left out of the storytelling so when packing Reading reinterpreting everything. From adam and eve to chinese stories to the greek myths and as i was writing and i was writing about one of the greek town. The tale of cassandra we were in the midst of the metoo movement. Now i know that seems maybe like ancient history. Now we've all been through so much but really it was just like a year and a half ago and one night. I was watching television on. I was watching the televised trial of those young girls who had been molested by their doctor. Dr larry nassar and the judge in rare way of dealing with the trial. First of all allowed it to be televised and allowed one hundred twenty five girls to tell their story in front of the cameras with dr nassar sitting there and for years and years thirty years he'd been at it for years and years. These young women most of whom were olympic athletes had told their mothers had told their parents had told their coaches that college coaches the us olympic team coaches. They've told them that this man had been molesting them but no one believed them. And i was reading the story of cassandra. At the time. Cassandra was a princess. She was the most beautiful princess of the king of troy and troy was an ancient city. That was often at war with greece and she was so beautiful in lowering all the men wanted to marry her including the gods apollo. The son of zeus wanted to marry her. Zeus wanted to marry her and apollo offered her a gift. The gift of being clairvoyant. That she could be able to see into the future. She would see what was going to happen to her family. And her countrymen and her world and she wanted that She's very spiritual person she she wanted to be able to see into understand so she accepted the gift but he neglected to say that she would have to have sex with him right away after she got the gift but she didn't want to and he was furious so as the story goes he spat in her mouth in put a curse on her. Cassandra you will be clervoy int- but no one will believe you. And for years. She saw what was coming. She saw the war. She saw the trojan horse. She saw her brother's all dead. She saw her city in ruins and she would say it but no one would believe her. So as i was watching these young women. I thought they are cassandra's. They are telling their truth their experience but this time they're being believed and i thought that's what i want this book to be about changing the way the old story ends so it doesn't end with women not being heard women not being believed so that we had meant to who knows their inner feminine. So that finally. We respect that part of ourselves so deeply. It's really this part. That i was leading in the meditation and we get so much clout in musculature. That are stories begin to matter an actually change what it means to be human
"special teams coach" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW
"And well actually take place between 709 and a p m. But nonetheless on my legs in for Lance, this is sports Talk chip. You look afraid but you're allowed to make fun of the radio station. I'm wiping my hands clean man. You mad at me because I called you chip heart before. That's funny. My name's Moe lances back tomorrow. Luke Fickell shows coming up at 805 excited about that. We've got a good college football. Guess who's going to do a deep dive into the bear cat defense? At 7 35. That's that's good radio, doing a deep dive into a team's defense. You want to be here for that, but first Paul dinner junior covers the Bengals for the athletic. And if you don't subscribe if you don't read, Paul me, not even you call yourself a Bangles fan. And and if you you do, call yourself a Bengals fan. Call yourself a stupid Bangles fan Because Paul makes you smarter. He's writing for the athletic. He's on a podcast that he does, in fact that the latest episode is the borough sewed, or they kind of just do Water Wall. Joe Burrow and speaking of Joe and Paul and the athletic Paul wrote a piece that came out yesterday. Where he and Joe's coaches on the offensive side of the ball and the special teams coach. They go through their favorite Joe Burrow plays from the first half of the season. I have tweeted out a link. You owe it to yourself. You know, you will. Thank me. You owe it to yourself. Read it right now. While Paul and I talk about stuff, how you doing? Doing good, mo. I need you around my house with introductions like that. Really, Just walk. Walk into the room and go. Hey, man, this guy tell you what. He cleaned the kitchen thiss. Dude, He just did a bang up job. It's and span. We're gonna love this guy Go in the kitchen while he and I talk about football. Is that what you want? Yeah, Just just just just let my family know that I'm smart. Like that'd be cool. Like if I could make him smarter and you'll take anything I can get. At this point. I I totally understand And maybe you could be the same for me first when we do this, because we've got both teams dealing with covert issues. Is there any reason to not be confident that this game is going to be played on Sunday? I don't think so. I mean, you know, I guess it's like all these things we wait. See? Professors will come back. But I think we've seen across the league. You know, for a number of weeks where 10 tops up another test pops up there a guy here on that, You know, they just sort of quarantine a movie A couple players will miss. But the games have been kind of going on. Ah, lot of looked a little bit like this. So I think you know, it follows the path that we have seen. It should be okay. But, um, I mentioned the piece you did on Joe Burrow talking with his coach is as they walk through their favorite place of his in the first half of the season. Here is my sincere hope. That you do another one in eight weeks because that could be a blast because if I get the same level of progress from game 90 game 16 that I saw game won the game eight. I can't even think about what I'm gonna be saying about this guy at the end of the season. You're right. I mean, I was kind of really blown away by some of the details just because it's a lot of stuff that you so often coaches in this league. There's like this paranoia of even saying anything that is remotely about what happened in the game, and and there's sort of an opening and I think of Really kind of the coaches wanting people to understand what they're seeing. What actually happened so much that my big takeaway of it wasn't so much of what he's doing and so much that's kind of making in their eyes. His performance pretty special. When you look at it, you're right. Is the details is the backstory of what's happening is a play, blowing up in space and still on the fly, looking off a linebacker and throwing it over his head or Being too Browns players committed to each other and realize they're saying that they know that he's checking the thing that he beat him on the force and for the first game five weeks ago, and in a second and a half later, check to the counter move that And then leave that corner flying towards the sideline like Cuyler, Boys, streaks, open up scene and like that is the kind of stuff I think that has them and everybody in the building. Ah kind of even blown away by what their own already very high expectations were is those kind of details is the recall there, Simmons said he used the term photographic memory. Really, because I've just never seen anything like it. And that showed up over and over and over getting so many of these conversations that his recall his intelligence out there and feel for the game is as big a part if not more. In any of the stuff that you see whether it be you know, after a past here, spitting out of a type of here, it's the other stuff that really kind of been in eyes. What made him special, So that's that's what I was going to bring up next. I know Darrin Simmons is the special teams coach, So he's not hands on working with the quarterback, but he was here. You know Andy Dalton's best attribute it was often, said Wass. What he could do pre snap his his ability to read defenses..

The First American To Play For Barcelona
"Two Weekends Ago Nineteen Year Old Sergio Desk became the first American to play for one of the world's biggest soccer clubs. The new. Number, two for Barcelona Savino desk off the bench here today. Today the FX Palton Oreo on desks rapid rise and why the young star has chosen to play for the US instead of his birth country of Holland. showed him their vision for what he was going to be in the future they believed in him and he hadn't seen anything from Holland until he broke into the first team that I act. So I think there is a sign of Sergio recognizing wind people believe in him in when people give him the support to be successful. From in the athletic, I'm under skelter and I'm Davidson, it's Friday October sixteen, and this is the lead. It felt like something great was happening. There is something about the emotion. For. The past because. that. This isn't a story. View the. It stays with you. So. Paul how would you describe the way that Sergio plays? Well, I would say he's definitely more of the modern fullback that we see in today's game. Is An attacking player first and foremost. DSP little slow to react to. That very quick very good one on one defender, but his strongest traits are pushing forward. With the ball crossings desk. Space he's not afraid to be creative. He's not afraid to try different things. Back so Yeah he he plays with the mindset of attacking player who is looking to create goals. And get a sense of the hype around surging your desk. How good is this dude expected to be? Yeah I mean I think there are a lot of hopes for what he can be you know Barcelona spending twenty, five, million euros to sign him that puts a a heavy amount of expectation on Sergio Desk I mean this is not a taking a flyer on a guy paying five million euros form and hoping he works out and develops know when that kind of money is being spent. The expectation is that you come in and you contribute right away. And in the case of Sergio that means producing assists, it means holding your own in the Champions League and I think there is a lot of belief that he can be that type of player I mean I think there's going to be a huge spotlight on that club this year because it could potentially be Messier's final season at Barcelona, and so the hope that club is that they can win Champions League maybe do something to convince messy to stay and that's what you're walking into. If you're Sergio Desk and Paul, what's your sense of Sergio personality what's he like he comes across as kind of a quiet kid? I believed in myself. So that's like the reason I get focused and I played really well and this you know he. Is Very Smart. He certainly is not afraid to Kinda give his analysis of his teams and where he fits in the and the last two minutes I just made a unbelievable mistake and that's What I learned from it. But. What's interesting is when you talk to other people about him, what's he like kind of away from the media spotlight were you probably get a better idea of his personality? It seems like he is. I guess the best way to put as maybe like an interesting dude, like he you know he kind of goes to the beat of his own drum. He's got a kind of a bright personality and we're starting to see little bits of that I think as he grows comfortable with the spotlight that's on him. Now, we'll you've been digging into Sergio rise to stardom including speaking with some of his former youth coaches in the Netherlands. Tell us a little about the path he's followed. Well, he was signed with his academy from a local club. At. Quite a young age and I think what's interesting is At I xe the expectation when you go to a club like that and you go into an academy like that is immediately, how is he gonNA fit in as a professional and I think there were some concerns about whether or not Sergio had the discipline to succeed. As a professional you saw that topic come up with a number of his youth coaches at I you. Was He going to take things seriously enough. Well, what were some of the things that he was doing that we're raising red flags among some of these youth coaches? Well, they vocalise some of them and they didn't they hinted at others. There's little things like Sergio not showing up to school. Where was his focus and and having to sit down and have talks about professionalism and you can interpret it however many ways you want is showing up the training on time is he going and doing all the individual work that needs to be done mainly they wanted him to understand that you know. Yes, football is fun. Yes. There is the enjoyment part of it right but. If, you're going to make it at a club like I asked at a certain point you have to start treating it like a job as well, and for as much as some coaches were giving him those red flags there were also coaches who were saying, no, this kid has it. He has something and what you what you need to interpret is, yes, his personality might be. A little different. He might not fit perfectly in the box that you want, but he wants to be successful. He wants to get better and those are the coaches that recognize that in him and worked to kind of harness it, and once that happened once there was a little bit of belief behind Sergio Dust that self-motivation has has led him to a really quick sent from. The U Twenty World Cup into access first team, and then a year later into the senior national team for the US and onto Barcelona. So break this down for us. Paul Sergio grew up in the Netherlands. But he's been playing with US national teams. How exactly has that worked? So Sergio comes from a military US military family his father was a soldier who was stationed overseas. As Mother's Dutch and so he was born in Holland and and was raised there and even the Dutch national team he never got an invite to the youth national teams in Holland every time before the less round, the real real influence I didn't make you know and. Then, I was like. And he was discovered by the US soccer on accident, a US youth national team coach Dave Vandenberg, a former player, and he reached out to his club actually about another player. Another American at I ax to check in and he said as as you tend to do in scouting or journalism. Hey are there any other players I should be aware of and to coach that the actually we have another player here with American passport is name, Mr Gino, desk, and then My Dad told me like you also have American best and people saying to my dad so he can also play for the American. So when they brought through genius destined to camp, they were watching very closely not just his soccer ability but how would he mesh with the group and they said it took just one training session to see the quality that Sergio desk had. But what they were really happy with was how quickly he bonded with the Group of players and they felt like he really gained a lot from the group in connecting to his American. Identity I felt home over there a little bit because they I mean in the national team because they helped me all the time and they give me chances. This. That's the main thing I guess I would say also I think it's worth noting that the connection between us soccer at the time general manager now technical director Ernie Stewart and Sergio Desks Ernie Stewart likes or. Has a father who is in the military a Dutch mother grew up in Holland and when the US was trying to finalize Gino desks international recruitment, Ernie Stewart and Gregg Berhalter flew to Holland sat with Sergio and his father had a meal watched her play Champions League and spoke about their vision and I think it probably helped Sergio desk to see somebody who grew up very similar to him very similar background who played in multiple world cups more than one hundred caps for the US national team and Through seeing Ernie Stewart's accomplishments saw what he could accomplish with the US i. felt like my feelings were telling me like. My heart told me US wants the best option for you. It's not like. That I don't like the Netherlands. But yeah. In life you have to make decisions on. It's easy. You know. Also, we should note that that loyalty that, US, national team showed him, and that belief in the positive reinforcement he was getting with the US and being to Seventeen World Cup team u twenty. World Cup team led him to choose the United States senior national team overhaul, and which was recruiting and Windsor Genius talked about that decision. He talked about the fact that he had been a part of the teams plan for a long time. They had showed him their vision for what he was going to be in the future they believed in him and he hadn't seen anything from Holland until he broke into the first team and. So I think. There is again a sign of Sergio recognizing when people believe in him and when people give him the support to be successful.

20 Minutes About A Smart Rowing Machine
"The day we have an interesting guests. Bruce Smith from hydro reuss. Why don't you just introduce yourself little eight? Great to be with you on the show and name is Bruce Smith I'm a Canadian living in America, and and the CEO and founder of a company called Hydro. What's grow? Yeah, hydro is a indoor rowing machine, and it uses some pretty revolutionary resistance mechanism technology to make it quiet, but the coolest thing. Thing about the machine. The part that we love the most about it is that we broadcast not fitness classes, but we actually take the experience of being out on the water rowing, and we have instructors out there. Who talked to you directly live on a beautiful twenty two inch, high definition screen with great speakers, so you actually experienced being out on the water and being part of a rowing crew you know from. From your living room or your bedroom or wherever you machine, so it's like having a penitent Kloss, except it's on a rowing machine that is extremely quiets why it whereas like putting us more broad, you know like almost feeding like you're dancing. Really off focusing on you know creating an immersive experience of being out there rowing exactly so we have trademark this idea of votaw reality and I love Peleton we have A. A time in the office they're they're totally great. It's really fun and it is. You said it's exactly right. It's like being at the club with your friends. You know you're not drinking or smoking, but you're you know you're listening to music or super photogenic people. You know it's fun experience and we love that that's great for us the coolest thing that we could think of doing to take this concept of live. Elo are and create an immersive experience so rather than going to the club every day for your workout, which is great, we can have great music and really really charismatic instructors, but you're actually out on the river, or on the bay, Miami beach or rowing by London, bridge, so, who do you think is it for? Is it like somebody that Audio Patent Than They WanNa? WanNa to mix up the workout as really somebody that is looking for different experience because they don't like going to a club, but they wanna have liberal quietness of actually being outdoors and row. It's for people who are looking for the very best experienced the best workout experience and the best way to connect with their friends, so Peleton has a leaderboard which is great. Great, but you're really competing. You're competing by yourself and you know not that many people have actually wrote out of the water in a boat with other people, but the experience of it is unbelievable. You're right on the water, but most importantly you're moving in complete rhythm with seven other people, Ya, howdy, howdy create that because if I'm Roy like, let's say like on. On, a big rowing team or like even dragon boating like a need to be in sync with everyone right because as soon somebody's out of things not working. That's exactly right. In human beings hardware. They love to do things in synchronicity with other people. It makes you feel better. It's like it's a genuine way of connecting and when you're biking, you know you're. You're like ninety five or one hundred beats per minute, and and really not moving in the same rhythm as as the instructor like you're having a shared experience, but it's not exactly the same rhythm when you're on the rowing machine, you're encouraged. It's actually really easy. You move every part of your body in exactly the same rhythm as the instructor, and so there's some brain. Brain science behind this you know the brain is an aerobic organ like a muscle, you not energy systems like like the rest of your body, and so every time you make a decision in your brain. You're using some energy, and so when you're exercising, you have to keep deciding to exercise and they're really really cool thing about rowing especially when you're rowing crew like. Like, not just on a machine by yourself in a room, but when you're rowing as part of a team, you turn off that decision making process in your brain, because the person that you're following the person in front of you is is making those decisions. You don't have to make them, so you achieve the state of flow much much faster and we know from. From our experience and I know from my experience as a national team coach that has it actually has a profound impact on people. It is the best exercise you can do. It's also US eighty six percent of your body's muscles when you're biking like forty forty five percent of your muscles with you have to use your arms and legs. It's like a full body. And your core and it improves your bone density also, so it really is like. If there was one pill that you could take, that would like. Make you friends and make you healthier. You take that pill. Of course. We feel like we've got that pill. We all would like that, but say so just saw. Listeners can really imagine how the product experience looks like so I'm imagining now you're sitting on a rowing machine and you have like a huge monitor of some sort right, and and you see an instructor like. How do you create that experience off? Somebody actually sitting in front of me. Somebody's sitting behind me and I'm not competing against. Against them, but we actually working together like how you create that certainly question, so this isn't like we didn't just go. Go to the river with some of our friends and get some go prost. We don't talk about our our workouts as we talk about them as episodes and we hired this really really amazing film team, and so we take all the experience that Hollywood and television. Television have created in the United States and we apply that skill in that art to capturing the whole experience of being out on the water, so we have four cameras. We have a team that is mixing and editing that you know. The most important part of this are two things number one is the rhythm, and so you never lose that rhythm and the instructor. Who's WHO's out. Out there with you is encouraging you to be in rhythm with everybody, and it's very very easy to follow like you do it instantly, even people who've never done it before within like two or three strokes there in the right rhythm, and then the other part is that emotional connection and two things contribute a lot to that one is music, so we have an amazing library of. Of Music and the other is making sure that when you're filming, you captured not just the rhythm, and the experience of being outside, and and the you know the environment of being out on the water, but also the eyes of the instructor is are the window to the soul, and it's it sounds trite, but it's. It's unbelievably true like you have to see. People's facing to be able. Able to read what's in there is and it, it's that experience being able to move your whole body in the same rhythm, AC- instructor and also connect with them. Because you feel what they're feeling, you know they're out on the water and they're excited about what they're doing. They're you know they're training for the US national team and they're sharing their passion for sport that they love. Love more than anything else, and it's really it is genuinely inspiring, and we thought just a crazy response from consumers, which is really encouraging, and

Did a powerful coach groom his talented young runner for sex?
"The problem at the heart of today's story an ugly one but it's not particularly unique. A grown man in a position of power allegedly uses that power to groom a young woman. I as a friend and as a partner and finally for a sexual relationship if there's one thing the past few years of these stories should have taught us. It's that this scenario happens absolutely everywhere. But what happens when the story goes public? That varies wildly depending on the world in which it happens in large companies and big industries by now there is a process or at least there should be even in smaller companies. There's usually a structure of some sort in place in the tiny insular world of Canadian long distance running though there's not much of that to speak of and the allegations that landed in a national newspaper almost two weeks ago have exposed just how badly some oversight is needed in these small communities almost two decades ago now a promising young woman met a notable coach and the story went the way these stories sometimes go and nobody talked nothing was done until it hit the papers and now at tiny world of Canadian long distance running has been blown wide open and nobody knows what happens now I'm Jordan Heathrow. This is the big story Michael. Dale is a freelance journalist for this particular investigation. He worked with the globe in Mail. Michael Hi how are you doing? I'm doing well. You performed quite a deep dive on a problem that I don't think a lot of people even knew was on anybody's radar. Why don't you start by telling us who's Meghan Brown certainly Megan Brown? Actually if if you're a fan of track and field and Canada you may remember the name because she was a bright star Ten fifteen years ago. was better apex or career And she started off as a high school genome. She ran very briefly with a club called. Speed River Track and Field Club in wealth and also briefly with the University of wealth before moving on to the University of Toronto. She had some success ultimately she didn't become an Olympian or the next great Canadian distance runner And my investigation in part unearth. Y happened or why it didn't happen in the same vein than on just so we have the two characters upfront. Who is Dave Scott? Thomas Dave Scott. Thomas is or was until very recently arguably the most powerful individual and track and field in Canada. He was a coach at the University of wealth which is a powerhouse program and track and field only rivaled with US schools and he also had a speed river track and Field Club in wealth which had a number of Olympians that ran Ran With him at the club over the years and developed an unimaginable amount of talent there and he was a national team coach so he coached And the two thousand Sixteen Olympics as well so in a relatively small world in this industry in Canada he was one of the bigger names. He was an outsized figure for sure. I mean I one coach said to me. He sort of like a Scotty. Bowman type figure. He's a an empire builder on a lot of different levels But I would argue that within the cloistered world of of Canadian track and field and distance running. He was even much more powerful than that. So let's start by going back to the beginning and tell me how Meghan Brown Matt Dave Scott Thomas. It all started in the fall of two thousand and one when. Megan was a sixteen year old kid and she was very new to running. Suliman wearing a couple of years. Her Mom had died When she was a teenager and she discovered running after her mother's death in part a coping mechanism and she won the junior race at the Ontario Cross country. Championships that the high school championships which is a pretty incredible feat for someone running and Dieskau. Thomas saw her. That meet identified her as the up and coming feed on that she was. I suppose luckily for him. She happened to be a local kid. She was from the farm community outside of wealth area so he in the weeks after her win went to her high school and recruited her there at that time when she is sixteen and he's recruiting her. How big a deal was he. Then would have been like being recruited by Scotty Bowman at that time Not Quite but he was definitely an up and coming force certainly locally it would be a big deal Guelleh was At the university level was developing as a top flight school and his program that was sort of attached to the school. The Speed River Track and Field Club was becoming a known commodity in the running scene and he was attracting some talent but this was at the very beginning the building stages and he's a very charismatic figure. As well he you know. He offered her an opportunity in a situation for her to grow her talent. And obviously it was you know in the community so she and her father who is a a widower. The time trusted Mr Scott Thomas to take care of their daughter. She spoke to you in a lot of depth for this story. What does she say about their relationship? Their working relationship in the early days. I think it was Positive and then it became very intense. Very quickly They develop you mean by intense while the very quickly started spending a lot of time together and time not just in terms of after school when he's coaching around the track but even after that and according to many of the athletes that I spoke with that were present at that time while she was still a high school kid training at speed river they would disappear off in the car they will go for drives And as Megan told me later in our interviews He would take her for tea and they would spend long periods of time talking about a started off talking about running and then it very quickly diverged from that talking about each of their emotional states in his as much as hers and then e. Mail started Phone calls this is at the during the early days of the cell phone right so megan actually had a phone was kind of Sarab tissue going out and you know are up in her room or out on the road talking to Dave Scott Thomas while he was staying late at his office in the evenings. What do we know about what the people around this relationship thought about it? so far you've described stuff that I think would raise people's eyebrows but Perhaps not crossing particular line. The first problem is is that there was an incredible amount of blind trust given a day. Scott Thomas he started the program at the University of wealth it was nothing program by all accounts And he built it from nothing to quite something and later on to an incredible program And because of that he had unilateral power. It wasn't a whole lot of checks and balances going on university and put in place and parents trusted him as well He's sort of report himself to be a family man. He has daughters. He was married guy in his late thirties at the time. So there was a lot of trust built in their students Athletes in the in the club and athletes at the university Told me that they definitely. They started to gossip. They they definitely saw something going on but they're kids. They're they're teenagers. They're eighteen. Nineteen twenty years old others. A lot of jealousy actually Many many athletes told me former athlete told me that they felt a great deal of Chelsea towards Megan because she was occupying all of all of their coaches time. Right but the thing is is that Dave. Thomas gave her that time that attention so it was definitely a two way street. That was going on. Where did that lead in the fall of two thousand two? The speed river team led by Dave. Scott Thomas went in an RV and drove out to Moncton for The National Cross Country Championships. A Megan was the only teenage girl in the group who was a lot of like university students that were going out and you know it was a really fun time for her. She was very excited. This is the first big trip for our She's a pretty naive kid as well and she ended up winning that meet. She won that the national junior title. Which is a huge deal and meant that you'd be going to a world championships the CA- following year and that night after winning title instead of going out with friends her teammates and celebrating She went on a drive with Scott Thomas in that. Rv She alleges and That's when he approached her of with the idea of a relationship he won't. He was kind of probing her for how she felt about him emotionally and sexually as well and shortly after that a sexual relationship again between the two of them and she was seventeen years old. He was thirty eight so the topic. At least of the relationship is broached right after her biggest victory so far and and what should have been the first of of many. What happens the weeks after that according to Meghan Will shortly after that after they come back from the National Championships in Moncton Her and Mr Scott. Thomas actually go for a trip alone in his car. T. FROM WEALTH TO TORONTO. A day trip they went to the the ROM. The Ryland Area Museum Museum and in the exhibit somewhere He kisses her and then later on that evening they drive back to wealth they go to The Arboretum which is large forested area owned by the university where he actually trained as athletes. And that's where they they had Megan's first sexual encounter in her life in his car and She says that she felt it was an ultimatum. that he gave her before they had sex. Which was that either heavy relate sexual relationship with me or You're going to lose everything that we built. Of course she chose the former. I think she realizes now that consent was not possible at that point in her life based on her age based on the the power dynamic that existed between the two of them So from there on in there was a A two year secret sexual relationship That they maintained until she was a Shortly after she joined the University of Wealth As a student athlete. How does that kind of thing happen? And I think this sounds like kind of a stupid question because we now hear about this kind of thing happening often but how does something like that happen? Within a relationship that has so many power dynamics involved and nobody around it does anything. I mean you mentioned. They might not have known about the romantic aspect of the relationship that you mentioned that her teammates were certainly aware. Was anybody else involved with the club or the university aware that this was going on. I mean this is a debate. That's kind of turned the running community in Canada. Too Right now which is Those that were a part of the University of Guel for Speed River Track and Field Club at that time. Either as coaches or athletes.

"special teams coach" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Four here on this Thursday morning we Argentan warmed up his JJ after that challenges Jansky right here all the fat eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six then in order for these higher toward tao from giant sampling number one day get a man's got to do a better job I mean that goes without saying boat he wore Nader positions or so important when you have a special teams coach now coming in to be the head man been delegated to be like that she if you will and I know a lot of giant people have expressed these about the higher and I agree with them a lot of giants fans we get sick and tired of seeing a head coach with the face write a play sheet you saw that from them that could do you certainly saw that from Pat Shurmur and I would totally get the idea all of the optic of wanting to see I head coach twenty coaches by the way well with our office but don't Peterson you saw him last week he was working with Josh McCown for good majority that game on the sideline you'll see any re do the same thing on the flip side the negative you'll see and gazed at the same thing I know that was a band will for him with the jets and it was a bad look for him at the time with the Miami Dolphins but I think the giants were very much sick of the idea of having like that specialty guy leading the team they want a football coach for every guy on the team you open a special teams coach going to provide that he's got to have competent and capable hands for offense of coordinator for defensive coordinator why John Harbaugh has been so successful Baltimore for so many years then about some of his coordinators from rex Ryan did you call while the Gary Kubiak now to Greg Roman he's hired some really really small football mods should surprise he's been successful let's put it off we had to Westport Connecticut change going to get us going he's here on the fan would subject yeah yeah how you doing Jay would somebody would say command one to make a quick point on that rule it's so interesting to me is all against man and the last year I really wanted to judge the harm that rule obviously they when hired and date and it's so interesting that now rule could be the guy that got away for both New York franchise depending on how things turned out with the jets and how god doesn't the giants are they were gonna be walking genau rolled out of the Carolinas I think that's a great point and I almost think it might bother you more from the jet standpoint why because you could have gotten that role on the standard sort of contract you were not gonna pay Matt rule year ago what is it six years nine million dollars a year I mean he was going to go for that but when he is the hot coaching commodity and he's coming off the base year he's ever had a bail or that was only going to drive up the value that much more but you are so right when you say now role could be the guy who got away are your goal because Mike MCAD they will let him take his own coaching staff and for the giants because they will on willing to give him the sort of commitment that he got with Carolina Panthers only your Jack could have a general manager want to shake his head coaches staff that inspired that jazz as far as that GM after a huge free agency and it you're trapped only the judge to do that's pretty remarkable Jake it's shameful when you think about it we said at the time it made absolutely no sense to fire might be catching the when they did it now again I had no problem with the jets moving on from like the cabin he did not do a particularly good job he had way too many dress way you could not land talent the jets fired their head coach last December they could have put Mike my cabinet on the exact same trajectory they didn't do it and yeah if it turns out that Adam gaze ends up being a total debacle here and he's out a year and he's out in two years in Matt rules very very successful that whole decision making element not let him hire a coaching staff having the GM here to begin with it will add to your misery no doubt about it no question about it no question about it but it's just another day in the life is just another day in the life I wanted to ask you because there's been so many Jason Garrett rumors floating around about him being the giant often were Nader what do you make of that and I know obviously you've got a lot of head coaching experience obviously with Dallas I think it's probably not the worst idea bad somebody with some coaching experience so close to judge on the staff but I was gonna wonder what your thoughts are one were on that I'd be okay we chasing here is the offensive coordinator here and I've been very very critical of this suggestion of him becoming the next head coach of the giants I thought that be a terrible idea I thought that be and I did it made absolutely no sense is a proven under achieving head coach but when it comes to call boys I think is a different animal and I think if you look at the job he was able to do in developing that Prescott you put him in a queen in a role I think you can make a work now I want to force GZ Garrett on Joe judge you for scene coordinators on eighty only head coach to me it is a recipe for disaster yes you want Joe judge to pick quality people you don't want him picking guys were completely overmatched but we you have the dynamic of coaches here he's got his agenda offensive coordinators here he's got his agenda scary so I'd be very very mindful of that I said honey K. Nikki joins us without neck JJ what's going on man giant fans remember bill Cowher was a special teams coach just felt that that bill Belichick more John horrible lot of guys the call from that background I don't have a problem with that the issue is the people employees calling the shots that is for you you is baseball you mention this because we did on TV yesterday what would be the better option for the giants the only proven and Joe judge or the under achieving head coach Jason Garrett I said it's not even close it is the on proven a judge judge you know this if you've watched chasing Gerrick coach he had a loaded roster for a long time and the guy has since moved in and it's the title game ouch question octagon Mike McCarthy Jay's in Jack I mean come on really really I'm just saying it but are you said a great point about cultures in New York which I love what you said doc I guess the Jack even if you go the natural add daily lemaire I mean all coaches the jets really we've you rank is that such that the last coach because Manges had teen in Boston jets that Parcells I got to give and I may have rex why it is what it made the title game so I mean okay as far as the cowboys it like fake news JJ thank about may women from they don't know when Jason Garrett's get fired is is this contract that I called you and you know I can't stand McCarty then he has this whole analytical thing with Peter change going on he's a cow I like Gerry's like IT looks let one I'm watching the press is today I'm ET no question about it make yes what about the culture they hard though JJ lot of good coaches in Harlem football guys I'm glad they gonna buckle up your chin straps because they haven't that they haven't blitzed since Jimmy Johnson and they you know what I'm very happy and I and I also see the connection like I see al Davis with his son I see storm and when his son and I see Stephen Jones with Jerry like Jerry looked a little crazy tonight and I love Jerry but you know it's it's good it's a good for sports man the cow was a good to sports listen we set all time you know the cowboys the raiders the steel doors the dolphins these old school franchises of the seventies when it driving a cab was not a lot of success stories about a lot of success raising dolphins been heartened that deployment this giveaway cowboys well you all my head on you want to play the games that matter they'll leave once employed again that matter they brought in a football coach we've got a good resume who has won a lot but the questions about the end of his tenure what a font and that's what I want to see from Mike McCarthy I'm fine with cowboys make an entire I think it's a safe choice I think it's a reasonable choice for a team that has we now expectations you very much get a win now tab coach what are we going to see Mike McCourty a Volvo role and worn from those last couple years with the Green Bay Packers where he did under chief the idea is embracing analytics I think is a good thing I thank the year off will be a good thing I live on a cowboy fan I'm a okay with that why now Redskins fans feeling good cal boys fans are feeling good and I think there is maybe not a negative energy monster jam event because I don't get that sense but it's an on certain energy amongst the jive fat the negative energy coming from ownership and they've got a man and the unknown of take another shot throwing a dart at a coach let's say the Brian ease up next these on a phallus o'brien I think JJ Brian how are you man what's shaking their road are this matter broke rule guy now I don't watch a lot of college football but I did watch for that ball game that they just lost and I so you know that one call it he was you know on a roll it seemed in any body want to go for it on fourth down from the the a side of the ball instead of hunting and let the defense bill it'll work I don't really think this guy's worth nine million dollars a year and I'm not a giant fan but I I don't think they should have mad video of the nine billion for this guy both these college coaches come there are pros anyway and you know you can say Jimmy Johnson but he you know maybe exception Barry Switzer got lucky that he had Jimmy Johnson name so I know this guy turned around a couple of you know like mediocre.

NFL: Two head coaching hires in 10 minutes
"The draft before the combine. We still have several weeks. NFL Action to go. We have some new coaches join. Join the NFL. As recently as this afternoon and joining me to talk about that and the playoff games is our friend with the Atlantic Lindsay Jones Lindsay. How are you? I'm good oh how are you. I'm good I thought this was going to be kind of a quiet day in the NFL landscape and then suddenly to head. Coaching hires in the matter of ten minutes. This morning Matt rule going to the panthers. Joe Judge going to the giants after Mike McCarthy was named cowboys coach earlier this week. So let's start with today's news. Let's start with Matt rule who gets a seven year deal. What sixty seventy million dollars? A lot of money. Samat rule to leave Baylor and come work for the Carolina Panthers. Yeah I mean it sounded like one of those Offers you can't refuse type of situation where I think he's GonNa have a lot of power he's also got a lot of money and A lot of years to do To do what the panthers to do. It's not quite a Jon. GRUDEN ten years one hundred million dollar type of deal but David Tepper is showing that he is not afraid to spend a lot of money to invest very heavily in his head coach and head coach You know when everything else that they're doing I mean they're building a brand new practice facility. They're building the indoor facility. I mean they're spending a lot of money Darren Charlotte and you know I. It was interesting that there was kind of story that also came out. The rule wanted to kind of bring that offer back to the giants Because he was going to interview with the giants as well but The giants said okay. We're going to hire JOE judge instead of paying Instead of hiring not rule it six years seventy million dollars or whatever it is so Really really interesting. Move there Bell what are you. What was your initial? Take on it. I guess and then I'll I'll go with yours it. I think it's interesting in that. I'm not gonNA pretend that I am someone who has watched every Baylor game this year. I've watched a little bit and I've read up a Matt Rule Essay coaching candidate. Now for the past two years of course rule was very very nearly the jets head coach last year before jazz blocked him hiring his own offensive coordinator which point he stepped out of that process and they hired Adam Gates move. That has worked out brilliantly for the jets of course in the afterward with that rule. I think there are certainly elements of a a run first attack. I think he is not someone who is seen as a a progressive offensive minded. They've run EARNHARDT Peos this year. He has seen that as sort of a you know. I can't deal with the devil to run as much of the rushing game as he wants to and I think that's very interesting given what we have. In Carolina we have Christian McCaffrey who's entrenched is the best running back in football at the moment. We Have Cam Newton who I think you know certainly seems like this offer. This higher would probably be good for him in a way back for him in a way. Oh you know good in that. The run first attack does seem to favor can if he can be a player who does impact game with his leg. Still which we don't know coming back from injury but it's pretty clear that you know if Matt rule wants to move on from Cam Newton. He's going to have plenty of time to move on and higher higher or or or or sign up backup quarterback or assigned a young quarterback or draft a quarterback and give that guy a time to develop so I kind of feel of two minds. It's for this when it comes to the biggest decision for the second the second biggest decision the panthers have to make this office and I don't know how you feel about do you do. What does this mean for you for Cam Newton? Yeah I I think the first thing is just how healthy is he gonNA be. What's his time? Line going to be like their That's the thing that just is over everything and has been over everything for the panthers for going on two years now I still think he's GonNa be back and and I've been I've been thinking about this a lot over the last few few days I've been writing about brees and Brady and thinking about all of the potential quarterback moves that we're gonNA see the offseason and well this time of year. It's really fun fun to speculate about. All the potential moves and this year is more interesting than any quarterback off season that I can remember and maybe ever certainly certainly as long as my nfl institutional memory is But ultimately moving on from a quarterback and guy who's taking you to a super bowl who's won an MVP Without some sort of really solid plan in place is it's a really hard at it. It's so rare that it happens so ultimately I think he ends up being back. I think he's there's so many things that you can do with him if he's going to be healthy but that if he's going to be healthy is just the biggest question that's been out there and We're not going to know that for a couple abundance I guess the good news is that they don't have to make that move or decision on Cam Newton. Today I mean they they really can can wait a couple of months but ultimately. I think that there are better team with him. And the options outside of him are just not that great. I mean. There's some intriguing names out there but I just think I don't think you're GonNa do better than Cam. Newton Can A new. There's even seventy five percent of the quarterback that he was in two thousand fifteen when he was at his peak. Yeah or even the guy who was playing well in the first half of two thousand eighteen. I think that can traffic is still really good There's a definitely interesting sort of dichotomy with that rule or I guess not a paradox. In that he is a very conservative. Very first coach. But we've we've seen in the report effortless. Hire one of the reasons that the panthers were able to Land Matt run into the panthers was because they're making a huge investment in sports science. You mentioned the practice facility being built there. I mean it seems like it's a you know. This is the the beginning of a major infrastructure shift for the panthers to being an organization that they wanNA emulate the steelers and they wanna be simultaneously Eh analytics friendly at the same time so I think it was going to be a really interesting sort of narrow path to hit their where they are a run for his team which is typically considered to be sort of a antiquated or old school notion but making it work and so I think in the long run. They might end up being more similar to the Ravens. Who seemed to embody all those things right now in the steelers? Yeah I mean that's absolutely the franchise right now that you want to emulate if you look at WHO's doing it the best right now from both play on the field but also what they're doing inside their building and the the mindset that they have with the type of people that they hire The way that they make all their decision I think it's the Ravens and I guess that comes from the steelers family and that's so so that's what he's familiar with. But I think the other thing that we we didn't talk about was not rule that we just really have to mention. Is that while we can talk about schematics. And look at his Ex's knows and yes he's run I but you know what college offenses he bringing those sorts of things. I think the biggest reason that he was this really hot. NFL Coaching candidate over the last two years. This is his reputation. That's kind of a program builder and The work that he did at temple the way that he really kind of overhauled Baylor over the last two the three years when they were really a disaster The the way he interacts with players You know he brought his father and his former pastor and coach and you know I just think that Dad's what made him so attractive in addition to obviously like the the the skills that he has. It's an actual you know coach but You know I think we get so caught happen. Like what exactly is this. Guy's offense going to look like or what exactly is this guy's defense gonNa look like when really what owners and management are looking at is. What's this Guy's vision? How is he going to interact after everything everybody in the building? How does he relate to players What is his vision? All those sorts of things not really why they came out rule You know a bunkers you you know seventy million dollar contract Jack. Think that's very fair and I think that's really what they're bringing matt rule to do. I mean this is a guy who they think is going to overhaul everything about the panthers. The culture is going to change not that rhinovirus culture was bad. Obviously it worked for a long time but I think you know this is going to be a eighteen. An organization top to bottom built in in the vision of Matt Rule on the other side of things You think about the hiring. The giants made today in Joe Judge who granted. I think there's been that those sort of initial tweets coming out the wide receivers coach. He's really special teams coach. He is not good for one year. He has been the Patriot special teams coach for a long time. He has worked under Bill Bell. Check US worked under Nick Sabin. Those are pretty successful people to work underneath and yet it sort of seems like not. Maybe this is wrong to say but it seems like this higher is out of nowhere. Is that fair to say a little bit. I mean he was.
"special teams coach" Discussed on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA
"They were back to inside the huddle we welcome into Sebastian gate owner of Arbor motion specialize auto care here in Ann Arbor former no you still will will be former we current special teams coach bright high school I'd I'd say current okay you know you're not ready to walk away and are you you know what sometimes you say you know what this is a lot of responsibility away from my main job which is which is owning and operating a very busy our repair facility and it's just so much fun and it's just so cool you just you always get pulled back in so what I mean yeah you you just went to the state championship yes so you know I have a sense of fashion that when were and football season next year you are back with the team probably probably you'll never be able to turn it off never know bill turned off never yeah I I I I have I can't remember the last year that I did not coach football and I have I can't imagine sitting in front of the TV and watching a game and just really having a tug at mesa now you don't we get comes apart when we go a little bit later on I mean the you know as we we don't as many football game specific football games harbor we get all that in the spring you know when things I want to talk to you about is drafting a talent how do you know how do you look for your the NFL how are you looking for you know players can help you a certain position how are you looking for that in college you know how do you distinguish between the kicker if you want the kicker that you don't want us we'll talk about that in the coming weeks here but we do have a game to talk about a couple things for this Michigan football game and got I mean Sebastian you you and I are on the same page I think I think Zach was right there to kinda Jake moody this check money that and there's a little bit of a heck up in the middle of season and they started giving Quinn Orleans more opportunities and here's Quinn Ording going out there and he makes three field goals in the citrus bowl including a fifty seven yard or which yeah let's just talk about the dynamics of making a fifty seven yarder because we've seen a handful of players may come from beyond fifty five yard to cement that is a lot more consistent Jana fell but in college fifty seven yarder is a really big deal it is it is however I always coach my kickers to kick an extra point the same way they would a fifty yarder and what I mean by that is you kick that fifty yard field goal just like you would an extra point in other words don't learn the same movement two different ways or don't work because you you decide also you want to put a little extra more you know a little more juice into it you're gonna change something in your technique and your accuracy is just gonna is it's just going to go away so really your distance should never change and you should just always be working on your accuracy it's it's really no more magical than that but it takes a special leg and try to get a fifty seven yard specially it's off the ground so in high school you're allowed to use a T. most high schoolers are using a one inch T. the old two inch T. is kind of reserve for junior football now eat it all you old people remember the beagle two inch block that was allowed in college many years ago but in high school you still allowed to use a block we we use a half inch T. so that it's as close to the ground as possible in case these kids do want to move on and kick somewhere in college they don't have as much of an adjustment the reason why I still insist on using the T. as I paint a little white dot in the middle of all our tees to give our holder at target the reason I do that is there's a big difference between a high school holder and a college holder so when they put their finger on the ground and then they look up to the snapper to receive the ball they no longer know where that spot was and I need my guys in high school that a target so that that so what I'm getting at there is it's a lot easier to kick off of the T. than it is off the ground so when you can kick a fifty seven yard or in college versus even high school it's actually more impressive yeah in the in the thing too I mean you know I think kickers kinda get a little bit of bad rap is there not athletes or at least the athlete that a defense of tackle or a linebacker or a defensive back is but you know an ability to hit a fifty seven yard I mean it's got to be fast twitch muscles got to be you know certain something going on in that lower body in order to do that because not everybody can do that right you have to have some athletic ability that doesn't necessarily mean though you'd be a great running back or a safety or whatever but you do obviously have to have some sort of athletic ability back back back in the day when you kick the football by toe bashing believe or not all the linemen were the kickers you look back and all the great kickers from you know the the the seventies and before that they're all lineman they're just big beefy guys got behind that ball and just punched it yeah then the soccer style came along and all son is these little guys from Lithuania hi come over and and using the soccer style and and more the American players kind of picked up on that even though they didn't really play soccer on and then you had a lot of kids that weren't quote on quote athletes as kickers but that's even change these guys that are kickers in colleges specially at at summer like university of Michigan guarantee you they could play a position in high school and very well at it is it far more accurate to kick it the weather's been done now why did it go the way the dodo bird took a toll on it is it is much more accurate but believe it or not you don't get as much hype their distance so when you use when you kick soccer style you drive it more if you look at old videos or old film and you watch as a tow basher that ball just goes so high in the air which actually is not an advantage especially on a windy day so the actor she comes in with the soccer stock ticker he's got a bigger sweet spot on the on his foot to contact a bigger sweet spot on the ball and then he drives it more than he then he you know get up there in the clouds and you're just gonna be more accurate that way Rihanna Sebastian gate owner of Arbor motion specialize Autechre here in Ann Arbor six six nine at St circle just over by I ninety four and State Street seven three four seven six one one zero eight eight and our motion it dot com now you told me Sebastian is that when you were watching the the fifty seven yard by queen or dean that he all that this almost income to be because I'm sorry go ahead is actually the second case okay it was it was not the fifty seven yard it was the one before that okay but continue so it's which I believe is the forty two yarder and so what did what did Quinn or dean do in his set up and then in his motion that he is it are you I think you would you said in his catalog with auto corrected himself in the middle of it yeah here's what happened and then I'm gonna tell you a little story about what happened to my kicker from Brighton in the two thousand eighteen playoffs against discount what are so Quinn lines up his steps are great his stance is great as as you know I'm not thrilled with his plant foot being pointed over the top of the holder should be pointed where it's going to plant but this is why I thought this was so amazing because of the way he lines of his plan for it he took a fall step if you have any video or can go back and watch he took his little jab step we his left foot his plant put before the ball was snapped okay and what he did was he froze he didn't try and step back he froze and said okay and then wait for this ball to be snapped it got snapped any went through is kicking motion it was a beautiful kick all right a less refined kicker will do what my kicker to hit my high school kicker Eddie's can't would in November of two thousand eighteen action was October two thousand eighteen were lining up for forty one yarder it's going to tie the game there's four seconds left we're going to tie the game going to overtime hopefully Beatty's can't would move on to place a lien he lines up he takes that fall stab the ball doesn't get snap first time you done it all year and he realized what he had done and as he started to move back to get in his stance the ball was snapped he began his approach again it was all off you got under the ball on this matter fact I watched the film and I could see myself on the sideline the minute that happened I turned around pulled my head set of my Jack I didn't watch it because I knew it was bad a new season was over and I lost on so when I saw Quinn do that I'm like that kid is is very mature as a kicker he did the right thing he froze and said okay I'm just going to wait for very impressive well all right when we come back we'll talk to Sebastian all about our motion get making sure that your car is fully handle in the winter what what what winter what winter but it's coming it's coming it has to it always does in the fifties this weekend I I who can

Is Homefield Advantage Dead?
"WANNA start here eight and I think this allows us to get in week fifteen you mailed me some stats last week And now we saw again today. Road teams were nine and six against the spread. The road teams won all nine of those games outright for the season road teams against the spread. One twenty five ninety three three and five there thirty two games over five hundred while home favorites Through fifteen weeks or fifty seven eighty one in five twenty four games. That's amazing right there. And we have had over and over again these double digit losses. We just had it today again with San Francisco cousin. Sal I ask you this homefield advantage dead. It might be there might be. I think you said you said it in basketball you were saying was dead. It's funny yesterday on text exchange. But yeah if you're looking through your pools and you have to pick sixteen games a week if there are no bison. You're going six and ten every week it's because you're taking home favorites. I know I know it's hard hard. I know when the better team is laying six at home. It's hard to not circle the left side but stay away. It's very bizarre an extremely bizarre week. The raiders was ending that Falcons ending the Vikings first half cost people money the way that ended obviously the Redskins Eagles. That might have been the worst ending if you had if you had the redskins the plus points Or if you're going against Cooper cop in your honesty semi funky you hold. That thought we were talking about that. I think what's interesting to me. I I remember I wrote about this at the end of last decade ironic. I think Oh eight zero nine I wrote about this trend with with the NFL where it didn't see my homefield matter the way it did and then we had settled into this eight nine year run. We're homefield still mattered. But not like a date when we were growing up where it was like. If you went into somebody else's house also really hard to win and then you get to this year and I think we're seeing it with basketball to serves texting boat this weekend. I think there's three reasons I think the first reason is the secondary market. And the fact that you just don't have stadiums anymore words just completely fans for the home team yet so it it always seems to be more splintered than it used to be. The tickets have gotten way more expensive so I think that's that's Priced out some of the crazies. You know like some of the friends wrens. You had grown up some of the friends that I had back in Boston. It's just harder for them to for tickets and then I think the third thing. There's been so much talk about civility ability at games and you know fan behaviors. Just been a huge spotlight on how people behave and what they're allowed to do and yell. Oh and all that stuff and the crowds just seem Tamer and we saw today with the raiders. Blew a game late to Jacksonville Euro and this was the last I Oklahoma Game. It was on those on that. They're not gonNA lose their last home game and frigging g Menchu when right down the field out and then we saw it again today with Buffalo. It's like Ow Josh. Challenge when push comes to Shove Jiaxuan is not GonNa be able to get points in Pittsburgh. The crowd will take him out of it their defense no Josh Allen right down and scored. I don't know who has the great home field advantage anymore. So we'll Josh Allen didn't have a great game no thirteen completions. That was just an. I'm sorry I Pittsburgh Burke might still make the playoffs and I pray that they do because I have. They're the only team I could see betting against in that first round like I have a feeling on any other first round match unless Pittsburgh goes to Kansas City. I mean they've they've got in the last five games in which the supposedly hot they scored fifteen points a game. It's just Mike. Tomlin did as much much as he could. He can't do what you can do for this offense. You can't fake punt from his own twenty eight every week. I'm sorry but I think you're right. I think it's all the things you said. I also I think. Road teams coaches management has figured out the exact amount of time a team should spend in the opposing city. You know it's easier to travel now all that kind of stuff so there's not that much The jet lag isn't as big a concern. But you're right. We used to see division winners at seven and one eight eight. No now aside unless you like the packers this cowboys eagles four and three Kansas City foreign three at home like even the really good teams. You know Houston only five and two at home. Buffalo's GonNa make the playoffs only four and three at home i. I don't know what the reason is but trust us. These home teams are not. They're not better than they were five ten years ago. Yeah and I think that Tennessee Games are good example right. Yep didn't really seem like it mattered. Where that game was played and I don't think it's GonNa Matter Week? Seventeen either right now. The crowd was was good. They were into it but it wasn't like wasn't like the Shawn Watson was going to be affected by the crowd. We left out another reason that I think matters maybe Charles back to our childhoods. But you know the headsets the head facing the helmets and the and the QB being able to hear the offensive coordinator being able to move faster and the the even somebody like trubisky you know they were in that game that I know the packers won by eight. And if he didn't see the game you just assume The packers they were up double digit second half but the bears were lingering in that game and there were a couple of moments era when it seemed like they had a chance maybe to force overtime and I didn't think h Bisky who I don't think is good then look scared but he. He certainly wasn't rattled by playing in Lambo. So I stopped when when you know the we've been doing million dollar pegs you and I have been. We've been betting all season. I've really stopped looking at home field. They're very very few times. Do I say to myself. Oh my God that teams home. I really really love having the home team here even even tonight I bet on Buffalo. Hello at Pittsburgh. And as you said Josh Allen wasn't great but they were still able to move the ball and they needed to and their defense certainly traveled. It didn't seem to matter to them where they were playing. And I just think we throw homefield out. I don't know where it really matters anymore. Well if we go into the playoffs saying I just can't see so and so winning at ax EXC. There's not that many of those anymore right right. Then probably win their game at home and you know the niners or or or award seahawks over wax or they'll have a by but you know those some of those row teams near Green Bay will probably win at home but you can't say unless it's dot co dot com is going to Kansas City. I can't really say Buffalo. There's no way they're winning in Houston right or anything like that especially when you get to the one to three seeds when they match up so do you think is Seattle place that you feel like homefield battered team in the playoffs That's probably top three but not as much Chisato did eight years ago when Tony Romo had to go there or something like that. I don't think it's slow because think about what are they foreign to Yeah about about their last couple of games whether seven and one on the road I mean it is scary arose team right there. Last couple of games Minnesota went in there and put thirty autumn atom. Yep and then the game before that James Put thirty four on them in that game went to overtime I don't know I I wanted to start. The season isn't yeah. It's not the

Absolutely true. You know? On sure when you're walking around you'd think about when you were here with this game. And I was talking about the other day. And I said, you know, it's amazing people forget because they forget the game because the Super Bowl became a, blah. But your team wins the championship game forty one to nothing beats the Vikings who everyone thought was gonna win the game. And you guys town them Kerry Collins gets five touchdown passes. You have this enormous day. And then you run into a juggernaut on a on a bad day in the Super Bowl. So I mean when you think back, what do you think back to about that Super Bowl? You had a great run that year he made the guarantee you went through the season the whole thing you win. You win the championship game in a row. And then here you are at the Super Bowl know funny thing is I thought Minnesota Vikings were the best team in the final. Lotta people did. Yeah. Billick said he thought they were gonna play the Vikings. Yeah. Oh, yeah. We just came out and played and they had a bad day.

Everything went wrong turns bad calls guys fallen down.

"Okay. They walks off like so like there is I'm not gonna make the NFL because I played. So in my mind, the senior bowl is like this huge opportunity for me. It was like the biggest thing ever. I'm gonna go kick a couple seventy yard field goals. I'm fucking just bombed. Here will do good. I'm not going to the combines as my only shot and in turn. It was just like the biggest cost of fuck in the history. I've talked to Cincinnati Bengals coaches names Darren Simmons during Simmons friend of mine now he was the coach of the north the Bengals were the coach of the north Jaguars coach of the south. They had just fired or special teams coach. So we didn't have a special teams go. So literally it was. Fucking. So we didn't meetings with the north coaches because they couldn't see the practice because with the north time. So I sit down with their and the Bengals special teams coach, and he goes, so what are you? Are you a ticker? Or are you a punt because you got to be one or the other? I was like, I don't know. I think I can do both. I think I have the talent to do both. If I was given the opportunity he's while you're in the senior bowl as a kicker. So if I were you I would never punt a football again. That's what he said to me exact words K. So I was like all right. I'll take that too hard. I appreciate you so much. You know, this is an NFL special teams coach. This guy's a big deal. You know, and I was he starts talking to me more because I can tell you one of us a like a good guy. You know, we're having good conversation. He was the dude. And he was like I run the drills at the combine too excited. I'm not invited to combine. He was like how are you in the senior bowl, and you're not invited? The combine you have to be the only person in him. Senior bowl that is not going. I think it was like me. And maybe one other person trying to get you in there. I was like thank you. He tried it didn't work out. So I didn't punt. I didn't punt. I didn't do it. I was like this NFL coach just told me not to fit on this. We'll do this. So then obviously the coach strapping upon it's like a whole. Hey, we got a punt. And then a first playoff first preseason. Our first preseason ends against Cincinnati Bengals right by that point at one my job, they cut to mass. They the first preseason game. I hit to sixty punts like my first two points. The colts were sixty yards like sixty three wait a minute. Tim mass day. Yeah. He's under for the Packers. He was on the he was both hunter Smith was. It was hunter than you, wouldn't it. Yeah. Hundred was cut Tim mass. They was brought in to compete against me. My rookie year special teams coach told me to my face. I wanted them to draft. Tim Bill Polian wanted Jew. So we're bringing Tim into compete with you. Oh, thanks, man. Conference. I have to learn how to fuck him. Punt is a natural punter. That's awesome. So that will thing happens. Then we go through I win the job. Second game was average trying to hit another sixty orders. So it was like I didn't do as great third game. I did. Well, final games against the Bengals. And in warmups Darren the special teams coach for the Bengals walks over to me, you know, and I go thank God. I fucking punted a ball again out of fucking John. Never. And he and I just have like from that moment forward. It's like a really good really correlation in Jodi who was with the Cowboys. He wanted me to do all three. He wanted me to do all three. He wanted me to come kick for the Cowboys. And then eventually punt and kickoff, and every time we played against Josie Millicent any team that he was coaching for. He was like, I still think you could be the guy that can do all three I'm like banks. But my knees are saying, no..
"special teams coach" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Which was not pleasant to anyone that they they had a hard time pushing this through to get it to you know, to possessions, if the I did not score a touchdown. I think they pushed as far as they're willing to go. And I think the value of being able to play defense and then winning on a field goal. You know? In your only opportunity to when you get the ball back. I think is enough. And I just don't see them moving on that at all. I don't think they should really. I mean, Patrick Mahomes, maybe the MVP this league. And even get a chance to touch the football understand play me don't blame me blame his defense than if you want to. But you know, I think the I think the system is good. I don't like the college system. I think it extends the game in many cases too long. I just I just don't see that. There will be a movement there. Okay. And last one for you. And you know, I love for you to name a name like when you're the head of NFL refs. The toughest phone call. You had to make after one of your ficials blue something on the field to coach just like river on clearly had. That's got to be the toughest he's ever had to make the wanting to Sean Payton yesterday, Mike. Yeah. Well, what was yours? I I mean the toughest situation I ever got involved with really was the not the tuck play situation believe it or not. But it was the bl- the missed call in the forty nine or giant game. And when when the the giants attempted to kick a field goal, and it was blocked, then they threw it actually an eligible receiver who had an ineligible number. We lost track of him. And you know, and it should have been pass interference. Which would have certainly kept the giants alive and probably propel them to the next round of the playoffs that call that. I had to make the giants was a was a really tough call. We what's his name come on by my blanket kid is the special teams coach for John Jim fossil. I had to call on. So go possible and was not a happy man with a happy man at all. And then I wanted to make myself feel better. So my. Second call with Mary you cheat to tell him that. I was gonna make public statement that we we blew the call, and I didn't want to give the impression that I was lessening the value of their victory by admitting this mistake, and I called mooching. I said mooch, I just I just want you to know that I'm gonna make this statement. And he said to me bummer up the phone. And then he said publicly, then he said bummer publicly. I know he told you the same thing off the off Mike to that was his response to my call bummer bummer that make made your life. Worst, isn't it? When he said, no, I have appreciated. I'm always appreciated Mucci anyway. And you knew it when he said that have you know, how his mind works. Anyways. Something that he would say at home or whatever bummer and hung up the phone and on C consistent. Never heard that end of the story. Fantastic. Mike great chat with you. Great job. As always we'll see down the line. You got it minutes per foxsports chat with him since day one of NFL network when he was the head of NFL refs doing official review on total access..
"special teams coach" Discussed on The Tony Kornheiser Show
"Now having completed his first year as defensive coordinator heading into his second year defensive coordinator. This is the guy that DJ swearing in basically called an Amador, and then was cut from the team resulted at saying he doesn't know what he's doing. They must have felt he didn't know what he was doing because they interviewed people for that job. They chased people who are defensive specialists and had been head coaches in the league. They chase that some of them. Former reds Todd Bowles day didn't get anybody. And so now, they say he's going to say, we're just picking brains. Hire people who is always put out there to clean up in five went out and did the best cook. And I thought about this. You know, this is not. Gary reaches the same conclusion. I just I'm not sure anybody really wants to work there. I'm not sure that they do. And it's not about being the fifth worst company. I didn't know about that. I'm just not sure that they want to work for Bruce Allen as general manager you look at the Washington Redskins. And you just say, you know, what is the appeal? It's just the dysfunctional by any objective measure now by objective measures. You would be going to DC for a coach who is definitely going to be on the hot seat all of next season. So there's really not a lot of job security for you at a place. That's. I mean, maybe. Yeah. I mean, I would say objectively dysfunctional. I mean, there's been no there's been no continuity there. The one thing it's got going for it. As a defensive team is there is some talent there front young guys. He's Alabama guys. After well, so that would appeal to sort of maybe young person who's looking to get an opportunity it's not going to appeal to Steve Wilks to Todd Bowles guys head coaches, I you know, they should have hired. I mean, a lot of people should've fired him. They should have hired Louis Riddick as a general manager. Yes, he worked in their organization. He's really really good. Yeah. They didn't hire him. You know, they hired Sean McVay who worked in their organizations, but understand that because he was thirty one years old. I understand that you need to know about the organization is that Benk Kalica or Wicca that the special teams coach for the Redskins left after the season to take a job as a special teams coach for another team. It's no one in the NFL takes a lateral gig. I mean, he basically just said I wanna get with this job. I don't wanna do it. Here that reminded me of that scene spinal tap where they're like meeting the other band. Yeah. We're gonna go wait in the lobby. We just don't wanna I don't wanna be here with you anymore. You know? Yeah. I mean, look at objectively would anyone if you're looking at a company and you say, oh, what's the boss-like? That'd be the end of it. I mean, why would you ever want to work for Dan? And Bruce doesn't seem they don't even just treading water. The falcons they six three and they closed one in six until Alex Smith got her and everybody was angry at people think.

"special teams coach" Discussed on The Right Time with Bomani Jones
"They support it by saying if you just make him coordinator, he'll leave the behavior. Elsewhere. But my opinion is unless you actually found someone who is a genius who is literally genius. And will be a step of head seven head of everyone else. Then it's fine. He can go which you can't let leave and someone who's leading your organization. So you need to get some competent and capable of that it doesn't matter hardball with a special teams coach, right? And you could argue that being a special teams coach is the thing that prepares you most for leading team because you don't have a unit when your special teams, you don't have any real way to to discipline or to get people respect treat you with any respect because you're special teams coach don't want to do that. Right. There's like three guys just the only way I'm being what you gotta fill up the rest of them position with dudes who don't wanna do that. Like that is a real training ground for how you become. That's a great voice. Nobody's out. Nobody's happy to be here. Right. Why am I here because I've number five on the depth? Somebody who was like a kid like when I grow up. I'm a go down in bus that let's say all those jobs hazardous. Don't nobody wanna do that the BUSTER in mind or has it come with big money and acclaim not name wedge. I guess that they've outlawed three bad wage that is something that the children will not understand. Is there used to be a guy whose whole job was to hurl himself three people who have locked arms? It was. And it was to go get a concussion, and they started changing like your job right now. Go knock yourself out cold. They started changing it in college. So we used to have a wedge is made up of running backs and fullbacks like athletic guys because the wedge was made up of there's a frontline on kickoff returner. Then there's a middle line. And you might sometimes kick it to the middle line. So they will put athletic guys in there. They changed that when I was in college. They changed it to start putting off into of lime. And in the way there were not defensive lineman running down because you gotta run sixty yards. So they would safeties and maybe some linebackers mostly safeties in corners on kickoff. And somebody had to go bust that wage that was made up of in college at least made up of two to three three. Hundred pounds. What you don't think that is a training ground for learning how to deal with individuals? If you gotta talk to hundred twenty five pounds safety into explain to him. Why this is a good idea? That's a great point is the same thing for all of those positions. So feel goal essentially field goal team is you're just there to take a shot those mostly off of lime but feel team you can't shoot out you just gotta lean in and get lit. That's whenever I've seen those meetings. They talk about how that old motto of you can do anything for three seconds. When you got to lead with that that you doing terrible. That was like the motto of all the field team ever been around. Like, hey, guys, you can do anything for three seconds lean in take that shot these three points, which is why players overreacts when kick missed field goes man, I took this this might concussion. Kicked it over there. Like, I mean, I maybe eat my dinner through a straw when I'm sixty but you can kick the ball through numbering. Oh.

"So at the end of the day. He's he's a really good job in Miami. So I'd like to see him get a shop. I think he is a major component of Matt haack becoming a really strong punter. Because if I mean, we all recall, everyone hated that move. And I mean the team was getting killed for an now mad hawk is a strength for this team. So that's part here. So that's what we here's what I meant. When I talk about the fact that I don't understand why Ross and company Greer. Would. Not hire Resonator in reason for that is if you're ended John Harbaugh who was a special teams coach before he became head coach. And you're looking for a fiery special teams guy? You already have one in house, and you don't have to trade picks for them. Because I mean, the it's they're just rumors right now. But there are people saying like the asking price could be two first rounders for John Harbaugh. That's insane. The guy was almost fired. I mean, it's not like, he's firmly entrenched in Baltimore's future plans here. So I mean, that's get it. There. Baltimore's was trying to or people in Baltimore's camp or whatever are just trying to Levy for as much as they can get in the deal like that. But. John Harbaugh in my opinion, might be a players coach some people, but I've seen how he treats his staff. I don't think he's a super tactful guy when it comes to handling people around him, and you just fired Adam gays for for essentially the same thing. So it if you're into that two thousand twelve Super Bowl the fact that they're typically always really strong on defense. And if that's I candy for you. That's fine. But I think that there are a lot of people in Baltimore who worked make that happen. I think Ozzie Newsome killing his drafts. Certainly had a big thing to do that something Miami has not done for every Miami draft. That's great. Then they take two steps back with a they follow it up with something. That's not good. He think about how much good they did in twenty sixteen. The book is still open for what's going to be written for twenty seventeen. Right now, it's not super promising. We'll see. But if you're if you're looking for John Harbaugh, I mean, I've in my opinion, I think you have a young more likeable version in Darren Rizzi. So I don't know. That's just where I'm at there. I don't you don't have to trade picks forum. He doesn't even have to relocate. I mean, he's already in house team loves them. That's a big thing in my opinion right now. Again, that's something. They just they just Greece the previous coach for the the relationship with some players sounds like you mentioned Damian Williams coming out supporting him. I saw Mike pouncey was tweeting out about him everyone. Everyone has really nice things to say. And maybe that goes along way for what this team is looking for in their next head coach. Now, if they go outside in I mean, full disclosure to everyone we recorded a show last line than ended up. I mean there we're having problems with I think the internet potatoes last night. So we ended up having to scrap it. What what we spent a lot of time talking about is a lot of people who are also up on the dolphins wishlist in terms of head coaching candidates, like Vic Fangio's way up there. And I mean, I'm pretty not gonna earn myself any favors here. But if I were Vic Fangio, I don't I wouldn't take the dolphins job. He might maybe I'm not him. So maybe he looks at it. And he loves the challenge. And maybe Stephen Ross looks adamant things like this guy doesn't take any crap whatsoever..

But do you think you could hang up because I'm kind of wondering right now, if that might be more possible that we're considering because he has an out every year in this contract to be able to do that. So do you think that's a distinct possibility? I mean, the only way I think that we don't know the full amount of details on his injury. I mean, he was well enough to kick the last few games. So you assume he's fine or close to it. I think as long as he wants to play he's going to play. You know, like you mentioned he only missed one field goal this year. He he had twenty attempts or one tents and he made twenty of them like it's not like he's lost a step. He had his best feel percentage this year with ninety he made ninety five point two percent. And that's kicks over twenty, you know, counting ticks over twenty attempts. He he's doing, you know, usually with kickers, you get rid of them all if they start to suck if you wanna put it bluntly like he's not he's actually like he's you know, he missed them game. So it's hard to say. He's getting better. But he definitely didn't get worse as long as health is there and he wants to play. I don't see any reason why the falcons shouldn't keep him. You know, the whole Vecchio thing. It's interesting that they kept him on the roster for the last several games once Matt Bryant returned. You know, that's you know, and then on top of that we have new we'll get a new special teams coach, I don't know how much that place into the kicking game. Probably not a lot. 'cause my Brian just keeps kicking butt. So to sum it up. I think he'll be back. I think they would have put because this this is what I I'm not saying he should retire at all. But leading up to this game. Like, I was saying he he spent a good portion of his career with the buccaneers a couple of years. And that's really where you went. Okay. You know, he spent people don't realize he spends some seasons with the job. Ryan, I think he he was with the dolphins before I think there was one or two other teams, but he spent a couple of seasons what the buccaneers. And that's where people really knew who he was. And then obviously, he's been a legend in Atlanta. I think it would have been a perfect ending to go into Tampa. Like, let's pretend that was it wouldn't you felt wow. Matt Bryant, you know, he went out how he came in just a legend, you know, one game in Tampa. You know, that's that's what you would want. But the fact that nothing was said of that game before like, oh, this might be met Brian's last game. There's been no whispers of it. If you follow his wife, Melissa Brian on Twitter. She's anytime somebody's really said anything about him retiring, or whatever she's kinda put her sense in saying, you know, like he hasn't said anything about retiring. So I don't think it's going to happen because. When you have a, you know, you could say Morten Andersen or some. But in my eyes Bryant's you know, top-five picker in NFL history just based on clutch. But he's definitely without a doubt the best kicker in falcons history, my eyes, and there would have been more to it than waking up, you know, during a weekday going to work and being like, oh, do you hear Matt Bryant retired? Like, he's not he's not gonna do that. They would give him a going out party. If that makes sense, I think he's at that. He's at that level where you're going to get that that treatment, you know, and they might even say during the regular season. Like, I don't know we three or four something. And he's starting to slow down any like, you know, I think this is my last season 'cause they're going to give him that that legend treatment, and he deserves it..
