Fresh update on "special teams coach" discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"What would your life be like if you had seven kids? Would you be good at your job? No, I would be terrible. So you have three and a half times as many kids as you have right now. And that's just what your life is like. You have seven kids. So Robert Sala has seven kids. I heard that. I was like, how is he even like the special teams coach, much less the NFL head coach? I don't know anyone who has seven kids. As a fellow bald man with Robert Sala, I'm like, how does he have time to just shave that dome? I mean, it's always bright and shiny. If I had seven kids, this thing would be growing out quite a bit. So yeah, I don't know. He's figured out some way to keep his job. Seven is just like, I can't even envision it in my head. If you say three, I can envision it. If you say four, like give me 10 minutes, maybe I can pass that. And it's just like, what is happening here? Do you know anyone with four kids? I don't know. Now it's just like once, now with my friend group, it's like once someone has the third, it's like, whoa, like, whoa, what happened there? I feel like two has become the very common number for most people of my age. Three kids really feels like you're riding a motorcycle 90 miles an hour without a helmet. Seven kids? Anyway, I might be going against seven kid Robert Sala. All right, I asked you for two picks. What's your first one? All right, first one, I am going to Houston. I like this Texans team minus three and a half at home against the Denver Broncos. So this is part a little bit of a fade on the Broncos and part, I really liked this Texans team. The first part is the way the Broncos are winning. I give them credit, you know, you and I talked about before the season, you know, I adopted your whole, you know, replace the horrible coach and then bet on that team. And we were like, all right, Sean Payton, Nathaniel Hackett, this is going to be easy. And then a month in we're going, all right, that didn't work out. Well, now it's, you know, they're right in the mix. They've won five in a row. I don't think the way they're winning is sustainable. They're plus 13 on turnovers during this five game winning streak. That's five turnovers better than any other team. Like that's great. Turnovers are important. There's also a randomness to it, a luck to it that I don't think they're going to be able to keep winning that way. You know, offensively, it's like Russell Wilson, check down, hand the ball off. And then like three times a game, he makes an incredible play to Courtland Sutton, but he's thrown for 200 yards once during this five game winning streak in the year 2023. That's like unheard of for a quarterback. So I just think offensively and defensively, I think the Broncos are competent. I think they're still below average. I don't think they're nearly as good as that five game winning streak would indicate. And then on the other side, I really liked this Texans team. Even last week, they lose to the Jaguars, but CJ Stroud, like they weren't winning that game schematically. He was just creating and making plays and he looked incredible. Like he's gone from, hey, he's a fun rookie quarterback to now like, no, I think he's like one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. They're third in passing TVOA right now with that supporting cast, with the rookie quarterback, he throws for over 300 every week. And so I think Stroud and this Texans team, they're gonna bounce back. Their secondary has gotten healthy. I think they're making the playoffs. I don't think the Broncos are making the playoffs. And I like Houston quite, I wish it was minus three instead of three and a half, but I still like them at three and a half. You know, sometimes you can't be afraid of that hook. You just gotta do it. Yeah. So I was looking at this one as well, that Denver five game winning streak, they beat the Packers by two, really weird 24 to nine chiefs win, which whatever that'll happen. Mahomes was sick I think. Yeah, Mahomes was sick. They still won, but yeah. The game had a weird vibe the whole game. Buffalo 24, 22, a game that Buffalo is just kicking themselves. Minnesota, they win 21, 20, and it felt like Dobbs had a chance to steal that one. And then last week, you know, they beat Cleveland 29, 12. That game was pretty close and DTR got hurt and PJ Walker came in and it was over. But I thought what was, I felt like Cleveland had a chance to come back. What was interesting is Denver came down in the first two series and just butt smacked the Browns defense and scored both times. And that was the first time I was like, wait a second.
A highlight from Call Centre employees - stopping the quitting
"In this short talk episode, I speak to Beverly Hatthorn about quiet quitting and what employers, specifically call centres, can do about it. We discuss the causes of quiet quitting and the signs to look out for. I create clear thinking and decisive leaders who can amplify their influence. Contact me to find out how I can help you or your organisation. And today our guest is Beverly Hatthorn. How are you doing, Beverly? I am well, thank you so much Judith and you? Yeah, I'm really good and quite excited for this conversation. But before we jump in, tell me what excites you about life? A new day. I would say a new day. I'm always excited to see what's going to happen today. Will it be my new client or will I see an old friend or just what will happen today? Will I get some financial unexpected windfall? Oh lovely, that would be something to be excited for, isn't it? Yes, yes. I am always excited for a new day. I'm always excited and thankful for a new day because we never know what that new day is going to bring and I'm uncurably optimistic. Optimistic is good. So for an optimistic person like yourself, what do you think about this quiet quitting epidemic? What do you think of this quiet quitting taking place? Well, I think that leaders and organizations can maybe do a little more to reduce that. I think that investigation and review needs to occur to find out why that's happening in your organization. And first, of course, you need to identify who is participating in the quiet quitting and then you need to identify who may latch on to that concept. So I think that we need to learn as leaders, we need to learn what is making our employees back off and not give us all that they have to offer. And often that is something that the organization can reduce. So your background is in HR, isn't it? And you run a HR company, is that right? That is correct. I am an HR consultant and I support primarily customer service managers in contact centers who are struggling with high customer escalations, customer complaints, employee disengagement, quiet quitting. So I help organizations, contact centers specifically, to reduce or minimize those occurrences and their impact. So this is interesting. Thank you for sharing around, you know, call centers because it's hard to work in a call center. It's noisy, it's fast -paced, depending on the organization, the customers could be very, very unhappy or very, very demanding. How do leaders in that environment actually manage to keep their employees engaged so they don't quite quit? Well, there are several things that you can do fairly easily. One is to engage with your team and get to know them, get to know their plans, their personal development wishes, help them with that when you find out what it is that they'd like to do, maybe direct them to some training or direct them to an opportunity. You can also help your employees understand where they impact the business. Customer service representatives, if not correctly guided, will tend to think that, hey, I just answer phones and place orders, you know, that's really all I do. But if you help them understand how important they are to the organization and the success of the organizational goals, that tends to make them feel a little more a part of things. I happen to be one who optimistically believes that most people want to do a good job. I don't really feel that people get up in the morning, fight the traffic or whatever, get to work to sloppily present themselves. I think most people want to do a good job. So if you help your employees understand what that is, what that looks like, show them what that looks like and let them know how important they are to the business, that really helps. But in some respects, it needs to be more than that because it can just sound like words. How does an employee actually believe that? How do you get them to believe that to be true? Well, there's several different ways. Of course, there's recognition. You know, there's recognition. There's also when you have your performance reviews, how often that is. I personally believe that once a year is not enough. Some organizations only do that once a year. I think you should have some sort of review with your employees maybe every 60 days to let them know where they are and how they're performing and how you as a leader can help them do better. I think that we need to give our employees a sense of wellbeing. I talk a lot about psychological safety, autonomy, and flexibility to give them the ability to manage and do their jobs. We hired them. Hopefully, you had a vetting process, but we hired them. We trained them. So let them do their job, the job that we hired them to do. So those are just some of the things that I think we can do to help employees feel more a part of. Thank you. What makes the challenge harder for call centers compared to other organizations? Well, employees and call centers. I'm speaking from experience here. I was a customer service representative in a very large call center for a very large Fortune 500 company. I also was a manager in that call center. I managed teams, coaching, and directing. I also implemented customer satisfaction initiatives. I designed those and helped implement them into the organization. So we need to give our employees the opportunity to participate wholly. It's difficult for the employees because call centers are often busy, fast -paced. They're usually large, so there's not much opportunity to stand out and make yourself known. Of course, the demanding and irate customers that they face all day, every day. One of the things that leaders can do is help them understand that they're not in this alone, that we're all in this together, and I support you from my position. But employees just tend to sometimes feel they're just another cog in the wheel. Again, that's something we need to get away from and let them know when they resolve a customer complaint or when they cool down an irate customer, the impact that that has for the customer and the organization. I think that's why most call center employees are so, I wouldn't say that they're unhappy, but they're not always content because of the surroundings and the atmosphere. So anything you can do to cool that down, I don't know if it's casual Fridays or donut Wednesdays or filling out Tuesdays or whatever you want to call it, just anything you can do to help soothe that atmosphere for them. I think that helps. When the call center staff are not performing well and have decided to quite quit, then it has a humongous impact on the customers. So if a manager of a call center was not aware of staff quite quitting, what are the signs that you need to look for employees? And that's a very good question. Thank you. You need to, of course, look for employees who have reduced enthusiasm, I guess would be a good word, particularly those who previously were very enthusiastic. When you see employees start to come to work late or consistently leaving early, barring any personal things going on in their lives, spouse illness or child illness or something like that, barring anything like that, when you see reduced energy, that is a sign that as leaders, we need to get in there and find out what's going on. When you see employees who don't seem to care about numbers, metrics, organizational goals, employee goals, that's an indication that quiet quitting is occurring. I have this little phrase, I say quiet quitting is when an employee just does their eight and hit the gate.
"special teams coach" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Eric B enemy has done everything he is supposed to do to secure a head coaching job, says Louis Moore, Professor of history at grand valley state university, who specializes in African American and sports history. He's worked his way up, and he's won. If he was white, he would have a job. There's no question about that. According to one accounting, the enemy has interviewed 17 times with 16 different teams for head coaching positions since the chiefs reached the first of their 5 straight AFC championship games back in 2019. At this point, one reason often cited for his lack of opportunities that read not the enemy calls the place in Kansas City feels particularly hollow. Two former chiefs offensive coordinators Doug Peterson and Matt nagy under Reed were also not regular play callers for most of their tenures. Nor had they won super bowls in Kansas City like the enemy has. But both were hired as head coaches. Naggy by the Chicago Bears and Peterson with the eagles, where he won a Super Bowl. Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh did not call often plays as the special teams coach for the eagles before being hired as ravens head coach in 2008. Nor did Joe judge, another special teams coach, whom the New York Giants hired as head coach in 2020. Harbaugh won a Super Bowl and has held the job for 15 years. Judge was fired after two seasons. Less accomplished coaches, like steichen, are getting jobs before the enemy. Younger white coordinators, it seems, are more likely to be labeled offensive gurus or wunderkinds. Few have granted the enemy that cache. The enemy is going on probably the greatest 5 year offensive stretch in history right now, with the most dynamic quarterback ever, says more. And the chiefs are making a conscious effort to make him out to be the guy. What more do you need to be done? The NFL hasn't come to terms that there could be a black genius. To more, the enemy situation reveals the NFL's institutional struggles with racism. A group of former black NFL head coaches, for example, are suing the league for discrimination. Nearly 70% of NFL players are black, but just three of the league's 32 teams have black head coaches. Mike Tomlin and Pittsburgh, Todd Bowles, and Tampa Bay, and to make orions in Houston. Miami's Mike mcdaniel is biracial. Colin Kaepernick, a black quarterback who led a protest movement against racial injustice back in 2016, has been out of the league since then. Former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback John Gruden was fired after racist, sexist, and homophobic emails he sent were made public. The NFL used race norming in determining payouts were retired players under the league's $1 billion concussion settlement. This testing method assumed black players start with lower cognitive function, making it harder for them to show they suffer from a mental deficit linked to their playing days. After a lawsuit, and an uproar, the NFL agreed to end, race based testing in 2021. And his 34 years as owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones has never hired a black head coach. Todd Boyd, a Professor of race and popular culture at USC, points to a key comment that Jones made in a Washington Post article back in November. That story contained a picture of a teenaged Jones standing in a crowd of white boys, blocking the path of black students, seeking to desegregate an Arkansas high school back in 1957.

"And this is why it gets so upset, right? How many black coaches now hit the music? Now you go in. Wait, wait, wait. Now I had to be there you go. You know, this is what drives me crazy, right? How many black coaches that can make mistakes like these coaches have done? As to keep their jobs. Zero. Never. But nebula, nobody. This is what drives me crazy. You got Josh McDaniels who was a coach of the Broncos. Failed. Got fired. Yep. Went back to New England again, right? Then from New England, guess the job of the coats, sends a fax, doesn't tell sense of facts and I want a job anymore. Goes back to New England again. And you get the job with the Oakland Raiders, after their special teams coach, last year, dragged that squad to playoffs and lost against the Bengals, which almost won that game, and you gave it of him, but Josh McDaniels? And now you're one in four. You know what you get? Meanwhile, you have black head coaches like David culley from lash for the Texans. Got fighting one season because he didn't want to, he didn't want to hire the team's offensive corner that he wanted to keep his boy in there. You have the lovey Smith was just hanging around. But Texans and got the job. Yep, nobody. Byron leverage, interviewed all over the league, got no type of hire. A Brian Flores. Buying floors gets 5 of Miami Dolphins. Had a really record with the Miami Dolphins. You got fired. Gets fired. Because ruiner tank. Egg begin to be off the Kansas City Chiefs office corner can't get me an interview. Nope. He's stuck behind Andy Reid. And Todd Bowles had to be grandfathered in, even though he did a remarkable job during the Bronx, the Buccaneers playoff run with this defense. It's crazy. But these white OCs, these white head coaches are getting opportunities after opportunities. I feel upward. Upward. Yeah. Steve Wilkes has recently got hired for the caliph pen that's because Michael got fired. Now they're gonna be rebuilt a whole new system down there. And he got shot because he had a one year deal for the Cardinals. And the cars have Kingsbury, who can't do any better. You know? Trash. When they really will was out, we had 8 minority head coaches. Right now for the league, with only three. One action no. Four confirmed Rivera. Dude, and now 5 could still wilt. Little boy with that good old boys club, man. That's what it is. Nepotism and favoritism is everything in the NFL. Right? I wish I could beat these white head coaches and fill upward. And that's what gets me so riled up, y'all. And it is why I really have to play not being a Giants fan anymore 'cause he did Brian Flores so dirty. But not really because, you know, he was in the show. But I understand what you're saying. But the Chinese are doing really well, the team is because Brian dabel is a good coach. It shows what coaching can do. Yeah. I agree. I mean, any condition. If you can coach, you can bring people up to the coaching can do it. They went to the UK to play the packers and came back and won the game with blew my mind. None of them were 59 disappointment and I got a freaking you like 27 27 22. Oh my goodness, are you serious? The Chinese went four one now? The fun one. Giants, eagles, cowboys, all four ones. That last and the command is because, you know, who they are. You know what I'm saying? 17, bro shocker. Just sell the team, bro you been talking to pick the person wins. You got a lemon. Just sell the team, bro you suck, the team will not be in better, but you as owner of the team. Another thing that gets you upset because in the NFL, when you're on a losing team and they go through rebuilds, some as a player, you're not kept. Of course not. So when you have, when you have Russell Wilson playing that garbage, you're messing with players money, bro oh yeah. You give him $240 million. So for what? I give a 5 draft picks. Full of that? Dude, mister a limited. That's right. I don't hear that. Listen, man, that Russell Wilson prayer though, man. Can't wait to see her for this one. I'm not putting it on Sierra Brooke. Environment. Do me wrong, plane? From sea level to play like a button in an area. Super different. But you know, you got to get used to just like for me, like I said, been like, dude, you might have to start taking out loud packed up. Like I said, y'all, I'm watching these games. I watch these head coaches play these pages four down, gambles, I'm like, bro, what are you doing? Just get the points. I'm just gonna play a safe double safe. If you're cooking and you know you got, you got it on there. Go ahead. Go for it. Yeah, but don't play, don't play dumb. I watched the lines of pet and the patriot game, Bill Belichick, put it on him. So he offered them, bro so what do you think of what happened with black plate though? You get fired. The fact that my public is still a coach and Pittsburgh because he does what he's doing. He's a hell of a coach. He gets, he gets every single on a talent. Every week. At his team. He's been there. I mean, he's been there. About 12, 15 years. And all years. They've had a losing season. Winnie seasons. Never lose the season. I think the only one under 500, but never losing season. And yet somehow, some way, the people on paper ones got fired. Some, not all. Even when he wins to the one on fire, 'cause they're stupid. Be careful what you wish for. I'll tell you right now. People will give up their first borns to have that coach for their team. Because you can coach. I know the cowboys win. See what happens. Now with dabble straight right now for me. Well, 'cause to me. Nah, nah. The jets are three and two right now. They're playing pretty well. Yeah, yeah, the jets. The jets play hard. Commanders. And I like Ronald river, but it just feel like it's not a right place for him to be there. I don't know if she just don't think too. So Ron Rivera said on interview that Sarah told me about sports, it just I was triggered early about the game. Said in an interview that what has been, I'm paraphrasing right here with the interviewer said to Barbara. What has been your Achilles heel, why you guys can't be successful? And he said, one word, one word only said quarterback. There you go. There's a quarterback Jimin league. Who's the court right now? Carson Wentz. So I'm looking at I'm like,

"Are another team like that. A team. And I think the ravens were like that until they passed the point and no return with injuries, but these teams that can win these ugly games where you're like, wow, how did that happen? How do you win a game when Stafford makes the three throws that he made? You usually that's a loss every time. And they pulled it out. I was impressed. I want to put them in there. We have colts, up to -7 over the Raiders, but we can get a little ambitious with the money line. So wait, real quick on cam Akers. Everyone's fantasy championships. It's Thursday. Everyone's like, should I start cam Aker? Please don't. That's a playoff move. Advise against. Yeah. Colts raiders, so the Raiders, I called them the Michael Myers of this season, where we've thought we killed them off three times and we just haven't been able to do it yet. And they're certain types of games, they've been frisky underdogs. Where you kind of know it as it's happening, and then there's other games where you're like, the two chiefs games specifically where you're like, wow, this team blows. Yeah. I like this cold spot. I like that it's a must win game. It seems like we'll have once back in time because they changed the COVID rules. And it feels like the colts can run on them now. Should we be afraid of the Raiders in this game? How are you feeling about colts raiders, colts -7, but just the colts to win if we had the colts money line? Have you been watching hard knocks at all or no? I have not. I'm not saying to go binge it now, but you might want to pick the call to win the Super Bowl watching hard knocks. Like that is how much you love Frank Reich and this coaching staff. They're just dealing with shit from all over. No Quentin Nelson, his response is like, all right, that's fine. We got a really good offensive line. Let's go. They're special teams coach. Bubba ventrone, who is with the Patriots for years on their staff, is like one of these high energy, like nothing can stop us. We can overcome. They didn't have Quentin Nelson, Ryan Kelly, Darius Leonard, or anybody on that offensive line on Saturday, and it was like, it wasn't like, oh, we can overcome it was more just like no big deal. Let's go and let's do our thing and then went and you guys hit it. You and Sal were great on it and I respect you guys giving him credit when he had to make the throw. That was as good a throw as anyone has thrown in the NFL this season and it's like, gosh, if Taylor can still run for a hundred yards with four offensive lineman down and Wentz just has to make one or two throws, this might be the team that finds a way to win no matter what. And I look at this squad what they've been through. They're getting back Nelson. They're getting back Leonard. They're getting back a lot of guys. I don't know if wence plays on Sunday. I've got friends who have been the shit kicked out of them from COVID. And we're just saying, all right, well, there's new rules. 5 days, he'll be 5 days after being unvaccinated with COVID. I'm not sure if he's gonna be able to go Sunday. We'll check in on how he's feeling. Technically he can be out there. But that just is like the story of their season. And I would not bet against them in this game. Not the way. So does that. Does the Wednesday make you want to stay away from this? Are you the way? No, I'm fine. I don't care if it's when 50% or Sam ellinger. I feel like they'll find a way to win. Here's just a quick look for the listeners at the Raiders. The Raiders are three and 5 in their last 8 games. The three wins were the overtime Thanksgiving game against Dallas, which was the worst officiated game. Not only the year, but maybe over the last three years, you have the two point win over Cleveland on the Monday, which was the bizarre COVID game, which they almost lost that one anyway. And then you have last Sunday, which would be better. We took them. We took them and it was more about against drew luck who was this terrible as advertised. And the Fangio drew a combo, which they ran like they ran 40 plays total, which was close to an NFL record of minimum plays. So those are their three wins. There are 5 losses. Lost at the Giants by 7. Lost to the chiefs by 27, lost in the Bengals by 19 lost to Washington by two. Lost to the chiefs by 39. I don't think the Raiders are good. No Waller lost rugs forever. Offensively, it's a lot of Renfro and some Jacobs and then car depending on the quarter. Pretty good pass rush, a couple good guys on the front line. I like that Crosby. Yeah, I like Crosby's Crosby jumps out every time you watch, but it's cool. It just feels like the colts if they're really going to be. That colts also need the game. Yes. It's not like the coasts can be like, ah, yeah, it's sort of this out. It's like a must win for the country. Forget the division. Like, wild card wise. Both teams need it. I mean, the Raiders, I think I could be wrong with the Raiders win out and they've got to win the last two games. I think they make the playoffs. It's a very strange season. It feels like it's been 18 months. It's just been 18 weeks. But I think Colton at home, that place rocking. Nelson back. Leonard back. Sorry. I got to go cults. So we'll have the colts. We're going to team with the rams just on the ravens quick. The ravens are three and 6 in their last 9. They're -48 in those games. They've fallen in 19th and DVA. What's interesting is they be like, well, Lamar's been out. It's not Lamar. It's the defense. They're 28th in DVA defense. The rams are fourth overall. There's 7 6 and 5 in the three categories. And we're going to put the ribs and the colts together. Here's my question for you. Yeah. Rams calls moneyline parley, just they both have to win even money. Plus 100. All right. Or we.

"On Thursday. It's noon right now. PT because we wanted to get the chiefs chargers game into this. And the reason is because the COVID stops just gone bonkers and basketball and in football. And our picks on a Thursday, not knowing who's playing and not knowing who's going to get scratched. It seems like Thursday's the only game. I feel great about it. Is the league in a complete panic right now? What's going on? No, I mean, they're hell bent on getting these games in, but I'll tell you some of the teams are in a complete panic. And you look at what's happening with Washington and with Los Angeles and with Cleveland, who has to play on Saturday, and now Chicago, if you saw it as we're going to record in this, they don't have a head coach offensive coordinator defensive coordinator or special teams coach. The head coach actually Maggie's fine, but like, I don't know, the rams, I don't know if the rams can feel the team right now. But the NFL says we're playing these games. And the unfortunate thing about it is that if this was like week three or week four, you could say, well, there's some wiggle room. Kit really rescheduled these games. Like, we're here at the end of the season and the playoffs are not changing. So, I don't know, man. This is something else. Yeah, my thought was that we would just go big on chiefs chargers and then sprinkle some on the rest. But I don't want to actually put big money on any of these games such as money. I don't know, it's going to play. What if we take the paths and all of sudden they lose their entire secondary on Friday? It's just such a weird times. And you know, the way most of these everybody just about, I would say is vaccinated, probably in the league, or at least most of them. So it's not, it doesn't feel like anything's life threatening here, but at the same time nobody understands how fast can you spread it? Is this the flu? Is it where she does? Here's the problem. They all had a leak meeting, all the owners, all the presidents and all the health officials in Irving, Texas this week. And a lot of people were like, all right, we understand that like you're being safe here, but if you're testing every single day and these guys are asymptomatic and they're vaccinated and they don't feel sick, like can we change these rules? And I think the NFL would love to and they might. The NFL Players Association, the union is hell bent on as of now. Let's stay with the daily testing and let's do what's best for these players and it's a collectively bargained policy. So it's not as easy as that. I'm going to be really interested to see how it plays out because these rules might change. We need the union and need the players to buy in. Crazy times. And we're heading toward the playoffs. That's the other piece of this. And who knows how that's I wonder would they actually postpone a game? What would need to happen? Let's say one of these teams, the browns, Washington, one of these teams passes the point of no return, and they can't feel the football team. They have the two week window between the championship games and the Super Bowl. So would they consider nudging everything back a week? I don't know. I think they're going to have to start thinking that way. Going to have to look at everything and the players union has to cooperate with it. I'll say that there was some heated discussions this week at the league meetings. And I know there are a lot of representatives from teams saying, hey, we need to change these. This is not the life or death thing we have vaccines and as calluses it sounds like we've played 15 weeks. Let's not throw the season away because of some rules that we think might be changing. But who knows the NFL's being rather be safe than sorry but gosh, you look at a team like tonight, the Chargers don't have rashawn slater. He's the best left tackle in football the last few weeks. He's their best player on their offensive line this season. And now you got Frank Clark and whoever else because of this. He can't play in Sean slater, most likely feels fine. Right. Weird times, Drake's. I know. Not as weird for us because we just every week we have bad luck and we lose games. We had tough beats on the browns and all that stuff last week. But as I'm looking ahead at week 15, it's hard not to see the shadow of the one and only urban Meyer. Over one of the games where the Jaguars are 5 point favorites against the Texans. The line moved after he got fired because I think people were like, oh, they're gonna try. Empty your urban Meyer notebook. What are the three craziest things you heard about this this week? Well, it was coming to a head. And Tom Pelosi from the NFL network did a really fine job chronicling it with that article on Saturday. And I think one of the things that stood out most to a lot of people said, no one from Jacksonville at all was like, no wait a second. That's not true. Like not one person came out and was like, no, he didn't get into a fiery argument with Marvin Jones or no, he didn't bench James Robinson and Trevor Lawrence begged him to come back in. There was no one coming to his side. So I could tell you that shot con the owner did a bit of a fact finding mission this week was speaking to a lot of people within the building. And then once you got that Josh Lambo story on the record and no one came out and was outraged by that story, I think it expedited. But the story that what I heard as of Wednesday was like, they got the Texans this week. They got the jets next week. Let's give it those two weeks and let's reassess. And then once the Lambeau article came out, I think it really expedited things. But at the league meetings, I could tell you that it was a hot topic of conversation and I feel like shot con saw the writing on the wall and said, let's rip the band aid off. Bill, it's the first time we've ever in the history of the NFL seen a first year coach fired before the end of the season. We've seen petrino leave. We've seen coaches get fired after one year. Never through this. Just through 13 games. It's pretty wild. I think it might be the new go to reference. For me, it was always spurrier in that crazy Washington year he had where he's like, it's working 8 hours a day. It's like, oh, good luck. Good luck with that strategy. And the NFL, but there's been some good ones. You mentioned Saban lasted a couple of years. This one went the worst. All the signs were there, all spring all summer. And it makes you wonder, like, why would teams ever do this again? Yeah..

That sometimes don't throw like we were talking to somebody about it today. Paid manning didn't always have the like the prettiest spiral it wasn't always the tightest spiral socially later in his career. But he got it there. So i mean i can get what he's where he's coming from there. But it's just an odd thing because in this day and age of quarterbacks and the pressure that quarterback has the competition. It's a strange things to say. That don't have to have a pretty football. They just got they got to win. we'll see. Hey i like running quarterbacks. They're fun they're fun to watch.

Behind you, but you know, they perform separately. And then they did The thing where Dylan fronted Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. That was a short Alpine valley late eighties that was right, probably with Petty was at its peak and Dylan was always, you know, sort of. At his peak. That was a great show it I think that was the one where I was stuck in the park in the mud, the parking lot with just the mud field at Alpine Valley of vitamin The Who might have been the stones. I saw a bunch of shows it Alpine valley in there, but there was one of them that I didn't get out of the parking lot until 3 30 because everybody just spinning their wheels of the But there was no clear way to go out and everyone just angling out and you couldn't get any traction because you were always it was wall to wall vehicles. We're in front of you. Oh, that's the other thing that the pot at Alpine Valley was just remember. That was the era in which nobody did anything about it. If you smoke pot and You know, there were no seats. There were a few 1000 seats in the front, but I didn't have enough buddy they have. Those were just just sat on the side of the hill. Was back in the euro, which people just look the other. There was incredible number of Not rape but sexual assaults going on guys who just grab women up and nobody ever said anything about it. I mean, you look at all the things that happened back in the day. The people now are appalled by Ed. Shake my head that I lived through that period and some of the people that are now claiming to be appalled, or people who probably engaged in the behavior during the time that it was going on. And anybody who would have objected while you're approved. So the prudishness of back in the day has become Be respecting the rights of others today, and it's again liberals that just changed their stance on these things. For As I said, the selfish motivation of what it is the trips there trigger. We're going to continue on this line of thought that I've been working on after Wait. Go through the news. I'm gonna give you the cold, hard cash contest texted word. Where did you come up with that Jim Leonard? Rumor that you were feeding to me yesterday. What's in the journal today? Because I I I hear everybody say the Gray is going to be the new coordinator. I don't know. See you read all these What? Yeah, but everybody says that it's a foregone conclusion that this is who the floor once but part Well, part of it is okay, well, because part of it is what one I read a story where somebody said that it's a 90% certainty The gray is going to get it in. The reason that the Ford got rid of him is, you know that he wanted greater be the coordinator anyway. He hired him in the off season to coach the defensive backs, and it was just a matter of time before he pulled the plug. That's what you know that's one of those stories were some insider quotes inside sources who even knows what's correct. Just have a hard time thinking. Packers would hire a coordinator who's never coached in the NFL. I mean, it's one thing position, coach. Go over. I have a hard time imagining that they would You would. On the other hand, if it's I just have a problem with this business of taking your buddy who was an assistant and making him a coordinator. I mean, we've had so many head coaches that have made that mistake. Over the years that it's a common thing with any coaches to just circle the wagons to give your buddies all of these friends and It never works out. It just it doesn't work out. In fact, I think you certainly don't want to have a staff or nobody gets along with one another in the all resent the head coach, but a little bit of I just think in general, it's not a good thing for the boss to be friends of all of this sub managers. Because you end up not being able to be diet demanding you not being able to Pushed the envelope body, but we'll see what they do. So who do you think it's gonna be a letter that's going to get I don't know. I only know what I read it. I just would be right up. It'd be the same thing they did with the special teams Coach is too Find a coordinator rather than do any kind of an upgrade. And this is the problem I have with always fans who say fire this guy fired. This guy went my answer. Always this Well, who do you want to hire? Because if you don't upgrade, then don't fire the person and not you upgrade. That's fine. I mean, nobody's job should be if W Why s and could find somebody better than May. You know, one of my grounds to claim that they shouldn't get rid of me and put the guy that's better than be out here. Good luck finding that guy. What you think it would be easy for them to find somebody better than me to slide in here. Yeah, well, because you know the freeway yet that the one that they come in would do the same thing The floor is going to do they get rid of they get rid of you and bring in their own crowd. E Cold, hard cash contest texted word for the four o'clock hour is what do you bringing me here? This thing with Jim Leonard. You know what the really great You don't think that's a good move, do you? I just can't think of a precedent for it. I just don't can't think of a precedent for going straight to could remember the coordinators. That's not what I mean. Everybody says the strength of Jim Leonard it Wisconsin. Is that his hands on and working with players and developing them. Actually, I the reason I'm not critical of Patton. See, I think that people who get into coaching are way too big.

"Whatever his name is. I forget. I said, Get on John Middlecoff from the three of our podcast tonight I get the feeling there's gonna be a major trade tonight. So we go right to it. John. What was your first thoughts when you heard About about the big trade between the Lions and the Rams. Anger because I don't like cool stories to break on Saturday night, but good for you guys. Uh, second was just you'll probably like everyone else. Wow. You know, didn't Didn't see that coming even though It was clear the Rams did not like God, but they've been telling you everything, but they didn't have any pics. It was hard to see them having a match with the lion. But maybe they were the only team that offered two first round picks. I have reading some tweets from NFL insiders. Happened. Wanted to play for MCD A and the Lions wanted to do right by him. Uh, you know, we don't have all the information. But what a win for Stafford. What an upgrade for the Rams. They're kind of like the Lakers of the NFL. They just don't care about first round draft picks. And that was gonna be my first question to the NFL. I like that. Don't encourage Ernie Johnson. What? What is the potential now of this Ram's off and Sean McVeigh took the world by storm but obviously was limited A little bit. By Jared Goff the last two years. What is the potential for this offense with a guy with the natural skills of Matthew Stafford? Yeah. I mean, I say hi. I mean, we know how good their defense is and their offense weapons. You know, Robert was in Cooper Copper. Excellent players can makers the rookie from Florida State was awesome This year, I think You really came on the second half of the season and the playoffs. Stafford's just a much more talented player than Jared Goff. And you know those first two years when God wasn't playing terribly that their offense was really good when girlie was humming. In the last couple years, and just you know, they were still 1 19 games last year, years with God not playing well, so The expectations are really high, but it's not like Stafford's coming to a team now. That hasn't been winning. Now they haven't been winning. I think the way that Nick they wants to win, and that's played better on offense. But the results have been good. So I'd say anything less than probably. You know an NFC championship berth next year would be a pretty big disappointment and they were in the second round of the playoffs this year. So It's like they were productive with the quarterback again. They could not stand. Jared Goff. I mean, they paid a lot to just get him out of the building as much of it to get Matt Stafford You know what I said that I'm betting on them. The windows Super Bowl might my part of theirs. Rip it out. Be gone. You did that. You go to the Super Bowl. No. You said you're picking them to win the Super Bowl. Definitively. Are you crazy? Obviously, he doesn't know the big upgrade. Look, I know they overpaid but sometimes you've got the over pay when quarterback like that comes up. What do you tell everybody when they say Well, Stafford has no playoff victories. Cough has three or Stafford, you know, is Aidan 50 whatever 50 Five against top teams or this, that the other How do you answer? Because he played on a bad team. You know what I mean? Not. I mean, the worst. The worst organization in the NFC. You know, I mean, for my entire life, and I'm in my mid thirties, so I mean, they're just a joke organization. One thing I would say is like if the Rams had Stafford these last two years have good. Their defense is especially this year. They would have been right there with the Packers and the Bucks is like You know, 13 14 win team. Yeah, I mean, they want 10 with God playing pretty crappy Now to me next year, there's one big question mark. They didn't lose their defensive coordinator to the Chargers, and their defense was excellent now. Defense probably won't be as good but they're often should be dramatically better, and the Packers are losing some guys. Mean braze be 60 years old next year. I'd say the Rams on paper today are right in the mix to be, you know, Best team in the NFC. Yep, I was gonna say John, let's flip sides to the Lions portion of this and, you know Dan Campbell lot of popping circumstance coming out of that press conference, not even necessarily just the Jared Goff element. But you just said it worst franchise in the NFC and most of our lives. Do you believe that Dan Campbell really is the guy that's going to change this culture? Whether it involves Jared golfer not Well, I think what they're going to try to do is copy what the dolphins did with Bryant Florists. And kind of bottom out and they're gonna use Jared Goff to kind of throw to the wolves. They're okay with being terrible this year. So then, you know, I don't think they'll take a quarterback in this draft. And you just stink and you accumulate a good pick yourself and you got that extra first rounder and then you figure it out the following year, when basically, Jared got just turns into like a one year contract. So They wanted a guy like Dan Campbell, because ultimately The first couple years, maybe three years like oxygen, 21, they're gonna be terrible. And then the next couple years. It's gonna be a huge building, you know, process that Exodus nose guy isn't gonna matter like they need more of a leader. So I understand whether you like them or like him, but eventually, if they do hit on all these pics You don't like 2023? That would be my question is, is Campbell dynamic enough as some offensive mind, as you know, Can you get the right coach is they have a pretty good staff. I worked with Duce Staley in Philadelphia. He's easily one of the best position coach in the league. Anthony Lynn had options to be an offensive coordinator. They fit the special teams coach from the Eagles is viewed. He's been with the highest paid special teams coach in the league last couple years, so I think the lines were just taking a big picture of you, which let's face. It doesn't happen that often the NFL because it's so easy to kind of win or at least convince yourself you could win, But the line's been doing that. 12 years, 12 years with Stafford has really worked. Yeah, yeah, By the way, when when Nick Cassara says we're not going to trade the Shawn Watson Wait a minute. We can get what now? Well, maybe I spoke too quickly. How much could you get for the shot once, and maybe I spoke a little too quickly here If you're gonna give me 345 1st round picks Yeah. I mean, I've been saying forever that the Ramseys Mac And Jamal. Adam's All Got two ones and a two. Yeah, I guess Comeback technically, didn't they? Flip flop?.

That way mike. That's a huge point. You just made and i. I can guarantee you that most of our viewers and listeners. Heaven never heard that perspective. I actually didn't know that. I never looked at it like that. The the next person in needs to be a guy that the players hear from and are more comfortable with on an every day basis. So you know ron when you when you look at special teams coaches. It's a very different group than regular position. Coaches are isolated. A little bit. They're not including some of things but yeah the really good ones are terrific motivators because they have the whole team there and there are a few out there in really should be head coaches but they have a great opportunity to talk to you guys on a daily basis to a good job and and no chuck does that in a little. The transition will be less painful probably. Yeah yeah now. that's right. that's a great point. Why thank you for bringing that up so You you talked about the ravens in tennessee. Physicality that's going to be a physical game and remember now. This is also the game of a few weeks back where there was some issues with one team stepping on the other team's logo right Harbaugh took exception to the titans players. Doing whatever they were doing pre-game to the logo and the two coaches had words. So now here we go and this one is in tennessee. So not only is there. Is there a run game situation. Both teams will run the ball. Very well include quarterback in jackson for the ravens. And obviously you have the leading rusher in the nfl. A derrick henry for the titans but this is going to be okay. Strap up your chin. Strap in your helmet. Put aaron net helmet. make sure. everything's okay because this one is going to be for the big boys only someone's gonna get punched in the mouth the first play in the last player. This one i think is the best game in this We can a matchup net. You wanna watch because it like you said is can be a heavyweight bout. Jackson perhaps will be the difference You know what. You're going to get in running game out of derrick henry. You know that's gonna be healed..

"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?.

Now I could be wrong and I don't think he's officially said that is one year left on his deal. So does Joe else. And It would surprise me. In the current Way this organization is constructed. It would surprise me. If John decided state Now maybe you hire the new GM John steps away from the day to day grind. Hey, get this thing turned around the new GM does. This job didn't want a three year extension to do what he's doing next year, which is basically sort of sitting back and watching an offering opinions and that's Or maybe maybe he wants to do that a little bit longer. Who knows? Tector said. What about bringing in Cam Mini Cam Newton or Matt Ryan. I say no way on cam that, Ryan. I would absolutely well way. I think Matt Ryan would be interesting choice. I will see 30. Is about 32 as well. E think he's a little bit older. I think he's a little bit older. Yeah, he's 35 0. Yeah, well, that would be Stepford at 32. I think that's about that's about as old as I would go. 35 met Ryan still a really good quarterback in the league, but There's really no no real future there other than a year? Yeah. We'll wrap up this hour 303 Where did it go? We refresh three or 3917. If Vic is reporting to Elway, it seems unlikely the GM can fire the coach. Did I miss something? Thanks, Tim. Um Again. I believe the scenario would go like this. You're interviewing. For the GM's job. You will be asked at that point. Um, So what do you think about moving forward with Vic Fangio? You'll be asked. What do you think about moving forward with Drew lock, you'll be asked all sorts of questions like that. And if what we're told and led to believe is true. The GM is gonna have absolute Final decision making on everything connected with football. Now, maybe Maybe the GM comes in and agrees. He's gonna work with Vic this year and see how ghost maybe so. I think that's likely. But I don't think you can hire GM and tell the GM Hey, by the way before you sign this You're married to Vic Fangio for the next three years. And you're also married to drew lock. For his contract. I just don't think you can. I don't. I think there would be people that would be great at the job. That would say, you know, I just can't take the job. I agree. So I mean, you have to you can say, Hey, here's what we'd like to do. Here's what we we think would be the smart thing to do. But ultimately if you're hiring this guy Hiring this person you've got to let him have total decision making, and that's what they said they're going to do so last call this our Stephen Pueblo on Kaylie NewsRadio. Hi, Steve. How you doing? I'll make a real quick because I know you're up against the break. First of all, in any organization, you're gonna have a comfort zone. And my concern whether it's a football organization to the automobile companies. Is that that how far out of your comfort zone and you're gonna go if I would see Like all of a sudden the Shanahan being interviewed for that position, or Kubiak, Okay, I have a hard time saying no to it, but just like Grant my we're talking about. He came up with the name. That status to shin that took over the Cleveland Browns. No, it's not conclusive yet what she was able to do, but he did turn the Browns into a competitive team and not a quarterback factory. And that was definitely ah, a lot different than maybe going out and getting, uh, you know, two guys that know what they're doing, like an Ozzie Newsome Mark or Dave Logan. And bring in there with him. And that's why Sam, I think you have to look at the comfort zone. And how far are you willing to go? And can they go that far? And I think it's a coin toss. And I think it's really important that you look at those particular issues of where do you want to go? What do you want to do? And how do you want to do it? Which I'm sure that they're doing? But I think You know, Like I said, the Browns aren't complete yet, but it's that they want to Super Bowl by using that procedure that their general manager did. Then I'm all in for it. You talking about Andrew Beria? Believe, Steve. Thanks for the call. Um, yeah, And they also hired the right head coach. Evidently. I mean, Kevin Stefanski, who by the way, as we reported earlier. Uh, just tested positive for covert 19. So it might prefer who was here is a special teams coach. He's gonna be the acting head coach for the Browns in their playoff game this weekend in Pittsburgh. That's not eggnog. Produce good thing for you. Browns fans. Yeah, and again. I think John Elway with a text to reminding us, John said. The vic is off the table next year. So Vic Vic is gonna be back. But I've got to think that depending on who that is, I mean, next year will decide whether Vick continues as the head coach. You're not going to bring a GM on the job and say You have to honor this contract for the next three years, and that contract for the next three just doesn't work that way. You say whatever you want to about anybody's on the table or not him and I'm sure that John would like victim not, you know, his removal, not be on the table, and quite quite possibly, That's the case. Um And I like that. I think Vic's done enough. I want to see what he can do next year. But you're not gonna hamstring a new GM and tell them by the way you're keeping these various contracts. Cause otherwise. You're not going to get a guy that is any good at what he does. 10 56 our time on cable news radio. Hey, what's happened? Big Gala Judge.

Both of these teams has found their pass rush and they're getting these quarterbacks offer their mark That last third down pressure that came from the Iowa State Cyclones brought pressure right up the heart of the defense. I think it was a shame young who came from his safety position when we talk about this John Haycock 335 defense. You've got three down linemen and then you can use any combination. Of linebackers and corner backs and safeties and nickel backs at any different angle, And it is very, very challenging for an offense to identify who's a part of your box. Who's in the protection? Who were the offensive lineman going to protect? Well, if you identify one of those linebackers or nickel backs as somebody that you're going to predict, but he's in the coverage. Then you're wasted that offensive lineman and another Russia from another spot If you misidentify can get there, and that's where I see Myung came right through the middle of that Oregon offensive line, forcing Anthony Brown to throw that ball short. Of the first down conversion.

I think with us in our latest conversation, and it's not really that big deal. I don't know exactly how it works Great. He knows exactly how this thing works, and he's tuning it up well in Iowa state. Well, you can you want to have three safeties and then any combination of people coming from different points. It really, really stresses, especially at the collegiate level. It stresses the abilities of these offensive lines in these quarterbacks that have so many things to process. To identify. Okay, Who's my hot man? Not only am I thinking about the route combination of all right if this safety's here that I'm throwing to this side of the field effect cornerback is dropping here. That means I'm getting to my check down. It's The task of a quarterback is just so unbelievably hard. It's so hard so many apples so much information to pass to process and so when you add The complexion of the complexity of blitzing linebackers and safety and identifying who's hot and who have to read off of it is really, really a tough task for quarterbacks to execute.

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
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.

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.

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
