"I mean, I just tell you this, right? I don't know if frock purdy's gonna be like a long-term starter in the NFL. What I do know is the people in that building have a lot of confidence in them. And talking to Trent Williams, who's a future Hall of Fame left tackle after that game on Sunday, the toughness purdy showed and fighting through everything. The way that he was able to operate in NFL offense, the background he had coming from a place like Iowa state and taking it to a level at that program hadn't been to before and running a pro offense there Trent said like going back to like the summer he could see the kid could be a starting quarterback and one of the things that sort of came up and this was Jimmy gets hurt and I'm just kind of going back and forth with a few niners guys like, hey, you know that sucks. You guys are down to your third quarterback. You got such a talent roster, you know? Like you go back and forth people that split that sort of stuff when major injuries happen and what I got back uniformly from the San Francisco people was don't sleep on broad party. Like over and over and over again. So again, look, I don't know if he's going to be a long-term starting quarterback in the NFL, but I can say there's a lot of confidence in that building where they don't think that the drop off from Garoppolo to purdy is going to be anywhere near what the general public thinks. Well, we're seeing that already, aren't we? We're already seeing that. When I'm in the booth with Kurt Warner, middle game of the Saturday triple header on NFL network, browns, ravens, which quarterback for the ravens in my column the game and describing the action of what do you think? I mean, I think it sounds like Tylenol is like trending in the right direction. My guess would be Lamar doesn't go. But I think it'll probably Tyler Huntley and look like this is a huge game for the ravens. They they've lost ground, of course, over the last few weeks the Bengals the Bengals are red hot. And they look like the team that got to the Super Bowl last year. So my guess would be you'll be calling in the Tyler hall as they're starting quarterback. I mean, Anthony Brown or this is a backup or he could get the start too, but your sense is, they're not going to push it with Lamar. They're going to give them one more week. I mean, I just thought, yeah, my sense is the sense I've gotten, this is going to be cautious with him. Obviously, it's a little complicated because of the contract situation. And everything that goes into that, you know? And so yeah, I think that they're going to, I don't think they're going to push Lamar if he's not ready. Here on the rich eisen show. So what is the story do you think going into week 15? Albert? I mean, what is your notebook? What are you hearing about? What is your sense? Hot seats or playoff positioning anything like that. You always have your ear to the ground. Yeah, I mean, like the hot seat like stuff. I would say that, you know, it always feels like when you're in November, it's like, well, you know, there aren't going to be very many openings. And then you get to December and there starts to be talk about this place or that place. And so, you know, obviously Indianapolis and Carolina already have openings. And they're going to run coaching searches, we'll see whether or not they give serious consideration to hold to elevating their interim coaches. Steve wilks has done a really nice job in Carolina and Jeff Saturday. Obviously, the owner loves him there. So we'll see whether or not he feels comfortable elevating him. And then beyond that, I mean, you know, the one thing that's sort of interesting about all of this is you could have a couple of one and done. And then you could have an Arizona and owner eating a lot of contract on the coach in general manager potentially. And I think it's sort of signal to changing dynamic in the NFL, where it used to be that the coach would get like three years of runway and owners wouldn't want to have to write checks for four years after they fire a coach and all that different stuff. I think the new television money is changing the dynamic a little bit. And I think the escalating price of the premier head coach is going to change some of that too. And so like Arizona, you know, Steve keim and cliff kingsburg have 5 years left on their deals. Generally, Arizona isn't a franchise that would spend. On coaches and general managers who aren't working for them anymore, but has that dynamic changed. I think it's possible, you know, Denver and Nathaniel Hackett, Houston, lovey Smith. That would be the second straight year. The Texans go one and done, you know? So I think that's what's sort of interesting about what's going to happen this year is you could see guys that have been on the job for a lot shorter or have a lot of years left in their contract giving fired where, you know, in the past, sometimes those sorts of things that made it prohibitive to get rid of a guy. What about a quarterback changes? I mean, Brady clearly seems to be at the end of his Tampa stay if he wants to stay in it. And then that would present quite an option for anybody that wants to just go all in for one year or two years. You got baker, who you had a fascinating article about how Sean mcvay got him up to speed and just threw him in the deep end. You have no, I have no idea about Stafford's long-term plan. If he's healthy enough or not, I mean, what's your ear to the ground on quarterbacks that might change in the NFL? Yes. So I mean, I think Tom is going to be an interesting one. I don't think he knows whether or not he's going to play in 2023 yet. I think if he does, it probably won't be in Tampa. And I think the two teams to wash their San Francisco and Las Vegas. I think one of the things you probably had a better appreciation for is the way he was coached in New England, how hard he was coached in New England. And how tight the operation was. And so, you know, he's got great respect for Kyle Shanahan and the niners have sort of kept that door open consistently over the last couple of years after they decided not to pursue them in 2020. So I certainly think that that could be possible, depending on how the rest of the 9 are season goes and where they're at on Trey Lance. Vegas has an important decision to make on Derek Carr. In his contract, if he, if he's on the roster, I think it's three days after the Super Bowl, then $40 million in that deal vests and becomes fully guaranteed. So if they're going to move on from him, they have to make that decision in mid February. So we'll know relatively soon on that. And the Raiders obviously with Josh McDaniels there would have the option of not one, but two guys with patriot background and Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo that could be available to them. And then you mentioned the rams and Stafford. I've never gotten a sense that Matthews a guy who's going to hang around into his 40s. I just don't think that that's who he is. He's made his money these guys ring, and he's pretty beat up. Now, do I think he wants to go out like this? No. But I know the arm thing has lingered and now you've got the concussion issue. And again, this is a guy who's just taken a lot of hits. And I mean, one of the tougher guys in the NFL, he's taken a lot of hits and a lot of damage on his body. And he just wonder with him to come to a point where you're like, okay, you know, like I have accomplished what I want to accomplish, it's time to go live the rest of my life.

"Over the last two years and the guys who's just sitting there patiently mining is business waiting for his turn as the guy who gives you the best chance to win and Steve wilks is doing a good job. I feel for those two guys, man. I talked about it last week. I really wish Carolina won this game. Yeah, I'm just kind of caught up in the story there. And I've been on teams where we weren't so good and I just, yeah, I was pulling for those guys. And we're halfway through the season now, Chris. And you could say what you will about, the chiefs on the buy week and the Chargers don't look that great and the rest of the division. It's the chief's division, right? You could sit here and say that pretty much, and the bills you could pretty much say that about the AFC east, but still those coaches go to sleep thinking you never know. The only one coach that rich, people want us to talk about that. You know, they love to tweet at you. I know they do. I still think the bills are the best team in that division. And they already have the win over them to, and I think they're going to beat the jets, certainly if the same jets team that just took on the Bill Belichick patriots, the bills from buffalo are going to take care of business. But that was one whole long wind up for this pitch here that the only coach I think harder knows. He's got a home playoff game coming up in January right now is Mike variable. And the Titans and the Titans once again with Derek Henry punking the Houston Texans. The mcnair's don't own the Texans. Damn straight, it does. So my question for you is, once again, the Titans are like the yeah, but okay, team. What do you think of Tennessee? Tennessee's Tennessee's incredibly hard to kill, man. That's the best compliment I can give a football team. Mike vrable is the man. I just the guy you wish you played for. I like watching him and Ben Jones and tunnel last week. That guy cares. Like I got doesn't just care about his job. He cares about everybody else in that locker room, but he's been a player. I know he's tough. I know he pushes those guys hard. And you can see it because when they get in tough situations when the chips are down, when you start Malik Willis and you find yourself three point underdogs against Houston or whatever it was or like Houston's actually favored by the time kick-off happens, they dig deep, they find a way. It doesn't matter that Malik Willis isn't ready. And as a sidebar, that's funny because in the preseason, everybody who's coming for. No doubt. Tannehill. He's like, you know, it's just not getting over out of our skis. But Derrick Henry's run for like 50 miles against stack boxes since in the last 5 years. I think he had a 118 yards against stack box just said, you know, in the last guy to have so many, I think was him. A year or two ago, and he leads the league against loaded boxes over the last 5 years by a thousand yards or something like that. I mean, the guy is insane. I'm watching that game and I'm just saying like, I'm like, load the box, load the box, and every time, every time Houston would line up defensively, I count. And I was like, hey, they are loading the box. It's just nothing you can do about it. The guy's 6 foot 5. He falls forward for two yards every time and drags two defenders with him. He's awesome. The Titans are really tough to kill. And yeah, the only thing with the Titans are like, they're sitting there in the locker room, you know, we used to re sit in the locker room and get our ankle stayed before games and sit in the hot tub. And it'd be a TV on until like 90 minutes before the game. So they're late game, and they're watching the eagles, right? And they're watching the HA Brown. And I'm kind of wondering what guys are thinking about that move, right? Because I think the cap hits are similar with Woods of him. And you couldn't retain him. And the guy's just such a game changer. He's been a game changer in Kelly. He would have really helped this football team and they could be a contending type football team. And they might be, but you just imagine if they still had AJ Brown. It's just totally different ball game. Do conversations get sparked? Seriously, watching TV, watching other guys like that. Is it actually verbalized? Is it really just like a look that everybody knows what the look means? I think that locker room really really vibes with braves and that whole organization. So I don't think anybody's like, man, we're tricking this thing off. I just think it is kind of a look. I think it's like you look over at the guy next to you is AJ goes up and gets that ball between two steelers defenders yesterday and you're like damn. There's nothing that needs to be said, but you know, he just adds a whole other element. But the Titans are really good. And you look at the ASC picture, like I just mentioned the dolphins. They have the bears, the Texans and somebody else that that's not great over the next three weeks and a by. So they're going to go into December. They have a chance to be 8 and three going to December. And if you're a dolphin sand, you know, you talk about the bills, we talk about we talk about the chiefs with good reason. I think they're in a class above everybody else, but then there's these teams like Titan, dolphins, seems like that who are going to be in a good position, especially looking at the chiefs scheduled next month, come December. This AFC race is going to get interesting. Yeah, Miami's at Chicago home for Cleveland by home for Houston than they're at San Francisco, what a game that's going to be with mcdaniel going against his old team there and these old team going against mcdaniel and then of course next up for Tennessee is at Kansas City on Sunday Night football. The dreaded Andy Reid coming off a buy game. I mean, that's going to be dynamite and week number 9. Who's on your pod this week on green light podcast? Oh man, I think we're going to get Bradley Chubb. The future jet, the future New York jet,

I'm going to listen all four hours because we're waiting for the auburn father to drop.

We don't know if they don't beat Alabama until we see them play the other teams and dominate them like the Miami. How far should they miss it be state?

And then we all take my answer off the air. Yeah, I think anything I say will just be the stating the obvious in terms of the disappointment.

That was the state of the program kickoff yesterday at coamo and yeah you talk about a fraudulent program missouri and by the way when i say that missouri was was a sneaky. Second or third. Pick in the sec east. I'm not exaggerating. A lot of people thought they had a chance to really through. So they have now lost to kentucky Boston college in tennessee. They're scheduled portends disaster. The rest of the way. Because i mean they haven't even seen the good teams yet but you know it is paul with them. And you're right there. It's not going to go well for eli too. You know what it is. It's when you're coach it is you're right. It seems like he's getting along. You're too when you when eli writes a check. His own can't cash. No you are going to be idead in looked at weekend. You're missouri in your. Eli drink went to a cup of coffee is a head coach at appalachian state. You can't do what you did against boston college and mouth off like that and then go and lose to boston college. You can't and to back that up with yest- with saturday against tennessee. Were you better. Come back with a statement after that. I mean if even if you beat tennessee sixty two whatever. Y- calm people down and he's got a pretty good quarterback there but the blacks good player and what's interesting is he hired. He had the shows. You how smart i am. I thought he hired had one of the better. Defensive hires of the year in the off season. He hired steve wilks and that name seems vaguely familiar. He was the defensive coordinator of the carolina panthers when they went to the super bowl in two thousand fifteen and then he got the arizona cardinals head coaching job. Matt i'm sure you remember that. Well maybe not because you've only he was only there for a year but it seemed like a good higher right. Yeah right yeah. I mean on the surface. Yeah those those. Nfl always get people excited. That's a good higher it is it is there were so many like head-scratching outcome just off the main chart of big games. I thought that was one of them. Wanna move to the big ten. Because i don't remember the last time that you could save this. And i firmly hold it to be true that the big ten now the big ten fourteen top. The bottom is the most complete conference because you have iowa. You've got penn state. you have michigan. Who looks really good. You have ohio state. Who started to look like ohio state again. This league now michigan state. I mean this probably is going to be the most fun to watch. Because we think we've got both divisions of the sec figured out oregon goes down to stanford asu pummels ucla. I there's some. There's some stories out west but the big ten as a collection of undefeated teams. That are gonna find themselves in the top ten which says to me. That october is going to be a really fun month in this conference. Madge just for the record. I i'm contractually prohibited from saying good things about the big ten but it is but it's it's the most exciting league in college football right now and there are so many dynamics stories in probably the most interesting is the fact that ohio state very well could be a serious factor and we we. We summarily dismissed him a few weeks ago. But they'll be back. The fact that jim harbaugh finally found a pulse on jim harbaugh's body now. I will not quibble with was hardwood harbaugh's done but but there are a lot of coaches being there. Chess right now about having destroyed wisconsin this year. So let's not get too carried away but but it all starts now and they finally have a marquee murky game this weekend and i think it is going to be a wild ride. You know harbaugh. A discussion with him. Michigan goes to nebraska next week. Seven thirty eastern abc. Here's what it is about michigan. And i think that in my in my college football mind however limited or vast it may be. I have discovered what it is about michigan that i'm finally going to buy right now after week one in october. It's that jim. Harbaugh has shut his mouth. He has been quiet. He has not done his social media stuff. He hasn't gone on spring football vacations with mari smith. He hasn't he hasn't done any of his recruiting mumbo jumbo. He's not making it about him on the sidelines and wearing his game clayton although he may be still wearing this. I don't know the fact that a matter is jim. Harbaugh's just coaching football. They've got really good. Running backs tucson haskins and blake corum. They play defense kate mcnamara serviceable. They lose ronnie bell. Which i thought was going to spell the end for them but in a year. The big ten looks like it's up for grabs. I think this morning to the best team in the league michigan's playing football because their coach stopped making it about the coach right in in other than the annual loss to ohio. State that that is. What both attracted me to jim. Harbaugh and finally The reason i on fronted him because it really became comical every year. It was a different gimmick. And he was talking. He remember he He did that camp down in florida and was talking like he was going to own the south Uprooting and it just finally rub people. You can do that if you at least win. Occasionally but you know the the the ohio state game has been such a disaster for him. But yeah. i'm i hit the reboot every year and you have to be objective about jim harbaugh. And he's done a really good job and actions since he was in san francisco. I don't think but any of us won the super bowl. They probably should have but it might look it. But that's what. It is. Paul when he figured out when he was you know he was playing football with his shirt off at these camps and and doing all of this when he finally figured out like hey i know. I'm jim harbaugh. I'm coming from the nfl. I took a morbid into san francisco. Forty niners franchise took him to three straight. Nfc championship games. I am a michigan man. Cut from the cloth.

"Year and the NFL there's there's pressure, and so I just kind of take a week by week and try to the best best that we can, But it's a team that was put together and went now there's no doubt Arizona Cardinals coach Cliff Kingsbury ahead of Sunday's season opener against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, as Kingsbury enters his third season as head coach, the teams Trying to erase the bad memories of the second half of last season when the team faltered after a really good start and Vince Murata. Half of Bickley in Morada in 98, 7 FM Arizona Sports Station on that station from 6 to 10 joins us Now, Vince, Is it playoffs or bust for Cliff Kingsbury? I think so, Yeah. You know, this team under Cliff Kingsbury is made improvement in two consecutive years. They, you know, low Starting point. They started at three wins. Yeah, he got the job. They went to 58 last year. The optics of that eight. We're not great because you mentioned the second half of the season, so You know, the Cardinals going into this year have the second longest playoff drought in the NFL behind only the New York Jets, And that is not company You want to be keeping. So I do believe that to be the case, yeah, that NFC championship game from a few years ago as a distant memory. It is really I just bought a cardinal sure that I want to be able to wear with pride this year. I'm just saying By the way, Uh, the first question I wanted to ask you is Will the trumpets blare on Sunday and suddenly Oh, my gosh. Larry Fitzgerald's all dressed out. He's coming out on the field. That's not gonna happen. No, I didn't ask. You know, there's a better chance that Jamie wears her Cardinals shirt with pride this season and that actually happening up so I will always wear with pride even more when Larry Fitzgerald is on the field. Yeah, but doing it happen. So what Are your biggest concerns about this team? Is it simply that they're in the NFC West, which is probably the toughest division in football, Or is there any specific area you think they're lacking? Is it the defensive secondary? Or what? Um, the division that they plan is certainly a factor. But there's there's a long list of them. Um, obviously the secondary with Malcolm Butler retiring unexpectedly. Yeah, that deals them a blow they were counting on him. There's a lot of new pieces to plug in, but go back to last year. The concern was Kyler Murray in the second half of the season wasn't 100% health wise, and everything suffered because of it. The Cardinals need to have a better plan for when Kyler Murray is not 100%. Quite honestly, you know, you know if he's out on the field, he needs to be able to show more than he showed in the second half of last season. So those are all high on the list of my concerns. Which team on the schedule this year is going to be the toughest for them. Um, well, the Los Angeles Rams who are on there twice, Uh, since Sean McVeigh has been their head coach, he is absolutely owned the Arizona card that goes back to the tail end of the Bruce Arians era. They swept them with Steve Wilks and Cliff Kingsbury has yet to beat them and four tries. So I'm always gonna answer the Rams on that, But, uh, there's plenty of tough game take your pick, and the Niners are going to be tough. The Seahawks are always tough. Yeah, Yeah, We got it and you play those teams twice. Cleveland Gonna have a good team this year. It's really sounds strange to say out loud. So if you were a betting man, it is legal now. Uh, yeah. Yeah. So would you feel comfortable taking the Cardinals straight up against the Titans on Sunday? Uh, in a word. No, no, no. Okay. Um, Tennessee's Gobet the spread. Uh, maybe Tennessee is a playoff team. Um, they've had an interesting off season. They got hit with covid pretty hard there. Coach Mist sometime. They didn't play really any of their players in the preseason. They've got a little bit more in terms of pedigree, and they've got a guy named Derrick Henry, who is a battering ram at running back is going to be really, really tough for the Cardinals to stop so week. One I like I like the Titans at home. All right. And one more question here for Vince Morada of Bickley Morada on Arizona Sports station, 98 7 F. M, uh, who is going to be the player that you should mention right now? So that people can later on, say, I knew all about that guy that becomes a big breakout player for the Cardinals this year. Do you think you know if if people have been following things, this is not going to be that shocking a name. I'm very excited to see what Ron Dale more does the wide receiver from Purdue. We know the Cardinals wide receivers are led by DeAndre Hopkins, and he's one of the best in the game. But Rondell More is smaller guy really fast, really Athletic. They use some creative ways to get him the football in the preseason games, and I think they're going to continue to feature that he could be a real find in the second round. Well, he had his own cereal like DeAndre Hopkins. Uh, I'm gonna I'm gonna vote No on that one. For now, maybe someday hop box. I was like, Whoa, wait a second. I know what that's a reference to All right. Thanks a lot. Vincent. You bet. Vince Morada of Bickley and Morata on Arizona Sports station. 98 7 FM. It's 5 19. Now let's get just traffic again.

I'm off tomorrow so aaron. It'll be here. Texans are converting seven point. Six million dollars of bradley. Revie's eight point nine seven two million dollar salary into a signing bonus in the trade to the saints texans are expected received more than one draft pick in exchange for roby. And some coin. Yeah i mean. So the texans are basically taking all of his salary and turning into a signing bonus and i would assume that means you're paying him today and then trading them not terrible for the saints. I mean you're giving up multiple draft picks. But they're not paying him. Basically right yeah. They're going to start taking him on and he has a chance to impact. The saints gives you some depth as well right. There's no reason why they went and got the draft picks would imagine somewhere in the midwest fourth. If you're lucky. I think it's a fifth that could turn into a fourth seven seven conditional. Yup all right go ahead all right number five so the other day we talked about. Espn bold predictions and this is what they had for. The texans brandin cooks will gain over one thousand receiving yards. Will this happen. That's their bold. Prediction is bold. He's done it. What four five to four times or so in his career. So i'm like that four five times. Maybe i think it's both considering who the quarterback options all right well. I think it's bold considering. Not even just a quarterback options considering how they're gonna go about giving him the ball down the field. This is a sideway. This is going to be very protect the football. Take care of. Make sure that we're not taking many chances. I think he'll give you some run after the catch. And i don't like many of the options right now because i got to see more. I'm going to say yes but close. I'm going gonna say no gotta get one over a thousand yards don't they. I think be like eight. Eight to nine hundred. Why because they're going to be playing from behind a lot and they're gotta have to throw as long as he doesn't get hurt somewhere between nine fifty and eleven hundred. I'm going to say it's i'm gonna say barely over a thousand asked you with sean. In fifteen games he was eleven fifty hundred yards less than that but a lot of a lot of targets. Because you're going to have to. He's got the extra. Maybe having the extra game matter. Say he comes up short right fair enough. Aren't number tyler. I think he'll come up a little bit short and it's not a knock against him. It's just quarterbacks. I'm not that good moving on number six. Which new hire coach would be most likely fired after just the first year new hire. Yeah so that would be serianni in philly solid new york campbell in detroit colleague over here in houston and i feel like there's three other ones on forgetting won't be colleague because they're going to give that chance to get through the second year choice the philadelphia. Yeah yeah i do too. I don't think dan campbell the energy. Yeh rampant if they're gonna want that they if you asked this question a three year plan. I'd say there's a chance all of them are gone. I would agree. I think any of them are guys that look like they're going to be long term. And here's why philadelphia to that the fan base. Yes and the radio call him. You see what already reverting to yesterday. He's phillies gear up there on the on the damn podium like he's trying to win the fans he put it this way they don't they can see through some of the say phony but some of the ask kissing stuff they can. He's going to have to be really good because that town will not stand for excuses and he didn't start off with his opening press conference the way they feel how i would say. He's the legitimate one to go now he could also be a hero of jalen hurts. Turns into a big time player that roster. I just don't see how they're not the worst team in the division. If one's going to do they wanna pay money and say one game. We know we once season son. Steve wilks that happened there and arizona. It's happened with cam cameron. I believe in miami one year doesn't happen often. But he seems like the one that it could because that's a tough town with passionate fans and they're not the they're no they don't wanna go four and four or four and thirteen but they very well could go for thirteen. They're they don't look to be very good on paper although the division doesn't seem to be very good either simply don't get better equal the football like that's going to be his number one because they were so bad throwing the football last year so bad offensively and he had philip rivers last year in indianapolis as he was assistant. Yeah and philip rivers. Yeah this ain't right now. They don't have philip rivers right so we'll see he'd be the one that i'd say i don't believe the other two unless there. I mean it's so pissed for. But i don't think that's gonna happen. We're going to arizona real quick for number seven if the cardinals finished with a winning record but ended up missing. The playoffs will cliff. Kingsbury be fired. I don't think so. Because i don't think The front office guy. Why am i losing my mind uconn. Yeah steve that's his guy. He ran a guy out after the one year and wilkes. Speaking of what we're talking about. He went out and sought out cliff. Even we cliff wasn't winning. National championships are gonna losing texas tech right and they are all committed to what that quarterback there.

"A losing record last year they were eight and eight. I know some games are close. But it's not like they're extremely disappointing. They actually have to perform this year. But i'm saying just to go. Hey we're on a hoc- 'cause he has play appearance but they've showed improvement leading into the place. I agree with that and then the quarterback got hurt in arizona. The quarterback got hurt here. Here's what i'm gonna say to both of you. Don't think they can win with the system kids not about the division being tough. It's everything you fired. Steve wilks to hire this guy because he didn't do what you thought in one year that you want it done. Now you allow steve kinds of bringing cliff kingsbury that was fired from texas tech because he couldn't get them to the frito lay bowl kingsbury so holds consoles. Did so then you then allow him to tell you. He needed a certain quarterback in kyla murray in the national football league. in order to protect kyla. Murray you gotta build offense align you have to run the football. Something may yet to do. They also went out and got. Jj watt aj. Agree to decide that they're going to bolster up some things to make them better. They drafted kristen kirk from texas. A and they haven't utilized him nearly as well as they should let see. What what the andrei hopkins and green together. They can be an incredible tandem if they can stay on the field but key. What this is what. I sense from you. Okay this i'm gonna play amateur psychologist here. You already know where i think. It's fair the way all the anyone connected to mcvay or reminded mcvay got these jobs. I agree with you. I understand that but now you've got to separate that out from the job. Kingsbury is actually doing. And what. I saw you could. I'm not saying he's doing a perfect job. There aren't better coaches. But from what i saw last year. They were moving in the right direction until cuyler hurt his shoulder and that changed everything. Do you know who who he hurt his shoulder against trying to remember all seattle right defense in seattle that got after him so when you win this division you plan up against these types of defenses. You've gotta protect your quarterback if you drop your dropping him back in having him throw the ball all over the lot. He's going to continue to take a real. Jj that was a lot of quarterbacks chris his his frame doesn't allow for him to take that pounding in that beating in the national football league that prescott got hurt on an ankle injury. J. totally different. So so are you saying k. a. J. key are you saying when they have so much success when tyler murli murray's running like you look at how much value he adds with his legs versus running. He's more much more than when you're running the ball with the backs keep running in and see what you go go rolling. So what are you suggest again. I i understand. you're making sense. In terms of what expose into danger. I agree but that's also what makes him special howard keyshawn johnson head coach or offensive coordinator used kyla murray. I would be more in a west coast system style offense for me more like seattle. Get the ball out quick. Sure officer line. Put him on the perimeter. A lot like they do with russell. Wilson half roles things of that nature. Well he answered the question. I mean since seattle great shakes the offensive line. Either but a lot of times when russ gets hits because he's holding the ball jay. We gotta run. But i know you wanted to say something. I'm no no no. I hold off. We go. We have another three and a half hours. Straight talk wireless. No contract no compromise by the way. How significant is it. That tyrod taylor was named starring. Houston will play news or not news after sportscenter. That's me joke with which we are advanced.

"Uh, Matt LaFleur. Natalie Flores has success And you would say, because Aaron Rodgers doesn't matter, though, to NFC Championship game since he's been a head coach, Cliff Kingsbury zero playoff appearances since he's been a head coach, and they gave him the quarterback they wanted, so I obviously think That deserves to be on the hot seat. When you look at Matt Nagy, he doesn't deserve to be on the hot seat. Because now he gets an opportunity not only to start with a quarterback, he wanted an Andy Dawn. But if he decided to replace Andy Dog to now go with the quarterback, he wanted injustice. And we'll tell you let me J let me make another argument here. I want to hear you respond to this. We don't argue on this shaggy and, oh, there will be arguments key. There will be arguments. If we disagree. We just don't have to look for the argument. Now look. The, um Maggie and peace. To me. That's commendable, because it's eat like the whole problem in sports like in life, Short term incentive motivates behavior, usually over long term objective, right your short term incentive. What's Nagy and Paces short term incentive? They grab Justin Fields, which was smart. I was advocated for that before the draft. Like if you can move up and grab Justin Fields, do it. I even wanted the Giants to take them even though they had Daniel job that they heard that he could be a superstar, right? Now they got him. They got him. Now what's in your best interest as a coach and GM boy play him so you can start winning as soon as possible. To me. They're doing something commendable, which is Let's use Andy Dalton as a tackling dummy while we get this offensive line, situated and then bring in Justin Fields, who's obviously QB one right now, in terms of what they can do on the field. I like that J. I like the fact that that that that a head coach and GM are saying let's put the franchise ahead of the Team. Let's put our long term objective ahead of our short term incentive to me. That's a big thing. I don't know. Like to me. That means Nagy is not on my hot seat right now. Is not on your hot seat, so Couple of things were one with Matt Nagy. I hear what you're saying. But now you're telling me because of one moving moving up in the draft that just washes away everything that we saw last? Nobody has a quarter. I understand. He has a quarterback, and I understand it gives you some time. I mean it. Zach Taylor has a quarterback to coming off an injury. So shouldn't that buy him some time? Even though the organization is messed up, even though they don't want to spend money. They should give him some time with the quarterback. Let him be healthy. All I'm saying going back to clips. Kingsbury is when you look at that division man, That's a hard that's a hard division in football. Tough division. Russell Wilson Hall of Famer. Okay, the 40 Niners team that got to the Super Bowl. It wasn't that long ago. They were right. There had health issues last year. Look at the Rams. Avery Tool. Matthew Stafford, that defense They have sown improvement. It's like they haven't shown improvement. I mean, a year before they had a losing record. Last year, they were eight and eight. I know some games are close, but it's not like you're extremely disappointing of the season. They actually have to perform this year. But I'm saying just to go. Hey, we're in the hot seat because he hasn't had one playoff appearance, but they've showed improvement leading into the place. He I agree with that. And then the quarterback got hurt. In Arizona. The quarterback got hurt. Here's what I'm gonna say to both of you. You don't think they can win with the system, kid? It's not about The division being tough. It's everything you fired Steve Wilks to hire this guy because he didn't do what you thought in one year that you want it done. Now you allowed Steve kinds to bring in Cliff Kingsbury That was fire from Texas Tech because he couldn't get them to the freed Ole Bowl. But that's not clear. Kingsbury's so hold us kind. So then so then. You. Then allow him to tell you he needed a certain quarterback in Kyler Murray. In the National Football League in order to protect Kyler Murray, You've got to build the offensive line. You have to run the football something they've yet to do. They also went out and got J. J. Watt AJ green to decide that they're going to bolster up some things to make them better. They drafted Kristen Kirk from Texas A and M They haven't utilized him nearly As well as they should. Let's see what DeAndre Hopkins and and and green like together They can be an incredible tandem if they can stay on the field, but key what this is what I sense from you. Okay, So I'm going to play amateur psychologist here. You already know, Don't think it's fair, the way all the anyone connected to McVeigh or who reminded him McVeigh got these jobs. I agree with you, I I understand that. But now you've got to separate that out from the job Kingsbury's actually doing and what I saw you could. I'm not saying he's doing a perfect job. There aren't better coaches, but from what I saw last year, they were moving in the right direction until Kyler hurt his shoulder, and that changed everything for their season. Do you know who he hurt his shoulder against? Trying to remember Seattle right? A defense in Seattle that got after him. So when you were in this division and you plan up against these type of defenses, you've got to protect your quarterback. If you drop If you're dropping him back and having him throw the ball all over the lot. He's going to continue to take a pound. That's real. J. J That was a lot of quarterbacks doesn't allow his frame doesn't allow for him to take that pounding. And that beating in the National Football League that Prescott got hurt on an ankle injury. J totally different, So so. So Are you saying jail wanted, but I hear you saying when they have so much success when Kyler Murli Murray's running like you look at how much value he adds with his legs first heat is running back is much more much more than when they're running the ball with the backs. Keep running him, then. And see where you go. Go rolling. So what do you suggest, And you do have hot there again. I guess what happened? I understand you're making sense in terms of what exposes him to danger. I agree, But that's also what makes him special. How would Keyshawn Johnson head coach or offensive coordinator used Kyler Murray? Would he would be more in a West Coast system style offense for me more like Seattle. Get the ball out. Quick shore up the offensive line. Put him on the perimeter. A lot like they do what? Russell Wilson, half rolls things of that nature. All right. Well, he answered the question. Yes, you did. I mean Seattle to have great shakes at the offensive line, either, but a lot of times when Russ gets it, because he's holding the ball J. We got to run, but I know you wanted to say something. No, no, no. Hold off What we have. We got another three half hours ago. We have another 3.5 hours. That was straight Talk wireless. No contract. No compromise. By the way. How significant is it that Tyrod Taylor was named starter in Houston? We'll play hot news or not news after SportsCenter..

Those are some old school waits type of gym. I prefer the old like legitimate metal plates. None of this rubber casing nothing that protects people. There's no handles on the weights you can pinch me potentially sever a finger or at least get blood blister. You know the real the gritty stuff we did you work out in the browns facility and were there players who either were threatened by you or kind of wanted to show you like. Hey brown's reporter like you're not so tough you know what i mean. As the legend goes they used to allow employees to work in workout in the same gym. And then i guess somebody had taken food from the cafeteria and like left it out and made a mess in just left it there so they ended up when the has came in they build a separate employees in that is literally right next to the team's weight room and attached to the field house. So technically no. But i was right next door and i and i did Activity on the indoor field houses field. And they weren't intimidated but they pointed out a lot but they brought it up a lot.

Leanings ultimately i gotta give freddie kitchen some credit because even though he wasn't a very good coach truly disorganized more than anything awesome guy great guy to spend a few hours at a hotel bar on a road trip with to be too. Close that circle. Steve wilks i think is still the answer no way. It was very kitchen after that. Steve was on freddie staff as a dc. Stevie all right anyway so yes. We were last with you on monday. And we said we'd be back thursday. And then i think greg and i separately. Maybe even the same time greg like e. style realize. Oh wait a second wait. a second. The tuesday's cut down day. They changed the schedule a little different.

"Gotta get your state your cities right first of all of the east coast hobby. By as i mean that is such a childish move. The fans are gonna boo you and you know what this is. The difference between the mets and the yankees. Derek jeter comes out and says the plan. Yeah i should be booth hobby. Bias comes out and puts his thumbs down. What are you a child. What are you can i tell you what. Here's the difference. The yankees pull put their big put big boy pants on they get out there and they play and they come home with a division trophy hobby boulez he can play. Give him a participation trophy. 'cause he's begging okay thank you again. Another they who i mean. I thought i heard cut out my ear. So i tried to speak over him Now we're going mets yankees. This isn't fair. This is what happens in the city in fast. What happens when one team does it. The right way and the other team of course they're going to do it. That way fan fans do man as organizations obviously are different right one has trophies the other has couple trophies. It's just different situations. But jake komen bullying thumbs down like we really have in this conversation or have having. This is really a common. No but it's like right key like i said. Yesterday i kind of built differently on this. Like there've been a lot of things that i could swing back at very hard my style. My approach are like all right like just got it out. Get it out for a little bit and when people back over it throughout time. But that's not everybody's approach but that is interpreted differently through fan bases. I recognize that. Let's see if i won't cut off neck. Nixon new jersey. Let's going on neck. Hey guys good morning coming on. I wanna make key. You're good at your job. You do what you do. But i got a beef with you. Only because I grew up in notre dame fan and bills fan so won't get that out the way right off the bat all right but you do gotta duke. So i'm not even mad at you on that. But i'd say about this bias thing. I'm also a mets fan. Listen these guys gotta hit the ball. We gotta get some ws even if we don't win the division or make deep into the playoffs. We got set the table for next year. So if bias starts dole would do then just thumbs down to go away to worry about that. Oh more winning. Go away nick you you think voss on the mets are winning. It goes away for hobby. I don't know that. I don't know about new york city fans for getting stuff like that we will. We like winter. Show us you can win. Show us that. Passion shows that passion it. we'll take take. I don't think hobbies going to be met next year. i like. He's only been there for a cup of coffee since the trade deadline already make mint chicago. I can't deal with this. This is the type of stuff stress me out. Sort of scratch yourself can thumbs. Down's got all this attention failure so ridiculous that you're right let's move on you're getting itchy. I understand let's move. He's on jalen. Zubin is presented by progressive insurance commercial insurance through progressive protects. Your business and your dream choose from over thirty coverage options at progressive commercial dot com daniel jones heading into very critical your plan a year three. Well we're we're going to figure out if this is the guy. This is the franchise quarterback for the giants going forward Given day or does benefit of the doubt. I get worried about how you'll be able to survive the o. Line like i saw last night is the old line i'm going to see in a regular season is going to be a long year for my giants and it's gonna have the same conversation and then dave so we've been asking all morning what. A coach player is tied together and at the top of the list. It feels like it's daniel jones and joe judge right like joe. You heard it there in the open like daniel jones heading into your three this year. Dude we gotta figure out who you are are you gonna make it or you're gonna break it in new york city as the leader of that giants team. I mean we have talked about it this year last year year before every year. It's the line is an issue right in new york. But can you overcome at daniel jones. That is the question. This keyshawn j will exhibit on. Espn radio espn new. Siriusxm channel. eighty and you're smart speakers. Shake ornette keyshawn johnson. Jay williams here with you guys. Would you agree that. It's daniel. Jones and joe judge as to player coach that most tied together new york as terms of a make it or break it season this year. You could entire nfl. Yup i disagree. If we're talking about a make or break season i feel like. That's sean mcvay. Matthew stafford i feel like. That's less. Need in sean. Mcvay that said. Hey look jared goff got it got you to the super bowl. He's not good enough anymore. We want our guy we're going to go out and get matthew stafford and we're going to. He's going to be that. God is going to answer all the calls. I feel like that's a team out of super bowl. Aspirations i don't know who's gonna come out. Nfc east and i want my giants. But i'm looking at dallas me like wow. They're really tool. They have all the offense weapons. Only question is your defense. I'm looking at the rams. That's a super bowl team. That's super will make up team for right now and it's super bowl or bus ramps. Savage got year in his contract. That's the only thing. I feel like with daniel jones. Jones barclay gettleman joe judge. I mean. they're all kind of tied to this guy at this point key. I don't think that it's frazier question. Again give it to me one more time. It clearly understand. What quarterback had coach duo have the most pressure on them together. This season is it the giants. That's the jumping off point here because it feels like. It's not even just the coach the quarterback in new york. It's also got men. it's also saquon barkley. A lot of guys that are depending on these two to get it right this season. I think there's a lot of pressure on daniel jones to do a lot of different things. Get the team over the hump for the new york fan base and a giant fans and what the aspirations are majo- judge inherited danny dimes. Go out west. You talk about together. You talk about came. In the league together is cliff. Kingsbury and kyla murray and other guys. That's exactly who it is. They they are tied together at the hip cliff. Kingsbury is only going to go as far as kyla murray takes him and vice versa. And then you throw in steve kinds. Who's general manager. Who signed off on kyla. Murray and cliff kingsbury after. Drafting josh rosen. Then trading josh rosen. So when you look at the arizona cardinals and you look at what they have at st cliff. Kingsbury has been there. The deal was fired from texas tech then. Took a job at usc as office coordinator. How does that happen. You become the head coach of the arizona cardinals. After steve wilks was fired a year later ridiculous because he still still has it to the playoffs. The only reason was patrick mahomes. I never understood that. Either key like i am with you wholeheartedly. I never understood that that the reasoning behind that higher should say. The only thing i knew of was patrick mahomes was that clippings coach patrick so the cardinals i agree with. That's a good..

"It's a big deal to sell the program how to use a head coach. Prepare for media days. I'm gonna call gus how to our league anymore You know i. It's gonna be a fine line. I i don't i don't know i don't know what the specter anticipate You know haven't been been associated with it. I'm i know the fan base. The sec is still going to turn out in full force. And i know there's going to be a big a big group of people there and we've got to do a great job of selling our program but man i'm i'm one of these guys. It wants to undersell an over the liver you know. I'm i'm still one of those old school football coaches talk about how bad we are then. Try to deliver but this day and age. If you don't hype yourself up you know if you're not your own hype train that can set you back to so it's going to be a fine line I think the best way to handle is just to be honest. And tell people exactly where i think we're at and you know we still have some question marks. I think we have some exciting pieces on the often side of the ball. But you know we still. We still got to score more points. you know you talk about running the football but in the game we lost We were not in the right side of the the scoreboard. We weren't scoring enough to keep us in the game and keep our momentum in the game and so with a quarterback returning like connor obeys lack with with the addition of looper with the addition of tyler. Beatty elijah young. We gotta be more explosive offensively. Which i think will help alleviate some pressure on the defense assata football. You mentioned. mookie. Cooper the Wide receiver already the transfer portal. Doing good things for your program I'm also curious now as we as we get set to move into that aspect of it in and talking about your team and selling your team you got a new defensive coordinator talk about you. See joins great. Nfl pedigree. what impact does that have on the recruiting trail. When you bring in a guy like that well. I think Obviously when we're recruiting everybody's dream is to play in the nfl. And and how does the college experience one translate to the. Nfl experienced the to has prepare them for that. And so when you're talking about steve wilks you're talking about a guy who spent the previous fifteen years in the nfl as a coordinator head coach position coaching. So he can really give these guys. Hey this is what they're looking for in the league. This is how you go about your daily business. You know when he's talking in front of our team to our defense i. This is what you're going to have to do to have sustained excellent in the at the next level and i think any kind of advantage that you can gain from three years four years or five years around a pro style. Football coach is only going to be benefits. You right And so that's that's really what we're selling. He's tremendous tactician Tremendous fundamental coach. He was always known for developing great defensive back coaches and he's got more experience than just about anybody else in our conference in coaching. Nfl football and so We're excited about that. You know we also added general franklin. Who was another guy defensive. Line coach and spent numerous years in the nfl. And so you know trying to really. Hey this is where you want to get to well. These guys can show you how to get there because they spend a lot of there were you also last year had the opportunity to get introduced personally although via zoom so i guess in personally to the other coaches in this you knew gusts you have a history with him some of these other names and faces new to you and you see how they interact on the zooms as you guys talk head coaching business or conference business with great sankey did any of those personalities surprise you You know. I got one opportunity to meet the group in person in then You know getting to see him around the table and in and and then see zoo. It's pretty interesting. you know either. Still guys that don't turn their cameras on zoom meetings and that kind of surprises me a little bit. I'm sitting there going. You know. I don't think if you were the head coach and having a team meeting you'd be okay with your players didn't have the the zoom camera on and i'm not gonna drop anybody's names there but But that that surprised me a little bit I will say this just like we all know when tote sheldon speaks we all listen So when when he when he don't put in his opinion or or has a comment. We all sit there and say all right. Let's let's hear what what he has to say and You know obviously we give him a tremendous amount of respect and that's respect. It's obviously earned. You're earning more. And more as i said that was a name. Years was the name that came up with other coaches. When i was traveling the league or doing zoom caused last year in recruiting a big part of it. So i'm i'm curious taking a look at your social media you've been doing a lot of time grilling to summer all right. So what. I what i say fillets in rib is on the grill is this just grilling for the family. Or is this a hidden message to recruits out there or something that i need to know about. No it's summertime appeals on monday nights. My wife Expects me to cook. And so i've taken to to just grill. And i you know i might send it out recruits and send it out on social media. I get drilled all the time about not using you know a a smoker charcoal and all that stuff look look. I ain't got time for all that propane get mistakes. Cook get in there. And i got eighteen month old. I got to get her to bed by seven thirty. Look i'm not lounging around..

"The numbers that the market is going to warrant for margin player. Am i trying to build super bowl aspirations. And i think you can help me get there then. Great if not. I'm trying to get somebody else younger to continue to build out what my roster looks like the find out if i can get that one. Well if he's a progress stopper then. That's a different conversation. If if i'm a better guy right now. As far as the giants go. Daniel jones has everything at his disposal literally. Everything i agree. It will be clear as day if he's not the guy based on everything around after this year after the sheet here because he's got the tools. Here's a glass year. He didn't have the game elephants. Oh no two years ago scratching their head about josh allen is he what is he doing. All of a sudden income stefan digs income cole. Beasley defense aside. Asadabad stronger now site here. Josh allen won the top five quarterbacks to ever put on a uniform so laugh you laugh jay. You go to such an extreme. Because that's what people do not just fans some of your colleagues not to mention names but it turns out to be. Oh my god well if you look full. He didn't have anything then. When you go out there and you get this type of player to go at him now. It looks great. You said the same thing about baker mayfield in cleveland. He was messing around with freddie kitchens as coach. Come on man seriously like you expect for me to sail under that. This was the running back coach before he was the interim office coordinator and then you kick them up to the head coach. There was no way i was going to succeed. But then co incomes. Kevin's the fancy in this offense for minnesota. I i got a new life now. Now i looked like the guy that was worthy of the number overall number one overall pick in this system. Now if cleveland and kevin fancy was selecting baker mayfield that year at quarterback. He wouldn't have been the number one overall pick. Because you don't need that style. You don't need to take a quarterback for that system with the number one overall pick in the style in which they like to play which is run the ball play defense to all it. But the fact that i've inherited him. And now he's showing me that he can keep continue to be the face of the franchise. In leads the charge he falls in line for contract extension. This is the same full. Lamar jackson mark jackson gets basically thrust into the lineup. After joe flacco fails golsen playoffs. Next year torches the league gets the. Mvp goes to the playoffs. Thirty here gets to the playoffs again. With a lack of weapons on the office side of the ball. You now go ou- you draft a receiver you bring in free. Receiver you retool the skill positions. You get new coaches so now you could extend his game as you get ready to pay him so all three of those quarterbacks are going to get extensions in. It's not going to hurt their chances of winning a championship. So this notion that. You can't pay baker mayfield. Why is on You can't pay baker mayfield because you can't sign other players or kareem hunt. Vj landry all him going to get their money. God only trump. I mean trump's going to get his money got his deal what he's worth and then you're gonna and then you just pay miles gear you brought in today the cloudy you bring in healing johnson on the back end you're gonna have to eventually get the dinsdale war on the corner spot in the everybody get paid in. They'll probably fight them when the championship. So steve kinds. It's just kind of trying to protect yourself. And i get it understand it because kyle murray is certainly tied to cliff kingsbury in my opinion if they don't go as further this year i could see cliff kingsbury getting fired. I really could. Wow i really could because you brought in a guy that was just fired from texas tech right in four years later you still in the same position you were in essentially with steve wilks which means no playoffs and you lose. Stay there at the same thing okay. He didn't win eight games when you didn't let you to give them a chance to win eight games but you gave cliff kingsbury chance to win eight games and you won't eight games again next year and the year after year.

"Back. The second hour has arrived then. An update from omaha texas has jumped out in front of tennessee. Seven to four through four and john taty joining us in a few minutes from al dot com. We'll get his take on all these issues. Let's get back to the calls here. Ed is in south carolina. Hello ed we're doing. Well thank you. I agree with you that the nc double a.'s is about the but there has to be some kind of a governing body. Theoretically there should be. But i'm i'm not assuming i really is what right now. I mean to me the. Ncw just seems like tiger organization that collects billions of dollars in does very little in return. What had to be some kind of people set. The rule is well. Don't forget every every conference you know could could legislate its own but you can figure that out. That's not impossible to come up with. The two of us could go out and hire more competent enforcement staff at a local walmart than the ncwa currently has absolutely and it's getting walmart down the road you know but not agree with you. But there's got to be some kind of a of a governing something. Each confiscate have different rules. I mean we're i mean more than likely there will be a governing body and if the if the ever breaks up okay well i just wanted to get your thoughts about that but i mean everybody's got to be some enforcement of college. Athletics i agree. Shannon is up. next a heller shannon. Go right ahead. I probably the speak with you. Thank you paul. Here's my question you know when when the the name image likeness first came out. I wasn't a big fan of it. But i basically come in the senate thing i hear. You say it's coming. There's nothing to stop it. And and the argument that the colleges are you don't give him an education and a college degree. The truth is in our workforce say the college. He's not worth what it used to be. You know skilled labor and things of that nature of much more value blessing now they. But here's my question. Is it going to be any kind of governance on how schools can use the l. during recruiting for example. Can they say to a kid. Hey if you come here we can get you this dealer that deal versus if you go to another school because that molly concern is going to turn into a bidding more you know and shannon i i agree with you but let me ask you a question who is going to enforce it. I mean you really. I don't i don't mean to say the same thing over and over again but the ncw right now is so backlogged on major cases. I mean they dealt with creighton. Today they still haven't dealt with a number of the big ticket items in you know who they are and if something flares up. Let's say team accusers. Team be i me and let the school throws itself on the mercy of the court. Even if they do that it'd probably still will take years to adjudicate very good point earlier about a home town kid. Hometown car dealership for example. But then you've got a situation where say A still out of state says when you come here we could probably promise you this type of in l. deal and that that kind of thing does does concern me just the bidding war that could erupt for players. I'm sure there's that kind of exists now under the table so to speak. But you know it's no. I think all of these are very good concerns. And i don't think it's going to be a pretty picture and i do believe that the smart schools have already probably figured out how to how to attack it and it's not going to be long. I mean we're already seeing some signs of what's going to happen here in a couple of weeks. Well they've already you know they've already announced it at georgia couple of players that have Tracked star and the kid just founded georgia. The the word is there's already and then i'll deal from a local exactly correctly in place for them and these kids haven't even seen the field yet. No anyway i i really There's good and bad with everything but in this case we all wanted this or most of wanted it. But i don't know how it's going to be managed And i know that Everyone thinks they have control of but it starts. It is going to be very difficult to contain. Hey thank you very much. Diane is calling next. Hello diane go. Right ahead. Paul i i just wanna say bisque. You know my nephew is little michael. A little buddy unsure. Michael followed you. Know to ole miss. And i'm really proud of him but the reason i'm calling you is to say what a great person you are and how great that you do what you do. And i've just that's all i wanted to say. Thank you for calling and updating us and we appreciate your eighty though on with the pie Yeah of course so. Let's hope to. I hope to see you soon. Diane thanks for calling in. I'm about to in birmingham the other day and i'll be back shortly and hopefully we can run into each other great great to see you but which the previous caller was right and there are. There are countless schools who've already who've already gotten the jump on the if you're if you're just trying to figure this thing out you are a thousand miles behind Dustin is in columbia missouri. In your on here hello. Hey good afternoon hey Big fan think. First of all appreciate you I'll just basically wondering your general impressions on fan And i was basically wondering your impressions on first year Even though the season went less than desirable in a lot of different directions. It's hard to judge a lot of things. I think my last season Given the the code situation but Our new head coach You i drink which i. I feel like he's a very driven Coach you've got an edge to him. And i was just basically wondering what you thought about his first year with the program and the new higher defensive coordinator we'll dustin I'm glad you asked i am. I'm a huge fan of a drink coach. Shrink and i frankly think you know. He's got a very good stop. I think of all the people that he's hired. Steve wilks is defensive. coordinator is his best. Hire and gotten to know steve a little bit. I was with them not too long ago and he's just a phenomenal individual. His his his past history is is extraordinary. I think especially from will help him in a recruiting standpoint for those who don't know he was. He was defensive coordinator when the panthers made it to the super bowl and he was a head coach in the for arizona in the nfl. And and i think he's a strong recruiter. I think he could he. Could he could help that program and a lot of ways. I know another curtis loopers on that staff. Somebody gotten to know over the years. A lot of other really good coaches so. I think this this this year. You'll start to see some of the rewards now. I know there was a big winner to last year. Lsu a couple of other games. I think this year is going to be significant I mean. I'm not suggesting they're going to end up playing for the sec. But i think they're going to have a really good year I think so too and You know unfortunately. I i get to sailing that. This is this coaches. I among possibly possibly some few great stops and yeah yeah. I would never wish this on anyone but i think the big challenge will be to contain him there. I agree i i've heard. Nfl fell people have looked at him from a distance. Deal he i mean. I have no idea what's going to happen in the future but but he will be a name to keep your eye on. I don't think there's any question about that. Greg is in iowa. You're on the air. Hello greg greg. good afternoon. Greg obviously did not Answer the bell. How about mo a next. Hello go right ahead. you're on the air..
Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
Why won't NFL teams hire minority coaches?
"Three head. Coaching spots have been filled this week. But none of those. Three coaches were minorities while the Rooney rule has been followed. Some are beginning to believe that minority forty candidates are not being taken seriously for the open jobs and anonymous African American. NFL Assistant Coach said that the League has quote finally shown. It's not the place as for black men to advance. It's ridiculous it's disgusting. We can sell tickets and make plays but we can't lead Shannon. Why isn't the Rooney rule role working? Well I think until skip this diversity thing yeah. Diversity is a great great to talk about but until you get someone the leadership position that says you know what. I don't just want to talk about it. I want to be about it so until you get older ships that actually wants to put some substance to this and this is what that you're GonNa get now if the general manager there's one general manager that's what minority and that's CR- Chris greer in Miami. There's zero owners that are it shouldn't say minorities. I guess because shot con radically a minority. But when you get the gist of what I what. I'm trying to say until leadership gets more diverse. You're I'm not gonNA have a more diverse hiring background skills. This was puzzling to be. Is that Eric. Enemy has the exact Zac job that Matt Nagy had negative and call plays any recall. Please man they can get the job. Doug Peterson sedinko plays true. Recall to play around Rivera's on but Ron Rivera was not the defensive coordinator in Philly. He he became a D. coordinator what's he got to the D. Coordinator in Chicago. You are you in San Diego. Yeah but he got his getting these enter coaching tree. Eric B enemy has the exact same job. That Matt Nagy Doug Peterson has and he's not getting opportunity is spirit but this. I don't really think that they go into it. Unless you incentivize this. Okay if you how minorities kill we maybe you have an extra three to five five dollars and cap space. That's the only thing that resonates with these owners because I get it skipped if I spent three billion. Let's just say I spent three billion dollars for a restaurant run. You Go tell me what the hell I need to cook. Cook whatever I WanNa Cook it there. And that's how they look at it. Jerry Jones spent money for this. This this mind you oh tell me why should get killed but but this notion that Oh and they brought Muhiba Marvin Marvin Lewis. He brought him in to to do that. Situation wasted the same with the giants the giants they had irebi enemy. They what Joe Judge Chris Rashard Rashard. Excuse me Chris Restoring. Yeah so now. Now we're down to one. Vacant Cleveland Reunion. I'm talking about how good already know. Angle get no frills JAYCO network skill. He already interviewed there. So you would now now the take my name off the leader and solid rubber solid. Take my name off the list. Because he's GonNa get Mad Max two and a half years if you're lucky that seems to instead that's all Jimmy can stomach now if you look at it they keep these. You look at Mike Patton. You look at all the guys they've had and these guys have had I think. Hugh Jackson stayed the longest at two and a half years. But everybody's been two years the list huge only two and a half two and a half long but you get you get these other guys you get pretty kitchens and you look at patent and you look at a I forget. Just give all these one year jazz. WE ACHE AAC CLEVELAND. That in Cleveland of the North this skill ruining rules a joke. I get it. You know minorities Cadillac. An affirmative action thanksgiving. Yeah but in -firmative action. I guess it's federal dollars. You'RE NOT GONNA get the money if you don't do this. The NFL is a is a private entity. So what can you do. What Ki- what can you give? Nfl Do not the so. I have been tracking this for a long time because one of my best friends is John. Wooten who is now the retired leader of the Fritz Pollard. Alliance and he was the driving force behind instituting the Rooney rule as I hiring practice in the national shirow all league and John's point from the start was I just need interviews because if a young assistant coach gets interviewed a couple of times times it gets reported in his name gets out there and if another owner sees that name enough over maybe a couple of years hiring cycles else maybe an owner says chee that guy. He's getting a lot of interviews. Maybe I should bring in. Maybe I should be more open minded to him. But if you're GONNA curse because if I get a a lot of interviews and I'm not getting hired was wrong why here the me getting hired cave liability with that. But John's point in the end was I'd rather have interviews than not have interests. Okay okay so let's go back to the stat that I use last week. The Institute of Diversity and Ethics In sports twenty nine thousand nine racial and gender report card for the National Football Bali. The League got actually an a plus for hiring of color. Assistant coaches right a sit a plot. Oh that's progress right. It got a deep loss for hiring head coach of Color White eight-plus assistance d-plus head head coaches. There's a big disconnect there and it shows you. That owners are fine. Oh hire two or three black assistant fine with that but nope nope. I don't want to head coach to be black. Right gives quite to the restaurant you can cook. You'll be in the bank but Michelle not the bridge. I roll up now okay so when I texted back and forth last we can use this last week of John Wooten just beside himself now. He is devastated by this this development his point was that only one. GM Chris Grin Miami. Point out is use. John's word heartbreaking because it could start with the GM right a black GM of or of color could be more open minded to say to the owner. Hey listen this guy is really bring him in. Let me let me introduce him to you right. The conduit to the owner can be stronger. Iran have I don't know six or eight black. GM right right. We've had them around the league four or but all of a sudden there's a dearth to rape Barma with Barma within Cleveland. He'd Gone Rick Smith who I know very well be in Denver. He interviewed for The Washington. Ashington John Daniel Snyder said head coach could be a head coach. Basically general manager after the Washington like who are the head coaching after the draft. The General Mattis. Okay so sometimes there is group think or shink sheep among the owners because in the end they do want to win right. And if they're looking around the League league and that black head coaches really successful they say well I want one of those. I want to go that direction right well. There was one black head coach who started to have success late in the year ear and he happened to be allied with Chris. Clear in Miami and Brian Floors off the Patriots. Well they started out all time badge for about what seven seven games fifty. Nine seven opening renders and then they basically it felt like they turned the whole roster iside down which they needed to do and then all of a sudden the last nine games they go five and four they upset the eagles and then they went to foxborough and just basically ended the season. I thought for the new New England Patriots playoff teams right. Okay so all the sudden Brian floor floor with the help of Chris greer. They're having big success. It looks like it's headed in the right drug us us but it wasn't enough of a splash to create momentum through the hiring process and right because John Wooden again texted me back with so many names he said we have so many in the pipeline. Who already started with Eric? B Enemy and Chris Rock. I think Chris Shaw Bad Year on defense but when I watch him interviewed when I watch his body language. It's a stunt man he's he's got. CEO Written all over him. He looks like a commanding officer to me. There's not enough black head coaches skip. Because because you look you look at Mike McCarthy guest job he hires the guy that gave him his opportunity coordinator fifteen years ago so you see the circle. We'll skip once you become a head coach. What do you do you go to the combine? You go to say elbow you got your drake. He goes to the coaches meeting and Yada Yada Yada and to connect with the boom boom boom right right. So if I'm not in that Lou. How do I get into loops? Because a rid of staff they said eighty percent of the jobs are never posted so in other worth people get hired somebody a friend or family member is not what you know who you know There in live the roof. It does house so to finish John. Bruton's list of pipeline candidates being AMEE. Chris Rashard Robert Sala. He threw Jim Caldwell on his list. Is Jim Colwell was highly successful zestful. Jim called wheel lost his jaw. Going nine and seven in two years Matt Patricia has nine total win and he's still got a job now he goldwell still doesn't have another job he in four years. He went to the playoffs twice in the last year he went nine and seven and they said well you know we need to move in a different direction. uh-huh and the guy that's replaced has yet to win nine total games in two years. Do you still own a still on the clock. Okay Steve wilks got one shot in time. I'm one year in Arizona and he was gone. He's now the defensive coordinator in Cleveland which probably didn't help his cause this year that much but I don't hear his name no in Cleveland right right on the list. And then there's Terrel Austin who's young stripes potential star coach and John Wootton into his list with Marvin Lewis who he thinks deserves a second shy right. Okay so Jerry. Jones did observe in qualified for the Rooney rule by bringing in. I Marvin Lewis. I think Jerry was shrewd operating waiting there. Because he didn't pick a young like like Chris Rashard type interview him because of Jerry had interviewed a young potential upcoming head. Black coach right. There's more pressure on Jerry. What was wrong with right? What's the problem exactly? He went to Marvin Lewis because he thinks Marvin Lewis is kind of old news right right. He got his longtime time shot in Cincinnati. Listen I still think Marvin did a good job job seriously. Yes okay he went. Oh and seven in the playoffs but still it was Andy Dalton Alton you re you with covering the NFL and you remember what Cincinnati before. Marlene got there was John. Carter number one overall. You Got David Cleland with the fourth. The fourth picket. You got big day to day and Wilkerson purse around the second pick in the draft year after year after a year people. Forget what I know. Marvin didn't win a playoff game. But they weren't even getting close to the playoffs for Marvin got there. No so I was disappointed in Jerry because you know my heart Hartz. I'd love to see Jerry Jones higher black head coach and I think I probably won't live long enough or Jerry will live long enough to know.
Patrick Peterson, Zona Carlos and Trae Boston discussed on Get Up!
"On the trading black and not only that we need, but that he has not come to him directly and express that he no longer wants to be a member of the Zona Carlos. But you think about it Peterson has been on this team eight years. It's the only team that he's been on seven time pro bowler three time all pro. But my understanding is that he has gone somewhat weary, and it is frustrating to be a part of a rebuilding mode when that doesn't align with your. Peak years in your career night, talked to safety trae Boston directly last night, and he told me this said, first of all, I think it's a little bit absurd to do that because it just doesn't seem like we would trade one of our best players. But after seeing what happened to Khalil Mack, I guess anything is possible, but he said I haven't seen Patrick Peterson grow frustrated around the building. He's been the same guy. And matter of fact, I feel like everyone has been optimistic and has not shown quick. And lastly, greenie, he said, that is because when Steve Wilks can get in front of team that is one and six and still show unwavering belief that is what has helped keep this team together. But there are reports of interest from the patriots, supposedly the Steelers, obviously the saints are out of the question with ally, apple going to that team. So we'll see anybody offers anything that is palatable enough to make them even come off of that stance right now greenie, those are difference making player. I will say that in Peterson, he is one of those guys that could get moved if he does between now a next week that could make a genuine difference to seen a. Coming up. Another teams having a dreadful season and the players are getting shipped at a town is the New York Giants. Where does that leave manning after another trade this morning? Stephen anyways. In next.
