"Now another big story, of course, is covert vaccines and, you know everybody wants to know when they're when they're going to be ready when the trials are going to end when the trial's going to begin. What do we got? Well, a couple of encouraging reports this morning. Ted Johnson and Johnson is preparing for a large scale trial when it's covert 19 vaccine is ready. J and J says it May Testa's many of 60,000 people twice as many as other big trials in the U. S. The design for the trial was posted earlier this month. The trial may begin late next month.

Well, that's all we can do. At this

"Boroughs of the world who have just breakout final seizes on campus for making the sort of move that they've made over the years typically question number three from Nikolai Herman. That's at Niko. What is your viewpoint on why the seahawks and John Schneider do not get any heat for not getting a new deal in place for Jamal Adams before trading him in the same way Bill O'Brien did for Laremy Tunsil great question Nikolai I think it largely has to do with John Schneider and Pete Carroll's record of success. They've of course, want a super bowl they've been to two super bowls and they've been consistently contending for a decade right now. So they deserve the benefit of the doubt. I also think part of this is Bill Brian has become such a punching bag in the media, and there are certain corners in the media that I think our rely on narratives a little bit and narratives growing social media, and sometimes it's hard to decipher the truth from the narrative. The truth is that Bill O'Brien has been to the playoffs four times in five years. They have a good young quarterback, they've rebuilt their offensive line. There's been a lot of good. That's been done there. Now it's not perfect. There's no question about that that the issues. Organizationally without question Bill O'Brien has. Has, has his share of responsibility for all of that. But if you look on the field and you'll get the roster, not an unhealthy situation and that's why I said that I I said over the weekend like it just it seemed. Just inconsistent. When you saw some of the criticism that Bill Brian got last August after Laremy Tunsil trade and he didn't see the same sort of kind of very aggressive criticism towards the sea hawks and again, that's what the acknowledgement that Schneider in Carol deserves the benefit of the doubt and both cases you gave up a lot. For a very, very high player and so that players got to perform at that level. I know the Texans are happy about where they're out with lower me tonsil I don't have any reason to believe that Seattle won't feel the same way about Jamal Adams a year from now question number four from eternally optimistic. That's at Georgia, boy underscore nine twelve. If you're a projected top ten first round pick for the two thousand and twenty one, are you sitting out the season with all? That's going on and focusing on the combine or do you suck it up and chance it without a union or guarantees by playing this year? I think eternally optimistic you are. If IT'S A. One hundred percent case. By case basis, you know at the quarterback position. They say you need a certain amount of throws in a certain amount of wraps at the college level before you play in the NFL and that's something I would certainly consider if I was Trevor Lawrence are adjusted feels that I could make myself better as a player and the risk that I'm really going to sink in the draft is minimal. So it might be worth going and getting the experience and if you WanNa look at the injury risk, Lewis to look at a ton of Loa that guy had as about as bad non-food. Injuries you could possibly suffer and he had a lengthy a an extensive injury history before that yet he still went fifth overall, and so for quarterbacks I think we're talking about one thing for everyone else. We're talking about another. If you WANNA talk about the other end of the spectrum if I'm one of these running backs who came back from my last year on campus and there were a handful of them last year like Alabama's. Harris clemson's travis at Ti an. Oklahoma state Cuba Hubbard I would seriously consider sitting out because you know the the whole game running backs is your odometer. You know you've got a certain amount of mileage on your legs and you got a certain amount of mileage until you aren't what you were before in the goal and the goal is to get to your second NFL contract and so putting yourself in those sorts of situations and what could be very unstable or uneven college season I think there's a lot of risk there. So if I'm a quarterback I, really consider. I really really seriously consider sticking with it and getting the reps that I that are GonNa make me a better player and then they're gonna make better pro whereas running back I'm probably kind of like looking at this and saying, this might be time to get out of here. Question Number five from Dana Og that's at Dana Oh. Gee. What is happening? With all this happening with the MLB you honestly see nfl the NFL making it through a full season Dan I'm gonNA. Tell you exactly what team doctors that I've talked to have said, what team executives that I've talked to have said over the last few months? That is I am confident that they'll be able to start the season. I do think they're going to start a season on September thirteenth I do think one is going to happen I. Am less confident. They're going to be able to finish the season and again, i. believe that's because we are all at the mercy of what happens in this country, every businesses and especially sports that require. People congregating that require in some cases including this case physical contact. So much of this is going to depend on what's going on in the country particularly because they're not in a bubble and so to me, it's just where are we in October November as a country you tell me that I'll tell you how good a chance they've got getting through the seas and finally question number six from j Richard. TACO. That's at ninety seven JD. Dr. What is the expectation for a team if their entire offensive lineups out or all their QB's great question Jay Richard. I think they just got to find a way to make it work. This becomes more interesting question when you talk po-potentially that sort of outbreak during the season though, and this is part of the reason why teams want clarity on what's going to constitute. Now, break in the League probably needs to work on giving team some sort of idea of what's going to constitute. An outbreak, you cannot leave this up to the individual teams. The way baseball left it up to the marlins over the weekend. And you have to draw a line and you have to give guys, you have to give the people in charge a very, very clear understanding of what constitutes an outbreak. So there's GonNa be a raw number for that. Maybe it's twenty, twenty, five, whatever it is number of people that. Would lead to a shutdown really do a forfeiture that sort of thing, and like you said, Jay Richard, there's also the possibility that maybe there's a position group GIG that gets wiped out and maybe that creates a player safety issue, and so you're GonNa have to allow for that as well. It's going to be a complicated season. There's no question about that. That's the one thing I can't say. For, sure. Appreciate you guys coming out for the return again, we want your feedback and I want your feedback on this podcast that we just did which a little longer than normal but I wanted to give you something to chew on coming back off vacation, and also while your feedback on the podcast, we did during my vacation, the ones.

"We snapped the fingers and we know we got these players down on the farm and let's bring him in and even for playing with twenty four. Let's go out and play but to your point in all of this, it's the whole. You're going home to different people you're in a hotel you're in a in an airplane there's much more travel involved but Major League baseball if I'm the NFL rioted in look no harm no foul. If you have an issue, you just forfeit the game that's IT I. Don't think it's that hard well, two things. So two things there right number one, I like the first thing is like. I would say the coming out of the MARLINS thing yesterday. A couple things that I got from teams like basically indicated that they wanted clarity on what constitutes an outbreak and I think that that's important to write like. So what constitutes an outbreak that would either cause a forfeiture of a game? A shutdown of a facility like I think that that's an important thing right? Is it five people? Is it ten people as at twenty people and dress to your point? It could be a moving target like what happens of physician group gets wiped out where it's only seven guys but it's seven offensive line. You know what I mean like like what happens then Jerry, creating a player safety issue for your quarterback if you do that like to me like that's To me, that's such a big part of it like. So giving the teams definition of here's what you've got a here's here's what we're trying to prevent, and here's the number wear. So it's fair for everybody. Here's the number of cases that's going to cause a shutdown. The second piece of this there are a couple of important similarities I think between baseball football number one. Their starting season they're not finishing one right. So soccer in Europe they were finishing a season hockey and basketball here they were finishing a season baseball isn't finishing he's baseball starting season. So that's one key similarity. Number two, they're not in a bubble in. That's the obvious one right and so let me let me let me paint scenario for you. Okay. We all know these guys have to be responsible right like these guys all that that that's number one you have to be responsible right and if if if jackass is going out with jackass number two jackass number three to the bar and Friday night, and then coming into the you know the walks through on Saturday morning you might have a problem. All right. So that's that's the obvious part but what about this? Florida starts school and what two or three weeks I think it's three weeks. Okay. How many teams are in Florida? Oh my God, well, three Perot teams and countless college teams right. So like if you're if you're a assistant coach and you got kids in school or you're an older player and you've got kids in school. Do you do everything, right But your kids being exposed to all that stuff right. So your kid goes after school some other kid has it. This is no fault of anybody. Everybody's trying to do their best and your kid gets it. Like that's pretty possible. Isn't it, and that's not you doing anything wrong that's you going home to your family and so that to me is the difference with because these things are multipliers like where it's like your wife, your kids like like it just if you're not in a bubble and that's that's the fundamental difference in a bubble, you're only beat you're only around other people who have been around those same that same group of people. If you're not like there, there's a personal responsibility end of it, but there's also that end of it crash where it's like you can be doing everything right and it's still be exposed somehow it's amazing that a mask could stop a lot of this. Really Amazing when you think about it that because as you were working through that scenario, I started to think about what if you're you know if your kids a senior in high school or junior in high school and they're going to play football in your the dad, you're going to be standing on the sidelines with the other parents you're going to be co mingling like you normally would be or you're going to be down the other end of the field with a mask on praying God. Nobody comes up to your slaps on the back and tells you how great your kid is. Or how great you are. So you're right. You don't think of it in the thirty thousand foot view and I think that's when you look at it from the thirty thousand foot view and you think of all of the different ways these players could still be exposed to cope with nineteen in and away from the facility is it sounds like it is a daunting task yet there is an overwhelming amount of Americans right now who found the ability to be able to survive whether it's working from home whether it's apt their work habits you know I've been to the store a whole. Bunch since the pandemic started I'm safe I. Might I'm not wrong loves but I, sure got a lot of hand sanitizer and it makes me think Bert has there been any digestion of what has been said in the last four or five months that the NFL as the ability to really program some of these players or give them the real tried and true information that they need to be able to have the medical info to make the decisions they need to make to get through this season UNAC- that's that's gotta be. Now I know that the NFL PA said Hey agents educate. Your players bullcrap of a team. That's the very first thing I'm doing is you're getting your cove education. Here's the science behind. Here's how we're going to approach this, and if you don't like it are more than free to leave. You don't else doing I'm pulling my captains in and I'm saying you're word carries more weight with that twenty three year old kid than mine ever could suggest you better. Put You put your foot on that Kid's throat and you tell him like if you go out, you're messing with my money you're messing with my season and I'm not gonNA tolerate it. Into state or a young kid hey, young blood you're just now making money. So you not only you be affecting my money you've been waiting to get to this moment your whole life to where you're going to get paid for this profession. Now Fall in line and do what we need to do. Yeah and you know it's interesting. You Remember Don Davis, the old Patriot linebacker he's now senior director..

"Right. Thanks Ted always great catching up with him. We have a great time in the fall in the post game in the pre game show and he's just a great dude in general happy to have him on the show here for the very first time and from there. We're going to jump right in your questions. Because of the circumstances you guys have noticed the last couple of weeks we've reverted to doing the questions that you guys. Send us the way we used to do them. So went from being voicemails and emails now back to doing six pack longtime listeners of the show understand how the six pack works. We the cough for questions on twitter. We ask you respond. If your question gets picked we give you like on twitter? That means they hit that little heart button there and you get an answer here. Question number one for the week from Smith that's at Brian. Underscore nineteen fifty-three Brian's asking how interested with the colts. Being jalen hurts Brian. I do think that there will be on. The colds are going to do their homework on the quarterback this year by I think part of trading the thirteenth overall pick four to force buckner wasn't acknowledgement. That maybe they didn't think that the their long-term answer was there. And furthermore I think that the the the edition of Philip rivers is a sign that they are planning that they are doing their best to sort of keep the train on the tracks with the program as they built it the last three years and you know just sort of treading water for the next year to at the position until they can find the next answer that that in fact is exactly why you know and we reported this a month ago why Brady was sort of a non starter for them and why they didn't pursue Tom Brady because you know when they looked at it they said okay. If we bring in Tom Brady now. We're going to be all in for one or two years. We're going to probably disrupt our program in several different ways and that's not saying that in a negative way it's just. It's just the fact of the way that would have gone and they didn't want to do that you know they've they've been. They've drafted really well the last few years. They've got a lot of young players and their team. Guys like Darius Leonard Quinton Nelson like rocky a sin and so they want to sort of kind of keep the building process going as it's been going in the best thing for them to do to keep that going was bringing the guy. They knew that they wouldn't disrupt much as far as how they've been building program. Philip rivers knows. Nick Serianni he knows Frank Reich so it made all the sense of the world to go for with two quarterbacks and rivers and Jacoby perset that you know that you like that'll buy you a year and if they're willing to come back and twenty twenty one maybe two years to find a long-term answer I would expect the CA- the colts will be headlong into the two thousand twenty one quarterback class and it should be a good one CLEMSON's Trevor Lawrence Ohio States. Justin feels at the top of that group question. Number two is from Rick. That's at Rick conch thirteen. I know the draft is loaded with receivers but the free agency market for them has been nonexistent. What is are the reasons? Well I think you just hit on it and advertently there because the draft is loaded at receiver teams aren't being as aggressive with the free agent market because they know we get to April not even necessarily in the first round and the second or third round we may be able to find starting level players and then they look back and they see the last few years when the receiver in the draft wasn't as strong as this year. Wow you can find answers in the second round there was Michael Thomas. Dj Shark there the to miss kids last year. Aj Brown and decay metcalf. So you know I think what hurt receivers on the free agent market guys like Robbie Anderson is that the draft class is so strong teams are saying why spend in March? Why overspend in March when they're going to be answered for us there April question number three from mobile own. Mo- sound guy most likely darkhorse team to trade up for a quarterback. Why don't they give you the Tampa? Bay buccaneers is one and I know that sounds weird. But they don't have a ton of pressing needs in their team and maybe it makes sense for them to put the Guy who will succeed. Tom Brady and the roster. Now you may remember and I'm GonNa bring up this comparison again but Denver Peyton Manning two thousand twelve. What are they do? They drafted Brock. Osweiler that year. Now obviously it worked out in two thousand fifteen where they won the super bowl in part because he was able to kind of keep the keep the. Keep the train rolling When he got in there but he didn't want to be a long-term answer but the point is they felt they had to put a younger answer younger piece the position because they've gotten so much older with their starter and so I wouldn't be surprised to see Tampa at some point. Take a quarterback because they look at and they say okay. This is where we need to make our move and we need to put somebody on the roster who could be the long-term answer the other team. I'll keep an eye on the raiders. Just because they got two first round picks they're picking twelve nineteenth that nineteenth pick of course is one of the last pieces of the coil Mac Trade and I. I do know that they've sort of continue to look for ways. To Upgrade Marcus Mariota will sort of be playing the role that Ryan Tannehill played behind him in Tennessee. Next year. Where it's like you know in case of emergency brake last guy You know they've tried to create competition for Derek Carr. Let's just say they get really clean. Medicals back from to a Tunga below as people. Let's say I I don't know how he's GonNa prove it but he does something like were there. Wow we gotta look at this and let's say because of the medical maybe other people assess it differently starts to slip in the top. Ten is a crazy to vegas. Could make a move up to go and get tongue below that my mind is not so those are the two teams surprise teams to trade up question number. Four from Adam. Show Walter. That's at Adam show Walter. Why didn't you debbie cloudy of a bigger market? And who is actually in place for his services. Still I think he winds up back in Seattle at and the reason why he doesn't have a bigger market. I think there are two reasons. Why Number One? I think is financial expectations. Were a little much. He expected to be paid like demarcus. Lawrence and Frank Clark and all those guys last off season and I think he could make the case that you know in a lot of points in his career. He was better players than those guys. He's a better player than those guys. But if you're asking for more than twenty million dollars it's just based on the environment right now. It's it's a tough thing to ask. Teams projected the cat being higher than it wound up being. And here's the big thing if you're gonNA make sort of investment we talked about this with Cam and you're bringing in a guy with injury history you're gonna WanNa bring them in for a physical you're gonna WanNa take a look at them and they haven't had the chance teams haven't had a chance to take a look at him physically and so. I think the most likely scenarios he winds up going back to Seattle. And maybe he winds up going back to Seattle on a one year deal question. Numbers five eighty one. That's at D. Underscore Ricker eighty-one hypothetically. If the season does not happen withdraw remained the same for twenty twenty one. I believe it would also any movement on Janaka or Trent Williams trades so we mentioned we talked about trump trump Williams earlier. I think the trump Williams trait happens if his contract demands. Come down if he's so desperate to get out of DC. Maybe he's willing to take a little less than a contract if he's willing to take a little less than a contract. I think all of a sudden there'd be a good market for him on the I'm afraid front as for Jahic bionics and interesting case because I think you have to slaughter them probably somewhere between you. Slot them between where he had a had. Frank Clark and d four last year Frank Clark went for a one or two D Ford. Went for two twos. Why the difference? Well because D- Ford F. actually deport actually went for one to d four. Went for a two. Because he isn't as good a run defender. Frank Clark's more. Well rounded player. Jaanus a little bit more like d Ford in that sense very very good pass rusher kind of an ordinary run-defender and so two teams look at it and say this guy's worth to if he's worth at two is Jacksonville. Move Him for two and what he asking for. Contractually that's going to be part of the equation to D four. Took a fairly team friendly deal last year to go San Francisco and so all those things sort of play in. Where what's he asking for in the contract? And where's that middle ground between what? Kansas city got for deformed what Seattle got for Frank Clark. Last year obviously both moves worked out to a degree both those teams San Francisco in Kansas City. That traded for those players wound up in the Super Bowl Oh jahics I mean to me if you can get a first round. Pick for him. If you're willing to give up a first round pick for The deal you make the deal happen Finally question number six from GM wannabe that's at GM wannabe. What are the vikings playing with cafes from hunters contract restructuring? I don't think the Vikings are GonNa do anything big. They've got the draft capital now after the stuff on digs trade. Where they're able to they're going to be able to. Address needs on the offensive and defensive lines and the receiver position based on. What's available in this year's class like somewhere along the line in April and so they'll be able to do those things where this could make a difference is if you do. WanNa keep Anthony Harris and it was a surprise Anthony. Harrison is people that they were tagged the Vikings made room for Anthony Harris's tag by doing a new deal with her cousins. There's just right now. I think more than anything else. This was about creating breathing room. In general they needed to create breathing room for Harris Tag. They needed to create breathing. Room for For for their rookie class. When the rookie class comes in and now they're going to have to first round picks that are going to need room for that so it's just I think part of this is just normal accounting? Because they were in a tight spot coming into the off season and if anybody benefits from this you know contract monetarily than I think. It'll probably be somebody who's on the roster right now. Somebody like Anthony Harris so that was six questions but I do have a bonus question here from my buddy fits that's IANFITZSIMMONSESPN at E. N.

"Actually those are superior nobody can check guy but when it comes to the human being I can. I will say you can be Betty. He can be been dictated. Um He can hold grudges and I just think Malcolm Butler benching in the Super Bowl. It really showed a lot of guys in that locker room and I think cost them alternately. Chance to win the sixers back on now. They've they've won their six two thousand eighteen but in that season. I think that really rub guys the wrong way And so that's just one kind of interesting where it's like. They were sleepwalking. Through the first part of that two thousand eighteen until they've gotta figure it out again but there's one thing it's like you know what bill you know you kind of. Let your your personal stuff in the way of doing what was right for the team when he's always saying what's best for the team so that's. Kinda one day you can look at where I think players are probably like man. It's not it's not working man when we get to this point and you. Kinda deal out And we wind up losing the whole thing where it's like. It's tough for guys to slow that if you're GONNA take below market value deals you're not gonNa be praised that much you're not gonna be you feel like you're going to work you better win a lot burke and you better not of course in a position to win in. La Your personal a intervene in in pettiness intervene and losing some big game so speaking of pettiness personal stuff. Like how much do you think these two guys are motivated by proving and you know both of them how much they're motivated by? Proving it was me you know what I mean the six championships the twenty years of unprecedented success. That was me that wasn't him that was me. Like how much do you think Tom's motivated by that? How much do you think bill's motivated by that? Well I think I think they're both motivated by but I think in particular row ballot check is so ready to prove that he can win without grady. And that's what makes guys like Like our business. I think. That's what makes this whole thing so fascinating. I really think bill wants to show. He can win without Tom. Let's Basit career did not really take off until win. We four of the two thousand one season with Tom Brady started for black. So and then it just you know. It's been an unbelievable and I'm president amount of success in the twenty year window but it didn't start until Tom Brady was his quarterback he's got games. He's won without Com. You Yeah you have back back years after year to year. Winning ultra hasn't been established without Tom. Brady being your quarterback and so I think he is so driven by that piece right there and I think he was really ready to move on from Tom. You can say we made him an offer but you truly didn't make an awful. I think was an honest offer. You knew topping may be open to so to me. He got his desire bag. That was ready to move on so now he can start coaching without. Tom and I proved to everybody that he doesn't need. Tom Brady as his quarterback to win. Football game drew bill. Burr and he is. I mean He. He's smarter spending been around but he's got a big ego and he is driven by that ego and he's got a lot of pride and so this is what he wants and I can't wait to see how it all turns out for like so I I know you like it's hard to separate one from the other. I was thinking like when they rebuilt no nine. And and sort of like the changeover. From the guys you played with like the variables the Harrison's the the laws You KNOW DETROIT. Browns that group to what became. I almost patriots. Two point Oh Gronkowski mccourty like Aaron Hernandez for the Short Time. Like that change over like they never really had to go through a rebuild. Because Tom could still elevate everybody around him right like he could still like. Hey I'll make it work while we're rebuilding this thing. That's really hard to do. It's really really hard to do. So this is GonNa be a tough question. Do you think like if you had to split it up. How much of a do you think of the last twenty years is bill on how much of it is? Brady is even. Is there one more responsible than the other like? How do you look at that? You know I always kind of lean this question more towards bill like I think I'm crazy. I was about check Moore born and Tom Brady. I think so difficult to get by in The players if you're the head coach it's so hard to motivate year after year after year. A lot of the same or guys and get them to buy it. It's just hard to establish the culture of a winning culture like bill has created. I Say I'm always since bill but I'm starting to kind of maybe lead or 'cause a big part of and we've already touched on his wave. Bill was able to create this culture this winning culture. But it's very demanding and no one's getting overpaid and everybody's for the most degree treated the same it all was because Allow him so to be the kind of poster child for that culture and I mean I've been in team meetings. Bill is critical You know it'll allow him to speak. Do that to establish this culture like you mentioned before Tom. Brady's not above getting chewed out. Then we all got to be ready to be chewed out If if we're not doing our job so I'm not almost lean more towards console even when it comes answering that question because they he was almost the poster child or back Holzer embiid building have comedy kind of you know point to the guy if he can take it. We all can then. I'm not so sure that culture is is ingrained and established as much as it was so it's the next year or two. I can't wait to see the buy in from these players without Tom. Being there You Know Kinda guy appoint to lasting on this. Then I'm going to give you a story. Drew Blood so probably. This is probably and I know you good friend of yours. This is probably four years ago now. Three and a half years ago it was on the anniversary of the hit and I remember drew saying to me like that. He thought like his relationship was dead with ballot check and that like he was nervous to go back to. Foxborough and this guy is like a very close at the owner and icon in the area. All that he was afraid to go back to foxborough because he didn't know how bill would react and he didn't go back there. After he retired and in eleven he gets elected to the team hall of fame and so they bring him back for to introduce him and he said he was like almost nervous walking out on the practice field because he knew run into bill and he saw bill and. I think I may have told you this story before but he saw bill and he said Bill couldn't have been warmer and he said bill came up to him asked about his wife asked about his kids asked about his wine and drew said I was shocked. It was like a totally different guy and I wonder about that Ted. 'cause I'm trying to project this forward and look at where the Brady bill check. Relationship will be ten years from now. But I've always struck me as somebody who is just hyper disciplined about separating professional life from his personal life and once you're gone you switch once you're gone as a player you go from being a part of his professional life where he has to treat you one way to being a part of his personal life where he's a totally different guy. Do you buy happens. O'brady oh man that's a great story a highlight I think. What is a clear pattern? Why build our check and that is hey man sorry. They don't like his players. I'm GonNa do you know what I think right or how I WANNA do things. I'll make up with them later. And there's so many samples of that I don't care who it is and Richard Seymour might might Raval Malcolm. Butler had colon the off season after that Beijing. Other ways. Now Bill. Smart to do that because he doesn't want you know there's a lot of players or players know a lot about bill. How he treated treated them things that went on behind closed doors and what about bill is still relevant head coach? Asli. Nobody's GonNa say were little smart to have. I think reconcile. Those guys extended an olive branch. Those guys like you said. He did withdrew And I think more than not more than anything you guys want to be invited behind the velvet rope. They WANNA be part of what's going on. And so they the that trying to response from bill there they they want that you know and so all the stuff that went on in the past. Can All be forgotten? Building doesn't very good job. As much as is is a difficult kind of you know. Task Masquerades play for later in life. He knows is probably his best interest to kind of make amends with these former players Because you know he he actually. He doesn't care about the media but he does he cares about what people are saying about him and how he's being portrayed And he's almost borderline excessive with it and so he's smart to mend fences with both players. They didn't have maybe good relations with so my point is that. Oh Heaven immigrate like that and ten years. Oh Yeah I mean it needs a little bit of time so it. Kinda work its way out and then I guarantee you. He's so skilled and making that connection again with guys. I guarantee he'll do brady and Brady into it absolutely okay. So before. I let you go I because you were down in. Houston you were around. Billy O'Brien yeah. You did have a chance to watch the Andre Hopkins up close for a bunch of years your reaction to what's going on down there and how things have changed over the last year you know. Obviously Jackie Easterby. Now's the executive vice president there. They've traded UW and cloudy. They've traded De'andre Hopkins. They traded four Laremy Tunsil. The face of the team. I mean and this is rare with a guy who was going into what year seven now as a head coach where it almost feels that. They're changing the culture again. You know So like I. I just wonder as somebody who saw everything down there. Like kind of like your reaction to what happened. You know in general and then in particular the deandre Hopkins Trade. I was I was. I was shocked by trade. I did not know that maybe potentially there was You know an issue there between the Andre in the head coach. I I do under Hopkins. I teach about seven years. Or was he kept his mouth shut and he works his ass off and he wound and he produced. Let's the that's all I've ever known beyond Riach now I've been waiting for the last years and things change. You have to success. And he's had then maybe you know maybe he's he's he's not the same guy to deal with any more So when I kind of heard that news I thought Oh boy I thought one thing I I in my mind when I saw and get traded to the Arizona cardinals for a second rounder. Was You might be lose those losing the team they can potentially be losing the team When you when you trade away your your best asset. Not named Shawn Watson Can Really. It can really rock you. And so you don't have the Andrei Hopkins on your side or you don't have to David Clowney on your side and maybe you know on the same page with you as far as the direction of the James Going. There's going to be harder or the other guy now. There's an iconic name still on that team. Jj Watt but he's been injured the last few years Burke and so maybe here's his kind of supportability. Oh doesn't carry the same weight as maybe those other players but That's the first thing I thought of that. There's not I n From his players if getting rid of that kind of caliber player tells me that those who weren't getting along and my feeling is he influences. All the restaurants hockey doesn't so what are you. Maybe on the way out. Or what are you? Maybe better saying about bill. O'brien filters to the rest of the team and so I worry about his. You know his ability to gay guys to play hard form to buy in in in. You know kind of want to back him as the head coach. I'm worried that that might be. I don't know who knows maybe coming to an end. I hope not also like all right last thing because I think that. This part's interesting so like let's say they did that for culture which is what my belief is that they did this like. It's a cultural thing right. And then you see what happened. It was happening in Detroit. Where they're you know they're bringing in Jamie Collins Doron harmon and Danny Shelton in Miami with Brian Floors. They're bringing in. Kyle Van Noy Ted Karras and Landon Roberts even with the giants now. Joe Judge going there. They're bringing in nate abner and Dion Lewis. You're there when bill. I got to New England and he brought in. I believe Brian Cox Anthony Pleasant Roman Phifer. A few guys that have played for him with the jets. Do you think the culture things overdone at all or or trying to replicate. What you had in Foxborough is too difficult to.

"Before and after Patriots Games he played for the Patriots for nine years. I think I think he's nine years and and and And he's also he's also worked in the Houston market we're bringing in former NFL linebacker. Ted Johnson Ted. What'S UP. Hey what's going on buddy good to be with you all right so like first of all this is long overdue. I've been meaning to have ten on for a while. He does a great job and I I want. I want to start here having played with Brady. His first five years a having known the guy since he was I guess what the twenty-three-year-old with the ugly yellow jeep. What do you what? What what what when you saw that pop up on social media last week. And you see the finality of it. What sort of running through your head? Were you surprised at a catch? You off guard Did you reflect like like what's like? How does something like that hit you? Yeah it was it was. It was no surprise to me. I mean I felt like a lot of people were given. They're given the chance to come back to to New England fifty fifty deal. I just you could. There was enough evidence and they really the last couple years Been suggested he was gone. He was at in in. This was not You know Kinda at this point. His career that he wanted to acquiesce. Take on below market value deal. They really looked like he was ready to move on. And there's just a lot of different things you can go back to. One of the big kind of clues was knocked pretending. Oj's After the two thousand seventeen season not attending okay. Ota's after two thousand eighteen season This is overall attitude this year. Bir just really miserable When the name was Arlo there to start the season And then just some of the things that he was saying. I think particularly for more revealing comments. I heard Tom may was in regards to this contract this past training camp when they asked him bad his contract. He's like I don't know guys. Go ask Mister crap you know and it was like it. Was Fate rollaway kind of you. Know a line they. Maybe you would not think was that revealing. But it really wasn't very very telling because you have to understand I think And Mr Graefe have had it alliance may have been. They've been a line or a very very long time. And that was the first time I think you saw. Maybe that relationship was not what it used to be truly more for. That Robert Kraft was disengaging from contract negotiations and he was going to let Tom Com. Bill handle that and I think that was probably one of the deepest kind of all cut so ball were time. Because he's always had Mr cramp in his corner when it came to contracts and so any I played for built for six. Years is very difficult man to to to work for into play for and they just all this stuff that was going on. We don't probably have kind of all things. It just finally caught up time. And he was like he wasn't afraid to take a chance instead of out of his comfort zone finally for the first time in his career. Try something do. It's fascinating to see how it all works out. Man I wanna get to like the program and like how tough it is plain that program in a minute but you did hit on something there with the contract right and he's been playing for and I'm sure like as a player you there were probably points in your career where you felt like you were underpaid right. I think every player probably has that. How much like because? Brady's been on. I think what most people consider below market deals for most of his career. How does that wear in a player like because I think we've all probably like in our in all of our lines of work? There's probably points where we feel it to. You know this is a normal human human way of thinking like how does that wear in a player when you're going out there and you're sacrificing yourself and and doing what you need to do to get an NFL season and all of that and you don't feel like you're pays commensurate was what you're putting out there. It does it catches up. It's here's the thing I think guys can. Maybe you can be more palatable to take a below market deal one or a few reasons one. You gotta be winning right. I think there's gotta be. Hey that's the trade off I'm gonNA maybe take less money and then the trail. Big Payoff is going to be winning. But also I think it's just overall How you feel like you are Treated by the organization Not Not just your because the owner we all know loves Brady Brady. Doesn't you know have facetime every single day with the owner like you guys go back and I think probably like this is the one guy that Dabur that somebody is show. Lucky begins his praise. And so Makes you work so hard to get any kind of affirmation from that. Is Bill Belichick? I wanted something knowledge -ment some day to day trying to respect handed to him and a lot of people say well. That's not that's your. They shouldn't have to come with it. I think Tom feels like he's accomplished so much. He should be the exception to the rule. And there's a lot of people say bill treats everybody to say that's not necessarily true. I mean there's I think players that he hasn't he likes the HE KINDA considers his guys to patrol the locker and Tom. Maybe wasn't one of those guys. He was very hard dot com in meaning. Very lucky to acknowledge Tom for doing good job. In certain games they get the game. I know that sounds crazy to people. But that wears on your journey given up financial Financially speaking giving money back for tea video at least one the day to day kind of treatment of you on the head coach and the coaches to be respectful. And you know affirmative and then. I don't think Tom is getting that so I just finally catch up to where it's like. It's not worth it any more. Do you think they'll was that way to Tom to prove a point because like I've always heard like it enables the whole program right like enables the program that if you're sitting in the room and you're watching Tom Brady? The greatest of all time getting chewed out. No one safe right like so. How much do you think the way that he handled Tom over the last twenty years and really I mean I guess more so like the last what fifteen sixteen seventeen? Because that's really what he's sort of gotten to that point where he's a superstar like how much of that do you think was to prove a point? I think because the salish the culture the most important player on the team is willing to sacrifice from a financial standpoint for the greater good. Then it's so easy for everyone online. I repair the Patriots to try to another franchise I think is that are just you know a lot of success coach that I think is on par bills ability but in a different sport and that is in San Antonio's Burst Popovich. I always kind of felt like what makes that San Antonio Engine go for so long. Pop can be very hard on. Tim Duncan on twenty Parker on Money Genova in that made everyone else on the line. Okay so I think that's a great point. You're making the bill. The culture was partly established by how bill intrigued Tom. Tom's success with that treatment. I mean I'm accepted. These below market value deals for very long. He bought into that culture. I mean He. He was one of the flag chairs for for bill ballot. Check as far as you. GotTa sacrifice if you'RE GONNA be here which will win. I think for his career he was that way and I think probably about like you know at the end. I should probably be treated a little different bill. I should maybe a little bit more leeway. It doesn't look like Bella track was willing to do that from a contractual standpoint And maybe just on a day to day Sam on how you communicate talk and relate to that player and Tom was like man. Feel like I've earned the right to be treated differently. Then you've treated me all these years and you're not doing it so I'm GonNa go try something different now. Will you mentioned that like like and let's get? We can get to the sort of existing in that program thing now because what you just hit on like how you always hear how hard it is to be there like on a day to day basis. How wears you down mentally and how can wear you down physically even like does that mean like I know? It seems like a simple question but like what is hard about working their day to day versus maybe and you know you're under Pete Carroll for three years too so you saw a different way. What is so hard about being in that environment on a day-to-day basis? Yeah and well bill. Bill traits work environment. That's so unique and different. Luckily in my teenage years bird pretty cool kind of perspective so I had three coaches might seniors bill bill parcells and bill balancing. All three are gonNA be hoping once already know fan. I think it's going to be paying bills belt-tightening well. Three helping coaches all taught in dollar so very different. Parcels was tough. But you know what it was. It was Kinda Fun Working Environment. He got the best out of his players. You could be hard on you but he always likes to say though you fish come back build you back up again. Pete was fun all the time necessarily work here But it was a very kind of relaxed working environment. And now say that the environment when you're trying to put together top off the culture. The man a little bit more disciplined and then he got bill complete polar opposite of both of those guys. He you know he a lot of it. She goes through. Fear And and and kind of way that Well if you do what I say team's GonNa be better off so you're just trying you're chat piece in his game Very much emotion is taken out. You don't feel the player certain players. Maybe you and him than others. The has a real emotional investment and senior. Do well any football players worldwide with emotion. You know and you kind of want to the coast is coaching. You cares a little bit about you. The person and you know you do have kids You have parents do you. What's what's your You know which are wha. What are you liking the person that's just as he's not really doesn't care about and so it becomes draw closer to the guys well. Kinda miserable together so It's just it's a very much a place where you are seeing every single day. You're worrying about losing your job all of a sudden. You're aren't what they used to be. And I love how Michael Bennett said. They need to pass training camp. I just had chuckled. To myself is my He doesn't know bill that will he's like when you treat you like a man you always know where you stand with. Bill Belichick No you don't you never know. You never know where you stand with bill. So you never know what he's thinking in regards to you You know when he demotes. You doesn't come tell you why you didn't tell you what you think you need to do. Better you're in complete dark about it and so your lap to try to figure it out yourself and that makes for a very nerve wracking China day to day work environment that I think is unique to the the rest of the team's bell goes he's just just emotionless and doesn't care about your feelings and you should just accept everything without any had any real issues about which unfortunately there's a human element to play in this game. You know that and so I think it's very difficult for most guys kind of buy in. If you're not winning for sure by tougher so yeah like that's that's actually what I was Gonna ask like this has got to be almost completely results oriented then right. Because if they're the whole thing is I'm giving you the answers to the test listened to me. And you'll have the answers to the test will win. And you'll wind up benefiting individually from it then. Yeah that could work and it did work for Tom. I'm guessing for Tom. It's like like look what happened with him like so as much as he didn't like it. Maybe there was that part but it but it requires the results right so maybe last year. He doesn't get the same individual results and they don't get quite and it doesn't mean they were bad but like the individual results kind of aren't what they were before. The team result isn't what it was the year before and maybe it becomes a little bit hard swallow all that right way way harder to swallow it and I I you know. Here's the thing that bills not always right Jay. I mean he's right and most of the there one thing that you can point to where you can say. Bill ballot check was wrong just and you. It was one of the most kind of public world stage complete and utter like screw off by ballot. Check where you know I I I tend to maybe be very critical bill because I know the man I knew the nature of the man when it comes to is.

"Hey guys we're going to cover all the big news in the first week of free agency the trades the signing all that stuff you get it all here then we bring in a special guest talk about Tom. Brady situation one more time and as always we wrap things up with a six pack of your twitter questions. Let's go welcome in the QB podcast with Al Breer. Quarantine Week too. I hope all you guys are staying safe socially isolating yourself from everybody else that And as a disclaimer. Here if you guys here the Aussie the background and I think he's just freaking out right now a five year old or three year old a six month old or a grown woman That is a product of where we're all at in this country right now. Which is there's no school. More people are at home. People are cooped up a little bit so if there's more background noise just consider that kind of like the ambiance of the time that we're all in There's plenty NFL news to hit this week amid everything has been going on in this country. We free agency. We had trade the draft still kind of looming out there in the distance and we're address all of it here or start with the takeaways and my first takeaway for this week. I'm going to give you some reasons. Why the Brady Bucks? Marriage can work now. We know some of the things that are going to be different. So he's forty three years old. That's obviously a factory is going in and playing an offense that he hasn't played in before that to me. You know obviously brings up different questions. When he's been in one offense for twenty years this is obviously a new program to and that creates. I think an adjustment as well but I want to give you guys reasons why this could work. What reasons why this will work. And I've got right in front of me. Five of them that I think from doing the reporting that I did. You guys can learn all about the pursuit of Tom Brady by the Tampa. Bay buccaneers in this week's m M. Qb at the site through my reporting and how this whole thing went down. I I give you five reasons that I think that this really could wind up working reason number one either Israel investment from Tom Brady to the bucks and what I mean by that. Just look at some of the nuance and what he's going to do a he's planning on being not as if there are not as and maybe there won't be. Ota's but he's Planning on Being Ota's that shows he's all in in a way that maybe he wasn't the last couple of years. New England didn't have to be the last couple of years in New England with the amount of institutional knowledge that he has and then be. He's committed to learning their terminology. That's a little thing right. But when Peyton manning went to Denver like sort of a melting of the terminology and when Aryans Bruce Arians and Jason Light and. Those guys talked to Tom Brady last week. They went through this. And you know Arians feeling was. It's probably easier for twenty twenty five guys who may be average learners to stick with what they're doing and have you learned something new than it would be for them to have something. Let them learn something new. And you stick to what you do and so. I think the fact that he's planning to be not as the fact he's GonNa learn their terminology. Those aren't small things to me. That shows Brady's investment in the program number two. There's investment from the investment in the staff in the quarterback position. And if you look at the white worked for PEYTON MANNING AGAIN. I hate to use that example. But it's the most relevant one here if you look at why it works for Peyton Manning. In Denver. He had a group of young coaches around him. Mike McCoy Adam gays. Brian Callaghan. Jim Bob cooter. There was like this. Think tank around him and they haven't done that yet in Tampa but what they do have is a bunch of coaches who looked at Brady as a quarterback looked at last year's tape. Look at the two thousand. Eighteen tape made the decision. This guy's worth pursuing and therefore coaches in that group that all to varying degrees have a lot of experience with the quarterback position. Clyde Christianson Tom. More Bruce Arians Byron left which Byron left which is coached it he played at the. Nfl Level Bruce Arians. We don't need to go into all the experience he has. But he worked with a lot of key accomplished quarterbacks Ben Rothlisberger Peyton Manning Andrew Luck Carson Palmer You know so. Obviously he's got the experience and then both Tom more inclined Christianson actually worked for an extended period of time with Peyton manning and so all of those guys looked at Brady on tape saw player. They think can still play so. They're all invest in this. And I think that there's at least a skeleton there of group of coaches who have an idea of what it's GonNa take to coach. Tom Brady and I think what's interesting about that to me. Is You always hear this from guys who coach Peyton or Tom? You have to have everything you have to have all your ducks in a row. Because if you're going to present a Tom Brady peyton manning was something new then you're GonNa have to have all the basics covered and you can't go into a meeting with him and just throw a bunch of stuff at them. You can't waste his time. You can't throw a bunch of stuff Adam that he already knows because some of these guys worked in that Environment Payton. It's not GonNa be new for them going into this sort of Environmental Tom. Our number three reason number three is gonna work to weapons around. And this one's pretty obvious we don't need to Belabor this point Mike Evans Chris Godwin. Oj Howard Cambrian. Cambric RE adjusted his contract of late because he wants to play with. Tom Brady Good skill position talent. There I think Ronald Jones has still some potential. Former second came around a little bit last year. They could still Atta back like Levian Bill. Somebody's SORTA sticks out to me. Is maybe a guy that would be an interesting edition for them. So that's reason number three good weapons around him number four the Division Carolina's rebuilding. We don't know what we're going to get from Atlanta to me like it's really new. Orleans is the hurdle for them. New Orleans has got a great roster around drew. Brees is drew brees going to be the same player. He he has been. That's I think sort of an open question so to me. It's really kind of Mono Mano in that division. Whereas if he'd gone to see the chargers you'd be dealing with the chiefs behemoth. The raiders are getting a lot better is just a different dynamic in the NFC south where I think it really is right now. The box and the saints and then finally number five. I really feel almost like all you need to do. A Brady's get in the playoffs. And this was proven a couple years ago in two thousand eighteen the patriots sort of stumbled around in November and December. They didn't look like themselves. And when it counted most brady stepped up and made place. Even when the offense wasn't great. He WanNA shoot out against Patrick Mahomes in the AFC title game and then two weeks later came back in the Super Bowl and in a game. That was incredibly well game plan by. Wade Phillips. He did a job when it mattered. Most at the very end of game. And sometimes that's all you need and so do. I think Brady can be the quarterback. He was say five years ago on a sixteen week basis. No but if he can get back to the point but if he can get the team to January which I think he's still capable of doing he can be an enormous difference maker when you get to January because he's not affected by the environment is not affected by the stakes. We know what he can do on the big stage so those are the five reasons that I think you really five reasons for real optimism with a forty three year old quarterback if you're the Tampa Bay buccaneers Brady's investment in them their investment in him the weapons around the division. And what could happen when you get to the play offs and how kind of small that is when you get to the playoffs about winning three games. Take away number two. The Patriots reboot is on and I've been asked by a lot of people what they're doing at the quarterback position. Here's what I would tell you. I don't think we're going to see a big swing here now if Cam Newton or Andy Dalton or someone like that wants to come in at a discount that's one thing but you know as far as financial investment. I think they're sort of where they wanna be right now. They brought Brian Hoyer. In a cut rate. They've got. Jared stood them there for less than a million bucks. They've got cody Kessler there for less than a million bucks. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they drafted another player at the position. I this is sort of where they're at. They're trying to financially reset that goes for everything across the roster You know they've gotten older. They've gotten expensive in certain areas because they've struck out on draft picks You know they they have just. They need to go through sort of an economic cleansing. And I think this is the year they take the bullet on that they're going to be carrying brady searching and a half million in dead money. Believe somewhere near twenty five million dead money. It's like it's hard to say there ever rebuild when Bill Belichick coach. I don't know that you'll ever see a team. That's not going to be very very competitive. But like you look at where they are financially and some of the situations that they've created for themselves logistically and it just looks like this is the year that they're gonna rip the band aid off. Take the bullet for all the financial issues. They have and then go into twenty twenty one with a clean economic situation of quarterback and with a clean economic situation on the roster. I'd also say this I would not I? There's a very logical way to look at jared and at least that there could be something there. Here's what I mean in two thousand eighteen. The Patriots drafted a guy in the seventh round named Danny at link now when they drafted him they felt like there was some physical ability there and it just was underdeveloped because he hadn't been coached all that. Well at purdue or at Lsu and they thought okay if we can get a guy who's got some physical ability into our system work with him. Maybe we can capitalize on what we believe is a distressed assets. Didn't work out. Dan Yelling llandough cut. I think he's on someone's practice squad somewhere now at point. He wasn't even playing quarterback anymore it. That one didn't work out but the same idea applied in two thousand nineteen when they drafted. Jared stood up. And here's how you kinda follow the Downing Ball with them..
Biden and Sanders brace for one-on-one battle in new phase of Democratic race
"To the fray mom. John Horn the race to be the Democratic nominee for president is basically down to two candidates now Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders after Elizabeth. Warren dropped out today. Warren and former candidate Pete. Buddha judge attracted a good amount of support from Hollywood. So where do all those donors and their money go now? Ted Johnson has been covering all this for deadline dot com as its Washington. Dc correspondent Ted. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me so. A lot has changed in the candidate landscape since we last talked Pete. Buddha judge had the support of big names like Lee Daniels and Seth McFarland since dropping out Buddha judge endorsed Biden have some of his supporters followed. Yes some of the fundraisers have committed to Joe Biden's campaign actually did fairly quickly after people to judge endorsed Biden. And I'm talking about names that are really household. Names former executive and NBC universal a fundraising consultant. People like Lee Daniels in Seth Macfarlane. They actually hosted a fundraiser for people to judge they haven't said where they're GONNA go. Seth Macfarlane is. I actually tweeted out. The fact that in the last cycle he endorsed Bernie Sanders. So perhaps he's weighing that decision whether to go for by her whether a Gopher Sanders so I think people are still still may be a little bit on the fence even though there has been this definite movement toward Joe Biden's campaign. Let's talk more about that. There was a big fundraiser. Last night hosted by former paramount pictures head Sherry Lansing and I think a lot of the momentum hinges on his performance on Super Tuesday. You wrote in deadline that I think at one point eighty people were expected. It turned out to be a whole lot more than that. What happened. Well Yeah Actually. I talked to Sherry Lansing on Monday. And since then she continued to get phone calls for people interested in coming to the event and they finally had to cut it off. I think at about three hundred and fifty people. They just couldn't accommodate anymore to a certain extent. This isn't that surprising because Joe Biden occupies that moderate lane in. There aren't a lot of other options left so if you are not in favor of sanders you're probably naturally going to be looking at Joe Biden if you want to be engaged to this political cycle we're shaping up to have a Biden Bernie battle in Hollywood and we'll see how this plays out. It could be ended up being as as contentious and even nasty as it was back in two thousand and eight when you saw this huge division in Hollywood between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton if there were any lessons learned about that polarization that fight between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. How did the town eventually choose where? There's some conflicted feelings about working with people who might have supported another candidate. Yeah for some people. I think it took them a while. I'm Savan is actually a big name. He's a longtime donor to the Democratic Party. Big Media executive known often for mighty morphin power rangers but he was a figure that was very much behind Hillary Clinton. He appeared on the today show and it took a while to actually get behind Barack Obama. I think it took him until the fall to support Obama's candidacy so it could be even more difficult when you are considering a choice between Biden and Bernie because the division isn't so much behind these two different personalities as it is ideological this race has been set up as a race between the moderates and the left or the far left. And you didn't see that back in two thousand eight. We're talking with Ted Johnson at deadline dot com about Hollywood's take on the two remaining Democratic candidates Elizabeth. Warren has officially dropped out of the race. But she's not endorsing anybody yet. She has a lot of Hollywood support. People that Krissy teagan and buried Jenkins is there any indication yet of where her supporters might go again? I think that this is where people could definitely be on the fence. Between Biden and between Bernie Sanders. I was added warrant event in South Carolina last week with John Legend. And he was. I thought an extraordinarily effective spokesperson for her campaign. He hasn't said Who He's going to endorse yet but he actually would be Think a valuable endorsement for either campaign and he seemed to really kind of reflect. This idea that weren't tried to advance that. There was kind of middle ground between what Biden represented and what sanders represented and she She just had a news conference. Apparently I was wrong about that. That there really wasn't that that lane in this Democratic primary so we'll see what someone like John Legend how he comes out in supporting either. By Sander's there are some very big Hollywood players who have yet to say where their money is going to go to be no which way they're leaning. And how influential are they in? Where other money might go after they pick a candidate? Yes people like Sabban people like Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Heaven publicly said who they're backing. I would be awfully surprised if they went for Bernie Sanders Just because people like for example Jeffrey Katzenberg. He has contributed to multiple candidates in this race except for Sanders. So I I think that might be an indication right there. Some of these figures wanted to kind of sit out the primary process but their support can be influential. It has the bandwagon effect. It probably would have been more influential earlier in the primary because it kind of would have rallied the troops behind one of these more moderate candidates but it will matter to a fair degree especially in fundraising. Especially if someone like a Katzenberg or someone like a High Sabban not only host fundraisers but also get involved in some of the Super Pacs for these campaigns where they can raise a much greater sums of money in the millions as opposed to twenty eight hundred. There might be some people in the country who would say to themselves. Well if George Clooney supports this candidate. I'm going to support that candidate. Is that really the factor though the celebrity endorsement or is it more about the money and what the check writing ability can mean for these candidates. Well I think that it depends on what time in the process. There's not a whole lot of evidence that voters look to celebrities for who they are going to vote for. But what they can do is kind of help. Elevate a candidate in terms of attention. And that's extremely important during the primary process. Probably less important when we get into the general election when it's just two candidates facing other and that's where fundraising tends to become a bigger issue especially as we get closer and closer to

And where better to build both than in Hollywood. Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline where he covers politics and entertainment. Ted Welcome back to the frame. Thank you for having so who came to town? And what did they do? Well Amy Klobuchar was at the home of Lorraine Sheinberg. She's the widow of Sydney Shamburg. Who was very top executive at universal and also very politically active and in his career and the rain. Sheinberg played the wife to officer Brody in Jaws yes And it kind of speaks to. What type of support she's getting. People were moderates in the entertainment industry. Probably a little older than you may see from some of the Bernie Sanders side and then p. Buddha judge is in town on Thursday. They've been out here raising money at the home of Seth Macfarlane who is very enthusiastic about his support for the former South Bend Mayor. It's also being co-hosted by league. Annuals I assume most of these events are relatively similar. You pay a couple of bucks you show up at somebody's house maybe get a photo shake hands and here twenty minutes speech. Do they all fall? Pretty much under that same pattern. Yes pretty much. So it's usually the candidate delivering a variation on their stump speech that you can hear in public on the campaign trail sometimes throwing in a few insider risk comments and sometimes doing acuity with donors who are the kinds of people who are hosting these events and are they aligned with one candidate or do. They spread their love around. You are seeing some of that but I think what really distinguishes. This presidential cycle past ones is here. We are just two weeks out from Super Tuesday and there are a lot of those traditional donors. The people who've been involved cycle after cycle who have not declared their support for one candidate or the other. I'm thinking people like Steven Spielberg Jeffrey Katzenberg. Hyme Savan these people who are incredibly involved in what they have done This cycle is. They either sat it out or just spread their money around among multiple candidates so as an observer. It's a it can be a little confusing. Just because someone has given to a candidate does not necessarily mean that. They're going to vote for that person or they're going to endorse a lot of people are just seeing how this plays itself out. We're talking with deadlines Ted Johnson about campaigning for president. In not that long ago I remember and you do as well the town being pretty much split between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the primaries has one candidate really kind of gone to the top in terms of leading Hollywood attention and money right now. Well it's interesting because if you look at the numbers Comma Harris actually is collected more money from the entertainment business than any other candidate. But she's not even in the race anymore. She's followed by people to judge who is raised. I think it's one point. Two million so far from the entertainment business is quite extraordinary that he's raised that amount. Given that a year ago he was unknown and he came in and really became kind of a darling of the entertainment industry very quickly that I think. A lot of donors a saw his candidacy as potentially historic he'd be the first LGBT president and they really won over by his message. They say hey. We see shades of Barack Obama in people to judge now also shouldn't discount Bernie Sanders. He's raised close to nine hundred thousand for the entertainment business for his campaign and he has a very enthusiastic number of supporters people. Like Adam McKay and Susan Sarandon and Mike. I'm war. They're out there on the campaign trail for him. It's just that he is not relying on these types of high dollar fundraisers to finance his campaign. He's is doing it through these small dollar contributions in his messages. Definitely resonating even in the elite circles of Hollywood but I have to add that. It's also tends to be the left side of Hollywood as opposed to the center La. So let's talk about the right side of Hollywood. It isn't very big but have there been any conservative people in the industry who have come out and said things in favor of or given money to president trump we have people who have come out in favor of trump. Benham with him very publicly from the star. People Jon voight. There is a reluctance to come out publicly in support president trump because there is a lot of blowback. I've talked to trump supporters. Who said they just don't want their names associated with him because things are so polarized at this time but if Bernie Sanders nominee will see. I've talked to centrist donors who are very concerned about sanders getting the nomination. They won't come out and say that that is going to force them into trump's hands. They'll they'll say I'm just GONNA sit it out if he ends up being the nominee but we'll see and once the primary in Nevada is over. Will there be a return of candidates coming back to La looking for more support now yet Joe Biden was post to have an event this week in southern California but that was rescheduled. Because he has to spend so much time on the campaign trail after a pretty dismal performance. In Iowa and New Hampshire. But we're now getting down to just a week away not just from Super Tuesday but also from the South Carolina. Vote so this is. This is crunch time for these campaigns in taking them off the campaign trail has to be a very Savvy calculation that it is going to end up being worth it to fly into California for our fundraiser will probably see the candidates flocked to California not this weekend but the following weekend for those first couple days before Super Tuesday. Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline where he covers politics and entertainment. Ted thanks so much for coming back on the

"Go against me for a reason not to pay every single angle they knew what percentage of time. I was on the injury report. They knew how much practice. I miss. They knew how many games comedy four games. I play is is incredible. How much the teams? No. So they're gonna use everything they can to figure out not to give cloudy that much money. If that makes sense. It would be no surprise that. They use that against him and say, hey, they again, I'm gonna say this. He's not one of their type of guy. Yeah. He's just not how hard is it as a player you brought up the story before about how Jacksonville's started using you differently. The closer it came to you becoming a free agent you share that story before. And I just think about football. I mean, it's such an interdependent sports. He Ted Johnson's word on it where you guys depend so much on each other. There's so much sacrifice. It goes on. But how much did you and how much do you think players think about sacrificing things, and what it could mean for you long term? I think guys like mercilus core asked to do things this year. Appear to be completely outside of his skill set. And the guy just keeps his mouth shut. And does it. It's got to be really really hard to keep your mouth shut and just put your head down and go to work when you know that team is going to use that against you. When it comes contract time if not that you can do about it. Yeah. It's frustrating. Just football is is just the business side. So what happened in the merciless? I he had no choice you to say. We're talking about that. We're talking about him playing inside linebacker position backpedaling. What did he do now covered with outside with twelve and a half sack? House fact. Detectors rushing the passer. They're doing what he does best. And then now I mean, he's a great team. Right. And they had an idea from hey, we're gonna use you want to this way. Best skill set. And he knows that. Yeah. So as a player, you're frustrated. I I'm not good at this absolute best data. I'm going to do everything. I can't put a team. What is hurting you? You was hurting you. Yeah. So it's frustrating. It's like this is going to hurt my value. Because now if I'm going to create or trade, whatever case, maybe the next year. Okay. You had what to this year wider production? Go down. They don't use the all that stuff. Your tackle level went down everything. Well, I can't imagine. He's gonna wanna be here after the twenty nine thousand nine seasons Whitney. Oh, yeah. After this coming season when he becomes a free agent. Obviously a team can tag him to keep them from going anywhere. But I gotta believe that his wish is going to be to find a place where he fits better and can be can can play to his strengths. I say that. Because if that's the case, then it does make this off season the best time for the taxes to possibly consider him in a trait. Absolutely. We get.

"Care. That's kind of why. Because I don't really feel like the nominations are always reflective of what kind of is happening culturally with albums, and how how the how how how how the people are responding. To the music. Exactly. Speaking of music singer, Michelle, you're welcome. I honor your opinion yet. That's great to create a whole segment for you where I feel validated. Validate noon to three Monday through Friday right here on the Colleen and Bradley show. See your Michelle Williams announced in her Instagram stories and opposed that appears to be deleted that her engagement to pastor. Ted Johnson quotes didn't work out. Williamson Johnson announced their engagement in April after he popped the question in March. They met in two thousand seventeen on a spiritual retreat and the timing of the break up is a little awkward as their reality show. Chad loves Michelle has been airing on own after premiering a November. That is a little awkward. Yeah. That's an awkward time. And I wonder what will happen to that show for a minute there when you were telling that story because I don't really generally care about celebrity relationships unless they've taken somebody off the market that we. Don't want to be in a relationship. I thought you said Serena Williams, and I was like she's with a passer. I didn't know that she's telling you, what might brain. Happy Friday and finally validate my opinion, please stay on. I'll stamp it. Oh. The final season a game of thrones is kind of a big deal. Even though none of us watch the show. But the latest trailer is out it's thirty nine seconds long in animated clip, you can see fire and ice spreading through west arrose teaser trailer also confirms that the final season will start April even though that is already been confirmed, but how many seasons again too many so many that will never catch up.

Course talking, about former colts play by play broadcaster Bob Lanier insufferable hacked is one of the worst voices that I've ever heard of lice yet held onto his job covering the Indianapolis Colts, and being a little whiny. Bitch for a really really long, period of time this guy actually in being fired he was fired for making some racist comments actually somehow brought down some NASCAR commentator by the way just yesterday because this NASCAR commentator apparently, was? The, person that. He was telling a story right To be clear but he wasn't he was he was quoting somebody who is making racist comments Yeah he was Made the comments. Of the eighties. Got cans. Yesterday hold. On hold. On, hold on I Colts broadcaster was telling the, story and he quoted a guy directly in the, guy the, guy the colts broadcast. Resigned if you're telling a story about, guy trying to paint him as a, racist but you quote him directly being a racist. Somehow that's why the colts broadcaster got. Fired, I I. Don't I don't understand the whole the whole. Concept I'm pretty confused by the whole thing as. Ellie, yes Derek Daly who has been a freelance race analyst for w. h. TV for thirty. Years Motoracing yes race analysts like no he's not Would take that back I. Would, never. Get fired for, making, racist comments I really don't care business Ace analyst Really careful Crossed gurgles These days I honestly like what he said probably. Is horrible I don't really care though about what the guy said in his. Personal life I think he's a. Crap broadcasters, just horrible. Terrible disgusting and there's a really funny moment in this DVD that. I have it's called, three games. The glory it's about the patriots run to a Super Bowl for the two, thousand four two thousand five season the patriots and colts played each other in the divisional round of the playoffs, that year the colts lost, twenty, two three despite the patriots starting Troy Brown and a bunch of guys off the street at her back this is after the five yard contact will really got enforced season for the. Fourth quarter people were chanting cut that meet in the rafters and no one cares. About that this is just a really amusing NFL. Films compilation you'll hear Gil Santos who actually has a.

Again we're doing that because Feddie Jay no longer with Scott rest his soul we're going to miss you very much, Ted Johnson, and we're, going, to. Start this edition of stuff Landry likes with, our. Fondest. Memories of, the. Late Ted Johnson Lopez you wanna go first yeah because he's not dead Okay okay So my my memory is seeing here before he left quite. Quite. Alive. Yeah Here's I, I can't say, a bad, thing about Ted Johns I, just can't I mean, you could look, you know he's had his his his his demons, and gremlins we all do and we all have and. He's fought his battles but it's hard to find a bad thing about him. My my best recollections of. Ted Johnson or not on, the air at all it's just him being him it's like, what you see I did the post game show, with him a little bit and, I've done some other. Stuff with not regularly but other stuff on the air some TV with. Him He lived in the same building as my son so I would see him out there and that's that's it just Ted. Treating everyone Ted treating everyone the. Same it's like okay pick. One thing I don't know. I mean it's just it's just hard. To to say something bad. About him he's. Legit he's real he's a real dude he's. A real dude teddy j yeah you know that's the thing this is the thing about Ted is that there's a lot of. Times you know athletes they they they do radio and they do radio shows and a, lot of, times they just try to talk about like their. Playing days and. They just, talk about stuff, and they, don't put any work into, their crap Ted tried, as best he, could he would follow the rockets he would follow, the Astros he related to guys who didn't play he. Didn't become no win I play guy he put a lot of effort into. It and I think the. Best thing, about Ted Johnson, is just his energy like it's easy to enjoy the finer, things in life but when you're Ted Johnson and, you can have that much glowing, appreciation for the small Things in life, it's, just a, good energy to be around and I'll give. You an example I'm talking to Ted one time we're at some sort of remote or something and all of a sudden he just starts going off he's like bro. Bro have you seen that movie. Dirty grandpa unlike dirty grandpa. What movie is that and. He's like it's I guess it's a. Robert deniro Zach Ephron movies. I I've never. Seen bad grandpa dirty grandpa something like that. He's already Grammys I think this is the greatness of deniro this is where this is where you just see how great Robert. Deniro is and I was like Ted I think he might be overselling this little bit I saw, the, movies. Like no no bro I'm telling you, bro you just. Got to see it? And that's just, what, do I what Ted Johnson is like, like he, he, lights up about the small, things that, we don't appreciate. Whether it's food. Whether it's listening to a segment and come. In here in San bro that was so funny like he's he appreciates the. Things that we don't, appreciate, the daily basis I said this during the roads During the roasting and I'm gonna, say now because I like doing radio with Ted Johnson because. He makes you feel so smart That's kind of a punch line but it's also. True. Absolutely. Because you. Can you could say the most innocuous simple? Thing. Ted I thought. Wayne Brown rarely played pretty well yesterday yes yes John John any points such plenty points that any banks yes I think the rockets played, all right last night. Yes. Dude dude he. Has like he has a like a lotta. Times, like Pete PG's my dude Paul Galon is my. Dude. But. Sometimes his. British Ness will be like kind of like? Steve Ted has a pleasant bro ish vibe but by Ted's. Brosio Ted's, broach vibe is genuine in the sense that people, forget, Ted, went. To high school in California in a so cow God you know what I'm saying, so I mean it makes, all the sense in the world why he came here but ultimately Saying bro away before bro was thing, to say so I mean. That's been brought it up for you know before bro. Was the thing to say so I. Remember when I did I did radio with Ted one of the first, times he did Ray you actually here in my first stint, as, many you probably remember from back in the. Day but we were doing some we were doing a weekend show and I'll never, forget I get a phone call from Ted, I, was staying at this was back when? I was living in Beaumont and I, was doing radio on the weekends here at six ten and we were doing a Sunday. Morning show we were, doing an eleven to three shall never, forget as long as I live and he calls me up and he says. Hey what kind of coffee do you want because I'm the rookie, upbringing and coffee and I was hungover from. The night before, gimme a caramel macchiato with a double shot so, we come, in we sat NAT studio in a, bag and we talk for an hour and a half and into any show pregnant we just sat there and talked for an hour and a half, and that was just the? Beginning, right there, so of course as you guys should meet Ted to the Fred, Ted show Before I decided to go off off the rails so no I. Mean there's there's all kinds of me let's we did the bench, press challenge I mean I've worked out with. Ted numerous times, and so I am definitely gonna be sad to, see Jay Jay go to bed that's right well Well here's what, happened and this is this is typical and I think that's the thing about me and Ted is that, we have very equal very. Similar energies and so he was talk I'd asked him about. The combine is, right around draft time and I said how? Many times did you do the bench I think he said he did it like, twenty, nine thirty times and I said oh I. Could bench to twenty five, fifteen, times and. He looked me, said, no you. Can't and I said yes I, can and he said that it's on we're going. To do it the bets on it so we went out to lifetime fitness. Over there off a two forty nine and, you. Boy put it. Up sixteen. Times Now here's what I put it The third time No? Ted did it would he do it now Yes Tied in the? Standings He no longer On in the loop took, forty eight episodes but I. Am no longer the only person who has had the On.

"Thank you that was great i would like to thank ted johnson of course and also the brennan center and the new american foundation for uh this invitation on the opportunity to speak to all of you and i really appreciate your coming it's how high of 73 today a really appreciated that i loved the outside so i know you have that choice okay so i'd like to address the connections between political communication social identity and political psychology and by that i mean that hal american elites and american citizens talked about politics reflects how they think and feel about society and the place of different groups within that including both the social groups to which they belong and those that they see as the other as the outsiders that largely symbolic discourse in that thinking shapes political behaviour it shapes the policies and politicians that we support and those that we oppose media discourse in media framing should be seen as one component of that although an important component so i see two themes related to national identity as dominating our political discourse right now and therefore also the american psyche in this moment so first as we've heard many times we have america's changing demographics rate the much discussed idea that america is changing rapidly and that white americans will soon be outnumbered rights of that is framed first of all as a problem the second theme is closely rule later to that and it's that white americans sense that they are under threat that they will lose dominance that they'll lose status and their place in american society the way that the media frame certain public policy issues associating both societal problems and their potential solutions with particular racial groups both reflects and contributes to that sense of threat it pits different groups against one another in competition this media framing certainly helps to exacerbate divisions but it was not created in a vacuum if you look at the 1990s bill clinton for example talked about how progress help every single advancement that has been made has been made on the backs.
