"Or or what I like to do is pack up a bunch of stuff that I don't like. And I don't want any more put in boxes. Stick it under ports, and that way they come to pick up your junk for free guys. Good way to get rid of the porch pirates that way. I've seen some clever ways to try to fight that. All right, Let's talk weather and this is the other side of the country. We were talking about a nor'easter, of course across in England. Now we're still talking about fire danger. And now this is still tracking the bonfire, which Has been contained a little bit more since yesterday up to about 40% containment, but still about 7300 acres have been burned. So far, so more happening, and unfortunately, the same areas are going to be under the gun again for hire fire danger, So this is still the classic set up as we see it often, the Santo Anto wins will start to kick back up as we move in the next couple days. This is tomorrow's outlook so elevated fire danger that could get bumped up to critical fire dangers we had through Monday and Tuesday. Look at the winds as they increase over the next couple of days. That is going to be the one of the biggest driving factors. Of course, they don't see a whole lot of rain. These areas. The less rain they see, of course, makes it difficult, but it's all been about the Issues with the wind more than anything, but our temperatures will stay pretty warm. And as the force like this who wouldn't want to be outside, But this is the scenery, not the temperature When you factor in how cold it feels in Florida with parts of Tampa Bay in the mid thirties, most of us had inside But some make their way outside. Knowing big business begins as manatees make their way to the crystal clear water of Crystal River is you can't have a better office. I wouldn't think so. It's just perfect. Captain Tim Green knows all too well how crucial the cold can be when it comes to his bottom line. For well over a decade. His daily commute to work is just a few feet away. And his day at the office is all about sharing one of our greatest treasures with tourist in the wintertime. We have the spring waters here hearing crystal wherever there 72 degrees year round. They come here. They're protected in the water's warm. Melanie Michael News Nation Tampa That's the place to be if you ask me.

B. we have three guests for you coming up at the top of the hour is a two time pro bowler was a NFL offense alignment for the Oilers and tightens now doing a fantastic job as a talk show host on Sirius XM NFL radio Brad Hopkins will join us as we he will give us a little perspective on the Andrew luck situation from a former player am also delve into what he now views that he now views the AFC south I will do some other NFL happenings with him as the NFL season does start on September fifth I'm sick and tired of the pre season I'm happy this is the final week of the preseason get me to the first NFL Thursday we have a little Packers and bears and then you get the full slate of NFL Sunday it was nice to have a little college football back over the weekend even though Florida and Miami was very sloppy we'll have the full slate of college football this upcoming weekend and then after that the NFL is back and there's nothing better than college football on Saturday you sit on your couch your place your wagers you watch all the games you get your chicken fingers you get the French fries you get your burgers you get your pizza as you're lazy on Saturday and then you're lazy on Sunday again doing a repeat except you're watching the NFL and not college so I'm very excited for that also coming out at what will be for clock will channel college football and also some QB play with the the news on and you lock it also get into little Kyler Murray with the man that was drafted in both the baseball draft and the NFL draft played his college ball Ellis you that's Josh booty joining us at four o'clock AM eastern one a I am Pacific and then finally we will head out to Indianapolis we will go to the scene of the crime as we did find out on Saturday that injured walk is retiring and will be joined by Ken sterling a long time Indianapolis talk shows coming up at five twenty AM eastern to twenty AM Pacific so let's start with what's been the biggest news since Saturday when someone leaked the report to Adam Schefter that Andrew luck was walking away which by the way I would love to know who leaked that report because whoever leaked that report it wasn't their news to tell wasn't their story to tell enter lock is making a very difficult decision he's been a player that was on the road to greatness and he's had some great moments before he's been to four playoff appearances in eighty six games he was fifty three and thirty three and this looked like it was going to turn into one of the great careers that we've seen from a quarterback and there was so much hype there is so much buzz when he came out of Stanford and instantly he took a team from two one fourteen a team that said goodbye to Peyton manning with his injury problems and he took them in their first year eleven five to the playoffs and then made the post season his first three years in the National Football League and after you did that you were thinking wow how lucky is Indianapolis to go from Peyton manning change your lock you had a long relationship with paid and now you're going to have a long relationship with Andrew luck however injuries derailed number tolls career whether it was the shoulder or the ankle and all the ambiguity all the pain all the mental stress eventually did lead him to retiring and it's really unfortunate that this is the case and it's a decision that's going to elicit a lot of response because when the news does break on Saturday we knew luck was battling with a calf problem an ankle problem and we weren't sure of the time line I didn't think he was going to play week one I thought I was going to Mister you know a few games in the opening part of the regular season you thought he was going to return and you'll never forget where you were sitting where you're standing what you were doing when you got that tweet when you got that tax when you got that news no matter how you receive that danger luck was walking away because this is not how this career was supposed to end it's not supposed to end at the age of twenty nine but it did and I I was a buddy of mine as I was at my apartment a buddy of mine told me about the news and I believe and you look on Twitter and your refreshing Twitter at least ten times and then you say holy smokes this actually happened and you lock is walking away and it's such a shame that news leaks because the way it was supposed to go down was that he was going to tell us teammates after the game against Chicago and I was going to have a press conference on Sunday and whoever leaked the story is responsible for the awkward situation of what's standing on the sideline in gym clothes everyone knowing that he retired and then unfortunately him walking off the field and he got booed and the Boeing Avenger lock was idiotic it was stupid I can understand it to some extent only that I don't think it was meant to be done in a malicious nature it was fans hearing news I thought it was disgusting that he got booed he said I got a standing ovation and they should thank them for plying six great years in Indianapolis and taking them to four playoff appearances that reaction though was not out of disrespect intentionally danger lot but that reaction was more so out of frustration and those fans being upset that their franchise quarterback was walking away because they were cognizant of what he meant and the the way his career was supposed to project his they saw the come back first Kansas city in the blouse where there was a fumble he dove on the football and scored a touchdown based on two thousand and fourteen with not a great roster and Ryan Grigson created a manual on how not to operate an organization and a franchise around a franchise when you have the young quarterback when you have the generational talent and even with all the obstacles they put in the way of injure lock in terms of not the best roster his first three years eleven five eleven five eleven five loss wildcard loss divisional round and lost the conference championship the fans saw that come back first Kansas city the fans saw him beating Peyton manning in a playoff game a getting to an AFC championship and they were expecting more they were wanting more and if this is truly a brand your lock which I do believe it is it will always be a career that will leave us wanting more because the small moments the short moments that we've seen we're very special even after all the injury stuff with the shoulder remiss two thousand and seventeen and when he returned in two thousand eighteen the first few games I remember hit look like himself but then by the end of the year he was one touchdown pass away from forty touchdown passes and at the end of the season the colts were red hot the cold going to the plants they win a playoff game before losing to Kansas city so is setting up a year where expectations were high for Indianapolis it's fair if you're a colts fan to think they were going to the Superbowl I personally didn't think any of those teams in the AFC south we're going to the Superbowl I just did a matter who was the team that you picked but now it totally changes can yeah maybe still win the division yeah we seem crazier things happen but it's not likely and you'll see what your Kobe percent is because I don't believe that they're gonna make a trade for you I manning I don't think they're bringing in calling capric maybe they'll bring in another quarterback but I believe that they're going to hand the keys over to Jacoby percent ever gonna see if he could sink or swim and he did play in that two thousand seventeen season the roster though is that now in a much better spot so it's been very compelling and very intriguing and very interesting to hear the reactions and I was on last night fresh off the news story breaking and I heard a lot of reactions and I listen today to our network from time to time and I heard the reactions as well and some people are understanding some people don't understand that some people are upset some people are hurt and some people are angry no matter where the emotions lie what I feel is that I can understand the decision I want to see him retire now selfishly I would love to see him play for another five to ten more years because he was such a fine player to watch however when you are mentally worn down when you are physically worn down and when you made a promise to yourself when you went to the shoulder injury that if you ever got to this spot again were you could in practice and you are feeling this way you would walk away it is admirable and I do respect and I do understand even though I was surprised by the decision and no one saw this coming I do understand the decision by Angela and I actually think that he made the right call because it was his call to make he knows his body he knows the stress he knows the physical pain that is then and I'm sure when the ankle injury was happening and it was he's fine he's fine he's fine any new we wasn't fine he said here we go again and he couldn't give it is all and he said it's time to go this be informed who knows I think it is because there's always that chance even if he does get help you over the next year year and a half that when you come back and return to the National Football League you're back in this spot again after one hit so I do believe that we see in the end of engine block as an NFL player on an NFL field so my question to you whether you like or dislike the decision by Andrew luck whether you're hurt.

"You just saw the pack loss to the bears like every week and just keep saying how much Reeler we think the Chicago Bears are so we're gonna turn the heat up as we do overreaction Monday. It says Rogers won't win another NFC north Highland. Title. Okay. Sheriff in town in the NFC north. This is over reaction. Roger signed a new deal. Didn't he deal like that tell you the next five years that Green Bay doesn't get it sorted out in some way when and if see north title, I'm not buying that? I mean, listen, it was a tough year for Green Bay certainly the division looks like it's improved. And and that's a good thing for but reality is that he's still good. Go ahead. Good players will find a good coach, and they will be competitive Lizzy need boats. Is it that coach is it personnel? What is he most? I think you need to have somebody that he answers, quite honestly, we have somebody that coaches in hard to get the most out of. That's what I think he needs. If they get that this won't be an overreaction, right? I mean, I think it's an over action to just because of how talented he is. When we watch Aaron Rodgers he's graded on a curve when you watch every Rogers play football. And he misses a throw if he misses one through you think the sky is falling. If he misses to you're expecting the great flood to take the world again. And I think we've kind of gotten to that point. This is a guy with over twenty touchdowns and only two interceptions. Yeah. And throw them one and almost four hundred passes or something ridiculous. Like that. And so when you watch Aaron Rodgers it's a different field. We have for me when he gets the pieces around him. You know that this offense will be clicking defensively is where I think they have to get better. They have to find another pass rusher. You have to find someone that can man the middle of the field from the safety position. You also need a linebacker who get sidelined the sideline and make plays. And I believe. Some of the games they've lost this year. At least those have been there's been plays that every Rogers need to make that should have been better. But also defensively not opportunities to get stops when they had leading games and just didn't do any of this. Aaron Rodgers turned thirty five years old earlier this month two weeks ago over than you think. Right. Good thirty thirty five. Yeah. Drew brees. It's thirty nine. I'm Brady's forty one. They're doing right. They're winning division titles. So there's no reason that at some point he's not going to win the NFC north again, maybe multiple times. He's the best quarterback in that division. Still the most dangerous player in that division. Still the most feared player in that division. Still. They have to first round draft picks in the off season. They can have a new coach coming in. They'll have a new atmosphere. New attitude eastern win, Tim. Tim's point though, listening to Adam he spoke about a coach Eddie answers to or somebody that holds them accountable. You think Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have a good working relationship. Absolutely showing Peyton drew Brees a good working relationship. Absolutely. Is there respect their apps? -olutely TIMMY, hit it right on the head. He needs somebody that gets in that position that he can work with and it holds him accountable. So we cranked it up a little bit. Let's just turned all the way up at this point. Overreaction monday. The bears represent the NFC in the Super Bowl overreact for me. They're good football team. And I think their quarterback is is proven that he can play in this league with that being said, I do not like their chances of going to New Orleans and playing the same. We kind of touched on the saints playing in that building. I just I don't know that there's enough firepower on that offense. Yeah, they're creative and they beat up tunes for treat Cohen, and they can't situation. They run the football with Jordan Howard, trubisky's difficult to defend because he's a great athlete and the saints the saints in the saints in that building with a very good defense in their own, right? So I I can't I that's an overreacted over action. If you wanna clown. They are who we thought they were. Let him off letting them taking super..

"Certainly roads. Run around the National Football League. Some interesting match ups with playoff implications here moving forward. Talking about the Bengals raiders game. That's not what we're talking about. But we'll get into a storyline of that raider off the field with their owner Mark Davis here in just a second. But what about what about the falcons and cardinals, no playoff implications here Atlanta? Dan quinn. Got the vote of confidence that he will be back as Falco's head coach it's gone awry, all the injuries for of this year. Ryan's played. Okay. They're coming off a loss last week on the road in Green Bay by the Joe Philbin led a Green Bay Packers. Now, they come back home and take out an Zona team that we saw. Lash a couple of times this year, including the dole win in Green Bay against that in the Mike McCarthy led Packers which ultimately led to his firing. What about cardinals and falcons say down in on? How one of the good things to watch the match up a fully Jones versus Patrick Peterson in this game. That's going to be the real highlight of watching this game. But I for me, I think the Atlanta Falcons and their five game slide, and they win this one at home. I think just the way that they're going to go into it running the football with Kevin Coleman Dido Smith that they're going to be able to balance things up for Matt Ryan. And I'm gonna pick them to win up against the thirty second ranked defense in the NFL. Yeah, you're right. I agree with you. I think they'll run the ball actively today against Arizona. But they've not been able to run the ball affectively this year with the freemen injury. And that clearly is hurt. What wanna do? In their balance. Authencity let's go up to buffalo McDermott and the bills four and nine essay entertain the five and eight Detroit Lions things have not gone the way for my Patricia gear one in Detroit a team that was expected with the Patricia as we've discussed at times Patricia was brought in not to rebuild it in Detroit to take it to another level. They thought Colwell year ago disappointed that were playoff team. He was brought in to get this team to the postseason. They're clearly not going to get there this year when you look at the lions what about lions and bills today up in buffalo now looking at this from and I think that the bills playing this one at home there's going to be whether involved I think they're they're going to have home field advantage. I think when we look at the way that they've been doing things offensively by get. Josh Allen more involved. You could see the confidence and not only running the football. But throwing the football with all the different injuries at the lions have not only to their offense defense but to their offensive line. I'm gonna go with the Buffalo Bills at home. All right. I'd I'd agree with you. I'd go with the bills this afternoon as well. After Chicago we go the bears and Packers Green Bay now. One and. No wonder Joe Philbin. They go into they go into Soldier Field Chicago to take out a bear steam that we know how good their defense is we talked about Trubisky earlier on in the show. I think this is going to be a field goal game. Either way. I think the the Green Bay Packers not saying they're motivated after the McCarthy firing, but we know Rodgers can do things at the quarterback spot. And you know Philbin is going to give that bears defense. A lot of different looks. On on offense that they're going to have to deal with. I think the Green Bay Packers can hang with the bear say I don't think they'll necessarily win the game. But I think this could be a field goal game. That goes Chicago's way. I actually think the bears are going to win by touchdown. I think that they know that you look at the Packers in their desperation mode but facing the Chicago defense at its best Steph. It's a poor time for the Packers facing them. I think that they're going to be able to stop the run and be able to get after Aaron Rodgers offense. The side of the ball. They're going to do just enough to get by of the bears at home. All right. How about to Cincinnati? We go next Bengals raiders all number. First question for the Bengals fan is this that they're going to ask is is this the end, do you think this this year is going to be the end of the Marvin Lewis era in Cincinnati? They're giving it to Hugh.

"Stephan. Hi, how art thou you're well. Brag tell you feel. How great thou? Career you sound up up and alive as it were and CARA is her usual self at the controls in the studio in Washington, which are originating studio radio America originating network, right? So Jennifer time for you to do a report to the nation, please. Oh, this is going to be a big one. It's gonna knock your socks off. Because it's all about your favorite thing. Dougie? It's all about football. How lovely. Okay. Tamp down that enthusiasm. Well, this is I think an interesting story. So John Dorsey who is the general manager of the Browns said last week that he was open to hiring a woman as Cleveland's next coach they're an embattled team to say, the least and one prominent name kind of rose to the top of the team wishlist for this type of interview the Browns would like to interview former secretary of state Condoleeza Rice for the job, according to ESPN now if the Browns follow through if everything worked out Condoleeza Rice would become the first woman to interview for an NFL head coaching job. Now, some of the the news traveled back to Condoleeza Rice who is a very loud and proud at Browns fan, and she went onto Twitter and said, I love my Browns. And I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level on a more serious note. I do hope that the NFL will start to bring women into the coaching profession as position coaches. And eventually coordinators and head coaches one doesn't have to play the games understand it and motivate players, but experience counts, and it's time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches, she continues, by the way, I'm not ready to coach, but I would like to call a player to next season if the Browns need ideas, and at no time will I call for a prevent defense. But there was still going that perhaps the she's just playing coy, and that may be Condoleeza Rice might be in the running for this position. I in hearing this. I actually think there might be onto something here. Maybe it's not Condoleeza Rice. Maybe it's Victoria. Maybe it's care. Maybe it's me someone who just watches like one football game. Maybe a week or maybe three football games a year. Beginner's luck in the sport. Maybe the Cleveland Browns need to bring in someone who has no idea about football at all. About every year. I smelling a reality show here where a bunch of people compete to become the new coach of the Cleveland Browns. Why not think about fantasy football who wins the first year of fantasy football people know, what the heck's going on? So maybe maybe this is just an idea. Throw the rule book out the window for one season. You get to be the. Couple of other sports items laws. We're in that department. Former falcons defensive end Tim green says he's been diagnosed with LS Lou Gehrig's disease. He posted that he's quote, extremely grateful that mine is slow progressing version of the disease. He was on CBS sixty minutes saying quote for the first time in the past five years, I've been coping with some neurological problems in my hands. I did doctors dot the damage done to my elbows and football was the culprits of the operated. Release the nerves, but the issue persisted my voice began to weaken. That's the only reason I've had to stop visiting schools to talk with children. And then Finally I was diagnosed with a LS fifty four years old diagnosis. Yeah. It really is. It's because there's no cure, and there's so many I think there's so many football injuries that are taking people down that path where it's not just CTE. It's lss seems to be really linked to concussions as well. Yeah. Well when you look at what happened on the Sunday games to the Redskins quarterback. Alex Smith got car carted off the field after he was ankle. Right. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Same on the day. The Joe theismann career was over by the same kind of hit.

I think the starting salary for a first year player in the NFL is seven hundred thousand dollars a year and many go on to make more the average length of time. One spends in the NFL is three years. And so in that timeframe, you have three games you get the opportunity to get wacked and sacked and so. And that includes all and that doesn't include all the years leading up to that that you've been playing probably pop Warner, right? You're keizer start. Yeah. You just jump into the game. You've been playing for a long time to get good enough to make it into the NFL. So thought for good Todd for Tim green and others, Alex Smith hope he's going to be all right? Generally, speaking, New Orleans and Philadelphia. Let's see. Let's course. Oh my God. I'm so hard is as the best team in the league. I think so far they. From the Redskins. Oh in that league.

"Thou you're well. Jennifer, I can tell you feel. How great thou Victoria, you sound up up at alive as it were and CARA is her usual self at the controls in the studio in Washington, which are originating studio re America originating network. All right. So Jennifer time for you to do a report to the nation plays. Oh, this is going to be a big one. It's gonna knock your socks off. Because it's all about your favorite thing. Dougie? It's all about football. How lovely. Tamp down that enthusiasm. Well, this is I think an interesting story. So John Dorsey who is the general manager of the Browns said last week that he was open to hiring a woman as Cleveland's next coach they're an embattled team to say, the least and one prominent name kind of rose to the top of the team wishlist for this type of interview the Browns would like to interview former secretary of state Condoleeza Rice for the job, according to ESPN now if the Browns follow through if everything worked out Condoleeza Rice would become the first woman to interview for an NFL head coaching job. Now, some of the the news traveled back to Condoleeza Rice who is a very loud and proud at Browns fan. She went onto Twitter and said, I love my Browns. And I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level on a more serious note. I do hope that the NFL will start to bring women into the coaching profession as position coaches and eventually coordinators in head coaches one doesn't have to play the games understand it motivate players, but experience counts, and it's time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches, she continues, by the way, I'm not ready to coach, but I would like to call a player to next season if the Browns need ideas, and at no time will I call for a prevent defense. But the scuttle bug still going that perhaps the she's just playing coy in that may be Condoleeza Rice might be in the writing for this position. I. I actually think there might be on to something here. And maybe it's not Condoleeza Rice. Maybe it's Victoria. Maybe it's maybe it's me someone who just watches like one football game may be a week or maybe three football games a year either. There's beginner's luck in this sport. Maybe the Cleveland Browns need to bring in someone who has no idea about football at all. It just it was like. Ear smelling a reality show here where people compete to become the new coach of the Cleveland Browns. But I think nine is think about fantasy football who wins the first year of fantasy football people. Don't know what the heck's going on. So maybe maybe this is just an idea. Throw the rule book out the window for one season. You get to be the good. Couple of other sports items laws. We're in that department. Former falcons defensive end Tim green says he's been diagnosed with a LS Lou Gehrig's disease. He posted that he's quote, extremely grateful that mine is a slow progressing version of the disease. He was on CBS sixty minutes saying quote for the first time in the past five years have been coping with some neurological problems in my hands. I the doctors dot the damage done to my elbows football was the culprits of the operated released the nerves, but the issue persisted my voice began to weaken. That's the only reason I've had to stop visiting schools to talk with children. And then Finally I was diagnosed with a LS fifty four hundred diagnosis. Yeah. Really is because there's no cure. And there's so many I think there are so many football injuries that are taking people down that path where it's not just CTE. It's lss seems to be really linked to concussions as well. Yeah. Well when you look at what happened on the Sunday games to the Redskins quarterback. Alex Smith got car carted off the field after he busted his ankle. Right. Yeah. Right. Yup. Same moves on the day. The Joe theismann career was over by the same kind of of hit. It's a dangerous dangerous sport a dangerous dangerous game. And it is an all whether it's the physical the mentally emotional. Granted these people get paid a lot of money. I think the starting salary for a first year player in the NFL is seven hundred thousand dollars a year and many go on to make more the average length of time one spans in the NFL is three years. And so in that timeframe, you have three games you get the opportunity to get wacked and sacked. And so that includes all and that doesn't include all the years leading up to that that you've been playing probably start. I pop Warner right? Kid, and yeah, you know, just jump into the game you've been playing for a long time to get good enough to make it into the NFL. So thought for good thought for Tim green and others Alex Smith hope he's going to be alright. A generally speaking New Orleans, and Philadelphia, let's see. New Orleans them. Oh my God. I'm so hard is there as the best team in the league? I think so far they. One of the Redskins. I the her in that league. Yeah. Yeah. Rambling only lost one which is pretty good for them. Yep. Fourteen after the hour. You're listening to the JV program with Jennifer, Victoria, Karen, Doug. This car. I'm driving high overpaid big time. It was such a mistake.

"Then they actually chatted about the announcers chat about maybe possibly getting rid of that kickoff. Yeah. I don't think that's going to happen. Thank you, Greg. They want to get rid of it without getting rid of it. Because you you still have to have the the element of surprise with the onside kick you have to have that. But you don't I mean, that's why you have the NFL it's rare. When you have somebody returning a kick because he's kickers are so good. And if you move them up far enough, then you're you're going to eliminate the kickoff without without official eliminating the kickoff, and that's what college would want to do the same. Ample? The Ivy league has instituted a rule a couple of years ago where you could take a fair catch on any kickoff and get the ball at the twenty five. And I watch a lot of Ivy league football. They do it all the time. Now guys will take even at the ten yard line. They'll put a fair catch up the Ivy league had a study last year that kickoff concussions are down sixty eight percent. Based off this new rule. I could see within the next five years the Ivy league leading the charge and just eliminating the kick off and say, you know, onside kicks that's a casualty of this. But we're going to be I. I mean, they might. I mean, the the IV started out with these robotic tackling dummies Dartmouth did that so I can see them if they're going to be ahead of the curve there. But they do want to eliminate the kickoff because of the violence because of the speed the build up speed there. But I don't know if you can do it and still keep the onside kick because we love the onside kick. I don't know if you can have both. But I think that's what the NCW would certainly wanna do. Yeah. Fritzy? Wouldn't it be strange, especially when you think about the Super Bowl and all those flashing lights when when a game stocked with a kickoff? And that's where we're so used to all over the is the official start of any football game to not have that in someone just comes trotting out with his team. And they start with the ball at the twenty th. Well, what if you just did the kickoff to start each half? And that's it. So you did get a kick off. And then you started the second half with a kickoff or you just did the first half with a kickoff. And then you start the second half with you got the ball to twenty five. I don't know if for headed there, it feels like we are by the way, if you did not see sixty minutes last night, the final story Steve Kroft the profiled Tim green, Tim green. Former Atlanta falcon defensive lineman. Really one of the brightest people who's ever played the game. A Syracuse grad, and he wrote a lot of books in fact, retired to write books and also he was broadcaster for FOX. And he's got a LS. I mean, you want to look at a guy who looked like Christopher Reeve. He looked like superman superman and Tom Cruise just a bright fund brilliant guy. And he's battling a all s and you know, they they all say the same. I wouldn't change anything. And look that. That's you know, from his perspective his prerogative. But you know, what role does football player in this? I don't I don't think it's just a coincidence. And he even said that twenty years earlier when Steve Kroft interviewed him, and he said, look, this may take years off my life. But in a very very powerful, very very powerful sad because Tim green, and he's still writing doesn't affect your mind, but you know, bodily functions his speech was slurred has a little bit harder time getting around. But. It was very very impactful. If you get a chance, and you're able to watch that very powerful Lanny in Montana..

"Of running the table and getting into the playoffs. Got a great Monday night football game tonight. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six we'll get the jets back in action after a week off. It's amazing. How you think about the bye week in two ways like the bye week for the jets was perfect. If they wanted to make a coaching change because then you'd have a couple of weeks prepare get everything in order and some extra time with the new head coach. It's also perfect. If you want people to stop hammering you because you go away, we're just so focused on whatever. The next thing is everybody pound pound pound pound pound on the jets. And then they don't play this week a bunch of stuff happens in the NFL. And we forget that they exist. But unfortunately for them they've got more games to play and the next game that they play against the New England Patriots were thinks she'd get very very ugly, very very quick. And then we're back at the same situation. But I hope we see Sam darnold back. That's what I think will happen, and hopefully he'll finish the year strong, and he'll be a refresh coming back and practicing this week. And I'm sure either today or tomorrow, the writers will start, you know, getting back to the coaching staff and the players and all that other stuff and then looking forward to what this final six weeks are going to bring for them. It doesn't look very good. But by virtue of the giants winning yesterday. The New York Jets have picked up a draft slot as they move into the fourth spot and the giants now moved down to the fifth spot. Right. Absolutely. All right. Let's go to Brian in Yonkers Brian. What's happening? Good morning. I watched a program last night as I normally do on CBS, sixty minutes. Yup. It was very very, informative and heart wrenching. You may know the man he played many years nine years. I think for the falcon eight years Tim grain you're talking about the former Syracuse. Yes. And I I just think it was an eye opener. And with Lou Gehrig's, I'm very familiar with neurological problems, having my wife, a form NYPD member having had a Stoker, no nine actually, it was January second and dealing with new new doctors of neurology and everything and I know the severity of some of these problems. And I watched that man. And I think it was just a great learning event for me. And maybe if they wouldn't mind they should maybe. So or not so that's not right. They should maybe show his interview in the locker rooms for the guys to see in the NFL to learn what possibly you can protect yourself. Or maybe. Getting better healthcare. I don't know. It's just I have had many friends of mine who played that position or line positions and the NFL Dave Butz. Dave foley. Call silent who we lost a big gas choice in the late sixties added Notre Dame, and I live across the street from very fine. Well, established well known back in the day defensive back. Eric bonds who played in the era with Frank Gifford. Why pedal in which is in great shape? Thank god. But you know, this was just an eye opener. It really was and Brian I've had a similar experience with Steve Gleason documentary who is saints player who is also dealing with L S O J brigades. There are about thirty thousand people who suffer from LS and there's an inordinate amount of players. Former players who are dealing with what Tim green announced his past week or two weeks ago. I know who Tim is Tim did a number of my games as a broadcaster. I played against them in the NFL. I think he was on a Syracuse team that I played against as well when I was in Maryland and one of our steady Cam holders Claus who works with us. CBS was a former teammate of his and and saw saw him when he was in in studio and for class, it was kind of an eye opening and talk a little personal here. But he was kind of an eye opening thing seeing Tim the way saw him because what he remembered of Tim was that he was so vibrant, and so full of life, and I give Tim a lot of credit for being brave about coming forward with it. I know he has five children. I know he lives in New York up near Liverpool. The other thing too is is that, you know, he said back in one thousand nine hundred six on sixty minutes that most players would give up years of their life at the end of their life in order to experience what we experienced this players on Sunday in the NFL, and I actually agree with him. He he was very forthcoming of that. And in this latest interview, he basically said the same thing he agreed with himself about what he said back in ninety six. You know, it's a risk that we all take when we bought on the field. It's kind of like that. We all take when we get behind the wheel of a car. You never know what may happen where it may come. But you wanna live your life to the fullest for those of us who played in the NFL, and I played an era where they didn't really talk about concussions much like they do now. But I think because of what has happened Steve Gleason OJ grants. What's happening to Tim green NFL is obviously taken steps on the field to hopefully make it safer for the players. And that's why you hope today's players understand. Why these rules are the way they are. So the more players that come out like, Tim and are willing to share their story. The more impact it will have on today's players, which is really the best thing that can come out of this. Yeah. Absolutely. And sometimes, you know, for guys like, Brian or watching it, and it's heart wrenching and all that. I mean think about someone who's playing in the NFL right now or someone who finished their career. It says well, wait a second. This this could happen to me too. So that's why a lot of these guys. Of course, go public with their story and talk about it for the awareness of it. And like, I said one of the most. Emotional documentaries. I've ever seen in my life was the one about Steve Gleason because he actually was filming his life for something else when he got the diagnosis when he was actually going to doctors appointments and filming a documentary about his life. So it walks you through the entire diagnosis and deterioration and its wife and the kids, and it was just like I mean, it is something else. It really we. We all have our own experiences. And my my experiences are kind of in line with tens in a sense that I I loved every minute of playing in the NFL, and I would never ever ever change. What I was part of even the losing teams. There's just something so unique. And so you can never recreate that and very few people get a chance to do it at that level and get paid what we got paid even even back when he played I played we get paid. Well, compared to what was going on around us today. The players are getting, you know, five six seven times more than we are even ten times more than. We are in some in some instances, so. I don't know. I think if you ask today's players they love every minute of it. They love when those guys put those uniforms on and come out of those locker rooms tonight for Monday night football between the chiefs, and the Rams they know that the entire country is going to be watching them. They know that that it's a once in a lifetime experience for them to be a part of and hopefully for them for Patrick Mahomes. It lasts for another ten years. And I was fortunate with the plan one Super Bowl, and I remember walking on that field on this is the most amazing experience that I could have ever asked for as a human being as an athlete, and it gave me everything that I could have ever asked except for the win. But that doesn't know at the end of the day. It's the experience that was really what matters. And then the fact that you fought through that season with your teammates. Yeah. In today's NFL player has got much more information and much more research behind all of this. So they educated decisions on their future. My big problem with the NFL years ago was when they would hand out pamphlets at said, no there's no connection between playing foot. Football. And and see. Totally different now. So I mean now that it used to be compared to the tobacco industry with some allies ever is going on. That's not happening now. So now everybody who who suits up and plays. They have the information that they need to make decisions about their future. But also remember yesterday, we're watching a giant game. And they take a player off the field. And they put them in the tent. Yeah. Because they think that there's a potential that maybe he had a concussion. He thing this head it didn't look, right. And he came out of that tent. And did what he went nuts. I mean, he through the tent down through something else. I mean, he why? Because he was frustrated disgusted that he had to go through that protocol. I'm sure that's why he did it because you can never really see the future. I mean, you're in that moment, you don't even think about it. And that was Landon Collins. Of course, I remember back in the day. I sitting on the bench, and those guys are the, you know, the trainers taking a finger going like this across your face. And seeing if you're is is we're following the finger, right? And then they're asking you who you are. Where are you? How old are you? If you're married or kids know, what are your kids names that kind of thing? Yeah. I remember asking Ryan Clark when he was still playing the Steelers safety is now on ESPN when a lot of this stuff was was happening. We're talking about concussions, and it was right around the time, maybe that movie came out and I asked him about. And he said he's like, I know I'm going to be messed up later in life. I don't know about that. And what he said, but I'm just a that struck me. It was like wait a second. So he's like, but I but I still wanna play. That's what I wanna do. He's already messed up kid. Maybe. Striking to me that it was like he said, I'm fully aware of what the game could do to me. I still play as long as I possibly. I saw the movie concussion. Yeah. I walked out of there because it was so slanted in one way. I felt like I was a complete victim at that moment. I walked out, man. They screwed me. They lied to me. Right. But then again, I wondered to myself what I do it any differently, but they did lie about what I do it any differently. Probably not no not at all. I mean, I heard part yesterday or or maybe it's Friday talking about JP want a phone call or something when they traded him and all this other stuff, and Bart was talking about, you know, he blew his finger off and he came back and he played for you guys. This is bullcrap. You. Gotta appreciate all this. And then Bart was talking about his own towel. And how he was trying to play through a toe injury and his playing throw. It also created another ligament injury in his foot. If I hurt him, right? And I was just saying like this is why. The rules are the way they are today is to protect the player from themselves. So in BART's mind, he gave everything he possibly could to the New York Jets to help them win. But the jets bein or the team's mind in this case just happened to be the just they're paying him salary. And you're making those decisions put yourself on the field too bad, right, Dan. We're going to move away from me somewhere. Yeah. I mean, I wouldn't compare those two what GDP did was pure stupidity with Bart was doing is trying to help his team right here. But we all we all felt like we're trying to help our team. You know, no matter what the injury was whether it be a concussion or a twisted ankle. And I played four games for the jets with an ankle that I had no business being on the field with Pete Carroll is like you've got to get out there, we need you. And I'm playing with a soft cast on my ankle..

"Sounds very promising to me. I've also learned about your taste in books you you like to read books by a writer named Tim green. What kind of books does? Right? So he writes books about sports, usually football and baseball, but the main character is always he always has some kind of challenge. So he's always overcoming that challenge at the end of the book to green incidentally, was a professional football player and a writer, and in the nineteen nineties commentator on NPR's morning edition, and he played for the before that he played for the Atlanta Falcons, which that's complete coincidence you, you have the thing about falcons, particularly peregrine falcon. Yes, yes. So the peregrine falcon is my favorite animal, and that's because it's really fast and but it's small. So you wouldn't think that it would be so. Incredible because it's so small. So the way it hunts, it gains up speed and then it kind of charges that the smaller bird or the prey, and then it kind of knocks into the other bird and it makes it dizzy like knocked out and then it can just eat it. To bird bird with a plan with a sense of strategy. Jerry, thank you very much for talking and for playing. It's really wonderful..
